MOUSA JIRIUS KALEEL 
"Mouser" 

Born in the country of Bib. Lit. I, 
and educated in L. P.'s native state, he 
should have been redolent of the "odot 
of sanctity" — sometimes he was. His 
nose-to-the-ground football playing was 
a joy to behold. He left when we 
didn't expect him to go and returned 
when we didn't expect him to come. 





EDWARD WILLIAM KLING 
"Bro" 
Alias (in Ardmore) "Ed Richard-

"Reds." Starred with the song h t 
"We're from Miss Baldwin's." We

All-around athlete iuid society man. 
Scarey's affiliation with our class was

1914, his class in reality, we can but 
wish him a speedy recovery from the 
distressing malady with which he has 
been afflicted. 




ADDISON LLECH BLISS 
"Addie" 

Big, hearty, carefree and funny 
Like Minot, he came to us from Bos-

but while he was here he was a per- 
petual joy to first floor South. The 
class, the college, and the tennis team 
are the losers by hs failing to return. 



FRANCIS MINOT 

"Franlf" 

The Adonis of the Venus and 
Adonis Club. The Kupp;nheimer and 
Arrow Collar companies used to model 
I heir ads on Frank — handsome, de- 
bonair, skeptical and possessed of an 
antipathy for Kelsey — "Don't call 
ME 'class'." For a fitting eulogy see 
his erstwh'le pupil, Ed Farr.

CARL LEISTER NEWELL 
"Pete" 

"I've known a lot of men be'ave

1915 never lost a son she more 
universally regretted. Deep rooted in 
the two short years when sweat-shirted

given friendship will always linger; — • 
a true symbol of "our class fraternity." 



GROVER CLEVELAND THEIS 
"Crover" "Dutch" 

A real Wellmann — said so him- 
self. From him Eighth Street held no 
secrets. Familiar with the stage 
entrance and the wmgs of the

North Barclay. Having a good com- 
mand of the English language even the 
Haverfordian accepted him — and he is 
now "in Journalism." 



G. AUBRE^- SOWELL 
"Aub" "A-a-h Sowell" 

A priest of Aesculapius, "Aub" 
came from the labs and lecture rooms 
of Freshman year at a medical college 
to acquire some "general culture" at 
Haverford. Silent, but very reliable, 
he went into class fights with a will. 
An eloquent lecturer on cadavers. 
Now leading his class at Temple Uni- 
versity Medical School. 



SELIM TOTAH 

"Selim" 

"He left us not so long ago. 
Carolling with a will, " 
and it was no new departure, for all 
Soph year he continuously carolled. 
North Barclay remembers it — and 
says it was not musical. Now Selim

follow him wishing we were as con- 
fident of our own success.

FRESHMAN YEAR

T WAS reported at Haverford that 1915 with 
its Assyrians, Chinese,. Japanese, Chafeinese. 
English, Americans, New Englanders and 
Jerry, was actually to enter. Brows were 
wrinkled and brains were wracked in search 
for a fitting reception. College customs were rejuven- 
ated. Hazing was abolished. 

An advance guard of "Hib" Garrett, Leiand and the 
Ardmore Printing Company soon confirmed the report. Then came Locke, the massive, with a beaming 
smile and a football, Jawn G., with his tennis trophies and a box of Phillip Morrises, and all the rest of the 
brilliant array. It would take too long to describe the whole scintillating procession, each one different 
and all worthyof attention. Besides, this is a history and not a confession of intrinsic merit alone. 

In the chapter "Fall" of each class history th ere are six divisions. One, the Cane Rush ; two. 



35

the Freshman Entertainment; three, four, five and six, Football. The Cane Rush is a Sophomoric 
amusement. We sported with 1914 for a time over a paltry five feet of lumber. They seemed to 
want it. We were always a courteous class, so, although we had nearly as many hands on the cane 
as they did, we let them have it by the scant margin of 14 to 12. They seemed grateful. We smiled 
and turned to things more germane to our lofty natures. 

The Entertainment seemed to promise well. With a large number of fellow aesthetes we prom- 
enaded a while in the cool of the evening, appreciating the delicate green of the moon and drawing 
obvious comparisons. We at times gave vent to our high spirits in ebullient song. After this soul- 
ful proceeding we were taken indoors and served a collation of moderately fresh tomatoes in the 
sanctified confines of the Greek-frescoed "old collection room." 

From a firm conviction of our physical perfection — or for some other reason — the assembled 
throng demanded that we appear before them in the state of nudity so customary with Venus, 
Apollo and other deities. We complied. Jerry's undeniable perfections prompted long-drawn 
"a-a-ahs" from the critiques — Fansler becoming especially enthusiastic. 

Tales and songs were in order to amuse the company. "We are from Baldwin's" sung in a voice 
hoarse with sentiment won thunderous applause for the sprightly Kling. Nitobe proclaimed with 
unblushing candor his advent from "Hell, sir." He ungraciously refused to describe the place, much 
to the disappointment of some of the Sophs who wished to check up his statements. 

In the vicinity of midnight we departed the hall with smiles dripping aquatically from our vis- 
ages and somebody's clothes draped about our shivering bodies. A lake of turbulent water and frac- 
tured vegetables lay shimmering in the moonlight and we had become Haverfordians by all the rites 
of baptism. 

Midway in the year, Mousa Jirius Kaleel, having glutted himself on opposing football players, 
and finding the curriculum too tame for his savage taste, became afflicted with the wanderlust. At 
the nearest approach to a sob-party that our merry band has ever had, "Moose" drew upon us for 
our entire allowance. After a lengthy song-fest and cider carousal at which many somber farewell 
speeches were made, the Moose and 1915 were conceded to be the best ever, and the gnarled warrior 
set out for Boston via Palestine. Moose was a genius. His "come-back" would have been enough to 
annihilate Jesse Willard. 

On the scrub, Farr, Levis and Pharo played an honorable season and for one year at least 1915 
was not accused of having a dearth of football players. Senior year with Eddie Farr on the Var- 
sity as our only player was still far ahead.

HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



Internal warfare of a friendly but vigorous sort deprived us of sleep until the upper-classmen 
began to come to breakfast in a bitter mood. Even Morley's cordial "good-nights" did not seem to 
afford them the proper amount of wholesome slumber. North Barclay, topped with Sophomore hats, 
would make noisy midnight onslaughts on South. South would repel the invaders and in the small 
hours of the morning would return the attack. Tired of the monotony of this, after a few sleepless 
nights the doughty warriors descended twenty strong on the fold of the Merionites. The six or seven 
inhabitants of this studious hall were scattered but not defenseless. Broken locks and bent bed-legs 
in the room of Felix and Monk Pharo bear witness to the efficiency of crunching cinders as a tocsin 
for manful combat. A bucket of water and the wrath of our future Y. M. C. A. President at feeling 
the cool liquid trickling down his back resulted in a mashed and bloody nose for Sowell. "A-a-ah, 
Sowell," was the morning greeting for the Medico during several weeks. Two attacks, and one 
invasion of a Junior's room (which wouldn't have mattered much if the Junior had not been the 
god-like Church) were required before the Merionites rubbed their eyes and considered a I'eturn 
attack. At two o'clock one morning, Sowell and 
the Monk woke up Morley, "Pete" Newell, Jonah 
and the Parson. Hallett was pulled from his bed. 
The terrible Dane was nerved to the attack and 
the raid commenced. The fire-escape as a means 
of ingress, a careful apportionment of victims and 
a firm and relentless execution of plans brought 
about the desired result. Sleeping forms were 
buried under beds. Pugnacious individuals were 
left recumbent in hallways, bloody noses were 
atoned for, the "Jarl" gave a timid tug at Karl's 
bed-clothes, and the invaders had retired before the 
stunned inhabitants had become quite aware of the 
course of events. 

North Barclay was our most interesting haul. 
The sidling form of "Jerry" Hill came to its nightlv 
rest here. Saco stroked his protesting violin much 
to the annoyment of the contemplative Hoopes and 
the unappreciative Chetty. He even drove some of

his neighbors to drink deeply of a hair-raising liquor (bay-rum) much to the consternation of Durgin. 
"Bro" Kling, the Rabelais of the class, kept ennui from the battered door. Mus-Tang slept the opu- 
lent sleep of the Oriental with a combative umbrella within easy reach. The imprecations which he 
muttei-ed in his sleep hurt no feelings since they were couched in the mystic language of Confucius. 

"The Count" spun endless discourses on tnings present 
and things to come. Among other things, he has lately 
said that "Karl was at college a good deal of the time 
Freshman year." "Hib" Garrett was also in this hall, 
and Coleman's modest lispings could be heard at times. 
On the third floor Levis and Locke lived in monastic 
solitude. The Sophomores seemed to take to these im- 
mortals though tney did black-ball them from their 
society at the first of the year. One evening they were 
given an exciting automobile ride by these gentlemen. 
Chetty Carey evolved a unique way of travel when devoid 
of funds on his return trip. The time that the "Count" 
nearly drowsed off into his long sleep because of a brass 
ink-stand hurled by the irascible Jerry proved that the 
latter was not always merely a fugitive shadow. But 
his "fugues" were speedy when they happened. Jerry was more a class institution than a member 
merely. We have not space here to do complete justice to the noble creature who might be found 
wound round and round a column before the dining-room door, like baby ribbon around a stick, 
whenever we went to replenish our material stores. Speaking of meat and drink, what could be a 
more awful warning against over-indulgence in the same than Jawn G.'s "two-beer hang over"? 

One of our chief exhibitions was two real Harvard students. Minot with his extreme world- 
weariness and the genial Bliss will always be dear to the hearts of many of our members. The 
"Venus and Adonis Club" with its letters from widows worth $40,000 and Honus Wagner as Secre- 
tary can be traced to the inventive minds of these gentlemen, as well as many another jovial prank

and interesting experiment. Perhaps a more extended description of their enterprises would be too 
risque for this sober publication. 

Two floors above their heads and in contradistinction with the Venus and Adonis Club was the 
Johnson and Boswell Alliance. Whipple and the learned Bowman held their own in the grim realms 
of knowledge. Bowman could scarcely restrain his passion for the sweet strains of Keats' "Prome- 
theus Bound" (as sung in dulcet tones by Votaw before his try 
at the Glee Club) except under the gentle influence of Shakes- 
peare's "Evangeline." South Barclay had its energetic mo- 
ments. Bitter fights took place between Cy and the whole sec- 
ond floor, Weikel and "Watso" occasionally lending their aid. 
Cy used to fight an iiatin-elle until a broken bottle punctured the 
velvet pinkncss of his skin and he was forced to clothe himself — 
materially hampering the efficiency of his attacks. Turner's 
bizarre quarters and the Turkish odor from the Tobe's room 
when Goph had taught him the uses of the cigarette made an 
intensely exotic atmosphere on the second floor. Brinton is said 
to have improved his cricket in bowling at a P. A. can. Once in 
a while there was studying. Grover's seminars before mid- fc_ 

years were, however, considered to uphold the major-weight of >i-" . 

this side of college life. 

In Founders, Dixie Dunn held joint sway with the Lathem-Goddard twins of sainted memory. 
The history of Merion and Founders is almost inextricrible. Founders was an annex of the former 
dormitory. Felix was wont to ascend to its eyrie at everv period — to leave a book, borrow some rai- 
ment, or to deliver an unwontedly brilliant jewel from his teeming mind. Jarl Egolf came, too, to 
hurl the latest canto of the vitriolic "Dunciad" at the quivering Dunn, or listen in terrific glee to the 
vaunting strains of the "Egolfiad." Pete Newell' s yellow shoes graced the window sill often and 
Sowell would at times consent to hold the company spell-bound with his vivid descriptions of a 
"cadavar" with the epidermis removed. Pharo also found Flounders an excellent place from which 




39

to observe human nature at its sprightliest. Maurice Hewlett does not belong to our class. But he 
should be at least an honorary member. The report is that Dixie Dunn found his "Forest Lovers" 
in a retired alcove of the library. From then until the end of the year no one else could find it there. 
Maulfrey, the Jarl, and Pete laid hands upon it after Dixie had done, and given his glowing descrip- 
tion. "Jonah" could scarcely be separated from it in time to leave for his summer vacation. 

In baseball we carried off the honors. Sowell won us the championship in the ninth inning of 
the last game of the series. He knocked out a three bagger with the game a tie, scored two men, 
and won our eternal gratitude. 

Speaking of Sophomores (we weren't but we might have been) it should go upon record that 

the right way to tame these individuals 
when their Sophomoreness becomes too 
acute is to put their beds up a tree, fling 
their bed-clothes to the breeze and de- 
part — (e. g., "Unk" Russell and his 
general insolence to 1915). 

The ancient Barker, en famille, the 
spoon feed at which Van Hollen, who 
liad superseded Ellison as class presi- 
dent, promoted the movement which 
removed a certain spicy perquisite of 
the same — at least by 1915 — as well as 
the cake-walk and Nitobe's "Red Lion 
Stock Company" — all this happened in 
our fresh and verdant year. We were 
an ingenious and versatile lot and our 
first year was more varied and colored 
than it would appear from this slight 
record. But it did come to an end. It 
had that in common with the freshman 
years of other classes.

N September 26, 1912, all roads led to Haverford. With sand or pine-needles still in the 
cuffs of our trousers, we straggled back, not "reluctantly to school" but with a Cheshire 
grin and a howl as we saw some familiar figure sauntering across the campus. The "glad 
hand" was the order of the day. Next we hounded Harry for our trunks and then— 
"Reinie, you're Moon, aren't you? You look fairly healthy— help me upstairs with this." 
Our class hats had lost their pristine purity but they were the symbols of authority and we flaunted 
them incessantly in the eyes of 1916 — providing th ere was nothing still due on them to "Yo." 

We had been often told that Soph year would see a huge depletion in our ranks and we were an.\- 
ious to know who had fallen by the wayside. But only four failed to answer the roll— "Watso" with- 
drew across the river and his cheery "Little game, Weik?" was heard no more in the land; Sowell had 



NINETEEN FIFTEEN RECORD 



taken up the study of medicine — soon to have named for him a little piccaninny whose arrival into this 
world he had supervised; Minot and Bliss no longer taught us the language of Boston — but Theis re- 
tained Frank's isosceles triangle walk and, on state occasions, his accent. But to solace our grief at 
these losses. Fortune dealt nobly with us. Kemp Taylor sagely preferred us to 1914 ; Dr. Hall's heart 
leaped within him — Vail came over the horizon, the reproachless Elwood, like Kemp destined to be 
a class president and winner of a "Corp." The mighty "Mouser" was joined by a compatriot from 
Palestine — Selim Totah, a cheerful spirit, but, according to Egolf, an exponent of somewhat informal 
method of fighting. By the way, note Egolf's attitude in the 
Sophomore picture. Helveston, deciding that indeed "this is the 
life" and that a day student merely exists, took up his abode in 
South in the closely segregated district occupied by Hill, Whipple 
and Theis. In short, 1915 showed an unprecedented capacity for 
sticking and a true appreciation of Haverford. 

Our class has always had a penchant for short story writing 
and this has not been better evidenced by the stories that were 
rife concerning our adventures of the summer. Truth is ever 
stranger than fiction — and a "perfect stranger" to some of our 
members. But among the noteworthy incidents for which we 
can vouch is Jack's invasion of a convent at Chatres. No man 
but Jack has ever slept there — even if he did have to sleep with 
"the cows and chickens" in the stable. Let us hastily pass over 

the inconceivable error of the dear old lady who, in the peculiar lighting eff'ects that a pocket search- 
light gives, mistook the "Count" for a second Tarquin! 

Keedle called a class meeting and Dodge, Locke and Coley were the Sandows selected to hold 
the cane for us. The reinies looked husky so we decided that they would be worth beating. When 
Murray shot off the gun, our triumvirate shoved the stick toward us and the rest was like taking 
canary seed from a cuckoo clock. The next Weekly had the heading — "Freshmen Overwhelmingly 
Defeated." Under our thoughtful care, the best in the reinies was brought out for the delectation 
of the multitudes assembled at the Freshman Entertainment. A loyal subject of the king gave a

rendition of "Jolly Yorkshire Lads" that was easily the sensation of the evening. A carload of 
tomatoes was brought in and our marksmanship was perfected as the freshmen endeavored to jump 
two at a time through a two by three window. As a result, the Old Collection room looked as if the 
German army had been vivisecting Belgian babies. Whereupon the indefatigable Oscar reported that 
the cleaning-up operations had taken eleven men and a colored lady forty-two hour.s — and the bill 
was proportionate. Anyhow it was a memorable occasion — for the reinies. 

Hazing at Haverford has been abolished — if you don't believe it ask at the office. But we took 
pains to give a certain modicum of spiritual education to the freshmen — giving it in the same good- 
humored spirit with which we had received ours the preceding year. But there was a leak somewhere, 
and the class found itself facing disaster. We attended a conference with the President. Some 
punishment appeared to be certain — it was merely a question of quantity. To ascertain this, 
"Levis," said the President, "what shall I do with thee?" Levi squirmed, swallowed three times, 
and gurgled, "Excuse me," collapsing into the arms of his admiring classmates. Somehow, it didn't 
seem so serious after that, and we were released with an admonition. 

At the head of the stairs to third floor North was a huge sign bearing the legend "Death to 
Reinies" — and not a freshman ventured into the jaws of death till after Christmas. Meekness is 
admirable in freshmen. Having given 1916 a fitting welcome to our midst, we turned our atten- 
tion to football. Locke, Kaleel, and Levis were our contributions to the team but the latter injured 
his leg and was kept out of most of the games. The season was unfortunate, particularly the Le- 
high game, but our trip to South Bethlehem was thoroughly enjoyable. As usual the season closed 
with the Soph-Fresh game. It was painful but It was far from scandalous. Above all things, 1916 
is a football class (witness their brutal 26-0 defeat of 1917). Yet our team, weakened by the ab- 
sence of Levis, fought them to a standstill during three quarters of the game. Toward the end of 
the first half they got the ball across for the only time. Our men went back in the second half and 
played hair-raising football. The end of the last quarter was unforgetable. We made first down after 
first down; Dods:e tore off a 50-yard run; more gains and the ball was on their 7-yard line and then — 
the whistle! We were beaten 6 to 0, but "the proper spirit" was all there. The team:

In prophecy of the skill that was to make them twice the college Doubles Champions, Weikel and 
Hallett reached the final round of the fall tournament. 

We were never blessed with any exceptionally brilliant football players, but after skimming ofi 
one good team we could still put a sturdy bunch of amateurs on the field. Wogglebug football is par- 
ticularly our forte. First the Juniors and then the Seniors bit the dust and we won the first of our 
two Wogglebug Championships. 

With the close of football season the sordid round of gym began and we yearned for the end of 
the third quarter that was to emancipate us — and incidentally leaked out the door by dozens while 
Lance was giving instructions in the cut and catch. Van Hollen was our most regular representa- 
tive on the soccer team and the season was very good. In the Intercollegiates, Harvard alone beat 
us and our defeat of Penn was the most thrilling soccer we have seen. 

North Barclay was the stronghold of college life as depicted in novels and comic supplements. 
The "I. W. W." or "I Won't Work" Society was an influential fraternity there. The names of the 
officers and members are suppressed in return for a slight contribution from their treasury. Karl

was too busy to be at college often or at classes even and with him Dean Gummere assiduously con- 
ducted a one-sided correspondence. Tobe added telegraph to his list of periodic fads. An oil stove 
made Megarge's budoir resemble the country store of fiction and Hill was imported from South to play 
bridge. "North" ran to peculiar decorating effects — Jack's and Tobe's Oriental domicile, the red bur- 
lap monstrosity that belonged to Ed and Bro ; and Doc's 
"Louvre" were the most striking of these. The padlock 
on Leland's and Coley's room made it a haven for such 
iniquitous pursuits as "hearts" and "500," and its "harem 
room" was a work of art. Ed, Tom, Jim, the Count, and 
Doc celebrated Lincoln's birthday, but the last did not 
answer the roll at the close. 

One of the most popular winter sports was "supeing." 
Hubert was selected from a crowd of fifty and made a 
glorious high priest in "The Jewels of the Madonna." 
Cy, in "Macbeth," made the ghastly error of carrying a 
tree (used in the "Birnam Wood" scene) into the wrong 
parade and fled without waiting for his stipend. 

Keedle, Tom, Levi and Henry contributed hand- 
somely to the "Chase Fund" on account of smoking in a "Physical Straining" exam. Ed. Grossman sold 
fourteen tons of the toothless "Barking Dog" to the smokers of the college. Doc and Henry conducted 
a sociological investigation of Atlantic City over Easter. After an all-night session with diphtheria 
germs as uninvited guests, Chet, scared blue as were the others, was well punctured with serum injec- 
tions. One of our most notable parties was given in the roof garden by Brink and Shaff — three girls 
and eight men, ably chaperoned by Bill Hare and Jack Keough. 

In the Emerson Medal Contest, Cy, Tang and Ellison wei-e compelled to yield to Bill Allen's fiery 
appeal for the teaching of "Sex Hygiene in the Kindergarten." Probably during no other year were 
our classes as full of life. Chem. I was the feature. Dr. Hall — "Harvey, what is an ore?" Harvey 
— "close the door?" Dr. Hall — "Ellison, what have I in this dish?" Jim (drowsily) — "Did you say 
fish?" Coley and Weik were so much amused by the course that they tried it again two years later.

Latin II was enlivened as usual by both professors and students. Dr. Gummere — "Falconer, 'quis fuit 
Dmnces?' Cy — "Turnus amavit Laviniam!" In French, Tang was guilty of many glorious solecisms, 
though Bowie ran him a close second. 

In the middle of April occurred the 
great Whitall fire, and, by common con- 
sent, the hero of the event was our Hubert. 
In no small amount of danger, Sook leaped 
about in the flames, smashed all the ma- 
chinery and plied the axe with a ven- 
geance. Church Longstreth's explanation 
of Hubert's method of putting out the 
blaze is open to question. Even Jimmy 
Carpenter went insane in his efforts to 
save the library and used language not 
suited to a Quaker college. 

As usual the Spring was idyllic and 
"study" was a word heard only on the lips 
of Bowman. At the Spring Opening we 
starred. With the lightest team on the 
floor, we walked away with the tug of war. 
Brink was the sensation of the under- 
water swim — seven lengths, three ahead 
of his nearest competitor. Junior Night — Haverford's only social event — saw Hendricks and Leland in 
"The Importance of Being Earnest." Cricket, tennis, track, not to mention "dingle-ball" and French 
cricket, held our attention. The Swarthmorons were beaten in tennis and track and Hallett leaped his 
way to an "H." Keedle, Ed, Coley, and Jim played on the first cricket team and were chosen for the 
Canadian trip. Chetty and Bowie were on the second team. The Soph-Fresh game was a massacre — 
153 to 80. Brinton scored an 89 not out.

The last epidemic of examinations was survived and we stretched ourselves on the campus and 
drowsily watched Bergdoll sail over. Then Class Day arrived and we ate ourselves into a state of coma 
in honor of the departure of 1913. More or less unwillingly, we packed, nailed up our closets and 
strolled down to the station wondering if the summer was to offer us such delights as had been ours 
during Sophomore Year.

ITH our natural dignity in complete subjection to sheer exuberance of spirit, we cheerfully 
approached the North entrance to the dining-room, entirely oblivious of Sangree and other 
timid Seniors. Here a shock awaited us. Perched on the rail, his birdlike features seamed 
with the myriad responsibilities of his position, it was the Count who first brought home 
the realization that we were Juniors. "Two weeks last Saturday," he replied tersely, when 

Tom asked how long he had been back. Slightly oppressed by a new appreciation of our merits, we 

descended en masse upon the newly created "Sanger Fest." 

At the first our personnel was not much changed. Totah had left us for the questionable delights 

of the Aluminum trade, a pastime which has chafed sorely upon more than one of our members.

acts convinced all comers that he was better off in Baltimore. Pete Newell had finally severed hio 
affiliations, though next year we saw our "little friend of all the world" an embryo osteopath in Phil- 
adelphia. Tang, during this year a temporary deserter to Wisconsin, has found first loves to be best 
and is now an Ardmore-abiding Senior, with landlady and bath-tub. The passing year made other 

breaches. Jimmy found the pace too hot and retired to 

Germania to recuperate, re-entering as our bequest to 
1916. Karl joined the business world. That greatest 
loss, which was so terrible a blow to all of us, we can 
only mention. A more adequate remembrance of Hib- 
bard is elsewhere in our Record. 

Our choice of rooms was cosmopolitan. South and 
Merion were most popular. A select coterie still affirmed 
the charms of North, and other halls were well repre- 
sented. Shaff and Brink moved out of, Emmett and 
Whip into, the attic, and in these remote seclusions were 
witness-rd Jonah's first deviations from the narrow path, 
a judicious combination of the "Droll Tales" and Dixie's 
anecdotes having undone all the ill effects of Westtown. 
At Merion the Monk radiated sunshine, immured amid 
pipes, books. Lance's piano, and reams of Genial Poetry. 
Don and Tobe were furthest North in New Lloyd. Great 
scholastic achievement was expected from this seclusion, 
but the prophets were disappointed, although a grade of 
88 7f was announced for the third quarter. Investiga- 
tion proved that, as usual, the two were combining their 
possessions. 

We lost no time in examining the merits and defects 
of our various electives. Dr. Gummer's "Chaucer"

kcIj" most of all, by knocking down a cold "A." 
Whispers of <l>. H. K. were rife, but Levi, scorn- 
ing utilitarian motives, gracefully relapsed into 
more consistent grades. A small and select 
group vainly wrestled with the irascible doctor 
in Chem. II, and the recording angel must have 
a whole chapter devoted to the havoc of those 
"Red Monday" quizzes. By no means the most 
remarkable answer was the ready response of 
Kemp when demanded the names of two salts of 
tin: — "Tin Stannate, and Tin Stannite, Sir!" 
The engineering department continued to attract 
some, P. R., Egolf, and the Crosmans being most 
in evidence. Felix, as yet blissfully ignorant of 
a more cultural future, gleefully turned door 
knobs in the shop. Breaking into song at this 

pursuit one day, he brought Weaver tearing down tidiii the third lloor ti 
in the machinery ! 

By rights we should have won the Wogglebug Championship which, with our Soph and Senior 
victories, would have made us champions all three years. We had easily defeated 1916 and were 
playing 1914 for the title. For some reason, the last quarter was played in total darkne.ss and dur- 
ing a scrin;mage Kelly put the ball under his jersey and crawled down the sidelines for the only 
touchdown. The game went on with Coley's headguard and not until time was called did Kelly's 
shrieks from behind the goal attract attention. That the referee was a member of 1914 has been 
pointed out, but we have never felt the need of being anything but generous — even with champion- 
ships at stake. 

The snow fell and we retired to pipe and book with weekly sallies upon the diversions of Phil- 
adelphia. Ed, Tom, Megarge, and Chetty indulged in an occasional hand and Cy turned the nose 
of the Civics Club toward Prohibition and the open seas. Even the Classicists were heard of

through the famous incident of the overshoes; — going to a meeting at Dr. Baiter's house, Bowie was 
much delighted by Dunn's arctics on Whipple's feet. After the meeting, L. G. found another pair 
even more disreputable and held them above his head shrieking sarcastic comments. "Dick" watched 
the proceeding with an aggrieved expression — and no wonder, for the maligned footgear was his 

own ! On learning the Bowie was inconsolable, be- 
lieved the sedulous attentions of three years come to 
naught, and even refused to partake of tne refreshments. 
We had been back from the Christmas holidays but 
a short time before two changes became apparent. Tne 
first, not universally noticed, but none the less poignant 
to a few enthusiasts, was the removal of the Rathskeller 
to make room for the Arcade Building. Neither Soulas' 
nor Lauber's or even more expensive retreats can ever 
hope to vie with the delights afforded by the subter- 
ranean mysteries of the "Ratz." The other metamor- 
phosis was primarily confined to the Tobe though it 
quickly radiated to all who came in contact with thai 
volatile personality. One of our three delegates to the 
Student Volunteer Convention at Kansas City during the 
vacation, Yo's nature seemed to have undergone a posi- 
tive avatar — no other word can do it justice. The most 
immediate result was the famous "Morning Watch" held 
before breakfast in the old Y. M. C. A. room. Tobe and 
Loring were always there, P. R. and Goph sometimes. 
No greater testimony to Tobe's enthusiasm can be given 
than the fact that Gene was once present. The second 
morning the alarm clock was on the job at 6 :30, but Gene 
failed to respond. He borrows an alarm clock when he 
wants to rise early now.

The perennial Midyear came, saw, and was ignominiously conquered. New stars blazed forth 
upon the scholastic firmament, chief among them bsing Shaff, who, gently cradled amid countless hours 
of Biology, corralled A's in a way that made George and Bowie look anxiously to their laurels. Dixie 
cursed the family tie which had drawn him into Math. III., turning thence only to pour the vials of in- 
vective upon German A and its bristly sponsor. To this baleful influence are traced those strange rheu- 
matic twinges which assailed T. K. about this time. It w'as when the simplified spelling "bee" was par- 
ticularly rampant in Center Barclay and the preceding bit of English as she is writ was — we blush to 
admit — purloined from the abode of Henery Joal. Whether or not that mild and melancholy eye was ever 
cast upon the recumbent "stif" is very problematical. Poor Henery may have been severely taken to 
task about those shoes and trousers, but it was not his fault. He never got the note and it rests today 
as the most cherished relic in the scrap- 
book of the present compiler. 

The wholly delightful interval be- 
tween Midyear and Junior Day was inter- 
esting though marked with no untoward 
incident. Several smokers, enlivened by 
the martial strains of Egg's class song, 
demonstrated clearly that we had left be- 
hind all semblance of factions and were 
bound together — North, South, Center, 
Merion and Lloyd — by bonds which the 
passing years can only strengthen. Tobe 
became Editor-in- Chief of the "Haverfor- 
dian" and P'elix was also numbered among 
the immortals. Under his temporary 
leadership as president the class stood 
solidly behind the existing honor system, 
weathering the storm in a way which 
brought forth congratulations from Isaac.

Bowie and Jonah joined Kemp as our qualified gymnasts. Goph was elected soccer captain. Loring be- 
came entrusted with the difficult task of assuring oar salvation, and after the tour of the musical clubt; 
to Atlantic City (a trip about which the Count and Keedle tell incredible yarns) Kemp and Hubert 
were selected in the twin branches of harmony. How well they have fulfilled their trust is shown by 
the unparalleled success of the clubs this year. 

Our Junior Banquet, held at the Hotel Continental, deserved notice both for its success — "Mike" 
Bennett was our guest of honor and "Aub" Sowell and "Bro" Kling were present to remind us of old 
times — and for subsequent adventures. Starting in a body, we soon divided into congenial groups in 
quest, by no means fruitless, of amusement. Of Yo's experience at the back door of the "Troc" and of 
the kaleidoscopic splendor of the Chorus Girls' Ball — to the inmost recesses of which, Yo, Felix and 
the Count penetrated — we will not treat. Of the trio, two made the 12:15 — but they were without 
Henry ! 

And then to Junior Night, which was a universally acclaimed success. With characteristic enter- 
prise we had transferred the nucleus of festivities from the Gymnasium to the Dining Room, trans- 
formed to another Eden by the skillful artistry of Saco and his minions. In the Memorial Garden, Le- 
land had had an attractive supper prepared, at which only 191.5 and her guests were present — a dis- 
tinctively class feature which did much to enhance the evening's success. Henry, too, was our only rep- 
resentative in the cast of "Engaged" — though Paul Hendricks wielded a power unseen as Stage Man- 
ager and Sam Wagner officiated for the Cap and Bells in some responsible capacity, exactly what, no 
one has been able to discover. Indeed Sam himself is distinctly hazy upon this point. When the lights 
faded on a very wan and weary class, we none of us counted our mental worries and physical strains, 
so more than compensated were they by a Junior Night which, at the least, stands head and shoulders 
above any we can remember. 

The perfect days of May dreamed by in a placid succession of enjoyment. We were care-free 
hedonists in that most glorious period of our college course — the Spring of Junior year. From Cope 
came the crisp crack of ball and bat, but the non-cricketers rested easy. Were not Eddie, and Coley, and 
Keedle more than upholding our laurels at the wickets and assuring themselves of the subsequent 
English tour? To be sure, it is a rara avis among classes that can claim a wicket-keep like Eddie or 
such a bowler as Keedle. And then there was that superhuman victory over 1914. The nine Gods of

Tarquin have blazoned for eternal glory how Brint, going in first, stuck through the diabolic bowling 
of Stacker Stokes and Captain Garrigues for a glorious 57, not out, and how silent Mac, reliable as the 
Bank of England, batting last man with four runs needed for a tie, calmly blocked for four overs or cut 
for an occasional "one" until we had conquered ! 

On Walton, too, we were in the limelight. Shaff heroically trotted gruelling distances and George 
showed amazing prowess as a high jumper. His tie for second at the Penn relays and his first at the 
Middle States with a leap of five feet eleven must be recorded. By the time this goes to press we are 

sure George will have completely 
fathometl the art of jumping! He 
captains the team this year; a 
worthy leader. 

But it is well known that Spring 
stirs budding youth to other 
achievements than those of phys- 
ical prowess. Toward the end of 
May came Parson Allen's famous 
pilgrimage to Woodside. All that 
happened has never been revealed, 
but it is known that Coy Young, 
to whom we must attribute P. R.'s 
downfall, was busily engaged in 
making the impromptu acquaint- 
ance of two of the gentler sex when 
Allen, who from moral or diplo- 
matic reasons had remained in the 
background, approaches melodi- 
ously jingling four nickels between 
his hands and says with a killing 
smile: "Hello, girls, wanter go on the scenic?" 

"Linquenda tellus et domiis et placens uxor," we once chanted in Latin II, and so, with Class Day 
and Commencement, Junior year faded into the never-to-be-forgotten past. To the assembled families 
of the dear departing, Prexy read forth the various honors and 1915 held far more than her fair share. 
Bowie and George both won the signal honor of 'l>.B. K. So, with a vague presentiment of what Com- 
mencement really meant, 1915 clasped hands and fled away amid the swiftly falling shadows.

ITH President Sharpless' admonition still ringing in our ears, "o'er moor and fen, o'er crag and 
torrent" swarmed 1915 to the trysting place, grimly determined to show our worth as con- 
trollers of the college destiny. For had we not passed through two of the Summers which, lo 
quote our Daisy Dean, "receive us boys and return us men?" And, though doubting the appli- 
cation of "the first's the worse, the second's the same," we were ready to assign our last year together to 
its proper rank. 

From the first confused supper when Don Baird's operatic tenor rang clear above the strains of 
"Boys Again We Are Here," we were aware of new and potent influences in our midst. Our White 
Hopes were McCracken, White, Wain, and Webster, while from an inferior class Bye and Harvey were 
preparing to make the leap that should bring them distinction. From England's bally clim.e carr.e Coley, 
Keedle and Eddie Crosman, replete with wardrobe and war anecdote, burning to pex'petuate our cricket 
fame, while Jack Gummere eagerly forsook the pitchfork, and our own George shook free his Titian locks 
from the toils of Intercollefi:iate tennis to lay his hand upon the class tiller. Gi'over Cleveland had de- 
parted for Germania and Journalism. 

"First things" claimed our immediate attention. Coley started the football meeting with a roar

that grew in volume till that eventful day when the victor's mead, so opportunely overflowing, was 
snatched from our lips. Under the tuition of the best coach ever at Haverford, the peerless "Mike" 
Bennett, our men were molded into an absolutely harmonious machine. With all eyes fixed on the 
Swarthmore game, college spirit was everything that even the alumni could demand. What a game 
that was! — it has even eclipsed in our memory the great day when F. & M. bit the dust of their own field. 
On the defense, our line was the sturdiest of stone walls, making up in nerve what it lacked in weight; 
on the offense the two backfields were so even that a wholesale nervous prostration threatened both 
grand stands. True, the enemy tied the score in the last few minutes and went home in high glee, but 
none the less that conflict will remain indelibly as the greatest game of our four years. And next year! 
Let X equal exactly the same team ready to play again ; let y equal another year's experience under 
Mike Bennett; let z equal the potentialities of the class of 1919 — then, .r-|-(/-|-z=what score? Quelle 
joie! Congratulations, Ed. 

In this season, too, P. R. fell in love, and Ed Farr initiated the disheartening pursuit of the pig- 
skin that was to bring him near-wreaths and 
crosses and finally the radiant "H." Megarge, 
too, defied his jinx till it laid him low for aye, 
while Chet felt surge within him the untrammeled 
Wogglebug spirit, and obeyed its call like a true 
son of Haverford. Meanwhile Eddie Crosman's 
lean figure could be seen flitting about the grid- 
iron with the nervous activity of the Manager. 
From the courts the progress of the Bowie-Whip- 
Dixie-Jonah foursome was evident to the dis- 
tracted ear. Don framed "News" headlines and 
issued the call to soccer. To vindicate the readi- 
ness of 1915's response, we need only con the 
names of Felix, George, Tobe, Jack, Shaff, and 
Coley. How the fortunes of war wavered, how

sounded, and how the "Watchful Dummere" guarded the goal are now matters of history. In the Inter- 
class series we emerged the victors by a safe margin. Tender in our memory is "Get the Weikel!" but 
he could not be got. When the la.st "dauntless" third team game was over, we may imagine Gene 
breathed a sigh. 

In Wogglebug football, too. Captain Chetty's team could not be denied. From these gory contests 
George survived with eyes sufficiently unimpaired to win the tennis doubles with Weik, while Sam stood 
by and calculated the expense of new courts and backstops. 

In the waning Fall days Haverford gained and lost by the 
advent of the Lubin Company. Only on our Junior Day had such 
a galaxy of beauty invaded the campus. Cuts were taken by the 
dozen and Doc Watson held forth upon blue-eyed guinea pigs to 
a class composed of McNeill and Hallett. All activities were sus- 
pended in favor of the canned drama. Was it in his capacity 
as Y. M. C. A. president uplifting histrionic morals, or as a mem- 
ber of the Cap and Bells that "L. P." fell from grace so flagrant- 
ly? It was a three days' wonder and then, imperial sanction 
being withdrawn, they "folded their tents like the Arabs" and 
sought pastures new. 

Shaff discovered bugs. Pal Moore bred flies with pink and 
green orbs ; Tweedy came and went ; the musical clubs suffered 
at Overbrook ; and the gym escaped destruction by a margin so 
narrow that Kemp was fain to weep. Brink entertained himself 
in Phil. V and from these artistic beginnings we may thank Doc 
Watson for the "Merion Menace," which burst upon our jaded 
senses just before Christmas. This proved to be no sporadic 
growth, but one well connected with the "pocketbook nerve" of 
the undergraduates — to such an extent that "Life" is reported to 
have bought up the whole volume of "Menaces" and "Scarlets" 
at a price only to be whispered of, and Whip tore his hair lest the 
artistic fount be drained ere its time. 
Meanwhile the Count, true to Tom's definition, was rarely seen when not in a hurry, and in addition

to many trips to New York, condescended to instruct us all in the gentle art of ad-getting. How much 
of this was wasted on irresolute ears n;ay be judged from the story of one of us who cornered the man- 
ager of an Atlantic City hotel, pleaded fervently with him for ten minutes and was finally greeted with 
"Why, I'm sure Haverford must be a very nice place, and your Book must be a very nice sort of book, 
and I'm sure I'd give you an ad — if I weren't a guest here!" 

With the closing in of winter, the "little games" spoken of so fervently by Musty, once more swing 
into view, but were forced to compete with Campus Golf for pre-eminence in the field of Winter 
Sports. The memoi-y of the Count's side-arm delivery and the rarrimi's stealthy ai)proach must re- 
main forever green. Musty and his landlady gave us a feed 
at which George's scruples against Ardmore cider were irre- 
vocably demolished. Paul staged a screaming Cap and Bells 
Try-out; Ed Farr became president of the Baseball Club; 
Jack Gummere's chatelaine was much in evidence, and the 
Founders Club gave its first banquet. 

The close of vacation found most of us facing the grim 
i^alities of Senior Thesis and Midyears. Di.xie redoubled the 
i.itention given to his reptiles. George was to be seen almost 
nightly in Darkest Philadelphia listening for the morning song 
f,f a certain species of bird, while Cyrus, can in hand, made 
the round of the campus trees and prayed for the Howing of 
the sap. The preponderance of 9.3's resulting from Midyears 
proved as never before 1915's scholastic attainments and 
forecast a multitude of keys. 

Meanwhile Hubert's solemn guitar continued to beat out 
the cadences of "Darkey's Dream," and 191.5's Glee Club 
wrestled with the intricacies of the "Medley." Praises be to

Dr. Spiers for his faith in these dark days! Hubert's "one-two-three," Saco's "By the Sea" and Don's 
"eyes of bloo — oo" were the high spots. The Atlantic City trip conjures up visions of Saco, the selsame 
sea, and the lady encountered there. 

Elwood was now forced to abandon his Fletcherized lunch in favor of the Class Meeting, where he 
presided with dignity and vigor. Tobe, with a sentiment touching to behold, bade his "Haverfordian" 
Board farewell, while Don could be seen in the "News" office figuring profits with a satisfied smile. 
Saco conducted a real tour to hear Billy Sunday, while the Egolphus sped away to the strains of the 
Columbia. Felix was summoned to the S. P. C. A. on a charge of cruelty to dogs ; Coley called on the 
grass widow and suffered a burglar scare in common with the Department of Mixed Theology; Harold 
played an active part in the Class Tea, and Chetty blushingly announced the birth of Moses G. 

In the gym was activity indescribable. Hubert plunged his way to glory, while Bowie became mas- 
ter of the fly-away. Jonah spurred the refractory steed and Kemp, with long face, eked out the last days 
of a blood-stained career. Tobe proved himself a good angel on more than one occasion — notably that 
on which he fed Bowie Chow Main till 2 A. M. 



In the sheds Keedle's familiar figure was seen 
diligently bowling and prophesying low scores 
for Penn, while George emulated the early bird 
and issued his call accordingly. 

The last and best class banquet was enjoyed 
at the Merion Golf Club with perfect concord 
and the Crosman cousins seated diametrically 
opposite each other. That certain of us slipped 
momentarily from grace has been a grief to us 
all, though they give us to understand that their 
sweet young lives will not be blighted by it.

and our vacation for once coinciding. After 
that, the deluge — Ethics theses had merely

the Senior thesis. Dreaded for four years, it was upon us. Many and strange were the subjects we 
chose, but we decided to profit by example and write them ourselves. And all this must be done in the 
greatest season of the year and in our last college year ! As we go to press those bitter-sweet days are 
dawning — sweet in the pleasures of cricket, track, tennis and outdoor loafing; bitter in the thought that 
we will soon have run our course and know those delights no longer. And to you who have other years 
before you here we offer the most heartfelt congratulations as we regretfully take our leave.

Litterati 




HE Haverfordian. founded in 1877, is one of America's oldest college magazines and is Haverford's most 
venerable institution. It has always ranked with the best in literary quality, but like all such publications 
it has been somewhat aloof from the college body. This is the problem that the 1913 editors faced and 
they endeavored to meet it by printing ideas and facts rather than sentiment and imagination, and by includ- 
ing the stage and music in its pages, as well as literary comments. As a result the Haverfordian was more 
cosmopolitan and varied in its interests than had been the case before. 

It has been known as the "1915 Monthly" from the overwhelming number of contributions to it from this class. 
Pharo and Nitobe made the Haverfordian in Freshman year. The former worked on the Exchanges, wrote a couple of 
stories and some essays. But his forte has been verse, originally of a "misty" nature. Nitobe contributed ten short stories, 
seven articles and essays, and some dozen editorials and pastels. His subjects have been political, dramatic, musical, religious, 
aesthetic, risqui-, ethical and what not. His titles have ranged from "Kansas City Convention" and "Friends at the Front" 
to "Brahms at a Quarter" and " fhe Cabaret Singer." In Senior year he was Editor-in-Chief. 

Kempton Taylor joined the Haverfordian in Sophomore year and contributed several clever and individualistic stories. 
His most valuable work was the emphasis which he put on the Alumni Notes. Van Hollen became a member of the 
Board soon after Taylor and wrote some rather chatty essays and several pieces of verse which attracted unusual at- 
tention. 

In Junior year, Morley won the Short Story Contest and since his election to the Board has proved to be of the 
soundest literary merit. He won the second Garrett Memorial Prize for verse in his Junior year and in Senior year won 
the Browning Society prize for undergraduate verse. 

The "College Weekly" was founded some six years ago and for ^ix years it stood still. Then in 1914-15 Van 
Hollen was elected and the "Weekly" had a new birth. It was re-christened the "Haverford News." Four and a half 
columns of news were added by reducing the print. its whole appearance became more neat. Every activity in college 
has been adequately covered and its editorial oolicy has been for the best interests of Haverford and has been con- 
structive. We now get "All the News. All ihe Time, on Time." Mathematically speaking. 
Van Hollen -j- the "Weekly" = "Ths Haverford News."

The Musical Clubs 




N LAST Class Day, when we saw the Seniors smuggling the Glee Club in to lend harmony to what was 
termed on the program "Singing on the Steps by the Class," we realized the pride which a musical class 
should feel — and, beyond doubt, 1915 is such a class. 

In Freshman year, L. P. Crosman, Allen, Leiand and Falconer survived the strenuous "weeding-out" of 
the Glee Club Trials; while Brinton, Crosman, Howson and Shaffer made good in the Mandolin Club. Egolf, 
according to the vagaries of the artistic temperament, was a member at times and at times was not — but when he was, 
the critics held that he was as good as even the great Bob Locke. During this year, the first step toward resuming entente 
cordiale with Swarthmore was taken in a joint concert at which our hostile allies were, by common consent, routed. 

The following year, Hendricks and Taylor also added to our prestige in the Glee Club and Allen became an integral 
part of both clubs. The posters for our concert at Lehigh were entitled "Music Test" and the Haverford aggregation 
earned an "A." 

In Junior year, Helveston, Shaffer and Vail joined the already large representation from 1915 in the Glee Club, 
which Allen led, and Turner made the Mandolin. The Atlantic City and Merchantville trips proved more than enough 
amusement to compensate for the long evenings of practice. 

Our Senior year saw the addition of Baird and McCracken to the Glee Club. Taylor and Howson were the 
leaders of the Glee and Mandolin Clubs respectively and probably never before had the Haverford musical clubs reach" ' 
such a high pitch of efficiency. College interest has been strong and the enthusiastic rivalry which characterized the tria'- 
for places argues continued excellence in future years.

^ 



HE Class of 1915 has contributed more memljers to the Capj and Bells Club than any other class since the 
club started. During our hieshman year the club gave two perforrriances, "The Dark Lady of the Sonnets" 
and "Le Medecin Malgrr Lui" in which W. H. Leland and L. P. Crosman took parts. Both were elected 
at the Annual Meeting that year, and the latter wa:, made Assistant Treasurer and continued in that office 
for three years. 

In Sophomore year "The Importance of Being Earnest" was given and we were represented by the two men of 
Freshman year and also by P. C. Hendricks. Hendricks, Samuel Wagner, Jr., and P. R. Allen were elected during this 
year. 

"Engaged" was the play given by the Club on our Junior Night. Leland was the only Junior in the cast. Leland 
and Crosman took leading parts in a musical parody on a scene from "Romeo and Juliet" written by G. C. Theis, '15. 
During both Junior and Senior years, N. B. Coleman showed ability as a manager and Wagner was active in genera! 
club work. M. H. Weikel wrote a play of merit and was elected to the club with H. A. Howson, and K. P. A. 
Taylor. 

We were all too busy to take part in the dramatics of Senior year but the class was very active in other branches of 
work for the club and Hendricks was made Vice F'resident.

HANKS to the coaching of "Mike" Bennett, our light, inexperienced football 
team was pounded into a well-trained unit. The schedule was not easy and 
I we met defeat three times out of eight, but the great game with the Swarthmorons, 

L though a bitter disappointment, was not a defeat. The scores: Haverford vs. 

Washington, 9-0; N. Y. U., 7-13; Stevens, 38-0; F. & M., 0-14; Hopkins, 
Swarthmore, 3-3. In the class series the Soph-Fresh game was not played and 191) 
won the Wogglebug Championship. 

The gym team met with considerable success under Captain Taylor's leadership. Th- 
scores ran as follows: Haverford vs. Annapolis, 10-44; Columbia, 37-17; N. Y. U., 33-21 ; 
Penn, 22-32. Taylor, Bowman and Votaw were the contributions from our class. 

In soccer it seemed to be as unfortunate a year for us as it was an exceptionally good 
year for the other colleges. Captain Van Hollen's men scored as follows: Haverford vs. 
Princeton, I -I; Cornell, 0-3; Columbia, 0-4; Harvard. 0-1; Penn, 0-3; Yale. 2-0. In 
the class series. 1915 won the championship. 

During the winter, Swarthmore made the mistake of challenging us to a swimming meet. 
Our team, hastily made up for the occasion, met them in their own pool and crawled to 
victory, 31-22. 

Captain Hallett called out his track men early in the Spring and he and Jack Keough 
prophesy that Swarthmore will receive a more thorough defeat than that of two years ago 

The cricket team, profit no by their expericr.ces on the other side, promises to be a 
record-breaker and Captain Brinton and Manager Taylor have arranged a "Cricket Week" 
to follow the close of college. 

For the first time, baseball has been put on an organized footing, a club has been 
formed, of wh'ch Farr was elected President, and a series of games arranged.

NLY when the good ship "Minnehaha" had dropped her pilot and the shores of America were fading in 
7"^^^ the distance did the boys reahze that the great trip was really on. Some of the more progressive spirits had 
I ) already spotted some other passengers who they thought could help in passing the nine days which must 
\^ Jy elapse before England was reached and before the setting of the sun on the first day we were able to introduce 
the rest of the crowd. (Too great thanks cannot be given to Dr. and Mrs. Barrett in this connection.) TTie 
next day was largely spent in getting acclimated and the morning practice on the forward deck, the regular deck sports, 
and other sports were in full swing. The College representatives "cleaned up" in most of the deck sports in the two-day 
tournament. After dinner each evening the crowd gathered for a little singing and such paraphrases as: "Here's to 
Captain Claret in the Minnehaha Garret," we amused the other passengers as well as ourselves. On several evenings the 
moonlight proved too much for one or two and Mr. Cope was much worried by their absence. There was no sickness 
though Coleman and Will Webb almost succeeded in kidding each other into that state. 

There were many amusing episodes in our travels through England — the chief of whicli being a certain occasion 
when one of our members forgot his chemise de nuit. He was somewhat flustered on having tea served at seven the next 
morning. The "King's Arms" Hotel could relate a thrilling tale of discovery and escape which would read like a 
romance. After our victory at Eton, Mr. Cope created no little amusement by throwing his hat far out in the field 
and then, entering the pavilion, was seen to shake his fist at a picture of one of their venerable cricketers and mutter: 
"I have been waiting twenty years for this!" Christy, with his never- 
failing good nature and his parties, was beloved by all, both masculine 
and feminine, and he just about owned the taxi-cab business while we 
were in London. Undoubtedly we should have won more matches 
but on looking backward we have nothing to regret and much of which 
to be proud. 

In closing, let me thank once more those two gentlemen who 
managed our trip so wisely and well and who made it possible for 
us to enjoy a summer which we shall never forget.

DONALD GALBRAITH BAIRD 



"Don" 



Don came South from Lehigh University with the birds at the beginning 
of our Senior year. Seeing Haverford and recognizing congenial spirits, h*- 
discontinued his southward flight and has sung amongst us all the year. Where- 
fore we are glad. 

Dr. Spiers predicted an unprecedented success for the Glee Club as soon 
as Donald tried out for the same. It was in no slight measure owing to Baird 
that his prophecy was fulfilled. Not only can Don sing in many tongues, he 
can also eat in them. For a while he ate his meals in Italian. Then the 
French table was started. He has been eating in French ever since. It is 
true that for a week he looked somewhat emaciated, but his health soon picked 
up — with his French. 

In the early Fall, this one and that asked, "What is Baird like?" And 
this one and that was answered, "He is a gentleman, has read much in books, 
and what with his singing and his company we are well pleased with him. Go 
thou and get to know him."

EDGAR MILTON BOWMAN 



"Be 



Few of us can forget our first introduction to Bowie. On one of the very earliest evenings of our collegiate career, 
when we — WE — attired as September Morn, faced the derisive howls of the Freshman Entertainment, Bow was the per- 
sonification of Tyranny. Armed with a dirty cloth and a pail of water he exer- 
cised a loo enthusiastic censorship over our smiles. Whisper it, friends — but 
"L. G." once was fresh. Inconceivable as it may seem, his solicitous comrades 
have more than once ridden him on a pole. "Aw, fellers, these are my best 
clothes." Let us omit his hasty words of wrath as he brought that same pole 
down upon the head of Weikel. 

We think of Bow particularly as a student. What a figure he used to make 
in Phil. I. — one foot on the chair in front of him, chest thrown out, hands folded 
Napoleon-fashion behind him, as he gave, word for word, all that James knew 
about the "fringe." Prizes were as meat and drink to him — Bib. Lit., Math, 
and the Garrett contributed to his library — and as we go to press he is not done 
yet — ipse dixit. In Freshman year the denizens of third floor South would listen 
breathlessly to his heavy tread as he strode down the corridor toward breakfast 
and then would rush to his room and copy his math problems. Many thanks. Bow. 

Bowie is the most popular fellow in the class — with the faculty. When a 
professor says, "TTiat will do for today," he immediately looks at Bow — for 
Edgar invariably rolls up to give teacher an apple or shyly ask a question. Louis 
delivers Bow's mail in Spitzie's room, for our embryo professor of Romance 
Languages is as much a fixture there as the familiar and disordered round table. 
Thanks to the appreciation he receives from the powers that be, he will return next 
year — to be a sturdy monument to 1915 and a joy to the heart of his beloved 
preceptor.

WALTER CARROLL BRINTON "Keedle" 

A precious heritage from Westtown, Keedle appeared among us smilmg and revealing his gold band. The gold band, 
with the aid of six classmates and a tooth-brush, was eliminated early in the game, but the smile still has all the magnetism 

which has made Keedle one of the best-liked men in the class. 

As politician, Keedle has ever been the level-headed spokesman of the North 
Barclay coterie. His conscientious scruples against the destruction of the Fresh- 
man cake were our mystery and our admiration. The melancholy ease with which 
he garnered cricket laurels has placed Keedle on the pinnacle of fame. Who of 
us will not cherish the vision of Keedle's flat-footed delivery, and who of us so 
unfortunate as not to have heard the ghastly rattle of the stumps behind us and 
seen Keedle's kindly face before? 

Some of us may lament his phlegmatic indifference to politics, baseball and 
Phil, v., and some there are who have marveled that twenty-four hour toothache? 
have cast a pall over a brilliant young mind, but those of us who are privileged 
to know the Keedle of fireside oratory, musical club dances, and college spirit —

GALLOWAY CHESTON CAREY 



"Chetty" 



This scion of Southern aristocracy, along with John, claims 
to be a bred in the bone Haverfordian ; along with Gummere, 
he constitutes another excuse for our existence. He is tall, broad- 
shouldered and debonair, affecting a distinguished walk not unlike 
the walk of the Dodo — its chief advantage consists in getting its 
user over the ground with the least amount of effort. Chetty 
early showed that he was of the stuff of cavaliers and many are 
the fair hearts that have fallen prey to his melodious neck haber- 
dashery and that warm Southern drawl — which, when it burst 
into song, was absolutely captivating. 

Chetty is of the old school, generous to a fault and with a 
sense of personal honor and self-respect which he has in no way 
tarnished while at college. Who will ever forget Cheston wob- 
bling into class, minus socks, shave and soap, but with it all a 
serenity and calm unruffled by things mundane? Gentlemen 
fhould have valets. Chetty and the faculty are on easy terms. 
With the President he has had a long controversy as to the 
merits and demerits of the cigarette. Chetty was for the cigar- 
ette and has practised what he preached. The controversy ended 
in smoke. With his Uncle Allen Chetty quaffs a friendly cigar 
but has thus far failed to interest him in either auction bridge 
or poker. Chetty's great opportunity for winning the favors of 
his Aunt were lost when he failed to pay his respects to her at 
the Bryn Mawr deanery on Class Banquet night. We all much 
regret this — except Chetty. 

Chetty is quite a lion when aroused and we will not forget 
his captaincy of the Wogglebug football team and his playing 
in class soccer games.

"-BNDIH HISTIHE' PLAYED • M ./^ N Y ■ P/\RT s" 



when il comes to kidding, Coley can guarantee all 
degrees of misery from Job to Lazarus. TTie 
biblical simile ends at that. 

Having disposed of a very prominent part of 
Coley, we will now describe some much more im- 
portant parts. Coley is a whole-hearted, good- 
natured big boy who wouldn't harm a fly (espe- 
cially since he could make any self-respecting fly 
much more miserable by some such remark as — 
"Say, Cull, where was you dragged up? ') But 
the worst is that he can make himself quite agree- 
able. Coley has also one violent prejudice — 
against all Englishmen. He even went so far as 
to refuse to bat against them in the recent cricket 
trip to England. Yes, he's quite an athlete — he 
was on both the Varsity soccer and cricket teams. 

Coley's magnificent voice and handsome ptT- 
sonality won for him the position of Cheer Leader 
In Senior year, while his hard headed business 
methods ran the musical clubs with credit both 
to him and to the college. 

Now that we understand Coley, we see under 
all his actions a frankness and honesty which is a 
rarity in our sophisticated college life. His supera- 
bundance of energy has found its proper channels 
and we no longer wonder at the metamorphosis 
of the boy from Scranton to quite a "perfect gen- 
tleman" — from Haverford.

The first of an illustrious line of round-headed Crosmans 
who are to be seen daily slouching about the campus under the 
weight of their athletic and social honors. Eddie is also first 
cousin of — but there, recognition is sought by neither. 

The progress of years has left our Eddie's countenance 
undimmed by worldly cares. In the throes of recent events he 
showed himself to possess the same genial philosophy which in 
Freshman year brought him wealth as a "Barking Dog" agent, 
and the wrath of the Dean as an Epicurean over-cutter. Eddie's 
watchful waiting behind the stumps has resulted in disaster for 
more than one ambitious batsman, while his treatment of English 
bowling is said to have been disrespectful to a degree. 

As football manager, Eddie was the first to operate on an 
equal plane with the guardian of the A. A. funds. As student, 
the departure of Karl put a crimp in his understanding of Me- 
chanics; as a provider of banquet provender, we yield him the 
palm; and as a good fellow in general, Eddie is second to none.

LORING PICKERING CROSMAN 



"Sa 



Saco is a distinclly moral man — as Heaven goes. There are other moral men — as the world goes. Loring is like 
one of the great watersheds of Psychology, oi Ethics class. On one side of him are "the booze-fighters," the dancers, 
the card-players, the light and frivolous. On the other side are the Christians. Saco is in Maine. 

Entirely unencumbered with any debilitating or disturbing habits, with his principles already well-defined, and little 
of the "cussedness" of human frailty to deter him, Saco has taken part in a tremendous amount of activity at Haverford. 
His cold-headed business ability won him a place on the managerial staff of the "Haverfordian," his executive ability placed 

him in the controllmg councils of nearly every college activity. His 
histrionic talent made him a mainstay of the "Cap and Bells." His 
moral worth and his power as an executive put into his hands the 
destiny of the Y. M. C. A. 

The undeviating nature of his progress toward glory has been 
a "bone in the craw" to many poor sinners. He had l)een so out- 
rageously good that it didn't seem right. So we thought until he 
went to Atlantic City with the Glee Club. His brazen incursion 
into an unsuspecting lady's room, under the cloak of a pretended 
mistake, opened our eyes. We saw at last how he had succeeded 
in living amongst us. Mr. Hyde had shown up, and Dr. Jekyll's 
abstinence from wickedness had been explamed. He is now trying 
to win back his reputation. He has even ceased to brood over the 
awful hoax he played upon the college when he invited it to hear 
his friend Mr. Sunday, and then turned all the promised seats over 
to a bevy of other friends from Bryn Mawr. 

We all admire Saco m spite of our chaff, and admit without a 
quaver that he "means right."

EMMETT REID DUNN 



"Dixie," "Professional Southerner.' 



Our last Vice President is a very quiet and retiring sort of individual. But then the hardest thing to find is a 
diamond. He who climbs to the roomy eyrie where Dixie sits amidst the clouds of Whip's tobacco smoke will find he is 

amply repaid for the toil of the ascent. Dixie will talk about 
snakes if he is asked, but lie has other interests. With Felix, 
Whipple, and three or four more, he had "read more than any one 
else in the class" when he came to Haverford. He remembers some 
of his reading and can talk as a cultured Southerner should. 

With Morris, Oscar Wilde, and A. E. Housman, Dixie has 
left a record of his sojourn in metrical expression. Can the world 
forget his readiness to go "Hell's whole hot length away" for a 
pair of "gray eyes" in Sophomore year? And what obscure mortal 
has not thrilled to the "Ballade of One Way" — that of a "maid 
with a man"? Emmett's middle name is Reid. With the pro- 
fessor of that name he has managed to keep the mathematical course 
in a fair state of efficiency. Under the disguise of a "teaching 
fellow," Dixie will continue to apply his efforts in this direction 
after we, as a class, have departed. 

The Scientific Society owes much to Dixie's acquaintance with 
the tempter of Eve. The snake has imparted some of its wisdom 
concerning things biological to the Southerner, and every week from 
his seat in the dining-room he arises to announce that the society is 
still in existence and holding its meetings. 

Dixie plays tennis. It is not as an athlete, however, but as an 
educated gentleman that we leave him at Haverford to represent 
our class.

PAUL HEWLETT EGOLF 

If the career of any one of us has resembled that 
it has been that of the "Terrible Dane." Whether he 




"Jarl," "Egg" 
of a comet in its brilliant and regardless course through (he skies, 
is a troubadour or a warrior he has never openly acknowledged. 
This much we know — he might have been a troubador if he 
had not wished to be a warrior and to devote his energy to the 
harassing of Dixie and to the hurling of invective. Tliat he did 
not remain with us long enough to afford the spectacle of a 
diploma disdainfully snatched from the gentle hand of Isaac is 
a disappointment. He would have taken his deserts as a "Jarl" 
should. 

The caustic comment of his wit and the prolific product of 
his pencil enriched Haverford's only satirical magazine. With 
Turner he tried by means of the "Scarlet" to eliminate the 
enforced attendance at Thursday meeting, so obnoxious to a free 
soul. Unfortunately the effort failed and the engine of reform 
was turned over to lower classmen for the worthier purpose of 
reforming the habits of Freshmen. His one great blow for 
religious freedom having been in vain, and the restrictions of 
the class room galling this proud spirit even more than meeting, 
the Jarl looked abroad with eagle eyes ujxin the world. Mid- 
way in Senior year he stood before Merion. A motorcycle wa^ 
at his feet. His eyes shone in demoniac glee through the glazed 
windows of his goggles. With unconscious ease he twiddled 
the cap of his gasoline tank, and gazed long at the sky-line over 
against Barclay. With slow and firm gravity he drew out hi« 
handkerchief — and put it back. He drew on his gloves. 
Sweeping the assembled throng of three with a disdainful glance, 
he put one foot on the pedal and spurned the ground with th^ 
other. Tlie machine moved, wobbled and stood still. A curse 
left the Jarl's curline lips. Taking a small instrument from his 
pocket he knelt to his fellow demon of the road. In three 
minutes he remounted. The cycle coughed. Four fingers and 
a thumb were in close proximity to a distinguished nose — and 
the Jarl had gone. The throng of three laughed, shook their 
heads and went to dinner.

Cy 



IS so 
richer 



cryingly good that a simile to express him must needs be taken from the Bible — or the "Survey." The 
for the present, and then we are led irresistibly to compare him with David. David filled his little sling 

and went against the Philistine giant. Cyrus "slings" his fill 
and goes against Penrose, John Barleycorn, and other enemies 
of the chosen of society. His political agitations during the 
Fall elections, his denunciations of "booze" campaigns about 
Montgomery County, with Champlin, McCracken, and occa- 
sionally President Sharpless "also present," during the Winter, 
and his careful tending of anaemic nasturtiums on his window- 
sill in the early Spring, round out the major activities of the 
Falconer. His constant and commendable piloting of the 
Civics Club amidst the deep waters of Socialism, Woman 
Suffrage, Social Work, et al., has been more his very existence 
than an activity. He has been kind enough to share some of 
his vigorous and expurgated English with newly arrived Ital- 
ians in the fens of Ardmore, and has been closely connected 
with every movement for the uplift of Haverford or of the 
world since he entered. 

Judging from the fumigant concerns of Cyrus, we should 
believe his intentions to be world-wide reform. But the 
gentle life of a country patriarch is the dominant desire of 
our sturdy giant-killer. He will be a farmer — but polygamy 
among the poultry may need to be adjusted — no, wiped out ! 
Compromise is a term of the devil's. Cyrus will make a 
good farmer. He has the physical stamina required for the 
job, as well as the moral strength to be a patriarch. To see 
the energy and fire with which he plays soccer with five braces 
on one poor damaged knee, is to realize how subordinate and 
obedient the body may be made. Cyrus is capable of ruling 
himself, as well as of ruling the world. For that reason do 
we respect him, and willingly dub him "Cyrus the Great."

honor of the G. O. P. in Rayner's History Symposium. 

He has abandoned his former carefree life with the 
coming of Senior year and, bowed down with the respon- 
sibilities of the Baseball Association and the track manager- 
ship, we only catch fleeting glimpses of a hard-working Ed. 
But, be it the serious or gay Mayor, we are always glad to 
have him with us as a friend. And in conclusion we must 
sadly prophesy for his future occupation that of a political 
leader back in his native swamp.

"Long Jawn" — Mayor, Board of Trade, Local Option League, Constabulary, and future Pastor of dear old Bur- 
lington-on-Delaware — smiled down on us from his dizzy height on a September afternoon in 1911 and has continued to 

,,- — -„.^^ smile with the single intent of making these four college years 

as bright as they are generally reputed to be. To the reader of 
•^^^^^ij^j'Sjl destinies Jack is an open book. The zeal with which he is seen 

to divest himself of his garments in favor of soccer garb while 
sprinting from Phil. V. to Lloyd Hall; and the awful solemnity 
with which he shattered the tradition of years by lamenting his 
neglect to bring Collier's to Meeting — these make us tremble for 
( ^^^^^^^^Kvl Burlington's evil doers. 

Yet some of us who remember the sad condition of Jack 
on a certain morning of Freshman year may surmise that the 
man of iron has his human side. Jack's record of seventeen 
minutes from Haverford to Burlington on Friday afternoons, his 
partiality for "Brook's Bros. Best," his abomination of phi- 
losophy and the sciences, and above all his eye for the winsome 
maid, convince us that few spots in Burlington may attain more 
historic prominence than the vine-clad manse where the "Watch-

George is our sole exponent of red hair and holiness. He has high ideals and lives up to them and hop)es to clear 
six feet this Spring. Many of us have seen him as he take; that little preliminary hop and slides over the handkerchief, 

arms and legs a-flying. But get up some April morning at about 
4 A. M. and go with Javi'ge to hear the birdies sing. The cold 
grey dawn is no mythological entity to Hallett. He hears "the 
owl scream and the crickets cry" and the sleepy little sparrows 
waking up in the bushes. "Oh. Hew," says he, "there's a 
chippy!" Honi soit, etc. Yet he has been known to smile at 
jokes which were dubious to say the least and at Tang's first 
party he quite gave way. There is a certain story about Theis, 
Hallett, and the Rathskeller which is, alas, no more. But George 
says he only ate the pretzels. 

Tliis year George has been running a chicken farm in Ard- 
more. And many an otherwise staid person has thereby met 
his downfall — Whipple's sad lapse, Votaw's wild and pathetic 
attempts, and the discovery of Dixie's long-lost cousin, are all 
to be laid at Hallett's door. 

If only George would go in for Law instead of Math., 
we should expect his head to furnish one of the "Beacon Lights

"His mind is full of indices and surds.

HAROLD WILLIAM HELVESTON 



"Hell" 



Here we have the man from Jenkintown — the only original "now you see it and now you don't." Here today and 
gone tomorrow. He emerges from his primeval wilderness, gets seven other devils, one of whom White is which, and 
,*"--' retires into the darkness. Hell used to dream of South America and the little 

senoritas. He even went so far as to get a letter of introduction to the Bishop 
of Brazil. But that was before he started selling things to the unsuspecting 
aborigines at Haver ford. Now he is firmly convinced that the "one every 
second" proverb is as true as ever — and keeps his clock wound up. Argentina 
is not even a dream now. 

Hell is a man with a past — he and Felix and Willow Grove. But Felix 
is "off that stuff" and our lips are sealed. Also his marital relations are com- 
plex and difficult to unravel — (I) Wife and residence in Jenkintown. (2) 
The breakmg-away period, bachelor quarters in South Barclay. (3) Liaison 
'._^ with a young blond, nee McKmstry. (4) Married to a pious spouse, Elsie 
Crosman. 

Hell is another of the "group," as Doc Watson would say, who proved 
that man is not prone to fly upward like the sparks. He and Volaw foileci 
each other to their hearts' content at C. E. — while others — "but that is another 
story." 

But he is really a horticulturist. The prevalent ditty about a tulip makes 
him blush and he is thoroughly able to explain even the unnoticed parts of the 
Lotos. The unfailing good humor with which he drinks all the hot water is 
only one of his many likeable traits. Always ready to meet smile with smile, 
good humor with good humor. Hell (proper) will as soon freeze over as 
Helveston.

TTie Fountain of Youth has been found. Would you see its 
effects? Gaze upon the peaches-and-cream complexion that graces 
"Hen." Would you know its location? Enter the second door 
on the left of third floor South. Thither Paul wends his way, 
jug in hand, every fourteen minutes of the day. "A stein on the 
table" is as necessary to his studies as a toolbox to a Ford. When 
the marks come out we wish that n>c" had imbibed more of that 
same Pierian spring. "P. C." didn't lose his Corp. till Rogers 
took a swim in the tank. What wonder? 

The Cap and Bells is his long suit. Behind the footlights he 
shows the same self-possession that Turner displays in answering 
a question he knows nothing about. Nor is he satisfied to be our 
collegiate John Drew — as assistant manager and then manager he 
guided that club with a firm hand and kept Spitzy in (he way he 
should go. 

Hen is going to be a lawyer and, if Govt. III. is any criterion, 
he will be more than a mere lawyer. Some day, gentle reader, 
if you stray from the straight and narrow, he will glare at you 
from his lofty desk and snap, "What's the charge, officer?" If 
you want to know anything about Blackstone, ask Doc Bolles — and 
he'll ask Hendricks. 

Paul is one of those rather frequent animals known as an 
"omnivorous reader." Excepting tracts on "TTie History of 
Quakerism," the library cannot compare with his room. "All the 
latest magazines" are arranged in orderly rows. If you find a 
"Red Book " under the cushion of his chair, you mustn't take 
that — he hasn't finished it ; but as for those on his table it is — 
"Sure! Help yourself and don't bother to bring em back!" 
Beyond a doubt Paul is to be numbered among our public bene-

THOMAS HOOPES. JR. 



"Tom," "Hooper' 



Tom came into our midst as Chest Wester's representative to succeed Wm. Yarnall, the previous pride of the 
town. Tom's fondness for his native town may be deduced from the way in which he daily buries himself behind a copy 

of the "Hometown Bugle. " 

There is a saying that some choose roommates, some refuse room- 
mates and some have roommates thrust upon them. Tom was blessed 
with Jerry Hill. The furniture of the room consisted of ( I ) a three- 
legged couch, (2) a chair, (3) a table — and has since been known 
as "Jerry's Hell" from various volcanic eruptions followed by a crash 
of glass, a long form sliding gracefully out of the window and loping 
off to parts unknown. The fact that his "milk of human kindness" 
did not sour is testimony to Tom's kindly disposition. 

He was one of the small class who were much interested in 
Kelly's astronomy in Sophomore year (for details, see Jim or Dr. Wil- 
son). His favorite sports are golf and fan-tan — and the perusal of an 
exciting tale entitled "Wrapped in a Turkish Rug." He has shown a 
firm determination through Senior year to resist temptation in all forms 
and was most unjustly entangled with the office just before Easter, but 
convicted under a rtom de plume (see "Evening Bulletin"). Although 
he is suspected of being on the calling list of the W. C. Normal School, 
sleuths have brought back no other reports than languishing glances cast 
from dormitory windows towards the driver of "the car." 

However, Tom is a conscientious worker and a dependable one — 
attacking theses at times with all the vigor he bestows on a "Baby 
Dimple." And if in the future you should observe someone attached 
to an old blue-and-coffee colored necktie you may know that it is Tom 
— or the Janitor.

'Sook," "Hoob" 



Our one public character — he has never been known to shun the limelight and the blaze of glory will find him on hand 
with a fire-extinguisher. One of the proudest days of his life was when he received the resolution of thanks from Engineer- 

mg III. "For hurtmg, harming and wilfully maltreating one 
lathe, one plane, and one circular saw." He has been heard 
to state that the one thing which marred his pleasure on that memor- 
able occasion was being compelled to assist Ike in explaining to every 
fireman in Ardmore and Bryn Mawr the wherefore of "Why in 
Hell ain't there no fire plugs?" But he had his reward — fame was 
thrust upon him by all. Even the sainted Longstreth made him the 
subject of an epigram. He was present at the abortive gvm fire and 
led the forlorn hope into the cellar of Barclay "to find where the 
smoke was coming from." The mishap at the fire near Haverford 
School, where he made connections with a large amount of elec- 
tricity by trying to use the phone, is notorious. The Mandolin Club 
would have lost its peerless leader there, had it not been for Knowl- 
ton, the best pickled Boy Scout in America. 

Sook has not hid his light under a bushel. He went to Cooper- 
town in the wake of the Bailies and Holly Parker. His fond 
and paternal management of Preston has been much admired. It is 
rumored that at least two happy couples owe their happiness to him. 
Hoob is a conscientious lamb — e. g., the football game when he 
pursued the referee shouting "I did it, I fouled him!" It has been 
said that he is so apologetic that he may be conceived at the Pearly 
Gates saying to Pete, "Sorry, old man, didn't mean to disturb you 
— I'll try the other place." If you want to see him rave, sav

Whirr! Whiz! Zip! What was that which flashed by at such terrific speed? TTiat, my son, was the Count. Where 
is he going in such a fearful hurry? He is going to the bathroom to get a drink of water. Is it because he has not tasted 

water in a long while, or because he craves water inordinately? 
No, my son, he drinks water occasionally as do other mortals. Why, 
then, does he rush? My son, nobody knows. Always he hurries, 
always he runs, never is he still. Some day he may get there. 

He holds the rapid fire cut record. He will cut with equal glee 
to go to the movies. Grand Opera or the Gayety, or even to sit in a 
little game at 1 A. M. While he consistently tips Charlie (of the 
old "Rat") Vs, he practises economy by walkmg from Overbrook at 
least once a week. A connoisseur of Havana perfectos, poultry and 
ragtime, he is never seen without a copy of Ellen Key's third book in 
his hip pocket — unless the pocket is otherwise occupied. We all know 
him for his harmonious tenor, and we admire his faithful doglike 
worship of Dr. Kelsey — ah, there indeed is idolatry! But my good- 
ness! you should see him disguised as an elderly female! He never 
said so himself, but we are morally certain that the Cap and Bells 
would have fallen flat without him in more than one case. 

Due perhaps to a sense of future responsibility or, sh! because of 
that little picture in the silver frame, he threw on the brakes Senior 
year and — that's all right, calm yourself, we're not going to say he 
studied or anything foolish like that — undertook the stupendous job 
of engineering this Book through a hard times year. And well he did 
his work. Guided by a firm conviction of the ultimate triumph of 
Germany in the war, he garnered ads by the bushel, and this book 
which you hold in your hands is mute testimony to the Count's ability 
to accomplish anything he sets out to do.

EDWARD MAGARGF. LEVIS 



"Levi," "Megargee' 



In Freshman year Levi was like the proverbial "x" about which he was so fond of studying — in fact he has such a 
liking for Math in general and Prof. Reid in particular that he has devoted much of his time to this science. When all 
other recreations failed, he was one of two who could rouse Jrrry from a lethargy to the state of a raging inferno. This 
sport was very popular. He was present at the performance of "The Miracle" by a neighboring Senior in that year. 

He possesses a very flexible face which he uses to advantage in expressing his moods. One favorite view afforded 
when arising from sleep has led to his cognomen of "the Wrath of Jahveh." He holds the class record as the possessor 

of the sloppiest room in college — one of the kind through which 
you must sap, mine and excavate to find your way. He was once 
interned in the Infirmary where he sought to amuse himself by 
throwing his crutches through the glass door! Watch Levis and 
Miss Hartwig when they meet ! He still grieves over a great 
loss sustained on Chestnut Street during Sophomore year. Bowie 
knows something of this, we are sure. He is a voracious devourer 
of the best literature, which he divides into three classes — (1) 
Current Modern Stuff — "Snappy Stories," "Blue Book," "Ginger 
Jar," etc., (2) Middle English Mu=hy Stuff — Donne, Suckling, 
Lovelace, etc., (3) Great French Masters — Musset, Balzac, and 
De Maupassant. He also reads the agony column in the 
"Bulletin" which leads us to infer that he has been blighted in 
love. His vivid coloring on hear:ng certain initials would confirm 
this, although he is generally considered an ideal bachelor. His 
great exertions in scholastic duties have driven him to dope — and 
his daily needs now call for "three shots of Bromo." The high 
grades which he pulls with little exertion can only be the results 
of the same brilliant mind which prenared that voluminous Ec. 
report on his future trade — "Paper — Wall, Cigarette, News and 
Otherwise."

and sickening thud. But, with all Mac's debating powers, he has never been 
able to brmg himself to take any side out of contrariness and the joy of the 
game. It is not a game with him, it is deadly earnest. Who but Mac would 
go to the Gayety, the resort of all sufferers from Wellschmerz, and on his 
return retail all the horrible details to those assembled in Y. M. C. A. 
Save for Lonng's little josh at the Junior Banquet, Mac is our only Benedict. 
He is also connected with Loring by the link of the Glee Club. His songs 
have delighted Preston, Manayunk and the Merion C. C. and uncorked the

Mac is pure but not unsophisticated. "What a young man ought to

Judge and Harper's Weekly? Not for nothing has Mac read the only book 
on traps in the college library, namely, •'Traps for the Young," by Anthony

But, all joking aside, we feel that Mac will steer clear of traps himself

"Ma 



The lost sheep who reads in Meeting realizes full well that "Long Jawn" Gummere is shaping his steps to l>e a follower 
of the Lord, but perhaps it is not generally known that his fellow sufferer in Hebrew A. is likewise an embryo divine. 
This is because Mac is a very quiet fellow, and yet if every man could find as good company v\ithin his skin the world would 

set no premium upon hermits. 

Nevertheless it is not always so. Freshman 
Year Mac roomed in South. So did "Bo" How- 
son, and the disgraceful orgies at Preston, Cooper- 
town, etc., offer explanation for the transient spells 
of Fenianism incarnate which still sweep occasion- 
ally over Marion and the Union. When Mac 
relaxes, this temperament is better revealed. There 
are strident shrieks for Cy, together they hie them 
to the gym and forthwith engage in furious pugi- 
listic contests. Both are bantams, but what of 
that? "Little, but Oh, My!" said somebody of 
Napoleon. Moreover, who in ' I 5 will ever forget 
the role Mac played in our Junior Cricket and 
Senior Soccer games. 

TTiere is a pretty creek called the Wissa- 
hickon, and there is a canoe on it of wtiich Mac 
is part owner, and that he is the proud possessor of 
a tenor voice all Merion can attest, and on soft 
May evenings the Hebrew Grammar and the 
Platonic Dialogues mourn undisturbed seclusion 
and — but why continue? "On such a night" do 
all roads lead to roam. Besides Mac keeps it more 
or less secret. 

Indeed in our class there is no man held in 
greater esteem; more uniformly resf>ected. Con- 
scientious as El wood recording cuts; thorough as the Count on an amateur Vice Commission; steadfast as Megarge in 
Freshman Math; refined as Tobe when dining with the President. — all these attributes and many more belong to Mac. A 
true scholar and a gentleman.

or "Seven No-Trumps." This is only a bare idea. Shall we speak of his Senior mustache, the despair of Shaffer, or of 

the time when Dr. Pratt nearly had him arrested for stealing the 
Bug. Lab. Library, or of his guinea pigs which initiated many of us 
into the mysteries of life and death? Achilles, Ethel, Hector, and 
Valeska — those grand old names are but memories now, having

mere trifles. Moore loves the cows and chickens. The Plymouth

But if the guinea pigs were chiefly noted for inaction, the bugs

On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Felix is a student. On Saturday he is a literateur. On 

any afternoon of these days he holds himself ready to prove that he is no "muff" at athletics. On Sunday he "swanks" 

up a hit and conducts \. M. C. A. Then on Monday he begins and does it all over again. So he manages to do many 

thmgs m one way — the way o 




man who, know- 
ing what he wants, goes and gets it. In this way 
he has held a Corporation scholarship, and won 
scholastic prizes by work of the five-day period; 
has won literary prizes and bedecked the "Haver- 
fordian" through Saturday's labor; and by the toil 
of his afternoons has won a place on every class 
team. He has "swanked" himself in the class 
presidency and a few other important offices 
through the ability which on Sunday enables him 
to ease the Y. M. C. A. through the wide seas of 
the spirit. So much for the solid basis of the man 
with the "inimitable" style. 

Felix had a love affair last February. A 
tramp steamer sailed up the Delaware when he was 
riding back and forth on the Camden ferry, to 
be near the water. He raved and languished 
alternately until he found a way of easing his mind 
by sailing chips in Darby Creek, and quoting W. 
W. Jacobs. 

For one who knows him, Felix furnishes 
an inexhaustible and delightful subject 
on which to write. But we will suspend the dis- 
cussion till he IS writen up in the "Bookman" or 
elsewhere. He is starting on a promising career, 
and so far has only received one reiection slip — 
and that was from the "Atlantic Monthly," so

The misapplication of Kipling's slogan, "East is East and West is West" is one of Tobe's grievances when in a

its fallacy. East and West met a beautiful time in the quondam di-

The day drop[>ed from the calendar at 180" W. Longitude 
should have been preserved and used for \ o's birthday. Oriental 
fantasy and Occidental levity lap gently together in the speech of 
Tobe — speech as liquid and beautiful as the Pacific. Like the 
Pacific, too, Tobe's speech is bitter. It is bitter with the salt of 
human wisdom. It is bitter to him- who would listen and not go. 
To start a "morning watch," to aid the Belgians, to carry the mes- 
sage of Christ to foreign lands, to have a "cup" and pipe and 
L — s, — are some of the termini of Yo's finished harangues. To 
Yo's enthusiasm we owe heightened appreciation of the world and 
the little gods that sit above. To Yo's despondencies — we are not

To those who think of our "Japanese school-boy" in his

observant class has denied to our cosmopolitan member the freedom 
from discovery he sought for his prophetic soul. A freedom sought 
with perhaps a hint of Oriental impassiveness. Tobe has come

That neither football nor literature are held in high esteem at Westtown merely goes to show that for all men 
handicaps are not obstacles. It was no common progress started that first September day when Gene blushingly asked 
"Mr." Murray if he might play football, running eight weeks later to a triumphant close in the much prized football 
cup. And though neither Gene nor the Cup were again promment in this sport the coincidence was nothing more than 
natural. A bad knee accounted for the former. We had said bad need also explained the cup's demise were it not 
the onus of biographers to be assumed veracious. The other field of endeavor has been more uniformly conquered. 
Glance through the four last volumes of the Haverfordian, — for all of ihem Gene has been a literary arbiter — and mark the 

evolution from the very "tenuous" verse of Fresh- 
man year to the amorous throbs of today's accom- 
plished biblio[>hile. 

He roomed with Felix then. Now they are

song waf one in which flowed all the aspirations of the Revolution; 
we agreed with I ang that it was most appropriate for driving out 
the Manchus. It was Dr. Hancock, however, who discovered that 
1 ang's real purple patch lay in his golden tongue; we will remember 
with pride his eloquent oration in the annual Oratorical Contest. In

so he heroically picked out third floor. North, and resigned himself

In the gym one afternoon in Sophomore year, Kemp, working on the bar, repeatedly tried the "giant" and failed. 
He did not clench his lists, grit his teeth and "register determination" as he should according to all dramatic rules. He 

laughed — "I am going to get that some day." This was typical of 
Kemp in the success that crowned his efforts and the easy, good-humored, 
but none the less efficient, method with which he approached his goal. 
This great little man of massive shoulders and iron will has moved with 
unflinching purpose throughout his college year, winning a pre-eminent 
place as an athlete, scholar, executive, man of letters — and as a gentleman. 

Kemp joined our class during Sophomore year and roomed with the 
occasional Scary. He made the Glee Club, the HaverforJian, and the 
gym team. By Senior year he was the captain of the gym team and 
the Glee Club leader; but his most valuable work was as a link between 
the alumni and the college, through the medium of his editorship of the 
Alumni Bulletin. Some men can be described by their characteristics 
but Kemp cannot be described without mentioning his activities for he 
is above all a man of action. Kemp for a time thought of being a jour- 
nalist, but has rather chosen a medical career, for which his thorough 
self-control and sound judgment decidedly fit him. 

We have only one regret concerning Kemp and that is that we did 
not know him better. But those of us who have gotten under the some- 
what austere shell of this well-bred little superman have found a generous 
heart and a warm friend.

HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



CHARLES BRINKLEY TURNER 



'Brink' 



Brinlcley is like a butterfly. He has emerged from his chrysalis under the genial sun of Haverford days. Even 
in his chrysalis he had a sort of glittering individuality. In the first years an atmosphere of notebooks full of sketches, 
amorous epithets, and pungent observations, with an occasional note (if the content were humorous enough) enveloped 
him in the class room. Outside of class he hid behind a huge calabash, and from clouds of smoke and "comical stuff" 
frankly didn't "give a damn." But he would sing "Ho Raj O'Ram" at class festivals whenever asked. Junior year, 
the smoke and "stuff " began to clear away, and Senior year, as one by one we dropped in to see the sketches which 

were to adorn our "Record," we found we were glad to have 

known him. 



The only thing in Brink that has not changed is his satire. 
In Senior year this stram of his nature, mingled with the instinct 
for publicity that close association with the newspaper world 
has fostered, burst into full flower in the "Scarlet." He founded 
this storehouse of iconoclastic wit in partnership with the re- 
doubtable "Jarl," and in a minute the whole college was agog 
with curiosity. Many a time-honored institution rocked for a 
moment on its base, and then, winking one eye — if such a thing 
be possible, sunk back agjun into an undisturbed slumber. (For 
instance — Thursday Meeting.) 

In March, Felix, noticing the charming air of consecration 
which had gradually enveloped the pyerson of our laughing phi- 
losopher, urged him to relieve his system by an address to the 
Y. M. C. A. Brink assented like a flash. The "Round- 
heads" say he was kidding. The "Cavaliers" maintain he was 
not. Brink is the only one who might enlighten the curious, 
and he doesn't know. If all the best things have humor, as the 
best people do (according to Rufus), his eulogy of Spring and 
of the gradually unfolding grass-buds was of the best. 

But do not think Turner is all laugh or smile. He can 
really be very serious, and with all the qualities that make a 
good friend or a well-balanced man he is thoroughly conversant.

WALTER ELWOOD VAIL 



"El," "Elwood" 



The rapt gravity of Socrates, the unalterable wisdom of Aristotle, the marvelous sanctity of Simon Stylites, the 

doubting quest for truth of Descartes, — all seem enhanced and combined when we ponder the individuality of President 

Vail. Our puny pens can no more limn his virtues than Electra Silicon can brighten the stars. He is. Little more 
can be said. 

He came among us Sophomore year and began by conquermg 
space in the broad jump. Junior year he came to our level and 
played Wogglebug. Such puerile pursuits soon irked his mind. 
In practice one day he sacrificed a leg so that without reproach 
he might abandon mere muscular effort and devote his time to the 
contemplation of the Good. This occupation was fruitful. Chem- 
istry prizes, and Corporation scholarships were given him by the 
faculty in token of his merit. We observed his ability and brought 
him from amongst the stars to sit in the councils of the Y. M. C. 
A., to edit its Handbook, and to apply his judgment in other ways. 
In our class meetings Senior year, the confusion of a French Revo- 
lution was superseded by the solemnity of a Roman Forum when 
he entered the Presidential chair. At the table he made men of 
a group of thoughtless boys. In the Chem. Lab. he made problems 
seem as child's play and solutions to be open books — to him. 

But Elwood IS not all wisdom, judgment and gravity. He 
is a large part appreciation. One of his friends found him one day 
raving about "harsh skies" and "soft water" at the Art Exhibit 
amid the sympathetic suspirations of a luminous female. And who 
that has lived in .Vlerion does not know all about the fact that "all 
your hair is tangled gold upon your I-i-r-ish br-how" ? There is a 
story that one summer in a small county to the west, Elwood nearly 
lost his life by drowning, and all because he insisted on singing 
"John Anderson, My Jo, John" while in the act of swimming 
under water.

DONALD BEAUCHAMP VAN HOLLEN 



"Goph," "Don" 



Avalokitesvara of the Buddhistic pan'.heon is depicted with forty hands each of which is a manifestation of her 
varied powers. Only such a picture would do justice to this versatile gentleman. i he only difference is that Avalo- 
kitesvara IS always seated upon a lotus blnom, whereas Don is forever on the go. Goph escaped from the Quaker Reform 
School and entered our class with a ru=h, armed with a si.\-shooter, a Mexican gambling outfit, a box of cigarettes and 
Roberts' Rules of Order. He led our class through those stormy days of our inception; but having honorably filled the 

breach, like Garibaldi, he refused all honors and retired to a period 
of living. He turned litterateur, journalist, athlete and showed such 
signs of executive ability that he was soon loaded with responsi- 
bility. But the best of it was that Goph never allowed his cares 
to make an old man of him. Just to show that he was still young, 
he would flunk an exam or two (Greek preferably) and go off to 
Chinatown for a spree. 

In Senior year, Goph ran the soccer team, the Student Coun- 
cil, the A. A., the tennis campaign and Spalding's Agency, so that 
to his other accomplishments we add that of a Financier. But on 
the whole his best work was as editor of the A'eU's, which was 
practically reborn in his regime. Goph is undoubtedly a star. 
But like those sidereal bodies, he moved alone, unconsciously avoid- 
ing contact with equal bodies, but gathering about him a few 
devoted planets. 

But the best of Don's social conquests were reserved for fields 
abroad. To the gentler sex he was most generous of himself. 
How he ever kept his cases in Maryland, Philadelphia and Bryn 
Mawr all going at once and all separate, beats even the Kaiser in 
adroitness. But you must remember that Don is unusually clear 
headed, except when he has dined in New \ ork and endeavors 
to walk out to college in the wee small hours. There is a great 
future in store for Don; he will succeed because he has the brains, 
the will and above all because he is human.

ERNEST NICHOLSON VOTAW 



"Jonah" 



Jonah was cast up on our shores by Westtown. His experiences Biblical 
and otherwise should have taught him to avoid the appearance of water, but all 
signs fail in dry time and Jonah abode by the pond for four years. Like so many 
of Westtown's best and brightest, his course in these "low grounds of sorrow" 
has been downward. The primrose path has seldom been trod by larger feet. 
Freshman year, Hewlett's epicene romance attracted his untutored eye. Sopho- 
more year is a blank. Coincident with his developing taste for riding he fared 
further afield and acquired a knowing smile when one spoke of Balzac. In 
Senior year came Y. M. C. A. and C. E. — that invention of the feminine 
population of Ardmore. Next the dancing around bug got in its foul work 
and Votaw got the heel and toe disease and distracted his mind at tango teas. 

We draw a veil over this sad phase of our hero's character and turn with 
delight to his appreciative attitude in Phil. V., "the row before the last." We 
have all seen his exhibition of bareback riding, as Mme. Votaw, the famous 
equestrienne. The reports of his having applied to "Jine the Cavalry" are 
utterly false. Jonah is a Friend and shows no desire to step on any one's neck. 
But murder will out and Wogglebug football showed up an unexpected side 
of his nature. At table he assists in denouncing certain "spineless inverte- 
brates" who shall be nameless. We will conclude with a few moments' silent 
prayer to the effect that the Lord wnll continue to deliver Jonah.

Those excellent institutions commonly called "firm and lasting friendships" are as numerous in our class as Pharo's 
puns or Carey s reformmg. But however firm the others may be. that of Sam and Hendricks holds all records for last- 
ing—roommates for four years. There will doubtless Imger long in South the echoes of the plaintive "Oh I Sam'" and 
Say. Paul! This is. as Paul would say, prima f acie evidence of the even temper and comity of both joint tenants.

Like Tom. the other delegate from West Chester. Sam is one 
of our several "Class Babies." His extreme youth made him an 
ideal Freshman — meek, unassuming and ever ready to sit in rapt 
attention at the feet of those mighty embodiments of cynical ma- 
turity — Bliss and Minot. Like his Pythias he laid hold of the 
helm of the Cap and Bells where his characteristic geniality and 
readiness to work made him one to be relied on. 

A political reform wave carried him into the position of tennis 
manager and "Lew" turned pale when Sam went on the warpath. 
In his consulship, too. the congested tennis situation at Haverford 
took on a brighter aspect and as we go to press it appears that we 
are to be blessed with backstops that will stop and even with more 
courts ! Sam's bete noir is examinations. According to Hen- 
dricks, he will recite whole pages of the text-book as he starts for 
an exam but, as soon as the detested red book is handed to him. 
everything evaporates and he begins to wonder when the re-examina- 
tion schedule will be posted. Be this as it may. not even the 
faculty would "judge a scholar's worth" solely by his marks. His 

kindliness has won our affection, his good breeding our respect 

why ask more?

YVO ORESTES WALN 



"Walloon' 



One wonders how the three components of the above ever got 
connected. The Walloon says that after much research he has dis- 
covered the origin of "YVO." It was the title of an English monk 
in the seventh century. His namesake is following in his footsteps in 
more ways than one. North House is a case in point. There are 
hints of ulterior motive but no! — we repel the base insmuation. Still 
from North House to Preston is a long way to travel and he must 
have had some one to show him the road. E. Lawton has tales to 
tell of Wain as the protagonist in various encounters with the fair 
sex, and we know from personal experience that he is the most 
ticklish of men. 

The choice between astronomy and itinerant preaching is in- 
deed a most difficult one. Not unattractive, either of them — there 
are the joys of tramping through the country, the joy of finding 
what lies round the next bend of the road. But Yvo will probably 
handle the little end of a big telescope and get the thrill that comes 
to every 

"Watcher of the skies. 
When seme new planet swims into his ken."

WILLIAM DAMPIER WEBSTER 



"Webby" 



One of the trio of Graces who emerged from Guilford to brighten the 
corners of Founders and the Chem. Lab. As for which Grace Webby is, as 
Cy used to remark in Latin I — "Ncscio." However that may be, Bowie has 
been a Nympholept since the day when Webby first displayed his peg top 
Irou and his doliar-and-a-half ($1.30) cap. It took Web some time to 
get acclimated. "I don't know what to make out of thisyer place," was the 
burden of his song. But Web has found himself, us and Haverford, not to 
mention Phiiiy, Woodbury, and the Gayety. The night when the gym nearly 
burned down, he put on his famous cap, unrolled the chain and rope fire escape, 
threw it out the window and crawled alter it. Thus he made good his escap)e 
from the burning buiidmg. 

Web can tell a lot about sleeping accommodations in Broad Street Sta- 
tion. He is one of the main supporters of Dr. Pratt and is very fond of telling 
a bad egg. He has also been in the waste places of the earth and tells wild 
tales of Paint Creek and Biuefields, W. Va. He is one of the few people 
who ever disturbed Weikel's composure. He did this mighty deed by in- 
quiring with an innocent expression, "Do you go in town much?" And that 
was hitting Weikel where he lives. We like to think of Web winning glory 
on our Wogglebug team and we are sure he will hit the line hard in after life.

MALCOLM HUSTED WEIKEL 



"Mac," "Weik" 



Weikel is an acquaintance of all of us; many of us feel that we know him; but those who know him best wonder 
if they know him well. Certain it is that he baffled analysis for two years. For that period he seemed as strictly 
unimpeachable as Hallett ; his saintliness made Anthony Comstock resemble Gates at his swiftest. He blushed at the 
mention of a cigarette and grew faint at the dread word "beer." But even in those distant days he enjoyed the milder 
diversions of the rest of us — he was the presiding deity of South's innumerable "500" games and Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Bowman. In athletics, too, he has made a place for himself — he has played on every class team; made the 
Varsity track team in Junior year and twice came out at the top of the heap in the doubles tournaments. 

In the last two years particularly has Mac developed his personality. Not only has an occasional cigarette profaned 
his lips but this blase "cotillion leader" once was seen smoking a clay pipe! All the hideous aspects of the famous 
"Episode of the Westtown Swimming Pool" must remain shrouded in mystery. One rule he sets for himself above all 
others — "if you don't know the answer to a question, blufl it out anyhow" — which he does with an expression of per- 
fect innocence. Wherefore the praenomen of "Baron." But lately his professional cynicism has worn away and his 
admiration for U. P. has waned — notably in the football season of 1914. Enthralled by his effervescent humor, his little 

Dutch roommate and familiar spirit 
forgot his books and dropped with 
loud wails to fourth place. He uncov- 
ered a vein of music and the Ca;> and 
Bells opened its arms to him. Mac 
has carefully hid his light and sat on 
the bushel but he has not been able to 
blind us to his talents. We who 
know — as Theis once put it — "how 
arbitrary marks are" — know also that 
there is a measure of success awaiting 
him even greater than that which he 
has attained among us.

'Whip" 



PAUL KIMBALL WHIPPLE 

On shining lights in other classes Spitzy has placed reliance, but Whip is the one and only to whom he avows 
dependency. "It would be, "Dunn, traduisez!'" says Dixie, recalling distant French I days, "but always, 'Monsieur 
Whipple, est-ce que vous liriez, peut-etre?' " Even L. G., the sine qua non of the Romance Department, lives in constant 
terror lest Whip's pointed shafts should find deficiencies in his carefully nurtured panoply of erudition; though this, of 
course, does not imply hostility. Whip without Bowie, as Elwood neatly puts it. would be as Johnson without Bosweli. 
With Dixie, they make a worthy trio for keeping Haverford actively conscious of the lustre of 1915. 

Speaking of "15. gentle reader, reminds us that it is to Whip we owe this final expression of our undergraduate life. 
Minions have striven manfully indeed, but the incisive zeal which restrains his true Byronic weariness of soul is what accounU 
for our small measure of success. 
It was a true prophet who once 
wrote that "God wrought special 
miracles by the hands of Paul. " 

In Phil. V, Whip hearkens 
undisturbed when Rufe firmly 
stresses the necessity of Ideals. H? 
is himself doubly supplied. The 
one — but by now this is an accom- 
plished fact — is to sp)ort the elusive 
<1> B K within the ample recesses of 
his bosom. The other, unattain 
able as true ideals should be. is to 
beat Mac Weikel a single set of 
tennis. But these are ideals. 
Should we not at least touch upon 
that completed aspiration for the 
renovation of the Ardmore C. E.. 
with its deadly consequences in the 
hearts of fair Ardmoriennes? 
Which naturally calls to mind 
that classic phrase: — "DON'T

No, he's no relation to William Allen and he doesn't come from South Carolina, either, — you're thinking about 
Freddy. White stepped into the shoes of the great Baxter Richardson. And he has filled them — not that we would 
say anything about Alph's feet. Perish the thought ! He is a careless soul and works on impulse like a Ford. He is 
a leading supporter of Philly shows and cannot be found on Saturday nights. He has fallen under the spell of F. B. 
Gummere and has been the victim of the proselyting Helveston. He is a somewhat shy bird, however, and seems out 

of place anywhere but in Founders. 
But there he is in his element and 
"High, Low, Jack and the Game" 
reign supreme. So emboldened has he 
become that he has dared to add a fifth 
to the above mentioned immortal four, 
to-wit, the Joker. Also, he sings, "Dar-

"A bright flash of fire shall be hurled at you; yea, and molten brass, and ye shall not defend 
yourselves from it." (The Koran.) 

As ibe curtain rises, the last strokes of Founders' Bell — the second one — are heard fading alDajj. The scene dis- 
closed is the large math room. Dr. Srvatsome is seated behind a desk Uttered with papers, charts, diagrams, notebooks 
and numberless card indices with the tabulation of Tvhich he is busil\) engaged. The room is emptv except for a fere of 
the more conscientious; Taylor, Wagner, IVebsler, and Care]) being conspicuous among these. The last named is slon>lv 
turning the pages of his notebook endeavoring to determine whether or not he has brought the right one. As Dr. S. rises 
to call the roll, the majority of the class storm into the room. Having gone over the names, he reads the list of absentees, 
reads it again, then trvice more and is about to start lecturing U'hen a bic\)cle bell is heard and Turner strolls noncha- 
lantly in. 

Dr. S. (ignoring Brink's companionable nod) — "Gentlemen, as you know, the object of this course is to come down 
flat footed on certain Social Maladjustments. In today's lecture it is my purpose to come across to the group with the 
very concrete problem of Feeblemindedness. Do you realize that in this country (readmg from mdex No. 7) there are 
200,000 pronouncedly feebleminded, of whom only 30,000 are confined in institutions? Even taking a birdseye view 
of this problem it is evidently time to draw a halt and prevent the Social Stream from being contaminated. In Virginia, 
for instance, — none of you gentlemen are from Virginia, I believe, — they have put all their energy into swatting the fly 
and stamping out hog cholera and have no law for domesticated idiots. The results are evident." (Dixie strives to 
rise but is quickly subdued and cast under the bench by M' hippie and Votaw. Halletl shakes his head reprovingly at

Dr. S. {failing to notice an\^thing beyond the usual atmosphere of unrest.) — "You can thrash out this problem any 
way you will — when there are 250,000 undoubtedly feebleminded in this country, and only 20,000 of them in confine- 
ment, somebody is asleep at the switch. Now if there is one thing I want to get over to this group in terms of 100% 
it is the potentiality of the Economic Environment in the realms of the Ethnological, Aesthetic, and Spiritual. Probably 
very few of you gentlemen realize that if turnips had not been grown in Sweden, Wordsworth would never have been born." 
(This statement has an animating effect on the ctass. A ferv look puzzled, some amused, the aristocracy of intellect some- 
rvhat dazed. Hallett and Loring Crosman nod their heads approvingly.) 

Dr. S. — "Such evident facts are highly significant in our study of Feeblemindedness. By the census of the U. S. 
Bureau of Printing and Engraving for 1850 — I regret that I have been unable to obtain more recent figures —we see that 
there are today 300,000 feebleminded in this country, and only 10,000 of them in institutions. The onus of this must 
rest upon the machinations of the Higher Thimblerig who permits the doors of our almshouses to swing both ways. Now, 
I'll call for volunteers to tell me why the Economic Environment as evidenced by the absence of windows in bathrooms 
should have led to these very significant figures." (Looking around triumphantl]) Dr. S. catches sight of Taylor Tvilh 
both hands snapping vehemently, the left having jomed its mate, raised at the beginnmg of the class. He nods conde- 
scendingly. ) 

Kemp. — "Yes, sir, I can. And (proudly) I've thought of another very good example. It illustrates the Economic 
background thoroughly — if men had never built ships America would probably not have been discovered" (Dr. S. accepts 
this statement rvith reserve and passes on to Nitobe D>/io has been squirming in his seat ivith evident disapproval.) 

Tobe (rvilh explosive energy) — "Dr. Swatsome, in Japan we never have bathrooms at all and I'm sure that there are 
not as many feebleminded there as here." 

Dr. S. (pondering this deeply) — "Mr. Nitobe, that's a very interesting point and I'm glad you brought it up. Of 
course I am speaking of feeblemindedness in its 100% aspects, which perhaps you do not fully realize. I'm very sorry 
that the exigencies of this course won't permit me to go into the matter here, but if you would like to come round to the 
house some time I'll introduce you to the young hopeful and we can thrash it out thoroughly. (Looking at his rvatch.) 
Well, gentlemen, I see we have only twenty minutes left so I will devote the remainder of the hour to a brief discussion

disaster." (Appalling silence ensues, broken only by a nasal enconium from the "Impatient Philosopher" of the bacl( 
rolp, — "Good boy, Edgar!") 

Dr. S. — "I should be glad to talk this (Xjint over with you after the hour. Meanwhile I can probably make my point 
more plain by means of this chart." (While an extensively crayoned sheet is being conspicuously mounted. Falconer, i»ho 
has been taking down every p-rarl rvilh breathless avidity, seizes his opportunity.) 

Cy — "Pardon me, Dr. Swatsome, but would you mind repealing those figures about feeblemindedness?" 

Dr. S. — "Certainly not. Falconer, it is a very good thing to drive in your peg at this place. (Refers to various 
indices but. receiving no enlightenment, mal(es a ferv calculations on the margin of a "Survey." ) Falconer, I'm glad you 
raised this significant point and it might be well for the class to take down these figures. According to Dr. Ayre's inves- 
tigation of the South Bethlehem Textile Turnverein there are today 600,000 proved feebleminded in this country. Of 
these but I 7,000 are confined in institutions." 

Cy (scribbling frantically) — "Thank you, sir." 

Hubert (aside to Sam Wagner) — "That's because they have folding doors in the almshouses." (Both note this 
significant fact.) 

Dr. S. — "I want to round out this discussion by gett'r.T across to the group with a few very homely truths. For 
instance, as I have said once before, man is not as prone to do evil as sparks are to fly upwards. Also I would discuss the 
Eugenic possibilities of hereditary sterilization but as worked out in feebleminded rats it has proved a complete failure. Of 
course this rather floors the Lamarckian theory, does it not, Mr. Shaffer?"

HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



The Flounderers' Society 




N FRIDAY , January 11, eleven Seniors gathered in the luxurious apartments nf "the Count" on the third 

floor of South Barclay. In the center of the room the old guard was at the old game. Through the smoke 

which lose lazily toward the ceiling, the pale faces of Brink, Hor.us, the Tobe, Don, Weik, and Moore shone 

white in the gloom. Coley was invisible but audible. I he chips clinked monotonously. Tom Hoopes drew 

a poor hand and immediately, observing that it was time to begin the meeting, coralled the royal family and 

the chips. The two Eds, Levi and the Count pushed their chairs to the wall. 

"Fellows," began Tom, "this is one of the most serious assemblies that has ever been at Haverford and I think it only 
proper that we should open with a brief period of silence." The eleven modest Seniors solemnly bowed their heads and a 
sacred silence, loud with the inspired purpose of that gathering, hovered visibly over them. Don mutilated it by quoting 
in scriptural tones — "Of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh." With earnest- 
ness, Tom spoke as follows: 

"Most of you know the purpose of this meeting. For three and a half years, we have watched in shameful lethargy 
the growing menace of Scholarship and Efficiency. For three and a half years the Phi Beta Kappa has been a thorn in the 
flesh and its flashing keys a red rag to our gaze." Coley interrupted: "I move we confiscate that umbilicus protector of 
L. G. Bowman's. Jeece, it makes me sore!" Tom grinned and continued: "Within the past few months we have seen 
the birth of the Founders' Society. The situation has become intolerable! These societies are crushing out the very vitality 
of our college. Weik, Levi, Henry, and some more of us have realized its peril and wish to present for your consideration 
this evening a plan for forming a new society which will be the salvation and glorification of Haverford." (A few hand- 
claps. "Hear! Hear!" from Farr.) "At first we will probably be a voice in the wilderness but now is the time to act." 
"That's from the Bible." mumbled Levi. 

"The eleven fellows who have assembled are men who have succeeded in affixing the coveted asterisk to their names 
in the college catalog during Junior and Senior years. It is our duty to sacrifice even our studies in this unselfish effort to 
save the college. We'd like to hear what you fellows think of the idea. 

Looking unusually sober, Tom took his seat. No one spoke — the cigarettes burned more brightly and Ed Crosman's 
pipe gurgled contentedly. The Count was moved to speech. In dazzling neatness he stood before us, swinging slowly 
backwards and forwards on his heels and toes. Head to one side he gazed into the cloud of smoke and blinked rapidly. 
Then he flicked the ashes from his cigar dramatically. Brink was trying in feverish haste to get the gesture down on oaper. 

"Fellow liberators," he began, "nothing so stirs my very soul as shirking under an ideal whether high or low. I move 
that the society be called the Flounderers' Society. Let it be a society of the unsung heroes of the lower half — of those 
who can average an honorable 'E' or'D' and who are not afraid to flunk." ("It is better to have tried and flunked than 



147 



NINETEEN FIFTEEN RECORD 



never to have tried at all," stammered Moore's mustache.) "Let our society stand in every way for Individuality and the 
expansion of the Ego." 

"Stick out your chest, Honus," cried Coiey. 

"Let us fight to the last man with Wogglebuggian strength against the present effort on the part of the faculty to make 
a Haverford type — that terrible tendency which is strangling the very life of our institution." 

Then Honus arose; the burden of the Cap and Bells made him list to port. 

"Fellows," said he, "I think the society should have a pin. I've had considerable experience in selecting pins as Chair- 
man of the Safety Pin Committee of the Cap and Bells. " 

"Excellent idea, something circular with a picture of the cmder track," suggested Brink. 

"I therefore suggest," continued Sam undaunted, "that we adopt the asterisk as the symbol of our society." 

"Say, cull, where were you dragged up?" questioned Coley. 

"Aw, Coley, that isn't funny." 

"SOME comeback," said Scranton. 

Yo seized the floor with both feet. "Mr. Chairman, I propose that the pin be worn modestly on the back of the 
undershirt." (Audible approval.) "And, while I am on my feet, I wish to set forth a few ideas in exotic words and as 
cryptically as possible. Sociologically speaking, I would urge ihat great efforts be made to boycott professors who insist 
upon delivering "bull" seminars. All prospective members shcu'd be asked to take German A. or Greek A." 

"I wouldn't take German A. for Kaiser Bill himself," mused Coley. 

Ed Crosman rose slowly. "Mr. Chairman, I th'.nk we should carry on an advertising propaganda work amon^ ihe 
schools, using the Gummere Card Catalogue system. And perhaps make personal trips by auto to some of the nearby in 
stitutions of learning." 

The Count's stickpin, ring and hair glistened approval. 

It sounded like sand paper but it was Levi passing the back of his hand over his mouth in order to open it. "I move 
we adjourn. Whose deal, Ed?" 

"Just a second Mr. Chairman." It was Weik, the silent promoter of the "Scarlet." "I think we ought to have some 
honorary members just for form if nothing else. I move that Minot, Addie Bliss, Bro Kling, Scarey, the Egg, Theis, and 
Jim Ellison be unanimously elected Honorary Members." 

"Second the motion. A fine bunch," said Ed Farr in a fatherly tone. 

"Fellows, the spirit of this meeting convinces me that Beatty's firstborn will meet an early death and the Phi Beta 
Kappa will soon be treated with the scorn it deserves. Deal me five aces, Ed, I dare you." 

The cards slid to the table from Ed's skilful hands; the ch'ps clicked once more, the bickering began; the smoke 
thickened. The night passed out and a new day dawned for Haverford.

HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



(A farce in one act) 



Scene: The bacleriological lab. It is earlv morning. The first red rays of a Bunsen burner fall upon the pale cheel( 
of Ellison, who yaivns, stretches, and crawls out from among the guinea pigs. Knowlton is seen to shiver and creep closer 
to the while mouse that shares his bed with him. A famt, distant rumble as of a giant waltzing on a tin roof is heard in 
the direction of the incubator. This gradually increases in volume until a deafening roar the door of the incubator opens 
and Choate steps daintily out. Wallfing to the door post he ranges alongside and marks the spot reached by the top of 
his head. Choate (triumphantly) — "An eighth of an inch more! This incubatin's good stuff!" 

IVithout a word Ellison and Knowlton have turned to t!.eir worl(. Choate places a mouse in the whirling machine 
and turns it idly. Suddenly the door is burst open and Herb Taylor enters wild-eyed. Herb — "Five minutes to make 
culture tubes!" 

In desperation he places bouillon, agar, gelatine, millf. potatoes, etc., in a large iron vessel and boils it over a quictf 
fire. He turns away for a moment, and Ellison, with quiet determination, drains the broth at a single draught, then resumes 
his work. Knowlton, who has witnessed the treachery, seizes a cover glass and makes for him, only to be restrained by 
Herb and Choate. Knowhon (sobbing) — "Wah ! Now I'll have to gel breakfast and that'll put Jimmie one-tenth point 
ahead of me!" 

The 8:30 bell rings. Enter Furies and K. Taylor. Taylor removes his coat, places it in a corner, curls up on it and 
is soon asleep.

Faries (pToducing a culture lube from his pocl^et) — "Ha! Leprosy! Want to smell it?" 

The rest retreated alarmed, — all save Choate, who, in the interests of science, smears a little of the culture on his 
nose. For upwards of half an hour the class amuses itself at the expense of the lab.'s dumb animals. Suddenly there is 
a quicif step on the gravel path, the door opens, and Dr. Babbit, clad in a gr.p overcoat, with a felt hat pushed far bacl( on 
his head, enters precipitously. The six worlfcrs are busy at their worl(: they have not heard him enter, so fascinated are 
they by the great Science of Bacteriology. Knowlton (peering into microscope) — "Ah! here's a Prodigiosa I wish Dr. 
Babbit were here to see this." (Turning around and l(nocl(ing Dr. Babbit off his feet.) "Ah! You are here! Ha-ha!" 
Dr. Babbit (using microscope) — "Yes, that's splendid! Just come here, class, and look at this great splendid Prodigiosa 
that Knowlton has isolated!" 

(The class crowds obediently around the microscope.) Knowlton — "What disease does Prodigiosa cause. Dr. Bab- 
bit?" Dr. Babbit — "Er — ah — " Knowlton — "Is it small-pox?" Dr. Babbit — "Why, yes, of course." Knowlton — 
"Who discovered it?" Dr. Babbit — "Eer — ah — " 
Knowlton — "Was it Jones?" Dr. Babbit — "Why, yes, of course." 

At this point Choate breal(s out m loud guffaws of unrestrained laufhler. Choate — "Ho-ho! Haw-haw! There 
isn't any slide under the microscope!" , 

Painful silence, during which Knowlton shifts uneasily from one foot to the other and Ellison tillers audibly. Dr. 
Babbit (brusquely) — "Now, class, please take seats in the other room." 

The class does as told. Dr. Babbit removes hat and coat and throws them on Faries. Dr. Babbit (assuming 
l(indly attitude) — "We have today the interesting study of hog-cholera. Last time you remember K. Taylor gave us the 
report on Ehrlich we have been waiting for so long. We saw how Ehrlich's theory embraced a general sort of systematic 
condition where the snarling octopus-like projections of the toxipheric portion of the molecule became associated with the 
cavern-like receptors of the differential polynuclear or large mono-nuclear leukocytes. Now, who knows anything about the 
Opsonic Index?" 

No answer from the class, though Ellison smiles reassuringly. Dr. Babbit (relieved) — "Then we won't study it. 
You remember also last time Knight told us about the hoof and mouth disease. Now this is an interesting topic because it 

150 



HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



is a frightful general sort of a systemic condition which we have all around us. I think Knight is an excellent example of 
hoof and mouth — " Choale (blushing) — "I beg your pardon — " Dr. Babbit — "Ha-Ho! I should say I think Knight 
is an excellent sort of investigator of hoof and mouth disease, because the first move of the health authorities at the outbreak 
of an epidemic is to confine all chickens! Ha-ha! Bui joking aside and strictly confidential, — I haven't fell the same 
about eating raw meat since Ellison's report on the tape worms. Oh! By the way, Herb, there was a man telephoned the 
office yesterday and said he didn't want any more dirty Indians sent up to referee his games! I do declare, doesn't it 
seem funny — I've often wondered that people can't be more considerate of one another. Why, the very gentility of coughing 
in a person's face should make an appeal. I had an interesting situation brought up a week ago: infection due to dandruff; 
made a scraping of an Italian gentleman's head — " K. Taylor — "He-he!" Dr. Babbit — "No, it wasn't what you think 
it was. But to return to hog cholera; it is interesting because man and chickens are immune to it, whereas the hog is im- 
mune to snake poison and the negro to yellow fever. Now isn't that an interesting general relation? Immunity, you see, 
is a relative term, and we must distinguish between warm and cold blooded animals, "^'ou see the antibodies float about 
in the blood serum and sensitive bacteria for infection by the phagocytes — blocks up like a dam in childhood's play-time, 
associated in a cess-pool kind of a condition that always reminds me of a tire puncture in Chinatown. These form the 
opsonins. What are the opsonins, Faries?" Faries (suddenly) — "You just told us we should WT-ry about opsonins." 
Dr. Babbit (unhurt) — "Did I? Well, next week we shall make a trip to town. Hew many of the class would like to go 
at ten o'clock?" All raise hands. Dr. Babbit — "How many would like to go at th'ee o'clock?" No hands are raised. 
Dr. Babbit — "Well then, that settles it. We'll go at three o'clock." (Herb stares wislfulh out of the mindon'.) "Now 
I wish you'd each take one of the mice and subject it to some sort of a general sort of experimenting. Why don't you, 
Ellison, feed it cheese with some of the streptococci on it and see if you can find them in its ear." Ellison (blushing) — "Do 
you think that would be a very nice place to look for them, sir?" Dr. Babbit — "And remember what I've told you about 
cog holera — I mean, ha-ha! rog golera — I mean — Knight, what do I mean?" Knight (swallowing) — "Log rolera!" 
Dr. Babbit (convulsed) — "Now I want you to finish up whatever work of a general routine sort you may have, and then 
that will do for today. (Snatches up hat and coat and hurries off. It is now 9:05.)

The Case of Bryn Mawr v. Haverford College 



TH E EVENING BULLETIN 



FIRED HAVERFORD STUDENTS 



Six Seniors Suspended for Midnight 

Serenade Near Bryn Mawr 

College Dorms. 



Six members of the Senior class of 
Haverford Collejje were suspended 
for two weelcs for singing' not wisely 
but too well under the windows of the 
Bryn Mawr College Dormitories as 
the conclusion of a class dinner. The 
six were returning from the Seniors' 
dinner at the Merion Cricket Club in 
an automobile after midnight on 
March 4. Somebody suggested a sere- 
nade and the machine was brought to 
a halt. 

The next morning complaints and 
communications flew between Haver- 
ford and Bryn Mawr, the offenders 
were lined up before President Sharp- 
less of Haverford and, after a sting- 
ing lecture, were sent home for two 
weeks of penitence. 

The Seniors were accused of driv- 
ing their machine at high speed 
through the Bryn Mawr campus. 
Even President Thomas was awak- 
ened by the noise, according to infor- 
mation transmitted to President 
Sharpless. Among the suspended stu- 
dents were E. L. Farr, star tackle of 



the football team; Thomas Hooper, 
Edward Megargee Levis of German- 
town, and W. H. Leland. 

President Sharpless refused to 
make any comment on the matter to- 
day and everybody at the office of M. 
Carey Thomas, president of Bryn 
Mawr, said that there was nothing 
more to be said. It is known, how- 
ever, that the official complaint to 
President Sharpless represented that 
the young ladies of Bryn Mawr were 
awakened by the racket outside and 
disturbed. There was an intimation 
that the singing was even off key. 

The members of the class are not 
yet convinced that the suspension was 
justified. It is a question that hangs 
on the unalienable right of college 
men to sing college songs on their 
way home from class gatherings. 
"We only sang the college songs," one 
of the members of the class said to- 
day. "We wished to do honor and 
homage to Bryn Mawr. a college tbat 
we hold in the highest esteem. The 
report that we drove the machine on 
the campus isn't true. I will admit 
that some of the chaps forgot about 
the time. It must have been pretty 
late. I wasn't there but I got a com- 
plete account of what happened. It 
was a lark and nothing more. No 
damage was done and there was noth- 
ing improper — except, of course, the 
hour."

Lawst evening, or rather, early this morning — at least 
twenty of your young male students .set foot upon these 
premises entirely overlooking the prominently displayed 
sign that "No trespassers are allowed on these 
grounds." My poor dear lambs were much disturbed by 
hilarious shouting and uproarious singing — much to the 
detriment of their needed beauty sleep. I can .scarcely 
imagine that you would condone such an unpardonable 
and unwarranted breach of the peace. So I look for you 
to have them immediately taken into custody for arson, 
trespass or treason.

TESTIMONY 
No. 1 — From a Bryn Mawr student, class of 1917. 

"Oh, Charlie! Were you in that party of songbirds 
that flew through here last Thursday night? Do you 
know — there were twelve men in the car besides the 
chauffeur. Nancy and I counted them. No, it was a big 
red touring car, a Fiat, I think. It just went around and 
around over the campus at least a dozen times. It was 
terribly exciting." 

(The above testimony thrown out, as the car happened 
to be a poor little Ford with seven occupants.) 

No. 2 — From the Bryn Mawr watchman. 

"Yis, on Thursday night, I stopped a crowd of young 
gintlemin a-going through the campus road. The one in 
the front seat near me said, 'We want to get to Rosemont 
— which road? ' I told 'em the first road tub the left, but 
I meant the first real road. But the first road took 'em 
right up to the Deanery, where the Head Missus stuck 
her head out the window and shoo-ed at 'em. But they 
soon left — and the songs they were singing were right 
good, especially Tipperary."

In the Library 



The library at five o'clock on a rainy afternoon. A//is Sharpless and Miss Bettlc at the dcsl(. Miss Ingalls in the 
offing examining the card catalogue. Students occasionally enter, drape their coats over the rail, and arc sivalloTved up in 
various alcoves. There is little other disturbance. A gentle but continuous paltering Tvhich, upon investigation, proves 
due to the meanderings of Uncle Allen collecting data for a nerv history of the United States. Also, every noTV and then, 
plaintive Tvails from an entombed Ifilten rvho seems most literally "xvrapped around with quiet Quaker spell," as a Swarth- 
more bard sang in the "Haverfordian" not very long ago. Enter Bowman, in the manner that March proverbially exits. 
Nobody looks up. He reopens the door and slams it viciously, coughs and marches to the desk. Uncle Allen incon- 
tinently retreats to his private office, locking the door behind him. 

Bowie — "Alright, Miss Sharpies, you can go now. I'm here. Miss Bettle, did you get those 'London Friends' 
straightened out all right? Rufus Jones made rather a mess of them yesterday. And by the way. Miss Sharpless. Dum 
was three minutes late in opening the library last night. Remember that in paying him. won't you?" He goes to thai 
strange vehicle which is used for returning books and, loading it with a copy of the "Literary Digest," trundles up and 
down the main aisle, his whole figure redolent of responsibdity and grim determination. Enter Spilzy, apparently in 
haste. He makes a bee line for Miss Ingalls, who receives him placidly. 

Spitz — "Ah Miss Ingalls. may I — er. — ask you to reserve some — let me think — yesss — some two dozen books for 
French III? Any books. I'm not particular — except that they had better be French books. ^ e-ess. I think they must

I must see Crowell! Charming fellow. Jimmy! Why come to th'nk of '• I ouaht to have seen him long ago!" He rushes 
out quite oblivious of Bowie's solicitous eye. At the door he pa."ics Mr. Collins rvho shambles into the North wing. 
listens at a register to the feline complaints, turns off the heal and listens again, and th'm silently glides out, viewing all 
who come in his direct line of vision with the utter hopelessness of a German philosopher. For a few moments there is 
comparative quiet, Bowie having retired to the third floor of the stack foom. Enter Brink Turner. He surveys the prospect, 
nods to Miss Ingalls who is now at the desk ^"d consults a memorandum. 

Brink — "I want Sin and Society, The Cit'V of Dreadful \'ighl, and Sodom's Social Solution in Modern Moral 
Movements. Tliese are reserved for Phil. V. Doubtless you could tell that by the titles." Miss Ingalls, her face suffused 
to a most becoming hue, hands over the last two with avert d head. She then opens a drawer and consults the records. 

Miss Ingalls- — Mr. Turner. Dr. Cadbury has that firs; book. In fact (with a charming burst of candor) he has had

preceded fcp Miss Harlmg — "but it didn't do the least bit of good, everything turned out just as I told the Governor it 
would way back before the last primaries. If you ever expect to mstUute an hcnest, rational. Republican system of" — 
the n^ords fade an>a\], muffled hp the folds of a long blacl( coal which he is removing from a perilous position on the tip 
of his right shoulder. Several students enter. A bang is heard in the lobby, where Gene and Felix are depositing the 
wheelbarrow in which they hear the nightly quota of hooks to Merion. Without delay both dash for the laden shelves of 
treasure in the South wing. Miss Bellle seeing that it is six o'clock, heaves a sigh of relief and rises to turn off the lights. 
This has been almost accomplished, and the building is all but denuded of humanity when the door again opens, — this 
time only a few inches. A sandy bristling beard, eyes terrible despite their watery blueness, and a lofty brow which merges 
imperceptibly into a sinewy neck comes into view. Satisfied with his survey. Lyman Beecher enters collectively, nods fiercely 
to the timorous and embarrassed Miss Settle and strides with grim purpose round the piles of periodicals, whence be 
slfims the cream as idle fancy prompts. Dispensing with the medieval formality of "Signing up" he briskly disappears 
from view. As the last light snaps off, old Founders' Bell rings its evening call to supper and darkness and silence reign 
supreme within our "cemetery of books."

HAVERFORD COLLEGE 



An Unpublished "News" Story 



T. Crinkly Burner addressed the Y. M. C. A. on Sunday evening on women, spring, watches and bugs. The meeting 
was largely attended. Great enthusiasm and feeling was shown by the congregation. I en converts hit the trail — it is now 
in the Infirmary for repairs. Mr. Burner announced "Old Black Joe" as the opening hymn, but evidently had some doubts 
whether Henry (janitor, colored) was in the building, for a whispered conversation with Rorly resulted in the singing of 
"God Save the King." A short prayer from Closman left hardly a dry eye in the room as "Oh, God! Be with our 
speaker" quavered through the silence. After the prayer. Burner began immediately: 

"What man who lives in Merion these Spring days, what man who observes even the bugs and beetles flying toward 
the light, hears the tender rustle of the grass growing toward the heavens, sees the tender buds of ivy vines peeping in his 
windows, hears the tinkle of the phone bells, thinks on his pro.\imily to Bryn Mawr, watches the steadfastness of the 
dining-room steps, what man, I say, whose soul is alive to these influences, doubts that he has a soul? What man who 
notices all this does not feel the surge of the infinite. Fellows, I have been asked to talk to you. I bring message that 
Spring is here, beautiful, inspiring, wonderful — a-a-h. Spring! But though Spring is here, you must not forget — you 
know there was a fellow named Jones. He worked on the 'Evening Transcript," but Til touch on that later. At present 
I want to touch on girls. 

"You know there are a lot of girls. I don't want to talk about all of them. Here is the good substantial sort who 
is an inspiration to a man's life. The kind who can make good pies and dust chairs — keep the house in order you know — 
and make pies. Well, anyway — that's not the kind of girl I want to talk about. You know the kind I mean. They go 
past Merion. They live in Ardmore. But there are a good many down around Preston, too. Some of them live around 
here and there's a sprinkling around Bryn Mawr. Well, fellows, you know, it doesn't pay to doll around with these 
Hossies. It doesn't pal;.' (Dreamily.) It's nice, though. But oh, I say, fellows — it doesn't pay. Cut it out. 

"Has anyone here read Elbert Hubbard's 'Message to Garcia?' Rorly? Well, — you know this fellow Brink — 1 
mean Jones, who reported on the 'Transcript.' He had a message to carry, not exactly to Garcia — but to carry, you know. 
Well, he got the street and number wrong, and wasted lots of time. \'ou know fellows — always get your street and num- 
ber right. Because if you don't, you'll waste time. The modern business man wants efficient workers. He doesn't want 
any time wasted. So get your number right. 

"Oh, hell, fellows, reform. You know you can't go on this way. Class-rooms now. If you can't listen to your 
professors — well, stay away, that's all. But don't overcut. You'd better listen to the professors, I guess. But keep your 
watches in your pockets. I know I've wasted 'years looking at my watches, my watch, I mean. I say, Rorly, what's that 
snappy hymn you wanted to close with? Oh, yes! Well, fellows, we'll close with 'Crossing the Bar' (wiping the 
back of his hand across his mouth) — sounds good doesn't it!" 

Mr. Burner talked on many other topics, old clothes men, Bergdoll, the war, and Mormonism but space forbids an 
absolutely verbatim report of the most interesting speech that Rorly has arranged this year.
