To 

MYRON CREESE 

As a slight token 

Of its respect and affection 

For one who has gladly 

Given his best efforts 

To prepare us for the battles of manhood; 

Who has instilled 

Maryland's ideals 

In each and every one^ 

That knowing we may follow 

Successfully^ 

The Class of Nineteen- Twelve 

Dedicates this Reveille. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



Professor Myron Creese 

Professor Myron Creese was born in the small town of Red Rock, situated in the 
northwestern section of Pennsylvania. During his l)oyhood he attended school in 
Union City, Pennsylvania, and upon the completion of his course at the High 
School matriculated at the Pennsylvania State College ; from which he was gradu- 
ated in June 1905, with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. 
Upon graduation he was awarded the T. W. White Fellowship and was thus enabled 
to prosecute his studies for the degree of Electrical Engineer, which he received in 
June, 1906. 

During his undergraduate career at the Pennsylvania State College Professor 
Creese was closely identified with many phases of its life other than the purely 
scholastic. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Fraternity, served as major 
of the Cadet Battalion, and participated in a number of other activities of the 
college, particularly athletics. 

In 1906, Professor Creese was appointed instructor in electrical engineering at 
the Pennsylvania State College. When the Department of Electrical Engineering 
was established at the Maryland Agricultural College, Professor Creese was re- 
quested to accept a position at the institution and assist in the development of the 
new department. Through his earnest efforts and his fidelity to the cause, the 
department was brought to its present state of efficiency. As a reward for his 
services he was appointed professor of electrical engineering and physics in June, 
1911. 

Professor Creese is an associate member of the American Institute of Electrical 
Engineers. 

The Class of 1912 has a keen appreciation of the efforts of Professor Creese in 
its behalf and of his uniform kindness and unfailing courtesy under all circumstances. 

Professor Creese is but starting upon his chosen career, and from our association 
with him as a teacher and as a friend, we know that it will be a most successful 
one.

The Senior Class 



Mo more cadets and schoolboys, but Officers and Men. 
Their school-work near complete, now look they out 

On life's bright path through window hiding moor and fen, 
Revealing only moimtain tops, visions that route 
All fears, misgivings, clouds — dispelling every doubt. 

Now dazzling dreams of noble work for home. 
For Country and for God — of victory indeed. 

Gilds every view, swells every heart. Where'er they roam 
The paths drop fatness, dreams come true! May all succeed, 
The Reveille reflects the wish of all — Godspeed.

Robert Lee Tolson 



There was something in his face, 

There was something in his eyes, 
Like a light of sacred grace, 

Like a beaming of the skies. 
There was something in his tread, 

That was proud as well as fine ; 
And the way he held his head 

Made him king along the line.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Lieutenant Fulton W. Allen, Company C Salisbury, Md. 

Horticultural 

" This, gentlemen, is the skull of a nine-year-old mvle." 

This dismal landscape is our prize 
from the Senate Chamber. Yep, he 
is argumentation personified. Of late 
he has become quite an exponent of 
the ''I think," and the "It seems to 
me," theories; which same theories if 
left to develop themselves, bid fair to 
make him a most successful "ward- 
heeler" or a "stump-politician." 

Fulton has become quite famous in 
his athletic accomplishments. Any eve- 
ning one might find him in the gym 
doing some of his various acrobatic 
stunts, what ain't. He can walk on 
his hands and stand on his head much 
better than upon his feet ; in fact we be- 
lieve this inverted position to be the 
cause of the incoherent line of talk 
which usually comes to us upside 
down. 

As for his music? Well, Allen is 
more or less of a shining light in har- 
mony's realm. That "ragtime" violin which he so ardently grinds is the joy of 
our hearts. He can get more squeaks, grunts and groans out of that box, than 
any other being in existence. We will forgive Fulton everything however, if he will 
only take "ye old fiddle" with him when he makes his getaway in June. 

Like all great artists his weakness is along the petticoat-line. In three guesses 
we wager you couldn't strike it right. You lose ! It's neither the tall and willowy, 
nor the medium. Nay, nay, Pauline. It's the plump damsel who gets him every 
time. He's not satisfied with a "rag a bone and a hank of hair," but he wants 'em 
fleshy too. In fact we almost believe that the greater the avoirdupois the greater 
his love. But beware old scout, for it is said that, "The female of this species is 
more deadly than the male." (Excuse me, Kipling.) 




MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE

Lieutenant Franklin E. Anderson, Company B Childs, Md. 

Agronomy 

" Methi7iks I am marvelous hairy about the face." 

Sophomore Year, Corporal; Vice President of Y. M. C. A. Junior Year, Sergeant. Senior 
Year, President of Morrill Literary Society; Senior Class Editor of Triangle; Class Prophet. 

Bang! Bang! "Doggone it. I'll 
wager, that's those fellows dinnping 
rats. I don't think I ought to allow 
that. Do you? Well I'll stop it any- 
way." 

At first the uncovered pedal of a 
mighty colossus appears. Then, as it 
were to fiu'ther our thoughts of this an- 
cient personage, we see the many folds 
of his white tunic. But hist! Was 
ist? The man does not belie the foot. 
Colossus? No. A mere man comes 
forth, tip-toeing, noiseless as his silent- 
shod, red-skin brother, until, yes until 
he has found the ever-awaiting splin- 
ter. Anderson the sleuth is prowling! 

Lo, who is this we see hobbling doA\ n 
the steps of Science Hall, with an ear of 
corn in one hand and a bunch of cow- 
peas in the other. A miniature Grass- 
hopper, of course. Upon approaching 
a little closer we again meet Anderson, 
yes Anderson who has just returned from Chicago. But oh that walk. ''What 
a queer walk?" Hush! Silence! Speak not thus, if you have any respect for 
your face and adjoining anatomy. For this is a man of miracles and does mar- 
velous things ; and you will agree with me when I relate to you the cause of his 
present condition. 

While in Chicago, judging a herd of Jerseys, one of them stepped on his toe, at 
which he became exceedingly angry and exclaimed, ''Oh, sugar cowie! Now get 
off my toe." And the story is told that the judges dropped as if dead, all of Chicago 
was shocked, and even the poor dumb cows in the arena trembled with fear. While 
in this chaos our team captured the cup and started direct for M. A. C. at such a 
terrific speed that no speedometer could record it.

Lieutenant Adjutant Earl V. Benson 

Horticultural 

"So sweet and gentle arid yet so prim." 

Sophomore Year, Color Sergeant. Junior Year, Secretary Y. M. C. A., '11, '12. 
Treasurer, Rossbourg Club: Social Editor, Reveille. 



Baltimore, Md. 



Senior Year, 



This inoffensive youth with the face 
of a Fisher girl is the possessor of the 
temperament of a two-year-old kitten 
and the grim faithfulness of an English 
bulldog. 

As a society man Earl V., better 
known as "Sister," is an up-to-date 
success, so we are told. Continually 
lamenting the fact that his time is so 
taken up with social duties; brass but- 
tons to polish, hair to cut and pumps to 
shine, 'tis no wonder he does not miss 
an opportunity to indulge in frivolity, 
and that the girls all love him. Oh! 
how distressing is cruel Fate to the 
deserving. 

As a military man "Sister" cannot 
be beaten. This year he was Com- 
mandant of Cadets and had for his 
valet Johnny Upham and for his sec- 
retary Jimmy Elbel. It is seldom that 
two dogs will obey one master so faith- 
fully, yet it is the case, and all that is needed is the first note of the whistle. 

Generally speaking, Earl has a countenance that isn't so awfully bad to look 
upon. Now, gentle reader, don't interpret that to mean that we consider him 
handsome. Far be it from. However, his beautifully plastered blonde hair really 
does give him a comely aspect. 

Notwithstanding these facts we have to give it to him that he is some gardener. 
We predict that it will not be so many centuries before he will be growing sweet 
lemons and peeless oranges on the same tree. Still Earl modestly denies any such 
intentions but, 

"To say why gals act so and so or don't, 
Ud be presumming. 
For maybe to mean 'j'es' and say 'no' 
Comes natural to woman."

Senior Private Earl R. Burrier 

Electrical Engineering 
"A Noisij Man'' 



Baltimore, Md. 



Sophomore Year, Corporal. Junior Year, Chief Trumpeter, Band; Treasurer Rossbourg 
Club; Vice President Rifle Club. Senior Year, President Rifle Club; President Rossbourg 
Club; Treasurer Reveille Association. 

Honest though, we didn't intend to 
supply Darwin's ^^ missing link" on 
this page, but merely to furnish 
an ordinary illustration from Ernest 
Thompson Seaton's book, Wild Ani- 
mals; I Have Met. This particular 
brute is Earl Roscoe Burrier, dubbed 
"George" and called "Erb" for short. 

Born a musician, educated to know 
that his music is a silent vibration of 
the constituent parts of one Heinze 
tomato can, aged to produce that qual- 
ity familiar to us all as "discord;" anc 
finally culminated by a "throne" at 
the Senior Private's table, are cold 
facts for which he should now be "do- 
ing time." Although possessed of a 
strong, reverberating, richly modu- 
lated voice, eloquence is not "Erb's" 
forte. Noise is his specialty He has 
more brands of excruciating noises 
tucked away in his anatomy than was 
ever heard in a 4th of July celebration. 

The worst of it is he is always looking around for new acoustic fields to conquer. 
In pursuance of this occupation, we wish to take this opportunity to state that 
he has played at one time or another every instrument of torture in the band, 
and as yet none has quite come up to his ideal. 

Last year "Erb" was elected to the presidency of the "Student Strap-hangers 
Association." This fraternity held its meetings every Friday night, and some- 
times on Saturday also. 

This year however the weekly meetings are held in Baltimore and thus he is 
relieved of the inconvenience of paying his fare, a nickel at a time. Needless to 
say, it is a "Co-ed" association.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Lieutenant Nokman L. Clark, Companj^ A Laurel, Md. 

Electrical Eng"neering 
"Is he great because he speaks large words?" 

Junior Year, Sergeant; President Glee Club; Class Poet. Senior Year, Assistant Busines^ 
Manager Reveille; Secretary Boxing Club; Secretary Rossbourg Club. 



Yes, that telioligical Avord "Spar" 
rhymes with Laur — , afar, and car, 
but gentle reader take it from me, they 
used to be connected not only rythmi- 
cally with Spar but very intimately 
also. Nuf Sed about the past. 

Spartails modestly says he will be a 
Great Engineer, get wise to the capital 
"G," and we believe he has already 
secured an option on several tablets in 
the Hall of Fame, or perhaps on the 
Prof's Hall. Did you say Family? 
Now let me tell you the secret about 
the "Family." You understand, "The 
more a fellow eats the Moore he wants 
to eat, and there is but one way 
around it. You know, cause and 
effect — action and reaction. Spar is 
the action but — there must be a reac- 
tion somewhere." 



'Tis all right. When it comes to music — well, Norman is there. 
"If you ever heard him 'rag' it, 
You would shout, 'Quick fellows ''bag" it.' 
For he's as precious as the wallet of a multi-millionaire!" 

A debater. Ah, the very pillars of the Senate-chamber have never heard the 
voice equal to the one of this man, verily I say unto you, if you have a barn to sell 
or a patent medicine to vend call on our only and original. 

Of prospects we can say nothing, he does all the saying himself when he predicts 
that his first job (nothing smaller than bell-boy, janitor or valet) will produce a 
change of momentous importance. What it is we cannot guess, but someone said 
an endowment to an Orphan Asylum — no, not a financial one. From the way he 
downs the hash we will say that it had better be a charitable offering to a chop- 
hoase.

Senior Private Showell C. Dennis 

Chemical 



Ocean City, Md. 



"Be a sport if you only last a minute." 

Sophomore Year, Corporal; Secretary and Treasurer Class; Member Imperial Order Muti- 
neers. Senior Year, President New Mercer Literary Society. 

Just look again at the face in the 
upper right-hand corner of this page 
and see how much is there that you had 
not noticed before. Note the sparkle 
in those eyes. Ireland can well be 
proud of her donation to American man- 
hood. Why even his hair is blessed 
with a ruddy complexion which is 
much more apparent in real life than 
the picture would lead one to believe. 

"Reds" is one of our chemical men 
and he has really made some marvelous 
discoveries along the line of chemical 
research. For instance, he has ascer- 
tained definitely, that when a red head, 
an Irish temper, and unruly chemicals 
are brought into combination, an ex- 
plosion is the inevitable result ; and the 
only wonder to us is that the lid has not 
been blown off the "Chem Lab" long 
ago. Thus far however, the damages 
have been confined to blown out sinks 
and shattered glassware; except one 
day when he spilled a tube of sulfuric acid on his stool and got up with the map of 
Ocean City etched into the bosom of his trousers, but luckily it went no further 
than that. 

But if the chemicals in the compound mentioned above are replaced by peanuts, 
then there is another phenomenon which can be appreciated only by those who 
have witnessed it. If you wish to see him in his glory however, just give him a 
pipe and an attentive audience and then be prepared to hear some of the most 
miraculous tales that the Eastern Shore can produce. Because Dennis certainly 
handles the truth in a careless manner, even for an Eastern Shoreman. For if 
you'll believe it (but very few will) Ocean City is the most wonderful spot on the 
map — outside of Charles County.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Senior Private Allen B. Duckett Bladensburg, Md. 

Horticultural 



"A divinity in disguise {well disguised)." 

Sophomore Year, "M" in football, and in track. Junior Year, Captain Track Team; "^I" 
in baseball, and in track. Senior Year, \'ice President Boxing Club. 

This l^ristle-haired gink is one of the 
Burg's choicest blossoms and they sure 
did hate to let him go; so much so that 
ihey made him promise to come home 
every evening for fear that those bad 
rah! rah! boys would ])e rude to him, 
or corrupt his morals. But take it from 
the scril^e, kind reader, you can't un- 
rotten a rotten egg. 

Yet he of the ministerial aspect and 
<>entle voice, is by nature an athlete. 
He can run well, any bad debt can do 
that; he can play ball, any grass-eater 
can do likewise; finally he can play 
football and is more or less one of '' Boo- 
hoo's" favorites. Yea bo, but how the 
Duke does love the "Deutcher Stu- 
dieren." He can detect "Boohoo's" 
cough a mile off on a foggy day, so look 
for the usual formula, late car. 

A fair dame once accused "Sonny" 
of looking like Duke, so "Sonny" hasn't 
spoken to her since? Can you blame 
him? Study the picture carefully girls and give us your candid opinion. Send 
answers to the Puzzle Editor. Still, the girls are just crazy about him and simply 
will not let him alone. They say that he has such a bunch of their photographs in 
his room that he has often to sleep on the roof so as not to disturb their quarrels 
over him. 

For a long while we were doubtful as to whether this class would get him or 
whether he would go with that maudlin crowd — the class of '11. But fortune 
smiled on us and he gives promise of graduating \v ith one of the best classes that 
ever entered old M. A. C.

Senior Private Walter A. Furst Baltimore, Md. 

Electrical Engineering 
"i/e is a good Electrical man, but of Calculus he knows nichts." 

Junior Year, Chairman May Ball Floor Committee; Sergeant. Senior Year, Chairman 
Floor Committee Rossbourp; Club; M. A. A. in football. 

This saintly visage here exposed to 
view is the exclusive property of Walter 
A. Furst, known to all of us as " Fuzzy." 
Such a perfect example of contentment 
one rarely sees, notwithstanding the 
fact that his troubles are not few. W. 
A. F. has grown very popular with the 
Profs since he entered these grim 
walls, and his popularity is still gro'wing. 
Doc Tolly says, "Men may come and 
men may go, but Calculus conditions 
stay on forever." 

One of his greatest accomplishments 
and the pride of his heart is his walk, 
which to the casual observer is a most 
perfect imitation of an intoxicated 
duck. Fuzzy likes it, and we almost 
believe admires it, so for that and vari- 
ous other reasons we endure it. 

Did you say Art? Believe me this 
specimen is right there on the art stuff. 
Such an artist in fact, that his signa- 
ture is an exact duplicate of Harrison- 
Christy. Even Myron has begun to realize that he moves in a world different from 
us human beings, and has gone so far as to allow him, on a number of occasions, to 
use his pet lathe. 

A deep baritone voice, which is the closet human approximation to a dying calf, 
still another of his proud accomphshments; and his classmates are unanimous in 
their opinion, that if he lives long enough, and a sufficiently great change takes 
place in his vocal chords, it is just possible that some day he may be able to attract 
Caruso's attention (by disturbing the peace). After considering the kind offer of 
the B. & O. Railroad to supply him with the necessary appliances to become an 
electrical engineer, he decided upon the course in that science; hence the infliction 
of "Fuzzy" upon us as a freshman in the fall of nineteen hundred and nine.

Senior Private W. S. Grace Easton, Md. 

Civil Engineering. 
"Caesar had his Brutus, Charles II his Cromwell, and hy heck I have my Doc Tolly." 

Vice President Senior Class; Manager May Ball, '11; Assistant Manager baseball, '11; 
Sergeant Junior Year, Secretary New Mercer Literary Society, '11; Member Students' Con- 
ference Committee, '11; Manager Baseball, '12; Secretary Athletic Association, '12; Chairman 
Student Assembly, '12. 

Bill, alias Frog, the alway present 
uncalled-for factor, is one of the small 
raw products of the Eastern Shore. 
Yet he never tries to conceal the fact 
of his habitation, especially if the sub- 
ject under discussion is a pile of oyster 
shells or musk-rat skins. Bill is the 
big cheese when it comes to intelligent 
looks, acquired by persistent posing 
before the looking glass. 

To show his high degree of intelli- 
gence in the business line, Bill organ- 
ized a corporation of which he made 
himself President. This organization 
under his leadership will undertake 
all sorts of Engineering Problems, but 
its main efforts will be put in "Engi- 
neering Love Affairs." Special rates 
will be given to Major Kemp, E. Z. 
Martz, and members of the Senior 
Class. 

As a joker Bill has the whole Class 
beaten a country mile. You might be 
able to conquer his wit but you will never be able to tame it. If you want to find 
Bill in a crowd, drawling his grossly-worthless, affected phrases, look for his pipe. 
As sheriff of the high perch of the New Barracks he holds full sway with his "rat 
brigade." 

"Wie gehts, Cy Perkins! I deputize thee to fix my bed." As soon as E. Z. 
Martz makes his appearance he is saluted with the following, "Speaking of cheese, 
Martz, how do you feel?" Immediately poor Martz is forced to retreat at the 
onslaught of the well organized "rat brigade."

Lieutenant Hugh C. Gill, Company B Baltimore, Md. 

Biological 
"//e looks innocent, but beware, still water flows deep." 



Splash! Splash! "Hark! Listen!" 
And out of the impenetrable depths 
of Paint Branch comes the faint speck 
of light to us. All amazed we proceed 
through the darkness to investigate 
this particular "Maid o' the Mist." 
Silence. A voice is heard to utter, 
"Goll-durned dat frog, I'll git him yet, 
I must have him or else Prof. C will 
credit me with a juicy zip tomorrow." 
We venture a little closer, and to our 
astonishment l)ehold our friend Gill 
standing in four feet of water and strug- 
gling with a huge bull-frog. The battle 
rages and the water surges to and fro, 
but at last he lands his victim safe on 
shore. Alas, the day is won and we are 
just ready to congratulate him — when 
we are aroused from our dreams bj' 
the first call for reveille. 

In physics Gill was a walking en- 
cyclopedia. He spent much of his 
time during the first year in investi- 
gating physical phenomena. In view of this fact. Professor Creese, each day played 
upon his knowledge of physics like a perpetual dynamo. 

As a social man he stands in the very heights of society. It is a known fact, how- 
ever, that it was not until his Senior year that he could have the courage to ask 
eine Frau out to a Rossburg. "He loves the dance, but oh my, the preliminaries." 
Being very sedate he is necessarily admired greatly by the fair ones. Much time 
is spent when he is preparing for the ballroom, for each hair on his head must lie 
at its proper angle and the brass buttons on his evening dress shine like jewels. 
Never mind, Gill; keep it up, for neatness and pleasing countenances will be sure to 
win you a charming companion to help make life a flowery vale when we have 
departed, one from another.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Major William B. Kemp "Welcome, Md. 

Agriculture 

"0/ all sad words of tongue or quill, 
The saddest are these — ■' Take a look at Bill.' " 

Junior Year, First Sergeant, Company C; Treasurer; Captain, Football Team; Manager 
Track Team; Class Editor Triangle; Chairman Students' Conference Committee. Senior 
Year, Secretary of Class; Athletic Editor Reveille; Member Stock Judging Team; Member 
Students' Conference Committee; "M" in Football, '10; Track, '11, '12; "M" and Star in 
Football, '11, '12. 

To be candid we are fortunate in 
possessing this photo of one of the few 
white inhabitants of Charles Countj^, 
alias "God's County." "Bill" says 
that all wise people come from that 
county and we heartily agree with him 
on that point — the wiser they are the 
quicker they come. 

On bright sunny afternoons ''Bill" 
maybe seen strolling in the direction of 
the 'ville. The purpose of these walks 
no one can tell, but it has been sug- 
gested that the 'ville is noted for its spon- 
sorial records. At times he is even more 
mysterious in his actions, and like his 
wit, it is very difficult to determine the 
point at issue; but from experience 
"Bill" has learned to tell a joke, so 
when he laughr; Me swell the chorus. 
However, he really has a very well 
developed sense of humor and can 
always see the joke — afterwards. 
Sometimes the "Big Chief" gets 
real serious, especially when a rebellion is started at the Senior Privates' table. He 
was made major merely to keep the Senior Privates from tearing off the roof, and 
the minor duty of making inspections twice a week to see if the room were still there. 
Kemp is an ardent student, and is very much interested in the subject, "Devia- 
tions in the cracks of Pennsylvania Avenue." When cornered he is some runner 
too, and recently broke all records in running from the brickyard in Bladensburg 
to College in 1.10 flat. 

But we have learned only a few of "Bill's" vices and less of his virtues.

No, this is not Ichabod Crane, nor 
is it the "Class Mascot;" and we really 
didn't put it in here as a joke. In fact 
he is a real human being just like we 
are, even though he is from the East- 
ern Shore. Yes we have quite a few 
''oystermen" in our midst, and in fact 
find them a great benefit, in that they 
furnish such fine examples of prehis- 
toric man. 

But to return to Lednum (by the 
way that name is not pronounced 
lead-dome), for although very descrip- 
tive he mutters it a little differently. 
One of his chief characteristics is hi;; 
laugh. It is neither a guffaw nor a 
giggle, a snicker nor a a\ hinny, an audi- 
ble smile nor a sheepish grin; but can 
best be described as a cross bet^^een a 
yawn and a hiccough. It is ho"VAever 
entirely beyond human imitation. 

Yea, verily though "Curly" is some 
surveyor. He has made an exhaus- 
tive study on the extremely difficult and engrossing subject, "How to run a line 
without transit cross-hairs'' and "How to survey without removing the dust-shield." 
"Doc" Tolly is continually harassing him on account of the ability he shows, 
and showers the most delightful and encouraging epithets upon him. However 
"Curly" is one of "Doc's" most faithful disciples and is in fact considerably 
efficient as a quill artist. 

Did you say a joker? Don't mentionit. "Curly" is a humorous guy all right, 
and some of the witticisms he inflicts upon his unoffending classmates are really 
heart-breaking. Really though he is awfully clevah, dontchu know, and his jokes 
and puns are exceptionally original — we don't think.

Senior Private Charles L. Linhardt Baltimore, Md. 

Mechanical Engineering 

''Just like a river. Small head and big mouth." 

Senior Year, Associate Business Manager Reveille. 

CharlesL. alias' 'Linny," is the only 
original, genuine, dyed-in-the-wool rat 
of the Senior Class, thank the Lord. 

After steering around the United 
States, like a ship with a broken rudder, 
he descended upon us last fall and may 
now be seen at "Cat's" emporium boss- 
ing the big jobs. "Hey, youse guys, 
get busy! 'Buck' Warton where did 
youse put dat jack?" By such familiar 
and entirely appropriate phrases, fre- 
quently used to bust in de haid uv uh 
burr el, we have an easy formula for 
differentiating him from the rest of the 
bunch. Speaking of differentiating, 
"Linny" is a lightning speed artist in 
this direction, and even his "feline 
majesty" has been known to open his 
eyes in astonishment, or despair, we 
don't know which. However ' ' Linny" 
has told us that he has already turned 
down offers from Cornell and Boston 
Tech to teach Calculus and English. 
"Whence cometh those wailings and gnashing of teeth?" 'Tis only a few of 
"Linny's" most intimate friends helping him to celebrate his birthday. The ban- 
quet which he tendered to his classmates was pronounced a splashing success, and 
will long be remembered with fondness by his friends ; needless to say Linny will 
also recomember. Our request that he stick around until we opened sundry bottles 
of glue, strap, grease and ink was received with the utmost willingness on his part. 
As a business manager " Linny's" lucky star shines at its brightest. In his short 
sojourn among us, the advertisers have come to know him by his first name; and he 
has really become quite famous, or notorious, by his tooth-pulling methods for the 
painless extraction of their hard-earned lucre. He is there with the frenzied 
finance all right. "No 'ads' today, solong!"

Delaware, but I crossed Paint Branch into Berwyn." 



Pinkney White Medal; President New Mercer Literary Society. 
Y. M. C. A.; Editor Triangle; Business Manager Reveille. 



Senior Year, President 



"Mac's" prime object in leaving the 
headlands of Frederick County was 
to show what a real live Y. M. C. A. 
President really is, and to become the 
Justice of the Peace of Berwyn. 

After a short course under "Bob" 
Tolson, during which time he became 
so crooked that he could only hide 
behind a corkscrew, he was ready to be 
elected President of the Y. M. C. A. 
In that capacity he is very adept at 
selling last year's Membership tickets 
at reduced rates (owes me $.50). 

Mac is strong on religion when not 
required to practice it. One Sunday last 
summer, while he remained at the Ex- 
periment Station to show the Staff 
everything about chemistry, he heard 
a Bell in the direction of Berwyn. I7e 
struck the trail, and was next seen in 
the home of the Justice of the Peace. 
Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 
as well as a few other days finds Mac on the job. 

"Stiff neck, 'Mac?'" "Isay 'Mac,' what makes your eyes so red?" These and 
similar questions were the outcome of McBride's short sojourn among the sky- 
scrapers and petite stenographers of Baltimore. "Mac," you see, has a peculiar 
fascination for the gaylights — -you understand, he is President of the Y. M. C. A. 

Between trips to Berwyn "Mac" occupies his time by editing the Triangle. 
"Good news — bad news — any kind of news, just make it News and we'll fire it 
in." To say this a-la-"Mac" assume a can't-get-home-until-morning expression, 
turn your toes in, and your knees out. All of the original that he prints comes from 
the back issues of the Baltimore Sun or the Frederick Bladder.

Buck Private S. Conrrado Martinez Honduras, Central America 

Agricultural 
".4 man whose love is all good grows into a spoiled child of forhme." 

''Oh deary! please don't mingle with 
those fair sex of the Anglo-Saxon race/' 
was the cunning request of the little 
Spanish queen when "Marty" took his 
sad departure from the South Sea 
Islands along about a decade before the 
discovery of the north pole (or one of 
the North Poles). 

" Ugh! el hogar nunca fue' como esto." 
This was about the first ejaculation 
attempted by this ''Chinese puzzle" 
when he landed here. But finally after 
spending several years of tireless re- 
search work under the careful super- 
vision of Professor T — , he concluded 
that the sweetest flower in all the parks 
was the "Howard." 

"Marty" is among the pioneers of 
the Class of Nineteen-dozen, and as an 
experimenter in regard to scholastic 
work he is a wonder, for he has tried 
every course offered at M. A. C, and 
now he is contemplating a course in 
ministry at Harvard. 
When the college band was organized, "Marty" proved himself to be one of the 
most efficient clarinet players obtainable, and after several years of successful play- 
ing, the Bandmaster decided to retire him on a pension consisting of one U. S. 
magazine rifle and a beautiful set of side arms. But this small misfortune did not 
tend to destroy his ambition, and before his furlough was clue, he rejoined the band 
for the good of the cause at the recent State Fair held at Clarktown, commonly 
known as Laurel. 

After graduating it is believed that he will return to his native country and 
immediately take up the teaching of agriculture. We all wish him success in all his 
undertakings, and I feel confident in saying that he will succeed, providing he does 
not fall in love with "The only one."

Sexior Private, Albert D. Martz Frederick, Md. 

Civil Engineering 
^^ 'Taint no matter at all, it's fresh cut." 

"Entered upon the books on the 
12th day of September— 1909, one 
Eee-Zee." So goes down upon the 
college records the number of Mr. 
E. Z. Martz, which same he has kept 
untarnished ever since. This year 
however there has been cjuite a turbu- 
lent reaction going on within that ivory 
dome, and now, really, he has begun 
to believe that he has been incorrectly 
labeled. "A large C. E. after my name 
is more to my liking than an E. Z. 
before it," so said Martz when given 
his choice of handles. 

His most beloved subject however is 
Political Economy, and he hopes to 
relieve the people of Frederick from the 
high cost of living by putting to prac- 
tical use the theoretical ideas that he 
has learned here by ardent erudition. 
Mr. Martz is much like the fairer sex. 
No matter what the conversation may 
be, whether he knows anything about 
it or not, he must have the last Avord, if it be but his old chestnut, "it is so because 
it is." 

"Beds. On-right-into-line (MARCH). Beds. (HALT.") Such sounds from 
the inside of Room 50 Old Barracks, have been causing the neighbors much worry 
of late. Upon investigation we found our youthful cadet merely practicing his 
ability to command. However the locked door seemed to indicate "Easy's" 
fear of wholesale desertion. But as a sample of a very original walk Martz possesses 
one imported from Frederick which has been unrivalled by any seen around the 
Park in late years. Cultivated by the rough undulations which one finds upon the 
face of the earth near his old homestead, such an amble would have to be acquired 
not merely purchased.

Senior Private Marion H. Melvin Crisfield, Md. 

Civil Engineering 

'^Lookout peacock, Fm here.'' 



This uncertified check arrived here 
from Milwaukee via Crisfield in '08 
and was immediately christened ' ' Kee- 
hee. ' ' To be sure the picture hardly does 
him due credit. To do this it would have 
to show his turkey walk and his kee-hee 
laugh, both of which are very notice- 
al)le when he and his rat friends are on 
the w\ayto see their "queens," which is 
why we wish to remark, that as a fusser 
tiie College must go some to find an- 
other of his caliber. Wonder what the 
leap-year will do for him; will it be a 
silk dress or a w4fe? 

' ' Fine feathers make fine birds ' ' — and 
he sure is a bird. Dressed in a brown 
suit, green hat and red tie, together 
\A ith a pair of take-me-home-for-$2.98 
pumps, he is some sport. Nicht Wahrf 
It wa- while dressed thusly one Satur- 
day evening he paid a visit to Mt. Ra- 
nier, just to look over some of the fair 
ones. His stay was short, the time con- 
sumed in leaving shorter, and the list of his wardrobe when checked at College 
Park was even shorter. 

As a civil engineer with the accent on "civil," he is there. Why he is so civil it 
hurts. The only one who doesn't appreciate Marion's engineering abilities is "Doc" 
Tolly; and we have been forced to conclude that "Doc" is jealous of "Kee-hee's" 
conversational alDilities. Yes, doubtless without a doubt. 

Despite the fact of his being the human fashion-plate, and a walking model of a 
college clothes-shop, we must admit that he is all right in his way but as he tips the 
scales at 89 — well. Next gentleman!

Principal Musician, J. Albert Miller Mt. Carmel, Md. 

"And must I work! Oh! what a waste of time." 

Junior Year, Sergeant Band. Senior Year, Chairman Music. Committee; Rossbourg Club. 
Chairman, Music Committee, June Ball. 

If happily you chance to spy a broad 
smile under the shade of a Pea-Cutting 
Hat roaming about the campus, you 
have seen the only and original "Josh." 

Since coming here though he has 
blossomed out, found a girl, shaves once 
in awhile, knows the opposite sex at 
sight, and believe me he is some dancer. 

However it may not be apparent to 
the casual observer but we can give you 
our word, the result of long and patient 
observation and endless data, that 
Albert is the most efficient (99.99%) 
bluffer in the class. 

It was once suggested to those in au- 
thority at the College that someone be 
hired to play the tenor horn. But 
while this proposal is being tied with 
red tape "Josh" has been graciously 
placed behind it, merely to keep the 
valves from rusting. His close associa- 
tion with this harmony (?) producer 
has led him to believe that he himself 

can sing tenor, yea verily; but the student body can bring forth an abundant proof 
that he has not the said voice. On such beautiful and uplifting hymns as the 
"Old Family Tooth Brush" and "Tell I—, I'll Be There" he wrecks terrible ven- 
geance. 

When it comes to Electricity, "Josh" and his Hydro-Hystre-Electro waves makes 
the present scientists sit up and take notice. Why fireworks and explosions are 
an everyday occurrence with him. In his marvelous research work he has dis- 
covered phenomena for which men like Edison and others would have given millions 
of thanks. We have his word on the subject that he don't know what it was, but 
it was just the same. 

Of his future we can say nothing, for he is one who may and who may not.

A glance at the visaged outline which 
smears the top of this page, and then to 
name it. Yes, it's "Keg," ''Hippo," 
"Judge" Mudd, a distinguished mem- 
ber of the Beef Trust. Hippo's mental 
capacity for the construction of soap- 
bubble castles has never reached its 
limit. Each day we find new designs. 
First a coal-yarcl construction in Egypt; 
then an ice-cream establishment in 
Greenland; and finally, by the aid of 
"Commy's" Tactics and "Kid" Sulli- 
van's brawn, he dreams of exterminat- 
ing all the "Dom Niggers" in Charles 
County. 

That fourth dimensional mind of his 
has afforded us much concern; for on 
particular occasions it allows him to 
forget how to spell that Polish first 
name of his, to keep late hours read- 
ing Athletic dope, and to indulge in a 
superabundance of classroom sleep. 
However, "Keg" is a charter member of the Invulnerable Order of Bachelors, 
Once and only once did he scrape up the nerve to go to see a fair one," and, 'tis said, 
he nearly talked her to death on "Re-inforced Concrete." However, although not 
so much of a fusser, he is mighty good at grabbing "Cab's" turkeys. He can tell 
you the first name of every turkey in the vicinity of College. 

Having roomed a while with "Posey" he has become quite a connoisseur of 
apples. His one regret is that his neck is not a mile long so that he could taste them 
all the way down.

In this cage we beg to present the 
Editor of this book so if there is any- 
thing in it you don't like just take it 
out on him. "Quick, Ignatz a brick!" 
Get wise to his mug because it will 
again appear in history. Although he 
possesses a handsome countenance 
(see cut) yet— ih — he is a man of mys- 
tery. Last year it was rumored that 
some deep, dark secret enveloped his 
life, for he was often seen returning to 
College about umty-steen o'clock p.m., 
with layers upon layers of mysterious 
red mud upon his shoes and carrying a 
red lantern. Now, however, curiosity 
is rife as to the meaning of certain mis- 
sives regularly delivered to him by the 
mails, from different places, yet invari- 
ably in the same handwriting. 

He has but one true love? — and only 
one. What's that? "Dat guy Creese." 
Now that peculiar twinkle in his left 
eye is not a mote nor a beam — it's love- 
light. Someone mentioned Myron's name just as the ''look pleasant" man pulled 
the switch. 

Often "Jock's" sweet tenor voice may be heard wafted softly through the College 
halls. One might mistake it for a nail being slowly and painfully drawn across a 
piece of glass. In fact, it is rumored that audiences all over the country have offered 
him large sums to keep off the stage. Be that as it may, his natural unselfishness 
prevents his considering us as unworthy of the melodious, hog-killing, drink-driving 
vocal misfortunes. Such good old German ballads as "The River Shannon" and 
"Just a Sprig of Shamrock" seem to be his favorite victims.

At'h, mein Freind! Don't mind that 
map of Charles County up there in the 
corner. It isn't accurate. It couldn't 
be. That phiz was never kept in any 
particular position long enough at one 
time to make it recognizable on a sec- 
ond meeting. Except when distorted 
in sleep, it's always folded up in some 
species of laughter. Gilbert is the big- 
gest, kindest, happiest and most irre- 
sponsible "gink" that ever flopped into 
this old "brain-factory." 

Deciding that horticulture and its 
accompaniments were best suited to his 
tastes, he was elected soon after his 
entrance to first vice presidency of 
"Becky's Apple Trust." As a reward 
for studiousness and arduous attention 
to his classes he was promoted to the 
position of night-watchman of the cor- 
poration, which he has filled with honor, 
and a laundry-bag ever since. 

Posey is some military genius all right 
and his proficiency in " f acetiousness at drill" has merited hearty praise from the 
War Department, via " Commy." He is seriously contemplating taking the exami- 
nation for second lieutenant in the U. S. Army, but we rather think it will be in the 
"Army of the Unemployed." 

At odd times during the night, however, one may locate him by discovering the 
other end of this poetic gem: 

"Apples are my second nature, 
I'll tell you why it's so, 
Apples suit my frail digestion 
Just 'cause I loves 'em bo."

Vice President of Class, Sophomore and Junior Years. Corporal, Sophomore Year. Junior

"Tub" Roby, the dainty little fairy, 
must have blown in from a region of 
fire and brimstone as he has been smok- 
ing ever since, the man that makes the 
tobacco business profitable. 

He is one of the future self-made men 
with a most sound policy in view, "Do 
not let studies interfere with the edu- 
cation." "Hippo" has been known to 
try every institution of learning in the 
state of Maryland, after a short stay at 
M. A. C, and then decided to return to 
this domicile, as life was getting a little 
too speedy. Believe me he was some 
fast tub, but he is sobering down now 
and getting so dignified that we are 
beginning to think he will soon be eli- 
gible for the clergy (comparatively 
speaking) . 

He is especially attracted to the mili- 
tary department, as it gives extensive 
opportunities to try out his vocal at- 
tainments when singing out commands, 
which are expressed in the musical "Col-yume right. Mar-r-rch." We don't 
know whether it was his musical abilities in giving commands or his military knowl- 
edge which made "Commy" give him the vacancy among the lieutenants but he 
is filling the bill as far as volume and mass is concerned. 

His majesty, however, is some slim prince in society. It is not his face but his 
shape that attracts the fairer sex and this being the year of romance where the 
proposal proposition is reversed we are afraid the nifty child will be wafted into the 
wilds of Southern Maryland.

"Sormy a grind? Well, hardly!" 

Junior Year, Sergeant . 

Certainly he's a human being! It 
may not appear so at first glance but if 
the orchestra will softly play, " Ach der 
Lieber Augustine" the reader may see 
for himself that he has human charac- 
teristics. 

"Much may be made of a Dutchman, 
if he be caught young," 'tis said, but as 
we didn't nab him until four years ago 
we cannot prophesy much as to his 
future. Coming as he does from Bla- 
densljurg, he is of a somewhat pugna- 
cious disposition; and, like other over- 
ripe eggs, must be handled with care. 

Although studying electrical engi- 
neering, "Sonny" really expects to be- 
come a pilot, as he has had considerable 
experience in guiding schooners over 
the bar. However we have our sus- 
picions as to the bar, also the schooners. 
This dapper little Frenchman is a 
very enthusiastic member of the A. I. 
E. E., and regularly attends all meet- 
ings, provided the invitation states that, cigars and refreshments ivill be served. 

"Sonny" isn't really a grind, but he laughs at fate and smiles at Myron (which 
is the same thing), with the desired effect at "exam" time. He attends recitations 
at intervals, but has never permitted the curriculum to seriously encroach upon his 
college course. As might be expected he is an optimist, and we might advise that, 
"For that tired feeling go to 'Sonny.' " When the "powers that be" discovered 
that his studies were hurting his cheerful nature they obligingly cut out some of 
his studies. "Sonny" has requested us not to mention that he is not a grind, hence 
our silence on this subject. 

Still, "Dutch" is a pretty good skate^ and we w^ould like to see him get along, so 
we'll ring off.

apples on his back, in 7 flat. 

Theatrical man, yes. "Shush" at- 
tends the National Theater weekly, 
where he has a box seat in A row of the

Head is our college critic on the shows

"Shuse" is not much for athletics in general though h — for boxing.

I heard a mumble and then a sound followed by" I once loved you, Sally," and from 
thence we have known the reasons why, — sad, sad, story. 

Handsome ! Keep quiet, don't mention it. Wliy he has a pair of baby-blue eyes 
set in a two by four block that would dazzle the whole world, and these are erected 
on a form that would make a Parisian model envy him. 

In the summer preceding "Shush's" Sophomore year he took a trip on the briny 
deep as a greaser, and as a greaser he did great credit to himself.

"Ladies and gentlemen! Here we

away with the box he now has to carry 
to climb on when opening his door." 

He, like Mr. Davenport and Profes- 
sor B, believes that parents will show 
better sense if they send their children 
to study animal husbandry; for in this 
way they are made more competent in 
bettering the race of men, by following, and not by disobeying, the rules for cattle 
raising. The Governor of the State, I believe, has heard of this plan, and I am sure 
is making preparations for establishing a husband's department in which Claude 
will be among the foremost directors. Besides this he will also have a department 
for wives, both of which he will advertise far and wide as, "Wives and Husbands 
sent on thirty days'trial. If not satisfactory return in good condition." He says 
he wants a wife-department because he believes in man-suffrage ; that is to say he 
wants the poor down-trodden men to have equal rights with their oppressors. 
We all wish him success in his great expectation, as well as in his less important 
career, animal husbandry.

"Say 'Reds,' do you spell but, b-u-t, 
orb-u-t-e?" Such a query may often be 
heard issuing from the Reveille room, 
as Tar, our long-distance speller, labo- 
riously grinds off a letter to his^frau." 
Old ''Chick-boom" is said to be one of 
the very few who claim to be women- 
proof, but we have our doubts, we have 
our doubts. 

When, or if, he graduates, "Bob" 
intends to enhance the productivity of 
the soil at Silver Springs by means of 
his chemical training, in which he excels. 
However we have a faint suspicion that 
"ward-heeling" is more to his fancy, 
and some day that he'll make a big 
"politish." Indeed he is in his glory 
when politics is the theme at the Senior 
Privates' table, and woe be unto him 
that presumes to take opposition to 
"Bob's" pronounced political views. If 
the reader will focus his looking appa- 
ratus upon the top of this page he will 
need no proof of his electioneering abilities. 
also bears out the fact that he is popular, 
lent mouth-piece to the student body. 

As king of the Senior Class he reigns supreme, and from his wishes in class matters 
there is no appeal. Verily was there never before so tyrannical an emperor, nor 
one who ruled his subjects with such an iron hand. 

Much wailing and gnashing of teeth were evoked among said subjects however, 
when "Bob" made his spectacular corner on 60-cent paper. 

As a social man "Bob" holds a prominent position. He believes with "Bommy" 
that, "man is essentially a social animal," and hence it is that he may so often be

"You see before you, Ladies and 
Gentlemen, a lifelike representation of 
'Dope,' the long distance sleeper. 
However he calls it the unconscious 
state of his overworked system." 

As an automatic schedule "Dope" 
is never failing. To find out if you 
have shop work on for the afternoon 
look into the 0. D.'s office and see if 
"his whiskers" sports the sash. If so, 
"Catfish" will meet you. If "Dope" 
is not there, you are free for the after- 
noon. 

"Good morning, gent'men" is his 
hackneyed greeting as he fills the last 
vacant seat at the Senior Privates' 
table, late as usual, just in time to see 
his milk and cereal taking the grand 
slide. Then Wilson gets real peeved, 
and his orational essays on the person- 
ality of any Boob who would steal a 
fellow's breakfast, would win a half 
dozen Pinkney White Medals. 
One thing that may be said in his favor, however, is his personal neatness. He 
shaves every week whether he needs it or not. Friday afternoon is the day set aside 
for the ceremony, in fact it has almost become a legal holiday with him. First he 
must borrow a razor, then a brush, then some soap and finally a mug. He does this 
systematically however, for he has a "brush, soap, mug and razor" roster that 
includes every member of the class. 

"Dope" is a not-to-be-despised patron of such an infant industry as the Wriglej' 
Spearmint Company, and it is seldom that you will find him without a cud of that 
particular brand of "ladies" tobacco tucked away in the nether extremity of his 
jaw. 

P. S. — We neglected to remark about his nose. It's just as well however, for the 
English language is too inadequate to describe it.

Is he not handsome? Yes he is not. 
If the reader will casually gaze at his 
mug for a moment he may read the 
answer. Yes, "Buck" is handsome, 
so much so that during the present 
year (leap year) he has had innumerable 
offers from the fair ones, but he says 
that girls are too trivial. We notice 
that there is one, however, whom he 
does not consider so. Just ask her 
roommate if the stream of missives she 
receives from College Park does not 
tend to place "Buck" and Ananias 
on the same family-tree. 

It is remarkable how a good start 
will help a fellow along. The girls 
gave him the start and "Commy" is 
kept busy trying to stop him. At- 
tending "reveille" is "Buck's" favor- 
ite pastime; and this more than any- 
thing else has been the chief reason for 
the high esteem in which the "Big 
Chief" now holds him. 

He made another decidedly good start in his Sophomore year by endeavoring to 
become a football hero. More to be depended upon than the mess-bugle was 
"Buck's" daily appearance on the gridiron, where he would do the "human door- 
mat" act for the rest of the team. This badly mussed his hair; so not finding a 
head-shave a good preventive, concluded that he had mistaken his calling and such 
martyrdom was not the glorious vision that he had at first seen. Cheer up, old 
boy, "They all look good when they're far away." 

If he has a speaking acquaintance with a razor we doubt it, for he is usually well 
disguised as the bearded lady; but sometimes he borrows a clime and actually gets 
shaved. Some day he will buy a safety razor and stop "cutting up" but until then 
may he continue his facial landscape gardening undisturbed.

Junior Class Ode 



To the tune of " Stei?i Song" 

Here's to the Class of 1912, 

Here's to black and maroon; 
Here's to those who have done so well, 

Here's to the victory won; 
Here's to our classmates one and all. 

Here's to our future lives; 
Here's to our ideals, our aims, desires. 

And here's to dear M. A. C. 

To the tune of "Heidelberg" 

M. A. C. dear M. A. C, 
Each fond sweet memory; 

The golden haze 
Of College days 

Shall bind us close to thee. 
Those golden days are almost o'er. 

Yet time shall oft renew 
Old memories near 

Our College dear 
And fill our thoughts once more. 

M. A. C, dear M. A. C, 
Thy name shall ever be 

The emblem of 
That sacred love 

Each classmate holds for thee. 
In future years we'll give the yell 

And toast to 1912. 
Long may we stand 

A loyal band 
To dear old M. A. C. 

N. L. Clark, Class Poet. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 49 



Class History 



Beloved Alma Mater, we must bid you now adieu, 

But in your own true spirit we rejoice. 
Dear Comrades — Classmates, I may never clasp your hand again, 

I say these last sad words with breaking voice. 

The years we've spent in these old halls, shall never be forgot, 

And friendship's ])ond shall ever cherished be; 
But now I part from you my friends with sadness and regret. 

From loyal Nineteen-Twelve at M. A. C. 

Now once a bunch of Freshies came down to good old M. A. C. 

To be drilled and drummed and hammered into men, 
To fit them for Life's battlefield, as soldiers ought to be 

And sent out in the busy world again. 

Oh, the "Freshie," he was very meek and he was also scared. 

When the mighty Senior drew into sight; 
For then we thought the Senior l)oys most wondrous kind of men , 

And scarcely hoped to reach that dizzy height. 

There were weeks of weary labor; "there were hours of horrid doul)t." 

A Freshie's life is often hard to bear. 
But ambition led us onward and we bravely stuck it out. 

And oft discouraged never said "despair." 

Oh, yes, it is a victory for all the diligent; 

They make the test as hard as it can be. 
You must not e'en hesitate but show your sterling grit, 

If you would win that golden victory. 

A year went by and we in Soph'more ranks were gladly found, 

We began to feel important then. 
Initiation over and our Comrades by our sides. 

We felt like really "College Men." 



50 THE 1912 REVEILLE 

The Sophomore is happy; he's a cheerful chesty fellow, 

Develops Individuality. 
And feels so great as though he ruled this democratic land, 

When he's a Sophomore at M. A. C. 

The Junior year secured for us a dignity of mein, 

A seriousness of thought which was anew. 
For we began to see that we were drawing near the goal ; 

The time was short for what we had to do. 

Juniors are diligent, they work and grind it through, 

For learning's path grows steeper every mile. 
And must not pause to rest, if he hopes to reach the top, 

He must be up and doing all the while. 

At last we reached that dizzy height which we so long had sought ; 

Wonder! of all wonders can it be? 
Those glorious beings we so long have worshiped from afar. 

At last a mighty Senior Class are "We." 

We're finally one big class ; our banner to the winds, 

But truly all that glitters is not gold. 
Alas! the wondrous height while a Freshman shone so bright, 

Doth many a dark and dreary shadow hold. 

We had to work like beavers that we might achieve success, 

And keep the reputation of the class. 
But every lad among us all was cheered along the way, 

By noble ideals of his own sweet lass. 

The lassies were so sweet and coy and always true to us; 

Their presence filled our hearts with joy and glee. 
For they gaily spurred us onward to our victory, 

The victory won at old M. A. C. 

The year is almost over now; our sheep-skins are assured, 

And glancing back we shed one last sad tear. 
For the time has come to leave these friends we found so true ; 

These old gray walls have grown to us so dear. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



51 



Ah, yes, these years have passed us l)y so very rapidly. 

Our college days are over all too soon; 
Yet we would linger here with these bright scenes to us so dear. 

If kindly fate would grant us such a boon. 

But Hush ! the bugle calls us now with sad and vain regrets, 

And we must sally forth to meet the foe. 
We've climbed the hill of Knowledge now; we pause upon the top 

Before we go down to the field below. 

Now we go forth to spend our lives among the "Great Unknown, 

To ride abroad redressing human wrong; 
For every one of us will boldly stand up for the right. 

As these four years have made us l)old and strong.

56 THE 1912 REVEILLE 

Junior Class History 

At last I was to realize the hope I had cherished so long. I was to fly. Hastily 
I donned an aviator's garb and took the seat beside my new found friend. 

Up, up, up we rose in an immense spiral until far in the distance we descried 
College Hill surmounted and pinnacled by the walls of M. A. C. Thither, through 
the middle-ways, we then directed our rapid flight. As we approached our destina- 
tion, however, atmospheric conditions began to change. The hot air arising from 
the chimneys (?) set up conflicting air currents and the cloud of foul gases that rose 
from the Chemical "Lab" caused complications in the carburetter. We had nearly 
landed when suddenly the motor stopped and the latter part of our descent was 
rather abrupt, involving some danger to our craft. 

"Come," said I, "and we'll get some of the expert machinists of the Class of '13 
to fix it." 

"No this isn't a zoo. It's the machine shop. That noise wasn't made by a 
canary." It was "Pink' Healy singing. The tall animal over there in the polka- 
dot shirt, greasy khaki trousers and crownless derby hat is not a giraffe. That is 
'Bob' White, our high-handed grafter and step ladder eradicator. He has the legs 
of a stork and the wise head of an owl, but nevertheless is a ])ob-white. 

"Pink" is our electrician and one of "Commy's" pets. When not singing, talk- 
ing about New York or kidding some one he is busily engaged in perusing the latest 
news from "The Alley." 

The dark-haired fellow is "Piggy" Hatton, student of physical culture and chief 
washer-maker. He says less, giggles more and reads more books than any other 
member of the class." 

Upon being informed by the mechanics that it would require some time to prepare 
our machine, we decided to see more of the interesting sights and accordingly wended 
our way upstairs to "Doc" Tolly's lecture-room. 

"Good morning, boys. Good morning, boys. Pardon me for being late this 
morning. I had to stop in the office and get my stump." This is what greets our 
ears as we enter. 

"Have one of my cigars, Professor," this from "Perce" Trax, he with the sar- 
castic grin. "Perce" is our business-man and great logician, especially when he 
gets into an argument with "Commy" about "sticks." He always carries the 
College Regulations in his pocket and marches the section in a very military (?) 
manner. 

"Now Mr. Davis, I'll begin with you." That is "Peck" with the wisdom of 
Solomon, the shrewdness of a Yankee Jew, and the ready information of a reference 
book. He can sling railways, spiel Calculus Formulae and drop concrete to "Doc's" 
complete satisfaction. In the meantime he slings a little ink at Roland Avenue, 
much to the gratification of — . 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 57 

"What I don't see is this. How do you get that?" 

Listen! Cadet Trimhal is speaking. "Socks," the chief kiclder condition- 
accumulator, explanation-writer, recHning-rodman and consulting engineer of the 
class on "Izzy." 

"Shut up, Blankman. I never did like you." 

"Hurrah for Trimble." 

That last remark was by "Isador" Blankman in reply to "Sock's" sarcasm. Yes, 
he is a Hebrew and some shrewd fellow. "Doc" claims him as one of "his boys." 
He is frequently the storm center of chalky-tornadoes w4iich disturb the hitherto 
peaceful calm of the drawing-room. Lately he has l^ecome very artistic. House- 
painting seems to be his specialty. 

Yes; that is his brother. He entered our ranks just this year and immediatel.y 
was christened "Aint-a-dore" Blankman. He has since established himself as the 
Calculus-fiend, German reference book, philosopher and adviser of the class. The 
lost stations seem to be an important factor in "Ainty's" mind. 

"Professor, I'm on duty today." 

Eddy Powell, ears inflamed and neck swathed in bandages has arrived at last. 
That promotion of his nearly proved fatal. Eddy is very religious. He sings much 
and designs churches. At present he is busy tackling one such design, Init we 
greatly fear that he will convert it into a nickelodeon before he finishes. 

Those two cadets punching each other with lead pencils are Hull and Merrick. 
"Bill" is "Sock's" chief adviser and pardner, while "Zeke" is one of "Doc's" favor- 
ites. The little blind god seems to have him well under control. 

Now we'll go over to the "Chem Lab" and see what is making all this unpleasant 
odor. 

Yes, here they are. 

That chubby Scotchman who is giving one of the Seniors a warm shower from 
his wash-bottle is "Nebby," one of this year's accessions. He has proved himself 
quite valuable in keeping the "Lab" clear of Seniors. Nesbit is making rapid 
progress and has already discovered a method of analysis by means of which he 
has discovered 113 per cent iron in iron wire. 

The red-haired angel-faced little fellow who just came out of the office is May- 
field. Yes, "Angel" is another of our ambitious chemists. See how critically he 
eyes the bottle of nasty looking stuff he has there. He'll tell you in a few minutes 
exactly what is in it. Now watch him get busy with a pump and a filter. 

"First down and ten yards to go. Whoa, Steady Now!" 

Don't be frightened, that is only Bryon Morse precipitating the metals of Group I. 
Look out! he's going to pour some more acid in that seething solution he has there. 
There goes the bottom out of his test tube It's a toss between him and Nitz as to 
which one can break the most apparatus. Byron has us all at his mercy when it 
comes to giving spiels on the homologous series. "An homologous series is one in 
which all the members are homologous." A heart smasher? You bet he is. 



58 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



"Nitz?" That is Mr. Greenboig, the pmk-whiskered, blue-blooded gentleman 
from New York and one of us animal husbandry students. When not talking about 
some of the millionaires of New York, Greenberg is usually smashing glass or apply- 
ing acids to his face in a vain effort to get rid of his red whiskers, the growth of which 
is a great annoyance to the "Big Chief." See that letter in his pocket? Yes, one 
of the sweet-scented kind. 

Oh, you need not wory about " Chevy" Towers. He'll wake up after he has taken 
his little nap and cut that Ca determination short by throwing all of the AI2O3 and 
Si02 in the sink. He doesn't say much but what he doesn't know about chickens 
would fill a small book. 

Some pedestrian received a ducking ! I just saw "Pop" Koehler go to the window 
with 500 cc. of water. Pop is one of our athletes. See, he has an "M" and two 
stars on his sweater. Notice the letter he has in his book. Oh, you Chambersburg! 

The little Dutchman on his left is Bierman, commonly called "Dutch." He is 
noted for being the best-natured man in the class. Notice his broad grin. Now he 
is going to treat "Pete" Ames to a little distilled HoO. 

Yes; Peter is our Color(ed) Sergeant. Doesn't he have a military bearing? 
Reminds you of Napoleon, he's so different. He pretends to be looking at the pre- 
cipitate he has in that test-tube which he is holding up to the light Imt it is only an 
excuse to catch a glimpse at the little house down by the wood. 

You bet he's a wind splitter on chemistry notes. Takes them down at the rate 
of about 200 (letters) per by occasionally asking about what has gone before. 

Who on earth is stirring up all of that fog? It's "Bob" Robinson to be sure. 
Whenever atmospheric conditions become intolerable he is generally to blame. 
Poor "Bob" gets the raw end of the deal when "Doc Mack" makes his tour of 
inspection, but it doesn't interfere with his happiness in the least. Listen at 
that original parody of his on "Day Dreams." 

Here comes "Doc Mack" with a hammer and a handful of nails. That means 
all the windows will be nailed down. It smells foul enough in here now. I suppose 
we had better leave. 

Upon leaving the Chemical Building whom should we spy but "Bill" White 
just coming out of Science Hall. 

"Hello, 'Bill;' how did you get along with you bugology lesson?" "Pretty 
good. You know fellows if you had something like this to study you could talk 
about work." This is his answer as he pulls a large text-book from under his arm. 
He has always had much trouble in filling his social engagements and studying at the 
same time. When he graduates he will have completed the widest course in Bug- 
ology and "Work-Evasion" in the college. 

The bunch following "Becky" is going down to the greenhouse to pack fruit in 
boxes (?). We'll follow them. 

The happy-go-lucky fellow packing those apples away so snugly in the box is 
"Phoebo" Binder. His good looking friend is Augustus. Both are athletes and 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 59 

have made enviable records. Gus is much concerned about Georgetown at the 
present time. We'll see more of them later. 

The dark-haired chap is "Happy" Barnes. He keeps us posted on all matters 
pertaining to the Experiment Station. Now the tall intellectual gentleman is 
Brinn of Washington, D. C., diplomat and representative from Panama. He is 
never more delighted than when engaged in photographing the ladies. He is with- 
out a doubt the best social man of the section with the single exception of Orlando 
Rideout. 

Orlando is the social man of the class and never fails to be on hand with his fair 
queen at every Rossburg. His social affairs, however, do not in the least interfere 
with his close application to scholastic work. 

"Grand Father" standing yonder by the bunch is Sergeant Smedley of "C" 
Company. He is an official milk-tester and a great favorite of "Grasshopper." 
He and "Tolly" often spend the greater part of a period discussing the topography 
of Hartford County much to the pleasure of the remainder of the class. The little 
affair he has in his hand isn't a chess board, it's one of his new lightning feed- 
calculators. 

Of course you will find Hillegeist, more widely known as "Hilly," somewhere 
near by. He holds and draws salaries from the following positions: big chief of 
mess hall, dancing hall musician, pianist at chapel exercises, milk tester, all around 
alarm clock on Buzzard's Roost, Professor Hibbard's accountant and champion 
theme writer. 

Oh, that's Scammell, often dubbed Scammilicus, who is plying "Becky" with 
questions. He is now greatly wrought up over a nut-growing proposition. 

Don't form a bad opinion of "Bill" Frere and "Tommy" Williams for putting 
those apples under their shirts. Yes, I see they have about a peck already but that 
makes no difference. Those apples are for experimental purposes. "Bill" will 
soon discover which variety aids him most in beating the "list "and accordingly 
recommend it to all fellow sufferers. 

"Our aeroplane is ready now. We'll have to go." A moment later we were aloft 
again; this time above the athletic field. 

"It must be a critical stage in the game for I hear "Bob" Robinson yelling as if 
he would split his throat. 

"Look at 'Pop' Keohler going through the line. There goes 'Phoebo' down the 
field with the ball like a streak of lightning. Wasn't that a grand tackle by 'Gus?' " 

"Sure they— " 

Right here something went wrong. In my enthusiasm over the game I forgot 
all else and lost control of the machine which now began to capsize. Instinctively 
I grasped an upright post near me and held on with all my might. Oh! what a 
sensation of horror took hold of me ! Suddenly everything vanished and I awoke 
to find myself desperately clinging to the bedpost. 

J. S. Reichard, Historian. 



60 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Junior Class Ode 

Tune "Love Thoughts." 

While the breezes, gently blowing, waft their message to each heart, 
Of the days so swiftly going, and from school — friends we must part, — 
This, the Class of Nineteen-Thirteen, trusts that it shall always be, 
In our lives, each year succeeding, ever true to M. A. C. 

We love thy precepts, dear old M. A. College, 

Mem'ries w^e'll cherish, of happy hours here. 
Soon we'll be leaving, with minds stored with knowledge. 

That we have garnered 'mid thy walls so dear — 

One more step e'er our brave banner of maroon and white shall float, 
Firm and bold, in royal manner; then in lands perhaps remote, 
May we climb the ladder bravely, nothing daunted day by day, 
Ever glad to praise and yield all honor to old M. A. C.

66 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Sophomore Class History 

''Help! Help! Please don't hit me so hard." 

"For the love of Mike, Hoff, be reasonable. He's only a poor rat what don't 
have no s^nse." 

"Aw, say, you keep your bugle out of this; what do you think it is, a pink tea?" 

Gentle reader, please do not be unduly shocked at the alcove. There's nothing 
wrong in it, just a little rat meeting in No. 4, New Barracks, and you accidentally 
arrived in the midst of it. If you will stay awhile you may see and hear a few things 
that will prove to be entertaining. 

Following three quick raps, the door is slowly opened and you behold a blind- 
folded and very much excited chap being jostled from the rear by two sturdy slal) 
artists. Evidently he is a great friend of the Sophs, for he has been graciously 
reserved to be the last victim. 

Worch — "Easy fellows, he looks delicate." 

Cosier— "Let's kill him." 

Victim — "I never done nuthin'." 

Quickly the lights are turned out, and although we are completely in ignorance of 
what is the form of this special brand of amusement, j^et from the pleas and threats 
we conclude that the gentleman under consideration^ is having a rare time. Almost 
as quickly the lights flare up and all is order again. 

Having become so much interested in the proceedings, we will stay for the business 
end of this meeting. The Sophs always go by their motto — "Pleasure before busi- 
ness." 

You and I will get into a corner of the room where we can take it all in without 
being seen. 

President Worch — "All right, fellows, come to order." (This is followed by ten 
minutes of general rough-house.) 

Worch — "Order! Come on, fellows! Order!! Order!!! (It almost gets quiet.) 

Worch — "Fellows, I've called this meeting tonight to discuss the new summer 
uniform. You know that last year's uniform was punk. We want olive-drab this 
year. Have any of you men anything to sa}^ about this matter?" (General con- 
fusion again. Everybody yelling, "Mr. President.") 

^ And other things. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 67 

President — "Order! Mr. West has the floor. All right, West, old man." 

West— ''My. President, I move—" 

Coster — "Well, why don't you move! Ls anybody stoppin' you?" 

West — -"I move that we don't get khaki uniforms, because you can't wash them. 
You know we want olive-drab riding-breeches." 

Gray, R. — "We don't want riding pants." 

Deelef—"! do." 

Coster — ^"What are you going to ride — a fence rail?" 

President — ^" Order ! You have heard the motion; is there any second?" 

Green^ — ^"Mr. President, I move we get a full olive-drab uniform." 

Griffin — "I move we get new dress coats." 

Ford — "I move somebody gives me a smoke." 

President — "Say, have you fellows finished moving? If you have we'll start to 
second a few of the motions on the floor." 

i^orrf— "Well, I'll swan." 

Green — "Oh, Raspy, you ought to have been along on that two thousand dollar 
trip to Seattle a couple years ago. Believe me, Caroline, it was some rich." 

Rasmussen'^ — "Oh, go to ! You never saw the Eastern Shore, much less Seattle." 

Jeff — ^"Mr. President, I move we adjourn." 

President — "You've heard Mr. Jeff's motion. Is there any second?" 

Several — ^" Let's go!" 

President — "The meeting is adjourned." 

From the two foregoing little incidents you can form a general idea how we spent 
our Sophomore year at this institution. You will note that in our actions we were 
not so dignified and serious as a church congregation would be; but we enjoyed our- 
selves as only Sophomores could, and hereafter we will always look back on this 
year as one of the most pleasant in all our lives. 

^ He is a goodly infant.

72 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



History of the Class of 1915 

Freshmen = those in the rudiments of knowledge 

In September of 1911 about fifty "ambitious," "intelligent," and "determined" 
fellows landed at M. A. C. from practically all parts of the globe and entered the 
Freshman Class, either upon presentation of a certificate from some reputable 
school, or by bluff. Of this number, about twenty were "old-boys" of the Sub- 
Freshman Class of 1910, and the remaining thirty were "rats." It is needless to 
state that the "old-boys" were much gratified to have so many new fellows enter the 
class. 

The Freshman Class at present has an enrollment of forty-three regular students — 
the largest class inthe college, and will undoubtedly compare very favorably in num- 
ber and in every possible manner to any Freshman Class in the state of Maryland. 

Our Freshman officers were elected the latter part of our Sub-Freshman year. A 
class-meeting was called soon after we got established at M. A. C. What was the 
result? We were all jammed in one small room, the thermometer was registering 
about 100 degrees and the famous Piedmont was much in evidence. Regardless of 
the above-named abnormal conditions we transacted our business in a very desirable 
manner. Our "rats" no doubt thought that this meeting was called in order that 
the "old-boys" might show them a few stunts with the "broomstick and "bayo- 
net," but such was not the case on this occasion. Soon " 15" in the colors of blue and 
gold was being worn by every member of the class. 

From the beginning of the year to Thanksgiving the Freshman Class held its own. 
The " Sophs" were on very good terms with our class from the start — our class being 
somewhat the larger, we naturally anticipated peace. 

The Thanksgiving holidays came and passed so quickly that we remember only 
two things about it — we departed from college on Wednesday — ^we returned to 
college on Sunday. Of course, there were a few that were "unfortunate," having 
been taken ill suddenly and could not return on time. Also, those who wandered 
to the Eastern "Sho" and Southern Maryland straggled in any time between a 
week and ten days; depending upon their "pull" with "Commy" and the number of 
boats that traverse the waters between their place of departure and Baltimore or 
Washington. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 73 

The period between our Thanksgiving holidays and Christmas was short and 
quiet. Home-sickness, romantic thoughts, and all other things that follow a holi- 
day did not tarry long in the hearts of our fellows. We realized that the first term 
exams were fast approaching, and we all needed a /?"<^/e "brushing up"on our subjects. 
Some members of the class, by sitting up late, and getting up early, passed their 
exams creditably — others retired early, arose late, and "flunked" terribly. Such 
was the result of our first term examinations. 

From the beginning of our Christmas holidays till the opening of college on Janu- 
ary 2d, we know but little about our fellows, individually or collectively. If time 
and space permitted, however, no doubt some interesting facts could be cited by 
an examination of our first theme in January, entitled "My Christmas Holidays." 
Incidentally we might say that our themes are always filled with "human interest" 
and are usually the recipients of "comment" and other things when made public. 

Thus far the Freshman Class has manifested much interest in making every 
branch of M. A. C.'s athletics a success. On the gridiron, track, and other fall and 
winter sports, our class has been represented. And now, that the baseball and 
lacrosse season is approaching, we hope, and believe that our class will be repre- 
sented in these manly sports. 

Members of this class are pursuing various courses of study. The identification 
of the smallest "unknown" protoplasmic substance; the maintenance of a large 
stock farm on the Isthmus of Panama; the manner of perfecting and propagating 
the most minute of our plants ; the ability to recognize and give name to any seed 
produced in our Union; to be able to cause two chemicals to combine, when the 
same is impossible; to be able to survey the boundaries of our Great Pacific and 
compute its capacity; to plan, or design a locomotive that can run from Washington 
to Baltimore (40 miles) in twenty-five minutes and not exceed a mile per minute ; 
and to be able to construct a dynamo that will electrocute a person, by simply look- 
ing at it — these are a few of the "ordinary" ideals of the member of the Class of 
1915. 

We are all looking forward with great pleasure to that privileged class — THE 
SOPHOMORE, when our long anticipated plans may be converted into realization. 

Let each one strive with all his might to do his duty, and the success achieved will 
ultimately redound to the honor and glory of the Class of 1915.

Good-by, Old Arm!'' 



The knife was still — the surgeon bore 

The shattered arm away; 
Upon his bed, in painless sleep, 

The noble hero lay. 
He woke, but saw the vacant place 

Where limb of his had lain. 
Then faintly spoke: "O let me see 

My strong right arm again ! 

"Good-by, old arm!" the soldier said. 

As he clasped the fingers cold ; 
And down his pale but manly cheeks 

The tear-drops gently rolled; 
"My strong right arm, no deed of yours 

Now gives me cause to sigh; 
But it's hard to part such trusty friends- 

Good-by, old arm! good-by" 

"You've served me well these many j'ears, 

In sunlight and in shade; 
But, comrade, we have done with war — 

Let dreams of glory fade. 
You'll never more my saber swing 

In battle fierce and hot; 
You'll never bear another flag, 

Or fire another shot. 

"I do not mourn to lose you now. 

For home and native land; 
Oh ! proud am I to give my mite 

For freedom pure and grand! 
Thank God! no selfish thought is mine, 

While here I bleeding lie. 
Bear, bear it tenderly away — 

Good-by, old arm! good-by." 



80 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Hymn of Battle 



No more the life inert, no more the things to be! 
Today with all its fight and flame, its battle clang, for me! 
Today, with all its freshening flood of triumph and of trust 
Above the buried yesterdays of doubting and of dust. 

Today, today — the battle calls, 

And through the dark to light; 
For all is one long struggle, dear, 

To try to live life right! 

No more the listless apathy, no more the choice to wait! 
Today the bugles on the hills, the war steeds at the gate ! 
Today the levelled lance, and men, and red blood in the veins, 
And one wild burst along the hills, and give the steed the reins. 

Today, today! Not yesteryear! 

Not shadows and not dread; 
But life along the gleaming line. 

And one more fight ahead. 

No more the reticence to lead, no more the holding back! 
Today the marching of the throng along the roaring track! 
The thunder of a thousand storms, the lightning and the rain, 
And one strife more and one strong heart and no lips to complain 

Today, today! The cry is forth! 

The wind is on the sea. 
And where the clang of battle leads. 

Thank God life leadeth me! 

No more the stale and profitless, no more the rest and dream! 
No more the routine and the rut, but now the freshening gleam ! 
The lance in my own hand to lead, the venture mine to know, 
The sword above my head, the string drawn taut upon the bow. 

Today, today! The battle now. 

The peace beyond the night — 
When we have won the struggle, dear. 

For life, for love, for right. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 81 



The Military Department 

The United States government has found it very desirable to maintain depart- 
ments of military training in all the educational institutions, towards whose support 
it contributes financially^ each year. Accordingly it has made this a part of the 
requirements to be al)le to enjoy such contributions. 

Our military policy must of necessity be a very weak one in comparison with 
other great nations of the world. This is largely due to a spirit of commercialism 
that has sprung up during the prosperous time which we have been enjoying; and 
also to the fact that the United States is not a military nation now, and never has 
been one. It has been our policy to maintain a very small standing army, and to 
rely upon citizen soldiery in times of war. Hence the more military training that 
can be given our citizens in time of peace, the better shall we, as a nation, be pre- 
pared when war does come upon us; and the less time it will take to drill and ecjuip 
bodies of troops fit to take the field in active campaign against a highly trained foe. 

The War Department recognizes the value of the training given to the graduates 
of these institutions, and is now engaged in formulating a plan, whereby graduates 
may be induced to enter the National Guard. It has called upon all officers detailed 
as military instructors, for written recommendations, as to ways which would help 
to induce such graduates to give their service to the National Guard. Each year the 
names of graduates who have shown ability and interest are forwarded to the War 
Department. In addition to this, the cadet standing the highest in the military 
department of a distinguished institution is each year given a chance to compete 
for a commission in the United States Army. 




LIFE, BY HECK, AT OLD STUMP NECK 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 83 



Trip to Stump Neck 

A cool refreshing breeze was stirring, which was just strong enough to sway the 
grass and early flowers to and fro, like Chief Engineer Grace's cat-boat when left 
to the mercy of the wind and waves of the fierce and vicious Chesapeake; and the 
odors arising from the honey locust, augmented by the sweet perfume of the wild 
honeysuckle, were by no means nauseating to one who was familiar with the brand 
of Toilet Powder for sale at Captain Posey's old stand, (Colgate's "Dactylis." 
(Take a deep breath, and pause for five minutes.) 

Slowly, one by one, "Commy" M. A. C'aesar, and all the little Caesars, assembled 
on the parade ground with their rifles, bandeliers and blanket roll; to be subjected 
to an informal inspection for small necessary articles, such as a manicuring set, 
shoe-horn, tooth-brush, etcetera. A few minutes later a long column of Infantry 
could be seen gradually but diligently working its way towards the car-station; 
where special cars were waiting to deliver us C. 0. D. at the Navy Yards in Wash- 
ington. From here one of Uncle Sam's tugs was used to convey us down the river. 
Gradually we vanished from Washington, but Alexandria was ready with out- 
stretched arms to receive us into her bosom of still water. Likewise were the other 
points of importance along the Potomac. 

We were duly received by the marines at Stump Neck with a salute; which con- 
sisted of three volleys from their Catling guns fired over the mast of the tug. 
Whether it was meant as courtesy or not is an unanswered question. However we 
found our camping ground in excellent condition, with the tents already pitched. 

Immediately after arriving the bugler sounded that old melodious tune, and gee! 
how glad we were to have our keen appetites satisfied with an al)undant supply of 
palatable and delicious food (?). 

The night was spent in a state of dread uneasiness, for a small bandit was prowl- 
ing around camp. The marine officer threatened to have all the outlaws shot at 
day-break, and "Sox" Trimble was sentenced to be burnt at the stake. 

Three yards of canvas and six feet of bamboo constituted our beds, and a mass of 
sore-heads was precipitated the following morning. 

Firing from the 200, 300 and 500 yard-lines was the schedule for the following 
five days. Bathing in the deeps of the Potomac was greatly enjoyed in the eve- 
nings; when not strolling around over Charles County to get aglimpseof thesponsor 
for the future battalion.

MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 85 



June Encamvment 



"Say ' Febe/ what are those white things up there on the hill? I never saw any- 
thing like that before in Prince George County." 

"Oh, you poor Mutt! That's what they call Camp Silvester." 

Camp Silvester was named in honor of the "Big Chief," and everybody was 
welcomed into the Comanche's Camp — provided they came after breakfast, brought 
'long their lunch, and left before supper time. We were taught these courtesies 
long before our dreams of camping were materialized. 

Pitching tents was the first exertion for the privates, after arriving at the proposed 
camping grounds. Scarcely had we become settled and acquainted with our cozy 
tents, when we were called "to arms" to display our ability at evening dress parade, 
before an interesting audience of co-eds in the bleachers. The same pleasures 
were granted each evening for the benefit of our honored guests. 

Finally the morning for the competitive company drill arrived, and of course each 
company was sure to win. Company ''C" was victorious; but "B" was close 
behind. Some high-ranking private thoughtlessly shot a "snipe" into the middle 
of the street, for which a few points were deducted. 

Monday night the camp-fires were kept burning low, as a token of love for our 
dear old camping grounds, from which we would soon take our sad departure. 

At last Tuesday came, and we concluded that life on "The Knob" was too strenu- 
ous, and we would love to be back in the barracks. So before night-fall "Commy" 
issued General Order No. 23 — and we promptly responded.

The Old Boy's Dream 



Last night I dreamed a happy dream, 

Most wonderful to me; 
It was a military dream 

About old M. A. C. 



I heard the bugles blow the calls 

The old boy loves to hear; 
I heard the sacred white-washed walls 

Re-echo, cheer on cheer. 

I saw the companies stretching out 

In regimental line; 
I heard the sergeant major shout 

In accents soft and fine. 

I watched the band march to and fro, 
And heard distinct and clear 

The self-same airs that long ago 
Our fathers used to hear. 

But best of all, / did not stand 

Among the boys in gray, 
No rifle butt was in my hand, 

I did not drill that daj'. 

A khaki uniform I wore 

And held my head up high 

/ gave the orders to them, for 
The commandant was I. 



He wore a suit of army gray 

As I could plainly see, 
And drilled a rear rank private, too, 

In my own company. 

I watched him closely as he stood. 

To see what I could see; 
He turned his head (I hoped he would) 

A half of one degree. 

Then down the line I quickly tore, 

A frown upon my brow; 
Poor Commy looked a trifle sore — 

I clearly see him now. 

I grabbed him firmly by the chin 

And looked him in the eye. 
Said I, "I'll teach you discipline 

Or know the reason why." 

"Straight to the front your face must be 

Straight to the front I say; 
No more such movement let me see 

Another time this day." 



Yes, I was commandant and told 
AH old boys what to do 

While Commy had a gun to hold 
And wore a bayonet, too. 



I marched back to my post again 
All smiling at my joke. 

I turned to give command, and then- 
Alas, I then awoke.

Literary Societies 



Immediately upon their return to the College in January, the literar}^ and the 
oratorically inclined men reorganized the Morrill and New Mercer Literary Socie- 
ties, and put them on a plane with the other student organizations. 

To say that they have achieved success is but mildly to express the way in which 
they carried out the work they had planned. At the weekly meetings each society 
has given its men the opportunity and encouragement necessary to a successful 
orator, debater, and elocutionist; so that the result has been the spirited and instruc- 
tive entertainment coincident with such gatherings. Many and broad subjects 
have been the themes of our aspirant debaters. The orators have thrilled us with 
their startling and vastly deep declamations, while the entertainment afforded us 
by the elocutionists has been a most pleasant release from the dullness of winter 
life. 

Ever since their infancy these two societies, though fostered by the students 
collectively, each year await the chance to match their wits; so when the annual 
debate between the Morrill and New Mercer is called, as the finale to the scholastic 
year, we will again hear the masterful pleadings of their best representatives. 



112 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



The Dance 



(A la Bacon as a j^oung man; if he ever was one.) 

The dance is a delight to the young to partake of, to the old to behold, and to 
those between to gossip over. It promoteth sociabilities and restoreth the balance 
of overworked minds. Of all sensations it is the most infectious, that your arm be 
around a lady in the maze of the dance; especially if she be youthful, and of a lis- 
somness. 

There be two considerations : what should be sought after in choosing the partner; 
and what should be guarded against, the choice having been made. 

The ecstasy of the dance is motion, therefore let the lady be accomplished. 
Choose not the halt nor the lame, and above all beware the novice. The lady should 
not be of greater height than the man, neither doth one of plump bosom consort 
to advantage with a man of small chest. 

The couple being matched, there be certain wise precautions. Too much con- 
verse spoileth the rythmn; therefore if the lady be one of many words, let the dance 
be fast that she have little breath: or if again it be discovered too late that she 
keepeth not to the music then badinage is the only physic to relieve the situation; 
which may be aided by visiting the punch bowl, and that with a frequency. 

If she hath the sinuous waist, the modest bodice, the throat of velvet smoothness, 
confiding eyes, and a wicked mouth, and a fragrance emanating from the hair, and 
withal moveth her limbs in perfect accord with the music and her partner as well, 
then is the dance at its perfection, verily an Elysian tonic to the soul. 

These latter allurements be the ta meteora of Aristophanes — the things transcen- 
dental that appeal to all, but are to be obtained by the connoisseur alone. 

Be not bold; but be not faint of heart either. A lady, be she not insipid, favoreth 
whoso exhibiteth assurance tempered with discretion.

The Dream 



Perchance it was only a fancy, 

Perhaps it was only a dream; 
Yet the breeze bore the noise through my window, 

As light as a golden sunbeam. 

I was dreaming of her when it woke me. 

Of her eyes of the deepest brown; 
Her teeth and her smile that entranced me, 

Her skin white and soft as the down. 
I had dreamed of the myriad dances 

I had spent with the vision fair; 
Of her grace, of her lightness in gliding, 

Of her voice and her rippling hair. 

How at last we had tired of dancing. 

And had sought a safe nook, where I told 
How I loved her and worshiped her always. 

Her ways and her heart of pure gold. 
Then I turned on my fevered pillow, 

And closed my eyes as in pain ; 
To banish the sights around me, 

And float to her once again. 

But alas the Fates were against me, 

The gun was the noise I had heard. 
Announcing the dawn as its herald. 

As swift as the wings of a bird. 
Then the Reveille Squad was upon me, 

My dreams of my love were no more. 
When Burrier, Grace and Warfield 

Deposited me on the floor. 

So I dreamed no more of my maiden, 

For the Reveille Squad I abhor; 
And now I must get up at first call 

Or be sure to be dumped on the floor.

W. M. McBride President

E. V. Benson Secretary and Treasurer 

The letters Y. M. C. A. stand for perhaps more than many of us think. Youth 
manhood, Christianity and associations are all things very near and dear to us. 
They are subjects of which we never tire and upon which we love to ponder. The 
Association in this institution has endeavored to bring its members to a fuller appreci- 
ation of the vigor, the vim and the enthusiasm of youth ; the integrity of sterling 
manhood, and the pleasures, advantages and protections afforded by Christian 
associations and fellowships. It has aimed to inculcate the principles of right living, 
and to set up higher and loftier ideals among the students. The development of 
body, mind and soul have been its concern, but highest and most important, the 
soul. 

Our associations has ever striven for the betterment of the moral and spiritual 
welfare, not only of its members, but of every cadet who enters the walls of M. A. C. 
We have taken upon ourselves the task of creating, here amidst the rush and hurry 
of college life, something which will approximate that home environment and atmos- 
phere which nearly every young man misses and yearns for when he leaves home 
and comes to college. By a systematic and regular reading of the Bible, by study, 
and reflection upon such lives as those of Christ and St. Paul, we have endeavored 
to keep vivid in our minds those precepts learned at our mother's knee. 

To this end about eighty-seven cadets have entered classes this year and have been 
doing splendid work which cannot help but bear fruit in later years. Not satisfied 
with a study of the Bible, they have become awakened to the great problem of mis- 
sion work, and as a result we have a class studying, "The unoccupied fields of Africa 
and Asia." This is the first year that a mission study class has been conducted 
and is a step forward which is very gratifying. 

The delegates who went to Western Maryland College to the Joint Convention 
of the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. of the State, came back with many new ideas 
on mission work and will doubtless put them in practice.

The Triangle 



This institution of our College was started in the fall of 1909. At first there was 
some doubt as to the success of the paper, but all fears however speedily vanished 
after the first two or three issues had been run off. 

Several radical changes have been made since the first publication; it it first 
being issued monthly and then increased to a bi-monthly journal, because of the 
demand for the news matter i^ contained. 

Originally the Triangle had been under the direct management of the Senior 
Class. This however brought forth trouble between the Triangle and the Reveille, 
so a change of policy was instituted this year. It was turned over to the Junior 
Class, the Editor-in-chief alone to be a member of the Senior Class. 

Editor McBride has contributed largely to the success of the paper, and his 
editorials have done much to make the paper what it is. The work of the Asso- 
ciate Editors has also been commendable in every respect. 

Under this year's management the financial success of the Triangle has passed 
our most sanguine expectations. The list of subscribers has increased far beyond 
that of the preceding years. 

Thus the Triangle has closed the third year, the real test year, of its life. May 
the success won by such hard efforts this year be continued in future years.

''Ship'' Shipley 

There are few who can show 
this youngster anything about 
athletics. He seems to be at 
home in every sport. Ship is a 
born leader. In the college year 
'10-' 11 he had the distinction of 
being captain of three athletic 
teams — football, basketball and 
baseball. While excellent in 




all, he shines especially in foot- 
ball, being designated, "AU- 
Alaryland" quarterback in 1910. 
Exceedingly aggressive and 
absolutely fearless. Ship is one 
of the most respected men in 
this section on the gridiron. 
He is a natural general, and 
has the art of out-guessing the 
other fellow down to an almost 
uncanny degree. 



''Biir' Kemp 



Bill is certainly worthy of the "All-Maryland" half-back 
title, for during his three years in the mole-skins has always 
played a rattling fine game. During the Soph Year and as 
Captain in the Junior Year, Kemp was placed at end and some- 
times at tackle; but during the latter part of this season was 
shifted to half-back. It was there that Bill has done his best 
work. In the Western Maryland game this fall his line-plung- 
ing was exceptionally noteworthy, being greatly instrumental 
in our laying their colors low. Against Gallaudet when each 
team was fighting for inches, he tore off several plunges for 
ysrds at a time. 



120 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



121 



"Hoff' Hoffecker 

In Hoffecker, M. A. C.'s football team will have a gallant 
leader for 1912. Playing the left-half back position, "Hoff" 
has caused many a team's colors to be lowered in the dust and 
many lines have crumbled away before his vicious attacks. 

The long run made by him against the "Mutes," thereby 
winning the most hard fought battle on M. A. C.'s gridiron, 
is a feat that every M. A. C. student will long remember; and 
from the "antics" made by the "Dummies," he will always 
be a man dreaded by them. 

We wish "Hoff" and his fellow warriors every success, and 
may they be victorious in the season of 1912. 



''Keg'' Miidd 

Mudd — a voluminous stratum of the 
adhesive type — has for the past three 
years proved to be an impenetrable bar- 
rier to M. A. C.'s gridiron opponents. 

Time and time again when Western 
Maryland, Hopkins and St. John's found 
each attempt to advance of no avail, it 
was due to their inability to wade 
through this quagmire. 

Whatever may have been the under- 
lying principle of Keg's success its cause 
was second only to the effect in the eyes 
of his team-mates. We fear that some 
time will elapse before Maryland will be 
able to replace the sturdy right tackle 
now leaving us. 



''Gee Bee'' Posey 

We insist that Posey is the best tackle that M. A. C. has ever 
produced, and that he has no superior in Maryland College 
circles today. True, he was not given that honor by the news- 
papers, for he possessed not the "pull that counts," nor did 
his true gentlemanly modesty permit him to cultivate it. 

Weighing 180 pounds, powerfully built, abundantly blessed 
with football acumen and enthusiasm, this nervy player has 
performed feats during his four years on the eleven that have 
proved his team's salvation on more than one critical occasion. 
It will be years before M. A. C. will be able to boast of his equal. 





122 



THE 19 12 REVEILLE 




''Duke'' Duckett 

Duckett, although he hails from Bladensburg, has been one 
of the shining stars during his four years at M. A. C. 

Having obtained a great distinction and a wide reputation 
on the track, "Duke" cast his lot in football. He soon found a 
place in the back field, and the way he skirted the ends were 
sights worth witnessing. The opposing ends could never get 
near enough to make a tackle, but always had to be content 
with the dust from this fleet-footed star. 

Ordinarily "Duke" has a slow sleepy movement, but when 
it comes to the track and gridiron, his name will go down in 
'SI. A. C. annals as one of the fastest men ever produced here. 



''Phebo'' Binder 

Binder, an unknown quantity at first, soon showed that he 
had seen a foot-ball game in Atlantic City. 

Short and stubby in stature, the full-back position was easily 
secured by him. With head ducked and body doubled up, he 
was a terror to opposing linemen and on numerous occasions 
has gained the required three or five yards. Quick as a flash? 
with the speed of a cannon ball, he has run back many punts 
with every opposing man lugging at him. 

With us but two years; he has won a place in every M. A. C. 
student's heart and no doubt he will show some university 
good football men are turned out at M. A. C. 





H

In athletics, as well as in every other contest in life, to win shows prowess 
to accept the result in true sportsman-like spirit whether victory or defeat, shows 
manhood. And while the means to win may be obtained in many different ways, 
either secret or open, the proper acceptance of the result can be obtained only when 
it is realized that the benefits of a sport are derived, not from the winning, but 
from the playing. And while our football team did not win some contests which 
we had hoped to carry off, yet the men played a clean hard game throughout the 
season and the final scores of the eight games showed three victories, three defeats, 
and two tie scores. 

The first game was played against Richmond College at Richmond on September 
30 and resulted in a tie, neither team being able to cross the goal-line. Next we 
met Fredericksburg College at Fredericksburg and beat them 5 to 0. In the Hop- 
kins game we had our opponents at our mercy, but for a fumbled ball which 
a Hopkins man scooped up and carried for a touchdown, thus beating us 6 to 3. 

Then we had a series of reverses, Catholic University tied us 6 to 6, St. Johns 
beat us 27 to 0, and Washington College scored 17 points to our 6. But our men 
showed their mettle when they came back and in the next game did what no other 
team in the State could do, beat Western Maryland 6 to 0. The closing game of 
the season was a hard fought one with Gallaudet in which we again came out 
victors 6 to 2. 

Between manj^ of the individual players there was little room for selection for 
each played his position well; but mention might be made of Captain Shipley 
whose work at quarter placed him in a position second to that of no man in the 
State.

Captain '''Pete'' Lednum 

''I love it; I love it," yelled "Pete" Lednum 'way 
down yonder in his crawling days, when he beheld his 
first baseball, he has been loving baseball ever since, 
more and more every day. 

Lednum succeeded Shipley as captain, when the latter 
left College, and has proved a wise choice in every par- 
ticular. His gingery, "Kim on l)iby, " Lednumese for 
"Come on baby," keeps things on the hop all through 
the game. 

Being from the land of Herzog and Baker, Pete faith- 
fully produces the nifty antics of the former around 
the hot region and smacks "em 
Avhere they ain't" in the 
proved home -run style of 
latter. 



'''Curley'' Lednum 

In Lednum we have an example of what constant 
plugging will do. Curley won his place on the 'Varsity 
last season by the work he had done while with the 
scrubs during his Soph Year, and by the hard plugging 
during the early part of last spring. And once on the 
college team he has decided to stay. 

His fielding is always good, but it is at the bat where 

he has displayed his true form, and timely hitting seems 

to be his forte. Slow but sure he is constantly in the 

game, and the race between the brothers for batting 

honors is alwavs a keen one. 

126 





<

These are not excuses; these are facts. ' 

Starting the season with a strong line-up, we have suffered such irreparable losses 
that our visions of a successful season have well nigh disappeared. But the old 
M. A. C. fighting spirit prevails, and we are going to fight to the last ditch. 

In the first place, Duckett, one of our three star twirlers, was compelled to quit 
the game soon after practice began, on account of the pressure of scholastic work. 
Next Shipley, captain and star, left after our first game to join the Worcester, New 
England League Team. Then little "Reds" Ritter, our peppery manipulator of 
the half-way station, acquired a twisted knee that threatens to keep him out of the 
game for the rest of the season. And now, Donn, the Eastern High School boy 
who made good as catcher right off the handle, has been compelled to leave College 
on the eve of our first St. John's contest. Likewise Sam Edmonson, our popular 
and efficient coach, has been called by his team for the 1912 campaign. 

However Captain "Pete" Lednum is a strenuous worker, and if Lady Fortune 
permits the present combination to remain intact long enough to learn to play 
together, we will show 'em something yet. For in Hoffecker and Smith we have a 
brace of Flingers mighty hard to beat; and besides, of the new players, Hatton, Knode 
Firor, Binder, and Hook, have shown their worth.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 




Captain '^BilV Kemp 

Naturally gifted with a fine physique, it was evident 
after a few performances that Kemp would make a ster- 
ling runner. And from his work during the last three 
years we see our predictions realized. 

In his Soph Year Bill won his "M" by performances 
in the quarter mile, and the next year saw him holding 
a much-coveted position on the College Relay. He also 
managed the track squad that year, and by his good 
work on the cinder path was elected captain for this 
season. 

During the indoor season just closed, Kemp has low- 
ered several track records in Washington; and in the 
National Guard Meet, tied for individual honors with 
Eller of Georgetown. 

In our own Intercollegiate Track Meet Bid carried 
off individual honors with 14 points; first in the mile 
and the 880 yard run, and second in both the quarter- 
mile and l)road jump. 



^'Gus'' Augustus 

Gus won his place on the College Relay during the 
latter part of last season; and was one of the four that 
took second place at the University of Pennsylvania 
Relay Carnival in April, 1911. 

Possessing good speed and a fair amount of stamina, 
Gus is a hard man to beat when in good trim. His per- 
formances in the individual events has also been of a 
good quality, and at the half-mile and mile can do as 
well as in the quarter. He took second in the mile last 
year at M. A. C.'s Inter-Collegiate Track Meet, being 
beaten out by inches by Woodward of St. John's. 




132 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Track 



With the return of warm weather the track men have begmi to get in the much 
needed outdoor training, in preparation for the University of Pennsylvania Relay 
Carnival; and also for our own outdoor Meet for the Collegiate Championship of 
the State. 

Before prophesying what we will do this spring, however, let us look back over 
what our team has done during the winter, in order that we may more accurately 
judge our chances for success this season. 

In February our relay team was beaten in the Fifth Regiment-Hopkins' Meet, 
by St. John's College. This was the first time in the last four years that M. A. C. 
has been defeated on a local track, and in this contest we gave the victors such a hot 
race that they were afraid to run us again. We however defeated Washington Col- 
lege and University of Maryland, and Western Maryland forfeited to us by non- 
appearance. In the individual events Johnson, Harrison, Grace, Greenberg, Trim- 
l)le and Kemp all ran well. In the District National Guard Meet in Washington 
in March, Grace won second place in the fifty-yard novice; and Kemp won first in 
the half-mile and second in the quarter; placingM. A. C. second in the total number 
of points scored in the Meet. Kemp also tied with Eller of Georgetown for the 
individual point trophy, each scoring eight points. 

Last April at Philadelphia our relay was defeated by Indiana State Normal in 
3 minutes 35f seconds. We however won second in a field composed of Indiana State 
Normal, Ursinus, Villanova, College of City of New York, Lehigh, Dickenson, 
Franklin and Marshall and Maryland Agricultural College. This year, in addition 
to those mentioned we will have to contend with Bucknell, LTniversity of Pittsburg, 
and Carnegie Tech, but Indiana State Normal will not be against us. 

Our track and field team as a whole shows weakness in the hurdles and fields 
events, with the exception of the shot-put. Tolson and Koehler can take care of this 
event for us; but our team needs a great deal of bolstering in the high jump and 
pole vault. 

Then, too, the team greatly misses the services of Duckett and Morris, who have 
been two of its mainstays for several years past ; but in the new men we have Harri- 
son, Johnson and Grace who by another year should easily take the place of the men 
lost by graduation. 




DONN RECEIVING 




SMITH ON THE MOUND 




Captain '''Ed'' Powell 



As a Lacrosse player Captain Powell has not been surpassed here 
in the short history of our newest and very progressive sport. 

After having played a very consistent game with the Mt. Wash- 
ington Lacrosse team, before entering M. A. C, "Ed" was natur- 
ally the man to start the game here. From a handful of men 
Powell organized the team three years ago, and because of the pro- 
ficiency attained forced the Athletic Association to recognize it 
last season as one of the adopted sports. 

The untiring efforts on Powell's part are certain to meet with 
success; and we sincerely hope to see the 
sport he has established, firmly holding its 
ground always. 



'Peck'' Davis 



When Lacrosse was first introduced at M. A. C, "Peck" was 
one of the first to respond to the call for candidates, and since 
then has been a regular member of the team as goal-keeper. 

He has developed into one of the best goal-men in the State, 
and his work against Harvard, Carlisle, and Mt. Washington 
Club was largely responsible for the small scores which these 
teams made. Time and again opposing attack men have made 
shots at goal which looked like good, only to be met by Peck's 
trusty stick and turned aside. He has also learned the art of 
using the body when the stick cannot be brought into play. 
Davis will be Avith us one more year.

136 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Lacrosse Team 



This is the third year that Lacrosse has l)een played at M. A. C, and the failure 
of the team to win most of its games comes from the fact that it had to play combi- 
nations completely out of our class. 

Among the strong teams which we encountered were listed Harvard University, 
Carlisle Indians, and Mt. Washington The latter is composed mainly of graduates 
of Hopkins, Swarthmore and Canadian Clubs, who all are stars at the game. 

Carlisle, the first team which we faced, was held down to the small score of 4 to 1. 
This proved that the men had the makings of a good team. One week later the 
same team from Carlisle defeated Hopkins, 8 to 2. 

Harvard was next encountered at College Park two days later, and the Crimson 
by excellent team and stickwork shot 8 goals to M. A. C.'s 1. 

Although our team had lost these two games, the fine showing against great odds 
was encouraging. However the following Saturdays saw our team take a slump and 
lose to both Baltimore City College and to Walbrook Club. 

We next met Mt. Washington, and although our team was again defeated we 
played a fine defensive game. Time and again the Mt. Washington attack would 
rush the ball down the field only to have it intercepted on a pass and carried back 
up the field again. 

Our only victory came in the last game, that with Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, 
when we blanked them 6 to 0. This game was replete with thrilling plays, and 
excellent team-work on our part and good defense work by "Poly." In this game 
the team played better than in any previous contest; their team-work and stick- 
work being the result of incessant and hard practice under adverse conditions, and 
having a string of defeats chalked up against them. The cool manner in which our 
men handled the balls was equal to the showing of any of the big teams in their 
games with us. 

Great credit for the fine showing of the team throughout the season is due to the 
excellent coaching of Mr. J. Straith Briscoe of the Mt. Washington Club, who was 
with the team two or three afternoons a week gratuitously giving the team valu- 
able points on the game.

Rifle Team

H. S. KoEHLER : Vice-President 

N. R. Warthen Secretary-Treasurer 

Being but the second year of its existence, Mar3^Iancrs Rifle Team is but slowly 
coming into fast company. 

Several fine scores in the inter-collegiate matches of the season just closed show 
that we have the nucleus for a first class team ; and with the same squad competing 
next spring, we should make a better name for ourselves. 

Early in October the call for candidates was issued and the response encouraging. 
But the trials were not so impressive, and soon the cuts left but a small squad, from 
which to pick a team for the Inter-Collegiate League. However the constant 
gallery practice each evening brought forth better results, and early in January 
the team was selected, to be composed of Aitcheson, Ames, Bean, Benson, E. AV., 
Irving, Johnson, Koehler, McCutcheon, Williams, R. C, Williams, T. H. and 
Warthen, Substitute. 

As the season progressetl our score showed great improvement, but even at that 
we could not hold our own against the other colleges, and lost only too frequently 
towards the close. 

As we lose no men from the team by graduation, it is to be hoped that the work 
next year will show more consistency and great improvement over the season 
closing.

Tennis 



Considering the past history of our tennis teams this year has been one of the 
most successful since the sport was introduced here. Previous records of our tennis 
team show that the enthusiasm exempUfied was far below that of the present year. 

Early in the season the courts were cleared off and practice begun. Powell, our 
best tennis player, was elected Captain, and under his coaching the team has pros- 
pered from the beginning. The candidates for the team were mostly men of experi- 
ence along this line, which greatly aided Captain Powell in his endeavor to establish 
a team that would be a credit to the institution, besides holding its own alongside the 
other sports of the College. 

It was proposed by members of the team that this branch of athletics should be 
subjected to the consideration of the Athletic Council, and that they in turn should 
report to the student-body as to the possibility of making the tennis department 
an authorized team. This proposition has been received by the student-body with 
great spirit, and it is hoped by the end of the year our Council will adopt this sug- 
gested scheme. 

In the past, games have been played, and medals offered to individuals, who have 
made a good showing. Captain Powell after a very close contest won in the tourna- 
ment of last year and a medal was awarded him for his excellent showing during the 
season.

" Kid" Sullivan Instructor 



This club was organized in December, 1911. "Kid" Sullivan, who has made a 
national reputation as a ring-artist, was secured as instructor. On account of the 
limited time at the disposal of the club, the course of instruction was necessarily 
too brief to make a finished boxer of each member; but it nevertheless taught the 
rudiments of this important science and furnished a safe means of protection in an 
ordinary fistic encounter. 

It was difficult at first to arouse interest in this sport, but it increased rapidly as 
the class progressed and the benefits to be derived became more evident. One of 
the important results accomplished by the club was to attract students to the alhed 
branches of indoor exercises; such as wrestling, bag-punching, rope-skipping, tum- 
bling, club-swinging and ring and parallel bar work. Never before has the old gym 
seen such busy days. 

There is undoubtedly an almndance of material for this branch of athletics at the 
College. Given the necessary facilities of apparatus and instruction, it would be 
safe to predict that M. A. C. could in a few years compete favorably with her sister 
colleges in these sports.

Literary Department 

Editorial 

In past years the only medium of literary expression at M. A. C. was the Literary 
Department of the Reveille. The advent of the Triangle has given our poets 
and authors a new outlet for the expression of their genius, so that a Department of 
Literature in the Reveille is no longer a necessity. 

We feel, however, that because of its age and past glories, the Department of 
Literature, like ''Commy's" General Orders, and the aged strap-jar, has achieved 
the dignity of a college tradition. 

Certain material has been included that may not conform with the dignity of a 
literary department. We have, however, introduced it in order to make this depart- 
ment interesting as well as literary.

The Psalm of Life 

What the heart of the Young Rat said to the Old-Boy. 
{Apologies to Longfellow.) 

Tell me not, oh cheerful comrade, 

"Cab" has had a memory, 
For it now is dead — or slumbers, 

"Commy" well can second me. 

Life is real! Not so German! 

"Sagen das wieder!" "S'il vous ])lait!" 
Zip and Zip — a flunk returneth 

"Boohoo's" cough is worse today. 

No enjoyment, not for Myron, 

Wood-work's to be done today; 
"Doc" and "M. C." plan o'er sandwich 

Who will pass and who will stay. 

Art is long, and "Catfish" waiteth. 

For our pause, though slight perceived 

Then, like cannon, roareth loudly 
"Stuff" — another zip received. 

In th dense, oul-cdored "Chem Lab." 

Doctor Mac is sure to be ; 
We like stupid, driven cattle. 

Standing all his tyranny. 

Trust no future, howe'er Brought-on 

Let the "O. C." catch his prej^; 
Burn — burn all the late and absent, 

From the pave, at break of day. 

"Lize the Great" won, she'll remind us 

We can well af-Ford to try, 
And departing bring back with us 

Crisp notes, medals — e'en the sky. 

Footprints that perhaps a farmer 

Finds along each apple row, 
"Bommy" says, by inference shows us, 

Where the sweetest apples grow.

Let us, then, "Step to the bhxckboard" 
Professor Harrison's one delight; 

Better than to lisp and stutter 
"Curfew shall not ring tonight."

\ place for exploitation, of the laws of thunderation, 

Mixed with sulphur and damnation — and with fulminating fizz; 
Where we go to raise a ruction, learn to reason by induction, 

That by Newton's law of suction — we are certain that "it is." 
Where sweet incense e'er burn'ng. sets our nostrils sadly yearninj; 

For pure ozone's glad returning, — and fit atmosphere to breathe; 
While dark clouds our heads o'erhanging, caused by loud dynamic banging 

With the harsh incessant clanging — of a blast lamp fairly seeth. 
Where explosions happen daily, no enchantments for the aily, 

Since the air is always haily — with some falling of debris; 
Where 'tis not to be expected, that discussions be neglected, 

So that work might be reflected, — hours to loaf from nine to three.

150 THE 1912 REVEILLE 



A Street Car Ride 



To get on a street car the first thing is to hail it. This consists in the simple 
operation of getting on the south-east corner of a street running east and west to 
hail a west-bound car, and on the north-west corner of the same street to hail an 
east-bound car, and on the north-east corner of a street lying north and south to 
hail a south-bound car, and on the south-west corner of the same street to hail a 
north-bound car. One time in ten you do this. The other nine cars you miss, 
experimenting. After being properly situated you wave your umbrella or your 
handkerchief, or your cork-leg, or for that matter any available object, at the 
oncoming car, and if the motorman is ahead of time he'll stop a couple of hundred 
yards from where you are and let you run and get one. If he don't stop as is usually 
the case you become more and more emphatic as others j^ass you and finally resort 
to extreme measures such as blowing out the window-lights with a shot-gun. This 
method is effective as a rule though in obstinate cases it becomes necessary to derail 
the car. Under no conditions jump in front of the car. This irritates the motor- 
man. The company prohibits him from killing more than ten people a day so as to 
leave some for another tlay and he may have already reached this number. And 
even if he hasn't he'll be in mortal terror lest he only maim you for life. So be fore- 
bearing and avoid such contingencies. 

Well, maybe you get aboard after awhile. The car is crowded. It alwaj^s is. 
You get wedged in among a German woman with a basket of fish, a glue factory- 
hand, an Italian with onion-perfumed breath, two negroes and an epileptic. 

You contribute to the conductor's private charity fund, unless you are as big a 
crook as he is, and settle down to enjoy the ride. The car gives a lurch, and falling 
back, you land on the Teuton's foot with both of yours. Fish brine souses your 
shirt front, and the Italian adds to your pleasure by breathing heavily under 3'our 
nose. Another lurch and you reel forward against the aromatic one of the glue 
factory. You plant one foot in a basket of eggs and make wild digs at the atmos- 
phere with the other. Finally your pants-leg brushes *hat of the horse-hoof artist 
and refuses to leave it. You give a wild pull and just succeed in disengaging it, 
in company with a sample of the other's overalls, when the car sways once more. 

You recover yourself to find your arm affectionately encircling the corpulent 
figure of a negro washer- woman, and your other hand tightly gripping four smoked 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 151 

herring drawn from the German's basket. You cease embracing the African, 
replace the fish and start to apologize, when the car whirls around the corner at an 
acute angle. You lose your balance and fall back on the Italian. He in turn bowls 
over the negro. The latter gives two wild clutches and grabs the German woman 
with one fist and the factory-hand with the other, and you all go down in a tangled 
heap of arms and legs. Just at this opportune time the epileptic topples over in a 
fit, and the lady standing next to him falls in a dead faint. 

The sight is appalling. Seven human beings, in various stages of discomfort, 
grovelling on the floor of the car with all the delicious aroma of onions, smoked her- 
ring and horse-hoofs, arise from the chaotic mass and hang like sweet perfume on the 
oath laden atmosphere. 

To cap the climax, the conductor develops a sudden streak of energy and bawls, 
"Mulberry Street!!" high and clear above the tumult. The car stops with a jolt, 
3'ou roll over twice, slide out the open door and pitch headlong down the steps. 

Yes, let me repeat my last observation with double emphasis — it affords extreme 
pleasure to ride on a street car!! 



Der Gommandant 



Who sthruts der hall und office 'round, 
Mit sefrel agzes to be ground, 
Und raged, und cussed, und always frowned?

Who holds you here when you'd depart, 
Und told you dat you're too damned shmart, 
Und how he'd luve to soak you, hardt?

RELAY TEAM WINS 

M. A. C. clinched the Southern Cham- 
pionship by defeating Georgetown in the 
las' relay race by 50 yards last Saturday, at 
Convention Hall. Owing to the illness of 
three of our men, "Bill" Kemp ran all four 
relays. As the four Georgetown men failed 
to put in an appearance, their places in the 
Blue and Gray team were taken by our men.

that nobody was present we are unable to 
report his speech. 

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION MEETING 

There will be a special meeting of the 
Athletic Association on the 30th of February 
to consider the following proposed amend- 
ments to the by-laws: 

Article XVII — Eligibility

Varsity teams shall be permitted by this 
Association to take less than thirty hours 
per week of regular college work. 



MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



153

Varsity teams shall be permitted by this 
Association to engage in, take, or flunk any 
Faculty examination or quiz except during 
the playing season. 

Section 3. No professor shall hold any

tenly, or quizzed; and no men except those 
by it or them declared ineligible shall be so 
examined, orally or writtenly or quizzed.

THE JANUARY TRIANGLE 

"The pen is mightier than the sword," 
so said "Jack" Johnson, eminent philoso- 
pher and confidence man. If all men were 
like "Jack" Johnson there would be no room 
for editors, but we do not meet a Johnson 
every day. Ask Mrs. Pankhurst. This has 
nothing to do with this article but it is cus- 
tomary for the reviewer to start out with a 
quotation from the classics, to show his 
erudition, and how well qualified he is to 
umpire a game of pinochle. 

The story in the current issue of the 
Triangle is: "The High Price of Meat, or 
Why We Eat Eggs," by Charlie Dory, '13. 
We have long felt the need of an egg story, 
and we are especially pleased with the sav- 
ory manner in which this is served. Charlie 



shows the skill-et required to prepare such 
a treat in the way of a good hen-fruit repast. 

Mr. Staley as usual has composed a new 
melody. Its briefness is charming, and it 
would find a place on the third floor back, 
but the band holds full sway there. 

The "Sense and Nonsense" column under 
the supervision of Mac, '12, shows how Joe 
Miller's effort, "Paradise Lost," should be 
interpreted. Anyone from Frederick showing 
familiarity with the quips contained therein 
will be politely chloroformed. 

That high-flown piece of tailless poetry 
by Tar-belly which commences, 

"Oh where is my wondering boy tonight? 
Here I am mother flying my kite," 

is a delightfully edifying and worthy of 
more cord. He jumps a step higher and 
adds, 

"He tore a slice from the n'th degree. 
Hurled it farther than thought can see, 
LTpsetting the water, the milk, and the tea. 
And a platter of soft-boiled eggs." 

ALUMNI NOTES 

'10, Ex-Captain A. C. Adams has been 
assigned by the War Department to take 
over the classes of Lieutenant J. S. U., and 
to instruct the Seniors, as many as care to 
take up advanced work in military science, 
how and how not to enter the National 
Guard, irrespective of age, color or previous 
condition of servitude. 

Ex-Captain H. H. Allen has been urgently 
requested by the Rossbourg Club to appear 
at a dance now and then for the pleasure of 
the College Widows. 

'11, J. W. Kinghorne is a frequent vi?itor 
to M. A. C. (the mess-hall.) 

Paul Revere Little has given up his re- 
search work on the farm and will now look 
for another job.

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



We believe that A.N. Woodward of Canada 
was instrumental in the recent defeat of 
Premier Laurier, and have grave fears 
now regarding the annexation of the United 
States and "Doc's" adopted land. 



DRESS PARADE 

The author when he vividly describes the 
many intricate geometrical figures, laying 
stress upon the irregular curves which are 
so unconsciorsly formed by the Battalion, 
shows great i)owers of observation and per- 
haps accuracy. 

On the whole the January Triangle was a 
useful issue, and we extend our congratula- 
tions to the staff whose indefatigable labors 
have done so much for literature on the 
Campus. 

Reginald Algerxox Keelee. 
CAMPUS COMMENT 

R. L. Tolson '12, because of his slim frame 
(not taking into account the improvements 
on said frame) has been mistaken for the 
flag-pole several evenings by the "Color 
Guard" at Retreat. 



E. Z. Martz, '12, is an ardent suffragette. 

It is not likely that the Senior Class will 
give their annual aeroplane flights this 
summer as they will be engaged elsewhere, 
no one knows where — shop, chem. lab.. 
South America, bell-hopping; anyone of the 
suggestions very plausible. 



PERSONALLE 

As long as life is hard and tough, 
Please make the biscuits soft enough. 

There was found on the Campus this 
morning the body of a cat cut to pieces and 
sewed up in a sack. The circumstances 
seem to preclude any suspicions of suicide. 

EDITORIAL 

HOW LONG IS A STRING? 

Much discussion has lately been promul- 
gated among not only those interested but 
also those indirectly concerned as well as 
over the thesis propounded in order to 
receive full discussion before definite action 
shall have been taken by several Seniors of 
position, authority, capacity and induct- 
ance (for there are such) to the effect that 
before, or at least not later than. College 
Park engages in any more activities requir- 
ing the services of men already interested 
in other lines, a definite conclusion should 
be reached, since it is a string that is to make 
this additional energy possible and to answer 
the all-important quiz Why is a string, it is 
necessary that every man who is neither so 
absorbed in his own lines of activity that 
he has no thought for others nor so careless 
of the welfare of Alma Mater that he will 
not spend time in serious meditation over 
the serious problems that confronted her, 
nor so befuddled in judgment that he dis- 
agrees with us, the paramount importance 
is plain of coming to a decision, founded on 
reasoning from knowledge of the facts, over 
the issue that we have set forth and if there 
is anything that needs to be said, see us.

From the 0, D.'s Office 



(Apologies to Edgar Allmi Poe) 

On the twelfth of hist September, ya! distinctly I remember, 

All the Sophs and Freshies lumbered, up the pathway, men galore. 

While I looked there, deeply doubting, suddenly there came a shouting, 
From an old-boy gently routing — routing out the 'Rats' once more. 
"'Tis some Sophomore," I muttered, "shouting at a 'rats' front door — 
Shorely he will get his, shore." 

But the shout changed to a rumbling, knew I well the rat was grumbling, 
"Gee he's foolish, soon they'll get him, then the fun will start once more. 

Thus I sat me. Little Master, waiting for this dread disaster, 
Then it started, fast and faster, till my patience was no more. 
Then I up the steps went bounding, till I reached the topmost floor. 
Only peace reigned there once more. 

While I stood engaged in guessing, not one syllable expressing, 

From the "Roost" there came the gentle purring of a Thomas-cat. 

Then the growl of canine fellow, then the air grew quickly yellow 
For the sound was not so mellow, not the song of humble "rat," 
But the din oft deathlike contest — each one in his Last Combat, 
Canine, feline, — dog and cat.

And reads the printed pages of a book. 

No more the bow-string tightens to his arm 

No more his vagrant feet tread winding streams, 

His mind upon the book has found strange charm 
And so, Dear God, he pays the price of dreams. 



A Toast "To the Boys of M. A. Cr 

As o'er these College days you glide. 

Through scenes of toil and fame; 
Hope be your star and future guide, 

And happiness remain. 

Let sunshine gladden every hour, 
Though hard and steep the path may be — 

And fill your anxious hearts with trust 
In Him who pilots thee. 

Safe be your journey to the end. 

Faithful your duties be; 
And may dark clouds that o'er you pass, 

Find brighter hopes in thee. 

May brightest flowers bloom for you, 

Oh, boys, with hearts so free! 
Our love shall reign eternal — • 

For the boys of M. A. C.

]\lr. Applicant — '(iood morning Sir." 

Mr. Business Man — "Good morning." 

Mr. A. — "I have been sent here by Strayer's Business College to apply for the position 

that is open in your office." 

Mr. B. M.— "Well, go ahead." 

Mr. A. — "I am nineteen years old; I have a thorough i)ublic school education; I am a 

young man of regular habits and a-n accustomed to hard work, and I can be trusted. 

I am sure I can please j'ou in these respects." 

"I have just graduated from the Stenographic and Commercial Departments of 
Strayer's Business College. I can write shorthand accurately, have a good speed on the 
typewriter, and I am familiar with the latest accounting methods. I write a good business 
hand (here is a specimen of it, Mr. Business man) and -I am quick and accurate at figures. 
I have a knowledge of Business Correspondence, Filing Devices, Banking, and Commence, 
and am familiar with many of the mechanical devices used in the up-to-date office." 
Mr. B. M. — "That will do. If you know how to do office work as well as you know how to 
apply for a position, you will suit me very well. What salary do you want?" 
Mr. A. — "I will leave that with you, ^Ir. Business Man. Try me for a week, then pay me 
what you think I am worth." 

Mr. B. M. — "That's a good i)lan. When can you begin?" 
Mr. A. — "Now." 

Mr. B. M.— (calls Mr. C.) "Mr. C, this is Mr. Applicant from Strayer's Business College. 
He seems to be well trained, so I have engaged him for our work. When you are at leisure 
step in here again, I shall want to see you." 

This interview is typical of hundreds that take place every year between 

Baltimore business men and Strayer's students. This school opens the doors of 

successful business offices for j'oung men and women. 

If you prepare yourself now to become Mr. Applicant, you may in a few 

years become Mr. Business Man.

160 THE 1912 REVEILLE 

September 12 — Slowly, not to say sorrowfully, everyone climbs the hill and clasps 
hands, also the pen and register book. 

September 13-16 — The Sophs become acquainted with the Freshies, or to be 
correct the Freshies with the Sophs. 

All the Sophs come visiting 

Me, tucked snug in bed; 
I then go a-traveling, 

Landing place — my head. 

September 17 — Sunday promenade. A rekindling of old flames. "Rats" learn 
that going to church saves more than their souls; eh, Sophs? 

September 18 — Quartermaster's Department very much in evidence. "Fatty" 
Reese out-distances the tape-line so, "no uniform for him." 

"But the wonderful part about Fatty, 
Whose pattern, I ween, has no peer. 
Is his ponderous, scale smashing beauty. 
Ah, that is what maketh him dear."

THE 1912 REVEILLE 



Senior Class reorganized to strains of "Graft while the dew is falling." 

September 20 — If a shearing stress can relieve itself, the same will be a relief to 
"Josh" Miller. Otherwise he claims his book will have to be re-leafed. 

September 22 — Sophs give a reception to "Rats." The rooms were beautifully 
decorated, as were the "Rats;" the refreshments were served in a new and artistic 
style, as were other things; everyone departed in fine spirits — except the rats. 

September 23 — Saturday. 

"Every time I go to town 

The fellows keep rougli-housin' my room around! 
Makes no difference if I do go to town, 

They gotta stop dumpin' my room aroun.' " 

September 24 — And behold these three, Burrier, "Frog" and "Fuzzy," did 
pounce upon "Dope" in his bed, and "Dope" did soon awaken. And the words 
that he did speak were not found in the dictionary. 

September 27 — Football practice. Quite a conglomeration of jersies, trousers 
and vari-hued stockings; gleanings of St. John's, Western Maryland, Washington 
College and Hopkins melees.

One Commandant." No ''Handle with care" sign. From appearances he can 
do that for himself. 

October 4 — A shining light from the Powell-Davis Headquarters. Also an 
inspiration to Senior Economics. Hasty exit. 

October 5 — Flower pots, corn -shocks, signs, etc., aid in beautifying sidewalk. 

"These decorations for you "Big Chief," 
Out of the greenhouses, down by the hill; 
From far off Cab's and yonder fields, 
And the roads that lead to Hyattsville. 

A festival-day, no doubt for you, 

But think of the toil and trouble to us ; 
From two until six we labored like Turks, 

And then when you burned us. "Well, did we cuss?" 

October 7 — The atmosphere is super-saturated with a gentle dew from Heaven.

FROM 

Guess Work— to Certainty 

To Our Friends, Our Customers: 

The greatest thing that has happened in our business lives and in the almost hundred 
years' experience of our establishment, is the fact, the seed business in the last few years, has 
emerged from a business of some indefiniteness to one of almost absolute certainty. 

The three great points of Trustworthy Seeds are: First, Stock Purity; Second, Mechani- 
cal Purity; Third, Germination and Vitality or Viability. 

The first and most important point, Stock Purity, rests almost entirely upon the knowledge 
and integrity of the Seed Grower. The accumulated experience of four generations, almost 
a hundred years, has taught us who are the most Trustworthy Specialists among the Seed 
Growers of the world. 

The second point, Mechanical Purity, for many years, was decided by the accuracy of the 
human eyes and years of experience, but now, nothing so indefinite is done, for with Graduate 
Botanists making use of scientific and minutely accurate apparatus working in our completely 
equipped Seed Laboratory, we are able to know to the one-hundredth part of one per centum, 
the pure seed; the amount of small sticks, dirt and other inert matter; the number and kind 
of foreign seeds, if any, of every variety of seed we buy or sell. 

Mechanical Purity has never entered into Vegetable Seed for they are grown under such 
intensive cultivation, foreign seeds are entirely absent. 

Man's genius has perfected cleaning machinery that recleans all Field Seeds, Clover and 
Grasses within an extremely small fraction of being absolutely pure. 

The third point, Germination and Vitality or Viability, To be of value, all seeds must 
grow and grow vigorously and with the aid of the most recent scientific information and test 
chambers constructed on principles laid down by the Agricultural Department Experts, 
together with our hot house tests and field tests; the germination properties of our seeds are 
frequently and accurately tested — several tests being made of each item at the same time 
under different environments, so as to tally not only the number of seeds that grow, but also 
the vigor and strength with which they grow. 

What Vou Arc Justly Entitled to 

Surrounding Our Seed with all these earnest efforts to have them Trustworthy, Pure and 
True, we can with confidence solicit your order for seed for 1912 and believe that unless you 
secure seeds that have been as carefully watched and protected from start to finish, you are 
not getting what you are justly entitled to. Good seeds are at the bottom of all good agri- 
culture, they are the foundation stones, success is impossible without them. Our chief ambition 
for 1912 is to make happy and more prosperous every customer of our house.

"At times while in my lonesome room, 
When care and I are leagues apart; 
A gentle phantom steals and lays, 
A tender hand upon my heart." 

November 22 — Owing to the extreme coldness, the leaves on the campus are 
used for fuel — a yearly ceremony. 
November 23 — Only a bum joke cracked today. 

Cahvell — ^Why is it that mercury settles to the bottom of a thermometer when 
it gets so blamed cold? 

Kemp (of the brilliant mind) — It huddles together so as to keep warm.

This illustration shows a scene in the Testing Department of the 
General Electric Company. A group of technical graduates are 
testing two large frequency changer sets by the pumping back 
method. Each set consists of of a 1250 Kw. alternator driven by 
a synchronous motor with direct connected exciter. Sixteen men 
are required to take the readings in this test. 
400 to 500 technically trained men are employed as Student Engi- 
neers in the Testing Department of the General Electric Company. 
These men test all the apparatus manufactured at the Schenectady 
and Pittsfield works, including steam turbines, and are transferred 
from one section to another at regular intervals. 
The work is not easy and always pleasant, but offers an excellent 
opportunity for the engineering student to secure a practical 
knowledge of the latest types of all kinds of electrical machinery. 
Applications for employment in the Testing Department should be 
sent to Mr. A. L. Rohrer, Electrical Superintendent.
