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!
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.

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-
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
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.
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 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
with our footsteps, the Prof's, will cease to be astonished at our 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 sipring 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 conlict.
McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 35
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.

46 THE McKENDREAN
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.
McKENDREE YEAR BOOK
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, 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.
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-
McKENDREE YEAR BOOK
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.
\'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.
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.
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
McKENDREE YEAR BOOK
"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.
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
52 THE McKENDREAN
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
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
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.

i^ •- THE CONSERVATORY
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.
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
A Gold Medal Contest is held each year in which each contestant

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.

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,

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-

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
The studio is a large, well lighted room, which is equipped with
excellent studies in cast and still life subjects. Recently Rev. L. C.

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

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

94 THE McKENDREAN
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.

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

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
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;

Ralph Gehr can play the violin with grace and animation,
And sing with purity of tones that calls for an ovation.

But Carson has an invite, so his reading will be missed. - '

There are lasses on the market
In their tins and in their teens,
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.

And us — No need to tell,

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.

116 THE McKENDREAN
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
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,
Fattie Shields, Deacon Phillippi.
Taylor and Heslet are doing fine work this year— among the girls.
Prof. Thrall— "Mr. Trautman what is the plural of "I".
Mr. Trautman — "You."

Things heard in the Aless Hall:
Pass the Ciuni.

Country butter today?
Eat tliis or we'll get it next meal.
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-
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
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-

McCreery — "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
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.

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-

"Asking a girl's permission to kiss her is cowardly. Tt is putting

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-

McKENDREE YEAR BOOK 135
The following business men and
patrons of the college are worthy of the
highest consideration by the student
body. They have wisely seen fit to
place their advertising in our year
book^ and in doing so they have mater-
ially assisted us and we trust that they
will be given preference over others
when opportunity is afforded. They
are progressive business men who will
deal squarely and courteously with
the students and town people.
