CLASS POEM June is here with all its beauties, With its sunshine and good cheer. We, the Class of Nineteen Sixteen Have a t last come to the year, When we must turn life's great corner And view far across the,land, Just what Nature puts before us Thru the work of God's great hand. But let's turn our faces backward O'er the path that we have trod, And the friends which we have gathered Since we first met on this sod, O'er the many happy memories, Which have linked us side by side, Under that great floating banner T h a t we bore with such great pride. In the autumn came the loud laugh From the outdoor basket ball, Then again the game of tennis With its score and with its call. And a t hockey as a t soccer We have each played as we learned, And the numerals and the letters We have proudly worn, we earned.

$& i $2F$Just

Let us each take a firm stand As we gather on life's hill, For the working of our own minds Has some mission to fulfill. Come now, comrades, let us go forth And view far across the land what Nature puts before us Thru the work of God's great hand.


CLASS HISTORY The Class of 1916! Not one present but knows and looks with admiration upon our valiant number; we who are bound together by the trials and hardships, as well as the fun and frolic, of our years together in C. C. I. Since, as I have said, everyone knows all about us, you may ask, why write a class history a t all? Why keep a diary or a junk book! In the years to come we, the Class of 1916, will look back upon our deeds of valor, as chronicled in The Hack, and take a keener pleasure in remembering our good times since they are enrolled in the annals of history. I will spare you the task of listening to the tale of a "bunch of merry, rollicking children who made the halls ring with their gay chatter.'' I can assure you that we were much too frightened for that. We reverenced the Seniors, and a few unlucky ones went so far as to contract that direful disease known as "crush." We were made to feel that we were in truth-green as grass. We learned many a hard lesson in our freshman year, yet we parted in June feeling that we had made a good beginning for our four years' course. Many strange faces greeted us upon our arrival a t C. C. I. in our sophomore year. We welcomed all newcomers cordially, and before long we were again united as a class and ready to make the upper classmen take notice of us. In fact, we felt ourselves to be quite all that was necessary in the way of excellent .students. We strengthened our convictions by putting our hair up and lengthening our skirts. I can assure you i t made us feel a dozen years older and more important. I will not vouch for our looks. Let us hope a t least that they have improved with time. We entered vigorously into athletics and distinguished ourselves in scholastic ability as well. We introduced the habit of using the moon for practical purposes by giving the Seniors a marshmallow toast down by the lake. The one element lacking was "man," but even that important factor for happiness must be dispensed with a t times. A goodly number of our old girls returned with us in our junior yeak( and we were happy to welcome more to help swell the ranks and make our class one to be proud of. The Class of 1916 takes due praise unto itself for reviving the almost forgotten Junior Prom in the for111 of the Junior week-end.


This way of entertaining the Seniors proved a great success, onc reason for which was, perhaps, the addition of the much sought-after masculine gender. We must say that the latter did add much enjoyment to the occasion. I t was with genuine regret that we gave the Seniors our farewell serenade, and we parted in June with bright hopes for the last lap of our journey-our senior year. We started our year on Senior Hall with renewed vigor after our long vacation, ready to attack all the difficulties of our home stretch. We chose as our president one Tiny in name and form, but assuredly not in ability. With Miss Breckenridge as our advisor, what more could a class want? In the fall we entertained the school with a mock wedding. I think we ourselves had more fun in planning and practicing for it than did any of our guests. Inspired by the success of our play wedding, one of our number became possessed with the idea of trying a wedding in real life. Her experiment afforded much excitement to Senior Hall. In the springtime came more good times. Our tea for the Faculty proved a great success. Also Miss Breckenridge and Miss Austin's tea for us holds a never-to-be-forgotten place in our memories. And we must not forget the Junior week-end. I t was a joy to all concerned (which did not include the Sophs and Freshmen) and we heartily appreciate their efforts to entertain us as royally as they did. Now that i t is time for us to say good-bye, we realize how closely the ties of friendship have drawn us together. Memories of our years here in C. C. I., of our Senior Hall, our teachers, and our friends will be with us always and we part with a feeling of deep regret, yet with bright hopes for the days to come.

CLASS PROPHECY A few years after I graduated from C. C. I., I decided to t r y for a position on the staff of one of the large newspapers, so I went t o New York little dreaming wkat good fortune was in store for me. As I was passing through the waiting room in the Grand Central Station, someone tapped me on the arm saying, "Young lady, are you a stranger in the city?" I turned and imagine my astonishment when I recognized Bee Holm wearing a Travelers' Aid badge. W e talked for a few minutes and then, realizing t h a t i t was past noon, I suggested t h a t we have lunch together for I was anxious t o hear some C. C. I . news. I had been in the West ever since I graduated and had not heard from many of the girls for a long time. When we were finally seated in the dining-room of the Hotel McAlpin, Bee began: "This certainly is strange, you are the fourth C. C. I. girl I have met in the station in the last two days. On Tuesday, I saw Tiny Carlson and her husband. They were on their way back to their farm which I hear is the largest and most beautiful in the state. With them was Gladys Hallock who was enjoying a hardearned vacation from an Orphans' Home where she is the matron. " That same afternoon I met K a y Howell. She is very popular in the social circles of Newark and New York. I hear t h a t she is engaged t o one of the richest young fellows in Newark, although she did not tell me so. "Yesterday I saw Ruth Tuthill for a second. She is teaching in a n Italian kindergarten in the Bowery. She said she had just come from a wonderful concert given by Lib Smith and E m m a Sheaffer in Carnegie Hall." " What about your former room-mate?" "Mill Hoover? Well, you know her work as editor of the 'Hack' was so successful t h a t she attended a school of journalism and is now editor of the Century magazine." "Oh!" I cried, "isn't t h a t great! Perhaps she will give me a l e t t a of introduction to some influential newspaper man." "Are you looking for a position of t h a t sort? Then I advise you t o go to her office this very afternoon, for she told me the other d a y t h a t one of the associate editors had resigned and somebody else on the staff had died."


After lunch I left Bee and started for the office of the editor of the Century. As I was walking up Fifth Avenue a large suffrage parade swung into view. I t was headed by two of the most ardent suffrage workers in the city, Josephine Hummer and Marian Mead. As I neared my destination, I noticed a placard in front of a finelooking moving picture theatre, advertising a wonderful new film play with Dorothy Cook as leAding lady. I could scarcely believe my eyes, but there was her picture and she did not look so very different from the "Cookie" of C. C. I. days. I had now arrived a t the office and after a short delay was ushered into the presence of the editor who sat before a desk piled high with papers. She looked up as I entered and I saw that she was the same business-like "Mill" of "Hack" days even to the spectacles with the tortoise shell rims: ' After talking business for a time, our conversation drifted to 'Oir school days and classmates. Mill said she had in her magazine one t ' of Helen Spofford's advertisements. She had bought out S n s m : ' Cocroft's business and was becoming famous thru her recent discwary , of how to reduce one's weight from two to forty-two pounds. Laura Spencer had married an artist and they were hoping to make their home in Paris as soon as the war ended. 4 Speaking of the war reminded her of Hilda Lehnert who, she said, had gone to Poland to do relief work and had become engaged to a dashing young Belgian officer. . Marguerite Page and Mildred Perinchief had opened a fashionable dressmaking establishment and were fast making their fortunes. Eleanor Chism was doing most successful work a t Y. W. C. A. headquarters. Marjorie Butt and Adaline Cougle had both been content to settle down to married life, Marjorie having married a Princeton man and "Couge" one from Lafayette. Mandy Northrop was doing social settlement work and Ellen Green had a thriving manicuring and shampooing establishment. T h a t ;evening, when I went to my room a t the hotel, I found a letter forwarded to me from home. I t was from Bee Palmer who was teaching zesthetic dancing in the Gilbert School in Boston. She spoke of having heard from both Betty Brown and Charlotte Bickerton. Betty had graduated from Bryn Mawr with high honors and


was now head of a large school for deaf and dumb children. Charlotte had taught Latin for a year after she left college but had become tired of it and had obtained a licence as pilot of an airship and was taking passengers daily between New York and Chicago. Dot Hutchison was another of our number who had preferred the joys of married life to single blessedness. She and her husband had several large greenhouses and made a speeialty of raising roses. The letter dropped from my hands-and as I sat looking out a t the lights of the city I began to think over my expe~iencesof the day. One by one the friends we had spoken of came into my mind and it was then that I realized that I had heard of the doings and whereabouts of every member of the dear old Class of 1916. '

CLASS SONG Tune: A Little Bit of Heaven I.

Do you know the class of one and six and where it got its fame? We've learned much Math and History since to these halls we came. We've learned to cook and t a t and ,sew and still our grades are best, We have lead the honor roll this year ahead of all the rest.

Ref rain: Sure, the social functions of the year which passed from day to day Not only helped us frolic, but have kept us Seniors gay. Our special seats in Chapel, and in diningroom as well, Have made us feel our duty and pay heed to ev'ry bell. We must say farewell t o Senior Hall-with its memories so dear, I t s Sunday morning breakfasts, and its feeds a t midnight drear. Now, the year book we have finished in which many had a share; So we leave these walls forever and go forth without a care. 2.

We do know we're not athletic, but we've put up a stiff fightWe have marched and danced and shouted for our colors red and white. So on the day of leaving we will keep one view in mind, Our loyalty to C. C. I., and the friends we leave behind.

MOCK WEDDING BY T H E SENIORS W E D D I N G CEREMONY The marriage ceremony of Goldy Ish Kabibble and Ikey Ikestein was one of the most stunning affairs of the season. The bride was attired in white cheesecloth and carried a bouquet of corn stalks and a lily. Her veil was the fashionable window curtain lace, so much in vogue in Paris this season. The bridesmaids were gowned in striking costumes of red and purple calico. The gowns for the whole wedding party were designed by Madame de M u t t of Wayback Hollow. The party made its entrance solemnly accompanied by the wails of the bride's family and the incantations of the Rabbi. After reaching the platform, the bride and groom marched around the Rabbi seven times to the music of Solomon Levi. This was done as a promise that they would live with each other a t least seven weeks before suing for divorce. The ceremony proper was accomplished with few drawbacks, the pranks of the younger members of the company making the affair most entertaining. Ikey's father created a slight disturbance by insisting that Goldy did not have a large enough dowry; however, he was soon quieted. The wine and ring ceremony was used. The groom created a sensation by forgetting where he had put the golden circlet. After much searching, he finally found i t in his shoe, having put it there so that he would.surely not lose it. The dance on the platform after the two had been made one was most effective, each man striving to kiss the bride, as well as to secure a dance with her. T o conclude the ceremony, two of Goldy's younger sisters sang an edifying ditty to the tune of Solomon Levi. This was followed by a large reception in the recreation hall. Caterers from New York City furnished delightful refreshments, the most enjoyable of which were, perhaps, the onion sandwiches. Mr. and Mrs. Kabibble received many handsome and useful gifts. NIr. &abibblels wedding gift to his wife was a diamond bar pin. The "Newlyweds" expect to be gone about three weeks on their wedding tour to, Onion Centre. Upon their return they will be " at home" t o all friends a t 149 Baxter Street.

T O T H E SENIORS Senior, rest! Thy classes o'er, Sleep thy sleep without cessation Dream of classroom nevermore, Morning walk, or recitation. In that peaceful Senior Hall Some Junior in thy bed is sleeping. No more the bell on thy ear shall fall, T o no more feeds shalt thou be creeping. Senior, rest! Thy strife is o'er, Sleep the sleep that knows no breaking, Dream of classrooms nevermore, Days of danger, nights of waking.

TRAINING TABLE Oh! Lord, be merciful And keep us all alive, There's seven a t the tableAnd grub for only five!

SEMPER IDEM

I had a little pony, His name was Cicero. I lent him to a friend of mine T o pass a test or so. She rode him to the limit, And was really doing well, When the teacher got my precious horse -And gave that pupil-Zero!

A SENIOR'S COURSE She had basket-ball and soccer Hack board, Y. W. C. A. "Soc," downtown and movies, Her Anniversary Play. Then she had Senior meetings And lots and lots of Gym, And-yes, oh, yes, another thingHer studying thrown in!

P a t had just given "Nain" as the name of a certain city in reply to a question. ;iTeacher (seeing Nat dreaming) : "Miss Parker, what is the name of the city just mentioned?" Nat: "Name?" Teacher: "Very good."


Becky, who was on duty, marched down the halI, murder in her eye. "What's the matter, Becky?" someone asked. "Bird's flew the coop again!" Alice Shaw (in the tea room): "My cocoa is cold." Marion Banker: "Then put on your hat." Our cheese, dreams and beans most finished me, But I soon ceased to fret, For the Doctor was called and he said I couldn't di-gest yet. Kay Howell in History of Painting: "Watteau was the one chiefly responsible for the croquets in French art." Freshman a t First Meal (inspecting engraving on silverware): "Who is this C. C. I., anyway? President of Centenary Collegiate Institute?" Downtown one day, someone grabbed Nat Crosby's pocketbook. Nat, knowing that Doc's picture was within, shrieked wildly, "Oh, oh! give me back my precious Jules!" Senior (departing) :. "Miss -, I am truly indebted to you for all I have learned in my four years here!" Miss -: "Dont' mention it, dear, it's a mere trifle."

I N PARLOR TALK " It is not good taste to use perfumed stationery." Voice from the Audience: "No, but it's good smell."


A TALE OF THE WITCHING HOUR A dark and silent corridor stretched its dreary length along the unused portion of the large building. Time had been when the sound of merry voices and girlish laughter had echoed thru its dim recesses. Now the only sound which disturbed its quiet was the scampering of many mice, who roamed about without fear of detection. One day two youthful damsels, inspired with the spirit of adventure, set out on an expedition of discovery. Finding a long-unused staircase, they quietly and stealthily made their way into the unknown region. Much to their surprise, they found no bars or bolts to hinder their progress. Delighted, they stole silently along, eagerly peering into the vacant rooms, only to find everything enveloped in dust. Hastily they retreated as they had come.

Once again the old staircase creaked and groaned, but this time from the footsteps of many excited maidens, each one burdened with a queer-looking bundle, from which appetizing odors oozed with tantalizing proximity. Stealthily they wended their way upward until they had all assembled in one of the dark and dusty chambers. T h e wind howled about the corners dismally, sounding as if the witches had all come forth to work their evil charms. No light illu- . ,, mined the scene of busy activity. Sounds of smothered laughter -echoed thru the crowded room. Time after time dark shadows in the . -. corners of the room brought forth startled exclamations. I ._, Soon might be heard the sound of a voice in subdued tones, say: ing-, "Pass me a pickle," or, "It's time for the ice-cream!" For what - .. - .d" unknown reason these unusual words! Who can tell? - , -:.I . Ever and anon a strange silence would fall on those assembled, as if a magic charm were cast over them, and, afar off, could be heard the . ., 71 heavy tread of the sentinel, as he made his rounds. - 8

Then, in sepulchral tones, were told strange tales of land and s e a ~ men f in white and of girls all alone in the house. Tales of imagination fit to equal even the marvelous adventures of the Arabian Nights. Had one listened, one might have heard a faint whisper, "Oh, please hold my hand."

. . . . . . . As quietly as they had come, so the maidens left. All was silence.

Once again the dark and dreary corridor stretches its weary length along the unused portion of the large building. Once again no sound is heard save the busy scampering of well-fed mice. Has the old hall pleasant memories? Who knows!

GREAT DISCOVERIES IN SCIENCE The famous chemist, Dr. Burgess, while performing one of her numerous experiments, luckily chanced upon a new method for removing curl from hair. While manipulating the alcohol burner with a pair of tweezers, a flame shot forward enveloping her head, leaving her hair straight and short. I t is hoped that this new scientific law will also make short and straight hair long and curly.

A TALE There was once in the state of Jersey a School, to which Maidens came that they might .be educated. And Maidens only, for no Youths were allowed within the sacred Precincts, except for formal calls with Chaperons. But there was one Maiden a t this School who did not love her Feminine Companions. She wished only to be with a Youth, and she wrote to him late and early, receiving also many love missives from him. This Youth likewise loved the Maiden, and came to see her as often as he had enough Gasoline. The other Maidens, being jealous, said to her, "Why do you not wear the sparkling Solitaire on your finger? Whereupon the Maiden blushed and ran away. Now it happened that the President of the School gave all the Maidens a holiday, when they could go home and receive the gifts which Santa Claus had left for them. When the day for returning arrived and the Maidens came back, one of the Number was missing. Then they whispered among themselves, and wondered where she might be. And her bosom Companion, the one with whom she roomed and slept, was most doleful, saying, "Why does my room-mate not return to protect me from the awful Mice." When, after three days, the missing Maiden had not returned, there was great Consternation. Finally the Hackettstown Clarion announced in flaming headlines the marriage of the Maiden and the Youth. Peg calls those peculiar boat-shaped white shoes that so frequently kdorn her pedal extremities 'Hackettstown Delights."

Martin rushed frantically down Third Hall the other day yelling: "Purd ! Purd ! Come quick! There's mice under your beds!" "What's the matter, you look sick?" "Insomnia. Woke up three times in Church this morning." "Bee Hawley, how chapped your lips are!" Bee-"Yes, just can't keep the chaps away!" Joe Rodenbough was late to the Presbyterian Church one Sunday and rushed in to find her seat occupied by a good-looking young gentleman. Turning agitatedly to the usher she said: "S-s-s-s-sew me to another Sh-sheet!" Anna Roberts-"Do you buy trots in the office?" A certain young lady, whose name it is considered best not to mention, upon arriving a t C. C. I., was taken to Church-for the first time, we grieve to state, in some years. The first thing her roving eye lit upon was the pipe organ. "Gee!" she ejaculated, "What a radiator!" Selleck (proudly)-"My man belongs to a fraternity up a t Cornell!" Steady-"What fraternity?" Selleck (still more proudly)-"The Hunting Club!" Little dinners a t the American House are so fatiguing that it has been found necessary to recuperate a t home for a week after each!

PAGE FROM A PRELIMINARY'S DIARY

Do you see this girl? She is a Senior. You will wash her hair. You will tickle her arm. You will make her bed. You will read her Snappy Stories. You will shut her window and turn on her radiator a t 4 A. M. You will wash last Sunday morning breakfast's cocoa cups for her. You will worship her from afar off. But if you open your mouth in herl'presence, she will make you feel like an Arctic explorer in a linen suit ! ! ! She is a Senior !


AN EVENING IN T H E TRENCHES I t was a cool, starry night in (Germany). In the trenches could be heard the (Rum)bling of many cannon from across the (Mead). (charley), a new recruit, was sitting before the camp-fire toasting his (Boots). On his knee was a letter from (Holm) written in a bold (Spencer)ian hand. As he turned the (Page) (A line) caught his eye which set him dreaming. He seemed to see the little (Brown) cottage on the (Green) banks of the old (Mill) stream. All was happiness(Bees) were humming among the flowers which (Dot)ted the meadows where (Cattell) grazed peacefully. He was home again-his (Tiny) (Brownie)-like sister (Emma) welcomed him with (Glad) cries, (Butt) the sight of his sweetheart (Mandy) caused him to push her (Jo)kingly away. Charley woke from his reverie (Coug)hing, having been roused by (Chism), the cook, and once again he heard the (Howel1)ing of the cannon. Forty minutes were spent by the Physiology class in hearing about the solar plexus. "Rum," proudly announced Helen spoffo;d, when class was over, "we learned all about soul 'perplexities'!" Bea Hawley, consuming chicken one Sunday noon, discovered a small pebble in her portion. "Huh!" she exclaimed. "Guess this chicken must have been a Plymouth Rock." Some member of the Meclizval History class was requested t o describe some of Henry IV's difficulties after he died.


HINTS TO FUTURE OCCUPANTS OF SENIOR HALL First-Lay in a good supply of mouse-traps-as anyone will tell you there is one o'f the peculiar beasts on the hall, which is supposed to be of monstrous size. There is a very liberal prize offered for its capture-so beat us'out at it and capture him. Also-Bring many blankets as Senior Hall is known to be a t least fifty degrees nearer the North Pole than South Dorm. Again-Never make any disturbance on Sunday afternoon when people are trying to sleep. And-You better bring an extra case to put in the clubroom to hold the many trophies attained by the honorable Junior Class. Moreover-Be provided with an extra large supply of literature, for, forget not, Seniors are given the privilege of having lights on ten minutes longer. Then-Beware-there is one carpet sweeper which is always known to be the abiding place of a mouse, and woe t o the Senior who attempts to clean her room with said sweeper. Absolutely-Bring some ear muffs to muffle the sweet and melodious(?) strains which issue forth from the numerous practice rooms from early morn t o dewy eve. Remember-Third Hall, North Dorm, is not to be used. There should be/ no further directions necessary.
