Several members of the class had graduated from High School the previous June, and, consequently were possessed with more knowledge than they now have. It took all of that first year to lose that superfluous learning and drop down to the regions where human- ity exists. In the second year of their college course they accomplished a great deal of good. Having learned their relative place in college life, they with great condescension undertook to direct and guide the fresh- men. In the due course of time they imparted their experience to that class and graciously allowed them to benefit by what it took them a whole year to acquire. When the third year began, the class was fitted individually and ©oUectively to be a real factor in college life. It was at this time that they took charge of the publication of the college paper. This proved to be a splendid success, and the paper produced was far superior to any before published. During this same period they took an active interest in the estab- lishment of the athletic fee, which has beyond a doubt been a great success. In fact they were connected with all worthy enterprises of the college, and it was this spirit of helpfulness which enabled them to play the important part which they did in the school year just past. During this last year the class 'has allowed these student problems to pass into other hands. They have been content to direct and en- courage those of the class of 1915 in discharging these duties of minor note. But chiefly their energies have been spent in bettering the college. They have cheerfully lent suggestions and dropped kindly words of ad\ace to the faculty. They have seen clearly what was wrong in the different departments. Although, regretting the fact that the faculty and President have been so slow in following out their suggestions, they, nevertheless, have been patient and good natured with this body. This year is one of which the class is justly iproud. They have McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 23 labored hard and faithfully for the college. They have been long suf- fering and patient with the faculty and with their fellow students. Their parting word is this: The class has instituted these many reforms, but in spite of these and the great amount of good accomplished, they feel at commence- ment that they are just starting on lives which should be of the ihighest efficiency and should contribute largely to the "Supreme Bonum" Each member of the class will be glad to give his name and future ad- dress to anyone who feels that he might wish to consult an authority concerning any phase of college life or college management. 24 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 25 Prophecy of the Class of 1914 By Mabel Crump Since this hard task was given me, To write the Senior prophecy, I hied me to Apollo's home And there high in a lofty dome I looked into a crystal well. And what I saw, to you I'll tell. First, right before my gleaming eyes, A face looked up in glad surprise. The fK>rm, I saw, was sadly bent As the long hours in toil were spent. I asked, "Sir, what is that you do?" Said he, "From doughnut's holes I chew.' Who was the man you ask of me! Old Bob Peters you may see. Next I beheld a circus ring. With girls and clowns who dance and sing. And walking on a tight-rope there. Was Bemice Wait, I do declare. Whom next do you suppose I saw, Afar from native home and ma, A 'teaching little heathen girls? Miss Berry's face, all framed in curls. Along a stream my gaze now strayed — There stood a man, his clothes all frayed. And as a means of livelihood This man caught bull frogs as the could. His name — I tell it you with pain — Boy Deffenbaugh, our German Swain. 26 THE McKENDREAN Then there was Tommie Brewbaker I saw him still in search for 'her' Whom he should choose to be his wife To love 'him, cherish him thru life. A wonder now I will relate, 'Twas surely wrought by hand of fate; Tho strange it seems, believe it true — Mrs. Wiggins' face came into view. I heard her singing wondrous grand, They say her voice has stirred the land. Miss Sarah Verla Giles, poor soul, A sorry part will be her role; An old, old maid she's doomed to be. Who loves her cat and drinks her tea. Presented next unto my sight, Was one who early took his flight Away from joys of single life, And took unto himself a wife. But there I saw him plowing com Until Old Gabriel blew his horn. Pray guess his name, it won't be hard — *Tis Milton Hartman, our old pard. Upon a form I soon did gaze Which walked about, as in a daze. It wondered 'round in the debris, And sadly, wildly looked at m-e. Explosions there had been, you see, A total nervous wreck was he. With sorrow listen to his name, Poor Ivan Moorman, seeking fame. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 27 Do you remember Ruby Rice, The little girl with chin precise, How she and Grumpy lightly tripped Thru tango steps and never slipped? Well — now I see in vaudeville, These little maids are tripping still. A moment more and I descried, Our friend Sam Eaton, true and tried. This man has now quite wealthy grown, By wheeling smoke from zone to zone. Soon I did see a woeful sight! A man who chewed with strength and might; He sat upon a cracker box And ashes from a pipe he knocks. They say he does this day by day, And thus he wears his life away. His name I learned with some chagrin, Was Clarence Evers — pale and thin. And then I cried in accents wild — ''From our whole class, so meek and mild, Will no one go to foreign lands, That he may preach to ignorant bands!" And lo! I' heard a mighty voice Say — *'I will preach; let all rejoice." Then all was still, but I had heard George Hogan's voice send forth that word. 28 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 29 30 THE McKENDREAN ra?5?--.'^U'.-:i*- ..-'<; iK b Ba BERT M.

' * 34 THE McKENDREAN JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY McKendree College, it seems, will soon cease to be; 'Tis sad to think upon. McKendree, the ancient, the venerable cannot much long- er live. We weep to see the old school drawing its last breath. There will be much siorrow in the land, but neither sorrow nor tears will stay the end, the inevitable end. The past three years have been the most successful and progres- sive years in all of McKendree 's history. Finances have prospered, academic rank has advanced, morality has increased among the stu- dents, and a better college spirit has come to prevail. All this has come about because the positions of honor and responsibility have becD filled by competent and honorable members of the class of 1915. Now, another year and all will be over. The world is demanding that we come out and solve its great problems. We must go. The thought of parting makes us sad. Soon will thy halls resound no more with our footsteps, the Prof's, will cease to be astonished at O'Ur words of wisdom, the Spohs will go astray, for there will be no one to instruct them in the way they should go, the grass will soon s'piring up and hide the old familiar paths, solitude and desolation will reign supreme when the mighty class of '15 goes out to dwell in the world of con lict. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 35 A STORY It was ni^ht, the night of November seventh. Mystery was abroad in the land. Midnight came, as dark as the proverbial ''stack of black cats." Not a star was visible, the sky was black. The wind, fresh with the smell of a coming rain, sighed among the well nigh leafless trees. Silence reigned supreme except for the occasional long- drawn howl of a dog. It was just the night for some dark deed. The chapel was safe behind locks and bars, and the guardians of that sa- cred place slept the untroubled sleep of the innocent. Suddenly, out of the night six dark, silent shadows slunk chapel- ward, disappearing again into the solemn darkness. Not a sound dis- turbed the intense solitude. Now and then one might imagine he caught a glimpse of a dark, solitary fig-ure, as if someone was standing guard, keeping a lonely vigil in the silent watches of the night. A long half-hour had just dragged itself into the past, when, as if by magic, the six mysterious phantoms appeared together, gave vent to a low chuckle of fiendish glee, shook hands, and vanished like black spirits into the silent night. The trees, silent spectators of the mysterious proceedings, doubtless wondered what awful deed the morning sun would reveal. New the swift hours, as if anxious to uncover the night's secret, sped rapidly by. It grew red in the East and lighter until it was dawn. What a glorious sight then burst upon the eyes of the morning. High up on the chapel steeple floated a beautiful banner of Old Rose and Nile Green. There was joy in the hearts of the Juniors, wonder and astonishment in the minds of the Sophs and Freshies, and consternation in the camp of the Seniors. How did it happen? Echo answers, how? For five days and six nights the Old Rose and Green floated in tri- umph, despite an unsuccessful attempt of the Seniors to remove the Junior class colors. On the morning of the sixth day the Junior class lowered their colors after they had taimted the Seniors for nearly a week. That night the Seniors plucked up sufficient courage to raise their colors on the steeple above the clock. They waved half heartedly all of Friday and Friday night and until noon Saturday, but thirty short hours in all. Then at noon, in the broad light of day the Juniors removed the Senior colors and (proceeded to march about the Campus on parade, flaunting the colors in the very faces of the timid Seniors. Dr. Griesbaum was kept busy for the next few days attending sick Seniors. There were no deaths. 36 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 37 38 THE McKENDREAN SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Louis A. Butts.

Make your bed before 8 :00 o 'clock each morning, for you know not the hour the matron will oome to inspect. 3. Three meals each day you must eat in the Mess hall, except on Sunday, and that day two will be thy portion. 4. When seated at the table do not yell for ' * next, ' ' nor behave in any unseemingly manner, neither speak disrespectfully of the butter, for it is much older than thou, and its gray hairs must be respected. 5. Go to the President's office and get a copy of McKendree's rules, read them every day that they may be a light unto thy path and a lamp unto thy feet. 6. Uncover your head to all Seniors, Juniors and * ' Sof s. ' ' Try to be a gentleman. 7. "Freshie" cuffs on your pants are out of place, so are soft shirts. Consult your Faculty Advisor. 8. When you go up town, buy what you wish then letuin imme- diately, lest one of the Profs, see you loafing and lower your grade ac cordingly. 9. Break not these rules at your peril, Freshies, and if you do blame not the powers that be when you find yourselves standing on "Green Carpet" looking into their learned faces. 10. Proclaimed this 20th day of September in the year of Our Lord One Thousand, Nine Hundred and Thirteen, and in the Eighty- fifth year of this College.

GENTRY In 1912 Prof. Gentry was elected to the position of Ath- letic Director in McKendree, which position he now holds. He has been very successful as a coach in athletics and has, usually, led his team to victo- ry. He is popular with the students on account of his ster- ling character, genteel conduct and fair dealing with all. He is mot, however, a fanatic on the question of athletics and does not assume, as some ath- letic coaches do, that his de- partment is the most import- ant in the institution. McKendree will lose Prtof. Grentry's services this year, as he leaves this fall for Oxford, England, to study in Oxford University, where he holds a Rhode's scholarship.

McKendree became a member of the I. I. A. A. at the March meet- ing of the Association in 1913. The basket ball season was over but the base ball and track championships remained to be decided. For the first time in her history, McKendree had a good base ball schedule, and some of the best teams in this section of the state were p layed. The track team was probably the best that has ever represented us and a good showing was made at the state meet. Graham, our only entry in the tennis tournament, played well and was an acknowledged star, being beaten in close games by the final winner. The basket ball season this year was a success from every stand- point. Only two games of the regular schedule were lost and the team qualified for the finals only to lose there by two heart-breaking scores. The base ball team looms up as one of the best ever, while the track - team ought to be a factor in the state meet. The Athletic Association has proved its value by the results of the last two years. A financial stringency — one of the greatest draw- backs which the department has ever known 'has been eliminated. Careful and economical use of the finances made it possible for the Association to send representatives to the state track meet, tennis and basket ball tournaments; to keep up needed repairs and improvements on Hypes' Field and in the gymnasiums; to secure good schedules with strong teams; and to have a small surplus at the end of the year. The successful year of competition in the I. I. A. A., the strength of the Athletic Association, the loyal and enthusiastic support of stu- dents and faculty, and above all, the generally prevailing a^Ii^etio spirit are positive signs of many years of healthful activity. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 47 THE TEAM Eb'bler, generally known as * * shorty, ' ' has been a regular member of the basket ball team for the last four years. The past season during which he was captain was probably the most brilliant of his career. Starting with no experience he has developed until he ranks with the best guards of the state. His position is defensive guard and he is a past master at guarding two or three men, es- pecially on a floor where the baskets are on the wall. His height and long reach make possible his phenomenal work in intercepting passies and bloek- ing shots. He was indispensible to the team this year not only because he is the best guard that McKendree has ever had but because he is a very capable jumper at the center ipiosition. Next year will be his last and he will certain- ly perform even miore brilliantly than ever before. His best game was against Illinois Wesleyan at Lebanon, when he held Eliott, the all-state forward, from s'coring a single basket. CAPT, EBBLER 48 THE McKENDREAN "Boots" Willi "Boots" Willi, the little giant, and cap- tain-elect has played left forward for three years. "Bbots' " value to the team is not in the fact that he is a heavy scorer, for he is not, as he averaged less than three points per game. His ability to cover the floor and feed the ball to the other men renders him one of the most important cogs in the machine. His floor work is easily the best that any McKendrean has ever shown. His ooiol head, excellent judg- ment and hard playing make him an ideal leader for next year. His unassuming ways obtain for him the good wishes of (his assoc^iateg. The dllinoiis Wiesleyan? game here showed him at his best. Louis Pfeffer "Pfeff" Pfeffer and Loy are two small, but speedy forwards. They are both excep- tionally hard workers, fair shots and be- cause of their size and speed are extreme- ly hard to guard. With a little more height both of them would become stars. Pfeffer 's best performance was against Illinois Wesleyan at Bloomington, while Loy's most clever work was in the Illinois Wesleyan game of the preliminary touma" ment. / McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 49 "Ferd" Friedli Friedli, former captain of tTie Central Wesleyan five, came to McKendree with an enviable reputation in basket ball and his year here has not marred it in the least. Although small and light, he is without doubt the best running guard that we have ever had. He is extremely fast, a wonderfully good shot, and handles the ball flawlessly. Some players are great floor men, other good scorers and others guards, only. Friedli combines these three qualities and is very proficient in each. His banner performance was the last game of the preliminary tournament against Illinois Wesleyan. Roger Valentine "Valley" Valentine played his first year in col- lege circles, but his High School exper- ience had been excellent and he made an enviable record. He has a pleasing habit of being able to cage the ball from almost any angle. He is light and dislikes the rough work but his accuracy in shooting proved a deciding factor in several games. He will be remembered for winning the Hedding game by throwing two field bask- ets in as many minutes. 50 THE McKENDREAN "Johnnie" Harmon Harmon, the mianager, lias won two M's in basket ball, but this was his first year as a regiilar. Hi;; position was center af- ter the jump and he played that excel- lently for a man of his slight build. Abil- ity to cage the ball both from the field and on free tlirows is his chief asset. He scor^ ed the largest number of points and was very good on the defense. During the last few games, however, he had bad luck on shots and his average was materially les- sened. The Oarbondale game gave him a chance to appear at his best by scoring eight field goals and two free throws in the first half. "Snooks'' Smiley Smiley, otherwise known as "Snooks" also played his first year as a regular. He was an excellent partner for ''Boots" as botli can play the rloor with the best of tliem. He is fast on his feet, never loafs n minute, and the best man on the squad to break up a dribble. His shots are of Mif ]:;ng distance kind. His best game was Mif exliibition contest with Lincoln at the |)r('1iminary tournament. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 51 "Old Man" Moore Mioore is a guard of the E'bbler type and has been his understudy for the last two years. He is a "bear" for work; gets across the floor rapidly, and although rather short is the hardest man on the team to handle. If we did not have sueh a good back giiard as Ebbler, Moore would certainly prove a star. One of his best performances was against Hedding in the finals when he held Case, their crack forward to no field baskets. "Runt" Loy Pfeffer and Loy aTe two small, but speedy forwards. They are bbith excep- tionally hard workers, fair shots and be- cause of their size and speed are extreme- ly hard to guard. With a little more height both of them would become stars. Pfeffer 's best performance was jagainst Illinois Wesleyan at Bloomington, while Loy's most clever work was in the Illi- nois Wesleyan game at the preliminary tournament. 52 THE McKENDREAN BASKET BALL When the basket ball season of 1913-14 opened and the call for candidates was made, >only two of the regulars of the previous /ear reported. Stokes, the star center for three years and Isaacs, the hp<iTy scoring forward, had graduated, while Beedle, our best all-round '♦^- lete had taken the (position as Physical Director at Shurtleff. This left only Captain Ebbler and Willi as a nucleus for a winning team. Of the second string men, Harmon, who had played Stokes' position so creditably in several games, Smiley, Moore and Pfeffer were back in school. The newcomers of experience were Friedli, former captain and star of the Central Wesleyan team, and Valentine a member of the championship high school five of Mt. Vernon. Loy's matriculation in the winter term added another forward. With this material on hand, the prospects for turning out a team capable of upholding our reputation in basket ball were very discour- aging to Coa<?h Gentry. The defensive end of the game could be well cared for by Ebbler and Friedli, but the forwards were all light and small, while Harmon, the only aspirant for the center position hasn't weight which an ideal pivot man should posses. The thing which prov- ed to be the greatest factor in making them a successful team was their speed and team work. Willi, Friedli and Smiley form a trio whose floor work has never been surpassed in Lebanon. The season opened with a practice game against a Granite City S. S. team which was an easy victory. The line-up which started this game was the regular team for the rest of the year. Willi and Smiley played the forward positions and Ebbler was at center for the jump after which he dropped back to defensive guard. Friedli, the run- ning guard and Harmon completed the combination. Smiley was first choice at right forward in practically all of the games but Valen- tine, Pfeffer and Loy made him work hard to retain his position and were capable of taking a place with scarcely any hitch in the team play. During the first term Central Wesleyan was also defeated by a good score. The second term opened with a game against Washington U. on their home floor. This was the first ''classy" team which had been played and our boys showed their ability by forcing Washington to extend themselves to win by a small score. The Hedding game which McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 53 foliowea was tiie most tiirillmg contest that was staged during the >eai'. ine teams were evemy matonea ana alter torty minutes oi nard battimg tne score was a tie. Two extra periods were ipdayed and some spectacular basket shooting by Valentine during the last three min- utes gave us the victory by three points. Carbondale Normal offered us little opposition and during the second half our reserve squad easily bested them. The game with Central Wesleyan at Warrenton proved to be a hard fought contest but the result was never in doubt after the first ten minutes. McKen- dree won with several points to spare. On February ninth we met the Arkansas State Agricultural School, for two years champions of that state, and a good game was anticipated, but the superiority of the pur- ple and white was shown by the decisive score. Illinois Wesleyan, champions of the I. I. A. A. for 1914, over- whelmed us on their home floor. Unfamiliarity with the baskets, with the opponent's style of play and the fact that we were meeting the best team in the state may account for the large score. The team returned with a firm determination to get revenge. The otpportunity was of- fered two weeks later when Illinois Wesleyan visited Lebanon. The wearers of the purple and white had been coached and primed espec- ially for this game. The result was that they turned the tables on Wesleyan and by displaying the best team work of the season walked loff with the game. This victory and the one against Company K two nights later f'Oirmed a fitting climax to a successful season. Eight games had been won and two lost. A decided advantage had been gained over Cen- tral Wesleyan as the score on total number of games between these sdhool now stands seven-five in our favor; an even split had resulted in the Illinois Wesleyan games ; Washington University had won by only a few points on their floor; Hedding, Carbondale Normal, Arkansas State Champions, Granite City and Company K were among the eight losers. With this record behind them the team started to the preliminary State Tournament at Decatur expecting to qualify for the finals and hoping to place second. The first game was an exhibition contest with Lincoln on Friday night. The team played wtonderfully good ball and as a result was picked to make a strong showing in the tourna- ment. This game seemed to make them overconfident and w*hen Illi- 54 THE McKENDREAN nois College was met they were surprised and defeated.. The loss of this game compelled us to meet Lincoln again and an easy victory was recorded. The third and last game of the day was with Wesleyan for third place. McKendree played hard and well but was beaten 44-31. In the finals for the state championship at Bloomington the team met Hedding, the winners of the northern tournament and Bradley, the runners-up. In the opening contest with Hedding, whose line-up had been greatly strengthened since their game here, the team worked hard but was finally nosed out by one point. The game with Bradley was a duplication of the first. The final scores were the same, 26-25 and only the worst of hard luck lost the latter. ^'Snooks" Smiley had just made a s>hot at the basket and the gun fired as the ball was totter- ing on the rim, dropping through a half-second too late win the game.

Six of last year's men are back, while Whitenberg and Gibson who were ineligible for the greater part of last season are again in good stand- ing. Butts, Richter, Shields, and Hannon are among the new candi- dates showing the best form. Wolf, Whitenberg and Harmon are the leading candidates for pitcher, Whitenberg and Butts, catchers; Heil- igenstein, first base; Butts, Campbell, second base; Willi, s. s.; Gibson, third base, PigH)tt, left field; Richter, c. f.; Campbell and Shields, r. f. ^ 58 THE McKENDREAN 2: n u l< 2, < van c o" s «>• 2 r n n 2 =: McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 59 TRACK. The track team of 1913 bettered the records which previous teams have made. Three meets were participated in and a creditable showing was made at Peoria. Hiiurtkff, C. B. C, and Central Wes- leyan "were defeated 56-42, 51-50, and 10-11 respectively. The team placed Hfth at Peoria by taking 10 1-2 points. Beedle wion the running broad jump and tied for third in the running high. Eat- on was first in the pole vault. The work of Beedle wias especially brilliant all season. Willi, Whitenberg, Smiley and Eaton were counted as sure point winners. Stokes, although not running as well as in former years, was hard to beat in the half mile. MoOor- mack, who improved wonderfully, Wal- rath and Campbell were other capable distance ^nen. Caldwell was the Ibest hammer thrower we have had for some time. New McKendree records were made in the following events: Running High Jump, 68 inches, Beedle Pole Vault, 10 ft., 9 1-2 inches, Eaton. Shot Put, 41 ft., 1 in., Snodgrass. Discus, 115 ft., 5 in., Snodgrass. The huge silver loving cup donated by W. C. Pfeffer to the best track atlilet was won by Beedle. Medals for second and third places given by L. W. Smith were awarded to Willi and Caldwell. PROSPECTS FOR 1914. The loss of Beedle and Stokes will be greatly felt, but the improve- ment of the others, most of whom have returned, should offset this. Captain Willi, Whitenberg, Smiley, Walrath, McCormack, Vogelsang, Shields, Moore, Campbell and Bundy are showing well and will un- 60 THE McKENDREAN doubtedly prove the mainstays of the team.

Not only are the recitals being watched with great interest by the en- tire community, but everywhere its course of study is being comment- ed upon favorably. This course now requires six terms of harmony; three each of counterpoint, ear training, history of music, one of en- semble playing, one of analysis, and a recital. During tlio past year there were twenty-two recitals, which shewed the progress of the students to be remarkable. Only a few years ago, it was unusual to hear a recital, especially from memory. Now, it is taken for granted that each pupil has technical ability, and also a good memory. The seven Pupil's Recitals this year were models of what recitals should be. The average attendance was about four hun- dred. Evidently there is something in the training of the pupils that appeals strongly to the public for it is practically the same audience at each recital. The r)rograms were always interesting, doubly so hfcanso each number was performed from memory. So thorough was the work with the students in memorizing their selections that they McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 63 gave the series without apparent effort or any signs of nervousness, even with those appearing for the first time. The audience comes only to enjoy, not to criticize. Forty-one pupils played last year; this year, forty-eight. The McKendree Conservatory is a splendid train- ing school for future teachers of music, and its influence is permeating all of Southern Illinois. This is largely due to the strong (personality of the Director. Vocal Department Miss Latchiepell Myric came to McKendree as instructor in voice four years ago, and since that time the department has risen from in- significance to prominence. Under her skillful direction the depart- ment has grown rapidly both in enrollment and efficiency. The De- partment now grants diplomas to students successfully completing the regular course, and also for the two-year Normal Course in Public School Music. A Gold Medal Contest is held each year in which each contestant sings two songs, one learned with the instructor and the other, which is common to all, without assistance. .The winner of this medal in 1912 was Miss Florence Alexander, Belleville; 1913, Miss Bertha Webb, Ewing; 1914 — . A Scholarship Medal is also given each year to the one making the highest average throughout the year. The winner of this medal, 1912 was Miss Bess Carter, Freeburg; 1913, Miss Eathel Morgan, Maunie; 1914—. The McKendree Male Quartet, the Clionian Quartet, and the Girls' Quartet are popular organizations in the college. They appear on re- cital programs and in various church and social functions both in and out of town. Graduates in Voice, 1914— Cummins, George Fowler, Carbondale; Follis, Jess, Johnston City.

A large enrollment has lead to increased interest, and Miss Sligh, the director, has made the year's work attractive by the presentation of several conservatory reci- tals by pupils of all grades. In addition to these pupils' recitals, sev- eral artists' recitals were given through the year by violinists of prom- inence from St. Louis. The McKendree orchestra has been bigger and better than ever this season, and they have furnished a variety of selections that have been very popular with a recital audience. The department has sent out violinists, along with representatives of the vocal, piano, and expression departments, to many neighboring cities and towns where they have always been well received, and the combination has never failed to render a delightful program. Mandolin Club First Mandolin — Theo. Parker, Alex McCreery. Second Mandolin — Roland Stroud, Frank Brown. A more popular bunch of musicians would be hard to find than McKendree 's Mandolin Club. Their work is confined almost entirely to popular music, but they have scored a hit wherever they have performed. 66 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 67 McKendree College Orchestra Miss Sligh, Conductor First Violins— ^Mr. Hardy, Concert Master; Mr. Parker, Miss Hemmer, Miss Smith.

The work was at first handicapped for lack of proper housing and equipment. But in the fall of 1911 three -rooms remodeled and fully equipped were ready to serve as a food laboratoiy, dining-room and adjoining pantry, combined sewing and class room. Two courses are offered — A four-year course leading to a degree, and a two-year certificate course. These courses aim to give the stu- dent such instiniction as will enable her to meet all household duties in a scientific, economical and practical manner, as well as to give her the technical knowledge which will enable her to teach the subject. The department has grown in efficiency this year, new books, pictures, and illustrative material having been added. 70 THE McKEN^DREAN MANSFIELD DRAMATIC CLUB Ejcpression Department McKendree's Expression Department opened in the year 1909, with Miss Ehoda Brockman of East St. Louis as instructor. Miss Brockman was succeeded by Mrs. A. C Bancroft, with Miss Marion McCVay following her. The present instructor is Miss Franc Berry, a graduate of the Cumnock School of Oratory, Northwestern University. Miss Berry is doing effective work and has established the De- partment on a firm foundation. She is ably fitted for her work through her training at one of the best schools of oratory in the country and is making it possible for McKendree to continue furnishing public life with successful public speakers. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 71 The Mansfield Dramatic Club McKendree folks in particular and Lebanon people in general are fond of the right sort of amusements. There are many reasons for having a dramatic club at McKendree, first, to furnish the people clean, wholesom6 entertainment differing slightly from the recital and in this to substitute for the poor professional theatricals that Lebanon, in her many misfortunes is unable to avoid; secoind, for the purpose of studying the classics in drama, which, in themselves furnish splendid material for analysis and study but are too heavy and long for correct presentation; lastly, for the great benefit to the members of the department. Having realized that the enactment of drama is one of the most practical means of testing the powers of expression and characteriza- tion, the students of the Expression Department organized themselves into the MANSFIELD DRx^MATIC CLUB. They chose for their first play, a splendid three-act comedy "MR. BOB," full of clever situa- tions and having a plot of unusual merit. This was a decided success and paved the way for the ipermament organization and future pro- ductions. On Feb. 9, as a closing number for the splendid recital by the entire department, they presented a delightful one-act farce, "AN OBSTINATE FAMILY." April 14, they presented their closing performance for the year, a splendid farce-comedy in three acts "THE ELOPMENT OF ELLEN." We feel that the college and the department as well as the mem- bers of the club have profited by this organization. In addition to the members shown in the cut they have taken into the club, Mr. John Stewart of St. Louis and Prof. C. S. Gentry. OFFICERS. ■ ■'•] President and Stage Manager. _L. H.

She was succeeded by Miss Mary E. Copenthaver, whose thorough training and natural talents have made it possible for her to develope in a highly satisfactory manner the artistic ten- dencies of our students. This is the Department's first year in the College prosper and students are now receiving College credit. Thorough courses are of- fered in drawing and painting in the different mediums, oil, water color, pastel, pen and ink, leather, china and metal — these courses are regularly graded and lead to a diploma. Practice in making coloi combinations and a study of the treatment of color harmony in the house is taught to correlate with the House Ec-ouomics course. A course in drawing and painting, especially planned for children meets on Saturdays. The studio is a large, well lighted room, which is equipped with excellent studies in cast and still life subjects. Recently Rev. L. C. Wilkin, a highly valued friend of the college, presented the Depart- ment with six new tables, each accommodating two students. Much interest in china painting has lead to the purchase of a kiln for firing. Since there is no form of handiwork which is not benefitted by a study of art the Department deserves the heartiest co operation and support. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 73 The needs of the student desiring to become a practical farmer are completely supplied in McKendree's Agriculture Department. This department, under the direction of Prof. G. A. Crosthwait, who is himself a successful farmer, has had a remarkable growth this year In addition to being a successful farmer, Prof. Crosbhwait is thorough- ly practical and scientific. Since this department so fully satisfies the demand for the best in Agriculture, it is safe to predict a glowing future for the '*Ag" Department. 74 THE McKENDREAN Agriculture Club F. A. Stansfield, President C. E. Brewbaker, Secretary Arleigli Dewhurst, Vice-President W. L. Glotfelty, Treasurer Professor G. A. Cro^sthwait, Director. The McKendree College Agriculture Club was founded December 17, 1913 under the inspiration and direction of Professor Crosthwait. The first program was rendered the second Monday of January, fol- lowing. Since that time programs have been given every month, the last one being on the nineteenth of May. The club was organized to further the interests of agriculture in St. Clair county, to interest more students here in agriculture, to bene- fit the Agriculture Department, and interest prospective students in McKendree College. Each program consisted of several musical numbers, a reading or two, and several numbers along Domestic Science and Agricultural lines.

This would not be very much of a distinction if its history was not an honorable one. McKendree College is one of the oldest colleges in Methodism today, and her record is not equaled by any college, either denominational or state. She has turned out more great men than any other school in the United States. This is indeed a distinction. In this process of making great men the Phi- losophian Literary Society has had a very considerable part. On the pages of Philo 's records are found the names of very many of the greatest men that went out from McKendree College. In every line of activity, religious, social and business, may be found the names of Philos, who are gaining fame from their profession and for them- selves. Philo is justly proud of the many men who have gone in the past and are now going, out from her walls to bless the world and make it better. A manufacturing plant is judged by the kind of product it puts upon the market. If a factory takes raw material and converts it into a finished article i tis doing society a helpful act. Any process which takes rough, useless material and turns out a finely complete and high- ly useful commodity deserves the highest commendation. Philo may be likened to a manufacturing plant. Philo takes in tbe rough material — untrained, inexperienced, self-conscious boys from the farm and elsewhere — and makes out of them trained boys, skillful, self-confident men. Philo holds to the belief that in every man thert is some faculty, some capability, some power which, if rightly develop- ed, will come to the surface and be the making of that man. When a man gets into Philo 's trained hands he is made to work, and is hims?lf worked u])on after such a fashion that after he has gone through the traits worked out and the good developed; quiet, self-possessed, con scious of his power, a refined product.

A spread was given for the new girls, October third and all enjoyed a social hour and good "eats" after the regular program. The presidents for the year, each term of office being six weeks in length, have been Misses Ruby Eice, Emma Berry, Mabel Crump, Bernice Wait and Mrs. Delia Wiggins. Several new members have been added to the enrollment. Clio has been very industrious this year and some improvements have been made in the hall, among which was the purchase of six dozen chairs. The Annual Banquet was held December sixth, and on January twenty second, the first exhibition was given in the Chapel. Miss Rice was president of the evening and a most successful program was given The members of Clio, have this year shown remarkable interest in the work of the society, and as a result, much splendid work has been done. The June Exhibition will be held on Saturday evening, June the sixth, with Miss Mary Kenedy in the president's chair. It need not le said that the girls will again crown themselves with glory.

The country- we live in can never be hopeless, altho we know that our na- tion is hopeless; for unless ycu are listless or thotless, or wiltless, you'll see in some cases less really means more. For horseless carriages and horseless drays are about as common as cloudless days, and cow- less butter and cowless cheese are furnished to people of all degrees. At the wireless phone and telegraph not even the skeptic dares to laugh. Boneless chicken and boneless ham have become as common as a beardless man, and seedless oranges and seedless raisins are serv- ed out to us on all occasions. The noiseless typewriter and the noiseless slate have called down blessings on the inventor's pate. On the rustless tinware and the rustless skate we have noticed some red spots here of late. The dustless erasers and carpet-sweepers have brot more smiles than the old time reapers. The tasteless castor-oil and tasteless quinine have become so good that the kids don't whine. Creamless ice-cream and lemonadeless lemonade ^lave become the druggists stock in trade. The drugless doctors and queueless Chinese are not eligible to Ph. D.'s. With hornless sheep and hornless cattle the time has come for bloodless battle. Painless dentists and acheless teeth have removed another source of grief. Frictionless bearings and punctureless tires have become a part of our horseless cars. But the crankless auto and the autoless crank have not learned to run on an empty tank. Wilson's trustless country and revolutionless Mexico are sure to come, but they travel slow. Cobless com and stingless bees, spineless cacti covered with leaves, and saloonless towns that are free from drunks are hooped for along with stinkless skunks.. But the squallless baby and the barkless dog, the gruntless pig and the croak- less frog, the smokeless boys, and the cussless men are about as scarce as the teeth of a hen. But the hobbleless dress and the splitless skirt, on the girl that does not delight to flirt, with the paintless cheeks and the ratless hair are still found occasionally here and there. Our col- lege is not spiritless nnd our campus is not treeless, our classes are not colorless and our dorm is not B-less, and a satisfied student in a tobaecoless school is an exception instead of a rule. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 95 In spite of the tales told by careless and thotless, we'll never be worthless, careless or lifeless, and none of us need to be girlless or wifeless. Some students may grow to be toothless and hairless, but none we hope will be cheerless or prayerless. Altho ho path is thorn- less and no winter iceless, your life is not hopeless, your career may be priceless. As you travel the road neither sunless nor showerless, your path to the grave will never be flowerless. So 'heres to the stu- dents, the tearless, and fearless; we'll prove to the world we are also the peerless. Guy Dewhirst. Twenty-third Psalm-Revised. The Pony is my helper, I shall not flunk. He maketh me to sit in my own seat, he leadeth me in the paths of diligent students for my grades ' sake. Yet, though I walk thru the valley of hard exams, I will fear no Prof, for thou art in my pocket. Thou helpst in translations, thou comfortest me. Thou preparest my paper before me in the pres- ence of mine enemy, the Prof. Thou annointest my head with praise, my grade runneth high. Surely honor and good grades shall follow me all the days of my college life, for I will ride on the back of my pony forever. 96 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 97 IDA M. SAa^ETT MRS. LUCY BEVIS Guardians of the Peace in the Mule Barn and in the Angel Roost. 98 THE McKENDREAN Thanksgiving at Carnegie Hall The fog had settled lazily upon Carnegie Hall So thick with gloom we scarce could see old Recitation's walls. The trees like giant skeletons arrayed in misty gray, Stretched forth their shadowy hands toward the tardy dawn of day. At five, Ealph Gehr did hustle out the kitchen fire to make, (His going home to dine on Turk' was only just a fake.) The villian, Taylor, as you know, must have a holiday After the effort he put fourth in that charming little play. . And so the day began to dawn, this gray Thanksgiving morn. No gun was fired, no bell was rung,no blast upon the horn. On each and all, as he awoke,, a solemn stillness fell, For what the day would shadow forth no mortal man could tell. The eO'W-bell tinkled merrily within the sacred halls. The boys came tumbling down the stairs but with no fatal falls. They met the g'irls, who solemnly came forth to Pearson Hall. So sweetly fresh, and thankful to hear that cow-bell call. The breakfast there was surely fine and we were truly grateful. But dinner was upon our minds, we couldn't be forgetful Of all those wondrous viands our homefolks were concocting. While little imps of ennui on qur hearts were pirouetting. The sen'ice at the churcli was fine, the sermon grand and noble, The music sweet and full of joy soon banished thots of trouble. Then in the solemn, thankful mood, with sunshine all about us, Within our souls and in the air, we wandered thru the campus. Back to tlu' donii wo slowly came with hunger gnawing frantic. But when we lieard that dinner bell 'twas good to see the antics Of dapper boys in brand new suits, in which they looked quite dandy; And others with new ties and pins which some had left out handy. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 99 We decided on a program to be rendered in the eve, We'd gather prompt, in dear Clark Hall and stunts we'd freely give. Now Bishop Smith, the leader, is a smartly proper man. He takes the management in hand and prays and reads a Psalm. A solo by Max Goldman makes us feel the thrill of praise We would join in holy anthem while our hearts on high we raise. Nobles in a Declamation, and Brown in joyful song, F. Brodhecker an essay reads; so our program moves along. Ralph Gehr can play the violin with grace and animation, And sing with purity of tones that calls for an ovation. A reading by Paul Carson is also on the list. But Carson has an invite, so his reading will be missed. The Quartete is a leader, as fine as you will hear Upon the stage professional in lands both far and near. Our program will include the girls, but we don't know their talents. This truth is sure, they'll do their best to keep an even balance. McKendree has a noble set of young men brave and steady. Who never fail to ring out true. They are always strong and ready. Tbe purple of their banner shall speak of royal worth. Tn white its richest purity of life is shadowed forth. — I. S.

I dreamed that I got mar- ried,, but just as the performance was over I awoke, and I'm afraid that's the way it will be if the real thing ever happens."

Are the lassies of McKendree And the dear old College Days. When the waiters in the kitchen Filled their pitchers from the tin. When the dinner bell had sounded And the lads came trooping in. One could scarce find explanation W'hy the boys were so elate, Was it lasses at their elbows. Or the lasses on the plate? Pleasing was the scene in Eden To its solitary pair. , So our eyes were wont to revel In a picture passing fair. Paradise at morn and evening Oh, that one could justice do it; The lasses in the middies. And the lasses in the cruet. 112 THE McKENDREAN Now Adam fell in Paradise And we in Eden fell 'Twas too much apple tempted him And us — No need to tell, Which lasses think you now of blame The greater Sfhare should take The ones that gave us hearts disease Or made our stomachs ache. In that queer and quiet future Surely stealing on us all When the twilight round the ages Lets her shadowy curtain fall. Will our minds revert in fancy To the past and its sweet charms, To those lasses on our fingers, And those lasses in our arms. McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 113 The Students Decaologue. Revised Version.

Remember the Sabbath day, to go to church at least twice. 4. Thou shalt honor the President and the Faculty, that thy days may be long in the land whither thy old man hath sent th^ee. 5. Thou shalt not cast away fried potatoes which thy Mother Mac giveth to thee. 6. Thou shalt not drop a class without first consulting the Prof, thereof, in order that be may know if thou art absent from the class. 7.

Ebbler asked "Baby" Walker in yearning, pleading tones, if he could not give her an engagement ring for her birthday. But she comes from a thrifty and far-seeing family which never loses its pres- ence of mind. '*No, darling," Pearl whispered, "I'll take the ring now. Let my birthday bring its happy surprises just as usual." First Club Member i^sampling beverages with appreciation — "Eeally this is siplendid stuff. They say it is both meat and drink." Second Club Member — ' ' You 're right there, and if you take plenty of it, it'll find you lodging too." Prof. Crosthwait suggests that it behooves McKendree boys to realize that they cannot live without "Rice." We notice that Mr. Butts needs no encouragement or suggestion. Visitor — "I understand that you have a fine track team here. Who holds most of the medals!" Prof. Gentry — "The pawnbroker." Girls faults are many, Boys have only two, Everything they say, Aind everything they do. Prof. Crosthwait, while illustrating a point in class, told this one. Once upon a time Pat hired out to a farmer. When he came into town at the end of the week he was asked this question: "Well, Pat, how do you like the farm?" "Oh," said Pat, "it's just like Heaven." "How is that?" inquired the friend. "There's no night there," replied Pat. Ag. Engineering; Wait — "What do they make those long leather belts out of?" Brewbaker — * ' Giraffe necks. ' ' Prof. Crosthwait — "Then I suppose they make rubber belts out of rubber necks." McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 1 1 7 A student prayer on the night before exams: "Now I lay me down to rest, For tomorrow's awful test. If I should die before I wake, Thank Heaven, I'll have no test to take.'* Snooks, to Prof. Gentry— "I made 100 today. Prof." Prof. Gentry— "Good! What in, Snooks?" Snooks — "Fifty in Chemistry and fifty in Astronomy." Dr. Walton (getting up to lead ohai3el) — "I have several live newspaper clippings, but I did not know I was to lead chapel this morning so I suppose I'll have to read from the Bible." 'Twas apple cider time. Dewhirst went to the cider mill, filled his jug and returned home, then sent an invitation to Ebbler, Petty and Bundy to come over and imbibe; they responded, and from their actions later we think Dewhirst surely went to the wrong cider mill. Bundy, returning from the Y. M. C. A., started into his room, but as <he opened the door a pail of water tumbled down upon him. He said nothing but listening quietly he heard Torrence and Isaacs chuckling to themselves and knew they were the guilty ones. Soon bedtime came and the two boys securely locked their door, left the key in the lock to make sure of no disturbance for they felt that something might happen. Eleven o'clock came and "all was well" to the work- ers of devilment, who were sound asleep; but before twelve o'clock some urchin climbed in at the window, quietly stepped to the door, unlocked it and gave admittance to his two partners, who each had a large pail of water. One water carrier stepped to the bed where Torrence had long before passed into the land of know-nothing, the other went to Isaac's bed. At a given signal they removed all covers and dashed the water upon the occupants of the beds. Feeling the dampness they soon aroused, but when they came to themselves they were all alone. Torrence uttered oaths of madness while Isaacs laughed. Something had to be done,, but what? Nobody knows, nor do we know how they ^pent the remainder of that cold February night. Walking ads for the dining-hall— Cyrene Shattgen, Fattie Stroud, Fattie Shields, Deacon Phillippi. Taylor and Heslet are dctng fine work this year— among tlie girls. Prof. Thrall— "Mr. Trautman what is the plural of "I". Mr. Trautman — "You." 118 THE McKENDREAN Things heard in the Mess Hall: Pass the Gum, Shoot the Hash. Eoll the Sour Kraut. Pass the Keview of Reviews. Country butter today? Eat this or we'll get it next meal. Mr. Warren must have thought that Alice Stewart had reformed. At least she should feel highly honored. You know what we mean, Alice. Miss Brainard has been studying "beauty hints" and inquiring how to improve her looks in general. But when we saw that she was sitting near Prof. New at the table, the mystery was solved. She even pursues that poor man on Sunday afternoons. When he is in- tent on going to the conservatory, she insists that he go with her to the cemetery. Out of politeness he does so, poor man! Would that he could divide his attentions among his admirers. We would advise Mary Kennedy not to laugh while crossing the dining hall, for we fear she might bump into some of the tables, — her sight being impeded. Mrs. Bevis — "Miss Ball, have you been out this evening?" Mary — "Xo, not since I've been in." Mr. Deffenbaugh disclosed a beauty hint in English class, when he said that he consults Alden's English Verse for styles. Now we know where Mr. Deffenbaugh obtains his ideas for individual fash- ion. Louis Pfeffer was reading Greek, when 'he came to the expres- sion, ''beasts of burden." In his excitement he said "bursts of beaden." Mr. Heslet has been heard to remark that he is surprised tO' hear himself called a "sissy." Mr. Gates openly admitted his admiration for Miss Brainard. He twisted and squirmed that he might feast his eyes upon her. In fact, he left school because he had become cross-eyed from twisting his head so much. His supreme moment of delight, however, was when he managed to get a glimpse of her lovely brown eyes. "That Prof, gave me D — . What did he give you?" asked Traut- man. Handle — "He gave me H — ."

If Prof. Giles should quit trying to make his classes believe that he was a regular "tough mutt" when he was in college. WANTED To trade — A parlor lamp for a small settee. — Boots Willi.

Quaker Oats in the dining hall with fewer than 25 bugs to the square inch. Potatoes cooked less than a week before serving.

Kinnison. Mr. and Mrs. H. E. McKnight. Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Latimer. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Curtiss. Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Hartman. Mr. and Mrs. Noah Douthit. Some Mysteries. 1. What brand of hair restorer Prof. Dolley uses. 2. Why Ma B.'s hair is always combed the same way. 3. Where to find a Salamis horse. 4. How the Juniors went thru three locks to enter the chapel tower and float their colors. 5. Why Dr. Harmon didn't get into the color rush. Katherine and Dieckman were about to enter a crowed car. "Do you suppose we can squeeze in here?" Dieckman asked. "Don't you think we had better wait until we get back on the "pike!" was Kath- erine 's low reply. John Harmon was arguing with Paul Shields as to whose father was the greater man, when Shields said: "Your father ain't no good. Mine has given me a hen thatlays an egg every week." "That's nothing," John exclaimed quickly, "My father lays a cornerstone every week." Miss Willard was complaining to her waiter of the quality of milk he served her. He replied that he was just as sorry as she was, and that he had really wept when he was forced to serve it. "Oh, yes, I believe that, "responded Miss Willard, "but I have a suggestion to offer. In the future see that you do not drop your tears into our pitcher." It was on Saint Patrick's day when, boasting of England's pos- sessions, Landis said, "The sun never sets on England's possessions." MoCreery — "No, the Lord is afraid to leave her in the dark." The sewing class of D. S. was examining some table cloths and de- manded to be shown the newest patterns. In desperation the salesman said: "These are the newest patterns, you will notice the edge runs around the border and that the center is in the middle.' Girls — "Dear me, yes. Let us take a half dozen of these." 122 THE McKENDREAN Xaturally Lillian Growdy was excited because Nolting was going to carry her suitcase. She asked in a flurry, "Conductor, what door shall I go out of?" The conductor politely replied, "Either door ma'am. The car stops at bo'th ends." Mr. Zimmerman is blessed with an inquiring mind which is his means of developing much argumentation. He asked Wayne Whit- tenberg what made his nose so red if he didn't drink. Wayne with a little peevishness replied, "It is glowing with pride because it has kept out of other people's business. After one of her trips home Alice Henry complained of nervous feelings. Upon investigation it was found that she had eaten a chicken and everything that goes with it, besides a pie and two pounds of candy, and her nervous system had not fully recovered. Slats Stroud to Fat Stroud — "Say, Eol, how dO' you spell road — r-h-o-d, or r-o-d-e?" Rol— "K-o-w-e-d." All right, thanks. Next day, same scene, same persons. "Rol, 'how do you spell doubt?" D-o-u-t." : "Thanks, Im wrong. I had it d-o-u-g-h-t. " On a cold day Geo. Cummins stood near a radiator in the library, when Mr. Hendrix entered and kindly informed him to move as his limbs were warping. Mr. Harrington, upon being questioned as to his future occupa- tion, gave a two-fold reason for becoming a physician. First, a doc- tor is paid whether his results are good or bad, and second, because my father is an undertaker. "Was that a demonstration of phonographs?" asked the visitor. "No, that was the "perg" before a meal," was a McKendrean's reply. The long and the short of it: Butts and Rube, Stroud and Mabel. Before and after taking: Cyrena and Heslet. "Asking a girl's permission to kiss her is cowardly. It is putting the responsibility up to her," writes the McKendree Headlight. We beg to ask which is worse, to kiss a girl without asking permission or not to kiss her after asking permission. After returning from a walk with Stroud, Mable Crump said: "Mary, just look how wrinkled my waist is." McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 123 Grace Brand was warned by Mother B. not to allow Mr. White to take hold of her arm. Grace remembered that it was such a help to the conversation to have White's arms around her. It does seem that if Alice Stewart wished to demonstrate her kindly feeling toward John Harmon that she would lirst be sure ot his approval, for one day we overheard John say, because of such demonstrations, "Alice, quit that, I don't li-i-i-ke it." Mr. Whittenberg was showering comipliments on Miss Kenne- dy when she stopped him and said, "Don't tell me that, Wayne, for you won't be able to live with me, I shall be so conceited." We did not know that their case 'had become sO' serious nor that they had reached conclusions. Prof. Gentry and Mary Ball are already contemplating their sad parting next fall. They are talking seriously about the matter, and Mary has decided to come back for the summer t^rm to be with him as long as possible. 124 THE McKENDREAN McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 125 CALENDAR For School Year 1913-1914 SEPTEMBER.
