^I^NEE DEEP in June. Yas 'tis a glorious summer morning, Gentle Reader, and
1I\ we shall take our cushions out on the campus under the great oak trees and recline
^^^ on the cool, velvety grass. How fine the breezes feel this morning. Draw close
around us friends and we shall tell you of the class of 1911 with many interesting inci-
dents in our college life during the past year.
Open this portfolio. The first photograph is of a most noted meratber of our faculty,
to whom we have dedicated this accumulation of memories.
Behold our signatures. Can you read in them aught of the owners character?
Scrutinize these our likenesses and listen meanwhile to the life history of each. Do they
not seem to exhibit a close correspondence?
Ah, you chime in on our ode as tho you have practiced it with us for class night.
Now sip of this cup offered you by the "Prophet" and the curtam will rise before
you, behind which we are rehearsing our roles for the play of "life" in 1920.
The Junior Historian desires to tell you of his class mates and sing to you his ode,
after which the under classmen will entertain you for awhile.
An Associate Editor will now tell you of our drill. Why, how, in what we drill
and the results attained. Bang! An M. A. Ceasar rings up a bull's eye at Stump Neck.
Patter, palter, patter! but our tents did not leak last June. Do not forget the portfolio,
for among the military pictures priceless jewels are interspersed.
Our Art Editor is at your elbow. You will surely not slight his productions, for
of them we are justly proud.
Do you ask what is the Rossbourg Club? The M. A. C. girl will tell you.
You are doubtless glad to know of the good work of our Y. M. C. A.
Hark! Give heed. Do you appreciate true oratory?
Are you not proud of the work of our sturdy athletes, and that our College stands
for clean athletics?
And just here you are made aware that we are not all in the same boat, but each
pursues his special course of study.
Yes this photo of our true friend in time of need we secured by dint of much coaxing.
Now give ear and we shall entertain you with things of lighter vein, and then you
will be invited to read our book of days.
We shall converse agam at the setting of the sun.

^U ROF. W. T. L. TALIAFERRO, head of the department of Agriculture at the
tLI Maryland Agricultural College, was born in 1856, at "Dunham Massie" in Glouces-
t[p ter Co., Va., where his family have for generations, devoted themselves to agricul-
ture and professional life.
His father was Major General Wm. Taliaferro, distinguished for his service in the
Mexican and Civil Wars; he was later prominent in the pohtical and legal history of
Virginia and at the time of his death was serving as judge of his native county.
His mother was, before her marriage. Miss Sallie Lyons, a gentle woman of the
old school, who combined those traits of mental culture and true refinement which are
typical of the subject of this sketch.
Prof. Taliaferro gained the rudiments of his education in private schools, mean-
while working upon the farm. Having matriculated at William and Mary College, he
was graduated in 1876, valedictorian of his class, with the degree of B. A.
For five years succeeding his graduation, he was principal of the high school at
Gloucester, Va,, meanwhile living on and managing one of his father's farms.
In 1881 he accepted the Principalship of the Bel Air Academy, in Harford Coun-
ty, Maryland, and the number of distinguished men who were his students recall with
gratitude that, thru his inspiration, they sought successfully to reach their goal.
In 1886 he accepted the position of Acting Editor of the Harford Democrat; mean-
while he kept up his interest in matters agricultural, being a member and Secretary of the
Fallston Farmers Club and taking a leading part in organizing the first series of Farmers
Institutes ever held in Maryland.
While in Bel Air, Mr. Taliaferro was active in the organization of Company D,
First Regiment, Md. National Guard, of which he was later made Captain.
The practical and theoretical training which he had acquired made Mr. Taliaferro
the logical choice for Prof, of Agriculture at this College when it was reorganized in
1892, and he accepted his unanimous election to this post. Although modern methods
had not been generally accepted, he entered upon his duties with a stout heaft and ardent
zeal, and his success was soon attested by the constant demand for him throughout the
State as counsellor, teacher and guide.
He was one of the pioneers in the propaganda for improved seed corn and the
growing of alfalfa for Maryland, and it is admitted by all that, by these two items alone,
immense sums have been added to the agricultural revenue of Maryland.
To promote these and other like movements from 1 900 to I 906 he acted as Agricul-
turist of the Md. Agr. Expt, Sta., and it caused general regret that the insistent demand
of his students at the College prevailed upon him to give up this part of his work.
Prof. Taliaferro is a loyal son of Maryland, the State of his adoption, he knows
her valleys and her hillsides by heart, and he has a fervid faith in her agricultural pros-
perity, provided, as he would have it "The wiUing arm be guided by the trained mind."
His students are succeeding in every county of the State and exemplify by their
prosperity, the value of his precepts and example.
Notwithstanding his close application and devotion to his profession. Prof. Talia-
ferro is a man of extensive reading and wide culture and the subjects are few upon which
he is not well informed, therefore it is not surprising that he should receive the much
coveted membership in the Phi Beta Kappa, conferred at his Alma Mater in 1895.
Thus equipped and trained Warner TaHaferro in his modest but firm way has been
a positive aggressive force m the makmg of men and the remaking of a College.
A most auspicious event transpired in the life of Prof. Taliaferro when in June,
1896, he wedded Miss Emily Franklin Johnson, daughter of John O. Johnson, Esq., of
College Park. Mrs. Taliaferro and her husband both delight in dispensing a hearty and
generous hospitality at their College Park home, which is made even more beautiful by
good care and good cheer, and the frequent acts of kindness and charity which are traced
to them naturally augment the esteem and affection in which they are held by all.

THE charter given our college by act of legislature in 1856 was for "An Agricul-
tural College and Model Farm." This "Model Farm," the first of its kind m our
country, was the beginning of what is now the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station.
Later, by the Hatch Act and the Adams Act, appropriating money for its use from the
National treasury, this Station was given a status as a national as well as a State insti-
tution. At first the Experiment Station was a department of the College, and managed
as such, but it has been found that such close association was not advantageous, so the
tendency has been for the College and Experiment Station to manage each its own affairs,
tho both are under the same board of Trustees.
The work of the Experiment Station may be broadly divided into the two branches.
Investigation and Instruction. The investigation is of those problems whose solution may
mean a lowering of the cost of any farm product. The Station uses a farm of nearly
three hundred acres for this work, and there are few better managed experimental farms
in the country. While, by the very nature of the work, the farm cannot be made to
yield a profit while under experiment, yet the question of cost is never lost sight of.
Instruction is thru various means. The most important of these is the bulletins, which
give the results of experiments, or distribute timely and useful information. These are
ser.t to any address upon application. At present the mailing list contains over 25,000
Another irr,portant means by which the Station distributes information is by letters
written in answer to specific inquiries from persons over the state. On several occas-
ions, also, the Station has sent educational exhibits which makes the round of the principal
fairs of the state.
The interest of the Experiment Station for the agricultural students arises from their
numerous walks over the Station grounds with Professor Taliaferro. How well we
remember those trips! The professor would have us follow him thru the experimental
grounds, delivering a running, or rather a walking lecture as we went, to those who kept
beside him. Now and then he would stop, wait for the stragglers to catch up, then he
would discourse at length upon something of especial interest in some experimental plot.
The professor's constant warnmg, however, was "Hands Off ! " to those who wished
to lay inquisitive fingers on Station property. Several of us can remember yet, what
happened to us when he plucked a turnip which was perhaps an inch in diameter.
Notwithstanding such little differences as this, we learned much on these walks.
More irrportant than any facts that we absorbed, however, was the training we had in
the art of observation. Without such a farm as this to be used for illustrative purposes,
our training in these principles would have been much less complete.

Of stature he is passing tall,
And sparely formed, and lean withal.
Who does the best his circumstance allows
Does well, acts nobly, angels could do no more.
HO IS that walking down the hall with
a long steady stride? This comely young
man with a bold physique, clean cut fea-
tures and an expression of honest trust in
all mankind. He is speaking in short terse sen-
tences, discussing with Henry some practical
points in plant culture.
O. R. Andrews, alias "Puckum," was born at
Hurlock, Maryland, May 11, 1888 — a loyal son of
the "Good Old Eastern Sho'." His early life was
spent in faithful and industrious service on the
farm, meanwhile taking the course of primary
school education. In 1905 Ray entered the Wil-
mington Conference Academy at Dover, Dela-
ware. It was here that he was dubbed "Puck-
um," which cognomen has clung to him ever
since. It was also here that he made his debut
upon the gridiron.
After a year at the Academy Ray decided that
a farmer's life should be his future career, and
so thought it wise to complete his education in
his state agricultural college.
Andrews has been a faithful student during
f, '^- ' his college course and is an ardent admirer of
,,^ ^ ^^-- Prof. "Tollie," from whom he has received much
'^ "'^ individual attention, being the only man in the
Senior class taking agronomy.
In athletics, "Puckum" has had a long and honorable career on the gridiron, having
been on the first team for the last three years. He was on the track team in his Fresh-
man year and has done much towards making the Lacross games a success during the
In military affairs Lieut. Andrews has always been "on the job," tho in tactics he
and "Commy" could not always agree as to the proper commands necessary to put into
execution certain complex battalion maneuvers.
Ray has not yet, to our knowledge, entered the social arena, tho we have a well
decided opinion that a certain fair damsel of Hurlock has a strong interest in the affairs
at M. A. C.
We wish to our friend and classmate, health, wealth and happiness as an Eastern

^^THE door opens carelessly, a light foot fall
I 'I is heard on the laboratory floor, no one looks
^^^ up — no one needs to look up. Every one
knows it is "Reds," and the first thing
he is going to say is, "Hey Little, got your notes?"
"Give me a match somebody." And "Reds" set-
tles down to work with the aid of his usual morn-
On July 21st, 1893, in the flouriehing city of
Berwyn tliere came into existence a queer little
specimen of humanity, and there was a strange
sound coming o'er the world: a crying of dead
prophets from their tombs, the songs of dead
poets coming from their graves, and all seemed
to prophesy the coming of something new in the
line of a botanist, and Barrows was the result.
At the age of 5 he made his first appearance
inside the Berwyn School and there he remained
until he was 13, when he decided that he had re-
ceived too much education to remain there any
longer. The first place he noticed was M. A. C.
and so in the fall of 1906 he made his debut as a
College student. Paul belonged to the "Oggelets"
and as a gun was too large he was given a bugle,
and as an M. A. C. bugler right valiantly did he
toot. Finally he overcame a bugle in size and
was given a gun which he has trailed around the
campus for the past two years.
Paul is the only boy of our class who has hair that can be told from a distance,
and strange to say in making his selection of the fair sex he always seems to choose
those, who have hair of a similar color. You would never think this boy to be a ladies'
man, but really he is at the head of the class when it comes to things of this kind. He
is one of our day students and as a rule is away from his home almost every evening,
but it is impossible for his mother to tell where he is because Paul is very popular
in the social world and has a different place to go every evening in the week. As he
is taking the Botanical course it would be perfectly natural for his first choice to be the
"Woods" and so on Sunday evenings he can be found among the "Woods" of N. E.

Y GOSH, what a meal, but never the less
"Rooster" Chaney otherwise known as
the "Chicken," can be seen grinding away
after every one else has left the mess
This is no singular occurrence for he can
be seen every day in the same situation.
"Rooster" first saw the light of day July 15,
1890, at Glyndon, Balto. County, Md. From Glyn-
don he moved to Reistertown, from Reistertown
to Glyndon and from Glyndon back to Reister-
town. The last we heard he was still living in
the last mentioned place, but we would not be
at all surprised if he had moved back to the other
place — which ever one it is. He received his ear-
ly education from the public schools, graduating
from Franklin High School with honors. Chaney
came to us in the fall of 1909, and entered the
He stands well in his class and is perhaps
one of the best mathematicians that has gradu-
ated at M. A. C. in years. Every one looks upon
this white haired youngster as an expert track
and lacross man. "Abe" True says Chaney is one
of the fastest men he ever knew, for on their
,^^^_^^_,_ _ trip to Philadelphia he made a tour in five min-
"""*'^ utes that would take any ordinary man two or
three hours. Chaney has had many wonderful
experiences for no one can relate an adventure but that he has had a more marvelous
one of similar character.
"Chicken" is a great marksman. He holds the highest record in the battalion this
year and won the medal on the range in 1910. When not playing lacross or shooting
he can be found on the pike in running suit with handkerchief tied about his head hit-
ting the grit for a short distance run to Hyattsville or perhaps taking the ten mile
circuit to Beltsville when he wants to whet up a good appetite. When time grows stale
on his hands he takes a turn at sliding off the chapel roof under the mild delusion
that it is the cellar stairs of his childhood. When it comes to snoozing Chaney needs
no soporific charms. On one occasion in his Junior year it required the united efforts
of all A company, half the band with their "noise boxes" and several pitchers of cold
water to lure him back from slumberland.
Chaney is a trained vocalist. His voice is one in a thousand and we are sure that
he would make a grand success of Hindoo dirges.
Chaney is a model of consistency. He takes much care to be equally proficient
in all his studies and will not show partiality to his favorites by putting more time
on those than others. He is "Catfish's" brag engineer and will have completed a broader
course in math than any previous graduate of this college.

ENTLEMEN, observe this shining example
of virgin innocence, meekness, and mod-
'esty. A tall, pale brother, carrying himself
as if he had swallowed a ramrod and was
having trouble with the digestion tliereof. He
brings with him, wherever he may be, an atmos-
phere of pure, unspotted sanctity.
This is Harry Cobey, another of the various
and wonderful products of good old Charles Coun-
ty. Born June 21, 1890, of a good old Southern
Maryland family (originally from Ireland) he has
had a varied if not exciting experience. He has
been tutor, farm manager, teacher, and, in an
amateur way, an actor, and now he has turned
editor. His early education was received at
Friendship Academy, in his native county. En-
tering M. A. C. in 1906, he continued here for two
years, at the end of which time he was compelled
to leave on account of sickness. He returned in
1909 to complete his course.
While Harry is not a brilliant scholar, he is
a hard, steady worker at whatever he determines
to do, and in the end such tactics always bring
him thru. His original theories for the solution — --.^ ~----__-_^-^^^*='
of calculus problems are the despair of "Doc.
Tollie," and as for his opinion of that instructor,
we will not repeat it here, for fear of ruining
Harry's reputation for saintly meekness. English Composition is, however, the great-
est load on his mind, and in this he is not alone in his class. "Der Wissen Schaftliche
Deutsche" is another of his foes.
But to see Harry at his best, one should be with him on a surveying trip or one of
"Commy's" map making expeditions. There he is in his element, and the neat work he
can turn out is surprising. His ambition is to become an expert civil engineer, and on
leaving this college he may enter some university to complete the education he has so

HE SUN is just rising, and as attention
sounds for reveille a tall, slender, dignified
individual with spectacles, and wearing a
gray sweater, with towel thrown across his
shoulaer and a cake of soap in his hand, takes
his station on the front steps and peers around
for the O. C. — On time to the dot as always. A
half minute later the occupant of 48 appears upon
the scene, also in gray sweater, and is inevitably
greeted with "Wie finden Sie sich, mein Herr," by
the brag German scholar of the Senior Class.
"Say, wait a minute. Got a cigarette? Gimme
a match. I haven't anything 'cept the habit." It
is thus that many a poor unfortunate who courts
the goddess nicotine is approached by the
"Preacher," otherwise known as Thomas Da-
The "Preacher" first opened his eyes to the
light of day in the town of Davidsonville, Anne
Arundel County, Maryland, on November 14,
1887. His first spoken word was not "Mamma,"
as is natural with most children, but immediately
upon recovering from his bewilderment at being
ushered into a new planet, he set up a howl for
something to smoke.
"Tom" received his early education at public
and private schools in "his own town," but was
then forced by ill health to abandon his educational pursuits until the fall of 1907 when
he alighted at M. A. C.
Since making this his headquarters Tom has shown a pronounced talent for study,
and becomes very much disgusted if he discovers anyone in the class putting more time
on his studies than himself. Thus he has gained high esteem among his class mates,
who come to him with many of their scholastic difficulties. "Tom" is a great favorite
of "Doc Tollie's" and the only one in the class with whom the latter will condescend
"Dr. Davidson" is a stanch advocate of the "Conley Regime," and has been a
necessary adjunct to the military department both in the tactics class room as an
authority on the theory of drill, and as a medical reference book when first aid to the
injured is being discussed, and also on the field as "Commy's" chief marshal.
Tho "Tom" has had a most propitious college career he avows that he shall be
glad to settle down as an Anne Arundel County engineer and politician; yet we suspect
that a subtle influence in the shaping of his future plans is exerted by certain of the
fair sex, whose marvelous beauty Anne Arundel County has long been noted. May
his path thru life be smooth, and Dame Fortune take him for her own true son.

what may be heard in 36 Old Barracks, where f
the "Devil" resides and reigns supreme. \
Roland hails from the great "City" of New
Windsor, Carroll County, situated on the Western
Maryland Railroad. It was in this town and in
the preparatory department of New Windsor Col- i,
lege that he laid the foundation for a higher ed- j
ucation which he later elected to obtain at M. A. j
C. and accordingly matriculated here as a Prep \
in 1906. H. Roland by his attractive ways soon
had all society at his feet and since then his chief f
occupation during study hours has been writing "
letters of regret or acceptance; but in the major- i
ity of cases, acceptance, for Sunday afternoons 'i,
have seldom found him in M. A. C. To attend ,
dances on Friday nights has been his rule with /
few exceptions. In his early years at M. A. C. '(,
Roland would always terminus at Hyattsville but
after having become more accustomed to the city '
or for some other unknown reason Wash, has .
been for some time passed his accustomed desti- " ^^— -- -^s«-^^ ~~-*-*'' ~'"
nation; and at last he has explained to us that
"she" had moved to town.
In the Senior year he was given the privilege of holding his own in the file closers
of Company B as Second Lieut, and having been elected manager of the Baseball Team
he has given much time and energy to the requirements of this office. One has to be
very careful in speaking to Manager H. R. Devilbiss when acting in his official capacity
or no reply will be forthcoming. However his most intimate friends could manage
once in a while to break down this barrier of self importance and to get a glowing
account of some of his miraculous exploits in town, which always terminate in some
one kidding him about taking so long to say good night and giving him the following
advice: "If you love the girl, why don't you marry her?"
Devilbiss is one of "Doc. Tollies" most dutiful proteges and immensely enjoys (?)
playing lackey whenever "His Highness" desires "reference books" and other official
paraphernalia brought from class room to office or from office to field. As an instru-
ment man "Devil" has become both accurate and expeditious; when there is a precise
line to run by the Senior C. E.'s he is always there to do the work. Yet it has been
noticed that he is not particularly fond of a rodman's job especially when there are
ferocious bovines snorting about the premises.
We think that after a few years of travel and adventure as an engineer "Devil"
will settle down as a Carroll County farmer and politician, with a Carroll County lassie
for his bride. He loves to tell his credulous classmates of the marvelous amount of
hay he can pitch on a hot summer's day, and his long evening drives up the country.

A glass is good, and a lass is good,
And a pipe to smoke in cold weather;
The world is good, and the people are good
And we're all good together — O'Keefe.

^^n^-^ C) HURRY, gentlemen, no hurry. Take
your seats. Have a smoke!" "Golly day!
Did you see that article in yesterday's
'Sun,' about that split between the Dem-
'•■, ocratic leaders? Goodness Gracious! Why, I
J never saw such rotten politics. If you'll take my
"\ word, the next election is going to bring some
"l sweeping changes in this state!" And Raymond,
" jolly Dutchman that he is, in all his portly dignity
/ is settled comfortably in his arm chair, heels on

/ with soft brown eyes upon his ever welcome vis-

may wish to stay.
, C. Raymond Drach (often corrupted into
Drake or Drack) made his entree into human so-
' ciety in 1889. He has had a number of homes,
but for the last six years has had his home at
Sam's Creek, Frederick County, on the border of
Carroll. After capping his public school educa-
tion with a year at New Windsor College, he de-
cided to become a mechanical engineer and ma-
triculated at M. A. C.
Upon entering college our industrious Ray-
mond joined the retinue of Johnny Green, and
finding service at his court profitab'e from the
standpoint of exercise and recreation as well as
of remuneration, he has continued in faithful service to the numerous potentates of M.
A. C. culinary affairs, rising higher each year in esteem and rank until for the past
two years he has been Commander-in-Chief of the commissary department, and right
nobly has he ruled his wayward yeomen.
Raymond has succeeded in making the military department keep hands off for this
year, having donned his much despised uniform but twice in the whole year. "Commy"
has not agreed with him entirely as to his drilling ability, however, and they have ex-
changed many heart-to-heart confidences regarding the same. Had he been aware of
the sweet naps that Raymond enjoyed during chapel exercises, and his frequent "busi-
ness excursions" to town, he would probably have coaxed still more strenuously to
make the erring one see things as they ought to be seen.
As a scholar, Raymond is due a prize as a writer of forceful themes, and he excels
as a mechanical draftsman, though in "Deutsch" he and "Boohoo" seldom agree as to
the proper translation, nor did he fall deeply in love with foundry work.
In social affairs, our gentle Raymond seldom fails to charm the maiden's hearts,
and we believe that he will soon be a rising young mechanical engineer in Philadelphia,
with a fair Frederick county damsel for his "Frau."

Did you hear that boy laugh. — Browning.
The glory of a firm capacious mind. — Pope.
^^HE SCENE was in Crisfield, Md., some
/ I nineteen or twenty years ago. The mists
^^U< cleared. The fog horns ceased and great
steamers sailed by in majestic silence. The
children on the streets quit yelling, and people
talked in hushed tones. All nature seemed to
hold its breath. Suddenly a strange sound pealed
forth, such as never before fell upon the ears of
man. It continued half an hour. Charles Cator
Purniss was introducing himself to the world.
He has been making similar noises spasmodically
ever since, and the older he grows the more pro-
longed are the spasms. For want of a better ,
name we call it a "laugh," though he is often ^
seized with a spell when every one around is as '
solemn as a judge, and was once taken with one j
while the preacher was saying, "Ashes to ashes jt
and dust to dust." (
Purniss has forged his way through the con- \
ventional routine of scholastic training with re-
markable rapidity and success. Graduating from
Crisfield High School in '08, with high honors,
and an ambition to become a learned mathema-
tician, he soon decided to clear for M. A. C.
Armed with his High School "dip" and Went- -_. ^-- — '^'
worth's Trig, and log tables, and proudly flying
the flag of the "Eastern Sho' " in every word and
act, he bore down upon us on Sept. 15th, and was promptly classed as a Sophomore.
Por awhile Charlie suffered from love sickness for the girl he left behind, but was
soon cured of the malady and became a loyal M. A. Ceasar.
On Saturday nights "Pop" and "Devil" are often seen strolling down the path for
a "large evening" in town. These gaieties on one occasion awakened the aesthetic
nature of the former to such an extent that upon returning to college he preferred to
sleep in the sweet perfume of a flower bed than upon his accustomed couch.
"Say Wife, what's the lesson in hydraulics?" No sooner told the forgotten assign-
ment than Purniss. the student is lost to all else but his lessons. A brief period of
intense concentration is all that is required, however, and his books have long been
closed and "Pop" is in slumberland while his classmates are still vaguely groping
around in a labyrinth of mathematical formulae.
"Pop" has been a necessary adjunct to the baseball team for the past three years.
As an example of his prestige as an athletic hero on the team's return from a recent
victory, he was borne home from Riverdale in a "chariot" drawn by admiring school-
As a military man the Captain of B Company is a shining star. His company
has merited the banner in target practice this year, and "Pop" says he sure is going
to win the sword. We wish him good luck. We have no fear that he will have a most
successful and happy life, brightened by the love of "some other" Crisfield "Dearie."

Quickly, let's have the reading! Gee, but this

Yes, we all know that "D. W." is running the tran-
sit today, for if he were not we would not even
know that it was being run, or see who was run-
ning it; for most likely we would be made aware
that the recorders task was of such paramount
importance in this problem that we would be un-
able to see beyond the field book of Mr. Glass —
skillful abacist and lightning calculator.
"About, Face! Forward, Ho! Get step there,
men, One, Two, Three, Four, One, Two, — " and all
is quiet in the line of file closers, for Lieut.
Glass is thundering forth the cadence with such
martial vehemence that the waiter's gabbering is
but dumb show and the hitherto roaring dish
washer a noiseless instrument.
V js^^' "Go get 'em boys! Play ball! That's the stuff.
^*"-- -^ — - — Hold 'em, Maryland! Carry 'em down the field.
Back off the side lines men. Three rahs for M.
A. C." Yes! That solidly built, round faced,
rapid action being with a keen gray eye, who is wearing his cap above a Teddy-bear
head is cheering for the same team upon which he played in his first years at College.
Lo, it is gala night. The light of the ballroom chandeliers is reflected by the bril-
liant uniforms of the usual coterie of M. A. C. gallants, and gently caresses the unsur-
passed beauty of a galaxy of M. A. C. girls. As the orchestra strikes up the strains
of the Cubanola Glide Mr. Glass, a model of graceful, magnetic vivacity, leads his
"Queen" upon the floor. Other couples follow suit. The dance is on. Let joy be un-
confined. David Wilson is in his glory now.
'Tis Sunday evening, and the Y. M. C. A. meeting is in progress. Pres. Glass is in
the midst of an earnest appeal to his attentive audience for purity of life and high
ideals. He points out the character of Robert E. Lee, as among men, a model, and
mentions that saddest day of the Southern Confederacy, upon the twenty anniver-
sary of which, David Wilson Glass was recognized as a terrestial entity.
The record of Glass at M. A. C. has been excellent and we believe he will contin-
ually grow more prominent as a factor for the uplifting of the human race — in Baltimore.

^I^P IN THE mountain fastnesses of Western _
Jrl Maryland in April, 1890, there came into be- ,-'*^"'^'^ '* ~~ ^ ^ ~~^,
Mi\ ing Joseph William Kinghorne — a shock, a
tremble, the mountains slid a few inches on
their bases. Then Mother Nature saw that it was j
well and Earth rolled on once more. And ''i
"Baldy" rolled with it. Perhaps to this we may
attribute that exceeding roundness and beautiful
symmetry of form and feature which are so char-
"Baldy's" education and philosophy have
been developed along somewhat similar lines. i
Starting as the prize entry at a baby show where i
he first learned to say "Tiss me, Tid," Baldy mi- ;
grated to Massachusetts and in the schools ol
Boston, "Tiss me Tid" .was translated into
Yankee, to the infinite peril of the little Puritan
lassies' most sacred precepts. |,
Ere the lisping stage had passed, however, /
the charm of the South had reasserted itself and
the public schools of Baltimore contributed the
more substantial elements. Then at Maryland
Institute, with a natural taste for art, he learned
to give "color," local and otherwise, to his origi-
nal "Tiss me," etc.
But "Baldy's" itinerary was not yet complete.
About this time, Mr. Liberty H. Bailey began
preaching "Back to Nature" as the ideal of existence.
"'Back to Nature.' H'm; That will be a short cut for me," says "Baldy," and
chose the route thru M. A. C. That was four years ago. "Baldy" is not yet "all there,"
but we have hopes.
Fate was kind to him from the start. His introduction to M. A. C. was via the
hospital from which "Baldy" emerged to begin college life with a clean sheet — on the
top of his head. The hospital records state that this was a necessary sanitary pre-
caution, but we have always suspected that "Baldy" had it shaved in the belief that
the interior was already so well developed that future mental impression would have to
be chalked up on the outside.
"Baldy's" long suit, however, is decorating. He can decorate anything from the
Manual of the Saber to a ballroom. But it is when the funds of the Rossbourg Club
run low and the eve of a dance is at hand, that Kinghorne is at his best. A group of
the newest "rats" are commanded to "shed" — and a wealth of "greenery" is there to
adorn the walls. "Silvester, let us have your 'Memories of a Saturday Night,' please,"
and immediately the soft enveloping rays of a moon pour forth from where you last
saw a prosaic electric bulb. Then "Joe" sits down to the piano to add a little "tone"
to the production, and lo! the transformation of our chapel is complete.
"Baldy" contemplates a return to the farm. There or elsewhere success and hap-
piness are for him the prophecy and the earnest wish of the Class of 1911.

AP! RAP! RAP! Say "Duke" open up. Come
on, open up, I know you're in. No, I don't
want anything to eat. Open up. After this
gentle request for admittance Little opens
up, which is usually accompanied by a, "What do
you want?" "Say Duke can you press this suit
be Lore three o'clock? I want to go to town."
"What the thunder man, I got three suits here
now that I have to press yet and then I have
a pressing engagement in town this evening my-
self." And thus the troubles of the "Duke of
Paul Revere did not wish to interrupt the
practical jokes and disappointments of all Fools'
Day, so at Hagerstown, Maryland, on the second
day of April 1889, Paul made his debut into the
world. Perhaps it would have been far more ap-
propriate for him to have been born on the pre-
ceeding day but then "Two jokes is no joke."
His education has been of an experimental
nature. He first tried one school and then anoth-
er in both Hagerstown and Funkstown, but finally
after giving all the schools these two towns could
furnish a fair and impartial trial, he entered M.
'"'feis^^^*...^^- — =^-.--'~~-^- - A. C. in 1907. He was first seen coming up the
cinder path with a flat iron and shaving cup in
one hand, suit case in the other and razors pro-
jecting from each pocket.
This gentleman from Washington County has had a "corner" on love ever since he
first saw a skirt. True love with him began on the Antietam and, alas, who knows where
it will end. Most likely it will be another case of Ta — Da-Da-Da. But never-the-less
every morning's mail brings a bit of encouragement, a sprinkle of inspiration and a
Quaker Oats smile.
Little's future is surrounded by mystery. He says that for at least two years he
is going to teach; but this would be impossible if the center of his future vocation is
more than twenty miles from — well, now whom do you suppose? For the "Little" man
will surely "chuck" the job. Let us all hope however that within a few years we will
find Paul located on a Washington County farm realizing those dreams that he used to
picture during his bachelor days at M. A. C.

^!^ ALTIMORE County population received a
•llffl decided increase on October 12, 1890, when
'jyl Walter Mays first beheld his terrestial en-
vironment. He was very well satisfied with
the result of his observation, however, for he
determined to accept everything as it was, nodded
his raven locks in approval, then sinking
it low in the pillow, let fall the pink curtains of
his dark brown windows and sweetly slumbered.
At a tender age Walter toddled off to the
public school near by. After the primary school
course was finished he spent two years at Balti-
more Polytechnic which awakened in him a desire
to become a mechanical engineer. Well, it goes
without saying that no place but M. A. C. could
satisfy his ambition; it was but a short while
after his enrollment in the class of '11 that he
was duly recognized as a full fledged M. A.
Ceasar, and a general good fellow who soon won
for himself a coterie of friends. ,
Mays early became prominent in the notice
of the disciplinary authorities because of his long
distance sleeping abilities, the profoundness of
which was so often bugle proof.
As a society man Walter is an up-to-date suc-
cess — so the birds tell us that come flying south ~~"''
from Hereford; while the reports from Hyatts-
ville come direct and in unmistakable form. He is always lamenting the fact that
so much of his time is taken up by social duties. Mays tells us that it is not his fault
tho— the girls simply will not let him alone.
Mechanical engineering is still his hobby, and he is very much interested in his
thesis — the design of a traveling crane. We hope to see him in a short time a promi-
nent figure in engineering circles.

"An affable and a courteous gentleman."
"I Dut him down for a gentleman and he fills the bill."
HERE ARE two things that Southern Mary-
land is noted for, first that its natural re-
sources are exhausted, and second "Gene."
Perhaps the latter could be included under
the former. Nevertheless in the cold month of
December 1890, two days before Christmas, just
when the holiday spirit filled the air and every-
body was happy, something happened — Old Dame
Nature presented Southern Maryland with its last
hope. The embryo genius who in future years
would become "the man who made Southern
Maryland famous," the man who revolutionized
agriculture, the "Hog King" of the South, and
the oldest subscriber of the Southern Planter.
"Gene" first attended the public schools of
Prince George County and then Gonzaga College,
Washington, D. C. The life in our Capital did
not appeal to "Gene," however, so he returned to
Prince George, and completed his primary educa-
tion in the rural schools. Having exhausted the
country school teacher's store of knowledge, the
county authorities granted him leave of absence
lor four years to attend college. So Mudd the
Second, entered M. A. C. to study agriculture, to
graduate and, most important of all, to be in Col-
lege Park. How "Gene" does love that Park.
'Tis true its points of interest are exceedingly
limited, but then it is near the College, and drop letters only require a one cent stamp,
"Gene" is one of the few literary men of the class and he has acquired that awful
practice of thinking. We can always tell when "Gene" is thinking, for in so doing he
ventilates his mouth in such a manner that it makes a dangerous retreat for flies. As
a military man, his ability is unsurpassed, and the only reason he is not going into
the Army is because he feels as though he is under obligations to fulfill his mission on
earth, which is to make a Greater Southern Maryland.
June 15th will find "Gene" ready to start his great task, but knowing him and
his capabilities as we do, we feel sure that his ambitions will be realized. We wish
him great success.

A THUNDEROUS uproar disturbs the math-
ematical calm in Prof. Harrison's section
room. After assuring himself that the ,,«
roof is not journeying down to meet the '
basement, he proceeds to inform "Commy" that /
this gross disorder in the room above must be
stopped. The O. D. is promptly sent upstairs on
the double quick. After much clashing of his
sword against the door of room 38 the latch is 1
turned and the sole occupant stands revealed — a
handsome young man with a classical face and a
twinkle in his soft brown eye. His coat is un-
buttoned, open letter in one hand and a "five
plunk" in the other. "Hello, Henry, have my
physical expressions of anticipated happiness be-
cause of recent pecuniary acquisitions been an-
noying to those below?" Casually remarks John. /
John C. graduated from Reistertown High ';
School in '08, and in the fall of that same year
favored M. A. C. with his presence for the phil- /
anthropic purpose of making "Dock Maclv's" ',;
chemical class larger by one, for the patriotic
purpose of learning how to be a military man.
He immediately decided that the chemical "lab"
would be a -good place to spend his leisure hours
and has held to his decision to such an extent "- _ ^, --_^-, — .^.-''''
that during the first term of his Senior year he ~ ^~^'
was appointed assistant chemist. This so elated John that "Boohoo" needs must
send the orderly to drag him from behind a stack of bottles when his presence is de-
sired for a few minutes in the "Dutch" class.
As a student John has made a most honorable record. He soon set 100 as his
standard in theme writing, and has seldom fallen below it. We presume that "Commy"
takes it for granted his themes are worth that without reading them. Wonder why?
John passed thru Junior physics unscathed and conditionless, a most wonderful ac-
complishment for a chemical student.
But as a chemist "Prof. Reese" is at his best. Enter the laboratory when you
may, and there he will be found, coat off, sleeves rolled up, collar turned in, hands
begrimed and surrounded by the most nose startling odors. Yet in this disagreeable
atmosphere of the chemical "lab" John can sleep the soundest and snore the loudest
of all the Senior class.
Finally "Johnny" is a social man — first because it is his nature to be sociable,
and second, because it is the proper thing for a young man to be. He has not missed
a dance at College during his Senior year, and has taken in several extras in the
neighboring towns. His principal objection to dancing is taking his girl home after
it is over, and losing "whole chunks of good old sleep."

LOW Ye Scottish bagpipes! I^et the
planes and rivers of Norfolk County re-
sound with the news that the clan of Sil-
vester in America has received a decided
increment. Yes it has been increased by a very
material quantity; and Lindsay McDonald Silves-
ter at once begins to voice his rights as a free
born American citizen, and a loyal descendant of
Scottish Chiefs. This happened in 1889 — anoth-
er date to be memorized by the future school
boy. Next after introducing himself this practi-
cal infant began to drop some hints as to what
he would be doing thirty years after, by yelling
out when hungry, "Pay attention here and toss
over my retort of lactic acid."
However, for the first sixteen years of his life
Lindsay was willing to limit himself to the free-
dom of his father's farm, after which he took up
his nbode in the near-by town of Portsmouth. The
schools of Norfolk and Portsmouth furnished him
Fufficient mental browsing until he moored at
Norfolk High School for a three year's course
But L. McDonald was first brought promi-
nently into our notice in '07, when he allowed
himself to be installed at M. A. C. And tho his
halter chafed a little at first, he soon learned its
length. "Silvy" was always by far the busiest man in the class, and when anything
is doing he is sure to be on hand — being especially adept at percipitating concentrated
showers upon the passers by; indulging in explosive cachinations at unexpected mo-
ments; raising a rough house when in need of exercise; kidding the second assistant
Prof, in chemistry; making spiels to his company at reveille and worshipping the
As a military genius, Capt. Silvester is a masterful success. It is the undisputed
opinion in all the country round that he can handle his company better and knows
more about drilling than any one else in the battalion, for often his commands have
been heard as far as Berwyn Heights. Lindsay is also expert at handling the animal
of genus, eques, and occasionally reveals his day dreams of pleasant drives in "Ole
Virginia" by giving his company such commands as "gid up," and company "whoa."
it has been noticed of late that "Donald" has grown very haughty since he can claim
to be the only man in the battalion who is as large as "Commy."
As an orator Silvester has made the most creditable record. His plea for a greater
army having won for M. A. C. the Maryland Intercollegiate Oratorical Championship
for the third successive year.

Good sense, which only is the gift of Heaven.
And tho no science, fairly worth the seven. — Pope.
^i^ ELLER made his ingress into this world
mI4 sometime in the latter part of the nine-
^l^^teenth century. At the early age of eigh-
teen months he exerted his authority by af-
fecting the removal of the paternal domicile to
the good old Middletown Valley of Frederick
County. Since that date he has clung tenaciously
to Myersville, his adopted liome town, with the
exception of Sunday nights, which he invariably
spends at a certain rendezvous in Middletown.
Graduating from the Myersville High School
in 1908 under the expert tutelage of "Pat" Ma-
honey — whom some of us remember as a senior
in '07 — "Jake" cast about for a college education, .
and being a man of common sense and good '
judgment, reported for duty at M. A. C. the tol- ;
lowing fall, and was cordially received as a mem-
ber of the Sophomore class. I
His work at college has been characterized I
by a strict attention to duty thruout the course;
the only worldly diversion in which he seems to
have taken a real interest being the writing of
bulky letters to Middletown, and the careful peru-
sal of those "sweetly scented things" which come ' _
by the return mail. ^»=«--- — —
As Assistant College Librarian "Smitty" is
always on the job. In fact, he likes the library
so well that he spends all his spare time there, away from the cares and work of the
world, lost in deep cogitations.
Smith is a man of original theories. Upon interrogation he may deny this state-
ment, but it is nevertheless true. For tho everybody in the class quit studying the
day after arriving here, deciding it to be a useless waste of time when there are
so many more interesting things to do, our far-sighted J. Keller has stuck persistently
to the rule of hard work and still maintains the absurd theory.
However, there may be more method in his madness than "Smitty's" less diligent
classmates will admit, for he must assuredly be at home on all the ground he has
covered in his college course, and so is bound to succeed in any branch of endeavor
he may elect to pursue.
We all wish a prosperous life to this man of solid virtue, whd for the last three
years has been to us a practical lesson in economics. May his progeny be as those of
the son of Hagar, and his supply of the long green as plentiful as the autumn leaves.

the usual good word of "Sonny, the Dutchman,"
for all he meets; though his square jaw, muscu-
lar physique, and independent gait serve as a
fair warning against any impositions, in jest or
otherwise. His honest blue eyes have their usual
expression of goodfellowship, but also a searching
gaze that spells close observation. Sometimes
there is the sly glance that hints of ways that
are dark and tricks that are vain, but his un-
feigned honesty has won our hearty trust, and
we ask him to let us in on the joke. Whenever

with a "Hail, fellow well met," and a warm, hearty
slap on your shoulder.
"Sonnenberg of Bladensburg." But it has not
always been so, nor will it be much longer, says
"Sonny." The first breath he drew was not in
Bladensburg, nor are we going to say on the

^~~~~*— ' — ^>^. the greatest nation in — America — no, in the world,
and we are sure "Sonny" will agree with us
there. We mean in the latter statement; he says
he does not recall the occasion of the former. "Sonny" soon tired of Washington
and moved to the ancient and historic tow;n of Bladensburg, whose pride is to glory
in the past and hope for the future. But "Sonny" was satisfied with the quiet and
peaceful life and remains uncontaminated by his surroundings.
Sonnenberg is particularly enamored of practical engineering and is very fond of
the dean of his course. In "Deutsch" he is "Boohoo's" authority for idioms. He has
taken much interest in practical law especially as concerns the rights of protecting
private property against marauders. Says he needs to put such knowledge to prac-
tical use occasionally. "Sonny" says he intends to travel this summer, and probably
locate in a Western town for awhile. We wish him good health and good luck.

N FEBRUARY 19th, 1892, at Brigton, Md.,
Henry Stabler opened his eyes and observ-
ed that he was, took it as a matter of
course, and has taken everything as a mat-
tr of course, from that day to this. He also de-
cided that it would be a practical idea to let
mundane society know of his whereabouts and so
he gave vent to a decided and well articulated
yell; and he has been saying practical things in
a decided and articulated manner ever since.
Henry early developed a zeal for study, and
went through the public school course in four
years, acquiring for himself a fine rep as a
bright scholar. In '08 Henry graduated from
Sherwood High School, and most naturally enter-
ed M. A. C. the succeeding fall as Stabler the
During his Sophomore and Junior years we
saw little of Henry outside of the class rooms,
for he occupied all his spare time with practical
work at the Experiment Station. But when he
took upon himself the dignity of a Senior, Henry
thought it wise to take up his abode in the bar-
racks, fulfill the disciplinary duties of a Senior,
and to enjoy Senior privileges. As an O. D. he
has performed his duty admirably, treating all
alike and being partial to none.
Henry is still as studious as ever, and when not diligently absorbing the contents
of his text books he is apt to be found in the library lost to all else but the world of
No doubt Henry will some day become a noted and successful horticulturist — re-
gardless of the fact that he mutilated the college orchard by pruning off the limbs to
see if their centers were sound. He has also experimented with the retail fruit busi-
ness during his Senior year, and it proved to be the one Senior graft that the cadets
were willing to swallow without complaint. He was also pestered by upright "ro-
dents" getting loose in his storage house unawares, but after sprinkling a layer "ten-
tens" around the premises he suffered no further molestation.
Henry cares but little for the social world, and has not yet been smitten by
Cupid's darts. However, we attribute this to his tender age, for a handsome youth
is sooner or later a sure victim of the fatal disease.

ever ready tales of travel, danger, or adventure,
which are not always true, but which always

In College True has had an unparalleled ca-
reer. He has wasted but little time in studying,
though always has a ready answer. He is a spe-
cial favorite of Commy, and whenever the "Big

corner him for a conversation. Especially do
they enjoy swapping jokes.
"Abe" is a greatly traveled and widely ac-
quainted individual. He has galloped across the
endless plains of Colorado, and slept through the

the swamps of Georgia. He has breathed in the
smoky city an atmosphere laden with ferric dust,
and he has banquetted with the diplomacy of our nation's capital.
Born in Topeka, Kan., in 1888, on the anniversary of the assassination of the
immortal "Abe," whence his name, he soon migrated to Denver, Col. Next he wan-
dered to the head waters of the White River in the Ozark Mountains in Arka., then
to Springfield, to Carthage, and to the White Plains, Mo., then to Kansas City, to
Chattanooga, Tenn., via Memphis, and finally to the capital of his country, besides
having sojourned for short periods in thirty or more of the forty-six states of our
Union. Why he decided to remain at M. A. C. for so long a time as four years is an
unsolved mystery, but now June is here, and he can again begin his travels.
Possibly we may see him in a few years leading our troops to victory, possibly
we may see him, — but who can fortell his future? "The wind bloweth where it listeth,"
and this is true of "Abe." But no matter where he may go, or what may be his oc-
cupation, our love and good wishes will always follow him.

ever given you the shudders by finding its way
down your neck? Have you ever attempted to
get some needed repose in the professor's ab-
sence, and had your chair suddenly removed
from beneath you? If so, make sure that "Herb"
can prove an alibi before accusing anyone else.
If present, however, you are by no means certain
to convict him. Some times the only evidence

"Herb" increased the population of La Plata,
Charles County, Md., by one on September 5th,
1890. At an early age he moved to College Park,
where he finished his early schooling, entering
M. A. C. in the fall of 1906. Since then he has
made great progress, especially in his chosen
branch, Chemistry. If you ask him how to pre-
pare diethylsulphone-dimethylmethane from ethyl
mercaptan, using dithioethyldimethylmethane as
an intermediate compound, he will probably show
no surprise, but will even
such a bluff at it as will convince you of his wisdom in the matter.
Lieut. White was the first "day dodger" to receive a commission at M. A. C.
and right nobly does he handle the second platoon of C company. Although not one
of the athletes of the school, Herbert made the basketball team last winter, and was
one of its best players.
Like all the day students. Herb leads a dual life. His nights and holidays are
spent at the Experiment Station, attending to the greenhouses, etc. He pays frequent
visits to Berwyn and Riverdale (How we envy his liberty to do so) but if he has
ever left his heart behind him on one of these trips, he has concealed it well. "Herb"
comes from a very good British stock, and from what we have seen of him here we
predict a most successful career as a chemist. May his solutions never be split or
his flasks boil over.

•■♦■ -il later spent much time in Morgantown, West Virginia, and attended the Univer-
sity of West Virginia, in '06. Entering M. A. C. in '07, he soon made many
close friends, and the old barracks would have seemed dead but for "Jimmie's"
ever cheerful songs.
As a corporal in his Sophomore year "Jimmie" did good work and was generally
conceded to be the best drilled man in the battalion.
In athletics his record was most creditable; tho small in stature he held his own
on the football field as well as on the diamond, and had he remained thru the football
season of '11, would without doubt have won his "M."
In scholastic work, also "Jimmie" never failed to accomplish anything that he
undertook. Insect study was his specialty, and few ant hills on the College farm have
escaped his scrutiny. "Jimmie" was always a favorite with "Sy," and whenever his
class wanted concessions from him in regard to holding dances and other social func-
tions, he was appointed as mediator, and, being himself always interested in social
events seldom failed to convince "Sy" of the importance of his argument.
Burns was valuable in the College social world in more ways than one; for he was
also a dexterous and artistic decorator and an expert dancer. There was something
radically wrong if a ball came off at College and he was not there with his fair lady.
We are all heartily sorry to part with our class president and true friend when
"Jimmie" had to leave us in the early winter because of his father's sudden death.
He is now an automobile salesman in Ohio and we are sure will rapidly advance
to a high position in the business world.
Marion Melvin Crisfield, Md.
A progeny of learning. — Sheridan.
ARION MELVIN graduated from Crisfield High School in 'o .. ^ of
nineteen, he and Purniss being in the same class. Both being mathematicians
they took up the civil engineering course at M. A. C. the following fall. "Mil-
waukee" has made a most excellent scholastic record here, none of "Doc. Tol-
lie's" intricate mathematical formulas ever having daunted him, and to hear him read
Dutch you would think him straight from Berlin.
Further Melvin was distinctly a social man, and few mails came without bringing
him sweetly scented letters from Crisfield or Baltimore. Most every Saturday evening
found him enjoying the company of some fair damsel in a nearby town.
Owing to a very serious attack of blood poisoning at the beginning of his Senior
year, Melvin was obliged to drop from the class of '11, but intends to enter next year's
Senior class, and will graduate, we are sure, with high honors.
^^THE BALMY days of June, 1911, are come and with them the closing chapter
i PLin our career as college men. The story of our achievements has been told, the
^^ personalities of our members have been sketched. With the stern reality of parting
upon us there remains for us but the Senior's retrospect and then — farew^ell.
Alma Mater, when we look back upon the four years that we have spent within
your walls, we find much to reflect upon, much to profit by, much to be proud of. We
look back upon a year of initiation as Freshmen into a few of the pleasures, many of the
duties and all — so we thought — of the hardships of college hfe; a year of petty trials
endured, when the routine of military life and the discipHne of tradition-sceptered "Old
Boys" seemed to our untutored flesh, unaccountably hard.
We remember with keenest pleasure a Sophomore year brimful of merrriment and
adventure, when, in the pride and responsibility of our primo-matriculated heritage, we
scorned such purely personal emoluments as distinction in studies and devoted ourselves
heart and soul to running the College.
We became Juniors, developed more individuality with the consciousness that the
time was at hand for us to shape our own ideals and to work with a definite end in view.
We found ourselves. We learned that organized effort in our appointed sphere in col-
lege was productive of greater good both to us and to the College.
With the dignity of Seniority upon us, the promise of reward for four years of effort
looming large before us, lent strength and courage to our convictions.
We find ourselves passing at the outset to mourn the loss of two of our members.
Bi'^ fv -i- ~ J -. fj^g same hand of Fate which brought bereavement to one of our class-
mates and nii^xv^itune to another, may have in store for them a proportionate reward, we
turn undaunted to resume our progress.
Commencement is upon us. We take our diplomas with a feeling that M. A. C.
has given us something for which mere money cannot pay. We feel that a diploma
with the "Maryland Agricultural College" inscribed across its face, means to us vastly
more than so much textbook knowledge, instilled as per catalogue specifications.
True it does not mean that we have had four years of access to the most com-
pletely furnished buildings, the most extensive libraries, the most elaborately equipped
shops, the largest corps of highly paid instructors of any state college in the country.
True we cannot cheer our athletic teams from the bleachers of a magnificent stadium.
No, M. A. C. cannot yet give us this. But there is not one of us graduating from M. A.
C. but appreciates that inestimable value of that which he has received in addition to a
thorough under graduate training. We appreciate the fact that we have been members
of a student body amongst whom the most sacred traditions and customs of the South
have always prevailed. We have been subject to the influence of an Executive who
stands for all that the title, Southern Gentleman, impHes. We have been in intimate
contact with instructors whose determined efforts to aid in the progress of M. A. C. have
been a character moulding inspiration. We have cheered in victory and in defeat athletic
teams formed in the face of difficulties that would have downed the spirit of any but
M. A. C.
This, Alma Mater, is what we have to be thankful for. This it is that, with the
tenderer associations, makes us experience in the hour of parting, some of that bitterness
which prompted the Southern Exile's beautiful poem:
"Farewell to all I have loved so long.
Farewell to my native shore
Let me sing the strain of a sweet old song
I return, I return no more.
And this it is that mingles with our sadness the consolation of knowing that we go
out into the world prepared to bespeak our gratitude to thee in terms of worthy achieve-
'^i^ AVING been nominated by my classmates to penetrate into the midst of the future
^|W and see what Father Time holds in store for the members of the class of 191 I,
'^^T I searched long and diligently for some plausible method of accomplishing this
end ; but for a long time the search was in vain and the future remained as a closed
book to me. Finally having given up in despair, after exhausting every expedient in my
knowledge, I stumbled by mere accident on the coveted object of my search.
Standing on the wharf at Baltimore, I was debating whether or not to cast myself
into the swirling depths and end it all, when my attention was arrested by a small
wizened man, who had just landed from a large German steamer, in company with
several other immigrants. He was a little shriveled up man, remarkable only for the
enormous size of his head, and the ordinary observer would have passed him by with
a casual glance. Moved by some mysterious impulse, a thrill of joy leaped up in me,
for I recognized in him the one who was to give me the key to the future. Resolving
to make immediate use of this opportunity, I accosted the old man and hastily un-
folded my business to him.
"Yes," he said, significantly tapping the small grip which he bore, "I have here
a small stock of the wonderful compound Amino-Benzene, a compound which in the
hands of the great German chemists has attained an importance which can scarcely be
exaggerated. The number of derivitives which may be obtained from this compound is
inconceivable to the uninitiated mind. Starting with benzene I will easily obtain the sub-
stitution product Methyl-Phenyl Hydrazine. By the addition of other reagents this
may be transformed into Potassium-iso-diazo-benzene oxide. From this compound it is
but a step to Diamine Dihydroxyarsenobenzol, and when this compound is obtained I
think we will be in a fair way to obtain the prophetic potion desired."
Naturally when the old man finished speaking, my head was pretty well muddled
with his scientific language. He went to work with great energy to solve the problem
before him. Suffice it to say that he kept his promise and after several months untiring
research, he produced a compound which has enabled me to circumvent the sphinx of
the future and observe the various activities of my classmates.
Finally, all was in readiness. A stenographer was procured with all his necessary
apparatus, and in a propitious moment I imbibed the powerful drug. Detached at onc(!
from its physical shell, my spirit sprung into a hypothetical aeroplane, and started
out on an extensive course of travel. I floated along over the green wooded hills and
finally landed in front of the town hall in the city of Upper Marlboro. I entered and
found the place crowded with prosperous business-like farmers, for it was a meeting
of the Tri-County Farmers' Grange of Southern Maryland. In the president's chair was
a tall man with sandy whiskers, who was vigorously laying down the law, as to the
relative merits of the Jersey and Ayshire breeds of cattle, — it was "Gene" Mudd, of
course, for he was stating his views in just such vociferous determined manner as I had
seen him do many times before in the red hot debates we used to have in Senior class
meetings. On inquiring, I learned that he was ore of the most prosperous and up-to-date
farmers of Southern Maryland, president of the Grange, owner of dozens of creameries,
canning factories, etc., and in fact had become a real magnate in his native community.
The scene was changed. I found myself in a small country church. It was Sun-
day morning and bells were ringing all over the drowsy country side. The people filed
into church and a clear, commanding voice called the meeting to order. Now this
voice sounded familiar to me, and raising my eyes to the pulpit, I received a shock to my
nervous system in beholding the startling apparition of Leland Goodrich True, attired in a
minister's paraphernalia and carrying on the services in the most matter of fact way pos-
sible. Well of all the inconceivable and inexplicable anomahes this certainly was the
worst. Judging from his college career, I would rot have been surprised to find him an
officer in the army, a prize fighter, or a house breaker, but never would I have believed
that in his widely diversified talent he held the makings of a minister.
Strange, indeed, are the workings of destiny, and beyond the ken of human intelli-
gence are its mandates.
The religious atmosphere of the church was suddenly rent with various unseemly
noises. The trampling of countless feet, the yells of men, and the bawling of cattle,
all blended together in one vast echoing medley of sound. A stalwart figure on horse-
back passed by, yelling at the top of his voice and belaboring a rebellious steer with his
lariat. Thru the clouds of dust I recognized the one time familiar features of Harry
Speaks Cobey, rendered almost irdistmguishable by a heavy coat of tan and prairie soil.
Here again the sign posts of the college career were reversed, but the solution was
Soon tiring of the office work which he had taken up on leaving college, Harry had
wisely migrated to Arizona, and had become one of the most successful of the present
day beef producers.
The clouds quickly faded and the atmosphere became overcast, with the golden
haze of a perfect Indian summer day, in the Middletown Valley of Maryland. The
scene was in a large well kept orchard, in which the business of harvesting was rapidly
going forward. The men were hurrying to and fro, picking the apples and packing them
in small crates. Everything showed the stamp of the up-to-date college bred horticul-
turist. Casting about for the founder of so much systematic industry I beheld my old
classmate, Jacob Keller Smith. Sleeves rolled up, pencil and note book in hand, he
was busily directing the activities of the workers in getting the crop ready for market.
He was not too busy, however, to interrupt the work occasionally to rescue certain ob-
streperous members of the younger generation from various predicaments in which they
were continually getting entangled.
Happy and contented in discharging the manifold duties of administering to the
needs of a large fruit farm and of a large and growing family, I left my friend to his
The crowded galleries of the U. S. Senate chamber opened up before me. What
voice is that thundering forth in unmistakable accents the sentiments of Jefferson Davis?
Ah ! It is Lindsay McDonald Silvester, grown into the most accomplished orator of the
Senate, and it was the spell and prestige of his name that had drawn so many attentive
listeners into the galleries today. While at College, Lindsay would have us believe
that his highest ambition was to pursue a further investigation of the Aromatic series of
Hydrocarbons, but having won the medal of the Intercollegiate Oratorical Association
at Western Maryland, he decided that his sphere in life lay in the forum and has fully
vindicated his right to be reckoned among the foremost of the disciples of Demosthenes.
Next the loud discordant sounds of battle are heard. The thundering charge of
cavalry, the rattle of musketry, ard a dull booming of cannon are all around me. But
what is that luminous spot of white bobbing up and down in the tall grass like a jack-
rabbit's tail? As I live it is Atwell Chaney, and a gallant figure he makes, chargmg
at the head of his company, brandishing his saber and shouting encouragement to his
men. But now my spirits began to sirk, for surely he will be killed, dashing so fear-
lessly into the thick of the fray and exposing himself to the shells of the enemy. But
tremble not, gentle friends, for it is only a sham battle and there is no cause for alarm.
Upon inquiry, I learned that Chaney had entered the army on leaving college,
and had been rapidly promoted from second lieutenant to first and then to a captaincy.
From all accounts, he was on the eve of receiving his major's commission, and without
doubt he will be a brigadier-gereral before he retires.
FeeHng rather exhausted from my strenuous exertion, I was glad to stop a while
in the quaint old city of Annapolis. I was not surprised to find here my old friend,
Thomas Davidson, for "Tom" is a democrat, iron-clad and triple plated, and not likely
to wander far from the comfortable shade of the political plum tree. He had at once
espoused the profession of poHtics on leavirg college, and had soon succeeded in landing
a fat poHtical job. He was now enjoying the fruits of industry and busily engaged
in the discharge of his duties; the aforesaid duties consisting apparently of smoking five
cent cigars, while lounging comfortably in a large arm chair with his feet cocked up on
a rolled top desk. "Tom's" motto is "Get next to the man with the pull and work
him for all he is worth."
Cash ! Cash ! the busy hum and bustle of the large department store sprang up
around me. I found myself in one of New York's tallest sky scrapers in a mammoth
department store. I asked to see the manager and was at once referred to the office,
where I found Paul Revere Little. He was surrounded by a crowd of messenger boys
and sales people, all of whom were trying to attract his attention at once. But Paul
valued his time at $10.00 a minute, and only the weightiest matters could demand a small
share of his time. On leaving college, Paul had at once entered the mercantile world, and
he was now doing a larger retail business than any other firm in New York. No
doubt his college experience stood him in good stead, for while there, he was a success-
ful jack-of-all-trades, and would buy or sell anything from a broken watch to a piano.
The pleasing strains of a ball room orchestra filled the air. The scene was in a
large fashionably equipped ball room. Gracefully the dancers glided to and fro in a
waltz. I soon recognized the figure of one of the dancers for it was Joseph William
Kinghorne, engaged in his favorite occupation of looking pretty, an art in which "Baldy"
was always unsurpassed. "What!" I cried, "Will 'Baldy' never give up this butter-fly
existence? Will he never thirk of things more serious than waltzes or minuets?"
He pretends to be an "agriculturist" and is continually stuffing you with scientific
nonsense about his dairy farm, but if you are an acute observer, you will see that "Baldy"
is still pursuing the pleasant vocation of looking pretty and showing the girls a good time.
I entered a large brewery, where the air was everywhere pervaded by the delicious
scent of the hops. A stout, portly man strutted about, directing the work, now and again
stopping to imbibe part of the contents of a large stone jar, standing on a shelf. It was
Arthur Theodore Sonnenberg, and his already generous proportions had been added to
enormously since leaving college, a broad bay window beirg one of the most important
changes. "Sonry" had taken the engineering course here at college, but being possessed
of a delicate constitution (as you may judge by his present appearance) he soon decided
that the brewing business would be better for his health and more congenial to his
taste, and had pursued it very successfully.
In the veldt district of South Africa, I came across a tall sunburnt, masterful man
.directing a gang of scantily clad natives in disposing of the remains of an elephant which
had been killed while making a raid on the rice fields of the plantation. It was Olin Ray
Andrews, and I was not surprised to find him engaged m such a venturesome occupation.
For "Puckam" always was a reckless devil-may-care fellow, and not content to tread
the easy paths of life.
On receiving his diploma, "Puckam" had started farming among the sands and
sedge-grass of his native Eastern Shore. Not satisfied, however, with this quiet humdrum
existence, his roving temperament prompted him to migrate to South Africa where he
engaged in the rice growing business. Here he found bad men and fierce animals enough
to satisfy his fondest dreams, and at the time of my visit was engaged in the congenial
work of subdumg them to suit his own personal taste.
I next found myself on the grand stand at the National Baseball grounds of Chicago.
It was October and the last game of the great championship series was on. Connie
Mack's men had tied the White Sox for the pennant and now in the last inning the score
stood 5 to 4 against the home team. But the bleachers heaved a sigh of relief as
Chicago's surest batter stepped confidently up to the plate. Although his face was
tanned and seasoned by many summers on the diamond, I at once recognized Charles
Cator Furniss. He dusted off the plate with his cap and swatted out a long three bag-
ger with the same snappy swing I had often seen him use in the old days at M. A. C.
Good work "Pop." You have achieved a high ambition, and surely it is no small
thing to reach the top notch of fame in the National American pastime.
A beautiful summer bungalow with a broad veranda and surrounded with waving
palms loomed up before me. Reclining in a large wicker chair was Herbert James
White, surrounded by several negroes ministering to his every want. Altho raised in
the beautiful region of College Park, "Herb" forsook the waving fields of sedge grass
and luxuriant growth of scrub pines and decided that the sunny climate of Porto Rico
would be better for his health. He worked as a chemist for the sugar interests for several
years, but soon branched out and became a sugar magnate himself. Becoming enam-
ored of one of the native belles he had married, and at the time of my visit, had become
the head of a numerous and interesting progeny.
The theory of hard work and plenty of it had never appealed to Walter Hicks Mays
while at college, so I was not at all surprised to find him comfortably ensconced on one
of the South Sea Islands of the Pacific. I found him lying on the grass beneath a
banana tree patiently waiting for the fruit to fall irto his mouth, thus obviating the neces-
sity of his climbing for it. After leaving college, Walter had used his mechanical inge-
nuity in designing a long distance aeroplane and had had it constructed in his back yard
so that he could superinterd the job without going far from home. The machine proved
a grand success. After trying it out, he loaded on enough supplies of all kinds and
steered straight for the land of perpetual spring. He became so enamored with the
long rests at night and midday siestas there in vogue that by the natural selection of nature
his means of locomotion have long since been atrophied.
I found myself in one of those large sight-seeing automobiles going up the great
white way in New York. "Ladies and gentlemen," said the man with the megaphone,
"observe the sign on your left. Here is where you get your information by the yard or
by the barrel. Here is where you find how old Napoleon was when he cut his first
tooth, or how many boxes of jap-a-lac Noah used in building the Ark. Step inside
and see this prodigy of a human encyclopedia for yourselves." Entering the shop, I was
not surprised to find Henry Stabler sole owner and operator, and guaranteeing to furnish
accurate information on any subject put up to him.
At last, Henry had found his proper sphere in life. For at college we never
thought of referring to a text-book or dictionary when Henry was available, and now,
this extraordinary forty-horse power memory is bringing him in $500.00 every day.
I next found myself in a large airship, traveling with incredible swiftness toward
the planet. Mars. You can't imagine my wonder and surprise, for which one of my
classmates I was thinking, could have taken up his abode in this far away corner of the
universe. The mystery was soon to be solved, however, for the first person I saw on dis-
embarking was Howard Roland Devilbiss. "O ho!" I thought, "Now I understand.
Now I can see what you were thinking about when you walked around at college with
your chin inclined upward at an angle of 45 degrees to the horizontal, and forever gazing
at the stars thru half closed eyes. You were dreaming of the planets and of the
conquest you were planning to make in those upper worlds. So this has been the out-
come of your meditations."
In the botany laboratory of the Carnegie Institute of Chicago, I came across a
stoop-shouldered wizened man bent over a microscope and peering intently thru the eye
piece. His face was distorted into a terrible grimace while looking thru the instrument,
and when he looked up, I was barely able to recognize my old classmate Paul Ridout
Barrows, for his face did not return to its normal expression, but remained all on one
side, as it were, one eye half closed, and mouth twisted up into an ugly leer. "What
a pity!" I thought, "A comely youth he was when I knew him and fair as the flowers
of May." Despite his ungainly appearance, however, Paul was regarded as one of
the most noted botanists in the country, and had several M. S's., and Ph. D.'s, at-
tached to his signature. His "Treatise on the Fungus Diseases Peculiar to the Inter-
nal Digestive Apparatus of the Oak Tree" was regarded as the last word upon the
subject and had won him a high place in the botanist's hall of fame.
"Council for the defence will now take the stand." I found myself in a crowded
court room, eagerly waiting to hear the lawyer begin his defense of the double-dyed
criminal in the prisoner's dock, for I recognized him (the lawyer of course) as David
Wilson Glass. "D. W." proceeded with his argument and soon made himself master
of the situation. The ladies in the galleries began to use their handkerchiefs very freely
and the jury was visibly impressed. I began to have a certain respect for the prisoner,
altho my better judgment told me he was guilty seven times over.
Glass won his case of course, and m fact, of the many cases which he had handled
he had never been known to lose one. "O, yes," I thought, "You may be a great lawyer
now, but we of the class of 1911 can tell of the first case you ever undertook, and which
stirred your ambition to higher things. I refer to the notorious case of 'Haas, versus
the Senior Class' where you so nobly defended the much threatened senior graft against
a base attack."
My spirit was row drawn involuntarily to a thriving manufacturing town in
Pennsylvania. I floated above an immense chemical factory which seems strangely
famiHar, tho I was sure I had never seen it before. On the front of one of the build-
ings was a large sign reading "The Chemical Works of ," and then followed
the facsimile of a familiar looking signature, but this was whisked away before I could
decipher it. Once more I traveled thru the mist of the intervening years and back to
June 1911. The effect of the drug had passed off, and the little man who had given me
this brief mastery of Father Time had gone, I know not where.
My true friends and classmates, now that our predestination has been revealed to
us let us henceforth earnestly strive to the end that 1930 may not see our records
wanting in the least degree.

3^unior Class Historg
^4.^1^ ES. That's it. Turn to your left." Thus we are directed by a uniformed
chap to the Officer of the Day.
It is our purpose to have him show us around the College and to point out
to us the members of the Junior Class. Upon stating our mission he seems glad
to accompany us, after reaching desperately over a table for his white gloves and un-
fortunately entangling his sword in his sash. But his enthusiasm smothers his embarrass-
ment, and smilingly he leads the way.
He has preceded us thru the open doorway and awaits us upon the small porch out-
"You are in luck for we have not long to wait." Looking in the direction indi-
cated, we see marchmg toward us a group of three young farmers. "Here we have
the Two Year Horticultural Class, as you may have surmised from the bulging of their
blouses, and the red apples shining out of their pockets. They are very ambitious,
always making the best of their opportunities.
"The chap leading the right file is Towers, 'Bush' for short. Yes, he is still
dreaming. Ever at the old game since he acquired it last year down in the guard room.
Now, if you wish a walking information bureau on subjects 'fowl' in their purest)
terms, he will stand the test. Alongside of him behold the pride of the Alley-Haas.
Of course those apples are for experimental purposes which he conducts in his room,
alone. But he has been hard pushed by Malcolm, for he must supply all the 'Dodgers'
which he does — not."
The O. D. Warns us to drink in the pure oxygen for we are about to brave the
perilous den of gases, "Doc" Stone's haven.
From behind an irregular mass of twisted glass tubes and bottles we see a red
head bob forth, then a smile, and we have the anarchist, Myron's Chemical Reference
Book, "Red's" Dennis. "Hello fellows. Ain't this life? Who's your friend? Ha!
Ha! say, look at 'Bob.' He's all smeared with jism. Ha! Ha! His retort busted."
Tolson, mumbling his prayers stalks over. "Oh just a little accident. That red
headed jay got me balled up. Peach of a mess now." This is "Bob" T., the big gun
of the class.
He can make more noise and say less than any man in the College, but as a deba-
ter, he is unsurpassed. It is he who starts the ball roUing. If you want to change
the course of the milky way, ask him to bring it up at next class meeting. It will be
The O. D. notices our withered looks and proves himself a hero when he proposes
to cut our visit short.
Now we are off to the football field, for practice is in full swing. "Say you fellows,
fall down on that ball. Don't run after it as tho it were a greased pig." This in gruff
tones from Capt. Kemp. He is not only our leader in football but always holds his own
in everything worthy of his attention. If his positions were salaried he would today own
all of Charles County. But for all his fame, his head has not been turned and to our
knowledge, he has so far eluded Cupid's darts. His one and only love is "Dear Old
"Hello, Mudd. What makes you late today? Been snoozing since dinner, ch?
This is K. Mudd, the pride of the class and of B Co. Wait until you see him go thru
that line, you'll bet its paper. I'll wager he is even now dreaming of the latest baseball
and wrestling dope. No, he is not selecting the subject of his next theme. He never
does until the morning of.
"Say, Mudd, where's the latest book on Concrete Work that 'Doc' loaned us?
You're a peach to take it to bed and leave it there." This from "Bill" Grace, our
Theologian, Mathematician, and one of "Doc's" admirer. His specialties are concrete
work and ripe fruit. He must be off for a hike for I see his rule in his pocket and that
means there is a new bridge somewhere near.
"Well, we leave the football field and step over to the Experiment Station." Here
we find the Agricultural Class following "Grasshopper" like so many flies. Continuing
behind him, we come to the cow barn, their glory.
The gentleman leaning against the door is "Rooky" Morris, he of the winged foot.
Oh, yes, he's small, but his talk ard his achievements are big. Hear him tell "Doc"
Woodward how he won his last race. "Doc" is our special adviser on Summer Resorts.
He has traveled extensively and knows every railroad tie between here and Frisco, — be-
cause. But as a basketball player he is unsurprassed. He successfully rounded out our
first Varsity Team, and helped to win some close games. "Doc" is certainly the prince
of good fellows.
"Say, professor, why is this a cowa ." "Close your face, Anderson. Don't
you know yet, 'Why is a cow?' This witty retort from Goeltz to our prize essayist,
Anderson. Goeltz is ever ready to say something, and when he is not boasting N. Y.,
The Atlee R. R., or his new boardmg house, he is roastmg some one or else praising
his old friend, "Commy." He is the pioneer of the "latter day day-dodgers," and to
him we must give the credit of helping "Doc" introduce Basketball.
But of Anderson, who has now quieted for a minute? We have already heard
tliru the papers. Yes, that's the chap who turned twenty-five simoleons of cold cash
for some of his cheap bovine Hterature. That Httle chap near the queen calf is Stanton
of Rocky Mountain fame. He is "Socks" guardian angel, but he failed in his duty
one night last Spring.
"Hello, Judge!" This is "Judge" Crane, our boy wonder and "C" Co.'s special
delight. He can make more noise with a bugle for a kid of his size than a twelve-inch gun
could make in a week.
"Well, Mac, how's business today?" McGinnis is our hermit. He thinks of the
big things and we eat them.
Yes, those two chaps are very industrious but along very different lines. Trax after
the goods, but Taylor, well, he is at present well known in the 'Ville.
From here we follow the O. D. and come to the Electric Lab. From inside
we hear a buzzing, a thumping, and then some scrapping. Entering, we discover that
the din has been caused by the triumvirate, Furst, Miller and Burrier practicing for the
Band. Burrier is at the old job of drilling holes. Furst is busy over Myron's pet
lathe, and Miller is stringing wires. Furst is the only Electrician in the class. He is
Creese's right hand man, and our advisor on matters electrical. Some day he'll own
Mt. Clare. Burrier is the life of the crowd. It is a toss up between him and Clark
as to which makes the most noise. He keeps mum about some things however, — is he
not treasurer of the Rossbourg Club? Miller appears to be wiring, but I'll bet it is a
wireless to Lutherville. He is noted as the most handsome man in the class, but never
on a straight ticket.
Let us step over and interview these two chaps so busily engaged over at the
switchboard. The dark haired "pusson" is Clark, Dynamite. See that green backed
book in his pocket, tickets to Laurel. He uses them on Friday nights, Saturday nights,
and also on Sundays. If you wish to hear some telelogical cuss-words, tickle him.
His companion "Sonny" is our weather man. If it is going to rain he will be here,
but if the weather is good enough to play ball he'll remain away. Lately, however,
he has taken a brace; arjd now he can almost answer a question without a hitch.
Let us step over to the machine shop. Here we find "Buck" Warthen, "Dope"
Warfield, and "Shush" Staley, dirty, begrimed, but the pride of "Cat's" heart. "Buck"
is our rapid fire mathematician. He can bluff "Doc Tollie" better than any Calculus
fiend alive. He is one of the smitten ones, however, as his frequent visits to Kensing-
ton indicate. "Dopey" is our snooze artist. He has been known to sleep at his lathe,
and when it comes to squaring a block, he has entirely given up.
"Ship ahoy! there. Man the mizzen mast, men. Draw in the main sail, ye lub-
bers!" This is but one of Staley's outbursts. He has had water on the brain ever
since he crossed the great wet. He shipped as chief machinist, but after two days out
was relegated to the ranks of oiler, ard ever since his tongue has shown it. He is in-
deed "Commy's" pet, and has great pull with the Czar. His chief ambition is to build
a bridge, own a railroad, and hand one to "Commy."
"Hello, what is all that commotion in 'Doc Tollie's' office?" Entering
we find him explaining curoes to his Junior proteges. The bean-pole on the radiator
is Lednum, the crack wit of the class. The grin of his is perpetual ard were it not for
Kis mug he would be consiciered handsome. He is "Doc's" bell-hop and can find a
book in a million. Along side of him is Roby, the star pohtician of the class. He
can argue for hours, and because of his deep philosophy, has never been understood.
His arguments are vague, but his tobacco is O. K. He and Rupple are the bright stars
of that section, but "Rup" got wise early and left the field to Roby. Ruppel was the
"Beau Brummel" of our ranks, bet he's a heart smasher at P. M. C.
The bunch coming out of the Science Hall have just finished their "bugology"
work. Benson, the gentleman on the right, is another of the W. C. admirers. Most of
his letters are postmarked Lutherville and we adjudge him smitten. He is another of
our learned (?) "Dutch" scholars. The dark chap is our Southern friend, Martinez,
from the land of Indians and Spanish-speaking damsels. The third companion is Duckett
the all-around star-performer in football, baseball, track and basketball. He is our
captain in Track, and hopes to score his second victory on the relay team when they run
at Philadelphia. We all wish his team luck, for so far it has made an enviable record
among College athletics.
"Hello, Martz. Now, whoa, old boy, don't kick over the traces, now there's a
nice young fellow!" This is the way "Socks" Trimble usually greets "E. Z." Martz,
and the fervor of their handshake goes to show the love they hold for each other. "Socks"
is the big noise of the class. He is our greatest fakir, peddler, con-game man, and all-
round get-rich-quick schemer. Martz is "Doc Tollie's" aid in Calculus, and to Prof.
Spence is quite a reference book.
The two chaps leaving the main building are "Bill" White and Allen. "Bill"
is quite a Physicist. He and Prof. Creese are responsible for all of this trouble of ours,
and some day College Park is going to lose one of her favorite sons, but never from
over study. Allen, his companion, is our gymnast. It is quite a treat to see him turn
his wonderful, double acting, three-phase, triple-expansion, handspring. It would make
Apollo look sick.
"Friends, Romans and Countrymen, lend me ." "No, No, No, that's not it.
You are too slow. Watch me. Friends, R ." No that is not a rat reciting his
history lesson for the benefit of a few "old boys," it is our orator, McBride, trying in
vain to prepare himself for the next Oratorical Contest. The gentle reminder has come
from Prof. Richardson, his coach. "Mac" may some day fill a vacancy in the Senate
if he doesn't leave that foolishness alone. We have frequently warned him but he
persists in * spieling." Upon the subject of Immigration he even has Prof. Bomberger
at his mercy, not to mention the U. S. Authorities.
The dark haired chap intently listening even tho a perfect target for a water bag,
is Mr. Gill, our chemist. "GiUie" joined us this year, but already he can count the
stars on Stone's map. He and Prof. Creese seem to get along perfectly, judging from
the amount of questions passing between them. He has established himself as a soHd
rock in the Physics Lab.
"But who is that so intently waiting with a water-vessel?" Why it is Posey, our
invincible First-Sergeant always up to tricks. The little "Dutch" book which he has in
his hand is as dear to him as his pocketbook, much Hghtened by "Senior Graft and
Co.'s" Yes he is a football player of note, this being his third year on the 'Varsity.
Notice his grin.
"You have now met every member of the Junior class, but one. Of myself I can
After seeing us to the Reception Hall the O. D. took his leave.
Upon inquiry w^e found ourselves to be the victims of a schemer, for the fictitious
O D. turns out to be O'Connor, a mere Junior. He had become aware of our plans
and seized the opportunity when the official O. D. happened to be away.
But with regrets we will leave the Junior class to meet again next year.

ELL! HERE we are again. This time we step to the front as Sophomores.
Hark! what is that strange noise issuing from room 4? Be not disturbed
Gentle Reader, it is only but the voice of approval from the mighty class of 1913.
Dr. Osier is addressing them on "The Equality of the Rights of Sophomores."
This is how we started out as Sophomores. Many troubles arose but they all
quailed when the Mighty Voice of 1913 was heard. The thunderous peals of this
mighty voice caused many a haughty demigod (?) to fall trembling from his throne.
After fully establishirg ourselves we acted as a "Committee of the Whole" to wait
upon the "rats" and see what could be done for their entertainment. Several meetings
were held for the sole purpose of benefitting the aforesaid "rats" and making things
bright for them. What a ruddy complexion they had when they left our company!
Numerous visits were paid to their rooms for the purpose of brightening them
up. But alas! I am afraid that our earnest endeavors were rot fully appreciated.
Never before had such a bunch of "rodents" been seen to enter the portals of
M. A. C. They had rot been under our care and guidance long, however, before
trouble arose. A mutiny was started by the bipeds, but had not gotten fully under way
before, by a practical demonstration with the "Staff of Life," we showed them how
fooHsh it was to continue.
We, the never failing class, undertook to explain the art of war to the new comers.
Broom drills were held in the halls for their special benefit. Now and then this was
varied by a broom fight on the campus. Many of the brooms were broken but most of
them in some mysterious way disappeared and were never again seen — by the "rats."
During the winter months the "Chanticleer" style of suits prevailed among the
"rats." For particulars see occupant of 47 O. B.
Do not draw a conclusion from this that all of our time has thus been taken up.
In studies we have pushed to the front. With such men as Davis, Russell and Koehler
in the class we will always shine in our scholastic work. Things would be better but —
"the books are wrong." In athletics, also, we have been right there with the goods.
Some of the pick of the teams have come from the Sophomore Class. We see the
bar-ner on Field Day emblazoned with the numerals of 1913. Also we have every
chance of landing the medal in the tennis tournament in our class.
We are at present engaged in one of the biggest undertakings ever started by any
Sophomore Class at M. A. C. This is the introduction and the estabhshmert of a fixed
set of rules for the government of "rats." This method is decidely an advance over
the old way, and gives the "rats" a chance. These regulations are now firmly estab-
lished and mainly through the efforts of old 1913.
In "fussing" we are in the leading rank, and it can be truthfully said that this class
leads in the sphere of social affairs. Riverdale has been startled by some rumors that
have just reached her ears. It has been reported that there is a plot on foot to blow
up that place. It is needless to say that none of the Sophomores know a thing about it.
I shall not delve farther into the history of this class. A few of our classmates
have left us. Hard study at the right time with a plenty of fun in between times has
made this year one to be looked back upon with joy by every member of this class. May
the records of this class as Sophomores never be lowered in coming years.
All hail to the Class of 1913.

I|tfit0ra of tl|0 OlkBB of 1914
3T WAS in the balmy days of early autumn, that we the class of 1914, made our
debut into M. A. C. Durir.g that first walk from the station to the College, how
our minds were crowded with a multitude of pleasant thoughts of our homes,
which seemed doubly dear to us.
The first few days of our college life were indeed days for all of us, days which
we look back upon now with feelings of great pleasure. Everything was so new, the
athletic field, the drill ground, and the manner of social life among the students, all
seemed very strange, indeed.
We were beginning to enjoy life at M. A. C. and gloried in our new found friends.
But, alas! this happy state of existence was not to continue for long. Clouds were
gathering on the horizon where heretofore all had been sunshine. Ah, cruel Fate!
The apparent good heartendness of the sophomores was only a hollow mockery, used to
hide the real nature of their feelings toward us.
When gentle memory withdraws the veil of the past and we are again in fancy,
again permitted to live over the days that followed the sophomores' showing themselves
as they really were, how our hearts burn within us at the very thought of it.
How well we remember the days of the rat meeting, the cold shower, and the
smooth, hard, paddle! Never will we forget the rare jokes of the cruel, heartless sopho-
more! How they took delight in humiliating us before our fellow students!
However, after a short time the sophomores tired of their cruel sport, and it was
then that we began to take notice of our surroundings, and found that there are many
pleasant phases of college life, which we had heretofore entirely overlooked.
Once accustomed to our new surroundings, time borrowed wings, and before we real-
ized it, Hallowe'en was at hand. That night class enmity was forgotten, and sopho-
mores joined hand-in-hand with freshmen to celebrate. The usual Hallowe'en pranks
were successfully perpetrated, and a number of new ones were played upon innocents.
One feature of the night's work was the hearty way in which two of our classmates
responded to the urgent call of the citizens of Hyattsville for donations to the fund
reserved by that town for laying cement walks.
The third term has been the most pleasant of all, for with good weather, plenty
of athletics, and studies in proportion, the time fairly flew. The Easter vacation, which
came in the early part of this term was indeed a pleasant break after the long period of
solid study during the winter term. Time passed rapidly, and we soon found ourselves
preparing for the final examinations in the first week of June. These dreaded and
much-feared exams over, we were ready to enter into the pleasures of the last week.
The pleasures of this week were truly pleasant and interesting, and when they were over,
we were ready to pack our trunks for home.

^y^ O MATTER how patriotic a man may be, his services will be practically
^-51 useless in time of war unless he has been trained to be a soldier. Nearly all of
^' ^ the great countries of the world obtain this result by maintaining a large standing
army, and compulsory army service, but this is not the policy of the United States Gov-
ernment. Instead, our government has endowed a number of schools and colleges, and
stationed at each one a military instructor, with the provision that each and every student
of these colleges receive a miHtary training, both practical and theoretical. M. A. C.
is one of these colleges. The men obtain the practical knowledge of drill and the arts
of war on the parade ground under the able instruction of Capt. Edgar T. Conley, of
the 1 5th Infantry, and their theoretical knowledge is taught them in a series of lectures.
Every graduate receives instruction in I, Infantry Drill Regulations; 2, Field
Service Regulations; 3, Guard Mount; 4, Firing Regulations; 5, Practical Military
Engineering; 6, Bayonet Exercise; 7, Visible Signaling; 8, Butts Rifle Drill to Music;
9, Construction of hasty entrenchments lying, kneeling, and standing, with the use of
rivetting materials; 10, Construction of Spar, Scarp, King Post, Single Sling, Two
Legged Trestle, Single and Double Lock Bridges ; 11, construction of high and low
wire entanglements; 12, First aid to the injured; 13, Road sketching and map making.
This practical instruction is aided by a series of lectures on tactical subjects under Capt.
Under the classification of the war department all colleges in this country in which
military science is taught are divided into a number of classes; such as A; B; BA. M.
A. C. falls into the BA class.
Class A includes all schools which are especially military, whose students are al-
ways in uniform, and in which military discipline is constantly maintained.
Class B includes State land grant colleges established by the Morrill Act, in which
military science is taught.
Class B A includes all colleges of the latter class which attain sufficient proficiency
to be included in class A. In addition to M. A. C. there are only five other land
grant colleges in our country in class B A.
Besides this classification there is a class that is called by all the colleges the "Big
Ten." This class is composed of ten of the colleges in which the mihtary training and
discipline has been judged most proficient by an inspector detailed by the government.
In 1910 M. A. C. was the only land grant college to be included in this "Big Ten."
From each of the "Big Ten" colleges the government will allow one graduate each
year to attend the United States Army as a second lieutenant with only a physical exam-
ination. In 1910 M. A. C. was represented by Cadet Major O. H. Saunders, now
Second Lieutenant of the 25th Infantry, stationed at Spokane.
The high standing of our military department is due to the untiring efforts of Capt.
Conley. We are distressed to learn that his detail at M. A. C. expires in September
1911, and that he will not be with us for another year. Let us hope that we will be
given ar,other military instructor who will keep M. A. C. in the place which she now
occupies in the ranks of the military schools of the United States.
Crip to ^tump j^ecfe
TUMP Neck! lAh! what a wealth of memories clusters around that name,) for the
forty members of the 1910 Rifle Team. What an expresssion of injured inno-
cence crosses the face of the sandy haired first sergeant as you ask him just what
subtle influence of a Charles County moon it is that lures one into a five mile
cross country stroll, to return in the wee sma' hours with a wealth of experience which
his tent must share at the expense of the camp's peaceful slumber.
How instinctively that corporal rubs his neck as you recall the night he spent on
an earthen tent floor. Mr. Crapster would have been willing to have the starch taken
out of him that day.
And how we breathe fervent benedictions on Mrs. Moore as we think of that Marine
Corps grub and wonder how we survived it. Truly hunger is the best sauce.
It was on the 27th of May that we lined up on the walk in front of the barracks
to be inspected for the necessary equipment which consisted of a Krag, a blanket, a
toothbrush, and $1.40. Taking the trolley to the Navy Yard at Washington, we
made the rest of the trip on a little power boat about 50 feet by 4. Having placed our
suitcases in the cabin and ourselves wherever there wasn't anybody else, we proceeded
to do the Potomac with "Pig Hattor, official guide to Prince George, and Posey, for
Charles County. In their element? The fish weren't in it with either of the above
gentlemen that day.
Arrivirg at Stump Neck, with the friendly help of the Marines we soon had a
row of tents erected and everybody ready for bed before the lights "blinked."
The next two days were spent on the range firing at 200, 300 and 500 yards,
several of the cadets qualifying for marksman's buttons. Mr. Chaney won the club
medal for marksman's hits.
N JUNE 10th, 1910, the M. A. C. battalion went "in castra" on the campus.
For more than a week it had rained daily, and consequently the campus was a sea
of mud, but our Commandant had promulgated the order that we must camp, so
camp we did. Our first intention was to put our mattresses on the ground, but
owing to the extreme dampness we were allowed to carry our beds with us. The tents
were finally gotten up after much trouble, and not a little instruction from the Com-
mandant, about four o'clock in the afternoon, and then it began to rain again.
On account of the rain we did not get our suppers in camp, but came back to the
mess hall in the barracks. After supper we returned to camp, and the guard was
posted, with Sergt. Chaney as sergeant of the guard.
By this time night had fallen, "Call to Quarters" had sounded, and lights began
to appear in tents. Soon a Hght was seen moving from one tent to another, and it
caught Chaney's eye: Say, you there with the light, what do you mean by being out of
your tent after 'Call to Quarters?' Who are you, anyway, and what do you want?"
"It is only Capt. Silvester come over to see how the boys are getting along," was
"Oh, I beg your pardon. Captain, I did not know who it was."
"That's all right, Mr. Chaney, replied the President, anything goes tonight, any-
thing." And then quiet again reigned. Soon the lights began to go out one by one,
until the camp was finally wrapped in slumber.
The next day it rained. The Battalion was formed in camp and marched to the
barracks for breakfast, and the majority of us stayed in the barracks until after supper.
Then, as the rain had ceased we went back to camp and gathered around a big camp fire
in front of "Chief" Tydings' tent where we sang songs and told stories until far into
the night. At last we went to our tents and to bed, but not to sleep, for about this
time a hilarious crowd came into camp, having just returned from Washington. Finally
they, too, went to bed, and the camp was silert once more.
The next day it rained! Marched to the barracks for breakfast and as it was
Sunday, and the day for the Baccalaureate sermon, again we stayed in the barracks
until night. Sunday night in canrp was a little more quiet, because many of us were
tired and sleepy, so the camp was soon dark, and the men wrapped in slumber. And
the next day it rained ! ! We broke camp. This time to come back to the barracks
and stayed for good. How good it did feel to be on good solid floors again instead of
mud, mud, nothing but mud.
This year we go into camp again, but our prayers are for clear weather, because if
there is any place on earth more conducive to homesickness than a dark tent, with mud
for a floor, and with the rain dropping on the tent roof, and sometimes thru it, has yet to
be found. However, floors have been made for our tents this year, and it is to be
hoped that we will be far more comfortable than we were in our last year's camp.

ANOTHER year has been added to the age of the M. A. C. Cadet Band, and
it is beginring to shed its infant clothes and take its place among the full fledged
bands of the state. Much of the credit of this is due to the hard work of Mr.
L. G. Smith, its indefatigable leader, whose patience hets stood many a severe
test while bringing the members to their present efficiency as Musicians.
When the Band was first put upon the Campus three years ago it was as an exper-
iment, but time has proved the wisdom of the trial, ard today the Band is one of the
fixtures of M. A. C. Its stirring rotes when playing for the battalion, has added grace
and precision to their movements, which it would not have attained. When playing on
the Athletic Field, how they cheer the weary limbs and add additional vim to the fainting
heart, causing the athlete to make one more effort to win the prize.
Who can tell what the future may have in store for some of the musicians of the
Bard? "Music hath charms" is a quotation in which there is much truth and breadth
of meanmg. By the studious work of the cadets in following the instructions of their
leader, who has taught them to bring harrrory out of discord, by combining the notes
of the Cornet, Bass ard Tenor Horns with the clanging of the Cymbals and the pound-
irg of the Drums, there is ro way of predictmg the harmonizing effect the three years
of study may have upon the cadets of the Band. It has just started on its career and
time will only tell of the future work that may be built upon the foundation that has
been so carefully laid by the hard work of both leader and cadet.
The thoughts of its cheering tones will ever bring pleasant memories to the class of
1911, as the years roll by, ard may its days of usefulness grow brighter in the history
of our M. A. C. until the Great Leader of the Universe calls us to our "Home, Sweet
ANOTHER year has been added to the history of our M. A. C. All of the
various departments of Science have kept step with the tune of advance, but in no
instance has the advance been so marked as in one of the departments under Mr.
L. G. Smith, who through his love of Music, has taken the "Infant Orchestra,"
and by arduous labor on the part of himself and the Cadet Members has brought it to
the front rank of College Orchestras.
Instead of dropping down to the Plantation Medleys and Rag Time Music of the
"Coon Songs" of the day, they have stepped upon the platform of the Chapel and added
to the beauty and solemnity of the Y. M. C. A. services, those soul inspiring strains,
that have helped to bring peace and quiet thought to change the monotony of the stu-
As the Summer breezes waft the sweet sounds of Music across the Campus, the
Hstener feels like reclining at his ease upon the green sward, and letting his soul go out with
the pleasant memories brought to him by the commingling of the notes as they fall from
the combined instruments of the players. Mr. Smith's name is not classed with the list
of Professors of the Faculty, yet he deserves no less credit for the manner in which
he takes the Raw Material as it comes to him, discovers the Musical Talent, and then
by constant drill brings out the finished article, urtil by the combination of wind and
stringed instruments he has an accomplished Orchestra, as the M. A. C. lovers of Music
will bear witness.

NEVER was there a time when the industrial activities of the world demanded
peace as now. Certainly, there never was a time when the foes of war were
more busily engaged in the propaganda of peace. Notwithstanding the fact that
peace is world wide, that every industrial sign points toward the desirability of
its continued maintenance, and that civiHzation seems to have reached a point where war
is unthinkable, yet rumors of war still arise and challenge the world's industry and its
highest civilized development. These rumors circle the globe. They are manifest in
South America ; Europe is not free from them ; even China, asleep for centuries, is aroused
and is now preparing by her ov/n miHtary strength to defend her territory against further
aggression. Nor is the United States exempt from mention in these rumors, on the
contrary she looms large in nearly all of them. The interest of the world is now center-
ed in the Pacific Ocean, and what may occur there during the next half century no
man is wise enough to say, but no prophet is needed to assure us that in whatever does
take place we shall be unavoidably involved. Our possessions are now stretching across
the western sea to the far eastern countries, and our trade relations are such that no change
can take place in the Orient without our feeling its effect.
Just as some men achieve leadership among their fellows, so some men achieve
leadership among nations, which in truth, are but aggregations of men. Whether or
not it was the design of those who planned this government, whether or not it was dreamed
of by those who gave their Hves and labors, that this nation might prosper and develop,
the fact remains that we have attained a position among the leading powers of the
world. But is our position secure?
We feel proud of our strength. We like to believe ourselves invincible. The
knowledge that victory has rested with us to the end in every war we have waged is proof
to us, in our bhndness, that victory will always rest with us to the end. I hope it may,
but as conditions exist, I do not believe it will. We are unprepared for war, and it is
now that we hear the Pacific States cry out for protection.
In the midst of peace it is difficult to realize the possibility of war. It is easy to
see the cost, and the folly of war. It is easy to show how every difference can be settled
without resort to arms.
There never before was a time when nations were so concerned with keeping them-
selves in condition to maintain their rights by force.
There never was a time when it was so evident, that in peace we must prepare for
war, and that the preparation for war is the surest way to prevent it.
Admitting war anywhere, admits it possible with us. There are those who beheve
that foreign invasion of our country in force enough to secure a foothold not only improb-
able, but impossible. There are those who believe otherwise. I believe that this coun-
try can be invaded by a force not only large enough to secure a foothold; but a hold
from which it would be impossible to dislodge them. I shall go so far as to say that I
believe a war possible which might result in the Pacific States becoming foreign territory.
When I make such a statement, I realize I trespass upon the credulity of those who hear
What of our magnificent navy? it may be asked, and how could any nation transport
troops and land them on our shores in the face of that great armada?
What, of the coast defense, that we have been steadily instalHng for the past
twenty years? Admitting our navy, defeated or avoided now would it be possible for
any foreign power to land troops on our shores in face of the fire of those great guns
embanked to protect our harbors. And again, what of the national army, regulars and
militia, innumerable armies of volunteers, citizen-soldier, ready at the first sign of hostility
to spring to the protection of the flag which waves above them? And finally, admitting
all these obstacles passed, admitting a foreign power of greater size than it would be
possible to transport to our shores; what of the patriotism, that is in the heart of every
true American citizen? How long would they endure this humihation? Would not
the entire manhood of the country march from coast to coast if necessary, to push
the invading army back into the sea and wrest from it the American soil they had at-
tempted to occupy?
Yes, these things may be true — but after our navy has done its best, and after the
patriotism of our citizens has accomplished wonderful things — even then, our country will
lie unprotected to a foreign foe.
Let us consider our navy in regard to the invasion of the Pacific Coast.
1 . Our navy must be in the Pacific waters, or else must be sent there when
invasion is threatened, and must arrive in time to intercept the enemies fleet.
2. Assuming our navy in the Pacific waters it must not only annihilate the op-
posing fleet but must avoid annihilation itself.
To engage the enemy our fleet would have to lie along the Pacific Coast and await
his arrival, or else seek and fight him wherever found. To leave the Pacific Coast
on such a venture would require bases under an American flag where supplies could be
obtained and repairs made. By doing this, it would demand control of Alaska, the
Hawaiian Islands, the Philippines, and other possessions in the Pacific. The state of
defense of these possessions is known to all of us. If in the Philippines, it could not
protect the Hawaiian Islands or Alaska, and conversely, if in the Hawaiian Islands it
could not protect the Philippines.
Assuming our navy altogether in the Pacific, it leaves the Atlantic Coast entirely
undefended, and the enemy could come thru and attack us by way of Suez Canal. On
the other hand, if it were all in the Atlantic, it would leave the Pacific Coast completely
exposed to invasion.
On a voyage counted remarkable in naval annals, the Oregon took three months in
1 898 to sail from Puget Sound to Key West. Over half the voyage was accomplished
before the DECLARATION OF WAR when fuel and supplies could be obtained at
nearly every foreign port. In time of peace it took four months, for all that is best of our
navy to make the journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific border. Could this be re-
peated, or could the time be improved upon? A Pacific power would still have three
or four months in which to execute its designs against our coast before the interfer-
ence of our navy could possibly occur.
Until the completion of the Panama Canal, at least, the transfer of our navy from
the Atlantic to the Pacific in time of war would be practically impossible, certainly so,
unless we violated the strongest principles of International Law and forced nearly every
South American Nation into war, either with us or against us.
Only two years ago when our fleet circled the world, thirty foreign transports were
chartered, and foreign ports were made use of. This would be impossible in time of
war. It would be absolutely impossible to have two fleets, one in the Pacific and one
in the Atlantic. It would be decidedly absurd to divide our fleet and run the risk of its
entire destruction. How can our navy protect us?
That our coast fortification is an important element of defense under certain condi-
tions, is not to be doubted. But as a rule, take them as you may, they are a mere
waste of money in construction and may prove an elemeat of weakness rather than
strength to our nation. Gen. Story, chief of the Artillery, says, the sole function of such
fortification is to defend a fort against direct naval attack. Against an enemy powerful
enough to place a force on land it has no defensive value, and may prove a means of
weakness, rather than strength to our nation, as did Port Arthur to Russia.
Since 1812, altho two foreign wars and one civil conflict have been stamped upon
the pages of American history, if we except the attack on Fort Sumter and a few of
the other harbor fortifications of the Confederate States, not a hostile shot has ever been
fired either at or from the coast defense of the United States, The only object of such
defenses is to prevent the bombardment or capture of protected cities by the enemies
fleet, or the debarkation of troops and supplies within a protected harbor. But under
the Hague Convention, bombardment is no longer permissible.
No navy, however strong is going to run the risk of destruction that would follow
approach near enough to make its own fire of serious importance. The historic cases
where coast defenses have succumbed to purely naval attack may be counted on the fingers
of one hand.
The naval attack on Port Arthur never troubled the besieged, and it was purely
the land attack which caused Port Arthur to surrender. The case with us is vastly
different. Our coast defenses are not fortresses, standing at the sea front of our large
cities, but these defenses invite attack that otherwise would not occur. No commander is
going to order his troops to come m contact with the deadly fire of these guns. For
an invading army to pass Golden Gate and land in San Francisco is doubtless impossi-
ble, but for it to land at Monterey, Bodego Bay, or Santa Cruse, and' take San Fran-
cisco from the rear, is not only feasible for any power possessing the ships and men, but
presents no difficulty.
Since 1 886> we have spent over one hundred millions of dollars for Coast Defense.
Had we spent this money for protection in some other way, we would be in far better
position today to resist invasion. Japan has, it is well known, over one million subjects
who are trained soldiers. Her standing army and reserves alone number about 3-4 of a
million. She has arms and equipment in readiness for this immense army. She con-
trols the seas transportation and can land two hundred thousand troops on our shores
within from three to six weeks. Thirty thousand well trained troops in position might
easily prevent them from landing, but unless actually in position this advantage does not
hold true. The Pacific Coast Hes exposed to the enemy for more than 1 500 miles.
Transportation of troops from Oregon, Washington, and California could not hold the
enemy m check unless the point were known where they intended to attack. We can
put in the field today, a number of men scarcely larger than we could, prior to tha
(In every war ever fought, the honors go to the man in the fighting Hne, and
victory was won as in every other war, not by the side possessing the best weapons,
not by the side possessing the most wealth, not by the side possessing the most men,
but by the power that has best prepared its men for the strain of battle. A few
trained men may prevent invasion where millions of untrained men could not drive the
invaders out. We have a few of these men, but not enough.
And what of the transportation of these inland troops to the coast, we are asked.
For the inland transportation of troops we have depended upon less than a half dozen
trans-continental railroads. Like the fingers of an out-stretched hand, these railroads
extend across the great plains in the West, over deserts and mountains, always east and
west. The connecting links between them as we go further west, grow fewer until they
practically cease. The interruption of these railroads would completely cut off com-
munication between the east and the west. A half dozen men well quipped with high
explosives could blow these constructions to pieces. Then what would become of our
undefended Pacific Coast. It must be seen by even a casual glance at the real situation,
that the United States, in order to have assured protection must have an army great
enough for a large division to remain permanently at or near the points where a hostile
landing could be made, and not depend upon the well nigh impossible transportation of
troops from distant points.
I hesitate to state, yet, it is a fact, that our standing army, under the best possible
management, would be absolutely inadequate to protect our country against a foreign
One may talk about and criticise most severely the money spent for our ARMY,
liow many macadamized roads we could construct and how many schools we could
build. These things are excellent, but the protection of our nation comes first. The
good schools and roads afterwards.
I do not doubt the courage of the average American, but the courage of an indi-
vidual and that of an assemblage of individuals are two different things. The individ-
ual acts for himself, the assemblage goes with the crowd. It was not individual coward-
ice, but collective fear that ran from Bull Run. The men who ran from Bull Run,
stood at Gettysburg to the end. There was nothing between those two events except
two years of discipHne -and training in the hard school of war.
What this nation needs in time of war is a sufficient number of trained men to hold
the enemy in check until a volunteer army can be organized and equipped, and it is
then that we will push the invading army back into the sea. A reasonably large navy is
of course necessary for the protection and defense for which a navy is designed and
which a navy can be depended upon to accomplish. But as has been clearly shown we
need and must have more than this. We need a standing army of veteran troops
to defeat a foreign force should it effect a landing upon our shores. And it is for this
standing army that I plead tonight. If a large amount of the money expended for our
navy were used to equip and maintain a larger standing army the United States would
be far more secure than she is today. Now in the name of PATRIOTISM; AND
IN THE NAME OF COMMON SENSE, I would plead with our statesmen to
consider the simple facts which I have presented, and provide for a larger standing army
for the WELFARE of our country, the PRESERVATION of our honor, and the
PROTECTION of our homes.

Brilliant and bright the light of the chandelier.
Gorgeous and gay the array of mural veneer.
Enriching and rare without peer is th' orchestra's air.
Glittering with gold the gallants assembled here.
These cadets in the gray
Who have trained for the fray
They're the hosts of the day.
Yet more brilliant than all
Is the belle of the ball.
— She's the Queen of us all,
Is our M. A. Ceasarine.
Shimmering and sheen in the folds of man i ! i li ne .
As she sweeps down the hall
With elegant grace in the trusty embrace
Of her knight for the ball.
Oh we'll always essay
Every wish to obey
Of our dear prairie queen
Our M. A. C.'rine.
But when it comes to things athletic
She lays aside her soul aesthetic.
She's on the job.
On the side lines with her banner.
Cheering when each M. A. Ceasar
Kicks a goal.
Oh she never loses spirit.
Nor forgets the highest merit
In the game.
She's as good a friend as ever
To any downcast M. A. Ceasar
Who's struck out.
Oh! she's the belle of the "ball"

She's the pride of us all
Is our M. A. Ceasarine.
And when we're handed out our parchment ; viz : an honorable release
From the cause in which we've served four long years.
She is there to see us get it, and the first our hand to seize;
And our heart throbs at the sympathetic tear.
One more hearty cheer she gives us when we hold our last parade.
One last time we round the ball room to the strains of

Still she's the belle of the ball
And holds the hearts of us all

To become our own true queen for good and all.

ASK THE budding Prep what diversion stands out brightest against the somber
background of anticipated duty in his prospective college life.
Look into the wistful eyes of the Freshie as he manfully stands guard at the
entrance to the ball room on the night of a dance. Inquire of him "Whence the
unvoiced longing?" In his hopes, in his fears, in his plans for a college career, what
shares his award to distinction in studies, to the athletic emblem, to the military promo-
Appeal to the masterful Soph. What is the one shrine which he dare not despoil?
The one source of mandates which he always obeys? Pass on to the Junior. What
experience in college life holds at once the greatest pleasure in reminiscence and
the keenest enjoyment m anticipation?
The Senior. The perfected college man ready to go out into the world what has
been the sweetest blend in his moulding? The Rossbourg Scribe tran^smits the verdict
of them all. The responses were not in Esperanto, but coming from our members among
the Preps and from our members among the Seniors, they breathe alike, and in terms
intelligible to all, the spirit of the days of Old Rossbourg Inn. The same spirit of rever-
ence for the South's beautiful women that made the walls of the famous old hostelry
ring with the laughter of happy couples, today decorates for our College dances and
insures for the Rossbourg Club a tender and abiding place in the memory of its many

^jr HE activities of the association began as has been the usual custom, with the
I I L annual Y. M. C. A. reception. Members of the facuUy attended with their wives,
^^ and thus the new men were given an opportunity to become acquainted with them.
The old cadets entered heartily into the spirit of the occasion and with the help
of outside dramatic talent made the new cadets feel more at home in their new surround-
ings, and a desire to take part in the social Hfe at college.
The occasion was pronounced a success and the association would gladly hold
other receptions thruout the year were it not handicapped by the lack of funds.
The aim of our association has been to keep up the spiritual welfare of the men
while at college. Most of our cadets have left Christian homes, where the practice of
Bible study and prayer has had an influence in forming their lives for the good of their
fellow beings. Our desire has been to keep up these precepts, to strengthen the char-
acter of our students and engaged ourselves in carrying out the work of advancing the
Kingdom of Christ on earth. Men realize that to overcome the evils which confront
them in college life, they cannot stand alone in their own strength. The association
has tried to lead its members right, has tried to teach them to accept Christ, to have
faith, to strengthen their courage with acts, and thus to conquer their temptations.
Elisha when beset by the king of Syria, having received word from his servant of the
threatening appearance of the enemy's army, tells his servant. "Fear not, for they that
be with us are more than they that be with them. God and one make a Majority."
With Him for our companion, friend and counselor, our lives will not be unsuccessful.
The Bible study work has had a very prosperous year. The association has fur-
nished gratuitously nearly a hundred men with text books, and have conducted weekly
two Bible study classes under the supervision of Prof. Bomberger. The spirit with which
the men have kept up this work reflects a credit upon the corps of cadets, and shows
that admirable characteristic of sticking to their aim until the goal is reached. Nearly
sixty cadets have continued in the practice of daily Bible reading for the whole second
term and part of the third. It is indeed gratifying to have a record like this.
A great deal of interest was taken in the Baltimore Missionary Convention for col-
leges in Maryland and Delaware. Dr. T. R. Sloan paid us an early visit and boosted
up the Missionary cause. Our spirit being aroused to this work we sent five men to
the conference. These came back influenced with the possibiHties of a Missionary Hfe
and presented to the association a most interesting report. Missionary work is wonder-
fully interesting and it is hoped that next year more time will be given to this great cause.
The association wishes to express its appreciation for the hberality of the Board of
Trustees in recognizing their efforts, and for the generous appropriation they have made
us. It was due to this that we were able to send our next year's president to the con-
ference at Amherst College during the Easter holidays.
As has been the usual custom for the winter term, of having men of note speak
to us, we have been accorded great pleasure and benefit this year in hearing Judge T.
R. Sloan. Mr. Hanston, Mr. S. F. Morrison, Prof. Bomberger, Mr. S. M. Hann,
Capt. R. W. Silvester and W. Knowles Cooper.
May the Y. M. C. A. next year accomplish still greater work than have we in

^JT HE EFFORTS of the football team of 1910 were rewarded with phenomenal
LpL and long to be remembered success. You may get some idea of what mettle
^^ this team was composed when we consider the grand total of 79 points scored by
M. A. C. against the 32 points which was all our opponents were able to score
on us during the whole season. This certainly shows a "favorable balance of trade."
In this short space of course it will be impossible to go into a detailed account of
the merits of each player but we can't refrain from mentioning the good work of Kemp,
who ably vindicated the wisdom of those who selected him Captain, by running the team
in fine style, besides doing some excellent work at left end himself. Then there is
Shipley, the all around College athlete and popular idol of the student body. He added
many more laurels to his crown during the season, and as quarter back of the team eclipsed
his already brilHant record as a clean, aggressive and brainy player. Of the rest of the
team we can only say that we do not knpw where to begin to praise. The M's and
stars awarded this year have been fairly won in each case and their wearers may feel
The team started out by winning six consecutive victories, rolling up such scores as
22 — against Richmond College and 20 — against CathoHc University, and de-
feating George Washington University and Washington College. About that time
we began to think we were invincible, and looked forward to giving St. John's the
trimming of their lives. The proverbial hoo-doo got busy, however, and our entire
backfield was taken out of the game. Burns leavmg college, and Bender and Duckett
both being disabled by sprained ankles.
The team made a game fight, however, and St. John's succeeded in making but
one touchdown against us.
Although Andrews will be missed at right end on next year's team, he is the only
member to graduate this year and great hopes are entertained for a strong team next

ITH very bright prospects and heaps of encouragement, our baseball team turned
out for spring practice.
Our aim, from the first call for candidates, has ever been to lick St. John's,
and then to win the state championship; for the banners in our trophy hall are
becoming too familiar to our eyes, and we wish to add more color in the shape of a new
But the banner will keep until we defeat St. John's. It is the turn for the hoo-doo to
work with us this year and not against us, for we still feel the sting of two defeats
at their hands last year.
Coach Brason is very confident of the outcome and predicts for his men great things
— promises to "bring home the bacon" on every trip.
Although we lost several good men from last year's squad, among whom were
Capt. Grason, Saunders, Burns, Gus Goeltz, Cortelyou and Wright, yet with the new
material on hand, Capt. Shipley expects to round out a championship team.
Three new pitchers have been developed, Duckett, Hoffecker and Smith. Hoffeck-
er's performance against the Navy stamps him as a "comer." Duckett's no hit game with
Rock Hill indicates that he can deliver the goods, while Smith had the Indian sign on
Delaware College from the whistle.
Altho the loss of Capt. Grason from the receiving end was a heavy one, yet we
have entire confidence in Munnikhuysen, for up to the time of this writing, he has de-
livered the goods on all occasions. Another recruit is Reubert at short. He has stepped
into Grason's shoes when it comes to stickwork and is a valuable man in fielding his po-
sition. But the smallest man on the team, and the livehest, is "Reds" Ritter, the guar-
dian of the keystone sack. What he lacks in stature, he amply makes up in wit, playing
and in batting.
Of the old men little need be said. Such names as Furniss, Shipley, Ledum R.,
Goeltz, Lednum J., and Mudd K. are by-words with everyone.
Our most notable performance so far this season has been against the Navy. On
April 5th we journeyed to Sailo-land and gave them a stunning broadside when at the
end of fifteen innings, the score board showed one lone tally for each side. Hoffecker
was an enigma but the backing up was of gilt edge order.
In rapid succession we humbled Rock Hill and the University of Maryland, while
Cailaudet also suffered defeat at our hands. Georgetown was saved a trouncing when
rain prevented the game, for we intended to include her scalp in our collection.
We hope to surpass this record when we cross bats with St. John's and our men
will leave no stone unturned to wave the red flag over their heads. At the present time
the outlook is exceedingly bright ard as a farewell word we caution you to see if our
prophesy does not come true.

F ALL of the branches of athletics which a collegian takds part in, there can be
no doubt but that good track athletics will result in more good to him, to his
college and his friends than that of any other kind. There is no other form of
amusement which a spectator takes so much interest in as a contest, especially that
in which one contestant is matched directly against another, and any one who was not
at the indoor track meets, which were given at various places during the winter and early
spring months can scarcely realize the happiness and delight which we felt in seeing our
own track athletes overcome one opponent after another in dashes, middle distance runs
and relay races.
During the past season M. A. C. has had representatives at all of the indoor games
held in this section of the country. The middle distance and cross country team is
composed of such men as O'Connor, Charey, Trimble, Kemp and Munnikhuysen who do
not let any moss grow under their feet. The sprinters and short distance runners have been
even more successful than the middle distance men; having captured prizes at all meets.
A group of sprinters such as Stanton, Greenburg, Levin, Duckett, Morris, Blankman,
Healey and Rupert is the much prized team of M. A. C, a team which other institutions
might well envy.
The team, however, which experienced the greatest success was the relay team.
They lowered the flying colors of more than a dozen colleges and schools and well de-
served the name of "Champions," bearirg up well to the record breaking pace set by
our relay teams of the past several years. The men composing the team were Kemp,
Duckett, Morris, Branham, and Munnikhuysen.

^?r HE QUESTION has often been asked "What makes a college?" An institu-
LfL tion of learning can have a very high course of study and not be a very great suc-
^^ cess, while another college, possibly deserving less praise, and honor, but having good
athletics will grow in size and standing. Last year being the beginning of this
new branch of athletics. Lacrosse, the team did not have a very great success. This
year, however, having more aiid better material from which to pick the team, including
several of last year's players, it showed up to a much better advantage, playing games
with other teams which reflected real credit on the College. Altho not winning a long
list of victories, lacrosse this season was without doubt a success because of the fact that
we made a good showing when playing against some of the best teams of this section of
Under the captaincy of Powell, and the efficiency of W. H. Mays the stick work

ISS BOMBERGER took charge of the College Hospital when we, the present
Senior class, were Freshmen. She soon endeared herself to the student body
by her constant and skilled attention to those who were placed under her care
in time of sickness; by her kindly watchfulness over the general health of the
cadets; and by her continual willingness to give advice to all who came to her for it.
Further, she is always ready for a social chat with any of her numerous friends
in the cadet battalion, being heartily interested in their work and pleasures, and truly
sympathizing in their trials. She loves to tell us of the many entertaining incidents and
experiences that have fallen to her lot in the past, in connection with her chosen work.
May life's path be smooth, full of sunshine and strewn with roses, for Miss Bom-
berger, an efficient and faithful nurse — a true friend and advisor of the class of 1911.
May the students of the Maryland Agricultural College continue for many years to
come to receive the benefits of her valuable services.

The Horticultural Course is one that in importance stands near the head of the list
for it treats of the wants ard needs of the people. It embraces the cultivation of the
Orchard, Garden, and Greenhouse. The products of these are adding more every year
to the wealth and comfort of the people of the State of Maryland than they derive from
any other one source.
When the Big Three of 1911 look back over their college days at M. A. C, some
of their recurring thoughts will be, not how they toiled in the greenhouse or orchard, but
how they would play a game of bluff upon Prof. B. . Sometimes they would be
successful, and again, he would bring them to a sudden halt when they would be reciting
from their imagination by asking, "What are the words in the book."
Some of the hardest work that was done in the study of the Apple, was in the cosy
corner of a parlor in Baltimore, bisecting a choice specimen of a Grimes Golden with a
Lady Assistant, when the cadet was supposed to be inspecting fruit at the Maryland
Horticulture Society Show. Those of 1 9 H who have taken this course have put in
some hard work during their college days, and will step off the Campus of M. A. C.
well equipped to fight the bugs and diseases of plant life in the future and may prove
a credit to their Alma Mater, and it is hoped that at least one of the three may develop
into a "Burbank," and be a Plant Wizard of the East. Thanks to Prof. Close and his

'Tis a mid summer afternoon and the sun seems to have no pity on the little flow-
ers that grow in the meadow. They hang their heads as if afraid to take a peep
at the object which so cruelly throws its hot rays upon them. The plants are
withered, the sand scorched, and not a leaf stirs from the friendly oak near by.
The buttercup and daisy, the clover and the fern, all murmur in a soft, sad voice; look,
over the horizon comes a cloud floatmg swiftly on the breezes. The leaves on the big oak
began a litrle song as the wind playfully slaps them together.
Slowly and softly the drops of rain begin to fall; one by one the withered plants
begin to revive; inch by inch the scorched sand is cooled; and once more the tiny brook
begins its chatter as it swiftly rushes over its stony bed.
The butter cup and daisy, the clover and the fern, all whisper in a soft, sweet voice,
as they lift their heads to drink the cool refreshing rain; but look, the sun is gone, and
darkness quickly comes, the flowers bend their heads, and singing a sweet lullaby, all

The Senior chemists at "work." The one o'clock class bell rings and then the
ten minute bell. Just as the Prof, has given up in despair, the three delinquents file in
and dispose themselves in picturesque attitudes on the laboratory desks. What strange
and weird chemical experiment can they be performing now, for they ir,sert curious in-
struments into their mouths dictu wirabiie, wreaths of blue smoke escape from their lips.
This duty accomplished the work proceeds with commendable promptness. Reese goes
into the balance room and while ostensibly weighing out samples, he cocks his feet up on
the table and reads a popular magazine. Silvester leaps behind the door with a water
bottle, and hearing footsteps approachir.g he drowns the intruder, who happens to be Prof.

merrily by with the three jolly Chemists.

him an immense tray full of (Good rich) Indian (Mays), fried (Chicken) and

who happened to be rambling by at once chased off (An drew) water for him (At well)
of (Chaney.) (John) the soldier now arrived upon the scene and drowned the uproar
with his (Camp bell).
Things soon became (Stabler) however and the (Chef) immediately put out for
the shop of (Keller) the (Smith) to get his broken (Glass) mended, while the wheel
barrow party stopped to rest in a nearby field of (White Herb)s of the (Home King)
variety. There they came across (Lindsay) trying to comfort (Pop) by telling him
that there were yet (Lyons) in the Washington jungles to be caught; that he should not
allow one (Little) disappointment to mar his whole life, but take (Jacob) for an ex-
ample, who has served 14 years for his (Lucie.)

^1^ HE GOOD ship 191 1 cleared from Port Heureux eie a-la-maison on Sept. 15th,
IIL 1910, with papers granting right of entry at all ports in M. A. C. Barracks; and
^^ authorizing supreme right of pohce on the high seas thereof. Sailed at high noon
under a lucky star, with a fair wind, clear sky, and gently rolling sea.
Hereat beginneth the log for a nine months voyage, to serve as an unerring chronicle
for the use of whom it may concern.
Sept. 15th. — Uproar and confusion. Old boys piling in and everybody relating
their summer experiences. Rats creeping around like Georgia Crackers in New York,
or lying about under the trees snuffling over letters from home. Fellows consigned to
classes. First Sergeants make out company rolls.
Sept. 1 6th. — First senior class meetings. Maj. Mudd gives us a lecture on the
responsibihty of Seniors. "Doc. Tolly" informs the Seniors that they must get down to
work. Rat wants to know when the elevator is going up. The rodents still swarming
in. Major and Captains in a dilemma to know where to stow them.
Sept. 1 7th. — Companies formed. Lots of squabbling between A and B compan-
ies. Great conglomeration m the barracks all the evening. Everybody moves at once.
No sooner were the weary nomads in their beds than they were all called up and hustled
into chapel when an "imitation Easter egg hunt" was instituted, lasting into the wee sma'
hours of the morning. But by the aid of Clark's cakes and McKenna's singing, we man-
aged to pass away the time.
Sept. 1 8th. — O. D. Smith makes himself a hero by a special act of bravery. First
Y. M. C. A. meeting tonight in chapel. Large attendance. John C. leads in the sing-
ing. A few fellows really begin to study today.
Sept. 19th. — "Cab" gives his first spiel in chapel this year. Drill. Teaching rats
the manual of arms. Villarroel shows us how they do it in South America, and Burch,
how they do it in Washington High School. Another Senior class meeting. Big dis-
cussion over the division of the spoils of "Senior graft." Lindsay gets generous and offers
to turn in half his "poster profits."
Sept. 20th. — Everybody getting broken in and things running smoothly. Another
Senior class meeting.
Sept. 21st. — First broom fight between the rats in the different companies. Rats
mysteriously lose brooms after the fight is over. A Co. starts rough house, but the O. C.
is on his job. Meeting of Rossbourg Club. Burns elected President. Another Senior
class meeting. Seniors decide that the unlicensed Hebrew merchant who attempted to
peddle without their authority must make them a present of half of his profits.
Sept. 22nd. — Y. M. C. A. reception. Very enjoyable occasion, most of the
faculty present. A few of the students decided to go on watermelon party instead,
consequently the alley became so slippery that the O. C. experienced some difficulty in
Sept. 23rd. — Typical and uneventful day. Which includes, of course. Senior
Sept. 25th. — Sunday. Fire day. Everybody goes to church except those who went
to town last right — they find it more profitable to sleep. "Commy" gives Seniors a lec-
ture on discipHne after morning Inspection. Ice cream for dinner. Hear we are to get it
fortnightly all the year. Naturally great rejoicing. How can the College afford to be
Sept. 26th. — Much interest is being shown in football practice. Athletic meeting
held after supper. Silvester chosen chairman of same. Immediately gets to work getting
up spirit in the new students. "Abe" elected chief rooter.
Sept. 27th. — First game. Beat Central High School twelve to zip. Rats just
learning how to root but do well. Prospects for an excellent football team.
Sept. 28th. — Football coach does not show up today, but football practice goes
on as usual. Apple orchard raided. Band gets very busy practicing. The Governor
has asked them to play at Hancock. "Commy" informs Drach that it would be a good
idea for him to get his gun ard go to drill, but Drach does not think it would be well
for his constitution.
Sept. 29th. — "Gene" starts a Savings Bank in 43. Becomes special agert of
Andrews Paper Co. to M. A. C. students. The Major says it is a money making prop-
osition. Everybody getting down to hard work. Lacrosse team organized.
Sept. 30th. — Blue Monday. Everybody gets a question when he thought it was
not his turn to be called on and nngs up a zip. O. D. puts the screws on and reels
off a long dehnquency sheet.
Oct. 1st. — Sophomores got irdustrious last night and proceeded to decorate the
buildings and campus with shocks of corn, gasoline barrels, flower pots, signs, and all
other movable objects within their reach. Seniors promptly inform them that it would be
expedient to undo the damage. Needless to say they took all day at it.
Oct. 2nd. — Typical Sunday at M. A. C. Student body sleep, eat, visit each other
and read Sunday papers. Many go out walking in afternoon, and pay their respects to
the swimming pool.
Oct. 3-6. — Accidents will happen. Lost notes on these days out of my pocket
while swimming in Paint Branch. Being light they floated, but before I could recover
them, a mullet came along and swallowed them. Am preserving the mullet, however.
Oct. 7th. — Mass meeting in chapel. Prof. Richardson starts the ball rolling.
ACROSS THE CAMPUS
Great enthusiasm as each member of the football team tells us how he is going to "win
or die." Seniors take advantage of good humor of student body and have great success
with their Senior grafts during the remainder of evening.
Oct. 8th. — Rain, Rain! Nevertheless, half the school accompanies the team to
Baltimore. Open bleachers — cold driving rain. Does not dampen the spirits of M. A.
C. rooters, however. Team play line game. Score 1 1 — 1 I. M. A. C. does Balti-
more and returns home on the midnight train.
Oct. 9th. — More rain.
Oct. 1 0th. — First company drill for rats. Very much pleased, and in their enthus-
iasm, are careful to make all mistakes possible. Football team gets into trouble, but
Posey plays the hero and saves them from getting "stuck."
Oct. 1 1 th. — Novelty of drill wearing off. Lots of fellows try to beat the Hst.
"You dad burned scamps." Dancing lessons as usual tonight. Business not so good
as last year. Many of the rats already skilled in the Terpsichorean art.
Oct 1 2th. — Uniforms arrive. See the rats strut. Corporal Albert officially recog-
nized as the living megaphone through which students make known their wants.
Oct. I 3th. — Lucky day. Most everybody makes a ten. Even the Seniors in
Graphic Statics manage to ring up one or two between them. Peach pie for dinner.
Hash for supper — John C.'s favorite dish.
Oct. 1 4th. — Cadet Clark and several other members of the Glee Club while warb-
ling harmoniously at the foot of the steps are unceremoniously "drowned" by a disinter-
ested audience in the peanut gallery.
Oct. I 5 th. — Catholic University team paid us a visit today, but were sent home
with a score of 2 1 — 0. We were glad of this revenge for the big baseball score they
rolled up against us last spring.
Oct. 1 6th. — The gelatin for desert today came in liquid form. We could not
have kicked against that if it had only been served in glasses instead of saucers. Rogers
mixes strap with his and goes after it with a piece of bread.
Oct. I 7th. — The first battalion drill of the season. Major waxes enthusiastic over
the mihtary ability of the non-coms and scatters taffy. Kinghorne cracked another joke
of the usual bum variety and everybody laughed — to keep peace with the diplomat.
Oct. 1 8th. — The Hebbel twins arrive, and are at once taken under the loving care
of the G. O. H. One of them parts his hair on one side, and the other on the other
side that we may tell them apart. They are lodged on the band hall, across from the
Colborn brothers. We will soon have a whole company of "Aggielettes."
Oct. 19th. — M. A. C. 6, George Washington, 0. We are making the other
colleges sit up and take rotice. "Abe" True also led a loyal drove of rooters on to
victory. Georgetowners merely worked their jaws.
Oct. 20th.^ — Everybody's vocal cords on the sick Hst but "Abe's." But why
should it be otherwise, is he not a son of the Grecian Gods, able to stand more than ten
average men? How about it, Goeltz?
Oct. 2 1 St. — Rain last night. Battahon was drilled thru mud by Mudd, who him-
self kept out of the mud. Nevertheless, we were all Mudd, E. Incidentally, Clark
gave vent to some classic cuss words about the ruining of his patent leather pumps. The
"Duke" found an excuse to wear a second pair of noisy-colored socks today. Rather
a flimsy excuse tho, wasn't it Paul?
Our first Rossbourg dance comes off tonight, supper at 5.30. Everybody wants
to be excused from the mess hall to catch his car. The Major gets "rasty," calls the
battalion to attention, and commands, "All those who don't want to eat, please leave the
room." He then has the Adjutant entertain us with the O. D.'s latest Hterary produc-
Oct. 22nd. — Reveille — no O. C. — , ro Seniors. David Glass and Roland Devil-
biss declare that the benches in Union Station feel very comfortable at 3:00 A. M.
Everybody is sleepy in class today.
Oct. 23rd. — Lieut. Oswald H. Saunders, U. S. A., made a strong address at
the Y. M. C. A. tonight. We are all glad to have our dear old Major with us again.
Several members of the fair sex were present.
Oct. 24th. — A refractory canine took possession of A Co. hall at taps tonight, and
it required the united efforts of the O. D., O. C, watchman, and laundryman to dislodge
him; yet the BattaHon peacefully snored thru the fracas. They are too accustomed to
"thmgs that pass m the night" to be awakened by a mere "noise."
Oct. 25th. — Mudd gets busy with the guano again. The young plants recommend
to each other a shower bath, as an effective cleanser and sweetening rain.
Lindsay tells his Company to "Gee up!" and commands the fractious horse to
Oct. 26th. — The first team is practicing hard for the game on Friday with Wash-
ington College. The number of students now enrolled is 120. John C. Reese, now
"professor," is doing finely as assistant chemist and laboratory instructor for Sophomores.
He has applied to "Commy" to be excused from drill, but the Big Chief says "No go!"
Oct. 27th. — Being called on for a current topic this morning, Raymond reported
that he "had one up his sleeve for two weeks, but had forgot it now." "Sonny" arose
and casually remarked that the Panama Canal should be fortified. H. Roland enter-
tained us with a bit of "News" from last Saturday's American, while in the meantime
Glass was reading up a current topic with one eye and translating "Deutch," by means
of the other. "Bommy's" right wing peacefully snoring.
Oct. 28th. — An intensely exciting game with Washington College. The team
keeps up its record of victories, making the final score Washington College, 0, M. A. C.
5. When the W. C. team came into the mess hall we tried to boost their fallen spirits
With some lusty cheers.
Oct. 29th. — -The second team played Baltimore Polytechnic today. Were defeated
2 to 0, altho they put up an excellent game. The Chronologist (that's me) has just
been over to the Infirmary for some dope. He also received an ample supply in linguistic
form from Miss B .
Oct. 30th. — The dessert today was abundant in quantity but the flavor appeared
only on the bill-of-fare. As that also was imaginary, the tapioca went begging and the
cadets made an assault on the bread and strap.
Oct. 3 1 St. — Nature is storing up energy in her youth. Brain storms are brewing.
Vague whispers are in the air. There is the hush of pent-up passions. Profs, shake
their heads and look wise.
Nov. 1st. — Had an awful nightmare last . Oh no! you're right. It was
Hallowe'en. The Seniors stood on their dignity and staid at home. The Sophs tried
to impress the fact of their existence upon Washington population while still remaining
an unknown quantity to the "cops." The lower classes paraded the Park 'Dale, and
'Ville. A few bold adventurers braved the 'Burg, and managed to drop anchor at M.
A. C. by daylight.
Nov. 2nd. — Yesterday's storm of Zips has slightly abated. The Sophs, are mak-
ing their first hydrogen. "Albert's" flask exploded. "We want more noise."
Nov. 3rd. — A rainy day. "Commy" instructs the Seniors in patrol duty. The
non-coms have their first experience in drilling the companies. Gelatin for dessert again.
After trying in vain to eat this rubber-like substance, the fellows have a httle game of
pitch and catch.
Nov. 4th. — Snow. Snow at reveille Formation inside. Snow at drill —
drill in halls. Snow in evening — "Who's going to the store after supper?" — Silence.
Nov. 5th. — Rainy day, with everyone in corresponding rainy-day spirits. O. D.
raining sticks and Profs, raining zips. Herb White busts a retort and Henry smashes
some clay apples. Gallaudet game had to be called off because of the rain.
Nov. 6th. — Oysters for supper. Haas performs the remarkable feat of consum-
ing 5 large bowls of the bivalves, and then tops off with a couple of fried eggs sent in
by Charlie. It's strange how some people can eat so much protein.
Nov. 7th. — Remarkable event, unparalleled in the annals of M. A. C. All Seniors
were present at 8.15 class formation. The Major voices his hearty congratulations.
Have we turned over a new leaf? Alas! It is but an accident.
Nov. 8th. — This is election day — a Holiday. The vote in Room 43 goes Dem-
ocratic as a matter of course, and the Major gets mobbed for being a Republican. The
band with a contingent of M. A. Caesars following, goes on an electioneering tour for
J. Enos Ray in the 'Dale, 'Ville, 'Burg, and District Line. Enos makes them a speech,
treats them to soft drinks, and pays their way back to college with a "five plunker."
Nov. 9th. — Democratic Landslide! All Democratic sympathizers lengthen their
hat bands and start bum arguments with each other. "J. Keller" and "Devil" sit back
and look on.
Nov. 10th. — Bradshaw, (Doubtfully) — Captain, will you sign this request,
"Commy" — Where are you going, Mr. Bradshaw?
Bradshaw, (earnestly) — To see a lady friend.
"Commy" — Nothing doing, Mr. Bradshaw.
Nov. 1 1 th. — The Battalion makes a hasty descent upon the car station after break-
fast for the purpose of digesting the same (the breakfast, I mean) and incidentally
to give the team a send-off on their Southern trip.

cial care to show him "His office," on the left at entrance of the Old Barracks.
Nov. 12th. — "Gene" hustles off as usual, at reveille to feed his "thesis" (Ooicl(,
ooicli. Cuff, guff, IVe-e-e-e-e) .
A great prize fight on the front portico today. "Eazy" Martz comes off victor,
and is proclaimed one of America's greatest pugilists.
Nov. 1 3th. — The team is back from Virginia. The Southern trip was not all
success, and M. A. C. met her Waterloo on the fields of an old rival, V. M. I. Score,
8 — 0. Williams, R. C, and the Gray trio took their usual Sunday morning walk to
the 'Ville. Pres. Glass led the Y. M. C. A. in his usual forceful manner.
Nov. 1 4th. — Cobey is taking the rest cure in "Loafers Retreat." We find that
peach trees are not the only things that can have the "yellows." John C. forgets to go
to German, at 1 :45, but meanders over to the chemical lab instead. "Boohoo" sends
the orderly after him. He kids Johnnie in his usual sarcastic way about his "hobby."
Nov. 1 5th. — John C. again. He finds Dr. "Mac's" lectures soothing. When
asked a question, he awakes with a start, gives the right answer, and returns to the
land of nod. Baseball manager Devilbiss is rounding up a good schedule.
Nov. 1 6th. — The football squad is practicing for the game on Saturday. It looks
bad for St. John's. Mass meeting tonight, at which Chas. S. waxes eloquent and sets
the students on fire with enthusiasm. No Revival meeting was ever more successful.
Everyone declared that St. John's was already beaten.
Nov. I 7th. — The Senior Class spends much time in a long and wordy debate, the
most forceful gusts coming from the "Lawyer," while our long headed Major hurls
forth the arguments of a sage. But the point under consideration has long been lost to
view. The secretary closes his book in disgust. At the first note of taps "Abe" de-
clares the meeting adjourned, and the sub-division inspectors scamper off to see that all
are in. A typical class meeting.
Nov. 1 8th. — Prof. Creese laughs. The latest reports indicate that his countenance
is uninjured. "Commy" keeps the orderly on the run. Lectures O. D. about having
formations inside when there is no falling weather. "Sonny" skips drill as usual. Mudd
comes on as O. D. All Seniors lock their doors. I wonder why? "Duty, gentlemen,
is higher than friendship."
Nov. 1 9th. — Fort Conley deserted. Everybody off for AnnapoHs. Twenty fel-
lows started out to walk thereto, under the guidance of the "Rooster," who pursued the
same course as the boy that followed his nose. After making a ten mile circuit, they
chased off at a tangent at midnight, passed Bowie on the wing, and landed in a swamp.
Several of the less sturdy pedestrians had fallen by the wayside but the rest pushed on,
and by daybreak saw them at Annapohs.
Sleep, sleep, sweet, sweet sleep.

ilbiss' name, "And Cobey," and hands in the problem.
Nov. 24th. — Because of the excellent record of the students this fall, the trustees
decide to give a Thanksgiving Holiday. Home, Sweet Home. Oh, you pumpkin pie.
Turkey and cranberries, mince pie with brandy for those who did not go home.
W. M. C. 1 7, M. A. C. 3. This is the last game of the season, and the team promptly
breaks training and proceeds to do Westminster. The dignified Westminsterites hold
up their hands in holy horror.
Nov. 25th. — How pleasant it is to sleep, to eat, to loaf, and perchance to sleep
again, at heart's desire, for those poor humans who reeds must jump and act at eight and
twenty bugle calls a day.
Nov. 26th. — Everybody went to town.
O, you twenty-five cert matinee!
Nov. 27th. — Most everybody is back on time at 7:30, lest "Commy" execute
his dire threat of arrest. Everybody brings with him a suit case of "eats" and the best
of all is a Charles county sausage, says "Speakeasy."
Nov. 28th. — Cold and clear. "Commy" tries to make up for lost time, by drilling
the battalion at double time. Fine practice for a marathon. Everybody enjoys it,
including the Signal Corps, who stand by and look on.
Nov. 29th. — Cadet Powell waxes poetic:
Put on your old gray bonnet
With the M. A. C. on it.
Hook on your side-arms — take your gun;
We'll go out on the campus
And we will have a little rampus
For our double time "Commy's" fun.
Lieut. Glass, the senior business prodigy, has been directed by the class to take
charge of the June Ball. He at once races off to the green house and orders an acre
of sweet peas planted for decorations.
Nov. 30th. — More double time. "Senator" Drack makes another business trip
to town, presumably to purchase articles for the use of his gang in the commissary
dep't, but it is rumored that he is also a customer of Bailey's on Seventh St. Pro-
fessor Gwinner in structural design: Mr. Devilbiss, take hold of this — here, and you,
Mr. Cobey, here. Gentlemen, the paper is worth six. I shall credit each of you three.

press purpose of putting the class to sleep, and that Economics is not intended for a
lullaby. The Seniors are very much surprised.

suggests that they could find one nearer home in the Engineering building. "Lots of
gas," he says, "Hot air always on tap."
Dec. 8th. — "Commy" paints a big sign and tacks it over the O. D.'s door. "No
cadets allowed in this room except the O. D. and Orderly." Seniors indignant at losing

and gets permission to sit up after taps. Rocked in the cradle of the cribs. Tracing
cloth and rubber bands at a premium. O, you flunks in bridge and graphics. The
Juniors bone up on physics and calculus. Russell makes I 00 in analytics.

and all's quiet at Fort Conley.
Jan. 3rd. — "How are you, old boy? Have a good time Christmas? Say, got
anything to eat in that suitcase? Be around tonight." Same old thing in the same old
way. Everybody back on time but those that aren't, and "Herb" White on the job
to wax the stragglers. Scramble for the mail, then the schedule board. Chaney wants
to take Dutch with the chemical men and fill out all empty periods with "Der Katze
Fische" in mathematics. O, you industrious "Chicken."
Jan. 4th.- — Easy faints in ranks at reveille. Too much turkey during the hohdays,
or is M. A. C. grub too rich for the delicate palate of so great a brain worker? Furniss
drills his company at reveille from the depths of his downy couch. "Puckum" sends
word to the O. C. that he's on his way, probably be there about breakfast time.
Jan. 5 th. — Winter target practice begins. Cadet Hamilton — I forget which one,

Y. University to a score of 25 — 7. Game played in Berwyn Gymnasium. Every-

Jan. 8th. — Beautiful day. Everybody goes to church, then to the Park. Are
seen on their way with kid gloves in their hands, cigars between their teeth, and emitting
comic opera melodies. Chicken today for dinner was mostly wings and necks, — there
must be a lot of visitors in the Prof's, dining room.
Jan. 9th.— "Commy" cuts a melon today. Cadets Hull, Crapster, Williams R.
C. and Russell each favored with a corporalcy. Cadet Hull gives a reception to his
many admirers. Cadet Williams also was entertained by many visitors and received
Jan. 10th.— Mad dog! Mad dog! Kill him, shoot him, eat 'im alive! Every-
body joins in the chase. "Cab" with an ax helve in the lead, followed by the treasurer
with his seal, "Wirt" with a bunch of pens, Daniels with his crow bar, the janitor with
his mop, and the Matron with her feather duster. Everybody yells fire, and Dr.
"Mac" chases out with the fire extinguisher. The Cadet Major now leads the student
body out with their pop-pops and fires the first shot himself. Posey wounds the enemy,
and "Chess" Adams finishes the job. And if you don't beheve this, ask the mad dog
or any other M. A. C. cadet, and he will surely verify the tale of tragedy.
Jan. 1 1 th. — Everybody in the country around is shooting his dogs for fear they
may get hot in the collar. The mad dog's head has been sent to Johns Hopkins
University and "Bill" says they found a sure case of "Rabbits" on the brain. Said
that was probably the reason he was so hard to catch. (Question, "What Bill?" No,
not you. Bill, the other fellow).
Jan. 1 2th. — Seniors hard at work on tactics. "Commy" is soaking it to them,
twenty pages a day. "Baldy" sent to the board to draw the different kinds of sights,
but sees only shooting stars appear above the horizon to prophecy the Kinghorne con-
stellation in class book Conley. "Abe" however, comes to the rescue. Another
meeting of the Morrill Literary Society.
Jan. 1 4th. — Prof. S. tells Warthen that he got a zip "auf Deutch" yesterday,
but today he would get one with the ring taken off. Warthen tries to commit cadeticide

Jan. 16th. — Edgar T. gets witty in tactics. Tells "Abe" that a battalion can't
fly with one wing shorter than the other. Asks "Pop" how he could tell which way
the wind was blowing if a flag was hanging down around the pole. "Pop" rephes
that the wind in that case would be normal to the earth's surface.
Jan. 1 7th. — Prize fight in gym. The O. D. gets interested and dismisses the
guard to see the fight; goes over and tries to enforce his rules of "scrap;" becomes very
obstreperous and gets in deeper water all the time. Somebody holds him up by the
sash while he gets his breath and cools his brain. He posts the guard, returns to his
office, and repents at leisure. Question: Who won the fight?
Everybody declares "Bill" the "rat" a hero.
Jan. 1 8th. — Two weeks course in poultry begins. Many cock-a-doodle-doos from
this and two other states report to the chicken house on the hill. And a number of fair
cluck-clucks, too. The ten-week "Corn-crackers," who put in their appearance im-
mediately after Christmas, are also taking this course. Henry Stabler has unwarily
taken one of these for a roommate, and judging from the sounds of conflict that leak
thru the floor into the room below, he must have reason to regret his hospitality.
Jan. 1 9th. — Rossbourg Club bankrupt. The president offers such easy terms
to those wishing to learn to dance that such reluctarts as Stabler, Martz and Shipley,
make their debut into the Terpsichorean art. Chaney and Smith, R. have a "tete-a-

that it is no easy matter to pass a gas thru a soHd glass wall. Thinking the building

career around the corner. "Ikey" soon persuades him to return, albeit in fear and tremb-
Feb. 2nd. — " Baldy 's" conscience gets rampant all of a sudden, and pricks him

things, the Senior consciences, and dangerous to fool with. Who hissed in the mess
hall? Nobody, of course.

Mar. 6th. — As usual the C. E. Seniors had to open windows to let out the sul-
phuric air when they came in to Doc "Tolly's" Classroom after the last belated
Junior flounderer in Calculus and had been mathematically cussed out of the room.
Mar. 7th. — Seniors are taught First Aid to The Injured. Smith has a theoret-
ical broken arm. He dies from gangrene on account of a bum job at setting.
Mar. 8th. — Ten Week men and all others who Hke a big noise are given a demon-
stration by a representative of the Dupont Powder Works. Dr. "Tolly" gives out prob-
lems and turns the C. E.'s over to Davidson while he attends.
Mar. 9th. — Big talk about the military maneuvers in Mexico. Everybody gets
the military fever and is cheering on the dogs of war. Even "E. T." seems to b©
pervaded with the spirit and breaks down a little from his accustomed dignity. Every-
body boneing for exams.
Mar. 10th. — "Baldy" makes another of his frequent trips to town. He has a
swell time, you bet. Numerous rumors are afloat, of course, altho we must admit upon
mature consideration that it is not the most commonplace thing for an affinity to be run-
ning around in a hobble skirt, carrying the handbag upside down. Also it must be
confessed that 1 5th and G St. is a very unlikely place for affinity. All the Seniors
sit up studying for tactics exam. "Gene" says he studied like a son-of-a-gun. "Bal-
dy's" Hght was seen burning right after Taps and also at 3 A. M. It is supposed
that he slipped in the back way about 1 o'clock and tried to make up for lost time.
Mar. 1 1th. — Why did the Adjutant make such a hasty breakfast? Tactics exam,
a leadpipe cinch. Only twenty questions, all easy little ones. How about it, fellows?
Joseph will surely agree with me.
Mar. 12th. — (Apropos to the experience of two ranking officers this afternoon).
Question: — If there are three girls to be divided among four boys, what does each fellow
get? Answer: — He gets sore at the other fellow.
Mar. 1 3th. — Capt. of Co. B gets back from a week's vacation in Baltimore, just
in time for exams. "Pop's" teeth seem to need more attention than our simple college
fare would warrant. I smell a rat.
Mar. 1 4th. — Some depraved wretches, hypnotized into the notion that they were
hungry, attempted a raid on the pantry last night. Mr. Sturgis (assisted by the
Senior night owls) drove off the enemy before much damage had been done. Who
lost a bayonet? Certainly no one claims it.
Mar. 1 5th. — Ten week students take their departure. Brack wears a white shirt
and collar for the first time since he landed among us. No drill, nobody beating the
sick list. Everybody "getting it in the neck" in exams.
Mar. 16th. — Several Seniors have pictures taken for the Reveille. "Shall I mail
your proofs?" "Thank you, no, but I shall call for them. Miss — — ." Wonder why?
Mar. I 7th. ^ — O'Connor decorates his wrist band as usual. Blankman betrays
his nationality by humming "The Wearin' o' the Green," to the surprise of all.
Mar. 18th. — "Socks" Trimble inquires if anyone has a second hand baby car-
riage for sale cheap. He fails to find a suitable one in the barracks.
Mar. 1 9th. — Sunday O. D. called up to entertain some fair visitors. They
request him to procure them each a glass of real country milk. He informs them that
the new patented milk machine has broken down, and that the institution is not intended
as a benefit to weary travelers, anyway.
A VIEW FROM THE BARRACKS
JUST BEFORE DRILL
Mar. 20th. — (Discussion of Banquet at Senior class meeting).
Mudd: — But, Mr. President, won't "Cab" object if he sees wine on the table in
the Reveille picture?
Devilbisss: — Aw! what's the difference. He can't smell booze in a picture.
Mar. 21st. — First Senior: — I guess "Baldy" was glad to see Irwin, Connor and
Ralston leave today.
Secord Senior: — Why?
First Senior: — It will save him bushels of time reading out the delinquency
Mar. 22nd. — Blankman gets a big express package. Looks pretty good. He
sends (?) out to the highways and byways to bid fellows to the feast. The wonderful
box is opened — rags, stones and sticks. Stung again! Will never mortal man be
Mar. 23rd. — First baseball game of the season. Cold and windy. Flurry of
srow interrupts the game, but we had time to run up a score of 8^ — 2 against Western
High School. "Bommy" gives a curt apology and severe scolding all in the same
breath. How about it. Seniors? You rvill get rasty in classroom, will you? Better
hand your next theme in on time if you want the genial smile again. Perhaps the next
time he says he won't have our themes after a certain date, he will really mean it.
Mar. 24th. — Holiday. Cadet Rasmussen wins the Warner medal for best
Marylard Day address. He deHvered decidedly the best speech of the day.
The fatted shad is killed and the largest oysters are gathered from their native
Mar. 25th. — The day appointed for Senior Festivities is at hand. At 9 P. M.
the feast is spread at Harvey's and the features of the evening pass with splendor
ad eclat, demonstrating to all the peerless banqueting ability of our class.
Mar. 26th. — Chief Tydings and Herschel Allen pay us a visit. Much surprised
to observe the increase in dignified bearing of the newly acquired M. A. Caesar.
Mar. 27th. — Prof. Sauter had an accident in the machine shop. He got it on
the head, only a trifle amount of damage being done, barring a dent in the anvil.
Mar. 28th. — Cadet Lears complains of "unjust" and continued provocation, to
which he has been subjected, necessitatmg the use of stronger language, on his part, than
the conventional type.
Mar. 29th. — Our baseball team is prevented by April showers from giving
Georgetown the worst trimming they have ever had in their lives. Reese gives an im-
promptu minstrel show, Silvester wielding the burnt cork.
Mar. 30th. — Some of "Baldy's" wires got crossed down in the shooting gallery
and the whole building is terrorized by incipient conflagration. "Cab" gets excited
but is soon consoled by his dutiful nephew and quieted by the fire extinguisher.
Mar. 31 St. — What is "Ada," a girl's name, or a variety of strawberries? Ask
Apr. 1 St. — Suckers will bite altho All Fools Day has become hoary with age.
Mudd K. gets a sweetly (?) scented letter, and Cobey gets sent on a wild goose chase.
Chas. S. stands pat on the solemn noises.
Apr. 2nd. — Lacrosse game with U. of Md. They only came for a practice game,
but after "Gus" had laid open one of their heads, and "Terrible" had gotten the bald
headed man's goat, and Ritter had added the finishing touches, they were not quite so
confident. Score, 3 — 3.
Apr. 3rd. — Ducket pitches a victorious game against the Deaf Mutes, score 8 — 6.
Ray for Bladensburg! Rat rules go into effect. "Finn out." "Turn that corner
squarely." Put your hands under the table.
Apr. 4th. — McBride elected President of the Y. M. C. A. A wise terrae filius
from Frederick County. He promises big things for next year's Y. M. C. A. and we
believe he will make an earnest effort to hold to his work.
Apr. 5th. — The innocent must suffer for the guilty. The truth of this maxim was
demonstrated on Gill and "Eazy" today when the O. C. reported them for disorder
that they did not create. 1 he slickest rogues never get caught. Oh, you mischievous
Apr. 6th. — Tie Navy in baseball, 15 innings 1 — 1. School turns out to meet
team. "Boo hoo" and "Cab" called on for impromtu speeches. "Commy" sends us
word that he is not at home. Next everybody takes a free joy ride on a trolley car
while "the band plays on. " See the conquering heroes come. Much big bonfire.
Apr. 7th. — Holiday because, you see, it should be Arbor Day and. Ah! well, we
were such good little boys the day before. The fellows loaf around like lost and begin
to get homing fever.
Apr. 8th. — Rock Hill, 3; M. A. C, 5. Many took "parents" requests (wonder
how they secured them so quickly) to the President this morning, which he accordingly
approved. Great migration of M. A. Ceasars.
Apr. 9th. — "Long John" White makes his debut into College Park society. An-
other victim of the S. U. B.'s. Pretty day. Fellows either go walking or to church.
Glass spoke at Y. M. C. A. tonight.
Apr. 1 0th. — First normal attack of the season. "Commy" busy whipping Bat-
tahon into shape for inspection. True leads his company in normal attack on a passing
Apr. 1 1th. — Glass has a birthday. In an evil moment he divulges the secret and
promptly receives his reward — three times three with the paddle. "Bommy" fails to
meet the Bible class tonight.
Apr. 12th. — School closes at noon for the Easter Holidays. Students start to
mutiny against drill. "Commy" preaches them a sermon. Everybody gulps dinner
and vamooses. Some few decide to stay thru the holidays.
Apr. 1 8th. — Everybody back on time, but grumbling about such a short holiday.
Nobody thinks about studies until the Y. M. C. A. President sends his messengers
around. Then the pile of lessons to be studied for tomorrow is quickly brought to mind —
and as soon forgotten. The Pres. -elect, McBride, gives a description of his recent
trip to the convention at Amherst College.
Apr. 1 9th. — Strenuous drill in preparation for coming inspection. Fourth period
seems to have been mysteriously cut short. "Commy" becomes a deep student of the
Apr. 20th. — Senior Chemists take a trip to Alexandria, Va. Very much pleased
with this ancient city — especially the sweetly scented breezes from the fertilizer factories,
and the lightning quick waiters in Martha Washington Cafe.
Apr. 21st. Baseball team starts on its Southern trip. "Commy" throws up
his hands in helpless dismay to see "Pop" and "Devil" go down the path. Everything
is working against Inspection. Dress parade. Guard Mount, and Escort of the Colors
after supper. Call to Quarters at eight o'clock.
Apr. 22nd. — Saturday. Cash plentiful from the recent visit to Father. Every-
body goes to town. The Gayety does a rushing business.
Apr. 23rd. — No one goes to church but Anderson. Everybody cleaning house
for Inspection. "Commy" holds class for Seniors after Chapel. Seniors turn in their
long deferred naps.
Apr. 24th. — Classes until 10:30, then drill, drill, and after dinner, still some more
drill. Battahon charged in double time from Cat tail Hill to College Avenue. When
we reached the Avenue, we were already vanquished, and the enemy would have had an
easy job dispatching us.
Apr. 25th. — The great day of the year has arrived. Did "Commy" pray for
fair weather? A day more ideal could not be imagined. The drill all went smoothly.
Ceremonies and close order in the morning while in the afternoon, we again laid low
the hostile hordes intrenched behind College Avenue. We next showed how to defend
Fort Conley from attack and then to build a bridge on which Washington could have
crossed the Delaware. Did we make the "Big Ten?" Well! If we didn't, it wasn't
Apr. 26th. — Everybody snores at chapel, but it brought us no holiday. No drill
today. Hurrah for the "Big Chief!"
"Commy" has Seniors in his office and expresses to them his satisfaction at yes-
Apr. 27th. — Fire drill. Battalion tumbles down stairs and outdoors in one grand
conglomeration. Building deluged (by leaking hose) until it had the appearance of a
relic from the Johnstown flood.
April 28th. — "Mouse" gives an amateur exhibition of the Snake Charmer's art.
Chuck Colburn receives a shock. Three Rays for Lindsay. Three Rays for M. A. C.
What's the matter with the classical colleges where they teach oratory?
Apr. 29th. — Baseball team defeats Delaware College, 6 — 4. Lots of queens
out to the game. Everybody happy.
Apr. 30th. — Reveille goes to press. A member of the class of 1912 now stands
at my side waiting to take up the pen that I lay down.
The good ship 1911 has passed the stormy waters but she is now in calmer seas,
and the lookout is shouting "Land Ahoy!" Ere many days she shall dock at the last
port of her voyage, and her crew of twenty shall scatter far and wide. May this log
serve in future years to each and every one of us as a treasured key to fond memories.

^T[ HE WEST is golden with the setting sun and the shadows are creeping up the
111 eastern horizon. Our day, dear friends, is drawing to a close. We thank you
^■^ for your kind attention and hope we may have been a source of both pleasure and
profit to you. If in the personal biographies, applied quotations. Diary, or any-
where in this book, there is anything you do not like, we feel sure that you will not feel
offended, for no offense was intended, and we have said nothing that was meant to be
discreditable to anyone.
We beg you further, not to criticise us too severely for in a publication of this
character written by a few students outside of their regular collegiate work some errors
and inadvertencies were inevitable.
As in our greeting we coaxed you out upon the campus in the joyful brightness of
morning, so now, as the buglers are blowing Retreat and the flag is being furled for the
night, let us gather up our rolls of parchment, our portfolios of pictures and sketches, our
cushion and go in to the evening meal ; for the clouds will soon float down to give the
grass a refreshing draught of dew and so we shall not enjoy reclining upon the bosom of
Mother Nature in the dampness of night.
"Farewell, a word which must be and hath been
A sound which makes us linger; yet — Farewell."
T^HESE friends of ours have helped ma=
terially in the publishing of this book
by their financial assistance. We know they
will give you a square deal and we trust you
will favor them with your patronage.

J. BOLGIANO & SON
We want to tell you something about the wonderful progress we have
made on several vital and important lines during the year just passed
Under the direct personal supervision of a former U. S. Department
of Agriculture expert, who is now associated with us, we have es-
tablished an up-to-date completely equipped Seed analysing and
Seed Testing Laboratory. We are, therefore not only prepared to
supply you with Trustworthy Seeds grown from the purest, truest
and most carefully bred seed stocks in the world, but we are pre-
pared to give you at all times accurate and scientific information
about any of our seeds in which you are interested. Our Trust-
worthy Seeds more than comply in purity, cleanliness and quality with every requirement of the Virginia
State Seed Law and the Seed Laws of all other States in the Union— they are truly STANDARD SKEDS
in all that the term implies.
Our New Scientific
Our JWammoth New
Pier and Warehouses
As stated heretofore we have pvirchased and added to our estab-
lishment one of the tinest water front properties in the city of Bal-
timore. This mammoth new property is conveniently located
near our main offices and salesrooms and just opposite the new ten
million dollar city docks. It extends from Rupert street on the
M-est— for almost five hundred feet east along Montgomery street to
the harbor, with three hundred and seventy-five feet of private
dockage on our own piers. All the railroads and steamship com-
panies entering Baltimore deliver freight to our piers without extra charge, thus saviui; thousands of
dollars in drayage. In our new piers and warehouses we have over seventy-live thousand scjuare feet of
floor space which include our onion set and seed potato warehouses, bulk seed and grain warehouses and
our immense new poultry food manufacturing plant, also our special grass, clover and Held seed cleaning
machinery. AVith our complete modern new automatic machinery it is possible for us to unload a car
load of grain or field seeds, weigh, thoroughly clean and reload in the same or another car in a very
Our Wonderful New
Poultry Food Factory
We have installed a wonderful new poultry food plant capable of
producing three thousand bags of "Square-Deal" Poultry Food per
day. This is about fifteen times our former capacity. We are
therefore fully prepared to take care of our rapidly increasing bus-
iness on "Square-Deal" Scratch F'ood, "Sciuare-Deal" Chick Starter,
"Square-Deal" Chick Food and "S(|iiare Deal" Pigeon Food— all
the various grains and seeds are delixered free to our pier — handled
right from the cars by automatic machinery, cleaned, milled —
scientifically proportioned— bulked — mixed — weighed — bags sewed— and the finished foods automatically
conveyed back to the cars on our pier — all by machinery under the careful adjustment and control of
ovir expert poultry food specialists.
With the above record we believe we can truthfully say we are 93
years young. We are luider great ()l)iigations to you for yovir gen-
erous and increased i)atr(>nage anil wedccplj' appreciate the many
words of kindness and praise for our goods you have sent in during
the past year. We shall strive harder than ever to merit them.
Good seed are at the bottom of all good agriculture — they are the
foundation stones. Success is not possible without them. In the
future as in the past, it shall be our constant effort to supply you at
all times with the very best seed that can be produced anywhere and at any price. Our chief ambition
for 1911 is to make happy and more prosperous every customer of our house.
