preface 



T_l HE BOARD OF EDITORS in presenting this, the tenth volume of tlie 
— "Revuii^le, " places before tha public, as well as before those wlio are 
intimately connected with the Maryland Agricultural College, this child 
of brain and labor, with a full assurance that it will be dealt with accord- 
ing to its just deserts. The Board makes no apologies ; but begs the 
gentle reader to judge mildly, always remembering that this book had to be pro- 
duced at the few odd moments when some scholastic, military or stu<lent organiza- 
tion duty did not press upon the editors or the managers. 

We wish here to extend our thanks and appreciation to the advertisers (for 
all of whom we wish great patronage and flourishing business) for the important 
pecuniary aid which their advertisements have brought us. We wish also to 
extend our thanks to all who have so kindly cooperated with us in the production of 
this work. 

If any one, whose name appears within these covers, thinks he has been 
"roasted" too severely, we wish to assure him that we have been moved by no 
personal motives whatever, and that we have endeavored to treat all alike and all 
with what the occasion seemed to ask for. 

And now, with the feeling that we have produced a work that will remain 
always a credit to our class and to the College, and reminding you that the pur- 
pose of this production is to amuse and to instruct, and not to furnish material for 
criticism, we make onr farewell bow; and, at the same time, introduce you to the 
Annual of the Maryland Agricultural College — "The Reveille."

TJO PROFESSOR HENRY LANAHAN this book is affectionately dedi- 
"1 cated by the Senior Class of the IMaryland Agricultural College, in 
grateful recognition of his worth as instructor and man. As an instruc- 
tor, Professor Lanahan impresses all who knqw him with the fact that 
he is thoroughly conversant with the subjects he teaches ; and, when 
we say that his life is a shining example of the precepts he imparts in the class- 
room, we pav him the highest compliment of which the admiring Class of 1906 is 
capable of giving. 

Professor Lanahan was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 19th, 1873. 
His boyhood and youth were spent in Baltimore County. His early education was 
received in the public schools of Baltimore and Baltimore County. He entered 
the Baltimore City College in the Fall of 1888, graduating from this institution in 
June, 1893, winning, upon graduation, one of the first grade Peabody prizes. He 
then entered Johns Hopkins University in October, 1893, winning the Hopkins 
scholarship on entrance, and an honorary Hopkins scholarship in each of the two 
succeeding years. While at Johns Hopkins, Professor Lanahan pursued the 
iMathematical-Physical Course, graduating with degree of Bachelor of Arts in 
June, 1896. Upon graduation, Professor Lanahan was awarded the University 
Scholarship for the ne.xt year, but did not accept it. He entered the service of 
the Engineering Department of the Seaboard Air Line as assistant engineer, 
with headquarters at Portsmouth, Virginia. In 1898, Professor Lanahan came to 
the Maryland Agricultural College. He spent the Summer of 1900 in higher 
studies in his chosen work at the L'niversity of Chicago, taking up further post- 
graduate work at Cornell LTniversity in 1902. He now occupies the position of 
Professor of Physics and Civil Engineering in the Faculty of this College, and 
the sincere hope of the Class of 1906 is that our Alma Mater may retain him as 
one of her instructors for many years to come.

Pete, though of mar- 
His earlv education 



"Pete" dropped from under the 
stork's wing on the 28th of Septem- 
ber, 1882. He landed in the small 
townlet of Bucktown, Dorchester 
County, and right then and there be- 
gan the life of an orator. Do not misconstrue my meaning, 
velous lung power, was a thoroughly submissive youngster. 
was absorbed in the public .schools and high schools of Camljridge. 

He is a Ixmi leader, as his record shows, being Captain of the Baseball 
Team and President of our class for two years. His work on the Baseball 
team is great. He can twirl the ball even better than his words of oratory, if such 
a thing is possible. .As President of our class he fills the bill as it should be filled, 
and we know that if he receives as good treatment from the world as we have 
received from him, he will be successful in anything he undertakes.

"The mintage of wisdom is to show 
that rest is rust ; and that real life lies 
in love, laughter and work."' 

"A man is always better than his 
creed, unless perchance he makes a 
new one every day." 

Caul — alias "Pete," "Liz" — was 
born on a balmy Summer day, June 
22, 1886, in the city of Buffalo. After 
several attempts at city high school life, his mother saw a bright future before him 
and decided to send him to college. Well, he landed in our midst in the Fall of 
1901, and the next Fall found him a member of the class of naughty six. Pete 
always would study. — when he did not go to Washington — so by his industrious 
efforts he has kept pace with the class to be graduated just fifty years after the 
foundation of the Maryland Agricultural College. It has been said that "Liz" 
would walk three blocks to see if he knew that girl ; anyhow, it is well known by 
all of us that in his large heart there is always room for just one more girl. 

Caul was one of the fastest and headiest quarter-backs even seen in College. 
His ability elected him Captain of the team for Fall, 1905. His ability in the 
basket-ball line is also well known. 

Pete will leave many friends in the Southland when he goes back North (that 
is if one of the gentle sex in Washington will let him), all of whom wish that all 
the pleasures and happiness of the future may be his.

"The valour that struggles is better 
than the weakness that endures." 

"Dick," or "Hosey," as he is some- 
times called, first made known his ad- 
vent into this world by a prolonged 
series of yells and articulations which 
no one understood at the time. T^ater 
it was discovered that he was deliver- 
ing a toast on his favorite topic "The Radios." 

He was born August 23, 1886, in the town of Cambridge, Dorchester County. 
His early education was received at the Cambridge High School, from which he 
was graduate<l with honurs in the Class of "03. He joined our class in its Sopho- 
more year and has been a very jjopular member throughout his course. 

Dick is somewhat of an athelete. having been a member of the I'aseball Team 
each season since he has been at College. His hobliy, however, is oratory, and it 
has been rumored among his fellow cadets thai he would leave his dinner any 
(lay to make a speech. 

lie delights in driving, esiiecially when aceumjianied liy one of the fair sex, 
and his propensity in this direction has led him cm several occasions to purloin 
the team of the chief executive. 

Dick's ambition is to become a great lawyer, and that he may attain the 
hinhesl point of his ambitinn is the wish of the Class of ltj()6.

"Science is a first-rate piece of fur- 
niture for a man's upper chamber if 
he has common sense on the ground 
floor." — Holmes. 

Born January 28, 1884. 

Ingleside, Md., is not a very large 
place, nor had it renown other than 
that it was upon the Eastern Sho' of 
Maryland. But it reached its zenith when it gave birth to James Jesse Thomas 
Graham. Judging from his career at M. A. C, this young gentleman must have 
cut his teeth upon German grammar, and mi.xed mud pies accordingly to chemical 
formulas. 

"Jesse," after completing the course at Ingleside Academy, spent a year in 
the hardware business with a brother, but at the end of that time he resigned 
his business for a college life, and M. A. C. was the gainer thereby. 

Graham's entrance into College was a marked success. Marching into the 
main entrance, he met "Johnnie" Green on the first floor. Dropjiing his suit case 
and advancing with a dilTerential bow and extended hand, exclaimed, "President 

Silvester, I believe!" Now "Jesse" really knew better, for he had been to 

M. -V. C. before with an older brother, but this piece of diplomacy has brought 
him many an "extra"; and even now on Sunday's, when he makes a second huge 
piece of mince pie disappear, if one notices carefully he might see an innocent 
smile playing around the diplomat's mouth. 

Graham doesn't like being called a ladies' man, but two of his classmates 
have made a wager that he will lie tlie first to experience love in a cottage for two.

"Temper is so good a thing that one 
should never lose it." — Anon. 

Mayer, familiarly known to us as 
"Roy," was born at Eckhart, Allegheny County, Md., June 23, 1884. The founda- 
tions of his education was received at the Bell High School of Frostburg, Md., 
his parents having taken him to that town to live while he was very young. 

Entering M. A. C. in the Fall of 1901, lie became a hard student, and has 
continued so since. 

He takes a great interest in Y. M. C. A. work, was chosen as one of the 
delegates to attend the convention at Nashville, Tenn. Although he steps out of 
the path when some of the boys worry him, he is brought back by his room- 
mate — Ingram — the deacon of the M. A. C. 

In athletics he has done fine work, especially in football, being one of the 
pluckiest ])Iayers M. A. C. has ever had. It has been said that if you were to tear 
him to pieces in one game and sew him together again, he would be ready for the 
next. 

Roy is very p()])ular among his classmates and schoolmates, and will not be 
soon forgotten by the boys at M. A. C. 

Although his chief desire was to receive a letter from Frostburg, yet he 
would find time to spend an evening once in a while with some of the fair sex in 
W'asbinglon. 

He has alwa\s had a talent for mechanical work, and has done great 
things in that dcpartnienl. lie expects to follow this work after leaving College, 
and we wish him success. 




JOHN WALLACE MITCHELL Boston, Mas& 

Civil, Engineering. 

Business Manager of the '06 Dra- 
matic Club, Assistant Business Man- 
ager of the "Reveille." 

"Under the weight of his knowl- 
edge, a man cannot move so lightly 
as in the day of his sim])licity." — 
Ruskiii. 

Mitchell, alias "Mitch" and "Gen'l." 
first saw the light of day in New Bed- 
ford, Mass., perilously close to "The 
Hub of the Universe," on October 22. 
1885. Yes, he was born near Boston, 
and, though he is now graduating 
from a college of the South, his coun- 
tenance still reminds one of that cool 
atmosphere peculiar to high latitudes 
and altitudes — especially the high alti- 
tudes, for "Mitch" is 6 ft. 2>1 inches 
in height. 

"Gen'l" tirst attended school at a kindergarten in lUiffalo. From there he 
went to Florida, but that was too hot a climate for the Bostonian. It seems that 
during these years, for some reason or other, gravity — that great ])owcr known 
to physicists — was suspended, and had no influence upon him; but, suddenly, 
that irresistible force got the better of him, and he was drawn back to "The Hub." 
He tarried there only a short while, however — soon taking up his abode on the 
banks of the Hudson. Here he remained for three years; but that magic force 
again got hold on him and he went back to Boston. There he attended several 
schools and graduated from the grammar school in the Spring of 1900, entering 
the High School the following Fall. He was graduated from that institution in 
the Spring of 1904, and entered M. A. C. in the Junior Class in September of 
that vear. "]\Iitch" has always been a good student, especially in mathematics. 

"Gen'l" is verv fond of argument, and nothing suits him better than for some 
one to sav something funny about "The Hub," so that he can remark. "That's 
all vou know about Boston." He is absolutely dotty on ba.seball. and it is firmly 
believed that, some day, he will be manager of the Boston Baseball Club. Mitchell 
takes no active part in the athletics of College, but he is always ready with his 
sage advice. He is a regular walking edtion of sporting statistics, for _\-ou can 
hardlv stump him on a single record that has been made or broken in tlie sporting 
field within the last ten years.

"He is now stretching out his fool- 
ish head to the matrimonial halter." 

"lie attains to whatever he aims at." 

This particular member of our class 
first saw the sunlight in Berkley, Har- 
ford County, Md., October ist, 1884. 
He attended school in Darlington, 
graduating from the High School there in 1903. He then came to ]\I. A. C. and 
entered the Class of '06 in its Sophomore year. 

"Nuts" has been especially active in athletics, being prominent on the track 
team, a member of the basket ball team and one of the strongest players on the 
gridiron. To him is due, in no small measure, the brilliant season of IQ05, which 
stands out a red-letter year in athletic annals of M. A. C. — tlie }'ear we defeated 
St. John's and won the State championship. 

As a s])rinter, "Mac" is unsurpassed, and his magnificent end running — 65 
and 85 yards — between our goals, saved us from more than one defeat. 

Pie is remarkably regular in attending church at Hyattsville, and we are 
inclined to believe the attraction is not entirely spiritual. 

We do not doubt that his sturdy constitution is due to his regular habits : 
for when "Mac" misses breakfast the earth is likely to stand still or the O. D. 
forget to make inspection. "Nuts" has been a good student, and, faithful to his 
earlv ambition, is ending a successful course in agriculture.

-Thomas Carlxlc. 




Alias "Stubby," "Runt," born April 
19, 1886, at Springfield, Prince George 
County, Md. The beginning of his 
education was in the public schools 
of Washington, D. C. Shortly after this he moved to New Jersey, where his 
intimate acquaintance with and exhaustive study of that well-known monster, 
the "Jersey mosquito," paved the way for the love of entomology which he has 
always exhibited at M. A. C. He attended the public schools of New Jersey and 
also those of Batimore, Md., graduating from the latter in the month of June, 
1902. 

He entered the Freshman Class of M. .\. C. in September, 1902, and has 
pursued the Agricultural course since his entrance. 

He is small in stature, but very highly respected by all. His chief delight is 
collecting and distributing laundry. Woe be to the small boy whose laundry money 
is not promptly paid. It has often been rumored around school that he is in the 
near future to start a large steam laundry at M. A. C. in partnership with our 
friend "Johnnie." 

His work as end man in the minstrel show was very clever and received much 
applause.

"He will speak to you in silence." 

"Shikes" presented us with his pres- 
ence in the Fall of ninetecn-three. He 
was born in Berlin, on the Eastern 
shore (not Berlin. Germany, al- 
tliough he has peculiarities foreign to 
Eastern Shore). 

Throughout his early career. Show- 
ell had a wide experience in edu- 
cational channels. He has captured a 
couple of dozen of "Sheepskins" from 
numerous schools throughout the 
East. (Some of these were Locust 
Dale Academv and Lexington High School.) These he bore to this institution in 
great triiimiih. We, therefore, expected good things from him, and he has come 
well up to our expectations. He is holding his own with us with a fine record. 

"Shikes" is a great admirer of the girls, who in turn admire him for his splen- 
did mezzo-soprano-falsetto voice. Scarcely a night passes when Vocke is not lulled 
to sleep by this soothing voice to the tunc of "Dear Old Girl" or "Nearer, My 
God, to Thee." 

"Shike's" greatest amI)ition in life is to be a preacher. We wisli for him a 
great success, and .sym])athize with his congregation.

Thomas, alias "Mary," was born at 
Sandy Springs, Montgomery County, 
Maryland, June 17th, 1885. He went 
to several preparatory schools, in- 
cluding Central High School, Wash- 
ington, D. C, and George School, 
Pennsylvania. He came to M. A. C. 
from there, and entered the Sopho- 
more Class. "Marv" is very fond of dancing, as tlie occupants of the room 
below can testify ; and is always glad to execute a few steps for us. He is very 
fond of plants and flowers, and his room resembles a flower garden. He has a 
soft place in his heart for the fair sex and probably the alluring graces of some 
fair one of Eve's daughters, irresistibly impels him to make his frequent visits 
home. Who knows? In spite of his faults, we love him still. In view of the 
high standing, which he has always maintained in his classes and his devotion to 
science, we predict a brilliant success in life for him.

"His mind his kingdom and his 
will his law." — Cowpcr. 

"Baclielor, a peacock ; betrothed, a 
lion : wedded an ass — Oh ! Fate keep 
me the former !" — Spanish Proi'crb. 

"Fred," or "Pee Wee," as some few 
know him, joined the great procession 
of the living on September the 8th, 
1886. He made his debut at Seat 
Pleasant, Maryland. We are inclined 
to believe that this euphonious name 
was given to the place of his nativity posterior to his "joining" as above men- 
tioned. This belief is founded on the fact that his quiet, pleasant, and happv 
nature might well have suggested so Arcadian a name. "Fred" received his 
early education at the ^^'ashington public schools, having finished the course at 
the Peabody Grammar School with high honors before he came to AI. A. C. to 
add glory to the Class of 1906 and the College. 

A part of his early life was spent in Hyattsville, Md. (a fact which even his 
most intimate friends found hard to ascertain, because such pleasant memories 
hang around those years that he cares not to share the blissful memories with 
others). He often goes down to the "Ville" to look over his youthful haunts and 
call back the happy days of the bright past. 

"Fred" entered M. A. C. in the Fall of 1902. He is an unusually good 
student, and has kept up a steady average mark thoughout his course, the figures 
of which show his powers of mind to be of a high order. His classmates found 
a part of his make-up to consist of good business propensities, hence the respon- 
sible offices of Manager of the Basketball Team for two seasons and of Business 
Manager of the "Ri:veii,i.e" were conferred upon him. 

As yet, we believe that the germ of "gct-a-girl-acy," that has been so con- 
tagious among the members of '06, has not found a habitat with him ; but, after 
he is at the head of the Maryland Geological Survey, with headquarters in the 
beautiful "Ville," we tliink that the same old "Catching" disease will seize upon 
him. But — Here's luck to him, whether or not, anywhere, everywhere, and all 
the time !

The subject of this sketch was born at New Market, Virginia, on February 
i8th, 1886. After a few uneventful years in this burg, he crossed the mountains 
to r)ld Lura}-, and it is supposed that he first appeared to the general public wan- 
dering in the Luray Caverns, a three weeks' growth of red bristles on his chin, 
with various treatises upon physiology, psychology and the occult sciences under 
his arm, and rehearsing an oration upon student athletics, labor organizations or 
some kindred subject. He was early attached to the executive stafT of the Luray 
Caverns Co., and was soon promoted to a responsible and influential position 
furnishing the much-famed echo. 

He received his first enlightenment in the public schools of Luray, but early 
betook himself to the source of all learning there to join — now to prepare the 
way for the illustrious class that now claims him. He has the honor to have led 
his class during the last two years of his course. 

More studious than strenuous, his athletic abilities were not disclosed until 
his class needed him for an end in the Junior-Sophomore football game. The 
beginning was not the end, however, as he now appears regularly upon the base- 
ball field. 

To the great misfortune and regret of all concerned. Ferdie's career of 
activity seems to have been permanently checked by the premature disabling of 
both wrists. 

Moral — Look before }ou leap, or beware of Hyattsville.

class roll in the fall of 1902? The problem has no solution, but yet 
we came, lots of us, and what a sorry spectacle we presented. But there was 
great consolation in the way in which we were received, especially by the Class 
of 1905. Their kind and generous hospitality was unsurpassed, and the ways and 
means which they had at their command to show us a good time were to be com- 
plimented. Nothing daunted, however, we bore up bravely and completed the 
Freshman year without any serious accidents. The following year we returned, 
forty strong, advertising the fact generally that we were "It" and "Old Boys." 
Having been taught by the class before us to be generous, considerate and kind, 
we bestowed these virtues upon the Class of 1907, who thanked us most heartily 
for our attention. 

It was about this time that the '05's "air castles" were torn asunder, and that 
their hats fell down over their eyes. We did meet their football team upon the 
campus and hold them down to the score of 5 to "zip." It also happened during 
this term that we demonstrated before the eyes of the world and the high priests, 
our skill and ability in rasing "Hob," generally, on Hollow'een night. However, 
we burned with envy and jealousy toward the Class of 1907 because we did not 
receive the great honor of being termed "Mushroom Heroes." In studies, we 
were an accomplished and brilliant class, breaking several records for high stand- 
ing. We even received fewer zeroes from Professor Lanahan than has any Sopho- 
more Class in the history of the institution ! Although our class roll was deplora- 
bly thinned out at the beginning of our Junior year, the old saying that "Fine 
goods come in small packages" was especially applicable to the noble sixteen 
which returned that Fall. 

We now came to realize more seriously than ever before, that we were sent here 
for a certain purpose — that we were here to lay the foundation upon which our 
life work should rest. We saw clearlv the necessity of making this foundation 



26 



rigid, lasting and strong, so tliat we buckled down to hard work with renewed 
earnestness and enthusiasm until we fairly astounded the Faculty with our 
knowledge and wisdom. It was in this year that there appeared in our midst a 
specimen from the "Hub of the Universe," a man of lengthy stature, of set 
features and Yankee ideas ; a valuable addition to our number. 

At last came the height of our ambition — the Senior year — and with it the 
proverbial dignity and stately bearing. We were now a dozen in number, with 
Ingram, a baker's dozen. In accepting the additional responsibilities, we exerted 
every effort to make this, our last year, a successful one, a year which should be 
an honor to our class and to our College. The term has passed by swiftly and 
smoothly and, we are sure, satisfactorily to both the Faculty and to ourselves. 

During our stay within these walls we have suffered the loss by death of 
two very respected classmates and we wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy to 
the bereaved families. 

And now the time has come when me must lift the protecting wing of our 
beloved College and go forth in the wide world to meet the trials and sorrows, 
the pleasures and sad moments which the future has in store ; and, above all, to 
carry on the good work, which was so well begun, of the honorable Class of 
Nineteen-six. Class ScribK.

Instead of laboring with my imagination to devise a plan by which to draw 
aside the misty curtain which separates the Future from the present, 1 am going 
to ignore the great gulf of time stretching between the present and that eventful 
day to be, leaving it to you, dear reader, to imagine the course of events and to 
comprehend the pictures which I am now going to present. 

At last the great day came. His Excellency, Mr. Bassett, and I were riding 
out from Washington on a splendid Pullman electric car marked "College." We 
must have been going at the rate of two hundred miles an hour, for it seemed 
scarcely a minute from the time we left the Grand Union Terminal until we had 
reached the "\'ille." The "Mile" it is still called, but now it is a large and pros- 
perous city under the mayorship of — I won't say whom at present. Arriving at 
College avenue, we were surprised to find that instead of alighting there, as was 
customary in the days of our college life, we switched off and were really riding 
to College upon the newly laid "Spur track," which had been surveyed enough 
times by students in previous years to have made a picket fence out of the stakes 
used. At the foot of College hill, to the left, stretched out, in brilliant green, the 
magnificent athletic field which Mayor — pardon me — Mr. Dixon had surveyed 
during his Senior year at College. Beyond rose in majestic grandeur the great 
"Alumni Arch," with its graceful metal span and its imposing massive pillars of 
brick and stone. Upon leaving the car in rear of the Electrical Department, we 
beheld picturesque buildings scattered artistically among the forest trees, repre- 
senting the different departments of the College. Going into the great reception 
hall, we were greeted heartily by our classmates, most of whom had arrived. Mr. 
Waters and Mr. Mitchell, in accordance with their old custom, came out on the 
last car, that is, the last one they could take not to miss the great feast. 

The banquet was prepared. It was a magnificent sight to behold such a 
noble body of men seated around a banquet table, which was literally covered with 
gorgeous flowers and dainty dishes. Above, the mercury arc lamps cast a soft, 
white light over all. Mr. Bassett, having been our honorable Class President, 
and being unanimously chosen toast master, was at the head of the table, while 
Mr. Mayer (probably because he thought he could get more to eat) was at the 
foot. The words which I am about to write are those spoken by our toastmaster 
(with apologies to Mr. Bassett). 

"Fellows ; perchance, in the many years which have come and gone since last 

we were gathered together as classmates within these walls, each of you has spent 

an interesting career — per-adventure. \\'ould it not afford us nnich ])leasure to 

have each relate the happenings of his life since he trod upon the threshhold of 

the wide world as an alumnus of this College? But let us first drink to the health 

of our fellow classmates and to the honor of our .Alma Mater, which we love 

so dearly. I will commence on my right and go regularly annmrl the banquet 

table.

(ClIARLKS Svi.VESTER RiDGWAY.) 

" Stubby, tell us, if you can. 
What you have done, my little man. 
Since you, your earnest life began." 

"After a post-graduate course here, in which I took up a 'Perusal' of vege- 
table pathological literature and a study of ornithology and histology from an 
economical standpoint, I pursued advanced studies in botany, palaeontology and 
'girlography' at the Johns Hopkins University, graduating in the Spring of 191 1. 
During the Summers of these years, I carried on botanical surveys throughout 
the neighboring sections of Prince George, Montgomery and Anne Arundel 
Counties (and parts of Baltimore City). Tiring of this life, I sought work in 
town and scarcely had I reached Baltimore when I was offered the position of 
manager of Archer's Laundry, the previous incumbent having died suddenly. 
In consideration of my interest in this work, even while here at College, it is 
needless to mention that I accepted the position without delay. Acquiring here a 
knowledge of laundry methods and enough money to support me, I launched into 
the business on my own account, erecting a magnificent up-to-date laundrv on 
Howard street, installing the most improved machinery, some of which were mv 
own patents. For convenience, I had steps placed at each machine in order that 
I might see that the moving parts were working properly. I am still proprietor 
of this establishment, which is now the largest hot-air laundry in the South. My 
vocation was not such as to prevent my engaging in other work, so that I became 
the head of the State Botanical Survey. It is hardly worth while to say that z^'c 
are living in a cozy cottage in Roland Park." 

"Well spoken and of great interest," said our toastmaster, "Even a laundrv- 
man is known by his shirts, whether they be clean or whether thcv be white." 

(John Li-vrciiRR Showeli,.) 

"Shikes, my boy, jiray tell us — do — 
What fame 'Dad Time' hath linnight to \ou." 

"L'pon leaving tliis institution of learning I ])roudl\- bore home ni\- long- 
looked for and much-cherished sheep.skin. ('I — 1' might sav here that 'I — I' 
'Spose' it would be of interest to some of you to know that I have twenty-nine of 
them now.) The following Fall I went to Jolms llo]ikins, completing a classical 

30 



course witli honors in 191 1. Not being content with a mere speaking acquaint- 
ance of French, German, Spanish, Greek and Irish, and only a partial knowledge 
of theology, ethnology and psycological-good-common-sense, I went to Princeton 
the following year and put on some finishing touches with the classical course 
there. Well armed now with high, lofty, noble thoughts and a fluent tongue, 
conversant with fifteen languages, all the way from China to Boston, I bore down 
upon the little town of Berlin, on the Eastern Shore. To my surprise, the church 
there had had no minister for some time, so that I was appointed leader of the con- 
gregation. 'I — r must admit that 'I — I' experienced no little embarassment the 
first time I ascended the pulpit. The choir was singing 'Nearer, My God to 
Thee,' and I found myself singing tenor, which was not a dignified procedure 
for a minister at all. I am still following the ministry and enjoy the life im- 
mensel}'. My greatest trouble is trying to keep awake during services for, as 
was my old custom, I never go to bed before midnight. I also have a weak throat, 
because the violent change from a red bandana handkerchief to the vestment was 
too much for my constitution." 

"'Tis a noble man indeed who hath spoken these words," said the toastmaster, 
"and right proud we should be of him." 



(Frederick Ransel Brooks Waters.) 

"Fred, what of interest have you for us to hear. 
Since you have been a far-famed engineer?" 

"After graduating at M. A. C, I went to Purdue University, completing 
tliere the course in civil engineering. In the Fall 1912 I was appointed to the 
position of manager of an e.xcavating station on the Panama Canal, near the City 
of Colon. The following Fall we finished the huge task, and the greatest 
engineering feat in the history of the universe was finally completed. It was an 
awe-inspiring sight to behold the mighty waters of an angry sea rush in when the 
last bit of earth was removed. The next Spring, I returned to my old home at 
Seat Pleasant to spend a Summer of recuperation. I was glad to get back again 
into a climate where there were not more than ten mosquitoes to a square inch, 
and where I was safe to go out on a clear day without an umbrella. Between that 
time and the present, I have superintended the construction of a number of steam, 
electric and gasoline railroads leading out from the Grand Union Terminal. One 
of these goes past my home at Seat Pleasant, another to Sandy Spring, in Mont- 

31 



gomery, and one to this very institution. Little did I dream that I would ever 
have the pleasure of laying the "Spur Track" which I so cnrcfiill\ surveyed in 
the Spring of 1906. I also instigated the removal of the 'ii-35 suburban car,' 
although 1 hated to lose an old friend. I am, as yet. a bachelor. I have never 
felt the pangs of love nor experienced the embarrassment of enormous bills from 
the florist, furrier or milliner." 

"Vou have surely had a career to be prouil of, ^)ne which is an honor to our 
class."

" 'Mitch.' — Forth fmni the Hub, along one of the s])okes come forth. 
And sing us a song of the icy Xorth." 

"After graduating here at I\l. A. C, I went home to my native people and 
remained unemployed for a year or so in order that I might beaome thoroughly 
naturalized, and have a rest, something which I needed greatly ; for mv cares 
were many, my troubles great, and my toils unceasing while here at College. 
Showing great interest in the affairs of the American League Baseball team of 
Boston, I was appointed assistant manager in the Spring of 1910. So well were 
they pleased with my work that I became manager the following year. I came 
to be regarded as the final authority upon all subjects pertaining to baseball, and 
to some other things as well. In 1903, I published a book of rules which was used 
exclusively, that year, liy the National I^eague players. Several new rules were 
inserted. One was, that a man shall not run bases faster than twenty-five miles 
an hour; another, that a pitcher shall not describe a circle of more than ten feet 
in diameter when delivering the ball. ( This regulation would necessarily put 
Mr. Dixon out of the box). My rule-book was so heartily approved that revised 
editions have been in constant use ever since. I am now President of the National 
League itself. In U)20. I l^ec^nie ])roprietor of three thr'eatres in I^oston and one 
in Washington, to which I gave the name of 'Tobasco.' I also own a nnisic 
establishment and ])ride m\sclf in whistling the latest hits even liefore thev go 
to press." 

"Verily, this classmate of ours liath done ni)bl\' before our eves."

(Jami-:s Jkssk Thomas Graiia.m.) 

"In Jesse we liavc a learned man, a chemist of renown, 
He tliinks in German, speaks in Dutch, can write it up-sidc-tlown." 

"After completing- the undergraduate course in chemistry here, I returned 
the following Fall, and took up advanced studies along- the line of my Thesis, 
making a careful determination of the nitrogen in shoe leathers, and also the per- 
centage of nutriment in 'College Grub.' (In this work I had to resort freqtiently 
to the microscope.) Completing the course, T sought further information in this 
direction. Accordingly, I entered Johns Hopkins in the Fall of 1907, making an 
exhaustive studv of such compounds as phenol-phthalien and para-vetra-methyl- 
tliamino-benzophenone ; also conducting original experiments with radio-activity 
and mental inactivity. Leaving this University, I was still thirsty for a more com- 
prehensive study of the subject, so that I prepared to go to Leipsig, Germany, 
in the Spring of 1913. After four years of hard study and a short tour of Europe, 
I returned home well equipped with the science of chemistry and with chemical 
names, some of which were at least three yards long, requiring for enunciation an 
interpreter, and one skilled in tongue gymnastics. I had not been home more 
than a month before I was asked to take the chair of chemistry at the Johns 
Hopkins University, which was then vacant. Between my hours of study and 
scholastic duties, and, as a means of recreation, I teach dancing and singing, from 
which I derive a great deal of pleasure. I subscribe to four German papers and 
now nearly all my thoughts are in German. I even think of my wife as 'Liebe 
Lizzie." " 

"Jess, old boy, I thought you'd be a 'Dutchman" from the way xou used to 
fire German at us 'many moons ago.' " 



(GE(jrge Milkoy ]\L\yer.) 

"Roy, tell us wherefore it doth exist 
That you are a great monopolist."' 

"After leaving M. .A. C, I returned to the high, lofty, exhilerating, 'Muck-e- 
muck' clin-iate of Frostburg, going into the furniture bu.siness, making both 
antif[ue and modern styles. As fast as I made mone)- I invested it in coal luines 
throughout Western Maryland until, about the year 1920, I owned practically all 

33 



the collieries operating at that time in Maryland. Not being entirely satisfied, I 
speculated in !iatural gas well in West Virginia, in oil wells in Pennsylvania and 
in love affairs in Frostburg. I was universally successful. This very institution 
has been buying coal from me for the past seven years, and I guarantee the 
authorities that it does not contain more than 25 per cent, of slate. 'Tis very 
obvious that the skill and ability of manipulating problems in mechanics, which I 
acquired here at College, has been practically of no use to me in my life work; 
liowever, I have become so thoroughly acquainted with the different locomotives 
on the r>. & O. R. R. that I can tell the number of any one of them at least a mile 
off and I can even tell which way a train is going by its whistle. I was elected to 
the State Senate in the Fall of 1923 from Alleghenv County and am still acting 
in that capacity." 

"Fellows," said our toastmaster, "I have oft heard it spoken of this classmate 
of ours that he could tell what jjriced coal a passing train was using and could 
even locate a loose bolt on the engine at the same time." 



(Li'.Muia, Fhrdin.xnd ZERKKr,.) 

"Ferdy, my boy, what have you to say 
C)f your life at the Caverns of old Lnray?" 

"Relieving the pressure from nw shoulders in the Spring of 1906, I 
returned to the caverns. Having had a great interest in Luray Cave since my 
early childhood days, I determined to become proprietor of those vast subter- 
ranean chambers; to make the place more attractive generally, and, above all, 
to make it a paying investment. Consequently, I set about to borrow capital in 
order to accomplish the end I had in view. It was not until 1914 that I was out 
of debt and enjoying prosperity. By means of excavations and 'In-cave-ations.' 
I succeeded in making a cavern rivaling the one in Kentucky in brith extent 
and grandeur. Between times, in the remainder of niv life, I have been some- 
what of an author, producing, in 1918, a three thousand page book ( in six vol- 
umes), entitled, 'The Eccentricities of My Life.' I have also written a book 
called "The Rise and Fall of the Sunday Journal." I have succeeded in obtain- 
ing a number of patents on a])pliances for bracing the wrists and ankles which 
have come into great po]iularitv with "would-be" baseball placers. In CDiiclusion, 
I might say that in the Spring of 191 5, I captured a ]3retty little girl, and we are 
still living happily together "mid the foothills of Virginia, in the realm of the vast 
and boundless Luray." 

"Fellows, we should be most proud to have such a fine specimen from the 
Caverns among our number."'

"Alphonse, my darling, Alphonse, so fair, 
Can an apple possibly change to a pear ?" 

"Finding that the Department of Agriculture would offer me a much better 
position if I possessed an M.S. from this institution of knowledge and learning, 
I decided to return the following Fall and make an exhaustive study of Pollen. 
I became so thoroughly acquainted with the different species of the common cul- 
tivated plants that I could easily tell what the name of an individual plant was 
in the dark, how old it was and what shaped pollen it had. In the Fall of 1908, I 
accepted a position in the Department of Agriculture and conducted experiments 
in plant breeding. I have been a plant breeder ever since until now. I am known 
as the Wizard of the East, just as Luther Burbanks was many years ago called 
the Wizard of the West. I have made many valuable crosses, some of which 
are of great commercial importance. By the careful grafting of a Ben Davis 
apple blossom upon a twig of a white i^ine tree, I produced a most luscious pine- 
apple, which was so hardy that it could be grown as far north as Alaska. I also 
obtained a seedless variety of cotton, a seedless variety of wheat, and a seedless 
chestnut. I, too, have been successful from a 'Matrimonial' standpoint, and am 
living comfortably in a little cottage in Roger's extension of Mt. Ranicr." 

"Whoever believed that Alphonse would become a Wizard of Horticulture? 
What a vast change from the managing and coaching of college scrub teams" !

(Harold John C.\ul.) 

"Liz, if it would not be of too much bother. 
We would like to hear of yourself and father." 

"I went to Puerto Rico in the Summer of 1906 and spent two years of recrea- 
tion with my mother, who had also gone there the preceeding Fall for a rest. 
I began to look like a dago, to talk like a dago and sometimes I really didn't know 
whether I was a dago or an actress. In the Fall of 1908 I received a message 
from a friend of mine, who was an official in the New York Central Railroad, 
announcing that a certain position in the office building of the company at Buffalo 
was vacant and directing that I come at once if I cared to accept it. As my 
acquired Spanish beauty was only skin deep, I was still an American citizen at 
heart, so that I hastened to Buffalo forthwith. It took me sometime to explain 
to the friend who had sent for me that I was the same old Harold. Even my 
father did not recognize — but, etc. In consideration of the interest which I took 

35 



ill the affairs of the company, I received promotions steadil}- until, in i<)-4. T 
became president of the finest railroad system in the world. My duties were not 
such that I could not pose also as a great social man. In 191 5 I became president 
of the great Alpheus Dancing Club of Buiifalo. I have conducted several minstrel 
shows and have taken the part of the 'Leading Lady' several times at the Star 
Theatre of that city. I also speculated in a skating rink, having Charlie Lippin- 
cott to assist me, and we found it a paying investment. The happiest day of life 
was on Friday, the thirteenth day of May, nineteen-thirteen ! However, I will 
not take up valuable time to explain, except to say that Cupid was involved." 

"Pete, I really believe you are growing younger instead of older. The only 
material change that I can see is in your whiskers."

"Mary, Mary, so contrary, how does your orchard grow? 
Full of sticks and seeds and briars and weeds, now tell me is that so?" 

"On leaving these dear old walls of our Alma Mater, I returned to mv home, 
at Sandy Spring, where I took charge of my estate and commenced to put in 
]>ractice what I learned about agriculture and horticulture. In the course of 
my experiments, I have succeeded in producing wheat without a hull, corn with- 
out a cob and potatoes that need no digging. You can find in my orchard, which 
is one of the most extensi\'e in the State, many crosses which mv classmate, Mr. 
McNutt. has brought to light through his untiring investigations of the science 
of pollenization. There can be found his crab-apple-cherry, his grape-gooseberry, 
his ever popular pineapple and others. I have not neglected the social advantages 
of a prosperous farmer's life. Many an evening you could have seen me in my 
'Bubble' speeding along the country road in quest of a fair damsel to go on a 
moonlinght spin ; or, jjcrhaps, I would have been entertaining a lively crowd at 
my spacious country home with a dance and a little side issue of my old favorite 
of 'Clogging.' Following the old Quaker custom, in the year of 1912, I took unto 
me a wife from out of the beautiful city of Washington and carried her to the 
fair hills of Montgomery County, where we have been spending our years in 
peace and happiness. Having been remarkably successful in my occupations, 
due, in no small measure, to the knowledge I received here, I have been enabled 
to retire from business and my wife and I now spend most of our time flying 
through the air in my new and luxurious 'Birdless Carriage.' Tomorrow I 
would like all of you to 'Come Take a Trip in My Airship.' " 

"Your life certainly has been full of peace and happiness," said our toast- 
master.

(Richard Hooper Dixon.) 

"And now, my classmates, let's keep very still 
While we listen to the Mayor of Hyattsville." 

"Upon graduating, I was forced to return to the Eastern Shore, because I 
had no other place to go, although it was sore against my will. During the few 
years that I remained at home I conducted extensive surveys throughout the areas 
of sandy Dorchester and Queen Anne Counties for the construction of highways. 
In some places the sand was so deep and the instruments sank so far that I almost 
had to stand on my head to read them. During the baseball season I twirled the 
ball for the Cambridge team. In 19 lo, I superintended the grading for a run- 
ning track here at this institution around the athletic field, which was completed 
during the early Spring of 1907. Captain Silvester was so much pleased with 
iuy work that he recommended me to the authorities of Hyattsville to conduct 
the survey which they desired to have made in order that the rapidly increasing- 
neighboring villages — Riverdale, College I'ark, 'Berwyn,' Melrose and Bladens- 
burg — might be consolidated into one large city. I now made Hyattsville my 
home and took a great interest in public affairs. In 1923, I was elected Mayor 
of that city and am still holding the honorable position. The following year, I 
became proprietor of the 'Lakeland Hat Factory,' having a special form, size 8J/2, 
made for my own use. I sincerely hope that all of you will call to see us before 
going away, at my home at No. 1914 Prince Frederick street." 

"Dick, although I have seen a great deal of you since 1906, I enjoyed your 
biographv none the less, and I feel that I can speak for the class in congratulating 
}'ou upon your success." 



(Leonard Edv^tard Bassett.) 

"I have been talking off and on throughout the live-long show. 
But if vou care my life to hear, I'll speak a word or so." 

"With a tear in my eye I bade farewell to my Alma Mater and returned to 
the sandhills of Dorchester County. Having a great liking for all subjects per- 
taining to the administration and public affairs in general, I became a politician 
and took my seat in the Senate Chamber at Annai)olis in the Spring of 1917. I 
presented several bills that year. One was that all State-supported colleges 
should have an ap])ropriation for the maintenance of baseball ; another was on 

37 



the order of an anti-ciearctte bill. With mighty bursts of oratory, I succeeded in 
putting these through with unanimous approval. In 1920, I became United States 
Senator, but, seeking higher levels, I became Governor of Maryland in IQ24 and 
necessarily President of the Board of Trustees of this College. It was / who 
inaugurated the Maryland Agricultural College as a co-educational institution, 
and it was / who negotiated to have a Domestic and Fancy-work Department 
here. Although my career has been a busy one, I have found time to visit the 
Capital City occasionally, and to consult with Cupid, who sped forth his quivering 
arrow of love and matrimony in the Fall of 1915.' 

"And now, fellow classmates, allow me to propose a toast to this illustrious 
school of ours. She has furnished us with many friends, many joys and sorrows. 
She has placed us in a bond of connnon sympathy that is ne.xt to brotherly love. 
She has set a standard for us to look up to and to strive for, and is always willing 
to help us on our pathway to eternal happiness. In our great battles of life, may 
we always think of her with respect and have a warm affection and heartfelt 
gratitude for the many services given us during our short stay within her dear old 
walls. May she continue to prosper and become the guardian of many future 
generations of young Americans, bringing them up to be pure and unsullied citi- 
zens, an honor to herself and to our nation."

f|i6tor|) of t!)E Class of '07 



Til HE NUCLEUS of this great bunch of intellectuaUty was first collected 
- within the walls of this institution of learning in the Fall of 1903. 
Little did those dream, who first saw this band of callow and timid 
youths, that in it were contained those germs of genius which would 
cause the name of M. A. C, and particularly the name of the Class of 
1907, to be resounded far and wide. 

But great men cannot be kept down, and in despite the efforts of terrible 
Sophomores, who, viewing with envy the achievements of this noble band, used 
every means in their power — the means usually took the form of a paddle vigor- 
ously applied — to crush them, they pressed onward and onward, some even pass- 
ing first term exams. — a thing almost unheard of before. 

By X-mas this class had instilled such a respect for themselves in the hearts 
of the upper classes by their wonderful achievements, that they were looked upon 
with awe, and never afterward molested. 

But the members of the class were distinguishing themselves in other ways 
than in the class-room. In football, baseball, on the track and in all the branches 
of sport the representatives of 07 covered themselves with glory, almost invariably 
carrying ofif the highest honors. 

When the June exams, were over, and those hills of difficulty had been glori- 
ously surmounted, the members of this now famed class went to their vacation 
with the feeling of satisfaction that they had accomplished great things, and that 
the progress of the world has been greatly advanced. 

Vacations over, the following September found nearly all the old members 
back at College, with a large number of new men, whose intellectual attainments 
having been readily recognized by the Faculty, they were awarded the distinction 
of enrollment in this illustrious class. 

Fully alive to the added honors and responsibilities which as members of the 
Sophomore Class, they fell heir to, they at once began to impress upon the minds 
of the incoming "Rats" a proper respect for the honor, discipline, and customs of 
M. A. C, accomplishing this great purpose with a degree of completeness never 
before known. In fact, so impressed became the "Rats" with the dignity and 
greatness of the Class of '07 that upon the approach of a member of that class 
a "Rat" would fall into sudi a fit of fear and trembling that it sometimes 
required a dose of Dr. Eversfield's Famous Prescription to restore him. 

44 



In order to convince the inhaljitants of a certain town — Ilyattsville by name — 
of its prowess and attainments, the class visited this place during the proctorship 
of a certain Cobb, and while being hospitably entertained by him demonstrated 
to him the utter inefficiency of the prison regulations of his city by a practical 
illustration of applied mechanics. So thoroughly was this done that the valiant 
Cerberus of the law has ever since had a greater respect for higher education. 

During the year this class was instrumental in bringing about many reforms. 
The most important of these was the introduction of the "honor system." It 
has been a great success, and its introduction reflects great credit on the class. 

As in the preceding year, the representatives of '07 distinguished themselves 
on the athletic field, the class being well represented on all the first teams. 

I must not forget the class football game this year with the Juniors. It 
really was a farce. The Juniors were outclassed from the start, not having a 
ghost of a show, and at the end of the first half they gave up and refused to play 
the remainder of the game. I will carefully refrain from telling the score, owing 
to my charitable consideration for the vanquished. 

The Easter and June "exams." were successfully overcome, and our Sopho- 
more days, filled with noble achievements, were at an end. 

September, 1905, found us nearly all back. Some of the fellows, however, 
decided that the}' could best serve the interests of humanity by remaining with the 
new Sophomore Class, giving those unsophisticated youths the benefit of associa- 
tion with mature minds. We were sorry to lose them, l)ut their magnanimity 
meets with universal approval. 

The hand of Death was laid upon our class this year, taking from us one of 
our brightest and most interesting members. We honor his memory as that of 
a departed friend. 

Owing to the very natural timitlity of the Sophomores the class football 
game was called ofif, and we were — glad. 

Our Christmas holidays were pleasantly spent, and we returned to College 
with a greater zeal for our work, which subsequent results have shown. 

The usually tedious Winter months have passed more quickly than usual, 
owing to the mildness of the weather, and we find ourselves once more in the 
midst of a beautiful Spring. 

This brings our history nearly up to date, and, looking back, we think we 
have made a record worthy of us, and worthy of our .\lma Mater. 

This has not been accomplished without hard work, for we believe tliat 
"nil sine magna labore vita dcdit movtalibus" — for the benefit of the underclass- 
men, I will say this is neither French nor German — and we face the future witli 
a renewed energy, born of obstacles overcome, hoping for new victories, and 
striving to keep the banner of the Class of 1907 where it has ever been — in the 



foreground.

©istorji) of Class of '08 



IN THE 1"'ALL of nineteen hundred and four ihe Alarxland Agricultural 
College welcomed the largest Freshman Class that ever passed beneath 
her historic portals. Our high water mark was reached when no less 
than seventy-three lusty fellows answered to the roll-call of nineteen- 
eight. The antique miniature railroad station called College Park, 
by courtesy of M. A. C, was buried in an avalanche of trunks and valises as they 
were ruthlessly tossed from the car by the callous baggage master. The College 
wagon was taxed to its utmost capacity in conveying all this baggage to the 
barracks, and loud were the lamentations of him whose trunk did not arrive in 
time to enable him to sleep between blankets that night. The utmost confusion 
prevailed in the wild scramble for rooms, and lucky indeed was he who was so 
fortunate as to secure a bed, for his more belated classmate was forced to content 
himself with a mattress upon the floor. 

Within a few days, liowever, we settled down into the regular college routine 
work, and our position in the institution as "Rats" was soon impressed U]5on us 
in a very forcible manner. Still homesickness an^ong us was a nonentitv. \\'e 
were so engrosed in our studies and the different athletic sjjorts that we had little 
time for needless brooding. ( )ur class took a great interest in football and we 
were well represented on b(_)th teams. ( )ur career during the first few months 
.was uneventful, and we all liailed with great delight the time when we should 
go home on our first vacation — Thanksgiving. To be sure, we got but a glimpse 
.of our homes, but when we returned we took up our studies with renewed energy 
and began to ]irepare for those dreaded exams, at Christmas. 

We commenced tlie .\'ew ^\■ar with lessened numbers, but with much greater 
confidence in ourselves. 1 laving now become familiar with the surroundings, our 
class began to take a more active part in the social events of the Colle.ge. With tlie 
advent of Spring oiitiloor games became possible, and a.t^ain we llncked to the cam- 
pus, tliis time ti.i i)r(.)ve our worth with the .glove and bat. .\nd jud.ging from the 
number of our nu'ii on the ti'am we succeeded fairly well. Hut Ivister time came 
rolling around am! with it those terrible exams, and after them^ — another general 
exodus. 

50 



l'"rnni Kastcr till JiiiK' \\c spciU our recreation hours in playing' l)ascl>all, 
tennis, anil in sprinting; on the running- traeic. At last, however, Conimcncemcnt 
Day arrived. .\ year's association had imited us more firmly than we deemed 
I)ossibIe : but finally after we had taken a sorrowful farewell of each other, we 
went our several ways, full of great expectations for the coming year and rejoic- 
ing in the fact that we were at last fnll-fledged Sophomores. 

( )n returning in the following September we were grieved to find that man_\' 
of our classmates had fallen by the wayside, _\et their places were partially filled 
by new members, and we entered our Sophomore year the strongest class on 
record. We now realized the responsibilities imi)osed on us as "old boys" and the 
l)rerogatives lx'U)nging to us b}' virtue of inheritance. In a verv short while the 
Freshmen were informed that they must be anything liut "fresh," and as a word 
to the wise is sufficient, very little trouljle came from that (|uarter. 

The remarkable success of the M. .\. C. Fcx)tball team in the season of Hp3 
was largely due to the prominent part ])layed by the members of nineteen-eight. 
( )iu- class furnished the star pla_\er and cajjtain. Mr. Cooper, and a majority of 
the team was from our number. In fact, we were so strong in this respect that 
the annual game between the Sophomores and the Juniors failed to materialize, 
because the Juniors were afraid to risk their wt^mderful (?) reputation of the 
previous year against such odds, and wisely withdrew to avert certain defeat. 

The Xmas e.xams. failed to claim its usual nunilier of victims in the Sn|)ho- 
more year and our class returned after the holidays with but a verv few missing. 
( )ur class is large, very large, yet, contrary to the general rule in such cases, we 
ha\e not only (|uantity but also quality. Anil now as the time fast api)roacbes 
when we nnist assume the dignitv of Juniors, mav the prosperitv which has been 
ours so long continue, and may no deed ever be attached to us which shall mar 
our unsullied name.

Jlifitorj) of tfjt Class of '09 



SEPTEMBER 21, 1903, ushered in through the portals of old M. A. C. 
nearly fifty "Freshies,"' much smaller tlian tlie class of "Xauglity 
Eight" ; but what was lacking in numbers was more than counterbal- 
anced in quality. Some were "holdovers" from the "Prep." and others 
were new students, who showed their keen sense of good judgment in 
selecting old AI. A. C. for their hive of work and study for the next four years. 

The members of this class were soon broken to harness, and a few days found 
them deeply engaged in study and eager participants in the various college sports, 
of which at that season, football was the most prominent. 

This feature of college athletics engrossed the attention of all the students, 
and great enthusiasm was shown and appreciated by the fast-growing football 
squad, in which '09 was well represented. 

When the College team was selected '09 was found represented, having fur- 
nished one of its best players, who was noted for his clever handling and kicking 
of the "pigskin." 

The battles of a successful football season and our various studies occupied 
our minds and time, and Thanksgiving Day — occurring later than usual — was 
none the less welcomed. Heretofore it had been customary to devote four or five 
days to the observance of this holida}- season, but this Fall one day was all that 
could be spared for the purpose. 

The days between Thanksgiving and Christmas soon passed, and the first 
term "exams." were safely over. The coming of the gladsome Yuletide was 
heartily greeted by all, its patron Santa Claus being much in evidence, and our 
class was on his books for many good things. 

The Christmas season over and the New Year about making its advent, saw 
our class back to our studies with nearly its full quota, having lost but two mem- 
bers. This defection was made good by the appearance of several new faces. 

Fairly started in our work again, basketball was the attraction in athletic 
circles, and, of course, '09 was represented on the College team. 

After the decline of the basketball fever the "Sophs" deemed it their duty 
to make things a little more interesting to the new "Freshies" just to keep them 
from being despondent and getting "homesick." 

55 



Boisterous March init in ap|)earance and witli it also came baseballs and hats, 
mitts antl masks. The baseball team has been selected and considerable practice 
is being taken for the opening game. Several of its representatives are from the 
Class of '09. 

Now, while the March winds are blowing and the second term "exams." 
upon us, we are busily preparing our studies, as we must be as proficient in our 
scholastic duties as in our athletics. 

With the coming of milder, warm April we hope to furnish many candidates 
to the track team, the jiresent outlook being very favorable. 

The Class of 'og will find it pleasing in the future to recur to the ]:)ast, that 
during its existence the Semi-Centennial of the Maryland Agricultural College 
occurred, and was celebrated with imposing ceremonies March 6, igofi, the 
Governor of the great State of Maryland being the principal guest and speaker. 

As the "Rex'KH.i.k" must be put to press before this history can be com|)leted, 
future happenings must be left to prophecy until June finds us members of the 
"Soph. Class." 

At the present rate of progress we can but ])ro]3hesy that we will have a 
very profitable year, and that we will all come back next vear and be faithful 
comrades in all the trouble and triumphs of the Sophomore Class. 

We can now only hope and pra}' for a winning finish, and success in all mn- 
studies and undertakings.

little uns, fat uns, lean uns — cutting all soft talk an' coming down to 
straight si^eel, some of us looked pretty near human. l!ut most of 
us looked like we had first s])rung up from de tall timbers in de l)ack woodlets. 
Small? well cum here! Say! Why some of dem guys wasn't out of de safety 
pinage yet. Young? Why durn my buttons, some wus so young dey wus hooked 
up with "gentle pusuaders" (milk bottles). Well, as I wus saying, we cum 
miogating up to dis here joint antl de first to cast his peepers on our managerie 
wus a old guy wid a bunch of X'irginia creepers under his chin. 

We wus steered to de President, who handed us de glad mit, den knocked 
us down to de high and lofty who slings de grub in de mess hall. After all dis 
hot air and red tape, we wus shoved into our holes by a guy wid a couple of 
sparklers on his shoulders. Right den and dere the big show opened. Honest, 
Bill, I never seen anybody so popular as me. Foist thing a bunch of mugs 
comes in and gives me de glad smile and makes demselves to home like Miss 
\'anderbilt was giving a pink tea. Dey asked me a million questions, and showed 
me a bunch of good things dey had done to dem de year before, but I wus game all 
right, all right. You know me. I ain't no four-flusher or Sloppy-Slop-Willie. 
I knowed dey done it out of kindness fer me own good. Well, of all the lone- 
some puplish blue kinds you ever seen I wus de woist. I looked like a cat with 
de measles. I'd a given thirty plunks just to be home wid me old man even if 
he did tan me hide fer sneezing at de wrong time. It didn't last long, because 
every night after I'd shut me lamjis for a snooze, some guys would cum and 
play 'ping-pong wid me, and I was de ball I guess. When dey got through. I 
looked like a cur what had gone through a sausage mill, only I didn't have no 
skin left on me. It sort er made me sore sometime to have some little slob no 
bigger 'n a pint of cider tell me to do his bed or sweep out his room, but I stuck 
to her O. K., and wid all the experience I got I guess I'll make some ])oor soak

TTTT 



Q IX YEARS have passed since the Christian workers of our student body 
^ became organized and planted in the College the most effective and 

necessar_v of our student associations. Without our Athletic Associa- 
tion we could retain our athletes and without the Rossbourg Club we 
still could have dances, but without the Y. M. C. A. the Christian 
standing of the School would drop 

In October, of the year igoo, during a period when the M. A. C. Christian 
was mocked and ridiculed, did Cadet Charles N. Bouic, through the criticism of 
the larger half of the School instil deep in the hearts of a few of his college mates 
the inspiration to do a little work for their Creator while here at College. This 
inspiration was embedded too deep to be lost, and from that date to this it has 
been mutiplied and handed down to those thirsting for it. In December of the 
same year, with the aid of our trusted helper, Mr. George F. Tibbitts, Interstate 
Secretary for Maryland, West Virginia, District of Columbia and Delaware, a 
constitution was framed and adopted, and the Maryland Agricultural College 
Young Men's Christian Association had its birth. 

From then until to-day it has steadily increased, and its membership of 
twenty-five in 1900 have grown to one hundred and fift\' in i()o6. 

In February, 1902, another great branch of Y. M. C. A. work was started — 
the Bible Class. This made slow progress, until in December of 1903, when 
through the earnest and energetic work of Cadet E. I. Oswald and Mr. Charles F. 
Gilkey, a general secretary of the student department, the class was reoganized, 
text-books were secured, and the work was given a firm basis. 

At the Interstate Bible Study Conference, held in Baltimore, January 13-15. 
1905, the Maryland Agricultural College was represented by five delegates, each 
bringing back valuable information to his fellow students. 

We are represented at all of the various State Conferences and Conventions, 
and since 1903 we have sent delegations to the Northfield Conferences, held 
annually at Northfield, Mass. This year at the Convention of the International 
Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions, held at Nashville, Tenn., 
February 28-March 4, our Y. M. C. A. sent two delegates. This convention is 
held every four years and is the largest student convention held in the world. 
The report of our delegates gave the substance of the addresses made by the 
world's most highly educated speakers. 

At the close of this scholastic year we again expect to send a delegation to 

Northfield, and feel confident that in the year i9o6-'o7 we shall start our Y. M. 

C. A. work by giving our usual reception to new students, and shall then continue 

in our work in the Sunday evening meetings with more earnestness and sincerity 

than ever before.

MDRRILL 



\'ER FORTY-FIVE years ago the first 
literary society of the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College was organized. Its 
founder was Dr. W. >d. Mercer, of 
Kew Orleans, whose name the society 
bore as the Mercer Literary Society until i88<), 
when it declined and finally met its untimely end. 
However, a new birth, a resurrection as it 
were, came about in i8<)2 through the efforts of 
members of the Classes of '93 and '94. The name 
of the New Mercer Literary Society was given 
to this rejuvenated organization, and this name 
it bears ti>-da\-. 

In i8(j4 the iMorrill Literary Society was 
organized through the efiforts of Professor R. \\. 
Alvev, who saw the great advantage of friendly 
competition, which would result to the literary 
work of the College through having another 
literar\' society. The society takes its name from 

" the great benefactor of agricultural colleges. 

Senator Morrill. 
The Morrill Literary Society has done fine wnrk since its organization, and 
has iiroved a worthy opponent in all contests with the older literary society of our 
College. This society has carried off man\- honors of late years. Last year from 
the Morrill Society was chosen the orator to represent our College against St. 
John's. Washington, and Western Maryland Colleges in the Seventh Annual 




— . t?'n 



vV,' 




81 



Contest of the Oratorical Association of Maryland Colleges. In the final debate, 
the debate for the Alumni Medal, our Society again carried off the honors, her 
representatives winning the decision of the judges, and one of her representatives 
winning the medal. 

The Societv has, since its very organization, shown itself ready to put forth 
the best it has in it in any contest and to support faithfully those who repre- 
sented it. 

This year it sent both of the debaters for the contest against the debaters of 
Delaware College. 

In a sketch of the literary societies of M. A. C, the names of Professors 
Richardson and Bombergcr must not be omitted, for it is to the ever-ready assist- 
ance and cooperation of these two zealous advocates of the best there is in oratory 
and literarv pursuits that the literary societies owe their flourishing condition. 

The President of the Morrill Literary Society notes with great gratification 
the interest and pleasure manifested by the members in the work this year. The 
meetings of the Societv have been both pleasurable and instructive. We sincerely 
hope that the enthusiasm which has been so ])ronounced this year will continue 
so long as the Morrill Literary Society shall e.xist, antl that this will be coincident 
with the College itself. 

Especial mention must be made of the good work and the attentive interest 
which the new members of the Morrill Society have shown. This has been an 
ins])iration to all the members to maintain the Society in the leadership in the 
literary matters of the College. 

May all of the members devote their untiring efforts to its advancement in 
the future and keep up the good record of the past.

As THE history of the organization of the Xew Mercer Litcrarv Society 
has been pubh'shed so often, it is needless to give a detailed accoimt 
from year to year. However, the original society was organized by 
Dr. W. M. Mercer, whose name the societv now bears. 

The literary work in this College is improving each year. Last year 
the two representatives of the New Mercer won the preliminary debate between 
the Morrill and the Xew Mercer. The representatives were Messrs. White and 
Bassett. ".\lthongh these yonni; men were not successful in the final debate 
between Delaware College and M. .\. C, they deserve a great deal of 
credit, for they put up strong arguments and were entirely familiar with the 
subject. In the preliminary debate this year the Xew Mercer representatives 



made a good sliowmg. 



84 



In the oratorical contest this year the speakers from both societies were 
full of animation and the delivery was hard to beat. Of these speakers the New 
Mercer furnished three, while there were three from the Morrill, thus making the 
contest more interesting than ever before in the history of the College. This 
shows that the students have taken more interest in the work than in former years, 
and at the same time have derived many benefits in literary work. 

The membershi]^ has increased very rapidly and a marked improvement has 
been seen in the way in wdiich the students handle the subjects assigned them. 
The members have taken more interest in the work than in preceding years and 
can get upon their feet and give rattling good speeches. Still, the efforts of those 
who are interested in the work have been greatly interrupted by lectures and 
entertainments, which were enjoyed by every member, but detracted from the 
regular line of work. A great deal of progress has been made and a very credit- 
able amount of work has been accomplished by this Society and its rival — The 
Morrill. 

Mav the work continue, and some day in the near future may the New Mercer 
Literary Society be one of the leading literary societies in the State. 

The benefits derived by an active member of a literary society should not be 
underestimated. A member soon acquires a graceful manner of delivery and 
becomes accustomed to speak in public. 

Literary societies develop the social side of a student's career and will not 
onlv help him in his public delivery, but will train him to think and act more 
quickly. 

Around the family firscsidc, in the banquet hall and in political life, the 
literary society man will be most prominent and will advance to the front. 

We all cannot become great orators, but let us get all the benefit from the 
work that we can, and then we will be able to do ourselves justice and become 
useful and respected citizens in our community.

CLU 



Ci)c i\os6bourg Club 



jB 



'The bright and youthful dancers meet. 
With laughing eyes and winged feet ; 
And golden locks come flashing by, 
Like sudden sunshine throug-h the sky." 

The Broken NECKr...\CE. 



WIIF.X IN 1891 a band of AI. A. C. boys, bowing their heads at the shrine 
of music and confessing themselves devotees of the gay muse Terpsi- 
chore, organized the Rossbourg Club, they did well. And let it be 
known that in this fair state of ours and in many other sister States 
they have a patronage ever ready to voice the praises of M. A. C. 
and to sing far and wide those of the Rossbourg Club. 

On the organization of the club many names were proposed, but all gave 
awa\- to the present, for what is now the Maryland Agricultural Experiment 
Station was once a famous hostelry, the Rossbourg Inn. 

( )ld inhabitants tell us that the old Rossbourg Inn. eight miles from Wash- 
ington and (lirccth- in front of the College, was in its day a famous breakfasting 
place ; that many gay stage parties from Baltimore or Washington would spend 
their evenings there, and, bringing forth "Uncle" Ned, the white-haired darkey, 
with his famous "dancin' fiddle," would bow and courtesy daintily to the low, 
sweet strains of a minuet or Sir Roger de Covery. So, very a]i]iropriately was 
the club named Rossbourg. 

The club, undeniably, owes it success to President Silvester. Always has 
he been ready with willing hands to offer his assistance. Never has he wearied 
of tendering aid (ir bestowing comforts upon its guests, and occasionally has he 
lifted it from tlio.se quagmires where the unwar\- are wont to fall, and planted it 
again upon solid ground. Thus it is that under his and the Falcut}'s ]jatronagc. 
the Rossbourg Club has pros])cred and reached the high state of social refinement 
and culture of which it now boasts. 

On the com])letion of our new administration building the club bade farewell 
to its old home. 



The lu-w ball-room is one of the finest in the State, having smooth floor, high 
ceihngs, spacions and airy windows. The dances during the past year were not 
increased in number, but man\' new ideas and specialties were introfluced. The 
decorations, under the management of First Lieutenant and Adjutant Caid, were 
especially effective and attractive, while the introduction of the Turkish Room, 
at the lower end of the hall, fitted out with subdued lights, soft divans and cozy 
corners, proved one of the most popular attractions oft"ered by the club in many 
years. 

The officers and members wish to express their sincerest thanks to Air. 
Greene for his kindness and troubles in serving refreshments for the past year, 
as well as to the authorities of the Experiment Station for the use of their horses 
and 'busses.

STUDENTS' QUARTERS 



College !ati)letie6 





inni 



A STRONG, clear, well-developed mind and a frail, weak, unsteady body 
are very antagonistic conditions. The individual who puts great stress 
upon the development and broadening of his mental abilities and, at 
the same time, utterly disregards his physical improvement, is placing 
himself at a serious disadvantage. His knowledge and high culture 
are of no real benefit to him if he is compelled, by his inexcusable negligence, to 
shuffle along in the world without vigor or activities. In order for his training 
to be useful to others, as well as to himself, it is necessary to have a body callable 
of moving from place to place with life and agility. 

It is college athletics which plays such an important part in bringing about 
this latter condition of afifairs ; and to it, we should be profoundly indebted. In 
the college life of to-day, athletics should be, and, in many cases are, a compul- 
sory part of the collegiate routine; placed upon an equal basis with the studies 
in whatever course pursued. At any institution where this is the case, the manly 
bearing and stalwart appearance of the student body is appreciated at once. 

The Marvland Agricultural College is surely a splendid example of such 
an institution. The athletics here are almost ideal, although there is some room 
for improvement. lUit we are by no means at a standstill. Not only are the 
teams Ijecoming formidable year by year, but the facilities for proper athletic 
work are lieing multiplied so that in a few years the Maryland Agricultural College 
will, without the slightest doubt, be represented by the most efficient teams and pos- 
sess the best equip]:ied athletic grounds in the State of Maryland. 

This lieing the case, if we did not live up to the highest sense of moral 
character and gentlemanly behavior while jiarticipating in game of contest, it 
were better that we had no athletics at all. Athletics of such a nature develop 
into the use of unfair means, into deception, into a dcliased spirit, tolerant of 
fraud and undue advantage. ( )n the other hand, if our young men. in their 
friendly ])astimes on the athletic field, can display an honorable, upright spirit. 
one of nnquestionnl pnrit\- and integritw then we have gained a high st;nidard 
of outdonr life, in wliicli every virtue nf iihysical development can be attained.

Anotlier pliase of debased athletics has, most laiiientabl\-, developed in recent 
years and shotUd be conscientiously discouraged. It is the employment of disin- 
terested athletes, popularly known as "ringers," to remain at college just for 
the season in which any one team is organized, allowing them to ]nirsue such 
studies as will honestly admit their being recognized as bona fide students, so 
that they may represent the college upon her "varsity team. We are proud to 
say that our College is free of this evilr-as students of Maryland .Agricuitunil 
College, as citizens of the State of Maryland, tolerate such baseness and decep- 
tion? No! .Most emphatically Xo ! Would our consciences not twinge; could 
we look a competing team squarely in the face and say, "C)ur team is comjiosed 
of regular students of the Maryland Agricultural College" if we were guilty of such 
underhand work? We, as true Maryland boys, would scorn such contemjitible 
practices. 

Let us, therefore, continue in the future to live up to the high standard of 
excellence in college athletics which we have maintained in the past, and, by 
prolonged perseverance, let us strive to i^revent any condition tending to mar 
the good name of our behjved College.

TT 



WHAT IS this game of football that all collcg'e men are so enthusiastic 
over' This is a question that we often hear asked, for it has only 
been of late years that football has reaehed the highest state of ]30pu- 
larity. However, the statement that football is a modern game would 
be incorrect; for we find, on investigation, that it is one of the oldest 
of our present-dav athletic s]5orts. The English played a game three hundred 
years ago, wliich has, in the natural development, become "American football." 
Meanwhile, strange to relate, these very Englishmen who invented or discovered 
the game have since given it up for what is known as "English football" or 
"socker." 

Football is essentially a college sport, and should never be played by any 
but pure amateurs ; for, the minute the ]irofessional enters upon the gridiron, 
we must look for those abuses to which the game is so liable, and from which 
it has sufifered so much during the past few years. Naturally the hired profes- 
sional has no compunctions about kicking a man in the ribs or hitting another in 
the face, provided this can be done in the general "mix-up" of a scrimmage and 
then without it being seen. Now, with the true college athlete, this should be, 
and usually is, altogether different. He enters the game, it is true, with every 
faculty bent on winning for the college which he holds so dear, Init this one thing 
is impressed upon him from the first day he dons a suit of moleskins — that to 
use any but fair means to win a victory, is to bring shame and disgrace manyfold 
worse than a defeat to the college for which he plays. And, just so long as the 
game is plaved bv men who use no unfair means and in turn e.xpect and demand 
as much from their opponents, there will be no grounds for tlie charges which 
here of late have been made against the game. 

And it was such a team as this that the Maryland Agricultural College put 
upon the field last Fall. /\ team which, to use the language of a famous coach, 
"Could plav until they were "all in,' and then go ahead and play some more." 
A team which shunned a mean actionaipon the football field more than it would 
have shunned the ])lague. A team that would have lost every game of the season 
ratlier than take an unfair advantage of an opponent. It was this same team, 

103 



with one of the finest coaches procurable, and with as enthusiastic a backing as 
any student bodv ever_v accorded any football team, that won so many victories 
for M. A. C. And so, with all this, is it hard to understand how our light team, 
composed almost as it was of men who had never before played the game, could 
]j!av and defeat teams many pounds heavier in weight, and that they should 
finally win tlie State championship? 

M. A. C. had every right to feel proud of her football team, and nobly did 
the student bodv and the friends of the College give every aid to that team which 
so gallantly carried the ( )range and Black across many an opponent's goal line. 

So that, when we look hack and take a review of the past season's work, we 
find little for which we need feel sorry, nothing for which we need feel ashamed ; 
but, on the other hand, much for which we can and do feel proud and happy. 

In looking into the future, we must hope for and expect an even greater 
success than we have had in the past. That these may be realized in their fullest 
extent is the sincere wish of all who are interested in football at M. A. C.

Dear Mothers of Maryland: 



IJi. 



hT^ 



E MANAGEMENT of the Football Department of M. A. C. Athletics 
feels that, in a certain sense, it owes you a statement of the advan- 
tages and disadvantages to be derived from your sons' entering into 
football work. We would like, however, to state that we do not wish 
to put ourselves in the place of advisors in this matter, but simjily to 
put you in possession of the facts from which you may reach definite conclusions. 

In the first place, we do not believe that any boy, who is not physically sound, 
should undertake football athletics. Your family physician can tell you just 
whether or not your boys are physically sound. 

Taking for granted that they are all right in this respect, I will endeavor to lay 
before you, first, the disadvantages, and then the advantages of the sport, so far 
as I have seen them here at the College. 

I'irst, as to the disadvantages : It is a recognized fact that the American 
youtli is inclined to excess in almost everything he undertakes. Your sons will 
probably be inclined to overdo their sport. This, however, may be overcome ; 
and, in fact, will be overcome by a competent coach and a competent captain of 
their team. The applicant will be allowed to take only such an amount of exercise 
and vigorous outdoor work as will be both necessary to his becoming a good foot- 
ball ])la)er, and will be most conducive to physical good health to himself. 

.\nd, again, there is a chance of physical injury, outside of the kind referred 
to above : and this is a disadvantage that cannot be so easily overcome by proper 
training and knowledge of the game. Xevertheless, it may be greatly lessened 
Ijy a proper government of the mode and style of playing. I mean by that state- 
ment, that football is recognized as a game in which a man may play the part 
of a brute, but in which he is not allowed to do so. Therefore, with gentlemanly 
opponents, and himself properly trained in the defense and attack, just as one 
is trained in fencing, the amount of risk of injury is not sO' great as, at first 
sight, it appears. Another fact in this same connection, which is of the greatest 
advantage to the player in football, is that the game has been reduced to a practi- 
cal working science, and is governed by certain tricks and sleights, a knowledge 
of which enables the player to look out for his own person and the defense of 
his team, as well as to break down the defense of his opponents. These things 

105 



not only result in tlic player's avoiding some danger to himself, but make of him 
a more aggressive, and, consequently, a more efficient football player. 

Another great argument that is brotight to bear against football, is that it 
takes too much of the valuable time of one engaged in it from the proper perform- 
ance of his scholastic duties ; thereby hurting his record in that for which he was 
sent to college. This we admit ; but with certain and most important limitations. 
In the first place, I may say that I believe this to be the case at large universities, 
where one, to be able to gain admittance to the team, must give almost his undi- 
vided attention to football work, and where he is required to spend at least a 
fifth part of his day on the gridiron or in the football lecture room. But at a 
college of the class of the Maryland Agricultural College ; or, I should say, at 
M. A. C, the aforesaid is not the case. The football player here is expected to 
give two, of his possible three, hours of recreation specially set apart for exercises 
and outdoor enjoyment to football. He is not expected to put more time than 
that upon this department of athletics, nor is he permitted to do so, even though he 
wishes it. I believe that I may safely say that so far from taking any time from his 
studies, the work which he does tipon the football field even aids him in mas- 
tering them. This will be clear when we consider the undisputed fact that the 
brain is quickened and made more vigorous by exercise and outdoor air, which 
purifies the blood and sends a stronger flow of this healthy fluid to the brain, 
without which that organ is sluggish and clouded, and. consequently, cannot 
properly perform its functions. 

It is likely, also, that such small one or two-day holidays as your sons may 
be able to secure will be given to their team, and you will, therefore, see less of 
them than vou would were they not athletes. When you do see them, dear 
mothers, I fear also that vou will find their interests so absorbed in football as to 
make you feel jealous of the attention they devote to it. This, I believe, com- 
pletes the list of disadvantages. 

As to the advantages : Their careers in the College will be far pleasanter 
for them if they should be successful in football ; their acquaintance with the 
fellows will be wider and more agreeable ; and, provided they come through without 
serious injury, thev will be the stronger and more robust jihysically on account of 
the development. 

You ma\- fairlv ask me for my reason for the last conclusion. Tn this con- 
nection let me sav that I am (|uite sure that nothing in the \va\- of set phxsical 
effort,, like pulling weights, walking, or anything of that kind, possesses enough 
interest (unless performed in connection with and for the ])urpose of accomplish- 
ing some other result ) to lead boys to take the amount of exercise necessary. 
The lunnan animal, in his necessity for bodily exercise as a condition of health, 
has not altered materially in the small period of time covered by what we call 

106 



civilization. The centuries of struggle to secure the means of existence, exposure 
to the elements, and the pressure of conditions for physical life and activity, have 
tended toward the preservation of health and the development of the race to its 
present condition. Physiologists will tell you that there has been no very essen- 
tial diange in the organism of man dtiring this period. Hence it is fair to say 
that there are certain definite requirements for a healthy life — namely, fresh air, 
sunlight, proper food, and bodily exercise. The necessity of this latter, towards 
replacing the old with the new in the animal economy, is of the greatest import- 
ance. And all these necessary conditions are provided by football. 

So much for the physical side of it. As to the mental and moral, I am frank 
to say — and in this the majority, I think, of those who have watched boys in their 
development are inclined to agree — there is no finer discipline at the college age 
than that of the football field. The character building there is certainly remark- 
able. The fact, I think, is generally admitted that many boys, who come to col- 
lege without the benefits of a large school, and perhaps too much jirotccted by 
the wealth or social position of their ]5arents from contact with things as they 
really are, might manage to get through college, if they kept out of football, 
without learning much almut democracy: but no one of them would miss it, if he 
were cast upon a football field. There strict obedience, respect, modesty, patience, 
and persistence is taught. IMany a man has worked there for two, or even three, 
years for the sake of securing the coveted place on a 'varsity team. And no matter 
how exaggerated one nia_\- consider the value these boys place upon that honor, 
the results are the same, and the work of the several years has been done, and the 
various points of discipline have been learned. During the time also that any boy 
is in training, he must and will curb his desires ; his living will be wholesome and 
cleanly ; the hours he keeps will be early and regular ; and, in fact, his life will 
be far more carefully ordered for him than would be possible either by you or by 
the Faculty. 

There is yet one more, and very ini])cirtant, consideration in the advantages 
to be derived from football. "\'our sons, dear mothers, will be hap])y in, and 
pleased with, their football work. They will enjoy every hour spent in practice 
and every second spent in contest. They will learn to love their tasks upon the 
gridiron, and they will take a deep and jiroper jiride in their own prowess and 
power. They will learn to place confidence in themselves and appreciate right- 
fully their own abilities. 

Such, dear mothers, are the advantages of football, as I have seen them here at 
the Maryland Agricultural College. I have endeavored, in this open letter, to 
put you in possession of the facts pro and con, and will leave you to draw your 
own conclusions. 

Yours, in the hope that your sons will be with us on the gridiron next season, 

C.\DKT L. Ferdinand Zerki?,l, 
/ Manager Football Team, '05.

To MAINTAIX the hit^h and worthy reputation which our teams have 
won in past years throu!:;h tlieir hard and earnest endeavors will be 
the aim of this year's team. The outlook for this year's team is very 
promising, although but four men from last year's team are back. 
Baseball has always undoubtedly been the great sport and the one in 
which old M. A. C. has gained more honors than in the other sports during her 
life. Everybody in College is highly enthusiastic over the game, and it is this 
enthusiasm that supports the teams in their dark hours. It is to be hoped that 
the intense and loyal college spirit wdiich is stored up in the breast of everv man 
of us will burst forth into one grand eternal flame that will warm the hearts of 
our teams and cast its reflected glow ujion the old College in a series of victories 
long to be remembered. The probable line-up of the team will be that of the 
game with Georgetown University :

I" X C(7)LLEGE life of to-day. college athletics have come to be a factor of 
\^ no inconsiderable importance. Among these is the track work, which is 

a very beneficial and interesting sport. 

Although the track work at j\l. .\- C. has been laboring under the 
greatest of disadvantages, yet there has been developed some excellent 
men, who have done good work for the College in some outside meets. 

Professor Richardson gives very valuable aid to the management of this 
department, and does all that is possible in the way of advice and in teaching the 
men a few points in sprinting and running. 

The most enjoyable feature of this work is shown on Field Day, when the 
best work of the runners of the School is put forth, giving us an example of what 
hard training and constant practice will do.

A FEW YEARS ago the College students organized a Minstrel Show, 
which marked the first real presentation of the Glee Club to public 
notice. This show was such a thoroughly enjoyable event that the 
idea still held life in the minds of those who had participated in it : 
consequently at the beginning of this scholastic year the idea burst 
forth again and another minstrel show was presented. 

Although the club was handicapped at the very beginning by the absence of 
several old men — Wentworth, Shaw and Cruickshank, and later by the illness of 
Dirickson and by Choate's leaving College — the remaining members started in 
with a will and the "Old M. A. C. spirit," and under the very capable and hearty 
instruction of Professor Bomberger, succeeded. I say "succeeded," because the 
unanimous sentiment of the audience was that it was clever, bright, witty and 
pleasing. It is to be regretted that the show was not presented again, because 
the enjoyment given to the audience, and especially to the fellow on the stage, 
comes very seldom in a college man's career. We hope sincerely that next year 
another will be given which will even excel this one. 

The work of INIr. Zerkel as interlocutor was very creditable indeed, as was 
also that of JNlr. Ridgway and Mr. Linnell, both new men on the ends. These 
three men carried ofif their work with no trace of nervousness, and, in fact, acted 
like regular professionals. The work of Messrs. Caul and Stoll, the two ends of 
the previous show, was especially gratifying and their parts were carried off in 
the same reliable, easy style as of old. The solos by Messrs. Fernandez and 
Dickey were ver)' pleasing. The former's voice was a distinct surprise, as it is 
away above the minstrel class. The circle, which was composed of very excellent 
\oices, supported the leaders verv creditably, .\ltogcther the members are to be 
congratulated heartily upon the pleasant and gratifying entertainment.

NE ( )I'' THE most complete as well as efficient departments of the Col- 
1 I lege is the Medical Department. Our new hospital, completed in 1902, 
is most thoroughly equipped and, in every way, serves the purpose 
for which it was erected. In it we have a sure isolation from all 
contagious diseases, and a pleasant and comfortable place of refuge 
when we are "under the weather." The College no longer has to close its doors 
for weeks or months at the outbreak of a case of dangerous, contagious illness. 
The hospital is even a greater safeguard against the spreading of any sickness 
than we could find by returning each to his own home, to say nothing of the 
disastrous results of time lost from our academic duties. The plan of this build- 
ing will show its efficiency better than words can describe it. 

( )ur experienced, competent and affable Doctor Eversfield, in bis regular daily 
visits, attends to our little aches and pains with a medical skill and a knowledge of 
human nature (so the "list-beaters" unwillingly testify) which can be secured in 
few places to a more pronounced degree. 

Our Matron, whose title, in its derivation from the Latin word mater, in- 
cluded and indicates her services to the boys ; not only nurses us with the most 
tender care when we are ill, but also looks out for our wants and our comfort 
when we are well. Mrs. Fitzhugh occupies a warm spot in the heart of every 
inmate of the College, and "Our College Mother" will ever be remembered with 
the same tenderness that has always been her return from the men who go out 
from the Maryland Agricultural College. What w^ould we do, when in the In- 
firmary, if the dear lady did not leave here cocoa where we could find it and 
make fudge from it? What would we do. when we get too strenuous and tear 
our clothes or break off the buttons, if we had not "Madam" to go to for help? 
What would we do without her caramels, to be had in a moment when we feel 
like eating a few "sweets?" Rut. more than all this, what \voul<l we do when we 
need the loving and tender care, which only woman can give, hail we not dear 
Mrs. Fitzhugh to cheer us and nurse us back to our normal health?

(But ^ont\)tx\\ jfootball Crip 



J /^ n ! the glories of foot-ball ! Some foolish persons ask — "Where do they 
V_>/ come in?" and "Of what do they consist?" Prithee, foolish ones, I 
fain would tell you of a few of the afore-nientioned glories which befell 
our team last November. 

Departing from our well-beloved College one memorable Friday 
afternoon, we took the trolley to Washington, there to embark on a palatial 
steamer named for that city, for a beautiful trip down the historic Potomac to 
Old Point Comfort. Nothing so remarkable in that, you say. But have patience, 
gentle ones, for more is yet to come. I^isten ! 

As we neared that embattled port we arose from our gently-rocking cradles 
of the night and went on deck. Never will many of the landsmen of the party 
forget the sight that met our eyes. A huge, red ]jlum ]uidding was just shaking 
the salty brine off its glowing edges far off on the eastern horizon. Larger and 
larger it grew ; brighter and brighter beamed the concealed light within, until 
finally Old Sol had risen again to cheer our hearts to anodier victory. Long and 
silently we gazed at gigantic Fortress Monroe, and then and there resolved to 
form that day a wall as strong and impenetrable as her own cemented parapets. 

Departing from our friend of tlie night, we traversed a few of the polished 
streets of i)U\ Point, arriving at the railway station. Our useful and business- 
like manager bade us remain there while he went in search of that invaluable aid 
to foot-ball — a substantial breakfast. After we had consumed this sumptuous 
X'irginia repast we returned to the station and took train for a delightful journey 
to Williamsburg. Arriving at that historic town we were met by the entire student 
body of William and Mary College. They escorted us to their beautiful compus 
and ensconced us in very comfortable quarters. 

As we had a little spare time before lunch our coach took us out from town 
about half a mile for a little light signal practice. We obtained the loan of a 
suitable field from some kind farmer and did some snappy work with the signals. 
After perhaps half an hour we returned to the college thoroughly invigorated and 
with excellent appetites. Ask the generous steward there what we did to his 
delicious luncheon. Suffice it to say that we ate all the vigilant coach and nian- 

121 



ager woulil allow us, and some, es])L'cially the q'uards, stole some dainty morsels 
behind the other fellows' backs. Nothing so inspiring in all this, but, bear with 
me, kind reader; the fruit has but begun to ripen. Yea, verily, I sav unto you, 
the concealed sweetness therein hath yet to reach that luscious state where it 
produceth a sense of joy unspeakable to the imbiber thereof. 

At last we sit, clothed for the contest, in our dressing-room. Who can de- 
scribe the eager and emotional feelings that stir our hearts? We are here to 
decide the point of supremacy between the sons of Maryland and Virginia in a 
scientific and technical game. We steal surreptitious glances at our heavy oppo- 
nents running through signal practice, and then every man decides to do or die. 

At last all is ready. A few encouraging words from our coach and we trot 
upon the battle-field. The goals are chosen, the linesmen are named and all is 
ready for the fray. The referee blows his whistle, Rufifner says farewell to his 
little Virginia maiden, and the teams line up. 

The whistle again, and lo! Bosley sends the pigskin hurling through the 
air far into our opponent's territory ; but in a short time it is Maryland's ball 
again. A few beautiful runs by Gait and we near the goal, when that mass of 
brawn and muscle, called by some "IJrawn," but in the line-up Cooper, hurls him- 
self through that wall of powerful men for Maryland's first touch-down. The 
teams tug on. wdth first one side gaining ground only to be thrown back by the 
other, and I'icc z'crsa, but at no time was Virginia near Maryland's finely guarded 
goal. 

At last the game ends, and Virginia is forced to acknowledge her inferiority 
to the Maryland boys' skill. Long are the shouts when our tired but valiant 
heroes awaken to the fact that they have beaten their opponents to the tune of 
seventeen to nothing. 

Oh, kind reader, would that you had seen that game ; the skill and science 
with which we ran through our plays and the valiant manner in which w'e were 
met. How can you ask what are the joys and glories of foot-ball when you look 
at a sight which at times holds _you breathless with suppressed excitement, and 
at others you shout yourself hoarse when some magnificent play has been executed. 
Away with such notions. It is nonsense even to think of condemning such a sjiort. 

After fi.xing up the very few bruises incident to the game, we went again to 
murder the good Virginia food. This time we were even allowed to drink cofife. 
Then we went forth into the historic old town in search of amusement. Those of 
us who had friends among the students prevailed on them to take us out and show 
us examples of those rare Southern beauties who inhabit that place. This they did 
most readily, and many are the jileasant memories of the Virginia ladies. Both 
of our tackles eagerly await the coming of next season when they shall again have 
the opportunity of seeing certain fair ones there. 

122 



Early next morning we bade farewell to the hospitable students and went to 
Newport News. We went through the naval yards at that place and had an oppor- 
tunity to see the gigantic battleship Virginia in drydock. Then taking ferry across 
the Roads to Pine Beach we took trolley to Norfolk. Many pleasant incidents 
are told about the strolls we took about that ancient city. Ask the manager! 
There it was that the "little fat guy" got his big glass of milk. At last it was 
time to take the boat for our homeward trip. Loud were the cheers that we gave 
for Virginia as we raised anchor and moved out of the harbor, and many were 
the farewell looks we gave that spot that marked the end of our most pleasant 
trip of the season. 

Nothing worthy of note occurred on our return trip, but our coach thought 
we needed some signal practice. Accordingly he begged some beans of the cook, 
and with each player at his position on this imaginary eleven, Gait ran through 
the entire set of signals. 

Early next morning we reached Washington and took trolley back to our 
cheering college. Never were shouts so loud nor so numerous as those that all 
the assembled classes gave us as we alighted from our "bus" and walked up to the 
building. It made one feel happy, I tell you, to be in such a band of men, heroes, 
every one of them. And then you ask what glory is in foot-ball. Oh ! ye of little 
faith, go you with us next vear and see It for yourselves.

Sec coming across the waves a-dashing, 

Across the great Atlantic's path, 
A ship with all her deck lights flashing, 

Which has escaped old Neptnne's wrath. 
Slowly, as if in pain, 
She leaves the great Atlantic's main 
To seek repose, and not in vain. 

These were the first Marylanders. 

A triumphal cry breaks on the air, 

As clear as the trumpet's blast : 
"Thank God! Thank God! for winds .so fair 

And freedorn's shore at last." 
Was it through fear of war 
That they left their home and shore 
Witli a cry of liberty evermore? 

No ! These were Marylanders. 

Who was the man that led them on. 

Led them to this far away shore? 
His name passes from father to son, 

Cecil — the brave Lord Baltimore. 
And his spirit as shown before, 
Made to flow the patriotic gore 
That filled the streets of Baltimore 

From the breasts of the Marylanders. 

And over Lord Baltimore's grave 

(Since his great life's work is done) 
Long may the "Star Spangled Banner" wave 

For the glorious victories he has won. 
And all of dear old Maryland's part 
In aiding the nation to get its start, 
Is told in this story, which thrills each heart: 
"Maryland, My Maryland."

College Spirit 



ONE ( 'F THE distinctive characteristics of American colle_i;es and schools 
is the sentiment which pervades the student body, and which we call 
"College Spirit." 

The American college student, although very little given to any 

such thing as sentiment, and viewing with detestation the idea of what 

is called in college parlance, "slopping over," in affairs in general is, nevertheless, 

imbued with a spirit of intense loyalty and devotion to his Alma Mater, which in 

some cases almost borders on fanacticism. 

"College spirtit" is manifested in many different ways, but its most popular 
form of manifestation is shown on the athletic field. There, in support of his 
"team," the student forgets all else, and "yells" and applauds as if the fate of the 
world hung on the issue of the game. And indeed it is an inspiring sight, which 
seldom fails to rouse even the most sluggish soul, to witness the demonstrations 
of loyalty, which may be found at any American college football or baseball game. 

In our own College, while in the main our teams have been well supported 
by the students, still I think we could make marked improvement in this respect. 
We should not allow ourselves to be surpassed in "College spirit" by any college 
in Maryland. Our College is the best in the State, our teams are the best in the 
State, and our College spirit should be equalled by no other in the State. 

I am glad to see a marked improvement in this respect during the last year, 
and will note, as an instance, the demonstrations of loyalty and tlie splendid 
reception accorded the baseball team, on its return from Annapolis, after winning 
the St. John's game. Every fellow was on the "(7/// vk'^y and the result was the 
greatest display of college spirit I have ever seen here. 

Now there is no reason why this should not alw,-iys be. When our teams 
go away and win thev should be supported. When they go away and lose they 
should be duubh- supported. f<ir then, if ever, a team needs the support of the 
student body. It makes them feel that their efforts are a])])reciated and nerves 
them to fight all the harder in tlie future. 

Then let us "get together." Let every man use his lungs in su])i)ort of his 
College. Don't let it be said that the students of the Maryland iAgricultural Col- 
lege are behind in anything. Let us be first in the class-room ; first in athletics, 
and fir.st in "College spirit." W. T. M., '07.

Cf)e Calc of (iDdjima 



HERE WAS mourning- in the house of ( )sliima. A dark cloud had 

I arisen in tlie west and settled over the fair face of Nippon. It had 

come laden with a deadly plague, sparing neither man nor beast. Strange 

I I creatures, that rode swiftly as with the fear of death upon them, 

infested the land. They devoured the harvests, they seized the horses, 
they spared neither young nor old. Samurai nor peasant. In the Mikado's name 
they laid waste the fields from Yedo to the Inland Sea. 

Beyond Hokaido, far up the Toyhiera, flowing swiftly to the sea, lay Maruy- 
ama, the mighty mountain of the North, with the village of Momura nestling 
at its foot. Here far from the wonderful city of Tokio, far from that cloud that 
rested over Nippon, dwelt the good people of Momura. Here they had lived for 
centuries in the brown thatched-roof houses, here they had toiled, here they had 
worshipped, unknown to the Emperor, forgotten bv the rulers. 

/Kmong them was the boast of the village, Kintaro Oshima, the strongest of 
their young men, their most faithful tiller of the soil, the swiftest of their hunters 
of the bear over the trackless snows of Winter. Under the ancient pines of 
Maruyama he built his humble cottage. In the rice fields of the Toyhiera he 
toiled day after day. From the distant hamlet of Nosaki he brought to his home 
a fair maiden, Kiku Inazo 1)\- name, and here the^' worked together in peace and 
happiness. 

Hut now the cloud was spreading until it hovered over the Tovhicra, now 
driven madly southward by the winds of Autumn. Still closer spread the plague, 
and over the long, white liridge that lies across the river, the couriers of the 
Empire came. From afar Kiku saw them. She imjilorcd her husband to flee. 
But he was blind to her tears, and he roughly commanded her to be silent. 
Patient and submissive, she held her peace. A strange jov overcame Oshima. 
They were coming for him, these men. The Mikado, too, had heard of him. 
Yes, they had come for him. In the name of the Child of the Sun, thev bade him 
mount and depart. 

The village gazed in wonder, but Kiku knew full well what this parting- 
meant. 1 le was gone pcrliai:)s forever. He rode from the staring crowd. 
"Syonara, O Oshima. Bring us great glory and honor. S\onara." they cried. 
Across the roaring Toyhiera they galloped, while behind them the old pines of 
Maruyan-ia faded away. On, on they rode, until at last the\- can-ie to Hokaido, 

T33 



to a citv greater tlian Hokaido, a city of tents, to a life of stern commands, of 
wearisome idleness, of endless drill, drill, drill. 

One, two, three months passed awa_\'. And at last amidst the cheers of a 
shouting populace, the northern regiment marched out from the great white camp. 
Company after company swung ]3ast at a trot. They looked but the mimicry of 
war. these little brown-skinned, brown-uniformed men, these pigmies of the East. 
They seemed but toy soldiers in their bright uniforms, their plump, good-natured 
faces radiant with exultation. "Too, too, too, ta too," sounded the queer little 
bugles. "Pat, pat, pat" sounded their sandaled feet as the proud sergeants 
counted "one, two, three, fotu'." Whither they were going, they knew not. "For 
the Mikado" they were called — that was enough. Little they cared that wintry 
morning with the moon sun blazing upon them. War, bloody war, seemed far 
from those spotless uniforms, those gleaming rifles, those beardless, child-like 
faces. But war was before them, the glory and pomp were passing away. 

Squad by squad they filed aboard the huge transport. Four by four, they 
disappeared below the decks. A thousand strong they were, leaving their home- 
land for the first time, each moved liy the same passions, the same patience, the 
same fateful courage that belied their childish forms and actions. 

Slowlv the anchor was weighed and the trans]5ort ])ushed away from the 
crowded wharf. Everyone was crying. "Syonara! Syonara ! Farewell I Fare- 
well !" Everyone was giving last messages to their beloved ; everyone was strain- 
ing for a last glance of some dear one. With their escort, a huge black battleship, 
the gloomy incarnation of the sjjirit of war, far in the front, they followed over 
the stormy water of the Northern Sea. 

On the next day, the fog around them rolled away and swiftl}-, more swiftl)', 
thev pressed on their journey. Now, Oshima beheld the promised land. With 
wondering eyes he gazed at the barren coast before him. So this was the land in 
which he would find men to kill, where he would obtain honor and glory for taking 
the foreigner's life. At early dawn they cast anchor in an open bay. Platoon after 
platoon landed and drew u]X)n the deserted shore. Load after load of equipment 
landed, and then, as the last battalion disembarked, the regiment took up its line of 
march. 

With their onward progress, they heard the distant thunder of the bombard- 
ment. The sound grew more deafening ; they saw the great encampment sjtread 
about the doomed city. For tlie first time they heard the shrieking shra])nels. 
the bursting shells, the rattle of firearms. For the first time thev saw the dead 
and wounded, saw them tenderly borne to the forever smoking funeral ]iyres cm' 
ti> Ihe sick wai^ls that have hel])ed so much to make the armies of Japan the 
wonder of the world. They beheld death in its most fearful forms. They under- 
stood at last the true meaning of war ! 

134 



The Northern Regiment quickly won a name for courage and coohiess in the 
bloody charge of the heights of Port /Vrthur, and Oshima's company was the pick 
of the volunteers. Even he, the poor peasant of Momura, was recommended 
for honorable promotion. And now the great general and his council of war 
determined on a midnight sortie. They did not call for volunteers — they were 
not Americans. But they knew their men and their trust was never misplaced. 
Thev chose six veteran companies and as a seventh the champions of the Northern 
Regiment. On a night of perfect darkness, relieved only by the piercing flash- 
lights and the flare of belching guns, the brave array, the flower of Nogi's army, 
left the sleeping camp. With steady tread and in absolute silence, they marched 
toward the western battlement. Not a sound, not a sign betrayed their presence to 
the enemy. Oshima was in the van, alert and observant. Nearer and nearer 
they came. There was not a movement, not a sign of defense. 

But look ! A searchlight suddenly flashes full upon them. They are blinded ; 
they waver, then with a wild yell, they charge onward six hundred strong. "( )n- 
ward !" cry their leaders. The glaring light enrages and maddens them. "The 
Mikado! The Mikado!" they shout twice and dash forward in grim silence. 

Suddenly a deep rumbling shakes the ground, the earth yawns, a terrible 
flash of fire belches forth and lightens up the waiting city and the great camp 
spread about it. A deafening roar, as if a creature in rage awakes even those 
inured to the continual cannonade. Dust, rocks, battered steel, splintered wood, 
fragments of cloth and mangled limbs rise a hundred feet in air. Shrieks and 
cries, as of tortured spirits, rise over the fateful spot. Horror-stricken, the 
besieged and besiegers listen and gaze fearfully into the darkness. Five hundred 
souls have gone to their account and all is over. 

But where is Oshima. He lies cruelly wounded and maimed on the very 
edge of the circle of death. In mortal agony, he murmurs a fervent prayer to 
Buddha for his wife and child and consigns his soul to the future. One last 
glance at the rising sun, one last thought of Nippon and the humble cottage under 
the pine trees of Maruyama ; one Ijold cut ; one convulsive tremor, and the tortured 
body is at rest. A smile of perfect peace comes over the dead face, the peace 
which only Buddha can give, and Kintaro Oshima sleeps with his fathers. 

There is mourning in the house of Oshima. The winds of Winter no longer 
bends the pines of Maruyama in their fury. The Toyhiera flows calmly to the 
sea. The shuttle and loom are silent, while women till the fields of Oshima. Old 
men toil by the river and youths guide the rude plow in the furrow. Joy has 
departed from Monmura. Her young men are dead, her maidens are widows, her 
children are fatherless. But the cloud is lifted from the fair face of Nippon, the 
plague has departed forever. R. Brigham, 'o8.

As one who cons at evening o'er his lessons all alone. 
And muses on the faces of the text-hooks he has known ; 
So I turn the leaves of Fancy, till in shadowy design, 
I meet the smiling features of an old sweetheart of mine. 

'Tis a frangrant retrospection, and it makes my senses swim. 
Just to look upon her features, just to watch her iigure trim ; 
And you'll think I'm sentimental, till you know the joy divine, 
To sit and dream about her, an old sweetheart of mine. 

She's a dainty little creature, with her lines of classic grace, 
And a sort of airy fragrance seems to hover 'round her face ; 
.^n aureole of beauty, that lends its mellow haze. 
To soften all the picture, as I sit, and doze and gaze. 

And with tender recollections, I recall with thrills of joy 
The time when 1 first met her, when I was but a boy ; 
How with pleasure I grew dizzy, as with light and timid sips, 
I drew the golden nectar from the amber of her lips. 

And this very night I'm tliinking what a dull world this would be 
Had I not this little creature just to soothe and comfort me; 
So it is with eager rapture, so it is with bliss divine, 
I take my briar pipe and light it, that old sweetheart of mine. 

W. T. M., '07.

Now, breddrcn an' sistrcn, I's a gwine to preach to-day 

From a tex' dat am familiar to you all, 
An' I want yer all to listen to what I's a gwinc ter say, 

About ole fodder Adam an' de fall. 

Now dc Lord he made de earth, an' he seen dat it was good. 

An' he tuk a leetle dirt up in his han,' 
An' he blowed his bref upon it, an' he shaped it up a bit. 

An' it turned into a livin' breavin' man. 

But de man was sort a lonely-like a livin' by hisself, 

An' it 'pears to me he didn't 'joy his life, — 
So de Lord he tuk a spare-rib bone frum outen Adam's side 

An' made him up a 'panion an' a wife. 

An' dey live along togedder, a-doin' purty well. 

An' it seems to me dat Adam had a snap. 
For he had no clothes to buy, an' he had no work to do. 

For de Lord hisself attended to de crap. 

De Lord he said to Adam, "You can eat jes' what you please, 

Asepsin' of a certain apple tree. 
An' if you tetch dat apple," a-pinting to de one, 

"I'll be 'round 'bout here an' can see." 

An' de devil cum a-smilin', an' he said to mudder Eve, 

"Dat's de very nices' apple on de place : 
Jes' take a bite an' try it — don't be so awful skeered, 

Fur cowardis am a weakness an' disgrace." 

An' Eve she et de apple, and Adam et de core ; 

But dey couldn't fool de Lord wid any trick; 
So he sent a mighty angel wid a flamin' sword of fire. 

An" druv 'em out of Eden mighty quick. 

An' now, beloved breddren, I guess you see de pint, 
An' how you mus' obey de Lord's comman's, 

An' quit yer onery doin's, an' better up a bit, 
An' give up sum de meanness you has planned. 

Now, here is Brudder Johnsing, a-settin' in de pu', 

As meek as any angel from de skies ; 
De good Book say to tell dc truth — Init everybody know 

Dat Brudder Johnsing tells a pack ob lies. 



137 



An' den de Bible say agin dat all miis' live in peace ; 

But as I went ter home de udder nite, 
I notice Brudder Harmon, dare, 'long wid Mr. Jones, 

Ingagin' in a mos' disgraceful fite. 

An' chicken's migthy high jes' now, an' everlastin' skace, 

But seem dat Brudder Smith am alius able. 
To have a pair ob pullets or a turkey or a goose 

A-stemin' and a-smokin' on de table. 

Las' Sunday nite, jes' after church, I seen yer, Brudder Smith, 
An' knowed right well de meanness you was at ; 

You didn't know I see'd it when ye passed me on de street, 
A chicken foot a-stickin' out yer hat. 

But, breddren, if ye don't take keer, de dcvil'll git yer sure, 

He's a-spyin' an' a-skirmishing aroun' ; 
He'll grab ye fur a rassel — an' den ye better min', 

De devil kin alius trow a nigger down. 

De Lord's a-lookin' at ye, a-settin' 'hind de clouds. 
An' he know de dirty tricks you niggers do ; 

He kin see ye in a hen-house, or in a 'tater patch 
As well as when yer settin' in a pu'. 

An' it ort to be a warnin', de lesson of de tex' ; 

An' I hope dat every brudder now will try 
To'git a little more religion, an' lead a hones' life, 

An' 'pare to git to heaven when he die.

Cije Wallep of ^ijatjotus 



Far down in the Valley of Shadows, 
In the dim, distant Valley of Fears, 

Where the hirds never sing hut in requiem. 
And the flowers are watered with tears — 

Far down in the depth of this valley. 

With thoughts that the world cannot know. 

In the midst of the clouds and the shadows. 
Passed my soul with its hurden of woe. 

And sick was my soul with its longing. 
And faint was my soul with its fear, 

As it passed down the Valley of Shadows, 
Down the dim, distant Valley of Tears. 

But, lo ! a sweet voice from the shadows : 
"Oh, faltering soul, banish thy fear ; 

For this is the Valley of Trial. 

And God and His angels are here." 



And the birds changed their songs to Te Deunis, 
And my soul from its woes found release — 

The dim, distant Valley of Shadows 
Was now the sweet I 'alley of Peace. 

C. S. RlCH.\RDSON.

Cj)e ilost ilotje 



Wc were lovers, fond and true, 
She was all the world to me ; 

We loved on as children do, 
Thoughtless of our destin}'. 

Ah ! I know she loved me then : 
Sweet the love light in her eyes, 

As she turned from other men. 
Feeling not the sacrifice. 

Yes, we loved as children do — 
Roamed together, hand in hand. 

Plucking flowers sweet with dew. 
In a lovers' fairy-land. 

And our lovers' vows were given 
To be faithful through the years; 

And onr vows were heard in heaven. 
And were sealed with lovers' tears. 



Years have passed : a strange transition 
Marks my path where'er I go ; 

In the fields of Love's Elysium 
I am wandering to aiid fro. 

But my feet are torn and bleeding, 
All the flowers are dead and gone : 

Now no lover's hand is leading, 
I am walking all alone. 



Lo ! a vision ! see the bowers 
Of the dear old fairy-land, 

And my love among the flower.s- 
But anotlicr holds licr hand.

iicclamation Contest 





Ui 



IE 



TlIE FIRST of a series of declamation contests of the Sophomore Class 
- was held in the College auditorium on the evening of May, the fourtli. 
This is a new institution which has been introduced into the Col- 
lege and it proved a marked success. From the enthusiasm shown at this 
contest it is evident that in the future it will be one of the most useful 
branches of the College work. 

There were eight speakers in the contest and the work of each was highly 
creditable. 

The medal was awarded to H. W. Lippincott, who delivered the oration 
entitled, "Catiline's Defiance Before the Roman Senate." II. W. Stinson and 
J. W. Firor were chosen second and third, respectively, and their work was of 
unusual merit. 

The speakers and their declamations were as follows: 

J. P. Shamberger, "Horatiiis at the Bridi^c," by Lord Macaulay. 

R. H. Ruffner, "Anx Ifalii'iis." by <^)wen Meredith. 

N. L. Warren, "/;. Pltinhiis Umtmr by C. F. Smith.

(Tune — /" ihc Gond Old Suiinncr Time.) 
On this good old Saturdny, 
This good old Saturday. 
( ) 

Will be our easy prey; 

We'll break their plays and smash their lines, 

And that's a very good sign, 
That we will win the game in the 

"Good Old Autumn Time." 

(Under the Bamboo Tree.) 
We'll win the game and make them all lame, 

And show them how to play foot-ball ; 
Smash up their line; go thro' every time; 

Make them all feel so small ; 
Go 'round their ends, then our half-back we'll send 

To their goal in a red-hot play. 
Won't they feel sore, at this big score. 

On this old Saturday. 

RAMBLED. 
(.-l/tologies to Primrose and Doclcstader.) 
Their half-back rambled "round our end, 

On a very slow run ; 
Our men tackled them so hard. 

They put thcni on the "bum." 

Chorus. 
Oh, <lidn't they raniljle. 

They rambled. 
They rambled to M. A. C, 
As fearless as could be ; 
Oh, didn't they ramble, 

They rambled, 
They rambled till the "Farmers" cut them down. 

Then they tried to kick the ball, 

And fumbled every time ; 
They are the easiest things 

That ever came down the line. — Chorus.

We beg to say, dear reader, that fewer liberties have been taken with the 
words of the authors than with the good names of those to whom these words 
have been applied. However, we are sure that those directly interested will be 
considerate enough to take no offense at anything said herein. They will recog- 
nize the task that this conijiilatinn has been and appreciate the fact that to please 
everyone would be an impossii)ility. L. F. Z.. '06.

91 Critjutc to tlje Co\u 

Some may speak with words of eloquence, 

Of the deeds forgotten now ; 
But the subject of my verses 

Is a tribute to the cow. 

She may look homely in the city, 

Where her style is little known; 
But the man with riper judgment, 

Beauty sees in every bone. 

She may be spotted, black or brindle, 

Fawn or yellow, white or gray ; 
But her color little matters 

If her master she'll repay. 

Can you find a brighter picture, 
One more peaceful, one more free ; 

Than a herd of browsing cattle 
In the meadow under a tree? 

Not alone for one brief fortnight 

Could the people of our land 
Keep away the pangs of hunger 

Without milk to help them stand. 

So you see how blank a country 

This would be without the aid, 
Of the cow to help make better 

This old world in sun and shade. 

W. C. R., 08.

(Scene — Tcstiiii^ Bureau of JJ'ar Dcf^artiin-iit.) 
(Time— 1903.) 

{Enter Mcch. Students of igo6 of the M. A. C.) 

Chief Spieler — ''Gentlemen, you see before you an absolutely bullet-proof armor 
for war vessels, tested and found invulnerable to all missiles ; tlie product 
of six years' work, and of the mighty brains here represented." 

Tester of Armor Plate — "You say you have subjected this to every possible 
test?" 

C. S.' — "Oh, sir, it will withstand any destructive power on earth." 

T. A. P. — "Will it withstand rifle and cannon fire?" 

C. S.— "It will." 

T. A. P.— "Will it stand heat?" 

C. S. — "'Will it stand heat?' Well, I should smile several times. I hate to talk 
about my father — but he has phoned back to say that he has tested it 
thoroughly down there ((pointing) and its the candy kid." 

T. A. P. — "Will this armor plate withstand chemical action ; especially action of 
the Graham Destructive Fluid?" 

C. S. — "Yes, sir, even that." 

T. A. P. — "Will it withstand a bombardment of college biscuits thrown b\- M. A. C. 

boys?" 
C. S. — "Vamoose! We lose! T hate to talk about my father, but he says the 

devil himself is vulnerable to those biscuits." 

{E.vit in haste.)

%\)t Classes 

S stands for Senior, 

Ever noble and great ; 

Noted for knowledge — 

In most ways sedate. 

On the threshold of life now do they stand, 

Rcaih' and eager for the eall of the land. 

J stands for Junior — 

Up high in the School, 

Noted for s])orting ; 

In every way cool. 

Ordering the Sophs., at this they are fine 

Receptions and dances they think are divine. 

S stands for the Sophs., 

OI such a "Frat." 

Placing the paddle, 

H ow perfect at that ! 

On all days quiet ( ?) 

Most gentle and still ; 

Orderly at mess, in barracks and drill. 

Really, its thought by most of the Profs., 

Excellent bmich ; these worthy Sophs. 

F stands for Freshman — 
"Rat" is his bait; 
Ever eager ( ?) and an.xious (?) on 
Some "old boy" to wait. 
Honiesickness is to them unknown ( ?), but 
Many's the time they've wished for home. 
At many things useful — taking great risk ; 
Naught is a school without "Rats" on its list.

BuKivAU OF Information. 

NoTK. — Some misguided persons, under the impression, evidently, that the 
Editor is a miniature bureau of information and a walking dictionary and 
enc_\clop?edia combined, have besieged him with numerous questions regarding 
college subjects ; which, since the supply of stamps and time was small, and the 
number of vacant pages large, he has decided to answer in the "RevUili.e" : 

"The Annapolis Gazette" ( ?). No — we did not order five hundred copies 
of your October 26th issue ! 

"Wash. Zoological Park." Yes, we have two birds here — a Martin and 
a r.ryd unclassified. However, I fear they cannot be confined in a smaller 
inclosure than the College Grove. 

"Mr. Plovvsii.vre." Many thanks for your valuable suggestions. We will 
use our influence to get the College curriculum to include plowing, digging post 
holes, hoeing, and horseshoeing as practical work for all students. 

"Americ.xn Tobacco Co." No, gentlemen, you are incorrect. Our Mr. 
Bassett never could have given that letter of recommendation, for, we are sure, 
he never bought a package of your tobacco in his life. 

"P. ( ). DepT." By putting a detective on his trail we would suggest that 
those lost stamps can be found on Mr. Williams. 

"Flags." Yes, there is a fortune in the flag business here, but it is con- 
trolled by a trust. 

"Bell's Photographic Ch." We heartily sym]3athize with you in the loss 
of so valuable a camera, and are ashamed that our Sojih. Class should have done 
this destruction. 

"Numerous Inquiries." 1997^% of the students take the .\gricultural 
Course. 

"Smith .nnd Wesson." Mr. Thomas, our watchman, has gotten possession 
of one of }our revolvers. We would suggest not selling them to minors and 
lunatics. 

"War Dept." Artiller\' drill occurs only at night, and then only in extended 
disorder. Cavalry drill is limited to the classical students only, but they have 
good i)onies and know how in ride them successfully. 

162 



"Ordnance." Not hv a long shot! The biscuits are needed in baseball prac- 
tice. 

"Jones' Kunnici.s." No! there are no dogs around the premises. The loca- 
tion is unhealthy, tin cans too numerous, and sausage too frequent a number on 
the bill of fare. 

"Inventor." Yes! We have a class yell that sounds like a buzz saw striking 
a nail in a pine knot. Will sell cheap. Come early and avoid the rush, but don't 
let '07 see you first. 

" Junior Cl.vss." Yes, the Seniors will sell their responsibilities at a dis- 
count. We regret to say that the Senior privileges have been assumed or given to 
the other classes also, so those are not worth selling. 

"Junk Man." Come at once! The Buzzards' Roost Social Club and the 
Alley's Brickbat Gang will sell for a song — 76 pie plates (unwashed), zy cork 
screws (unused), 2 can openers, 13 glasses (also unused), one egg beater, "sil- 
verware," too numerous to mention, i set burglar's tools, 843 poker chips, 8 decks 
of cards (from 17 to 61 in each deck), 31 rat traps, i shin guard (useful for fire- 
escape work, such as raising strawberries), 1,023 1°'^^ letters, 3 bu.shels of chicken 
bones, 2^ cushioned and pneumatic-tire, 1 "persuaders." Come, Mr. Junk Man, at 
once, as the club is in debt and wishes to get out. By the way, I failed to mention 
that the above list does not include a great conglomeration of articles which 
can't be enumerated — also possessed by the clubs.

%\}t 9llle|)'£i Call 



(This is some real poetry. — Eu. ) 

When every one has gone to rest. 

When the lights have lost their dimmest glow ; 
They have studied hard and done their hest, 

Ferdy hears the Alley's wliistle blow. 

Springing from his bed and running down the hall, 
While around his body is wrapped his gown; 

He hears the old cock crow his morning call 
x\s if it behind him had flown. 

Last year the boys would have their fun 

While "Wiggle" was at their head ; 
Now they took to shooting of the gun 

Before many fire drills they had, 'tis said. 

But now they have found a leader gay, 

Who leads them off each night ; 
He plans each day some scheme to lay 

To give his nibs a little fright. 

But for this they well did pay, 

For it was in a stubborn plight 
Which gave them sleepy eyes each day. 

The Alley walked guard at night. 

Because of this they loud did cry. 

And they learned a lesson hard; 
For Commy said for discipline we must try, 

So they had quietly to walk their guard. 

Bombs flew through the air at a rapid pace, 

While Commy swore loud and long; 
.And when one nearly hit him in the face 

Tlie Alley sang the same old song; 

"All we ask is to treat us right, 

And we will do our best 
To keep the Alley still at night. 

So you may have some rest." 

Then old '06 to the rescue came. 

The Alley to pieces quickly flew ; 
The conduct was not only good in name, 

But everything to good order grew. 

No more shall the Alley's whistle blow. 

Nor their behavior be called bad ; 
For everything down there is so slow 

That studying has become a fad. A. M. M.

from broken china to brokci] hearts. Say, bo}s, I want a dozen bottles of that! 

Cadet — "Say, Mr. Green, can you get me an extra flannel cak-c this nmrning. 
like the one you gave me last week?" 
Mr. Gy — "Certainly. Did you like that one?" 

Cadet — "Yes'r; it made a fine half-sole for one shoe, and now I want to fix

Junior Ci..\ss — "Our Class President said it was."

upon graduation?"

Tomorrow is my girl's birthday, and I am worrying about the present." 

Cadet — "Is Williar singing 'Dear ( )1(1 <.drl?'" 
Cadet — "No! He onl_\- thinks he is." 

Prof. — "Why did your father send )'ou to an agricultural college?" 
Rat — "r)ecause he thought it was a good place to sow wild oats." 

Al.MiONEV {aft'r 'fiiistcc dinner) — "Why is this empty champagne Ijottle 
like an orphan?" 

Canby, — "Take it away, Pat, I don't like to look at those things — empty. 
lUu why is it like an orphan?" 

P.\T — "Because the\ liave both lost their i>op." 

i68 



Prof. No. i— "This Agricultural rnoui with its dried grasses and crops, should 
1)c a fine place for a donkey to get into." 

Prof. No. 2 — "Make yourself at home." 

FifRDii. "If you try to pull my, ears, you will have your hands full." 

The bunch looked at these boat-sails and agreed. 

BosLFv (after iisiiit:: his pass-key to i^ct into the room after his rooiiiiiiate. 
Diekev. had i;oue away for several days (?) tiuds the folloiving note on the 
table): "The key is on the transom-sill above the door. Be a good boy and .«tudy 
hard. — 'Phil.' " 

"Full many a rose is born to bUi.sli unseen. 
And waste its fragrance on the desert air ;" 
Full many a nip is taken behind the screen, 
And cloves and coffee, too, are eaten there.

Fef<die — Not enough \"s and X"s. and too many I. O. U's." 

Private — "Nobody ought to object to being called down." 
1ST SgT. — "Why not?" 

Private — "Because he must stand higher than the man that does the calling 
down." 

HINTS FOR EASTER. 

The favorite decoration for men's vests on Easter (although not sanctioned 
bv Wash, tailors) will be soft-boiled eggs, dropixxl in a careless, but none the less 
effective manner from the egg-spoon, as that vehicle is in transit from the egg- 
cup to the exterior opening leading to the interior department. Married people 
should not, while eating eggs, discard the yolk, and colored persons should display 
no race prejudices by refusing to eat the whites. 

One of our "Rats," whose name, by the way, begins with a W., and who 
rooms on the Alley, sent to New York the sum of $i.oo for the method of writing 
without pen or ink. This cadet, who has an unlimited correspondence, expected 
to learn things of great use in his career, but he received a card inscribed thuswise: 
"Write with a pencil." 

In anger flew his agile jaws, 

And swear words darted from his tongue ; 
STINSON was- fighting mad, hecause 

He couldn't make his bangs stay bung. 

"Ev-v" (first time at the Rink) — "Here, boy, get my skates for me." 
Skate Boy — "What number do you wear?" 
"Eva" — "Why, er-a-two, of course." 

ODE TO SPRING & EXPERIMENT STATION GO.\TS. 

The birdlet on the trceling, 

Now carols forth his notclet ; 
The boy that hath no feeling 

Ties tin cans to the goatlet. 

Wliat then? The spring is here, 

In palace and in hutlet ; 
The goat doth get upon his car 

And give the boy a butlet.

CadBT "Commandant, I just got a letter from my sister, who is in town 

and is quite ill, and requests my immediate presence." 

Com 'danT(— "That is strange; I got a letter from your sister this morning, 
asking that you be not allowed to leave College so often." 

Cadet "Er-a-yes-a. That must have come after the one I got was written." 

(Hesitating before leaving office)— "Major Lloyd, I would like to speak to you 
as man to man." 

CoMDANT — "You may do so, sir." 

Cadet— "Please tell me which one of us is the bigger liar— as I have no 
sister." 



M. A. C. Sk.vter (coining ont of Rink on a rainy cz'cviing to a girl he had 
been -rubbering of on the floor)— "^Sl^y I have the pleasure of protecting you with 
my umbrella?" .\nd she, with her large, black, expressive eyes, looking full into 
his, said, "Put up your rag." 

AT THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPOT. 
"Hawk" enters depot — Sees the time indicator for the 2 o'clock train— Sets

**C!)e inspector is Coming' 



(This is real poetry.— Ed.) 

Observe the miUtary bearing 
Of the students as they go, 
From class or meal, to and fro. 
They must be soldierly, you know ; 

For the time is swiftly nearing 
When the Inspector will come. 

Bright and early every morning, 

Hard at work with brush and broom 
Is every student in his room; 
That it may tidiness, resume; 

For the day will soon be dawning, 
When the Inspector will come. 

In "Commy's" office, stand attention! 
Be not careless, but instead 
Remove the hat from off the head 
And then salute; lest things be said; 

For "Commedant" is apt to mention 
That the Inspector is coming. 

Out at drill or dress parade. 
Every one must do his best: 
Dare not dispute command lest 
"Commy" would not be prepossessed. 

The "Commedant" must be obeyed, 
For the Inspector is coming. 

So thus prepare for that eventful day, 

With steady nerve and head erect. 

Let not a single thing reflect 

Upon the school which we respect, 

When the "Commy" is heard to say— 

"The Inspector has come !"

" "Tis a sad thing at the best. 

When you get a month's arrest, 
Or confinement in a bunch too big to count ; 

Or incurring 'Zips' in class, 

Your rage naught can surpass 
When sentinel duty comes in like amount. 

In the ranks to be 'called down' 

Has an aggravating sound ; 
'Tis no easy thing to stand there and keep 'mum.' 

From our honored Commandant 

To defend ourselves we can't, 
And accordingly your punishment will come. 

But all these things forget. 

They're nothing to regret. 
From all their bad effects you soon are rid ; 

But what a shame we feel. 

No words can ere reveal. 
When the O. D. finds us in the cupboard hid."

Cj)c lacfiult of a liisis 

( The following- pathetic story is told by one of our professors who went out 
calling several evenings ago) : 

"They were in a magnificently decorated room in a Connecticut avenue man- 
sion. 

"They approached each other from opposite directions. One of them was 
pale as a ghost, the other blushing red as a cherry. 

"Prescntlv they met, and, careless of the fact that dozens of eyes were 
watching them, they kissed eacii other. 

"The meeting seemed to bring them perfect peace: but, alas! they had 
scarcely been side bv side above twenty seconds when a man approached with the 
fire of battle in his eye. 

"With cool insolence he raised the stick he carried, antl then — oh, horror ! — 
he struck a sharp, quick blow, and the jiale one was sent spinning several feet awa\-. 

"The other neither screamed nor fainted. There was no heart-breaking, nn 
resentment, not even a murmur, liecause, you see, Ijilliard balls are used to that 
sort of thing."

a very easy bird to tame if anybody gets one when he is very young he will 
be as tame as a chicken when he gets to be full grown and he will eat from his 
hand and sit on his head when he walks around." 

"Shike," after telling a miraculous tale of adventure, '"Perhaps you think 
I should pick some of the feathers from the wings of my imagination and stick 
them in the tail of my judgment," ("Shike" will say such things sometimes.)

An album-leaf from liaiuls of friends, 

Is like a picture frame; 
Each page presents unto the sight 

A scene within a name. 

The writing may be fine and clear. 

Or it may be uncouth ; 
Be trembling with the weight of years. 

Or firm in strength of youth. 

The words of hope, or trust, or love. 

That decorate each page, 
May vie with all the wisest saws 

That indicate the sage. 

But this I write — unknown, unseen, 
(And tho' you may think me green — 

Which, by the way, is not my name. 
Or any other sung by fame.) 

An album is a clever thing — 

(Sometimes) it seems to me; 
Much like a seine that men do use 

When fishing in the sea. 

It catches many friendly words, 

Good wishes come to view ; 
And often hearts expose themselves 

In ways both old and new. 

If this so fortunate may prove 

That each leaf counts one friend, 
Your life will be a happy one 

Until the very end. J- F- A.

The team of M. A. C, 

Went to St. John's to play. 

It was not full of glee 
On that eventful day. 

The glorious sun was bright 

As we went on the field ; 
All were agreed to fight. 

Our college name to shield. 

Brave Reynolds was in the box, 
With his lengthy south-paw arm. 

He is a crafty fox, 

And we looked for endless harm. 

Old waiting Jarrell at the bat, 
His eyes so full of hate; 

He makes a pretty swat, 
And we calmly wait his fate. 

And then the big black ash 
In the hands of Curly Byrd ; 

Down towards first he makes a dash, 
On a hit — a tiling quite absurd. 

Make way for our brave captain. 
He is stepping to the plate ; 

A three-sack in right garden — 
And Curly isn't late. 

And thus through nine long innings 
We strive to win the fight ; 

No thought of the awful kiddings 
When glory was in sight. 

The score the tale doth tell. 
Of Ihc triumph of M. A. C, 

When mighty St. John's fell, 
The pennant lilue we see.

i|aUo\Dt'cn 1905 



(Al^ology to Key.) 

Oh, say can you see by tlie dawn's early light. 

What so proudly we hailed at the moonlight's last gleaming. 
Whose wild roars and loud crows, thro' the perilous flight, 

We heard from the College, were so gallantly screaming; 
The candles' red glare, the cheers bursting in air. 

Gave proof thro' the night the boys were still there. 
Oh. say do those boys of old Maryland's school 
On Hallowe'en night still play the fool ? 

In the distance dimly heard thro' the mists of the valley. 
Where the Prof's haughty host in dread silence reposes; 

What is that which the breeze brings now to the "Alley," 
As it fitfully blows from the Chemical Lab.? 

'Tis the grunt of a pig, for at old Maryland's school. 

On Hallowe'en night the boys will play fool. 

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore 

On Hallowe'en night in the year 1905, 
Our fun and traditions they would leave us no more? 

The students have managed to plan and contrive, 
No class-room to leave from its disorderly doom, 
On this the last night of the harvest moon, 
.■\nd the students in triumph at classes did stand. 
For on Hallowe'en night the chairs covered the land. 

E. A. B., '07.

14. Xearly all the boys skip "Reveille" and are reported. O. D. was not

the dance. He gets "hufify" and tramps two miles through a foot of mud for

Heaven.

Washington. He takes the first car for the city and visits the .\cademy. Comes 
back and declares that he can do better singing than that with a cold. Boys 
arc very careful of Showell. Who can blame them ?

comes out on the hall in night apparel, and asks Frantz if that is the first call for 
"Reveille." 

24. Lieutenants Bassett, Mitchell and Waters get to breakfast only five 
minutes late. Much excitement among the boys and the cook faints. More 
young ladies pay a visit to M. A. C. Ferdy does not talk to these. 

25. Showell tells a joke. No wonder the University of Penna. sent us a 
Y. M. C. A. man. We expected something. 

26. The O. D. catches Dudley in his own room the second time this year. 
"Will wonders ever cease?" "Mary" and Grampa "Jessie" also make noises like

married." We have a big dance. 

3. Ford, one of the ten weeks' students, sends for "Lovers' Oracle and 
Love Letter Writer." He expects to make a smash by correspondence. Shike

Brookland, D. C." Basket-ball game, Y. M. C. A., of Washington. Score, M. 
A. C, 19; Y. M. C. A., 36. Hard luck! 

4. Frantz, hearing the bugle call shortly after breakfast : "What is dat 
a-blowing? Is dat de sick list?" Some of the boys go to Berwvn to church. 
They had to sprint back on account of too many opponents. 

5. Prof, talks of grapes, using the word "berries." Oswald, suddenly 
awakening from a nap, asks if he is talking about blackberries. Prof. : "Er-er. 
Mr. Showell, why are you watching Mr. Oswald?" Shike: "I can hear vou and 
watch Oswald at the same time." Prof. : "You must be an ambudaxter." A lady 
asks Shike: "Why is a kiss like creation?" Shike could not answer, so she told 
him : "God made it and God knows its good." He refused to take the hint. 

A. Frantz misses "Reveille" and takes an explanation to Holloway. tlollowov : 
"Where were you?" Frantz: "Right dere at my post." H. : "Where was your 
post?" F. r "In de hind rank." H. : What is the hind rank?" F. : "De back rank." 
Stubby freezes his nose coming to college this morning.

7- Canby says he is on the sober list. Guns were issued to Company "A." 
Skating is fine. Comniy grants leave at 2.30. lioys like skating- so well that 
three are caught sliding down the rain spout near the Bridge of "Sighs" at 10.30 
P. M. with their skates. A new auto has arrived in the new building. 

8. The bovs who went skating so late last night went over to see Doc. this 
morning. Seniors have a class meeung and all is very quiet. Dramatic Club 
formed. Lots of fun expected. W'e had our first snow of the winter. Mayer 
and Bassett seem to be in very good s])irits to-day. They were in town last 
night. Mudd to Commy : "Do the colors inspect the guard when they are turned 
out for them?" 

9. Red(l\', in the bath-room: "Why don"t you knock on my door when }0U 
come in?" Oh, slush! the boys have to put on their rubbers. Inspectors from 
the Legislature pay us a visit. Everything takes a lively turn and Long Tom, 
while showing them around, runs out of tobacco. Tells Turner to find him some 
cigarettes, no matter the cost. Ferdie supplies them. 

ID. A sophomore takes a test tube to the Prof, and asks him to give him 
some ammonia gas in it. 

11. Services in chapel. The boys sleep well. Lippincott: "Dudley, what is 
3.X0.XIS?" Dudley: "45," and he tries to prove it. Dixon: ''What is this in this 
jar?" Caul: "Cold cream." Dixon: "I'll try some of it on my chapped lips." 
(The jar contained Maclaren's Imperial Cheese.) 

12. Bosley faints. Dickey runs for l\Iada:n Fitz. When she arrives Bosley 
is sitting on the bed .smoking a cigarette. Big fire in College Park. Boys do fin-" 
work as firemen. We have jam for dinner as a result. 

13. Bombs fly around the building very rapidly. Boys walk guard all night. 

14. Disorder still reigns. (Oswald, looking down a microscope, says: '"It 
stays in one place \-et still it is moving." Ingram has not gotten over his trip 
to Baltimore. 

15. Gallen reports Comniy for being twenty minutes late in coming out. 

16. Dixon and Mitchell buy safety razors to keep from cutting themselves. 
Caul goes to sleep in economics. Wakes up right quick and falls oflf the chair. 

17. Frantz. transmitting his orders, says: "Corporal guard — post No. 4 — 
cut out all rough-house. Take your post" The automobile has disappeared — 
for the present. 

18. The boys are sorry because they did not get their weekly naps: no 
preaching in chaiiel. I-'erdy is twenty years old, but he wisely keeps it to himself 
until the next dav. Shike forgets to put on his red l)andana handkerchief and 
catches cold. 

19. Commv comes back and gets reported for overstaying leave. Is sur- 
prised to see the shack still standing. Ingram, in looking down a microscope, is 

200 



much surprised to see writing;- on his shde, and is ahout to notify Prof. Norton 
of his find, when he makes the startlins;' discovery that his reflector is turned on 
his note-book. 

20. Jesse skips chemistry and blames it on liis memory. Frantz tells Stubby 
he is "drafting;'" trees. Hawk gets a whole bag full of mail. Sv asks AlcXutt 
how to spell twenty-one words in one period. 

21. Stubby is so engrossed in a letter that he walks right over top of a lady 
on the Pres. Hall. Senior mechanical section and General go to skating rink. 
Liz sports a dip. The Senior Agricultural section gets drowned and Calvert 
county rejoices. Ingram's heart fails him again and he goes home for his health ( ?) 

22. \\'ashington's birthday. Most of the boys go to Washington and some 
of the Profs, go to Alexandria. Pete and Liz get into trouble. The quartermaster 
makes a visit to the old Washington House at ISladensburg. Naughtv boy — 
"Admiral!" 

23. The seniors are told that they will have to stop loafing in Caul's room. 
Much gnashing of teeth, but Commy said he had to do it. Commy goes on O. D. 

and says, "Now, I be if things won't go right now." Preliminary debate for 

inter-collegiate debate with Delaware College, and naturally the "Morrill" wins. 

24. Caul comes back to the institution at 9.00 P. M. ! (The storm of the 
22d has apparently not abated yet. ) The foot-ball team goes to an "at home" at 
Hyattsville. Cooper smokes a big black cigar (nuf sed). 

25. Rain, fog, sunshine, lightning, thunder and chapel all in one afternoon. 
Showell leads the Y. M. C. A. Everybody goes to sleep. 

26. Cab pays us a visit. The stafif (including the "Admiral"), the com- 
panies and the battalion get their pictures taken for the "Rf.xeillk" and Fred is 
chief cook. Roy and Harper leave for the Y. M. C. A. convention at Nashville, 
and Ingram holds up this end of the line. 

zy. It really succeeds in snowing all day long. Hudson acts as commandant. 
Hawk spells hog, "Hoge," and resorts to dictionary to prove that he is right. 
Liz. forgets to "speak of his father." 

28. Lanny fails to meet junior class in surveying for the first time in the 
history of the institution. McEanny puts on a pair of clean cuffs and makes ink 
out of his old pair. Evans trys to eat Johnny Green's oxster soup and laugh at 
the same time. (Complications). 

I. Lanny falls through again. Ferdy forgets to take ten minutes to pull 
his coat down straight and prim himself before giving "Battalion, rise!" Mudd 
gets reported for visiting! Lizzy and Slippery report store leave. (P.ully for 63). 

201 



2. Coniniy tells Dick to lock his boxes up in his trunk when he gets them. 
Newman wants a sergeant to come and take charge of the "Rats" table. The 
old clock is put on its feet again, for the seventy-ninth time, and is guaranteed to 
keep pace with Major Lloyd's turnip for three weeks. Mary takes a girl to 
the theatre. 

3. "Handball" tele]ihones to his girl and tells her that she has been eating 
onions for dinner. 

4. Pete B. remembers to sign the O. D."s book. McNutt cleans house and 
Breeden chokes. Vocke and the nigger janitor the same. Slippery crawls out 
for breakfast at i A. M. Allen fails to get reported. (Some one has evidently 
not done his duty). The institution is on the rapid decline: no chapel, morning 
or afternoon, and no Y. j\l, C. A. ! 

5. First Sergeant Holloway gets in a draught and takes a dry shave. 
Shamberger smokes a cigarette. Mary S. tells Adams she can tell him by his 
feet. "Tuck" and "Polly" quarrel over a loaf of "I'aker's" bread. 

6. Big doings. The institution celebrates her fiftieth anniversary. Noted 

men come from far and near. Prof. likewise celebrates by shining his 

shoes. Buck Wharton approves sixty-one requests in five minutes, and every- 
body goes to town after the exercises. Johnny prepares a big spread for the "Col- 
lege Stafif" ( ?) 

7. Lessons admirably recited. Cadet B. : "Why, Oswald, you are not 
writing your theme a'ready, are you?" Oswald, with thirteen sheets of theme 
paper in front of him full of writing, looking up sheepishly, "N-no, I-I am just 
writing a letter." 

8. General comes down to breakfast five minutes late and meets the battalion 
coming up. McNutt, after making a splendid drawing of a "blue worm" which 
he has on his slide, calls Prof. N. — to look at his work. Prof. N. — congratulates 
him for the magnificent sketch he has made of a thread of his coat. Some of 
the waiters, including the head waiter, evidently got hold of some of the reiuains 
of the banquet. 

(J. Shikc tries to escape from reading Delin(|uenc\' List, but — "Its no use," 
Shike! Dudley and Hawk go snipe hunting. Jesse standing in the laboratory 
with mouth open, rulibing his hands, and smiling. He was watching his "e.\- 
]jerinient" go up in smoke." It (the cx]ierinK-nt ) was a success. 

10. .\ big bunch, including "Herr Williar" and "l\lic," go to the Rink. 
Bell does a rushing (or probabh' I should say snap]3ing ) business: "Stubby" has 

to stand im a chair in order tn get in focus for the ;'4 ])icture. Miss and 

her friends, together with two "butinskies," ])ass in review before the stares 
of the battalion, which is formed in twocs at the windows. Later on the bat- 

202 



talion passes in review in column of twoes with Miss and her friends on the 

stairs (stares). 

12. Jesse actually takes charge of the battalion, when Ferdie is O. D., with- 
out command. Dupuy spreads himself and turns his room into a hotel parlor. 

13. Prof. N. — "The scientific name of the apple is "Pyrus Malis.' "' 

C.\Dr;T R. — "Doesn't it get that name because the pics made from apples are 
often uialignant?" (We may mention J — y G — n's pies as a "case in point.") 

14. Mary spends half the evening writing the introfluctory sentence of a 
theme, and spends the other half reading it to the Seniors. Heyser mistakes Liver 
a la Charlie for porterhouse steak. How could he do it? "Rat" writes a composi- 
tion entitled, "Love at First Sight." We wondered why he was seen so often 
with Jesse here of late. 

15. Room 63 devises a plan to disperse the "after-meal-visiting crowds." 
Something of a freezing-out method. Room 44, for singing "Dearie" in what 
the occupant called an undertone (more correctly bum-tone), gets reported for 
gross disorder after Taps. 

16. "Billy" has a "cheese-knife" now and, with a martial air, goes as Gal- 
len's escort of honor. Iglehart forgets to sing "Never," never. Swan and "Eva" 
hitch-up. Pretty fair team ! 

17. "Dick" and his wife (?) .go on a walk to investigate "to let" cottages at 
the "Ville." What in the world can the class give them for a present? The Gym. 
has been turned into a skating rink. 

18. The lights go out on the ii-SS car, and the bells ring with a vengence, 
at which the conductor says : "T wish whoever is ringing that bell would cut it 
out, so we can see what we are talking about when we go to fi.x this car." Fred 
Waters got dov^m to Sunday breakfast for the first time this year. Canby decided 
not to take a bath in ink water. 

19. Nothing stirring to-day — Blue Monday. 

20. CoCKEv — "No, I have never seen Latin script, but I am quite familiar 
with the German." 

21. Owings is told by Professor Lanahan to go into the laboratory and set 
up the transit. After vainly waiting for him for five minutes, he finds him in the 
laboratory struggling with the level. "Mr, (Iwings, ." 

22. Caul misses the last car and walks to College from North Capitol street. 
Arrives at 3 A.M. Such a muddiness. 

23. Showell goes to the skating rink. Causes a sensation. In fact, a 
variety of sensations — pity, fear, anger, svmpathy, humiliation and merriment. 
Delaware debate takes place. Won by Delaware College. 

24. Saturday^ — Caul does not go to Chase's. 

203 



25. Professor Lanalian reads the Xew York American comic supi)lement 
all the way out from Washini^ton. Judging from his facial expressions, his ideas 
of humor evidentl)' do not agree with those of Mr. Hearst. 

26. Third term starts. Also much cussing. "Sophs." receive first impres- 
sions of German. 

2"/. Neither Dudley, Grason, Lippincott or Somerville hit the military list. 
I^ook out for trouble in Company "A." 

28. M. .A. C. defeats Technical High School. Score, 14 to i. 

29. 15uKi",KSS — "Professor, I remember it all right, Init I can't think of it just 
now." 

30. BvRi) — "I would like to get this team down to Crisfield to pla\- ball." 
Ferdv — "Darbw xou had better not go, or they will use you for bait to catch 

oysters." 

31. Ferd\- in the midst of a thrilling story — "And suddenly I heard him 
keep ])erfectly ciuiet." 

Slpril 

1. Ridgway gets himself mixed up with his laundry, climbs into the basket, 
which is slid down stairs and carried quite a distance to the car track before he 
discovers his mistake. 

2. Price spoils the "Prep." picture by opening his mouth just as the camera 
snaps. However, the class is saved eternal disgrace, as the photographer kindly 
consents to use another plate. 

^. Professor Spence is ably assisted h\ I'rufessnr William Cochran in the 
Junior German Class. 

4. Bkkicdon — "Oh! there go three of a jiair." 

5. Frantz calls Professor Richardson out of the examination room. Pro- 
fessor Richardson, thinking that it is something important, comes out in a rush. 
"Professor, can \ou change a dollar?" 

6. Todd expounds to the class that he will have a higher ranking sword than 
Shipley when they both l)ecome Seniors. 

7. Lippincott, C. returns from town at 5.30 P..M. Reason — He is broke. 

8. Cockey falls dnwn in the skating rink and kicks the "\\'elcome" sign in 
so doing. Class refuses to stand attention for Professor Norton. He had just 
divested each side of his ma]) of that big bimcli of \'irginia creepers and the class 
did not recognize liini. 

cj. lilue .Mnnday. with em])hasis on the blue. 

10. Calvert Comity becomes divided against itself, llreedon wishes to fight 
r.rome — but the latter refuses. 

204 



II. All pack lip and g;o home. 
II -1 7. Easter vacation. 

17. Only seven students get back on time. Ferdy does his duty with a 
vengence and reports enough boys, for over-staying leave, to fill two O. D.'s sheets. 

18. Squirrel resigns as President of the College Grove Club, and Rat M. 
takes the honored position. 

"Prep." R. wants some good book to read; not one of history or religion, 
but some book of "Friction." A new rat in the Freshman Class takes Stubby for 
a classmate. 

20. M. A. C. Third Team (of which Alphonse is Captain, Manager, Coach 
and Third Baseman) has a scrimmage. "College Park Specials" also play. Firor 
and Pollv get three hits a piece, as does also one of the umpires. The other one 
flees to a place of safety. 

21. Shikes wants to know why the people of San Francisco do not sell the 
Golden Gate and get some money that way. Holloway gets a bargain watch from 
Sears-Roebuck. Some time after midnight, Adams is aroused with this remark, 
"It is twenty-five minutes of two." 

22. Lannv asks ( )rt what acceleration is. Ort says that it is the time-rate 
of change of a body. Lanny — "Take this block of wood, for instance. What do 
you think that will change to, an elephant or a screwdriver?" 

23. "Mitch" nominates Shikes for Bacculaureate Sermon Preacher. 

24. Slippery — "I wish people would stop sending me cards without signing 
any names. I am getting tired of receiving these "Superfluous' letters." 

25. Central High plays a game of ball at College Park. Score, h — 4. M. 
A. C. Team also on the field. The umpire was in evidence. 

26. C.\DET AI. — "I am from Providence." "Oh! Are you?" Cadet M. — 
"No! R.I." 

27. Brome walks the whole length of the hall to get permission to visit in 
the next room ! Snow expected. 

28. The baseball team pours the oil on St. John's. Score, 5 — 4. The 
students parade the streets of Hyattsville, escort the team from the cars and 
build a huge bonfire (at the expense of several grapevines). 

29. No "Reveille." Breakfast at 9.30. One subject of conversation at the 
tables — Baseball. 

30. Dudlev sweeps out. By actual count, there are fifty nine "Snipes" 
(less than a half inch long) and three hundred and seventy-one burnt matches in 
front of his door afterwards. 

31. Oh, I forgot! April has only thirty days. \\'cll, you can take this "for 
good measure." and now, good-bye.
