Behold, a voice came unto me. saying, "Write." And I said, "O ! Mighty 
one, what shall I write?" And the voice said unto me. "Write the history of 
the Seniors, for the good that men do shall live after them." 

And it came to pass that in the eighty-seventh year of McKendree, the 
class of nineteen nineteen reached the Land of Promise, the campus of the 
college. And there were many giants dwelling within walled rooms; they 
were awful and formidable, and the class of nineteen nineteen were sore 
afraid. They said unto each other. "How shall we draw nigh unto these 
professors? How shall we survive the terrors of registration?" In fear and 
trembling they passed through the ordeal and remained in the Land of 
Promise. 

In the same year the noble P>o\ver began to reign and he ruled with great 
wisdom and did that which was pleasing in the sight of his classmates. And 
nineteen nineten abode in peace, and sought wisdom and obtained prosperity. 

In the second year, Bovver, the noble, reigned no more and Chapman, the 
Hoosier, ruled in his stead. And lo. the sophomores rose early and were 
zealous in the pursuit of pleasure. And their neighbors above them and below 
them were greatly troubled. 

And the third year Chapman continued to reign and they waxed mighty. 
There arose in the land an awful conflict and the Freshmen struggled against 
the Sophomores. Then nineteen nineteen came unto them and aided them 
against the Sophomores and the Seniors who were banded together against 
the Freshmen. And the righteous cause of the Juniors and Freshmen was 
triumphant. In the same year many of the class of nineteen nineteen went 
forth to the Great World War, and they did not return, while the class dwelt 
in the Land of Promise. 

In the fourth year of their sojourn the class of nineteen nineteen sought 
Dolley. a mighty man and strong, to rule over them. He was wise and good 
and reigned judiciously among them. 

And the deeds of nineteen nineteen are many and their wisdom is great. 
Come unto them, ye who thirst for knowledge, ve who long for edification of 
the soul, ye who would learn of the mysteries of science, for, truly, they have 
sought diligently after knowledge and have become wondrous wise. 

So endeth the works of the Senior Class and their fame shall continue 
forever. AVIS SPRAGG.

< >n one of my trips to a large high school where 1 was to make an 
address. 1 was instantly attracted by the title. "Successes of '19," because I 
was a member of the class of 1910 of McKendree College. First I was sur- 
prised by seeing my "Id class seated before the platform of McKendree ('al- 
lege chapel, listening to the commencement address. First was shown the 
success that a McKendrean had achieved in the world of science. Dr. Neva 
Skelton was shown as she worked in one of St Louis' largest hospitals. This 
was not so surprising for she was already widely known because of her skill, 
and recent scientific discoveries she had made. 

Immediately following was a picture of myself in my chemical laboratory 
in New York at my daily work I then recalled the presence on a particular 
day of a camera man in my laboratory, whom, in my preoccupation, I had 
scarcely noticed. 

The next scene was that of a conference of Methodist ministers. The 
dignified personage who ^eemed to be speaking was none other than our old 
classmate, now Bishop, Thomas E. Harper. 

The scene shifted rapidly to the perfectly appointed library of a beautiful 
home in Belleville. I was not surprised when 1 saw Mrs. V. L. Gould, w h mi 
1 had known as Ella Lippert. 

Again a magnificent laboratory scene confronted me. I felt proud for 
old McKendree when 1 recognized the'ehemist in charge of Jim Doibley, our 
old class president. 

The next scene was that of a girls' college in California, f recognized 
Lucile Whitaker as head, directing the work of a large class in the domestic 
science department. 

Next I saw a large class of men and women receiving their Ph. D degrees. 
As I watched them f saw the familiar face of Avis Spragg. That old verse 
came to my mind, 

"And still the wonder grew. 
How one small head could carry all she knew." 
Then came the last picture. In the private office in a large Y. AT. C. A. 
building a man of small stature was busily engaged dictating to a 
stenographer. This could be none other than our old "Cuddy" Chapman. 
The plans of his youth had been brought to fruition. 

Thus. I once more came into contact with my old class and happy 
memories of old McKendree filled my mind. "191!)" was indeed typical of the 
success which is achieved l>v McKendreans,

A Irram 



"Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow A Senior's but a walking 

shadow, a poor player that .struts and frets his hour upon the stage." I was 
thinking in terms of the future and failed to notice how I was perverting 
these famous old lines to acord with my thought. I was thinking how near 
to a close the Seniors hour drew, when he would step forth into a wider 
• mtlook of life and that when I was made a Senior my hour would begin. 
I began to speculate on what the future had in store for my class. 

Day dreams are conductive to sleep, especially if they happen to intrude 
themselves into a legitimate study hour. My French hook slipped from my 
hand to the floor, and presently I found myself seated on a rough pallet of 
straw, with a heavy hall and chain on my foot. So this was what I had come 
to! I looked up, and saw my keeper, a strange creature, reminding me of 
Father Time. "Your hour is almost up." said he. in tones inspiring me with 
horror. "If there is anything you wish done for you. make it known quickly." 

I gaze as if fascinated at some object he held. "What is that?" 1 cried. 
pointing a shaking finger at it. 

"Do you still ask such trivial questions when I have warned you that the 
sands are sinking fast?" 

"< >, tell me, then, how came I here and who. indeed, am I?" 

"Poor creature." murmured he. "you are indeed far gone. You came here 
because you lived always in the future, neglecting opportunities. Your haste 
has brought you to the verge of disaster, premature annihilation. Here, I am 
si >rrv fi >'" yi iu." 

Returning a few grain> of sand to the upper half of the hour-glass he 
resumed. 

"Let me tell you a bit of your history. It also involves that of numerous 
others, lor before you lapsed into your present fortune your interests were 
at one with your fellows." 

I felt reassured to find that 1 had any kind of history, and listened eagerly 
to the words which followed. 

"In the fall of the year 1916, you were one of a band of fifty who left 
their homes in search of adventure, knowledge, freedom and whatnot. Some 
magnetic power drew you to the city of the seven hills among the cedars of 
Lebanon, and soon you found yourselves in pursuit of the will-o'-the-wisp 
called knowledge. To some of you this was a congenial occupation. Rut be- 



fore the year had passed others were languishing for the green pastures from 
which thev were up-rooted. Doubtless some found a world in which the 
order of the day was work, the principal diet bread and gum, and the only 
pastime supervised play, too strenuous for their pampered tastes, and they 
returned home thoroughly disillusioned. Many of you, however, enjoyed 
yourselves greatly, as is shown by the interest you found in showing yours- 
selves a good time, even at the cost of ridicule from the natural enemies by 
whom you were surrounded, the 'swell-heads,' 'sore-heads.' 'bold-heads' and 
'cabbage-heads,' as you called your upperclassmen and the faculty. You won 
for yourselves great notoriety by your aggressive spirit in organizing, taking 
precedence over the others in the matter of sidewalks and chapel decoration. 

"Thus passed with joy, tempered by experience, the first year of your 
sojourn away from home. The following year many of you came back, al- 
though o large number found it desirable to seek new fields to conquer. < (thers 
Stepped immediately into man's estate, and joined a more real and difficult 
conflict than the rest of you waged. You became more conservative this 
year. Having learned better, you no longer' designated those about you in 
terms of 'head-ship,' because you felt you had truly made a 'bone-head' in this 
respect the year before. This year also passed peaceably and happily, save 
for .me incident. In trying to conclude a treaty of friendship with the Seniors 
because they carried more authority than the others, you aroused the jealousy 
of your immediate neighbors on both sides, who declared themselves eternally 
at enmity toward you, and the battle was fought then and there, ending in 
a truce. Then followed a year, the most triumphant of your career, which 
has ended disastrously for you alone. Your ranks were much depleted, due to 
the stern sense of duty that led some into their immediate life careers, or into 
what they considered a wider field of learning. Your little but bighty band 
was headed by big, athletic, good-natured Ben. Then literary, happy-go-lucky, 
funny Becky, impulsive twins in close proximity; then studious, serious, 
base-ball Young. Next came mild, weighty Hendrix, with his clever imita- 
tions; round-faced, inquiring, talkative 'Dutch' followed along, with your own 
pre-occupied, day-dreaming face bringing up the rear. 

"Your mates have struggled manfully against fearful odds, and are 
promising themselves the complete fulfillment next year of their ambitions, 
formed during their three years' sojourn on the hill. As for you — " Ik- 
paused as the last grain slid down the narrow-throated g'ass, and 1 trembled 
so that the chains with which I was bound clanged harshly on the floor. 

Presently I opened my eyes and gazed sheepishly into the face of my 
room-mate, who said that the last call for dinner had been sounded. 1 
glanced at the floor and there I saw in a new light the sufferings of Jean 
Yaljean. as pictured by Victor Hugo, in my French book, lying open on the 



floor.

McKendree is a Christian college. There is a department of English 
Bible, where not only Bible history and doctrine are taught, but also practical 
religious questions are discussed and many religious difficulties aru 
cleared up. 

Almost a score of young men among this year's students are preachers, 
or at least preparing fur the ministry. The majority of these hold student 
charges. These, like the \vell-kn«)\\n character in the hook of Ruth. "Go out 
full" every Saturday or Sunday, and "Come back empty" every Sunday 
night about the time the lights go out, <>r too late fur the first class Monday 
morning, having relieved their minds of voluminous charges of religious dyna- 
mite, and having gotten much theological oratory out of their systems. They 
suggest the old proverb, for even if they d<> not always "practice what they 
preach." they at least practice preaching. 

Tin Y. M. C. A. and Y. XL C. A. both have nourishing organizations. 
That they are alive t<> the interests of their fellow men is evident not only 
by the religious meetings they hold, hut by their patriotic offerings to the 
United War Work Fund, to which the students and faculty contributed $470 
as a result of the campaign last fall. 

The Y. M. C. A. now occupies pleasant quarters in the basement of the 
new library building. They have sent' delegates to several conventions dur- 
ing the year. Charles Johnston and Professor Stokes were the representa- 
tives at the Bloomington conference, and A. W. Hendrix and S. I'. Young, at 
the conference held at Northwestern College at Naperville. The present 
officers of the association are president, S. P. Young: vice president. A. W. 
Hendrix; secretary, M. P. Akers ; treasurer. L. J. East. 

The Y. \Y. C. A is also active, and includes in its membership almost 
every girl in college, as well as the lady members of the faculty. Almost the 
whole cabinet and their faculty adviser. Miss Doubt, attended a "Y" con- 
ference of four colleges which was recently held at Shurtleff College. Alton. 
When they initiated the new officers thev held a real banquet all their own.

LITERARY 




JHatnnian Hiterary i>orirty, 1H40-1019 



The Platonian Literary Society opened her doors to begin her regular 
literary work for the season on Friday night, September 27, L918. At this 
time twelve of the old members greeted each other in Plato Hall. Thirty-one 
new fellows joined the society through the year. 

The society lias moved along through the year, holding its regular meet- 
ings without a break, except at the time when the school was closed on ac- 
count of the influenza. Besides the regular programs we have had some 
special occasions. On November 9, the society had a social gathering in the 
hall, and after music and games, refreshments were served. The evening 
of February 21, a Washington-Lincoln program was given. On Wednesday 
evening, April 30, a memorial service for the hoys who died in the great 
war was held. This also celebrated the seventieth anniversary of the found- 
ing of the s< iciety. 

Two i.if the original sixteen founders of Plato have died during the 
year, Captain H. C. Fike and George W. Caldwell. We have especially 
missed the annual visit of Captain hike this year, hut as he had been in poor 
health for some time he was unable to come at the usual occasion of his 
visits. 

Plato has a large silk service flag, containing sixty-two stars, three of 
which are gold. The gold stars represent haul S. Dee and Clyde Pavey, who 
died in camp, and Lieutenant Hershel Tritt. who made the supreme =c rifice 
in action in France. Plato is proud of these men. ami while she feels the 
tenderest sympathy for the families aid friends, she is proud to have been 
assi iciated with them. 

Plato takes great pride in the achievements of her sons: A. (' Pernav. 
world-wide physician and surgeon: Kelson S. Cobleigh, eminent j' r -'it: 
Hon. J. H. Wilson, who was seci nd in command of the Am rican frn n • in 
the Boxer uprisings; Hon. J. A. Halderman. first United Stai s mi ister l > 
Siam ; C. E. Johnsi n, e--< 'overnor of Missouri; Wesley Mcrr'tt major gen-

The Clionian Literary Societ) was organized by fourteen young womea 
on December 6, 1869, during tlie first term that women were permitted to 
attend McKendree. They adopted a constitution and a motto, "Jure Davinis," 
which was later changed to "Virtute et Lahore." The scene of the organiza- 
tion was sucessfully reproduced in appropriate costume at the historical 
pageant given on the night of May 1. 1919. Although the membership this 
year is small in comparison to that of other years, yet it makes up in spirit 
and quality what it lacks in numbers. 

At the beginning of the school year the numbers of Clio entertained 
the new girls at a "Backward Party." As a mid-year exhibition, Clio gave 
a play entitled. "Her Son's Sweetheart." Later they reproduced it for the 
benefit of the Dewey Avenue Church at Granite City, where it was well re- 
ceived. Another public exhibition will "he given in June. In the annual 
V. M. C. A. stunt show this year, Clio was awardrl second place for her 
presentation of "Major and Company." Last year the society won fir-t place 
with a "Red Cross Work Room" scene. 

The society has had no annual barquct this year, but will have iTe tri- 
ennial banquet <>n June 12, which pn mi>cs t < • be a big social event. The an- 
nual banquet of L-*1s was unique in that as a war measure the society voted 
that girls should in t receive flowers to wear 

Luring the war Clio entered actively into the work "I" the various insti- 
tutions asking for help. The society pledged and paid fifty-five ■'"ILrs to 
the United War YVo'k Fund. The girls also worked at least one hour each 
week on surgical dressings curirg the s| riii" of 19T\ many o f t v, m • implet- 
ing the course offered in this work. The same spirit that carried Clio through 
the period of war -till prevails, and loyalty and enthusiasm characterize a'l 
the woik of the society.

The Philosophian Literary Society has the distinction of being the oldest 
literary organization west of the Allegheny Mountains. She has the proud 
record of eighty-two years, that is unexcelled by that of any similar organi- 
zation in the country, having been organized January 10, 1837. 

In 1849 Philo's representation in the Illinois Legislature began with 
the election of Hon. Edward Abend of Belleville. From this time on Philo 
has had her representation in every session except two of the general as- 
semblies of Illinois. From the year ISfiS there has been but one session of 
Congress that has been without its Philo member or numbers in cither the 
Senate or House of Representatives, lion. Charles S. Zane, who. as chief 
justice of Utah, handed down the first decision which sounded the death knell 
of polygamy, was a Philo. Hon. John Maker, congressman of Illinois and 
minister to Venezuela; Brig.-Gen. Jess 11. Moore member of Congress ami 
consul general to Peru; Hon Rluford Wilson, solicitor o~ the (J S. Treasury.

Professor Stokes is a McKendree 
graduate, class of 1913. He spent 
the following year at Illinois Uni- 
versity, and since then has been 
servjeing as athletic director in dif- 
ferent high schools. He was elect- 
ed professor of mathematics and 
athletic director at McKendree in 
the fall of 1918, coming from Mount 
Carmel Township High School. 

As a McKendree student Profes- 
sor Stokes was one of the most 
popular men in school, and his popu- 
larity has not diminished since he 
has become an instructor. His 
basket-ball experience as a Mc- 
Kendree player has fitted him ad- 
mirably for a basketball coach. 

Professor Stokes is very popular 
with the students on account of his 
sterling character and his absolute 
fairness to all. It is to be hoped 
that he will return next year, and 
enjoy even greater success than he 
has had this year. 



"Fritz" Friedli, who coached last 
year's winning basket-ball team, 
responded to Professor Baker's 
emergency appeal to coach the 
team during Coach Stoke's sickness 
with all the loyalty of a true Mc- 
Kendree m».n. He came over from 
Belleville three nights a week and 
got the team back into its fighting 
form after the slump which fol- 
lowed Stoke's sickness. Fritz has 
a knack of putting more pep into 
a team just before a game than they 
can hold and he deserves a great 
deal of credit for winning some of 
our hardest games. 




Fritz Wagener came to McKen- 
dree from Trenton High School and 
had little difficulty in making good 
in collegiate athletics in his first 
year. He is short, but heavy-set 
and built perfectly. His speed on 
the floor fits him for the running 
guard position, and he and Dolley 
work together admirably on the 
left side of the floor. He has start- 
ed out his college career well by 
making the all-star minor division 
team and is certain of winning 
greater honors in later years. His 
best games were against Carbon- 
dale at Lebanon, Cape Girardeau at 
the Cape, and Illinois College at 
Lebanon. 



Captain Dolley, better known as 
"Jimmie," piloted the McKendree 
five through a very successful sea- 
son. He has been a member of the 
team for the last two years, and 
has a wonderful record for these 
two seasons. He was high point 
getter for the team during the last 
year and set a new college record 
for individual scoring. He is an 
all-round athlete and will be great- 
ly missed in football and baseball 
as well. Jim expects to coach ath- 
letics in some high school next 
year and the whole school joins in 
wishing him the best of success in 
the coming season. 

By FRITZ WAGENER. 








BENNY HALL. 
Benny Hall played his first year 
in collegiate basket-ball a] bad 
guard, and filled Waldo Miller's 
shoes very acceptably. He has had 
some high school experience, but 
had never found his real place on 
a bat feet-ball team until this year. 
He has an ideal build for a back 
guard, and sufficient weight to 
stand any amount of roughness. He 
has a good head and lets very few 
plays get by him. His best game 
was against St. Louis University at 
Lebanon. 



HAROLD SENEFF. 
"Snek" Seneff came out tor tin- 
basket-ball team from the first prac- 
tice to last and certainly earned his 
position on the squad. He is a very 
capable guard ar.'d ( mid b 
ed upon to take Hall's pli 
scarcely a hitch in the team play. 
His greatest nsset is his ag n 
playing With another yi a 
peripnoe, he should (levc-lin !n:n :i 
star, as he is pi rfectly buill for a 
back guard and also has a /bSod 
basket ball head. His best game 
was against Scott Field at Lebanon 




GOBSY YOHE.

for the second term, coming from 
the Illinois U. Naval Training Un.'l

Baseball has never had the popularity and support that basket ball has 
enjoyed, chiefly because the baseball trams have never had the success that 
the basket ball teams have had. It has been only lately that our baseball team 
has left a winning record. 

This spring, when the baseball call was made, only four of last year's 
team reported. However, all four were infielders, so the L918 infield is intact 
again this spring. Also a half dozen experienced players reported and the 
team looks much stronger than last year's team. 

The pitchers this vear are Wagener, Doeblin and Yohe. All three arc 
fair pitchers and have had some experience. Wagener is the only left hander 
of the trio and he will probably bear the pitching burden of the season. The 

catcher's position looked doubtful at first, but now we have as g 1 a catcher 

as McKendree ever had in Yohe. "Gob" has had some previous experience 

as catcher and has fitted into harness nicely, lie has a good arm, and a g 1 

head and handles his pt'icher beautifully. As substitute catcher we have Ball, 
who promises to develop into a real catcher with a little more experience. 

At first base McKendree has the best man that she has ever had in 
"Brick" Braun. He is short, and throws left-handed, but is a wonder at get- 
ting bail throws at first. He hits in the cleanup position and is always a dan- 
gerous batter. "Sprig" Young holds down second base and is a clever fielder 
and a fair hitter, lie and East, the sh,,rt stop, work together perfectly around 
the keystone bat;. East is one of the -urest fielding short -tops that McKen- 
dree has ever had. Mis pegging is perfect, and at bat he is always dangerous. 
Dolley, at third, completes an exceptionjfly fast infield. Dolley is the only 
member of the infield that hits from the left side of the plate, and is a fair 
hitter. His speed makes him a very capable lead-off man. Altogether the 
infield is well balanced and fast. 

In the outfield we have a number of capable men, among them Doeblin, 
Wagener, Cover, Seneff and Ball. Wagener plays left field when he is not 
pitching, and is a fast, sure fielder Seneff is a reliable fielder and a heavy 
hitter, lie is a dangerous latter at all times. Doeblin p'ays left field when 
he is not pitching, and can always be counted on. Cover holds down center 
field and is about the surest man on fly balls on the team, lie hits from the 
left side of the plate ai d can be counted on for at least a Texas I. earner every 
game. Ball, Catt and Hall are a trio of substitutes who can take their place 
in tlie lineup with scarce'.y a hitch in the team play.

< >1.1 McKendree eagerly embraced the opportunity, offered by the national 
government in the late weeks of 1!M8. of devoting her plant and resources to 
the war department under the Student Army Training Corps plan. The offer 
was in it only an opportunity for the college to "do her bit," but was also to 
McKendree. as to most other small colleges, a veritable life-saver in the mat- 
ter of attendance. Through the year 1917-18 boys were dropping out one by 
one to join the colors — three of the faculty and many of the students had 
answered the call even earlier. 

Many of McKendree'-- sons honored themselves and their college by of- 
fering their all mi the altar of their country, and several made the supreme 
sacrifice -• nie- mi the iields of France, some in the training camps at home. 
A partial list of these men appears below. They were in practically every 
branch of service and varied in rank from "buck private" to colonel. 

The McKendree unit of the S. A. T. C. reigned supreme mi the campus 
from ( (ctober 1 t' > December 11. Three officers were assigned. Major Frank 
II. Andrus, a typical regular army man. a jovial gentleman whose personality 
was quickly felt mi the campus and about town, and two handsome and dash- 
ing young officers, Lieutenants Pruett and Howell. Carnegie Hall, and parts 
of Clark Hall and Pearson's Hall, were transformed into barracks, and ev- 
erybody ordered his movements by the sound of the bugle. Teachers and 
students alike bravely tried to be military and academic at the same time. 
and in this difficult program no one will deny that academic interest-- suffered 
somewhat. The "flu," too. did its deadly work, one member of the unit.

Cooking vs. Eating. 

Take a dinner that one of the domestic scier.ee girls fixes. The food is 
( ). K., the kitchen is clean, the cooking is done to the temperature of the 
oven, there's the proper ingredients in the food, there's the right proportion of 
water in solid foods and when all finished constitutes a good meal according 
to the dietetic standards. But to the fellow who has to eat it. the onlv ob- 
jection he's got to it. is that it tastes rotten. 

And that would be enough to give a sanitarium patients for years if all 
meals were served acording to the opinion of the dietetic experts, because 
diet experts do not eat their own meals.

Longer and harder exams installed. — Miss Pierson, Professor Thrall and 
l'n ifessi i" St> ikes. 

The students stop satirizing Professor Dolley's bald head. 

Fluff Fluff eat bread and gum. 



Fritz Wagener, while walking across the campus after the Thrall-Dolley 
campaign, was accosted with, "Saw you Patrick Henry, you didn't get Dolley. 
What are you going to do now?'' 

Frit;:, showing his teeth in a grin stretching from coast to coast, "< *h. I'm 
"Mm- to 1 )ey Now." And he did. 



The following remarks let fall by one of the ^irls in Clark Hall show how 
strenuous our life is: "It was perfect torture to get up this morning. This is 
sn hot that I'm cooked alive. I've gone craz) - :r your picture. The light 
is so poor I'm positively blind. Speak louder. I can't hear a thin'g. You didn't 
speak tc me, I'm mad for life. 1 was petrified. Her impudence make- me 
simply wild. She gives me a pain 1 can't locate. Do shut that window, I'm 
frozen stiff. I haven't had a date in a coon's age. I'm so tired I can't budge. 
My clothes are worn to shreds. I was perfectly dumb. I'm completed ex- 
hausted. It was so funny I almost died laughing. I'm simply stuffed. I've 
got the murderinest headache. That boy drives me wild. Catting till I drop. 
I nearlv had a fit. Honey, I'm just dead." And still -he lives. 



The oldest son was leaving for France. All the good-byes bad been said 
and the whole family were feeling rather badly. The small brother was more 
broken hearted than all the rest, and just as the -oblier was about to leave 
he ran to the door with his last word: "Oh, liill ; don't come back until you 
get some of those epitajhs on your shoulders. 



To prove hi w imagination can influence a person, we have the incident 
where Ray E. iJinter and Sylvia were observing the phosphorescence from 
bacteria in a dark closet. Sylvia bad the dish in her right hand when the door 
was closed. Ray thought that he could see some sort of a light in the region 
of her right hand, in fact he was sure he could. But he was wrong; the dish 
was in the left hand.

SUFFACE. 

This great production, which ha? just been brought reluctantly to a close, 
is entitled, "The McKendrean." Its classic title alone should insure its lasting 
fame as a masterpiece of accidental literature and cause it to be included in 
every collection of choice American literature. It will undoubtedly be trans- 
lated into several tongues. 

Far be it from me to offer any sort of apology for this work. It speaks 
for itself to all who are attentive to its merits ami to the defects that fail to 
appear. But lest some reader has come to the end of this volume without a 
proper sense of its real nature, its intrinsic worth, its completeness, its thought 
content, its lofty purpose and pleasing style, I shall undertake to give that 
reader some idea as to the general attitude of the public toward the work, as 
well as an understanding of the spirit in which its authors approached it. 
This will undoubtedly remove any doubt in the reader's mind as to its right 
to a high place in literature. Few of us ever have any opinion about great 
literary masterpieces until Professor Thrall expresses his; thereafter we are 
willing to publish our views of the production in the most dogmatic fashion. 
It is my purpose here to enlighten in some such way any timid reader who is 
afraid to own to himself what he thinks of it for fear of having an unpopular 
opinion on the subject. 

"The McKendrean." composed by a group of semi-bards of the most 
peculiar mental ability, is to lie placed on the place of The Iliad and The 
Odyssey, which modern criticism also asserts to have been composed by a 
number of bards with Homer probably acting as editor-in-chief. 

Among the authors of this bonk we must mention as worthy of special 
note the editor-in-chief. Miss J. F. Becky Plajery, to whom is due all the 
honor for the excellent arrangement of the book. Stedman and Hutchinson's 
Library of American Literature appends the following note about her: 
"Through her keen insight and unceasing diligence she has succeeded in ar- 
ranging the mass of material compiled by her co-adjutants into an artistic 
whole. We have no criticism to offer on her work, realizing how difficult it 
must be to reduce a great conglomeration of facts to any kind of a system." 
We must not forget another name without whose noble efforts this monu- 
mental task would have proved fruitless. We refer to Mr. D. E. Chapsuir, 
tlu- agile and faithful business manager. Critics have much to say about his 
ability in detecting prosperous looking persons, his athletic appearance and 
hustling temperament. 

All was not easy sailing in this great project, however, and the business 
manager and art editors bad many and long consultations with the editor-in- 
chief over the difficulties of the situation. The editor would wring her hands 
m despair and cry out. "O ! These slackers: how can they expect me to ar- 
range material that is never handed in?" The business manager would tear 
his hair and wail,-"\\ bv don't those students get more subscriptions, and why 
don't people bring me more ads; they can't expect me to do it all." And the 



over-worked art editor would mutter. "If only that man would come and 
paint those portraits. 1 am sick of the whole business." And so it went. Each 
edit, ir toiled and fumed and it seemed ti > iv > avail. 

When at last a day dawned when all could smile once more, confident 
that their labors were merited in the applause of others with the precious 
McKenarean ci itnpleted. 

Critics say their emotion was like that of Ague Sprague whpse eyes tilled 
with tea!'- when -lie had completed her senior thesis, which appeared recently 
in book form and was enthusiastically received. 

The material of the McKendrean may he roughly grouped under the 
subject heading Sociology. Libraries will take note of this fact and classify 
under the 300's. The contents of this hook consist of a series of articles, 
with illustrations, tables, diagrams, and ornamental appendages. The dis- 
courses deal with the psychical, physical, social, moral and scholastic develop- 
ment of humanity in modern times. For convenience this development is 
graphicalh presented in the form of an evolutionary history of a human being 
during four years of his growth, the age period being arbitrarily placed at 
from fourteen to forty-five years. A few exceptions to these ages are also 
admitted for the purpose of comparing their reactions to various methods of 
treatment. It is to he noted that all subjects are treated from a modern 
standpoint in the light of the latest scientific findings. 

I Ipmions differ as to the climax of this book. It is the author's purpose 
that this should he the case. They intended from the outset that there should 
be no high point of interest, hut that the interest of the reader should be 
mainained at white heat throughout, and that the reader on laying down the 

I. k should have much the same sensation as an inflated toy balloon 

that is suddenly pricked with a pin.. To get the full effect of this sensation 
we would advise reading this book through at a single sitting. Then if the 
interesl were lacking, exhaustion would have much the same effect. 

If any of the treats contained in this volume deserve special mention. 
let me briefly refer the reader t< i the account of the new girls' literary on 
page 2? the remarkable photograph of a S. A. T. C. man buried under four 
feet of snow, the record of a spread given in Clark Hall at H o'clock in the 
evening, and the remarkable poetic power of the description of the Clark 
Hall vesper services. 

As to the criticisms of this book, there are only two of significance. < >ne 
has been admirably and tersely put into Fluff-fluff's Twentieth Century 
Album. There is no sense in having advertisements of business people in a 
small town in Southern Illinois who through their means continue to advertise 
good* they may once have had to sell. We realize the justice of this criticism. 
We recognized all along that the ads have little literary value and therefore 
have decided to exclude them from the revised tditii n of the work, which is 
to be taken in hand immediately. From the financial standpoint it appeared at 
first expedient to include them, but if they sl-,-,!l in an\ way interfere with the 
circulation of the book they must be eliminated. 

Another criticism that has been raised a: ainst this book by superficial 
readers is that directed against the method of having a "huiniform" appendix. 
Instead, of having a touch of humor pervading the whole bonk and shining 
forth from all its pages, they say that we have relegated it all to the end where 



there is so nijuch of it that the point of a great deal of it is lost because the 
mind is surfirced with it. This method is compared with that of a farmer who 
would thinly scatter seed over a large area of ground and dump the remainder 
in oife corner of the field. This criticism reflects upon our editor-in-chief's 
ability to systematize and she has urged me to respond that the main purpose 
of the book is serious and in parts tragic, even as the career of a person is 
likelv to be in real life, and that tl - ho cannot see the humor peeping 

out here and there in the part- esp^ciallj designed and serving as relief 
scenes t< the more somber parts is a very obtuse person indeed, and one who 
should consult Prof. Thrall before airing his critical opinion.
