This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...Penn's three; whereas, if Vollmer had been disqualified instead of Shryock, Penn would have had first and second, eight points to Columbia's one. The curious point about the incident is that Vollmer, the Columbia freshman and former N. Y. A. C. star, collided with Shryock in the latter' lam. The meeting of the intercollegiate committee considered Penn's protest, but did nothing about it. I am in possession of some extremely interesting him, so Haas played guard, while Jackson and Ferree played forwards. Ferree has won his place over Paulson because he fits into the teamwork better, even though he is slower than his rival. Princeton's passing Saturday night was often beautiful to watch, for its swiftness and accuracy. The men seem to have taken to heart the lesson of the Yale game, viz., that long shots are likely to fail. Haas tried quite a few and succeeded in the majority of his attempts. It is quite easy to see now why Dartmouth is at the bottom of the league table. They simply can't shoot. It was well along in the second half, after Princeton had made several substitutions, before the visitors succeeded in making their first field goal. They rallied well toward the end, but Princeton easily held the lead. The summary: P RINCETON alumni living in Plattsburgh, N. Y., recently entertained the High School Club of that place in the Y. M. C. A. rooms and at a local theatre. The entertainment included stereopticon views and moving pictures of Princeton, and light rerefreshments. Accompanying the stereopticon views were talks by ohn P. Myers '08 on "Princeton's Buildings and Campus"; Captain Courtland Nixon '95 on "Class Rivalry"; the Rev. John Bailey Kelly '00 on "Self Improvement and the Ilonor System...

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1910 edition. Excerpt: ...has been destructive, not constructive. Much that Mr. Robbins says is most pertineiit and true. Yet the mere easing of entrance examinations, even if done systematically and scientifically, would serve only to admit more of the feeble and incompetent. Why should not Princeton take the lead in a reform here as well as in the work of the University? Surely this is a very practical matter, and one for more than casual letter-comment. It ought to be possible to work out a plan by which a boy's whole school record can be taken seriously into account on his entrance as well as his examination paper. The certificate system is a poor one as it operates to-day, and the examination system opens the door to the crammer, to the ignorant with strong nerves, and to the lucky. If the University should require the educational history of each boy who enters, if this were carefully studied by an entrance committee, and if this were made a real factor in admission, used in c0iijunction with entrance papers, the schools that do legitimate work would be greatly benefitted, cramming would be actually as well as theoretically discredited, and the calibre of entering students would be improved. I have in mind the case of a boy who gets nervous in examinations, who has done steady, faithful, secondgroup work for three years in a good school. Yet he failed badly in his preliminaries owing to nervousness, while others, much poorer students, passed on their "nerve." Such cases are not rare. But the advantages of such 21 system go further. It would tend to unify the course of a boy's education. The University would be able to lay its finger on the causes of weakness in the elementary and preparatory school stages. Parents might ultimately wake up to...

Eleanor S Pursuit

When Eleanor Pendleton met Louis M. Ream in 1911, it was love at first sight. She was a Broadway actress known for her beauty and dancing ability in musical comedy productions during the early twentieth century. Louis was tall, dark, and handsome and, as she soon discovered, the youngest son and presumptive heir of Norman B. Ream, one of Americas wealthiest men. The problem for Eleanor, as she learned after eloping with Louis, was her father-in-laws deep-seated aversion to the theatre; he regarded all actresses as disreputable. After an overnight trip to seek his fathers forgiveness and understanding, Louis disappeared. A blend of history and melodrama, H. Thomas Howells Eleanors Pursuit offers the biographical legacy of Eleanor Pendleton. It looks beneath the sensational newspaper coverage of 1911 to explore the confrontation between father and son and Eleanors anxious vigil while awaiting the return of her husband. When Reams lawyer arrives at her apartment instead of Louis and informs her the marriage is over, Eleanor collapses in disbelief. The lawyers take center stage, displacing the lovers. Chronicling one of the biggest celebrity newspaper stories of its day, Eleanors Pursuit follows the secret deal-making sessions, the stage-managed travesty of justice, and the ultimate courtroom battle. These events come to life as the witnesses and lawyers reveal the private details in their own words. Howell also tells how the public reacted to the story as it unfolded. With surprises at every turn, this biography explains the exceptional final stage of Eleanors pursuit.

Wilson Clemenceau Lloyd George and the Roads to Paris

"...an immense and highly impressive work of historical/political scholarship. [An] admirably detailed yet still eminently readable account of the lives of three of the twentieth century's most influential politicians..." —Manhattan Book Review "...impressively researched, with...fresh insights that will appeal to even seasoned diplomatic historians. Readers will be introduced to myriad rich details about the lives of the early-20th-century's most important world leaders." —Kirkus The three men who met in Paris for the most consequential summit conference of the twentieth century were very different men: Georges Clemenceau, 77, “The Tiger” who had spent five decades fighting for the ideals of the French Republic; David Lloyd George, who grew up in poverty in rural Wales, had entered the House of Commons at twenty-seven, had stood alone in his opposition to the South African War, and who rose to become prime minister and become the face of Britain’s defiance to the kaiser; and Woodrow Wilson, the lifelong academic who went from president of Princeton University to the president of the United States in the span of two years. They were, in many ways, much alike: They were three of the most brilliant men of their age. Each had the ability to charm and sway an audience, whether in the House of Commons, the French Chamber of Deputies or in a Princeton classroom. Yet, the document they produced, the Treaty of Versailles, was the “Carthaginian” peace that sowed the seeds of the Second World War. How did these brilliant men—who knew better—let it happen? For the first time, Robert F. Klueger traces their tumultuous histories until they reach Paris in 1919, Wilson determined to remake international law based upon the ideals of his Fourteen Points, Clemenceau every bit as determined to make France secure against another German invasion, and Lloyd George, leading a coalition government and a people determined to “make Germany pay,” until, at the very last, he tried and failed to reverse what he saw would be a tragic result.
