A new rush of enthusiasm, a fresh supply of vigor and a large amount of unawakened energy entered Y o r k C o l lege in the fall of 1914 with the Freshman class. These fifteen new members attracted the attention of the S o p h o m o r e s and Juniors and even of the Seniors and faculty. T h e y entered at once into their full share of college activity and responsibility. Of this group six members have g o n e through the whole course together: Hazel B o w e r s , Alt a Funkhouser, P e r c y Burke, Glen Bland, Nina Belle Caldwell and Clara King. During the S o p h o m o r e year s o m e members were lost and six new members : V e l m a Stuckey, Opal Harritt. Louise A n k e n y , M. Estelle Hughes, Charles C o x ( N i d d y ) and Lester Kettering came to join the ranks. This year was passed in the usual manner, the S o p h o m o r e s settling d o w n to sober college work except for the occurrance of a few events such as the "great class secret." L e n o r e Milligan, Pauline Bradwell, B y r o n T a t l o w and James Ballensky entered at the beginning of the Junior year. This illustrious class could not fail to gain distinction, in some way, which they did by issuing the first College Annual, the Marathon. T h e portion of the campus k n o w n as Marathon Park was also taken under their care at this time. T h e Senior year opened with fine hopes. All members returning except Niddy C o x w h o expected s o o n to respond to Uncle Sam's call. Hazel R o g e r s was gladly received and w e l c o m e d as a new member of the class. P e r c y Burke, Lester Kettering and Byron T a t i o w enlisted and Glen Bland t o o k charge of the Y. M. C. A. at Columbus in preparation f o r army Y. M. C. A. work. All are upholding the high standard of service f o r the class. Thus another class will go forth f r o m the halls of Y o r k College, refined by its culture, influenced by its Christian Faculty, guided forth in love f o r humanity, ready to enter service in the larg er circle of the world.

JUNIOR CLASS T w o years a g o there came to Y o r k College a class the like of which the world has never seen. T h e maidens beautiful, brilliant, charming, and the youths handsome, p o l ished, and manly, s o o n proved to the other classes that the class of 1919 was not to be looked at sneeringly nor passed by slightly. During that first year of class existence though they were reserved and s h y — F r e s h m e n always are—their extraordinary talent and wonderful ability along all lines of college activity s o o n attracted the attention of the p o w e r s that be. Bespectacled p r o f e s s o r s would wisely nod their heads as if to say, " W i s t y e ! See the leaders of the c o m i n g generation," and gaze lovingly at. the seekers after k n o w l e d g e o c c u p y i n g the south side of the chapel. September, 1916, found them gracing the S o p h o m o r e chapel section, the maidens still more beautiful, the youths more polished, and with a stronger spirit of courage, daring, and loyalty which c o m e s with experience. P r o u d l y and defiantly on the first of N o v e m b e r the large scarlet and cream banner waved over the heads of the powerless Freshmen and heroically the class of 1919 protected it in the enemies rush to destroy it. T h e experiences of those t w o years as lower classmen have developed sane, liberal minded Juniors, w h o m even the Seniors are forced to a c k n o w l e d g e as a shrewd, keen, lively class that does things. As a school is advertised by its notable alumni so is our class made prominent by its illustrious members. We are proud that other people have recognized our ability by c h o o s i n g Juniors to be the leaders in school activities. We claim a m o n g our number the president of Y. W. C. A., the football captain, editor of the Sandburr, three m e m b e r s of the debating teams, the representative at the State Oratorical contest and the president of the Zetaletheans. No one, of course, can c o n c e i v e of the brilliant future of each individual in the class. H o w ever, this much is certain, the class of 1919 will always s^and out as a class that made old Y o r k College famous. Here's to the Juniors! Of their fame and renown, F.very Senior k n o w s well the s t o r y ! All hail to the Juniors! Class brave and strong, In w h o s e h o n o r and daring we glory.

_ M o d e s t y is an admirable attribute—when used in the right place. But, in writing the history of the class of '20, truthfulness must be the keynote in order to do justice to such a splendid aggregation. T h e whole truth and nothing but the truth is our platform. President M c L a u g h l i n is noted for his ability to get what he g o e s after. W e l l , he went after the '16 Y o r k High S c h o o l class, and, together with the cream of the rest of Nebraska, they f o r m e d the largest class in the history of the college. N o t only are they the largest class in the school, but they are also the best. Prof. Davis says so, and we'll back him up any day. F o r the benefit of those w h o s e m e m o r y of last years' Y. C. events are rather hazy, it might be well to enumerate just a few stunts which were pulled off by our class We contributed six letter men to the football squad, t w o of them receiving all-state honors. We contributed three letter men to the basketball squad. We decisively defeated the combined college and academv at baseball by a score of eleven to two. N o t to be outdone by the athletic faction of the class, the intellectual members more than upheld their share of the class obligations in the fields of debating, expression and literaries. T h e fall of 1917 came. Of course the faculty eagerly scanned the S o p h o m o r e section, and those looks of relief seemed to imply, "A f e w gone, but it's the same old bunch." W h i c h simply meant that Y o r k College was g o ing to climb a f e w more rings in the ladder of progress. Again has our class been the mainstay of our school. In all our activities, we have maintained and even surpassed the high standard we established last year. Although we lost many of our best class-mates our progress has been made possible by our concentrated "vim, v i g o r and vitality" which we have manifested so often, f o r instance, in chapel. We give much credit to P r o f . Davis, our sponsor, but we also take considerable credit f o r selecting him in the first place. Our w i s d o m in c h o o s i n g him as our s p o n sor was soon evidenced by our first class party. Each ciuarterlv outing made this further apparent, and when the class c o m e s together again, next fall, without Question he will be the " G u y " w h o m we will select as official leader. W e l l , just watch us go.

The Seniors, although greatly in need of a leader, have kept up much of their work individually and are looking forward to the year to come.

A supply desk and c u p b o a r d contain all necessary articles such as salt, flour, sugar, spices, also larger utensils. T h e l a b o r a t o r y is made d o u b l y attractive when the girls, clad in s n o w white aprons, assemble to prepare o n e of their s a v o r y dishes. T h e present p r o b l e m s relating to the c o n s e r v a t i o n of f o o d s , f o o d substitutes and e c o n o m y in all lines of w o r k have been dealt with v e r y efficiently.

T h e regular course of study includes m a n y phases ot w o r k such as c o m p o s i t i o n of f o o d s t u f f s , m e a s u r e m e n t o! f o o d s , h o w to c h o o s e the family dietary and the c o s t and c o o k e r y of different types of f o o d s .

T h e Y o u n g W o m a n s ' Christian A s s o c i a t i o n i n o n e o t its m e e t i n g s at the b e g i n n i n g of the year d e c i d e d to u n d e r take the o r g a n i z a t i o n of classes in the three branches ot R e d C r o s s study. A f t e r planning and advertising f o r a short time a class of fifteen were enrolled in the " H o m e D i e t e t i c s " w o r k with Edith C o n e as instructor. It was a v e r y enthusiastic g r o u p of girls a l w a y s on hand at the hour a p p o i n t e d and willing to discuss f r e e l y the s u b j e c t * outlined. At the c l o s e of the discussion of the fifteen chapters an examination sent out by the main o f f i c e was given and the girls w e r e then given a certificate entitling t h e m to go out and o r g a n i z e other classes and instruct in practical dietetics f o r the h o m e . At the c l o s e of the Dietetics class the " F i r s t A i d " class w a s o r g a n i z e d under the leadership of the various P h y s i c ians of the city, and did s o m e helpful and interesting w o r k . T h i s class is rather important in this time, especially since our nurses and physicians are leaving in such large n u m b e r s and it is i m p o r t a n t that we k n o w h o w to apply " f i r s t aid" treatment and can relieve s u f f e r i n g until f u r t h er treatment can be given. T h e third branch of the w o r k is the " H o m e N u r s i n g S e r v i c e , " and if the girls of the s c h o o l could o n l y realize what a great benefit it w o u l d be to them, the class c o u l d not a c c o m m o d a t e them. T h e r e is such a demand f o r nurses aids and f o r practical nurses that the d e m a n d c a n n o t be supplied, and by having had this c o u r s e with the first aid w o r k a part of a year in training will be granted We really c a n n o t at the present time tell the exact value of these c o u r s e s to the girls or to the c o m m u n i t i e s f r o m w h i c h the girls c o m e , but we do k n o w that the w o r k has been t h o r o u g h and that those m e m b e r s of the various classes have gained b r o a d e r ideas of the things t h e y can do if they need be done.

Long, long ago in ancient Greece, feasts were held every four years in commemoration 01 their great national achievements. Olympics played a very important part in these celebrations and especially one form, the Marathon race, was intensely Interesting. The contestant must begin early by exposing himself' to hardships and must begin at a slow pace gradually working himself up to the attainment of great speed and endurance. The winner of these races was crowned with a wreath . of laurels as a token of the honor he had gained. Our Marathon is similar to> the Greek Marathon in that we have met many difficulties, but through perseverance and real work we have overcome them, and we believe that our efforts will be crowned not with a material crown, which will fade away., but with the feeling that we have done our best. W e , the members oi the Junior class have collected the golden leaves of college life, and have bound them together with bonds of devotion tor our Aim a .Mater. We have endeavored to present a true picture of college life, as well as an accurate record of the important events of the past year, and although the 191S Marathon is only the second lap of the race, it will remain as a lasting memorial to the class of 1919.

College have the

good of the student body at heart and are always wideawake to any suggestions for the betterment of conditions among the students. The outcome of some of these altruistic feelings is the Handbook which is published annually by the Christian Association and put on sale at the beginning of the school year. This little book contains some very valuable information which can not be gleaned from any text book and it is therefore an indispensable asset. The new students will not be able to go through the first semester successfully unless they buy a Handbook, study it and govern themselves accordingly. Ask the upper classmen. They know.

This has been the most active year in debat'ng which York College has experienced since 1912. T w o debates were scheduled with Hastings College, two with Grand Island College and a possible one with Kearney State Normal. Thè student interest shown has been greater than that of last year and the persons who won places on the teams give evidence of excellent debating ability. Three of the debaters for this year, Miss Snider, Miss Cave and Mr. Fletcher, were members of last years teams. This is the first year of Intercollegiate debating for the othe: three who are Miss Myers, Mr. Mulvaney and Mr. Sweet. The fact that none of the members of the team this year are in the graduating class will make possible still greater debating strength for next year. Oratory in York College needs more attention from the student body. This year only one person prepared an oration. Winning orators can only be secured by an active local association back of them and a good local contest to draw out the best student ability. The greatest need in this field of forensics is an earlier start. Oratorical propaganda should be begun in October instead of January. York College has been a strong rival at the state contest in years gone by. Those traditions need to be upheld with greater strength now. The war has drawn off a number of men whose interest and ability in this field was strong. Is it not now a point of honor for the students remaining to actively enlist in their places?

The Athletic Board is a very august body composed of both students and faculty members, which transacts the business pertaining to the warfare and welfare of our athletes. In order to win a " Y " a man has to meet the approval of the powers that be because the aforesaid Athletic Board is made up of very conscientious personages. The President of this board is a very capable and efficient one and being intensely interested in Athletics she is able to see things from the athlete's point of view; and not being- a participator she has the opportunity of judging from the sidelines. The two faculty members serve as a sort of balancing force and are lavish with advice. Students from different classes belong to this organization making is all in all a very democratic group as anyone would naturally expect to find in a democratic school like York College.

Y o r k College fully expected to add another championship to her list, but failing to repeat her grand 1916 record must bend all her energies and efforts to the 1918 championship. Football appeared rather doubtful at first because there were only a few of the old men back to carry the white and blue standard " O v e r the Top," the other, men had responded to the call of a bigger game. Entering the conference campaign with the expressed purpose <?f putting out one of the finest teams in the history of the conference, with a squad of green material was indeed an undertaking worthy only of the man who tackled the job, Mr. E. Frank. The 1917 season opened with the decided victory over the Central City Quakers. The Quakers were rumored to be strong contenders for the championship and they were real contenders. Central City if they had not dropped out of the ring would have put out the strongest aggregation that ever donned football togs for the Quakers. The Hawks came out of the contest with a good margin while their goal line was never threatened. Tn the second game the Hawks were not able to keep the pace of a non-crossed goal-line. Grand Island pushed the pig skin over the line for one count but that did not spell defeat; it was only an incentive to arouse all the fight and resistence in the White and Blue. The defeat of Grand Island strengthened our hope of a championship team. The third contest of the season resulted in a victory over Peru Although Peru had lost all her games up to this time she was not lacking the punch and fight which characterizes the grid-iron sport. After scoring a decisive victory over the Peruvians we faced Cotner the only team who had not lost a conference game, excepting the Hawks. The championship game will long be remembered both by the team and those who went on the special train to help the team win another pennant. It proved to be the hardest grid-iron contest of the season. The Bulldogs were game to the last whistle. Cotner won by count but not by a display of superior football. After the championship game there was nothing else for us to do but to humble our last year's foe, Wesleyan. We like to play Wesleyan because they are clean hard flayers and because of their high class football. We like best of all to beat them. From the start it was evident that the Hawks could soar far above the Coyotes. It was not one sided but fast and decisive. The class of football displayed by our team in the Cotner and Wesleyan games won for us two positions on the all conference eleven. We could not take the first place so what could we do but take the next best place, second. The Thanksgiving game to the disappointment of local football enthusiasts was played on a foreign field, but we let the Sunflowers know that football was not foreign to rs. This game shows that Kansas and Nebraska intercollegiate football is on a par. St. Marys was second in Kansas and York second in Nebraska; St. Mary's triumohed by a 7â&#x20AC;&#x201D;0 score. Here's to the 1918 and succeed' ing championships for York College:

The Basket Ball season this year came to an early close due to the lack of inter-collegiate games. The schedule was small and necessarily so, due to war conditions and financial reasons. Faculty opinion and school conditions were against having a basket ball season. A collegiate basket ball team was considered by the majority of students who gave the matter but slight thought, an impossibility this year. A few enthusiastic students however, would not let the subject drop but kept it hot until finally faculty consent was given and a way was seen clear for organizing a team to represent old Y. C. this year among the other colleges of the state. Captain Samuelson was chosen to lead the basket-ball warriors and regular practice was instituted each evening of the school week. Mr. W e r t z was secured to coach basket ball and his services were very valuable to the team during their short but snappy season. Participation in the York City Tournament preceded a defeat of the Columbus Y. M. goal- shooters on the home floor by our lads. The intercollegiate games were necessarily few in number and as stated before, existing conditions necessitated an early close of the season. It is needless to go into the merits of the respective players. York College athletes are known as fighters to the end and these were no exception to the rule. Suffice it to say that in these precarious war times it is indeed essential to keep college athletics from dying, and old York College should feel proud this year that she has been represented in a strong manner by both a football and a basketball team. York College has not lost its old time pep but is still on the map in athletic circles.

The girls gymnasium class has been progressing very nicely with Mts. Bell as instructor. The class is a large one and Mrs. Bell shows her ability in keeping the girls interested and enthusiastic about the work. Indian clubs, dumb bells, wands and rulers are the implements of warfare used to bring into play the muscles which remain quiet all day. But these cannot be the means of exercising all muscles; so there are numerous exercises through which these students of physical culture must pass, thus acquiring the desired exercise and at the same time, grace and ease of movement. Marching, also, constitutes a part of the program of each class hour. Here the girls learn to march single file, in twos, four abreast or eight abreast as the case may be. But whether it be marching, jumping or swinging Indian clubs, gymnasium helps make American girlhood strong and healthy. The girls feel this as is shown by their enthusiasm and loyalty.

To him who in the love of pleasure holds Communion with her pleasant pastimes, she speaks in accents promising; tor his class-room hours She has a dream of last night, and the girl, And the beauty of the moonlight, and she glides into his study hours with a tread Of happy memories, that steals his good intentions, ere he is aware. When thoughts Of the final exams come like a blight To spoil his dreaming, and sad misgivings Of the grade lie will get, the office, and home. The sad disappointment and his empty head, Make him to shudder and grow sick at heart,— Go forth into the moonlight and list To cupid's pleading, while from all around— Might, and the moonlight, and soft Spring air— Comes a still voice—Vet a few days, and thee The all but heartless profs shall see no more In college halls; no more in cozy nooks Where thou were want to linger, and to dream, No more to go to picture shows, for thy joy fs past. Father that sent thee here shall" call Thee home again to be of use to him once more, And, lost each dream of fame, giving up Thine old ambition, thou shalt go To mix again with common folks, To he sweetheart to the old time Sue And to join the old gang, which thou were wont To shun and turn away from. But not to thine eternal resting place Shall thou retire alone, nor couldst thou wish For better company. Thou shalt lie down With dignified Seniors of knowledge—with Sophs. The boastful of the school—the wise, the dumb— Juniors, and the class of the greener age A 1 ! as in one mighty sepulchre. So live that when thy summons comes to join The unavoidable caravan which moves To that most dreaded tveek. when each shall take His exams, in the unconfiding classrooms, Thou go not to thy studying at night D'gging till daylight, hut cheered and comforted Bv the ever heloful bluff, approach thy flunks T ike one who fills the oockets of his coat With ponies, and lies down to p'ensant dreams.

Between six o'clock and my bed time, When the night is beginning to lower, Comes a pause in the day's mad rushing Which is known as my study hour. I hear in the chamber above me The stomping of someone's feet, The sound of a door that is opened And voices carefree and sweet. From my own room I hear below me, Ascending the broad " C o n " stair, Grave Irish, and laughing Duke Reynolds, And Mary with dark brown hair. A whisper, and then a giggle, And T know they're up to some trick, They are plotting and planning together, They want to do something quick. A sudden rush from the stairway, A sudden raid through the hall! To one door found well guarded, They could not enter at all! They climb to peep through the transom, Stretching up from' the back of a chair; But this they didn't succeed in, They didn't get anywhere. They almost strangled from pepper They tried to blow under the door, 'Till they thought of the fire extinguisher To force through the hole of the door! Do you think, all of you plotters, As you stand out there in the hall, That those two heads put together Are not a match for you all! Do you have them fast in the fortress? Or have you let them depart, And let them jump from the window? Such, you know, is a lover's art! They will laugh at you now forever, Yes, forever and a day, Till the " C o n " walls shall crumble to ruin And moulder in dust away!

PROVERBS A check from home is a joy for a week. If you would have a drawing done well, don't do it yourself. Study when you please. Where there's a Jane there's a Bill, (bill!) Cramming is hardest just before exams. Too many profs spoil our fun. Have a date for everything and every date kept straight. A history note book is a dread forever. Peek twice before you copy. Somebodyelse's notes are better than none. The profs of a college plot together. AH the bluffs are not in the hills. Every college has its nuts. A latin ponv is better than silver or gold. A note up your sleeve is a help indeed. Students want but pleasure while in college, but want that pleasure long. If you can't write, don't scribble. Of two assignments choose the shortest. Better a poor attempt than no bluff at all. He that's born to flunk need not study. Don't try to explain what you don't understand. Blame not thyself. Any excuse will serve when one is late to class. What shall it profit a man if he gain a good grade and lo^e-out on some fun? Some are born studious, some achieve studiousness, others have studies thrust upon them. To make a long tale short, use an axe. Dogs of war have tails of woe. No student can ever lose what he has not learned. Great profs from little "book-worms" grow. The stairs of old Y. C. lead but to the class rooms. Little Freshies have green souls. Whatsoever a bachelor seweth, that shall he also rip.

This manner of entrance is very desirable, not only because it will attract the attention of everyone in the room, but it will also give you a grand entree.


After having slammed the door sufficiently, walk' to a convenient seat, assuming all the while a bored expression of disinterest.


If there is but one seat unoccupied, and several persons to be seated, rush madly for it, and loudly assert your right to it. If you happen to knock anybody down in the hurry, tramp on him, he should not be in the way.


If the temperature of the room is uncomfortable secure a chair, and draw it up to the radiator. No matter if you do block the aisle: it was only put there for your special benefit anyway, tf the room is too warm to suit yon, fling the window clear up. no matter if other folks aÂťe cold: they should have worn wool so.-ks and fur overcoats.


Strike up a conversation with anybody in the class, the farther away the better. If the instructor or any student has the effrontery to remonstrate, freeze him with an icy stare. You have paid your tuition and are entitled to some privileges besides being flunked.


After you are tired of annoying those about you who have been trying to get something out of the lecture, dig around your pockets and find something to make a noise. .V bald head or a fair maiden intent on tier notes will either one make a fine target for paperwads. You might even find some paper that you could tear up and scatter on the floor, as a carpet tor your feet.


It is well to remember that nothing is so appreciated aw art. so if you have any ability along that line there is no better time and place to exercise it than during the class hour, with a dull knife upon the back of the seat in front of you. Furniture is cheap nowadays and manufacturers have such little sense of decoration, anyway.


When class is over make a grand rush for the door, be the first one out and be sure you start some excitement in the hall.

In a parlor there were three: A maid, a parlor lamp and he, Two were company, without a doubt, And so the parlor lamp went out. Oh, a trouble's a ton or a trouble's an ounce, Or a trouble is what you make it. But it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts, But only how did you take it.

Suddenly from the deep recesses of study, the mind is recalled by a cry "away with thy books! Haste to the laundry room window and watch Aurora in all her splendor illuminate the black dome of night. Across the midnight sky, two flaming bands of yellow and orange light up the earth beneath. A meteor, for one second, shines in all its glory and then delves off into infinite space. Far to the north, a streak of light as from one gigantic search light is turned perpendicularly toward the. heavens above. Another, for an instance, appears in the south. W h a t can be the source of this miraculous display? N o w the flaming bands of color are melting into the intense darkness, excepting in one portion of the sky where it seems to collect in greater brilliancy than ever. Suddenly, across the lighted space come moving numerous, dark, mysterious objects. " T h e Germans, The Germans are coming."—the wild startled cry rings through the hall. Hurriedly, coats, caps and kimonas are grabbed by the inmates of the Dorm and a wild scramble is made for the door—If a bomb is dropped on Hulitt conservatory, much safer will it be outside! Are they making straight for this institution? Swiftly, swiftly comes the large black zeppelin in the lead. Next to it the great air birds seem to lie making straight toward their object of vengeance. With terrified hearts, the observers watch the approaching doom. How did the Germans get passed Washington D. C. ? W h y are thev going to harm the innocent inmates of Hulitt Con.? Will their friends miss them when they find they have been killed by a German bomb? Will the Germans destroy all the buildings, or only the Dormitory? These are some of the thoughts that flashed through the minds of the observers. Should they run"^ Where should they go?—Onward, still onward come the dark objects until they seemed to he right over the water tower. But wait! W h a t a queer shape that Zeppelin is now taking! In a second, as it were, it seems to break into fifty pieces. The airships, too, ti'ke on a peculiar form. Suddenly, while all eyes are rivited o't the changing spectacle, a peal nf laughter breaks from one of the fair damsels— '"Tis only clouds," she calmly said. "I think we're fools—let's go to bed."

The Shorthand Department is the goal to which the average Commercial student looks forward. It is no wonder they do for, after acquiring a certain degree of efficiency in this department, they will have practically ended their Business College career. About seventy-five students have enrolled in this department since the first of September, a fair numoer, considering so many answering the call of their country, who would otherwise have been in school. The work of this Department consists of Shorthand, Typewriting, Spelling, Penmanship, and Office Training to the advanced students. The Gregg System of Shorthand is taught by Mr. Townsend, who shows his skill and patience with beginners, and also with some of the others who persist in not doing things as they ought. The L. C. Smith, the Underwood, and the Remington Typewriters are used. Several of the students have won the 40-word Test Certificate. Office Training is being followed with much interest, with Mr. Townsend as pilot. Some of the. features taken up are: Office Routine, Banking, Filing, Office Appliances, Shipping, Department and Business Ethics, Telegrams and Cablegrams. Mr. Townsend also has the Penmanship class and there shows his ability as a Penmanship Instructor. Miss Francis has the spelling class which is one of the important, it not the most important of all studies, as a good stenographer M U S T know how to spell.
