The President s Message 

What should be said to the graduating class of a 
modern American college that would be worth remem- 
bering in years to come? 

First : Remember you are starting life all over again. 
If you have made mistakes and blunders, forget them. 
A new world lies before you. 

"How ample the marsh and the sea and the sky." 

Second : If you have made good use of your oppor- 
tunities at college, you must know by now that nothing 
really matters except the quality of your own thoughts 
and feelings and deeds. All of your future life will be 
an expression of your character. 

"Es ist der geist der sich den koerper baut." 

Third : Remember that the more excellent the goal 
that you set for your endeavors the more certain it is 
that you will never arrive at it. 

"A search is the thing he has taught you 
For height and for depth and for wideness." 

Fourth : Remember that in proportion as you rigidly 
perform your duty, you will create enemies on the 
outside and in proportion as you do not rigidly perform 
your duty, you will create enemies on the inside. The 
former may harass you, but the latter will destroy you.

On Departing 

'Tis but a fading memory 

But Oh! how fondly dear, 
Its thoughts are like a reveries, 

Through many a weary year. 

I may not to the world disclose, 

This memory I hold so rare, 
Nor tell them of my many woes. 

And pains, and worry and career. 

Who has not saved some simple thing. 
More precious than jewels rare, 

A faded picture, a broken ring. 
Or a lock of golden hair? 

Is there a heart that does not keep, 

Within its hidden core. 
Some fond remembrance driven deep. 

Of the days that come no more?

What Happened in ^33^^34 

By Merkiman Smith 

THE inauguration of Freshman Week on the Oglethorpe campus started the activ- 
ities of the year rocking along early in the fall quarter. The school entertained 
the rats as they had never been entertained before . . . Bon fires . . . parades ... an 
alfresco tea . . . and the highlight of Freshman Week, the picnic at the lake . . . Jose- 
phine Lippold and Bob Kuppers were chosen Mr. and Miss Freshman during the pic- 
nic and water carnival. 

Football got under way and the Petrels brought warmth to the heart of the entire 
campus by completely upsetting and defeating the Jaspers of Manhattan in New York 
City. The season ended, however, with a defeat at the hands of Mercer. And then 
things began to happen . . . Coach Robertson resigned . . . President Jacobs an- 
nounced a complete revolution of the dining room system . . . and before the campus 
could realize it, exams bore down upon the students. 

Then came the holidays. The holidays were anxious ones. Many were in a hurry 
to return to test the new dining room system and when school did re-open, the dining 
room resembled something like a combination of the Waldorf-Astoria and the Ritz- 
Carlton. The co-eds flocked to the dining room as never before. A la carte became 
the password and it was not long before Pat Kilpatrick and his horn blowers were 
providing fine music during lunch each day and the student body had "Dinah" between 
the cocktail and the main course and "Doin' The Uptown Lowdown" between the salad 
and the desert. The change of the dining room was undoubtedly the outstanding event 
of 1934. 

A lot of pretty snow came drifting down during the early part of February and 
held up spring training for a while. Spring training, by the way, was conducted under 
the excellent supervision of Coach Frank Anderson, John Patrick and Andy Morrow. 

Then a pretty good bit of rain and then spring! Spring came with a flourish. 
Baseball started. The soul of socked horsehide eminated from Hermance Field every 
afternoon. Exams came and were survived by some. 

As the YAMACRAW rumbles over the presses, the baseball season will start in 
earnest. The sororities will be planning big dances and there will be a good bit of 
activity to anticipate. A series of Commencement Dances looms up when we consult 
the calendar for May. The seniors are beginning to worry about the finals. And the 
YAMACRAW rumbles on. 

All during the school year of '34, intramural athletics ran along their most de- 
sirable course. As this is written, the most exciting tournament to date was the boys 
basketball tourney and the superb play of the Alpha Lambda Tau team, lead by the 
lanky Ed Copeland, as it swept through the tournament undefeated, but severely con- 

The feeble tapping of this typewriter ceases as we recall . . . sorority houses in- 
stead of rooms during '34 . . . fraternity houses, also . . . the Chi O's upsetting the 
dope and winning the girls baslcetball crown . . . introduction of a course in Chinese 
. . . the many new co-op boys . . . Sterling Lanier, grandson of Sidney Lanier, as a 
professor, singing master and orchestra leader ... a successful Glee Club . . . the 
debaters from Mercer and Freshman Perry's fine oratory. 

The typewriter stops and the chronicles of the year ends. 

To the photographers of El- 
liott's Studios ive dedicate this 
page for their fine work on 
the pictures of this book.

Senior Glass History 

WE, THE class of '34, look back over our four enjoyable years with a tinge of re- 
luctance knowing that time and experiences never return. 

Under the guidance of Phil Hildreth, as president of the class, no end of accom- 
plishments have been achieved. In the final year Freshman Week was inaugurated, 
and the Petrel Dining Hall with its dance orchestra will create lingering memories as 
the finale of our college life. 

Phil Hildreth, four times president of his class, brings out the fact that one true 
leader will join with the citizens of our country. Hildreth also leaves with no end of 
football and basketball laurels to his credit. His stellar backfield ability recalls the 
Manhattan victory of 6-0 in '34, when the Petrels travelled all the way to New York 
to bring back glory to their Alma Mater. 

Mildred Eaves, who holds the highest scholastic average in the University, leaves 
with the honor of having been co-ed mother for two years. Mildred, accompanied by 
Nellie Jane Gaertner, Lloyd Davis, and Gilbert Wood, has the honor of having the 
Oglethorpe coat-of-arms. 

Four years ago with our class as freshmen, Intra-mural athletics began replacing 
inter-collegiate basketball. Equal opportunity in athletics made stars in the class such 
as Eddie Anderson, who holds the cross country record of two miles in eleven minutes, 
and then we look up to our classmate Happy Vance, who has the honor of being an All- 
American catcher in baseball. Then there are the football heroes. Bob Thurmond 
was captain this year, with Eddie Anderson, Emory Chandler, Jack Harrison, Phil 
Hildreth, Rudy Shouse, and Harry Wren, all members of the varsity, each with spec- 
tacular plays to his credit. 

Now the finale of our four years' accomplishments as literati, this Yamacraw is 
appearing through the efforts of Sara Sharpe, Sidney Flynt, and Thornwell Jacobs, 
Jr., for your pleasure and amusement, and to add to your collection of high school an- 
nuals. Sid Flynt, president of the student body, and editor of the Petrel, we remember 
brought literary honor home when he went to Athens to the Press convention and aid- 
ed in getting the Petrel accepted in the Georgia Collegiate Press association. With the 
leadership of these outstanding senior journalists, the Yamacraw was reincarnated 
after being dead for a year. 

Leading in the social realm of the senior class were Mary and Florence Bryan who, 
we recall, made their debut last fall. 

Having attained dignity, culture, and refinement, according to Lloyd Davis, Bob 
Thurmond, and Ruth Lewis, the officers assisting Hildreth, this band of classmates is 
prepared to be graduated. Though we hate to leave Oglethorpe, we are proud to know 
that upon our graduation, all that stands between us and the top of the ladder — is the

The Spirit of Lanier 

Yon trim Shakespeare on the cope of Lupton Hall, 
Calls through the sunny hours, 

"Oglethorpe, Oglethorpe, 

Where's Lanier? Where's- Lanier? 

Is he here? Is he here? 

Here — Here — Here — Here?" 
And the solemn chimes give answer, 

"Here he hath bSen, is, and will be. 

Evermore — forevermore!" 
And in the quiet moonlight, 
When the wind speaks of Okmulgee, 
Then the mockingbird, in memory 
Of his master's silver flute. 
Trills the echo of a spirit 
Catholic and heaven-high. 
That will not die. 
That — will — not — die! 

Affectionately dedicated to Lanier's twin spirit — 
Thornwell Jacobs.

Soohomore Glass 

By Jean Ward Farrell 

THE Sophomore Class of 1933-34 was one of the most representative groups on the 
campus. Its roster included the names of students who were outstanding in their 
particular field of activity. 

In football, the names of Frieman, Pickard, Farmer, Byers, and Shaw, were prom- 
inent, and they stood out as some of the better players on the Stormy Petrel's grid 

Baseball claimed no less number, and foremost among them was Carl Anthony, 
who besides being an efficient member of Coach Anderson's team, was elected president 
of the Sophomore Class. Bill Borman "won his spurs" in football, and did the same in 
baseball under Coach Frank's tutelage. Ed Copeland landed the position of reserve 
pitcher for the Petrels, and admirably assisted "Lefty" Dixon on the mound. 

In the Intramurals we find the names of some co-eds who won their letters in this 
field. Billie Happoldt and Kathleen Wright rated as among the best girl athletes on 
the campus, and were two of the twenty high point girls last year. Their forte is 
basketball, and it's a real treat to see these two girls make spectacular shots, and de- 
vise new ways to outwit their opponents on the mapel floor. 

The Players Club, dramatic organization, had as its president this past year, 
Paul Carpenter, Jr., one of our Sophomores. This club did splendid work and pro- 
duced "Dark Eyes," a one-act comedy which met with the approval of its audiewce. 
Paul also directed the Round Town Players in their first production, "Arms and the 
Man," which was well-acted and beautifully presented. 

The Le Conte Club, honorary scientific organization on the campus, listed two of 
our classmates as probable members. Robert Stephenson and Jimmie Richardson so 
distinguished themselves in the field of science that they were asked to join this group. 

So it is with pardonable pride that I point to us, the Sophomores of 1933-34, as 
one of the most versatile and representative groups ever assembled together, and with 
one glance at the above descriptions of just some of us, it is plain to see why I say we 
are "Wise Fools."

Radio History at Oglethorpe University 

By Vernon Anderson 

JUNE 6, 1931 marked the beginning of a new era in the history of education. It was 
the birthday of Radio Station WJTL, the Radio Division of Oglethorpe University. 
Early in the spring of 1931 Oglethorpe received the permission of the Federal Ra- 
dio Commission to erect and operate a radio station. The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. 
John Thomas Lupton, donors of Lupton Hall, made possible the installation of one of 
the most completely equipped regional channel stations in America, whose call letters 
were formed from the initials of our gracious friends. 

At first the entire station was located in Lupton Hall, on the campus of the Uni- 
versity. The entire Biology Department was moved from Lupton Hall to Lowry Hall 
to make room for the new Radio Division. Two large studios were constructed and 
elaborately equipped and a small room was turned into a transmitting and control 

Thus on June 6, with the beginning of regular lectures, Oglethorpe University be- 
came the possessor of the first standard Radio College in the history of the world. 
There have been many educational programs presented over many broadcasting sta- 
tions, but never before, so far as we have been able to learn, in the history of this 
or any other country, has a complete college course been broadcast by a complete fac- 
ulty in the same manner as when offered on the campus. 

The equipment of WJTL is of the latest type available. The transmitter is an 
RCA 100-W, employing direct crystal control and 100 per cent modulation. RCA mic- 
rophones and amplifiers are used in the studios. In addition, a new RCA frequency 
monitor has recently been purchased to enable the station to comply with the new gov- 
ernment regulations concerning frequency deviation and frequency checking. 

After a few months of operation in Lupton Hall, officials of the University decided 
that greater Atlanta could be better served by moving the transmitter nearer the cen- 
ter of the city. Accordingly, therefore, the Yaarab Shrine Mosque, one of the most 
beautiful buildings in the South, was picked as the new site for the transmitter. At 
the same time it was decided to erect a new type of antenna which would also add to 

the efficiency of the station. This new antenna, which is a seven ton, 135 foot, base- 
insulated steel tower, is the first quarter-wave vertical radiator in the world. It rep- 
resents an achievement resulting from years of study and research directed toward 
the production of a system giving maximum radiation of the power supplied to it. 
Engineers have pronounced it the ultimate in antenna construction. The tower was 
erected atop the Mosque and directly under it a transmitting room and a small studio 
were built. The large studios Et Oglehorpe were retained, having been connected with 
the new transmitter location by special telephone lines. About the middle of November 
the work was completed and one Sunday afternoon WJTL broadcast her first program 
from the Yaarab Shrine Mosque. Reports soon showed that the expectations of the 
officials were justified. 

A glance at a day's schedule will give seme idea of the scope of the work carried on 
by the Radio Division. Each morning the station is opened with a devotional program 
from 6:45 to 7:00. This is followed by an hour of variety musical programs. At 
eight o'clock Dr. H. J. Gaertner lectures on beginners' German. A lecture is of fifty 
minutes duration and is followed by a ten minute recess, during which music is offer- 
ed. At nine o'clock Dr. James E. Routh lectures on English, Idioms and Good Usage. 
A lecture on an Introduction to Economics is presented by Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge 
at ten o'clock, and at eleven Dr. James E. Routh lectures on Types of literature. Prof. 
Francisco Perez offers a course in beginners' Spanish at twelve o'clock. Luncheon 
hour lasts from twelve-fifty until two o'clock. During this time a varied musical pro- 
gram is presented over the station. At two o'clock Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge resumes 
the educational program with a lecture on Contemporary Civilization. At three o'clock 
a lecture is given on Business Problems. At four Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodg'e returns 
to the air to lecture on an Introduction to Philosophy. At five o'clock Dr. Mark Bur- 
rows concludes the day's educational activity with a lecture on the Biography of Mu- 
sicians, magnificently illustrated with recordings of their respective works. From 
five-fifty until twelve, midnight, various commercial and sustaining programs are pre- 

With the beginning of the 1932-33 year Oglethorpe University instituted a com- 
plete four year course in radio broadcasting. Every phase of radio work, including 
the commercial, managerial and technical aspects, is taught, together with courses in 
announcing, studio direction and program formulation. Completion of the required 
four year course entitles a student to a degree of Bachelor of Arts in the School of 
Radio Broadcasting. Oglethorpe thus became the first standard university in the 
world to offer a full four year course in radio learning to an accredited college degree. 
The regular faculty of the new radio college is headed by Dr. James E. Routh as dean, 

The regular faculty of the new radio college is headed by Dr. James E. Routh as dean 
and others of the Oglethorpe faculty, as follows: Dr. John A. Aldrich, physics; Dean 
J. F. Sellers, chemistry; Dr. Mark Burrows, music; Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, history of 
the earth and its inhabitants; Professor Porohovshikov, Professor Perez and Professor 
Pattelli, modern languages; Dr. Gaertner, psychology; Dr. D. Witherspoon Dodge, 
radio ethics; Professor Vernon Anderson, studio management and radio theory; Pro- 
fessor Frank Parkins, radio technique; and professor Albert Ril3y, radio code. 

The personnel of radio station WJTL has been drawn from every branch of the 
radio industry and from the student body of the university. The staff is as follows: 
Edward Hughes, general manager; Frank Parkins, chief engineer; Vernon Anderson, 

assistant chief engineer; Paul Goldman, 
program director; Albert Riley, Robert 
Adams, and Frank Whitmore, technical en- 
gineers; Roger Skelton and Luther Nuc- 
kolls, control operators and announcers. 

Because the activities of the Radio Di- 
vision are not confined solely to the edu- 
cational field, its history would not be com- 
plete without some mention of its enter- 
tainment facilities. WJTL has furnished 
the radio public some of the foremost mu- 
sical talent of the South. The Oglethorpe 
orchestra, under the director of Professor 
Sterling Lanier, Nathan Zwick, and David 
Lashner became the WJTL studio orchestra 
and endeared itself to all who listen. 
The Glee Club has been a favorite with the 
radio audience. Oglethorpe athletic events 
have been and will be broadcast. Sunday 
devotional programs and Church services 
of St. Luke's Episcopal Church are regular 

Closely linked with its educational 
work, are the dramatic features presented 
by WJTL. Sponsored by the Oglethorpe 
Players Club, a series of plays were broad- 
cast and received favorable response. A 
class in radio drama was begun and pro- 
duced some plays of notable quality. This 
phase of work is largely under the direction of Dr. James E. Routh. The pibneer 
work begun by the students under his direction and guidance will be continued and 
enlarged upon. It is rapidly becoming one of the most important features of the Radio 

The introduction of the Radio Division to Oglethorpe University also opened up 
many new opportunities to members of the student body who wished to Work for a 
part of their college expenses. A large number of these students are employed by 
WJTL. The studio orchestra is made up entirely of students, and several regular 
members of the staff of entertainers were drawn from the student body. 

A large part of the personnel of WJTL is composed of students. Some who had 
the required characteristics were trained as announcers and those with technical train- 
ing were employed as engineers. As entertainers, Oglethorpe students have proved 
highly versatile and some artists of real merit have been found.

GRADUATION, mile stones passed, starting on a new life journey, 
courses run, speeches, commencement. But as the 1934 Yamacraw 
becomes an assured thing through process of change, let us pause and 
reflect a little on the Stormy Petrel gridmen that posted the "1933" ac- 
count on the football records at Oglethorpe. 

Suffering from the heavy hand of Ole Man Graduation for the past 
June Chief accountant Harry Robei-tson called his "33"' model Petrels 
to report for practice on September 1st. Some sixty men answered the 
call. At the first appearance Coach Harry began to make new plans 
for no-draft ventilating, knee action and streamlining his new creation. 
Something that would be able to stand the rough road of the coming 
season. Many of the models of the season before were on hand to help 
the new members and to give advice on the testing ground. For the 
initial week Hermance Stadium became a place of groans, moans, and 
creaking chasses but with the trainers lubricating the new machines be- 
gan to show some of their old form, so by the middle of the second week 
all were called to the track to give a performance. This proved an 
afternoon of good hard scrimmage. The watchful eyes of Chief engineer 
Robertson dilated with hopeful anticipation. 

Some ten of this year's seniors answered that call and donned the 
costume for their "Swan Song" act. Those that were issued uniforms 

Pickard Chandler Shaw McNeely 





for the last time were Captain Bob Thurmond, Reed Craven, Phil Hil- 
dreth, Rudy Shouse, Harry Wrens, Jack Harrison and Sid Flynt. An- 
derson was the only quarterback in the crowd and Julian Herriot the 
only guard. All of these saw plenty of seryice during the season and 
most of them carved a niche for themselves in the Oglethorpe football 
hall of f?me. 

With but tw'enty one days to get his men in shape for the first 
game Harry Robertson had his hands full. The future was a hope for 
a fair season with a group of foes that had not been equalled before in 
the history of the school. Heretofore the Petrels have been called the 
giant killers because of their upsetting of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and 
many Eastern schools that had impressive teams. Could the little Birds 
do the same thing this season, was the thoughts that passed through 
the mind of Chief Robby, as he gazed at the names of Auburn, Ala- 
bama, Manhattan, and Mercer, which appeared on the schedule card. 

From the middle of the second weak scrimmages came every day, 
fast and furious. The days slipped by, five days, ten, and then the day 
of the first game. What would the Petrels do with the strong team 
that w?s coming from Newberry College. The papers carried head- 
lines, front page stories and on September 21st, the Oglethorpe Petrels 
opened the local college football season at night with the fighting war- 
riors from South Carolina.

1933-34 Football Team and Coaches 

The opening whistle sounded and the Stormy Birds had started 
their season. Fro mthe beginning the game wts in favor of the Robby 
men. When the final whistle blew they had won their first game with 
an overwhelming score of 25 to 0. The paper predicted a successful 
season for the gridmen from the Peachtree Road Institution. Things 
looked bright, the players were full of hope and determination. 

In the first fracas Harry Wrens, Phil Hildreth, Bob Thurmond, 
Jack Harrison, Rudy Shouse, Reed Craven and Eddie Andsrson showed 
that they were the best for their respective positions and gave the this 
year's senior class one of the best records that any senior class has ever 
had so far as football is concerned. Did these fellows strut? Several 
younger men showed that they would come in for some serious considera- 
tion before the curtain was drawn on the '3o-'34 campaign. These 
standouts were S?m Leslie, Jim Darracott, Willie Belle Robinson, Hank 
Freeman, Bee Clark, Jack McNeely, Major Chandler, and several others. 

After the results of this opening encounter was known, word cams 
from over at the University of Alabama, the next opponent, that the 
trainer of the Red Elephants said that they were sticking up their ears 
and taking notice of the Oglethorpe encounter. Through the beginning 
•of the next week much work was undergone to shape a good attack for 
the Elephants. Leaving on Friday and going by the Hound way (Grey- 
hound Bus) the team landed all ready for the scrap on the following 

The sky was dark and the rain descended, so did the Red Mammoths. 
Throwing their trunks in the air they ran rough shod over the Petrels 
to the score of 34 to 0. But though thsy seemingly had a sweet after- 
noon of the affair, they were hard pressed at times to make the grade. 
Several times the Birds pecked dangerously at their goal line but failed 
by inches. Weight and experience could not be over come. 

The return was slightly less bright than the trip to Tuscaloosa but 
on the Monday following practice was as usual. This time the work 
was for the trip to New York and the Manhattan game. This affair 
proved to be a battle of coaches. Rebertson was pitting his brain and 
brawn against his old master and former coach. The younger man was 
the victor and Oglethorpe chalked up another intersectional victory. 
The victory created a stir among sports circles because an untried team 
rose to the heights to defeat a powerful and much vaunted clan of foot- 
ballers under Chick Meehan.

^GLETHORPE should be and is proud of her baseball history. In 
1924 the Stormy Petrels held the undisputed title to the Southern 
Collegiate Baseball Championship, and again in 1930 played the same 
high brand of ball to win this honor again. If we look back into the 
records of Oglethorpe teams, we find such names, famous in professional 
ranks, as Wingo, Carlyle, Turk, Porter, Bryant, Appling, and others. 
Much of the credit for the success of these players goes to Coach Frank 
B. Anderson, who is called the "father of athletics" at Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity. His fame as a coach has spread all over the south and during 
the past years many a big league scout has been seen on the campus 
looking over the players as they practice out on Hermance Field. 

Last year's graduates from the team left many important positions 
to be filled. Those who played their last game for Oglethorpe were: 
Whitley, a flashy second baseman and a consistent batter; Chink Mar- 
tin, a short stop whose place will be difficult to fill; Charley George, 
who is now catching for New Orleans and is headed for the "big show"; 
Sam Baker, a centerfielder who was a one manoutfit; Parker Bryant, 
a great first baseman, and Reed Craven, a hustling catcher. 

The men back from last year are: Vance, Dixon, Fisher, Robison, 
Clark and Anderson. The new candidates are: Farmer, Moon, McGinty, 
Sullivan, Wade, Harrison, Anthony, Copeland, McCullough, and Thran- 
hardt. It is a little early in the season to make a px'ediction as to the 
merits of the current team, but in practice the boys look good. So far 
this season Oglethorpe has won three and lost three in practice games.

Players Glub 

FOURTEEN YEARS AGO the Oglethorpe University Players Club v/as organized 
with Marion Gaertner as President and Caroline Cobb as Director. Since then, it 
has forged ahead until it is now one of the leading college theater groups. As director 
Miss Cobb was followed by Fred Stewart, Earl Blackwell, Sam Miller and the prssent 
director, Paul Carpenter, Jr. 

THE PLAYERS CLUB has contributed no little talent to the stage and screen. 
Abrahrm Orowitz was one of the first to graduate from this organization to the New 
York stage where he appeared in "Counselor at Law." Fred Stewart was praised high- 
ly by the New York critics for his performance in "Ladies of Creation." Earl Black- 
well veered from the stage and is now working in motion pictures for the Metro-Gold- 
wyn-Mayer Picture Corporation in Hollywood, Cal. Claudia Smaw's thespian ability 
was well received by Atlanta audiences when she plaved here in stock last year. Paul 
Carpenter, Jr., met with an appreciative audience in his portrayals while playing with 
the Peruchi Playevs here last season. 

HIS FIRST ATTEMPT at play production at Oglethorpe was in the presentation 
of "Dark Eyes," a one-act comedy which proved a financial as well as a practical suc- 
cess. Martha Carmichael and Bill Loy, as the leads, carried their parts well, and 
Eleanor Rogers, Jean Farrell, Thornwell Jacobs, Jr., and Paul Carpenter, Jr., were 
excellent in the supporting cast. 

AN INTERESTING SUPPLEMENT to the Players Club is the class in Play 
Production, held once a week under the direction of Paul Carpenter, Jr. This class 
tends to train the students in stage technique and to fit them for parts in Players Club

A sputtering lamp on the mantle-shelf, 

And the fire burning low; 
The world has nodded off to sleep, 

And I must go. 

A spatter of rain on the window-sill, 
And the cold wind blustering by; 

The world forgets it ever lived, 
And so must I. 

A shuddering thought of the morrow's care. 
And a sigh for the yesterday; 

And now for prayer and a little sleep 
The While I may. 

— WiGHTMAN F. Melton 


When I am dead, 
And Mistress Spring 
Shakes our her snow- 
Flecked golden head. 

What if you lie 
Above my grave. 
And think of times 
Gone by, and why 

Now that I dwell 
So far away, 
My memory 
You can't dispel, 

Why then my brow 
Will not be sad, 
But calm and cold 
As yours is now. 

— T. Jacobs, Jr.

Ask of me what thou wilt: The gold thy heart desires, 
The place where rubies flame and diamonds light their fires. 
But e'er thy hand has grasped my treasures passing rare, 
Bend low thine ear, I would with thee this secret share: 
Ask not for tvealth, nor fame, nor ease, nor sceptered rod; 
Choose duty's stern comm-and to toil for men and God.

Golden opinions from all sorts of people. — Shakespeare. Q 


The love of praise, howe'er concealed by art, 
Reigns more or less and glows in every heart. 

Dr. E. Young. 



Good name in man and woman, dear my Lord, TW" 

Is the immediate jewel of their souls: ' 

Who steals my purse, steals trash; 't is some- f^ 

thing, nothing; 
'T was mine, 't is his, and has been slave to 

thousands ; o 

But he that filches from me my good name jj 

Robs me of that which not enriches him, rr\ 

And makes me poor indeed. Shakespeare. 1 




Unblemished let me live, or die unknown; 

grant an honest fame, or grant me none ! Pope.

I am weary of the passing hours, 

Weary of the tardy noon, 
The crawhng minutes steal my powers, 

Empty moments come too soon. 

Visions sing a song of praise, 
To quell my aching breast. 

To them my arms upraise. 

Thankful, for the peaceful rest. 

My hopes and my desires, 
Are truths of silvery beams, 

My soul with love aspires, 

To the myriad land of dreams. 

— BuEL Grant

"There are four requisites to a good short story," explained 
Mr. England to the class. "Brevity, a reference to religion, 
some association with the royalty and an illustration of mod- 
esty. Now, with these four things in mind, I will give you 
thirty minutes to write a story." 

Ten minutes later the hand of Bull Shaw went up. 

"That's fine, Bull," he complimented, "and now read your 
story to the class." 

Bull read : "My, Gawd," said the Countess, "take your hand 
off my knee."
