A McKENDREE SONG 

Old Alma Mater College dear, where every boy and girl, 

Each moruing wakes aud newly makes her name their prieeless pearl; 

From constant thrilLs the day distills perpetual ecstacy, 

For her we"l give — for her we'd live! Our own McKen-dre-e! 

ChoniB. 

I love every leaf of her wild old trees, 

Each blade of her virgin sod; 
I love every path as it winds with ease 

Where the aimless have one time trod. 
I love every crook, every cranny and nook; 

They are all ai lured by nie; 
The school that is worth all the schools of earth, 

L) my own Mc-Ken-dre-e. 

In buoyant youth or tranquil age our homage still the same, 
'J'lie Ijluod ul' (lid can nt'er grow cold where sounds McKendree's 

name. 
The name that lives through changing years, 
We'll give her three times three; 
Purple and white, our soul's delight, our old McKen-dre-e!

22 THE McKENDREAN 



SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 

By Ivan Moorman 

The class entered MoKeudree iu the fall of 1911. That year was 
\ery eventful. 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 fchat 
class and graciously allowed them to benetit by what it took them a 
whole year to acquire. 

When the third year began, the class was fitted individually and 
©ollectively 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 proiblems 
to pass into other hands. They have been content to direct and en- 
courage those of the class of 1915 in di.scharging these duties of minor 
note. 

But chiefly their energies have been spent in bettering the college. 
They have fhoerfully lent suggestions and dropped kindly words of 
advice 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 claiss is justly proud. 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 'highest 
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 oollege management.

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 fiorm, 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 Rob Peters you may see. 

Next I beheld a circus ring. 

With girls and clowns who dance and sing. 
And walking on a tig'ht-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 Berrj''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 ihe 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; 

The 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 rtole; 
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 me. 
Explosions there had been, you see, 

A total nervous wreck was he. 
With siorrow list^'n to liis name, 

Poor Ivan Moorman, seeking fame. 



McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 27 



Do you remember Ruby Rice, 

Tbe little girl witb chin precise, 
How sbe and Grumpy ligbtly tripped 

Tbru tango steps and uever slipped! 
Well — now I see in vaudeville, 

Tbese little maids are tripping still. 

A moment more and I descried, 

Our friend Sam Eaton, true and tried. 

T'bis man bas now quite wealtby grown, 
By wbeeling smoke from zone to zone. 

Soon I did see a woeful sight! 

A man who chewed witb 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 be wears bis life away. 
His name I learned witb 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 bad heard 

George Hogan's voice send forth that word.

34 THE McKENDREAN 



JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY 

McKeudree 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 sorrow in the land, but neither sorrow nor tears will stay 
the end, the inevitable end. 

The past three years have been the most succesisful 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 been 
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

A STORY 

It was night, 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 to^cks 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 figure, 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. 

Nciw 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 Eose 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 taunted 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.

COACH CYRUS S. 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 not, 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. 
Gentry's services this year, as 
he leaves this fall for Oxford, 
England, to study in Oxford 
University, where he holds a 
Rhode's scholarship.

Athletic Review 

The season 1913-14 'has been the most satisfactory that the Ath- 
letic Department has ever had, although the average of games won 
and lost may not be the highest. 

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 tir.st 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 repi'esented 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 lias 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 com])etition in the I. I. A. A., the strenglr' 
of the Athletic Association, the loyal and enthusiastic .supj)ort of -ttn- 
dcnts and faculty, and above all, the generally prevailing HMiletiT 
spirit are positive signs of many years of healthful activity.

THE TEAM 




Eb'bler, generally known as "sliorty," 
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 gTiards 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 passes and block- 
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 iposition. Next 
year will be his last and die 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 
scoring a single basket.

"Boots" Willi 



1 



"Boots" Willi, the little giant, and cap- 
tain-elect has played left forward for three 
years. "B'oGts' " 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 
]ioints 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 coiol head, excellent .iudg- 
ment and hard playing make him an ideal 
leader for next year. His iinassuming 
ways obtain for him the good wishes of 
(liis assocjiates. The dllinolis JWiesleyarf 
game here showed him at his best. 




Louis Pfeffer 

"Pfeff" 

Pfeffer and Loy are two small, but 
sipeedy forwards. They are both excep- 
tionally liard workers, fair shots and be- 
cause of their size and speed are extreme- 
ly hard to guard. With a little miore 
1 1 eight both of them would become stars. 
T'fcffer'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- 
tiient.

"Ferd" Friedli 

Friedli, former captain of tlie Central 
Weslej-an 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" 

\'alentine 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 
^iroved a deciding factor in several games. 
He will be remembered for winning the 
Hedding game by throwing two field bask- 
ets in as manv minutes. 



50 



THE McKENDREAN 



"Johnnie" Harmon 

llarraou, the manager, has won two M's 
ill basket ball, but this was his first year 
as a regular. His position was center af- 
ter the jump and he played that excel- 
lently for a man of his slight build. Abil- 
ity [\: cage the ball both from the field and 
on free throws is his chief asset. He scor- 
ed tlie largest mimber of points and was 
\ery good on the defense. During the last 
few games, however, he had bad luck on 
shots and his average was materially les- 
sened. The Carbondale 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 fii'st year as a regular. He 
was an excellent partner for "Boots" as 
botli can play the xloor with the best of 
flieiii. He is fast on his feet, never loafs 
a minute, and the best man on the squad 
fo break up a dribble. His shots are of 
the long distance kind. His best game was 
the exhibition contest with Tjincoln at the 
prcliininary tournament. 



McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 



51 



"Old Man" Moore 

Mioore is a guard of the Ebbler type and 
has been his understudy for the last two 
years. He is a "bear" for work; gets 
across the floor rapidly, and although 
ratlier short is the hardest man on the 
team to handle. If we did not have such 
a good back guard as Ebbler, MSoore 
would certainly prove a star. One of his 
best performances was against Hedding in 
the finals when he held Case, their crack 
forwarel to no field baskets. 



"Runt" Loy 



Pfeffer and Loy are two small, but 
speedy forwards. They are bb:th excep- 
tionally hard workers, fair shots and be- 
cause of their size and speed are extreme- 
ly hard to guard. With a little more 
lieight both of them would become stars. 
Pfeffer 's best perfonnance was against 
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 fir 
candidates was made, only two of the regulars of the previous /car 
reported. Stokes, the star center for three years and Isaacs, the hpHvy 
scoring forward, had graduated, while Beedle, out 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 Coach 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 lump 
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 tenn opened witli a game against Washington U. on 
their home floor. This was the first "classy" team which had been 
played and onr boys showed their ability by forcing Washington to 
extend themselves to win by a small score. The Hedding game which 



McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 53 

followed was the most thrilling contest that was staged during the 
year. The teams were evenly matched and after forty minutes of hard 
battling the score was a tie. Two extra periods were iplayed 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 opportunity 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 
off with the game. 

This victory and the one against Company K two nights later 
I'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 wonderfully 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 Uli- 



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 contes't 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 shot 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.

1914. 



The prospects for a winning team this year are very bright. 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, Eichter, Shields, and Harmon 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-

TRACK. 

The track team of 1913 bettered the 
records which previous teams have 
made. Three meets were participated in 
aud a creditable showing was made at 
Peoria. 

8hurtl.eff, C. B. C, and Central Wes- 
leyan were defeated 56-42, 51-50, and 
10-11 respectively. The team ^placed 
fifth at Peoria by taking 10 1-2 points. 
Beedle wion the running broad jump and 
tied for third in the ininning high. Eat- 
on was iirst in the pole vault. 

The work of Beedle wias especially 
biilliant 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. MoCor- 
niack, who improved wonderfully, Wal- 
rath and Campbell were other capable 
distance men. 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 athlet 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, MeCormack, Vogelsang, 
Shields, Moore, Campbell and Bundy are showing well and will un-

THE McKENDREAN 




i^ •- THE CONSERVATORY 

Piano Department 

McKendree t'oiiservatory is luiw a I'ccoiiiiizcHl school of music. 
Not only are the recitals being watched with great interest by the en- 
tire conimunity, but everywhere its course of study is being comment- 
ed upon favoral)ly. This course now requires six terms of hannony; 
three each of counterpoint, ear training, history of music, one of en- 
semble i)laying, one of analysis, and a recital. 

During the i)ast year there were twenty-two recitals, which showed 
the progi'css of tlie students to be I'emarkable. Only a few years ago, 
it was unusual to hear a recital, especially from memory. Now, it is 
taken for granted that each jnipi] has technical ability, and also a 
good memory. 'I'lie seven Puipil's Recitals this year were models of 
\rhat recitals should be. The average attendance was about four hun- 
dred. Evidently there is something in the training of the pupils that 
appeals strf)ngly to the public for it is |)ractically the same audience 
at each recital. The programs wci-c always interesting, doubly so 
because eafli Tinrnbcr was iK'rf'ormcd froni mcniory. So thorough was 
the work witli f'lic students in metnorizing 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 penneating 
all of Southern Illinois. This is largely due to the strong ipersonality 
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- 
signiiicance 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. 

Post-Graduates in Voice, 1914 — Webb, Bertha, Ewing; Alexander, 
Florence, Belleville. 

1914 Graduates in Public School Music — Alexander, Florence, 
Belleville; Gibbes, Ella E., Okawville; Shafer, Fern, Carlyle; Webb, 
Bertha, Ewing.

Violin Department 



Thie school year 1913-1914 has been a most successful one in the 
Violin Department of McKendree College. 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 — Eoland 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.

COOKING LABORATORY 



Home Economics 



This department was installed into the college in the fall of 1910. 
The work was at first handicapped for lack of proper housing and 
equipment. But in the fall of 1911 three iiooms remodeled and fully 
equijjped 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 instruction 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.

MANSFIELD DRAMATIC CLUB 



Elxpression Department 



McKendree's Expression Department opened in the year 1909, 
with Miss Klioda Brockman of East St. Louis as instructor. Miss 
Brockman was succeeded by Mrs. A. C Bancroft, with Miss Marion 
MtOay following lier. Tlie 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 scliools of oratorj' in the country and 
is making it possible for McKendree to continue furnishing public life 
with successful public speakers.

The Mansfield Dramatic Club 

McKendree folks iu particular and Lebanon people in general are 
fond of the right so^rt of amusements. There are many reasons for 
having a dramatic club at McKendree, iirst, to furnish the people 
clean, wholesome 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; seoand, for the 
purpose of studying the classics in drama, which, in themselves fui'nish 
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 on« 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 DRAMATIC CLUB. They chose for tlieir 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. Gentrj'.

Art Department 



The Department of Art was organized in tbe year 1912 by Misa 
Sara Seabrook. She was succeeded by Miss Mary E. Copen'haver, 
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 protper and 
students are now receiving College credit. Thorough courses are of- 
fered in drawing and painting in the different mediums, oil, watei 
color, pastel, pen and ink, leather, china and metal — these courses are 
regularly graded and lead to a diploma. Practice in making color 
combinations and a study of the treatment of color harmony in the 
house is taught to correlate with the House Economics 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 
supiport.

The needs of the student desiring to become a practical farmer are 
completely supplied in McKendree's Agriculture Department. This 
department, imder 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. Crosthwait is thorough- 
ly practical and scientific. Since this department so fully satisfies 
the demand for the best in AgTiculture, it is safe to predict a glowing 
future for the "Ag" Department.

Each program consisted of several musical numbers, a reading or

Philosophian Society 

1914 

1837 

Philo is the oldest literary society in the oldest college west of the 
•Uleo'henv Mountains. This ^vould not be very much of a distinction 
if it^iistorv was not an honorable one. McKendree College is one ot 
the oldest oolle-es in Methodism today, and her record is not equaled 
bv anv colleger 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 F-ta- 
losophiau Literary Society has had a very considerable part. On the 
pa-e-^ of Phrto's records are found the names of very many of the 
.rreatest men that went out from McKendree College. In every line 
of activitv, religious, social and business, may be found the names of 
Philos, who are gaining fame from their profession and for them- 
selves Philo is justlv proud of the many men who have gone in the 
past and are now going, out fn.m hor 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 mav be likened to a manufacturing plant. Philo takes in 
the rough material-untrained, inexperienced, self-conscious boys froni 
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 develo.-- 
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 tliat after he has gone through the 
traits worked nut and the good developed; quiet, self-possessed, con 
scious of his power, a refined product. 

Philo points with pride to the many men who have gone out from 
the society which believes and teaches that success com«s to "the 
more worthy."

The Uses of Less 

It IS useless to try to enumerate now, tlie uses of less, and I do not 
know liow; but I know tliat the aimless can never be blameless, for 
tliey've countless opportunities 'neath a flag that's so stainless. The 
iH)untry we live in can nevcn- be hopeless, altho we know that our na- 
tion is hoitelcss; for unless you are listless or thotless, or wiltless, you'll 
see in some eases 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 dnstless 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 
cranklcss 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 corn and stingless bees, 
spineless cacti covered with leaves, and saloonless towns that are free 
from dnmks are hoped for along with stinkless skunks. But the 
sriuallless baby and the barkless dog, the gmntless pig and the croak- 
les.s 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 and our campus is not treeless, onr classes are 
not colorless and mir dorm is not B-less, and a satisfied student in a 
tobar-coless .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 no 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 beres 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 
mv 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.

Thanksgiving at Carnegie Hall 

The (oix had .-I'ttliHl lazily upon Cariu'g'ie Hall 

So lliirk with glojiu we scarci' rould see old Koeitation's walls. 
Tho tives like i^iaut skeletons arrayed in misty gray, 

Stretehed I'orth their shadowy hands toward the tardy dawn of 
day. 

At li\e, Kaltih (Jehr did hustle nut the kitchen lire to make, 
(liis i;oini;' home to dine on Turk' was only just a fake.) 

T!ie villian, Taylor, as you know, must have a holiday 

After the effort he put forth in that eharming little play. 

And so the day began to dawn, this gray Thanksgiving morn. 

Xo gun was tired, no bell was rung,no blast ujion the horn. 
On each and all, as he awoke,, a solemn stillness fell, 

For what the ihiy woidd shadow foi'th no nuu'tal man could tell. 

The ct.w-bell tinkled merrily within the sacred halls. 

The boys eanie tuiidiling down the stairs but with no fatal falls. 
'J'liey mot the girls, who solemidy came forth to Pearson Hall. 

So sweetly frosh, and thankl'id to liear that cow-bell call. 

'i'he breakfast tliere was surely line and we were truly grateful. 

P)Ut dinner was ujion our minds, we couldn't be forg''etful 
Of all those wondrous \iands our liDiiiefolks were concocting, 

W hile little imjis of ennui on our hearts were pirouetting. 

Tlie ser\ire at the ehni-eli was fine, the sermon grand and noble, 
The music swi ct ami I'mII of joy soon banislied thots of trouble. 

Then in the solemn, tliankrnl imnid, with sunshine all a])0ut us. 
Within our sonls and in liie air, we wander<Ml thru tlie campus. 

I'ai-k fo tlo' dnrm we slowly canie wilh linnger gnawing frantic. 

f^.ut when we heard fliaf dinner bell 'twas good to see the antics 
Of dafipf'r boys in lirand m-w suit-, in which they looked (piite dandy; 

And others with new ties and pins which some hail left out handy. 



McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 99 

We decided on a program to be rendered in tiie eve, 

We'd gather prompt, in dear Clark Hall and stunts we'd freely 

give. 
N'ow Bishop Smith, the leader, is a smartly pi'ojjer 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 tine as you will hear 

Upon the stage prcfessional in lands both far and near. 

Our program will include the girls, but we don't know their talents. 
This truth is snre, 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 ont 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. — T. S. M.

There are lasses on the market

Some are found in every family 

Some are made in New Orleans. 
But the lasses we'll be loving 

When our heads with silver grays, 
Are the lassies of McKendree 

And the dear old College Days. 

Wlien 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 

Why 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 

Aud we in Kden fell 
'Twas too miioh ajiple tempted him 

And us — No need to tell, 
Which lasses think vou now of blame 

The greater sihare should take 
The ones that gave us hearts disease 

Or made our stomachs ache. 

In that queer and quiet fiiture 

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.

1. Thou shalt have no other Boss before me. 

2. Thou shalt not take my name in vain. 

3. Eemember 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 thee. 

5. Thou shalt not east 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 maj^ know if thou art absent from the class. 

7. Thou shalt not lie, for a lie is an abomination in the sight of 
the Faculty, but a verj' present help in time of trouble. 

8. Thou shalt not bear false witnesses for thy neighbor. 

9. Thou shalt not put a Yale lock upon thy door and keep the 
key thereof, that the Matron may not be hindered from entering thy 
place of abode and finding thy bed unmade. . . 

10. Thou shalt cut neither the Campus, nor thy class, nor the

It Happened This Way. 

Ebbler asked "Baby" Walker in yeaniing, 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. 

"Xo, darling," Pearl whispered, "I'll take the ring now. Let my 
birthday bring its happy surprises just as usual." 

First Club Member iaam])ling beverages with appreciation — 
"Beally 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 "Eice. " 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. 

And 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?" infjuired the friend, "TIterc's no niglit there," replied 
Pat. 

Ag. Engineering; Wait — "What do they make tliose long leather 
belts out of?" 

Brewhaker — ' ' Giraffe necks. ' ' 

Prof. Crosthwait — "Then I suppose thoy make nd)ber belts out 
of rubber neck.s."

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 '11 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 ohapel) — "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, tilled 
his jug and returned hume, 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 sipent the remainder of that cold February night. 

Walking ads for the dining-hall — ^Cyrene Shattgen, Fattie Stroud,

Mr. "Warren mu>i have thought that Alice Stewart had refonncd. 
At least she should feel highly honored. You know what we mean, Alice. 

Miss Brainard has been studying "beauty hints" and inquiring 
liow to improve her looks in general. But when we saw that she was 
sitting near Prof. Xew at the table, the mystery was solved. She 
even pursues that poor mau 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 woulil 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. Pevis — "Miss Pall, have you been out this evening!" 

Mary — "No, not since I've been in." 

Mr. Deffenbaugli 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 (Jreek, when 'he came to the expres- 
sion, "beasts of burden." In his excitement he said "bursts of beaden." 

Mr. Hesh'l has lieen heard to remark that he is surprised tO' hear 
himself called a "sissy." 

Mr. Gates (i|icnly .idniitled Ids admiration for Miss Brainard. He 
twisted and squirmed that he might feast his eyes upon her. In fact, 
he left school because he bad become cross-eyed from twisting bis 
head .so niueli. His sui)reinie moment of delight, however, was when 
he managed to get a glimpse of her lovely brown eyes.

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

Girls — "Dear me, yes. Let us take a half dozen of these."

Xatiirally Lillian Gowdy was excited because Nolting was going 
to carry her suitcase. She asked in a flurry, "Conductor, what door 
shall 1 go out of?" The conductor politely replied, "Either door 
ma'am. The oar stops at both ends." 

Mr. Zimaiermau is blessed with an inquiring mind which is his 
means of developing much argumentation. lie 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 n^^rvous system had not fully I'ecovered. 

Slats Stroud to Fat Stroud — "Say, l\ol, how dO' you spell road — 
r-h-o-d, or r-o-d-e?" 

Rol— "E-o-w-e-d." 

All right, thanks. 

Next day, same scene, same persons. 

"Rol, 'how do you spell doubt f" 

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,

Mr. Harrington, upon being questioned as to his future occupa-

my father is an undertaker. 

"Was that a demonstration of phonographs?" asked the visitor.

"Asking a girl's permission to kiss her is cowardly. Tt is putting 
the resiwnsibility up to her," writes the McKendree Headlight. We 
beg to ask wliicli 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."

Grace Brand was warned by Mother B. not to allow Mr. White 
to take hold oi 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 first be sure of 
Ms 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 term to be with him 
as long as possible.
