Adel Phi was the name
Of a beautiful japanese maid, whose fame
Had gone from end to end of the land
Where the wonderful Buddhist temples stand,
In Brookolyna and Tokyo
There wasn't a youth who didn't know
That of all fair maids in the lovely isle
Adel Phi was first in style,
First in knowledge, beauty and grace,
And beyond an equal in birth and race.
She had turned off suitors-a dozen score-
Yet she reveled still in Beau Brummels galore.
But only two of the best in the land
Had the ghost of a ohance for her dainty hand.
And the only question was which young man-
Poly Tec or Pra Tee?
It was hard for Adel Phi to choose
Wfhich to accept, and which to lose.
To-day she would fix upon Poly Tec.
Wfhile to-morrow Pra Tee would come,
And cause ther changeable brain to hum
VVith thinking hard, 'by night and by day
Wfhich of her lovers to send away,
Wfhich prince to accept and bid to stay.
But all of a sudden Prince Pra Tee
By a marvelous stroke of strategee
Knocked out for ever his adversaree.
For on a morning in Merrie May
Wfhen the apple blooms dropped in his way
He presented himself, did Prince Pra Tee
As a specimen of a new Iapanee
On his head was a glossy stove pipe hat,
And a six-inch collar under that.
A bob-tail coat, and a tango vest
VVith a great puff-scarf on his manly chest.
And on 'his legs you could see at a glance
His would-be trousers which really were "pance
Thus everything in this wondrous rig
W'as either too little or else too big,
And the waddling gait that that Iapanee struck,
VVould have doubtless charmed a mnscovy duck,

Q3.j It develops their moral characteristics through patience, meek-
ness, steadfastness and long suffering
C. A loud buzz in the classroom is beneficial to the College, for:-
Cl.j Fewer students will be graduated, with the result that the
standing of Adelphi would be raised.
Q25 A loud buzz will be financially beneficial to the College, for it
will aid the endowment fund, for, on account of the diminishing of
classes the College will save on the expense of issuing diplomas and on
the appropriations for duplicate library books and for Kindergarten
Because of the above excellent and sufficient reasons, and consider-
ing the fact that the Chinese are a hardy, healthy, intelligent race, noted
for their lack of neurasthenics, the reader must obviously be convinced
that the ancient Chinese method is the best and that the greatest benefit
to the student body of Adelphi is an incessant murmuring buzz during

Adel Phi, however, fell at his feet,
And said, "My deah, you are just too sweet !"
ln his arms he clasped her, and led her along
Amid the loud cheers of the pressing throng
To a castle built on a startling plan,
Wfthich he stated was quite American-
A brownstone front, five stories high-
The ugliest thing that money could buy.
And there, rigged out in a Paris creation,
Garranteed to stir up an unwonted sensation,
The noble Adel Phi by Prince Pra Tee led
Wfalked to the church and was honorably wed.
Up and down the halls we Hit,
Tess-ie, Jessie and I,
And slowly crunch on, bit by bit,
A lady ringer parched and dry.
The Seniors reach their hands for it,
The Sophomores groan, the Freshmen c
As up and down the halls we Hit,
Tessie, Jessie and I.
They watch us as we skip along,
Heedless of their hungry cry.
We start not at their farnished looks
Or flash of-Y threatening irony.
We have no thought of any wrong,
They scan us with suspicious eye,
As up and down the halls we skip,
Tessie, Jessie and T.
