and depart without it. More have I seen, more could I tell, but it is needless. I nominate Mr. Mason. I have done." "Nominations are now open for 'Worst Knockcr in the Class.' " ' "Mr. President, I am going to nominate a man who has done more knocking than any seven men you can put up. He can knock a prof. for being too easy and teaching nothing in the same breath that he condemns long lessons. He can see no use in taking a cinch course, and he's a Latin Scig he condemns Techs and is sorry he isn't a technical. Such a one is a typical knockcr. He has all the inconsistent characteristics of a born knoeker, and gets them ofi in language qualified to startle the inhabitants of Hades. I nominate Andy Young." "Mr. President, the man I am going to nominate has already been nominated by himself. But for this illustrious honor, I can see no one more qualified than our distinguished President, Mr. Barker. lliarker goes through the mental maneuver of taking note of the speakcr.1 He has knocked and threatened, boldly, all of us, in our presence as well as behind our backsg and he is yet alive. How can we better show our appreciation of his ability as the prime knoeker than unanimously electing him?" "Mr. President, I move nominations be closed!" "Second the motion!" The question was put and remarks called for. Reiser gets up and protests: "See here, what's this game you're tryin' to pull ofi? This is too open-faced to try to close the nominations with good men waiting to be nominated. Moreover, Carhart has not yet been nominated. Where are your eyes and ears?" He sits down with threatening mien, and the motion was lost Cnot one vote in its favorj. Reiser then nominated Carhart, and peace was restored. Nominations for "Best Athlete" followed: "Mr. Chairman, I want to ........ " "You're out of order," yelled Barker indignantly, "I am not chairman of this place, I'm president, and I want it distinctly understood that you show proper respect to my position or I'1l rule all your nominations out and declare myself elected." CMeeklyj "Mr, President, I beg your pardon, and humbly beseech you that I may nominate a man. I was so anxious to nominate him, I really forgot myself. Please forgive me, I didn't mean anythingj I only wanted to nominate Jonathan Knight." Barker actually shows signs of distress, but masters himself and gruliiy calls for more nomina- tions: - "Mr. President, I want to nominate a man who deserves his office because they didn't send him to the Olympic games. He ought to be there. We might have won the Marathon then. We might show the American people that we at least have some common sense, and are able to pick an athlete when we see one. You have all seen him run the two-mile, what Hereulean shoulders! what massive thighs! and yet what graceful form. Forgive me, I am going to nom- inate Abraham Segal." "Mr. President, I have a nominee to put before you. He is a remarkable man, He has been nominated before, but is surely more adapted to this than any. Have you ever seen him in gym? Did you ever notice the envious eyes of Bruce upon his manly physique? Why I tell you I saw Thorpe turn around and look at him as he passed, and then slink away ashamed of himself. He is a modest man, and does not project himself upon the public eye. Naturally then, he can look with disdainful eye upon you all. My man is Sir Edmund Carhartf' 302
