®0 all those, in whose hands this book may come, and to those, who, 
by their earnest enthusiasm and willing co-operation, have helped lis 
in the achievement, we, the Editors, wish to extend our greeting. 

It is our sincere hope that it may appear satisfactory to all for 
whom it is intended. May it serve in years to come to bring back to you all 
the tender memories of the days that were, the hours of happiness, of old 
friends, tried and true. If we have succeeded in any manner in our object 
and have inspired in your hearts a deeper love of our old Alma Mater, we, 
the Class of 1909, feel that our labors have not been altogether in vain. 


To Prof. Thomas H. Spence who, by liis earnest enthusiasm, has tended 
to make our college life so pleasant, we, the Class of 1909, dedicate this, the 
thirteenth edition of The Reveille.

^ROFESSOR Thomas Humphreys Spence. to whom this vohime is 
J dedicated, is a native of Worcester County, Maryland, where he 
%X was born in 1867 at Lansdowne. the beautiful hcmie of his parents. 
Irving and \'irginia Humphreys Spence, near Snow Hill. His 
earlv education was carried on at home under the direct super- 
vision of his father, a gentleman of critical taste and scholarly attainments. 
Later he attended the Snow Hill High School, from which he graduated in 
1885. After a year of further preparation at Alaupin's University School at 
Ellicott City, he entered the Johns Hopkins I'niversity in 1886, matricula- 
ting in the Latin-Mathematical Course. In 1898 he left the I'niversity to 
become Principal of the Stockton Academy in Worcester County, about the 
same time registering as a law student in the otfice of the late Clayton J. 
Purnell. of Snow Hill. 

When the Maryland Agricultural College was reorganized in 1892, Pro- 
fessor Spence was elected to the Chair of Languages with instructions to 
organize a classical course leading to the degree of A. 1!. Having continued 
his private law reading, he in 1893 passed the bar and was admitted to the 
practice of law in the courts of Maryland. 

In 1901, Professor Spence was elected by the Board of Trustees, ^'ice- 
President of the College, which office he continues to hold. 

His talent for organization has straightened out many of the difficulties 
which naturally attend a growing institution and under his administration, 
as \'ice-President and Chairman of the Faculty Committee on College Rou- 
tine, the work of the College has been much systematized and improved. As 
a member of the Discipline Committee, Professor Spence has always in his 
mind the interest of the individual student, as well as of the college. Keen 
in the detection of the culprit, when college laws have been violated, he 
never loses sight of the fact that the "raison d' ctrc" of the College is to 
educate and build up the students in character and manliness, as well as in 
mentality, and that this can best be accomplished where discrimination and 
leniency go hand-in-hand with justice. 

As head of the Department of Languages in an institution especially de- 
voted to scientific work. Professor Spence has well maintained the dignity 
of his own department, which bears the imprint of his strong personality no 
less than of his literary taste and skill as a teacher. 

Of none more truly than of those born beyond the Chesapeake has it 
been said, "Cochtm noii aiiiininn mutant qui trans marc cnrrunt" and Pro- 
fessor Spence is still an Easternshorcman in those personal qualities which 
make life so delightful for dwellers in that favored region. Hospitable in his 
home, genial and courteous to all, he takes an active and sympathetic in- 
terest in everything which concerns the students of the college and is al- 
ways ready to meet with them, as a friend and adviser.

Sunset and evening star, 

And one clear call for me, 
And may there be no moaning of the bar 

When I put out to sea. 

For tho" from out our bourne of time and space 

The flood may bear me far, 
I hope to see my Pilot face to face 

When I have crossed the bar. 


RS. L. K. I'itzhut;!! died in Alameda, California, on December 1st, 
lOoS, at the home of her son. with whom she had gone to spend 
/^ ^ V the remaining years of her life. 
^ — . Mrs. Fitzhugh was for nineteen years associated with the 

Maryland Agricultural College. For the last fifteen years she 
was in charge of the hospital, in the capacity of nurse. Mrs. Fitzhugh pos- 
sessed great refinement and culture and we were privileged to have had her 
with us so many years. .\11 the "Old Boys" will recall her enthusiasm in 
their interests, and her every ready attention to all their needs — for she was 
a friend tried and true to the College. 

After leaving the scenes of her labors for so many years, she wrote 
many messages of love and continued interest in all at the College who were 
very near her heart.

At Maryland Agricultural College felt keenly the loss of an honored 
(^^J member of their statT, and the student body a beloved teacher and 
V enthusiastic friend. 

Prof. Xovik was a native of Norway and was ^^ years of age. 
He received his education in the Universities of Norway, Sweden, Germany 
and England. He came to us from Cornell University in August, 1906, and 
from that time until the date of his untimely death he was instructor in Hor- 
ticulture at this College. Prof. Xovik had endeared himself to the hearts 
of all with whom his life came in contact, — whose firm friendship and warm 
love he won l>v the ncibilitv of his nature.

v*^^ R. Owens, our late Treasurer, was born in the City of Baltimore on 
Jrj February 20th, 1839. He was educated in Newton University and 
J^^ the University of Maryland, from which he received the degree of 
CJ M. D. in 1859. 

He was resident physician in one of the almshouses in Balti- 
more. He then turned his attention to farming until 1885, when he removed 
to Hyattsville where he lived up to the time of his death, March 19th, 1909. 
He immediately became interested in the welfare of the village and was 
actively indentified with all schemes tending towards the advancement or 
beautifying of the town. He was repeatedly elected to the town council 
and in 1907 was chosen Mayor, which position he held until the time of his 

In 1890 he was appointed Treasurer of the Maryland .Agricultural Col- 
lege and held that office continuously. He was held in high esteem by all 
students and those who were associated with him, as he was known to be 
much interested in the welfare of the College; and in his death, the stu- 
dents know that they have lost a good friend.

YV LLISON. ahas, "Johnnie" comes 
C from Quaker town, but is not 
as slow as you would think. 
Johnnie likes to be in everything that 
is going on and you can usually find 
him about when anything exciting 
takes place. 

Johnnie is Prof. Gwinner's right 
hand man in the machine shop. He 

seems to delight in seeing how much 
grease and dirt he can get on his 
hands and face. He and "Billy" seem 
to enjoy getting into arguments in the 
rawing-room and each tries to outdo 
the other in the tone of voice used. 
.Sometimes you can't even think when 
they are arguing. 

He has a friend of the fair sex who 
must be (|uite a "Righter" judging 
trom the ami unit of mail he receives 
post-marked Philadelphia. He doesn't 
s])en{l much uvlm' an h(_>ur a day in an- 
swering her letters but seems to ac- 
complish quite considerable in that 
small amount of time. He says he 
intends getting married some day Ijut 
lasn't .set the day as yet. We all hope 
to be invited .so as to give him a good 
send off. 

"Johnnie" is a very military man 
and keeps a well-worn path between 
his room and Commy's office and upon 
the parade ground you can usually' 
see them holding some kind of con- 

He has high ambitions in his line 
if work and intends to go to Milwau- 
kee to further pursue the subject of 
Mechanical Engineering. 

He never spends a Sunday at Col- 
lege, why we do not know, but every 
Saturday he hies himself away until 
late Sunday night. 

Cij^ OYLE, alias "IJilly or '■Jiiiiniy, 
(S is from Massachusetts although 
living in Washington at the 
present time. He is a thorough Yan- 
kee and can easily he distinguished as 
one bv his speech. 

"Billy" is "Johnnie's" side partner 
and takes especial delight in arguing 
with him on the merits or defects of 
certain machines. He enjoys such 
subjects as Strength of Materials, etc., 
as taught by "Doc Tolly." When he 
was a Junior his favorite subject was 
Physics. Almost any Saturday you 
can see him walking along the streets 
of Washington with a pile of books 
under his arm, so we judge he must be 
a great reader. At any rate he is an 
authority on the latest developments 
of aerial navigation. 

We do not know much about 
"Billy's' love affairs as he does not 
live in the Barracks, but journeys each 
day to and from Washington. We 
think he must have some such affairs 
for when they arc mentioned in his 
presence a redness gently spreads over 
his face. 

"Jimmy" expects to 
kee land upon graduat 
his studies at Boston Tech. We knov 
that he will be successful there and 
expect to hear great accounts of him 
in the future.

I'erlin'al Elliott Blkkuughs, 

Croome, 'Sid., 

Civil Engixeering. 

Ti LIAS "Percy" comes from the 
C wilds of Prince George County. 
Percy is very popular among 
the young ladies of Washington and 
its vicinity, but says there is one special 
attraction nearer home and as he re- 
ceives an octavo volume two or three 
times a week, we guess he must be 
right. One of his chief delights is 
eating over on the hill. He is also 
a frequent visitor at our infirmary. We 
wonder why? Ask him. 

Percy is "some" musician as can be 
testified to by the members of Com- 
pany "A." Promptly at seven o'clock 
the concert begins and the "rats" and 
old boys flock to his room to sit and 
marvel at the harmony ( ? ) that rises 
from the various instruments upon 
which he performs. His specialty is 
playing a mouth organ and an accor- 
dian at the same time. You can ima- 
gine the result. That generally is the 
signal for the spectators to hie them- 
selves to a place out of hearing. But 
Percy enjoys it so what's the dif- 

He was a great military man until 
this year, but he says he thinks he 
will stick to good old Prince George 
after listening to some of Commy's 
experiences while doing duty for 
Uncle Sam. 

Percy's highest ambiticm seems to 
be to sneak off to towji without get- 
ting caught. His first question in the 
morning is "Who is O. C. tonight?" 
And upon being informed says, "Me 
for town tonight." It is not known 
what he does there, but upon return- 
ing about twelve o'clock, he says to 
his room-mate, "Gee, Bill, you should 
have been with me tonight !" But the 
reasons why are not forthcoming. 

He is a good student and orator 
and therefore has been chosen saluta- 
torian Iiv the class. 

/'[T(.)R^. alias "Ernie" or "Guinea" 
hails from we don't know where 
but he says he does. "Ernie" en- 
tered the Jimior Class after having 
been graduated from Central High 
School, \\'ashingti)n. D. C. His favor- 
ite occupation is catching bugs. Al- 
most any fine day you can see him witli 
his little net making vicious stabs at 
the air in a vain alteni])t to catch some 

poor bug who was unlucky enough t(i 
venture in the vicinity of his fateful 

Ever since coming to M. A. C. he 
las been very much interested in ath- 
letics. He played on the football 
team two years, being its captain last 
season. He was a member of the relay 
team last year, but has been too busy 
to run this year. 

His chief delight is in arguing with 
"Bommy" on the subject of socialism. 
When he starts on the subject it is a 
safe bet that no more recitation will 
be had that morning. 

"Ernie" has many feminine admir- 
ers and never lacks for escorts to our 
dances and games. Like "Johnnie" 
he never spends a Sunday at college, 
but on l'"riday afternoon he may be 
seen strolling down College Avenue, 
with a large bunch of flowers in his 
land. Of course he is taking them 
home, but we doubt whether they ever* 
reach there. His favorite location is 
the North East section of Washington. 

Ernest intends to go West in search 
of bugs, after graduating. We hope 
he will find plenty. He neglects to 
state whether he is going alone or not, 
but we think he will be accompanied 
by some fair maid. 


Herbert Marvin Coster, 

Solomon's, Md., 


nT OSTER, alias "Cassio" hails from 
Calvert County. 'C'assie" is, 
without douht, the "Beau Brum- 
mel of the class. He wears the most 
gorgeous waistcoats ever seen in the 
college. He has never been known to 
stay at college on a Siuiday. "Cassio" 

has introduced more girls to AI. A. C. 
than any other man who has ever at- 
tended the college. He says he hopes 
to be married some day ; but we are 
afraid he would have many breach of 
promise suits on his hands if he were 
to do such a thing. "Cassio's" favor- 
ite section of the country is Mt. 
Pleasant, and many a long walk has 
he had in the "wee sma' hours" after 
seeing some fair maid home from a 
college dance. 

He is very musical and loves to add 
his sweet ( ? ) tenor to any harmony 
he chances to hear. He is quite an 
athlete, being manager and a member 
of our relay team, which has done such 
good work this year. He is also cap- 
tain of the second baseball team. 

'"Cassio's" highest ambition is to be- 
come Professor of Chemistry at AI. 
A. C. so as to be near Washington. 

He probably receives more mail 
than any other man in the class an, 
it is no uncommon thing to see him"' 
serenely perusing as many as three 
letters in a mail, he says most of them 
are from home, but we have heard dif-

jQrYDEX. alias "Nux" is from 
C7 Eastern Slid.' Me is the young- 
est member of our class. "Nux" 
is little but. ( ). my! He is very fond 
of kidding- "Doc Tolly" but some- 

times he gets more than is coming' to 
lim. When he arrived here he was 
verv small in statue, but M. A. C. 
foiid seems to agree with him. 

It was not until the May liall, in 
lis Junior year, that "Nux" became a 
society man. He likes to give you an 
idea that he likes all the feminine sex 
alike, but he has two ".special deliv- 
eries" working overtime. Many a 
night he has left the college, saying 
that he was going to town, but we 
know that he never left the "hill." He 
is very slick in covering up his trails 
but doesn't always succeed. 

"Nux" seems to be trying to outdo 
"Micky" in his manner of speech. 
He has gotten to the point where he 
speaks as slowly as does "Micky ' 
and all he needs is a little practice in 
his pronunciation. He is young yet 
and says he wants to travel and see 
some of the world befc

Fork, Md., 


(gORSUCH, alias "Doc- or ■'Jimmy- 
hails from Baltimore County. 
He is a quiet sort of a fellow ; 
at least he appears so to the uniniti- 
ated, but let them see him when he 
breaks loose and they will quickly 
change their mind. "Doc" is essenti- 
ally a military man and therefore 

stands high in Commy's favor. His 
company is one of the best drilled and 
disciplined in the Battalion ; but how 
could it help being anything else with 
two such military men as "Doc" and 
"Holly- in charge. 

"Doc" is studying Engineering, but 
says he prefers a little farm and we 
would not be surprised to hear that 
he has abandoned engineering and 
settled down on a farm in Baltimore 
County with a certain little maid who 
doesn't liye a thousand miles from Col- 
lege Park either. "Doc" says he 
doesn't see why they don't carry let- 
ters from college to Hyattsyille for 
one cent. Perhaps his fondness for 
Hyattsyille is on account of his great 
love for music and they say she is 
quite a musician, at least "Doc" seems 
to know all the latest songs. 

\\'hen it comes to dancing, he is 
right there with the goods. He wasl 
very shy when he landed in M. A. C. 
Imt seems to have gotten over it. 
"Doc" often runs the risk of getting 
caught on Sunday night but says the 
game is worth the price. 

"Doc" is our best orator and has 
been chosen valedictorian. 



James Philip Griffin, 

Highland, Aid., 

Civil E.\i;inm-:ering. 

1\II"I-"I\. alias "Stuff" is from 
Howard County. He joined us 
in our Tunior vear after having; 

been away from college a year, travel- 
ing through the South. "Stiff" de- 
lights to sit and tell us tales of his do- 
ings while in the South. 

"Stiff's" favorite subjects are Ger- 
man and French. 1 le is an excellent 
( ?") French scholar. Ask "Holly" if 
he isn't. We all enjoy hearing him 
giving his version of the way the 
P'rench sentences ought to read. He 
is ver\' fond of telling Prof. Spence 
fairy stories and some of them cer- 
tainly are fairy stories. 

He is quite a social man and can al- 
ways be found at all the college dances. 
Every Friday night, rain or shine, he 
goes to town or a little way beyond 
and savs he guesses he will continue 
to visit there for some time to come or 
until he secures a good position and 
then — well we can guess the rest. 

"Stiiif" is a good student and many 
a hard problem has been gotten by his 
industry. W'e are sure that he will 
succeed in whatever he takes up. 

James Edwin Haslup, 


I^ASLUP, alias "Hots" is from 
Li Howard County. He has an 
abundance of auburn hair hence 
his name. "Hots" is studying Ani- 
mal Husbandry and loves to sit and 
talk about the qualities of the various 
animals that pass the Barracks. His 

principal occupation is going to town 
and viewing the animals at Bennings. 

He is quite a reader and is ready to 
give information upon almost any 
subject that is being discussed in the 
English class. 

"Hots" is not much of a society man 
but spends considerable of his spare 
time in the vicinity of Berwyn. He 
says he attends church on Sunday 
there and that is his reason for going 
in that direction every Sunday. Per- 
haps he does, but what does he do be- 
tween church time and twelve o'clock, 
the time he usually returns to college? 
Then again, he visits the Hagerstown 
Pair each Pall and his friends come 
back and tell of his prowess with the 
young ladies of that city. They must 
be true because his face usually be- 
comes the color of his hair when he 
is questioned concerning the truth of 
these stories. 

He says he intends to settle down 
after graduating, on a stock farm 
somewhere in Maryland. We know 
that he will have great success in his 
chosen work, as he is industrious and 
thoroughly understands the subject of 
stock raising. 


2^ LIAS, "Biister," "Holly," is also 
C from good, old FVince George. 
"Holly" is our hiisiness man. 
At any time during study hours vou 
can see him flitting from room to 
room, either with a bundle of pictures 
under his arm or a pile of clothes on 
them. It is the height of his ambi- 
tion to become a business man. .\fter 
collecting perhaps $15 you can hear 

him grumbling about the way the 
bo)'s pay. 

"You are the most iconoclastic, 
pseudonymiferous, etc., person I ever 
knew," is his favorite expression. Al- 
most any night }'ou can see him 
perched ujion the top-mast rafter of 
our new Mechanical Building ex- 
pounding t(5 the world at large the 
principal features of the Maryland 
.Agriculture College, "an institution to 
which I have so graciously attached 
my.self for the past four years," is the 
way he invariably starts out. "Holly" 
knows a little about everything, at 
least he says he does and we have to 
take his word for it. 

"Hollv" says he does not care nuich 
for feminine beauty, but he has been 
known to dress up and come down to 
the chapel for just one dance ; and then ,^ 
there is a mysterious letter he receives I V/^ 
quite often and which he claims i^ 
from home, but he guards it so closel\ 
that we are forced to believe otherwise. 

"Buster" is as changeable as the 
weather. One minute he is the most 
pessimistic person in the world and 
the next minute he flies off into a 
flight of oratory that would put Wm. 
J. Bryan to shame. We predict a 
great future for "Buster." 

LixwiKiii ( )rni:i,l Jarkell, 
Greensboro. Md., 


"jfARRELL, alias "Queenie." is from 
^ Eastern Slio". "Queenie" is one 
of the hard working men of 
our class, .\lmost any time of the 
day or night you can find him at his 
books or writing letters. He is not 
much of a ladies' man, but has a spec- 
ial, and if he doesn't get a letter every 


Monday night there is something do- 
ing. "Oueenie's" favorite topic of 
discussion is the marriage question, 
lie often says, "Say, fellow aint you 
going to get married?" Says he ex- 
l)ects to be married by next Septem- 
ber. He is an expert on cabbages and 
intends to settle down on a farm on 
Eastern Sho'. and raise them. "Queen- 
ie" delights to go to town to the Na- 
tional. One night he saw the "Round 
Up" and suddenly exclaimed, when the 
Indians attacked the white man : "Say, 
fellow somebody will get killed," and, 
"Man I wouldn't like to be in a fight 
like that." 

"Oueenie's" highest ambition is to 
get married and be a manager of a 
large estate. He often says, "Wouldn't 
it be great to be able to sit in an easy 
chair, smoke a pipe, and have nothing 
else to do but order others around.' 
Well "Queenie" we wish you success 
and hope your ambitions will soon bel 
realized. He takes everything in earn- 
est and "Taus" delights to sit and tell 
him stories. "Queenie" listens intent- 
ly until someone laughs and then ex- 
claims, "Say, fellow, you must be kid- 
fling me." 



Greensboro, Md 

iJARKELL, alias "Bear" hails from 
^ Eastern She' which he claims 
is "God's country." Like "Oueen- 
ic" he is one of the almost married 
men of our class. For the last three 
years he has never missed getting a 
letter on .Monday night. One day 
while he was reading a small sized 

ok he was asked the question, "Say, 
'Hear' what book are you reading?" 
and he answered, "Why man do you 
call that a long letter? There are only 
eight pages." 

"Rear" says he will never get over 
being homesick so he guesses he will 
lave to settle down close to his cjld 

He is a fine baseliall i)layer having 
played on the team every year since 
coming to college. 

"Hear" delights in "Rough I louse" 
and he and "Ram" often mix it up 
pretty lively and after getting finished 
it looks as if a cyclone had struck tlie 
room. Ask him about the night he 
took his sword to bed with him an< 
piled the wardrobe against his door. 
Was he afraid? Oh, no. 

He expects to settle down in Ba 
timore "washing bottles" or else to 
buy a farm on Eastern Sho', where he 
will be near home. His favorite ex 
pression is "A man's a man." If you 
ask him where he heard that he imme- 
diately breaks forth in laughter an 
that is the only answer vou ever re- 

Martin Koexig. 
Baltimore. Md.. 
Civil Engineerim 

i.t'^^^AILS" hails from Baltimore 
C' City, where he graduated 
from the City College, and 
entered our Junior year. He is a 
great student and spends the biggest 
part of the time in wondering if he 
will make a lo the next day. "Xails" 
first words of greeting in the morning 
are. "Sav. guv. give me a smoke." 

Somebody told us he bought a bag of 
tobacco last Fall, but we are from 

Like '"Ram." Koenig was surely 
bitten by the "tsete fly." the insect that 
begets the sleeping sickness. Ask him 
about the time he went to sleep in 
Economics and somebody yelled "fire." 
He also is fond of taking little forty- 
wink naps in Doc Tolly's classes. 

He is a fine muscian. a good per- 
former on the piano and a member of 
our band. He is guilty of most of the 
instrumental solos in chapel of a 
morning, when we are supposed to be 
singing hymns. 

Martin has a fondness for the fair 
sex, and especially for those in the 
vicinity of the ■■\ille." We often 
wondered why he always headed for 
there : but we soon discovered the rea- 
son. It is no uncommon sight of 
Sunday eve to see him strolling alon 
one of the streets of that town with 
small sized kindergarten in tow. 

Koenig e.xpects to teach when he 
leaves us. at least, so he claims. If 
he does he will surely become Dean of 
Mathematics in one of our large uni- 
versities, as math surely in his strong 


Charles William Rowland Maslin. 
Port Chester. X. Y.. 


.^IJASLIX. alias •Bill." Secretan- 

C of the "Barren Hoop" club 

and our honored Editor-in- 

Qiief. was blown into our realm in our 

Sophomore year. 

"Bill" is from the wilds of Port 
Chester, X. Y., and to hear him talk 
you would imagine it to be the leading 
city of the Holy Land, but like those 
cities it cannot be found on the map. 
To be frank it must abound in fair 



maidens and if any of them is men- 
tioned. "Bill" immediately exclaims, 
Til marn,- that girl some day." but 
we know this to be false as we know 
that he often stands at the window and 
gazes through the dim "Hazen" 
dreams of a little maiden nearer to 
old -M. A. C. 

"Bill is a hard subject to deal with 
as he is between two extremes. He is 
the oldest, yet the featherweight of 
the class, and we look upon him as the 
mascot of the class. He is a lover of 
Mathematics and when bridge design 
arrives he is right on the spot making 
3's and 5"s, then emphatically declares, 
"I knew that was right but thought it 
might be something else. I knew it 
well enough when I studied it last 

"Bill's" greatest achievements are 
along the military- line. \Ve often find 
him surrounded by various volumes 
on military- subjects with all of whicl; 
he is well acquainted. He says he 
would rather read the normal attack 
than Mark Twain. "Bill" is a special 
friend of Commy's and during the day 
can be caught in secret consultation 
with him discussing some needed 
change in the regulations. 

He is popular among his school- 
mates, and we predict for him a bril- 
liant future. 


Civil Eniiineering. 

[AYER, alias "Micky." or "Kid" 
hails from the mountains of 
Allegheny County and you 
would know it by his walk. He walks 
as though he had been used to climb- 
ins,'- up and down precipices all his 

He is one of our best athletes, play- 

ing both basel)all and football. He has 
])layed on the baseball team for the 
past three years. 

"Micky's" specialty is the study of 
Calculus. Strength of Materials, etc. 
1 le says he just delights in working 
i>ut the long problems. When "Kitl" 
starts out to recite you never know 
when he is going to get through. He 
always ends up l)y saying, "Well that 
is what 1 meant," when a Prof, cor- 
rects him. 

"Kid" was not much of a social man 
until his Sophomore year when he 
blossomed out into a full fledged so- 
ciety man. He delights to sit and tell 
of his love affairs and judging by the 
amount of mail he receives, he must 
h.ave a considerable number. He has 
girl friends all over the country but 
says none of them can beat the Wash- 
ington girls. He often takes a trip in 
town of a Saturday night with "Clan 
die" and has been known to miss the 
last car out. 

"Micky" is something of a military 
man, being Major of the Cadet Battal- 
iiiii. but says he doesn't believe he wi 
follow soldiering as the work is too 
hard and we don't blame him. 

He intends to settle down among the 
mountains after graduating. 

Civil Engineering. 

(Spalding, alias "Ram" is from 
C^ Harford County. He is with- 
out doubt the most mihtary man 
in the college. His greatest delight is 
in arguing on the merits of military 
training with "Uill" and "Percy" and 
never loses a chance to extol the mer- 
its of Conimy's military ])lans. He 

hopes to enter the anuy some day and 
we hope his ambition will be realized. 

"Ram" has a very melodious ( ?) 
voice and when a "rat" used to de- 
light his audiences with that well- 
known song, "The ram stood on the 
hillside" — hence his name. 

He has actually l)een known to 
glance at a member of the fair se.x if 
he thought she wasn't looking at him. 

His favorite studies are those he 
has with "Doc Tolly." He never 
misses having at least one nap in 
'"Doc's" classes and often has more. 
He says "Doc Tolly's" melodious voice 
lulls him to sleep. Sleep seems to be 
"Ram's" favorite occupation. When a 
Junior he was known to have been 
stuck seven times a week for absences 
from Reveille and breakfast, and this 
year he sometimes gets down in time 
to watch the Battalion march dow^n t.i 
breakfast. One of his favorite occu- 
pations is to light his pipe, have a 
book and get comfortably seated in a 
Morris chair. He soon tires of this, 
though, and suddenly you hear a low 
rumbling sound and upon looking 
around you find him sound asleep, and 
as he suddenly awakes he asks the 
question, "Was tiiat Taps that blew?" 

"Ram" is one of the best naturec 
and most pojndar of our classmates. 

Ai'STix Lea Stabler^ 
lirighton, Aid., 

i&TABLER, alias "Austin" is from 
<^y Montgomery County. He joined 
our class after having been 
away a year on account of illness. Aus- 

tin does not board in the Barracks, but 
lives like a "king" at the Experiment 
Station. He is an influential member 
of the Grange. His specialty, so they 
say. is the raising of hogs. He, like 
"Reddy," likes to sit and talk about 
the qualities of the various animals 
about the college farm and Experi- 
ment Station. 

He is a great reader, especially does 
he enjoy reading the numerous Ex- 
periment Station bulletins and is ready 
at any time to discuss the latest meth- 
ods in the raising of grains and stock. 
I le can usually be seen walking up to- 
\\ ard the college with the latest bulle- 
tin under his arm. 

.\ustin is not much of a society man 
but of course we can not tell much 
aliout his affairs with the fair sex as 
he is very secret about such things, but 
we hear that there is someone waiting 
for him in dear old Montgomery 
County. He expects to settle down o 
a farm and raise stock. 

We wish him success in all his un 

Carroll'xu Cordell Tauszkv, 
Baltimore, Md., 


0TARROLL, alias "Taus" is from 
Lialtimore. He attended Balti- 
more Polytechnic Institute and 
entered M. A. C. as a Junior. "Taus" 
is one of the wittiest men in our class 
and can keep almost any one in con- 
stant laughter with his funny sayings 
and doings. He especially delights in 

amusing "Claudie" and "Queenie." He 
would make a iirst-class actor if he 
should ever go on the stage. 

His favorite studies are those held 

11 the Mechanical Building under 

Prof. Gwinner. He says he would 

ike to s])end the whole day stud}-ing 

Britlge Design. 

"Taus" has taken great interest in 
athletics since joining our class and is 
one of our best football players. He 
also runs on the relay team, which up 
to the present time has done such good 
work and has yet to be defeated. 

Like "Micky" he is a great ladies' 
man and has girls in all parts of the 
country, but at present seems to favor 
the ones in the vicinity of Hyattsville. 
He and "Nux" are often seen on their 
way to the 'V'ille to visit a very popular 
young lady. He is also very fond of 
gems being especially attached to 
"Pearls." "Taus" is quite a poet and 
many a poem has found its way to th 

His favorite occupation is lying on 
his back reading magazines and 

At the beginning of the year Tausz- 
ky entered St. John's at x^nnapolis, but 
soon came to the conclusion that M. 
A. C. was good enough for him. 

TJTL'RXER, alias "Claudie" or as 
tlie girls call him, Alan Claude, 
is from Calvert County. He is 
one of the most popular men in col- 
lege. He is also one of the married 
men of our class. Like "Oueenie" he 

says that he will he married as soon 
as he earns enough to live down ■■v(jn- 
der in Calvert County." He says 
"( live me a house antl farm and a wife 
and I'll lie satisfied." 

He is one of the jolliest men in the 
class and it is no uncommon sight to 
see him on the verge of hysterics over 
one of Tauszky's jokes. Once when 
he was a Junior he laughed so hard 
that he sprained his ankle, 

"Claudie" is a great singer and al- 
most any time of the day you can hear 
the melodious strains, "I'm glad I'm 
married." His favorite occupation — 
after su])per — is to go to the chapel 
and get "Teens" to play "rag" while 
he sings. 

As manager of the baseball team he 
has arranged a good schedule and has 
at last gotten our baseball diamond in 
shape having it skinned and rolled, an 
object that has been tried unsuccess- 
fully for several years past. 

One of "Claudie's" favorite spots is 
the large and flourishing city of Alex 
anilria, \'a. He delights to sit anc 
tell of its beauties especially the femi 
nine beauties or beautv. 

^Ibtnry nf the (Class uf UUUl. 

AS it cunie? Vc's. TIk' time has arrived fcir the Class of "nau^htx 
nine" lu liid farewell to its iild home of M. A. C. and venture forl'.i 
alone, eaeh man to ti^ht the battles of life throiiL;h whieh he ean 
see vietor\- and a prosperous future before him. 

When four years ago, September 2ist, 11J05, we toiled up the 
winding avenue and gathered together as a class, fifty strong, the time when 
we would stand upon the platform in the college auditorium and tium the 
responsibilities of a Senior Class to the Class oif lyio, appeared to our home- 
sick hearts to be separated from us by an infinite space of time. Hut we 
have now reached that time and will begin the sterner work of life, con- 
scious that we have left liehind a record which will be an example to future 
classes, and of wdiich we are justly proud. 

Like all patient "rats" we patiently endured the trials and tribulation^ 
of our Freshman year, but we were not at all backward and soon settled 
down to hard work, sending out volunteers to the various departments of 
athletics, helping to win that year the much prized pennant and training 
our class-mates to handle the various animals on Hallow'en night. Winter 
came and the Siiphs prevented home-sickness by holding our an.xious atten- 
tion every moment, and with the first opening of Spring 'oy was the early 
bird on the baseball diamond and bellied to form a team, whose success 
seemed to stimidate our minds for our final e.xams. 

(Jur vacation like everything else soon came to an end, and we re- 
turned in September with our numbers increased by at least a score. We 
were no long'er "hreshies" but hanght\- .Sophs, who extended the "glad hand' 
to the standard bearers of lyio and 11. 

As time ])assed off (|uickly. football absorb.ed our spare time, as it did 
the year before. Winter came and with it examinations, liy this time we 
were alive to the fact that this year was to be the test. lUit ambition was 
nnining high, all were anxious to excell, thus show'ing an interest in our 
Work, r.efore we were fully aware of it, we had arrived at the end of our 
.second year and after a ])leasant trip to Jamestown h'xposition, we were once 
more confronted with sweet vacation. 

.\t llie v\](\ of three months, we were eager to retiu'u, but what had lie 
come of our large class? Although we were eager to welcome three new 
memliers. we were comiivlled to laimch oiu" Junior year onl_\' twenty-two 
strong. Auiillier nine months battle, annther victor\- won. .\s funiors we 


became convinced of needed changes in our military department and stated 
such changes to the Trustees. 

Exams over, we left scho(jl to return in September, fully determined to 
make M. A. C. a military institution, and to find that our request had been 
considered. The corning of our new "commy" helped the good cause and 
we succeeded in changing the cadet uniform, cheverons, and equipment. 

We are Seniors now, numbering nineteen, soon to graduate. We are 
on the top-most round of the ladder and cannot look back without our hearts 
throbbing tenderly and almost longingly for those happy, careless col- 
lege days again. We have been able to preserve harmony in all matters 
whatever. It will be our aim to continue this relation even after our 

As a whole, this year has been uneventful except in the gradual uplift- 
ing of the military department, and we hope to obtain the foundation on 
which dear old M. A. C. is raised to a place in the "big six." 

The end is near. Yes, even as I write I can see it gradually growing 
nearer through the ever-thinning haze. May we all reap the fruits of our 
labors and leave the walls of our Alma Mater to begin the glorious and 
prosperous future. 



Farewell — what mystery surrounds that word 

What varied thoughts seethe to the brain. 

Lik'd to the hobbling, weazened, witch of old 

Who crooning o'er her cauldron with her Hellish drones 

The spirit Grasp of Days of Past — retains. 

Farewell — a friend's strong grasp is given, 
A tear wells to the eye, then silence reigns. 
One last fond glance — a heart-drawn sigh, — 
Then naught but fairest memories remain. 

Farewell — the fitful flame flares forth, then slowly dies,- 
The Earth is wrapped in deep Cimmerian gloom, — 
And Elves of Pensive Mood return again 
The Days of Days which passed away too soon. 

Farewell — how often in Life's simple span we dream 
Of Deeds, Ambition, which we fostered from 
The days before we said Farewell. And now 
We wait for Death — our Earthly work is done.

My M. A. ('. of thee I sing, 

My Alma Mater true; 
No matter where I ever roam, 

I'll always dream of you; 
Those good old days. 

Old tollege days 
Bring back fond memories; 

"I lo\e you still 
And always will. 

My dear old M. A. r." 

Life passes quickly as a dream. 

With all its joy and care. 
But as I look back to the past 

I see a vision fail'. 
Those gray old walls rise once again, 

Old days rush back to me; 
"My heart must thrill. 

For naught can still, 
My love for M. A. ('." 

But in the years to come we'll meet, 

And laugh at Father Time, 
For naught can ever separate 

The Class of Naughty Nine 
So here's a toast to college days 

And all dear memories: 
"In blood red wine, 

Of soul divine. 
We'll drink to M. A. C."

(^/^JLSS order and more racket ! Quiet I say ! The gentleman from 
i-C At I Charles County has the floor. Mr. Hamilton, what have you to 

y"^ say?" 

L "As I was going to say." begins "Georgie." "As I said be- 

fore. The mass of the people form the bulk of the population ; 

and in consideration of the fact that" "Ah, sit down, some one 

shouts, and the fair haired one's intended aeroplanic flights into oratory 
came to the ground with a crash, as "Dutch" Ward pidls him to his seat. 

Cieorge E. Hamilton, my dear friends, is by far the most important man 
in the class of 1910. A diligent, and intelligent ( ?) student, a perfect Apollo 
and a confirmed admirer of the fair sex. "Georgie dear" certainly is the 
name tliat suits him best. We wonder who thought of it. Most likely it 
w^as "Sus" for "Sus" is one of "Georgie's" most ardent admirers. In fact 
the infatuation that "Sus" bears for "Georgie" is astonishing, and if the 
little girl in Cambridge but knew of it, the green-eyed monster would surely 
eat her heart out. ( )f course we all admire "Sus" for his prowess in athle- 
tics, but alas, how sad it is that one so young should fall to women's charms. 

r>ut step to the Campus with me a moment, gentle reader, and view the 
sight there. "What? You ask if that is the awkward squad at drill? No 
indeed, sir! Make no such mistake as that, sir. That is the Junior C. E. sec- 
tion, future bridge builders, coal diggers, and world astonishers receiving 
their first instructions under the friendly guidance of "Doc Tolly." There 
are noble men among these Engineers ; Allen the boy-wonder in Calculus 
and Physics, although unhappily pierced by one of Cupid's darts ; Saunders, 
the wise, the knowing, the sage, the philosopher, the ask-me-and-I-will-tell- 
you, cif the Class of 1910; Wm. P. Cole, of Towson, Md., a man of great parts 
and great importance, and one of the married men of the class f ask Bill how 
Sis is). Wm. G. Cole, no relation of the foregoing Cole, and he says he is 
glad he isn't, "liill" Frere, well known as one of the good looking men of 
the class, but we believe he has become an avowed bachelor, and yet this is 
strange for there are rumors of "Hill's" once having a "vision" out to a 
dance. The "vision" certainly must have been cruel to "Bill" for he has not 
looked at a woman since. 

Edgar H. Price, alias "Boozer," the proud possessor of a pair of .soul- 
lul dark brown eyes, which hold captive every maid, who come within their 
range. These arc the future engineers, and to say that M. A. C. is proud of 
them is to sav the least. 


"Tis Init a shnrt walk, friend, to the machine shop on the left. Here 
amid the tiap])ing belts and whirring lathes, down in the depths of a hole, 
fearsume to behold, you will find six more of our doughty band, working 
out their destiny, by the sweat of their brow, mingled with no little grease. 
"Dutch" \\'ard, sometimes called "Tubby"; Miles Woolford from Eastern 
Sho' : "IJill Tydings," the curly headed, "Hots" Munson, a marvelously 
fleet-footed youngster ; L. G. True, the only original up-to-date Geo. Wash- 
ington, Jr., and "Bauzer" liauer. Here my friend you find six of the most 
perfect specimens of American manhood, true, brave, honest, upright and 
zealous in the pursuit of their duties, and sturdy supporters of the colors 
of 1910. "Dutch" Ward is bv far the most beautiful of this aggregation, 
having a lovely width of beam, exceeded only by his good nature. Bauer 
seems to be the only married man of this bunch, for his visits to the "Dale" 
are too frequent to escape notice, but we excuse him in ihat. considering his 
other aljilities, esjieciallv football. .And who knows, but that some fair 
"dircctoirc" damsel on the sidelines, inspired those "three beautiful place 

In direct contrast to Bauer's steady and easy-going ways we have Tyd- 
ings the man of impulse, of action, the heart-breaker, the trifler, the gallant 
(lashing military man, the eloquent and ])ersuasive Tydings. That he is Ijound 
to sticceed cannot be denied, but his way will be strewn with hearts he has 
broken. We are only waiting until he gets his Ijumps from some fair maid 
and he wakes uji to the cold realization that after all Tvdings is only 

"Hots" Munson seems to be in a class by himself, for a runner he is 
not 111 l)e excelled. He seems to be a regular Mercury, if one has imagina- 
tion enough to conceive of a red headed Mercury. His one strong is argu- 
ing on Connecticut, Yankeeism and the "nigger question." He is the only 
person that has the nerve to face Tydings on the latter c|uestion, and has a 
forcible way of ])utting a damper on that one"s forcible oratory. L. G. True 
otherwise known as "Abe." as before stated can trace direct descent to him 
of cherry tree and hatchet fame, but that he inherited all the qualities of his 
famous forefather, is doubted by quite a few. "Abe's" wonderful experi- 
ences have held us all entranced time and time again. But I'll tell you the 
reason he relates them with such a confident air. He has told them so often 
that he believes them himself. 

\ow sir, if you arc interested in Chemistry, we will step into the lab- 
oratory and there — .\t this point my friend and I were attracted by a shrill 
cry "Corn is King!" "Oueen Alfalfa!" "Princess Cow Pease!" and with a 
scurry of feet, a little "rat" scoots around behind the building fearful lest 
he get caught, and looking across the canqnis we see a tall, rather lean figure, 
in a brown cravenette, with a Inmch of grass in one hand, coming up from 


llic Experiment Station, and at varicuis intervals, straggling along behind, 
come three catlets of various mien and tigure. These are three sons of the 
soil, as]iirants to that worthy profession of farming. Call them what yon 
will, in these modern times they have justly earned the title of Agriculture 
Engineers, .Maxwell, Stanton and Gray. The first of those is a man exceed- 
ingly backward and retiring, and consequently one does not learn much of 
him. Frank as he is .sometimes adilressed by his fellow agriculturists has a 
long head for study and has never been known to make a "zip." lie knows 
more about Tactics than Commy himself. Samuel D. Gray hails from 
Charles Countv and doesn't care wlm knows it. He says the days are longer, 
the flowers are sweeter, and the girh prettier in Charles County than in any 
other spot on the Earth. Sam is a firm devotee of Prof. Taliaferro, and 
drinks in all the knowledge he can concerning crop rotation, fruit growing, 
cattle raising, etc., and whether he ever molests the Professor's prize pul- 
lets we do net know. T. Ray Stanton, is from the mountains, by jingo! 
Stantcin is the fussiest, make-a-big-noise-over-nothing person in the college, 
lie particularly hates the epithet Cliff-dweller, and on occasions has been 
known to show fight when so addressed. It is really interesting to hear him 
tell of his trips to the Hagerstown h'air. He never forgets anything, and 
puts in all the details and dwells long and loud on his flirtations at the Fair. 
That Rav is short in statiu^e but long in wind cannot be denied by anyone 
who has come within earshot of his voice : but we all join in asking him where 
on earth he got that laugh, .\nother friend and supporter of Prof Talia- 
ferro we have in our clasc in the sha])e of "Raphael" Hoen, the two-year 
short course man. lie is part of a twin, but as he is the best part, the other 
part will not be mentioned. His favorite occupation is lying in bed at 
Reveille, and skipping chapel. However, the one thing, and the only thing 
for which he is noted is that he can realistically imitate a full brass band. 
He has a very strong desire to go upon the stage, but a little damsel, at 
Washington College, holds him entranced, although we wonder what makes 
her so foolish. 

These }-oung gentlemen coming out from the Science Hall, are all 
delvers into science. The first. Sidncv S. Stabler, is a profound student of 
bugology and has formed an alliance with "Si", and can be seen most any 
fair day chasing bugs and butterflies all over our College Park. He is a 
knowing sage, and always read\- to give his advice, whether it is wanted or 

The next, .Messrs. .Strick];ind and .Steffens. niv dear sir, are enlisted as 
horticultural men. Strickland because he likes it, Steffens because it is tlie 
easicst. Oh! If tlicre were onlv a theological course for such would suil 
llie pensive Strickland exactU', .-md after all "Parsons" Strickland would not 


sound so bad. Steffens has all he can do holding up his end of "C" company 
and quarreling with the Dagoes on his hall. Does any one want to pick a 
quarrel? Well! Just look up Steffens. When he comes to "Dutch" though, 
he is the only one in the class that knows anything, and is Boo-hoo's constant 
source of reference. 

And now we come to the list of chemists, noble men they, who toil all 
day in a terrible ill-smelling laboratory, to seek out nature's secrets and bene- 
fit the world by them. "Pete" Walters the dean of the section is a chemist 
of note, also quite a physicist, and lover of that enjoyable study, and also 
enjoys the distinction of being the smallest mite on the baseball team. "Such 
a cute little fellow" the girls say, but it is of no use. His head is not turned 
by flattery for he is faithful to his "Eloise" and every second day brings 
from her a message, sweet of tenderness and love. "Pete" says the pen is 
mightier than the sword. That he actually believes it is shown by the large 
number of letters that he sends every week over to "Eastern Sho'." 

John W. Duckett, the other chemist, is a man of exceeding brilliancy, 
especially in respect to his luxurious crop of auburn locks, wherefore he has 
suffered the fate of all those similarly blessed, and has been christened 
"Reddy." His extreme good nature is proverbial, for he has never been 
known to become angry. His only bad habit is his fondness for visits to the 
citv on Saturday nights, never having been known to miss a night if possi- 
ble. "Reddy" seems to be absolutely girl-proof; but how he manages it wc 
do not know. 

And last of this illustrious crowd, my dear reader, comes myself. Of 
me there is little to say. I only came from thence, and am bound on my 
way to thither. My past seems to be one of a mere spectator. My one ob- 
ject is to see every thing and record it, and say nothing. In short, I am the 
scribe, as it were, of the class of nineteen ten. and am not allowed to think, 
speak or act for myself, consequently have had none of the experiences of 
my class-mates, have not even fallen in love. 

Now, friend, I have introduced to you in turn, each of our noble class. 
It is unnecessary for me to state to you in chronological order the doings of 
the class, their triumj^lis, their victories, their escapades. .\11 these are clas^ 
history 'tis true, but these men constitute the class, and knowing these men 
you know the class of 1910. 

Our past has been that of the average class that has passed through the 
institution. Of our future I can say little, as few of us are looking further 
ahead than the examinations, the verdict of which makes us Seniors or not. 

The class of nineteen ten bids you farewell, gentle reader, until next

11 man, and September. 1908, finds lis once more within the walls of 

^^J^ I lid M. A. C. eagerly scanning the fifty names that constitute the 

roster of tjic Class of 191 1. Sorrowfully we note the absence of some 

friend of the previous year, gladly we welcome the numerous new 


Immediately we began to take advantage of all <.)ur privileges as 
.Sophomores. Right zealously did we put intc) practice those ideas of Sopho- 
more ])restige. which were so forcibly instilled into us by the Class of 1910. 
The new msmbers of the Class of 191 2, otherwise known as "rats" are in- 
debted to us for many a lesson in voice culture imparted before an audience 
that wa- e\er readv with the stimuli for the modestly inclined. We also feel 
confident that many of them will (|ualify for the track team as a result of the 
practice, which we gave them in running the gauntlet. 

While we were very much afraid that they did not appreciate our ef- 
forts, at the time, we arc consoled by the knowledge that in so doing we 
onl\- u])hel(l the traditions of our college. 

Having discharged our duties in this respect, we liegan to look around 
[or new worlds to con(|uer. 

It happened on a keen ( )ctober night. The ( ). C. had, as we thought, 
made his last inspection and retired for the night. ( )ut on the campus, under 
a huge i)ine, the softly whispered notes of Reveille announced to those who by 
laundry chute or rainspout had escaped from the barracks the rendezvous of 
our class. 

Then followed a hasty conference to decide just what steps should be 
taken to hold up the honor of the class. Our worthy President, \'ice-Presi- 
(lent, and Commandant were each considered, but all finally abandoned in 
favor of a visit to Hyattsville. 

T'or two years now had that town enjoyed immunitv from Sophomore 
raids and, thinking no doubt, that the reception accorded the Class in 1906 
had put an effectual dam])er upon all further such designs they had relaxed 
their caution. But they were undeceived that night. 

Thus lulled into a sense of security they were totally unprepared f(jr 
the whirlwind that descended u])on them. Down Maryland Avenue marched 
the little band of Soi)honiores, a self-appointed town improvement commit- 
tee, as evidenced by the effectual manner in which thev disposed O'f all water 
troughs, arc lights, fences, etc., that did Udt harnninize with their ideas of 
iunnici]5al beautv. 

In order that there might be no doubt as to the character of the visitors 
at frequent intervals the slogan of 191 1 rang through the night carrying a 
chill to the hearts of the townsmen thus rudely awakened. And those who 
were even so unwise as to come to the window to investigate soon repented 
of their indiscretion. 



At length, having given the town a good general rough-house, we 
turned our weary footsteps towards college and arrived there about three 
A. M., onh' to find that our sanctums had been raided by a suspicious (J. C. 
and the missing occupants reported, ilut not even the demerits and pun- 
ishment that followed could destroy our consciousness of having done a 
good deed. We had wreaked vengeance upon that town for its insult of 

In the celebration of Hallowe'en this year, our class established a pre- 
cedent, that might well be emulated by our successors. If Hyatlsville ex- 
pected to redeem herself as a host this night and to give us a reception that 
should atone for her neglect upon former occasions, she was doomed to dis- 
a]jpointment. Hyattsville had been honored more than was her due. The 
attractions which she offered did not measure up to the standard by which 
we now gauged our actions. We sought a wider field for our HalU)we'en 
merriment and consequently the class transferred their patronage to 

The same spirit was manifested on Thanksgiving Day, when amidst the 
cheers of the Sophomore Class, our blue and gold standard waved so proudly 
at the top of the college flagpole. All day the emblem of 191 1 floated in the 
breeze, flaunting defiance in the face of the othc classes, a defiance which 
remained unaccepted so that finally out of respect for "( )1(1 ("dory" we were 
compelled to lower it ourselves. 

And thus in all things we endeavored to place our class to the front. In 
athletics we have made an enviable record, having furnished more than our 
quota upon the football and baseball teams. Socially, we have begun to 
contrilyute to a great extent to the success of the Rossburg dances. 

In every field of effort open to the student we have tried to acquit our- 
selves in a manner worthy of the class and of the whole institution with 
which we are affiliated. 

And now I close the record of this year, confident that as Juniors we 
will live up to the expectations which we have aroused and that we will en- 
rich our college with the halo of true greatness.

Qllass ^tslorg of 1912. 

(^i T was oil the 17th clay of September, 1908, that the Freshman Class 

J I entered the portals of this institution. 
^Jl Our class is composed of nearly fifty members, who, I think 

r^^ can hold their own in athletics, gallantry and study. Several of 
our members were students in the Preparatory Class last year. One 
could plainly see that despondency was written upon the lace of those who 
had never before experienced the novelty oi the first few days of college, 
and they had been told terrible things about the Sophomores and this caused 
a few uneasy nights. In about two weeks we held our first class-meeting 
which the vainglorious Sophomores attempted to interrupt, but they were 
met at the door by the plucky Freshmen and after about five minutes of 
strenuous effort were glad to give up the struggle and let the meeting go on 
in peace. 

In two weeks time we were accustomed to the college work and became 
eager participants in the college sports of which at that season football is 
the most prominent. We are proud to say that several of our class took a 
prominent part in many of the hard ifought battles on the gridiron and cer- 
tainly upheld the honor and motto of our class. 

We were long in deciding how we should spend our Hallowe'en, but 
at last we decided to go to Washington and have our fun. 

At last Thanksgiving came and some of us went home to spend the few 
days of recreation. Time moved on slowly until we began to look forward 
with great pleasure to Christmas holidays. Indeed we almost regretted that 
we had to return to college after the ])leasant fortnight spent at home. Hut 
we carried with us the recollection of a Christmas vacation most pleasantly 
spent, and resolved to make these recollections a stimulus for better work 
during the remainder of the scholastic year. 

Having so worthily discharged the duties of Freshmen during this year 
the Class of 1912 is now looking forward to the June examinations, which 
shall decide as to those of our number who will stanil as worthy Sophomores 
for the ensuing year, and in that year as well as in all the years to come to 
u])hold upon the gridiron, the baseball diamond, the track and in the study 
hall the honor of the Qass of 1912.

Dear Father: — 


®i|e JVrrt&al" 

College Park, Md.. September 20, 1909. 

I arrived safely here at M. A. C, and have begun to take up the general 
routine of college life. The first evening I was re(|uested to attend a meet- 
ing of the Y. M. C. A. and upon conclusion of the exercises — which will 
always stick in my memory — and other places — I went to bed, wiser, and 
with great deal more feeling than I have ever heretofore experienced. I was 
miaware that my oratorical ability was so pronounced, yet it is sufficient to 
say that at the conclusion of my extemporaneous speech, I was showered 
with applause, and other articles, not of much value to the holders. Still it 
all is in the game, and I am feeling at home in more ways than one. I have 
just bought a second-hand uniform, for the small sum of ten dollars, though 
I fear this amount is slightly above the value of the goods. I presume the 
surplus was merely a requisite remuneration for the expense of the eulogv 
expended by the cadet, who disposed of the "trash," which is a nickname, I 
hear, for cast-off clothing, in carrying about the suit, and offering it for sale. 

Classes begin tomorrow and I intend to apply myself continuously to 
my studies. It is nearly time to retire, so I must close, with love to mother 
and yourself, from 

Your affectionate son, 

"C. E. C. T." 

Letter No. 2. 

M. A. C, November i, 1908. 

Dear Governor: — 

One of the "profs." tackeled Old Man Trouble, and naturally got his, 
and is now doing time in the second ward, so I have got a few spare mo- 
ments to sling ink spots on the papyrus. 

The football nailed me on the wing and I am doing a high flying stunt 
holding down right half. We chucked it to Gallaudet the other day 5-0. and 
the "dummies" are trying to talk U. S. A., instead of finger language, to 
square the deal. 

I got a stick the other night from the O. D. for not putting Shinola on 
my hoofs and I am due to sling a fifteen pound Krag promiscuous around 
the landscape. The O. C. came in nasty too, and did me to the tune 5-4, a 
simple step done in slow time with variations. I was pounding my ear at 
forty miles an hour today, when "Doggie," my wife, did the heavens of a bit 
of sky juice and H- O'ed me plentifully. 

Went to Wash the other night, and raised a few chords enough to wake 
the guy with the stick, who took us to the high corrall, kept by the city, 
planted us in a 2 by 4 hole, with a grate window, where the sunlight made a 
checker-board on the floor. I got tired of grafting on the town, so I tipped 
the J. P. 2.45 and cleared out. 

Sling a nasty foot this Friday, and have got a swell young dame to 
drag along, so drop me about five bucks of the filthy lucre to help sweep 
the cobwebs. She is one of the fluft'y-ruflle kind, with a gift of gab, who 
can throw a No. 4 around the board like a card stacker. 

One of the Profs, and me had a fracas on the knowledge factory ques- 
tion, and reckon yours truly is due for a hanging upon the Christmas tree. 
I am going to get another introduction to Mother Earth in company with 
the oval, so guess I will drag. My best to all from 

Your loving son, 

"C. E C. T."

/j Lj X l'"cbruary i; 
I lUJ accepting foi 
Viy Morrill Act. 

17th, 1804, the Assembly of Maryland, passed an act 
for the State of Maryland, the provisions of the first 
or the Land Grant Act of 1862. This bill provided 
that for each Representative or Senator, 30,000 acres of the public 
domain, should be aiiprojjriated to each State, which would maintain at least 
one where the leading; object shall be, without excluding other scien- 
tific and ''classical studies and including military tactics, to teach such 
branches of learning as are related to Agriculture and the Mechanical Arts. 
This land, amounting to 209,920 acres was sold, and the proceeds invested 
in bonds became an undiminishable fund for the maintenance of the college. 

The I'.attalion was organized March nth, 1868. By laws_ it is provided 
that three hours per week be the minimum time devoted to military science. 
Any increase in this period of in.struction is left to the discretion of the in- 
stitution. At first only one half hour per day was devoted to drill, but this 
was gradually increased until now a full hour is consumed in drill. .\s a 
supplement to this the Commandant delivers two lectures per week upon 
those phases of military science that owing to the limited time assigned to 
the militarv course cannot be covered during the drill period. 

The Hattalion now consists of three four squad companies, and a Cadet 
Band of 17 pieces. The men in the companies are equipped with the Krag- 
Jorgasen rifle, knife bayonet, and cartridge box. The men are drilled in the 
school of the .soldier, .squad, company and battalion. They are taught the 
normal battle formation and then the principles so learned are put to a prac- 
tical test in the attack of a given point. They are instructed in the means 
of protecting a column on the march by throwing out an advance guard and 
a rear guard, and practical use is made of this in the practise marches. 
The protection of a body of troops in camp is illustrated by throwing out a 
line of out-posts about the camp. Owing to the small number of men Cos- 
sack posts are employed consisting of three privates and one non-commis- 
sioned officer. The duties of patrols are taught by lectures and by j^ractical 
patroling of the adjacent country. Guard duties, its purposes and the man- 
ner in which it is affected are taught by practical exercises upon the drill 
ground. Besides these field duties the men are taught how to shoot by posi- 
tion and aiming drills, tripod exercises and target practice with the new 
gallery rifle. The men are instructed how to execute the ceremonies of 
guard-mounting, battalion parade, battalion inspection, dress ])arade, escort 
to the colors and retreat ])ara(le. .\t all times the men are required to keep 
their uniforms neat and clean as befits a soldier; their equipment must be in 
first-class shape for inspection at any time and their rooms must be clean 
and arranged in a manner prescribed by a general order covering this point. 
The men in the barracks are under the discipline of their cadet officers and 
must conform to the rules which are conducive of the greatest quiet, the 
least interference with scholastic duties, cleanliness of the barracks and the 





knowledge of where each man is at a given time. To insure promptness in 
reaching class without confusion all sections are formed at each period upon 
the parade ground by appointed section marchers, absentees reported to the 
Officer of the Day and the sections marched to their respective class-rooms. 

The band was organized in October, 1908, under the direction of Ser- 
geant Smith, the college bugler, who is an expert musician and bandleader. 
The band consists of four cornets, two clarionets, three alto horns, a bari- 
tone horn, two bass horns, three trombones, a snare and bass drum and cym- 
bals. The band has made remarkable progress and plays at all ceremonies. 
Practice is held each day when its presence is not required with the battalion. 
The band offers, to those who desire, a most excellent chance to learn to play 
any instrument, thus really supplementing the college course. Besides the 
band there is field music consisting of the bugle corps of seven bugles. 

The day is so divided that each minute of a man's time is provided for, 
either by duties or recreation. The following bugle calls needs some ex- 
planation. Five minutes after each call for any formation, cadets must be 
in their proper places in ranks and at attention and prepared to execute the 
duty for which the call was sounded. At reveille the men appear under 
arms and execute such drills as bayonet exercises, rifle drill or any otlier 
exercise of a setting up character. The morning inspection is meant as a 
room inspection. The beds must be made up in a specified manner and the 
rooms must be swept and dusted. Sick call is for those who wish to report 
to the hospital for treatment. The afternoon guard mouting is participated 
in by the regular detail and those men having punishment tours to walk. 
From four until six o'clock is recreation period. After supper retreat or 
dress ])arade is held and at seven-thirty call to quarters is sounded. From 
then on all cadets are required to be in their quarters and be awake until 
10.15 when tatto is sounded. Lights go out at 11.00 P. M., after which tlic 
officer of the hall makes an inspection and reports to the O. D. 

The highest ranking man is the Major who is responsible, under the su- 
pervision of the Commandant, for the instruction and discipline of the bat- 
talion. Fach company has a captain wiio is responsible for the instruction 
and discipline of the company in the barracks as well as upon the drill 
grounds. He is aided by three lieutenants, five sergeants, four corporals. A 
lieutenant is in charge of each hall as a sub-division inspector. The Major 
is assisted by a staff consisting of an Adjutant and a Quartermaster. The 
keeping of the roster from which the daily detail is made devolves upon the 
Adjutant and his clerk the sergeant-major. The Quartermaster is in charge 
of all military supplies assisted by the Quartermaster sergeant. I'roni among 
the commissioned officers one is detailed each day from noon of that day 
till noon of next day, to serve as Officer of the Day. He is the highest rank- 
ing officer except the Commandant, and in the latter's absence represents 
him. He is responsible for the maintenance of order, the protection of col- 
lege property and the promptness with which the cadets perform their du- 
ties. Moreover, he is charged with the execution of certain special orders 



given him each day by the Commandant when he goes on duty. The duties 
are numerous and the responsibility correspondingly great. 

The primary object of military in the land grant colleges is to provide 
men who will be able to officer volunteer troops in time of emergency, but 
the training in itself is a valuable asset to the individual in his education. It 
teaches him as a private, obedience, promptness, neatness, accuracy in de- 
tails and attention to duty. As he is promoted he gradually learns to assume 
more and more responsibility and learns to use his own judgment. The 
command of the cadets, his inferiors in rank, teaches him to handle men, 
an asset that is of great importance to him in after life. 

To the graduate many possibilities unfold themselves. The regular, the 
volunteer, the Philippine Constabulary, Navy and R. C. service. Those 
schools having secured a rating among the first-class military institutions 
are privileged to select three men for commissions in the regular armv with- 
out examination. The army offers to any man an assured position with the 
chance of advancement in rank. Those who have had military training are 
useful to their country in time of emergency and make excellent officers. 
Such men are sure to advance. Positions in the Constabulary are open to 
any graduate of this institution upon the recommendation of the Comman- 
dant. It oft'ers to a man an opportunity to see some of the world and to take 
advantage of those opportunities that are open especially to technical men 
in foreign countries, while military training does not fit a man for the tech- 
nical side of naval life, still it helps him in a general way. We have gradu- 
ates from this college in both the Xavy and Revenue Cutter service as well 
as in the land forces.

/'TJy'HI'- ^\t-\v Mercer Literary Society was first organized in 1861 by Dr. 
II Wm. Mercer, who not only exerted his efforts on the society, but 

\l \y spent a large sum of money to build it to the high place it now oc- 
cupies. However, after the death of its illustrious founder, enthu- 
siasm began to wane and in 1889 it ceased to exist. 

It was re-organized in 1892 by Prof. F. B. Bomberger, who deserves 
much credit for its success. F"rom that time the society has develo]:)ed until 
now it is one of the largest societies in the college. At the present time there 
are about eighty members in the society, nearly all of whom take an active 
interest in the work. \'ery few places afford better opportunities for young 
men than this society. 

The meetings, which are held every I'riday evening, afford to every 
member the opportunity of debating and otherwise displaying his literary 
talents. By doing this he is able to express his thoughts c|uickly, freely and 
correctly. It is a well-known fact that no matter what walk of life a man 
may enter the experience gained in public speaking in such a society is in- 
dispensable to him. 

The success of our society has been attained through the earnest efforts 
of its members. Its ideals are high and its work enthusiastic, and we trust 
that the New Mercer Literary Society will continue to flourish and its niem- 
ershi]i grow larger and larger each succeeding vear.

(^g( N 1894, Professor R. H. Alvey, of this Institution, noting the success 
J I which was being attained by the New Alercer Society, conceived the 
fc.ll idea of exciting competition in debate and oratory among the stu- 
dents of the institution, and in accordance with his thoughts and 
plans organized the Morrill Literary Society. 

Since its inauguration at the college, and owing to the sub-divi- 
sion of the student body in the two societies, it has accomplished the end 
which Prof. Alvey had in mind, and in this manner has advanced debate and 
oratory to a greater degree than has ever been known heretofore. During the 
past year the Morrill Society has been well rewarded for its efforts, having 
won several of the inter-society debates, and oratorical contests. The attend- 
ance has filled the presiding officers with satisfaction, and from present indi- 
cations this will be the most successful year it has ever had. 

This coni])etition between societies is of great value to the student and 
he will take more interest in his debate or oratorical contest if he knows that 
he has to uphold his Society's honor. 

This power of debate is of great use to all persons and is not confined 
to one profession. The man who is able to speak properlv and effectively is 
the man who gets there in this world, and to be able to teach this is the aim 
of the Morrill Literarv Society.

That clutches the Heart, the Throat, the Eye. 

The Land of the Meadow, the Tree, the Hill, 

The Mountain steep, the splashing Rill. 

Heaven and Hell, the Earth, and the Sky 

Are the places all where the Dead Dreams lie. 

'Tis the thought of the Land where the Dead Dreams lie. 

That holds us silent, or brings the sigh. 

Days of Past .Joy and Sorrow fraught — 

We live them o'er, the Days of Naught. 

The Days of Love that swift flew by, — 

All gone to the Land where the Dead Dreams lie. 

'Tis the thought of the Land where the Dead Dreams lie. 

That clutches the Heart, the Throat, the Eye. 

How often we think of the Days now gone, — 

Ambitions shattered, loved hearts torn. 

To bring them back — nay do not try, — 

They've gone fore'er where the Dead Dreams lie.

/'^^HE South has long been noted for its high-minded chivalrous gentle- 

/'l men, and Maryland standing as the "Gateway to the South" has ever 

VIL been far-famed for the gentility and true hospitality of its men and 

not less for the grace and beauty of its women. In our busy college 

career the binding link, initiating us into this grace and chivalry of 

the fair Southland, bringing to us a solace in our isolation, and filling our 

daily routine with dreams and fancies, is our Rossbourg Club and its dances. 

The true gentleman, refined and gallant, becomes so only through social 

intercourse with the noblest of God"s creations — women. Our Rossbourg 

admirably fills this need in our college life, transforming our inherent nature 

into refinement and grace of manner, traming us to take part in ana 

to uphold the high social standard of fair ^Maryland. 

The goddesses of the ancients were the treasures of their minions ; wor- 
shipped for their virtues and lavished with an adoration far in excess of that 
given to the sterner gods, and as the virgins were to their followers so to 
our college is our treasure — the M. A. C. girl — the goddess of our social 

Long will linger in our memories the pleasures of the moments of bliss 
when we have trod upon air in the whirl of the dance to the inspiring strains 
of the music or when perchance we sat in some secluded corner, oblivious 
of all the world save the sparkling eyes and fair face of one fair M. A. C. 
girl ; or anon we strolled on the pleasant walks under the starry heavens and 
enraptured and thrilled were we in those moments of ecstasy ; — forgotten 
were our toils and lessons, and for us of all the terrestrial or heavenly bodies, 
there existed but one — the fair maid by our side. Never can such memories 
be effaced from our hearts, but for all time will remain with us. 

"Like a vase in which roses have once been distilled. 
You may break — you may shatter the vase, if you will. 
But the scent of the roses will remain there still 1" 

Our dances this year have all been an inspiration to us, lifting us from 
the path of dull care and weariness into the highway of romance — the fairy 
land of love and romance, 

"Lifting the soul from the common clod 
To a purer air and a broader view." 

And now at the close of this year of rush and turmoil, of work and 
pleasure, we, of the Rossbourg extend our appreciation to all who have aided 
in making our dances a success ; to those of our members who have devoted 
themselves to decorating and arranging even the minutest detail of our 
functions ; to those of our friends who have lent their presence to further 
our enjoyment, and finally to those dear ones who have been the life and 
light of each occasion — the M. A. C. girls. From one and all we part with 
regrets, but for each we hold in our hearts — "memories dear."

^ "NrOXri our student organizations the Y. M. C. A. has. during the 
TA past year, associated itself closely with all student interests and es- 
^^ \ jx-ciallv with the interests of the new students, h'ounded upon 
V_ broad principles and standing alone in relation to the spiritual wel- 

fare of the students it occupies a ])osition of greatest importance. The great 
issues that face college men in these days are not such as can easily be set 
aside; every man knows the deep seriousness of his own life problems. 

The necessities of athletics, of literary societies, of oratorical contests, 
of social clubs and the social man are recognized and encouraged by our asso- 
ciation, but in all these interests it stands for earnest, honest effort and staunch 
manliness, making its motto — "Whatsoever thy hand find to do, do it with 
all thy might and soul." The ubject of nur association, as stated by the stu- 
dent organizers in 1900 is, — "to deepen the spiritual life of its members and 
promote social and Christian fellowship among them." For this end does 
the association strive and thus endeavor to make the corps of cadets a body 
of true men and gentlemen. 

.According to an agreeable custom which has grown up in the past years 
there was held soon after the opening of the school in September, a recep- 
tion by our Y. M. C. A. tendered to the faculty and their wives anil to the 
students, old and new. This occasion which is now looked on as an important 
social function afforded the opportunity for the instructors and their wives 
to become acquainted with the new students and at the same time to renew 
acquaintances with members of past years. With this reception formally 
commenced the active work of the association. An important feature of this 
work is the Sunday evening meetings, which are held every Sunday night 
in the chapel, and in which much interest and help is brought to the members 
by both leaders in the college work and speakers obtained for the occasion. 

During the past year Mr. Nuttle, the Assistant International Secretary, 
has manifested much interest in our association and has been of vast help in 
aiding our leaders in creating an "esprit de corps" in the student body and in 
establishing our Bible class work. Under the management of the President, 
with the assistance of Prof. Bomberger, this work has been carried through 
the greater part of the year. Early in the scholastic year Prof. Bomberger 
associated himself with the college Y. M. C. A. work, devoting himself to the 
training of the leaders of our Bible classes. He thus developed a corps of 
seven teachers, having in charge as many classes, and with this nucleus we 


hope to develop in the coming year a strong body of leaders in Bible study 
and Bible work. 

One of Jesus" most emphatic warnings was against the peril of begin- 
ning and not continuing. He knew the heart of man. There were men in 
his day, as there is in ours, who set out enthusiastically, but soon fell away. 
.Some of them were men, the soil of whose souls were shallow, so that seed 
sprang up quickly, but was as quickly scorched by the sun. What Jesus 
wanted was men of stability, of solid steadfastness. The great appeal of 
C'hristianUy is for iron and immovable righteousness. "Stand fast, acquit 
vmirself like men. Be strong. Paul accounted himself not to have accom- 
plished much. Init he did one thing — he kept right on. .And this is the spirit 
which our \'. .M. C. A. is endeavoring to build up in its leaders h)' the Bible 
class work and through them to reach the entire school. 

During the year several gatherings of note were attended by represen- 
tatives from our association. Among the speakers thus bringing the message 
to us were Gypsy Smith and Fred B. Smith. From these gatherings as 
well as from the Tri-State Convention at Westminster our representatives 
came back with words of inspiration for us in "Pilgrimage to manhood." 

According to the jilan established last year the officers for the coming- 
year were elected at the close of the winter term and to them, under the guid- 
ance of the retiring officers, was entrusted the wurk during the closing period 
of the year. In their hands rested the work during the work for the coming 
year, and they earnestly beseech for their fellow students and friends the in- 
\ocation — "the Lonl watch between me and thee while we are absent, one 
ircm another."

/iQ WIXG to the loss of the meiiibers of 
^^ our last year's team by graduation it 
became evident on our return to col- 
lege this year that practically a new team 
would have to be organized. Men were 
soon selected, but we found that, although 
we had a plucky team and one with plenty 
of spirit, we were too light for the ma- 
jority of our opponents. However, though 
we lost more games than we usually do and 
were handicapped in size, the team toward 
the latter part of the season played so well 
that we have great prospects for the next 
season. In the Ciallaudet and Johns Hop- 
kins games our team did its best work. It 
was greatly handicapped by not having a 
proper coach. We lost three men by gradua- 
tion this year, but as there is a good supply 
of substitutes we will not be wanting for 
material when college opens in the h'all. 
The following men received the football

A LTHOUGH we lost a number

graduation and otherwise, a 
number of good men turned out for 
practice this Spring. We were 
greatly handicapped by not having 
a jMtcher, but Alayer and Grason 
who are alternating in the box 
have done some fine work. Jar- 
rell, who did such good work in 
past years, until his arm was hurt, 
seems to be coming back to his old 
form and if he does we need have 
no fear. Our highest ambition is 
to defeat St. John's College who 
defeated us last year in a close and

"^TTRACK team work for Ihc season 
^^ of 1908 and 1909 has been with- 
out doubt the most successful in 
the history of the college. From the 
oi)ening of the tirst indoor meet to the 
close of the outdoor season, our men 
have decisive victories in the individual 
events, and our Relay Team has low- 
ered the flaming colors of twenty or 
more institutions whose c|uartets have 
ojiposed them. Early in the season 
little attention was paid to the four 
sturdy lads, hut after their first vic- 
tory over Brown, and Baltimore City 
College, the college began to take no- 
tice, and after defeating Villa Nova 
in the second meet, the enthusiasm of 
the students was unleashed. 
Then came the greatest of all victories, St. John's, our noted rival, was 
engaged in a special race with our (|uartet. Never will that night l)e for- 
gotten. I'Vom the crack of the pistol to the end of the contest, M. A. C. had 
things her own way. Munson, running first for the M. A. C, cleared a good 
ten yards in front of his man ; Tauszky added five more ; and Coster and 
Adams, running third and fourth respectively, lengthened the distance by ten 
more. .Many were the hearts, which heat sluggishly, jumped for joy that 
night — for M. .\. C. had won. 

Since that time the team has continued to add to the collection of cups, 
medals, and various trophies. Now the season is near to its end and every 
M. .\. C:esar joins me in the ])raise of those four men, who have made a 
name for the college in Track .\thletics.

^^tars of 1909. 

(^ii T is our sincere hope that we have furnished our quota of men to rep- 


resent our tlear old college on the diamond, gridiron, and cinder 
track. Although their number has been small, we feel confident 
that thev have ])ut forth their best efforts in whatsoever field they 
have entered. We wish to extend to them our deepest appreciation of their 
enthusiastic and constant etTorts that have produced for them records en- 
titling them to a place among our "Stars." 

Ernest N. Corv. 

Corv came to us in the Fall of lyo/. and soon earned a place in the foot- 
ball line-up. His good playing (|ualities were soon recognized and he was 
elected Captain of our igo8 football team. It is largely due to his strenu- 
ous efforts that we were enabled to put up the showing we did. His cool 
head and good ground-gaining (|ualities have lielpe<l in many cases to pull 
us out of very bad holes. 

Ernest has also done very good work on the track. He is a good long 
distance man and was a member of our relay team in 1908. It is with a great 
feeling of regret that we see him leave us in June, for we are parting with 
a very valuable man. 

H. M. Coster. 

"Cassio" first displayed his athletic abilities when he started work upoi"i 
the cinder path in the Fall of 1908. His excellent work entitled him to a 
place upon the relay team of that year. As Manager antl member of the team 
of 1909, Coster's work deserves especial credit. His splendid ground-cov- 
ering abilities have earned for him a good name among our track men. 

This year's team has won every race in which it has entered and has 
brought back medals from every indoor meet in Baltimore and \\^ashington, 
and much of the success has been gained through his eft'orts. 

Coster has also done good work upon our diamond. He has been an 
old standby to our second team and as its Cajitain in 1909 we are sure his 
v.-ork will be a success. 


T. D. Jarrell. 

'~ "With the mighty south paw Jarrell in the box, M. A. C. iiclhI have no 
fear of any comers" is the way the Washington papers express their opin- 
ions of our veteran of the diamond. Jarrell came to us in our Freshman 
year and soon made for himself a position u]50n the baseball team as a twirler 
of the (lusty sphere. His wonderful "ins" and "outs" "drops" and "spit- 
balls" bellied to make our team a victorious one and to win for us the cham- 
pionship of the Maryland Colleges. We regret exceedingly that an accident 
to his arm has forced him to vacate the pitcher box for a place in right field. 
Here he has been sure death to jjop flies and ambitious home run drives. 

"Rear" has worn but little paint otif the bench and has proved to all that 
on the diamond as elsewhere, "A man's a man." 

C. F. AI.WER. 

No one of us can tell when "Micky" first appeared among us, but even 
the oldest of us have strong recollections of his knocking "chunks" out of 
the atmosphere with a "Louisville Slugger" as far back as 1905. 

His old post is in the field and he can be relied on to gather in anything 
this side of the fence. At the bat he can also be relied on for a good safe hit. 
He has done considerable work in the box this year and has won many hard 
fought games. 

"Micky" was also a regular member of our second football team and 
has, no doubt, sacrificed one or more eyes, a nose, and several teeth to those 
mighty warriors the first team. 

C. E. C. T.M'SZKY. 

With Tauszky as \'arsity end we need have no fears when the cry goes 
u|) "Hold them Maryland." As an all around player Tauszky is as good as 
tlie\- come. He is always either in the scrimmage or tearing up the sod after 
punts, Ilis wiirk at end of two years is worthy of special mention. 

"Taus" has also done fine work on our track team. He was a member 
of the relay team in 1908 and 1909. His best work is at the short distances 
and he has won many medals for the fifty and one Innulred yard dashes. He 
has also done some baseball wnrk ami his record as a whole is hard to beat.

God bless thee noble Calculus 
"Doc Tolly's" simple art, 

I boned thee when a Junior 
With the fulness of my heart. 

I started with a function f(X) 
A thing that really is 

Dependent on another 
For the very life it lives. 


Next, came rates of varying and constant magnitudes. 
Then dy's and dx's, that seem always to intrude 

.lust where you don't want them, and you never can descry 
Their reason or their wherefor or their why. 

Now a constant coefficent to differentiate 
Then dy on dx whicli equals tangent 

A fact that trouble, troubles us. 

Good old (?) "Tolly" can't see why. 

We differentiate a square. 

Then we try square root; 
Here we have a "ijrob" or two 
With circles looping loops. 

Here they are with circles 

And a"^sx^ + y-=a- 
Some merry little jest ( ?) 


An inflection waves majestic past 

I think it is convexion 
Here's a letter S by gad! 

It looks like an inflection. 

Maxima's and minima's 

And Taylor's theorems 
Next Napier, the nut butts in 

And Maclauren's "also ran." 

Now we'll try a curve or two 

With great long asympotes, 
Then we'll call old Diodes 

With his cissoids for a joke. 

Here we have a cardiod 

For every aching heart 
And a four cusped hypocyloid 

To end our differential art.

"There's good even in tlie worst ot us." 

/'T'JY Hr^ pinto was obviously lame, and it's rider as if realizing the futility 
|1 of further escape, wheeled his mount, and remained a blot against 

^iJ/ the white blaze of sunlight and sand. Listlessly he watched the 
approach of his pursuer, his eyes two threads of black. Langworth 
felt heart swell with sudden elation as he pulled up without range of accurate 
pistol shot, and inipale<I the other's angora "chapps" on the sights of his 

".\11 up Darwenda," he called, the slight nasal twang of the East suc- 
cessfully bridging the distance. "rnl)uckle your l)elt and throw it on the 
ground, Ouick." The half breed obeyed without undue haste or tardiness. 
Langworth approached wearily, quickly sheathing his rifle and drawing his 
Colt. Ten feet awav he halted, cniisidering. It was something to corner 
the worst renegade in .Vrizona.but he felt it would infinitely more than some- 
thing, to bring the prisoner, or himself, to the zone of law and order, h'rom 
his heart there welled the covvar<lly wish that he had not eagerly outstripped 
the members of the "IJar Circle." They were accustomed to deal with such 
incidents. Alone he had relentlessly followed the trail of the cattle thief 
uito the heart of the "liad Lands." Me was two days from the land of civili- 
zation, his trail lost. For two days, and worse, two nights, he would be alone 
with this man, who was as dangerous as any rattler or "(jila Monster" that 
fried its belly in the sun — in the blazing, and, hell of sand. Langworth 
had imagination, as well as other cjualities. It would be much easier to mete 
out justice here and now — to shoot his uian through the stomach. It would 
be the fulfillment of his missiou, and vet he hesitated. 

Tradition, both East and West was against killing an unarmed man. 
While he hesitated the half breed spoke. "Thinkin' ah shootin' me?" he 
drawled (|uietly. "I ihnught it was uervy of yuh tub follow me in huah-alone, 
but I see now, it was only yuhr vanity. Yuh wanted to be first at th' kill. 
Xow yuhr'e afraid of me. I see it in vuhr eyes. Scared of an luiarmecl man. 
Sho' ! — and he spat upon the sand. 

The red blood mingled with the tan on Langworth's cheek, ".\fraid 
hell." he snajjped. ".\ white man is never afraid of vour breed. The I'.ast 
can always lick the West. You're coming with me to hang on the end of a 


rope." Darwenda shoke his head. "Yuh talk right, Init yuhr'e nerve's not 
equal tuh it. Think of th' long days and nights, — yuh an' me, all alone. An' 
yuh can't rope me, for yuh dass'nt lay down yuh're gun. Vuh knows that." 
His black eyes were dancing satirically. 

"Better shoot, an' get it off'n yuhr mind, sonny." Langworth winced at 
the word "sonny." He did not like to be called coward, lint still there was 
his imagination, — his mission. And no one windd know that the "rustler" 
had not fallen in fair fight. So he considered, the other's black eyes upon 
him. h'rom his ]iocket the "killer" listlessly produced cigarette papers and a 
soiled bag of "Durham;" deftly with cme hand he rolled his smoke, then 
searched for a match. Every pocket proved barren, and at length he unbut- 
toned his vest. Langworth was eyeing him absently, his mind still engros.'v^d 
with the problem. Then suddenly came a blinding flare of smoke, and a 
crash, and Langworth's gun dri}pped from his nerveless fingers. He gazed 
stupidly at his numbed hand, and then to the unwavering eye of the half 
breed's revolver. And he was silent. "Down Texas way," explained Dar- 
wenda, "th' boys have uh wan uli jjacking hardware under their arms. They 
'low it's quicker on th' draw. .\h' tlon't savy, bein' used tuh ih' hip gun, 
hut 1 just tote th' other tuh show yu'as ah've no hard feelin's. Ah reckoned 
vuh wasn't im tuh th' game, so after drawin' yuh in huah, awav from th' 
boys, .\h fixed up this little side show. .Mali hawss ain't lame, an' could have 
sashayed clear tuh the Mexican border. Reckon yuhr mighty glad I took 
the res])onsibility off'n _\idi'rd sh<>ul<kTs, eh?" Langworth sat motionless, 
hands skyward, as the half breed rangetl beside him, and unbuckled his gun- 
belt, — running a grimy paw with expert ease over every hiding ])lace where 
a weapon might be concealed. ".Sho'," he said, "yuh should be lumtin' but- 
terflies, not men. And yuh're running for sherifl:'. Sho'." "\\'hy don't you 
kill me?" asked Langworth fiercely, "Lm not afraid of \iiu." "That's what 
all th' white men say." replied the "killer." "That's what I want tuh find 
out. There's an arroyo over there where we can have uh little talk. .\h've 
got many things tuh say tuh yuh." He leisurely buckled his discarded cart- 
ridge belt about his slender hips, and hung Langsworth's on the saddle 
horse. Then from his saddle he ])roduced a water bottle and a slim willow 
wand, two feet in length perhaps, which terminated in a crotch. Then from 
his lariat he cut several thin strips of rawhide. Once or twice as his back 
was momentarily turned, Langworth's muscles grew tense as he contem- 
plated a sudden spring. But reason always stayed him. It meant certain 


death. Still profligate of his back, the "killer" led the way to the arroyo, 
where in the scanty shade afforded, he picketed the horses. Motioning Lang- 
worth to sit opposite, Darwenda lay down ; his back against the wall. His 
eyes were fixed and bright with the intensity of purpose, and Longworth 
realized that death was near to him. 

"I suppose 'yuh wondered why Ah' rustled yuhr poor measly scrub 
cattle, didn t yuh? Do yuh understand now that it wasn't for the sake uh 
getting the cows, but just what yuh did today — to get yuh tub foller me 
huah — alone?" 

Longworth swallowed. "I understand now ; I suppose you hated me for 
running for sheriff. It's only natural for criminals to hate the law. Or per- 
haps there was another reason." 

"Running for sheriff, Sho !" Darwenda smiled, "Swore tuli get me, 
just tub make yuhself solid with the county? Or was there another reason?" 
"What other reason?" asked Langworth coldly. "I had to do my duty, 
that is all." 

"Yuh ain't elected sheriff' yet," suggested the rustler drily. "Was it for 
th' sake of th' other reason; don't yuh know who I am?" 
Langworth's eyes opened wide. 

"I only know what you are," he said contemptuously. 
"So yuh hunted me because it was your duty? Was it tub make yuh'sef 
solid with th' county?" 

"Yes," said Langworth, eyeing him. 

"I-Iell," exclaimed the mongrel: why didn't yuh buy yuhr votes like yuhr 
father did ?" 

"You scoundrel," exclaimed Langworth hotly, "you leave a dead man's 
name alone. You may kill me, but you'll not dirty his memory." 

Darwenda eyed him curiously, a hint of approbation in his sombre gaze. 
"Though Ah'm half white, I can't get th' white man's view point, nohow," 
he said at last. 

"It's a shame you've any white man's blood," said Langworth contempt- 
uously. "W'hat you do possess must necessarily be the lowest, rottenest, 

"It sure is." agreed the killer (|uietly. "But why necessarily?" His 
eyes were two danger signals, but the other was not looking into them. 

"Because," replied Langworth scathingly, "Your mother 

"Don't say it. Ah' killed a man for that." The Easterner looked up 
shar])Iy at the other's tone, and beneath his tan, his face whitened. Then 


there was silence. At length Darwenda spoke — dispassionately at first as he 
rolled another cigarette. 

"Mah mother was Mornin" Star, the daughter of uh Pawnee Chief. 
Ah'm uh waddv. uh killer, uh mongrell, accordin' tuh yuhr white man's law. 

"That," he suddenly struck his chest in fury, "comes from my th' white 
blood, not from my mother's people, understand. That comes from th' dirty 
white blood as yuh say. That comes from yuhr father. I'm a wady, uh 
killer, uh mongrel, because yuhr father was uh scovmdrel." 

Without a word Langworth hurled himself at the other's throat, but 
Darwenda met him halfway, back heeled him, and threw him heavily to the 

"Sit tliere." he said harshly. Langworth slowly crossed his legs, the 
slaver of rage still white upon his lips. 

"You cur — you coward," he said panting. "Leave a dead man's name 
alone, and fight me like a man." 

Again a flicker of approbation glimmered in the renegade's eyes. "It 
yuh think .\h lie, yuh can look up th' record in th' Rosebud Agency. But Ah 
see in yuhr eyes that yuh know Ah'm not lyiii'." 

"Go on," said Langworth, white faced. 

"I'm goin'," replied Darwenda equably. "Yuhr father come out huah 
in th' spring of '78. He was surveyin' for th' U. 1*. It's no matter how he 
met mah mother. She was only sixteen, an' th' prettiest girl on th' range. 
Th' white man thinks that only th' white women knows th' meanin' uh love, 
honor an' purity. Yuhr father married my mother accordin' luh the laws 
uh her people. With him there wasn't any real love. .\t that time yuh were 
only two years old. But he never said he had uh wife an' child. Th' Indian 
woman is morally clean, yuh know that, if yuh know anythin'. Yuh cant 
hnv her. Yuhr father married Mornin' Star, because that was th' only way he 
could get her. He didn't intend that th' laws uh her people should bind him. 
uh him it was bigamy — marryin' uh savage accordin' tuh his laws. So one 
day he left Mornin' Star. He wrote tuh her sayin' she was no wife accordin' 
to th' white man's law an' had no claim on him. I was uh year old then. 
Th' average white women would have jailed him, an' demanded support for 
th' child. But Mornin' Star went into the hills alone an' killed herself. 
When yuh can't live with honor, it's best to die with honor. Mah first killin' 
was when uh 'puncher' called mah mother uh dog. .\t that time uh was 
canipin' on yulir father's trail. He thought uh wanted money, an' tried tuh 
buv me off. lie had become uh cap'talist, rohhin' people uh their money 


in uh lawful way. High finance. I guess yuh call it. I had to live among 
th' rattlers, an' rustle cows for grub an' money. But still uh was waitin' tuh 
scjuare Mornin' Star. It never came, for yuhr father — my father — died uh 
heart failure. Then yuh came West, an' uh rcmemberetl what they said at 
th' mission 'bout th' sins of th' father. .\n' now yuhr in my hands. What 
can \uh say ?" Langworth remamed silent. Scenes of past years rushed to 
his inward eyes; his father's method of amassing wealth; his mother in the 
East awaiting his success, and now — death staring him in the face. At last 
he spoke. 

"I know this story of yours: so does my mother. Aly father told it on 

his deathbed. I •" 

"Then ah was right," snapped Darwenda ; yuh know who ah was." 
"I did not. My father swore the child was dead. But how do I know 
your claim to be legitimate?" 

".\h'm makin' no claim," snarled the killer, but if yuh mean how do 
yuh know ah'm not lyin', ah've got th' papers huah," and he tapped his coat 
pocket. "Will yuh read them?" 

"No," said Langworth slowly, "I take your word. If my death can 
atone for the wrong my father committed, I am ready to die" There was a 
short silence, and then Langworth continued slowlv. "God, man, haven't 1 
siift'ered for him; hasn't my mother? I know that she would, if possiljle, 
gladly exchange jjlaces with Morning Star. There are things v\'orse than 
death. "\'ou are my half-brother, and you can understand. Everv cent 
which was not honestly earned has been returned. My mother flid this. 
She has made up for all my father's past deeds — except this one. Let her 
do this. I am n(.)t ])lea(ling for my own poor existence — my life — but give 
my mother a chance. Think of her. I am her onlv son. If I go — I, who 
am her sole support — what will become of her. She is a good woman, and 
if she can atf)ne farther she will gladly do so. You are my half-brother ; halt 
of what I own is yours. Come back with me. She will welcome \ou. 

Come ," and he stretched out his arms to Darwenda. DeepK- he ])on- 

dered over the question, and after a long ])ause drawled out. 

".\li can't go back with yuh. She thinks me dead — better so. Ah 
would be a livin' memory. .She has suffered enough. .Mi'm not of yuhr 
people, ^'uhr mother is ah good woman. She has suffered enough. She 
has given yuh her blood. It's her Iflood, not th' Langworth, that has given 
yuh the right to live. 1 trapped you huah tuh give vuh the snake torture — 
like th" "Paches give their enemies. Uoii't guess yuh know what that means 


Well, yuh take yuhr man down, an' thc-n yuh get a yonng rattler, cut a slit in 
Ills neck and pass through it ah piece ah rawhide. By th' thong an' willow 
wand huah, yuh stake it just outside of reach of your man. It strikes, but 
can't get home. Then yuh let water drop (mi th' rawhide — drop by drop — an' 
it stretches, an' th' snake strikes nearer each time. Men go crazy for th' 
fangs strike in th' face. It's a bad medicine, but as I said before yuhr 
mother has given yuh th' right tub live, so go an' bless her for savin' yuh 
from th' punishment uh hell. — tjood-bye." 

Slowly, trembling Langworth arose and walked to his horse. As he 
passed beyond the bend in the arrayo a shot rang forth. Quickly he retraced 
his steps, and there beside the rock sat Darwenda, a thin stream of blood 
trickling down his face, a grim smile upon his lips. His Colt had done its 
work well — and he was now with Morning Star in the land beyond the 
Great Divide.

The .Met'ting- of the lioard on Academic Duties at the lieginning of the 

Scholastic Year. 

itT ^^ ollege President rapped the mahogany table with his ivory gavel, 
IJ L thereby calling the university Senate to order. 

^**^ "Gentlenien," he began, "the first semester-ah-begins tomorrow. 

We have met to ascertain-ali-whether everything is in readiness and- 
nh order for the opening of the ah-scholastic year. Professor Faddens, is 
}-our-ah-division of the work completed?" 

"Yes. Doc: she's all ready an' up to snulT. At first the old boy said he 
couldn't get the addition done, but I sez to him: AVhat you gettin' th" five 
tousan' simoleons fer if it ain't to get them bleachers done on time?' He got 
a wiggle on him ; so they're all ready O. K." 

"That's good. Professor Kagger, have you attended to your part of 
the-ah-necessary arrangements ?" 

"Sure thing, Dickey; the training quarters have all been cleaned out, 
and we're ready for the boys tomorrow." 

"Well Professor Swatson. how is the work you are supervising pro- 

"Fine, Prexy, fine. I been in this burg a couple years, but as sure as I 
know a spit ball from an outcurve, I ain't never seen th' diamond in better 

"1 am glad to hear you report such-ah-progress, gentlemen. Professor 
Murphy, have you offered that free scholarship to Klarkson, the Arkansas 
giant ?" 

"\'ep. Doc. lie reports on the gridiron tomorrow." 

"Professor ]\lagoggle, I presume the-ah-construction work you are ah- 
supervising is progressing nicely?" 

".Straight of¥ th' reel, Doc. Th' gyms all there with th' new ajiparatus, 
and ready for th' boys." 

'A\ ell, Mr. .Secretary, I suppose that you have attended to your duties?"

J\ ^tttlc ^oitscusc ^o6i aith ®lpiu 

They sat u])on the garden g'ate. 
The yoiithlet and the maid. 

"The stars above are not so bright 
As you. my dear, he said." 

She ht'ted up her tiny hand. 

Toward Luna's golden hght, 
"The moon above is not so full 

As you, my dear," tonight. 


The young chap whispered soft and low 
"Dear. I never loved another." 

Said the maid. "I didn't know 
That Ananias had a brother." 



Some lovers when proposing. 
Swear by rivers deep and wide. 
And others swear by the stars above. 
Or the ocean's heaving tide. 
But when I go a-wooing 
ril swear better than them all — 
I'll tell her that I love her 'till 
Old Niagara Falls. 


The compensation still is called. 
To ease each earthly grief that waits. 
The forests and the fields grow bald. 
Hut football hair luxuriates. 



The whistle sounds — the jjame's bei^un, 
He runs back twenty — chapter one. 
She's on the side hues — goals in view 
He scores a touchdown — chapter two. 
The scene is changed to moon and tree 
They're met and — well, that's chapter three 
Some bells peal forth — I'l say no more. 
For 'tis the end — this chapter tour. 

She follows fads that are the rage 

^^'hich nothing can abate, 
But when its time to give her age 

She's never up to date. 



She wanted to change a dance on her programme, and asked him for his 
stylographic pen. 

"Oh, it writes beautifully. I declare I'm in love with this pen." 
"And Em in love with the holder," he casually replied. 
She saw the point. 

The stranger was speaking to the abstainer of non-alcoholic beverages. 
"You say that local option has been a great benefit to this county." 
"Yes sir," replied the Colonel. "As soon as us citizens realized how far 
we hatl to go for a drink we organized a good roads movement. 

The Chaperon: Do you ever lose that umbrella of yours? 
Mr. I. C. Berg: Xo. I don't. The person that takes this umbrella will 
have to take me. 

The Chaperon: Do I understand that to be a proposal or a threat? 

S(ii)b: When he was alive he got loaded on a highball. 

I'"reshie: Well? 

Soph: .\nd when he died he got loaded on a "bier." 


Sentinel: Halt. Who s^ties there? 

\'oice in the darkness : I'Viend with bottle. 

Sentinel : Pass friend ; halt, bottle 

Prep in search of inforniatidn : "Say, what's the lUue nioni in the 
White House used for?" 

College Politician: "h'or disappointed office seekers, I guess." 

Scboneberger writes the following explanation to Commy for absence 
troni reveille: "My eyes were so closed with sleep that I could not hear the 
bugle." To which the Commandant replies: "In the future I would advise 
you to sleep with one eye open. 

Pashful Soph: "( )h that 1 had an amljassador at the court of love." 
Demure Alaiden: "A minister wt)uld be good enough for me." 

ln<|uisiti\e John : "What kind of a man would vou like for a husbantl ?" 
Wise Nell: "( )h, a batchelor or a widower: I'm not particular which." 

The Young Heiress: "Do you know that handsome foreign Count who 
is making such a stir in Washington? Well, he said if I didn't marry him 
he'd do something desperate and awful." 

The ^I. A. Caesar: "Guess he would. He'll iiave to go to work." 

The girl to the "1-Veshie" at the June 1)all : "So this will end our en- 

The "h'reshie" : "Not necessarily. I guess 1 will be back next year." 

She sat in the corner of the reception hall and whispered to her friend. 
"Avoid that chap with the military walk." 

".And whv, pray," asked her friend. 

"lie's too earnest and so]3histicated. Why he's just the fellow wln) 
would ruin a lovely flirtation by proposing at the end of the dance. 

Senior: "Hear ynu had (|uite a close call last night, Chet. 
Rival Junior: Well, it was a pretty tight squeeze. 


It was (luriiis;- an intermission, and they strolled down the moonlit path. 
She was a deep-thinking girl, and lifting her lily white hand above her head, 
said: "Ah. what would yon old oak say if he could speak." "It would say I 
am an elm.'" replied the cold-hearted Senior mercilessly. 

Mrs. Mason — How do you find the chicken soup, Mr. Mayer? 
Kid — I have no difficulty in finding the soup, but I am afraid the 
chicken could prove an alibi. 

Junior: "I'm living in Providence now." 
Pert Damsel: "Are you?" 
Junior: "No, R. I." 

Soph: "I hear she is very angry with him." 

His Room Mate: "I presume so. The last time I saw her she was up 
in arms against him." 

Miss Innocence: "He said that he could read my face like a book." 
K. N. Ocker: "Lots of local color, I suppose." 

Johnnie (reading') : "Say, Xux. what do you think of a dinner at $60 
a plate?" 

Nu.x : "I don't think of it at all when there is a free lunch in sight." 

Her father was a Southern undertaker, but she was proud and clever. 

"What busines is your father in," I asked. 

"( ), dad is a Southern planter," she carelessly replied. 

liill M.: "Did you hear about Taus' watch?" 

Stiff: "Pawned?" 

Bill M.: "No. there's a woman in the case." 

Professor: "Mr. Cortelyou, What is the plural of sugar?" 
Cortelyou : "Lumps."

In the Autumn of 1908 the Faculty of the Maryland Agriculture College 
adopted the following resolutions: 

I. Whereas, there is a desire on the part of this Faculty to promote 
greater harmony between students and Faculty, which harmony is nec- 
essary for the proper co-operation of the Students and Faculty, and 

II. ^\'hereas, a lack of such co-operation has often times put the 
student body out of harmony with the Faculty in certain administrative 
matters connected with the College; and, 

III. \\'hereas, it is believed that if the Students could be brought in 
closer touch with the Faculty and placed in such relation toward the 
same as to have at least an advisory part in certain matters of adminis- 
tration, such harmony would be secured. 

I\'. Be it resolved, That a committee of the Faculty, consisting of five 

members, be appointed by the President, to be known as the Committee 
on Student Relations ; the duties of such committee to be to meet at 
least once a month with a committee of the students, to be known as 
the Student F.xecutive Committee, appointed as hereinafter described 
and hear all reasonable presentation of matters that may be offered by 
said cnnimittee of students and to adjust the same to the satisfaction of 
both students and Faculty so far as such adjustment may be possible, 
and to discuss such other matters as pertain to the welfare of the 
Institution. .\nd be it understood that both of these committees in 
joint session shall constitute one committee, to be known as the "Con- 
ference Committee." .\nd be it further 

V. Resolved, That this committee of the I'^aculty shall be a permanent 

and a working committee, ready at all times to perform its functions as 
herein described. .And be it further 

\T. Resolved, That the inauguration of this movement shall be as 

follows : 

.\t the time to be selected by this committee, the Faculty 
of this College shall meet the student body in the Auditorium 
and fully set forth the object and purpose of all matters con- 
tained in this resolution, and offer to the student body the 
privilege of selecting a committee from among themselves, to 
be known as the Student Executive Committee, the same to 
consist (jf four members of the Senior class, three of the [unior 


class, two of the Sophomore class and one member of the Fresh- 
men and Preparatory classes, the latter to have no vote in the 
determination of questions before the Conference Committee : 
the org-anization of which student committee shall he as 
follows : 

Oki;anization and ri-NCTioNS OF Student Executive Committee. 

\II. Nominations of members of this Committee shall be made by the 

respective classes with the allotment as set forth in Section VI, and the 
nominees shall be elected by a majority vote of the entire student body 
for one scholastic year. X'acancies occurring in the Committee shall 
be filled in like manner for the remainder of the unexpired term. All 
general elections by the Student .\ssembly shall be held at the call of 
the Chairman of the Faculty Committee on Student Relations. 

\"1I1. The Chairman of the Student Assembly shall, upon the presenta- 
tion of a petition from lo per cent, of the whole student body, submit 
to the Student Assembly the question of the resignation of any or all of 
the members of the Student Executive Committee, in which case the 
Chairman shall call a special meeting of the Student Assembly to con- 
sider such position, and upon a two-thirds vote of the whole student 
body in favor of such resignation, such member or members shall im- 
mediately resign. 

TX. .\ chairman of the Student Assembly, not a member of this Com- 

mittee, shall be elected by the Student .\ssembly and shall hold office 
for the scholastic year, or to the end of the unexpired term. 

DuiiEs OK THE Student Executive Co-\rMiTTEE. 

X. I. To bring to the attention of the Conference Committee any 
matter or matters re(|uiring adjustment, whether they pertain to the 
curriculum or to the administration of discipline, or to student privi- 
leges or to entertainments, or to athletics, or to the general welfare of 
the stvidents or of the College. 

2. To superintend the working of the honor system ; to see that it 
is observed ; to try cases of alleged violation of it, and to report the 
guilty parties to the Conference Committee. 

3. To discourage conduct unbecoming to gentlemen ; to foster the 
moral welfare of all the students, especially of the younger students ; to 


pre\fiit, as far as possible, serious breaches of discipline, and in case 
of destruction of property, to see that the loss fall; on the responsible 

4. To use all eft'orts jKissible to arouse a feeling friendliness for 
and co-operation with the members of the l'"aculty. 

5. To meet at stated times with the I-'aculty Committee on Student 
Relations, and at special meetings called at stated times in due order. 

And be it understood that all matters discussec bj the Conference 
Committee shall be considered as confidential, unless. by general consent, 
such matters should be placed before the Faculty for official action, or 
before the Student Assembly for consideration. 

C)n lanuarv 26, IQ09, a special committee appointed by the Faculty, in 
accordance with .\rticle \ I of the above resolutions, arranged a joint meet- 
ing of the I'^aculty and the Student body, and submitted for the adoption by 
the students the plan outlined in the above resolutions. After consideration by 
the several classes the plan of organization was adopted ; classes nominated 
their res])ective members upon the Student Executive Committee; the 
Student Assembly met, elected a chairman and confirmed the appointment 
of the students nominated by the several classes ; the l-'acnlty Committee on 
Student Relations was appointed by the President of the College and on 
I'ebruarv 24. i<jO'), the first meeting of the Conference was held and a time 
for regular monthly meetings was adopted. 

This orgaiiization is still in its infancy. It is early to predict the out- 
come of a movement so radical as this, but in the several meetings already 
held, matters of vital interest to the college have been considered and plans 
suggested for the removal of certain bad conditions prevailing, the continu- 
ance of which might have been productive of much harm to the College. 

It is to be expected that gradually the Conference Committee will be 
a positive force for the regulation of a more vivid college spirit. The 
Students seem to feel the responsibility as well as the privilege of hel])ing to 
direct in matters of minor administration. It is hoped that this training will 
result not only in improved relationsbi]) between Faculty and Students, but 
that the students will gain an actual knowledge of government that w'ill be 
of great use to them in their civil lift after leaving College — Long life, then, 
to the Conference Committee.
