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
^.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
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-
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 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-
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
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
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

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
. “ 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,
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
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
“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.
<Sfie Nacre fcameSchokwcie
“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
“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

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
. “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.” -

“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 .”
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.
Tofie Npcre dome Sdidkwcicr
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
“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
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-
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

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
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
'SfieNacre dame Sdictecie
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.

— The first- meeting of the Writers’ Club was
held on Thursday evening of February 12th in
the journalism room of the. Library. The
evening was spent for the most part in the
relating- of anecdotes. Meetings are to be held
every second week on Monday night. The
motion to have refreshments served at each
meeting was enthusiastically agreed to by all
Jerusalem. Harry McCormick’s “Full Cargo
of Fun” fell overboard with a splash. Thomas
J. Tobin attempted a dissertation on “Why
is an Easter Egg,” but like Columbus before
him, couldn’t get -it to stand until he had
cracked it at the end. Rev. Thomas E. Burke
in “A Little What-Not” told of Sorin Hall
prefects, past and present. A one-act sketch,
“Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Without Tom, Without
the _Cabin,” (eliminated by Paul Scofield),
concluded the entertainment. The cast of
characters included Frank Fox as Francis
Bushaw, a traffic- cop; Harry McCormick as
Tiny Eliza, Robert E. O’Hara as Vitriolic
Villain; and Paul Scofield as David Work

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.

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
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.^
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. ~
Athletic Director Rockne has announced the
baseball schedule of Notre Dame, which includes
twelve games with nines of the Western Con-
ference. Of the seventeen games on the card,
eight are to be played on Cartier Field. Wis-
consin opens the season here with two games.
The team then tours Indiana and Illinois.
Next follow games at Notre. Dame with Michi-
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
for the season began last^Thursday 'in the
gymnasium. Following is the schedule as
arranged - .
April 16-17 — Wisconsin at Notre Dame.
April 21 — Purdue at Lafayette, Indiana.
April 22 — Wabash at Crawfordsville, Indiana.
April 23-24^-Illinois at Urbana, Indiana.
April 26 — Michigan at Notre Dame.

Tonight, John Murphy, national champion in
the high jump, will represent Notre Dame in
the invitation high jump at the annual indoor
games of the New York Athletic Club. This
is Johnnie’s second appearance in the East in
two weeks. On February 7th he tied with
Walter Whalen, at 6 feet, 3 3-8 inches, in the
indoor meet of the Boston Athletic Association.
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::
The “millionaire”, five startled the “fans” in
the opening game of the schedule by easily
defeating Corby, and if : they can repeat the
'£fte Hocre fitome Scholastic
/■ . •
trick their second place in the league is assured.
The present standing of the halls is:
- 4 ,
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 :
Notre Dame’s athletic calendar for next week
takes both the track s*nd the basketball, squad
abroad. The athletic events of the week are:
Sunday, 22nd — Basketball game between Walsh and
Corby. . -
Tuesday, 24th — Basketball game with Depauw Uni-
versity at Greencastle, Indiana.
Wednesday, 25th — Basketball game with Wabash
College at Crawfordsville, Indiana.'
Saturday, 28th — Notre Dame relay teams . in the
Illinois Relays at Urbana, Illinois. — E. m. s.
There are always at the opening of the track
season disputes as to who holds this record and
who holds that one. The list below presents
