The New Girls' Dormitory. 

^dT OR SEVERAL years the authorities have very much 
fUi felt the need for a girls' dormilory in Monmouth but it 
4^^ was not until two years ago, when the Senate instructed 
the trustees to initiate a building campaign, that the mat- 
ter was taken up in earnest. The wisdom of the authorities was 
that the very latest type structure, tire-proof, and equipped with the 
most modern conveniences, was the only kind of a building worth 
while. To build such a building it was estimated that if one-half of 
the needed sum I $40,000) could be raised that the erection of the 
building could be started with perfect safety. Monmouth's many 
friends willingly responded to the opportunity for assistance and by 
March 1, 1913, more than $40,000 had been subscribed. 

.\rchitect D. E. Waid of New York City had completed the 
plans and bids on the construction work were called for. The con- 
tract for building was accordingly let to -Vpsey & Fusch, and (he 
plumbing to McCullough Harilware & Implement Co. Ground was 
broken -March SI, as soon as the weather permitted and the build- 
ing is now under way. 

The building is being erected on the northeast corner of the 
campus, facing Ninth street It will be very complete and of fire- 

proof construction throughout. It will be 45x163 feet, three stories 
in height, with a basement and sub-basement under the entire build- 
ing. A large dining room, accommodating 1-50 persons, kitchen, 
laundry, bakery and store rooms, as well as quarters for additional 
help, will be found in the basement. There will be in the building 
forty double rooms on the main floors. In addition to these there 
will be a hospital room, a suite for the dean, a suite tor the matron, 
a large reception hall, a sitting room and a chafing dish room. The 
third floor has on it a large gymnasium for the girls. Every room 
will be fitted for hot and cold water. There will be two large 
closets in each room, two bath-rooms on each floor and electric 
lights throughout. 

The dormitory is but another step forward in Monmouth's 
rai)id progress. It will be a new center for student life. It will 
furnish an ideal home for the girls. The dining room will be the 
family table of the school — the eating quarters of both boys and 
girls. The reception hall and the sitting room will be an attractivt 
meeting place for young men and women friends. The building 
will put a finishing touch on the beauty and attractiveness of our 
campus. If present plans obtain, it will be ready for occupancy 
early in the year 11114. 


The May Party, 1912. 


X E OF THE prettiest events of the college year is the 

-May Party which is held on the caminis in the latter part 

of May. All of the girls in the three lower classes take 

part in the drills. Many weeks are spent in preparation 

for this event and every effort is put forth to make it a success. 

The May Party of 1912 was held on the twenty-fourth of May 
on the campus, east of the Auditorium. Here a throne had been 
built and harmoniously decorated with white bunting and green 
boughs. A large space was fenced off in reserve for the drills and 
the guests — the faculty, the boys of the school and the Senior girls. 
Miss Helen McCorkle had been selected by the men of the 
college through a ballot taken in (he morning, to become Queen ot 
May. She was attended by the .Maid of Honor. iMiss Lois Barnes, 
and four small girls, .Martha Clendenin, Kachel Marshall, Virginia 
St. Clair and .Mary Burnett. 

■ The procession formed at the Carnegie Library Building and 
wound its way through the campus to the scene of the fete. The 
drill girls marched first and knelt in two long rows between which 
the queen-elect and her attendants marched to the throne. Here 
they were greeted by a May-song by the Girls' Chorus and Miss 
McCorkle was crowned Queen of the May by the Maid of Honor. 

Then came the scarf dance, a very graceful and attractive 
dance, followed by two very unique and picturesque drills, the Hun- 
garian Drill, and the .Japanese I'mbrella drill. The last and most 
looked for exhibition was the Maypole dance, an old time dance 
with many new and beautiful variations. 

The May Fete is one of the most beautiful ot the traditions 
of the school and each year marks a step toward making it a more 
attractive, beautiful and permanent institution.

Philo Annual Banquet. 

^^r HE PHILO Annual Banquet was held in the Colonial 
I 1 Hotel banquet room Wednesday evening, October IB, 1912, 

^^ in honor of the new men. The guests were received in the 
hotel reception parlors and here frappe was served from a 
cleverly arranged autumn booth. After a short musical program 
the guests proceeded to the banquet room where they found tables 
beautifully decorated in the society colors. After a bountiful ban- 
quet Ralph D. Kyle of the class of 1 DOS was introduced as toastmaster 
and showed himself an able leader in after-dinner wit.

Eccritean Annual Banquet. 

AN ECCRITEAN Reunion was held in connection with 
the Eccritean Peanut Banquet this year, which was ceie- 
hrated E^iday evening, November the first, in the banquet 
room of Wallace Hall. About four hundred invitations 
were sent out to the alumni of the society, and altho there were but 
a few who were able to come, many sent their regrets and assured 
the members that they would be there in spirit if not in person. 

The hall was decorated in red, white and blue streamers in- 
tertwined and mingled with the leaves of the autmun oak. Presi- 
dent Kritzer acted as toastmaster and caused much mirth by his 
witty remarks. Hon. T. H. Gault, '70, State Commander of the Illi- 
no isG. A. R., responded to the toast to the Old Eccriteans. The 
contest team in whose honor the banquet was held was announced:

Senior Day. 

Junior Spread, 


AT X O O N on February 22 the Senior class assembled in 
the gymnasium for Senior Day. This is the first time in 
the year when the Senior class assembles as dignified Sen- 
iors. The tables were decorated with miniature ships. 
Around the ships were icebergs which lowered the atmosphere of 
the room considerably. Following the delicious banquet served by 
Eliza Smith, was a toatst program carrying out the idea of the

hardly be termed a banquet, altho the quality of the food was prob-

Freshman Banquet. 

^^ HE FRESHMAN Banquet was held in the basement of 
I 1 Wallace Hall on the evening of February twentieth. The 

^^ occasion marked the second departure from the ancient 
customs. Last year the day passed by under the ban ot 
enforced peace. This year the traditional February twenty-second 
gave way to February twentieth. The event was in the nature of a 
baseball game. Much mirth and laughter was occasioned both by 
the rooters and the clever plays ot the team. 

After the feast of good things had been enjoyed the following 
unique toast program was given:

and the toast program was very clever.

Faculty Reception. 

Y. M. C. A. Banquet. 

^L^ PON T HE evening of December the eleventh one of the 
Jrl most enjoyable functions of the year was held. The occa- 
>^i^ sion was the annual reception given in honor of the stu- 
dents by the faculty. Practically the whole student body 
was present. The program consisted of several readings by Miss 
Helen McClanahan, and vocal numbers by .Miss Bessie Lloyd, and 
a mixed college quartette. A unique feature of the reception was 
the division of the guests into supper groups. This was done by 
requiring each person to sing a phrase of a well known melody. 
Those who had bars from the same piece formed separate groups. 
The reception has been looked back upon with a good deal ot 
pleasure by the students. 

Y. M. and Y. W. Joint Reception. 

The Y. .\I. and Y. W. followed tluir annual cusloin of giving 
an Informal reception to the new students on the first Saturday 
night of the school year in the Banquet room of Wallace Hall. Sev- 
eral students were put thru the mill and received their diplomas. 
There were music and games; light refreshments were served and 
each student started aright on the year with a handful of kisses. 


N THE evening of March 1, 1913, a banquet was given 
by the men of the school in honor of Dr. W. E. McCulloch 
of Pittsburgh, who was closing a series of meetings here 
and Rev. G. C. Vincent, who was soon to leave the city. 
.An excellent repast was enjoyed and then Jlr. Vincent made a de- 
lightfully entertaining speech. Dr. McCulloch gave a magnificent 
cutting from his lecture on Lincoln, which was very much enjoyed. 

The Lecture Course. 

.\s Monmouth College luid no lecture course, four of the 
members of the Senior class, John Kritzer, John McBane, Fred 
Stevens and Robert McBride, in company with Prof. Davis, took 
up a lecture course on their own initiative and secured a fine list 
of speakers. Lincoln McConnell, J. Jlerrit Driver, Senator FranK 
C Cannon, William Cady and Everett Kemp need but be mentioned 
to indicate the quality of the course, -\mong such a list of speakers 
it would be didlcult to select the best, but Everett Kemp is perhaps 
the most worthy of mention, for he certainly won the Jlonmouth 
audience with his recital, "The Music Master." 

Musical Events. 

The Artist Course. 

Other Musical Events. 

«^»r HIS YEAR ilonmouth has att'orded to its music lovers 
/ 1 and those who wish to cultivate a taste for the best music, 

^^^ ample opportunity to hear some of the excellent talent of 
the country. 
Prof. T. Merrill Austin, the director of the Monmouth College 
Conservatory, was indeed fortunate In procuring for the first num- 
ber of the series of Artist Recitals Silvio Scionti, the Italian pian- 
ist. His work was marked by its brilliancy and the enthusiasm 
with which he entered into it and bis technique was remarkable. 

Gustaf Holmquist, the Swedish baritone, appeared on the 
second recital. He pleased his audience particularly with his inter- 
pretation of the Swedish folk songs. 

The Pasmore Trio gave a most enjoyable ensemble concert. 
The trio are said to stand alone in the perfection of their ensemble 

The last number on the course was very successful. Miss 
Lamb as pianist displayed brilliant technical ability, versatility 
and a fine interpretation of her art. Dorothea North has a beauti- 
ful voice of great flexibility and dramatic power. 

The faculty recital rendered during the first of the year by 
Miss Thomas, piano, Miss Finley, violin, and Mr. H. Wylie Stewart, 
tenor, showed that Monmouth College might well be proud of her 
Conservatory Faculty. 

The Choral Society has given two excellent entertainments. 
At the winter concert, besides a miscellaneous program, the chorus 
sang Gades' beautiful .work, "The Erl King's Daughter." For the 
May Festival, Mrs. Mabel Sharp Herdien took the leading role in 
Mendelssohn's "Lobgesang." In the afternoon the Minneapolis 
Symphony Orchestra, assisted by a group of prominent soloists, 
gave a grand concert. 

Monmouth College also appreciates her orchestra, which, 
under the enthusiastic leadership of .Miss Blnley, has done splen- 
did work. The annual concert was greatly enjoyed. 

The Glee Club is almost a new organization. The "Home 
Coming" ended its second season of successful work. The program 
was characterized by some of the most beautiful as well as some 
of the most ludicrous songs and ballads. 

1862 1912 

Fiftieth Anniversary of the Second United Presbyterian Church of 

Monmouth, Celebrated October 20-27, 1912 

The celebration of a lialt-century's work by 
the Second United Presbyterian Church began with 
Communion Service on Sabbath, October 20. Wed- 
nesday evening was given over to an historical re- 
view of the Church in its various departments. On 
Friday evening a sumptuous Fellowship Dinner was 
spread in the Banquet Room of Wallace Hall, at 
which about four hundred were present. A resume 
of the Church's history, the outline of its present 
status and influence, and its prospect for the future 
were ably handled in the Toast Program. On Sab- 
bath, the 27th, a fitting close to the week's program 
was reached in the two anniversary sermons preach- 
ed by Rev. T. C. Pollock, D. D., of Philadelphia, a 
former pastor. 

Six able leaders comprise the list of those who 
have ministered to this congregation: 

Rev. Alexander Young, D. D., 18U2-1871. 
David A. Wallace, D. D., 18«2-18G8. 

I Co- Pastors. 
D. iM. Ure, D. D., 1S72-1S74. 
W. T. Campbell, I). D., 187.".-19(ll. 

Rev. Thomas C. Pollock, D. D., liioi-lllll. 

Rev. George C. Vincent, 1911-l!n:i. 

With full consent of the parent organization, the First 
Church, the Second Cliurch was organized October 2.'>, 1862, with a 



charter membership of twenty-one. During its fifty 
T| years of activity, the Second Church has received 
i,370 persons into its membership, the present mem- 
bership being 409. 

The congregation worshipped at first in the 
chapel of .Monmouth College, but in 1867 a frame 
building was erected, which was replaced in 1S79 by 
the present building. This is a red brick structure 
of two stories, with Sabbath School room on the 
first floor, and auditorium above. 

The Women's and Young Ladies' Missionary 
Societies, the Young People's Work and the Sabbath 

I School represent phases of church activity. The 
Second Church is represented on the foreign field 
by Rev. ,1. W. Ballantyne. as "foreign pastor" in 
India. Second Church likewise extends her influ- 
ence through t'lie ('(Hcient work being done by her 

j Uaushter Church, the Ninth .-\venue Congregation 
of Monmouth. 

Many, both of students and of alumai 
will cherish ibe memory of the Second Church as their church- 
home durlug college days. The Church, too, receives inspiration 
from the fellowship and enthusiasm of student workers.

The Freshman-Sophomore 
Pole Scrap. 

AFT K R several false alarms by tampering upper classmen, 
the president of the Sophomore class finally attached the 
colors to the pole and gave the Freshman president his 
one hour's warning at 5:11 Saturday morning, September 
21!, 11112. At tl:ll the Freshman forces were charging the defensive 
Sophomores clustered around the pole and at 6:15 the Freshman 
colors were floating at the top of the pole, while the Sophomore 
colors were fluttering down. The Sophomores were good scrappers 
but they were completely outnumbered and it was only an occa- 
sional outburst on the part of the Stewart brothers that made 
things interesting till time was called at 7:11. 

1' .\ C i: T w K N T V 


lyr I G H T Y-N I G H T is one of the time-honored ( ?) institutions 
i^ of the school. Each year on the rainy night which always 
immediately precedes the Girls' May Party, the Freshman 
and Sophomore boys get out their night garments and parade the 
streets, hold a Maypole dance of their own, etc. May 23. 1912, was 
the date of the last Nighty-night. It was a night long to be remem- 
bered — led by Pierce's German Band. But it was a howling success 
and the faculty dread i!s coming again. 

A Diary Picked Up in the

Sunday, IS — Church. Dinner at Habeiman's. Sted leaves in ninrn- 
ing. Best date of my life tonight. 

Monday, 17 — German today. Cot the roses, no date. 1 wonder what 
she is doing. 

Here the record remains unfinished. 
The tiger or the lady, which? 

Entered for (he candy by on-^ who has been there. 

1. .\n ice box sat upon a porch 

Within the sight of all. 
Temptation urges all the men 

To pay that box a call. 
The owner wakes some Sunday morn. 

And finds the box is clean; 
And now she says that College boys 

Are very, very mean. 

Chorus: — 

Swipity, swipity, swipe, swipe, swipe. 

To swipe is our delight. 
We lift the milk off every porch, 

iMost every other night. 
We limp with oysters and with fudge. 

And ice cream by the can. 
For swiping is upon the course 

Of Every man. 

2. Sure! .Mrs. Frantz has lots of fruit 

Beneath her cellar door: 
And when we bring her back the Jars, 

She'll fill them up once more, 
.lohn Henry owns n nice ice box. 

Killed full of cherry wine. 

(Contimifil on Seciiul I'.ikcI 

Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight. 

Swipety, Swipe. 


It pays to swipe from College profs; 
Come en, the swlping's fine! 

Chorus: — Swipity. swipity, etc. 

Now what's the use of spending cash 

On watermelons ripe. 
When you can roll them off some porch 

And lug them out of sight? 
So let us hurry hence away; 

We have a lively hunch 
That we can limp with just enough 

To feed this hungry bunch. 

Chorus: — Swipity. swipity, etc. 

Dear Fred: — 

The very idea of you writing such a song. You know very 
well that the student body doesn't approve of any such actions as 
you relate in that song. To think of even suggesting such actions 
to the boys of Monmouth College! If that is all the higher your 
standard of morals is. yon may just as well call oft everything that 
is between us. 

Yours disappointedly. 



To the New Dormitory. 

Like the coal trust loves the ground-hog, 

Like the rounder loves his stew. 

Like dear Izzy loves his jelly. 

Like Warfield lo^'es his chew, 

Like George Campbell loves his bed stead — 

Likes to sleep the whole day thru; 

Like old Black-hawk loves his math course, 

That's how old M. C. loves you. 

Like a barber needs his lather, 
Like we need three meals a day. 
Like Doc Sherrick needs oration. 
Like Red Barnes needs clover hay. 
Like Red Gardiner needs a clammer, 
Like a sleepy eye needs vim. 
Like B. Braiden needs a lawyer. 
That's how much we need a gym. 

Like Slats wonders what's the matter 

When the Calendar goes wrong. 

Like Spud wonders why the birthdays 

Come on off days all along, 

Like we wonder why Bill Cooper's girl 

Has switched from him to Dean, 

So Doc wonders where the coin is 

That's to build the Dorm this s|)ring.

Dear Dad; 

I hare a good job in sight for the summer. The agent tor the 
"House and Home Library" has been here and lie says I can clear 
from $25 to 5-50 per week. He says I can "make good" and I think 
I can, too. This will keep me away from home all summer, but for 
good pay. 

I will only have to work six days each week and nine hours 
per day. Now if I work fourteen weeks at fifty dollars per week, 
that will be seven hundred dollars, and you won't need to help me 
next year. 

I will need $50.00 to start the summer 
send at once.

^d DALES BUCHANAN, Monmouth's representative 
mI in tlie contest of tlie Illinois Intercollegiate Oratorical 

4^J ^ Association, held at Eureka November 8, 1912, was win- 
ner of a hard fought battle of oratorical skill. The Knox 
representative received second honors. Mr. Buchanan is but a 
Sophomore, but his great amount of natural ability, coupled with a 
very great talent for hard work, gave him an unquestioned suprem- 
acy, both in Thot and Composition and in Delivery. As winner of 

the state contest he was entitled to submit his oration in the inter- 
.state contest, which he accordingly did. His oration, "The Passing 
of Political Bias,.' has been selected as one of the seven best by the 
judges of thot and composition in the inter-state contest and he 
g>)es to combat representatives from Ohio, Nebraska, -Minnesota, 
Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin at Wooster, Ohio, May 16th. Mon- 
mouth expects him to do her great honor in this contest. We give 
below Mr. Buchanan's oration as given in the interstate contest. 

The Passing of Political Bias. 


The history of mankind is a story of human bias. Men nat- 
urally take sides upon local issues. As naturally, their successors 
cling to those organizations long after the questions that have 
called them into existence have passed away. In the early fifties, 
the Republican party was born of the conflict between slavery and 
freedom. For many years the Democratic and Whig parties had 
held sway, and not until the right of human liberty was brought 
before the minds of men did any break away from former party 
affiliations. So well established had the old parties become, and so 
strongly entrenched in the minds of men, that a revolution of po- 
litical thought was necessary to effect a change. 

A similar situation confronts the American people today. 
Great political, social, economic, and moral principles are at stake. 
Unrest throbs in the breast of the body politic. And well it may! 
The issues of a half century ago were settled at Appomattox. Since 
that time the rank and file of our electorate have voted with one 
party or the other mainly because they were followers or sons or 
followers of Davis or of Lincoln. It was not the tariff, it was not 
the "ratio of 16 to 1," it was not imperialism that caused people 
to align themselves with the Democratic or the Republican party. 
It was rather inherited prejudice, prejudice acquired in the heat of 
conflict, amid the roar of cannon and tlie groans of tlie dying. Men 
were moved by political bias rather than by the dictates of inde- 
pendent judgment. 

Political bias, however, is passing. The recent campaign 
demonstrates this fact. The two old parties are shifting their plat- 
forms to install new principles. A new party has arisen, with able 
and enthusiastic men as its leaders. Yet such men as Ambassador 
James Bryce say that such a breaking away from old party ties is 
the result, not of a revolutionary, but of an entirely evolution;iry 

process. The chief practical issues which once divided the two 
great political parties in America have been settled. As scon as a 
I arty has gained its general point, each member becomes intent 
upon his individul interest, and the citizen, freed from his former 
party prejudice, seeks to serve his country in a better way. In his 
inaugural address President Wilson said: "This is the high enter- 
prise of the new day; to lift everything that concerns our life as a 
nation to the light that shines from the hearth-fire of every man's 
conscience and vision of the right. The feelings with which we 
face this new age of right and opportunity sweep across our heart- 
strings like some air out of God's own presence, where justice and 
mercy are reconciled and the judge and the brother are one." 

The present political situation makes it plainly evident that 
prejudice is passing. Differences of opinion on racial and govern- 
mental questions can now be settled in other ways than by carnal 
warfare. The leading nations of the world now settle their disputes 
by international conciliation. The tactions in political strife today 
contend in more friendly, yet no less serious, combat than formerly. 
Men no longer hold their rights of conscience by the arbitrament of 
the sword. The cruel wars of Mahomet, the vengeful persecution 
of the Puritans in England, the story of the Spanish .Armada and 
the carnage that raged at the birth of the Dutch Republic — all these 
are grim reminders of devotion once paid to local prejudice. 

Certain well-defined present-day forces are at work to has- 
ten the passing of political bias. Of these, one of the most impor- 
tant is that of education. Individual efficiency and the citizen's 
service to the state is the end and aim of our public school system. 
If we are true to these aims, education will become a tremendous 
force In bringing political bias to a speedy end. The education ot 
which we speak rests also upon other means. Practical exper- 
ience, afforded by modern business methods, fits a man for social 
duty. Contact ot men with men in the rapidly multiplying activi- 
ties of life, public and private discussions of affairs of state, lead 
men to think, to question and to understand. Travel and mingling 
with men of other nations, largely modern accomplishments, afford 

a liberal education. 0\ir newspapers are becoming representative. 
Tliey are giving men broad visions of our country's needs and op- 
portunities. An intelligent use of these agencies will tend to 
broaden our education and to raise the standard of American citi- 

Another important factor in political independence is the 
application of the ethics of Christ to the business ot life. This re- 
sults in making men more self-reliant and less subservient ^o 
political organizations. Men are taught that they are free. Men, 
too. are given to understand that, made as they are in the image 
of the Eternal, they have somewhat of divinity in their makeup 
and are called upon to assert their individuality. Out of this comes 
a sympathy as broad as human need. If all men are created free, 
there must be no serfs among the toiling millions; and no man, 
because of power or wealth or place or heritage, can become dic- 
tator to his fellowmen. Political parties, therefore, lose their 
authority and become as clay in the hands of the potter. When 
they have accomplished their purjiose, they must yield to others 
better fitted to answer the demands of the hour. The time, indeed, 
is fast approaching when political parties will exist only for the 
realization of great principles. Like the scaffolds of immense struc- 
tures, they will be torn down when the buildings, erected and fin- 
ished, stand as monuments to the skill of the architects and 

Let not the optimist think, however, that because of these 
great forces at work the race will easily go to the swift and the 
battle to the strong. We wrestle not against flesh and blood alone, 
but against powers whose influence tends to deepen and to 
strengthen political bias in the minds of men. 

One of the strongest of these retentive forces is the "spoils 
system," which places before men of every rank in political life a 
tempting reward for party service. Out of this pernicious system 
has been born a class of professional politicians, and in later times 
party bosses. These flourish because the system of patronage en- 
ables them to form the rank and file of the party into compact 

organizations, while still seeking their own aggrandizement. In 
short these spoilsmen have thrown out of gear the mechanism of 

Another force, whose influence is felt in American politics, 
is re\'erence for old and outgrow^n ideals — the chain which has 
bound China to her hitherto unprogressive policy. It has so molded 
legislation and transfused the popular mind in America as to make 
difficult escape from its blighting influence. Here is a man who 
has ahvays voted the ticket of a certain party. Ask him why, and 
he will answer: "It is my ideal. It was my father's party. It was 
born the year in which he w^as born, and during his life-time and 
mine it has grown to its present power. We have fought; we have 
lost and we have won; we have grown old together, and I would 
sooner part company with my name or fortune than with my polit- 
ical party." 

What use is there to talk to such a man of present-day in- 
fluences and of the crying need of the times? He feels no emotion, 
he hears no warning, he sees no vision. His trust is in his party; 
not for wiiat it is, but for what it has been. To him, its "mountain 
standeth strong." 

The trumpet call today is for service. As the movement for 
more direct control by the people advances, so does the responsi- 
bility of every citizen increase. The direct election of United States 
senators, the initiative and referendum, the recall, the presidential 
preference primary, are all movements indicative of the growing 
democratic spirit of our country. Some ot these have not yet been 
sufficiently tried to insure success in practice. But whether or not 
these suggested changes are made, at all events the electorate will 
be charged with new responsibility. Chief Justice Winslow of Wis- 
consin has said: "A pure democracy cannot exist if its electorate 
be either ignorant or corrupt. If the fountain head be poisoned, the 
water of the stream cannot he sweet." 

Instead of bosses and machines, we must have political prin- 
ciples. Tt was Webster's opinion that when new parties arise, 
growing out of new issues, old parties must inevitably decline. 

Though spruug from controversies of lofty merit, they must give 
•place to others, if the former issues are no longer pending. Is this 
the case today? The principles of Washington, .Jefferson, and 
Lincoln; tlie security of the Constitution; the cause of political 
independence; the rights of labor and of capital; the fair fame of 
our country — do not all these hang in the balance? Francis Way- 
land truly said: "Let virtuous men unite on the ground of univer- 
sal moral principle and the tyranny of party be crushed." Now is 
the time tor men of all parties, and for all who have before stood 
aloof from parties, to accept this challenge. The day of great op- 
portunity is at hand! 

Political leaders we must always have. In a land like ours, 
continually refilling with voters who need instruction in the prin- 
ciples of free and independent government, the masses must be 
guided in the great fields of political thought. Statesmen we must 
have and the great task is to find them. Our nation is blessed 
with splendid material for leadership. There are noble men all 
about us, silently thinking, silently working. Carlyle suggested 
that to enthrone the ablest men is the true business of all social 
procedure. Democracy excels other forms of government only ii- 
so far as it provides effective methods of securing just and prudent 
leaders. But democratic government cannot succeed unless each 
citizen fulfills his civic obligation. It has been said truthfully that 
all peoples have as good governments and as good governors as 
they demand, and no better. The relation between governors and 
governed, therefore, is a balanced one: the private citizen has the 
power in his hands to secure his leader, but the leader can intu- 

ence the masses for better or for worse. Let us insist, then, upon 
leaders who will guide us in paths of civic rectitude! Let us de- 
velop a nation of citizens who will use the power of the ballot to 
defeat Wrong, to enthrone Right! 

Though it is true that political bias is passing, yet the hour 
of its demise lies deep-hidden within the folds of the future. But 
if we are fully alive to the forces already at work among us, we 
can hasten the day when political parties will serve from worthier 
motives and will stand for loftier ideals. Party pla; forms will then 
no longer be mere verbal expedients. They will wrestle with the 
dominant problems of the hour; humanity will claim more atten- 
tion than mere finance; and the standard of prosperity in the na- 
tion will be the happiness of the multitude rather than the wealth 
of the few. In the words of the patriot Sumner: '"A party which 
renounces its sentiments will itself be renounced." The watch- 
wort" of the nation will be, "Patriotism first, party afterward." 

Yet our ideals can seldom be entirely embodied in practice. 
They must be as the stars of the firmament, a very great way oft, 
else were they not ideals. But as nearer and nearer we approach, 
brighter and brighter will they shine. The endeavor of our nation 
should be to elevate to positions of leadership the ablest men avail- 
able. To secure the ablest men available, to remedy the evils of 
democracy, we must have more democracy. To exalt the nation, 
we must exalt the individuals in the nation. To exalt the individ- 
uals in the nation, and thus to make the most of a true democracy, 
we must have the unbiased assistance of every citizen. 


Monmouth-William Jewell Debate Team. 

The second debate of the series between Monmouth ana 
■William-Jewell College was held at Liberty, Missouri, Friday nighi, 
April 4, 1913. George Campbell, .John Kritzer and Glenn McGrew 
were members of this year's team and put up a good strong argu- 
ment but as they away from home and lacked the great enthusias- 
tic backing which the William-.Jewell debaters had, they were un- 
sble to return with the victory. The question was: Resolved:

Sophomore Debate Team. 

Monmouth's Sophomore Debate Team, composed of Ralph 
White, PVank Stewart and Robert Getty, defealed the Sophomoif 
team from Iowa Wesleyan in the Monmouth College Auditorium 
Friday evening, April 18, 1913, This was the first of a series of 
three debates contracted for between the Sophomore classes of the 
two institutions. From the first the Monmouth speakers held the 
upper hand, both in the matter of weight of argument and force of 
delivery, and easily carried the decision of the judges, Tlie (pies- 

lion was: Resolved: "That the plan of Banking Reform suggested 
by the National Monetary Commission should be adopted by Con- 

Wesleyan upheld the allirmative, iSlonmouth the negative. 
The judges who decided two for the negative and one for the affirm- 
ative were: Prof, S. B. Irish of the English Department of Gales- 
burg High School, Prof. Powers of William and Vashti College, and 
Prof. Hart of Galesbiir.s High School. 

Peace Oratorical. 

State Preliminary. 


In the preliminary to tlie State Contest, lield in the College 
Auditorium Friday, April 25, 1913, Ralph White was awarded first 
place by the decision of the judges. Accordingly Mr. Wlilte is privi- 
leged to represent Monmouth College in the State Contest to be 
held at Carlinville next November. Mr. White has had a great 
deal of success in the line of Oratory, both during his High School 
course and his two years of college. He is a hard worker with a 
great deal of talent and Monmouth has every reason to expect a 
victorv thru him in the State Contest, 


Monmouth was well represented in the person of Mr. Harold 
White at the State Peace Oratorical Contest held at Aledo Friday 
night, April 11, 1913. Mr. White ranked well in thot and composi- 
tion and had a forceful delivery but he had some very strong com- 
petition and failed to receive the honors awarded by the judges.

The Dream-Mother. 


^V^ E HAD promised. And the keeping of a Promise was tlie 
Matf most important of the amendments to the Keith Decalogue. 
iwc still, Blair's eyes blazed and his small Keith chin tilted 
' dangerously. The culprit swung his brown sandaled feet 
to and fro with a thud against the bedpost, and drew long wiry 
hairs from the chair on which he had thrown himself. 

He be.gan conning over the accumulated grievances of his four 
week's sojourn with Great-aunt Selina Keith. First in order, if not 
in importance, came the assault and battery upon Aunt Selina's 
cherished pig, for which the small offender served a half day ot 
enforced seclusion. Then the interesting experiment upon Tabby's 
ninth life, and his artistic decoration of the preacher's white leg- 
horn chickens. 

And now-, with his chin on bis grimy fists, he scrutinized the 
despised oilcloth covered waslistand, the granite pitcher, and the 
bowl, "suitable for a boy," as Aunt Selina had explained tliat first 
night. He shivered, as he recalled the dismal March storm, which 
had greeted his arrival in Bloomfield. He still could see the win- 
dow pane on which the splattering raindrops had mingled and run 
down. He could feel the chill ot the sheel s, and the strange loneli- 
ness of that great four-poster bed. And upon a very moist pillow, 
without even the sympathy of the Man-in-the-Moon, the lonely boy 
had at last drifted into that land of Dreams, where Aunt Selina's 
hideous patchwork quilts, and colossal beds, whirled and eddied in 
terrifying proximity. 

A sudden shrill voice from the garden, awoke him from his 
reverie, and sent him hurrying to the high-silled window. Swing- 
ing on the gate behind the toolhouse, a patch of pink gingham, 
v/hose jiggling flaxen pigtaiils bobbed up and down, chanted, as the 

"Blair Ke-ith, Bla-air-air r." 

The culprit's recently wounded pride, as well as his fear ot 
llie omnipresent Aunt Selina, lent caution to his answer. 

"I'm in the corner bedroom." 

'Come on out." 
"I've go t' stay in till supper time." Answered Blair truthfully. 

"Aw, c'm on. Your Aunt S'lina went to the Ladies' Aid Meet 
in' with mother, an' they ne\er get home afore six o'clock." 

1 lie eternal feminine was successful, and the child, whose 
conscience was becoming more or less dulled under his stern Aunt's 
discipline, pushed the Promise to the darkest corner of his tired 
lit:le brain, and with a great sigh of relief, swung his sturdy legs 
over the window ledge, shut his eyes, and landed in a disheveled 
heap upon Aunt Selina's pansy bed. 

He picked himself up, plunged hands into pockets, and with 
a swagger obviously assumed, strolled toward the toolhouse. The 
Pink Gingham hopped down off the gate, and regarded Blair cur- 

"What'd you do?" she asked, 

"I — 1 jus' don't know zackly. 'ceptin' I ast Aunt S'line if she 
< 'd hear the Night Wind howl, er if she had any gingerbread dogs er 
choc'lut cats in th' orchard." 

The flaxen pigtails bobbed understandingly. 

"She said little beys shouldn't ast questions, an' ter me to 
run brins in he kindlin' wood — " continued Blair digging tiny hol- 
lows with his stubby brown toe. "It's always, 'Blair, bring in the 
kindlin' wood.' er 'Blair, pump the water.' 'N then I — I went out 
into the woodlot an' while I was pickin' up the wood. I pertended I 
was doin' it fer my Uream-Mother, n' that she was sittin' right 'side 
tl'e tree, sewin', an' hmghiu', an' talkin' with me jus' like all Reallv- 

Diothers do, au' — an' all quick — 'fore I knew what had happened, 
Aunt S'lina jus' slammed me into th' bedroom — quickern Scat!" 

The Pink Gingham gave a little incredulous gasp of sympathy. 

"She said I was a lazy, good (er nothin' boy an' a disgrace t' 
the Keiths — an' a lot o' things, an' told me 1 c'd stay in the bedroom 
till supper time an' think about my sins. I told her I ilked t' say 
by myself better anyhow, 'cause then I c'd think about my Dream- 
mother — " Blair hesitated. "I guess it's a good thing fer some lit- 
tle boy, that God didn't make Aunt S'lina his mother. She said s!ie 
guessed my Dream-Mother 'd stay a Dream one fer a good lon^ 
while, — an' that — that my father wouldn't want me to go back home, 
now that he had a new wife, — that she was jus' a silly young doll 
anyway an' wouldn't yvant to be bothered wi h step-childern." 

"The child's grimy fists clenched and he breathed heavily, 
passing a hand across his hot forehead. 

"Father said all mothers liked little boys — if they was good. 
But I guess now Aunt S'lina'll tell him 'bout me, an' — an' my Dream- 
mother won't want me." 

The Pink Gingham, with the strange intuition of childhood, 
felt that the conversation was growing beyond her reach, so sug- 
gested irrelevantly: 

"L-et's go down t' Carter's spring house." 

Blair's state of mind accepted any diversion, and together 
the pair ploughed down the muddy road. They were soon deep in 
the discussion of chocolate rabbits that sold for a cent apiece at 
the corner store, and if eaten slowly by a long drawn out lapping 
process, I sternly disapproved of by grown-ups) would turn beauti- 
fully white without losing their shape, at least for a time. Blair's 
superior knowledge, gained from six and a half years of life in a 
great city, made him an object of wonder to the village bred Pink 
Gingham. She listened in open-mouthed rapture as he patiently ex- 
plained for the fifty-third time, the delights of "shavin' cups of 
soapy fiz with sticks in 'em" and of "truly lions that really roared," 

While the Pink Gingham babbled gaily on, Blair lapsed into 
silent contemplation of the sunny road. The strange blur which all 

day had floated before his aching eyes suddenly became thicker, 
and he lurched forward. The fence and the road were all mixed 
up, and a roaring sound drowned the voice of the Pink Gingham. 

"My head wiggles," he faltered. And his words sounded in- 
distinct and far away as he sank on the damp grass. 

The Pink Gingham was somewhat disconcerted by this sud- 
den turn of affairs, and attempted to arouse his interest in "a 
mother robin singin' a duet with her husband." But the little figure 
only sobbed hysterically. 

"Don't talk to me about Mother anythings. 1 want my Dream- 
mother — 1 want -" his words trailed off and stopped. The Pink 

Gingham pulled at his hand vigorously, and then bending over, saw 
the closed eyes and the flushed cheeks. An instant she faltei-ed, 
then ran back down the road for help. And the Dreamer of Dreams 
was alone. ..■^** ■!=******* 

Yes, his Dream was coming back; it was clearer than ever be- 
fore. This time he could hear Her speak, she had never spoken be- 
fore, only smiled, till now. He scarcely dared breathe tor fear She 
would float away, and he would find himself in the big, lonesome 
four-poster again. He felt suddenly dizzy as a cool hand stroked 
his forehead and Her eyes looked down at him. 

"I — didn't mean — to break my promise," he faltered, "I did 
want — to be good, — so I cculd go back to Father — and my Dream- 
mother, but — I got so awful loneful " 

' Ob, Tom! ?'cw (ould you leave this poor baby? If I'd only 
kno^^'n. What a wicked Dream-mother I've been!" 

-Ngain the vision came nearer, and this time the Real Dream- 
mother gathered him close in her arms. 

Blair looked all around the room. Yes, there was the same 
granite pitcher and wash bowi, "suitable for a boy," and there, too, 
was Father; and in the doorway mopping suspiciously red eyes on 
a tea towel stood Aunt Selina. 

But nearer than all the others, — and still holding him close to 
her mother heart was his own Dream-Mother. 

The Little Chair. 


AL IT T L E girl was making her way slowly and carefully 
along a crowded tliorouglifare of New York City. In one 
hand was tightly clutched a penny, tor the little girl was 
hastening to the Penny Store for a loaf of bread. As she 
crossed the street, she went cautiously along, winding her way in 
and out among vehicles of every descriiition. But when in the cen- 
ter of the street, the child stoojjed quickly, for she had dropped the 
precious penny. Just at that moment a touring car was bearing 
down upon her, though she was too preoccupied to notice it. Sud- 
denly a huge hand struck her between her tender shoulders and 
the girl was shoved ahead so that the heavy car did not pass over 
her body, but her toot was caught beneath the great tire and her 
little back thrown against the iron hub. The rescuer was an old 
man who had seen the danger and with no second thought had 
jumped toward her and thrust her aside, while he received a hard 
blow on the back of the head and fell helplessly to the pavement. 

Wlien the little girl next awoke, she was in the hospital. She 
had several bruises; her back was hurt and her ankle broken, and 
it would be several weeks before the child could leave tlie hospital, 
although her injuries would not be permanent. Her name was 
Gretehen Handorf; one of five small children whose widowed 
mother had often heard the wolf at the door. 

As for the old man who had rescued the little girl, he awoke 
after several hours of unconsciousness, with no remembrance of his 
past life. Nor was there any clue to his identity except a little 
Bible, yellow with age, on the faded flyleaf of which were the 
words: ".Jacob Krey — from your loving Mother." 

It was a month or more later that the great Customs House 
opened Its doors for its montlily auction of unclaimed goods. Very 

early in the morning many people were gathered there. Among 
them was the poor widow, Mrs. Handorf. It was nearing winter 
and she had come in the hope that she might buy coats and 
dresses which could be made into garments for her needy children. 

As the little woman was standing by the goods about to be 
sold, she noticed a small chair, an article that any one might pause 
to examine. It had an upholstered cushion of red velvet and there 
were peculiar carvings on the arms and rockers. 

"Oh, if I could but have that chair," thought she, "for little 
Gretehen when she comes home from the hospital. How proud she 
would be to claim it," for a little girl of the slums seldom has many 
toys or playthings. 

But as soon as the Jlother thought of the joy the chair would 
bring, she also thought of the money it would cost, and knew at 
once that she could never afford such a luxury. But the poor 
woman could not lieep her thoughts away nor refrain from often 
looking at the little carved piece of furniture. Each time she de- 
sired it the more. As she was taking a last look, she heard two 
men talking near her. 

"What wonderful carving and workmanship to put on a small 
chair like that!" 

"Look at that special mark on this rocker. Probably the 
trade mark of the maker. How strange that it should be in this 

"O, some ininii.grant," said the first, "has left it here while 
going to seek work perhaps. No one knows what becomes of halt 
of these foreigners anyway." 

As he spoke, the stranger turned towards Jlrs. Handorf. His 
eye caught the woman's solemn expression and the desire manifest 

In her raorement attracted his notice and made a deep impression 
on him, so that he said: 

"You are interested in the little chair?" 

"I was noticing it. sir, and wishing that I might procure it 
for my little girl hut I guess she needs clothing more than play- 

"Your little girl — is she ill?" 

"Not exactly, sir, but she was hurt in an accident." 

As she told the incidents relating to Gretchen's accident, the 
two men expressed their sympathy and then the good woman step- 
ped aside. 

Over near the auctioneer stood a dark eyed, heavy set Jew. 
He was bidding on the little chair. As there were few in that crowd 
who had come to buy luxuries, the chair was about to be knocked 
down to him, when one of the strangers spoke up and bought It. 
Turning to the widow he said: 

"Here is the little chair you so much desired, I have no urfe 
for it myself and if it will make your little girl happy, I shall be 
well repaid." 

He strode away before i\Irs. Handorf could thank him for his 
kindness. Her heart full of gratitude, the widow trudged homeward 
with the chair hugged close to her faded dress, for to her the future 
was brightened by one kind act. 

It w'as several months before Gretchen was able to walk. 
But by the time she was seven she could run and play. On this her 
birthday, the little family were to have as the honored guest at din- 
ner, the old man who, in an effort to save Gretchen. was injured by 
the touring car. The family had become well acquainted with him, 
tor they had often seen him when they visited Gretchen at the hos- 

It was the old man's first visit to the humble home and the 
children were eagerly awaiting him, for they were very fond of 
"Uncle Jacob," as they had learned to call him at the hospital, 
where he had been employed since his accident. Never had he re- 
gained remembrance of what he had been before, hut always seemed 

happy and contented, although when alone he had sometimes won- 
dered about himself, and would then pick up his Bible and read the 
name "Jacob Krey," which was the only link with his past life. 

When the guest entered the door, the children grasped him 
by the hand; the smallest he took in his arms; in spirit he became 
as young as they and all were blithe and happy. 

While Mrs. Handorf was putting the finishing touches to the 
table, "Uncle Jacob" was teaching the children a new trick which 
he had learned at the hospital. Then Gretchen, laying her hand on 
bis arm, said: 

"Uncle, come to see my little chair which a kind man bought 
for me," and she led him over to where it was. 

At the first glance, Jacob Krey started. He stepped back. 
His eyes were full of wonderment. Recognition seemed almost to 
glow in his countenance. What had the chair to do with him? 
Something, and yet he could not think. He said nothing but stoop- 
ed and turned the chair over. On one rocker was a strange marking 
that caught his eye and like a flash it was all explained — the chair 
was his. He examined the upholstered cushion ahd wholly unmind- 
ful of those around him, he seized the red velvet in his rough hand 
and tore it from the chair. The little family w'ere astonished and 
stood speechless. There was something in the old man's action 
which frightened tliem and they dared not interrupt. Suddenly he 
took from the torn cushion, gold coins by the thousands, us it 
seemed to Gretchen. To the widow and children it was indeed a 
miracle. At last he pulled out a paper on which were the words: 
"Jacob Krey, September 10, 1S85." He gave the paper to Mrs. Han- 
dorf and asked: 

"What date is it now?" 

"April 12, 18S6." 

"Then I have been out of the world many months." 

As the coins fell through his fingers to the floor, Jacob Krey 
again forgot his companions and thought only of the little fortune 
which was restored to him. At last he broke the silence: 

"You wonder what it is all about? This chair belonged to my 


only child who died when younger than your Gretchen here. It 
was on September tenth that I finally decided to leave the Father- 
land and come to America, of which 1 had heard so much, so I took 
what money I had saved through long years of toil and placed it 
beneath the red velvet on the cushion of my dead daughter's chair, 
where I thought it would be safe, because I never expected to part 
with that which at one time was almost sacred to me. Around it 
lingered the memories of that little one who long ago delighted to 
rock at my feet. 

"When I arrived here, I left my few belongings at the Cu.s- 
toms House while 1 started out to find lodgings. It was while going 
along the street that 1 met your little Gretchen. Then came the 

accident, as a result of which 1 was dead to the world, and when 
next I awoke, it was in the hospital. But fortune has again smiled 
on me. I have found faithful friends in this new land and there is 
more true happiness in my heart than for many years. My good 
woman, you and your children shall have what is mine. We shall 
all share it equally, for had it not been for you, I should never have 
regained my treasure." 

Jacob Krey has long since gone to his reward. Little 
Gretchen is a woman now with a family of her own. Among her 
most priceless treasures is the little carved chair around which 
clings the memory of him who rescued her.

Base Ball Review for 1912. 

Conference Cliampions, Uil2, is the title by wliicli .Monmoutli 
College base ball team will be l<nown in the future, and as such they 
are entitled to a word of praise beyond the ordinary, not alone be- 
cause they have played excellent ball, but because of the personal 
characteristics of the twelve men who have had a share in honor. 

Taken as a whole, the team won because of its pitchers and 
because of its fielding. At the bat they were not as strong as the 
most of their opponents, but each man could be depended on to 
deliver his hits at the proper time to do the most good. 

The individual work of each man was of high standard. 
Hamilton, Nottleman and McMillan will be missed this year, as 
they graduated in the class of 1912. With the remainder of the 
squad back this year we can hope for another Championship Team.

Track and Base Ball Outlook, 1913 

-Moiiinouth has won her first two base ball games of the sea- 
son and promises to have a successful team in spite of the fact that 
the team lost heavily by graduation of its members last year. We 
have our old standby, Sclirenk. to depend on and Wasson was pre- 
vailed upon to return to school late in the year, so that Monmouth 
cannot ask tor more in the way of pitchers. With Curry, Torrence 
and Buckley of last year's team to back them up, and with the 
promising material that has been trying out tor the team, there is 
no reason why JMonmouth should not have a team that she can be 
proud of. Coach McMillan made a championship team last year 
and he will make a team this year that will give the other schools 
in the Conference a run for that position. 

In track, Piofessor Davis has been doing the coaching. Pro- 
fessor Davis has had plenty of experience in track work and is a 
good booster. He has been getting the fellows out and to work and 
is working up some very good material. One weakness this year 
will be in the distance runs. The shorter runs and sprints will be 
our strongest points, with Cleland, Henderson and Denniston as 
the principal entrants. 

This season should be a successful one, both in track and base 
ball. It can hardly be expected that either team will be utterly in- 
vincible this year, tor there is a considerable proportion of new 
material in each team, but it is reasonable to expect a season above 
the average.

The 1912 football season was marked by an unusual amount 
of spirit and enthusiasm. Altlio the team met opponents of univer- 
sity caliber and succeeded in winning only a small percentage of 
its games, yet it was supported with that true loyalty which is al- 
ways wanted but rarely seen. The team itself fought from start to 
finish, feared no odds, and gave the best it had.

tor practice, and around this small nucleus the coach was compelled 
to build his machine from last year's second team and from new 
material. The first game was played October 1 with the local high 
school, and resulted in a victory for the college, 18-0. One week 
later Lombard was defeated on the home field by the score of 20-0. 
The game was spectacular thruout and was marked by a fighting 
spirit which brightened the prospects for a winning team. Camp-

bell and Rankin did the starring, the former with his cross-bucks, 
and the latter with his stellar open field running. 

The next game was with Millikin University of Decatur, 111. 
Monmouth outplayed them in every stage of the game and at the 
close of the fourth quarter it looked as tho a second victory would 
be ours with a score of 15 to 9. But while the officials were disputing 
over the amount of time yet to play, Millikin made a sensational 

forward pass, and put the ball over for a touchdown, .\fter kicking 
goal, Millikin was declared the winner by one point, 16 to 15. 

On the following Friday, with the team in the poorest condi- 
tion of the season. Parsons College was met at Fairfield, Iowa. The 
loss of two of the best players was keenly felt. Robert JIcBride, 
the star tackle, was out of the game with a sprained ankle, and 
Graham, the plucky quarter, with a broken shoulder. Our "jinx" 
was again the forward pass, tor Parsons made the only score of the 
game by tlie air route. 

The next week was spent by the student body and team in 
preparing for the strong William and Vashti squad. The enthus- 
iasm created during that week inspired the men with confidence, 
and they were determined to do their best. During the first half of 
the game Monmouth held their heavier opponents almost equally, 
but in the last two quarters weight and experience told, and the 
Aledo team was able to run up a score of several touchdowns. 

The following two weeks saw the coach putting in his best 
efforts to round the team into first-class shape for the big game of 
the season. On November 9, Monmouth met Knox on Willard Field 
in one of the most sensational games ever seen on the Knox grid- 
iron. Monmouth was outweighed, but made up in speed and aggres- 
siveness what it lacked in weight. The final score was 14 to 13. 
Knox taking the big end. Each team made two touchdowns, but 
Knox kicked one more goal than .Monmouth, thus taking the lead 
by one point. Kelly was the bright star of the game for Monmouth. 
Time and again, with good interference, and with his great speed, 
he evaded the opposing ends, and advanced the ball into Knox terri- 
tory, thus putting us within striking distance of their goal. 

The last two games were played w-ith Lake Forest and Beloit, 
the former at Lake Forest, and the latter on the home field. Both 
teams proved to be our superiors in weight and experience. Lake 
Forest winning 26-0 and Beloit 20-0. The game with Kennedy's 
men on November 16 was played on a muddy field, and thus the 
lighter Monmouth eleven was unable to do its best, needing a fast 
gridiron to get up the speed which it depended upon. Beloit con- 

fidently expected, because of comparative scores, to obtain a de- 
cisive victory. But after tlie plucky tiglit put up by Monmouth tliey 
"Were satisfied with three touclidowns.

The 1913 basket ball season closed with a 
record of five victories and six defeats. Of the 
eleven games played, seven were with members 
of the Conference, and in two of the seven Mon- 
mouth was victorious, Knox suffering defeat in 
both games with us. The fact that we routed 
Knox on her own floor sends somewhat of a 
cheer to what otherwise would have been a med- 
iocre season. 

Schulz was the onlj' man to report from 
last year's squad, making it necessary to choose 
the other members of the team from new men. 
Of these, Rankin, McMichael, H. White, R. 
White, Bailey. Curry and McConnell appeared 
the most likely. The greatest handicap to the 
new men was their lack of weight when compar- 
ed with other teams of the Conference. Weight 
is a natural asset under the present rules. 

The season opened with Lake Forest, on 

the home floor. The game was marked by fast. 

open play, but it was plain to be seen that the 

visiting team had the edge on us. Their team 

v.ork, coupled with accurate basket shooting, was the feature of the 

game. "Too much Dunsmore" spelled our defeat. 

The next week Lombard and Knox were both met and defeat- 
ed, the former at Galesburg and the latter at Monmouth. Lombard's 
small floor prevented any open play, and kept the score down to 
39-13. The Knox game was closer and was marked by fast, clean 
basket ball. Monmouth was ahead at half time and at the end of 
the game led by eight points, 34-26. The series with Parsons re- 


suited in a game apiece, each team winning on its liome floor. 
Monmouth had the better of the argument, however, for it won 
47-19, whereas the best Parsons could do was 26-22. 

The most important game of the season was with Knox, at 
Galesburg. For the first time in years, the locals were able to win 
from their old rivals on the Knox floor. The score was close thru- 
out, with Monmouth leading most of the time. The features of the 
game were H. White's guarding of Prince, the star Knox forward, 
and the basket shooting and aggressive playing of Schulz and R. 
White. The final score was 21-17. 

The remainder of the games were with Conference teams, all 
of which resulted in defeats for the locals. One reason for this was 
the hard Chicago trip, on which three games were played. Schulz 
was injured in the Armour game and thus was unable to meet Be- 
loit. The season closed at Lake Forest, the score being practically 
the same as it had been in the first game with this team.

/^ LASS OF 1913 boasts of much and she has little of which 
II to be ashamed. Peacefulness has marked her career but 

^^^ with her. the days of peace have been days of fruitfulness. 
In scholarship she has not lacked; her athletes have rep- 
resented her well; on the platform she has been well represented; 
and her dramatics, her music, her social life have been matters of 
comment. There has been nothing to mar her name. Her emblem 
has been peace, and her labors have been crowned with laurels. 

But her day has come to leave the institution she loves and 
she must go out to tap the secrets of the future. Four years of col- 
lege life seem but a week but for what they have meant we have 
no expression. They have been years full of joys and pleasures, 
tempered with heartaches and disappointments; years ever to be 
remembered for their new inspirations, new ideals, new hopes, new" 
fears, new loves. It is hard to bring them to an end but there 
comes a new call and the Class of 1913 must hurry on.

Junior Class History. 

^^ HE CLASS OF 1914 is a class with a history. She began 
^^^ making liistory by winning tlie pole scrap from the Sopho- 
mores and then by a series of escapades in which the 
president of the Sophomore class and many of her own 
members were involved. One of the most exciting February 22d 
banquets of history has been associated with her name and a world- 
v.ide reputation has fallen to her lot. But now that she has con- 
tributed so nobly to the annals of history she has settled down and 
turned her hand to more fruitful tasks. Into every avenue of stu- 
dent activities she has sent successful leaders and in this book she 
submits to the world one of the products of her labor, which she 
hopes will serve to add to her glory.

The Sophomore Class History. 

^fT HE CLASS of 19in has made a record for itself which 
/ 1 makes the records of most other classes look dim. Almost 

^^ no sooner had the "fifteeners" entered school than they 
turned the tables on their elders, the Sophomores, and won 
from them the honors of the pole scrap in a hard fought battle. Of 
course a few of the then Freshmen were treated in somewnat of an 
underhanded manner by the Sophomores but they outlived that and 
began doing things in Monmouth. They jumped right into athletics 
and put the man on the basket ball squad that became its captain 
the next season. In track they furnished the biggest part of the 
team, and only in base ball, where the places were tilled with old 
players, did they not get a show. It was a member of the class of 
Ifllo that won the preliminary that made him an orator in the state 
contest and then won the state contest for the first time Monmouth 
had won it for years. It was the class of 191.5 that re-established the 
Sophomore debate, won the first of the series and also put a man 
on the college debate team. And when the time for the State Ora- 
torical came arouud again this year a "fifteener" won it. 

These are a few of the things we have done and we still main- 
tain that like the sun outbeams the stars of the heavens, so does the 
class of 1915 shine forth among the classes and so, long may it

The Freshman Class. 

Defense of the Freshmen. 

You have often seen a fellow 

With a gleaming streak of yellow 
Down his back. 

And you well know what a feeling 

O'er most Freshmen comes a stealing- 
Deepest blue. 

When you mix the blue and yellow 
(Know^s the real artistic fellow) 
You get green. 

And I s'pose that's why the Freshman 
Has that verdant reputation, 
But it's mean. 

No, our laddies and our lassies 

Are not like most other classes 
You have seen. 

For we never have the blues, 
Nor the yellow, so profuse; 
We're not green. 

We're the brightest on the campus. 
Beauteous, verdant, leafy campus; 
We're not green.

The Conservatory of Music. 


Monmouth College was founded in 1856. and as early as 1858 
courses were offered in Voice and Piano. During the next few years 
changes were very frequent until Prof. S. H. Price took charge in 
1869. Under his leadership and until his death in 1888 very definite 
progress was made in the Department of Music. During the years 
1887-1901 Dr. Herbert, well known as a composer, had charge of the 
vocal department. At the same time an increasing demand for mus- 
ical instruction lead the faculty to organize the department under 
the direction of Prof. Zartman. Dr. Herbert followed him as Direc- 
tor until the department was formally organized as the Monmouth 
College Conservatory of Music and Prof. T. Merrill Austin was se- 
cured as Director in 1901. 

Under Professor Austin the Conservatory has made very 
great progress. None less than the best of instructors have been 
secured and the best of everything needed in equipment has been 

Mr. Austin has established the Choral Society, a permanent 
organization, comprised of the best vocal talent in the college and 
city. He has established an Artists' Course thru which Monmouth is 
permitted to enjoy each year at a very nominal cost, a course of con- 
certs by some of the leading artists of the country. An annual event 
of his founding is the May Festival, for which a leading orchestra 
of the country and several leading soloists are usually brot to Mon- 

Mr. Austin has immediate supervision of the vocal training 
and also teaches Organ, Interpretation, and History. 

Miss Emily Thomas, as teacher of advanced piano, proves her 
musicianship by her artistic performance but the progress made 

under her leadership and tl.e finished quality of her pupils pre- 
eminently speaks her value to the Conservatory. 

Miss Katharin Finley is i ery popular as a violinist and seems 
to be able to bring out the same qualities in her pupils. She de- 
serves special commendation as leader of the orchestra. 

Miss Marie Kettering, teacher of piano, is one of the best 
pianists the Conservatory has produced. .As an accompanist she is 
always in demand. 

Miss Edna Smith is a very able and efficient teacher of 
Methods or Public School music. She is a graduate of the Conserva- 
tory and has had successful experience as a teacher of music in 
public schools. 

The Conservatory met a severe loss in the early part of the 
year when Mr. Foyal D. Hughes, teacher of Voice, Harmony, Com- 
position and Counterpoint, resigned to accept a position as Director 
of the Conservatory at Ohio Northern University. But it was very 
fortunate in securing Mr. Thos. H. Hamilton to till the position. Mr. 
Hamilton, in the short time he has been in the Conservatory, has 
made himself very popular. Under his leadership in particular the 
Glee Club has had a very successful year and has been permanently 

The bi-weekly recitals at which pupils are permitted to gain 
public experience; the weekly piano recitals, and the term recitals 
are features of the Conservatory which are of great value to the 
pupils. The Faculty recitals, the Artist Course, the Choral Society, 
the Orchestra and the Glee Club all give opportunities in musical 
training and experience that are not equalled everywhere. 

The School of Oratory. 


A graduating course in Oratory has not been offered in Mon- 
mouth College until three years ago. It was then that the Depart- 
ment of Oratory was organized under Miss Dickinson, and the 
course thrown open to students. Several persons at once took ad- 
-5 J - vantage of the course and the first class was graduated in 1912. 

. "1 This year's class contains but one graduate as compared with five 

of last year, but there are several .Juniors in oratory who expect to 
graduate in 1914. 

The object of the School of Oratory is to aid pupils in the 
interpretation of literature, so that it will aid them in every branch 
of college work; to prepare teachers of Elocution and Oratory; 
and to develop intelligent, natural readers and speakers. Two 
courses are offered by the school, a teacher's course and a public 
reader's course. The courses are open to High School graduates. 
Private lessons are required in addition to the regular class work, 
and two years of English, Psycholog> and Physiology are also re- 

Miss Maude Tyree is the director of the School. English 
work is given under the able direction of Prof. M. M. Maynard and 
Psychology under Prof. L. E. Robinson, head of the department of 
English and Philosophy.

The past year has been a fruitful one. Under the auspices 
of the Y. M. C. A., two socials, two entertainments and a banquet 
ha\'e been given. Considerable interest has been aroused in Gospel 
team work and three teams have been sent out. The latest move- 
ment under the new administration has been towards the furnish- 
ing of the Y. M. C. A. Room in the Library building; ?200 has al- 
ready been secured or subscribed.

The Glee Club. 


[NG to the inability of the College to furnish a suJli- 
cient number of tenors to warrant the organization of a 
Glee Club, the Glee Club was allowed to lapse during the 
year 1911-12, but this year there was such a good supply 
of material for all parts that a try-out was held at the very first of 
the year and the Club picked, under the Directorship of Prof. Royal 
D. Hughes. Mr. Hughes was just getting the Club into shape when 
he was elected as Director of the Conservatory of Music in the Ohio 
Northern University, and resigned to take up the new position. 
Prof. Thomas H. Hamilton fortunately was secured to take his 
place but the time, which is naturally lost in changing directors, 
removed the possibility of a Christmas tour and all efforts were 
spent in preparing for the spring vacation tour. A varied program 
was planned with the aid of Miss Mary Lord, Reader, Jlr. Rolla 
Mudd, Tenor, and Mr. Lawrence Teare, Violinist. 

Mr. .John Ferguson, Field Assistant to the President, ar- 
ranged a tour to the Southern part of the state out from St. Louis. 
The club, with Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson as chaperons, left Mon- 
mouth the evening of March 17 and during the next weeli gave a 
series of concerts at Marissa, Pinckneyville, Cutler, Coulterville, 
Oakdale, Sparta, Tilden and St. Louis, and returned to Monmouth 
March 26. Everywhere, save where a stormy night forbade, they 
were greeted with good audiences and met with a full share of suc- 
cess. The Quartette, composed of Messrs. Hamilton, Mudd, McEI- 
hinney and Cleland; the soloists, Mr. Mudd, Mr. Teare, and the 
Reader, Miss Lord, contributed much to the success of the tour. 

"The Wooers," or according to the programs, "Love Scene 
from 'Samson and Delilah,' " as executed by Messrs. Barnes and 
McEIhinney, always made a hit. "Doan' Ye' Cry, Ma Honey" and 

"Ciribiribin," by the Glee Club, were favorite numbers with most 
audiences, A goodly share of snappy encores gave plenty of life 
to the program. 

In addition to the St. Louis trip several short week-end trips 
have been taken and two Monmouth concerts have been given. The 
season has proven a success in every way. 

The Glee Club has been organized on a permanent basis. 
A constitution has been adopted and ofhcers have been elected.

The College Quartette. 


Monmouth has had a male quartette this year for the first 
time in several years. As members of the Glee Club they have 
taken an important part in its program, but they have also made

Banquet. The quartette is well balanced and has made itself very 
popular wherever it has sung. 

Members of the Quartette. 

Rolla Mudd — First Tenor. 
Thomas H. Hamilton — Second Tenor. 
De Witt Cleland— Baritone. 
Hoy McElhinney — Bass.

The Oracle 

The Oracle is a wt'cklj iii^iKazinc inililishrd l.j ihe students 
o£ Monmouth College each Tuesday during the school year. It is 
the official organ of the College and Alumni Association. 

At the end of each year the freshman class elects four edi- 
tors and four husiness managers from those in the class whose 
class work has averaged above B. At the end of the Sophomore 
year two assistant editors and two assistant business managers 
are selected from these and at the end of the Junior year the 
editor-in-chief and the business manager are selected wholly on a 
competitive basis. No person may be a member of the staff whose 
class work averages below B. The editor and business manager 
each receive a schoiai'Shij) and also a share of the earnings up to 
?60 apiece.

The Gospel Teams. 

During the year the Y. M. C. A. has undertaken a new line 
ot work thru the medium o£ gospel teams. Several ot the workers 
attended a convention in Iowa during the Thanksgiving vacation 
at which gospel team work was especially studied. A gospel team 
was accordingly organized, with Clarence Gibb, John Simpson, Hoy 
McElhinney, Will McCuUoch and Walter Miller as members, and 
correspondence was taken up, which ended in arrangements for 
the team to go to Alexis for one week during the Christmas vaca- 
tion. This week was spent in a series of special meetings with 
special efforts on the part of the members to use their best influ- 
ence on the High School fellows. The Churches co-operated will- 
ingly and a very successful week was experienced. The week's 
work was so successful that two teams were organized for the 
spring vacation. One spring vacation team, composed ot Otto Self, 
Dean McKee, Harry Gibson. .John Simpson and Bert Chapel, went 
to Biggsville and conducted a successful series of services. 

The other team, consisting ot Bruce Henderson, Dales Buch- 
anan, Henry Hastings, .James McCoy and Harry Gillis, met with a 
very pleasant and successful week's work at Bushnell. 

Reports full of praise for the work of the teams came back 
from each community, and not least among these to receive great 
benefits from the work, were the members ot the teams themselves.

Monmouth College Choral Society. 

Altho the Jlonmouth College Choral Society is not a close or- 
ganization, it is none the less important. It is a society composed 
in Monmouth College and of the city of eighty ot the best singers 
of Monmouth, and has for its leader one of the best directors in 
the state of Illinois, Prof. T. Merrill Austin. Under his able direc- 
tion they have given two concerts during the year; the mid-winter 
concert and the May Festival.. 

The Mid-Winter Concert consisted o( solos by Miss Kathryn 
Finley, Violin, Miss Emily Thomas, Piano, and Mr. Church, Pipe 
Organ, and two choruses by the Choral Society for the first part; 
the second part was the rendition ot Gade's "The Erl King's Daugh- 
ter." The soloists were all graduates of the ^lonmouth College

The Monmouth College Orchestra is not a close organization 
but it is also an important organization in Monmouth. Under the 
able leadership of Miss Kathryn Finley, it gave a concert of very 

high yuality April 17. In this concert Miss Ruth Eby, Violinist,. 
Mrs. Wylie Stewart, Contralto, and Prof. T. Merrill Austin, Accom 
panist, assisted. 


The History Club. 

Professor Story has shown another evidence of his Progres- 
sive tendencies in the organization of the History Club. The ob- 
ject of the Club is two-told: — the attainment of scholarship as the 
basis of true culture and social standing — this implies an apprecia- 
tion of knowledge for its own sake; the second object is the culti- 
vation of an aspiration for graduate work. History, as the record 
of the human race, gives ample opportunity tor a recognition of 
the conditions and needs of mankind, and of the means by which 
his plane may be ele\ated. 

Membership in the Club is open to all students; the large 
attendance attests the interest in the movement. At the monthly 
meetings a topic of historical interest is taken up; Professor Story 
sets forth the characteristics of the subect in an impartial and 
comprehensi\'e manner; this is followed by a general discussion. 
An informal social hour adds to the pleasure of the evening. The 
Club has justified its organization; it has done much to break down 
the barriers which usually exist betw'een professors and students; 
it has established a precedent for intellectual enjoyment of an 
earnest and profitable character. The official board consists or 
Lillian Blayney, President; Harriet St. Clair, Vice President; Will 
McCulloch, Secretary. 


The Student Volunteer Band of Monmouth is a part of that 
great World Movement of the Student Volunteers, composed of 
men and women who are not only willing but purpose to go to the 
foreign fields as missionaries. The Band was organized in 1004, 
and was recognized in 1911. During the existence of the organi- 
zation many of its members have gone forth to sow their lives in 
Missionary service. 

The Student Volunteer Band meets each Saturday evening 

at eight o'clock and from time to time holds open meetings to 
which those Interested in the work are invited. A systematic 
course of Mission study is taken up. This year "The Desire of 
India," by F. J. Datta, has been the principal text book. 

The band has meant much to those who have gone from it 
in the past and w^e trust that it may serve still more to strengthen 
the men and women w^ho are influenced by it and to produce more 
w'orkers. and stronger and more efficient workers for the greatest 
task before Christianity — the Evangelization of the World. 


Although Professor Church has but recently come into our 
midst, he is making rapid strides toward the highest standard in 
his courses. This year a German Club has been organized, with ad- 
vanced students of German as charter members. The membership 
is elective and confined to advanced students. The programs are 
^'aried, but distinctively German in nature and construction. The 
club represents on the part of Professor Church and the members, 
an effort to achieve the mastery of this language and to put it to 
practical use; for this purpose the Club presents an opportunity im- 
possible to class room work. Meetings are held monthly at the 
home of Professor Church. The officers are: Mary Lord, President; 
Esther Craig, Vice President; Ruth Okey, Secretary. 


Affairs directly pertaining to all of the students of the Col- 
lege are either directly dealt with by the students themselves in 
their organization, the Student Body, or thru the medium of their 
representatives, the Student Council. The officers of the Student 
Body for the year 1912-13 have been: 

John J. Kritzer— President. 

Lois Barnes — Secretary -Treasurer. 

Rejected Contributions. 

She'd red hair and freckles and ugly cross eyes, 

But I said that I loved her true; 
She wore bright green hose, a dress blue as the skies, 

And she said that she loved me too. 

I fondled and kissed her a peck on the ear. 

But college has started at last; 
I've vowed to cut out all such things for this year, 

I've got to quit living so fast. 

— Too sentimental. — Ed. 

When Dido climbed her funeral pyre. 

And soaked her clothes with gasoline. 
She cursed Aeneas to the mire, 
Denounced him awfully mean. 

(Thirty-two other stanzas.) 

— Too much historical allusion. — Ed. 

Flo was fond of Ebenezer, 

Eb for short she called her beau. 
Talk of tides of love! Great Caesar! 

You should see them Eb and Flo. 

Old, Pirated.— Ed. 

A minute of darkness, 
A moment of bliss, 
A sofa, a maiden, 
A hug and a kiss. 

O busy bee. 
King of the bush. 
Work on, do not 
Back up and push. 


Not enough dignity. — Ed. 

— McBane. 
Don't get the point. — Ed.

"They are so very slow." 

Said Dottie A. to Hazel P., 

"I miss my Tommie, too;" 
"These others don't look good to me," 

"They are a rough-neck crew." 

"Of all sad words of tongue or pen," 

Together then they cry, 
"The saddest are, we have no men," 

"Alas! ah me! oh my!"

The Wrong Letter. 

Dramatis Personae — two students; George and Ray. 
Scene — A student's room. 

I. Ray, tilted back witli Ijooli. feet on table, studying. George 
at other end of table, poring over trig problems, head on hand, busy 
with pencil and paper. 

II. Ray sits upright with bang, slams book on table, absent- 
mindedly turns pages of another book on table. 

Speaks to George; no response. 
Speaks again; gets a little glance. 

III. Goes down to phone; calls up; talks like trying to get a 
date. Disappointed. Looks thru student directory; finds another; 
calls up; disappointed again. Looks thru directory — long this time; 
calls the third. Smile of acceptance. 

IV. Rushes back to George; grabs him; shakes him from his 
studies; talks a little; then together they look thru student direc- 
tory; at last pause. George goes to phone; jolly conversation; no 
trouble at all; goes back. 

V. Ray and George get their coats and leave, whistling. 


Miss Henry, in some recent official correspondence, received 
the following letter; 

Champaign, 111., May 7, 1913. 
Dear Rupert: — 

Don't you hear the call of the wild in your ears — to meet me 
at the greatest seat of learning in the Middle West? Big track meet 
here the 23rd. Hand in a suitable excuse to the powers that be — 
get your suit and take the next train. 

Let me know when it will suit yon and I shall be glad to meet 
you. Yours. 


The Reply. 

Monmouth, 111.. May 9, 1913. 
Dear Mr. Gang: — 

Enclosed, find your call to the wild. Fate and hurry are mis- 
chie\"ous elves and they some times get their lines crossed. 



Notice the local color. 

Monmouth, 111., March IS, 1913. 
Dear Folks: — 

It is algebra class and I am having my daily dream. Miss 
Winbigler, our professor, has just emerged from her fourth fit of 
epilepsy this week. The class, consciant of her superior brain 
power, are letting her do the work. 

Henry Hastings is reciting. 1 hope he keeps busy. too. until 
class is over.

Entertainment Last Evening. 

Monmouth 111., September 16 1912. 
Late this evening a few of the new men 
were escorted by their immediate prede- 
cessors to the edge of town where one of 
the most enjoyable events of the year was 
prosecuted. The freshmen were all given 
opportunity to develope their talents in ev- 
ery possible field of activity. Mr. Wilmer 
Graham "Pierced" the fence and displayed 
remarkable genius as "Homeun Hector." 
The remainder of the boys rendered 
"Grandmother's Chair" very pitifully while 
the sophs beat time on the seat. Doctor 
Mcilichael was not there. 


Rev, John Ferguson of Buffalo, N. Y., Chosen as the 
President's Assistant. Is Well Qualified. 

Monmouth Daily Review. Oct. o, 1SI12. — 
Rev. ,Iohn Ferguson is the latest to become 
identified with the inerests of Monmouth 
College and he is expected to arrive here 
either the middle of next month or the first 
of December to beigin his work. Officially 
he will be the assistant to the president and 
his duties will be along the line of arousing 
interest in the college among the churches 
and securing new students for the institu- 
tion. Rev. Ferguson is no novice at tlie 
work which has been assigned him, as he 
was out two months this summer doing sim- 
ilar work and it was after seeing the results 
of his campaign then, that the college au- 

thorities thought it a good move to secure 
his permanent service. 

The new man is not a stranger in Mon- 
mouth as he graduated here with the class 
of 1891 and later went to the theological 
seminary, where he also finished his course. 
After completing his education he entered 
the ministry, and for the last ten years he 
has been pastor of the church at Buffalo, 
New York. He just recently resigned his 
pastorate there and as soon as he can make 
his arrangements he will leave the pastoral 
work in New York and come here to assume 
his new position. 

While the college has grown and prosper- 
ed without the special services of a field 

worker since the resignation of W. J. Bu- 
clianan, it is tliouglit tliat nnicli greater 
growth can he shown and more students in- 
duced to enter the local school if there is a 
man kept in the field all the time who will 
keep the tame of the school constantly be- 
fore the people. 



Defeat Sophomores In Pole Scrap. 

Monmouth, 111., September 23. 

At 5 o'clock this morning the citizens in 
the East part of town were aroused by the 
ringing of bells. A crowd soon began to 
gather and the members of both classes ar- 
rayed in hideous war-paint prepared for the 
rush. The colors of the sopliomores waved 
in the gentle morning breeze and a large 
circle of spectators surrounded the scene of 
the battle. 

At six o'clock on signal from the referees 
the freshmen made a rush. (We omit the 
details of the conflict, as they are somewhat 
brutal. These particulars may be had by 
application at the office). 

Too Much. 

Neice — Uncle, 1 saw the dearest little 
handkerchief down town this morning. I 
want you to get it for me. It only costs five 

Uncle — "Ah no! That's too much to 
blow in." — Independent. 

This Fine Home for College Girls Up-to-Date in Every 
Particular — Sitting Room Chief Feature. 

Monmouth, 111., .June 1, 1913.— The girl's 
dormitory is nearing completion. The foun- 
dation is well under way and the sub-base- 
ment has been arranged for. The college is 
to be congratulated on having such a large 
and commodious home for its girls. Every 
girl in it will be surrounded with every- 
thing in the way of convenience. Comfort 
will be manifest in every line. 

One great feature of the new dormitory is 
the sitting room. It will be open to the girls 
once every two weeks for the purpose of 
entertaining their company. To expedite 
matters, the girls will be divided into two 
groups: the first group may entertain com- 
pany Thursday evening of one week; the 
second group, the following Thursday from 
7:30 to 9:30 and so on. 

The equipment of the room is up to date 
in every particular. At one end is the en- 
trance to the dean's parlors, with a magniti- 
ficent portrait of the dean in scholarly atti- 
tu'ie, adorning the wall. Close by, at the 
other end a large fireplace to give cheer 
to the room on the long winter Thursday 

evenings. Along the other two walls run im- 
mense "comfort" benches from one end to 
the other, all upholstered in the latest style. 
The bench along the east wall will be dedi- 
cated to the girls of the dormitory; that 
on the west to their gentleman friends. The 
dean has consented to allow the gentleman 
visitor to sit opposite his host. 

It is thot this will be an extremely suc- 
cessful arrangement, tor the boys will be 
permitted thus to see their friends occasion- 
ally in the most favorable environment, and 
the social element that has been so frequen- 
tly lacking in the make-up of college men 
and women will be thus provided. 

The illustration which we present here- 
with is not a photograph, but it presents in 
a graphic way the \-ast superiority of the 
new conditions, over those at present. 

It has been provided in the by-laws that 
the dean shall inform the gentlemen guests 
at least two minutes before the hour for de- 
parture, in order that there shall be no oc- 
casion for reprimand on account of broken 

The picture given herewith is the picture 




of the last day in the year when 10:30 per- 
mission is given. 

Certainly nothing has come short in the 
matter of provision for the girls of Mon- 
mouth College. 


Monmouth, 111., Dec. 19. — A number of the 
students were in attendance on the "Housa 
of a Thousand Candles" in the Pattee Oper.i 
House here last evening. An excellen. 
show is reported. But altho Mr. Robert 
Teare had his field glasses and his slid ; 
rule to make his computations with, he 
could only find 143 out of 1000 candles thai 
were advertised. 

March 3. A number of young men, well 
known in town and college circles, will 
make their debut in "Madame X" at the 
Opera House here this evening. Some wi 1 
appear as juniors, the remainder will play 
the role of spectators in the courtroom

How Monmouth Looks on a Map. 

ONE II U N D R E 11 A N D T H I R T V ■ F I V E 


Monmouth Daily Review, Oct. 16, 1912.— 
The Monmouth College authorities announce 
that they have secured the services of Dr. 
E. K. Strachan, of the University of Illinois, 
who is to have charge of science hall during 
the Mr. Trickey's sickness. Prof. Trickey, 
who came here this fall to take Prof. Swan's 
place, was taken suddenly ill about a week 
ago and underwent an operation for ap- 
pendicitis at the Monmouth hospital. For a 
few days the college was without any 
science professor and Dr. McMichael spent 
some time in Chicago looking for a new man. 

Through the kindness of the University of 
Illinois, Dr. E. K. Strachan was granted a 
leave of absence for two months in order 
to come to Monmouth College and take 
charge of the chemistry and physics depart- 
ment. Dr. Strachan is a young man. a grad- 
uate of the University of Illinois, and has 
been an assistant instructor at that school 
tor the past few years. He will be in Mon- 
mouth College until Prof. Trickey is able to 
resume his duties. 


Shoes Center of Attraction. 

Is it in good form to wear tan shoes to a 
faculty reception or should a man get his 
shoes dyed beforehand is a question over 

which many are pondering today. A young 
gentleman attended the Faculty reception 
last evening and in the stir his slioes at- 
tracted so much attention tliat as soon as 
the crowd moved away from him he was 
heard to wonder whether or not he had bet- 
ter go home. "It wouldn't make a scent's 
difference to me," he said. 



Noteworthy Exhibit at Auditorium. 

Monmouth, 111., Nov. 21, 1912.— This morn- 
ing at the Auditorium one of the finest dis- 
plays of the great works of art ever seen in 
this city was witnessed by the students. All 
of the great masters were represented, and 
in all over 200 pictures were displayed, in- 
cluding some by modern painters. There 
was a large crowd in attendance and a great 
many wore blue glasses. 


College Warblers at Willow Grove School. 

Monmouth, 111., Oct. 31, 1913.— Four of 
Monmouth's young men visited Willow 
Grove last night in behalf of G. O. P. The 
chauffeur smoked a cigar all evening but 
fortunately no accidents happened. Mr. Mc- 
Bane's plea for the principles on which our 
country was founded met with great ap- 
plause. At last reports the chauffeur was 
very happy. 

Leading College Wrecked in a Pitched Battle. 

London, Feb. 24, 1911. — It is reported that 
Monmouth College, a leading American in- 
stitution, has been entirely destroyed as a 
result of a pitched battle between the classes. 
Two students were killed and several others 
fatally injured. 

Monmouth, 111., Feb. 22, 1913.— Today is 
a memorable day in Monmouth College. It 
is the day of the traditional Washington s 
Birthday Banquet, when the freshman class 
in particular holds its festivities. But this 
year the banquet will be held without the 
traditional pitched battle. For it will be 
remembered that after the serious conflict 
of two years' ago. very careful precautions 
were taken that have prevented further 
continuation of such dangerous proceedings. 


Mr. White Contestant Has Some Guests. 

Aledo, 111., April 12, 1913.— Mr. White of 
Monmouth was a representative in the State 
Peace Contest held here last night. Two of 
the Monmouth boys came along with him 
and spent the night with him at the hotel. 
Entrance to and exit from his room were 
gained by means of a ladder placed by the 
window. Mr. White paid the bills.

Monmouth, 111., .Tune 6.— Prof. .J. H. .McMil- 
lan has celebrated one of his birthday anni- 
versaries during the last year. Professor 
JIcMillan has in his position in Jlonraouth, 

greatly systematized every department of 
the college. To his credit is largely due the 
fact that a student can not make away with 
extra number of cuts or escape any fees 

Lois E. McMichael to Rev. Geo. C. Vincent, 
pastor of Second Church, at home of the 
bride's father, Pres. T. H. McMichael, March 
the twenty-fifth, nineteen hundred and thir- 

(Aunt Susan will gladly hear ana answer 
any questions that bother girls thru the 
medium of this column). 

Dear Aunt Susan: There has been some 
discussion as to the proper length of time to 
spend, walking ten blocks with a young man. 
Will you answer as soon as possible? 

L. P. 

S. P. Opinion varies on this matter, nut 

I would advise you not to spend longer than 

forty minutes, especially if the young man 

is an old friend and you see him quite often. 

Aunt Susan. 

Dear Aunt Susan: Will you kindly help a 
young girl away from home? I have been 
writing to a friend of mine tor some time 
and wonder if once a day is too frequent. 
Will it detract from his studies? Does it 
seem too friendly? 

H. P. 

H. P. It is delightfully thotfull of you to 
think of his studies. From your letter I 
judge your daily letters to be a help and 
inspiration to any young man. So I do not 
consider it too frequent. 

Aunt Susan, 

Dear Aunt Susan: I write to you in des- 
paratlon. What would you do it you were 
called the "Loving Kid?" 

S. M. 

S. M. It is indeed a sorry thing to have 

your young life spoiled by such a title. I 
advise you to be dignified and exclusive and 
see if the appellation is not dropped. 

Aunt Susan.

Students Inaugurate an Omnibus Fee. 

Monmouth, 111., Jan. 21. — In a ballot taken 
today a four dollar omnibus tee was adopted 
by the students of the College by a vote 
of 188 in favor to 13 against. All of the 
students did not vote, but the number 188 
was sufficient to carry it thru the student 
body even if all of the remainder of students 
had been opposed to it. 

The tour dollar tee as adopted is to be col- 
lected each semester along with the tuition 
and is to be distributed as follows: 

All Athletic Purposes $2.20 

Forensic League, Debates, Ora- 
tion, etc 30 

Library 50 

Lecture course $1.00 

Total $4.00 

This semester the lecture course is to go 
to the Athletic Fund to make up the deficit 
that has haunted the Athletic Board tor 
some time. 

It is thot that the new fee will place the 
Lecture Course, the Debate and Oratory, 
the Library and the Athletics of the school 
on a good financial basis, and on the whole 
be more satisfactory to the students than 
the methods of the past. 

To Be Head of Nation. 
IVIarshall — Vice President. 

Nov. 6, 1912. — The election has resulted in 
a big landslide tor the Democrats. Wilson 
and Marshall carried the country by a big 
majority, completely swamping the divisions 
of the Republican Party. Theodore Roose- 
velt and William Tatt have wired their 
congratulations to the president elect. A 
large measure of the Democratic success is 
due to the college element of the country. 
There progressive leaders have attached 
quite a following, subtracting from the sup- 
port of G. O. P., and bringing its downfall as 
well as their own. 

The new administration promises to be 
conservative with progressive tendencies, 
and the outlook upon the next administra- 
tion is very bright. 


Weeniewursts Served. 

Monmouth, 111., Oct. 6, 1912.— The old 
brewery premises was the scene of a very 
pretty party last evening in honor of one of 
the old students. Weenies were served. Wo- 
man suffrage was advocated and stories 
were told around the fire. (As we are a tem- 
perance paper we can't tell what kind of 
elder they had to drink, but it is reported to 
have been very good). 

Forced to Get a New Supply .of Refresh- 

Monmouth, 111., Dec. 13, 1912. — The Fresh- 
men had a big festival in the banquet room 
of Wallace Hall, and they enoyed themselvs 
immensely till time came for refreshments. 
Then it was found that some vandal had 
disappeared with their entire supply of oys- 
ters. Of course they were very much disap- 
pointed, but another supply was quickly 
secured, and the festivities continued. 

No clue w-as left, but the officials are not 
leaving a stone unturned in searching for 
the gentlemen who stole the dainties. 


Happy Ending To a Playful Prank. 

Ind., June 30, 1915. — A beautiful wedding 
was witnessed here today, that of Mr. James 
McCoy of Monmouth College and Miss Leon 
Dietz, at the home of the bride's parents. 
The marriage terminates a delightful little 
Romance. Jliss Dietz had written her name 
on a shipping box and Mr. McCoy discovered 
it and opened correspondencce with her. 
which was concluded by the meeting and 
marriage of the two young people.

Former Coach Ried to Referee, 
-Monmouth, May 20. — A. G. Reid, former 
Jlonmouth College athletic coach, will act 
as referee at the Western Illinois Inter- 
Scholastic Field and Track meett, which is 
to be held here, May 31, under the auspices 
of the college. Mr. Reid, at present a promi- 
nent attorney of Waterloo. la., is a com- 
petent official, and his selection is probably 
the best choice Coach McMillan could make. 
At a meeting of the athletic board, the 
members talked over the plans of the day, 

tho no definite arrangements were complet- 
ed. Gold, silver and bronze medals have been 
ordered, as have the two banners, which are 
to be awarded to the winner of the meet, and 
of the relay. 

Acceptances from a number of the schols 
have already been received. Peoria, Ke- 
wanee, Galesburg, Lewiston, Chillicothe, Ale- 
do, Davenport, Roseville, Kirkwood, Biggs- 
ville, Stronghurst, Viola, Knoxville, Moline, 
Macomb, Abingdon and Monmouth have sig- 
nified their intention of coming. Others are 
yet to be heard from. Entries are to close 
May 23. 

Monmouth, May 17. — Arrangements are 
being made for that which is hoped to be- 
come an annual affair in Monmouth. Refer- 
ence is made to the Inter-High School track 
meet to be held on the college field on May 
31. The meet will be under the auspices of 
the college. Some sixty of the western Illi- 
nois high schools have been invited by the 
Athletic board to participate in the meet, 
and a number have already signified their 
intention of entering. 

April 28. — The Sophomores carried off the 
honors in an inter-class meet here today 
by a narrow margin. 

Monmouth, May 17, — In a dual track meet 
held at the College Park today, IMonmuutn 
lost to Knox by a score of 84-42. Denniston 
starred for Monmouth ; Spears for Knox. 




Monmouth, 111., Sept. 30, 1912.— The stu- 
dents of the college have aroused their 
"pep," somewhat, and at a meeting held re- 
cently, they elected LeRoy Pierce as yell 
leader for the year, with Dean Whiteman as 
his assistant. Both young men have the 
"pep" and should be able to make some 
great noises at the different contests during 
the school year.

Riddle was at a ball game. At his side 
sat a rosy cheeked lass. Around him en- 
thusiasm was at its highest pitch. But Rid- 
dle was indifferent to all this outward sur- 
face ardor. His zeal was far deeper. He 
seized the maiden's hand and held it very 
long. Then he glandced nervously around. 
One lady in the crowd, just behind him, was 
watching him. and on tlie very verge of pro- 
claiming the secret. But a glance was all it 
took for Riddle to realize the seriousness of 
the situation. He dropped his betters hand, 
his own went into his pocket. Out came a 
quarter, and over it went with a "sh-sh-sh" 
to the only one who had seen. The day was 
saved; the presence of two bits had saved 
a life's reputation; and the game went mer- 
rily on. 

It was in the International law class. The 
day was dreary and close. More than one 
weary head was nodding uneasily here and 
there thru the room. One in particular 
drooped heavily on the shoulders of its own- 
er and it was plain to be seen that one man 
was lost to the world completely. But with 
a sudden start the sleeper arousea him- 
self. All eyes turned toward him at once, 
and a snicker spread spontaneously thru 
the class. A neighbor near at hand tried 
poking the offender in the ribs, and he sup- 
posing naturally that his name had been 
called, slowly raised himself, adjusted him- 
self carefully to his habitual recitation 

posture and looked expectantly at the Pro- 
fessor for his question. A howl of merri- 
ment rang from the class in which even the 
good old Professor joined, and only then 
did Robert comprehend the situation and 
sink sheepishly to his chair. 

The young man was spending his evening 
with a charming young lady; 

"Chauncey" she said, "do ." 

"I beg your pardon, my nome is Henry." 
"Oh I I thot this was Wednesday." 

Typhographical errors, especially in tele- 
phone directories, have been responsible for 
many humerous incidents. The following 
conversation has been reported by mort 
than one person who has looked up a cer- 
tain number in the telephone directory. 

"Hello. Is Tom White there?" 

"No. What do you as me that question 
for? and I'll tell you why." 

"I wanted to talk to him." 

"Well Tom White isn't here. I'm an old 
lady that lives up on B street, and Tom 
White doesn't live here. I don't know him 
or . 

"Beg your pardon. I guess I've got the 
wrong number." 

One of the girls was found before a look- 
ing glass the other day singing; "Oh You 
Beautiful Doll!"

are completing your High School course It has prepared you for enter- 
ing College. A College Course is essential to your finished education. 
A finished education is essential to your highest usefulness. \ ou can 
get it if you will. WH^' NOT? 

have finished your High School course. ^ ou have been thinking of wait- 
ing a year or so before going on to College. A tempting offer is before 
you. Remember, there will be better positions after you have finished 
College, and you can do better work. Besides, delays are dangerous, 

have been in College one or more years. It will take from one to three 
years to finish. You are thinking of dropping out for awhile. The 
task looks hard. What will you gain? Each year m College is more 
valuable than the one preceding. Besides, the finished product is more 
valuable than the half done. WHY NOT FINISH? 

are planning to go to College. \ ou want a first class College, one that 
gives thorough training, one with good physical equipment, one with 
well balanced and varied courses, one with a strong and efficient teach- 
ing force and one that believes in character and life as well as in intel- 
lect and learning. You want a good College training at a reasonable 
cost, not a cheap College training. Cheap things are not worth while.

Letter to Our Readers. 

YOU have now looked thru this book 
on which we liave spent so much time and 
thot. We have endeavored to make a book 
that will please you. and we trust that you 
will overlook those things that may have 
displeased you. No book can be entirely 
free from faults, and it is our sincerest hope 
that our successors, the next Annual Board, 
may profit by our mistakes and be enabled 
to publish a better book than has ever been 
published by Monmouth College. 

This book, humble as it may be has cost 
sacrifice to our Photographers, editors, busi- 
ness managers, printers, engravers and ar- 
tists and to them we take the liberty of ex- 
tending your thanks. 

Yours for a greater Monmouth,
