Foreword f 'HE first l-ll-O-HI was published in l890 by the Junior class of that year. lts editors, R. A. Millikan and E. H. Abbott, were pioneers in the annual field. In their bow to the public they expressed the "hope of the editors and of all loyal sons and daughters of our beloved institution" that the Annual had come to stay. "lt has a noble career before ilf, ln this the first year of its history it attained considerable size, boasting one hundred and sixty-two pages of reading matter exclusive of advertisements. This was an auspi- cious beginning, and the interest which made it possible guaranteed the permanence and success of the book. What has been the "noble career" prophesied by the first editors? Between the years l89l and 1907 the annual was published in a variety of sizes and with a constantly increasing number of pages. The year '95 marked a turning point in its history.

The drawing can be done only with the assistance of half a dozen amateur artists. The photographs have become so numerous asto make necessary the election of a photograph editor, who devotes a large amount of time to the su- f pervision of this department alone. Illus- trations of all kinds number nearly eight hundred. The pages of reading matter and illustrations total 368, and the total cost of printing, engraving, and photo- graphing approximates 33,000.00 Surely the thought, labor, and time that represent the effort of the Junior class to record faithfully the life of the college I Hi-0-Hi Office place the HI-O-HI among the foremost of 6
