Dr. Albert Fred. Woods 

President. Maryland State College of Agriculture 

Distinguislied as a scientist, acknowledged as an aole executive, and 
recognized as a friend or tne students, tnis * Reveille is dedicated 


Dr. Albert Fred. Woods 

R. ALBERT FRED \\OODS was born in Belvedere. III. on December 
25, 1866, and in his birth the scientific world received a Christmas present 
for which it has since had reason to be sincerely thankful. 

After the usual High School education. Dr. \\'oods matriculated at 

the University of Nebraska, from which he graduated with honors in 

1890, with the degree of Bachelor of Science. In 1892 he received an 

A.M. from the same university, and in 1912 Nebraska conferred upon 

him the degree of Doctor of Agriculture. After his graduation Dr. Woods was 

for several years assistant botanist at his Alma Mater. 

Notwithstanding his early success in life, those who have had the pleasure 
of meeting Mrs. Woods fully realize that the greatest accomplishment of the sub- 
ject of this sketch, during the years referred to, was his winning the hand and 
heart of Miss Bertha (jerneaux Davis, whom he married in 1898. 

In 1893 Dr. Woods was made Assistant Chief of the Division of V^egetable 
Physiology and Pathology in the United States Department of Agriculture, and 
in 1900 was advanced to the position of Assistant Chief of the Bureau of Plant 
Industry, where he remained ten years. By this time he was recognized as one of 
the leading plant pathologists and physiologists in the country. 

In 1910 Dr. Woods was appointed Dean of the College of Agriculture of the 
University of Minnesota and Director of the Experiment Station. It was in thi.s 
dual work of great responsibility, and also during his administration of the execu- 
tive affairs of the university in the ])rolonged absence of President \'incent, that 
he showed the remarkal)le executive ability which brought him to the attention of 
ihe Maryland .State Board of Agriculture when they were looking for the best- 
e(|ui])i)ed man in the country to be Bresident of the new Maryland State College. 

Dr. Woods was elected President of Maryland State College in 191 /, and was 
at the same time made executive officer of the State Board of Agriculture. 

Among the many important things accomplished by Dr. W^oods, by no means 
the least is his authorship of a large number of scientific reports, articles and bul- 
letins, and particularly his publication on the flora of Nebraska. His standing as 
a scientist led to his selection, in 1905, as official representative of the United States 
at the International Institute of Agriculture, Rome, and the International Botan- 
ical Congress, \'ienna. He is also a member of the Botanical Society of America, 
the Washington .Academy of Science, and of a number of other national scientific 
organizations. He is chairman of the Committee on Food Production and Con- 
serv'.ition of the Maryland Council of Defense, and in this capacity he rendered 
during the war signal service to the State and Nation. 

This article is not intended as a eulogy, but as the simple presentation of 
facts connected with the life of an unassuming, hard-working, able man. But if 
a eulogy of Dr. Woods were intended, no more flattering one could be offered 
than his successful administration of the affairs of Maryland State during his 
incumbency as President. He took hold of the situation here vigorously and in- 
telligently, moving slowly but surely in the matter of new policies, but working 
day and night with the sole purpose of creating a sure foundation on which to 
build a great institution of learning for Maryland on the lines of the splendid 
universities of the West. 

That foundation has been laid — strong, broad and permanent — and now the 
sni)erstructure is being built day bv day. and this in the hands of a master 
builder, who has carefully studied his plans, arranged for his material, and will 
not rest until the great work is accomplished. 

Personally, Dr. W'oods is most agreeable and sociable, and he has already 
made for himself in Maryland a host of friends who swear by him and are ready 
to back him in his work at all times. He also has the respect and friendship of 
every student in the college, and he is vitally interested in their personal and gen- 
eral affairs. 

As the poet said of the Shij) of State, it can now be said of the New Maryland 
State, "We know what master laid thy keel'* — and there is every reason to believe 
that the fate of Marvland State is safe in that master's hands.

How Sleep the Brave 

^VilliaIn Collins 

How sleep the brave who sink to rest 
By all their country's washes blest! 
When Spring, w^ith dewy fingers cold, 
Returns to deck their hallowed mold. 
She there shall dress a sweeter sod 
Than Fancy s feet have ever trod. 

By fairy hands their knell is rung. 
By forms unseen their dirge is sung; 
Here Honor comes, a pilgrim grey. 
To b.ess the turf that wraps their clay; 
And Freedom shall awhile repair. 
To dwell a weeping hermit there !

Relationship of Alumni to College 
and Students 

By E. Laurie Mitchell 

UST as the success or failure of an army depends upon the effort and 
the accompHshment of its individual units, so depends in a great measure 
the standing and the usefulness of an educational institution ujion the 
achievements of its former students and alumni, all of whom should lend 
to their Alma Plater the value of their accomplishments by keeping 
closely identified with the institution. This can be done in no better way 
than through a well-organized and interested Alumni Association. 

As has been observed, but little good can come of great accomplishments that 
are kept from the eyes of the world. What benefit to mankind would have 
resulted from the telephone, the wireless and other great inventions of the present 
day had the originators of those ideas kept them a secret instead of giving the 
information to the public at large? Just so with an institution of learning. Hov.' 

can it build a reputation, gain the interest and the attention of the people of the 
State and ai)peal to the boys yet to come if nothing is said of what has been and 
is being accomi)lished at the school and of those who coni])ose the Alumni? The 
school makes the man, but, after all, the man makes the school in proportion to 
whether his record in after life is a failure or a success. Every act of moment, 
every accomplishment worthy of mention on the part of those who have been 
trained at College I 'ark reflects credit on the old College upon the Hill and attracts 
the attention of the ])arents who have boys to educate, and the attention of the 
bo3'S who have the right of selection of the college they are going to attend. 

Thus the need for the successful .\lumnus' constantly linking himself with his 
Alma Mater. There is an inestimable value to the college in having published 
along with every public notice of achievement of moment the fact that the princi- 
pal is a graduate of Maryland State. 

The Association should be strengthened by the interest and thought of every 
man who is eligible for membership. The combined thought of the many is better 
than of the few. It does not take very much time to attend a few meetings each 
year to give the Association the benefit of your views concerning the interests of 
the Alumni and the College ; to make suggestions of a constructive and beneficial 
nature and then help to put them into execution. 

Through the Association there should be established a greater feeling of 
brotherhood and a closer relationship, not only between the graduates, but between 
the Alumni and the student body. The undergraduate should be made to feel that 
the Alumni is taking a keen interest in him while he is a student and in his student 
life and activities; that they stand ready and eager to welcome him into the mem- 
bership of the Association when his course is completed, and then to lend their 
aid and co-operation whenever possible in getting him started upon a successful 
and useful career. It all means encouragement and inspiration to the under- 
graduate. The man with a fresh diploma in his hands should be made to feel 
that when he steps forth from the shadows of his Alma Mater, fresh in knowledge 
and well equipped so far as his books prepared him for the difificulties that come 
of actual e.x])erience in life's endeavor, he is not without frientls in the big 
business world, who stand ready to receive him with enthusiasm and willing, help- 
ful liand and who will advise and counsel him. It is the .-Mumni of the school 
from which he comes, who will be ready and anxious to give him a chance in the 
line for which he has been prepared, wherever it is within their power to do so. 

Let the Alumnus who reads this, and those who are yet to gain the title, flock 
to the fold and conil)inc their effort with ours for a greater Alma .\hiter. Helj) 
the Association all that it ought to be, help to make it a greater organization for 
usefulness and force in furthering the interests of the school. Helj) to get every 
man active who should be a member and get every eligible upon the roll. 

In union there is strength, and the stronger the union between the Alumni, 
the College and the student body the greater the strength and the usefulness of 
Maryland State. 



Gentle Readers, the 1919 Reveille is before you. 

As you peruse the record of this year's events em- 
bodied in this volume, and happy recollections of the 
past are summoned to your mind, let your thoughts 
dwell upon the serene solemnity of the days gone by 
and try to live those happy days again.

■"llavfoot." as he is known to us. made his 
(lelnit in college in September. KJ14. lie was 
immediately initiated into the well-known 
societv of seeds and weeds — The (irange. 
When he l)ecame affiliate 1 with tliis obsolete 
organization he jjroved the aj^propriateness of 

his appellation. Today, as a senior, his amiable efforts of five years' work are 

manifest and his consequent compensation resides in the executive office of The 


Let us trace the gradation of his progress. In his freshman year he proved a 

true rival to the grasshopper. b\- winning the grass-eating 

contest on a ])ropitious occasion, at which time all the antillae 

famih- were i)resent to particii)ate. "Hay foot," however, 

])roved the worthy hero. 

■'fhiy foots' " career was not limited to the art and prac- 
tice of agriculture and animal husbandry alone. His name 

now rests ui)on the records of State's athletics. Many are 

the inscriptions u])on these records, but we are glad to say 

Leiter's ranges among the foremost. He was not alone the 

victim of the si)Otlight in academics and athletics, but spread 

his talents and accomplishments to the "whirl of society." 

P.ut life is not without its trials and tribulations, no mat- 
ter how straight the way. The world war intervened. 

Leiter rallied to the call of his country and subsequently 

went to I'lattsburg at the end of his junior year. The same 

old "iJep" and vigor that were displayed at college and will 

inevitably accom])any him through life won the much desired 

bars of a second lieutenant. It this not a sufficient climax 

for a college lad ?

"Monopoly is my specialty" 

Kind friends, do you see this dignified 
personage? It is Kenneth Warren Babcock of 
the Maryland State College. Note the dignity 
of ])Osture and the all-importance of counte- 

The fall of 1915 saw "Bab" entering col- 
lege as a submissive little high-school graduate 
and a prospective scholar. He was respect- 
fully obedient to his superiors and extremely 
apprehensive lest he provoke their wrath in any matters. 

Just as the radiant summer rose gives way to the prickly bush of the tliorns 

in the fall, so "Bab" emerged into the limelight as a sophomore. Terrorizing the 

rats, shocking his classmates, exemplifying the real hard sophomore. "K. W." 

claims the second year to have been the best year of his 

college career. 

^^ "Bab" is specializing in entomology. By the whir of 

^^^ its wings or the track of its feet on the wall', any insect is 

"^P easily described and classified by this illustrious scientist. 

^^^^^ His two summers of picking bugs off the cabbages constitute 

^^^^^k practical experience which will no doubt issue him great 

^^^^^B (opportunities for the future. 

^^^^^^H Kenneth has not sjoent liis entire four years at college 

^^^^^H with his nose to the grindstone. He has realized that there 

I^^^^^B are many other things to 'be learned at college besides 

^^^^^^ studies. C"onse(|uently. many a burdensome week has been 

^^^^Hr terminated with a hurried little "business" tri]) to Baltimore. 

^^^m "Bab" has a remarkable affinity for the girls, and during 

■■ his brief sojourn at college he has made a thorough study of 

■■ fair damsels. .As a result, he has a host of friends among 

VV the fair sex. and will keej) them — if thev never meet each 


^^^ Now that we have sung the ])raise <>f this nnljle Senior 

in due form, let us close with a wish that he may accomplish 
as much in the future as he has boasted al)out in the past.

He eats, he sleeps, he talks — in tact, he is 
almost human. It is none other than Bacon, 
the great engineer. I know it will surprise you 
to find out that he is a human being, even as 
you and I. 
"Bake" entered our midst during the winter of 1919. having been a member 

of the Class of '18 until he answered the call of his country. "Bake's" military 

career was a glorious one. Husthng freight, cleaning u]) wards and drilling, all 

made up the day's work in the Medical Co.r])S. Our hero 

was one of the many who were ready U) go across when the 

(iermans ])laved them a dirty trick and stopped the war. In 

his Junior year this youngster, as "Doc Tolly'" calls him. 

showed all of us how to drill and won the competitive drill. 

At studying "Bake"' is marvelous. He bones on his les- 
sons every night, and is the first one to hand in any problems 
assigned to the Seniors by "Harry." 

Taking all into consideration, "Bake." the Class of '19 
wish you lots of luck and ho])e to see you become a great 
civil engineer. We will all rejoice in your success, and feel 
very sorry that we must now part and go out into this cruel, 
cold world.

" Ihisijiess is my pleasure" 

Where did you come from, baby, dear .^ 
Out of nowhere into here. This might be said 
of "Buck."' One bahiiy afternoon in the fall 
of 1915 we were surprised to find running 
loose on the campus a chubby cherub, which 

we immediately dubbed "Buck." Under the close guidance of "l)(.c Tolly" the 
infant has grown rapidly, both mentally, i)hysically and socially. It has been said 
that "Buck ' is the most successful financier among the students, and as long as 
the bones played a i)rosperous tune, or the fourth ace remained safely up his 

» sleeve, he has never lacked spending change. 
As for girls, "Buck" is king of all the ])ursuers of the 
fair sex, for at the Junior "I'rom"' last year "Buck"' blos- 
somed forth witli the cjueen of the toe dancers, li is rumored 
that upon graduation "Buck" intends to inaugurate a toe- 
dancers' union, and we feel confident that he will be unani- 
mousl\- chosen king of instruction. 


After all has been said, it must be recognized that as a 
caj)able business man and a good fellow "Buck" has few 
ecjuals, and we are confident that he will be a credit to his 
college and to his class. Here is hoping that "Buck" will 
move with the sun, and its bright rays illuminate a i)ath of

"1 rifles make siteeess. but sueeess is no trifle." 

One mild and fair day in the fall of '14 a 
rather unsophisticated-looking youth could be 
seen wending his way up along the walks of 
stately M. S. C. .After some time in perambu- 
lating the campus and buildings of the said 
■'institootion'' this person finally decided to 

halt in front of the Registrar's office. Upon registration it was found that this 

bashful and ])lushing \(aith was no one in the world but "Chester. ' 

E.ver since his entrance in the Sub-Freshman class "Chester" has been one 

of the most energetic and studious fellow^s in the college. However, he made one 

fatal error during his collegiate career. While delivering 

(uie of his famous orations on "The Class of '19' "Chester 

emi)loved the use of one little word that did not (piite har- 
monize with the rest of the sentence. So bad a slip was it 

that the act nearly took the lireath away from the instructor. 

But even in spite of this unforgivable encroachment upon 

the I'jiglish language, because of liis ability as a writer he 

was rightly elected Class Historian. 

"Chester" made his debut as a society man at the junior 
"I'rom"' of the Class of 'ly, and since that time has been 
([uite an admirer of the fair sex. 

Truly, "Chester" is a tine fellow, ami no matter where 

he may go or what may be his occtt])ation. we sinecerly 

wish him the greatest possible success.

"More to be pitied than seamed" 

Friends, I ask you, in all fairness, what do 
you think of the face above? You need not 
mind giving your honest and candid opinion, 
because nothing makes him sore except Berlin 
and "Doc Tolly." We sincerely hope that be- 
fore you find this record of his noble life they 
will liave both passed beyond the point where the\' will l)e an\- l)othcr to him. 

"Jinks," as we know him atfectionately and otherwise, tn-iginally came from 
Sparrows Point, where the mosquitos are as large as hens and carry lanterns at- 
night, and where the sun never shines except on Sundays, and then it most times 
rains. But during the past summer he has come up in the 
world, and now sj^ends his time commuting l)etween Seattle. 
Washington and College Park, lliere is a reason — but why 
embarrass the fellow ? 

There is one thing that made him famous, dear reader, 
and that is what is commonly knt)wn as "belly-aching." 
From the very lirst day he landed on this campus until the 
very minute he received his shee])skin he has never failed to 
register kicks, and it is re])orted bv his roommate that he 
even kicks when he is asleep. 

"But all jokin" to one side. Mabel." he is really a very 
delightful fellow, and we feel sure that he will make hi.j 
name ring 'round the world with his engineering accomplish- 
ments. We know it, because is he not a member of that 
illustrious class which was the last to enter under the Mary- 
land .Agricuhur.'d College and the first to graduate after 
])eace had come? He is. dear friends, and we hope and pray 
that you will learn to know him and love him as we do. 

liere's to you. "Jinks"; sorry, old to]). that it's only 
water. "

When it comes clown to working difficult 

mathematical problems we always resort to the 

fuzzy-topped benedict. "What is the area of a 

circle?" "X'elocity squared.'' "Howard, your 

A' A mind is not in the classroom," saith the "Prof." 

But when it comes to a military genius. Von 

Hindenburg looks like a minus ((uantity when compared to H. O. If imagination 

will permit, think of advancing from an insignificant corporal to a first lieutenant 

just over night. 

"Fuzzy" never knew what it was to miss a dance. For a fact, ice-cream and 
punch could have been missed more easily than could our be- 
loved toe dancer. At football he was a wizard mainly be- 
cause he was built like a submarine with the push of looo 
l^ounds per square inch in all directions. 

Maryland State, through its varied career of sixty years, 
has been the recipient and possessor of many an unusual, 
conspicuous and traditional occasion and happening, but 
when the formation of a "Lovers' Club" was announced to 
the auditors, and this actuality was witnessed by the specta- 
tors, the climax was reached and all other attempts vanished 
as would a ghost. 

We never think or write of a fellow but that his most 
admirable qualities present themselves automatically ; and it 
is, we are grateful to say, the case when we consider 
"Fuzzy 's" career at Maryland State. His better traits are 
manifestly predominant. He has been a worthy, sincere and 
faithful student and companion, and it is with this indelible 
stamp that he faces the world as a representative of the Class 
of '19 to undoubtedly make an enviable record. "Fuzzy"

"O Gee! O Golly! O Gosh! Gee IThiz::!" 

Good looking! Far be it from such. 
Since Cleopatra was a vampire and caused 
Antony to leave his happy home, it is not the 
ambition of this young Apollo to cause the 
doors of Gerneaux Hall to be closed to the on- 
come of blushing suitors. 

"Eddie Current,'' as he is known to the elec- 
trical world, often gives flashing speeches before the Engineering Society on sub- 
jects like "Great Engineers Before Me.'' Seriously speaking, when anyone wishes 
to find out the diameter of three-inch short circuits, the theory of eddy currents in 
trolley wires, or calibration of number 7 wireless wire, he will consult our Stein- 
metz. In fact, he is such a genius that the ''Hyattsville 
Daily Gas Bag" states that after twenty years of experience 
with Westinghouse "Eddie"' will return as "Mike"' Creese's 
able assistant, polishing lamp boards and keeping the labora- 
tory free from Havana Ribbon ashes. 

We could not forget this young man's social ability, due 
to his pleasing personality and handsome figure. When 
"Eddie" trips a dainty fantastic shake-a-hip the natives arc 
so astounded, even as birds upon a swaying tree top, till 
themselves with such "agrestic' feelings that the environ- 
ment is so translucent as to compel them to seek a nearby 
corner and comment u])on this dainty figure that leisurely 
ticlde t(jes around the floor. It is believed that some day he 
will excel Vernon Castle. May he dance triumi)hantly into 
the world and exemplify his motto, "Next to 'luldie Cur- 
rent' comes 'Tommy' lulson," and electrify the most remote 
"Eddie" sections of the universe through his ingenuity.

"A slim hound leads a loncj eliase" 

One (lark, cloudy day in the fall of 1914 
a tall, lean, lanky, skinny fellow's head was 
seen peeping over the "Gate of Opportunity.'' 
He was our friend and classmate, "Slim from 
^ '-1 Sleepy Hollow."' To tell the truth, "Slim's" 

only rival on the hill is "Boo-Hoo." Can you 

imagine in what way? Yes, in modern languages. "Slim" has it all over "Boo- 
Hoo" with his "H-Jo and Ya stuff." Our hero has broken all records for taking 

German condition examinations. 

One thing "Slim" mastered during his sojourn here is how to use a slide rule, 

even if "Dean Tolly" didn't see him very often on account 

of those miserable chills. On one morning after having had 

concrete laboratory on the preceding afternoon "Slim" woke 

up and found that his eye had left its socket, and wandered 

down to "Harvey's" to get an ice-cream cone. Soon it re- 
turned just as greasy as ever. "Slim" was glad to see it, 

but he was unable to get any sleep for many days. One 

thing. "Slim"' wasn't dumped during the time, as this eye 

never lied to him. "Slim"' is quite a lover. Every night 

during his Junior year he would be down in Hyattsville. 

\\'e can"t see how he kept the drag with all of them, because 

he had a time to keep with one. In his Senior year one ot 

his classmates (not mentioning any names) surprised him 

by saying "I will."' and this settled him somewhat. Then he 

thought of only one girl, but we never could find who the 

miserable fair one was until one day he said he was thinking 

a])Out working in a mine. Later we found out that this girl's 

father owned several mines. 

"Slim" has many friends on the campus, and we arc 

sure that there will be something missing around the campus 

next fall. We hope and know that "Slim's" future, which- 
ever one he chooses, will be successful and pleasant.

"Of all great men you ever knezv, 
P. 'Mike' and I are the only iivo.'' 

Isn't he cute ? Think of it ! he was still 
cuter when he came here in the fall of 1914 
Little Paul rode up College Avenue on a pretty 
blue bicycle and reported to "Boo-Hoo'' like a 
good boy. That dignity stroked his goatee, 
adjusted his red tie, and stated in his round- 
about way that he considered it inadvisable to let boys under ten years of age enter 
this institution. However, "Pods" had that convincing manner of speech even in 
those days, and finally persuaded the all-highest to let him enter. 

His first year was full of troubles. He could not convince the "Profs" that 
he knew more than they. Then the Sophomores knew such 
nice games and sports in those days ; in fact, he got the 
largest bag of snipe in the history of Prince George's County. 
In his Freshman year his time was entirely taken up 
with study ( ?). It is remarkable how the kid developed in 
his Sophomore year. Hicks and his side partner, "Snipe" 
Sj)eidel, had much sport with the discipline committee. The 
next year "Snipe" didn't come back, so the firm was re- 
named "Star and Hicks." They managed a roof garden in 
P. Section, Calvert Hall. 

But Paul's ambitions became higher. With this in view 
he set out to improve naval aviation. Ensign Hicks' career 
as an aviator was filled with ups and downs — mostly the 
latter. After failiiii^^ to convince Secretary Daniels that he 
must go to Europe, our hero returned heartbroken. 

Many of us have wondered why Hicks is not a "ladies' 
man." Well, here's a pointer: The kid thinks he is engaged. 
That being the case, we can predict little of his future. It is 
entirely up to her.

"Laugh and the world Uiuc/hs zi'ith you; 
Snore and you sleep alone." 

"Whitey" rushed upon us in the fall of 
'15. In his Freshman year little was seen of 
V ^ ^ our white-haired youngster, because he jour- 

neyed back to Frederick every week-end to see 
his much-missed Hood College. We all think that "Whitey"' enjoys the college 
dances, but he and his have a better time sweeping snow off the streets of the 
Capital after the dance. 

In the spring of '18 our friend left us and enlisted in the Naval Aviation. We 
are glad to say that he is back with us this year wearing "his 

"Whitey" has one fault, and this fault is characteristic 
of all animals of the same genius and species. Whenever 
anyone toucltes or tickles "Whitey" he aKva\s lets forth a 
turkey gobler's gobble mixed with a jackass "hee-haw."' 
One day Lewis laughed so hard that Prof. Cotterman 
thought "Pop " Norris was coming up the hall in his "Henrv 
F.'" But when his eyes fell on this beaming ray of sunshine 
wending its way toward the classroom, the Prof, came to the 
conclusion that "Whitey" had taken on the new shimmy 
dance as executed by the famous dancer "Cozuma,"' alias 
Chester F. Bletsch. 

"Whitey"' has made many friends during his four years 
at college, and will be much missed. We all wish him the 
best of success in the future.

"He zi'ho serves n-ell is duly compensated' 

On August the 8th. 1898, an epoch in 
world's history began, heralded by the birth of N ^ O 

the fair-complexioned individual upon which 

you are now gazing. Like all famous men of history, our friend Erston's adoles- 
ence was uneventful as far as the rest of the world was concerned, his genius being 
impressed on the public at large for the first time in his Junior year with his elec- 
tion to the editorship of the College paper. 

Since that time lu'ston's rise to fame among h's col- 
leagues has been unparalleled. As president of the Y. M. 
C. A., and President of the Student Body, and his other va- 
rious student activities, Erston has accomplished more for 
the Student Body than any other man. 

A well-rounded college man's life consists not only in 
taking an active interest in college activities, but also in an 
entlnisiastic particii)ation in the college social life. 

Possibly your casual glance at his beaming physiognomy 
has already informed you that our friend is a "bear'' with 
the ladies. 'Tis the truth ; and let it be whisi)ered that 
I'j'ston's leisure moments are s])ent answering tender epistles, 
indulging in phone conversations, and filling out dance pro- 

That same unassuming personality, irreproachable char- 
acter and geniality wliich have so endeared k-rston to the 
hearts of M. S. Caesars will, in our estimation, guide him to 
a glorious success.

"Corpulenti forluna adjuvat" 

"Pop" is physically overwhelming, men- 
tally uni(|ne, and morally — well, say, versatile. 
When you look at him you think at once of 
things like the Grand Canyon or the Sahara 
Desert or Barnum & Bailey's Circus. Need- 
less to say, his debut at College was almost a 

'1 wo things had intiuenced his career — literature and war. In his Sophomore 
year he worshiped at the shrine of the Goddess Terpsichore. No dance was 
complete without him. He danced to and from classes, the mess hall and Bill's. 
He considered the Rossbourg Club the most important thing on the campus. Yet 
literature was the cause of it all. He got the dance craze 
from a stray remark by Longfellow ; * * * "and de- 
parting, leave behind us footprints" * * * "Pop" left 
footprints on some of the daintiest pumps that ever fox- 
trotted on any floor. As a Junior he steered the Weekly 
safely through a critical period. 

He is a born soldier. Why, he hadn't been drilling more 
than six months before he had risen to the rank of Lance 
Corporal. It was incredible! "Pop" went right in town 
and bought him the best lance he could find. When the war 
broke out "Pop" grabbed a gun and started after the Kaiser .1 
Somebody warned Wilhelm in time, however, and .he abdi- 
cated, so our hero returned nonchalantly to his Alma IMater 
and assumed supreme command of the College battalion 
under the nom de guerre of Captain and Adjutant. 

It sounds just like a story, doesn't it? And to ever^ 
pound of this petit hero the Class of '19 wishes the same 
good luck and success in the future that has been his in these 
four good years at Maryland State.

"Saying is one tiling and doing is another" 

Away back in the dim past, in October, 
191 5, there appeared on this campus an indi- 
vidual who dehghted the hearts of the Sopho- 
more Chiss. The hrst year we saw very little y j>' q 
of "Charlie," probably due to the above-men- 
tioned fact, and in reality he was not much in evidence until he became an inhab- 
itant of Calvert Hall. Even now Charlie does not spend much of his time at Col- 
lege Park ; we sometimes wonder who the fair damsel can be, but only time will 
disclose that fact to us. 

Needless to say that Charlie is one of our shining lights 
in the military department, rivalled only in his glory by xA.d- 
jutant "Pop.'' Anything you do not wish to know about 
military matters, ask him, and we guarantee that you will not 
find out. 

When the Honorable Charles does show up in the class- 
room he does excellent work, but possibly that is due to the 
necessity for balancing up his accumulated zeros for absence 
from classes. 

Despite the lack of opportunity of becoming very well 
acquainted with Charles E. Paine, we cannot fail to recog- 
nize his sterling (jualities, and we, the Class of 1919, wish 
him all the good luck in the world. Here's looking at you,

Drink deeply of this delightfully chiseled 
visage presented to you. my friend, for with- 
out doubt you will see its likeness on the front 
page of our newspapers many times in the next 
decade. For this amiable gentleman is from 
the land of "milk and honey,'' where politics 
A' A reigns supreme and beautiful women enhance 

the charm and grace the beauty of the great 
"Charles County, God bless you !" We feel sure that he is destined one of these 
days to represent his county at the little town of Annapolis, and then it will be a 
short story to fame and the fulfillment of his political aspirations. 

It is true that this eminent gentleman's career was near to interruption before 
it had begun, when some few years ago his whole thoughts 
and hopes and ambitions were concentrated on a certain 
golden-haired young lady. Her sunny smile was so capti- 
vating that Carlisle was lured on nearer and nearer to the 
brink of the seething crater of matrimony. 

But a slight incident occurring at a dinner in the lover's 
honor, when Carlisle made a grave breach of etiquette — Sh ! 
he tried to put a piece of beefsteak in his pocket to take out 
to college. A meddlesome parrot nearby remarked, "Polly 
wants her beefsteak !" whereupon the seizure was made pub- 
He, diplomatic relations were broken ofif and a state of war 
declared to be existent. It is to be hoped that this "would-be 
despoiler" of our young hopeful's life has long since regret- 
ted her rash actions, for we who have been associated with 
the gentleman in cjuestion realize his magnitude of personal- 
ity, his likeableness, and, yes, even his loveableness of char- 
acter and disposition. 

Well, girls, here's "hats oft" to the one who so cunninglv 
contrives her snare as to entrap this Senator-to-be. We who 
know him are ready to declare that men are not made with 
a better disposition or more pleasing personality, and the 
Mrs. Posey of the future will be assured the best husband 
the whole world could ever give. "Pose"

"Quien mas tiene )nds quiere" 

Behold, gentle reader, the "Daniel Web- 
ster" of State. Since Earle matriculated at 
Maryland "Aggie," in the fall of '13, his high- 
est ambition in life has been to set the world 
atire with his orations. Under the tutelage of 
Prof. "Charles S." he has pressed forward toward his goal until he is now the best 
orator in the Maryland Colleges, for in his Junior year he won the intercollegiate 
oratory contest of Maryland. 

In the fall of '13 this young man, fixed with ambitions to perform great things, 
entered the last of the long line of "Prep"' classes, and is now 
the only member of that class to survive the six years of 
gruelling work and graduate with the Class of '19. 

Earle is something of a soldier, having attained to 
the high rank of captain of one of the companies in the bat- 

Despite his ability as a soldier, we have heartl that he 
will lay the sword away and turn to the soil for his chosen 
career. It seems as though the call of the cows and chickens 
strongly appeals to his cabbage-growing ability. Earle, the 
Class of "ly joins in wishing you a large success in your 
career as a farmer, and may you lind a farmerette to share 
your success with you.

on the campus a quiet, modest young chap who 

i called himself Lee Sellman. Lee. as he was

everybody that he was here for business. 

"Profs" found in him a real student. This year Lee kept all his social aspirations 

hid in Beltsville. 

It was not until his Junior year that Lee was discovered by the ladies. From 
then on Lee was a changed man. No social function missed his attention. He 
even went so far as to secure for himself a car to enhance his 
social obligations. "Profs" noticed the change and found it 
possible for Lee to make a grade less than "9'' on mornings 
when Lee and his Overland had been visiting the previous 

However, Lee had not forgotten his purpose in coming 
to College, and the work he did under Professor Wentz 
deserves mention. It also might be mentioned that while 
attending college Lee was i)utting to jjractice some of the 
principles he was learning, on his farm in Beltsville. 

After all is said and done, Lee is a fellow Maryland

will make good at.

"lis the zcise old ou'l that pretoids to sleep" 

Here he is, mates, eyes closed but always 
awake. I mean always awake when there is 
anything worth while happening. One day Jim 
picked up a girl coming over on the train from 
Baltimore. Her shoulder being attractive to 

his sleepy eyes, he nestled to a peaceful sleep, only to be awakened by her gentle 
touch and reminded that his snores were disturbing the passengers, and. too, that 
she really must get off at her station. 

Jim entered M. S. C. in the fall of 191 5. Being a true farmer he entered the 
famous seeds and weeds course. He showed great stuff in 
his class duties, athletics, and also social functions. The 
faculty, realizing what a valuable man this sleepy chap was, 
persuaded him to change to the four-year course. Jim 
needed little persuasion, however, because he, too. knew how 
much there was for him at dear old State. 

Not Inng after the L'niled States had declared war 
against (iermanv, jini heard llie l)Ugle calling. IJeing a lad

Stuntz, more commonly known as "Stuts,"

dexterity that soon he was looked upon as an authority on

noted triumvirate of the Class of '18, the other members 

being Sando and McKinley. Their slogan, "Boo-Hoo uber 

alles,'' was the first word in college politics at that time. 

Stuntz was one of the first men from State to answer 

the call to the colors, putting to good use his early training. 

He served in an army remount camp. That he made good in

can hardly be classed as a topic of unusual interest to Stuntz, 

we cannot help but surmise future possibilities when we see

of life. Thus, of the ninety-seven original members there remain but twenty to 
receive their diplomas. But wherever these ex-members may be, we are certain 
that they will be imbued with the spirit of 1919, and are bound to have success in 
all their undertakings.

Senior Class Ode 

(To the tune of "There's a Long. Long Trail' 

There's a long, long job awaiting 

In the land of sweat and toil. 
Where the sunbeams are beating 

And the spade's in the soil ; 
There's a hot, hot tire awaiting 

In the dreams of all engineers. 
When '19 goes from "Si. S. C. 

To conquer financiers.

Class History 
of Nineteen - Nineteen 

S in the famous song, to the End of a Perfect Day comes this class. 
Through hardships, toils, pains and many good times they have endured 
the storms — now to find only a rough and rocky road over which they 
will have to travel step by step, and though many a drop of blood will be 
left by the wayside, and though the shoes will be worn through and the 
bare foot touch the ground ere they attain that pot of gold which is so 
often thought to come with the degree, this class will mark upon the dome of 
heaven those immortal numerals Nineteen and Nineteen. Every man has shown 
whar he has in him, and it can be truly said that they are ])ure gold — have l)een 
tried with tire and have not been found deficient. 

On a bright, sunny day in September in the year nineteen hundred and fifteen, 
ninet\-seven fun-loving boys came to Maryland Agricultural College, and after 
being talked nearly to death in a hot. stutTy long room they were turned loose, and 
were at once taken in hand by a band of men known as Sophomores and put 
througli a set of stunts that onlv the stoutest and bravest could withstand. Xever 
has such a hazing been seen around this campus. This class could not lie tlie first 
class to enter the Maryland Agricultural College, but it was the last, and the words 
of the Scrijitures, "the last shall be first," will prove very ap])licable to this class. 
They will be first in every walk of life. The first class of this college has naturally 
paid the penalty of time, and though their bones are dust and their swords are rust, 
still the spirit they founded lives on in the breasts of each loyal son of the Class of 
Nineteen. To this class alone belongs the honor of handing down the tradil'oiis of 
old Maryland Agricultural College. 

In Athletics the\- ])roved themselves to I)e of the best mettle. man\- of llie men 
making their letters in their I'reslinian \ear. Among the men who distinguished 
themselves on the footl)all team were Aitcluson. Axt. C'oster. .Mornhinweg. Mur- 
rell, Stevens and ]\lcDonald. Then baseball had such men as Axt. Aitcheson. 
Mornhinweg, .'■^iegert and Richmond. Trrick aNo had its sli.ire — Ilrown. lUiell, 
Chipman, Perkins. 


In interclass contests the maroon and white maintained the supremacy 
throughout the year, losing but one battle, when the class was dragged clear 
through the Paint branch. Even though they lost, every man hung to the rope 
until the final shot was fired which declared the Sophomores the winners of but 
one interclass contest. All the other contests were taken with flying colors from 
the Sophs — the cane rush, football game, baseball, tennis, pool and chess. 

Scholastically. this class has held a record. If a record of class could be taken 
it is believed that a very high average would be the result. Several men have main- 
tained grades averaging eighty-five and over for the entire four years. This is 
something worth knowing. In the junior year E. M. Sawyer won the intercolle- 
giate oratorical medal. 

In extra-curriculum activities tlie men of this class practically ran things in 
their Junior year. In the military department they maintained the same high 
standard which was shmvn throughout the four years. Practically every man in 
liis ."senior ye'dv held a cadet commission in the battalion. 

The world war has taken many a man from this class to France and other 
l)arts of the world. The class was ninety-seven men strong when it entered college, 
and will graduate but twenty-one of those men. Many of the men of this class 
have been wearing gold bars, several silver bars, and a few the double bars. Alany 
are still in the service as this book goes to press, and will continue in it for some 
time to come. They \ovti the work and hope to stay in it. That is merely an out- 
cropping of the ol(l M. S. C. s])irit that is in the heart of every loyal son of the 

Cupid has shot several of liis darts into this body of men with rather accurate 
aim. Several men have become benedicts during their four years here. "Buddie" 
Mornhinweg and "Fozzy" Coster have each taken unto themselves a wife. Other 
men are building "dovecotes" for two. among those being Babcock. 

In the Junior year the class undertook for the first time to get out the 1918 It was some job for this group of men. Heretofore the entire ener- 
gies of the Junior class have been devoted to getting up a Junior Prom. But. 
aside from the Prom, they had the book to publish, and, due to the untiring efforts 
of Buck Berlin, a very presentable book was issued. 

The Prom was some Prom. When Proms are mentioned in the future only 
one will be thought of in the minds of all the men of this class. The Willard 
Ball Room was the scene of the festivity, and although it was given on Saturday 
night, and the dancing had to stop before midnight, there was encjugh pleasure 
crowded into the few short hours between nine and twelve tliat will be long 
remembered bv this class. 


And now, as each day draws them nearer to the goal of a four years' fight, 
this class finds itself trying to hold the hands of time and let them abide 
a while longer on the campus. They realize that they have come to the end of 
the Perfect Day and are looking through the door of the future, where they will 
be a few years hence. The future is bright for all, thougli the road is long to 
the future, but as they are stout-hearted and fear no man,J:hey should run the race 
and all receive a crown. Some go to the Peaceful valleys, others to the roaring 
blast furnace, others to the chemical laboratories, while others with transits and 
levels go forth another city to build or to blaze a new trail into an unknown land. 
Whatever their aim, though, let it be right, and as Davy Crockett once said, 
" be sure you're right, then go ahead." Let their watchword be "Excel- 
sior,'' onward, upward, higher, higher, over toil and jxiin, until from the con- 
quered heights thev may look down upon a world sul^dued. 


Before the sun is up the bugle sounds, 
Breaking relentlessly our deep repose 
While still 'tis dark. Yet sweet the sound, 
F^choed in memory's halls, of that clear call. 
And then the sunrise — that was new to us — 
Shading from deepest red to palest rose. 

Of all sul)lime experiences I know. 
None can surpass those autumn evenings when 
We stood attention while the flag went down. 
And flutes and trumpets played the national air, 
While Nature, with October's mellow hues. 
Made of the whole a god-like sym[i)hony. 


Soft, yet penetrating; sweet, yet weird — the bugle blows. 

Heralding the forces of the night. All lights go out. 

What countless tides of thought deluge the mind. 

Of mother and of home, and of that hour 

When the great test should come — which never came for us. 

And then came dreamless sleep until the morn.

They say 'tis foolish, call it wasted time. 

Well, that may be. Xo goods does it produce, 

Imparts no wealth of knowledge, yields 

No tangible results or benefits. 

Activity extended far into the night 

Fatigues, and dullness follows in the morn. 

This selfsame effort, worthily used, 

Cireat things for progress might produce. 

Oh yes ! 'Tis foolish. 

The drum gives life unto the feet. 

The violin cries its message to the heart. 

Shaded lights of purple, orange, or red, 

Vistas of swaying couples thru the palms, 

Tossing seas of radiant, happy faces. 

Host of fair maiden.s — a garden, as it were. 

Of lovely human blos.soms, rare and beautiful. 

Here is chaste pleasure, joyous purity. 

Youth triumphant, youth supreme ! And yet 'tis foolish. 

The skillful archer, Cupid, enters in 

And singles out a victim here and there. 

All this is foolish ? Maybe that is true. 

But if it is, then let me be a fool.

'Tis the class of '20 zclioiii iiu-w you sec; 

JVe are the pride of old M. S. C. 

]Vc hare tried to originate all of the time. 

So we present our members one and all in rhyme. 


First there is x\branis, a newcomer, from 
J. H. U. 

A ragtimer fine, his equals are few ; 

He's a bear with the ladies at afternoon 

That make you light in the head and weak 
in the knees. 

He came to our college during the S. A.T.C. 

And what a fine private he turned out to be. 

Things have changed ; he has risen, as wc 
look we can see — 

Top Sergeant Abrams of Company B. 

Sterling E. Abrams 

And now we have Ady, or "Sadie'' as he's 

Who while in "Cabs" House, o\er lessons 

would bone. 
Rut now in "Cabs" House, he's seen everv 

season ; 

Like (irape Nuts, my readers, "There's a 
reason," yes a reason. 

She ( yes, the secret is out. ) has him cap- 
tured, by gum, 

.And now he's a ri])-roaring son-of-a-gun. 

Lessons come, lessons go, it's all the same 
to him now ; 

How he does it. and gets awav with it, we 
don't know how. 

Edward B. Ady 

J. Hall Barton 

And here's little I>arton. the smallest of all, 

Whose chief aim in life is to try to grow 

He believes in co-education, it seems so at 
least ; 

He likes girls from the North. South, West 
and East. 

But there seems to be one who's ca]»tiu-ed 
his heart. 

It doesn't seem i)ossible that they could live 
a])art ; 

To mention her name — well, that's another 

But how often he's seen doun near River- 

There's "Teddv" Bissell, a close friend of

But "Ted'" is all right, he's a star and will

He's bashful and retiring, and modest and

But when Buniside. or Bradford as he is 
better known, 

Enters the Hmelight, why the others have 
flown ; 

As the "Beau Brumniel" of Hyattsville, 
how often he is seen, 

\\'e wonder who will V)e his reijular (|ueen. 

He's quiet in manner, and sedate as well ; 

He's wrecked the heart of many a belle. 

So strength to your arm ; may }OU always 

In locating the little bug that's destroying 
the weed. 

Bradford L. Burnside 

Why, here's "Ha})" Carroll, a granger, bv 

Who will soon be dishing out oats by the 

He too has become quite a l)ear with the 
ladies : 

Ah! mv brethren, this i)ath leads to Hades. 

Carroll is a specialist in seeds and weeds 

And things that helj) satisfy the farmers' 
needs ; 

Of course, in this line, he sees (|uite a few 

And I'm tuld that with them he raises the 

H. Morrison Carroll 


Conyngton. who aspires a speaker to be, 

Who seeks to declaim when in compan}- — 

In economics he seemed to know more 

Than the guy Ely, who proved quite a bore. 

He was nicknamed Julius when he first 
came to school, 

But he soon proved to us that he was no 

Some say he is bashful with the ladies, 

But is it his fault, or the fault of the maids? 

John Conyngton 

Meet Dawson, one of our famous engi- 

Who believes half that he sees, and naught 
that he hears ; 

He's proven himself second only to "Mike," 

Altho' in appearance they have nothing

Who oft in the evening causes distraction ; 

H it were not for her, he'd never be danc- 

Now at our hops, you can see him a-pranc-

Now Drawbaugh has become quite a shot 
with the rifle. 

So watch out, niv friends, be careful, doii't 
trifle ; 

He is the fellow that always craves money 

For our dues — don't laugh ; that's not

Etienne, who in the town of Berwyn resides, 

Is known to do everything Keefauver 
decides ; 

He's contem])]ating making the tri]i around 
the world 

On his redskin motorcycle, with our State 
flag unfurled. 

As a chemist he's known ; he's some little 
mixer ; 

We tli'nk he is working on a long life 

W hen doing the "shimmie", just watch him 
some time, 

He wiggles and shakes (oh, I can't find a

Arthur D. Etienne 


Walter N. Ezekiel 

Now Ezekiel, oft called our own "iNTissing 

Attacks all fair ladies (we don't think). 

For some reason or other he is ])opular this 

And maybe it's because of his sister dear. 

He studies and works, so will always suc-

Some of his classmates might take heed.

He has come (juite near to a ])lace in fame

We realize that his work takes time,

In the business world he should make his

Oh, Plockman. if \vc had hut the time

X()\v "Tul)by'' Jones we all seem to know ; 

Perhaps it's his ])ersonalitv that makes it so. 

If one isn't familiar with what "Tubby" has 

It's not "Tubb}"s" fault, but I speak only

He showed his worth and mettle ([uite ]jlain

James H. Langrall 

Now Langrall — there's no word to express 

How we feel toward this genus, who sent 
to the press 

This volume of wisdom, the greatest by far, 

Of all Ri:\i:iLr.ES ; it's 'way above ])ar. 

In the future we can see him — a hard-work- 
ing man. 

Canning all sorts of matter that others 
can't can ; 

He can shake a mean '"Douglas" when it 
comes to a dance, 

And all the young ladies he seems to en- 

Ihit Tviggs is a man whom we all know 
c|uite well, 

And of his man\- ex])loits we would gladlv 

lUu time won't permit ; it's sufficient to say 

That tlie most of them have a "hair-raising" 

He's a fine ball pla\er, the team ca])tain. too ; 

There's nothing in this line he can't do. 

He has iust found himself in learning to 
dance ; 

He would everv night if she would give him 
the chance. 

M. Talbot Riggs 


As to Ruppert, what can he say for himself? 
ycni ask ; 

I achiiit it, dear readers, it's a terrible task ; 

But I'll take advantage of this opportune 

To ask that you [)ardon these attempts at 

No harm has been meant, so no harm has

And what has been said has been said in

To write of the others is easier by far

E. C. Edward Ruppert 

Now "Tubby" Sewell, who spent last sum- 

At Plattsburg Barracks as the kitchen 
I)lumber — 

Vov his untiring efforts in bathing the 

lie was given a commission, with the 
Colonel's best wishes. 

There's only one objection that we have to 
observe : 

If he'd shaxe it otY, it would not disturb; 

I')Ut perhaps it is best, so please let it grow, 

I'or some of the ladies say that it tickles 
them so. 

Milton D. Sewell 


Wardney C. Snarr 

There came to our college a man named 

Fresh tmni the Army; now ain't that a jar? 

He's a stranger to the of us. and hardly 
ever 's seen. 

P)Ut from what we can hear, he seems to be 
keen. ♦ 

From some I ha\e heard that he is modest 
and shy, 

P)Ut he ought to get rid of that bye and bye. 

When Sterling was first ])resented to view. 

He seemed so (|uiet — that's because he was 
new ; 

But to hear him now, with his world of 

You'd think that he owned about half of 
the college. 

In his Freshman year, we are glad to say. 

One sport at least he attemjjted to ])lay ; 

But so hopeless was he with the bat and

Junior Class History 

N Januaiy we returned, a long time havinj^ elapsed since we had con- 
vened as a class. Some thought the time so s]>ent was a holiday ; at 
least it was different from regular collegiate work. All our class 
had been in the service of Uncle Sam and had necessarily dropped our 
rolls as students, but not for good. We are here once more better pre- 
pared for work after the recess. Unfortunately man}' of our men are 
still in the service and will not be able to graduate with the class. We sincerely 
hope the thought of that will not discourage the men from their former intentions 
of acquiring a college education. All these losses are severely felt, but the 
greatest loss, because it is irretrievable, was that of "Dutch" Baurman. Poor 
"Fats" was a victim of the "flu" while he was fighting the "Battle of College 
Park." Though "Fats" had his faults, such as being a day-dodger and wearing 
'the smile that won't rub off,'' he was a fine fellow, and his memory will ever be 
treasured in the hearts of his classmates. 

Though we were not an organized class during the course of the Students 
Army Training Corps, we did not forget that college would resume sooner or 
later. It was due to our thoughtful action at that time that class business Was 
commenced early this year. A Reveille dance, the first social function of the 
year, was conceived while we were still subject to the call of the bugler. 

Now that our army life is over, we have resumed our activities with 
increased vigor. The class is no longer burdened with the responsibility of 
fostering the "Rats," but has taken on new and greater cares. It has been the 
duty of the Juniors to direct the campus life, particularly since the establish- 
ment of Student Government. 

It was largely through the Class of '20 that Student Government was 
instituted. Away back when we were relentless Sophomores the plan was 
originated, but it was not thought wise to present the scheme then. We do not 
mean to take credit for abolishing the "Rat" rules — that reform justly goes to 
the honor of the Class of '21. Nevertheless we believe it was due to our teaching 
and kind guidance that ]\I. S. C.'s last "Rat" class, when they came into power, 
decided to make the recent radical change concerning Freshmen. 

Why is the Class of '20 such a leader, why is it always at the front ? Because 
it consists of such distinguished members. No other class in the history of the 
college has had such talented scholars as has ours. 


There is "Johnny" Sterhnj^; who is kn(j\vn wlierevcr the most exchisi\e of 
high society congregate. Hotel de Union often boasts of the honor of his 
presence over night. 

To "Bobbie" Knode belongs the honor of receiving the greatest number and 
the most artistic letters. Pink is his favorite color in stationery. 

Our ])resident is the one who leads us out of diplomatic troubles with the 
faculty. Only his able mind can cope with the wiles of "Perley I." and the 
oratory of "Curly"' Byrd. 

Our dear co-ed, Elizabeth, has long been known as the most deadly hurler 
of water bags. If she does not throw so manv as some of the others, 'tis only 
bec;'iUse she does not reside in the barracks. 

"Dumps'" Langrall has the unique distinction of constituting the entire 
general staff and total membership of the Canner's Club. The only thing that 
"Dumps" cans is the jninch at the dances, but please don't hold it aga'nst him. 

Barton is our most seedy hayseed. Hay and seeds are all (?) he thinks 
about. This was quite apparent last year when he often ( ?) arose at 4 A. AL to 
count Dr. Rose's tender nurselings. 

Twenty's most military personage is "Toddy" Riggs. His experience runs 
all the way from instructing "Zeke" in the facings to lectiu-ing to the fair Senior 
co-eds of New Hampshire State College on "The Si):rit of the Bayonet." 

"Jerry" Sullivan is the greatest statesman produced bv our class. Xo fjucs- 
tion lacks a deserving comment from him, no reform is too forbidding for him 
to attempt. "Jerry's'' greatest ideal is to make M. S. C. as great as Colgate 
and Co. 

We must not forget our renowned musician Adv. How soothing to the 
tired ears of his fellows are the tender strains of melody issuing from his 
delightful harmonica! How animating is the iollv ring of his bones! Xor is 
"Chaucer" without experience in leadershij). "B'" Company knows \er^' well his 
ability as a band leader. 

The remaining members have ecjualh- interesting ])ersonalities, but enougli 
have been character'zed to ]>resent the merits and short-comings of the class. 

Such things as herein treated doubtless seem trivial to more wordly individ- 
uals than the students, >et they are the things that constitute a real college life. 
It is only by these little incidents, mimicries if you wish, that we can ])repare 
for llie brutal realism of the great life ahead. If we seem childish, forgive us; 
we are ])assing the most glorious part of our lives and intend to make the best 
of it. It has been said of greater minds tlian ours — "He that is without the 
power to fancy will fail."

HE past year has been ci busy one for the Class of 1920. Besides editing 
the Revkille, it has taken the lead in providing entertainment for the 
college. This entertainment was j^rincipally in the form of a series of 
dances which were held to help defray the expenses of jniblishing the 

Though these dances liave been managed on a money-making basis, 
no one has ever claimed that the Juniors have sacrificed the pleasure of 
the dancers for the sake of a few dollars. We believe that the Reveille dances 
have to a great extent supplanted the Rossbourgs. 

Three dances have been held. On Friday, January 17. the first was given in 
the old chapel. This was the first social function of the year and a large number 
of dancers responded to the call of the music. The second dance was held on the 
28th of February in the new dance hall, the extension to the dining hall. Thanks 
to the untiring etiforts of the decoration and floor committees, the hall was con- 
verted from a bare army mess hall into a beautiful ballroom. This dance was even 
more successful than the first, notwithstanding the unpleasant weather. It was the 
first collegiate dance held in the new hall and the whole school thanks us for taking 
the initiative. The third dance was given in the same j)lace. on the 21st of March. 
Though the Juniors would like to give another Reveille dance this year, it can- 
not be done because of lack of time. 

The night of the year, as far as the upper classmen are concerned, was that 
of A})ril 4th. Everyone knows that was the date of the Junior Prom. Not only 
was it the night of the year but it was the Prom in the whole history of the college. 
Those who attended will remember it above all others. 

No more wonderful a combination could have been made than with the college 
students, their girls, Rauscher's ballroom and refreshments, and McWilliam's 
music. The hall was a heaven-on-earth, and the Juniors are heartily pleased with 
the fine accommodations which the management accorded us. The musicians were 
also splendid ; they contributed a great part to the success of the dance. 

One dance was conducted by getting partners by matching favors. This was 
something dift'erent and interesting for a change. The favors were quite novel 
and caused much merriment. Some partners could not decide U])on the nature 
of their trinkets, but that only added to the zest of the dance. 

A novelty dance given near the close was also delightful. It w^as a Paul Jones 
with which confetti was used. Everyone had a gay time as this was the longest 
and most lively dance of the Prom. Together with the different colored paper and 
the beautiful gowns of the ladies, it was a very pretty sight. 

At 2 o'clock the sweet strains of "Home Sweet Home"' ended the shortest, 
yet most delightful five hours ever spent in a dance hall. Our only regret is that 
the Prom could not go on forever. It was a happy, happy party that dispersed 
for the remainder of the night (or rather morning), to rest in pleasant dreams. 

The programs consisted of black leather card cases for the ladies and cigarette 
cases of the same material for the gentlemen. Though no one needs anything 
by which to remember the Prom, these programs will ever serve to turn our minds 
back to that glorious night.

Sophomore Class History 

HEX the Class of 192T drifted back to College Park in ( )ctober, 1918. we 
found to our grief that the Maryland State College did not exist, and 
that instead of being lordly So])homores we were to be "buck privates" in 
the S. A. T. C. Ye gods! What a joke! W'e accepted our lot philo- 
sophically, however, and immediately essayed to do our best for some of 
the misguided men who thought they owned the place. Strange to say, 
the War Department did not sec things our way. and — well, we all agreed with 
Sherman. It was even so. but the Class of 1921 came into its own as lordb' 
"Sophs." caretakers of the lowly "Rats." 

Our class was woefully small. At the start we could count but twenty-nine 
of the original fifty- four, but gradually we increased until we numbered thirty- 
seven, including "Billie" Bland, our popvdar co-ed. ()f the missing ones all but 
two or three are represented by stars in our service flag, for '21's stalwart mem- 
bers will always be found among the very best, both in college and in their coun- 
try's service. 

Although handicapped by our depleted ranks, we lost no time in deciding 
that, while our responsibilities were heavy, we would keep up the customs, tradi- 
tions and ideals of this institution as other Sophomore classes had done, no 
matter what the cost might be. It looked to be quite a task, as the '"Rats" 
increased daily vmtil they numbered one hundred and twenty-five. One unac- 
quainted with the caliber of '21's members would have said, "It can't be done!" 
when it came to starting the "Rats" on the path to manhood. But we knew we 
could turn the trick. The Army had left us the job of making men out of the 
varied assortment of humanity with which the college was deluged, and we would 
show the Army up. 

The free life most of the "Rats" had lived in the S. A. T. C. had spoiled 
some of them, but we lost no time in helping them to become decorous, well- 
behaved children. The second night of the college year we assembled our "cares" 
in the auditorium and formally introduced them to the customs of the college. 
Thev were strangely quiet, except for a few erring ones, who soon learned the 
value of silence and with obedient promptness performed their parts. After 
hearing their "R. G. O.'s" (the "Rats" General Orders) and some helpful advice 
from "King" Cole, they were marched in lock-step to the barracks and dismissed. 

Our dreams of a whole year of supremacy vanished at the end of two weeks, 
however, for it was then tliat Student (iovernment was instituted. Our class, 
forseeing that Student (iovernment could not succeed with "Rat-Rules" in force, 
came to the front with the extreme sacrifice for any Sophomore class — the abol- 
ishment of "Rat-Rules." Here '21 showed its true worth, for. when its own 
interests were staked against those of the college as a whole, it unhesitatingly 
made the sacrifice for the welfare of the college. 

It was a big step forward — one recjuiring much courage — but we do not 
regret our unprecedented action. There are times when we long for the dav when 
a "Rat" knew how to behave; there are memories of "Xo Rafs Land" and the 
"lllacklist" and the class paddle that are hard to ])art with. Our whole horizon of 
college life is changed, and the breaking down of old barriers, never an easy 
thing, is doubly hard to us. lUit we are living in the present, and to the existing 
condition we have adjusted ourselves. As "Sophs" we were a splendid class: as 
men we are e(|ually fine. The "spirit" of '21 still lives as the old class "carries 
on" beneath that maroon and gray banner, and in the annals of Marvland State 
College there will never be on record a better class than ours ! 

In supporting student activities our class has always been prominent. Snvder 
and Stubbs, the latter an All-State end for two years, were kingpins in that 
glorious Maryland State S. A. T. C. Championship Eleven of i(;i8, while (iard- 
ner. Manning and Stone made the scpiad. The baseball team has Groton, Eise- 
man and Smith from our class: several of our number claim to be tennis sharks, 
and we have ])lace(l I'Jscman and Stone on the \'arsity Basketball Team for two 
years each, while Stonestreet is a "scrub." The Ri-:\killi-: and the Rcviex^' stall's, 
the "Y" Cabinet, the two literary societies, the Chemical and Engineering socie- 
ties, and the (Irange, l~rats and all other student f)rganizations have their cpiota 
of loyal Soi)homores. In the liattalion we hold down manv sergeancies and cor- 
poralcies, while we have in no wise neglected our studies, the essential part of 
college life. "I'ej)" is our middle name! 

With the ])assing of our S()i)homore year the half-wav mark slips 1)\- and 
we step forili as juniors. .\s we look l)ack on our Sophomore vear— as we 
review its joys, its lessons, its struggles and its lriinn])hs — we are well pleased 
with our success. It will be a difficult task to make our coming \ear even luore 
successful than the past one. 



Inter- Class Contests 

NTERCLASS contest between the Sophomores and the Freshmen was 
gotten under way in the early part of February, when teams represent- 
ing these classes assembled on the football held amid a large and enthusi- 
astic crowd to test their strength in the annual tug-of-war. The contest 
was staged on a crisp winter day, just cold enough to let the men on the 
opposing teams feel chilly when they were dragged through the stream 
of mud and water that was constantly played over the center of the unlucky 
rope which was to withstand the violent attacks of the contestants. The 
Freshman held their end up for a while, but were finally forced to give way to the 
strength and endurance of the Sophs. There is an old saying to the efifect that 
"To the victors belong the spoils." and the Sophs lived up to that, forcing the 
defeated Freshmen to pull them up the hill to Calvert Hall in a farm w^agon 
amid the cheers of the upper classmen. It might be well to mention here that 
"Curly" Byrd was responsible for introducing a statue christened \'enus, of 
which the winning team of the interclass contest takes possession. The Sophs 
carried the lady off in glory, but had the pleasure of her company for a few days 
only, as the Freshmen in some mysterious way induced her to visit them for a 
short while. The Freshmen celebrated her transfer of aft'ections by building a 
huge bonfire in front of Calvert Hall, material for which was obtained from 
various sources, it being rumored that certain residents of the I'ark complained 
of losing summer kitchens, bread boxes, etc. 

The Sophomores were more or less worried over the safety of \"enus, and 
put her in a hiding place in keeping \\\\\\ her honor and glory. Their eft'orts, 
however, were fruitless, as the Freshmen were wide awake at all times and 
retained her possession, and the Sophs did not feast their eyes on her again until 
the day of the cross-country run. At that time she was presented to "Curly" 
Byrd in a rather dilapidated condition, and was placed in his care for safe keeping 
or until another \'enus could be obtained. The cross-country run turned out to 
be an overwhelming victory for the Freshmen, as they placed fourteen men out of 
a possible twenty. However, the Sophs had the pleasure of seeing one of their 
class finish first. Twilley winning from Gilbert of the Freshman Class by a timely 
spurt in the last few yards. 

The next contest between the classes w^as staged in the Y. j\'I. C. A. Hut 
under the supervision of Lieutenant Posey. "Y" director at this college. Here 
once more the Freshmen were forced to taste defeat at the hands of the more 


experienced and craftier Sophs, who emerged victorious. "Jake" Smith was the 
chief factor in the victory of his class, defeating all contestants. After the chess 
tournament, which ended so disastrously for the Freshmen, a day of reckoning 
was coming, bringing with it the interclass basketball game. The Freshmen went 
there with the firm conviction that they would win, and the Sophs with that old 
determination that has been marked in them for so long. The contest was played 
in the "Bull Pen." and opened with a vim and dash that is seldom seen on a basket- 
ball court. 

The Sophs rolled up a big score from the minute the whistle blew to start the 
game until the end of the first half, leaving the Freshmen behind with only a few 
points to their credit. I*liseman proving their main scorer. With the beginning of 
the second half the I'reshmen took on a new lease of life and literally swamped 
the Sophs, scoring points at will. However, they weakened in the last few min- 
utes of i)lay and were practically saved by the whistle, the game ending with the 
Freshmen two points to the good. Gilbert, Barall and Raedy played the stellar 
roles for the Freshmen, the former scoring over half of his team's points. 

The Sophomores and the Freshmen are now on ecpial footing as far as inter- 
class victories are concerned, and the time must come when they shall play one 
more contest to decide which class is to take the ascendency. Altogether it has 
been a remarkable year for interclass contests, and never before did two classes 
show more spnh and zeal or enter into contest with more vim and energy than 
those of "21 and '22.

Fresnman Class History 


ROM the "woolly wilds'' of the various counties in Maryland, from the 
■"wild woods" of the cities in several States, hundreds of fellows came 
to M. S. C. to enter the S. A. T. C. And once being here, as it was 
beastly difificult to get full credit for the S. A. T. C. term's work any- 
where else, a goodly number decided to remain so as to enter that 
"would-be famous" class of 1922. 

The size of our class nearly shocked the Sophomores, who set about 
trying to formulate a set of "Rat Rules'' which would subjugate us. These rules 
had been in effect only a short time when the first faint echoes began drifting into 
our ears of Student (lovernment really becoming an established thing. The 
Sophomores also heard these echoes, and, after a seance with "Curly" Byrd, all 
"Rat Rules" were reported abolished. We kicked our heels and nearly danced 
with rapture, though it might be added that "Rat Rules" evidently did not apply 
to "Rat Caps."' These brilliant scarlet caps still continue to ornament our heads, 
and the addition of our green ties did much to brighten the landscape. It is true, 
"variety is the spice of life." 

The Freshman Class has reason to be proud of itself with regard to athletics. 
Due to the absence of so many men in the service or in other war work, the foot- 
ball team was largely composed of Freshmen. It stands to the credit of the class 
that it has men in it big enough to bear the brunt of most of the playing and still 
give Maryland State a champion football team. These were Bosley, Raedy, Mol- 
ster, Bailey and Myers. In basketball, too. Freshmen played no small part. Two 
of our classmates. Gilbert and Raedy, landed regular berths on the team, and at 
least seven others worked hard trying for positions. It is a certainty that the 
class will also be well represented on the baseball team. 

Amidst all this discussion of men and athletics we must not forget that the class 
also contains girls. Co-education has started in real earnest, and five young ladies 
are the exclusive possession of the Class of ^22. 

All these aforementioned things are treasured up in the memories of '22. 
But the saddest event of the year was the day when we were "overcome by the 
Nervii" in the tug-of-war with the Sophomores. When the whistle blew we 
started on our test of strength. We were good pullers, but we were not so well 
organized as they were. How pleasant it must have been to ride up the hill in the 
wagon with our classmates as a means of locomotion. 

And so for one long year our class has stood together. We have "boned.'" 
we have flirted, we have even tried to blow up the Chemistry Building, but in all 
these things we have held together. This first year has proved the good quality 
of our class, and in years to come we must preserve that record and raise still 
higher standards for the honor of our class and for the glory of Maryland State.

EMORY B. CORKRAN, Rhodesdale, Md. 


This well-known representative of the Eastern 
Shore entered M. S. C. in the fall of 1917. He 
was at once named "Hairless," for obvious rea- 
sons. At first he seemed verj' quiet and studious, 
but soon he became quite sporty. He began call- 
ing on the fair sex with great regularity. We 
don't see how the girls can help liking him. The 
class joins in wishing him a happy and prosper- 
ous career. 

THOMAS D. HOLDER, Vienna, Md. 


This most attractive '"Eastern Shoreman" en- 
tered this institution in the fall of 1917. "Tom," 
as he is familiarly known, is so good-natured that 
he just can't get mad. He is well known for his 
entertaining qualities and his engaging grin. His 
chief fault is that he doesn't know one minute 
what he wants to do the next. We all join in 
wishing him a successful future. 




KURT F. MENZEL, Washington, D. C. 


This beautiful countenance decided tliat Al. S. 
C. was the place for him to finish his education. 
Accordingly, he entered State in 1917. He was 
at once distinguished !)y his confident air and 
pronounced swagger. This earned for him the 
sobriquet of '"Swagger." wlhch he has worn 
gracefully ever since. He once visited the East- 
ern Shore, and can tell you more about it than 
the natives. He has a fondness for arguing, but 
nevertheless "Swagger" is a good fellow and has 
the good will (>f the entire class. 

PHILIP S. RICHARDSON, Williamsburg, Md. 


"Phil"' is the last of that trio of the "Eastern 
Shoremen" that entered AI. S. C. in 1917. His 
chief occupation is sleeping, and he has even been 
known to go to sleep in "Grasshopper's" class. 
"Phil" shows special talent in avoiding girls and 
social functions. His chief pastime is going to 
the movies. "Phil" leaves Maryland State with 
the best wishes of evervbodv. 



"Hank," having decided to follow farming as 
an occupation, came to Maryland State to learn 
all he could on the subject. From the amount of 
midnight oil he burns we think he will soon be 
well informed upon this enterprise. He must 
have everything just so, and wouldn't even think 
of handing in themes unless they were typewrit- 
ten. "Hank" is a good scout, and we believe that 
he will return to Harford county well equipped 
to follow his chosen occupation. 


Class History of 2nd Year 
Class in X^vo Year Agricultural Course 

N the fall of 1917 a group of handsome farmers assembled at M. S. C. 
for the purpose of perfecting themselves in the science of agriculture. 
We had lived on our farms long enough, \v& thought, to appreciate the 
value of a course at M. S. C, and witli this belief we started forth on 
our conquest for knowledge. 

There were fourteen of us. After several weeks at State a few, 
who found the task greater than they had anticipated, left us to return to 
the farm. Upon the call of Uncle Sam three of our members left to enlist under 
the banner of democracy and to wage war upon the foe of civilization and prog- 
ress. In the summer of 1918 (irififen was awarded a commission as second lieu- 
tenant at Plattsburg. 

In October, 1918, M. S. C. responded to the appeal of Uncle Sam and devoted 
herself to the training of young men for service overseas. We became members 
of the S. A. T. C. and, laying aside our study of agriculture, entered upon inten- 
sive study and training in military science. This lasted until the signing of the 
armistice, and late in December we were demobilized. 

Since January 5 we have been trying to crowd the work of two terms into one. 
It is largely a matter of crowding and trying. There is little time for much else. 
Although our number has been small, we have tried our best to be represented in 
all activities that promote college interest and spirit. Holder and Richardson rep- 
resented us in baseball : Job and Griffin played basketball. We are well repre- 
sented in the Students' Grange, literary societies and Rossbourg Club. Wherever 
there has been an offering of food we all have been present. 

Our histor}^ is written. The future looms before us. If we are to take such 
part in the life and welfare of our State and nation as falls to the lot of those who 
have had the privilege of two years at AI. S. C., we are confronted by no easy task. 
There is much for the practical agriculturist to do. As loyal citizens we all shall 
strive to do our best, inspired by those who have been our teachers during our 
residence at M. S. C. 

It is not without regret that we end our studies and leave the scenes of two 
happy years.

1st Year Class History 

HE first-year classes of the two-year Agricultural and Engineering 
courses did not get under way until the second term, owing to the dis- 
ruption of the regular schedule by the S. A. T. C, which was demobilized 
the latter part of the preceding term. 

At the beginning of the second term, however, on January 6, 1919, 
a first-year Agricultural Class of seventeen was enrolled, being one of 
the largest classes ever enrolled in this course. Since the beginning of the 
term three more students have entered the two-year Agricultural Class, one 
being Mr. Juan M. de Ycaza of Ecuador, and one of the others a "would-be 
farmer" from New York City. The first-year Engineering Class consists of six 
students at the present time, this being the first year of this course. Six States 
and the District of Columbia are represented by the students of these courses. 

The w'ork in the two-year courses is most interesting, as well as practical, and 
the knowledge which is being ac(iuired by the members of these classes is cer- 
tainly most essential, especially so at the present time, for Agriculture and Engi- 
neering will probably be the two most important factors in the reconstruction 
period following the war. 

Mr. Edel of the Engineering Course was recently elected Sergeant-at-Arms, 
and we feel that he is thoroughly ca|)able of performing his duties as such. 

The first-year Agricultural Class has not been represented in the Reveille 
heretofore except by a list of its members, and as the two-year Engineering Class 
has just been formed, this is also its first appearance in the College annual.

ine Co -Eds 

O-EDUCATION is increasing in popularity at State. In the fall of 1916 
we started with one co-ed, in 1917 two more came and the fall of 191S 
brought seven new students to join the ranks andhel]) establish co-edu- 
cation at Maryland State, thus making oiu" total ntunber at present ten. 
This increase in number is very gratifying, and we hope next fall to 
double this number, (^ur present status is as follows: Miss P^lizabeth 
(j. Hook of lUUtimore Cit}-, Class of 1920, cotirse — Entomologv ; Miss H. 
Willette Bland of Sparks, Md., Class of 1921, course — Botany; Miss Huldah 
Ensor of Sparks, Md., Class of 1922, course — Domestic Science; Miss Bertha 
F.zekiel of Hyattsville, Md., Class of 1922, course — Ent(Miiology ; Miss Mildred 
Smith of Washington, D. C, Class of 1922, course — Domestic Science; Miss 
Rebecca Tarbert of Glenco, Md., Class of 1922, course — Domestic Science; ^iliss 
Helen Avery of Louisiana, Class of 1922, course — Animal Husbandry ; ^liss 
Lillian Hill of Massachusetts, special course in Animal Husbandry; Miss Eliza- 
beth Kerr of New York, special course in Animal Husbandry; Miss Elsa Wirt- 
heim, a graduate of Chicago University, taking special work. 

The increasing popularity of co-education at State was brought about in 
several ways. The college saw the ttrgent necessitv for a dormitory for the girls, 
so Cab's House, which has been renamed Gerneaux Hall, was entirely remodeled 
and furnished most beautifullw Five of the girls, the chaperon and several mem- 
bers of the faculty are living at Gerneaux Hall at j)resent. This hall will accom- 
modate quite a few more and it is hoped by next year all available space will be 

Also the college has added to its organization a school of Domestic Science. 
which has attracted many of the girls and which will, no doubt, be the means of 
bringing many more girls to Maryland State. 

However, the girls are not all conhning themselves to Domestic Science alone. 
Several are taking .\nimal Husbandry, and others are taking Botany and Ento- 
mology. Next fall there is going lo be established a school of Liberal Arts which 
should be popular with the girls. 

The Domestic Science classes are held in the .\gricultural Building. A large 
bright room on the second floor has been furnished with modern cutting tables 
and sewing machines. This is the sewing room, and all tlie laboratorx- work this 
vear has been heM in this ronm. |ust across the hall is another large room which is 

being tilted up as a kitchen. This looks very ])romising. All the latest improve- 
ments in domestic science are being installed and next year we hope to derive 
much benetit from lessons learned in this room. 

The girls have formed an Athletic Association which meets every Monday 
night. This association has done much in getting all the girls together. The meet- 
ings are held in the basketball room in the Agricultural Building and soccor ball, 
dodge ball, basketball and various other games are played. Everyone seems to 
enjoy these weekly gatherings and much enthusiasm is shown. Outdoor basket- 
ball and tennis are becoming very popular now that the weather is getting milder. 
A very elaborate athletic program has been arranged for next year. 

The dormitory, Gerneaux Hall, was named in honor of Mrs. Woods, Ger- 
neaux being her maiden name. This hall is beautifully located on a high hill, 
affording a fine view of the surrounding country. This was formerly the home 
of Captain Silvester, who was president of the college several years ago. The 
rooms are very spacious, which is characteristic of the older homes. On the left 
as you enter is a large living room which is very attractively furnished ; on the 
right is a smaller room used as an office. Several other rooms are on the lower 

This house, besides being a dormitory, is used as a i)ractice house; /. c, the 
girls are actually putting into practice some of the theory learned in the class- 
rooms, which makes the house a very interesting problem. The girls, accompanied 
by the teacher, go on shopping tours into Washington and help select articles for 
the house. This produces an added interest in the home and also teaches them 
to buy economically. 

From the above one can readily see that co-education is getting a strong foot- 
hold at Maryland State. We hope next year that a great many more girls will 
come, will bring new ideas and will lend their cooperation in establishing this 
very imjjortant factor. 


Back Again 


'Tis good to get back on the campus 

After being away, 
The 'tis sad to miss so many faces 

That were here just yesterday. 

And yet 'tis the same old campus, 
With the same old flagpole and hill, 

With the same old routine of classes, 
And the same occasional thrill. 

'Tis good to see change and improvement. 

Yet doesn't it make you feel 
Sort of sad. when you think of the old days. 

As if it all couldn't be real? 

I wonder where are all the fellows 
W'ho were here just a few years ago? 

Some in the Army and Navy, 

And some are in business, 1 know. 

And some are back here. More are coming. 

They straggle in every day. 
Yet only a few when you think <;f the crew 

That were here when we went away. 

But oh, what a gratification 

To see that this newer bunch, 
Tho made up of difi'erent fellows, 

Has the same old spirit and punch. 

B.L. B. 






Graduated at Military Academy, \\'est Point. X. Y., in 1876. and was 
assigned to the First Cavalry, U. S. A. Served for many years on the frontier, 
taking an active part in many Indian campaigns, including the Nez Perce War, 
the Bannock War, the campaign against the Sheep Eaters in Northern Idaho, the 
Ai)ache Indians in Arizona, and the Sioux Indians in Wyoming and Dakota. 
Started for Cuba with his troop but in camp in Chicamauga he was seriously 
injured by a fall from his horse, and thus prevented him from taking an active 
part in the Spanish War. Later on he joined his troop and started for China 
during the l'>oxer trouble, but at Xagasakie, Japan, word was received that Pekin 
had fallen, and his regiment was sent to the Philippines. Here he served for 
some time and was then sent home on account of sickness. On his arrival in the 
U. S. A. he was assigned to duty as Superintendent of the Yellowstone National 
Park, and served in that capacity for about seven years. 

W'as retired from active service at his own request in 1908. Offered his 
services again on the day the U. S. A. severed its diplomatic relations with Ger- 
many, and later on was assigned to duty as Professor of jNlilitary Science and 
Tactics at the Maryland State College. 


The Military Department 

HEN college opened this year the Military Department was everything 
and all other departments of the college were secondary. The Students' 
Armv Training Corps was in the ascendency. Commanding Officer, 
Adjutant, and Company Commanders were the men most often referred 
to, and before the men had gone very far they found out that instead 
l i '-'"-^ ' '^"^ ii of a College Campus they were on a Military Post. The bugle calls were 
sounded, although many failed to know them ; they were hustled out of 
beds in the morning with the insistent whistle of the sergeant and his snappy com- 
mand, "make it snappy, men." The word "men" had supplanted the word "fel- 
lows" and we found that our chum of last year was either first sergeant or Com- 
pany Commander and that where he was much courted last year and made a good 
chum this year he was found to be a tyrant gone drunk with power. We wanted 
his favor now more than ever, not because of the man. but because we needed 
that much desired week-end pass, and many times it was through him that it came. 
This college was unique in a way. in the making of acting commissioned 
officers of the students, due to the lack of commissioned officers in the service. 
Many of the men left from time to time to attend officers' training schools, but the 
armistice was signed too soon for any of them to win their commissions. After 
the suspension of hostilities the spirit of the S. A. T. C. was lost and a month 
afterwards found the last semblance of strict military gone forever from Mary- 
land State. 

The coming of the new year brought many of the old men back in the uni- 
forms of the various branches of the services, some wearing gold and others 
silver bars — but all crying "down anything pertaining to strict military'' — in fact, 
the word disci])line was never mentioned. The regular military training was 
resumed under the supervision of the men who were commissioned during the 
war and due t<i their untiring efforts a batallion worthy of honorable mention has 
been organized. 



Born in I'ittslnirgh. I'a.. July 26. 1892. Attended public schools in that city 
and at the age of 15 left high school ; took a business course in one of the business 
colleges of Pittsburgh. First position held, that of stenographer for the Phil 
adelphia and Reading Railroad, freight office. Pittsburgh. Left that place to go 
to the National Casket Company, where after a year was picked by the president 
of that concern as his private secretary, which position he held until the fall of 
1914, when the position as private secretary to the managing engineer of the water- 
works of the City of Pittsburgh was offered to him and accepted. Held that 
j)Osition until called into active service to go to the Mexican border, when he 
thought his one ambition to become a real soldier was about to be realized. How- 
ever, after serving ten months in the vicinity of El Paso, Texas, without getting 
a sight of the famous \'illa. his organization was ordered home. However, he 
did not have long to remain in "cits."' for about two months after arriving in 
Pittsburgh his regiment was again called into active service in the "World War.'' 
After four hard months of railroad guard his regiment, then the i8th Pennsyl- 
vania Infantry, later the iiith United States Infantry, was ordered in from their 
tour of guard duty and sent to Camp Hancock. Ga., to prepare for overseas duty. 
During the training period at Hancock, then Lt. Benz was Regimental and Divis- 
ional Bombing Instructor and also Judge Advocate of the Special Courst-Martiai 
of his regiment. His record as Judge Advocate was marred with one defeat in 
fifty-nine trials. Had the honor to take the first contingent of the Pennsylvania 
troops into action. 

On July ist to July 4th led his troops into action against the Huns at Hill 
204, near Chateau Thierry, being attached to the 39th French Division at the time. 
At this time, with the aid of two wounded companions, captured 38 prisoners. 
For conduct at this engagement received the Croix de Guerre from the French 
Government and later received the Distinguished Service Cross from the United 
States. The latter part of July received orders to return to the United States to 


get new troops. Imt orders changed while on the ocean and upon arrival was sent 
to tlie S. A. T. C. Camp at Flattsburgh Barracks. N. Y.. from which place, through 
the offices (jf Dr. Taliaferro, was ordered to the Maryland State College as assist- 
ant to the Ccjmmanding Officer.

An Appreciation 

When we of Marvlaiul State talk about athletics we turn, sooner or later, to 
discussing championshij) teams and the man who turns them out, our coach, 
"Curly" Byrd. For the i)ast seven or eight years this man has handled our ath- 
letics, and in that time State has enjoyed the reputation of being the home of 
excellent teams. 

When the squad turns out for the first football practice, and the veterans are 
conspicuously absent and tlie new men are equally conspicuous in their inex- 
perience — in fact, when things look pretty dismal — then is when "Curly" takes 
hold. The results are well known, b'or three years in succession our football 
eleven has brought home the State Championship, and, while we give our valiant 
warriors due credit, we reserve the large ])art of it for the "man behind the 
guns," our coach. 

It is the same in all other sports. The moving spirit in each and every ath- 
letic organization at State College is "Curly," and we are extremely fortunate in 
having such a versatile man as director of our athletics. 

We have yet to find a cleaner sport and a better strategist than our coach. 
He has acquired a national reputation by reason of his splendid qualities, and we 
of ^Maryland State can never repay the debt of gratitude we owe to "the man who 
is never licked" — our coach. "Curly."

Review o/^ the Football Season 

HlxN \vc relumed to college in the fall of 1918, football .'^eenietl dooiiied 
to occui)y a back seat. The S. A. T. C. work left us but little spare time; 
the "flu" broke up what s(juad there was and nearly did away with our 
coach, and our schedule was hopelessly mixed uj) with canceled and post- 
poned games. Notwithstanding these drawbacks "Curly" settled down 
to turn out a team worthy of upholding State's reputation. His success 
was demonstrated by one of State's best seasons, with a record of four 
victories, one tie, and but one loss. 

Our hrst game was our only defeat, for American University of Washington 
took us into cam]) by a 13-6 score, after a desperate battle. Our visitors out- 
weighed us, but did not strike their stride until in the first half on straight foot- 
ball, and barely missed winning out on a fumbled ft)rward pass in the last quarter. 


The next week we took our only real trip of the season, when we were 
V. M I.'s guest at Lexington, X'irginia. Both teams were unknown quantities, 
and the game was close and hard-fought. We had the edge, however, and won, 
7-6. At first the Virginians swept us off our feet hy good hard football, but wc 
came back in the second half and turned the tables on them, when Raedy scored 
a touchdown and kicked the winning goal 

In Western Maryland we found our easiest victim. The game was played at 
Homewood Field in Baltimore, and was never in doubt, for the team played beau- 
tiful ball throughout. Bosley's irresistible end runs and Gurevitch's eighty-yard 
run for a touchdown were the outstanding features. 

The following week New York University came down and treated us to a 
real battle on our home grounds. Their whole team fought well, but State had 
the edge throughout. "Curly 's" strategy won the game, for he substituted Bar- 
all, the fastest man on the sciuad, to execute a certain play, which resulted in a 

After a week of intensive training we traveled to Baltimore to meet our 
ancient rivals. St. John's, in a State championship game. They made things inter- 
esting by scoring first when their center, Recher, picked up a fumble and ran 
thirty^five yards for a touchdown. We woke up, however, and shoved Bosley 
across their line for a score just before the half ended. Although they were a 
point to the good, the "Johnnies"' were a beaten team when the second half began, 
for State's warriors went out to win or die. Twice more, by smashing line plunges 
and well executed end runs, did w^e cross that sacred white line, and the St. John's 
cheering section died. 

Semler, the Cadets' clever ([uarterback, electrified us all by running a punt 
back eighty yards for a touchdown, but time was called soon after with State on 
the long end of a score of 19-14. 

Now Hopkins alone remained to be disposed of, and on Thanksgiving Day 
we of Maryland State went to Baltimore determined to pull down another vic- 
tory. The weather was very bad, and the slippery ground made it comparatively 
easy for Hopkins' backfield to smash through our line. There were many exciting 
moments in the game, which was won and lost several times. A Hopkins drop- 
kick hit an upright, but fortunately bounded back on our two-yard line. Even 
then the opponents were unable to pierce our stonewall defense. We in turn 
recovered a Hopkins fumble and pushed to their one-yard line, only to lose the 
ball on a fumble as we crossed the line. And so the game progressed, with the 
rain driving down and neither team scoring. The result was both a surprise and. 
disappointment to us. for we had expected a win by a comfortable margin. It 
was a good game, however, and we have no kick coming. 

By virtue of our wins over Western Maryland and St. John's and our tie 
with Hopkins, we once more hold the Championship of Maryland. This was an 
S. A. T. C. team, but as all the other teams played in the State were of the same 
standing there can be no question as to our supremacy. 

It would be unfair to pick out the so-called "stars," for each and every man 
did his utmost to perfect a fighting team, and there is not space enough to praise 
each man. It was the team that won these contests, and both individually and 
collectively the 191 8 State champions have a warm place in the heart of every 
Marvland Stater. 







Here is the pride of our team, "Cap'n Fuzzy." 
For two years this stalwart gentleman from 
Western IMaryland has worn State's colors as 
varsity center, and this past season he was re- 
warded with the captaincy of a State cliam- 
pionship team. 

Mighty few men can surpass "Joe's" playing 
at center. His specialty is defensive work, 
and many are the plays which have come to 
naught when Coster put his one hundred and 
seventy-odd pounds in the way. 

Coster has heen a line ca])tain, for he is pos- 
sessed of the true State spirit. .Many a time, 
l)y his own example, lias he helped some 
weaker team-mate to play harder. As a leader 
he has set a standard which will he almost im- 
possihle to heat and difficult to e(|ual.

"Oh, who is that cute little boy with curly 
hair? Does he play on the team?" 

Such comment is often heard as State's 
squad takes the lield and runs through signals. 
1 he "cute hoy" is no otlier than our infant

The success of this year's team was due to 
Captain Berlin's untiring efforts. His capac- 
ity was twofold — first, he was captain, and sec- 
ond, he had to assume the role of coach. This 
task was especially hard during the first part 
of the season. There was only a small amount 
of material and no place in which to practice. 

His absence on the floor next year will be 
sorely felt. From the first to the last whistle 
of each game "Ruck" was constantly on the 
alert and seeking to find some weakness of our 
opponents. Always full of "pep," he never 
called anyone down for a seemingly stupid 
play, but kept on encouraging his players to 
try to do better next time. He was one of the 
most steady players of the District League, 
and is admired by many followers of the sport 
in Washington. 



There is a great deal that can be said about 
"Curly's hoy," but we just have to leave some- 
thing to our imagination. Resides, as next 
year's football captain, he has already been 

Robert surely is right there when basket- 
ball is the attraction, and to see him in action 
is something worth while. Why, even the Gal- 
laudet folks cheer when Bob nonchalantly 
tosses a goal from the center of the floor, and 
his floor work is even better than his ability to 
shoot baskets. 

W'ill State turn out a good team next year ? 
Well, the answer to that is pretty plain when 
we remember that the leader of the 1920 quint 
is none other than Robert T. Knode. 





of the Season 

NOTHER season is over, and Maryland State has yet to put out a really 
successful team. During the past year the team was confronted by many 
handicaps, chief among which were the lack of interest shown by the 
student body in the game, the shortage of time, and above all the absence 
of a gymnasium in which to practice. The handful of men who con- 
stituted the scjuad did their best, but the obstacles were too great. Con- 
se(|uentlv the team's record is not a brilliant one. 

Starting out the season as a member of the Washington Intercollegiate 
League, State found herself opposed to much heavier and more experienced 
teams. Consequently it was the surprise of the season when our quintet of 
youngsters defeated (iallaudet, conceded to be the best team in the league, in the 
opening game, i'j-2(^. The old State fighting spirit was chiefly responsible for 
our wiiuiing. and prospects looked bright. 

The ver^• next week, however. Catholic University downed us easily, 25-7, 
and that defeat was followed by four more. George Washington University beat 
us 25-11. (iallaudet secured ami)le revenge by winning from us, 33-8. Catholic 
University scored their second win, 34-12, and (ieorge Washington University 
finished up the season bv romping away with us unmercifully, 53-20. W'e finished 
at the last peg in the league, and nobody envied us. 

There were times in every game when the team showed flashes of excellent 
work, but it never lasted long. The lack of practice manifested itself in the 
absence of anv real team work, and our scores were largely the result of stellar 
individual playing. 

(iilbert, a new man. was the star of the team at left forward. He played a 
fine game all season. 

Eiseman, our other forward, was the most dependable man on the team, and 
played like a streak in all the games. 

Knode played line ball at both center and guard, and showed up to advantage 
on long shots. 

Berlin, who was captain and also acted coach, played a fast game and held 
down left guard in excellent manner. 

Stone at right guard showed good form. es])ecially towards the last part of 
the season. 

Raedy played a fast game at center as long as he was on the S(|uad. and con- 
tributed largely to what success we had. 

Rarall filled in the gap left by "jolmny" 1-jseman's enforced a])sence in fine 

We regret that the team did not meet with more success. Next year we are 
going to see a real l)asketball team turnd out at Maryland State.

\\ hen S])ring came this j'ear our friend. 
" Tockh" was taken sick witli the ""baseballitis." 
It was a serious case and he was not cured 
until "Curly" called the baseball team out for 
])ractice. Many have been the nights that 
■Toddy'" has Iain awake and thought how he 
would hit the pill for a row of lighthouses, 
and how he would stall a grovnider in mid-air 
( ? ) l:>ack-handed. 

"Toddy" is one of our most consistent play- 
ers and has shown his ability by being elected 
the leader of this year's famous nine. For 
two years it was doubtful whether he would 
make the varsity team, but last year he came 
in to his glory and proved himself a star. 
There is no doubt in our minds that "Toddy" 
will lead the nine through a successful season, 
and with this thought we wish him the very 
best of luck. 


Before you is a liean ])ole si.x feet in height 
and equipped with arms of unusual length. 
This bashful i)layer is "Hayfoot," whose work 
as a pitcher on the nine has been well above 
par. .\ few years ago baseball was almost un- 
known to him, and as a pitcher, it was beyond 
his conception, but now he is a "vet." It was 
his pitching that brought the team through a 
liard-fought season of \ya\\ last season, for 
without him wc would have been entirely sub- 
merged because a large part of winning the 
game depends upon the pitcher. 

"Leiter" is with us once more, and gives us 
all that pleasant feeling that our pitching staff 
is (). K. The team has before it a difficult 
schedule. Init with the Hue material available, 
and under the leadership of Aitcheson's pitch- 
ing, we are out to win.

With liis six feet two inches of lieight and

"Jinx" is one of our best men in the heavy- 
weight held. His main hobby is hop, step and 
jumping, and he showed us his abihty two 
years ago in the South Atlantic meet in Balti- 
more, when he brought home a shining gold 
medal. This year he has taken to throwing 
the discus and the javelin, and it is predicted 
that if he keeps up the record he now pos- 
sesses he will bring home the bacon fr(^m this 
year's South .Atlantic. 

As captain, "Jinx" is putting his usual "pep" 
into making the s(|uad a unit that State will bo 
proud of, and it is through his untiring efforts 
that the squad is determined to obtain a suc- 
cessful record. 



Track S 


for 1919 


RACK, a s])()rt which flourished at this ccllege until the war arrived, has 
waked from its two-year sleejj and bids fair to be an imj^ortant factor in 
spreading the name and fame of Maryland State. So far the squad has 
not had much practice, but the fifteen or twenty men who are out for 
the team are doing their best and the ])rospects for a good development 
are almost a certainty. Rvery afternoon one meets a scantily clad object 
running across the campus, while javelin and discus throwers are occasionallv 
seen. Ca])tain Brown has but few old men on the squad, but there is good 
material amc ng the new men. Harall and Raedy. in the track events, and Myers 
in the field events, are promising men, as is Twilley, a Sophomore, winner of the 
recent cross-country rim. 

While nothing definite has been announced, it is ho])ed to have on the sched- 
ule Penn State, University of Pennsylvania, Haverford. Swarthmore and Hop- 
kins. Besides, the South Atlantic cham])ionships will find State well represented 
on their lists. The outlook is encouraging and there are splendid prospects for 
an A- 1 track season at State.

this line of sport, and the outlook is hright for a championshi]j-caliher 

Although the s(|ua(l is made up almost entirel\- of So])hom(jres antl

there is no lack of material among these _\dunger fellows. .Ml the men have had 
previous experience with the game, some having ])hne(l with excellent teams. 

The team as it stands is comjjosed of three men froiu '_M and one man from 
'2J, these men haxiiig been ])icked from a fairl\- good held of com])et'tors. " junior"

Student Government 

LL affairs at the State College that have relationshi]) to the student h<Hly 
and general aetivities oi the students are managed by the students them- 
selves in cooperation with a committee of the faculty under a system of 
student self-government. The institution of this system was accom- 
plished at a meeting of the students in January, 1919, at which the whole 
situation was threshed out and a constitution adopted. 

The government is l)ased on co-operation between facultv and student brxlv 
and de])ends for 'ts success entireh' on a strict adherence to an honor code. 
The faculty exercises a supervisory i)art in the management of student affairs. 
The students, through their class organizations and their executive council, work- 
out their own problems and especially their own rules and regulations for general 
conduct on the cam])us. The actual operation of the system is carried out untler 
the provisions of a constitution which provides for an executive council composed 
of the presidents of the several classes. The organization of the student body 
is known as the Student Assembly, antl the y)resident of this Student Assembly 
is secretary of the Student Executive Council. Perha])s no better reason can be 
given for the establishment of student government and the abolishment of the 
previous disciplinary measures used by the college in effecting a certain standard 
of deportment on the cam])us than that given by one of the students in an address 
advocating the step : 

No law can l)e successful if that law is ])romulgated without the consent of 
those to whom it is to l)e ap])lied ; therefore, it cannot be expected that the student 
body of any institution will acce])t and adhere to a set of iron-clad rules that are 
laid down by a cnmmittee which depends on certain varieties of inmishment for 
their enforcement. 

Tliis has not been the case in the making of laws to govern the student body 
at the State College, but it is this state of affairs that we are trying to establish. 
We want to work <iut cur own laws, or rules as we are ])leased to call them, and 
then agree to abide by the laws that we ourselves form. We believe that under a 
system wherebv wo establish our own regulations each man will feel himself 
honor bound to abide by such regulations because of the ])art he has had in making 
them. To our wav of thinking, there is just one method of maintaining a high 


standard of deportment and living among the students on any college campus, 
which is to show each man what ought to be done and then let him work out his 
problem for himself. This system has been successful almost wherever tried 
because it follows out the general principle that knowledge of law and personal 
responsibility therefor are essential if laws are to be lived up to. Conditions under 
uhich the student body at this institution have lived in former years have not 
been according to these principles, and consequently the laws have not been lived 
up to and have not been successful because the students have felt that they have 
had no part in their making and they felt little or no responsibility therefor. 
Under the new system that we are asking for we will have a voice in the govern- 
ment and each of us will be morally obligated to observe fully every regulation 
of the institution. We do not expect to run the institution as some members of 
the faculty have intimated ; but, on the contrary, shall always abide by whatever 
institutional regulations may be established by the administration of the college. 
We recognize the right of the college to insist upon the observance of all measures 
that effect the college and its relationship to other colleges, to the State, to the 
communities, and to individuals of the community ; but in all matters which have 
to do with purely local government of the students we feel fully justified in ])re- 
senting to President Woods our request that we be granted a government based 
on the principles laid down by Lincoln at (iettysburg — "of,"' "for" and "by." 

This idea of student government was accepted by all members of the student 
body and has been rigidly adhered to since the request was granted by Doctor 
Woods. Under the new regime the deportment of the students has been almost 
above criticism and certainly much better than at any previous time within the 
last decade. Weekly meetings of the Student Assembly are held and the students 
take up and discuss matters that pertain to their general welfare. These matters 
are then put into concrete form by the Student Executive Council and immedi- 
ately presented in the same week to the Committee on Student Affairs. The Com- 
mittee on Student Aff'airs is composed of lour members of the faculty and the 
presidents of the classes. This committee has jurisdiction, under supervision of 
the president, over all matters that have relationship to the student body excepting 
the general educational work. So far there has been no disagreement in the com- 
mittee, and students and faculty have worked in perfect accord in bringing about 
desired changes and in the development of new projects. 

The students have proved in the last six months that they are able to cooperate 
fully with the faculty in administering the affairs of the student body and have 
shown a broad conception of what may be termed the written and unwritten laws 
which establish splendid morale and successful government. 


The County and City Clubs 

"//; Union There Is Strength." 

E are now living under a New Era ; in an age of democracies ; in an age 
of rapid advancement in the social, political, industrial, and economic 
life of the Nation and of the World. At no time since the inhabitation 
of the earth by man have we more deeply felt and realized the truth of 
that old adage, "In Union There Is Strength." 

With this keen realization, associated with a tirm determination, we, 
the students of the counties of Maryland, and the cities of Washington 
and Baltimore, matriculating at AI. S. C, have seen the urgent necessity of pro- 
moting and establishing a firmer union between the State College and its ])atrons, 
particularly, the people of the State of Maryland. As a means to an end we have 
reorganized the county and city clubs on what we hope is an efficient working 
basis, both as regards the patrons and the college. 

The Clubs have endeavored to place themselves at the disposal of the people 
at all times. They furnished the county newspapers with news items, and have 
willingly, and it is hoped, courteously, furnished information to all inquiries to 
the best of their ability ; and finally, have tried to support the the social side of 
life, by presenting many interesting literary programs. 

During the entire scholastic year the Clubs, both county and city, have 
endeavored to work together ; they have striven toward the same end, that is to 
bring the patrons in a closer unity ; to impress upon the young manhood, especially 
the high school graduate, the im{)ortance and value of obtaining a higher edu- 
cation, similar to the quality of that given at old Maryland State. And what 
better object can there be for us to look uj) to than the one set forth by President 
Woods — 'To teach the application of science to industry, to train students to 
be leaders and better citizens, to inspire them with lofty ideals and high-spirited 
lovaltv to State and NatiiMi."

Literary Societies 


T the disposal of all students interested in literary works are two societies, 
the Poe and the New Mercer. These are student organizations, organ- 
ized, controlled and managed by students, but having the faculty among 
their list of members. Weekly meetings are held regularly throughout 
the scholastic year. At these meetings there are rendered very interest- 
ing and highly educational programs consisting of readings, current 

topics, recitations, musical selections, debates and addresses by ]irominent si)eakers. 

About once a year the societies coml)ine and present a public mock trial. 

Then in the sirring of the year comes the inter-society debate. For many 
weeks prior to this, each society holds elimination debates by means of which the 
best two debators are selected. These two orators represent their respective 
societies in the inter-society debate. The yictt^rious society in this debate oljtains 
the ])rivilege of haying its name inscribed uj)on a silver loving cu]) offered b\- Dr. 
Patterson. This cu|) is finally awarded to the societ\- winning the debate three 
consecutive times. On this same occasion the best individual debater is awarded 
a medal. 

Although there is a spirited rivalry existing between the two societies, there 
is at the same time manifested a s})lendi(l spirit of sportsmanship. When one 
society prepares an exceptionally attractive program and invites the iniblic, the 
other society frequently attends to help swell the crowd, .\gain the members of 
one society do not hesitate to ask a faculty member (»f the rival society to act 
as judge in a del)ate. 

Jn short, wholesome recreation, instructive entertainment and good sports-

Tke Student Grange 

LiTTLE over four years ago the Student (irange of the Maryland State 
College was organized in Calvert Hall, as the pioneer organization of its 
kind in the United States. Its membership was restricted to students 
taking agricultural courses at the college. Its purpose was to provide 
a way for students thoroughly interested in country life and its problems 
to train themselves for work in covmtry organizations in the State. The 
charter members of the Student Grange were largely drawn from the Classes of 
'17 and '18, and a number of these now have become active workers in our country 
communities and have rendered real service in the organization of granges, boys' 
agricultural clubs, and other community organizations. 

Like other local granges the Student Grange is a secret organization devoted 
to the interest of country people, and is represented in the Prince George County 
Pomona Grange, the Maryland State (grange and the National Grange. Its mem- 
bers are active in the affairs of the county grange and in the annual meetings of 
the State Grange. When the National Grange met in Washington for its 
Golden Jubilee in 1916, the members of the Student Grange were an active and 
valuable asset to the reception committee that entertained and looked out for the 
thousands of Grange members who came in from every part of the country. 

New members are added to the organization each year and are generally 
drawn from the sophomore and freshman classes. In every case it is desired 
that these new members shall be thoroughly interested in agricultural work and 
anxious to fit themselves for real usefulness in country hfe. The motto of the 
organization is, "Every man on the job," and its members aim to live up to it. 

In addition to the business features of the organization a social half hour and 
"eats" are very enjoyable features of the meetings of the organization, which are 
held every two weeks throughout the school year at the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Reuben Brigham in College Park, both having been for a number of years grange 
members and interested in the affairs of the college. 

The only period in which the Student Grange suspended meetings was from 
May, 1918. to January, 1919, the organization of the S. A. T. C. at the college 
making it impracticable to continue the work until the war was over. With the 
release of its members from army service, however, the Student Grange has taken 
up its work again in a vigorous fashion and with its old time enthusiasm.

The Agricultural Club 

S Agriculture nurtures all arts, ^Maryland has established a growing Stat': 
college to ])roniote this wonderful, fascinating study. Today science 
has entered the field of agriculture, and we find newer and greater 
developments that cause the oldest art in the world to form its foundation 
on scientific principles. 

The State of Maryland looks to its State College as the place to train 

men to be leaders in agriculture, wherever they may be able to associate 

themselves with such a growing science. The first Agricultural Club was formed 

at this institution in 1914, and it was with this object in view that the Club w^as 


One of the State's greatest assets which lacks sufficient development is agri- 
culture. The agricultural students this year realizing this truth have re-estab- 
lished the Agricultural Club which has for its object, development of interest in 
agriculture and the promotion of organization in rural work. The Club promotes 
co-operation, also offering tlie upper-classmen a chance to present .subjects in which 
ihev will be interested when away from college. 

The greatest benefit to all men is that they have practical experience in organ- 
izing bodies of men, and only by an organization of agriculturists can the farmer 
and the cattlemen become recognized, and present their needs as do other great 
industries of the nation. 

During the second term of this year. Dean Zimmerman and Professor Wentz 
of the Plant Industry Department reorganized the Club. The constitution was 
drawn uj) and the officers were elected, as were also plans made for the future. 
Lectures by well-known men from the Department of Agriculture and discussions 
of interesting agricultural subjects by all members give every one a chance to 
express his opinion. From the interest shown the Club will be the best and most 
wide-awake organizaticin on the hill, even though handicapped by a late start. 

With the State depending on the college to organize agriculture and to pro- 
mote co-operation the Club feels capable of improving the general standard of 
agriculture to such a high plane that Maryland with her immense possibilities of 
developments will in time be a recognized leader in agriculture.

i ne Cnemical Society 

UE to the adverse conclitions caused by the war, the Chemical Society has 

MpTfli j been inactive for the last two years or so. Tlic number eligible to mem- 

^Tj| l)ershi]) has been considerably below the average, and the mental status 

has been so chaotic that it was inadvisable to attempt the regular activi- 

However, the Society has only been latent during this ])eriod. At the begin- 
ning of the third term the students registered in chemistry were called together 
and plans for the subsecjuent meetings were discussed. ( )fficers were elected, and 
the club at once became an active unit. 

The general proceeding of the Society has been similar to that of the organ- 
ization of former times. Meetings are called every two weeks, and then two or 
more papers, pertaining to the most ui)-to-date questions of that branch of science 
with which the Society deals, are read by a Junior or Senior. The programme is 
usually concluded by a brief review by a Sophomore. Occasionally a special pro- 
gramme is presented by a professional student in this line of work. 

The purpose of the organization is to give its members a broader and more 
thorough viewpoint of chemistry, to keep in touch with the most modern chemical 
developments, and to eventuallv become a scientific fraternity. 

Considering the lateness of organizing and other adverse conditions, very sat- 
isfactory prt^gress has been made this year, and one of the best seasons of the 
Society's history is expected next year.

Engineering Society 


T has been truly said that the war has hampered everything, and since the 
Engineering Society was no exception to the rule, the progress of its 
meetings has suffered intensely. Although the benefits that are usually 
derived from the excellent addresses and talks were totally lost this fall, 
it is now the aim of the Society to resume its activities w-ith greater vim 
and ambition so that the members may attain the magnificent qualities 
which are oft'ered them by the Society. 

The Society was reorganized upon the return of the College to normal con- 
ditions after the Christmas holidays, and the initial meeting was held on the third 
of February. This meeting was largely attended by both the old and the new 
members. Mr. M. A. Pyle, who was President during the year 1918, presided and 
called an election of officers. As a result, M. C. Brown, Senior electrical engi- 
neering student, was elected President. H. ( ). Coster chosen as Vice-President, 
and E. C. E. kuppert was awarded the honor of Secretary and Treasurer. 

The great difficulty confronting the engineer of today is that he cannot deliver 
a talk before an audience, presenting his ideas in good, forceful phraseology. This 
is due to the fact that engineers have failed to realize the gross importance of pub- 
lic speaking. This Society offers excellent opportunities to those who care to 
overcome this difficulty. Students who belong to the Society are called upon to 
deliver lectures pertaining to any branch of engineering. Another great benefit 
obtained from this Society is that of having some of the leading engineers in this 
vicinity deliver lectures to the body. The benefits here are twofold, because, first. 
the members grasp the lectures idea, and secondly, they observe the manner in 
which the subject is presented. 

This is one of the many activities of college life which no student can afford 
to neglect, for it is the affiliation with these organizations that broadens a man in 
his college career.

Tke Rossbourg Club 

HE Rossbourg Club was started ages and age> ago, and has come to be 

one of the traditions of the institution. Like all other good things, it has 

survived the ravages of time, and like rock that buffets the storms and 

is aft'ected not, this little club, although it lays all of its oft'erings at the 

feet of Terpsichore, has stood the test of wars and has come out the 

stronger for it. 

•For a time during the past years of war and strife it looked as though the 

Rossbourg Club would have to be given U]), Ijut through the untiring efforts of its 

officers and members '.t has been able to gi\e several social aff'airs that will long be 

remembered, as they stand out as an oasis in a desert of monotonous college life. 

After the opening of college in January of this year the little handful of Ross- 
bourg members got together and reorganized, and were able to give four delightful 
dances. Two of them were formal and two informal. ]\Ianly men. beautiful 
maidens and heavenly music are the tools of this club. All you need in the way 
of skill is to be able to trip the "light fantastic." "Come one, come all," "The 
more the merrier," "Come early and stay late" are all our mottoes. 

Our aim has been to entertain, and we feel that we have succeeded ; and all 
who know how to dance, take this tip: "LEARN." Do it now, because in the fall 
of this coming year this Club will flourish as a green bay tree, and you wnll surely 
want a seat under the sheltering shade ; but there shall be no rest for the weary 
under her bows unless he has worn himself out with dancing. 

Come sip the sweet drinks and cooling ices — be one of us who love and adore 
Terpsichore and worship at her shrine.

Maryland State Review 

HE MARYLAND STATE RE\TE\V is the College paper. It is man- 
aged, edited and published by the students with Faculty supervision. The 
paper presents the happenings of the students and the Faculty on the 
campus, makes mention of the important alumni activities, publishes in- 
teresting news of the Experiment Station and the Extension Service, and 
is also a melting-pot for the wit and humor of the campus. 

The Reviez^' is the mouthpiece of the Student Body. Undesirable phases of the 
College are adversely criticised, while the commendable features are given due 
mention through the columns of the paper. It is a medium of exchange between 
the students and Faculty. 

The Reviezv made its first appearance on March 4. 1919, when it took the 
place of the Maryland State Weekly. The latter had proved inadequate for a 
growing college such as Maryland State. The need of a larger paper had been 
realized for a long time, and when the new edition made its appearance it was 
received enthusiastically by every one of the readers. 

Another interesting feature about the Reviezv is the fact that it is self-sup- 
porting. It is financed solely by advertising and by subscriptions. This year the 
paper has experienced several difficulties which would naturally result from the 
war-revolutionized college year. However, State has the distinction of being one 
of the few colleges that published a weekly during the regime of the Students 
Army Training Corps.

Letters to Aunt Mae 

Dear Aunty : 

I have just returned from the U. S. service and find my sweetheart engaged 
to another man. I have been invited to a "hoedown," to be given in my home 
town. Do you think it proper and within the hmits of etiquette to ask this girl to 
go to the dance w'ith me ? 

Hopefully yours, 

Leiter Aitcheson. 

Dear I.eiter : 

You are certainly unfortunate in having your heartstrings torn asunder in 
such a manner. But cheer up. I once heard a country clergyman say, "There are 
many chickens in green meadows.'' If you still desire to dance with the young 
lady and can get the consent of her fiance, I do not think you w^ill greatly trans- 
gress the conventionalities of the best society. 

Sympathetically yours. 

Aunt Mae. 

My Dear Aunt Mae : 

I became infatuated with a fair stenographer last fall. I spent seventy (70) 
cents on her one night, and made her so ill as to take her home in a taxi. Do you 
think I should visit her, so that her affections for me will not wane, or do you 
think that ni}^ good looks are such as to prevent such a calamity? I am enclosing a 
photo so that you may judge. 


K. W. B.^BCOCK. 

Dear Babcock : 

If you desire to see the convalescent one, I think it highly advisable that you 
do so, but I would make one visit in the dark so that my physiognomy would not 
shock her and cause her a serious relapse. In the future do not spend so much 
money on her all at one time. 

Reprimandingly yours. 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

The other night while I was taking my girl home another girl tried to flirt 
with me and ])ick me up. I didn't do anything. What should I have done? 

Hesitatingly yours, 

C. H. Bacon. 

Dear Mr. Bacon : 

If you liked the looks of the approaching one better than those of the one you 
were with, you should have responded to "the call of the wild." If you liked the 
girl you were with better, you should have told the offender that you were a per- 
fect gentleman and did not desire to be insulted. You should have done some- 
thing, because Professor Creese says a thing is either right or wrong. 

Yours advisingly, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I was so unfortunate as to be obliged to officiate at a girls' basketball game, 
and the participants say I was horrid and discouraged them. As I am always a 
straightforward person. I didn't give any back talk or use any foul language. 
What can I do to square myself ? 

Certainly yours, 

H. S. Berlin. 

Dear Basketball Official : 

Your trouble can easily be remedied. The first step you should take should 
be to try to get a position on their team, thereby showing them your honest-to- 
goodness straightforwardness and your loving disposition. You should then take 
all of the young "athletesses" to a pink tea, and later dine them at one of the 
swellest hashhouses in town— for example, Childs' — and fill their alimentary 
tracts with pink tinted pancakes. 

Indeed yours, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I have been asked by the young ladies of Riverdale to give dancing lessons in 
that city, so that the budding youth of that section may learn the art of "shaking 
a mean ankle watch." Should I avail myself of this opportunity? 

Professionally yours, 

C. F. Bletsch. 

Dear Mr. "Castle : 

I do not think these young ladies desire you merely for your dancing ability, 
but desire to make suit for your hand. If you can ,stand popularity and can side- 
track tender advances, I think the adventure would be successful. 

Knowingly yours, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

A girl through jealousy had a picture of me and a nurse with a baby in her 
arms published. The damsels think I am a married man and will not associate 
with me. How can I undo what has so wilfully been done ? 

Freely yours, 

J\I. C. Brown. 

Dear Wronged One : 

The vampire indeed harmed you. You should draw up a statement that the 
lady in the picture is your sister and that you are the child's fairy godfather. I am 
sure "The Crisfield Tri-Monthly" and the "Sparrows Point Local"' would readily 
print this as current news. 

Yours grievingly, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I have fallen in love with a girl, and she has agreed to become my wife. I 
have several more months in college. Do you think I should get married now ? 

Yours sincerely, 

H. O. Coster. 

Dear Married Man : 

I. believe in the phrase "Obey the impulse." If both parties desire to enter 
into wedlock, I think you will make no mistake in doing so. If you do this you 
have Aunt INIae's best wishes for happiness and success. 

Yours truly. 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I have always had a keen desire to flirt. I do not know the rules and regula- 
tions thereof. Do you think I could get the desired information from a "Flirtation 
and Courtship" manual? 

Desiringly yours, 

E. W. Hand. 

Dear Mr. Hand : 

Yes, I think you could obtain the desired information from a book of that 
sort. I would refer you to a booklet on "Flirts and How to Flirt Them," by Riggs 
.and Mornhinweg. 

Exceedingly yours. 

Aunt Mae. 


Dear Aunt Mae : 

I am troubled with excessive flesh. The "wimmin'" do not hke me in my 
present condition. What can I do to make myself more pleasing to a pair of blue 

Heavenly yours, 

W. R. Hardesty 

Dear Mr. Weight : 

There is only one thing to do in your case. You are to be highly fed in the 
Mess Hall. You should become a day student and partake of nutriment at the 
Raleigh or the New Willard. 

Assuringly youirs. 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

While in France I fell in love with a little "Qui. Oui" queen. I couldn't con- 
verse with her, and I was extremely embarrassed when she tried to tell me how 
she longed to be in my arms and have me call her "mon cherie" 'n' everything. 
Professor Spence says I am incapable of learning the French language. I am 
going to return to that country soon. What can I do to make myself plain to her? 

• Illiterately yours, 

W. P. Hicks. 

Dear Mr. Hicks : 

H you cannot learn her language I would advi.'je you to leave Maryland State 
and take up a course at Gallaudet. Great emotion and sentiment can be expressed 
by sign language. 

Yours pityingly, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt ]\Iae : 

I have great difficulty with the ])retty creatures because 1 am ticklish. When 
my lady love tenderly places her biceps around me 1 jump from her fond embrace, 
and she thinks 1 am repellant. What shall 1 do? 

Tickled to death, your. 

R. R. Lewis. 

Dear St. \'itus : 

Your trouble is surely a serious one. You should either get a new girl with a 
tender touch, or wear tickle-proof ])ads over the parts affected. 

Yours amused. 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I have been given the honor of having the picture of a lady appear in the 
Reveille as my sponsor for the "Beaker and Burette Chib." I am sending you 
seven photographs. Won't you please help me to decide which one to use ? 

E. V. Miller. 

Dear Mr. Miller: 

That is indeed a difficult question for me to decide. I like that one with her 
hair flowing in ringlets about her pink-tinted ivory shoulders. The one with the 
missing tooth is also pretty. The photographer could supply the missing tooth. 

Puzzledly yours, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I am a little boy six years of age and wish to be friendly with a girl several 
years older than myself. She makes insinuating remarks about the down on my 
cheeks, and embarrasses me. Can you help me any in this matter? 



Dear G. W. N. : 

I would advise you to get a companion of fewer years and with a more sym- 
pathetic nature. As an alternative, I would suggest that you use some means to 
convert the downy cheeks into bearded jaws. "Eyebrow-lasheen" will give good 
results if applied before and after retiring. 


Dear Aunt Mae : 

I am troubled with timidity and bash fulness. When I am so unfortunate as 
to be thrown with the presence of a female, my knees quake and my tongue cleaves 
to the roof of my mouth. Please advise me in this serious trouble. 

Fearfully yours, 

C. E. Paine. 

Poor Little Shyness : 

Your case is a frequent one. I would advise you to learn to dance, and in that 
way overcome some of your timidity. By degrees converse with some girl until 
your bash fulness vanishes, even as the mist fades away before the northwest 
winds. Then, and then only, will your life dawn bright and clear. 

Strengtheningly yours, 


Dear Aunt Mae : 

I wish to propose, and have prepared the following openings to melt the ice : 
"You look very nice across the table ; such looks would keep me in a good humor." 
"Do you object to smoking around the house? I don't smoke." "The high cost 
of living isn't so high, after all, is it ?'' "Would you mind beginning to look like 
me?" "Yes, I dance like a camel, but that is because life was a desert to me until 
this evening." Which one of these phrases would be most appropriate ? 

Undecidedly yours, 

K. C. Posey. 

Dear Composer : 

Any one of the above lines would make an appropriate faux pas. You might 
add to the list. "Do you snore much?" and "What kind of gum do you chew? I 
like gum-chewing." 

Helpfully yours. 

Aunt Mazie. 

Dear Aunt : 

I have been corresponding with a young lady for two days, and I have never 
seen her and she has never seen me. She writes for my photo. Should I send it ? 

Yours consultingly, 


Dear Mr. Sawyer : 

I think ycni should use some means to learn the peculiar style of beauty of the 
unknown spirit. If her looks are such that you desire to gain and maintain her 
favor, I would advise you to send a picture of Mr. Babcock. In case this master- 
piece is not available, use one of Mr. Bacon. Then let the thoughts flow copious 
a la postale and build up a firm foundation. If you do not desire to hold the ac- 
quaintance, your picture will do. 

Aunt M.\i:. 

Dear .Aunt Mae : 

The other evening I was severely reprimanded by my lady love for being too 
bold. Do you think I should be like unto a cave man, or should I control my lion- 
like dashing ])ersonality ? 

(Jl)enly yours, 

R. Lei-: Seli.m.\n. 

Dear Cave Man : 

When I was a little girl I used to like to play in a cave, as many little girls do 
now. I do not think you will lose hy being too bold. The ladies may scold you, 
but behind the stern mask their hearts are a-tingle with - '"ide for the man who is 
rightly their master. 

Yours timidly, 

Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I am having great difficulty in deciding what to give my fiancee as a token of 
love and respect on her coming birthday. Can you give any assistance? 

Yours in haste, 

J. W. Stevens. 

Dear Lost Love : 

So many things are ap])ropriate it is difficult to decide what is best to use. 
I w^ould suggest mailing her a copy of the Reveille, or sending her a box of tooth- 
picks. Sometimes it is advisable to send her some flowers, such as Lilies-of-the- 
Ally, or a five-cent bunch of garlic and dandelions arranged in a pathetic color 
blending manner. 


Aunt Mae. 

Dear Aunt Mae : 

I have been told that I have a musical voice, and I can recall the hidden mean- 
ing of the sentiment expressed in the popular songs. Do you think I could win the 
love of a lady fair by tenderly singing her the new song, "It's Not Getting Married, 
But It's Living Together." 


G. R. Stuntz. 

Dear Warbler: 

If you can render that ditty so as to arouse the finer feminine nature of your 
proposed audience and convince her as to your proficiency in the art of culinary 
science, I think this would be an admirable means of attracting unto yourself a

A Fable 

'Twas in August, nineteen fourteen, seem'ly many vears ago, 
While the steel "Gray"' clouds of heaven hung o'erhead 

And the "Brown" autumnal leaflets in the breezes soft and low- 
Ecstatic were, that Peace and "Love" together fled. 

Th-.s brought not news of joy nor fond contentment, far be it, — 

But told of war and all its customary fears, 
And brought to all, both "Young" and old oe'r "Hill" and dell residing, 

That "Cole" and creepy feeling with the usual sobs and tears. 

The world was in a chaos, and the people in a frenzy 

When the Kaiser with his soldiers entered France. 
The "Horn" of consternation and the acts of devastation 

Made the "Gardner" leave his hoe and take the lance. 

And then old merry "England" with bold "King" George upon her throne 

And Sir Douglas "Haig,'' her warrior close at "Hand," 
No "Moore" could stand the insults and the "Stuntz" of bloodv murder — 

So summoned all her "Best" to protect the land. 

The youth were up and ready, and so were all the "Elder" 

To "Ridout" "n the thickest, and pay the "Price." 
The "Fisher," nor the "Miller," nor the lawyer, nor the "Painter," 

Had failed to shoulder arms at the "King's" advice. 

The battle was at its fullest, and the "Butts" were flving fast 

As the "Sargent" led his men into the fray. 
The little "Lewis" machine guns mowed down the dirty (iermans. 

And the Tommies plowed on to capture the dav. 

'Tis true while im their march they met the doughbo\s from L'. S. A. 

And joined the r ranks "to bring home the 'Bacon'," 
The Huns at this were heljtless, and fled at the point of "Barall's. ' 

But the chase was short — "Berlin"' was taken. 

The Allies, yes ! were victors ; but the losses were many and great. 

The "'Wards" were filled with wounded, suff'ring and "\\'hite." 
And no victory, how great, could soothe the "Paine" of the mothers 

Back home, whose dear ones had been lost in the tight.

"The reason why men eoiiie, remain, and U'tuj to return to Maryhmd State." 

January 6. — S. A. T. C. is seen to be a speck in the distance, the only 
remaining remnants being the khaki of "pretended hard service"' and the scars 
on evei:y wall and staircase of the "riotous inspection tours" of "Sergeant" 
Kenneth Babcock. College opens under old regime; "Curley" is declared V. P. 
of the institution. 

January 7. — Second day brings visions of an active year. New men are 
immediately converted into "Rats."' Big joint meeting in Auditorium proves 
the oratorical ability of Guervich, the natural inclination of Canter to "Love" 
and the pronounced fact that "Pete"' Groton and "King"' Cole can act "hard." 

January 8 — Classes began for those who did not observe the "legal holi- 
day.'' Posey found it more expedient to attend "Public Sleeping." 

January 9. — Reveille work began with Board Meeting. Berlin was on 
hand with h'.s usual "line." Langrall and Gray, however, did not let him share 
the honor alone. Of course, "Pearlly Eye'' was there to admonish them.

January lO. — The work of "Billy'' Bland was evident. All "Fe-rats" 

were seen to wear their green ties. Ask '"Beck" or "Pete." Big 

"Rat" meeting in 300 A. Burt, or better known as "Bert." was the recipient 
of a few "reminders." We must not, however, overlook the dancing of Diggs 
and Edel. 

lanuary 11. — "Joe" Frere meets up with an old friend. Regardless of the 
numerous spectators, he does not for one minute hesitate to "make eyes" at his 
beautiful colored lassie. Let it be known the boy has a "drag." "Jit" Stonestreet 
likewise seemed to know the "lady." I tell you about these street-car acquaint- 
ances ! 

January 12. — The married men return "without their wives." Sunday — 
quite an appropriate day for the "new henpecked" to venture out alone. We 
trust "Joe" and "Buddie" will make as faithful husbands as they were ener- 
getic and earnest students.. 

January 13. — The R. O. T. C. was organized for the ensuing year. "Major 
General" Norris and his "Shave-tails" proceeded to form the Battalion. "First 
Lieutenant" Drawbaugh was instructed to "fire-the-arms," while "Left-luey" 
Sewell was given supervision over "Drum Major" Strohm. 

January 14. — Water bags were in prominence; many had "pressing" en- 
gagements. One especially was found to be well directed ; it landed upon the 
cranium of our dignified senior, "Slim" Flardisty and profusely spread its con- 
tent upon his dainty shoulders as would a rain cloud suddenly pierced by the 
lleet arrow of Hiawatha's bow. 

January 15. — An earthquake was felt in the barracks — "Pop" Norris upset 
his bed. "Woe unto the artisan who fashioned those fragile legs ; the fall was 
mighty, impressive, and severe, the marks of my sudden meeting with the floor 
were indelible, and I shall chastise the one who caused my 'downfall' " were 
the threatening outbursts of our "Captain and Adjutant" as he laboriously 
struggled beneath his burden of wire entanglements and bed clothing. Hold 
on, "Pop," "recover" thyself, and remember that the tremor of your midnight 
calamity caused the awakening of "Irish" McCeney, who sleeps like a rock 
and resides on "Cat-tail HiH" of E section. 

January 16. — Y. M. C. A. reorganizes under Lieutenant Posey. The pros- 
pects for the year are exceedingly bright.

January 17. — First Reveille dance of the scholastic year was held in the 
"Y" hut. The evening was rainy but "dr}."' "Fuzzy," however, returned with 
the outward signs of an evening "wet," his formerly stiff collar resembling a dish 
rag, and little drops of pearly dew artistically beading and decoratnig his forehead. 

January 18. — Basketball season was ushered in with a grand innovation. 
Gallaudet was the first official opponent ; Gallaudet was the first official victim — 
27 — 26. This marks the tombstones of those sturdy warriors who tried so 
hard to supercede the efforts of Ady and Bissel, who fox-trotted on the side 
lines while "Cholly" Paine creditably recited a few^ lines from Chaucer in order 
that Ady may not miss the cadence. 

January 19. — Silberman and (iurevich, "his wife," promenade the campus 
in search of "jewels." After many extensive searches they returned despondent 
and time-worn. Indeed, so downcast were they in si)irit that they retreated to 
the most secluded s])Ot. and there sat down and wept upon each other's neck. 
In the meantime "Zim" Peterman spied the dejected twins, and whipping out his 
"Folding Cartridge Premo." snapped the inseparable two as they sat there re- 
posing. The truth of this happening is doubtful — it was told by "Eddie" Rup- 
pert. No one else recalls witnessing the occasion, and "Zim" nor "Murphy" nor 
Silberman recollect having experienced it. We will leave the plausibility of 
this episode to the judgment of Burnside. 

January 20. — "Jerry" is seen on the campus with his "sun." The kid was 
good-looking, like an egg with the sunny side up, and bright. What a contrast 
to his noble guardian. 

January 21. — This day took on an exceedingly serious asi)ect. It marked 
the occasion of a momentous act and a deed that rendered the tradition of 
"rat rules" unconscious. In an open meeting of the Sophomore class, through 
the unanimous consent of its members present, the well-established custom, that 
dates back to the origin of the college, was abolished. In its stead a body of 
resolutions was formulated concurrent with the ideals of democratic student 

January 22. — Babcock drilled the company. He had thorough confidence. 
Why not? "Slim" was constantly by his side and had dangling from his waist- 
line a saber that when extended could reach the most distant man in the file 
closers, and had resting upon his right hip, not as w'e suspect — a forty-five — 
but an "I. D. R.," from which he would calmly read when company was about 
to collide with the wall of A section, and poor Kenneth's knees were rattling 
like the tambourines of an hilarious troupe of playing negroes.

January 27. — Sad news. No death, no disappointment, no accident, but 
beans ! ! ! ! beans ! ! ! ! ! beans !!!!!! more beans !!!!!!! Ye Gods, 
woman, bring on the soup. 

January 28. — Student Government begins to be rounded into shape. The 
first Student Assembly is called and the following officers elected for the en- 
suing year: E. Miller, President; M. Brown, Vice-President; G. Norris, Sec- 
retary and Treasurer. 

January 29. — Rausch throws a pop bottle at "Jinks." Oh, boy! 

January 30. — Rausch is sick in bed — is rec'pient of much tattered nerves. 

January 31. — "Dumps" is flicked. Why? Ask "Bill" Fusselbaugh. They 
say several wagon spokes could be seen in "Jimmie's" room. It might be one 
of these that Jinks found very suitable to doctor up his opponent in the pop-

thing but "sweet," but on top of this marches "Hugh" W'ilmer, with his hobnail

February 7. — Rossbourg Club announces its existence with a big "blowout"

'"Sucl'cling" Owens rejoices that he is again able to take out his sled and go coasting 
o'er the "green." 

February 9. — Bacon and Babcock condescend to go to church. Berlin asks

February 11. — "Goodwin" appears as "Riggs" and "Riggs'' appears as "Good- 
win." The Army and the Navy join, make mutual exchange, and set out to exem- 
plify that the first is as good as the second and the second is as good as the first.

February 12. — Today is drill day, ye gods!!! As all Wednesdays, this tor- 
ture is destined to come, and no possible means is available to enable one to avert it. 
Torture ! torture ! torture ! we are forced to bear. 

February 13.- — Thirteen, we are aware, is our unlucky number. Let's see. 
Berlin gives great lecture in Engineering Society. He answers all questions that 
"Doc Tolly" is unable to fathom. We will leave it to the judgment of those pres- 
ent to draw their conclusions if not the first statement in this date was in keeping 
with the occasion. , 

February 14. — First interclass contest was held. Sophs win tug-of-war on 
football field, and in reward receive a free passage "to the top of the hill." 
\'enus, remember, presented herself for the first time on this memorable day. 

February 15. — Gallaudet 33, State y. Few Freshmen were able to attend, due 
to their many "hurried"' engagements. Broach was in prominence, as were Mor- 
gan. Darnall and Clark. 

February 16. — "Chick"" Sencr finds much attraction at (iernaux Hall. It is 
rumored "Billy" Bland is the cause. We are forced to believe this when we learn 
that he pays his class dues in extremely small installments. 

February 17. — Track season opens. Forty-five candidates declare their inten- 
tions. Even though the day is blustery many don their scanty garbs and bravely 
face the frigid winds of February. 

February 18. — Snyder and Cole in Fhysics : Cole — Snyder, get the h — off
