Introduction Convinced that the ideas which developed the peculiar and distinctive type of the REVEILTAE for the past two years have become exhausted, we have made bold to return to the former characteristic year-book with enameled paper and cloth covers. ln addition, we have introduced individual pictures of the mem- bers of the Faculty and the junior class. Beyond such we have attempted no innovations. ln our preparation we have been greatly aided by the hearty co-operation of Mr. I. VV. I-Ieadington of Bexley Hall, whose drawings appear as one of the features of the book. Kind and helpful suggestions have also been made by members of the faculty and several graduates. Wle have planned to give the Kenyon world a book representative of existing conditions and if our REvi51LL1z will but give some conception of the events and progress of the Year, we shall be content. The year has been of so much consequence to the college that we deem it wise to review at this time some of its chief events. The sad accident whereby Stuart Lathrop Pierson of the Freshman class met his death presented a most adaptable subject for those newspapers which care neither for truth nor for justice nor for decency. Immediately the most innocent circumstances were warped into hideous tales of dark deeds and brutal action. Reputations were overlooked. Calm and deliberate judgment was thrown aside and a dish was served up to the public of such a nature that no power of pen can designate it. Stories of a sensational character were sent the length and breadth of the country. In localities where the name of Kenyon was unknown, the people were told that it was a college where faculty and students combined to make the life of a large number of their companions a burden and a misery. Conditions only possible where depravity and brutality reigned supreme were represented as existing within the walls of our Alma Mater. To the friends of the college and to those who were cognizant of conditions, all these stories were the veriest cavil. To all those who stood so nobly for what was but right and just, the heartfelt appre- ciation of the undergraduates goes out in fullest measure. Vtfe refrain from remarking upon the conduct of those responsible from a legal standpoint. Nate hold high the majesty of the law and as we can not reconcile either ordinary reason or good sense with their pitiful miscarriage of justice we forbear further comment. 10

The Ofwl lfVhen lights are lit on Gambier hill, And the distant college song sounds near, And the campus paths are dark and still, And the tower chime rings clear, And the tower chime rings clear, From some deep gloom pierced by no star The lone owl calls and calls afar, I?V1z0 - who - who? YVhen lights are out on Gambier hill, And not an eye is left to trace The badge-men gathering to their Still Mysterious trysting-place,' Mysterious trysting-place, From some deep gloom pierced by no star The lone owl calls and calls afar, Who - who - who? 0 lonesome owl, Q darlcsome owl! Though each man's name and each man's part To read in weather fair and foul, Are written in our heart, Deep written in our heart, Vlfe dedicate this book to you, A book to tell you who is who, VVIZO - who - who. O. E. W.

The year has been very progressive along literary lines. This spring is to mark the entrance of Kenyon into the circle of inter-collegiate debating. At the present writing, it is too early to forecast the outcomeg but it is to be depended upon that the representatives of the college will carry into this field of collegiate activity the same spirit that is carried into any undertaking in the name of Kenyon. The work of the literary societies, Philomathesian and Nu Pi Kappa, has been conducted with a zeal that has made them still more important factors in our college life. Keen interest in all matters pertaining to them has been con- stantly displayed and during no period in recent years have they been in a more fiourishing condition. The C0llc'gian has had another year of marked success. All in all, the literary life of the college has seen immense progress during the year. The musical activities have been many and varied. A successful trip was made by the glee club and the home concert was one of the best for years. At different times throughout the year the various dramatic clubs presented excellent performances. The athletic progress of the year has been given special place in another portion of the REVIMLL15 and all that may be said in passing is that Kenyon has this year, as she has in the past, conducted her athletics on an honest, clean and gentlemanly basis. The storm of protest which is now sweeping over the country in regard to intercollegiate athletics, finds but little here at Kenyon upon which to fix its attention. The year has seen the further development of the Honor Systems. The honor system of examinations has been amplihed to meet conditions and is now in a state of entire efficiency. Not one breath of valid criticism has been heard in regard to the honor system controlling the use of intoxicants on college premises. T The present year has, indeed, been a stirring one and has brought much good. Responsibility has tempered the student body. The year will be forever marked as one of progress. Notwithstanding the calumnies of the malicious and the base fabrications of the ignorant, Kenyon College stands today upon the same fair height she has always occupied and her sons go onward and upward to higher and better things carrying her inliuence abroad and quitting themselves like men. 11
