EORGE MORRIS PHILIPS, Ph.D.,LL.D., Prindpal .,f tlie Stale N..mial School , West Chester, Pennsylvania, 

widely known and esteemed as an educator, is descended fmni an did Chester County family. In 1755, Joseph 

I'hilips emigrated with his family from Wales to this count r)- and settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania. His 

great grandson, John Morris Philips, born in Chester County, married Sarah Jones, also a native of the county, 

being a daughter of Judge Thomas Jones, whose ancestors in 171- had also emigrated here from Wales. 

George Morris Philips is the son of John Morris and Sarah (Jones) Philips, and was Ixirn in 1851 at Penningtonville 
(now Atglen), Chester County, Pennsylvania. He is thus descended from the sturdy Welsh stock noted, especially, for its 
physical and intellectual vigor, strength of character and intense patriotism. Three sons of Joseph Philips served in the colonial 
army during the Revolutionary war; the second son, John, from w honi Dr. Philips derives his title as a member of the Order 
of the Sons of the Revolution, was first lieutenant in the Chester County battalion. The father of Dr. Philijis was a 
man of great influence in the communitv bec-;use of his valuable personal qualities, and his mother was a woman of rare 
Christian graces and mental endowments, who lived to the advanced age of eighty-three years, honored and beloved by all 
who knew her and felt the warmtli of her kindlv nature. It has been said that ance'^try renders a good man more illus- 
trious. While the truth of this may be conceded, the converse is equally capable of demonstration, that a good man may add 
new lustre to a noble ancestry. 

The boy, George Morris Philips, received his elementary education in the schools of the neighborhood and prepared for 
college at the local academy conducted by Professor William E. Buck, to whom Dr. Philiiis often refers with gratitude and 


esteem. At the age of sixteen _vears, he was aihnitted tu Lewisburg' (now Biicknell) Uni\ersity and tonk higli rank in 
all his classes, graduating with honors, in 1871, in the classical course, witli the degree of A. B. 

Immediately after his graduation, he was offered the professorship of natural sciences in the West Chester State Nor- 
mal School, then just opening its doors. Ijut was obliged to decline it, as he had already accepted the professorship of 
mathematics in Alonongahela College, Jefferson, Greene County, Pa. Despite the difticulties incident to the building up of a 
new colleo-e, which would have disheartened one of less heroic mould, Professor Philips achieved marked success there, the 
earnest of greater achievements yet to follow. He had intended, eventually, to enter the legal profession, but not being 
able to "shun his manifest destinv," the teaching ])rofession still claims him. The gain to the legal profession would un- 
doubtedly have been very great, but the events of the last thirty years pro\-e conclusi\ely that the educational world W( mid ha\e 
suffered a proportionately serious loss. 

It is interesting and significant to note here that Dr. Philips has been in the thought of the various boards of trustees of the 
\\(ist Chester State Normal School from the beginning until now, a period of nearly forty years. Though he was obliged to 
decline their first offer, the l)i)ard did not lose sight of him. unanimously tendering him in ?^Iarch. 1S73. the pro- 
fessorship of higher mathematics, which was accepted, and the school felt the charm anil impulse of his scholarly and enthusi- 
astic teachin,g for more than five years. In 1878, to the keen regret of the West Chester people, he resigned to accept the 
professorship of mathematics, natural philosophy and astronomy at Bucknell Uni\-ersity. 

Si.\ months before, he had married Elizabeth ^Marshall Pyle, the acconiplished young woman who taught instru- 
mental music and J'rench in the State Normal Sclnjol and whi>, thanks to a kind I'roxidence, still presides o\-er his household 
with dignity and grace and is a zealous and efficient wurker in musical, literary, temperance and social circles connected with 
the school, the church and the community. It mav l)e mentioned here, also, with special interest that two children have 
been born to Dr. and Mrs. Philips. Both graduated from the Normal School and afterwards from higher institutions, 
William Pyle Philips, now a promising young attrirney of New York City, from Ha\erford College. Harvard L'ni\ersity and 
the Harvard Law School, and Sarah Elizal)eth Philips, from V'assar College, where her talent as a singer soon brought her 
into prominence. 

The trustees of the West Chester State Normal School still kept Prof. Philips in mintl, and in 18S1 elected him principal of 


the scliodl. Biickntll was natiirall}- luatli \n ])art with one of her youngest and most distinguished professors, but he deemed it 
the call of duty to embark in the larger undertaking, accepted the principalship and, August the first, entered upon its duties and 
upon what was, indeed, destined to be a distinguished career of service. 

Dr. Philips will thus soon complete thirty-five years of service in the school, and round out a memorable term of thirty 
years as principal, and the school that has felt liis guiding hand for this long period is now in the forefront of kindred institu- 
tions. The number of students has increased from two hundred and forty to more than nine hundred enrolled this vear ( iqio), 
and the cost of the numerous l)uildings and equipments of the Xornial School |)lant has reached $750,000. The graduates 
of the school have, ir. the main, followed teaching as a profession, and are to be found in all grades, from tlic i)rimary school to 
the university, while hundreds today are also filling honorable iiositions in a score of other professions antl useful vocations 
and, years after graduation, whatever their occupation may be. they ha\e freely conceded that they cannot properly estimate 
the value of the inspiration ihev received from personal contact with l.)r. Pbili])s. who, either as teacher or adviser, spurred 
them to put forth their best efforts and seize every opportunity for self-improvement. 

While the chief concern of Dr. Philips is the great school of which he is the head, he has in every way possible lent his aid 
to advance general educational interests. He is in constant demand in Pennsylvania and other States as an institute instructor 
am! lecturer. His subjects, drawn from his varied experiences of the past forty years, co\er a wide range. In 1888, he vis- 
ited the Pacific Coast, and has visited Europe three times, seeing most of the western and southern jjarts of it. He observed 
schools of all grades, met many distinguished men and is now delivering valuable and entertaining lectures based upon what 
he saw and heard, but he has the happy faculty of making an address on arithmetic, comets, business methods or how we elect 
a President of the United States as interesting as a lecture on London, Italy or the Vello^vstone Park, He is, perhaps, more 
widely known as an author of te.xt-lKioks. In collaboration with President Sharpless of Haverford College, he has written 
te.xt-books on .Vstronomy and Natural Philosophy. These, together with his own works on the Civil Government of Penn- 
sylvania and the Geography of Pennsylvania, and his most recent publication, "Nation and State," have had a wide use. The 
last-named work is especiallv in demand, because of the comprehensiveness, directness and luciditv of statement that character- 
ize its pages, as well as all of Dr. IMiilips's addresses, lectures, magazine articles or class-room explanations. .\s fiu'ther evi- 
dence of his worth to the cause of education, it is notewortliv that Dr. Pliilips is a member and secretar\' of the .State Educa- 


tional Commission appointed Ijv Governor Stuart to draft a new code of laws for the schools of the State; he is a nieniher of 
the board of trustees of Bucknell Uni\-ersit\', of ihe College and L'niversity Council of PennsyK'ania and of the Baptist lulu- 
cational Society. He was president of the State Teachers' Association of Pennsylvania in 1891, an.d in 1894 was vice-presi- 
dent of the National Educational Association of the United States, and again in 1908, and since 1808 he has been a member 
of its Council. 

In local enterprises, Dr. Philips bears his full share of resjinnsiljilit}-. He is president of the Chester County Historical 
Society, second vice-president of the Dime Savings Bank of Chester County, a director of the National Bank of Chester County, 
and a member of the board of managers of the Chester County Hosjiital. .\t the time of the West Chester Centennial celebration, 
he was chairman of the Invitation Committee, and was able to secure Dr. Charlton T.Lewis to deliver the oration. On the occasion 
of the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the Republican party in Chester County, Dr. Philips was chairman iif the Reception 
Committee, and aided in arranging and carrying out a program in which former Vice-President Fairbanks and other dis- 
tinguished persons took part. Dr. Philips is a member of the First Baptist Church of West Chester, in which he has filled va- 
rious official positions, and his advice and counsel have always been sought and cheerfully given in all matters connected with 
the spiritual and temporal welfare of the church and congregation. It would seem that the "busier he is. the more leisure he 
has," and during the last thirty years he has filled numerous other positions in borough, county or state, l)ut the activities 
already mentioned show the versatility of his genius, the scope i.if his knowledge, the confiilence reposed in him by his fellnw- 
men and the willingness he always displays to serve their best interests. 

That Dr. Philips is thoroughly devoted to the upljuilding of the State Normal School, is anipl}- attested by the fact that he 
has consented to remain as its head for such a long ])eriod. It is not generally known that his election to the principalship of 
this school in 1881 was almost simultaneous with a similar electimi in the Indiana (Pa. ) State Normal School. It is gratify- 
ing to record that his choice then has been his deliberate preference ever since. In 1888, he declined the presidency of Buck- 
nell University, in 1890 the position of state superintendent of public instruction, and in 1910 the tender of the presidency of 
Girard College. He has refused other overtures to enter college work anil has resisted flattering calls, not publicly km.iwn, 
from institutions of high standing and primiinence. 

That Dr. Philips is the right man in the right i)lace, is shown only by the phenomenal growth of the school in point of 


numbers and material equipment, but also by the esteem, admirati(jn and luyal support of his teachers. In 1901, when he had 
completed twentv-five vears of service in the school, including- uventy years as principal, the faculty tendered him a compli- 
mentary banquet and presented him with a ln\ino- cup. The alumni of the school also showed their affectionate regard for 
him, wiicn he had completed t\venty-fi\ e years as principal, by presenting him with his portrait, painted by the famous artist, 
William T. Smedley, a native of Chester County. Temple University, of Philadelphia, conferred upon him the honorary de- 
gree of LL.D. His alma inatcr had already, in 1874, made him ;. Master of Arts, and ten years later, a Doctor of Thilos- 

To those who knew Dr. Philips best, the causes of his notalile success are an open secret. Endowed with a rare measure 
of common sense, personal dignity and powers of endurance, his practical wisdom, his ability to discern and his courage and 
fearlessness to advocate what is genuine, substantial and vital, his detestation of shams, and his unswerving integrity, coupled 
with his dominant conviction that hard, persistent toil is the best talisman, and his halnt of doing everything when it ought to be 
done and of ininimizing ditticulties and jiersiinal discomforts, stamp him not merely as a man of thought, but preeminently 
as a man of action, wlio proves that work is possiljle liy strenuously setting about it, making even the timidity and irresolu- 
tion of others pay contribution to his strong and skilful initiative, and who thus, as a leader, secures the best results from his as- 
sociates by the virility of vigonuis e.xample rather than by the persuasiveness of uncertain precept ; added to these personal 
traits, his large experience in dealing with men and measures makes him a man in whom trust can safely be reposed by those 
who wish to have tlieir interests receive prompt and proper consideration, whether they lie in the direction of the education 
of children, the investment of the capital of a bank, the writing of a new code of school laws or the care of the sick in a hos- 
pital. With Dr. Philips industry is, indeed, a Christian obligation. While the fairest fruit of this is a great institution, not 
the least is a valuable library of volumes ( the second largest in the United States ). collected at odd intervals, bearing the sig- 
natures and sentiments of authors from all cpiarters of the globe. Dr. Philips, too, is a close reader of current literature, to 
which he is also an occasional contributor. He is affable and cordial in manner, a fine conversationalist, fond of humor, having 
himself an appropriate anecdote for almost any occasion and, w'ith all his achievements, he is modest and unassuming. Thus, 
by the force and graciousness of his engaging personality, he attaches to himself a host of loyal friends, whose good qualities 
he commends, but whose faults and foibles he prefers to pass over lightly. 


It remains to be said that the l)ent of Dr. Philips's mind is distinctively judicial, thus fitting him not only to see both sides 
of a question and give them due weight, but also to anticipate probable objections to any suggested line of procedure. His 
conclusions are, therefore, urged with an aggressiveness and tenacity, compatible only with such breadth of view and far- 
sightedness. This (|ualily of mind, while affnrding a valuable hint as to how he wnuld ha\e served the state i)r nation, had he 
entered the legal profession and been invested with the ermine, becomes an invaluable and well-nigh indispensable factur in the 
administration of a great institution, in which a faculty "f fortv members, a student-biuly numbering nine hundred 
pupils and a board of trustees made up of able and progressi\e men are constantlv locking t" him for suggestion, advice, 
or reciimmendation, so that the interests of teachers, students and the comnumitv alike may be suitably safeguarded, and the 
success of the school may not be jenpardized, because of a low intellectual or moral standard, nr liecause of financial embar- 
rassment. It must be apparent, therefore, that Dr. I'hilips has the confidence of the board of trustees, as a wise 
manager, as he has served them for nearly thirty years, and it is e(|ually manifest that parents him implicitly and ap- 
prove of his careful ])olicy, since, each year, in increasing numbers, they send their children to him and his associates to lie edu- 
cated, and the entire harmony in the faculty, together with the sympathetic attitude of the ])rincipal towards the various de- 
partments of instruction, deepens the feeling, year by year, that it is a jirivilege and a pleasure to labor under him. 

1 he perspective is too short to do more than scant justice to the man, George Morris Philips, or his work. It is no idle 
retrospective dream to venture the assertion that, had he included a political career with the prosecution of law (his fellow- 
citizens would have maile it inevitable), his sterling (pialities of mind and heart, added to his well-known genius for executive 
direction, would ha\e insured him eminence in the go\ernmental councils of stale an<l nation ami, ha\ing filled the usual 
t-Hn-z/.v //((/if'/'i/;;/ of his native state, he would ha\e been a formidable and probabK- successful candidate for any ]iosition to 
which he might have as])ired. 

But it may be true that, by instilling right principles of thought and action into the minds of the thousands of vouug men 
and young women who ha\e come under his ])ersonal care during the past forty years. Dr. I'hilips has exerted a wider influence, 
perhaps at a personal sacrifice, and has done more to better existing conditions and stinnilate human societv to a keener percep- 
tion of the highest good, than he could have done in any other avenue of iniblic ser\ ice and, as he is yet in the full vigor of his 



manhood, it is earnestly hoped that he may be spared many years yet as the honored and beloved Principal of the school that 
ninst seem largely his own creation and has become under his able direction such a potent factor in the educational world, 
which still needs his virile and expert leadership.

"1 lie first III glory iis the first in />/(U"r." 

Elsie is a studious girl, holding her 
own in every subject. She seems to 
have special aptitude for German, in 
which she has taken the full course 
given here. From her records, it seems 
that the first shall not always be last. 
Elsie seems very quiet, but when one 
gets acquainted with her, he learns that 
she IS jolly enough.

A very merry maiden is this, with

and in her society. Jennie's aim is to 
lake a course in elocution after she has

Arthur is well fitted to be our Class 
President. His honor is not only fit-

sides being an enthusiastic class officer, 
lie is a hard worker, an earnest mem-

This fair maiden is one of our best. 
She is faithful and painstaking in her

a merry lass. Chemistry and Latin

"'Tis industry siif'f^orts us nil." 

Imogene is the daughter of Rev.

her religious duties here as she has 
been at hoirie. "Imogenus." as she is 
kni^wn to her best friends, is w'ell

cause of her industry', reliabilit\', and 
fine manner she holds a high place in 
the opinion of all.

"She could be made to laugh at aiiylhiiig.'' 

This lassie travels back and forth 
from Brandywine Summit, every day, 
braving all kinds of weather. They 
say that "Polly" is overfond of sleep, 
but if she is, she does not show it. 
She and Marjorie are great friends, and 
for some unaccountable reason they 
scarcely ever miss a basket-ball game. 
Pauline took her part well in the Mid- 
dle Year Recital.

This jolly little suffragette, "Beany,"

Elizabeth is a Bucks County tjirl, 
and a very good representative at 
that. She is ciuite a favorite with all 
who know her: for her disposition is 
unusually happy. "Beth" has been 
with us for quite a while, and thus 
have we grown to know her, and to 
have high regard for her. She in-

We all know Eleanor to be one of

she is very sedate and serious. "Nell" is 
quite a favorite with the boys, as one 
may see by careful ( ?)observation. She 
is a good scholar, and because of her 
having had successful experience in 
teaching, she loks forward to a prom-

In the Christian Association work she 
is \'ery active, and her inHuence is felt

"Poll," who belongs to the "Mid-

classmates. We don't know whether 
her interest centers more in a student

From the fact that Elsie's father is a

that proves this rule, she is that excep-

Hannah is the jolliest student in the

N the writino' nf a liistorv it seems custnmary tn puiiil mit tlie sigiiiticant ratlier than the merely c(ins|)icurius from 
the mass of liistiirical detail. I'orliinate. then, is the histnrian if thi' cons])iciions e\ents are in most part the signifi- 
cant. Such are those of the class of 1910. 

On the ninth of April, 1908, this class was organizeil, haxing- then about iwn hunilred memlx-rs. According to 
the must authenticated sticiitiju' predictions, the disruptinn is scheduled to occur about June 23, 1910. 

l'"or one to sav what fcirces cmispireil to bring trio-ether this seemingly heterogenous mass would be ipiite impossible. 
How we were cemented intu one conglomerate whole by the pressure brought to bear upon us by our honored faculty is what 
concerns us more es])ecially in these lines, l-'rom childhood the class of 1910 has been eminent for strength in the \arious lines 
of school activity. Whether the test was mental or physical, she has alwa\"s been in the frcmt. Who can forget that we were 
\ictiiriiins in bnth inter-class athletic meets iluring 1910; the highest indi\ idual honors being' awardeil, in buth instances, to 
members of (>(/r class — Enn-e\- and Schaaf. Or wlm fails tn recall our success in basket-ball, when we were easy winners of 
e\-ery game in a series with our friends, the Middlers. 

Active work began for us, as Aliddlers, about September 6, 190S. It was then that mu' ranks were swi>llen tn the amaz- 
ing extent of two hun<lrcd fnrt\' members. Even at this stage of our development, class spirit was at high tide. Imagine 
the consternation oi the "Ri/^-sazi' goiii^" when on the niDrning nf their trip to Washington thev saw flapping in the breeze, at 



the top of the flag-p<ile, the llnwinp banner (if 1910. Their consternation grew to fury, which knew no bounds, when they 
found that the rope had been cut and that they WDuld be forced to take their departure, leaving us masters of the situation. 

But this, the middle vear nf our snjnurn at school, was an importani one fmm the fact that our ideals became fixed and the 
sphere that each imlix idual was In 1 iccup\- during the following \ear was. in most instances, determined. From early in Sep- 
tember, 1909, dates the ex'entful epoch of this history; for it was then we became known by the dignified epithet — Seniors. 
What a weight of responsibility was shifted to our shoulders, and how gladly was it received and borne by us! With all the 
customs and traditions of the schiml tu be upheld, with the cnnslant demand fnr those who take the iHiliati\e and w ith the 
tremendous weight of work. sin-el\- "These are times that try men's souls." lUit able leaders, whose first interests were for the 
class, haye neyer been wanting, so that not only haye we upheld the established customs of our school but also opened new 
a\'enues of activity. Convincing evidence of our aggressive spirit is found in the fact that the" Palhfiiuirr" is the first book of 
its kind representing this institution. 

School life is not all work, liul a ba]i|i\' intermingling of both work ;ind |)lay, .\t least ii'c thought so last January when 
enjoying the Senior Sleigh Uide. With the "cuscs" in one sleigh and the chajjerons ( ?) in the otlier. what a "glorious" time 
we had. 

Throughout this vear the school ha.-, been constantly grow ing larger, w hile we. as a class, have steadily grown smaller, but 
smaller in numbers onh'. We mav still boast of two bundred and tliirteen memliers — the largest class that has ex'er been grad- 
uated from the West Chester State Normal School. 

Thus is briefly told the history of the faithful. Each class in its career achieves some distinction and brings something of 
honor to "Old Xormal." But the greatest in renown and the one most distinguished in the annals of the history of this school 
will e\er be the dear old class of 1910. B. L. F.

APPY is thai peoiile whose annals are brief." Tliis is the happy state of the Class of Nineteen Hunilred Eleven. 
( )iir histor^• will s;row as years pass. We donht if nur happiness will exceed the jHy we are experiencing- from our 
wiirk and ])la\- at the good old Normal. 

Has it ever occurred to you that the Middle Year Class occupies the most comfortable position in the school? 
We can look back to our former successes and forward to the possibilities of the future. \\'hile the Junior 
Class is just "getting; its sea legs on," and the Senior Class is abmit to "reef its sails," we are the only ones who are sailing 
along calnilv in our godd ship, the West Chester Normal. 

Our organization has been characterized by sturdy class spirit from the beginning. With great enthusiasm we met in 
Recitation Hall early in the spring of 1909, and elected the following officers: Edgar G. Bye, President: Homer \\'. Teamer. 
Vice-President: Ethel Pierson, Secretary: Evelyn Saylor, Treasurer. In the foUowins' meetings of tho spring term we 
chose for class colors <);•(;);,{,'(- and 7c7n7('. and drew up a Constitutntii in. Here we showed our originality l^y haxing a cop\- 
printed for each member — something no otlu-r class has yet done. 

We have since, bv unanimous consent, changed our colors from orange and white to turquoise and black, which certainly 
represent the spirit of our class better. Black with us represents strength and sober determined effort, and tin-quoise. the 
lighter side (if our nature, beaiitv and gavetv. \\'e are willing to let our class banner and pennant, emliodying these colors, 
speak for themselves. We have also changed our class flower from th.e ?\Iock Orange Blossom to the "real" White Carnation. 
State Board examination marked the end of the first epoch and the beginning of the second in our history. This was a 
hard battle, but we faced it bravely and won without the loss of a man. We showed our class spirit when on the c\ening of 
vocal music examination we gave our class yell very lustily indeed. On this occasion, too, we .showed our apjireciation of 
kind services by presenting our teachers. Miss Hardee and Aliss Crops}-, with flowers. 


In atliletics the class of 1911 gives promise of a bright future. At the inter-chiss meet on W'avne b'ield, last autumn, we 
were only one point behind the Seniors. In our base-ball games with the Seniors we were beaten l)v onlv a narrow margin. A 
series of basket-ball games were played lietween <iur team and the Seniors. In the first two games the Seniors won, Init only by a 
few points and after hard work. The less said about the third game the better for our histury. In all the games our men 
never lacked hearty cheering from the gallery. 

These seem to be the most important events in (lur career ; antl yet, at second tin )nght, we must ci include that the part of 

our history most worthy of mention must write itself: it is our every-day work. The lines written on our lives by daily 

work will praise us long after this little history is forgotten. So let us w^rk as we keep in mind the wurds of our motto, 

"Learn to live and li\'e to learn."

T lias heen tlie custom for man}- years for the Junior class at the West Chester State Normal School to orfanize at 
the heginning of the Spring Term. The class of 1912 held a meeting April 5, 1910, with a memher of the Faculty 
jiresiding At this meeting the necessary officers were elected. I'hat we might be on an equal footing with the 
other classes in respect to colors, class flower, and motto, committees were appointed who should make recom- 
mendations to the class, bearing on these matters. After careful consideration the class finally selected old rose and black for 
colors, the beautiful La France rose for the class flower, aud "To tlie stars through difficulties," as the motto. 

Our record in athletics is not yet well estalilished, though we can prophesy as to the future; and judging by the spirit 
shown in other lines of school activity, we know that the class of 1912 will not lag in school sports. Our strenoth in this direc- 
tion first displayed itself in the inter-class field meet, when our track team won second place. A few days later our Ijase-ball 
team, in a game with the Middlers, defeated their team. We hope to have a strong basket-ball team next year, and it should 
be a comi)arati\ely easy matter to organize one, for we have a large class, much promising material, and our boys are taking 
much interest in athletics. Our girls' liasket-ball team, although winning no games, was not defeated because of the lack of 
skill, for in every game it (ilayed well. 

We are very sure that the class of 191J is composed of the kind of material not only indispensible here at school, but 
needed everywhere in the world as well. Marion E. Head

HE Moore Literary Society was organized in the fall of i8~i, the same year in which the Normal School was first 
iipencd. i\t the first regular meeting', called September 30, 1871, Thomas S. Butler, now Congressman of the 
Sixth District, moxed that the organization lie given the name of "Moore Literary S(_iciety," in honor of Dr. W'm. 
E. Moore, then President of the Board of Trustees of the Normal School, and pastor of the First Preslmerian 
Church of West Chester, a man of prominence in educational and literary matters. The colors decided upon were garnet and 
gold, and the motto, "Scire est rcgcrc." In December of that year the first books were bought, to which others were added 
from time to time, and three years later a resolution was adoi)tecl ti> the effect that the books then belmiging to the Society 
should be placed in the care of the school. Thus the foundation was laid for the fine library that the school now owns. 

In l^'ebruary, 1873, a year after its founding, the Moore Literary Society held its first anniversary, and continued to hold them 
in each succeeding February until 1888, when the date was changed to December; for some years past, however, they ha\'ebeen 
held in Octcjber. The Society published at each anniversary the Moore Literary Gazette which, w ith the Aryan Re\iew. 
merged into The Amulet, thus making a school paper in w hich both Moore and .\ryan Societies were represented. The .\ninlet 
is published monthly during the school year; a special numlier is (le\ote(l to each Society at the time of its .\uni\ersary. 

A charter was granted the Moore Literary Society in 1880, thus making it a corporation, and at that lime the only incor- 
porated literary society in Chester County; it lias since grown steadily in membership and intluence.

'JHi8tor\> of the Hr\>aii Socict\? 

^^ X tlie early fall of 1879. ^t the suggestion of Prof. George L. Maris, then Principal of the West Chester State Xor- 
I ^ nial School, a nnniber <:if stiulents met for the purpose of organizing a new literary society, as it was felt that the 
ft) school and the Moore Literary Society alike would profit by the spirit of emulation which would naturally be 
aroused by a second organization similar to the first in its aims and interests. Dr. C. B. Cochran was elected 
president, and Miss Mary Speakman, secretary. The next meeting, which took place the following week, was called a business 
meeting. Its special purpose was the choosing of a name for this newly organized society. There vyere three names pro- 
posed : "The Round Table Literary Society; fhe Bayard Taylor Literary Society," and "The Aryan Society." The last 

named was chosen on account of its meaning, which is excellent or honorable. After several meetings, the Constitution 
was adopted in full, and the paper of the society, called "The Aryan Review," was begun. The motto, "Finis coronal opns," 
was decided u|)nn. and the present colors, blue and gold, were chosen. These first meetings were private, and when the soci- 
ety began to hold public meetings the president and secretary resigned. The new president was Richard J. Phillips, of Ken- 
nett S(|uare, and the secretary. Miss Miriam Eyre, of West Chester. The program of the first public meeting was as follows: 

Chorus — Greeting Glee 

Reading and approval of the minutes of the previous business meetings. 

Recitation — "When My Ship Comes In" Miss Wollaston 

Instrumental Duet Messrs. Wollaston and Bartleson 

Essay — "American Humor" Miss Dnnlap 

Selected Reading — "Tale of .\lliambra" Miss lirinton 

Music — "Song of the Reapers" Mrs. Strickland 

Reading of The Aryan Re\'iew Mr. Pierce 




Chorus — "Isle of Beauty, Fare Thee Well." 

Debate — Resolved, "That brains have done more for our country than muscle." 
Affirmative — Mr. Pierce and Mr. Cornwell. 
Negatixe — Miss Bemus and Mr. Milan. 

The society began its existence witii thirtv-t\vo charter ni-mhcrs. Since that time the iuiml)er has nuiltiplied very rap- 
idly, so that at the present time its estimated membership is about 4.300. It has grown not tiuly in nunihers, but in lofty ideals, 
thus strengthening both itself and its individual members. 

The regular meetings of our society are held every other Saturday exening, at seven thirty, alternating with those of 
the sister society. These meetings are largely attended l)y the students a)id by the peo]jle of the \icinity who are interestd in 
educational cjuestions. Thev are both interesting and helpful. The tirst meeting of each term of the school year is a special 
meeting, arranged and given by the members themselves. These meetings are very profitable, being of the highest classical 
literary type. In May, the amiual meeting is held and is called the Aryan Reunion. To preside at this meeting a member of 
the .\lumni is chosen as honorarv president. Early in the history of the society the programs for these occasions were pre- 
pared by the students, but fer many years this plan has given way to that of securing a first-class lecturer, musician, or troup 
of entertainers. 

There are two itratorical contests held annually : one in which the young men participate, and the other, the young 
women. 'I'wo prizes are awarded in each instance to the first two selected by the judges as having the best orations. 

The .\rvan Societv offers to all its members an (opportunity to acquaint themselves with the Iiest parliamentary usages; 
and ]i\ means of its debates, orations, and essays affords training in ready, graceful, and forceful speaking and reading, 
which is of the greatest value not onlv in school life but in after life as well. It stands for literary culture, and its capital is 
in\'ested in books that contain thoughts "that better the brain, help the heart, and lift the life." It has placed a great number 
of books in the librarv. 

The belief of all loyal Aryans and of the school is that the society is a great literary benefit to all who attend its meetings. 
They broaden one's views on the different subjects which are debated, they develop one's artistic nature with their music, and 
brighten one with the humorous touches in their recitations. Oli\e R. G.\rton

Representatives nf our Association go to the Northfield Student Conference each year. Our Association has arranged 
with chfferent teachers for classes in Bible Study, and much good and effectix'e work is done in these classes. Teachers are pro- 
vided for each of the classes, and a change is made every thirteen weeks. The Association has been of great service in enrich- 
ing- lives and liringing forth the best that is in a voung man. 

Ever striving to "overcome evil with good," our Association is progressive in every line of thought, and in this movement 
our deep gratitude is due to the long-time President of the Association. Dr. F. H. Green. Its one great purpose is to introduce 
obedience to Paul's appeal, "Quit you like men ; be strong."

UR Association was oiganized in September, 1891, with Miss Elouise Mayham. now the wife of Dr. Lincohi Hul- 

ley, of Stetson University, Florida, as President. Miss Sarah S. Kirk, at present Bible Secretary of the 

\ . \\ . C. .\. (if Des Moines. Inwa, succeeded Miss Mayham, and under her most efficient leader.ship the Associa- 

tiiin became effecti\e in its work alun!; lines of Biljle study, and stond forth as one of the best student associations 

in the State. Then Mrs. I'oster H. Starkev, wife of our Vice- Principal, fnlldwed Miss Kirk as President. 

The work has I)roadened, the membership has ,orown, and the mis.-iionary offerings, which are given systematically, have 
Won tnr this Association a worthy place in our territory. Durin,g- the past few years, several new departments have been 
added tu our work, there nnw being Departments of ^lembership, Bible Study, Alissionary, Religious Meetings, Social, Inter- 
Collegiate, and Systematic (iiving for Missions. 

Under the departments a number of girls have been sent each year to one of the Summer Conferences. Those attending 
the last Conference at Mountain Lake Park. Alaryland, were the following: Ruth Henderson, Pauline Brosius, Adelaide Burge, 
^Marguerite Crispin, and Edith Megargee. 

W e are honored in ha\ing our President a member of the Territurial Committee of Delaware, Marvland, and Pennsylva- 
nia, and we feel that the present efficiency of nur Association is due to her lo\ing and loyal ser\ice to the girls uf our school. 
The present membership of the Association is two hundred ei,glitv. 

We are also glad to mention that an Alumni Circle has been formed, which for the past three vears has contributed one 
hundred dolkirs and more to the Industrial Work of our Territory, 

'1 he influence of our Association has been widespread, several of our number having been called to positions bv the Na- 
tional Board, and graduates serving as members of Boards for several city associations. The officers for the vear 1909-T0 
are: President. Mrs. F. H. Starkey: \'ice-President. Pauline Brosius : Recording Secretary, Hannah Cramer ; Correspond- 
ing Secretary, Edith Megargee. The effort of the .Vssociation has ever lieen "To meet the spiritual needs of all students bv 
providing meetings which shall help in the u|)building of their Christian li\es, and t(j afford training for future usefulness as 
lenders in Christian work." Edith Meg.\rgee

XT is impossible not to recognize the cliaiin and influeiice of nnisic wherever it exists and in whatever form it may 
be. Consciously or unconsciously, the charm is felt and the influence exerts itself, often in unexpected ways 
and places. Perhaps the gond it does is sometimes overestimated, hut if it awakens the better nature in onl>- a few, 
produces some purer, nubler thoughts, makes a sorrow a little lighter, or a life a little sweeter, it is still wcirthv ijf 
the highest praise. This art has not been neglected in our schixjl. 
The music department is now quite extensive and progresses each year. The piann department is under the guidance of 
IMiss Charlotte N. Hardee. The aim of the piano department is to cultivate and develop a taste for good music, and to teach the 
student to recognize and express, through the medium of the keyboard, musical thoughts and ideas ccintained in piano forte 
compositions. Private recitals are given throughout the year to give the student confidence in playing before others. The ad- 
vanced students have opportunities for jierformances at the public recitals and at the meetings of the literary societies. 

The work in voice culture is developed along the lines of advanced and progressive methods. The aim is to give a well- 
]ilaced. flexil)le, and resonant voice, and the use of such developed voice in S';)ng singing, both executive and interpretive. 

Outside of the individual voice cultiu'e, there is the work of the Junior Class. Their work has been of particular merit 
this year. Thev sing a great deal in unison, but they enjoy, especially, their rote songs. They gave several of these at one of 
the recitals this year. This class work is to give the students an idea of bow to teach music in their schools. 

Both of our societies can boast of g(jod choruses. These choruse-; lia\e rendereil all through the year some of the most 
pleasing parts of our Saturday evening programs. The Ar^-ans are cjuite proud of their girls' and boys' quartettes, while the 
Moores have combined theirs into a double quartette : the two orchestras have also added much to our meetings. This year 
the orchestras have done their l)est work, and early arrivals to the meetings are well entertained. 

Twelve of our boys have formed a glee club, and have tlone themsehes and their leader much credit. Their good work 
has not been without recognition, as they have made several engagements to sing in the town. But our girls were not to be 
over-shadowed ; they have formed a ladies' quartette that is a marked feature of the music departiuent. They meet twice 




a week to study orchestral works, which are performed at the different recitals. These renderings are often accompanied by 
explanatory remarks, which help to broaden their knowledge and appreciation of the musical world. 

On November sixteenth, the quartette, consisting of Mrs. G. Al. Philips, Airs. Wm. C. Husted. Miss C. N. Hardee, and 
Miss I. E. Cropsey, played the Slaves' March, by Tchaikawski. Outside of its being splendidly rendered, it was of particular 
interest, as it contains the Russian national song, the air of which our school has adopted for its song. 

Our music of this year has been greatly enriched by two well known luusicians. The first of these was Madame Mariska 
Aldrich, who sang here on October twenty-third. Every one enjoyed her exquisite voice, and felt that her program was only 
too short. Our next musical treat was given by Madame Olga Saiuan iff. Her presentation of several of the famous compos- 
ers delighted all who heard her. We feel that we have been fortunate in being able to hear these two artists. They gave us a 
hio-her appreciation of good music, cheered, and gave us lighter hearts to take up our duties again. So, is not music worth 
while ?

1 I I'.X the call for candidates came in Ocliil)er, tlie prospects of a win- 
uiug team in basket-ljall were not very hrii^iit. for we had lost three 
of last year's famous team Ijy graduation, only Schaaf and Emrey 
being left. But by the persistent work and coaching of Manager 
-\t\\ell ami Captain Emrey we again developed a cpiintette that made old 
Normal a team to be feared. And witli Holnian and I'almer at forward, 
Schaaf at center, Shore and Emrey at guard, we completed the season with 
the splendid record of nine g'ames won and three lost. 

(_)ur schedule during the season was by no means an easy one for our 
Normal boys. It included such teams as Williamson College, Penn. Fresh- 
men, Swarthmore College Reserves, Atlantic (,'ity High School. Coatesville 
High School, and Girard College. 

The prospects of next year's team are also bright, notwithstanding that 
all this year's team will Ije lost by graduation. In practicing against the Var- 
sity, a second team, composed entirely of underclassmen, was developed that 
won from some of the best reserve teams in this |)art of the country.

Base 36aU 

HE base-ball season has just started, and it is liard to say at this 
writing- what kind of a season we will have. A large crowd of 
candidates are daily at work on Wayne Field fighting for the 
positions made vacant by the graduation of six of last year's 
team. 'J'he men all around seem to Ije fieliling- we/I and hitting the Ijall 
hard. If they c(.)ntinue we look forward to finishing the season with a 
g'ood reciird. 

A, fine schedule has been arranged by our manager, and it includes 
some of the best inter-scholastic base-ball teams to be found. The hardest 
games we expect are witli Central High School of I^hiladelphia, and Wil- 
liamson College. One advantage tliat our team will lia\-e, is that the ma- 
jority of the games will be played on our home diamond. Coach Cam- 
eron and Captain Shore anticipate a successful season.

CHE Senior Class hail link- trunl)le in ■■hnidins.'," the Inter-cla-^s cham- 
pionship for 19 10. for the only class that dared to face us on the 
floor was the Middlers, and they were tlicinjughly trounced in the 
three g-anies we played them. Befure we had arranged the series 
with the class of 191 1, there had been snme talk anmng a few of the Faculty 
athletes to play us a game, and indeed the_\' went sn far as to ])ractice for it, 
hut after the first game with the Middlers it was bard tn get one of their num- 
her to referee the other two contests. The first game of the series was 
played January 11, and resulted in a victory for the Seniors by a score of 21 
to 16. 

The second game was played January 25, and the Mid<llers promised to 
make things warm for us until the last five minutes of play, when with one 
[point lead the Seniors braced and finally won by a score of 23 to 19. Of 
course, when the third game was played the hope of winning the series was im- 
possible for the Middlers. )'et for a while they again promised to make things 
interesting, 1)ut it pro\-ed to I>e merely a game of Varsity against scrulis, and 
as a result the score stood 49 to i 2 in favor of the Seniors. 




^rittor laar fOall ^tatnry 

ill'^X tlie class of 1910 embarked its canoe on the Brandywine and 
sailed up to tiie Normal Greens, little liad we dreamed that we had such 
a hunch of athletes in (jur midst; and indeed it was not found out 
in our Junior year, as there was not such a keen rivalry on the ath- 
letic field as now exists, and as a result neither the '08 or '09 classes offered us 
a challenge in base-ball. But when we became dusty warriors entering the 
Middle \'ear work, we decided to see who was who and why, and offered a 
challenge to iilay any organized l)ase-ball team in the school. Of course this 
made the l-'aculty and class of '09 get busy, and as an outcome a series of games 
was arranged. 

The Faculty and class of '09 met first, and after nine innings of sensa- 
tional playing the distinguished professors trotted off victorious. So enthused 
were they o\-er their victory that when we met them e\ery lady of the Faculty 
appeared on the grandstand with a megaphone, pennant, and a lusty voice to 
cheer their comrades on. Finally the game started, and the first two innings 
looked like another \ictory for our pedagogues, but we got o\-er our stage- 
fright, and when the dust rolled away we could see our opponents' heads just 
above the snow drift. This gave us undisputed championship for 1909. 

This year our team will have i^ractically tlie same lineup as last, and our 
prospects for another championship are very good. 




laraity Srark ISfutpui 

NUMBER of ninil)le-footed boys are now out for practice daily for 
piisitions on the school's track team, and are being coached by our 
pliysical director. Dr. C. E. Ehinger, who will have the team en- 
tered in a number of track and field meets during tlie spring term. 
Our team has already entered in some of the best meets in the country, such 
as U. of P. relay races, April 30, and then Swarthmore, Glen Mills, Sharpies, 
The Artisan, and our own Inter-scholastic Meet on May 21.

€la$$ Basket Ball Games 

SERIES of inter-class basket-ball games was played this year. The 
first game, played on January 17, between the Juniors and Middlers 
resulted in a victory for the Middlers by the score of 27 to 3. 

The second game in the series, played h'ebruary 2, between tlie 
Seniors and Juniors was an exciting one. The Juniors, fearing defeat, worked 
hard for the game, but they were no match for us. The Seniors were confi- 
dent of success and the victory was an easy one. The score for this game was 
13 to 6 in favor of the Seniors. 

The final game was played March y. between the Seniors and Mjddlers. 
It was a hard-fought game, and finally ended in a defeat for us. This defeat, 
however, was not due to any weak playing by our team, but was due to the fact 
that two of our best players were absent and two Dthers had returned to school 
only one day previous to that on which the game was played and had no 
practice for six weeks. Xever-the-less our girls pla\ed well and, although we 
did not carry off the championship for this year, 10 10. we fully expect to make 
up f(jr our loss in the annual field meet, which will nccur in the late spring".

ilass iti the annual field meets in their Juninr and MidiUe years. 
The eighth annual field meet occurred May 29, 1909, on Wayne 
-i'leld and proved a grand success. The girls, under the direction of Mrs. 
Ehinger and Miss Davis, had been in preparation for the great event for some 
months past ; and when the time arrived, the day being a perfect one and the 
track being in the best of order, each girl felt ready to do her best, work for 
her class. There was much e.xcitenient, much cheering and waving of pennants 
from the grandstand when each representatix'e nf her separate class appeared 
to receive her number. 

At halt-past (ine the meet l)egan. .\t times it was iloulrtful by what class 
the honors would l)c won, and there was much counting of points. The girls 
of the class of 19IJ worked hard, the girls of the class of 1911 worked 
hard, the girls (.)f the class of 1909 worked harder: but the girls of the class of 
1910 worked hardest of all, and as a result, the first prize, a beautifully en- 
graved silver cup, was awarded to Anna Mathers, a member of our class. 
Anna is the "star" athlete of the class. Besides winning many honors in her 
Junior year, she broke the school record in the running broad jump, at 13 
feet I inch, in her iNIiddle Year: and no one has yet been found who is al)le 
to e(iual her. 

Susanna Kline. Myra McLaughlin, and Fanny Cassel also distinguished 
themseh'es in the 50 yards dash and won honors for our class. Great praise 
is due to all the girls for their interest and spirit in the work and greater praise 
is due j\lr^. l{liin<'er for her e-xcellent training.

There were once some rodents pedantic, 

Who rendered the students quite frantic, 

When they came to the classes, 

The terrified lasses 

Were sure that each mouse was gigantic. 

Cried the teacher in accents distracted, 
"Pray cease your gyrations protracted, 
Keep your eyes fixed on me. 
And then you won't see 
The pranks by these torments enacted." 

"They are seeking the crumbs of true learning, 
That you are continually spurning. 
If you'd work as do these. 
You would be just 'the cheese' 
And ever keep wisdom's lamp burning." — K. S.

Grateful acknowledgement is hereby made to all 
persons who have so generously helped to bring this 
pioneer movement to success. To them and to our adver- 
tisers we are under special obligations. To the former 
for their efforts represented in the foregoing pages, 
and it is largely through the liberal patronage of the 
latter, whose advertisements follow, that we are able to 
place in the hands of Normal's friends this volume of the 
"Pathfinder." As this annual does more than any other 
publication to keep the Normal School before the public, 
we sincerely hope that you will patronize the men who 
have made this publication possible. 

Again thanking them for their patronage, we are

The H^est Chester State Normal School 

HIS school was opened in 1871 astli; State Normal S;lool for the First District of Pennsyl- 
vania, comprising the counties of Chester, Delaware, Mjntgo nery and Bucks. It was 
founded by the joint efforts of the trustees of the West Chester Academy, which had been 

started in 18 12, and the citizens of West Chester and vicinity. 

West Chester is a town of about twelve thousand inhabitants, twent\-five miles west of Philadel- 
phia, with which it is connected by two lines of the Pennsylvania R. R. and by an electric railway, 
with half hour servic •, from the terminal of the Market street subway and elevated road. 

Its grounds are about fifty acres in extent, and it has si.x large and two smaller buildings. All of 
its school buildings are of green stone. Its faculty includes about forty teachers, and it enrolls nearly 
a thousand students annually in its normal department. 

Its graduates are teaching successfully in every part of the United States. Prospective students 
should enroll as long beforehand as possible, if they wish rooms in the school dormitories. 

For catalogs or other inJormation apply to

Win a Double 
W e I c o m e 
\V here Vou Go 

OU are going out from the West Chester Normal School — the foremost 
institution of its kind in Penns^'lvania, if not in the world. Vou will 
win a welco ne where you go, because you carry a welcome message — 
ti.e message, the knowledge, the efficiency which this great institution 
has condensed from long years of experience and has given you to use 
for the help and profit of others. 

With this message, you can cirry another equally as well fojnded and thus win 
for yourself a double welcome. Tlii^ other message will redound to your credit by 
adding material comfort to those to whoni you go, just as the first message redounds 
to your credit by adding mental improve. nent to those whom you teach. 

Tlie West Chester N rmal School and The Sharpies Cream Separator Factory 
have grown up side by side, on the same soil, each supreme in its sphere of useful- 
ness. The one ha.- made higher education possible and is sending you forth to teach 
it. The other has made dairying easier and more profitable and presents an oppor- 
tunity you can also teach 

While you taich the children the message 3-ou carry for their minds, teach the 
parents and elders the advantages and profits of using Tubular Cream Separators 
Lmd show that you bring them a message for the good of their purse. Thus you 
carry a double message, win a double welcome, earn a doubly secure hold where 
you go. 

Carry with you, where you go. a copy of our "Old Time Songs" — the songs the 
children love — and a copy of both our "Business Dairying" and our Catalog. All 
three free on request. Call or write for them.
