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 Lafayette- H1sToR1AN. 148

Juniors 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 'T s 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. A 147
