Naturally nominations ceased immediately. They were as soon opened for the "Most Popular Man." A fight for the floor results in all being subdued by the loquacious, fluent, never-to-stop- talking Trembath-"Mr. President, I nominate a man who was in his Freshman year the most popular Freshman among tl1e Sophomores, who in his Sophomore year was the most popular man with the faculty, who in his junior year is the most popular man among the polers, who in his Senior year will be the most popular man with the ladies, who when he goes out in the world will be the most popular man in this glorious republic, who will attain the most popular offices, who, when he dies, will be the most popular in his grave. Further it behooves me not to speak, for my nominee, Mr. Totten, is surely ...,............ " Here Andy Young interrupts and speaks while Trembath surprises all by stopping to take a breath-"Mr. President, I want to nominate a man who roomed with me for some time. He has surely been seen around this campus some, and as for popularity, I like to know who has anything on him. Why he alone has been known to be most popular among many, he's the man that put popular in popular, in other words he put it all there. Who's more popular either in the cold, ungrateful regions of this world, or in the warm embrace of the other? Ahem. My nominee is Mitchell." Barker is about to close nominations when a shrill voice from the rear says: "Hold on there. I came here to nominate the manwho has caused others to get all the popularity they have. Show your gratitude for him. Look what he has done for the class, what money he has spent to get this-I mean to elevate the honor of the class. Think not, vain voters, that you are bestowing an honor on him by electing him. Nay, nay, you are but giving him his due, and can by merely doing your duty honor and enrich lsignilicantlyl yourselves and your class. I nominate Mr. Moore." Nominations are now opened for the "Most Popular Professorf' Techs and others scrap for the floor, Barker recognizes a classical-"Mr. President, we have here a professor who has not long been with us, but who has been making up his short time in length of his lessons, under him we have covered more ground than under any other prof. in college. He always has the best interests of his students at heart Cif you have him, you won't go down town and waste your timej. He will always invite you to sit down so courteously when you fiunk, that you will never flunk again. He will encourage you, when you hesitate, in such a beautiful and touching manner that you will be ashamed to hesitate next time. He will always give you such a generous mark for a per- fect recitation that you are inspired to do your utmost. He .,...... but I need say no more. You all know the justice of my remarks. I therefore nominate Dr. Rankof' No one ventures to nominate a man in opposition and so nominations are opened for the "Most Promising Man" in the class. "Mr. President, I nominate a man, who has made more promises this day than any man in this land. He not only makes promises, but fulfils them. I am now smoking a cigar as a material proof of this statement." Barker then informed the nominator that his conception of promising is the wrong one. "No, it isn't the wrong one, for I was going to say that the man who says he is going to do all this and actually does it, is the most promising man in the political sphere that has graced and illumined this fair land of ours since the time of the immortals. Why, men, just you rest assured that Mr. Kilo, whom I nominate, is the most remarkable genius, that promises to be, in the manipulation of the intricacy of the reigns of governments. I have done." 300
