Then came the spring term with its track and baseball, its commencementweek and
its social events, all of which found 1914 ever in the fore.
At last we are entering on the last lap of our brief stay at Lafayette. Bowed
down by the dignity of being termed "upper classmen," we look back upon the
first two years as mere periods necessary for our growth, as past and dead history.
Although our numbers have been sadly depleted by the ravages of time and the
faculty, we begin to appreciate, as never before, our position as a power in college
ahfairs and the power of our class as a unit. The triumphant conduct of junior
Week, with its Sock and Buskin Play, the Hop and the Browse, is a fine testimonial
of the spirit which we have always shown.
During our stay at college we have witnessed, with pleasure, the rapid strides
towards a larger and greater Lafayette. The increasing number of Freshmen, the
continued success in all branches of athletics, the new mechanical engineering build-
ing-all are witnesses of the prosperity of the "College on the Hill. "
Now with our face toward the setting sun we gaze into the future with the bright
prospect of being the same firm and united unit which shall carry on the traditions
of our college into all time. With true undergraduate awe we gazed with respect
upon the accomplishments of the classes which graduated during our first two years
at college, and we desire to thank the Class of 1913 for the care and guidance which
it has ever granted to us.
Let us then, Sons of 1914, endeavor, by our united spirit of loyalty and devotion,
to fight the brave fight and to work always for the larger, stronger and greater

O rescue virtuous actions from the oblivion to
which a want of records would consign them,
it often becomes necessary that a history be compiled
for the edification or amusement of future generations.
The class of 1914, having come into its junior year,
may now engage in pleasant retrospect of the deeds,
achieved in its brief history. All that has gone before
seems trivial now, but at a later date memory will
make every little incident fond and dear.
just now we realize how fleeting are the years, and
we look upon our entrance to college as though it were
but yesterday. We well remember that dark Sep-
tember night in IQIO when we were but timid, fright-
ened Freshmen, gathered at the Pumping Station.
A few hours later the lustiness of our cheers proved
that we were "corners" in spite of Sophomore paddles
and imprecations. Next morning came the first
chapel, and we Hled in 215 strong. After that the
long term of jolly and wholesome "horsing," the
scraps and interclass games with their victories and
defeats, the winning of the first Etteyafal Ball contest,
the "Barnum Sz Bailey" and Senior Upeerades, "
and the thousand and one events come back to delight
'X us as we dream of the by-gone days.
A1355 As Sophomores we came back with a vengeance.
.::'ff'5'5 No longer crushed and oppressed, we were now Hlords
fl of Creation. " According to ancient custom and
privilege, we exercised wisely the power granted usg we began to realize our strength
as a factor in college life. We entered anew into the activities round about us.
After the class scraps had come and gone, we entered into greater and more sub-
stantial deeds. Our Sophomore Cotillion, an innovation introduced by IQI 3, proved
even a greater success than its predecessor and established the Cotillion as an annual
function at Lafayette. The good spirit and jollity of our Sophomore banquet
cannot pass without mention as one of the pleasant memories of our early career.
