Prof. Bengston has taken breakfast down town and he thinks he has detected traces of arsenic in the oat-meal. He is very excited, and rushes down to the laboratory to go thru a systematic “operation” of that oat-meal to sec how much arsenic and how many other things he can find. He is very enthusiastic about the matter and is contemplating giving this unknown to the class in qualitative analysis next semester. Prof. Rouse is puffing and pulling away at the washing machine and thinking of all the other men who are denied this pleasant privilege, he murmurs to himself, “What is home without a washing machine and me to pull it?” No wonder that the kindergarteners can wash so well when such an experienced man is at the head of that department. Let us end our visits with a look into the home of our President Crabtree. We find him lying fiat on his back in the middle of the floor with Eunice and Lu Verne romping over him. He is telling them what he saw of children in other lands and teaches little Lu Verne to skip on both feet, according to latest methods. After all. it seems that the members of our faculty are but students oldcr-grown. M. D. A One hundred six

Let us now pay a short visit to the club house. Here harmony reigns and life flows along like a dream, except when Miss Goshen exercises her oratorical ability on the unfortunate butcher who sent up a tough steak. The happy circle is sometimes broken by the absence of Miss Schlcc or Miss Lally. who stayed tc wield the birch upon some wayward or obstreperous youth who thinks that where ignorance is bliss, tis folly to be wise. If we should go to Prof. Scherer’s home about midnight we would find him searching wildly for the paregoric bottle, and at the same time making a desperate effort to quiet the pair of howling twins in his arms. The cries of the twins echo and re-echo in the stili night, but thru it all the athletic director, calm and unruffled, sings: “Gone arc the days when my heart was young and gay." If we should spend an evening with Prof. Beck we would find him in his arm chair reading to the children. Pomcna, who has been quiet for a long time, suddenly asks her father why he has a moustache and she has none. He tells her that she has none because she docs not need it. The cat purrs louder than ever and the professor spends the rest of the evening thinking of that “promising" Junior class entrusted to his charge, and hoping that none of them will register for Romeo and Juliet without first seeing Prof. Searson, whom we will visit next Wc will either find him in his den trying to “dig up" illustrations for his famous literary Work, “The Idler." or making extensive improvements on his from yards. He claims to be the only member of the faculty that is doing honest manual labor this spring. At Prof. Duncanson’s we find Harold crying quite lustily. His father has been playing with his new toy engine and has broken it trying to train a frog to be engineer. Mr. Duncanson concludes that frogs have no intellect anyway, but he did like to play with that engine. On the promise of a new engine Harold is quieted and peace is restored once more. . A club has been organized which has for its motto, “A cold bath every morning.” Prof. Delzell has lectured extensively on the beneficial effects of cold baths and the advisability of following his method. From the next room may be heard the following conversation: “Come, Mark." “No, I don’t want to. The HiO is too cold. I want it nice and warm like papa has it." Hundred five

The Charge of the Thesis Brigade. Second semester’s come, Commencement draws near, Down in the theory room The Seniors appear. “Forward the Thesis Brigade! Choose now your themes,” she said. Into the library Marched the brave Seniors. Books to the right of them, Books to the left of them. Books piled in front of them. Outlines they’ve written. Then at last, one by one, Back thru the files they come, Back thru the files, but not— Xot the same outlines. Red ink at top of page. Red ink at side of page, Red ink all o’er the page, Marked all their blunders. Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do or die. Back to the library Marched the poor Seniors. “Forward the Thesis Brigade!” Was there a one dismayed ? Xot though the Seniors knew Some would have grumbled, Yet none their zeal could quell. Boldly they wrote, and well, Xe’er on this earth did dwell More noble Seniors. When can their glory fade? C), the orations they made! All the school wondered. Honor the record they made, Honor the Thesis Brigade, Xoblc, brave Seniors. A Sophomore. One hundred seven
