FOREWORD 



N PRESENTING our fellows the 
Record Board has striven to 
avoid both undeserved eulogy and 
bitter sarcasm. We have tried to 
depict the student body and activi- 
ties oF the hHaverford of today — 
conservative in its Quaker tradition 
and now approaching the hundredth 
anniversary of its foundation.

CLASS HISTORY 



Our First Three Years 



being an account of student activities in Haverford College compiled 
from the papers of U. GESS HOO, '32, during his stay at the college 
from September, 1928 to June, 1931. 



PREFACE 

"Hooey", as he was known to his friends, is at once the typical col- 
lege student of the period under consideration and at the same time a boy 
unlike any of his classmates. He is typical in the sense that he did most 
of the things which a college student was expected to do, and unique in 
the fact that he alone had the foresight to record his experiences. As 
little editorial comment as possible will be inserted, for it is desired to let 
Hoo's own personal account speak for itself. 



FIRST Impressions of College. 
Hooey's clear understanding of the position which 
he occupied ni the College community is revealed in 
this following entry into his diary dated September 20, 1928. 
"Fm a poor little freshman, as all of you know, 
Yet the sophomores guide me wherever I go; 
And if I would profit since leaving prep schools, 
I must carefully obey all the following rules: 
I'll respect every man of the three upper classes. 
And get off the sidewalk whenever one passes. 
I'll do all the work of the College A. A.; 
I'll perform it with neatness and without delay; 
I'll answer the 'phone bell the minute it rings, 
Although 1 am busy with pleasanter things: 
To evening meals, lectures, and Meeting I'll wear 
A stiff linen collar with scrupulous care: 
And I'll make it a point I'll never appear 
On the Haverford Campus in any headgear 
But the regular cap on my dull little dome ..."

September 20, 1928 
Dear Dad: 

I got here safe and sound yesterday. 
The first thing I did was to buy some 
furniture. I got a pretty good bed and 
chiffonier together for only five dollars 
from the boy that had the room last 
year. I paid fifteen dollars for a desk. 
It isn't in awfully good condition, but 
the boy I bought it from said it was 
pretty hard to get anything for less than twenty-five so I snapped it up. 
After supper last night we were told to go to our rooms and get into 
our pajamas. After that we were collected together out in front of the 
dorms and driven like a herd of sheep on our hands and knees over to the 
football field. There the upperclassmen had a field day at our expense 
with "crew races", wheelbarrow races, and the like. Meantime it was 
raining hard. Then they had an elimination race, the first ten men drop- 
ping out at the end of each lap. I got cramps on the second lap. After 
that there was a tug-o'-war down in a swamp which for some reason they 
call the skating pond. 

I thought the activities of the night were over then, but they were 
just begun. I am not able to sit down today with the same equanimity 
and composure as vesterday. . . . 

September 20, 1928. 
(To girl) 

. . . and so the next thing on the 
program was the egg shampoo. The 
members of the class were lined in a 
circle and each was given an egg which 
he was to use on the fellow to his right. 
I took mine and threw it at a member 
of the Customs Committee. Boy was 
he sore! But he never found out who 
threw it. Everybody was telling me 
how tough first night was going to be, 
but I enjoyed every minute of it . .

. So now I'm having to go 
around college with a sponge in my 
mouth and a sign bearing the legend.

'*I use prof<ane laiif^uaf^e." It seems 
we are supposed to tip our hats to 
members of the Customs Committee. 
And it is against the rules to do it to 
anybody else. One of a pair of twins 
is on the committee and the other 
isn't. I was sure that the one I was 
talking to was not on the committee 
and told liiin to go to hell when he 
asked me to tip my cap. I got the 

wrong twin. Thursday night Uncle Billy (that's what we call the presi- 
dent you know) had our class down to his house for a reception. When 
we got back we discovered that the sophomores had stolen all our pajamas. 
So we had a big fight. It was pretty good sport but we didn't get our paja- 
mas back until the next day . . . 




October 8, 1928. 
Mr Dear Mr. and Mrs. Hoo: 

. . . After the appointment of permanent faculty advisers, we will 
try to have them keep in touch with the parents either by correspondence 
or by conference. Consultation will be welcomed at any time. 

Very sincerely yours, 

H. Tatxall Brown, Jr.* 




*There is no further reference to a faculty 
adviser in any of Hoo's letters. Who he was or 
what was his function is an enigma to all 
scholars examining the material. 

October 15, 1928. 
(To home) 

. . I guess you read about the 

football game with Amherst. It was 
some game. You should have seen 
Uncle Billy throw his hat in the air 
and jump around when the touch- 
down that put us ahead was scored. 

You had better send me some 
more money.* There is a dance at 
College next week. Besides I am 
having to buy a lot of books . . 

*If there is one sentence that constantly 
recurs throughout the letters it is this sentence. 
Research shows that until the great depression

November 19, 19^28. 
(To brother) 

. . . but I suppose F(x) was no different when you were here at Col- 
lege. For yesterday's algebra class we rigged up an alarm clock on one 
of the chandeliers. It went off at exactly nine o'clock. Effie followed some 
seconds later. He was already a bit put out because all the windows were 
,ii)ick closed. It was a curious coincidence that all the handles to turn the 
radiators off were also missing. And you know how Effie likes his fresh 
air . . . 

I thought this place was going to be pretty tough. So far I haven't 
had to do much work. But 1 guess I didn't get such bad preparation in 
Woodbury High after all ...

got a lot of tough breaks in my examinations. I will try to 
do better at the half-year. 

November 26, 1928. 
(To home) 

. . . so the faculty, not satisfied that the college is stiff enough, has 
contrived a new scheme of torture, known as the comprehensive examina- 
tion, to be taken in your major subject at the end of four years. 

We had a big bonfire last Friday night for a sort of pep meeting before 
the Delaware game. After the soccer game with Swarthmore, some of 
their boys tried to light it. There was a general fight following. Coach 
Harman waded in swinging with l)oth right and left. To my knowledge 
the only person he hit was myself ... I feel better today. 

December 5, 1928. 
(To home) 

. . . the refrain of this letter ought to be "The old grey pants! They 
ain't no more." We had a pants fight with the sophs. We lined up at 

13 




one end of the field, the sophs at the other. At the signal we rushed in at 
each other, and in no time the field was a mass of rags and wiggling 
humanity. I had sewed my pants on previously, so the sophs were able 
to do little with them. We won 3-2. The Customs Committee has let 
us off rules for a while. 

December 17, 1928. 
(To girl friend) 

. . . and the dean called me into his office. He said I got sixteenth 
in the class on my psychological exam, while I was seventy-second in 
general scholastic average. He told me that they would be much more 
likely to kick out somebody that showed ability to do good work but 
didn't do it than somebody who did worse on the psych exam and had the 
same average. I guess I better get my nose down to the grindstone. 

The Freshman class gave an entertainment for the rest of the college 
last night in the form of skits from the stage show of the Ne-Hi night club. 
Modesty rather forbids my going into any detail about the acts. 

You would think from this clipping that John sent me that Haverford 
is an armed camp at present ... * 



*From the Johns Hophin.s Nejcs Letter: At the present time students of Haverford are 
walking about the campus trying to look as innocent as possible, for a number of thefts on 
the campus have been the cause of a searching investigation by the authorities.

March 4, 1929. 
(To home) 

1 suppose you have read in the papers by now about our Rliiuie 
revolt. The Customs Committee has not given us a square deal and we 
are through. We have been on rules long enough, and I'd like to see the 
rest of the (^ollege try to get us back on. 

March 10, 1929. 

(To home) 

. . . but what I object to most of all is wearing peach baskets as 
shoes everywhere I go around the campus. 

March 20, 1929. 

. . . anyway the Student Council has agreed to cut out the green 
caps and ties. Also 1 believe they are going to try a new system of elect- 
ing the Customs Committee so the six worst hell-raisers in College won't 
form a burlesque court to make the Rhinies jump every time they say 
"Frog!". 

Tat Brown is going to be made dean next year. He will have a tough 
time maintaining as stern an exterior as his predecessor. 

April 22, 1929. 
. . our colored janitor preaches on the side for a living. At his 
insistence a half dozen of us went down to his little church Sunday night. 
But when the hat was passed we all left. Robinson told us beforehand 
that he gets 50 per cent of the offering as his salary, .so we saved our con- 
tribution to give to him the next day. 

The college food has not been getting any better. I noticed that 
one of the College dray-horses disappeared last week. Speaking of horses, 
I see they are going to give several new courses in Political Science next 
year.

To Betty Co-ed: 

. . . It was darn nice having you 
down to the prom, Betty. I was par- 
ticularly glad to have you here while 
we beat Swarthmore in both baseball 
and track. The weather couldn't have 
been nicer and I thought the orchestra 
was o.k. It was my first college Junior 
Prom and believe me Betty you should 
have seen some of the upperclassmen 
looking at you and then, enviously, at 
me during the dance. 

You know there is an old tradition 
with the arbor vitae tree that we sat 
under back of the library in the garden, 
Perhaps you can figure out what it is 

; now. 

The exams are just around the 

corner now and I really am going to have to work for a couple of weeks, 

but I'll be home soon and that will l)e the end of all green caps, artist's 

ties, black garters, etc. 

September 23, 1929. 
Home: 

and the Rhinies don't even have to wear green caps and ties 
any more. You see it isn't in keeping with their dignity as members of 
the class of 1933 at Haverford College. And this year, now that we are 
sophomores, and are in a position to enjoy first night, what happens.' 
We have a party for the frosh. They serve ice cream and cookies. The 
freshmen's chief difficulty at the present time is figuring out how the 
college was able to get along 96 years without them. 

I suppose maybe it's for the best. 
We didn't enjoy first night so much 
la.st year. The new policy is to 
"assimilate" the freshmen. 

I often wondered just what Uncle 
Billy's attitude on the subject of pro- 
hibition is. Well, we found out. 
Haverford College is not interested in 

educating students addicted to the use ^^L _^^^B||k \ V 
of intoxicating liquor. I trust the

(\)lk'^o will never lose interest in my 
edneation on that acconnt. 

October 7, 1929. 
Home: 

Last night they were showing the 
"Sophomore" at the Seville Theatre. 
About thirty of us sophomores at- 
tended to make the i)ieture a hit more 
realistic. The management did not 
seem to appreciate or even he willing 
to tolerate our vocal retrain. So we 
were "requested to leave." 

To THE Editor of the News: 

As a specimen of sophomoric 
asininity the spectacle at the Seville 
Theatre last Friday night deserves 
honorable mention. 

The running fire of comments . . . 
tion for the rights of others at the theatre 
a year at Haverford has not brought with it some concern for the good 
name of the College as well as an appreciation of the qualities of a gentle- 
man. 

November 4, 1929. 
Home: 

You might gather from my letters that I don't study all the time 
I'm here at College. Well I don't. You know- Hallowe'en was last week. 
If on the next day the authorities at the College farm checked up closely 
they would have found one pig missing. And that pig was finally cornered 
in Denbigh Hall at Bryn Mawr after a two-hour chase by the girls living 

there. I wonder who could have 
taken it up there. 

The next morning an ancient and 
honorable Model T Ford was found 
dozing gently, minus its wheels, on 
the porch in front of Roberts Hall. 
Uncle Bill merely remarked that it 
was funnier the first time it happened 
than the tenth. 

We were all posed for our class 



showed a total lack of considera- 
It is extremely regrettable that

})icture one afternoon last week on 
the soph steps of Founders. Suddenly 
a barrel of water came pouring down 
from the upper regions. The photog- 
rapher and the whole class were 
really soaked. If we had found the 
jiarties responsible within the next few 
minutes, it would have been too bad. 
Rumor persists in associating the name 
of Irish Logan with the affair. 



Our most recent attempt to enable the College to collect fire insur- 
ance on the remains of that architectural monstrosity of a Barclay Hall 
ended rather ignominiously. \\'ith fires blazing on the first, second, and 
third floor corridors and a most conscientious member of the Student 
Council following in our wake in the newly-invented game of Hide-and- 
go-seek-the-fire, all that resulted w^as a tw^o-dollar fine for all parties con- 
cerned and an exorbitant bill from Doggy Johnson for the alleged 
damages . . . 

(Editor's Note: Subsequently it developed that the Student Council member was 
quite human and his duties in the years following did not seem to weigh quite so heavily on 
his shoulders.) 



Home: 



February 6, 1930. 

. . . so it looks like Harvey Harm an is not going to be back with 
us next year. He was and is a fine gentleman and a good coach and I am 
really sorry to see him go. I hope he does as well at Sewanee as he has 
done here. 

We had a peace poll here last week. It seems that there are 36 of us 
in the College who would be willing to let Uncle Sam stew in his own juice 
if he should get involved in a war. There are 85 more who reserve the 
right for themselves to decide whether or not the war is a just one. Just 

how we could help but decide that 
it is a just war with all the propa- 
ganda that is put out every time 
there is a war puzzles me. 

I see that Haverford is to have

March 4, 1930. 
To THE Philadelphia Newspapers: 
Attention: Sports Editors: 

In response to your requests for most recent developments in the 
championship tiddley-winks tournament I desire to submit the following 
statement which may be taken as authentic: 

Kendall E. Read of the class of 193'-2 and tiddle champion of North 
Lloyd was defeated last week by Logan, left tiddle on the Founders team, 
in a spirited match in the latter's dormitory. Read, at a disadvantage on 
account of his left -handedness, bowed to the tune of 6-L Read seemed 
unable to reach the floor properly. 

Intercollegiate contests are desired and it is hoped to book a contest 
with Swarthmore soon if that college can produce a team. 

:May 12, 1930. 
Home : 

Not to be outdone by the University of Pennsylvania we had our own 
little miniature "rowbottom" last Thursday. Result: Two Fords on 
Roberts, one Ford on Founders porch, the faculty on camp stools in Col- 
lection the next morning, 275 bleary-eyed students in Collection and an 
administration (Uncle William) mildly griped. 

I understand the .lunior Prom on Friday was a great success. One of 



19 



_^1^^^ 




life's little tragedies was that I was 
incarcerated with an alleged case of 
pink eye in the infirmary. 

Last week we took the fifteen hours 
of examination given to sophomores in 
Pennsylvania colleges. We took exams 
in English, math, foreign language, a 
social science, a natural science, and 
" general " culture. It didn't seem to me 
that I went so good in the general 
culture. 

(Editor's Note: Such honors as there were were gathered by Haverford with ten firsts 
when the results of the Carnegie exams were announced.) 

September 29, 1930. 
Home: 

It looks like I will be bringing the Mayflower back home to stay when 
I come home next week-end. The new rules prohibit keeping a car on the 
campus overnight and I haven't got the dough to spend on a garage. 
Besides one has to have a note from one's parents stating that it is with 
their full knowledge and consent that a car is being kept. Knowing your 
feelings on the subject I am not going even to bother asking for such a note. 

Uncle Bill repeated the familiar formula in the opening collection of 
the year by stating that the college "is not interested in educating any 
student addicted to the use of intoxicating liquor. " So have no fear for 
the safety of your son. 

October 15, 1930. 
Home: 

Some of the boys have been forming a new organization known as 
the Delta Alphas. It is devoted to the advantageous cultivation of 
leisure time through the medium of the good old bull session. It is sup- 
posed to be broadening. Personally I think that it will prove broadening 

in the main only to that portion of the 
human anatomy on which a normal 
person sits. 

The college has acquired a new 
detective. What his real name is 
nobody knows or cares. He has been 
christened " Flannelfoot " and Flannel- 
foot he will stay as long as he stays at 
Haverford. He is finding his job diffi- 
cult in the extreme. Imagine having 




20 



I J^^^^ 




to tra\'C'l from one sludciit's room to 
another buniniing a cigarette (Flannel 
^vill he ghid to Inrnish matches) at each 
stoj) . . . Imagnie the nervons strain 
involved in a job like that, lie sj)ent 
most of last week trying to discover 
the whereabonts of li(|nid soap dis- 
penser supposed to have been swiped 
from the Union. 

Tcm Thorpe, the old night watch- 
man, has been retired after sixteen years. He is a garrulous old soul, not. 
particularly efficient, but essentially well-meaning. 

October ^27. 1J).S0. 
Home: 

Two o'clock in the morning. The bell rings. Rufus gets up and 
answers the phone. It is Mr. Rabindranath Tagore speaking. He had 
gone to Washington earlier in the day to see President Hoover. Unfor- 
tunately Mr. Hoover had neglected to meet Mr. Tagore at the station 
and the Indian poet was mad and mad clean through. Rufus finally got 
him quieted down and in a more tolerant mood with regard to our honored 
president. Such is the life of a philosophy professor. Be philosophical. 

November 10, 1930. 
Home: 

At the special request of our honored instructor in French I went to 
hear M. Paul Hazard's lecture in French on Victor Hugo. The next day 
in class I reported that all I understood during the lecture was the word 
"vache". I was informed that the nearest thing to "vache" on the 
program was some mention of the islands of Jersey and Guernsey. 



Fe})ruary 9, 1931 



Home: 

You know Skytop isn't such a Ijad 
place to spend a week-end. I went 
up to the Poconos with the ^lusical 
Clubs this last week-end. Resides 
doing a bit of singing we did every- 
thing from playing ping pong and 
.shuffle-board and billiards and pool to 
tobogganing and skating. There was 
also a dance. 




21 



I see by the News that the College authorities are formulating a definite 
plan for improvement of the plac?^ during the next few years. Sixteen 
other colleges have been visited with a view to ascertaining their good 
features and adapting them to Haverford. I have a sneaking suspicion 
that in a few years this will be a place that one will be glad to say he has 
graduated from. But the Lord knows I find that it is hard enough as it is. 

We had a tea at College yesterday afternoon given by the wives of 
the faculty. Several of the girls from the Caskin School were present. It 
was a pleasant surprise to find so many really beauteous damsels within 
call. The tea was a huge success. So huge in fact that I was unable to 
get my coat pockets full of sandwiches at the end as has usually been 
possible. 

(Editor's Note: Perhaps the writer of this letter has a slight partiality towards the 
Caskin School. The editor kjaows from experience that not all the attractive girls attend 
that school.) 

March 1, 1931. 
Dear Mother: 

Perhaps you will be glad to know that I flunked this examination 
and therefore am not a really "collegiate type." 

1 . Describe a painting by Peter Arno. 

2. What will remove gin stains from (a) Tux lapels; (b) Black bed- 
spreads; (c) Seminar reports; (d) Suede shoes.' 

3. Who said Boop-oop-a-doop? 

4. Is Rudy Vallee's hair naturally curly? 

5. Will Andy fever marry Madame Queen? 

We have also had to fill out questionnaires for the College as to our 
extra-curricular activities, the time they take, and so forth. Also how to 
make us stay here 5ver week-ends. 

April 18, 1931. 
Dear Folks: 

I think you would have been proud of the College if you had been 
down here for Pre-Centenary Day today. The place never looked better. 
There were 1,400 visitors to the campus all of them seemingly well-pleased. 
President Lowell of Harvard, President Gates of Pennsylvania and L^ncle 
Billy all spoke. The College in session was on display all morning. The 
weather was perfect. Realizing the College's weakest spot, outside caterers 
were hired to feed the assembled multitude. We must keep our skeletons 
in the closet you know and the character of the food served in the College 
commons comes under this heading. 

Bert Lown is going to play at the Junior Prom. That should be

pretty good. It also reminds me that you had better send me a few extra 
dollars next month to cover the cost of the prom. I had meant to save a 
little up ahead but somehow — well, you understand, I need the extra 
dough to pay my class dues. 

May 17, 1931. 
Dear Folks: 

I suppose the climax of our class' social life has been reached and is 
now passed. Anyway I shouldn't care to repeat the past week-end every 
week, even though I did have a darn good time. 

Bert Lown played at the dance. I must admit I was rather startled 
though to hear what purported to be his band playing over the radio 
during the intermission. 

For some strange and unknown reason the weather was quite decent. 
The night was clear and the moon shone. Perhaps I hadn't })etter go on. 



Editor's Xote: During his Senior year Hooey's letter writing languished, and so it 
has been necessary to write the rest of this Record in order to describe his activities and 
friends in the year 1931-32.

STUDENT COUNCIL 

AN AUGUST assemblage of superior, impartial gen- 
tlemen, upholding the morals and manners of the 
- undergraduates — an organization to be feared by 
the common man and scarcely to be trifled with even by a Senior — such 
appears the Student Council (or Students' Council if you will be accurate) 
to the ordinary outsider. 

But before one passes final judgment upon this noble organization he 
should look within and possibly attend a meeting if he can reach up to 
the back windows of the Union. Does he find a dignity surpassing that 
of the United States Supreme Court? Does he find impartial wisdom? In 
all fairness we should answer "Sometimes"; but more often one's illusions 
would disappear. And before him would lie a group of normal college 
undergraduates, quibbling over small points to secure immunity for their 
roommates, voting for "the usual procedure "without the slightest idea 
of what that might be, and fussing with each other as to who should pay 
for the chair that Potts broke at the last meeting. So if this account of 
their activities may seem a bit serious or formal, just take it with plenty of 
salt and realize that the matters were dropped so that the council could 
go to the movies. 

For each of three successive years the council was due at some time 
or other to enter upon stormy deliberations and utter dire threats about 
two-week suspensions and two-buck fines. But during the past nine months 
President Potts has skillfully avoided all such annoying difficulties. Has 
the Honor System been violated? Well at least he didn't see it. Have 
some of the boys been drunk? Yes, but Potts wasn't around and no one 
else can remember anything about it. Do we want to smoke in the Chase 
lavoratory? Sure, but Uncle Billy is afraid it might turn into an oasis 
amid the scholarly deserts of that mighty hall. 

But — did somebody hit Wilmer in the back with an over-ripe sweet 
potato? Shame, oh shame. Two bucks and costs. Did somebody get 
really patriotic in a Waukie-Wau and try to put one of Ma Cinder's 
antique pitchers in its proper place? Gosh, all hemlock — the council must 
spring to action and pass a law (to what avail in these days of prohibition). 
This year, however, has not been in vain. The boys actually did petition 
the board of managers and get permission to skate on Sunday — for which 
heresy the powers that be decreed a winter of warm weather without much 
skating on ordinary days, much less the Sabbath. 

Despite the impression which may have been given above, consider- 
able advance has been made in the last four years along the lines of student 
government. Freshman year it was made explicitly clear that there would

be no toleration ol" liquor and honor system violations, and this policy 
was continued Sophomore year under the direction of Brad Abernethy. 
The honor system came in for its share in the beating that year when Al 
Wilson nearly cried on the boys' shoulders pleading with them to do some- 
thing about it; and this row was scarcely ended until Junior year when 
the pledge and method of administration were revised. A comprehensive 
survey of the undergraduates' desires in the Centenary program was 
undertaken at Katz's direction, and the council's activities for the year 
were closed with a wholesale housecleaning of the Bar Association just 
after spring vacation. 

HAVERFORD NEWS 

^^\'ERY Monday night just after six o'clock the cam- 
r~ pus gets just a little restless, and every Wednesday 
^^ or Thursday evening the alumni rush recklessly home 
— "Why"? you ask — nothing much, except that the week's issue of the 
News is due. For, l)e it ever so humble, be it ever so inaccurate and exas- 
perating, yet it is a week by week account of the college activities and we 
must all peruse it eagerly to see how many times our name appears (and 
more important — how many times it has been misspelled or mis-asso- 
ciated).

.^I^^^l^ 




HAVERFORD NEWS 

DesJardins, Lowenstein, Wells, Jones, Harjes, Worcester. 

Bowen, Wagner, Jopson, Kennedy, Allen. 

Hemphill, Gilbert, Van Denbergh, Bachmann, Bourne, Kerslake. 

Brinton, Dugdale, Gage, Baker, Lentz, Wray. 

Founded by the now famous Kenderdine and Hinshaw (?) (apologies 
to John L. B.) the News has passed through nearly all forms of journalistic 
endeavor. Once it was of the order of a prep-school weekly, then a college 
weekly, then a Newspaper (with a capital X) and finally it has become a 
tabloid. It was in the penultimate of these conditions when 193^2 entered 
College. 

Dave Hedley was editor and that is enough said (see last three Records 
for details). The Xeivs won the I. N. A. editorial cup in the fall at the 
expense of the Rhinies who had to turn out of North Barclay to house the 
convention; and the journalistic members of the class did their stuff and 
took their medicine. Dave retired shortly before mid-years and Jack L. 
(Inquirer) Blackman took the helm. Allendoerfer, Fox and Baker were 
filling up the Xews columns and Ferris, Gummere, and Succop were chasing 
the ads — that is: so far as 193'2 is concerned. 

Jack was a newspaper man at heart and was inspired with the desire 
to maintain the standard set by his illustrious predecessor. Not only must 
the quality of the articles be maintained, but a vigorous editorial policy 
must be pursued — the campus must be reformed. To the first of these 
goals Jack sacrificed his scholastic standing and his health — who could 
ask more of anyone. But he was successful; that spring the paper was 

28

^l__^^>— ^1^ 



termed the hest college paper in the MiddU' Athiiitic States. But as all 
reformers must eventually realize, he found that the eampus was opposed 
to any cliange in the status (pio. 

Jack wrote an editorial — ""Gulp, gul|)" was its name; and so the Bar 
Association got up a petition to get his scalp. They were woefully unsuc- 
cessful, hut they caused many sleepless nights in fifth entry, upstairs on 
the left. The association was not disbanded, but its activities received less 
publicity in the future. 

The next fall Fox and AUendoerfer joined with Art Brinton to dig 
up most of the news, while Jack spread out to greater things and arranged 
a lecture on Journalism and a dinner in honor of William A. White — the 
biggest man to be on the campus in .some time. 

Tn due course of time Jack retired and AUendoerfer became editor 
Avith Fox his right hand man. Speller was business manager and things 
went swimmingly. The alumni were influenced to pay more for their 
subscriptions, the quality of the paper was reduced, and dividends piled 
uj). This state of affairs continued until June when the class almo.st dropped 
out of the picture with the resignations of Fox, AUendoerfer, and Ferris. 

But not for long, for Walt Baker appeared as Sports Editor with 
BiU Wray and Harry Jopson to help him and Succop was advertising 
manager. That fall the boys worried along and with low ads, low news, 
and Barnhurst as editor; but the paper muddled through. 

After mid-years. Baker took over the editorial reins, W'ray the sports 
department, and Carr and Lentz the regular news stuff; and Gage be- 
came business manager. The shortage of copy and finances became 
more and more acute; and so we have the most recent stage of the Xeics' 
development, the tabloid. 

Not only was the form an improvement; but the editors, being 
relieved of the strain of padding each issue, were able to devote their 
attentions to improving the quality of the articles. The customary 
inaccuracies were made, the frequent hammers persisted, but the News 
again won the I. N. A. cup that spring and Lentz got his name in the 
New York Times as editor-in-chief (the News not being the only paper to 
slip occasionally). 

Walt's regime as editor stirred up no campus feuds and no startling 
improvements; but the tabloid appeared every week, our names were 
printed regularly, and we were satisfied. 

And .so in the regular course of events even he retired along with 
BUI Wray, Jopson, and the rest of the crowd to give way to the eager 
editors of the Class of '33. Carr and Lentz became co-editors (a very 
crafty means of dividing both work and responsibility) and Dugdale, 
Bowen, Jones and Bachmann assumed the jobs of preparing the copy.

Gage was still business manager and the ads were still at rock bottom. 

Branching out a bit from its regular field of activity the Xews spon- 
sored a benefit at the Ardmore theatre in an effort to increase its 
diminishing income and induced a number of us to waste an evening at 
the movies. In the middle of April it was host to the I. N. A. and 
provided them with goodly entertainment. 

And so we close, to await the next fad in journalism to arise so that 
the News may add variety to our Monday evenings with another change 
of external form.

"HE fact that the Haverfordian has the longest 
pedigree of any organization on the campus is no sign 
that it has the longest subscription list. However, 
for those who do find its pages most intriguing, it is an object of interest and 
affection. 

Little change has taken place in the form of this historic magazine 
since our arrival in College. The few issues which attracted undivided 
undergraduate attention (the Chap Book numbers — one containing its 
famous last lines) also attracted undivided faculty criticism; and so these 
numbers have gone the way of the Rhinie cakewalk.

On the Imsiness side of the orgaiiizutioii, sonic cliunf^cs were made 
hut soon killed. At one time, this business hoard and that of the News 
nierjied to end eut-throat competition in soliciting advertisements. Hut 
soon the two hoards hecanie tired of eacli other. Once, there was great 
talk about clianging the literary ])iil)lication to an alumni (|uarterly. Both 
the.se ideas arose Junior year, and notiiing permanent came from either. 

Iloag, who joined the class at the beginning of Junior year, Bourne, 
Hunt, and Walton were named to the board Junior year. AUendoerfer 
served as business manager and was followed by Sipple the next fall. 
In February, when Amerman resigned, Hoag and Walton were made 
co-managing editors, on trial for the editorship. W^alton was named 
editor in Ai)ril leaving Iloag as a frequent contributor. 

Jack Watkins did some drawing for the magazine and Parker and 
Miller contributed during Junior and Senior years. In March the Seniors 
withdrew, declared dividends (mind you) and turned the ship over to 
Baker and Sargent. 



DEBATING 

EBATING that debates was inaugurated during 
our Junior year for the first time in the memory of 
the current college generation. And although the 
teams have not been uniformly successful in all their contests, yet the 
debaters have proved themselves worthy of distinguished opponents. 

This year three intercollegiate debates were held, of which two were 
won. Zapp and de Laguna defeated St. Joseph's just before Christmas 
vacation, but Haines and de Laguna lost to Lafayette later in the winter. 
The climax of the intercollegiate season was reached in the victory over 
Harvard on the subject "Resolved, that Christianity has retarded the 
progress of civilization." Zapp, AUendoerfer, and de Laguna upheld the 
affirmative and won despite tlie sour predictions of the English department. 

Junior year the boys were very debatish but not well enough so. 
Seven times they actually took the platform, three scheduled debates 
were cancelled and out of all this we got two glorious victories over 
Oberlin and LTrsinus. Fred Rudge represented the Class of 1932 on 
these memorable occasions, and AUendoerfer helped show our heels to 
Ursinus. But Rudge also fought in contests that we lost as did deLaguna, 
Haines, Zapp and AUendoerfer. Delaware, Lafayette, American U., 
Muhlenburg, and the Swarthmore co-eds dropped us by the wayside. 

Rudge, Zapp and deLaguna went down to defeat at the hands of 
the lowly frosh in a tilt Sophomore year. But, as Rhinies, Rudge, 
deLaguna and Landon Haynes won their interclass contest with good

old 1931. Riidge was awarded the Everett Medal for delivering the best 
speech in that debate. 

Rudge and deLaguna were on the Debating Council Sophomore year 
and Rudge was assistant manager of the team at that time. 



NEWS SERVICE 



FOURTEEN members of our illustrious class answered 
Reisner's call to slave when the News Service Board 
was formed after mid-years in Rhinie year. "Bulge" 
LaDue, "Pee Vee" Lawrence, Young and Oliver Gibbs were elected in 
March and in x\pril, Bijur, Lipsitz, Roberts, and Zapp joined the rest. 

This outfit was originally a part of the News Board with the pur- 
pose of supplying Haverford athletic news to metropolitan newspapers. 
According to the latest figures available, weekly bulletins of such a nature 
are sent to 160 such journals from Boston to Richmond and as far west 
as Chicago. One of the items dispatched by these stalwarts actually 
appeared in a publication in Paris, France. 

The union with the News Board was severed in October of Sophomore 
year and, the following month, Reisner, who had been directing, turned 
the leadership of this independent organization to the aggressive Mr. 
Bijur who promptly signed up Oliver Gibbs as editor.

An item on the front page of the News in February of 1930, headed 
*'Xew.s Service Improves" announced the resignations of Lawrence and 
Lipsitz in the lead. Bill Pusey soon came along to make the board and 
was soon joined by Herb Gaskill. 

"Herbie" Bijur came out with the .statement in the fall of Junior 
year: "I have seen my duty and I have done it." Gibbs moved up and 
Zapp filled Oliver's shoes. 

Zapp moved up another notch to the directorship in the spring 
and Pusey came through as editor, although Gaskill decided that it was 
time for the board to do some improving so he retired to better things. 

By May, even Pusey decided to fall in line with the improvement 
movement by calling his work finished. 

And so the Class of '32 passed out of the picture and let the boys of 
'33 uphold the honor of the College. 

ENGLISH CLUB 

^^^^ /'hat is so rare at Haverford as a club with 
a restricted membership and a waiting li.st. 
The Engli-sh Club is just that, having a member- 
ship limited to thirty and a waiting list about half as large. This club, 




33 



..l^^iM 



born in December of Sophomore year, must now be rated as the most 
lively on the campus. 

The program for Senior year, starting with a lecture on October 14 
by Clayton Hamilton on "Shakespeare's Stage and Ours" has been 
varied and full. Barrett Parker was president from the middle of Junior 
year to the middle of this year and had the help of Bourne, vice-president 
and stage manager, Truex, secretary and Bijur, treasurer and business 
manager. 

The year's most important activity, the presentation of a classical 
play got under way with tryouts in November for parts in the first quarto 
version of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." Plans were laid to present 
the play in Roberts Hall on December 11 and 12. 

This difficult work was presented in a very excellent manner according 
to critics who should know something about it. So well was it received 
that the Hathaway Shakespeare Society of Philadelphia asked the players 
to give another performance at the Belle vue-Stratford Hotel. This was 
given on February 26 before an audience of over four hundred in the 
Bellevue Ballroom. 

Because of this extra performance, the club did not attempt to give 
the customary pair of one-act plays in the spring. The year's activities 
closed with a banquet for club members in May. 

In December of Sophomore year, Irion told Professor Reitzel that 
there was need for an arousal of active interest in English literature. 
These two and six others met and decided that Irion's feelings were 




34

4JL 



widespread and that tlio I'oriiiatioii of an Eiigiisli ("lub "to afford an 
opportunity for the production of classical plays and to foster an active 
interest in English Literature" was the logical move. 

A second meeting was held shortly at which time a constitution 
was approved and the first officers were elected. 1932 placed Irion as 
president and Parker as secretary. Twenty undergraduates attended. 

Inmiediately, plans for the production of a classical play were initiated. 
Christopher Marlowe's "Dr. Faustus" was selected, tryouts were held 
and the play ])resented early in the spring. This was the second time 
that this dranui had been produced in America. Bob Haines, Hunt and 
Parker had good roles while Rudge, Katzenbach, Walton, Scudder, 
Bourne, Irion and Gaskill were in the cast. Irion served on the directing 
staff, and Bijur was business manager. 

Three other activities took place this same year. An informal 
banquet for club members in honor of the Ueitzels was held at Whitehall 
all March 14, Dr. Snyder lectured to the club in April on "Poetry and 
Hypnotism," and readings from "Frogs" by Aristophanes and "King 
Henry IV" by Shakespeare were presented. Professor Post helped with 
the former, while Harry Fields interpreted the role of Falstaff in the latter. 

Junior year found Syd Hunt as president and Bijur serving as treasurer 
and business manager. The membership had reached the assigned 
thirty and all others who wished to join, except graduate students, who 
do not come in under the quota, were put on the waiting list.

Shakespeare's "Hamlet," probably the club's best production, was 
presented in December. Bryn Mawr girls again helped to make this a 
crowning success. Hunt had another lead while Walton, Irion, Parker, 
Bourne, Elkinton, Katzenbach and Miller were all in the cast. The 
Classical Club gave the cast a party after the presentation. On May 11, 
an informal banquet was held at the Haverford Lodge. 

One other event this same spring was the production of two one- 
act plays in the Union on March 13. Morley's "Good Theatre" and 
Lady Gregory's "Rising of the Moon" were the ones chosen. Bourne, 
Irion and Parker took part. 



CAP AND BELLS 

RAMATICS of the Cap and Bells variety seem to 
have had but slight attraction for members of the 
Class of 1932. It has been the business end of the 
club to which they have turned; for here Herb Gaskill has risen to the 
post of vice-president, Bijur to assistant treasurer, and Woodward to 
assistant secretary. 

Job Taylor was the only member of the Class of 1932 to ever play a 
Cap and Bells lead, appearing in the female lead in "Mr. Lazarus" Rhinie 
year. 

Syd Hunt has stuck with the club through thick and thin, playing 
a role in "The Dover Road" of Sophomore year, serving on the Play 
Committee which chose "The Devil's Disciple" as a joint production 



36 



with the Bryn Mawr Varsity PUiyers Junior year, and working as assistant 
stage manager for a time that same year. He appeared again as Tom, 
in liahlerston's "Berkeley Square," this year's joint production. 

Harry Fiehls, John LaDue, Loomis, BaUard and Lipsitz all played 
minor roles in tiie above mentioned "Devil's Disciple" presented at Good- 
hart Hall at Bryn Mawr in December of 1930. Jasper Deeter, famous for 
his work with the Hedgerow Players of ]Moylan, Pa., coached this effort. 

Fields appeared again along with Bourne in a more minor role of the 
1931 Spring Play, Sherw^ood's "Queen's Husband." 

"Tons of Money," a three-act farce written by Will Evans and 
Valentine and given by the Cap and Bells this spring got along without 
any members of this class gracing the cast. Phil Truex of '33 had the lead 
and the female roles were taken by Bryn Mawr girls for the first time in 
the club's history. The play was coached by W. W. Price of Moylan. 



MUSICAL CLUBS 

T IS with great pleasure that the Record next presents 
one of Haverford's more artistic organizations, the 
Musical Clubs. Throughout the past season excellent 
reports concerning their receptions at distant concerts have filtered back to 
campus. And so high expectations were entertained for the Home 
Concert, which were realized in quality if not in quantity. 

The clubs were seriously handicapped this year by a shortage of first 
tenors in the Glee Club, and by the lack of an Instrumental Club coach for 
the first part of the season. Finally Mr. Bentz assumed responsibility for 
both clubs and piloted them through to the end. 

With Giff Foley leading the Glee Club and Longaker in Bijur's 
place in front of the Instrumental Club, the season opened January 13 
at the nurses' home of the Bryn Mawr Hospital. From there they went 
to Harcum School in Bryn Mawr on January 30 and then came the 
week-end at Atlantic City, February 6 and 7. 

The clubs entertained the guests of the Hotel Dennis Friday night 
and those at Haddon Hall Saturday night. WPG, an Atlantic City 
broadcasting station, put then on the air Saturday night from Haddon 
Hall. 

On February 19, the Haverford Musical Clubs joined with those of 
Swarthmore to give a joint concert to help provide the entertainment for 
the biggest social event of the year for the Garnet. This same procedure 
was followed last year, also. 

Then came the big trip to Buck Hill Falls. It was given the utmost 
publicity available as the winter sports party and alumni week-end,

l)cin<r scheduled for P\'l)riiary 26 and 27. Innocent Haverfordians who 
had no connection with the musical clubs were lured to go l)y the j)roniise 
of skiing, sledding, and skating. 

From all reports, the concert i)rovided at the Buck Hill Inn Saturday 
night was quite successful. But the tens and tens of ice skates that {xjor 
unsuspecting Mr. College had carted over a hundred miles ju.st got a 
little rusty. It did snow a little on the morning of February 28 and those 
wiio had stayed over did ski for about an hour. But before that the 
mountain view was only the most dismal thing imaginal)le, no ice, no snow, 
no winter sports. 

The News, in one of its all too frequent sarca.stic moments came out 
l)latantly with the head "Winter Sports Week-end Success Despite Lack 
of Snow, Ice. " Just what is a winter sports week-end without snow and 
ice.^ The Alumni phase of the winter frolic was another howlmg success. 
Seven alumni appeared, including the Dean and Professor Williamson. 

The Home Concert was poorly attended but well received. The 
depression seemed to have had its effect. Holden again tickled the 
chimes of the xylophone, an octet was a big hit, and the Haverfordians, 
the College jazz orchestra, under Longaker's direction entertained with a 
few popular numbers. This is the first year that the Haverfordians 
have played on the regular program. They made a big hit everywhere. 



BAND 

'LIMAXIXG a mildly succes.sful .sea.son with a joint 
appearance with a Swarthmore aggregation at the 
Garnet soccer game in November, the Haverford 
Band closed its third colorful year. 

Early in the fall, Bijur, the director, manager and what have you, 
expressed the fear that there would not be enough pieces available for 
this year. But twenty candidates (the number Herbie sought) did ap- 
pear, but somewhat later than had been expected. The first appear- 
ance of the musicians (?) came October 31 at the Hopkins game. They 
also played for Hamilton and Delaware. 

Sophomore year, when the band first organized, a twenty-two-piece 
outfit appeared at the first game. Uniforms, consisting of white duck 
trousers and brilliant red sweaters were soon procured and have been 
used to date. 

Bijur has been leader the last two years, succeeding George 
Rogers. A youngster named Holden came along in the Class of 1934 
and proved himself worthy of the position of baton twirler.

CLASSICAL CLUB 




A 



CLUB for young intellectuals, the "Walton- 
Miller Club," or the "Tea Club" might all be used 
as appelations for the Classical Club and much 
more appropriately than the prevailing term. The members regard this 
group as a live organization but the non-members never heard of it so 
they can't argue. 

Frank Walton claims that it really is an influential club, but it was 
inactive this last half year because Dr. Lockwood, the deus ex machina, 
was abroad. 

Such master minds as Allendoerfer, Bill Miller, Haines and Crozer 
have been Walton's right hand men. Frank w^as secretary Sophomore 
year and president Senior year. Miller was vice-president both Junior 
and Senior years. Allendoerfer was a member-at-large of the Executive 
Committee Sophomore year while Mr. Crozer held that office Senior year. 

Syd Hunt, our actor, and Herb Gaskill had parts in the club's play, 
"Famulus" by Terence, Sophomore year. The latter was well cast 
as a tipsy gentleman and Hunt had the female lead. Fields, Job 
Taylor and Haines had minor roles. This was the club's sole dramatic 
venture during the last four years. 

An occasional "Bucolic" meeting was held at the sponsor's home in 
Junior year. What went on, we don't talk about. One time this fall. 
Dr. Lockwood told the virile youths about the virtues of book collecting 
and on another occasion, Dr. Richard Mott Gummere, head master of 
Penn Charter, provided some brain nourishment by discoursing on the 
influence of the classicists on the makers of the American Constitution. 

In November of Junior year, the Vergil Bi-Millenium was celebrated 
with great gusto, Dr. Edward Rand of Harvard being the speaker. Jotham 
Johnson lectured to the club in May of the same year. But this year it has 
remained largely at rest waiting for the return of its beloved Petie and his 
wife. 



INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB 

X RESPONSE to a request coming from the Carnegie 
Foundation for International Peace to establish an 
International Relations Club here, Dr. John Good- 
win Herndon, 4>i3K, mustered his troops and had them elect Edward 
Adolph Moos president of his infant organization. "Leetle Billie" Fox 
took the post of secretary-treasurer, thus appeasing the powers that be 
to some extent. 



Jli' j^- 



t< 



^Im 







All this transpired in May of Junior year and at one meeting. The 
same officers have controlled this year. There have lieen two meetings: 
one in November attended by thirty loyal Ilerndonites and the famed 
gentleman himself, and the other in January with ten members witnessing 
a farce produced by the veneraV)le president. 

The club continually announces great plans, but nothing is heard 
after that. Six Saturday Foreign Policy luncheons at the Bellevue- 
Stratford, however, were well followed by this group. Much talk of 
Model Leagues and Model Disarmament conferences never amounted to 
anything, but eight of the members did go to a Model Political Conference 
at Princeton this April. 

Everybody intended to keep up on international affairs through 
the books in the clul) library, discussions, and listening to guest lecturers. 
The large number of books in the collection are almost without a finger- 
print, no discussions were ever held, but two excellent speakers did lecture 
here under the auspices of the club. 

Sir Herbert Ames, former financial secretary of the League of Nations, 
gave a vivid account of the treasurer's difficulties, and Leifur Magnusson, 
director of the Washington Office of the International Labor Organiza- 
tion, discussed the Labor problem in a very worth while manner. 

As a matter of fact, this infant club seems to be destined for a bright 
future. All of its plans have not been carried into effect as yet but may 
in time. Aggressive leadership and sponsorship will work wonders.

CHEMISTRY CLUB 

XDER the able guidance of Dr. Meldrum and the 
presidency of Vin Morgan, the undergraduates 
have been taking an increasing interest in the 
Chemistry Club. Meetings, which have been well attended, have been 
held every other Wednesday during the entire year. 

As the years have gone by the programs have become more and 
more scholarly, and the members have done likewise. In fact it is the 
boast of the Chemistry Club that it is the only active organization on 
the campus which does not resort to refreshments to attract its members 
to meetings. 



ENGINEERING CLUB 

SENIOR year has been the only active one for the 
Engineering Club. The outfit was organized on the 
first of March Rhinie year but little came of it. 
Sophomore year, nothing happened. Junior year was a period of mild 
activity but Senior year has seen more happen than in all three previous 
years together. 

The highlight of the year was the sponsorship fulfilled by the club 
members of the Eighth Annual Student Branch Convention of the Ameri- 
can Institute of Electrical Engineers held at Haverford ^Nlarch ll. One 
hundred and fifty students representing fifteen colleges and universities 
were entertained here at all day meetings. 

Harold Schramm might be given the credit for supplying the club 
with the stimulus that produced such vigorous activity this year. He 
has served as president with Bob Woodward acting as secretary-treasurer. 

An engineer from the Westinghouse works spoke to the club in 
October, W. H. MacCulkmi, ''i'i, gave a talkie demonstration here in 
January, a Mr. Campbell spoke in February on "Water Wheel Installa- 
tion" and many members have addressed the clul) at their bi-weekly 
meetings. 

RADIO CLUB 

F THE Western Union and Postal Telegraph systems 
don't get after our boys for damaging their business, 
all will be well. The Radio Club, through its presi-

constructed. 



CHRISTIAN UNION 

A CASUAL reader of the Haverford Xeirs might 
tliink that this group was one of the most 
- active on the campus. But do not be fooled. 
A few, very few, sly Quakers (or, just Quakers) have utilized the columns 
of the College weekly in a manner befitting a movie star's publicity agent. 

But they have fallen down this year, announcing only an informal 
meeting at Dr. Kelsey's home and two lectures. 

You all know that this club is the result of the abolition of the Y. M. 
C. A. in December of Rhinie year. The "Y" had not been serving its 
purpose, and it gave way to an organization w^hich actually would arouse 
undergraduate interest in religious subjects. 

The two speakers appearing this year both came in one week in 
February, as a matter of fact within two days of each other. Dr. Khalil 
Totah, a noted Palestinian educator, gave an illustrated lecture on his 
native country and Hornell Hart of Bryn Mawr College followed with a 
discourse on "Radical Idealism." 

Going to Y conferences at Buck Hill Falls in February has been 
the thing to do each year. Parker, Potts, Engle, Brinton, Allendoerfer 
and Elkinton have all attended, and Potts and Parker each spent a 
summer peace caravaning. 

The Union sponsored a few Voluntary Quaker Meetings at which 

43 



.^^^^ 



undergraduates only (and very few of them) were present and did 
the speaking. The flare started Sophomore year and died out completely 
Junior vear. 



LIBERAL CLUB 

ISTINXTLY a Class of 1932 project in the last 
two years, the Liberal Club has succeeded in 
bringing a multitude of famous people to the 
campus. The club has lived up to its name in offering lectures on a 
wide range of subjects. 

Frank Walton who was active since Sophomore year served as presi- 
dent last year. The venerable Mr. Irion held that job this year. He was 
also treasurer Junior year when Potts w^as secretary. Fox was vice-presi- 
dent and Scudder was treasurer this year. 

During the first two years that we were here little happened under 
the auspices of this group except lectures by Norman Thomas, the famous 
Socialist and Morris Leeds, the labor expert and president of the Board of 
Managers. Some members managed to attend a Liberal Convention at 
Bryn Mawr in the spring of Sophomore year. 

In the fall of Junior year, Walton secured a certain Mr. Thomson 
who outlined the Costa Rican problems most capably. A symposium 
on the third party was held in the Old Y Room in February, but in March 
things really began to happen. 

Senator Burton K. Wheeler of Montana, Representative Burton 
French of Idaho, Sherwood Eddy, an authority on Soviet Russia, and 
Norman Thomas all addressed Haverford groups in the period from 
March 12-April 13. The year's lecture series closed w^ith a talk by 
Edward L. Stokes on the Bank of International Settlements. 

Hornell Hart, of Bryn ]\Iawr College, lectured to the club this fall 
on "Science and the World Crisis" offering an economic solution. Shortly 
after, Martha Root discussed the place of youth in the world order. 
Byrd Kelso, defense counsel for Tom Mooney in the famous Mooney- 
Billings case spoke early in December. 

The two other lectures delivered so far this year have dealt with the 
situation in the Kentucky mines and the German crisis, the former being 
given by Miss Elizabeth Hawes and the latter by Dr. Herbert Kraus.

"1110 cniiiient II. G. Al. Jojjson, bow-aiui-arrow boy, 
1)11(1 cliaser, reptile hunter has been leading the old 
tiiiK' Nature Club on a steady keel this past year. 
Meetings of a worth while but not sensational nature have been the 
regular thing, and so a membership of about twenty-five has been faithful 

to II. G. :\r. 

The club has .seen wild-lite movies, heard Professor Gummere tell 
of the phenomena of meteors and listened to many .short talks by mem- 
bers. With the financial l)acking of the quiet-working })ut efficient 
Campus Club, many feeding stations for birds have been installed on the 
campus. 




GERMAN CLUB 

^^^y^AY back in the third quarter of Sophomore year, 
Bill Pu.sey and a few others expressed a keen 
desire for the formation of a German Club, 
o.stensibly because of an interest in the good old language. Dr. Kelly, 
being a kindly soul, always willing to do as his boys wished, accepted the 
position of spon.sor. 

Twenty-three wildly enthusiastic undergraduates attended the 
first pep meeting. Harold Schramm, a gridiron hero, was named as 
chairman of the Program and Nominating Committee which soon managed 
to get studious Bill Pusey named as president and the more studious 
Landon Haynes as secretary-treasurer. 

At this second meeting, the group decided that it would be "officially 
known as the Haverford Sprachverein. " A jolly good time was had by 
all the Herrn who spent the time yodel ing the sweet tunes of the Rhine- 
land and making excursions to Alfredo's. Pusey and Dr. Kelly showed 
real leadership in this exercise. 

By this time, the organization and its work had served the purpose 
intended for it. There was a German Club, with worthy officers, which 
had held two meetings. A sojourn to oblivion, equalled only by that 
of the Curriculum Committee, followed. A modest announcement 
appeared in the weekly bleat in April of Junior year to the effect that 
this organization of which so much had been expected had disbanded 
because of lack of interest.

FOOTBALL 

"HE past decade has probably been the most eventful 
in Haverford football history. The Class of 1932 
has seen the rise and fall of the Scarlet and Black 
gridiron fortunes, the pinnacle being reached in the season of lO^O, when 
the Harman warriors went through the entire season with a lone defeat 
handed to them by the Drexel Dragons. Of the thirty-two games played 
during the class's stay on the campus, Haverford elevens have emerged 
victorious in fourteen of these encounters. 

About twenty members of the class responded to Harvey Harman's 
call for candidates in the fall of lO^S. Of these twenty Rhinies, many 
of them experienced high and prep school players, but four secured 
berths on the varsity squad. "Teb" Feroe, "Brud" Dothard, "Dave" 
Bean and "Toots" Fields were the four who remained under Harman's 
tutelage, the remainder being relagated to "Pop" Haddleton's team. 
With such veterans as Tripp, Morris, Collison and Murray forming the 
backbone of the Haverford squad, it is not surprising that only two of 
the class participated in games during the year. 

The lO^S season opened with Ursinus at Collegeville, with about 
98 per cent of the Class of 1932 in attendance, due to the rather forceful

persuasion of I lamia and Betz, cheerleaders. 
The Main I>ini'rs tiiuni|)hed S in a h)osely 
phiyed contest. Harry Fiehls was the first 
fjreenhorn to break into the varsity line-up 
wiicn lie replaced Hicks at tackle. Three more 
victories rollowed for the Haverford eleven, 
Amherst being sulxlued "23-1,'} in probably 
tile most spectacular game of recent years. 
Fields was in the starting line-up as Johns 
Hopkins was defeated l,'5-(). St. John's College 
was the next victim to fall before the onslaught 
of the Harmanmen. Franklin and Marshall 
College, however, broke through the winning 

streak of the locals, to defeat them 20-14 after the Main Liners had 
enjoyed a 10-0 lead at half time. Hamilton and Drexel each took the 
Scarlet and Black into camp in succeeding weeks. Bean broke into both 
of these games replacing "Egg" Morris at tackle. The season closed with 
Delaware, the Haverfordians emerging on the short end of a 19-7 score, 
in what was a very tragic game, the details of which are clearly remembered 
by all who saw the fray. As a result of the work of Betz and Hanna, 
the Class of 1932 provided a rather mediocre band to encourage the 
Haverford cheering section, since this was before the times of the red 
sweatered Haverford musicians. Fields was awarded a letter, and 
"Dave" Bean received his numerals, the only recognition given to mem- 
bers of the Class of 1932. 

In the fall of the Sophomore year, the talent of the class received 
considerably more recognition. Bean and Feroe had left college. No 
less than sixteen members of the class were on the varsity squad. Six 
victories were chalked up in the 1929 season. Fields became a regular 
member of the team, as did Dothard. Schramm, Smith, Baker, and 
Gerenbeck all saw action as did several others of the now famous "Minute 
Men" squad. Ursinus held the Main Liners to a scoreless tie in the 
opening game. Against Susquehanna, however, the line plunging of 
"Egg" Morris, who was transferred to the backfield, began to show 
results, as the Main Liners triumphed 19-0. Trinity, Kenyon, Johns 
Hopkins and Hamilton all fell under the Morris attack, which put "Egg" 
second in individual scoring honors in Eastern colleges, and kept Haver- 
ford in the select list of eight undefeated Eastern teams. Drexel how- 
ever, put skids under the Main Line hopes of going through the season 
undefeated, and, by eliminating Morris from the backfield during the 
first few minutes of play, they topped the locals 7-0. Again, as has 
become almost a tradition now, the Haverford team met Delaware in 



49 



■j^^^%i^ 



the season's finale. The Mud Hens were severely trounced, 20-6 to 
give the Main Liners their sixth victory and to complete the most success- 
ful season since 1916. Letters were awarded to Fields, Smith, Dothard, 
Baker, and Schramm, while Gerenbeck and Foley received numerals. 

Haverford football fortunes received a set-back when Harvey Har- 
man announced that he had accepted an offer to coach at Seewanee 
University, and resigned his position at Haverford. Elwood A. Geiges, 
formerly football mentor at Frankford High School, was appointed as 
Harman's successor. Geiges entered under a great handicap. Most of 
the stars under Harman had graduated and he was faced with a stiff 
schedule and the problem of developing an entirely new team. With 
nine members of the Class of 1931 as a nucleus, Geiges set about his task 
courageously. He had ample backfield material, but lacked linemen. 
From the available men, he moulded a team which, although being 
beaten by Ursinus in the opener, came back to hold Susquehanna to a 
scoreless tie. Members of the Class of 1932 played a big part in forming 
the team. Dothard, in the backfield, was a consistent ground gainer. 
On the line Fields, Schramm and Baker played regularly, while Foley 
was successful as a reserve end. Crozer and Lipsitz also were reserve 
linemen. After gaining a tie with Susquehanna, the Main Liners suc- 
cumbed to the widely heralded passing attack of Kenyon College to a 
6-0 score. In the next game, however, the Scarlet and Black defeated 
Trinity 11-6, the margin of victory being two safeties by Conn and 
Fields' point-after-touchdown. Johns Hopkins administered a severe 
thrashing to the Geigesmen on the following week, defeating them 32-13 
in a night game played at Baltimore. 

Again the Haverford team came back, this time to down Hamilton 
7-0 in a close and hotly contested battle. C. C. N. Y. proved to be too 
strong for the Haverford contingent, winning 40-7 in a one sided-fray, 
played in a deep fog. The annual game with Delaware ended in a 14-7 




50

victory tor tlu' Mud liens, altlioujfli I he hrilliaiit nuiniiig of Dothard gave 
the Haveii'ordiaiis an early advantajie. 

At tiie end of the season, Harry Fiehls was elected to captain the 
eleven in the 19S1 season. Fields, Foley, Dot hard, Haker and Schramm 
were awarded letters, while Crozer and Lipsitz were awarded numerals. 

Last fall (\)ach Geiges was a<fain faced with a problem of forming 
a new team, since nine lettermen had graduated. Fields and Schramm 
were slated for the tackle positions as in 1980, and Baker was certain to 
fill one guard berth. Hansen, a Junior was i)icke<l for the other. At 
the wing posts Foley was the only veteran. Webl) and (ierenbeck, the 
former a halfback converted into an end, filled the positions capably. 
Dotliard, Bat ley and Pleasants, a Sophomore, were the only experienced 
backs to return. 

Fighting a powerful Ursinus team on even terms throughout the 
first half, the inexperienced Haverford eleven bowed to the Bears 24-0 
in the opener. P^ortified by a wealth of reserve material, the CoUege- 
ville team had the advantage over the rapidly tiring Main Liners and 
romped to four touchdowns in the last half. As a result of the contest, 
four of the locals were put on the injured list. Thus it was a handicapped 
Haverford team which journeyed to Selinsgrove the following Saturday 
to play Susquehanna. The weaker up-State eleven handed the Main 
Liners an 18-0 defeat, although the Haverfordians seemed to surpass the 
home team in every phase of the game. 

Returning to Walton Field the following Saturday, the Geiges 
coached eleven gained their first taste of victory by overcoming Wash- 
ington College 27-7. Although the Haverford defense was poor, the 
Main Liners gained an early advantage with two touchdowns by Battey 
in the first quarter. Moos and Pleasants each accounted for one more 
later in the game to clinch the victory for Captain Fields' men. 

Trinity proved to be a stumbling block in the path of the Scarlet 




51

"E Pluribus Unum" 



and Black as they sought a second victory. Playing at Hartford, the 
Connecticut team scored in each of the last three periods. The Haver- 
ford defense was weak, and although the Main Liners twice threatened 
to score, the offense was lacking in driving j)()wer. The game ended with 
a 25-0 victory for the home team. 

A week later, Johns Hopkins rang up a 19-0 victory, scoring all their 
points in the first half. The Blue Jays took advantage of the Haverford 
weakness in pass defense to score via the aerial route early in the game. 
Late in the fray, the locals launched a passing attack that carried them 
within scoring distance, but the Jays thwarted any attempts to tally. 

Dothard led the Haverford attack as Hamilton was again defeated 
18-6 for the second victory of the season. Scoring two touchdowns, and 
handling the team in a capable fashion, the diminutive quarterl)ack was 
the star of the game. Moos and Pleasants contributed much to the 
Haverford offense. Gerenbeck, on the receiving end of a long pass, tallied 
the third touchdown for Haverford in the final period of the game. 

The Haverford team was outclassed by a much heavier C. C. N. Y. 
team in the semi-final game of the 1931 season. The Main Liners were 
unable to gain ground in any fashion, but they did succeed in limiting 
the New Yorkers to two touchdowns. Webb, at end was the star of the 
Haverford defense making several brilliant plays. 

Closing the season with Delaware, the Haverford team received 
the worst setback of the year, 31-0. Although Dothard ran for several 
long gains, the Main Liners seemed unable to penetrate the scoring zone. 
Attempting forward passes netted the Geigesmen nothing, and although 
the team fought all the way, they were outclassed by a much superior team. 

Eight members of the class were awarded letters. Fields, who led the 
gridders, Foley, Baker, Schramm, Webb, Gerenbeck, Dothard, and 
Lipsitz. The lettermen elected Harry Hansen to captain the next 
Haverford team. In this write-up a word of praise must be given to 
John LaDue who managed the team in a capable fashion throughout the 
season.

SOCCER 




KM IJKRS of this class will do in the future much 
the same as previous Haverford alumni have 
done — they will look back with considerable 
l)ride on the performance of the soccer team. We need no short memories 
to forget first the defeats and then only to glory in the illusion of a halo 
of victories as in former years. In intercollegiate competition the hooters 
were undefeated, although tied twice, and the only bad taste of an other- 
wise sweet season was the usual drubbing the Crescent A. C. handed 
them. Coach McPete began to be more optimistic as the schedule 
progressed, smiled oftener, and thought that after all this varsity of his 
was a pretty good team, even though the jayvees showed them up badly 
ever and again. When post-season recapitulation was finished, three 
Haverfordians found places on McPete's ail-American eleven. The 
honored ones were Captain Potts, portsider "Pee Wee" Roberts, and 
sprawling, super-confident goalie, captain-elect Zintl. 

Not often does a college team pass through a hard season, meet a 
number of time-tested rivals, and complete its season undefeated. Yet 
Haverford's record for the fall of 1931 is that enviable, and Jim McPete 
can look back on this year's team with more pride than practically any 
other eleven he has coached in the past nine seasons. Of the nine games 
played, seven were with teams of the Intercollegiate Association, the other 
two being extra-collegiate contests with Merion C. C.'s Maroon team 
and Crescent. 

Of its intercollegiate games, Haverford won five out of seven, the 
other two resulting in a scoreless tie with Penn State and a 1-1 draw with 
Pennsylvania's championship eleven. One of 
the most important factors in the record of 
the past season is the scoring capitulation, 
which shows that the team was powerful 
offensively, as well as strong defensively. In 
the nine games, the dribblers amassed a total 
of twenty-five goals, contrasted with twelve 
compiled by the opposition. 

A comparison between the starting line-up 
of the first game against Lehigh and the last 
against Princeton reveals clearly how McPete 
moved and tested his men in various positions 
before he found the smoothly working com- 




55 



^^#u^^^^^^ 1=^^ 



bination that functioned effectively in the last three games of the season. 
No players except Longaker, Roberts, Zintl and Richie ended the season 
at the position where they began. Captain Potts, mainstay at right 
fullback for the first five games, shifted to left when Stanton made his 
debut as the other fullback in the Penn State deadlock, Hazard, begin- 
ning the season at inside right, where he was a substitute the year before, 
moved to right halfback in the Lafayette game and remained there the 
rest of the fall. Richardson was originally at right half, but when Browne 
advanced to the line, he found a regular berth at center half. Wood- 
ward went the way of many former Haverford fullbacks when he was 
transferred to left halfback after Stanton's arrival. This brief review indi- 
cates the more important changes that occurred during the season. 

Lehigh, in the first game, proved to be weaker opposition than their 
ensuing record showed. It was early in the season and the Brown and 
White lacked sufficient finish in their play to keep the Redwings from 
winning by a one-sided 4-1 count. The following week Lafayette found 
the going on '88 Field as rough as usual as the local team's avalanche 
netted a 7-2 victory. 

Navy was a real test, but even the trials of a bumpy bus ride (Longaker 
felt badly that Macintosh had also weakened to the economy of bus 
transportation) did not prevent the peaceful "Friends" from Haverford 
from beating up the militant Middies. They returned in possession of 
the ball, which signified that they had won again, for the third successive 
time, from the Officers — a precedent which '32 seems to have established. 

Crescent couldn't be reconciled to Haverford's winning ways and 
brushed the Main Liners aside with a brusque 4-2 trouncing, and the 
Merion game concluded a two game interlude from collegiate competi- 
tion when the hooters scored a 5-1 triumph. 

Penn State remained peculiarly invincible as it battled Haverford 
to another tie, extending the number of scoreless deadlocks between the 
two institutions to four out of the past six encounters. 

In the Pennsylvania game grim determination fought on the side of 
the Scarlet and Black when the two rivals met on River Field and bat- 
tled two extra periods without either being able to gain the upper hand. 

Swarthmore played an excellent game in spite of the Redwings* 
2-1 victory in the most spirited contest of the season. Occasional out- 
bursts of the band and sporadic cheering encouraged the players as they 
trampled the soggy surface of the Garnet gridiron. 

As a fitting climax the Scarlet and Black continued its series 
of victories over Princeton in a pre-Thanksgiving Day game and 
equaled the 2-0 win of a year ago. Wlien '32 men were Sophomores^ 
Haverford, for the first time in fourteen years, defeated the Tigers. Since 

56 



then the total scoriii^^ lor tlic three victorious Quaker teams lias mounted 
to five goals tor Ilavert'ord, none tor Princeton. 

Memories of Rhinie year may have become dimmed in the shades 
of the j)ast, but even that long ago some of us were (juick to realize that 
'88 Field was hallowed turf, the domain of Prince McPete where an 
austere varsity kicked the shins of the overworked jayvees. Six members 
of the class figured heavily in the line-up and the only thing that kept 
them oft" the varsity w^as the high toned three-year ruling whicli bars 
freshmen from varsity competition. 

Potts l)ecame a familiar figure as he showed everyl)ody how a full- 
back runs straight into a man without being hurt (or missing the ball). 
And you must remember little Billy Brinton shining at r ght half as one 
of that all-time, all-IIaverford trinity, the all-Brinton halfback line. 

The line was bolstered with four out of five Rhinies. They scored 
nineteen goals between them, and we can still see Gaskill running full 
gallop down the right side of the field waiting for the dramatic moment 
to center the ball (over the crossbar). Anyway, Zuber, Roberts and 
Longaker did the same thing. We still hear them talk of how they 
"used to beat the varsity too." 

Woodward waited two years before he made his first team debut. 
He must have been quite attached to old '22 Field. When Hoag graced 
the college campus again in Junior year he persuaded "Jim" that he was 
hismanfor, say, fullback, or better still, center forward. Nevertheless, "Big 
John" scored the winning goals against Navy, Princeton and Swarthmore. 

Six members of '32 got their coveted insignia. Potts, Roberts, Browne, 
Longaker, Woodward, and Pusey. 

Forget Crescent and think of the fall of '31 as an undefeated season. 
Buses took Rhinies to the games: they all yelled themselves hoarse; 
and the college almost promised the team gold soccer balls. Well, here's 
to '32. Drink her down.

BASKETBALL 



ALTHOUGH the Class of 1932 provided much 
material tor Haverford football and track teams, 
- the present seniors contri})iited but six basket- 
ball players, and of this group, only one has been awarded a varsity letter. 
From this it is evident that little can be said about the court combinations 
with reference to the Class of 1932. 

"Jim" McAvoy was the basketball coach that greeted members of 
the Class of 1932 when they reported in tlie fall and winter of their fresh- 
man year. Four Ilhinies responded to the call for candidates. "Teb" 
Feroe, ""Bart" Gummere, "Jack" Young, and "Brud" Dothard. Of 
this group Feroe showed the most promise, and the college lost a versatile 
athlete when he left college at the end of his Freshman year. Young 
also left college after his Sophomore year. Thus only Gummere and 
Dothard were left to the squad. Gimimere saw action as a reserve in 
his Junior year, and was named captain by the team members in the fall 
of his Senior year, after the failure of Jack Simons, '33, captain-elect, 
to return to college. 

The squad was re-enforced with the return of "Lank" Browne, and he 
and the "Dote "saw considerable service as members of the Jayvee quintet 
and varsity sub.stitutes. Gummere, the only letterman in the class, 
received his award in his Senior year. 

During the one year that McAvoy coached here, the quintet, led 
by "Jim" Downward, with such stars as "Duke" Mawhinney, "Hen" 
Supplee, and "Dave" Bevan amas.sed two victories in ten games. The.se 
two victories, however, were over Delaware and Swarthmore, so that the 
season was not a total failure. 

In 1929, Sam Taylor replaced McAvoy 
as basketball mentor with almost a completely 
new team succeeded in winning five games of 
a thirteen game .schedule. The team, captained 
by "Irish" I>ogan, included Reisner, Penny- 
packer, Katz, Edgar, and "Al" Supplee. 
Ursinus, Drexel, Stevens, Susquehanna, and 
Swarthmore were the victims of this Taylor 
coached aggregation. The Garnet were suc- 
cumbed 23-19 in a ])itter .struggle in the local 
gymnasium. 

With almost the identical team. Jack 
Simons having replaced "Al" Supplee, the 




59 



.^I^^^^ 



Haverford quintet enjoyed its most successful season in recent years in 
1930-1931. "Herb" Reisner captained the team, which won nearly 
half its games, emerging victorious in six of the fourteen carded strug- 
gles. The victories were chalked up over Gallaudet, Wesleyan, Textile, 
Moravian, Amherst and Delaware. The game with Swarthmore resulted 
in a 32-29 win for the Garnet, although the outcome of the game was in 
doubt until the final whistle blew. 

Sam Taylor had a mighty hard job on his hands when basketball 
practice started last fall. Of the group that reported, there was not a 
single letterman, and only three winners of numerals. Thus it was 
necessary to build up an entirely new team. Harman, a freshman re- 
ceived a regular post at center, while Flaccus, Monsarrat and Scarborough 
performed at guard. Gummere and Scattergood won regular positions 
as forwards. On the list of reserves, Dothard and A. Singer were the 
outstanding upperclassmen, while a group of four freshmen completed the 
squad. Button, Foerster, Patten, and Azpell. The season opened with 
Princeton in Tigertown. The Orange emerged on the long end of a 30-11 
score, although the Main Liners played a careful guarding game. South 
Jersey Law School, Dickinson, Lehigh, and Stevens overcame the Scarlet 
and Black in succession. The Haverford team seemed to lack ability 
to score from the field. The next game against P. M. C. resulted in 
one of the best exhibitions of floor work seen on the Haverford court during 
the season. iVlthough Captain Gummere's men were defeated 32-31, 
the game showed that the team had potentialities. Li the next three 
games, the Taylormen failed to seriously threaten. Amherst, Navy and 
Susquehanna, chalked up successive triumphs over the locals. Against 
Drexel, however, the fighting Haverford spirit again came to the fore, 
and the Dragons were limited to a 35-33 victory, with the outcome of 
the game continually in doubt. Only two victories were won, the first 
over Moravian by a 28-21 score, and the second over Philadelphia Textile 
by a 40-21 score. 

In the most-looked-forward to game of the season, Harvard easily 
triumphed 32-19 over the Haverfordians. The Crimson quintet had 
diflBculty getting started, however, and the Main Liners led most of the 
first period. Delaware sent the Scarlet and Black to defeat 36-19 in the 
semi-final although the locals fought doggedly until the finish. 

For the second consecutive year, the Swarthmore five downed the 
Haverford team, this time 46-27. Although the outcome of the game was 
never in doubt, the team, encouraged by Captain Gummere, staged a 
brilliant rally which carried the Haverfordians within eight points of the 
Garnet. "Hank" Scattergood led the team in scoring, with "Bart" 
Gummere a close second.

WRESTLING 

"HIS year witnessed the introduction of wrestling to 
the field of organized Haverford sports, after several 
seasons of priming a group of prospective grapplers 
through local wrestling tournaments and unofficial competition with other 
college teams. To Harry Fields and "Giff" Foley, adept performers on 
the mat, belongs a large part of the credit due for this recent athletic add- 
ition. To their efforts were added those of Coach Geiges, with whose help 
a capable team was evolved and exhibition meets arranged. Among the 
colleges thus met were Ursinus, Gettysburg, and Temple. In their first 
encounter a year ago, the Grapplers creditably tied an experienced Ursinus 
team, while this season victory barely eluded their grasp. In facing 
Temple, Haverford met a strong and skilled aggregation. The resulting 
score, 30-25, favoring the Owls, speaks for itself; Haverford staged a 
brilliant exhibition and lost by but one fall. 

Both Fields and Foley have been consistent victors and each has been 
entered in the National Collegiate Wrestling Championships. Fields was 
runner-up in the heavyweight class last year. Job Taylor and Bill Hard- 
ham also showed up well in their encounters this season, Taylor having 
defeated each of his opponents at Ursinus and Temple. Watkins, Stokes, 
Moos, Blanc-Roos, Rhoads, Conn, Barrett, Hires, and C. G. Smith, all 
performed well in competition indicating that wrestling at Haverford bids 
fair to having a sound and successful career.

TRACK 



VJ 





HEHE\'ER tlie praises of Ilaverford teams are 
sung, there will always be a place for the tales of 
"Pop" Iladdletou's track teams. In the last 
decade, under the tutelage of "Pop", Haverford lias become known far 
and wide for the strength of its tracksters. It is 
significant that in the four years the Class of 
19'3'-2 has been here, the track team has lost but 
five dual meets, and two of those defeats 
have })een suffered this year. 

^Vith the advent of spring in l!)^!), about 
thirty members of the present senior class 
reported for the track team. They had their 
own captain, "Wally" Ayres, but due to scho- 
la.stic difficulties, George Gerenbeck was 
acting leader. In that year two members of the 
class were awarded letters, George Gerenbeck 
and Harry Fields being the first year men to 
achieve that distinction. "Giff" Foley was 
awarded numerals. Ferris also won several points for the team. 

In 1930 the Haverford cindermen won four of tiieir five scheduled 
meets, losing only to William and Mary. Swarthmore was downed in one 
of the closest meets in the history of track, Q'i}/i to 61%. Six members of 
the Class of 1932 received the varsity "H", Gerenbeck, Gaskill, Foley, 
Ayres, Fields and Katzenbach being thus honored. Ferris and Schramm 
w ere awarded nvmierals. 

Last season the tracksters continued in their winning ways, losing only 
to William and Mary and Lehigh. Two records were broken, the half 
mile by "Bob" Edgar and the pole vault by "Giff" F'oley. Gerenbeck, 
Fields, Foley, and Dothard were the members of the class to receive letters, 
while Bailey, Baker, Jopson and Hoag were recipients of numerals. George 
Gerenbeck was elected as captain of the team for 1932. 

Since it is necessary for the printers to start work on this book, it is 
impossible to give a complete summary of the 1932 season. However, after 
losing the opening meet to Lehigh, 71-55; the Haddletonmen came back 
to trounce Dickinson 783^3 to 47^^ on Alumni Day. The following Friday, 
Johns Hopkins nosed out the locals 673^^ to 5S%. Meets are scheduled 
with Swarthmore, Delaware and St. Joseph's which should be tough for the 
Main Liners. 

The Haverford team is well-provided with sprint men this year. 
Captain Gerenbeck has been victorious in both his starts in the 100-yard 



63 



dash. Gage and Bancroft have also won several places in the century. 
These same three men have accounted for many points in the '2'20-yard dash, 
Gerenbeck and Gage having each unofficially equalled the Haverford 
record of 22 seconds for the furlong. 

Fields, Schramm, and Sargent are the leading contenders in the shot 
and discus, Vance, Brinton and Bailey in the two mile have placed first, 
second and third in two of the meets so far this spring, and should secure 
many more points before the end of the season. A dark horse, in the 
person of Rhinie Mechling, has greatly improved Haverford's position in 
the half-mile event. Although he has won ]:»ut one race, he has finished 
second in two fast halves. 

"Gif" Foley has cleared 11 feet, 6 inches in the pole vault so far this 
season, and should again equal his record of 12 feet, 2}^ inches which he 
established last spring. Potts and Richardson have .showed marked im- 
provement in the high jump, Richardson having cleared 5 feet, 10 inches 
against Dickinson. In the one-mile run, Roger Scattergood and Bodine 
are the leading contenders, while Baker, Dothard and Hotz are the main- 
stays of the trackmen in the javelin throw. In the high hurdles, Van 
Denbergh, Zintl, and Jopson, represent the Main Liners, while "Jim" 
Andrews and Jopson are the low hurdlers. 

Captain Gerenbeck is Haverford's best quarter-miler in addition to 
being a sprinter. W. W. Smith has placed in two of the three meets in this 
race. The Scarlet and Black's chances in the broad jump have been greatly 
improved by ''Chap" Brown, another freshman, who has jumped 21 feet, 
3 inches. Sargent and Eshleman are also point-getters in that event. 

While at Haverford, the Class of 1932 has seen their Alma Mater 
make very respectable showings in the annual M. A. S. C. A. A. meet, held 
on Walton Field. In 1929, the local cindermeu won; in 1930, tied for 
second, Lafayette winning: and last year finished in fifth place. The meet 
this year is to be held at Allentown, Muhlenberg playing the role of host.

BASEBALL 



j^^Mgl^

won exactly five of it; 




HAT a whale of a tiiflerence just three years 

make. For instance, just look at the Ilavert'ord 

nines 'way back in 19''29. The team in that year 

twelve games, a record infinitely better than the 

one being made this spring, for to date the })all 

club has not only failed to win a game, but has 

compiled a record of making more errors than 

runs. 

The Class of 1932 can not be blamed too 
severely, for when Oscar looked over the 
list of applicants for admission, he must have 
forgotten about the basel)all team. Ilhinie 
year found only four or five ambitious freshmen 
gamboling about on the green of '22 field. 
Three members of the class achieved the dis- 
tinction of playing on the team for which 
''Hen" Supplee pitched. Rice "Pansy" 
Longaker became regular first baseman, a posi- 
tion which he has held ever since, except for last year when he occasionally 
deserted the initial sack to toe the mound and toss up a few balls for the 
opposition to hit. "Teb" PVroe won a place at shortstop, and he covered 
the position too capably for the powers in Roberts, for he was soon removed 
from the rolls of the college. "Bob" Zuber played occasionally in his 
Rhinie year, and regularly in his second year at third base, but in his 
sophomore year, he also was too good a ball player for a Haverfordian, so 
he also was forced to leave college. 

In 1930 the Haverford team crashed through with a stupendous total 
of two victories in 14 starts. "Hen" Supplee, the best pitcher seen on a 
local team in many a moon, left college to join Connie Mack and his famous 
A's, leaving mound duty to his brother 
"Al". "Al" did a good job, but a 
ball team needs more than a pitcher. 
The two victories were at the expense 
of Moravian and Osteopathy. The 
nine came within one run of beating 
Dartmouth, until the green called 
upon their ace hurler, Millykangas, who 
regularly sent the Haverford batsmen 
down in one, two, three order for the 
remainder of the game. Swarthmore only beat the Scarlet and Black twice.

but that was ()iil.\' hccausf tlio Quaker iustitutions met hut twice. "IJoh" 
Zuber and l/ougakcr wore mainstays of the team, and '' liart " (lunimere 
joined tlie chih to f.;i\e the Chiss of '3''2 tliree representatives. All three won 
letters. 

Last year, but seven games were played by the locals. Osteopathy 
ajjain provided the Main Liners with their victory, but since the game 
with ^loravian was washed out, we were unable to stretch the total to two. 
Manager Saint had arranged two games with Osteopathy, l)ut the docs 
downed the Scarlet and Hlack in the second, (iumniere and Longaker still 
stuck with the clul), but underclassmen predominated in the line-up. 
Swarthmore won tw o games again, sending a total of 24 runs across the 
])late in the two frays. Army had little difficulty in downing the Scarlet 
and Black, "^l 1 on Pre-Centenary day, when the whole Haverford system 
of education was on display. 

This spring Manager Oliver " Vas" Gibbs arranged a schedule of some 
dozen games. Of course he included Moravian and Osteopathy. But in 
addition to this, he arranged an early season game with Elizabethtown in 
hopes that we might win three games. Gibbs' hopes received a severe 
setback when the newcomer to the schedule toppled the locals, 8-4, in the 
opening game. Muhlenberg had little trouble winning, 16-4. On the 
following Wednesday, the little Quakers managed to hold Lafayette to an 
8-0 victory. On Alumni day, the contest with Moravian ended 19-14 
favoring the up-staters in a weird game. 

The following week, an inspired Haverford team held Delaware to a 
2-1 score antl almost emerged victorious, but the Army tallied 15 runs to 
win 15-3, in a "very closely contested battle" at West Point. Gibbs' 
last hopes for victory were blasted on May 3 when Osteopathy pulled a 
20-6 victory over the eyes of Captain Gummere's men and sent them back 
out the Main Line looking for some "Ful-Vue" glasses (not an advertise- 
ment.) 

Besides Captain Gummere, this year's team is composed of Tripp and 
Nicholson, pitchers; Richie, catcher; Longaker, first base; Wilson, short- 
stop; Worcester, third base, and Rice, Harman, and Harjes, as fielders. 
Six games remain on the schedule, including two w^ith Swarthmore. So far, 
the opposition has scored 88 runs, but then the season was yet young when 
this went to press. 

Seriously, however, we must give a word of praise to the spirit which 
members of the team have manifested in the face of such bitter defeats. 
It is mighty hard to support and work for a losing team. Every Haver- 
fordian is pulling for the nine and hoping that before long, the team will 
play another game as they played against the vastly superior Delaw are 
outfit.

TENNIS 

BKFORK the nirrent season l)effaii any one who gave 
a casual tli(tn<iht of the tennis situation .'.\t College 
l)rol»al)ly turned to something else in despair, or 
reflected on last year "When we had Gray and Harnhurst ". Ilojies sank 
lowest hack in March when Roberts suddenly 
became ill with appendicitis and left Captain 
Ferris, supported by Lentz, Monsarrat and 
Flaccus, as the only sure-fire nucleus of a new 
team. 

Tiie Class of '8'2 was not particularly 
strong in furnishing material for the team. 
"Pee Wee" Roberts got the first recognition when 
he rated numerals in sophomore year. Ferris, a 
former track man, decided on tennis for his 
spring exercise; .so as a junior he came out, made 
the team, and became captain in the po.st- 
season elections. 

After winning seven and losing five team 
matches last season, the team was hardly expected to equal that perform- 
ance this year. But at the time of this writing (May 1), it has registered 
some surprising victories which have put at rest the worries which had hung 
over the hopes of all those concerned. 

Penn sent Haverford off to an inauspicious opening when its Red and 
Blue netmen blanked our team, 9-0. That was a rather unkind .shock, 
but it seems to have done much good — for since then they have turned in a 
streak of six victories in eight starts. 

Mo.st outstanding of these triumphs is the defeat of Swarthmore, some- 
thing that had not been accomplished since 1916, or, just sixteen years ago. 
To say the least, it was a distinct surprise when the team got back just in 
time for dinner and announced that they had taken seven out of the nine 
matches. That 7-2 victory is the most unusual thing that has happened 
in local .sports in a long time. 

The next day, April '23, they invaded Rutgers, and Coach Brammall's 
men took over the New Brunswick players by a narrow 5 4 margin. 

Dickinson and St. Joseph's were also among the defeated, each losing 
by a single point. With Osteopathy things went the same way. Hamilton 
invaded the home courts with a four-man team led by ^lurphy, sixteenth 
player in National ranking, but the Main Liners came through to win, 4-2. 
Johns Hopkins put an abrupt end to this winning streak when they halted 
the return, 7-2. 

Temple al.so downed the locals, 5-4. Seven matches remain on the 
schedule.

GOLF 

WEliFOliD'S most recent officially recognized 
sport is one which gives the College that breath of 
country club atmosphere of which most institutions 
of iiiglier learning like to boast. After two years of unofficial putting-around, 
a period during which our Main Line links 
aspirants pooled their ambitions to demonstrate 

how really serious this mitldle-aged man's _ . 

recreation coidd be taken, the Executive 
Athletic Council ])ersuaded the higher authori- 
ties in Rot)erts Hall to put golf on the list of 
approved sports. 

It was mainly through the individual 
efforts of Kendall Read, ex-'32, that golf 
received its official ranking in the spring of 
1930. although no awards were made! 

Merion Cricket Club graciously cooperated 
with the College and allowed our golfers to 
u.se their s])lendid course both for practice and 
regular matches. 

After six practice matches when '32 were sophomores, our junior year 
saw the first schedule carried to a finish which credited Haverford with four 
victories and an equal number of defeats. 

This year the team is turning in about the same type of performance 
as before. Of the four matches played so far this spring the golfers have lost 
two nineteen-hole tiflfs with William and Mary, and Delaware. The other 
two encounters, both with St. Joseph's, resulted in one-sided victories 

Early in April Captain White and his men took over St. Joe to the 
encouraging count of 8-1. But after this noble beginning the William and 
Mary linskmen came here and got away with an exciting match which was 
more closely contested than the 4-2 score would indicate. Delaware's 
Blue Hens continued to be the nemesis they were last year and handed the 
local golfers a close defeat by a 5-4 margin in a nip-and-tuck affair that 
hung fire until the nineteenth hole of the final match. After that St. 
Joseph's returned and this time was shut out 9-0. 

The matches yet to be played include a trip to the Army at West 
Point, Lehigh at Bethlehem, Swarthmore at Swarthmore, a return meet- 
ing with Delaware, and the wind-up with Lafayette. 

Of last year's team four members remained to perform this spring. 
White, Sipple, Andrews and Sordon are the veterans who have been ably 
supported by Hemphill, '33, and Dutton, '35, newcomers to the squad.

CRICKET 



T! 




"HE "l)ally old" j^anie of cricket seems to he slowly 
losiiifr its grip on the students of Haverford College. 
^^'c are very sad to have to report this, since, for 
many years, the Main Line institution has had the one remaining collegiate 
cricket team in the I nited States. 

In ID-il), the XI won four of the nine 
scheduled contests, losing twice to the alumni. 
The only member of the Class of 193'2 who 
played regularly that year was "Tom" Potts. 
In 1930 the team was not so successful, winning 
but three of eight starts. On the Canadian 
trip, which was taken in June of that year, the 
Scarlet and Black emerged victorious in one of 
the five matches, and that, by a three-point 
margin. Again Potts was '32's only representa- 
tive, receiving his numerals. 

Last spring, the cricket team, captained 
by "Phil" Shaw, broke even, winning three of 

the six encounters. John H. Hoag, Esq., who had returned to college in 
the Class of 193'-2 in September, was a valuable addition to the XI. He was 
second to "Phil" Shaw in batting, with an average of 37.33 for the year. 
At the end of the season, Hoag was elected captain and was awarded the 
cricket "H". Potts again received numerals. Hoag won the Improve- 
ment Bat, Potts the prize Fielding Belt for the 1931 season. 

This year the team is sadly depleted by the loss of many of last year's 
stars. With Potts and Hoag forming a nucleus, reinforced by Irion and 
Wertime, Coach Godsell is striving vainly to develop a winning combina- 
tion. So far, the XI has failed to register a single victory. The Viscose 
Cricket Club downed the locals 97-38 in the opener, with Potts, Hoag and 
"Tom" Brown, leaders for Haverford, both offensively and defen.sively. 
The General Electric cricket club administered a severe trouncing, 232-35 
in the other match to date. Hoag again led the Haverford batters, scoring 
7 runs. Several more matches have been scheduled for the cricketeers by 
Manager F. R. Walton, including the annual battle with the alumni. Just 
what showing the team will make is unknown. That interest is not as high 
in the .sport as it was five years ago, is evident from the fact that but seven- 
teen men reported for berths on the eleven this spring.

Born 1911 

Entered from Germantown High School in 
lO^S. 

LJERE, ladies and gentlemen, let us intro- 
duce to you exhibit "A", one of the 
more chameleon-like specimens in the collec- 
tion. The keynote of Bob's college career 
has been change, and it has been all his 
friends could do to keep up with the latest 
permutations and combinations of his brain 
cells. To begin with, he arrived here with 
his mind definitely made up regarding the 
"one and only." Thus far he has shifted 
only some four or five times. 

Furthermore, he has never lived two years 
in the same dorm. He started out in Merion, 
where, under the expert tutelage of Smitty 
and Succop, he soon became one of our most 
expert cigarette bummers. But the effort of 
commuting from the suburbs was too much 



for him, so the following year he followed 
Woodward to South, where thanks to Bob 
there reigned a continual uproar. However, 
climbing three flights of stairs eventually 
began to pall on him, and Junior year found 
him taking up residence in the Fifth Entry 
with Schramm and Read. This year, after 
working all spring to get into new Lloyd, he 
fooled us and became a Day Student, burn- 
ing up the roads from here to Chestwester in 
his beloved "Bertha". 

After pursuing his studies for some time 
as an alleged Pre-Median, he was eventu- 
ally converted to the truth, and became an 
ardent disciple of Dr. Dunn. The last we 
heard his great ambition was to go in search 
of snakes in the far-off isles of the South 
Seas. Well, as we French have it, chacun a 
son gold. 

No picture of Bob would be complete 
without mention of his trombone — but then, 
perhaps that has already been allowed to 
speak quite sufficiently for itself. We would 
only suggest that he be sure to take it along 
to the South Seas — it might come in handy.

Kansas City, Mo. 
Born 1911 

Entered from Soutliwost 111^1' Scliool in 1928. 

\WE NOW present that maestro of old- 
time songs, Carl B. (Kansas City) 
Allendoerfer. The thunderous rolling ashcans 
have reached the l)ottom steps and are 
merely rumbling in the first floor hall. Clear 
and strong rises Carl's plaintive Sircet A-a- 
adeline three notes off key, followed by a 
program of rollicking songs my mother never 
taught me. The unseen audience feels the 
haunting beauty of these melodies reechoing 
in their innermost souls and in clamorous 
welcome go ofl" to collect water to greet their 
hero. 

Allengriper, Allenbiter, or Abadaba, as he 
was affectionately known by his News minions 
has ever been a big man on the campus. 
His averages, list of activities and voice all 
have this largeness, and only in track has It 
been a handicap to him. The only weakness 
in his otherwise so perfect nature is a periodi- 
cal and irresistible desire to go on a bender, 
and an Allendoerfer bender generally means 
that peace and quiet fold up their tents like 
the Arabs, and, amid the raucous screams of 
their desecrator, as silently steal away. 

His fame rests largely on his leadership of 
the Rhinie Revolt. Never will we forget the 





time that he got up and told Bevan and a few 
of his diabolical cohorts the plain facts of life 
and then walked out in high dudgeon with our 
entire class at his heels. The fact that the 
revolt collapsed without any noticeable 
concession to our high principles is one of 
Carl's numerous claims to the presidency of 
the Hammer Club. 

But Carl's greatest achievement is that he 
roomed two whole years with Bill Miller. 
We find it difficult to understand why Bill's 
delicate and classical nature was not offended 
at a spade being called all sorts of unprint- 
able things.

HADDONFIELD, X. J. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Westtown School in l!)'-28 

/^ R. " IS the reserved and dignified mem- 
ber of the class, who is known only by a 
select few. To be sure to all of us he is the 
thoughtful and considerate guy who is always 
lending a nickel for a phone call, or pressing 
our pants on his own private ironing board 
for no extra charge. But to those fortunate 
individuals of the inner circle, Dick expands 
into a being of far wider, more varied, and 
greater interests and possibilities than those 
of the reserved bashful student. He has 
either sublimated ("almost", adds his room- 
mate) a wild cowboy nature, which unfortu- 
nately will still burst out sporadically in 
demonstrations of appalling excess of energy, 
or else he is a relative of Mr. Stevenson's 
character of double personality. 



This dual life is kept concealed as far as 
possible, but vague rumors of dissipated 
week-ends, of midnight rides on motorcycles, 
or of record-breaking trips in fast automobiles 
occasionally get out only to be quickly hushed 
up and never allowed to circulate on the 
campus. Xo one could ever guess that there 
could be any truth in the above statements 
from looking at him. Only a close glance will 
show the lines under those weary eyes on 
Monday or Tuesday. Perhaps that is why he 
wears his glasses more than any other time. 

"G. R. " is the guiding spirit of that noble 
organization, the Radio Club, and passes 
many a weary and patient hour in teaching 
miserable, offending, perverted Rhinies and 
Sophs how to pass the code test. 

Last but not least it is almost a phe- 
nomenon that Dick seemed to keep his sweet 
personality intact and unharmed after 
rooming with that super-smoothie Gaskill. 
However, the degrading influence of the 
Parker-Engle combination has recently, we 
fear, been nurturing the insidious seed of evil 
that is in us all.

HOWLAM) IIASKKI.I, |{.\II,KV 
89 Beacon Street 

HYDE I'ARK, MASS. 

Born 1912 

Entered From Hyde Park llifili Seliool in 
ID'iS. 

LJM ! " said Osear tlioiiglitt'ully as lie j)erused 
the list of prospective members of the 
Class of IfiiVZ. And out of that sage comment 
it came to pass that a Mr. Bailey of Hyde 
Park (Boston) and a Mr. Fox of Hyde Park 
(Chicago) roomed together in Center Barclay, 
second floor. Howland, early in his college 
career, established his proficiency in two 
lines, mathematics and hell-raising. Ask 
Howland why he dictated his exams to a 
stenographer at the end of freshman year. He 
may tell you it was the result of a bad case of 
writer's cramp. Well, it wasn't. It was the 
result of some good, clean fun, and we say 
clean because its results were cleansing — it 
was a water fight. 

The scene changes. It is sophomore year. 
Howland is progressing. He is now on the 
third floor of Center Barclay. But fear not — 
here is a boy who is fighting his way up, one 
who will reach the top. New proficiencies are 
demonstrated in science and track, but these 
are as nothing. We are interested in the 
Alger-like rise of our young man to the 
heights. 

And sure enough, junior year finds him in 





Barclay Tower, and the end is in sight though 
the crowning play is yet to come. Howland 
has cast his lot with the Quakers, for the 
Tower is a notorious Quaker stronghold, 
than which there can be no stronger. Finally 
he consents to run as the Quaker candidate 
for class vice-president, and is elected. 

It is January 10, 1932. The first and only 
snow of the season has just fallen. And 
where is Howland.' He has reached the top. 
He is on the roof of Center Barclay, throwing

W ALTER CONRAD BAKER 

308 W. School Lane 

GERMANTOWN, PHILADELPHIA, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from William Penn Charter School in 
1928. 

piCTURE, oh gentle reader, a tall, slender 
youth with expression serious and legs of 
gigantic length. Well, that is Jopson, Walt's 
roommate. Baker is fairly tall, but there 
the resemblance ceases. Indeed one of the 
first things one remarks about Walt is that 
sweet gentle smile which plays so delicately 
around the corners of his mouth. 

Baker is a very persuasive person. One 
has only to observe the irresistible manner in 
which he cajoles a second, third, and fourth 
for a half-hour bridge game to realize what 
success he has had with women. And you 
can count on his subtle wit to make all the 
obvious puns, either a split second before, or 
in unison with Gaskill. 

Walter was a pure innocent Quaker lad 
when he entered Haverford. He is still a 



Quaker, but three years on the News board 
have had the inevitable effect on his inno- 
cence. Every action, however, has its reac- 
tion, and under Walt's guidance the board's 
turbulences were calmed and another topic 
for midnight bull sessions passed into 
oblivion. His real inner nature was not 
revealed until he joined the Customs Com- 
mittee to which he dedicated his heart and 
soul, also the subtlety of a fruitful and 
diabolical mind to the thinking up of the 
most ludicrous punishments for naughty 
Rhinies. 

An interesting sight is that of Walt sitting 
in one of those exquisitely comfortable chairs 
in the Library in what has become the 
Baker-Pusey Alcove, behind an enormous pile 
of enormous books of various shades and 
hues, with brown predominating. Here he 
can be found almost every morning, when he 
is not conferring with the Baron, nor attend- 
ing an occasional class, a nuisance which he 
may eliminate by taking a course in Arche- 
ology along with the Italian.

HYDE WIllTCO.MH HALLAUI^ 
227 N. Bowman Avenue 

MKRIOV, PA. 

Born 1909 

Entered from Lower Morion lligli School in 
1928. 

/^NE need only sing "Way Down, Bingo 
Farm," to get an idea of where the 
"Hyke's" real interest lies. Anyone who has 
failed to hear him tell ahoiit the way they kill 
pigs down on the plantation in Delaware, has 
missed the biggest part of that broad educa- 
tion which one attains in the process of 
attending our noble institution. 

Not only is Hyde an authority on rural 
life and its chores, but he is also an engineer 
of no mean repute. Who has not seen him, 
his slip-stick under his arm, ambling amiably 
across the campus toward Hilles Lab? At 
his command, motors whir and generators 
hum. Nonchalantly, he throws enormous 
switches, and bravely holds his ground, while 
the timid and uninitiated beat hasty retreat 
from those grinding, pounding, roaring 
giants! 

"But "Hyke's" mechanical genius is not 
all confined to the laboratory. Give him a 





i^ yj^ 



barrel of automobile parts and watch him 
construct a car what is a car. Perhaps it 
will turn out to be a Ford or then again 
(who knows.^j it may be a Packard twin 
(not an advertisement); it only depends on 
the t\-pe of hubcap you give him. 

Little need be said about his pugilistic 
tendencies. The boys of Eighth Entry have 
aptly christened him "One Punch" Ballard 
as the result of a fistic encounter early last 
Fall. However, after all's said and done, 
"Hyke" is really a sheep in wolfs clothing. 

Hyde's activities in the Liberal Arts may 
be summed up by mentioning his interest in 
football which has led him to the job of 
center on our class team, a talent for baseball 
which put him up with the big boys of swat 
right off, and lastly a desire to be a good 
Contract player, which he has been realizing 
of late.

HERBERT BIJUR 
28 West 73rd Street 

NEW YORK CITY, N. Y. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Horace Mann School in 1928 

The man who saw "Monkey Business" 
seven times; the man who roomed with 
Cappy Bourne two years running; the man 
who remained faithful to Bryn Mawr (fem. 
sing.) for three years; the disciple of Whit- 
man, modern art and Be-kind-to-your-Feet 
shoes. What a man! 

Herb spent the major portion of his first 
two years in a vain efiFort to pass Dynamics — 
the Mystery Math course. But the Age of 
Miracles is not yet passed. For while Herbie 
was spending the following summer in Ger- 
many, his marks were being subjected to a 
strange metamorphosis — perhaps aided by 
the aroma of Flor de Manuels.' — and Herb 
returned in September to find himself credited 
with an 85. 



84 



The chiefest function of his existence was 
to be the college Organizer par excellence. 
Rhinie year he and Otto Reisner, after 
months of toil, realized their brain child, the 
Xew.t Service. Then came the Band, followed 
by the brilliant success of the English Club, 
which, with the triple aid of Herbie's finan- 
cial genius, Willy Reitzel's directorial 
abilities, and Wally Scudder's car, made the 
Cap and Bells rear its haughty head and 
sneer defiance at this "upstart fly-by-night". 

From what has just been said one might 
get the idea that Herb is the most methodical 
and consi-stent of persons. But not so. One 
has only to watch him pack a suitcase, get 
dressed for a dance, hunt for mislaid books, 
or better still, to look at his room (the bane of 
Walton's existence) on a Sunday morning. 
All illusions are soon dispelled. 

But the real tragedy of Herb's career is 
this — he has the soul of a poet and the mind 
of an economist, and after four years of 
internal debate, he is still doubtful which is 
the real Bijur.

If you are looking for the man, do not look

nor in the office of our Will (well, he may get 
there yet), but rather in his own room with 
Boswell's Life of Johnson (incredible though 
it may seem, not being read for a course) or 
on the stage of Roberts Hall fiddling around 
with props. 

For two years he and Bijur had the same 
dormitory address; but that was as far as the 
union extended. If you wanted to find 
Frank, the quickest way was to stand in the 
middle of the campus shouting, "Bijur,"

and to run rapidly in the direction opposite to 
the answering bellow. You couldn't miss him 
that way. 

His third year Frank went into a tri-class 
combination which was one of the strangest 
on record. Shippen and Clough M-ere the 
other two members. The room bull-sessions 
featuring Shippen and Clough discussing 
the messier aspects of medicine with a bit of 
Black Magic thrown in by Frank now and 
then, must have been novel in the extreme. 

If Frank does not make the grade, it will 
not be for lack of ability, but because he ha.s 
excited someone to violence upon his person 
by one of his execrable puns, for which may 
Heaven pardon him! for we won't!

WILLIAM FISHER BRINTON 

327 Sharpless Street 

WEST CHESTER, PA. 

Born 1909 

Entered from Westtown School in 1928. 

Through the majesty of motion 
From the boundless everywhere 
Comes the mighty Quaker atom 
Billy Brinton . . . and his hair! 

A ND here we have it, the Frank Merriwell 
of Quakerdom, the blooming flower of 
Westtown, the reason why barbers go crazy. 
For you must know that Billy has always 
been an advocate of the type of coiffure 
popularized by Crawford and Shippen. But 
how does he continue to make his hair stand 
erect after it has reached a length of four 
inches.'* Even the incontrovertible insight of 
the Haverford student body, was unable to 
cope with this, the inexplicable of inexplic- 
ables. 

After which brief introduction, let it be 



said that Brinton is the type of American 
youth that enables Dan Beard to keep his 
faith in the Boy Scout movement. He never 
smokes, drinks, chews, nor swears (except 
once, when he whispered "damn" under his 
breath, and threw the ghosts of a hundred 
years of Barclay Tower inhabitants into 
consternation i . He plays soccer, runs cross- 
country, and is a veteran waiter, which makes 
him a well-rounded athlete. 

But wait a minute, folks. It is with pride 
that we announce that Billy is one of the 
truly creative artists on the campus. He is a 
leading exponent of the modernistic school 
of photography. This new technique was 
achieved only after years of adjusting the 
News photography to the caliber of its 
articles. You know, anybody can take a 
picture that we all recognize, but taking a 
picture that even the subject himself can't 
recognize, man, there's an achievement for 
you. (It has always been our own personal 
belief that Ivditor Baker of the News had 
something to do with those Neics photos. 
Baker always was a great one for subtlety.)

Born 1910 

Entered from Ridgewood High Scliool in 
1«>27. 

W/HO is that t;ill tliin lad, clothed in white 
garb, who hutters Oscars })read for liiin, 
who passes Sandy the potatoes, and who 
chats gaUantly with Amy and Jean. That 
hard-working individual, my friends is Dick 
Browne, whose name is spelled with a final c. 

Lank, as he is called because of his gaunt 
stature, was a member of the Class of '31, but 
thought better of his folly and took out a 
year to work, returning to graduate with our 
class (Hooray!). We can remember him as a 
Sophomore cussing out some of us Rhinies. 
Now however, Dick has grown up and his 
tongue is no longer so vituperative, but sweet, 
gentle and un-profane. 

Dick's favorite pastime is listening to the 
snappiest orchestras. Cab Calloway is the 
best, he thinks, with Guy Lombardo not far 
behind. It is not uncommon to see him over 
in third entry, upstairs on the left, head back, 
drinking in the harmony of saxophones, and 
the shrill piercing notes of the brasses. Lest 
he should be thought inhospitable, it must be 
remembered that he is the most delightful of 





hosts in his own right, and always has a 
supply of cigarettes, food, and cheap maga- 
zines on hand, over in his Founders chamber. 

Lank is quite the ladies' man. He had 
some interesting experiences along this line 
on his way east last fall. And we have been 
wondering whatever happened to that beauti- 
ful portrait which disappeared from his 
bureau recently. The boys in Founders 
say St. Valentine's day had something to do 
with its removal. 

Browne seems to be awfully keen about 
certain week-end trips to New York. Per- 
sonally, we have a slight suspicion that he 
doesn't limit his activities to viewing hockey 
games. And if you want more information on 
this subject, oh gentle reader, just drop in 
No. 11 Lloyd .some night before half-past 
one and ask the boys, who will give you all 
the inside dope with the greatest of pleasure.

JOSEPH MOORE CADBIRY 
260 E. Main Street 

MOORESTOWN, N. J. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Moorestown Friends' School in 
1928. 

IT HAS become a well-known college tradi- 
tion that only three things can make Joe 
put on a necktie, to wit, Meeting, D. V. O. C, 
and Adele. However that may be, it is not 
an unusual sight to see him on fine after- 
noons in a costume suggesting a hobo or a 
western explorer, with his lovely curly locks 
fluttering in the wind, with cheeks of ruddy 
hue, with a bow and arrow ready for a shot, 
and Jopson at his side. He is out to sweeten 
the existence of our feathered friends by the 
slaughter of domestic felines, stray or other- 
wise, which are later cut to pieces in the 
interests of science. Though it is beyond a 
doubt that the birds appreciate the great 
service rendered them (poor dear things) 
a number of inhumane and cat loving faculty 



members unfortunately are of other mind, 
and when Tommie fails to wend the weary 
way home for the evening milk, they look 
upon Joe with eyes of ire. 

Joe's existence until this past year has gone 
to prove the old adage — "College bred — a 
four years' loaf". With Senior year came 
Physics I, and Fritzie's moderate demands 
almost produced a metamorphosis in 
Cadbury's behavior. This was, however, 
somewhat balanced by the arrival of one 
Ford of unknown vintage and eccentric 
habits which also refused to be slighted. 

But Joe, essentially so calm and lovable, 
can really be aroused to fervid activity. 
Once Rhinie year, having taken offense at 
Freddie Rudge for having saturated his 
room with a scrap-basket or so of the best 
quality North Barclay water, he showed us 
the inner man of fire and henceforth was 
allowed to resimie his peaceful existence. 

The association with Adele has exerted of 
late a sweetening and civilizing influence on 
Joe, often barbaric as he was. We can well 
imagine him becoming the paragon of blissful 
and quiet domesticity in the very near future.

^^EDNESDAY afternoon— Jack shaves, 
sliines, sliowcrs, and shampoos. This 
constitntes the prehniinaries to liis weekly 
trip to Leary's Bookstore. Just why he is 
interested in hooks no one has been able to 
find out but that's his story and he sticks to 
it. At any rate last winter he announced his 
engagement and that's an engagement if we 
ever saw one. Suffice it to say that Jack has 
finally gotten on the books and has climbed 
out of the seventies into the more aristo- 
cratic eighties. 

In spite of the fact that in his Junior year 
Jack was elected the Adonis of Haverford, he 
has been successful in other lines. If all the 
ice Conner delivered in Ocean City during 
the last summer were laid end to end — . Well, 
anyway, Jack is a full-fiedged iceman — no, 
not what you're thinking. He came to 
college in wonderful shape, all set for the 
annual football classic, '3£, vs. '33. It might 
be added that by holding down his end berth 
for four years. Jack has greatly helped to set 
the perfect record hung up by the Class of 
*32, — no hits, no runs, no errors. 





Settle and Conner have roomed together 
for four years and Conner's humor is at last 
breaking down Settle's dogged resistance. 
Conner's persistence has taught Jack to 
listen the first time in order to avoid numer- 
ous and monotonous repetitions. The only 
thing on which the two Jacks agree definitely 
is the "Tiger Rag" — they both try to play 
it at once on the piano Hall Conn so unwisely 
bequeathed to them. This proved a rather 
forceful way to make their fellow entryites 
realize that the library was the place to try to 
study. 

Bijur's cigarette supply has often suffered 
neavy drainage at the hands of Conner. 
Herbie's fickleness in tobacco tastes leads him 
to change his brands often, whereupon Jack 
must accustom himself to the same — rather 
inconsiderate of Herb.

DAVID PRICE CORDRAY 

College Avenue 

HAVERFORD, PA. 

Born 1905 

Entered from U. S. Military Academy in 
19!29. 



Perhaps this is due to tri-monthly Meeting 
and the Quaker influence construed in its 
widest sense to include Baker and Gaskill. 

Dave is a philosopher, not in the pure sense 
of a Kant or of a Gaskill but he has constructed 
a workable h\-pothesis on which to base his 
life, to the effect that "work is a nuisance 
but must be accomplished to realize the better 
side of life". He has his own peculiar ideas 
on the meaning of "better". "Life is just a 
bowl of cherries", he exclaims as he sums up 
his philosophy. 

Dave is smooth on the outside, but tough 
enough underneath. Such a combination 
should place him well up in his chosen pro- 
fession, medicine, and help him to build up a 
broad practice (women . . . and children 
confide in him). 

Cordray, a day student, eats lunch at 
college. He says he likes to watch the animals 
feed. He convinces himself of his own 
superiority by the utterance of an occa- 
sional "oint, oint" with which he scornfully 
characterizes the gluttony of his comrades as 
he grabs the applesauce from beneath Wood- 
ward's ravenous clutches. 

"Come on over to the house and have a 
cigarette, Harry." 



"Can you tell me if David Cordray is 
married" responds a naive feminine voice in 
a hopeful tone in reply to Oscar's tentative 
"hello". Although Dave has been with us 
since Sophomore year, his private life is 
so mysterious that we can do little more than 
second the Registrar's dubious denial to the 
above question. Occasionally rumors of his 
past do come to our attention, and we learn 
that his quite placid existence at Haverford 
was preceded by a turbulent period at West 
Point. 

Mars, personified by football, and Venus, 
left Cordray but little opportunity for 
academic research, so of late he has found it 
wise to sacrifice the God of War, and run no 
danger of repressing strong biological drives.

GEORGE KNOWLES CROZKR, III 

Montgomery Avenue ;ni<l (lierry Lane 

WYNNKWOOI), PA. 

Born li)l() 

Entered fioni ^^ont•^()lnery Scliool in \*MH. 

CCION of a socially i)roniineiit (do yon read 
the social column) lMiiladel[)liia family, 
George has spent all too little of his time on 
this our hallowed cam])us. Four years as a 
day student have left most of us only with 
the impression of a genial well-dressed, well 
car-ed visitor who always seemed to pay 
attention to even the dullest professors and 
whose marks amply confirmed that idea. 

Once in a while between classes George 
would drop into the Baker-Jopson dive over 
in Eighth Entry and join the boys in study, 
but towards the end of his collegiate career, 
the siren Lockwood drew him into idyllic 
Latin courses where brainy people meet 
once a week (two lumps, and a little cream 
please, sir!) and consider a 90 a disgracefully 
low mark. 

Along this line, we cannot refrain from 
picturing for you, gentle reader, George in 
Italian class. Comfortably reclining on one 





of Sandy's many luxurious chairs, cigarette or 
pipe aristocratically lying between his lips, 
he reads off his fifty lines of Dante with a 
studied indifference, is mildly annoyed with 
Baker's quibbles, and occasionally engages in 
an argument with his host about the pro- 
nunciation of some ancient name or another 
that nobody gives a damn ab(jut anyway. 
These conference courses removed his joyous 
person from the campus and his companions 
lost touch with his amours which were carried 
on with surprising degrees of success. 

Everybody who meets George likes him; 
and when in future years as a comfortable, 
portly and dignified family man and social 
lion he returns to Haverford in his Cadillac 
16, we'll be glad to see him and to talk over 
the good old days we wish we had spent 
together at college.

WALLACE DE LAGUNA 
221 Roberts Road 

BRYN MAWR, PA. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Haverford School in 1928. 

\y/ALLY comes from a family of philo- 
sophers, as you would probably guess 
after a few minutes conversation. It's not 
that he is specializing in philosophy, or talks 
about philosophy, but he gives the impres- 
sion of having devoted deep thought to 
subjects which would seldom occur to any- 
one else. In fact, Wally is original. 

His specialty at our little college has been 
Physics, but living as he does at Bryn Mawr 
College he has found time to spare from his 
studies while pursuing various hobbies, not 
the least of which is doing things to his trusty 
Ford and much abused motorcycle. Inci- 
dentally, not the least among the things he 
does to these vehicles, is to Drive them — 
drive with a capital D. Yes, an automobile 



ride with Wally is like going up in an air- 
plane without a parachute — you are crazy 
to do it in the first place, and yet don't dare 
jump out. Not that he isn't a good driver, 
but if he doesn't go in for taxi driving, he 
will have missed his calling. 

But really, as we endeavored to impress on 
you in the beginning, you must not look for 
the ordinary in Mr. De Laguna. In debate 
he is an extremely dangerous opponent. 
For in a slow killing way, he is sure to pile up 
devastating arguments which would never 
have occurred to anyone else. Carrying this 
ability a little farther, the class concedes 
Wally to be unexcelled in the Art of Asking 
Professors Embarrassing Questions. "Now 
Dr. Sutton, if what you said last is true, then 
the universe must be upside down, which is 
obviously absurd because of the law of gravi- 
tation and the Compton effect, etc." "Yes, 
De Laguna, the point is obscure, but etc. " 

However, just to illustrate that no one is 
perfect, we don't hesitate to point out that 
Wally is not only the champion X-ray tube 
destroyer in the Physics department, but 
that he also engineered that famous Bryn 
Mawr Pig Plot — but you'll find that 
described elsewhere in this volume, so we'll 
say no more.

NARBERTII, Pa. 

Born 1!)10 

Entered from Lower Morion Hij^li School in 
1 !»'2S. 

pOlGII, tough, and full of fight! We think 
right ofT of Brud, or in more intimate 
terms the "Dote". We will long remember 
those exhibition boxing bouts Jimior year 
when he took on the hardest (Quakers in 
college, Jake and Bort, and then Phil Wagner. 

Football gave Brud a chance to show us 
what he really ctndd do and as the typical 
high scliool Record would say, he showed us 
plenty. While carrying tlie ball he never gave 
up hope of getting somewhere with it, even 
if he had to run the wrong way. 

Things were not quite so easy for Brud 
in his Spring occupation. The trouble was 
to find what he should do. He could sprint, 
high-jump, broad-jump, throw the discus 
and the javelin. He even claimed he could 
beat Foley in the pole vault if only they 
would not put the bar up so high. Naturally 
no one could do all of these things at once, 
not even a Dothard, so a choice had to be 
made. It turned out to be largely a matter 
of elimination. After losing meals every day 
as a result of races on the board track, run- 





^3zr 



ning was given up. Bad knees and ankles 
from football were hard on jumping and the 
size of Harry Fields and "Egg" Morris 
would discourage any discus thrower. They 
insisted on raising the bar so he left that field 
of activity to Giff, finally deciding to dedicate 
himself to the javelin. 

Brud is another one of that too numerous 
throng who dares to risk incurring our 
Father William's wrath by playing cards 
(oh, shame!) which is a not infrequent past- 
time with him. We are not sure but are 
afraid that he plays Lenz, and all we can do, 
as in the case of the Strick, is to suggest he get 
himself a Culbertson. 

Brud majored in the difficult department 
of engineering which gave him sufficient 
spare time to care for his numerous and 
pleasant social obligations.

NIMSON STINE ECKERT 

33 South 16th Street 

ALLENTOWN, PA. . 

Born 1911 

Entered from Haverford School in 19'-28. 

kjIMSON STINE ECKERT is the lad 
whose noble features you will notice in 
the picture above. Familiarly called "Nims" 
he divides his time between bridge, eco- 
nomics, and a certain young lady whom he 
looks upon as the personification, nay the 
epitome of virtue, of all that is good in this 
evil world. 

Stine spent the first two years of his life 
amongst us on the bottom floor of South 
Barclay where he and his pal Archie 
McKinlay were responsible for some of the 
best conflagrations which that venerable 
hall has seen in its long years of existence. 
They took satanic pleasure in shattering 
the panes of the windows with a regularity 
which may perhaps explain why Doggie 
looked so prosperous at that time. Eckert's 



moderate ability in missile hurling was far 
outshadowed by the rowdy gang on the third 
floor headed by Quaker Engle, West Chester 
Allen, and Staten Island Woodward. 

Junior year, he and Ballard made common 
fortune and have roomed together ever since 
in Eighth. There a bridge circle has come 
into existence consisting of Ballard, Eckert, 
and the boys across the hall, which bids fair 
to assume predominance over the down 
stairs gang underneath. Due to this diabolical 
organization, Stine finds it necessary to spend 
most of his time in the library. But do not be 
deceived, he is not a book worm. For Nims 
the Library is the College gymnasium where 
he and Longaker daily engage in the national 
basketshooting championship. 

Stine almost didn't come to the Junior 
Prom in Sophomore year, due to a mix-up 
over the measles. If you haven't heard about 
this ask Woodward who is very wise and 
knows just lots and lots of things. 

Our hero has in his possession a swell set of 
furniture which he defends ardently against 
the carelessness of his roommate. He won't 
admit it, but we are pretty sure he is saving 
it for his future menage, if he ever can con- 
vince the young lady.

JOSEPH RUSSELL ELKINTON 

MOYLAX, PA. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Westtown Scliool in 1!)'2S. 

IT IS invariably on a delightfully peaceful 
evening of study that Russ Elkinton — and 
let it be made clear here that his last name con- 
tains no g of any kind, burst in on the boys 
across the hall to tell them how much over- 
time Dougie kept him tonight, or that a new 
applicant for the motorcycle called up from 
who he thinks he can snaffle $75 for his 
cement-mixer. With Elkinton once in the 
room all further effort at concentration is at 
an end, and the suite at once becomes noisy 
and riotous in bull session. Sometimes such 
visits take place more than once during the 
day in which case the earlier ones inevitably 
end in a pitched battle from which Russ 
always escapes unscathed. 

But his most important task in life is 
writing at least one letter a day to a certain 
somebody out West. The third entry doesn't 
object so much to his constant retirement to 
secret quarter for the purpose of composing 
endearing missives. What it does object to, 
however, is the fact that almost all the mail 
for the entry is solely for one person and 
from the same place. And that isn't mail, it's 
f e-mail. 





Behind his serene good nature and easy-go- 
lucky manner, Russ conceals a first class mind 
and business head. The fact that he can pull 
an A with Dougie proves the truth of the first 
assertion and his business management of 
this our Record (Hooray!) confirms the second 
beyond all possible shadow of doubt. 

Perhaps it is this high-powered brain 
which is causing Russell the gradual loss of 
his locks. Less and less often does he trot to 
the barber shop and thinner and thinner 
grows that topping thatch. Remember, 
though, Russ, that all distinguished medical 
men grow prematurely bald of pate, and be of 
good heart! 

One summer Elkinton went to Europe and 
he hasn't been the same since, and we doubt 
if the change was due to the Friends' 
Conference he attended in London.

ROBERT FRY EXCiL?:, JR. 

Haverford Gables 

HAVERFORD, PA. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Westtown School in 1928. 

DOB is one of those fortunate creatures, says 
his roommate, who spends most of his 
spare time sitting in an easy chair reading the 
Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, or P. G. 
Wodehouse, and comes out with a high B 
average much to the disgust and admiration 
of the whole entry. Ever since he has been 
at Haverford, Bob has preferred the quiet 
sedentary pleasures of scholastic pursuit (in 
an easy chair) to the more boisterous pleas- 
ures of college life. 

But this is misleading. We cannot forget 
those battles of fruit and vegetables in which 
he took part in South Barclay back in Sopho- 
more year. He used to use especially pre- 
pared oranges and apples which had de- 
generated to the proper condition of maturity 
in the rain gutter outside his third-story 



room, so that upon hitting their object, 
which they usually did, be it a Woodward or 
Pusey, they would burst and squash in almost 
the messiest way imaginable. 

Also he is occasionally overcome with a 
seiziu-e of unwonted energj' which usually 
displays itself in a weekly resort to the Engle 
tool chest at the hour of eleven o'clock at 
night when a serious attempt is being made 
by the other members of the "studio" to do 
some work (that's what they say; and they 
are Parker and Bacon, if you must know their 
names). At such moments of quiet concen- 
trated thought, Engle decides to "fix" the 
lamps or saw off the legs of the sofa. Conse- 
quently the next half hour is one of hammer- 
ing and banging until Bob is exhausted, and 
retires to sweet slumber. 

Oftentimes it is after such a night that he is 
likely to arise in the wee small hours of the 
morning, for he never believes in half-doing 
a thing, to go duck hunting with Rhoads or 
rabbit spearing with Joe Cadbury. How- 
ever, following such long periods of dissipa- 
tion Bob comes back to college vowing that he 
will never again be led astray by the false 
allurement of big game stalking.

But Phil is more than an almanac. He is

But as for the sleeping. It is 11.30 P. M. 
"Honest to goodness, I wish you guys would 
clear out. I have to get some sleep. I have a 
hard day ahead tomorrow, " says our Phil, 
and bang! goes the bedroom door. And some 
hours later those whom he so rudely ad-

vantage where they can observe the sunrise, 
which is the signal for all Haverford bull-

Phil is the first person in the class to have a

his name to his Christmas cards, the social

HARRY FIELDS 

5006 N. 7th Street 

PHILADELPHIA, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Frankford High School in 1928. 

^HH^DREX scream, women faint and 
strong men turn pale when this modern 
superman makes his appearance. Possess- 
ing the head of an Apollo, the body of a 
Hercules, the brain of an Einstein (he is 
probably a first cousin, anyhow) we gaze in 
awestruck wonder at this quintessence of 
perfection, this supreme realization of the 
Almighty's handiwork, this all of alls, than 
which there is no aller. BUT— the heel of 
Achilles has been found — Harry has no 
capacity for exploding with a good red- 
blooded, virile outburst of righteous indigna- 
tion. He is the gentlest of lambs, compared 
with which a zephyr would appear to be a 
raging tornado. He has been known to get 
angry but twice, once when he ran wild and 
electrified us all by placing as runner-up for 
the National Heavyweight Wrestling Cham- 



pionship and again when he had to give 
up on the eighth luncheon dessert, thereby 
forfeiting to Lipsitz who consumed nine of 
those delicacies. 

At different times Harry has been variously 
mistaken for ' 'Egg" Morris, Harvey Harman, 
and the V . S. Akron. In the latter case, his 
great breast begins to heave, his breath 
comes in short gasps, his eyes flash, and 
shaking a menacing fist heavenward, amidst 
a general fusillade of popping vest-buttons, he 
proclaims in stentorian tones, "I'd still 
rather be Fields". And there you have it — 
the Fields Filosophy. 

But don't be misled by all this airy persi- 
flage. Beneath that stout exterior lies a stout 
interior; beneath that hairy chest thuds a 
poetic soul. Never shall we forget the occa- 
sion when, soaring on the wings of Pegasus 
(heavy-duty model) with the wind in his 
hair, and the divine light of the Eternal 
shining from his eyes, our hero dashed off 
the inspired lines which we here immortalize: 

Roses are red, 

Violets are blue.

CUITS PRESSED!" Gitf is our combina- 
tion tailor's boy — football player — ladies' 
man — pole-vaulter. A very versatile young 
man, you see. Gift's football career smacks 
of Horatio Alger. Some of us who were not so 
good can remember how as captain of Pop's 
squad Giff spurred us on to bigger and better 
things in the way of drubbings by such na- 
tionally known scholastic institutions as tlie 
Goldie Business College of Wilmington, 
Delaware. But under Pop's careful tutelage 
Giff developed. In the final game of the 
season, sophomore year, Harvey Harman 
substituted everybody except the band and 
President Comfort. Here it was that Giff 
got his big chance. The next year he 
blossomed out as a regular and we learned 
what the expression, "Figliting Irish," really 
means. 

But, lest we forget, Giff was the leader of 
the glee club. It seems that in all good 
college glee clubs the leader conducts in a 
suit of tails. Witness Giff the night before a 
concert, assembling his outfit. You have no 
idea the effect produced by Vaux's coat, his 
own pants, Trenbath's tie, the lord-only- 
knows-whose white vest, and, as a crown- 





ing glory. La Due's opera hat. Hats off to 
our inimitable glee club leader. 

If Giff ever needs a recommendation as an 
efficiency expert, let him come around to us. 
He was chairman of our incomparable (ask 
any member of the Class of IflS^) junior prom 
committee. For some strange reason Giff 
seemed to fear that some of our less scrupu- 
lous brethren might try to crash (imagine 
that) the prom. They were fooled. Every 
window in the place was nailed shut. Giff 
was just one jump ahead of the other clever 
minds in College. He always is.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

Born 1912 

Entered from Hyde Park High School in 
1948. 

k ytAY we present here the nice boy, the 
infant prodigy of our class. Taking the 
last statement first, no one can deny that 
Foxy is an infant in years, and Oscar and 
Horse-face Harry will testify to his scholastic 
attainments. And who should know better 
than those eminent gentlemen just how 
brilliant our William is? 

But we will best remember Bill as the most 
accommodating, pleasantest, most obliging — 
in short, the nicest — of us all. Is there a book 
to be returned to the library, a schedule to 
be filed at the office, a cigarette to be 
bummed, a compact review of Phil sought the 
night before the mid-year? Page Bill Fox. 
Would .'omeone like to walk to Doc's, play 



solitaire, Russian bank, rummy or even 
bridge? Page Bill Fox. Is last-minute aid 
needed in any scholastic assignment no 
matter on what subject? Page Bill Fox. To 
sum up, if there is anything to be done in 
which assistance is desired or demanded, 
find Foxy and your troubles are ended. 

According to the above paragraph one 
might imagine that Bill merely sits around 
college waiting for people in distress to ap- 
proach him. Nothing could be further 
from the truth. His activities extend from 
Conshohocken to New London and are just 
as varied. Any one of them would have 
sufficed to fill the prosaic life of most college 
students, but not so Foxy. Perhaps the 
outstanding example was the Empress, whose 
untimely demise was mourned throughout 
the countryside for a radius of almost ten 
miles. These are but two examples of a 
versatility that includes the difficult feat of 
rooming successfully with Ferris for three 
years as well as the simpler pastime of just 
Horsing around. Truly, ' 'This was a man. "

BALA, PA. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Lower Merion High School in 
1928. 

Xy/ELL, I suppose you saw what Lower 
Merion did last night.^ O'l^U scored 
fifty-five points. That makes twenty 
straight. It's the same old story." And 
with these remarks Gerry would start another 
day telling all who would listen about the 
grandest high school in the country. Rare 
indeed was the "bull session" into which he 
did not manage, by hook or by crook, to lug 
in some anecdote about his beloved Alma 
Mater. 

But it was on the cinder path that Gerry 
did most of his "talking", and proved suffi- 
cient of an "orator" along this line to wind 
up four years of successful endeavor by cap- 
turing the track captaincy. He is said to 
hold the unique record and honor of never 



having been the cause of making "Pop" 
Haddleton lose a wink of sleep — which, 
considering that gentleman's propensities 
for worrying, is quite an achievement. But 
then it must be confessed that Pop" remained 
in blissful ignorance of the existence of a 
certain yoimg lady in far-off Erie, Pa., and of 
the many, long nocturnal hours shamefully 
consumed in letter-writing. Whether because 
"Pop" learned of this latter affair, or for other 
more immediate concerns, in any case cer- 
tain it is that this last year Gerry grew restive 
at the inadequacy of epistolary communica- 
tion, and decided to see more of the country. 
Most of his Xmas holidays, it seems, were 
spent in exploring the romantic shores of 
one of the Great Lakes. 

During the long winter months, Gerry has 
beguiled away much of his time strumming a 
banjo or guitar in that well-known jazz 
orchestra, "The Haverfordians". And does 
he have the fancy associations.^ Ask him 
about his pal, Rudy Vallee.

Entered from Hofjota Ilijili School in 1!)'28. 

/^I.IVEU, hke Osgood and a few others, 
having been afflicted with Merionitis in 
freshman year, never recovered from the 
contagion, and tlirongh all fniir years has 
vaHantly uplield tlie hoimr nf tlic class in 
those nether regions against cadi successive 
invasion of freshmen. When even the 
prospect of Lloyd was unahle to lure liim 
away this year, we began to sns{)ect that the 
reason might be a lingering desire to get from 
the current freshmen retaliation for the 
numerous offenses inflicted upon him in his 
own Hhinie year. 

Towards the end of Hhinie year Oliver 
achieved a brief fame, or rather notoriety, as 
the co-possessor and co-wielder, with Taba- 
kin, of the Merion Shillaly, the cause of 
many a fruitless pursuit on the part of all the 
other Merionites. What with his con.stant 
exercise of that instrument and his participa- 
tion in water fights and other forms of 
Merionitic vice, it would seem impossible 
that he should have been able to devote the 
time he did to the \ews Service board. How- 





ever, for two years Oliver could be found at 
every college game, writing thrilling dis- 
patches for the Philly and other small-town 
papers. 

In addition to acting as a waiter, at which 
he excels, Oliver has spent much time these 
latter years in the interests of baseball. In 
fact he seems to divide his time about equally 
between managing the team and keeping up a 
dogged defense against those (to himj de- 
praved individuals who insist that baseball is 
declining as a college sport. Figures, sta- 
tistics and score-sheets to the contrary, 
Oliver, by some mystic communion with the 
tutelary gods of the game, keeps up his robust 
faith in the future of his team, and when 
challenged will stoutly maintain that "next

FRANCIS BARTON GUMMERE, 3rd 
8 Argyle Street 

ROCHESTER, N. Y. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Haverford School in lO'-iS 

\Y/HEN Francis Barton Gumniere, III , 
rolled into South Barclay in the fall of 
1928, after a summer abroad, his classmates 
promptly elected him to guard the treasury 
of 1932, which he did in a manner befitting 
the fifth lineal descendent of the Gummere 
tribe. 

In sophomore year, Bart made his head- 
quarters in Fourth Entry, and has reigned 
there ever since. (We say "reigned" ad- 
visedly.) Once when asked by a freshman if 
he was Tom Harvey's roommate, he looked 
at his inquisitor scornfully, and announced: 
"No, son, I am not Harvey's roommate; 
Harvey is my roommate." 

With basketball, baseball and trying 
out for the managership of the Musical 
Clubs taking so much time, Bart decided that 



a biology major would most perfectly fit in 
with the general scheme of things. A keen 
interest in Biblical Literature became ap- 
parent about this time also, and any day with 
more than two hours of classes was a bleak 
one indeed. How could a fellow go in for 
athletics during the afternoon and spend the 
evening in Camden if he didn't get a, bit of 
rest in the next morning? We ask you! 
How.^ 

During class elections at the end of Soph 
year, Bart pulled the prize hammer of his 
career. Gaining the floor during nomina- 
tions for the presidency, he asked: "Who 
appoints the Junior Prom Chairman.' The 
first-half President.' " When answered in the 
affirmative, he shouted dramatically: "I 
nominate Foley!" On the strength of this 
his roommate received three votes. 

Not content with two sport captaincies. 
Barton saddled himself with another respon- 
sibility last winter — this time a permanent 
one. Germantown proved to be the oasis in 
the desert, and now everyday a Ford touring 
car carries a groom-to-be to the home of a 
bride-to-be. 

We wish them every happiness!

S. A., hut four days in Gay Paree changed 
him into a first class "Frog," and as such he 
arrived at Haverford, to take the College 
and T'licle Bill by storm. 

Bob has three main passions in life: French 
(as has been intimated), oratory and the 
drama, all of which he has (more or less) suc- 
cessfully pursued here at College. But 
besides these — shall we say — virtues, we can 
mention off-hand at least three deep and 
besetting sins: women, a blue cape, and a 
mania for clipping coupons from magazines 
for free samples and the like. 

The women Bob has already told you about 
(when he could catch you) so that it is 
scarcely necessary to list his conciuests in 
this place. But many were the happy hours 
he and Rudge, aided and abetted by Katzen- 
bach, whiled away in discussing Love as ex- 
pounded by Emerson, Havelock Ellis and 
other authorities. 





The matter of the cloak we shall pass over 
lightly — in fact it might be better if we were 
to cloak it in utter oblivion. For some 
reason it has appeared but little of late, 
though we suspect that it is still treasured 
away in Bob's closet. And speaking of 
closets — but that's another story, one which 
can't be told here. 

As for the mail, all we can say is that the 
rest of the Seventh entry began to notice 
that all the coupons were being surrepti- 
tiously clipped from their magazines, and 
that shortly thereafter Bob began to receive 
hundreds of replies to his nefarious requests. 
^Ye do hate to mention it, but some of the 
replies were addressed to Miss Claudia R. 
Haines, and were not fit for self-respecting 
young men to read.

JOSEPH NICHOLSON HARTEL 

45 West End Avenue 

HADDONFIELD, N. J. 

Born 1908 

Entered from George School in 19'27. 

lOE is a human time-piece. He retires every 
night with absolute regularity at the 
outrageous hour of ten-thirty. He is ex- 
tremely punctual to meals and to classes, 
always arriving at least five minutes in 
advance of everybody else so great is his 
hunger and his thirst for knowledge. 

It has been a considerable mystery to us 
where Ilartel got all his varied nicknames. 
Be that as it may, he is variously called 
"Spike", "Room and Bath," and "Hotel". 
He has been around these parts long enough 
however to have received almost any moniker 
from the inventive genius of his fellows. 

Every morning after breakfast, and you 
can count on this, my friends, summer or 
winter, Joe gets his newspaper and with his 
back to the fireplace, regardless of whether 



any heat is issuing from therein, proceeds 
to read it thoroughly. 

Hartel's dissipations consist of vitavose, 
and pinochle. Who can forget him intoning 
in deep Luntish voice: 

"I have a considerable meld." 

The thorn in his flesh, th? cause of his 
insomnia, is that estimable and apparently 
harmless creature Jack Settle who bothers 
him by interrupting his consistent studious 
efforts. 

There are two things which have become 
intimately identified with his person. In the 
first place his mustache which is of two year 
standing, blond, respectable, and forgivable. 
Secondly his race track suit. This is un- 
pardonable. 

One time Joe was coughing and nearly 
broke his back so that he had to indulge in a 
vacation in Mabel's sanitarium where he 
was taken for a prof. We recommend Old 
Golds or the Smith Brothers. 

Hartel is majoring in Government, and 
under excellent equine instruction and aid is 
making great strides in it. He expects to join 
that army of the poor, the school teachers, 
and instruct this branch of science, or maybe 
history.

Entered from Westtowii Scliool 
re-entered lfl;?(). 



}9'iS: 



CllOiri'L^ after the opening of Junior year, 
a certain open letter to Smith College an- 
nounced that "a mountain, entitled John 
Hacker Hoag, has been more or less per- 
manently installed on the Haverford 
campus". Thus was heralded far and wide 
John's return to the fold of the faithful. 

John was soon recognized as the glibbest 
and most polished raconteur in the class. 
Each story told served only to remind him of 
further incidents and adventures. More- 
over, he had the jump on the rest of us in that 
he has not merely heard of, but knows all the 
characters of Haverford legend who shone 
about the time we were entering prep school. 
John is the only undergraduate who was on 
the last cricket trip to England, and the only 
one who knows at first hand how our Haver- 
fordian ancestors conducted Rhinie cake- 
walks, cane-fights and other honorable insti- 
tutions which we moderns have utterly 
debased or completely forgotten. But John, 
too, proved himself an iconoclast, smashing 
all precedent by inveigling the faculty into 
letting him finish in February. Accordingly, 
when once he had recovered from the strain

of mid-years, John hastened to join the 
rapidly growing ranks of those enmeshed in 
the holy bonds of matrimony. 

But his chief claim to fame was gained in 
cricket and soccer. It was a sight for the 
gods to watch John waddle down the field 
after what always appeared a peculiarly 
insignificant soccer ball. At one time he 
entertained track aspirations, thus causing 
continual strife witli Pop about the proper 
training for putting the shot — John's concep- 
tion being to walk out smoking a cigarette in 
the inevitable holder! His career with us 
was brief, but with the help of the faithful 
"George" he firmly established himself as 
one of the class's most picturesque characters.

SYDNEY ALFRED HUNT 

The Valleyview Farm, Whitehall Road 

NORRISTOWN, PA. 

Born 1909 

Entered from West Philadelphia High School 
in 1928. 

The best place to raise the curtain on Sid is 
right where he lives: on the stage. That 
tall, spare figure with the wig-like head of 
jet-black hair and the circus-trained eye- 
brows is unmistakeably he. Like a dancing 
master he gyrates about giving suggestions 
as to stage directions, helping other people 
with their lines and gestures, whispering 
sweet nothings into the ears of Bryn Mawr, 
and even doing a little acting himself, just to 
show that he practices what he preaches. 

He has walked away with most of the pro- 
ductions in which he was cast, and ended his 
career in a blaze of glory as Romeo, giving the 
entire Hathaway Shakespeare Club (exclu- 
sively for women) emotional delirium tre- 
mens — not excluding the old lady with the 
ear trumpet in the forty-second row. 



Nobody has ever been able to figure Syd 
out. His likes and dislikes are violent. He is 
serious in his frivolities and vice versa. Syd 
is disconcertingly sincere and so is an un- 
merciful critic; but since his criticism falls 
heaviest on himself, his occasional victims 
grin and wish him well. 

For four years we have been vainly trying 
to ascertain his six or seven middle names 
which he refuses to acknowledge. ^Ye have a 
lasting respect for anyone who can keep a 
secret for that long against repeated attacks 
from all sides. The rumor has gone the 
rounds that one name is Roman and begins 
with a "C"'. We guess Caligula. (There, 
Syd, that ought to make you 'fess up). 

Tom Potts, serious, unimaginative pillar of 
morality, and Syd, emotional, fiery, and 
sensitive, have lived together for two years. 
Despite their dissimilarities, they generally 
seem to arrive by widely divergent paths at 
similar conclusions in any serious matter, 
and that is about the biggest compliment 
we can pay to either one.

Entered from Eastern Iligli School in lO-iS. 

"Alt ultra-poetical, su per-aesthctical 
"Out-of-the-way young man!" 

THESE fainons lines represent perfectly 
the key-note of (lif's existence. lie is one 
of the most incorrigible romanticists ever to 
tread the well-worn paths from Haverford 
to Bryn Mawr — and back. Because of his 
unswerving devotion to romance and aesthe- 
tics. Dame Rumour has found in him a 
subject worthy of her art. Rhinie year, 
they say an irate sophomore, frenzied by the 
never silent Vic, burst into Gif's room to 
find him clad only in mystic veils, perform- 
ing an esoteric dance to the voluptuous 
strains of "Salome"'. 

In "Dr. Faustus"' he again created a sensa- 
tion when, after much vain conjuring, he 
eventually appeared — an epic moment in the 
annals of Roberts Hall stage — as Helen of 
Troy: flaxen locks, a painted face, "a sight 
to dream of, not to tell". The unruffled 
calm of Junior year was shattered for Gifi", 
when he suddenly discovered that his ' "tech- 





nique" was lamentably imperfect. But the 
real blossoming of Byrion came in Senior 
year when he fondly boasted a sweetheart in 
every Bryn ^lawr Hall. Whether or not this 
is strictly true, it is at least certain that in 
the eyes of Bryn Mawr he is one of the better 
known Haverfordians. 

During Junior and Senior years Gif's 
exuberance, Scudder's car, and the pernicious 
influence of Bijur and Walton made the 
Sex//i Entry the scene of numerous and 
noisy co-ed revels, in which Gif always 
played a prominent part. Whether or not 
the feminine pulchritude there gathered 
formed the inspiration for Gif's sonneteering 
we do not know — Gif and the muses alone can 
teU.

HARRY GORGAS MICHENER JOPSON 
1824 Pine Street 

PHILADELPHIA, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from William Penn Charter School 
in 1928. 

TALL and lanky, Harry's range of interest 
has been almost as wide as his body is long. 
His diverse activities fall into three general 
fields, viz: the pursuit of nature, the pursuit 
of other hurdlers, and the cultivation of a 
hopeful attitude. 

The first started, when as a lowly Rhinie 
he discovered that three of his classmates, 
Cadbury, Loomis and Smiley, were also in- 
fected with an unwholesome desire to pry 
into the innermost secrets of the campus 
birds. The Bird Club emerged from this 
disease, and has provided under various 
and assorted names amusement for us all 
ever since. Harry rose from the ranks to the 
Presidential chair and under the more general 
title of the Field Club, the bird trips were 
supplemented by cat hunts, geological ex- 
peditions and other forms of perversion. 



As a result, Harry has been following the 
customs of his beloved wild life, and after a 
hard night of Field Club activities, returns 
from his daily class, and hibernates, usually 
arising in time for dinner which he consumes 
in true animal fashion. 

Much of Jopson's time has been taken 
up by arranging inter-dorm basketball 
games for evenings which he has free, by 
frequently swearing off smoking, by receiving 
Gaskill's practical advice on the seven best 
ways of avoiding Pop's eager clutches, and 
by playing with his shot gun (beware, Wood- 
ward!) 

As Baker's roommate he has come in for 
his share of bridge, which may be one reason 
why that Hadfield came in about three 
months late. 

His Sophomore year marked the beginning 
of his optimistic hopeful attitude, and he 
has been most gay ever since. Well, Harry, 
may it always be thus in the weary days to 
come. Never give up hope! More power 
to you! And remember where there's a will, 
son, there's a way. 

"W^hy shouldn't I hit that pitcher.^

\Y/1IEN you see a fellow walking over the 
campus with the leaden step of a sleep- 
walker and a melancholy, far-away look in his 
eyes, you can be pretty sure either that some- 
body has just smitten him violently on the 
head with a twelve-pound mallet or that he is 
in love. When we consider that being hit 
heavily on the head steadily for four years is 
bound to have a deleterious effect upon the 
constitution and that Hall is still fairly 
robust, our deduction is plain. 

Such unswerving fidelity as Hall has 
exhibited through four long years is quite 
unique. The more so because in the past 
he has variously roomed with Read, the 
play-boy, Haines, the philanderer {soi- 
disant), and Rudge, the man of the world. 
The climax came this year with Allen— - 
(supply at willj, who of all people is least 
likely to sympathize with loves young 
dream. At any rate it has been a strenuous 
test of the strength of Hall's interior fire. 

Hall was our first-class president and, 
believe us, we never saw anything like his 





presiding. Bang (fist on tabled "Order 
Yes, Mr. Jopson." Bang (foot on floor) 
"Order!! Who knows whether Mr. Taylor 
is in order. Mr. Secretary, you had better 
find out from the constitution." Bang. 
"Order!!! I wish the dickens you'd sit down, 
Mr. Haines. Stop that chalk throwing back 
there." Bang. "Order!!!!! Great balls of 
fire!" Bang. 

Once upon a time Hall was a track man, 
but his wind soon gave out due to the strain 
of talking continually over the long-distance 
phone. A very affable chap (except when 
mooning over the next trip to Baltimore) 
and if you back him into a corner and choke 
him hell give you a cigarette, and that's 
as much as one should ever ask of a pal.

LEWIS LEBERMAX KOHN 

1516 N. loth Street 

PHILADELPHIA, PA. 

Born 191^2 

Entered from Central High School in 1928. 

CELDOM, if ever, are records set which it 
is well nigh impossible to break. Lew .set 
one of these. Lewis has enjoyed two college 
breakfasts in four years of college. That is to 
say, he has indulged in two college break- 
fasts during his career at Haverford, for 
nobody with the possil)le exception of Oscar, 
who has been sampling them for thirty years, 
has ever confessed that they enjoyed even 
one college breakfast. Lew would have had a 
perfect record, but once he stayed up all 
night studying for one of the Baron's ex- 
aminations and on another occasion, in an 
insane fit of scholastic endeavor, he got up at 
six o'clock for one of Postie's exams. 

Lew and Zephyr, the two Gussies, during 
their three-year period of association were 
noted for one thing. They were, to use 



somewhat technical language, absolutely and 
entirely uninhibited. Lew's first reaction to 
any crazy proposition is always "Why not?'^ 
and with that he goes for his coat and hat 
and we are on our way, that is, if the other 
parties to the transaction have not backed 
down. 

In addition to being Scudder's only rival 
in the field of music, Lew is a profound and 
extensive reader. The only reason he isn't a 
Phi Befe is that he chooses to do his reading 
along extra-curricular lines. Taking a course 
in "Italian Literature" of the Eighteenth 
Century" would, for example, exclude 
Casanova automatically from his reading list, 
although at any other time Lew might 
possibly be able to find something of interest 
in it. 

One final picture. Lew is playing bridge. 
Herbie Bijur is his partner. ' 'Six diamonds" 
says Lew, indicating no losing tricks in 
diamonds. "Pass"' says Bijur. Previous 
to that we thought Lew had no temper 
worthy of the name.

tions to his otherwise flawless i)eauty i)einf; a 
chisel chin and a pretzel figure. The old 
adage that a i)rotuding chin is a sign of — 
etc. is certainly true in Albie's case. To put 
it in his own fpiaint and inimitable way, his 
motto is ' 'We don't mess wid 'em ! " Even in 
the good old days when Rhinies were put 
through a first night and kept in their places, 
Albie started his career at Haverford with a 
policy of taking no "stuff" from anyone. 
Accordingly, instead of reporting in front 
of Barclay on that memorable eve of our 
arrival at this institution of higher learning, 
he went straight to bed. And not only that, 
but when Sevan's cohorts came after him, 
he told them where to get off, and actually 
got away with it!! And speaking of Fresh- 
man year, Albie then had one almost daily 





but little known pastime. That was throwing 
Lipsitz-the-H-out-of-the-room". The con- 
tinual necessity for recurrence of this feat is a 
sad commentary on Al's success. 

During his first two years Albie served on 
Pop's squad and was an important factor on 
the Class of '3'i football team. But about 
the last half of sophomore year he began to be 
seen on the campus only at infrequent inter- 
vals. The curious were given to understand 
that Haddonfield had a decided attraction 
(feminine gender) for Albie. So much so that 
his idea of going home for a week-end came to 
mean leaving College Thursday and coming 
back Tuesday. By Wednesday he was 
laying plans for the next week-end. However, 
by senior year Al had reformed his exag- 
gerated ideas on such matters and had 
returned to the normal conception of a 
week-end.

JOHN BYRON LaDT E, JR.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS 

Born 1911 

Entered from Chicago Latin School in 19-28 

THE last surviving member of the Jarratt 
League for the suppression of all squaws 
on the reservation . . . The last surviving 
member of the Haverford College Bar Asso- 
ciation. The last rose of summer, that's 
what he looks like when he gets up in the 
morning (or if he has gone to bed excep- 
tionally late, when he gets up in the after- 
noon) . . . The last — that is our idea of 
Johnny. He stands for a generation that is 
passing, that is past, which now that he is 
graduating is no more. 

"Honorable Mention in German — JOHN 
B. LaDUE. " So read the commencement 
program at the end of freshman year. But 
alas! we hear no more of it in the years that 
follow. John is undoubtedly one of the 
type referred to by Uncle Billy, when he 



described the intellectual genius who, at the 
age of twenty, has burned himself out through 
overstudy. 

Passing over John's other scholastic accom- 
plishments, we come to John's extra-curricu- 
lar performances. He was a journalist par 
excellence and a football manager of distinc- 
tion. But this is all very unimportant. John's 
real reputation was for his hospitality. He 
was a better host than he knew, or than he 
cared to be. For ninth entry, downstairs on 
the right was the scene of an almost eternal 
game of contract. The old maestro. Professor 
LaDue, was not always playing, but that did 
not prevent the disciples of Culbertson from 
foregathering in his absence. 

But we have not as yet touched on John's 
relationships with the fair sex. We were 
puzzled about that so we asked him. "A hit 
with the parents, a flop with the daughters, " 
was the terse reply. And we congratulated 
him, for he was one up on the rest of us, who 
find the parents also hard to handle.

COMEWHEKE in the immediate neigh- 
borhood of the colossal Fields tlie careful 
observer will notice a dark tliick form. Tliat, 
my friends is not "Toot's"' shadow hut 
"Lip", embryo doctor, higlipower salesman 
of pipes, class mugs and what have you, 
insistent renter of I -drive it cars, and famous 
as co-dictator and assistant boss of Merion. 

His greatest triumph was achieved at the 
Wilmington concert in Sophomore year 
where he and Job Taylor gave an unrivaled 
exhibition of tap-dacing in which both 
tumbled gracefully to the floor. The 64 
spectators, probably thinking it was part of 
the act, were not particularly surprised. 
But then they had ju.st listened to the In- 
strumental Club. 

Immortal fame and a position just slightly 
under Allendoerfer in the Hammer Club came 
to him at another concert. It was a dual af- 
fair and after the final curtain had fallen, our 
hero walked up to the exhausted Foley, 





slapped him fraternally on the back and 
with comforting smirk ventured. Uell, 

Giff, there's one Glee Club worse than ours 
anyway." The Swarthmore lad who had 
been congratulating our leader uttered an 
embarassed "excuse me " and walked meekly 
away. 

Lip is quite the psychologist. There is 
nothing more amusing than to li.sten to hira 
attempt to defend Freud. With words all 
over eleven syllables in length, he was often 
almost successful in convincing Dougie 
Steere that he knew what he was talking 
about despite the latter's conviction of the 
inaljility of others and of the infallibility of 
himself.

DAVIS RICE LOXCJAKER 

15 Montrose Avenue 

KIRKLYN, PA. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Haverford School in 19'2S. 

pOR THE first year of college, we watched 
Rice tapping his foot and fitfully scrawling 
queer signs in his notebook when he should 
have been listening to F( x ' in the Large Math 
Room, or absorbing Billy Reitzel's lectures. 
Many took it for a slight nervous disease and 
let it go at that, but now we know that a new 
Tiger Rag or .S7. Louis Blues was in the mak- 
ing. Ever since our Rhinie Cakewalk, when 
the harmonious trio of Longaker, Settle, 
and Read was introduced. Rice has made 
steady progress along this line, in evidence of 
which we mention the Haverfordians and with 
sHghtly less enthusiasm the Instrumental 
Club. Should this continue Rice might even 
become a crooner, who knows.' He certainly 
has the head of hair for such an enviable 
occupation. 

Rice is just as efficient on the athletic 



field as in the ballroom. In soccer he has 
been on the forward line for three seasons. 
Here we have the secret to his perpetual good 
humor. Whenever anything unpleasant 
happened, he just laughed and murmered to 
himself: "Well, that's all right, I'll take it 
out on the goalie this week. " And he did, 
as the Swarthmore game will bear witness. 

I>ongie spends most of his time in the 
Library in the neighborhood of some one 
hundred and twenty thousand books, and 
even opens one if nothing more inviting 
comes up. Otherwise he discusses current 
questions of importance with men of im- 
portance like Woodward or Strickler, or lets 
his childish nature get the better of him, 
and annoys the industrious occupants of the 
Baker-Pusey alcove by presenting them with 
one or two of the Library's best scrap-baskets 
in no too gentle fashion. 

Many people will ask where such accom- 
plishments as these will get a man when he 
launches out into the cold world of today. 
Well, Rice was no Phi Bete, we will have to 
admit, but he did finally pass Government 
I and our money is on him every time.

NKW AUK, \. J. 

Horn l!)l(l 

Entered from |{;irriii<,'er Hif,'li School in lO'iS. 

p\ Ali'l'S is one of those wlio lias persisted 
most faithfully in inakinj? life miserable 
for the "poor little hirds. " lie was an 
ardent disci])le of the Emlen-Hiatt ornitho- 
lof;ical jjuild and has particularly annoyed the 
smaller species (of which he wasn't afraid) 
by setting traps for them. 

Yes, we said "Species", thus lending the 
atmosphere of scientific biology, for Evarts is 
a biologist. You can find him in the Bug 
lab most any day — or night (we were going 
to say when we remembered certain occa- 
sions when Street took him up to Bryn 
Mawr.) There, in Sharpless, we mean, you 
will see him carefully sticking long pins 
through flies which obviously are already 
dead, or even pulling the insides out of a 
cricket, or a grasshopper, or a worm, or a 
dog-fish, or a lamellabrancheata. 

Such has been the trend of Evart's college 
career, which he has carried forth with an 
eager enthusiasm for all manner of impossible 
projects, which once aroused cannot be 
quelled by his pals' most potent objections. 

There is a story about the campus concern- 
ing a certain excursion on nearby waters, on 





which it is rvnnored that Evarts wasn't fish- 
ing. But uidess Dana has entirely corrupted 
this child of nature, we feel sure no one swam 
back. For he is a child of nature. One look 
at his foot wear shows that. The mocassins 
are the result of his summers in the AVhite 
Mountains where he carries tremendous 
loads of food to the Lake of the Clouds 
for starving Girl Scouts to eat. After packing 
over rocks, mocassins feel good; so he puts 
them on at College when he isn't working 
just out of force of habit; that is — he wears 
them all the time. 

The only thing that has kept him so free 
from the ordinary vices is the fact that he 
doesn't realize how good looking he is, but 
one year in New York after commencement 
should take care of that. We hope not at any 
rate.

ARCHIBALD McKIXLAY, IV

WAYNE, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Radnor High School in 19^8. 



He doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke, he 
doesn't even cuss, but my how these non- 
smoking, non-drinking, non-cussing birds 
can raise hell when they set themselves to the 
job. So it was that when Archie's stentorian 
voice rallied his first floor cohorts to a row- 
bottom, the worldly-wise third floor prepared 
waste-baskets and looked to its rotten fruit 
and water supply. Those were battles 
royal indeed. 

But now Archie has left us. We must admit 
that this fact is not an unmixed sorrow. For 
Archie was the vilest punster that our college 
ever knew. He would brave bitter vitupera- 
tion and even blows merely to have the 
pleasure of saying, "You don't like puns; 
how punny." Ha-ha-ha (laughter Archie's) . 

Archie is going to be a preacher and all 
we hope is that he doesn't one day so forget 
himself as to overturn the pulpit, yell ' 'row- 
bottom" and start to throw water at his 
respectful congregation. However, the pres- 
ence of mind produced by four years hard 
labor in Greek under Mr. Post should save 
him from any such critical situation. 

Greek Major. 



TO Archie must be attributed the dual 
honor of being the first father in our class 
and being our most ardent supporter of 
mediaeval fundamentalism. Once upon a 
time Archie lived in South Barclay where he 
had to read his Bible amid smoke, the chatter 
of a bull session, and the racket of the radio. 
He always had large stocks of food which 
endeared him to one and all. But all this is 
gone. At the close of Junior year Archie was 
married, and he deserted the crowds on the 
campus for more secluded surroundings. 
But Archie is not a man for solitude; he is 
happiest when surrounded by his friends; 
and so he has become a family man and given 
the class its first honorary member. 

The church militant is symbolized in him.

TIIK ii\firniary song? No. Only little 

Willie taking his Thnrsday afternoon 
shower in prc[)aralinn for I'cties lillle Latin 
"class". From whicli it should he implied 
that Bill's love is in the classics, and that he 
has the reputation of being llaverford's 
most original translator. 

His first year was endured under the super- 
vision of the Sclu-amm Air-Compressing 
Combine, and it is no wonder that the 
strain resulting from this peculiar combina- 
tion caused Bill to cut his mid-year exams. 
For this year and the next two, which he 
spent subduing the rampages on one Allen- 
doerfer, he was the earnest student, inspired 
with a desire to be one of those ideal Haver- 
fordians"of vigorous bodies, scholarly minds, 
strong characters, and a real religious ex- 
perience." 

But it was mere illusion. Bill's environ- 
ment had not been of the proper nature to 
bring out his tender nature, and Senior year 
he moved to Lloyd. Although officially an 
inmate of the first entry, he was a frequenter 
of the Sixth, and most important of all, he 
became a member of the cast of ' 'Romeo and 





Juliet." For three long years, Bill had re- 
frained from evil associations; and then, for 
shame, he met a girl. No longer the pious 
monk, no longer the paragon of scholastic 
effort, he made his visits to Bryn Mawr more 
frequent and more prolonged. The final 
chapter is still to be written to this epic 
romance, but our dough is on Miller. 

Bill has one serious fault — he works too 
hard. For instance, he will study something 
he already knows for hours for some silly 
quiz, on which he would get an A without 
writing a word because of his reputation. But 
he is a mine of information, and if ever asked 
any serious question, his inevitable comeback 
is:

PHILADELPHIA, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from West Philadelphia High School 
in 1928. 

^^l R tale is of a Horse, not any horse, but, 
you will note, one particular Horse, not to 
be in any way confused with others bearing the 
same name. Some deluded persons seem to 
be in a state of confusion about the 
matter, as the famous episode of the tennis 
court and the soccer score will bear witness! 
(If you haven't heard the story ask Syd 
Hunt.) 

Rhinie year, Syd Hunt harbored two un- 
fortunate day students. Sophomore year 
Syd lost his roomers, one to the campus, and 
one to Vin Morgan. This was the beginning 
of that famous firm of Morgan and Morgan, 
the most peculiar thing about which is the 
attitude of either partner toward the other. 



' 'If you value your health, don't be so rash as 
to think we're brothers, 'cause we're not and 
we don't even look alike," they say, a 
smothered smile of satisfaction on the lips of 
each of them. 

Horse, or Bob, if you prefer, is a running 
mate of Rudy in Petie's Play House, the 
Library, where under the guiding eye of 
Jean he sits with librarial dignity recalling 
that of a Maxwell or even a Leeds. 

Bob has attended most of the dances which 
have been thrown around this place for the 
last four years. His roommate claims he can 
never be found after midnight though he 
doesn't know where he goes, but we think 
that is mere nonsense and suggest that Vin 
by about that time is not particularly in- 
terested in the whereabouts of his straying 
roommate. 

Horse, starting soccer with Arlington's 
motley crew worked his way up to a scarlet 
and black striped jersey and the captaincy of 
that snappy aggregation, the Third Team, 
leading them to one of the most successful 
seasons they have had.

Born l!»l(l 

Kiitered from White I'lains Hi^'li Scliool in 
ItHS. 

LJAI.F a dozen times a day tor three years 
and a half lusty cries of "Store, Morgan, 
store " were wont to inform the inhabitants of 
Founders Hall that somewhere another cog in 
the machinery of the Co-op store had slipped 
and Vin must go and locate the difficulty. 
The Coop has been his pet and he has spent 
long hours of toil and had endless conferences 
with Bijur in the process of restoring it to an 
honorable condition. But now the store is 
no longer his, and he is seen around there 
only when he is surreptitiously taking ad- 
vantage of his private key to help himself to 
some goodies. 

But you would never take liim for a hard- 
headed business executive when on Sunday 
afternoons he used to snake himself out and in- 
vade West Philadelphia to waste eleven hours 
at a stretch. What a man! Or perhaps we 
should say, what a girl! And then he be- 
came call boy of the production of Romeo and 
Juliet and the trips to West Philly came to an 
abrupt conclusion, and Vin spent his Sundays 
(and also his Mondays, Wednesdays and 
Fridays; haunting the wilds of Bryn Mawr. 

There has been just one flisappointment in 





\ in's career at Haverford. And that was 
when in Rhinie year little Al made the hor- 
rible mistake of thinking that Horse and 
Vin were twins. \'in almost gave up the 
ghost. Although he finally recovered his 
self-respect by making it clear that he was not 
a twin, he never quite regained all his self- 
esteem, for some people still insist on believing 
that Vin and Horse are brothers. 

We understand that when Vin came to 
College he hadn't quite decided what career 
he would follow. But after he had met the 
wives of the professors of the Chem depart- 
ment, he decided that perhaps it paid to be a 
chemist. We hope yf)u'll not be disappointed, 
Vin!

ELLIS CARLTON OSGOOD 

3 South Richards Avenue 

VENTNOR, N. J. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Dickinson Seminary, 1928. 

THE scene is the Chemistry Laboratory; 
the time ahnost any afternoon; the char- 
acters, a number of earnest students of the 
noble science of the molecules. The room is 
pervaded with a certain air, not of hydrogen 
sulfide of chlorine, but of activity carried on 
to the accompaniment of music and song. (It 
is necessary to differentiate the two.) Sud- 
denly the sickening sound of breaking glass 
and spilling solutions (how valuable only a 
quantitative analyst knows) disturbs the 
peace, followed quickly by a stream of most 
unQuaker language. Osgood has broken 
something more. He seems to enjoy the 
sound of breaking glass— at least the fre- 
quency of its occurrence at his desk would 
tend to make one believe so. Otherwise he is 
a careful if somewhat impetuous and eccen- 
tric chemist but not, however, anywhere 



near being in the class of Bourne in this 
respect. 

' 'Oz"' is one of the members of the "coun- 
try club " group who insist that all who live on 
the campus proper are imbeciles and that the 
only true home for a Haverfordian is the 
' 'country club "' or Merion Hall as it is known 
to the readers of the college catalog. Rhinie 
year he roomed there and for the remaining 
years of his college course he has remained 
true to his first love. Senior year "Oz" 
made the bond firmer by taking another con- 
firmed Merionite for his wife. 

Outside of the Chem Lab. there are one or 
two great interests that absorb his time; 
one is his "fiddle" and the other is medicine. 
From this we see that he, also, belongs to 
that class of beings who are tolerated but not 
entirely respected by the true chemists; 
namely, the "pre-meds". Incidentally he 
took some extra work in organic chemistry 
under Dr. Flosdorf's direction this year, 
which makes him — well you guess.

BARRETT PARKER 
876 Vose Avenue 

SOUTH ORANGE, N. J. 

Bom litOH 

Entered from Colnnil)!;! Jl\^\\ School in 19'2S. 

qARRIE is the one member of our class 
who takes things too seriously. He it 
the inalienable rights of Haverford freshmen, 
the high benefits to be derived from the 
Christian t'nion, the worth of the Peace 
Caravan, or the English Cliil) — he has his 
ideas which he sticks to with might and 
main. He does, however, have the unfortu- 
nate habit of expressing his views concerning 
the English department at the most in- 
auspicious of moments imaginable. 

Possibly a librarian would be in the best 
position to write Parker up. At least he is 
never at home in his entry, and he professes 
to spend most of his time keeping the Parker 
Chair of Sitting warm (opposite the Baker- 
Pusey alcove). Callers knock on his door: 

"Is Barrett around?" 

"Well," his roommates reply, "we think he 
sleeps here, but we're not sure. He might be 
back when the library closes its doors unless 
there is an English Club practice. ' 

Perhaps because of his prolonged daily 
absence, Barry is so loath to get up. But 
once up, he cannot depart for breakfast until 
he has made himself into a perfect example of 
sartorial perfection with coat, tie, an<l liair 





all in proper place. We are quite sure that 
it is he who wakes us up when he takes his 
morning shower at about six-forty-five. 
.\11 of this because he at one time wished to 
reform Haverfordians and make them dress 
like gentlemen. Though our William's new 
derby may be attributable to Barry's letter to 
the Xeirg, we have noticed no change in 
ninth entry's attire. 

Engle tells us the only defect in Barry's 
otherwise noble character is his love for puns, 
which are terrible we admit; howev^er we 
think Bob is just jealous and a bit preju- 
diced on this subject. But dress Barrett up 
in a Shakespearian costume so that his puns 
are respectable and honored, and he is right 
in his element.

THOMAS ISAAC POTTS 
254 West Walnut Lane 

GERMANTOWX, PHILA., PA. 

Born 1909 

Entered from Germantown Friends' School in 
1928. 

I IKE all great men, Tom has some eccen- 
tricities which can be adequately de- 
scribed only as Poft.iiams. One of the re- 
markable features of his nature is his chang- 
ing fancy for clothing. Most of the time he 
prefers to be seen in informal attire, which 
usually consists of a blue work shirt, an old 
black sweater, and a pair of white trousers, 
that are not so white, girded by a strip of 
green cloth, a material reminder of Rhinie 
year, which Potts has carefully preserved 
throughout his college career. Occasionally 
he dons a gorgeous shirt of bright green hue in 
an attempt to keep up with younger brother 
Cy and his equally gorgeous red abomination. 
In the domestic atmosphere of the dormi- 
tory one sees Tom issue forth from his inner 
sanctum arrayed only in an ancient and 

124 



decrepit felt hat, a towel neatly arranged 
about his middle, and carrying a cane in his 
hand. This is worn for evening dress, and is 
sometimes accompanied by an empty corn- 
cob pipe on which he chews with great vigor. 
When he retires on cold cold nights, however, 
he amasses socks, sweaters, sweatshirts, 
bathrobes, overcoats and arctics which he 
puts on in a mad eft'ort to keep warm. 

Members of four women's colleges vie for 
the changing affection of our hero who of 
late has overcome an aversion to the gentle 
art of dancing. He has attended our few 
dances with a regularity surprising for the 
staid and sober Quaker who kept the lethargic 
Christian Union alive so long that at the 
date of writing it still utters an occasional 
death groan. 

Beginning his college days with Brinton as 
a soul and roommate, Tom completed them 
by taking Elkinton and Hunt under his ex- 
tensive wing in third entry which, save for a 
few dubious individuals on the second floor, 
became Quaker en masse. 

As fullback on the soccer team, Tom 
showed an eager desire to trade places with 
Lontiie and play center-forward which he did 
on numerous occasions in practice. He 
wanted to get some pot-shots at the goal we 
suppose.

pil-L POWELL, we feel reasoiiaLly sure, Is 
tlie person par excellence vvlio occasioned 
our William's remark in Collection one fair 
Tuesday morning; (or was it Friday) that lie 
"knew who was playirifj cards". At any 
rate it is a fact that Bill has a great love for 
bridge and has of late shifted his affections 
from auction to contract. He also takes part 
in another variety of card game which has 
received iiaTnes ranging from blip to grob.sch. 

Though he has roomed off campus for his 
four years, he is a familiar figure in the third 
entry or wherever Bill Wray, Pewee Roberts 
and Ray Webb have held out. He is notable 
for his black felt hat which he wears the day 
through. This is sometimes replaced by a 
queer contraption made of white duck which 
is in slightly better concord with his inevit- 
able white shoes. His pockets are usually 
full to overflowing with candy delicacies 
which he is eager to offer to his companions. 





Powell, however, visits third entry, up- 
stairs on the left, not for the purpose of work. 
Oh, dear no! But he indulges in cards, in 
cigarettes of the Chesterfield variety and in 
listening to the radio which is going from 
dawn to midnight there, making his contri- 
bution to the conversation in the form of 
terse epigramatic statements which are 
a propos. None the less he has been known to 
spend long hours in the suite immersed in the 
mysteries of (ierman A or Astronomy when 
the boys were not there, and he had good 
reason to believe that they would stay away 
for a while. 

There is a rumor afloat to the effect that 
our hero is even more ticklish than that most 
ticklish of ticklish creatures. Bill Wray, and 
that he resents any attempt at such intimate 
approach which may be made even by his 
best friends.

WILLIAM WEBB PLSEY, III 

1605 Broome Street 

WILMINGTON, DEL. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Wilmington Friends' School in 
1928. 

|_jOW about a half hour of bridge?" is 
heard with the accompanying sounds of 
the wrapper being sloughed of? Bill's in- 
separable package of gum. The purchase of 
this elastic wad is the only thin^ which can 
delay Bill in his precipitous flight to the 
Eighth Entry after lunch in his vain effort 
to stretch out the short half hour with Cul- 
bertson. 

However, Bill's sporting activities are by 
no means limited to such sedentary pursuits 
as bridge. How much the soccer squad was 
strengthened by his work as a halfback was 
attested after the games by the nursing of 
shins and ankles. In the spring managerial 
duties were combined with active ones on 
the court. In the latter, his renowned 



intellect was no doubt responsible for the 
deadly precision of his placements. 

To omit mention of Bill's intellectual 
capacities would be unpardonable. His 
devotion to the gods who preside over studies 
is best shown by the rapid manner in which 
he consumes work. Bill has always com- 
pleted the required work for the week far, 
far in advance. The dogged determination 
with which he sets out to do this is perfectly 
calculated to have a most depressing effect 
on his weaker brethren. But most notice- 
able of all is the respect which profs pay 
him (Uncle Billy excepted). It is not infre- 
quent to hear a professor's hasty and sub- 
servient query, ' 'What do you think of that, 
Mr. Pusey.^", after he has noticed Pusey's 
sardonic grin at some unauthenticated 
statement. With that blush of his which 
greatly assists the reprimanded prof to re- 
gain his shattered dignity, we learn from Bill 
that on page 462 of such and such a book the 
facts are thus and so. We can't imagine 
any of Bill's future pupils being able to turn 
the tide in the opposite direction.

JOSEPH HHOADS, JR. 
1105 Franklin Street 

WILMINCTON, I)KL. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Westtown School in 1!)"2S. 
I ADIES and Gentlemen, may we introduce 
to you 19.'5'2'.s first married man. Allow 
us to inform you that Mr. Rhoads set a new 
low record by slipping at the end of his 
Sophomore year. This, however, was to be 
expected, since never in all our long and 
varied experience, have we seen in his first 
two years at this institution such an erotic 
young man. At the slightest excuse, nay, 
without any excuse at all, he would hike 
down to the P. and W. and wend the long 
weary way to Westtown, the center of attrac- 
tion. 

However, all things must end, and our hero 
took the irrevocable step one nice June 
afternoon. Then, ladies and gentlemen, we 
snickered to ourselves, expecting his in- 
terest in college to decline, his grades to fall, 
and the list of cuts to lengthen. But did this 
occur.^ No! Our faith in human nature 
was shattered. Marks gradually rose to the 
eenith, even under the shattering fire of the 
Doll and the Baron. Rufus and Dougie can 
point with satisfaction to the added incentive 
by more complete self-realization. Others 
desirous of the same performance can take 
Joe as a shining example and a good argument 
to put up to the folks. Several of our class, 
needless to say, have already done so. 

At college Joe is noted for a bird of a 
straight left to the nose, which he has been 
known to use when socked unexpectedly on 



VCKTESs 





either ear with an orange or other round 
oVjjects. His chief interest at the present 
time is in furs, being extremely fond of 
"tetching off" a squirrel or two from his 
back window. At one time a fast reckless 
driver, now he guides his chariot down the 
road sedately and conservatively as he comes 
from Westtown, as a family man should (or 
perhaps the memory of a certain ^13.50 and 
costs has something to do with it.) 

The temptation to predict is irresistible. 
We can see him in a later year, leaning back 
in his office chair, his feet on the desk, a foul 
smelling cigar in his mouth, his thumbs in his 
vest, having ju.st completed a couple of 
mergers and bought a lot of rising stock, 
surrounded by a number of graphs and 
charts: he reaches for the telephone and 
calls up his wife saying: "Sorry, won't be 
home for supper. Going south for a couple 
of days for the quail shooting."

ARTHIR SAVERY ROBERTS 

75 W. LaCrosse Avenue 
Lansdowxe, Pa. 
Born, 1910 

Entered from Westtown School, 1928. 

TO "PEEWEE" goes the distinction of 
having the most widely known nickname 
in our class, being known to one and all 
simply as "Peewee". But then this is only 
to be expected, for anyone can see at a glance 
the appropriateness of the term and will 
probably be led to wonder if this wee bit of a 
fellow is really a Senior in college. 

But lest the above tend to give a false im- 
pression of "Peewee" we hasten to point out 
that what he lacked in size was made up for in 
spirit and an aggressiveness that enabled 
him to hold down a varsity position on our 
soccer team, and score many an important 
goal during the past three years. 

At this point we can't refrain from uttering 
that old bromide about the two types of 



Quaker, those of mulatto type, and just 
Quakers. And in justice to our comrade we 
hasten to add that he belongs to the species 
of lighter hue. This is proven only too well 
liy his interest in what one might term the 
lighter and more frivolous side of life, for 
Peewee is first, last, and always a "ladies' 
man." This may be due in part to the fact 
that he is a Westtonian, which in turn 
probably accounts for numerous week-end 
trips to Westtown, but not for intermittent 
journeys to Swarthmore, Jenkintown, and 
neighboring points, which cause some of the 
rest of us to wonder just what is his power of 
women. 

Back in Rhinie year Peewee roomed with 
Bill Wray and one of the daily rituals of these 
two was what we shall euphemistically call 
"Field Day". Well do we remember trying 
to study while the shrill anguished cries of 
help emanated from our masochist friend 
Bill.

WSKT CIIKSTEK, F.V. 

Born 1911 

Entered from West Clicster High Scliool in 
1948. 

CCIIUAMMIE, as he is known in fifth entry 
and elsewhere, hails from the good old 
Quaker town of West Chester, and brought 
with him from tliat thriving metropolis some 
football knowledge and Hill Miller. The 
former has made him quite an asset on the 
football field for four years. The latter — well, 
Bill majored in Latin. 

If any of our readers should want to hear 
the advantages of the Schrantrn Air Com- 
pressor, which is no doubt a subject of vital 
interest, let him mention casually to Harold 
that such and such a compressor far exceeds 
anything of its kind anywhere. Just let him, 
we say, and beguiled by Schrammie's smooth 
talk he will immediately send in an order for 
at least five of Harold's machines. 

"Julian," as he does not like to be called, 
is one of those engineers — a fact which may 
go a long way toward explaining why he 
astonished the academic world, and probably 
himself, by tying Walton with a 91 something 





for a quarter average way back in Sophomore 
year. Schrammie, however, puts his engi- 
neering talents to more useful purposes and 
got himself a heap of free rides on the new 
P. and W. cars in an attempt to discover 
what makes the wheels go round. His pride 
and joy is the Engineering Club whose meet- 
ings generally degenerate into an argument 
of Schramm vs. Rittenhouse with the former 
always on top. 

To look at his rugged exterior no one would 
guess that Harold has a soul, a passionate, 
tender, yearning nature. And perhaps he 
has none (for who of us mere men can really 
understand him) ; yet we feel sure that there 
must be some such basis because of his evi- 
dent and faithful devotion to a single student 
at the West Chester State Teachers' College. 
But don't ask Schrammie to explain. You 
are likely to get a pillow in your face.

The one really startling and theatrical 
event in Wally's career occurred in Sopho- 
more year. He had gotten back to Merion 
late one evening after one of his musical 
debauches in the big city. A seemingly 
frightened group of his classmates met him 
with the news that a strange man, pre- 
sumably a stray drunk, was asleep in his 
bed. When a summary investigation by one 
of the more adventurous Merionites an- 
nounced that the man appeared to be dead, 
Wally sprang into action. He at once began 
to phone for the police, and brought de- 
tachments from as far as Xorristown. The 
conspirators secretly retired, leaving Wally 
alone to face the police — and a carefully 
manufactured dummy! 

One of Wally's chief diversions for the past 
few years has been to entertain the pleasant 
thought that someday he would go over and 
argue Arlington (Abdominal Strenth) Evans 
into a realization of the fact that he really 
did pass off the exam in Gym la. As we go to 
press, we learn with joy that he has finally 
gathered together the requisite energy for 
this ordeal, and that this blot on his 'scutch- 
eon is now permanently erased. 



\y /HEN better records are brought to the 
Haverford campus, Scudder will bring 
them." So might the proverb run, indeed, for 
Wally's Victrola has done more for the musical 
enlightenment of the campus (as well as being 
the cause of profuse profanity on sundry 
occasions) than all the music courses com- 
bined. But Wally has other accomplish- 
ments as well. He possesses an oral wind 
percussion which can be heard for great 
distances. Scudder' s chief extra-curricular 
activity has been to furnish transportation 
for all Bryn Mawrites participating in Eng- 
lish Club functions. He was, in fact, one of 
the founders of the Club and once even took 
the part of a scholar in "Faustus". — the 
.>nly time, he proudly claims, he ever played 
that role.

THE (iisc-ipic ..f I'lato, Krcu.i iiiid Hallylu... 

— tiie idealist of second entry and tlie 
college comforter is fast approaehinj; tlie 
cold world of realities. Enter Jack Settle 
with a two-days' growth of what he so opti- 
mistically calls beard, a (jnizzical smile and 
brimfull of wise cracks, torts and retorts. 
Pop's stellar fullback and kicker de luxe is 
once more bound for the delightfully home- 
like Jenkintown — one more psychological 
test for the master. 

Jack has successfully worried his way 
through college. First night at college he 
worried about the absence of his jaundiced 
roommate and having thus got the habit he 
has been worrying ever since. They agree on 
nothing, they argue on everything and J. C. 
is home a good part of the time. Neverthe- 
less they get along splendidly. Settle argues 
for the sake of developing his mind and, or, 
as he so aptly phrases it, "Argumentation is 
the key to progress, agreement retards." 

During Rhinie year Jack was thrown into 
the company of a strange and queer collection 
of undergraduates. In North Barclay were 
Zephyr, Miller, Feroe, Schramm, Kohn, 
P. V. Lawrence, Bourne and Bijur. It was 
here that the famous Hollander-Settle entente 
was first formed and it was here that the 





F(x) alarm clock escapade was first thought 
out. It was here that Jack developed his 
tendencies to stay up until the wee hours of 
the morning discussing sex and other im- 
portant matters. Here in the atmosphere of 
vice and blatant immorality, Settle learned 
the true value of will power. It was not 
until Senior year tliat Jack forgot and began 
to resort to mild swearing, extensive smoking 
and wide use of a private phone. 

He is usually on the verge of another 
violent spell of going home (and we don't 
mean Frankford) and whenever you see him 
mooning, you can be sure he is trying to 
organize another plan of attack for the 
week-end . . .

\YVHEX the firm of Sipple and Zapp was 
organized back in Rhinie year, it 
brought a smile to our lips due to the pecu- 
liarity of the partners' respective names. 
However, their menagt' has successfully 
weathered all the tempests of college life for 
four years of North Barclay and New Lloyd. 
These two seem to be of great comfort and 
encouragement to one another, for they 
have both pulled down all sorts of high 
grades. Bill says his greatest claim to 
fame is that he beat Carl in averages for a 
cjuarter sometime back in the hazy past. 

With his Alma Mater's golf team he 
went through a season's arduous divot- 
smacking only to miss his own initiation into 
the aged and respected society of Phi Beta 
Kappa because of a golf-match. In fact, he 



received the glad news in his own unagitated 
manner long after that ill-starred match was 
over. To us to whom golf is a Scottish 
mystery allied to Masonry and Druidism, 
Bill always seemed to be taking a delight in 
the game which would more than recompense 
him for missing his initiation. Once in a 
while the ball would go far to the right and his 
lips would move as though in prayer, thank- 
ing the Deity, no doubt, for permitting 
so beautiful a curve. 

To his glory let it be said that he offered 
himself up to take over the managership of 
the Ilaverfordian from Allendoerfer. Bill 
is already showing signs of wear and tear, and 
we expect to be able to pick out the white 
from his beautiful brown hair before the time 
he gets every bill paid. 

Sipple has a very subtle sense of humor, 
and is, at times, almost as clever as Herb 
Bijur thinks himself to be. We can hardly 
tell if Bill is kidding or if he's kidding. 
Lsually, however, we think he's kidding. 
At any rate he has imparted us some ideas up 
in that corner room in North which if taken 
seriously would put even Cappy Bourne to 
shame.

been with us; for three and a half lonj,' 
years we liad known him to he a (|uiet, un- 
assuming, (■((iiscientinus fellow and let it goat 
that. But then we all took Ethics and Ilufie 
recommended that we write him a thesis, 
wiiereupon Cuy <lecided that the hour had 
come when he was to rise above the common 
herd, to do his masterpiece. And every 
night for weeks the midnight oil was burned 
and Smiley delved and delved and finally 
there appeared — we pause to gather strength 
to stand the shock — a fifty-two-page account 
of his researches. A. K.'s name is made, and 
Dougie's eyes are ruined; but small matter, 
another contribution to the world's knowl- 
edge has taken place. 

In addition to his great love for "Self- 
realization "' Cuy has but one fault and that is 
his exaggerated love of nature. We do not 
mind if he cheerfully helps our little feathered 
friends in leading useful and helpful exist- 
ences. AVe look with approval on the vari- 
ous Field Club activities, and we do not even 





object if hede cat and de-squirrel the campus 
in the company of a Jopson or a Cadbury. 
Nay, these are most commendable pas- 
times. It does, however, offend our sensi- 
tive natures to have the booty from the expe- 
dition brought to us to be admired and 
then be dissected before our very noses just 
as we are on the way to supper. But Cuy 
is an expert and to those lucky members of 
the Field Club his demonstrations are the 
highest form of art. 

Imagine our surprise when Al purchased 
an auto — a Ford roadster right in the middle 
of his Senior year. We don't know whether 
he expects to get more and more of these 
Voegelfeinde, the felines, or whether it is not 
connected in some vague way with Cuy's 
secret and mysterious visits to West Chester 
every other week-end or so.

Born 1910 

Entered from St. Alhans School 1928. 

\y /ITH the decea.se of (ieneral Wayne, that 
dear old benefactor of Ilaverford 
undergraduates in times gone by, rosy visions 
of the future came tumbling down about the 
ears of our Frankie. Now that that great 
motivating factor in the life of the com- 
munity had been placed in the discard, 
Frankie, under the influence of his buddy, 
Fields, turned to football for refuge and 
solace. All went well till he finally fell before 
the onslaught of that devastating disease, 
voluntary inertia. But it would be hopeless 
to attempt to cover all of Frankie's career, 
inasmuch as there are countless chapters, 
variously entitled, for example, Elizabeth, 
Mush, Licia, etc., etc. Hence it may be well 
to content ourselves with one part. 



All through the kaleidoscopic career of our 
adipose Casanova runs the underlying motif 
of the tragedy of Sue (better known as 
Susie), (l) During these four hectic years, 
Susie, though forgotten was not gone. She 
alone stuck to Frank through thick and thin 
(somewhat of a contradiction in terms), and 
mutely plead with him to forsake the gilded 
pleasures of the gay world and come back to 
her. Now, at the very last moment, it is a 
great pleasure to be able to announce that 
Frankie has at last seen the error of his ways, 
the injustice that he was doing to Susie. He 
has settled down to a quiet and restful life. 
Susie and he spend the evenings at home or 
at the movies content to let the rest of the 
world go by. Never does he go out without 
lier, and such fidelity does he show that we 
are sure she will never abandon him. We 
leave the happy pair on the swing in a softly 
lighted rooms in fourth entry whose preg- 
nant silence is broken only by the gentle 
creaking of the swaying swing and an occa- 
sional stentorian eructation from Frankie 
. . . curtain!

^OME on, Ev, let's go to Bryn Mawr. 
Ciot a nickel?"' (To he heard every other 
night at 9:30). Yes, Daim is always ready to 
call Rryn Alawr '•297. \()u"d be surprised 
what a snake in the grass he is behind his 
serions and philosophical coinitenanoe. You 
know Flannel caught him jumping out of his 
window in Lloyd one night in junior year, 
thinking he had his first robber. We suggest, 
that he continue to keep talis on our "Axel"' 
and liis nightly escapades. Dana even had to 
take a woman along on an all-day hike out to 
Valley Forge. "What's the use of going 
without one? " says he. 

In all seriousness, we think Dana is one of 
the most promising men in the class. Slow, 
but sure; very level-headed and always 
dependable; and this dependability inspires 
our confidence. He is solid to the core. He is 
also somewhat of a philosopher — not that 
he has taken as many of Dougie's courses 
as some — but he likes to think about the 
serious sides of life. If you ask him a ques- 
tion he will stop a minute — the least bit as 





Dick Baker used to — and then give a clear 
and logical answer, whether you agree with it 
or not. 

In spite of this serious side to Dana, he is 
by no means hard to get along with. He is 
friendly with everybody, though a stranger 
hearing his deep croaking for the first time 
might not think so. Speaking of his voice, 
he has made two good uses of it: one as a 
valuable member of the (ilee Club, and the 
other as cheer leader. Remember him out 
there "doing his stuff" in the cold, cold wind 
all for Haverford? 

One of Dana"s ambitions is to cut our 
throats, meaning simply that he belongs to 
that great group in our class who are going 
to be doctors. His other ambition is to 
dissect and mount the bones of a skunk. 
We wish him luck.

Vy/HAT are we doing tonight. " is 
"Strick's" usual way of greeting one at 
dinner. When the occasion is a momentous 
one Charley will vary his usual method of 
salutation and ask, "What's on for tonight." 
Movies, musical comedies and revues are his 
specialities. However of late "Strick" 
has contented himself with the great game of 
bridge as an evening's diversion. We predict 
that he will soon rise to the top of the bridge- 
playing world if he will but throw away the 
Official Book and buy a Culbertson. Already 
he has mastered the technical language of the 
sport and we will long remember his "well, 
de bull got dat one,"' or "tird spade " in tone 
of studied nonchalance. 

In the light of the above it is of theoretical 



though not empirical interest to note that 
one time in the distant past it was rumored 
that he spent an entire evening in the Library. 
No evidence has been discovered to date, 
however, that will substantiate the report. 
Which all goes to show that Dougie was 
right when he said that slander spreads. 

As a Freshman, Charlie roomed with 
George Gerenbeck in Founders, as a Sopho- 
more, Charlie roomed with George Gerenbeck 
in South Barclay. As a Junior, Charlie 
roomed with George Gerenbeck in South 
Lloyd. As a Senior, Charlie roomed with 
George Gerenbeck in North Lloyd. All of 
which goes to prove that you can't teach an 
old dog new tricks. For two years "Strick" 
has been master and pilot of the good ship 
S 23-10. Many a stormy voyage has that 
sturdy vessel endured, under the guidance of 
its pilot and first mate Gerenbeck. 

Strickler has followed the fortunes of 
neighboring school teams with enthusiasm 
unequaled, during his collegiate stay and is in 
the deepest abyss of dejection when the 
boys don't come through for him. 

Charles admits that he is going to be a 
broker, but the current depression is sending 
him to Penn for a year, so that he can learn 
the racket. Let a word to the wise be 
sufficient: Don't buy any stock he recom- 
mends. It's sure to go down.

A 1 <'l'STrS CRAIG succor, known as 
Henny to his public, and as "tlie man 
wlio knows no pain" to liis more intimate 
associates, has been wasting his time here at 
College when he might have been spending it 
more profital)ly in a side-show, showing 
amazed spectators how easy it is to drive a 
three-inch pin tlirough a bared leg with a 
sledge hammer. 

Although our hero is quite jealous of his 
topper, he is not at all adverse to sharing his 
many honors with otliers. As charter member 
of the "Love Lifted Me Club" (a long hard 
pull, at that) he has generously taken into his 
care that mighty man of brawn, John R. 
Watkins. These two exhort degenerate 
Haverfordians to come back to the paths of 
righteousness, using as a horrid example of 
loose living none other than our pal, the 
"Senator", 

"Little Angie of the Roman Nose," as 
he might be called, is a man of mystery. 
Rumor has it that his topper and radio cost 
twenty bucks apiece, his slide rule some 
fifteen, and shouldn't be thrown around. 
He spends hours writing letters to a certain 





young lady abroad. Perhaps that is an 
eflfort to keep the damsel's thoughts from 
dwelling on titled Europeans. Our motto 
has always been "America and America's 
money for America". Stick to it, Benny! 
But beyond this he is a closed book. The 
longer you know him, the less you know him. 

Benny says he's as pure as the driven snow. 
There is still one imexplained incident up 
in Canada that puzzles us, and have you 
ever seen the snow out in Pittsburgh.^ 

As manager of soccer, Craig was more or 
less (ask him and then a few of .the players 
for an explanation of this expression) respon- 
sible for the success of the team during the 
past season. And then, gentle reader, the 
little gold soccer ball that he now wears is 
his pride and joy — God bless his little heart.

According to his own reports, Ed hails from 
parts "whar" literal swimming in sweat is 
typical of a mild summer, and "whar" 
the eating of one's neighbors throughout 
the ordinary snow-bound winters gives patent 
proof of the survival-of-the-fittest theory. 

Every now and then a woman interrupts 
an otherwise exclusively virile outlook. On 
such occasions he stoutly maintains that 
"the champion feels confident," though, as a 
matter of fact, the "champ's" knees tend to 
be at odds with one another — they actually 
come to blows. You see, even E. A. cannot 
resort to bayonets and such with proper 
effect in such a case, so he falls back on a 
psychological approach, and asks, "Where 
was Steve Brody when he jumped off the 
bridge? "' Then, while this is being pondered 
over, the "champion" covers up, and mar- 
shalling scattered forces, tries to deduce more 
potential witticisms conducive to raucous 
results. But regardless of how things turn 
out, in any situation whatever, there is 
always one dependable conclusion: "The 
champion feels confident."

/^F COURSE, the best way to do it, to get

gentlemen, that's the way I'd put it, 'cause 
all you have to do is stick the thing in and 
push and pull in a general westerly direction. 
Besides playing hell with your opponent's 
entrails, you derive entertainment from the 
spectacle of his facial contortions — why just 
imagine the expressions prompted by having 
your liver worked upon by a band-saw 
crudely applied — ". Here the already

I ri"I'LK was heard or seen by ns of this 
(lashiiif; l>rnnette of onr class duriiifj his 
first year at llaverford. 'IMiis resulted from a 
nundjer of reasons, ehief of whieh were that 
he entered with the Class of 193;? and roomed 
in the darkest cell in Founders (otherwise 
known as number twelve). However l)y the 
beginning of his second year, he had con- 
vinced the I'nde that he should be allowed to 
forsake his companions of the Class of 1933 
and throw in his lot with our class 

From that time on all of us have known 
him, chiefly because of his great capacity to 
twist up his fingers in philosophy class in the 
inimitable way exemplified by a certain 
getter-to-grips- with reality. Truly, though, 
he is not only a finger-twisting philosopher, 
but a poet and playwright besides. For 
instance, he can write poetry in Arabic 
which sounds like a Western Pennsylvania 
buzz-saw as he reels it off and tries to con- 





vince us (even though we can't understand a 
word of it) that it has the rhythm of Shake- 
speare's blank verse and the beauty of Milton. 
He got tired of poetry this last spring, how- 
ever, and turned his attention to writing 
plays. 

Besides all these things about Wadi', 
Haverford has done a lot for him, which he 
never ceases to talk about. Chief of these 
benefits has been his contact with the patron 
saint of Quakerism, and so we feel sure that 
with the training Wadi' has received at 
Haverford in Philosophy, History, poetry 
writing, playwriting, and speech making, 
Ramallah School in Palestine is destined to 
have on her faculty from this time forth a 
man who in every way will worthily repre- 
sent both her and Haverford.

JOB TAYLOR, II 

1305 Singer Place 

WILKINSBURG, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Shady Side Academy in 19-28. 

IN THE spring of 1928, Jobie was offered the 
choice of going either to work or to Haver- 
ford. In the fall of that same year, strangely 
enough, we found him comfortably (!■') 
established in the "barn,"' a rebellious 
subject of "King" Miller and his henchmen. 
The Quaker calm of Founders was thereafter 
often and rudely shattered by the Rabelaisian 
outbursts of Taylor when he returned from 
class to find his quarters in chaos. Rapid and 
startling was the change from the shy, 
cherubic-looking youth into the romantic 
figure, which, under expert tutelage, he soon 
attained, of the polished man about town. 
During this latter period Jobie was seldom in 
evidence on the campus, but when we were 
favored with a visit, we caught a glimpse of 
Joe College at his best. \\ ho can ever forget 



that blazer, with the pearly flannels and the 
brilliant cravat? 

Truth to tell, the one vital bond that united 
Job to Haverford was the gymnasium. Ye 
who have seen him perform on the parallel 
bars must admit, as Job does himself, that he 
is without a peer in this art. It was in this 
same hallowed spot that he gave the local 
girls a break with his polished dancing, and 
beyond the shadow of a doubt it was here that 
was first conceived the noble vision of that 
now famous tap-dancing team of Taylor and 
Lipsitz. 

But all this is now past and gone and for 
our senior year was reserved the most striking 
metamorphosis of all. Having seen all there 
was to see and having done all there was to 
do. Job decided that "life is but a sorry 
game at best" — and reformed. Whether he 
will stick to the straight and narrow is still 
an open question — but if you're placing any 
bets don't be deceived by that innocent and 
cherubic countenance!

IF YOU really want to stir up a deep-seated 
and abidiuf^ resentment in Phil's heart, 
ask him what he thinks of the "Xo Parking" 
sign in back of Lloyd Hall. He unquestion- 
ably has acquired the unique distinction 
(not honor) of having his car towed away 
twice by the police authorities at six dollars 
per tow. We also seem to recall some inci- 
dent down on Lancaster Pike in front of 
Whitehall when Phil had another unfortu- 
nate experience with his car. 

Phil is naturally quite reticent and will 
not volunteer information unless he is sure 
that it is desired. That is an excellent trait. 
But one thing we always desired information 
on was his trip to Cuba and INIexico last 
summer. It seems hardly possible that Phil 
and Henry Henderson could have spent the 
summer batting around down there without 
having some experiences worth relating. 



<rs> 





What is more they did have experiences 
worth relating, or else the writer of this — 
obituary, shall I say — is a rather gullible 
soul. 

One of the "playboys of Merion" was 
Phil during his first years at College. But 
then he saw the light and realizing that one 
must needs study if one is going to get in 
medical school we find the serious student 
beginning to assert itself. But the girls just 
couldn't seem to forget him. Result: when- 
ever the phone rings and a plaintive female 
voice timidly asks for someone, it is Phil 
Wagner. Otherwise it is Bill Wagrter she is 
asking for. 

It remains to be said that Phil Wagner and 
Henry Henderson have always been the best 
of friends, through choice. Now they are 
going to have to get along together whether 
they like it or not. Henry is marrying Phil's 
sister, and our Philip is thus acquiring a 
brother-in-law-classmate.

Entered from Germantown High School in 

1928. 
THE scene is laid in 6 College Circle or in 

Sexth entry (it little matters which), a 
half-dozen or so undergraduates lounge 
lazily about balancing tea cups on their 
knees and enjoying the benefits of high class 
conversation (so it is purported). A social 
occasion? Yes, but more than that — Latin 
4 is having its weekly meeting. And at the 
center of this august assemblage is Frankie 
talking for all he is worth to keep the con- 
versation away from the lesson assigned. 
Perhaps these meetings are what caused him 
to forsake our Uncle Bill and to devote his 
efforts to the pursuit of the secrets of the 
Romans; or maybe he is just plain nuts. At 
any rate he majored in Latin. 

The latter hypothesis is hardly borne out 
by his discretion in choice of roommates. 
Realizing the insidious influence of Merion

Hall, Frank took up residence with Bob 
Haines Sophomore year and it is said that 
they still speak to each other on occasion. 
But Frank's masterpiece has been keeping 
Herbie on the straight and narrow these last 
two years. His ability to curb the follies of 
that eccentric fire-eater and still retain his 
sanity and power to pull down high averages 
is a feat unetiualled in the present college 
generation. 

Frank's versatile literary ability first 
directed itself toward the Xews; but when he 
discovered the horrible effect such work has 
on one's week-ends and on one's sleep he 
deserted it for that more leisurely publication. 
The Haverfordian. There he became asso- 
ciated with the Trinity (Amerman, Wilson, 
and Crolding to you), learned the peculiarities 
of Bryn Mawr, and became a sophisticated 
young gentleman. 

Frank prides himself on being the father of 
lost causes; for look at the list of activities 
below and you will see that he has been 
connected with none but the most languish-

I'l' IS with great f,'lce that we take tliis oj)- 
jxtrt unity to expose that wolf in sheep's 
elotiiing, Jaek Watkiiis, who for four long 
years has suecessfully passed himself ofl" as 
the least talkative person in the Class of 

Wl. Jaek's clam-like qualities puzzled us 
from the very beginning, and many were the 
fruitless hours spent in seeking some explana- 
tion of the mystery. At first we thought he 
might be just a small-town boy who was 
tongue-tied at the magnificent spectacle of 
Philadelphia's bright lights. This hypothe- 
sis met an early death, however, when we 
learned that he came from the great metrop- 
olis of Lansford, and was already an accom- 
plished man about town at a time when most 
of us were in our social swaddling clothes. 

But further research proved that Jack was 
not dumb (and we mean literally dumb). 
It was found that on occasion he has been 
known to talk for three hours straight, much 
to the exasperation of his listeners. If the 
gentle reader finds this unbelievable, just 
induce Jack to "tear a page"' from his life 
for you when you have hours to spare. 



I /\ Q o A. « I o >••> 





But Jack is an artist with brush as well as 
tongue — witness Walton's Scandal-Sheet and 
Ye Classe Record. One of his pet avoca- 
tions has been to visit the Philadelphia Zoo on 
any and all occasions where he is wont to 
gaze fondly at a tiger to which he affec- 
tionately refers as "Prince"'. Also from 
the amount of time he alleges to spend in the 
Aquarium, he should be Haverford's fore- 
most piscatorial expert. With the possible 
exception of Taylor, Jack is the only man 
who has ever been able to stop Arlington 
(Abdominal Strenthj Evans on a piece of 
gym apparatus. In closing we wOuld men- 
tion that Jack has a very fine Stetson hat 
which he is willing to sell at a great sacrifice 
— or at least so he has told us continually for 
the past four years. AVe wish he would take 
the hint!

planning some new tjpe of airfoil which will 
revolutionize the airplane industry. 

However, to catch Plug at his best, you 
must discuss bridge with him. He will point 
out for your edification, any number of 
examples where Lenz and Culbertson have 
both misplayed hands, going down three on a 
four bid, where a little slam was perfectly 
possiVile with the right kind of play. If cor- 
poration scholarships were awarded on the 
basis of knowledge of that honorable game, 
Ray would have been a sure winner for four 
years. We hope Ray realizes that our 
William knows all about those bad boys 
who waste their time playing cards. 

Plug has a great weakness for tearing off 
to the movies in the evenings. This form of 
divertisement is particularly popular with 
him on the night before an examination. He 
also has a weakness for the legitimate drama.

y^FTER the most exhaustive researches 
we have come to the conclusion that 
Ray Webb got his nickname "plug" on 
the football field. To one who has seen 
him, first as a line plunging half-back, and in 
his Senior year, as a doughty end, it will be 
clear that the name is well deserved. 

Ray has not confined his interests to foot- 
ball, alone, however, for he has been a mem- 
ber of "Pop's" track squad, hurling the 
weights, and in his ofT moments, attempting 
to throw a javelin through the steadfastest 
oak trees on the campus. 

Aside from his athletic interests, Ray has 
spent much of his time in the Physics lab, 
where his experiments with aeroplane wings 
caused him great consternation. Drop into

A. r.\l,l,, lanky, reserved looking' fellow is 
our friend Rudolph. \Vitli cheeks 
blessed with the delicate blush of a peach, 
and with the fuzz, too, Rudy is indeed one of 
the babies of the class. Just to look at his 
innocent exterior, one would never believe 
that he could be a nuisance. Hut beneath 
the placid, (juiet surface all is not so calm nor 
still as those unacc(uainted with Rudy would 
iniafiine. For when he decides that the 
Freshmen have become too impertinent, it is 
ten to one that some poor Rhinie will feel his 
wrath and be flooded out, or be sufl'ocated 
with the horrible stench of burning rubber. 

Now, if for any reason you should happen 
to be in Founders after all the good boys 
have gone to bed (we are not quite sure why 
anybody should ever visit Founders, let alone 
at such an hour) you are sure to hear, " Well 
now . . . you see it's this way, " and there 
is Rudy deeply engaged in coming to ' 'grips

life is all about, or else narrating for them the 
latest joke. Perhaps one of the unique things 
about Rudy is his laugh, or more properly, 
his guflfaw. Just tell Rudy a good joke, and 
all of Founders is sure to know just where he

Yet, if the truth be admitted, it is not 
because of these facts that Rudy is so well 
known to all of us. He has worked for over 
three years in the Library. Almost any 
night he can be found there, surrounded by 
math books and papers, sitting in all his 
majesty in the "Holy of Holies" directing 
befogged Rhinies in solving the mysteries of 
elusive books. Perhaps no one in college, 
not even Amy nor Petie knows so much 
about the Library as he does. 

One real question that arises everytime 
we think of this handsome young chap is how 
he manages to keep away from the women, 
and to keep them away from him. But we 
are not sure that he does. He always seems 
so anxious to get home to dear old Chambers-

STATEN ISLAND, N. Y. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Stateri Island Academy 1928. 

MO, I can't play bridge tonight, got some 
engine problems to do, " says our Robert 
and proceeds to misinstruct Sandy for an 
hour or two, so that he gets set many, many 
points. Bob's major in Engine is very diffi- 
cult. He is alleged to have spent a whole 
evening studying for an exam in it once. 

Back in Junior year, the beauty of his 
name as uttered by the worthies of the de- 
partment of Biblical Literature, seemed to 
have captivated the five members of the class 
who were still awake when roll was called to 
such a degree they answered "here " to a 
man to the mellifluous sounding "Woodard". 
Bob, it is needless to say, soon forgot to 
attend the class. 

That was long ago in the b.G. days — 
before he roomed with Gaskill. The Wood- 



ward of today is just a degree smoother than 
b.G., and more subtle too. We have noticed 
that it is extremely difficult to find him on 
the floor after about the second dance, 
despite the fact that he maintains he allows 
Jopson to take care of the Field Club activi- 
ties, which are Harry's forte. 

Bob's outside activities are multifarious 
and varied. In soccer he got his letter twice 
and tells wild tales about how he and Jimmie 
playing from Merion C.C. certainly set those 
Hill School boys down so hard on a particu- 
lar region of their anatomy that they couldn't 
tell their — that is, whether they were coming 
or going. W'e must not forget that "Way- 
ward"', as he is affectionately called, is at 
least the third most important executive of 
the Cap and Bells, nor that he thinks he is 
one of the best card players in New Lloyd, 
nor that he is a member of the Engine Club, 
a remarkable organization whose aim appears 
to be to further engineering and those who 
wish to show how interested they are in their 
work.

WILLIAM DKAN WHAY 
111 Orchard Place 

ITIIAC A, X. Y. 

Born 1910 

Entered from Ithaca Hif,'li School in 1928. 

^()M1N(; to Havcrford from the frozen 
wastes that enfringe the far-famed Lake 
Cayuga, Bill has never lost the outstanding; 
characteristic of all dwellers of isolated com- 
munities, to wit, the loyal and whole-heartei 
support of the home-town team. Say "Penn- 
sylvania" to him, and he will immediate!} 
start a lengthy argument on the merits of the 
"Big Red Avalanche" from Ithaca, the 
"Cornells" as he calls them. 

Bill started in Rhinie year iiy rooinint: 
with Peewee Roberts in Center, but as a 
Sophomore he decided to do some work anfl 
moved to South Barclay with Joe Rhodes. 
The latter spent most of his evenings in 
Westtown, and the inevitable result was that 
Bill fell into evil ways. Consorting with 
Gerenbeck and Strickler led to but one 
thing, and that was bridge. He soon became 
as adept in fulfilling a contract as at juggling 
Physics data, a field in which he is no slouch. 

When Rhodes joined the ranks of the 
married men. Bill heeded the call of the wild 
and returned once more to Center where 
aided by Peewee, Ray Webb, and Bill Powell, 
he soon managed to fill the second floor with 
cigarette butts, old copies of the Xeirs and 
much-used playing cards. It was at midyears 
that he finally ascended to the height of 





Sports Editor of the above mentioned publi- 
cation. From this position he has heaped 
coals of fire upon the heads of his underlings, 
descending when occasion demanded to en- 
gage in bitter verbal strife with Moos or 
Lentz. 

Bill managed to keep away from the 
"weaker" sex until his last year in our midst, 
but then the blow fell with startling sud- 
deness. She liked 'Camels", and "Wheezer", 
a hardened and devout Chesterfield fan, 
turned to the product of the A. J. Reynolds 
Co. with great alacrity. At the time of the 
Soph-Senior dance, he set an all-time record 
of twelve (12j calls to Swarthmore in 6 days, 
thus breaking by three, Gaskill's best efforts 
with the Bryn Mawr exchange.

JOHN ADAM ZAPP, JR. 

PAOLI, PA. 

Born 1911 

Entered from Tredyffrin-Ea.sttown High 
School in 19!28 

I ADIES and gentlemen, we have as our 
last exhibit, unless this is Friday, Satur- 
day, Sunday, or Monday morning, a visitor 
from the West. No, Oscar does not consider 
him a day student, but every Friday after- 
noon he feels the thrill of adventure and 
dashes down to the station, brief-case in 
hand, bound for Paoli. Over the week-end 
he spends his time in study and in entertain- 
ing his parents, until he has to return to 
Monday classes. 

Now that is his story — but it must be 
taken with a whole cellar of salt. We have 
noticed an attractive blonde who lives within 
a pleasant Sunday afternoon's walk of 
Paoli, and who has attended most of our 
dances in the last four years, and we are in- 



clined to think she has a lot to do with his 
week-end absences. 

Jack's biggest mistake was made in his 
Junior year, when he should have known 
better. There are plenty of snap courses 
left, so nobody is forced to take Physics, 
but apparently our Corporation Scholar of 
two years let his ambition get the better of 
his common sense, and he certainly plunged 
into the stiflFest courses he could find. It 
may have given him an education, but only a 
Rhodes Scholar can pull down 95's without a 
few soft spots in his schedule. 

We can't predict which of two professions 
Jack will engage in after graduation. The 
Herr Doktor has tried his best to make a 
chemist out of him but his real love is for 
the Pennsylvania R. R., in which he has 
sublime faith even in these times. If General 
Atterbury doesn't offer Jack a vice-presi- 
dency or a job in one of his ticket offices, 
hell never find another fellow who would 
spend the night in Broad Street Station 
waiting for the six o'clock train rather than 
take the P. and W. back to College.

"I IK majority of the hoys," said Fritzic from the ros- 
trum in Roberts, "who leave llaverford before they 
have grailuated make good. Now there was one fellow 
who didn't get along here very well and now he is the head of a large 
pineapj)le concern in Hawaii, and another who n a college president." 
Then, with a rather sheepish smile, he added, "You who stay in can make 
good too." Our too numerous "ex's" are still too young to have achieved 
the fame that was assured to them, but we feel quite confident that in 
time these our departed will attain their due measure of success in the 
fruit business and in other fields. 

Bill Nelson, fresh from George School, arrived at College, roomed in 
Lloyd with Vic BuUen, played around on the soccer field, and departed, 
the first of our class to have this privilege. 

Next on our honor roll is Stockwell, a soccer player from Haverford 
School of no mean caliber. We seem to remember him playing a trumpet 
in our orchestra for that now forgotten institution, the Cake Walk. Since 
he ranked in the first five on the psychological test, and in the last five in 
half-year grades. Dean Brown managed to come to the conclusion that 
Stockwell wasn't working, and so he is now at Penn studying to be an 
architect. 

When college opened to find us Sophomores, six more had left the 
happy fold. Dave Bean, who played footl^all well enough to get his 



B 







f .J!fc:j m

numerals, succumbed to History 1 and other 
courses, so that even his announcing his inten- 
tion to take honors in German could not save 
him from the axe. He is said to be at Penn, the 
foundlings' home for Haverford athletes. 

Bliss is the only man who ever flunked out 
by failing in one-half course. Dubbed a 
"supercilious smart alec" by one of our charm- 
ing but frank professors at a meeting of the 
delinquent students' committee, he received 
official permission to enter the wide world. As 
a punishment he was forced to take a trip 
around the world, and is now at Dartmouth. 
Perhaps his greatest fame lay in his ability to accompany f(x)'s mathe- 
matical explanations with a gentle soft and contagious whistling which was 
appreciated by all present with the possible exception of the professor 
himself. 

Fred DeCamp will always be remembered for his revealing lecture on 
the nature of the Oedipus complex in Austin K. Gray's special English 
course for Freshmen, for his imitation of the mannerisms of the Barron, 
and for the ride for which he took Tat in P'rench 1 in the good old days 
before the hitter's increasing executive duties forced him to give up teach- 
ing. Merion didn't seem to agree with him, nor did the Dean; so we lost 
DeCamp. 

Teb Feroe came from Hill School, raised hell at Haverford, got a 
letter in baseball, and departed with his l^rother to attend Dickinson where 
he is now a basketball star. His powerful victrola attracted large crowds 
to his room which became the meeting place for half the College. 

A would-be tenor voice and a passion for l^reiser's "American 
Tragedy" characterized Norm Houston. He 
roomed with Dick Bacon, sang in a church 
choir at Bryn Mawr, got on probation in short 
order which prevented him from falling into 
Pop's hands, and made his exit to study music 
at Oberlin College. 

Richards was another of our losses in 
Rhinie year. Cousin of the tennis player, he 
showed his athletic ability in the gym where 
he was one of Evans' shining lights. 

Our class remained intact in Sophomore 
year except for Jack Young who decided that 
it was not worth his while to take his midyears. 




150 







The unprecedented dropping of five courses 
was enough to make the Dean decide that 
Jack was not making the best use of his time 
here. Rhinie year saw Young rooming with 
AUendoerfer whom he emulated in hell -raising 
but not in scholastic diligence. He is now a 
Junior at the I'niversity of Minnesota and is 
reported engaged. 

The end of Sophomore year marked tlic 
exit of five lads wlio were all cl)ani])i()iis in 
their own lines and worthy of descriptive super- 
latives. WaMy Ayres had tlie heaviest beard 
and the oldest Ford on the Campus, the latter 
named "Old Man River". Wally wasa gymnast, wearer of the track "H", 
and quite an artist. After a sojourn at Dartmouth, he went to sea in a 
fishing boat oft" Gloucester and was la.st reported on his way to join the 
army. 

Roy Fay had the loudest speaking voice of anybody in our Trig class 
or in any other class at Haverford, we suspect. He was playing manager 
of the Freshman Tennis Team, and in Sophomore year played more or 
less on Captain Gene Hogenauer's varsity. Coming from Boston, Roy was 
able to express himself in the most beautiful and sweetly flowing English 
without, however, saying anything. He left us to work in Philadelphia, 
and is now in Brookline, Mass. 

"P. V." Lawrence was the class smoothie and, in fact, the .smoothest 
fellow we know of outside of Princeton. Coming from Andover, and living 
in fashionable New York, Parker's rise to fame culminated in his election 
to the temporary chairmanship of the class, a place on the Freshman 
Tennis Team, and a friendship with Partington who took him under his 

wing in Sophomore year. 

The quietest man of our class was Al 
Strong. Even taciturn Ki Smiley appeared 
verbose in comparison with Al. But he roomed 
with Lipsitz in Sophomore year and maybe that 
had something to do with it. Al was the founder 
of the music column in the yews, and was there- 
fore a godsend to the copy-needing editor. 

Bob Zuber had the reputation of being the 
sleepiest of a very sleepy class. This was, no 
doubt, due to the fact that only Jack Zapp 
could compete with him for the back seat in the 
classroom. Bob was a soccer player and a 




151 






baseball star, but Ec. 1 was too much for him. 

With the opening of Junior year we had reached a position where 
there was little danger of a further depletion in our membership, but then 
along came Fritzie with his inspiring speech in Collection which enticed 
several of us away from these ivy-covered halls to other ivy-covered halls 
or out into the world of reality. 

Business ambitions got the best of Ken Read; and he shifted to Peirce 
Business School, saxophone and all, in the middle of the year. We suppose 
that he couldn't stand the strain of majoring in engineering — it allowed 
him too much free time in which to amuse himself. We see him often at 
our concerts, where he and his horn bolster up the ever-needy Instrumental 
Club. Ken was the Captain of the golf men and is largely responsible for 
its recognition as an official college team. He was clever enough always to 
have a car at his disposal, a feat remarkable in these days of night watch- 
men and eagle-eye flannel-feet. Also he was, and still is so far as we know, 
quite the ladies' man. It must be his hair that gets them. 

When most of us had become hallowed Seniors, we found that another 
exodus had taken place and that we were four less in number. Landon 
Q. (Grier) Haynes found women more interesting than German, so he got 
married and found himself a job in Macy's, leaving behind him some old 
packs of cards and Job Taylor and Tom White broken-hearted. Haynes was 
active in the German Club, especially when certain members adjourned 
to Alfredo's for some German culture — at twenty-five cents a glass. 

Rumored to have an estate in Mexico and a winter home in Cuba, 
possessing an automobile more important looking than Crozer's, claiming 
relationship with the Duke of Buckingham, Henry Henderson was the 
mystery member of the class. Picture him dressed in a loud-checkered 
suit reminiscent of the race track, seated in a dignified manner on the back 
seat of a car of foreign make with chauffeur and accompanying trappings, 
and you see him in a characteristic pose. He is the only man whom the 
Students' Council has ever reprimanded for having honorable intentions; 
and he is the only student who has brought a Miss America, though of 
slightly ancient vintage, but a Miss America just the same, to one of our 
dances. 

Fred Rudge was unable to return to college at the beginning of Senior 
year, but is completing his work at Columbia. A Junior Phi Bete, a mem- 
ber of Pop's track squad, and the manager of the debating team, he did 
his best to escape Bob Haines' inevitable conversations in four (4) different 
languages. Freddie was particularly amusing in History 1 quiz section. 
"Now, Dr. Lunt," he would suggest in a voice at least a tone lower than 
that of the Baron's, "wasn't that battle fought at three-thirty on the 17th of 
May, 1346?" It of course pleased the Baron immensely to see what 

152 






interest his star pupil was taking in liis work; but certain skeptical mem- 
l)ers of the section would wonder if a certain practice didn't exist at Haver- 
ford College after all, despite our William's assurance to the contrary. 

"Zephyr", as Dave Hollander was commonly called, was gentle as a 
hind) most of the time, but when he was aroused he was as wild as a raging 
lion. Building fires in North and then drowning them with gallons of 
water or with the handy fire-extinguisher, hauling ash-cans up two flights 
of stairs and then watching them tund)le and rumble down again, })reaking 
windows, smashing doors and beds, "Zephyr" was irresistible when thus 
excited. He had a strange interest in incense; in fact, not content with per- 
fuming his own room, he would generously scent those of Sipple and of 
Schramm, much to their deHght. He also had a surprising collection of 
lousy victrola records which he covered up by a nice red-seal record con- 
ttiining something by Wagner. Dave is now pursuing a pre-med course 
in his own home town at Johns Hopkins.

iRe: 



A TYPICAL COLLEGE DAY 

The Record Board presents a typical but composite collese day with an 
occdsiondl extravaganza. Vou will kindly consider the Record Board a 
Bird (Hail to thee, blithe spirit!) which has Flitted back and forth across 
our green campus constantly for four years. 

4:30 A. M. 

The campus i.s deserted and dark except for two lights 
wliich burn in Old Lloyd. Beneath one of them sits *' Ki" Smiley polishing 
off page 41 of his monumental ethics thesis. Crouched near the other is 
Jacobs studying for a (piiz. Smiley is blear-eyed from lack of sleep; but 
Jacobs, who commonly rises and pines about twelve-noon, is wide awake. 

5:15 A. M. 

Smiley, like the gentle Quaker that he is, says "Bless this 
ethics paper" (meaning nothing of the kind) and goes to bed. Jacobs 
returns from the dog-wagon and continues to study. 

6:00 A. M. 

Baker rises to make up the Xews. His quiet but forceful 
comments regarding proof readers break the early morning silence of the 
Union in a musical monotone. The cadence rises slightly as he answers a 
wrong number on the telephone. 

7:15 A. M. 

Baker, after fermenting for an hour and a half, comes to 
a boil as Bowen slouches into the Xeus Room. In five minutes the Crow's 
Nest emerges under the crack of the door as a grease spot and slides 
quickly down the stairs as though impelled by an unseen hand. In Lloyd 
the alarm clock of some ambitious soul goes off in the key of C. There is 
a loud crash of breaking glass as the clock describes a graceful curve from 
a window to the lawn. Syd Hunt, Peewee Roberts, Jack Settle, Ray Webb, 
and Hyde Ballard rise as one man. 

7:45 A. M. 

The Freshmen enter the dining room. Buzz of cheerful 
conversation arises. 

7:50 A. M. 

First Senior arrives, wrapped in a deep fog. As he inspects 
the food situation, his frown becomes aggravated. Scowling darkly at 
President Sharpless, he sits down heavily and breaks a chair. He spends 
the rest of the meal complaining about the dining-room furniture. 

7:59 A. M. 

Six Seniors arrive at the door en mas.se, colliding violently. 
They occupy a tal)le and eat in weighty silence, broken only by an occa- 
sional gulp or crunch.

8:10 A. M. 

Campus awakens to life. There is a chorus of yells for 
Parker, who proceeds to Roberts escorted by five forgetful souls who want 
their Collection cuts counted. 

8:15 A. M. 

One hundred and thirteen unfortunates, too sleepy to 
count their cuts, stagger into Roberts, eye Dr. Flight suspiciously, and 
immediately resume their interrupted slumbers. The little Bird arrives, 
perches on the back of one of the five hundred unoccupied seats, takes out 
his note-book, and observes the proceedings. He writes: 

Collection 

Scene, Roberts Hall. A cold auditorium, rows of seats untouched by 
the cheering hand of pulchritude, and a pregnant platform upon which 
can be seen seated some individuals of serious mien. Especially noticeable 
is a youth on the left of the stage with a small book; and he looks very 
worried indeed (by his dress you shall know him — a gentleman). This 
panorama is displayed on a background of streaked yellow. 

You climb over five people (fly, if you're a bird), whose knees are 
deadly traps for the unwary, only to find that the guy sitting next to you 
has forgotten to bring the sport sheet and you have picked up the weather 
and shipping news from the Times, your roommate having walked oflF with 
the bulk of the paper as usual. No hope. 



176 




m'£''^^%.l^ 



There is a liasty tread down the side aisle, an attack on the desk — 
"Hymn No. ^^l." NOioes are raised (any key will do), "Holy, Holy, 
Holy" is dimly sounded forth, and the battle with the piano is begun. 
But the piano is very jiersistent and invariably wins; it makes the most 
noise and the best time. In fact, it makes the four verses in two minutes 
flat — very flat. Those who Iknow the son^'; sing it; those who doiTl do 
likewise; the effect is somewhat bizarre. 

A familiar figure in Collection arises from his chair. " 'What will ye? 
Shall 1 come unto you with a rod. or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?' " 
(Will you please get your everlastingly blanked knee outa my neck?) 
Come to think of it, I suppose ])eople do glean some knowledge from Col- 
lection. What innocent Haverfordian would ever have thought of the 
danger of having an oasis in Chase Hall? Desert, oasis, camels, cigarettes; 
ha, ha, pretty good for our Bill. Haverford College is dry too; Haverford 
College is not interested in educating any young man addicted to the use 
of intoxicating liquors. 

^Memories! Memories! "Thou, () King, hast made a decree that every 
man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, 
and all kinds of music shall fall down and worship the golden image." 
"Therefore, because the king's command was urgent, and the furnace 
exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, 
Meshach, and x\bednego." (You know — "Good Night Sweetheart " — 
and Abednego.) 

"... and as I said to Secretary Stimson, it is absolutely imperative 
that the calendar be reformed. But when I was talking to Briand in 
Geneva ". 

"... and, friends, do you realize the great power of prayer? I 
found twopence on Trafalgar Square one day; and Dr. Bernardo said to 
me " Quite the little orator. Dr. Bernardo! 

" Juba — Juba! 

" Juba this and Juba that; 

"Juba killed a yellow cat 

"To make his wife a Sunday hat. 

" Juba — Juba ! 

"Who ish thish king of glory?" Those teeth would make a good 
mouse trap. 

"... Phi Beta Kappa. Of course, we wanted a real celebration. 
So I suggested Willow Grove to him. He also thought Willow Grove 
would be the place to go, for we wanted a real celebration. But, on our 
way we met a little boy " 

"And now, fellows, I have a few announcements to make. F(x) — 

177 






wow — ah — rumph — Dr. Reid would like the members of his Freshman 
Math Class to remain seated after Collection. All those interested in an 
art class will please sign the slip in Mr. Chase's office, and geez to mack, 
fellows, somebody's got to sign for this. Golly, fellows, one guy can't do 
all this. And the Freshmen are to remain seated after Collection— after 
Collection." 

A nod. "Down Rhinies!" Ahah! The mail! Darn it, Wes. Why trot 
out your waving palms and sun-kissed sands in mid-winter? We're not a 
good risk anyhow; we room near Fields. 

8:40 A. M. 

Sleep period ends amid daggered looks from professors 
with 9:30 classes. 

An Hour With Fine 
8:41 A. M- 

Math class, at least so far as F(x) is concerned, begins, One-half the 
class slips into a peaceful coma; the rest can't sleep when there's a lot of 
noise around. Little Bird flies gayly in and pecks Fields on the head, 
inflicting serious injury. Fields pays no attention, thinking the pain is 
caused by one of F(x)'s jokes. He writes: 

F(x) : Closador, please, genlmun ! Closador, please ! Mr. Potts, would 
you all mind opening tliat back window. They keep this room so hot a 
person can hardly breathe. I spoke to Mr. Johnson last week about it, 
but it didn't seem to do much good. Why is college such a depository of 
knowledge, Mr. Zapp? (Witliout waiting for an answer): Because the 
Freshmen bring so mucli in and the Seniors take so little out. 

(As this is a new joke, everyone is too much surprised to laugh.) 

The first thing this morning, I want to explain to you all what we 
mean by infinity. Suppose we take a mountain in Peru and let an eagle 
sharpen his beak on this once a year. Now you might think that by the 
time the mountain was worn away it would be infinity, but uh, uh. uh — 
(Chorus of guffaws from class which starts laughing at the first joke: Effie 
glows with pleasure.) I wish you genlmun wouldn't laugh so much until 
I come to the point; you miss the whole essence of the thing. 

(Strains of the Tiger Rag float down the ventilator from the Barn.) 
Mista Fields, would you please go upstairs and take care of that situa- 
tion? They must not realize there is a class in here. Have you all any 
questions you would like to ask me on the work assigned? 

Bourne: Dr. Reid, what does Fine mean by "sheets" in describing 
hyperboloids of two sheets? 

178 



V{\): Well, you know, there are sheets and sheets. Tt depends on 
wluit you are talking about, but here Fine is just talkinj^ about sheets. 
Does that answer your question? Any more questions? (Silence.) Then 
I fj;uess I'll send some of you to the board. 

Wertime (the hero): Say, Dr. Reid, I didn't quite understand the 
twelfth problem; would you mind explaining that? 

V{\): Coitanly, coitanly — let's see now. Just read me that problem, 
Mr. \'airtime. Just a minute now, I'll see how I worked that before. 
(Refers to dog-eared book containing solutions of all problems.) Yes, here 
it is. Quite obvious. It's funny you couldn't do that by yourself. Did 
any of the rest of you all get that problem? (Silence.) Well, you had better 
try again; I can't take time explaining such elementary work. (Problem 
appears on the next exam.) I guess there's still time for you all to go to 
the l)oard. The first three rows may go. 

Chorus: We went last time. 

F(x): All right then, the last three rows. (There are four rows in all.) 

(Fx) (much later) : We will have a written recitation over two months 
ago's work on next Saturday. Class dismissed. 

Exit the Bird, not waiting for the class to give him to F(x). 

Exit F(x) bound for taxi and golf in Virginia on Saturday. 

Serendipity 

9:30 A. M. 

Our little Bird, dazed from his recent experience, flutters 
weakly in an open window of Whitall in search of Dr. Hotson's Chaucer 
class. He was dazed, you understand, or he never would have been so 
foolhardy. He had just sense enough to pull his notebook out from beneath 
his wing and write the following: 

"Let us today look into the ' W^f of Bath's Prologue'." "Her what?" 
whispers Bijur, leaning over to Walton. "Oh, twaddle!" returns W^alton 
quickly. 

"Are there any questions?" "What, Mr. Irion, you don't know 
what the word 'queynte' means? It's obscene. You'd better look it up in 
the glossary. By the way, I don't believe you gentlemen are getting the 
most out of Chaucer. There will be a day of reckoning, you know. That 
reminds me of the story about an Indian who owed a white man $'200. The 
Indian finally paid off his debt and, in doing so, asked the white man 
for a receipt. 'Why, don't you trust me. Mighty Bull?' 'Oh, I trust you 
all right.' 'Then, why ask for a receipt?' 'Well, you know, some day I'm 
going to die and when I get to Heaven the Lord is going to say to me, 
"Mighty Bull, have you been a good Indian?" I'll say, "Yes, Lord." 
"Have you paid all your debts?" "Yes, Lord." "Let's see your receipts." 

179 



.^^^^iM 



Now I don't want to have to go chasing all over Hell to get my receipt 
from you." ' " 

Those who don't yet know the technique of artistic bootlicking guffaw 
loudly; two pencil chewers swallow their pencils in a startled way. 

"Before I go on, I want to remind you to do considerable reading out- 
side of class. It will enable you to appreciate Chaucer's poetry more in 
later life." This is concentrated horseradish; but it sounds good. "Turn 
to the 'Wyf of Bath's Prologue.' She is talking about her fifth husband, 
who was something of a scholar. 

'And whan I saugh he wolde never fyne 
To reden on this cursed book al night, 
Al sodeynly three leves have I plight 
Out of his book, right as he radde, and eke, 

I with my fist so took him in the cheke, 
That in our fyr he fil bakward adoun. 

And he up-stirte as dooth a wood leoun. 

And with his fist he smoot me on the heed, 

That in the floor I lay as I were deed.' " 

Nice little pair of playmates, if they didn't cause each other's teeth 
to part company with their mouths too early in their married lives. Dr. 
Hotson pares another hour off the rind of infinite time reading Chaucer 
in the voice of one rapt to Heaven. 

"That is all for today, gentlemen. Peruse the 'Tale of the Wyf of 
Bath' for next time." Really, Dr. Hotson. 

The Pause That Refreshes 
10:30 A. M. 

The little Bird, feathers ruffled, his beak yawning with 
exhaustion, flops towards tlie Library, falls into a side-slip, and finds him- 
self on the milestone outside Chase Hall. Filled with memories, he pauses 
for a moment of contemplation on this monument of bygone times, then, 
after discharging his obligation to antiquity, decides to see what is happen- 
ing in Chase Hall. Frightened by a terrific bass rumble at the foot of the 
stairs, he beats the air and arrives at the top thereof just in time to be 
greeted by a blast of sound from the open door on the left. 

Professor A. is just holding an elementary French class. He has just 
been in search of chalk and has been refused admittance to the little con- 
ference room by Professor B., who is attempting to hold a sort of class 
within. Since no chalk was to be obtained, what was to be done but hold 
a class in the pronunciation of vowels.'^ Roars of ah, oh, ay, oo thunder 
forth at separated intervals of a second or two accompanied by corrections 

180 



A 



^'-kJtk- 




in the stentorian bellow of Professor A. "Not oo; say oo," says Professor 
A. "Oo," yells the class in dutiful unison. "No-o-o, not oo, but 56," 
comes the response with simulated irritation. And the chorus chants, 
"Oo." And so on for forty minutes. The bass rumble at the foot of the 
stairs suddenly ceases, a door slams with vicious force, and the bass rumble 
continues, diminished in volume. Professor C. (you would never recognize 
this as Petie unless we told you) is heard on the right: "... and Horace 
was one of the most important figures of Clas-si-cal R6-man Lit-er-a-ture." 
Shouts issue from the door of the end room where the President is endeav- 
oring to make himself heard over the racket outside. "Vite,vite. 
monsieur." 

The Greeks Had a Word For It 

11:30 A. M. 

Our little Bird returns to Founder's Hall hoping to find 
peace in the room of that noted Guggenheimer, Mr. Post. He now perches 
on tlie top of a blackboard out of the reach of flying Greek verbs — quite 
dangerous weapons indeed. He writes: 

Mr. Post: Now, Mr. McKinlay, will you kindly translate this chorus? 

McKinlav: Oh, ah 



181 



^^s^^ 

■m^^ "^X^ ^ 4^^^^ 



Mr. Post translates the entire chorus at top speed. The class, after 
a vain attempt to keep up with the game, gives up and listens with the vast 
calm of ignorance in the presence of erudition. 

Mr. Post: That will do, Mr. McKinlay. (McKinlay has said nothing 
but "oh, ah.") Regarding the chorus . . . (There follows a fifteen-minute, 
discourse on an unannounced subject which brings in literature, philosophy, 
physics, chemistry, geology, and a few well-girded facts of geometry. 
Music is not discussed.) What do you think about it, Mr. Zint-1? (A vague 
"Oh, ah" from Zintl, who doesn't think much of it, starts Professor Post 
off on another discourse.) (Finally) Will you translate, Mr. Walton? 

Mr. Walton, by dint of getting off to a fast start and shouting Mr. 
Post down every time that worthy starts to rumble in his throat, gets 
through in creditable fashion. 

Mr. Post: Mr. Walton, why do you think Homer omits the Song of the 
Sirens? 

Walton gives a lengthy series of sound reasonings, consuming four 
minutes by the clock. 

Mr. Post (after Walton has finished) : Well, Mr. Walton, you will be 
interested to learn that Homer does include the Song of the Sirens. 

Walton retires within his shell and is not again heard from. 

Mr. Post: What is the form of the second word in line 471, Mr. Hunt? 

Hunt: I don't know. Dr. Post. 

Mr. Post: My name is Mr. Post. Mr. Zintl, do you know? Mr. Wal- 
ton — Mr. McKinlay — Mr. Bailey — anybody? Nobody knows. This class 
knows less about forms than Greek A. Come back next time prepared to 
give forms. Class dismissed. 

Everybody goes out in high fettle, rejoicing in the knowledge that this 
is the only time in present history that Prof. Post has dismissed a class 
early. 

The Hungry Mob 

12:30 P. M. 

Wilmer and His Collegians Present Ptomaine Poisoning 

in 3 Acts. 

Clapping, announcements. Yells of, "Shirt, Potts." (It's bright 
green.) "Dinner at six." "Why?" 

Cheers crash out and the companion of the accordion man goes about 
collecting coins. The depression seems to be acutely felt in some quarters. 
The little Bird, thinking he has come to Scotland, twitters, "I can't give 
you anything but love," and simultaneously becomes the target of seven- 
teen potatoes, which, oddly enough, finally come to rest on the Faculty 
table. Bird flits out amidst loud cries for Wilmer to effect his removal. 

182 



Uncle Bill Makes a Call 

3:20 P. M. 

Little Bird transfers scene of operations to Lloyd and 
there finds bull sessions, bridf:je games, etc. in })rogress. He enters ninth 
entry and is never the same Bird again. He writes: 

Scene — Xintfi Entry, first floor. In Number 35, safe behind an imi)os- 
ing "Do Not Disturb" sign, the restful bodies of Fox, Ferris, and Allen lie 
in state. The atmosphere resembles that of a model Meeting, the quiet of 
the siesta being disturbed only by an occasional buzz from the depths of 
Ferris' manly bosom. In 36, directly across the hall from this haven of 
souls worn out by scholastic endeavor, four disciples of Culbertson — 
Jacobs, Kohn, La Due, and White — are in the foreground, bowing their 
heads over the altar of Contract. In the right background the Majestic, 
and Zintl, draped over the davenport, with head back and jaw limp, 
supply atmospheric music. The brilliant sunlight of the outside world 
cannot quite penetrate the dense, blue cloud that permeates the room. 
On the left, on the mantel above the fireplace, .several dead soldiers of 
varied labels and ages stand on guard. The room is well furnished and 
tastefully decorated, but its order is somewhat deranged. At the left, 
in the background, a small vestibule and one of the bedrooms which open 
on it can be seen. 

The interest of the occupants of 36 (excepting Zintl) is at a fever 
pitch as White attempts to make five clubs. Footsteps are heard in the hall 
and there is a knock at the door. 

Voice Outside: This is Dr. Comfort. May I come in? 

La Due (in a weak and not too clear voice) : Come in. 

More sharp knocks. 

Dr. Comfort: I say, this is Dr. Comfort. Can I come in? 

La Due (louder and more emphatically): Come in! 

Dr. Comfort and a grey-haired gentleman enter cautiously, peering 
through the haze; and the quartet around the bridge table arises as one. 
Zintl continues in his l)lissfally unconscious state. 

Dr. Comfort: Oh, they're having a little game of cards. Excuse me, 

boys. Don't get up. I just wanted to show Mr. of School, 

Detroit, a typical suite of Haverford rooms. Possibly you have heard of 
this school, Joiin, if your knowledge extends that far. (Sweeps his arm 
in the general direction of the fireplace.) Oh, I see that you have some 
bottles on the mantel! 

]Mr. : Three rooms to a suite, I see. (Signs of life on the daven- 
port.) 

Dr. Comfort: This is the study 

Mr. (interrupting): Or, perhaps the cardroom. (Looks behind.) 

183 



_^^3S^ 



And here we have two bedrooms (Zintl sits up and rubs his eyes in 

astonishment.) 

Dr. Comfort (interrupting) : Probably two bars. (After a marked 
pause.) Thanks for letting us disturb you; we don't want to keep you from 
your game. 

The two visitors leave and are next seen quitting the entry, their 
faces covered by broad smiles. All is quiet in 36 until the outside door 
clicks sliut; then the silence is broken by loud and hearty laughter. (X. B. 
This little story, says the Bird, is intended to illustrate President Com- 
fort's statement in the Public Ledger that he would feel free to drop into 
a student's room at any time and discuss his personality with him.) 

Bill Wray, heard shouting from afar: "Bridge! Gerenbeck. We have 
ten minutes to play. Come make a fourth." Urgent wailings from Peewee 
Rol)erts and Ray Webb confirm Bill's beseeching shout. Gerry comes on 
the run. 
"If Youse Guys Wanna Play Soccer ..." 

3:30 P. M. 

Little Bird goes over to the running track and there finds 
a large man running about exuding perspiration and stutters, carrying a 
pistol which won't work, several blank shells which are duds, a mind which 
won't remember names, and a large load of woe which occasionally becomes 
vocal. Little Bird is much bothered by this gentleman's agitation and 
departs for Merion Field. 

Mr. Evans: Now I want youse boys to learn this goal-kicking. You 
can't ex})ect to get up to fourth team soccer, if you don't, uh — what was 
I talking about? Oh yes, heading the ball. Now, that aids abdominal 
strenth. You can't smoke cigarettes and expect to get the ball in the 
goal. (A non-smoker proudly throws out his chest, kicks, throws out his 
knee, and misses the goal by ten feet.) 
A Quiet Evening at Home 

6:30 P. M. 

Dinner, as occasionally happens, is of such surpassing 
excellence that nobody can find anything to criticize except the eleven 
who have read the Crow's Nest. (It has been the custom from time imme- 
morial for the Record to beef about the Founder's food; it is because 
we are no iconoclasts that we have followed tradition. Anybody who 
doesn't think that "Ma" does nobly by her boys is invited to step around 
to our offices and receive a handsomely bound copy of "Where to Get 
Worse Meals Than at Haverford". Bring your horse and wagon with you.) 

7:00 P. M. 

Little Bird puts on a clean collar, preens his feathers, and 
goes around to the Field Club Meeting. He comes out in half a minute 

184 



Ijl^^l^ 




^^IfHSr-i; 





without his collar, a band like a manacle on his leg, dusty and bedraggled 
from beak to claw. His nervous system is completely shot. He shakes his 
wing vindictively; and, muttering something about taking the matter up 
in Congress, he finally gets to the Hilles Laboratory, where he hopes to 
learn some engineering. 

The meeting is Jiot called to order by President Schramm, who, after 
earnestly exhorting the boys that they must infallibly be at Engineering 
Club, has himself forgotten the meeting entirely and has gone off on a 
date. The chaps who like to ride on P. and W. cars discuss speed for a 
while; but our little Bird, who can make 70 m.p.h. himself when being 
chased by the little woman, goes back to his room and starts to study. 

7:45 p. M. 

Five men, who have been talking to Bryn Mawr and 
Baldwin School since supper, leave various phones. Bill Wagner, Ed Carr, 
and Bill Pusey, who are using private phones, still going strong. Yell 
from Bill Wray, "Bridge! Gerenbeck! Got to study in twenty minutes." 
(Bill starts to study at 11:00 P. M.) Several Bryn Martyrs arrive in the 
Sixth Entry. A vast noise soon arises, causing the Haverford Detective 
Agency to send all its operatives to the scene, followed on horse by the 
Dean of the College. The horse's name is B and she's a great old nag. 

Tat: A little noise is O.K.; but when the Library and the boys up 
in Barclay Tower phone in a complaint 

Parker: But we weren't making noise; we were singing. 

Haverford Detective Agency: Heh, heh, heh 

11:45 P. M. 

The serious business of the evening begins. Bull sessions 
begin at scattered points throughout the dorms. Some soon die of inani- 
tion; some capture that fleeting spark of interest and last far into the night. 
Little Bird sits in on a seventh entry session to which members have 
drifted from all over the campus, attracted by the bull roar of Moos. 
The subject is prohibition, which, as everybody knows, is half-way between 
religion and sex in any bull session. Sipple, Zapp, Lank Brown, and Tarazi 
are stoutly defending the present law against the rest of the room. The 
exit of La Due at 3:30 A. M. loudly proclaiming, "I've got an exam 
tomorrow; got to get some sleep; and I don't care what anybody says, / 
prefer blondes", finally breaks up the meeting. 

4:30 A. M. 

"Ki" Smiley is polishing off page 42 of his ethics thesis. 
Jacobs is studying for another exam. Save for their two lights, the campus 
is dark and deserted.

Scene: The Harerford ''Gym'\ Students discovered dancing with their 
dates. 

Chorus (Students and Bryn Matrr girls sing) : 
If you want to know who we are. 

We reply with one accord: 
We're students of Bryn Mawr 
And also Haverford. 
Trio (Misses Schwab, McM aster, and Gerhard): 

Three little maids from Bryn Mawr we 
In search of a Bachelor of Arts degree, 
Sophisticated, you'll all agree. 
And, oh, so wise are we! 
Schwab: Life is a date that's just begun. 
McMaster: Always mix our work with fun. 
Gerhard: Out every night and up 'til one. 
All: Three little maids are we. 

Ladies: We, with certainty rare but well-founded, 

Will define a man's life as well-rounded, 
When he enters the strife 
And captures a wife 
And leaves his opponents confounded. 
Gentlemen: This is brav'ry distilled and compounded, 
With hardships beset and surrounded. 
But the ladies make life 
W'orth living, though rife 
W^ith suspicion, by jealousy bounded. 
Ladies and Gentlemen (together) : 

But a college is not for laments. 

We're pulling a terrible hammer.

So let's get along with our dramer.

(Enter President of the Student Council.) 
All: Hail, "Kauffy" Potts, our glorious president, 

Soccer "cap" emeritus and ad for Pepsodent. 
President: My friends, I thank you kindly for this glowing sentiment; 
And if you've got the time that generally is spent 
In sitting in the garden or otherwise absent, 
I'll tell you with succinctness exactly what is meant 
By "typical Haverfordian " — a most exclusive gent! 
Ladies: Yes, yes, report 

Whate'er import 

By "typical" may be implied. 
Is he pretty and fair 
And as debonair 

As the escorts here by our side? 
Solo — President of the Student Council: 

Here's a typical Haverford man of today. 
He's witty — as Toogood and Morley display. 
He's learned but merry 
Like Jones and Cadbury, 
And sometimes, like Simkin, he goes to Cathay. 

With a touch of the aristocrat — not very much of it — 
On any party you'll find him such a fit! 

His merits at wooing 

Are i)roved in the doing. 
A chance in the garden.^ He always will clutch at it. 

He's not very chary of drug-store expenses; 
He sometimes likes novels and movie romences; 
The arts are his rage. 
So are sports and the stage; 
It's patent a man of wide interests he hence is. 
(Enter Chorus of Faculty Members, dignified and stately.) 
Chorus: Expositors of learning we 

And authors of the lore you see 
Set forth in books both large and wee 
With marvelous callidity. 
Incredulous Group of Stags (hidden in the gallery): 
W'ell, what the hell's callidity? 

Chorus: Now Greek we think should be required; 

And Physics 1 is much desired. 

Of Music 1 we've grown quite tired; 

But that F'rench 2 is so inspired! 

Stags (mournfully) : 

So damnably inspired! 
188 




(Enter, sitiyiny and daucitKj, the Facility Hives.) 
Chorus: The wedded wives of learning, we, 

I pliolders of maternity. 

But victims of prolixity, 

For which we bear grim enmity. 
Stags (m enthusiastic agreement): 

Most bitter, bitter enmity! 

Chorus: Our children, though by learning sired. 

Their fathers have deserted, fired 

By learning, and in books are mired, 

Forgetting those they erstwhile squired. 
Stags (sorrowfully) : 

Forgetting those they squired. 

Potts: Dear friends, it is exceedingly pleasant to see you all here again. 

All: Hear, hear!! 

Potts: These festivities are highly appropriate to a project now on foot 

upon our campus. 
All: What project may that be.' 
President Comfort: Listen and I'll tell vou. 



189 



..^^^^ 



Solo — President Comfort: 

You possibly have heard, 

If the News you ever scan, 
Of that great experiment — 

The Centenary Plan — 
Whereby each eager student 

Of our cloistered little clan 
Will take his sheepskin to the world, 

An educated man. 

You would do ourselves a favor — 

The faculty and me — 
If you proffered your suggestions; 

Don't restrain for modesty. 
Should we give a course in Sanskrit 

Or Welsh philologee, 
Or do away with Tuesday steaks 

And serve you better tea? 

We might construct a swimming pool: 

New tennis courts would do, 
A theatre and an art museum, 

A dormitory or two. 
We might abolish all snap courses. 

Now, of course, quite few; 
The dining room might serve you chops 

Instead of college stew. 
All Haverfordians: Yes, yes, whate'er you do, 
Abolish college stew. 

Mrs. Taylor — President of the Faculty Women's Club: While all 
these suggestions sound very charming, isn't there something more 
romantic than the abolition of college stew which will further this great 
enterprise? 

Smiley: Romantic? Why should Haverford want anything romantic? 

Miss Young: Since MacColl left, Haverford has been — oh, so unromantic! 

Recitative {Mrs. Taylor): 

Suppose that we women, in the interests of good taste, 

See that something of aesthetic quality, something fair and pure 

and chaste, 

Is placed upon the campus. Shall we go into a huddle 

And confer in secrecy so the men our plans won't muddle? 

{The tvomen and Bryn Maivr girls gather in the center of the stage while 

the men, disgusted at being excluded from such councils, dance about 

indifferently.) 
190 



Ciiours (Mcft): 

So you don't want, advice? 

Do you think it is nice 

To leave us alone and f^o straying? 

But it's nothing to us; 

We don't give a cuss. 

l*st! Can you hear what they're saying? 
Chorus {H'oincn): 

List ye guardians of this sacred spot: 

Scholars, students, teachers, what-not; 

Hy|)atiu turns her mind to contemplation 

01* the campus' impeccable beautification. 

Mrs. Di'Nn: Do you think that the ebullient offs{)ring of our fructiferous 

cerebella should be offered to the masculine auditory organs without 

due ceremony? 

Miss Ann Hawkes: Let us preserve a pauciloquent attitude and reserve 

our suggestion for a more august occasion. 

Foley: I don't know what you're talking about; but pray tell us, what is 

this secret that you keep? 

Recitative (Mrs. Taylor): 

We propose to utilize the greensward back of Barclay Hall 

For purposes most poetic — pastoral ! 

You may take the plan we offer or take none at all. 

This it is: that Haverford shall keep | 

About its verdant meadows a flock of little sheep. 

Men: Sheep? Never! 

W^OMEN {dramatlcalljj): Then we sever — forever! 

{There is great consternation among the men as the women hurry to 

secure their wraps.) 

President Comfort: Alas, what an unforeseen catastrophe! j 

Dean Brown: This is what comes of women having too much freedom. j 

"Kauffy" Potts: Gentlemen, in this crisis we must stand together. I 

Haines: Je m'en fiche pas mal. 

Mrs. Comfort: From college functions we will stay away 

Until the sheep are grazing back of old Barclay, J 

Mrs. Meldrum: O, unpoetic ones, this rashness shames; j 

We'll ne'er attend your dances or your games. ! 

Mrs. Brown: Until fair flocks delight our verdant fields, \ 

You'll find us hid by adamantine shields. J

Miss Schwab: Every girl from Bryn Mawr states, i 



"Get the sheep, or no more dates."

ACT II 

Scene: The Icnm back of Barclay Hall. Early morning. Students and 
faculty are seated with doleful expressions in a circle on the grass. 
Chorus {All) : Rosy-fingered dawn is rising over Ardmore town. 

Ah that in some potable our anguish we could drown. 
Since the damsels went sheep-conscious, life is drab, alas, 
Colorless as Barclay tower, hard as Hotson's Chaucer class. 
See Aurora rise afar 
O'er the works of Autocar. 
This is another day, I fear, like mathematics, hard to pass. 
{Exeunt all but Potts, Sipple, Comfort, and Palmer.) 

President Comfort: Gentlemen, what is to be done? 

Potts: We must be adamant. We have so far withstood the most deter- 
mined efforts of the ladies to thrust a flock of silly mutton on our 
campus and to enforce upon us the unseemly habiliments of shepherds 
and pastoral poets. They have denied us their services in all manner 
of things; but we must not give in. 

193 



President Comfort: Noio the library is paralyzed; our wives will no 
longer accompany us to the theatre; and the work in my office all 
devolves on me. Imagine me typing my own correspondence! {Others 
moan dutifully.) But we must not give in. 

Sipple: The student body has become desperate. There has not been a 
Faculty Tea for months. 

Palmer: But you forget 

Sipple: Of course, there was one. But what happened? Ballard and Frank 
Smith acted as hostesses and forgot the names of the guests. Dr. Reid 
and Mr. Chase poured tea and invariably put in too much sugar. 
That sort of thing won't do. 

Potts: The corporation of Haverford College is not interested in educating 
any young man addicted to the use of too much sugar. 

President Comfort: However, we must hold out. You perhaps are 
acquainted with my singular distaste for pastorals. In view of my 
feelings on the subject, I shall never consent to have sheep on this 
meadow, nor to let my hair grow, nor to don shepherds' clothing, nor 
to write virelays. 

Palmer: In that we are with you. 

Potts: Lo, what's here? 

{Enter Dean Brown dressed in a flowing gown. In one hand he carries 
a shepherd's crook, in the other a scroll. He is very much enraptured and. 
is startled by the others.)

persed the thoughts which soared through my brain. What was that 
word that rhymed with "Ganymede"? 

President Comfort: My dear sir, what's the meaning of this? 

Brown: Philomel hath beckoned with her tuneful note. List to the 
eclogue which I have indited to Phyllis. It's an allegory; and Phyllis 
is Mrs. Brown. 

(Reads) Once more ye laurels, yet once more, ye Main Line bards. 
From Lethe-wards arise and sing light-winged Dryad of the trees — 

President Comfort: Oh, I can't bear it. (Exit.) 

Brown: Alas! Ye, whose folded wings have not been singed by the sacred 
flame of Arcadian love! Lo, here is a tune whose luscious notes will 
set you tripping. Hail, Pierian spring, font of loveliness. For you I 
shall compose a roundelay, a tender thing, fraught with beauty. 
(Enter Fields as the god Pan. He plays a pipe and dances about, followed. 
by the chorns of Bryn Mawr girls.) 

Chorus: Sing, ye woodland nooks, so fresh from showers. 

From our bowers. 
Halls, and cloisters comes each gladsome, merry maiden, 

Sweetly laden 
With a garland deftly decked with fragrant flowers. 

Happy hours 
Are these in youthful, sportive spring 

To dance and sing. 
Fields: Haste, ye nymphs and buxom damsels, follow me; 
Dance to luring lute and tabor merrily. 

Potts: I beg of you, ladies, give me an explanation of this business. 

Miss Young: You! You, who have never danced a cavatina, whose lips 
have never sung dithyrambs or triolets to Rosalind, whose hand has 
never even written a georgic! 

Potts: I don't like georgics. 

Brown: Thou art behind ye times. Knowest thou not, fair swain, that 
this is an Arcadian landscape? Yonder humble cottage — I refer to 
Merion Hall — looks out upon a meadow whereon shepherds watch 
their flocks 'neath Phoebus' friendly eye. Elves bewitch the copse 
beside yon rivulet. Titania nightly gambols with her fairies in the 
woods back of Lloyd Hall and Queen Mab hath galloped o'er the 
Chem. Lab. 
(Enter Dr. Snyder and Dr. Dunn as pastoral poets.) 

Dunn: Say est thou a bucolic hath issued from thy quill?

THE NEW SUITS 

Tliree new styles of ready-made suits have been 
added to our stock for this Spring. The familiar 
Brooks Brothers' models are continued unchanged 
and are supplemented by these three new styles, 
which are both single and double breasted — some 
with plaited trousers — the coats more closely fitted 
and with squarer shoulders. 

Our traditional qualities of material and workman- 
ship are maintained in the lowered prices for 1932.

Snyder: True, good shepherd. It is writ in dactyls. Hast thou also been 

kissed by the tuneful nine? 
Dunn: Yea, verily. As a slight professional concession, I have written 
mine in pterodactyls. 

(Enter entire chorus of Faculty Wives, Facultij, and Students as 
shepherds.) 
Chorus: Tripping hither, tripping thither, 

Gayly sound the tuneful zither, 
Tra, la la, 
Hotcha, cha. 
Solo (Walton) : Allow me to announce that the editorial staff 
Of the Haverfordian has applied its lyric craft 
To assembling just one issue 
(I think that this will please you) 
Devoted to idylls, bucolics, and such draft. 
All: Let eclogues to our journal's columns creep 

x\nd glorify with verse the college sheep. 
Baa, baa, baa! 
Hotcha, cha. 
Miss Schwab: Isn't this glorious! Haverford has acceded to our wishes 
and turned pastoral.

(Enter Scudder in his car.) 

Scudder: One moment. Hold these proceedings. A singular idea has 
occurred to me. 

Sipple: Remarkable! 

Scudder: The stew, for which every man of us has such a consummate 

detestation 

All: Hear, hear! 

Scudder: Is a product of these much-lauded sheep. 

Potts: True. ^Yhat of that? 

Scudder: Well, we're abolishing Haverford stews: is it not illogical to 
maintain on the campus anything reminiscent of these gregarious, 
woolly, sometimes horned, and ruminant mammals? 

Sipple: Nothing could be more satisfactorily correct. Then, of course, 
this pastoral business comes to naught. 

All: True. (All shed their pastoral garb as far as the occasion permits. 
Students dance around singing.)

We're practical, sane young men. 
We're horn-rimmed focal,

Five-and-ten-cent-store young man.

President Comfort: As I might have predicted, you have all come to

merely memories so far as Haverford is concerned. Now, "revenons

Potts: I think we might have listened to the President in the first place.
