XXV, No. 2 ITHACA, N.<br><br> Y., October 5, 1922 PRICE 12 CENTS R EGISTRATION figures show a total, taken at noon on September " 23, of 4,080 students, 266 more than at the corresponding date last year. Of this number, 1,328 are new students, as compared with 1,337 last year. This does not, however, represent the final total.<br><br> It is reasonably to be expected that about five hundred names will be added to this list. THE SAGE CHAPEL Preacher for Septem- ber 24 was the Rev. Dr.<br><br> Murray Bartlett, president of Hobart College. On October 1 the preacher was the Rev. Dr.<br><br> R. Bruce Taylor, principal of Queen's University, Kingston, Canada. Next Sunday the Rev.<br><br> Dr. Willard Learoyd Sperry, Congrega- tionalist, dean of the Andover Theological School in Harvard, will preach. THE FENCING TEAM resumed activities for the coming year with a meeting held in Barnes Hall under the presidency of Cap- tain Arthur T.<br><br> Hunter '23, of St. Louis. Shingles were given to the members of last year's team, and registrations made for practice, which began October 2 under the direction of Captain Hunter.<br><br> MORE POLO PONIES have been sent here for the use of the Artillery Unit, and are being trained by members of the Unit un- der the direction of Major Thomas J. J. Christian.<br><br> FRESHMAN FOOTBALL REGISTRATION shows a total of nearly one hundred names, which number Coach Paul W. Eckley '17 finds full of promise for a successful season. Practice started on September 25, on the northeast corner of Lower Alumni Field.<br><br> It is possible that flood lights such as are now in use on Schoellkopf Field, will be installed for the benefit of the freshmen later on, when early darkness cuts their practice short. TRYOUTS for the University Orchestra and the Glee Club show the usual wealth of material for these organizations. The requirements of neither organization have as yet been fully met, and second calls have been issued especially for tenors and for 'cellists.<br><br> THE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT of "Dixie" has been presented to Cornell by its com- poser, the late Daniel D. Emmett. It is now in the North Carolina Hall of History as a loan until 1923.<br><br> THE FRESHMAN ADVISORY COMMITTEE held its first organized meeting in Barnes Hall on October 3 under the chairmanship of George L. Lee '23, of Newark, N. J.<br><br> The committee, a large one, is composed of worthy upperclassmen, to each of whom is assigned a certain number of freshmen whom they will help in every possible way. THE COURSE in hotel management given this year for the first time by the College of Agriculture in cooperation with the American Hotel Association, has attracted an enrollment of twenty students. H.<br><br> B. Meek, a graduate of Boston University, has been named director of the new course, with the official title of Assistant Professor of Institutional Management in the School of Home Economics. SORORITY RUSHING started on Septem- ber 27, following rules adopted by the Pan- Hellenic Association last spring.<br><br> Formal rushing will last two and one-half weeks, divided into three periods, the first of which includes eight informal entertain- ments, the second four, and the last two. No bids will be sent out before October 14' and pledging is to be between five and six of the afternoon of that day. THE SOCCER SEASON opens hopefully with five full teams practicing daily on Lower Alumni Field, and the Intercollege League formed earlier than usual.<br><br> Two new soccer fields have been laid out on Up- per Alumni Field to be used primarily for games in the Interfraternity League now in the process of formation. Coach Bawlf has a nucleus of but two regulars from last year's varsity team. JOBS FOR STUDENTS working their way through the University are fewer this year than heretofore.<br><br> More than three hun- dred applicants for such work have been disappointed in spite of the best efforts of the Employment Bureau to find employ- ment for them. THE DEBATING CLUB sent Murray F. Johnson '23, of Woodside, New York, as its delegate to the conference of the Inter- collegiate Debating League, held in Spring- field, Massachusetts, on September 30.<br><br> The purpose of the conference was to organize a debating league that shall in- clude twelve of the principal colleges of the East. CREW REGISTRATION to date has fallen below the marks set by this date in any of the three preceding years. Only two hun- dred eighty-four oarsmen are registered.<br><br> CORNELL is still the leading educational institution in Ithaca, but the Ithaca Con- servatory of Music is growing rapidly and two new schools have been recently estab- lished. Last year the Ithaca School of Physical Education was started under Dr. Albert Sharpe and this year the Empire State School of Printing under the dean- ship of Ross W.<br><br> Kellogg '12, is in full swing. It is reported that a notable theo- logical seminary may soon change its quarters to the city on Cayuga Lake. TRACK REGISTRATION having passed the three hundred mark, Schoellkopf Field in the afternoon presents the aspects of an Olympic meet.<br><br> Saturday's trials in cross country drew fields aggregating 80 men, and brought out some hopeful material for the varsity team. In the track trials, two exceptionally good marks for this time of year were made by freshmen: 5 feet 6 inches in the high jump and 11 feet in the pole vault. SOUTH AVENUE, between Central and Stewart Avenues, has been graded and re- surfaced.<br><br> It is now more like a street than a gorge. THE INDEPENDENTS have held a meeting for the organization of their forces and have pointed out that "all men who are neither attached to, nor affiliated with, a Cornell organization in the Interfraternity meetings, is a member." Room 2 in the tower of Barnes Hall is the organization's office and a booklet telling of the Independ- ent Association, its purposes and program, has been prepared. THE ITHACA CONSERVATORY of Music announces an artists' anniversary concert series, to include a song recital by Herbert Witherspoon on October 6; a recital by .<br><br> Paderewski on November 13; a song re- cital by Florence Hinkle; and a violin recital by an artist who will be announced later. There will also be a lyceum course of entertainments which will include Ed- ward Amherst Ott, the lecturer; Edith Wynne Matthison; Charles Rann Ken- nedy; John B. Ratto, character artist; and Alton Packard, cartoonist.<br><br> PHI KAPPA PHI has elected the following officers for the year: president, Professor Arthur W. Browne, Ph.D. '03; vice-presi- dent, Professor Abram T.<br><br> Kerr '95; secre- tary, Dr. Jacob R. Collins '21; treasurer, Dr.<br><br> Georgia L. White '96; executive com- mittee, with the above officers, Professors Karl M. Wiegand '94, Roswell C.<br><br> Gibbs '06, and Clarence E. Townsend '07. THE CROSS COUNTRY TEAM has accept- ed an invitation to compete at Syracuse on November 4, in the annual intercollegiate meet scheduled in that city on the occasion of the Syracuse-McGill football game.<br><br> Colgate, Columbia, and the Carnegie In- stitute have also accepted invitations to compete. THE CORNELL stock-judging team achieved distinction at the Eastern States Exposition at Springfield, Mass. Harvey A.<br><br> Weaver y 2^ from Findley Lake, was high man with Lowry T. Mea, Jr., '23, of Brooklyn, a close second in general judg- ing of all types of cattle, sheep and swine. 2 2 CORNELL ALUMNI NEWS Convention Committees Mix Business With Pleasure Announce Speakers for Pittsburgh Conclave Next Week and Plans for Two-Day Reunion 4Old-Fashioned Cornell Party Plans for the Pittsburgh Convention have rounded into shape and postal replies are being received from many well known Cornellians.<br><br> Among early replies are J. Du Pratt White '90, Neal D. Becker '05, Edwin N.<br><br> Sanderson '87, Andrew J. Whin- ery ?o, Joseph P. Harris '01, George B.<br><br> Walbridge '00, Julian A. Pollak '07, Walter P. Cooke '91, George J.<br><br> Tansey '88, E. E. Sheridan ?i, and Willard Beahan '78.<br><br> President Farrand will be there, as well as Dean Kimball and Dean Mann. Ithaca will be further represented by Berry, Sailor, Coffin, Flack, Bement and others. The local clubs are beginning to show life.<br><br> Cleveland reports that it may be de- pended upon to furnish a healthy delega- tion. Detroit, Baltimore, Buffalo, Day- ton, and Johnstown have arranged special convention boosting meetings and reports are coming that the convention is being talked of on all sides. Everything looks rosy for an old-fashioned reunion.<br><br> Pittsburgh Started Early The Pittsburgh club has had a hundred of its finest hard at work for two months. The finance committee, headed by "Brick" Metcalf, has kicked in with a fund that will knock the tar out of all deficits. At- tenders will be asked to pay a ten-dollar registration fee, for which they will receive entertainment and instruction valuable beyond monetary measure.<br><br> On Friday morning, the meeting will open with a session, promptly at 10 a. m. Thomas Fleming, Jr., '05, as.president of the Associate Alumni, will occupy the mid- dle chair and will call upon A.<br><br> Welling Wyckoff '94, chairman of the convention committee, and Karl W. Gass '12, presi- dent of the Pittsburgh association, to tell you that the town is yours. They have promised to tell it in a few well chosen words.<br><br> George Clapp, president of the University of Pittsburgh Alumni Associa- tion, and G. Cooke Kimball, former presi- dent of the Associated Harvard Clubs, have agreed to be with us and furnish help- ful suggestions as to how we, as alumni, can help the University on the Hill. At this session the national committee on the federation of Cornell clubs will pre- sent its report.<br><br> This committee has been considering the alumni service problem. The proponents of the federation plan argue that alumni usefulness can best be secured through the medium of the local club; that the individual will function through his home unit, as he does not now do through the Associate Alumni, in which .he is but one of the thirty-odd thousand units. Others point out that the Associate Alumni by-laws provide for club represen- tation, and that it is now in fact controlled by this representation, since relatively few individuals each year qualify by the pay- ment of their annual dues.<br><br> The other side argues that since the individual has not been interested in the Associate Alumni, a governing body for local clubs should not be burdened with this cumbersome organ- ization; that a closely-knit body of these clubs should be formed; that such an organization would stimulate the forma- tion of local clubs; that the country should be districted and each Cornellian should become automatically a member of some club; that this is the identical plan under which the Red Cross functions and which made possible their war campaigns; that it is the plan found to produce the best results by the Yale, Harvard, and Princeton federations. Discussions of this question are going to provide an oppor- tunity for presenting your views, and you should give the University the benefit of your experience by coming and participa- ting. Another committee will report on the mechanism of alumni Trustee balloting.<br><br> Elsewhere is this issue of the ALUMNI NEWS is given the tabulated results of the 1922 vote. A fruitful discussion of this problem is expected. At this juncture the committee has thoughtfully provided luncheon.<br><br> Reserva- tions for tables will be made by classes, but this will not prevent you from joining any other group that you find available. Have Choice of Entertainment The afternoon offers a variety of attrac- tions. You may be interested in joining up with one of the parties that is going to visit one of these plants: the Carnegie Steel Company, the Jones & Laughlin Steel Company, the Westinghouse Air- Brake, the Westinghouse Electric, the Heinz, and the Pittsburgh Provision & Packing Company.<br><br> Parties will also go to the Mellon Institute and Carnegie Tech., while a general sight-seeing tour will also be available. We expect a great many of the attenders to make use of the club guest cards. Fine golf courses and tennis courts will be open to you, and transportation provided.<br><br> The men of the clan will again gather at 7 p. m. on the good ship "Homer Smith" for a supper and smoker.<br><br> This entertain- ment promises to be the event,of the con- vention. "Cleveland Bub" North, "Ithaca Rym" Berry and "Pittsburgh John" Todd will have charge of the ship and entertain- ment. Valuable prizes as follows will be distributed: For brother coming longest distance: Neat little barbed-wire face- cloth.<br><br> For club with largest number at- tending: Handsome combination cane and umbrella stand. For youngest living graduate present: Beautiful hand-em- broidered satin neck-scarf. For oldest liv- ing graduate present: A full set of genuine velvet ear muffs.<br><br> For the brother bringing the longest whiskers: Exquisite cut-glass dresser-size cologne bottle. This affair is entitled a boat-ride-smoker and the boat-ride feature is not to be over- looked. The gang-plank will be pulled in at seven sharp; so don't be late.<br><br> The women of the convention, mean- while, will go on a theatre party. Quite a few women have written for reservations and a number of men are bringing their wives. Pittsburgh Cornell women, under Mrs.<br><br> C. A. Carpenter (Margaret Van Deu- sen '09) will be on hand to take care of the arrangements.<br><br> Faculty Speaks Saturday On Saturday morning the meeting re- convenes at 9.30 and Dean Mann will tell us of the relationship between the Univer- sity and New York State and how they are cooperating. After the business of the convention has been finished, luncheon will be provided at the Hotel Schenley. From this point we adjourn to the football game.<br><br> "Pop" Warner '94 has been turn- ing out exceptional football teams for the University of Pittsburgh, and their op- ponent on this date, West Virginia Univer- sity, promises to give them a severe test. President Farrand will be the principal speaker at the banquet that evening. Dean Kimball, president of the A.S.M.E.<br><br> and well loved by all his former students, will be on hand to give us his keen analysis of the University happenings. Special convention railroad fares will prevail. To get the benefit of the half- fare return trip, be sure to ask for a conven- tion certificate when buying your going ticket.<br><br> Present this at the registration booth as soon as you land at the hotel. A well balanced program of work and fun will fill your two-day stay. The com- mittee is most anxious to provide accom- modations for all and if you* have failed to send word of your coming, sit down now and drop a line to Rodman M.<br><br> Cornell, Standard Underground Cable Company, Pittsburgh. He will make the necessary room reservation if you will tell him the date of your arrival. Don't delay longer.<br><br> This is going to be one of the outstanding meetings in Cornell alumni history. You can't afford to miss it. MAJOR SPORTS TICKETS continue to be in less demand than in years heretofore, in spite of the special drive to promote their sale held on the day of the St.<br><br> Bonaventure football game. The total sold to date is 3,367, as against 3,648 on the correspond- ing date last year. CORNELL ALUMNI NEWS 23 FOR NEW YORK WOMEN It will be of interest to Cornell women living in New York this winter to know that on Tuesdays an athletic evening is provided by the Intercollegiate Athletic Association at the Barnard College Gym- nasium, 116th Street and Broadway.<br><br> For further information application should be made to Elsie Church Atkinson ?8 (Mrs. Kerr Atkinson), 55 Tiemann Place, New York. FORM NEW CLUB A new Cornell Club was formed on August 23 with the first meeting of the Cornell Alumni Association of Hampton Roads.<br><br> The organization was launched with a banquet at the Southland Hotel in Norfolk, Virginia, with Cornellians present from Portsmouth, Newport News, Suffolk, Hampton, and other neighboring points. Ben Paul Snyder, Sp., has been most active in the organization work and at the meeting he outlined the objects of the association. Following an address by Charles E.<br><br> Ashburner, city manager of Norfolk, officers were elected as follows: Hubert K. Peebles '16, of Newport News, president; R. Johnson Neely '01, of Ports- mouth, vice-president; William L.<br><br> Mul- roy '04, of Virginia Beach, second vice- president; Ben Paul Snyder, Sp., of Nor- folk, secretary and treasurer; Chester Ashby '01 and John Southworth '92, of Newport News, and Robert A. Mitchell '21, of Norfolk, board of trustees. The Hampton Roads association will hold monthly meetings.<br><br> BINGHAMTON FELICITATES FROSH A dozen youngsters who were to become Cornell freshmen a few days later were the guests of honor at a meeting of the Cornell Club of Binghamton, New York, at the University Club in that city on the eve- ning of September 14. The occasion was the second annual send-off given by the club to new Cornellians from Binghamton. Much sage advice and information was dispensed gratis by alumni of various ages, some of them home talent, others importa- tions from Ithaca.<br><br> Dr. Frank M. Dyer '02, president of the club, formally wel- comed the new students, urging them so to shape their courses as to get the most benefit from all of University life.<br><br> Elmer F. Kinsman '20, secretary, read a letter from President Farrand, expressing wel- come to the sub-frosh and felicitations to the old grads. Professor Charles L.<br><br> (Bull) Durham '99, and R. W. (Tubby) Sailor '07, came with the latest gossip of Tompkins County.<br><br> Be- tween them they attempted to cover the field, to give the freshmen a better under- standing of the University than is avail- able to most young Cornellians until they have been in Ithaca for a term or two. Not the least enjoyable feature of the evening was the community singing with Kinsman at the piano, together with two solos by George B. Cummings ?2, the "Alumni Song" and the "Crew Song."

Still Shaping Team The football team rolled up a big score (55-6) against St. Bonaventure in the opening game last Saturday; but in form, team play, and notably line play they were not as advanced as last year's team in the opening game, against the same opponents.<br><br> Whereas a year ago the eleven men who were to make up the varsity had been definitely selected and the team that open- ed the season also started the final game, with Pennsylvania, those who sweltered in a mid-summer sun in the stadium last Saturday discovered that it will be a week or two before a first varsity eleven is definitely chosen and team development can go forward in earnest. The varsity played about the kind of game one might expect from a group of in- dividuals who had not been working to- gether for any length of time. There was missing a concerted charging line; inter- ference for the backs first failed to develop at all, but as the game progressed one had glimpses of backfield formations and pro- tection for the runner that distinguished the offense of last year's eleven.<br><br> For the most part, however, gains were made by individuals, clever dodging, elusive run- ning by Eddie Kaw and Pfann, and later on by Donald Post, who was substituted for Kaw in the third period and gave a good account of himself. The forwards as a rule failed to get the jump; they did not charge in in time to put their opponents on the defensive, and consequently it was difficult for the backs to get off their plays. There was lacking the team work which even as early as the first game characterized last year's eleven and proved even at that time that an ag- gressive scoring machine was in the pro- cess of making.<br><br> On the other hand one got the impression, especially as substi- tutes were sent in who showed in some cases greater possibilities than their pre- decessors, that the material is at hand for another good eleven and that another ef- fective machine is on the way. Occasional loose handling of the ball proved costly. A fumble by Harte of a short punt, early in the first period, put Cornell on the defensive, well in her own territory, and subsequent loose handling of the ball by Ramsey and Kaw allowed St.<br><br> Bonaventure to make a touchdown. On three other occasions fumbles stopped promising advances. On the other hand some of the men were keen to follow the ball, Kneen, Pfann, Raymond, and Han- son in particular.<br><br> Tackling was usually effective, but a tendency to overrun the man with the ball was not uncommon, sometimes the runner was checked but not brought to earth. The ends got down fair- ly well, but they were blocked more than once. On the offense most of the gains were made as a consequence of individual effort, though here and there formations that proved so effective last season made sub- stantial progress.<br><br> A few passes were used, with excellent effect, one, Kaw to Pfann, paving the way to a touchdown, and another, Post to Pfann, resulting directly in a score. Each covered about twenty- five yards. George Pfann, the quarterback, stood out for all around offensive play, proving a hard man to stop as he darted by the tackles or occasionally went out around the ends.<br><br> His cutting in after starting out on a wide arc was conspicuously successful. Captain Kaw played for two and a half periods, showing old time form in return- ing punts and in circling the tackles or oc- casionally making a wide sweep about the ends. His punting was also satisfactory, the kicks averaging forty-five yards or thereabouts.<br><br> The most effective play seemed to be feinting a pass, followed by a run, which might go off tackle or out be- yond the ends. Ramsey showed flashes of form in sharp line plunges and defensive play, and Harte made occasional gains through the line. The latter had been playing fullback on the second team until an injury to Cassidy this week brought him up to the first team.<br><br> A broken bone in the hand will keep Cassidy out of the game for a time. Besides Pfann, who was perhaps the busiest and most useful person in the game Saturday, Hanson stood out prominently. Not only did the big left tackle play an ef- fective game in the line, but his work downfield was notable.<br><br> At the beginning of the third period Hanson kicked off, a long, high kick which Lucco caught and muffed on the ten-yard line. He had barely recovered it before Hanson bore him to earth. And when it came to mak- ing the point after touchdown, Hanson was there with a perfect score, five goals from placement out of five attempts.<br><br> Rollo, who took up this task after Hanson had retired, kicked two out of three. Rollo, by the way, showed a good deal of promise in the period or so he played. Ten days ago the team seemed to have been definitely selected.<br><br> But injuries and the failure of a few men to come up to ex- pectations have changed the situation. Of the ends who started Saturday, Kneen, Dexter, Gouinlock, Raymond, and Hen- derson, only the first named is probably sure of a place. Gouinlock and Raymond might be ranked next in order.<br><br> Hanson 24 CORNELL ALUMNI NEWS and Sundstrom, who started at tackles, are fixtures, certainly the former; Mott Smith seems to have the call at center. His passing was accurate and his defen- sive play fairly good, but he has yet to show on getting down on the kiekoff, charging, etc. The loss of Brayton at center is certainly felt; he was in many ways the big figure in last year's line.<br><br> Although Berean, a sophomore, and Smith, one of last year's substitutes, start- ed at guards, Brannon and Ebersole, of the original first team, gave a better account of themselves when they got into the game^ and Rollo and Flynn, the latter a dark horse, seemed even more effective, though when they got into action the opposition was of course weaker. All of these six men seem to be in the picture. Behind the line Pfann, Kaw, and Ram- sey are certainties; when Cassidy recovers he will supplant Harte at fullback.<br><br> He is faster and wiser in the game. Post looks good as a first substitute halfback; against less capable and experienced players than Kaw and Ramsey, Post would be a varsity selection. Wade of last season's freshman team looks like the other halfback sub- stitute.<br><br> As for the game itself, St. Bonaventure had the advantage in the first period be- cause fumbling put Cornell well back into her own territory and the line didn't give the backs a chance to get going. A fumble, as recounted before, gave the visitors their one score.<br><br> Cornell picked up in the second period, scoring two touchdowns, with Kaw and Pfann getting into action nicely. In - the third period two more touchdowns were obtained against the fast weakening Saints, and in the final quarter, with an almost new team on the field, Cornell rode over her opponents, scoring four touch- downs.

Early indications are that Colgate, Columbia, Dartmouth, and Pennsylvania will all have stronger teams this year than last. Colgate and Columbia particularly got away impressively.<br><br> Richard Harlow, for some years coach and assistant coach at Penn State is now directing Colgate football. At Columbia Frank J. O'Neill is head coach again, while John Heismann remains head coach at Pennsylvania and Jack Cannell is at the head of the Dart- mouth staff.<br><br> Columbia is reported to have plenty of experienced backfield material, and many big if inexperienced men for the line. In the next two weeks these teams should develop sufficiently to give a fairly good line on their potentialities. SPORT STUFF In that initial football game the score at the end of the first period was St.<br><br> Bonaven- ture 6, Cornell o. A little later St. Bona- venture grew weary, the Cornell eleven got together a little better and the dam broke, flooding the place with touchdowns.<br><br> Pretty close to six thousand persons at- tended the game 4more than ever before saw an opening game in Ithaca. Ten or twelve years ago that would have been about the number present at a "big" home game. The seat sale for the Colgate game to be played here on October 21 opens for mem- bers of the Athletic Association only on Monday, October 9.<br><br> The general sale opens the following day. Tickets are again $2 and are not subject to tax. Fif- teen cents should be added to remittances to cover registration and postage.<br><br> For the last three years the Colgate game has drawn about ten thousand people. The figure hasn't varied much. About that many people are expected this year.<br><br> If, however, Colgate should beat Princeton on October 14 4and our scouts tell us this is by no means impossible 4 Schoellkopf Field won't be big enough on the 21st. The experience of the St. Bonaventure game didn't help us innocent by-standers any in determining how good our team is likely to be, or who is likely to play on it.<br><br> Saturday it looked like a pretty good foot- ball squad and a pretty poor football team. R. B.<br><br> CALIFORNIA THANKS CORNELL The University of California, through its alumni secretary, R. E. Bosshard, has sent the thanks of its alumni to Cornell for the entertainment given the California track team when it stopped in Ithaca last May en route to the Intercollegiates.<br><br> Mr. Bos- shard writes as follows to Alumni Repre- sentative Foster M. Coffin '12: "Recently when we gave a luncheon in honor of the members of the track team, Coach Walter Christie recounted the pleas- ant attentions that were bestowed upon the members of the team at Cornell.<br><br> Fol- lowing his talk a motion was made and un- animously adopted that the Alumni Secre- tary extend to Cornell University the thanks of the alumni of California for the splendid reception given to the boys. "I have written a letter of similar tenor to Mr. Romeyn Berry, your graduate man- ager." NEW ENGLAND WASHED CLEAN One of the best known of the annual alumni functions is the "Wash" of the Cor- nell Club of New England, celebrated each summer with fitting pomp and cere- mony.<br><br> The reporter from Boston who sends in the following story was evidently of the opinion that the day was a success: "Readers of the ALUMNI NEWS may have experienced some difficulty lately in obtaining their usual supply of Ivory soap. The Cornell Club of New England regrets exceedingly if anyone has been unduly embarrassed or inconvenienced by this apparent shortage as it was no doubt brought about by the immense quantity of the cleansing substance consumed at their Annual Wash, Saturday, July 29. "The party started with an informal lunch at the Hotel Westminster, Boston, and from there journeyed by auto to South Natick where the doings started with a baseball game between the odd and even classes.<br><br> Converse Hill ?8 was elected, without competition, to pitch for the evens, and after a lot of persuasion W. I. Huckins ?8 consented to catch.<br><br> And they did pretty well at that. The battery for the odds consisted of Creed W. Fulton '09 and R.<br><br> L. Sittinger '15, Creed, of course, pitching and Rud acting as backstop. After seven innings of almost errorless baseball, the score then being 13 to 6 in favor of the evens, the umpire Richard O.<br><br> (Dick) Walter, '01, our "oldest living alumnus," called the game to allow time for the other events. "In the base running contest Huckins distinguished himself by covering the four bags in 17 2-5 seconds and again by de- feating all comers in the baseball target throwing, even Arthur P. (Cully) Bryant ?o and Edwin R.<br><br> Thomas '08, who tied for second place. Ted Graves ?o took the throwing contest from Creed Fulton by hurling the sphere eighty-six yards. They couldn't find it in the tall grass after that.<br><br> About this time every one remembered the real purpose of the migration to South Natick and accordingly dove or was push- ed into the Charles River to WASH up for dinner at the Old Natick Inn. "Creed Fulton presided at dinner and, CORNELL ALUMNI NEWS 25 as the program promised, awarded the winners of athletic events with neat prizes. Dr.<br><br> Howard P. Bellows '·2 and S. Wiley Wakeman '99 were the speakers of the evening.<br><br> Several others said some- thing at odd times. S. H.<br><br> (Hibby) Ayer '14 sang and played many of his inimitable songs. In fact it is doubtful if Hibby had time to eat, so loud and persistent were the calls for more. After dinner the crowd drifted to the spacious side porch of the Inn and in the dusk sang all the old-time melodies and a few new ones with a feeling and wealth of harmony seldom equaled since Zinck's and the Senate, as we like to remember them, passed out of existence.<br><br> "Fifty men were present- and every one of them voted this the best Wash staged yet, thanks to the committee headed by Oswald Rothmaler '12. And it was a good party. As The South Natick Weekly Gazette so aptly and justly expressed it, a pleasant time was had by all present." The Cornell Club of New England re- sumed activities for the fall with the first of the regular weekly lunches at the City Club on Monday, September 11.<br><br> The "Rub," the annual ceremony which fol- lows each "Wash," will be held on Satur- day, October 7. LITERARY REVIEW TO DINE AT SCARSDALE Cornell men of Westchester County, with a few others who live over the line in New York City and in Connecticut, will make a day of it at the Scarsdale Country Club on Monday, October 23. A golf tournament will be held in the afternoon, open to all comers, and in the evening President Farrand will be the guest of honor at a Cornell dinner.<br><br> Owen C. Torrey ?i , is chairman of the committee on arrangements. His address is the Marine Office of America, 53 Beaver Street, New York.<br><br> All interested Cornell men who may be missed in the circulation of advance notices should get into touch with Torrey. DETROIT OFFICERS The Cornell University Association of Michigan is holding its annual meeting on Friday, October 6, at the University Club in Detroit.

By Margaret Culkin Ban- ning.<br><br> New York. George H. Doran Com- pany.<br><br> 1922. 19.5 cm., pp. 290.<br><br> Price, $2, net. This is the third novel by Mrs. Archibald T.<br><br> Banning, Jr., which we have had the pleasure of reviewing in these columns, the others being "Half Loaves" and "This Marrying." We now have some idea of what to look for in her stories. The scene is apt to be laid in a great Western city, among people of the higher social strata, and always among people who are worth while; and the story is apt to deal intel- ligently with some one of the great prob- lems of our complex modern life, always in a manner which compels attention and which throws light on if it does not always solve the question in hand. The present story has to do with the woman's movement.<br><br> Gage Flandon, a rising young lawyer, is bitterly opposed to woman suffrage and all that goes with it for what he believes to be the cheapening of the life of women, and especially for the one woman of his life. She, however, drawn into the struggle for the recognition of women's rights through the influence of a college friend, Margaret Duffield, per- sists in her political activity, with results that threaten disaster to their happy family life. There are other "workers" for the cause 4Mrs.<br><br> Brownley, the charm- ing hostess, Mrs. Thorstad, the ambitious politician; and contrasted in a way with these is Freda Thorstad, beautiful, im- pulsive, foolish, perhaps, but always right- minded, whose love story is fresh and fine. The net result of the story, as a study in feminism, is not altogether favorable to the woman's cause.<br><br> The author seems to tell us that righteous as that cause may be in theory, the reform for which it stands can be wrought only with pain and tears. And the pathetic figure of Walter Carpenter is a type of the tragic personages whom it leaves in the wake of its onward march. One may argue, of course, that there are varying degrees of femininity, and that some women would never be content to merge their individuality into private family life even if there were no such thing as a woman's rights movement.<br><br> But it seems evident that our.author meant Mar- garet Duffield to be a type of woman who, but for the great passion she conceives for the cause of woman's advancement in general, might have become a happy wife and mother. There are undoubtedly many such, who become, in many cases secretly, martyrs to the cause. Like Mrs.<br><br> Banning's other stories, this one is well worth reading, both for its in- terest as a story and for the point of view it suggests on the great question with which its plot deals.

ITHACA, N.<br><br> Y., OCTOBER 5, 1922 HOW WE VOTE FOR TRUSTEES At the Pittsburgh Convention a com- mittee, appointed in Chicago last spring, will report on certain changes in the method of voting on Trustees. Of interest in this connection will be the figures of last year's vote as analyzed by the alumni office. Complete figures just compiled show that the candidate who ran third, and thus lost of election, polled a vote only thirty- seven ballots behind the previous high record.<br><br> In 1916 James H. Edwards '88 was elected with 4,186 votes. The totals last spring were: S.<br><br> Wiley Wakeman '99, 4580; William Metcalf, Jr. '01, 4,459; Mrs. Anna Botsford Comstock '85, 4,149.<br><br> Since the establishment two years ago of the office of Alumni Representative, ap- peals to alumni aiming at a larger vote have been steady and persistent. In 1920 the franchise was exercised by only one out of every five potential voters. In 1921 the proportion was increased to one voter out of every four.<br><br> Last spring the figures reached a mark higher than one out of every three (36.5 percent). The goal of more than half looms up as not impossible of attainment. In the last election 19,425 persons were eligible to vote by virtue of having re- ceived a Cornell degree and having a mail address of the preceding year.<br><br> The in- crease was due in part to the number of degrees granted during the twelve months, but principally to the number of "lost" graduates who were located in that period. One striking increase was in the number of women voters. In the two preceding years the men had outdistanced the women not only numerically, as would be expect- ed, but proportionately as well.<br><br> The figures in 1921 had been 26 percent for men and 18.5 percent for women; and in 1920, 21 percent for men and 17.1 percent for women. Last spring the vote of the wo- men reached 47 percent of their number, 1,303 out of a possible 2,752. The vote for men was 5,635 out of 16,673, o r 34 P er ~ cent.<br><br> Detailed analysis of the vote only strengthens the conclusions reached by those who have studied the votes of the two preceding years; that the activities of a local club or association are directly re- flected in the size of the vote in that sec- tion of the country; and that the vote is far heaviest, in proportion to their numer- ical strength, among the older classes. By geographical divisions the vote is heaviest of course in New York State. Of the 6,938 votes cast, 3,175 came from alumni resident in New York.<br><br> Next came Pennsylvania with 606, New Jersey with 380, Ohio with 307, Illinois with 291, Mas- sachusetts with 256, and California with 254- On the fairer basis of percentages, these States show a quite different rating. Mas- sachusetts cast ballots from 52 percent of her alumni; California from 49 percent; Pennsylvania from 42 percent; New Jer- sey and Ohio, 37 percent; New York, 36 percent; and Illinois, 35 percent. Among all States, Massachusetts ran third to Kansas and Oklahoma, which had 54 per- cent and 53 percent respectively.<br><br> Kansas has only 56 voters however, and Oklahoma 62. Five States cast as much as a fifty per- cent vote, Louisiana running fourth with 51.5 percent of a possible 64 votes, and Delaware fifth with 50.5 percent of 77. California, sixth among all the States, led the group west of the Rockies, with 49 percent of 517.<br><br> The number of votes from Eastern States increased greatly this year. A year ago the East was far outdistanced. Except for New Jersey, which ran fourth with 46 percent, 'the most respectable Eastern State in 1921 was Maine, whose 29 percent ranked her in nineteenth posi- tion.<br><br> This year Massachusetts ran third with 52 percent, Delaware fifth with 50.5 percent, Rhode Island seventh with 46 per- cent, Vermont ninth with 43 percent, Pennsylvania fourteenth with 42 percent, and New Hampshire sixteenth with 41 percent. Only a few States are lower than the general average of a year ago. Four States voted less than 25 percent: Georgia, 24 percent; North Dakota, 23 percent; Ne- vada, 15 percent; and Idaho, 7 percent.<br><br> Georgia in 1921 was third from lowest. Six cities cast a vote of 60 percent or better. Cambridge, Mass., totaled 72 per- cent with 24 out of 33, and State College, Pa., 62.5 percent with 15 out of 24, Pitts- burgh, Pa., Worcester, Mass., Providence, R.<br><br> L, and Glens Falls, N. Y., voted 60 percent. Pittsburgh totaled 142 out of 234, Worcester 18 out of 30, Providence and Glens Falls, 14 out of 23.<br><br> Of the classes, '84 repeated its leader- ship of last year, with 66 percent of its members voting; '74 was close behind with 65.5 percent. The classes of '72, '75, '85, '88, '82, '96, and '69 finished next in order, all with percentages of 50 percent or better. The best class this side of the "nineties" was ?o, in thirteenth position with 47 per- cent.<br><br> '21 was the best class in the "teens" or later, finishing in thirty-fifth place with 38 percent. In number of votes cast the younger classes of course score heaviest; '17 with 299. Then followed in order '16, '18, '15, '12, '14, ?1 and'21.<br><br> In fact, 45 percent of the total vote was cast by members of classes who have taken degrees since 1910. In the consideration of this vote by the classes, there is the usual puzzling question. On the one hand it might naturally be as- sumed that alumni activity would be strongest, proportionately, on the part of alumni recently graduated, with their memories of the University still vivid.<br><br> The offsetting ground for encouragement is in the evidence that as Cornell alumni grow in years, their interest in the Uni- versity increases to a corresponding de- gree. Alumni representation on the Board of Trustees comprises one-quarter of the total voting membership. The Board has forty voting members, of whom ten are elected by the alumni, two each year for terms of five years.<br><br> Of the remaining thirty members, fifteen are elected by the Board itself (three each year) and five are appointed by the Governor of New York State (one each year). The remaining ten members comprise the governor of the State and other appointments which are substantially ex-officio. In addition to the ten members elected by the alumni, the majority of the other thirty members are Cornell graduates.<br><br> The two Trustees chosen by alumni each year are elected by transmitted ballot. The franchise-may be exercised by every person holding a Cornell degree, either baccalaureate or advanced. Any person can be placed in nomination by ten Cor- nellians eligible to vote, such nominations to be sent to the Treasurer of the Univer- sity not later than April 1.<br><br> As soon as practicable after April 1, the names of nominees, with accompanying biographies and ballots, are sent by the Treasurer to every degree holder. Votes may be cast CORN ELL ALUMNI NEWS 2 7 until the Monday preceding the Com- mencement meeting of the Associate Alumni, held in Ithaca each June. As the Associate Alumni is charged with the managing of the vote, a productive dis- cussion of Trustee elections taking place at Pittsburgh should lead to an increased participation in the administration of the University, through making the Alumni Trustees representative of a wider elec- torate.<br><br> F.

Treat >88 Harry Whitney Treat, prominent capi- talist, clubman, and sportsman of Seattle, was instantly killed on July 30, when his automobile went over an embankment on the Columbia Valley road near Chilliwack, B.C. He had spent several days in British Columbia, and returning he missed a turn and got on the wrong road.<br><br> When he realized his mistake, the road had become very narrow, and the side fell away almost to a precipice. In attempting to turn the car around he went too far and the car crashed down the embankment and he was buried under it. Treat was born in Monroe, Wis., on December 13, 1865, a son of Joseph Brad- ford and Priscilla Gould Treat.<br><br> He at- tended the elementary schools of Monroe and later the Morgan Military Academy of Chicago, entering Cornell in 1894 in the course in science, and remaining three years. Then he entered the Harvard Law School, specializing in corporation law. On leaving Harvard, he became associated with the wholesale department of Mar- shall Field and Company, resigning four years later to establish the real estate firm of Helliwell and Treat in Chicago.<br><br> In came known as Treat and Peck. Three years later Treat gave up his affairs in Chicago to locate in New York, transact- ing an important volume of business under his own name, with offices at 65 Wall Street. He went to Seattle in 1904, and had since been extensively engaged in the real estate business there.<br><br> At Cornell, Treat was a member of Alpha Delta Phi, Fruija, Undine, Bench and Board, and the Football Association, and served on the Junior Ball Committee. He was an honorary member of the Seattle Press Club, a life member of the New York Press Club, and a member of the Travel- ers' Club of Paris, the Alpha Delta Phi Club of New York, the Rainier Club, the Seattle Golf Club, the Seattle Hunt Club, and the University and the Harvard Clubs, of Seattle. He was married on June 4, 1896, to Miss Olive Marion Graef, who survives him with two daughters, Priscilla Grace, and Loyal Graef.<br><br> Thomas B. Bryson '94 Thomas Bines Bryson died at his home in New York on September 5, after a brief illness. Bryson was born in Mechanicsburg, Pa., fifty years ago, and entered Cornell in 1890, receiving the degree of C.E.<br><br> in 1894. He was a member of Alpha Tau Omega. Upon leaving college, he was first em- ployed as a draftsman by the Pencoyd Iron Company of Philadelphia, and a year later he became associated with J.<br><br> W. Hoffman, where he obtained his early ex- perience in the contracting business, hav- ing been employed on heavy construction in railroad and harbor work. He went to New York about 1900 and entered the em- ploy of the John F.<br><br> O'Rourke Company, specializing in foundations and pneumatic machinery, and was in active charge of a number of difficult foundation jobs, among which was that of the Stock Exchange Building in Wall Street. Five years later he entered private practice, specializing in foundations and tunnels. He constructed one of the sections of the Fourth Avenue Subway in Brooklyn, adopting some orig- inal methods with great success.<br><br> For a number of years he had been vice-presi- dent and general manager of the Holbrook, Cabot and Rollins Corporation, and was widely known by reason of the many large contracts which he successfully carried out. In this capacity, he took a contract for the completion of Dry Dock No. 4 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a particularly dif- ficult piece of work which had been in pro- cess for six years or more by the use of coffer dams which collapsed.<br><br> Bryson sank a series of caissons through rock around the entire dry dock, and three lines of caissons under the floor. The contract was successfully completed well ahead of the specified date. Another contract was the section of the Aqueduct Tunnel from Cooper Union, New York, to Brooklyn, under the East River, a sixteen-foot bore through solid rock, reaching a depth of 750 feet below sea level.<br><br> At the time of his death he was actively engaged in the con- struction of the foundations for the piers and abutments of the new bridge from Philadelphia to Camden. This job in- volved the sinking of two of the largest pneumatic caissons ever built. Bryson has been closely identified with the American Society of Civil Engineers, and was at one time president of the General Contractors' Association of New York.<br><br> He was recognized as of preeminent ability in foundation work from a technical point of view, and was also distinguished by his ability to organize and handle men. He obtained not only the hearty coopera- tion of his associates, but the highest de- gree of loyalty and friendship. He was a member of the Cornell Club of New York, the University Club, the Metropolitan Club, the Engineers' Club, the Oakland Golf Club, and the Apawamis Country Club.<br><br> He was a nephew and close associate of Theodore Cooper, one of the most noted bridge engineers in the country. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Maude Win- ter Bryson, whom he married in 1910.<br><br> Fraser Brown '00 Fraser Brown died on June 22 at his home, 643 Palisade Avenue, Yonkers, N. Y. He was born on June 10, 1879, the s o n of Mr.<br><br> and Mrs. Goodwin Brown of Al- bany, came to Cornell from the Al- bany High School, studied law with the class of 1900, and was admitted to the bar. For many years he practiced law in Denver, Colo., and for the last seven years 28 CORNELL ALUMNI NEWS was associated with the firm of Hawkins, Celifield and Longfellow in New York.<br><br> He was a member of Delta Chi. He possessed an unusually quick and re- tentive mind and at the time of his death was an acknowledged authority on muni- cipal bond law. His book on municipal bonds, which had gone to the publishers shortly before his death, will be a valuable addition in this field, and is largely a sum- mary of lectures given by him before the Law School of New York University.<br><br> Fraser was a loyal Cornellian and at the time of his death was vice-president of the Cornell Club of Yonkers. He was a frue and intensely religious man, and his strength of character was clearly indicated by the courageous way he defended his ideals. His original point of view, delight- ful sense of humor, and familiarity with and appreciation of our best literature made him a welcome guest and a delight- ful friend.<br><br> He is survived by his widow, Charlotte Sewell Brown, and his mother. G. S.<br><br> R. '04. Mrs.<br><br> Ray H. Gramm '09 Mrs. Ray H.<br><br> Gramm died on August 15 in a hospital in New York, following a severe surgical operation.
