v-ff' FOREWORD sf The many and diversified classes of oracles in ancient Greece acted as intermediates between gods and mortals. Thus Pythia, priestess of the oracle at Delphi-most famous of old oraclesvgavc responses after being thrown into an ecstacy by a cold vapor issuing from a cleft in the mountain side 5 this Uecstacyl' partially explains the very ambiguous revelations given to the votary. However, all oracular responses were so worded that whatever the outcome of events, the oraeles preserved their prestige. A representation of the entrance to an ancient oracle as it may have appeared in former times with its marble walls, tripod, and smoking crevice, appears on the cover. Snakes, which in ancient pictures are many times seen en- twined about the temple tripods, and eagles perched on either side of the oracle were regarded with awe. The Sybil, or prophetess, at Cumae sat at the entrance of a cave, wrote messages on leaves and tossed them forth, while the wind gently wafted them about until they became fixed in crannies whence they could be dislodged only with difficulty. The seers decreed that the prophecy was annulled if the order of the leaves was disturbed. Just as the Cumaean oracle, pictured at the beginning of the literary sec- tion, tossed forth inscribed leaves to be read by those who would be wise, so seven printed leaves of this ORACLE bring their message to knowledge-seekers. As the oracles of old brought to seekers both fact and fancy, so this ORACLE of today hopes that it has published for the students during the last year a little of the sense and nonsense of school life.
