CALVERT HALL 



Pholo hy Anspo 



Our restless ships at anchor ride ; 
But why do we that ardor hide 
With which we have in years now past 
Wished each succeeding day the last? 

Old Time his course has fully rounded, 
The bugle's blast but late has sounded. 
Dear comrades, friends, tho' we must part. 
Let joy, not sadness, fill each heart. 

'Tis our Maryland's spirit that fills. 
It is undying love that thrills ; 
"Tis hard, indeed, to suppress a sigh 
And hide the tear-drop in the eye. 

With hope the unknown future beams, 
Our youthful hopes are not mere dreams ; 
Our motto doth our life o'ercasc — 
"Our Maryland first, our Maryland last." 

But now the old things pass away, 
Class follows class as night the day ; 
We can not linger, but must sail 
To weather life's tempestuous gale. 






Our moorings we asunder cast. 

The call of Time, insistent, fast. 

Bids us to hasten on our way 

Ere breaks the dawn of life's New Day. 

This i)arting gift we leave behind, 
Our friends and comrades to remind 
Of days we s])ent at good old State — 
Your judgment will decide its fate. 

But easier 'tis to criticize 
Than to suggest improvements wise. 
You are the judge — you make the test; 
I)Ut friends, remember, 'tis our best. 



i^ O our instructor and friend, Professor 
^M£fl Snowell C Dennis, vJno has worked 
untiringly) in tne interest of a greater Alma 
Mater, we, the Class of Nineteen Seven- 
teen, dedicate tKis volume.

KRHAI'S in the dedication of the Rfakille, the last and most 
important mark of recognition that the Senior Class of the 
Maryland State C(jllege can conxey, it will be well to say a 
few words of the man ii])on whom this tfjken of ap])reciation 
is bestowed. 

Showed C. Dennis was born at Ocean City, Md., November 
0, t8()i, and receixed his early educati<jn in the ])ublic schools 
of that i)lace. In k/)/ he matriculated at what was then the 
Maryland Agricultural College, receiving his degree of Bachekjr of Science in 
Chemistry in the s])r!ng of H)\2. l"'r(jm college Mr. Dennis entered the employ 
of the PennsyKania Railroad as a chemist. 

In 1913 he acce])ted a position as a chemist with the Southern Railroad, 
where he was employed until Se])tember, 1914, when he was a])])ointed instructor 
in organic chemistry and bacteriolog\- at the Maryland State College. During 
this time Mr. Dennis carried on graduate work at the tieorge Washington 
University, recei\ing his degree of Master of Science in Bacteriology in the 
spring of 1915, and is now ])ursuing graduate studies for a doctor's degree. 

It is useless to dwell at an}- length upon the personality and ability of Mr. 
Dennis, for the opinion of the Class of 1917 is registered in the dedication of 
this issue. However, as professor of one of the most difficult of collegiate 
branches Mr. Dennis has pro\ed himself to be a most capable instructor, and has 
won the friendship of all those with whom he has come in contact by his agree- 
able personality and interest in their student welfare. The Class of 1917 takes 
pleasure in dedicating its last word to Showell C. Dennis, a ]M-ofessor of the 
highest type, a gentleman in everv sense of the word and a man among men.

Sr. Strljarii William g-ilupatn* 

Bj) Thomas H. Spence 




()RN near Norfolk, September i6, 1857, the son of ,'i Virginia 
planter and grandson of a Virginia physician, Dr. Silvester 
entered the Virginia Aiilitary Institute in September, 1873, 
whence he was graduated with honors in 1877. Having come 
to Maryland after graduation as instructor in mathematics 
and commandant of cadets at the Charlotte Hall Military 
Academy, he was elected principal of this school in 1885. 

In 1888 Dr. Silvester married Miss Lucy Lee Bowen of 
Prince (ieorge's county, Maryland. The latter survives him, with two children — 
Dr. Richard Lee Silvester of Baltimore and Miss Virginia Lyndsay Silvester 
of Prince George's countv. 

In 1892 the Board of Trustees of the Maryland Agricultural College 
selected Dr. Silvester as. President of the College. In June of 1907 there was 
conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Laws by Washington College. 
On December ist, 191 2, on account of a serious physical breakdown, he resigned 
the presidency of the College, and in recognition of his distinguished services 
was made President Emeritus. 

On the 31st dav of December, 1916, the subject of this sketch jia^sed from 
this life. 

The honor of writing the biography of Dr. Silvester for the 1900 Revf.ille 
came to the writer, and it is an honor nov.' to utter these few words by way of 
obituary. 

Twenty full years of toil, persistence, ])atience and self-sacritice, all to 
transform neglected farms into productive homesteads — that was Dr. l^ilvester's 
self-imposed task, and that was his complete achievement. 

Never was he thwarted by criticism and discouragement. His optimism 
made obstacles melt away like frost before the morning sun, and the sunshine 
from his own heart warmed and enthused his faculty to unwonted zeal and 
loyalty. 

Few of the Maryland State bo}'s of T917 can recall Dr. Silvester, but nearlv 
3000 of the "old boys" will never forget their "good old Captain," for his work 
with them and for them was the greatest element in their develoi)ment into men. 
His fireside was a haven for all. No one, from ranking professor to lowly 
prep, ever left his threshold without being inspired by his goodness and help. 
The community was better for his participation in public council, and the neigh- 
borhood made sweeter by his exemjilary private life. 

The appended resolutions of the faculty, from the ])en of Profes>or W. T. 
L. Taliaferro, constitute a just mead of praise upon the life achievements of this 
great and good man : 

Whereas, on the 31st day of December, after a long and distressing illness. 
Dr. Richard W. Silvester passed from this life and entered into the "Silent 
Land," and 

15 







Whereas, Dr. Silvester was President of this Institution from 1892 to 
1912; therefore, be it 

Resolved by the President and Facnhy of the Maryland State College of 
Agriculture, in meeting assembled, That it is fitting and proper at this time that 
this Faculty, many of whom served with President Silvester during his in- 
cumbency, should in formal manner bear testimony to the high character and 
ability of Dr. Silvester as a man, and the splendid physical and moral achieve- 
ments accomplished by him as President of the Maryland Agricultural College. 

Becoming President at an opportune period, when the passage of the second 
Morrill Act gave to the College for the first time a working income, he was 
quick to realize the opportunity, and threw all the force of a strong and vigorous 
personality into the development of the Institution along the lines he deemed 
most profitable to the students under his government and to the people of the 
State. 

Buildings arose, instructional facilities increased, the student roster swelled 
and, reaching beyond the campus, the influence of the College was felt in everv 
part of the State. 

The introduction of engineering courses into the College curriculum, the 
organization of the Farmers' Institute Department and the establishment of the 
State Horticultural Dejiartment were among the first and most prominent demon- 
strations of the initiative and energy which Dr. Silvester threw into his work, 
and of the strong support which he gave to his Faculty. Yet these developments 
were but the results of a moral revolution which had been wrought by him and 
his co-workers in the popular sentiment of the State, converting it from an atti- 
tude of hostility and distrust to one of confidence and i)ride. 

To every department of the College Dr. Silvester gave jiersonal attention 
and loyal support, discriminating only as seemed in his judgment for the best 
interests of all. 

In the student body his interest was })ersonal and cordial to a marked 
degree, embracing not alone their physical and mental training, but also and 
especially their social and moral growth. This care was well repaid in the 
higher tone which was developed in student morale. 

Human frailty and disease arrested Dr. Silvester at a time when he should 
have been best prepared to carry on the great work to which he had devoted 
his life, that as a technical school the Maryland Agricultural College should 
become the most efficient factor in the advancement of his adopted State by the 
scientific training of her citizens to develop her vast natural resources. 

Yet not in vain did he sacrifice the golden treasures of his health and 
strength. He laid a foundation broad and deep upon which may yet be realized 
the ideal which through many bitter trials and disappointment gave him ever 
inspiration and strength. 

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the Minutes of this 
Faculty, and that a copy of them be sent to Mrs. Silvester.

HE old College has passed on. It served its j^urpose well. Its 
purpose was but to pave the way for the advent of a stronger, 
and better, and more useful institution than itself. T\\t old — 
the Maryland Agricultural College — was merely the infant of 
the College that is now growing and developing into manhood, 
and which will soon be the leader of our State and the educator 
of its children. Every great man had a childhood. It was so 
with the Maryland State College. There is nothing more com- 
forting in old age than to have pleasant recollections of a clean, useful childhood, 
and it will ever be thus with our Alma Mater. Her infancy was spent in honest 
and useful endeavor, a never- failing balm to maturity. Every child must grow 
up, every rosebush must produce a bud, and that bud will slowly develop, until 
finally the mature flower bursts forth in all its glory and splendor to fulfill the 
part for which it was placed upon this earth — to make the dreary spots a little 
brighter and to give new vigor to some weary wanderer along the path of life. 

The Maryland Agricultural College developed step by step, until finally 
the bud was no more. In its place we have the full-grown flower. When we 
stop and look about us we realize how great has been the change in our dear 
old College in the last ten years. She has grown in size and scope of work. 
Ten years ago the Maryland Agricultural College was small and comparatively 
inefficient. The student body was by no means as large as it is today, and the 
Faculty has increased twofold in the last ten years. The "old days" are pleasant 
to talk about, but, compared to the easy life the students now lead, they were 
far from ideal. We, who have only three hours of drill a week and inspection 
of the dormitories once in seven days, cannot imagine jumping out of bed in 
the morning, i)utting on uniforms and going through ten minutes of "setting-up" 
exercises before breakfast. That was the life of the "old days," and for the 
"old College" it was a good one. The entrance requirements for our College 
have been raised until she stands on an ecpal footing with any college in the 
United States. The curriculum has been remodeled and the work so increased 
and perfected that a student who graduates from M. S. C. is equipped to make 
his way in the world in competition with the graduates of any other educational 
institution in the United States. Due to the more advanced entrance require- 
ments, the average age of the students has been raised, which has made possible 
the Proctor system of control in the dormitories. Students are being allowed 

17 




sr>„ 



jeEVE/t^Cg 



1^ 



more and more liberties, and it is expected that in the near future even the 
Proctor s}'stem can be dispensed with. 

Along with the steady increase in the usefulness and efficiency of our 
College has gone increased success with our athletic teams. Only a few years 
ago teams from the Maryland Agricultural College went through season after 
season and seldom met any college team from out of the boundaries of Mary- 
land. Last fall State's football team went through a schedule that would have 
been a credit to any so-called secondary college in the United States, and came 
home with colors flying. In one of the most brilliant football games ever staged 
in Maryland, the State championship was decided when State's wonderful eleven 
merely toyed with the touted Ho])kins' team and rolled up fifty-four points to 
her credit. This success is not merel}- a transitory thing. Our athletic teams 
have been rapidly developing year after year. In the near future the new athletic 
field will be completed, and we will have a stadium as good as any in tlie South. 
The student body is increasing rapidly, and every indication insures the success 
of future athletic teams at Maryland State. 

Calvert Hall is the beautiful new building which has rc])laced the old dor- 
mitories, destroyed by fire in 191J. Although the fire (jccurred the year before 
ihe Class of iQi/ entered College, we feel that the fire was somewhat of .'j "blessing 
in disguise." The building \ve ha\e now is worthy of the new College, while 
the old barracks were sadly inadecfuate. The new Agricultural Building will 
fill a long-felt need, and when it is ccjmpleted the efficienc}' of our College will 
be greatly enhanced. 

Surely the change has been great. We are only beginning on the new era 
of our College, and e\ery pros])ect is bright. We have a better College, a larger 
Faculty, more students, greater athletic teams and an enlarged scoi)e of work. 
The beginning of the Maryland State College is indeed an auspicious one. We 
believe in her, and feel confident that, as the years pass on, we will feel prouder 
and prouder of our Alma ]\Iatcr and her sons. 

At the birth of the new College, and with our hopes and aspirations for its 
future, let us not forget the old. Let us ever bear fervently in mind the memory 
of the Maryland Agricultural College, and may Maryland State be a worthy son 
to that dear old College which, in name, is no more.

Ifuxmtll "M. A. C" 



Farewell, "Old" Maryland, a long farewell ! 

Farewell, dear Alma Mater, kind and true; 
Though we have ever loved thee long and w^ell. 

We must to thee now bid our sad adieu. 

Some whisper that thou now art of the past, 
\Vith cherished hopes forever left behind. 

Not so ! For thy sweet lessons hold we fast, 

Thv treasured memories around our hearts we bind. 

Thy glory, uncontined by Old Line State 

But by thy sons proclaimed throughout the land, 

From Plymouth Rock to wondrous Golden Gate, 
Is sung by those who 'round thee take their stand. 

And never shall the sun's bright glory shine 

Upon the end of our belov'd M . A. C. 
Until the last devoted son of thine 

Has crossed life's wild and restless sea. 

The College old regime has passed away; 

But straight upon the ashes of the old 
Flas flamed the dawn of a far greater day, 

I'he destiny of Maryland to mold. 

Allegiance to the new we gladly bear ; 

But toward the visions of the olden days — 
The glory that was M. A. C. the fair— 

We backward turn our still enraptured gaze. 

Farewell, then, Alma Mater, ever dear! 

Whate'er thy fate may be, in weal or woe. 
We pledge our hearts fore'er to hold thee near, 

Thy strength and shield to be from every foe.

Q^l}t Nnu Agrintltural Iml&tug 



The continued ^^rowth of the College, and the increase in the enrollment 
of students desiring to study agriculture, have long since rendered the present 
facilities and quarters of the Agricultural Department inadequate. A separate 
and modern Agricultural I'uilding has, therefore, become one of the pressing 
needs of the College. 

The new Agricultural Ijuilding now being constructed at a cost of nearly 
v^i 70,000 is, when completed, to be u]) to date and modern in every respect. 
It is to be a three-story, iire])roof structure of brick and stone, and will be 
situated between the Engineering Building and the Boulevard, and in line with 
the Chemical and Engineering Buildings. 

The building forms an "H," with a large auditorium constituting the 
horizontal. It will furnish adequate accommodations for the teaching of all 
phases of agriculture, and includes a large stock-judging pavilion, which may 
also be used as a drill hall and temporary gymnasium. 

It is to be hoped that this is but the first of many buildings that will be 
erected on the camjjus in the near future.

DR. HARRY J. PATTERSON 



(iur S^tirtng J^r^aib^nt 



OR. PATTERSON is a native of Pennsylvania, and a graduate of tlic Pennsylvania 
College, from which institution he received his degree before he was twenty years 
old. After graduation he came to Maryland, where he accepted a position as 
chemist at the Experiment Station, which position he held for ten years. Since then 
ne has been Director of the Experiment Station, and has always shown a lively interest in 
all matters pertaining to the advancenwnt of agriculture in Maryland. 

In December, 1913, he assumed the duties of President of the Maryland Agricultural 
College. He found conditions none too favorable when he took the helm, but in 1917, 
as he turns over to another the leadership which he assumed only at the repeated requests 
of his many friends, he leaves the .\gricultural College of Maryland on the highway of 
success. 

Besides his duties as President of the College and as Director of the Experiment 
Station, Dr. Patterson has always taken an active part in scientific matters and especially 
m those concerning the development of agriculture in the State. He is a member of the 
leading Chemical Societies, of the Society for the Promotion of Agriculture, a Fellow of 
the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the Society 
of Chemical Industries of London. 

For the last four years Dr. Patterson has lal)ored under an unusually heavy burden 
and under many difficulties, but despite these handicaps he has accomplished much. He 
nas seen clearly the agricultural possibilities of Maryland, and realized that they could be 
best developed through the building up of her Agricultural College to the highest point 
of efficiency. If he has not realized his greatest ambitions for Maryland's advancement, 
it is due to no fault of his own. We understand that he intends to devote his entire time 
to the work of the Experiment Station, and he deserves the confidence and good wishes of 
the people of the State.

DR. ALBERT F. WOODS 

R. ALBERT F. WOODS was born in Illinois, December 25, 1866, bis father being 
a well-known stock specialist. After being gradnated from the University of 
Nebraska he became an instrnctor in the Botanical Department of the University, 
and at the same time took np post-graduate work leading to a Masters degree. In 
1893 he was appointed to the position of Assistant Chief of the Division of Plant Pathology 
of the United States Department of Agriculture. 

In 1905 Dr. Woods was selected by the President to represent the United States in the 
founding of the International Institute of Agriculture at Rome. He was, the same year, 
designated by the President to represent the United States at the International Botanical 
Congress at Vienna, Austria. 

He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member 
of the Botanical Society of America, of the Washington Academy of Sciences, and of the 
American Society of Agronomy. He is also a life member of the National Farmers Congress 
and, tho last, to Marylanders not the least, a member of the Eureka Chapter of the State 
Grange of Alaryland. Since 1910 Dr. Woods has been at the head of the Agricultural 
Department of the University of Minnesota, and acting president in the absence of the 
Executive. 

On July I, 1917, Dr. Woods will become President of the Maryland State College, and 
Maryland is extremely fortunate in securing such a man as Dr. Woods as the executive 
head of her Agricultural College. He is a man of untiring energy, and his efforts in the 
past have met with no small measure of success. It seems that dreams are coming true ; 
our hopes are at last to be realized. 

With Dr. Woods at the head of the State College, supported by a loyal alumni, and by 
die people of the entire State, we expect to see the Maryland S^ate College, carrying with 
lier the best interests of the people, advancing by leaps and bounds, until she is second to 
no land-grant college in the country.

Hi'", colleji^e graduate is fortunate beyond his fellows. He has exce])- 
tional oi)])ortunities to fit himself for life's work, to ai)i)reciatc 
and enio\- the better and more worthy pleasures of life. In many 
wavs he has ha<l o|i])ortunities U> improxe himself ibiat others 
have not had. A I orally, mentall}', and ])hysically he should stand 
in the front ranks of men. The nation, the state, or wise i)hilan- 
thr()])ists ha\e i)ro\ided the means offered at great cost, where a 
few, com])arati\el\-, ma_\- receixe, at little e.xpense, this e.xcep- 
lional and distinguishing training to make them better men and citizens. 

With these greater op])ortunities for success and i)Ieasure that are conferred 
by a college education, come just in ])roportion greater responsibilities also. 1 he 
world has a right to expect that the personal and business life of the college grad- 
uate shall be above rejjroach, that his insight into the jtroblems of life shall be clear 
and more certain. He has had all the advantages that education and favorable 
surroundings can give, and the right use of his pcnvers is a duty he dare not shirk. 
P>ut it is not enough that the college man be a successful, honest, business man ; 
he should be also an acti\e, intelligent, and constructive citizen, losing no oppor- 
tunty to advance the well being and the economic welfare of his communily and

state. He should take an active part in all public matters, participate in discus- 
sions, and hel]:) with his superior training to mold an intelligent public opinion on 
all matters and activities of general interest. 

The Alumni of the Mar}-land State College of Agriculture, appreciating the 
opportunities they have had, with a desire to do the State the service ^\ hich thev 
owe, and realizing that Maryland has i)ractically the most inadeciuately-equi])ped 
state college in this country, are giving their efforts to the betterment of the Insti- 
tution that the educational facilities of the State may meet the needs of her people. 

This is a great and worthy work. It appeals alike to the oldest and the young- 
est graduates, all of whom have worked for the past four years to lay the founda- 
tion of what they hope will one day be a great college in every sense of the word — 
a college whose influence will be felt in all i)arts of the nation, in every walk of life. 

All of us have had dreams about the College. We, of old M. A. C, and you 
of the new M. S. C, all look forward to the time when, on returning to the College, 
the College will be crowned with adequate, attractive buildings, filled w^ith a 
thousand hapi)y, earnest men of Maryland, each of whom shall lia\e more 
to live for, more to enjoy, more to do, and a larger part in the affairs of the State 
because of what he got at College, i)artly through our efforts. 

Can we who have preceded you, and you men of 1917, do an\tbing more 
worth while, can we do anything which will ai)peal more stirring!}- to each and 
all of us than to lend our best efforts to see that the State provides for our succes- 
sors, our children, and their children the facilities it never provided for us? 

Nor does our duty stop here. We must take a personal, a direct and intelli- 
gent interest in the work of the Ccjllege. We must see that it is doing its work 
well and thoroughly and in a manner that will fit her sons morally, mentally, and 
physically to be strong citizens. We nnist see to it that all college activities are 
chose that make men, men ready and willing and able to meet the duties of life and 
dieir country's call. 

The influence of the Alumni ui)on the student body should be responsibly 
heli)ful, always looking forward. Let us help them to accomplish more and to 
leave undone some of the things that we did. Let us heli) develop a broad and 
deep spirit of unselfishness and patriotism. Let us not be neutral, but forceful, 
upstanding Americans. 

The Alumni Association is twenty-four years old this June. It has set itself 
a man's task : The completion of the work begun by the public-spirited founders of 
ihe Maryland Agricultural College; the development of a State College second to 
none. Let us help to the uttermost.

rOCKTOX, Worcester County, when not 
using both hands to slap mosquitoes, points 
with pride to one of her favorite sons. Cap- 
tain J. A. P>romley, the military genius of M. S. 
C, known around the campus as "Jawn." On 
his arrival at M. S. C, Jawn entered the ranks 
of A Company, and since that time he has been 
everywhere from high private in the rear rank to 
Captain of his Company. 

Way back in his rat year. Jack made a home 
run on Hoot Smith's "wharf rat" team. He 
never recovered from the shock sufficiently to 
continue his athletic career. 

One of J;iwn"s chief ])leasures is to sing praises 
of Mike Creese and tell yarns about Chincoteague 
Island. He is especially interested in electrical 
engineering, and we will not be at all surprised 
some day to hear that P>romley has succeeded in 
generating electricity from old cigar buts. 

A few months ago Jack underwent an opera- 
ti<m at one of the Baltimore hospitals. Since 
that time he has spent many of his week-ends in 
Baltimore, and it is the opinion of many of us 
tliat in spite of his superior military accomplish- 
ments, he is arranging terms of surrender with one 
of the fair nurses. 

We are glad that Jawn is graduating with us, 
and herewith express our sincere hope that he 
will strike pay dirt out in the wide, wide world.

Soplioiiiorc Year — Agricultural Cluli. Junior 
Year — Sergeant in Band; Agricultural Club. 
Senior Year — Lieutenant in liand ; Agricul- 
tural Club. 

"Thoroiigluicss is the key to success." 



;^URRITT or "Baldy" ha.s the gift of 
srasF pbophecy. He can tell what the weather is 
going to be more accurately than the Gov- 
ernment Weather Bureau can. But what is the 
value of a prophetic vision to a person who 
always peers into the future through smoked 
glasses? Some one coined the motto: "Laugh 
and grow fat." Burritt. however, worries and 
seems to thrive in so doing. So far as is known 
his only legitimate cause for anxiety is a tendency 
toward an increasing scarcity of hair on the 
cranium. But, why not view the matter opti- 
mistically and console one's self with the reflec- 
tion that many an infant fly will rejoice at each 
additional roller-skating rink ? 

Burritt has certain avocations which afford him 
more pleasure than the art of prognostication. He 
is fond of music and enjoys playing the piano. 
Most of the students, however, are wont to asso- 
ciate him with the cymbals. In this connection 
he will probably be rememl)ered by Seniors long- 
after most of their classmates have lieen forgot- 
ten. 

Most men have a veneer to mask their emotions. 
Burritt lacks this protective covering. However, 
he is in the happy condition that he needs no 
veneer of any kind. For this reason, and be- 
cause of the persistent, industrious, and pains- 
taking effort with which he undertakes every 
task, he may e.xpect the success which his class- 
mates desire him to achieve.

iw^ E ALL have our idiosyncrasies, but "Javvn" 
j~{_ has the most oeculiar of any one known. 
^^ Can the reader imagine this quiet, docile, 
distinguished countenance belching forth even the 
slightest profane w^ord? It is really unimaginable; 
for when Jawn hears a mere "damn," Oh, my ! he 
hurries from that immediate vicinity and joins 
less violent companions. But enough of his 
idiosyncrasies. Perhaps the reader has heard 
the story of a certain strong man who nunxlered 
a lion with the jaw bone of an ass. This strong- 
man has nothing- on Donnet. Donnet's argu- 
ments, his alibies, just have to be listened to, and 
by listening to said arguments, his hearers are 
killed morally and numbed physically by accents, 
deep-throated and rare. The Biblical strong man 
has nothing on Donnet. 

But let's put a few good words in for him. 
Like several other good men around these parts, 
Jawn was graduated from the City College of 
Baltimore. He came to M. A. C, and with the 
aid of his fiddle he had a "helova" time getting 
off conditions. But somehow or other he man- 
aged to get the High-Brow class, and in this class 
he worked HARD. But then, a fair Jane came 
across Jawn, and great was the fall of Mr. Donnet. 
Thesis work necessitated his going to Baltimore 
every few weeks, — but the fair Jane lived in 
Baltimore also ! And he was once a woman- 
hater ! It sure is wonderful what a few years 
of college will work in a fellow. 

Donnet is a worker, — when he wants to be, — l)ut 
the brown weed has a heavy drag with him. Cut 
out the dopes, Jawn, and we'll predict a great 
future for you.

L'r>\'," iir "Duuuny," our little, rosy- 
cheeked Cherul), was one of the early 
immigrants of this Class, having entered 
the Sub-Freshman Class in the fall of 1912. At 
this time, bugle and paddle were the ruling powers 
around the campus, and from all accounts Duby 
recei\'ed his share of both. 

Although Bernard was lirst gi\en a glimpse of 
this old world in Catonsville, he spent the greater 
])ortion of his early life on an luotern Shore 
farm. 

Duby is a member of the .\nimal Husbandry 
section of this class, l>ut we are all afraid that he 
has missed his calling, ilis natural tendency is 
to ask foolish f|uestions, and it is the universal 
()l)inion of all that he should have taken a college 
course in "Foolish Question Asking." 

Leap year had the well known ctifect upon our 
young friend, for soon after the beginning of the 
year, Duby zealously started a Two-Four Calico 
course at Branchville. This course consists i-if 
writing four times during the week and calling 
twice. Since the evenings set aside for calling are 
the practical periods of this course, Duby some- 
times has to i)ut in an extra jjcriod Tir)w and 
then. 

Never nnnd, Duby, even though you are hav- 
ing trouble in selecting a suitable course for your 
life work, the Class of '17 wishes you oceans of 
hick in the future.

tion is too lengtliy for tbe bustling members of 
our class, so it was left as just plain, ordinary, 
everyday VIM. 

Now Vim, you nnist know, comes from a long 
line of Ministerial ancestors, ;ind consc<iucntly de- 
cided to i)ursuc a course in llieology at our 
respected "inslitootinn." lUit uixm arrival at the 
portals of tbe Mess Mall be bappencd to run across 
Charlie Dory, who, likewise, tho you may never 
have suspected it, has had ambitions to become 
an occupant of the pulpit. Suffice it to say that 
Mr. Fristoe innnediately decided to change his 
course to pomology. Professor Beckenstrater 
contends that this took place upon a F>iday, on 
the thirteenth day of the thirteenth month of the 
year nineteen hundred and thirteen. 

Xovv, Harry was born in old Virginia, and 
before he left that rare old state, he became im- 
bued with thoughts of love, and the "lived happily 
ever after" stuff. We are pleased to be able to 
announce that these seeds of romance have nobly 
born fruit, and we have positive information that 
Mr. Fristoe will not remain forever single. 

Harry's ambition is to invent some new species 
of fruit tree that will bear sugar-plums in the 
winter, and to become a model husband. May 
all the success in the world be yours, dear boy; 
we, the class of '17, arc with you.

FAV YORK has produced some fine specimens, 
^SS ''I't what do you think of this one? It is 
hard to tell how he docs it, but Charlie 
is some "lady killer." When he once smiles into 
their eyes and lisps into their ears, they can't 
resist his charm. He loves them all. What he 
tells them we don't know. It may be that he tells 
of the fortune he is .going to make raising 
cucumbers and cabbage, or, perhaps, he relates 
his adventures among the "high sassiety" of New 
York. It matters not what method he uses, he 
gets results, and that is the desired end. 

"Augie" does not "shine" in society alone, he 
also stars at drill and in "Becky's" class room. 
He was liy far the most popular soldier in the 
l^altalion, judging by the number of "compli- 
ments" the captain used to give him during drill 
hour. 

"Augie" is one of the most popular men in his 
class, and he will be greatly missed by the many 
friends he has made during his stay at Maryland 
State.

"The Idin^iw is iiiiglilicr than llic sa'ord." 



<p\ AM .Mil' I'm from Charles! Such was the 
^^ a^sertinn of the last of the long line of 
Grays as he entered into our midst in the 
autumn of 191,^, fresh from the sand dunes and 
mighty nuid of old Calvert Countx'. 

It seems to have been a custom for the last 
decade for one of the Grays of Cahert to graduate 
with every class, but Dorsey says his name on 
ij's roster spells "h'inis." 

The "i'.elles" ("f College Park and \ icinity took 
advantage of Dorsey when he was a rat, for he 
was then so young that the ladies did not in the 
least mind bounding him fn ni one knee to the 
( ther. However, he has since seceded from such 
maternal care, and the College Park Postmaster 
claims that l)or>e\- sends and receixes more let- 
ters than an\- other li\e fellows at State. 

Dorsey is a star at orating, being the real 
Demosthenes of the Class; and, in general, he has 
maintained the high record of scholastic work set 
by his "Buddies" when they were M. A. Caesars. 

As Proctor of C Section, he has been recog- 
nized as the "whitest little" Proctor in modern 
history. 

We are convinced that if Dorsey becomes as 
popular with the girls as he has been with the 
fellows of 'SI. S. C, the time is close at hand 
when '17's roster will boast another "Mrs."

( Apologies to the Benztown Bard. ) r)Ut don't

ance of our very busy Editor, who is affectionate- 
ly termed "Bugs" by those near and dear to him. 
Eive cents ($0.05) reward for finding Bugs with 
some time on his hands. 

When Bugs first saw the light of day in Savage, 
Md., he started to write, both poetry (?) and 
prose; and since then has run true to form. 

Graduating with high honors from the Savage 
public schools (this much we must assume), the 
precocious youngster, at the age of nine, wrote 
an essay on "How to Skip Classes," and a lengthy 
pamphlet for distribution among the students of 
M. S. C. entitled: "The Use of the Pony in 
Passing Exams." 

We then find him diligently teacliing the Pro- 
fessors at Charlotte Hall. Later, he was induced 
to leave that institution and grace the lialls of the 
laundry barracks with his presence. 

Seriously, though, without a doubt, "Bugs" has 
a line career ahead of him in conunercial or 
literary fields. A good orator, one who cm 
write and appreciate good English, a good mixer, 
and with plenty of sound common sense, he has 
earned the plaudits and good will of the entire 
student Iwdy of M. S. C, and we think he will 
continue to be as successful when he gets out into 
the wide, wide world.

QYP 'rill-: BLOOD" is the title prehxed to 
_^ Douell J. Howard, who claims Brooke- 
***"^ \ille. .Md., as his liome town. Dowell had 
not worn his little knee breeches quite two months 
at M. S. C. when a certain Prof., because of 
Dowell's ability to imitate a dog, commanded 
Dowell: "Go to your kennel, sir." These were 
the hrst harsh words that smiling little Dowell 
had heard since he left mother. However, this 
brought Dowell to ;i revenging state of mind, 
and l.ater he was ideiUilicd as "Gyp the Blood," 
who, with "Lefty Louie." "Pistol Pete," and 
■■\\'hitey Lewis," were known as the four Xew 
^'ork gunmen. Im-oiu that time on. he has been 
known as "Gyp the B>lood." 

The Sophomore and Junior years were spent by 
"Gyj) the liloocl" in gliding around the floor at 
the "Motorman's lUiH" with the "dreadnaughts." 
Dowell was also an ardent devotee to the Taxi- 
cab. In the sunmier Dowell has a "summer girl," 
but is "steady" in the winter. His greatest disap- 
pointment of his College career came in his Senior 
year. He went home for his Xmas vacation, only 
to find his "steady" sick in bed with the measles. 

The greatest lesson Dowell received at College 
was, not to buy any more shaving brushes at the 
United 5 and 10-cent Stores.

autumn of 1913 and jiroceeded to sbow 
his ability for playing footl)all and giving advice 
to the Profs who compose the I'aculty and don't 
have any brains. 

Kish has specialized in more different lines 
while in college than any other man in the Senior 
Class, having tried Animal Husbandry, Flectrical 
Engineering, Rural Fngineering. Agricultural 
Education, several courses in derman, under 
''Honker's" esteemed friend. Dr. S|3ence, and, 
lastly, matrimony. We are inclined to believe 
the last will prove tbe most beneficial for Kish, 
since he needs a better half sadly, llats off to Ivish, 
for he is the first on the 't/ rosier to enter the 
matrimonial circle. We didn't know he had such 
good taste, either. Here's hoping the other mem- 
bers of '17 will follow suit shortly, .and may their 
selection lie as near as possible to the perfect taste 
of Wm. M. 

This spring when a teacher was needed in 
Frederick County High School, Kish had the 
honor of being selected from the Senior Class to 
lill the position for the remainder of the year. 

Kishpaugh has been successful in m.any under- 
takings since he has been with us, and it is the

will follow him throut-bout life.

-IRDI, OR KTXK, as lie is generally known, 
l)Ut in his appearance at school in the fall 
<>i IQ14 He joined our midst as we were 
starting on our career as Sophomores. As he 
was not with us to share in the process of being 
hazed, a few of our number took it upon them- 
selves to show him what he had missed. But he 
took it all in good part and showed himself to 
1)0 the good sport and good fellow that he really 
is. 

Kink is one of the Baltimore parasites that 
infest our old Alma Mater, and after graduating 
at City College he came to M. S. C. and enlisted 
in the chemical section of the Class. Besides 
specializing in chemistry, Fcrdi is taking special 
lessons in driving an automobile with one hand. 
Still he can't exactly be blamed for that, since the 
fair one is nearly always on the front seat with 
him. 

Kink is a very busy man around college. Ac- 
cording to him, the greater portion of his busy 
life is spent in visiting the post-office. Aside from 
receiving letters from and sending letters to 
Baltimore, Kink has very little time left for 
anything except frequent week-end trips to that 
wonderful city. 

By the time June rolls around, we all feel sure 
that Ferdi will be ready to take degrees, not only 
in chemistry, but also in correspondence, auto- 
mobile driving, and long distance telephoning. 
Here's to you, Kink ! We all wish you luck.

AY BACK TN 1913, when the Faculty and 
students received the first shock due to the 
appearance of Mr. Larsen on the campus, it 
was resolved then and there that never, so far as 
any one there knew, had such an elongated, 
slatternly piece of humanity been seen or heard of 
around the College grounds. And right there, 
before the first efifects of his appearance had worn 
oflf, originated the cognomen under which Lars 
was to continue his existence — "The Lanky, Long- 
Legged Daffodil from Long Island." 

If the gentle reader will kindly focus his optical 
neurones (see Professor Bomberger) upon the 
line of printed matter directly underneath our 
hero's name, he will find written there the omnious 
word which denotes our loved one's future occupa- 
tion. We say future, because, as Professor 
Anspon will readily testify, it most certainly has 
not been in the past four years. During this 
time, Charley has been chiefly engaged in col- 
lecting shoes for the Riverdale shoemaker, selling 
tickets, writing themes for Professor Richardson, 
and giving advice to the lovelorn, namely, Burritt, 
as to the conduct of his love affairs. Yes, we 
repeat, as a horticulturist, Lars is certainly an 
excellent skater. 

Lars, or Charles, as he is affectionately 
designated by a young lady of Riverdale, has a 
great ambition to marry some heiress, so that 
he may live in peace and comfort during the rest 
of his childhood, and later in his youth and old 
age. Go to it, Lars, we're with you until you 
chance upon some rash damsel from St. Eliza- 
beth's who fulfills the requirements. For, as those 
who know you will readily assert, your straight- 
forwardness and good-nature make you deserving 
of all that comes \our wav.

"SloTv' ami sfi'iidv T^'iiis the race." 



[^ 



HORTLV after .Mr. Nash entered college 
he decided to study to 1)ecome a chemist. 
Since then he has heen diligently engaged 
in studying all phases of chemical activity. He 
has snitTed all the udors from chloroform to hy- 
drogen sulphide, and he expects, within a-.short 
time, to he the recipient of a doctor's degree from 
the Sophomore Class fur the invention of an im- 
proved form of "Rat" liiscuit. 

"P. M." is well ad;ii)le(l for employment in tlie 
chemical industries. In fact, he would probahly 
pas.s a lighted match to a friend over the top of a 
keg of exposed gunpowder without a tremor. The 
evidence for this statement lies in the fact that 
he can walk up the path with the "co-ed" and 
manifest a greater degree of sangfroid than any 
(itlier man in college could display under similar 
circumstances. 

Xasii is not in sympathy with Company "D". 
lie thinks that org;iniz;iliiin ought to be dis- 
banded on tile grounds that it is not prepared 
for nnlitary duty. 

.\lthough "P" is, in general, well satisfied with 
the chemical course, he realizes that it is deficient 
in one particular. — It does not include sufficient 
instruction in ])s\chology to enable a chemist 
who is in search of employment to make the most 
efYective presentation of his qualifications before 
the man of wlK)m he seeks employment. This 
defect in the chemical department will probably 
be remedied in lime. In the meanwhile he may 
accept wdiat assistance the .Senior Class can give 
l)y mental telepathy.

where they have "mysteriously journeyed" during 
their stay in College, whom they have loved, and 
what is their destiny. With the truly great, it is

despeak the man." 

So let it Ije with our "Ohie". Let us not mini- 
mize the great work that "Ohie" has done for 
State by reciting any single act. But for those 
who would carry with them a picture of Lyman 
Oberlin's character, let us recall his work and his 
courage during the Hopkins-jMaryland Football 
Game in 191 5. Following that game, one Balti- 
more paper wrote: "With their backs against the 
wall, with a 3-0 score against them, the Maryland 
boys fought like gladiators until the end." Yes ! 
they did fight, "A. V.". "Blonde", "Kish", and the 
rest of them, but it was "Ohie's" courage, "Obie's" 
generalship, and "Obie's" undying loyalty that 
kept them fighting. Let his work on that day 
bespeak his past and forecast his future-

OSFS" or "Bear"' came to college and 

mm then tried to quit, but it couldn't be 
done. The charm of old M. S. C. 
hrtiught him back. Right glad is his class, for in 
him it has the honor of owning the "pet" of the 
Fngineering Department. "Moses" dotes on the 
girls, and 'lis said that when he goes home there 
is always a bevy of girls to greet him. "Bear" 
|)robably received his name from his many "affairs" 
with the ladies. He has also gone into business. 
He is devout on Sundays, doing penance for the 
sales he makes on week days. Have you ever 
heard of his fondness for dwellings, especially 
"houses"? There's a reason. 

Of course, you have all heard of Dr. Jekyl and 
Mr. Hyde. Well, "Moses" is also known as 
"Bear.'' Although it is not generally known, 
"Bear" is the fellow who steals chickens, culti- 
\ates "drags" and puts screws in the church col- 
lection plate. However, because of bis affiliation 
with the Hyattsville Church, and because of his 
youthful and innocent appearance, no one suspects 
his double life. 

There was a time when "Moses" was about the 
best track and football man in school. Since his 
retirement he has become quite sober and busi- 
ness-like. 

Here's to "Bear," good-natured as the days are 
long. Success awaits his kind.

HIS prepossessing individual, fellow-readers, 
Hml is none other than "Old INIan Electricity" 
himself. Looks calm and staid, doesn't he? 
lie is, at times, but when he gets "riled", look 
out! Don't, whatever you do, molest him when he 
is prepared for a good night's sleep, because the 
consequences are dangerous. When he once gets 
really "tight," look out ! 

"Al" has always been a good student, and when 
it comes to replacing broken bulbs and ti.xing 
blown-out fuses, he is really (|uite a wonder. He 
did not spend all of his time at college, however, 
chasing electricity around, for as a social man 
"Pop" was some "Bear". After the Christmas 
Holidays in his Senior Year, "Al" hiliernated for 
a whole week, and when he finally "came to", 
raved about Charlestown, Poolesville, Kensington, 
Rockville, Baltimore, and other attractive towns 
in and near Montgomery County. His only two 
weaknesses are Theda Bara and Gin Eizzes. 

Seriously, though. "Al" has been one of our very 
best students, and that he will succeed we have 
no fear.

When ■']'.. V ." wants a thing, he usually gets it, 
because he has a way of "hanging around" until 
he is given what he desires. He contends that 
"drag" and a little "soft stuff" will get a man

ha\e had no experience. 

When it comes to ^Military. Bernard is on the 
■job. The formations and twists he can't execute 
with that "B" Company of his have never been 
invented. By the way, he also has an "affair." 
It seems to be pretty serious, but the "patient" may 
recover. They usually do. 

The Class of Seventeen wishes you the best of

/^ ENTLE reader, llie picture nn this ]iage is 
wH»g of our only walking "Skeleton", k'liown 
around the campus as "Shoe". Shoe hails 
from Ashton. the "Garden .Spot of Monty". Me 
entered College as a I<"reshuian. and many wonders 
has he performed during his College ^career. 
Most prominent among his accomplishments is his 
ability to deny that he is ever wrong. Thus, Shoe 
de\'eloped a remarkable \-ocabular\', which proved 
a valuable asset to him when he was elected to 
edit our College Weekly. Never before was the 
Weekly read with so much interest as when edited 
by Shoe's pen. 

"Shoe" has gi\en the social life of College his 
earnest attention, and rarely, if ever, does he miss 
a dance. It might be stated here that the social 
whirl has helped "Shoe" lo overcome a great fear 
— Never to pluck a lemon. 

Laying all joking aside. "Shoe" is a popular man 
in College, has proved himself an earnest worker 
in the many collegiate activities, and though we 
wish him the greatest measure of success, we can 
wish him nothing more than that his life should 
be as successful as his College career has been.

Little we thought that Luke, who then 
was a timid little schoolboy, would come out 
from among the M. S. Caesars as a Sparticus and 
gain complete control over the Maryland State 
College Army. As rapidly as grew Luke's military 
abilit\^ also grew his heartbreaking nature. He 
has been known to shoot, stab, cut, and ride over as 
many hearts as there were men slain on the Battle- 
fields of Europe in 1916. No doubt Luke is a 
dashing lover, and he has chosen from the hearts 
bowed down before him the one who pleaded, 
"Yours to do with as you like." 

Luke is a man. He represents the "survival of 
the fittest." When he steps up to receive his 
diploma, no doubt he will be praised and his name 
raised to the sun for having defeated all competi- 
tors, and being the lone student capable of finishing 
the Biological Course. It is well established that 
"Happ" Mess and Luke were the only men to 
attempt the course. 

Luke was often seen gazing al)nut the Campus 
with his mouth and eyes wide open, saying, 
"There's no argument to that, is there?" How 
about it, Luke?

HOMSEN, alias Feets. holds a unique posi- 
tion as inenilter of our class. He resides in 
Hyattsville, lias day-dodged for six long 
years, has been at College longer than any other 
man in our class, is the only surviving member of 
the prep class, and, abme all, possesses one of the 
largest sets of pedal extremities in captivity. 

Socially, "Feets" is "some fusser", and, for some 
unknown reason, seems to be ashamed to talk 
without having his hand o\er his mouth. It is 
rumored that this is to guard his lips, for he is 
constantly fearful that something might slip that 
would cause him to be ashamed of it afterwards. 

At tirst "h'eels" was an ardent supporter of 
nnlitarism, but due to the great rush of business, 
caused by the ever-increasing demand for "red 
firing line", he was compelled to se\er all rela- 
tions with the military world during his Sopho- 
more and Junior Years; but in his Senior Year 
his patriotic spirit got the better of him, and as a 
result we now tlnd him drilling as high private in 
Company C. 

"F>ets" accompanied the stock-judging team to 
Springfield, and immediately upon his arrival pro- 
ceeded to judge the fair dames of the town. 
During Maryland Week he made his second 
choice, but this one resides in Florida, so it is 
hard to sa\^ whether "Feets" will leave for Spring- 
field or St. Petersburg inunediately after gradua-

\l\i. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the 
^^ "shining liglit" of the class of nineteen 
^.evcnteen. "Reds", or "Piggie", hails from 
"Charles County, God help us !" He seems to 
have an unsatiatcd proclivity for the close ex- 
amination of Duroc livestock, hence his name. 
He says that after heing graduated from State 
he is going to settle down in old Charles, but he 
fails to tell us with whom. Perhaps, however, 
owing to his frequent visits to Washington it 
would not he hard to guess. He is somewhat of 
an Indian in th;il he i)ossesses that fidelity to his 
friends which wa^ always so characteristic of the 
.\merican Aborigines. 

His one ambition seems to be to li\e up to the 
motto that he has long since chosen as his life's 
guide, "Eat, drink, and be merry", and, ye Gods! 
how nearly does he live up to it. 

Perhai)s some flay when scanning the pages of 
jxililical journals you will read of the doings of 
lion. R. D. Watson, for he seems to have the 
qualifications of a brilliant lawyer, w?.., the ability 
to tell you anything except the thing that you want 
to know and to ask "fool" cpiestions. 

Wherever the quest of fortune and the paths of 
ambition ma\' lead him we wish him a fer\ent 
Godspeed.

UCH WAS tbe plea of "Avey" wbcn told 
his life history must l)e recorded along witli 
the annals of the other great men of the 
Senior Class. Why the "Wallop ?"—Sh ! That's 
a secret ; but suffice it to say that a sister's bro- 
ther's name is "Wallop." 

"Avey" has been extremely popular with the 
ladies ever since he became an M. A. Caesar, and 
it is common to see him sitting on a revolving 
piano stool, in order that he may converse with 
five or six of the fair sex at one time. 

"Avey" is "Doc Tolly's" pet ; in fact, '"Doc" 
claims that "Avey" is his inspiration for noble 
works. "Avey" says it requires nearly all of his 
time to give "Doc" the advice he so badly needs, 
for "Doc" is his d — n dear friend. 

Aside from these laborious duties, "Avey" cap- 
tains "C" Company, wins "M's" in football and 
lacrosse, and scores hundreds in exams. 

The honors "Avey" has held while in College 

are tributes to his ability and his popularity, and 

the friends to whom he has endeared himself as 

a classmate and a friend wish him the best of 

success ill life.

Still feelings of sadness remain ; 
As we near the longed-for goal so bright, 

Thoughts of absent friends bring pain. 

When as "Rats" we entered old M. A. C, 

Forty-hve we numbered, or more ; 
But due to life's uncertainty 

There are missing almost a score. 

Whether amid the city's din, 

(3r the country's quiet they dwell. 
Their memory is locked our hearts within — ■ 

There can be no soul's farewell. 

We wish them Gods])eed and of luck the best;

Remember, old boys, in your fortune's quest, 

Our hearts and our hopes are with you. 

Come, classmates, lift high the cheering glass;

In memory of those who've been lost from our class —

HE Senior Class entered College under unusual conditions. The 
old dormitories had just been burned to the ground, and military 
discipline had given way to the less rigid mode of student control. 
Under such circumstances it was natural for the "Rats" to shiver 
in apprehension of the unrestrained coercive measures of the 
Sophomores. We felt as if we were the Pilgrims, just landed on 
the desolate rock of Plymouth, with the cold spray cooling our 
spines, the raging sea striving to grasp us, and hostile Indians with 
bended bows lurking behind every rock, bush and tree to destroy us. Even if our 
fathers suffered more than we when it was necessary to apply corporal punish- 
ment, there was no reason to suppose that a good strong paddle in the hands of a 
ruthless Sophomore was more susceptible to pain than the hide of an afflicted 
"Rat." 

Well, as the impending doom remained suspended, like the sword of Dam- 
ocles, within a short time after the first feeling of terror, each humble "Rat" began 
to lift up his head and stride more boldly. Then the dreaded calamity overtook 
us. Peremptory orders were issued requiring the presence of each "Rat" in the 
smoking-room at a definite time. We went, ran the gauntlet, were kicked out, and 
had no desire to go again. 

At last the days of serfdom were ended. "Rats" had metamorphosed into 
"Sophs." So sincere was our joy on this occasion that it was generally agreed to 
mitigate the sufferings of the forlorn "Rats" who succeeded us. Good intentions 
are all right, when judiciously employed, but we made the mistake of being too 
tolerant towards "Rats," who were born to be lucky. As a result, we let them 
drag some of the best athletes of M. S. C. through the muddy waters of Paint 
Branch. We can never forgive ourselves for the slipshod manner in which we 
managed those audacious "Rats." However, we imposed a badge of servitude 
upon them in the form of green caps. This was a novelty at the College, but the 
desirability of the innovation was established by the fact that those "Rats," who 
were first subjected to this form of distinction, later contributed their efforts to 
perpetuate it as a custom. 

It was in the Sophomore year that the Strongback Club was organized. This 
club has many of our classmates enrolled as illustrious members, and it is believed 
that when the Class of '17 graduates the worthy organization will be forced to dis- 
band on account of a scarcity of able leaders. Such a contingency would be a

THE PRIDE OF SEVEMTEEN

cause for deep regret, for the society has performed efficient service in its humble 
sphere. 

The succeeding year in class history was rather uneventful. All of the aspira- 
tions of the class were involved in the determination to give a better "Junior Prom" 
than had ever been given in the history of the College. It was, however, an ex- 
ceedingly difficult task to make the preliminary arrangements for an enterprise 
that was to be conducted on so large a scale. For a time the Treasurer was given 
reason to infer that all of the members of the Junior Class had joined the Strong- 
back Club. But at last the preparations were completed, and the reward of arduous 
labor was realized. 

The entertainment was a grand success, and it was generally admitted by those 
who attended to be superior to previous functions of that nature. The decora- 
tions, the music, the refreshments and the manner in which the afifair was con- 
ducted were well calculated to invoke a spirit of festal joy. Of course, with so 
many members of the Faculty present, there was no opportunity for an excessive 
indulgence in pleasure, but, by some perversity of fate, every Junior who attended 
the dance was unable to study properly for several days afterwards. 

With the beginning of the Senior year a great change has taken place in the 
members of our class. They quarrel among themselves as readily and vigorously 
as ever, but they seem to feel the shadow of the sorrow to be caused by their dis- 
persion, which the rapid flight of time has brought uncomfortably near. 

We have already experienced regrets of this nature. The blighting elTect of 
matrimony has been felt by the Senior Class. The wedding bells tolled for poor 
"Honker" while no loyal classmate was at hand to save, and when he showed up 
later, no longer a free man, he endeavored to conceal the knowledge of his bond- 
age. Now he is gone. We greatly deplore the untimely departure of our fellow- 
classmate, and we shall miss his genial smile as we gather for class exercises. 

Recently there has been a serious attempt to effect a moral reformation of the 
entire Senior Class. "Jawn" Donnet was the first convert. Williams, however, 
remained obdurate. He refused to deny himself the i)leasure of questioning the 
professor when the rest of the Seniors were anxious to get information as to what 
was the nature of the questions that would be asked in the examination. 

As this article is about to go to the press dire tidings have been received. The 
"Commy" intends to give a written examination at the end of the school year. 
The casualty list is bound to be high. Company "D," otherwise known as "Bryan's 
.\rmy", will perish to the last man. Company "D" will fight U) the last ditch, but 
the laws of fate are inexorable. 

As we review our class history we are compelled to admit, although reluc- 
tantly, that we have obtained very little distinction with respect to literary achieve- 
ments. This admission is especially grievous because there are, among us, men 
who are capable of accomplishing much in the realm of literary activities.

As a diversion from study, this class lias been more interested in athletics 
than in anything else. (Jur athletes have won laurels in football, baseball and 
lacrosse, and the absence of these men is likely to be felt in the succeeding year. 
Oberlin, Derrick, Kishbaugh, Tarbutton, Coggins and Williams have done good 
work on the football team. Derrick, Dearstyne and Oberlin have performed with 
equal credit on the baseball team. Gray. Coggins and Tarbutton have done well 
in lacrosse. 

Every member of the class is proud of these athletes, for we know that they 
represent the type of man that is demanded for the maintenance of high standards 
of honor in American sports. 

Captain Oberlin has ably managed the football team throughout a season in 
which it has established a record which no football team of M. S. C. has equaled. 
Captain Derrick will manage the baseball team ecjually well. and. we hope, with 
like success. 

As our class is about to depart, it observes that M. S. C. is preparing for a 
more glorious future. The Class of '17 desires that those students in the other 
classes that are to remain here a while longer may lind their sojourn as pleasant 
as ours has been. For ourselves, we only wish that we may so live as to reflect 
credit ujjon the institution to which we owe so much.

l'yrL'RX]X( 1 to AT. S. C. from the wilds of Montgomery and the 
fruitful hills of Charles count}', we f(»und that many of our former 
classrnates had left us. ( )f the more than 50 members of our 
S()])h()inore year, only 3<S attained to the dijji'nity of Juniors. Even 
of these, se\eral found difficulty in getting oft" their Sophomore 
and I'reshnian conditions, and were several weeks late in enter- 
ing. ( )ne nieniher of our class had gone to the Mexican border 
as a militiaman, and when he returned found that his fellow-engi- 
neers had ])enetrated too far into the mazes of higher mathematics for hiiu to fol- 
low them, so we wish to here record that though l*"uhi-man dropped from the Class 
of ']8. it was through no fault of his. 

Iveviewing. as is customary, the Junior events of the year of "16-' 17. the 
athletic achievements oi Juniors stand out ])rominently. Two Juniors were mem- 
bers of Maryland State's jihenomenal football team, which swept the State and 
cleaned up Johns H()])kins to the tune of 34-0. Posey, best guard in Maryland, 
and Rich plaved regularh', while Arthur and I'.oone l)oth contributed materially 
to the successful season. 

We Juniors were not missing in other s])orts. I*4)])ley and Kakemaim per- 
formed creditabK' in track, Avhile Kann just missed placing several times. Since 
he has shaved oft' his moustache, and thus removed a goodly i)ercentage of the 
weight he carries, we have high ho])es for him for the future. 

We have to oiu- credit a new organization — the Junior Animal llusbandry 
Club. 'Idiis noble organization was formed in the first term, and has since fol- 
lowed its high ideals with commendable fidelity, holding weekly meetings where 
the members of the club delivered talks on animal subjects. This clul) has to its 
credit the formation of a ])oultrv judging, team. This team, com])osed of (irigg. 
Haig and McKinley. went to the Madison Square Carden Poultry Show, and out 
of a number of teams ca])tured fourth ])]ace. 1 he members of the te;un did not 
return at once, but stayed in Xew York for the balance of the Xmas holidays, 
spending their time judging another variety of "chickens." 

Our class has also done well in literary and scholastic matters. In the two 
literary societies Juniors have been prominent, and of the debaters in the annual 
inter-society debate one member of each team was a Junior. "Speedy" Merrill 
and "Professor ( ?)" Engle both put up good speeches, and Engle won the medal 
for the best individual debater.

During- the }car we developed such a large and assorted variety of wit that 
finally by unanimous consent a brown derby was offered as prize for the most 
odoriferous specimen. The competition was s])irited, and there were many con- 
testants for the prize. Jones" "Alexandria" Hamilton and "Wow" Carroll's 
"fire-distinguisher" ( Feuerspritze equals fire-engine) stood high in rank, but the 
coveted prize finally went to Day for the f(jllowing : 

Day — "Jones, a farmer once had a pure-white ])!g. lie named it Ink. Why 
did he?" 

Jones — "I don't know. Why did he?" 

Day — "Well, it Avas always running out of the pen." 

Jones — "Ouch! Where's a brick?" 

(We might mention that Day is the i)rou(l possessor of a fountain pen.) 

ddie Junior year began to foreshadow our future debut into the real world. 
The separate courses started to diifer materially one from another, and we com- 
menced to realize something of the character of the work in which we were indi- 
vidually si)ecializing. In ])articular, several of us showed unnu'stakaljle evidences 
of Avhat life work we are going to follow. Mckinley has becoiue devoted to 
"Annabelle" and "the Kid" and ex])ects some day to be world-famous as an 
expert goat-milker and an expert goat-milk analyzer; John Paul Jones aj^parently 
is destined to discover what is the difference between a live plant and a dead one, 
now that he has started his l)rilliant experiments in Dr. Appleiuan's laljoratory, 
A\hile l)rother Engle is headed straight toward becoming a second Xa])oleon. 

( )ur class has developed a remarkable facility in breaking precedents. Sev- 
eral of the sections of the class have induced the baculty to change their courses 
so as to better meet jtresent conditions. ( )ther hoary precedents too numerous 
to mention ha\e been laid awa}- in peace, but there is one whose smashing so far 
exceeds all others that they jiale by comparison. "Ditz" Rakemann gor only two 
conditions in the second term ! Think of that ! With the exce])tion of Dr. Talia- 
ferro's classes, he did not Hunk a single subject ! The world is surely coming to 
an end. 

War ! A dark cloud hovers over our country, and as this goes to press no 
man may say what \vill come. W^e stand back of the President in all he does, and 
if war does come, we members of the Junior Class will do our share. Already 
extra classes in military instruction have been started, and we, who will be the 
fust to graduate from M. S. C. as a Reserve Officers' Training Corps, have already 
begun to fit ourselves for whatever the nation ma}- call on us to do. 

The spring term passed in a whirl of activity, and before we knew it we 
marched up the chapel aisle to take our "oaths of office" for the next year. With 
simple Ijut iiupressive ceremonies we received the college shield and fasces from 
the graduating class, and wdien we left for the summer took with us a feeling of 
new responsibilities to come and new honors yet to be achieved.

T is needless to ask whether the Junior Prom was a success, be- 
cause it was not possible for it to be otherwise, with such men 
as Peck, Clark, Dits Rakemann and Reginald Arthur as the com- 
mittee in charge, and with good class spirit, such as is found ill 
the Junior Class. The Junior Class picture is in this book some- 
where. Look at them closely and draw your own conclusions as 
to whether the Prom could have been anything but a success. 
The ballroom of the Cairo was filled to its capacity with the 
Junior Class and their guests, the Seniors, and a number of Alumni. M. S. C, 
men presented an appearance which could not be surpassed ; and the ladies — 
well, we will all have to admit, as usual, that the fair sex gave more of splendor 
to the dance than all the Apollos in the world could have done. 

Those who are acquainted with the Cairo ballroom will acknowledge its 
beauty without decoration, but the Committee on Decoration were not satisfied 
with the beauty, and greatly added to the appearance of the hall. Pennants, ban- 
ners and flags were used by the committee, whose artistic arrangement was re- 
sponsible for one of the most beautiful dance halls ever seen in Washington. The 
feature of the decorations was the beloved old Senior flag, which so many times 



85 




fSEVXTClLgr 



1^ 



was raised on the College cani])us to signify another victory for the Class of '17 
over the Class of '18. in the l-^-eshman-Sophomore contests. Ragged edges pre- 
dominated, hnt the flag was still beautiful, and it made every Senior's heart heat 
with joy as he danced around the hall and gazed upon it. 

The programs were in the form of a souvenir, and were beautiful and useful 
in every sense of the word, ddie ladies" program was a neatly arranged vanity 
case, and the men's was a handy little card case. l"Jther one was worth having, 
and their quality will i)ermit them to serve as a memento of the occasion for a 
very long time. 

The committee in charge deserves to be congratulated for securing the excel- 
lent music for the evening. At <; o'clock the foiu--i)iece orchestra struck up the 
first dance, and such nnisic it was! The del)utantes, ( )l)erlin and Tosey, were in- 
spired bv it to the extent that the ( loddess Terpsichore herself would have to 
start training to comi)ete with the grace that was exhil)ited In- these two f(jotball 
captains. The orchestra willingly res]K)n(led to encore upon encore on the con- 
tinuous applause of the dancers, and as a result it was 1 o'clock when the strains 
of Home, Sweet Home, the tinal numljer. died u])on the air.

College Park, IMd., 
Dr. W. Allen Griffith, January 25, 1917. 

'Otel 'Orse, 

London, England. 
Dear Doctor : 

I will quote you a dialogue which took place between Cadet Brown and me 
this afternoon, and hope you will give me your opinion on the case. 

Brown walked into the office during the course of the evening and said : 
"Arthur, I want you to tell me what is wrong with me and give me some pills." 

"Very well," I said, "how is your throat?" 

"Oh, it doesn't hurt me at all, but I just cannot eat this Mess Hall grub." 

"Very naturally," said 1. "I lave any trouble with your eyes?" 

"Well," said Brown, "1 don't know that it's my eyes, but I go to sleep every 
day in Professor Bomberger's class. Lots of others do it, too, so I guess you'll 
have some other examinations to make." 

"That simplies matters." I said, and gave him some "blue" ones. 

"Now, Arthur," he said to me, "I want an excuse from drill for today. Last 
night I started on a theme for Professor Richardson and 1 got so interested that 
I worked right through until dinner today." 

Recognizing a serious brain disorder, I added some "green" ones, and said : 
"Why didn't you come down earlier, so that the Commandant might have got 
your excuse before he went home?" 

"Well," said Brown, "I'll tell you. I've been up before the Discipline Com- 
mittee for the last four hours, while they were trying to decide whether I should 
have close confinement for thirty days or be compelled to attend one of Dr. Reed's 
English Literature lectures. This is really my first opportunity to get down." 

This is a very ordinary occurrence, so I gave him his excuse, and said : "How 
is it you have been before the Discipline Committee?" 

'T went in to the Treasurer the other day and paid in full my bill of $3.40. 
Air. Harrison hadn't seen so much dough since the State Legislature's appropria- 
tion of $15 four years ago. He called a special meeting of the Committee to see 
if I was trying to work counterfeits," he said. 

"You're in dutch with the h'aculty, anyway, aren't you?" I then asked. 

"Yes, you see I was a member of the Committee on Arrangements for the 
Junior Prom this year, and when we decided to charge the Faculty members $2 
apiece it broke their tender little hearts. As a result only two of them turned 
out, and they wouldn't have been there if some of the Juniors hadn't given them 
tickets. They have been sore at the Committee ever since. 

"By the way, did you hear about the Faculty party the other night? Well, 
they had one to make up for missing the Prom. The student body took up a col- 
lection for it last week. During the course of the evening they played a game 
called "buttin' in," and Doc Tolly quit because they wouldn't let him be chief 
goat. Well, so long; see you later," as he walked out of the office. 

Now, Doctor, mv judgment was probably hasty, and if I have used the wrong 
color pills, I hope you will cable me at once, so that I may use a neutralizing color. 

Very truly yours, 

R. W. Arthur.

FTER leading a most gallant and prosperous freshman year, the 
Sophomore Class made its debut on the Campus of Maryland 
State with all the pomp and vanity of this wicked world. After 
winning all but one of the interclass contests in their freshman 
year, this class entered the new }ear full of hoi)e and enthusiasm 
as to what the\- would do to the "Rats." 



^^ ^^ ^^ 
E^^ ^^ E^^ 



The class formulated the fairest set of "rat rules" ever drafted, 
■ but discarded "rat cap" in favor of one made of white felt with a 
red visor. The class was determined to have the class colors on the campus, and 
it has been accomplished in this manner. About the only thing the class lacks is 
nerve. When it comes to dealing with the new fellows they know how to handle 
them, but when it comes to girls the}' lie low, and the two co-eds go unca])ped. Is 
it because the}- are afraid of girls? Not at all. The class possesses one of those 
unique specimens of humanity, a married man, the only one in college so far as it 
is known, and he says that Women are past understanding, and the rest of the 
fellows believe him and let well enough alone. 

The class is well represented on the athletic tield in all l)ranches of the s^^ort. 
Jamie Smith, Rlondy Merrill, Dutch i\.xt and Fuzzy Coster ha\e done good work 
in football. Buddy and Joe and h^-eddie Chichester played good ball, and when it 
comes to swinging that tennis racquet, Jimmie Shoemate and Bumps Buell are all 
there. But the most noble of all are the Corporals in the Battalion. To hear them 
scream out their commands is first to admire and then to worship. 

Feeling the absence of co-eds, the class decided to appoint certain members 
to act as such, namely, Madam Burnside, Virginia Conyngton and Vernon Castle. 
These dear ladies receive the s]^ecial attention and care of the chicken fancier, 
Dutch Axt. 

The class holds a most enviable record in scholastic work. In fact, no class 
has ever held such a good record. There have been some, of course, who managed 



92 







to land conditions, but, being nobly born, they have risen to the occasion and 
thrown off the yoke of that tyrant, Condition. The class has some notable orators, 
but space will not permit their names to be mentioned here. 

Tn interclass contests, the freshmen have won once, and the so])homores once. 
The freshmen took the cane rush, and the sophomores the cross-country run. In 
this latter afi'air a man practically unknown as an athlete came out ahead, Rust. 
Since this affair the red and white has floated over the campus. An unsolved 
mystery, however, is the disappearance of the Flag. This class is i bunch of 
peace-loving individuals, but if they ever hnd out who monkeyed with the flag, 
there would be but one ccnirt to a])])eal t(j. 

The greatest event ever jnilled off at State was the Grand Review of Rats 
before the spring exams. Orders were published several days before for all 
"Rats" to assemble in front of Calvert Hall, under arms and wearing rat caps. 
They were formed in squads with sophomores acting as officers. The command 
was then formed and marched over the campus in review. The class then received 
a great surprise. Miss Johnson presented to the class a flag of red and white 
taffeta silk with the numerals "19" across it. "Present Arms" was ordered as the 
flag was unfurled. The march was then resumed until supper time. This affair 
was voted the best that was ever seen at State. 

Individually the class has man}^ shining marks. Several members of the class 
visited New York City for the first time at Thanksgiving, and upon their return it 
was noticed that they held their heads pretty high, and everybody wondered why, 
but finally it leaked out that they were receiving special attention from the doctor 
for a stiff neck. It might have been contracted in the sleeper, but best authorities 
claim that it came from gazing at the high buildings. 

A certain distinguished member makes such fine lectures on growing tobacco 
and dehorning red-polled cattle, that the professors in these subjects give him the 
platform. 

The class was the largest Freshman Class ever registered at State, and like- 
wise it is the largest Sophomore Class, although only two-thirds of the class 
returned, and six have been dropped since then.

THE CANE RUSH 




fSEVE7z:x§ 



12^ 



3lnt^r-QIlaHH Qlnnt^Bte 




'V was not until the fall of 1914 that the custom of holding inter - 
class contests was inaugurated at Maryland State. Previous to 
the inauguration of this custom, very little class spirit was shown, 
and comparativel}- little rivalry existed, 'i'he puri)ose of these 
inter-class contests is mainly to create rivalry between the Fresh- 
man and Soi)homore classes, and to develop good class spirit. 

The first inter-class contest held at M. S. C. w-as a cane rush 

between the classes of '17 and ']8. Since this contest was staged 

rhere has always been a great rivalry between the two classes. All of the students 

taking part in these contests have become more ambitious, and an excellent class 

spirit has been develoi)ed. 

The contests taking place between the classes each year are a cane rush, ])ool 
tournament, tug-o'-war, baseball game and a tennis match. The class winning the 
first contest of the year gains the right to fly its flag on the campus until a contest 
is lost to the op])osing class. 

The first contest this year was a cane rush, and was w^on by the PTeshmen. 
The two classes lined up at each end oi the football field, and at the crack of the 
])ist()l, dashed for the cane, which was stuck in the middle of the field. One of the 
Sophomores reached the cane first and carried it about five yards into the Fresh- 
man territory. The Freshmen, however, were not discouraged, but went about 
the work of moving the cane like Trojans, and slowl}^ but surely, the cane moved, 
until, at the end of five minutes, it had moved ten yards and rested five yards in 
Sophomore territory. The iM-eshmen were winners, and in a short time their flag 
decorated the cam])us. 

In a short time the Soi)homores grew tired of seeing a Freshman flag float 
over the cam])us, and decided to challenge the freshies to a cross-C(nmtry run. 
The course laid out for the race was something less than two miles. The runners 
were bunched for about one-half mile, and then they began to scatter, and when 
the goal was reached, Rust of the So])homores was a strong winner. The first 
ten men finished in the following order: (1) Rust, Soph; (2) Smith, J. E.— - 
Soph; (3) Aitcheson — Sojih ; (4) Ruppert — Fresh; (5) Clark, G. S. — Soph; 
(6) Stager — Fresh; (7) Wilson — Fresh; (8) Hand — Soph; (9) Atkinson — 
Fresh; (10) Chichester — Soph. Immediatel}- after the contest the Sophomore 
flag was raised. 

The above-mentioned contests are the only ones that have taken place so far 
this year, but as soon as some of the chill comes ofif of Point Branch, the two 
classes will line up to determine who will hit the cold water. 

Inter-class contests have proved a great success at M. S. C, and the interest 
taken in them is becoming more intense each vear.

HI'L i»i-esent Freshman Class, the Class of 1920, was the first Fresli- 
man Class to matriculate at the Maryland State College of Agri- 
culture, under its new name. The standard for college entrance 
had been raised, so that the members of this class have the high- 
est academic standing of all the Freshman Classes that have 
entered this college. The members of the class are represenatives 
of the best high schools of the country. 

Ordinarily it is a difficult task to write the history of a Fresh 
man Class, but this is a most extraordinary class, and the task is an easy and 
l)leasant one. We began to make history the day college opened. 

Our entrance to the majestic halls of M. S. C. was most auspicious. We were 
gazed at — and who does not like to be admired? The Sophomore Class acted as 
a recei)tion committee and you may rest assured that we were well received. Soon 
came informal invitations that the president of the "Soph" Class would like to 
meet all "Rats" at the college auditorium. Probably the most interesting event of 
the evening was the reading of the famous "Rat Rules." These rules were not so 
rigid as we had expected, but we were told to obey them implicitly. The "Sophs" 
]H-oved to be charming hosts. The next day all "Rats" ai)peared on the campus 
demurely wearing little white caps, black ties, etc. 

Following the custom of former years, that of holding inter-class athletic 
contests between the Freshmen and Sophomores, it was announced that the annual 
cane rush would be held between the halves of the Virginia Military Institute foot- 
ball game. On that memorable afternoon, the Freshies, with grim determination 
written on their faces, waited for the hnal hour when they would achieve great- 
ness, or have greatness thrust u])on them. The Freshmen .s'tood on one end of the 
football field, while the Sophomores stood on the other. At the crack of the pistol, 
the men charged for the cane. There was one awful five minutes of ex[)ectant 
waitmg. It is enough to say that the great and glorious class of '20 won, and a 
few days later the blue and gold Bag of their class floated high over the campus. 

The date was set for the cross-country run several times, but owing to inclem- 
ent weather, it was not held till the latter part of February. Many of our stars, 
owing to other engagements, were unable to take part. The "Rats" failed to bring 
home the bacon this time, and our flag ceased to enjoy the breeze for awhile. 

One of the most successful "stunts" pulled ofif was the "Inaugural Parade" 
for the benefit of the Sophomores. This was held the day following the battalion's 
.successful march in the Inaugural Parade on March fifth. Official orders were 
issued for the Freshmen to get in trim and be inspected by the Sophomore staff, 
composed of Generals, Commandants, Admirals, Majors and Adjutants, all of 
these important offices being assumed by capable "Sophs." We were made to pass 
in review before the staff several times, present arms to the Sophomore flag and 
do other "humiliating" things. This afifair furnished no end of amusement to 
spectators, Sophomores and Freshmen alike. 

No other Freshman Class has contributed so many excellent men to athletics. 
They. are making brilliant records in all phases of college sports. We have stars 
that any college or university in the country might well be proud of. 

The personnel of the Freshman Class is so high-toned and cultured in every 
way, that the class compels the respect of both faculty and student body.

This youth, after being graduated from the lUisiness 
High School of Washington, 1). C. decided that a l)usi- 
ne.ss career was lo(j slow for him, and chose farming as 
his profession. He wandered out to Maryland State 
and joined the honorable Two- Year Agricultural Class. 
"Joe" is a specialist in skipping classes, and we must con- 
fess we admire him in getting away with it. Whenever 
there is a loud noise, Becker is always there, lint this

that the youngster will lie a successful farmer.

A. M. in order to catch a car to College Park to be 
among his classmates during daylight. These earl> 
hours never affect Jack, as he is undoubtedly considered 
the handsomest gentlemen in the class. For two long 
years Professor Beckenstrater has endeavored to drill 
into Andy's head the principles of fruit growing. Andy's 
chief hobbies are forgetting to come to College at least 
once a week, and ne\er to be in the \icinity of College 
during examination week. 

So long, F)oyd. may your fruit orchards bring to you 
lappiness and riches.

the ladies which is never satisfied. "Fraz" made his 
appearance at M. .S. C. in the fall of 1(^15. being as well 
contented as a kitten by the tireside. He entered the 
Freshman Class, but ninht studying did not agree with 
him, and he visited the Sub-Freshman Class, where he 
decided that the "Twi) \'ear .\ggies" were the men for 
him.

"Mac", tlie Secretary of our Class, comes from Bel 
Air. which, he says, is somewhere in Harford county. 
Just why "IMac" stayed here last summer and worked at 
the Experiment Station has always been a mystery, but 
the other station workmen say he had the habit of 
suddenly disappearing and "hitting" the pike for Berwyn 
Heights. 

"Mac" is also a great pool "shark", and can generally 
be found in the pool room after supper, where he 
"trims" evervbodv that doesn't "trim" him.

"Steve", (ilherwise known as "Smiling Jim", is the 
athlete of cur class. He prepared at Baltimore City 
College, and in 1915 drifted to Maryland State to show 
his mental and physical abilities. "Steve" represented 
his College on the football, track and lacross squads, 
and if "Curley" doesn't succeed in getting him back to 
lake a four-year course, there will be a missing link 
in his chain of athletics. "Steve" never spends a week 
end at College— Baltimore and the ladies are his favorite 
pastimes. 

So long. Jim. may you ever prosper.

part in both social and athletic activities in the College, 
and has lieen a niemlier of the track team. He was one 
of the victors over the University of Pennsylvania last 
spring, and there proved his athletic ability. After 
"Jinnny's" literary ability was discovered, he was unani-

lo go without supper to catch a car to town to bring a

®ut0-f^ar (EiuBB BtBlora 




N September. 1916, according to the schedule, the College year 
1)0^^111, and with it the present class of the Two- Year Course. 
True, some of the fellows delayed a few days to take another 
goodbye from the loved ones at home. So the first week we spent 
greeting new arrivals, giving the hearty handshake, and hearing 
the cheery voice singing out, "Hello, Jim. Glad to see you back! 
O O O How's everything?"" 

Having settled down to respective sections, the next thing of 
importance was the election of class officers, and so in October, 1916, after hear- 
ing orations that would put Cicero and Demosthenes to shame as to the wonderful 
worth of the res])ective candidates, vote was taken and the present officers were 
elected. 

Although our class is rather small, it entered in s])irit into the various school 
activities, namelv, track, fo(jtball, baseball and literary w(jrk, and sb.owed its 
\v(M'th many times. 

It mav be noted that in the fall oi 1915 our class won the championship for 
interclass f(jotball. We defeated every class, with the excei)tion of the Seniors, 
and the reason we did not defeat them was because they had no team. Our 
entire class was chosen to go to J'^altimore for Maryland \Veek, and here again 
we showed our ability. \Ve graded and packed apples and advertised "Old 
Maryland State" to the farmers and merchants of Maryland. C)ur class is 
somewhat dilTerent from two-year classes of old, inasmuch as most of us are 
from the city instead of being from the farm. We have showed that the boys 
Irom the city can turn out to be just as good farmers as the "hayseeds" from 
the country. 

We are as the father of old, who told his son to try to break the bundle of 
sticks. "United we stand," and all through life's battle we will stand together. 
I am sure that whenever any two of us meet again there will be the same 
cheery greeting and heartv handshake as of yore. 

Historian.

(E. Irrnmrs (En-lEituratinual 








J 1 [*^ scholastic year of K^i^-i/ marks a new e]ioch in the history 
of the Maryland State College. ( )ur College has become a co- 
educational institution. 

l-"or a number of years we liave realized that this event was to 
take place, but not until last year when the \"ice-President in- 
formed us that there would Ijc thirteen and one-half co-eds at M. 
S. C. in the fall of K^if) did wc fully realize the significance of it. 
bOr some tiiue there was doubt as to the accviracy of the figures 
and no little speculation as to what the appearance of the half would be, but as 
our \'ice-President had made careful calculations and quite a bit of research, we 
were not at all inclined to dispute his word. However, only time could solve the 
problem for us. .\fter waiting i)atiently all the summer we found that the fates 
had not dealt as kindly with us as we had exi)ected. CJ)nly one co-ed had matricu- 
lated. Later in the year another was enrolled, but we are still short of our alloted 
number and, though we regret it, it seems that we must await another year to 
bring State any more co-eds. 

It is to be hoped that not luany years will have passed before the number of 
girls at M. S. C., as students, will have reached a size such as will justify the 
erection of a (Hrl's Dormitory. We expect to see courses in Home Economics 
and Domestic Science installed in the next few years, and then the people of 
Maryland can look to the State College for the education of their daughters as 
well as of their sons. 

Should more girls be enrolled, the College will be indeed fortunate if they are 
of the same refined manners and sterling character as the two now on her roster. 

IVc take our Jials off to you. Miss (cs) Co-Eds.

As T sat in the hammock, friends, 
C)ne moonlight night in May, 

I seemed to be in a stupor, 
I'or I knew not what to say. 

My hps were trembhng terribly, 
My heart was beating fast ; 

I knew if I could win her. 
Our love was sure to last. 

She sat there looking into my eyes ; 

Her face was calm, she did not stir. 
She had me where I had to speak, 

So T ])ro])osed to her. 

She uttered not a word to me, 

Why not I cannot tell ; 
But soon she gave a little sigh, 

And in my arms she fell. 

I knew right then that she was mine, 

And 1 began to smile, 
P'or, after all, it seemed to me 

'i'hat life was sure worth while. 

So, friends, you all remember. 

When I am far away. 
Though I may lose your friendship, 

I'll not lose that night in May.

O LIKU'IT.XAX r licorgc 1. Kverctl, the (lc\ uldpiiu iii of the .Militan- Department 
of -M. S, C. to its present high grade of efficiency, is clue. Although he has 
only heen connected with the College for little over a year, the results he has ac- 
complished deserve praise and commendation. 

Lieutenant Everett entered West Point in 1903, graduating four years later as si.vty-tifth 
in a class of one hundred and twelve. He was then commissioned as a Second Lieutenant 
in the 28th Infantry, U. S. A., stationed at Fort Snelluig. During his stay at Fort Snelliug, 
he served in the maneuvers at San Antonio for nine months, at the time of the first trouhle 
of the United States with Mexico. 

In December, 1912, Lieutenant Everett sailed for China. Fie served there with the 
Chinese Expeditionary Force until May, 1913. Six years of hard and diligent work was 
surely worth rewarding, and Lieutenant Everett received his commission as First Lieutenant, 
and was assigned to the 8th Infantry. He then went with his regiment to the Department 
of Mendanao in the Moro country of the Philippines. He was next stationed at Luzon. 
While at Luzon, he was transferred to the 24th Infantry and returned with it to the United 
States in September, 1915. The 24th was stationed at the Presidio, San Francisco. In 
January, 1916, he was ordered by the War Department to do duty at M. S. C. as Professor 
of Military Science and Tactics. 

That Lieutenant Everett's worth is fully appreciated can readily be seen by the fact that he is 
listed as a Captain in the latest Congressional Record. This is an honor Lieutenant Everett 
fully deserves. 

Note. — As the Reveille goes to press, we are informed that George T. Everett has re- 
ceived his Captain's Commission, and we wish to extend our hearty congratulations to Cap- 
tain Everett. It is but another case in which merit is finally rewarded.

HE need of a great military preparedness for the protection of 
our country is uppermost in the minds of the people of America 
at the present time. The great war in Europe has scattered 
to the four winds all the fond hopes of universal peace. The 
brotherhood of man seems more remote than ever before. The 
United States must iire])are for what is inevitably coming. War 
O O O ^''^' soon have our great country in its hideous grasp. If prepa- 
ration is not begun now, it will be too late. 
Maryland State College has been doing its bit since 1858. Year by year 
men trained in military science and tactics have gone forth to battle for their 
])lace in the world. Now they are ready to hght for their country, and they 
hght for the honor and name of their Alma Mater. 

It is to be regretted that limited time ])revented Maryland State College 
from establishing a Reserve Officers' Training School. However, beginning 
the next college vear, this school will be started. The student entering the 
Reserve Officers' 1^-aining School, on graduation becomes a reserve officer by 
applying to the War Department. A reserve officer is at all times subject 
to be called into the service of the E^nited States when war is impending. He 
will then enjoy the ])rivileges and remuneration of a Unitd States army officer. 
Aside from the value the military training of a college man is to his coun- 
trv, there is the value of this training to the individual. 'Tt systematically 
develops the body, and it educates the mind along a consistent line for the double 
purpose of clear thinking and effective, practical work." This enables a man 
to pick and command men and himself. 

Maryland State College ap])reciates the great work accomplished by the 
men who founded the Morrill Act. Our Government's training has made us 
stronger and better men, ready, when duty calls, to go forth and fight.

Ever}- day throughout the years 

To he an able soldier 

And a warrior without fears. 

W'^e ha\e no wish for war, 
We ha\'e no wish for greed; 

J)Ut we go to call of C(nmtry,

Those blades with blood may ru>t, 
But Maryland's boys are faithful 

To their country and their trust.

CHARLES L. STROHM 

Band Inftructcr 



Charles L. Strohm, our bandmaster, is 
a man worthy of the respect and admira- 
tion of everyone. As a musici;in he need 
acknowledge no man in Maryland as his 
superior and few as his i^eers. Year 
after year he has taken green material 
in the fall and in the course of the year 
has molded it into a real band. He has 
been the life and soul of the various 
musical organizations around Alaryland 
State College for the past five years. 

To gain a knowledge of his ability to 
play and teach music one need but hear 
our Cadet Band, lead by Mr. Strohm, 
strike up some stirring air. No red- 
! 'ooded being could listen to the music 
rendered by Charles L. and his wards 
without being thrilled 1)\- it. 

Air. Strohm has proved himself a 
friend of the Class of 1917. He has 
rendered us valuable serxice on several 
occasions In- giving freely of his time 
and talent, and though we cariuot ade- 
(piritely show (jur a])preciation, we hold 
a warm friendship for our benefactor, 
and wish, for the sake of our yVlma 
-Mater, that she may l(jng have the serv- 
ice of such an able musician and such a 
wortlu' man.

A bu^le call is sounded clear, 

A silence sweeps the hall ; 
It is the lonel}' TAPS we hear — 

The last-blown bugle call. 

It tells us that our day is done, 
That night was made for rest. 

Though hard we've tried, yet failed today 
Tomorrow do our best. 

Sometimes that call is sounded o'er 

The broken sod, w here lies 
A lad who for his country fought 

.\n(l for his country dies. 

But now we bid that call good-bye. 

When next we hear it made 
It may l)e on the battleheld 

Beneath ( )1(1 (dory's shade. 

If so, 'tis well; we'll falter not. 

But battle for the right. 
Until the final TAPS shall sound 

The (ireat laernal Night.

HE Young Men's Christian Asso- 
ciation stands for all that is best 
in college. It stands for all that 
is best in college life, athletics, 
Hterarv activities, earnest collegiate work 
and daily Bible study. The Y. M. C. A. 
stands for the well-balanced man. The 
college activities tend to develop the 
mental and physical, so it remains for 
this Association to emphasize the spirit- 
ual side of college life. 

Through the Y. M. C. A., more than 
any other intercollegiate organization or 
activity, the student comes t(j a con- 
sciousness that he is a part of a great 
world brotherhood. The World's Chris- 
tian Student Federation, of which our 
local Association is an integral part, in- 
cludes the Christian student movements 
of forty-two nations. In the United 
States and Canada there are 1487 local 
student Associations, with an aggregate 
membership of 130,300 men and women. 
When a man becomes a member of the 
Y. M. C. A. at Maryland State College, 
he also becomes a part of this great 
world movement. 

Anv man of good moral standing, either student or member of the Faculty, 
is entitled to general membershij). The ])urpose of the y\ssociation is to unite 
the men of the .School who seek to realize the ideals of Jesus in their own lives 
and characters and to furtlier these ideals in Maryland State College and the 
world. 

In order to accom]ilish this imrjiose ihe Association promotes many differ- 
ent activities. At the o])ening of School each year receptions and social events 
])rovide a means for new students to meet and become acquainted with the 
Faculty and old students. Bible study classes are organized and promoted. 
Every student is urged to join a class, for it is through a systematic study of the 
Word of God that we come to know Him and His will for our lives. The mid- 
week devotional meeting of the Y. M. C. A. has won an important place in the 
life of Maryland State College. The pur])ose of the meeting is to deepen the 
spiritual life of Christian men and to win the uninterested to active allegiance 
to the Kingdom of Ciod. 

With its A'aried activities and different committees the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association offers a unique opportunity to every student who wants to 
make his college davs count for real usefulness. We have but few privileges 
to sell to our members, but we have a program of unselfish service in which we 
want every man in M. S. C. to enlist. You will find in the Association plan or 
organization a splendid opportunity to develop the best there is in you, and in 
doing the work of the Association you will find the highest type of college 
fellowship.

T is the o])inion of most college men who have made a successful 

start in life that a man who has neglected to take an active part 

in the social life at college, and whose social habits are unde- 

\elo|)ed, will lie greatly handicapped in his attempt to succeed. 

Nobo(l\' knows more of the advantages and value of the 

social life at Maryland State College than do the graduating 

men. The position in college life of some of these men was 

the direct result of the active part taken in college society. 

It was through this class that M. S. C.'s half -century-old reputation for the 

"jolly good time" social affairs was upheld and bettered. 

It would be a wise plan for the few lower classmen who are not taking 
advantage of the excellent oi)i)ortunities which are offered at their yVlma Mater 
to develop themselves along social lines, to wake up and gain that knowledge 
and develop those habits which will have to be developed sooner or later. The 
majority of men going through college never know what definite line of work 
they will pursue until after they have completed their college career. They 
never know but what the ])Ositions offered them will require that they make 
speeches, attend banquets, rece])tions and other functions which will test their 
social capacit}'. 

The opportunities for the develo])ing of men along social lines can only be 
realized by stating the work of the organizations which tend to put the bright 
polish on the rough material. 

The Rossbourg Club, the oldest organization at M. S. C, was formed for 
the sole purpose of holding a number of dances each year. This club is known 
by thousands of the fair sex as giving them the most enjoyable time had by them 
at anv dance. Every student is asked to become a member of the club, and to 
do everything possible toward making it a success. During the season of 
1916-17 the club witnessed the most successful season in its history. One 
informal and five formal dances were given in the College auditorium, and all 
but a verv small portion of the student body enjoyed at least one evening in the 
midst of the ])rettiest maidens ever gathered together on one occasion. 

The hearty supi>ort given this organization by the Faculty and their wives 
was a noticeable feature at every dance, and a large i)art of its success this 
season is attributed to this fact. 

Although the Rossbourg Club has done excellent work in developing social 
men, the Y. M. C. A. entertainments, College concerts, fraternity and inter- 
fraternitv dances and smokers, the meetings of the literary societies and their 
inter-soc'ietv debates, which were all linked in between the Rossbourg dances, 
have been 'doing their share of this valuable work. Hardly a week went bv 
which did not offer one or more o])portunities for every student to train himself 
along social lines. 

M. .S. C. can be proud of her organizations and the benefits which are being 
derived from them bv the majoritv of the student body.

HI^ desire of this (organization is to have only those men for its members 
who are truh' interested in the work, and who, reahzing the value of 
literar)- work, are willing to put forth every effort to benefit themselves 
and the societ}' as a whole. 
At the beginning of this college year it was decided by the society to meet 
bi-weeklv. but the great interest taken by the members soon brought about 
week!}- meetings. Eiterary programs are rendered at each meeting. C'n several 
occasions members of the b^aculty have favored the society wdth interesting talks, 
ixit the maiorit\' of the ])rograms have been rendered entirely by the student 
members. The programs have consisted of talks, debates, readings and other 
forms of literar\' work. Several times the meetings have been conducted accord- 
ing to the rules of the United States Senate, many difhcult problems being 
threshed out. 

The New Mercer won the annual inter-society debate held in March, 191 7, 
and by so doing gained the honor of having its name engraved on the silver 
cup offered to the society winning the debate on three occasions. Messrs. 
Engle and Downin rei)resented the society in the annual debate, and deserve 
great credit for the convincing manner in wdiich they brought forth their argu- 
ments. The New Mercer not only won the debate, but one of its members, 
Mr. M. D. Engle, was judged the best individual debater, and was awarded the 
alumni medal for excellency in debate.

HAT the Poe Literary Society does not possess in niemhersliip it has in 

quaht\. While charity has been shown in the selection of its members, 

the main factor is scrutiny. The constitution of the Society limits the 

membership of the organization U) twenty in number. Hence many 

have been called, but few chf)sen. 

Since reorganization in the fall of 1915 under the present name, the Poe 
Literary Society has become more and more a literary center. During this year 
the meetings have been characterized b\' comprhensive programs. These pro- 
grams have inxolved debates, ]-«resentati()n of current events, strictly !mprom])tu 
speaking, discussion on [.'arliamentary ])rocedure, two series of lectures on 
"(jreat Men" and "Efficiency." a mock court, a House of Representatives and 
addresses from the Faculty. 

While the Society's representatives lost in the inter-society debate this year, 
the Society considers that no criterion of its achievements. Every member has 
been given op])ortunity to improve his ability to speak, and all have benefited 
thereby. Such results are more permanent than a single exhibition of oratory 
from the stage. Only in future years will these inestimable benefits be fully 
realized, and only then, when its members have entered the great forum of life, 
will their training received in the Poe Literary Socitey be duly appreciated.

COLLl'XiE ])a|)er is the medium of news lor the college student. 
A good college paper should be an impartial word picture of stu- 
dent life and activities. College news should be given in a pleas- 
ing way to the student body and Alumni, and there is also a place 
in a good college jiaper for bits of local wit and humor. A college 
])a])er is solely the property of the student body, and their views, 
ideas, and activities should be given freely and v\'ithout prejudice. 

It is along these lines that the \'Vi-:ekly has been conducted 
since it was founded in October, 1914. Prior to that date there was a sadly inade- 
([uate little ])ai)er ])ublishe(l here at College, which did not, by an}' means, meet the 
needs of the student body. 

The Wkekly has defects, but they are being corrected as rapidly as possible. 
It is the expectation of those in charge to enlarge it in the near future to an eight- 
page pa])er. This can readily be done, provided the student body give their unre- 
strained support. At present the paper is edited entirely by the students, with 
faculty su])ervision. This makes the paper what it should be — a real college paper, 
edited, managed and supported by the student body. There is no reason why the 
])a])er should not be enlarged to an eight-page weekly. 

For many years the old Triangle was not self-supporting. It did not fill the 
needs of the student body, and they did not feel any concern in giving it either 
linancial or moral support. The Wkekly, however, has met the needs of the stu- 
dents, and has become a self-supporting periodical. The paper in the past has been 
well edited, containing much college news, editorials, and also bits of wit and 
humor picked up around the campus. From time to time new features have been 
added, each change having bettered the ])ublication. 

The Editorial Staff is com])osed of live, earnest men, every one of whom has 
the interest of the Wkf.kly at heart. These men want to see the college paper 
enlarged, and are making an earnest effort to accomplish that end. In the ])ast 
there has not been room for the proper amount of Alumni news, and the news and

It is tittiiii^ and proper to offer as a pre- 
lude to Athletics a tribute to the man who 
has inspired our teams to vict'rry and in- 
stilled within us the true meaning of loy- 
ah\- to our Athletics. We ha\e watched 
him rahnly and persistently strive for an 
ideal, for clean Athletics and fair i)iay. 
lAidence of his unusual ability becomes 
more pronounced each 3ear. At no time 
in the history of our College has the in- 
terest in sports been so marked. Faculty, 
students, Alumni and the peo(>!e of our 
State have been thrilled with the victories 
of our teams. The Press has been unani- 
mous in its ])raise, and has on several oc- 
casions lauded the coaching system of 
Maryland State. The future is rich in 
])Ossibilities, and with implicit conhdence 
we intrust the destinies (_)f our Athletics 
to "Curb" Wvvd. 



"ipar Siiff" 

Perhaps you wonder why such a "mug" 
as this appears here, but as "IJear," oi- 
Ruff, as he is sometimes called, was on: 
of the best athletes in Maryland, it is not 
imprcjper to gi\e him a word of recog 
nition. A few vears ago "liear" wa.-< 
wearing the "old gold and black" in a 
manner that would do credit to any col- 
lege. In football he was among the best ; 
in track he showed his heels to many of 
the best men in this section ot the coun- 
try. Though "Bear" has not p.'Lrtici])ated 
in athletic contests in the last two years 
because of old injuries, the fall of kjiO 
found him on the gridiron helping "Cur- 
ley" turn out the greatest team that ever 
represented a Marvland college.

HE BES'J' record and 
briefly the fooi-bal 



strongest team in the history of the college — that snnis up 
;eason of igi6. Startmg tiie year with the hardest schedule 



ever attempted by a college in Maryland, it seemed as if the eleven would find 



some rough sledding; howe\er, it hmshed with six \ icti 



and two defeats, the 



.■ak 



luld ha\e turned 



(leieats Ijeing by such narrow margins that almost any kind 
them into victories. 

The team was handicapped considerablx at the beginning of the year by having its 
two opening games cancelled. Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Pennsylvania .Military 
College, listed for the two preliminary contests, broke their contracts and State was com- 
jjellert to go into the games with Dickinson on October 6 and Navy October il as the opening 
of its season. The prospect did not look any too good, but the eleven came through, won 
from Dickinson in a brilliant struggle, 6 to o, and lost to Xavy by 7 to 14, in a tight which 
was won by the Navy on a lucky break in the first iwn nunutes nf ])lay. 

Following the Navy game, the \ irginia .Military Institute ajjpeared at College Park and 
in one of the most brilliant coiulicts of the year lost to Slate by y to 15. The game brought 
out the best in l)oth teams .111(1 ne\er before was sta.ged a gridiron meeting at C(jllege Park 
so edifying to spectators and so productive of brilliant i)lay. State took the lead at the 
beginning of the struggle and when Jamie Smith kicked a gf)al from the field after about 
three minutes of play, V. M. 1. scored a safety about two minutes later, and shortly after- 
ward got a touchdown which i)laced it in the lead by 9 to 3. l-'rom that time on Stale 
braced, its defense was imi;regnable and lirewer's two field goals ,ind ,1 touchdown pniduced 
the ]Kjints which brought victory. 

lla\erford made its first vi^it to Cullege P.irk for a game on October _'5. It caught the 
.State team with two substitutes in the hackfield and soniewhat overcondeiil : those things. 
coui)led with the fact that llaverford itself had a splendidly coached and clever eleven, 
caused State's downfall by the narrow m;irgin of one iioint, 7 to h. St;ite got going well 
in the last quarter and IlhI the contest gniu- three more minuter, wnuld ha\t' won. 

St. John's came ne.xt on the schedule and State's usually fearsome rival pro\ed easy. 
The score was 31 to 6. Annapolis had a heavy team, which was fairly well drilled, 
drilled, but it could not cope with the fast attack against which il found itself struggling 
before the contest was many minutes old. Maryland scored in the lirst four minutes, and 
at the end of the first half the count was hS to f). St. John's diily touchdown came near 
the middle of the see<ind <|uarter. two long end runs cniisccuti vely ])utting the ball across. 
In the second half St. John's could niike 110 headway ami its defense crumbled completely. 
So a])])arent was tlie supei"i"rit\- of tin State ti-ani tlial the second half was cut ten minules 
shi;rt. 

Much anticipated had been the struggle with Catholic University, and when it arrived it 
was about all that had been lot^ked for. and maybe a little mf)re than the Washington insti- 
tution had expected. C. U. scored in the first three minutes, when one of its halfbacks 
liicked up a fuml)le and ran three-fourths the length of the field for a touchdown. The goal 
was not kicked and State practically started the game with a 6 to o handica]). Potli teams 
kicked a goal from the field in the second quarter, and the half ended 9 to 3 in favor 
of C. U.. In the third quarter, though, the State backs carried the ball for consistent gains, 
which resulted in a touchdown after they had lieen twice held within three feet of the goal 
line. The secondary defense of the Washingtonians had been drawn in by the battering, 
and when Smith changed his tactics, throwing a forward i)ass after a double pass, there 
was nobody between Rich and the goal line. P>rewer soon after that kicked another goal 
from the field and the game ended with the count standing i.^ to in favor of State. 

The eleven journeyed to New Vork the following Saturday to meet New York Uni- 
versity. Newspaper predictions the morning of the contest had New York U. winning 
easily, but the end of the struggle found Maryland's representative institution with 10 points 
and New^ York U. 7. State made nineteen first downs against four for the northerners, but 
fumbles and penalties ])rcventcd a greater amount of scoring. 

For the entire season the team had been preparing for the game with Hopkins on 
Thjuiksgiving Day. It had bent its efforts along every line towartl that particular contest. 



166 



and while it had plawd l)rilliaiU foul had in prrx ions, si ruL^.tilcs had ready ne\ er aiipcared 
at its l)cst. Ilopkins had a pciwe-rtul, iicaxy line whiidi wa.s considered in\-ulnerahle and 
ahont the same backtield as that which had carried it thmnH'li a \ictorious season in 1915. 
ddie resnlt of the game need not he dwelt ui)on here. Suffice it to say that at the end 
State's overjoyed rooters sat themseUes hack to regale their minds with a 54 to o score 
with which their team had oxcrwdielmcd the i'altnnoreans. One paragraph from the acconnt 
of the game in the Baltimore Sun explains e\erything fidly. liere it is; 

"'J"he College Park aggregation had everything; lloi)kins had nothing. It was the most 
one-sided game seen at Hcmewood in many a day, and the Black and Blue was hopelessly 
outclassed from the first kick-off. With as fine a rpiartet of slashing, plunging l)acks as 
ever has heen seen nn a State gridiron, and a line that charged like the hlack watch, the 
College Park eleven uncovered an attack iha.t swept Hopkins to all corners of the field. 
I'letcher and I'.rewer, the visitors' scinitilating halfbacks, tore through the Black and iUue 
line and around the ends almost at will, keeping their feet with remarkable persist<'nce." 

The seasrai marked the successful ad\ance of the State team into a class in which it had 
never before played. h^'riendships were formed with colleges with which iMaryland's in- 
stitution had not previously played. New players were developed, the advent of several men 
in the h'reshman class doing much to aid in the building of a successful combination. 
Brewer, who came from St. .Mban's School of Washington ; Fletcher, the year before at 
Dean Academy of Franklin^ Mass.; Michael, former Davis and Flkins fullback; Macdonald, 
Central High School captain and halfback in 1915 aided in bolstering the backheld and Inti , 
another J^'reshman, (le\eloped fast in the tackle's jiosition. 

The features of the \'ear would be hard to define. Jamie Smith de\eloped into a fine 
quarterback; "L'ntz" lirewer and Metcher were as good at least as any other halfbacks in 
the state; Oberlin j)layed his usual star game at tackle a.iid end, ;ind Williams did ex- 
cellent work at center. 

The successes of the team as a whole resulted in obtaining games with Princeton and 
Penn State, both of which expressed pleasure in taking on ^Maryland State. Particularly 
is it worth mentioning in this connection that the State players earned for themselves 
a reputation for fairness and straight-forward play that was commented upon far and near. 
The team and the season reflected gread credit upon the college, players and alumni alike.

(Haptain ®b^rUu 

Strength, courage, generalshi]) ; but the 
greatest of tliese is generalship. 

"()l>ie" is, to a marked degree, the i)Ossessor 
of all three of these characteristics which go 
to make a truly great football player. 

The hrst two are common to all followers 
of the gridiron, but it is the ])ossession of the 
third, and the ability to make others do, that 
can come to a college athlete, the C'aptaincy ol 
the footl)all team. 

It is needless to recount the man\- instances 
when "Obie's" leadership has been the decid- 
ing factor in giving State a \ ictor}-. Since

Posey had no more than arrived at College 
in the fall of 1912, than he had donned a foot- 
ball uniform for the hrst time in his life, "liig 
Hoy" went on the field and started fighting and 
he simply couldn't be held down. As a resuh 
he soon earned a position on the "X'arsity", 
where he played at guard, tackle, or in the 
backfield. 

"Big Boy" has been wearing State colors 
for five years, and he has given his l>est to the 
team on every occasion. 

i\.gain merit has been awarded ; Posey has 
been elected to the Captaincy of the 1917 team, 
and under his guidance we feel safe in i)re- 
dicting another trc^phy for old i\tAioi.A.\i) 

STATE.

"Awh" WtUianta 

"Avey" asked someone what a football was 
when he dropped in at M. A. C. back in 1912, 
but now he knows, and in learning" he proved 
that he could pass a pigskin a little better than 
anyone else at Maryland State. "Avey" came 
out for football in his SophouKjre ^■ear, but it 
was not until his Junior year that he was found 
bending over a football as the center of one of 
the fastest teams M. A. C. ever knew. Sus- 
taining an injury in the season of 1915, Wil- 
liams showed his loyalty to the team by giving 
up his school work and a part of the 191 5 sea- 
son to undergo an operation which would put 
him in his old form. Everyone who saw Wil- 
liams playing at center in the closing games of 
last season knows that Chandler Sprague made 
an irretrievable error when he neglected to 
give "Avey" center on the alaryland af-l-star 

MYTHICAL. 





"l^rt" Qlnggttia 

"Bert" disjjlayed the ])ro[)er sinrit by going 
out for football in his Freshman year. For 
four years he has held his own, and as a man 
that is always in the game and fighting con- 
stantly, he has no peer. 

"Bert" plays halfback, and a better line 
plunger is not to be found. He hits the line so 
hard that after the game with New York Uni- 
xersity one of the New^ York papers pro- 
claimed him as the "human bullet." It further 
stated that he was one of the best ground 
gainers seen in New York in many years. 

"Bert" leaves this year, and all M. S. C. 
gives him up with sincere regret. 



173 







"®ar" olarbuttnu 

Tarbutton ajtpeared in a football suit for the 
lirst time in the fall of K)!^. He was put on 
the scrubs and almost immediately was dubbed 
"Tar"— because he was so hard to "go thru' " 
— and the cognomen has stuck to him. He 
coN'ered himself with <.^l<)r\- on the \ arsitv in 
his So])homore vear and \erv nearly won a 
State cham])ionshii) game In- individual play- 
ing when he smeared practically ever}- ])lay 
that St. John's aimed at his end of the hue. 
.Since then, he has ])!ayed regularly at guard. 
He has ne\er l)een known to lose his head on 
the held, and if an\- man could be depended 
u])on to play the game with his whole heart and 
soul it was "Tar." In losing "Tar" we are 
losing one of the best and most consistent 
la\ers that e\er wore the Al. S. C colors. 



"lobbu " imirk 

In the fall of 1914, "Hobby" made his hrst 
ai)j)earance on the M. S. C gridiron. He soon 
won a i)osition at halfback and i)la}ed a big 
])art in e\ery game in which he ])articii)ated. 
In the Hoi)kins game of 1914 "Hobby" scored 
the only touchdown made b\' our team and this 
gave M. .S. C. the cham])ionship of the State. 
So brilliant was "Hobby's" v\-ork in 1914 that 
two lialtimore papers ])laced him as halfback 
on the "All Maryland Team." 

During his last two years "Hobln" i)ro\efl 
himself as valuable in one position as in an- 
other by hlling in wherever he was needed — 
at halfback, fullback, or end. In IQ15 he wa^ 
again chosen a member of the "All Maryland 
hdeven," and in ir)i6 he was given a ])Osition at 
halfback on a team picked by the Washington 
lepers. 

"Hobby" ended his football days ar M. S. C. 
by scoring the last touchdown made by his 
team in kjiO. His value to the team will be 
more fully realized than ever when an eiTort 
is made to fill his place next fall.

two seasons he has shown his ability and knowledge of the game b\' twice being 
gi\'en the ])osition of guard on ihe makylxxd all-star p:levkn. 

Though "Kish" has recei\ed hard knocks while playing football, sustaining 
se\ere injuries sexeral times, he has stuck b}- the game, and his four "A-I's" indi-

The four men jiictured at the top of this jtas^e compose the mrealest l)ack- 
tield that e\er ])laye(l on a C(jlle^e team in Maryland. A wonderful tribute Avas 
paid them when a well known C(xich and referee in this State said, "The hackheld 
that played against Hopkins on last Fhanksgix ing i3av is the greatest that e\er 
])layed in the State of Maryland, w ith the ])Ossible exce])tion of the Na\y." 

The above assertion is b}- no means an exaggeration of the abilily of our 

hackheld. S])eed, brains, accuracy, decision, coolness and "fight," the essentials 

of a good backfield, are represented above. In every department of the game this 

backfield is unexcelled by any backfield Maryland State e\er had. Punting, line 

plunging, footwork, backing up the line, interference — all the rec[uisites of a good 

backfield were present in the quartette that plaved behind the line for State last 
fall. 

All of these men are Freshmen, except Smith, who is a Sophomore, and 

although their work last fall was wonderful, even greater things are expected of 

them in years to come. With such men on her football team. State need have no 

fear of the future. All hats off to the greatest backfield Maryland has ever known.

• BALL 



laa^ball g^^ann, 191 T 




HEN the bugle call was sounded for candidates for the baseball 
team for 1917, there were more likeh- -looking youngsters that 
answered the call than ever before in the history of Old Mary- 
land. It is true that only a few of the old men are again to be 
found on the field, but l^errick will continue to i)lay hl'^ old-time 
l)osition in center held, and when the necessit\" arises, mav be 
^^^ expected to do his share of the pitching. 

' ' Chichester, Kncxle and Alornhinweg are again ex])ecled to fig- 

ure in the big game, and at the rate that Riggs has started oh:", it is imi)ossible to 
]iredict just where he will stop. 

()berlin, who played first, and Dearstyne, who played second, bofh regulars 
(ju last }ear's team, did not report for this spring's jiractice, and their absence is 
sure to be felt b}- the team, as it was almost im])ossible for a l)all to gel thr(jugh 
this pair. 

Michael, who made his initial a])])earance in athletics at i\I. S. C. last fall, is 
sure to cut quite a figure in the scoring this year, and with the splendid stick work 
of Hobb}- Derrick, we naturalK' ex]iect the long end oi the score in most of the 
games to be played. 

Mornhinweg, the s])eed demon of State, has at last accjuired contrc^l, and an_\- 
team that i)redicts a double \ ictorv off of buddy's deliver}- is sure to ha\e another 
tune U) whistle after the season is over. 

As yet the team has not been seen in actual competition, as the game with 
Colby was canceled. 

The status of the team and what we ex])ect of it, may well be com]ireliended 
when such teams as Cornell, Tufts, and Penn State, as well as the state teams to 
be j)layed for the championshi]). apjiear on our schedule. 

It is now too early to ])re(lict just what will be the outcome of the season, but 
when it is understood just what constitutes a ball ])layer at M. S. C, and the 
coach that we have to train them, — well, it is useless to say just what Old Mary- 
land expects.

"Hobby" Derrick, Captain of the 1917 
baseball team, won his "M" in his Fresh- 
man year. Then and since he has played 
a steady, consistent and heady game. He 
was the man upon whom our coach 
could always depend to play a good game 
in any position, whether it be on the 
mound or in the gardens. 

"Hobby" proved that as a pitcher he 
was not to be sneezed at when he pitched 
a sixteen-inning tie game against Dick- 
inson. This and his other performances 
in the box won him such names as "The 
Iron Man," "Old War Horse" and others 
that express the praise and admiration 
of the student body equally as well. He 
has played in the outfield in many games, 
and there he has done good work. His 
all-around playing ability, his work with 
the willow and his genial nature make 
him an admirable man for the Captainc}^ 
of the 19 1 7 team.

Api^r^rtatinu 



Followers of baseball at M. S. C. will miss two players this sea- 
son who played on the 19 16 team. These two men, Dearstyne 
and Oberlin, though in school, are prevented by more pressing 
duties from playing on the team. 

Dearstyne was a member of the team in 1914, and played a 
brand of baseball that would do credit to any collegiate team. In 
the two succeeding seasons he played his same steady game, and, 
as in the spring of 19 14, was always a world of strength with the 
stick. 

Oberlin ])layed first base for two years, and always played a 
clever, heady game, and by his seemingly unlimited supply of 
"pep" put life in the team when thev were readv to give up the 
fight. 

These two men have been valuable to our athletic department, 
and we regret that they are not to represent State in this year's 
contests.

"Hobby" goes to Tenle3'to\vn 

On every Sunday eve, 
We don't begrudge his going 

But he should know when to leave. 

He sits there by the fireside 
Till twelve o'clock or more, 

Everything is sleei)ing 

And Dad's begun to snore. 

Then he thinks al)()ut his classes 
And how he's losing sleep. 

He's missed his car to college 
So homeward he does creep. 

He wakes up in the morning 

His eyes are all aglow. 
He thinks he is at college 

But it's there he has to go. 

He reaches his dear old college 
At twelve o'clock or more, 

And instead of going to classes 
Lies down to take a snore. 

Monday has gone whizzing by, 
"Hobby" hasn't done a thing. 

The fellows used to question him, 
And this is what he'd sing: 

"I had some work at home to do, 

So could not get away, 
And for this reason only, 

I had to miss the day." 

At first this verse went very well. 

And oh, how he did smile, 
But now that everyone is wise, 

The verse is not worth while.

"UNTZ" BREWER 

Readers, this is "Untz". former star athlete 
of St. Alhans School, and known throughout 
the country as one of the hest sprinters in 
America. The trunks of medals, watches and 
other prizes that "Untz" has won on the track 
will attest his running al)ility far better than 
mere words. 

During the early part of the season Firewer 
represented State in the Junior Championslups 
at Buffalo and brougiit home first honors in 
the lifty yard dash. Later in the year he ran 
second to the renowned Loomis in several 
events. He was a member of the relay which 
defeated Penn State and ran third in tlie South 
Atlantic Relay Championships. It is our hope 
that "Untz" will wear "State Colors" next year, 
and if he does we are sure that Maryland will 
Ik- heard frcin in track circle^ in 191 7- iS.

"BERT" COGGINS 

Vlvur since lie enHTcd cnlleye in the fall of 
1913, Coggins has been a member of both the 
indoor and outdoor track squads. He has run 
on the relay in many hard races, and in every 
instance he has given his opponent the "battle 
of his life." "Bert" might well be described as 
a "nervy, heady" runner, as he always uses his 
head when running a race, and doubtlessly this 
has had much to do with his success on the 
track. Besides running on the relay. Coggins 
has done excellent work over the hurdles, and 
has often won his event "over the timbers" 
while in cnmiietition with the best men in the 
State.

"BILL" GRACE 

Have you ever seen this grin before.-' If ynu 
liave you surely will remember it. Bill can 
get into more trouble and out of it more quickly 
than any one we have ever known. Undoubt- 
edly this is due to his running ability. This 
youngster is the best quarter-miler that this 
-chool has ever had, and has been captain of the 
track team for four years. "Bill" is a good- 
hearted fellow, well-liked by all his friends, 
the ladies not being a small factor. His favorite 
hobby is to run against Gallaudcr, and it is 
iiard to say whether it is his smile or his speed 
that brings down the high honor.

"NICK" CARTER 

Beliold! Tliis is "Xick" Carter, tlie flying- 
Mercury of the Maryland State Track Team. 
He came to us in the fall of 1916, and since that 
time has heen doing good work on the track. 

In 1915 Carter, then a student of St. .MIkuVs, 
was the South Atlantic Championship ]\liler, 
and in 1916 he was a member of the St. Al- 
ban's World's Scholastic Championship Relay. 
This year he has established a new college 
record for the mile and has done good work in 
other events. 

Perhaps it is but a fancy, but we expect to 
hear of Carter's breaking his old records. We 
wish him luck. 

"JOE" CHIPMAN 

"Joe" made iiis debut in the Freshman- 
Sophomore cane rush when he sprinted ahead 
of the crowd, seized the cane and triumphantly 
carried it into the opponent's territory. Since 
that day he has made a name for himself in 
both indoor and outdoor track. He has run on 
the relay team during the entire two years that 
he has been here, and is also our best half- 
miler. It is the common opinion that Joe could 
open a jewelr_v store with the medals thai he 
has received for running.

"JIMMIE" SWARTZ 

"Jimmie" Swartz, the prize track man of the 
Two-Year Aggie class, has represented Mary-

three seasons. "Jimmie" made the fur fly in 
his sub-Freslmian year and has kept it flying 
straight through his college career. "Jim" won 
distinction for himself in '15, '16 and in '17. 
with the result that his collection of medals and 
watches would make any pawnbroker's eyes 
glitter. ]\I. S. C. regrets that he is departing

THE MEET 







®I|^ ®rark BmBoxx 




AR ])revented tlie development of the outdoor track season as had 
been jilanned. The South Athmtic Intercollegiate meet was called 
off and so were several other such competitions, because of the 
cancellations of schedules by many colleges. This caused almost 
a comi)lete cessation of track activities outdoors. The annual 
State meet was curtailed to the extent of eliminating the events 
for County Schools, and the only other games attended by the 
track scjuad were the University of Pennsylvania relay compe- 
titions. 

The first indoor meet in which a State entry participated was that held by the 
Amateur Athletic ITnion at Buffalo. Brewer competed in the sixty yards dash 
and won the Junior championship. Later in the year he got second place by about 
four inches in the Senior sixty yards dash, Joe Loomis of Chicago beating him. 
All ditring the winter Brewer competed in the dash events and never was defeated 
by any man exce])t 1-oomis, who now is generally conceded to be the best sprinter 
in the world. In the (Georgetown games Brewer won the 50 yards dash for the 
South Atlantic Intercollegiate cham'pionship, and in the George Washington meet 
got first place in the open 50 yards dash. 

In the Meadowbrook meet in Philadelphia early in March, the best indoor 
games iov the }ear, five men were sent to represent State. That those five men 
were eff"ecti\e is shown bv the fact that they brought back as prize?, two gold 
watches, a siher cu]) and four gold pen knives. 

The feature of the indoor season in track, though, was the victory of the mile 
relaA' team over Penn State in the (jeorge Washington games in Washington. 
Penn State had expected an easy win, but it met the unexpected, and Maryland 
State won by about thirty }ards. Morris ran first for State and finished ahead of 
his man about four Aards. Chi])man took uj) the running then and was followed 
by Cirace and Iirewer. When Brewer, anchor man, started his part of the event 
be was so far ahead that all he had to do was jog the distance. 

The track squad was the strongest in the history of the college. It ex]>ected 
to accomplish quite a little in the South Atlantic Intercollegiate events, but the 
calling oft" of that meet knocked in the head well-laid plans for it. However, the 
nucleus of the team will be in college three more years, and from Into, Brewer, 
Fletcher, Carter and others much mav be expected.

for himself on the team in his Junior and 
Senior years. 

While "Far" has never been a shining light

"BERT" COGGINS 

Be careful, "Monies", t\)r this is "P.ert", and 
if he spills you as he has many another, you 
will not feel so well tomorrow. "Bert" has 
been a lacrosse player ever since his freshman 
year, and the dash and punch that he exhibits 
in every game lends credit to his ability as a 
player of the game. Bert's aggressiveness and 
ability to keep men at a distance from the 
goal has insured him his position for four years, 
and next year there will be a vacancy on the 
lacrosse team which will be hard indeed to till 
as "Bert" filled it. 



^ 



"DUTCH" AXT 

Too much cannot be said of the ability of 
Dutch as a lacrosse player. Dutch began his 
lacrosse career in his Sub-Fre.shman year, and 
so successful was he that he was chosen to 
captain the team in his Freshman and Sopho- 
more years. Due to his untiring efforts, State 
has had the best lacrosse teams the past two 
years that she has had in her histor.v. "Dutch" 
is not only a star defense man, but he has that 
happy faculty of encouraging his team and 
keeping them working throughout a game. 
Although as yet only a Sophomore, we expect 
Dutch to star in many a lacrosse game in the 
future as he has in the past, before his college 
career is completed.

"JIMMY" STEVENS 

Gentle readers, do not look away in dismay, 
but take a second look at this young warrior. 
Does he not look like ambition personified ? 
Although, to appearances, it is seemingly im- 
possible, Jimmy is really intelligent and capal)le 
of action — at times. 

Seriously, though, in the two years "Jinmiy" 
has been with us, he has been a world of 
strength to the team. He is a veteran at the 
game and has proved himself to be one of the 
steadiest, cleverest and most valuable lacrosse 
players we have in college.

]■] wish to thank all of those who have aided us in our task of edit- 
ing the 1017 K'kvkillk. I'o ])rofessor Charles S. Richardson we 
are deeply indebted for his advice and help. To I'rofessors 
Anspon and Waite we acknowledge our indebtedness lor the use 
of their many attractive sceneries. Our thanks are due to Mr. 
R. C. Towles, editor of the 1916 Rkvkille, for mam^ timely and 
valuable suggestions. To Mr. William Reilly, '21, we extend our 
most ]irofound thanks for his numerous cartoons. We need say 
nothing of the quality of his M^ork. It speaks for itself. 

To the 1\)wles Studio of Washington we wish to extend our thanks for the 
prompt and efficient service which it has given us. All our dealings with it have 
been pleasant and in every way satisfactory. 

As the Class of 1917 departs, it has a feeling of ]>ride in being the first class 
to be graduated from the Maryland State College. For three years this class was 
a i)art of the Maryland Agricultural College, but as the path of progress was 
pursued, as greater heights of success and efficiency were reached, and as our 
Alma Mater's greater ambitions were realized, it became necessar}- that changes 
.should take place. Out of the ashes of the Old has arisen a New, a greater college. 
It is to her that we i)ledge our loyalty and love, not that we love M. A. C. less, but 
that we love M. S. C. more. It is because of this love that we firmly resolve that 
Maryland State shall never rue the day when she bestowed her badge of approval, 
ihe diploma, ui)on us. 

We regret that we must break the ties that bind us to each other and to our 
Alma Mater, but the call to duty rings in our ears. That call reverberates insistent, 
strong, and we must answer to its summons. 

If, i)erchance, while scanning these pages during some idle moment in future 
years some friend, some comrade, or, more especially, some classmate may live 
again in memory the good old days of 1916-1917 spent at STATE, the Board of 
l:'ditors will be most amply repaid for its labors. 

"Father, we thank thee."

About The Greenhouses We Build 



lOR over a century we have been building greenhouses. Logically, then, we 
ought to Know how greenhouses should be buiit. 
—gjj In that fifty and more years, we have built practically all kinds of glass 
filffl enclosures, from garden cold frames at a few dollars each, to conservatories, 
glass enclosed swimming pools, orchard houses and even orange grove glass-ins, 
costing up into the thousands. 

It matters not whether you want just a small house, costing but a few hundred 
ilollars, or one most pretentious; we can give you a service and a value that we 
think careful investigation will prove to you cannot be equalled. 

We should be glad to talk with you.
