Sel m a Isenburger,
The Moving' Finger Writes, and having writ
Moves ong Nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Lineg
Nor all your Tears Wash out a VVord of it.',
Once more, dear friends, the Oracle hath spoken,
And We of 1907, herein essay
To clothe for you in forms rnayhap imperfect,
A portion of those accents grave and gay.
We've loved our task-with eyes bent on the issue'
We've loved it for the lessons it has taught,
VVe've loved it for itself, but more than all else,
VVe've loved it for the comradeship it brought.
And, now, 'twixt fear and hope, We bring it to you
This token of our labor and our love,--
Enough if aught it holds Within its covers,
To smiles or sighs content its readers move.

Of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these-It might have been
Unce! more we send forth this book among our discriminating
friends for their criticism, favorable or otherwise, and though we have
the customery Greeting and L'Envoi, we deem it wise to insert here a
few remarks by way of comment,
It has been our purpose to enlarge the scope ofthis year's "Grade"
and make it more truly a book representative of the entire College, while
at the same time not to destroy its identity as a distinctly Junior Class
Book. Wfhether we have succeeded or not, it is for our readers to
VXf'ith a comfortable theory that the Editors' valuation of such a
book as this speedily becomes that of its readers, we will refrain from
making this preface a series of apologetic and deprecatory remarks for
its obvious imperfections, lest we be taken seriously. We therefore give
it to you with 'a confidence gained from having done our best, and if
aught there be, between these covers, deserving of your censure or dis-
pleasure, we plead in extenuation our inexperience.
Wfork demands part payment in pleasure, and we have worked-
only those who have gone before, and blazed the trail, may know how
we have worked-and we have endeavored to crystallize the pleasures
and joys of the past year, with the true spirit of Adelphi, into our Class-
Book. Wie have had in our minds fine thoughts and bright thoughts
which clamored to get into the f'Oracle," and which we fondly imagined
ourselves pouring forth on paper for the edification of our friends: but,
alas! when it came to the point, how intangible they were, and how
impossible to fuse them into written form.
lf in future years, Nought-Seven, a glance through these pages will
revive old memories, or cause you to dwell awhile upon old friends, or
call forth a smile for the past, we can put down our pens with a feeling
of well-earned reward. '

History of the Class of Nineteen:Six
A dear little maiden of almost four winters was worrying, oh,,so
hard! over a threatened punishment in the shape of a flunk, which special
form of reproof she 'had never, never met, but which seemed very
imminent if her various tutors were to be believed, so- that she could
no longer enjoy rest or peace of mind. Said this little maid: "I know it
is all nonsense, and I shan't believe a word of it, but it would be such a
relief just to hear some one say itis not true. Maybe if I-wear my
pretty green and white dress and tell her my troubles, she will be nice
to mme." So in the dead of night, while all her family slept, little Miss
Naughty-Six slipped out with a lo-ng, black gown and a square, black
cap covering her linery, and took her way to a fortune-teller's. The
sorceress was beginning her usual recital, when the derisive smile of her
subject put her upon her mettle.
"You think I cannot reveal to you your future. Wait. This bowl
which you see before you is three thousand years old, and in its heart
it holds the secrets of all those ages. Now, if I tell you truly the 'history
of your past and present life, will yo-u not then believe what I shall
"You have lJCC11 afflicted with different nick-names throughout
your career. Ifpon your first appearance an unfeeling world, and
especially a next-older sister, christened you 'Freshmanf This name
clung to you for so long that you were loath to part with it. for, as
Fresh, did you not cover yourself with glory and with go-re in many
battles, and clown your boisterous sister in the game of basket-ball?
And what social honors were yours! It was your very youthfulness
that added charm. Your worth was soon recognized, and Sophomore
paid homage to you at I-Iallowe'en, while junior introduced you to
'Co-eds' at a masquerade given in your honor. Even the Faculty was
appreciative, and for the only time in history provided two instructors
in English to read your precious dramas and poems. Yes, those were
happy days of careless youth, when spreads were a common occurrence,
and olives and cocoanut macaroons figured daily in the Latin Quarter.
"Soon a new nick-name was given to you, and with it came many
responsibilities. Chief of these was the care and training of a new baby
sister, who asserted her presence too noisily. She wished to eat cake
and other indigestible foods which you knew were not good for one of
her tender years, so you felt obliged to take them away from her by
force, no matter how painful the process. Your own artistic develop-
ment was amazingg but even by dressing her in green bows for chapel
you could awaken no sense of the aesthetic in her. Your methods of
correction were sometimes severe, as when you beat her so soundly
in the gym., but her nature was such that to this day she is somewhat
rude and untractable. Even as Sophomore you found time for play,
and your innate ability and growing attractiveness were well shown at
your Christmas reception and in the exchange of entertainments with
"But it was as 'Jolly junior' that your hidden powers burst forth
in splendor. Then did you nrst become acquainted with real work.
Then did you publish a beautiful book, and show your 'talents in a play.
Then did you plan and execute the greatest Prom. ever, prove your
business training in a wonderful ad. party, and exercise your voice in
an original melody called 'Tight-wad Seniorsf Then did the purchase
of rings and the daily perusal of Herald 'personals' reduce you to thc
necessity of absolute comniunistic life and the eating of meals in the
Mills Hotel. But most glorious of all, it was in that year that the
youths of Adelphi offered you a beautiful silver cup for the privilege
of watching you win a series of contests in the gymnasiumg and you
were gracious enough to comply. '
"And now, little girl, you are Senior. That name will seem shortest
of all. In a few months you will drop all nick-names and be known
even to your intimates as Miss Naughty-Sixg and in a few months after
that I foresee that you will make one Hnal change and become Mrs.
Naughty-Six. Yes, you need not deny it-you know it yourself. Else
why these strange courses in plumbing and ideal homes? Wlhy these
chafing-dish parties? NVhy this glitter of diamonds and this 'chesty'
appearance? But you have not time just now to bother about that.
You must work and work. You are very poor at present. though you
hold so many offices of trust, and you must toil from dawn till mid-
night. You are not allowed even the pleasures of labor unions and
strikes. Your lessons are the least consideration. Besides all your
executive duties, you must somehow End time for dramatics and basket-
ball and Valentine spreads and Mr. Wfynn and practice teaching and
theatre parties and Senior week and Lituus poems. And through it
all you must remember to behave as a shining example for a tribe oi
younger sisters. It is not an easy life you are leading, dear Senior,
but I can encourage you with a glimpse into the future."
Here let us leave them. This revelation is their own particular
secret, and let us only hope that it is as bright and happy as Miss

History of the Class of Nineteen:5even
XfVouldst know the future of thy wondrous class, yet darest to
doubt my power, oh, Maid of Naughty-Seven? Gaze then into the
crystal, gaze deep-there revealed is the past, soon the future shall be
unfolded before thine eyes.
See Naught-Seven, young and unworldly, welcomed to Adelphi by
boisterous Miss Sophj In token of her love, Naught-Six binds the
younger lassies' luxuriant tresses with bows of gorgeous green. But
though seeming innocent, she is canny and ere long she gayly flaunts
a banner, telling to the world that while the Sophomores peacefully
slumbered, Naught-Se9en's class others have been elected. She has
won her first victory. i
Soon the child graces a ghostly gathering. In vain does her
elder sister try to daunt herg bravely and unflinchingly she walks through
the darkness amid harrowing shrieks and yells. To forgive is divine.
Naught-Seven forgives, and not long after is hostess to her sister,
Naught-Six, at a brilliantly conducted dance.
f And now Naught-Seven is become a Sophomore. Cheerfully she
takes up the task of teaching the child Naught-Eight. How pretty and
proud the little one is as she marches into Chapel, wearing her how of
beautiful red, 'ijust tied by big sister." Halloweien Naught-Seven guides
her through the labyrinth of Adelphi halls and stairs. The little sister
is a docile pupil and follows meekly wherever led.
A more formal bow to society is made. The Sophomore Tea is
given. Ever graceful and tactful Naught-Seven is an ideal hostess.
That Tea shall go down on the annals of history as unequalled.
Two teams are drawn up in line for battle. Rash child, Naught-
Eight, wouldst win a game of basket-ball? Ah, no! Fate has long
since decided the outcome of the contest. Naught-Sevens team is in-
It is a bright, clear day. with smiling face and shining eyes, Naught-
Seven greets Naught-Five and ushers her into the waiting car. Merrily
singing they ride along up hill and down dale, through city street and
country road. Again your class is a complete success as hostess.
Commencement comes, Naught-Seven bids a fond farewell to her
sister, Naught-Five, and becomes an upper-classman. Hard, earnest
work is before her. She successfully wrestles with biological and botan-
ical terms, learns Scotch and Anglo-Saxon, Writes learned dissertations,
and reads volume upon volume of reference work. She is engaged in
publishing a great book called the "ORACLE," and looks forward with
keen anticipation to the Junior Prom. All her energy is bent toward
making these two successful. Fear not, and doubt, Naught-Seven can-
Maid of Naughty-Seven, the past you lcnowg for you the future
holds achievement, success, victory. If thou wouldst ,see more, gaze
on-but the crystal grows blurred, too long have we lingered, the light
is gone. the crystal is dark.

History of the Class of Nineteen:Eight
W'hen Miss 1908 first came to Adelphi, she was a very young and
giddy child. Her mother had not allowed her to bring her skipping
rope and hoop, so for the first few days she was rather at a loss for
playthings. Une day, however, she discovered an enchanted treasure
house in the basement, Hlled with strange toys, of which she soon
learned the uses. There were other children to play with, three of
them. Miss 1906 was a sweet-tempered child, who gladly lent her best
toys to the little stranger. Miss 1907, on the other hand, showed a
spiteful and quarrelsome disposition. There was another little girl,
1905, who, although disposed to side with 1907. as a rule held herself
rather aloof from the squabbles of the younger children.
Little 1908 held her in great reverence, being, if the truth were
told, a little bit in awe of her.
ln course of time 1908 learned that the lunch room and the gym.
were in the basement, the Professors were only men after all, and that
one took the elevator to reach the tower room. She also learned to
take the Latin dictionary from its shelf, when she knew all the time that
a Soph. was coming for it in two minutes.
Wfhen Miss IQOSYS first year was half over, some other little girls
came to join her play. She received them very kindly, but could not
help enjoying the fun poked at them when they, too, appeared for the
first time in long flowing robes of black.
At about this time Miss 1907 became very threatening, her insults
dailyvbecoming more and more unbearable. At last a day was set for
the children to fight out their differences. The walls of the gymnasium
iiamed with gaudy colors, and the room rang with the songs and cheers
of the rivals. Miss 1906 loyally backed little 1908, while 1905 descended
from her pedestal and yelled lustily for her sister class. 1908 had
another important ally, a great white rooster, wrapped in the blue and
gold battle-flag of 1908. Little 1908 fought long and bravely, but in the
end her jealous rival overcame her. She managed to roll up a
remarkable score against her older sister, who only defeated her by
two points. This battle was followed by a jubilant feast, at which all
hatchets were buried deep.
After this event, there was a swift falling action until June. Then
Miss 1908 gathered up her household gods, carried them carefully over
to the Sophomore corner, and set them up with great elution. She
made one disappointing discovery, however. The Sophomore tassel
effect, which she had expected to find so becoming, was really not half
so nice as the old Freshman way of wearing it. Still, she realized the
necessity of making some sacrifice to advancing dignity.
Miss 1908 came bacl: to college in the fall, no longer a small child,

She condescended to amuse herself at the expense of another little girl

But 1908 was now of age and was planning a coming out party.
This she gave on the day after Christmas, Miss 1906 immediately
recognized that she had attained an age worthy of social notice, and
invited her to a wedding soon to take place in the 1906 family. She
had one of the times of her life, and will always remember Mrs. Taller's
delicious wedding cake. H
About this time the choice of actors for the yearly play was made,
and 1908 had a goodly representation on the caste. Another athletic
combat was arranged, this time between 1908 and 1909. This time she
had for a mascot a duslcy little maiden, beautifully dressed in the blue
and gold. Miss IQO8 was victorious. She realizes now that it is the
iitting thing for the Sophoinores to win. Next year, when she is
entirely grown up and has little sisters of her own, she may think
Miss 1908 hates to bid farewell to her older sisters, but is hoping
that her own little sisters will in some sort compensate for that loss.

History of the Class of Nineteen:Nine
Gentle reader, let us tell you of the great things we have done,
Since we made our own acquaintance last September,
Let us tell you of our few defeats, our many victories won,
Attention now, we'll tell as we remember. Y
It is not an idle jest to say, "VVe came, we saw, we conquered,"
For we did all three with wonderful precision.
Wle came in larger numbers than the other classes here,
Wfhen we saw the "Sophs"--to fight was our decision.
Wfe held our Hrst class meeting 'ere they thought of such a thingg
To say they were surprised is very mild.
Next morning when We gave our yell, to hear the old halls ring,
One would certainly imagine we'd gone wild.
A month rolled on, with spreads and hazing hlling in the hours,
And then on Halloween with thoughtful care,
The tender Sophs, to ease their minds or show their vaunted
A party gave us, of a kind most rare.
Thanksgiving came, and Christmas, too-both likewise passed away,
But just before a new year came once more,
The College Hall did see one night a vision bright and gay-
Our annual dance, the "Freshman-Sophomoref'
Wfe have made some parts in "As You Like lt"--parts important,
Weve lived through "Frady's" jokes and "Daily Themes":
Wie have learned that all things happen through the "Irony ol Life,"
NYe've been taught to do our reference notes in reams.
At basket-ball our team has been an honor to the class:
Afar off we see visions of the cup.
lf only we eoulcl bluff in this, but oh! alaclil alas!
When on the Held we must give bluffing up.
They say we are not beautiful. but then what matters this?
We have of other qualities the best.
And Dr. Felter says that we will ne'er be aught but "Miss"
This awful fate obliterates the rest.
You've heard most all about us now, weve told you what we knoxx
Now close your eyes and ponder for a time,
In mental vision range all other classes in a row,
Can any one quite equal Naughty-Nine?

The Bodenrunde of Adelphi College was organized in September.
IQO4, for the purpose of improving conversational abilities in the Ger-
man language. The name "Bodenrunde" was instigated at the sug-
gestion of Dr. I. F. Coar. who deemed this appellation appropriate.
because at social meetings the members, forming a circle, sit on the
ln the spring of 1905 the club instituted a custom of presenting a
German play. The first attempt, 'fLeonorens Zopif' was most successful
from both literary and financial standpoints.
Although young, this organization has most favorable prospects.
and is becoming one oi Adelphi's most successful undertakings,

The Athletic Association Banquet
The great Freshman-Sophomore basket-ball game tools place on
Saturday afternoon, the Ioth of February, and was won by the Sopho-
mores with a score of 3 to 2. After the game, the company adjourned
to the Study Hall, which had donned its most festive array for the
occasion. Everybody enjoyed the spread, and the chafing-dishes did
noble service. The songs and yells were even better than usual, and
not the least enjoyable part of the programme was the toasts.

"The Game"-Dr. Fraclenburgh.
"The l7ossils"--Katherine Tobin.
"The College lX'len"-Grace Coniniiskey.

On Friday evening, February 23, 1906, the Adelphi College
Dramatic Association presented Shalcsperes "As You Like lt." After
much deliberation, the club had decided to aim at this ambitious mark.
and the outcome justihed its fondest hopes. From the beautiful natural
scenery of the Forest of Arden and the elaborate costumes, true in
every detail of time and setting, to the faithful interpretation of char-
acter by the actors, everything was effective and consistent and produced
the desired impression of an artistic whole.
The Association feels much encouraged by this, its hrst journey
into the realm of higher histrionic art, and hopes that the favorable result
is but a presage of like success in the future.

Genevieve is what one might call a hustlerfwlien she wants to be--while
her favorite occupation is making others work, and she is a wonder at it! Her
ability to run things is only surpassed by her fondness for doing so. A distinctive
personality and an aggressive jaw are Genevieve's greatest claims to attention,
and these, together with an original and, at times, extremely forcible method
of expression, make her an ideal editor. e 4 i

a literary genius with a hectic imagination and an overfondness for love stories
of the Laura Jean Libby variety. This is but natural. however, for she is a
daughter of Sunny Spain, and though she doesn't say much, she does a heap
of-thinking. as is shown by her new book, and she can analyze the most

Multum in parvo. This just describes Selma. who makes up for her lack of

reason, she attends Grand Opera and lectures on Nouveau Art, and has there-

May is noted for her ability as a long-distance talker, and for the depth
which her conversation has-not. She has a passionate fondness for teas and
dinners, and spends whole summers in a vain attempt to lose flesh. Asa polite

of entertaining her. She frequents the manicurist and the hairedresser, and is
an authority upon all that is fashionable.

"Can any man by thinking add a cubit to his stature?'l This is a question
which deeply concerns our small friend, Blanche. who, with Lottie and Gertrude
makes up Dr. Fradenburgh's trio of automatic talkers. She is an animated
commentary on all subjects sacred or profane, and it is a constant mystery to
us. how she thinks up the killing puns which she gets off in class. Sarcasm she
abhors, and she wouldn't knock for worlds. But these are special privileges,
which we concede to our valiant Basket-ball Captain.

'lThings are not always what they seein." This is certainly the case with this
countenance whose angelic expression should be taken only for what it is worth.
Any one acquainted with this maiden would never accuse her of celestial
aspirations. She is at her best after her daily beauty sleep on the couch, where
she succeeds in exhausting herself and hearers with original jokes imported from
the Orpheum, and which elicit from thein shrieks of silent laughter. From
careful analysis of her remarks, we find she is one of the original knockers.

a regular Lothario among the ladies. Those whom Bob cannot impress are

An Unexpected Fleeting
It was observation night in Adelphi, and I, a belated star-gazer,
hurried down the dark stairs to the main hall, where I was attracted
to the study room by a dim, red light. At the entrance to the room I
was handed a card by a man in knickerbockers, whom I recognized as
Shakespeare. In bewilderment I looked to see if he were not in his
accustomed cramped position, but no, his chair was empty. I looked
for the stag', so like Talida in the fairy-taleg for the sleeping maiden
opposite and for the female monopoly of the stag's attention on either
si l of him but in vain- all were Gone even the trustees from the office.
C e 5 1 .5 7
Hoping .to gain some information as to- the whole strange affair, I read
the card in my hand:
"The Association for Mutual Protection invites you to a reunion
and general discussion in the study hall at twelve P. M.
'WVILLIAM S1-IAK13sP13.xR1z, P1'vs1'clw11'.
I entered and attended one of the most interesting indignation
meetings imaginable. The opening address was made by the President,
who confessed that from long sitting he had grown indifferent, both as
to how his plays were interpreted and the Bacon controversy, but he
had been more or less attracted by the rubbering-he said it-of
Apollo, out into the hall, until at last he had sent the hall "boy" to ask
what he wanted. I-Ie had expressed dissatisfaction, so they had decided
on a public discussion of Adelphi. I listened attentively and wrote down
the pith of the requests and grievances:
Shakespeare wanted a pneumatic cushion, fewer draughts and room
The stag desired a drink, as he hadnt had one since he "had drunk
his fill." I-Ie said that that naturally hadn't lasted long, and the drips
from umbrellas on rainy days drove him crazy.
Apollo wanted more attentiong his beauty was being wasted.
Oliver XYendell Holmes objected to living in a garret at the top of
a book-case all his life.
The Bible wanted to be noticed more.
The desks were so cut up over their treatment that they were
nailed to the floor, and so couldn't attend the reunion personally, but they
sent their complaints.
The sociology books thought they should be the vice-president of
the Associationg but this was ruled out, as they were only quarreling
with other people that night.
In room eight, a lady wanted her collar changed, as it had been
compared by the girls to a layer cake or a pie minus a slice.
Henry Clay wanted the blots removed from his character in roo-m
65, while a banner in that place resented the iact that Dr, Fradenburg
constantly called attention to her dilapidated appearance, especially as
he advocated social equality so strenuously in the junior year. An-
other complaint in that room was from the clock. She had grown
nervous over Frady's bevvitching glances and had covered her face with
her hands. The hands were discharged, and now all the clocks in the
College were on strilee.
The elevator felt decidedly Mm down, and needed a vacation.
The couches all complained of being sat on, While it gave the
windows such a pane to listen to- the gossip in the Sophomore corner.
A dish in the Senior corner had chafed for a long time under the
heavy and varied loads it had to carry. A screen over there objected
to the multitude of sins it had to cover.
The general bulletin was considered too stuck up.
The bugle boy said he had nothing to do since the electric bells had
been introduced. He accused them of wire pulling.
The climax of the meeting was reached when Mary Lyon rose, her
frame shaking with indignation as she told of the sheep's eyes that
Countess Potocka continually cast at the wrestler who in turn stolidly
avoided her eyes and gazed at his kneeling affinity in the Senior corner.
Quiet could not be restored, so Shakespeare adjourned the meeting
by a tap oi the bell, and soon the study hall contained only its usual

Here lies the body which used to be I,
Before I was doomed by the pencil to die.
I once was a normal, industrious girl,
Till the habit of writing caught me in its whirl.
I wrote essays in English and German and Lat.,
And philosophy, thesis "Sapientibus sat."
I explained for biology, "VVhy We're alive,"
And did three themes a week forvcourse 75.
My misguided friends thought because I was Heasy,
I'd grind out my lines for them, till I grew wheezyg
So those who were absent demanded long letters,
And those in the College kept piling on letters.
They would make me report to the LITUUS weekly,
And Round Table papers I promised most meekly.
The historian's pen was intrusted to me:
"You think up something novel, We've only had three
For poems the ORACLE editors sighed,
And betwixt and between them, I just up and died.
And now as I enter the I-Ieavenly border,
I'ye decided to leave, if appointed Recorder.
The 0R.XCL1i poet, with wild eye, and frenzied mien, would fain oft
Cry with I-Iamlet, "XVords, words, words !" Not, however, with a sense
of their wearisome satiety as heg no, with a painful insistent realization
oi their scarcity when most needed.

Hear the clangor of the bells-
!fVhat a world of mental toil their noise foretells!
How they rasp and rankle through you
VVith their summons from delight,
To the elevator weary,
To the regions dread and dreary,
To the Prof who rules with might,
Keeping time, time, time,
In a dreadful Latin rhyme
To the tintinnabulation that so mercilessly swells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells-
From the banging and the whanging of the bells
Hear the clatter of the bells-
Vlfhat a world of happiness that sound foretells!
How they beckon, beckon, beckon,
To the realms of joy below!
Witla what eloquence persistent
Interrupt they lines resistant
That defy all anxious trial to make them sense,
With a dull metallic beat
All out ot tune.
What a welcome they repeat
To a tempting spread that beckons, to be over
All too soon.
O, from out the vacant halls
What cacophony most mercifully calls!
How it swells!
How it dwells
On the hour of Htradesl' and meetings,
Dance-cards, crams, and chatter fleeting,
In its accents quick repeating,
All the pleas-ure that impels,
To the tapping and the rapping
Of the bells, bells, bells,
Of the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells bells, bells-
I To the tinning and the dinning of the bells.
I had a little pony,
I-Iis name was 'KIIorace Odes",
I lent him to a classmate,
To cram her Latin modes.
She thumbed him, she slashed him,
She worked him very late,
But the pony broke the record,
And changed my classmate's fate.
I-Iigh diddle diddle, the girl and her iiddle,
The bow flew over the strings,
Vlfe all sat entranced as the music advanced:
To Carrie more honor it brings.

up there? Remember that you will be seen as well as those in front.
Now, let's begin. VVhere are the rest of the girls? QOminous silence.l
Well, they can't come to the concert, that's all.
First, I must teach you how to stand and sit correctly. Watch me.
You must watch me if you wish to do anything just right. Now, stand
please-not like horses. Sit down. Vlfatch me. Up! Down! Good!
Mr. Lowe, will you kindly play those first three bars on page three.
No, not there, just above-Oh, I guess I'll have to play the accompani-
ment myself, as usual. QFrequent bing, bang, chords, and Mr. Lowe is
allowed to resume his seatj
Now, ladies, there are touches that we must get, and you can only
do so by watching the leader-by watching me. When my hand goes
up-stop talking please, this isn't an afternoon tea! Listen to me,
sing this, I never sing the same way twice-I can't. I want tempo-

that I have known whole choruses to go to pieces at one rap from this

Chapel eAn Appreciation
Chapel is a fine place in which to practice self-control. You are
rather late, some one has taken your gown, you need an houris study
to avoid.a Hunk, and it is raining, so you feel pretty grouchy as you go
up. But you must not show this, you must look solemn and exalted.
This forced expression makes you laugh at yourself and you feel better.
The introduction is unmercifully long, but you wait patiently for
the inevitable rainy-day hymn. By the time it comes, you have dis-
covered several cheering spots in the world, girl next to you is drawing
picturesg girl in front is frantically dividing her attention between f'Bug
Notesi' and the eye of the Dean, girl in back is loudly singing the wrong
stanza. Now, you are in a mood to see the ridiculous in anything.
You watch the Faculty sing and derive a mild enjoyment. A sad-looking
minister is introduced, and you try to hope that he may prove a delusion
and be primed with jokes. But no, he recognizes his Hunusual oppor-
tunity," and comes prepared to read a long manuscript sermon. As he
announces the time-worn text the girl on the right snickers, and then
sits for five minutes with her hands over her face in a prayerful attitude,
but shaking suspiciously. You have settled back for a dull lecture, when
suddenly you become interested. Surely you have heard a voice like
that before! You fall into a half-dream, and the current of your
thoughts rises and falls with the beautifully intoned words. Wfhere was
it? Wlieii? Yes, now you remember. It was jacques in "As You
Like It" last year-rather overdone, though, this fellow. Again you
recall your position. VVhy are you always so irreverent? You are sure
the other girls are listening and profiting. You resolve to pay attention.
Immediately you hear a most dramatic appeal, accompanied by striking
gestures. He grows more impassioned, and you wonder what's the
matter with the man--he looks so apoplectic. You glance around to
see if any one else is noticing and looking worried. The girl on the
left gives way. You would not have expected it of her, but she laughs
until she is almost weeping, and you feel somewhat relieved. You
return to the reverend gentleman and really listen. Soon you begin to
grow choky yourself, but you don't want to be disgraced before the
school. Wfill he never stop? You cannot stand it much longer. He
does stop finally, in a last, glorious burst of eloquence, and you march
down from. Chapel without visibly losing your dignity. The hour has
been of lasting benefit to you-you have gained marvelous control over
your features and a cheerier outlook on life. Suppose your Latin prose
isn't finished? You wouldn't have missed the treat for worlds.

Once there was a man put to guard some lambs and not let
Stupidity get them. For this purpose he kept them in constant dread of
a monster called Test. A long time went by, and no Test had come-
the man was disappointed. "Things are too slow,' said he, 'Ili will
make them hum." So one day he called out as loud as he could: "Testi
Test V' The lambs heard him and grew pale. Their fright was a great
joke to him. So when theyhad prepared for the attack, he said, "There
will be none, T was only fooling." Many times after that the man
called, "Testi Test V' but only a few turned pale, the rest had seen the
twinkle in his blue eyes. "Ch lm he said, HI called for fun," laughing at
the few. At last he called, "'Test! Testlu with no twinkle, no smile,
but in vain, neither all, nor two, nor three heeded his call. No one
grew pale. i'He is only in funf' they said. They had 'the attack-some
died outright, some failed visibly.

Killing time in these dear halls of learning,
And increasing your powers to jaw.

A Medieval University
"Now, as I hethink myself, it would he a splendid plan to establish
a university in this dull town in the glorious year 1o96 .-Xnno Dominif'
said the gentle 'and learned Oshornius Carus, as he ceased meditating
upon the cosmical arrangement of the universe and the conception of
all imma' actionssas teleological, "and if I could draw together those
learned men whom I saw last year at the University of Bologna, I
would have no donht as to its success." Meditations-"I will try at
any rate, and to that end will endite them epistles this day."
Accordingly in due time, these several learned men aforementioned
presented themselves, armed with a list of their qualifications.
First to present himself was a young man in soldiers uniform. of
hearty, geniaI countenance. said he, "have just fought for my
country, and can give testimonials of my valor. I have also toured
around the whole world, seeing many strange sights. I have gazed
night after night upon the heavens, contemplating the wonders and
heauties thereof and am expert in those tricks called scientific experi-
ments in these days, which amuse the young by their wonderful results
and smells. In my day, I have also dabbled in theology, hut finding
my fund of jokes and humor too great for that profession, decided to
come to you. I think you will see that I am fit even to father the
young and tender youths who leave the parental lireside to come to this
feast of learningfi'
Carus Oshornius smiled in his fatherly way, and said, "My son, I
find it in my heart to love thee exceedingly, come and be one of us."
Next came one, who said. "I need no introduction to you, for I
am already known as the writer of the 'Letters of an Obscure Manf I
am a true I-Iellenist, interested in all the humanities, I should like to
sit in the classical chair. Wfith me, I have brought a fellow student-he
will come presently-whom I desire to share this honor with me. Ile-
sides being most learned in the language of the Romans, he possesses
a most marvelous conscience-questions of right and wrong he can
decide with mathematical accuracy."
The jolliest monk came next. "I have the keenest interest in the
human race, especially the female portion of it. I have a store of jokes
which I collected in my youth and which I now use to regale the young
ladies. VVhen I was young," solemnly, "I did teach Latin, but, most
worthy father, I did get over it, and now I wish to occupy the whole
settee of the historical faculty."
"Truly, our University must prosper with these brethren only, but,
lo! I see one approaching who bears the marks of the great Wfest about
him. VVelcome, my son! Wfhat hast thou to say for thyself?,' spoke
"I represent the learned faculty of law-that is, the law of the
mind, and I possess great diligence and enthusiasm for my work. The
calls of the lunch room, I calmly pass over, for I always have one more
point to make before we close."
"VVe will surely accept thee, for in this degenerate age, our youth
need such examples of industry."
just then, another came up. 'llgresent thyselffl saith the father.
"I," he answered humbly, "am a voice and a commanding presencefl
"Enough l" saith Osbornius Carus, and, turning to his four faculties,
continued: "What think ye of this worthy for our Rectorg he would
do us great honor, I think."
"We ever think as thou, dear father." '
And so our great University, which has achieved such fame in later
days, was founded.

Meetings of the Round Table, and heard great argument

And this was all the knowledge that I reaped,

Miss U.: l think the poem shows the power of love, don't you?
Ot course, he really doesn't say so, but that first line-
"XYhy is it thus, and whence should it be so
Wlliy, the answer is love-I think so, anyway.

it is anyway. So it's all right. whichever way you look at it.
DR. I dont quite See your point, but perhaps Miss N-t-s-n
can suggest something.
Miss N.: I don't agree with the others, but think that the poem
exemplifies the transcendental joy of Work. The last exultant cry-
"Foreyermore !"-typifies its power to last through eternity.
MISS D-L-0: I agree with Miss N-t-s-n, and I think this
lyric is very like one of BroWning's-"Another 'Way of Love," "Amor

mystical reality of the philosophical supernatural.

U-r-h was right. XNO1-k hasn't anything to do with love-at least, in
MISS S-Y-R: Wfhy it must be love, because, you know, you don't
talk about it when you are young, but when you are older, it's all right,
don't you know?

QA Story of the Russian Massacresj
Once more Philip lsraelson foundihimself on the deck of the same
ocean steamer in which he had come to America but a short twelve-
month before. Wfith eyes bright with the light of enthusiasm. he was
devouring 21. well-worn newspaper clipping containing the Czar's liberty
proclamation. lt had come at last. the glorious new epoch, in despair
of which he had left his beloved native land only' a year ago: the ideal
which had possessed his dream-life at the university, was become a
reality. He rejoiced that Russia was free, but he rejoiced as a Russian
student-Nihilist, not as a jew.
Enjoying privileges denied to the vast majority of his race in
Russia and forgetting in his own comparative well-being the peculiar
woes of his kinsmen, the patriotic studentlhad never identified himself
with the "judenschmerz." Ardent though his devotion to the liberty
ideal was, no part of it came from a sense of the significance which the
lifting of the general yoke might have for his oppressed fellow-jews in
particular. He felt himself pre-eminently a Russiang Russian in birth,
language, society, music, literature, he gave his entire allegiance to
everything Russian-except Russian autocracy. So great had been his
blind loyal optimism in matters Russian, that even the burning sense of
governmental tyranny had come to him with the shock of sudden
The change from the introspective habits of a lifetime to active
Nihilist discontent was, however, so violent that lsraelson felt iinpelled
to leave the newly-felt shadow of Russian tyranny for the sunshine of
Unlike most of his fellow-jews in his indifference toward the
jewish question, lsraelson was unlike them also in his failure to adapt
himself to America. VVhen the news of glorious promise came from
Russia, therefore, fsraelsoirs friends in the little East Side tea-room
which he frequented, were not surprised to hear him enthusiastically
declare his determination to return at once to the blessed land, and in
spite of both reasoning and ridicule, he took passage the very next day.
As impatient as a bridegroom going to meet his bride, Philip at
length alighted exultantly at the railroad station in his home city. As
he caught sight of familiar faces on the short walk home, he flashed a
smiling greeting to right and leftg but he was too absorbed in his own
joy to note the lack of response, nay, even the menace in their looks.
Not till he reached his own home, moreover, did the chill of his welcome
home begin to penetrate his comprehension.
The first one he met when he had crossed the threshold was one
of the servants, an old trusty who had been wont to carry the child Philip
"pig-a-back" long ago. The young man extended his hand in warm
"Home again, friend Michael l" he cried.
But old Michael kept his hands in his pockets, and growling, hobbled
out into the night. Phillip stared after him in wonder and dismay.
Vylhat could it mean? A vague suspicion came into his mind, which
haunted him even through the affectionate greetings' of, the family.
lNere it possible-he scarcely dared frame the thought-that the anti-
Semitic agitation which had provoked massacres the year before in
Kisheneff and Gomel, and here and there more recently, were to become
a personal matter to him, and not merely as hitherto, a calm intellectual
interest in unfortunate folks in far-away towns? Could the smiling faces
of this great liberal city possibly conceal the plans of assassins? XYhat
had poor old Michael to do with this? Foolish thought!
Yet he found that to the family the thought of imminent danger
was keen. He could not help casually speaking of old Michaels be-
"Gb, he is safe enough. His affection for us is too deep-rooted,"
said Philips sister.
"He spends nearly all his time in the church listening to that fiery
little priest inliaming the common people of the city to avenge Russias
wrongs upon the accursed Jews. But Michael is too old for mischief,"
the mother said. T
.lust then a horrible murmur smothered by the distance drove the
blood from all their faces. No use for self-deception now. They saw
the truth in each other's eyes, and immediately they began to seize
closets, tables, all the available heavy furniture to barricade the door
and windows. The chilling howl grew nearer. Single sounds began to
be heard in the confusion, the shrieks of agonized children being torn
limb from limb, the wails of the mothers, the groans of the fathers, the
harrowing screams of the daughters, mingled with the wild shouts, the
curses, and the coarse laughter of the "pogromchiks."f5i
Philip's blood began to boil, and he would have rushed recklessly
to the rescue, but his folks dragged him back, bidding him be prudent
and protect them, for doubtless the rufhans would not neglect them.
Even as they were talking thus, the pogromchiks attacked their dwelling,
bombarding the doors and windows with their previous booty. Flames
from the opposite dwelling were seen. Crash! A stone went through
a window facing the street. The ruffians began to fire into the room.
Philip, too, fortunately, had a pistol and kept covering the rufhans as
one by one they climbed up by a ladder to the window, and one by one
The family was beginning to breathe a little more freely, as a lull
came into the blood-curdling noise without, when with a horrible yell
of triumph the ringleaders rushed into the room, followed tardily by
shaking old Michael, whose features were transformed with unwonted
passion. The old man, incited by the ignorant priest's bloody appeal,
had betrayed them: the pogromchiks had entered by a secret passage
revealed to them by the faithful servant. ,
Philip recognized in one of the leaders one to whom he had been
kind, the son of the old traitor servant.
"Thou, Michaelevitchlv he exclaimed.
For answer, Michaelevitch stabbed him to the heart. Perhaps he
meant it in kindness: it was indeed a merciful death, for Philip was
happily spared the sight of his father being tortured and the hideous
fates of his mother and sister.
The irony of fate! For Philip Israelson had died for a cause which
had been consciously his but a few short hours.
A sky of blue just Heeced with white,
VVith south-bound wild birds passing o'er it,
A wave-washed beach of -gray,
A coolness with the approach of night,
A gold sun sinks in rainbow light-
An Indian summer day.
The song of the Adelphi Girl.
I'd rather be a girl, I think,
Than anything else I know. A
To be sure, I never was a boy,
So I cannot know its peculiar joy,
For I didn't have any choice,
fButif I'd been asked to give my voicel,
I'd have been just a girl as I am,
A Wouldn't you?
I'd rather be an American girl,
Than anything else I know.
To be sure, I wasn't asked it I'd be I
An Esquimo or a heathen Chineeg
But I really don't hold anyone to blame,
For if I had been, I'd have asked just the same
To be an American girl, ' A
I'd rather be a college girl,
Than anything else I know.
To be sure, there is plenty of grinding to dog
But we've spreads and parties and dances, too.
And though joys are of varying nature and kind
In a college girl's life you'll all of them find.
So I'm glad I'm a college girl,
And I'd rather be an Adelphi girl,
Than anything else I know.
Though other colleges may be hne,
Adelphi's the one I chose for mine,
And her I took of my own free will,
And in years to come, I'll love her still.
So I'm glad I belong to Adelphi,
THE AUTUMN LEAVES.
We dance and play in the Autumn wind .
And We play in the Autumn airg
VVe are happy and free
And full of glee
As we play in the sunlight fair.
VVe are warm and red as the Yule-log's flame,
And gold as the sunis bright gleamg
And We dart and dance
And our bright robes glance,
Or We drift as We idly dream.
VVe dream of the Spring with its tender green
And the Summer in beauty dressedg
And We'll soon float down Y
In our garb of brown
To sleep on the Warm earth's breast.
So We sway and swing in the Autumn wind,
And We frolic in frantic gleeg
And we eddy and swirl
In a dizzy whirl
In our last mad ecstacy.
Oh ! the slay is as blue as my spirits are gay.
And I've nothing to do through the long summer day:
Wfith a laugh in my heart, I may hie me away
A Through the meadows and into the woodland.
And what shall I find, singing low as I go?
Bright insects and iiowers o'er the broolis saucy How,
Tangled sunshine and shadow where moss and ferns grow,
And .Iacks-in-wee-pulpits a-nodding.
I'll steal me a ride in the farmers old cart,
Chase bees in the buckwheat, wild echoes I"ll start,
Homeward lag-past the weed-grown school-peace in my heart
Weaving' dreams in the gleams O' the sunset.
Mountain road and twenty mules, 'danger either side-
Lazy hammock, semi-tropic sun and ocean breeze-
Gold of fruit and mineral, charm of mission loreg
Ships for strange or savage land riding on the tide-
People of the western slopes, ye have cause for pride.
Wide and wealthy fields of grain, mighty rivers flow,
Space to breathe, with horizon far and far awayg
Land of red man's wars and hunts, white mans war and trade
People of the prairies, lesser lands would eramp you so!
Pulse of throbbing human life, all the world around,
Just an atom am I in thy mighty madd'ning stream,
Knowing toil and bitterness, tasting mirth and love,
Seeing thousands giving life that one life may be crowned,
Tell me what thy secret is, what thy hidden spell,
That, upon thy wheel, with heart and brain cords we are bound

History of the Senior Normal Class.
Doubtless more than one person has remarked that no record of the
glorious deeds of the Normal Class of 'o6 has as yet graced the pages
of history. This is due, not to any lack of noteworthy actions, but to
the fact that our attention and time have been taken up with more
weighty matters. Having now solved most of these vexing problems,
we wish to let others hear of our great achievements and learn some-
thing of the lives of celebrities. .
Two years ago, when we entered, we began to understand how
hard it is to be child-like without being childish. VVhen, with out-
stretched arms and daintily tripping feet, we went careering around the
gymnasium to the tune o-f 'Tm a Robin," it can hardly be said that we
sang it with a profound feeling of conviction. Most of us must confess
to having felt more like geese. However, those days are passed, and
now a few notes on the piano serve to change us instantly into fish,
pigeons, ponies, or even 77'1Z.CC. A
But there have been many more difficult tasks than this. The fine
distinctions existing between the Schizomycetes, Schizophyceae, Pheeo-
phyceae, etc., ad infinitum, caused us some slight annoyance, but we
have now completely mastered them. Vlfe realize that without a score
or two of these words at the end of our tongues, we should never be
able to convey "the right ideav to the little minds with which we are
Qur time has not been entirely taken up with these arduous duties.
On the Friday preceding Halloween, when we were mere juniors, our
"big sisters" invited us to a party. They had planned a most brilliant
programme, which was to afford HYCIIZ unbounded amusement. NVe,
however, saw their little game and turned the tables so completely that
the poor Seniors were obliged to bring on the refreshments in great
haste. This was followed in the winter by a dance, and a Salmagundi
party, and in the spring by a farewell luncheon and dance to the Seniors.
We rejoice to say that we brought the present junior class more
successfully through the ordeals of the Halloween party. All their
energies were directed to the performance of many extraordinary and
grotesque actions, xxhich they at first deemed impossible. In this way
we gave them "a concrete example" of the value of the right stimulus
being applied with sufficient force at the right time. They survived
these Herculean feats long enough to invite us to a cotillion at which
they showed up in their true colors. VVe really feel quite proud of the
dear little ones.
"lfVell, what do you think of Marthas engagement P" Thats all we
talk about now-a-days. Wle are delighted to think that she is to be so
happyg but we bemoan the ill-fortune of the schools of thiscountry in
losing so promising a Kindergartner.
You wish to hear more about us? Aye, that you surely will, for
though we have practiced in Brooklyn kindergartens for only a few
months, ,our fame is almost world-wide. Though our revered prophet
has not yet foretold the future of this remarkably talented class, we
know that our careers will be noted for their surpassing brilliancy. After
commencement, we intend to completely reorganize the kindergarten
system and establish it nrmly on a more scientific basis. Wfe are con-
vinced that, through our influence, the coming generation will attain
that all-sided, harmonious development of body and spirit which Froebel
so warmly advocates.

A toast to the Adelphi juniors,
Wfell, thatys rather hard to find!
I'cl have to say some awful things,
XYhich the girls would surely mind.
But. if to each in turn I say
Something, not nice, yet true,
Believe 'tis only done in play,
And you'll not mind, will you?
He1'e's to "Fan,'l our president dear,
Blue-eyed and fair is she,
And hungry, too, my word to you!

To Florence B., who is renowned
For arriving just in time,
And jumping into cap and gown
At the last, faint stroke of nine.
To Anna who laughts at everything.
Everything, did I say?
For who has heard her laughter ring
Vifhen questioned on history day.
Here's to little bright-eyed Eva,
The girl of sandwich fame.
New kind each day, would you believe?
E'en prune we've heard her name.
And last, not least, to little Fan,
A blue-eyed beauty she,
A-devotee of c'Cupid Dan,".
And a "Doc" is her specialty.
But still another we must not forget!

Is the best-natured of our set.

As It Will Be on the Styx
It was a bright, sunny day on the banks of the Styx. The little
bird-shades were singing blithely, and l'-1Sl1-Sll2lClCS jumped sportively in
the clear stream, Along the shore wandered two shades of Adelphi
girls of the famous Class of 1907, eagerly talking over old times.
"VX7ell, janef' giggled Grace, 'fyou certainly are the last person I
expected to see down here. Tell me about yourself, and all the others
you left on the terrestrial globe. A good many of us are down here,
but Genevieve is giving a trolley party to-day. You know she went
crazy on the subject-after she made such a hit as a diplomat. Speak-
ing of diplomacy, you know Gertie was the Tammany boss in the last
campaign. She was a good one. all right, and had a lot of practice in
college. But, lane, how was Ruth when you left ?"
'1Oh, Ruth! havent you heard about her? Tt's perfectly splendid.
She is managing an aslyum for 'Insane Treasurers and Professional
Beggarsf She always was an altruist. You know lda and Helen have
gone to South Africa as missionaries to the heathen. Ada is in China.
T thought some of going myself, but T hnally..decided to be a trained
"Oh, Jennie! you a trained nurse? You ought to be a mother
superior. You know Edna is down here, taking care of all the lost
souls. Most of us down here are married. Bessie and Lauretta, and
little Ethel and Mabel and Grace Mills. Of course, Tm a confirmed old
maid, tea-kettle, black-cat and all. Helen Roth is contributing-artist
to "journal of the VVeird Shadesfi of which Florentina is editor. Grace
Delano contributes poems, a la Browning and the pre-Raphaelite school.
"Look over there, and see Rachel grinding away for dear life.
That's her punishment for doing so much of it in college. Before she
came here she ran a mill, but it failed, so she up and came down here
to set up shopf' '
lane interrupted-"VVho is that up in that tree ?"
"VVhy, don't you know? It is Laura W7alsh, expounding on the
subject of evolution. She gave a course of lectures before the Truth
and Beauty Society on the 'Impoliteness of Trying to Ape Your
"Oh, Grace, here comes the trolley party back! Isn't it fine to
see all the girls. Hello! Lottie and Lillian together, as usual. I-Iow are
Ujiminy! girls, haven't you read our books-on '0pportunities in
Co-operation ?" said Lillian.
"Oh, hello, janelu said Gertrudeg "here's a copy of my 'Principles
of Bossologyf Read it: it will do you good. Vtfhy, you know,
'Oh, dry up, Gert," laughed Graceg "give somebody else a chance.
I-Iere's Blanche Lopez, fairly aching to tell you how to be cunning and
teach. Speaking of teaching, Matilda is Prof. of German in the Uni-
versity of I-Iotelberg, right over around the corner. Adelaide Virginia
McCann is giving dramatic lectures on 'Pronunciation as it is Said.,
Go on, jane, are any of, us married upstairs on earth, or teaching
"Yes, indeed, didnit you hear about Daisy VVilliamson and her
romantic wedding? She was late, of course, and the bridegroom, think-
ing she was going to cut, almost refused to give her another trial.
I left Marian running a miniature Erasmus. I-Iall on the site of the old
one. Elaine was teaching then-yes, it has always been co-educational.
By the way, did you know that our boys were tied for the loving cup
given to the champion fusser of America? They had a great discussion
as to who was to keep it, but decided to live together in a bacheloi-'s
apartment and so keep peace in the family."
"Here comes our librarian, Blanche. I-Iello there! where's your
"Chl I can't find Madolin anywhere." said Blanche in a most
distressed tone. "IfVhat can I do without her?"
"Cheer up, Blanche: here's Julie, wandering lonely as a cloud.
Hows our champion prize-fighter and gymnast? Killed anybody yet ?"
"No, but I'd like to."
"Well, of all things, two Sunday school teachers and the author of
'First Principles of Baby 'Ialkf Wfell, E. Madeline, L. Oliver and
Ethel, how goes the world? Getting along pretty well when you left it?
Is Theresa still looking after the Hnancial world? And Carrie, the
musical? I heard that Florence Powers had been appointed by the
President, General Critic of the WVorld's NV'ork.' Here she comes now,
perhaps she can tell us of the restf' '
"To be or not to be, that is the question," said Florence, abruptly.
"Oh! did somebody speak? Please excuse me. Yes, Selma and May
have happy little homes of their own, and are quite famous as house-
keepers of the old-fashioned type. Janet Alice Fish and Alice Fuller, the
other day, wandering around asking people to listen to their new theories
on the subject of 'Protectionf They needed it themselves, but had an
idea that force was negative rather than positive. Did somebody ask
about Mary jane? She is teaching the Young ideas how to shoot
triangles and squares properly. Come on girls, let's go back and see
the old Adelphi. Theres a junior Prom. to-night, and it might lend
to the attractions to see a lot of fossil shades."
"All right in cried all. "Here's the elevator, let's go right up now."
And as the crowded car departed, the shades of Erebus were
brightened by the radiant glory of Adelphi 1907.
