History of the Short Story. 

BY FRANK E. DRUMMEY, *21. 

S a distinct type of literature, the short- 
story is not yet a century old. Probably 
the first short-story, as differentiated 
from stories that were merely short, 
was “The Cask of Amontillado” written by Poe 
in 1833. It is true that in earlier times there 
were literary types that were related to the 
short-story. The tales of Chaucer, the conte, 
and the fabliaux of the French in the Middle 
Ages are its predecessors and have qualities 
common to it. The tale and the vignette most 
nearly approach The short-story; yet as a per- 
manent and distinct species, the short-story is 
an American creation, and its nature and its 
coming into being was dependent negligibly on 
these older types of literature. Therefore this 
historical sketch* begins with an American 
author. 

^.Washington Irvjng was the first writer to pro- 
duce anything that closely resembled the short- 
story. He displayed a classic style, a natural 
sense of humor, and great skill with his subject- 
matter^ In 1819 he published “Rip Van Winkle ” 
and “The" Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” two great 
stories which, though technically tales,, trend 
toward the short-story. Irving led the way. Al- 
though he did not achieve the present type, he 
gave initial and directive impetus to the writers 


who did. He did secure, however, scope within 
limits, balance, proportion, and dexterity. 

Poe was growing to manhood while Irving 
was making literature' in America, and the older 
author influenced the younger probably more 
than any other writer or school. Poe took the 
tale as perfected by Irving and made of it the 
short-story. How did he do it? Primarily the 
feat was a work of technique. He conceived 
that if he’ could" write a story in which every- 
thing was subordinated to the climax and de-. 
nouement and if he could give the reader a 
single powerful impression, he would have done 
a new thing in literature. The ‘ 5 Cask of Amontil- 
lado” was the first story that realized his artistic 
aim. In all of his great works he achieved his 
ambition — totality of effect. But Toe wrote of 
the grotesque and impossible, hardly any of his 
stories present, much less solve, the problems of 
life. It was a propensity of Poe to take a situ- 
ation “a priori” and develop it. An exception 
must be taken to this statement, however, for 
Poe frequently did start and clear up a mystery 
situation. Poe innovated the detective story. 
Furthermore, although Poe did not use problems 
as the basis of his plots and although his subjects 
were not apropos to the highest development of 
the modern type, he had a rare precision in the 
use of words and was an artist of the highest 
quality. Hence, aside from creating the short- 
story, he gave it gravity and demonstrated its 
possibilities. Be it remembered, however, that 
his great contribution was technique. 

The author contemporary with Poe was Haw- 
thorne. Whereas Poe wrote of the fancied hor- 
rors of a diseased mind and sought effect, Haw- 
thorne portrayed the ethical, the fateful, and the 
mystical, and sought to present, and sometimes 
to solve, the problems of mankind. He was a. 
thinker — subtle, fanciful^ contemplative. To 
him human life was replete with questions. He 
saw that, if these questions were to bemost aptly 
presented, situations— -that is, conflicting, inter- 
ests — were vitally necessary. He tried to present 




2 q & Nacre 6ame©dxxa8cic 


idealism through reality. By adding to the 
technique of Poe the central thread of a situ- 
ation, Hawthorne moulded the short-story' into 
its present form. He' dignified it, also, and 
showed how well it could handle gripping 
problems. 

About this time Thackeray and Dickens were 
experimenting with the short-story. But, 
though their products were good, they affected 
the development of the type hardly at all. A 
new and short-lived writer appeared in Fitz- 
James O'Brien. He had Poe's technique and 
Dickens’ style. In contrast to the earlier writers, 
O’Brien wrote of the ordinary, matter-of-fact 
phases of living. Thus he secured a vastly wider 
field for the short-story and a far greater number 
of sympathetic readers. His premature death 
cut off the career of a promising author. Follow- 
ing him, Hale, with a weak plot, succeeded in 
writing a story that was great. His achievement 
was to popularize the great ideal of patriotism. 

Bret Harte, writing from the seventies, was 
first to gain world recognition for the Anerican 
short-story. Picturing California in the old days, 
he idealized the miner and western life. He was 
the first to write of a particular section of the 
country and to use local color successfully. -He 
opened up that field in which, of more recent 
writers, Hamlin Garland of Wisconsin and Mrs. 
Freeman of New England are the most out- 
standing. 

In contrast to Harte is Henry James, who 
was active toward the close of the century. He 
succeeded in putting recondite psychological a- 
nalysis into the garb of realism. Though many re- 
gard him as a mediocre writer, yet, if we consider 
the difficulty of his task, we must accord him fire- 
place of a great master, — for he puts the most 
delicate, tenuous mental problems into stories 
that are readable. With the success of James 
the short-story has demonstrated that the 
world is its scope, that its appeal is catholic. 

The one man of the latter part of the century _ 
whose mastery of story writing is exquisite is 
Stevenson. The perfection of his art is nearly 
fastidious; and it tends to give his stories a 
mechanical aspect. Aside from being classical, 
he is the polisher of this new type of literature. 
He received it undeveloped and crude; he left 
it smooth, graceful, artistic. Since Stevenson 
the best writer is Kipling. He is a good jour- , 
nalist, amazingly versatile, and the modern 
master of description. He has taken, over the 
American short-story and made it cosmopolitan. 


Undoubtedly the short-story is a distinctly 
American product. Irving, Poe, and Hawthorne 
are the trio which created this type. Probably 
the true conception- of all succeeding writers is 
not that they have added anything to the tech- 
nique of the short-story, but that they have 
popularized it and have opened up new fields 
for it. 

For the last thirty years an immense number 
of people have been using the short-story form 
for their writings. It is the thing of the hour; 
everybody is trying it. What the result may be 
is problematic. On the one hand, the short-story 
may pall and its freshness vanish. On the other 
hand, such a large number of writers will develop 
a critical reading public, and the gifted tyro will 
-be more easily discovered.' The short-story, at 
least extemallyrprobably will not remain a set 
form. It will vacillate from decade to decade. 
But the relation between this modern type of 
literature and our way of living is inseparable. 
Until our busy manner of life has passed, the 
short-story will continue intrinsically un- 
changed.

The Renaissance in Ireland. 

BY JOHN X. BALFE, ’20. 


“The Land of Saints and Scholars” — this is 
a glorious yet truly appropriate appellation 
for that fair isle. There can be no doubt that 
from the middle of the sixth until the dawn 
of the ninth century Ireland was the seat of - 
civilization. The darkness of the Middle Ages 
had already set in over the struggles, agony, 
and confusion of feudal Europe. “Greek,” 
says M. Darmesteter, “had elsewhere absolutely 
vanished.” Even such a man as Gregory the 
Great was completely ignorant of it. Again, 
M. Darmesteter puts the facts plainly when he 
says, “The classic tradition, to all other appear- 
ances dead in Europe, burst out into full flower 
in the Isle of Saints, and the Renaissance 
began in Ireland 700 years before it was known 
in Italy. During three hundred years Ireland 
was the asylum of the higher learning which 
took sanctuary there from the uncultured 
states of Europe.” 

These facts are, moreover, capable of com-, 
plete and manifold proof. Columbanus/ for 
instance, shows in his letter to Pope Boniface 
that he possessed a knowledge of Greek and x- 
Hebrew. Again we have St. Cummian’s discus- 


'fcfte Ncxre &ame$dx3krerie - 299 


sion of the Paschal question in his celebrated 
letter to his friend Segienus, abbot of Iona. 
Commenting upon this letter Professor G. 
Stokes says: “I call this letter a marvellous 
composition because of the vastness of its 
learning: it quotes, besides the Scriptures and 
Latin authors, Greek writers like Origen, and 
Cyril, Pachomius, the head and reformer of 
Egyptian monasticism, and Damassius, the 
last of the celebrated neo-Platonic philosophers 
of Athens, who lived about the year 500 and 
wrote all his works in Greek. Cummian dis- 
cusses the calendars of the Macedonians, 
Hebrews, and Copts, giving us the Hebrew, 
Greek, and Egyptian names „ of months and 
cycles, and tells us that he had been sent as 
one of the deputation of learned men a few 
years before to ascertain the practice of the 
. church of Rome. When they came to Rome 
they lodged in one hospital with a Greek and 
a Hebrew, an Egyptian and a Scythian, who 
told them , that the whole world celebrated 
the Roman and not the Irish Easter.” 

Concurrent with this great era of learning 
flourished the famous monastic schools. In 
450 St. Patrick established, at Armagh, the 
first Christian school in Ireland. From this 
“metropolis of civilization” radiated the in- 
fluence that linked all parts of Ireland into one 
cultured whole and then bestowed the new 
enlightenment upon the struggling continent. 
All the studies of the time appear to have been 
taught in them through the medium of the 
Irish language; not -merely theology, but 
arithmetic, rhetoric, poetry, hagiography, na- 
tural science, as then understood, grammar, 
chronology, astronomy, Greek, and even Hebrew. 

Perhaps the greatest school was that founded 
in 544 by St. Kerran at Clonmacnois, beside a 
curve in the Shannon not far from Athlone. 
This school had one advantage over all others 
in that it belonged to no particular race or clan. 
Its abbots aud teachers were drawn from many 
different tribes. Situated as it was almost in 
-the exact center of the island, it became a 
real university. A product of Clonmacnois, 
and probably the most distinguished scholar 
of his time in Ireland and Europe, was Alctiin. 
It was he who so affectionately remembered his 
alma mater that he secured from King Charles 
of France a gift- of 50 shekels of silver to which 
he added 50 more of his own and then sent 
them to Clonmacnois; - 

-Another very celebrated school was that of 


Bangor in Belfast Loch. - This was founded by 
Comgall between 550 and 560. Jocelineof Furness, 
speaking in the twelfth century, called it “a 
fruitful vine breathing the odour of salvation, 
whose offshoots extended not only over all 
Ireland, but far beyond the seas into foreign 
countries, and filled many lands with its abound- ’ 
ing fruitfulness.” The most distinguished of 
Bangor’s sons of learning were Columbanus, 
the evangelizer of portions of Burgundy and 
. Lombardy; St. Gall, evangelizer of Switzerland, 
and Duingal, poet, astronomer and theologian. 
The latter, at the instance of Charlemagne, 
founded the University of Pavia and also dealt 
iconoclasm its death blow in Western Europe. 

Lismore, the great college of the southeast, 
was founded by St. Carthach in the beginning 
of the seventh century. Cathaldus, the patron 
saint of Tarentum in Italy, was a student and 
professor in this college. His office states that 
Gauls, Angles, Irish, and Teutons came to hear 
his lectures. 

Other famous schools were: Clonard, where 
three thousand students were in attendance 
under St. Finnan; Clonfert, the alma mater of 
St. Brendan, the navigator, and St. Cummian, 
mentioned previously;. Innisfallen, where Brian 
Born was educated; Cork, and Iniscaltra. 
Among some of the continental students we 
find Dagobert II of France, who spent eighteen 
years at Slane in Meath, where the high kings 
ruled. Alfred the Great received his training 
at Clonmacnois. 

Besides those already mentioned we have the 
illustrious John Scotus Erigena, Dicuil and 
Clemens, all teachers in the court school of 
Charlemagne. Virgilius, who ruled in Salzburg, 
was the first to teach the sphericity of the earth. 
When we consider the intellectual accomplish- 
ments of these men, their place in European 
scholarship, we get a glimpse of the debt which 
the world and especially the Renaissance owes 
to the Gaelic scholars. While Europe was 
writhing under the yoke of barbarism, Ireland 
was producing her masters. As barbarism 
decayed these noble men crossed to the con- 
tinent and diffused their learning, thus giving 
the impetus to the new birth of learning in the 
following years. 

It is when the hour of conflict is over that 
history comes to a right understanding of the 
strife, and is ready to explain, “Lo, God is 
here, and we knew it not.” — Bancroft.

“O Mamma, see the nice new dollar Papa 
gave me for my birthday. ” 

‘ ‘ Wasn’t that kind of him? ” 

“Yep. I’m going to put it in my book after 
I write an eight on it, for I am eight years old 
today.” 

Jimmy Flynn was the only child of poor 
parents, who of necessity lived in an overcrowded 
tenement on Avenue “A.” Patsey Flynn, a' 
New York teamster, was a good-natured, hard 
working father whose only defect was intem- 
perance. He was a devoted husband, but his 
wife Maggie had little influence over him. 
Little Jimmie was Mrs. Flynn’s advocate in all 
dealings with Mr. Flynn." 

Two months after Jimmie’s birthday cele- 
bration Patsey Flynn was called to the bedside 
of his dying child. The condition of the little 
fellow was serious. He had been knocked down 
by an automobile while returning from school. 
The family doctor told the grief-stricken father 
that his son would not recover. Tears rolled 
down the weather-beaten face of Patsey as he 
knelt close to the mangled form of his beloved 
child! ' 

. “ Don’t cry. Papa, it makes me feel bad to see 
you weep. I’m happy. Mamma told me I am 
going to heaven soon.” 

“Yes, Jimmie, you are going to leave us.. I 
wish I was on the same road myself.” 

“O no! Papa. You must stay here and take 
care of Mamma, won’t you? ” 

“I’ll do anything for you, Jim.” 

“Please be good to Mamma. Keep away 
from drink for her sake.” 

“I pronuse you Jim never to have another 
drink as long as I live.” 

The little fellow’s vitality was nearly spent. 
After speaking a few words to his mother he 
breathed forth his innocent soul in the tiny, 
dingy bed-room. 

The weary days that followed the mournful 
and sleepless nights were gnawing at the weak 
and grief stricken soul of Mrs. Flynn. Scarcely a 
yern after Jimmie’s death Patsey laid his devoted 
wife beside Jimmie in Calvary Cemetery. In 
the midst of his trouble, contrary to the habit 
of sp many of his race, Patsey Flynn remained 
true to his promise. Many of his friends wanted 
him to drown his sorrows, but try as they might- 


'Sfie Nacre dame Sebckwrk?

they could not perstfade poor Patsey to take- 
even one glass of intoxicating liquor. As a safe- 
guard against his evil habit he always carried 
with him a little leather folder which contained 
a picture of Mrs. Flynn and Jimmie, and -the ' 
dollar bill that he had given his boy on Jimmie’s 
eighth birthday* 

Toward the latter part of January, 1914, the 
wharves along West Street were jammed with 
incoming freight which could not be moved on 
account of a heavy fall of snow. As soon as the 
weather grew somewhat milder the teamsters 
began to work overtime so. that the congested 
condition of the docks could be improved. One 
night, although fatigued from the hauling of the 
day, Patsey Flynn consented to work overtime. 
At midnight, the great electric lights still lighted 
the narrow -cobble-stone streets of lower Man- . 
hattan. The temperature stood at six below 
zero, while a northwest wind whistled defiantly 
as it wound its way in and out among the snow- 
covered wharves. - At eleven o’clock Patsey 
Flynn had put his horses in the stables. He 
then set out for his Eastside boarding house. 
He reached that section of the city, near Rector 
Street, which is as quiet at night as.it is busy 
during the day. Numb and tired from the extra 
hours of work, Patsey, in a dazed condition, 
made his way to a corner saloon. Instinctively 
he knew that a little whiskey would warm his 
body and stimulate his weary senses. He went 
up to the bar, gave his order, and searched in his 
pockets for the necessary quarter. In vain 
did he look for the twenty-five cent piece. Out 
came his pocketbook with Mrs. Flynn’s picture, 
Jimmie’s, and the treasured birthday gift. He 
was about to hand the bill to the bartender, 
when he spied the figure eight scrawled thereon 
and he withdrew it rapidly. His mind wandered 
back over the dark gloomy past. He saw 
his little son upon the death bed pleading with 
him to keep away from drink. Quickly he put 
on his heavy gloves and faced the piercing cold, 
leavingjhe glass with its contents untouched. 
There was no cross-town line that would bring 
him to his destination. Consequently he was 
forced to walk about two miles. 

The next morning Mike Donahue, while 
setting out on his beat, stumbled over a half- 
covered frozen body. After brushing off the 
snow Mike searched for ^identification marks. 
In one pocket he found a leather folder that 
contained a picture of a woman, probably the 
man’s wife, and also a picture of a little boy. 


On a card was written “Patrick Flynn.” 
Tightly grasped in the dead man’s frozen hand 
was a dollar bill with a large figure eight traced 
upon it. 

“Poor devil, if he had only bought a few 
drinks with that bill, instead of holding on to 
it, he might be alive today,” muttered Donahue 
as he covered the frozen body with a blanket. 


The Lucky Man. 

BY WILLIAM Pf-raBN, *20. 


On a midsummer’s day, I decided to take a 
ride into the .hills to refresh myself. Every- 
thing in the valley seemed to speak of heat. The 
cattle in the meadows stood listless in the shade' 
of motionless trees, while the sun beamed un- 
mercifully down on the dry stubble fields. When 
I arrived at a small cluster of farms I stopped 
at the first house for a drink of cool well-water. 
At the sound of the motor, a dog growled, but 
hesitated before leaving the shady spot where he 
had been sleeping. As I got out of the car a 
short, fat, jolly-looking farmer came out of 
ashed. - . ;~ 

“Pretty hot terday, ain’t it?” he drawled as 
he shoved-both hands into his overall pockets, 
straightened jup and with the precision of. a. 
marksman sent a mouthful of tobacco juice, in 
the general direction of the hitching-post. 

“ Yes, sir, it is. May I have a drink of your 
well-water?” I asked. - . ' ^ 

“Yer sure can. I’ve got the best well in this 
part of Hillsboro County even if I do say so. 
But we won’t drink water a day like this. Tho’t 
yer was a bill collector when I first seed yer 
cornin’ up the road. My wife’s high-toned an* 
all I do is pay fur some goodrfur-nothin’ rig 
she buys. Come along, stranger. Cellar ’s cod 
an’ so’s the dder. Yer know this cider I’m goin’ 
t’give yer is made of the best apples on tins old 
farm. There’s the tree over there near where 
the calf’s tied.” > . 

I looked towards the tree. Just beyond, on. 
the opposite hill, stood a larger and more modern 
dwelling than most New England farms have. 
The bam was new and shone like the sails of a 
huge ship beneath the glistening sun. The fields 
around the buildings were level and more ex- 
tensive than those I had previously seen. My 
curiosity was aroused so I ventured to ask my 
Jovial friend who was the owner of such a fine 
farm.- ------- . --;v.

“Never mind thet now. We’ll git in ter the 
cellar an’ have a drink o’ first-class cider. Then 
I’ll tell yer all about it.” So I followed my 
friend into a rather dark but decidedly refresh- 
ing cellar. On one side were huge bins of apples, 
potatoes and squash. On the other stood a row 
of barrels. 

“Sit right down on this box an’ I’ll draw some 
o’ the best cider yer ever tasted,” and he 
again gave vent to his enthusiasm by eject- 
ing a miniature deluge. Soon he was back and 
there was a twinkle in his eye as he poured out 
a glass of sparkling liquid. “Help yerself, 
stranger, an’ don’t be bashful. All the folks 
’ve gone t’ meetin,’ so make yerself t’ home.” 

After I had fully quenched my thirst I again 
asked him about the adjoining farm. “Oh, yes. 
Thet’s right, too. I wus goin’ t’ tell yer about 
thet farm, wan’t I? ” And once more he straight- 
ened up, released the flood gates, and shoved his 
hands into the spacious pockets. Having 
thought a moment, he scratched his rather 
shiny head, replaced his big straw and continued : 

“ Wal, stranger, when I wus a boy an’ goin’ t’ 
school in thet brick school house yer passed a 
short ways up the road, Jake Williams and me 
wus pals. We played hookey t’gether, swam in 
the crick t’gether, went' a’ fishin’ in father’s 
brook t’gether, snared rabbits t’gether an’ did 
most everything t’gether. Bein’ living so nigh 
each other an’ bein’ so much with each other, 
we wus more like brothers. Wal, everything 
wus nice as pie ’till a new gal came t’ school. 
Seems as if her dad ’d bought the old Hapgood’s 
place over there near the mill an’ so she’d come 
along too. Thet started things. Jake alius 
wanted t’ carry her books an’ so did I. The gal 
was willin’ thet both of us might carry the 
books but that wouldn’t satisfy Jake an’ me. 
No siree! I wanted t’ carry them books or not 
go at all. So did Jake. One night we had quite a 
fight an’ I got the books. Jake was pretty mad 
an’ didn’t come over to my place any more. So 
- the gal settled things for a bit and let Jake carry' 
the books one night an’ me the next. She was the 
best lookin’ girl in thet whole school. Sarah 
Tompson said so an’ Sarah oughta know seein’ 
thet she’d been t’ Boston onct and see’d other 
folks. Nancy, thet was her name, so we called 
her Nan fur short.” __ 

Here he straightened up and spat.' “Have 
another, stranger. Ever drink any better’n thet? 
Wal, Nan sure did dress t’ kill. Her dresses wus 
the purtiest you ever see; an’ how she’d fix her 


hair. Wal, things went along pretty much the 
same ’til Jake an’ me left school. Yer see, Jake 
wouldn’t leave ’till I did. But my dad wanted 
me on the farm as he wus gettin’ kinda old. So 
I left first and Jake left the next day. “Then 
came the Church Social. Never went t’ church 
afore then but Jake ’d got Nan if I didn’t go. 
So I went. We danced all night t’gether ’cept 
when Jake ’d get his turn. Both of us axed t’ see 
her home but she said she’d let both of us come 
‘cause it wus a church affair an’ she didn’t 
want t’ start a fight. So we both seed her home 
an’ after thet, first Jake ’d take her fer a ride an’ 
then I’d take her. If Jake ’d take his dad’s two 
horses, I’d hire the two plugs at the town stable 
so’s he wouldn’t get ahead a me. But he did 
in the end. Anyway, no matter what Jake ’d do, 
I’d try t’ do one better’n him. But when Jake 
joined the Sunday school where Nan used t’ 
teach, I let him go ’cause Nan ’d give me 
Sunday night instead. Gosh we was some fellas 
in them days,” and he laughed heartily. “Wal, 
Jake ’d seen a city fella all dressed up an’ so he 
got his dad t’ get him a rig like he’d seen in town. - 
So I saved up my money an’ sent to a place 
called” — here he scratched his head, spat, and 
put his hand into his pocket again — ‘ ‘ begins with 
Ch— lets’ see — ” ' 

“Is it Chicago?” I returned. 

“Oh yes, Chicowgo. Thet’s the place. An’ I 
got a jim dandy suit, hat like yours and boots t’ 
match. Gosh, an’ they cost darn near all a 
twenty dollars, too. Then I seed in a book 
where a fella wus givin’ Some sweets t’ a gal, so 
I beats Jake an’ buys Nan some sweets. Cy 
Brodbury, thet owns the store, treated me first 
rate an’ put them in a nice colored bag t’ boot. 
But Jake. He jus’ got his dad t’ buy him a 
whole box. Stranger, fur nigh onta eight years 
an’ four months, Jake an’ me wus rivals fin: Nan.” 

“Well, my good friend, I’m sure I can’t see 
how that explains / the fine farm over there on 
the hill.” I interrupted. 

“Wal, Jake owns thet farm. He’s quit now 
and don’t hev t’ work any more. While here I 
am worldn’ from mom ’til night trying to keep 
things ahead. Have another glass ’fore you go 
stranger.” * 

. “And did Jake marry Nan?” I inquired as I 
partook of his generous hospitality. 

“Nope,” answered my friend with a twinkle 
in his eye as Tie straightened up, spat, shoved 
his hands deeper into his pockets and added, 
“but I did.” -

Timothy Kelly, the butcher, in an attempt 
to regain the favor ’ and patronage of Mrs. 
O’Flaherty, lost by a recent deal, receives the 
following over the telephone: 

“Will, will, will, Timmy! ’Tis no more 
than I expected that ye would be wantin’ 
me trade agin. So you’ve decided that ye 
can’t tread on the toes of an O’Flaherty, have 
ye? Will might ye av known it before, but I 
kin say with no regret that it’s too late now.” 


“Niver ye mind now, Timmy, wid yer 
apologies. ’Tis not me that wouldn’t be givin’ 
a desarvin’ Irishman me trade, an ’twas ye 
that had a better chance than miny another. 
Niver a turn of yer hand did ye do out of yer

niver did I hear the likes of yez. Ye haven’t 
gone so crazy man as not to remimber that 
ould dried soup-bone ye sint me jist the other

that would make better soup. ’Twould be a

house before I’ll iver do any more tradin’

“Well, Manuel, I’ll soon be out of this God- 
forsaken country. Another month more to 
finish the job, and I’ll return to the best little 
girl in the States.” 

“Si, Senorf ” Manuel interrogated politely. 
“If it hadn’t been for her,” continued Dick, 
“I would never have taken this job. But as it is 
I’ll finish my work here with enough money to 
build our little bungalow, and then — we’ll live 
happy ever after,” he concluded laughingly. ^ 
“That will be fine, sir. Is there anything else 
you wish of me this evening?” 

“No, Manuel. You may go now.” 

“Buenos Noches, Senor .” 

“Goodnight.” 

Manuel crept through the door and into the 
languorous southern night. Arriving at his 
home, he took a bottle from under his- coat and 
drained it in long, thirsty gulps that proclaimed 
the habitual drinker. Tossing the empty bottle 
aside, he relaxed himself on his pallet and tried 
to sleep. But something kept hammering at his 
brain— an irritating fact which he tried in vain 
to ignore and finally acknowledged by reflecting 
on the events of the now closing day. “So Dick 
Vail is going back to the States next month/’ 
he mused, “back to the girl — the girl whose 
picture stands on his desk— the girl with those 
big brown eyes.” Ever since his master had 
placed that picture on the desk, Manuel had 
been devouring it with his eyes. Night and day 
he had feasted on her beauty and the big brown 
eyes. Those eyes had held him in a charm 
ever since he had first seen the picture — and to" 
think that they were only for his master,; a mere 
gringo. Why should they not belong to him, 
Manuel Rodiguez, the last of a .once noble 
family? His father had been president of theprbv- 
ince, and if the recent revolution had not inter- 
posed, Manuel Rodiguez' himself would now be 
president. He was far above any “ white,” and to 
think that those big brown, eyes were only for a 
lowly gringo while the gringo’s servant, who 
was better born by far, would have to be content 
with merely looking at her picture. Noble 
blood 0/ many centuries flowed in his veins — and 
had he not been graduated from a college in the/ 
States which was at least as good as the gringo’s? 
And the engineer was going back to her next 
month — back to her of the big brown eyes.

An idea of revenge slowly developed in the 
mind of the half-intoxicated servant, and when 
he finally recognized it he laughed in maudlin 
glee. Why had he not thought of that before? 
If he could only talk to her she would no longer 
care for this gringo, for Manuel Rodriguez was a 
supreme lover, possessed of many winning 
qualities which the engineer had not. Surely 
she would forsake Vail instantly. He had seen 
it happen before. Had he not stoleh many a 
blushing senorita from her lover? He could do 
it again if he only had the chance. With this 
last thought he fell into a drunken stupor, with 
a contented smile on his swarthy face. . 

Vail was somewhat surprised the next morn- 
ing when Manuel asked: “Sir, would it be 
possible for me to go to the States with you? I 
have become attached to you, sir, and I would 
like to go very much. Perhaps I could do odd 
work around your bungalow.” To entreaty he 
added a smile that masked the purpose in his 
heart. 

“Why, Manuel, I’ve never given the matter 
much thought. But it isn’t a half-bad idea. 
You’ve been a mighty good servant, and it is 
true that we will need someone around the 
bungalow. I’ll tell you what; I’ll write to the 
little girl to-night and ask her about it.” 

That night after Manuel had imbibed as 
usual, he reflected on the perfection of his plans. 
He was sure of success. Nothing interfered now. 
To be sure he had been a good servant, but how 
was his master to know that his labors had been 
all for her of the big brown eyes. He had often 
adored those eyes, when his master was not 
present, and then gone about his tasks singing 
snatches of Old Castilian love songs. It was 
absurd to think that anything could interfere 
with his plans, and soon he would have her for 
his own. 

The days* went quickly — and every night 
Manuel consumed huge quantities of cheap 
liquor, then lay back to purr in sleek contented- 
ness as he contemplated his own cunning. Finally 
her answer came. Manuel handed the letter to 
Vail and then turned, as usual to his menial tasks. 
What did he care for the letter, except that it 
came^from her? He knew what it contained, 
and already he was making preparations to 
leave with his master. 

..In cleaning up the engineer’s desk he came 
across the letter, open in front of her picture, and 
out of curiosity to : know just how she Had 
worded her approval of the project, he bent to 


read it. Several underscored . lines, half way 
down the page, caught his curious eyes: “Dick, 
please don’t bring that dirty brown thing home 
with. you. You know how I detest, those half- 
negroes.” 

A party of fellow engineers found Vail the 
next morning sitting at his desk, his head 
between his outstretched arms, as he faced her 
picture. Under his left shoulder blade 
protruded the handle of a knife and fastened to 
it dangled a note : “A Love Token to Big Brown 
Eyes.” 


“It’s Done Every Day.” 


BY FRANK WALLACE, ’23. ' ' 

“Weir I’ll be—” 

“Why, Dubie Dails! Where are you bound 
for, anyway?” 

“Cleveland. And yourself?” 

“Sqme place. From there I take a train to 
Oberlin.” 

“Well, this is what I call luck! Why, we. can 
have an all-day date on the train; nothing to do 
but sit back in these chairs, watch the scenery 
slide by, and tell lies. Oh, boy!” 

“ And I was figuring on a dull day. Here’s 
some candy? Oh, Dubie, if we only had a victrola. 
here, so we could dance.” * 

“Gee, Eleanor, that would be great. And you 
are some little dancer, too. I certainly enjoyed 
those two dances we had together the -other 
night. Oh, Daddy!” 

“Oh, anybody could dance with you, Dubie. 
Where do you get all those new steps? They are 
swell.” 

‘‘What you trying to do — show me a good 
time? That is the kangaroo waltz. If you want 
to see some real dancers, just come to Bellaire; 
that is where they all live.” 

“Oh; is .that so? You have a better opinion of 
that old town of yours than I have.” 

‘ ‘ Now; Eleanor, you must admit all the fellows 
are good-looking.” -- 

“Are. you supposed to be a sample?” 

“Well, I would hardly be an average; you 
could not. expect them all -to be as classy as I 
am. 

“Say, young fellow, you might tell that to a 
blind man, but from the looks of you I pity 
the rest.” ■ ^ ^ ~ 

“Oh, I guess we shape up about as well as 
that gang of girls from your town.”

“You seem to like them pretty well.” 

“Oh, I go over now and then to make them 
happy.” 

“How about that girl you were telling me 
about — who had you guessing all the time? 

“Well, she is different. Say, Eleanor, she is 
great — the only girl who could ever treat me 
rough and make me like it.” 

“Oh yes, I have heard all that before — and if 
there is anything I dislike it is to hear a fellow 
talking about some other girl all the time.” 

“Oh, is that so? How about that Bing, 
who sends you special deliveries and telegrams 
just because you like them? I don’t think I ever 
could be that far gone.” 

“Well he has brains anyhow. And that is 
more than I can say for that friend of yours.” 
“Now, Eleanor, I don’t like you for that. I 
never like to hear any girl talk about another. 
So let’s forget the argument and not spoil our 
day. Who was the fish that bought this candy?” 
“Well, you don’t have to eat it.” 

“Wow!- Somebody getting sore, eh? Gee, 
Eleanor, maybe you don’t look swell today. 
Where did you buy the curls? — shucks! guess I 
have done it again. Everytime I try to kid a 
girl she gets mad. Honestly, Eleanor, I didn’t 
mean anything. I don’t like to hurt girls. 
Smile, now, won’t you? Well, don’t cry, for 
heaven’s sake! All these people will think we 
are married or something.” — 

“Well, I — I don’t like you any more.” 

“Gee, Eleanor! haven’t I apologized? 
were kidding too, you know. And if I 
something about your Bing, wouldn't 
tell me about it?” 

“Oh, I’m not mad; but we cannot be the 
same any more.” 

“What do you mean, Eleanor?” 

“Oh, there are lots of things I might have 
told you and shown you; but now I can’t.” 

- “Oh, you’ll get over that. I thought you were 
going to cry. I would have been in a nice fix 
then. Expect I’ll have to quit kidding girls. 
But there’s the call for dinner. Let’s eat and 
make up.”

It has ever been the purpose of Notre Dame 
to foster patriotism and to instil into her sons, 
the principles of true Americanism, to the end 
that, going forth into life as 
Washington’s men and not as mere soulless, 
Birthday. money-making machines, they 
may propagate those lofty 
ideals fundamental to the welfare of the nation. 
Hence we pause to-morrow, together with 
all other true Americans, to look back and 
to contemplate again the heroic figure of “The 
Father of Our Country,” that we may thereby 
gain new inspiration for our lives. We celebrate 
Washington’s Birthday, not so much. to praise 
him — who, being above praise in this life, has 
far less need of it now — as to learn for ourselves 
the lesson of his great life, in its expression of 
that real American spirit, which has lived down 
the years and still preserves this nation in a 
sturdy, righteous, God-given independence and 
makes it champion fearlessly the Right, though 
the rest of the world be opposed. On this day, 
too. we thank God again for having given us so 
noble a hero in our hour' of need, and pray Him 
that George Washington, the incarnation of 
victory on the .field of battle, the bulwark of 
dear-sighed justice in the halls of legislation, 
the model of patriotism and citizenship in' his 
home, may ever be the guiding star to the 
destinies of our Republic. — w. h. r. 


The size of the audience which heard the 
high-class concert of Josef Koneeny in Wash- 
ington Hall last Saturday evening was by no 
means a credit to the student 
De Gustibus. body of Notre Dame. The 
quality of this artist is sufficient 
to fill any theatre in any civilized town. People 
in the large cities pay premium prices for a seat 
to hear this distinguished violinist, but here 
only a few were interested enough to attend. 
The great majority prefer, as it seems, a vulgar 
vaudeville or a medley of cheap noises entitled 
“Jazz.” Surely one might expect to find in a 
university a much larger proportion of men of 
culture and refined tastes, appreciative of the 
better things. One can .see the cheap show and 
hear cheap music at any time, but the oppor- 
tunity to enjoy an artist is all too rare. It is 
pathetic that students should show such lack of 
appreciation of the worth-while in art. One 
does not have to be bom with a taste for the 
artistic: he can cultivate, progressively an ap- 
preciation for the best by getting acquainted 
with the best. A concert such as that of Satur- 
day is a part of the student’s education and 
he owes it to himself to make the most of 
such a privilege. — w. A. p. 


Industrial turmoil is undermining the social 
and political structure of the centuries. Bolshe- 
vism is raging in Russia; radicalism, anarchy, 

and socialism are rife in 
Our National Peril. Italy, Hungary, and 

Germany; strikes, unrest, 
and profound discontent are threatening the 
very existence of our American institutions. 
The heroes of a hundred battlefields have fought, 
many of them to the death, to protect those 
institutions' from the injustice of a tyrannical 
power and the magalomania of an ambitious 
emperor. How long shall we remain impassive 
while industrial evils endanger the welfare of 
this nation? How long shall we permit these 
evils to prepare the way for bolshevism, anarchy, 
socialism, and revolution? Are we to dethrone 
our own dignity, ruin our own power, and 
sound the very signal of our own destruction? 
Signs of revolution are evident in every quarter 
of the industrial world. We can no longer deceive 
ourselves; the dangers of revolution are im- 
minent. Capital, Wwilling to yield to the 
demands of labor, is entrenching its forces and 
fortifying its position; but Labor is determined 
to use every means in its power to undermine 



'SfteNocredcnneStiwIaffGK?

those fortifications and scatter those forces. 
A. terrible conflict threatens, and unless the 
workers can be pacified in some peaceful way, 
we are going to behold a scene of civil and social 
strife such as America has not yet witnessed. 
The toilers will no longer sell their labor as a 
mere commodity on the market. They are 
dependent solely upon their labor for main- 
tenance and they refuse to leave longer their 
lives and the lives of their families to the 
mercy of the wildly-fluctuating law of supply 
and demand. Thus the industrial condition is 
critical. A serious modification of the present 
wage-system is necessary, and must be imme- 
diately effected if industrial stability is to be 
secured and the impending national catastrophe 
averted. We must establish in industry co- 
operation and operative ownership, which will 
give the workers a voice in production, a por- 
tion of the interest, and a share of the profits. 
Until this is accomplished the welfare of our 
nation remains in dire peril. — c. R. p. 

In consequence of the numerous and grave 
problems distracting the world today the 
public mind is no longer focused on the matter 

of education. The 
Education on Credits, ordinary citizen, whose 

chest expands to ab- 
normal proportions at the mention of the 
nation’s educational advance, is oblivious of 
the great number of grossly ignorant graduates 
turned out yearly by our. high schools. Only 
large employers and others similarly situated 
are aware of the deplorable lack of competency 
on the part of these merely nominal graduates. 
Educational authorities agree that entrance 
examinations of the right kind, if required, 
would reduce considerably the rosters of our 
-colleges. Obviously, there is something wrong 
with our system of pedagogy : it is not producing 
by any means the proper results. There are, 
no doubt, several reasons, but the blame can 
"be laid for the most part upon the credit scheme. 
A credit represents a specified number of hours 
of preparation' and recitation spent by the 
student on a certain subject. It stands as a 
rule not for what the student knows but merely 
for the time passed — often entirely wasted — 
in the classroom. It is admittedly impossible to 
measure either the quantity or the quality of a 
— man’s education by the length of time he has 
spent in acquiring it. Hence, it is quite unfair 
to place the diligent, hard-working scholar on 


the same plane with the careless, indifferent 
student. The credit system naturally fails of 
its purpose. It has in a way bridged the gap 
between high school and college, but the way 
is bad — a way in which a large number of young 
men, whose remotest aim is to acquire knowledge, 
can and do slip into college. Neither diploma 
nor credits can 'take the place of the entrance 
examination. If our schools, both higher and 
secondary, are to be duly efficient towards their 
purpose, the credit system must be promptly 
discarded. — E. w. m. 


Detroit Orchestra Here on Monday. 


An attraction of exceptional merit is 
scheduled for Notre Dame in the concert to be 
given in Washington Hall Monday afternoon, 
February the 23rd, at 3:00 oclock, by the 
Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In its three 
years of existence this organization has taken 
its place among the foremost of American 
orchestras, and its seventy-five members have 
earned from the critics of Chicago and New 
York the very highest praise. The ballet suite. 
“Sylvia,” by Delibes, as played by the Detroit 
Orchestra is pronounced a marvel of musical 
interpretation, and the celebrated “Nutcracker” 
suite, by Tschaikowski, has always proved a 
strong and popular number — both of which 
selections are on the Notre Dame program. 

Citizens of Detroit a few months ago sub- 
scribed $250,000 for the maintenance of the 
Detroit Orchestra during the season of 1919- 
20, and then further subscribed nearly $1,000,- 
000 to build for it in Detroit a suitable audi- 
torium as a permanent home. That Detroit’s 
faith and pride in its Orchestra is well justified 
has been evidenced by the reception the organ- 
ization has received in Chicago, Cleveland, 
Pittsburg, and other cities in which it has* 
recently appeared. - ~ 

Victor Kolar, assistant-conductor of the 
Orchestra, of which Ossip Gabrilowitsch is the 
distinguished conductor, will lead the musicians 
in the University program. Mr. Kolar was 
born in Budapest in 1888, and was for several 
years a proteg^ of Kubelik, the famous violinist, 
who besides teaching the young Kolar made it 
possible for him to have lessons from his own 
great teacher Sevcik. While a student ut the 
Prague Conservatory, Kolar studied compo- 
sition with Anton' Dvorak and acquired ja. 
thorough musical education, including special

instructions in conducting. He graduated from 
the Conservatory in 1904. Two years later he 
came to this country and became an American 
citizen. The excellence of his violin playing 
and his rounded musicianship promptly pro- 
cured for him a place with the Pittsburg 
Symphony Orchestra, under Emil Paur. Eater 
he went to the New York Symphony as assistant 
to Walter Damrosch, where he remained until 
last fall, when he came to Detroit as assistant 
conductor to Mr. Gabrilowitsch. During the 
current season he has had every opportunity 
to prove his worth, and it is due to merit alone 
that he has rapidly become one of the foremost 
of the younger men in music in America. The 
appearance of his compositions on programs by 
Mr. Gabrilowitsch has made him favorably 
known as a composer of resource and originality. 

The students of Notre . Dame should feel 
particularly grateful for this classic treat fur- 
nished them by the University. Owing to the 
great demands made upon them by an admiring 
public, it has been only with great difficulty 
that the management of this orchestra has been 
able to grant Notre ' Dame a place in their 
itinerary. — T. h. b.

Athletic Notes. 

/ 

Track: Notre Dame, 68; Wabash, 18. 


— 'Forty-five of the Notre Dame alumni, mem- 
bers of the class of 1908, have completed arrange- 
ments for the placing of a bronze bust of Father 
Cavanaugh, former president of Notre Dame, 
in the Old Students Hall, when that building 
is erected. Mr. A. M. McCormack, the noted 
sculptor of Washington City,, has been engaged 
to do the piece. These Alumni purpose to pay 
in this way a worthy and permanent tribute to 
their “Ard Righ,” or High King, as Father 
Cavanaugh was affectionately known to them 
in their school days at Notre Dame. The term 
is said by' the Gaelic historians to have belonged 
to the Cavanaughs of Leinster. ~ ' 

— Sixty-five Seniors enjoyed their last pre- 
Lenten social affair at a festal in the Rotary 
Room of the Oliver Hotel last Sunday night.. 
In reminiscence they tripped lightly over their 
four years at the University, hurled mirthful 
bombs at faculty members and fellow-seniors, 
and one or two of. the speakers ventured to 
prophesy concerning the futures of the near- 
graduates. Thomas H. Beacom presided at the 
merry-making which followed the dinner. 
Charlie Davis' Jazz Band furnished instrumental 
selections, and Messrs. J. Lyle Musinaker, Alfred 
N. Slaggert, Ralph Domke and W. Michael 
O’Keefe entertained vocally with “A Bit o’ 
Better Melody.” Edward Doran in “Sunshine 
vs. Moonshine” handled the case for the 
defendant. William C. Havey, introduced by 
the toastmaster as the “Disraeli of Notre 
Dame,” made a plea for the downtrodden -of 


By taking first in every event but one, the 
Notre Dame men easily defeated the Wdbash 
athletes last Saturday in the opening meet of 
the season, by the score of 68 to 18. The “Little 
Giants” secured their only first place, in the' 
440-yard dash. Kasper won this race, but was 
disqualified by the judges for fouling on a turn. 
Manley, of Wabash, who finished second, was 
awarded first place. Miles won the 40-yard dash 
after a close race with Patterson. Wynne won. 
the hurdles from Nabor, of Wabash, .Starrett 
finishing a good third. Murphy, in the two- 
mile event, furnished the surprise of the meet 
by holding a steady pace throughout the race 
and winning in 10 minutes, 9 3-5 seconds. 
Heuther, a teammate of Murphy,. finished 
third. The Notre Dame high jumpers, Douglas, 
Hoar, and Griniger took all three places in 
their event.

Meet with Wisconsin. 

This afternoon, at three oclock, the varsity 
track team meets the Wisconsin team in the 
second dual meet of the season, in the Notre 
Dame gymnasium. The meets with Wisconsin 
in former years have always been close and 
exciting. The contest of today promises to be 
as thrilling as the former ones. Wisconsin is 
bringing a strong team and the strength of 
the Gold and Blue was well evidenced in the 
recent meet with Wabash. It is requested by. 
the athletic management that the spectators 
occupying the bleacher seats remain seated 
until the meet is over. A few years ago we 
lost a meet to Illinois because a student jumped 
from a bleacher seat in front of an Illinois 
. runner, knocking the runner down.- 

Meet with Illinois. 

On next Saturday the varsity track team 
travels to Champaign, Illinois, to compete 
with the strong team of Illinois University in a 
dual meet. The outcome of this meet is a 
matter of doubt. Illinois has always been a 
formidable opponent of Notre Dame. Last 
year we lost to the Illini by a small margin. 
Illinois has been notably strengthened this 
year by the return of some of its pre-war run- 
ners, among whom is Phil Spink, the middle- 
distance star. — E. J. MEEHAN.

Basketball: Notre Dame, 29; Detroit, 26. 

In the most exciting basketball game of the • 
season, Notre Dame defeated the clever quintet 
of the University of Detroit last Saturday after-., 
.noon, 29 to 26. Encouraged by their two recent 
victories, the Gold and Blue courtmen smashed 
their way through the Wolverine defense, 
which in the early minutes of play seemed 
impregnable, and registered tally after tally 
in a manner that brought the crowd to their 


feet. The first half opened with a “get-’em- 
quick” offensive on the part of Detroit. The 
local men made scrappy but vain attempts to 
stop the effective work of Voss, Detroit’s 
giant center, and of McElwee. With the score 
15 to 4 against them, the Gold and Blue bas- 
keteers suddenly found themselves and began a 
twenty-minute bombardment which literally 
bewildered the visitors. The half ended with 
Notre Dame on the small end of a i7-to-i2 
score. The second half opened with Detroit 
determined to sustain her lead and with Notre 
Dame equally determined to overcome it. 
Leo' Ward, who held down Kiley’s place at 
forward, performed brilliantly during the fast 
half. Outweighed by his opponent, the plucky 
little forward swept the court from end to 
end and made the victory possible by his 
sensational baskets. Harry Mehre, though 
guarded closely by the Wolverines, managed to 
extricate himself consistently and succeeded in 
caging three clean ^ baskets. Anderson and 
Brandy fought furiously, and broke up the 
scoring formations of the Red and White with 
sureness. Kennedy pushed Voss to the limit, 
and in addition achieved a field-goal and a 
basket. Both teams battled tenaciously to the' 
last second of play. For Detroit, Voss and 
McElwee starred. 

Basketball. Notre Dame, 33; Depauw, 38. 

In a thrilling court duel, Notre Dame bowed 
before the fast Depauw quintet last Tuesday, 
38 to 33. The game went five minutes over 
time, and Depauw was fortunate in counting 
two baskets and a free throw within the extra 
play. In the first half Notre Dame rushed the 
Depauw men from one end of the court to the 
other and broke up with ease both their de- 
fensive and offensive formations._ Harry Mehre 
performed phenomenally during ^ this period,' 
caging seven clean baskets from difficult angles 
on the court-. The score stood 20 to 1 1 at the 
end of the first half. In the second period the 
Gold and Blue men began again, to display 
Dorais’ heady tactics. Realizing the ability 
of Mehre at caging, the Depauw quintet covered 
him throughout the second half, with the 
result that the giant forward was able to get 
but three baskets. With the Notre Dame star 
boxed, the Greencastle aggregation took a 
spasm of scoring, in which Carlisle, Cannon, 
and Mendenhall featured. 

The locals were still leading, however, by 


'fcfie Hocre fcameSchokwrie

seven points and the game was nearly finished 
when the Depauw stars, taking advantage of a' 
momentary relaxation on the part of Notre 
Dame, ran up four baskets, giving them an 
advantage of one point. Mehre tied the game 
with a free throw as the final whistle sounded. 
Referee Cook ordered five extra minutes of 
play. Though fighting at their best, the Gold 
and Blue failed to check Mendenhall and 
Carlisle, who added two more baskets to the 
Depauw score, and Gibson was successful in a 
free throw. Mehre, Anderson, and Kennedy 
displayed the proverbial fighting spirit of Notre 
Dame. For Depauw, Mendenhill and Carlisle 
starred. — affred n. slaggert.^

Wabash Ai.ibi. 

Under the heading “Irish Defeat Tittle 
Giants by 24-14 Score” the Wabash “Bachelor” 
seriously offers the following alibi: “One thing 
which may have had something to do with the 
result of the game was the fact that the contest 
was staged on a dirt floor, on which the Scarlet 
were entirely at sea, being unable to cope with 
the bumps and rocks” (The italics are ours.) 
We wonder if they attribute the 68-to-i8 track 
defeat of last week to those same bumps and 
rocks. We know of one. “Rock ’’ that has been 
a real stumbling block to Wabash on various 
occasions within-'the last eight years.

Hockey: Notre Dame, 4; Culver, 3. 

Captain Castner’s hockey crew defeated a 
second time the seven of the Culver Military 
Academy at Culver last Saturday, 4 to 3. 
The game was “nip and tuck” throughout and 
at times decidedly rough. Captain Castner 
caged the rubber for each of the Notre Dame 
tallies, and as usual Hartley Anderson featured 
in the offense. Dave Hayes, in his first appear- 
ance, worked well at the goal position. The 
“puck-chasers” are to meet the team of the 
Great Takes Training Station at Evanston 
today in a contest which should require their 
best efforts. ~

gan, Indiana, Michigan “Aggies,” Valparaiso, 
and Iowa. Five more dates away from home 
and the Purdue game on Cartier Field complete 
the season. If Coach Dorais’ men can go through 
such a schedule with complete success, there 
will be no doubt about the baseball honors in 
the collegiate baseball of the West. "Practice

Interhall Basketball.. - 

Corby defeated Badin in the only game of the. 
Interhall schedule played last Sunday afternoon. 
The Corby ites’ i8-to-4 victory over Badin 
indicates much improvement and a possible’' 
chance of their taking the championship honors 
from Brownson. Flynn performed in the stellar 
role for Father Haggerty’s men. Sorin has 
withdrawn from the race, on accountof im- 
possibility of keeping a representative five out 
to play on the afternoon schedule. Sorin’s 
game scheduled for last Sunday with Brownson 
is forfeited 2 to o, and the postponed Sorin-Badin ; 
game of January 18th goes to Badin/ The 
cancellation of Sorin’s schedule leaves but one 
game for tomorrow, in which Corby and Walsh 
will meet for the second time this season::

Relay Championship to Corby. 


In the scheduled relay of last Saturday 
Walsh won a hotly contested race from Brown- 
sonT" The teams ran evenly until Ed. Bailey, 
running fifth for Walsh, gave his team a notable 
lead. The time of the race was i minute, 
41 1-5 seconds. On last Tuesday Badin for- 
feited to Corby, and Sorin forfeited to Walsh, 
in what were to be the final races of the Interhall 
series. Thus Corby Hall wins the Interhall 
relay championship, having gone through the 
series without a defeat. The champions pre- 
sented a uniformly well-balanced aggregation, 
and in a race against Sorin on the night of 
February 7th equalled the Interhall record. 
In a race against Walsh they ran within ^three- 
fifths of a second of the record. The cham- 
pionship team is composed of Desch, Stowe, 
Dant, Oseau, Ficks, and McIntyre. Walsh 
was runner-up, having won three races and lost 
one. Following is the final standing of the teams :
