Y greetings to the class of 1920 ami its friends! Your training this year 
and next is no more significant tlian tliat of a few years ago but it seems 
so : it is more apparent and you are more aware of it. Y^ou are securing 
that training at the old Cornell. 

Cornell has a peculiar place and distinct mission. First, it is a Col- 
lege, in the division of labor l)et\veen Colleges and Universities, the 
former aim for breadth, for the fundamentals, and the latter strive for 
focus, for the specialties. Complementary, each necessary to th.e other, the Uni- 
versity with technical efficiency and skill and professional or graduate preparation 
for the vocation ui)[)crmost, atmospheres constantly with materialism, worthy, proi^ei- 
and necessary; tlie College, in no way uirfitting but in a most essential manner pre- 
paring for such training, atmospheres a man constantly with idealism aiul thereby 
saves the world — including the Universities. 

Colleges are charged then with ci'eating, propagating and maintaining personal 
and national ideals as their peculiar service. Furnishing the teachers, or teachers of 
teachers, for the High and I^nblic Schools, and furnishing the leading scholars for the 
professional and technical institutions, they are privileged to snrcharge our wliole 
national life Avith their cardinal juinciples and ideals. 

Cornell has not failed in this duty. By her fruits she is known and by those 
alone she must stand or fall. Her graduates and non-graduates have met heroically, 
nobly, successfully the demands of peace and war. The service flag of ])eace has 
been as large and closely filled as has the service ilag of war. Service is Cornell's 
synonym ; leadership in service has been her pride and joy. 

Y'our training is of tremendous significance for you face mighty issues and 
titanic struggles. Materialism apparently ousted by the iilealism which finally 
forced us into the war, has been sinking its talons deep into the national soul. Caji 
we shake it off? 

Eeconstruction will find us markedly better or worse. If we cannot translate 
ami transmute the idealism of the war's causes, the idealism which welded us into 
nationality, into the recoiistruction terms and peace conditions, materialism will 
return se\enfold upon us, and we will have missed the Pentecost of our Calamity. 

Y'^ou are called to a higher and more inclusive ideal — the service of mankind. 
Y'our horizons have been extended; the field of service is no longer delimited; it is 
no longer btnuided on the north, south, east and west. Y^ou are ser\'ants of civiliza- 
tion, not of a mere kultur ; Professor La Horre of Louvain distinguishes the latter 
as national and the former as international. For the new era, ushered in by the 
bombs and bayonets, shells and gas of the world's worst war, you are summoned to 
a keener insight and understanding, to broader and deeper foundations, and to a 
wider knowledge and sympathy than any who have ])receded. Yon nmst be more to 
do as much ; you must know more to be as learned. 

So the war and reconstruction challenge you! Cornell believes in you! Cor- 
nell stakes her reputation on you !

UCH has been said, and no doubt much more will be said, about the success or 
failure of the Student Army Trainiiiii Corps. Those familiar with units in those 
schools which were big enough in spirit, loyalty, and patriotism, to have grasped 
at the outset the important idea behind the whole movement will have little but 
words of praise for it : those fortunate who were connected witli schools, 
the heads of which were unable, in this emergency faced by our Country, to give 
up for the time being at least the exercise of their customary, and at times, 
despotic power, in order to make the movement a success will have naught but ill to speak 
of it. Owing to the serious epidemic of Spanish Influenza that came with its initial or- 
ganization, seriously disrupting the work, along with the circumstance that it was an in- 
novation requiring students to study under conditions wholly different from anything 
they liad been accustomed to, together further with the fact tliat the plan was in operation 
but such a short time, a fair trial of the system was not secured. 

Considering the obstacles met and overcome, the S. A. T. C. at Cornell College was a 
success, and had the plan continued for the remainder of the school year, it would liave 
accomplished its mission in a manner that would have been completely satisfactory not 
only to the War r>epartment. but to student and College. 

The student who performed his duty as a member of the S. A. T C. performed his 
duty as a soldier for his Government, and more cannot be said of any soldier than that 
he performed his duty. Had the war continued for anotlier year, the Government would 
have needed thousands of additional officers, and the War Department realizing the ad- 
axrtages of a College or University education in tlie development of tliat self reliance 
and initiative so necessary to make a successful army officer, determined tliat tlie young 
men of College and University standing, could better serve their Government by carrying 
on their scholastic work preparatory to entering an officers" training school ; the plan was 
so worked out that every member of the S. A. T. C. witli a few exceptions in technical 
lines, would have been in active service before the completion of the school .vear, a body 
of them going out each three months. In time of need, all citizens are equally under obli- 
gations to discharge the responsibilities of citizenship, and in the discharge of those duties, 
it is incumbent upon them to serve wherever the Government feels they can be of great- 
est service. All would have preferred the glory of actual combat. an(' to those who were 
not permitted to meet the enemy face to face, the performance of their duty was the most 

In conclusion. I want to say a word personally about Cornell Collrge. I came here in 
September of last year, before College opened, and I am frank to admit that my first im- 
pressions were not the most favorable; but with the opening of the College, my feelings 
underwent a decided change, and today there is perhaps a no more ardent Cornell booster 
than myself ; next to my own Alma Mater, comes Cornell. Cornell students have every 
right to feel proud of their College: and Cornell College has every right to feel proud of 
its student body. I am glad that I have served with and for you, and I predict for this 
school a future large and glorious, one even greater in its service and success than any 
of us dream of at present. The future will be an age of service more than anything else, 
and in this age, Cornell promises to take its place toward the top of the list.

EXSHUN !" "Kifiht DiVfss !" "Get a line !'' •■Siiai) it up.'" •'Suck in vdiii- tank !" 
Wliafs Jill tliis jai-iidnV The answer is; simple — it's the Cornell College 
S. A. T. C. giiinii thni their daily military contortion. 

The Cornell unit was organized on October 1st. 1!)1S, under the direction of 
("apt. Walter L. Tooze, Jr. When the Captain arrived in Mt. Vernon he had no 
f<irms or organization to work with. He went directly to the Chicago Zone 
Supply Olficei-. secui'ed his material and was back on the ground with every de- 
tail organized to go "over the top" on schedule. The "zero hour'" — Octol>er 1st. found 250 
college boys taking the oath of allegiance to Uncle Sam, fired with the enthusiasm of the 
supposed bloody future before them and ready for any fate tluit might l)efall them. The 
first adventure befell them at once. It was mess — the first of a long succession of the best 
stuff Uncle Sam ever fed a rookie. The memories of it — (Jh Boy ! 

Captain Tooze made an ideal Comnumding Officer. He was thorough. (|uick to act 
and to accomplish. His strict discipline and manly qualities asserted themselves in the 
impartial manner in which he conducted his cantonment. He knew just what to expect of 
a man and usually achieved it. One thing outstandijig concerning ('apt. Tooze which i:i 
truly remarkal)le is the harmony and co-operation that existed between himself and the 
college authorities. 

1st I. lent. Charles H. Obye was appointed Senior Military Instructor, which capacity 
he tilled until 1st Lieut. William Saunders was transferred to this unit from Camp Dodge. 
Enough cannot be said in telling of the marvelous things which these men accomplished 
(n such a short time, (^ne needs only to point to the bunch of green "awkwards"' on 
October 1st and then turn to the men departing on December 15th — every man worthy to 
be called a soldier of the U. S. A. Both officers had personalities that would bring the 
best results from men in a short time. We will not soon forget Obye's knock-out sarcasm, 
and Saunders" "Don" Move !" 

We did not see much of Lieut. Fulton on the drill held, for his duties as Adjutant 
kept him busy with the company papers. We can thank him for the promptness in getting 
the various papers to lieadiiuarters on time and getting the pay-rolls back so quickly. 
Lieut. Mershon was the leader <if the 4th Platoon, and he sure was all for us. Whenever 
he took the men to the gym for a workout he was a "good scout"' as well as a "Lieu.v." 
Lieut. Lewis, an expert marksman. was not able to teach us his fine art of shooting. A 
site had been selected near the Palisades for a range, but just then the Armistice spoiled 
all the fun. Capt. Hunter of the Medical Department deserves much credit for his work. 
He has handled more than six thousand cases in the army without the loss of a single 
life. At one time one-third of the company was on the sick list on account of the "Flu," 
but he brot us all thru safe and sound. "Xuf scd."" 

Every man of us stands by every officer and every private in the com])any. There 
has been a liond of fellowship between us that we can never forget. The barracks and 
Infirmary are enipt.v, the (juarantines and limits of the caminis are forgotten, and the 
"Hwuu, two. three, hfour"" is silent. The unpleasant memory of inconveniences will slip 
away — but never that old pull of the real fellowship.

To the OtTicers and Men of (.'ornell Codeiie S. A. T. ('.: 

It is with dee]) regret that District Headquarters sees the deniohilization nf these 
units which, had the war continued, were destined to become such important factors 
in the future of tlie American army. We feel a particuhir interest in Cornell Col- 
lege for the reason that the harmony and co-operation existing there has been most 
noticeable and has reduced the work of headquarters to a minimum so far as siiper- 
visidu was concerned. 

The writer personally had occasion to visit your unit, and was much impressed 
with the morale and military courtesy and discipline exhibited by the men. This 
speaks well both for the officers and men, individually aiul collectively. Vou have 
been soldiei's in the service of the Ignited States: you have done your duty a> sii!-

HE poets argue that iiothiDg is worth wliile unless it lias the presence of woman 
to sanction it, and her personality to inspire and elevate it. Certainly these 
poetic flights of fancy must hold true in regard to the feminine supporters of the 
Cornell S. A. T. C. How much their splendid cooperation contributed to the suc- 
cess of the Cornell student-soldier army can never be definitely ascertained, but 
it is certain that their influence was one of the most potent factors in creating 
and maintaining the morale of the organization. 

From the very first they showed how completely they were with their soldier comrades 
in spirit. The occasional dates so easily snatched on the campus at odd intervals were 
some of the few bright spots in the rookies' first monotonous days of quarantiue. Soon 
the "Flu" epidemic made its insignificant but nevertheless indefinitely prolonged attack. 
Here the girls displayed their kindred spirit by voluntarily afflicting themselves with the 
same spraying mixture meted out to the men. Some of the most loyal ones even went so 
far as to contract symi)atlietic eases of the despised disease. 

Then came the mutual rejoicing when quarantine restrictions were eventually lifted, 
and infatuated couples during the few sweet hours of liberty could again wander at random 
on moonlit evenings, far beyond the irksome restraints of the all too popular and populous 
campus. When on a Sunday evening the rank and file of the company were confined to the 
interior of the library for purposes of intellectual improvement, the rookies will never 
forget how soothingly the gentle strains of female voices dispelled their army cares. The 
courageous condiict of these gentle serenaders cannot be lauded too highly : not a single 
private in the battalion would have dared to risk the wrath of his superiors by such a 
breach of discipline as these undaunted singers so daringly perpetrated. On public occa- 
sions likewise the fair co-eds exercised their vocal talents in demonstration of their 
sympathetic spirit. Not a single instance can be cited where they did not unanimously 
and enthusiastically respond to the marching songs and rollicking campaign lyrics so 
vociferously harmonized by the khaki section at chapel assemblages. 

But the occupants of the seats in the gallery of the chapel auditorium were not con- 
tent merely to accompany the soldiers in their more joyous moods and leisure moments. 
The staunch band of co-eds were determined to share in the more rigorous, stern realities 
of the actual training and daily routine. They demanded a cadet company of the fairer 
sex. and under the command of Captain Tooze, Lieutenant Obye. or any other officer who 
could free himself from encumbering duties at their drill hour, they proceeded to master 
the intricate details of the Infantry Drill Regulations. So rapid was their progress and 
so efficient their organization that their fame spread over the entire state, and they be- 
came noted as the Cornell Battalion of Death. 

Here's to you, girls ! You have proven yourselves true comrades.

HEN a certain hopeful and promising 
aggregation of prospective college 
leaders, namely the class of 1920, erup- 
ted upon the campus, it found Cornell 
the peaceful, academic asylum of 
youth, characteristic of the good old 
days before the war. Those were the days 
when the tug of war was an event — one in 
which the class of 1920 was gloriously trium- 
jihant — when interclass athletics were of tre- 
mendous importance, and when society ban- 
quets were still in existence. Then one could 
eat bread and sugar at Bowman Hall and Her- 
shey bars cost but five cents ! Yes, and Cornell 
beat Coe in that year. 

The roars of the great conflict were scarce- 
ly audible ir. Cornell's scholaristic seclusion, 
and were actually forgotten when the school 
was gripped in the throes of the scarlet fever 
epidemic. In the spring of that year, war, like 
a mad locomotive, crashed into the peaceful 
college life and shattered it into dazed frag- 
T]B ^ ments. The class of 1920 entered their Sopho- 

^ ■ more year with many men gone from their 

ranks, as also from the ranks of the other 
classes, while the remainder tried to hold to- 
gether college life. Through the changed and 
trying circumstances of a college career under 
these conditions, the class of '20 pursued its 
capal:)le way with uncomplaining efficiency. Itkept Cornell intact. 

And now that peace has come again, the Junior class takes up the task of 
restoring all things to normal. It has the right and privilege, as well as the 
ability, to reconstruct college life, from the war-time to peace basis. Having 
been here both before and during the transition period, it is best fitted to unite 
the new elements with the old, and pass on to the two oncoming classes the 
modified customs and standards of old Cornell. And the fact that Cornell has 
profited by this chaotic and bewildering martial experience, rather than suf- 
fered by it, is largely due to the integrity of the Junior class, who "saw it

EKOKE the foniiing of the "C" Club, the athletic uien of Cornell had no 
organization which would spur them on to uphold the honor of the school 
and attain the highest efficiency in athletics. 

Cornell, in the last few years has made great strides in athletic activ- 
ities and one of the movements which marked progress was the organizing 
of the "C" Club. Membership in tliis club is limited to those athletes who 
have won a "C" in any one of the four major sports. The "C" men. as 
they are called, meet the high scliool students who come here to compete in inter- 
scholastic track meets and basketball tournaments. They extend to these men a hand 
ot friendship, and impress on them the spii'it of clean sportsmanship which is of 
the highest order at Cornell. 

In spite of the disorganizing eifect of the war on liigh scliuols and colleges, the 
"C" Club, with the loyal support of the student l)ody and members of the faculty, 
carried to a success the second high school baski'tball tournament. One hundred 
seventy men, representing seventeen schools I'esponded to our invitation to compete 
for the three Silver Loving Cups offered as prizes. The students of Cornell College, 
in their reception and entertainment of these guests again upheld the ti'aditions of 
the old scliool for hospitality. The expression of appi-eciation given l)y these visit- 
ors bespoke their gratitude, — and leads us to hope that many will be attracted here 
for college training. 

The "C" Club banquet is one of tlie social events of the yeai', and for a lady to 
be invited by one of these hei'oes. who has fought many a battle to a victory, or even 
a defeat, is an honor second to none in Corui'll ciivlcs. 

Xot only have the Cornell men proved their (ighiing spirit on the athletic field, 
but also in the training camp and on the battle fields of Fi'ance. Tlic ••(''■ Club is 
greatly honored by having as members such magnificent men who have eidisted in 
the great war, several of whom paid the supreme sacritice on the Altar of Democracy. 
Such men as these places this Club on a solid foundation where its influence will give 
the "C" men of future years a feelhig of I'esijonsilulity and an appreciation of clean 
sportsmanship which will )jc ]»romincnt in all of their \ari('(l acliviiies.

OOKIXG back on the football season just past and considering the turbulent 
events of the \var that were taking place in our national affairs just at this 
time we can gladly say that we are justly proud of the men that repre- 
sented Cornell on the gridiron. We are proud of the football men who 
chose to serve our country at home and abroad and in serving it they glori- 
fied Cornell and her spirit, by proving their worth and her pride in them. 
The beginning of the season found Cornell with just one veteran, but a 
good one and we were thankful for that. Several of the last year's Freshmen who 
reported for practice made good and the new coming S. A. T. C. material, all first 
year men, had a sprinkling of good men. From the start we found all college ac- 
tivities, especially athletics, sacrificed for the greater cause, more so than in some 
sister colleges, and we found our men battling against odds in the majority of our 

The opening game with Iowa was played in a wet, slop])y field; our men, greatly 
outweighed, battled like veterans. Sanderson and Gowans at tackles working with 
new guards and midget ends, proved their worth. Hennen, a Freshman, playing 
center, did wonderful defensive work. 

With one game gone and experience gained, our yearlings met Coe at Cedar 
Rapids October 28th, and played them to a tie. With a veteran backfield and equally 
experienced line, Coe was unable to score. The game showed a marked iuiprovenient 
in our backfield. 

In the Great Lakes game our men met men of experience, some of them 
of national reputation. Outweighed by at least twenty pounds to the man, opposed 
by giants, our ends and backfield midgets gritted their teeth and went to it. You 
Cornellians, old and new, if you were on the sidelines watching that game you would 
have felt proud. Just think ! Those Jackies, some ten thousand of them from all 
over the states, wound up by yelling for Cornell. "You have got a gritty team" was 
said time and time again. 

Augustana played at Mount Vernon with a well balanced team, and defeated 
Cornell the last few minutes of the game. 

The second Coe game, played at Mount Vernon, proved to be a comedy of er- 
rors. Three days before the game Cornell sent eight of her best men to Camp Pike 
and Camp Grant. The absence of Hennen, Gowans, Hedges, Johnson, Curtis, and 
Collard of the regulars, handed an easy victory to Coe. 

But realizing that the weakness of the team was because of her national loyalty, 
Cornell refuses to feel disappointed in the 1918 season.

^J^M The season opened with four old uien reporting for practice, Sanderson, 

Byerly, Hedges and Kidder. Hnrlburt, star forward of last year's Frosh 
team was also out for the first call for candidates. Within a tew weeks 
Kepler returned from an officers' training camp and at once got into action. 
Captain Lemon finally received his H. D. from the Great Lakes and then 
last year's prospects were all back but Hoadley. 

The Basketball season of 1918-19 can be considered a success — winning 7' games 
and losing 5. One of these by a one point margin. The first game was with the 
Officers' team of Camp Dodge — Cornell being victorious by a 26-16 count. The 
following week Des Moines was beaten 23-8, and Coe slipped a 26-25 defeat to Blue 
and Gray. 

The following week-end the team journeyed to Cedar Falls and Dubuque, tak- 
ing both games, the first from the State Teachers' 25-23 and from Dubuque 23-17. 
It was the Dubuque game that put Byerly out for the season with a bad knee. 

The following week saw Grinnell succumb to a 31-16 tally, Imt a jinx seemed to 
then strike, for three games were lost in quick succession — Simpson 37-19, Did^uque 
22-17, and Iowa 23-6. To offset such disheartening circumstances, the team over- 
came Simpson 26-21 and tromeling Grinnell came back with a 40-15 scalp under 
their belt. 

The last game — in Coe Gym — with 300- Cornellian rooters present, the Coeites 
pushed a 29-23 defeat onto Cornell. This gave Coe a call for the State Champion- 
ship and Cornell third or fourth place. 

With the exception of Byerly the men came through the season in fine shape, 
although Kidder played in the Coe game with a very bad ankle. Of the varsity 
material for next year are Milholin, Ensign, Browning, Hogie, and Sones. Of the 
old men, Byerly and Lemon are lost by graduation, and with Sanderson, Kepler, 
Kidder, Hurlburt and Hedges left Coach Doseff bids fair to have a Conference 
championship team for 1919-20.

X lit] 7', Cornell took the state championship in baseball. In 1918 she lost 
seven out of a possible eight games. From a point of victories, last year's 
baseball season was a dismal failure; from a patriotic standpoint, it was a 
war-time success and as such we can be dul}^ proud. Seemingly uiitimely 
enlistments left the Cornell nine hopelessly crippled at the very outset of a 
hard season. 

When Sherm Finger sounded "First Call" for the 1918 baseball season, 
nineteen men turned out for formation. Thirteen of these were rookies. The 
other six, who had seen service, were Captain Cot Etter, Skin Grigsby, Jum Hoadley, 
Scoop Hedges, Stub Hartwell, and EoUin Baird. It was hardly expected that Stub 
would appear in spring sports on account of the ankle which he hurt during foot- 
ball season but military necessity demanded his presence before the season had pro- 
ceeded far. 

None of the veterans who responded to that first roll call had aspirations for 
honors in the mound position or behind the bat. Various and sundry Freshman 
batteries appeared on the scene but none seemed to quite fill the need. ISTone of 
them seemed to measure to the Byerly-Hughes combination of the previous year, 
nor was any such battery found during the season. It finally resulted in the brunt 
of the pitching falling on Lemon Avho was finally drafted into the game. Jimmie 
Ballz worked out behind the bat, while Ditto and Less Moore assisted with the pill- 

The season was formally opened at Iowa on the tenth of April. It was here 
that the first disaster came. It was 17 to 2. Jum Hoadley pounded out a homer 
in the seventh, which was the surprise of the game. 

Paffe Ninety-three 

The first liame on the home pasture was also with Iowa, the next week. The 
final loss was G to 3. 

On the eighteenth, I)uhu(|ue took us on, 17 to 5. 

A week later, the twenty-fifth, we went up to Cedar Rapids to see Coe. We 
were in a terrihle condition. Cot and Jmn had enlisted in the tank service, and 
Baird was on the Ijench. As a result Chambers, Sanderson, and Hart well went into 
the game. The team seemed to take a ucav lease on life in spite of their misfor- 
tunes, and came out on top in an extra inning. 11 to 10. 

The next game was with Ames on April 27. and went their way 8 to 2. The first 
five sessions at bat went to 0. 

On the fourth of May. Coe was avenged for her former defeat — tunc 10 to 7. 
CornelFs hits were scattered and all came at the wrong tiuie. 

On the tenth we dropped one of the closest games of the season to Ames by a 
score of 4 to 2. 

The last game of the season was a third one with Coe and was sti'ged at Cedar 
Rapids. It went to the up-river boys 11 to 4. 

Thus the season ended : one victory, seven defeats : 36 runs for the home team 
against 83 for the opponents.

The 1918 Track Season 

("apt. S.mith 

The track season of 191S began with but three veterans in the line-iip. They were 
Torrance and K. Smith for the distance runs and Hehner for the hii^li .lump." How- 
ever, under Sherm"s coaching a good track team com]iosed mostly of Freshmen, was de- 
veloped in time for the Iowa meet. On April 14th Iowa brought one of the Viest teams she 
has had in years, defeating Sherm's men 95 to 41. K. C. Smith won the half mile. Hurl- 
burt led in the tiuarter for 400 yards, but lost. Lemon placed second in the high hurdles 
and third in the low hurdles. In the field events Sanderson took the shot put, heaving 
the pill 43 feet 9 inches and also took third place in the discuss. 

The next event was the Drake Relays. Cornell sent a team composed of Torrance, 
K. C. Smith, Browning and Hurlburt. They copped second place for the sixth time in as 
many years. 

Next came the animal home meet with its usual contriliution of dark horses from all 
four classes. K. C. Smith had just left for the Army, leaving a place hard to fill. The 
Freshmen showed real vinegar by walking olT with 91 points, leaving only 68 for the 
other three classes. The Juniors insisted on having second place, while the Seniors and 
Sophs tied for third. 0"Neil pulled down individual honors, scoring 25 points. 

' 1? Conference meet (irinnell won first with 61 points, Cornell second with 38 and 
Co^ ^iird with 36. O'Neil again showed up well, winning 14 points, placing second for in- 
dividual honors. He won first in the shot-put and discuss, second in the high .jump and 
fourth in the high hurdles. De la Rue came in third in the 100 yard dash. Torrance first 
in the mile, Browning second in the half mile and Hurlburt fourth in the 440. 

No team was entered in the State meet, because the men being mostly Freshmen, were 

The last event of the season and the most successful was the Coe Dual meet at Cedar 
Rapids on Saturday. May 25th. Going contrary to all predictions. Cornell Won easily 
89 to 38. taking eleven firsts while Coe succeeded in placing more than one man in only 
one event. Peisen of Cornell won individnal honors, capturing three firsts and one second, 
totaling 18 points. He was first in the 100 and 220 yard dashes, first in the broad jump 
and second in the discus. 

Frentress of Coe was second as individual point winner with 11 points to his credit. 

Browning won the mile and half mile, running two iiretty races. Hehner won the 
higli hurdles and high jump. Burch the two mile race, and Sanderson the shot-put. O'Neil 
got first in the discus, Hurlburt second in the 440 with Dee coming in for third. De la Rue 
took third place in both dashes, Lawrence second in the low hurdles, and .Tolinson second 
in the pole vault, reaching 10 feet.

Last November when ^lacLeod left her work at Cornell as head of the 

Women's Physical Training Department, to enter war service, the girls enrolled in 
gymnasium classes were sadly disappointed. ?ler strong personality and wholesome 
influence were inspirations to them, incentives to be at tlieir best. 

A competent successor was found in ^liss Hutchinson, who cjuickly won her 
way in the hearts of the hundred and odd girls in the department, partly because 
of her winning i)ersonality. })artly l)ecause oi' her lUKU'uiable pi-olieiency in the work.

Women's Athletic Association 

Two years ago last fall the Cornell Women's Athletic Association sprang into 
being. It was organized to keep alive the enthusiastic spirit then being shown in 
Women's Athletics. Membership is reserved for wearers of the "C's," these being 
presented by the association in recognition of unusual ability in the physical train- 
ing department. Athletic rules as well as awards are made by the body. 

Every girl who plays on the courts, every girl who points her toe, every girl 
who receives skinned elbows on the basketball floor, every girl who chases across the 
field gritting her teeth as she swings the hockey stick — every single one of these 
hitches her wagon to a "C,'' and aspiring such, works faithfully and happily at 
these activities.

The 1918 Basketball Season 

An abundance of good material turned out for basketball in the Fall, so there 
was strong competition for positions on the class teams. With two exceptions, the 
old Junior team came back to uphold their honors as Seniors. This thev did in their 
first game by giving the Juniors a trouncing to the time of ."i'^-lo. 

The Sophomore-Freshman game M'as a real scrap, ending in a 10-8 defeat for

The Y. W. C. A. 

"Eacli for all, and all for each," has been the motto of the Cornell V. ^\'. (". A. 
for the last year. Eacli girl has felt that she is not only a ]iart of the local organ- 
ization, bnt of the international Y. W. C. A. Xot only have the association Bihle 
classes presented the call of the present world task, bnt there have been an unusually 
large ni;niber of joint meetings with the Y. M. C. A., at which representatives of 
the Centenary Movement spoke. Most important of all, in broadening the horizon 
of every student, was the Centenary Convention held here, at which there were 
delegates from the Methodist colleges of four states, Xehraska, South Dakota, 
Minnesota, and Iowa. Thus, as the need of each country was more clearlv under- 
stood, the heart of each girl has reached out to France and Bi'lgium, to India and 

But the Cornell girl has not only been thinking of future servit-e in foreign 
countries. She has organized successful Kiglit Weeks Clubs; she has gone to 
neighboring villages to share with -the High School girls there the insjiiration which 
has conu' to her; she lias atteiuled tbc class organized for the study of tbe probleuis 
of the social worker. She has learned that service l>egins here and now.

The Y. M. C. A. 

The Y. M. C. A. as a college institution was not conspicuous as such during 
the first term of the present school year. The S. A. T. C. organization, which be- 
numbed numerous regular college activities, was destructive to the work which 
the Y. M. ordinarily undertakes at that time. Being at it was a branch of the 
military service, it was administered by Secretary Harold A. Smith, who came here 
from Camp Dodge. He furnished the men the necessary entertainment, established 
the movies in the chapel, provided the pamphlets furnishd by the Army Y. M. C. A., 
and stood by the men in every way. An evidence of his good work is the fact that 
the college deemed him necessary and retained him after the S. A. T. C. was 

The second term opened with a gradually increasing number of the old men 
returning. The Cabinet had been elected and early in the term the appointive 
offices were filled. Plans were at once made to "carry on" in the same manner as 
in former years. However, it was realized that the Y. M. must present a religious 
program that was more real, more vital, and more genuine than had ever been at- 
tempted before. 

The regular Thursday night and the Sunday morning discussion groups have 
been struggling to re-define and revitalize the type of Christianity the men live. 

It was the earnest desire of those most interested in the Y. M. to have everv 
man a member, and to give that member the advantages of group discussion, that 
his vision might be broadened, that there might be a life purpose established, that 
the same Christ spirit which is striving to exist between nations would exist on 
Cornell's campus.

The Pep Club 

The Pep Club since it first originated in tlic Fall of has been the chief 

upholder of the true spirit that works for the best interests of Cornell. Always 
working- under high pressure the Pep Club found it necessary to apply double pres- 
sure this Fall and fill the places made vacant by war demands. The Club with 
ranks filled once more and with the wholesome optimism and downright hard work 
adequately fulfilled the needs of the football season by arranging mass meetings. 

The return of the old members found the Pep Club full of the old time pep- 
per as was amply shown by the New Year's Stunts which buried the tragedies of 
the old year ancl propiiesied great things for the future by the marriagi' of Miss 
Loyal Cornellian to Mr. Would-Be-Successful New Year. 

The advent of the Student Council made the Pep Club a thing of the past. 
At all times ready and willing to take u]) the suggestions offered to aid every ))ub- 
lic benefit, and realizing the greater possibilities in the Student Council, the Peji 
Club gladly made the supreme sacrifice and boosted for the Sttuleiit Council. The 
Club celebrated the dishandment in an altogether fitting and in'opcr way bv a ban- 
quet at the Montrose and box seats at the Majestic-. 

The Pep Club will always be rcmcuibrrcd as the gencratdr of the I'ep which 
brought into action tiie Coi-uell spirit — always working Inr a greater Cornell. 


PiUlf On,- Iliiiuln-J-fifty-t'iiir 

The W. S. G. A., organized two years ago under tlie name of the Women's 
League, lias progressed notably this year. Every girl is a member, not only in fact, 
but also in spirit. This spirit, which is that of the honor system represented by this 
organization, has pervaded every corner of the campus, relieving the faculty of a 
great deal of worry. 

The big all-school Hallowe'en Party, held in the gymnasium, was the work of 
the W. 8. G. A. In co-operation with the Y. M. C. A., they put on the Season's 
party. On account of the late opening of school, tlie annual Pal picnic for all the 
girls was postponed until spring. In tlie spring, too, comes the annual Girls" Grex. 

Besides these festivities, the Association has been busy with matters of gov- 
ernment. Bowman Hall is combined with the town districts for the first time this 
year, and is governed by the same body. This system insures justice for all and 
will prove a permanent part of the organization. 

The ^Y. S. G. A. is known outside of Cornell circles. It has applied for mem- 
bership in the Mid-Western Intercollegiate Association for Women's Self Govern- 
ment. The president of our association was a guest at the annual meeting of the 
Intercollegiate Association last year.

Student Life 

There has never been a year in the history of the Royal Purpel publication 
when so many obstacles have opposed the Annual. The absence of Cornell's best 
men, the al)rupt interriiption of the S. A. T. C, the abnormal prices charged for 
material, the unrest and insecurity of every college organization — all have con- 
spired to make the task next to insurmountable. 

The Staff has been on the job from morning until night every day. It is due 
chiefly to their concentration and consistency, even at the sacrifice of their own 
interests that the 1920 Royal Purple has been made possible. 

We wish to place the credit where it is due, and want to express our apprecia- 
tion for their effective co-operation.

and after due consideration proceeded to form thenisclvcs into sncli a cluli. elect officers 
and ajijioint a constitution committee. 

The first rci^iilar meetini; of the cluh was held I''ebruary 11. with an address by Dr. 
Flint as a "curtain raiser." The club meets bi-monthly and considers t'iin?;s of an in- 
ternational interest. Its motto is "World ("itizenship. ' A lively interest has been shown 
in the club. It now has a nuMnbership of over sixty I' the followiui: thii-teeu

The idea of a Cosmopolitan Club was oriirinated in the I'nixcrsity of Wisconsin about 
sixteen years a.iro when tlu> forei.iiu students at that universit.\' formed such a club. The 
idea spread to othei- colle.ires until it is now nation-wide, and has sent a representative

The Student Council 


For years Cornell has felt the need of an organization. whciUy representative of the 
student body, which might more closely unite the students, voice tlieir opinions in the in- 
terests of the school, and help promote that old traditional Cornell spirit. It was to meet 
tliis need that tlie "Cornell Student Body" was created. 

Four officers and sixteen Council Members were elected March 8. 191!). witli Rollin 
Baird as President. In order to insure the election of more competent and mature leaders, 
membership in the Council was taken oidy from the Junior and Senior classes — they being 
better acquainted with botli tlie problems and traditions of tlie college tlian the Sophomore 
and Freshman classes. Tlie Junior members will continue to hold office in the next 
school year. 

The duties of this Student Body though not yet clearly detined, shall be as varied as 
are the interests in the school — touching upon athletics, debating, religion and vocational 
conferences, in addition to the less favorable duty of exercising self-government. 

It may even be possible that a friendly relationshii) with Coe he establislied in the dim 
and distant future tlirough tliis group. The Student Council which achieves this desirable 
end may rightly feel rewarded for its efforts, and .lustified in its existence by the accom- 
plishment of this one thing. 

Although the Council is just organized, the momentum already attained will bear wit- 
ness to the success of this organization. The favor with which it has met, both in the 
eyes of the students and the faculty, and the enthusiasm of its members present every hope 
of it filling a large place in the future Cornell.

What a College Prof. Said About a Melon 

'Twas in the autunin of 1!I1S. The air was becoming- terse with the eoming of 
winter. The roads over the coiiiilry were in the very best of condition, and bicycles 
I were much in common. 

J The evening which the writer has in mind was bahny, and the air was tinged 

' with the desire to do some foul, underminded wrong. A Professor residing within 

I the city limits of Mt. Vernon, decided that he would risk his life and fortune in try- 

j ing to commit some of tlie aforesaid deeds. Wliereupon he left the (luietude of Mt. 

! Vernon, and sought refuge in the open country air to relieve liis pent-up feeling or 

doing something rash and mean. 

A watermehin patch was along the roadside. A farm house stood a few rods 
( in tlie distance. Shall I take from tlie patch or shall I take from the farmhouse 

' which stands a few rods in the distance y The latter method seemed to strike the 

fancy of this college Professor so he ventured to the house, saw the biggest inrlon. 
took the biggest melon, and departed. 

A few minutes passed. The Professor was going down the road on his bicycle. 
The farmer who resided in the farndiouse saw the Professor leave his yard with a 
melon.- The farmer hastened after the Professor. The farmer overtook the Pro- 
I fessor. Words were exchanged. The Professor who had been riding the bicycle 

was very much embarrassed, and said that he could not be placed under arrest be- 
cause he was a Professor in Cornell College. The farmer was very angry and de- 
manded the college Professor should say something. Whereupon the Professor who 
had been riding the bicycle, and who had seen the melon ])atch by he road-side, and 
who had seeii the farmhouse and the melons in the yard, and who had ventured into 
the farm-yard and had picked up a melon said — sed — sedately, paid the farmer $"^.T5, 
I that he had received from teaching the young mvu of Cornell College, that thev 

should taste not, handle not, nor toiich not.

"Walla ! Walla ! The Monster-Menagerie — the magnificent, dazzling, spec-

exhibits tlie onhj living specimen in captivity — every species captured at monstrous 
loss of life and expenditure of effort in the impenetrable jungles of the campus. Be-

Xow here Ave are, most favored Ladies 
and fortunate Gentlemen at the first of the 
unbelievable inentalitv-reeling" exhibits. Your 
eyes are even at this moment bulging forward 
to meet the insurmountable, unattainable 
over-topping Byerly species. 'Phis specimen 
is a distant descendant from a brancli of the 
giraff family. Even so one would never 
guess this relation to the giraff from tlie fe- 
male type you see before you. 

\\\' pass now, dear general ])ublic, to the 
next victim of amazement. Tliis specie's is 
chaiacterized chiefly by the wildness of the 
female in contrast to the male. It cost the 
terrific sacrifice of the l)udding youthful lives 
of three staunch, heroic nuirtyrs to ensnare 
and fina'dy capture her for this exhibit. Af- 
t;'r she was captured and carried ott'. how- 
ever, it was all very simple — the male fol- 
lowed devotedly by her side. 

Arriving upon this sacred and inviolable 
position of intelligent and strategic observa- 
tion, gentle pursuer of knowledge, we sto]) 
with a])preciative interest. This is the well 
known and justlv fauu)us C'hassell. This 
species is noted for its delight in seclusive- 
nes'^ far from the haunts of civilized man. 
These aninutis are often found marooiu'd at 
the Clilf ffouse with no boat after in ::?() at 
night. Let us ])ass on ipiickly. for you see

And now turning to tlie left and scrutin- 
izing our glance in an "out-drop" around that 
huge tent-pole, let me inveigle you to cogitate 
upon this pin-headed (I mean Needle- 
lieaded) Lahman specie. This is veritahly a 
liandsome speciment, very mild, even-tem- 
pered and ossimistic. The female has a con- 
tinuous battle with others to keep possession 
of her true mate. 

And now our optics protrude in wide hor- 
ror of astonishment at this next exhibit. 
You probably have not been aware. Oh retro- 
gressing geologists in the audience, that 
there has ever been a monster of tliis mam- 
moth size since the advent and departure of 
the relicated Dinosauers of pre-historic ori- 
gin. But this relative of the elephant family 
was ac'tually discovered roaming the intrica- 
cies of our campus underbrush. And do not 
fail to note his l)old and open-to-tlie-public 
proposal to the female. 

Come closer. Oh, thou Essence of hi- 
quisitiveness, you cannot disturb this beast. 
He is the ever-growling unarousable Hogle. 
Readv with the crowbar there, George 
Wake him up. Pry him upon his feet into 
living consciousness. Ah! only a receding 
cavei-nous growl. You'll have to wait until 
the next exhibit, Ladies. 

By wav of introduction, Delvers into 
Romance, let me state that in all the realm 
of fairy tales. Arabian Xights or melodra- 
matic movies, will you ever find an animal so 
statelv, dignified and striking in appearance 
as this Richmond type? Mirabile dictu,
