Junior Class History We have now pa sed through th ree fru itful y·ear as student at Colby. I t is with a feeli n g of sat isfaction that w e look back along the way at those things which we have already accompli hed, and it i s with h i gh anticipation that we look forward to our one remaining y·ear at Colby. We m i ght well be compared with the seed which the farmer plant i n the spring. As Freshmen we were strewn over the ground entirely at the mercy of the elements, the upper classmen. Little did they realize our great potential strength and power. Then as Sophomores we took root and slowly grew, being n u rtured by the beneficial atmosphere ·Of Colby. Now as J un i ors we have nearly comp leted o u r growt h and i t is a fervant h o pe that next year we will b lossom out into that type of men that will cherish and hold h i gh the i deals and traditions of Colby.

Carrying out to its full realization a prophecy which was made whe n they first entered these h istoric halls, that the class of 1 933 would be one ·of the most outstanding classes that Colby has ever known, the girls have come through the Jun ior year with flying colors. ally, and socially we have led on the campus.

Scholastically, athletic­

We are found in the front

ranks of all the activities of the college, participating with energy and en­ thusiasm in any proj ect which calls for our assistance. So now we are ready to start the last year of our college career with the knowledge that the prophecy was not made in vain.

Sophomore Class History We of th e Cla s of Nineteen Thirty-four are e ry modest. It has never been o u r habit to boast of our doings. Yet w e cannot avoid a feeling of honest pride i n our record d uring the p ast two years. I t would b e j ust to say that seldom, if ever, in the h istory of the college has a class of such exceptional abilities entered the doors of Colby. The C lass of 1 9 3 4 has obtained potential knowledge of how to do and how not to do acts of kind­ n ess and deeds of mercy to the Freshman Class and we have applied this knowledge to the end of the present good of the Freshmen, and the future good of the col lege. W e h a' e now r·e ached the second milestone of college life. W e look back and re .iew with pardonable pride and satisfaction the p rogress of our coUege life, and feel sure, on looking ahead, that w e are now ready to take u p the d uties of the Junior Class.

Class of O u r Freshman days are gone.

19 34

After a year o f class assoc iation with

Colby. we have become intimate with her ways.

W·e take pride in her past

achievements ; we share i n her present anxieties and her ambitions and dreams for the futur·e.

On one hand, we are entrusted with her old and

respected traditions ; on the other, ·we are confronted by the various demands of the changing att itude of changing times.

It is our hope, thai

the women 's class of 1 9 34 may be remembered in the coming years

as a

contributer in a very full measure to the preservation of all that is rinest in Colby and as

.Vinety-two

a

potent force in the realization of her dearest dreams .

Fresh man Class History It would not be original to say that the Class of 1 935 expects to be the finest .ever produced at Colby ; it would not be credible to say that we shall make the very best of the opportunities that Colby offers ; and it would noi be believable to say that we appreciate our experiences at the hands of the Sophomores.

Nevertheless, we do say these things and try to mean them

all. As students at Colby , we shall try to make ourselves a credit to our class, to m ake our class a credit to Colby, and to make Colby a credit to the world.

Freshman Class Histor y The time we h ave spent at Colby h as been compariti vely short b ut al­ ready we h ave made ours.elves at h ome in the new surroundings.

The wel­

1a

welcome.

We h ave learned to l ove the coUeg·e even in so short a time.

The evi­

Early Societies at Colb y The L iterary F rate rn ity as instituted in 1824 and inc orporiated in 1827. Its obj ect was training of the young m en of the college i n d3bate and c om­ p o ition.

We·ekly m e eti ngs were conducted with great success.

The usual

program consisted of a disertation, a d ebate, and a "literary c rit ique. "

A

valuable l ibrary was c ollected by means of fees and assessments upon its members . l iterary

With the r ise of the Gr·eek l ett.er societies, the i nterest i n the

oc ieties declined.

The Literary Fraternity held its last session i n

rn78. The " E rasaphian A delph i , " a

oci·ety s i m i l a r in nature to the L iterary

Fraternity, was i ncorporated i n 1836. It also b uilt up a considerable l ibrary. It cea ed to exist in 1 8 7 6 . A friendly rivalry between t h e t w o l iterary societies i nc r-ea ed the interest i n thei r d ebates.

They united in c ommencement day. Upon dis­

ban d i n g they turned their b ooks O\'·er to the college library, which was thus i ncre.ased by about 2000 volu mes.

Football Review Although the percentage record of games won and lost was nothing to bring j oy to the heart of Colby sup­ porters the exhibitions given by the 1 93 1 edition of the White Mule eleven drew m uch praise and admiration. At the opening of the season the fi rst week in September, a large squad re­ ported to Coach Roundy, but the ma­ j or ity of the candidates were small and very few of them had had any previous varsity experience. The two weeks of pre-season workouts and i n fact the whole pre-Series sea­ son saw no hopes of a Colby triumph in the State of Maine classic. I n the opening tilt aga inst Brown at Providence Colby displayed a great brand of football only to be overpowered by the Bruno 22-0. Lack of reserves caused the Mules to CAPTAIN " MbsE" J O HNSTONE be trounc€d 33-0 by Springfiel d the following week. The last game before the Series saw Colby barely eke out a 6 to 0 win over Vermont at B u rlington. This game was played entirely in the rain and Captain J ohnstone and his mates were unable to open up with any op·en football. The State's Series opened Oct. 24, with Colby j ou rneying to B r u nswick to tackle the B owdoin Polar B ears in what was the feature of the season from a Colby standpoint as the White M ules €merged from the fray with a 32 to 6 victory. For the first time Oolby really looked l ike a real foot­ ball team and with J i m Peabody and Paddy Davan clicking off long r uns behind perfect i nterference the M ules rolled up two touchdowns in the fi rst period and pushed over thr€e m o re i n the third quarter to complete t h e Bow­ doin rout. The Colby line opened b i g holes in t h e Polar B e a r forward wall time after time to give Coach Roun­ dy's backs a clear shot i n the secondCAPTAIN-ELECT " B OB" VIOLETTE One h u ndred forty-fi1Je

ary and the goal l ine. Bill D exter, Brit Webster, B i l l Crabtree and Mal Wilson all had big days in the line and time after time Peabody, Da an and J oh nstone went crashing thr ough holes that they o pened . O n the d e·· fense the whole Colby forward l ine was u nbeatable and Bowdoin was able to score only when Coach R oundy had relieved his regulars l ate in the first half. After the smashing v ictory over B owdoin the M ules had great h opes of defeating the highly touted Maine outfit which had overcome B ates by a 9 to 6 c ount the previous week, and for the first half Capta i n Johnstone and his mates gave the wearers of the Pale B lue a m erry chase. Al­ though outrushed, Colby rallied o n " JI M " PEABODY the goal l i n e to hold Maine scoreless for the first two periods. D uring this t i me the B l ue and G ray had but one scoring chance and a fi ghting Maine team held for downs to a vert the Colby score. Maine came back strong in the third period and o n some fine runs by Favor and Robertshaw the p ig­ skin was l u gged 50 yards w ith Rob­ ertshaw going over for the first of his three touchdowns. Maine went right back t o w ork after Colby had car­ ried the ball into the Pale B l u e terri­ tory and after a m arch of 7 7 yards Robertshaw scored the second Maine touchdown on an 1 8-yard r u n . I n t h e fourth period C olby opened u p with a fine passing attack with Foley d oi n g the tossing and S tan H er­ sey on the receiving end m ost of the time. Hersey was d owned o n the three-yard line after a nice catch and Bob Violette crashed through the l ine for the score. After taking the ball o n downs Colby started a nother scoring d rive, but the ball was l ost on downs in Maine territory and the B lack B ear had punch enough l eft t o come b a c k u p t he fi e l d to score again " BILL" CRABTREE making the final score 19 to 7. One hundred fortµ-seven


Pete Valicenti, midget B a t e s quarterback, proved the tumbl ing block for Colb the econd itme in his gridiron career when he made the dro p-kick that gave Bate a 7 t o 6 win o er Colby in the Annual Armis­ tice Day battle which took place on Seavern Field. V.alicenti booted the pig kin between the u pright two years ago to take a State Championhip from the B l ue and Gray and this yea r he repeated to give the Garnet the econd place berth in the stand­ ing. An eighty-yard ru n-back by Cap­ tain John tone from kickoff was the outstanding feature of this game " PADDY" DAYAN from a Colby standpoint, but there were everal other men who played exceptionally good football . A mong these wa Warren Malcolm, a sophomore. who went in a an end in the second period and dropped Bate backs several times for big l osses. B ill Crabtree, Bill D exter, Brit Webster, Roger Draper, and Doug Allen all made impre ive howing in their final gam e for Colby. B y winning from B owdoin and lo ing to Maine and Bate , Colby had to be content with third place in the Series wh ich aw Maine at the top and Bowdoin in the cellar.

Baseball Summary At the start of the season the o utlook for baseball i n the spring of 1 9 3 1 was gloomy, b ut the Colby White Mules, under the d irection of Coach Eddie Roundy, enj oyed one of the mo t prosperous seasons that a Colby team has had i n the pa t few y¡e ars.

The Blue and Gray went through

a

strenuous fourteen-game schedule with nine wins against five defeats and ended the season in a tie with Maine for the sun berth i n the State Series. Colby opened the season by def eating Maine 4-3 with Mansfield on the mound.

The n ext game aw the M ules snow B owdoin under by the score

of 1 3-6. The following week Colby entrai ned for their annual Massachusetts t r i p and the highlight of the season came i n the first game when Colby defeated a h ighly-touted Harvard team 9-7 at Cambridge.

Colby played

consistently good ball throughout and won out m a i nly through bunching h its off Mc H ale, H a rvard ace, a lthough the Crimson infield booted the ball around at crucial moments.

The following day Colby registered another

win, sinking N ortheastern 8-7, while the last day of the trip saw the Mules edged 2-0 b y New Hampshire. Colby returned to the home ball yard and defeated B ates 4-3 i n a 1 4inning thriller.

Colby then lost first to B owdoin 5 to 4, then to B ates 2 - 1 ,

before returning to t h e win column b y downing Bates 1 0-5. a complete route over Bowdoin 1 3-0. 14-12 and 4-3.

After scoring

Colby lost two close ones to Maine

The last defeat enabled Maine to tie Colby for the state

championship . All i n a l l Colby h a d a very successful

eason w i t h t h e tying f o r the

State Series Championship and the win over Harvard as the outstanding features.

Coach Roundy presented a well-balanced team with Heddericg

catching, Roberts, Mansfield and Farnham pitching, Plummer, Ferguson, Davan and Deetj en in the i n field, and the o utfield was covered by Lovett, D onovan and McNamara.

Hockey For the first time in the history of the college, Colby won the State Championship in hockey. Captain Mal Wilson led the sm ooth clicking puck­ sters to the top position of the State. The team wa undefeated in the series winning from Bowdoin ithree times and twice from Bates, the fi rst game wiith Bates ending in a tie score. . H il ton and H ucke teamed tog-et her to make a very strong defense i n front o f "Bob" Violette, the sen ational net guardian. The forward line was composed of Ross at left wing, W ilson at center, and Pomerleau and R obitaille at right wing. The team was not only outstanding in the State of Maine, but outstand­ ing amongst the sma11 c olleges of New England as they lost only one game and this one to rthe strong Northeastern s-e �tet. Not enough praise can be given to Bill Millett, whose coaching ability led the white m ules to this brilliant season.

Freshman Football This pa t year the Fre hman team had a very successful season under the tutelag·e of "Bill" Millett, who initiated the yearlings into the my teries of Collegiate football tactic . Every afternoon found the Freshmen on the field learn ing the plays of Colby's comp.etitors and occasionally scrimmag­ ing with the varsity. The training which these men have received will be invaluable to them in the future. The team was made up of men from all over New England all of whom have creditable record and who will l>e the mainstays on Colby's outstand­ ing teams of years to come . Winning a maj ority of games, the Freshmen have established a pre0edent for following teams to attain. SC HF.Dl LE B ucksport ( away ) , 1 2 ; Colby F rosh, 0

Freshman Baseball The Freshman Bas·ehall Club of 1 9 3 1 , although weak in the pitching department, succeeded i n winning more than half of the games on the schedule. At times the team presented massive strength. As S·OOn as a good player was developed, he was i mmediately advanced to the varsity. This accounts for the fluc.tu ation of power. Coach "Bill" M iUeitt again showed his versatility as a mentor and d eserves prais·e for his accomplish­ ments with the Freshmen. There were many outstanding men on the team and home runs became a fad. Before the end o f the season, the team reached a h i gh degree of per­ fec.tion, thus developing i nto excellent varsity m aterial for the future.

Tennis Cavta in-M a nnger, ROBERT ALLEN

A lthough handicapped by poor training conditions the tennis team was able to make a good showing for the college. Colby defeated Boston Col­ leg.e 4-3. The second match was played against Bates and ended in a 3-3 tie. The U. of Maine defeated Colby 5-4. The Vermont game was called off because of rain as was the Tufts match after the score stood 1 - 1 . T h e team was represented in the N ¡e w E ngland Intercollegiate matches and also in the Staite I ntercollegiate m atches. Captain Allen was defeated in the semi-finals in the singl es of the State matches and Allen and T aylor were able to reach the final round in the doubles before being defeated.

Editorial With the passing of another year the O RACLE B oard again has dili­ gently attempted t o sum u p i n a few pages the events of the year. We fully believe that the t urning point in the history of this college has been · reached this year and that this institution is now gathering up momentum and driving toward the new and bett€r Colby. We all realize the tremen­ dous task that confronts the leaders of this college, but we are aware also that the courage and persistency of these same leaders will make Colby one of the leading small colleges of the country. Colby N i ght last Fall was celebrated simultaneously i n nine diff€ rent states. The program was broadcasted from the Colby Gym to the far cor­ ners of the countr� . When the Taylor gift was announced by President Johnson a wild demonstration followed showing the intense feeling and the love of college of both alumni and u ndergraduates that those present will never forget. What obj ects could not be overcome by such intense feeling for one's college ? Many c ha nges have taken place on the old cam pus this year. The col­ lege selected Cecil Goddard as the first full-time alumni secretary of the institution. We feel sure that Mr. Goddard's dym.mi c pers.onality will bring the alumni ever closer to the college than they ever have been before. John White 'Thomas was chosen as our first director of m usic. Mr. Thomas has performed admirably and we now boast of m usical teams that compare with the best. Not too much praise can be given to our coaches for the teams they produced this past year. Coach Roundy's smooth-working baseball nine tied for the state championship last spring besides winning their annual game with H a rvard. Coach Millet's hockey team went through the state series u ndefeated this winter and brough t the first hockey championship to Colby while Coach Ryan's p u pils gave some very brilliant performances at the vario u s track meets i n B oston and New York. For all the success of the past year , the class of n ineteen h undred and thirty-two l ooks forward to the time when th€y will return for Colby N i ght a t Mayflower H i l l . T h e O RACLE B oard wishes t o thank Mr. Smith a n d Professors E u stis and Libby for their helpful aid and s uggestions that have proven invalu­ able. The E d itor is indeed grateful to his associates for their prompt and willing work.

Men's Colby Night On Friday night, October thirtieth, the old gym rocked and swayed with the speeches, songs, and cheer

of over eight hundred men of Colby

who came from far and near to partici pate in the activities of Colby Night. I t was a Colby Night unparall eled for its enthusiasm in the hist ory of the college. It was a nation-wide affair.

In the first place the program at the gym

was broadcasted by WLB Z , and it wa a huge success.

Then at the same

time groups in cities all over the country were observing the occasion i n a fitting manner. N eal D . Leonard, president of the Colby Alumni Assocaition acted as presiding officer.

The meeting wa

appropriately

tarted by the Colby Speches b y H . C .

Band marching into the gym playing "On To Victory . "

Marden, county attorney, and Herbert D . Wadsworth, chairman of the B oard of Trustees were well received by those present.

Clayton Brooks,

'98, then told of the Colby spirit which urged the football teams on to vic­ tory i n his day. Colby then went on the air, the Band playing the " Colby Marching Song."

Captain "Mose" Johnstone and Coach Roundy expressed their

opinion that the team would be out on the gridiron the next day fighting to their utmost.

The crowd roared its approval when Leonard Mayo, '22,

stepped to the m ike and imitating Graham McNamee, gave his interpreta­ tion of the game that would be played the next day.

Congressman John

E . Nelson in a fine talk pointed out how the hard knocks received in foot­ ball conditioned one for those he would receive after leaving college. The final speech was delivered by President Johnson and the cheering which followed his announcement of the quarter of a million dollar gift by Dr. J ulian Taylor will long be remembered by those who were present and by those who were listening in. The evening's program ended with an appetizing lunch put u p by none other than "Chef" Weymouth .

Women's Colby Night After a forma l dinner at Foss Hall on Friday evening, the women's division gathered i n the Alumnae B uilding to celebrate their part of Colby N ight. B arbara A . Sherman, '32, was the chairman of the program which opened with the play, " Insomnia," presented by the dramatic art class and directed by Professor Cecil A . Rollins. The cast of the play was as follows : The E go Melody . C uriosity Memory Conscience Hope Fear Life Force N erves

Martha Johnston, Marian A . Lewis, . Ruth Nadeau , Rebecca Chester, L iane Rancour� Gwendolyn G. Mardin, Charlotte L . B l omfield, . Tina C . Thompson, r Margaret E. Adams, i Louise C . Smith, '33 l Lucile B lanchard, '32

I mmediately following the play, D ean N inetta Runnals i ntroduced the guest speaker of the evening, Mrs. S uzanne Steele, 6f the c lass of 1908, who is a n oted radio star. Mrs. Steele captivated the audience by her charming a p pearance, delightful vivacity, and great dramatic abil ity. lfur varied readings were concluded by an original one entitled "Losin' Susan . " D uring i ntermission, i n the spirit o f true co-operation , t h e women were given the privilege of listening to speeches from the men's Colby N 'ight over the radio. President Johnson's announcement of the wonder­ ful gift from our beloved D r . J ulian D . Taylor was greeted with as m uc h acclamation from t h e women's d ivision as from t h e men's. A l l t h e women rose i n thanks to Dr. 'Taylor, and a lthough the world did not know it, j oined in the singing of Alma Mater. At the close of the radio program, E d ith C. Longlois, '34, accom­ panied by Anne C . N ivison, '33, played two ' cello solos. Mrs. Steele con­ tinued her readings, at the conclusion of which A lm a Mater was again sung, and the usual Colby N ight apples were distributed.

A New Campus for Old Colby C H A P T E R TWO * I

T

HE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF C O L BY COLLEGE, at their annual Comm ence­ ment m eeting on Friday afternoon, J une 1 2th, 193 1 , were confronted with a difficult problem . It was not so far-reaching, to be sure, as the problem which they had settled j ust one year ago, when they cast the die to move Colby College to a new and more adequate location as soon as it seemed feasible. Nor was there as m uch at stake as at their m eeting the previous November when they determined that the future Colby should be in Waterville, not A ugusta. N ow, h owever, they m u st decide whether the time had come to launch their endeavor to raise the necessary m i llions of dollars for the new proj ect. The trustees had before them a s urvey of the possibilities of raising this money, which had been made during the spring by Marts & Lundy, an organization specializing i n the d irection of financial campaigns for phil­ anthropic institutions. Members of this firm studied the h istory and present position of this college, analyzed its resources, and estimated the strength of the a ppeal of this u ndertaking. Their r eport concluded with the opinion that i t would be possible to raise 3 , 000,000. This sum would n ot construct the whole development as planned by the architect, but it would provide the b u i ldings n ec essary to carry on the college, with its present enrollment, on the new site. Certa i n "luxury b uildings" could wait until l ater and it was felt that the new i mpetus and public approval which this proj ect would give the college, would enable it to continue to solicit large ben efactions after the formal campaign had attained its obj ective and officially ended. To raise $3,000,000, however, would n ot be an easy task. Three or four years was the m i n i m u m period within which it could be accomplished. The report pointed out that such a proj ect was far b eyond the scope of anything undertaken i n the past history of the college and that it was out of the question to expect any l a r ge proportion of the n ecessary funds from the c i rcle of loyal Colby graduates and friends who had given so generously to Colby i n the past. Therefore, a large group of new benefactors m u st be found and their i nterest in Colby aroused, a process which would take time. *

The doubtful factor in the case as it a ppeared to the trustees lay i n t h e business situati o n . F o r t h e benefit of readers i n future years, it should be stated that during the last year and a half, this country had been i n the throes of one of the worst economic depressions in its history. Widespread u nemployment, falling prices, a demoralized stock market, frequent bank­ r u ptcies and bank failures, paralysis of foreign trade and uncertainty regarding the stability of the countries of E urope-all contributed to a general pessimism which seemed to make it a m ost i nopportune time for soliciting large gifts. O n the other hand, there was every reason to believe that this condi­ tion would not last indefinitely. I n fact, the trustees had obtained the v iews of several of the nation's foremost economic and business a uthori­ ties, and the consensus of these opinions was that the u pturn in b u si ness would take place by a utumn and prosperity would be with us within a year. S uch a turn of events would fit in very well with the proposed m oney­ raising program , ince it was not planned to do any solicitation u ntil after a few months had been spent in organization and public ity, and even then only c ertai n special prospects would be approached. In any case, an a ppeal to the alumni a nd general public would not be made until the second or third year, and by that time, there was every likel ihood that p rosperity would be again in full swing. A nother reason for going ahead with the program at this t ime was that the proj ect had a lready acquired considerable momentum. The deci­ sion to move the college, the Waterville-Augusta controversy, the gift of the Mayflower H i l l tract by the Waterville citizens, had each in turn received widespread newspaper attention and editorial comment. To stop all p rogress towards the goal at this time would mean that this enthusiasm would die down and have to b e revived all over again at some later date. If it were decided to go right ahead with the program , taking a chance o n t h e early return of prosperous times, all these gains could be conserved. A t the worst, if the depression conti n ue d for a year or two more, the pro­ gram could be suspended for a period and no more would be lost than would have been the case if the l a u nching of the campaign had been post­ poned. Such were the factors which the trustees pondered all that J une after­ noon . Finally a decision was reached : Colby College would forthwith inaugu rate a campaign for $3,000,000 ! " The situation calls for actio n , ' ' said P resident Johnson i n m a k i n g the announcement, "and the o n l y t i m e we h a v e is no w. Confident in t h e mission of this old college, we are de­ term ined to go forth aggressively and find the means to b u i l d a new campus for old Colby." O n e hundred ninety-one


From that day on, the Pre ident's phrase, "a new campus for old Colby, " became the slogan and name of the campaign. Not a "new Colby , ' ' for few people would favor any proj ect which implied the abandonment of the rich heritage of traditions and the academic standing which the old college had been building up for the last 1 1 3 years. A "new campu. ," yes, because buildings and equipment wear out and need to be replaced, but the old co1lege itself-the thread of life, the inheritance of ideal , the oul of Colby -could be expected to continue tronger and better nouri hed in a new shell. H ence : " New Campus for Old Colby." At the Commencement dinner on Monday, June 1 5th, President John­ son formally opened the drive with the announcement of the receipt of an unconditional gift of 1 00,000 from the Northern Baptist Convention. This -.vas one of the very few la rge contributions given by this organization to colleges which have not not been contingent upon the rai ing of a certain other sum from other source . The fact that the leader saw fit to pledge it to Colby without any strings how the confidence which they held in the successful outcome of the proj ect. This money could be used as far as necessary for the development of the campaign and the architectural work on the new buildings, and thus assured that all future contributions would be spent entirely upon the expenses of construction and beautification. As the President pointed out, money for the preli minary expenses, although vital, is always the mo t difficult to rai e and therefore this gift, coming as it did at the outset of the campaign, was particularly gratifying. Few people who were present at that dinner will ever forget the occa­ sion. After the a pplause had died down from the President's speech about the future Colby on Mayflower Hill, he read a letter from the Italian A mbassador paying tribute to Professor Julian D . Taylor for his 6 3 years _ of teaching the Latin language and l iterature and "moulding young minds to the elegant spirit of Mediterranean civilization ." Trustee William C. Crawford then gave an inimitable speech eulogizing D r . Taylor. As the beloved old professor arose, the whole gathering stood u p with him. H e choked, a n d made a brief reply that left few dry eyes in t h e room. It was an emotional climax. The President arose and said quietly t hat nothing further could be added to this occasion, and that the l lOth Commencement of Colby College had come to a close. The crowd filed slowly out. The incident concerns the narrative of the new campus proj ect in this way : the plans for the dinner exercises included as a fitting ending, the reading of a letter from the President of the United States to the President of Colby College congratulating him on the new proj ect. B ut . after the tribute to Dr. Taylor and his touching response, even this would have been One hundred ninety-two


an anti-climax. H ence, the letter was never r-ead, but for the sake of his­ tory, here it is : The W hite House, J une 3rd, 1 9 3 1 . My dear President Johnson : A devoted alumnus o f Colby h a s advised m e t ha t t h i s commencement of the College has special significance in that i t marks its relocation on a new and larger site on the outskirts of W aterville, which has been donated b y the city. I can a p p reciate there are pangs i n leaving a campus more than a century old, yet a new a n d modern p lant presents better and greater opportunity for con­ tinuing good work. A host of small colleges h ave made notable contributions to American life. I congratulate Colby on the larger service i t i s to render. Yours faithfully, ( Signed )

H E RB E RT H O O V E R .

II A s the alumni and friends arrived i n Waterville for Commencement, one of the first things which each wanted to do was to exami ne the new site. For this purpose, signs had been posted pointing the way to May­ flower H i l l from the c ity and pamphlets published giving d irections for seeing the location. I n order to show j ust where the various buildings would be placed, poles with different colored flags and n umbers were erected i n the proper places. H u ndreds of people visited Mayflower H i l l i n those f e w d a y s and invariably returned enthusiastic and inspired. With · fresh i nterest they stu died the plans of the campus layou t and sketches of certain build ings which were on d isplay at the college. Not everyone, h owever, realized the full significance of these attrac­ tive d rawings. This is almost the first i nstance where there has ever been an o pportunity to make a new and comprehensive plan for a whole new campus to house a n old established college. The architect would not b e hampered by t h e necessity o f working any o l d b u i ldings i nto his p l a n , while the size of the tract and the natural beauty of the site gives h i m free scope in designing his concept of an ideal small l iberal arts col lege. To a large extent, therefore, the success of the proj ect rests u pon the architect and after considerable investigation, the Colby trustees chose Jens Fredrick Larson of Hanover, N . H , as the man best qual ified to plan the new Colby. M r . Larson has specialized i n college arch itecture and O n e hundred ninety-three


won wide prai e for his treatment of the Baker Mem orial Library at Dart­ m outh. He is in charge of the whole Dartmouth development, as well as of ome other large college proj ects. He i the official advisory architect for the A ociation of American College . The new campu will be reached by a circular road which will tart as an extension of Gilman Street , pa ing over the Me alonskee Stream by what are known as the circu ground and on for ome distance where there is now a cou ntry lane. It will then wing around a great circle and lead back again towa rds Watervi lle, going through an underpa s beneath the Oakland branch of the railroad and j oining the County Road from Waterville near the Cedar Bridge. The campu will lie between thi city road and Mayflower Hill ; in general, being under the brow of the hill on the easterly and northern slope . The su mmit of the hill can be located by the Ob ervatory, which is in the upper left-hand corner of the architect' plan. The dom inating feature of the whole campu is to be the library building, which will be surm ounted by a beautiful tower some 1 80 feet in height. This focal point wi,ll be visible on the skyline for mile around. It will be illuminated at night by giant flood lights. The Library wiill stand at the center of the two axes of the campus layout. As seen from Waterville or from the circular drive, it will be at the head of a broad terraced lawn. On either side of this lawn will stand the principal classroom bu ildings. The gr1oup of three buildings on the left will house the liberal arts courses, such as literature, languages, history, economics, and the l ike, while the group on the right will contain the science labora­ tories and lecture halls. I n front and to the right of the Science Group may be seen the outline of the Auditorium. This is located do e to the road for the convenience of the large numbers of people from Waterville and other towns who will p rDb­ ably want to attend many of the affairs in th is hall. I n fact, the auditonium will probably be us.ed quite as much for conventions and civic affairs as for college functions. It will accomodate at least a thousand persons. D irectly opposite the entr£1.nce to the Auditorium and thus standing in central location between the men's and women's campuses, is the Adminis­ tration Building. This wi1ll house the offices of the Presi dent and his as­ sistants, Dean of M�n and Dean of W·omen ; Treasurer, Registrar, Super­ intendent of Maintenance, Alumni Office, Publicity D epartment, College Bo·oksfore and Post Office. a

The Women's College cons.ists of the group of buildings located on the plan at the left of the A d m inistration BU'ilding. The l arge central buildOne hundred ninety-four


i n g is the s•ocial and rec reational center for the women and will contain the gym n as i u m and swimming pool, as well as a few clas-s rooms for such cou rses as ar·e condu cted exclusively for women. N ear this will b e the girls' playing field. Flanking the social union are two pairs of dormitories. E ach will corntain its own dining room, but each pair will b e served from one kitchen. The small building situated i n the fork of the roads still further to the l eft is the President's house. By its location, it will seem to b e ready to welcom e any visitors who m i ght approach from that direction. The Chapel i· s situated on h i gher ground than the res.t of the c ampus and can b e seen directly to the l eft of the L ibrary. The id·ea is to have i t somewhat apart f r o m t h e busy daily life o f the college a n d serve as a re­ treat wher·e a t ruly religious atmosphere will preva. il. The fact that it is to ·b e o n a h ighe plane than the other b uildings has a c ertain symbolic value. ·

The b u i ld ings between the Chapel and L ibrary repr-esent extra c lass­ r ooms and p roi bably will n ot be constructed until some future time when the growth of the college m ay make th em necessary. The two long b ui l d i n gs in the rear 1of the L i b rary are freshman dormi­ tories. E ac h one will accommodate about 1 00 men i n double and single rooms. The view from the back of these buildings towards the west and north is exceptionally fine, the Ran geley mountains being plainly visjble. Tio the right of the L ibrary will be an open space sunounded by fra­

� ern.ity houses and the men's ·social union, thus forming a small campus by

itself. The Social Union is fo contain the eait ing q uariters for all the m en students, as well as r ecre ation rooms, offices of student organizations and the like.

The gymnasium and athletic fi·el ds may b e seen •on ithe plan to the right of the main campus of the college. The gymnasi um appears as the largest building i n the college, with the football and b ase.ball fields behind it. The ground in this section is fairly level and will requ i r·e comparaitively Httle gradi n g. The football fi el d is laid out n orth and south in order that the afternoon sun wll n ot hamper either team i n action. An interesting proj ect i's contemplated i n connection w ith the gymna­ sium. The central part of tthis structur·e will consist of the same i ndoor fi el d as now stands on the present C olby campus. This new b u ilding was oompl eted two years ago, 1b ut sinoe there was siome talk at that time of eventually m oving the c ollege, it was b u i lt i n such a way that a large part of i t could b e salvage d . The b u ilding c onsists of fou r low brick walls and an One hundred ninety-five


enormous roof, mostly of gla s, supporited on teel framework. These gird­ e rs were put together with bolts and nut , instead of being riveted, o that they could be taken down and u ed again in the new gymnasium. Since this steelwork, ogether with th e gla roofing, the ornamental stone work at the entrance, the interor net and other equi pment, con tituted a substan­ tial porition of the cosit of the pre ent Athletic B uilding, it will be seen that the u e of the e materials in the propo ed gymna ium will materially l ower the c ost of that structure. All :the college building will be of Colonial architecture, as it was thought that th is style would be most approp riate, constiderin g the old New E ngland traditions and the general atmo phere of the college. Brick is to be the principal structural material, since it i architecturally c orrect and, it i felt, will gi ve th e campus a warmer and more intimate feeling than i f stone were u ed. It i n ot generally realized j u st how much of a ta k it is to plan a col­ lege like this. The method i not to draw the pictures of a lot of bu ildings and then to figure out the best way to use the pace in them,. On the con­ trary, the first step has been to work out with great care all the various functions of � l iberal arts college ; then to design rooms which will assist in the carrying out of these functions as perfectly as possible ; and, finally, to house these gro� ps of rooms in an ·efficient and attractive manner. In order to accomplish thi work, various comm ittees 1of the faculty and ·other member<: of th e staff h ave been holding frequent meetings by themseh es and in conference wi,t h Mr. Lanson and Mr. Thomas Tash, his e ngineer. Studies have been made of the best equipment in other institu­ tions in the country and uggestions received from ·experts in every field. In fact, no stone has been left untu rned in the effort to make these build­ ings repres·ent the laist word in educational equipment. In all of rthis planning, special attention has been paid to c harting the p robable course of education in the future. Pr·esent trends are being care­ fully ana lyzed so th at the eio llege will be able to keep in the forefront of educational practice. For example, the c lassroom b uildings are not of the type which one usually sees today, c onsisting almost entirely of lecture halls. I nstead, only the first floor of each building w i l l contain recitation rooms, while the second fi.oor will be devoted fo offices for the faculty members of that de­ partment, seminar and confer.ence rooms and a large lounge mom with fireplace, book shel ves and reading fables supplied with periodicals devoted to the 1 subj ·ects which are taught in that building. The obj ecit is not merely to provide su i.table space f or the formal lectur·es and c l ass recitations, but One hundred ninety-six


to promote informal contacts between students and faculty m embers. I t i s beginning to be realized that i n s u c h informal i ntercourse between profes­ sors and students lie some of the most valuable elements in the educational p rocess and the new Colby b uildings are designed with that i n v iew. A s P resident Johnson has often pointed out, b u il dings, grounds and other material equipment are not the chief things in a college. Yet they are i m p ortant educational tools and Colby College, which has for the l ast 1 1 3 years been building up the other factors which go to m ake a giood col­ lege, n ow propos·es to provide itself with a new and m odern set of tools which will p ermit it to make a sW.l greater contribution to h i gher e d uca­ tion in the State of Ma:ine d u ring the n ext century.

III D uring the summer, the fi r1sit steps were taken towards organizing the $3,000,000 p r ogram. S ince ev2ry square inch of fl oor space on the campus w as being used for some academic p u rpose, it was necessary to establ ish headquarters elsewhere and office space was found in the Savings B an k B u ilding i n t h e c ity. I n charge of t h i s , as the resident director, w a s Floyd C . Freeman, a member of ithe firm of Marts & L undy. The work of this office w as to assemble and catal·og the vast amount of information about p ossible fut u r·e p rospects, prepare and distribute l iterature, organize com­ m ittees, group meetings and the like, and serve as a general headquarters for all affairs c onnec ted with the campaign. The college publicity department was also m oved do·wn to this office, since a large part of the work of the publicity director from now o n would b e in ithe i nterests of the campaign. The c-o llege iah;o employed a Field S·e cretary, Charles C . M iles, who began a thoro u gh canvass of .the state ob­ taining information about p rospective givers, both Maine citizens and s u mm e r residents. O ne fundamental step was ito organize the strength of the college i nto effective committees. The authority f.o r the whole p roj ect was vested in a special committee of the trustees, consisting of P resident Fi-anklin W . Johnson, F r a n k W . P adelford, Charles F . T . S eaverns, H erbert E . Wads­ w orth , Walter S . Wyman, George G. Av.erill and H enry H. H ilton. This committee gave oareful thought to the p os.ts of l eadership and o n J uly 8th, it was announced that Mr. Wyman had accepted the position of General Chairma n for the pi-ogram. M r. W adsworth, as chairman of the B oard of Ti-ustees, was n amed E xecutive Chairman. Dr. Aiverill headed the special O ne h?Lndred n i nety-seven


committee wh ich wa to work on memorial gift and Harland R. Ratcliffe, '23, School and Colleg·e editor of the Bo ton E vening Transcript, was made chairman of the Public ity Comm ittee. Vice-chai rmen representing various intere t of the college wer8 appointed as follow : For the faculty, Dr. Ju lian D . Taylor of Waterville, Maine, the 85-year-o1d profe sor of Latin who had j ust been de ignated a "the grand old man of Maine ; " for the alumni, Charle F. T. Seavern of H a rtford, Conn . ; for the alumnae, Flor­ ence E . Dunn, Waten ille ; for the Baptists who founded Colby, Dr. F. W. Padelford, New York, ecretary Board of Ed ucation , Northern Baptist Convention ; for the mi d-we i, H en ry H. H i lton, Chicago, of Ginn & Com­ pany ; national vice-chairman, George Otis Smith, chairman of the Federal Power Commi ion, Wa hington, D . C. ; for educational inter·es,ts, Dr. R. J. Condon , Friend hip, Maine, former pre ident of the Univer ity of Cincinn­ ati, and one time pre ident £ the Nati onal Educati.onal A s·oc i ation . I nvitation were ent out to a large n umber of alumni and friends of th e college, including ed ucational leader , eminent citiz·ens and other i nflu­ ential person , to become members of the honorary and general committee. During the ummer the e comm ittee were built up until they c ontained the n ames of nearly 250 persons who were eager to assi t the proj ect. On this list were residents of 18 state . Something over half were Colby men and women. The names of 14 present or past college presidents indicated the interest which t he educational world felt towards the undertaking. The first meeting was held on August 1 4th at the Waterville Country Club. More than a hundred pernon were p r·e sent, having c ome from all parts of Maine and other tates. It was an inspiring occasion. After the l unch eon, Mr. Wyman introduced the vice-chairmen who were present. P resident H arold S. Boardman of the University .of Maine then expfained t he recent educational survey of the state which had emphatically recom­ mended the removal of Colby College to a new and adequate site. P resi dent Johnson then presented the proj ecl with some detai l and in­ troduced three men who hav·e heavy responsibilities i n the u ndertaking : A. C. Marts of Marts & Lundy ; J. Frederick Larson, architect ; W. G. Luce, vice-president of Hegeman-Harris, Inc., builders. Each of these spoke briefly and enthusiastically about his share in the work. The affai r was brought to a climax by an add ress by Dr. Randall J. Condon, '86, who dwelt n pon the magnificent contri1butions that Colby has made to .the nation, state and church. The company then adj ourned to Mayflower H ill, where the d evelopment plans were explained by the architect. T he success of this meeting was an encouragement to all c oncerned. O n e hundred n i n ety-eight


IV While t h e program f o r raising the necessary money wa1s going for­ ward, p rogress was being made on the actual bui1lding plans. At the June m eeting, the trustees had approved t he general f.ewtures of the campus l ay­ out as submHited by Mr. L a rson, and had defin itely engaged hris organiz­ ation to draw up the complete plans for the whole development. The choice of the b u ilding firm was n ext i n order and on August 1 2th, it was announced tha1t H egeman-Harris, I n c . , of N ew Y ork and B oston, had been selected for this S3,000,000 j ob . The contracit with the trustees c ov­ ered only the p relimi nary engineeriing work and c ost of estimat ing, but there was every reason to believe that this firm would u ltimately rec·eive the commission to build the n ew campus. The company has a n rutionail repu­ tation and 1its empl oyment lends add.ed prestige to the Colby p roject. The company b ui lt the entire H arvard Business School campus and h as erec.ted buildin gs at Yale, Columbia, Vanderbilrt, D artmouth, and other educational i n stitutions. I t has j ust been awa rded contracts for the A merican E m­ b assy in P aris, and ithe approach to the Tomb of the Unknow n Soldier at Arlington . N o n e o f these p roj ects offer more i nteres1ting opportunities than the Colby j ob , according .to Mr. Luoe, who has spent m uc h time i n W aterville this summer and was quoted in the p ress as stating : "'Dhe proposal to bui.ld a whole new campus for old Colby Colliege is a unique un dertaking. N o thing like it has ever been attempted hefore, to my knowledge. There will be great satisfaction i n b uilding a model New E ngland college on the slopes of M ayflower H ilt " The plan relating to the housing of the students in the men's d ivision could n ot b e settled u ntil some decision was reached regarding the q uestion of fraternity houses. Accordingly, President J·ohn son i nvited two alumni m embers from each of the Col by chapters to a c·onf erence on September 18. Although this conference had n o official authority of any kind, there was n o doubt but whatever agreement they could come to would h ave great weight with the trustees �n making the i r fi nal deci·si1on . The conferenc.e agreed at the outset that Ooltb y College should m ake m the ost of this opportunity to develop its f raternity life along lines which would p reserve all the advantages of this social system and m inimize the drawbacks which are found i n some c olleges. F.ar �nstance , competition in luxurious fratern ity h ouses is observed to h ave had a bad effect i n some institutions. It would be better to ke-ep the physical equ ipment of each c hapter on about the same scale, so that rivalry would be •based o n the One h U' ndred ninety- '11 ine


worth of the member , in tead of on the pretentiousne s of the house. Furthermore the hou e hould be an integral part of the campus, so that there can grow up no feeling of eparation between fraternity and coilege l ife. The aim hould be to help the fraternities to fo ter, not hinder, the academic accompli hments of i t� member . A for Colby's own particular problem, it wa brought out that when the oollege opens on ,the new site, there mu t be accommodati ons for prac­ tically all the tu dent in one way or another. H owever, only one or two of the eight fraternitie can expect to be in a po ition to build their own hou es. Thu the college dormitorie would have to be planned to hold all the re t of the men students ; but as the fraternitie did build their houses in future years, the college would be left with empty dormitories on its hand . On the other hand, if the college built quanter for all the chapters at the out et, the c o t would not b e ub tantially greater than to c onstruct the extra dorm itory pace which would otherwi e be needed. Moreover, it would start all the fraternities on an equal basis. On the basis of thi.:. iine of rea oning the conference went on record a favoring a plan whereby the college would finance and build the fraternity houses, and lease them to the chapter . The next topic rel ated to the dining arrangemenu for the students. Should there be a college common for all, or should each house include dining fac ilitie for its member ? Critici m was expre sed of the com­ mon idea and in tance cited to how its failure in c ertain colleges. Ther� was also a feeling that the advantages of "family life" within a fraternity could best be con ervect by the group eating all meal together. O n the other hand, there were others who felt that this c laiming tendency was to be discouraged rather than fostered, particularly i n a mall college. Also, full kitchen and dining equipment in each hon e, together with quarters for the c hef and help, would add thousand of dollars to the cost of the eight houses. The conference waJS finally able to agree on a plan, however. There hould be a c ollege c ommons i n the Men 's Union which would oonsi·st of a dining hall with tables and service, a lower-p riced cafeteria, and several private dining rooms i n which the fraternities could dine by themselves at regular intervals, if they so wished. The fraternity houses would contain kitch eneitte equipment sufficient for h ome-cooked breakfasts and "feeds." The architect was present at the meeting and was frequently ques­ tioned i n regard to v:arious matters. He explained to the group the l i ne of though t which h ad guided him i n working out the features of this section of the campus. H is scheme placed ithe men's residential section i n one corner of the college campus, thus being secluded, yet i n contact with the Two h u ndred


Library and c l assrooms and in close proximity to the playing fields and .ithletic plant. M osit ·Of the fraternity houses would be ion either side of a green whi ch composes the ·seoondary axis of the campus and would run from the end of ,t he L i b rary to t he Men's Union. The position of the Union is i n itself a subtle meth od of fostering the demooratic traditions of Colby. This should be the actual social center and would c ontain the dining facil­ ities for .all of the men students. Thios layout would m ake the fr.eshmen and non-frait ernity men pass through the fratern ity campus on their way to every meal, while the fraternity members would c onstantly b e passing by the other houses. The effect of this daily traffic w1ould be t o offset any ten­ dency for each group to l i v·e ernt irely within its own shel l . T h e fraternity houses, as tentatively planned by M r . Larson, would form an i ntegral part of the a rch itectural scheme of the campus. The problem was to have individual houses which would not a p pear dwarfed by the other larger college b uildings, and which would have harmony with­ out monotony. The style was det ermined by the Colonial treatment of the rest of the college. The c ost was set at $50,000 for each house. By ar­ ranging them in groups of three, connected by colonades, the architect h oped to get away from the "row of boxes" effect, bringing them together in spi rit, as well as esthetic value. A t a l ater d ate, a meeting of fraiternity d elegates was held at which i t was decided to allow the c hapters to choose their house lots i n the order of their estab lishment at Colby . D ur i ng th2 fall and early winter, this was carried o ut so that each fratern ity knew exactly where its house would one d ay stand. E ach chapter, too, was asked to appoint a comm ittee of alumni and undergraduates to work with the architect in drawing u p the plans of its house. ALthough i n size and architectural style, the house s would all be about the same, each c hapter was free to work out its own i nterior ar­ rangements. D uring the fall, too, the fi rst ground was b roken on the new campus. I t happened this way. Waterville, rlike e very c,ither c ity, had a serious un­ employment problem on its hands. While, of course, i t was impossible for the c ollege to comm·e nce any of its new b uildings, i t would m aterially assist the community if some work could be done on the grounds which would pro­ vide employment. The city officials stated that they would start work on the c i rcular road i n front of the campus if the c ollege w1ould expend a n equivalent s u m of money. P resident J ohnson was rather in a quandary ; he wanted to c ooperate w ith the c ity on this basis, but the college had n o f u n d s w h i c h c ould b e devoted to t h i s p u rpose. J ust then, $ 1 5,000 dr.opped out of the blue. The donor was anonymous, b ut the check was transmitted by the secretary of the class of 1880. The Two h undred one


tory of thi check i a follow D uring the ummer, the class of 1 880 held a ummer reunion at a resort on the Maine coa t and the conversation na­ turally tu rned to the new campus plan . The members figur·ed out that the 4,000 or so living alumni and alum nae could rai e the neces ary S3,000, 000 among them elve if each were to contribute the sum of �750. There­ upon, one of the men pre ent offered to make a contribution of this size for each of the original twenty member of 1 880, amounting to $ 1 5,000. It wa a generous and noble example of Colby loyalty. With thi money, it � a determined to clear off the campus and con­ struct some of the road . The campu ite wa urveyed and the location of building and roads staked out. Hegeman-Harris, the building firm, sent up one of i ts engineers from Bo ton to u pervise the j ob. Work started on October 5th and continu·ed until the m iddle of D ecember, which was pos ible 1only because of the unu ual mildne of the weather and the ab­ sence of heavy snow. Altogether, the j ob provided 3,386 full days of em­ ployment for Waterville men. The crew varied in n umbers, but during the peak of the work in November, as many as 80 men were being employed at the ame time. About three-quarter of a mile of new roadway was built. Most of thi s w a s ion the h orse hoe-shaped drive which i s t o encircle t h e principal build­ ings. The road swinging off from this, running i n front of the O pen A i r Theater and j oi ning t h e Second Rangeway, w a a l s o completed a n d makes a beautiful drive, lined w ith clump of evergreens. A t one point it was necessary to fill to a depth of 12 feet with boulders from the fields and stone walls in the neighborhood. A gap was left in this road where it would cross and block off the county road which i s in constant use. B esides ·r oad construction, the campus was cleared of fences, bushes and wia rthless orchards, thus making it more accessible and permitting the visitor to wander over the site and visualize the future development. Two large areas of field were plowed in p reparation for tree n urseries. Some old barns were taken down, care being taken to pr·eserve the ancient hand­ hewn timber which can be used i n making beamed ceilings and other items of interior decoration in certain rooms of the n ew college. A t the same time, the City of Waterville began work on the road which will form the approach to the campus. N early three-quarters of a m ile was made ready for surfacing, although it cannot be completed until the Maine Central Railroad constructs an underpass were this rr0ad crosses the tracts of the Oakland branch. The c i ty also laid some of the water mains which will u ltimately supply the new campus. No one who viewed all of this active preparation for the college which as yet e xists only i n the dream stage, could fail to admire the courageous T w o h u ndred two


confidence of those who were determined to m ake this dream come true. O n e was reminded again and again of P0resident Johnson's statement : " This is a venture of faith ! " v

"When will be the fi rst b i g gift come to the col lege ?" and "Who will head the l i st of givers ?" were q uestion� being asked by Colby's friends a.s the campaign began to get underway in the autu m n . These were answered to the surprise and delight of e verybody o n the n i ght of October 30th , under c irc umstances which made the occasion one of the h i gh spots i n the h istory of Colby College. This date, coming on the eve of the football game with the Unive rsity of Maine, had been sel·ected as the annual Col1by N i ght. H owever, unlike all p ast Colby N i ghts, arrangements were made to m ake this a n ation-wide affair, with groups of alumni m eetin g simultaneously i n n ine cities from Maine to California. F urthermore, the parent c elebration i n Waterville was to be b roadcast from the B ang.or radio station. It was probable that o ver fifteen h u ndred Colby alumni were either present at one of the me·et­ i n gs or listening in. N ot since the famous Centennial C·e lebration i n 1 920, therefore, had so many Colby men and women been together-together in thought and spirit, though m iles apart in actuality. M ost of the details of that Colby N ight celebration do n ot concern this n arrative. Suffice it to say that there were witty and inspiring speeches, rousing band music and enthusiastic singing of Col1by S·ongs i n the old gym ­ n a s i u m . O v e r i n the A l umnae B uilding, s o m e 300 women students and al­ u m n ae were being e ntertained with a one-act play and dramatic readings by a skilled al um nae. A t exactly 9 : 18, P resideIJt J oh nson was introduced as the final speaker. T:he gathering seemed to become alert and expectant. In the Alumnae Buildi n g, the program halted while a radio brought to the women the voice of the president, a voice which was actually a few hundred yards away, but was coming to them by way of B angor. A l l over the state, interested l isten­ ers tuned their dials a little more precisely and hunched closer to the loud s peaker. President Johnson began to talk, vigorously, grippingly : thrilling occasion . . . Colby people everywhere . . . telegrams . . . M inneapolis . . . P h i ladelphi a . . . Los A ngeles . . . Chicago . . . B oston . . . Provi­ dence . . . Nlew York . . . u nited by common loyalty . . . glorious past . . . vision of the future Colby . . . public i nterest . . . progress being made . . . visit Mayflower H il l . . . and now a n announcement to make a gift from one whose i nterest i n Colby is not new, one whose life has T w o h u ndred three


been devoted to this college, one who now wishes to devote a large part of his fortune to this col lege, our own beloved Profes or Taylor has given me a pledge of a q uarter of a million dollars . . . Then bedlam broke loo e. Never before wa the roof of the old gym­ nasium in such imm inent danger of leaving its moorings. With hands clapping, feet tamping and voice yelling, everyone of the 800 men put his j oyful emotion into the production of noise. After the frenzied storm had continued a few minute , Neil Leonard '21, the chairman of the meeting, asked for quiet and sugge ted that the company expre s its deep apprecia­ tion for this significant gift by j oining in "Alma Mater. " The band opened the tune. Reverently and thankfully, the beautiful strains were sung to a close. Thus ended one of the historic episodes in the life of Colby College. Professor Taylor's great gift was the opening gun of the campaign, but as events worked out, it was to be some time before the next large gift was received. As the fall became winter it became apparent that the pre­ dicted upturn in business conditions would not take place. O n the con­ trary. the situation became worse than ever, with the stock market reach­ ing new low marks and unemployment touching new heights. The com­ mittees in c harge of the campaign, therefore, were in an embarassing situ­ ation. Instead of trying to get people to give, they found that they m ust be careful not to let people make their gifts to the proj ect at this time. The reason was that, no matter how i nterested a person might be in the undertaking, or how much he felt like giving, his pledge at the present time would be certain to be much less than it would be a year or two hence, when the value of securities was several times greater and there was a feeling of optimism in the air. Moreover, it was obvious that the cam­ paign budget, which had been planned on a three year basis, must be spread over an extra year or two. Hence, the trustees determined to mark time on the proj ect and postpone all promotional work until the times were ripe to push ahead aggressively. ·Those who are i n a position to know about philanthropic financing feel that the return of prosperity will witness such a n epidemic of drives and campaigns as the country has not experienced since the Liberty Loan days. It is encouraging, therefore, to real ize that when that time comes, with all these months of organization and preparation behind us, our pro­ gram will be about three steps in front of the others. Therefore, this Chapter in the history of "A New Campus for Old Colby" must c lose with m uch the same uncertainty as the 1 9 3 1 chapter. The end of our goal is still over the horizon, but we know that it is there and that we are moving towards it. -Joseph Co b urn S m ith, '24 . Two hu ndred four
