Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

NEKROPOUS. 

By W. Harvey McNairn, Toronto, '99. 

(Written in Hamilton CoUege bnrial-sronnd.) 

Here on the hill 
Are gathered side by side the honored dead, 
Who in past years had championed truth, until 

Their day had sped. 

After the years, 
A^Tien day by day their toil had ever been 
To search for truth and finding, seek the ears 

Of Qinton's men : 

After the toil, 
The endless toil ; and, as their heads grew white. 
The weariness ; beneath the dewy soil 

They face the night. 

On every hand, 
The venerable halls they loved so well 
Amid their elms and soft deep grasses stand. 

And that same bell. 

Which as of old, 
Still marks the ceaseless flight of hours that sped. 
To add their sum to all that now have rolled 

Across their bed; 

And far away. 
Are those green hills, that at the break of mom, 
Thus touched with gold, reflect the earliest ray 

Of day new-bom. 

And so here lies 
The dust of those great teachers, silently 
Awaiting the first gold of that sunrise 

Which ushers day. 



2 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

THE HAMILTON CONVENTION* 

By Byron Reed, Union, '06. 

ENJOY the convention ? Well, rather. I'd rather have been there than 
"to have held Teddy Rooseveh's hat for five minutes in fever-stricken 
New Orleans the other day," as our toastmaster put it. What left the 
strongest impression on you ? The banquet ? The theatre ? Not so here. Ill 
forget them in time. Two figures form the prominent feaitures in Delta 
Upsilon's Seventy-first Convention, Ridgway and KK's representative, 
Corrigan. Do you agree? 

Well, to begin, Wednesday evening we were warmly welcomed at 
the station by Hamilton representatives and registered at the Bagg's hotel, 
where we began art once to get acqtninted with men from all over. After 
a welcome supper, an informal smoker was held in the dining room, 
where everyone met everybody else and said the same thing over with 
variations, while the double quartette did their level best to get our wan- 
dering attention. However, we did applaud conscientiously, whether 
we'd listened or not. After a while Brother Goldsmith mounted a chair, 
and stooping to avoid the ceiling, aniiotmced in a really serious tone that 
the business session would begin at nine sharp, not ten minutes past 

After a good sleep and a breakfast which tasted good when we got 
it — for if anticipation is the truest pleasure, our most pleasurable hours 
were spent in Bagg's dining-room — we hastened up Genesee street to the 
hall, in order to be in time for the nine o'clock session. The Executive 
Council arrived at about a quarter of ten, and the first business session 
was opened. Don't let's dwell on the details, other than to mention the 
exceptionally good address of welcome, and the fine report of the Execu- 
tive Council, which showed a vast amount of work done during the past 
year. Of course we forgot to bring our credentials. Did you? 

After adjournment, luncheon was in order at the hotel and we began 
to feel really acquainted with each other and almost able to tell where most 
of the men came from. The second business session was more exciting. 
Most of the amendments were railroaded through in short order, but 
when it was argued that because we could not adequately pay the Sec- 
retary of the Executive Council, we ought to reduce his present salary 
by two-thirds, we kicked. Then Brothers Penfield and Crossett had an 
interesting little tilt over an unimportant amendment, and as a result, 
it was tabled. When the amendments were attended to, the Columbia 
senior delegate started the ball rolling by suggesting something, which 
be was "certain would be put through," in the shape of a fraternity 
hat-band. I've forgotten the exact design, but, at any rate, Rutgers began 
the opposition by considering it "too trivial a matter" to be discussed. 
Columbia wondered whether a hat-band was any more trivial than the 
whistle, considered last year. Alas! It received the same treatment as 



THE HAMILTON CONVENTION 3 

the sweet little whistle. Cheer up, Columbia. It ought to be mentioned 
that Minnesota Alumni's representative was instructed to vote "no" 
to everything, willy-nilly. He was faithful unto death. 

After supper we went to the Majestic and occupied the entire front 
half of the house. Williams, from a lofty box, seemed to enjoy the 
performance as well as the rabble below. Marie! Marie I Marie Marie I 
Decked out with gold and blue ribbons, the sweet-voiced, unaffected 
little star left a good impression. Her songs, catchy and cute, were taken 
up and sung with a will by the fellows. During the intermission wt 
had a house-warming of our own — sang and yelled, finally hunting up 
a delegate to pound die box, rising to a man, and making the welkin 
ring with the Fraternity Ode. The rest of the audience clapped enthu- 
siastically. After the theatre, we went home to bed, of course. 

At about ten-thirty Friday morning, the last business session opened. 
The delegates from KK of Illinois were brought in. Corrigan, in a 
plain, able, honorable speech, with no attempt at "frills," took the con- 
vention off its feet, and precipitated a tempest of applause. After they 
had retired, Michigan, Wisconsin and others endorsed them. The dele- 
gates of one chapter asked for an informal ballot; it was one long 
"Aye." Amidst a terrific uproar they disregarded instructions and 
made the formal ballot unanimous. What a reception there was when 
Corrigan and his two companions came in. With a few simple words he 
expressed their thanks and a ripple of laughter greeted the inspiration of 
Brother Harris, who furnished the new pledge buttons wWch were put 
on the Illinois men by Brother Norton. Another incident to be remem- 
bered was Minnesota's suggestion that the pin be worn only on the vest. 
Someone asked plaintively, "Sposin' I hain't got no vest on?" Minne- 
sota rejcrined that out there they usually wear something, and the 
matter was tabled. Brother Goldsmith, thinking that his amendment in 
regard to alumni subscribing to the "Quarterly" had been passed too 
hastily, moved to reconsider it. Everybody except Harvard thought that 
it was O. K., and ought to stand, so we turned cbwn his motion in order 
to uphold his amendment. By the way, you didn't second any motions, 
did you, Northwestern or Lehigh, or California? 

After this session we congregated on the Post Office steps and were 
taken by "the man behind the tripod." Chicago led the singing and 
Michigan Junior the mashing. After the suspense was over, we hur- 
ried to the hotel, fed, and took the trolley to Qinton. 

The time on the way up was spent in singing and listening. When 
we reached Clinton, we were transferred to hacks and conveyed to Ham- 
ilton's beautiful campus. After wandering at>out the grounds, we gath- 
ered in the Chapel to hear the Literary Exercises. The history was 
really exciting, and when the dear old white-headed, snowy-bearded 



I 



4 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

firsft President of the Hamilton Chapter, Waldo, of 1848, was brought 
forward, there were misty eyes in the audience. i 

And then, Ridg^ay. After declaring himself a plain business man, 
and no orator, he held the whole crowd spell-bound for twenty-five 
minutes in what was the truest type of "oration" ever heard at a con- 
vention. Original thought of high order, fearlessly, clearly, and grandly 
expressed, such was Ridgway's speech. Weren't you glad you were a 
Delta U. after hearing him ? 

After the exercises we went down to Hamilton's fine chapter house 
and regaled ourselves on doughnuts and cider. Yum, yum ! And then, 
back to Utica. Something was the matter with the "juice" on the way 
back but with such a forcible, magnetic crowd, the cars couldn't entirely 
stop, and we used personal magnetism, and hot air to help us on. 

"Presto chango!" and we were in dress suits, seated aroimd beau- 
tifully decorated tables at the banquet. Songs, and yells, and yells and 
songs, filled in between mouthfuls and courses. After finishing the feed- 
ing process we hurried around, getting autographs. Wonder if I got 
yours ? 

Wasn't the toastmaster a corker? Seems to me it's a crime to wait 
until a man's filled up and then make him laugh until he's sore. Just one 
bit of repartee ought to be recalled. Brother Blair, Toastmaster, referred 
to Methusaleh and the other ancients, who, despite their long lives, seemed 
worthy of record chiefly because they begat someone else. "How much 
we might accomplish if we could but live a few hundred years," he said. 
In his speech a little later President Stryker of Hamilton referred to 
"Toastmaster Blair lamenting that he had not as many children as Methu- 
saleh." 

Toastmaster Blair (interrupting) : "I shall invest in an incubator 
at once." 

President Stryker : "Well, you've been laying for me all the evening.** 

Brother Ridg^ay closed the toast list with a short and able speech, 
and after the report of the Committee on Resolutions had been adopted, 
we adjourned and "Goodbyes" were in order. 

Vale. 

The banquet's o'er, the play is done, 

The faces fade, the voices gone; 
The days of mirth, so loth to last 

Have joined the dreamland of the past. 
But Inspiration cannot die, 

And graven deep in Mem'ry lie 
The stalwart forms, the ringing cheer; 

The songs, still faintly sweet, we hear ; 



THE LITERARY EXERCISES 

The hand with hand-clasp still a-tingle, 
The clean-cut faces still commingle, 

Reminders dear of God-sent food ; 
A taste of glorious brotherhood.

THE TROLLEY TRIP* 

THAT was a gjeat scheme to corral us for the Literary Exercises. 
No one wanted to miss the trolley ride to Qinton, and after we 
had teard that interesting history by Brother Powell, touching on the 
early days of the Hamilton chapter, and that inspiring oration by Brother 
Ridgway, no one was sorry he came. Will you ever forget that oration r 
The trolley trip back was better than the trip down. The "Quarterly" 
should have had a reporter on each car instead of only one. What did 
it matter that the load was a little heavy for the current? When someone 
remarked. "This car must be run by milk!" who was inspired to add: 
"and the heifer's lost!"? "Tammany" was responsible for some g^eat 
parodies. The "gasolene" chorus was very pat. Here's another : 

Utica, Utica 

First we loaf for half an hour, 

Then we have to stop for power,

Brother Ridgway was embalmed in verse and song to the air of 
"Lydia Pinkham" thus: 



6 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

We will sing of Erman Ridgway 
And that wonderful speech of his, 

How he put it all over the ladies 

Because they arc no good for biz. 

And then we reached Utica and it was a grand rush into the starched 
breast plates that made all fraternity men look alike to President Stryker 
at the banquet. 



THE CONVENTION BANQUET* 

REALLY we did not expect such a good banquet. The program (as 
corrected) did not tell us all that was to oome. We didn't know all of 
the speakers very well until afterward. But we knew then what we would 
have missed if we hadn't been lucky enough to be there.

As I say, we didn't quite know what was coming. But when Toast- 
master Blair started the speaking we knew we were in for a good time. 
He struck from the shoulder. He gave the keynote when he called for 
the young man of the day to "have more get up and get — more Jerome- 
ism." His vigorous introductions started every speaker at his best and 
his startling repartee during the speeches added immensely to the fun. 
He took occasion, too, to say a word for the "Quarterly," which was well 
advertised through the whole convention. Brother Goldsmith isn't as 
green as the cover of his magazine. 

Professor Brigham brought on a storm of applause when he referred 
to the fact that two years was spent at G)lgate by Brother Charles E. 
Hughes, Brown, '81, and again when he spoke of "Brother Jerome, what 
he has done, is doing and shall do." 

President Stryker of Hamilton College, a Sigma Phi, won our hearts 
when he said: "When I heard that strong, virile speech this afternoon 
and saw how it was received I knew I was in the company of a body 
of men — real men." President Stryker now lives in the house in which

the Hamilton chapter was founded. This was news to him. He said, 
"That accounts for the air of sanctity I have noticed." His application 
of our motto and our monogram was strikingly good : "Duty the Under- 
pinning." 

Brother Gifford gave a serious talk enlivened by some good stories 
and Brother Ridgway justly complained that he had done enough without 
substituting for Brother Jerome. "Hereafter it's me for the light under 
the bushel," he said. He referred to the work of reform in New York 
City, saying, "The crimes of the times were shown through a medium 
controlled by a Delta U. The Legislative insurance investigation is being 
conducted by a Delta U., and when Hughes is through the work will be 
handed over to another Delta U., District Attorney Jerome." He did not 
say that the medium referred to was Everybody's Magazine^ published by 
the Ridgway-Thayer Co. 

As usual the cheering was a prominent feature of the banquet and 
there were one hundred and ninety voices to join in the cheers for each 
speaker. The singing was exceptionally good. One of the "old-timers" 
remarked on the fact that there were more good songs of the individual 
chapters and colleges than usual. The flowers at the speakers' table 
were the gift of the Hamilton Chapter of Sigma Phi. Brother John 
S. Briggs presented the Rochester collection of Delta U. songs that was 
at each place. 

The banquet closed with "America" to which the McGill and Toronto 
boys added a verse of "God Save the King." Truly it was a good 
convention. 



FROM THE KK CLUB 

THE news that the Delta Upsilon Fraternity had granted a charter to 
the KK Qub was received at the house at noon Friday, October 27. 
That the news was received with enthusiasm by the members of the club 
is needless to say. For the past six weeks the thing uppermost in the 
mind of every KK was the outcome of our petition. We had worked 
hard to get in touch with the chapters of the fraternity, and the result 
was impatiently awaited. When the good news came, all the troubles 
and disappointments of the past were forgotten in the thought that we 
were soon to be members of the Delta Upsiton Fraternity. 

Our feeling of satisfaction is greatly intensified by the most sincere 
and hearty congratulations we have received from all sides. From fra- 
ternities, sororities, members of the Faculty, and individual students we 
have received evidences of the outside interest in our success. In Ae 
words of one of the local chapters, "It is with a feeling of satisfaction 
that we see added to the fraternities at Illinois one of such high standing 



8 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

and splendid record as Delta Upsilon." And from the Dean of Under- 
graduates, "I am glad to see such a good fraternity has been secured by 
such a good collection of fellows." 

It will not be without some feeling of regret, however, that we shall 
see the passing of KK. For the past three years our organization has 
exerted a strong influence in University affairs. In the face of many 
difficulties we have g^wn and prospered, and commanded respect and 
recognition from the University community. Hence, we feel that we are 
giving up a name that means much to us. Yet we hope that the same 
principles and traits that made KK respected and honored win make the 
chapter of Delta Upsilon to be established at Illinois, one that the fra- 
ternity may point to with pride.

MONEY AND THE MAN- 

By Erman J. RiDGWAY, Northwestern, '91.* 

THERE can be no doubt that today as never before, in politics, in busi- 
ness, in the home, the money question is the paramount issue. So 
much has been said about it that even the women almost understand it, 
while the men are in danger of becoming utterly confused. 

Because I know a little about money and more about man, and because 
the question is timely and therefore interesting, but most of all because 
I hope to clear away some of the confusion and help you to see them in 
their true relations, I have chosen for my subject, "Money and The Man." 
An explanation is due the women present for omitting them from 
the discussion. I might plead that attaching the subject to them would 
put it beyond my comprehension; that only young men and ex-Presi- 
dents may speak with authority on woman's place and rights. Such a 
plea would be cowardly evasion. The truth is I omit woman because 
woman has no place in the subject. In full realization of the possible 
serious consequences to myself, I make this daring unqualified assertion. 
In practical business aflFairs, woman is a cipher. Woman has never 
known, does not now know, and probably never will know anything about 
monev. And she never should. 

* Oration delivered at the Literary Exercises of the seventy-first annual convention off 
the Delta Upsilon Fraternity, Clinton, N. Y., October j6, 1905. 



MONEY AND THE MAN ii 

The millions of girls employed in offices and factories at starvation 
wages ought to be in school. Not so much because they are robbing 
men and driving them to the road, but because they are robbing them- 
selves — selling their birthright. And through no wish of their own, yen 
may be sure. It is another of those ghastly crimes against humanity 
committed for gold and in the name of business. Woman does not need 
to be told her place by ex-President Qeveland or President Roosevelt 
or anybody else. Her intuition, her heart, whispers it to her long before 
she has put on long dresses ; and woe to her who hearing does not heed. 
To her who hears and heeds the sweetest joys of life are given. Joys 
which men can never know. Woman has a work compared to which 
the work of making ephemeral fortunes is puny and ignoble. Woman 
makes everything good in the world including good men. Her work 
is fundamental. Her power is primate. Her sphere is from everlasting 
to everlasting. 

May I repeat, woman knows nothing about money, cares nothing 
about business. She has no part in the mad scramble for dollars. She 
is jealous of it, she resents it, she deplores it. Man may have superior 
reasoning faculties, but through wcmian's instinct is the way of Redemp- 
tion. The man who advises with a good wife or mother never gets far 
from right and happiness. The nation that most honors women captains, 
the MTorld. The spoiled beauties who drown their souls in a perfumed 
bath of luxurious futility have lost their way. I remember one who went 
from New York to Chicago in her private car attended by a retinue of 
servants, to consult Dr. N. S. Davis. She was obliged to await her turn 
in the office of the old democrat doctor with the common herd and when 
finally admitted to put her dollar consultation fee on the table just like 
the rest. After half an hour's interview, Dr. Davis said: "Madam, 
you have a country place?" "Yes, Doctor." "Have you by any chance 
a spring on the place?" "Why, yes, about half a mile from the house." 
"Well, I prescribe that you go twice a day to that spring and drink a 
pint of water." "But, Doctor, I came way out here in my private car 
to learn what is wrong." Madam, your malady is not treated in the books 
of my profession. The trouble with you as I diagnose your case is you 
are just plain lazy." 

Now to my theme. Money and The Man. Money is a great con- 
venience. You are not likely to forget that. Imagine the consternation 
of Mr. Dunlap if I were to offer him fifty copies of Everybody's Maga- 
zine as pay for my hat. What wouldn't the New York Central ticket 
agent say if I were to poke a couple of hundred magazines through his 
window for my ticket to Utica and back ? He would have to stop selling 
tickets and go to selling magazines to get his money back. What would 
the poor wife of the man who makes threshing machines do when she 
needed pin money? The college professor would be obliged to leave 



12 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

portions of his brain with the grocer and the tailor and the ticket agents 
which would not profit them and would leave him poor indeed. Money 
is a great convenience. Of late, there has been a heap of hysteria about 
tainted money. There is only one kind of tainted money — counterfeit 
money. I can remember when stolen apples tasted very sweet 
Would I steal apples now? No. Woirid I accept stolen property ir 
Well, that depends. If the property had been stolen in such a 
way that it could not possibly be returned, I might permit myself 
to be persuaded to assume the responsibility of putting it to good 
use. If the thief were driven by his conscience to disgorge, it would be 
positively unchristian to deny him the opportunity. I believe that money 
can be accepted from big thieves without in any sense justifying or even 
palliating thievery^ To me, the worst features about accepting money 
from a Rockefeller or a Carnegie is the humiliation. It seems like 
colossal effrontery for Carnegie to take our money from us by the millions 
and give it back to us by the mills. And we take it and say: "Thank 
you, Mr. Carnegie, Laird of Skibo, we will put your name on the library 
and we will tax ourselves to support it. You are a fine man, Mr. Car- 
negie, a fine and clever man. Your trust takes out of our community every 
year in excessive prices enough to build a dozen libraries, but we haven't 
brains enough to stop it — not brains enough in our community, not brains 
enough in our Congress, not brains enough in our entire country." A 
humiliating confession, I say. But, say our legislators, we must protect 
our infant industries. Rather a husky infant, that Steel Trust. What 
grinds me hardest is their selling abroad fifty per cent cheaper than they 
do at home. No! That community which has public spirit enough, 
and self respect enough to decline Mr. Carnegie's offer and build its own 
library has my profound admiration. But as long as such a community 
is the exception, we would better go on accepting libraries and getting 
.as much good as possible out of a bad matter. It is but fair to Carnegie 
.and his kind to admit that the world is full of would-be Camegies. The 
rspirit that made him and the homage that exalts him are of a kind. 

Society may be likened to a beautiful shrub. The rich are the flowers. 
But the shrub made the flowers and if they are not fragrant whose the 
Tesponsibility ? America is the only nation that has ever given itself com- 
;pletely over to the empty labor of piling up money. When Greece had 
enough to live on, she gave her time to art and her art has not since 
been equalled. Some of the Europeans have, I think, learned a better 
way than ours. Men who retire between the ages of forty and fifty are 
•common in France. They do not give up business suddenly, but work out 
of it gradually. They give their sons and other peoples' sons a chance. 
The benefit to themselves and in time to the nation cannot be computed. 

Has every man his price? "I wouldn't do it for a million dollars." 
•Of course not. The price is so high and the contract so definite that no 



MONEY AND THE MAN 13 

sophistry can wheedle me into trading my honor. But many a man would 
turn down a million dollar offer who sells his honor for a trifle. The 
clerk who has gambled and means to pay it back. The man who needs 
it to tide over his business. The Congressman who is living beycMid his 
means. The lawyer who must look after his client's interests. Before 
a stark naked bribe, most men are honest. But dress it in the clothes of 
custom and only the strongest will pass it without bowing. 

The phrase "I wouldn't trade places with Rockefeller" is well nigh 
universal. Pin down the next man who uses the phrase. Ask him why 
he wouldn't change places with Rockefeller. Old, bald-headed, bad 
stomach, impopular. There remaineth these three, >'outh, digestion and 
popularity and the greatest of these is popularity. 

It is a deplorable fact that we are taught to hold the respect of the 
community in higher esteem than our self-respect. Because we could 
not have our self respect in Rockefeller's place ought to be our reason 
for being unwilling to change places with him. We are responsible for 
the Rockefellers and all the rest. We made their business respectable. 
Our innocence at first, then our admiration for success. Then our pathetic 
homage. Remember what you and I and Carnegie did for poor Charlie 
Schwab. A clean, able, young fellow, hard working, ambitious. Car- 
negie put him at the head of the Steel Trust. The newspapers and maga- 
zines featured him extravagantly. We bowed in the dust. No wonder 
he lost his head. Money success makes brutes or beasts or fools of most 
men and still the best brains in America go on striving for it. 

Have you realized how many books end with the hero coming into 
a fortune? How many plays turn on the making of money? How many 
children are literally driven into the conviction that the making of money 
is the purpose of living. Money, money, money! The great trusts for 
money! The great strikes for money! The Slocum horror for money! 
Wars for money! Peace for money! Get rich quick money! Adul- 
terated food money ! Patent medicine money ! Bribed legislatures, robbed 
widows, broken homes, betrayed trusts ! ! Wall Street, the gambling hell, 
the brothel, the thief in the night, the assassin in the dark, the gallows ! 1 ! 

The love of money has been likened to a contagious disease going 
through a community — an entire country — like the plague. I hold the 
view that the love of money is instinctive and, like other instinctive feel- 
ings, if allowed free play without stint or curb, swiftly flames into passion. 
Here is the reason, I believe, why so many men as soon as they become rich 
rush into the wildest excesses. Experimenting, it would seem, with every 
passion on the calendar. Tearing across the country in high powered 
motor cars or special trains. Flinging their money about like grain in a 
hen-yard. Building freak palaces. Betting on the races. Establishing 
branch homes — wines, diamonds, divorces! 



14 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

When a man yields to any one of the passions he loses his self control. 
He becomes the easy prey of all passions. But because some men are 
gluttons it does not follow that eating is wrong. The crime is not in the 
instinct, but in the excess. It is true of the love of woman. It is true 
of the love of dollars. The law has decreed that one wife is enough for 
one man. The limit has not yet been placed on the number of dollars. 
But it is within the possibilities. Meantime, the instinct which drives all 
of us after money is good. We ought to have some money ahead. To 
paraphrase David Harum, a reasonable amount of money is good for a 
man. Booker T. Washington tells a story of a gentleman who wished 
to cross the ferry over one of the Southern rivers. Arriving at the 
ferry house he discovered he had forgotten his purse. The ferry was 
in charge of one of the old-time darkies. '*j9kCf" said the gentleman, 
"lend me three cents, will you, to get across the river? I have forgotten 
my purse." "H'aint you got no money, boss ?" "Not a cent." "Well, I 
doan' len' no money to no man what h'aint got no money. 'Sides, if you 
h'aint got no money you's just as well off on one side de ribber as 
fodder." 

As society is at present organized, the very first and imperative 
necessity a man fetches up against is the necessity to make money. He 
must have money if he would eat. Later, society and nature demand 
that he should have a home. He must provide some way, somehow, a 
regular salary or income for the growing needs of a growing family. 
He has no option. The MUST is as big as disgrace on one side and 
death on the other. Manifestly, then, the man who follows his instinct 
for getting nwney with which to provide the needs for himself anl 
family — getting it honestly — that man is worthy. 

I cannot reasonably hope for entire sympathy from an audience 
of undergraduates while discussing this theme. Just now you are 
making ideals. God bless and reward the noble men, the pro- 
fessors and instructors, who are helping the youth of the land 
to find their souls and fix them in the way of splendid ideals. The 
time is coming when you will need them all. The time for which 
I am trying to better prepare you. Some of you whose parents 
are making sacrifices to keep you here, already have a hint of what is 
ahead of you. Those of you who are working your way through college 
have more than a hint. You have felt the kick of necessity. Most 
fortunate you, because you are training your ideal to live and grow out of 
the hard realities of life. That is why so many men who work their way 
through college become great in the after years. I charge you all : cherish 
your ideals, forsake not your vision I 

A stanza from Wordsworth's Ode to Immortality sums up the lives of 
all too many mortals : 



MONEY AND THE MAN 15 

"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting ; 
The soul that rises with us, our life's Star, 

Hath had elsewhere its setting, 
And oometh froni afar; 

Not in entire forgetfulness, 

And not in utter nakedness, 
But trailing clouds of glory do we come 

From God who is our home : 
Heaven lies about us in our infancy I 
Shades of the prison house begin to dose 

Upon the growing boy, 
But he beholds the light and whence it flows 

He sees it in his joy; 
The Youth who daily farther from the East 
Must travel, still is Natures' priest. 

And by the vision splendid 

Is on his way attended ; 
At length the man perceives it die away, 
And fade into the light of conmion day/' 

It is just at this point, my friends, where man's vision 'Tades into 
the light of common day," that he becomes a debit balance on life's ledger. 
It is the point where money becomes the end rather than the means. 
The point where worthy instinct sinks into unworthy passion. Rarely 
is man bom with the passion. I have known a few unhappy ones marked 
prenatally. The normal boy is a good fellow. Boyville is a pure democ- 
racy ; so is a good college. Here manhood not money measures the rank. 
Indeed, it often happens that money is a handicap. Now when a boy 
comes out from Boyville or college into the business of life, he brings 
with him his democracy and his vision. To his work-fellows, he proposes 
to be cordial, helpful, square. To humanity, he means to devote the 
fruits of his efforts. That he will devote any large portion of his time 
to the sordid toil of money-making has no place in his thought. 

"Full soon thy Soul shall have her earthly freight. 

And custom lie upon thee with a weight. 
Heavy as frost and deep almost as life." 

O! The bitterness of the awakening. The vision that can live 
through it must have its roots in God. You step out into the world full 
of ^Icndid purpose and high resolve. An altruist. To your chagrin, 
you discover that the world has no time for you, no need for your ideals, 
no noble place for you. The wheel stops just long enough for you to 
get the tips of your fingers on a six dollar job and then swings on. Your 
fellow workers care little for your cordiality and not at all for your help-

i6 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

fulness. You find that you are the one needing help. But there is none. 
Every fellow looks out for himself, is the rule. There is no pity, no 
escape. You are in the inexorable grind and if you would not be ground 
you must g^nd. You learn that your employer is not paying you wha; 
you are worth and that your fellows are trying to get your job. Ever>'- 
where you look, you see the men who have made money riding on the 
necks of the less fortunate. From being an altruist you become a pessimist 

In this state of mind, the rich with their luxuries, their carriages, 
boxes at the opera, leisure for travel and recreation, fine clothes and fine 
houses, and patronizing manners, inflame you. You rail at society and 
storm at riches. 

Again, you discover that the world is not listening to you. Again, 
you discover that each fellow is looking out for himself and while you 
have been "hollering" the quiet man has passed you and the world moves 
on. You think it over with the result that from a pessimist you become 
an egoist. Some men pass immediately from altruism to egoism, but 
I am persuaded that the man with the real ideals must go through the 
black abyss. As an egoist you settle down to your trade. You waste no 
more time worrying about the other fellow. Let him look out for him- 
self. When you are struck, you strike back and the blow you get doesn't 
hurt half so badly. Whatever fails to help your cause along you discard. 
Things begin to come your way. You begin to make good money. You 
have more than enough for your needs. The world looks brighter. You 
are at the parting of the ways where Fate's red lantern swings. One is 
the world's way, the other way is the soul's way. If your ideals have 
lived they will swing your choice to the right road. The hour of 
your vision has struck. The world will listen to you now. Your fellows 
will come to you for help and encouragement. Your community will kx>k 
to you for leadership. A thousand opportunities will find you ready ti 
help humanity. Not the kind of help which robs the recipient of self 
respect. Rather the kind that gives him a chance to help himself. I 
have no quarrel with the moneyed man whose money does no harm to 
others or himself. There is no more splendid thing in all the world than 
the man who has the nerve and skill and perseverance to make a fortune 
honestly and who remembers in his affluence that he is the steward of the 
Most High. There is no sweeter joy than the joy of being able to help 
humanity. Your rich man must come out of egoism through optimism, 
back to the altruism with which he started if he would save his own soul. 

We feel almost contempt for the poor devil who grinds through life 
with nothing better than the hope that some day he will make a fortune, 
so that he may have as big a house as somebody else, and better horses 
or an automobile. Vanity and vexation. The child reaching for the fire. 
But there is a certain pathos in the figure of the man of brilliant parts 
coming down to his last days, seemingly enjoying the plaudits of his 



MONEY AND THE MAN 17 

compeers, but inwardly consumed with anguished regret for the neglected 
opportunities. Each day he has promised himself that tomorrow, after- 
while, he will forsake the scramble for money, afterwhile he will go after 
the things really worth living for, afterwhile he will begin to think of 
others and do for others. 

Afterwhile — and one intends 
To be gentler to his friends — 
To walk with them, in the hush 
Of still evenings o'er the plush 
Of home leading fields, and stand 
Long at parting, hand in hand; 
One, in time, will joy to take 
New resolves for someone's sake, 
And wear then the look that lies 
Qear and pure in other eyes — 
He will soothe and reconcile 
His own conscience — afterwhile. 

Now I approach my summing up. And I find that the relations o^ 
roan to money should be as his relations to most other things of life. He 
should avoid extremes. To the proverb, "A fool and his money are soon 
parted,'* I retort "A fool and his money are late parted." The most harm 
that comes from much money is to the man himself. Anybody can stand 
adversity ; it's good for us. It takes a giant to stand proi^rity and only 
giants should strive for it. I have no quarrel with the man who is making 
money honestly. I fear for him and for his home and for his children. 
Too often a rich man expects money to do for his children what only 
hardship and love can do. In no other life is there so much danger to 
the man himself as in the business life. The physician may sacrifice 
everything to his profession, but he is partly redeemed in that his life is 
spent for his fellows. And so in a sense with the lawyer and the artist and 
the teacher. The business man is in business for money. At first for 
what money will buy and then, alas, too often for money itself. The 
ideals of men in the professions have a better chance to live because 
there is something in their work to keep ideals alive. But in business 
there is little for ideals to feed upon. Little, I mean, in line with the 
humanities. Business is not philanthropy. Business is not altruistic. 
Business is egoistic. Business is selfish. Business is — business. 

And so it happens that your business man knows little of books. 
He has not time to read. Nothing of art — it's a waste of time. The 
music that thrills him is rag-time and the play that inspires him is comic 
opera. They rest him after a hard day's work. In politics, he prefers 
the administration that facilitates business — his business. And he is not 
above paying bribes when they save his time and his money. It is busi- 



i8 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

ness that corrupts legislators. It is business that is making America a 
reproach before the world. It is business that pays rebates. It is business 
that adulterates food. It is business that runs the United States Senate. 
Thank God, it is not business but conscience that runs Theodore Roose- 
velt. Thaiik God, it is not business but humanity which urges Charles 
E. Hughes to plunge his pitiless probe into the insurance scandals. Thank 
God, it is not business but justice which drives William Travers Jerome 
to clutch the business grocer of Newburg in one hand and the business 
bartender of Good Ground in the other and hold them up to the scorn of 
decent men. 

God take away some of our money and give us more such men. 

"God give us men. A time like this demands 
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and willing hands, 
Men whom the lust for ofRce does not kill ; 
Men whom the spoils of ofRce cannot buy ; 
Men who possess opinions and a will ; 
Men who have honor ; men who will not lie ; 
Men who can stand before a demagogue 
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking; 
Tall men sun crowned who live above the fog 
In public duty and private thinking. 
For while the rabble with their thumb worn creeds. 
Their large professions and their little deeds, 
Mingle in selfish strife; lo! freedom weeps; 
Wrong rules the land and waiting justice sleeps." 



ERMAN J. RDX^WAY, Northwestenv '9t 

By Rupert Hughes, Adelbert, '92. 

IT was a bright day in August, and a solitary stork might have been 
seen wending its way slowly across the continent, staggering under the 
weight of an unusually bouncing baby. It was to be an important child, 
and the stork had a worried look choosing to whom to entrust it. 

The bird had a long head as well as a long bill, and finally decided 
that a certain farm near Otsego, Ohio, where Nathan B. Ridg^ay and 
hb wife, Catherine Erman Ridgway, resided, was the ideal place for the 
rearing of his youthful client. 

On August 6, 1867, then, just after the country had had time to 
recover from the Civil War and prepare for another shock, Erman J. 
Ridgway was ushered into an expectant world, whose expectations have 
been since well realized — ^and new expectations raised. 



ERMAN J. RIDGWAY, NORTHWESTERN, '91 19 

G>untry schools at Otsegfo, at Gallion, and Wills Creek, Ohio, gave 
him his earliest education. Thence he went, at the age of sixteen, to the 
Northwestern University Academy, at Evanston, 111., where he was 
{^duated in 1887. Next he entered the University, where he spent 
two years, joining Delta Upsilon to a mutual advantage. He left there 
to go to Yale, where he was graduated with honors and a bachelorship 
of arts in 1892. 

At Yale he won not only academic, but athletic honors as well, and 
'''Ridgway of Yale'' was one of the names which not to know argued 
one's self unknown. 

Leaving Yale, Brother Ridgway became a salesman for the National 
Folding Box and Paper Company, of New York. Two years later he 
was made the general manager and vice-president of Frank A. Munse/s 
numerous enterprises, including the Munsey Magaeine, the Mohican 
Company, the Manhattan Umbrella Company, the New York Daily News, 
BostotJoumal and Washingto Time;:. He remained with Mr. Mun- 
sey from 1894 to 1903, and must be credited with a large part of Mr. 
Munse/s phenomenal success. If any one should doubt this he has only 
to look about and see what phenomenal success Mr. Ridgway has made 
since he stepped out to go it alone. It was in 1903 that he left the Mun- 
sey enterprise and organized the Ridgfway-Thayer Company, becoming 
its president. 

At this time the name of Everybody's Magazine had an ironical 
•effect, though it bore the bewitching emblem of Wanamaker. The two 
young men whom a single idea and a hyphen united have made Every- 
body's a magazine of which even Mr. Boffin could say, ''And well named, 
toor 

To many persons Everybody's means Thomas W. Lawson, but the 
magazine had taken a great leap forward long before the general public 
even showed the first symptoms of Lawsonitis. The circulation man was 
swearing his head off and the safety-valve on the multiplication table 
was already beginning to squeak when the magazine heard of Mr. Lawson 
and offered him its pages as an outlet for the vast volume of indigestion 
against 'Hhe System," which he has since exploded with seismic effect. 

The Lawson exposures have, of course, made Everybody's an enor- 
mous circulation, but so has the magazine made a national figure of one 
who was before a stock-broker who often broke. Furthermore, in that 
remote but inevitable hour when Mr. Lawson has said all he has to say, 
the magazine will remain; new storks will distribute new subscribers 
round the land, and the circulation swearing man will continue to swear. 

When the last of Mr. Lawson's threats is carried out and John D. 
RockefeHer comes asking for a job as office-boy or caddy, when H. H. 
Rogers' Amalgamated Coppers total about thirty cents, and "the System" 
is flat and cold as the buckwheat cakes of yesteryear — still Mr. Ridgway 



20 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

will find new pabulum for the people at popular prices. [Advt. Now is^^ 
Bie time to subscribe.] 

So much for the public career of our Brother Delta U. He i^ 
already a figure of power and dignity in the land, and is not yet forty. 
Those of us who have been privileged to know him personally have not 
wondered as his big success, though we have delighted in k. His quiet, 
and forceful presence shows a strength that could not be kept down. 
His solidity of character and earnestness of ambition have not been- 
denied a liberal sprinkling of the saving salt of humor. He is a brilliant 
after-dinner speaker and can also joke between meals. 

Brother Ridgway was largely instrumental in the formation of The 
Commonwealth Qub, of Upper Montclair, N. J., a suburban town largely 
of New Yoric business men, where Brother Ridgway resides. The club 
was founded to supply a social, literary, and educational feature to 
the suburban life. It met considerable opposition in the indifference of 
its members to take up any sort of community responsibilities. Mr. Ridg- 
way was made chaimran of the entertainment committee, and during thr 
past winter secured the services of many well-known men and women in 
the musical and lecture fields. Appropriate exercises were held on Fourth 
of July, and other holidays, a Junior Qub was organized for the young 
men, with facilities for contests, and many other features were intro- 
duced, all looking toward the "getting together'* of the men, who had 
previously not known what good fellows their neighbors were, and excit- 
ing the interest of the women in the needs of the community. The 
handling of this matter by Brother Ridgway illustrates his tenacity of pur- 
pose and his optimistic regard for all fellow-men. 

He is a member of various clubs, but in the very midmost of his 
struggle with a success that came down on him like a ^ousand of brick, 
he has not been too busy to devote time, thought, and energy to building 
up the Delta Upsilon Gub of New York. Many of us who pray or bray 
very loudly at a banquet cannot find time to do one-tenth as much as 
this busy builder of a great establishment. 

In a dozen ways Erman J. Ridgway is an example to every Amer- 
ican, every college man, and especially every Delta U. man. Big of body, 
of heart, of brain, he has succeeded no more bigly than he has deserved. 



"YELLOIV JOURNAL" METHODS 21 

''YELLOW JOURNAL'* METHODS, 

BROTHER Rupert Hughes, in securing the necessary (mis) information 
for his "write up" of Everybody's Ridgway, has exposed himself to 
several actions for libel, as shown in his letter to his victim, whtch we pub- 
lish below. Not the least of his crimes is the manner in which he insults 
the editor of the Quarterly, calling him "out of his name." Brother 
Hughes says he has just closed a contract with the Century G>mpany 
for the publication of his next novel, with an advance royalty. There^ 
our chance. Brother Ridgway. Let's get after him.

E. Juggernit Ridgway, Esq., 

Southampton, L. I. 

Dear Erman: As the special agent of Fads and Fancies, I wish to 
offer you a biography in it for $1,500. I enclose a letter from the pub- 
lisher, Mr. Goldschmidt. Owing to the newspaper excitement the name 
has been changed to The Delta Upsilon Quarterly. 

Of course, I know a lot of things about you, which, I think, you 
would prefer left unmentioned to your Bible class. I think that m> 
silence on these points is cheap at $1,500. The payment of the sum, 
however, entitles you to have any substitute you wish for the bitter truths 
You are a quinine pill, but if you can pay for a sugar coating, why not? 

Please let me know at once the answers )rou desire to have made to 
the following questions : 

Where were you bom, and when? 

If never bom, please state where you were not bom. 

Why were you bora? 

Why haven't you died yet? 

Is this further proof of Lawson's claim that "the System" is to blame 
for almost everything, including Lawson? 

Where did you get that hat you talk through ? 

Where were you — I was about to say "educated" — ^well, let the word 
stand, why quibble? 

When did you quit leaming college words? 

How did you come to this? — meaning magazining. 

What circulation do you claim? You notice I say "claim." 

Where do you expect to spend eternity, and what board will you pay? 

Goldsmith thinks you are doing the public good, so do I. You are 
doing them well. 

When do you open your branch in Mars ? 

If you'll answer these questions before a notary, I'll put in a few 
facts for variety, and let her simmer, sweeten to taste, and serve with 
a g^n of salt. Yours faithlessly, 

Rupert O'Hughes.

W, T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN. 

'Tp O the counftry-wide acclamation of Brother Jerome for his splendid 
campaign against the bosses that ended in victory, the Quarterly 
can add nothing at this time. Every son of Delta U. must rejoice that 
in the forward movement of civic and political righteousness a member 
of the fraternity is taking such a conspicuous and effective part. 

To chronicle here in complete measure the story of his fight against 
boss rule would be impossible. It must suffice to present a composite 
pen-picfturc of Brother Jerome as others see him — ^in his fearlessness, his 
honesty and his humanity.

WHO IS THIS MAN JEROME? 

New York Letter in the Indianapolis News. 

HO is this man Jerome that is turning New York upside down 
politically? Simply an honest man with a good brain and a pre- 
disposition for industry. He has always been a Democrat, and he tells 
his audiences that he has not laid aside his Democracy in national affairs 
in making this race for district attorney. He is a Democrat of the Qeve- 
land stripe. 

Four years ago he was the fusion nominee for district attorney, and 
we all remember the whirlwind campaign he made on that occasion. 

Coming into office he surrounded himself with competent men, who 
were not connected with the machines of either political party. He set 
about the prosecution of evil doers regardless of whether they were Repub- 
licans or Democrats. Party politics were kicked out of the district attor- 
ney's office. It was the first time it had been so handled for half a century. 

Soon after taking office Jerome moved from a fashionable neigh- 
borhood to one of the worst sections on the East Side, and during his 
term he has lived among the people of the underworld. Thus living, he 
came to know their struggles for existence and temptations that beset 
them. His studies enabled him to deal out even-handed justice as district 
attorney. 

The political machines — Tammany on the one hand and the Odell 
machine on the other — soon learned that they could not run his office. 
The politician who appeared to request the release of a man because he 
had been a "faithful ward worker" was shown the door by Jerome. 

Of course that did not please the professional politicians, and when 
the time approached to make up this year's tickets they conspired to "put 
Jerome out of business." It has been proved that Odell, the head of the 



IV. T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN 23 

Republican machine, and Murphy, the head of the Tammany machine, 
entered into an agreement that neither would "stand for Jerome." 

The fearless public officer saw that he could not hope for support 
from either party and so last fall he told his friends he proposed to run 
as an independent. When it came time to prepare the petition required 

THE ENTHUSIASM IN NEW YORK. 



to secure a place on the ballot for his name citizens came forward by the 
thousands and volunteered the use of thetr names. 

True to their agreement the Democratic and Republican machines 
ignored Jerome when the candidates were nominated, and the politicians 
said among themselves: 



26 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

On another occasion Jerome, ax in hand, fireman-like, was ascending: 
a ladder, when someone below pulled the lower supports in the hope 
that he might break Jerome's neck. Mr. Jerome lost his ax, but, with 
a good hold on the windowsill, he lifted himself so that he could push up- 
the window and crawl in. There was a wild scramble as he entered, 
and no arrests, the police having learned, just in time, that Judge Jerome 
was "doing stunts." 

And so it went on. Jerome sat on the bench of the court of special 
sessions in the morning and raided at night. If it was not a gambling^ 
house he raided it was a place where young girls were held as prisoners. 

Then came the revolt against Tammany, when the independent 
democrats, republicans and Citizens' union came together and named 
a ticket, headed by Seth Ix)w. It went through with a whirl, with 
Jerome for district attorney running far ahead of the ticket. 

An incident in the campaign which will not be forgotten was when» 
in his dare-devil campaign of the city, Jerome arrived at the place in 
Rivington street which he had once raided alone. 

A big fellow took hold of his arm and led him to the door he had 
unce broken down 

"Let me show you the way," said Jerome. 

The big man fell back and followed until he reached the stage. 
There he caught Jerome by the neck and, shoving him aside, said, in a 
voice that could not be misunderstood: 

"Gentlemen — It's my right and privilege to introduce to you toniglit 
the real speaker of this occasion. I used to run a poolroom in this place 

with my brother, as you all know. The night this d Jerome bustedi 

in alone we meant to kill him. I'm d glad we didn't. 

"I've been doing a better business since, beginning with peddlings 
and now have a store of my own. 

"The nerve of this man in coming here tonight is equal to that of 
the night he came here alone. You know that you are gathered here 
to down him. 

"Just a word before he speaks. Brother Jim's dead. Jerome did 
not kill him. Booze did. Jim was drunk one night and the cops had 
him right, as they thought, for stealing. I went to this here fellow Jerome 
and put it up to him. He said Jim mig^t be a gambler, but he was 
no ordinary thief, and he got a friend to go bail. Then he used his col- 
lege-graduate friends to look up the case and they proved Jim innocent. 
I have the honor of introducing 'Bill' Jerome." 

There was a dead silence and then a burst of applause as the candi- 
date faced his former enemies. He spoke very simply, acknowledging 
that he had violently entered the poolroom, and then burst into torrents 
of abuse of the organization of which most of the auditors were adherents. 
He put it up to them whether they wanted a "red light" over the stoops 
of the flats, where they lived with their wives and children. 



"This Job I taave undertaken Is 
really one for a Savonarola, and I am 
only Wiltlam Travers Jerome; still 
I have got to tackle It." 



W. T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN 07 

The prepared hisses changed to cheers, the crowd following the weary 
campaigner to his automobile, insisting on shaking hands with the man 
whom a little while before they would have pummeled with pleasure. 

WHEN HE FACED A SAM PARKS CROWD. 

''Listener" in the Boston Transcript 

^XTlTH all the descriptions that the newspapers have been giving of 
^^ Jerome's marvelous campaign the half has never been told. 

There have been more moments of peril for the whde business, 
personal peril as well as political, than have got into the newspapers. One 
such case was where he was addressing a very rough assemblage, com- 
posed of labor unions gathered together as such. Naturally before fie 
had got far one of the savagest and most insolent of these disturbers who 
had come to the meeting to break it up, put his fist under Jerome's nose 
and demanded him at once to answer one question before those there 
assembled. It was : ''Why did you hound Sam Parks to death V 

A wild yell in accord arose from the audience, but Jerome was 
halted only for an instant. Doubling up his own fi$t in return and stepping: 
forward to hold it in the face of his interlocutor, he told with pathetic 
detail that proved the genuineness and intensity of his sympathy, the 
sufferings of the wife and children of the working man of straightfor- 
ward, industrious life, through the exhatistion of his savings in the con- 
tinual strikes which Parks had decreed. 

"When I learned," shouted Jerome, "that Paries in ordering these 
strikes was doing it mainly from personal spite and for his own pocket 
all the time, if I had met with Parks in the street I could have knocked 

the villain to and snatched his ^black heart out 

of his body." 

Needless to say the crowd went with him from that on, and at the 
end he was carried out to his carriage on the shoulders of the nearest. 

JEROME AS A PUBLIC SPEAKER. 

From the New York Herald. 

THERE is little of the orator about Mr. Jerome. In his sptedbes 
there are no rounded flights, no graceful periods, no rhetorical 
working up to a point. One peculiarity has been remarked by those 
familiar with his methods, and this comes from his mental activity. 
Beginning on one topic, he often says not more than a dozen words, when 
they suggest to him something else. Off at a tangent he will go with a 
parenthetical clause which not infrequently gives him an idea of a further 
digression. Generally he rounds hack to his first thought Sometimes 
be lets it drift away entirely, never to be completed. 



28 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

Somewhat harsh of voice, it might be said that Mr. Jerome's speeches 
are delivered in a monotone. Even so, he never becomes tiresome, nor 
do his auditors become inattentive. He is quick to perceive the feeling of 
an assemblage and certain to take advantage of any incident which will 
go to point his moral or adorn his tale. He prefers to walk slowly about 
the platform as he talks, dragging his feet leisurely ; his watch is always 
before him, that he may not overstep the time limit he has set for himself. 

His sarcasm is one of the most telling of his equipments. His lips 
recede until his white teeth are displayed; his eyes gleam wickedly; his 
words are shot out as the puffs of a locomotive; one hand will move 
out from the shoulder, the fingers outspread, and back and forth he darts 
it, as if driving home every word he utters. It is a treat to hear him dilate 
on C. Francis Murphy, as he terms the Tammany leader, on his Good 
Ground, his liveried chauffeur and his automobiles, and his sallies about 
J. Sergeant Cram and his Tuxedo coat always draw a shout of derisive 
laughter, as does his reference to "that grocery man of Newburg." 

With a keen appreciation of the humorous side of things, he will 
switch suddenly from the most serious phase of his discourse to run upon 
a sidetrack of fun. He can tell a story well, and always delights his 
audiences when he is in such a mood. Of his pathos, those who heard 
him in the campaign of four years ago and who wept and sobbed at his 
recitals, need not to be told. Of an emotional temperament himself and 
with a sensitiveness he endeavors to mask, his feelings at times almost 
overcome him, and then there is a suspicious use of his handkerchief. 

But he is seen and heard at his best when he appears before an audi- 
ence which he knows is antagonistic to him. Then it is that the fighting 
side of his make-up is disclosed, as well as the further fact that he glories 
in a rough and tumble, man to man argument. If he is permitted to defiite 
his position he will do so, and then he will ask his hearers to question 
him on any point on whidi they are not satisfied. 

"Put it up to me ; put it up to me hard," he will beg, and when the 
questions come thick and fast he is in his element And his personality 
and his manliness usually triumph and those who came to scoff remain 
to admire and applaud. 

STRONGEST CHARACTER IN NEW YORK CITY- 

Fred B. Warren in the Pittsburg Dispatch. 

GIVEN a capable lawyer of tremendous earnestness, a man 46 years 
old, well bom, well trained, who has had an active life among men 
— ^a man fond of sports, of good physique, built up by exercise — z, man of 
clean life, of high social position and of democratic habits and thought 
— this is already a catalogue of most of the virtues and kinds of good 
fortune that an American citizen need have. Add to these courage 



W. T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN 99 

without taint of fear, and you have William Travers Jerome, by all odds 
the strongest character and the most noteworthy personality in the public 
life of New York. 

Jerome's achievements cannot be easily tabulated ; for the noteworthy 
thing is the kind of service that he has done, rather than the volume of 
it that shows in the tables of convictions. The thing that tells is the 
quality of the man. 

He has so done his work that the District Attorney's office is the one 
public place in New York where everybody knows that a man works for 
the city's uplifting who has no favor and no fear. 

STRIKING INCIDENTS OF HIS CAMPAIGN* 

"Where's that man Jerome?" inquired in a fog-horn voice a big man, 
plainly a Westerner, as he strode into the Gilsey House headquarters. He 
was t61d by one of the secretaries that Mr. Jerome would not be there 
until late in the afternoon. 

"I'm sorry," continued he of the stentorian voice. "I'd like to meet 
him. You people down here talk about electing him district attorney. 
Huh ! Why out west we are going to make him president." 



During one of his whirlwind dashes through the East Side Mr. 
Jerome passed the rooms of a club which was known to exist only to 
sell pools. The sound of cheers brought the members to the windows. As 
the candidate went by, a man on the sidewalk looked up at his fellows 
in the windows and shouted : 

"Boys, he's against us, but he's square. Three cheers for Jerome I" 
The answering yell from the club-rooms left no doubt as to their 
sentiments of admiration. 



One of the most remarkable features of Mr. Jerome's canvass was the 
intense interest manifested in every section of the country. Htmdreds 
of letters poured in upon the Jerome committee and hundreds more con- 
tained substantial tokens of their sympathy. 

Many pathetic stories could be told of the sacrifices made by poor 
people of New York to help swell the Jerome campaign fund. A man 
went into the Gilsey House and offered a contribution of fifty cents. The 
treasurer, glancing up, saw the giver wore ragged clothing and was evi- 
dently in need. He gently urged the man that he ought not to give the 
money, but tlie man insisted, adding as a clincher : : "It's such as me he's 
workUig for." 



ao THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

A poorly-dresded woman with the unmistakable signs of hard work 
and many trouUes cailed at the New York Sun office and with an apdogy 
for the smallness of the amount asked that she be allowed to contribute 25 
cents to the Jerome campaign fund. She is the mother of five children 
and takes in washing for a living. 

"I want to see Mr Jerome elected," she explained, '1)ecause he is 

good to every mother who's in trouble. Two of my boys used to be bad. 

One of Aem got mixed up with a gang and he was going in a bad way. 

Mr. Jerome didn't send him to the reform school. He just had a talk 

with that boy and he sent somebody to talk with his teacher and me» 

and I haven't got any complaint to make against my boys now. They 

ain't so awful good, but they're honest. And that's what Mr. Jerome is. 

God bless him." 

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ 

Pictures of Mr. Jerome were tacked up in almost every tenement and 
store and restaurant on the East side by women workers. In the Home 
Fire Insurance Company Restaurant, pictures of every mayoralty candi- 
date were put up every morning and torn down before noon. Mr. Jerome's 
picture remained and beneath it in a crude, untutored hand was written: 

''One man on the square — the rest are on the bum." 



A woman's hand wrote these words in an unsigned letter to the candi- 
date: 

"Honest WilKam Trovers Jerome: 

"It is only a five dollar bill, but two honest votes go with it— those 
of my husband and of my oldest son and the promise of one other is 
assured to yoti. My other son, 19 years old, will be ready to cast his 
first vote for you as Governor of New York or as President of our noble 

land." 

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ 

At one of the Jerome meetings a McQellan enthusiast was speaking. 
He said he tiiougfat that *']^Yomt is as sure of election as George 
McQellan." 

There was an instant uproar. Somebody obtruded a proposition that 
it was time for "three cheers for William Randolph Hearst I" 

About two-fifths of the audience adopted the suggestion. 

"Three cheers for George McQellan I" shouted a man in the gallery. 
There were three big McQellan cheers. Then came a shrill shout: 

"What's the matter with Ivins?" 

A considerable part of the audience responded with a roar of approv- 
ing sentiment 



W. T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN 31 

John P. Leo, the chairman, ^rang to the front of the platfonn and 
shouted : 

"Gentlemen, gentlemen t This is unseemly. We are all for JenMne 
anyhow." 



"ON THEIR NECKS" 

"Three cheers for Jerome," shouted one man, and the whole crowd, 
McOellan men, Hearst men and Ivins men, rose and shouted and ripped 
flags from the side walls and cheered and cheered again. 

NEWSPAPER OPINION OF JEROME VICT^IY. 
RSVBLUJLN. 
The crowning and most splendid achievement has been the election of 
William Travers Jerome. It was the greatest moral victory of electi<» 
day in this country and its value is immeasurable. — Boston Trantcript, 



32 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

Mr. Jerome became to this community the symbol of fearless and 
upright performance of public duty, and his election is not merely a great 
tribute to him and a victory for good government, but a tonic vindication 
to the people themselves of their own moral impulses and their capacity 
for self-government. — New York Tribune. 

We congratulate the community upon the outcome. New York wiH 
be a better town for it. The whole country will be better for it. Never 
before did a brilliant and distinguished public servant crush so brutal and 
ruthless a conspiracy as that which sought to destroy William Travers 
Jerome. — New York Sun. 

Jerome is not a political puppet; he is a giant of strength, as was 
shown in a fight that probably no other man in New York would have 
had the audacity to make. Jerome today is a national figure of formidable 
dimensions to such Presidential aspinants as Folk, Johnson, LaFollette 
and Bryan. The outcome of this campaign will be g^tifying to ever}' 
lover of justice and decency in America. It is a triumph for clean politics 
and an assertion of the power of the people to return to themselves the 
control of government. It will stimulate the spirit of reform ever3rwhere. 
It makes Jerome the man of the hour. — Kansas City Journal. 

This is one of the gratifying triumphs of true citizenship fairh 
aroused in a righteous cause. — Philadelphia Evening Telegraph. 

The election of Mr. Jerome is certainly the most significant declara- 
tion of political independence made in recent years. — Providence Journal. 

Far and away the best single result of yesterday's voting — for the 
cheer and inspiration in it — is the re-election of District Attorney Jerome. 
His re-election is a thing to thank God for. Every sordid political boss 
between the two oceans holds by a more precarious tenure because of him, 
and American citizenship has risen in every market. — Hartford Courant. 

His splendid and magnificent defiance of boss rule is morally justified. 
It has been over all the country a rousing encouragement to civic inde- 
pendence and civic righteousness. — Philadelphia Press. 

By common consent District Attorney Jerome's candidacy repre- 
sented mo^ vitally and dramatically the anti-bossism issue of the off- 
year elections. His victory is a magnificent one, in view of the heavy 
odds against him, of the conspiracy of the "regular" machines. — Chicago 
Record-Herald. 

DEMOCRATIC 

It was a great victory for a free people and an independent press. 
It will hearten everywhere those who are defending against the brutal 
bosses the principle of American democracy. — New York World. 



W. T. JEROME AND HIS CAMPAIGN 33 

Many a man on Tuesday beat a boss of one party, but it remained for 
William Travers Jerome to beat all the bosses of all parties. — Cleveland 
Plaindealer. 

The election of Mr Jerome is a great personal triumph and will meet 
with universal approval throughout the country. — Boston Globe. 

As the player of a lone hand Jerome has no peer. — Charleston News 
and Courier. 

Jerome's riding down of two powerful old-line organizations is at 
once the most sensational and most convincing demonstration of the 
inherent capacity of the people to manage their own political concerns; 
and is a matter of congratulation to good citizenship ever3rwhere. — St. 
Louis Republic. 

He had no alliances except his own honesty against the organization 
of his opponents ; he held forth his courage to counteract the influence 
of those who hated him and feared unhampered justice; he t3rpified the 
predictions of the people ; he touched the core of popular honesty. — Detroit 
Free Press. 

INDEPENDENT. 

There can be no mistaking the absorbed interest with which his cam- 
paign has been followed in every village of the land, nor the chorus of 
delight and gratitude which is going up from millions as they read of his 
immense success. He has lighted a fire which will not go out until in its 
flames boss after boss has shrivelled and been consumed. — New York 
Evening Post. 

Without the election of Jerome, the satisfaction of honest men and 
good Americans in the results of yesterday's election would have been 
incomplete. No other rebuke to bosses and corruption, no other victor>- 
for honesty and independence, would have compensated for the disappoint- 
ment of the high hopes which had been raised during the enthusiastic 
campaign for New York's fearless District Attorney. — Baltimore, News. 

Here at least is one man in office who will owe nothing to any party 
or boss, who is absolutely free to be the best public servant possible. 
His campaign has been an inspiration, and his victory is an assurance that 
the people can win over bosses whenever they really want to do so. — 
Indianapolis News. 

The election of Jerome is a splendid triumph, not only for this fearless 
and able public prosecutor, but for the civic virtue and independence of the 
voters of New York. — Boston Herald. 

Mr. Jerome's victory in New York is in some respects the most 
notable event of the elections and one of the greatest benefits yet conferred 
upon the cause of good municipal government. — Chicago Daily Ne;u;s. 



EDITORIAL. 

The Hamilton Qiapter has added greatly to its 

^^rraN\SmON ''^P^*^^^" ^y ^^^ successful handling of the recent 

convention, following, as it did the great gatherings 
at Qiicago and New York city, where the alumni clubs which conducted 
the convention set a standard that promised difficulties for those who 
followed them. But no one thought of making any comparisons, and it 
would not have mattered if they had. The Hamilton Convention was not 
overshadowed by recollections of New York and Chicago. 

Several features distinguished the seventy-first annual convention and 
convinced many that a large city is not the best place for a convention. 
The delegates "got together" more than usual and there seemed to be 
more opportunity for making acquaintances. At the smoker the men cir- 
culated freely and began the pleasant task of forming friendships. The 
business of the convention went through briskly because the men knew 
what was coming and were ready for it. At the theatre the musical 
comedy thoroughly pleased the delegates and apparently the delegates 
pleased the rest of the audience with their singing as there^ were calls for 
"more." The trolley trip and the literary exercises were both successful. 
The history was unusually interesting and the oration was exceptionally 
fine. The banquet, with its attendance of nearly 200 and its splendid list 
of speakers, brought to a close a convention that well earned for the Ham- 
ilton Chapter the resoltrtions of appreciation passed at the close of the 
banquet. 

One of the most interesting features of the con- 

THTOTV^EVKN vention was the reception of the petition from the 

KK Oub of the University of Illinois. The quiet 
but stirring presentation of their application by Mr. Edward Corrigan 
made a deep impression on the delegates. The result of the vote on the 
motion to grant a charter brought out an inspiring storm of applause 
which was renewed when the members of the KK Qub were brought 
back to receive from Brother Thomas the information that their three years 
of hard work had borne fruit. The KK Qub has gained the prestige of 
membership in a national fraternity and Delta Upsilon has gained a strong 
and enthusiastic chapter. 

PROSPERITY Prosperity is written large and fair on the statistics 

ATTOTlfflnmjRB ^* ^^^^ Upsilon chapter membership which were

Not that large membership, per se, is everything or even a very great deal 



EDITORIAL 35 

to a chapter, but as a sign it has its undoubted value just as membership 
T)ek)w the average is often warning of danger. 

But amid evident prosperity is it not worth while to ask, not pessim- 
istically but philosophically, how much of it is due to force outside of the 
fraternity — the general prosperity of the country, the increasing tendency 
toward college education? To any chapter that feels it owes its present 
prosperity mainly to such extraneous factors this should be said : Make 
these days of calm, days of strengthening. Deepen and broaden under- 
graduate life. Cultivate the alumni. Resolve that the chapter shall live 
as long as the institution of which it is a loyal part. Then when the storm 
comes and college classes decline, as they must in time of financial depres- 
sion, there will be no hard times for any chapter of Delta Upsilon. 

A year ago the editor wrote to one of the Rhodes 

ATO^TOWRD Scholars suggesting an alimmi club at Oxford for 

the purpose of forming a bond between the Delta 
U. Rhodes scholars. Fearing that such an organization would tend to 
defeat one of the objects of the scholarships, it was decided at the time 
that an alumni club would be undesirable. A year's experience, however, 
lias shown that this fear was not well founded and that a club with infre- 
quent meetings will not lead to the segregation of the Americans or 
prevent them from entering fully into the English University life. ITie 
Oxford University Delta Upsilon club has, therefore, been formed, and 
the report of its organization will be found in the Alumni Qub depart- 
ment. We need have no fear that this will lead to an attempt to form 
an undergraduate chapter at Oxford, which, as the secretary says, would 
be as undersirable as it would be impossible. 

The convention photograph was taken by Carl 
glgij^^^ K. Frey, of ii Broad street, Utica, N. Y. It is 

an excellent group picture, the faces being very dis- 
tinct. Copies can be had from him at the following prices : 8 in. x 14 in., 
75 cents ; 10 in. x 20 in., $1.25 ; 12 in. x 22 in., $1.75. A framed collection 
of convention groups makes an interesting historical record of the fra- 
temitv. 

The chapters are expected, as their senior delegates 
^^^^™™^ were informed at convention, to appoint a man to 

take charge of increasing the list of subscribers to 
the Quarterly among their alumni. His name was to be sent to Brother 
A. D. Wedierell, Middlebury, '05, who planned and is conducting the 
campaign. Has your chapter done its duty in the matter? When yctt 
read this it will be about six wedcs after the convention. What chapters 



36 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

have failed in this regard ? None, we hope. A full report of the results- 
will be published at the close of the campaign. 

The amendment providing for graduate subscrip- 
^^^J^^ tions to the Quarterly was passed. It was not 

expected by tfie editor, who hoped to provoke dis- 
cussion, but little more. Only one good point was brought up against it, 
however, and even that may be overcome by proper explanation. An 
open consideration of this or any other fraternity matter is proposed for 
our new department, "Open Correspondence" (for which, by the way, a 
better title is solicited.) 

A few subjects suggested by the points brought up at convention 
and by the chapter letters in this issue are: Is it safe or allowable to 
pledge men before they enter college? If a chapter starts the year strong, 
is it safe to "take your own time in selecting new men?" Shall Founder's. 
Day be celebrated on the same date by all chapters? Shall there be a 
uniform position for wearing the pin? These and other questions may 
well be discussed openly and so save the time at convention. Are yoit 
interested? 

The corresponding secretaries have been exceedingly lax*. This issue 
would have gone to press with about one-third of the names incorrect 
if Brother Fairbanks had not sent the editor a list he had compiled fram 
recent correspondence with the chapters. The Directory is of little use 
if it is incorrect and its accuracy dq)ends on the corresponding secre- 
taries. The editor approves of the idea of having one man fill the offices 
of both corresponding secretary and chapter editor. 

While at convention Brother Frederick M. Crossett, Ne^uf York, '84, 
presented the Hamilton chapter with a plaque bearing a New York Uni- 
versity seal, in commemoration of his having attended twenty-five con- 
secutive conventions. 

A word of warning. In any chapter having a senior delegation the 
seniors must see that they do not let the chapter become greatly weakened 
by their graduation. Have you missed a good man in the jimior or soplio- 
more class? A small junior delegation this year will mean a weak chapter 
next vear. 

The discussion of the official design should show the chapters that 
it is wise to deal only with the jewelers advertising in the Quarterly. 
There is an official shape and that only should be purchased.

THE ALUMNI CLUBS- 

OXFORD UNIVERSITY DELTA UPSILON CLUB. 

To the Editor of the Delta Upsilon Quarterly: 

I take no moderate pleasure in announcing the existence of an "Ox- 
ford University Deha Upsilon Club." You will remember that one year 
ago the Delta U's in Oxford discussed the advisability of organization* 
The men then stood together against it, for reasons of which you are 
aware. The year's experience of the first Delta Upsilon Rhodes contin- 
gent, however, has led them to believe (and the seven new men who have 
come up this year have fallen in with this view) that by forming a loose or- 
ganization, the Delta U's in Oxford will not be withdrawing themselves 
from the University life, and yet will secure to the home chapters the ad- 
vantage which they deserve for the splendid record they have made in 
capturing Rhodes Scholarships. 

Accordingly a meeting was called October 24, in the rooms of 
Brother Schutt at Brasenose, to which all Delta U's at Oxford were 
invited. Brother Schutt was elected President and R. H. Bevan Cor- 
responding Secretary. The idea was to meet once a year for a dinner,, 
and once a term in the rooms of the various members at the different 
colleges to transact any necessary business. 

I must apologize for this very brief and hurried report but the Ameri-

THE ALUMNI CLUBS 39 

CHESAPEAKE DELTA UPSILON CLUB. 

On September 12th, known as "Old Defenders' Day," a legal holi- 
day in Maryland, as it is the anniversary of the battle of North Point 
when the British stormed Baltimore and were repulsed, the Chesapeake 
Delta Upsilon Qub enjoyed an outing on Chesapeake Bay. Through 
the kindness of one of our members, a launch was set at the disposal of 
the Qub. Although in the summer time many of the feltows are out of 
the city, about a dozen gathered for this excursion. We ran from Balti- 
more to "Thompsons' Sea Girt House," a place with a reputation among 
local epicures, and their standard "Southern Supper" of soft-shelled crabs 
and fried chicken tasted "good to us." 

We then went to River View Park — sort of a small Coney — and 
amused ourselves and other people greatly. I guess they — ^thc other 
people — ^had never seen a bunch of Delta U's enjoy themselves before. 
All hands threw base-balls at the babies, ringed canes, rode <m the switch- 
back, and nearly broke up The Old Mill by a race in two of the boats 
at dose quarters. Jokes and fun were the order of things throughout 
One fellow lingered to try his avoirdupois at a penny-in-the-slot machine, 
and could not understand his seeming overweight, till the solution was 
offered that he might have "a weight on his mind." A spin in the moon- 
light brought us home again. 

Did you ever see a Sunday School picnic, or go on one? Of course 
you have. Well, our outing wasn't anything like that ! 

MILWAUKEE DELTA UPSOX^N CLUB. 

On September 19, 1905, the Milwaukee Delta Upsilon Qub held its 
annual fall banquet at the Republicaf^ House, Milwaukee, Wis. 

When President Haring led the way to the banquet hall twenty-one 
Delta Upsilon braves foltowed him. In attendance, spirit and enthusiasm 
this gathering eclipsed any previous one. 

Brother Arthur Klet2sch, one of the joint owners of the Republican 
House, had prepared an excellent menu which won for him words of 
praise and approval. 

Informal speeches, college songs and yells eiriivened the evening. The 
speeches were followed by a general discussion of the needs of the fra- 
ternity and bow to best advance its interests. 

Those present were : 
Columbia: Arthur C. Kletzsch, '93. 
Middlebury: Richard O. Wooster, '95. 
Technology: Edwin C. Cramer, '96. 
Rutgers: Cornelius I. Haring, '81. 

Wisconsin: Judge Warren D. Tarrant, '90; Prof. Willard Bleyer, '96; 
Ray Willetts, '98; Geo. B. Vinson, '02; Waldemar Kremer, '02;

BOOK REVIEW- 

ZAL: An International Romance. By Rupert Hughes, Adelbrt, '92. 
The Century Co., New York, N. Y. ; PP346; price $1.50. 

The meaning of the title of Rupert Hughes' new novel is practically 
hopeless sorrow and longing, a homesickness that cannot be cured because 
the home is gone, a living despair for freedom such is in every patriotic 
Polid^j heart. But despite the gloomy prognostications of such a title the 
hero achieves success and wins the millionaire's daughter with whom he 
falls in love thinking she is poor. Between them they surmount many 
obstacles, undergo many tragic experiences and struggle against the appar- 
ent opposition of fate, their romance finally ending happily as all romances 
should.

DEATHS* 

COLUMBIA, '89 — "Members of the 
Regiment were shocked to hear of 
the sudden death from heart dis- 
ease on August 28, of 1st Sgt. Hen- 
ry Brown Turner, of Co. P. The 
funeral servic s were held at hla 
home Wednesday evening, August 
30. A remarkably sad coincidence, 
is that the hour set for Sgt. Tur-^ 
ner's funeral was the time ap- 
pointed by Co. P for an election for 
2d Lieutenant, for which office the- 
deceased was the unanimous selec- 
tion of the company. 

"Sgt. Turner was bom March la^ 
1868, in New York city. His 
father was the late Henry B. Tur- 
ner, formerly Captain of Co. F, 
who was succeed''d by his son and 
namesake. Sgt. Turner enlisted in 
Co. F in 1891, was appointed a cor- 
poral in 1893, sergeant in 1896» 
and first sergeant in 1899. He had 
two brothers who formerly be 
longed to Ccf. F, one of whom is 
Lt. Frederic G. Turner, 6 th Cav-

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



Gillespie, of Port Deposit, and Mr. 
and Mrs. Peale had only jusi 
reached Lien-chow, having sailed 
from this country last August. 

Just before his departure Bro. 
Peale wrote the editor asking that 
his "Quarterly" be sent to his new 
address in China. The day before 
the news of his death appeared in 
the newspapers the editor received 
a postal from Bro. Frank Ecker- 
son at Amoy, China, asking that 
Bro. Peale's name be added to the 
list of Delta U's abroad published 
occasionally in the "Quarterly." 

The Emperor of China has order- 
ed the viceroy of Canton to inflict 
exemplary punishment upon the 
perpetrators of the crime and all 
guilty officers, and directed that 
compensation be made and ade- 
quate protection afforded for all 
missions. 

MICHIGAN, '84 — Henry W. Halsey 
died in Berkeley, Cal., on Septem- 
ber 21, 1905. He was a newspaper 
publisher and manager, who had 
been connected with the Minneapo- 
lis Northwestern Miller, the Den- 
ver Sun, the Chicago Record-Her- 
ald and the San Francisco Exam- 
iner. 

The will of the late Harry W. 
Hawley has been filed for probate. 
Among other provisions is a be 
.quest of 110,000 for the founding 
of one or more scholarships to be 
known as the "H. W. Hawley 
-Scholarship of the Fort Dodge 
High school." The bequest is fot 
the purpose of aiding worthy grad- 
uates of this school to obtain a col- 
legiate education, and only the In- 
'Come of the fund to be used for this 
purpose. 

Mr. Hawley was a student in the 
public school during his youth in Ft. 
Dodge. For nine years prior to his 
death in Berkeley, Cal, he was 
unable to move hand or foot. His 
long sickness diminished his estate 
: and caused him to rewrite his will 
just priqr to his death, but his mis- 
fortune in no way abated his love 
for his childhood home, and when 
his will was filed for probate it con- 
tained the provisions for the Fort 
Dodge High school as originally 
', -written. 



A condition of the bequest is in 
the following language: "Should 
any one chosen as a beneficiary be- 
come, in the opinion of said direc- 
tors, unworthy of such aid, said 
board shall discontinue such aid. I 
am moved to make this bequest la 
recognition of the good already ac- 
complished by said school, and 
hope It may be the means of F>tim- 
ulating many of the graduates 
therefrom in years to come, to 
strive for a noble manhood and 
womanhood and high plane of 
moral and Intellectual life."

LETTERS AND NEWS ITEMS* 

The alumni news, which has heretofore been a separate department, 
will be classified with the chapter letters. Chapter editors and alumni 
correspondents are requested to send news regularly for each issue. For 
several years the bulk of the news has been contributed by Brothers F. M. 
Crossett, Albert Warren Ferris, Wilson L. Fairbanks, R. J. Bidlitz, several 
of the alumni correspondents and a few of the chapter editors. It is 
expected that the new arrangement will prove an inducement to chapter 
editors and alumni correspondents to collect and forward the news of their 
chapter.

from Marietta and Ohio State came 
to CleTeland and we enjoyed a very 
pleasant day, to say the least. In wel- 
coming our down-state brothers. 

On October 19th the chapter held 
its annual initiation and banquet, 
and five men whom the chapter 
thinks worthy of membership and 
whom we think will become loyal and 
enthusiastic Delta U's were elected 
to membership. After the rites were 
over the company sat down to a 
sumptuous feast which gratified the 
tastes of the most exacting. 

Football is the all-absorbing topic 
of conversation now, for the varsity 
is out for State championship honors 
and bids well to acquire them, for 
her opponents have been unable to 
cross her goal line so far. Wynne, 
a giant freshman, is playing on the 
team, and we expect him to uphold 
Delta U's football record this fall. 

Adelbert's two delegates to the 
convention have returned and have 
nothing but praise for the way in 
which they were received. They re- 
port a very fine time at the conven- 
tion, and their report had a very 
stimulating effect upon all the active 
members.

College began September 21st with 
all indications pointing towards a 
most prosperous year. There are 160 
men in the entering class, about 30 
more than usual, bringing the total 
enrolment up to about 450, the larg- 
est it has been for many years. 

Two radical changes have been 
made at Amherst this year. The 
honor system in examinations has 
been introduced and the competitive 
system in electing managers is being 
given a trial. This latter is primarily 
intended to do away with fraternity 
deals and to put the best man in 
office after he has proven his ability. 

College Hall has been completly 
rebuilt through the generosity of the 
class of '84, and now is one of the 
most imposing buildings on the 
Campus. Work on the new Nata- 
torium is progressing rapidly, and 
the building is expected to be finished 
by March, 1906. 

The chapter house has been reno- 
vated during the past summer and 
several of the rooms newly papered. 
We also are enjoying a new smoking 
room his year. 

Brother Haller, '08, is with us this 
year. He was at Columbia last year. 
We have enjoyed visits from Bros. 
Copping, Williams, '05; Greene, Bow- 
doin, '05, and Bamum, Middlebury, 
'05, this fall. 

But two men failed to return this 
year — Seaman, '07, who is in New 
York Law School, and Waite, '08, who 
is in business this year. Lewis, ex- 
'05, is with us again in the Senior 
class after a year of teaching in Cin- 
cinnati. 

Quite a number of honors have 
fallen to the lot of old Delta U since 
last year. Bridgman, '06, is track 
manager of Scarab, the senior so- 
ciety, a member of the Cotillion club, 
on the Glee club and at the Senior 



so

elections recently was elected proph- 
et-on-prophet. Carter, *06, Is man- 
ager of the "Amherst Literary 
Monthly/' and last spring took one 
of the Ladd prizes In Puhlic Speak- 
ing. Howe, '06, is on the Glee club 
and chairman of the College Dramat- 
ics committee. Glasgow, '06, and 
Hall, '06, were elected to the Phi 
Beta Kappa on the first drawing last 
spring. Hall is also ivy orator and 
manager of the college dramatics for 
the year. Lewis, '06, is fullback on 
the Varsity football team and also a 
member of Scarab. Pethybridge, '06, 
is on the musical clubs, and Thayer, 
'06, on the golf team. Osborn, '07, 
is at his old position of right guard 
on the Varsity football team. Com- 
ins, '07, has been class secretary for 
three years, and is our representative 
on the Olio board for this year. 
Palmer, '07, took the second prlzt 
in Sophomore Latin last year. In 
the annual flag rush between the 
Freshmen and Sophomores held this 
fall, Feagans, '08, won the contest 
for the Sophomores by capturing the 
flag in about two minutes. He wab 
also a member of his class basebah 
team. Gllpatric, '08, was a member 
of the Freshman Kellogg flfteen in 
declamation last year. Derbyshire, 
'05, and Gardner, '05, were elected 
to Phi Beta Kappa last year. Derby- 
shire was also on the Hyde sixteen 
and the Hardy flfteen. Ine Kent 
prize of |100 was awarded to Gard- 
ner, '05, for the best essay on an 
assigned topic. 

The chapter feels very proud of the 
Freshman delegation. We are sure 
that they will prove one of the strong- 
est Delta U. has ever had at Am- 
herst. H. L. Smith, '09, has already 
made the Banjo club, and Is secre- 
tary of his class. In the fall track 
meet McKay, '09, took third place 
in the mile run, beating out some fast 
men. 

Our house is always open, and we 
would be glad to see any of the 
brothers who may be in this vicinity 
at any time. T. B. AVBRILL. 

ALUMNI NEWS. 

'54 — The late WiUard Merrill 
formed the subject of a comparison 
with certain prominent insurance 



officials in an editorial In the "Boa- 
ton Transcript," a part of which fol- 
lows: 

Sometimes we are enabled through 
force of contrast to obtain a clearer 
light on questionable transactions. 
The "Waterbury American" of a re- 
cent date contains a letter written in 
1896 by Willard Merrill, vice-presi- 
dent of the Northwestern Mutual Life 
Insurance Company, In answer to 
the solicitation of a Republican con- 
gressional committee In Iowa for 
campaign funds. This letter was a 
courteous refusal to comply, an ex- 
tract from which was as follows: 

"This company has never made a 
contribution of that sort. We have 
felt that we had no right to make a 
contribution even In cases where a 
great disaster had overtaken a city 
or a section of the country. We are 
aware that some companies have 
made contributions in some of these 
cases, but under our charter, and as 
we understand our duty, we have felt 
compelled to drcline when requests 
have been made. There are both 
Democrats and Republicans on the 
official staff of this company, but we 
are without exception this fall In 
favor of sound money and shall vote 
accordingly. We have no sympathy 
with the free coinage of silver, but 
we do not feel at liberty to take part 
as a company In any political cam- 
paign." 

There Is no casuistry about that 
reply. It Is the plain outgiving of an 
honest man. "The American" speaks 
of Mr. Merrill, who is now dead, but 
who used to be an occasional visitor 
In Waterbury, as "a man of Ideal 
conscientiousness, and one whose re- 
ligion Influenced and decided every 
act of his life. He was a very strong 
Republican, an Insurance man of the 
Jacob Greene type, and we are glad to 
believe that such men are In the ma- 
jority. We don't hear much about 
them because they never become no- 
torious. Downright business honesty 
neither courts nor receives publicity 
— as a rule. Sometimes It Is neces- 
sary to bring It Into view at the front 
of the stage to show that It has not 
perished from the earth. 

'79 — On October 22, at the Flrsi 
Congregatlnal church, Lincoln, Neb., 
Rev. J. E. Tuttle rebuked the presl

dents of the three New York life in- 
surance companies and declared that 
convicts were less deserving of eter- 
nal stigma, than they were. The 
meeting was held under the auspices 
of the National Prison Congress. 

Dr. Tuttle declared that the worst 
men seldom entered prison. Those 
who did time left disgraced for life. 
Trickery in business he denounced 
as worse. 

•86 — ^TrumbuU White is editor of 
"The Red Book/' a monthly maga- 
sine that has made a big success. 

'86 — Speaking before the special 
commission appointed to consider in- 
dustrial and technical education, ai 
the Masachusetts State House on 
September 22, Robert A. Woods said 
there is great need throughout the 
country for men of highly trained 
skill. "We have done much to de- 
velop captains of industry/' said Mr. 
Woods, "but the places of non-com- 
missioned officers are lacking in com- 
petent men. The industrial future of 
Massachusetts depends on our devel- 
oping a higher degree of skill. The 
fact that 30,000 men in this State are 
taking instruction in the correspond- 
ence schools show how much special 
training is needed. The majority of 
the pupils turned out by the public 
schools are sure to enter the ranks of 
the unskilled. We need institutions 
which will give high-grade training 
with instructions in the principles of 
several trades. There is no danger 
of flooding the ranks of industry, 
though some workingmen are afraid 
of it." 

'87 — Alonzo M. Murphy was 
chosen one of the directors of the 
recently organized university club of 
Spokane, Wash., to serve for a term 
of three years.

The year of 1905 marks the be- 
ginning of the 103rd year of Bow- 
doin college and never was a year 
more favorable to the success 01 
Bowdoin's future. The class of 1909 
is the largest class that has ever en- 
tered Bowdoin. It is full of athletic 
material as well as scolastic ability. 
Four freshmen have already made 
their places on the football team, 
three of whom are Delta Upsilon 
men, Blair, '09, quarterback, Stacey, 
'09, right-tackle and Hafford, '09, 
right half back. Reed, '09, is also a 
promising man on the varsity squad. 

In the baseball games between 
the sophomores and freshmen, '08 
sophomore team we were represent- 
sophomores team we were represent- 
ed by Hayes, '08, and on the fresh- 
man team by Richardson, '09, and 
Harlow, '09. In the freshmen- 
sophomore football game soon to be 
played we will be well represented. 

At the recent class election Bro. 
Phillips, '09, was chosen vice-presi- 
dent of the freshman class. 

Prepartions are already being 
made for the college glee club and 
Delta Upsilon will show up well. 
Wilson, '07, who sang on the club 
last year, will fill the same position 
this year and also the position of 
as8t.-manager. One or two fresh- 
men will also make a strong bid for 



52 



THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



places. In the college band Cooper, 
'09, is solo cornetlst. 

Wilson, '07, manager of the base- 
ball team is making preparations for 
the college minstrels, for the benefit 
of the baseball association, to be held 
January 19th. Delta Upsilon will 
have several men in the chorus, also 
one end-man, Kingsley, '07, and 
one soloist, Blair, '09. 

Through the boundless energy and 
fraternal loyalty of our alumni, we 
have secured the finest chapter house 
at Bowdoin, as has been admitted by 
popular opinion. It has been a great 
incentive and a great aid to us in 
securing men. 

Our rushing this year was done by 
very simple methods. Very little 
money was spent to entertain men, 
as it was not necessary. We simply 
invited a man to dinner, showed him 
the house, and the fellows, told him 
of the merits of Delta Upsilon, and 
he pledged. In this way we got six- 
teen men, and were obliged to turn 
away several more. This, I think, 
shows, more than anything else, how 
well Delta Upsilon is thought of out- 
side of the college world. In closing 
I extend, in behalf of the Bowdoin 
chapter a cordial invitation to all 
Delta Upsilon men to visit us, when- 
ever they are in the boundaries of 
the State of Maine.

Since last June, affairs at Brown 
have been progressing in their nor- 
mal manner, and Delta Upsilon haa 
had its usual allotment of competi- 
tive and elective honors. The most 
important events at the end of the 
year were, of course, the Class Day 
and Commencement Day exercises, in 
both of which Delta Upsilon was. 
represented by Cronkhite, '05, who 
delivered the Address to the Under- 
graduates and was also one of the 
four commencement Speakers chosen 
by the faculty. On Class Day the 
Chapter entertained its visiting Alum- 
ni and friends at the fraternity house, 
to our enjoyment as well as theirs. 

Among the honors distributed at 
the end of the year. Delta U. was 
represented by Wood, *05, who re- 
ceived tne Phi Beta Kappa key; by 
Whitenack, '06, who was elected to 
the Camarian Club, the honorary 
senior society at Brown; by Dennet, 
'07, and Hurley, '07, who were ap- 
pointed to membership in the 
Sphinx, a literary and philosophical 
society; by Bruce, '07, and Dennet, 
'07, who received respectively the- 
first and second prizes in the Hicks 
Prize Debate; by MacPherson, '07, 
who won the third Carpenter Prize 
in Oratory; by Whitenack, '06, who- 
was appointed editor of the Brown 
Study in the Brunonian, our month- 
ly; and by Macgregor, '07, who wab 
made a member of the Board of Ath- 
letic Directors. As for athletics 
last spring, in base-ball, though we 
had no 'Varsity men we supplied the 
class teams with good material. 
Among the winners of numerals in 
base-ball were Reynolds, '07, Gumey, 
'07, Brown, *07, Dennet, '07, mana- 
ger; Lyall, '08, and Townsend, '08. 

This fall, in athletics, Brown is 
gaining strength, and on one of the 
finest foot-ball teams In the college's 
history is Macgregor, '07, the veteran 
tackle, and Conklin, '08, last year's 
guard and this year's center. In the 
inter-class Field Day events. Tucker,

'70 — E. Benjamin Andrews, chan- 
cellor of the University of Nebraska, 
has come to the defence of the men 
who have amassed large fortunes, 
and who use them intelligently. 

Chancellor Andrews, as a member 
of the committee which will dispense 
the 110,000,000 gift of John D. Rock- 
efeller for educational purposes, has 
been making a study of the questions 
involved. In an address on Septem- 
ber 23, he said: 

"Current rage against promoters is 
in great measure simply part and 
parcel of the popular hostility felt 
against all the wealthy. This hatred, 
so deep, so widespread, so intense, 
even to savagery, so unreasoning ana 
so relentless, I deem the most 
dagerous sign of our times. 

"Hardly a newspaper in the land 
but frequently gives it; various pul- 
pits are equally intemperate. The pith 
is that this gnashing of teeth goes 
on against the rich as such, without 
the least discrimination between 
good and good for nothing. After 
the lessons of past years, adults who 
lose by being drawn into unsea- 
worthy schemes should be ashamed 
to plead the baby act." 

'81 — Charles B. Hughes was nom- 
inated by the Republican party foi 
the ofl9ce of Mayor of New York city, 
without his previous consent. When 



officially notified of the nomination 
he informed the committee that as 
he could not accept without sacrific- 
ing the work he had undertaken as 
chief counsel for the legistlaive in- 
surance inquiry committee he was 
constrained to decline. It was a 
most unprecedented situation and 
evoked a great deal of comment in 
the newspapers, which unanimously 
commended the strong and charact- 
eristic stand taken by Bro. Hughes. 

Charles E. Hughes, chief counsel 
of the N. Y. Legislative Insurance 
Inquiry Committee will be one of 
the speakers at the dinner of the New 
York Alumni of the University of 
Rochester at the University club, 
December 4. 

The frontispiece of "The World's 
Work" for November is a full page 
portrait of Charles E. Hughes. 

'83 — Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, D. 
D., of Topeka, Kan., delivered the 
sermon at the fifty-ninth annual 
meeting of the American Missionary 
Association at Worcester, Mass., Oc- 
tober 17-19, 1905. 

'83 — On October 24 Rev. Charles 
M. Sheldon, the reform preacher and 
author, whose book, "In His Steps," 
brought him fame, was dangerously 
ill at Topeka, Kan., and may have to 
submit to an operation. A consul- 
tation of physicians pronounced his 
case alarming. 

'87 — ^A protest against the use of 
sensational methods for attracting 
people to church services was made 
by the Rev. Dr. B. L. Whitman at the 
last meeting of the Philadelphia 
Baptist association at Philadelphia on 
October 11. 

"We should not ask people into 
our churches to worship," he said, 
"and then present to them a program 
for mere entertainment. When our 
ministers are truly imbued witu the 
spirit of God there will not be used 
such subjects for sermons as 'A Wo- 
man in the Case,' a sermon on John 
the Baptist, 'How It Looks to a Man 
Up a Tree,' a sermon on Zaccheus, 
and 'Come and Hear a Donkey Bray,*^ 
a sermon on Balaam and his ass. 

"And there is too much work be- 
ing piled on the shoulders of the 
pastors by congregations. Tue pas- 
tor is expected to do so many things

that ought to be done by people in 
the congregation that he does not 
have sufficient time for prayerful 
preparation and study. In many 
instances the minister is the only 
financier in the congregation, and 
then he is expected to head every 
subscription list and to go on all com- 
mittees. What we need most of all 
is to call ourselves back to the life 
of prayer."

At present the greater part of our 
attention is centered on the foot- 
ball team and its preparations under 
the new Dartmouth coaches to de- 
feat Stanford on November 11th. 
As yet the team has not been scored 
against and Judging from the game 
that the freshman team put up when 
it beat Stanford 6-0, we will not be 
disappointed with the varsity when 
its turn comes. Stem, '06, will 
play right guard, which position he 
has filled for the last two years and 
Golcher, '08, is putting up a good 
fight for left half. 

The game this year will be played 
on the new football field at Stanford. 
On the night before, the California 
Alumni club of Delta Upsllon will 
hold its annual banquet at the Stan-

certain of having a rousing good 
time.

Drescher, '06, is on the Honor

and Wilcox, '07, has been elected to 
the DeKoven club. 

The Chapter has received several 
enthusiastic letters from its dele- 
gates, Armstrong, '06, and Teichert, 
'07, regarding their enjoyable trip 
and the very brotherly way in which 
the Chapters that they have visited 
have welcomed them.

At the opening of the fall term 
our active membership was reduced 
to twelve by the loss of Hunt and 
Davis, '07, and Higglns, '08. Pour 
only of our pledged men entered col- 
lege this year, but as a result of a 
very successful rushing season we 
were able to initiate twelve men. 

The annual initiation took place at 
the Chapter Hall, Thursday evening, 
October 12. After the initiation 
ceremonies encouraging words were 
spoken by President White, Brown, 
'87; and Bro. Dunham, '86, presented 
to the Chapter a framed photograph 
of the Pifty-flrst Annual Convention 



held with the Rochester Chapter.

We feel that the opening weeks of 
college have been most prosperous 
for us. Through the rushing season 
every one has worked hard for the 
chapter, and we have every reason to 
feel proud of the new men whom we 
have Initiated and we believe they 
will prove most loyal Delta U's. We 
have also a fine start on a delegation 
for next year, having four men 
pledged. While the rushing season 
Is practically over for this fall, yet we 
strive to make the whole year a rush- 
ing season In order that we may look 
over well the material in the Acad- 
emy. 

On October 19 our annual initia- 
tion banquet was held and we were 
pleased to have with us a number 
of our alumni and three men from 
the Hamilton chapter. The following 
toasts were responded to at the 
banquet, Joseph F. McOregory,Ph.D.,

This year we are very fortunate in 
that we have in town four of last 
year's class who are ever ready to 
advise and aid us. They are: Bro. 
Aude, who is the instructor in 
Mechanical Drawing In College and 
teaches Chemistry in the Academy, 
and who is also the coach of the 
Academy football team; Bro. Bailey, 
who has entered the Seminary; Bro. 
K. O. Smith, who is doing work in 
the college; and Bro. W. A. Root, 
who is in business with his father. 

A. M. Hughes, '06, is teaching first 
year Greek and Anabasis in college 
in connection with his regular senioi 



work. On the football team we have 
Stowell, *07, and Porter, '06. The 
latter, who Is manager of the basket- 
ball team for this year, is very busy 
arranging the schedule of games for 
the season. Cronkhlte, '09, is captain 
of the freshman track team. In the 
Sophomore-Freshman Track Meet, 
which was held this fall, Jones, '09, 
took first place In the 100-yard dash, 
and Cronkhite, '09, won the pole 
vault. 

We expect to celebrate on Novem- 
ber 21 the fortieth anniversary of 
the founding of our chapter, and ex- 
pect to have a rousing time then. 

We have under way now a move- 
ment for the purpose of obtaining 
funds with which to refurnish our 
parlor. Letters were sent to all our 
alumni asking for help and they have 
responded most nobly, and we extend 
our thanks to those who have alread> 
aided us. 

The college this year has an enter- 
ing class of over ninety. 

Science Hall, for which ground was 
broken last spring, is steadily ap- 
proaching completion and is to be a 
fine addition to our group of college 
buildings. 

We feel that It was a great priv- 
ilege to our chapter to have the na- 
tional convention so near. A large 
number of our men and alumni were 
present at the different meetings, and 
we all received great inspiration to 
work harder for delta U in the 
future. On Saturday and Sunday 
after the convention our chapter en- 
tertained about twenty men from dif- 
ferent chapters.

As the result of strenuous rushing 
since the end of September, we have 
secured three good men from the 
entering class. Our freshmen are 
quickly becoming factors In college 
life. In the fall regatta Hoag rowed 
on his class crew. Pell is out for 
"Spectator" and Is trying for the mid- 
dleweight event in the cane sprees, 
which come off just before the Christ- 
mas holidays. On November 6, In 
the presence of a large number of 
alumni, these three men were inltia* 
ted into membership in the fraternity. 
We have a good representation in the 
Law School this year, all three affili- 
ates being members of its entering 
class. 

On October 6, we held an informal 
housewarmlng in our new abode, in 



order that our alumni might again 
get in touch with the fellows and see 
what we have been doing for the last 
few months. Many of the older men 
were on hand. The New York chap- 
ter attended in a body, including Bro. 
Crossett, '84, who left a gigantic 
loose-leaf register at his departure,, 
as a present to the chapter. Our 
new house has been a great help in 
the keen rushing that has been going 
on. It is comfortably filled at pres- 
ent, there being room for about & 
dozen men In all. Warren, '04, who 
is In business down town, is living 
with us for the winter. 

In the quarter Just past we have 
been very much In evidence about 
college. Maynard, '06, was elected 
secretary of the senior class, a per- 
manent position. Roberts, '07, is 
treasurer of the junior science class, 
and Chapln, '07, has been elected 
secretary of the college division. 

Varsity basketball practice has just 
started. Several positions on the 
team are to be filled by substitutes 
on last year's squad, and from the 
early work Halght, '06, and Fet 
tretch, '06, are first choice In their 
respective positions. 

At a meeting of the lacrosse asso- 
ciation In October, Temple, '06, was 
elected president, and Hill, '07, sec- 
retary. Temple played on the la- 
crosse team all last season at cover- 
point. 

The University trophy-room is now 
under the direction of Maynard, '06. 

On November 17 the musical clubs 
went to Ithaca, where a joint concert 
was held with the Cornell clubs on 
the evening before the Columbia- 
Cornell football game. Mastln, '08» 
and F. Swartwout, '08, were with 
the glee club, while Temple, '06, 
played with the mandolin club. 

We were glad to entertain the 
Swarthmore delegates, Bros. Palmer 
and Walker, as they passed through 
New York on their way to the con- 
vention. Our delegates, Essex, '06» 
and Roberts, '07, returned from Utlca 
with glowing reports of the reception 
they met with up state. The trans-

We began the year with a small 
chapter, owing to the fact that we lost 
last year five men by graduation, and 
three who have gone into business. 
However, we are very fortunate in 
having with us three of the old men — 
Bros. A. D. Camp, R. C. Rodgers and 
H. E. Santee. Bros. Camp and Rod- 
gers, of the class of '05, are instruct- 
ing in the university, and Bro. San- 
tee, '04, is completing his course in 
medicine. 

On October 28 the thirty-sixth an- 
nual initiation banquet was held at 
the chapter house. A number of 
alumni members of the chapter were 
present and speeches were in order. 
Robert James Eidlitz, '85, was toast- 
master. 

In athletics the chapter has not 
been exceedingly active. H. E. Davis,. 
'07, varsity fullback last year, has* 
been forced to withdraw from the 
team this year owing to injuries that 
he received some time ago. How- 
ever, the pledged men are showing ft 
very active spirit in college activities, 
and are making a very good start. 
One of them is already on the board 
of the paper published by the Col- 
lege of Engineering, and several oth- 
ers are working hard on their class 
athletic teams. 

We have on the Glee Club two men, 
Nichols, '06, and I. Davis, '08; and 
Wesson is on the Mandolin Club. 
Nichols was also successful in the 
competition for the Masque, our uni- 
versity dramatic club. H. P. BuBois» 
'06, is the editor-in-chief of the Cor- 
nell Daily "Sun," and A. W. DuBois 
is the manager of the cross country 
team. 

We were glad to have a number of 
alumni with us at the initiation and 
again when we gave a small house 
party at the time of the Cornell-Col- 
umbia game.

ALUMNI NEWS 

'72 and '74 — ^The address to the In- 
coming freshman class of Stanford 
University, which for many years has 
been delivered by President David 
Starr Jordan, was given this year by 
Dr. John Casper Branner, vice-presi- 
dent of the university and acting 
president in the absence of Dr. Jor- 
dan. In this address President Jor- 
dan has always outlined the path- 
ways in which the freshman who de- 
sires to do right should walk, and his 
dry humor has made it one of the In- 
teresting events of the opening of 
the college year. The address was 
given a somewhat broader scope this 
year, and was intended for the ears 
of the whole university. 

'77 — ^Dr. Leland O. Howard, en- 
tomologist of the Department of Ag- 
riculture, recently stated before the 
International Sanitary commission 
that the fonts of holy water in 
churches are in many instances a 
breeding place of yellow fever mos- 
quitoes and a grave source of danger. 

Dr. L. O. Howard was sent to Eu- 
rope in June by the Massachusetts 
entomological officials for the purpose 
of collecting and shipping to this 
country parasites for the suppression 
of the gypsy and brown tail moths. 
On his return he announced that he 
had made an agreement with Euro- 
pean officials whereby they will Ship 
to this country the insects needed 
here for the moth warfare, in return 
for American parasites which are 
needed abroad. 

Speaking of his plans, Dr. Howard 
)said that the parasites he had secur- 
«ed merely would keep the moth pest 
in check, and that property owners 
'{Should not in any way relax their 
^watchfulness over their trees.

Last year was looked upon as a 
signal year for De Pauw University. 
But the opening of this year surpas- 
ses last with a greater number of 
students, a better financial outlook, 
and many improvements on the col- 
lege buildings and grounds. With- 
out a doubt the new era predicted 
for De Pauw is already here and no 
one has contributed so much to this 
bright outlook as has President 
Hughes. 

However in football our iftiowing 
has not been so satisfactory as it was 
last year. The general line up is not

so good. The heaviest blow which 
the team sustained at the beginning 
of the season was the absence of its 
captain, Bro. Carl Tucker, who was 
in the West and owing to circum- 
stances over which he had no control 
was rendered unable to return this 
term. The team has had to over- 
come other obstacles such as injured 
men and men going out at request 
of parents. As a result of all this 
our first gfames were not promising. 
But through the faithful work of 
the coach and the Athletic Board a 
good team has been developed and 
our last three games have scored 
victory and honor for De Pauw. 

For years De Pauw Delta Upsilon 
has looked forward to the time when 
she could possess a chapter house. 
As a result of much faithful work, 
planning and sacrificing on the part 
of alumni members and of the active 
chapter, our men returned this year 
to a beautiful fraternity home. The 
method of purchasing was by the 
incorporation of a house company, 
^ares taken by the alumni and men 
of the active chapter. 

There were ten old men back with 
the opening of school. In the hard- 
est spike that De Pauw has ever seen 
eight splendid representative men 
donned the gold and blue. On ac- 
count of a slight amount of prepara- 
tory work yet to be done by two of 
these men, William Brown of Green- 
castle, Indiana, and Arthur C. Cor- 
nell of Paw Paw, Illinois, they will 
not be initiated until later in the 
year. 

Already this year we have had 
several visits from Alumni members. 
These visits afforded us great pleas- 
ure, and we extend a cordial invita- 
tion to any who might at any time 
be able to come and see us. 

C. Earle Smith, '07, and Fred 
Williams, '06, will be back in school 
next term.

representation in college enterprises:

'07, is busily engaged as business 
manager of the "Hamiltonian." 

Our freshmen are already taking 
an active part in college life. Spen- 
cer, '09, was elected temporary presi- 
dent of his class at the first election. 
Leavenworth, '09, won the Baldwin 
prize entrance examination with pa- 
pers of a very high character; he is 
also a promising track man. Meeker, 
'07, one of our initiates, won the first 
prize in speaking last June for his 
class; he is also the assistant mana- 
ger of the musical clubs and a mem- 
ber of the Advisory Board. And so 
with the good work of our old mem-

new men, we feel that our chapter 
has promise of a successful year.

'61 — After thirty years spent In 
educational work. Dr. David L. 
Kiehle is going back to preach in the 
church which he founded in Preston, 
Minn., forty years ago, when he came 
to Minnesota fresh from Union Theo- 
logical seminary. For ten years af- 
ter he came to Minnesota Dr. Kiehle 
was pastor of the Presbyterian 
church in Preston. He organized 
the congregation and secured funds 
to erect a church building. Then he 
left the ministry to follow education- 
al work. 

His services to the educational sys- 
tem of the state are too well known 
to need detailed comment. He began 
as superintendent of schools at St. 
Cloud, and from there was called to 
the office of state superintendent of 
education. Later he organized the 
pedagogical department of the state 
university, where he still remains 
as head of the summer training 
school for teachers. 

Dr. Kiehle's return to the minis- 
try is not permanent. He says: "[ 
have no intention of severing my con- 
nection with educational work or re- 
turning permanently to the ministry. 
I shall continue my work in connec- 
tion with the School of Home Study 
and Correspondence through the win- 
ter and mail addressed to me here 
will be forwarded to me at Preston." 

'73 — J. Edman Massee has been 
seriously 111 for nearly a year. We 
hope to report his full recovery soon. 

'79 — ^A practical working out of 
advanced religious thought has re- 
sulted in a very significant movement 
under the leadership of the former 
evangelist, Benjamin Fay Mills, in 
Los Angeles, Cal. Of the movement 
the "Arena" says: "Beginning a few 
months since with only a handful of 
devoted individuals and a great idea, 
with no organization, no money, no 
meeting place, no prestige or lever- 
age of powerful influence, the Los 
Angeles Fellowship has grown into 
a compact organization of over 1,000 
contributing members, with 25 work- 
ing committees, with activities along 
many lines, with a cash asset of 
114,000, with a hearing in the public 
press, and with universal enthusiasm 



and limitless hopes and purposes. The 
head of the fellowship is, of course^ 
its founder, Mr. Mills; working with 
him is his wife; and working undei 
their direction are other members of 
their family and a large number of 
committees, secretaries, assistants^ 
etc. 

The attendance at Mr. Mills' pub- 
lic meetings has been phenomenal. 
The difficulty has not been to get the 
people to come, but to get halls large 
enough to hold them. Hall after hall 
has been given up as too small. 
Plans are now being perfected for 
the erection of a great building to 
accommodate the various activitiea 
of the fellowship, including a hall 
for public meetings, amusement halls, 
business headquarters, committee 
rooms, publication offices of the Fel- 
lowship Magazine, etc."

Ralph Underbill, who had been elect- 
ed president of the Chapter, but who 
is now teaching at the Choate School, 
In Walllngford, Conn.; W. W. Thay- 
er, who is now a Rhodes scholar at 
Oxford, but Is with us here in spirit; 
Frank Spencer, who played on the 
Nine last spring, and Clarence Kemp- 
ner, our star actor, now reporting for 
a New York paper. Thes^ were seri- 
ous losses, indeed, but at the very 
opening of college we were mucu 
saddened by the untimely death of 
Bro. Walter Le Grande Gifford, at his 
home In North East, Md. Bro. Gif- 
ford had been one of our most active 
and beloved members, and at the 
time of his death held the position of 
chapter editor. In addition, our 
treasurer, Austin, left for a year to 
accept a position as a tutor in Rye, 
N. Y., but fortunately left the funds 
in the capable hands of Bro. Eustls. 

Football is now the all-engrossing 
topic of conversation. Hanley is a 
candidate for fullback on the Varsity, 
while Kempner is shining as quarter- 
back on the Second. The work of 
Hurlin In composing football music 
'Should also have its effects when we 
meet Yale on November 25th. Keays 
also sacrificed a collar bone to help 
the good cause along. Johnson, '07, 
and Brackett, '06, are out for their 
class tennis teams. Lord is president 
of the St. Paul's Society, Holmes is on 
the Banjo club and Christy on the 
Mandolin club, Holcombe is secre- 
tary of the Phi Beu Kappa, and of 
the Social Service committee, and 
Eaton of the Andover club. 

Of last year's graduates, eleven 
have returned to the University as 
members of the various graduate 
schools. Bates is a Rhodes scholltr, 
Demlng and Whitney are assistants in 
college courses. Groves is a proctor, 
and secretary of the Phillips Brooks 
House association. Gring, our star 
pole-yaulter of two years back, has 
returned after a year's absence, Ad- 
ams is seen occasionally, and John- 
son, Whitney, Burns, and several 
more "grads" are living at the house. 

The great event of our year is al- 
ways the annual Elizabethan play, 
and with this in the capable hands of 
Hurlin, a successful season is as- 
sured. The play has not been defi- 



nitely selected as yet, but will proba- 
bly be "Monsieur Thomas," by Beau- 
mont and Fletcher. Though we have 
lost Clarence Kempner, our shining 
light for two seasons, yet nine of last 
year's cast have returned, while 
among our new members there is 
promise of good material. 

The chapter begins the year with 
every sign of a successful season, and 
if the finances can be successfully 
managed, we hope to be in a position 
to build a new house In the spring.

Out of the smallest Freshman class 
that has entered Lafayette for a 
number of years the chapter has suc- 
ceeded in obtaining oight good solid 
men for Delta U. With twelve 
fraternities rushing at once the 
competition was unusually high and 
we are congratulating ounfelves on 
getting our share of men, in fact, 
more than our share. On October 
24 the new men were impressively 
initiated, following whic^^ we held a 
banquet at the Huntingdon Hotel 
where the active chapter and our 
alumni endeavored to infuse true 
Delta U loyalty and enthusiasm into 
the initiates. 

The new Theta Delta Chi house is 
about completed and there is a 
rumor that another fraternity is 
about to break ground for a new 
home. This inspires us to greater 
effort as we realized during the past 
rushing season the difficulty of 
properly entertaining new men with- 
out the aid of a house. 

In athletics Brother Shields, '06, 
was playing sub-end on the Varsity 
till put out of the game by injuries 
and Brother Styer, '08, is a half- 
back on the Scrub. In the class base- 
ball games at the opening of the 
term Brother Reeder and MorL 
played with 1906, Brother Lerch 
with 1907, Brothers Kinsey, Craig 



and Wade with 1908 and Brptl^er 
Ross with 1909.

The college year 1904-05 closed 
for us with a banquet celebrating 
the twentieth anniversary of' the 
founding of the Chapter. Brother 
Goldsmith of the Quarterly and 
Brother F. M. Crossett, New York, 
'84, who was largely instrumental in 
the founding of our Chapter, added 
much to the pleasure of ihe occa- 
sion by their presence. After the 
banquet, a meeting was held and an 
Alumni AjBSOCiation organized*, 
which has since incorporated. 

We lost two men at the close of 
the college year, Burchsted, '04-06 
and Brown '07, and to our great dis- 
may, two more were forced to leave 
at the opening of college by a ne% 
faculty rule concerning conditions. 
These were A. B. Marshall, '07, and 
Hunter, '07. They will return, 
however, in the summer of 1906, and 
there is a possibility that Brothers 
Burchsted and Brown also will re 
turn. 

The house was open all summer, 
a goodly number of us being here, 
either in summer school or at work. 

The number of active members ii. 
the house this fall is rather small 
owing to the loss of the four brothers 
mentioned, and to the fact that one 
of our men is living outside. But 
we are enabled to get along very 
comfortably by the aid of Brothers 
Jones '04, Mendoza '04, and Galvin 
'05 who are living with us. 

On Founders Day, Oct. 12 th., took 
place the Installation of the new 
President of the University, Henry 
S. Drinker, C. E., of Philadelphia, an 
enthusiastic and loyal Lehigh man. 



a very able lawyer, and a thorough 
gentleman. He has become very 
popular in the short time he has been 
with us; and a period of great pros- 
perity and advancement is assured 
to Lehigh under his competent direc- 
tion of her affairs. Brother Harlan 
S. Miner, '88, gave the Address of 
Welcome from the Alumni at the 
Installation banquet. 

After the ceremony of installation, 
ground was brolcen for Drown 
Memorial Hall, which is to be erected 
on the campus in memory of the late 
President Drown. 

The Hall, which was one of Dr. 
Drown's most cherished plans, is to 
be a student's club with a large 
auditorium, a dining hall, reception 
rooms, pool, billiard and lounging 
rooms, bowling alleys, etc. 

President Drinker wishes to in- 
augurate a dormitory system, and 
there is some talk of giving build- 
ing sites on the campus to such of 
the fraternities as desire to build 
there. If these plans should be car- 
ried out they will revolutionize col- 
lege and fraternity life at Lebigh. 

The Delta Tau Deltas and the 
Alpha Tau Omegas have, this fall,

nearer the campus. 

The football outlook did not seem 
very encouraging at the outset, bat 
the team is showing steady improve- 
ment, and is likely to make a strong 
finish. Dunn, '07, at center and 
Rommel, '08 at half-back are repre- 
senting Delta U. on the Varsity. 
Brother Dunn has played in every 
game tbus far and is doing excellent 
work. Brother Rommel has played 
in the last four games and bids fair 
to hold down his position for the 
rest of the season. H. C. Marshall, 
'06, is doing very nearly varsity work 
on the scrub. 

Stair, '07 is stage manager of the 
Minstrel Show, and Smith, '06, and 
Denlinger, '06. are senior-instructors 
in chemistry. 

Our rushing prospects are unusual- 
ly bright. Although we are not al- 
lowed to pledge freshmen until New 
Tear's, we are rushing a large num- 
ber of exceptionally good men. Ow- 
ing to the fact that seven of our num- 
ber expect to graduate in June, it is 
necessary that we take a large quota

from 1909. The entering class, 
though small, contains .much first- 
class material and we hope to take 
eight or nine good men from among 
them. 

Bros. Dunn, Rommel and Earn- 
shaw wish to express their gratitude 
to the New York Chapter for the gen- 
erous and brotherly reception accord- 
ed to them some weeks ago. 

We are glad to have with us, as 
Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., Bro. R. 
8. Rogers, '05, Syracuse. 

We enjoyed our usual seance with 
the California brethren on their way 
to Convention. Two of our number 
were so carried away with these 
brothers that they were unable to 
tear themselves away this side of New 
York. They are thinking of going to 
California next year. 

We acknowledge with pleasure vis- 
its from Bros. W. P. Bates, Brown, 
'02, John A. Williams, Colgate, '01, 
and C. F. Carman, '99, of this chap- 
ter. 

Our delegates have returned from

ALiUMNI NEWS. 

'84 — Both hisses and cheers greet- 
ed the address of Charles G. Dawes 
of Chicago before the meeting of the 
State Bankers' association. Mr. 
Dawes championed corporation 
methods against Indiscriminate 
<;ritici8m. He directed his powers 
of denunciation against the "down- 
with-the-high-flnance" school of lit- 
erature, and praised the Garfield re- 
port on the beef trust. 

The preceding speaker had com- 
mented upon the multitudinous sins 
of the captains of industry in rough- 
shod manner. Mr. Dawes was not 
able to contain his rising indignation. 
He began a vehement counter-attack 
as soon as he was given the floor, and 
was greeted by a tempest of hisses. 
But, nothing daunted, the ex-con- 
troller of the currency continued, 
modeling his style on "Cicero against 
<3atiline," and the effect was spec- 
tacular. He brought his peroration 
to a thrilling climax with a staccato 
dictum that reduced his hearers to 
ti state of rich and penitent enthusi- 
asm. 

••To hell with platitudes," de- 
claimed Mr. Dawes. Never did an 
actor make a better point than the 
usually sedate president of Chicago's 
Central Trust company. The west- 
ern appreciation of a breezy phrase 
broke loose in a whirl of applause. 
Mr. Dawes had converted the hissers 



and the lance hurled in defense of 
capitalism had struck home. 

"I felt humiliated and ashamed at 
the remarks of the speaker who has 
Just finished," he began. **The gen- 
tleman saw nothing but wrong in 
everything. He seemed to be search- 
ing for the seamy side and to be 
overlooking the virtues in the ques- 
tion. This is no time for such utter- 
ances." 

Here the hisses started, but Mr. 
Dawes could not be stopped. 

'*! have no sympathy with the man 
who has been 'stuck' in Amalga- 
mated," he continued. "The first 
lesson in the business of stock buy- 
ing is to know exactly how much 
each share is worth. Stop these 
indefinite accusations. Do not try to 
fight Rockefeller, the steel trust, and 
half a dozen other organizations at 
once. Find one that is doing wrong 
and punish it. The lamentable fact 
is that you who howl continually 
have no constructive theories. We 
have too many iconoclasts and too 
few effective builders. It is the man 
who works for the right, not the man 
who talks against the wrong, that Is 
the real reformer. 

"This is the day of critics. Waves 
of investigation, such as are now 
sweeping over the land, come in 
periods of prosperity, for when we 
get our nose to the grindstone after 
a period of depression our first 
thought is to poke that nose into 
somebody else's business. 

"Let us have a sane consideration 
of the trust and corporation questions. 
There are good corporations and bad 
corporations. It is the duty of the 
citizens of the country to study the 
original contracts upon which co& 
porations are based. Were this done 
there would be less stock bought and 
fewer people defrauded out of 
money. Politicians and office seek- 
ers should not be permitted to look 
into the questions. Sane business 
men must take them up. 

"Prepare yourselves for the settle- 
ment of industrial questions in a 
logical manner. Do not denounce 
everything in general, but study some 
particular evil and then fight hard. 
Know your subject before you begin." 

Mr. Dawes defined a corporation 
as a device for the "distribution of 
risk, profits, ownership and manage-

'95 — "Washington and the West" 
by Archer B. Hulbert is the title of a 
book Just published by the Century 
Company. The volume treats of a 
new phase of Washington's life, show- 
ing his influence in shaping the early 
policy of the nation along the lines of 
expansion and internal improvement. 
Much of the book is devoted to his 
diary of September, 1784, which is 
given in full; this has to do with a 
trip across the Alleghenies in the 
neighborhood of Deer Park and Oak- 
land, Md., in the interest of internal 
improvements.

The college year opened at McGill 
with bright prospects for our fra- 
ternity. We had only three men in 
last year's graduating class and one 
of them is back with us taking a 
further degree. We have already 
taken in four men and have a line on 
several more. Bro. Will Stewart, one 
of our new initiates, is president of 
the McGill Athletic Association, the 
body which controls all athletics at 
McCill. 

The university Inter year sports 
were held on October 18. McCuaig, 
'06, ran first in the 220 yards and sec- 
ond in the 100 yards and 440 yards. 
Bro. Waugh distinguished himself by 
breaking the college records in the 
high jump and 120-yard hurdle 
events. He also won a place in the 
broad jump. 

On October 20th the McGill track 
team captained by Bro. McCuaig de- 
feated the track teams of Toronto and 
Queens, Bro. McCuaig making the 
highest individual score. 



On the football field we have Bro* 
Beckwith playing centre scrimmage 
for the first XIV. and several of the 
brethren playing on their class teams. 

At the annual meeting of the 
hockey club Bro. Ldndsay was elected 
president and at a later meeting Bro. 
McCuaig was chosen as manager of 
the team. Bro. Walker also is on 
the hockey club executive. 

In the intercollegiate football 
league McGill was unfortunate in los- 
ing her first two games each by the 
margin of but one point, but on 
Thanksgiving day she decisively de- 
feated Ottawa College. She was alsa 
awarded a draw in place of her first 
defeat as the ruling of the referee on 
one point was held to be wrong by a 
meeting of the league. 

At the Rifie Competition held Oc- 
tober 28 Bro. Woodyatt won sixth 
place and Bro. Lindsay also figured 
in the prize list. 

Bro. McCuaig is president of 
Science, '06. 

This year the new McGill Y. M. 
C. A. building called "Strathcona 
Hall" in honor of one of the princi- 
pal donors, Lord Strathcona, wa» 
opened. It is a beauUful and well 
furnished building of five stories in 
height containing besides large sit- 
ting and reading rooms a large audi- 
torium and also apartments for about 
60 or 80 students. 

Bros. McCuaig, Waugh and David- 
son report a splendid time at the con- 
vention in Utica and McGill is very 
glad to welcome Illinois University 
into our fraternity.

College has now been under way 
for a little over a month, and every- 
thing is well with the Michigan chap- 
ter. We look forward to one of the 
most successful years in our history. 
Above all, we have secured a large 
and good freshman class. Without 
detracting at all from past classes, 
alumni of our chapter have remark- 
ed that "these new ones are the 
best ever." In short, we are more 
than satisfied.

We have Just learned of the admis-

Delta Upsilon, and we all feel that 
within a year this will be one of the 
leading chapters of our fraternity. 
Messrs. Frost and Finlay from Cham- 
paign were with us last week for sev- 
eral days, and made a great impres- 
sion upon all of us. 

Brothers Anderson and Tunison of 
Nebraska stopped off to see us as they 
passed through bound for convention,, 
and we shall not be satisfied until 
they come again. 

But we have had one deep sorrow 
this fall in the death of our dearly 
beloved brother, William Russell 
Lloyd. He graduated last year from 
the Law department, having previous- 
ly received his A. B. degree here also, 
was one of the best known men in 
the university, and without doubt did 
more for the fraternity than any man 
whom we have had with us in the 
past six years. His memory will ever 
be fresh, though he is no longer with 
us in person. ESlsewftiere in this 
number will be found resolutions of 
the chapter concerning his death.

and we have had our usual success 
as regards a Freshman delegation. 
On the first Saturday of the term 
we gave a dance in our rooms which, 
under the able management of Bro. 
Holmes, was a success in every 
sense of the word. Since then we 
have given but one dance. It is our 
•custom to hold these about once m 
two weeks throughout the year. Ath- 
letics here this year are not as suc- 
cessful as we could wish. We have 
won only two games out of five. We 
liave four more games and we are

The building will accommodate 
from twenty-five to thirty patients. 
In addition the Senator says he will

to provide that if the State at any 
time wishes to assume the charge and 
maintenance of the institution it may 
in the discretion of the trustees be 
turned over to the State with all its 
property and funds. The site has not 
been announced, but will be selected 
soon. The Senator says he makes the 
gift at the request of his children.

Weisel, who is sub-quarter. O'Brien,

coaching. 

Our chapter is taking a very ac-

have still two men on the Athletic 
Board of Control. Claude S. Haney 
is Colonel of the University Corps 
Cadets and C. P. Schouten is Major 
of the Ist Batallion. John Lowe, '07,

On September 29, the first initiation 
of the year took place. The charge 
to the six men was delivered by Bro. 
Tuttle, Amerst, '79. According to 
custom a banquet was held on the 
same evening at which Bro. Harrison^ 
'04, acted as toast-master. He pro-

already has begun to gather in the 
honors at Nebraska. Davis, '06, has 
been chosen editor-in-chief of the

M. C. A. work we have Lundin, '06, 
and Burr, '08, on the cabinet, while 
Stephens, '08, and Humphrey » 
'08, are doing good work on commit-

three Delta Upsilon men have been 
promoted to be non-commissioned of- 
ficers. These are Stephens, 'OS,. 
Burr, '08, and Clark, '08. The Vik- 
ings, an inter-fraternity organization^ 
have elected Clark, '08, to member- 
ship. 

In athletics we are especially 
strong this year. Lundin, '06, alter- 
nates at right tackle on the football 
team, and will probably get in some 
of the big games. In basket ball w<> 
have two first team men Hagensick, 
'06, and Moser, '07. Winters, '09, is 
also showing up. Track prospects 
are excellent. Hagenslck is expected 
to smash something in the pole vault 
next spring and Collins, a pledge, is 
a hammer thrower. Winters, '09^ 
another pledge, is our strongest track 
possibility. His events are the quar- 
ter mile and 220 yard dashes and the 
broad Jump. He holds the Missouri 
Valley record in the first named 
event and last spring Jumped 23 feet, 
6 inches. Sage, '09, has a record of 
4:50 in the mile run. 

Anderson and Tunison, our dele- 
gates to the convention, returned 
with many good ideas from the chap- 
ters they visited, which we hope to 
profit by. They also reported the 
finest kind of a time and a warm re-

ed. The board of regents of the Uni- 
versity, through the faculty have 
called a meeting between representa- 
tives of the fraternities and repre- 
sentatives of the faculty. The cause 
of this is a movement to prevent fra- 
ternities from rushing and pledging 
men until they become sophomores. 
The fraternities all are opposed to 
any such move and it will probably 
fall flat. 

Two new buildings are being com- 
pleted on the campus, the Physics 
building, Just west of the old Uni- 
versity hall, and the new administra- 
tion building in the center of the 
front campus. 

Preparations for our annual ban- 
quet and dance are under way for the 
eighth and ninth of December, and 
BO many old men have sign^ifled theii 
intentention of attending that a jolly 
reunion is assured.

The first month or more of college 
activity has passed, and the New York 
chapter has entered upon another 
year of — let us hope — a successful 
season. We miss with regret our 
brothers of 1905, Big "Tom" Reilley 
and the others, but we hope to have 
them with us frequently so we will 
only consider it a temporary loss. 

A delegation of twenty-three active 
men returned to college, including 



our two captains, LiUls of the base- 
ball team, and Tlppett of the track 
team. Captain Reilley of football 
and Captain Hardy of gym. were 
lost by graduation. 

New York University bids fair to 
have an active season along many 
lines, and prominent among its work- 
ers are enrolled many Delta U's. The 
positions they have won were acquir- 
ed through credit and not any particu- 
lar fraternity rivalry or desire. On the 
1906 publication, "The Violet," edited 
by the present Junior class, we have 
three of the board of editors. Hill 
and Van Home, with Baxter, business 
manager. 

Delta U. has again upheld her rep- 
utation for class officers. From the 
incoming freshman class we have 
Macdonald, president, and Wilson* 
class secretary. From the sophomore 
class, Bro. Scannel is vice-president, 
while Bro. Tippett holds the same 
place in the senior class. The Class 
Day officers have not as yet been 
chosen, but Delta U. looks forward 
to a good representation. 

Our chapter house has, indeed, 
fared well this fall. Through the ef- 
forts of Bro. Crossett, '84, we have 
been the recipient of forty college 
shields given by prominent alumni of 
Delta Upsilon among the colleges in 
which We have chapters. Our Rev. 
Bro. Bishop Henry Spellmeyer, D. D., 
*^^, sent the New York University 
shield; William Travers Jerome, 
Amherst, '82, contributed the Am- 
herst emblem, and the remainder 
were presented by our alumni of 
note. In addition to this we have 
a handsome new table and chairs for 
our reception room. We have nearly 
completed our collection of college 
flags and wish that those chapters 
which have not as yet exchanged 
would come to the front promptly. 

In our library we have nearly 
completed our flle of Quarterlies ana 
Annuals handsomely bound. Wc 
have also placed there a large pic- 
ture of Stephen J. Field, LL. D., 
Williams, '37, and an additional pic- 
ture of President Oarfleld. It may 
be of interest to note that in the 
lower left hand comer is a card bear-

•$6 — In a letter dated Washington, 
D. C, October 26, 1905, Bishop 
Henry Spellmeyer, D. D., LL. D., 
wrote to a member of the New York 
chapter: "I was at Cornell last Sun- 
day awhile — great Delta U. house 
there, proud of it. Success to the 
convention." 

'73 — John O. Van Home has suf- 
fered through the death of his moth- 
er, who died October 19, 1905, at his 
residence, 53 West 69th street. New 
York city. 

'76 — ^Lyman S. Linson of Albion, 
N. Y., is secretary of the Albion Pub-

try produce, building materials, etc. 
He attended the recent conventloi*

'81 — Isaac Hamburger of Helena, 
Montana, expects to return to Wash- 
ington, D. C, this winter with U. S.

spent part of the early summer m 
JSurope. Mrs. Hill was Miss Bme- 
leen H. Carlisle of Passaic, N. J., and 
they were married November 7, 1902. 

•92 — J. Francis Tucker, an orator 
for the Republican party, was assign- 
•ed to speak at an outdoor meeting 



at 117 th street and Fifth avenue, 
during the recent campaign in New 
York city. When those who had got 
up the meeting arrived at the corner 
they found a Tammany meeting 
there, and accordingly moved up a 
couple of blocks. Mr. Tucker, who 
arrived late, had no notice of the 
change. Arriving at 117th street and 
finding a meeting going on, he as- 
cended the platform, and requested 
that he be allowed to speak at once, 
as he was in a hurry to keep another 
engagement. The chairman oblig- 
ingly complied with his request, ana 
the orator who was speaking was told 
to stop and give Mr. Tucker a chance. 
The first two or three sentences of 
Mr. Tucker's speech struck the crowd 
as queer and there were some mur- 
murs of discontent, but it was not un- 
til he asked, "has Mr. Murphy told 
you yet where he got it?" that the 
crowd tried to storm the stand. 

"Where in blazes did you come 
from?" asked the chairman of the 
meeting. 

"From the Republican County 
committee," said Tucker. "Isn't this 
a Republican meeting?" 

The chairman conveyed to the 
crowd the information that Mr. Tuck- 
er was a Republican orator who had 
made a mistake. The retreat of Mr. 
Tucker was not conducted in good 
order.

Ohio State University opened this 
fall with the largest attendance in its 
history, the total registration up to 
date pressing near the 2,000 mark. 
From all indications, the year will be 
a most prosperous one and Delta U. 
is sharing in the general prosperity. 

All of our last year's undergrad- 
uates, with the exception of one, are 
back in school, thus giving us a good 
nucleus to start the year's work. The 
rushing here this year was more 
strenuous than ever but this did not 
deter us from getting the men de- 
sired. 

On the evening of October 14th, 
we initiated three men, the initiation 
being followed by a banquet at the 
chapter house. A number of our 
alumni delighted us with their pres- 
ence and everyone had a most enjoy- 
able time. 

We have pledged three more men 
who will be initiated at the beginning 
of the year. 

The football season is at its height 
and so far our team has made an ex- 
cellent showing. On October 28 we 
met Case, our great rival, and before 
a record-breaking crowd the two 
teams battled through two long 
halves without being able to score. 

Schory, '08, the star fullback of 
last year's team, is playing in old- 
time form although he has just re- 
cently recovered from a siege of ty- 
phoid fever. Surface, '07, has been 
playing a steady, consistent game at 
tackle and Barrington. '09, is making 
a good showing at the quarterback 
position. A wealth of material is out 
on the squad and by another year a 
great team should be developed. 

Marker, '04, captain of the 1903 
team and tackle on four Varsity 
teams, has been assisting in the 
coaching of the team in its prepara- 
tion for the coming hard battles. 

Basketball which was such '^ great 
success last year, is already on the 
boom. Several of last year's stars 
will be mls^d, but from the quantity 
of material it is hoped to develop an- 
other championship team. Up to 
date there are over seventy candi- 
dates for the team. Among Uiese 
we have Felger, '06, Dennis, '07, 
Schory, '08, and Barrington, '09.

At Pennsylvania we have started 
the year with every indication of in- 
creased prosperity. All but three of 
last year's chapter are again in col- 
lege and the work of getting started 
is being pushed with great energy. 
In addition to the two initiates which 
we take pleasure in introducing to 
the Fraternity we have one man 
pledged and many others in view. 
Also Bros. Marquissee of Wiscon- 
sin and Hunter of Lehigh who are in 
the University are taking an active 
Interest in the chapter and are a great 
help. 

But the activity of the members of 
the chapter is not confined to internal t 
affairs. We are well represented in 
every branch of the University life. 
Oaley, '06, is manager of the gymna- 
sium team and Scot, '06, is manager 
of the fencing team. Martin, '07, is 
President of the Junior class. Abrams, 
'07, is on the Junior Ball Committee. 
Bennis of last year's football team is 



again with the squad and will prob- 
ably play one of the backfield posi- 
tions. Johnston, '08, is easily first 
substitute quarterback. Bromley 
rowed in the first year Law crew and 
Galey and Bogardus in the Senior col- 
lege crew in the Fall regatta. 

The University has begun the year 
with very bright prospects. The en- 
rollment has increased several hun- 
dred, a larger increase than any other 
Eastern college enjoys. The chances 
for a champion football team were, at 
the outset, all we could ask for. With 
a host of candidates and Mike Mur- 
phy as trainer it looked like a sure 
thing: but accidents, illness and the- 
Faculty have removed so many of the 
best players that it will be hard to get 
through the season without losing a 
game. 

We have enjoyed many visits from 
members of other chapters this fall 
and look forward to many more dur- 
ing the year. Come and see us when- 
ever in Philadelphia.

Murphy, '06, is again holding hid 
position as manager of the Glee club 
with promises of a fine season; and 
Andreae, '09, has been elected first

Liying up to its prize-taking repu- 
tation our chapter captured both the 
first and second Sloan Entrance ex- 
amination prizes through the efforts 
of Bros. Potter and Devan (pledged) 
respectively. This augurs a great 
prize-taking season. 

Bro. Besson, '07, has been chosen 
editor of the college annual, "The 
Scarlet Letter," and Bro. Harman- 
Ashley, '09, Is one of the reporters 
for the "Targum." 

A Pan-Helenic council has recently 
been organized at Rutgers, of which 
Kain, '06, has been elected president. 
We are hoping for great things from 
this council of the Greeks. 

Our entire chapter was greatly 
pleased at the reports brought back 
from the convention by its delegates 
Bros. Fales, '06. and Gies, '07, par- 
ticularly with the admission of the 
new chapter at IlUnols into our fra- 
ternal bonds. 

We wish the best of success to all 
the chapters and trust that they will 
be as prosperous this year as we hope 
to be.

Delta Upsilon at Stanford is Just 
now at its busiest time of the whole 
year. The annual football game be- 
tween Stanford and California is less 
than two weeks away. Preparations 
are being made to entertain the many 
visitors we expect at this, the first 
intercollegiate football game to be 
played on the Stanford Campus. We 
expect all of the California Chapter 
and all of the alumni of Delta ifpsi- 
lon in this part of the country to be 
with us on the day of the '*Blg 
Game." The annual banquet of the 
California Delta Upsilon club is to 
be held in our chapter house on the 
evening before the game. 

Football practice, rehearsals for 
the Football Show, Olee and Mandolin 
clubs, Sophomore-Freshman debate. 
Competition for the Bonnheim Dis- 
sertation, management of the pro- 
gram for the football game, fall train- 
ing on the track, and the Convention 
at Utica are some of the things 
which, added to the regular college 
work, are keeping the members of 
Delta Upsilon busy. 

Our initiates have taken hold 
quickly of our principle of having 
"every man in something." Three 
of them were on the freshman foot- 
ball squad, and the fourth is prepar- 
ing for the Sophomore-Freshman de- 
bate. 

The University is nearing the end 
of what has been aptly called the 
"Stone Age." A few weeks will see 
the completion of the stone work on 
the new Library building, which 
marks tiie fulflllment of the arehi-

by Its founders. Our new football 
field Is nearly completed. The bleach- 
ers, bailt in the shape of a long U 
and rising to a height of sixty feet, 
are to seat 16,000. 

We are anxiously awaiting the re-

on the many important matterfi 
brought before it.

The advent of winter finds the 
Swarthmore Chapter prosperous and 
happy. Last springes elections brought 
us several official honors as follows: 
Palmer, '06, president of the A. A. 
and basketball captain; Perkins, '06, 
lacrosse and track manager; Henrie, 
'07, assistant basketball manager and 
track captain. 

At Commencement, Bro. Rob- 
inson, '05, *PK was awarded the gold 
medal for scholarship and character, 
while Bro. aJckson, '05, was Class 
Day Presenter. 

So far this fall, the football team 
has been very successful, three of the 
four games played having been vic- 
tories. Penn. alone has beaten us, 
by the score of 11-4. Perkins, '06. 
is our only representative on the 
team this year, as Lamb, '06, is not 
playing on account of his health. 

Fall lacrosse practice has been go- 
ing on in earnest, and several of the 
brothers have been making a good 
showing. Price, Lamb, O. L. Broom- 
ell, Bastwick, Booth, Darlington and 
D'Olier were members of the varsity 
team which defeated Pennsylvania in 
a practice game on October 27. 

In the musical clubs this fall we 
have Palmer, Price, Darlington and 
D'Olier on the Glee Club and Palmer 
and Booth on the Mandolin club. The 
prospects are very bright in this line, 
and we hope to have some good en- 
tertainments. 

The college has obtained the best 
talent for the Lecture Course this 
year, and it promises to be even more 
successful than last year. The open- 
ing lecture was delivered at October 
18 by Rev. Newell D wight Hillis. His 



subject was Oliver Cromwell, and 
the talk was of exceptional interest. 

The Athletic Association has erect- 
ed a large new grand-stand on Whit- 
tier Field. 

We were very glad to receive visits 
from Bro. Goldwin Goldsmith and 
from Bros. Telchert and Arm- 
strong of Calffomia, on their way to 
the Convention. We are also for- 
tunate In having Bro. Harris, '02^ 
living in Swarthmore. 

Our annual banquet will be held at 
the Bellevue-Stratford, Philadelphia, 
on December 9.

The University opens with an enter- 
ing class estimated at between eleven 
and twelve hundred and in all the 
University about twenty-eight hun- 
dred. This Is about three hundred In 
advance of the attendance of last 
year. The entering class seems to be 
a very strong one, having shown up 
well in the two events in which they 
have had a chance, the interclass 
meet which they won with thirty-six 
points, and on the football squad 
where six or seven freshmen are play- 
ing regular positions on the first team 
and as many more are on the squad. 
By report they also bring in many 
star men for the basketball team 
which, since it does not lose one of 



last year's star team, should take a 
position in inter-collegiate b&sketball 
even in advance of that of last year. 
Also report has it that the entering 
class will materially strengthen the 
baseball team in the Spring and many 
responded to the call of Capt. Ruther- 
ford a few days since. Our football 
team seems to be the strongest we 
have ever had as they have won all 
the games played so far this year with 
the exception of the Tale game. Over 
three hundred students of the Uni- 
versity attended the game held with 
Hamilton college at Clinton and had 
a most enjoyable time. 

The Flour rush and Salt rush were 
hold as usual and furnished the same 
amusement to the spectators and the 
same exhibition of class spirit as 
heretofore, the former being won by 
the freshmen and the latter by the 
sophomores. The sophomore recep- 
tion to the freshmen was held Sep- 
tember 21 and the T. M. C. A. recep- 
tion to all the University on Sep- 
tember 23, both proving very enjoy- 
able and successful, the social part 
of the latter being under the direc- 
tion of Rice, '07, chairman of the 
Social Committee. 

Work on all four of our new build- 
ings. Stadium, Library, Hall of Nat-

The Chapter held the first part of 
its initiation October 18 at the house 
and the formal initiation October 20 
at the Tates Hotel, where nearly fifty 
gathered around the banquet table 
to hear the toast list called for by 
Toastmaster Murdock, '85, and to 
meet the eight initiates. Eighteen 
of the old men returned this Fall, 
who with the new men making a 
chapter of twenty-six, give promise of 
a successful year.

TECHNOLOGY. 

Active membership, 19. 

At the time of this writing it has 
only been four weeks since the term 
commenced and affairs at Technology 
are just getting in good running or- 
der. 

We start the year nineteen strong, 
fifteen of this number living at the 
house. This Is by far the largest 
number with which we have started 
the opening term for some time, and 
needless to say we can afford to take 
our time in selecting new men. 

The entering class is smaller in 
numbers than usual this year. How- 
ever, four promising men have been 
pledged so far. 

Bros. Merryweather, '04, and Tow- 
er, '06, are with us again, taking 
graduate work. 

Athletics, although always very 
limited at Technology, are still fur- 
ther handicapped by the loss of our 
gymnasium. A new one Is in process 
of construction, but is still several 
months from completion. 

Barnes, '08, was the first to repre- 
sent Technology in the recent goli 
championship tournament, in which 
he handily defeated Mr. Gregory of 
Williams and Mr. Mayer of Brown. 

Barnes, '08, Is holding down his 
old position as halfback on the 1908

Football Is now the all-absorbing 
topic at the University and Toronto 
is ably upholding her past record, 
having won all three games so far 
and being universally recognized as 
the champions of the Canadian Inter- 
collegiate Rugby Football union, 
which now Includes Ottawa College 
as well as McOlU and Queen's Uni- 
versities. The second team has good 
prospects of winning the Intermedi- 
ate championship, but the Thirds 
have been outclassed in their league. 
Delta Upsilon is represented by Mc- 
pherson, '07, who holds the position 
of manager and acting captain and 
plays a star game on the half line of 
the first team. Toms, '07, is spare 
man on the first team, and Hart, '06, 
and MacCurdy, '08, are on the third 
team. 

The most Important event In our 
local Greek world was the re-estab- 
llshment of a chapter of Kappa Al-

which the charter was granted has 
had a local existence for several years 
as the Delta Theta Sorority. 

Delta Upsilon has obtained her us- 
ual number of prominent appoint- 
ments this fall. Loudon, '05, was 
elected by acclamation to the presi- 
dency of the Engineering Society, the 
most coveted honor in the School of 
Science and one which has never be- 
fore fallen to the lot of a fraternity 
man on account of the strong antl-

fraternity spirit in the school. Scul- 
ly, '06. is sporting editor of "Varsity," 
and chairman of the Arts Dance com- 
mittee. Clark, '06, is Secretary of the 
Tennis club. MacCurdy, '08, and 
Oallie, '08, are president and critic 
respectively of their Class executive. 

We all enjoyed the visit of Bros. 
Anderson and Tunison of Nebraska 
on their way to the convention. 

All indications point to the mosc 
successful year in the history of Delia 
Upsilon in Toronto. The opening of 
our University is later than at moat 
American Universities and our rush- 
ing methods are slower. So, as yet, 
we have only initiated two men. 
Still, we have five or six more ex- 
cellent men in view with good pros- 
pects of securing them.

With the opening of college in Sei^ 
tember the largeet entering class in 
the history of the college was en- 
rolled. The class contained much 
good fraternity material, but our task 
of filling the vacant places was by 
no means an easy one. Besides the 
loss by graduation, seven of the 
brothers, who were expected back, 
did not return to college. However, 
by hard work and co-operation by the 
remaining active members we pledg- 
ed ten men, who, we believe, have ail 
the qualification of typical Delta U*ri. 

This year the much talked of Com- 
mons Dining club is being given a 
trial. All the men of the college aVft 
brought together three times a day 
and, while it is early for predictions, 
the scheme bids fair to be a great in- 
centive to college spirit. 

The football outlook this year at 
Tufts is very bright, the team having 
won two games by large scores and 
lost only to the strong West Point 
team. Delta Upsilon is well repre- 
sented with Smith, '06, as fullback; 
Hull, '06, center; Lewis, '07, half- 
back, and Mulvey, '07, and Flint,. 
'07, substitute ends. Boyd, '08, Co-

college, and his loss is sincerely 
mourned. 

The annual initiation took place on

South College, where there have been 
interior improvements. A large swim- 
ming tank is being constructed in La- 
sell gymnasium, and the locker rooms 
have been remodeled. A baseball 
«age is being constructed on Weston 
Field. The new Phi Delta Theta

crease of 11 from last year. 

The end of the rushing season 
found us with six new men, a sopho- 
more and five freshmen. We feel 
that these new members will do much 
to strengthen our chapter, and sev- 
eral are already showing up well in 
various college activities. The an- 
nual initiation banquet was held at 
the chapter house October 13. Guests 
of the evening were Dr. J. Q. Brough- 
ton, '89, president of the board of 
fraternity trustees, Professor, Henry 
D. Wild, '88, of the college faculty, 
and Senator William A. Bums, '97, 
of Pittsfield. At a meeting of the 
board of fraternity trustees held the 
same evening, consid)erable money 
was voted for the re-painting of the 
chapter house, and various interior 
improvements. Bro. John H. 
Burke, '84, was elected member of 
the board to fill a vacancy caused by 
the resignation of Bro. O. H. 
Flint, '86. who has served faithfully 
for several years. 

Bros. Nomer, '06, and Cramer, 
'07, made the college choir at the fall 
trials, and Bro. Nomer is a mem- 
ber of the double quartette of the 
glee club. 

Bro. Barlow, '06, was a member 
of the committee to arrange for the 
senior Hallowe'en celebration. 

Bro. Nomer, '06, is vice-presi- 
dent of the Adelphic Debating Union, 
including Dartmouth, Welseyan and 
Williams. He is vice-president of the 
Philologian debating society, and cap- 
tain of the Williams-Wesleyan de- 
bating team. 

Bros. Conover, '07, Cramer, '07, 
and Bargfrede, '09, are playing sub- 
stutite positions on the varsity eleven. 
Bro. Williams, '09, is playing left 
half back on the Freshman football 
team this fall. 

Bro. Fenno, '08, won a place 
in the 440-yard dash in the Sopho- 
more-Freshman track meet this fall.

The prospects for the coming year 
aeem very favorable, although the loss 
of many old men will be felt. One 
of the most vital questions of our 
chapter at present is that of our new 
house. During a recent meeting of 
stockholders, held here, definite steps 
were taken in regard to the buildiftg 
of our new home within the coming 
year. 

Any interest taken by alumni in an 
active chapter is helpful. At our an- 
nual banquet held on the twenty-sec- 
ond of this month we were honored 
with the presence of nineteen ola 
Wisconsin men. Michigan, Chicago 
and Minnesota also were represented, 
Chicago responding to a toast. 

We have initiated four freshmen 
and have three others pledged, Anson 
WiUard, John W. Balch and Alonzo 
B. Ordway, all of Marshalltown, 
Iowa. Wiliard is out with very good 
chances for making the freshmen 
crew. 



On the college publication we have 
Hetzel, '06, business manager of 
"The Sphinx," and Brown, '08, socie- 
ty editor of "The Cardinal." On musi- 
cal organizations, Parker, '06, is lead- 
er of the Mandolin club, of which 
Melcher, '08, is also a member; 
Bryan, '08, is on the Glee club, and 
Volkmann, '07, is on the University 
band. Karrow, '08, is a member of 
Athenae; Hetzel, '06, a member of 
Hesperia, and Cole, '06, a member 
of Philomathia. Cole and Volkmann 
are members of the Commercial club. 
Bishop, '06, is president of the Ca- 
ducous, the Pre-medic society. Het- 
zel, '06, and Johnson, '07, are mem- 
bers of the junior and senior society. 
Monastics. Hetzel is a member of 
the senior honorary society. Iron 
Cross, and is also vice-president of 
the Edwin Booth Dramatic club. 
Johnson is on the "Badger" board 
and Volkmann is chairman of the 
Junior Prom finance committee. 

In interfraternity athletics our 
prospects are very bright. We have 
three of the last years winning four- 
man relay team and also every one 
of our winning six-man team of last 
year. We have considerable good 
material for baseball this year and 
are expecting excellent results. Par- 
ker, '06, is president of the inter- 
fraternity baseball league. We ex- 
pect Van Derzee, '08, to figure in the 
broad Jump, and Barr, '08, in the 
hurdles this year. Hetzel is sub. lef i 
tackle on the football squad. 

By the acquisition of our freshmen 
this year we think we not only have 
benefitted our chapter but the fra- 
ternity at large and with their aid 
we hope for a sucessful year.

OUR NEW CHAPTER AT ILLINOIS. 

By William Clay Smoot, Northwestern, '07. 

THE INSTALLATION. 
"IXZELL, we put them through. Despite the unfavorable weather and 
^ ^ the scarcity of old Delta U's the Illinois Chapter was installed in 
fine style. Brother Thornton B. Penfield presided at the installation, 
which was held at the Elks' Auditorium in Champaign. After the song of 
renewal was sung and the invocation by Brother Wells, the cliairman in 
his quiet but impressive manner administered the preliminary pledge to 
/he brothers-elect. 

Brother F. T. Hughes, Chicago, '06, in the absence of Brother Bes- 
tor was called on to deliver the charge. His speech was no attempt at ora- 
tory, but a plaint heart-to-heart talk on Delta Upsilon and its advantages. 
In a concise and earnest manner he told of the side of Delta Upsilon now 
opened for the first time to the new brothers — that of responsibility. He 
brought out clearly tlie necessity of concerted effort in order to maintain 
the high ideals of the fraternity. 

When Brother Hughes concluded Brother Penfield proceeded with 
the initiation ceremony and spoke the words that made the K K boys 
members of Delta Upsilon. After a short admonition as to tlieir careful 
keeping the charter and constitution were turned over to Brother Frost, 
* the president of the Illinois Chapter. The pins were then placed on the 

new members and the certificates presented, after which the Fraternity 
ode was sung and the service concluded with general congratulations. 

Then all gave the yells and throwing our coats over our shoulders, 
went over to the Beardsley Hotel where the banquet had been prepared. 

THE BANQUET. 

T WISH I had adequate space and ability to tell you of the time we had 
■* over tliere. In the center of the dining room was a great centerpiece 
of yellow roses and living ferns draped with blue ribbons. The tables 
were strewn with small flowers in the colors of the fraternity, making a 
very pretty and original eflFect. We didn't waste much time, however, in 
viewing the scene for we were all struck with one idea, namely to eat ; and 
say, you missed it. We ate and we sang and then we reversed the order 



88 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

and tried it all over again. And I mustn't forget the orchestra that played 
the fraternity songs as often as we asked them and that wasn't a few. 

When course after course had been brought until even Brother Wade 
was satisfied, Brother Gray, Illinois, '04, acting as toastmaster, called us 
to order and announced the first course of the intellectual feast in the per- 
son of Brother F. E. Rightor, Illinois, '03, to whose determination and 
ability of organization, the Illinois chapter probably owes her charter. 
Responding to the toast "Illinois and the K K Qub," he told briefly the 
early history of their organization struggles and triumphs. Qosing he 
told of their joy in becoming members of Delta Upsilon and finally re- 
marked amid the applause of his old K K brothers that *'if Delta Upsilon 
remained as fine as K K had been it would be by far the finest buncli in 
school." 

The toastmaster then introduced Brother F. T. Hughes, Chicago, '06, 
who spoke for a few moments on "Delta Upsilon In Illinois." After tell- 
ing of the establishment of the older chapters in Illinois and of tlieir 
growth he tendered the congratulations of the Chicago and Northwestern 
chapters and welcomed the newest member into the state and fraternity. 
Qosing Brother Hughes said : "And I see no reason why, with the North- 
western and Chicago chapters, and our strong alumni association of three 
hundred members, together with this our baby but sturdy chapter, wc can- 
not put and keep Delta U. in Illinois in the lead." 

Brother Newton A. Wells, Syraciise, 'yy, one of the men who has 
been most influential in bringing Delta U. to Illinois spoke on "The 
University of Illinois." He told us of its phenomenal growth and of its 
even greater prospects for the future. Then in a well arranged alphabeti- 
cal poem he told us of the personages and places connected with the Uni- 
versity. He then started a whirlwind of enthusiasm by subscribing $100 
towards a permanent sinking fund for the chapter and before this had 
subsided $3,900 had been subscribed, all of which made some of the older 
men look thoughtful and wonder if their own chapters would display such 
enthusiasm and earnest desire for the welfare of Delta Upsilon as this, our 
youngest chapter, had shown. 

Brother Gray now introduced the real serious course of the evening, 
Brother Penfield, who told us of the "Executive Council." He first con- 
gratulated them in behalf of the Council and said tliey were happy in the 
birth of this new baby in the family, one so lusty and vigorous and one 
with such a bright future. He then complimented them on their hard 
work and gave a timely warning against letting a desire to be prosperous 
unbalance their judgment of men and he sought them to uphold rigorous- 
ly and zealously, the standard upheld so successfully for so many years. 
He then explained carefully and fully the position of the Executive Coun- 
cil, its work, its hopes, its aims, its helping power and the need of co- 



A SKETCH OF THE KK CLUB 89 

operation for the successful termination of its plans. Concluding he said in 
part "You are now caught up, keep striving. Don't let or make Delta 
Upsilon carry you. We are all still racing. Our ideal is siill ahead. Your 
goal should be the ultimate satisfaction of usefulncis and our usefulness 
has been in the past in our motto, a square and manly deal for all. We feel 
you are going to add strength to us and will require much of you, but are 
confident you will line up to your opportunities, and that we will be proud 
of you." 

After this Brother Turner, Illinois, '03, gave a rendition of that 
laughable piece "Schneider's Rhyme." Brother GDrrigan gave us tlie 
dessert in the form of the niunerous telegrams and letters of congratula- 
tions. As it was now in the wee, sma' hours of the morning we adjourned, 
all smiling, the new men because of their emblems and their new standing 
in general and we old men just simply from the joy of seeing so many 
fine new Delta U's. 

"Say, aren't you sorry you didn't go ?"

A SKETCH OF THE KK CLUB- 

By W. H. Marsh, '05, and Edward Corrigan, '06. 

AT THE University of Illinois during the year 1901-1902 a crowd of 
some ten or a dozen fellows, close friends and congenial spirits, 
were together much of the time, and though no rig^d organization existed, 
there was a loyalty of spirit to one another seldom seen outside of frater- 



90 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

nity groups. They called themselves by an eerie name now forgotten save 
by a few ; meetings and social sessions were held, but there was no regu- 
larity in their system. As an organized body they did notliing, so quite 
naturally received no recognition as such. 

Early the following year practically the same men met, and in order 
to foster the friendship thus started, as well as to gain strength by united 
effort, decided to organize under rigid rules. The constitution and ritual 
were drafted setting forth insignia and rulings. The old name was dis- 
carded as inappropriate and another cliosen to replace it; so September, 
1902, dates the real birth of KK. 

During this year we gave dances, smokers, banquets, etc., and 
were a factor politically as shown by the way we appropriated the base- 
ball managership and other offices we wanted. We had baseball manager, 
ticket sellers, and gateman, a man on the Illio Board and Senior Ball 
Committee besides several other minor offices. We talked national char- 
ter somewhat, but only among ourselves. In fact our growth was ration- 
al and steady. We did not spring up over night, obtain for tlie asking a 
charter from a mushroom fraternity, get a bull pup and a meerscliaum 
pipe, and assume an air of blas^ arrogance. We had been under organ- 
ization two years before the public knew what we were striving for. All 
through the year 1902-03 we were striving to strengthen ourselves in- 
ternally, were perfecting the constitution and ritual, and were taking in 
new and strong men. By this time we were recognized and reckoned on 
as a strong body. 

The year 1903- 1904 was full of interest to all KK's. We started a 
clubhouse and made a success of it. We had men in athletics, in the Fac- 
ulty, in literary pursuits, and in politics. We began to talk of our alumni. 

At the beginning of the year 1903-04 the question of a charter from 
a national fraternity came up again. E. R. Hayhurst, '03, was a personal 
friend of some of the members of Delta Upsilon at Northwestern who 
had expressed a desire to see a chapter of their fraternity at Illinois. 
Stuebe, '03, also had friends in the fraternity. Hence, in looking over the 
fraternity field these facts led us to examine Delta Upsilon with particular 
interest, and the high standing and splendid principles of Delta Upsilon 
caused the choice of this fraternity to be made. 

This decision reached, an active campaign was begfun. Brother Hay- 
hurst and Dr. Wade were sent to the New York convention to present a 
formal petition for a charter. Our petition was held over and came up 
again at the Chicago convention. Following the usual conservative policy 
our petition was again held over for further consideration. We were dis- 
appointed but not discouraged. We went on strengthening ourselves in 
every possible way. A new house was arranged for and built according 
to the plans of two of our alumni. Last fall about twenty old men re-

turned, and we immediately began to prepare for the Utica Convention. 
The rest is well known. Our period of waiting had been one of develop- 
ment. We have gained our goal by perseverance and work. It came to 
us only after much effort, and we therefore appreciate it all the more 
highly. 

This in short is the story of KK at Illinois. It has passed, and in 
its stead is the Illinois Chapter of Delta Upsilon. KK has been erased 
from our door, and a beautiful Delta Upsilon monogram has been put in 
its place. Within our house, however, gathers the same group of men, 
bums the same fraternal spirit of loyalty and justice, and exist the same 
broad, op>en, manly principles that were KK and are now Delta Upsilon.

THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 

By Edward Corrigan, Illinois, '06. 

THE University of Illinois is situated in Champaign County in the 
eastern central part of the state, betv^'een the cities of Champaign 
and Urbana, and within the corporate limits of the latter. It is 128 
miles south of Chicago, at the junction of the Illinois Central, the Big 
Four, and the Wabash railroads. The country around is a rich and 
prosperous argicultural region. The cities of Champaign and Urbana 
have, together, a population of about 17,000. 

The University was founded upon the national land grant Act of 
1862. Its support, therefore, is derived from the interest on its land 
endowment, from the national government, and other appropriations. 
These sources give an annual income of about $537,000. 

The grounds consist of 850 acres with 27 University buildings. The 
estimated total value of University property is about $3,500,000. 

In the matter of appropriations from the state legislature, our Uni- 
versity has been most fortunate. In 190 1 the general appropriation was 
an even million. In 1903 this amount was increased by $267,000, and 
in 1905 the appropriation was $1,518,535. 

To secure the location of the University several counties entered 
into competition by proposing to donate to its use specified sums of money 
or its equivalent. Champaign County offered a large brick building 
in the suburbs of Urbana erected for a seminary, and almost completed, 
about 1,000 acres of land, and $100,000 in county bonds. To this the 
Illinois Central added $50,000 in freight. 

The institution was incorporated February 27, 1867, under the name 
of the Illinois Industrial University, and placed under the control of a 
Board of Trustees, composed of the Governor, the State Superintendent 
of Public Instruction, and the President of the State Board of Agricul- 
ture, as ex-officio members, and 28 citizens appointed by the governor. 

In 1873 the Board of Trustees was reorganized, the number of 
appointed members being reduced to nine, and the ex-officio members 
to two, the Governor and the President of the State Board of Agriculture. 
In 1887 a law was passed making membership elective at a general 
state election, and restoring the State Superintendent as an ex-officio 
member. There are, therefore, now three ex-officio members and nine 
elective members. Since 1873 the President of the Board has been 



94 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

chosen by the members from among their own number for a term of 
one year. 

The University was opened to students March 2, 1868. The number 
of students enrolled at that time was about fifty and the Faculty con- 
sisted of the Regent and tlirce professors. During the first term another 
instructor was added and the number of students increased to yy, all 
young men. 

By a vote March 9, 1870, the Trustees admitted women as students. 
During tlie year 1870-71, twenty- four availed themselves of this privilege. 
Since that time thev have constituted from one-sixth to one-fifth of tlie 
total number of students. 

In 1877 th^ sXsXt legislature gave the University the power to confer 
degrees and issue diplomas. Previous to that time certificates were given. 

In 1885 the legislature changed the name of the institution to the 
"University of Illinois." It also passed a bill transferring the Stite 
laboratory of Natural History from the State Normal University to the 
University of Illinois. This laboratory was created by law for the pur- 
pose of making a natural history survey of the state, the results of which 
would be published in a series of bulletins and reports, and for the allied 
purpose of furnishing specimens illustrative of the flora and fauna of 
the state to the public schools and to the state museums. A large amount 
of material has been collected, and extended publications have been 
made in both the forms mentioned above. 

Other additions have been made as follows: 

May I, 1896, the Chicago College of Pharmacy founded in 1859, 
became the School of Pharmacy of the University of Illinois. It is 
located at Michigan Boulevard and Twelfth Street, Qiicago. 

The School of Law was added in 1896. This was changed to the 
College of Law in 1900. At first it offered a two year course, but in 1897, 
in order to conform with the requirements for admission to the bar, it 
was made a three year course. 

The College of Physicians and Surgeons located at 813 West Harri- 
son Street, Chicago, became a part of the University in 1897. The same 
year the State Library School was opened in connection with tlie Uni- 
versity at Urbana. 

In 1901 a School of Dentistry was opened in connection witli the 
College of Medicine. This is also situated in Chicago. 

On the whole, the history of the University has been one of steady 
growth and advancement. From the humble beginning in 186S, when 
fifty students enrolled, we have grown until now we number about 4,000. 
Courses are offered in almost every branch of study except theology. 
Our Faailty numbers 411 which gives an average of one instructor to 
ten students. 



THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 95 

The entrance requirements have been raised, until now it requires 
42 high school credits — a full four years' course — to gain admission to 
the University. 

Our campus is unsurpassed in the West. The buildings are prac- 
tically all new, and well cared for. Of these the one which attracts die 
most attention is the Library. It is built of brown stone, and faces a 
sloping lawn which leads down to Green street, one of the main avenues 
of the Twin Cities. Another new building is the Women's Building. 
This is colonial in style and presents a very attractive appearance. 
Engineering Hall, the Gymnasium, Shops, etc., are all new and well 
equipped. 

The fraternities represented here have strong organizations. In all 
there are now thirteen national fraternities : Sigma Qii, Delta Tau Delta, 
Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Thcta, Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Gamma Delta, 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Beta Theta Pi, Sigma Nu, Phi Kappa Sigma, Phi 
Kappa Psi, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and Delta Upsilon. The local fraterni- 
ties number four, Aztec, Pi Theta, Comus and Oax. Two of these Pi 
Theta and Aztec, are petitioning national fraternities, namely, Alpha 
Delta Phi, and Psi Upsilon. At present about fourteen per cent, of the 
men are in fraternities. 

Five sororities are represented. Kappa Alpha Theta, Pi Beta Phi, 
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Chi Omega, and Chi Omega. A local body, 
the Zeta Nu Club, is petitioning Delta Gamma. 

The University of Illinois is still in its infancy. Our traditions are 
not yet hallowed by age. We look to the future rather than to the past 
But are we not justified in looking to the future of this great University? 
Back of it stands the Great Prairie State of Illinois, whose people are 
turning more and more to their state university. They are sparing no 
expense to make this University a fitting educational center of a great 
state. They are doing more than this. They are sending here what is 
more precious than wealth, they are sending here their sons and daughters 
to receive that training which will enable them to become noble and useful 
citizens of this great commonwealth. 

As I said we are lacking in tradition. Our "Fair Harvard" and our 
"Old Nassau" are yet unwritten. In college spirit and loyalty to our 
University, however, we are not lacking. To us the name "Illinois" is 
sacred in a twofold sense. It stands for our state, which was well 
named from "The River of Men." It also stands for our Alma Mater, 
our University, whose memories and teachings we sliall always cherish. 

"There are other skies as blue. 
Still my heart is ever true. 
To my own, my Illinois." 



96 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

THE REAL FOUNDER OF ILLINOIS A DELTA U. 

T N granting charters for chapters of Delta Upsilon in Ohio State Uni- 
■* versity and the University of Illinois, the fraternity is taking a logical 
step. Both of these universities are the result of the "Morrill Act" of 
1862. Senator Justin S. Morrill, of Vermont, in 1862, introduced into 
congress a bill providing that the United States donate to each state 
an amount of scrip for public land aggregating 30,000 acres for each 
senator and member of the house of representatives, to be used in the 
endowment of institutions for higher learning. The bill was passed, and 
as a result of the law many state universities were founded. Among these 
were Illinois and Ohio State. 

Senator Morrill was an honorary member of the Middlebury chapter. 
He was president of the convention held at Middlebury in 1878, and 
took an active interest in the fraternity. 

FRATERNITY RELATIONS AT ILLINOIS 
From the Phi Kappa Psi Shield, 

PP RATERNITY relations are probably more cordial and pleasant 
^ here than in any other institution in the West. The fraternity 
houses are all close together and the fellows visit back and forth more 
than a little, have dancing clubs together, play spirited fraternity base- 
ball games, and have an excellent bowling league. Fraternity material 
is so plentiful that tlie rushing season is comparatively tame, and thus the 
largest chance of bitter fraternity feeling is minimized. The character- 
istic of an Illinois fraternity man is that he knows how to treat other 
fraternity men right, and he never lets an opportunity pass to do any- 
thing he can for him. The selfish, narrow view of fraternity life is 
almost an unknown factor, and every man works for the good of his 
fellow, and for the "orange and blue.' 



Our Emblems 

Wearing the blue-and-gold, bearing it through life's journey. 
Proudly as knight of old wore the guerdon of love in the tourney; 
Holding the standard high bearing the gold and blue. 
Justice and truth and the honor of youth are the emblems of Delta U. 



May be sung to the air of choras of "Somebody Has My Heart."

CHARLES EVANS HUGHES A NATIONAL FIGURE. 

NEWSPAPER COMMENT. 

**nPHE biggest man in New York today is undoubtedly Charles E. 
•*" Hughes." With these words the Boston Herald begins an article 
which has the same words spread across the page as headlines. An outline 
of Brother Hughes's life was given in a recent number of the Quarterly. 
In this we quote from prominent newspapers showing public opinion 
of the man who has probed the life insurance business to the very bottom 
and caused the reorganization of the big New York companies and a 
general housecleaning throughout the business. 

THE BIGGEST BAAN IN NEW YORK. 
From the Boston Herald. 

np HE biggest man in New York today is undoubtedly Charles E. 
^ Hughes. A year ago, outside the immediate circle of his friends 
and business acquaintances, his name was scarcely known. Today he 
is known to every insurance policyholder in this country and abroad as 
the man who is mercilessly probing to the muddy bottom the insurance 
scandals. 

When, last August, it was announced that Charles E. Hughes and 
James McKeene had been selected to conduct the legal work of the legis- 
lative committee's investigation of the life insurance companies, New 
York and the country at large asked, "Who is Hughes?" 

The papers announced that he came from Glens Falls, was a graduate 
of Brown, was for a few years professor of law at Cornell University, 
and was then in practice in New York. That was all they knew of the 
man. There was no inkling there that the man was gifted with a brain 
that could master, and hold, that complex mass of figures brought out 
day after day; that out of cliaos could bring order; who was impartial 
but persistent — oh, how persistent! — who was apparently indefatigable. 

One after another the great brains of tlie country have set themselves 
against him, and have retired worsted. Day after day men have looked 
and marvelled at the man who has met them clearly, coolly, doggedly, 
with energy undiminished. He has established a high-water mark for 
the art of cross-examination. 

The task he set for himself was a tremendous one. He resovlcd to 
do away with the skilled accountants at the start, and trust entirely to 
his own examination of the accounts. He subpoenaed full statements of 
all the syndicate and "joint account*' transactions during the last lo years 
of the companies to be examined, and over these he set himself, to spend 
hours of time. 



98 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

He studied these formal records night after night, and primed witfi 
facts, he began on his witnesses. What he wanted was more facts. Given 
a certain transaction, he wished to follow it from the beginning to the end. 
And he had a tortutous path to follow, one that would have bothered the 
most skilled accountant. 

But hour after hour he stood before the magnates of Wall street, 
and put to them an endless stream of unimpassioned questions. He did 
not ask them why they did this or that, but just what they did. Relent- 
lessly, quietly, he pounded away, and, whatever was brought out, went 
on serenely, leaving the witness unable to tell whether he had been scored 
against or not. 

He never forgets, never becomes confused, never becomes ruffled. 
He appears as cold-blooded as the logic he uses. He reduces everything 
to facts — to mathematical certainties. 

*nrHERE IS NO WIZARDRY IN IT.^ 

From an editorial in McClure's Magazine. 

T T is not often that this country is treated to a more brilliant and stimu- 
'■' lating intellectual performance than that of Lawyer Hughes of New 
York City — ripping the lid off the three great Life Insurance companies in 
his state. As for the eflFectiveness of his work, it is not too mudi to say 
that if it ceased now and no legislative action followed, Mr. Hughes 
would have rendered the country substantial and lasting service. 

To begin with, it is no small thing to have rehabilitated the legislative 
inquiry as an effective method of obtaining information to which the 
people have a right and which they need in order to make proper laws. 
* * * It has been much oftener ignorance and mental incapacity than 
bad faith, which has crippled our legislative inquiries. Mr. Hughes 
has demonstrated brilliantly how much useful information an examiner 
can secure if he knows what questions to ask. 

Now the ability to ask telling questions does not come from intuition, 
from cleverness, from enthusiasm for a cause. It comes from knowledge 
of the subject. It is clear that in the present case Mr. Hughes, before 
he began to ask questions, knew what there was to know and from this 
vantage point began his search for information. Every question answered 
necessarily opened fresh avenues of inquiry. He has not only known 
what to ask, he has had the wisdom to stop his examination when necessary 
to digest his new information, to correlate it and so to come at his wit- 
nesses from entirely new and unexpected quarters. The public, watching 
him day after day steadily draw out information which it was supposed 
could not be extracted, has cried out: "This man is a wizard." Mr. 
Hughes well replied in a public letter the other day, "Whatever success 
has been gained is the result of unremitting toil and individual atten- 



CHARLES EVANS HUGHES A NATIONAL FIGURE 99 

tion. There is no wizardry in it." Mr. Hughes's colle^ues at the New 
York bar have been making the same answer for him. Indeed, tliey 
show no surprise at the unusual quality of his work. "That's the way 
Hug:hes always has done things," they say. "He is the real thing. He 
is an indefatigable worker. He always has been. He gets at the vitals 
of a subject — never dallying with unnecessary detjuls. He has a passion 
for mathematics, too — knows what figures mean and how to combine 
and compare them. When the insurance investigation began, the com- 
panies rained down volumes of figures on him. The accountants sent 

KEEPING THE POT BOILINa 



to assist said it was impossible to master the figures in the time at his 
disposal, but Mr. Hughes knew what figures were significant for his 
purpose. He sent the accountants after those. He did not content him- 
self with finding out isolated figures, he sought to correlate figures; he 
did not keep his information concerning each company separate, he com- 
pared the companies; but nobody who knows Hughes is surprised. This 
is the way he always goes at things." 

But Mr. Hughes has brought something more than trained brains 
and a genius for hard work to the insurance investigation. He has 
brought to it a lofty idea of the importance and the dignity of his task 
and a very solemn sense of his own responsibility. In October he was 



74452SA 



100 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

offered by the Republican party the candidacy for Mayor of the City 
of New York — an offer splendid enough to shake most men's sense of 
proportion and of duty — particularly when presented as a duty. Mr. 
Hughes put the offer aside. "In my judgment," he said in his letter of 
declination, "I have no right to accept the nomination. A paramount 
public duty forbids it." 

A striking feature of the inquiry has been Mr, Hughes's fairness. 
He has not gone on the theory that the examiner is an inquisitor, and 
that he is free to bully, to confuse and to sneer at witnesses. He has 
given them every opportunity to present their side, freely accepting their 
written statements — taking all information they offered — giving it full 
consideration. * * * The insurance representatives have had a square 
deal — whatever odium has come upon them is the odium of the truth 
they could not conceal. At the same time the social position, the wealth, 
the reputation of the witness has never effected the rigor of the 
examination. 

This self-control — this indifference to personalities has not sprung 
from coldness of temperament. The press has pictured him as a pale 
and passionless individual, well advanced in years, witli cold, gray eyes 
and an inquisitor's mien, but he is anything but that. He is young for 
his work — forty-three years of age — there is red in his skin, there is 
fullness of lip and a blaze in his eye, even in its quietest phases which 
show him to be a man of fire and enthusiasm, and so his friends will 
tell you he is. His great passion has been for the law. * * * A 
man of such sentiments does not show the reserve and imperturbability 
Mr. Hughes has displayed in tlie insurance investigation from any lack 
of fire and sympathy. He is cool because it is his duty to keep his head ; 
indifferent to the trying position of his witnesses because he is after 
information; and not a little too, because his democracy is too real to be 
troubled by wealth and position. 

The education the public is getting out of the insurance examination 
is similar to what it got out of Mr. Hughes's examination of the Con- 
solidated Gas Company last spring — the examination which first turned 
public attention to him as a man of unusual intelligence and firmness, 
whom it was quite impossible to dazzle, bewilder or evade when he once 
had taken up a subject. 

As for thetonic effect of the inquiry it is already enormous. It 
has already driven home to thousands of young men who are, perhaps, 
standing at the very door of a compromise with honor, the almost inevit- 
able public disgrace which awaits the man who plays with compromise, 
demonstrating again with fearful emphasis the fact that there is ho 
punishment so terrible as public disclosure of evil doing. Quite as 
important, too, is the tonic effect of the revelation of a man like Mr. 



CHARLES EVANS HUGHES A NATIONAL FIGURE loi 

Hughes, willing to give unreservedly of his power to a public cause, 
and, for the sake of prosecuting to the end, refusing one of the great 
honors of public life in the United States. 

HIS CHARACTEEUSnCS-CLEAR, CLEAN, COURAGEOUS. 

From the Brooklyn Eagle, 

A remarkable mental trait of Mr. Hughes is his clearness — ^his lucidity 
— his perspicacity. His is a vigorous mind, quick in its compre- 
hension, firm in its grasp, rapid in its operation, well stored with learning, 
and so disciplined in its training tliat it is the obedient servant of his will. 
It is alive and alert. 

It is quite clear, too, thst he measures all effort by the results 
obtained. To obtain results is to succeed; not to, is to fail. To fail is 
intolerable. He is ambitious, but for personal achievement, not for per- 
sonal aggrandizement. Nor has he political ambitions, as is well attested 
in his prompt declination of the mayoralty nomination. He is far from 
being indifferent to popular applause, but he would rather have his own 
applause, which is rarely bestowed, because he is his own severe critic. 
He does not take himself too seriously, though he is serious minded. 
When it is said that his sense of humor is keen and that of the 
ludicrous active, there seems to be an inconsistency. But there is not 

That Mr. Hughes is a moral man in the sense of clean living, clean 
thinking and scrupulous regard for the rights of others is manifest The 
man is_honest, aggressively, even pugnaciously, honest He is of cour- 
ageous spirit and utterly fearless in following what he believes to be 
the promptings of his duty. Malice seems to be out of his composition. 
Revenge is not a motive power to action — love of truth is a passion. 
And truth in his outlook is the thing that should be revealed, no matter 
what the consequences. 

HOW HUGHES DECLINED THE NOBIHNATION FOR MAYOR* 

From his letter of declination. 

TN my judgment, I have no right to accept the nomination. A para- 
"■• mount public duty forbids it 

It is not necessary to enlarge upon the importance of the insurance 
investigation. That is undisputed. It is dealing with questions vital to 
the interests of millions of our fellow-dtizens throughout the land. It 
presents an opportunity for public service second to none and involves a 
co-relative responsibility. I liave devoted myself unreservedly to this 
work. It commands all my energies. It is imperative that I continue 
in it You have frankly recognized that it must continue unembarrassed 
and with unimpaired efficiency. But it is entirely clear to me that this 
cannot be done if I accept the nomination. 



I02 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

You know how desirous I have been that the investigation should 
not be colored by any suggestion of political motive. Whatever confi- 
dence it has inspired has been due to absolute independence of political 
consideration. 

It is not sufficient to say that an acceptance of this nomination, com- 
ing to me unsought, despite an unequivocal statement of my position, 
would not deflect my course by a hair's breadth, and that I should remain, 
and that you intend that I should remain entirely untrammeled. The 
non-political character of the investigation and its freedom from bias, 
either fear or favor, not only must exist, they must be recognized. I 
cannot permit them, by action of mine, to become matters of debate. 

MONEY GETTING AND SUCCESS. 

From the Chicago News. 

/^HARLES E. HUGHES, the lawyer who has been conducting the 
^^ investigation into the big New York life insurance companies, has 
had as intimate a view of business corruption in high places, perhaps, as it 
has been any man's lot to witness. The lessons he has drawn from this 
unusual and highly instructive experience, therefore, have a peculiar 
value and are well worth noting. Speaking the other evening at tlie 
dinner of an alumni association he said: 

"What we need is a revival of the army of honor. We want to 
hear less of the man who began poor and amassed riches and more about 
the man who lived unsullied, tliough he died poor. We want to change 
the burden of proof. Let every man who has amassed wealth or gained 
office be ready to show a clear balance sheet, if he has got it. 

"We want a baptism of self-respect, so we can stand erect in the 
presence of the almighty dollar." 

• No one will charge Mr. Hughes with being a mere idealist. His 
searching questions during the life insurance investigation have shown 
him to be a hard-headed man, whose views of life are sternly practical 
and with whom sentiment is always guided and controlled by reason. 
He himself, indeed, might be looked upon as a type of "successful man." 
And the fact that such a man raises a warning against the widespread 
and insatiable ambition which has for its object the amassing of riches 
is therefore especially significant. 

A MAN OF TODAY. 

From the Boston Transcript, 

'Tp HE counsel for the Armstrong committee now. investigating life in- 
-■" surance in New York, Mr. Charles E. Hughes, has become a figure 
of national prominence. He subtends an unusually large angle of public 
interest. He has not acquired the largeness of distinction through any 
sensational methods, through any accident of fortune, for we do not 



CHARLES EVANS HUGHES A NATIONAL FIGURE 103 

believe that it was an accident so much as an inspiration that called him 
to the great service that he is now rendering the American people. 

Modesty has been the diaracteristic of his methods. He undertook 
a task of the magnitude and delicacy of which few men, even among 
those who have followed closely the ordering of his work, have any 
adequate conception. Perhaps he did not himself realize how formidable 
was the under^Jdng in which he was engaged until he found himself in 
medias res. But he has not recoiled from any difficulties nor shrunk 
from any responsibilities. It has doubtless been a good thing for him 
as well as for the public It is a kind of work that adds to the growth 
of the men engaged in it, whether it is Folk in Missouri, Weaver in 
Philadelphia, or Jerome or Hughes in New York. The forces of evil 
are fair game and those who have the knightly qualities to conduct an 
effective crusade against them are themselves broadened, quickened, and 
ennobled by the exercise. Men have to wait for opportunities sometimes 
before they can take the true measure even of themselves, and in this 
case the public has learned it as soon as Mr. Hughes himself. 

He is a man of whom the public would like to know much more than 
it does, and so his appearance at a dinner of the University of Rochester 
alumni had special interest for those who attended, and even for 
the less favored who through the reports of the exercises were able to 
get fleeting notes of what was said around the mahogany. In his 
remarks he guarded well his professional line of procedure. He was not 
betrayed into any impropriety of utterance, but he did venture to discuss 
some fundamental principles, the observance of which by the men who 
have had to meet his searching questioning would have made the sensa- 
tional developments of the last few months unnecessary and impossible. 
"I believe," said Mr. Hughes, "in the soundness of American life, 
and yet I know we need an illumination of vision to see the multitude 
who will not bow the knee to greed, nor betray a trust, nor falter in the 
presence of an opportunity for evil. This is a time for a searching of 
hearts ; a time for repentance and resolve, when we need a revival of the 
sense of honor and a better perspective. * ♦ It is a time when we want 
more chivalry, more of the spirit of knighthood, that ♦ ♦ * feels 
a stain like a wound." And he added : "College men are the very ones 
to whom we ought to look for men who will never mistake true man- 
hood." And this man who stands at the focus of the rays in the white 
light that has been shrinking and withering reputations, was once a 
college professor, and never has found another service that pleased him 
so well. But ♦ * ♦ scores of men have forfeited the confidence and 
respect that they enjoyed a year ago, because of his clear, logfical, unflinch- 
ing probing of their business records, whereby he has condemned them 
out of their own mouths. 



EDITORIAL. 

"^TEVER in the history of Delta Upsilon has a chapter been bom into 
our brotherhood under more auspicious circumstances than the oc- 
casion of the initiation and installation of the Illinois Chapter. True to her 
principles, Delta Upsilon has been exceedingly conservative in the granting 
of charters in late years. Our brethren in the University of Illinois have 
worked long and hard to qualify themselves for admission to the frater- 
nity. Patiently and persistently they have filed their applications with suc- 
* ceeding Conventions and at last tlie record of their acliievements, their 
position in the University, and their financial and social condition was 
such that no one in Convention could pick a flaw. The delegation who 
appeared at the recent Convention of Delta Upsilon and made these points 
perfectly clear, and Brother Corrigan in an impassioned appeal captured 
the hearts of all voting delegates, as recorded in the last issue. Illinois 
came into the fraternity amid the hearty congratulations and warm wel- 
comes of all the chapters and a host of the alumni. 

We may well be proud of the baby chapter with her splendid band 
of earnest, thoughtful, far-sighted leaders who command the respect and 
admiration of the student body in the University of Illiilois ; with one of 
the handsomest houses that any chapter in our fraternity can boast ; with 
the unexcelled opportunity for future power and usefulness. Our brothers 
in Illinois are certainly to be congratulated, and even more than they, 
our fraternity is to be congratulated upon tliis addition to our brotherhood ; 
but in the midst of our congratulations let us remind ourselves that this 
is not the end of the way but only the beginning. 

Membership in Delta Upsilon has always meant qualification for 
service. Our fraternity stands for usefulness in the world. We believe 
we have one object in view and in the attainment of that object there is 
work for every member of the fraternity. We predict a place of useful- 
ness and power for the Illinois chapter, and in that inspiring prospect is 
there not a share for each chapter of the fraternity. Shall we not individu- 
ally and severally buckle down to the year's work with a new encourage- 
ment and new feeling of power and strength and new grounds for success 
which will not mean selfish aggrandisement but a greater influence for 
good in college or university and a preparation for a larger usefulness that 
awaits us in the world of work and achievement. 

PpOR the first time in the fraternity's history more than a third of 
^ our living chapters are located in the West The advent of Illinois 
is not more the occasion for congratulation than for reflection. It is at 
once the seal and confirmation of the fact that Delta Upsilon has ceased 
to be sectional. 



EDITORIAL 105 

We knew it before but there may be present need that we emphasize 
it Thirteen of our thirty-seven chapters now lie west of the Pennsyl- 
vania border. Not one new chapter has been established in the New 
England or Middle States since Swarthmore in 1894. All have been 
Canadian or Western chapters. Stanford, California, McGill, Nebraska, 
Toronto, Chicago, Ohio State, Illinois, an impressive octet We have 
today in the West more chapters than any other fraternity of eastern 
origin. 

This western trend of our growth inspires in the fraternity (and 
partiailarly among its eastern members) no fear, no anxiety, nothing but 
pride. It has too long been the common characteristic of eastern fra- 
ternities to sneer at western petitions and resolve with Pecksniffian solem- 
nity that the East was tlie place for them. If this spirit still remains 
as a cardinal principle of eastern fraternities, then Delta Upsilon ceased 
to be an eastern fraternity thirty-seven years ago. 

The western movement of Delta Upsilon has progressed naturally 
without forcing. When there has been hesitation it has oftencr been in 
the West than in the East The true catholic spirit has been shown, a 
spirit that makes for strong enduring plans in any organization. The 
question about any petitioning body has been not "where" but "what" 
We have asked, have the petitioners sought us in sincerity, do they know 
they want us, are they in dead earnest, do they meet our reasonable 
requirements. These are the vital matters in comparison with which 
location, east or west, nortli or south, is of absolutely no consequence. 

A Delta Upsilon conference at Chautauqua is under consideration by 
the Executive Council. Plans are still hazy but will probably be 
ready to announce in the June issue of the Quarterly, should tlie event 
prove as practicable as it seems desirable. If the conference is held, the 
time will be the last of August when a prominent member of the fra- 
ternity will speak before the Assembly one afternoon. The conference 
is likely to center round a meeting of the Executive Council, but fra- 
ternity business will be a comparatively small part of the gathering, which 
will have for its chief aim the fostering of fraternal ties in a more intimate 
way than is possible at our busy conventions. The hiring of one or 
more boarding houses exclusively for members of the fraternity for the 
conference period is among the possibilities and all the usual attractions 
of this famous summer resort will be available. No pleasanter place for 
spending part or the whole of a vacation can be found. 

T T is comparatively easy to preach on the theme of the Kenyon fraternity 
^ hazing tragedy. Several fraternity magazines have already delivered 
sermons on the subject. We think the lesson for Delta Upsilon very 



io6 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

simple. The death of the young freshman serves to clinch and rivet 
the recommendations of the Internal Development Committee against 
horse play. That any initiation tomfoolery in public is contrary to the 
spirit and life of the fraternity goes without saying. To have "fun" 
with an initiate in chapter hall is not much more defensible and not at 
all so when humiliation is involved. To the few cliapters of Delta 
Upsilon that use horse-play even though not on the initiation night, we 
say — cut off this excrescence on the chapter life. If the freshmen need 
to be taught their "place," there is another way to teach them. But 
let their entrance into the fraternity be made with digniy, befitting a new 
relation which will last far beyond the few years of college life. 

A WORD to the chapters. Did you read the editorial "The Campaign 
for Subscribers" in the last issue? Evidently not. Did your sen- 
ior convention delegate do his duty last fall by having a man appointed to 
take up your part in this campaign? Apparently not. He was requested 
to see personally that this was done. What are the results ? The follow- 
ing chapters have reported to Brother Wetherell for duty: IViscotisin, 
Tufts, Middlebury, New York, Amherst, Syracuse and Union— eight in 
all ; less than 25 per cent. 

This work is being done to carry out the plans of the Internal De- 
velopment committee appointed by Convention. It is not being taken up 
by the chapters as it should be — as it must be if the Quarterly is to g^ow 
and be of any real use to the fraternity. 

Since convention, 129 new subscribers have been added to the list 
Of this number 51 were secured by five chapters reporting to Brother 
Wetherell. If the twenty-nine chapters that have not yet responded to this 
call, and the three whose reports are not in yet, should produce the same 
average results, it would mean 320 more, and additions from other sources 
would bring the total up to 500. Not that we must stop there. We must 
keep it up. But in view of the discouraging response of tlie chapters, our 
optimism is fast waning. Do you care anything about it ? 

Delta Upsilon's list of Rhodes Scholars is still growing. With five 
in 1904 we had two more than any other fraternity, irrespective of the 
comparative number of chapters. We reported six in 1905, and have just 
learned that Brother R. E. Bates, Harvard, '05 was appointed from Nova 
Scotia, making seven for last year. And now comes word that Toronto 
Delta U. has again captured the honor. Brother R. C. Reade, Toronto, '05, 
having been appointed this year. The reports of the Delta Upsilon club of 
Oxford University will make interesting reading.

VERMONT NEXT? 

Brothers B. L. Stafford, Middlebury, '01, and Rediield Proctor, Jr., 
Technology, '02, are organizing a Delta Upsilon Club of Vermont, the 
immediate aim of which is to secure a good attendance of local alumni 
at the Middlebury Convention. The Quarterly hopes to have a good 
report of the organization in the June issue. 

THE MONTREAL DELTA UPSILON ALUMNI CLUB. 

The first annual meeting of the club was held in the McGill Chapter 
House on December 2nd, 1905, and the reports submitted were found 
very satisfactory. During the year, ten meetings were held, at which the 
attendance ranged from five to eleven. Six of the meetings were of the 
regular business nature, and four were special : One in January on the 
occasion of the annual banquet of the active chapter; another in April 
when a banquet was tendered to one of our members ; the third in Sep- 
tember when a smoking concert was given by the Alumni club to the 
active chapter, and the fourth was the annual meeting. 



io8 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

The membership was composed of twenty resident, and twenty non- 
resident members. Four resident members were lost during the year 
through removal from Montreal, and two new ones were acquired. 

Financially the receipts were $81.95, and disbursements $70.55, leav- 
ing a balance of $11.40 with which to commence the new year. Twenty 
dollars was paid to the active chapter for use of rooms for meeting pur- 
poses, and $28 to the Delta Upsilon Quarterly for subscriptions. Form- 
al recognition of the club has been obtained from the Delta Upsilon Fra- 
ternity, and everything appears bright for another good year. The officers 
for this year are : President, J. W. Thomas ; First Vice President, Rev. 
John McKay ; Second Vice President, A. R. McMaster ; Secretary-Treas- 
urer, Dr. W. A. Wilkins. 

COLUMBIA ALUMNI ASSCX3ATION OF DELTA UPSILON. 

The association held its annual meeting for election of officers on 
December 11, 1905. Brother O. B. Smith, Jr., declined a re-election and 
Brother Herbert D. Brown, '95, was unanimously elected to the presi- 
dency. His first announcement was that a motion to adjourn was in order, 
whereupon Brother "Doc" Gould called upon Brother "Pat" to disgorge 
some information about the chapter house scheme. Brother Patterson 
produced several trump cards from his sleeve and it developed that he 
had been assisted by Bob Mathews, also a legal light. 

Following the line of Investigator Hughes, "Doc" Gould demanded 
facts, and got them, with the result that his aid in lifting the lid was 
secured. With two lawyers to secure the victim for "Doc" to operate on 
there is no doubt but tliat large, cancerous growths of real money will be 
found and removed. With that accomplished the chapter house plan, 
which has been suffering from arrested gfrowth, will resume normal de- 
velopment. 

The greatest enthusiasm of the evening was evoked by Brother 
Charles L. Eidlitz's declaration that he would turn a large gold brick into 
the "real stuff." 

The investigation of the committee was attended by Brothers L. D. 
White, '87; Charles L. Eidlitz, '88; John Patterson, '92; William Van 
Valzah Hayes, '93 ; H. J. Shaw, '94 ; H. D. Brown, '95 ; Jos. Van Vleck, 
Jr., '96 ; E. W. Gould, '96 ; Goldwin Goldsmith, '96 ; O. B. Smith, Jr., '97 ;

THE DELTA UPSILON CLUB OF NEW YORK. 

The annual meeting of the Delta Upsilon Gub of New York was 
held at the University of Pennsylvania Gub, 124 West Forty-seventh 



THE ALUMNI CLUBS 109 

street, on Tuesday evening, December 19, 1905. About 100 brothers were 
present, and the meeting was marked by enthusiasm and festivity of the 
real Delta Upsilon brand. The chief business of the evening, the election 
of officers for the ensuing year, was soon disposed of, with the following 
result : 

President, Erman J. Ridgway, Northwestern, '91 ; Vice-President, 
Hon. E. M. Bassett, Amherst, '84; Secretary, William J. Norton, Cornell, 
'02; Treasurer, Edgar S. Bloom, Pennsylvania, '95; Historian, Arthur 
C. Perry, New York, '92. 

Executive Committee : W. H. Van Steenburgh, Rutgers, 'yy ; C. L. 
Eidlitz, Columbia, '88; F. M. Crossett, New York, '84; C. P. Blaney, 
Harvard, '90; J. B. Richardson, Williams, '00. 

The meeting had a special significance in that it was held on the 
fortieth anniversary of the founding of the New York Chapter, so that 
Brother Ridgway, who occupied the chair and acted as toastmaster with 
his customary graceful wit, called particularly upon New York men for 
impromptu recitals of chapter reminiscense. Brother William L. Ludlum, 
'68, one of the three charter members present, told of the founding of 
the chapter and of the early struggles. Brother Charles E. Lillis, '07, 
captain of the New York University baseball team, reported on the 
present day activities of the chapter, announcing an active membership of 
thirty-three, and inviting all present to visit the chapter house on the 
Heights and "see for themselves." Brother Charles L. Eidlitz, Columbia, 
'88, whom the president introduced as "New York, '47," gave one of 
his vividly himiorous speeches and pledged his energy to service on 
the Executive committee, to which he had just been elected. Brother 
Frederick M. Crossett, '84, responded to "New York Chapter in Fra- 
ternity History," and read interesting letters from Bishop Henry Spell- 
meyer, D. D., I.L. D., '66, a charter member, and Dr. Otis J. Eddy, 
Hamilton, '68, of Washington, D. C, a member of tlie committee wh:ch 
installed the New York chapter. The Rev. John Love, D. D., '68, a 
charter member, read a poem in commemoration of the anniversary, in 
which the scenes of the early days of the chapter, when the Fraternity 
was in its anti-secrecy mood, were brought forward in poetic imagery, 
and beautiful tributes were paid in graceful verse to the brothers who 
have "gone before." 

Musical treats were provided by Brothers Beviere and Potter, of 
the Rutgers chapter, who played several violin selections, and by Brothers 
Hill, Van Home and Wilson of the New York chapter, who, with the 
assistance of the hearty chorus of graduate-members, sang many fra- 
ternity and college songs in spirited fashion. 

The more material wants were filled by an unfailing supply of cigars, 
and a supper served by Mazzeti, which was enjoyed by the following:

CHESAPEAKE DELTA UFSDLON CLUB. 

The Chesapeake Delta Upsilon Qub held a smoker in the parlors 
of the Hopkins Qub, Baltimore, on the evening of February 2nd, 1906. 



THE ALUMNI CLUBS. 1 1 1 

It was the occasion of the annual business meeting. For the benefit of 
the men present for the first time, E. L. Norton, Cornell, 'oi, told of the 
forming of the club, its objects, and history to the present time. 

In choosing a name of the Qub, that of "Chesapeake" had been sel- 
ected because it was hoped ultimately to embrace in the organization as 
much as possible of the Chesapeake repon. With this in view, the idea 
was discussed at length of holding the Annual Dinner this year in Wash- 
ington to create an interest in the club among Delta U's there, of whom 
we believe there are many. Final decision of the matter was left to 
the Board of Governors. Election of officers resulted in the following: 

President — L. O. Howard, Cornell, ^JJ. 

Vice-President — George C. Shepard, Cornell, '89. 

Secretary-Treasurer — Robert H. Walker, Swarthmore, '02. 

Board of Governors — Aldus N. Hershey, Lafayette, '93 ; Eugene L. 
Norton, Cornell, '01 ; T. Stockton Matthews, Swarthmore, '02. 

A cold spread and the smoker proper followed. Stories passed and 
incidents of varying character were recited, — certainly to the extreme 
enjo}'ment of all, and in instances at least, to the enrichment of the mind 
as well! Brother R. Keith Culver, Cartoonist for the Baltimore Ameri- 
can, favored us with his now famous bit of true humor, "Account of an 
Italian's Experience at a Football Game." 

Though the Qub has increased materially in membership since a 
year ago, only nineteen men found it possible to attend. 

It is customary at each gathering of the Qub to take count in a 
wholesome rivalry regarding the number of men present from each 
chapter. The result on this occasion was : 

Stanford 3 — R. P. Cowles, '99; R. K. Culver, '99; H. L. Lang- 
necker, '01. 

Cornell 3 — S. B. Austin, '95; George C. Shepard, '89; E. L. 
Norton, '01. 

Swarthmore 3 — G. M. Lamb, Jr., '00; T. S. Matthews, '02; R. H. 
Walker, '02.

BUFFALO DELTA UPSILON CLUB. 

The annual banquet of the Buffalo Delta Upsilon Qub was held at 
the University Qub, Buffalo, N. Y., Monday evening, February 12. The 
private dining room was tastefully decorated, and the party just filled the 
space around the long table. These members were present : 



112 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

Dr. A. L. Benedict, Michigan, '87; Rev. O. P. Gifford, Brown, ^74; 
Dr. William N. D. Bird, Cornell, '80 ; Howard J. Smith, Rochester, '93 ; 
Thomas H. Noonan, Middlebury, '91 ; Charles M. Harrington, Harvard, 
'85; William F. Strasmer, Rochester, '81; A. G. Miller, Colgate, '74; 
Edward H. Letchwortli, Harvard, '02 ; Samuel B. Botsford, Middlebury, 
'00; C DeForrest Cummings, Syracuse, '02; Moses T. Day, Amherst, 
ex-'9S; Dr. Charles Sumner Jones, Cornell, '84; Charles W. Under- 
wood, Lehigh, '94 ; Harry J. March, Rutgers, '87 ; C. S. Qiamberlain, 
Rutgers, '93 ; Donald P. Hurlburt, Middlebury, '99 ; and F. N. Moulton, 
Union, '86. 

The occasion was characterized by the informality which is the pe- 
culiar charm of these gatherings; most of those present were well ac- 
quainted, • being frequent visitors at the University Qub. President 
Charles W. Underwood presided. The Rev. O. P. Gifford was the princi- 
pal speaker, and his wholly impromptu talk was in the best style of this 
gifted brother who has so frequently addressed the national conventions 
of the fraternity. At the instance of Moses T. Day, a toast to LincoUi^ 
whose birthday it was, was drunk standing and in silence. Brotlier Bots- 
ford urged every member of the club to attend the annual convention, 
which is to be held at Middleburg next year, and gave some idea of the 
plans for that event. Brother Noonan, who is vice-president of the 
fraternity, spoke, giving some account of the Hamilton convention, which 
he attended, and Brother Letchworth spoke eloquently on the needs of 
alumni for retaining the fraternal spirit and some plans for ensuring this. 
Various other brothers also contributed to the speaking. The singing of 
the old songs was the most enthusiastic the club has ever had. 

The officers elected for the coming year were : Dr. Charles Sumner 
Jones, Cornell, '84, president ; Charles M. Harrington, Harvard, '85, vice- 
president, and Samuel B. Botsford, Middlebury, '00, secretary-treasurer. 
A resolution was passed declaring for a continuation of the monthly 
luncheons and the annual dinner. Dr. Jones advocated a larger dinner, 
with some out-of-town speaker, and Brother Noonan called the attention 
of the brothers to the need of subscribing for tlie Quarterly.

INIXANA DELTA UPSDUCm CLUB. 

The Qub held its regular annual banquet at the Denison Hotel, In- 
dianapolis, Friday evening, February 2nd. It was the best attended and 
probably the most enthusiastic and most enjoyable of all the Qub's annual 
dinners. An elaborate menu was served after which the following toasts 
were responded to on call of the toastmaster, Edward B. Raub, DePauw,, 

94: 

'Character and Delta Upsilon," F. W. Douglass, Browfi, '81. 

'An Experience," J. T. Eaglesfield, Michigan, '80. 

'Forty Years Ago," C H. Smith, Washington and Jefferson, '66. 

The Chapter House," Frank Caldwell, DcPauw, '92. 

The Undergraduate," J. Sanford Rickard, DcPauw, '08. 

The set toasts were followed by a number of impromptu speeches in- 
terspersed with yells and songs. 

Brothers E. B. Raub, Frank Caldwell and Jesse Dwight Sallee of the 
DePauw Chapter House Committee reported that the DePauw Chapter 
IS now comfortably housed in its new quarters. The interest taken in the 
movement by the alumni on the occasion of the banquet, and previously, 
assures the ultimate success of that venture. Delta U's generally through- 
out the State of Indiana whether of the DePauw Chapter or others have 
taken great interest in establishing Delta Upsilon in a home of its own. 
All feel that this is already an accomplished fact and that unless existing 
plans entirely miscarry the Qiapter will soon be the owner of a valuable 
property entirely free from debt. At least it will be so after another night

THE FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING 

OF THE COLGATE CHAPTER 

By a Colgate Undergraduate. 

The horn of plenty has been opened wide above the Colgate Chapter 
m recent days. First: the annual initiation with unusual promise for 
the future; then the Convention attended by the entire Chapter at the 
various sessions. Next, the privilege of entertaining a number of the 
delegates at the close of the Convention and as a climax, the inspiring 
observance of the Fortieth Anniversary of the Founding of the Colgate 
Chapter on November 21, 1905. It is not surprising that fraternity 
enthusiasm has bubbled up and run over like a living spring in our midst 

The afternoon of the anniversary the Chapter greeted the alumni in 
our beautiful chapter home and in the evening fifty-five undergraduates 
and graduates sat down at a banquet carefully planned and admirably 
conducted. The key note of this celebration seemed to be "prosperity." 
The history of the past with its story of struggle, of ambition and of 
achievement distinctly led up to the word "prosperity" and the promise 



FORTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF COLGATE CHAPTER 115 

of the future as evidenced in the words of both graduates and under- 
graduates and in the quotations from the scores of letters that were read 
were in perfect accord with this key note. This reading of letters was a 
distinct feature of the celebration and was introduced as a roll-call from 
absent alumni members. To each altunnus a letter had been addressed 
asking for a response, — the price of the response to be $1.00 or more and 
the money to be put into a fund for future needs of the Chapter House. 
The response was hearty, gratifying and satisfying. New furnishings 
for the Chapter home will be the substantial proof of the affectionate 
remembrance of those who were absent from the banquet. 

It would be interesting to quote from many of the letters speaking 
of the indebtedness of their writers to the Colgate Chapter and their 
happy memories of college days and of Delta Upsilon. The presence of 
Brothers H. H. Peabody, D.D., '66, and J. M. Taylor, LL.D., '67, who 
were charter members and who told of the beginnings of the chapter 
in the vivid recital of the feelings and plans of those who first avowed 
the principles of "Ouden Adelon," let us all into the charmed inner 
circle of the early days, and gave to us a new feeling of tenderness and 
reverence for Delta Upsilon. 

In three cases, father and son were present Brothers J. M. Taylor, 
•67, and J. P. Taylor, '95 ; Brothers D. D. Dean, '77, and R. G. Dean, '08; 
Brothers E. J. Farley, '83, and E. S. Farley, '07. Brother J. M. Taylor 
has been closely identified with the chapter since its founding, his resi- 
dence having been in Hamilton since graduation. A pleasant feature 
of the banquet was the presence of Brother Thornton B. Penfield who 
represented the Executive Council and came to our Colgate celebration 
with the representatives of the Hamilton Chapter, where he happened to 
be visiting at the time. His toast invigorated the speaking and linked 
the occasion to the forward stride of the whole fraternity outlook. The 
undergraduates will not soon forget the love evidenced by the alumni, 
their unwaning zeal and evident satisfaction to be present and the hearty 
responses from those who were necessarily absent. Notliing will bind 
the hearts of the younger men to tlie fraternity more than this splendid 
example. The toasts were as follows : 

Toastmaster, Professor Albert Perry Brigham, '79 

Forty Years, Professor James Morford Taylor, LL,D., '67 

The Charter Members, Reverend Henry Harrison Peabody. D.D., '66 
The Men of His Time, Reverend Delavan Daniel Dean, *77

OPEN PARLIAMENT- 

GCWCERNING FRATERNITY PINS. 

New York, October 27, 1905. 
To the Editor of the Delta Upsilon Quarterly: 

It seems to me that it would be a good idea for the Alumni as well 
as the undergraduates of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity to wear their pins 
exposed on all occasions, instead of lending them to their wives and sweet- 
hearts. I have met several members of the Fraternity, long since grad- 
uated, who recognized the pin, and spoke to me in a friendly way — two 
from Hamilton, three from Williams and one from the far west who 
was on here visiting during the past summer. It is some encourage 
ment to a man striking a strange town to see a Delta Upsilon pin swung 
by some man long since removed from college life, and very often we 
will meet friends who may be of assistance to us in a business way as 
well as a social. It is human, I suppose, for young men to loan their jeweled 
badges to their sweethearts, but it seems to me that if it is necessary for 
their sweethearts to wear them the young men might possibly raise 
enough money to buy two.

CONCERNING CHAPTER LETTERS. 

New York, January 18, igo6. 
To the Editor of the Quarterly : 

At the risk of making myself disliked I intend to criticise the chapter 
letters as published in the Quarterly. And I shall therefore hide behind 
a nom-de-plume — that's all the French I know. 

There has been considerable improvement lately, but there is always 
room for more. I have been led to form an opinion of the various colleges 
from the fact that even with changes in the chapter editor the character of 
the letter does not materially change. In several cases I have fancied tliat 
the "college" was hardly above the level of a high school. 

One of the recent letters contained the following : 



OPEN PARUAMENT 117 

**We start the year nineteen strong. This is by far the largest number 
with which we have started the opening term for some time, and needless 
to say we can afford to take our time in selecting new men. 

**The entering class is smaller in numbers than usual this year. How- 
ever, four promising men have been pledged so far." 

Aside from its English, which you might have corrected,, the contrast 
between those two paragraphs points its own lesson. 

Too many of the letters are but a statistical record of the positions 
held by the men on athletic teams, committees, etc This is all good, but 
not enough. I would be interested in news of the college itself and in the 
coming of new fraternities into the field. In the past seven or eight years 
several new chapters have been added to the fraternity list at my college, 
but our chapter letters have never mentiond them. The editor forgets that 
these matters would be news to the alumni. 

Some of the chapter editors seem to have been elected with absolute- 
ly no regard to their fitness for the work. Here are a few quotations 
which appear time after time in one form or another : 

"The opening of the school year found the chapter in prosperous con- 
dirion." 

"The prospects for a successful year are exceedingly bright." 
"They are men who will uphold the standard of Delta Upsilon." 
"We succeeded in getting the cream of the freshman class." 
"We extend greetings to the brothers of our sister chapters." 
"His was a noble life. To know him was to love him." 
"We are well represented in every branch of college life." 

It is evident that the chapter letter is an irksome duty to many of the 
editors. Whv should this be the case? Have we no enthuiastic under- 
graduates? I must not be too sweeping. There were half a dozen excel- 
lent letters in the last number. I read ever)' letter. Of course the statistics 
are of interest to the alumni of the chapter, but the rest of the letter, if 
there is any, is of general interest. A good test of a letter is to cut out 
the statistics; if the remainder claims your attention it is good. But 
these platitudes; these optimistic prognostications; these hopeful views 
of future honors ; they are all padding. I want to see this, the largest de- 
partment of the Quarterly, and the most important, made the most 
interesting. I shall continue to watch it with that hope. 

Fraternally yours, 

An Enthusiast. 



ii8 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

OBITUARIES. 

J. CHESTER GHAMHERLAIN» RUTGER& 'SZ. 

Electrical science and American bibliography each sustained a loss 
irreparable by the untimely death, from acute pneumonia, in New York, 
on July 28, 1905, of J. Chester Chamberlain, who occupied a unique 
place in the van of progressive electrical engineers, while an unusual 
number of people, bound by ties of blood and comradeship, grieve the 
loss of one of whom it has been aptly and truly said that he had "a 
positive genius for friendship." 

Mr. Chamberlain was bom in India July 3rd, i860, the eldest son 
of Charlotte (Birge) and Jacob Chamberlain, M.D., D.D. ; the seventh 
in generation from William Chamberlain of England, who settled in 
New England in 1648. He married in Albany, N. Y., June 12, 1895, 
Anna May Irwin, who, with one daughter, survives. For many years 
his home was in the Beresford, i West 81 st St., New York. 

After graduating with honor from Rutgers College in 1882, he took 
a post-graduate course in chemistry. Prominent in all college activities, 
he was a member of the football and baseball teams, champion in run- 
ning and tennis, captain of the boat association, class president and busi- 
ness manager of the Scarlet Letter, the college annual. Especially loyal 
and devoted to Delta Upsilon, he was president of his chapter, a delegate 
to the '81 Convention and a trustee of the old Delta Upsilon Qub of 
New York. ' The large attendance of Rutgers men at the 69th Convention 
and the 70th anniversary banquet in New York was due largely to his 
efforts. His influence and financial support were constantly employed 
in Delta U's behalf. Four of his brothers are members of the Rutgers 
chapter: William I., '82; Lewis B., '86; Rufus N., '88, and Charles S., 
'89; — one of the two Delta Upsilon groups of five brothers. 

So intense was Mr. Qiamberlain in his devotion and application to 
the serious purpose and work of his life, electrical engineering, that 
it may account for the splendid success he achieved in widely varied 
lines of development of electrical science and their triumphantly suc- 
cessful application in mechanically and commercially practicable ways. 

Upon leaving college he entered Edison's Laboratory in New York 
and thus became one of tlie pioneers in electrical lighting, and later he 
was an electrical engineer in the historic first Edison electric light station 
in Pearl St. In 1886 he became electrical engineer and superintendent 
of construction for the Sawyer-Man Co., and his earlier installations 
included the U. S. Capitol, the Hudson River Tunnel, which before 
used candles, and other great plants. In 1889 the Julien Traction Co., 
at that time introducing storage battery cars, engaged him and he pat- 
ented many improvements and inventions, some of which were funda-

mental and were acquired by the General Electric Co. About 1893 
electric launches attracted his attention, and for seven years he developed 
the design, construction and equipment of such boats, and carried them 
from an experimental condition to a complete commercial success, the 
Electric Boat Co. buying his interests in 1900. The next three years 
were devoted to private interests and early in 1904 he became general 
manager of the Automatic Refrigerating Co. He had just succeeded 
in developing and perfecting the system, especially in connection with 
electric motive power, when his sudden illness terminated his career. 

As a bibliophile Mr. Chamberlain, by his selection and acquirement 
of American authors, had passed all rivals, and possessed the best and 
most interesting collection, containing some forty unique items which he 
had unearthed. His fine discrimination and exclusiveness of taste was 
remarkably well demonstrated by his rejection of all copies which were 
not immaculate. His Whittier collection could not be approached and 
contained a copy of "Moll Pitcher" in the original blue paper wrappers, 
uncut. In the lines of the leading American authors there was no one 
who had a greater knowledge of first editions, and he was a familiar 
figure in the rare book shops and auction sales of New York, Boston 
and other cities. Throughout all rivalries for the possession of rare 
copies he always was beloved by his fellow collectors. 

Mr. Chamberlain also was an experienced, accomplished genealogist. 
One of the founders and most generous supporters of the Chamberlain 
Association of America, he gave to it much of his time and at the time 
of his death he was engaged in genealogical researches whose scope far 
exceeded the Chamberlain ancestry in America. 

Many clubs enrolled him as a member, including the Grolier Qub 
which appealed especially to him, the Colonial Qub, the Marine and 
Field Glib, the Delta Upsilon Onb. and the old Rlectnc Oiib: he was 
an early member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and 
a governor and chairman of the House Committee of the Engineer's Qub. 

The New England Historical Register closes an obituary notice 
of Mr. Chamberlain with : 

"Tet his highest excellence was not -his notable electrical dlscoverlei 
and achievements; nor in his marked business success; nor In his skillful. 
Important work as a bibliophile and genealogist He was faithful to the 
welfare of both his city and his country. In him gentleness was blended 
with strength, and amiableness with resolute Integrity. Well bom and well 
brought up, he appeared even to those who knew him most intimately, to 
^ave no remotest inclination to any form of dishonor. Comely, courteous, 
joyou.s with a genius for friendship, he was the light of his beautiful home, 
a centre of attraction among many acquaintances, and an example of perfect 
uprightness in wide business relations. He was, all in all, a Christian gentle- 
man of rarely noble type." 

Brother Chamberlain was one of a group of Delta Upsilon men from 



120 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

several chapters who were active workers in our Fraternity life over 
twenty years ago. The open-hearted, cordial, fraternal affection which 
he freely gave and received will never be forgotten. A characteristic 
type of Delta Upsilon manhood has passed this way.

JOHN R. PEALE, LAFAYETTE, Ift ^•THE MISSIONARY BIARTYR.'' 

T J NDER the title "John R. Peale, the Missionary Martyr," The 
^ A'^c* York Observer of November 23, 1905, published the fol- 
lowing article on Brotlier Peale who was murdered October 28, 1905, 
at Lien-chou, China: 

No deeper shadow has fallen over Princeton Seminary in years 
than that caused by the news of tlie martyrdom of the Rev. John 
R. Peale and his wife, in Lien-cliou, China, October 28, 1905. 

Mr. Peale was graduated from Lafayette College in 1902; was an 
honor man in his class; President of the Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation; a member of the Dramatic Association and the Delta Upsilon 
Fraternity. He was editor of the College Annual; won the Coleman 
Biblical prize in his freshman year ; was three times a delegate to North- 
field and was Leader of the Volunteer Band. His chief purpose while in 
college was the spiritual uplift of the college life. 

He entered Princeton Seminary in the fall of 1902, where he was one 
of the most popular of the men and beloved by both faculty and students. 
Seldom has there ever been a student there more intensely interested in 
foreign missions or one who tried to do more to interest his fellow 
students in that work. * * * He lived a sweet, unassuming life, but 
did much quiet personal work among men. 

Just before his departure for China Mr. Peale expressed the wish 
that he might be allowed to serve his Master forty years in China. He 
was permitted to live there only forty days, so that beyond a few 
letters expressing his joy at being in China, there is nothing to report 
of his life as a missionary; but he had done a good work for missions 
before he left the United States. He was graduated from Princeton 
Seminary in the class of 1905, having received his M. A. degree from 
Princeton University in 1904. He sailed for China Augfust 16, 1905. He 
had been at his station in Lien-chou only four days when the massacre 
ocaired, and he and his young wife were slain. His death came as a 
great shock to the entire student body. Yet no greater stimulus could 
have come to the seminary for foreign missions than the martyrdom of 
this one beloved by all, who worked so zealously for that cause while here. 
Instead of its being a damper thrown upon the cause men are hearing in 
it a clarion call to rise and fill the gap left vacant.

A GARFIELD MEMORIAL 121 

On Sunday afternoon, November 4, 1905, a memorial service was 
held in the Seminary for Mr. Peale, and practically the entire student 
body and faculty were there. * * * It was one of the most impres- 
sive meetings ever held in Princeton Seminary. His death has caused 
a wave of missionary zeal to sweep over the Seminary. 

FREDERIC G* KIMBSICH, COLGATE, 'O^^-IN MEMORIAM. 

"D Y the death of Frederic G. Kimmich on December 21, 1905, the 
"*^ Colgate chapter suffered a loss unparalleled in the experience of 
the present members. A private service was held at the chapter house 
and the funeral was at his former home, Horseheads, N. Y., many of 
the chapter and college attending. Six of the active chapter acted as 
pall-bearers. At the time of his death he was president of the senior 
class, captain-elect of the varsity baseball team and president-elect of 
the chapter. He had been offered the state secretaryship of tlie Penn- 
sylvania Y. M. C. A. He was a leader in the life of the college and 
was a faithful student, gaining the respect of his instructors by his work. 

Brother Kimmich's manly attitude toward life, his noble and lovable 
disposition, have had a lasting influence on all who knew him. 

In these days of our loss we, his brothers, have gained a closer 
fraternal bond and a new impulse toward true living. 



A GARFIELD MEMORIAL. 

At the Colgate alumni banquet at Hamilton, last June, John B. 
Creighton, secretary of the Brooklyn League, responded to the toast, 
**The Fraternity Man in Public Life." In part he spoke as follows: 

''In speaking of Delta Upsilon men in public life the name of James 
A. Garfield still stands pre-eminent. 

"It seems to me that Delta Upsilon men the world round should 
make hallowed ground of the room in which he died. Why not have 
it a Garfield museum assembled by the love of his fraternity bretlircn? 
Whv not make it a Mecca for all who believe the cardinal features of 
the Delta Upsilon ideals were exemplified in the life of James A. Garfield? 
Could not the Colgate chapter start such a movement? The cottage is 
now one belonging to the Elberon Hotel and rented each season to who- 
ever may apply. The chair in which the President died still remains in 
the room." 

Brother Creighton is a member of the executive committee and sec- 
retary of the Brooklyn League. His address is Temple Bar, 44 Court 
Street, Brooklyn, N. Y.

BOOK REVIEWS. 

The Divine Processional. A poem in twenty-nine cantos, interspersed 
with songs. By the Rev. Dennis Wortman, D.D., L.H.D. Author 
of "Rcliques of Christ." Fleming H. Revell. $1.50. For sale by 
Board of Publication of Reformed Qiurch, 25 E. 22d st, N. Y. 

The poet of the 1892 Convention, held with tlie Colby Chapter at 
Waterville, Maine, was the Rev. Denis Wortman, D. D., L. H. D., 
Amherst, '57. Shortly before the Convention Dr. Wortman found him- 
self unable to attend, and forwarded his manuscript which was read 
by another. His striking poem, "The Wonder-Cross," made a profound 
impression and it will interest the members of the Fraternity of which, 
for more than half a century. Dr. Wortman has been a highly honored 
member, to know that this striking interpretation of Christianity's central 
fact has grown until it now appears a handsome volume of nearly three 
hundred pages, published by Fleming H. Revell Co., under the title of 
"The Divine Processional." The title as it now appears, is, according 
to the author in his introduction more suggestive of the trend and pur- 
pose of the whole work than the one originally selected, "The Wonder- 
Cross." This book, and by that I mean the poem, is one of the most 
remarakble productions in recent years. A writer in the Princeton 
Reviezv began his review with this striking sentence: "In the above 
poem Dr. Wortman has given us the noblest modem Christian epic," and 
continues, "It will rank as the best harmony of the apparently conflicting 
thoughts of our teeming age and as their highest inspiration. It gives 
them all a place in a firmament that presents an orderly, progressive, 
divine scheme, wherein glimpses of an infinite unity cause the stars to 
sing together and sons of God to shout for joy." William Hayes Ward 
of The Independent says, "It is a remarkably bold and original poem in 
its plot and conception, and surprisingly well constructed and developed. 
You have attempted a most unusual task, like Milton in the third tx>ok 
of Paradise Lost, to make God a principal speaker in the epic, or like 
one of the old prophets, to utter a Thus saith the Lord.' " This intro- 
duction of Jehovah as one of the speakers is both audacious and sublime. 
The author gives his reason for it in these words : "To hear the Father 
speak, appeared the only way to represent tlie incarnation and atonement 
from the divine standpoint. We have been in the bad habit of overlooking 
the Father's interest in the redemptive work. Our praise and praying 
would seem to indicate that in showing fortli His mercy. He were going 
against His own nature; as though He needed placating; as though He 
did not love us but wanted to, and so let His beloved die on the cross 
that He might overcome the legal obstacles and scruples, and love us 
and forgive; We seem sometimes to forget that God so loved the world 



BOOK REVIEWS 123 

that He gave His only begotten Son! Therefore, here we would have 
Himself speak out His own gracious heart; however brokenly and 
erringly we may interpret it into our human speech. The poem, there- 
fore, would venture reverently to place us in the attitude of listening to 
His Voice, and gathering therefrom some conception of what He is 
pleased to plan." And the poem does this very thing. Everywhere 
reverence is sensed and dignity is realized. It is a master hand that in 
this poem does this very thing. It has been said that "Revelation is 
God's triumphant march through history," and it is along this path 
that the author walks with stately and reverent step, the purpose of the 
poem being an interpretation of nature, of history, and of God's relation 
to both. That God is in his world and at work toward a divine purpose, 
the author firmly believes and as successfully shows. Bold in his utter- 
ances, daring in his imagination, with a fine poetic feeling, with a jubilant 
faith, and breathing through all his verses a fine, wholesome mysticism, 
Dr. Wortman has produced a great poem. He has honored the fratern- 
ity of which he is a member, and has rendered a distinct service to 
religion. As Margaret Sangster says, in her review of the poem, "No 
one who loves Jesus and loves to dwell on his wonderful life, wonderful 
death, and resurrection, can fail to find profit in this remarkable book. 
It is the product of many brooding years, not the hasty and careless 
work of an hour." It is a book, therefore, which one will read, and 
read again. Ezra Squier Tipple. 

The Torch: a novel, by Herbert M. Hopkins, {Columbia, '93); the 
Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis; pp 398; price $1.50. 

This is neither a murder mystery nor a problem novel — the two 
apparently favored types of stories today. It has, however, its mystery 
and its problem, for is not the heart of a woman a mystery and is not 
the management of a university a problem ? 

A new president, ambitious and snobbish, takes the reins in the 
university at Argos and drives with a curb bit. He dismisses the profes- 
sor of political economy, an old classmate who was instrumental in his 
appointment, on the ground of improper socialistic and political activities. 
The faculty shows its indignation by the resignation of a dozen of the 
most prominent members. Although the author was connected with 
Stanford University at about the time of the dismissal of a professor 
for utterances offensive to the founder he did not intend to identify this 
university with his story. He says that he took his idea from this inci- 
dent, but that to compare tlie wealthy woman and false-hearted president 
of the story witli Mrs. Stanford and President Jordan would be worse 
than caricature. 

The story is full of action and interest and shows the result of 
letting money-worship take the place of sound learning. The characters

arc individually well drawn, the plot is evenly developed and the ending 
IS satisfactory. The story is altogether thoroughly enjoyable. 

Philippine Life in Town and Country. By James A. Le Roy {Michi- 
gan, '96) ; illustrated; $1.20, G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York. 

This book will prove of interest to many more than the thirty or 
forty Delta U's who have been to the Philippines recently. The subject 
is full of interest to all patriotic Americans. The author has g^ven a 
thoughtful consideration of the Filipino civilization, progress and pros- 
pects. The Netv York Tribune says : 

"His avowed purpose is *to set forth the Filipinos as they are, avoid- 
ing, on the one hand, pschological speculation under the guise of analysis 
of their characteristics, and, on the other hand, political propaganda in 
behalf of any theoretical plan for their future government, or in behalf 
of the compromise plan under which they are at present being governed.' 
This purpose Mr. Le Roy fulfils with rare discretion, and his book may 
be read with profit and without offense by imperialist and anti-imperial- 
ist alike. It is, in fact, one of the sanest and least prejudiced of the 
many accounts, discussions and pronunciamentos that form the already 
large and highly variegated bibliog^phy in regard to our new and 
perplexing Asiatic possessions. The point which the author keeps con- 
stantly in view in his description of native 'characteristics, customs and 
institutions is the capacity for progress which they indicate." 

Brother Le Roy has had unusual opportunities for studying his 
subject. He was for several years connected with the Department of 
the Interior of the Philippine Government. The Providence Journal says, 
at the close of a long review : "Mr. Le Roy is manifestly to be listened 
to with respect. He gives his facts plainly, and, although he is in 
the main optimistic, he admits that there are grave possibilities. What 
is most needed at the present time, he feels, is a class of men of 'definite 
attainments, men who have acquired knowledge by hard work, who will 
apply themselves to the immediate practical needs of the people.' The 
unfortunate, possibly even fatal, feature of the present situation is that 
the young men of the best type, 'but one instant after having contemned 
the ancient regime for having bound their people in economic and intel- 
lectual slavery, are pushing headlong into the speculations of the sort 
which so commonly enchant the Spanish soul, pottering about the out- 
skirts of modem science, grasping after distorted fragments of the phil- 
osophy of other nations. It is so much easier to reach g^eat conclusions 
in sociology, to chase theorems of political philosophy around a stump, 
than to solve the practical problems of administration now facing the 
Philippine municipalities and towns. And yet, * * * they set up for 
themselves the standards of the Occident, not those of the Orient.' "

Referring to the table giving a summary of chapter membership pub-

The Caduceus of Kappa Sigma gives a list of percentages of 
fraternity men to the number of male students in a number of colleges 
from which we take the following: Bowdoin, 85 per cent; Brown, 60; 
New York, 45; Swarthmore, 43; Stanford, 28; Nebraska, 20 (excluding 
locals and professionals); Wisconsin, 13 (excluding professionals). 



The Kappa Alpha Theta girls evidently had a good time on the 
way to 'convention last July. Here is where the sororities "win out" : 

* * they all turned in and made up their own berths, despairing 
of ever getting beds through the uncertain and ineflScient motions of a 
green porter. One girl developed such skill that with the aid of a sopho- 
more to fetch sheets and pillow cases from the linen closet she made 
up eight berths.

Fifty years ago a man generally wore his fraternity pin in his cravat. 
As time wore on the pin advanced to the lapel of the coat; then fra- 
ternity conservatism dictated that it was ill-mannered to display it upon 
any place but the waistcoat. The best authorities upon the subject recog- 
nize that it is only proper to wear the pin as near the heart as possible. — 
Phi Gamma Delta. 

Should any chapter of Delta Upsilon consider local conditions para- 
mount and good taste of lesser importance it would do well to realize 
that the Phi Gamma Delta voices the opinion of all fraternities. 



This is "George Edwin's" item 3 in instructions to chapter editors 
as given in Desmos of Delta Sigma Delta : 

The type-setter is not especially impressed by monograms or em- 
bossed letter heads, and he absolutely abhors one of these letters that skip 
from the first page to the third, then back to the second, and finally 
finish on the fourth. That may be all right in writing to Maude, but 
the type-setter is a sordid chap with work-stained fingers and that kind 
of copy frequently makes him swear like a hired man, which is bad for 

his morals.

On December 26, 1904, at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon convention at 
Memphis, Tenn., that fraternity published the first issue of its "Con-

the writer is aware, a new venture in fraternity journalism." On October 
26, 1 904, two months earlier, the first copy of "The Convention Daily" 
was published at the Qiicago convention of Delta Upsilon, and was, so 
far as we are aware, the first venture of its kind. 

Incidentally it was in 1867 ^^* Delta Upsilon published the first

30 chapters! Shades of Baird! Someone must have been asleep. The 
table must date back to 1896, when we had 29 chapters and increased 
to 31. The October, 1905, Quarterly published a table compiled from 
the latest edition of Baird's Manual giving Delta Upsilon 9,169 mem- 
bers and 36 chapters. And now we have 37 chapters and our member- 
ship is close to ten thousand.

extension in the United States. In the whole Union there remain only 
two or three state Universities which have not been occupied by tlie

There were three co-eds at the University of Nortli Carolina last 
year. At Purdue there were twenty-eight. There are six hundred more

On the football team which went 
through its schedule last fall with 
remarkable success until th& final 
and critical game, Macgregor, '07. 
ably filled the tackle position, and 
Conklin, '08, fitted in well at center. 
On the Tictorious Sophomore team, 
Paine played guard and Townsend 
end, with Larrabce as tackle for t^e 
Freshmen. In the winter sports 
liuckey has become more prominent 
this year, and on the team is Grif- 
fith, '08, who plays forward. Hurley, 
'07, is manager, and Dennet, '07, 
is assistant manager of this enter- 
prise. 

In debate we have Just formed a 
triangular league with Williams and 
Dartmouth, and of the six men on 
our Varsity teams, three are Delta 
U's, — Bruce, '07, who will harangue 
against Dartmouth, and Dennet, '07, 
and Hurley, '07, who will uphold the 
argument against Williams. The 
Sophomore debating team has just 
bern picked and Paine, *08, his been 
chosen captain. As Hughes, '09, 
has been elected president of the 
Freshman Debating society, the ac- 
tivity, not to say the supremacy, of 
Delta Upsilon in Brown debating cir- 
cles is very easily recognized. 

In the social life of the campus, 
we are officially represented by Hur- 
ley, '07, treasurer of the Junior Week 
Committee, Dennet, '07, member of 
the Junior Promenade Committee, 
and Townsend, '08, member of the 
Sophomore Ball Committee. In a 
large event, the annual Brown Ban- 
quet, which occurs in the spring, 
Swafficld, '06, is chairman of the 
committee and Hurley, '07, and 
Paine, '08, are members. 

In the intellectual life, outside of 
the regular curriculum, there have 
been several s'^ries, one of Faculty 
lectures, this fall, which Preddeut 
Faunce began with an address on 
"Sicily, Once the Center of the 
World." This winter there is in 
progress a series of Vesper services, 
at five o'clock, Wednesdays, at which 
President Faunce officiated on Jan- 
uary 10, and Reverend George H. 
Ferris is to speak on February 24. 
Pottltney Bigelow, as gueat of the 
Providence Alumni of Brown is deliv- 
ering, every Monday night, those ut- 



terances which have so stirred offi- 
cious Washington. 

At the annual banquet of the 
Brown Alumni of New York, held on 
January 19, it was announced that 
Andrew Carnegie had offered $150,- 
000, to be half of the contribution 
for a new University library. At 
this banquet Charles B. Hughes, '81, 
was the chief speaker, and was greet- 
ed with an outburst of enthusiasm. 
President Faunce also spoke. 

There have been some changes in 
the Delta Upsilon membership of the 
faculty. Dr. Allan H. WiUett, Ph. 
D., of the department of Polit'cal 
Economy is to have charge of the de- 
partment of Economics at Carnegie 
lustitute, Pittsburg, and Arthur U. 
Pope, '03, and Basil Bois Wood, '05, 
are now in our philosophic depart- 
ment, the first as instructor, the lat- 
ter as assistant. Pope has made sev- 
eral maps of Palestine, one of which 
gained high recognition among geog- 
raphers at home and abroad. 

There are 849 undergraduates at 
the University this year, of whom 
thirty-one are Delta U's, and these 
are by no means the "submerged" 
one twenty-eighth.

'76 — Professor Oeorge B. Horr of 
the Newton Baptist Theological In- 
stitution was the speaker on Novem- 
ber 9» 1905, at die second in the 
series of biblical lectures at the 
Twentieth Century Club. 

"The Bible in Present Day Con- 
ditions" was analjrzed by Professor 
Horr, and this subject he treated 
from the standpoint of the modem 
intellectual revolution and its influ- 
ence upon conceptions of the Bible. 

'80 and '81 — ^At the annual dinner 
of the alumni of Brown Uniyemlty 
on January 19, 1906, President W. 
H. P. Faunce announced that Andrew 
Carnegie had given $160,000 toward 
a library in memory of John Hay. 

Dr. Faunce then tackled football. 
He said that the "sins of the entire 
college should not be loaded on a 
single game." He emphasized the 
improvement in the moral tone of 
college life caused by the game, be- 
cause drinking and carousing prac- 
tically had yielded to the demand of 
football that its players lead clean, 
healthy lives. "The question is," he 
said, "what the game has done for 
the social and official side of the 
university. There is no doubt that 
the rules should be modified, but I 
would not make the game as innocu- 
ous as checkers." 

Charles B. Hughes, representing 
the class of '81, spoke of the college 
men in practical life and the value 
of their ideals. "I cannot under- 
stand how men after four years of 
life in an atmosphere of culture and 
high ideals," he said, "can come out 
of college and become the lickspittles 
of a political boss. Tou may look 
into our insurance companies, into 
our legislatures, and I am sorry to 
say you will find college men trying 
to get their share of graft with the 
rest of them." 

'82 — Prof. W. B. Jacobs of Brown 
University was elected secretary of 
the new organisation known as the

'90 — Prof. James Q. Dealey re- 
cently exemplified the breadth of 
spirit which characterises the fra- 
ternity. The "New York Sun" said: 

"Out of Brown Univcfrsity — ^great- 
est of the Baptist Church— out of 
Providence, R. I., the city of Roger 
Williams, the unbigoted New Eng- 
land religious outcast— came a cham- 
pion this morning for the Unitarian 
and Universalist churches at the In- 
terchurch Conference on Federation 
et Carnegie Hall. He was Prof, 
James Quale Dealey, Ph. D., head of 
the department of social and politi- 
cal sciences of Brown University and 
President of the Rhode Island Feder- 
ation of Churches. 

"At the beginning of the business 
session, which was given up to a dis- 
cussion of a plan of federation, the 
professor created a sensation by a 
motion that practically opened the 
door to the latltudinarian denomina- 
tions. The sensation was in the na- 
ture of an amendment to Clause 7 
of the plan of federation and read as 
follows: 

" 'Other diurch bodies, not indud- 
ed in the list of organisations above 
mentioned, may become members of

the Federal council if they make ap- 
plication before or on Jan. 1, 1907. 

*' 'No phraseology contained in the 
plan of anion shall be construed to 
imply any doctrinal basis whatever 
save that implied in the broadest 
ChrisUan unity/ " 

Prof. Dealey has been re-elected 
president of the state council of the 
Rhode Island Federation of Churches 
which, with the State Federation of 
New York and Massachusetts, was 
organized under the auspices of the 
National Federation of Churches. 
The body has the broadest possible 
basis, and includes both the Univer- 
sal and the Unitarian Churches. On 
the other hand, the federation pro- 
posed by the Carnegie Hall gathering 
will probably take a much narrower 
basis. If, therefore, the State federa- 
tions are allowed representation in 
the Federal Council, there will prob- 
ably be a clash of basis of represen- 
tation, it is said. Prof. Dealey's 
amendments were not adopted. 

'91 — Rev. George H. Ferris, for-

rowness and unfairness of those con- 
trolling the recent so-called Inter-

THE opening of the spring term 
finds our chapter settled at last 
in our new fraternity house, which we 
will dedicate by an afternoon recep- 
tion and an evening dance sometime 
during February. This will be the 
formal opening to the College at 
large. 

The University is at present arous- 
ed over the reform of Intercollegiate 
Football which is so universally be- 
ing waged. From the stand now 
taken it appears that the Pacific 
Coast universities will act independ- 
ently in this matter. There is a 
etrong sentinuent in favor of the 
Rugby game and in all probabality 
the Freshmen will play this next 
term. 

The usual spring sports are now 
attracting the attention of the ath- 
letes. More attention will be paid 
to these sports on the part of the 
public now that football has so de- 
clined in favor. 

A number of promising freshmen 
have entered this term and this looks 
good for the Freshman Track Meet 
which will be held with Stanford this 
spring. A series of baseball games 
between the Freshman classes will 
be played. It is hoped that these 
games between the first year men 
will induce many players to come out. 

It is possible ihnt the rowing re- 
gatta will be held at San Diego, in 
Southern California this year. This

The opening of the term was mark* 
ed by the dedication of California 
Hall, the first of the buildings of the 
greater Uniyersity, at which the Chi- 
nese Imperial Delegation were inter- 
ested spectators. 

Last week we entertained Clayton 
S. Cooper, Brown, '94, International

SINCB our last letter was written 
the chapter has been weakened 
by the loss of fonr of its members. 
Vogt, '06, left college in November on 
account of ill health. He is now at 
Albuquerque, New Mez co, picking 
up rapidly. About .^is time Worley, 
'06, left college to enter business. 
He is still in Chicago. Shortly after- 
ward, Harvey Fuller, '08, left to act 
as tutor and companion for Marshall 



Field in. He is now at Lakewood, 
New Jersey. Hitchcock, '06, left as 
in January to go into business, with 
the Western^Electric Company of Chi- 
cago. 

This loss in 'numbers was met by 
our annual initiation, which was held 
on our fifth anniversary, January 
fifth. A number of our alumni were 
prreent, as well as brothers from 
the Harvard, Northwestern, Adelbert, 
Rutgers, Minnesota, Cornell, Swarth-

The football season closed with the

the gold footballs given to those who 
played on the championship team. 
They are: Parry, '06, left end; Hitch- 
cock, right half-back; and Russell, 
'08, right guard. 

Captain Parry of the track team, 
expects to have a winning Indoor 
team this season. Russell and Bro.- 
to-be Taylor are counting on helping 
him out in the point winning. 

Bruce is on the gymnastic team. 
Pressure of other work makre it nec- 
essary for Hughes, '06, to give up 
his position on the basketball team. 

The inter-fraternity bowling league 
has Just met, electing Parry presi- 
dent. Two years ago he won the cup 
for high score with a total of 240 
pins. So far, we have won two out 
of three games from Alpha Delta Phi, 
and lost by the same score to Phi 
Kappa Psi. 

At the delayed elections of the

VERY little has happened recent- 
ly to bring the Colby chapter 
into sp'cial prominence. However, a 
few laurels have been won and a good 
foundation is being laid for a steady, 
healthy growth in all college and fra- 
ternity activities. 

Our d'-legates returned from the 
Convention full of enthusiasm and 
with a better appreciation of Delta 
Upsilon. Some of this enthusiasm 
has already been transmitted to the 
other members and they are sparing 
no effort that will help our chapter 
to live up to our ideals. 

Our new delegation is already be- 
ginning to show that it is made of 
real Delta Upsilon stuff. Bro. Foye, 
who comes to us from West Bridge- 
port, Mass., by his excellent prepara- 
tion for college was able to capture 
the first entrance prize. Bro. Mc- 
Lellan Is holding down the position 
of center on the varsity basketball 
team. Bro. McCombe, '08, is meeting 
with marked success as Reader for 
the Musical Clubs. A college band 
has recently hern organized and on 
this Delta Upsilon is well represented 
by Tallman, Merrill, and Richardson, 
'09, Betts, '07, and Lincoln, '06. 

On the baseball team which has 
already begun training, Bro. Coombs 
is captain and pitcher, Bro. Tribou is 
out for his old position in left field 
and is sure to hold it. Both of these 
men were selected for the All-Maine 
team last year. 

Looking backward, we can see that 
our chapter has already accompli^ed 
something this year; looking forward, 
we can also see that there are excel- 
lent opportunities to accomplish more 
and the brothers are eager to seize 
upon these opportunities as they 
come. 

It will give great pleasure to the 
Colby chapter to entertain or see In 
our meetings any of the Delta Upsi-

ON November 21 our chapter 
passed through one of its red- 
letter days when we celebrated the 
40 th anniversary of its founding with 
a banquet. A goodly number of our 
alumni were here to help us celebrate 
the occasion as well as several broth- 
ers from other chapters. 

We are pleased to have with us 
Bro. A. D. Brownell, '02, who has re- 
turned to finish hie course in the

give up three years ago on account 
of his father's illness.

Bro. Porter, '06, the hasketball

are being tried out now for the Olee

WB have made steady progress 
throughout a busy winter. 
Two more freshmen were initiated 
on December 18, making five new 
men to oftset the six seniors we lose 
In June. 

It has given us pleasure to see so 
many alumni at chapter functions, 
notably at the December initiation, 
when we held an alumni smoker. 
The chapter house plan Is progress- 
ing favorably among the alumni and 
with4n the chapter under the direc- 
tion of Bros. Patterson, '92, and 
Mathews, '95. The Executive Coun- 
cil met here on December 8. 

Immediately after the close of the 
football session the student body re- 
ceived the Jarring news that football 
had been abolished by the Univer- 
sity faculty. The matter went 
through the various stages of discus- 
sion, protest, statements by the Presi- 
dent, and student mass-meetings. 
"Spectator," under the editorial di- 
rection of Maynard, '06, was a promi- 
nent factor in the students' fight. 
The University Council, In taking 
final action against the sport Just 
before Christmas, went even further 
and recommended to the President 
tbe close restriction of all inter- 
collegiate sports except rowing. To 
aid him in the proposed investiga- 
tion. President Butler has appointed 
Committees of Nine from the faculty 
and the alumni, and also from the 
undergraduates, when he found out 
how strongly they felt in the matter. 
Delta Upsllon members of the three 
committees are Prof. H. G. Lord, 
Amherst, '71, of the faculty, W. V. 
King, '89, of the alumni, and May- 
nard, '06, of the undergraduates.

Halght, '06, did good work in the 
"soccer" game with Cornell. He play- 
ed at goal. Essex, '06, has been elect- 
ed an editor on Spectator, and 
Chapin, '07, has been advanced to 
the managing board. On the basket- 
ball team, Fettretch, '06, is playing at 
right guard, and Halght, '06, and 
Reilley, New York, '05, who is in 
the law school this year, are among 
the substitutes. Though the team 
has not done, so well as last year's 
combination, it has only lost one 
game so far, that with Dartmouth. 
Maynard, '06, has been elected secre- 
tary of the Athletic Council. Ever- 
ett Swartwout, '08, Williamson, '08, 
and Robert Swartwout, '08, are try- 
ing for the 'Varsity baseball team. 
On the senior class-book committee 
we have Maynard, '06. Clarke, '07, 
has been holding down his old place 
on the swimming team. At the elec- 
tion of Class Day officers, Essex, '06, 
secured the position of historian. 
With Maynard, '06, who as secretary 
calls the class roll, we have two out 
of eight speakers on the program. 
This year the Seniors will plant ivy 
instead of the customary yew tree. 
On our crowded campus fromer class 
trees have never had a chance to 
grow. Jacques, '09, is Freshman 
fencing manager. For the first time 
in several years the Columbian, on 
which Delta Upsllon was represented, 
as usual, appeared before Christmas. 
Its timeliness and acknowledged ex- 
cellence made it quite a success. 

We will have Temple, '06, and Hill, 
'07, out for the lacrosse team this 
year. Pell, '09, has Joined the Fresh- 
man Debating Society. Hoag, '09, is 
out for the Freshman crew. Several 
brothers are trying for the 'Varsity 
and class track teams. 

On December 15 the pan-Hellenic 
banquet at Columbia was held. Over 
four hundred men were present, and 
our chapter attended in a body. This 
event bids fair to become a perma- 
nency in the fraternity world.

AFTER the last letter to the Quar- 
terly our chapter has bren busy 
getting settled. We are now in good 
running order and are ready to sit 
up and take notice of what is doing 
in outside world. But while we have 
been busy learning to know each 
other, we have not been so absorbed 
in that that we couldn't pay a little 
attention to the college activities. 

Bro. H. P. DuBois, '06, has been 
elected Chairman of the Senior Ball, 
and this, with his office of Editor-in- 
Chief of the Cornell Daily Sun, gives 
him an enviable position in hia class. 

Bro. H. E. Davis, '07, is holding 
up the reputation of the Junior class 
as the Vice President of the Inter- 
scholastic League and Chairman of 
the Junior class Vigilance Commit- 
tee. These two positions are of 
great importance owing to what they 
will bring next year. 

For the second time Bro. Root, 
'08, is playing on the Varsity Basket- 
ball team, and is putting up his regu- 
lar good game. He has also been 
elected to his class society, and we 
ferl that he is helping the chapter to 
maintain its standing in the Univer- 
sity. In fact, all the members of the 
chapter this year seem to be doing 
their best in this direction, and are 
succeeding. 

While on the Olee Club trip this 
Christmas Bro. Nichols, '06, sang sev- 
eral solos in the concerts, and made a 
very good impression on the audi- 
ence. 

The whole chapter has been great- 
ly shocked and grieved to hear of the 
sudden death of Brother Harry Frank 
Sonuner, '08, at his home in New 



York last month. While Bro. Som- 
mer was not known by all the pres- 
ent members of the chapter, those 
who knew him had spoken about 
him 80 often that his d<'ath was felt 
by all. And in losing him we all feel 
that we lose one of the most loyal 
Delta U's that we have ever had.

University, California, who spoke 
December 29 at the Chamber of Com-

cator and scientist had an unusually 
large and appreciative audience, hold- 
ing as it did the most prominent in 
business affairs and the leaders in 
thought and education throughout 
the state. He spoke of the socalled 
"Yellow Peril," and, remarkable to 
relate from the president of a Cali- 
fornia institution, made little of the 
"peril" that mi^t be expected from 
either Japan or China. — Denver Re- 
publican. 

The N. Y. Tribune, in an editorial, 
quotes President Jordan thus: 

The position of the labor unions 
on the coast in regard to excluding 
Oriental labor is liable to cause trou- 
ble, for the unions want a special ban 
put upon Chinese, Japanese and Cor- 
eans. If this measure becomes a 
law it will mean war between the 
United States and Japan. I am sure 
of it, because I am personally ac- 
quainted with many of the Japanese 
officials and know their sentiments. 

President Jordan addressed the 
students and guests of Swarthmore 
College, November 18, 1905. His 
subject was '*The Blood of the Na- 
tions." Among other things he said: 

Greece and Rome, Carthage and 
Egypt, the Arabs and the Moors fell 
because, their warriors dying, the 
nation bred real men no more. The 
man of the strong arm and the quick 
eye gave place to the slave, the 
pariah, the man with the hoe, whose 
lot changes not with the changes of 
dynasties.

cently announced that Dr. John Cas- 
per Branner, as acting president of

class. In the course of his remarks 
he gave the new students a serious 
talk, speaking at length on the ex-

practice of rushing men from the 
train to the club house and there 
pledging them, before they have a 
chance to get their bearings, and he 
urged the fraternities to use more 
moderation in getting their new 
members.

'88 — ^The Team Owners' Review 
for September contains an illustrated 
article on the career and the present 
influential and prominent position of 
George Judd Tansey, the president 
and manager of what is probably 
the largest teaming business in the 
United States — the St Louis Trans- 
fer Company of St Louis, Mo. The 
firm owns between 1,000 and 1,100 
horses, and transports every day 
about 1,600 tons of freight 

After leaving Cornell Mr. Tansey 
attended the St Louis Law School 
and was admitted to the bar in the 
following year. In 1889 he became 
assistant president and auditor of 
the St Louis Transfer Company, of 
which his father was then president 

The following year he entered 
upon the practice of law and con- 
tinued for nine years in the active 
practice of his profession. 

Upon the death of his father, R. 
P. Tansey, in 1899, the St Louis 
Transfer company elected the son to 
the position of president and general 
manager. 

Mr. Tansey's prominent position, 
his influence and his legal knowledge 
have been of immense benefit to the 
entire teaming trade of St. Louis on 
several occasions during controver- 
sies with the labor unions. While 
Mr. Tansey is not an opponent of 
labor unions, he believes in maintain- 
ing the principle of the "open shop." 

In 1902 Mr. Tansey was elected 
president of the Merchants' Exchange 
of St Louis. He was a director of 
the Louisiana Purchase Exposition 
company. He is now a director of 
the Granite Bi-Metalllc Mining com- 
pany and a member of various social

men. Bro. C. Earl Smltli, '07, ia 
back in school ag^ain. True to our 
custom we kept on the lookout for 
good men even tho' the "rush" of the 
first term had long since passed. 
As a result we have just initiated 
two more men, Bro. Eugene Taylor, 
*07, who is assistant in the Mathe- 
matical department of the University, 
and Bro. Lee Strong who entered as 
« freshman this term. Besides these 
we pledged two men of the prepara- 
tory school, Randolph C. Patton and 
Carl Ell. Both are excellent students 
and the latter is a Senior and a star 
player on the basketball team. We 
have now four strong men coming up 
from the Academy and prospects for 
Delta U in De Pauw are bright in- 
deed. 

It is seldom that we refer to our 
social accomplishments, but some of 
our Alumni will perhaps be inter- 
ested in a little plan which we ar- 
ranged and carried out with no small 
degree of success last term. It was 
in the form of amatuer theatricals. 
The play entitled "Three Ck>llege 
Days" was written by Bro. Rawlings. 
All roles except that of the heroine 
were played by men of the fraternity. 
The heroine was Miss Edith Miller, 
of Frankfort, Ind., a cousin of one 
of the brothers. A fraternity orch'^s- 
tra was organised and part of the 
music composed by Perry Reed, '07. 
An amateur stage was perfectly 
equipped in one end of our large 
dining hall. We gave the play twice. 
The first evening about forty of our 
fair friends were present who assign- 
ed us much sincere praise for our 
successful and in this place, very 
unusual entertainment. The following 
evening the play was repeated before 
some of our alumni, parents of Delta 
U men, and a number of our friends 
wlio reside in the city. Our second 
effort was, if possible, rewarded with 
greater appreciation and applause. 
We naturally felt quite elated over 
the outcome of our efforts. 

The chapter house plan is still a 
vital matter with us. We feel that 
with the alumni back of us it is 
bound to be successful. Occasionally 
we receive a splendid, encouraging 
letter from some alumnus which 
causes our stock of enthusiasm to ad- 



vance several points. We are cer- 
tainly persevering and with the help 
of our graduated brothers we shall 
certainly come out with colors flying 
high and the chapter house plan on a 
thoroughly solid basis. 

On the evening of February 2 our 
Annual State Banquet will occur at 
Indianapolis. We are going down 
with the expectation of meeting every 
Delta U in the state. We desire that 
this banquet may beget so much en- 
thusiasm that Delta Upsilon may 
flourish in Indiana as she never 
has before. Not only do we want to 
flz our chapter house plan on a solid 
foundation but we also wish to enlist 
the co-operation of our alumni in gpt- 
ting a line on many of the new men 
who will enter De Pauw from the 
various parts of the State nest

THE past few months have seen 
a great turning point for the 
Harvard Chapter in the celebration 
of its twenty-fifth birthday, an oc- 
casion which was fittingly obserr- 
ed by a very successful and memor- 
able banquet. The end of the first 
quarter-century of its existence sees 
the Harvard Chapter firmly establish- 
ed, with an honorable record behind 
it, an enthusiastic backing of gradu- 
ates, many of whom haye made their 
mark in the world, and a unique and 
respected position among Hanrard 
clubs, gained by its uniformly high 
standing in scholarship and charac- 
ter, and to the great success of our 
Bllzabethan plays. 

AS regards scholarship, the pres- 
ent year is wrll up to our standard. 
Holcomb, Hurlin, Jones, Briggs, 
Thayer and Underhill, from 1906, 
and Haring, '07, are in Pbi Beta 
Kappa, while at the recent award of 
academic distinctions, no less than 
twenty prizes were carried off by 
Delta U's. In other intellectual fields, 
Brackett is President of the Chess 
Club, and he and Johnson played on

th€ team against Yale; Hirsdi was a 
^Varsity debater against Princeton, 
and Holoombe was on his class team; 
and at the recent Musical Club Con- 
cert. Several of Hurlin's composi- 
tions received merited applause. In 
the social field. Keeling and Brumley 
are on the Junior Dance Committee, 
and Holcombe has been elected to 
the Hasty Pudding dub. In athletics, 
Kempner is on the baskeitball team, 
and Oring, Holmes, and MacAusland 
are on the squad, while Burton is 
captain of his class hockey team. 

The great event of the spring term 
is our annual play, for which we 
will this year revive Thomas Hey- 
wood's comedy, "The Wise Woman of 
Hogsdon," one of the best, though 
little known, of the Pre-Shakesper- 
ian dramas. The play has not been 
revived since it was first produced, 
and our choice has met with univer- 
sal approval. At tliis writing, the 
cast has not yet been selected, but 
the chief role will undoubtedly be 
taken by Hurlin, who made a great 
success in last year's play. Per- 
formances will be given in Cambridge 
and Boston, and at Wellesley College, 
and in conclusion, the chapter ex- 
tends a cordial invitation to all bro- 
thers past and present to attend the 
graduates' night performance, at 
Brattle Hall, Cambridge, on March 
26th.

THE installation of our chapter 
occurred on the evening of De- 
cember 21, 1905. On account of 
examinations it was impossible for 
many of our brothers irom other 
clhapters to be present. We regret- 
ted this very much, as we had hoped 
that a large number of them would 
be with us on that occasion. A num- 
ber of our alumni members were 
back for the event to which they 
had looked forward for three years. 

Our chapter really began its ex- 
istence with the new year. We num- 
ber twenty-six undergraduates and 
two alumni. Harman, '02, and Mal- 
colm, '02, both instructors in Engin- 
eering, are rooming in the house and 
taking an active interest in the chap- 
ter. 

We had five freshmen who were 
taken in as charter members of the 
chapter. Since then we have pledged 
one man, T. W. Samuels of East St 
Louis. All of these men are promis- 
ing. Wacaser was regular end on 
the freshman eleven, and is 'Varsity 
matesial. Hendricks is a member of 
the University Band. Samuels is on 
the debating squad and will in all 
probability make the University 
team. Taylor is showing up well In 
baseball practice. 

The football season was rather dUK 
couraging, as the material was light. 
Three of our men. Rump, '06, Brad- 
ley, '07, and Stewart, '08, were 
awarded "I's". 

Baseball practice began immedl- 
ately after the Christmas vacation.

are much brighter than they were at 
this time laat year when only one 
veteran reported. Demmitt, '0/, who 
played right field last year and Was- 
son, '08, who was substitute pitcher, 
are out for the team. Wacaser, '09,

THB past three weeks have been

anything but low. The mid-year exam-

the second term begins Monday. 

The results of the examinations 
were, on the wliole, satisfactory to 
us, and it looks as though we would 
all be here until June, at least 

The Freshmen are allowed to live 
in fratrrnity houses from now on, 
and three of our Freshmen have 
moved into the house. We have ini- 
tiated six men thus far this year, 
which is better than moat of the fra- 
ternities have done; and we are to 
have another initiation sometime in 
February. At least three more will 
be taken in at that time. An infor-

ON January 23, 1906, one of the 
most significant eventn in the 
history of Marietta College took 
place in the laying of the comer- 
stones of the new Library and Dor- 
mitory. Bro. J. E. Sater, '75, had 
been selected as orator for this oc- 
casion but unfortunately the press 
of business prevented him from being 
present. With two new buildings 
taking definite shape we are made to 
believe that what we are pleased to 
call the Greater Marietta is indeed 
a reality. 

Our chapter has also been 
strengthened by the initiation on 
January 17 of two men whom we 
feel will be a credit to Delta U. 

On Friday evening, December 22, 
was held the annual Christmas ban- 
quet Bro. A. G. Williamson, '98, 
was toastmaster. Toasts were given 
by Bros. H. W. Stanley, '80, L. S.

evening. We entertained our alumni 
who spent the holidays here with 
a dance on December 25. Thirty 
couples were present and a pleasant 
time was had welcoming the fel-

SINCE the last issue of the "Quar- 
terly" we have added three 
names to our chapter roll, of men 
whom we think will strength our 
chapter. 

Christmas exams are over and we 
look back over the past term with 
feelings of both sorrow and Joy — 
sorrow over the days that are gone 
forever and joy at something accom- 
plished. This last term has seen 
us in a better way numerically than 
for three or four years. 

Our chapter has been very active 
in University affairs. Bros. Mc- 
Cnaig, Lindsay, Spafford, Walker and 
Stewart are all on the Ebcecutive 
of the Hockey Club. Bros. Ruttan, 
Baillie and Mather are holding down 
places on the various teams, while 
Bro. Lindsay is playing a stellar 
game In goal for the first team. 
McGill stands an excellent chance of 
winning the Intercollegiate trophy 
again this year. She has beaten 
Queens once but was unforunate 
to lose against Toronto on a small 
rink devoid of ice in places. How- 
ever, the local club is hoping for 
revenge when Toronto visits Mont- 
real in a couple of weeks. 

The McGill Glee and Mandolin 
club has Ju^ returned from a trip 
through Bastem Ontario, having vis- 
ited Morrisburg, Brockville and 
Smith's Falls. The trip was succpss- 
ful in every way except financially. 
Bros. Tom and Will Stewart sang 
in the Glee dug and Bros. McCuaig 
and Pedley played in the Mandolin 
club. 

Our Bighth Annual Banquet was 
held on January 10th at the Place 
Viger Hotel with Bro. McCuaig pre- 
siding and about twenty-five breth- 
ren present The dinner was a great 
success although we were sorry to

The annual Arts Dance takes place

forward to an enjoyable time as this 
will be the only college dance be- 
tween Christmas and Class Day this 
year. 

The Glee and Mandolin club are 
holding their concert a week later 
on February 9th and are hoping to 
make up the small deficit incurred 
on their trip. 

During the last couple of months 
we have been favoured by visits from 
quite a number of brethren of other 
chapters, Bros. Ballard, Mackenzie 
and Irving of Toronto and Whitney 
and McAvity of Harvard being 
among those welcomed.

other chapters a very successful end-

AT the present writing, we are 
nearing the close of the first 
semester of the college year, and 
Michigan Chapter can look with 
satisfaction on the work accomplish- 
ed thus far. The chapter is keeping 
pace with the progress of the Uni- 
versity and is upholding the stand 
it has taken in scholarship, and stu- 
dent activities. 

In the latter we are well repre- 
sented, despite the fact that we lost 
ten strong m^'n by graduation, last 
June. Hal Weeks, '07, played regu- 
lar halfback on the 'Varsity this fall, 
and Chandler, '08, and Gray, '08, 
received "R's" for services on the 
'Varsity reserves. Our prospects in 
track work are equally good. Chand- 
ler, '08, is showing up well in the 
weight events, and Hull, '05, '08, 
Law, is out for the sprints. Gradle, 
'06, is expected to again win the 
Fencing Championship, which he has 
held for two years. He is also presi- 



dent of the Fencing Club, and has 
first place on the team. Several of 
the brothers are expected to make 
their class track teams in the com- 
ing try-outs. 

On the Comedy Club, we are rep- 
resented by Dickey, '06, who is presi- 
dent, and has the leading role, and 
by Cutting, '06, who is manager. 

We have three men, Wilson, '09, 
Spiro, '09, and Weeks, '09, on the 
Freshman Glee Club, the freshman 
honorary society. Hull, '05, '08 law, 
has been initiated into the hui Delta 
Phi, (legal.) Fishleigh, '02, '06 
BSng., has been elected to the Quad- 
rangle Club, honorary. This club is 
composed mainly of members of 
the faculty, and Delta Upsilon still 
has more than twice as many mem- 
bers as any other fraternity in this 
club. Fishleigh is also a member of 
the Vulcan, and of the Michigamua, 
the two senior societies. 

On committees, we have Gradle, 
'06, Senior Pipe and Stein, and 
Toung, '06, Senior Memorial. Broad- 
head, '07, represents us on the Jun- 
ior Hop committee. 

Fishleigh, '06, was elected to the 
senior council. This body has con- 
trol of all student activities and stu- 
dent organizations. 

Dickey, '06, received excellent 
press notices for his skits and mono- 
logues produced in connection with 
the 'Varsity Musical Clubs. 

A very unusual state of affairs 
exists in our chapter this year. We 
have five pairs of brothers. 

We have been favored with many 
visitors recently. Among them were 
Bros. Beck, Chicago, '07, Tanner, 
Cornell, '91, Smith, '04, Johnson, *05, 
Houston, '05, Corbusier, '99, Wright, 
Harvard, '97, MacLaughlin, '03, 
Simpson, '04, and Viger, '05. Dur- 
ing the football season we had the 
privilege of seeing nine of our Wis- 
consin brothers, on tile occasion of 
the Michigan-Wisconsin game and 
the entire Ohio State chapter paid us 
a visit when O. S. U. played here. 

Michigan lost the championship of 
the West in football this year, after 
holding it for four succesive years. 
We saw the end of the season, with 
our goal line still uncrossed. Chicago 
beat us by the score of 2 to 0. It

is a consolation to Michigan chapter 
to know that Chicago had the three 
Delta Upsilon men on the line up. 
The game was well played and the 
glory is fairly theirs. 

We are now looking forward to 
onr annual house party which takes 
place in Fehruary at the time of the 
Junior Hop. The complete success 
of hoth events is proverhial.

MIDDLEBURY* 
Active Membership, 25. 

MTDDLEBURY has the hardest 
part of the college year before 
her just now. The year here is di- 
vided into three terms and as we 
have no basketball team there is 
nothing in the athletic line to dis- 
tract our minds from our studies. 
Therefore the faculty get in their best 
licks on us during this term and we 
have to study some to keep ahead 
of the game. 

On the 26 th of January we gave 
what ^e call our Semi-annual Hop, 
and under the management of Bros. 
Acton and Perkins it was successful. 
We are planning to have another 
little dance in a week or so. These 
dancee are not full dress affairs but 
rather tend toward the shirt-waist 
style, but everyone has a good time 
because the number is small and 
everyone knows everyone else. 

Bros. Percy, '07, Eddy, '08. and 
Viele, '09, are back with us this term 
after nearly a year's absence and 
seem glad to see all the brothers 
again. Bro. Hayford, '09, has re- 
turned after an absence of a part 
of last term. Bro. Waterman, '09, 
has left college to go south with his 
parents. 

At the annual Sophomore Hop 
given at the end of the Fall term 
Delta U was better represented than 
any of the other three fraternities 
and, what is just as important here, 
we had them beaten on girls. There 
is always considerable rivalry along 
that line. 

Middlebury wishes well to every 
brother in Delta U everywhere and 
with these wishes must say goodby 
for another three months.

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



Proctor's term does not expire until 
1911. Largely for family reasons 
Senator Proctor is looking forward 
to closing his term of office. The 
re^oent death of a daughter, coupled 
with the fact that Mrs. Proctor finds 
the climate of Washington unsuit- 
able are the reasons why he will re- 
turn to private life. He also puts 
it on the score <rf years. 'He is now 
in his seventy-fifth year and he 
thinks that after a long, active pub- 
lic career, he is entitled to be placed 
on the retired list.

"Fletcher D. Proctor in all probabil-

mont in 1896. * * His term of 
office would not expire until No-

AT present we of Minnesota are

registering 15 degrees below it is 
no unusual thing to see people scur- 
rying along the icy walks with coat 
collars high and their hands over 
their ears. 

The beginninir of tlie second semes-

and keeping up its various interests 
in college affairs. Several of the 
brothers are taking a prominent part 
in the preparations for the Junior 
Ball, the chief social event of the 
year. On the evening of February 3 
will occur the annual election of the 
athletic board of control. Two bro-

Haney, '03, Medic. '06, retire after 
two years of active and el&cient ser- 
vice on that board. Bros. Lowe and 
Cannavarro have been elected to the 
Boarshead, the junior class honorary 
society. Bro. Wcisel has been electr 
ed a member of Theta Tau, an en- 
grineering society. The Scabbard and

instituted a chapter here, largely 
through the efforts of Bros. Haney 
and Schoutrn. Bro. Weisel has also 
Joined this society. He is acting as 
senior captain of the cadet corps this 
year in which Haney and Schouten 
are Lieut-Colonel and senior major

DECEMBER 8 and 9, Nebraska 
Chapter did herself proud. 
On the 8th we gave the most suc- 
cessful dance and party of the year. 



This being our "annual stunt," 
a large number of old men were 
here, and besides these, we had rep- 
resentatives of other fraternities. 
Bro. Dildine, '06, who is now in the 
Jewelry business, presented us with 
gold plated buttons, bearing the 
monogram and the words "Nebraska 
Chapter." These buttons made quite 
a hit in the University and certainly 
were a great credit to Bro. Dildine. 

Early on the evening of the 9th, we 
initiated the three new men and then 
repaired to the Lindell Hotel, where 
an elaborate banquet was served, 
served. On the toast list were Bros. 
Harrison, '04, McNoun, '04, Davis, 
'06, Tunison, '06, and Stephens, '08. 
Bro. C. T. Knapp, '04« presided over 
the function in his usual felicitous 
manner. Among our alumni who 
were present were Bros. Chambers, 
R. C. Pollard, J. A. Pollard, Knapp, 
Harrison, Green Dildine, Nye, Kile, 
V. A. Lussier, and McNoun; besides 
we had with us Bro. F. C. French* 
Brown, '85. 

We are holding our usual comer 
on college honors. Claude Davis, 
'06, has secured the place of leading 
man in the Senior play, winning out 
over many aspirants. Frank Ander- 
son, '06, was initiated into Phi Delta 
Phi, the honorary law fraternity. He 
was also elected Master of Cere- 
monies of the Ol&cers' Hop, which is 
given annually by the Cadet Ol&cers. 
Bro. Hagensick, '06, was elected to 
membership in Sigma Tau, the engin- 
eer's fraternity. One of the resultant 
pleasures to us of the football season 
was the winning of an "N" by Bro. 
Lundin, '06. In basketball, we have 
an option for sure. Out of the six 
first team men, three are Delta U 
men, and out of the ten men in the 
first squad, we have five. These are 
Moser, E. Hagensick, Winters, L. 
Hagensick, and Sage. 

A sad event was the death of Mr. 
J. P. Walton, father of Bro. Walton, 
'05. Holding a position with the Gen- 
eral Electric Co., at Schenectady, 
Bro. Walton returned to Nebraska 
and was with us until after the fu- 
neral. He reports Bro. Sheldon, '05, 
as being very successful with the 
same company, having Just received 
a substantia] promotion.

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



The matter of fraternity rushing, 
taken up by the Board of Regents, 
has been settled. A committee, con- 
sisting entirely of fraternity men was 
appointed to regulate these matters 
and therefore no harm was done by 
the movement. 

The second semester opens up in 
nice shape. We will have three old 
men back with us — Bugene Brook- 
ings, '01, who will register in the 
College of Law; W. P. Day, who 
graduates this year from the Ciyil 
Bngineering department; and H. L. 
Swan, of the class of '08, who was 
unable to return last fall. This will 
raise the total membership to twenty- 
five and as we have several new men 
hanging fire, it seems probable that 
we shall attain the highest member- 
ship ever reached by the Chapter.

THB chapter house has been quite 
popular for the past week or 
more. We are in the midst of our 
mid-year examinations, so that is 
easily explained. 

Since our fall initiation we have 
been progressing quietly. Our broth- 
ers who attended the convention gave 
us a glowing account of their good 
time. We were all envious. There 
have been a few items of interest; 
one is that Bro. Van Home, '07, son 
of Bro. John G. Van Home, '72, was 
elected football captain for 190b. 
This brings up our representation to 
three. We have hopes of a fourth 
in the near future. Also at the an- 
nual athletic asociation elections we 
were honored with the first vice-presi- 
dency, Bro. Chamberlain, '07, being 
chosen. Besides this office we now 
have upon the executive committee 
Bro. Van Home, '07. football captain; 
Bro. Lillis, '07, baseball captain, and 
Bro. Tlppett, '06, track captain. 

The 19 th of December marked ine 
fortieth aniversary of the founding 
of the New York Chapter and the 
event was celebrated in good fashion 
by a union meeting of the Delta Upsi- 
lon club of New York and the New 
York University Delta U. asociation 
at the University of Pennsylvania 
club in the city on the above date. A 



large and enthusiastic gathering of 
Delta U.'s was there. Including nearly 
the whole of the sister chapters. New 
York and Columbia. The time was 
whiled away in " song, eat and talk." 
If you didn't attend, you missed a 
good time. 

We extend best wishes and frater- 
nal greetings to all, and repeat the 
invitation, "Come and see us."

SINCE the last issue our Chapter 
house at 720 Foster street has 
been redecorated and repapered. 
After a general house-cleaning a gift 
day was held, on which the members 
of the Chapter each presented the 
house with something that was need- 
ed to make the parlors more attrac- 
tive. 

A recent visit by Bro. Theodore 
Whittelsey, a graduate of Williams 
College, who holds a chair in the 
chemistry department here, was 
^uch aprpeciated. 

On the night of December 11th 
we initiated Bros. Redelings and 
Moore. The ceremony took place at 
the Chapter house, the charge being 
delivered by Bro. Harry E. Smoot, 
'03. As this was the second initia-

see the alumni turn out as well as 
they did. A special dinner was

presented neither by the unlTersIty 
nor by the Athletic association, but 
is given directly by the students as a 
token of their appreciation, the funds 
being raised by folnntary snbecrip-

presented to any member of Uie team, 
but they will be given soon. 

At the annual football banquet 
held in the gymnasium, Bro. Gilbreth 
was elected captain of the 1906 team. 
For two years he has been on the 
team, filling sometimes the position 
of left tackle and at other times that 
of fullback. As tackle his position 
was almost invulnerable, and as full- 
back he was a constant ground- 
gainer, generally being called upon 
to make the distance on the third 
down. His unanimous election as 
captain was one that he well merited 
by his steady training and good play- 
ing. 

On the track squad we are well 
represented. Among those of last 
year's team, Bros. Scott and Gilbreth 
are out again for the weights, while 
Bros. Domer and Smoot are doing 
good work at the pole vault Among 
the new material we are represented 
by Bros. Harrold Smoot, Swift and

Bros. Domer and Swift are on the 
basket ball team. 

The University Glee club has on 
its limited roll of membership four 
Delta U.'s — Bros. Shumway, Smoot,

The annual Junior play will occur 
in March. On the cast Bro. Clay 
Smoot takes the leading part. 

Bro. Scott is a member of the In- 
terfrateraity Senior council. 

Bro. Schafer has been filling the 
posit*on of editor in chief on the uni-

At the annual election of officers 
of the Deutsche Gesellschaft, Bro.

THIS writing finds every one deep 
in his mid-winter's work, but 
in spite of the aparent unbroken rou- 
tine of this time of the year there are 
plenty of interests requiring the stu- 
dents' attention. 

Just at present every one is inter- 
ested in the movement to secure a 
students' building for the university. 
Tho need of this has been felt for 
some time, and from all indications 
such a building may be realized in the 
near future. The plans include a 
considerable expenditure in order to 
secure a building of such a nature 
as to be a credit to the university. 

Another matter of particular inter- 
est to fraternity men is the intro- 
ducing of a bill into the State Legis- 
lature providing for the leasing of 
building sites on the campus to the 
different fraternities. It is hoped to 
have this bill passed at the present 
session of the Legislature, and should 
this occur it would mean a great step 
forward in fraternity life at the uni- 
versity.

game, which was one of the best

most successful in the history of the

coming through a very successful 
football season In sp!te of great mis^ 
fortunes, we have been content to 
rest for a while. In football Bro. 
Bennis won his varsity letter. John- 
ston played in a great many of the 
games, and since Stevenson has left 
college he will probably be the var- 
sity quarter next year. 

At present the basketball team of 
the university leads the Intercolle- 
giate league. The candidates for the 
crews have been called out, and pros- 
pects are bright Delta Upsilon is 
represented on the squad by Atkin, 
'07, stroke of last year's varsity 
eight; Bogardus, P. 6., of last year's 
varsity four; Galey, '06, of the 1904 
four; Elliott, '07, and Magree, '08. 
The baseball candidates will soon be 
out, and we have a sure member of 
the team in Johnston, '08, of last 
year's team. Aside from athletics, 
Bro. Galey is on the ivy Ball com- 
mittee. We desire to extend a cor- 
dial invitation to members of the 
other chapters visiting Philadelphia 
to come fee us.

•81 — ^Waldo O. Morse, a lawyer, 
with ol&ces at No. 10 Wall street, 
who has lived in Yonkers for many 
years and made a study of transit 
franchises as granted by this State, 
is at the head of a radical system by 
which prominent citizens of Yonkers, 
aroused by the wretched trolley ser- 
vice which the city receives, have or- 
ganised for the purpose of petition- 
ing the legislature to annul the char- 
ter of the local road and turn over 
its tracks and franchises to the new 
company by condemnation proceed- 
ings. Startling as the plan is, Mr. 
Morse, who is acting as counsel for 
the dissatisfied Yonkers citizens, has 
evolved a method of procedure which 
seems to be brand new in municipal 
government. 

Those who will back the new com- 
pany which hopes to wrest the tran- 
sit franchises of Yonkers from the 
hands of the Belmont-Ryan monop- 
oly say that the franchises of street 
railroad corporations are not exclu- 
sive in this State, and that competing 
companies may be authorized to run 
cars over existing tracks. To prove 
this startling assertion it is said that 
no corporation in the State of New 
York enjoys an exclusive franchise 
by force of law in view of the provi- 
sion of the constitution, in force 
since 1872, which says that the leg- 
islature shall not pass a private or 
local bill granting to any private cor- 
poration, association or individual 
any exclusive privilege, immunity or 
franchise whatever. 

The dissatisfied citizens of Yonkers 
maintain that the lei^slature, upon 
evidence that the Union Railroad 
company is not giving proper 8er> 
vice, may authorize the municipality, 
or any individual or corporation, to

operate vehiciles over any public 
street, even along rails laid by a 
priTate corporation. Only the ques- 
tion of the compensation to be paid 
for the use of such tracks would 
have to be considered. This, it is 
argued, could be fixed by a munici- 
pal or legislative commission.

OUR first term, with its dreaded 
examinations, is past, and our 
Chapter is none the worse. We lost 
no men and had no men seriously 
crippled with conditions. Since our 
last letter Delta U. has sustained her 
place in Rutgers affairs. Bro. De-

Chapter was held In New Brunswick. 
All the undergraduate members ana 
about twenty-five alumni members 
were present, as well as several 
guests from other institutions. 

Our winter activities have not as 
yet rightly begun; but when they do 
we feel sure that Delta U. will "be in 
their midst and that to bless." 

We invoke the greatest blessings 
upon all our fellow chapters, espe- 
cially that of Illinois, which we take 
this opportunity of congratulating.

WB are back again after a de- 
lightful vacation of two 
^weeks. Two weeks spent in outdoor 
recreation — tennis, golf, rowing, 
riding, fishing and surf bathing. 
These have given us almost a second 
.'.summer vacat!on and brought us back 
fit for a semester of hard work. 

The combined Glee and Mandolin 
'Clubs have Just returned from a suc- 
•cessful tour of the southern part of 
the State. Lachmund, '06, is leader, 
;and Kellogg, Ross and Severy are 
rmembers of the Glee club. Owen is 
on the Mandolin club. 

In common with President Roose- 
velt and our other friends of the 
Blast, Stanford is deeply interested 
im the future of football. The situa- 
tion on the Pacific coast is not so 
critical as it seems to be in the Bast, 
for it is the boast of the two great 



universities of the coast — Stanfor4 
and California — tnat neither profes- 
sionalism nor brutality mar the game 
as played here. 

The tennis men are already hard 
at work practicing for the February 
try-outs. Baseball and track will ^e 
claiming the attention of the univer-

SINCE our last letter much has 
happened of importance both 
to the university and the Chapter. 
Of the former, the record of the foot- 
ball team was perhaps the most in- 
teresting to the students. After win- 
ning every match in the Intercolle- 
giate Union, the team played Ottawa 
City "Rough Riders" for the cham- 
pionship of Canada before the largest 
and most enthusiastic crowd ever 



i66 



THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



gathered in Toronto. The yarslty 
team» who won on condition and 
brains, were managed and captained 
till the last game by MacPherson, '07. 

The students of the faculty of arts 
and applied science were in a con- 
dition of unrest, if not absolute insur- 
rection, for a large part of the past 
term, owing to the action of the dis- 
cipline committee. Two years in 
science were in fact out on strike for 
some time. Tne troubles are set- 
tled now and we all look for a re- 
organization of the disciplinary 
methods in the near future. A com- 
mission was appointed some time ago 
by the government to make a thor- 
ough study of the situation in this 
and other large institutions and re- 
port exhaustively, recommending 
necessary changes. The commission 
has Just finished hearing suggestions 
et cetera, and expects to report soon. 
Bro. MacCurdy, '66, and Bro. Mac- 
kenzie, '96, were members of the ath- 
letic commission appointed by the 
main body to consider the athletic 
situation. 

Hockey is the only game at To- 
ronto now. Unfortunately up to the 
present the winter has been so miid 
that ice has been scarce and the team 
without proper practice. This is par- 
ticularly hard luck, as we have bet- 
ter material than ever before, per- 
haps. Bros. Thoms, '07; Harold 
Clark, '09, and Herbert Clark, '08, 
are on the team. 

As was stated in the last letter, 
we had good hopes of landing new 
men. As a matter of fact, our suc- 
cess in rushing was beyond our ex- 
pectations, as the above list shows. 
This was particularly encouraging 
since it was the first year that we 
have attempted serious and system- 
atic rushing. 

A committee has had In prepara- 
tion for some time a pamphlet deal- 
ing with the general history and con- 
dition of the Chapter, to be distrib- 
uted to all the alumni. A copy will 
also be sent to every chapter. It is 
expected that it will be ready in a 
few days. 

Our annual dance was held on No- 
vember 23 with its usual success. 

The Chapter is, according to many 
alumni, in a stronger position than 
ever before.

Since writing our letter three im- 
portant events have occurred that 
necessitate a postscript. 

On the 26 th of January, Toronto 
met McGill in their first hockey 
match together, and contrary to most 
expectations defeated them nicely, 
thus placing the standing of the 
league a three-cornered tie. The 
work of our representatives was 
specially commended by the press. 
The following night saw the annual 
dinner of the Chapter. It was very 
successful, there being about sixty 
present. One noticeable feature was 
the good speaking of the new mem- 
bers. It augurs well. We were glad 
to have with us Bro. McCuaig of Mo- 
OIll, the manager of the hockey team, 
who stayed over for dinner. 

The award for the Rhodes scholar- 
ship has just been announced, and we 
are all rejoicing in the success of 
Bro. R. C. Reade, '05, who captured 
the coveted honor. The last Rhodes 
scholar from Toronto was Bro. B. R. 
Paterson, '02, who has distanced all 
competitors in tennis at Oxford. Bro. 
Reade makes the fourth D. U. schol- 
arship winner to go to Oxford in five 
competitors. He has a brilliant rec- 
ord behind him in scholarship, ath- 
letics and literary work.

this* On the track team we have 
Bros. Boyd, '08, Coe, '09, and

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



In the recent inter-class basket- 
ball series, which was won by the 
Juniors* Bros. Hall, '06, Derry, '07,

THE JEROME-HUGHES BANQUET- 

By Arthur C. Perry, Jr., New York, '92, Historian, 

C UCH a meeting as the testimonial banquet to Brothers William Travers 
^ Jerome, Amherst, '82, and Charles E. Hughes, Brown, '81, given 
by the Delta Upsilon Qub of New York on March 23, 1906, would 
tax the descriptive powers of even the best of reporters. The ability of 
your Historian being extremely limited he was glad to sub-let his contract 
and muster in several good brothers to cover the details. He acknowl- 
edges their help and, in addition, the aid of Bro. J. B. Richardson, 
Williams, '00. 

It was one of the most notable gatherings of college men New York 
has ever witnessed. The royal banquet hall of the Hotel Savoy was 
taxed to the limit of its capacity by the 238 Delta Upsilon men from the 
five quarters of the globe (four quarters in the United States and one in 
(^anada, if you question my artithmetic). Just the right kind of a dinner 
— the kind that we expect at the Savoy — was served to us, and yet I 
wonder if any of us, considering our appetite for the intellectual feast, 
k-new or cared what we were eating. 

After the invocation by Brother Ezra S. Tipple, D.D., Syracuse, '84, 
we started in upon the meal to the usual accompaniment of fraternity 
songs and chapter cheers. Not more than three courses had been served 
when Toastmaster Starr J. Murphy, Amherst, '81, introduced Brother 
Hughes, explaining that, owing to the great pressure of his work, the 
Armstrong Insurance Committee at that moment being in session at his 
home, he could be present only a few minutes. 

CHARLES K HUGHES WAS BRIEF. 

Brother Hughes spoke with his customary charming directness, 
expressing his thanks for the reception accorded him and his regrets 
that important duty prevented his remaining throughout the evening. 
"I have exceeded my loading," he said, "and the contingent reserve is 
far from adequate." His serious theme was Delta Upsilon as the first 
and foremost influence of his own early life, but his remarks sparkled 



In justice to the special reporters we must express our regret thmt Imdc of space necessitated a 
libera] use of the blue pencil.— Bi>. 



174 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

with witticisms from beginning to end. The head table was referred 
to a conjunction of luminaries and the star (Brother Murphy) ; the audi- 
ence as a distinguished array or policy-holders; and the advertising 
section of Brother Ridgway's magazine as an inflamed appendix. 

Looking at the District Attorney, Brother Hughes said : "I used to 
meet my friend, Mr. Jerome, at Amherst, where he conducted 'Jo'^^ Doe 
proceedings' in defiance of the faculty — the proceedings that have made 
his administration so successful." In closing he said: "Heretofore I 
have paid annual dividends to this club, but tonight for the first and 
only time in my life I must declare myself in favor of a deferred divi- 
dend policy." Brother Hughes' speech brought every man to his feet, 
and prolonged cheers greeted Brother Ridgway's toast to "the next 
Governor of New York." 

"I attribute your good wishes to the spirit of fraternity and good 
fellowship," said Brother Hughes, with instant self-possession. "I must, 
however, leave political aspirations where they belong," and looked 
toward District- Attorney Jerome and Lieutenant-Governor Bruce. 

Brother Hughes' words seemed to electrify the atmosphere and 
throughout the evening, from speech to speech, the intangible current 
passed with magnetic might, stirring each speaker to his best effort 

Brother Erman J. Ridgway, Northwestern, '91, gave one of his 
characteristic speeches, a combination of enthusiasm and reserve, optim- 
ism and pessimism, sarcasm, humor and seriousness. 

PRESIDENT RIDG^AY^ ADDRESS OF ^TELGOME. 

"As president of the Delta Upsilon Qub it gives me great pleasure 
to greet you, although my enjoyment was partially spoiled when I learned 
that I was not to be toastmaster. The Executive Committee has played 
Senate to my Roosevelt, and I have to submit Jerome told the Com- 
mittee he would come only on condition that Ridgway was not toast- 
master, although I could have introduced Jerome as well as I did Lawson 
at the St. Louis meeting. 

"At that time I said: "When the country needed a Father, Wash- 
ington was raised : when the country needed Liberty, Lincoln was raised : 
and now in its dire extremity, the country has raised Lawson.' And 
then Jerome arose and said, 'Evidently Lawson has been raised to raise 
Hell.' 

"In addition to the large crowd here, there is one Delta U. man I 
should like to welcome, and that is Brother Rupert Hughes. He writes 
me he is on the road with his successful play, and that he is having 
the trouble that all of us men of talent have — the critics look at the 
defects with a microscope and then tell about them through a megaphone. 



THE JEROME-HUGHES BANQUET. 175 

"We magazine men are hearing from the critics. I have an idea that 
the general impression is abroad that some periodicals are in somewhat 
bad business. It's about the turn of the magazines to get what's coming 
to us but while we're getting it I don't think we'll keep as still as some 
people who have been getting it from us. Back of all this publicity 
for high crimes and misdemeanors there is purpose beyond advertising. 

"But to return to dub matters. This gathering is one for the admin- 
istration to be proud of. The club has seen nothing like it since the 
convention banquet in 1903. 

"Again I welcome you and again I say I am sorry I am not toast- 
master ; for I would introduce Jerome as a man with his heart on his left 
side, his conscience on both sides, his head balanced in the middle, and 
red blood according to the white man's standard." 

Reported by W. W. Jackson, Columbia, '92. 

President Ridgway then introduced the toastmaster. Brother Mur- 
phy, who began by saying: "The toastmaster's position is a cinch. He 
sits up here among the wax works — " and the laughter prevented the 
completion of the sentence. After telling several entertaining stories he 
read telegrams of greeting from the Indiana Alimini Association and 
from the Delta Upsilon Qub of Philadelphia, both assembled at their 
annual banquets. After mentioning District Attorney Jerome's two per- 
sonal victories for civic righteousness he said that Brother Jerome 
needed no formal introduction. 

DISTRICT ATTORNEY JEROME'S SPEECH. 

Without giving Brother Jerome's entire speech it would be impossi- 
ble to do it justice. He opened his mind to his friends and brothers in 
Delta Upsilon in regard to many questions now uppermost in the current 
thought in connection with his own official position. That portion of the 
I)ress, commonly termed yellow, which has been assailing him in his 
conduct of the office of District Attorney was completely routed. 

Received with a storm of enhusiastic applause. Brother Jerome began 
with a glowing tribute to Charles E. Hughes. 

"I have one regret," he said, "that Brother Hughes could not be 
with us. For as far as my voice can carry any approbation of him as a 
man and a lawyer and of the work he could do, I not only wanted to 
say it, but I wanted to say it to his face. It is an easy thing to conduct 
an investigation for a legislative committee. Every man is at the mercy 
of its counsel. But the magnificent restraint, the lawyer-like and man- 
like way in which Mr. Hughes conducted that investigation, never for 
one moment descending to cheap claptrap plays, can never be forgotten. 

"No tribute that can be paid him would be adequate. He had ever 
before him the approbation of his professional brethren and not the 
approbation of the yellow press, and that brings me to that situation 




176 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

now confronting us about which I want to say a word as to our duty 
as educated men toward public opinion. 

"Public opinion goes hither and yon like a ship, but in the long 
course of time it is sweet and sane and sound and will make its port; 
but it lies to you to see that its tacks are no longer than they ought 
to be. It is wasted power, that sentiment of the community that goes 
up one trail and back again to another. Today all through this nation 
what do we find — 2l case of absolute hysteria. 

"Gentlemen, no nation ever built its national life on the warp and 
woof of perjury, tort and larceny; and yet today you would think that 
this g^eat country we love was setting its course on this foundation. 

"David Graham Phillips is now writing about the 'Treason of the 
Senate' for a magazine. Treason is an ugly word. It is punishable by 
death. We have got so used to superlatives that our own racy tongue 
has become debauched and we have no superlatives left. The Senate of 
the United States — is it a treasonable body? 

"Because some men are there who ought not to be there — some who 
bought the position — shall we say that the governors of our body politic 
are guilty of treason? Base men are there, but when in the bright, 
breezy sentiments of modern newspaper life you assert there is treason, 
you either lie or misconceive the meaning of the English language. * * 

"Much of this," he continued, "is due to the newspapers, and again 
not. In this community one or two stand out as vultures that seek their 
carrion, and seek it with a sense of recognition. The others try to be 
clean. But standing before them is the financial success of these two. 
The people demand hot stuff at so much per, and their needs are met by 
a class of publications whose text is dictated by their counting rooms 
and by their counting rooms alone. 

"Many of the good ones go wrong at times, but I believe that the 
press as a whole strives to do right and voice public sentiment. 

"I have no words but words of praise for the honest papers. In our 
days criticism of public officers is right — stinging criticism if it is just, 
and he who is not a fool can learn from it And if he is a fool and 
cannot learn he ought to take his medicine." 

Referring to the insistence of the press that the trustees of the life 
insurance companies be indicted for misappropriation of the funds of the 
a)mpanies, and to his own stand on this question. Brother Jerome said : 

"How far this hysteria has gone ! See in this moming^s paper the 
words of men like Roger Pryor, a former Judge of the Supreme Court, 
a good man, upright man, I believe, but swept off his feet. An educated 
man feeding fuel to a flame which may be just or may not be just 

"There is only a handful of men iti this community today who 
know whether it is just or not. He says that Section 544 of the Penal 



THE JEROME-HUGHES BANQUET. 177 

("ode says that this is a crime. He is willing to talk so carelessly of 
the reputations of his fellow-men that he forgets to put into his state- 
ment that that section says : Trustees appointed by will, deed, order of 
the court, or other instrument in writing,' none of which Trustees of 
insurance companies are. Careless, you say, for a former Judge of the 
Supreme Court to do such a thing?" 

Speaking of Alton B. Parker, former Chief Justice of the Supreme 
Court, he continued : "He goes down among our Southern brethren and 
says the way to convict is to convict — note the judicial note. He says 
there is not a Grand Jury that would not indict these men. Gentlemen, 
it is because the Grand Jury would indict these men with or without 
evidence that there is one public official in New York who will not 
{♦ermit them to indict them without good and legal evidence. 

"I am going to see that those who violate the criminal law shall be 
punished, but the way to convict is by evidence. 

"I feel bitterly, my friends, in one way — not personally, but I feel 
bitterly that my people should be swept off their feet by such circtun- 
stances as these. Conceive how little the educated man thinks when an 
editor writes an editorial addressed to the District Attorney appealing 
to him on his reputation. The District Attorney who does anything in 
his work with a view to enhance his reputation does worse than wrong; 
he does something for which he should be removed, for he commits a 
crime'. 

"Gentlemen, it is up to you. I leave with you a sentiment in which 
I hope you will all join in this crisis: Not halt, but steady!" 

Reported by Edward H. Brush^ Columbia, '87. 

The day following the dinner all the papers published Brother 
Jerome's speech, some of them giving a resume of parts of it, apparently 
colored by a feeling that in his criticisms of certain "yellow journals" he 
liad attacked the press as a whole. But after a day for reflection opinion 
seemed to change as was shown by an editorial in the Times which 
began: 

"Mr. Jerome's phillipic at the dinner of the Delta Upsilon Qub was 
a notable symptom of the rising reaction against yellowness in speech 
and writing, against excess in thought and act, against the hysteria 
lately prevailing. * * * Mr. Jerome * * is a natural and quali- 
fied spokesman against these outbreaks of perfervid passion. * * * 
They have deserved Mr. Jerome's words of censure." 

In introducing Lieutenant Governor M. Linn Bruce, Rutgers, '84, 
the toastmaster recalled the fact that Delta Upsilon was the first Greek 
letter fraternity to give a President to the United States, Garfield, 
WUliams, '56.

LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR BRUGES TRIBUTE. 

Brother Bruce also had a word to say of Brother Hughes, remarking 
that however much or little he was known by the people and the press 
before the insurance inquiry, "Charley Hughes was no stranger to the 
bar and the bench of the State." He made a stirring address comparing 
the political conditions of thirty years ago unfavorably with those of the 
present day. His optimism was shown dearly throughout his speech. 
In closing Brother Bruce said : "Whatever I am so far as a college man 
and a professional man is due to the influence thrown about me in my 
undergraduate days by my brothers of the Rutgers Chapter of Delta 
Upsilon." 

THE OTHER SPEAKERS* 

Deputy Commissioner of Police, William Mathot, New York,, '91, 
compared the conditions of public affairs in the United States with those 
existing in England, France, Germany and Italy, where the possibilities 
of corruption, due to the lack of publicity and connivance of government, 
far exceeded anything to be found here, and the exposure of secret g^aft 
by the press in this country was some compensation for the evils of 
intemperate public clamor and journalistic hysteria. He would impress 
upon his brethren the necessity of beginning at the foundation of society, 
the home, the teaching of children the principles of right living, so that 
they might g^ow up with high ideals of conduct, and not with the idea 
that everything depended upon money and success. With such moral 
tiaining in our homes, the g^aft and corruption found in public affairs 
would be impossible. 

Major-General Henry C. Merriam, U. S. A., Colby, '64, expressed 
his thanks for the welcome extended him, both personally and on behalf 
of his branch of the service. Before going to college, his parents had 
admonished him above all things always to be open and frank, and Delta 
Upsilon, with its principles of justice and non-secrecy had from the first 
attracted him. All through life in the army and elsewhere, he had 
found that non-secrecy was always best in tfie end. "The soldier of 
Delta Upsilon," he said, "bears the motto, 'Ouden Adelon* on his shield 
and *Dikaia Upotheke' on his sword; he goes straight into the face of 
the enemy and 'Hughes' his way to victory." 

Charles L. White, LL.D., Brown, '87, President of Colby, spoke to 
us of the snow and ice of his home state, Maine, and of its "furtail" 
climate. He gave us an account of his reception on the eve of his inaugu- 
lation and recounted briefly the history of the chapter in war times, when 
it had to close its hall because all its members (including General Mer- 
riam) enlisted for the war. He compared Delta U. to the summit of 
an Alpine mountain, with a wide spreading view on all sides. In like 
manner Delta Upsilon widens the horizon. The ambition of the Delta 



THE JEROME-HUGHES BANQUET. 17^ 

U. man is to do something. His aim is not success, but service, and 
with such men as Hughes and Jerome to carry on that ideal he found no 
room for discouragement, no ground for hysteria.

THE CROWD. 

Well, it was a crowd — ^a good big, jolly old time Delta U. crowd — a 
sight to make a man's heart glad. The old fellows were back in large 
numbers, reviving memories with a zest and the younger men were out 
iu force and all chock full of enthusiasm and delight at the conspicuous 
success of the affair. 

The speakers' table was decorated with a border of college pennants. 
It was inspiring to see the line of strong, forceful men of the day at this 
long board, while the laughing, chatting groups of alumni and under- 
graduates at the many small tables formed an attractive picture. 

We were all glad to be there to mingle in the college yells, to sing 
the songs ; to march in the parade around the banquet room ; to hear the 
thoughts of brainy men and to feel afresh the throb and beat of royal 
brotherhood. 

It was worth the price of the dinner just to feel the friendliness of 
Tipple as he went around from table to table and from friend to 
friend ; and "Doc." Brickner — same old "Doc." ; and the Eidlitz brothers 
four of them, true and tried; Perry and Waite of scholarly bearing;

of the lot was a good fellow — and we were all glad to be there — ^yes, it 
was a rattling old Delta U. crowd.

WORDS FROM THE ABSENT ONES. 

Letters of congratulation were received from many alumni and 
clubs, all expressing regret at being unable to attend. Telegrams were 
read from the Delta Upsilon Qub of Philadelphia and the Indiana 
Alumni Association. 

President W. H. P. Faunce, D.D., LL.D., of Brown University, 
wrote from Kentucky: 

"Profoundly I regret that absence In the South will prevent my presence 
at the Delta Upsilon dinner to Charles E. Hughes and William Travera 
Jerome. I have written before this to each of them my deep sense of the 
distinguished public service he has rendered. E^specially I regret that I 
cannot be there to say a word regarding my life-long friend, Charles B. 
Hughes. It seems only yesterday that he and I were college students 
together, roomng in Old Hope College, and dreaming of the years before 
us. During the last ten years I have frequently said he was the ablest 
lawyer of his age in New York but I did not know whether the world 
';vould ever find it out. But the world has now discovered him. No other 
name is known to the people of the United States so well as his, save the 
name of President Roosevelt. His is no transient fame, no wave of popu- 
larity. His is the gratitude of all honest men, 1. e., of 99 out of 100 of the 
American people. He has done very much to quell the anarchy born of 
injustice, and to still the social discontent which has justly been roused in 
the presence of corporate falsehood and greed. Let every Delta U. man. 
stand by him with a tangible sympathy which shall nerve his arm when the 
next blow is to be struck." 

Major Holman Day, Colby, '87, who was entertaining Mr. Jerome 
K. Jerome and Mr. Charles Battell Loomis, wrote : 

"It is with deep regret indeed that I am forced to inform you that I 
cannot be in New York Friday evening. I can conceive of no grreater pleas- 
ure than the one in store for those fortunate enough to meet and listen to 
the gentlemen whom you have named in your letter." 

From Bishop Henry Spellmeyer, D.D., LL.D., New York, '66, 
writing from Kansas under date of March 2, 1906: 



THE JEROME-HUGHES BANQUET. i8i 

"I would be glad to hear our Brothers Hughes and Jerome speak for 
both of them greatly honor our Fraternity. My best wishes for the success 
of the dinner." 

The thirteen members of the Oxford University Delta Upsilon Qub 
showed that distance had not lessened their interest, by writing: 

"Having heard of the dinner to be given by the New York Delta Upsilon 
Club to two most Intrepid Delta Upsilon men, we, as brothers In the Oxford 
University Delta Upsilon Club, deem It a privilege and honor, on this occa- 
sion to extend to Brothers William Travers Jerome and Charles B. Hughes, 
and to their hosts, our heartiest congratulations. We recognize. In common 
with all, how signal a service these two brothers have rendered to the cause 
of social progress. Although we are In a foreign land at Bngland'e most 
ancient university, we derive our chief inspiration from the example of such 
Delta Upsilon men, and feel an ever Increasing gratitude to that Fraternity 
which they have so conspicuously honored.

NEWS FROM THE PAOFIC COAST* 

Berkley, Cal., April 26, 1906. 
Dear Brother Goldsmith : 

I am sending herewith a few items of alumni news. I had 
quite a number of items for you but they went up in smoke, so I guess 
you'll have to be content this time with what I am sending. I am sending 
}ou the chapter house article. Excuse the use of red ink. My type- 
written copy was lost in the earthquake shuffle, and my black ink as well. 

As far as I know, no serious damage was done either the California 
or Stanford houses by the earthquake nor have I heard of any of the 
fraters being killed or injured, although it is of course pretty soon yet 
to hear from everyone. 

Stanford has closed until next September. California has practically 
closed. All the Seniors in good standing will be graduated without 



i84 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

examinations. Very little damage was done by the earthquake at Gili- 
fomia, but the damage at Stanford was very severe. The University of 
California Gidets have been doing splendid service. 

Yours fraternally, 

R. L. Langworthy. 

Stanford University, Cal., April 27, 1906. 

Dear Brother Goldsmith: 

I am enclosing a very short chapter letter and a very short 
leport of conditions at Stanford. I would like to be able to send a longer 
report and a better chapter letter, but we are all too busy to write more 
than a few words. 

Your letter of sympathy was greeted with a hearty round of applause 
when read at the breakfast table this morning. And the baker's dozen 
oi us who are still here at Stanford send our thanks as well as the appre- 
ciation of the whole Chapter. 

It is hard for us of Stanford to realize that we have suffered very 
little. As we escaped into the street in the early morning and watched 
the buildings of the university topple and fall, it seemed as if our world 
were crumbling to pieces, as if there could be no greater desolation than 
ours. But our loss has faded before the greater woes of our neighbors. 
In seeing and trying to alleviate the terrible suffering of the people of 
San Francisco we have found that our troubles are very slight. 

On the campus only two lives were lost. At Encina Hall one man 
was killed by the falling of a large ornamental chimney, and when the 
great stone stack of the Engineering Building fell it killed one of the 
engineers. 

The Memorial Church, which cost $1,200,000, was wrecked by the 
tailing of its tower. The Memorial Arch was shaken to pieces. The 
new Library and Gymnasium buildings, valued at $750,000 and $500,000 
respectively, are utter wrecks as the enclosed pictures show. The Chem- 
istry Building is seriously damaged, but only a small amount of appar- 
atus was destroyed. Part of the Outer Quadrangle will have to be 
rebuilt, but the "Inner Quad" is almost intact. Encina Hall and Roble 
Hall, the large dormitories are only slightly injured, and of the fraternity 
houses and dwellings the Chi Psi is the only one seriously damaged. 

President Jordan, talking to the men of the university a few hours 
after the earthquake, said : **The real University consists of the profes- 
sors and the students." Stanford University, then, is uninjured. The 
laboratories and class-rooms are among the least injured of the build- 
ings, the grejitest damage being confined to the uncompleted buildings 
and the ornamental structures. As far as instruction is concerned we 



THE NEW SONG BOOK 185 

will be next August exactly where we were last week. But the "Stone 
Age," instead of being ended, will last for another decade. 

Our Chapter has not suffered at all. The Chapter House, which 
was built under the personal supervision of Brother A. B. Clark, Syra- 
cuse, '88, is so solidly constructed that the only damage it sustained was 
the loss of a few yards of plaster and the tops of three chimneys. 

We have not heard directly from the California Chapter but, know- 
ing that Oakland and Berkeley are practically uninjured, we feel no 
anxiety about them. 

Yours fraternally, 

D. M. Greer. 

With the closing of Stanford University work upon the restoration 
cf the damaged buildings has already begun. In Dr. Jordan's quiet 
statement, "I get a little tired sometimes, but it is all right," the whole 
situation is summed up. Stanford will be rebuilt, and in the same plod- 
ding way it was built before, on the income of its endowment alone, little 
by little through the years. — Oakland Tribune, 



THE NEW SONG BOOK. 

Haddon Heights, N. J., April 16, 1906. 
Dear Brother Editor: 

Let me talk about the new Fraternity song book in the form of a 
[>ersonal letter, for then we can gossip to our hearts' content, without 
having the sword of some critical Damocles over our heads, ready to 
drop if we let down the bars of correct essay form. Writing correct 
essays, however, isn't half as enjoyable as planning about the new song 
book. 

Every one had felt for a long time that the old book was a little 
short in the sleeves and threadbare for a growing, prosperous Fraternity, 
but it was not until last vear that the Convention advised a new outfit. 
Whether the Executive Council, in choosing the editor for this book, 
was inspired or misguided, a few months will show, but let me tell you 
confidentially, that any evil influence can be easily neutralized by sending 
in such a deluge of good songs that his own limitations will be lost sight 
of in a glorious glare of real inspired ditties. 

If the new song book is to have one dominant note, it is hoped that 
it will be that of comprehensiveness in expressing the broad idealism 
and varied traditions that cluster about the Fraternity's history and 
growth, as well as expanding the usefulness of her songs to reach the 
chapters from coast to coast. Each chapter has been asked to pay its 
tithe in songs, and a labored pilgrimage through the vast tomb-like 



i86 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

vastes of the Decennial rewarded my eyes with the vision of "men who 
have done things" in verse. These have been pleaded with to invoke 
their Muses to glorify Delta U. Several have signified their willingness, 
a few have already sent in the finished product, and others have sadly 
confessed being divorced from the flame of youthful days. All, however, 
are a unit in saying they are glad to know that a new book is projected. 

Favorable answers promising co-operation, and enthusiasm shown in 
the collaboration by various chapter representatives, make a successful 
book a certainty. Not only will it be replete with songs of the right 
kind but the artistic features are being carefully studied and worked 
out. One portion of the book will contain the "one leading song" of 
every Delta U. college, enabling us in times of general assemblies, or 
when far-off brothers are visiting us, to attest the highest kind of college 
loyalty by voicing others' songs. 

At the present rate of progress the book will be out in time for 
the "Fall Opening," or at the latest, for the annual Convention,^ when 
we can "whoop 'er up for Delta U." The work is being held up some- 
what by several laggard chapters who have withheld data for which they 
have been solicited. I am confident, however, that they will shortly 
wake up. 

The book will be financed by the Executive Qjundl, and as it means 
an outlay of about a thousand dollars, tlie need of prompt action by the 
chapters in taking the books is apparent, so that a large sum of money 
v/ill not be tied up for any length of time. The chapter assistants who 
have ably and loyally assisted me so far, I am sure will urge this neces- 
sity upon their own quota of men. Advance subscriptions for the book 
can be sent to me direct by alumni. 

In conclusion, let me urge every man who can burnish up a rhyme 
to try his hand for Delta U. There's always room for one. 

Fraternally, 

William Otto Miller^ Pennsylvania, '04 



THE COMING CONVENTION- 

T UST before commencement time pamphlets will be sent all the chap- 
^ ters, regarding the Middlebury convention, and it is urged that 
each chapter stir up its undergraduates and alumni to attend this con- 
vention, for Middlebury desires to be hospitable to the largest crowd in 
the history of the fraternity. October 24, 25 and 26 are the dates set, 
and all business sessions will be held in Middlebury, Vt. This town is 
situated in the Champlain Valley, one hundred thirty miles from Montreal, 
two hundred miles from Boston, two hundred sixty-seven miles from 
New York, and one hundred eight miles from Troy; and with fast 



MR. JEROME AND THE THUGS 187 

through trains and the rates low, we look for many more than the regular 
delegates. Arrangements have been made for housing all visitors com- 
fortably and prices will be so low that no brother can afford to stay 
away. The Yankee undergraduates have devised some unusual features, 
and the whole convention will be in contrast with recent city meetings. 
All visitors are asked to remain over Saturday, October 27th, when it 
is planned to hold a "fraternity hunt in the wilds of the Green Mountains ; 
the brothers will be permitted to shoot at anything in sight, including 
each other, and the day will be ended by a game dinner at a famous old 
\'ermont inn, followed by a stage ride down the mountains for the 
midnight trains. Judge E. R. Sherman and President Fletcher D. Proc- 
tor will be present throughout the convention, and, as it is the fiftieth 
anniversary of the chapter's foundation, the Middlebury alumni will 
attend in numbers. 

Samuel B. Botsford, Middlebury, 1900, 

Chairman of Committee in Charge. 



MR* JEROME AND THE THUGS. 

From the Indianapolis News, 

The attacks on Mr. Jerome by certain newspapers have been out- 
rageous. And speaking generally, it has seemed to us for some time 
that public opinion in New York city, if it is at all reflected in the papers, 
is exceedingly uncertain and fickle. Here was a man who had done his 
duty in office so honestly and bravely that the people of New York with- 
out distinction of party re-elected him, and they did it although the man 
had no party organization behind him. Then all at once because this 
man differs with certain popular opinions as to what the law is, and 
refuses to take his orders from certain newspapers, he is at once written 
down as corrupt, and it is assumed that he believes in such conduct as 
that of which the insurance men were guilty. It seems to us that in 
this case the community, rather than the officer, is to be condemned. 



EDITORIAL. 

A FTER a large amount of correspondence the Executive Council has 
finally completed the district organization with the exception of 
selecting a secretary for one district. The districts with the officers 
named are as follows : 

District I (New England) — President, Qarence A. Bunker, Har- 
vard, '89, 5 Tremont Street, Boston, Mass. ; Secretary, Qifford N. Swan, 
Technology, '99, 91 Babcock Street, Brookline, Mass. 

District II (New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania) — President, 
Dr. Albert Warren Ferris, New York, '78, 114 West 69th Street, New 
York City; Secretary (to be named.) 

District III (New York State, except New York City, and Canada) 
— President, Ralph C. Rodgers, Cornell, '05, Ithaca, N. Y., (home 
address, 115 Oak St., Binghamton, N. Y.) ; Secretary, A. V. Rowley, 
Syracuse, '07. 

District IV (Western States except Pacific Coast) — President, 
Frank W. Leavitt, Minnesota, '94, "Housekeeper," Minneapolis, Minn.; 
Secretary, John F. Moulds, Chicago, '07. 

District V (Pacific Coast) — President, Melvin G. Dodge, Hamilton, 
90, Stanford University, Cal. 

These officials will continue in office until after the next general 
convention. 

Ti^OST important among the duties of these new fraternity officials is 
that of holding district conventions. Evidence accumulates with 
each experience that these gatherings are going to be a very strong feat- 
ure in the fraternity life hereafter. If too elaborate programs are not 
attempted, they will supply a long-needed opportunity for inter-chapter 
friendships such as can hardly grow out of the brief fellowship at 
national conventions. The reactive effect on the chapters also is bound 
to be excellent. Often a chapter gets half isolated as it were. A vague 
provincialism of spirit enwraps the members. They come to believe that 
the fraternity begins and ends, with the chapter, not pausing to think 
that as a local society they would be almost nil in the college world. 
^Vttendance at a convention will always dispel such impressions, and it 
does not matter much whether the convention be district or national. 



EDITORIAL 189 

We must, therefore, welcome these right-at-home gatherings as an excel- 
lent cure for limited views of fraternity life. 

Another and not less important result that will flow from the dis- 
trict meetings will be improvements in chapter methods. Out of the 
discussions and exchanging of experiences will come ideas that can be 
carried away as a common heritage and made the inspiration of new and 
larger thoughts in every chapter, more efficient working out of plans 
for individual development. It is hard to overestimate the contributions 
that might be made in the next few years by the district conventions, 
if rightly guided. 

'T'HE official ritual now authorized for use by the chapters in their 
initiations, was adopted in 1886. This ritual gave excellent satis- 
faction for a good many years, but some time since it began to appear 
that the fraternity had grown into the need of a better and stronger form. 
During the last few years, especially, considerable dissatisfaction with 
the old ritual has been manifested, and the desirability of a thorough 
!evision of it has been repeatedly urged. At least five chapters have 
ceased to use it and have adopted special forms of their own, while 
many other chapters have introduced additions and modifications. So 
evident was the feeling on the matter that the Committee on Internal 
Development reported to the 1904 Convention that it regarded "a revision 
of the fraternity ritual as a very urgent need." As recommended by that 
Committee, the Executive Council was instructed to proceed with the 
work of revision. 

The Council has found the task thus set before it one of no small 
difficulty, for the requirements of a ritual are hard to meet. It must 
be neither too long nor too short; it must be dignified and impressive, 
showing excellence in style as well as in thought; it must voice the 
lessons of history, and be in keeping with the traditions of our fraternity ; 
it must express clearly the principles and ideals of the fraternity ; above 
all it must be calculated to leave a deep and abiding and very definite 
impression on the minds of the initiates; and to that end it must be so 
arranged as to offer a progressive development of a theme — loyalty 
to the fraternity, and to its ideals and its traditions. All this demands 
hot only the selection and arrangement of appropriate ideas and senti- 
ments, but their expression in forceful and graceful language, with 



190 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

special need of a careful formulation of principle and precept It 
demands as well the introduction of such ceremonial features as will 
heighten the desired effect This brief statement will make manifest the 
difficulty of the Council's task. And it is because of this difficulty that 
the Council is anxious to secure the advantages of advice from the fra- 
ternity's members. A request for suggestions from the diapters has 
already been made, but the Council will still welcome suggestions as to 
the ritual — its form, scope or contents — its general ideas or specific word- 
ing — from any member of the fraternity, graduate or undergraduate. 
Surely the evident importance to the fraternity of an adequate ritual 
should be sufficient to provoke numerous responses to this request, which 
will be helpful to the Council in its work. He who has an idea to give, 
let him speak! 

The present expectation is that the ritual will be in tentative form 
before college opens next fall, when copies will be made and sent to 
the chapters. The plan is that each chapter shall use the ritual in its 
regular initiation, thus forming an opinion of it from actual experience. 
With the aid of the criticisms and suggestions which will then be made, 
the ritual can be put into final form and submitted to the Convention of 
1907 for adoption. 

A S directed by the Convention last fall the Executive Council has pre- 
pared and put out, in the form of a pamphlet of 66 pages, a 
reprint of the important historical material in the Quinquennial of 1884. 
The publication of this pamphlet seemed advisable in view of the fact 
that about one-half of the chapters do not possess the 1884 Quinquennial, 
v/hich contains the most important material ever published in our fra- 
ternity history. The Quinquennial being out of print, this material 
could not be made available in any other way than by the preparation of 
a reprint. Copies of the pamphlet have been sent to each chapter to be 
placed in the chapter library; but personal copies may be secured by 
any member of the fraternity, at twenty-five cents apiece, from the 
Secretary of the Executive Council. 

TXTE recommend the Nebraska chapter letter as a good example for 

perusal by the chapter editors of some other chapters, not because 

of its reference to the Quarterly's behests, but because it is well 

arranged, well written and comprehensive. It is free from tiresome 



EDITORIAL 191 

stock phrases, undignified slang and unexplained local allusions. It was 
clearly typewritten with wide lines and broad margins, on heavy paper 
of letter size. It was not headed "Chapter Letter" and was not 
addressed personally to the editor. There were no slovenly abbrevia- 
tions, no misspelled words, no schoolboy flights of rhetoric. We can 
say with pleasure that the editors for whose particular benefit this is 
written are few — but you may be one of the few. 

A BILL was introduced into the recent legislature of the State of 
New York "To exempt real estate and personal property of Greek 
letter fraternities connected with a college or other institution of learn- 
ing, from taxation, and repealing all laws in conflict therewith." 

Although Delta Upsilon has eight chapters in New York State, 
seven owning houses and one about to purchase, we did not and could 
not support the measure as class legislation for the benefit of the few at 
the expense of the majority is eminently unfair. A chapter house is no 
more entitled to exemption from taxation than a boarding house in a 
college town or a student's own home, which might be next door to a 
chapter house, and certainly not as much as the house of a college pro- 
fessor who is aiding in the cause of learning. We believe heartily in 
chapter houses and in paying our own way. 

I^ELTA UPSILON has been maturing a plan for the formation and 
-*^ preservation of a "Pan Hellenic Fraternity Library," to be located 
in the New York Public Library under the care of Dr. Billings, the librar- 
ian, who has granted ample space and will bind and preserve the matter 
placed in his charge without expense to the fraternities. The plan has been 
presented to several faternities who have agreed to co-operate with us. 
In the early Fall a communication will be sent out over the signatures of 
those who have joined the proposition, asking that all fraternities unite to 
make the library complete. All fraternities wishing to join in this work 
are requested to write for further information to our Librarian, Wm. 
Oakley Raymond, 451 West End Avenue, New York City. 

pOR three consecutive issues we have presented a letter from every 
chapter. The October issue will be the critical test of the editor's 
opinion that it is possible for Delta Upsilon chapter editors to equal the 
record of Kappa Alpha and have a volume, and more, with an unbroken 
record. Will you be the one to spoil it ? 



192 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

THE NEW ENGLAND DISTRICT CONVENTION- 

By D. Ashley Hooker, Middlebury, '06. 

' I ^HAT the District Convention is a success was proved by its first 
"*■ trial, last year. That it must form a permanent feature of the 
fraternity was clearly shown by the second annual convention of the New 
England District held March 3rd, 1906. 

The delegates assembled at the Harvard Chapter House a little 
before eleven o'clock and after half an hour pleasantly occupied in intro- 
ductions and getting acquainted the convention was called to order by 
Brother Clarence Alfred Bunker, Han'ard, '89, president of the district. 
Brother Qifford M. Swan, Technology, '99, acted as secretary. A letter 
was read from Brother Wilson L. Fairbanks, Tufts, '87, of the Executive 
C'ouncil, regretting his inability to be present and outlining the powers 
and scope of the convention. 

The officers elected for the convention were A. N. Holcombe, Har- 
vard, '06, president, and J. R. Williams, Technology, '06, secretary. Reso- 
lutions were unanimously passed thanking Brother Bunker for his untiring 
efforts in making the convention a success. 

Brother Holcombe welcomed the convention in the name of the 
Harvard Chapter and in closing said: "For dinner the delegates will be 
divided up among the members of the Harvard Chapter." ( !) Brother 
Bargfrede, Williams, '09, responded, expressing the appreciation of the 
delegates. At the luncheons with the members of the Harvard Chapter 
we were given a glimpse into university life. 

The first paper of the afternoon session was given by Brother 
Prouty, Brozvn, '06, and was upon "Definite Aims in Chapter Work." He 
said that every fraternity has a certain character and a prominence in 
some line of college activities. With Delta Upsilon it is first character 
and second high intellectual attainment. He showed us what could be 
accomplished when a chapter has a definite aim by giving us statistics 
of the Brown Chapter. In the twenty-six years between 1868 and 1894 
the Brown Chapter won in money prizes $4,909, while the other nine fra- 
ternities won $5,584, and the non-fraternity men won $3,618. In that 
time 87 Delta Upsilon men were elected to Phi Beta Kappa. The chapter 
is often asked, he said, how it maintains such a high standard of literary 
excellence. This is due to the literary programs, which consist of debates, 
extemporaneous speeches, original stories, papers, talks, etc. The critic 
brings out in his report the weaknesses and strong points of each speaker. 
They succeed in keeping up the interest and everyone feels called upon 
to do his best. They emphasize presence at the meetings. He summed 
up as essential: (i) Fraternity programs; (2) Compulsory attendance. 

During the discussion that followed Brother Carter, of Amherst, 
said that there is presented to his chapter every other week a junior paper 



THE NEW ENGLAND DISTRICT CONVENTION 193 

which contains suggestions to the freshmen and articles written by differ- 
ent members of the Junior delegation. Brother Dustin, of Tufts, reported 
a Literary Committee and stated that the quality of the literary work 
depends upon the personnel of this committee. 

The convention was agreeably refreshed by the entertainment fur- 
nished them by Brother Osgood, Harvard, '04. 

A comprehensive paper on "Chapter Finance" was read by Uroiher 
A- H. Donnewald, Technology, '07. This chapter has as officers in 
charge of the finances a treasurer and assistant, and a steward and assist- 
ant, the treasurer and steward being elected at the end of the first term 
and holding office for one year. The treasurer is responsible for closing 
the house in the Spring and reopening it in the Fall. Each of these 
officers appoints his own assistant, but the appointments must be ratified 
by the chapter. As a rule, the assistant is elected to the head of his 
department the following year. 

The two departments are kept entirely separate. The treasurer is in 
charge of the house and its finances while the steward conducts the 
finances of the table and the laundry. 

The treasurer assigns the rooms at the beginning of the year, giving 
the precedence to those who have been longest in the chapter and the 
house. The rent is uniform. The chapter dues are separate from room 
rent and both are paid for only the eight months of the college year. 
Any unusual expense is met by an assessment levied by chapter vote, but 
this is seldom necessary. All moneys collected by the treasurer go into 
one fund irrespective of their sources. The regular expenditures of 
the house department are rent, gas, coal, delegates' expenses, the wages 
of a maid, and, in fact, all expenses not directly connected with the 
table and laundry. 

There is a small house building fund of about two thousand dollars 
in the hands of a committee of alumni. The treasurer's department con- 
tributes one hundred and ten dollars to this fund each year. 

The assistant treasurer handles all money and keeps double entry 
books, the treasurer keeping the ledger and having the bank account in 
his name. The executive committee audits the books monthly and the 
executive committee of the chapter alumni association is authorized to 
co-operate in the auditing. 

The steward employs a cook and a butler at an expense of about 
sixty-five dollars monthly. Fifteen men live in the house, paying five 
dollars a week for board. Those not boarding regularly at the house are 
charged a fixed amount for each meal. A separate charge is made for 
laundry. 

The assistant keeps the cash book and the steward the journal. All 
bills are paid by check and the books are audited monthly. A report of 
receipts and expenses is posted monthly on the bulletin board. The 



104 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

department has been self supporting for the past three years, and last 
year had a surplus of $250, most of which was used to purchase china, 
table linen, etc. 

The librarian collects two dollars a year from each member and 
this fund is used for the various periodicals and for binding the Quar- 
terly and the college paper. It is probable tliat next year the monthly 
dues will be raised to five dollars and the library tax, general fraternity 
tax and Prudential committee assessment paid out of the fund of the 
house department. There will then be only four items to be collected 
each month : room rent and dues by the treasurer and board and laundry 
bv the stew^ard. 

Brother Carter, Amherst, '05, gave a talk on "Vital Factors in 
Effective Rushing. He spoke of the service the alumni papers had been 
to his chapter this year, and said that the system needs to be extended 
and perfected. It is wise to have two or three alumni in the house during 
the rushing season. He spoke of the value of tact in rushing. Let the 
Freshmen feel the bond of brotherhood. But let it be genuine. Don't 
pretend to a feeling you haven't, and don't overdo it. 

Iwate in the afternoon the convention adjourned. The list of those 
in attendance is given with the report of the New England Qub banquet. 

THE NEW ENGLAND CXUB BANQUET, 

By Guy H. Holliday, Harvard, '89. 

T^HE twenty-second annual meeting of the New England Qub of 
■*• Delta Upsilon was held at the Copley Square Hotel, Boston, Sat- 
urday evening, March third. Knowing, no doubt, that the District Con- 
vention would bring delegates from all the New England chapters, the 
V. eather man, who sits at tlie top of the postoffice, arranged to show them 
one of his best rain storms and added a few extra buckets to the down- 
pour at about the hour of tlie dinner. Nevertheless, seventy-seven 
brothers representing fourteen chapters sat down together and gave very 
audible proof that no amount of rain could dampen their enthusiasm for 
Delta U. 

At a short business meeting the following officers were elected for 
1906-1907: 

President, Nathan A. Tufts, Brozmi, '00. 

Vice-President, Everett L. Getchell, Colby, '96. 

Honorary Vice-Presidents : Chas. L. Edgar, Rutgers, '82 ; Daniel 
H. Fuli-er, Brown, '85 ; Wilson L. Fairbanks, Tufts, '87 ; Guy 
H. HoLLiDAY, Harvard, '89. 

Secretary, Miles S. Richmond, Technology, '99. 

Treasurer, Allen P. Soule, Technology, '99. 



THE NEW ENGLAND CLUB BANQUET 195 

Directors : Clifford M. Swan, Technology, '99 ; Phillip M. Hay- 
den, Tufts, '03 ; Joseph W. Cowles, Cornell, '90 ; Herbert L. 
Pratt, Williams, '97 ; Rufus H. Kimball, Stanford, '03. 

The speaking was informal, as has been the custom of recent years,, 
and was under the direction of the President, Brother Guy H. HoUiday, 
Harvard, '89. Brother Qifford S. Anderson, Brown, '00, in a speech 
m which humor and seriousness were happily blended, drew attention to 
some of the duties of our graduates to the Fraternity and to the State. 
Brother Harold S. Daming, Harvard, '05, spoke at some length as to 
the need of a larger chapter at Harvard and of taking men having 
varied interests, academic, social and athletic. He referred to the 
Elizabethan play produced each year by the Chapter, and the effect its 
preparation had in breaking up and destroying any vestiges of the ice of 
formality and diffidence among the members that the "informal initia- 
tion" had not disposed of. 

Brother Albert A. Gleason, Harvard, '86, then spoke of the early 
days of the Qub in his usual easy and interesting style, after which the 
President called on a man from each chapter represented to give a brief 
account of its present condition and doings. Among the most interesting 
of these short speeches were those of Brother Rufus H. Kimball, Stan- 
ford, '03, who is president of the Delta Upsilon Qub of the Harvard 
Graduate Schools, and Brother John A. Brewer, California, *03. 

The President, according to the usual custom, turned the duties and 
responsibilities of his office over to Brother Nathan A. Tufts the new 
President, who accepted them in a few brief but appropriate remarks, and 
after singing the Fraternity Ode, the Qub adjourned. 

The list of attendance at the dinner and the district convention makes 
a good showing. Those marked with one star were present at the con- 
vention; those marked with two stars were at the convention only, and 
not at the dinner.

THE DISTRICT CONVENTION AT CORNELL. 

THE Canadian and Central New York chapters held their first district 
convention with the Cornell chapter on May 4 and 5. The date 
makes it impossible to give a full report in this issue. 

Brother Ralph C. Rodgers, Cornell, '05, presided. There were dele- 
gates from Colgate, Cornell, Hamilton, McGill, Rochester, Syracuse and 
Union, Toronto was not represented as examinations were being held. 
Each chapter presented an interesting paper followed by general discus- 
sion. A fuller report will be published in the next issue. 



THE ALUMNI CLUBS* 

COLORADO DELTA UPSILON CLUB. 

T^HE Q)lorado Delta Upsilon Qub is only two years old but has already 
-■" had three "annual banquets." The first was on March the 19th, 
1904, at Denver, when the club was organized by the choice of Brother 
D. P. Taylor, Middlebury, '96, as President; Brother J. W. Anderson, 
Marietta, '79, as Vice-President; and Brother H. W. Pinkham, Brown, 
'88, as Secretary and Treasurer. Brothers Taylor and Anderson had 
taken the lead in arranging for an organization and, together with 
Brother A. L. Patton, Swarthmore, '98, were the committee of arrange- 
ments for the first gathering. Twelve brothers responded to the invita- 
tions and became the charter members of the new club. Their names 
should be on record, and are as follows — in addition to the four above: 
Henry Trowbridge, Colby, 83; Henry McAllister, Jr., Swarthmore, 
'92; Alfred E. Hills, Northwestern, '83; Caleb D. Page, Cornell, '73; 
B. N. Himebaugh, Marietta, '80; Qyde H. Osbom, Stanford, '00; C. P. 
\Vay, Swarthmore, '98; O. S. Moore, Marietta, '79. 

The second banquet was on the 29th of December, 1904. Fifteen 
brothers gathered, the additional ones being President Victor C. Alderson, 
Harvard, '85 ; Arthur J. Hoskin, IViscofisin, 'go Benton Overman ; F. D. 
Young; Attorney-General N. C. Miller, Northwestern, '81; Rev. J. C. 
Carman, Rochester, '84; and J. C. Shedd, Marietta, '91. The Hon. 
f lenry McAllister, Jr., acted as toastmaster on this occasion which was 
most enjoyable. 

The third and last banquet and reunion was the best. It was on 
December the 28th, 1905, at the magnificent new Savoy Hotel in Denver. 
President David Starr Jordan, Cornell, '72, was the guest of the club. 
On account of an engagement which required him to leave early, the 
banquet was set for six o'clock. Shortly after that hour eighteen happy 
brothers in Delta Upsilon sat down together to enjoy a feast for both the 
outer and the inner man. President Alderson, with Dr. Jordan, was at 
the head of the table, and with fitting words presented to the company 
as the first speaker the distinguished visitor from the Pacific coast. Our 
honored guest made a very happy response which was received with 
heartv cheers. As Dr. Jordan took his leave the brothers rose and sang 
"He's a jolly good felllow." 

Before calling for further remarks the toastmaster gave way to the 
president of the club, Brother Taylor, for the annual business. The 
report of the secretary and treasurer was presented. An election of 
officers for the ensuing year resulted in the choice of Dr. Alderson 
for President, C. D. Page for VicePresident, and H. W. Pinkham for 
Secretary and Treasurer. A committee was appointed to investigate the 



198 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

question of securing a foothold for Delta Upsilon in the Colorado colleges^ 
namely, Brothers Alderson, Anderson, Shedd and Taylor. 

Dr. Alderson called on several brothers for speeches and the 
responses were admirable. The spirit of brotherhood and of devotion to 
Delta Upsilon and her ideals was supreme. Several fraternity songs 
were sung with enthusiasm. The company separated before ten o'clock, 
every brother having had a jolly good time. The following were present : 
Brothers Jordan, Alderson, Anderson, Catlin, Colwell, Croasdale, Hoskin, 
Kinne, Moore, Osborn, Page, Pinkham, Patton, Shedd, Smith, Strickland, 
Taylor and Trowbridge. A telegram was received from Brother McAllis- 
ter explaining his absence, and also a message from Attorney-General 
Miller, both of whom had expected to be with us. Adjourned to the next 
annual banquet in the holiday season of 1906. 

Readers of this Quarterly and chapter corresponding secretaries 
are requested to send to the undersigned the names of Delta Upsilon 
brothers who are known to have come lately to Colorado, so that they 
may be invited to the next gathering of the Club. 

Henry W. Pinkham, Secretary, 

TRENTON DELTA UPSILON CLUB* 

THE second annual meeting and banquet of the Trenton Delta Upsilon 
Qub was held on Monday evening, February 27,. at the Trenton 
House, Trenton, N. J., and was attended by thirteen enthusiastic men 
from Trenton and vicinity, representing seven Chapters. The invitation 
list embraced about fifty fellows scattered about the adjoining territory, 
outside of New York and Philadelphia, but the short notice was doubtless 
the cause of the many regrets. Those who came were : 
Lafayette, (5) : John G. Connor, '87, of Trenton, N. J.; F. M. Scheib- 
ley, '98, of Philadelphia, Pa. ; Stacy L. Roberts, '04, of Princeton 
University; David Styer, '04, of Military Academy, Bordentown, 
N. J. ; and Frank R. Bacon, '07, from the active chapter. 
Union, (2): Isaac Harby, '95, of Trenton; N. S. Arms, '05, of Kin- 

kora, N. J. 
Swarthmore, (2) : Owen Moon, Jr., '94, and William M. Muschert, '02, 

both of Trenton, N. J. 
Hamilton, ( i ) : C. E. Keck, '97, of Riverton, N. J. 
Colgate, ( I ) : Dr. A. W. Wishart, '89, of Trenton. 
Rochester, (i) : B. Holmes Wallace, '01, of Trenton. 
Rutgers, ( i ) : F. C. Van Dyck, '94, of Lawrenceville, N. J. 

Bro. Wishart acted as toastmaster and all present responded with 
accounts of their chapters in an informal and entertaining manner. The 
r^fayette contingent in particular and the Qub in general were happy and 
fortunate in having an undergraduate present, Bro. Robert Bacon, '07. 



THE ALUMNI CLUBS 199 

Bros. Roberts and Scheibley spoke feelingly of the sad death of Bro. 
John R. Peale, Lafayette, '02, whom they knew so intimately and loved 
so well. Our Qub and Delta Upsilon lost a noble member in the Chinese 
massacre. 

The following officers were elected: President, Francis C. Van 
Dyck, Rutgers, '94; Vice-President, Isaac Harby, Union, '95; Secreary 
and Treasurer, Owen Moon, Jr., Swarthmore, '94 ; Executive Committee, 
the officers and Bros. B. H. Wallace, Rochester, '01 ; F. N. Scheibley, 
Lafayette, '98; John G. Connor, Lafayette, '87. 

Fraternity songs and yells were given with the vim of college days 
under the leadership of Bro. Styer and upon adjournment about midnight 
the meeting and informal gathering was pronounced a great success. 

The first Monday in March, 1907, was appointed the date for the 
next regular annual meeting and banquet. 

Owen Moon, Jr., Swarthmore, '94. 

ALBANY DISTRICT CLUB. 

T^HE Seventh Annual Dinner and Reunion of the Albany District Qub 
■*• of Delta Upsilon was held at the New Kenmore, Albany, New York, 
on the evening of March 2nd, 1906. At the business meeting the follow- 
ing officers were elected to serve until the next Reunion and Dinner : 

Officers : President, Dr. John H. Skillicom, Cornell, '84 ; ist Vice-Presi- 
dent, Dr. Charles J. Lyttle, Hamilton, '78; 2nd Vice-President, 
Prof. Jared W. Scudder, Rutgers, '83, 3rd Vice-President, Prof. 
John M. Sayles, Colgate, '01 ; Secretary and Treasurer, Leopold 
Minkin, Union, '01, 2 DeGraff Building, Albany, New York. 

Executive Committee: Chairman, Dr. William B. Aspinwall, Harvard, 

'96; John F. Putnam, Union, '06; Roy H. Palmer, Williams, '02. 

At the dinner, Rev. Edgar H. Brown, President, acted as toastmaster. 
Forty members of the Qub were present. As a novelty the identity 
of the speakers on the toast list had been carefully concealed and each 
introduction by the toastmaster was a source of surprise. 

Senator Owen Cassidy, Frank H. Simonds, Lewis Cass, Rev. 
Creighton R. Storey, and Rev. William H. Hammersly responded to 
toasts. F. L. Wells spoke for the undergraduate chapter at Syracuse, 
while Harold A. Nomer brought greetings from Williams, and John F. 
Putnam responded for the chapter at Union. Reed, of Union, presided 
at the piano and Roy H. Palmer, of Williams, led the singing. The 
speeches were inspiring ; the singing was enlivening and it was the unani- 
mous verdict that this was the most successful Reunion the Qub has had. 
Letters and telegrams of regret were received from many of the absent 
members; those from Brothers M. Linn Bruce, Lieut.-Govemor of the

DELTA UPSILON CLUB OF WASHINGTON, D. C 

'T'HE Delta Upsilon Alumni Association of Washington, D. C, was 
■*• organized February i, 1893, by a few sturdy, staunch Delta U. 
men, such as the late Weston Flint, Union, '60; Arthur H. Giles, 5*3^0- 
cuse, '78 ; Hon. Stephen J. Field, Williams, '37 ; Otis J. Eddy, Hamilton, 
'68; Hon. Frank H. Hitchcock, Harvard, '91, and Delbert H. Decker, 
Cornell, '84. After an active existence of a few months, the club dis- 
banded for lack of support by the members. 

But, Vesuvius-like, after a period of inactivity of almost thirteen 
years, the spirit of Delta Upsilon again asserted itself and has moved 
our men in Washington to reorganization. A few earnest men of the 
Chesapeake Qub in Baltimore were seemingly the necessary factors in 
persuading and instigating our activity in the Capitol City. 

Twenty-two men representing thirteen chapters responded to a call 
for an informal meeting in the Raleigh Hotel on March 14, 1906. 
Brothers Robert H. Walker, T. Stockton Matthews, G. M. Lamb, Jr., 
Swarthmore, '02, '02 and '00 respectively, and George C. Shepard, Cor- 



THE ALUMSl CLUBS joi 

nelly '89, of Baltiinore, who have been highly instmmental in our reorgani* 
zation, were present at our first meeting and outlined their efforts in the 
organization of the CJiesapeake Qub. After a pleasant a-la-carte dinner, 
a short business session was held. Col. Weston Flint, Union, 'oo, and 
J. G. Sanders, Ohio, '03, were elected respectively President and Secre- 
tary pro tern. 

Those in attendance at the first meeting were: 
Amherst, Harry S. Kimball, 93: Arthur H. Kimball. 97. 
Colgate, James W. Many. 

Cornell, G. E. Patrick, '73; George C Shepard, '89; Karl F. Keller- 
man, '00. 
Hamilton, H, C Kieth, '03: T. D. Beckwith, '04. 
Harvard, J. A. Hill, '85 ; Perdval Hall, '92. 
Middlebury, Albert X. Prentiss, '91. 
Minnesota, Frederick P. Fellows, '06. 
Ohio State, Rudolph Hirsch, '01 ; J. G. Sanders, '03. 
Rochester, Theron Outwater, '75 ; J. Qinton Ransom, '79, 
3u*arthmore, Robert H. Walker, '02 ; T. Stockton Matthews., *02 ; G. M. 

Lamb, Jr., '00. 
Technology, Ferdinand T. Schneider, '92. 
Ihiion, Weston Flint, '60. 
\Villiams, Dwight Gordon Smith, '96. 

At the second meeting of the club on March 28, the following 
elections were made : Weston Flint, President ; John H. Olcott, Broztm, 
'y2, Vice-President; J. G. Sanders, Ohio, '03; Secretary-Treasurer. At 
this meeting the following men were present who were not at the first 
meeting: Delbert H. Decker, Cornell, '84; John H. Olcott, Brounu '72 \ 
Dr. Haven Metcalf, Brown, '96; William A. Slade, Broivn, '98; E, W. 
A^arney, Bowdoin, '99; Isaac Hamburger, New York, *8i ; A. T. Stra- 
horn, Nebraska, '01. 

It is a great sorrow to chronicle the death of our esteemed Presi- 
dent, Col. Weston Flint who was widely known throughout the country 
as a constant, energetic worker for the uplifting and enlightenment of 
his fellow man. Kindness was radiated by his cheerful countenance 
through all his walks of life. He was a great lover and student of good 
books. A short memorial sketch of the life and activities of Brother 
Hint was prepared by Delbert H. Decker and read at our last meeting. 

Brother John Olcott succeeds as our president, and Dr. Arthur II. 
Kimball, Amherst, '97, was elected to the vice-presidency of our club. 

The Secretary would be very grateful if the various chapter cor- 
respondents would inform him of the presence in Washington of their 
altunni or chapter members. The next meeting of the club will occur 
June 6, at the University Qub, i6th and K streets. 



202 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

The following resolutions were passed at the last meeting of the 
club: 

Resolved, That in the death of Mr. Weston Flint, the Delta Upsilon 
Qub of Washington has lost not only an efficient and active Presiding 
Officer but also an energetic and earnest worker for the Qub and the 
Fraternity of which he has been so long a member and to which he has 
always been so fondly attached. 

Resolved, That the Qub extend to his son, Mr. Weston Brown 
Flint, its profound sympathy in this hour of his overwhelming grief and 
affliction. 

John H. Olcott, President. 
J, G. Sanders, Secretary, 

CHESAPEAKE CXUB. 

/^N April 7th the Qiesapeake Delta Upsilon Qub held its annual reunion 
^^ in the Grill Room of Hotel Qiswell, Baltimore. The entire Grill 
was reserved for us — sl room of very artistic design in dark wood-work — 
but who doesn't know what an up-to-date grill-room looks like! The 
features of the occasion were an excellent "Maryland Dinner" of oysters, 
shad, etc., served at small tables, and songs and stories in dialect by some 
of our own number, assisted by an employed orchestra of 5 pieces. 

Brother Charles W. Ward, Northwestern, '03, was particularly 
entertaining with stories and verse in Irish brogue. About thirty men 
were present, including a number of visitors from the Washington Asso- 
ciation. The evening was perfectly informal and most enjoyable.

PLAINFIELD DELTA UPSILON ALUMNI CLUB. 

Ti^EMBERS of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity of Plainfield and vicinity 
•*'^-*" toasted alma mater in good old fashioned way at a banquet held 
in Truell Inn, Plainfield, Saturday night, December 23, and fraternal 
bonds were made stronger by the organization of the Plainfield Delta 
Upsilon Qub. The organization is to be permanent. Gatherings of a 
social nature will be held at the homes of the different members during 
the year, and a banquet will be held annually. 

The following officers were elected : President, Rev. L, R. Howard, 
Williams, '98 ; Vice-President, Maurice J. Thompson, Rutgers, '89 ; Secre- 
tary, Robert V. Hoffman, New York, '06; Corresponding Secretary, 
Lindsey Best, Hamilton, *99; Treasurer, Fullerton L. Waldo, Harvard, 
'98. The officers will comprise an executive committee. 

The club has an enrollment of thirty members, representing nine 
of the thirty-seven chapters of the fraternity, Williams, Harvard, Brown, 



THE ALUMNI CLUBS 203 

New York, Colgate, Swarthmore, Rutgers, Columbia and Hamilton, and 
one representative from the deceased Manhattan chapter. Seventeen 
of the members reside in this dty. 

The second meeting of the club was held at the residence of Lindsey 
Best on February 23. It was a most successful evening's entertainment, 
and all of the members present were indebted to Brother Best for a right 
good time. The thfrd meeting of the club has just been held at the resi- 
dence of J. T. Tubby, Jr., Columbia, '96, Highland Avenue, Westfield, 
N. J. Members present expressed satisfaction at the result of the meet- 
ing, and it is the intention of the club to meet every two months at the 
home of some member. 

It is our desire to enroll as many resident members as possible, and 
we hope that any Delta U. man living in or near Plainfield who has not 
attended these meetings will communicate with the secretary, Robert V. 
Hoffman of Westfield, and join us in our gay times at these informal 
social affairs. 

THE DELTA U. CLUB OF WESTERN CANADA* 

At present our club is what one might call in embryo, as we have only 
a few alimini resident in Winnipeg, the remainder being scattered over 
the broad territories of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. 
However, we are now making an endeavor to locate our dispersed breth- 
ren in order to weld them into the Delta U. chain across the continent and 
to bring them under the refreshing influences of the Quarterly if they 
do not already partake of its benefits. In this we feel sure we shall be suc- 
cesssful, and with the added strength which the increasing number of 
Delta U's coming to our city will g^ve us we hope before long to become 
a potent factor in Delta U. doings in Canada. Small as our numbers are 
at present, we can assure any wandering brother of a hearty welcome 
should he vissit Winnipeg, and we will endeavor to give him a warm 
enough reception to at least make him forget his homesickness in a strange 
land. 

Look up the secretary's address in the Quarterly and let him know 
when you are going to arrive. By so doing you will confer a favor on all 
of us and incidentally give the Western Canada Delta U. club an excuse 
for existing. If you drop in for one of our monthly meeting^ so much 
the better. 

News of any of our brethren located in the West is solicited. 

C. S. Blanchard, Secretary.

OBITUARIES 

WILMOT M. SMITH, CORNELL, 74. 

Wilmot M. Smith, B. S., justice of the New York Supreme Court in 
the second judicial district, died at his home in Patchogue, L. I., Thursday, 
March 29. He was fifty-four years old. 

He had served with distinction on the Supreme Court since 1895, and 
\\as held in the highest respect and esteem by his contemporaries and by 
members of the bar. He was noted for his whole-hearted democracy and 
untiring courtesy toward all lawyers who had occasion to practice in his 
courts. 

He was born in 1852 in Smithtown on Long Island, where his ances- 
tors had lived for more than two centuries. After attending the public 
schools he entered Cornell and was editor of tlie Era. Graduating in 
1874, he returned to Smithtown, studied law and was admitted to the 
bar in 1877. In 1884 he was elected district attorney of Suffolk County 
and was re-elected three years later, serving until 1890. He was Suffolk 
County Judge from 1891 to 1895, and was then elected a Supreme Court 
Justice. 

Justice Smith was much loved and respected in Patchogue, where 
he lived. He was noted for his charities, which he bestowed very unos- 
tentatiously. 

It is related of him that while he was serving as County Judge in 
Suffolk, in February, 1894, he refused to accept an increase of salary 
when it was offered him by the Board of Supervisors, telling the Board 
that it would be out of proportion to what the other county officers were 
receiving, and that their salaries in all fairness would have to be increased 
also. 

On the day of his death all the higher courts in Brooklyn were 
adjourned out of respect for his memory, and bench and bar vied with 
each other in their tributes to the dead jurist. In entertaining a motion 
for adjournment in part one of the Supreme Court in that city, Justice 
W. J. Kelley said : 

"In putting the motion the court desires to express the deep sorrow 
felt by the entire bench, in common with the bar of the district, on receipt 
of the intelligence that has come this morning. The people have lost a 
conscientious, a faithful and an able judge. The bench and bar have 
loi»t a dear friend, a man who, I believe, in the course of his life never 
intentionally hurt the feelings of a human being. If that be the indica- 
tion of a true gentleman, as some say. Judge Smith was indeed a gentle- 
man — a man among men. At the close of the case on trial, the court 
will adjourn for the term out of respect to the memory of our dead asso- 
ciate. Justice Wilmot Smith." 



OBITUARIES 205 

WESTON FLINT, UNION, '60. 

The Delta Upsilon fraternity mourns the death of its distinguished 
member, Weston Flint. Union Chapter mourns the loss of one of its 
most loyal supporters. The Delta Upsilon Club of Washington mourns 
the passing of one of its founders, its most active member, its president. 

The death of our beloved brother occurred on the morning of April 
6, 1906, at his home on K Street, in the city of Washington, after a 
short illness, from pneumonia. Grief over the death of his wife, which 
occurred less than a year before, had weakened his power of resistance. 

Brother Flint was born in Pike, Wyoming County, New York, July 
4, 1835. At the age of seventeen he began teaching, and in 1855 entered 
Alfred Academy, at Alfred Center, N. Y., where he was graduated in 
1858. In i860 he was graduated at Union College, and in 1863 received 
the degree of A. M. After teaching in New York, Pennsylvania and 
Ohio, he went to St. Louis, and while looking after the sick and wounded 
of the federal army in the hospitals was appointed military agent for 
C)hio, also acting a part of the time for the states of Michigan and New 
Vork in the care of their soldiers in camps and hospitals. In 1866-69 
he was attorney for claims in St. Louis, and took an active part in poli- 
tics of the state. In 1866 he was one of the organizers and secretary of 
the southern loyalist convention at Philadelphia, and in 1868 was a dele- 
gate to the Republican convention at Chicago. He became editor and 
publisher of the St, Louis Daily Tribune, He was also the organizer and 
secretary of the second board of the Geological survey of Missouri. 

In 1 87 1 he was appointed United States consul to Chin Kiang, China. 
On his return in 1874 he engaged in literary work and lecturing; then 
studied law in Columbian University, receiving the degree of LL.B. in 
1877, and that of LL.M. in 1878, and was admitted to the bar in the latter 
year. In 1877-87 he had charge of the scientific library of the United 
States patent office. He had much to do with the organization of the 
civil service commission, and was acting chairman and one of the exam- 
iners. In 1887-88 he served with the Senate committee which investi- 
gated the operations of the civil service, and in 1889 was appointed statis- 
tician of the United States bureau of education, and prepared the report 
on the libraries of the United States and Canada. 

In 1898 he was appointed first librarian of the new public library 
of the District of Columbia. He was secretary of the Anthropological 
Society of Washington, a member of the Historical Society, of the Ameri- 
can Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the council 
of the American Library Association, member of the American Folk-lore 
Society, of the National Geogfraphic Society and of the Society for Uni- 
versity Extension. He was a member of the Washington Board of Trade 
and of its committee on libraries. 



2o6 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

The brotherhood of man was ever a moving consideration with him 
and his influence is widely felt. He was a thirty-second degree Mason, a 
Knight-Templar, an active member of the University club and ever a 
loyal, enthusiastic member of Delta Upsilon. 

We, as members of Delta Upsilon, while grieving at our loss, take 
pride in the illustrious career of usefulness of our departed brother, 
Weston Flint. 

Delbert H. Decker. 

DR. CHARLES E. PRENTISS. MIDDLEBURY, '63. 

Charles Edward Prentiss died suddenly at Middlebury, Vt., March 
fifth, 1906, in his sixty-second year. At the time of his death, he 
was assistant librarian of Middlebury College, a position whch he had 
held for nearly ten years. A widow and two sons, both Delta U's, 
survive him. He was a brilliant man and played many parts upon life's 
stage. In the quiet closing scene, amid his beloved books, he made a 
friend of every student with whom he came in contact. And he came 
to all. The whole-souled helpfulness of Dr. Prentiss, the eagerness with 
which he seized each chance to help, and the zeal with which he created 
such chances, made it impossible for a man to spend much time at Middle- 
bury without encountering him. He was confessor, counselor, confidant, 
and friend to all ; no man on the faculty was so close to the real ambitions, 
weaknesses, and needs of the individual boys as he. 

He was a natural fraternity man; he never omitted an opportunity 
to help Delta Upsilon honorably. It is my understanding that he drafted 
the first constitution- of the national fraternity, at the Middlebury con- 
vention of 1864 where he was a delegate, and it is certain that, the Doctor 
being present, he would have it drafted while others debated. Out of his 
little he gave for books and other needs of the chapter ; out of his great- 
ness he gave to all the kindly understanding and aid which are more than 
money and an example of cheerfulness and self-sacrifice the worth of 
which can never be measured. 

NATHAN D. OORBIN, MICHIGAN. '86. 

Nathan D. Corbin, widely known in Detroit and throughout the state 
as a newspaper man, died March 20, 1906, at Harper hospital, Detroit, 
of heart disease. 

During the past decade Mr. Corbin held many important positions 
on Detroit newspapers, his splendid educational equipment making him 
a valuable man for the more responsible posts. At different times in 
his journalistic career, he had been Washington correspondent, Lansing 
correspondent and financial editor, and nearly every paper in the dty 
had at one time or another commanded his services. His last work 



il 



OBITUARIES 207 

on the daily press was as financial writer. About two years ago he left 
newspaper work for a short time to engage in private business. 

Mr. Corbin was bom at Bath, N. H., December i, 1861. He gradu- 
ated from the Ann Arbor High school in 1882 and from the University 
of Michigan in 1886. He took his Master's degree at the University of 
Michigan and also a law course, though he never practiced law. Before 
entering the newspaper field he was professor of history and political 
economy at the Michigan Ag^cultural college and was also for a time 
principal of the high school at La Porte, Ind. 

Mr. Corbin was married in 1892 to Margaret Moore of Grand 
Rapids. His wife died in 1899. He is survived by a daughter, Josephine, 
13 years old; a son, David, 11 years old, and an aged mother, whose only 
son he was.

The Shield of Phi Kappa Psi has said exactly what we wanted to 
say with reference to an illustration of a Sigma Chi "third degree stunt," 
and said it better: 

The Sigma Chi Quarterly presented a picture of a cart, with eccentrc 
wheels, hearing a saw-horse astride of which are seated several hllnd-folded 
candidates for initiation into the new cAiapter of Sigma Chi at Colorado Col. 
lege. Members of the chapters are shown grouped about the vehicle. The 
apparatus is called, according to the Quarterly, "the wild ass of the desert 
in repose." Careful examination of the picture reveals the presence In it 
of considerably more than one ass. 

♦ 4c 4c 4c 

We are jealous — distinctly so— of the editor who can report over 
a thousand alumni subscribers. That is the goal we have set for 
this year. Read this and then continue the good work already begun. 

The Sigma Nu Delta has eleven hundred alumni subscribers, and claims 
that in this respect it surpasses every other fraternity magazine. Kappa 
Alpha should not be satisfied with a position among the leaders, when with 
a little effort i^e could be the leader. It is entirely dependent upon the 
chapters whether we shall be able to claim this proud distinction. — Kappa 
Alpha Journal. 



GOSSIP OF THE GREEKS

Mr. Verner M. Jones, who made "The Greek Press" department of 
Kappa Alpha Journal most interesting during the past two years, has had 
to retire, to the great regret of all fraternity journalists. Editor Burnley 
has well sustained the reputation of his magazine by his reviews of ex- 
changes in the December Journal. The following clippings, however, are 
interesting as showing how editorial opinion, which is presumably im- 
personal, can change: 



The first copy of the S. A. B. Rec- 
ord the writer has seen for years is 
Just at hand, and indicates immense 
improvement over the magazine of 
former years. It is one ♦ ♦ ♦ 
of the hest arranged magazines. * * 
One of the most attractive mechan- 
ical changes noted consists in using 
double columns for chapter letters, 
after the manner of Delta Upsilon. — 
Kappa Alpha Journal, December, 
1904. 



The chief fault we have to find 
with the Record it its publication of 
chapter letters in fine type, two col- 
umns to the page, giving the depart- 
ment an insignificant appearance, 
when, in our opinion, it is the most 
important feature of a fraternity Jour- 
nal, as the prime object of fraternity 
organs is the dissemination of news 
of the chapters between them. — 
Kappa Alpha Journal, December, 
1905. 



The Caduceus of Kappa Sigma has made a comparison of the 
aatumn issues of the fraternity magazines with respect to chapter letters, 
and we read it with a sinking heart. We have arranged the figures 
in the form of a table : 

Maffaxine 

Kappa Alpha Journal 

Record of Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

Caduceus of Kappa Sigma 

D. K. E. Quarterly 

Sigma Chi Quarterly 

Phi Gamma I>elta 

Delta Upsilon Quarterly 

Phi Kappa Psi Shield 

Delta of Sigma Nu 

Beta Theta Pi 

The editor adds: "The only conclusion which appears to the 
writer from this array of figures is that it is hard work to get a large 
number of different men to perform separate pieces of work punctually 
and before a fixed date — ^and he knew that before."

Of the last June and October issues of The Quarterly the Kappa 
Alpha Journal comments thus: "Besides a few notes the only editorial 
is on the chapter letter subject." "Notwithstanding the editorial appeal 
in the previous issue only twenty-five chapter letters appear of the 
thirty-six due." 



^lo THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

The Journal further makes this justifiable boast: 

Wlhile the Editor has had to work "powerful hard" to secure some of 
them, every active chapter has had a letter In the Journal for seven succes. 
«ive issues. The fact, however, that every active chapter has been repre- 
snted by a letter in the last seven Issues of the Journal seems to prove that 
Kappa Alpha has solved a problem over which the S. A. E. Record, the 
Delta Upsilon Quarterly, and numerous other Greek-letter publications are 
still struggling. 

We have made a good start in having a letter from every chapter 
in this and the past two issues of this volume. But our greatest difficulty 
always lies with the October number. Will the chapter editors accept 
such criticism as the above without an attempt to make a perfect record? 
Will they accept seventh place with a record of sixty-nine percent. ? 



The Alpha Tau Omega Palm has materially improved in the last 
few issues. We appreciate the following compliment, eyen though we 
are not classed at the head: 

If we should be asked to name the handsomest publication (and the 
costliest too, perhaps,) in the fraternity world, there would be no hesitancy 
in mentioning the Kappa Sigma Caduceus as being superior to all others in 
this respect. The Delta Upsilon Quarterly and the Kappa Alpha Journal 
follow rather closely but the first named is a long way ahead of everything 
else. 

« « « « 

If we can find the time — and the money — ^we have plans to place 
the Quarterly even nearer the top. Perhaps Mr. Farr, editor of the 
Caduceus, will tell us "where he got it" The Palm refers to the spread 
of Kappa Alpha, saying that now it can hardly be called a purely South- 
ern fraternity, and adds : 

It is now up to Delta Upsilon to spread a little South and Southwest 
and to become less sectional in a geographical way. 

Having now proffered advice as to how Delta Upsilon can do the right 
and proper thing (which advice it didn't telegraph for, doesn't want, and 
undoubtedly refuses to appreciate just now), we turn to the attractive Quar- 
terly it has sent out under date of December first; not only attractive in 
appearance but interesting in its varied accounts of their late 71st annual 
convention. 

The scribe would like to be enlightened as to why, in spite of its 
strength in the North and Bast, Delta Upsilon has never entered the Univer- 
sities of Maine, or Vermont, or Dartmouth, >Jew Hampdiire. Will some 
one satisfy him? 

The good intentions, at least, of the Palm's advice are appreciated, 
and the way may be paved to serious consideration of the proposition — 



GOSSIP OF THE GREEKS 211 

we intend no allusion to the pavement for which good intentions are 
generally used. 

For the enlightenment asked for we would refer to the article 
"Extension for Strength" by Brother Wilson L. Fairbanks, Tufts, '87, 
published in the March, 1903, Quarterly, and the subsequent discussion 
of the subject.

Here are two views of "Baird's Manual," published editorially by

This, from a chapter letter in a sorority magazine, was signed by 
tlie corresponding secretary and countersigned by another official. It is 
copied exactly. It is quoted not as a criticism of the sorority or the 
editor, for we have all met its equal, but as an object lesson for some 
chapter editors: 

Of course fraternity life is not an ideal one, but to develope a more 
lovatle disposition it is even better than the family life, because too often 
there is a spirit of favoritism, 'wthich may mar her attempts to be nicer, 
but realizing that her attractiveness depends upon her own efforts, and if 
ever she stands upon her own merit, she will try her utmost to be interesting^ 
lovable and entertaining. 

We may not all reach the goal toward which we are striving, but in 
our efforts we trust we may develop into the noble, broad minded women,, 
of which each one desires so earnestly to become.

THE Commencement is now ap-

ter, however, is not going to lose any 
men by graduation this year, and ex- 
pects to have all the present active 
men back in the work next fall. 

The past year has been quite suc- 
cessful in many respects. In college 
work and activities as well as in ath- 
letics, all have tried to uphold the 
honor of the college, never forget- 
ting Delta Upsllon's share for an in-

ground for conjecture. Some of last 
years's star men are out of school this 
year, but we hope that those who are 
left, strengthened by the new mate* 
rial, will make a good showing in 
the coming meets. 

The Chapter has decided to keep 
open house for the alumni on the 
first and third Sundays of each 
month. Every Delta Upsilon man, 
alumnus or not. who lives in Cleve- 
land or happens to be there, is in- 
vited and urged to be present. 

This year we have adopted the 
plan suggested at the convention of 
sending to all the alumni a statement 
of the condition of the chapter, and 
we are waiting to see if it may awak- 
en any more interest and enthusiasm 
in the welfare of the active chapter.

A member of the Westchester 
Presbytery writes: 

"I consider Mr. Merriam an ex- 
ceptionally bright man — one of the 
brightest In our Presbytery. He is 
strong intellectually, and one of his 
elders told me the other day that 
every year he was becoming more 
spiritual in his preaching. I haye 
found Merriam 'a manly man,' which 
I consider a great quality in a min- 
ister today. I believe that he would 
appeal to men, and I know that he 
is also very popular with the young 
people of his church. Again I have 
found him a very honest, open man 
in every way. His ability to adapt 
himself to all classes of society es- 
pecially fits him for a city church. 
I believe that he is also a man of 
more than ordinary executive abili- 
ty." — New York Observer.

THE spring term opened April 10^ 
and on the Friday night follow- 
ing occurred the annual College Ral- 
ly which proved to be one of the most 
notable occasions of the kind held 
for a long time. President Hyde, the 
first speaker of the evening, said, 
among other things, that Bowdoln 
was always celebrating. This year 
it is the 100 th anniversary of the 
first commencement. Among the 
other speakers was Dr. Daniel Rob- 
inson, '73, of Bangor. Dr. Robinson 
spoke of the Bowdoln Spirit, as seen 
in the college life and as exemplified 
in the lives of our alumni; he spoke 
In very eloquent terms of Gen. 
Joshua L. Chamberlain, the hero of 
Little Round Top, of William Pitt 
Fessenden, the statesman, and of 
Commander Peary, now on a dash for 
the North Pole. 



The College Dramatic Club re- 
cently presented "The Rivals" to a 
full house In Brunswick, scoring a 
big hit. It Is hoped that the play 
may be presented again later in the 
term. 

In spite of the unusually late 
spring, college athletics are progress- 
ing well. In baseball our prospects 
are especially good and we are devot- 
ing our attention as heretofore to 
securing the Maine championship. 
The chapter Is represented by Bros. 
Wilson, '07, manager; Blair, '09»

JUNIOR Week has just passed by 
with a rush. Beginning with the 
Dartmouth game. Including a concert 
and hop; an Informal farce; "She 
Stoops to Conquer," presented by the 
''Sock and Buskin" society, and a 
roaring, rollicking, one-ring circus 
(with side-shows), and ending with 
the gorgeous Junior Prom, the class 
of 1907 distinguished itself for ac- 
tivity, originality and enthusiasm. 
It was the best time we have had on

to say, our own little group made 
and enjoyed much of the fun. Den-

self as the "barker" for "the finest

Tht statistics win be brief for this 
report, as almost all elections have 
been told of. The next important 
event will be the Oaston Oratorical 
contest, in which Barbour, *06, will 
deliver an essay. Two prize debates 
come in the spring term. Bruce, '07, 
has already won the Mahonk prize 
of forty dollars, and Sinclair, '07, is 
on the team which debates for the 
Junior Hicks prize. On the team 
which debates the Columbia Fresh- 
men, moreover, is Hughes, Jr., *09. 

Class Day, of course, is beginning 
to get on our minds in the Interims 
when we are not wondering how bad 
we shall beat the rest of the Big 
Four (we just beat Princeton 2-0). 
Whitenack in chairman of the Class 
Day committee, and Swaffleld is on 
the Senior Ball committee. If the 
weather is anything like the glorious, 
balmy, springy Junior Week weather, 
this year will go down in our records 
as one of great events, for the com- 
mittees have some excellent plans on 
foot. 

We have had good news in regard 
to our faculty. Professor von Klenze, 
a Harvard Delta U., is going to teach 
us language henceforth, and we hear 
he is among the best in the country. 
And the famous sociologist, Lester 
Ward, is to become one of our in- 
structors, giving us, unquestionably, 
the best department of sociology in 
the country. Already our stafC in 
this work was famous. 

Charles E. Hughes, of New York, 
dropped in on us the other day for 
a fifteen minute talk in the Union. 
He was on his way to address a bank- 
ers' dinner. Of course, he was greet- 
ed with spirit, and, as he left the 
building, he passed through a double 
line of cheering students, who form- 
ed his guard from the steps of the 
building to the door of his carriage. 
His speech was thrilling. I forgot to 
mention above that Hughes, Junior, 
has Just been elected one of the edit- 
ors of our dally "Herald" — a com- 
petitive office. And the rest of the 
Brown Delta U. family are keeping 
in a winning rut.

'70 — Chancellor B. Banjamin An- 
drews, who has been much talked of 
as the probable successor of Dr. Har- 
per as president of the University of 
Chicago, recently stated that no sal- 
ary consideration could induce him 
to leave the University of Nebraska 
so long as his relations were as pleas- 
ant as they are at present. 

'72 — Rev. Dr. B. A. Greene re- 
cently lectured before the students 
of Crozer Theological Seminary. 

'81 — Charles E. Hughes has an- 
other investigation on hand. Attor- 
ney General Mooday gave out the 
following statement on April 17: 

"Charles E. Hughes, Esq., of the 
New York bar and Alexander Simp- 
son, Jr., of the Pennsylvania bar, 
have been retained by the Depart- 
ment of Justice to take under con- 
sideration all the facts now known, 
or which can be ascertained, relative 
to the transportation and sale of coal 
in inter-state commerce; to advise 
what, if any, legal proceedings 
should be begun, and to conduct, un- 
der the direction of the Attorney Gen- 
eral, such suits or prosecutions, if 
any, as may be warranted by the evi- 
dence in hand and forthcoming." 

Charles E. Hughes was the guest 
of honor at the dinner of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce of Syracuse May 5. 
He spoke on "Honesty in Business 
and Political Life." Mr. Hughes 
said that there had been a great 
awakening of public conscience; that 
the people had been humiliated by 
the revelations of the insurance in- 
vestigation, but that wise legislation 
enacted would prove a remedy for 
the abuses of past systems. He as- 
serted that under the new laws the 
New York companies would be the 
best in the world, and that observ- 
ance of the laws would remedy all 
so-called inequalities. 

Charles E. Hughes is president of 
the Dwight Alumni association. 

"It may be stated without viola- 
tion of confidence that the president 
thinks that Charles E. Hughes pos- 
sesses the qualifications necessary to 
make an admirable candidate for 
Governor of New York. It may be

stated also that the President would 
be glad to see Mr. Hughes nominated, 
for he believes that he is the kind 
of man the voters of the state have 
confidence in and would desire to 
elect. 

"Certain influential New York of- 
ficials have repeatedly said that 
Hughes would make an ideal candi- 
date for the Governorship. One of 
the close friends of the President 
said today: 'Hughes is well liked 
by the President. He thinks that 
Hughes carried himself admirably in 
the insurance investigations and af- 
terward. He thinks he is a man who 
could unite the opposing factions in 
the state, and could certainly be 
elected.' 

"Still another New York Republi- 
can said: 'It is a fact that some time 
since efforts were made quietly to 
sound Mr. Hughes on the question of 
the governorship. He gave no en- 
couragement whatever to those who 
would like to get behind a movement 
to nominate him. In fact, he plainly 
intimated that politics had no attrac- 
tion for him.* " — Brooklyn Daily 
Eagle. 

'81 — ^The Hon. Cornelius W. Pen- 
dleton, of Los Angeles, Cal., State 
Senator, who passed through the 
earthquake at San Jose, had a thril- 
ling escape. He said: "After the 
earthquake I covered San Jose in an 
automobile and saw at least twenty 
dead. Nearly every brick anl stone 
structure in San Jose was demolish, 
ed or damaged. I was at the Ven- 
dome hotel. The shock of the earth- 
quake was so severe that the floors 
and walls of the hotel collapsed. We 
had a room on the side of the hotel 
near a large tree. The side wall of 
my room fell against this tree, which 
also sustained that portion of the 
roof, preventing it from falling in 
on us. 

"My room was on the second floor, 
but when I got up I was in the base- 
ment. I crawled over the debris and 
escaped through a third story window 
that was on a level with the gnround."

He has charge of the development of

courses, with about 2,000 fraternity 
men. Twenty-two of the fifty-three

chapters of Delta Upsllon, and 1,300 
of the 2,000 fraternity men are in 
these twenty- two institutions. 

Brother Cooper writes of the

my work takes me constantly among

THE terrible fire which started 
after the earthquake of April 
18 has just been brought under con- 
trol after burning for over fifty hours. 
The entire business district of San 
Francisco and a large part of the 
residence section lie in ruins, but 
confidence has not been lost and a 
larger and greater city will be the 
result. The city is under martial 
law and in this we have had our part, 
for the University Cadets were called 
on and the entire command has been 
doing guard duty. All University 
exercises were immediately suspend- 
ed and Berkeley has been thrown 
open to the thousands of refugees 
from across the bay. Prom the pres- 
ent indications college work will not 
be resumed this term, as it Is prac- 
tically the end of the semester now. 
Stanford suffered more from the 
shock than California and of course 
all inter-collegiate contests were call- 
ed off. This leaves the baseball se- 
ries undecided, for Stanford won the 
first game 1-0, and California the 
second 4-3. In fact, the only other

THE second initiation of the year 
was held at the Chapter house 
on April 7. Besides alumni of our own 
chapter, there were present brothers 
from the Wisconsin, Cornell, Will- 
iams, Michigan, Minnesota and La- 
fayette chapters. The charge to the 
initiates was given by Arthur E. Bes- 
tor, '01. At the banquet which fol- 
lowed, Frank R. Adams, '04, presid- 
ed as toastmaster. The toasts re- 
sponded to were:

Our numbers have also been in- 
creased by the return to college of 
Harvey B. Fuller, '08, who for the 
last five months has been serving as 
tutor for Marshall Field III. 

Although seriously weakened by 
the loss of some of its stars, the track 
team, captained by Parry, '06, is 
planning to put up a hard fight to 
maintain its position as champions 
of the West. Parry, who holds the 
University records in the discus and 
the hammer throw, won eight points 
in the Western intercollegiate meet 
last year, and is counted on for the 
same number of points this season. 
His recent success at Philadelphia at 
the Pennsylvania games in winning 
the hammer throw from Tom Shev- 
lin of Yale, and taking third place 
in the discus has marked him as one 
of the best weight men in the coun- 
try. At the dual meet with Illinois, 
in May, he won first in the hammer 
and discus throws, and second in the 
shot put, breaking the Chicago and 
Illinois records in the hammer 
throw, both of which he already held. 

Russell, 'OS, who won his second- 
ary emblem in track last year, should, 
from his present form, win enough 
points in the discus and shot to give 
him his "C." Taylor, '09, will also 
be a strong addition to the varsity 
squad in the weights. The "big

three" are also sure of places on the 
football team next fall. 

Hebberd, '09, in a recent tryout 
succeeded in defeating all the veteran 
players on the varsity golf team. He 
is also captain of the Freshman 
bowling team, of which Ulrich is a 
member. Bowman, '09, was a mem- 
ber of the Science College soccer 
team in the inter-college games 
against Philosophy College, on whose 
team Coyne, '09, played as guard. 

In the inter-fraternity baseball 
league we have defeated Delta Tau 
Delta, and have lost a game to Sigma 
Chi; several games are yet to be 
played. 

At the elections the "Fencibles," 
the University honor debating soci- 
ety, Fernald, '08, was chosen presi- 
dent, while George Fuller, '08. was 
elected treasurer. Judson, '08, is 
also a member. Bowman, '09, is a 
member of the Science College de> 
bating team. Bernard, '07, is a 
member of the "Stump," the senior 
honor debating society. 

The University annual, the "Cap 
and Gown," just published, is con- 
sidered the finest and most complete 
volume of its kind ever gotten out 
at the University. Moulds, '07, was 
managing editor; Hughes, '06, and 
Fernald, '07, were associate editors; 
Judson, '08, was one of the literary 
contributors; Weddell, '05, Bruce, 
'06, and Harvey Fuller were art con- 
tributors. 

"The Rushing of Raxes," the an- 
nual play of the "Blackfriars," the 
University comic opera club, will be 
given the latter part of May. Bruce 
is acting abbot (president). Judson 
is a member of the executive commit- 
tee. Hughes will play the lead, sup- 
ported by Bruce and Weddell, '05, 
as "leading ladies." On the chorus 
are Adams, '09, Coyne, Hebberd, 
Welling, '09, Kennedy, '09, and 
Bowman. Judson is property man. 

The annual dramatic club play this 
year is "Trelawney of the Wells," 
in which Bruce, ex-president of the 
club, plays the part of "Telfer." 

Lemon, '06, now engaged in re- 
search work in astronomy at Terkes 
Observatory, has been awarded the 
departmental scholarship in that sub- 
ject. Fernald and Harvey Fuller 



have been granted President's Schol- 
arships; Welling holds an entrance 
scholarship. 

Russell is on the Ehcecutive Com. 
mittee of Science College, and is its 
athletic representative. 

Moulds is one of the entertainment 
committee of the Reynolds club, of 
which Vogt, ex-'06, was secretary. 

Fernald is a member of the Inter- 
scholastic Commission, and chairman 
of its Press committee. 

Junior Day offices fell to Russell, 
who is chairman of the Committee on 
Athletics, and to Fernald, who is one 
of the Finance committee of the 
Prom. 

The Pan-Hellenic Promenade was 
not held this year, each fraternity 
holding its social functions separate- 
ly. Our formal dance was held Fri- 
day, May fourth, and was attended 
by all the active members of the 
chapter, practically all the chapter 
alumni in the city, and a number of 
brothers from other chapters — sixty 
couples in all — being in attendance. 

The chapter has been particularly 
fortunate in its close relationship 
with the Chicago Alumni Club, all 
of whose banquets and smokers the 
chapter has been able to attend in a 
body. 

Twenty-four Delta U. faculty mem- 
bers in the University — more than 
those of any other chapter of any 
fraternity in any college; important 
offices in the senior, junior, and 
sophomore classes; a larger number 
of men on the football and track 
teams, in the comic opera club, in the 
honor societies, and on the boards 
of student publications, than any 
other fraternity In the University; 
the first office in glee, dramatic, com- 
ic opera, and debating clubs, on the 
University annual, on the track team, 
in the management of the student 
daily — these, in brief, are some of 
the things that bring strength to the 
Chicago Chapter of Delta Upsilon.

Active Memhership, 23. 

THE Colhy Chapter has been mak- 
ing substantial if not rapid 
progress. One of the most gratifying 
things in our fraternity life is the 
deep interest shown by the local al- 
umni in everything pertaining to our 
welfare. This interest will no doubt 
result in a stronger bond of mutual 
helpfulness between the alumni and 
the active chapter. 

A few honors in athletics and other 
college activities have fallen to our 
men recently. In the Dramatic club, 
which has just finished a most suc- 
cessful season, Bro. Lincoln, '06, is 
president, and Bro. Richardson, '09, 
property man and soloist. Among 
the other members of the club are 
Bros. Stevens and Coombs, '06, and 
Hackett, '09. Bro. Coombs, '06, is 
meeting with his usual success as 
captain and pitcher of the baseball 
nine. Brother Trlbou, '08, is playing 
an exceptionally strong game at his 
old position in the left field. Bro. 
HcLellan, '09, is out for the second 
team. Few of our men are showing 
up for track work. Bro. Condon,

AS the college year draws to its 
close, we feel deep regret at the 
parting which must inevitably come 
at Commencement. In making up this 
year's Freshman delegation, it has 
been our endeavor, successful thus 
far, to secure a well-balanced chap- 
ter, so as to prevent permanent loss 
from the graduation of our energetic 
seniors. 

The death of Bro. Robert R. Mas- 
tin, '08, on February 11, was the 
occasion of heartfelt grief to each 
brother. His personality was quiet 
and lovable, and to each one of us 
the news of his death came as a 
great shock. Bro. Mastin, besides 
being interested in rowing, sang last 
year in the chorus of "The Khan of 
Kathan," and had been elected assist- 
ant manager of the Musical Clubs. 
The members of the chapter attended 
the funeral in a body, six brothers 
serving as pallbearers. 

The athletic situation has been 
somewhat cleared up by the an- 
nouncement that Columbia is Jto ac- 
quire in the near future a million dol. 
lar athletic field along the Hudson 
river front. As the permission of 
the State and of the Federal govern- 
ment has to be obtained, some delay 



is expected before the actual work of 
filling in begins. On the other hand, 
not a little discouragement has re- 
sulted from the publication of the 
faculty committee's report, which 
is supposed to indicate the tenor of 
the ultimate action to be taken on 
intercollegiate athletics. Some fea- 
tures of the report are the restriction 
of intercollegiate sports to three 
home games and three games out of 
town, the elimination of professional 
coaching and training tables, except 
in rowing, and the barring of Fresh- 
men and postgraduates in varsity 
athletics. 

During the last few months we 
have been favored with visits from 
the following brothers: Rev. E. H. 
Abbey, Hamilton, '71; Tyng, Harv- 
ard, '04; Cole, Northwestern, '03; 
Grant, Amherst, '04; Camp, Cornell, 
'05; Dutton, Rochester, '05; Lewis,

Sage, Rochester, '05; Haller and 
Black, Amherst, '08; Baldwin, Cor- 
nell, '08; Hamilton, Lafayette, '07; 
Evans, Hamilton, '05, and a large 
number of our own alumni. 

The Columbia Varsity debating 
squad was coached this year by Bros. 
W. B. Parker, Harvard, '97, and 
Baker, '99. Two Delta U men made 
the teams, Shaw, '08 L., and Leaven- 
worth, '08 L., who captained the 
New York team. Essex, '06, presi- 
dent, and Chapin, '07, secretary of 
the debating union, were in charge 
of arrangements. We regret to say, 
however, that Cornell and Pennsyl- 
vania both secured the decision on 
March 9. Chapin, '07, was elected 
president of the Columbia-Cornell- 
Pennsylvania league for next year. 

The Varsity basketball team, of 
which Fettretch, '06, was a member, 
finished with second place in the in- 
tercollegiate league. Hoag, '09, sur- 
vived the cut in the Freshman crew 
squad, and 1$ rowing in the second 
boat. Maynard, '06, was awarded a 
gold fob by the non-athletic council 
for his services on "Spectator." 
Our representatives on the Freshman 
track team are Edgar, '09, and Pell,

much favorable notice for his work

There have been some changes in 
the fraternity world lately. Phi 
Delta Theta has moved into its new 
1 5 0,0 00 house at Broadway and 
113th street. The Delta Phi Club is 
completing its six-story house on 
116 th street, near Riverside drive. 
Part of the building will be used by 
the undergraduate organization for 
chapter purposes. The Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon chapter has also purchased 
a new house. All this progress nat- 
urally fills us with the desire of own- 
Ing as good a chapter house as there 
is on the Heights. The feeling of the 
chapter alumni association leads us 
to believe that the possession of such 
B home is a thing of the near future. 

We have been holding several sub- 
Freshman rush meetings In order to 
get a preliminary view of next year's 
material. All were well attended. 
Though it is perhaps a little early 
to call for alumni support, we ask 
every graduate brother to get in 
communication with us by next Sep- 
tember and recommend good men 
who are going to enter in the fall. 
Nothing helps in rushing more than 
the backing of former members of 
the chapter. It is our desire to see 
ell the old men who get back for 
Commencement.

WITH the coming of spring, both 
the University and our chap- 
ter have taken hold of things with 
newed vigor. 

Dealing with athletics, our Varsity 
baseball team so far has played nine 
games -without a single defeat, and, 
out of the five games played on 
Percy Field, four have been Cut- 
outs. With Umstad and Deshon on 
the pitching staff and with practic- 
ally a veteran team, we look for- 
ward to the best season in the his- 
tory of the University. 

In Crew, the outlook is fully as 
promising. Not in the last four 
years, has Ck>ach Courtney had such 
an experienced and strong list of 
candidates aa is at his disposal this 
spring. 

R. W. Weed, '09, who was initiated 
on March 17th, is at present strok- 
ing the first Freshman combination. 
In addition, our chapter has two 
other Freshman candidates for crew. 

Bro. L. D. Root, '08, for the past 
two years center on the Basketball 
team, has been elected captain for 
next year. 

A great deal of interest has been 
shown in the inter college baseball 
games for the championship of the 
University and for the prize cup 
given by the Deans of the Colleges. 
This cup was won last year by the 
Civil Engineering Department after 
a hard struggle. All the teams seem 
to be even more closely matched 
this year, and the coming contest 
bids fair to be practically as inter- 
esting as our intercollegiate games. 

There has also been instituted 
lately in the field of rowing the same 
system of intercollege contests for 
a similar cup. All the colleges have 
signified their intentions of develop- 
ing crews, and both the undergradu- 
ates and the alumni are watching 
this experiment in the line of more 
participation on the part of the gen- 
eral student body in regulation 



branches of athletics with a great 
deal of interest. 

Very much to the regret of the 
whole undergraduate body, the 
Freshman Banquet, our most highly 
cherished tradition, has been prac- 
tically abolished by a ruling of the 
Faculty forbidding rushes and per- 
sonal contests. The whole commu- 
nity is trying to devise some means 
of so regulating this banquet that 
the good features of the tradition 
may be saved. 

<Coming down more closely to Fra- 
ternity matters, the point of great- 
est interest developed in the last 
month is the agitation regarding giv- 
ing up the fraternity houses to the 
alumni Senior Week instead of hold- 
ing the accustomed house party. This 
plan seems to have met with disap- 
proval by the fraternities, who de- 
sire to retain the house party as a 
valuable college function, and at the 
same time to do all m their power to 
attract as many alumni as possible 
to the University at Commencement 
time. But up to the present, any 
plan for saving the good points of 
both schemes has not been devised. 

Bro. C. H. Tuck, '06, has been 
chosen one of the Woodford speakers. 
This is a Senior oratorical contest of 
six men for a medal valued at $100, 
and is the highest competition in 
oratory in the University. 

Bro. N. Aleman, '07, has been 
tlected vice-president of the C. U^ 
C. A. 

Our chapter is running with ex- 
ceptional smoothness. We expect to 
turn out a strong baseball team for 
the interfraternity games this spring, 
and are looking forward to a pleasant 
and prosperous term. 

Postscript: 

The district convention, the first 
in this district, has Just been held. 
The Cornell chapter was greatly 
pleased to play host to the delegates 
and feel that the results of the pa- 
pers and discussions as well as the 
opportunity to meet the brothers 
from so many chapters will prove of 
lasting benefit. 

The night the convention opened 
the Woodford prize, a $100 medal 
was won by Bro. Chas. H. Tuck, *06»

'74 — ^A. J. Lamoureux writes thus 
in the "New York Times: 

"I have been deeply impressed not 
only with the complaint that we are 
not getting our rightful share of 
the trade of South America, but 
also with our failure to understand 
the reasons for it. It shows, I some- 
times think, that we can not or will 



not comprehend what runs counter 
to our prejudices and purposes. ♦ • 

"The situation in South America 
is a very simple one. The dominant 
elements there are Europeans, or of 
European descent: there is a large 
annual immigration from Europe; 
their education and literature are 
European in character;* ♦ • their 
loans, the capital of their railways, 
port improvements, gas works, water 
works, &c comes from Europe. ♦ • 
In short, what they have and what 
they are are chiefiy due to European 
co-operation. 

"Against all this, what have we to 
show? The protecting aegis of the 
Monroe Doctrine, which they have 
never asked for, which they fear, and 
which they do not want except on 
terms we are unwilling to grant. 
They are firmly convinced that our 
motives are sinister, and they know 
that our trade purposes are unfair. 
We ask favors, but, apart from Bra- 
zll, we are unwilling to grant them."

DE PAUW. 
Active Membership, 12. 

THIS term our active membership 
has been decreased by three 
owing to the fact that Bro. Smith, 
'07, Bro. Reed, '08, and Bro. Penland, 
'09, could not return. However we 
will not lose these valuable members 
long for they will be with us again 
next fail. 

Just now great interest is being 
manifested in baseball. Bro. Cook, 
'07, of our Illinois Chapter, was se- 
cured to coach DePauw's nine and he 
is diligently training a good team. A 
schedule of fifteen games has been 
arranged, seven of which are to be 
played here. Bro. R. L. Renick, '06, 
is at left field. 

Each fraternity here has organized 
a baseball nine and a schedule of 
games has been arranged. Last year 
we lost the cup by one game. This 
year we hope to win the cup. 

Our chapter has organized an or- 
chestra consisting of the following 
brothers: Strong, '09, piano; Talyor, 
'07. violin; Spencer, '09, cornet; Al- 
ford, '09, cornet; Watson, '06, drum. 

Commencement Day will be on

HARVARD* 
Active Membership, 49. 

THE past three months have been 
the busiest of the year for the 
Harvard Chapter, for the annual play 
came off in the end of March, alter 
we had been working at it for two 
months. The play chosen this year 
was Heywood's "The Wise Woman of 
Hogsdon," and the general opinion 
seemed to be that it was the best 
Elizabethan revival we had done. 
The annual play has come to be onr 
chief activity in college, and it cer- 
tainly has helped us a great deal in 
establishing our position here, as 
well as furnishing a strong bond of 
common interest which is a necessity 
in so large a chapter as ours. The 
graduates' night performance, on 
March 26, was an enthusiastic affair, 
with many old Delta U's present, as 
well as a number of brothers from 
neighboring chapters, all of whom 
seemed to enjoy the performance, 
and helped by their applause. Other 
performances were given in Cam- 
bridge and Boston, the one on April 
5 in Brattle hall being followed by 
an informal dance. The last per- 
formance was given in the Barn, at 
Wellesley College at the invitation 
of the English department, on the 
afternoon of April 14, and was fol- 
lowed by a reception by Bro. Ham- 
ilton, Brown, '88, Professor of Music

at Wellesley, to whom the chapter is 
indebted for a very pleasant evening. 

Aside from the all-absorbing inter- 
est of the play, athletics is now the 
chief occupation. A ball nine is be- 
ing organized, with Holcombe as cap- 
tain, and games are being ancanged 
with the chapters at Tufts and Tech- 
nology, as well as with local clubs. 
The material is good, the interest 
strong, and we hope to put our riv- 
als to sleep in good style. Besides 
this, Holcombe is captain of the Phi 
Beta Kappa nine, who play Yale 
soon, and Hurlln, Jones, and others 
are anxiously working for places, 
while Galbraith, '99, will pitch for 
Harvard. Turning to more serious 
work, Hanley, Groves, Kerans, and 
Grlng won places in the interclass 
track meet, and seem sure of making 
the team. Forte is on the Junior 
crew, Parke Is on the Sophomore, 
and Wright and Holmes are rowing 
with the second Senior crew. 

Class day and Commencement are 
getting dangerously near for the 
Seniors now, and Hurlln, Holcombe, 
Holmes. Liord, Brlggs, Jones and 
Underbill are entitled to try for 
Commencement parts. Hurlln Is an 
assistant in music for next year, and 
Holcombe in Government, while he 
is now assisting in Economics. Bro. 
Kendall K. Smith, '04, has won the 
Charles Eliot Norton Travelling Fel- 
lowship for next year, the highest 
honor in the classical department, and 
will study in Athens next year. Ar- 
thur Black, '04, is first marshal of 
the graduating law class; Groves, 
'06, has been reappointed secretary 
of the Phillips Brooks House Asso- 
ciation, and will again have charge 
of the philantropic activities of the 
University; Eustis is a director of the 
Harvard Dining Association, and 
Brumley, Hlrsch and Forte are on 
the 1907 Round Table. 

A letter of sympathy was sent re- 
cently to the chapters at Stanford 
and Berkeley for the great calamity 
which has overtaken their institu- 
tions. The disaster was brought 
nearly home to us, as Ruf us Kimball,

while at the Law School. We wish 
the chapters on the coast all good 



luck In the new beginning that they 
have to make.

OUR first initiation since we be- 
came a chapter of Delta Upsi- 
lon occurred April 28, at which time 
Albert Penn, '07, and Thomas W. 
Samuels, '09, became members of the 
fraternity. 

This year we shall lose seven men 
by graduation: Frost, Armeling, 
Rump, Corrigan, Bergert, Melvin and 
Wagoner. Besides this Bros. Har- 
man and Malcolm, both '03, who have 
been teaching in the University, ex- 
pect to take up active work in Bngin- 
eering next year and will not be with 
us. This will make a considerable 
change in our ranks, but we hope 
that the chapter will continue to ad- 
vance as it has done. 

Our annual was held on March 2. 
In connection with this we had a 
house party from Thursday until Sun- 
day. During this time the chapter 
house was turned over to our guests, 
and we found lodging at the differ- 
ent fraternity houses. This exchange 
of courtesies among fraternities is 
common here whenever a chapter 
gives a house party, and does much 
to promote a friendly feeling among 
the fraternity men. 

Baseball is now attracting most of 
our attention, and from present indi- 
cations Illinois will add another pen- 
nant to her long list of baseball 
championships. Demmitt, '07, is 
playing right field, and Penn, '07, 



Wasson, '08, and Taylor, '09, are 
on the squad. 

Bro. Cook, '07, is at DePaaw 
coaching their varsity baseball team. 

The petition of Zeta Nu, a local 
organization, for a charter from Delta 
Oamma has been granted, and a 
chapter of that sorority will be es- 
tablished here at once. Among tlie 
successful petitioners are Miss Flor^ 
ence Curry, a sister of Bro. Curry of 
Wisconsin, and Miss Ricketts, a sis- 
ter of Bro. Ricketts of Northwestern. 

Illinois has a chapter of Delta 
Sigma Rho, the new honorary debate 
ing fraternity. This fraternity has 
chapters at all of the large universi- 
ties of the middle West, and is made 
up of men who have represented 
their universities in oratorical or de- 
bating contests. Our chapter is rep- 
resented by Bro. Samuels, '09, who 
was a member of the Illinois-Indiana 
debating team. 

About a month ago President 
James called a meeting of all the fra- 
ternity men in the University, and 
laid before them a plan for holding 
a national fraternity convention at 
Urbana next year. Bach fraternity 
represented here has appointed a rep- 
resentative, and from these a commit- 
tee has been selected to make the 
necessary arrangements. The pur- 
pose of the convention will be to dis- 
cuss fraternity problems and take 
such action as will promote the best 
interests of fraternities in general. 

Bros. Cornell, DePauw '09, Foster, 
Harvard '95, Bennett, Cornell '05, 
and Crowley, Michigan '00, have vis- 
ited us within the past semester. Bro.

Excavation has been begun for the 
new Auditorium on the South Cam- 
pus. This building has been badly 
needed as for a number of years we 
have had no building in which the 
entire student body could meet. The 
new building was designed by Black- 
all of Boston, and will have a seating 
capacity of 3,500.

LAFAYETTE. 
Actiye Membership, 23. 

THIS term, the last and most 
pleasant of all, is slipping by 
much too quickly for the three Sen- 
iors who go out this year. Yet, as we 
leave, we have the satisfaction of 
knowing that all is well for Delta U. 
at Lafayette, and that there is a 
good firm nucleus for the work of 
next year. There is already a list of 
fully twenty names of oncoming men 
as a "starter" for the rushing season 
in the fall. Probably eight or nine 
men will be chosen giving us ample 
opportunities to select the most desir- 
able and promising men. 

We are looking forward to our an- 
nual banquet in June with a good 
deal of pleasure and interest because 
it marks the completion of our twen- 
tieth year and the beginning of our 
twenty-first in Delta U. and we trust 
that we as a Chapter may continue 
to grow and prosper in our maturity 
as in our youth. 

Baseball is now receiving the atten- 
tion of the college and we are look- 
ing forward to a successful season. 
The new diamond has been com- 
pleted and the team will no longer be 
liandicapped for a suitable place to 
get into shape. 

The Chapter is represented on the 
Varsity by Bros More, '06, and Kln- 
sey, '08; and on the class teams by 
Bros. Craig and Wade, '08, and At- 
wood, Ross and Walker, '09. 

Bros. Reese, '08, and ficCaa, '09, 
are on the Varsity track team. 

Bro. Reeder, '06, has a part in the 
Sock and Buskin which is soon to 
give a performance in Paterson, N. J. 
He has also been elected Prophet for 
the Class Day exercises of Commence- 
ment Week. 

Bro. Bacon, '07, has been elected 
President of Y. M. C. A. and of

SINCE the publication of the last

taken place at Lehigh which are go- 
ing to bring about important changes 
in student life here. We are to have 
a University settlement — a dormitory, 
a commons, and a students' club. 

President Drinker, who has work- 
ed hard on the settlement idea, an- 
nounced in Chapel recently that 
Drown Memorial Hall, the dormitory 
and the commons are now assured

which is to cost about $300,000. The 
rest of the fund will be raised by 
the alumni. 

Owing to certain obstacles con- 
nected with the charter of the Uni- 
versity, it has been impossible for 
men wishing to erect buildings for

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



the UnlyerBity, to do so, and this is 
the first large gift ever received b^ 
Lehigh from an outside source. 

The money for Drown Hall was 
raised by the alumni and the fund Is 
complete. When these buildings are 
finished student life will center far 
more about the Campus than at pres- 
ent and It is expected that there will 
be a movement among the fraterni- 
ties to build chapter houses on or 
near the Campus. 

A more complete change than this 
would make in student life here can 
scarcely be imagined. 

The fraternity houses are now 
scattered over the two Bethlehems, 
the distance between the most wide- 
ly separated ones being very nearly 
two miles. The non-fraternity men 
live in private houses and are even 
more widely separated. 

Affairs in the house have been go- 
ing along smoothly. We held our 
third initiation on March 2, taking in 
three men of the Freshman class. 
Bros. Reeder, '06, More, '06, and 
Hamilton, '05, assisted at the cere- 
mony. 

Bro. Mendoza, '03, re-entered col- 
lege in February for the purpose of 
obtaining his degree of Mechanical 
Engineer, thus raising our number 
to twenty. 

The basketball season at Lehigh 
proved successful. We made a good 
showing in all our games, and won 
seven out of thirteen. We defeated 
Albright (104 to 8), the Indians, 
Penn. State, Susquehanna, Swarth- 
more (one game), Stevens, and C. 
C. N. Y.; and were defeated by Penn., 
Princeton, Manhattan, Swarthmore 
(one game), Pratt Institute, and 
Bucknell. 

The baseball team took a southern 
trip during the Easter vacation. 
Bro. Munro, '08, played second base. 
Bro. Ahrens, '09, is out for short- 
stop. 

Bros. Mendoza, '03 and '06, Smith, 
'06, and Walton, '09, are on the Lar 
crosse squad. Bro. Mendoza played 
third defense in the C. C. N. T. game. 
The team has beaten Columbia, C. 
C. N. Y., and Virginia; tied Cornell; 
and been beaten by the Philadelphia 
Lacrosse Club. 



Bro. Marshall, '06, underwent an 
operation just before the Easter va- 
cation and is still in the hospital 
(April 25), but is recovering rap- 
idly. 

Bros. Denlinger, '06, Barnshaw, 
'06, and Dunn, '07, attended the 
"Jerome-Hughes" banquet It was 
great! 

Bros. Galvin, ex-'05, and Hunter,

cently. W. A. EARNSHAW.

Active Membership, 7. 

THIS letter finds the Marietta 
Chapter with seven active men» 
Bros. H. P. Sparling and W. C. Spar- 
ling having gone into business. Onr 
numbers, however, are by no means 
an indication of our condition. We 
may say without any "optimistic va- 
porings" that the general prosperity 
of the chapter is better than it has 
been for several years. We lose only 
one man by graduation, Bro. H. H. 
Mitchell, who is second in his class. 
We have pledged the best six men in 
the graduating class of the prep, 
school, which gives us a good start 
for next year. 

We recently found it advisable to 
purchase a billiard table which has 
since been Installed in our rooms. 

Our thoughts at this time of the 
year are chiefly engaged in making 
plans for camp, which is the crown- 
ing event of our fraternity year. We 
have been compelled to give up the 
place which has been ours for the 
last five years, and will camp about 
five miles farther up the Muskin- 
gum river. 

In college activities we have cap- 
tured several important offices. In 
this respect the contest is not so 
much to get the office as to do the 
work better than it has been done 
before. Bro. L. G. Stealy, t)7, has 
been elected student manager of the 
football team. 

With the recent introduction of 
two-cent fares into Ohio we trust 
that the Ohio chapter may feel not 
quite so isolated as formerly. 

Bro. A. W. Shaw, Minnesota, '90»

THE past month has been a busy 
one for the McGill Chapter. 

All the students in the Faculties of 
Law, Arts and Applied Science have 
now finished their sessional examina- 
tions» the last exam, having been held 
on Saturday. The results were, on 
the whole, very satisfactory to us all. 

The chapter house seems quite de- 
serted now, for the majority of the 
brothers have returned to their re- 
spective homes, where they are busy 
making preparations for the summer 
vacation. The final year men, how- 
ever, are waiting over for the annual 
convocation and other ceremonies at- 
tendant on graduation. 

By graduation this year we shall 
lose five men — Bros. McCuaig, Dav- 
idson, Pedley and Hadley taking B. 
Sc. degrees, and Bro. Lindsay the 
degree of M. D. 

On March 24th, at our annual 
meeting, the reports showed a very 
satisfactory year. Since the last an- 
nual meeting our membership has 
been increased by four; this shows 
the new rushing system, which we 
have adopted, to be a success. 

Bro. Waugh was recently elected 
president of the Athletic Association. 
Bro. Beckwith is secretary of the 
Canadian Intercollegiate Rugby 
Football Union; also secretary of the 
Athletic Association, and president of 
the football club. Bro. SpafTord is 
manager of the football team. 

Sixty-eight degrees were conferred 
in the Applied Science and Law Fac- 
ulties at the convocation, April 27. 
Bros. McCuaig, Davidson, Pedley and 
Hadley were well up on the list of 
the graduating class in Science and 
received the degree of B. Sc. Bro. 
Woodyatt took second place in third 
year Electricaf Engineering. Bro. 
Walker took first rank, general stand- 
ing, and prize of $25 in second year 
Law. 



Bro. W. Stewart secured first rank, 
general standing, scholarship of $100 
and first prize in Roman Law, in first 
year Law. Bro. T. Stewart, of the 
same year, won first rank, general 
standing, scholarship of $100, and 
second prize in Roman Law. 

We already have several good men 
in view for next year, and if every- 
thing turns out as expected, the Mc- 
Gill Chapter will be stronger than 
ever, when college opens in Septem- 
ber.

WE have just returned from the 
Spring recess and are set- 
tling down to the final efforts in this 
year's work. Michigan Chapter has 
had a prosperous year. Our colleg- 
iate work has necessarily taken pre- 
cedence over other lines of college 
actiylties, but we have nevertheless 
received our share of honors along 
other lines. 

Bro. Sterling, '08, was recently 
elected assistant manager of the Var- 
sity Musical Clubs. This puts him 
in line for the managership next year. 
Bro. Gradle, '06, has again won the

WELL, boys, the beautiful 
springtime is at hand once 
more. I presume some of our other 
brothers are more fortunate in this 
respect. With us the grass is Just 
coming out and the campus begins 
to take on a real summery look. 

Bro. Fisher, '08, is back after a 
sickness extending over a good share 
of last term. 

Junior Prom was enjoyable for 
everyone but the Juniors, who prob- 
ably did not feel particularly Jubilant, 
as it was not a success financially. 

In the competition trials for Soph- 
omore Prize Speaking we secured 
four places out of eight, our men 
being Bros. Richmond, Hayford, 
Holmes and Fisher. With this repre-

our share of prizes. 

The tennis season has Just opened 
and many of the brothers are look-

several candidates out. Aside from 
Bro. Holmes, '08, who is captain, 
Bros. Hayford, '08, Coleman, '09, and

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



However, this is not true of the en- 
tire campus, for it is greatly torn up 
wliere three new buildings are in pro- 
cess of construction. One, the Alice 
Shevlin Hall or Women's Building, is 
being erected as a memorial hall by 
Mr. Thomas Shevlin on the site of the 
old Main, which was burned a year 
ago last fall. The second is a bacteri- 
ological laboratory now almost com- 
pleted. It is said that it will be one 
of the finest in the country. The 
third is the new Main Building, which 
Is to cost, with equipment, $410,000. 

As examinations are only a few 
weeks distant, the more studious are 
laboring hard in preparation, al- 
though many are interested in ath- 
letics. Owing to the lateness of the 
spring and the former early closing 
of the college year, Biinnesota has 
never had a first-class baseball team, 
but this year college closes two weeks 
later, and the prospects for a cham- 
pionship team are excellent Our 
track team is laboring diligently and 
promises to carry off many honors. 
The Tennis Club is also actively en- 
gaged in their chosen sport, the 
courts having been put into excel- 
lent condition. 

In the past Minnesota's great rally- 
ing point has been around football, 
and as a result we have had many 
championship teams. When the re- 
cent football agitation arose and a 
revision of the rules was effected 
much disappointment was felt among 
the students, but they are now pre- 
pared to take things as they come, 
and have new hopes for the continu- 
ance of a game as good as the for- 
mer, or better. 

This year has been one of great 
significance in our history: the fac- 
ulty have assumed the right to con- 
trol student affairs to the extent that 
they have a veto power over any act 
about to be executed by any student 
organiaztion. They have also organ- 
ized an auditing committee, which 
with avidity delves into the workings 
of all student organizations. These 
steps which have been taken by the 
faculty are very unpopular among the 
students, but it is expepcted that they 
will place the student enterprises on 
a safer basis and prevent mismanage- 



ment. The "Minnesota Daily," the 
official paper of the University, has 
dissolved its close corporation, and is 
to be operated in the future by the 
subscribers. The "Minnesota BCaga- 
zine" has changed from an oligarchi- 
cal to a democratic form of manage- 
ment; for in the past the retiring 
board of editors elected their suc- 
cessors, while now the subscribers 
elect them. 

Our chapter has organized an or- 
chestra of twelve pieces. With this 
club, in which are a number of ex- 
cellent musicians, and with the as- 
sistance of our vocalists, we gave an 
entertainment. Judging from the 
compliments received we may well 
assume that it was a success. With 
the proceeds we purchased a new 
bookcase for our library, and added 
to the furnishings of the house. 

The academic fraternities have or- 
ganized a baseball league. As there 
are seventeen of these fraternities, 
much interest in being taken In the 
contests. A few weeks ago the last 
of a series of games was played to 
decide the inter-fraternity bowling 
championship. The Zeta Psi team 
won by a large margin. Some time 
during the latter part of May the 
Greeks will hold a track meet Last 
year Delta U. won third place, and 
obtained as a prize a beautiful leather 
pennant made by one of the sorori- 
ties. The fraternity men of our col- 
lege further meet in their class or- 
ganizations. The Triangle Club and 
the Tillikum Club, the former made 
up of Sophomores, the latter of 
Freshmen. These societies are of 
great value in that they bring the 
men of the various chapters into 
social relations, and thus tend to fos- 
ter friendliness. 

The Annual Banquet of Delta U's 
in Minnesota was held on May 7. 
The Minnesota Delta U. Alumni As- 
sociation, the Minnesota Delta U. 
Club, and the active chapter all unite 
for this banquet. 

We await eagerly the summer 
holidays, and extend to all our bro- 
thers a hearty wish that they may 
have a happy and profitable vacation, 
and to all the graduates our best 
wishes for their success in life.

NEBRASKA. 
Active Membership, 25. 

NEBRASKA commends the arti- 
cles which have recently ap- 
peared in the "Quarterly*' urging 
chapter editors to abide strictly by 
facts, allowing prognosticattona to 
develop themselves. It is usually 
when the future looks brightest that 
something happens. We plead guilty 
to the fault, but sincerely promise 
our alumni readers that hereafter 
whatever they read in our letters 
shall be strictly the existing, present 
truth. 

The material growth of the Uni- 
versity during the past year has been 
gratifying. Two buildings have re- 
cently been completed — ^the Brace 
laboratory of physics and the Admin- 
istration building. The Brace labor- 
atory is situated on the west side of 
the campus and the Administration 
building on the south, just across 
trom the Conservatory. One wing of 
the Museum and Geological labora- 
tory is being constructed. It is situ- 
ated just north of the Armory and 
when completed in the fall will give 
the Medical and Zoological depart- 
ments the entire use of their build- 
ing. Excavation has begun for the 
Temple, the building of which stir- 
red up considerable agitation over 
the State because Rockefeller con- 
tributed two-thirds of the money for 
its construction. The erection of the 
building is significant, first, of the 
fearless stand which Chancellor An- 
drews has taken throughout the 
whole controversy, and secondly, of 
the fact that it is situated outside the 
campus. It has been felt for a long 
time that the campus was overcrowd- 
ed and this seems to be the begin- 
ning of a future enlargment. 

But the bulding improvement has 
not been confined to the University. 
Phi Kappa Psi has purchased a cor- 
ner lot at 14 th and R streets and 
plans the erection of a house in the 
near future. It is reported upon 
good authority that Sigma Chi has 
purchased a three story house at 
518 No. 16th, which is now occupied 
by Pi Beta Phi. Phi Delta Theta 
rents their house from one of their 
old members. 



At the indoor track meet held on 
Charter day, several University rec- 
ords were smashed. Bro. Hagensick, 
'06, in the pole vault, cleared the bar 
at 11 feet, % inches, while Bro. Win- 
ters won the 25 yard dash in 3 1-5. 
True to our new resolves, we will 
say nothing as to the track team, 
but the above records show that our 
chances are bright. In the class 
meets, Bros. Sage and Winters were 
members of the freshman relay team 
which won the University champion- 
ship. 

Interest is running high over the 
interfraternity baseball league. At 
present only the first series have been 
played, and the strength of the teams 
is so nearly equal that the most en- 
thusiastic fans refuse to predict the 
pennant winner. Our first game was 
with the Alpha Tau's, which we won 
by runnng in eight scores in the last 
inning. The games are being ably 
reported by Bro. Swan, '08, who ia 
athletic editor of the "Nebraskan." 

The Freshmen have refused to be 
outdone by the other classes and 
have formed an inter-fraternity so- 
ciety of their own, called the Spikes. 
Their avowed object of organization 
is for better acquaintance. Bros. 
Sears and Smith are members. 

This year it was voted by all the 
classes to combine the various publi- 
cations heretofore issued into one 
book to be called the "Comhusker," 
which will be issued annually. Bro. 
Burr, '08, was elected business man- 
ager for the initial volume, which 
comes out next year. This makes 
three successive issues of our col- 
lege annual that Delta Upsilon men 
have run. 

Bro. Davis,'06, has been elected to 
membership in Theta Kappa Nu, the 
honorary fraternity of scholarship 
for law students. 

We have just had enjoyable visits 
from Bro. P. H. Thomson, '99, now 
professor of German at Grinnel Col- 
lege, Iowa, and from Bro. J. W. Bat- 
tin, Cornell, '90, a leading attorney

AS we enter upon the last month 
of our college year, we feel 
confident that the New Tork Chapter 
has done Its share of work, and re-

very successful season along every 
line, for the men have as a whole 
taken part In all the general college

In appreciation of the work done 
by Bro. Thompson, '08, the gymnas-

Active Membership, 12. 

THE Chapter gave its annual for- 
mal party at the Ravina Cas- 
ino on the night of April 21, and it 
was one of the most successful that 
we have ever given. The place, the 
music and the guests were all condu- 
cive to an enjoyable time. Our 
chaperones were from among the 
alumni and the parents of several of 
the chapter members. 

They were Mr. and Mrs. Mark W. 
Cresop, Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Grant 
Sisson, Mr. and Mrs. Carl David King, 
Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Singleton, Rev. 
and Mrs. H. Gratton Moore, Dr. and 
Mrs. Theo. J. Redelings, Mr. and Mrs. 
Wm. H. Knapp, and Mr. and Mrs. 
Thos. Diven Huff. 

Besides those from about school, 
we had as our guests the members 
of the Chicago Chapter. On May 4 
they will give their annual party, and 
a large number of the fellows expect 
to return the courtesy which they 
showed us by accepting our invita- 
tion. Special cars were run both go- 
ing and returning. The programs 
were in the fraternity colors, and con- 
tained an insert of the coat of arms. 

On April 9 the chapter give a 
"smoker to its alumni. Tobacco, 
cider and doughnuts were provided. 
The freshmen entertained by singing 
original verses, and succeeded in 
making a rhyme for every alumnus 
present. As it grew later all gath- 
ered in the parlor and sang the fra- 



ternity songs. Dr. Pooley, one of the 
charter members of the chapter, grave 
an interesting talk about the old dayB 
and he promised to bring out all the 
"old boys" some time this spring. 

The annual play given by the Jun- 
ior class was presented at the Ra- 
vina Theater on March 31 with Bro. 
W. Clay Smoot in one of the leadings 
parts. 

Since the last chapter letter waa 
written Bro. Elmer J. Schafer has 
been elected editor-in-chief of "The 
Northwestern," the University tri- 
weekly and later was elected Presi- 
dent of the Toung Men's Christian 
Association. 

As class track captain we have 
Bro. Scott of the Senior team and 
Bro. Dorner of the Sophomore team. 

Bro. Swift's freshman basketball 
team closed the season without meet- 
ing with a defeat 

At the class track meet held this 
spring Bro. Gilbreth, football cap- 
tain-elect, captured almost half of 
the points made by his class. Bro. 
Dorner and Swift were also success- 
ful point winners. 

We are fortunate this year in los- 
ing only one man through gradua- 
tion. All the other members of the 
chapter expect to return next fall. 
Bro. Scott has occupied a pulpit in 
Braidwood, 111., for several years and 
upon gn^aduation will continus his 
duties as a pastor. 

It will be of interest to the alumni 
to know that Dr. Harris of the Jacob 
Tome Institute in Port Deposit, Md., 
is coming to Northwestern as Presi- 
dent of the University. An effort has 
been made to have him here in time 
for the commencement exercises.

vard Chapter, who is the head of the 
Economics department here, has re- 
cently been appointed by the Civic

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



"B. J. Rldgway, editor of Every- 
body's Magazine, sat in one of the 
galleries in the Senate to-day listen- 
ing to the railroad-rate debate. Mr. 
Ridgway wanted to see Senator La 
Follette, and he went down to his 
committee-room, leaving his hat on 
the gallery seat. He got back about 
two minutes before the Senate went 
into executive session, and was shooed 
out with all the others. He left his 
hat there again. 

"The Senate was in executive ses- 
sion for about an hour and a half. 
Mr. Ridgway tried to get a sergeant- 
at-arms to get his hat. He was told 
nobody but a Senator could go in, and 
that his hat must stay there until the 
doors were opened. It stayed there 
too, and he waited. 

** 'I am fully convinced,' Mr. Ridg- 
way said, 'that these executive ses- 
sions are really held behind closed 
doors.' " — Clipping.

THE winter term of the university 
calendar has been brought to 
a successful conclusion. We are now 
quite well installed in the work of 
the Spring term which will be con- 
cluded about the second week in 
June. Bro. Fried, '09, was called to 
his home in Cleveland and has not 
been able as yet to return to his 
duties in the University. His absence 
is a distinct loss to the Chapter. 

February 17th three undergradu- 
ates were initiated making the chap- 
ter roll the largest in point of num 
hers in the history of the chapter. 

During the last session of the Ohio 
Legislature coRsiderable importance 
was attached to the development and 



growth of the "State University." 
Two other colleges in this state have 
been the recipients of a considerable 
endowment by the state legislature. 
Those colleges have endeavored to 
make use of the money given to them 
by the State in the equipping of col- 
leges for the pursuitof scientific study 
and post-gn^aduate work. A Bill was 
introduced in the House by Represen- 
tative Eagleson to make a permanent 
levy for the university which would 
annually net a sum large enough to 
enable the university authorities to 
meet the growing demands made 
upon the University. The two smaller 
colleges contested the passage of this 
bill. All possible pressure was brought 
to bear upon the members of the 
State legislature for the purpose of 
defeating the measure. The issue was 
''shall there be one great university 
in Ohio, or shall there be three 
smaller colleges?" 

The University, however, won a 
signal victory. The two other col- 
leges were given a slight donation 
upon the condition that they confine 
their efforts to the college of liberal 
arts and the development of normal 
school work. In the preamble of the 
bill, as it was finally passed by the 
legislature, it was declared to be the 
policy of the state to "build up and 
maintain one great University and 
that University shall be and Is the 
Ohio State University." 

April 20 and 21 the first carnival 
in the history of the niversity was 
given at the Armory. It met with 
pronounced success and the various 
organizations which were in charge 
have decided to make the event a 
permanent affair. The proceeds are 
to be given to the athletic association 
for the improvement of the athletic 
field and other necessary equipment. 
The exhibit of this chapter at the car- 
nival seemed to meeft with great 
favor. 

The baseball season has opened. 
Felger, '06, is captain of the team 
and is covering the sack at third base. 
Barrington, *09, was successful in 
making the position of short-stop, 
and is relied upon for his heavy hit- 
ting. 

The basketball season was termin- 
ated with all games won by the uni- 



CHAPTER LETTERS AND ALUMNI NEWS

verslty team, save one, which was 
played abroad. Barrlngton. '09, play- 
ed a good game as left-forward, hav- 
ing a larger number of points scored 
to his credit than any other player. 

Track team work Is receiving con- 
siderable attention and notwithstand- 
ing the absence of several of the 
team's former "stars," much hope Is 
entertained that Coach Sweetland 
will be as successful In developing a 
winning team, as he was during last 
season. Schory, '09, of football fame 
and Perry, '09, are promising candi- 
dates. 

In an Indoor meet with Indiana 
during the month of March our team 
won a decisive victory over the 
"Hooslers," who have always been 
*'SUte's" "hoodoo." 

A woman's building, for which an 
appropriation was made by the last 
legislature, will be erected soon on 
the university campus. The new 
Chemistry building and the Mining 
and Ceramics buildings are complet- 
ed, which relieves the congested con- 
dition of the other buildings. 

Our annual reception and dance 
was given March 6, many of our 
alumni being present. We had a 
thoroughly delightful time. We are 
anticipating with a great deal of 
pleasure the annual picnic-dance 
which the chapter will give early In 
June.

Active Membership, 26. 

THE college year closes with a de- 
gree of uncertainty concerning 
the future of the Pennsylvania chap- 
ter. We have decided to vacate the 
house we are now occupying and have 
as yet no other house In view. It Is 



a hard matter to find -a house near 
the college that Is suitable for a fra- 
ternity and we have been hampered 
In the past, by a house which we con- 
sidered not up to what we ought to 
have. If desirable quarters are 
found before the fall term opens, 
next year ought to be a good one for 
the chapter. 

The University has again suffered 
loss through fire — the Mechanical En- 
gineering building and Power plant 
being burned. The damage was con- 
siderable, but not much time was lost 
to the students as they were able to 
take up their work In the new en- 
gineering building which Is just about 
completed. This Is one of the biggest 
and best equipped buildings of Its 
kind In the country and will gn^eatly 
Increase the facilities for the study 
of engineering at Pennsylvania. 

The Mask and Wig play, "Shylock 
& Co., Bankers," was the usual suc- 
cess that Is looked for every Easter. 
It was produced fifteen times In all 
and every time to a crowded house 
of enthusiastic Pennsylvania support- 
ers or Interested and delighted out- 
siders. 

This year bids fair to be one of the 
best In athletics that the University 
has ever had. We have already won 
four championships and the baseball 
and track teams and the crew have 
all started out well. We are repre- 
sented on the river by Atkln, Galey 
and Bogardus. 

Galey was on the Ivy Ball commit- 
tee and Johnston on the Sophomore 
banquet committee. 

The annual chapter banquet was 
the best thing the chapter did dur- 
ing the winter. Bros. Harris, Swarth- 
more, '02, and Whitman, Brown, '87, 
made addresses. Bro. Mockrldge, 
Williams, *96, was able to be present 
for a short time and delighted his 
audience with a few anecdotes of old 
times. About 80 Delta U's were pres- 
ent, the largest number at a chapter 
dinner In our history. 

We extend wishes for a good sum- 
mer to all Delta U's and hope we may 
run across some of you during the 
vacation.

SINCE the writing of our last let- 
ter, nothing of great import- 
ance has occurred, although in March 
the Spring examinations were safe- 
ly encountered; but with the coming 
of spring all athletic interests are 
centered in the track and baseball 
teams, while everyone is also look- 
ing forward to commencement week. 
Bros. Wood, '08, and Powle, '09, are 
doing excellent work on the track 
team and Bro. Munger, '08, retains 
his position as first base on the Var- 
sity nine, which has unusually bright 
prospects of a successful season. 

Bro. Wilson, '06, has been appoint-

Debate, to be held during commence- 
ment and Bro. Napier, '07, is alter- 
nate on the Junior team. Bro. Wal- 
ter has been elected Senior member 
of the University Council. 

Although we regret that seven of 
our strongest brothers are groing to 
leave us in June, yet we are looking 
forward to a strong incoming class 
for next year, for already in our ac- 
tive spring rushing we have pledged 
four of the best men in the High 
Schools here. Bro. Hunter, formerly 
of the class of '03 has re-entered col- 
lege this term In the class of '08 to 
complete his course. 

On April 21 and 22 we had the 
pleasure of entertaining three of our 
Tufts brothers, who were with the 
Tufts musical clubs on their annual 
western trip. 

At this writing we are all center- 
ing our interests in the preparation 
of the annual chapter play, which is 
to be given on May 25. Also prepa-

UNIVERSITY work has ended for 
the year and the men of the 
chapter have scattered to their 
homes. Those of us who are left are 
either helping in the relief work in 



San Francisco or studying the geol- 
ogy of the earthquake under the di- 
rection of Professor Branner. The 
work of clearing up the debris at the 
University has begun and plans are 
being rapidly finished for the repair- 
ing of the damaged buildings. With- 
in a few weeks the work of recon- 
struction will have begun and by the 
last of August everything will be 
ready for the resumption of work. 
Neither the Chapter as a whole nor 
any of the men individually have 
suffered from the earthquake. The 
Chapter House is practically unin- 
jured.

AT the mid-year elections of tJie 
Senior Class, Bro. William C. 
Walker was unanimously elected 
class president, thereby receiving un- 
doubtedly the highest honor which 
his classmates could confer. Bro. 
Cresson, '08, has been elected a mem- 
ber of the 1908 "Halcyon" staff, 
which will issue next season's year- 
book. 

The College Oratorical Contest^ 
held on February 13, resulted in 
Bro. Peaslee, '07, winning second 
prize and Bro. A. W. Broomlee, '06» 
third honors. In the Extemporaneous 
Speaking Contest on February 25, 
Bro Heed, '07, won the second prize. 
Five other brothers qualified for the 
team of ten men to enter the con- 
test. 

Our sixth annual Chapter dance, 
held at the Roosevelt in Philadel- 
phia on March 8, was probably the 
most successful we have ever held, 
over forty brothers having been pres- 
ent, and Bro. Booth, '07, is to be con- 
gratulated upon his management of 
the function. 

Andrew Carnegie has recently

We are very glad to hear of the 
Initiation on March 24 of the local 
Algonquin Cluh Into Phi Sigma 
Kappa fraternity. They have al-

welcome them Into the Greek world. 

The men of the Senior Class have 
lately been making a successful en- 
deavor to blot out the Inter-fratern- 
Ity distinctions and bad feeling, 
which we regret to say have existed 
here for the past few years, by a 
series of Informal smokers held at 
the different fraternity rooms. The 
gatherings are becoming more and 
more congenial and are much enjoyed 
by all, while the Idea Is certainly to 
be commended. 

The basketball team completed a 
▼ery successful season on March 10, 
haying won ten games out of four- 
teen played. 

Coach Frank Grimes has the la- 
crosse team in good shape; three 
games have been played and our 
only defeat was at the hands of the 
Crescent Athletic Club of New York. 
Bros. Walker, Lamb, Perkins, East- 
wick, G. L. Broomell, Booth and 
Darlington are members of the team. 

Bro. Henrle, '07, captain of the 
track team, and Bro. Heed, '07, are

which represented Swarthmore at the 
University of Pennsylvania Relay 
Races on April 28 at Franklin Field. 

We regret to say that Bro. Regi- 
nald C. Price has left College to ac- 
cept a position In Baltimore. With 
eight men In the Senior Class, the 
prospects are for a small chapter to 
start with next Fall, but as there Is 
a number of desirable men In the en- 
tering class, we have bright hopes for 
the future.

our Chapter house windows we over- 
look the rapid construction of five 
new buildings, all being rushed to 
completion for occupancy in the near 
future. 

Athletics take a prominent place 
Just now. Our University basket- 
ball team finished a most successful 
season, leaving the collegiate cham- 
pionhip m doubt with Syracuse as a 
possible candidate for this honor. 
Track men have been busy a num-

THE most important event of the 
last quarter is "Junior Week," 
which is the one week in particular 
that the "Tech." man devotes to fuss- 
ing and having a good time in general. 
What with the Fraternity recep- 
tions, the Tech show, the Musical 
Club's concert and dance, the "Jun- 
ior Prom" and the issue of the 
Junior book, "Technique," there Is 
something doing about all of the 
time.

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



For the first time in four years the 
Tech Chapter of Delta U. gave a re- 
ception and it was certainly a great 
affair. The house was never in bet- 
ter condition for such an occasion 
and what with the flowers and music, 
the lunch and last, but not least, the 
large number of the fair sex present, 
it was an event which will long be 
remembered as a very happy one. 
The Musical Club's concert and dance 
was held on the following evening 
and has become quite a popular occa- 
sion with Tech men. 

The show this year, entitled "The 
Freshman," was one of the most suc- 
cessful plays ever given by Tech men. 
Bro. Vonnegut, '08, was again one 
of the principals in the show. Bro. 
Foss, '09, was in the chorus. 

The "Technique," the college an- 
nual, was edited by Bro. Donnewald, 
'07. Bro. Barnes, '08, and Bro. 
Vonnegut, '08, were elected to the 
new "Technique" Board. Bro. 
Brooks, '08, this year's manager of 
"The Tech" has been elected busi- 
ness manager of the '08 Technique." 
Bro. Mitchell, '09, is on the News 
Staff of "The Tech." 

On the fifth of May a banquet 
was given to our Senior delegation 
at Hotel Westminster and a general 
good time was indulged in, the Sen- 
iors making their farewell addresses. 

Bro. Bridgman, '08, and Bro. Sher- 
man, '09, are both pitching on their 
respective class baseball teams and 
are expected to twirl rings about our 
neighbors, Chi Phi, in our annual 
game.

of the appointment of a Commis-

American Universities and holding 
almost daily sessions for three 
months have brought in their report 
They make three radical suggestions: 
1. That a Board of Governors be cre- 
ated responsible for the whole man- 
agement of the University; 2. That 
the president be given enlarged ex- 
ecutive and advisory powers; 3, 
That a Feculty Committee of Arts-

be created to give the teaching body 
more direct control of the curriculum 
and educational policy of the Uni- 
Tersity. 

The CouTOcation Hall begun last 
fall is rapidly nearing completion and 
it is hoped that it will be finished for 
the Commencement exercises in June. 

Our Hockey team, although strong- 
er than for many years, was so ham- 
pered through lack of practice that 
they were unable to gain the cham- 
pionship of the Intercollegiate league. 
It was clearly shown, however, that 
their plasring was much faster than 
that of the Provincial league. Three 
brothers played on the Toronto team 
as stated before. Bro. Herb CHarke, 
'08, has lately been elected captain 
for the coming year. Lacrosse and 
baseball, particularly the former, 
are the only games played here now. 
Last year the Lacrosse team won the 
University championship of America 
and hopes to again this year. We 
liave two men on the team, P. I/. 
Fraser, '08, and B. V. Graham, '07, 
captain. Tlie cricket team will soon 
be practicing and Bros. Mclutyre, '05, 
TyUer, '06, and Reade, '05, will 
probably make the team. Bro. Weir, 
'08, has been appointed manager for 
the Intermediate football team for 
next fall. Bro. Loudon, '05, who 
coached the Argonaut "eight" last 
summer at Baltimore when they took 
a substantial number of seconds otf 
the world's record, will again coach 
the crew at Henley this summer. 

Bro MacPherson, '07, has for the 
second time been returned at the 
bead of the poll as a member of the 
athletic directorate, the body which 
lias absolute control of athletics. 

Bver)rthing around the University 
\s dead owing to the presence or 
proximity of the annual examina- 
tions. Those in the School of Prac- 
tical Science have already begun, 
while those in the Arts and Medicine 
start on the first of May. The last 
activities ceased with elections of offi- 
cers for the various Faculty socie- 
ties about the middle of March. The 
most interesting of these are the Lit- 
erary and Scientific Society elections 
in University college, which are ani- 
mated by the frenzied struggles of 



two strong parties. This year the 
"Old Set" Party went down after 
holding office for a number of years, 
before the assault of the "Unionists." 
Unlike most of the fraternities here 
our active members are almost equal- 
ly divided in their party allegiance. 
Other elections have given a number 
of positions to Delta Upsilon. Bro. 
Coults, '07, is editor of "Varsity" 
the University journal for next year. 
Bro. Scully, '06, is chairman of the 
committee having the commencement 
program in hand. Bro. Kylie, '01, 
is President of the University of Tor- 
onto Union and is pushing energetic- 
ally a scheme for securing a build- 
ing as clubhouse, once owned by the 
"Toronto Athletic Club," but now 
occupied by the Technical School. If 
successful Toronto will have one of 
the finest clubhouses on the conti- 
nent. Both our Juniors have been 
elected to the "Thirteen" Club, a so- 
cial club of the most prominent Sen- 
iors. Bro. Anderson, '07, is secre- 
tary-treasurer for the club. All of 
the Fraternity who applied have been 
elected to membership in the Histor- 
ical Club, an exclusive upperclass so- 
ciety. 

By the end of May or the middle of 
June the brothers will be practically 
all out of the city and most of them 
will be working in one way or an- 
other; many of them will be in the 
bush, fire ranging or surveying. 

We have lately enjoyed the visits 
of Bro. Keap of Harvard and Bro. 
Davidson of McGill.

Active Membership, 24. 

AT the present writing we have 
just returned from the spring 
recess, to enter upon the final term 
of the college year. The chapter now 
numbers twenty-four active members, 
and we have also pledged C. T. Rob- 
inson, '09, who will be initiated in 
the near future. We lose by gradua- 
tion this spring six brothers, all of 
whom are prominent in college life. 



The most important event which 
has occurred recently at Tufts is the 
election of Dr. Frederick W. Hamil- 
ton, of the class of 1880, to the 
presidency of the college. Dr. Ham- 
ilton was chosen acting president 
shortly after the death of President 
Capen a year ago. He has been a 
member of the Board of Trustees 
since 1896, and has been for several 
years chairman of the executive com- 
mittee of that body. He is therefore 
familiar with conditions at the Col- 
lege, financial and otherwise. He is 
a member of Theta Delta Chi, and of 
Phi Beta Kappa. For some years 
after his graduation he was engaged 
in railroad work, and then entered 
the ministry. We look forward to 
a sound and progressive policy under 
his administration. 

The plan of Commons Dining 
which was put in operation this year 
has not proved successful and has 
been abandoned. Two managers 
have failed to give satisfaction, and 
the Trustees have removed the re- 
striction placed on the fraternity 
dining rooms, but we have joined 
for the remainder of the year a co- 
operative club which uses the Com- 
mons Building. Next year we shall 
eat in our house again. 

Work on the Carnegie Library is 
progressing rapidly and It promises to 
be an imposing and convenient struc* 
ture. 

The musical clubs have just return- 
en from a two weeks' trip through 
Connecticut and New York. Bros. 
Dustin, '06, Masseck, '08, and Up- 
ham, '08, were the Delta Upsllon 
men who made the trip. 

In athletics many of our men are 
active. Bro. Lamb, '06, is at second 
base on the Varsity nine for his 
fourth season. Bro. Lewis, '07, is on 
the second nine, and Bros. Boyd, '08, 
and Nason, '09, are candidates for 
their respective class teams. Brother- 
to-be Robinson is manager of the 
Freshman team. Bro. Hanscom, '08, 
is tennis champion of the College, 
and will be a member of the team 
which competes in the Intercollegiate 
tournament at Longwood and In dual 
meets with other colleges. Bro.

THE baseball and track teams and 
the fast approaching com- 
mencement are the topics which oc- 
cupy the most attention in college at 
present. With our new diamond 
completed the outlook for a winning 
baseball team is bright and Union 
should win the majority of the games 
on her schedule. Enthusiastic meet- 
ings are held every Friday night on 
the campus, and the songs and yells 
arouse a lot of good college spirit. 

The track men are getting in good 
work in preparation for the coming 
meets. Bro. Reed, '06, and Bro. 
Closson are both reliable point win- 
ners, the former in the long distance 
runs, the latter in the weights. Bro. 
Wey ranch, '08, bids fair to win his 
"U" this spring on the track team, 
while Bros. Striebert, Roosa and Mc- 
Cormick, '09, are promising candi- 
dates for that honor. 

The Seniors in the house are all 
busy with their thesis work and com- 



mencement plans. We lose the large 
delegation of seven men, which will 
make quite a gap to be filled. 

Bo. Reed, '06, is In line for a Phi

Charles C. Nott was one of the 
Judges of the Court of Claims from 
the creation of the court in 1865 un- 
til his resignation. From November 
23, 1896, he had been chief Justice. 
A remarkable testimonial dinner was 
given in his honor at the end of his 
fortieth year of service on the bench, 
in February, 1905, by lawyers prac- 
ticing before the court. In one of 
the speeches made on that occasion 
it was said that Judge Nott was one 
of two living Judges who were ap- 
pointed by President Lincoln.

THE mother chapter of Delta U 
appears in "new clothes" this 
spring. Our chapter house, the old- 
est house in Willlamstown, has Just 
been repainted and the grounds and 
tennis court have been put in fine 
shape for the spring term and House 
Party week. Indoors, new rugs, new 
curtains and fresh paint vastly im- 
prove the rooms downstairs. We are 
now better fitted to receive and enter- 
tain our brothers than ever before. 
Willlamstown is at its best in the ear- 
ly summer, the undergraduates are 
anxious to meet fraternity brothers — 
both old and young — and rain or 
shine, early or late the Delta U 
latchstring is always outside. Come 
and see us! 

The work of constructing our new 
dormitory, Berkshire hall, is now 
well under way and rooms have been 



assigned for occupancy in the fall. 
Lasell Gymnasium, vastly improved 
by the installation of new shower 
baths and a good sized swimming 
pool, is now strictly up-to-date.

of the ground they were in prime 
condtion to start the season. The 
boys are playing a sure game In the 
field, but are weak at the bat, as the 
season opens. The team has lost 
two seasoned pitchers by graduation, 
but Bro. Williams, '09, is a leading 
candidate for the box among the new 
material. 

Bro. Pease, '07, has been elected 
manager of the varsity basketball 
team. 

Bros. Conover, '07, Johnson, '08,

THE work on our new house has 
been going on for some weeks 
now and we are all Intensely inter- 
ested in it. The location is an ideal 
one, within three blocks of the Uni- 
versity and with Lake Mendota for 
our frat yard. The house is to be a 
red brick building, 59 by 38 feet, and 
will accommodate twenty-two people. 
We hope to give a more detailed de- 
scription in the next issue of the 
'Quarterly. The alumni are also tak- 
ing a great interest in the house and 
Bro. Joe Davles has offered us a 



billiard table. Bros. Judge E. R. 
Stevens and Ralph Jackman are de- 
voting much of their time to the con- 
struction of the house and they tell 
us it will be as fine as we could want. 

Just before the opening of this 
semester all Madison was gay with 
the annual Junior Promenade. We 
held a house party which we were all 
proud of and following the program 
prepared for us by Bro. Baltz we had 
a time which we will never forget. 
That the girls enjoyed themselves 
was shown by a beautiful silver punch 
bowl and ladle which arrived some 
days later, engraved, "From the 
Chaperone and Prom Girls." 

Bro. Volkman was chairman of the

an informal recepUon for him here 
at the house one evening during his 
visit, at which President Van Hlse 
and most of our town alumni were 
present. 

The baseball season has Just 
opened and we are out with hopes

^LEBURY CONVENTION PROGRAM. 

HEADQUARTERS: ADDISON HOUSE, MIDDLEBURY, VT. 

A LL visitors will be met at the trains and conducted at once to the 
-^*^ Addison House, where the rooming committee will be stationed and 
rooms in the hotel and nearby places will be assigned. Meals will be taken 
at the Sargent, Logan and Addison Houses, and the ticket system will be 
used. All business and social meetings are held near these hotels and 
within three minutes' walk of the depot. Rates are low at Middlebury 
and large delegations are expected. Chapters are requested to send the 
names of tlieir delegates at least a week in advance to the secretary of the 
convention, Arthur E. Bestor, 571 1 Kimbark Ave., Chicago, 111. 

Delegates to the convention should reach Middlebury not later than 
Thursday, October 25th, in time to present their credentials at the first 
business session at ten A. M., but come the night before for the smoker 
if you can. The convention, however, assumes but 48 hours' hotel ex- 
penses for each delegate. 

RAILROAD RATES. 

Arrangements have been made with most of the railroads for the 
usual convention rates of a fare and a third for the round trip. Every 
delegate and visitor traveling under this plan will pay full fare to Mid- 
dlebury and should ask the ticket agent for a certificate, which will 
entitle him to a return ticket at one-third fare. Do not forget to ask for 
a certificate, as without this the reduced fare cannot be obtained, and the 
difference will not be included in the equalization of rates, except in the 
case of delegates traveling over roads not in the above arrangements. 
Make inquiries of your ticket agent well in advance, and if certificates are 
not issued write to S. S. Hall, Box 194, New York city, for information 
as to the nearest point at which they can be obtained. 

Middlebury is situated on the Rutland Railroad, about four hours 
from Montreal, seven and one-half from Boston, four from Troy and 
eleven from New York. Through trains, with Pullmans, run from all 
these points over the Rutland, stopping at Middlebury. As Middlebury 
is a summer tourist center its hotels are better and larger than is usual 
in a small town.

*15ack: to the VOODS*'* 

On Saturday, October 27, those brothers who can remain over will 
be taken to Lake Dunmore by team and a cold limch will be served on 
the rocks at the "Cascades," a beautiful spot where a mountain stream 
dashes down to the lake. Then those brothers who are strenuously 
inclined may walk over the mountains to Silver Lake, a little sheet of 
water nestled in the hills, and thence to Bread Loaf Inn, a hard nine 
miles' walk. Those who like their fun in milder doses will ride through 
the woods to the same point, where a game dinner will be served, and 
then there will come a wild twelve-mile ride down into the valley for the 
midnight trains. This trip will take the brothers into the heart of the 
Green Mountains, beside rushing brooks and through the forest, and it 
is thought that those who have never visited this region will find it a 
novel and enjoyable feature. The country is full of interest to the 
botanist and geologist, and the fishing is excellent; small game abound, 
and deer are seen, but the crowd will probably be too noisy to accomplish 
much with shy game. 

THE BANQUET SPEAKERS. 

The price of the banquet, which will be the convention climax, has 
been set low so that every visitor can attend. Things are cheap in Ver- 
mont, and the price does not indicate poor service. The toastmaster will 
be Rev. James L. Barton, Middlebury, '81, of Boston, Mass., and speakers 
who have already agreed to come are Hon. Fletcher D. Proctor, Amherst, 
'82; Hon. Frank C. Partridge, Amherst, '82, ex-minister to Venezuela 
and President of the Vermont Delta Upsilon Qub ; U. S. Senator Proctor ;

MIDDLEBURY SEMI-CENTENNIAU 

The Middlebury Chapter entertains in honor of her fiftieth year. 
Founded in 1856, the chapter looks back upon half a century of life in 
the fraternity and invites all brothers in Delta Upsilon to come and 
celebrate with her the achievements of fifty years and clasp hands in 
fraternal good wishes for the years to be. On Thursday evening, Octo- 
ber 25, short exercises will be held in celebration of the chapter's life and 
the orator of the evening will be Rev. Cortland R. Myers, Rochester, '87, 
of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Hon E. B. Sherman, honorary President 
of the fraternity and a charter member of the Middlebury Chapter, will 
preside, and it is expected that many of the founders of the chapter will 
be present. A poem will be read by Prof. Prentiss C. Hoyt, Middlebury, 
'89, professor of English literature at Qark University. The exercises 
will be followed by a reception-ball, Doring's Military Band of Troy 
furnishing the music. 

It is expected that music will be quite a feature at this convention; 
the new song-book will be out then, and strong-lunged choristers will be 
prepared to lead off at every opening. Literature with detailed informa- 
tion will be mailed to each chapter about October i ; the Middlebury 
Chapter wants a big attendance, and members of the committee will be 
glad to correspond with any of the brothers regarding rates or other 
matters of interest.

SOME NEW DELTA UPSILON HOMES. 

THE NEV HO»!E OF THE CALIFORNIA CHAPTEIL 

By Ralph L. Langworthy. California, '05. 

HP HE California Chapter is rejoicing in the fact that it is now housed 
^ in its own home. Four years of steadily directed effort on the part 
of both alumni and undergradutes have at last successfully culminated 
in the possession of a splendid house. And the most satisfactory feature 
of the four years' effort is that the money for the house has been raised 
almost without exception from the members of the California Chapter. 

As early as the autumn of 1899, although the Chapter had then been 
in existence only a little over three years, a plan was adopted to create a 
fund for the acquirement of a chapter home. This plan was, in brief, that 
as each member left college he pledged himself to pay fifty dollars towards 
the fulfillment of this object, this sum to be paid within twenty years 
from the date of the pledge. In addition to the alumni subscriptions thus 
obtained the active chapter pledged itself to contribute a certain sum 
annually. In this way a start was made, but in the winter of 1902, on 
account of the rapidly increasing real estate values in Berkeley, and the 
decreasing number of desirable lots, it was realized that more active 
measures must be taken. 

The result was the formation of the Delta Upsilon House Association^ 
of which the original directors were Roland L. Oliver, '00 ; Hart H. North, 
'95 ; Ralph C. Daniels, '99 ; F. Herbert Dam, '96, and Norman F. Titus, 
04. Too much credit cannot be g^ven to the members of this original 
Board of Directors for the amount of time-taking, exacting work which 
they undertook and performed. And appreciation is due also to the pro- 
visional committee w^hich preceded them. 

On September 26, 1902, the Delta Upsilon House Association was 
incorporated under the laws of the State of California. The capital stock 
was authorized to consist of 1,000 shares of $50.00 each. An excellent lot 
at the corner of Channing Way and Bowditch street was purchased for 
$7,000.00, Brother Ralph C. Daniels loaning $700 to make up the required 
amount with the $6,300 the association had already on hand. 

The financial scheme by means of which the house has become a 
reality is very simple. It consists of stock, bonds and loans. The idea 
has always been foremost that the association must be independent and 
self-supporting; in other words, it was not designed to be a charitable 
institution. Every dollar that has been contributed towards the acquire- 
ment of the chapter house the association expects some day to be able to 
return with interest. To this end, in order to lessen the original indebted- 
ness, stock was sold, this comprising by far the larger portion of money 



SOME NEW DELTA UPSILON HOMES 261 

subscribed. When the individual contributor required greater security 
than that represented by stock, bonds bearing 3 or 4 per cent interest were 
issued. The interest on these bonds was cumulative for the first five 
years, thus giving the association the opportunity to reduce quickly what- 
ever mortgaged indebtedness it was found necessary to incur. In several 
cases outright g^fts were made, and from several alumni of other chap- 
ters unexpected aid has been received. As a result of these various 
methods of obtaining funds the association is in a position to rapidly 
decrease the mortgage loan, which comprised the final addition to the 
funds. 

With tlie rental which the active chapter pays for the house, and with 
the additional stock and bonds which individual members will acquire from 
time to time, the future of the association will take care of itself. The 
present Board of Directors, the board which built the house, consists of 
Roland L. Oliver, '00 ; A. C. Wyckoflf, '97 ; E. R. Hallett, '05 ; R. L. Lang- 
worthy, 05, and J. B. Landfield, Cornell, '04. 

The construction of the house was begun in April and completed in 
November, 1905. On February 2d, 1906, a formal house-warming was 
tendered the college public by the active chapter, and on March 3d the 
alumni did their share in a successful dedication. 

The house occupies a corner lot 100 by 125 feet, and is within five 
minutes' walk of the University buildings. The eflFect of the house from 
the outside is one of massive simplicity. The design follows the archi- 
tecture of the Italian renaissance, with the addition of a few mission 
details. The exterior is finished in stucco, and is painted a soft yellowish 
gray. The roof is tile, red. 

The lines are severe and strong, and the proportions of the building, 
which are very carefully worked out, add a charm to the whole effect. 

The interior is well adapted to the social and home features of a fra- 
ternity house. The main floor consists of the hall, lounging, dining and 
chapter rooms. These rooms are panelled and beamed with a mission 
eflFect in fumed oak, and are so arranged that they can be thrown into one 
long hall whose dimensions are approximately 30x60 feet. 

The second and third floors contain apartments for twenty men, and 
are provided with the comforts and conveniences of a modern home. The 
tinting and staining and the rugs, curtains and hangings harmonize 
throughout the house. For this charming eflFect Brother Roland L. Oliver 
is responsible. 

The house, lot and furnishings represent an investment of about 
$26,000. A number of highly prized individual gifts have been made by 
individuals and classes. Brother John A. Brewer, '03, presented the chap- 
ter with a splendid set of furniture for the dining room. The Delta U. 
mothers supplied the table linen, silverware and china service, and the 



262 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

Delta U. sisters contributed cushions. Qasses and relatives have also been 
very generous with gifts. It is the hope of the members of the chapter 
that individuals and outgoing classes will continue to endeavor by further 
donations to make the chapter house a real home in every sense. The 
chapter desires its new house to be a home of Delta U's, a place in which 
they will rejoice to live, to return to in after years, and to welcome their 
brothers from other chapters. 

THE BOVDCMN CHAPTER HOUSE. 

By Samuel B. Furbish, Amherst, '98. 

'TpHE Bowdoin Chapter of Delta Upsilon was forced to own a chapter 
•*■ house by conditions arising from the fact that six of the other fra- 
ternities had homes of their own. One of the first questions asked when 
rushing a man would be, "Where is your chapter house?" and our lack 
resulted in the loss of many men who were otherwise very favorably im- 
pressed with the chapter . In the fall of 1903 a corporation was planned, 
and seven alumni became the original charter members, incorporating 
under the laws of Maine in October, 1903, with $10,000 of capital stock, 
in shares of $25 each. The sum of $1,600 was promptly subscribed and a 
lot containing nearly two acres was purchased on the main street of the 
town, separated from the college campus by the lot of the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon fraternity and within sight of three others of the college societies. 

While discussing plans as to the advisability of building a new house 
at once, it happened that one of the rich men of the town died and his 
estate went on the market. As we found that his residence could be easily 
converted into a chapter house at comparatively small expense, it was 
purchased and moved to our lot during the summer. In the fall, when 
college opened. Delta Upsilon had a house that was second to none at 
Bowdoin. The picture does not do it justice, for in its new location the 
house is situated about one hundred feet back from the street, with a 
broad lawn running up to the sweeping driveway that swings in from both 
sides of the lot. As }Ou look at the picture the fifty-foot ell and fifty-six- 
foot addition are not visible. As you go up the granite steps to the front 
door and enter you are confronted by a hallway fifteen feet in width, five 
feet of which is occupied by a flight of black walnut stairs that run up 
through the three stories. 

The ground floor to the right is occupied by a large general room 
with a large fireplace. The dining room is directly at the rear of this, and 
has a seating capacity of forty men. Both of these rooms have patterned 
hardwood floors. The ceilings are hand decorated and in keeping with the 
rest of the rooms. On the other side of the hall are a parlor and two 
studies. On the second floor are three studies that are counterparts of

the two studies and parlor below . The two rooms directly over the general 
room and dining room are used for studies, and are occupied by three 
men each. The third floor is divided in the same manner as the second 
and the rooms, five in all, are used as sleeping rooms. This floor has a 
toilet room at the end of the hall. The kitchen, laundry, store rooms and 
matron's rooms occupy the ground floor of the ell. Over these rooms 
are four rooms, two chambers, a study and a bath room. 

The addition at the rear of the ell is perhaps one of the prizes of the 
house, for the ground floor is a sheathed dance hall fifty-six feet by thirty- 
two. This is also used for banquets and receptions. Above this hall are 
seven rooms and a bath for the help. 

The expense of running this house is yet to be decided by experience, 
but it seems probable that the income from the rent of the rooms to the 
chapter as a chapter house and to the boys as suites will meet all require- 
ments. The dining room expenses are met by charging $4 per week for 
board. 

Summing it all up, we think that the house we have, heated through- 
out by steam, lighted with electricity, and with complete plumbing and 
costing about $12,000, is about the best chapter house at Bowdoin. 

THE CHAPTER HOUSE AT BROWN. 

By George Hurley, Brown, '07. 

/^UR chapter house is a large-roomed, large-planned building, with a 
^^ capacious suite on the first floor used as general fraternity rooms* 
The largest room, used as a reception hall on holidays and as an assembly 
room on work days, is finished in mahogany and attractively furnished 
with heavy leather and mahogany chairs. The smoking room, the real 
living room of the chapter, done in g^een oak paneling with red furnish- 
ings, is a warm, cosy and cheery room. The library is furnished in blue^ 
and the dining room furnished in ebonized wood. 

There are eighteen rooms in the house. On the upper floors are 
nine bedrooms and five bathrooms. The house is comfortably and con- 
veniently furnished, and recently the alumni, under the direction of Broth- 
ers Pope and Wood, have given the house several fine original paintings. 

THE UNION CHAPTER HOUSE. 

By Lewis Stewart Parsons, '07. 

\X7HEN the Union Oiapter of Delta Upsilon secured a section of South 
^ ^ College and fitted it up as a very cosy lodge, they little thought 
that within three years they would be living in one of the finest houses 
in Schenectady and even in the fraternity, but such is the case. 

The house we have secured was erected in 1896. It was built for 



264 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

* 

a private residence by one of the leading business men in Schenectady and 
occupied by him for a year. It was then sold to St. John's parish, to be 
used as a convent school. This plan did not go through, and the house, 
practically new, was finally leased for a term of years by the Union Chapter 
last spring, and on June first we quietly took possession, much to the 
surprise of our rivals on the hill. 

The house is built of brick and brownstone, and is ideally equipped 
for fraternity use. There are five rooms and a large reception haU on 
the ground, finished in the natural wood, with inlaid floors, and 
with the exception of the dining room, which is wainscoted, are all taste- 
fully papered. There are handsome tiled fireplaces in the dining room, 
reception room and parlor, and the ceilings in each room are attractively 
frescoed. 

The second floor contains six studv rooms, in three of which are 
open fireplaces, and all have hot and cold water and large closets. 

The attic contains sleeping quarters for twenty men and room for 
the billiard table. There are baths on each floor. The cellar contains the 
Iaundr>', furnace room, and two trunk rooms. 

The plate glass windows are unusually large and are equipped with 
Venetian blinds. A veranda fifteen feet wide, extending forty feet across 
the front, and a conservatory, which has been converted into a smoking 
room, complete a home which we hope to call our own inside of a year. 
The original cost of the house was $25,000. 

IMPROVEMENTS AT SYRACUSE. 

T^HE Syracuse Chapter has added a large front porch to the chaptei 
-*■ house, making it much more comfortable, and changing its appear- 
ance considerably. At the same time the house was repainted, the third 
floor was remodeled and plastered, a hardwood floor laid and a new dormi- 
tory put in. The main hall has a new hardwood floor, and most of the 
rooms were repapered and painted. The dormitory plan, for which the 
third floor has been arranged, is proving a great success. 



DELTA UPSILON IN CHICAGO- 

THROUGH the assistance of Brother Robert Catherwood, North- 
western, '96, we are able to make the Delta U.'s outside of Chicago 
acquainted with some of our Chicago brothers. 

We are all familiar with Judge Elijah B. Sherman, Middlebury, '60, 
-master in chancery for the Federal courts, and one of the old settlers of 
Chicago. He has been a prominent figure in Delta Upsilon as well as in 
the Western metropolis. 

Charles Gates Dawes, Marietta, '84, president of the Central Trust & 
Savings Bank, president of one of the principal gas companies of Chicago, 
and former U. S. Comptroller of the Currency, is another who is already 
well known to the fraternity. 

But there are others who are well known in Chicago in business, pro- 
fessional or educational circles who should be better known to our readers. 

William H. French, Cornell, '73, whose genial manner endeared him 
to all who were at the Chicago convention, is now serving his third term 
as president of the Chicago Delta Upsilon Club. Brother French was a 
student in Leipsic University in 1872 and 1873. On his return he became 
assistant general manager of the Associated Press in New York. He is 
now secretary and director of the type foundry firm of Bamhart Brothers 
& Spindler, 183 Monroe street, Chicago. 

Professor Ira Wilder Allen, Hamilton, '50, has led a busy life. He 
was a teacher in the public schools of New York State from 1843 ^^ 1848. 
In 1850 he redved the degree of A. B. from Hamilton College, and for 
two years was principal of Manlius Academy. Two years more were 
spent as a student at Harvard University and the Universities of Gottingen 
and Berlin. From 1854 to i860 he was a professor in Antioch College, 
which gave him the degree of A. M. in 1853. After a year as superintendent 
of schools, Sidney, Ohio, he became President of Union Christian College. 
In 1863 he received the LL. B. degree from Albany Law School. For 
five years he was principal and proprietor of Lafayette Collegiate Institute, 
and for the next five years principal and proprietor of Lake Forest 
Academy. In 1872 Union Christian College gave him the degree of LL. D. 
From 1874 to 1892 he was principal and proprietor of Allen Academy, 
Chicago. Since then he has been occupied in the management of his prop- 
erty in and near Chicago, with frequent intervals of travel in Europe. 
Professor Allen is the father of three Delta U.'s: Ira W. Allen, Jr., 
Williams^ 84, A. B. ; '87, A.M. ; B. D., McCormick Seminary, '94, and now 
living at Pasadena, Cal. ; Hamilton Ford Allen, Williams, '88 A. B. ; Chi- 
cago, 05, Ph. D., and now a professor in Princeton University ; and Phiiip 



266 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

Schuyler Allen, Williams, '91, A B.; Chicago, '97, Ph. D., and now a 
professor in the University of Chicago. 

Ossian C. Simonds, Michigan, '73, is a prominent landscape gardener 
of Chicago. Immediately after graduation, he entered the c^ce of W. L. 
B. Jenney, architect, in Chicago, and three years later formed a partner- 
ship with William Holabird, the firm being Hobibird & Simonds. From 
this firm he afterwards withdrew in order to devote his time to landscape 
gardening. His work, which includes private places, parks, cemeteries, 
sub-divisions, etc., has been carried on in more than twenty-six states and 
territories. 

Frederick Whitton, Wisconsin, '89, is another Delta U. who was 
prominent at the Chicago Convention. He is agency manager of the 
New York Life Insurance Co. Brother Whitton was principal of the 
Detroit School for Boys, 1890-98 ; of Michigan Military Academy, 1898- 
99, and of Blees Military Academy, 1899-1902. He then became solicitor 
for the New York Life Insurance Co., and the following year became 
agency manager and director. 

James Westfall Thompson, Rutgers, *g2, was a graduate student at 
the University of Chicago for the two years following his graduation from 
Rutgers. In 1895 Chicago gave him the degree of Ph. D. (magnum cum 
laude), and made him associate in history. In 1897 ^^ became instructor 
and since 1903 he has been assistant professor of European history. 
Brother Thompson has written "The Development of the French Mon- 
archy under Louis VI." and "The Decline of the Missi Domintci in 
Frankish Gaul." He is a frequent contributor to various periodicals. At 
the Chicago convention he was the convention poet. 

Charles Lincoln Keller, Lehigh, '93, first assistant engineer in charge 
of all the engineering forces of the Scherzer Rolling Lift Bridge Co. of 
Chicago, is busy with a number of important bridges, notably the eight- 
track railroad bridge over the Chicago drainage canal, a double-track rail- 
road bridge over the Chicago river with a span of 275 feet between bear- 
ings, and a number of important lift bridges in Russia, Ireland, South 
America and other foreigpi countries. He is director and secretary of the 
National Regulator Co., Chicago, and a member of the American So- 
ciety of Civil Engineers and of the Western Society of Engineers, as well 
as of various clubs. He is on the managing boards of several local asso- 
ciations and settlements, and has lectured before a number of engineering 
societies and university technical schools on the subject of modem bridge 
construction. 

George Ellsworth Hooker, Amherst, '83, secretary of the City Qub 
and one of the prominent municipal ownership men of Chicago, is a Ver- 
mont man by birth and education. Qass day orator, prize debater and

Phi Beta Kappa ; graduate of Columbia Law School and of Yale Divinity 
school ; admitted to the bar and practicing law in New York, and serving 
as a missionary and ordained to the ministry in Washington; traveling 
abroad and working in Andover House, Boston ; in these varied ways he 
was splendidly prepared for his present work in Hull house, Chicago, and 
on the editorial staflF of the Chicago Tribune — again a contrast. He is 
evidently a practical idealist. 

Francis E. BroomcU, Swarthmore, '93, entered the employ of C. J- 
Hambleton & Co., real estate, soon after graduation, as manager of their 
branch office. He continued there until 1900, when, on the death of both 
members of the firm, he became manager of the Hambleton Estate and 
engaged in independent business of his own . In 1904 he entered into part- 
nership with his brother, Chester C. Broomell, under firm name of 
Broomell Brothers, real estate and loans. He is a member of the Chicago 
Real Estate Board, and served as appraiser of real estate for the West 
Park Board of Commissioners. Brother Broomell is much mterested in the 
movement for more liberal religious thought, and is secretary of the Inde- 
pendent Religious Society of Chicago. 

Robert K. S. Catherwood, Northwestern, '96, who procured the 
material for this article, failed to include either his picture or his "obit- 
uary." The former we had and the latter is given by the Decennial. His 
activity in chapter, club and general fraternity matters is strongly in evi- 
dence. He was admitted to the bar in 1899, since when he has practiced 
law, being at present a member of the firm of Parkinson & Catherwood^ 
and he was one of the prime movers of the 1904 convention, held at 
Chicago, having been chairman of the committee. 

Shelby M. Singleton, Northwestern, '91, as secretary and attorney 
for tlie Citizens' Association of Chicago, is much in the public eye, and has 
gained a national reputation for courage and efficiency in his work. He 
was valedictorian of his class in the law school from which he was grad- 
uated in 1892, being admitted to the bar the same year. He practiced law 
until 1894, when he took charge of the Chicago Law Institute until 1896, 
when he entered the newspaper field. He held editorial positions on the 
Inter-Ocean, the Milwaukee Sentinel and the Record^Herald, until he took 
up his present work in 1903. He was first vice-president of the Qiicaga 
convention. 

Rev. William Pierson Merrill, Rutgers, '87, is from the East, having 
been born in Orange, N. J. First honor man at graduation, class day 
poet, valedictorian. Phi Beta Kappa, and winner of many prizes, he has 
proved a forceful, thoughtful preacher. For five years after graduation 
from Union Theological Seminary in 1890, he was pastor of Trinity 
Church, Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, and for the past few years has been 



268 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

pastor of the Sixth Presbyterian Church of Chicago. He was chaplain of 
the Chicago convention in 1904. 

Edgar Grant Sisson, Northwestern, '98, wielded the pen as recording 
secretary and corresponding secretary of his chapter and reported for the 
Chicago Chronicle. On graduation he became dramatic editor of tlie 
Chicago Tribune, of which paper he is now managing editor. 

James M. Gilchrist, Cornell, *oo, is general manager of the Federal 
Electric Co. He has been in business in Chicago since graduation. He 
was for two years secretarj' of the Chicago Delta Upsilon Qub and a 
member of the 1904 Convention Committee. 



THE CONVENTION OF DISTRICT IL 

The first annual District Convention of the Canadian and Central 
New York chapters was held at the Lodge of the Cornell Chapter on May 
4th and 5th, 1906. Ralph C. Rodgers, Cornell, '05, was president and 
A. W. Rowley, Syracuse, '07, secretary. The Cornell Chapter proved 
most hospitable and cordial hosts. 

The delegates met at tht lodge on Friday, May 4, for dinner, which 
was followed by a reception in the chapter hall. The convention was then 
called to order for organization. The next day at the first session papers 
were presented as follows : Colgate, "Definite Aims in Chapter Work ;' 
Cornell, "Upperclass Supervision;" Hamilton, "Benefits of General Con- 
vention; McGill, ''Vital Factors in Rushing;" Rochester, "Chapter Visita- 
tion ;" Syracuse, "Relations Between Fraternities ;" Union, "Chapter Tra- 
ditions." 

A general discussion, which followed each paper proved a valuable 
ieature. 

At the close of the session the delegates were shown the University 
buildings and grounds, followed by luncheon at the Lodge. In the after- 
noon the Colimibia-Comell baseball game was attended, Cornell being 
the victors. In the evening a typical chapter meeting was held by the 
Cornell chapter, and was largely attended by local alumni. A banquet at 
the Lodge brought the convention to a close. 



An account of the convention of District V in Evanston, 111., letter 
will be found at the end of this issue.

records that interest and activity in undergraduate life generally result 
in a continuation of interest and activity in the fraternity in after 
years.

Otto M. Eidlitz, Cornell, '8i, held the offices of chapter treasurer, 
corresponding secretary, vice-president and delegate to the '80 and '81 
conventions. He was president of the Delta Upsilon camping asso- 
ciations, president of the Delta Upsilon Oub of New York and a member 
of the executive council for four years. His college interest was continued 
as treasurer of the Cornell Qub of New York and as one of the committee 
of five for alumni hall. He was appointed by Governor Roosevelt to be 
tenement house commissioner in 1900. A member of the building firm 
of Marc Eidlitz & Son, of New York, he has been president of the Mason 
Builders' Association and secretar>' of the United Building Trades of 
New York. 

Charles E. Hughes, Brown, '81, is well known for his recent work in 
the insurance and gas investigations in New York City. He was class 
prophet and class orator, editor of the Brunonian, took the Carpenter and 
Dunn premiums and made Phi Beta Kappa. In the fraternity he was 
delegate to the '80 convention, toastmaster at the '86 and '01 conventions 
and president of the executive council '86-'87. He was prize fellow at the 
Columbia Law School, professor of law at Cornell University and special 
lecturer at Cornell and tfie New York Law School. 

Marcus C. Allen, Colgate, '81, had the convention habit. He was a 
delegate to the '81, '82, '83, '84 and '85 conventions, and has attended 
others. He was recording secretary of his chapter and later trustee. In 



270 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

college he played baseball. He has been vice-president of the Sandy Hill^ 
N. Y., board of education, and president of the sewer commission. He is 
a member of Allen Bros. Co., manufacturers, Sandy Hill, N. Y. 

Edward M. Bassett, Amherst, '84, was initiated by the Hamilton 
chapter. Besides being class president and holding college records in tlie 
hurdles and jumps at Hamilton he held a commencement appointment and 
was class day orator and Phi Beta Kappa at Amherst. In his chapter 
he was vice-president and delegate to the '82 and '83 conventions. He 
was one of the editors of tlie first volume of the Quarterly, which was 
published by the Amherst chapter, and associate editor of the '84 Quiw- 
quennial. Graduating from the G>lumbia Law School he practiced law 
in Buffalo and New York City, and was a member of Congress from 
Brooklyn. 

Frederick M. Crossett, New York, ^84, hardly needs to have his fra- 
ternity activities recounted. Recording secretary, treasurer, chapter trus- 
tee, delegate to 81, '82, '83 and '90 conventions, delegate from the New 
York Club and from the executive coimcil to five or six more, he has 
been in attendance upon twenty-five consecutive conventions, besides being

and always in active connection with his chapter. He was chairman of 
the committee to establish the Lafayette, Columbia, Lehigh, Tufts, 
DePauw and Pennsylvania chapters. In college he was class treasurer 
and held various athletic offices, playing baseball and lacrosse. His 
present business of publisher of several magazines seems to be subordinate 
to his fraternity interests.

New York City. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF DELTA UPSILON* 

By Rev. Edward P. Powell, Hamilton, '53. 

THE movement which crystalized ultimately into what is now known 
as the Delta Upsilon Fraternity, began at Williams College, in 
1834. In 1838 there was organized a similar society at Hamilton. Among 
Its members were Rev. Henry Kendall, Rev. Dr. Henry Nelson, and 
several others who afterward reached a national reputation. I do not 
know how long this society continued its existence, nor what was the 
history of its work. In 1837 there was another anti-secret society formed 
at Union ; and neither this one nor that at Williams went out of existence 
until 1847. In this year there was a strong movement of the same char- 
acter at Amherst, followed soon after by an organization in Hamilton. 

All these movements were in the nature of a protest against secret 
associations — ^which it was claimed had introduced the spirit of injustice 
into college elections, and were breaking up natural associations into 
clanship. The protest included opposition to secrecy, mainly because at 
that time the country was in its fever heat of antagonism to Free Masonry 
— a contest which had entered politics, and even the church. The main 
point, however, was that the Greek letter societies were giving preference 
to their own members in college elections, rather than to merit and scholar- 
ship. Several of the most notable educators of the land openly expressed 
their sympathy with the protesting movement of the students — among 
the rest President Hopkins of Williams, President Nott of Union, and 
President Hitchcock of Amherst 

The indignation was keener because some of the colleges, Hamilton 
included, had abolished college honors. In this college the only honors to 
be secured were those granted by the two literary societies, the Union 
and the Phoenix ; each of which annually elected a valedictorian. There 
were then four secret societies, the Sigma Phi, Alpha Delta Phi, Qii Psi 
and Psi Upsilon. Combinations of these societies were formed, generally 
two against two, to secure these valedictorianships. The Neutrals num- 
bered about one-third of the college, and generally voted as they pleased. 
But if they could be corraled for a single candidate, the four secret 
societies would sometimes combine against them. 

The literary societies met in rooms over the chapel, entering by the 
rear door, where the first floor was occupied by a laboratory ; the second 
by a Philosophical Chamber; and the third was devoted to the Literary 
Society Halls. The debates were of a high order, and the annual Anni- 
versaries were the literary as well as the social events of the college. 
The Union Library and Museum occupied the four middle rooms of 
Middle College, fourth floor; while the Phoenix occupied in like manner 
the fourth story middle rooms of North college. The contents of these 
libraries and museums constitute now no mean part of the present pos- 



272 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

sessions of the college. Each Greek letter society was accustomed to 
divide its members between the two, in such a way as most decisively to 
influence the annual elections. 

In 1847 there was a remarkably scholarly lot of Neutrals, some 
of them neutral by preference — perhaps nearly all of them. About a 
dozen of these were mustered at the room of A. M. Stowe on Commence- 
ment evening. This room was in the house of Mary Powell, now Dr. 
Stryker's. When this property was sold to the college, a part of it, 
containing this very room was wheeled about, and made to consti- 
tute a part of the mansion. This first meeting was held without lights, 
as it was surmised that the secret societies would cause disturbance. The 
movement was not acceptable to them, because it would solidify oppo- 
sition, and if such organization succeeded it would pretty surely rule the 
elections. It must not be overlooked that the society started with a very 
positive and aggressive spirit. It was intended to break up Greek letter 
societies, and put an end to them in colleges. During the first ten years 
the battle was sharply drawn on both sides, and a history of the skirmishes 
would be extremely interesting, often amusing, and sometimes pathetic 
It took more than ten years for us to discover that we had undertaken 
what could not be accomplished. 

The result of the first gathering, at Mr. Stowe's room, was that nine 
agreed to form a Hamilton College anti-secret fraternity. The name 
taken was the Social Fraternity. This name was changed, I think in 
1850, for the title Equitable Fraternity — a name originally used at Wes- 
leyan University. The names of the original organizers were C. L. 
Adams, A. G. Gould, R. G. Keyes, M. Waldo, D. E. Blaine, J. Campbell, 
Yates Hickey, E. Robbins, and A. M. Stowe. All these boasted that 
they had been repeatedly invited to join secret societies. To their names 
must be added the following, to make out the sixteen charter members : 
S. Sheldon, H. E. Johnson, Guy K. Qeveland, Giles B. Qeveland, R. G. 
Martin, H. G. Kingsbury, W. W. Warner. Among the earliest to be 
added to this list were G. W. Newcomb, A. D. Williams, C. H. Meigs, 
L. H. Potter, L. H. Jenkins and Seth E. Hills. The first president of the 
Hamilton Chapter was Milton Waldo, who is still alive and here on the 
platform beside me. 

From the very outset there was a moral tone to the movement The 
sixteen founders were men of stout character, and unflinching purpose- 
iveness. The constitution which they framed emphasized that member- 
ship was open only to those who practiced strict morality. No definition 
of morality was given however, and probably none could be g^ven. It 
was understood that no member could use intoxicating liquors, and there 
was a very strong opposition to the use of tobacco. For many years 
nearly every member refused to g^ve any countenance whatever to class 
rows, and bolting — ^which was then a popular custom. It was understood 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF DELTA UPSILON 273 

that the Social Fraternity intended to be an organization where parents 
could place their boys, with a certainty that they would be safe from the 
grosser temptations of college life. Nearly everyone of fair manhood 
could become a member. The three points insisted upon were moral 
cliaracter, intellectual eflfort, and social manliness. It was understood 
that while we respected scholarship and appreciated wealth, our aim and 
spirit was democratic and helpful. 

A mere lad at the time, but preparing to enter college in 1850, as 
a sophomore, I confess that the movement had a tremendous power over 
my thinking and purposing. I look back today with a conviction that 
the Delta Upsilon society, or Equitable Fraternity, did for me more than 
all other influences combined, to establish moral courage in the critical 
period of my life. It was to this sort of influence that the State of 
New York is just now indebted for Prosecuting Attorney Jerome, of 
New York, and Charles E. Hughes, who is doing equally good work in 
the insurance investigation. It also begat David Starr Jordan, the ideal 
college president ; and Garfield, the martyr for political rights. 

The cost of membership was a bagatelle, as compared with the cost 
of other societies. There was no initiation fee, nor other charges except 
a slight term tax, and a few bills which were paid to cover the expenses 
of those who were sick. We always cared for the poor boys who fell 
into the hands of the doctors. We generally paid about ten dollars a 
year for books, repairs and a few incidentals. A few paid a little more 
than that, while the poorer boys were excused from nearly ever3rthing. 

We almost at once took honorable rank and scholarship. Hamilton 
led his class in 1850. He was a giant in every way, in body and in mind. 
He became liberal in theology, before liberalism was popular, and died in 
his pulpit in Oakland, Cal., in the prime of his life, and before the world 
liad learned to appreciate him. Pratt led the class of 185 1 ; while in the 
dass of 1853 and that of 1854 we secured the salutatorians. There were 
very few prizes in those days, but we always secured our share — ^as we 
have ever since. Our first member of the faculty was Blaine, who was 
elected Tutor in 1852. His election provoked an outburst of abuse on 
the part of the secret societies. Having been selected by the Faculty, he 
should have been sustained by them. As they did not do this, we did. 
After a sharp struggle, covering two terms, we came oflF triumphant. 
During this episode our society resolved at one period to withdraw from 
the college in a body, unless the Faculty would take certain action in the 
defense of Tutor Blaine. They took it. Our first Professor was, I 
think, Wilcox, who succeeded Upson in the rhetorical chair. 

The first Convention was held in 1847, at the instigation of Williams, 
warmly seconded by Hamilton; and a Confederation was there formed. 
A second Convention, the first of the Confederation, was held in 1849, 
at Albany, when the Constitution was drafted. 



274 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

It is somewhat important that this question of early organization 
shall be definitely settled. I find in the records of the Hamilton chapter 
for October 27th, 1847, the following minute: "A letter from Williams 
stated that delegates from other anti-secret societies would meet at Troy, 
on the loth of November, for the purpose of getting up a union catalog, 
and to transact such other business as concerned the cause, and wished 
the Social Fraternity of Hamilton College to send a delegate. Where- 
upon a motion was made and carried that this Fraternity send a delegate 
to meet the others in Troy at the specified time." At a special meeting 
of the Social Fraternity, October 29th, I find on record that "M. Waldo 
was unanimously elected ; that he was instructed to use his best endeavors 
to adopt a common name and badge." 

In the records for April 3rd, 1848, is the following minute: "The 
Fraternity voted unanimously that the Confederation meet on the third 
day of May next, at the Delevan House, Albany. Voted that the Frater- 
nity send two delegates to said Convention ; whereupon Waldo and 
Converse were chosen." This seems to settle definitely the order in which 
the first Conventions were held ; at which the Confederation was agreed 
upon, the title chosen and the badge selected. 

In 1850 a third convention was held at Williamstown, and in 185 1 
a fourth at Union. In this way there gradually grew up a solidified 
moral and social force that was destined to influence the whole collegiate 
world. 

Chapters were formed in rapid succession at Adelbert, Wesleyan, 
Colby, Rochester, Bowdoin, Rutgers, Brown, Colgate, New York, Miami, 
Cornell and Trinity. Syracuse, Michigan, Northwestern and Harvard 
were added a little later. Hamilton was recognized from the outset as 
a good leader. Its influence was felt throughout the Confederation, and 
mainly because it stood for moral principles rather than social position. 
At the outset it was very warmly attached to the chapter in Vermont 
University, known as Delta Psi. Our fifth Convention, fourth of the 
Confederation, was held with that chapter, and its members at that time 
included a large nimiber who became famous — among the rest Governor 
Buckham and Rev. Dr. Goodale. The name Delta Psi was adopted by 
the Western Reserve, and it was proposed to adopt it at Hamilton. It 
would probably have become the name of the whole fraternity, had not 
this Vermont chapter unfortunately withdrawn from the Confederation 
in 1854. After trying one or two more titles, it was finally agreed in 
1864 to accept Delta Upsilon. 

Our Hamilton Equitable Society held its meetings for the first two 
years, most of the time, in the house of Mrs. Powell; and her house 
was for a long time known as the "Frat Hotel." Here they not only held 
their meetings, but had their board. The sympathy of their hostess 
for the society was very deep; but I think that it was slightly strained 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF DELTA UPSILON 275 

<Kxasionallyy when more than five or six visitors were brought in at the 
same time, to lunch, and more than two horses had to be stabled at 
^e same time — ^without charge to the visitors. However I remember 
quite as distinctly, and find it recorded in the minutes of the society, that 
literary exercises were occasionally abbreviated, in order to do justice 
to loaves of cake, pumpkin pies, and huge bowls of fresh maple sugar, 
which were found spread in the adjacent dining room by this patroness. 
She was well compensated by appreciative resolutions. Most of these 
Tcsolutions were worded by a dark-skinned youth, named Milton Waldo. 

From this house the society moved to rooms granted them by the 
Faculty, in South college. The whole upper story of this dormitory con- 
stituted four lodge rooms. Our Fraternity was in possession of North 
hall, fourth story middle, both front and rear. Across the Hall was the 
lodge of the Alpha Delta Phi. Our assembly rooms were reached through 
the rooms of janitors, who occupied the front — rent free, for their care of 
the lodge. This assembly room we fitted with sofas, that were especially 
constructed to join together, clear round the room. We had a library built 
into the wall, and this was kept fairly well supplied with new books. 
In those days, instead of over five thousand volumes per year, sent out 
by the publishers, I doubt if there were five hundred — pamphlets and 
all. We could keep up with the book tide at a very small cost. 

I regret to say that the records covering all this period are wretchedly 
meager. I do not find one word about our Anniversaries, which were 
decidedly the featue of the Fraternity. During Commencement Week, 
which occurred at that time late in July, the Fraternity Anniversary was 
a recognized event of the town. Our Hall, and the anterooms, were 
crowded with leading citizens, always including the families of two or 
three members of the Faculty. During most of this period we ntunbered 
about thirty members, and at one time reached nearly or quite forty. 
That the society had an exactly even tenor is not true. A few proved 
to be traitors to its principles; and one or two desired dismissal, and 
secured it. We had the sympathy of several of those who were inside 
rival societies, among the rest that of Edward Orton, afterward the 
eminent geologist, who wrote us a letter frankly wishing us success, and 
avowing his endorsement of our principles. 

The next move was to a room in the Osborne block, in the village, 
just east of the canal. This occurred while I was living in St. Louis and 
Chicago, so that I never attended but one meeting in that place. The 
change was necessitated by the fact that the college Jrustees found it 
necessary to refit South college, and use the whole of it as a dormitory. 
At the single meeting which I attended, I had the pleasure of suggesting 
Ae purchase of property and the building of a Lodge. This proposition 
was ably seconded by Prof. Burdick, your present presiding ofiicer. 
Lawyer Williams was employed to purchase, if possible, the Stone prop- 



276 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

erty, at the foot of the hill. Failing in this, the project lingered on until 
the purchase of the present property, and the building of the existing 
Lodge, into which the Society entered in April, 1888. My visits to 
Qinton were rare at this time, and I knew very little of the minutiae of 
this eflFort. I only know that it cost a deal of labor on the part of a 
few brave enthusiasts. The construction of lodges led to a g^eat social 
readjustment in this college as elsewhere. The system is still on trial, 
and has its strong opponents as well as its friends. 

In 1881 it was decided that the Fraternity should no longer be termed 
"anti-secret," but should be held to be "non-secret." This position had 
been advocated by some of the chapters, for several years. The feud 
spirit died out gracefully and naturally. The antagonism gradually 
slipped into a friendly, co-operation for good purposes, and for tlie 
welfare of the college, a spirit which is steadily improving year by year. 
Yet I suspect that quite a number of us old fellows still look back to those 
days of battle with a chuckle, and with a conviction that your modem 
era of fraternal good will does not furnish so good a stimulus to strong 
character and steady moral purposing. The larger part of existing 
chapters have never known anything about the old era, and its struggles, 
from their own experience. During the first ten years the battle was 
\ery keen and sharp. A strong friendship growing up between my 
classmate, Breese Stevens, a Sigma Phi, and myself, we were both hauled 
up and disciplined by our societies, on the score that we possibly antici- 
pated treason. There was very little friendship across tiie lines. We, 
the Frats, were decidedly too severe ; and our opponents were vindictive. 
The college catalogs were published, leaving out our Fraternity. We 
were compelled to publish separate editions for our private use. In 
those days the societies appeared as such in the reg^ar college catalog. 

The Delta Upsilon diange of frontage was a growth rather than 
a decision. It took place in connection with a very general revolution. 
Hamilton college accepted the inevitable, and, in place of exactly three 
recitations per day, of required studies, began to admit a modified elec- 
tive system. The studious atmosphere of older days changed for a 
sort of university bustle. Probably more work is done; probably ten 
times as much work is wasted. Cargoes of facts are unloaded into the 
modem student, which I am sure we should not have been able to digest 
and assimilate — it will be generous to suppose that he does. For us to 
come back here and expect to find exactly the same Delta Upsilon that 
we were acquainted with fifty years ago would be absurd. We do, 
however, expect that the society will never lose its democratic spirit Oi> 
aristocratic lines of exclusion we are very liable to bar out boys who will, 
by and by, become the glory of the College. It is always easier for thirty 
members to co-operate than for ten. One thing of which we were espe- 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF DELTA UPSILON 277 

cially proud in those days was that our expenses were so restricted that 
our fathers and mothers at home were not eating mush and milk while 
'we lived on roast beef. This problem of college expenses is one that we 
Delta U's must have a hand and a heart in solving. It is our hope and 
otir confident belief that the young men who inherit Delta Upsilon will 
understand that they inherit its obligations to honor, pure manhood, 
thorough scholarship, and self denial. Look well to your traditions, be 
faithful to your ideals. If you are, Delta Upsilon will remain as one 
of the noblest evolutions of the nineteenth century. Remember that the 
Fraternity does not consist of a few men who happen to be undergradu- 
ates ; but of that great body of alumni who are carrying out Delta Upsilon 
principles, in the social and political affairs of the country. Keep your- 
selves in tally with them. One of the most important duties of your 
Conventions is to make sure that each chapter has an annual reunion of 
its alumni not in Commencement week, but at such a period as will be 
undisturbed by other exercises. 

In 1897 we held our fiftieth Anniversary as a semi-centennial. At 
that time we had in the Faculty Melvin G. Dodge, Assistant Professor 
of Chemistry, and acting Librarian of the College; Wm. H. Squires, 
Professor of Psychology and Logic; Wm. P. Shepard, Professor of 
Romance Language and Literature — men of whom the Fraternity is justly 
proud. Of the charter members we had present Waldo, Hickey, H. E. 
Johnson, Keyes — the last three now deceased. We found other members 
of the Fraternity to be honored members of the Faculties of other colleges 
and universities ; men of note in the business world, the literar> world, 
and the political world. When your Centennial is reached in 1947, £ome 
more of us will be gone ; but if the spirit of gentle manhood, true char- 
acter and right scholarship control the Fraternity, Delta Upsilons on earth 
and Delta Upsilons in Heaven will constitute a loving and fraternal band 
of the sons of God.

EDITORIAL. 

npHE seventy-second convention of Delta Upsilon will be held with 
the Middlebury Chapter October 25th and 26th, at which time the 
chapter w^ill celebrate its semi-centennial. The Green Mountain bo)rs 
are planning a good time for the double event, and doubtless a large 
number of Middlebury alumni will attend. With the chapters of New 
England, Canada, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania all but a 
short journey, comparatively, from Middlebury, many undergraduates 
besides the delegates should take advantage of this opportunity to attend 
a convention. 

T^HE district convention idea has been proved a success for Delta 
Upsilon. Peports from the gatherings held in Cambridge, Ithaca and 
Chicago indicate that they are destined to become very valuable factors 
in inculcating the fraternity spirit. Only a combination of unusual circum- 
stances prevented a convention in District III., where it will be welcomed 
the coming year. The Executive Council may find it desirable to submit 
to the coming general convention some reg^ations regarding district 
conventions. But these rules should be few and wide of scope, for the 
district conventions should be practically autonomous, each deciding for 
itself what programme it shall pursue and what themes it shall discuss. 
One subject alone should be put under the ban by general consent if not 
by actual fraternity enactment. That is the matter of extension. Any 
attempt to discuss the fraternity's policy in a district convention or to 
declare in favor of this or that petitioning body should be frowned upon. 
We have never had sectionalism brought into consideration of charter 
petitions, and we cannot afford to have it introduced now. As a matter 
of fact, the district conventions have more vital topics to interest them. 
The wide field of right management of chapters is before them. In cultivat- 
ing this they will make themselves of most value to the fraternity. 

T T would seem from the experience of recent conventions that the com- 
mittee scheme needs revision. The list of committees usually adopted 
by conventions is one that has been in use several years. At least one com- 
mittee of the half-dozen or more has almost nothing to do, as a rule, 
while another has all the very important work. For the sake of dividing 
up the labor and having as many undergraduates as possible participate 
in the convention's real duties we need an entirely new list of committees. 



EDITORIAL 279 

Moreover, it is a question whether it is wise to wait for convention to 
assemble to select the committee members. There would seem to be no 
good reason why, after an up-to-date set of standing conmiittees has been 
made up, the acting president of the fraternity should not by lot assign 
chapters to committees and notify them in advance of convention. The 
delegates will gather, knowing exactly what duties are assigned them. 
It is probable that under this plan we should have a more general partici- 
pation by the undergraduates in the active convention work, and this is 
highly desirable. 

•TpHE long-desired fraternity song-book is on the press, and we have 
no hesitation in saying that the fraternity is going to be mightily 
pleased with the result of Brother Miller's labors. This is a very mild 
phrase for expressing what we think of the book, but it may do for an 
advance notice. He has tapped springs of verse and music that the 
fraternity has always had but never found before. We hope the Executive 
Council will never let them run dry. Why should not the fraternity have 
every five years or so a round-up of new songs and verses, to be made a 
supplement to the old favorites. 

« 

^^NE of the suggestions of the "Internal Improvement Committee" 
which reported to the Chicago Convention was for the formation 
of a "Pan-Hellenic Library." The plan having been authorized, the 
Librarian, William Oakley Raymond, 181 Qaremont Avenue, New York 
City, was directed to send a communication to a number of fraternities 
explaining the proposed collection of fraternity material. 

Official approval and agreement to co-operate having been received 
from most of the fraternities addressed, an open letter will now be sent 
out over the signatures of the librarians of these fraternities asking tliat 
all fraternities unite in forming a pan-Hellenic library. 

Briefly the plan is to preserve in the reference department of one 
public library a complete file of the fraternity magazine of each fraternity, 
together with a catalogue and such other fraternity material as may be 
decided upon. The New York Public Library, of which Dr. Billings is 
Librarian, will supply shelf room and will bind and catalogue the material 
so that there shall be no expense to the fraternities other than to furnish 
the material. It will be subject to reference only and cannot be removed 
from the library. 



28o THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

It is doubtful if any fraternity has (or needs) a complete file of 
every fraternity magazine, and yet such a file would be a valuable collec- 
tion for reference. It is hoped that every fraternity will authorize its 
librarian to aid in the development of this pan-Hellenic library. 

A suggestion for some enthusiastic Delta U. comes from Brother 
H. W. Hulbert, Middlebury, '79, of Bangor, Maine. He writes : "I wish 
someone who has the time would take the last edition of "Who's Who 
in America" and find out how many Delta U*s have a place there." Two 
undergraduates, working together, with a copy of "Who's Who" and 
the Decennial index, would find this an interesting and profitable study, 
and the Quarterly would be glad to publish the results of their research. 

We wish to emphasize to the chapters that there is only one design 
for the fraternity pin. We have learned that some jewellers are making 
pins that differ from the ofiicially adopted design in the shape of the 
letters forming the monogram. The chapters will do well to patronize 
only the jewellers whose advertisements appear in the Quarterly, in 
order to be certain of the correct design. There are enough to insure 
competitive prices. 

Two of our Rhodes scholars, Ralph H. Bevan, Brown, '04, and 
William C. Crittenden, California, 05, have achieved the distinction of 
securing their degree in two years instead of three years allotted for 
scholarship. 

Vermont has elected a Delta U. to the governor's chair. Brother 
Fletcher D. Proctor, Amherst, '82, son of U. S. Senator Redfield Proctor, 
one of our few honorary members. New York wants either Charles E. 
Hughes or District Attorney Jerome for governor. 

Some of the alumni correspondents of the chapters are doing yeo- 
man's service in supplying news, jogging the memory of the chapter 
editor and securing alumni subscriptions — ^and some are not. 

The twenty-fifth anniversary of the assassination of President Jame.^ 
A. Garfield, Williams, '54, occurred September 19th, which was marked 
by commemorative exercises in various parts of the country. The memory 
of a loyal brother is honored by Delta U's everjrwhere.

SOME DELTA UPSILON SONG WRITERS 



\G DELTA U* FROM THE TOP OF THE SONG WAGON. 

A PcaooallT Conductod Tour by ITflUamO. Mflkr, Peonsyl^aiiU, *Oif Editor. 

The Song Wagon's done; a spoke in the wheel from every Delta U. 
college ; slicked up ; greased ; given a final coat of paint ; and ready for its 
first jaunt among the chapters. The Wagon recently had a trial spin with 
the venerable Executive Q)uncil on board, and when they finally lit on 
prosaic ground again they were totally winded — played out in "whoopin' 
er up for Delta U." 

Taking the songs as they come, from Brother Sheldon's stately "Ode," 
which, by common consent, has been decreed first place, right through to 
the baby chapter's own college song, that modestly takes the rear seat, 
every song in the book is packed with the best brand of fraternal and 
collie sentiment. 

Bre'r Joel B. Slocum, Colby, '93, now a perennial Baptist preacher 
out in Ohio, shakes his clerical tog^ long enough to hum over "Dixie" and 
build a corking song, beginning 

"In Fresiunen days I beheld a maiden, 

And my heart got heavy laden, 

Look away ! Look away ! Look away ! Delta U ! 

To Delta U. I made surrender ; 

She's my love and I'll defend her — 

Look away ! Look away ! Look away ! Delta U !" 

And he's written several others just as good. By the way, Brother 
Slocum is the perpetrator of that unearthly "he dikaia" yell. He has gen- 
erously provided a free translation of the yell to go with every song book. 

Turning over a page, we find Phil B. Goetz, Harvard, '93, who, you 
remember, is slated to do the convention poet stunt this year. His "Hymn' 
has all the stateliness of rhythm for which his verse is justly getting 
famous. 

Certainly, we couldn't get far afield before we'd run across one of 
Henry D. Gray's fragrant fraternal posies. Henry D. came out of Colgate 
in '97 and nowadays is sowing the seeds of literary wisdom among Delta 
U's at Stanford. His songs have a tone of lofty exultation about them 
that make you glad you're a Delta U. I'll bet my Sunday hat Gray's 
a man in whose life Delta U. ideals have been a real factor, his lines bristle 
so with all that tp fraternally best. 

Right here let me tell you to get acquainted with Edmund Hardy, ol 
Toronto, '03. He carries a "Mus. Bac." about with him, but that needn't 
deter you. With him it means "Bom a Musician." The inspiring melody 
that he has set to the ringing words of his fellow-Torontonian, McNaim, 



282 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

'99, "Stand To-night at the Forge," make you want to roll up your 
sleeves and shout, •'God Save Ireland !" or any other of the United States^ 
Brother Hardy has joined hands across the sea with Ellis J. Thomas^ 
Williams, '88, but more recently London, England, and between them the 
"Rushing Song" and "Halls of Delta U." have been evolved into rattling^ 
songs that you won't get over singing. This Delta U. song-microbe will 
start an epidemic in about a month. 

With his other hand, Brother Thomas has written "Where YouTl 
Find a Delta U.," that is filled full, pressed down, shaken together, and 
then running over with fraternal whoop hurrah ! Brother Lewis M. Isaacs,. 
New York, '97, broke away from his law books long enough to immortal- 
ize these words in melody. When the song was first played over for 
the Executive Council, every blessed member, even to President Hall and 
Brother Fairbanks, hit up the chorus like a lot of Princeton Freshmen. 
(And when the Council is able to articulate a song, you know the composer 
has delivered the goods.) 

Archer B. Hulbert, Marietta, '95, writes a toast, "Beneath the Gold 
and Blue," dedicated to a pair of engaging blue eyes and locks of similarly 
engaging golden hair, possessed (so we are informed by reliable third 
parties) by a Kappa Kappa Gamma. Laudable! Anyway, Hulbert links 
his love for Delta U. and his — er — admiration for Kappa Kappa most 
happily. "By" Reed, '06, Union's John Philip Sousa, has done the rest 
If Reed is the kind shaken by the wind, it has not been an ill-blow for 
Delta U. His "March," which is in the song book, fills the long-felt want 
on chapter dance programs. His namesake. Perry Reed, DePauw, '07,. 
stands beside him, luring fair waltzers onto the floor with his seductive 
passages. These two dance pieces will be immensely popular. 

Middlebury, the center of the stage this fall, also has a flock of song- 
birds. We landed Stone, '99, for two— "You see we couldn't help it, for 
he's a son of old Delta U.,'* as he says. C. Day Noble, who looks back to 
'64 as his realizing year at Middlebury, is represented by "Vive La Delta 
U.," a stayer for all time. 

It's a long leap from '64 to '02, and a longer one from Middlebury to 
Stanford, but it's worth it. Have you ever heard the songster of the 
Western slope? We've got him, and you'll find him intrenched at the 
sign of "There's a Freshman." Fletcher B. Wagner has written many a 
song for the Pacific Coast boys, and it will be hard to beat his clever words 
to "Goodbye, Dolly Gray." 

For originality and quaintness, John Stevens Briggs, who lx>asts 
Rochester, '90, will be in the running with anyone. Ever come across his 
"Mythology Made to Order"? It's 3-ply clever. Here are the first two 
stanzas (and they get better as you go aJong) : 



SEEING DELTA U FROM THE SONG WAGON 283 

"Back in the mythologic days, at Jove's supreme command. 
The gods convened in solemn state, a bright and glorious band. 
The letters of the ancient Greeks were studied o'er with dest, 
And 'Delta* fair and 'Upsilon' were counted in as best. 

To find the noblest sentiment the Grecian language knew, 
All the celestial lexicons were hunted thro* and thro'. 
It soon was found, and Jove announced, as soon as all was still, 
That 'Dikaia Upotheke' was the one that filled the bill.' 

When you sing Brother Isaacs' music for it, you almost hear 
the rattling of the "deus ex machina" up near the temple roof. And Brother 
Briggs has written five others just as good. Everyone ought to know his^ 
*' 'Neath Our Old Fraternal Banner" by heart. 

M. Casewell Heine, McGill, '98, establishes international brotherhood! 
in his "Men of Delta U.," set to "America," or "God Save the King." 

It seems a long time ago that Arthur C. Perry, New York, '92, wrote 
his bunch of clever paradies, but one of these, unearthed by the midiiight-^ 
oil-consuming editor of the Quarterly, has been resus<iitated, and prom- 
ises to be a lively youngster for the rest of its days. Mr. Sydney Thom- 
son, one of the host of sympathetic friends whom Delta U. is proud to 
claim, has dressed this "Rush, Rush, That's the Cue," in a musical garb* 
of most exquisite and appealing fashion. 

Rutgers shows up strong m Kilmer's gruesome-sounding "Down 
Among the Dead men," which prophesies a just fate for anyone remiss in 
granting Delta U. the bald-headed row in the theater of his affections. 
A song for Alumni comes from Haring, '81. 

Well, well, here we aren't a quarter through the book, and Brother 
Goldsmith is ringing the bell on us for the last lap. And the wagon's 
good for many a clip more ! 

If we can't see all, this time, we can at least get a glimpse of 
what's left. There are the songs of Walter W. Drew, Michigan, '96, 
whose coals of inspiration were snatched from a red-hot altar. There's 

that quartette of Colgate minnesingers, who travel with Gray, 

Brownell, Fulton, Grove and Fosdick. Colgate crosses the wire first for 
ilvmibers, having ten songs to her credit. 

In all there are 26 chapters represented in the table of contents, while 
Technology has reason to be proud of the cover-design of Vonnegut, '06. 
The portion of the book given up to the one leading song of the Delta U. 
colleges is exceeding our fondest hopes. The college seal reproduced at 
the head of each song illuminates the song in a most attractive way, and 
has an independent interest. The drawn title-page, as well as several 



284 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

other art features, is full of interest and artistic merit. The fac-siraile 
reproduction of the title-page of the first Delta U. song book, published 
just 40 years ago, links the present with the generations gone before. 
And the half has not yet been told ! 

Standing at a distance and looking at the Song Wagon, the first 
impression one gains is of its strength and the uniformity of its lines. The 
workmanship shows that Delta U. craftsmen of to-day, whether appren- 
tices or graduated into the class of journeymen, have not diminished in 
skill, nor have their tools lost in edge or brightness. The standard, or 
ideal, of workmanship has not been departed from. 

It has been of absorbing interest to the editor to watch whether pres- 
ent-day writers would be inspired by the old cry, or whether "Dikaia Upo- 
theke" was a crumbled foundation, revered because a venerable ruin. There 
has been no defalcation. Truth, Justice and Honor still abide as the 
trinity on the throne. The fresh songs not only celebrate an honorable 
past, but invariably sound an exhilarating challenge to carry the battle into 
the future. 

Songs of fellowship are not wanting; there are rollicking banquet 
songs, keeping time to the tinkling of glasses freshly drained; marching 
songs making rhythmic the tramp of noisy feet ; songs for the great con- 
vention assemblages ; songs for a quiet Sabbath hour or to soothe a break- 
ing heart in the presence of death. 

There is a song responsive to every emotion in the wide gamut of 
human experience. And when the book is closed it will be possible to 
say that within its boards some of the noblest and broadest expressions 
of fraternal sentiment have been voiced by earnest and loyal Delta U'. 

The Delta U Song Book will be in circulation before the annual convention. 
It can be ordered from W. O. Miller, University of Pennsylvania* Philadelphia, 
or from Edson S. Harris, Secretary of the Executive Council. The cost will be 
Jl.50 postpaid. 



APPRECIATION THE BEST ENCOURAG] 



'^TIT'ITHOUT the encouragement of appreciation the editor of a fra- 
^^ temity magazine would soon lose heart. But the efforts of the 
editor have not lacked appreciation. It is hardly correct, however, to 
say "editor" as the Executive Council constitutes the editorial board 
and their deputy is only a "near-editor," with the term "managing" pre- 
fixed to the more august title. This means that he manages the editorial 
board. After his graduation from the school of fraternity journalism he 
expects to receive the degree of "M. E.". 

The alumni occasionally take the trouble to express an opinion of 
the Quarterly when paying their subscriptions, and some of these com- 
ments are now published for the encouragement of others as well as the 
editors and the M. E. (That stands for Money Extractor.) 

"I am exceedingly proud of the magazine, especially in its splendid 
new cover. I am glad to see that you are progressing." — ^Robert Valen- 
tine Mathews, Columbia, '95. 

"I had no idea that our fraternity had so thoroughly good a maga- 
zine as this ; I tender my check for a year's subscription and my appre- 
ciation of your own good work on this line." — J. W. Van Doom, Adel- 
bert, '89. 

"It is a fine Quarterly. You are doing a splendid work." — ^James 
Quayle Dealey, Brown, '90. 

"Allow me to congratulate you upon the fine Quarterly you are 
getting out." — Wm. H. Turner, Michigan, '84. 

"The Convention Quarterly has just arrived and I wish to com- 
pliment you on its appearance. The cover especially is very handsome." 
— Herbert G. Rich, Cornell, '94. 

"The magazine is fine— except the cover — do not fancy the green. 
The fraternity colors were better." — Stacey R. Warburton, Brown, '98. 

"I like its appearance both inside and out very much, and I congratu- 
late you upon the issue of such a good looking number. I think the 
cover design is a very great improvement over the former one." — James 
M. Gilchrist, Cornell, '00. 

"My compliments on your last issue ; it is most interesting throughout 
and has raised the high standard of our editor another peg. The next 
tmie you change the color of the cover why not make it blue, and retaining 
the present gold lettering form the fraternity colors." — W. C. Klotz, 
Toronto, '02. 

"The new g^en cover is a peach. You can't beat it. Don't attempt 
it by changing to blue. You'll spoil it. That's all." — John P. Broomell, 
Swarthmore, '99. 



286 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

"The new cover is so far ahead of the old as to defy comparison. 
The whole thing is just about as good as the cover. Don't remember so 
much life and snap in any previous issue." — Earle C. Anderson, North- 
western, '04. 

"The green cover is abominable. The old cover was far superior to 
it. The contents are usually good. Why not keep up the 'Greek Gossip' 
in better shape. A little less daily paper rot would be an improvement." 
— Mel. T. Cook, DePauw, '94. 

"The Quarterly is O. K., newsy and no long articles. Plenty of 
Delta U. enthusiasm." — Mel T. Cook, DePauw, '94. 

"It is a great pleasure to get the Quarterly. It keeps one in touch 
with college and fraternity events that we would never hear of otherwise." 
— Geo. R. Pirie, Toronto, '01. 

"The Quarterly is all right as a record, but it is absolutely value- 
less as news. The first reform in making it effective must be to change 
it to a monthly. This would require an enormous amount of work on 
the part of the editor and his associates, but it is one of the things we 
will simply have to do. I believe it not only can be done but that if 
it is done we will immediately find more interest in the magazine, and that 
it can be put on a paying basis. In spite of the large amount of work 
now put on the Quarterly it has absolutely no value as a medium by 
which the members of the fraternity can be posted as to what the frater- 
nity is doing. Of course I realize the difficulties in starting a monthly, 
but some of us must sec that they are overcome. I personally will be 
glad to offer my service toward helping to accomplish this." — Wm. J. 
>Jorton, Cornell, '02. 

"The Quarterly reads too much like the ^War Cry.' Green is all 
right to freshen up grass, an Irishman's heart and things like that, but 
I do not think that the analogy can be stretched to magazine covers." — 
Ralph E. Hemstreet, Cornell, '00. 

"I have been intending for a long time to write you concerning the 
satisfaction you have been giving to us alumni in the Quarterly. It is 
certainly wonderfully improved. I look forward to receiving it with 
interest and wish to congratulate the fraternity and thank you for your 
part in giving us such a readable journal." — Wm. Seaman Bainbridge^ 
M. D., Columbia, '93. 

"Allow me to compliment you on its well sustained excellence and the 
enterprise with which you look after its interests." — Richard E. Day, 
Syracuse, 'tj, 

"I like the Quarterly, every number of which is worth the dollar." 
— A. C. Heath, Colgate, '79. 



APPRECIATION THE BEST ENCOURAGEMENT 287 

"A continued change for the better has made our magazine a neces- 
sity instead of a luxury." — Albert Pfaus, New York, '93. 

"It g^ves me pleasure to commend the improved appearance of the 
Quarterly, but the improvement of the inside is the best part of it." — 
J. C. Litzenberg, Minnesota, '94. 

"December number is most excellent. It has grown beyond the 
dimensions of a trade catalogue and is worthy of a place with real maga- 
zines. I have not yet read all the good things in it." — Albert Warren 
Ferris, M. D., New York, '78. 

"Here's my dollar for subscription beginning December, 1905. It's 
a fine number." — Ralph W. Brokaw, Rutgers, '74. 

"You are certainly to be complimented upon the character of the 
Quarterly and all Delta U's to be congratulated upon possessing so 
excellent a journal." — Edw. B. Angell, Rochester, 'jy, 

"I have enjoyed reading it through. No. i, 1905, presents a 
handsome appearance and is extremely interesting." — Prof. Ira W. Allen, 
I,L. D., Hamilton, '50. 

"Permit me to express my appreciation. Certainly you have put 
these last numbers out in especially attractive form." — Dean C. Mathews, 
Adelbert, '00. 

"The Quarterly seems to me better than ever and you are to be 
congratulated. I realize that my point of view is different from that of 
the undergraduates and I wonder sometimes if in making it so good for 
us alumni, it is also getting better for the undergraduates." — Chas. E. 
Pattison, Rutgers, '84. 

"We enclose check to your order for pa)rment of subscriptions. You 
know what our opinion of the Quarterly is." — Patterson & Shaw, Col- 
umbia, '92 and '94. 

"The December Quarterly just received. It is a fine number and 
interesting and readable as a novel." — Melvin G. Dodge, Hamilton, '90. 

"Am much pleased with the appearance of the Quarterly, and its 
contents and prompt delivery show good management." — A. D. Phillips, 
New York, '90. 

"I have been 'looking and longing* for the October number of the 
Quarterly, but in vain. Won't you please look up your mailing list and 
see that my name is put in red ink, I would rather miss any other 
magazine I take than the Quarterly. Please send me October number 
post haste." — F. M, Scheibley, Lafayette, '98. 

"I think that you have made a great success of the magazine, and 
that it is certainly a vast improvement over what it used to be." — Henry 
H. Dawson, New York, '81. 



288 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

"I have enjoyed the Quarterly greatly and congratulate you on 
Its tone and contents." — Ellis J. Thomas, Williams, '88. 

"The Quarterly is mighty good value for the money and I find 
myself looking forward to the next number as soon as I have finished 
the last one." — F. L. Lavertu, Bowdoin, '99. 

"The special interest is due much to the special men you tell about — 
Jerome, Ridgway, Hughes." — R. H. Sweetser, Technology, '92. 

"The Quarterly is O. K. I have no adverse criticism to make." — 
Melville E. Mead, Wesleyan, '52. 

"I have been highly pleased with the Quarterly." — John G. Q>nner, 
Lafayette, '87. 

"The first number of this voltmie is fine. I compliment you." — Carl 
W. Scovel, Hamilton, '88. 

"The magazine is fine." — Charles Wayland Lisk, Brown, '90. 

"The Quarterly is surely worth the price enclosed." — Lee Stow 
Devol, Marietta, '92. 

"I congratulate you on the Quarterly. It is well edited and is a 
credit to the fraternity." — John W. Battin, Cornell, '90. 

"I wish to congratulate you on the constant improvement of the 
Quarterly." — Owen Moon, Jr., Swarthmore, '94. 

"The Quarterly is getting better with every issue and I only wish 
it came oftener." — S. D. Clinton, Nebraska, '02. 

"The Quarterly is at high-water mark both inside and out." — W. H. 
Hillman, New York, '81. 

"I wish to express my appreciation of the Ane Quarterly that you 
are getting out. Its large volume of news, broad-gauge treatment of 
fraternity questions and handsome appearance make it a welcome guest 
in our household. By making it what it is you have made every D. U. 
your debtor." — Shelby M. Singleton, Northwestern, ^91.

THE ALUMNI CLUBS. 

MILWAUKEE. 

HE Milwaukee Delta Upsilon Club held its annual banquet April 14, 
1906, with the following attendance: 
i?u/^^rj— Cornelius I. Haring, '81. Middlebury — Richard O. Wooster, 
'95. Wisconsin — Warren D. Tarrant, '90; T. A. Boerner, '89; Willard 
G. Bleyer, '96; R. J. Willets, '98; G. S. Cassels, '80; W. R. Kremer, '01 ; 
P. M. Binzel, '02 ; W. B. Currie, '03 ; P. H. Kremer, '06 ; P. J. Watrous, 
06 ; T. E. Schnitzler, '08 ; G. G. Blatz, '08 ; H. H. Karrow, '08. 

The banquet was enlivened by many of the old songs. Brother 
Haring, as usual, acting as chorister and general, all-around interlocutor, 
and was followed by a social-business session. 

The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: 

President, Arthur C. Kletzsch, Columbia, '93 ; Vice-President, Richard 
O. Wooster, Middlebury, '95; Secretary and Treasurer, W. B. Currie, 
Wisconsin^ '03. In order that the meetings of the club might be put on 
a more definite basis and at the same time take place at a time when the 
greatest possible attendance of brothers at the University might be 
expected, it was resolved that two regular meetings be held each year, to 
be known as the annual and the semi-annual respectively, the former to 
take place on the evening of the Thursday immediately preceding Easter, 
the latter on the evening of the Friday before the opening of the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin. 

Brother Wooster spoke of the coming convention at Middlebury, 
Vt., expatiating upon the natural beauties of the place and surrounding 
country. It was promptly resolved that if possible the club be officially 
represented at that convention. To that end Brothers E. H. Bottum, '71, 
and R. O. Wooster, 95, both from Middlebury, were appointed the dele- 
gates of the club. Two "secundi" were authorized in case either or both 
of these should be unable to attend. As we have another meeting before 
the date for the convention the two who will actually attend will be 
definitely known later. 

Brother P. M. Binzel, the retiring Secretary and Treasurer, was on 
the eve of departure for the far West. A resolution was passed expres- 
sive of the club's deep appreciation of his ardent interest in and untiring 
and unselfish efforts on behalf of the club, and of its deep regret at his 
leaving. Brother Binzel has since left for Goldfield, Nevada, meeting 
there Brother Lloyd W. Pullen, Wisconsin, '03, who left here several 
weeks earlier. Brother Haring had in a brilliant quarter of an hour 
reeled off at his stenographer a new Delta U. hymn, which, luckily, she 
had been able to catch and assemble, and sundry copies being by him

passed around, we were instructed that it was built to go to "America,** 
and we sang it to the edification, no doubt, of the inhabitants of the 
hotel, and certainly to the delight and approbation of ourselves.

DELTA UPSILON ALUMNI SONG. 
C. I. Haring, Rutgers, *8i. 

Hail Delta Upsilon, 
Each faithful, loyal son. 

Now sings thy praise; 
We praise thy lofty name, 
\Vc glorify thy name, 
We yield with souls aflame, 

Our future days. 

"Dikaia" leads our way, 
"Dikaia" holds her sway, 

"U-po-the-ka." 
Thy sceptre guards thy might. 
Controls our every fig^t. 
Upholds us in the right. 

None can betray. 

In early college years 

Thy bosom soothed our fears. 

Thy honor bound ; 
Then by thy fost'ring care. 
We learned to do and dare, 
Courage and strength to spare 

At last we found. 

You taught us manly arts; 
You helped us act our parts ; 

You were our guide ; 
Your virtues claim our voice, 
We, in thy past rejoice. 
The present crowns our choice, 

And will abide. 

Hail Delta Upsilon, 
With all our armor on 

We bow to thee. 
We feel thy strength within, 
To conquer wrong, and win 
Our laurels over sin. 

Hail, hail to Thee.

THE PENNSYLVANIA BANQUET. 

By William O. Miller, Pennsylvania, '04. 

'T^HE i8th annual banquet of the Pennsylvania Chapter this year 
-*■ was an occasion that will long live in the memory of those fortunate 
enough to attend. Heretofore the banquets have been enjoyable affairs 
to the thirty-odd men who attended, and it was expected that this year's 
dinner, which was set for the anniversary of the founding of the chapter, 
would take its place with the rest. In this, however, we reckoned without 
our chairman, Abrams, '07, who, as a hustler has been a wonder. 

The banquet was held at the University Qub, and a half hour before 
the time appointed the faithful began dropping in. When the two ante- 
rooms became overcrowded and men gathered in groups in the hallways 
and more kept arriving hourly, the venerablcs who have been in the habit 
of talking about hey-dey of their undergraduate years, sat up and took 
notice. Here were g^ay hairs, men garbed in clerical dress, a professor 
from Princeton, grads from Rutgers, Tech. Swarthmore, New York, 
Brown, Lehigh, Rochester, Northwestern, many of them faces which 
had never been seen at a Pennsylvania function. 

To cap it all, a half-dozen "early silvering heads" bobbed up and 
were announced as the charter members of Pennsylvania. Other old 
alumni, who had long ago seemingly been given passage to that bourne 
whence men seldom break away, also stole back for a night to live over 
the days of yore. 

Fully eighty men turned up and a superficial inquiry quickly showed 
that they mostly came because one man had insistently called on them, 
tirging them to attend, and that man was Abrams, '07. 

The banquet was a great success, the best Delta U. fellowship pre- 
vailed till the small hours, and the enthusiasm of the evening was an 
inspiration to the men of the active chapter. The most lasting effort 
of the whole celebration, however, is the realization that has come to the 
rest of us, of what one man can do for Delta U. who puts his heart into 
his work. As consistent and dogged a purpose on the part of twenty 
Pennsylvania Delta U's would build a house there within a year. 

An enjoyable feature of the evening was the interchange of tele- 
grams with the New York banquet at which Brothers Jerome and Hughes 
were being jollied, and the exhibition of the original petition for the 
Pennsylvania Chapter which one of our chapter men thoughtfully brought. 
The annual address is hereafter to be a permanent feature of the Phila- 
delphia banquet, and none could have given a more eloquent or inspired 
talk than did Bro. B. L. Whitman, former president of Colvunbian Uni- 
versity, who spoke on the "Significance of Civic Uprisings." The other 



292 . THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

toasts were as follows: Dr. Herman V. Ames, Professor of American 
History at the University; Edson S. Harris, secretary of the Executive 
Council; Henry Ashton Little, John C Hinckley, William O. Miller and 
Frederick S. Foulkro<l, after which several other men were called on 
by Bro. O. Lewis, toastmaster. 

MIDDLEBURY. 

On June 25 an enthusiastic meeting of Delta U. alumni of Middlebury 
Qiapter was held in the fraternity rooms, and the Middlebury Delta 
Upsilon Alumni Association was formed, with E. B. Qift, '93, president, 
and G. W. Eddy, 04, secretary and treasurer. 

On the same evening the Delta Upsilon Club of Vermont was 
formed. F. C. Partridge, Amherst, '82, was elected president and S. B. 
Botsford, Middlebury, '00, secretary-treasurer. The immediate purpose 
of these two organizations is to increase interest in the coming Middlebury 
convention. 



A DELTA U. BASEBALL STAR. 

JOHN W. Coombs, '06, of the Colby baseball team, of Watei- 
^ ville. Me., has signed as pitcher for the "Athletics," the Philadelphia 
team of the American League. Coombs is a young giant, weighing close 
to 200 pounds, and has made a great record as a baseball player and all 
around athlete among the New England colleges. 

During the summer Coombs has been a member of the Mont- 
pelier team of the Vermont League. Three years ago Manager Mack 
offered to sign the Colby man, but he refused to play professional ball, 
preferring to finish his college course. Coombs is a right-handed pitcher, 
possesses great speed and is a hard hitter. 

Coombs' track athletic work has proved as much value to Colby as 
his baseball playing. In the big intercollegiate games in Maine in May 
he won five first places, scoring enough points to win the meet. He ran 
the hundred yards in 10 1-5 seconds.

ABOUT THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIPS. 

The Caduceus of Kappa Sigma, commenting on an article in the 
Alpha Tau Omega Palm, by a Rhodes scholar says: 

Did Cecil Rhodes, when he provided so largely for the Oxford scholar- 
ships which hear his name, plan in ignorance of the differences between the 
systems of education in the various countries which he hoped to bring into 
closer relations, or in deliberate disregard of these differences? Did he for- 
see that many of the American scholarships would be held by gn^duate 
students? Did he surmise that these mig^t be driven to flock by themselves^ 
as an exchange reports they are doing? Did he know how little attention 
would be paid in practice to his suggested requirement of athletic ability? 
In any event, we can hardly doubt that he expected that many years would 
be required to bring forth the full fruit of his great designs. His spirit 
will have need of patience. 

It is greatly to be regretted if any of the Americans are making the 
mistake of keeping to themselves. Fearing to make this very error the 
Delta Upsilon Rhodes Scholars refrained during their first term from 
forming an alumni club. This was kept in mind when they did organize 
and they provided only for an annual dinner and a business meeting 
once a term. It is interesting to note, also, that the twelve Delta Upsilon 
Rhodes Scholars now at Oxford are divided between eight different 
colleges. 

In an article in The Phi Gamma Delta, "A Fiji Rhodes Scholar 
at Oxford," by a Tennessee Fiji the difference between the athletic life 
at Oxford and in the States, and the spirit that pervades it, receive this 
comment : 

This is in the athletic life of the students, and more especially in the 
spirit that pervades it. Ttie present day is the most critical period In the 
history of American athletics, and if those who are confronted with the 
solution of the problem could see the workings of the English system, their 
IK)sition would be much easier. In the first place, there are many more 



294 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

forms of athletics at Oxford than In an ordinary American unlyersity. A 
man has his choice of two kinds of football, rowing, hockey, lacrosse, cricket, 
tennis, and track work, besides several minor forms, so that every one's 
taste can be satisfied. Then It must be remembered that while Oxford has 
over 3,500 students, an attendance smaller than that of our own Harvard 
and Michigan, these students are scattered among more than twenty col- 
leges, the largest of which has only 32 5 men. This being the case, every 
Oxford student can participate In some kind of sport, and there is no evidence 
of that unfortunate situation In our American universities, where nine-tenths 
of the students are merely spectators. EiVery Oxford college has a team 
in every sport, and among these different colleges there Is as much rivalry 
as between any universities In America. The spirit, however. Is essentially 
different. The American motto Is "Win, by fair means or foul, but win." 
while the Englishman says, "Sport for sport's sake. • • • Above all, 
there Is no professional coaching, and such a thing as "ringers" are 
undreamed of. What a different sight from the modern American 'varsity 
football team! • • • To a lover of pure athletics, the sport of Oxford 
and Cambrdge must seem Incomparably superior to the college sport of the 
United States. • • • 

The same article contains a strong appeal to college men that our 
Delta U. graduates will read with especial interest in view of the fact 
that we have nine of the seventy-eight Rhodes scholars from the United 
States, as well as four from Canada. 

The next qualifying examinations will be held in January, 1907, and no 
FIJI of the Rhodes Scholar type should neglect this opportunity to win for 
himself one of the greatest prizes ever offered to ambitious young men. 
* * * At present only seventy-eight of the ninety-four scholarships 
assigned to the United States are filled. Nothing indicates more strikingly 
the all too prevalent lack of appreciation for the scholarships. The Ameri- 
can college world has not yet awakened to Its opportunities and responsi- 
bilities. I say responsibilities, because, after accepting the scholarships 
assigned to it, each state should recognize its duty to send its representa- 
tive every year, and should take great care that he is "representative." 
ITntil this duty is discharged, the scholarships can not reap their fullest 
advantages, and our country must be the loser. So every man that is quali- 
fied should do his best to win a Rhodes Scholarship. Not that he will find 
at Oxford equipment and paraphernalia superior to that wlilch exists in 
America, but because there Is a subtle Influence in the atmosphere of the 
quaint old university that not all the wealth of the multi-millionaires could 
communicate to a fledgling of their own creation. 

It is interesting to note the geographical distribution of Delta Upsi- 
lon's Rhodes Scholars. Delta Upsilon has chapters in but fifteen States 
and two Canadian provinces. In Canada we have one Rhodes Scholar 
from the Province of Quebec, one from Nova Scotia and two from 
Ontario. In the United States there are seven states represented by 
nine scholars : Maine, i ; New Hampshire, i ; Vermont, i ; Massachu- 



GOSSIP OF THE GREEKS 295 

setts, i; Rhode Island, 2; New York, i; California, 2. New England 
seems to maintain her traditions, claiming even the Nova Scotia scholar, 
who is from Harvard. There is a wide gap between California and 
New York with nine states in which Delta Upsilon should be heard from 
at the next examinations. 



Owing to the death of Mr. C. M. Zener The Phi Gamma Delta 
editorial pen is wielded by a new hand, Mr. W. A. Wood, whose first 
experience with his cliapters brings out a slashing leader. He writes of : 

♦ ♦ ♦ — the matter of chapter correspondents and the wonderful 
productions which reach this office from their pens. Evidently, somewhere in 
the remote past, before times were so busy, some one wrote the first chapter 
letter, and, bless our souls, it must have been "sui generis." From the 
outcroppings of rudimentary things which occur in the collection coming 
each month the first letter was surely written on both sides of the paper; 
they didn't use capitals in those days nor did they spell out any proper 
names carefully. Everything in that first letter was taken for granted. Of 
course, they did not have any such thing as a style then and it is not to be 
expected any correspondent could have brains enough to grasp what kind of 
a letter the editor of today would like. Then, too, the editor has plenty of 
time and nothing else to require any attention, so he can rewrite and respell 
most of the letters. One of our friends suggests we send out some one-sided 
paper. We knew of an editor who one time did editorially eay, if thingrs 
did not improve he would send out such paper, when some bright youth 
calmly wrote in for some. Some editors of fraternity magazines have tried 
to reform their correspondents. We know better — maybe in time they will 
evolute. Meanwhile the editor "is doing the best he knows how." 

We felt that way, too, six or seven years ago, and we tried to 
reform the chapter editors. We may have reformed the office, for 
conditions are certainly different, but the chapter editors have changed 
often rather than much. Occasionally a new man fails to catch the spirit 
of his predecessor, but as a whole they are conscientious, loyal and 
efficient. It may be that the Fiji man, having nearly double the number 
of chapter editors has twice as much to worry him. But we have 
regained our optimism. 



The cornerstone of the new Alpha Delta Phi Clubhouse that is being 
erected at 136-138 West Forty-fourth street, was laid yesterday morning in 
the presence of about 150 members of the fraternity. 

The club building is being erected upon a lot, 35 by 100 feet, and will 
cost, including the land, about |265,000. It will be eight stories high, two 
stories of which wiU be used for club purposes and the remaning floors for 



296 THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 

apartments for members. There will be fifty-seven of these rooms and apart- 
ments. It Is expected that the building will be ready for occupancy in the 
fall. 

The building, which is to be known as the Alpha Delta Phi House, is 
the first fraternity club building of its kind owned and erected in this coun- 
try. — New York Times.

Representatives of eight universities met at Qiicago April 13 and 
organized a new Greek letter fraternity, to be composed of those who 
iiave acquitted themselves creditably in oratory and debate at intercollegiate 
contests. Undergraduates as well as alumni will be eligible for member- 
ship. It is intended to make the society national in character and form 
chapters in all universities. The universities represented at the opening 
session of the conference were Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, Chicago, 
Iowa, Michigan and Northwestern.

The Sigma CTii endowment fund plan has secured to that fraternity 
in the six years of its working their Cornell, Stanford and Michigan 
chapter-houses, property aggregating over $60,000 in value, and each 
year adds to the fund $2,100. — The Rainbow of Delta Tau Delta, 



GREEK LETTER MEN AT CHAUTAUQUA- 

Delta U*s of the Chicago chapter were instrumental in reviving the 
annual Pan-Hellenic banquet at Chautauqua this summer. Fift>' Greek 
letter men from fourteen fraternities were present. Delta U. led with 
nine representatives, Bestor, '01, and Parry, '07, responding to toasts. 

Parry won the individual championship gold medal of the Chautau- 
qua Athletic Qub, winning, at its annual track meet, five firsts : the ham- 
mer and discus throws, shot put. high jump, and 120-yard high hurdles. 
Parry was also one of the pitchers on the baseball team, leading the team 
in batting with an average of .500. 

At the June Convocation it was announced that Femald had been 
awarded the comj)etitive scholarship of $300, offered by the Colonial 
Dames* Society of Illinois for excellence in United States history. This 
scholarship has been won five times by men; three of these, besides 
Femald, have been Delta U's, Bestor, '01, and Nelson, '01, tying in 190^), 
and Starbird, '03, winning in 1902. 

Lemon, '06, received, at graduation, honorable mention in the work 
of the senior colleges, as well as honored in the department of astronomy. 

Judson, '08, has been elected to manage the comic opera for this 
year, given by the Blackfriars.

OUR readers may be interested 
to know that four nephews 
of Ralph Voorhees of this town are 
sriven a place in the recent edition of 
••Who's Who in America." They are 
Edward B. Voorhees, professor of 
agriculture in Rutgers college; ex- 
Governor Foster M. Voorhees, of 
Elizabeth; President David Pelmley, 
of the Illinois State Normal Univer- 
sity, of Normal, 111., and Rev. Oscar 
M. Voorhees, of High Bridge, secre- 
tary and treasurer of the United 
Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. They 
are sons, respectively, of John, Nath- 
aniel, Ellen and Samuel Voorhees, 
and were all present at the Voorhees 
family reunion held at High Bridge, 
N. J., July 11, 1905." — Clinton (N. 
J.) Democrat, March 20, 1906. 

The four men mentioned above 
are members of Delta Upsllon — ex- 
Govemor Foster M. Voorhees, Rut- 
gers, '76; Prof. Edward B. Voorhees, 
Rutgers, '81; President David Felm- 
ley, Michigan, '81, and Rev. Oscar 
M. Voorhees, Rutgers, '88. Ralph 
Voorhees, the uncle, is not a college 
man, but has been a munificent bene- 
factor of colleges, having given the 
Voorhees Library to Rutgers, Voor- 
hees Hall to Carroll College, Wauke- 
sha, Wis.; the chapel to Maryville 
College, Maryville, Tenn., and girls' 
dormitories to Huron, S. D., and 
Hope College, Holland, Mich. He 
has also endowed the Elizabeth Voor- 
hees College at Velio re, India. 

Participating in the twelfth an- 
nual meeting of the Lake Mohawk 
Conference on International Arbitra- 
tion were Bartlett Tripp, Colby, '61, 
ex-minister to Austria; Frank C. Par- 
tridge, Amherst '82, ex-minister 
to Venezuela; W. H. P. Faunce, 
Brown, '80, of Brown University, 
and Prof. E. C. Moore, Marietta, '77, 
of Harvard University. 

ADELBERT* 

Active Membership, 19. 

ADELBERT Chapter expects every 
man who was in school last year 
to be back this fall. This will give 



us an unusually good bunch to start 
our fall rushing with. Besides, we 
already have several good men 
pledged and the rushing season will 
not be so very burdensome. 

As none of our men graduated last 
spring, we have little to say regard- 
ing commencement. The only man 
who participated was D. Handyside. 
who gained a prize in the Junior- 
Sophomore oratorical contest. 

Two professors whom many a 
grad. will remember with varied feel- 
ings, will be missing from college 
when it opens this fall. Prof. Mor- 
ley, well known in the scientific 
world, and Prof. Potwin. whose EJng- 
lish courses have always been popu- 
lar, have been pensioned by the Car- 
negie Pension Fund. 

In athletics last spring the base- 
ball team, on which there were four 
Delta U. men, made an excellent 
showing, as did also the track team. 
However, the most important affair 
in the athletics of the coming year 
will be the inaugruration of the new 
Bix Six rules. By barring all men 
holding degrees these rules deprive 
Reserve of many athletes among the 
Medics, Dents and Laws. The Fresh- 
man rule will also keep many good 
men out of athletics for a year at 
least. Besides, several of our ath- 
letes in the Senior class go to Case 
next year, so it is evident that old 
Reserve will be in pretty bad shape 
for the coming year at least. These 
new rules are, probably, a harder 
blow to Reserve than they are to any 
of the other Bix Six schools, and they 
limit the number of men from which 
we can choose our teams to less than

AMHERST* 

Active Membership, 20. 

AMHERST has held its own this 
last year in athletics. 

The college has grown in numbers, 
and in proportion to the numbers the 
scholarship of the college has also 
grown. 

In the different college actiyities. 
Delta Upsilon has taken its part. On 
the football team we had Lewis, '06, 
asd Osborne, '07. Brldgman, '06, 
was manager of the track team and 
Thayer, '06, was on the team. 

Delta U. was represented on the 
glee clubs by Howe, '06, Bridgman, 
'06, and H. L. Smith, '09. Lewis 
and Bridgman were on the Scarab, 
the Senior honorary society. 

The college dramatics were fine 
this year. "The Riyals" was the play 
giyen. Bro. Howe was chairman of 
the committee. Bro. Hall was man- 
ager, and Hall, Lewis and Haller 
were in the cast. 

Commencement caused a loss of 
nine strong men. Delta U. was rep- 
resented by Bros. Hall and Qlasgow 
for the Bond prize, which was won 
by Bro. Qlasgow. Bro. Hall was also 
ivy orator. Bro. Carter was on the 
Hardy Eight and Hyde Six. 

Among the class officers, Bro. 
Howe was on the Senior Promenade 
Committee and Committee of Com- 
mittees. He was also chairman of 
the Class Book Committee. Bro. 
Hall was on the Class Day Commitr 
tee, Bro. Pethybridge on the Pro- 



gramme Committee and Bro. Bridg- 
man was Prophet of Prophets. 

Among the new Seniors, Bro. Os- 
bome made the Scarab, and Bro. Pal- 
mer made Phi Beta Kappa in junior 
year. 

Bro. Haller represented 1908 on 
the Kellogg Prize Speaking Contest, 
which he won. 

At the commencement the alumni 
of the Amherst chapter formed an 
association. 

The chapter house has been re- 
paired and is in fine shape. 

We have two men pledged for our 
1910 delegation and everything 
points towards a prosperous year for 
Delta Upsilon.

came city editor of the "Review" of 
Decatur, 111., at the age of 21. The 
following year he became editor and 
publisher of the "Call" at Byansyille, 
Ind. In 1891 he went to Chicago, 
joining the staff of the "News" and 
the "Times." From 1894 to 1901 
he was editorial writer and foreign 
correspondent of the "Record" and 
trayeled in Mexico, Hawaii, Samoa, 
New Zealand and Australia. He went 
through the campaigns of 1898 in 
Cuba and Puerto Rico as war corres- 
pondent. The following year he 
made a tour of the Russian Empire 
and Central Asia, crossed Siberia by 
railway and traveled in Manchuria, 
Korea and Japan. 

BOWDOIN* 
Active Membership, 24. 

THE college year not commencing 
until the last of September 
does not allow much in the line of 
news, but the chapter has every rea- 
son to believe that the coming year 
will be most successful. 

The head coach of football and the 
first assistant are both Delta U's from 
the Bowdoin chapter. Bro. Laferrier 
has had five years of successful coach- 
ing at Hebron Academy, and has had 
the satisfaction of developing a team 
that outside of being beaten by col- 
lege teams has a clean record. Bro. 
Bean was captain of the Varsity dur- 
ing his Senior year, proving to be a 
natural leader. We expect great re- 
sults from the hands of these two 



brothers. It should be said that the 
chapter has two members on the 
Varsity, Bros. Blair and Stacey, and 
has great hopes of adding two more. 
As fairness only will be used in se- 
lecting the Varsity of the year we 
know that Bowdoin is going to have 
the best team that is possible from 
the material at hand. 

The chapter is about to begin its 
second year in the new chapter house. 
We feel that having a home to go to 
helps develop a man in a way that 
dormitory life never will. Much has 
been said lately in print of the evil 
that Qreek letter societies do to a 
college, college spirit being interfered 
with and interest centered in the 
"frat." We are constantly hearing 
men from other colleges saying, "Tou 
Bowdoin men don't enthuse over your 

"frats" the way we do at ." We 

don't want to get the name of it. 
President Hyde in his report to the 
trustees at commencement said that 
the fraternities and their houses 
were a benefit to Bowdoin. That is 
the strongest recommendation that 
any Bowdoin man wants for the sys- 
tem of fraternities in vogue here. 

Petty jealousies are unknown. Con- 
stant intervisiting is going on. In 
fact, we think that we have a very 
fine system, aside from the fact that 
we pledge men sometimes two years 
ahead of their entering college. All 
of the fraternities would like to do 
away with this custom, but none 
dare to make the step. We hope that 
it will be taken in the near future.

Active Membership, 21 

ALL the excitement of the last 
days of college is over and the 
brothers are scattered far and wide. 
Some have been fortunate enough to 
be able to take long vacations, but 
many will work for the greater part 
of the summer. Bro. Whitenack, '06» 
is traveling with the Indian prince 
who is studying sociological condi- 
tions in this country. He is to help 
the prince in the composition of a 
bviok from the results of his studies. 
Bro. Tucker, '06, is the purser on 



3o6 



THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



one of the Karragansett Bay steam- 
ers, and Bro. Sinclair, '07, is at the 
Newport ticket office of the Bay line. 
Bro. Reynolds, '07, who is taking an 
engineering course, is working on 
the new terminal of the Pennsylvania 
road in New York. 

May was the month of prize speak- 
ing contests and debates. The Qas- 
ton prize for excellence in oratory, 
open to members of the Senior class, 
was won by Bro. Barbour, '06, an 
honor which entitled him to deliver 
his oration on "Ideals In Toleration" 
at commencement, where it received 
marked attention. Bro. Sinclair, '07, 
won the second prize in the Carpen- 
ter prize speaking contest between 
the Junior and Sophomore classes. 

Our track season in May was a lit- 
tle more exciting than usual, al- 
though we won but second place in 
the New England intercollegiate 
meet at Brookline. Bro. Tucker* 
'06, was responsible for ten points, 
winning first place on both the mile 
and two-mile runs. Bro. Qallup, 
'07, won third place in the two- 
mile. 

Baseball, however, claimed the ma- 
jor part of our enthusiasm. We fin- 
ished pretty well toward the top of 
the heap, beating Tale twice and 
splitting even with Harvard, Prince- 
ton and Pennsylvania. Losing a game 
with Dartmouth, 0-1, and coming off 
next time 4-4 in a ten-inning game, 
were great disappointments. A few 
weeks before college closed the Phi 
Beta Kappa elections were an- 
nounced. Bro. Hurley, *07, was fort- 
unate enough to win the coveted 
honor. About examination time 
Bro. Hurley received another honor 
in being elected to the presidency of 
the debating union. Bro. Dennett, 
'07, was made one of the Executive 
Committee. Bro. Dennett was a 
member of the team which defeated 
Dartmouth this winter in our trian- 
gular debating club with Dartmouth 
and Williams. Bro. Hurley was cap- 
tain of the team which defeated 
Williams. Both of these brothers 
had the additional honor of being 
elected to the honorary Senior so- 
ciety, the Cammarian Club. 

The Liber Bruneusis, the college 



annual, came out just before examin- 
ations and proved to be one of the 
best in years. Bro. Gurney, '07, is 
to be managing editor of next year's 
publication. 

Altogether our next year's dele- 
gation is a good one, for beside the 
number of '07 men already men- 
tioned, Bro. Reynolds of that class is 
to be basket ball captain for next 
year. 

The usual stormy Monday greeted 
the class of 190C on class day, the 
eighteenth, but the next day proved 
to be the right one. Delta U. enter- 
tained at the chapter house on Tues- 
day afternoon, and had a stand on 
the campus for the friends of the 
chapter during the evening illumina- 
tion. 

The Brown commencement was 
very interesting to us this year, for 
two alumni brothers and a prominent 
clergyman of this city, a brother from 
Harvard, received honorary degrees 
from the old college. Bro. Winslow 
Upton, '76, for some time our pro- 
fessor of astronomy here, was hon- 
ored by the degree of doctor of 
science; Bro. Augustus M. Lord, Har- 
vard, '83, received the red hood of 
doctor of divinity; Bro. Charles E. 
Hughes, '81, was made a doctor of 
laws. The old meeting house was 
crowded; for, beside the* honorary 
degree conferred on the great insur- 
ance investigator, the New Jersey re- 
former, Everett Colby, received a 
master of arts. 

The most important change which 
has affected the college was the rul- 
ing in regard to summer baseball 
playing. The faculty, finding they 
were unable to deal adequately with 
the question of eligibility, turned 
their authority over to a committee 
of representative students, none of 
them to be a member of any team. 
The faculty, before taking such radi- 
cal action, raised the standard of 
scholarship necessary for eligibility 
and reduced the number of "cuts" to 
be taken by members of the various 
teams while away on trips, and, most 
important of all, made the require- 
ment that all rules should be sub- 
ject to the approval of the faculty, 
and that no new rule should go into 



CHAPTER LETTERS AND ALUMNI NEWS 



307 



effect nntil the beginning of the col- 
lege year following Its adoption. 
These rules materially reduce the 
power Tested in the student body» 
which seems very large on first 
thought. After mature deliberation, 
the committee of undergraduates de- 
cided to co-operate with the faculty, 
so the new rules go into effect in 
September. We think it much better 
to openly countenance summer ball 
playing on any but National league 
teams than to be on the fence, pay- 
ing the men in some underhanded 
fashion for coming to college purely 
for athletics. Moireoyer, since no 
Freshman or graduate student will 
be allowed to play, we think few men 
would come for a whole year before 
playing on a team unless they came 
to college for its own sake. 

As regards football this fall, the 
candidates return early in September 
to get used to the new rules. Bro. 
Conklin, '08, expects to return, and 
we hope will fill center as creditably 
as he did last year. We meet Dart- 
mouth, our old-time rival, in Bos- 
ton this year, and we would give any- 
thing to turn the tables on her, for 
the series is tied. 

The rushing season will begin as 
soon as college opens on September 
nineteenth. Bra. Swaffield's brother 
has pledged to us already, and others 
will join our ranks to make the usual 
•quota of promising Freshmen.

selected by the Attorney General of 
New York to assist him in preparing 
the case for the people in the test of 
the bill providing for 80-cent gas 
in New York City. His speech on 
'"Corporate Management," given at 
the banquet of the National Associa- 



tion of American Industries in May, 
was reported in full in "American In- 
dustries" for June 1. At a dinner 
given May 22 at which he was the 
guest of the Life Underwriters' As- 
sociation of New York, he made a 
straight-from-the-shoulder speech on 
the necessity for the reform life in- 
surance legislation. A complimentary 
dinner was given him at the Univer- 
sity Club, Providence, R. I., on June 
20. 

Some of the trustees of the Mutual 
Life are eager to secure Charles E. 
Hughes for president of the company. 
He has been warmly endorsed for 
District Attorney for the Southern 
district of New York. 

While Bro. Hughes was in Europe 
with his son, Charles E, Jr., Brown, 
'09, it was announced by State Chair- 
man Odell that his candidate for 
Governor of New York was Charles 
E. Hughes. The latter, on his re- 
turn, stated that the use of his name 
was not authorized. It is certain 
that he can have the Republican 
nomination and equally certain that 
he will not accept it from any fac- 
tion of the party, but only as a 
unanimous call.

From the study of the Rev. Henry 
W. Pinkham, Brown, '88, in Den-

these two enthusiastic chess players 
have been waging a battle by corres- 
pondence. Sixty-two moves already 
have been made. 

Mr. Pinkham is pastor of the 
Bethany Methodist Church, Denver. 
After more than a year of steady 
playing Mr. Pinkham confesses that 
he "can now see his finish." He be- 
lieves that in one or two more moves 
he will be checkmated. The games 
are being recorded on pocket chess- 
boards, about the size of one's hand.

ALTHOUGH last semester was 
abruptly and dreadfully ended 
by the earthquake, most of us are 
back again and doing better than we 
have ever done before. 

We opened our new chapter house 
a full week before the semester 
opened and immediately began a 
campaign of rushing which has land- 
ed us the pick of the college. Never 
before have we been so successful In 
our rushing and never before have- 
our prospects been so good. 

Along with our material prosper- 
ity, we are still keeping up our repu- 
tation in the line of "prominent 
men." Bros. Warner and Hartley- 
are prominent Senior class men. 
Bro. Hartley is captain of the cadets 
and Bro. Warner has been manager 
of the college comic paper, the "Pell- 
can." Bro. Wilcox is a fast 440 man. 
Bro. Phinney is prominent In class 
politics and dramatics, and Bro. Stem 
in boating. 

But what counts for more than 
college honors is unity and good will 
among the fellows. Our new chapter 
house acts as a unit around which we 
all gather. It has bred into us con- 
geniality and unity of ideals, which 
go towards making a fraternity, a 
real fraternity of brotherly love and 
community of interests. 

Delta U. of California sends her 
best wishes to all the chapters, and 
any Delta U. straying as far West as 
Berkeley will find a warm welcome 
at Delta Upsilon Lodge.

At the June Conyocation it was an- 
nounced that Fernald had been 
awarded the competltiye scholarship 
of 1300, offered by the Colonial 
Dames Society of Illinois for excel- 
lence in United States history. This 
scholarship has been won fiye times 
by men; three of these, besides Fer- 
nald, haye been Delta U's, Bestor, and 
Nelson, '01, tying in 1900, and Star- 
bird, '03. winning in 1902. 

Lemon, '06, recelyed, at grradua-

Hebberd, who won his secondary 
"C" as a member of the intercollegi- 
ate golf team last spring, and is 
captain-elect of the golf team for 
next year, won his way into the semi- 
finals in the contest for the indiyid- 
ual cup of the Homewood Club. He 
has also been playing as a member of 
the Weaton Club. 

On the football team this fall the 
chapter is represented by two from 
the championship team of 1906, 
Parry and Russell. The new Con- 
ference ruling shuts out, for this 
fall, Taylor, who will, howeyer, be 
eligible for track in the spring. 
Captain Russell, ex-captain Parry, 
and Taylor are expected to haye a 
general monopoly on the weight 
eyents in winter and spring track. 
Bro.-to-be Blair will be the dasn man 
of the freshman team, not being 
eligible, under the new ruling, for 
track until 1908. Bro.-to-be Weddell 
is also a dash man and broad jumper 
who will be ineligible, having com- 
peted at Denison last year, winning 
his "D". 

Moulds is a member of the Owl

By graduation or withdrawal the 
chapter loses seven members. In

'01 — Arthur E. Bestor, secretary 
of the Alumni Association of the uni- 
yersity, has just issued a book of al- 
umni statistics that has startled the 
college authorities. Statistics which 
tend to show that the University of 
Chicago is producing old maids and 
dealing an indirect blow to the stork» 
and that the higher education is a 
stumblingblock to matrimony. His 
books shows that of the 1,060 girls 
who have been graduated from the 
uniyersity since 1893 only 171 have 
been married. The percentage of 
women graduates who have married 
is about 16%. The statistics of Mr. 
Bestor also show that about 50 per 
cent of the women who have been 
graduated have taken up teaching. 
The average age of the women grad- 
uates has been close to 28, while the 
age of the men has been below this.

AS we enter on the 22nd year of 
Delta Upsilon at Columbia, the 
same enthusiasm and success that at- 
tended the founding of the chapter 
are apparent. The chapter has come 
of age in its own house. By the ef- 
forts of the Alumni Association, the 
four-story building at No. 558 West 
113th street, near Broadway, was 
purchased in June. What this means 
for future progress can only be ap- 
preciated by the alumni who haye 
been with the chapter in all its 
changing locations. The transaction 
was the result of seyeral years' agi- 
tation, especial credit being due to 
Bro. Leonard D. White, *87; Charles 
L. Bidlitz, '88; R. A. Matthews, '95; 
Joseph Van Vleck, '96; H. D. Brown, 
•96; Byerett W. Gould, '96; Goldwin 
Goldsmith, '96, and John Patterson, 
'92, the chairman, who furnished or 



secured the necessary financial back- 
ing. Bzceptional opportunities for 
rushing are presented by our begin- 
ning the year in a good house just a 
block from the campus. Phi Delta 
Theta, Sigma Alpha Bpsilon and Phi 
Kappa Sigma, howeyer, occupy 
houses right around us, while Alpha 
Delta Phi and Delta Kappa Bpsilon 
are across Broadway. 

A pleasant and successful com- 
mencement closed the 152nd year of 
the uniyersity. Byery one of the yar- 
ious functions was well attended, and 
the enlargement of the usual com- 
mencement program gaye much sat- 
isfaction. At the class day exercises 
Bro. Bssez deliyered the class his- 
tory. By planting the class iyy at the 
Chapel, the class of 1906 linked a 
new custom with the most recently 
constructed building. Among the 
Delta U's receiying degrees were W. 
L. Bssez, A. B.; C. M. Haight, B. M.; 
C. S. Fettretch, B. B.; O. J. Callahan, 
LL. B.; T. H. Allen and R. P. Huyck, 
M. D. The Seniors in the chapter 
gaye a house-party during commence- 
ment week, and succeeded according 
to their wishes. 

Special mention is deseryed by 
'96*8 decennial kneipe held under the 
management of a committee includ- 
ing Bros. Gould, Goldsmith and Kent, 
Bro. Gould being chairman. 

The appearance of the Uniyersity 
Campus is taking on a more collegiate 
air, as the plan originally proyided 
becomes apparent by additions to the 
buildings. With the recently erected 
dormitories is placed Hamilton, the 
new home of the college, marking the 
beginning of a purely undergraduate 
quadrangle. We also haye a new 
chapel completed in June. An impos- 
ing effect is giyen this beautiful 
structure on the east side of the Li- 
brary by fine stained glass and a lofty 
dome. Within its massiye wall is one 
of the narrowest spiral staircases in 
existence, hardly more than three 
feet in diameter. 

But with all these improyements to 
the campus, nothing to serye as 
ground for hope has been reached in 
the athletic situation. The commit- 
tees were unable to present a joint 
report and nothing has been an- 
nouced as to where Columbia is to

stand in her athletic relations with 
other colleges. Some fall sport must 
he found to take foothall's place. The 
rule against interclass activity is like- 
ly to he strictly enforced this year. 
To cap it all, there is much hard feel- 
ing against the President under the 
surface. 

Though the spring athletic season 
was about as dull as it could be, sev- 
eral brothers were picked for the var- 
ious teams. Temple, '06, was on the 
lacrosse team; Haight, '06, made a 
record for a gnreen player at goal on 
the soccer team; Clarke, '07, and 
Pell, '09, were on the swimming 
teams, and E. and R. Swartwout, '08, 
worked with the baseball squad. The 
former pitched well for the sopho- 
mores in the interclass game. Our 
latest initiate, Bro. Suarez, was a 
member of the Freshman crew, row- 
ing against the Tale Freshmen and 
in the Poughkeepsie regatta. We 
have also had fair success in under- 
graduate affairs. Bro. Pell was elect- 
ed assistant swimming manager; Cha- 
pin is president of the Debating 
Union and a member of Spectator 
managing board; Jacques, '09, is as- 
sistant fencing manager; Clarke, '07, 
Is president of the French Society, 
and R. Swartwout, '08, is on the Glee 
Club. Of our Freshmen, Bro. von 
Schrenk made the best scholastic 
record, standing almost at the head 
of his class. 

This year's rushing, supported by 
seventeen active men in a new house, 
ought to be productive of results. The 
sub-freshman rushing is already help- 
ing us. With the steady assistance 
of the alumni we shall get the ten 
good men that we need this fall. The 
chapter is at home to all old brothers 
every night in the week. Come up, 
then every man of you, and we will 
show you in our new house what you 
have helped us secure, and how much 
more you can give to us.

AT the time of writing this let- 
ter, we all are actively en- 
gaged in preparing for the rushing 
season, and find that we will have 
to make strenuous efforts in all di- 
rections In order to meet with any 
degree of success. 

The active campaign will not open 
until the 10th of this month and up 
till that time the most that we here 
are able to do is write numerous let- 
ters endeavoring to find the names 
of men who are coming. We find 
that the most sfTious difficulty with 
which we have had to contend is the 
lack of interest shown by the alumni, 
demonstrated by the few returns re- 
ceived from the slips sent out by the 
campaign department to the alumni 
the early part of last June. 

We all feel that we will miss the 
class of 1906 in the Fraternity and 
in the University, for they were un- 
doubtedly one of the strongest classes 
that we have had for a considerable 
number of years. But, -however, 
there are still left a sufficient num- 
ber of good men to pr^^vent the chap- 
ter from falling into innocuous desu- 
etude.

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



THE past year has seen a very 
gratifying increase in attend- 
ance at DePanw, the total enrollment 
being about 800. The graduating 
•class consisted of 54 members. 

The construction of the new Car- 
negie Library will be begun this 
fall. 

Commencement was a time of un- 
usual rejoicing in the Delta U. camp, 
as the active chapter gave a rousing 
banquet to the alumni at our chapter 
house during commencement week. 
We were also proud of the fact that 
four brothers received the A. B. de- 
gree, and the only two D. D's given 
were conferred upon two of our al- 
umni, Bros. Ouild and Dimmitt. 

During the coming year Bro. Sal- 
lee, '06, will attend Boston Univer- 
sity; Bro. Watson, '06, will teach 
mathematics and physics in the High 
school at Alton, 111.; Bro. Renick, 
'06, is timekeeper with the Sims & 
Co. Construction Co.; Bro. Earle 
Smith, '07, is city editor of the And- 
erson (Ind.) Herald; Bro. Stanley 
Gibson, '07, will teach at Jackson- 
ville, 111., and Bro. Penland, '09, 
will attend the Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technology. 

During the summer the boys have 
stayed in close touch with each other, 
and already have a line on a number 
of good men who expect to enter this 
fall. 

All are planning to return early to 
get the chapter house in good shape, 
and lay plans for an aggressive cam- 
paign for new men.

ald, '06; Meeker, '07; Leavenworth, 
'09, and Spencer, '09, on the track 
team and of Bro. White on the base- 
ball team last term was commend-

Our thoughts are now turned 
toward the work of the new year, 
and we trust soon to have within our

•58 — ^The Rev. Dr. Albert Erdman, 
pastor of the South Street Presbyter- 
ian Church of Morristown, N. J. 
resigned June 17, giving as his rea- 
son the need for a younger man to 
carry on the church work. No action 
on the resignation was taken. 

Dr. Erdman has been pastor of the 
church for thirty-seven years. He is 
highly esteemed by members of the 
church, and his desire to retire from 
active work is deeply regretted. Dr. 
Erdman is considered one of the

ablest ministers in the Morris and 
Orange Presbytery. For the last few 
months his health has been poor, and 
because of this more than anything 
else, it is said, he wants to give up 
his ministry. 

The South Street Church is one 
of the oldest and wealthiest churches 
in Morrlstown. 

*59 — The retirement of the gen- 
eral custodian. Lieutenant George K. 
Kellogg, from the Metropolitan Mu- 
seum, after twenty-four years of ser- 
vice, will be noted by those who fre- 
quently visit there. Appointed in 
1882, he then required only two as- 
sistants. So great has been the ex- 
pansion of the valuable contents that 
nearly one hundred have been need- 
ed this year. Of the trustees in of- 
fice when he began his guardianship, 
only two are now in active service. 
The late Louis P. di Cesnola, director 
for so many years, held Lieutenant 
Kellogg in the highest esteem. That 
the priceless objects might be 
watched over with appropriate care, 
apartments were constructed for the 
lieutenant in the building; he thus 
became almost a part of the Museum 
itself. 

Lieutenant Kellogg is a veteran of 
the Civil War. Throwing aside a 
profitable business in 1861 he enlist- 
ed as a private, serving in the Sd 
and 24th Independent batteries. New 
York Volunteers, for three years; In 
1864 he re-enlisted, and was honor- 
ably discharged in January, 1865. He 
was in all the great battles in the 
East under General Grant, finally 
witnessing the surrender at Rich- 
mond. 

Lieutenant Kellogg was born in 
Oneida county, N. T., his grandfath- 
er being Amos Kellogg, one of the 
seven New Englanders who founded 
the village of Clinton in 1787. He is 
a graduate of Hamilton College, class 
of '59. 

'72 — Albert L. Blair, who will be 
remembered by many as a most en- 
tertaining toastmaster at the ban- 
quet of the Hamilton convention, is 
a most interesting lecturer. He is 
now lecturing on "The Ideal News- 
paper" and "The Press — ^What Does 
It Represent?" His wide experience 



as a Journalist makes his treatment 
of these subjects instructive as well 
as entertaining. He is under the di- 
rection of the White Entertainment 
Bureau, Boston, Mass. 

*94 — Rev. L. F. Ostrander is prin- 
cipal of the Collegiate and Theologi- 
cal Institute at Samokov, Bulgaria, 
the only institution in that province 
at which the young men of Bulgaria 
and Macedonia may have the advant- 
ages of higher education. Rev. H.

THE greatest artistic event of the 
year at Harvard was the pre- 
sentation in June of the Agamemnon 
of Aeschylus in the Stadium. The 
play, which was given under the aus- 
pices of the classical department, 
had been in preparation for more 
than a year, and, as finally acted, re- 
ceived the highest encomiums of the 
critics. The stage and costumes 
were carefully designed from the an- 
cient Oreek models, and their gay 
colors, mingling with the green 
grass, formed a perfect picture 
against the gray Stadium and blue 
sky in the background. Everything 
was planned to carry out the classi- 
cal illusion, even to the tauny Nor- 
wegian ponies which dragged the 
gilded chariots. The part of the 
high-priest was taken by Bro. Briggs, 
and other Delta U. men in the cast 
were Bros. Hurlin, Jones, Lord, 
Knauth, Haring, Eaton and Lyding. 

This has certainly been a success- 
ful year for the chapter in dra- 
matics, since, besides our own Eliza-

bethan revival, Delta U's have taken 
part not only in the Greek play, but 
also in the plays given by the Cercle 
Francais, the Deutcher Verein, and 
the Sociedad Espanola. As the Hasty 
Pudding Club and the Pi Bta kept up 
their custom of presenting original 
comic operas, this year has seen all 
records broken for the production 
of plays at Harvard. 

In 'varsity athletics, the chapter 
has been less fortunate than in dra- 
matics. Bro. Oringr's injury prevent- 
ed him from repeating his victories 
of former seasons in the pole-vault, 
but Bro. Hanley won a place in the 
shot-put in the dual meet with Tale. 
The chapter baseball team had a suc- 
cessful season and demonstrated 
its usefulness as a source of fun. The 
first game was lost to the Tuft chap- 
ter by a score of 6 to 5, but the 
sting of defeat was forgotten in the 
pleasure of the dance arranged by 
our Tufts brothers for the evening. 
Later the team defeated the Tech 
chapter by a score of 19 to 12, and 
the Harvard chapter of Kappa Sig- 
ma, 16 to 8. 

On the commencement program. 
Delta U. maintained its customary 
prominence. Five of the brothers 
received their degrees magna cum 
laude, and two, summa cum iaude. 
Honors in special subjects were be- 
stowed upon three of the brothers, 
and on the day after commencement 
Bro. Lord was elected to Phi Beta 
Kappa, making seven brothers in all 
from 1906 to be elected to that so- 
ciety. During the summer, ten of 
the fellows are traveling in Burope, 
but with the opening of college in 
the fall the chapter will welcome 
back all but four, who plan to con- 
tinue their studies abroad. The 
chapter will have a larger member- 
ship than ever before at the begrin- 
ning of the year, will be absolutely 
free from debt, and with the large 
sum already paid into the building 
fund can afford to take an optimistic 
view of the future.

In the Fraternity League last 
spring the Illinois chapter of Delta 
Upsilon tied the Phi Gammas for 
the championship. The final game 
will be played this fall and we feel 
pretty confident of landing it. 

With twenty-three men returning 
this fall the Illinois chapter of Delta 
Upsilon feel pretty fortunate. We 
have some five more men in view. 

The officers for the fall are as fol- 
lows: John J. Bradley, president; 
Ralph E. Chambers, vice-president;

LAFAYETTE. 

Active Membership, 19. 

AXOTHER year full of prosper- 
ity for Delta U. at Lafayette 
has passed by and in a few weeks we 
will be hard at it rushing for new 
men to fill up the gap left by our 
three departed brothers of 1906. 

The college year just finished had 
been anxiously looked forward to by 
us because it marked the twenty- 
first anniversary of the Chapter's 
birth. Proud of the fact that we 
were now "of age" we celebrated by 
making our annual banquet a jolly 
affair. The feast was held at the 
Mount Vernon Hotel, and the forty 
Delta U's in attendance were full of 
spirit notwithstanding the heavy 
rain. 

The chapter rooms were entirely 
refurnished last June and now pre- 
sent a very cosy and inviting appear- 
ance, which will be a big help in 
rushing new men. 

On June 19 a mural tablet, given 
by his classmates, was unveiled in 
Brainerd Hall to the memory of the 
late Bro. John Rogers Peale, '02. 

Delta U. is gradually growing 
stronger along literary lines, and is 
now represented on the "Lafayette" 
board by Bros. Bacon, '07, business 
manager; Hutchinson, '08, assistant 
business manager, and Ross, '09, as- 
sociate editor. On the board of the 
"Touchstone" we have Bros. Bacon, 
'07, associate editor; Hutchison, '08, 
associate editor, and Craig, '08, as- 
sistant business manager. 

Last spring Bro. Bacon, '07, re- 
ceived half the Bloomsburg prize in

THE past year has been a most 
Important one In the history 
the University. Dr. Drinker, our 
new President, has been untiring In 
his efforts to further the Interests of 
Lehigh men. Dormitories, which 
the student body has looked forward 
to for years, are now an assured fact. 
The work Is progressing rapidly, and 
will. It Is thought, be completed by 
next spring. 

Chapter affairs have been running 
smoothly, with April and May busy 
months for us all. In April came the 
class banquets. Bros. Munro, '08, 
and Zollinger, '09. were members of 
their respective menu committees. 
Early In May, the Mustard and 
Cheese Dramatic Association pre- 
sented their annual effort, a musical 
comedy, "The Brown and White,"

which was fully up to the standard 
of former productions. Bros. Stair, 
Speirs and Zollinger represented us 
in the cast. Bro. Stair has been 
elected president of the organization 
for the ensuing year. 

Our third initiation of the year 
took place on May 18, when E. M. 
Spry was taken In, making a total of 
ten initiates for the year. Some of 
the alumni were on hand, and we 
spent an enjoyable evening. 

Delta U. upheld its reputation at 
the elections for class officers, as 
Bro. Dunn, '07, is athletic represent- 
atiye of his class, and Bros. Spiers, 
Spry and Kuschke, '09, are respect- 
ively president, treasurer and histor- 
ian of their class. 

Our baseball team had a rather 
disastrous season, as we lost the en- 
tire series with our old rival, Lafay- 
ette, and a majority of the other con- 
tests. Bros. Root, Ahrens and Munro 
represented us on the squad. 

On June 13th the annual com- 
mencement exercises were held at 
the chapel at which Dr. Drinker con- 
ferred his first degrees. Ninety-four 
were awarded in all, Bros. Root, 
Kendig, Tattershall, Denlinger,

WITH the annual banquet on 
June 13 th ended a most suc- 
cessful fraternity and college year 
at Marietta. Fifty enthusiastic Delta 
U. men were present to enjoy the de- 
lights of renewed fellowship in Delta 
Upsllon. Bro. R. R. Dawes, '89, 



acted as toastmaster, and toasts were 
responded to by several of the visit- 
ing alumni. One of the most inter- 
esting talks of the evening was given 
by Rev. Howard Hawks Williams, 
'44, whose grandson, Bro. H. H. 
Mitchell, had that day graduated 
from Marietta. In introducing Bro. 
Hawks, Bro. Dawes took occasion to 
remark that only in such an organi- 
zation as Delta Upsllon will grrand- 
father and grandson be found seated 
at the same banquet table, and both 
equally enthusiastic for the best 
ideals of the fraternity. 

On the following day the active 
chapter went into camp and for two 
weeks enjoyed themselves to the 
fullest extent 

The year 1906-1907 will undoubt- 
edly be most successful both for the 
school and fraternity. We will give 
up the rooms occupied by the chap- 
ter for the last three years, and take 
rooms better located and more con- 
venient in every way. We have 
seven men ready for initiation a? 
soon as school starts, and expect to 
add to this number from the Fresh- 
man class which promises to be un- 
usually large owing to the impetus 
given to the college by the erection 
of the new buildings. We are unfort- 
unate in losing Bro. Krepo, '09, who 
has gone Into business at Bartles- 
viUe, I. T. 

The new dormitory will be ready 
for occupancy when college opens. 
On October 17 the new Library will 
be dedicated. This will also be the- 
occasion of a general home-coming

THE one important college event 
since our last letter has been 
the graduation of medicine, '06, of 
which Bro. C. A. Lindsay, B. A., and 
Bro. Fraser B. Gurd, B. A., were 
members. Bro. Ourd was successful 
in attaining honors in the aggregate 
of all subjects, along with the first 
Senior Medical Society prise. During 
the summer months the brethren 
have been engaged in various ways, 
some taking full benefit of their va- 
cation in canoe or sail boat, some in 
the shops or hospitals, and some, 
fortunately but few, working up 
their "sups." 

The chapter starts its fall cam- 
paign under probably the most fav- 
orable circumstances of any year in 
its history. Sixteen men will be. on 
the active roll and two more taking 
up other work at the University. A 
couple of men are already pledged

MICHIGAN. 

Active Membership, 15. 

THE Michigan chapter in June 
finished its thirty-first year, 
and the brothers feel that the record 
of the past season compares favor- 
ably with the records of preceding 
years. The year '05-'06 began with 
a great dearth of upperclassmen, but 
the chapter ranks were increased by 
the initiation of a strong class of 
Freshmen. Only three brothers left 
us during the year, a number smaller 
than in several previous years. In 
June we completed the third college 
year of our life in the new chapter 
house, and every brother felt him- 
self to have been amply repaid for 
all his efforts expended in the chap^ 
ter's behalf upon hearing the grati^' 
ing report of the corporation of the 
Michigan chapter. 

We lost six brothers by gradua- 
tion, while three more will transfer 
to other colleges, and two will leave 
college to go into business. We be- 
gin this fall with a chapter of fifteen 
men, all good, strong Delta U's, and 
as a nucleus for a promising '10 class 
we have five pledged men.

'Bioned by the heated discussions of

'78 — Prof. Jeremiah Jenks has 
been elected president of the Ameri- 
can Economic Association. 

"A criticism of Prof. Jenks' book, 
"Citizenship and the Schools*' 
(Henry Holt & Co.), closes thus: 

"Certainly any teacher who can 
describe an economic situation and 
discuss its possibilities with the 
clearness and sagacity shown in the 
author's address on 'Education and 
Commerce: The Far East,' is a val- 
uable man in any university in any 
country. It is a model as to matter 
and manner, and the careful study 
of it would 'shake out' many a plea« 
sant and dangerous delusion prevail- 
ing among 'business men' and states- 
men." 

'81 — Geo. N. Carman has had the 
degree of M. A. conferred upon 
him by the University of Michigan. 

'84 — Winthrop B. Chamberlain 
spent the summer of 190o in Norway 
and Sweden and was taken sick im- 
mediately upon his return home

tion — due to overwork. Since Jan. 
1906, he has been in Los Angeles, 
Long Beach and La Jolla, Calif. He 
expects to return to Minneapolis 
early in the fall.

THE DELTA UPSILON QUARTERLY 



rapid rise in the consulate service 
is a most convincing tribute to Ms 
ability in that line. 

'02 — The "Society" column of the 
Detroit Tribune recently compared 
S. Wells Utley and "Jerry" Utley as 
social and athletic stars. After 
speaking of the "noisy students who 
think that the raising of a commo- 
tion is paramount" the article con- 
tinues: Then there are others, 
more quiet and not too full of college 
exuberance and spirit, like the Delta 
Upsilons, who believe that life 
should be as placid as possible, with 
due regard to the peace and comfort 
of the town people. Wells was a 
Delta Upsilon. 

'04 — Earl H. Frothingham has 
been stationed at the Disural River 
Forest Reserve as Forest assistant 
since July 2, and has been engaged 
in work in the large government 
nursery there. His address is care 
Forest Service, Halsey, Neb. 

'05 — Stowell Smith, Forest assist- 
ant in the United States Forest Ser- 
vice, is pursuing an investigation of 
the consumption, available supply 
and possible preservative treatment 
of wharflng and bridge timbers. His 
address is Washington, D. C. 

MIDDLEBURY. 
Active Membership, 20. 

THE spring term of 1906 has 
passed and another year of 

college is about to open at "Midd" 
and with it Middlebury will become 
the center of Delta Upsilon when she 
celebrates most fittingly her 50th an- 
niversay as a chapter with the 72 nd 
convention. 

The spring term at Middlebury 
was a successful one for Delta U. 
As a chapter we were not lacking 
in social spirit, yet perhaps the most 
engrossing business before us was 
the coming convention and our en- 
ergies were bent toward making it a 
success. We wish everyone who 
visits us next month to feel that he 
is heartily welcome and that he may 
go away with pleasant memories of 
our Alma Mater. Let everyone come 
and endeavor to make the 72nd the 
high water mark in the tide of fra- 
ternity conventions. 



The value of literary exercises in 
the fraternities to give poise and 
confidence to the man was well set 
forth by the results of prize speak- 
ing this year. Delta Upsilon forged 
to the front, Bro. Ricker, '09, taking 
first Parker prize against four com- 
petitors and Bro. Richmond, '08, and 
Bro. Holmes, '08, taking first and 
second respectively in the Merrlt 
contest. Delta Upsilon won |65 as 
against |45 for D. K. E., and the rest 
of the field was distanced. 

Holmes, '08, was captain of the 
nine and Coleman, '09, was consid- 
ered one of the best players on the 
team. 

The Olee club had a successful 
season under the management of 
Peach, '09. Haseltine, '07, and Bar- 
num, '07, were also members, and 
Holmes, '08, sang with the club until 
baseball work took him off. 

Commencement week came with 
its gaieties and Delta Upsilon cele- 
brated as usual. The annual frat. 
ride took us 40 strong to the qnaint 
old city of Vergennes where we took 
a steamer down the Otter and crossed 
Lake Champlain to Westport for 
dinner and spent the evening danc- 
ing or rowing in the bay. 

Class Day saw us well represented, 
Bro. Ricker, '06, giving the Presi- 
dent's address of welcome. Bird, the 
Oration and Cushman the "Will" and 
Presentation. Bros. Bird, Hooker 
and Ricker represented us with ora- 
tions on Commencement Day, Hooker 
being elected to the Phi Beta Kappa, 
Graduation took five from our active 
membership, leaving twenty men for 
the opening of the fall term. 

On Monday evening, June 20th, at 
the frat. rooms the Delta Upsilon 
Club of Vermont and the Middlebury 
Delta Upsilon Association had its be- 
ginning. Bro. Partridge, Amherst, 
'82, was chosen president of the club 
and Botsford, Middlebury, '00, secre- 
tary and treasurer. Of the associa- 
tion Bro. E. B. Clift '90, was chosen 
president and Eddy, '04, secretary 
and treasurer. The aim of the latter 
organization was especially to fur- 
ther the closeness of relations exist- 
ing between the chapter and ita 
alumni and to aid in arousing inter-^ 
est in the coming convention.
