HIS year is the anniversary of two 
great occasions and the inauguration 
of another. It is the sesqui-centenial of 
that great date in American history, 
1776; it is the seventieth year from the foundation 
of our great University, and last of all 1926, finds 
us on the threshold of the "Greater Maryland." 
Keep these three dates in mind and increase your 
enjoyment of the Reveille. 

To the Senior Class, the Juniors offer the 
product of months of arduous toil — the 1926 
Reveille. Though it may be imperfect, the 
staff has tried to weave into it the spirit of 
Old Maryland. This is shown by the theme 
of our book; the three dates, 1776, 1856 and 
1926; for in those dates we have the indomi- 
table patriotic fervor of the American Race, 
the diligence of the founders of our great 
University, and the great heritage which the 
Class of '26 leaves those behind to bring to a 
successful culmination. May this book ever 
keep before the minds of those who are 
graduating, the great gifts which the Alma 
Mater has bestowed on all her children.

To the Protestant Pilgrim 
fathers, to the CathoHc Exponents 
of Freedom in Maryland, to the 
Heroic Settlers of the \'ast and 
Mighty Wildernesses, to all, who 
through their Relentless Zeal, have 
made such Countries as America 
possible and such Ifniversities as 
Maryland Realities, the Students 
of this Institution express their 
undying gratitude. 


To Colonel Millard Tydings, 
Hero of the Great War, Alumnus of 
Maryland, member of the Congress 
of the United States, true champion 
of the Cause of his Alma Mater;

To Dr. Woods, our retiring President, the 
staff of the Reveille wishes to express its 
sentiments and those of the entire student 
body. He has been a great President of a 
great University, and it was through his 
devotion and perseverance to the advance- 
ment of the institution, that it has taken its 
stand in the front rank of American Colleges. 
He found a University possessing a glorious 
American past, and a present full of obstacles 
and opposition. He has overcome this 
opposition and made a glorious future 
possible for our school. May she always 
prove worthy of so great a President!

The Senior Class 

"7y/(' Old cro'uciis all" 

|HE last notes of music die away. From out of a large hall comes, 
loiteringly, a throng of people. Amongst the brilliance of gleaming 
whites and flashing colors — for the season is early summer — there 
stand out a number of figures clothed in solemn black. Beneath 
the dignity of mortar-board caps, there can be recognized the 
faces — some bewildered, others gay and self-assured — of the members of the 
Class of '26. To the accompaniment of the University Orchestra, the ever 
faithful Glee Club, and the oratory of our valedictorian, Tom Browne; this 
Class of Classes has received its diplomas from Dr. Woods — ours being the 
last that will bear the signature of Maryland's retiring President. 

It is in this manner that the Class completes its sojourn in the protected 
walls of the University of Maryland. As we pass through the portals that lead 
to the outer world, it is therefore highly fitting that these steps should be taken 
in the midst of impressive solemnity. Ere the gate closes, however, let us take 
a last look into the enclosure of friendships and activities that we will never 
again be able to wholly reenter. 

First, far off in the distance, we behold a sight that startles us into smiles: 
could those trepid youngsters, wearing rediculously tiny black caps with the 
bright yellow buttons, be ourselves? Sure enough, there we are: the obliging 
"Rats" and "Rabbits," the playthings of the feline sophomores, and their 
target for ridicule and things more material, — in spite of all the dignity of our 
first president. Bob Armstrong. But the spirit that was in us could not long 
be held subservient. Although it was perhaps misdirected energy that resulted 
in one morning's discovery of the world's being all over co\ered with 26's, 
big and little, black and white; it was certainly well-aimed energy that won our 
snow battle with the sophomores, and, earlier, had demonstrated itself on the 
Freshman Football field. We see too, however, the muddy water of Paint 
Branch, and feel its wetness as we are dragged into it by the retaliating sopho- 
mores in the annual tug of war. More pleasant, though, is the dim visualiza- 
tion of our bright Freshman Prom in the Armory at Hyattsville. 

And now, a step nearer; behold! We are sophomores! Our numbers seem 
just a little reduced; and look, there are our present officers beginning to come 
to the front ; there ha\e been elected to their present positions, "Stew Whaley," 
"Ham" Whiteford, "Charlie" Barber, and "Tubby" Waters. We entered 
vigorously into the exercise of Class duties: did our best to regulate an unruly 
rabble of Freshman, and got pulled into more water; but we staged the best 
Sophomore Prom yet — this time in the new Gymnasium — and won the Inter- 
class Athletic Events. In other activities our men and women were coming 
fast into the limelight. "Zuke" Supplee is covered with all kinds of glory — 
with three other classmates — from his efforts on the big football team that 
beat Penn and almost licked Yale. Basket-ball was introduced this year, with 
fi\'e of our men prominent on the squad and Faber as captain. 

Another year is past; and there, as if it were yet not over, we see ourselves 
rushing about, like ants on their hill; Juniors, with an acti\e hand in the whole 
University organization; and all the while hastening from one social activity to 
another. Perhaps the revival of the Reveille after it had been dormant for 
two years: — and our Class did it; did it so well that McGlone and Kelly had 
their book rated as "First Class" by the Inter-Scholastic Press Association. 
Ennis and Stoner, too, are seen running the " Diamondback." Another event

belonging particularly to our Class this year is the Junior Promenade, which, 
thanks to the zeal of the Committee, was " the best dance of the year." On the 
athletic fields, we see eight on the Grid line-up; five on the Basket-ball team, 
with Jack Faber again leading; Schrider captaining a like number of Juniors on 
the l5iamond; seven men playing on the champion Lacrosse team; and eight 
performing on the Track, with Joe Endslow breaking records right and left. 
Nor do the co-eds appear idle. Jumping right into athletics with the new 
Women's Athletic Association, they are seen as prominent participators in 
Rifle, Basket-ball, and Tennis activities. Rifle deserves particular mention, 
Betty Amos and Thelma Winkjer adding their abilities to this team that was 
even then of championship calibre. 

When scarcely any break in the continuity, the Class of '26, ne.xt is seen 
to have stepped into the role of seniors. Our new found dignity is yet nowheres 
in evidence. Joe McGlone makes a very fiery President of the Student Govern- 
ment, and Thelma Taylor a capable head of the women. The whole Class 
refuses to turn over the reigns of authority to the Juniors below us: — all 
through this year's record will be read the names of Seniors. 

And now it is ended. We have worked diligently during our years here. 
To carry away with us, however, we have fond memories, much experience, 
and a little education. We have earned our way to graduation by more than 
application to studies: we have been a vital part of the University. Since the 
time we first began to grow accustomed to the ways of Maryland, to the present 
when we speak of "our school," we have been giving of ourselves: and now we 
must lea\-e behind that part that we have given. 

On the other hand, it has not been all gi\'ing: we have received also. So, 
with feelings that come from the heart, we extend thanks to the members of the 
faculty that ha\-e labored with us so patiently; nor do we forget ourdebt to our 
fellow students in the other classes. 

The gate is closing: To you whom we are leaving behind, we command 
the welfare of the University of Maryland, confident that you will "carry on" 
with the building of those structures wherein a part of our hearts will always

SSai has absorbed sufficient knowledge from this course to make such a combination successful. 
Anderson is also a wrestler of no mean repute, and has several successful amateur bouts to his 
credit. But he is somewhat doubtful as to what he will do after he leaves school. He is unable to 
decide whether to take up professional wrestling and tackle "Big Mun" Wayne for his next job, 
or to try the teaching of economics. In any event, "Andy" will put over successfully what he

ELDOM do we find anyone who can do so many things and do them well, as "Kate." She 
is e.xtremely popular on the campus as her election of Secretary for the general Students' 
Assembly proved. The above list of activities is quite inadequate to show her worth on the 
campus. As President of the Y. W. C. A., and as "leading lady" in the Opera Club, she distin- 
guished herself, .'\lthough a certain Football man claimed much of her time, she was ready and 
willing to help others. With all these responsibilities, " Kate" always maintained a good scholastic 
record. It will be hard to find someone to take her place at Maryland, next year.

Hill, in Hyattsville, and at " Bills," "Charlie" has upheld the best traditions of Maryland as 

gS3^ a good sport and a "regular fellow." In the meantime he has developed into an efficient 
economist. The best wishes of all go with you for a successful career, "Charlie."

it. He has served us well and has gone forward among us quietly and unobtrusively without

men of the Class of '26.

A. B. — Arts and Science 

■^ni.lZABETH has only been with us two years, but she has gained many friends among the

li^ College at Fredericksburg, Ya., as a freshman in 1923; and after taking the summer course 
at State Teacher's College in Harrisonburg, \'a., she entered the University of Maryland in 1924. 
Elizabeth is a southern lady and wc enjoy hearing her talk because of the accent. She is a splendid 
student and is always at home among her books, yet she is a real true friend to everyone and we 
shall certainly miss her next year.

"rpYlHIEF" BEATTY, the "Fighting Irishman" from Long Branch, New Jersey, has gained a 
|V_1.| reputation as an athlete and much popularity on the campus. As an exceptionally aggres- 
bswj sive end on the football team, a husky scrapping guard on the basket-ball court, and a 
battling in-home on the lacrosse team, he stands out as one of the stellar athletes produced at 
Maryland. His magnetic qualities in regard to the ladies, his ability to accumulate four personals, 
and his skill on the campus golf team, are all indications of an exceptional man. 

BENJAMIN H. BENNETT, Washington, D. C.

ENNETT has been with us for five years, the additional one being due to the hang-over 
effects of his creditable performances "Over There." Because of a large numl)er of outside 
gg^ activities, however, Bennett has not given to more than a limited number of students the 
pleasure and benefit of close friendship. Externally, he is a quiet man, a student so e.xcellent as to 
earn Phi Kappa Phi before his last semester, and a gentleman capable of effective speech alike in 
serious counsel and informal gathering. To those of us who have gone a little deeper, "Ben" is 
found to possess all those inner virtues of friendship, intellectuality, and sincere endeavor, that one 
would naturally expect from so attractive an exterior. On the campus, his honorary Agricultural 
Fraternity, Alpha Zeta, has reaped benefits from these attributes.

tesa disposition soon gained for him a permanent place in our hearts. He has traveled far and 
wide, in conveyances ranging from a collegiate Ford to the princess of the high seas, the 
Leviathan. The great extent of his travels is shown by his frequent references to the Shoshone 
Dam in Wyoming and the streets of London. How Mary survived during his long absences we do 
not know, but we do know that while he has been far off in body, his heart has remained in Wash- 
ington. C.ood luck, "Fat;" we know that in future years you will continue to cover 
yourself with glory as you have here in football and other activities.

He has divided his valuable time between us and the Practice House, the Practice House 
i^a winning by a small margin. In the spring, this young man's fancy lightly turns to baseball, 
where he has been exceptionally successful. When it comes to tripping the light fantastic, he 
shakes a wicked dog. In spite of all of this "campustry" he is a consistant student. "Reds" 
leaves us with the impression that he will be successful in his future life.

Although she necessarily carried a very heavy schedule, she still found

organizations. Her splendid disposition and never-ceasing smile is bound to win her many friends 
in the future as it always has at the University of Maryland. Of course, we all know that " Mil"

LECTED valedictorian of his class, Tom has received the position for which he was most 

suited. A true son of congress is Tom, whose father helps make the laws of our great nation, 

g>;g| and we are placing our hopes on his son to follow in his Dad's footsteps. This, he will certainly 

do because while at Maryland, he was always a leader and president of several organizations. In 

whatever line he finally decides to devote himself, he will surely win fame. The world 

to will certainly discover Tom.

B. S. — Agriculture 

OHX and his cozy little Buick roadster are well known not only on the campus but on the 

roads between the University and Washington. The "Co-eds" that live in Riverdale and 

tgjid Hyattsville look for him each morning, and although his car is built onlv for two, he manages 
to squeeze in anywhere from three to five, depending, of course, upon their size. He is going to be

after learning that Ed Tenney, Charlie Barber and Mylo Downey expected to matriculate here, 
he immediately moved to Baltimore. 

Joking aside, if "Ducky" applies himself to his work in the future as he has in the past, he

Maryland than has "Zuke" Supplee. For tlie past three years "Tall" has been Maryland's 

aaia outstanding athlete, having participated in football, basket-ball and track, the first two 
teams of which he was Captain. "Zuke" won national fame for his football prowess, receiving 
Ail-American mention for end. However, "Zuke" has not let his fame get the best of hini but 
has remained the same good-fellow and the same true friend, the idol of under-classmen and the 
happy-go-lucky "buddy" of his classmates. Another noteworthy feature of his character is that 
he has not let athletics interfere with his studies. A professor once said of him, "To those who 
slander the American athlete as being a poor student and inferior intellect, I should like to point 
out Supplee as iVIaryland's refutation." A splendid tribute to a splendid man.

a compliment. 

Scholastically, Thelma is not one whit below Thelma athletically, as her election to the girls'

Synopsis of Valedictory Address 

Air. Chairnuui. Fellow Classmates, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

S a representative of the Class of '26, I have this duty to perform, 
but once, and I suppose it is happily so, because it would be useless 
iM express a second time with equal solemnity and as deep feeling 
the thoughts which find expression here. 

I ask your indulgence and patience for a few minutes while I \oice the 
sentiments of the Class of '26, in the termination of its undergraduate career at 
the I'niversity of Maryland. 

This commencement day brings forth memories of four happy years, full 
of great opportunities, and I trust accomplishments in mental growth, full of 
continuing devotion of friends, full of long and exceedingly profitable hours in 
campus activities. 

June and Commencement Week always bring back memories of the classes 
which have preceded us. This year as Seniors there is a satisfying sense of 
accomplishment, not unmixed with sadness with the thought of parting, and 
with thoughts of the future before us and with the sense of our responsibility 
to the University of Maryland. 

One who holds a degree from a State l'ni\ersity, should feel grateful to its 
faculty, who with patience and unstinted labor, assisted and guided him for 
four years. 

The highest tax in Maryland is the tax to support its public school system. 
The State of Maryland has been generous in the support of her State Uni- 
versity which only a small percentage of her citizenship has an opportunity to 
attend. We, as graduates, appreciate what the people of Maryland ha\e done 
for us and the sacrifices they have made, and take this opportunity of thanking 
them. We promise you most faithfully, that when we leave this great institu- 
tion of learning, that we intend to the best of our ability, in our various fields of 
activity, to meet this obligation by rendering the best service that is in us. 

We can perform this service by meeting our obligations and measuring 
up to the highest standards of citizenship. We can be good citizens by faith- 
fully performing our every day duties in our various vocations and professions, 
and whether we are employed or employee, rendering our very best ser\ice, 
remembering that to whom much is given, much shall be expected. 

As graduates of a State University, we should take an active interest in our 
National, state and local go\ernments, and in the enactment and administra- 
tion of its laws. This does not mean that we necessarily should be office seekers, 
but it does mean that we are to use our influence to see that dishonest and 
incompentent men or women are not elected to public office. If every man or 
woman before casting a ballot would consider it the highest and most important 
duty of citizenship, and would never support incompetent men for political 


office and would study the political issues proposed by indi\"iduals and parties 
as carefully and with as little prejudice as he or she studies the principles of 
their individual business, a great and growing reform would be the result. In a 
government by the people and for the people, intelligence, and a faithful 
discharge of duty is necessary to that government's glory and prosperity. 

Today we desire to pass on to the Seniors of '27, to all loyal friends of the 
University, and to those of our class who have opportunities as Alumni, to 
influence the policies of those younger brothers who remain on the campus, 
that heritage of courageous inquiry and unflinching action without which no 
university can long retain its position of leadership. 

Our schools and colleges are the hope of the land. Through the medium 
of our great educational institutions, we may hope to raise the masses of the 
people to a high plant of intelligence and good morals, and with a splendid 
leadership which will cjualify them to assume and discourage the sacred trust 
our fathers left us and hand down to coming generations our great free institu- 
tions untarnished and unimpaired. 

So we end our days as imdergraduates at Maryland, with the thought that 
our devotion to our beloved Alma Mater and our labors for it have just begun.

'HY must all class histories start with the statement that "This 
■lass was the largest in the history of Maryland when it appeared 
on the campus in September— etc., etc.!" (Or some such). 
Naturally we could, too, if we wanted to — but "just for instance" 

we'll be different and adopt some other mode of attack. 

Can it be possible that there was a time when, as "Rabbits" we made our 
debut with beaming noses and our hair fixed in eight "pigtails" of varying 
lengths! — or as "Rats," we suffered the ignominy of being drenched with the 
fire-hose and then warmed at the paddle-wheel! "Who said that?" We 
thought we'd outlived those memories long ago — Well, Shakespeare was right: 

" The evil that men do lives after them, 
The good is oft' interred with their hones." 

But be that as it ma\ — we must on to our second epic of life at the l^ni- 
versity of Maryland— the Sophomore year. Though, before doing so we might 
state that one reason our success was so marked in our Freshman year was that 
we had for our officers that year: Jack Tonkin, President; Roger Whiteford, 
Vice-President; Helen Beyerle, Secretary; Monroe Leaf, Treasurer; and Albert 
Granger, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

Finding that Jack Tonkin, so ably led the red and black of '27, in the 
Freshman year, we again elected him President, also keeping "Money" Leaf, 
as Class Go-getter, other officers were "Benny" LeSueur, Vice-President; 
"Tada" Stevenson, Secretary; and "Smiley" Whiteford, Sergeant-at-Arms. 

With this as a background we came back next year as Juniors with all the 
added responsibilities and attractions we had been looking forward to from our 
baby days. We continued in our same unassuming way to heap glory on the

Alma Mater by donating four men to the Football Team, four to Baseball, 

four to Basket-ball, three to Track, one to Tennis, and two to Lacrosse. 

The girls' Basket-ball team again carried off the honors of the year with a 
clean slate. 

Then the Big Event of the season, our Junior Prom! What could sound 
better — or be better! There's nothing we can say to describe it, we can only 
heave a heartfelt sigh and powder our noses with the dainty little compact 
that was given to us as a favor. 

Thus in the waning days of a fruitful Junior year we look hopefully forward 
to a Senior year which will be a fitting climax to our college life. 


To My Ring 

In years to come when we look it o'er, 

E 're though we be on a foreign shore. 

The ring has worn the figures effaced, 

But it brings back thoughts that are deeply traced. 

There were times when the clouds were of darkest gray. 

At others our lives were bright and gay. 

Then too we've often strayed to brooks, 

And lost all thought of school and books. 

As we trudge along life's yellow sand, 

What memories are bound in this yellow band, 

As time and experience are lost in the past, 

The thoughts of our college days will last. 

Of all the joy that memories bring, 

There's none to compare with the college ring.

T was in the fall of 1924, that the University of Maryland received 
one of the biggest boasts in its history, for at this time, the class of 
'28 entered as Freshman. 

We made an early "debut" into the society on the campus, 
and as a reward for our faithfulness, we were decorated with brilliant colors 
(what could be more brilliant than red). The Class of '27 is truly to be con- 
gratulated for the splendid manner in which they dealt with this noble group 
of young men and women. 

Our class elections were held in the early spring, and "Ham" Adams, 
took up the burden as President of our class. Under his splendid leadership, 
the best Freshman entertainment ever given at the Unixersity of Maryland 
was produced in the early spring. This was shortly followed by the Freshman 
Prom which, in our opinions, was far superior to all the other "hops" of the 
year. The month of June brought our revenge on the Sophomore, and marked 
the close of our first year. 

A glance over this year's Varsity teams in basket-ball, football, lacrosse, 
basket-ball, track, cross-country, etc., shows that the bulk of the honors, in 
these sports, go to the Class of '28, and their deserving athletes. It would be 
hard, indeed, to pick the outstanding men in these activities, as all deserve 
much credit. 

Nor are the men the only athletes in the class. The Girls' Rifle Team, the 
tennis squad, the track team, basket-ball squad, and others of the girls' sports, 
are nobly supported by the co-eds from our class. The many organizations on 
the hill contain a large number of active members of both our boys and girls 
who are proving themselves real workers and leaders. 

We are hopeful that the good records we have made in the past will not 
be lost, but that in our coming years, our junior and senior, our successes will

Dan O'Brien President 

DLL histories of F"reshman classes start with the state- 
ment that this class is the largest that ever entered 
the University of Maryland, etc. We suppose that 
the Class of '29, ran "true to form" in this respect. 

If it did, then that is only one more indication of the growth of 

the great school in which it enrolled. 

There was one change in the general procedure through 
which a Frosh class usually passes, and that was the administra- 
tion of the " Rat Rules." This year these rules were enforced by 
the school as a whole and were much more successful than in 
preceding years. It is frevently hoped that these regulations 
will do their part in making all the members of this, Maryland's 
youngest class, true sons and daughters of the old Alma Mater. 

The Class of '29, has the distinction of having staged one 
of the most successful Frosh Proms ever given on the Hill. If 
'29 continues in its dance giving propensities its Junior Prom 
should be a gala affair. 

A majority of the men in the class showed a live interest in 
activities of various kinds and this indicates that the true spirit 
of '26 will be carried on to a grand culmination throughout the 
coming years.

Women's Athletic Association 

|LTHOUGH only in its infancy — its second year, to be exact — 
the Women's Athletic Association has been functioning with the 
excellence of a tried organization. 

A brief summary of the year illustrates its activity throughout 
the two collegiate semesters. The fall tennis tournament was the initial 
enterprise. This was followed by basket-ball, class games and a "house" 
series. The balmy spring air found the racquet wielders on the courts again for 
the major tournament of the year, and also disclosed track enthusiasts practic- 
ing for a June intra-mural meet. The Association officially closed its year with 
its annual banquet, which was arranged for by Maxine Heiss, and a committee. 
Helen Beyerle acted as toastmistress. 

The Constitution, drawn up last year by those co-eds who felt the urge 
for organized athletics, was amended slightly during the past year. By-laws 
and rules pertaining to each particular sport were added to the constitution. 
In the main, however, the original dictates have been found to be excellent 
regulations for an athletic organization. 

Patricia Wolf, was president this year. Helen Beyerle was vice-president, 
Margaret M. Wolfe, secretary and Eugenia Clements, treasurer. New officers 
of the association, and new managers for each sport, are elected in June for the 
following year.

HE outstanding achie\ement of a successful rifle year was the 
winning of the National Rifle Association's match by the girl 
sharpshooters of the University. Last year's title winner, the 
I'niversity of Washington, placed third with 2,296; George 
Washington's 2,968 points placed it second on the list; while the 
2,983 points shot by Maryland riflers earned them the coveted first place. 

With the exception of four matches, the rifle team won all its scheduletl 
games. Maryland lost to Cincinnati and Washington by one point each, and 
dropped three points below Drexel. In the fifteen matches, six perfect scores 
were made. No perfect score was shot by any of the opposing colleges. 

The season started with a game against the boys' team, which the latter 
won by one point. In a return match the following month the co-eds defeated 
them by five points. 

The year closed with a match with George Washington and Drexel, the 
riflers of both these colleges being entertained during a week end on the College 
Park campus. George Washington walked off with first honors, winning by 
two points from Maryland. This calamity was equalized by the fact that the 
Marylanders had beaten the Washington team in the national matches. 
Drexel, which defeated Maryland in the early part of the season, scored third 
place with 494 points, two below Maryland. 

Helen Beyerle and Julia Louise Behring have been the highest scorers for 
the year, both shooting in all but one of the matches. Three freshmen, Anita 
Peters, Clemencia Gause and Elizabeth Corkins have shot in many of the 
matches, and with Julia Louise Behring, Helen Beyerle, Alma Essex and Mary 
Jane McCurdy form the nucleus for next year's team. 

This year's freshman team was the first yearling team, the members of 
which were incorporated into the varsity. It is hoped that two teams — fresh- 
man and varsity — will be shooting matches concurrently throughout the future 
years of rifle at the Uni\'ersity. 

Dorothy Murray was this year's competent manager. The team was under 
the captaincy of Julia Louise Behring.

Girls' Basket-ball 

|HE group of basket-ball players which this year made up the 
Junior Class team, most of which were on the winning Sophomore 
Team last year, came through the Class series without a single 
defeat. They earned the silver cup which is given each year to the 
winning team. The team outplayed every other combination, 

running up a score of 200 points against the 242 that the three other teams 


The Freshman team was second in the series, winning four out of six 
games, and suffering defeat only at the hands of the champions. The Fresh- 
man forwards made baskets amounting to 125 points during the season. The 
Seniors won two games and lost four. The Sophomore team did not sustain a 
single victory, although it made 75 points against the 42 of the Seniors. 

Maxine Heiss was the \ery competent manager during what has been 
considered the most successful basket-ball year for co-eds. A referee from 
Washington, who officiated at se\eral of the inter-class games, was heard to 
remark that "this year Maryland girls are really playing basket-ball!" 

The house series followed the class games. The Homestead was in line 
to win the championship, having beaten the Y Hut. The team, captained by 
Anna DeRan, who played center, was made up of Irene Tippett and Patricia 
Wolf, forwards; Betty Phillips and Adele Seihler, guards; and Anna Price, side 




iOR the second time in two years, Constance Church showed that she 
is the best wielder of a tennis racquet among the girls at the Uni- 
\ersity of Maryland, by defeating Patricia Wolf in the finals of the 
fall tournament. "Connie's" first victory was in the fall tourna- 
ment the preceding year. 

This fall's tournament was accompanied with more bad weather than any 
distracted manager and players have e\-er put up with. Hopeful young aspir- 
ants for tennis honors withstood the wiles of the weather man, and fell by the 
way in the first few rounds. The score at the semi-finals showed that Olive 
Edmonds and Mrginia Cameron, as well as Connie and Pat had mastered the 
elusi\e backstroke or learned how to play net. Connie beat 01i\e in a love 
match, while \'irginia held Pat to three sets before she was beaten. 

However, the opening of the indoor tennis court in the gymnasium 
furnished a place for practice in inclement weather and Manager Connie 
Church is looking forward to a successful spring tournament.

The Reveille 

Hark! I hear the tramp of thousands, 

And of armed men the hum; 
Lo! A nation's hosts have gathered 
Round the quick alarming drum — 
Saying, "Come, 
Freedom, Come! 
Ere your heritage be wasted," said the quick 
Alarming drum. 

"Let me of my heart take counsel; 

War is not of life the sum; 
Who shall stay and reap the har\est 
When the autumn days shall come?" 
But the drum 
Echoed, "Come! 
Death shall reap the bracer harvest," said the 
Solemn — sounding drum. 

"But when won the coming battle. 
What of profit springs therefrom? 
What if conquest, subjugation, 
Even greater ills become?" 
But the drum 

Answered, "Come! 
You must do the sum to prove it," said the 
Yankee — answering drum. 

"What if, 'mid the cannons' thunder. 
Whistling shot and bursting bomb. 
When my brothers fall around me. 

Should my heart grow cold and numb?" 
But the drum. 

Answered, "Come! 
Better the rein death united, than in life a recreant 
— Come!" 

Thus they answered — hoping, fearing. 

Some in faith, and doubting some. 
Till a trumpet-voice proclaiming, 
Said, "My chosen people, come!" 
Then the drum, 
Lo! Was dumb. 
For the great heart of the nation, throbbing, answered, 
"Lord, we come!"

The Maryland Opera Club 

jOMING to Maryland at a 
time when there were few 
musical activities, Louis 
Goodyear, Director of the 
School of Singing, has done much for the 
development of music in the University. 
It was a hard road, but Mr. Goodyear 
has overcome the obstacles which beset 
his path, and now, as the result of his 
efforts, we can boast of an active singing 
department, from which ha\-e evolved an 
opera club and a symphony orchestra. 
In 1924, the Maryland Opera Club 
was organized, with Miss Elizabeth 
Swenk as its first president and Mr. 
Goodyear as its director. The present 
officers are Stanleigh Jenkins, President; 
Edward Barron, Vice-President; Julia 
Behring, Secretary and Treasurer. The 
Opera Club's first production was "Car- 
melita," an operetta in two acts, the 
libretto of which was written by the director, Mr. Goodyear. "Carmelita was 
given first as a part of the commencement festivities in June, 1924, and met 
with such success that it was repeated at the beginning of the following year. 
The club then started work on " Erminie," the popular comic opera which 
was presented on May 27, 1925, with a splendid cast. Mr. Goodyear's versa- 
tility was evident in this opera, as well as in " Carmelita ", for besides his duties 
as director, he also painted much of the scenery proving himself a scenic as well 
as a musical artist. 

In December, 1925, the club presented an attracti\e program constisting 
of concert numbers by the chorus, soloists and orchestra and a one-act operetta 
"The Magic Hours" by Bartlett. The final efforts this year were concentrated 
in a splendid performance of the popular Gilbert and Sullivan opera "The 
Pirates of Penzance," the leading roles being sung by Katherine Baker, 
Soprano; Olive Kelk, Contralto; Stanleigh Jenkins, Tenor; Dr. Charles B. 
Hale, Baritone; Edward Barron, Basso; Harry Stewart, Basso and Harry 
Kelchner, Tenor.

The Diamondback 

HE DIAMONDBACK, deriving its name from 
that peculiarly Maryland animal, the Diamond- 
back Terrapin, has proved itself a truly Mary- 
land paper. 

Getting inspiration from the former papers; "The 
Triangle," "The M. A. C. Weekly," "The Maryland State 
Review," and "The University Review;" the Diamondback 
has been improved until today it is a true representative of 
old Maryland. 

The successes of this publication are due to such people 
as John I. White, R. N. Young, A. S. Wardwell, Ralph 
Chase and others. 

With the growth of the l'ni\ersity the Diamondback 
has grown in size and power. May this new-found power 
be wisely used to correct all abuses and to keep ever before 
the student body the great heritage that the founders of our 
great institution have bequeathed to them.

The Reveille 

HE Reveille has a very interesting history. It dates back 
to the Junior year of the Class of '97, which, reahsing 
the necessity of a year book, worked toward the produc- 
tion of one. However, their efforts along this line failed 
that year. Next year, as a Senior class, they again worked for a year 
book and in 1897, the first Reveille appeared. It was so called 
because the name signifies the beginning, and it was their hope that 
this should be the beginning of a work that would be carried on by 
successive classes. 

This hope has been realized to a large extent. The Reveille 
was published nearly every year until 1921, when the College Park 
branch of the University joined with the professional schools of the 
University at Baltimore in publishing the Terra Mariae. 

In 1925, the Junior class, or the Class of '26, decided to publish 
again a year book to represent the College Park branch only. They 
called this book the Reveille. 

This year the Reveille is again the result of the determined 
efforts on the part of the staff to put forth a successful publication.

Manager Ennis 

|HE Maryland football team of 1923 set a 

standard which will pro\e hard for any 

succeeding combination to surpass or even 

match, and though the eleven of 1925 did 

not reach such heights, it cannot be said 

that the team failed, despite the fact that it did not 

win a majority of its games. But let lis discuss what 

actually happened last Fall. 

When Maryland lined up for the first clash of 192.5, 
the class of 192(5 distinguished itself by having fi\'e ot 
its members in prominent places on the team. These 
were Captain "Zuke" Supplee, "Fats" Bonnet, 
"Chief" Beatty, "Pat" Lanigan and "Tubby" 
Waters. In the first game, that with Washington 
College, the Old Line eleven was victorious to 
the extent of 16 to 0. Although the opposing team 
was much heavier, it was entirely outplayed. Assuming the role of the wasp, 
Maryland's shifty combination stung the Chestertown team in every point of 
play. They mixed cross bucks with forward passes and twice marched down 
the field for touchdowns, with Thomas, Pugh, and Linkous carrying the ball. 
Each Washington offensive was shattered easily. Their superior weight 
proved a negligible factor, and only when forward passes were resorted to, was 
there any offensive that could be considered really competitive. Maryland 
secured twelve first downs while the Eastern Shoremen had only three to their 
credit. Maryland's offensive in the first half had already netted the two 
touchdowns and had "Curly" feeling that he could safely trust our hopes to 
the reserves. Consequently he turned the remainder of the game over to them 
mainly. Naturally they did not stand out so prominently as did the regulars, 
but they successfully combated scoring attempts on the part of the enemy. 
Maryland's touch-downs were made by 
Thomas and Linkous. 

A third was scored but it was called back 
because of a linesman's being off side. The 
outstanding features were the punting and 
defensive work of Captain Supplee, and the 
smooth working of our "pony" backfield. 
Our second scheduled game, that with 
Western Maryland, was cancelled by them 
because of their inability to produce a 
formidable team that could comply with 
the regulations of the Southern Con- 

The third game, that with Rutgers, was 
more than satisfactory. It was won lOtoO. 
In the language of the Philadelphia Public 
Ledger "A well-drilled, scrappy, Uni\ersity 
of Maryland football team vanquished the 
scarlet of Rutgers 16 to 0, on Franklin 
field." In the first quarter the wind was 
against us, but during the second and third 
periods the Terrapins piled up all their 
points. The game was superbly played on

our part and a well earned victory was the reward. The baffling of the Rut- 
gers attack in the second quarter, followed by the smooth work of Supplee and 
Ham Adams culminating in the first touchdown by "Skeets" Parker, and the 
thrilling march from niidfield resulting in a no less exciting run for the final 
15 yards by "Ed" Tenne>' for the second score, were the two occasions which 
justified the Philadelphia Inquirer in saying that "Maryland was found doing 
some real 'trick' stuff." 

Feeling well satisfied with the outcome of her first two combats Maryland 
was doomed to disappointment when she met Virginia Polytechnic Institute 
on October 17 at Washington and lost 3 to 0. 

The Virginia Poly game inaugurated a series of rainy Saturdays and also a 
series of defeats. Necessarily the playing of the teams was slowed up to a 
marked degree. The "Gobbler" backs, because of their weight and experience, 
seemed better able to adapt themselves to conditions than our own men. 
The winning points went to the Blacksburg eleven in the fourth period after 
it held for downs on the 1.5 yard line and Robertson, quarterback, drop-kicked 
from the 23 yard mark. No amount of line plunging, passing or running by the 
Maryland team was able to overcome the three point ad\antage. Near the 
end of the first half the Black and Gold was in a good position to score, having 
the ball on the 13 yard line, but a lack of time dashed the hopes of the Old 
Liners. After the drop-kick by Poly, runs by Stevens and Thomas carried the 
ball from our 30 yard line to their 18 yard mark. On the next play Tenney 




carried the ball to the 4 yard line, but it was 
called back because of an off side. Thus the 
two chances for scroes went glimmering. 

Running into weather and ground condi- 
tions many times worse than those in which 
the V. P. I. game was played, the Old 
Liners renewed their relationship with the 
L^Tiversity of \'irginia on October 23 at 
Charlottesville. It was evident from the 
start of the game that a lucky break would 
decide the result. That break went to 
\'irginia, and it won 6 to 0. A blocked 
punt of Captain Supplee's on our 12 yard 
line was recovered by Virginia and paved 
the way for the lone score. 

The game was a punting duel, with Vir- 
ginia having a slight advantage. The ball 
was carried over from this point by a \'ir- 
ginia back, who aided by his slippery uniform and the muddy going managed 
to slip from the grasp of two Maryland tacklers. 

Despite the bad weather, the game was well attended by both \'irginia and 
Maryland enthusiasts. It was Virginia's home-coming day and the Cavaliers 
had prepared for a gala occasion. It doubtless would have been a grand affair 
had it not rained so incessantly. 

Maryland met North Carolina in the Baltimore Stadium on October 30, 
and for the third consecutive week the elements conspired against the Old Line 
eleven and it was beaten 16 to 0. 

The game was played after a snow storm had made a lake out of the field 
in Baltimore. The mud was inches deep and Maryland's "pony" backfield 
had very heavy going. Fumbles on account of the slippery ball were frequent, 
and the Tarheels got most of the breaks when the misplays occurred. Indeed, 
several times they recovered their own fumbles for gains. They also profited 
when Maryland was forced twice to make "safeties" on account of the elusive- 
ness of the ball. These accounted for four of Carolina's points. One of her 
two touchdowns was due to a blocked kick. The other was a rather lucky 
break that occurred when a Tarheel back tried to ground a pass when he saw 
none of his own men free. One of his teammates seized the ball and made a 
twenty yard dash with it to score. Maryland played the only really poor game 



.Ml), vs. V. P. I. 




of the season in this contest. 

Playing against Yale at New 

^^^^^^ Haven, on November 6, on dry 

^1^^^^^^^^^ land for the first time in a month 

^^^^^^^^^^ it appeared for a half that the 

■H^^H^ ■ Maryland team was going to rise 

W ^^r^ ' w to the heights reached by the 

J I , ^ eleven of 1923, when the Old 

' ■ Eli's were held to a 14 to 16 

score. However, it was not to 

be, and although the Old Liners 

led 14 to 10 at the end of the first 

half they gave way in the final 

quarter and were beaten, 43 to 

14. It was simply a case of 

Yale's ha\'ing too much reserve 

power to send continually into the combat. Maryland held the best the 

Eli's had for almost three quarters but "Curly" had no such squad as his 

riv'als and the Old Liners could not withstand the relentless onslaught. Lin- 

kous, our husky fullback, created a good impression by tearing great gaps in 

the Blue line. He scored one of his two touchdowns by a five yard slash through 

the position played by Joss, Yale's captain. Kirk Besley and "Knocky" 

Thomas were both consistent ground gainers, and were towers of strength on 

the defense, repeatedly breaking up ¥A\ passes and stopping end runs. The 

line also played fine football until the men wore themselves out. 

This game, coming as it did on the heels of the poor showing against North 
Carolina, proved conclusively that Maryland had a real threat on dry field and 
raised the Old Liners' stock considerably. 

Home coming day, contrary to tradition, provided almost perfect football 
weather. Byrd stadium was filled by alumni, students, and others who saw 
Maryland go down before Washington and Lee, 7 to 3, in a great battle. 

For three periods the wearers of the Black and Gold staved ofi the desper- 
ate attacks of the \Mrginians. Three times the Maryland line held in the very 







shadow of its goal posts and allowed Besley to get off tremendous punts to 
send the ball out of danger. In the third period, by means of Stevens' drop 
kick Maryland scored, and in the final period it seemed that she was on her 
way to another counter when her march was halted by the interception of one 
of her passes. 

At this time the Generals "turned the wolf loose" and made a march to 
a touchdown. Palmer, brilliant back, was the big factor, although it was 
Rauber who actually went over for the touchdown. 

Besley's kicking and the play of the Maryland line were the outstanding 
features of Maryland's play. Washington and Lee had the best team in the 
South Atlantic section, and was picked to beat Maryland by at least three 
touchdowns. The Generals were lucky to pull the game out of the fire. 

Maryland closed her 1925 season by allowing Johns Hopkins to tie for the 
third successive year. This time the score was 7 to 7. 

It appeared as if the game was "on ice" for Maryland, when, in the second 
quarter Stevens took Supplee's pass and sprinted for a touchdown and kicked 
the extra point. In fact, had Maryland had a few more seconds to go in the 
first half it would undoubtedly have had another score, for the Old Liners 
had reached the five yard line when the whistle blew for intermission. 

Fate, it seemed, decided otherwise, for after seesawing back and fourth 
throughout the third quarter, Hopkins, aided by several penalties, finally 
scored. Their try for point was successful by inches and the remainder of the 

MD. vs. J. H. U. 


game was devoted to the futile at- 
tacks of both teams. Captain Sup- 
plee, Bromley, Waters, Beatty and 
Bonnet were seen in togs for the last 
time in this game. 

These last four years have shown 
merely the beginning of a football 
organization at Maryland. Each 
year has brought improvements in 
facilities, greater interest, and more 
wholehearted student support of the 
game, and we believe that succeeding 
Reveilles will tell the story of de- 
served success in this sport. 








|TARTING out three season ago in 
Rasket-ball, a sport that was absokitely 
new to us, we have forged ahead 
rapidly, until at present, we are 
recognized as one of the leading expo- 
nents ot the game in the east. 

Our Basket-ball history, short as it is, has been, 
on the whole, a succession of Maryland triumphs. 
With the acquisition of a new gym, three years 
ago, we started in on our first season of competi- 
tion, and fared rather well. For a green team to 
win victories from Washington and Lee, V. M. I. 
and Richmond, and to advance to the third round 
in the Southern Tournament was no slight accom- 
plishment. Our game with North Carolina, confer- 
ence champion, which we lost by a narrow margin, 
probably was the best of the year in this region. 

1924-25 was outstanding in every respect, and we established a reputation 
which we have more than upheld. Twelve victories out of .seventeen games, 
a record we may well be proud of, considering the class of competition encoun- 
tered, was made. 

Our success in Basket-ball has been due primarily to two things; the ex- 
cellent tutelage of Coach Burton Shipley and secondly the fact that the squad 
has remained nearly intact for three years. Faber, Ensor, Supplee, Beatty 
and Troxell, the surviving members of the first year's squad, backed up by 
Cardwell, Boyd and Stevens, Juniors, and Adams, Linkous, Woodward, 
Welchel and Stevens, Sophomores, made up a formidable squad for the past 
season's game. 

Playing the first game of the 1925-26 season with Washington and Lee, we 
won rather easily by a score of 40 to 27. The entire squad figured in the 
contest and at no time were we seriously pressed. Navy, which won over 
many outstanding quints, was then taken to task by 
the Old Line dribblers, in a rather handy fashion. The 
next three games, with Richmond, V. M. L and a 
second game with Washington and Lee were won with 
little difficulty. The Y. P. L game, because of the 
smallness of our host's gym was close. 

The game with Washington College drew one of the 
largest crowds the gym has ever held, and it will be 
well remembered. It was a clean, hard fought struggle, 
from which we were able to emerge \ictorious. Better 
reserve material was probably the most important 
factor in our victory. However, the floor work and 
general playing of both teams was excellent.

In our encounter with Stevens Tech, we met our first defeat. Regardless of 
how good the visitors were, we must say in justice to ourselves that a decided 
"skimp" was upon us. Our second contest with V. P. I. played on a sizeable 
floor, proved a rather easy game, but such was not the case in the l^niversity 
of Virginia. The Cavaliers produced a better brand of basket-ball than we 
could muster at the time, and won 34 to 28. 

The engagement with North Carolina was somewhat of a repetition of 
the Washington College game; one that was thrilling from start to finish, 
with neither team gaining over a three point lead at any time. The Old Liners 
won by a single point. It is almost impossible to mention, as outstanding, the 
work of any Maryland players, so well did they fill their positions. The con- 
test with West \'irginia was devoid of thrills and was interrupted by numerous 


fouls called on the Mountaineers. They were evidently used to a rougher 
style of play than that practiced in this section. 

After a rather easy victory over Duke Uni\ersity, we won from the 
University of Virginia, thus breaking even in the two games with the Cavaliers. 
Following this, Maryland won a hard fought game from Princeton. It was 
anybody's game up until about the last few minutes, when we amassed a 
six point lead, giving us our margin of victory. The lead changed hands con- 
stantly and it was only by the determined and aggressive type of playing that 
we won. 

Despite the loss of its opening game of the Southern Conference tourney, 
to the Mississippi Aggies, Maryland experienced an exceptional season and 
established an enviable record in wining fourteen out of sixteen games on the 
regular schedule.

Manager Herzog 

|HE track world knows of Maryland. 
K\er since the signing of the Armistice 
the sport of the cinder path has been 
following the trend of all the other 
sports at the University of Maryland 
in their advance to the top. This year seems to be 
such a banner year, that in the light of it all 
previous seasons would seem tame. Therefore it 
would seem better to eliminate any further 
discussion of past years of track and confine our- 
selves to the season of 1926. 

During the indoor season, Coach Byrd con- 
centrated his efforts on the mile relay team. His 
excellent coaching was well rewarded, for Mary- 
land's quartet was credited with being one of the 
fastest and most consistent teams in the east. In 
the Milrose Games at New York they defeated 
Columbia, Penn, and Boston College in the fast 
time of 3.37 3-5. Bowdoin, the pride of New England was the next team to 
meet defeat at the hands of the fast boys from the south. Other victories were 
won in Brooklyn ; and in Baltimore, Yale was humbled before a record crowd in 
the Hopkins 5th Regiment Armory Games. While the relay team was gather- 
ing laurels in the north the rest of the team went to Richmond and won the 
Annual Indoor Meet held there. 

The outdoor season is anticipated with much enthusiasm and the wearers of 
the Black and Gold of Old Maryland are expected to enjoy a very prosperous year. 
Some of the outstanding men on the squad are: Captain Joe Endslow, 
holder of the South Atlantic record for the 440 and an able half-miler; Henry 
Mathews and Lewis Thomas, relay men and good sprinters; Leroy .Sheriff, 
who, with Endslow makes the fourth relay man, guards Maryland's honors 
over the hurdles outdoors. 

Charles Pugh and Roger Whiteford are excellent sprinters. 
The distance races are cared for by John Gadd, Fred Middleton, Neunam, 
and "Bob" Hill; while Diebert, Supplee, Ditman, Shear, Dan Fahey, White- 
ford and Zulick, uphold our banner in the field events. 

The outdoor 
meets did not 
begin until after 
this book went 
to press, so 
naturally a com- 
plete record of 
the trackmen 
cannot be given. 
We can onl}' 
hope that the 
true spirit of '26 
will be shown in 
these, as nobly 
as it was in the 
indoor e\'ents.

|ACROSSE seems to have adapted itself 

to Maryland and Maryland in turn 

seems to have adapted herself fully to 

the "antelope" game. This may be 

seen in the national standing of the Old Line 

^^ lacrosse teams. 

I I ' ^B In the spring of 1923, in spite of losses of closely 

M ' ij^^H contested games to Hopkins and the Naval 
Academy, Maryland was a serious contender for 
national honors. Captain-elect Marty was named 
all-American and in addition, Marden, Burger, 
Branner, McQuade and Heidalback were named on 
secondary all-American teams. 

The success of the following season far outstrips 
that of '23. This year we defeated Pennsylvania, Stevens, Navy and 
Hopkins. The Naval Academy had not been defeated for seven years 
prior to this. 

Our steady climb upwards had its climax in the season of 1925, 
when, under the leadership of Captain Burger, Old Maryland won the 
Southern Di\ision Title of the Inter-Collegiate League, winning from 
Lehigh, Hopkins, New York University, the University of Pennsyl- 
\ania and Swarthmore, and playing a tie with Ste\ens. 

For the present season we have but 
one game to show us how successful our 
team will be. This is the game with 
the combined teams of the English Uni- 
versities of Cambridge and Oxford. In 
this game the '26 team responded nobly 
to the excellent tutelage of Coach Truitt 
and defeated the Britishers with a score of 
11 to 4. 

The trend of Old Maryland seems ever 

upward and onward and may the great 

Spirit of '26 which so fully permeates all 

other activities come to a full and grand 

climax in the record of the Lacrosse Team 

of 1926.

|HE history of baseball in 1923 

is too deeply buried under a 

mass of tradition and lore for 

us to uncover it. Nevertheless 

we lia\e every reason to believe that the 

season was good, and that under the 

captaincy of "Rosy" Pollock the "Climax 

Club" Flourished. 

In 1924, however, the team was rather 
successful despite the postponement of 
many games because of rain or wet fields. 
Under Captain Bob Burdett the Old 
Liners defeated the Catholic University to 
wind up a fairly good year. "Pete" 
Schrider of the Class of '26 was elected to the Captaincy for 1925. 

Under the leadership of "Pete" the nine won half its games and defeated 
such teams as North Carolina, Washington and Lee, South Carolina, Lehigh, 
Richmond and Hopkins. Walter Troxell of the class of '26 was elected to 
succeed Captain Schrider. Other members of the class who helped to make the 
year successful were "Archie" Spinney and "Ed" Nihiser. 

This season the cold weather handicapped the practice considerably, but 
the nine was able to defeat the llniversity of Richmond in the first game. It is 
too early to tell just how things will turn out, but it is at least safe to say that 
all indications are exceedingly favorable.

GREAT deal of interest has been shown in Inter- 
fraternity Basket-ball at Maryland. For the third 
consecutive year the Delta Sigma Phi team has 
captured the title of the league. Delta Mu, the 
winner in the Local group has also had the distinction of con- 
testing the National loop title holder for the championship. 
It is safe to say that the 1927 season will see the same if not 
greater interest shown in this indoor game.

^^serve Officers Training 


The Reserve Officers' Training Corps 

|HE work of the department of Military 
Science and Tactics has been very favor- 
able this year. The untiring efforts of 
Major Everett and his staff have in a 
large degree been responsible for this development. 

The training a student undergoes while attached to 
this department is of great benefit to him, not only 
as a soldier, but in the rudiments of citizenship and 
patriotism. The cadet learns things during his course 
that he will carry with him all through life. 

The Reserve Officers' Training Corps is a universal 
institution throughout the universities and colleges 
of the United States. Every year the War Department 
holds a general inspection of all the cadet units of the 
nation. They choose from these units a group that 
is above the average in its training and these units 
are put on a list of Distinguished Colleges. The 
University of Maryland Battalion is now enjoying 
its fourth consecutive year upon this list. It is the 

desire of every man and officer in the department to keep our school upon this

society for the betterment of the li\-ing conditions of 
the poor oppressed run down dogs upon our campus. 
One of the o\'erslept, underfed defenders of the noble race of 
canine. We, the editors, when we look upon this noble and 
intelligent visage, into those deep lustrous eyes cannot but think 
of the unceasing toil through their owner has passed to help 
clutter up the Campus. We take the greatest pleasure in dedica- 
ting this great work to (Anax agoras) Dog.

HE writing of a foreword is a serious and 
difficult task. One does not realize the 
importance and significance vested in that 
small jot of words at the beginning of all 
great publications. If the foreword is a "FLOP" the 
whole book structure crumbles and the editor has a 
basket-full of efforts and waste paper. 

After much honest and deliberate consideration on 
this stupendous task we the editors — personally ha\e 
come to the conclusion whereas no one ever reads a 
foreword, we deem it an unnecessary e\'il. Therefor 
Ladies and Gentlemen, we the editors personally have 
decided not to write a foreword. WE THANK YOU.

The Spirit of 1926 

Showing how she is constrained by 

G. A. McG. 
N.B. — Mr. Lardner please excuse. 

Dere Pal ; 

Well Pal you will be surprised O. K. to here 
I finished school last wk. & i guess you are think- 
ing i will be getting the swelt hed on acc't of i was 
graduated. But if you think that Pal well you 
will be 100 mi. offn the track, becus i aint the 
kind that get the swelt hed over graduatin like 

some of are frends are over gettin graduated — •■„ Cockide Stiff"

But anyhow i did see one thing which e\en if i aint got no swelt hed. 

Well Pal i come down to the college last winter and when i got there i seen

you knowed it was free before you ast me & sure enuf it was free al right only i 
hadnt knowed it before only i guess that Nova knows that when i say a thing 
it is generaly O. K. Well Maw Rill Hall was packed jam full of people & we 
couldnt see nothink becus they was a cockide stiff standing right in front of us 
yelling no sope no sope at the top of his \oice & Nova says well why dont you 
use sandpaper or a file and for gawds sake get outen my way. & he turns to 
her and says madamm do you want cheating and she says no but in about 
1 minnit my frend will paste you 1 in the cheaters & just then i herd an awfull 
racket up frunt & i says to Nova move up frunt & she says why & i says becus

And i says McGlone's Irish and she says o is he and if somebody was to 
lable a bottle of hairtonic Gordon Jin you would say that aint no gin either & 
i would love to been you one rite now & well Pal thats the way it goes. 




The Passing of the Mess-Hall 

T last with a deep sigh of contentment we can attend 
Prof. "Bunt" Watkins' Public Speaking Class 
without enduring short, shaky dissertations dehvered 
in tones fit for rendering "Curfew Shall Not Ring 

Tonight," on that moth eaten old topic: "Need For A New 


Believe it or not, Mister, but it is here and everyone re- 
joiceth in loud and tumultuous tones. We fear though, that 
when the day arrives for the departure of our present University 
Common, a tear will be noticed in each eye, and a sigh will be 
emitted from each mug, because we will be losing a friend dear 
to our hearts but not our stomachs. Our stomachs were always 
complaining. The marksmen will have to find new fields in which 
to indulge their chosen vocation, for when we enter the new 
epicurean temple, the olive tossing, champions, and the spud 
throwing cowboys will feel out of place with clean cloths and 
plates and food without roaches and worms. 

Alas the old mess shanty passes and becomes but a myth 
though its glory smells to high heaven forever.
