CLASS DAY COMMITTEE.



Cowles of Rye— Who ? Cowles ! From where? — Rye! The Lone
Stars had many imitators, short lived and sad, not deserving
the prominence of mention, though as a matter of policy, we note,
the Rheumatic Choir, the Bering Straits and the University
Quartette.

But this was not the only trip that a Yale organization indulged
in. The Dramatic Association enlarged their rather recently
acquired field of activity, and went way up to Waterbury and as
far south as Bridgeport and Washington, Pinny Riggs, as presi-
dent, led them, in company with Pack Franchot, who was the

mercenary manager. The Troupe got snow bound, but Pascal said
he didn't give a damn if they didn't have any show in Washing-
ton. Besides, the snowdrift story was a good ad., and how could
he be expected to pull 'em out, when he had to sit up all night
writing all his friends from the White House. Dave Ely, Phil
Roberts, Harry Warren, Harold Obernauer, John Metcalf and
Dave Chantler managed to pull through the trip. Louis Dreyfus
also played — the violin.




SENIOR PROMEXADE COMMITTEE.



During the winter we "made good friends and studied some."
a- the song singeth. That immortal band of brothers, the
Whiffenpoofs, kept Mory's financially above water with the
lie]]) ur spring term was perhaps the happiest and the saddest of
all. For not until then did it dawn on us with any realizing sense
that our days at Yale were numbered.

Athletically we started with a most unfortunate accident to
Steve Philbin, captain of the baseball team. It was not only
unfortunate for the College that he should be disabled for the
entire season, but for the man himself, who has given so much of
himself to Yale, and for Yale that he could not have as a climax to
his years of service, this captaincy of the baseball team. Dummy
Fogan followed him as captain, with Fred Murphy and Ted Coy
helping on the F niversity and Tap Gregory on the second nine.
Ford Johnson managed the cubs, and Earl Williams, alias Harry
Holt, scored. Ken Fenton coached the Freshman team.

In crew Ruthven Wodell made a name as captain, with such
men back of him as Brainard, Ben Wallis, "Gus" Rogers and
Bill Flint. As for the new George Adee boathouse. begun this

in the fall made it necessary for Dick Hawes, the human nail file,
to take the youngsters in hand.

Frank Nelson led the track team, with Milt Griggs as manager.
Those whom he managed for our class were : Al Haskell, Carroll
Cooney, Lyn King, Percy Goebel, Max KirjassofF and Spike
Seymour.

Savin Rock opened as usual, as I Jill Duncan, our president of
Dwight Hall, predicted it would. Elt Hoyt kept the University
Club going, and we cannot resist saying, in better shape than it
has ever been run before. In scholarship, Bob Taft, known to his
intimates and the New York Sun as the Crown Prince, presided
at the Phi Beta Kappa meeting, at least he would have if they had
met, for he was president.

Soccer was given a decided boost by Bill Holbrook, Pot
Goddard, Frank Jennings, Ed Ingraham, Jack Ewen and Hilly
Benner. On the gun team Morgie Hebard and Don Dickey occa-
sionally took a shot, while in wrestling Percy Goebel, Rog Hayes
and Jack Sweeney took a fall out of their opponents. Frank
Lewis and Tom Means turned a frequent giant swing on the gym.
team with much eclat and a few clothes.

I have also been asked to mention the Yale Corinthian Yacht
Club "open all night." The commodore was one George Rich-
ardson, also coach of the Freshman football team and a member
of the Coop.

The unfortunate events of our year and those that affected our
personal feelings deepest were the absence in the fall term of
Elton Hoyt, and in part of the winter and spring of George
Harrison, Dud Armstrong, Don Dickey, and Flenry Baars.

And now the year is done. To some it has been a glorious one,
to others it has been shadowed by hardships and discouragements.
To all it has been one primarily of friendship. As these years
fade into memories, let us forget the differences and disappoint-
ments. May our inspirations for work and service in the world
be the sweeter things of our life together ! Let us go out to larger
deeds with those words which our mother Yale is whispering to
each man of us, "those things which ye have both learned, and
received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace
shall be with you."

Merrell Clement.
