The spirit still in us lingers 

And it's hard for us to part, 
But a hand is beck'ning, beck'ning, 

Like the throbbing of a heart. 

Tis the hand of Fate that calls us 

From out the future years 

And it bids us to hurry, hurry. 

To shed not useless tears. 

But where is he among us 

Whose heart is now so cold 
That he will hurry onward. 

As once he boasted bold? 

He's missing from our roster ; 

For a tear drop dims his eye — ■ 
Yes, he loves his Alma Alater 

When he bids her now good-bye. 

Ah, friends, though we may wander 
The world around and 'round 

Forever will this campus 
Be to us a hallowed ground. 

And our spirits will ever hover 

In darkness o'er these walls 
And our footsteps, though in silence. 

Shall forever tread these halls. 

The liditor.

O those of you who love us and to those of you who love 
us not, to you all — (Greeting. 

Once again, the forty-fifth time in our Alma Mater's 
historv, a Class has hided its day beneath these i)ortals 
and is now severing the bonds of comi)anionship. to dis])erse — we 
kn.ow not whither. 

Insignificant ma\- be the iiroi)ortion of one to forty-five, but 
even as one little grain of sand glistens among thousands on a 
sunny beach we would gleam forth to the world's eyes today, for 
this day means nuich to us indeed. Look herein, and you will 
find upon the leaves of this little voluiue that which we hoi)e may 
serve to mark our trail — to depict our "Footi)rints on the sands 
of time" — while here we dwelt four bright and happy years. 

Good-bve.

C31d boy, are those gray hairs I see, 

Or do the lights deceive. 
And falsely have my eyes behold 

A thing I can't believe? 
I know I'm wrong, but brother, stop ! 

Discard your worldly ways 
For one fleet hour, and hark ye back 

To live in other days. 

In those old days of college life 

You never shall forget, 
And think you on one truth that is^ 

Your college loves you yet. 
Well do I know that you recall 

A lad who left his home 
And traveled here to live beneath 

The shelter of this dome. 

And mind you of his timid look 

When in a Freshman's role 
That meeting of the "rats" was held — 

His first step toward the goal? 
And then how on the football field 

He watched his team's first game. 
And how th-ere swelled up in his heart 

A something hard to name? 



15 







Xow once again the scene is changed, 

You hear his jolly shout, 
As in the Sophomore's gay garb 

He sends his challenge out. 
Then on to Junior's happy days 

You see him, debonair. 
And hear 'mid dance and pleasure gay 

His laughter on the air. 

At last a Senior you behold. 

With all a Senior's pride. 
But waiting to emliark his raft 

Upon the ocean's tide. 
Perhaps your heart still may desire 

To live again that day. 
But well you know that for us all 

There comes but once life's May. 

So treat them kindly, Ijrother boy, 

They'll come to you no more. 
Those Freshman, Junior, Senior years. 

Or the years of Sophomore. 
But still on you your college looks. 

As year piles up on year ; 
Your life, though you are long since gone, 

Still holds its impress here. 

Still do we praise you in our songs 

And mark each noble deed — 
Our lives ye mold, as now we reap 

The harvest of your seed. 
Today we are the children of 

The mother you once knew. 
And we must con those dear old tasks 

That once were conned by you. 

Our mother longs for you, big boy. 

She's proud of each good deed ; 
Where e'er you go. what e'er your fate, 

She wishes you God-speed. 
So come back just this once in dreams 

And tread this dear old hall. 
So that your Alma Mater's heart 

May feel your footsteps fall. 

L'Envoi 

Dream on, old boy, dream on tonight — 

There's a vacancy back here 
That you may fill again tonight 

By the gift of just one tear. 

The Editor.

"Greater men liave lix'ed than I — /'/// / doubt it." 

"Les," the boy with the coiiTure, known by the 
chemists as "Curley head by peroxy," has a large 
ego and affects the walk of a genius, but there all 
signs end. A fairly good student is he when 
absorbed in working on his masterpiece, "The 
Search for a Waist Line."

"Johnnv" has a greater affinity for develop- 
ment than for his professed love, chemistry. His 
l)landness of countenance is his chief stock in 
trade — that saintly countenance which you'd 
hardly associate with water bags and mysterious 
thundering bumps after lights. Looks self-satis- 
lied, too, doesn't he? Here's one from Uncle 
Johnny : "There are enough serious things in 
life now without considering yourself one of 
tlicm. Desist!"

"Jim," he of the "Don't josh the king" fame,

special deliveries to his Dean begging that he 
cease impairing "Jim's" health by making him 
overstudy. Periods of gloom are prone to come

"Here's to love and unity, dark eorners and 
opportunity" 

"Isn't it strange that such an unusually bright 
boy can make of himself such a perfect fool?" 
observed a certain young lady a short time ago. 
She was unfortunate enough to occupy a seat 
just in front of "Brock" when the two were 
attending high school together. Indeed, this re- 
mark discribes our tall, handsome, eccentric 
"Bill" to the proverbial T. As for the social 
side of "Brock's" career, little can be said about 
him prior to his debut into Hyattsville Saturdav 
night society, where he seems to have been lion- 
ized by the elite of that "burg" and other adjoin- 
ing centers of population. However, his occa- 
sional splurges seem not to have wholly demoral- 
ized him, for he still manages to lead his Class 
with the ease and grace you would expect from 
a casual glance at his onery "mug."

"A man of parts" 

"Burly" entered M. A. C. in the fall of 1913. 
Ever since that memorable date he has consist- 
ently attended classes once or twice a week. If 
he can get through life as easy in the future as 
in the past he deserves our increased adjniration 
and best wishes. Without joking, though, 
"Burly" is a fine fellow and through his pleasant 
geniality and courtesy has accjuired a large circle 
of friends.

''Please go 'zvay an' let nic sleep." 

Stanley is a National authority on the "Sleep- 
ing Sickness." He can raise more roughhouse 
than any two men in college. The derivation 
of his name is well known to "rats": "Stan," 
from the ^laltese, meaning "humpty" (to stand 
on end) ; and "ley," from the Irish, meaning 
■'dum]:)ty" (bed). Or "Humpty Dumpty," 
svnonvm "To stand a bed off its legs."

"May cz'ery hair of your head be as a sliiuiiu/

It is most fitting that we take this oppfjrtunit\ 
to present to "Georgie" the honor of being the 
largest }oung man of the Class of '16. Con- 
gratulations to the man who is as tall as he and 
who can carry himself as gracefully. "(leorgie" 
secretly laid plans for his future, but he is sadly 
mistaken if he thinks we fail to comprehend 
his ambitions. Our first glance at this grandilo-

This is "Stiff." In the fall of 'thirteen he used 
up the other end of his round-trip ticket and came 
back to us. This time he landed in the Class of 
'16. Let the music be recreative. We hear of 
great men, genius of variety, but what have we 
here? What variety, I mean, is this? What 
sign of genius does he bear? Wisdom and youth 
are seldom joined in one. Time's gradual touch 
has moulded into beauty many a tower. "Oh, 
"Stiff'!' thou art both beautiful and wise." His 
favorite occupation is Annapolis. His hobby is 
Annapolis. His sole existence is Annapolis. An-

"K. G." looks peaceable, but if you want to get 
a good im])ersonation of a wild Indian on the

it gets to going properly. You're right ; he's 
not much on the military stunt, although he did 
win his spurs in that famous organization, the 
signal corps, and was almost recommended to 
the Governor of the State. "E. G." expects to 
be a farmer, but we think he would make more 
of a success as a house-wrecker.

"Duke" always tries to cover up the "bald

ple get bald after marriage, others are bald from 
birth, but "Duke" acquired his "skating-rink" 
from the effects of hair-raising episodes of col-

not so much the bald spot that counts as what 
you have directly under it — we know that the

Four long and happy years we've watched and waited.

For now we must unfurl our flag as Seniors

And pledge our hands and hearts to thee in gladness.

(2?G?/Z ),(f^ O squeeze into a dozen volumes the stupendous deeds and multi- 
farious activities of the Class of 1916 would be the work of a 
Ridpath or a Bancroft. It is obvious then that for me to attempt 
more than the barest epitome in the couple of paltry pages to 
which I am constricted would be conceit or worse. 

We were gathered from the four corners of the earth, and 
the Lord only knows where else. Forty-three answered the hrst 
roll call, and a motley crew it was. Ignorant, green, self-conscious 
and confused, but withal conceited and bouyant, it was just such 
a crowd as Freshmen are wont to be the world over. If we were 
lost it was for but a short while, for the Sophomores, acting in a 
truly gallant and chivalrous manner, soon pointed out to us the 
paths of virtue, humility and servility. Not only were the devious 
ways pointed out, but by persuasion as insiduous and deljilitating as only the 
cajolery of Sophomores can be, and by deeds of admonition so heinous that the}' 
must have been born of the devil himself, were we induced to follow the straight 
and narrow ways. 

Then came the lire, destroying our living quarters. Our common loss served 
not only to bind us closer together, but it also made us a bit more tolerable to the 
"old boys." 

The training to which we had been subjected in our Freshman year at the 
hands of the Class of 1915 was to stand us in good stead in the next, our Sopho- 
more year. Tradition had taught us that the Sophomore Class is the College's 
"King's Jester," the original and only dull care chaser, the "Step lively, watch 
vour step" of the collegiate world. 

We were all of tliat — and more. Our }ear of experience on the greasy end 
of the same stick had ripened us. The traditions and lore of all time were ours. 
Were we not Sophomores? Were we not the Lords of Maryland Agricultural 
College, with the world of quaking Freshmen at our feet in humble subjection 
and servitude? And if the dastardly deeds to which we were subjected were 
fo;;si)ired. then the ones w4iich we perj^etrated were ///spired. Surely the boy who 
w^rote — 

"See the gallant Sophomore, 
Behold his form so fair ; 
How proud he is. 
How stern he is ; 
His skull is filled w^ith air"—

^putor (UlaBfl l^tatnni— Continued 

must have remembered with undimmed \'i\idness the davs when he was a Sopho- 
more, and knew everything and could do anything on this Httle green earth. 

The latent potentialities of our Class even evinced themselves in such an 
anomalous form as an aspiration on the part of the majority of the Class to learn 
the l)arl)er's trade. Indeed, the Experiment Station was actuallv converted into 
a practical laboratory designed to make master barbers and smooth-faced (also 
sore-faced) "rats." 

Hut, notwithstanding our alleged barbarities, a larger percentage of new 
students became satisfied with life at Maryland Agricultural College than had 
been the case for years previously, which fact testifies to our eft^cienc^• and 
congeniality. 

The social whirl of college life in our Juni(jr year rushed down and engulfed 
us. The big games, the numerous Rossbourg dances, the "joUv Good Times," 
the Class dances, and the various other college functions simplv swamped us^ 
We also experienced our most strenuous year from an academic point of view, 
our courses waxing more and more difiicult. 

W^ithal, we passed one of the busiest years of our college careers, and yet 
it was probably the most joyous and carefree of any — a sort of amorphous, 
happy medium between the helter-skelter Sophomore and the dignified Senior. 

"Ah, there!" "How are you?" "Hey, thar !" "Do I look upon vou well?" 
"Well, I think I do." "Hel-lo!" "You're lookin' fine — where are the kids?" 

"Well. I'll be !" Such were the salutations which renewed the Class com- 

raderie and personal friendshi])s this fall when we assembled once more. At 
last that for which we had been joyfully striving and praying for four years was 
ours. We were Seniors. The thing grew on us cumulatively, insiduously. But, 
alas ! "The grass is always just a little greener on the other side," and we 
realized that the eml)odiment of our dream fell far short of our ideal. It was 
denuded of all the splendor and dignity always associated with the estate of the 
Senior, and shorn of its former lure and lustre. Yes, we were Seniors, but at 
what a cost ! This was to be our last year at the old "Aggie vSchool." We were 
stunned. 

But the busy life of the Senior soon assuaged our sorrow. The fervor and 
excitement of the football season with its big games, the rush of Rossbourg 
dances, the Junior Prom., and the whirl of the various other social and collegiate 
endeavors and activities, along with the omnipresent scholastic duties, all furnished 
outlets for our unlimited energies. Then came spring, and before we realized 
it the "Finals" were at hand. 

We are not so egotistic as to claim that we are the best Class that has ever 
graduated from Maryland Agricultural College ; but we do claim, and through 
no mere braggadocio, that we have been one of the most progressive and con-

^pntar (Elasa ^iatorij — Concluded 

structively active classes which has passed through the portals of jMarvlancl 
Agricultural College. Not only have the members of the Class of 1916 evinced 
an intense interest in athletics, scholastic work and social endeavor, but they 
have done more — they have been leaders in all of the many and diverse collegiate 
activities, not only in the Senior year but throughout our entire college career. 

We have had the privilege of being students at the Maryland Agricultural 
College during the inauguration of a new era of progress and expansion. We 
are, as it were, a milestone marking the beginning of that delightful epoch in 
which this old College is to assume a new and greater growth, an era in which 
the promise of our youth will be realized to the fullest. 

And now we have come to the end of our Senior year and to Commencement. 
We sit and contemplate. From the past the old joys and the old sorrows are 
reliorn. The visions of former conquests and victories, the words and deeds of 
kindness and lirotherly loxe, and the memory of old and sacred associations 
troop mockingly by. .All of the ancient traditions and lore of "Maryland" surge 
down upon us, overwhelming us. Ah, it is hard. 

But from the depth of our sorrow there springs a high resolve to live the 
spirit of old Maryland Agricultural College, as the Spartans of old lived the 
spirit of Sparta. 

W^here the pass of Thermopylae winds its way between the craigs and the 
sea there still stands on the spot where three hundred Spartans died for liberty, 
a pillar, upon which is inscribed : 

"Go, stranger, tell it at Lacedaemona that we lie here in obedience to her laws." 

Today, the echo of these simple words resounds down through the ages the 
truth that the path to manhood lies through honor and duty well performed. 
If, perchance, we, like these Spartans of old, carry from this life naught save 
the bitter wounds and scars of its battles, so long as we continue true an.d free, 
and so long as the spirit of honor, of progress, of justice and of love — the spirit 
of old "IMaryland" — is the bugle which summons us to action, then not only 
.shall we have lived purely the spirit of our Alma INIater, but we shall also have 
accjuired a character as noble and eternal as the immortal source from whence it 
sprung. 

One word more. If, fellow-classmates, in an idle moment vou should 
peruse these pages and through the vista of time there beams forths a little ray 
of happiness to brighten one wee hour, if they can for you live the olds days 
o\ier just once more, then, fellows of 'sixteen, the Historian will feel that your 
trust was not misplaced.

KNIORS are just Freshmen grown old. And the "Skv Pilot'' 
("Rabbi" Darrow ) is but little better than a vSenior as far as 
ancientness is concerned, and but little worse as — but that will 
come later in the story. 

The Junior year of 1914-15 had been a hard, hard year for 
the Seniors-To-Be of 1916. Due to terrific brain ( ?) work, the\- 
were about all in. So the gentleman whose business it is to smile 
cheerily, put people on cabinets, and get up three-legged races, 
decided for the good of posterity (and the individuals concerned), 
to send delegates to the Middle Atlantic Y. Al. C. A. Convention. 
.\nd they were sent. 

It was an exceedingly difficult undertaking to select the "chosen 
few" from among the numerous material. Derrick was enlisted 
from the Juniors, of course, but when he found out who his companions were 
to be. "Harvey" got a job. First on the list was "Whitner" Aitcheson, whose 
failing is girls. He "loves" the ladies. Put him in F>orneo and the C[ueens would 
resign from their thrones — here they merely resign from the other fellow ; and, 
what is worse, he "sings" in a choir. Next comes "Ed" Taylor, of the deep- 
dyed villain type, with an angelic smile and "lean and hungry" thoughts. "Ed" 
is a baseball catcher ( ? ) scares the batters to death by his threats, and his 
enemies declare that he is addicted to the use of low-priced grape juice. Third 
and last, but not least, is John Sterling. Yes, John does belong to the Y. M. C. A. 
Not much else good can be said of him except that he has a pious look. 

They left at 11.30 one night, which was as soon as they could be found — 
it doesn't matter iclierc they were found. The "Pilot" went along, too, because 
he wanted to be sure they really attended the Conference. They traveled all 
night; thev changed cars; they tried to maroon the "Rabbi" on a train to Canada, 
but he awoke too soon. 

They arrived in time for a lecture upon the sins of youth. All went and 
enjo}ed it except Sterling, who sickened and went to bed (went swimming). For 
a whole week they attended bible classes, mission studies and sermons. They 
became very good, all exce])t "Rabbi," who flirted outrageoush- with the waitresses, 
and went home early. 

Then they "jacked up." "Whitner" found a girl on the train. "Ed" and 

John told "Snap])y Stories." Arriving in Washington, they both said D , 

went to look for "Whitner'' and found him persuading the girl to go to a dance.

AN is potent in his possibilities. In three years a "rat"' may become 
a Junior. A few events in this evolution will now be briefly 
chronicled. 

When the Class of 1917 matriculated as "rats," nobody gasped 
with amazement at the tremendous influx of intellectuality for the 
Maryland Agricultural College. The Junior Class does not pur- 
pose reprimanding any witnesses who fail to appreciate its achieve- 
ments, for such an attitude clearly indicates that purblind sensi- 
bilities preclude evil intentions. 

It is not the prerogative of a Junior to cast aspersions upon 
the judicial capacities of the Seniors, but it is the desire of the 
present Junior Class to convince their elder brethren that it is 
not an ordinary Class. If this were the only claim for distinc- 
tion, there would probably be no difference of opinion, but it is necessary to 
impress the dignified Seniors with the fact that for three years they have had 
the privilege of associating with a Class of unusual ability. 

There may be, and, probably, there are, persons who deny, at least indirectly, 
that the Junior Class possesses any unusual mental ability. As one man, we 
rise to refute this calumny. Conceding, at the outset, that certain worthy pro- 
fessors may occasionally confide to the Class that they, the Class members, are 
inordinately stupid, such a phenomenon is readily explained. The professor 
takes charge of one of his Classes, and, immediately, perceptions of the ignorance 
of his students ])our in upon him from all sides and overwhelm him. Such per- 
ceptions insiduously seep in until finally his entire nervous organism is saturated. 
By straining a simile, we can imagine that the ethereal substance, Avhich has perco- 
lated so readily into his physical nature, is gasoline. Then the Junior Class 
enters, and some unsophisticated member inadvertently provides a spark. The 
unfortunate Juniors suft'er the consequences, but, if the discriminating reader 
were to examine the professor's schedule, he would discover that a certain Class, 
the identity of which is not divulged, usually precedes the Junior Class with 
respect to the hour of recitation. Lest such an explanation may not sufliciently 
exonerate the Junior Class from all appearance of ignorance, the Historian is 
willing to hazard his reputation as a prophet on the supposition that, before this 
terrestrial sphere has completed another lap in its gamboling Marathon about

benignant Sol, those professors who have been skeptical with regard to the 
mental ability of the Junior Class, will be extolling our Class in the presence of 
our successors as a model for emulation in respect to the identical characteristics 
which have been under discussion. 

However, a discussion with regard to the intellectual ability of the junior 
Class constitutes a digression from the task assigned. Therefore we will proceed 
to consider, in a chronological manner, a few of those events which would seem 
by their very nature to be peculiarly adapted to express the individualism of 
the Jimiors. 

The opportunities of a "rat" to exert his influence, whether for good or evil, 
are usually lacking. Consequently, in accordance with the theories of the upper- 
classmen, the intellectual prodigy, which matriculated in 19L3, did not imme- 
diately advertise his talents. In commenting upon this era of Class History, we 
may sav that genius, like civilization, has its "dark ages." Yet our hero, living 
up to the standards set by his predecessors, soon emerged from the obscure 
regions which are delegated to the rodents. Having achieved distinction for 
himself, he directed his efforts to effect the enlightment of his benighted suc- 
cessor. He did not confine himself to the antiquated methods of the previous 
disciplinarians of the "rats," for his ?esthetic tastes demanded something modern. 
Therefore, green caps came into vogue among the Freshmen. 

But, although the Junior Class was entirely altruistic in its endeavors to 
educate the younger brothers of the Freshman Class, it was not so busy with 
such work as to neglect other important duties. One day, when there was a cattle- 
judging contest at Laurel, this Class participated so capably that it received sixty 
dollars out of a total amount of one hundred that was offered as prize money. 

No one would venture to write a history of the Junior Class without referring 
to athletics, and, if the writer has a fertile imagination, the thought of the con- 
sequences of such an omission engenders an irrepressible tendency to shudder. 
The magnitude of the penalties to be inflicted for a dereliction in the matter 
just referred to is the result of the inordinate relation between the size of the 
Class and its athletic achievements. 

College loyalty prevents an unwarranted laudation of the Junior athletes, 
for even the Historian may not focus the searchlight U])on the history of college- 
athletics in such a manner that the deeds of other heroes of Maryland Agricultural 
College shall be brought into obscurity. Therefore, rest assured that every 
statement to be made with reference to athletics may be verified by search in the 
athletic annals of our College. A few facts will be noted briefly.

A Junior is the Captain of the football team for the following season. The 
Junior Class has a large number of men on the varsity baseball and football 
teams. Since the Junior Class matriculated, Maryland Agricultural College has 
thrice won the State Championship in baseball and twice in football, with three 
successive defeats for St. John's in the latter. It may please the friends of the 
College to know that, in each of the achievements noted above, members of the 
Junior Class played an important part. 

There is one other event to be recorded. On the twenty-fifth of February, 
at Raleigh Hotel, gentlemen from Maryland Agricultural College accompanied 
by a galaxy of buxom beauty, staged a fete which with respect to the harmonious 
beauty effected by the various arrangements was unusually imjiressive. No mere 
man could hope to do justice to the artistic ability displayed in feminine attire. 
The eft'ect of all this beauty was enhanced by the fact that the orchestra gave a 
wonderfully creditable performance. Further zest was added to the entertainment 
by the subtle ei)igrams in the programs. Yet all this splendor had a demoralizing 
effect on many reputable Juniors, as was evidenced by their mental aberrations on 
the following day. 

Stellar ])rognostications convey the pleasing information that the Juniors 
will be even more successful in the world of business than in the college world. 
Consequently, it behooves each Junior to strive to establish a high record for 
scholarship in his final year, so that there mav really be guaranteed a greater 
measure of success in the ftitm^e.

OST unassuming of all Sophomore Classes of Maryland Agricultural 
College is the Class of 1918. Throughout this year the Class 
which is customarily associated with precosity has demonstrated 
its belief in these lines: 

"A little learning is a dangerous thing ; 
Drink deep, or taste not of the Pierian Spring.'' 

There has been no eiTort on the part of the present Sophomore 
Class to gain immortality by innovating some radical change in 
their government over new students. In decreeing that new fel- 
lows should wear green caps, we followed an example set by 
predecessors, and likely determined the perpetuation of a custom 
most appropriate for a new M. A. Caesar to observe. The Class abolished many 
of the old "rat rules," rules requiring foolish performances, rules permitting 
indignities from "old fellows," which were disgraceful to the College and all 
concerned. Only stich rules as were necessary to restrain the new boys from 
bigotry and misbehavior were adopted. 

The sole purpose of the Class' relation with the new fellows has been to aid 
and encourage them ; and we believe that the lower classmen will admit that they 
have been accorded only gentlemanly treatment from the Sophomores since they 
matriculated last fall. So lenient has the Class been in dealing with its sub- 
ordinates that criticisms have come from various sources, taunting the Sopho- 
mores for not indulging in a pernicious custom. But the Class has not fostered 
hazing in any form ; it has merely tried to do its duty. 

The old barrier of Class feelings between the Sophomore and Freshman 
Classes has been demolished. In its stead have been instituted various athletic 
and indoor contests. These contests have come to be recognized as a source of 
great rivalry and fair play. Although defeated in the Cane Rush held last autumn, 
followed by another defeat in the billiard tournament, the Sophomore Class bowed 
graciously to the result. So manifest was the good sportsmanshi]) of the Class 
that we quote the following Editorial appearing in the Maryland Agricultural 
College Weekly for February 2, 1916: 

"The spirit that is being shown by the Sophomore Class is setting an 
example of good sportsmanship that may well be followed by Maryland Agri- 
cultural College Classes of today and all time. The Freshman flag has not been 
lowered since the Cane Rush, and the Sophomores have met defeat in everv 



60 



SIS^^F^ 










interclass contest, but they l'ia\e accepted it with cheerful grins and a determina- 
tion to scrap harder the next time. They ha\e not taken advantage of their 
position as Sophomores and made it hard for the Freshmen, but have been more 
than s([uare all the vear through." 

On November 4, 1915, the history of the Class was interrupted bv a sad 
event. DeWit Hart, of Riverdale, a classmate, while journeying to College, met 
instant death when hit by a train. In respect to the deceased member, the Class, 
upon request to the Faculty, was granted a recess from studies on the after- 
noon following the tragedy. An Obituary Committee from the Class drafted 
resolutions which were forwarded to the bereaved family of Mr. Hart and ])ub- 
lished in the JVcckly. I'he Class also decided to retain the name of the departed 
member on its role until our Senior year. Besides contributing a beautiful bouquet 
of American Beauties for his obsequies, the Class attended the funeral services 
in a body. His memorv will be long cherished bv his classmates. 

The Class of F)1(S is remarkable for students of unusual faculties, intellectu- 
ally and athletically. It cottld have shown a domineering influence over the new 
fellows; it might have ]jer])etrated heinous acts under the name of a "little fun," 
which has characterized Sophomores from time immemorial. Instead its i>owers 
have been directed towards accomplishing things of permanent value. -Aside 
from the large pro rata of rejjjresentative athletes furnished by the Class, the 
scholastic work of the Class has been most gratifying to every department — 
Professor Richardson says that the English work of the Class has surpassed 
that of any preceding Sophomore Class at IVIaryland Agricultural College. 

The year has been one of concentrated experiences, not without its pleasures, 
not free from sadness. It has witnessed the welding of friendship ties, the estab- 
lishment of fellowships rivalling those of fraternalism. These various experi- 
ences form the foundation of a hopeful future. The Class gazes into the future 
and fancies the time when hazing shall be looked upon at Maryland Agricultural 
College as a relic of barbarism ; it pictures that soon this Class will go out into 
the arena of life to combat and to conquer.

You can always tell a Senior, for he's so sedatelv gowned ; 
You can always tell a Junior from the way he sports around. 

AV)U can always tell a Freshie from his timid looks and such ;

BOUT the middle of last September the upper-classmen and pro- 
fessors of the College observed a large number of new faces 
ascending the hill. These, together with the members of the pre- 
ceding Sub-Freshman Class, were to constitute the Freshman 
Class. 

As is customary in Maryland Agricultural College, we "rats" 
were several times the guests of honor at recej^tions given bv the 
Sophomore Class. We were undetermined how to take the advice 
of the solemn-faced President of the Sophomores; but we have 
since tried to be good little "rats," and I believe "Peck" will agree 
that our attempts were fairly successful. 

Since we were the largest Freshman Class in the historv of 
the College we decided to be the greatest. So, when our first 
opportunity for greatness presented itself, to wit; the annual Cane Rush, we went 
after victory with grim determination written all over us. On the memorable 
afternoon of vSeptember 25th, between the halves of the "Polly" game, we stood 
anxiously on our end of the football field, while the Sophomores waited on their 
end. At the crack of the pistol, we dashed for the cane. Chipman reached it 
first and carried it into Sophomore territory. This was but for a short time, as 
the experienced Sophomores succeeded in getting into our territory. However. 
\-ictory was finally ours when Perry grabbed the cane and bore it far into the 
"Soph's" half of the field. 

Then, in November, we again met our dear friends, the same old Sophomores, 
in an interclass contest, this time a cross country run. As the Class of 1919 
was the College's greatest Class it had to win ; so, thanks to Chipman, who won 
the event, and some other "rats," the upper-classmen found themselves again 
defeated. And "1919" still flew over the campus. 

In the annual billiard tournament, held in January, it was the same old 
story. Nothing to it but the Freshmen. J. B. Clark started things our wav in 
this event by defeating Pyle, then "Rat" Posey humbled Barrett, and finally 
"Ruby" Hart conquered Gilmour, the three "rats" bringing home the bacon to 
the total score of 306 to 201. 

This, fellow students, has been the brilliant story of the first year of the 
great and glorious Class of 1919.

He is quite a ladies man, and he often talks of the

last fall. "Brownie" is the athlete of our Class. He

We have liere "Gus," better known as "Tally's

correspondence, to a Virginia village, it would seem 
that he has other matters than scientific agriculture 
on his hands. "Gus" has many friends among the

that "Hungry" has crowned and won the hearts of

He is trying to learn enough to run his Charles Coun-

school we were afraid that the smile would vanish 
because a Denton maid forgot his College address.

Mr. McDonald was born among the rock-strewn

Hocks as they gamboled from precipice to precipice, 
the development enabling him to cling tenaciously

after was made Secretarv of that Class. In 1914. 
having changed his ideals, and his course of study 
along with them, he was elected President of our

which is so strong that it is used for greenhouse 
fumigation.

ago. When not awav on milk-testing trips, he spe- 
cializes in the girls of Washington, Hvattsville, 
Berwyn and College Park, with occasional extra trips 
to Baltimore and Richmond. Besides this. Allen

JOHN WILLIS VAN HORN 

Seattle, AVash. 

Horticulture 

In 1910 "Van" migrated from Seattle to W'estern 
Maryland, where he joined a l)and of engineers and 
immediately proceeded to scour the hills of old Ken- 
tucky. As he tramped the "Trail of the Lonesome 
Pine" he tells us that he made acquaintance with 
many magicians who possessed the power to make 
the moon shine on a stormy night. He has now hided 
his time with us and is away on his journey to 
prosperity. W'e all wish him luck.

HARRY BAUGIIER WARD 

Baltimore, >I(1. 

Agriculture 

In the fall of 1915 Ward wandered into the bounds 
of the Maryland Agricultural College, and possessing 
the desire to obtain agricultural knowledge he hon- 
ored our Class with his membership. This youth 
opens his mouth in class rooms only on the rarest 
occasions, and then only to yawn. But in spite of 
this, Corporal "H. B." possesses those excellent char- 
acteristics that will lead a man to success.

HE Two-Year Class of 1916, contrary to the usual custom of such 
organizations, does not claim to be the one bright star in the con- 
stellation of classes, the "King pin," or the favorite son of the lot. 
On the other hand, we claim to be sturdy heirs to the teachings 
of the old School ; we have learned that in service to the School, 
we best serve ourselves ; and we ho])e that in service to our fellow- 
men we may still again be bettered. 

On Thursday, September 17, 1914, we gathered as a Class 
for the first time. A most cosmopolitan crowd we were — farmers' 
sons filled to the finger tips with rugged health and a workaday 
knowledge of country life; city fellows, seeking health, or heeding 
the cry "Back to the Soil," men terribly handicapped with a lack 
of knowledge of the fundamental farm principles ; and others 
who because they had "flunked out" in classes elsewhere, "hit the toboggan for our 
midst. Then, as soon as we got started the College eliminated the "Prep" Depart- 
ment, and another landslide struck us. 

Our Class now numbered thirty-six men, but the efifectiveness of our work 
was lessened by the large percentage of fellows who had not awakened to the 
responsibility of their school work and who were not only too lazy to work 
themselves but retarded the others by disorder and inattention in class. Some- 
thing of the ability of the bona fide students of the Class can be shown by com- 
paring them with the Seniors of 1915 in our course in Poultry. 

Our Class was united with the Seniors of 1915 in this study, and in the 
final examinations at least three of our men made higher marks than any of the 
Seniors. 

At the close of our first year w^e elected officers to assume the responsibility 
of the Class for 1916. 

This year when all had returned we found that our Class, even with the addi- 
tion of one new member, was reduced to less than half its former strength. As 
those who were missing were for the most part drones anyway, their absence 
was accepted with a sigh of regret. As for the rest of us, there are but few 
indeed who have not done their bit in one way or another to foster the school's 
activities. Football, baseball, track and literary work — all claim some of us. no 
stars perhaps, but willing workers, the foundation upon which success is built.

Do you know this Eastern- 
shorman ? 

Well, I guess you do. He has 
his hat on to hide a bald spot, 
but we would mistake the fea- 
tures of no other man's mug for 
those of "Mr. Brink." 

His position is that of Super- 
intendent at the Experiment Sta- 
tion, but the reason we are here 
giving you a glimpse of his jolly 
old countenance is because of 
what he has done for athletics 
at our College. Year after year 
has Mr. Brinkley, in his quiet, 
unassuming- way, assisted in and 
often actually taken charge of 
caring for and building up our 
athletic fields. Ask the Coach 
about it, and he will tell you 
that Mr. Brinkley has always 
truly been "the man of the 
hour."

Atl]bttr0 




HE American i^eople are known the world around as a people 
bubbling over with life and enthusiasm, and within the AmericatT 
college there is gathered the cream of the younger generation of 
our land — young men full to the brim with suppressed physical 
energy and undaunted initiative. Mere books furnish no outlet 
for these sterling gifts. There must be another channel, and that 
other channel is personified in the God of Athletics. It is as 
natural for a clean-cut boy to be an athlete as it is for a rabbit 
to run, a bird to fly, a mule to kick or for water to roll off the 
proverbial duck's back. 

But, aside from this natural inclination, which alone would 
justify the support of athletics, there is another, a material side. 
Phvsical develo])ment is essential to the boy who must tight the battle with his 
hurrying, hustling, ever onward-i)Ushing American brothers. For no matter how 
high the state of mental development reached, unless there is sutiicient physical 
power to work in conjunction with the activities of the brain and produce lasting 
qualities, the individual will sufifer severe reverses in the close competition with 
which his fellow-citizens will pave his footholds down the path of life — "A corpse 
iiia\< float upon tlic ivlwc, but strength and manhood arc required to stem the 
tide." 

The parent usually has it rooted deep down in his cranium that the gridiron 
wnll bring to his boy either violent mutilation or mortal accident. He reads in 
the paper that some boy has been crippled in this sport, and that is enough to 
justify his decision. He, with a pitifullv narrow view, does not remember that 
railroad accidents, for instance, have meant death to five thousand where the 
gridiron has meant but a single broken bone. 

And then, too, how about personal pleasure? We are not here upon this 
earth as permanent fixtures, and a hundred years hence no one in the whole wide 
world will care whether you brought into your life the pleasures and joys possible, 
or whether you worked and worried to slave for some one else and pass away 
unknown. If, then, there is for your son pleasure in the companionship of 
athletics, let him be a recipient of what little happiness there may be thus 
derived, and rest in the assurance that it Avill tend to develop in him intelligence, 
honesty, and the red blood of health — those characteristics everv parent would 
fain see imbued within his bov.

EDWARD R. HINDMAN 

A year ago "Curley" Byrd said: "The greatest honor 
that can come to a college athlete is the captaincy of the foot- 
ball team. This is what has been won by Eddie Hindman by 
reason of his splendid work at tackle and fullback for the 
last three seasons and because he is the kind of fellow in whom 
others usually place their confidence." Modestly, we would 
suggest that no greater luck could possibly have come to 
"Curley" than that which arrived as a Freshman in 1912 in 
the person of old "Heiny." It is true that we lost the State 
Championship this year, but we lost it while Captain Hindman 
was in the hospital fretting away his big- heart, while his 
team-mates strove in vain to cover with one man the gap our 
"Heinv" so ably filled. 



HEINE' 



LYMAN D. OBERLIN 

"Oby" could, if he were not so modest, honestly and con- 
scientiously say that during his time served in the Aggies' line 
he has been of as much value to the team as any man on it — 
since he won't say this for himself we are saying it for him. 
Last fall Chandler Sprague, although we know he hated like 
sin to give us anything, had to give Oberlin one of the tackle 
positions on Maryland's mythical eleven — and don't you forget 
that there were some other tackles, too, within the boundaries 
of the old Monumental State in the Autumn of 1915. He has 
been selected to captain the team next year, and if he shows 
the ability to work others on the football field as he works 
himself there won't be much doubt about a successful season.

KENNETH T. KNODE 
This One Hundred and Forty-Four Pounds of Brain, our quarterback, has 
for three years guided the destinies of our teams, and twice he has brought home 
to swell his Alma Mater's pride the Championship banner of the State. Kenneth 
is leaving to enter the University of Michigan, and we understand that last fall 
when he hurled his men against Hopkins at Homewood we watched for the last 
time his strategy on the gridiron. If this be true the admirers of football have, 
indeed, something to regret. 

TALBOT SPEER 

•■Tal" dropped in on us from the Old Dominion State as a Summer School 
student, and he liked us so well that he decided to "stick around" awhile and 
see what was going on. The Editor claims that he was the most valuable man 
on Maryland's 1915 eleven, and if he wasn't, then who was? Incidentally, he is 
the cleanest ])layer that has yet played on our gridiron. Give us another halfback 
like him next fall and the victories will be "all over but the shoutin'." 

WHITNEY J. AITCHESON 

A Sub-Freshman, he fell in love with the gridiron. The next year he beat 
"Pop" Koehler, a Senior, out of his job at Center, and for his service since he 
has for four consecutive years been awarded the highest honor we could give — 
a football "M" at each Christmas dance. On the field "Whitner" has played a 
consistent game, the kind of game whose echo will resound for him down through 
the future years, when he is playing in the great, competitive game of life.

ON THE GRIDIRON 



Srattts l^t i^txB 5ftx 



M. A. C, November 27th. 
Dear Dad: 

Thanks for that check — it was a Hfe-saver. Football season was over yester- 
day, you know, and last night we broke training. Believe me. Dad, it was some 
Ijreak — we broke everything in this old town from champagne bottles to moving 
picture shows, and now this morning we ourselves are broke. 

ikit, fond parent, had you seen your fathers' son in that game yesterday, 
little things like twenty-dollar bills wouldn't worry you today. We were playing 
our old rivals, you know, and they are about as dirty a bunch of bums as ever 
took a chew of tobacco — they must be blacksmiths and bartenders, for some of 
them were as tough as mules and others nothing but great hunks of fat. 

I'll tell vou about it: The third quarter ended with no score. But lucky" 
Yc Godsl Honestly, those greasy bums have a brand of horseshoes that's worth 
something. Cigarettes and beer will out, though, you know, and in the last quarter 
we got to 'em. We kicked oiT ; their Fullback caught the ball and, by luckily 
dodging both our Ends, ran it back thirty years. Then they started that dirty line- 
plunging and made downs right up to our ten-yard line. Everybody on the sides 
was whooping like mad, and yelling at us to hold 'em — we -were holding 'em, but 
those gilded horseshoes of theirs were too much for anything human. Right 
here. Pop, is where vour voung ho])eful showed his strategy, and it happened sort 
of funny, too. When their Quarterback gave the signal to shift, instead of shift- 
ing with the rest of mv team I got left standing out on one end, with nobody to 
guard me; then their Center (cigarettes were telling on him) passed the ball wild, 
and just as I ran across it bounded right into my hands, and 1 lit out. The whole 
grandstand rose up and was howling to me to run, and when I looked back the 
smallest booze-soak in their bunch was leggin' it after me, about twenty-five yards 
behind. And don't you believe. Dad, old boy, that I didn't run. Why, when that 
little pinch of nothing tackled me I fell three-fourths of my length across their 
goal line. The ball bounced out of my hands (more of their infernal luck), hue 
one of our fellows had followed me up the field and was right there to jump on it. 
Then, before we could line up again the whistle blew ; the game was over, and 
weliad won — but never again do I want to play a team that has the luck with it 
that mob of coal-heavers carries around. 

Your diligent son, 

H. B. Derrick. 

P. S. — Can you let me have another twenty right away? You know I am a 
hero now, and I have to be a sport.

KNODE 



BOPST 



TAYLOR 



KENNETH T. KNODE 

Take off your hats, all you readers, to the most valual)le intielder in Marxland 
college circles, twice Captain of our baseball team. You probably noticed a few- 
pages back that he is a gridiron man, too, but it is on the diamond where Kenneth 
reigns supreme. He fields naturally, throws naturally, hits naturally, runs nat- 
urally, steals naturally, uses his head .s'/^/ifrnaturally, and is just "naturally" tht 
best we have to show. 

LESLIE E. BOPST 

'"Les'" undoubtedly possesses the earmarks of a baseball player, but. you 
know, the most reliable of criterions often portray nothing. Likely, baseball is 
an inherited characteristic with him, and, while it is none the less present, it lies 
in the latent rather than the dominant stage. At that, though, he has helped out 
in many a game ; and, even if he is not an in-and-out star, the practice he gets gives 
him a good appetite, and appetites are important. 

EDWIN A. TAYLOR 

With the persistence of a woman and the tenacitv of ]Mr. Brinkley's bulldog, 
Taylor has "worked" the Coach for a baseball suit four years hand-rimning. He 
is a catcher, or poses as such, and many is the time he has helped our team out by 
standing behind the plate and giving signals. Even so, he, like "Les" Bopst, gets 
the exercise of ])ractice and thus works up an ap])etite, something that Rocke- 
feller can't buv with all his millions. 



98 







Apprrrtattnn 




ELATIVE to "Individual baseball write-ups," the Editor asks that you turn 
back a page and view the sour- faced a]3]jarition who, in the role of baseball 
team manager, posed so gracefully for the photographer. Try if you can 
to conceive that he also plays any position from the initial sack around to 
the keystone corner, and each with equal facility — since all he ever does is to stand 
there. Four years he has been with us, for four years "Curley'' has given him 
a baseball suit each spring, and for four years he has proven a second Mike Levin 
as far as any \alue to the team may have been concerned. 

Comment is also due another Senior, whose picture doesn't ajjpear here in 
baseball suit for the reason that although the photographer made a dozen trips to 
locate straggling groups and individuals, on no occasion could this horse-hide 
phenomenon be caught in baseball attire. He came to us from the pride of 
Frederick County, and, what is more, he came to us as a pitcher. His catcher 
used three signals, one for a zviid ball, one for a pass ball and one for a bounce 
ball, the bounce ball being the one you have often noticed hit in front of the plate 
and bounce over. His name is Ralph McHenrv, better known at "Pat," and he is 
the lad who so ardently declaimed, "Laugh and the world laughs with \ou ; frown 
and vou wrinkle your face."

MORRIS 



AITCHESON 



GRACE 



PAUL H. MORRIS 

Who says that Charles County is slow? Look at this tall, slender chap. Does 
he look slow? About two "jiffies" after the crack of the pistol Paul attains the 
velocity of 947 feet per second. He entered College a few years after the Civil 
War and soon became a member of the track squad. He can make those legs 
fairly fly. Not only is he a runner but also something of an aerial man, holding 
medals for broad and high jumping and hurdling. When Charles County takes 
back her loyal son "Curley" will search many years for a man to fill Paul's place. 

WHITNEY J. AITCHESON 

On your marks! Get set! Crack! They are ofif. Who is that big, stately 
fellow who is gradually getting the lead? 'Tis "Doc" or "Whitner." "Aitchy" 
entered College the same year that Grace did, and the two have been performing 
wonders on the track As for the speed, "Whitner" is good, but when it comes 
to long distances he has no equal. He has the wind of a ]\Iarch hare, and once 
he starts to run there is no way to estimate the ground that he will cover ere he 
stops. He has \\on medals enough to compete with Grace in the jewelry business. 

K. GRACE 

This Dan Patch youngster has been with us some "four-odd" vears and still 
that everlasting grin is with him. Yes, the same old smile, win or lose — but, no 
wonder, he never loses! Putting all jokes aside, "Bill" is the fastest stepper Byrd 
has and is likely to .hold for several vears the track records he has made. He has 
medals, badges, ribbons, watches and cups enough to start a first-class hock shop. 
If "Curley" finds some post-graduate work in the fruit line, we must not be sur- 
prised to see "Bill" beaming forth in another year-book. 

102 




J. p. BROWN 

This pleasant and smiling- lad is "Brownie." You've all 
heard of the Brownian motilit) — well, that's he. Brown, 
although he has not heen with us as long as some of the grad- 
uating men, has done \ery creditable work. He is one of those 
that you hear little of but who is always there. He has done 
a big part in holding up the honors of this institution in both 
indoor and outside track work. His departure will leave a 
place in the track squad that it will take a good man to till.

GRACE 



* That this cut of tlie 1-Mile Relay Team is '"bob-tail," or shy a man. 
is most sincerely regretted l)y the Editor, who wishes to offer to "Tal" 
Speer the apology that unforseen circumstances made it necessary to take 
this picture while he, Speer, was away from College.

As quick as the panther when he springs to grasp his prey 
and as fleet as the deer hard pressed by hounds, yet even Paul — 
the King of Charles — cannot vanish into space at the flash of an 
electric light ; and all his agility gained him nothing when as a 
Freshman he dared to linger comfortably on a Riverdale veranda 
at three o'clock in the morning. 

Perhaps his watch had ceased to tick and fooled hirn, or ])er- 
haps the moonlight, a pair of liquid eyes, soft wisps of silken 
tresses fluttering against the breeze and a nestling form close to — 
but let us on wnth the story. 

Lo ! The electric light flashed on. A human monster tow- 
ered o'er our hero, and in words of another world it spake : 
"Young man, have you a home?" 
"Yes'r," stammered Paul. 
"Then go there." 
"Yes'r," was the weak res]jonse. 
"And stay there." 

"Yes'r," came a feeble echo from the distant Pike. 
And Paul has not been back.

AT THE CONSERVATORY 




AROUiND THE HORTICULTURAL DEPARTMENT 



Jaunrto ^^frnfa 



To start the list comes "Aitchy," tall, who loves his dear "Doc Alac ;" 
Then follows Bains, right down the hall, and Ruffner gets a crack. 
The next is Bopst, with curley hair; to him dear Schultz is nice; 
John Bowling is the one so fair — he says: "Let "Mike" suffice." 

"Jim"' Bradley comes a-stepping up to tell us Broughton's place. 
While "Brock" says that he'll give the cup to "Boohoo" Spence's face. 
On comes the solemn Burlingame, and "Annie" is his pick ; 
Old Stanley Day's the next in name — 'tis "Pack-up" make him sick. 

Mike Erdman really beats the lot, with love for Brother W'aite, 
And Ford's the guy who makes things hot when "Bommy" comes in late. 
To Griffin they are all the same, with "Catfish" for a choice; 

"Bill" Grace, of course, comes next by name, and he likes "Becky's" voice. 

Then there's "Gige" Gray (and red his crown) to tell us of "Doc Tolly;" 
Old Hindman is the next one down, and cusses Creese's folly. 
Now E. G. Knatz must have a turn to tell what "C. P.'s" done. 
And Kenneth K. cares not a durn for 'Fessor Richardson. 

Big "Ferdy" Lodge was just too late to show his love for "Commy," 
While "Pat" McHenry tells his hate for poor, old "Baldy Bommy." 
McKenna (one more studying man) still swears at little Springer, 
And "Reds" McLean cares not a darn for Stoddard as a singer. 

Then Paul H. Morris has the luck to tell of Creese, his friend (?), 
And "Duke,"' with good-old-fashioned pluck, says, "Spence, unto the end!" 
Next comes one Sando, holy terror, who makes "Jum" Dennis swear, 
\Miile "Kerchie" Smith, who has no error, stuffs "Becky" full of air. 

A dummy, Smoot, is next in rhyme, and he, too, loves his "Beck;" 
John Sterling says, "Just for a dime I'd love them all, by Heck!" 
Fred Steinmetz speaks of Creese, his friend, and we agree with him ; 
Yet "Sunny" swears that to the end "Henry T" the cream will skim. 

"Fats" Taylor is the next on roll, and "Bommy's" won his heart ; 

"Jim" Towles claims that he's found no hole in Stanton from the start. 

"Bob" \Miite, the next to last on list, says Cory gets his goat — 

And Wilson cries, "Th' whole blamed bunch ain't worth my last year's coat.'' 

Bob White.

y^l PilS organization numbers only twenty-two members, but it harbors some 
V-/ of the leading lights of the College. By glancing at the roll it will be noted 
^^ that the New Mercer is a very cosmoi)olitan society, including budding 
orators, experienced debaters, old and new Editors-in-Chief of both The 
Reveille and the Weekly, stars of the football, baseball and track teams, fra- 
ternity leaders, cadet officers, grangers and representative men from each College 
Class. The society meets bi-monthly in its room in Calvert Hall, the meetings 
usually being open to visitors. 

It is a well-known fact that very few scientific men are able to deliver an 
effective speech upon their special subjects. Yet. there is nothing of greater 
importance to the educated man than the ability to speak with facilitv in public. 
With these points in mind the New Mercer members have gi\en during the year 
a series of short, informal talks upon semi-scientihc subjects. These speeches 
were not memorized, but were delivered from brief notes. At the close of the 
talk the s])eaker was expected to be able to answer reasonable questions from 
the other members. 

The honorary members have also favored the societv with excellent talks. 
Altogether the society feels that it has held a successful year and looks forward 
with confidence to the future.

^i^^HE literary society which had Ijeen known as the Morrill Literary Society 
vl/ was reorganized under the name of the Poe Literary Society on November 
^ 3rd, 1915. ... 

Excepting a few instances, meetings have been held regularlv on 
Wednesday evenings in the Section E society room of Calvert Hall. These meet- 
ings have been productive of debates, addresses, readings, recitations and other 
phases of literary work. Among the miscellaneous lectures presented was a 
series on Parliamentary Law by Professor Richardson. As all of the students 
were invited to attend these lectures given bv Professor Richardson, manv availed 
themselves of that opportunity and thereby became benefited. 

In accordance with a suggestion from the Faculty Committee on Student 
Organizations, the membership of the society has been restricted to twenty stu- 
dents. As a result, the standard of the society was raised. Instead of seeking 
students for members as in former years, they now seek us. In choosing the most 
desirable, the applicant's interest in, and willingness to work for, the societv was 
considered more important than the boost of the indolent literate. 

What has been accomplished this year of a more permanent nature is the 
laying of a strong foundation for literary activity in succeeding years. As the 
societv room has been furnished for the expressed purpose of literary pursuits, 
and with the strong beginning made in 1915, the Poe Literary Society should 
look forward to a still more successful year in 1916-'17.

T is often said that the press is the mouthpiece of the people. The 
IVecklv is the mouth])iece of the students of Maryland Agricultural 
College. 

Its columns are impartial word-jjictures of the activities, 
thoughts, and life of our College, news-pictures of past, present 
and future happenings and those things that shuitid hai)pen. 

The Weekly was founded Octoher 15, l'J14, its hirth heing 
due to the fact that the Triangle, a hi-monthly, had proven inade- 
quate for the needs of an expanding college and a rapidly enlarg- 
ing student body. While a well-edited paper, the Triangle had 
always been more or less unsatisfactory because its news was 
necessarily "stale"' to the student body. 

The IVeekly was a success from the start. Its editorial board 
was composed of earnest, industrious men, who were interested in the welfare 
of the organ. The news came out promptly, with always a goodly percentage 
of articles pertaining to the future. The student body and Faculty gave the 
paper their support, and it has ])rospered. 

From time to time our paper has seen the addition of new departments and 
the casting aside of old. Besides everyday news articles there is a well conducted 
Editorial page, "Notes and Queries,"' Departmental Column and Alumni page. 

The paper is published entirely by the students, under the censorship of 
the English Department. The editors are elected by the various classes, except 
the Editor-in-Chief, who is elected by the Board, composed of the Staff and 
Facultv Committee, for the following year. 

It is planned to enlarge the Weekly in the near future and also to merge it 
into a daily as soon as the student body is large enough to support a daily sheet. 
There is also a movement on foot to add a magazine, to be issued monthly, to the 
Hst of student publications. The magazine would be devoted largely to the inter- 
ests of the Alumni Association and would fill the long-felt want of such a publi- 
cation. 

The Weekly stands for better scholarship, stronger athletics, and a greater 
IMarvland Agricultural College. It knocks only when boosting fails. It may 
be called a radical publication, for its motto is "Progress."' It is a medium of 
expression for student to student. Faculty to student, and student to Faculty. 
Our paper believes that the best is not enough for each man to give to himself 
and to his College, for even the best may be made better. 
A\'hat more would vou have?

^%^ OjME one has said that kissine is the art of extracting honev from 
tuHps, and protecting the same against frost by careful massage 
and frequent watering. ^Mathematically speaking, a kiss may be 
defined as nothing divided by two. Experimentation and observa- 
tion have proven conclusively that at least two individuals are 
necessary in order to make kissing eiTective and desirable. How- 
ever, an audience is not necessary, as it merely serves to neutralize 
the intrinsic charm involved in the process. There seems to be 
no standard hour adopted as the correct time for kissing; some 
have suggested 11.13 P. "SI., while others prefer a later hour. 
Kissing is practiced in all parts of the sphere, but the best results 
have been obtained in canoes, on back-stairs, unlighted verandas 
and moonlight strolls. The best locality, however, is usually found 
to be the mouth. If this spot is selected and adhered to. the reward is inevitable. 
The procedure is very simple, }et there are certain fundamentals to be kept 
in mind, viz. : 

Choose the victim to be caressed. 
Establish co-operation if possible. 
Create a cheerful atmosphere. 

Discard from habitat all rolling pins and flat irons. 
5. Retreat promptly when necessary. 
A few hints at this time to the lady involved may be advisable. If you are 
ever subjected to the above environment it may be to your interest to proceed 
as follows: First call for father if you are sure he is away. Then call for 
mother if you are certain she will not respond. When these summons' have 
failed whisper softly and gently in your partner's ear, "How dare you do such 
an heroic act!" An encore will surely follow if your said part is properly per- 
formed. 

The suggestions applicable to the gentleman are few but important. Before 
kissing certain individuals it is at times mandatory that exit observations be 
taken in order to avoid any possible embarrassment from delayed departure. 

The reason so many fail when it comes to kissing may be attributed to the 
fact that they have not given the matter due consideration. Onlv a vague idea of 
the science is comprehended by one or both individuals involved. Is it any 
wonder that so many people are troubled with fistula of the eye, absence of 
teeth, or postponement of marriage? It is hoped that in the near future the 
science of kissing will have become an art. When this is accomplished these 
prevalent mysteries, secrets, and marriage postponements will vanish like the 
Ford behind an automobile.

HEN this Commencement drill is over and the last note of the 
bugle is lost with its echo over this dear old hill, the last vestige of 
^larvland Agricultural College as a purely military college will 
be but a memory in the hearts of those Senior othcers who are 
taking command in the great competitive drill of life. 

For half a century the boys who marched under old Mary- 
land's flag were soldiers from ■■Re\eille" at the break of day to 
"Taps" late at night. Four whole years each one of them li\-ed his 
life in time with the trumpet call, the sharp command, and that 
old spirit of "snap" and "vim" for which our College is famous. 
Four years ago the barracks, that building which constituted 
the College when the fathers of the present generation were stu- 
dents, was wiped away by fire. A new College, with new buildings 
rose in its place, and the dream of a greater Maryland Agricultural College came 
true. At first there was a movement on foot to eliminate entirely all military 
training, but the final decision was to devote one hour a day to "Science and 
Tactics." It was a great drop, from twenty-four hours to one hour per day. 
Friends of the College predicted dire results, but the change in reality was much, 
slower than in theory. The influence of strong militarism was slow to pass away. 
The student of today is not essentially diflferent from the student of 
"Before the fire." While his codes and customs are perhaps dift'erent he has 
the same spirit deep down in his heart. He is an "]\I. A. Caesar" in every sense 
of the word. He is as good a soldier and student, as he would have been under 
the old regime. He has simply changed with his College. In practice, the same 
amount of time is spent in drill and the theoretical study of military science ; 
the dift'erence comes in government and discipline. Today military science is 
a part of the curriculum, a part of the College life, instead of the whole of 
College and College life. 

That military training does much for the college man no one may doubt. 
It gives him method, self-reliance, physique and acuteness and quickness of 
thought. The call of the age is for the man who is able to pick and command 
men and himself. 

^Maryland Agricultural College owes much to the men who founded the 
Alorril Act. "Uncle Sam's" training has made her sons stronger and more cap- 
able. And should their country need them they would each and everv one 
gladly march forth and defend her even as they defend their Alma ^Mater, her 
honor and her name.

So softly at the evening's close, 

Along this dim, gray hall, 
To tell us that our day is done, 

Comes Tattoo's clear-cut call. 

Ah ! Welcome is her ringing note 
Now, when the day has passed, 

For cares and worries all we know 
Are furled up in her blast. 

The years we've harked that bugle-call 

But yesterday marked four ; 
Today that call is a silent call — 

She speaks to us no more. 

Not always were our tasks well done 

When Tattoo brought repose. 
But well she served to teach the truth 

That each day has its close. 

She's taught us that if we would win 

Each hour must do its best, 
For each hour speeds that final night 

Whence comes eternal rest. 

We thank her, now, and pray our God 
That the lesson which she gave 

May bear for each a life well done 
When gray hairs seek the grave. 

— The Bdito)

A Miss is as good as her smile. 

She — You have made a great impression upon me. 

Paul M — I'm so sorry — I'll not hold you so tight the next time. 

Taylor (after telling a joke) — Do you see the point? 

She — If it's what I think it is, I don't, and you're no gentleman. 

Brockwell (at ball game) — That's Knode over there; in a few weeks he'll be our 

best man 
She — Oh, William, this is so sudden. 

A man's best friend, they say, is a full pocket-book. An empty one is the most 
constant friend, because while others may grow cold he will find no change 
in his purse. 

Bains — Did you ever go gunning? 

P^rdman — No. 

Bains — Then you don't know what you've missed. 

From Sophomore to Pa — Roses are red, violets are blue, send me ten bones, 

then I'll owe you. 
From Pa to Soph. — Roses are red, carnations are pink, the enclosed ten bones, 

you'll find I don't think. 

Sophomore — Why are you taking that History again this year? 
Junior — Because, you see. History repeats itself. 

Knatz — If you look at a marble what will it do? 
Day — Look round. 

McKenna (in his farewell speech). — Classmates, if we must part, let us go 
together. 

Little beams of moonshine, 

Little hugs and kisses, 
Alake a little maiden 

Change her name to Mrs.

Aitcheson — Dear, it's l)een a long, hard race, but we're reaching the goal at 

last, aren't we? 
She — Yes, and you don't know how glad I am to be on my last lap. 

Knode (in chapel after a piano selection) — Well, Charlie, what do you think 

of his execution? 
Sando — I'm in favor of it. 

A newly captured horse thief, 

Dangling from a tree. 
In a hoarse whisper muttered, 
"This sus]Knse is killing me." 

Willie — Say, father, what does college-bred mean? 

Pa — To many fellows, my son, college-bred means a four year's loaf. 

Freshman — What is that animal doing there? 

Senior — Oh, that's a razor-back hog stro])ping himself. 

Dr. Griffith (observing a stone mason at work) — My man, the trowel covers a 

good many mistakes, doesn't it? 
Stone Alason — Yes, and so does the spade. 

Towles — jMac, I'm going to cjuit smoking. 

jMcHenry — You haven't the wall power, Jim. 

Towles — Haven't I? Well, I've quit four times already this week. 

I wisht I w'as a little rock 

Asettin' on a hill, 
An' doin' nothin' all the day 

But jest asettin' still. 

I wouldn't eat, I wouldn't drink, 

I wouldn't even wash. 
But set and set a thousand years 

An' rest myself, by Ciosh ! 

She — All extremely bright men are conceited, anyway. 
Stmstone — Oh, I don't know; I'm not.

"Does he?" echoed Mabel from the darkness below, "Well, I should sav he docs." 



"P'urious," says Smith, denotes a girl's pleasure on being kissed.

AS FOUND ON A HOLIDAY 














Freshman — It's very kind of you to dance the hesitation with me — me, the worst 
dancer in the room. ( Here he trod on her foot for the ninth time, and she 
answered sweetly), 

"Why, how can you say so? Your feet hardly seem to touch the floor." 

McKenna — Did you know a man could get drunk on water? 
Stifif — Impossible, you can't get drunk on water. 

McKenna — Don't fool yourself; you can get drunk on water just as well as 
on land. 

Baby — Wow, wow, wow, wow ! 

McHenrA- (in 1920) — Four bawls and I walk. 

Freshman (writing home) — How do you spell financially? 
Roommate — F-i-n-a-n-c-i-a-1-l-y, and there are two r's in emjjarrassed. 

CURRENT EVENTS FROM THE "CHARLES COUNTY ECHO" 

Captain Morris went out to Toadstool Hill yesterday and gathered a nice mess 
of mushrooms. The services will be very simple — no flowers. 

Read the ECHO and forget your other troubles. 

Professor Watson while harnessing his oxen last week was kicked just south 
of the corncrib. 

Rev. Reisinger will preach Sunday on, "Hell, its location and absolute certainty." 

Squire Posey will sing, Tell mother I'll be there accompanied by Air. Frere. 

Postmaster P. E. Clark was playing with a kitten last Friday when it scratched 
him on the veranda. 

Mary — William means good; James means beloved; I wonder (blushing) what 

George means ? 
Mother — W^ell, daughter, let's hope that George means business. 

Lives of Seniors all remind us 

That they strive to do their best, 
And departing leave behind them 

Notebooks that may help the rest. 

Senior to Rat — What do you get for sweeping that room? 
Rat— Nothing if I do, but hell if I don't.

Professor — That is about as clear as mud. ^ ,;v 

Grace — Well, Annie, doesn't it cover the ground? 

Professor Dennis — To what division of living matter do bacteria belong? 
White — I think that is one of the questions that is baffling science, isn't it? 
Dennis — It seems to be baffling the science of this class, all right. 

She — Plow will this look — with evergreens o\er holly? 

K. Smith — All right, but I'd rather see mistletoe over yew. 

McLean — What is that bump on vour head, Jim? 
Towles — Oh, that's where a thought struck me. 

Professor — What do you expect to be when you graduate? 
Pywell — A grandfather. 

Professor (explaining a problem) — Now, just look at the board and PU run 
through it quickly. 

Visitor — Does your dog get anv exercise? 
Brockwell — Yes, he goes for a tramp every day. 

The Freshman stood on the burning deck, 

And so far as we can learn 
He stood right there without a fear — 

He was too sffeen to burn.

OUR NATIONS CAPITOL

iHtnia 



^w^ E take this opportunity to thank Professor B. W. Anspon and 
\\J Professor R. H. Waite for their courtesy in furnishing us v/ith 
§^|^ the many beautiful photos of local scenery which appear 
^^^^ throughout our book. And to the G. V. Buck Studio we 
wish also to extend our thanks for their generous services. 

With this, the nineteenth volume of The Reveille, the Mary- 
land Agricultural College disappears, and in her stead you shall hear 
of the Maryland State College. 

Perhaps it may be a foolish fancy, but to my classmates and 
myself the letters "M. A. C." carry with them an indescribable picture 
of four long but happy years that will never arise in quite so vivid an 
image when in future years we may turn through the leaves of another 
Reveille and chance upon the letters "M. S. C." We know, though, 
that it is for the sake of a greater Alma Mater this change has come to 
pass, and we shall ever strive to keep our loyalty abreast the scythe 
of time. 

Withal, we are proud to be the members of the last class to be 
graduated from old M. A. C, and it is our earnest hope that with the 
beginning of this new era in our Alma Mater's history her progress up 
the ladder of fame will satisfy even the most optimistic of her many 
ardent admirers. 

It may be customary for each departing ReveiLLE to offer a few 
modestly expressed criticisms, but we must refrain, for now that the 
hour has come when we go away from her we think on our old school 
in a manner best pictured by these words of Keats: 

"None but the Master shall praise her; none by the Master 
shall blame." — The EditoR.

HE good ship "1916" si:)read her sails on June 15th, 1915, 
and journeyed favorably until September 14th of the same 
year. On this day she encountered inclement weather and 
was driven to port. Here at Port Calvert, she became ice- 
bound, and was compelled to remain until Spring and warm 
weather. While at port the happenings of each day were re- 
corded ; thereby, this chronicle is written. Take it for what it is 
worth, my friend. 

Sept. 14. — Proctors and some new students arrive. ^Many long and sad 
faces floating o'er the campus. Little ones still carrying mamma's apron 
strings. 

Sei)t. 15. — Fellows still coming in. More "exams." Proctors decide 
to allow no smoking, swearing or visiting in Calvert Hall. McKenna says 
he'll wait until New Year for such fool resolutions. 

Sept. 16. — "Exams.'' over. General question, "Who's to be 'Commy?' " 
All students meet in Chapel to get class cards. "Pat" and "Boohoo" 
preach on good behavior. Eddie Taylor and "Whitner" rave at first 
Y. ]\I. C. A. meeting. 

Sept. 17. — Get l)ooks. Oh, Gee ! Study again. "Johnny" liowling, 
mess-hall Chief, late for first class in afternoon, and says, "Ask Lizzie 
(the matron) the reason."" Large footl^all squad practicing. 

Sept. 19. — Saturday and some homesick crew. Most fellows go to 
town to spend their surplus money. First hot water on, and even 
Beavers gets the "bug"" and washes ofl:' some of last summer"s real 
estate. 

Sept. 20. — All Seniors know their Economics. Companies are 
organized. Where is the "Kaiser?"' "Soph" class meeting. "Shorty" 
Kann seen whittling out paddle. Rats, l:)ew^are ! Look pleasant and 
do not swear.

Sept. 21.— Drill! Drill! Drill! Cold— whew ! All the fellows

him. "Sophs," watch your step, ^^'ater bags begin to sail 

gept. 22. — First band practice ; some fuss. Pleasing rumor — 
•' 'Commy' put under arrest" — too good to be true. "Sophs" entertain 
the •'rats," or vice sersa, •"Perce" reading the rules. What was Rule

Sept. 23. — "'Rabbi" Darrow welcomed home again. Papa ? ? ? 1 ? 
Dense fumes appear in vicinity of '"Les" Bopst's room. He must 
have been swiping Smokehouse apples. Y. M. C. A. meeting at which

Sept. 24. — Yell practice. Sounds like two cats on a board fence 
hotly debating the right of way. Practice dancing, or better, have 
exhibitions of "Charles County Glide," "Eastern Sho' Dip" and the 
"Mountain Goat Hop." 

Sept. 25.— First football game: INI. A. C, 31: Poly, 0. Freshmen 
win the Cane Rush — some fight. "Ripped, torn or rotted, one perfectly 
good white shirt formerly belonging to Mr. Perrie." "Found — One 
foot in 'Plutuvious' Horn's mouth ; owner will for God's sake rennive." 

Sept. 2(^. — Sunday. Berwyn gets largest church attendance — more 
girls go there. No "chicken" on the pike, though the weather is fine. 

Sept. 27. — Everybody sleepy at Economics. A real volcano spurts 
forth in "Lab:" ceiling looks like it has smallpox. Freshmen class 
meeting — lookout, "Sophs." 

Sept. 28. — "Bommy" mistakes Paul Morris for "Dope"' Roberts. 
"Becky" preaches on the marvelous affinity of the boys and his apples. 
"Pat" announces a holiday tomorrow — much applause, you bet! 

Sept. 29. — Punch goes to G. A. R. parade, and e\erybody ( ?) sober. 
"K" Smith and "Ferdy" Lodge pick up two "skirts :" must be going 
to rain: watch weather for a couple of days. 

Sept. 30. — The day after the night before. All the fellows know 
more than they do on Mondays. Paul Morris misses the first two 
classes. Y. M. C. A. meeting: so look out, Mr. Pill Dollars. 

Oct. 1. — Rain! Rain! Rain! No wonder, remember what ha])- 
pened on 29th ultimo. "Whiskey Bill" Hellman returns. "Johnny"

"Lizzie."

ing to teaching a certain person of the fair sex how to play the \'iolin. 
The Edittjr is after my notes, so have to make them short. 

Jan. 8. — Seniors go into Buck's and have pictures taken for the 
book. No accidents. 

Jan. 9. — Sunday, and the rats find that by going to church they 
not only save their souls but the seats of their trousers as well. 

Jan. 10. — Everything goes fine in the morning. The hot after- 
noon must have made some of the boys irritable. They carry ill feel- 
ings to the first big Senior Class meeting, where orators boil, fume, 
spout and explode — good-bye, Air. Alilitary. 

Jan. 11. — Domestic Science course begins, and many chickens 
(age between ten and two hundred years) are trying to learn how 
to make tough gravy tender. Some men marry money, and some 
work for it; politics obey the same rule. Hon. J. D. Bowling says he's 
going to be a politician; which method will he take? 

Jan. 12. — "Bommy"' disi)oses of the usual Wednesday Chapel 
hour by telling us how we think, and most of the boys enjoy an after 
dinner naj). Some one tried to test the leaking power of Sando's hat. 
Beware ! The experimenter must die. 

Jan. 13. — Rev. Warden gives a talk in Chapel, and after telling 
us he did not know what to say he said, "Darrow told me to talk about 
three minutes." Burlingame asks Prof. Anspon if one can get a rub- 
ber I)all l:)y crossing a mock orange with a rul)ber j)lant. 

Jan. 14. — Ford distributes some of the Senior's proofs, and Erd- 
man is the only man not satisfied. "Charles S.'" asks a Freshman for an 
example of figuratively si)eaking, and gets this : 
"AIcKenna was a chap be 9, 

The kind that men call superfine ; 

He was the sort that girls adore. 

Or have appeared to hereto 4. 

We deal in figures — never mind, 

AIcKenna was the proper kind ; 

He was, in fact, we wish to state, 

The sort of man to emul 8. 

Jan. 15. — Editor's note: Bob has left this date blank in his records, 
and, after the above entry, 1 don't wonder. I appreciate your weariness, 
Bob, and won't bother you.

never wants to change. 

It is when she has to use an ordinary type-

preciates the difference. The noise is a shock 
and she wonders how she ever got along with it 
before. She is anxious to return to her "Silent

This wonderful machine has all the conven- 
iences needed, including variable line spacer and 
decimal tabulator ; is ball bearing throughout and

Jan. 16. — One still, quiet Sunday. Gammi Pi entertains. "Itchy" 
goes down in the Park and of course the reason is evident. The "Night 
Owl" comes in to find it snowing. 

Jan. 17. — Meeting of the New fiercer Society, and eats are a dom- 
inant feature. Sunstone and Hindman have a fight while on a pole ]nit- 
ting up wires. Both change their nationality on descending — "Sunny" 
comes down a-Russian, and "Heine" a Pole. 

Jan. 18. — Professor Broughton, trying to get a list of the most difficult 
quantitive determinations, receives the following answers from the Junior 
"Ag" section : Tin in gelatin ; dye in henzensulphonedibromamide ; lead in 
lead-pencil ; ozone in maltos ozone. 

Jan. 19. — Professor Richardson gives a talk at Chapel period. 
Fellows begins program for Rossbourg and Prom. 

Griffin — I want my hair cut. 

Barber — Any special way? 

Griffin — Yes, off. 

[Editor's note. — Now, "Bob," you know that's a lie, for "Stiff" never 
has had a hair-cut.] 

Jan. 20. — "Mac" tells of his last night's experience, and it sounds 
more like a lamp than a love aft'air. He went to see his girl. She called 
him her shining light ; they talked awhile and then suddenly she turned 
him down; she called her brother to put him out, because "Mac" was 
so wick-ed ; to show them he was game, "Mac" went out smoking. 

Jan. 21. — "Doc" Tolly asks the boys to be good to the new 
"Commy." Rossbourg dance, and all of the inexperienced Juniors get in 
trim for the Prom. Some show. Plenty of eats and every one has good 
time. 

Jan. 22. — Y. M. C. reception. Darrow serves doughnuts and cider; 
cider had been watered. 

Mr. Corncracker — Professor, whv do vou paint the inside of your 
henhouse ? 

Prof. Waite — To prevent the hens from picking the grain out of the 
wood. 

Jan. 23. — Dr. Aitcheson has many visitors. The Y. M. C. A. mem- 
bers find that the hole in a doughnut is better than the dough. Some of 
the fellows are still drunk from the vinejarv cider.

SLUMNUS M. A. C. IS75 









Jan. 24. — The best day in the year. Why? Our highest ideals are 
fultilled and our only great ambition is materialized. In short, we have 
a "Commy." Kercheval is hrst to win his love. Everything, even "Reds" 
McLean, dons a uniform and appears on the campus. 

Jan. 2h. — Eyes, ears and mouths are still open with awe. The 
new "Commy" takes us out and drills us himself. Some hot work. 
Senior Bacteriology Section swipes all the show apples from the lecture 
room, and Beckenstrater raves. 

Jan. 26. — Paul Alorris, while leaning back in his chair absorbing 
economics ( ?) and enjoying a nice nap, suddenly finds himself on the 
floor. All thought it a joke — all except Paul. 

Jan. 27. — Senior Class meeting at Economic period. Speakers for 
Commencement are elected. Charles Sando went to town last night and 
lack of sleep puts him in a good humor ( ? ). Spring fever and "Commy" 
are the main objects of gossip. 

Jan. 2tS. — The Sanitary Seven Senior Section all agree to raise a 
mustache. 

Air. Ruffner — Clements, why does Missouri stand at the head in 
raising mules? 

Clements — Because that's the onlv safe place for him to stand if he's 
around a mule. 

fan. 29. — Water bags again begin to sail. Some blow into Shultz's 
window and moisten his collar. The throwers are caught, so beware, the 
rest of you. Something is going to hap]:)en. 

Jan. 30 — "Rabbi" Darrow tries to imitate Billy Sunday. He says: "I 
want educational reform, I want social reform, I want religious reform, 
I want Bible Study reform, I want " 

Bored voice in audience: "Chloroform.'" 

Jan. 31. — "Boohoo" gives his annual talk about the rigid Discipline 
Committee. Three or four felknvs are susi)ended for shooting water 
bags. Cheer up, boys ; its been the same since about the Class of '92. 

Feb. 1. — Chipman does not take over-meticulous precautions with his 
hydrogen generator, and he has an explosion. The man part ran out the 
door, and, believe me, the chips flew. Seniors file subjects for theses. 

Feb. 2. — Groundhog day, and as the sun does not shine Eddie Taylor 
shows hiiuself. 

vStienmetz, leaving boarding house — Freddy, aren't you going to kiss 
me goodbye this morning? 

Fred — No, dear, I'll waive the privilege.

Feb. 4. — Y. M. C. A. tries to drum up enough money to have a show to

come, but am afraid I may be sick that night."

The Teacher Sees 
What Dorothy Loves 

"Oh, Goody!" Bobbie says, "She loves 

\^^f^ Gee ! I wonder who she loves. " 

He'd know "who" if he could see, as the teacher does, 
the other side of the slate, where mischievous Dorothy has 
put, in her best capitals, the word 



Jeu-0 



What Dorothy wrote was, "I love Jell-O," and Bobbie couldn't 
object to that, for probably he likes Jell-O himself more than he 
loves any girl. 

All children love Jell-O, and as it is one of those good things to 
eat that seem to agree with everybody, it is given to them very freely 
by thoughtful parents. 

It can be made in a minute, with the utmost ease, and at a cost 
of ten cents, into desserts of the most exquisite delicacy and beauty. 

It is put up in seven pure fruit flavors : Strawberry, Raspberry, 
Lemon, Orange, Cherry, Peach, Chocolate. Each in a separate 
package, 10 cents at grocers' or any general store. 

A beautiful new Jell-O book tells of a young bride's housekeeping 
experiences. It has splendid pictures in colors and will interest every 
woman. It will be sent to you free if you wrill send us your name and address. 

THE GENESEE PURE FOOD CO., Le Roy, N. Y., and Bridgeburg, Ont. 

The name jEi.L-0 is on every package in big red letters. Be sure 
you get JEI.I.-0 and not something else.
