On these pages which follow we
have attempted to collect those
bits of school life which we
hope you will in after years re-
call with much pleasure and de-
light. If some things recorded
here make you wish for those
old days again, and some things
make you laugh because of their
absurdities; if in short, we have
succeeded in making this a veri-
table memory book of 1929, we
This, our 1929 McKendrean, we
dedicate to that indefinable atmos-
phere that down through the years
has continually lived, not only on
the campus but also in the hearts
of all true McKendreans — that
noble sentiment which binds our
hearts to our Alma Mater and
lures the alumni back to old Mc-
Kendree — that indescribable, un-
explainable something which en-
riches our lives and makes us loyal
to that which is best — that beauti-
ful McKendree Spirit.

EDWIN P. BAKER, A.B.. A.M., LL.D., DEAN
Dr. Harmon needs no introduc-
tion to either students or friends of
the school. He is known wherever
McKendree is known. Last year he
was honored by being elected district
Rotary Governor and this position
with its necessary travel has enabled
him to carry the name of the school
to still wider fields than before.
"Prexie," through a busy man has a
cheering word for everyone he meets
and is always ready to receive the
confidences of the students, and to ex-
tend to them judicious advice when-
ever needed. Dr. Harmon, an ex-
athlete is thoroughly interested in
athletics and has assisted greatly in
building up strong teams which Mc-
Kendree has furnished. Dr. Harmon,
a true son of Illinois, is one of Mc-
Kendree's greatest assets.
The mainstay of the administra-
tion department is our highly es-
teemed dean, who is an efficient
executive as well as a cordial friend
of the student body. He is the com-
mander of the German forces at Mc-
Kendree and his drills have become
famous on the campus. Dean Baker
is an enthusiastic supporter of all that
bespeaks progress for the school and
his decisions in matters of importance
bear that touch of sincerity and rea-
soning so characteristic of him. His
office is always filled with persons
desiring his counsel, but despite the
cares of his position, he still main-
tains his cheerful philosophy of life.

The Student Association consists of all regularly enrolled students at
McKendree. The Association has its official meeting each Friday at chapel
time, when matters pertaining to student life are discussed and interesting pro-
grams are presented. The chief events falling under the jurisdiction of this
august body are Homecoming and Interscholastic programs, and other affairs
more intimately related to McKendree's student activities.
MRS. MINNIE PHILLIPS
Mrs. Phillips, our House Mother and Institutional Manager, in her four
years' stay on our campus has made for herself the reputation of an efficient
and dependable woman. She is never too busy to undertake whatever task faces
her. In spite of her business-like qualities, she has a keen sense of humor which
has made for her numbers of friends.
MRS. ROSE EMERSON
The boys of Carnegie Hall now
have a mother. She came as a New
Year's present and although she has
been with us only six months, she is
now a necessary part of the institu-
tion. Carnegie Hall, so long dubbed
"The Mule Barn," has received the
touch of a woman's hand and is to-
day a more attractive home than it
ever has been. Mother Emerson is
liked by all, and her genial spirit has
pervaded the entire campus. Con-
gratulations on your work, Mrs.
MISS VERA HERRING
Our dean of women is no new fig-
ure on the campus, as she was here
for a short time last year. She comes
to us from Missouri Wesleyan, where
she served as dean of women, acquit-
ting herself very favorably. Miss
Herring is quite versatile, devoting
part of her time to her duties as li-
brarian and serving in her official
capacity as dean.

Mary Hughes, A.
Clio: President Glee CI
Adequate commendation cannot be
given to "Watt," the tall blond from
Clay City. Loy comes from a fam-
ily of great men and he has already
achieved certain heights which form
for him an enviable record. He is
the president of the senior class, an
active Platonian, a true Bachelor, a
debater, and an athlete as well. He
frequently "loses" the discus and this
year won his letter in football. As
a student Loy is also a star, for his
grades reveal the reward of persistent
and diligent study. He has given his
best to the school and will always be
a worthy alumnus.
Just remember the girl with the
friendly smile and greeting for every-
one and you have Mary. She is very
versatile and her activities cover al-
most every phase of college life. Cli-
onians will remember her as an in-
terested spectator and willing per-
former. She served as president of
this organization when she acquitted
herself very favorably. Mary is a
loyal backer of all worthy McKen-
drean activities and is, by the way,
the leader of our next year's football
captain. She is a prospective teacher
and her personality is a sure indica-
tion of her success.
Harold Culver. A.
Dorothy Helen Ikemire. A. B.
■M" Club; Tr.
Happy-go-lucky Culver; did any-
thing ever worry him.'' Have you
ever seen him excited or irritated?
Well, neither have we. Harold stars
in all phases of school activity. He
is captain of the basketball team and
excels as a hurdler in track. What
would a public function be without
Culver and Nichols? That deep bass
voice is famous and holds audiences
in rapture, whether the composition
being sung is the latest popular num-
ber or a negro spiritual. He por-
trayed Romeo in the play given last
February when he proved to be an
ardent lover and a capable actor.
Harold has passed the six-foot mark
and we know with this reach and the
qualifications which he possesses that
he will hold high the banner of the
class of '29.
The almost Puritanical calmness
and conscientiousness of Dorothy
Helen is relieved now and then by a
manifestation of her gentle and kind-
ly sense of humor. Uproariousness
and Dorothy Helen are complete
strangers. Her love of music, par-
ticularly the expression of music-
through the medium of the piano,
rounds out her daily routine of study
and the performance of the usual
every-day tasks of the student. She
not only appreciates the music pro-
duced by others — she, too, is able to
entertain delightfully in a musical
way. Her willingness to help is dem-
onstrated in the library, where she ex-
hibits her efficiency.

Did you ever see such a public
speaker as McK. has in Charlie.'' We
are justly proud of him. There is
scarcely a campus activity in which
he is not the star number. How well
do we remember the serenades of Cul-
ver and Nichols with their "uke" and
guitar. Charlie, no doubt, also re-
members the result of the jealousy of
other boys because they couldn't woo
their fair ones through the aesthetic
sense, for they threw the musician
into the pond. Always cheerful with
a ready story, he is an entertaining
companion. Proof of this lies in the
disappearance of his Alpha Mu pin.
He is our representative in the law
profession of the future.
Helene Ferrell, A. B.
csident Clark Hall '28; V. W. C. A.
Helene is another "P. K." of which
the group may well be proud. Being
a "preacher's kid" hasn't hurt Helene
any. She is an active Clionian and
has done her bit toward making the
Y. W. C. A. what it is. Besides be-
ing a conscientious student, she is a
good sport and a cheerful friend. She
sings in the glee club and is an inter-
ested member of the Education Club.
This year Helene was elected to the
presidency of Clark Hall and showed
her executive ability in directing the
annual Christmas Bazaar. She is in
the formative stage of being a school
teacher. We have no fears for your

Meet our Editor-in-Chief. A
genial leader, with an unusually
cheerful disposition, a remarkable
executive ability, and an unassuming
personality is Hake. These traits so
characteristic of him are evident in
his work as president of the Educa-
tion Club, and his activities in the
Platonian Literary Society. His sin-
cere purpose and worthy a:hieve-
ments make for him a pla:e at the
top in the ranks of the best students
on our campus. The Bachelors, too,
saw fit to give him a place in their
exclusive circle during his first year
in our midst. Success is waiting just
around the corner for him and we
know he is not far from the corner.

French Club; "As You Like It
Mae's panacea for worry and the
blues is "Laugh it off." She agrees
with the philosophy of the song-
writer who wrote, "What's the use
cf worryin'? It never was worth
while," and she does her best to help
others get rid of their low spirits in
the same manner. Mae takes a lively
interest in all outside activities in
which she is engaged. The field in
which she is particularly apt is that
of public speaking and oral inter-
pretation. Who can forget her dec-
lamations or her impersonation of
"Touchstone" in "As You Like It". ?
As for argumentation — that Mae's
favorite indoor sport. We wish she
could have found time for debate
work a little earlier in her career.

One of our most versatile class-
mates is "Steve." He stars in all
phases of school activities from early
fall until late spring. On the foot-
ball field and in track his speed and
athletic technique stand out predom-
inantly. Scholastic excellence is an-
other of his characteristics. He is an
active Platonian and Bachelor despite
the fact that he must keep the home
fires burning, for he is comparatively
a newly-wed in our midst. Steve has
served as assistant coach this year and

cided advantage. To many his new

strange, but what's in a name? Any-
way, he's "Steve" to us.
ing her entire four years at McKen-
dree she has always been an enthusi-
astic worker in everything that has
been for the good of the school. In
her senior year, desiring to put every-
thing into the home stretch, she took
her pens and pencils to live out with
the Lebanonites. She was one of the
best Y. W. C. A. presidents that
we've ever had and that's saying a
let. Whether she was needed as a
fortune teller or to train the vaude-
ville "chorus-girls," Julia was there
with all her enthusiasm and energy.
We will miss her gay little gurgle and
"stick-to-it-iveness" next year. She
is not only a real sport, but a good
student as well.

Who could ever forget "Perk" —
that inimitable man of action? He
plays stellar roles in football, track —
in fact, he is at ease in any environ-
ment. Tom plays the piano, too,
but that isn't the only way in which
he makes noise. He is a Bachelor, but
that fraternal allegiance does not pre-
vent him from shyly expressing his
preference for a certain member of the
fair sex. Perk hails from the sunny
South and he seems to have brought
with him the characteristic Missis-
sippi disposition which has, in the
last four years, become famous on
One would never suspect, from the
above likeness, that Vera is usually
thought of by those with whom she
is not very well acquainted, as a very
serious-minded and demure little lass.
However, this picture is a true rep-
resentation of her as her friends know
her; as she might look, for instance,
after having invented a new and par-
ticularly fitting nickname for one of
her fellow-sufferers, or after she has
heard "a good one" on one of the
students. Don't think, though, that
Vera has no serious moments. She
has. One glance through her list of
student activities, or over her grade
sheet, should be enough to convince
anyone of that fact. Vera has one
weakness that we know of — it is for
Val, the curly-headed man from
Zeigler, has a bent for science. As
everyone knows, science is a hard
taskmaster and brains are the neces-
sary starting point. Cheerful and
ready to tell all kinds of funny stor-
ies, he approaches with a friendly slap
on the back.
Besides books, the athletic field has
a big attraction for him. On the
football field Val proves his stability
as a guard and in track, sprinting is
his specialty. As a relay man he is
perfectly at home. May he realize
his ambitions in the race of life.

Newton sent us this jolly care-free
senior. We are sure that the town
must be a great deal sadder since she
left, for there never was a girl who
could put more cheer into a group
than can Audrey. When that char-
acteristic ripple of laughter breaks
forth, one knows that she is near and
in her usual good humor. Her motto
is: "Once a friend — always a friend,"
and a true friend she is. Freshmen
coming to school instinctively turn
to her for advice and comfort. Her
favorite quotation is, "All is well" —
and certainly that is her outlook on
Hubert Hurley, A. B.
Oxford Club: Asbury College.
Hubert, one of our student pastors,
comes to us from Asbury College.
Just before coming to McKendree, he
cast his lot with the adventurers on
the matrimonial voyage. While Hu-
bert is very seldom seen or heard
around McKendree's campus, if you
should journey to the little city of
Caseyville, you will find him very ac-
tive there as pastor of the Methodist
Church. We wish to commend Hur-
ley on his choice of a school from
which to take his degree. Such men
as Hurley are always desirable stu-
dents on McKendree's campus and
become worthy alumni. He is a
very conscientious and earnest work-
er and guided as he is by high ambi-
tion and the inspiration of his wife,
success surely awaits him.

Belle, although she comes from
our sister state, Missouri, has come
to be one of us during her four years'
stay with us. She has been loyal to
the Glee Club through all four years
and her "uke" is simply a part of
Belle. Two successive years as cap-
tain of one of our woman's debate
teams has established her ability in
the line of forensics.
She's an athlete, too, in spite of
her size, and is never too busy to
back McKendree's athletic teams —
winning or losing. She has plenty
of school spirit and we'll remember
Belle as a loyal McKendrean.

Lec is the studious member of the

has time to match wits with anyone
ambitious enough to take the risk.
No one ever enjoyed a hearty laugh
more than he. Lee is a worthy mem-
ber of every organization to which he
belongs, for he never does things
half-way. Philo will long remember
his witty speeches and brilliant es-
says. Lee seems to have only two

All that's gold does not always
glitter. The air of sobriety which
surrounds John in the Review office
and in the library is a missing entity
when he bursts forth in all his elo-
quence on Philo floor. This year he
has more time to devote to the pub-
lic need, for heretofore his chief
pleasure has been the approval of a
fair one of the hill. Did he succeed?
It appears so, and by the way, he
goes to Belleville every week-end. He
reminds one of the cream, always
rising to the top, whether it be in
baseball, Philo, or the Bachelors.
John, always do your best, as you
have here at McKendree.

The most pompous and experienced man in our class is Mr. Hinchcliffe.
Although he has not been attending classes with us, he has completed his regular
college program by doing evening work under the direction of the faculty. Mr.
Hinchcliffe is superintendent of the O'Fallon Public Schools and holds a high
position among the educators of southern Illinois. Persevering by nature and
filled with an ambition to attain greater heights, for which he has long striven
and at last achieved. Our classmate, while not in intimate association with us,
has become a friend of all and is a genial companion to all who know him.

McKendree College Hobo Day
Hobo Day has become one of McKendree's permanent institutions and is
the occasion of much festivity and originality on the part of the men of the
college. The "dress parade," which usually continues throughout one day,
always precedes an important event, as an athletic contest or some other school
activity. This year the occasion inaugurated Homecoming Day which, despite
the inclement weather, proved to be a success. On Hobo Day everyone not
dressing in accord with the dictates of fashion is, temporarily at least, a social
outcast. This year the girls of Clark Hall, not to be outdone, became
"Hobelles" for the evening and formed an appropriate climax to the day of
jollity. Professors tolerate the antics of the Hoboes, even in classes, knowing
that the show is but an expression of energy which youth cannot contain.
Hobo Day at McKendree received unusual distinction this year in that the above
picture was taken to commemorate the occasion. The photograph appeared
in a St. Louis newspaper and aroused much comment and interest.

The Illinois Theta Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic
fraternity, was established at McKendree College in 19 24. The aim of this
organization is to encourage inter-collegiate forensic relations as well as to
develop the art of public speaking and argumentation. Intellectual, rather than
social activities receive the greatest stress. Pi Kappa Delta is open to both men
and women of the college who qualify for admission. This year sixteen new
members were received which is a decided increase over any previous period.
The social event of the year is an elaborate banquet held in the spring, at which
time faculty members and students enjoy a social evening and recall memories
of debating days.

Alpha Psi Omega is a national honorary dramatic fraternity in which
membership is granted for outstanding work in dramatic productions. Alpha
Theta cast was installed at McKendree College in 1927 with sixteen charter
members. Although only three faculty and three student members returned in
the fall of 1928, five new members soon qualified and were admitted in the early
spring of 1 929.
The organization has inspired much interest in dramatics at McKendree
so that the dramatic department, under the supervision of Miss Olive Patmore,
has been able to accomplish much in the sphere of dramatic productions and
the purchase of new stage fixtures. Alpha Psi Omega holds its standards high
and its purposes worthy, thereby making membership an honor which is
Each year the cast holds an elaborate social function in the spring, at which
time many of the former members return and enjoy recollections of former days.
This and the production of "Romeo and Juliet" are the outstanding events of
Alpha Psi Omega's second year at McKendree.
There has been a frequent demand at various entertainments for one-act
plays which are staged by the class in Play Production throughout the year.

Sigma Zeta. while one of McKendree's smallest organizations, is by no
means of minor significance. The society was founded for the promotion and
recognition of scholarship among undergraduate students in the sciences and
mathematics. The Beta Chapter established at McKendree College in 1927.
while the second oldest group chartered in the entire organization, has never had
a large membership, due, in part at least, to the high standard of work de-
manded of candidates. Membership consists solely of senior college students
majoring in the sciences and members of the faculty interested in those particular
fields. Within the past few years, several new chapters have been organized
throughout the middle west and Sigma Zeta promises to become, some day, a
fraternity of a national distinction.

The Y. M. C. A. is an organization whose aim is to stimulate and develop
the spiritual, moral and social ideals on the campus. It is not such a large
group, but it is increasing as the years pass.
The Y. M. C. A. has been co-operating with the Y. W. C. A. to a great
extent this year in the way of "mixers" and the Lyceum Courses.
The Faculty Advisors, Professors Walton, Kinison, and Garvin, have been
a great help in promoting great interest in the devotional meetings. Projects
among the students are also on the program of this group of young men.

The Young Women's Christian Association is an old and well-known
organization upon McKendree's campus. It is organized to help the women
of the campus to live full and creative lives.
The work of the Y. W. has consisted of giving to the girls a devotional
hour in the midst of their busy week and also talks by faculty members and
The Christmas tree that was decorated on the front campus was placed

association and it is accomplished by the co-operation of the two societies.

Ministerial students and faculty members compose this organization which
was organized in 1920 by Dr. W. N. Sterns. It was reorganized in 1926 by
Dr. J. W. A. Kinison and has continued as one of the active organizations of
the hill up to the present time.
Among its members we find nine active pastors: Clark Lee Allen serves
Glen Carbon: G. W. Hines is at Huey: Lewis N. Head holds down St. Jacob:
Dale Hagler goes to Livingston and Fairview: Fred Mery holds sway at Shattuc;
John W. Montgomery leads the flock at East Granite: Wilfred A. Pemberton
rides to Troy and Zion; Hubert Hurley preaches at Caseyville; Hugh Archibald
is at Pissa and Fidelity and Professor W. B. Garvin at Brighton.
Besides contributing to the various school activities throughout the school
year the Club holds regular meetings every two weeks in which talks are enjoyed
and vital problems of the minister are brought up and discussed. Many prac-
tical helps are secured from these meetings.

Few clubs on College Hill show the direct results of their activities more
than does the Nature Club which was founded by Dr. E. R. Spencer in 1926.
Since its organization at that time, under the leadership of Dr. Spencer, this
club has been one of the most active on the campus.
Its chief aims are: the sponsoring of nature study, bird study, stellar ob-
servation and beautification of the college campus. Much has been accomplished
during the past year in beautifying our campus. Shrubbery has been planted,
flower beds made, trees pruned and leaves raked from the grounds.
The club meets each Wednesday evening at eight P. M. Here the problems
of beautifying the campus are discussed, papers on nature subjects read, readings
pertaining to nature given, and slides shown on interesting nature subjects, such
as pictures of heavenly bodies or national park scenes.
This year there are about thirty students of the college who are members
of this society, as well as several faculty members.

The Education Club is one of the largest organizations on the campus.
This is the first year of its existence. Its organization was the result of the
efforts of Professor Garvin, the head of the Education Department. Its pur-
poses are: to acquaint prospective teachers with the practical problems of the
profession, and to help them to solve those problems efficiently; and to sponsor
the publication of the teachers' bulletin. The bulletin will be instrumental,
under the supervision of Professor Garvin, in the placing of those students who
are preparing for the teaching profession into suitable positions.
The Club meets bi-weekly for business and social purposes and is certainly
filling a long-felt need on our campus. The first semester the organization acted
as host to the members of the Extension Course in Education given by Professor
Garvin in Carlyle, Illinois.
The second semester the Club was the means of bringing Superintendent
Frohardt, of Granite City, to present a very helpful address to those who ex-
pect to teach. Although the Club is in its infancy, we see it as an organization
rich in possibilities.

Under the supervision of Miss Parker, head of the Romance Language
Department, the French Club of McKendree College was organized this year.
The purpose of this organization is to increase the facility of the intermediate
and advanced students in the speaking of the French language. With this ob-
jective in view, no English is allowed during any regular Club meeting. The
meetings are held regularly bi-weekly at various places. The Club is divided
into three sections, each of which with the assistance of the program manager,
takes charge of the programs in their respective order. "La Marseillaise" and
various French folk-songs, essays on eminent French men and women, im-
portant historical events and French games and riddles find their way into the
very interesting programs. That benefits both from social and educational
standpoints are derived from the organization, is indicated by the interest of the
members in the work of the Club.

The Societas Classica is the newest organization founded on McKendree's
campus this year. It consists of Greek and Latin students who have certain
scholastic qualifications. The purpose of the Societas Classica is to promote
an active and organized interest in the Greek and Latin classics.
The organization has a good start and will continue to grow under the
capable and interesting leadership of Professor J. C. Dolley. A pin has been
selected to represent the club, of which it is very proud. The activities of the
new society will undoubtedly build up and create new interests in the fascinat-

The School of Music offers a four-year course in piano, organ, violin,
and voice leading to the degree of Bachelor of Music. An unusually large num-
ber of advanced students are enrolled this year in this department.
Six students were graduated this year from the department cf Public School
Music after completing the two-year course in that work. The quality of
work coming out cf this department proclaims the high worth of the instructor,
Miss Pauline Harper.
A number of students take advantage of the educational opportunities
presented by the orchestra, band, glee clubs, quartettes, etc. These organiza-
tions creditably represent McKendree whenever the occasion arises for such
programs as are included in their repertoire. Miss Martha Schmucker is the
director of the glee clubs and quartettes. Mr. Eugene Schaefer is the efficient
director of the band and orchestra as well as instructor in violin. Professor
Kruwell is the instructor in piano and organ.
The Expression Department has been unusually successful under the direc-
tion of Miss Olive Patmore. This year, for the first time in the history of
McKendree College, a four-year course leading to the degree cf Bachelor of
Arts was offered. The department presented, very successfully, Shakespeare's
Romeo and Juliet in February, and the class in Play Production presented a
very interesting program of one-act plays in the Spring.

Oratory and Extemporaneous Speaking
Oratory is not merely literature. It is not a matter of moving the arms
or the lips or the eyes or even the eyebrows — but of moving the audience.
Oratory is the art of bringing ideas to white heat and then letting them loose
among men through the immediate agency of the most powerful stimulus
known to man — personality.
Work in this great art has gained recognition and grown in popularity
on McKendree's campus during the past year. When the call was given for
orators in the fall several responded and as a result of a very closely contested
preliminary Lewis N. Head and Mrs. Ouida Kole, both sophomores, were
chosen to represent McKendree in the various contests of the season. Mr.
Head in his oration had a very convincing plea for world-peace, using as his
subject "The Unfinished Task and America's Responsibility." Mrs. Kole
spoke in behalf of "The American College Student."
On February 14th and 15th McKendree had the honor of being host to
the Illinois Intercollegiate Oratorical Association. In this contest, which was
won by Monmouth College, were found some of the strongest orators of the
state. McKendree has the president of this association for the ensuing year.
Our school was also represented in the Southern Illinois and Southeast
Missouri Oratorical Association held at Cape Girardeau.
The crowning achievement in the art of oratory came in the spring when
it was announced that Mr. W. R. Dorris of OFallon endowed, in memory
of his mother, Harriet E. Dorris, a fund for an intra-mural oratorical contest
to be held on June 6, 1929. The prizes to be awarded are $50, $30, and $20
for winners of first, second and third places, respectively. This contest, which
is to be an annual event at commencement time, is open to all regular college
students. There must, however, be not less than four contestants, and the
winner of first place will net be eligible for competition in future years.
In the field of Extemporaneous Speaking. Clark Lee Allen and Mrs. Ouida
Kole were victorious in the preliminaries, and as a result represented the school
in the different meets. The subject for the men's speech was. "The Over-
population of American Colleges," and for the women, "The Influence of
Invention on International Relations."
With the increasing interest in this forensic work both oratory and extem-
poraneous speaking should occupy a very prominent place among McKendree's
extra-curricular activities for the next vear.

Glenn F. Filley
Ccach Glen F. Filley holds an enviable position in the
hearts of all true McKendreans. His staunch stand for
true sportsmanship at any cost has been a major factor
in his success at McKendree and has gained for him the
respect and admiration of all who come in contact with
him. There has never been anything other than clean
American sportsmanship displayed by any team which
he has coached. Filley came to us from Missouri Wesleyan
where his records as an athlete speak for themselves. While
at the Missouri school his ability as a football man gained
for him the selection as all-state end. During his four
years at McKendree Coach Filley has turned out football,
basketball and track teams that have rated high in the
"Little Nineteen " Conference.
Football Squad of 1929
After four years of active participation in athletics
"Steve" has become a very important cog in the direction
of sports at McKendree. For three years Kole won the
Purple "M," earning his letter in three major sports. His
speed in the backfield wen for him the name of the
"Edwardsville Flash" on the gridiron, and this same speed
was available in the spring on the track. In baseball
"Steve" ranked with the best Purple fly-chasers. Under
his coaching this year the second basketball squad lost
only one game and defeated some of the best independent
teams in this section of the state. He now has full charge
of a very promising baseball squad.
EDWARD SHADOWEN, Captain
Earning his third varsity "M." Captain Shadowen
played his usual steady, but aggressive brand of
football. His ability in rifling passes, receiving passes
and his tactful signal calling, wen for him an en-
viable place in McKendree athletics. "Eddie" has
another year of football before him.
The Purple grid squad of 1928 faced a more formidable array of opponents
than any football team in the historv of McKendree athletics. The Bear Cats
were in action ten times during the fall and five of these games were on the
right side of the sport's ledger. The five reverses were by some of the strongest
teams in Illinois and Missouri.
1DRIS CORNWELL, Captain-Elect
Cornwell presents a triple threat to all opponents.
A punter de luxe, an able passer, a deadly line-
plunger, made "Dudes" poison to the enemy. Above
all, this fullback has won the respect of his team
mates, which should prove a valuable asset to the
captain of the Purple for 1929.
This versatile athlete was an important addition
to the grid squad. Beginning the season in the back-
field in a capable manner, Val finished the season
en the line with even higher honors. A true fighter
in every sense of the word.
The Filleymen inaugurated the grid season at Springfield, Missouri, where
they faced the Southwestern State Teachers' College. By circling ends for
long gains, the Springfield Bears downed the Purple by the rather decisive
score of 26-0.
Clay City. Illinois
"Watt" earned his first football letter at the end
position, where he performed in a capable manner.
Severely handicapped by injuries, "Watt" fought
that much harder, which accounted for the little
ground gaining around his side of the line.
ft jl^falfifll ■
West Point, Miss.
"Perk" turned his track ability to the football
cause and in his senior year won his "M" in the
fall sport. His shrewd selection of signals and his
fleetness of foot made him a worthy addition to
the Purple backfield. His wcrk was especially bril-
liant in the Scott Field game, in which he directed
the team in a praiseworthy fashion.
The first real indication of the strength of the Purple came on the follow-
ing Saturday when the men of Filley met the strong St. Louis University
Billikens. Although doped to lose by five touchdowns, the Bear Cats held
the Blue and White to a single touchdown, which was scored late in the second
period. The McKendree line, and especially Koch, gave a splendid account
Eli more than fulfilled expectations. This
athlete was a back difficult to equal on the defense,
while he was an important cog in the running
attack. His work was prominent during the en-
tire season, and especially outstanding in the
"Slim's" six -foot -four altitude made this southern
Illinois lad a real end. On the defense Clayton was
unusually brilliant. Slim was also a lineman who
broke into the scoring column by picking up a fumble
in the Scott Field battle and going over for the
Evansville College of Evansville, Indiana, proved to be the first victims of
the Methodists, when they were downed en their own field by a score of
20-13. The McKendree backfield gave its first exhibition of a smooth- working
offense. Led by Captain Shadcwen and Sarple, the Purple rounded the ends,
hit the line and passed to their first victory of the season.
"Fuzzy," tipping the scales at one hundred and
ninety pounds, was an outstanding performer on the
Purple line. He was equally as good on offense as
defense. His fast thinking accounted for his scoring
two touchdowns for the Filleymen during the
Koch was the outstanding lineman during the past
season. Weighing over two hundred pounds, this
Belleville youth made hole after hole in the enemy
line, paving the way for the Purple backs. His con-
sistent brilliant performance won for him a place on
the second All-State Team.
The mighty Rolla Miners presented the Bear Cats with their third defeat
of the year by trouncing the Filleymen at Rolla to the tune of 19-0. Koch
and Sarple again stood out in stellar roles.
"Whitey" won his second "M" on the gridiron
by displaying real college football. His lightness
in weight proved to be an asset rather than a lia-
bility to him. A deadly tackier, a wonderful blocker
and a genius at snaring passes made Kaesar a real
Early season injuries kept Fiegenbaum on the side-
lines until mid-season. Then "Fiege" displayed his
wares in splendid style Although light in weight
he was a heavy burden to the enemy. His character-
istic ability in stepping would-be ground gainers was
The third invasion into Missouri territory was the most disastrous game of
the year and the worst defeat in many years. Using all known tactics in offen-
sive football, the Kirksville Osteopaths defeated the Bears by the overwhelming
score of 47-0. Sarple's forty-five yard run was the only bright light in the
otherwise drab day.
Although handicapped throughout the season by
injuries, Isley won his second football "M." On
both defense and offense, this six-foot athlete played
the end position as it should have been played. His
rare ability in blocking and tackling was an out-
standing factor in almost every game.
"Tony" won his football "M" by giving all he
had on the gridiron. This former Purdue lad was a
fast charger in spite of his weight. He was also a
drop-kicker of real ability, booting the oval through
the bars for six counters in one game.
The Purple entered its first "Little 19" tilt against Lincoln on the foreign
field. Led by Tatalovich, the Filleymen completely mauled the Railsplitters,
31-0. Tatalovich, Captain Shadowen, Church, and Sarple, proved to be very
troublesome to the Lincoln crew.
Coming from Southern Illinois Normal University
to McKendree, Pitchford brought all of his football
ability. A good defensive man, coupled with per-
fect passing ability, was responsible for Pitchford's
great showing at center. He will perform two more
years for the Purple.
"Big John" earned a berth on the line in his fresh-
man year by exhibiting real football. With the true
Herrin spirit he turned back many a thrust at the
McKendree line. Despite his two hundred and six
pounds. "Big John" broke through the enemy line
many times throwing backs for losses. A real line
prospect for 1 929.
Revenge was indeed sweet on Homecoming Day when Shurtleff, the tradi-
tional foe, was defeated. Playing in a sea of mud, neither team could make any
headway. However, late in the third quarter, Hubbell, who had been in a
stellar role all day, broke through the Pioneer line to block a punt and fall on
it for the decisive score. Again the McKendree line was the major factor in the
"Art" was another member of the Hortin family
to become a distinguished McKendrean. "Art's"
hobby happened to be football, and he was an im-
portant member of the 1928 football machine. His
characteristic voice did much to bolster up the Purple
"Bud," of track fame, performed equally well on
the football field. His clear thinking, hard tackling,
and speed made him a valuable man to the squad.
Determination was a major factor in his success.
"Bud" is only a freshman.
Flat River was completely routed on the following Saturday, 48-0. Corn-
well, Koch, Tatalovich, Perkins and Kaesar crossed the goal line for counters.
Watkins gave an excellent example of a de luxe drop kick. The scoring orgy
continued after the Purple substitutes had relieved the regulars.
Coach Filley received a real addition to his 1928
squad in "Fat" Evers, who proved to be an able line-
man to send into any game. Although only a fresh-
man, Evers succeeded in winning his letter by proving
his worth in stopping line smashes.
Egypt sent us another athlete of no mean ability
when Tucker reported for football. A fast charger,
a hard tackier, a clear thinker, made Tucker a de-
pendable lineman. Being only a freshman, we should
see this lad play an important role in future Purple
The Scott Field Aviators were the next victims of the rejuvenated Bear Cats.
The Flyers were defeated 45-0, in which the entire McKendree squad took
advantage of every break.
A dash around end was "Spot's" specialty and
there he used his speed to a real advantage. A sure
and mighty tackier made Sparlin a real halfback. The
"Flora Flash" will see three more years of service.
One Hundred One
This fast, shifty back was a major factor in the
success of the 1928 Bear Cats. His speed, coupled
with his shifty broken field running, was responsible
for many a gain for the Purple. "Feety-Two" Sarple
was perhaps the best ground gainer on the squad.
By reason of the previous defeats of Lincoln and Shurtleff in Conference
games, the Purple journeyed to Peoria with the "Little 19" championship at
stake. Meeting Bradley Tech in the last game of the season, the Filleymen
were downed by the score of 39-6. Captain Shadowen and Sarple were back-
field stars, while Koch shone on the line. Goode, Perkins. Baggott, and Wat-
tles played their last grid game in the Purple uniform.

Being the smallest man on the squad did not keep

With no previous football training, this local
youth made a name for himself in his freshman year
on the gridiron. His speed and shifting gained many
yards for the Bear Cats. In the next three years
Church should develop into a premier backfield man.
Honorable mention is here made of Ray Goode, who was one of the most
formidable men on the Purple squad. Ray has become famous as a local and
national track star, but does not confine his activities to one field. The fact
that his picture does not appear here is no reflection on his prowess, but rather
an unavoidable coincidence. Goode is a four-letter man in football.
Belleville High presented Daumueller to the 1928
Purple squad. A steady and dependable man won
for "Butch" the confidence of his fellow players.
His dish was in breaking up line smashes.

ATHLETICS AT McKENDREE
Participation in and enjoyment of sports at McKendree is growing yearly.
With the building of strong teams has come a recognition of the school by the
larger institutions of learning in the Middle West, as a producer of fair fighting
athletes and formidable rivals. This year the football squad engaged in combat
with the teams of Bradley Tech., St. Louis U., and other schools of similar
ranking. The basketball team played schools of high calibre, such as St. Louis
U. and Rolla School of Mines. This year the baseball nine played the Univer-
sity of Illinois Reserves. While all of these games are not always won, never-
theless, the Bear Cats always furnish such competition that return games are
requested. In addition to these, McKendree always makes remarkable showings
in the "Little Nineteen" Conference tilts. In Doctor Harmon, the school has
a man who is vitally interested in sports and who assists greatly in securing
athletes of recognized ability, to attend McKendree. Coaches Filley, Garvin, and
Kole have also proved themselves to be leaders of no mean ability and are
entitled to a goodly share of the glory which McKendree has received in inter-

Harold Culver, Captain
Captain Culver finished his basketball
career for the Purple in a brilliant fashion.
Equally good en the defense as on the
offense, this six-foot-two athlete was a
constant threat to the enemy. Culver's
passing and floor work was especially out-
standing during the past season. He leaves
a place which will be difficult to fill.
Chlorous Hubbell, Captain-elect
"Fuzzy" was a scoring ace of the 1928-
'29 squad. A deadly shot made this Flora
lad a dangerous man from any angle on
the floor, and his work under the basket
was especially brilliant. A six-foot height
made "Fuzz" a consistent defensive man.
EDWARD Shadowen. Captain-elect
"Eddie," although handicapped in size,
displayed a consistent game at guard. His
fast thinking, calm judgment, and ability
to advance the ball, were major factors in
many Bearcat victories. This stellar ath-
lete has one more season to don the
Hard, but clean playing, was an out-
standing characteristic of "Whitie," and
made him a dependable guard. The same
determination which he displayed on the
gridiron was carried over to the basketball
court to a decided advantage.
One Hundred Si.i
Deadly shooting, aggressiveness, and
fast breaking, all combined to make this
local youth's freshman year a successful
one on the basketball floor. Church is
another high point man who proved a
vital factor in running up scores against
It was mid-season before
himself at the guard position
on, Evers was in every Purple battle and
gave a splendid account of himself. With
this defensive power, and three years of
service before him, "Fat" should rate high
among the conference guards.
"Charlie" was a dependable man to
send in at any stage of the game. He was
a real offensive threat. Whether to stave
off a rally or to start one, this Witt ath-
lete was a valuable man to rush into the
fray. Being only a freshman, Sanders
has a real basketball career ahead of him.
"Bud" was another freshman who
earned his "M" by displaying real basket-
ball. He entered McKendree with a splen-
did high school record as a guard, and
certainly lived up to his reputation. A
defensive star with even more promise for
the coming season is "Bud."
One Hundred Seven
Coach Glen Filley's Purple basketball cagers finished a season in which
they copped nine victories in seventeen battles. Six of the eight tilts lost were
close games, the games being decided in the closing minutes of play. Dame
Fortune seemed to frown on the Filleymen in the close games.
In the "Little Nineteen," the Bear Cats claimed five wins and four reverses.
According to traditions, the Purple lost to the Shurtleff Pioneers at Alton in a
close game, and won from their rivals on the home floor by a decisive score.
With Carbondale Normal the tables were turned, S. I. N. U. winning on the
local floor and the Filleymen downing the Teachers at Carbondale, 37-26,
when Culver proved the hero. In a ragged contest, Carthage defeated Culver
and his mates at home by the score of 24-20, while McKendree won from
Carthage at Carthage by seven points. Lombard, the Conference leaders,
administered the Purple Aces their fourth and last Conference set-back, when
they won 38-3 3 in a real battle, in which Hubbell and Church proved to be
the stars. Lincoln was defeated, 3 7-19, in which "Fuzzy" again had a stellar
role. The highly-touted Macomb five were downed by the score of 3 3-26 to
give the Men of Filley a percentage of .5 56 in the Conference.
In non-Conference tilts the Bear Cats finished the season with a record of
four wins and as many losses. Two games were won from the Belleville
Turners by overwhelming scores. Evansville College defeated the Purple, 34-
30 at Evansville in an overtime tilt. However, the Evansville crew were de-
feated on the local floor later in the season by the brilliant work of Culver,
Hubbell and Shadowen. St. Louis University was responsible for the Bear's
most humiliating defeat of the year. The Springfield Teachers and Missouri
Wesleyan also boast of victories over the locals. The husky Rolla Miners were
downed at Rolla by the score of 34-29.
Hubbell and V. Church proved to be the scoring aces of the squad, while
the passing and floor work of Captain Culver was especially brilliant. The
guard positions were well cared for by Shadowen, Kaesar, Saunders and Evers.
Culver will be the only letterman lost to the squad.
One Hundred Eight
Cross Country Team
In addition to her other athletic activities, McKendree added a cross-
country team this year. The team made a very creditable showing under Coach
Garvin's able leadership. Jts greatest handicap was a lack of experience, which
will be overcome in following years. The team participated in two dual meets
with Illinois College of Jacksonville and in the state meet (I. I. A. C.) held
at Peoria. In the dual meets McKendree won one (24-31) and lost one
(27-28). The team placed fourth in the state meet. The prospects for next
year are indeed promising as none of the men will be lost by graduation. Coach
Garvin also announces that men will be kept in training throughout the sum-
mer months in order that a team may be in readiness for the early fall track
meets. Cross country running is fast becoming a popular sport at all of the
colleges of the Middle West, for it makes a delightful combination with football,
which does not appeal as strongly to some persons as do track events. The
letter men of this year are: Captain Hall, Spencer, Bartlesmeyer, Church, Bush,
Colyer, Hortin, and Hines.

Track Summary of 1928
The Purple track squad opened the season in a dual meet with Washington
University, in which Washington proved the victor. Spencer won the two-
mile and Goode hurled the javelin over 190 feet to place first. The Filleymen
were the victors at Lebanon on May 4 in a triangular meet between Shurtleff,
Carbondale Normal, and McKendree. The trusty Goode won both the javelin
and discus throw. Culver amassed ten points by winning the high and low
hurdles. Middleton finished ahead of the field in the mile run and Spencer
won the two-mile. Gould tied for first in the pole vault and Isley did the same
thing in the high jump. The Purple also won the mile relay. At a tri-
angular meet at Springfield. Missouri, between the Teachers, Shurtleff, and
McKendree, the Fillymen won second place. Goode again won the javelin and
Culver ankled over the high hurdles in 16 seconds flat. Upsetting all dope,
the Carbondale Teachers downed the Bear Cats by the score of 65^-64^.
Goode hurled the javelin over 205 feet and put the shot over 41 feet. Isley
won the high hurdles and Bartlesmeyer finished first in the 880-yard run.
Culver was the victor in the low hurdles. In the relay, Await, Haskin. Bag-
gott and Perkins easily proved supreme. At the State Meet at Monmouth, Ray
Goode broke his own record in the javelin throw with a throw of 197 feet
and 8 inches. Culver placed second in the high hurdles.

Despite a lack of seasoned material, a stiff schedule, and loss of the ace of
the hurling staff in mid-season through ineligibility, the Bear Cat diamond men
of 1928 won three of the eight games played.
There were eight lettermen available as the season opened; of these, four
were outfielders and two were catchers. Captain Jack, Kole, Martin, and Clay-
ton were the returning gardeners, Nichols and Guandolo, the receivers, Cornwell
the twirler, and Oster at the keystone cushion, the lone survivor of the 1927
infield. Coach Hall settled the third base problem by converting Captain Jack,
a classy flychaser, into an excellent guardian of the hot corner. The hard hit-
ting freshman, Tatalovich, soon showed that first base was to be his position.
After a hard duel for the shortstop position, Reichert beat Hamilton out of the
place. Koch, neat freshman back-stop, broke into the line-up in practically all
the games. Howard Taylor assumed the bulk of the pitching burden after
Cornwell retired. Kole patrolled the center garden in all the games, while the
work in the other fields was divided between Clayton and Martin, and the two
newcomers, Hamilton and Maxwell.
The season's scores are Western Military Academy 3, McKendree 8;
Washington University 10, McKendree 3; Concordia 3. McKendree 1: Eden
11, McKendree 10; Blackburn 0, McKendree 14: Eden 4, McKendree 5; Black-
burn 7, McKendree 5; Shurtleff 15, McKendree 12.
At this early date the forecasters are predicting a successful season for the
1929 Bear Cats. There is good reason for this attitude. A glimpse over the
roster reveals that there are ten lettermen available for duty as the season opens
and a wealth of new material as well. Cornwell is back for his third season to
baffle the opposition with his shoots, while Kaesar, moundsman in '26 and '27,
is ready for another year. Dorries, relief hurler of last year, may develop, while
much is expected of Larsch, a freshman. Koch and Nichols, 1928 catchers, are
promised plenty of opposition by Watkins, formerly of Purdue, for the catching
assignment. Advance reports have it that the slugging Tatalovich will have a
fight for the initial sack with Evers and Hosier, two frosh. Captain Oster will,
in all probability, start his fourth season at the keystone unless Frohardt, second
sack of the 1926 squad, who is again in school, takes the job. Reichert seems
to be a fixture at short, because of his steady feeling and level-headed playing.
Gossett and Sanders, freshmen with the highest recommendations as infielders,
are expected to put up a scrap for the third-base position. Maxwell, Hamilton
and Clayton, outfielders, are promised opposition by Isley, Barbaglia, Koch,
Nichols and Randall.
The schedule is not definitely arranged as yet, but to date two games are
scheduled with Shurtleff, two with Illinois College, two with Eastern Normal,
and two with Murray Normal of Murray, Kentucky. One game is scheduled
with the University of Illinois Reserves. Though not yet scheduled, Concordia,
Washington University and Western Military Academy are almost certain to
be on the card.
Stephen Kole will coach the team.

Tennis Record of 1928
(By a Fan)
For the first time in the history of McKendree the tennis team paraded
through the season without a single defeat. Ten tilts were won in easy fashion
against formidable opponents. The men who carried the Bear Cat tennis rac-
quet to dazzling heights were the letter-men, Vernal Hardy and Ronald Mowe,
and a pair of skillful Frosh. George Baggott and Walter Klein, both of whom
set a dizzy pace for opponents. During the season the Bear Cats squelched
Carbondale in two matches, smothered Illinois College in two meets, smeared
Blackburn twice, walloped Eden Seminary mercilessly in a pair of tilts, and
last, but not least, the old rival Shurtleff was forced to bow to the Purple Aces
in two matches. The ace of the team was the brilliant Klein, who hails from
Granite City. The scintillating freshman hammered his way over all opposi-
tion, bowing to no one and losing not a single match. At the State Meet Klein
took third place after a quiet uphill battle. Baggott was also a stellar performer,
who paired with Klein in doubles. The other pair, Mowe and Hardy, deserve
far more than passing mention, inasmuch as they furnished the nucleus of the
team with plenty of seasoned experience.
Last year the girls broke into the limelight through the medium of tennis
playing. The team consisted of Lavina Zook and Edna Kinsey, doubles;
Martha Rogers and Orena Mowe, doubles; and Martha Rogers, singles. The
first match was played with Shurtleff on May 23rd, McKendree losing the
match with the exception of the doubles game played by Martha Rogers and
Orena Mowe. This did not discourage the girls, however, and they were repre-
sented on May 25th at the State Meet held at Milliken University. Kinsey and
Zook won their initial match with Lincoln and lost the next match to Mon-
mouth, winners of the meet. Rogers lost her singles match to Milliken by a
very close score. On May 30th, Shurtleff came to McKendree and won a hard
fought battle, surrendering only one singles match. Rogers took second honors
in the State Meet. At Carlinville, on May 31st, McKendree defeated Blackburn
in every match. Prospects for an interesting tennis schedule and a successful
season this year are very bright, for after a beginning such as least year's, many
are ready to fall in line and encourage this form of girls' athletics.

Popularity Contest Winners
Popularity and accomplishment go
hand in hand with Culver. He stands
in the public eye throughout the year
and in whatever activity he partakes
success seems to follow him. Harold
makes his first bow as an athlete on
the basketball court. This year he
very capably filled his office as Cap-
tain of the squad and won even
greater laurels than in former years.
With the approach of spring he is to
be found on the track where he spe-
cializes in high and low hurdles. He
is also a tennis player of no mean
ability. Culver, while an athlete, is
also a popular entertainer at social
gatherings. His deep bass voice and
instrumental technique find nothing
but approval wherever presented.
This year he is president of the Men's
Glee Club. Plato boasts of him as
a favorite son and he has also broken
into the exclusive Bachelor Society.
The student body is to be com-
mended for its selection of Culver as
the best all-around man, for if popu-
larity on the campus and student
activities are a standard of measure,
he certainly deserves high honors.
Although the contest among the
boys was closely contested, Lavina
took an early lead in the voting and
was an easy victor when the final
ballot was cast. Lavina is quite ver-
satile in her activities about the cam-
pus. She left school at the end of
the first semester in order to supply
a teacher's vacancy in the city schools.
Although she no longer attends
classes on the hill, her face is still a
familiar sight here during her leisure
hours. She is an active member of
Clio, where her rich alto voice charms
all listeners. She has a bent towards
commercial work and served as assist-
ant registrar during the first semester,
where efficiency characterized her
work. Last year she served as secre-
tary to the president. The success
of our girls' tennis team of last year
was due in a large measure to her
skill as a player. Lavina represents
the typical American girl of which
McKendree is so proud.

A novelty in the McKendrean cf 1929 is the snapshot contest. The
above picture was selected by faculty judges from a great number which was
submitted. This particular snapshot was chcsen because of its fulfillment of the
cardinal requirements of good photography.
1. Unity of photographic composition
2. Clearness of detail
3. Pertinence to college life
The picture is an excellent example of coherence in photographic com-
position. The details of the snapshot are clearly defined and vivid in an
artistic way, giving the composition real photographic worth.
The scene is one which is familiar to every McKendrean. No person who
has known our schcol can fail to recall happy memories connected with this
particular campus scene. Virgil Church is one cf cur most enthusiastic photog-
raphers, whose personal photograph album with its unusual collection of snap-
shots is proof enough of real ability in his hobby of photography. This
example of merit fully entitles him to the award of $2.50, which was first
prize for the snapshots submitted in the contest.

To My Room
Once again before I leave thee.
Dark and dingy, dear old room.
Leave thee, it may be forever,
Wrapped in solitude and gloom,
Let me whisper in thy silence,
Thoughts which still, like sweet perfume,
Stealing o'er me, thrall my senses
Bind my heart to thee, my room.
For thy very gloom I loved thee,
For thy peaceful solitude
Here, within thy steady silence,
Where no gaping crowds intrude;
Here when tried by fickle fortune
Or by such encounters rude
As distressed me. I found shelter,
Fearing none, by none pursued.
Often too with "chums" around me
Here by day and night forsooth,
Berne along upon the current
Of our merry, boisterous youth,
Plots were laid and plans recited,
Full of mischief, waking ruth
For the victims who not seldom
Proved to be ourselves, in truth.
Here, too, in thy silent precincts
I have prayed and labored true:
Was it all for naught? I leave it
To my God, the world, and you.
Thou my room with my Creator,
Canst reveal what strife I knew,
Only thou hast been my witness,
Only thou canst know my due.
If from long association
Aught arises in the mind.
To endear an object, why then
May I not such pleasure find.
When I pass across the threshold.
Where my memory hath entwined
Wreaths which only death can wither,
Wreaths long since by love entwined?
Fare thee well, scarred walls and broken,
Keep the secrets left with you
Which my soul with strong emotion,
Struggling could net hide from view.
Days to come will find me turning
To thy scenes with pleasure true.
And around thy walls will cluster
Peaceful thoughts. Old Room, adieu!

A man once tried to train a fish to live out of water. The first day he kept
the fish out of the bowl for one hour. The second day, for two hours; the third,
for three hours, and so on until it would live in the air for a day at a time.
One day the man was walking over a bridge, while the fish, which had be-
come very fond of its master, followed close behind. But oh, the pity of it — the
fish slipped, fell off the bridge into the river and (sniff, sniff) drowned.

Two boys were boasting about their rich relatives. Said one: "My father
has a big farm in Connecticut. It is so big that when he goes to the barn on
Monday morning to milk the cows he kisses us all goodby, and he doesn't get
back until the following Saturday."
"Why does it take him so long?" the other man asked.
"Because the barn is so far away from the house."
"Well, that may be a pretty big farm, but compared to my father's farm
in Pennsylvania, your farm ain't no bigger than a city lot!"
"Why, how big is your father's farm?"
"Well, it's so big that my father sends young married couples out to^the
barn to milk the cows, and the milk is brought back by their grandchildren."

"Is this the speedometer?" asked the pretty girl, tapping the glass with
"Yes, dear," he replied.
"And that's the clutch?"
"That's the clutch, darling," he said, jamming en the brakes to avoid a
fast approaching taxi.
"But what on earth is this?" she inquired, at the same time giving the
accelerator a vigorous push with her foot.
"This, dear," he said, in a soft, celestial voice, "is Heaven." And picking
up a harp he flew away.

Two ardent fishermen were sitting back-to-back in a boat, and sport
being rather slow, they both fell into a half doze. One overbalanced and went

Lightly turns from "may and can,"

And she'll work around and sing,
But it's just as good as certain
She will marry in the Spring.
It's easy enough to look pleasant,
When the Spring comes along with a rush;
But the fellow worth-while
Is the one who can smile
When he slips and sits down in the slush.
