An Appreciation

A Preparatton 

HE "contents" of this book is before you. You can gather from a 
perusal of its items, without going further, some conception of what 
the general style and nature of the annual might be. But we trust 
your interest and curiosity will carry you on, and that patience will 
^^ unceasingly accompany you until you have observed and scrutinized 
every detail, examined and weighed the purport of every sketch and 
the significance of every portrait, and, furthermore, framed your 
conclusion as to its worth, in order that you may let us know 
whether or not it is up to the standard that a college of this size 
0^5)^ should possess. If the book does not create such an interest and 
entertain such a patience, then we are the ones tfi know it. We are 
the ones to blame. NO ONE ELSE ! 

Before going further, however, a few preliminary and explana- 
tory remarks are essential. It is true the Board of Editors, selected 
from the Junior Class, were chosen to assume the responsibilities 
and, accordingly, to compile the material and publish it. The Board 
(lid do this faithfully and untiringly, but it did not do it alone. Some outside as- 
sistance was necessary. So it is at this titue that the Board of Editors, in behalf 
of the Junior Class, or the Class of 1921, wishes to extend to these philanthropists, 
tor that is what they are, our sincere and profound appreciation. We realize that 
without this timely aid our plans would have been dreams and our efforts failures. 
We thank them. 

A word as to the Dedication. We chose as our victims to coniplete this sacred 
and solemn deed our beloved — ALUMNI. We trust our motives, which you will 
find expressed in a more appropriate and prominent place in this volume, will meet 
with yotir approval — in such a way that these motives will be impressed and incul- 
cated with an indelible stamp. If (he way is sufficiently i)a\'ed, let us jiroceed from 
page to page, because they follow in logical order, and take us deeper into our 
inner College life.

®o (§m JMuumr 

Old boy, are those gray hairs I see. 

Or do the Hghts deceive; 
And falsely have my eyes beheld 

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

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

To live in other days. 

In those old days of college life 

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

^'our college loves you yet. 
Well do I know that you recall 

A lad wlio left his liome 
And traveled here to live beneath 

The shelter of this dome. 

.And iTiind you of his timid look 

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

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

He watched his team's first game. 
And how there swelled up in his lieart 

A soinething hard to name? 


®o (But ^lunuii 

Now once again the scene is changed, 

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

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

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

His laughter on the air. 

At last a Senior you behold, 

With all a Senior's pride, 
But waiting to embark his raft 

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

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

There comes but once life's May. 

So treat them kindly, brother boy, 

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

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

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

Still holds its impress here. 

Still do we praise you in our songs 

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

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

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

That once were conned by you. 

Our mother longs for you, big boy. 

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

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

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

May feel your footsteps fall. 


Dream on, old boy, dream on toniglit — 

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

By the gift of just one tear. 

R. C. 1 . 



®i|e ^imimi's ^espouse 

Our paths along the ways of life — 

But scratches in the dust — 
So often turn our thoughts afar 

And memories so often rust. 

Yet down into the inmost depths 

Of the "old boys' " thoughts we trace 

So many a heart-beat let to live 
For his Alma Mater's race. 

All golden are those little beats 

Of days when all was gold. 
When college claimed our heart and hand 

And her Spirit claimed our soul. 

And each alumnus when he reads 

And knows his past here lives. 
Shall feel a tightening 'round his heart 

That only happiness gives.

HE men whn make a nation are men wlm see sublime visions for their 
coimtry: men who are not colonial or local, hut national; men of sac- 
rifice ; men of progress ; men with the genius of intellect and of char- 

Such were America's forefathers. From them, the founders of 
the Republic, we have received a noble heritage of civil and religious liberty, of 
sterling manhood, of equality of oppt)rtunity, and a free school, in which the prin- 
ciples of democracy ma_v be perpetuated. 

Today the worlfl looks to .\merica. The oppressed of all the world looks to 
America for light. fr)r ruling ]irinciples, for certain guidance, ancl for a helping 
hand. We have a mission to all mankind. 

Today America needs men ; men endowed with the spirit of the forefathers 
and trained in America's free schools and colleges and imiversities to meet the 
demands of a century characterized by com])lexities in industry, in politics, in 
religion, in law, and in education. 

To the problems which now confront America you have already dedicated 
your lives, for the ideal of the college man must be the ideal of service — service 
to state, to nation, to humanity. To the solution of these problems you have 
brought the training acquired by sacrifice, by perseverance, and by toil, under the 
direction and inspiration of our Alma Mater. 

Today we aspire to follow you; to take up the problems where you must 
leave them. We must enter ujion an era of even greater comi)]e.xity ; and we shall 
be able to succeed only to the extent to which we shall have your advice and coun- 
sel, your guidance and your inspiration. Our Alma Mater will be honored among 
men as you help us to overcome the problems which confront .\merica ;ind to 
lespond to the call of hiuiianity.

^ pinrb from tl]C JMinititt 



HE Alumni nf an institution, being all sons of the same mother, should, from 
an idealistic viewpoint, necessarily make up one large, useful and ever- 
increasing family, and should be synonymous with Brotherhood. Upon this 

theory of family the Alumni constitute the older members, while the student body 
represents the younger brothers. 

In this spirit of brotherhood the student should feel free to go to the Alumnus 
for succor and advice, and the Alumnus should be found ready to extend a helping 
hand to aid his younger brother in securing a foothold in life and in the laying of 
a foundation upon which he can build a career which will redound to his credit 
and success, the pride of the Association and the glory of his Alma Mater. 

R. Laurie Mitchell, '02. 


S to the relations which should exist between the Alumni Association and the 
student body. 1 am of the opinion that the relations should be close, friendly 
and fraternal. 

Geo. H. Calvert, Jr., '92. 



HE problem of the student is the problem of the Alumnus; the problem of 
the Alumnus is the future problem of the student. The College must be de- 
pended upon to help solve the problems of both, and it follows, therefore, 
that the interests of the Alumnus, student and College are almost so closely bound 
together as to be one and the same ; the unswerving loyalty of one to the others is 
essential to the paramount success of all. 

H. C. Byrd, '08. 

CARCELY an\thing means more for a college than a large and enthusiastic 
body of Alumni who make it their business to get behind every progressive 
move in the life and extended usefulness of the institution, thereby aiding 
their younger brothers — for that is what they are — who are striving to attain the 
position that these older brothers now hold. 

Henry Holzapfel, Jr. 

ILOSE and active relations between the Alumni Association and the student 
body is, in the end, the greatest and most substantial assurance the College 
has of a progressive and growing future. 

William P. Cole. Jr., 1910. 

1L( )SER co-operation between the Alumni and the student body is essential. 
Today the old "grad" feels lost when he comes back on Saturday afternoon 
and finds that all the old "Profs" that he knew have gone home for the day. 
It is the student's business to look after that Alumnus. You will find the latch- 
string out at the office of that Alumnus for every M. S. C. man thereafter, and he 
will be anxious to help the new graduate. 

E. N. Cory. 


J^ ^or^ frnm tl^c Alumiti 



HE relation between the student liody and the Aknnni of a college should be 
a strong and vital one. In this kinship the welfare and betterment of the 
nistitution must always be paramount. 
The students should find in the Alumni ideals to be attained, while the gradu- 
ates look to the students for the upholding and surpassing of traditions. Always 
closest co-operation is imperative, and if this is maintained, each finds a perfect 
complement in the other. 

L. B. Broughton. 



HE future of any institution depends upon the success of its Alumni. The 
success of the Alumni is dependent upon the success of the students. A good 
student makes a good Alumnus. A good Alumnus is one who glorifies the 
'nstitution he represents by first making a record in his chosen field, and second, 
by remembering his Alma Mater and taking a real interest in the development of 
the institution and the work of the students in every field of their endeavor. 

T. B. Symons. 



OOK UP, O ALUAINI ! Let your lights shine among men ! Let them ever 
symbolize the spiritual glory of dear Alma ALiter, and let them daily remind 
us of the source of our highest inspiration and of our lasting obligation to 
service in her behalf. 

F. B. BOMBERGER, '94. 



HE Alumni should ever be willing and anxious to keep in close touch with 
the undergraduate body, and give to those younger sons of their Alma Mater 
the full benefit of their experiences since they withdrew from the College as 

regular students. 

W. M. HiLLEGEisT, '12. 



HE attitude of the Alumni toward the student body should always be solici- 
tous and friendly. The Alumni should visit their Alma Mater whenever pos- 
sible, and ought to be welcomed cordially and fraternally by the student body. 

.[t is to the Alumni in the capacity of the big brother to whom the graduates have to 
look, in a large measure, for help and encouragement at the commencement of 
life's big tasks. 

H. B. HOSH.VLL. i(jo8. 



N my opinion, the Alumni should act as big brothers to the boys in school. 

J They should keep in closer contact with the working of their Alma Mater, 
and thus help the worthy student in his vital problem after graduation — 
the securing of a position. 

M. A. PvLE, 1919.

HE Maryland State College of Agricultvire, situated 
in a beautiful section of Prince George's County, 
about eight miles from Washington and thirty-two 
miles from Baltimore, is today one of the most promi- 
nent and successful educational institutions of the 

It has the distinction of operating under the first 
Legislative act of the Western Hemisphere to confer 
a charter for the establishment of a college in which 
it was mandatory on the part of the board of trustees to make experimental agri- 
culture a part of the regular curriculum. 

In 1856 the prominent planters of Southern Maryland became intensely inter- 
ested in the works of the great German scientist. Von Liebig, and determined to 
establish a school where the sons of Maryland farmers could receive instruction 
in scientific agriculture. 


In that same year a charter was secured from the State Legislature, and the 
high motives of those interested in the foundation of an agricultural college can 
be seen in the preamble to that charter, a part of which is as follows : 

"Whereas it has been represented to the Legislature that certain wise and 
virtuous citizens are desirous of instituting and establishing in some convenient 
locality within this State an agricultural college and model farm, in which the 
youthful students may especially be instructed in those arts and sciences indis- 
pensable to successful agriculture pursuit • and 

"Whereas it doth ap])ear to this Legislature that while the wise and learned 
•n the present age hath cultivated with laudable industry and applied with admir- 
able success the arts and sciences to other pursuits, the most necessary, useful and 
honorable pursuit of agriculturists has so far been lamentably neglected ; and 

"Whereas it is the province and duty of the Legislature to encourage and 
aid the philanthropic citizens in their efiorts to disseminate useful knowledge by 
establishing an agricultural college and model farm, which shall, in addition to 
the usual course of scholastic training, particularly indoctrinate the youth of 
Maryland, theoretically and practically, in those arts and sciences which, with 
good manners and morals, shall enable them to subdue the earth and elevate the 
State to the lofty position its advantages in soil, climate, etc., and the moral and 
mental caj^acities of its citizens, enlille it to attain." 


1856-HISTORY- 1920 


The charter named for the carryino- out of 'its provisions the following men, 
all of whom were among the most prominent citizens of the State: James T. Earle, 
John O. Wharton, Chas. B. Calvert, Nicholas B. Worthington, Walter W. W. 
Bowie, George W. Hughes, Ramsey McHenry, J. Carrcjll Walsh and A. B. Davis. 

To establish a college for 
instruction in scientific agri- 
culture was, to the less intelli- 
gent farmer of that day, an 
absurd proposition ; but the 
committee appointed by the 
projectors of the enterprise 
went to work energetically 
and succeeded in selling 2000 
shares of stock in the corpora- 
tion at $25 a share. 


At the beginning of the ^'"='^ '~ '""^ seventies 

year 1858 the committee reported that all the terms required by the charter had 
been met, and a meeting of the stockholders was called for the purpose of elect- 
ing a board of directors. The following board was elected : Thomas Perry, 
Allegany County ; John O. Wharton, Washington County ; George P. Davis, 
Frederick County ; A. B. Davis, Montgomery County ; S. T. C. Brown, Carroll 
County; Charles Carroll, Howard County; J. C. Brune, Baltimore City; W. H. 
Purnell, Worcester County ; John Merryman, Baltimore County ; Richard Mc- 
Henry, Harford County; C. B. Calvert, Prince George's County; Walter Mitchell, 
Charles County ; J. H. Sothron, St. Mary's County ; T. I. Graham, Calvert County ; 
M. B. Worthington, Anne Arundel County; C. M. Elderdice, Cecil County; James 
Alfred Pearce, Kent County ; Samuel Hamilton, Talbot County ; J. T. Earle, 
Queen Anne's County ; W. T. Goldsborough, Dorchester County ; R. C. Carter, 
Caroline County, and Dr. G. M. Dennis, .Somerset County. Charles B. Calvert 
was elected the first president of the board. 

It would be hard to find associated with any private or public enterprise in 
the whole history of the State of Maryland a roster of more substantial and able 
men than those representing the first board of directors of the Maryland Agricul- 
tural College. 


The first college building was completed in 1859, on the farm purchased for 
that purpose from Charles B. Calvert, Esq., and the same year the college work 
was organized and begun. The first curriculum comprised the departments of 
agriculture and agricultural chemistry, together with geology and mineralogy, 
physics, comparative anatomy and veterinary science, botany, entomology and 
ornithology ; mathematics, with surveying, engineering, mechanics and astronomy , 
ancient and modern languages ; moral and mental philosophy, with history and 
English literature. 

The college work was liegun with George C. Shaffer, professor of agricul- 
ture; H. D. Gough, professor of mathematics; Batista Lorina, professor of lan- 
guages, and Benjamin Hallowell, professor of philosophy. 


1856— HISTORY— 1920 


Benjamin Hallowell was elected president of the faculty, and this act alone 
was sufficient guarantee of the success of the new scholastic enterprise. In that 
day the name of Benjamin Hallowell stood for all that was noblest and best, both 
in the moral and intellectual life, and his name alone gave prestige to the new 
collegiate institution. 

About the end of the first year Dr. Hallowell was compelled to sever his con- 
nection with the College on account of ill-health, and the minutes of the board 
show that his resignation was accepted with the greatest regret. Dr. Hallowell 
was made an honorary member of the hoard for life. 

Benjamin Hallowell, in fact, conceived the Maryland Agricultural College. 
He was one of the most prominent educators of his time, and though not Mary- 
land born, was one of the greatest citizens of the State in his day. He was an 
astronomer and mathematician of the first rank and the author and editor of many 
scientific works. He was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1799, 
and died in Montgomery County, Maryland, in 1877. Sixty years of his life were 
spent in educating the youth of the country. 

He entered on duty as the first president of the Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege in October, 1859. He gave his views to the promoters of the enterprise, 
such an enterprise as he had longed to undertake, "in which the muscle would be 
trained simultaneously with the intellect, in the various mechanical industries and 
the agricultural and horticultural pursuits, budding, grafting and training fruit 
trees, vines, shrubbery, and the propagation of flowers, etc."' 

In his brief administration of the ?klaryland Agricultural College he brought 
to the front leaders among boys, just as play or the athletic field brings forward 
leaders in games. He made play of work, and realized one of the guiding 
thoughts of his career, that "everything can be moved if we touch the right 


The College continued to exist on its own resources for several years, but 
owing to the financial disasters and general depression incident to the Civil War, 
I he College was compelled, in 1866. to appeal to the State Legislature for financial 
assistance. The State rendered the desired aid, and, in consideration of the same, 
the stockholders made over to the State a one-half interest in the property of the 
College. This action practically gave to the State the ownership and directorship 
of the institution, for in the entire board of 17 trustees the State was represented 
by 12. The (Governor was ex-officio president of the board, and the President of 




the Senate, Speaker of the House, Comptroller, Attorney-General and Treasurer 
of the State were also ex-officio members. There were also six trustees appointed 
by the Governor, one from each Congressional district, the tenure of whose office 
was six years. The other five trustees were elected by the stockholders for six 


For the 20 years or more 
following 1866 the College 
grew but little, but managed 
to remain true, for the most 
part, to the ideals for which 
it was created. At the end of 
this period eight presidents 
had come and gone. In 1888 
Major Henry E. Alvord took 
charge of the institution, and 
it was during his administra- 
tion that the Maryland Agri- 
cultural Experiment Station 
was established. 



In i8y2 Ca])t. Richard W. Silvester was elected president of the College, and 
his great energy and executive ability soon began to transform the old College 
into a broader and better institution and to start it tipon a career of greater use- 
fulness and success, and under his administration of its affairs the Maryland 
Agricultural College was made to represent a high type of technological school, 
and began to be of inestimable benefit and credit to the State. Captain Silvester 
was born in Virginia, and was a graduate of the \'irginia Military Institute. He 
was a man of charming manner and unusual ability, and stood high among the 
educators of the East. President Silvester was executive of the College until 
forced by ill health to resign in 1912. 

The remarkable progress made by the College during the administration of 
President Silvester can be easily seen by the following statistics : 

1. Average annual attendance for the 15 years preceding 1892, 50 students. 

2. Average annual attendance for the 15 years following 1892, 165 students. 

1. Value of property in 
1892, $68,000. 

2. Value of property in 
1906, $198,600. 

1. \'alue of facilities for 
instruction in 1892, $8000. 

2. \'alue of facilities fur 
instruction in 1906, $56,000.

In March, 1905, was cele- 
brated the fiftieth anniversary 
of the founding of the College. 
This occasion was one of 
keen interest and attraction 
throughout the State. 

At this time the Adminis- 
tration Building had just been 
finished and the Old Barracks 
completely made over and re- 
furnished. These two build- 
ings supplied accommodations 
for two hundred students, and 
there was not a vacant room. 
Besides these and the group 
COMMENCEMENT ^f Experiment Station Build- 

'ngs, the cam[)us contained the west wing of the Engineering Building, the Chem- 
istry Building, the Library and Gymnasium, the Ht)spital and Morrill Hall. 

The new Administration Building contained the executive offices, the Chapel 
and Auditorium, and had dormitories on the second, third and fourth floors. 

The College barracks was a five-story brick building, containing student quar- 
ters and the domestic department. The dormitories were large, well ventilated, 
and provided with fire-escapes, bath and water rooms. All the buildings were 
lighted with gas and electricity and heated with steam from central plants on the 
college groimds. 

The mechanical engineering department was located in a two-story brick 
building, completed in i8y6, and in 1906 thoroughly equipped. It contained work- 
shops for woodwork, machinery-room well filled with modern equipment, a 
drawing-room, library and office, together with a large annex, designed to afford 
additional facilities in forging and foundry work, which was erected and equipped 
during 1904. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897, and in igo6 was thoroughly 
equipped. It contained sev- 
eral lecture-rooms, laborato- 
ries for practical work, and 
for the analyzing of fertilizers 
and feeding materials for do- 
mestic animals. This work 
was assigned to the professor 
of chemistry at this College by 
an act of the General Assem- 
bly. He was the State Chem- 

In 1893 the present library 
building was erected. For a 
time it served for both gym- 
nasium and library, but the 
second floor proved too small 




for library purposes, and the gymnasium floor was converted into a library and 
equipped with library files. 

Morrill Hall provided ample accommodations for the departments of agricul- 
ture, horticidture, physics, entomology, vegetable pathology and veterinary science, 
thus relieving the pressure of close quarters from which these departments have 
suffered and greatly extenilini;- th'.-ir opportunities for the development of high- 
grade scientific work. A green- 
house for work in entomology 
and vegetable pathology has 
just been added. 

The College infirmary, com- 
pleted in igoi, has proved a 
most efficient means of isolat- 
ing infectious diseases which 
might otherwise have become 
epidemic, thus seriously em- 
barrassing College work. It 
contained ample room for all 
emergencies and was fur- 
nished with modern hospital 

On the night of November 
29, 1912, occurred the disastrous fire which destroyed the two large dormitories 
with the dining-rooms, business offices, and the classrooms for Mathematics and 
Languages. The usual Thanksgiving Dance was in progress when fire was dis- 
covered darting forth from the ceiling of a room on the top floor of the Admin- 
istration Building. Every effort was made to control the fire, but the water supply 
failed, and in a short time there was nothing left except the grim, gloomy ruins. 
Worst of all, the College records extending over a period of more than fifty years 
were utterly destroyed. It looked for a time as though the College would have to 
suspend operations indefinitely, but the students saved the day. Four days after 
the fire every student save one reported for duty, resolved to keep the College 
going. Our neighbors in the nearby towns co-operated most generously, opening 
their homes to the boys of the homeless College, and for nearly two years they 
kept them, and kept them well. 

After the fire serious eft'orts were made to transplant the College to a differ- 
ent part of the State, but, fortunately, they did not prevail. The hallowed senti- 
ment of two generations that had been born for the old "College on the If ill'' was 
too strong to be denied, and 
all interests' ultimately united 
to raise a greater and a better 
College upon the cinders of 
the old M. A. C. 

In 1905 the College Faculty 
was composed as follows : R. 
W. Silvester, President and 
Professor of Mathematics ; 
Thomas H. Spence, \'ice 
President and Professor n\ 
Languages ; H. B. McDonnell. 
State Chemist and Professor 
of Chemistry ; J. S. Robinson, 
State Horticulturist and Pro- 
fessor of Horticulture; J. B. the ruins 



M. A. C. OF OLD 


S. Norton, State Pathologist and Professor of Botany ; T. B. Symons. State Ento- 
mologist and Professor of Zoology ; Edward Lloyd, Commandant and Professor 
of Military Science ; W. T. L. Taliaferro, Professor of Agriculture ; S. S. Buckley, 
Professor of Veterinary Science; F. B. Bomberger, Professor of English, His- 
tory and Civics; H. Lanahan, Professor of Physics; C. S. Richardson, Professor 
of Public Speaking and Physical Culture ; H. Gwinner, Professor of Mechanical 
Engineering; H. T. Harrison, Principal of the Preparatory Department. 

About 1909 the present Engineering Building was completed. Dr. T. H. 
Taliaferro had succeeded Professor Lanahan, and Professor Creese had come to 
teach Electrical Engineering. 

Changes and expansions ensued in several departments. Professor Hutt, 
then Professor Close, with Professor Novick in turn, had charge of Horticulture ; 
State Forester Besley inaugurated his lectures in Forestry, and there were added 
to the teaching force from among the graduates : Professor Cory, Zoology ; Pro- 
fessor Ruffner, Animal Husbandry; Professor Broughton, Chemistry; Profes- 
sor Byrd, Physical Culture. Professor Crisp, now the efficient chief of our Gen- 
eral Service, came to supplement the staft" in Engineering. 

The year IQCX) marked the death oi Dr. Joseph R. Owens, the Nestor of the 
Administration, he having assumed the office of Registrar and Treasurer in 
1890. Dr. Owens was a gentleman (if the old school, affable and lovable, and 
withal a talented financier. 

The College curriculum was kept abreast of the times and entrance require- 
ments were advanced as steadily as the progress of the high schools would permit. 

Short winter courses in agricultural and domestic sciences were inaugurated, 
and the benefits of the College thus greatly widened in scope. 

The College more than maintained its standing in the Intercollegiate Oratori- 
cal Association, and though the A. B. course had been discontinued, our repre- 
sentatives won more than their share of honors against colleges whose principal 
course was classical. 

In Military Training an entirel}" new spirit was aroused with the detail in 
igo8 of Captain E. T. Conley to be Commandant of Cadets. Under his aggres- 
sive administration the campus became a modified West Point ; a College Band 
was organized for the first time ; the battalion of cadets was given a week ofif 
for target practice at the army range down the Potomac ; a week was spent in 
camp each year, and so to be awarded an officers' commission on Commencement 
Day was no mere formality. 

In 1910, and again in 1911, M. A. C. was rated as having one of the ten best- 
trained cadet battalions in the United States, and consequently entitled to name 
a graduate for a commission in the regular army. Cadet Major O. H. Saunders, 
now Major, U. S. A., was named in 1910, and in 191 1 the honor was won by 
Cadet Captain L. M. Silvester, also at present Major, U. S. A. In 1908 the bat- 
talion, under Major Edward Lloyd, with Cadet Major Cooper, accepted an invi- 
tation to spend a week at the Jiunestown Exposition, where its drills excited 
marked approbation. 

Captain J. S. L^pham succeeded Captain Conley in 191 1. He made an excel- 
lent Commandant and was notable as a marksman. He was recalled to his regi- 
ment just after the fire in 1912. 

The Cadet Majors during the period covered by this sketch were L. F. Zerkel, 
H. D. Williar, C. F. Mayer, O. H. Saunders. E. A. Mudd, W. M. Kemp and H. H. 

The value of the training of cadets has been vindicated on the field of battle. 
Captain Basil Spalding, '09, was the first American officer to lead a detachment 
"over the top." Among others who won distinction in Europe I mention with 
honor: Williar. '07; Allison and Dryden, '09; Cole, Saunders and Tydings, '10; 
Sylvester, Mudd and Warthen, '12. 


Athletics during this period were marked by trinm])hs and reverses. Funds 
adequate to employ a full-time coach were nut available, and Professor Richardson 
was fain to resort to such volunteer and underpaid talent as he might be able to 
secure. However, the spirit 
of old M. A. C. never faltered. 
and by sheer pluck and despite 
obstacles the college more 
than held its own on gridiron 
and diamond.

dent body as a whole was unusually good.

1856— HISTORY— 1920 

Some statistics relating to the activities of the graduates of M. A. C, 1906- 
1913, may prove of interest. Present employment: Engineering and Chemistry, 
59; Teaching and County Agent Work, 34; Commerce, 15; Farming, 13; Gov- 
ernment Service, 7 ; U. S. Army, 6 ; Law, 4 ; Clergy, 2 ; Medicine, 2 ; Unknown, 5 ; 
Deceased, 7. Total, 154. 

Old M. A. C. has yielded seven score men in seven years who are utilizing 
the training secured at their Alma Mater to make this world a better place to 
live in. They may not all shine with dazzling achievements, but each is doing his 
share in his own efficient way. He has the hallmark of M. A. C. engraved upon 
him ; it stands for grit, perseverance and success.

'.AKING up the history of the Maryland State College in 1913, attention 

should be called to the fact that from the time of the fire up to June of that 

year Professor Thomas H. Spence was acting President of the College, 
owing to the illness and subsequent resignation of President Silvester. The 
administration of Professor Spence was characterized by marked executive ability, 
and the College continued to thrive under his supervision. It was during his 
administration that the temporary dining-hall and auditorium were constructed 
and the President's house converted into a dormitory for the students. 

In June of this year Dr. Harry J. Patterson, who for many years had been 
Director of the Experiment Station, was elected President of the College. 

Dr. Patterson took up the affairs of the institution with great energy and 
ability and began work on com])rehensive plans for the future development of 
the College. He at once reorganized the college work by dividing it into five 
divisions and appointing a dean of each division. These divisions were as follows : 
Agricultural Education, Prof. J. E. Metzger, dean; Agricurture, Dr. W. J. Talia- 
ferro, dean; Engineering, Dr. T. H. Taliaferro, dean; Sociology, Prof. F. B. 
Bomberger, Dean; Applied Science, Dr. H. B. McDonnell, dean. 

Dr. Patterson organized the Young Men's Christian Association and em- 
ployed Mr. B. H. Darrow as the director of this association. The President also 
gave permission for (ireek-letter fraternities to be organized among the College 
students, and Gamma Pi, now Sigma Nu, was the first fraternity organized. The 
other frats formed during Dr. Patterson's administration were Alpha Phi, now 
Kappa Alpha; Iota Sigma, now Sigma Phi, Sigma, and Nu Sigma Omricon. 

It must be admitted that the College work flourished under Dr. Patterson's 
administration, which ran until his resignation in 191 7, and that the College ma- 
terially improved and advanced in every respect during his presidency. 

The year 1914 marks an effort on the part of the College authorities and of 
the alumni to secure an appropriation from the State Legislature adequate for 
the immediate needs of the institution, and to procure such legislation as would 
effect beneficial changes in the administration and organization of the College. 
The private stockholders in the institution generously surrendered their holdings 
to the State, and through the offer of the College for sale and other legal proceed- 
ings, the State finally came into full legal ownership of the entire College plant. 

Unfortunately, through some mix-up or miscarriage in the Legislature, the 
different bills passed in the interest of the College by the 1914 session, including 



an appropriation of $300,000, were never validated, and the plans and hopes of 
those who were working in the interest of the College were temporarily thwarted. 
During the academic year 1914-15 Calvert Hall was dedicated. 
In connection with the military work at this time it may be noted that C. E. 

Robinson was Cadet Major 
and Major J. A. Dupray Com- 
mandant of the battalion.

Kensington, Md. ; Mr. Albert W." Sisk, Preston, Md. ; Mr. Carl R. Gray, Balti- 
more, Md. ; Mr. Frank J. Goodnow, Baltimore, Md. ; Mr. John M. Dennis, Rider- 
wood, Md. ; Air. Robert Grain, Baltimore, Md. ; Mr. Samuel M. Shoemaker, 
Eccleston, Md. 

• E'y legislative enactment the name of the College was changed from the 
Maryland Agricultural College to the Maryland State College of Agriculture, and 
even in the short time of two or three years the institution is now commonly 
spoken of as Maryland State. 

The academic work during the year 1916-17 was seriously disrupted by the 
exodus of students incident to the declaration of war with Germany. It is grati- 
fying to know that a large number of Maryland State boys immediately volun- 
teered for service. It is undesirable to make this short history prolix with un- 
necessary incidents and details, but this thing at least must be mentioned : That 
of the undergraduate students who left the College and joined the forces of the 
United States, practically 
every one subse(|uently re- 
turned and finished his course. 
Old Maryland State seemed 
mighty good to them after 
their experiences in the army. 

During this year Colonel 
John Pitcher was placed in 
charge of the battalion, and F. 
M. Haig was Cadet Major. 

Perhaps the greatest inci- 
dent, and one of the most far- 
reaching effect upon the Col- 
lege during this period was 
the election to the presidency 
of the College of Dr. Albert "°^ different 

Fred Woods, whose election occurred shortly after the resigii;iti(in of President 



1856— HISTORY-1920 

The Board of Trustees, after looking the entire country over for a man big 
enough to develop Maryland State into a great and powerful educational institu- 
tion, selected Dr. Woods, then Dean at the University of Minnesota, as the one 
man who could be trusted to do this work. 

President Woods is proving himself to be fully capable of performing the 
great task of making Maryland State College the equal of any in the country. He 
took hold of the work with great energy, practically reorganized the College cur- 
riculum, added a number of new departments, became an influential force among 
all the agricultural interests of Maryland, and even in this short time can see 
almost fulhlled his plans and hopes for a really great institution. 

Dr. Woods changed the divisions of the College into schools, and added to 
those already in existence the School of Liberal Arts, Domestic Art, and a Grad- 
uate School. In connection with the military work of the College the writer 
omitted to mention that during a part of this year Mr. Galen Sturgess, fresh from 
the Mexican border, acted as Cadet Major. 

In 1917 the new .Agricultural Building was completed and dedicated. This 
is the newest and most imposing structure on the College campus. It is now being 
used not only exclusively for agricultural purposes, but holds the administration 
offices of the College as well. 

The principal event in 1918 was the inauguration at the College of the work 
of the Students' Army Training Corps. This caused the regular College work to 
be suspended for a term. The S. A. T. C. comprised six hundred students, and 
until it was disbanded at the end of the first term the complete curriculum as 
recommended by the United States War Department was in full force. 

It may also be mentioned that during the war two hundred and fifty students 
of the United States Signal Corps received their training at this College. 

At the beginning of the calendar year 1919 the regular College work was 
resumed. As a large number of the students were in the army it was feared that 
the enrollment of the following fall would be 
distressingly small. It may be said, however, 
that much to the surprise and gratification of 
the authorities the number of students enter- 
ing at the beginning of the year 1919-20 was 
the largest in the history of the College — 485, 
including 35 co-eds. 

This new year was marked by a radical 
change in the military work of the institution. 
The new arrangement provided that all able- 
bodied students .should be members of the 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps, an organ- 
ization under the general supervision of the 
United States Government. The student's 
work in the training corps has a value of 
twelve College credits. 

Captain George A. Matile of the United 
States Army organized the work of the R. O. 
T. C. and is now in command of it. 

The method of College discipline was also 
radically changed in the fall of 1919. There 
was institued what is known as Student Gov- 
ernment. Under this method the students enter 1 
have their own governing bodies, and have organized and are carrying out a 
pure form of democracy. They alone cai. demonstrate the wisdom of this change, 
but so far student government has seemed to work very well, and in most 
respects has been a great improvement upon the old form of faculty supervision. 




Along with the inauguration of this new democratic form of government 
came the abohshing of "Rat Rules" and the introducing of the present-day 

"Freshman Code" in their 
place. The Class of 1921 was 
responsible for this, which 
was a move truly in harmony 
with the modern development. 

Among the College activi- 
ties it may be well to mention 
the membership of this insti- 
tution in the Oratorical Asso- 
ciation of Maryland Colleges. 
In this organization Maryland 
State students have won the 
tirst gold medal five times, and 
the second medal four times. 

The annual intersociety de- 
bate between the Poe and the 
New Mercier Societies is another activity of constant importance and interest on 
the campus. The interest in this event has been stimulated by the awarding of a 
silver loving cup to the winning society, and a gold medal to the best individual 
debater. These debates were begun during the administration of Dr. Patterson 
as President of the College. It is he who today is still offering the Patterson Cup, 
while the Alumni Association continues to keep pace by donating the always-cov- 
eted gold medal. 

Another College activity is that of the editing and financing of the student 
publications. There are two of these : First, the Maryland State Review, which 
is a weekly paper, and second, the Reveille, which is the year-book of the Col- 
lege. The former is published by a board elected by the Student Body ; the latter 
is published by a board elected by the Junior Class. Both are highly representa- 
tive of the forward movement enveloping the entire institution. 

During the past year a dramatic club called "The Players" was organized. 
This organization by the end of the year will have j^resented two large plays. 
This is a progressive move concurrent with the inauguration and advancement 
of a highly efficient Liberal 
Arts School. 

The number of fraternal or- 
ganizations during the present 
year has greatly increased. 
Prior to this time, as men- 
tioned, there were four such 
bodies to a student enrollment 
of three hundred, whereas 
now, to a student body of 
four hundred fifty, there are 
seven fraternities and one so- 
rority. Two of these repre- 
sent Nationals of substantial 
character. Two are newly- 
formed locals built around a more recreation 
nucleus of influential energetic students. The Nationals are: Alpha Zeta and Phi 
Alpha. The locals are : Sigma Tau Alpha and Sigma Delta. 


1856— HISTORY— 1920 

Covering the period from 1913 up to the present the athletics of Maryland 
State College have constantly improved, until novv^ Maryland State is recognized 
throughout the East as ranking among the large and prominent institutions in 
athletic reputation. She holds the undisputed championship in Maryland in foot- 
ball, and developed the champion relay team of the South. In an unusually ambi- 
tious schedule the baseball team up to the close of the season in 1919 had met but 
two defeats. Such institutions as the University of Virginia, Princeton and Yale 
are now on the regular athletic schedules. 

Whatever else may be omitted from this hurried and fragmentary history 
of the last few years of the College, there is one thing that must not be omitted, 
and that is that the remarkable excellence of our athletic teams at this time is due 
entirely to the splendid coaching of Mr. H. C. Byrd. Mr. Byrd has also shown 
great energy and ability in his work as assistant to the President, and his executive 
position has assisted him in giving to the athletics of Maryland State the consid- 
eration and prominence which college athletics deserve. 

The College Faculty lost a number of valuable men during this period on 
account of the small salaries which they received, among whom may be especially 
mentioned Prof. Henry T. Harrison, who had been a member of the faculty for 
26 years. Professor Harrison left to take a more lucrative position in New 

During the period covered here two deaths occurred in the faculty — that of 
Professor Stoddard, head of the Department of Vegetable Culture, and of Mr. 
Herschel Eord, Registrar and Treasurer. Both of these men were invaluable to 
the institution, and both had the respect and affection of all connected with the 

For several years the old Commencement Week has given way to what is 
now called Commencement and Farmers' Day. Upon this occasion thou- 
sands of farmers and their families have been visitors of the College. For the 
past few years May 30 — Decoration Da\' — has served as this "day of days." The 
year 1920 will, however, find itself back to the old Commencement Week. Pros- 
pects indicate a larger and more extensive program at this time than ever before 
in the history of the College. 

Maryland State is now well on the way to becoming a great institution. It 
has an able President. It has a most capable faculty. Its affairs are administered 
by a competent board of trustees. The present Legislature will probably appro- 
priate sufficient money to erect a new Administration Building, Dining Hall, 
Gymnasium, and several Dor- 
mitories, all of which are 
badly needed. The plans are 
drawn of the necessary build- 
ings which are to be added, 
and the schemes for the 
greater development of the 
College are well under way 

There is one thing, ln)w- 
ever, that must be mentioned 
before this article is finished, 
and that is the work of the 
Experiment Station and of the 
Extension Service. 

The Experiment Station is noon 

doing a sjjlendid work under tlie able dictatcirshi]) of Dr. H. J. Patterson, win; 
been in charge of the Station fur thirty-lwo years. 


I856-HISTORY— 1920 

The Extension Service, under the unusually energetic and capable admin- 
istration of Director T. B. Symons, has grown into a great and useful institution. 

Taking an inventory of what has already been done here at the College, and 
what will assuredly be done in the next five years, together with the remarkable 
work of the Experiment Station and the Exten- 
sion Service, leads one to believe that there will 
soon be a realization of what not long ago seemed 
a dream — the once Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege, now Maryland State College, will become 
Maryland State University, and in actuality one 
of the greatest educational institutions of the 
United States. 

A list of the Presidents of the College may be 
of interest: Prof. Benjamin Hallowell, President 
of the Faculty, 1859-60; Rev. J. W. Scott, i860; 
Professor Colby, 1860-61 ; Professor Onderdonk, 
1861-64; Prof. N. B. Worthington, 1864-67: 
Prof. C. L. C. Minor, 1867-68; Admiral Franklin 
Buchanan, 1868-69; Prof. Sanniel Regester, 
1869-73; Gen. Samuel Jones, 1873-75; Capt. W. 
H. Parker, 1875-83; Gen. Augustus Smith, 1883- 
87 ; Allen Dodge, pro tem., 1878-88 ; Major Henry 
E. Alvord, 1888-93; Capt. R. W. Silvester. 189J- 
1913 ; Prof. Thos. H. Spence, pro tem., 1913 ; Dr. 
H. J. Patterson, 1913-17 ; Dr. A. F. Woods, 1917-.

"Foryivc every man's faults except your own' 

OMINC, to us froiu Hopkins in the fall of '18 — we hold that dis- 
tinctly to his credit — "Abe" entered the Junior Class and at once 
made a place for himself in the life of our college. 

"Abe" is one of those fellows who causes us to feel that tlie 
party is not complete without him. 

With "Abe" at the piano "jazzing" away, things inanimate come to life; 
chairs and tables have been known to do a "fantango" when "Abe" tickles 
the ivories. As for human beings, "Abe"s" playing can make the poorest 
dancer in the world look like old man perpetual motion himself, astride the 
vanishing tail of a comet. 

By common consent of both his friends and enemies "Abe" has been 
elected president of the Lovers' Club. Incidentally "Abe's" enemies are 
those who at one time or another have tried "to beat his time." 

There is a popular minor to the effect that at the time of the threatened 
destruction of the world on December 18. "Abe" was flooded with invitations 
from fair infatuated ones entreating that their last night on earth be spent in 
his arms. 

\MTen "Abe" is not otherwise occupied it is said that he is taking a 
course in Cliemistr\' at our college. 

We'll say this, though for a man with so much time of his own. he sure 
makes good marks. 

Best of luck "Abe" — carry on.

"To live is not all of life." 

IWAY baclv when M. A. C. became M. S. C. "The Pride of Sharon," 
after much ratiocination, decided that State could not thrive without 
his talents. Hence "Chaucer" Ad}' came to College Park. 

He at once began to substantiate his theories upon the value of 
Parisian literature and the propagation of podless beans for the Irish 
;iavy. "Chaucer" kept Cabs House in an eternal uproar with his boning. His 
principal occupations were correcting the ]wsition of his bed and punishing Buzz 
Morgan with the gloves. 

At Cabs "Chaucer" took lessons on the harmonica and bones. Having l)ecome 
proficient upon these instruments of torture, he has lately been composing music 
for Paderevvski. 

"Chaucer" has always been a bear with the ladies, es]:)f'cially since Gerneaux 
Hall came into existence. He knows them all by their middle names, and teaches 
dancing at mid-week parties. 

As manager of other sports, Ady has shined brilliantly. His water-bagging 
ruid bed-dumping teams have never lost. 

Here's to our hero of Cabs ! May his fame never cease to spread.

HARAC'l ERIZED by his friends as a "regular fellow," enjoying the 
highest popularity, which he seems thoroughly capable of standing 
without becoming egotistical, "Dutch" Axt stands in a class by him- 
self. "Dutch" is one of those few human beings who can do anything 
and literally "get away with it." No matter how disappointed you 
feel at not having received a letter from the only girl, "and if you feel so blue 
you are almost purple," then if you come in contact with "Dutch" you are sure to 
forget your troubles and feel human again. 

"Dutch" matriculated in the fall of 1914, coming from Baltimore City College. 
Athletics immediately occupied his attention, and the years following found him 
playing on State's football team. His athletic ability lies not only in the football, 
but in track and lacrosse also, he being captain of the latter in his Freshman year. 
In his Junior year he interrupted his studies long enough to enlist and spend a few 
months abroad. In the fall of 1919 he rematriculated, and at the present time is 
studying hard for the. coveted sheepskin. "Dutch" enjoys the privilege of being 
president of the E.xclusive Lovers' Club. Every evening finds Axt leisurely walk- 
ing back in the country with one of the belles of College Park. Just how "Soon" 
we do not know. 

Whatever phase of life you undertake, "Dutch, 
for a successful career. 

our best wishes go with you

"The 7vall is hut a trifle ; U']i\ worrv." 

H, fair ones, gaze upon this picture before you! Only a far-famed 
artist could mould such an ecclesiastical beauty. No, it is not Harold 
Lockwood or Wallace Reid, but the same Barton, the demure little 
creature that entered our Freshman class four years ago wearing his 
first suit of long trousers and waving before him the banner of the 
"Eastern Shore." 

"Shorty'' evaded the terrible Sophomores and returned the following year a 
regular college man. He thought he wanted to be a bovine engineer, but later 
becoming aware of the fact that he had a natural tendency toward "Fertilizers,"' 
he specialized in agronomy and aspired to follow the way that his forefathers had 
prepared before him. 

"Shorty" has an affinity f(ir the girls. Perhaps it is due to his training luidcr 
Captain Matile that he has been able to command the hearts of so many. In evi- 
dence therefore he is often seen entering the postoffice with a wheelbarrow. 

You will be missed, "Shorty," by the many friends that you ha\-e formed, but 
ihe wish of the class goes with you into happiness.

"Be not simply (jood ; he good for something.'' 

T was in the fall of 'i6 when this quiet, modest young chap from the 
happy hunting grounds of the soft-shelled crab and oyster registered 
at this "institootion."' He became a member of the Cabs Country 
Club, and there, under Father Tarbutton and Dan'l Boone, his edu- 
cation was well begun. "Ted" soon let it be known to everybody that 

he was here for business. "Profs'' found in him a real student, and as a specialist 

in entomology he was bound to be a wizard. 

"Ted" developed remarkable ability as an organizer, and the literary firm of 
"Bissell-Ady" established quite a reputation. Their "nineteenth Century Poetry 
and Prose" was ever in demand. As a literary critic, "Bissell-Ady, Inc.," was 
known as an authority. 

"Ted's" activities have shown a broad-minded plan of development. He was 
quite versatile in his' service with the student organizations as a debater, actor, 
executive and social man. The Battalion claimed him to be the clever little captain 
with the big voice. This vocal ability, a natural asset, was developed as First 
Lieutenant and Adjutant of the Battalion in his Junior year. The success of his 
brilliant military career can be traced to the summer training at Plattsburg and 
Camp Lee. 

"Ted" is a fine fellow, but he has a startling affinity for buggy creatures — 
yes, those creeping, crawling, flying, Stirling insects. .Any insect is easily de- 
scribed and classified by this illustrious scientist. It must be said in his favor, 
though, that he shows care in the choice of his friends. 

The class join in wishing you all kinds of good luck and success in your life 
work. But, "Ted," do have a care for your attachments. Remember there is a 
special exterminator for every insect, and our asylums are full of bugs.

"// it is v.ot true, do not say it.'' 

S|ST ! Who is that goocl-looking chap with the shy little blond ? Why, 
it's none other than "Brazz"' Burnside himself. Ladies' man, did you 
say ? Well, there is none on the campus who can rival this young- 
imitator of Henry VHI when it comes to affaires d'cocw. 

But the accomplishmeiUs of this denizen of Hyattsville are not 
limited to social things alone. As a horticulturist he has specialized in the study 
of nuts and persimmons. To the casual observer this indicates very little, but it 
really reveals much of the man's inner being — nuts and persimmons. 

Every man who has ever known "Brazz" agrees that he is a good-natured, 
prepossessing, witty nut — slightly cracked. Any of the fair dames Burnside has 
rushed will tell you that the colder, the frostier she treated him the sweeter he 
became — the old persimmon. Persimmons also pucker their lips at times. 

"Brazz" is a business man by nature, and some day he will have a mono])()Iy 
of nuts and persiiumons. 

The class wishes yf)U well, Burny.

'Mirth is God's medicine 

Y friend.s, cast your critical eye for a moment upon the noble countt 
nance before you. What do you see? Ah, you have guessed it — the 
noblest work of nature. But don't be alarmed, for it is only our dear 
old Hap, the gentleman "Hecker" from Baltimore county, harmless 
as a turtle-dove. 

Though quite a dignified gentleman. Hap still retains one feature that will 
forever brand him — the never-failing plow walk. As said before, he is from 
Baltimore county, and states that if there is anything in agriculture imknown to 
that county, the world has not heard of it. 

Primarily, Hap is a granger. Since enrolling everybody in the vicinity of 
College Park he may be found meandering at large throughout the State on a 
silent hunt for prospective grangers. Much of Hap's success in this has been due 
to his ability as an orator, which is self-confessed. He has even been heard to 
admit it. On all occasions he will readily consent to convince you and all within 
the hearing of his voice "Why Farmers Should Send Their Sons to College.'" 

For versatility, Hap is without equal. From time to time he has been found 
in the vicinity of Gerneaux Hall, and even Carroll House, but he has also at other 
times gone far afield. While in other persons this might be regarded as incon- 
sistency, it can only in Hap's case be attributed to versatility. Take notice, ye 
members of the fair sex. Hap is still in the race. 

Hap has, however, made himself liked by all on our campus. Through his 
courtesy and consideration he has won a place for himself in our life, and we are 
convinced that these sterling qualities will win fur him well-merited success in 
whatever he may undertake.

"// is folly to shiver over last year's snoiv." 

QUASCO was the village that offered this yoting man on the altar of 
knowledge. That he has fully repaid her can readily be seen by the 
look of intelligence that siirroimds his physiognomy. 

luitering State the fall of 1915, Pete has astounded the wise tnen 
of the Agricultural Extension Department by his brilliant discourses 
on the advantage of the Student Grange, and the superiority of oxen as a means 
i)f conveying children to educational institutions. 

"Pete" showed his true metal by enlisting at the outbreak of war. He won 
his commission at the Third Officers' Training Camp and was assigned to Camp for further duty. We now know why the German army surrendered Novem- 
ber 1 1, lyiS. It is no secret, kind reader, Pete was to embark that particular day.

"Love a lot of girls a little, but not a little girl a lot. 

LEN" is one of the Old Guard who rt-turned to AI. S. C. alter serving 
a term in the Aviation Corps or the Iceland Artillery, or something- 
like that. Having chosen education as a vocation, he has spent the 
greater part of his Senior year in acquainting his friends in Section 
A with the mysteries connected with the ancient, elusive numeral 
seven — also eleven. His flying experience has served him well in holding down 
I'is bed, for on several occasions this year it has attempted to do an Immelman 
turn and a nose dive during the wee sma' hours of the night. But "Clen'' has 
always succeeded in making a "three-point landing" — on his nose, chin and collar 
button. After these occasions we have always felt that he would have made a 
better mule skiiuier. 

"Clen' is easily the wickedest hoof slinger in the Senior Class, also a bear 
with the ladies — in his estimation. He has sunk considerably in ours since he per- 
mitted a certain young lady's hands to suffer from the cold during one of our 
winter's evenings — to the extent that she even complained to the student body of 
his negligence. 

Accuse not Nature, gentle reader ; she hath done her part. With all his faidts 
we love him still, and he can be depended upon to leave LARGE footprints upon 
the sands of tiiue.

'53' Jove! it is perfectly ahjcctii'c siiperfcflous. 

BOVE we have a fairly good representation of the handsomest man 
in the class without doubt. We take pleasure in introducing the no 
less celebrated personage of Bousson Davison, more familiarly known 
as "Davie," who hails from the hustling town of Riverdale, Md. In 
his first year at college he had the record of being present at more 
"rat" meetings than any other man. He never was a great admirer of "Commy," 
but did manage to get up as far as First Lieutenant in his Senior year, when all 
of a sudden he decided he would cast his lot with real soldiers and bag a (lerman 
or two. He did not get the German, but did see some real old scrapping, and man- 
aged ro get back to school to finish before getting gray. 

There is only one thing he is not able to see, and that is why the women used 
to come for miles to kiss his feet when he was a little fellow, and wliy they even 
refuse to do it now, as he hasn't grown nuich. 

We hope that Davison's future may be both happy and prosperous.

'Tiveet, ttvcct ; I'm a cow." 

fN September, 1916, there arrived at College Park a young man, fresh 
from the land of the fried chicken and beaten biscuit. It took him 
some time to become accustomed to his new surroundings, but under 
the tutelage of the famous engineering firm of "Doc," "Mike" & Co. 
he soon rose to his place in the sim. Then there came the rumbling 
sound of the drums and trumpets calling us all to — the Junior Prom. "E. E." 
journeyed away from home to learn to trip the light fantastic, and, my readers, a 
great evolution took place within this young man. Sunday night dates became 
frequent, and the ill-ease of a full-dress suit soon became a thing of the past. 

But, my readers, with all his frivolities he has still had time to apply himself 
to his studies and to earn the respect and admiration of his professors and fellow- 
students. Let us hope that some day his name will be inscribed on the rock of 
perpetuation, emblazoned above such mediocre scientists as Tesla, Edison and

[RANKLIN D. DAY was born April 16, 1895. on a farm at Clarksburs;-, 
Montgoiner)- County, Md. His genius was displayed at an early 
age, graduating from the Rockville High School, when he completed 
both the Commercial and Academic courses in four years. Ere long 
after his matriculation at M. A. C. in 1914, students and faculty rec- 
ognized in Frank a striking personality. Frank is a leader and an executive. The 
record of activities show that. And while attending faithfully to many official 
duties he maintained a scholarship ranlring among the best ever established at 
M. S. C. Meanwhile he has worked his way through College. In the fall of 1917 
Frank withdrew from College to enlist as an army field clerk. He served in Lon- 
don, Paris, Italy, and Belgium, traveling more than 5000 miles in Europe. He 
returned to the States in August, 1919, and re-entered College in September. Upon 
the reorganization of the Student Assembly, Frank was elected to its presidency, 
probably the biggest and most honorable position that the student body could be- 
stow upon any of its members. 

Great responsibilities and honors await Frank. His course is Agricultural 
Education, but we expect no one course to limit his capabilities, for Frank Day's 
initiative will spell success anywhere. 

Here's to Frank, good-natured as the days are 

Success awaits his kind.

'Happiness is the result of ivork zvell done." 

PRODUCT of Washington County, a persistent worker, always active 
in college activities, and especially so if putting something across for 
a better State College, spell Tom's pedigree, so far as State is con- 
cerned. The pinnacle of his collegiate fame was reached in 1919, 
when he captured first place in judging both butter and cheese at the 
National Dairy Show. 

Evidently Tom early adopted the motto "See everything and spend nothing," 
tor he spent the summer of 1916 sight-seeing in Mexico, and later, taking advan- 
tage of the World War, toured Europe as a member of General Pershing's Staff 
luider the nom de plume of Second Lieutenant, A. G. D. 

Occasionally Downin thinks of marriage. P.ut. thinking ahead, as he usually 
does, he is probably worrying more about the cost of baby carriages than of cap- 
turing a wife. We do not know. Anyway, if he is as successful in selecting a 
partner as he has been in choosing roommates who wear the same sized clothes as 
he does, he should be extremely successful. So here's luck !

f TOP for a monitnt and try to recall if yoti have ever been to a dance 
in the vicinity of College or Washington at which the above was not 
I in evidence. 

Shortly after John arrived at College he was taught the ropes by 
the Sophomores, and, being of a generous nature and not wishing to 
be given anything for which he didn't return value received, turned his attention 
to guiding the rats in his Sophomore year. 

Wishing to aid all those in trotible he went to the aid of his Uncle Sam. 
After a short time of arduous labor he was awarded a commission. He returned 
to upliold the honor of the Class of '20 after a series of fights along the Potomac. 

He was selected to represent the College at the National Dairy Show in 1919 
as a representative of both the Stock Judging Team and Dairy Products Team. 

Whatever phase of life you undertake, "Johnnie," whether it be in Africa, 
France or New Zealand, vou have the best wishes of the Class of '20.

"Today is the touiurrow you worried about yesterday." 

HARLES S. ELLIOTT, commonly known as ''Pete," a most worthy 
gentleman, hails from Westover, Md. 

In the younger, unsophisticated years of his life, he aspired to 

chemistry, but as its tricks and tabulations proved too arduous a task 

in his serious young life, he finally branched off and condescended to 

;nirsue Arts. 

In his Junior year, when so many of our young men went into the service, 

"Pete"' "went out" for aviation, and what a "flyer" he turned out to lie. Upon his 

discharge, following the close of the war, not satisfied with his already faithful 

service, he acted as a passenger pilot. 

Finally, by might and main, he succeeded in breaking away, and one day sev- 
eral weeks after College had started we were glad to see his .smiling covmtenance 
appear once more upon the hill. 

"Pete" was for quite a while an ardent woman hater, but finally he joined the 
"Lover's Club," and has been a most ideal member ever since. 

Besides aviation, "Pete's" pet hobby is lacrosse. Those men who have come 
in contact with him know just what a "nasty stick he slings." He is a brilliant 

Last but not least, "Pete" is a scholar. The midnight oil that he I)urns would 
fill an enormous tank, and then some. 

Among the fellows "Pete" is a popular man. He is a man clear through and 
a true friend. As he finally passes through the portals of our College he will carry 
with him the highest regard of his fellow-students, along with their ardent wishes 
for a brilliant future.

ONG, lean, lanky, and from Port Chester, are this "Swede's" dominant 
characteristics. 'Twas many years ago when this promising "tow- 
head" youth traversed the hills of College Park, and even as a lamb 
gambols over the green fields, so did this youth anticipate the coming 
into his possession of a two-acre farm ujion which he could grow soy 

Now, coming from the ridiculous to the sublime, "Swede" is one of the chaps 
that will remain long in the memories of the ones who knew him. His easy-going 
manner and his self-sacrificing disposition, along with his broad smiling face, has 
caused him to be a man-to-man friend. 

As to his athletic ability, he took to football as a chick to water, liut in the 
prime of the 1917 season he received a commission in the Second U. S. Cavalry 
and went overseas. 

After returning from 15 months' service "over there" he felt the calling of 
his Senior year, so returned last fall to finish his course in "Weed-Seedoligy." He 
was one of the main flankers on the Varsity team, thus winning his "M" and leav- 
ing behind him a record to be proud of. 

"Swede," here's from the Class of '20! May you concjuer the obstacles of 
life as you devour the victuals in the Mess Hall.

"Small in stature, but titanic in the eyes of women." 

ANY years ago. when "Boo Hoo" and "Doc" Taliaferro were young 
men, a mere babe in arm.s toddled up the cinder path. This infant 
was in) other than little "Doc" entering the gateway of knowledge and 
getting his first fumes of H^S. 

As a social butterfly and ex]xinent of trick jazz steps, little Dorion 
is unsurpassed. He may be seen most any time in the Palace of "Bevo. Chickens 
and Jazz," with a certain member of the other sex, going through the newest and 
most artistic poetry of motion, and we notice he is getting it down "'pat." 

"Doc" has had a very versatile military career. He arose from a lowly bugler 
to a commissioned officer in "C" cotnpany. 

This friend of everyone will be missed after this year, and all of us wish him 
success. "May Ireland always be Heaven, and may there be an orchestra there."

'A successful man is seldom behind time, be the occasion great or small." 

HE young gentleman whose countenance peeps out at yon from the 
above "[jortrait'' is one whose knowledge and wisdom causes un- 
bounded admiration. 

This young Solomon resides occasionally in Hyattsville ; it is, 
incidentally, his home. 

"Zeke," as he is familiarly known, is the boy who, when all others have failed 
to give satisfactory information to our l)eloved professors, unassumingly rises to 
the occasion and in a most remarkable manner tackles the elusive problem. 

Evidently "Zeke" is a ladies' man or something just as disastrous to his beauty 
sleep, for as far back as we can remember we have never seen him "pull in" to 
classes on time. He generally gets there, however, and when he once gets seated 
his elaborations and amazing wisdom exert themselves. 

When the final time comes for us to pass out into the world with its trials and 
tribttlations, we know, "Zeke," that you will hold up your end. So, here's to you. 
"Zeke" ! May all the blessings of a happy future be yours.

"Never let ivork interfere with pleasure." 

SN'T it only right and proper that such a distinguished member of the 
Class of 1920 should be born and flung full grown at us from the 
wilds of Western Maryland in the vicitiity of Brownsville. He was 
so great in the beginning of his career among us that there was little 
to be done for his betterment. A little perstiasion by the "Sophs'' 
his first year ; his kindly directing of a few rats into the mystic realms of the 
unknown during his second year ; the roimding of the rough corners of his social 
self by the prominent dames of Washington, Hyattsville and Dickerson, cul- 
minating in his brilliant performances at the "Junior Prom,'' in his Junior year, 
and the climax of his collegiate life in his trip to Chicago as a member of our 
Stock Judging Team during his Senior year, were the only steps required to make 
him the finished product he now is. 

The application of these principles will undoubtedly make "Doehead" one of 
the wealthy and prominent farmers of the western part of our State.

AZE on this niorlal. He was bequeathed to us by Ames University 
the spring of igi8. Kensington, the abiding place of the illustrious, 
claims this phenomenon as one of her sacred few. Many are the tales 
that reach our ears of his escapades in this quaint village. 

Reigning as king of the barber-shop club, his brilliant discourses 
on all subjects, ranging from "Why I travel to Frederick every week-end" to 
"The superiority of climax," have made the learned gasp and the ignorant wonder 
why he came. 

When not holding forth at p]ill White's emporium or the "Stable," he may be 
found in the soils lab. as assistant to the professor, it being his duty to keep the 
place free from cobwebs and microbes. 

All joking aside, "Moon" is one of the po])ular men of the campus, so wiiat 
more could a mere mortal desire? The Class of '20 wishes that the "Sun" shine 
bright on vou. "Moon."

OCR'S" career dates back to tliat autiunn day when he kissed the old 
spotted cow good-by. rang tlie cat's tail, picked np his carpet-bag and 
said "So long!" to the old farm. When he wobbled up the campus 
hill like a silly gander, "Hocks'' was a sight for the gods. Recorder 
Spence and his retinue of fatherly proctors immediately registered 
George as an "animal nut."' and it was not until his Sophomore year that "Hocks" 
was able to convince the "profs" that he wanted to take chemistry. Since that 
lime he has greatly added to the calcimining effect of the "lab." 

"Hocks' " success at State can be directly traced to the fine start he made in 
1916. He was one of the last of the family of "Cabs" — that explains all. No side 
of his education, not even his studies, was neglected. That our country lad was 
soon to become a social parasite was evidenced from the first. During his stay 
of four years here George has captured many of the fair sex's hearts, and we feel 
.issured that "Hocks" will continue to be the same old "ladies' man." 

It was at "Cabs" that George first starred in athletics. Those end runs 
against Day's Haytossers were ever famous. There he learned to swing a wicked 
lacrosse stick. Boxing and slugging matches with his pal Atkinson and poker 
games with "Lony" Morgan were his favorite pastimes. As ati einbryo naval avi- 
ator he made a pretty good "gimper." 

Seriously, though, "Hocks" has the qualifications and forcefulness with which 
to at*'ain honors after he leaves College. His indefatigability and unselfishness 
have led to real popularity and have gained many friendships. His classmates 
know George will ever be a leader.

OU are now. masculine reader or seeker after truth, looking at an 
exact likeness of the first woman who ever graduated cii course at 
Maryland State, and let it he said that the honor could not rest upon 
more worthy shoulders. "Lisheth" was one of the baby members of 
our class when we first became identified with the institution. Rather 

than disrupt the school, she early assumed the obligation of loving us all, which 

afifection has been heartily reciprocated. 

"Lisbeth" is a jazz baby and never walks twice with the same step, for she 
knows every step of the terpsichorean art and delights in tripping the light fan- 
tastic toe. When defining the looks of any masculine object she says, "Oh, he 
looks all '.spifty' !" — which settles the fact that the hero is worth taking notice of. 

In case all do not know, we will say here that "Lisbeth" is an entomologist, 

and for the past four years has been seen on the campus madly chasing ? 

bugs. Whether your future field be in the home or with your beloved bugs, the 
Class of 1920 has a heart lull of good wishes for you, "Lisbeth," and knows that 
vour efforts will be crowne<l with the success you so richly deserve.

'Carry on, Jack, I'M all right." 

OU are now gazing upon the homely countenance of the lowest form 
of animal existence — the "Shanty Irish." This Irish lad came down 
here from little old New York, and his idea in coming was to show 
"the guys of State" what a real "tough guy'' is like. Instead of find- 
ing a bunch of babies here, he was very much surprised when he 
found a "tougher gang" than his gunman friends of the Bowery were. 

These so-called tough guys are always ready for trouble, so when the war 
broke out, "Cholly," the dashing, daring yotmg fellow, proceeded to Plattsburg 
and won hitnself a comtnission. He was assigned to the 165th Infantry, which 
was the old Irish 69th of New York, and got on one of the first transports bound 
for Liverpool. He served as First Lieutenant in the Regimental Machine Gun 
Company of the 165111, and was lucky enough to get only one wound in nine trips 
"over the top." 

After he had helped make the world "safe for democracy'' he buzzed up the 
hill one day in the fall of lyiy in an old army 'bus, with more service stri]5es than 
the driver. "Johnnie" has spent the most of his Senior year playing around with 
his "pedigree Pope Hartford," and, in fact, he can tell more about it than the 
cows he is supposed to study. The car just suits "Johnnie,"' as it is rough, ready, 
and has plenty of speed. "Cholly"' is very popular at State, and his classmates 
wish him all kinds of success.

"Ambition should be made of sterner stuff." 

RIENDS, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your eyes." Here is the 
young man who would have backed Julius Caesar off the map if they 
had been contemporaries. His middle name is initiative and energy. 
Who among us has not seen the results of this characteristic? In his 
freshman year, through the value of his assistant coaching, we were 
able to produce one of the best teams in our history. He was a mainstay in stop- 
ping the onflow of Penn State during our game with them in 1917. After Thanks- 
giving Tubby left to enter the service, and remained in it eighteen months before 
returning to us again. By hard and industrious work he was able to regain his 
collegiate standing, and so will graduate with his class this year. But stop ! 
Though busy with studies, mess hall and other activities, he was able to dig deep 
into the realms of medicine and discover a new disease of horses — ammonia. He 
hasn't told us how to combat it. but. nevertheless, the discovery has placed him in 
our hall of fame. 

Stanley, old boy, keep that supply of initiative forever flowing, and we pre- 
dict a pleasing future for you.

RIKNDS, meet J. Earl Keefauver. Mr. Keefauver admits he is good- 
looking, that he is a student, that he is a lady-killer, and that he 
intends to marry the minute any girl says "yes." No doubt "Keef" 
would tell you more, only he does not like to talk about himself. 

"Keef" matriculated in the fall of 1914 in the Sub-Freshman 
Class, and has advanced year by year until now he is one of those dignified 
Seniors. It might be mentioned that "Keef" has strived all these years to be a 
chemist. And no doubt he will be a good one. because his co-worker is none other 
than "Doc" Etienne, and it means a whole lot to be able to work with "Doc" — a 
"whole lot," becatise no one else has ever been able to do it. 

"Keef" is a military genius — not like most others, because he advances from 
a Captain to a First Lieutenant. "Keef" also dances, sings, shoots "craps," plays 
olackjack, and will even play a saxa])hone if asked to do so. 

Aside from all joking, though, "Keef" is a fine fellow, and through his pleas- 
ant geniality and courtesy has acquired a large circle of friends.

EHOLD ! Here it is! (laze upon this specimen of mankind and tell 
us what you think of such an unsophisticated-looking youth ! 

"Captain Rob'' is known far and wide in the athletic world for his 
daring feats on the gridiron, his exceptional ability on the diamond, 
and his cleverness on the basket-ball floor. In his Junior year he was 
awarded the "Sylvester" gold medal, typifying the best all-around athlete in Mary- 
land. His many friends feel sure that if a best all-around athlete in the South 
were to be selected. Bob would be the man for the position this year. 

His classroom ability must not go unnoticed, as his answers in chemistry 
make Dr. McDonnell think twice. 

The genial personality and handsome figure of this young man have made 
him one of the leading characters on the campus. He is right at home in the social 
circles of College Park, Washington and Riverdale. His ability on the ballroom 
floor is comparable to his performances on the gridiron. 

Best of luck to you in the future, Robert, is the wish of every member of the

and unassuming personage. "Dumps'' served a rathood in the days 
when a rat was a rat. which training started him on the right lines, 
and he became the greatest executive on the campus. Indeed, he has 
become such an authority of political science that the noted professor of that sub-

As a military man. "Dum])s'' is a fine clarinetist ( B flat or Z minus ) . For five 
long years he has been the main contention in Professor Strohm's life, and still 
he has learnt the art of making harmony out of discord. Speaking of music, the 
"Judge" is also quite some warbler, and. besides being an old stand-by in the Glee 
Club, he has organized a quartet which on several occasions has entertained the 
people of Maryland. 

After all is said and done, we have in "Dumps." for by this name we shall

for that and those he loves. No matter how hard or mean the job, he shoulders 
the burden cheerfully, and always has that irresistible, contagious smile for every- 
one he meets. For this he is loved by tveryone. es])ecially the fair sex. and we.

Ex-Gob McDonald, who claims Barton as his home, but whether it 
is a town or just a place on the map we can't tell. The first Rossbourg 
Dance of this budding youth was a decided success. We remember 
the occasion well and know several yotmg ladies who often think of 

that painftil experience. He has improved ( ?) wonderfully since then. 

The last two years of "Mac's'' life have been full of romance. She was one 
of the few American girls in a French town, and our hero was one of the many 
ardent wooers from Generals to Shavetails and from Sergeants to "Gobs." How 
he succeeded we don't know, but now when he is not dreaming of Hood College 
he is hounding the postmaster for mail from Frederick. 

In all seriousness, though, "Mac'' is every inch a good fellow, the kind Mary-

can hold nothing too good for him. Success to you, "ole top."

The Class of 1920 feels justly proud in having a full-fledged preacher 
among its members, and especially so in having an all-around fellow 
like "Andy" ^latzen. While Matzen was a New Yorker originally, we don't hold 
that against him now since he has become a thoroughgoing jMarylander and says 
he wouldn't live in any other place. He came to us during the summer of 1919 
and saw the opportunity to complete his collegiate education which had been inter- 
rupted in the grasp of realization some years back. We feel sure that his useful- 
ness to his fellow-men will be greatly enhanced by his training at State, and the 
Class of 1920 wishes him every success in the world.

"Speedy" began his collegiate career with the Class of 'i8. He was 
right on the job when Uncle Sam went into the World War, and tried 
to enlist in everything from the Iceland Artillery to the Horse Brigade of the Air 
Service, but was refused because his body was not in proportion to his brain. He 
was finally accepted as a pill roller in the Navy and succeeded in getting to France. 
It was here that he was delegated as a committee of one to give two stowaways a 
bath, since which "Speedy"' has been a changed man. (Secret — The stowaways 
were mademoiselles.) "Speedy" returned to us to graduate with the Class of 
'20, and is one of our landscape gardeners who promises a large future. Should 
he fail in this, his oratorical abilities would insure him a place in the front row. 
But Heaven grant that he be a successful landscape gardener !

the scalps of his victims extending over a territory of great vastness,

with brilliancy. His studies were not enough to keep the mind of such a genius 
occupied, so he began a conquest which was doomed to terminate in the court. 
He has to date been sued for breach of promise three times, and it is said that 
another case has been filed against him, to be tried in the March term. His ex- 
ceedingly good looks and his new method of jazzing have endeared him to the 
hearts of numerous fair dames as well as his College friends.- 

His rough-and-ready disposition and good nature, as well as his vast amount 
of accumulated knowledge, will make for him unlimited success in whatever he 
may undertake, and the Class of '20 wishes him the happy future that nothing but 
drunkenness can rob him of.

"Well. I don't care what you say ; / say it's a Delicious.'' 
"It may be delicious, but it's a Stayman." 

Let 'em rave. It's just "Brazz" Burnside and the pride of Hack- 
ensack, N. J., pictured above. Unlike most stinging insects from the 
"skeeteriferous State." this particular specimen gets stung once in a while in deter- 
mining varieties of apples, but more often is he disappointed in peaches. 

This Burbank II started his career as a rat in the upper story of Rossbourg 
Hall, which historic place still holds the appellation of Buzzards' Roost. A year 
of servitude as valet for several football stars gave him that capacity for work 
which has brought him through his Senior year victoriously. Pratt knows horti- 
culture, and some day folks will travel for miles to confer with Dr. Pratt. 

We would like to say something about his future, but — have you noticed that 
he brings only one girl to the dances ? Yes, but what has that to do with the 
future? Well, ask "Al." He knows. 

Wherever the quest of fortune and the paths of ambition luay lead him, we 
wish hiiu godspeed.

"There s safety in uiiiiibers. and I'm always safe." 

OU now gaze upon the countenance of no other than the omnipotent 
Rig'gs. This study of human nature is one of the most outstanding 
personalities of the great number the Class of '20 boasts of. 

He entered in the Sub-Freshman Class, and ever since has been 
defending the Black and Gold on the athletic field. Riggs has the dis- 
tinction of being the captain of the South Atlantic championship baseball team 
of '18. This year he was picked for All-South Atlantic end. 

"Todie" answered the bugle call and was commissioned at Plattsburg. Al- 
though he was never given the opportunity to serve overseas, he was a valuable 
man in training raw material. 

Another distinction to this already distinguished character is that he has 
caused more hearts to flutter and to flutter harder than any man in college. 

"Curley" says "Todie" has that natural aggressiveness that will insure success 
in whatever he undertakes, and we, his classmates, agree with our coach, and 
hope that the line of life will offer him no more resistance than the thin, permeable 
line of Hopkins. 

Hit the line, "Todie," the Class of '20 is with you !

" 'Carry on' until the heavens fall, hell's top turrets freeze." 

N the fall of 1916 the Registrar of the College lengthened one of the 
pages of his book, and the illustrious Mr. Ernest Charles Edward 
Ruppert, Jr., attached his signature thereto. 

During his first two years here not much was seen of Eddie, be- 
cause, being a day student, he was on the campus during class hours 
only. However, when the S. A. T. C. of 1918 brought the students of the college 
closer together by requiring them all to reside here, Eddie realized the numerous 
advantages of being a boarding student, and became one from that time on. Eddie 
immediately interested himself in college activities, and one glance at the list of 
honors listed above will give the reader a fair idea of his many attainments atid 
of the liberal education thus acquired. 

Ruppert is a hard worker. He is lavish with midnight oil, even though this 
oil might frequently be gasoline, consumed on the road from College to Wash- 
ington. But, to become serious once more, Eddie is not bad for an only child. 
The genius to suggest big things, the courage to attempt them, and the ability to 
accomplish them — this is an epitome of Eddie's characteristics as gleatied from his 
scholastic record. 

Now we have just one more secret to divulge. .\s Goldberg says, "They all 
fall sooner or later.'' Eddie is no exception. Like all representatives of his sex, 
he never tells much, but many Monday mornings find him returning from his 
week-end in the city very much "Joed."

ANDY" or "SANDOW," normal specimen of the genus homo, dis- 
tant relative of the famous strong man, disciple of Mendel, and the 

: last of the Sub-Freshman Class of 1913, in spite of many handicaps, 
has heroically overcome all obstacles and reaped the harvest of a 
liberal education. 

Inspired by patriotic motives, and not influenced by the glamor of European 
scenery and life, he served under the Adjutant-General in the A. E. F. for a 
period of over eighteen months. He was rewarded for his conscientious applica- 
tion by being assigned to the President's office in Paris, for duty with Admiral 
Grayson, with whom he returned to the United States. In spite of the fact that 
he is a teetotaler, the experiences that he has had have had a broadening influence 
upon him. 

The best wishes of the Class of '20 go with you, Sando.

ROM all otitward appearance.s this looks like a healthy, happy, care- 
free young man. Yet from the number of times his heart has been 
wrecked by relentless young vampires, it would be no wonder if his 
hair were white and his face wrinkled with sorrow. There was a 
time when Tubby openly boasted that he was not interested in girls 
and did not care a thing about them. For some unknown reason this did not seem 
to distress the ladies very much. But the great god Mars came to the resctie, and 
when Tubby got on an officer's uniform the girls soon discovered him, and at the 
same time Tubby discovered the girls. Since then he has had no peace. 

Tubby possesses that rare gift, a perfect sense of humor, and laughs just as 
heartily at a joke on himself as at one on the other fellow. Ttibby is a deep 
thinker and has a literary inclination. Some day school children will be studying 
his works.

"Success is achieved only through trying." 

5— rf H E Army took him from the wilds of West Virginia, and then, want- 
ing to see the world, he came to Maryland State in January, 1919. 
Few of us came to know him until his work in classes showed him 
leading all. 

The first candidate for the Stock Judging Team to show "stufi"'' 
was "Baldy," and he soon showed us how to judge Holsteins. In dairy products 
he also knows a few things worth telling. 

A most fortunate voting man indeed, for he has a charming wife and daugh- 
ter. We may "kid" him for his luck, but he carries a self-satisfied smile that 
makes many envious. 

During his short time here he has been unaniiuously elected to the presidency 
of the Rolling Order of Gallopin Dominoes, our local Chapter of the African 
Golf Club. 

All the men who know Snarr realize that he is a regular fellow, and we of 
the Class of '20 know he will do great things. We all wish you luck.

' 'Tis better to eat than to hunger, 
'Tis better to love than to slumber." 



AIN'T nobody else but ye goode auld Wilbur of S. A. T. C. fame that 
ye now gaze upon. Don't be alarmed, for even though he has a wild 
look in his eyes, he won't bite, for he is only a simple country lad, 
from the land of Yama Yama, where every man's a king and every 
woman's a queen. 

As a social man he's potent. He has the distinction and honor of having more 
of the bashful debutantes of this season after him than any other man on the hill. 
Truly, "Little Oliba" is a bear with the women. Why, he eats with them, talks with 
them, weeps with them, and he's been known to even hold hands with them. 

Aside from being a lOO per cent, student and an ardent lover, he has attained 
the honor of having risen from the ranks. He is now Captain of Company "A," 
draws $12 a month, and expends that, as well as about $60 of Dad's, in quest of 
New Angels of Mercy to piece together his ribs, which were broken because of an 
overworked heart. 

We, his classmates, can see nothing for him but a successful future as the 
Mayor of Salt Lake Citv, Utah.

"Many arc cold, but fczv arc fro::en." 

O, gentle reader, your surmise is incorrect. The Reverend Mr. Ternent 
is not a member of the Tribe of Moses. How do we know ? Why, he 
says so himself. Yes, indeed, he is French. Don't he look it ? 

Aside from the truth, Lonaconing boasts of no greater repre- 
sentative than the renowned "Mountain Goat," Sampson S. Ternent. 
Possibly no one has ever seen a greater exponent of the "Shimmy" than said 

Do we not remember that day in the fall of 1914 when a young, timid, meek, 
mild, unobtrusive little fellow came staggering up the paths of M. A. C. and "flat- 
footed" it up the hill to Calvert Hall ? 

At the end of his Junior year "Pud" volunteered his services to Uncle Sam 
and was gladly accepted. After his discharge from the service he returned to 
M. S. C. to complete his course in chemistry. We look for great things from 
"Pud" in the scientific world after graduation, especially along the lines of physi- 
ological and agricultural chemistry. 

There are many things that "Pud" has to contend with during his Senior year 
which seem to worry the poor fellow considerably. First, during the summer of 
1919 "he was disappointed in love." Now he holds classes every Tuesday and 
Friday nights discussing plans for the Hachelors' Club and also rendering good 
advice to the "Rats" regarding love affairs. Secondly, he has taken it upon him- 
self to exercise paternal authority over his roommates, especially "Child" Edel, 
the little 200-pound six-foot two-inch boy. Thirdly, "Pud" lies awake nights try- 
ing to solve the problein. What is the position of a Senior? 

Everyone knows "Pud" is a fine fellow, and through his geniality, big-heart- 
edness and courtesy has acquired a large circle of friends. Here's wishing him 
the best of everything on his life's journey from the Class of '20.

lAT LUX," and behold there was light. Yea, and the source 
of this light was a regenerated institution. Some saw the first 
glimmer of this light and came early to bask in its rays. Unlike 
the dinosaur and the icthyosaurus, these animals are still with 
us. They are "Aust" Diggs, "Zeek" Ezekiel, "Joe" Frere, 
"Flat-foot" Gray, "Pap" Knode, "Bob" Knode, "Dumps" Lang- 
rall and "Toady" Riggs. 

Then came the beginning of the greatest era in Maryland's 
history. A revolution took place m her State college. Maryland Agricultural 
College died to give existence to newer, better and greater Maryland State Col- 
lege. The transition was gradual but certain, and in the midst of this change the 
Class of 1920 entered. 

We all like to look back on those days when we "toted" laundry bags, sang 
paragraphs from "The Fungus Diseases of Plants" to the tune of "My Country, 
'Tis of Thee," all the innumerable tasks of "Rats." As "Frank" Day says, "By 
not having Rat rules, these Freshmen of today don't know what a good time 
they're missing." 

Then followed a summer when many unenlightened Marylanders had a 
chance to see what extraordinary developments result from a year of college life. 
When the next fall came we were, for a number of reasons, eager to return to 
our Alma Plater. We had assimilated that strange, indefinite thing called college 
spirit; we had already appreciated the value of the little "higher education" that 
we had received, and we wanted more ; but chiefly did we want to return to see 
that the fresh crop of Rats would be "trained up in the way they should go." The 
Class of 1920 was the last class to codify a set of Rat rules and to enforce them for 
an entire year. Our rules were reasonable and very liberal, but they were rigidly, 
unflinchingly enforced. Ask any 1921 man what he thought of "Jawn" Sterling 
and his fellow Fu Flux Fanners. 

In selecting the colors for Rat insignia the Class of '20 m;ide manifest its 
artistic taste. One of the local belles stopped the coy, bashful, blushing, biting 
of her delicate lower lip long enough to say, "Oh, I simply think those new boys 
^o fun-nv. Um-hum, and aren't those little white and gre-en caps de-arah ?" 


■artjf gSfetorg of tl|e Qllaaa of 19211 

Every Rat that year was a fellow that any mother (who wanted to raise a 
preacher model i860) might be proud of. In interclass contests those Rats were 
wiped off their feet and the banner of 1920 flew all year. 

It may be of historical interest to note that "Dumps" Langrall during this 
year organized the Canners' Club. The canners wanted to have a picture and a 
write-up in the Reveille, but the cost per capita was too great. 

During our Sophomore vacation many of our class heeded the call of the 
country, and when we assembled on the campus that fall it was to enlist in the 
S. A. T. C. This was the year of the influenza epidemic, one of whose victims 
was a jovial, prepossessing classmate of ours — "Fats" Baurman. 

In January, 1919, Maryland State began to settle down to normal conditions. 
The war had reduced the membership of our class to an embarrassingly small 
number. We had the responsibility of publishing the 1919 Reveille and of con- 
ducting the Prom. The former task was made much easier by the ])oetic genius 
of "Eddie" Ruppert. Much help on the latter undertaking was given by Ady and 
Bissel, who had recently learnt to dance. And some Prom it wa.s — oh, boys ! 
Many cases date back to that gay evening. 

During our Senior year' Davidson, Day, Elliott, Eppley, Merrill, Sando 
and Turnett of the Class of 1918 joined our class. Axt, Burnside, Clendaniel, 
Conyngton, Downing, Hicks, Perkins, Pratt, Sewell and Starr of the Class of 
1919 also joined our ranks. The vicissitudes of war prevented these men from 
graduating with their classes. 

There are certain duties which must be performed by Seniors. "Frank" Day 
ably presided over the Student Assembly, and the executive chairs in all of the 
organizations were held by men of the Class of 1920. 

"Dutch" Axt, "Hap" Carroll II. "Pete" Elliot and "Wop" Hicks are the 
lacrosse stars of the class. "Toady" Riggs, "Pap" Knode and "Bob" Knode have 
been the backbone of the Varsity baseball team for the last four years. "Swede" 
Eppley and "Bob" Knode were the strong points of the football team, which took 
the State championship. "Toady" Riggs made the All-South Atlantic eleven. 

While speaking of athletics we might as well consider some of the lesser 
games. The star parlor athletics of the class are "Brazz" Burnside and "Eddie" 
Ruppert. "Speedy" Merrill is the leading aesthetic boxer of Maryland. "Julius" 
Conyngton holds the South Atlantic championship for masculine vampire. 

The Class of 1920 is the first class to enter Maryland State College. Miss 
Elizabeth Hook is the first co-ed to complete a four-year course at this institution. 
It is due to her courage and rare personality that Maryland State is co-educational. 
Yes, we have done much to be proud of during our four years here, but we must 
realize that the greatest and best things that have come to us are due to the efllorts 
of President Woods and to the work of the capable faculty with which he has sur- 
rounded himself. 

Maryland State, we are leaving you now. Whatever success we may have in 
the future will be due to your trainmg; whatever failures, due to ourselves. Old 
Alma Mater, our hearts are full of love and gratitude to you, and we leave believ- 
ing that though your past has been great, it shall be eclipsed by your future.

ELL, here is my picture in the 
Reveille, and I suppose that a 
few words are necessary to de- 
fend its position. I well remember 
that fall day in 1917 when I entered 
"Old State," too scared for words. 
But biology I loved, and later was 
bound to learn. It was a "scarey" 
proposition, coming to a college as un- 
used to co-eds, such as this college 
was then. No, the "Roofs" didn't yell

appointment. I am now in the School 
of Liberal Arts pursuing a pre-law 
course. I was influenced in coming to 
this particular college for two reasons : 
First, I hail from a "Maryland State 
town," and secondly, I have a brother 
who is a graduate of the institution. I 
shall never regret the step.

HEN eight years old my idea was 
that some day I should become 
some great man, such as Presi- 
dent of the U. S., a street-car conduc- 
tor or a bellhop. The closest resem- 
blance to any of my would-be profes- 
sions I found across the street. He 
was a "big boy" who used to come 
from a place called M. A. C. Natu- 
rally he was a hero in our community, 
and I can remember following him 
around the street doing "Right shoul- 
der arms !'' with an American flag. 
His pretty gray uniform struck my 
eye, and right then I decided M. A. C. 
would be my goal. Here I am, an al- 
most graduated "Liberal Artist," with 
as great a love for his College as a 
man could have.

^llEARD a great deal about M. S. 
^~ C, and on the ist of October, 
~^ 1917, I started for College Park. 
When I saw the large smokestack I 
rang the bell and got off at the station. 
I walked up the hill to the office and 
there registered. I wa.s assigned to a 
room in Calvert Hall. It was here 
that I received the knowledge of the 
customs and traditions of the College.

YISUPPOSE I missed a lot in not 
^~ coming to State until my junior 
^^year, but "better late than never." 
I couldn't let Billy Bland be the only 
girl in the Class of 1920. I graduated 
in the home economics course at State 
Normal School last year, and in the 
summer took a position of dietition in 
a farmerette camp. It was there that 
I acquired the nickname of "Cream 
Sauce Eddie." Here I am just 
"Bobby." Oh, yes, I like State fine, 
but a little less chemistry and a little 
more tennis would make it ideal.

j^ H ERE were five reasons why I 
^!gg came to Maryland State. It was 
close to Baltimore, had a good 
farming course, was not a co-ed 
school, had a reputation in athletics, 
and a bunch of good fellows. I live in 
Washington now, so the "close to 
Baltimore" part proved all wrong. In- 
stead of taking farming I took engi- 
neering. The school is now co-ed, and 
everyone knows my dislike of women. 
But the good re])utation of the school 
in athletics has been increased tenfold, 
and there is not a better bunch of fel-

explored. Then someone mentioned

PON graduating from the Eastern

State College because it offered 
the most truly typical Maryland farm-

old State was reputed to have a staff 
of instructors that was par-excellence. 
Nowhere else on the Eastern coast 
could I find a school that would be ca- 
pable of teaching agriculture which 
could be generally applied in my own 
home community as at Maryland 
State, and each succeeding year has 
strengthened my belief.

But be a good sport and don't worry.

^uitior "MistortJ 

igRRIVING at Maryland State in the fall of 1917, we started on our 
four-year journey. We were the freshest of the fresh. In a few 
days the freshness began to rapidly disappear as the Sophs took 
us in hand to "whip" us into shape as college men. A few days 
later we called a meeting, drew up a constitution and elected a 
president. Our selection was Willis R. Brundage (Pigeon). He 
was an ideal man for the job, and well did he pilot the class through 
the year, resigning in the spring to enter the service of Uncle Sam. 
Our Freshman Class was one long to be remembered by us. 
It was the last Freshman Class under the old regime of "Rat"' rule and discipline 
committee, and as a class we were unsurpassable. For the Varsity Football Team 
we furnished Snyder and Stubbs ; for baseball, Holder, Eiseman, Snyder, Smith 
and Groton ; for basket-ball, Eiseman and Stone. In oratory. Cole won a place 
among not only the highest in M. S. C, but among all the colleges in the State. 

The following spring we elected new officers for the next year. Cole was 
chosen president, and only after his term had expired did the class realize the full 
value of his leadership. "Billie" Bland, our one co-ed and friend of all, was 
elected treasurer. When we left in the spring of 1918, no one could foresee the 
changes that eventually took place. 

As we drifted back in the fall of 1918 we found M. S. C. a military camp in 
every sense of the word. Uncle Sam had taken over the college and installed the 
organization of the S. A. T. C. Throwing aside all thought of study, we started 
in with a vim as only '21 can. Many of our classmates were the acting non-coms, 
of the organization, and still others had been commissioned as officers and were 
either "over there" or in the U. S. A. acting as instructors. This period was of 
short duration, however, as the war ended in a few weeks and the college once 
more became an institution of learning. 

When we came back on January 6, 1919, to begin the second term we were 
beginning the greatest year a class ever went through in the annals of the College. 
There were 125 "Rats," and our class numbered ^y, but well had we been taught 
and better had we learned. Two days later the "Rats" had decided that there was 
a place on the earth they did not own, and, indeed, in a few more days they began 
to act almost human and display some signs of intelligence. We gave them the 
benefit of our learning and experience willingly and gladly, but our instruction 
lasted only about two weeks. 

It was at this time that our class made the greatest sacrifice possible for a 
Sophomore class, but we did it unflincliingly and luihesitatingly, displaying the 
real mettle of the Class of '21. We voluntarily abolished "Rat rules'' and pledged 
our undivided support to Student Government. This was the greatest step for- 
ward ever taken by any class in the history of the College. 

Again did our class display its athletic stars. On that ever-famous S. A. T. C. 
Championship Football Squad were Snyder, ^Manning, Stubbs, Gardner, Stone 

One Hundred and Thirty 






and Groton. On the South Atlantic Championship Baseball Team we boasted of 
Eiseman, Snyder, Groton, Holder, and Sullivan (assistant manager). In basket- 
ball were Stonestreet, Eiseman, Stone, Smith and Wilhelm. On the track were 
Wilhelm, Twilley and Peddicord. On the tennis team were Slanker, Haig and 
Stone — three-fourths of the team. 

Not only in athletics and Student Government was our class interested, how- 
ever. There were members in societies, fraternities, county and city clubs, on 
the Reveille Board, in the Grange, and every other organization in the campus. 
In the battalion many of the Class of '21 were instructors. 

Later in the year, with the usual foresight, we held our election of class 
officers and the Reveille Board. Who will not say that '21 did her share and 
more as Sophs ? 

When we returned as Juniors this year we had so much ahead of us that the 
task seemed impossible, but a glance at our former achievements gave us courage, 
and we have already made great progress in the year's work. "Nat" Goodwin, 
our president, left us at the end of the first term, and Eiseman was elected to 
succeed him. 

The great feature of our Junior year was our Junior Prom., of which we are 
justly proud. It was a magnificent success and a worthy recognition of the senior- 
ity due to Class of '20 — our revered Seniors. 

Along with this unsurpassed affair, which again shows the true worth, ability 
and talent among the martyrs of '21, came the publication of this Reveille, 
which, according to all indications and reports, is to be not only the best Reveille 
ever published, but an annual equal to any in the country. This is something to 
be proud of, and we are greatly indebted to our Editor-in-Chief, "King" Cole, who 
is entirely responsible for its many attractive, "catchy" and novel ideas. We were 
wise in electing such a man for the job. 

We cannot close this history and at the time feel satisfied, without summing 
up our three years' work by saying that the present Junior Class — the Class of 
■'21 — has been truly a wide-awake and active group, has always worked toward the 
interest of the College and its fellow-classes, and by so doing has been the greatest 
class State has ever possessed. We conscienciously say this : We abolished "Rat" 
rules and promiscuous hazing, consequently starting the idea of our present Stu- 
dent Government ; we extended a Junior Prom to the Seniors unexcelled by any 
such former afifair ; we published a Reveille twice as large and three times as 
elaborate and complete as any edited before, and we will leave College owing no 
debts for someone else to pay. We do not say this boastfully or to discredit any 
other classes, but we say it because we are proud of our record and want to give 
due recognition and credit to our leaders who have been instrumental in achieving 
these heights. 

We trust next year, our Senior year, we will be able as Seniors to do more 
than ever for our fellow-classes, our Faculty, our College and our Alumni, to 
whom we dedicated our Reveille to show our appreciation, respect and esteem.

RIGHT prospects for the coming Soph year accompanied 
the Class of '22 when they re-entered the portals of 
M. S. C. after a summer variously spent. All our ex- 
pectations have heen fulfilled, as the past year has been 
even more exciting than we anticipated. When we left 
College last spring we had behaved and managed our- 
selves as no other Freshman Class had ever done before. 
Not only had we starred in the social and athletic worlds, 
but this broad-minded Class of '22 had voluntarily taken upon itself, when the 
Class of '21 abolished Rat rules, to make and to keep a set of rules which were in 
line with the best traditions of the College. 

On returning to College this fall we decided to let the Freshmen alone for a 
while and see if they could not work oul their own salvation without the necessity 
of Sophomore supervision and sec their way clear to adopting and keeping rules 
similar to those that we had adopted. This was a very pretty dream, but it did 
not work out. After leaving the Freshmen alone for nearly six months we con- 
cluded that they would have to be taken in hand. A committee was appointed 
to see to the keeping of the Freshman Code, and after that the blue and yellow 
caps were worn. Freshmen perambulated only on the campus paths, and in gen- 
eral behaved as well-conducted Freshmen should. The large number of co-eds in 
the Freshman Class led to quite an animated discussion as to whether they 
should be forced to go becapped and to keep the other rules. For a while they 
were left alone, but then the members of the Sophomore Class resolved that all 
Freshmen were expected to obey these rules, and if these "rabbits" were not 
Freshmen, what were they? So thenceforth the co-eds obeyed the code with the 
rest of their class. 

So much for our very heavy duties as caretakers for the Freshmen. But we 
did not spend all our time on them. In the society world our class kept up with the 
times. Right in line with our reputation of last year the Sophomores gave a 
dance, one of the most popular of a year of many and popular dances. This was 
no common dance by any means, and we had for an orchestra a band that played 
such music as is usually heard only at Junior Proms. Our guests, the upper 
classmen, turned out in great numbers, and all declared it an extremely enjoyable 

The Class of '22, as usual, contributed many men to the athletic field. Sally 
Bosley and Zeke Bailey were our "M"' men in football, while Alike Ready, Humpty 
Gilbert, Bill Barrall, Gus Hines, Charlie Molster and Johnny Moran did their 
share in bringing home the State championship. The good right arm of Vic Keene 
IS the standby of our baseball team, and Bailey is a worthy catcher for such a 
man. The most important part of the baseball team, the battery, is thus furnished 
by our class. Humpty Gilbert and Bill Barrall are our shining lights in basket-ball. 

One Hundred and Thirt\i-six 




Drill may not rightly be called athletics, but there, too, our class has proved 
its worth by its men and their deeds. Ten Sophomores held ranks beginning at 
corporals and going up. And how splendidly they kept order in the ranks and 
disciplined the raw recruits ! 

Our class is not lacking in other college activities. Otto Reinmuth was in the 
intersociety debate. In the plays of the Dramatic Club, on the staff of the 
"Review."' among Glee Club members — everywhere — will be found enrolled mem- 
bers of '22. In fact, in every phase of college life we are well represented. How- 
ever, in spite of our numerous activities, our class has found time to study, and 
feels that its members are old enough and earnest enough to get all out of studies 
that it is possible to get. 

We entered College under very unusual circumstances, coming as we did in 
a time of war, and joining straight from the S. A. T. C. We were the largest 
Freshman Class that had ever been matriculated at State, and but few men have 
left in this our Sophomore year. Our class has, moreover, been re-enforced by 
the addition of new men who had left college on account of the war. To these 
men '22 extends a hearty welcome and assures them that we are very glad to have 
them in our class, and hope that they will stay by us to the hard and bitter end — 

The Sophomore year is the last play year of the College course. Before us 
stretches out our Junior year with all its responsibilities and hard work. The 
Prom, looms up on one side and the Reveille on the other. However, the Class 
of '22 feels that it will be well able to take over some of the responsibilities of 
man and womanhood — nay, even feels a fierce pleasure in doing so. 

And yet in looking back we feel that it would have been impossible to have 
spent a happier year of work and play than we spent while in our Sophomore year. 
But we have left childhood behind us, and with maturing minds we will carry 
with us into the new Junior Class the well-known standards and ambitions of that 
famous class — nineteen twenty-two.

l^tslory Class of 192 

RANKLY, 148 new members suddenly landing at Maryland 
State College last fall surely must have caused a sensation, if not 
a difficult problem. How to assimilate so large a class was the 
question. "Rai rules" had been abolished last year, and it 
seemed that thty would not return. In compliance with the 
tradition — to hold a Freshman entertainment for the benefit of 
the student body, faculty and the i)ublic — as established subse- 
quent to the abolishment of "Rat rules" during the year 1918-19, the Freshmen 
readily took up the idea. The entertainment, which proved to be a great success, 
was something in the nature of a burlesque on hazing. The whole class wor- 
.=hipped at the throne of "St. Fag and Fan," then took part in many "stunts." 
Who does not remember the scene from "Snipe Hunting," given entirely by the 
co-eds, or their song entitled "Style All the While" ? Yes. co-education has begun 
in real earnest. There are thirteen girls in the Freshman Class, and so far they 
have proved far from unlucky. 

Even though "Rat rules" had suffered a sorrowful death, the presence of its 
substitute, the Freshman code, was soon in evidence— the paths of the campus 
were brilliantly decorated by the orange and blue Freshmen caps. 

The class is a loyal supporter of all of the organizations on the campus. The 
Freshmen are in for everything. We were well represented on the All-Maryland 
Footliall Team, and both our Freshman football and baseball teams have or are 
making creditable showings. Many of our members are in the Clee Club, and the 
members of the Maryland State Trio are Freshmen. 

The Class Dance was even a bigger success than we had hoped for. In spite 
of the "stormy" weather, members, upper-classmen and friends trooped into the 
hall and danced to their hearts' content beneath the garlands of maroon and white 
and the beautiful new class banner, which had not been injured in the "storm." 

And so we have stood together, eaten together, worked together, played 
together, and together we will doff our "Rat caps" and take up the duties of 
worthy Sophomores.

Hatcher H. Ankers 
Sterling, Virginia 


UR friend Ankers, commonly known "'Ig- 
don," hails from Sterling, Loudoun county, 
Va., which he claims is God's own country, 
hut we have our doubts. He has been our Vice- 
President and Treasurer, successively, and is 
President of the Virginia Club. Mr. Ankers ex- 
pects to go into the dairying game, for which \v: 
is exceptionally well qualified, and we all join in 
wishing him best of luck with his Guernseys. 



Rox.vLD T. Burt 
Westover, Maryland 


HIS guy is the proud possessor of something 
that no one else in the class can boast of. Do 
not jump at conclusions, for it is only an 

accent that he, Ronald T. Burt, smuggled past 
the custom officials at Ellis Island while returning 
from a ten-year sojourn within the rock-bound 
coasts of England. Burt is known and liked by 
everyone, from the quadruped. Sallie, the College 
mascot, to the most dignified Senior, and through 
the higher circles of professors. However, we 
are drinking to his future health and prosperity. 

L.awrence E. C.xuffman 
Merchantville, New Jersey 


^p Staten Island, N. Y. Later he transferred 
his domicile to the cranberry bogs of New 
Jersey. "Wop'' was a lover of nature and has 
traveled over the greater part of the surrounding 
States on a bicycle. The call of agriculture 
proved too strong for him, so he entered M. S. C. 
in the fall of 1916. In the spring of '17 he en- 
listed in the aviation corps and, after a year's 
service in France, was mustered out as a First 
Lieutenant. The Class of '20 is very fortunate in 
having him among its members. "Wop" is a 
member of the Nu Sigma Omicron Fraternity. 
He says that he is a farmer, not married and has 
no children. So, here's luck in abundance !

George Blake Chapman 
Woodstock. \'irginia 


EORGE B. CHAPMAN, better known as 
"Shorty,'' entered M. S. C. in the fall of 
1918. He hails from Woodstock, in the 
Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, whose equal, he 
declares, is not to be found anywhere. His chief 
occupation is burning midnight oil. "Shorty's"' 
greatest ambition is to be the most scientific 
farmer in the valley and to live without working. 
We wish him every success in his future career. 

Charles Clarence Crippen 

Chester, Pennsylvania 


T was in the fall of '18 that "Crip'' perambu- 
lated up the path to M. S. C. and became a 
member of the S. A. T. C. "Crip" must 
have been well pleased with his short sojourn in 
the S. A. T. C for he returned to take up a two- 
year course when the College went back to a pre- 
war basis. As a waiter "Crip"' can't be beat, and 
as a lady killer — don't say a word. He's there all 
right! H his professional career is as successful 
as his College career, he will surely leave behind 
him "footprints on the sands of time." He is a 
member of the Nu Sigma Omricon Fraternity. 

Arthur P. Dows 
Riverside, Maryland 


RTIIUR P. DOWS, who hails from God's 
[r^jzj i cciuntrv — Charles county — entered ]\I. S. C. 


m It 

His greatest ambition is to go back 

to Charles county to raise the nasty weed (tol)ac- 
co). "A. P.'s" chief weakness is the ladies, and 
when not in class is usually found waylaying 
some co-ed in the corridors. Mr. Dows has been 
a faithful and good classmate, so the whole class 
join in wishing him a very prosperous future.

Frank Langhorne Evans 

Huntington, West Virginia 



L. EVANS, lately of the U. S. Army, but 
now of Charleston, W. Va., made his debut 
at M. S. C. on January 6, 1919. Though 
(juiet and reserved, he soon became a favorite of 
his classmates. He has served as class Treas- 
urer and Vice-President, successively. Although 
Mr. Evans had little previous farm experience, 
he soon became well versed in the intricacies of 
agriculture. More than once his questions have 
caused Professor Gamble to say, "Well, now, Mr. 
Evans, you just think over that." Though he 
stumped Professor Gamble, here's luck to him. 



Edwin F. Froleich 

Crisfield, Maryland 


HIS is the Dutchman. Yes, he is intelligent, 
for at the age of 12 he transferred allegiance 
from Lonaconing, on the Western Shore, to 
Cristield, on the Eastern Shore. "Dutch" entered 
M. S. C. in the fall of 1917-18, in the animal hus- 
bandry course. The following year he went in 
the army as a pill-roller. He returned to M. S. 
C. in tht fall of 1919-20, bringing back a colorful 
assortment of cuss words — and the sergeant's 
whistle. H that whistle doesn't cause the sad and 
early death of "Dutch," he is assured of a real 
success in life, accompanied by the best wishes 
and the good-will of all his fellow-students. 

William Presstman Fusselbaugh 
Baltimore, Maryland 




ILLIAM P. FUSSELBAUGH reports that, 
to the best of his knowledge, he first saw the 
liglit of day on January 22, 1898, at Pikes- 
ville, Baltimore county, Md. Later, Riderwood 
was honored by his presence, and now Baltimore 
is the more renowned because of his citizenship. 
He has been President of the class both years. 
He is a member of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity, 
Student Grange and Executive Committee. 
"Fuzzy" is so magnanimous that he hasn't any 
specialty, but "we are with him till h freezes

C'K" made his "debut" at Maryland State 
(luring the S. A. T. C, and he liked it so 
well that he stuck with us. Under the guid- 
ance of "Charlie'' Paine and "Eddie" Ruppert, 
"Dick" has developed into a rare ( ?) student. 
He has a fond passion for the "Arcade" and 
"I'enn Gardens." Seriously, though, we are cer- 
tain that "T- Richard" will make his mark in this 
cruel world. Dick is a member of the Nu Sigma 
Oniricnn iM-atcrnitv. 

W. B. James 
Hancock, Maryland 



IMMIE" JAMES, as he was known to his 
friends and classmates, entered M. S. C. in 
January, 1919, to take the two-year agricul- 
liual course and specialize in pomology. "Jini- 
niic" was a good student and a hard worker, like- 
wise a good fellow, and although of a rather quiet 
and retiring disposition and inclined to "mind his 
own business," he was liked by all who came to 
know him. 

C. L. Jarrei.l, Jr. 
Greensboro, Maryland 



HAS. L. JARRELL, alias "Alfalfa," "blew 
in" on us in January, 1919, to learn the sci- 
entific methods of farming, so he could go 
l)ack to the Eastern Sho', from whence he hailed, 
and teach the natives the real art of farming. 
"Alfalfa" was of a likable disposition and made 
many friends while at M. S. C, especially among 
the "contrary" sex. His remarks often brought 
forth laughter in class. Who. in fact, will not re- 
member the one in "Doc" Meade's class about 
Cleopatra ?

Allyn H. Myers 
Winchester, Virginia 


\C," who hails from Winchester. Va., in the 
heart of the Shenandoah \'alley, entered

AI. A. C. m 

and Historian of his class successively. His chief 
pastime is "chewing the rag,'' and as for convinc- 
ing him against his opinion, "it can't be did.'' Our 
friend Myers has the ambition to become the 
most successful fruit grower in the Shenandoah 
Valley, and he has the best wishes of the class in 
his future career. 

Charles D. Ridout 
Annapolis, Maryland 


r^ENTLE READERS, when you look upon 
L^^ this "mug" you behold our beloved friend 
™" "Chief" Ridout. He hails from Anne Arun- 
del, and his highest ambition is to go back to show 
the old county how to produce pure milk and 
fresh eggs with the least expense and labor. 
Whether he takes up his abode in Anne Arundel, 
or in the heathen shores of Africa, or on the 
vine-clad rocks of Loracella, he has the best 
wishes of his class.

g T the start our classes consisted of twenty-six members — twenty in 
the Agricviltiiral Course and six in the Engineering Course. A few 
of this number have left College and several have changed to other 
courses, all of whom are listed below as ex-members. They all 
have our best wishes for success. 

On the other hand, we have had several additions to our class 
in Agriculture, namely, Messrs. Cauffman and Froelich, who re- 
turned from the service to complete their courses, and Mr. Dono- 
van, who returned for the same purpose after a year's absence. 

We much regretted the departure, during January of this year, of "Jimmie" 
Tames, one of our classmates, who left school to accept the management of a large 
commercial orchard near his home, Hancock, Maryland. We extend him our 
best wishes for success. 

We have acquired a great deal of valuable information while at Maryland 
State, which has certainly better equipped us for our future tasks and better pre- 
nared us to render real service to our fellow-men, and it is with no little regret. 
State, that we bid you farewell. We will always be with you in spirit, and you 
have our best wishes for continued growth in greatness and prosperity.

PPLICANTS for admission to the College must be at least sixteen 
years of age. Women are admitted to all courses and under the 
same conditions as men. Students may be admitted at any time, 
but should enter at the beginning of one of the three terms. 

Students may be admitted by examination, or by certificate 
from an accredited high school or preparatory school, or by trans- 
fer from another college. 

In general, the requirements for admission to the Freshman 
Class are the same as those prescribed for graduation by the ap- 
proved high schools of Maryland. An applicant must ofifer for admission at least 
15 units of credit by examination, or by a certificate from an approved high school 
or its equivalent. A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary 
school and constitutes approximately a quarter of a full year's work. It presup- 
poses a school year of 36 to 40 weeks, recitation periods of from 40 to 60 min- 
utes, and for each study four or five class exercises a week. Two laboratory 
periods in any science or vocational study are considered as equivalent to one class 

Of the fifteen units presented, seven are specifically designated — eight for the 
School of Engineering, and eight may be elected from any subject that the high 
school offers toward graduation. A deficiency of one unit is approved, but the 
student cannot become a candidate for a degree until all entrance requirements are 

Students are admitted without examination if they can present certificates 
showing that they have completed the necessary entrance subjects. The certificates 
presented by the candidates must be officially certified by the principals of the 
schools attended, and must state in detail the work completed. Blank certificates 
conveniently arranged for the desired data will be sent upon application. 

Candidates not admitted by certificates will be required to take written exam- 
mations on the entrance subjects. These examinations are ofifered in June and 
September. Exact dates will be sent upon request.

IGRICULTURE is outstanding as one of the leading industries of the 
world. It is so linked with other industries that they are all depend- 
ent upon it. When agriculture stops, all other works of the world 
must stop. It has been the aim of the School of Agriculture to modify 
its curricula from time to tmie to keep pace with the growth of the 
industry. The faculty has tried to equip the students who go out from this de- 
partment with tools that will enable them to fight the battle of life successfully, 
and its members desire to take this opportunity to ofifer their sincere best wishes 
for those who leave this year and for those who have preceded them. 

The teaching of a rational, jjractical system of farming is the primary aim of 
the School of Agriculture. The permanent prosperity of rural citizens is in direct 
proportion to the producing capacity of the land. The most successful farmer is 
the one who can produce a maximum quantity per acre of the best quality of 
agricultural products at a minimum cost and dispose of them in the markets to the 
best advantage. The modern farmer must know the kinds of plants to grow and 
how to improve them ; how to maintain orchards, gardens, and attractive sur- 
roundings ; something of the soil, its cultivation and conservation of fertility ; 
how to combat ]5lant diseases and insect pests ; the selection, breeding and feeding 
of livestock ; the marketing of farm products ; modern farm buildings, farm equip- 
ment and conveniences of the home; and finally, how to be leaders and promote 
good citizenship in rural life. 

The curricula are planned to give the student a general knowledge of all 
phases of agriculture and related sciences, but at the same time afford an oppor- 
tunity to specialize along the lines in which he is particularly interested. The plan 
provides for those who wish to take up professions, such as teaching, research, 
county agent work, as well as farming.

OTHING is more valuable to men taking technical training than an 
association in which they can "rub elbows" with each other and gain 
new ideas and new inspiration by contact with kindred spirits. Stu- 
dents in the Agricultiiral courses follow lines of study that diverge 
more and more as they near graduation, and nothing is better for men 
specializing in Agronomy, Horticulture or Animal Husbandry than to know the 
peculiar bias of the students in each particular course. An association in which 
these students can exchange ideas and get each other's viewpoint is a large factor 
in giving broadness of mind and preventing a narrow, provincial attitude. 

When men interested in the same things are organized they can secure notable 
speakers who can give much valuable information to their hearers. The proximity 
of Maryland State to Washington makes it easy for the Agricultural Society to 
have trained men at its meetings whenever the members desire. This opportunity 
is frequently made use of, and the agricultural student in this way gets facts that 
are never gained in class. 

Man is a social animal, and must have intercourse with his fellows. The 
Agricultural Society fills an important role in furnishing relaxation and amuse- 
ment to the Agricultural students. The programs not only are interesting and 
amusing, but after the formal meetings are concluded the rest of the evenings are 
passed in social enjoyment and good-fellowship. This not only helps to make the 
students happy and contented, but is an important element in building up College 
spirit. The place of the Agricultural Society in the lives of the students in the 
School of Agriculture is a high one.

NGINEERING is an ancient profession, but at no time in its history 
has it played so prominent a part in the world's activities as at the 
present day. The profession of Engineering is so broad in scope as 
to enter to a greater or less extent into practically every field of 
human endeavor, and as modern engineering is so closely related to 
economic progress, it is no exaggeration to state that the prosperity, and even the 
industrial existence, of this country is very largely dependent upon the Engineer- 
ing profession. 

The achievements of Engineering in the fields of transportation, of electric 
transmission and of power development, have been the means of creating our vast 
industrial enterprises. Sanitation and the development of public utilities have 
made possible modern community life. The invention of labor-saving machinery 
and the adaptation of urban conveniences to rural conditions have revolutionized 
farming and made country life enjoyable. The discoveries of modern science as 
applied in engineering practice have worked miracles for the better health, com- 
fort and convenience of modern civilization. 

The profession of Engineering offers excellent opportunities to capable and 
well-trained men. To be fitted for the higher positions in the profession, men 
must not only be trained in the necessary technical work, but must have such lib- 
eral training as will enable them to handle the economic, social and human phases 
of a problem. The School of Engineering recognizes the exacting character of 
work demanded of the modern engineer, and the various courses have been so 
arranged as to give the training in the fundamental sciences and in established 
engineering practice by a combination of work in the classroom, shop, laboratory 
and field. 

The aims which have served as controlling considerations in the laying out 
ot the instruction in the courses of the School of Engineering are : To train men 
to think ; to lay a broad and deep foundation with an outline of the superstructure 
which can be filled in gradually from the practice of the profession ; to encourage 
the student so thoroughly to understand each problem that he can apply the same 
principles intelligently to the solution of entirely different kinds of problems ; and 
finally, to train men to be good citizens as well as good engineers.

^ilHE Engineering Society was organized in September, 1912, with a 
twofold object in view, the general object being the cultivation of a 
more active interest in Engineering work, while its special object was 
to give the student the opportunity to discuss subjects pertaining to 
the line of work in which he is most interested. 

> When the society was first organized, only men in the Junior and Senior 
classes of the Engineering courses were admitted as members. In the fall of 1917, 
however, the Freshman and Sophomore classes were admitted as members and 
allowed to vote. This made all students in Engineering members of the society. 

But since that time the society has made such rapid progress that in Septem- 
ber of 1919 a Seminar course was inaugurated in addition to the regular Engi- 
neering Society. The Seminar course, with Junior and Senior engineers as mem- 
bers, is a course consisting of meetings once every week that there is not a meeting 
cf the Engineering Society. 

At these meetings short talks are given by the students, members of the fac- 
ulty, or men already engaged in the practice of Engineering. Many reputable 
Engineers have been kind enough to come from Washington and other cities, and 
the talks that these men have given have been of inestimable value to the young 
student engineers. 

Meetings of this kind are very instructive and afford the students practice in 
technical public speaking, which every engineer needs as an aid to his profession. 
With these sterling qualities the society has proved to be one of efficient and help- 
ful service to all who are directly connected with it, and to the College.

HE original predecessor of the School of Chemistry was the Depart- 
ment of Chemistry, dating from the beginning of the College. It 
should be noted that it was the work of chemistry as related to agri- 
culture that brought about the establishment of agricultural colleges 
in this country and Europe, of which our College was a pioneer. But, 
largely due to financial difficulties incident to the Civil War, the progress of the 
College, and with it the Chemistry Department, was greatly retarded. It was not 
til after 1886, due to the establishment of the Experiment Stations as depart- 
ments of the Land Grant colleges, enabling the employment of a number of scien- 
tific workers in common, that there was much progress. The real epoch, however, 
in the development of the Chemical Department was in the latter part of 1890, 
due to the second Morrill Act. The College faculty was enlarged, a new Depart- 
ment of Agricultural Chemistry was created early in 1891, with the present dean 
of the School of Chemistry in charge. This department was also to develop the 
fertilizer inspection, a law establishing this work having been enacted about this 
time. The present laundry building was erected to accommodate the new depart- 
ment. This connected with the old laboratory, a brick building of about the same 
size directly east.* In the reorganization of the College in i8y2 the two depart- 
ments were consolidated under the present head. 

The quarters for Chemistry being inadequate, the present Chemistry Building 
was erected in 1896, but was not equipped and occupied 'til 1897. The desks in 
the State inspection laboratories were moved from the old laboratory — the present 
laundry building ; those in Senior laboratory from the old brick building. At the 
time of moving into the present laboratory the assistants in Chemistry were Mr. 
F. P. Veitch. now Dr. Veitch, chief of a laboratory of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture; Mr. (now Dr.) W. W. Skinner, another chief of laboratory and 
one of the College trustees; Mr. H. C. Sherman, now Dr., and head of the de- 
partment of food and nutrition in Columbia University, New York, and Mr. F. B. 
Bomberger, now Dr. Bomberger, Assistant Director of the Extension. Just pre- 
vious to this another assistant was Mr. C. C. McDonnell, now chief of the insecti- 
cide and fungicide laboratory, U. S. Department of Agriculture. Lack of space 
prevents the mention of other assistants and graduates of the department. The 
Chemistry Department was the first to require a corps of assistants, and for a 
number of years was the largest department in the College. Its scope was enlarged 
in 1914 to "The Division of Applied Science," when the Department of Bacteri- 
ology was established. In 1917 it became the "Division of General Science," and 
in 1919 the "School of Chemistry." 

For the coming year the school will have at least five professors specializing 
in agricultural, industrial, organic, physical, physiological and general cliemistry, 
with several assistants and fellows, and at least four chemists engaged in State 
work, in the analysis of fertilizers, feeds and lime, together with several inspectors, 
clerks and stenographers.

ground, is shown on page 42.

At the beginning of the scholastic year the students registered in Chemistry 
were called together by President Sterling, and plans for subsequent meetings 
were made. Meetings are held every two weeks, the time being devoted to lec- 
tures, talks and speeches by the student members on the subjects in which each is 
most deeply interested. 

There have been splendid lectures given recently on the following subjects: 
■'The German Gases Used During the War," "Coal and Its By-Products," "Our 
Gas Mask, ""Rock Phosphates as a Fertilizer," and "The Manufacture of White 
Lead." Occasionally a special program is presented by some eminent professional 
man who has already become famous in the industrial world. 

It is by this means that the organization gives its members a broader and 
more thorough insight into Chemistry, and keeps them in touch with the most 
modern developments of the industrial world along chemical lines. 

This is one of the many activities on the campus which no student can afiford 
to neglect, for it is the affiliation with organizations of this kind that broadens a 
man in his college career.

SURVEY of the curricula of studies in the Maryland State College, 
from the opening of its doors to the public in 1859 down to the 
present, reveals the importance that has always been attached to the 
Liberal Arts as either the basal or the principle parts of collegiate 
instruction. For many years the academic branches of learning re- 
ceived all but exclusive attention, and during the past two decades, during which 
the institution has forged ahead in the various technical fields, there has never 
been a time when the content of all curricula, even though highly specialized, did 
not contain a significant proportion of academic studies. This accentuation dis- 
closes an unmistakable instinct on the part of Maryland people for that which 
both trains and humanizes. During the past year, prior to the reorganization of 
the College on a university basis, an investigation was carried on to ascertain how 
fully the scope of arts instruction, as then given, paralleled that of representative 
arts colleges in both Maryland and other States. The finding was more than sat- 
isfactory. As a result, it became a relatively easy problem of administration to 
organize out of the already existing subject-matter groups an academic division 
which could function as both an auxiliary and an independent unit. Such organ- 
ization was effected during the second term of 1918-1919, and now bears the name 
of the School of Liberal Arts. 

This school has as its object the offering of foundational and specialized 
instruction in language and literature and in social science. It aims to provide a 
stock upon which to graft technical and scientific education ; to prepare the foun- 
dation for business, law, journalism, administration, philanthropic work, the more 
responsible civil service positions, and the higher teaching positions, and to afford 
the opportunity for general cultivation and refinement of the mind. 

For administrative purposes the school includes the following departments : 
Ancient Languages and Philosophy ; Economics and Commerce ; English Lan- 
guage and Literature; History and Political Science; Journalism; Modern Lan- 
guages ; Public Speaking ; Library Science ; and Music. 

Curricula in the School of Liberal Arts are organized according to the group 
elective system. This arrangement undertakes to fit the course to the student 
rather than the student to the course, and particularly enables the school to embody 
in its curricula the following fundamental principles : First, such breadth of 
training as is characteristic of the well-educated man; second, a freedom of elec- 
lion that will motivate study and develop individuality and special aptitude; and, 
finally, the desirability of a student's deciding on a major interest so that there 
will be neither aimless nor dissipated effort. 

By the group elective system a part of every student's curriculum is pre- 
scribed. Such prescription, however, includes only what is foundational. The 
remainder of the student's work is elective. 

On satisfactory completion of two hundred and four trimester hours of col- 
lege work a student will be recommended for the degree of Bachelor of Arts.

T present the College is divided into seven distinct schools. Among 
the few of these seven which were reorganized and put on a more 
substantial basis in the past two years is the School of Liberal Arts. 
Prior to this the school was sadly innate, and was considered nothing 
more than a thing in existence, which occasionally was "called upon" 
in order to keep it from going entirely into decline. 


Today this school is co-ordinate with any on the campus, and, indeed, accord- 
ng to its wonderful progress in the past year, has arisen to the point where it 
has sufficient students to justify the organization of an Academic Society. Al- 
though in its infancy, this society has made splendid advancement ; in fact, like 
ihe Liberal Arts school, has elevated itself to an admirable height, so this society 
:ias lifted itself foremost among the clubs affiliated with the Schools of Agricul- 
ture, Engineering and Chemistry. The Graduate, Education, and Home Eco- 
nomics Schools, as yet, have formed no clubs. 

The purpose of this organization is to hold meetings in such a way that the 
Liberal Arts students will come together as a unit, with one central thought in 
mind and one main goal in view — that of getting as much literary and classical 
information aside from class work as will round oiU the student's mental impres- 
sions, and in that way develop men in the B.A. courses who will be fit for compe- 
tent and creditable work in graduate schools. It likewise furnishes a means of 
recreation that cannot be found elsewhere on the campus.

HILE the College has no endowment nor loan funds with which to 
assist students, it has established for each high and preparatory school 
in Maryland and the District of Columbia one scholarship each year. 
For the three counties of Maryland which do not have high schools, 
Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's, one scholarship each year is given. 
These scholarships have a value of $50 and are credited to the holder's account. 

These scholarships are offered under the following conditions : 

1. The holder must be a graduate of a high school and qualified to enter the 
Freshman class. 

2. The appointment to the scholarships must be made by the county school 
superintendent upon recommendation of the principal of the high school. In mak- 
ing recommendations high-school principals should not only take into considera- 
non class standing, but also inability to meet the expenses of a college education. 

3. The appointment shall be made for the term normally required to com- 
plete the curriculum selected. 

4. The scholarship will be forfeited by indifference to scholastic work or by 
disregard of the rules of the College. 

5. Scholarshijis awarded to preparatory schools and to high schools of Bal- 
timore and Washington shall be given on recommendation of the principals direct 
to the College. Recipients of preparatory school scholarships must be qualified to 
enter the Freshman class. 

6. Applicants from Charles, St. Mary's and Calvert counties may take one of 
the non-collegiate curriculums, or, if entering from another college, may take one 
of four-year curriculums leading to a degree. 


The College also offers a number of fellowships. These may be given either 
to its own graduates or the graduates of other colleges who desire to pursue 
•:ovirses in the Graduate School leading to advanced degrees. Fellowships are 
available in the School of Agriculture. School of Engineering and Mechanic Arts, 
School of Chemistry, and School of Liberal Arts. These fellowships are worth 
from $500 to $720 per year. 

Industrial Scholarships 

There are available each year, as tliey become vacant, a number of industrial 
scholarships, in which students receive compensation for attending to certain pre- 
scribed duties, such as waiting on the tables in the dining hall, janitor service in 
ihe dormitory, and postmaster. Students may frequently earn enough in this way 
to cover board and lodging.

S. Infantry, Professor of Mili- 
^^M tary Science and Tactics, was 
aSe^a horn at Fort Buford, North Da- 
kota, on April 15, 1884. Upon com- 
pletion of his grammar and high- 
school work. Captain Matile enrolled 
at the Peekskill (N. Y.) Military 
Academy, where he was graduated in 
1908. At the very beginning of the 
hostilities between this country and 
Germany he served in the First Divi- 
sion of the first expeditionary forces 
in France. On January 5. 1917, he 
was commissioned as Major. During 
Captain Matile's service in France, 
from July i, 1917, until July I. 1918, 
he commanded a rifle company, Head- 
cjuarters Machine Gun Company (as 
Regimental Adjutant), and saw active 
service in the Toul Sector, Verdtm 
Sector, and with his regiment on the 
Western front. 


was born on October 12, 1879, 
at Elkridge, Maryland. When 
Uncle Sam called for volun- 
teers at the outbreak of the Spanish- 
American War, Sergeant McManus 
responded. The term of his enlist- 
ment expired on his arrival in the 
United States. But the army life 
seemed to appeal too strongly to Ser- 
geant McManus for him to resist it, so 
in 1902 he joined the United States 
Engineer Corps and served in that 
branch until commissioned on July 12, 
1917, as a Second Lieutenant in the 
Infantry. During the war he served 
as a Lieutenant, a Captain and a Ma- 
jor of Infantry. For six months Ser- 
geant McManus also served as Bri- 
gade Adjutant of a depot brigade. On 
March 14, 1919, he was detailed as 
assistant to the Professor of Military 
Science and Tactics at Maryland State 
College. He reported for duty on 
March 17, 1919.

HE Reserve Officers' Training Corps Unit at Mary- 
land State College was established 19 17. In the past, 
due probably to adverse conditions, the instruction of 
this unit was confined largely to infantry drill. 

During the war the Student Officers' Training 
Corps supplanted the R. O. T. C. at this College, and 
was an emergency measure intended for the training 
of men for officers should the need arise. This train- 
mg was intensive, but, due to lack of time, was limited in scope, and the instruc- 
tion could not be as thorough as desired. 

At the beginning of the year 1919-1920 the President and Faculty co-operated 
with the Military Department in allowing better hours for purposes of instruc- 
tion. It was recognized that if military training was to mean more than "drill," 
the Military Department should be placed on the same basis as other depart- 
ments. This was done without dissent. The College authorities plainly desired 
lending their support by satisfactorily fixing the status of the Military Depart- 

Collegiate credits, three-term credits for basic and four-term credits for 
advanced course men, were allowed, and in other respects the military work was 
given largely the standing desired by the War Department. The Professor of 
Military Science and Tactics was made a member of all committees, and through 
the hearty co-operation of both President and Faculty was enabled to lay the 
ground work for the building up of an efficient R. O. T. C. unit. 

A course was established based upon Special Regulations 44, War Depart- 
ment, and, though handicapped for the lack of instructors, was fairly successful 
through the use of student instructors. A schedule of hours has been provided 
which will allow the Professor of Military Science to personally supervise instruc- 
tion of classes. 

.\ military laboratory equipped with automatic rifles, trench mortar, 37 mm. 
gun, etc., was established in the Agricultural Building, and two B/H relief maps 
were purchased by the College. Other military property in instructional purposes, 
;n compliance with the request of the Military Department, has been ]:)laced in the 
immediate charge of a reliable property man, whose sole duty is to care for and 
proi)erly guard same. 

For many years the discipline of Maryland State College was handled by a 
Commandant. Since the re-establishment of the R. O. T. C. a system of Student 
Government was inaugurated. It was to be expected until this new system was

in working order and each individual student realized the responsible part he had 
to play in order to make good this honor system an unfavorable reaction might 

Although the Professor of Military Science had no difficulty in maintaining 
good discipline during the time set aside for military instruction, and the co- 
operation of the student officers and non-commissioned officers was excellent, at 
other times apathy and indifference were in evidence. What was the matter? 
The Professor of Military Science and the Executive Committee of the Student 
Government met informally and discussed the matter. Did the College desire a 
good military unit? Yes. Could the "honor system" be fostered by good military 
morale? Yes. Could there be a real honor system without the basic character 
elements — loyalty, truth, etc. — that military morale is built upon? No. As a 
result of this little conference there was seen the absolute necessity for co-opera- 
tion between the Student Government and the ^lilitary Department, one backing 
the other, and both for the College. Already there has been a big change for the 
better. Students are beginning to realize that bringing up the tone of the military 
work, good attendance, good discipline, real "snappy'' drill, etc., must help the 
College, and will help the College. It is not sufficient that proficiency be attained 
in the classroom or that the individual manage to get through. Esprit de corps 
must be built up. The spirit of emulation between companies, friendly rivalry, 
and finally, a battalion proficient in drills, built upon the honor system, backed by 
every single man here, is the only way. 

The Reserve Officers" Training Corps is now firmly established throughout 
this country. On March 1-2, 1920, a conference was called in Washington, D. C., 
by the R. O. T. C. branch of the War Plans Division of the General Staff, for the 
j)urpose of considering and discussing R. O. T. C. matters. This conference was 
attended by representatives from the R. O. T. C Branch from four department 
headquarters, several professors of military science, and twenty or more heads 
from various institutions throughout the country. As a result of this conference 
it was learned that the R. O. T. C. was not only popular, but was considered of 
vital importance to the civilians throughout our country. 

The Professor of Military Science has the backing of the President and 
Faculty, but needs also the moral support of each loyal student at this College 
to make this unit the best in this part of the country, and to make Maryland State 
a distinguished College.

ARYLAND STATE has been more successful in athletics in recent years 
than any other institution in Maryland. It now stands as one of the repre- 
sentative colleges of the South Atlantic section. No college in the South 
has shown greater growth and pttained more prominence in such a brief 
vime. Many favorable factors almoL^t guarantee a continuation of this progress. 
The College is on excellent terms of relationship with every other college. It is 
a member'of the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association, composed of 
all the big colleges and universities in the South Atlantic section, and its director 
of athletics is president of the organization. Athletic victories have been won over 
Princeton, Cornell, Lehigh. Penn State, Dickinson, Naval Academy, West Vir- 
o-inia University, Virginia Military Institute, University of Georgia, New York 
University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Washington and Lee, Georgetown, and 
numerous other colleges. Johns Hopkins, in football, has not crossed State's goal 
line since 191 1, a period of eight years. St. John's, which used to be State's main 
rival, has been defeated regularly for the last seven years.

Y the blowing of the final whistle of the Thanksgiving- 
Day game we closed what is conceded by all to be one of 
the most successful football seasons in the history of 
Maryland State athletics. Although the outcome of our 
first few games did not prove this fact, we must con- 
sider the caliber of the teams played in comparison with 
our opponents of former years. Instead of confining 
our activities to the smaller colleges throughout Mary- 
land, we broadened our field of football endeavor and took a decisive step toward 
putting ourselves on the same level with the larger institutions of the country. 

Our season was ushered in with the Swarthmore contest, which was lost by 
the score of lo to 6. We started the game with a rush by scoring in the first 
quarter, Riggs sprinting 90 yards for a touchdown after recovering a Swarthmore 
fumble. Our line was practically impregnable, forcing Swarthmore to resort to 
end runs, by which route they finally succeeded in forcing the ball across our line. 
A placement kick in the third quarter completed the scoring for tlie day and inci- 
dentally gave Swarthmore the winning margin. 

In our second contest of the season we turned the tables and came out on 
the long end of a 13-to-o count against the University of Virginia. The game was 
featured by Captain Knode's brilliant playing. His sprint of 43 yards from a 
recovered fumble to a touchdown and two difScult field goals decided the outcome 
of the contest. Both teams played brilliant football throughout the entire game, 
the playing of Mackert at tackle being an outstanding feature of the Maryland 

Our third opponent of the season was the highly-touted West Virginia eleven, 
rated as one of the strongest teams in the country. The game was played under 
adverse conditions, the field being covered with several inches of mud and water. 
West Virginia, however, was prepared for the weather, and the team used mud 
cleats, which aided them in romping through to a 27-to-o victory. Hill of West 
Virginia proved to be the star for the Mountaineers, while Mackert and Nisbet 
played the most consistent game for State.

^efabfa of tl|e Reason 

On October 25th we met the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, our much-hon- 
ored rival. The game was hard fought throughout all four quarters, the final 
issue being in doubt until the latter part of the fourth quarter, when V. P. I., 
through a consistent and successful aerial attack, succeeded in pushing over a 
touchdown. Although there were no individual stars, the game was featured by 
the hard, clean football displayed by both elevens. 

On November ist we invaded the North, having Yale for our opponent. 
Maryland opened the game with a rush, gaining over 40 yards on the first two 
plays, both end runs by Gilbert. However, the Yale line braced, and the beginning 
of the second quarter found State on the defensive. The "Big Blue's'' backfield, 
ied by Kempton, played brilliantly at all times, succeeding in scoring 31 points 
against a line said to be the best they had faced during the year. Although at 
first glance the game seems to be a decisive victory for Yale, it was harder fought 
than the score indicates, and Maryland feels that it made a creditable showing in 
its first appearance against one of the "Big Three." Mackert's vicious tackling 
and Riggs work at end were worthy of comment. 

iNovember 8th found State at Annapolis, where we played one of our oldesi 
rivals in the race for the State Championship. From the time of the kick-off until 
the final whistle blew. State had things all her own way. St. John's backs found 
our line invincible and had to resort to the forward pass route, by which they 
made several gains. These, however, were well distributed throughout the game, 
and as a result our opponents were unable to get within scoring distance. Mack- 
ert's defensive playing in the line and the work of Riggs and Eppley in breaking 
up kicks and recovering fumbles, coupled with the consistent ground gaining of 
Knode and Bosley, proved to be the downfall of St. John's, the final score being 
27 to O. The all-around playing of Semler, St. John's brilliant quarterback, is 
worthy of special mention. 

Our victory over St. John's seemed to mark the turning of the tide, as is 
shown by the scores of our remaining games. Catholic University was met and 
defeated in a hard-fought battle by the score of 13 to o. The game proved to be 
one of the hardest liattles of the season. Although Catholic University was unable 
10 score, the outcome of the game was uncertain until the fourth quarter, when 
State gradually forged to the front. Mackert, State's aggressive tackle, proved 
to be a thorn in the side of Catholic University, his offensive and defensive work 
both being of a high order. The victory was due in a large measure to the general- 
"^hip of Captain Knode, his selection of plays completely baffling our opponents. 

Our next victim was Western Maryland. This game proved to be interesting. 
Our team had little difficulty in making consistent gains through their line. After 
the Varsity had run up a score of 20 to o a second eleven was put in, and suc- 
ceeded in giving the "Preachers" a great battle for the remainder of the game. 

Our Thanksgiving Day game with Hopkins was looked forward to by all for 
several reasons, the chief one being that it was the deciding factor in the State 
Championship Series. Our team went into the game not only to win, but also 
determined to keep Hopkins from crossing our goal line, a feat which she has 
not been able to accomplish for eight years. This determination did not belong 

Tv>o hundred and Iwcniy-eight 



^E^iefa of tijc Reason 

to the team alone, but was shared by the entire College. State rushed Hopkins 
oil their feet in the first few minutes of play. Mackert was shifted from tackle 
to fullback for this game, and went through Hopkins' line with such apparent 
ease that it appeared to be nothing more than paper. Our first score was made 
when Knode received a difficult pass from Mackert and sprinted through a broken 
field for a touchdown. In the second half State came back with even greater 
vigor than before and fairly pushed Hopkins down the field. Gilbert made several 
brdliant end runs, and it was largely through his efforts that the ball was put m 
a position from which Mackert plunged over for the final score. We emerged 
from this game not only with a victory over Hopkins, but also with the State 
Championship safely tucked away for the fourth consecutive year. 

There are perhaps a few special re;isons why we won the championship this 
year, but the general principles are the same which have always made us wm. 
First, by following out certain traditions which have been handed down to us year 
by year ; the necessity of advancing each year beyond the point attamed the year 
before, the mastering of the play of our opponents and planning our game to meet 
it Second, by the hard, conscientious work such as only a State team knows how 
to do. Third, by going on the field with that high courage and determmation 
which has always been characteristic of the State eleven, something like the spirit 
of the ancient Greeks who went into battle with the decision to return with their 
shields or on them. We know it is not possible for our team to come out of the 
fray always victorious, and although sometimes we emerge with the smaller score 
it is always with that spirit which knows no defeat.

The faithfulness with which "Pete" 
Groton performed all of the arduous 
duties of manager of the Maryland 
State football team is well worthy of 
mention here. He rendered services 
as essential to success as that of any of 
the players. 

Assistant Manager 

The untiring eflforts of Chauncey 
Brown, assistant manager, were also 
highly commendable. 


Too much credit cannot be given 
"Bobby" Knode for his untiring ef- 
forts to lead his men to victory in 
every battle. He is a great field gen- 
eral and is so recognized throughout 
the State. One of his most excellent 
qualities is that of punting, in which it 
is conceded by all that he has few 

"Bobby's" graduation this year will 
be keenly felt by the team, and his 
place will be a hard one to fill. 


We were all glad to see "Ike" Mc- 
Donald return to Maryland State 
after his discharge from the army, 
and feel that no better man could have 
been chosen to assume the leadership 
of our squad next year. "Ike" is a 
good clean, consistent player, and ca- 
pable of leading our team to greater 
achievements than ever before.

Mackert, our giant tackle, is the 
man whose slashing plays will never 
be forgotten. Even when he was 
doing the heaviest damage to our op- 
ponents they could not but admire his 
wonderful work. 

Riggs, our star end, was born with, 
a football instinct and a natural apti- 
tude for following the ball. We do 
not wonder at the timidity of his oppo- 
nents, for when he charges, his arms 
and legs move up and ilown like the 
pistons of an engine.

Nisbet is another star of the first 
magnitude, whose opponents stand 
about as much chance of shoving him 
back as they would were they bucking 
up against a steam roller. "Nibby"' 
stands out prominently as one of the 
greatest goal kickers that Old Mary- 
land has ever produced. 

Moore, last but not least of the 
four, has largely helped to put State's 
1919 team on the map. He has a foot- 
ball face that we like, and was a most 
potent' factor at all times on State's

U123 on tl|c (6^^tl•lnl 

,^J.;HE year 1919 marks an epoch in the athletic endeavors of the Fresh- 
w'Sy'i nian Class, in that it is the first Freshman Class that has ever turned 
out a football team of its own. The size of our Freshman Class this 
year was such that a football team could easily be organized, and as 
it was felt that such a team would he an important step toward the 
development of a much stronger Varsity, arrangements were immediately made 
to bring this team into existence. The Freshman enters College with little or no 
football experience, but with a year's play on the Freshman team he is developed 
to such a degree that when he becomes an iip])er classman he is experienced 
enough to take his place on the Varsity. This keeps the \'arsity from being weak- 
ened by new and inexperienced men filling the vacancies of those who leave from 
year to year. A schedule of seven games was arranged, which included several 
.=ihort trips, the most notable of which was the one to Staunton Military Academy. 
It was necessary to get a coach, and in this respect the Freshmen were very for- 
tunate, for they secured the services of Lyman Oberlin, one of the best football 
players State has ever produced, and a man well qualified for such a position. Too 
much praise cannot be given him for his untiring efforts in rounding the team into 

It was a promising bunch of "timber" which ])ut in its appearance when the 
Call was made for candidates for a Freshman team, and it was soon learned that 
plenty of good football material was in it. Although the team did not romp away 
10 victory in every game, we are all well pleased, as several valuable men have been 
developed, and will no doubt bid fair for Varsity berths next fall. Notable among 
these are Branner, Buckheister, Groves, McCeney and Latta. 

A few days after the first call the Freshmen decided to elect a captain. 
Among the men in their midst was one whose reputation as a runner and football 
player had preceded him, and it was only a matter of several days before the men 
were convinced that Jim Latta, who had played for a year at West Virginia Uni- 
versity, was the one to lead them on the gridiron. He was elected to the position 
rMid held it down very satisfactorily.

ROM the viewpoint of the fact that the Maryland State Base- 
ball Team compri^,es practically the same members as that of 
last year, it would appear to the keen observer of college sports 
that an unprecedented season awaits State's baseball nine, and 
that all records are soon to be shattered, so keep an eye on us. 
In addition, this year's team is well fortified, having available 
an abundance of promising new material for every department. 
The goal is already in sight. 
The opening game last year was a record breaker, defeating Georgetown 
for the first time in the history of our College. This defeat gave the team a 
fighting spirit, and, spurred on by college enthusiasm, it went over the top with 
the State Championship under its belt and generally conceded the one best bet 
for the South Atlantic title, having won sixteen out of eighteen games, a triumph 
of which any institution might well be proud. 

Georgetown was again forced to take the short end of a count the first game 
of this year. This is something that a supporter of our team may feel justly 
proud of. The game was marred with errors, for the bad weather preceding the 
day of the game caused the diamond to be slow and slippery. We were extremely 

The second game was with Gallaudet, and was simply a runover for our 
leam. Gallaudet offered little or no opposition, and the heavy batting that State 
is famed for came into prominence at this time. 

The University of Virginia was encountered next, and even though they put 
up a strong fight, we managed to send enough runs across the platter to leave the 
University with another victory to our credit. 

Ttvo hundred and forly-seven 




Richmond College proved to be another victim to the batting strength of the 
crew from College Park, and were forced to leave the grounds defeated. 

The next game of the Southern trip was with North Carolina State College, 
and was one of the best and hardcstfought games ever played at Raleigh. The 
North Carolina team was defeated, and the Maryland boys left Raleigh with five 
wins to their credit against no defeats. 

The University of North Carolina was fortunate enough to tie the game 
played the next day. This was one of the good games of the year, and though we 
did not win, we could comfort ourselves vt-ith the fact that we did not lose. 

Maryland State won from the University of Georgia at Athens on the 6th of 
April. This was a game of batting and breaks for both teams. The pitching was 
rather weak, but both teams proved to be present with their bats. The next day 
the University of Georgia turned the trick on us and showed us that we were not 
fhe only ones who could win a ball game. This was a sad game for our pitcher. 

We took our spite out on the University of South Carolina the next game 
by giving them the short end of a decisive score. 

Then the team returned to us and the very day entertained Penn. State. The 
Northerners proved to have the best of the argument and won. This game was 
marred with errors, both teams making about the same number. 

The team has won seven games and lost two. This is no bad average and 
should make us feel proud of our representatives on the diamond. The Southern 
trip was successful, and it was due to the playing of all the men that made it so. 
The team is to be congratulated.

ULLIVAN is our manager, and 
a better one never lived. He is 
a good scout and well liked by all 
the players. "Jerry" is always on the 
job, and the lietterment of the team is 
uppermost in his mind all of the time. 
"Jerry's" smile is always in evidence, 
and his sunny disposition keeps the 
[flayers in good .spirits. 

Assistant Manager 

OLE is Jerry's assistant. No 

better man "on the hill" could 

have been secinxd for the job. 

"King" is a man of few words and 

uiuch work. He can always be 

counted on. 



OBEY" KNODE'S election to 
the captaincy of this year's base- 
ball team is a positive step toward 
another successful season. His ability 
as a leader was well demonstrated 
during the past football season, and 
we feel sure that under his guidance 
our baseball team will have a year un- 
equalled in the history of old Mary- 
land State.

the players have little to worry them. 
It is largely upon "Vic" that we base 
our hopes for a championship team 
this year.

'flHIS year for the second time the FrcshiiK-n will possess a team with 
■^ ^' :l schedule uf its own. The Freshmen squad of last year was a suc- 
cess, but it is the object of this Freshmen Class to have a more bril- 
liant career. It has excellent j)rospects for a winning team, having 
played three games so far, being victorious in each. Central lost to 
cur Freshmen, 5 — o; Hyattsville, 12 — o; Baltimore City College, 13 — o. 

The Freshman team has chosen for their captain this season Mr. Robert S. 
McCeney. He hails Silver Springs. Aid., which seems to be the home of ball 
jilayers. He is one of experience, having played on our \'arsity one year. 'Trish" 
has a thorough knowledge of baseball, and is worthy of the position he holds.

CTIVITIPIS in llic (rack world at State will be resumed, now that 
the Great War has come to a decisive finish. Many of our promi- 
nent stars have resumed their activities in the athletic field. Track 
is a sport that has flourish.ed in the pre-war days at our institution, 
and Coach Byrd has high expectations of developing a capable and 
efficient team that will bring many honors home to State. 

A few of the stars that will represent the team this year were 
among those that made such a creditable showing in the South 
Atlantic meet at Homewood last spring. These men, although 
handicapped by a late start, nobly overcame the obstacles, and all who were pres- 
ent declared that they did splendid work. 

Coach Byrd is taking an active interest in the welfare of the track team, and 
IS contemplating giving them an early start in preparation for the many important 
meets to be held this year. 

Among the veterans of last year's squad are Bosley, Kirby, Raedy, Ruppert 
and Barall, who are all dash men ; Twilley and Gilbert, who are two of last year's 
distance men, and from indications will have a most successful season. Added to 
this nucleus are a number of talented Freshmen. Among the most prominent 
men of the new members of the squad are Latta, a hurdler who has participated 
;n a number of indoor meets, and Compiler, who has an excellent record in high 
school. We regret the loss of Captain Brown of last year's squad, who did such 
wonderful work in the field events. Brown's loss is keenly felt, but there are a 
number of men available to take his place. 

A very attractive schedule has been arranged, and among the teams we are 
to oppose are Swarthmore, Gettysburg, and Delaware College, each in a dual meet. 
During the latter part of May the squad will journey to Philadelphia to compete 
with the foremost colleges and universities in the Penn. relays. Soon after this 
meet the squad will leave for Blacksburg, Va., to participate in the S. A. Cham- 
jiionship meet. 

With such a wealth of material there should be bright prospects in store for 
the squad. There is a splendid chance of winning the South Atlantic Champion- 
ship for old State.

HIS year saw the resumption of lacrosse at Maryland 

under something like old-time conditions. Due to the 

war conditions we did not have a team in the spring 

of 1918, but last year a few of the old lacrosse men 

who had returned to us, after being discharged from 

Uncle Sam's army, decided tt) organize the team again. 

It was not an easy task wliich they had to face, but 

they went at it with the characteristic Maryland spirit 

and succeeded in rounding a team into shape. Most of the men had never played 

the game before, but they received the training that will make them valuable assets 

to this year's team. 

Practice this year started with a vengeance early in Alarch, and, despite the 
bad weather and other adverse conditions, about forty men appeared as candidates. 
Few are veterans, but such men as "Dutch"' Axt, a star at the game ; "Pete" 
Elliott, whose ability as a player gave him the captaincy; Edel and a few new- 
comers, such as Kubitz, formerly goal keeper for Baltimore City College, make 
a good skeleton around which to build a strong, successful team. 

We cannot overlook the fact that the team is being coached by "Reggie" 
Truitt, one of State's old stars and a past master at the game. The team has a 
hard schedule ahead of it, but with the ability the men have shown so far, coupled 
with the efforts of their coach, we feel sure that the team will make a creditable 
showing, and wish Captain "Pete" Elliott and Manager "Hap" Carroll all the luck 
in the world. 

T'Q>o hundred and sixt^-cight 





HIS good-looking fellow is 
^ "PETE" ELLIOTT, captain 
of our lacrosse team. "Pete" is 
not the kind of a player who stands 
out as a star in every game, but he is 
one of those stead}', consistent play- 
ers without which no team is a suc- 
cess. We know that "Pete" will do 
everything in his power to have this 
year's team t;() down in history as a 

ERE is the man who we con- 
sider the best of them all. 
"DUTCH" is an old hand at the 
game, and it is his spirit that perme- 
ates the team and keeps them fight- 
ing throughout the game. "Dutch" 
is in every play, and with such a man 
on the team it is going to be a hard 
aggregation to beat. 

Ttvo hundred and sixtv-nine 





KRE is the Ijiggest man on the 
team, but his size is not a hin- 
drance ; on the contrary, he is 
a hard man to play against, and he 
will be a world of strength to the 
team this year. We only wish we 
had a few more like EDEL to sport 
the colors of Maryland State's la- 
crosse team. 

( )( ) much cannot be said for 
"HAP" CARROLL for his un- 
tiring eitorts in putting the la- 
crosse team on its feet this year. 
"Ha])" does not say much, Init he 
does a lot of work. The schedule 
this year will prove this. A man- 
ager's job is not an easy one, but the 
boys did the right thing when they 
elected "Hap" Carroll to fill it. 

Tri>o hundred and scvcnl}f 











AST year "JOHNNIE" took 
the work of niaiiaL;er in hand 
and secured creditable results. 
In conseciuence of the College hav- 
ing had no representatives on the 
courts for a year, he arranged a light 
schedule. He also superintended 
work on the courts, which were 
badly in need of attention. If "John- 
nie" accomplishes as much for the 
team this year as he did last, he will 
certainly have performed his man- 
agerial duties. 




.V tennis a steady, consistent, 
persevering player usually de- 
feats an impulsive, reckless, in- 
consistent player. "BOB" proved 
himself to be of the former type in 
his matches last year. As a result of 
this he was elected captain of this 
year's team, and, given proper back- 
ing by all the members of the team, 
he will, without a doubt, make an ex- 
cellent leader for this year's matches.

OR the first time in many years the tennis team of 1919, con- 
sisting of Stone, Love. Slanker and Haig, with Carroll and 
White as alternates, had an extremely successful season. Out 
of five matches State won four, the only match that was lost 
being that played with Georgetown. Only three of these six 
men returned to College this year. Fortimately, an abundance 
of new material was available, and an efficient team will prob- 
ably represent the College this spring. The most promising 
racqueters from past appearances seem to be Trail, Haig, Slanker, Yoshikawa, 
White, Latta, Coleman, Posey and Kisluik. The last four mentioned are Fresh- 
men, and it is likely that they will develop into exceptional players. A probable 
line-up for this season would be: I. Haig (Capt.), 2. Slanker, 3. Latta, 4. Trail 
or Yoshikawa. Of course, the appearance of a "dark horse" or an unexpected 
improvement in the playing of some of those who have appeared on the courts 
before would u])set the dope. Since the schedule is just about as difficult a one 
as can be arranged, it is certain that every care will be exercised to give the best 
men the preference. 


Two hundred and si;vi:nl\)-six 








1 he suggestion has lieen made that the team consist of six. or even as many 
as eig'ht, men this year, and it is possible that State will have a larger team than 
ever before. There is also a possibility that a coach will be procured. Whether 
these progressive steps are taken this year or not. it is certain that the College will 
have a tennis schedule such as has never before been undertaken. We can only 
surmise wliat the season will bring forth in the way of victories and defeats. It 
is safe to say, however, that a majority of wins this year would rank M. S. C high 
in the tennis circles of this section and elsewhere.

^O-EDUCATION at State took a great stride forward last fall, when 
fourteen new girls entered. This is by far the largest number of 
girls that has enrolled at any one session, and we are hoping that 
twice that number will enroll this coming fall. 

The following is the status at the ])resent time : 

Elizabeth G. Hook, Baltimore Lit}- ; lintumology ; njjo. 

H. Willette Bland, Sparks, Md. ; Botany; H)2i. 

Lethea G. Edmonds, Rockville, Md.; Home Economics; 1921. 

Helena D. Avery, Shreveport, La.; Animal Husbandry; 1922. 

Huldah Ensor, Sparks, Md. ; Flome Economics ; 1922. 

Bertha Ezekiel, Washington, D. C. ; Liberal Arts; 1922. 

Mildred Smith, Brookland, D. C. ; Home Economics Ed. ; 1922. 

Rebecca Tarbert, Glencoe, Md. ; Home Economics Ed.; 1922. 

Elizabeth G. Ady, Sharon, Md. ; Liberal Arts; 1923. 

Mary Anderson, Washington, D. C ; Liberal Arts; 1923. 

Elizabeth Cook, Lanham, Md. ; Special ; 1923. 

E. Gladys Crowther, Sparks, Md. ; Home Economics Ed. ; 1923. 

L. Herminia Ellis, Washington, D. C. ; Home Economics Ed.; 1923. 

Ruth Fuhrman, Washington, D. C. ; Agriculture; 1923. 

Marguerite F. Heath, \\'ashington, D. C. ; Liberal Arts; 1923. 

Audrey Killiam, Delmar, Md. ; Home Economics Ed.; 1923. 

Elizabeth L. McCall, College Park, Md. ; Home Economics, 1923. 

Ruth Reppert, Takoma Park, D. C. ; Liberal Arts ; 1923. 

Elva Shaw, Barton, Md. ; Special ; 1923. 

Nellie O. Smith, Brookland, D. C. • Home Economics Ed. ; 1923. 

Virginia L Spence, College Park, Md. ; General Education ; 1923. 

Ruth A. Thompson, Brookland, D. C. ; Liberal Arts ; 1923. 

There are several factors that influenced the increase. A School of Liberal 
Arts was instituted last year and has proved very popular. The School of IDomes- 
ric Science, instituted the previous year, has also added quite a number to the total 
enrollment. The housing facilities were increased by the addition of Carroll liall. 

The first dormitory, Cerneaux Hall, was opened in 1918; another, Carroll 
Hall, in 1919. Both of these dormitories are well filled, so what we are hoping 
for now is a large dcirniitory that will take care of at least two hundred girls. 

Ttvo Inmilrcd and cighl\)-onc 





Gerneaux Hall was reserved this year exclusively for girls taking Home 
Economics. This hall is used as a practice-house, where the girls put into practice 
the theory they learn in classroom. Several of the Home Economics faculty also 
:eside here. The house is beautifully located on a hill overlooking Berwyn 
heights in front and the College group to the right. 

Carroll Hall is located in the Park. It is just a "nice" walk from this house 
to the College, hut the College 'bus. which jiasses the house, is available to all those 
who care to ride. Here the girls live who are not taking Home Economics. 

However, all the girls do not live in these two dormitories. Several live in the 
Park and vicinity. Others commute from Washington. 

Since the first of the year all the girls in the College and the faculty of the 
School of Home Economics have been serving tea Sunday afternoons at ( ierncaux 
Hall to the faculty and students. A certain number are always invited, and the 
girls act as hostesses. These teas have proved exceedingly enjoyable. 

Now that spring is here we naturally turn to outdoor sports. Tennis seems 
TO be the most popular sport, and a tennis court is to be made at Gerneaux Hall. 

All during the year Miss McNaughton has been conducting a class in recrea- 
tion. This class now holds its meetings outdoors. .Some evenings, games are 
played, other evenings long hikes are taken. In this way we learn to appreciate the 
beautiful country that surrounds the college. 

We hope that the enrollment of girls will be twice as great as last fall, and 
we extend a cordial invitation to the girls of Maryland to come and keep up the 
good work of co-education at Maryland State.

'rUDl<:NT GOVERNMENT at Maryland State is a system of self- 
government by which the students regulate their own affairs. The 
linal administration of discipline rests, by law, with the President of 
the College, but he intrusts to the students the power to decide their 
mode of conduct. Outside the classroom the authorities place no re- 
strictions upon members of ihe student body, and so long as any person conforms 
to the laws of society, as long as he is gentlemanly, he may do as he pleases. 

The working organ under student government is the General Students' 
Assembly, which convenes bi-weekly to enact regulative measures and thrash out 
student affairs. The Executive Committee of the Assembly, consisting of two 
members of each class, discuss and refer to the College President for considera- 
tion all matters that come from the Assembly or the individual. An Advisory 
Board from the faculty sits with the Executive Committee at special meetings to 
give impartial counsel, so that the decisions of the students may be to the best 
interests of all concerned. 

This system was inaugurated by the officials because the old one, known as 
the proctor system, was deemed incompatible with the best interests of a progres- 
sive institution, and therefore a hindrance in the development of the College to 
the degree outlined in the plans. In the proctor system of government, where 
regulations of the faculty are administered by a few students upon the others, tl:ere 
1? not the same free atmosphere for expression ; a student does not have the 
power to develop his governing faculties that he should have. 

The working principle of our government is the honor system, which begins 
with the govenunent of the self. The individual is trusted to cf)nduct himself 
properly without the surveillance of authorities or other students. The knowledge 
■ if this freedom removes largely the incentive to do unsocial deeds that are so 
common under authority not willingly accepted by those governed. Moreover, it 
places a responsibility on each man for his personal actions and for the general 
welfare of the school, teaching him that he owes a duty to fellow-members of his 
society and to the whole. It is this sense of social and individual responsibility, 
above all other things, that should be fostered in educational institutions of

TUDENT SELF-GO\'ERN.MENT is still in its infancy at Alarj-land 
State, but rapid progress towards its efficient functioning has been 
made this year. The old constitution proved rather inadequate and 
did not ofifer the range of adaptability desired. This necessitated the 
drawing up and adoption of a new constitution more specifically 
adapted to our conditions. Alaryland State College is in a stage of evolution, 
coming directly between a college and a university, and the problems confronting 
student self-government are radically different from those at other institutions. 
The heterogeneity of the student l:iody this year is far more pronounced than ever 
before, there being a large percentage of Federal Board men and ex-service stu- 
dents who have tended to cling to the traditions of the paternalistic system of 
government of old M. A. C. 

One class period ])er week of College time has been turned over to the As- 
sembly for its meetings. When the amount of business on hand did not justify a 
meeting, a recreative and instructional program of entertainment was planned and 
consuiumated by Professor Richardson. In this way we have had the pleasure of 
listening to several noted lecturers and entertainers, thus giving the activities of 
the Assembly a recreative as well as a work-a-day aspect. 

The main i>roblenis which were discusse<l in our business meetings and either 
solved or now in a process of solution were those relating to student conduct, dor- 
mitory regulations, athletics, military drill, class distinctions and relationships, 
interclass competitions, student-faculty relationships, the improvement of student 
life, the ho: or system for examinations, and excusal from term examinations for 
r.'arhed pioliciency in daily work and monthly tests. 

Our creed of student conduct has not been reduced to words. It demands 
com])Iiance with but one law'that each man be a gentleman and each girl a lady. 
The interpretation of this law is left to the discretion of the Executive Connuittee, 
which exercises judicial power, subject to the approval of the President of the 
College. But few instances have occurred this year where an interpretation was 
necessary, and in each case the findings have met with the approval of the Presi- 
dent. Dormitory regulations have been, reduced to a minimum, and as a result 
petty depredations and vandalisms have become the exception rather than the rule. 
The old Athletic Association, which died during the war, has been exhumed and 
injected with new life, and is now actively functioning. A drive is under way for 
the arousing of pride and interest in the battalion, with the end in view of regain- 
ing a place on the "Big Ten." 

Interclass relationships and activities have occupied an undue amount of time 
in our business meetings this year. A permanent of Freshman-Sophomore 
contests and interclass contests has been drawn up and adopted, and a part of the 
]irogram will be inaugurated this spring. Class privileges and distinctions have 

Tiifo hundred and eighty-six 




®I]e (iSfneral S'tuticuts' i\ssrniliIo 

been sharply drawn, thus furnishing an incentive to the iiKhvidiial members of 
each class to exert themselves to gain the jjrivileges of the ensuing class. The 
spirit of the new M. S. C. is already beginning to be felt, and time is the only 
element necessary for its full development and progress. 

The E.xecutive Committee, which functions as an advisory, executive and 
judicial board of the Assembly, has been exceptionally able and active in antici- 
pating and proposing solutions for student-life problems as these problems pre- 
sented themselves. Full judicial power was not granted this committee until near 
the end of the second term, when it had fully merited and won the approval of 
the Student Assembly. With the grantnig of this power a number of faults in 
.-tudent conduct have been corrected. Too much credit and praise cannot be given 
this committee for the part it has played in hel])ing to make our system of govern- 
'nent successful. 

The student body has been especially receptive and tolerant towards criticism, 
and has never failed to do its utmost to remove any factor which has retarded the 
progress of student government. Some mistakes have been made and some 
lemain yet to be made, but the body has never yet failed to respond to the teaching 
of experience. 

The spirit of the new government is synonymous with the spirit of democracy 
which has permeated our country since the World War — equality and justice, re- 
gardless of class, clan or tradition. The Assembly has been heartily supported in 
this by our President and faculty. Their advice and assistance has been invalu- 
able to us, and with their experience as a basis much has been done towards stand- 
ardizing regulations for the coming classes. Much has been done towards an 
adequate self-government this year, but much remains yet to do. It has been 
definitely proved that our government is a success at present, a solid foundation 
having been ]3re])ared this year upon which the complete structure may be built l)y 
the coming classes.

I HE World War is over, but not its effects," is a common expression heard 
on every side. There is no nation, perhaps, which suffered so much during 
^x^ the recent conflict as Serbia. It was in Serbia that the Archduke Ferdi- 
^^^ nand was killed by a hired assassin ; it was upon Serbia that Austria made 
her list of unreasonable demands, which are well known to all of us ; and it was 
Serbia who replied, "We will agree to all but the last ; that we will resist, and will 
perish, if necessary." 

Serbia did resist, and today we find her almost in a state of collapse. Espe- 
1 ially is she lacking in educational facilities. Dr. Rosalie S. Morton, M.D., for- 
merly of Columbia University, but during the war engaged in relief work in 
Serbia, realizing this peculiar situation, has brought to this country a number of 
deserving young men, most of whom have shown exceptional ability in that coun- 
try. Dr. Morton is placing these students in the leading institutions throughout 
the coimtry to obtain an education, especially a knowledge of agricultural pur- 

While in these respective institutions the student bodies are to asstmie guard- 
ianship over the Serbian students as regards their physical, mental, moral and 
financial conditions. At Maryland State the Committee-in-Charge consists of rep- 
resentatives from all the classes and a faculty advisor, whose principal duty is to 
manage the finances of the Serbian Fund according to the will of this committee. 

The Serbian student who is now at Maryland State is one whom the students, 
faculty and alumni can be justly proud of. He is a man bearing the traits of a 
gentleman, a gentleman even though he is being supported by the funds appro- 
priated by the student body, who is worthy of the respect, esteem and friendship 
that is due anyone who conducts himself in accordance with these principles. He

is Mr. Duslian Hitch. Mr. Hitch spent eight years in the Serhian army, two years 
with the rank of a private and two as an officer. Today he holds the commission 
oi a first Hetitenant. He saw service not only in the World War, but also in the 
war with Turkey in ii;i2 and in the war with Bulgaria in 1913. He saw action 
during the World War in more than a score of the foremost engagements. It is 
with this record that Mr. Hitch has come to America, and it is with this record 
ihat he has come to Maryland State. Mr. Hitch, however, does not boast of his 
meritorious achievements, nor does he claim that these qualifications demand such 
action on the part of the American students who are free and in a state of flourish- 
ing prosperity, but, on the other hand, he is modest and luiassuming, and is 
humiliated when told that the American students are sacrificing their luxuries in 
order to assist him, and is reluctant that such has to be the case. Before enlisting 
m the army he was just entering what corresponds to the Freshman class in oitr 
American colleges. 

At present the greatest handicap for Mr. Hitch to overcome is his lack of 
Icnovvledge of the English language. But to facilitate this, many of the students 
spend a certain time with him each day, hoping in this way to rapidly familiarize 
him with the common expressions and idioms of our language that are essential 
m our everyday life. Many of the professors also are giving Mr. Hitch special 
attention in English, as well as in the other studies he is pursuing. Mr. Hitch has 
readily responded to this instruction, until today he can speak without long hesita- 
rion, as was the case when he arrived heie, and can write with remarkable ease. 

This kind of work is extremely broadening in its nature, and the students' 
association with Mr. Hitch will eventually be of inestimable value to them. The 
fact that Maryland State extended its work to this degree, and the fact that this 
move was sponsored by the students themselves, could be nothing but gratifying, 
and shall in the future l^e a recollection pleasant and inspiring to look back upon.

HE Maryland State Review is the weekly five-column newspaper. It 

is edited and managed by the students with faculty supervision. The 

paper presents the happenings of the students and tlie faculty on the 

campus, makes mention of the important alumni activities, publishes 

interesting news of the Experiment Station and Extension Service, 

and is also a melting-pot for the wit and humor of the campus. 

The Revieiv accepts the responsibility of giving to the undergraduates, fac- 
ulty and alumni interesting news items and reflections of student sentiment in a 
true and impartial way. As 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 the faculty. 

The College paper has been in existence under its present name smce March 4, 
1919, when it tt)ok the place of the Maryland State JVeekly. The new edition set 
an unprecedented standard, and its security of success was assured by the enthusi- 
asm displayed in its support. The Rei'iezc is financed solely by advertising and 
by subscriptions. Difficulties are experienced in keeping the paper on a sound 
nnancial basis, and the business management is usually the heaviest and headiest 
end of college newspaper game. For another year every student will support his 
paper by having an appropriate amount included in his Students' Publication 
Fund. This self -support on his part will impress upon him that this is his paper 
as well as that of the other fellows'. 

EtLch year with the spirit of spring a newly elected staiT greets 'the reader 
with their efforts. Each new year brings a bigger and better College paper. 
Present prospects indicate the need of a larger paper. The present edition is one 
well worthy to be developed into a fitting newspaper for the prosiiective merger of 
State and University of Maryland.

1 1 1", annual meeting of the Poe and New Mercer Societies 
in their Intersociety Debate is an event which has a con- 
spicuous place on the College calendar, for it usually pre- 
sents to the student body at large the best literary talent in the 
College. These annual intersociety debates date far back into 
the history of the literary work of this College. With the 
formation of the Morrill Society, now the Poe, a spirited 
rivalry sprang up between the two societies, as a result of 
which the College each year stages the Intersociety Debate. 

In the spring of 1916 Dr. Patterson, then President of the 
College, offered a silver loving cup to be debated for, this to 
become the permanent possession of the society winning it three 
times. With this as a stimulus, literary work began to take up 
an important place in the out-of-class interests of the students. 
Elimination debates are held in each of the societies to decide 
u])on the rei>resentatives for the big debate. 

The cup offered by Dr. Patterson in iyi6 has become the 
permanent possession of the Poe Society, and in order that 
there might be no break in these competitions he has offered 
another cup to be debated for under the same conditions. To 
the man who, in the opinion of the judges, is the best individual 
debater, is awarded a gold medal. 

The Intersociety Debate held this year was probably more closely contested 
than any other. The subject of the debate was: "Resolved, That the strike is 
justifiable as a means of settling disputes between Capital and Lal)or." The New 
.Mercer Society, represented by Messrs. T. V. Downin and C. W. Cole, upholding 
the affirmative, was victorious, although Mr. Otto Reinmuth of the Poe Society 
was awarded the gold medal as the best individual debater. 

As a whole, these annual Intersociety Debates are productive of much good, 
for, in addition to stimulating the literary interests of the College, they serve to 
foster the friendly rivalry existing between the two societies.

^S]HE participation of Maryland State in the intercollegiate 
!jjd oratorical contest of Maryland colleges is a custom dating 
^^ far back nito the histor}' of the College. Along with the 
activity of the institution in athletics, and the maintaining of 
the cherished tradition fostering the Rossbourg dances, this 
custom antedates all others affiliated with the institution. It 
is one that has always attracted the public, and one that will 
continue to do so. The remarkable ph.ase is, that this College 
up until last year has never encouraged the enrollment of 
Liberal Arts students, due to the weakness of this department, 
yet it has alwa3's been foremost in developing winning ma- 
terial and in bringing home either the contested gold medal or 
honorable mention. On five occasions State has won the first 
decision, and on four, the second. This is a record to be proud 
of. Furthermore, the contest has been one not among mere 
preparatory schools, but one of standard institutions, such as 
St. John's, Western Maryland, and Washington College, which, 
along with Maryland .State, comprise the Oratorical Associa- 
tion of Maryland Colleges. 

Last year. State was represented hv C. W. Cole, who, ac- 
cording to all who heard the presentations, easily won, espe- 
cially considering it was an oratorical contest. But the judges 
did not see fit to pick Cole as the winner, but gave him a medal for second honors. 
This year it is hoped that a decision more compatible with the opinion of the audi- 
ence will be rendered, so at least one of the best orators will be given his just 
reward. The contest last year was held at Western Maryland College at West- 
minster. This year it will be held at .\nnapolis at St. John's College. 

The preliminaries for this year's contest will be held in a few weeks. It is 
hoped that many candidates will make their appearance, because this not only 
stimulates the competition, but at the same time greatly develops a man and pre- 
pares him for the future, even though he may not be selected as the one to take 
part in the finals. Every man should learn to talk intelligently and readily "from 
his feet." There is no better opportunity than this.

N April, 1917. when our country saw fit to declare war upon the then 
world-menacing Hun and assist in stopping their ravages upon civil- 
ization, Maryland State responded cheerfully, as she always has and 
always will, to her patriotic duty. A good many State men joined the 
army immediately ; some went into the ranks, others went to the First 
Officer.;' Training Camp, and some of the Seniors of that year received commis- 
sions directly because of the military status of our College. 

The first demand of our allies was for food and munitions, and this caused 
a great many men to go to work and help increase production on the farm and 
in munition factories. 

It was soon learned that the thing wt needed to win the war was men, and so 
every day during the war more Maryland State men were in the service of their 
country. Every training camp had its quota of our representatives, as did the 
camps of the various branches of the army, navy and marines. 

The military training at College gave State's men an edge on the majority of 
the civilians who entered the army, and this, with the spirit of their Alma Mater 
instilled in them, made it easy for all to succeed. There was a distinct finish to 
the "Maryland State College soldier.'' 

Some names will stand out pre-eminently in the history of Maryland State 
College in the World War. Before America had hardly realized that she was 
actually fighting, word came back from overseas that the first American attack 
against the (k-rmans was led by Captain B. D. Spalding of the Class of '09. It 
•s with great sorrow that we recall that "Dutch" P. E. Wiegand, '18, was the first 
man of our school to make the supreme sacrifice. "Dutch" was lost on the ill-fated 
Tuscania, which was torpedoed by a stealthy "sub." 

Lieutenant-Colonel L. McD. Sylvester probably obtained greater success than 
any other State man in the war. Sylvester was a regular army lieutenant at the 
outbreak of the war, and advanced in the regular order of promotion. Because 
of his conduct on the field of battle he was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel, sur- 

Three hundrnj and one 




passing many of his superior officers. The crowning point of his success was 
when he received the coveted Distinguished Service Cross. The award had the 
pecuhar distinction of being made in Berlin just after the armistice, where Syl- 
vester was on a military mission. 

When "they" gather around and talk of tlie war you can always be proud of 
what Maryland State did "to make America safe for democracy." 

"Swede" Eppley — Were those judges (U. S. Supreme Court) 
brothers, professor? I heard them calling each other "brother." 

Our friend "Judge" Schulz — No, Geary, but they are brothers-

T sometimes seems as if Providence were against the Society this year. 
Although we have many of the old members back taking a prominent and 
active part in the affairs of the organization, we have "slumped" somewhat, 
but it has not been wholly our fault. Whenever there is a meeting of any 
student organization it nearly always falls on Wednesday evening, so that the 
Society is handicapped by either having some members absent or by having the 
meeting postponed. But, regardless of the handicaps and setbacks of the past, 
the future is bright, and we have many both old and new members whom we are 
proud are New Mercer men. We have not officially acted, but it has been infor- 
mally talked of among many of the members, that after the intersociety debate 
we will change our policies of the past somewhat and organize a court to hold 
mock trials ; also, we may divide and carry on discussions as in the United States 
Congress. At any rate, we will have live and interesting programs. 

New Mercer feels very proud that the splendid work of Messrs. Downin and 
Cole in the debate which has just been held enabled us to capture first place. 

Now, dear old Poe, though you have lost, we congratulate you upon the 
ability you have shown, and wish you good luck in the future. 

Poe ^tteraru Society 

HE Poe Literary Society during the present year maintained that high 
standing which was set in 191 5, when, upon reorganization, the Morrill 
Literary Society became the Poe Literary Society. Since 191 5 a pride and 
honor has been associated with membership in the Poe. This year the mem- 
bership was increased to forty members, and a distinctive feature of this member- 
ship is the co-ed element. 

Programs involving discussion, recitations, readings ; addresses, prepared and 
impromptu ; mock trials and debates were productive of much good to the par- 
ticipants. The good resulted from a training enabling the members to publicly 
express themselves authoritatively and convincingly. 

in the Intersociety Debate between the Poe and the New Mercer the Poe 
lost as to its side. However, Otto Reinmuth, one of the Poe representatives, won 
the individual medal for the best debater in the contest. The most-envied victory 
is not a decision rendered by a corps of judges, but the feeling coming from each 
individual in the society that he has mastered the art of speechmaking is some- 
thing more substantial and more far-reaching in its effects. The consciousness of 
this kind of victory pervades every member of the Poe Literary Society.

QE.\RL\' thirty years ago the Rossbourg CUib was born. Until that time 
no college organization had supported dancing, and no dances were held 
on the grounds. In order to promote this delightful mode of entertainment 
the students organized the club that still thrives as heartily as ever. The 
name came from the old Rossbourg Inn. the main building of the Maryland Agri- 
cultural Experimental Station, which in colonial days was famous as a place of 
revelry and hearty entertainment. Here assembled the most gallant gentlemen of 
the South and North on their journeys in either direction. It was the meeting- 
place of the two sections. Here ( leorge Washington and other colonial dignitar- 
ies sto])]ied to i-artake of Maryland hospitality. Certainly our predecessors did 
well in naming our cotillon club "Rossbourg." 

The Rossbourg Club is primarily to support dancing, but its purpose is broader 
than that alone. Besides the wholesome entertaiiunent afiforded, the club gives a

; raining thrit nu other part of the Colleg-e can give, that is, the development of 
'-ocial etiquette. The functions of the organization give the student an oppor- 
tunity to meet the faculty as man to man and to become acquainted with the pro- 
fessors' wives, two things that are usually neglected. They give the student the 
opportunity to meet many young ladies whose valued acquaintanceship would 
otherwise be lost ; furthermore, they give the student the opportunity to meet his 
fellows in a different way than anywhere else ; accordingly, he will learn his fel- 
lows' nature from a dififerent angle. In all these cases the patron of dances ac- 
quires a sense of ease, a self-assurance and a polish that is essential to every 
person's education. This training may not always be in the mind of the Ross- 
Dourg member, but he unconsciously receives its benefit. 

It was with this purpose of social training in mind that the Rossbourg Club 
determined to uphold a high standard of dances. The club, seeing that there 
would be enough functions of mediocre type for entertainment alone, decided to 
make all the dances held this year formal, thus maintaining a high standard and 
a more appreciated function. Five formal dances have been given, and everyone 
who attended will say that these evenings could not have been spent more enjoy- 
ably. The Christmas dance was easily tlie finest function of the first term, while 
the Washington Birthday dance yielded in superiority only to the junior Prom. 
The season of 1919-20 has been most successful. Let our followers preserve the 
rid standard of the Rossbourg Club that has been so successfully lived up to during 
the collegiate season.

HOR many years our College has been without a dramatic club. Its absence 
has been felt by all, especially those who had taken active part in dramatic 
work during their preparatory school careers. Besides these persons there 
are the rest of the student body and the faculty who would be only too glad 
to support such an organization as an essential feature to both the social and intel- 
lectual phases of College activities. 

Realizing the need of a dramatic club, a number of interested men got to- 
gether during the spring of 1919 and organized. Knowing that the time did not 
allow for any dramatic presentation before the year was up, the club decided to 
leave all active work until the fall of 1919, when it could start out upon a new year 
fully organized and ready for work.

Two weeks after the opening of College in September a meeting of the club 
was called. The purpose of the meeting was to decide upon a name for the 
organization and to lay plans for the ensuing year. After considerable delibera- 
tion "The Players'' was finally adopted. Due to the advent of quite a few female 
students, the club felt much relieved as to the problem of obtaining actresses, and 
immediately set a date at which both male and female students who were inter- 
ested in dramatic work could present before the club some selection to prove his or 
her histrionic ability. The Players is exclusive in this respect, because no one is 
admitted who cannot publicly prove his ability. 

The plans for the year consisted of the presentation of two one-act comedies 
during the first part of the year, and then at the end of the year a much larger play. 
For the one-act comedies "The Sleeping Car," by William Deati Howells, and 
"Returning the Calculus," by Louise Latham Wilson, were played with much suc- 
cess at the College Auditorium, January 24. "The Sleeping Car" was again pre- 
sented at Laurel, February 2j . Another offer had been accepted from the Pet- 
worth Methodist Church, Washington, D. C, and "The Sleeping Car" will be 
given some time in April. During commencement week a three-act play entitled 
"The Arrival of Kitty" will be staged in the College Auditorium. This play is 
the final work of the club for the year, and its success can be judged by what the 
club has already done. 

The Players has worked under many adverse conditions. The College has no 
real auditorium, and the stage facilities are poor. Realizing that these conditions 
could not be helped, the club has accepted them in a good spirit, improvised here 
and there, and has, after all, made a success of the year's work. Everyone has 
enjoyed the work and is both happy and i)rou<.l to know that he belongs to the most 
active organization "on the hill."

CUP, work of the student Y. M. C. A. during the current year was somewhat 
handicapped by a late start and the lack of a permanent secretary. But, 
notwithstanding this, under the capable leadership of both Dr. Thompson, 
who so generously tendered his services, and George Plockmnn, the Presi- 
dent, the "Y" has completed a very successful year. 

Through the influence of the "Y" the students have been able to hear and 
enjoy the best talent of Washington and other cities, not only on religious sub- 
jects, but on other etiually important subjects. In addition to this, the "Y" has 
added a spiritual touch to the meetings of the Student Assembly, a touch of which 
we as college students were greatly in need, and which when omitted leaves a 
leeling that something is lacking. Although little has been undertaken along the 
-ines of educational and physical betterment, it is hoped that next year, with better 
facilities and a permanent secretary, these also may be included in the work of the

HE "Maryland State" Bible Class of the Hyattsville Presbyterian Church was 

organized in the fall of 1917 under the leadership of Professor Stoddard. 

During its first year the membership of the class was small, but what it 
lacked in numbers it made up in enthusiasm, and those who composed that little 
handful of original members will never cease to look back with pleasure upon 
the hours which they spent in discussion of the Bible with Professor Stoddard and 
in social and business meetings at his home. 

It was in the fall of 1918 that Professor Stoddard was taken from us. His 
death was a blow to the class, as it was to everyone who knew him. The lessons 
which he had taught, however, as much by his life as by his words of counsel, had 
not been in vain. The class was reorganized as the "Stoddard Memorial Bible 
Class,"' and at the urgent request of its members Mr. Hillcgeist accepted the lead- 

Since that time it has steadily grown, and now has an average attendance of 
twenty or more. It is particularly the purpose of the class to welcome the new 
man who is away at school for the first time and to olifer him a church home during 
his stay at College.

HIS Club was organized by the Department of French in December, 1919, 
and began its active work during the winter term. Its members are the fac- 
ulty of the department, students pursuing courses in French, and others 
interested in the study of French. 

The meetings have been well attended, and much enthusiasm and lively inter- 
est have been shown. The programmes include practical conversation, readings, 
recitations, games, songs, discussions of current politics and literature of France 
r.nd French-American relations and alliance. 

The meetings given for the College in general include motion- picture lectures 
and playlets.

HE Student Grange was organized at Maryland State College a little over 
five years ago. The purpose of the organization is to provide a way for 
students thoroughly interested in country life to train themselves for work 
in county organizations in the State. Like other local granges, the Student 
Grange is a secret organization devoted to the interests of country people. It is 
represented in Prince George's County by Pomona Grange, Maryland State 
Grange and the National Grange. 

The members are selected from the Agricultural students at the College. The 
meetings, which are held every two weeks throughout the college year, are of a 
business and social nature. 

Trips to various parts of the State are taken by members of the organization 
who participate in the programs, installations and initiations of the granges 
visited. During the past year visits were made to granges in Frederick County, 
Baltimore County, Montgomery County, and various granges which are nearby 
m Prince George's County. The Student Grange also sent a quartette to the State 
Grange meeting at Chestertown, in Kent County. These visits are of great help 
to the granges visited, and are of mestimable value to the members of the Student 
Grange, who are thus brought into contact with conditions as they will find them 
in later life. 

Whatever may be said about the other student organizations at the College, 
the Student Grange has a reputation for its regular meetings of full attendance, 
for its spirited activity, and for its ever readiness to co-operate in any constructive 
and elevating cause.

N the last day of the "Advanced Practical Pomology trip" in a little restau- 
rant in Gettyshurg, Pa., seven future stars in the horticultural firmament, 
together with Professor and Mrs. Auchter, waited long and patiently for 

the waiter to bring the meal. During this agonizing period of suspense 

someone suggested that the little group on that trip would be a good nucleus for 
a club of all horticultural students at the College, and it was resolved tliat upon 
the return to school this matter should be taken up. 

Accordingly, a short time after this trip, the horticultural students in all 
classes were called together and a club formed. The purposes of the club were 
duly stated, the name "Hort Club" was adopted, and officers were elected as fol- 
lows: President, W. P. Hicks; Vice-President, A. N. Pratt; Secretary, A. J. 

Since that time the Hort Club has been meeting twice a month at Professor 
Auchter's house, and topics appropriate to horticulture have been discussed, usu- 
ally by members of the club. On one occasion Mr. F. S. Holmes of the Experi- 
ment Station, who was in France with the field artillery, and later taught horti- 
culture to American soldiers at a French university, gave the club a very inter- 
esting talk on "Horticulture in France." Another time Professor Auchter told 
of his experiences while "bumming" through the fruit sections of the West with 
two of his classmates, while at Cornell. 

On the whole, it is felt that the club, which was really an experiment to start 
with, has proved very successful, and has served a useful purpose in bringing 
together the students and faculty of the Horticultural Department and giving 
them a chance to really know each other, and it is to be hoped that future students 
in horticulture will carry on the work of the Hort Club, which has been so suc- 
cessfully started this year.

We have been most suecessfitl this year in the student judg- 
ing contests in which we have participated, and it is safe to say 
that the name "Maryland State" couunands more respect today in 
the agricultural and collegiate world than ever before. In the 
past we had been training only a stock-judging team, but this year 
additional teams were trained to take part i>i other contests, such 
as the judging of dairy products and fruit. While none of our 
teams won first honors, all gave a good account of themselves. 
Several members of the.<;e teams won the highest individual hon- 
ors. It is hoped that zvith the experience thus gained zvc will be 
able in a year or so to develop not only individual stars, but also 
round out a team that ivill bring home the initial reward. 

XElje 5'tuck Hluiigtng Qleaut 

HE Stock-Judging Team was coached by Dr. Meade, and too much credit 
cannot be given him for turning out a team capable of making as good a 
showing as it did under the circumstances. In the first place, little time was 
al'owed for training. Then, again, there was no herd at the College that could 
be used for judging purposes. This handicap was partly overcome by visiting the 
various herds throughout the State, and the members feel deeply indebted to Mr. 
Dennis, Mr. Shoemaker, Dr. Gorsett, Mrs. Manley, Captain Emerson, Mr. Merry- 
man and others, who willingly lent their herds for judging demonstrations, and 
also helped out in many other respects. 

The team was composed of Gray, Snarr and Drawbaugh. The contest was 
held at the National Dairy Show in Chicago on October 6. 

ALKER, Pratt and Perry composed the Fruit-Judging Team. The contest 


was held at Rutgers' College, and all of the colleges of the East were invited 
to send teams. A silver cup is to be given to the team winning three times 
successively. While we did not win the contest, Maryland State had the distinc- 
tion of having a man who took the highest individual honors for judging. Walker 
won the medal offered to the student considered the best judge of fruit. Professor 
Auchter, the coach, can feel very proud of the showing made, es])ecially since this 
was the first contest of its kind that State has ever participated in. The silver cup 
is not going to be won for a year or so, and don't be surprised if it eventually 
rests in College Park.

COURSE in the judging of dairy products was not offered during the regular 
school session, but it so happened that a few students were attending summer 
school last year, and, attracted by the prospects of a trip to Chicago, Pro- 
fessor Gamble was able to round up a few of them and get them interested in the 
ludging of cheese, butter and milk. Frequent trips were made to the markets in 
Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, where tub after tub of butter and cheese 
were sampled. 

The contest took place at the National Dairy Show in Chicago on October 7. 
The team was composed of Drawbaugh, Schaffer and Downin, with Snarr as 

Downin made quite a name for himself and College by standing first in the 
judging of both cheese and butter. This was the first time that one man ever stood 
first in the judging of more than one of the dairy products. In recognition of this 
a special medal was struck off and sent Downin by the officials of the Dairy 
Products Show.

URING the past year the County and State CHibs at College have done won- 
derful work for the advancement of social, political, industrial and eco- 
1^^ noniic life on the campus and throughout the State. Throughout the entire 
scholastic year these organizations have endeavored to work together ; they 
liave 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 graduates, the im- 
portance and value of obtaining a higher education, similar to the quality of that 
given at old Maryland State. 

The clubs have endeavored to place themselves at the disposal of the people 
at all times. They have furnished the county newspapers with news items, have 
furnished information to all inquiries to the best of their ability, and, finally, have 
supported the social side of life by presenting many interesting literary programs. 

There is an organization of men at College from nearly every county in the 
State and from two States, and it is through the untiring efforts of these men 
that the folks back home, both old and young, are kept interested in the affairs of 
the College. The clubs now active at College are : 

Pennsylvania State Club 
Virginia State Club 
Allegany County 
Baltimore County 
Frederick County 
Harford County 
Montgomery County 

Prince George's County 
Somerset County 
Washington County 
Wicomico County

Herbert R. Grossman, a student of George Washington LIniversity, in his prize essay on 
note when he pointed out the fact that Centre College of Kentucky, hitherto unmentioned 
and obscure, owes hir popularity and national eminence to her Football Team of igig. 
-Apropos, and using the forehnger for emphasis, Maryland State College owes her fame and 
national renown to lier Classy Basclnill 1 cam of 1919-JO, now commonly and miiversally 
characterized as — 


lis a Tcryo — Rara Avis. 

This classy and famous baseball team — having won twenty-four of twenty-nine games 
played (lost four, tied one), and still winning — is coached by a Byrd that has raised college 
sport at College Park to the nth power, and then soine ; and it should be stated here at this 
tune that for up-to-the-minute strategy in athletics and right-oll^-the-reel-insidc dope on 
baseball 11. C. Byrd is in a class by himself — alone, supreme, with no other coach in sight. 
It is the get-together-Byrd-tighting spirit that makes his squads so formidable and so hard 
to pull down. 

Facile Princcps. 

"Curly's" notes and rapid-lire signals to his able captain, "Bobby" Knode, first base, are 
flashed with such lightning rapidity by his able assistant manager, "King" Cole, as to check- 
mate each and every play from the "hit-and-run" to "the squeeze" attempted by the opponent, 
be he or she ever so keen — each with a wing fit for a king.

Sullivan, State's cheery baseball manager, with a sinile as big as the ellipse and whose 
good-nature and genial personality know no bonud, is with his temperainent to the Maryland 
State Baseball learn what the kick is to a mule — forcible, effective, uplifting. Sully's 
optimism is under all skies as conspicuous as the monument and a most potent factor when 
the team is pulling up from behind and the breaks are breaking badly. It permeates every 
inch of the field and every corner of the diamond, puts the team on edge and generates life 
and pep. Above all it fosters and kiinlles love of alma mater — that i/oal that each holds

But when the Old Rival is seen to emerge.

'fhe ninth inning rolls 'round — the last man up is called out. While the wires are 
merrily humming the news to the world : "The best team won, M. S. B. B. C," that old 
familiar air "MARYLAND, MY MARYL.AND," is struck up by the college band and sung 
with feeling by the audience. The game is over. Sullivan's sunniest sinilc spreads its 
effulgence over all, whether the last man fans out, flies out, fowls out, or blows out. 'fhe 
campus fairly bubbles with uncorked enthusiasm — all hearts are aglow and ahre. College 
yells and college belles (long may they live) are heard above the din. Concourse wild of the 
greatest of all outdoor sports. The earth quakes as the sun dance and snake dance are 
pulled off and the fox trot and jazz stunts are put on — the cheer leader paving the way to 
fame and glory. "Old Hickory" is touched off at twilight and the heavens are ablaze. State 
soars with her own wings — her cup of joy full to overflowing. Within her portals mirth 
and laughter, songs and chatteri and the dance hold full sway, and continue on without 
intermission, till the team goes to the Held the following day — the team that is so full of 
pep, punch, snap and ginger ; the team that plows along and mows them down one by one ; 
the team that has made good; the team that is dear to its alma mater: the team that put 
College Park, Md., near the heart of the Nation's Capital, on the baseball map of the world.

wear a brown suit? 

Rastus — Dat's what I mean.

HIS year marks an epoch in the growth of fraterni- 
ties at Maryland State. Last year there were three 
Nationals and one Local. This year there are five 
Nationals and three Locals, one of which is a sorority, 
while the remaining seven are men's organizations. 
The sorority is the Sigma Delta. The fraternities, in order of 
their seniority, are: Sigma Nu, Kappa Alpha, Sigma Phi Sigma, 
Nu Sigma Omicron, Phi Alpha, Sigma Tau Alpha, and Alpha 

The first fraternity at Maryland State was organized in 1914, 
during the administration of Dr. Patterson as President of the 
College. This was the Gamma Pi, which is now the Sigma Nu. 
During the same year the Local, which is now the National, 
Kappa Alpha, was granted its charter. In 1916 the Iota Sigma 
was established. This at present is the Sigma Phi Sigma. Dur- 
ing this year the Nu Sigma Omicron received recognition. These 
represent the group that existed on the campus prior to the year 

The recognition and announcement of the girls' organization 
inaugurated a new condition at the College. This should tend to 
draw a larger attendance of the co-ed sex. The members re:pon- 
sible for its organization should be highly complimented.

E STARTED on our journey at the good post — A Preparation — first, hav- 
ing scanned the bulletin board — Contents — to gather a synopsis as to the 
course and attractions of our journey through the broad and comprehensive 
field — 1920 Reveille. During our travels we have "left no stone unturned;" 
in fact, we have entered the remotest recesses of the "minutest" parts. 'Tis 
now that we have reached our end — that we have surveyed the field, adapted it, aranged 
it, rearranged it, decreased it, enlarged it, and, finally, placed it to our ultimate satisfac- 
tion — that we have broken the barrier and arrived at our finishing post — Finis — which for 
one time, we hope, when you have covered the course, that you will say, "My, what a 
delightful journey! I regret that the end is upon us." 

This, our friends, is what the Board of the "1920 Reveille," in behalf of the 
Junior Class or the Class of 1921, has endeavored to do. We hope we have succeeded. 
If not, tell us. It is for our own good. 

So, here, fareivell — may Tve meet again- 
For you, much good and health rve send. 

To future Boards on Reveilles — 
// Tve can aid, Tve are here to please. 
If Tve can help, so let it be. 
For you, success TVe rvant to see. 


Three huntlrcJ and scvcnly-scven 





O WHOM are we highly indebted for the pos- 
sibility and success of our "1920 Reveille?" 
Among others, our Advertisen. Through 
their interest and support this volume has been 
made possible. And it is only fitting, at this 
time, that we express to each and everyone of them our 
sincerest and profoundest appreciation. To exemplify this 
true feeling we have carried the interest, not to the begin- 
ning of "Ads," but through Ads to the very last page of 
the Annual. This has been done by interspersing the Ad 
pages with pages of diary, and, also, by saving six attractive 
group pictures of the campus for the last six pages. 

We trust, by doing this, we have fulfilled our end, and 
that, in the future, many patrons may be the reward for 
your kindness and generosity. 

We hope the Reveilles in the future may be of service 
to you, and you of aid to them, as was the case this year. 

We thank you.

The period of greatest production of Ice Cream corresponds with the 
period of the greatest production of the dairy cow ! Hence the Ice Cream 
Manufacturer takes care of the Dairyman's surplus. 

For their own good, everybody should be encouraged to eat dairy 
products. The dairy farmer should be encouraged to produce more.

sttdlar game for Maryland, scoring twelve 
of the thirteen i)oints registered against the 
Virginians. Just to show how playful the

"Dumps" Langrall ;ind "L'.ob" Ilaig had to 
bunk together in town after the dance, and 
:ibont four A. M. "iMimps" started snoring 
in a sweet baritone. However. Brown and 
Haig had ideas ail their own as to 1 he 
propriety of snoring, especially in (heir pres- 
ence, so they had to tlirow him out of bed. 

October 25: The fellows are through with 
their "full dresses," so they take them back 
to the tailor to be pressed (?). The "danc- 
ing women" at last night's dance are raved 
over. One or two frat pins are conspicuous 
by Iheir absence, but what's the difference. 
The good time was worth it. n'est-ce pas? 
Maryland State loses to V. 1*. I.. (J-H. in a 
hard-luck ganu'. jdayed al I'nion Leiiguc 
I'ark. Washington, 'i'he tield was a regular 
"mud-hole" and "Hill" liarrall took a spe- 
cial liking to sliding along the slii)|ii'ry sod. 
sending up a "subTuarine spi'ay." When tin- 
game was over I'dlly had a dilch digger 
looking like f he Imke of Monte Cristo. The 
g;inie -sure did "clean" the fellows, all ut 
which resultetl in I he White House lunch 
being <'hosen as ;i ^■ery acccjUable pkice t o 

dine. The Freshman team held Baltimore 
Poly l(t a scoreless tie. 

October 26: Everybody sleeps late because 
they haven't any money left to go down to 
"Hill's." "Tom" Downin and "Speedy" Mer- 
rill go to church and ask forgiveness for 
belting on yesterday's game. The game is 
played over again, but this time verbally. 

October 27: "Hill" White has a record at- 
tendance at his "breakfast class." The 
"rookies" in the battalion get "balled-up," 
and wlien double time is given they resemble 
;i mob sceiu' in a movie studio. 

October 28: The "P. T. and W." Pressing Club 
launches an advertising drive. It circulates 
a poster headed: "To all men who wear 
pants." "Flap" Carroll was driving for a 
drag when he made these remarks at a 
Grange meeting: "When a young man comes 
to culh'ge, In' meets the Co-eds and all the 
other wonderful things." 

October 2J» : "P.ecky" jireaches on the nnir- 
velous attiuity of the boys and his ai)ples. 
The ol<l breeze gets in some good work try- 
ing to cut the top oft of our beautiful cam- 
iuis. "Fred" Slanker changed his course to 
Lilieral Arts after making this "bull": "A 
heifer is a young bull." A shoe dealer came 
out to sell some slujes, but he went right 
back when he spotted "C;ilili;in" Smitlfs 

October 30: Tin- student body turns onf lo 
send I he teaTii off to New Haven for its 
game with Yale. The boys shake out a few 
snake dances :mi(1 the old-tinuTs of College 
Park take lo I he cellar, thinking that the 
"Kcbels" lire i)ay ing t hem t heir respects. 

October 31: Hallowe'en. Yon said it. How- 
ever, the bcfys don't raise H- — because 
there wasn't any game played for which to 
celebrate. Everybody goes to a party, shim- 
mie dance, or something, while HuVall and 
Abrams visit the Arcade. The sad part of 
the story, however, is that they meet "Jit" 
Stonestreet and "Chick" Sener there dancing 
with some "women" whose names they knew 
not. Now, ain't they little devils V The 
Co-e<ls make a splurge and give a big 
Plallowe'en dance. "Chaucer" Ady, George 
Clendaniel and a few other members of the 
social select society were present. "liecky" 
Tarbert and "Virginny" Spence posed as the 
Sinmese twins and got away with it for 
awhile until someoni' got too fnmiliar with

nines idiiyed a great game. 

November :i: Sund.iy, the day <»f ri'st. First 
man creejis out of bed at 11.30 A. M. ; last 
juan ("Tubby" Jones) at 4 1'. M. M()lster 
gets up in time for lunch and swears it was 
the first time in his four years here. Some 
of the lioys who have girls in Berwyn go to 
church. The rest go to town and give "F" 
street the once over. 

November S: liack to classes. Ye Gods, noth- 
ing but "zips" are handed out iu morning 
classes. "King" Cole and "LUimps" Lang- 
rall come back from Yale and s[)read propa- 
ganda about Yale's fine dining hall. "King" 
brings back a bill of fare as evidence and 
makes I'rofessor Kramer toss in his sleep 
by his French pronunciation, "liill" (Jard- 
uer and "Dutch" A.xt are heavy losers iu a 
midnight game of "African golf." 

November 4: A good day to kill time. The 
Lacrosse team hobbles out to lake the kinks 
out from last year. If we know anything 
it's more like knots. You said it. And pick 
'em up. The boys start talking about the 
coming St. John's game. They hope to get 
back some of the coin they parted with on 
tin- V. I'. I. game. 

November 5: Kail. rah. rah. big day I F^lec- 
tion of officers for the Student Assembly. 
"Frank" Ha.v is elected president; "Dutch" 
Axt, vice-president, and Co-ed Hook, secre- 
tary. The Freshman l<'am goes to town 
and plays Central High. About thirl y rabid 
rooters also go with the team and get by 
the gale, posing as phiycrs. Ain't that some- 
thing"^ Some yciicrs. those tliirly. with 

"(Jordon" Kdmonds playing the roll of cheer- 
leader. If the crowd can yell like that Sat- 
urday, there's nothing to it. The Freshies 
finally lose 13-(i after having the score (i-O 
in their favor during the first half. Eisemau 
and Uansch atone for the defeat by "pick- 
ing 11 1»' a couph' of Central "chickens." A 
sad feature of the game was the breaking 
of a leg by "Irish" McCeney. I'oor old Mnc 
was wounded In battle, however, so he has 
lots of honor to be contented with. 

November 6: Exams are Hying right and h-ft . 
but the main topic is what odds do we have 
to give St. John's Saturday. The R. O. T. C. 
men are paid off and "BiU" White almost 
"croaks" cashing checks. Somebody droiiped 
a biscuit in the mess-hall and almost knocked 
out a cat on tlie fioor below. The Freslimen 
have a final rehearsal before the entertain- 
nu'nt Wednesday night. The Sophs don't 
need any practice. They're resting on their 
"paddles," as il were. "Curly" gives the 
team some final touches to get lliem ready 
for the St. John's game. 

November 7: Maryland State charters ;i spe- 
cial car to take the bunch over to Annapolis 
tonutrrow. The dance which was to be 
given by St. John's is jiosl poned indertnilely. 
due to the death of the commandant. Fresh- 
men lose to Tech High li4-6, "Irish" McCeney 
doing all the work for the "K:ils." 

November 8; Sun comes up on a fine footbnll 
game. Everybod.v is in fine spirits and has 
money galore to bet on the game. The si)e- 
cial train was about an lionr late and An- 
napolis learne<l some m-w l.ingiiage wIh'u 
the boys found they couldn't get their money 
<-overed. "Chas. S." bets a year's salary on 
I lie g:ime and roots like H — --. Pretty soft 
for Maryland. Wade through St. John's for 
four touchdowns. State, '21; Cadets. 0. One 
St. J«)hn's girl was heartl to renuirk. "Those 
bi<j hired men from Maryland Slate come 
over to jday our little SI. .lolin's in the 
morning, and this very afternoon l hey' 11 
play for tJeorgelown against the Xaval 
Academy." The crowd stays over in the 
"dead town" to see the (Jeorgetown-Xavy 
game. Tliey invaded Carvel Hall and came 
out with "Eor Sale" jiasted all over their 
pocketbooks. (Jeorgetown. (i : Navy. i). 
"Dutch" Axt brings two jaui's back with 
him. Some day. 

November ii: 'J' he day aft er. The barracks 
come to life about one I'. M. The fellows 
buy a paper, then go back to bed and read 
about the game. Everybody has plenty of 
money, so they go in town to see their girls. 
"Al" Perrie claims he'll hiive enougli iiioiu'v 
to last him the rest of the vear.

I he mess-hall's yonng life, however, as we 
si ill got our bread and gravy. Outside it's 
a tine day for dneks. 

November 11: "P.ill" White said the St. John's 
game had an \ii)lifting effect on his business. 
"I'.ill" knows something. A "bolshevik!" sn- 
cii'iy hangs out a red flag from I lie third 
floni- in "1!" section. 

November 13t Another holiday. The reason 
i- Ihal the handsome lads must pose for 
ilieir pictures for the Reveille. Various parls 
of full-dress allire are borrowed and rebor- 
rowed. Silberman and Ezekiel cost the 
photographer about .$20, and it took I wo 
hours to fix the camera. The sensation of 
the day was the picture of the "Easterir 
Sho' Crackers." The only thing lacking in 
tile picture was a cow, and the photographer 
said he wouldn't have to do much touching 
up to get a reproduction of this species of 
]-timinant. The "Penn Garden Club" holds 
its weekly meeting. The "Climax Club" 
also holds a meeting and "Ike" McDonald 
carries off firsi liouors by sending the to- 
lia<-co juice on a twenty-foot journey. 

November 14: .Seems "funny" to go to classes 
again. The boys aren't over-brilliant in their 
recitals, but they don't care about anything 
now except the M. S. C.-C. L'. game, which 
is scheduled for tomorrow. Word arrives 
that Calholic 1'. has signed up three new 
mi'u ("ringers"), one of whom weighs L':i(l 
[lonnds. "Curly" says he doesn't mind that, 
because the bigger they come the harder 
they fall. C. U. tries to get 3-1 odds on the 
game. Some crowd, those Irishmen. 
"Speeily" Merrill "shakes a mean foot" when 
a "shinimie (|ueeu" gets hold of him at a 
Utile informal dance. Tickets for the game 
are on sale at half-price. Foi- some unac- 
colllit;ibIe reason snim- fellows buy two 

November IS: .Marylauii Stale, l:! ; Catholic 
I'niversity. 0. Some game, or rather sliig- 
fest. Mackert played a star game for State 

and he showed pugilistic superiority by 
crippling about half of the C. V. team. Ii 
must have been "all bull" about those new 
men of Catholic University, for we failed to 
see any SoO-ponnders romping around the 
place. C, II. invited Macliert to come over 
and scrimmage against them some day. The 
alumni was out in full force and they heart- 
il.A' enjo.ved seeing our lads hand C. V. some 
of their own medicine. The few boys who 
were able to place bets of course lelebraled 
by drinking a Huyler's soda. 

November 16: A fine day for the fellows to 
let their girls get a glimpse of them. There's 
:i long, long trail a-winding to — "Bill" 
White's breakfast class. At two o'clock the 
fellows shift the scene from College Park to 
"F" street. 

November 1": ".Toe" Reading appears on the 

campus with a trick derby. "Doc Tolly" 

wanted to buy it. but "Joe" wonldn'l "listen 
to it." 

November 18: Donaldson and Starkey go liiiiii- 
iiig and bag about seven "bunnies." "Mule" 
;iiid "strap" for supper. Many fellows would 
luive slept on empty stomachs had they nol 
lain on their backs. 

November 19: "Speedy" Merrill led the As- 
sembly in prayer. After a hot deliate it was 
decided to let the "profs" attend the Student 
Assemblies. Managers and assistant man- 
agers for teams were nominated. 

November 30: The "Eastern Sho' " crowd get 
their tonsils sunburned watching the aviator 
drop out ()f ii plane with a parachute. ^Vn- 
uonnced in tile mess-hall: "The Worcester 
County Club will meet in the hospit:ll." 

November 21: Another IteveiUe dance is Iield. 
The "rats" have to move the tables out of 
the mess-hall after supper. All the fellows 
bring regul:ir "ijueens" out and the Western 
Maryland fontb;ilI jilayers join in for "ciil 

November 23: Maryland State beats Western

ing is not seen on "F" street the entire 
day (?).

a Hght by taking down Johns Hopkins' Hag, 
'J'lic mob mixed it nii good and proper. All 
the boys stay over in Halfimore and eele-

.Not many bets, because onr money wasn't 
covered. T.iiigli luck. The scene ends with 
the boys hitting tin' homeward trail for the 
••Ilenotes lapse of time of three days. 

December 1; Scliool starts again \vith the 
same old grind. Strange to say, everybody 
is liack. Xow you can see the value of pro- 
hibition. "Johnny" Jloraii "slings a mean 
line" about the Army-Xavy game, which he 
alleiideil. Itiggs uuikes the South Atlantic 
first mythical team anil Mackert the S. A. 
second team.

Mdss: "I've already gotten mine." 

December S: Ice-cream is served (or dinner. 
P.iH" White enters protest against the col- 
lege for spoiling his business. Weather be- 
low freezing. "I'harles S." has some speak- 
er at the Assembly who spoke for an hour 
on a straight, so :ill business was piist poned 
until next week. 

I)eceml>er 4: "Frank" Hay aniioiinces : "The 
military department would like the guard 
detail to take down the flag, if it has noth- 
ing else to do." Full moon tonight, so the 
"Lovers' Club" steps out for a big nighl. 

I>eceml»er 5: llarton shiiu's in the military 
class by expounding as follows in answer 
to the question "What is tire of position':'" 
"It is the position of the j)iston rod just lie- 
fore the charge explodes." 

Decemlier 6: Saturday. That's enough. Usu:il 
tranquil scenes are in evidence. Wilhelm 
teaches Hockman how to play lacrosse. 

l>eeember 7: Worse than the day before. All 
the "Arcade fans" sleep late and dream about 
llie tine (?) time they had the night before. 

l>ecember 8: Beginning of tlie last week be- 
fore the exams. Strange how the boys are 
all getting out for those first classes. Kveu 
Quaintance managed to drag his weary frame 
to the first period class. 

December 9: A French Club is organized. 
"Al" Perrie applies for nieinbershiii right 
on the Jump. You know "Al" has a failing 
for "French janes," and hence his gre;it de- 
sire to become an exponent of the "French 
lingo." Bissell pulls a "Charlie Chaplin" ;it 
the battalion drill by juggling his cumpany 
all over the drill field. After his company 
was reorgatiized roll had to be called to see 
if any one had sneaked off. Hot stuff, say 

December 10: "Doc" Thompson and the Y. M. 
C. A. get working good, and "Hoc" promises 
to have a regular "Y" here. "Chancer" Ady 
exfionnds volubly at the Literary meeting, 
but "Speedy" Jlerrill claimed first honors. 
The Student Assembly, as usual, is the scene 
of great oratorical demonstrations, but no 
student business is transacted. 

December 11: "Pete" Groten is "rushed" to 
death getting everything re:idy for the font- 
ball dance tomorrow. Sergt. "Mac" tells his 
class some army jokes ;iini the fellows ;il- 
most get hysteria. 

December 13: Big dance tonight, buys. All 
the "jazz babies" are out in full (orce. A 
bunch of couples miss the last Treasury car 
and have to walk in from Eckington. Sev- 
eral M. S. C. boys also registered at "T'nion 
Hotel" as follows: Abrams. Tlniwley. Cray. 
Terry. Xelson. Hockman and ILiig. 

December 13: Nice day out, but everybody 
stays in. The mystery of this statement is 
explained by the fact that the big exams 
start Monday. Too sad ; too sail.

the story of the "Squash Center Club." which 
occasionally nn-ets at Professor White's 
store. This happened to be one of the oc- 
casions. "Professor White" calls the 
"Squash Centers" to order at eight o'clock 
sharp and calls the roll. He then serves 
everyone a "coke." Bill opens the stove 
door, which is the signal for the meeting 
to convene. "Jit" Stonestreet tells about 
"Gas House Neil." and that starts "Johnny'" 
Eiseman off with his hairbreadth escapes of 
the "southwest." Then "Dumps" Langrall.

hitting on "all four." George Washington's 
picture has to take the count and crashes 
to the floor, but "Dumps" keeps on telling 
about his "Baltimore Street Bluebirds." Bill 
breaks up the meeting by opening the stove 
door again and exclaiming: "You birds 
would sit 'ere all night and see the door 
burnt right h'off the stove." Ransch buys 
a ])ack of "fags" and all light up. The club 
extends a vote of thanks to Professor White 
and tells Bill to expect the club at 1 he 
"breakfast -lunch" class tomorrow.

a few "zips." The battalion, because of the

March 1: Tlie hicroHse S(|ua(l grcts the call for 
practice. Over forty men tvirn (Hit. so there 
is a sliortage of "sticks." "Dutch" Axt and 
his wild whoops are back in the old game 
oiici' more. No drill today because the ele- 
ments were amusing themselves; in a manner 
bctitting North Pule conditions. 

March Z: "Jeff" (Hill) White and "JIutt" 
SI arr almost pulled off a Willard-Dempsey 
affair down at "Bill's" store. In the mili- 
lary class: "What does a silver oak leaf 
indicate?" Tavenner: "A major-colonel. 

March 3: "Knervous Knappen" entertains the 
Freshman class in the auditorium. The 
Sophs change fhe Freshman sign on the top 
of the Engineering Building to read: "Fresh 
Fish, 23 Cents." The lacrosse team is forced 
lo practice in an inch or so of water. Any- 
how, some good swimmers should develop 
before the season is over. 

3Iareh 4: Same did March fourth weather. 
Big night for the "orators." The New Mer- 
cer Literary Society beats the Poe Society 
in the annual inter-society debate. Otto 
Iteinmuth wins the individual honors as the 
best speaker of the evening. 

March 5: At eleven u"clnek a nice calm day. 
At one o'clock rather breezy. And at four 
(t'clock — (di. boy I The wind was blowing 
over the hill like it didn't want to even hesi- 
tate at College Park. As "Bugs Baer" would 
say. "the panic is on." To make matters 
worse, it starts snowing, so not many were 
brave enough to come out to the Reveille 
dance. The music got "stuck" down at the 
Bladensburg Bridge and didn't arrive until 
after nine. Those that did come had to do 
some tall "shimmying" to keep warm. 

March 6: The schedule for the second term 
"exams" is posted. Good breakfast attend- 
ance, and as a result "Bill" White has to 
mark up several absences in his "breakfast 

ticing for over a month. Practically llie 
whole of last year's team is back, so it's a 
cinch as to where the South Atlantic flag 
will fly. 

3Iarch 10: "Jerry" Sullivan starts the "rats" 
working on the diamond. A sure sign of 
spring, say we. 

March 11: The Sophs are getting ready for 
their dance to the upper classmen. It's the 
first time the Sophs have done any work 
this year. The "P. T. & W." Pressing Club 
does a rushing business to "spice up" the 
appearance of the boys for tonmrrow. 

March 12: Sophomore dance. Some music. 
Why even "Frank" Pay was "knocking 'em 
dead" with the old shimmie. 

March 13: Saturday morning at five o'clock. 
A pathetic scene is being enacted. Train 
stops at College Park, and a dozen boys 
wearily fall olf and make tracks for the 
dormitory. Yes. you guessed it ; they are 
the poor unfortunates who missed the "con- 
ducl(»rs' special" and were forced to register 
al "Union Hotel" fur the night. 

March U: McFacblen and "Pete" Elliut were 
found wandering arnnnd in Hyattsville. Mc- 
Ceney goes to church (?). 

March 15: The beginning of a new week, but 
we're too busy to say anything. The 
"exams" start Weiinesday. 

March 16: "Jimmie" Wynkoop brushes the 
dust off his books to prepare for the "great 

March 17: "Man the boats, men, we've struck 
a rock." Only the rock in this case happens 
to be the pesty exams. 

3Iarch 18: Slill "flunking 'em." 

March 7: "Speedy" Merrill goes to see his 
girl to make a date for the Junior Prom. 
Weather warms up and "F" street scenes 
are revived. 

3Iarch 19: Nu Sigma Omicron holds a dance 
in Washington at the Lafayette Hotel. "Lee" 
Kauffman is through with the EXAMS, so 
he beats it back to the farm. 

March 8: "Bill" Kirby is still wandering March 20: This would be a nice day if some 

around up in Berwyn. It begins to look 
serious. "Commy" Matile has the boys out 
for an airing, and Colonel Thayer, inspector 
of the Marylaml district, looks the lads over. 

March 9: Baseball squad reports for action. 
However. "Johnny" Moran has been prac- 

of the "profs" were not giving tests. 

March *;i: "Miss O ." stammered a bash- 
ful y(Ming man by the name of "Pip" Darner,

for the game with GeorRotown Wednesday. 
•■Connny" jlatile lakes the battalion np to 
Oerneanx Hall and \vorks out a ^var pi'ob- 
lem. It only look two honrs to find all the 
men and re-form the balt:ili(ni. 

Miireh 33: "Joe" Frere gets up in time for 
Iniuh. "Bobbie" Knode takes "Gunboat" 
Smith into training for the Soph-Freshman 
eross-eountry run. As part of the training. 
"r.obbie" puts the gloves on with "Gunboat" 
and i)roceeds to batter him up in the proper 
styh'. Then Iloekman and "Irieh" Met'euey 
|int on the "mitts," and did those blows 
rain? I'll say they did. .TnsI like yon "seen 
in I he movies." 

.Mareb 34: Kind ri'ailers. we :irise from cmr 
downy beds this early morning to g;ize upon 
the surrounding territory, resplendent with 
spring. Yes, the air is balmy and we are 
too, because today Maryland State ushers in 
the baseball season by engaging our old 
rivals, Georgetown. After being taxed "four 
bits" to get in. We take our place in the 
warm sun, and the picnic is on. "Vic" 
Keene is on the job and is hurling a great 
game. Hurrah! our tejini is i)laying good 
ball and both sides are scoridess. ,\las, 'tis 
sad. Georgetown has garni'red twu runs. 
The eighth inning is here. Georgetown is 
ahead. 2-0. \Ve simply must win. Let us 
hope, men, tor onr tirsl two players have 
re;iched the sacks. There are two out now 
au<l "Tap" Knode at the bat. Ye gods, the 
third baseuKU] has maile a wild throw of 
"l';ip's" hit. and onr men are racing aronnil 
the bases. Let confusion and Inippini'ss now 
reign, for onr runners Inive crossed the pan. 
and AI:iryland State has taken i he lirsi step 
towards the South At bint ic by beating 
Georgetown 3-'J. 

March 35: "King" Cole is howliug for cnpy 
and "senior write-ups." I'agaunici an.d 
"Moon" Hartshorn "sweep out." All the 
boys st;irt saving up their pennies for the 
.second Georgetown game in M:Ly. 

Jlareh 26: Grand row on today. Someone 
swiped the Freshman banner, which was 
hanging in the mess-hall in prei):iration for 
the Freshman dance tonight. "Dutch" Axt 
announces that unless the class banner is 
i-elurned by noon, the Fn-shmen will forbid 

the Sophs attending. Well, it all blew over, 
for the banner was returned. (Jreat dance 
the Freshmen "blew" to. Y'ea, bo 1 Every- 
one is out, too. Well, why not ? "Virginia's 
stepping" featured the dance, but "Speedy" 
IMerriirs efforts should not be minimized. 

March 37: Lois of things happening now. The 
hlcrosse team has tough luck and loses to 
Poly by a count of 4-2. "Pud" Ternent had 
several "molars" removed frour his nnmth 
b.v an unkind lacrosse stick. The baseball 
li'am beats Gallaudet 20-3. It was some 
wallop, but it wjis also hard on our "cross- 
country base runners." "Vic" Keene yells 
to one of the "dummies" \vhen a fly ball was 
hit into the air: "You can't get it." The 
boys celebrale by charging the "Ninth Streel 
Oper:i" in full force. ,Tohn Ratio

Lyceum Course. :ind he :ic(niilled hiiMsclf

is out to take the last few pictures. ".Viii't 
thiit a sweet-lo(d;iiig batt:ilion." s:iys "S:ini." 
as he snaps the "Commy's pets." The ten-

with "Sam" over which one is the beilcr

today and the fellows are already homeward 
buiind to spend a few days with "Sally and 
(lie (.*o\v." Our alhletic teams are just be- 
ginning' their schedules, so we can only say 
a few words regarding the prospects. The 
baseball team lias already made good prog- 
ress, winning the first three games, and it 
is probable that the defeats will be few, if 
any. The tennis team has just started its 
schtdule and has listed fourteen matches. 
Haig and Slanker are back from last year, 
and with the new men out should have a 
team which will capture honors. The la- 
crosse team is working hard and Axt and 
Elliot should be able to have a team that 
will make the Navy step lively and that will 
win a majority of games. The track team 
has tive meets arranged. "Billy" Barall is 

on the job, and witli "Jimmy" Latta and 
several other stars Maryland should be 
st rongly rei)resented. 

Thf Junior I*rom will be held the middle 
of April, and from all appearances at the 
present time it looks as thpugh the Juniors 
will make the Prom the best ever. At this 
writing "Speedy" Merrill is advertising for 
a girl for our elite social affair, but as yet 
he has only received one answer, and that 
from a "little brown girl" of "■iV2 :^nd Mary- 
land avenue." 

And so. as this day draws to an end, we 
must close tlie Diary of the 1920 Reveille, 
for we hear the dying strains of the bugle 
calling our year book to press, and leaving 
us to gaze with the eyes of the prophet into 
the future months of the school year.

press-room. This process color plate shows the very highest type of printing. 
Should the artistic sense be lacking in any one of the colors, the finished 
product would be disappointing. Then it's too late! Experto Crede!
