College News and Departmental Notes: The Administration Club Picnic

by Departmental notes - 1917

On May 12, the Administration Club made their annual spring survey of the bosky dells adjacent to the Strayer home in Fieldstone. Although the chief business of the occasion was to eat, the experts made a few preliminary field experiments on such highly important matters as Causes of Retardation in the Potato Race, The Significance of the Initial Spurt in High Jumping, The Value of Rest Periods to the Tired Educator, and How to Prevent Over Learning in the Preliminaries. Professor Strayer demonstrated How Not to Umpire a Baseball Game, and as an expression of approval for this and some other matters, the club, through Miss Arnold, presented him with a pair of brass candlesticks. Mrs. Strayer was made the recipient of a handsome brass tray as a recognition of her high score as Hospitable Hostess; the orator on this occasion was Mr. Meeker. Perhaps a word is due Mr. Hart, who as near-chef and pur-veyor-in-general ably expedited the free and unrestricted circulation and assimilation of the very plentiful and satisfying succession of eatables. The hundred or so members who were present departed with a comfortable feeling that a high performance score had been made by all, and that the memory of this 1917 Survey would be one of the most precious unwritten documents in the archives of the Administration Club.
