attempted only to present a history of Colby as we have known her. If in so doing we have fused with our thoughts and memories of the past our confidence for Colby in the future, we have only done that which in our hearts we feel is Colby's due. We have achieved our end if we, the graduating class, leave behind us a record of our endeavors and instil in some meas­ ure

�ruinr Qlln.a!i i!;i!itnry M E N ' S DIVISION A few short days ago, it seems, we fi rst found o urselves on the campus walks of Colby. S ince then many things h ave happened to change us, indi­ vidually, but always we have entertained the highest love, hope and ambi­ tions for our Alma M ater. D u ring these short four years we h ave tried to do much for C olby, b ut it has been all too l ittle in return for what she bas done for us. We are now fitted to walk the many paths of l ife that lead, we know not where, but always i n the shadow o f our college days. We feel the heritage that we have gained, i n our years of toil as followers and then as leaders of campus life, will guide u s through the m aze of paths that we must follow through life. We l eave Col by and her sheltered l eadershi p with m any regrets. Never will we again experience the happy hours that we have spent withi n her walls. W e m u s t now content ourselves w ith looking in, occasionally, from the outside, but always we will know that we are Colby men and a lways will we carry with us the Colby spirit. Though we l eave we will never forget.

"Sn ap" is certainly a bundle of dynamic energy, to use his own term. How so much action can be packed in so small a package is hard to tell.

Red, a subject of King George, from across the St. Croix River has made a name for himself both as an athlete and as a student. On the athletic field as well as in his studies he has won recognition by his sterling ability, character, and his never-say-die spirit. No obstacle is too great for "Red" to tackle . Foss Hall has also had its share of attention from "Red," and both divisions will miss him when he leaves Colby. The world needs men like " B at" so we hardly need to wish him the best of success in life.

"Too much to do" has been " Curt's" password. We agree with him heartily for he has been one b u sy boy. A variety of interests have . combined to make " Bl o tski" a business man, a chorister of real ability, and a man whom Colby can well acclaim as one of her own. " C u rt" has bought up several shares in the Maine Central and uses his trains to make frequent trips back h ome to B u t all " E ddie of Troy" if you know what we mean . fooling aside " Curt" has been a n o utstanding man i n his three short years at Colby and w e can see n othing but success for him i n the world of business.

T o hear thi fellow you would firmly believe in the virtu es of the bird eed for breakfast food. Four years ago he slid into C olby during an autumnal rain, and has been inging in the rain ever since. A little bird (not a cucko o ) tells us that he bas made himself one of Waterville's own as well C olby's. We m eet him work­ ing in the library, in the local post-office, and i n a local church. It will be no surprise to discover that he is a city-manager or some such in the future. Next year he enters the teaching profession. All power to him. LINDON EDWIN "Abe"

In meeting "Abe", one i s immediately impressed by his dynamic personality. "Abe" came to Colby with a set of strong principles which he has suc cessfully passed on to his associates. Forced by adverse financial cir­ cum tances to devote much of his time to reple nishing his finances, nevertheless he has done much for his col­ lege and fraternity. "Abe" has always held the inter­ ests of Colby second to n one. He has participated in numerous campus activities in which he has clearly demonstrated his managerial ability. As the athletic dire ctor of his fraternity, he has helped to place it in an enviable position. No college social function bas been complete without "Abe" as his terpsichorean skill coupled with an excellent conversational ability and a jovial manner have amply testified. We are sure that "Abe" will win success in later life because of his com­ m ercial ability as shown during his school years. We w i l l certai nly miss " A b e " a n d we wish h i m t h e greatest success i n life.

"Frank" is a worker. He has ·pushed his way through Colby, taking part in all he could and never giving up. His quality of sticking to a j ob to the end will certainly help him outside the pale of Colby's gates. May all success be yours "Frank" in whatever you undertake.

This fair youth from Springfield descended upon us four years ago and has spe nt his college days working for all that was worth while in both college and fra­ ternity. He has perhaps made more friends than the average college man because of his keen sense of humor and beaming personality. His work as an actor will not easily be forgotten and we know that his college work is an example of the success he will achieve in Life.

Extra-curricular activities that college affords d o not have a vapid interest for some. Here is an individual who has spent his time neither at the rostra, nor wear­ ing the buskin, nor passing the baton. The four walls of his room have studied him attending to the duties that are prescribed for attaining the reward of four years' service. He retains his Latin books and his fine sense of humor. The acquaintances which have invaded his sanctuary are pleased because they have met and talked with him. They, who know him, realize that his abilities are sure , that his co urse of study was proper, and that his deliberateness and constancy is to him a credit.

But when one becomes better acquainted with him, it is found that he is capable of a friendship of which few are capable, that h e is always optimistic, and ready to sacrifice his own pleasure to help others. H e is far from being a politician like his fellow townsman, but he has other talents which are e qually worthy of re­ nown. His ability as a violinist, pian ist, and actor is well known. It is also said that h e excels in the Terp­ sichorean art. Forty

"Pomp" is really a remarkable fellow. H e has fin­ ishe d four years at Colby hon orably-and without hav­ ing taken a single cut. Years of chemistry and a natomy, test-tubes, b e akers, frogs, and cats-all have c ome a n d h a v e been not merely passed but passed w i t h hon ors. The best of luck i n "me d " school-and later a clinic with your partner.

Hard working and seri ous a s h e may seem, he i s always ready Perhaps Foss Hall is the reason for for a good j oke. this, and also the reason why h e pipes love songs on the time.

Here is an individual who came to Colby as a boy and leaves as a man. With a mental capacity for chemistry he has left a trail of high marks. Quiet and unassum­ ing, but accomplishing much. Success is ahead and we expect to hear from you as one of Colby's prominent alumnus.

Bernie i s also very adept a t imitating the vari­ ous movie stars as they appear in pictures at the Haines.

For thre e years Foss Hall claimed him as one of her own but with out­ side attractions taken away, Bill got to know more of the boys and more of C olby in his senior year. Waldo­ boro still has its charms and the call is responded to on spring week-ends. One thing Bill learned while here was the importance fo being a democrat. B ill enters the employ of W. T .

He has become well known and liked throughout the realm of intercollegiate track athletics, where he has always been a staunch and loyal representative of C olby.

3Juntnr C!Ilmrn llli.a tnry During our three years at Colby we have striven to always live in the Colby way.

As each new task came before us we have tried to do it a little

better than those preceding us have done.

In doing this we have grown i n

capability and capacity and Colby has been the driving force. We are now ready to face the last year of our c.ollege days at Colby. We are confident that we are well steeped in the ways and ideals of Colby and are thus fit to carry on the leadership of her undergraduate activities. We h ave always answered the call of Colby and have placed her name above all others. We are sure that i n this, our last year, we will be able to do still

more for her and that is our desire .

If we can further her development

and place her on even a higher pedestal than that on which she now stands, we can look back with even greater pride on that which we have accom­ plished after we have finished our work here.

The class Now, that

we are not bothered any longer by the persistent b ussing of the officious Sophomores, we can turn our minds to the important things of college l ife and p repare ourselves to take over the important positions in collegiate l ife. We are eminently fitted to fill any or all of them . The Sophomores met us officially on "Bloody Monday Night" and chas­ tised us, but it did not take us l ong to turn the tables.

We ran our banquet

off without molestation of any sort and then proceeded to show the Sopho­ mores that we no l onger needed their guiding h ands. Thus far we have been preeminently successful in our college career and all indications point that in the future we will be even more so.

Margaret thinks a college education may be most profit­ ably used i n ma rriage and i s planning to carry out her theory soon after graduation. We all wish you happiness, Margaret. Eighty

Polly always does things in a large way for a small person. When she studies-she studies. W hen she has a good time, she has a good time-and so d 0€ s everyone with her. W he n she sleeps she talks. From the moment o f her entrance into these noble halls of learning she has been continuously h au nted by a m a rked resemblance to Collee n M oore. The writer finds it necessary to leave the country before Polly reads the l a st statement.

Not too clever to be loved, not too witty to be enjoyed ; not sophisticated, but wh-0lesome and sweet ; one with a qu iet charm and dainty d ignity that is never marred ; companionable, but never intruding, tactful, yet sincere : one whom you love to have come and hate to have go ; one who fascinates you by indefinable mannerisms which make her herself and no other-our Jayne ! You can't forget that she is the center of attraction wherever there is a piano,-and the jazzy tunes that fall from her nimble fingers. To one whom we shall love and miss-Jayne !

The vision of the ideal guards the monotony of work from becoming m-0notony of l ife. This is Mary's phil­ osophy of l ife. Her depth of character, her ambitions and her ideals not only give a zest to her own life but also serve as an inspiration to others. We hope her ideals will be realized and that her intense interest in music and German wil l lead to her success. O f one thing we are certain, however, that Mary will be successful in acquir­ i ng and retai ning friends because of her amiability and her clever impersonaticns of M rs. Kadoozle.

She doesn't need an introduction for she's been the most popular girl on the campus for four years, in spite of the large girl she always has with her. Is there anyone who doesn't recognize her ? It's Pauline Smith, the hero­ ine of " The Queen's H usband," Princess Ann, the most refined, the biggest-hearted, the most amiable, the most adorable, the most lovable of girls.

It has been a hard struggle.

We have made mistakes and profited by them and now we stand worthy to bear the name of Colby Women. 1 93 1 has leaders in all phases of Colby's activities, religious, social, and athletic.

Our prowness in athletics has been parti�ularly outstanding

with our victory in the battle for the Athletic Cup.

With the material it

presents, the Junior Class promises a superlative coming year.

No longer do we have to pour innum­

erable glasses of water for our th irsty friends ; no longer subserviently fling open doors for long lines of slowly moving upper classmen .

This year

we have come to that blissful state where we are far superior to the Fresh­ men, and in our minds, at least, only a little lower than the angels. Seriously, though, now that the trying period of becoming acclimated is over, we feel that we are really Colby students in the true sense of the word.

We are rooting for Colby on the bleachers, working for her in the

classroom, and cheering for her far and wide.

If we grow to love her as

much more e ach succeeding year as we have this last one, Colby will have at least one true and loyal group of supporters in the class of '32.

111o otba11 1!\ebiew The Colby football team, under the able tutelage of Coach E ddie Roundy, once more came through i n 1 929, and with a list of victories over strong teams to its credit, Colby scored a total of 9 0 points to her oppo­ nents' 66. A fter a pre-season period of training in the fundamentals of the game, the Colby football season got under way with a wealth of veteran material and plenty of untried candidates. The fi rst game, played on Sept. 28, with the University of New Hampshire, due to the weakness of the backfield in tackling and in b re aking up the aerial attack of the v isitors, ended w ith Colby on the low end of a 20-7 score, although a promising spirit of aggres­ siveness was shown by Coach Roundy's charges. The following week, Colby was handed another drubbing, this time by the T ufts J umbo. With D onovan easily the outstanding player of the til t, Colby showed a brand of football in the second half that p.ugured well for the future, and had it not been for a slow start the White M ule doubtless would have retired from the field a. conqueror of the pachyderm from Medford. O n O ctober 2, through the rapidly developing teamwork of the Colby eleven, the White Mule was enabled to tack a 20-6 defeat on the Norwich team at Norwich, and showed far better offensive and defensive work than had been shown p reviously. The following week, the Newport Sailors met w ith shipwreck before the attack of Colby's fighting M ules, and returned to their home port vic­ tims of a 1 9-7 defeat. The features of this game were the l ong runs m ade by Donovan and Johnstone. The offense functioned very efficiently. The crucial State S eries contest opened on October 26, when Colby met the B owdoin Polar Bears at B runswick. A game replete w ith thrills and sensational plays, Donovan's brilliant 86-yard run for a touchdown d uring the second period ended Colby's scoring and set the d opesters to chewing their pencils in a thorou gh manner. Bowdoin's only touchdown was made in the final half of the game. The final score was 1 9-6, Col by's three touchdowns having been made during the first half. The White Mule capered onto Seaverns field N ovember 2, predicted to emerge from the fray as victors over its old rival, the University of Maine's team. The field was heavy with mud and the day disagreeable. Despite the crippling of D onovan, a marked man, and the inj u ry of Pollard, Colby's big center, the Bears were unable to w ithstand the fight which the flying heels of the formidable Mule carried to them, and went down to defeat, Colby winning, 13-7. O n Armistice Day, Colby met with defeat before the onslaught of the ferocious and clawing B ates Bobcat. H u ge chunks of Mule hide were left in the wake of the desperate B obcat, which received vicious kicks i n the midriff from the heels of the gamely fighting Mule. B ates, s uperb in its attempt to gain its first c rown in 23 years, hammered and fought its way to a 7-6 victory over the equally well functioning Colby m achine, which scored 7 first downs to B ates' 6. All i n all, the football team of 1 929 was a team that ranks with the best i n Colby's history. Four, and i n the case of at least one publication ' five men were elected to the mythical All-State team. One hundred forty-O'IW

lla.arbnll �ummary At the beginning of the season, Coach Roundy was faced with the problem of organizing a n outfield. Roberts, H ines, Lee, Lovett, Thornton, Grady and Fletcher constituted the material to be selected from .

Of these

men, Lov·ett, Roberts and Thornton won their letters. Roundy pos essed a veteran i nfield : N iz iolek at fi rst, Tierney at sec­ ond, D eetj i n and Davis at third and Klusick as shortstop.

O f course, Hed­

dericg took charge of the b ackstop, but with the able s upport of M cKeen, Karkos and Jekanoski. With all this wealth of material, only three p itchers were available, B rown, Ferguson and Mansfield.

B rown was the o utstanding man, with

Ferguson a close second. The team started the season well, with a victory over Maine.


on its southern trip and beat Connecticut Aggies and Newport Training Station, but lost to Rhode Island.

R etu rning from this trip, the team l ost

to B owdoin, beat Maine and then lost to B ates.

H owever, in the next

encounter with Bowdoin we came over the victor, b ut B ates whipped u s again. T h e n Maine c a m e along and beat us, but we w o n o v e r Bowdoin and Northeastern that week and beat Maine badly at the next m eeting. Then we played B ates for the championshi p and lost.

ielay Captain






The 1930 Relay season was very successful. Although the team took part in only two races, it placed in both. Throughout the season, the team was handicapped by poor training conditions. The board track was torn up to make way for the new indoor field, and while the latter was being built the team had to train in the old gymnasium, which has none of the necessary facilities. On several occasions the team availed itself of the invitation of Bowdoin to use their indoor track, but it could not be used often enough to permit intensive training. Considering the adverse con­ ditions, Coach Ryan performed wonders with the team, and the team deserves m uch credit for the splendid record made against such odds. The members of the 1 930 team were Captain H urlburt, H odkiewicz, Kellog, E gert and Fletcher.

1llu al Wrark Boston College




Colby lost a closely contested dual Track and Field meet to Boston College on Seave rns Field. The meâ‚Źt, contested under unfavorable weather conditions, was in doubt until the last couple of events, when the visitors forged ahead. Captain George Wilczewski of Boston College was the individual star of the meet, taking first places in the high hurdles, shot put, discus and j avelin throw, and a third in the pole vault, for a total of 21 points.

Northeastern University defeated Colby i n a track meet which was exciting throughout and which was decided only by the j a velin throw, the final event. Christensen broke the Colby record in the discus throw with a heave of 129 feet 1 0 inches. Jordan tied the pole vault record of 11 feet. Sprague broke the j avelin throw record with a heave of 1 58 feet 5 inches.

Limited in the number of its squad, handicapped by not having a rink of its own, the varsity hockey team, nevertheless, had one of the most suc­ cessful seasons in the history of this sport at Colby. The State Series was unusually interesting to watch as the teams as a whole were very evenly matched with many of the games requiring overtime periods for a decision. The Colby team dropped but two games during the entire season. Bill Millett coached the team and although handling the team single-handed for the first time, his work was splendid and reflects itself in the team's record for the year. Walter B. ( Red ) Lovett was captain and played left wing. Lucien Stebbins was manager and like Coach Mil­ lett deserves great praise for the clever handling of the team and schedul­ ing of games. Centre ice was held down by Roland Dela ware flanked by Tom Kenney on the r ight wing. Bill Draper and Art. Howard were the defense men, Wendall Tufts capably alternating at e ither of these posi­ tions. Clarence A . ( Snub ) Dyer was the net guardian. Malcolm Wilson, '33, substituted at centre ice and defense. The above nine men were those who won letters. Hilton, MacDonald, Pomerleau, and Pooler show evi­ dence of making a berth on the team in future years. The entire squad save Draper, Tufts and Dyer will be back next year, eager to carry on where this season ended. One h u n rfred fifty

Wqr Nrw lJnilnnr 1'1irlil At the time of writing, the new indoor field house is, at last, approach­ ing nearness of com pletion . The outline of a spacious and beautiful build­ ing has been moulded of steel, brick and cement against the discouraging odds of severe winter weather. The building was begun during the past summer and gave every in­ dication at that time of being erected in time for indoor training for spring sports. But early in the work of laying foundations obstructions were encountered. The first serious one was the finding of a bed of quicksand at the northwest end of the site which necessitated continuous and ardu­ ous draining and pumping before the foundation could be laid. This oper­ ation consumed so many days that the winter was upon the workers be­ fore the y were ready. B ut at last they were able to lay the foundations and begin the walls. Slowly, because of the weather, the walls grew in height, and when mid-winter came were complete. Then came the difficult task of fitting the steel girders which were to hold up the roof. Except for this prob­ lem the construction encountered no adverse conditions. These girders are now all in place and work has been begun on the roofing. This con­ sists of slate with glass skylights at the top to permit the entrance of the light necessary for the inside work. The outlook now is that the building will be complete by the begin­ ning of the summer. The finishing touches are all that is left to be done, and these, while consuming time, are com paratively easy. The contract­ ors expect that all real difficulties are overcome and that the rest of the bu ilding will be finished easily. To describe this new field house is a difficult task. Just what new and up-to-date equipment will be used is uncertain, but the fact remains that the equipment provided will be the best and most up-to-date procur­ able. The house will contain a r unning track sufficiently large for the training of athletes for competition in the winter track season, and also permit the preliminary work for the regular outdoor track season. Inside the track there will be space enough to install a baseball cage for the train­ ing of the baseball teams. This has long been needed, especiall y for the baseball teams of the college which have been handicapped by lack of training due to having to wait for good outside weather before starting One hwndred Jift11-four

training for the season. Besides these two very necessary pieces of equip­ ment, it is planned to i nstall at l east one, and perhaps two tennis courts. There i s but one thing lacking i n the b u ilding and that is arrangements for flooding and freezing so that an indoor hockey rink can be obtained. However, the building when complete, will be one of the finest of its type in New E ngland and will be a great asset to the college. Not enough praise can be given those men who have worked so long and faithfully to procure for Colby adequate gymnasi um facilities. It has been a long siege, lasting many years, but with the c reation of a D evelop­ ment Fund last year a new athletic plant was assured. However, only a field house is being built. The m u ch longed-for new gymnasium is not yet forthcoming because of d ifficulties encountered and the possibility of a change i n plans as to the future location of the college. B ut even though a new gymnasium is not i n evidence on the Colby campus, all those con­ nected with the work of providing for the new athletic equipment know that its immediate erection, if deemed expedient, is by no means i mpos­ sible or i mp robable. The fact remains that those fortunate enough to attend Colby next year will h ave a new, modern, indoor athletic field to use, one that is as perfect i n every detai l as is possible. It is a great step for­ ward ; a step that all connected with Colby have worked for for years. It means that now Colby is fitted to give every emphasis needed to the physic­ al side of education. No longer will Colby teams be handicapped in their training ; no longer will Colby men be ashamed of the athletic equipment of their college. The entire athletic equ ipment of the college is not com­ plete or perfect as yet, but that will follow when present plans are matured. It i s enough for the present to know that when the time comes Colby can, and will, have the athletic equipment that is as good, if not better than that of any other college of its size.

The Student League of the Colby Women's D ivision was founded and given active powers by the faculty in 1 922. The object of the League is to regulate order and decorum among the women in the college dormitories and in the C ity of Waterville. All women who register at Colby are mem­ bers. Besides the active officers, it has an executive board consisting of Dean Nettie R unnals, Margaret Hale, Doris Spencer, Jennie Dunn, and a representative from each of the four classes. The Student League has, besides its other meetings, two regular meet­ ing a year, one in the spring and one in the fall to read the constitution and to make amendments. Mass meetings are called by the president when­ ever needed. One hundred fifty-eight

mehating weam THE CROSS-COUN TRY DEBATING TRIP On the morning of Friday, March 28, the Colby College debating team, consisting of Norman D . Palmer, '30, of Hinkley ; F. Donald Poulin, '31, of Fairfield ; and H arold F. Lemoine, '32, of Kennebunk, started on a twelve day cross-country trip, during which time its members passed through twelve different states and travelled about 4,000 miles. The three men travelled directly to Wichita, Kansas, where they par­ ticipated in the National P i Kappa Delta convention held i n that c ity from March 31 to April 4. Pi Kappa Delta is the national honorary forensic society and his a very large membership among the colleges in the mid­ west. The Colby men represented the Maine Alpha Chapter, the eastern­ most branch of this national organization, and bcause of this fact they obtained an unusual amount of desirable publicity. One hundred sixty

At the convention 572 delegates, both men and women, representing 125 colleges and 28 states were i n attendance. The headquarters were in the B roadview h otel, one of K ansas' fi nest hostelries ; in addition, m any contests were held on the campus of Wichita University, about four m iles from the hotel. D u r ing the five days of the convention , the Colby dele­ gates had the opportunity of meeting and fraternizing with many of the delegates from other colleges and u n iversities throughout the country, and with most of the national officers of P i Kappa Delta. The C olby men took part i n five debates at this gathering and were victorious i n three of them . Upholding the negative side of the disarma­ ment question they defeated O livet and Georgetown, taking the affirm­ ative of the same proposition they eliminated D ubuque and lost to Mon­ mouth and A ugustana, both of which qualified for the semi-finals. Be­ sides participating i n the debating contest, Palmer represented Colby in the oratorical contest and Lemoine i n the extempore speaking contest, in which the speakers were limited to some phase of the general s ubj ect of "College Athletics. " T h e convention closed with a banquet on Friday evening, A p r i l 4 . T h e following morning t h e team arrived i n S t . Louis and immediately proceeded on a pilgrimage to A lton, Ohio, where they v isited the beauti­ ful monument erected to the memory of E lijah Parish Lovej oy, the fam­ ous abolitionist and m artyr to the cause of the fre€dom of the press, a graduate of Colby in the class of 1826. Saturday evening the Colby debaters met the St. Louis University team, one of the strongest i n the m id-west. The Colby team was defeat­ ed by a 2 to 1 vote of the j udges, although a vote of the audience showed practically an even decision. After v isiting some of the i nteresting places in St. Louis with Mr. A rthur Merriam, a graduate of Colby, whose home is in Clayton, Mo., the three Colby representatives left St. Louis S unday morning for New York, where they arrived e arly Monday afternoon. There they were met by Mr. Warren E dm unds, '22, and during their brief stay they were royally en­ tertained by a gro u p of Colby Alumni. That evening the men engaged i n the last forensic contest of the trip when they met the debaters of the College of the C ity of New York, i n a non-decision debate. Immediately afterwards they left New York for Waterville, arriving there at 9 : 1 0 P . M . o n Tuesday evening, April 8. Here, to use the words of the Colby "Echo," "a tremendous welcome was given the debaters as the train p ulled i nto the station, w ith a l arge percentage of the student body on hand to meet their c ross-country representatives who spread the name of Colby throughout the middle-west i n the best piece of a dvertising that the colNORMA N D . PAL M ER. lege has promoted i n many years." O n e hundred sixty-O?te

1£hitorial A nother year has passed, and still another ORACLE has been pub­ lished, containing i n its pages a chronicle of the epoch-making events of the past year . It has been the wish and effort of every member of the ORACLE B oard to present i n these pages a picture of the year j ust gone by. The following i s but a summary of what we believe to be the o utstanding events of the year 1929-30. I n other pages of this book we have presented briefly a picture of our newest building, the m uc h hoped-for and longed-for indoor field. At the time that the ORACLE went to press this building was rapidly approaching completion after many heart-rending delays. In the future it will serve a great cause, that of building u p the physical being of American manhood. Another development has been the completion of the remodeling of the basement i n Memorial Hall for the use of the l ibrary. The college now has adequate shelf space for the vast amount of periodicals which are necessary for the completion of the library c u rricula. The l ibrary is now large enough to meet the needs of the students of the college ; it i s being handled effici ently ; every effort is being made to get the books that are needed, for study and for recreation ; and, i n fact, Colby has a library at last that is a credit to the i nstitution. The college has finished its first year under a new administration a n administration t h a t has b e e n kindly, y e t forceful, o n e that ha striven constantly to push the needs of Colby in the fore and to s ubmerge the fancied needs of the selfish individual. D uring the year, rumors of strange happenings and possibilities have been persistantly heard. Some of them have become fact, others have disapp_e ared, and still others continue to be heard. N o one tho u ght that there would ever be compulsory chapel, yet that has come to pass, and many of the scoffers, the writer being one, have come to realize the need of such an i nstitution and the good that it has already accomplished. The administration has also been responsible for the passage of the ruling that i n the future, freshmen shall l i ve only i n college dormitories. This i s the beginning of a new era. The fraternity system at Colby has always been distasteful, n ot that the fraternities themselves are unpalat­ able, but that the method of rushing has always been obnoxious. In the fall of 1928 a n effort was made by five of the fraternities to put a stop to premature rushing. This failed mainly because there was no cohesive or binding factor to hold the parties of the agreement together . O n e of the agreeing bod ies broke the pledge and all the others r ushed, helter-skelter, o n the h u nt for new men, pledging them indiscriminately, never stopping to think whether the men pledged were the r ight ones for that particular group or not. The new freshman ruling should make the new men more cautious about a cc epting bids and should m ake the fraternities more care­ ful i n their selections. Both will be benefited thereby and the ground will One hundred seventy-three

be broken for a set of uniform, re ponsible ru hing rules for all fraternal bodies of the college. This plan has been worked succe fully and advan­ tageously elsewhere ; Colby needs it ; the admini tration seems to realize this need ; it will come to Colby. There have been other events during the year that pre age a new and even greater awakening for the cultural life of the college. D uring the year three musicians of note have been brought to Waterville under the auspices of the college, wh� have given fine programs to the delight of Rtudents and towns-people alike. Lecturers and readers have also ap­ peared before college aud iences who are of national and i nternational repute. These facts, in themselve , seem to have awakened the sleeping c ultural spirit of Colby o that a fine glee club concert was given by the combined clubs and the debating team wa sent on a 4,000 mile trip. These things show that Colby is not the "sleepy little college on the banks of the Kennebec" that some critic ha called it. And more is to come. About the first of January a new office wa created at the college. In Roberts Hall a spare room wa fitted out with office furni hings and the " Publicity" office was a fact. This office has been given com plete control over all releases of Colby news to the press. In thi way the publicity of the college has become organized and definite end can be reached. These ends are as yet uncertain, but it is common knowledge that efforts are being made to have the college moved to a cleaner, more wholesome and more desirable site. To those of us who have spent four years between the sulfur smoke of the factory and the moke of the trains, it seems a dream, yet we realize men of vision, of action and of foresight are in earnest in thei r desire to make such a move possible. If it is possible to accomplish this, then it will be accomplished. The idea is growing and gaining impetus each day. To some of us it almost approaches a certain­ ty. Let us hope that it is. Still another year, then, has passed us by, and a new college year is almost upon those who are left behind. As the events of the year pass in review, nothing startling or of heroic nature appears on the surface, but underneath there is that sure gathering of power which is to carry Colby to undreamed heights. It is a happy thought that perhaps, in some small way, we have contributed to this stead y progress ; that we have not been a dead weight to hold back the college we love. We are sure now of her greatness yet wish for further greatness. We are not afraid of the future that is before Colby, but rather do we welcome it with open arms, sure that she will triumph and carry on, always adhering to her m ission, that of serving, educating and preparing for life all those who enter her portals.

i;onor �tuhrnts For the first time Colby is this year conducting an experiment to test the value of giving increased freedom to superior students. O u r experi­ ment deals not with so-called honors courses, nor with comprehensive examinations, nor with reading periods, although these three devices are commonly used in many colleges. The purpose of the Colby experiment is not so m uch to give opportunity for freer activity to chosen students as it is to test the value of such freedom as a college policy. The Colby facul­ ty is seeking to learn whether b etter intellectual results are attained by a su perior student under more mature guidance and control by instructors, or under p u rely voluntary personal control. For this experiment the faculty has chosen two men and two women of the senior clas . During the second semester these four students were freed from all regulations concerning courses with the exception of any courses necessary to complete r eq uirements for maj or subj ect or estab­ lished groups. They have been permitted to spend the semester in any wa y they see fit reporting regularly to the Dean of Men and Women, who respectively have charge of the men and women selected for the honor. They could devote their time to a particular proj ect, they could do system­ atic or desultory reading, they could attend as auditor any class in c ol­ lege, they could visit other colleges-in fact no restriction whatever has been placed on the ort of work they m ight choose to do. The test of the value of the plan i s made in three ways. The opinion of the Dean , based on their regular conferences with the students ; the opinion of the professor under whom the student has been taking his maj or s ubj ct and with whom he keeps in close c ontact while pursuing his independent honors work ; and most im portant of all, a detailed statement filed by the student on J une first, telling j ust how he has spent the semes­ ter and what value he thinks he has obtained. The four students selected for the experiment were Norman D. Palmer of H inkley, Philip S . E ither of Linneus, Marga ret P . Hale of Cari­ bou, and Lucile N. Whitcomb of Farmingt on. E. C.

(!! n lbt( s �rrat �ift Out of as clear a sky a ever there was, Colby has received the magnifi­ cent sum of 500,000. So far as i known, no living soul, apart from the donor him elf and his lawyer, knew that such a gift was to come to Colby. No hint had ever been made by him to any one of his close friends in Water­ ville that he proposed to leave a ingle dollar to the College. The gift comes from Frank A . Champlin, son of James Tift Champlin, the seventh president of the College. Mr. Champlin died in Long Beach, Cal . , on July 10, 1 929. The son was never a student in the college and has never had an y connection with the college, officially or otherwise. The gift is prompted by no other motive than that of honoring his distinguished father who once stood at the head of the institution. The legacy consists of a highly valued stock the proceeds from the sale of which through the brokerage firm of Lee, Higginson & Co., will eventually reach the college till. It was Mr. Champlin's custom for a great many years to make an annual trip to Maine. He owned a small cottage at North Pond in Smith­ field, and here he was wont, to spend a good part of each summer. He entertained little, lived in a manner that bespoke penury, and watched care­ fully the matter of minor expenditures. He was a most delightful com­ panion, however, and counted among his friends a number of Waterville business men. In his early life, Mr. Champlin was associated with relatives in the management of the Twitchell, Champlin Co., a well known distributing agency. His disposition was not one easy to get on with, and after some years h2 was given the sum of $40,000 to withdraw from the company. He then went to Salt Lake City where he invested his money in a gas com­ pany and realized well on the investment. At some time during his life he turned to Lee, H igginson & Co., brokers, and this firm has had much to do with the steady accumulation of his wealth. He invested early in the Gold Dust Corporation and the rise i n value of this stock made him of i ndependent means. His nearest living relatives are Dr. Thomas J . Burrage and Champlin B urrage, of Portland, nephews, the sons of his sister Caroline, and Mary Champlin, of Portland, niece, daughter of his brother, A ugustus. Such in brief is the life story of the man who has added a half m i l­ lion dollars to the permanent endowment of the college.

:!irtt' 11 Qlolby Nigqt Colb y N i ght, the annual occasion for glad reunion of old friends and alumni, was celebrated with all the traditional enthusiasm and inspiring speeches. The program under the chairmanship of President Johnson featured the return of Paul "Ginger" Fraser and six others of his famous 1 9 1 4 championship team. Bad weather failed to lower the attendance and this was the largest Colby N ight i n the history of the college. The speak­ ers included : John F. Choate, '14, who presented a bass drum to the Colby Band as a gift of the Rotarians ; Mayor F. Harold Dubord, ' 14, who wel­ comed the a ud ience on behalf of the c ity of Waterville ; Dr. J . Frederick Hill, president of the Alumni Association ; Principal Ralph H . H unt of Hebron Academy ; Harry F . Jordan of Philadelphia, newly appointed trustee ; Dean Marriner, who enlivened the assembly with a poem about " The B ig B lack B ear and The Little White Mule" ; Ralph Good of Port­ land of the class of 1 9 1 0 and captai n of the Colb y team for two years ; Paul F. " Ginger" F raser, who presented six of the 1 9 1 4 championship team and requested the gathering to pay silent tribute to "Chick" Fraser and Ross Stanwood, recently deceased members ; Captai n John "Red" Lee ; Coach E dward C. Roundy ; and finally Clayton K. B rooks, '98, three times captain of a Colby tea m . After such stirring speeches, " Chef" Weymouth's feed certainly tasted fine.

The annual Women 's Colby N ight was held for the first time in the new Alumnae building on Friday evening, November 1, 1929. The visit­ ors and the undergraduate bodies were enthusiastic over the splendid gymnasium which represents the untiring and loyal efforts of the Alumnae and their friends. Dean Runnals, in her speech of welcome, gave a brilliant account of the first Colby N ight of the Women's Divi ion. Mrs. Helen H . Hill, '97, represented the Alumnae in a speech describ­ ing her experiences abroad during the past summer. The m usic for the evening was furnished by a trio composed of Viola Rowe, '32, piano ; Liane Rancourt, '32, cello ; and Marian Morrel, '32, violin. The class speakers were the following : Barbara Taylor, representing the seniors ; Doris Spencer, the j uniors ; Eleanor Rogers, the sophomores ; and Carola Loos, the freshmen. The beautiful fantastic play, "The Maker of Dreams, " was a perfect ending to the evening's entertainment. The following c ast presented the play : Pierrot Pierette Maker of Dreams
