THE ORIOLE 35 called Juniors a ghost appeared. Chains were around his ankles and in one hand he held a thermometer and in the other (Oh! irony of Fate) a test tube. The Prince’s good sword passed completely through the apparition and his shield had no effect whatever. The Prince faltered and started back, but Wisdom showed him what seemed to be a shining light not very far ahead, so after many futile attempts he passed the ghost. Immediately the sun shone and a clear voice was heard to say, “Donnez-moi une phrase.” The Prince was told that is was a maiden called French, sent by Watts to cheer him after his encounter with the ghost, but the Prince glanced over his shoulder and saw Work following closely behind. He uttered a groan and went forward to meet the maiden. However, he did not fall in love with her as you might suppose, for both he and the old man, Wisdom, tripped and fell into a deep ravine. Now the name of this ravine was Caesar and it was dug by one named Smith. After many struggles Wisdom escaped and he and the good fairy Determination, who had followed the Prince, succeeded in rescuing him and they set out once more. Before very long they came upon what seemed many graves, with tombstones of beautiful symmetry and geometrical exactness. On some were written in perfect letters: “Originals,” “Cor- ollaries,” or “Proposition XXIX.” The Prince was horrified at this sight but the old man explained that these were the different victims of Geometry who had fallen by the hand of Bones. After much persuasion the Prince passed safely by this terrible scene and went on towards his destination. They had not journeyed very tar before a little sprite appeared called English. This sprite was deceiving for she was very ugly. The Prince drew his sword and was about to attack her, but the ol d man stayed his hand. How was he to know that the sprite was a “true blessing in disguise” sent by Finks? The Prince now looked up and saw, shining not very far away, his destina- tion, Seniorland, and his Golden Fleece, Education. He drew a deep breath, picked up his sword and shield, and set out once more toward his Desire. Theodosia Derrick, ’ 22 .

34 THE ORIOLE history of ilir 3Jiutior (Elass O XCE upon a time,” or, to be more exact, three years ago, a young Prince set out on a long journey. He had to pass through many lands before he reached his destination, but he carried with him the shield of Persever- ance and the sword of Ambition. The first country he reached was called Freshmen. When he came to the borders of the land he saw there a monster who was really very terrible, but the Prince’s eyes were lit by Anticipation and he hurried by. Now this monster’s name was Work and he howled dreadfully when the young Prince passed him. As he journeyed farther he sud- denly came upon a great bird, who flapped its wings and made a frightful noise. The Prince was very much frightened, but he knew that this bird’s name was Latin and that he had been placed there by Holiday, so he held his shield of Perseverance before him and flourished his sword Ambition, and the bird finally flew a little distance away so that the Prince passed on. But behind him the monster, Work, grinned hideously. After he had gone a little way a wind arose and strange witches and goblins appeared and danced around him so that he could not continue. These creatures were none other than History and Mathematics, allies of Thomas and Howard. Now the Prince was just entering the land of the Sophomores, and looking ahead he saw a good fairy approaching. Her name was Determina- tion. By the help of this fairy and his good sword Ambition, he passed the dragon called Examinations and entered the land of the Sophomores. The first person he met was an old man, who said his name was Wisdom and he offered to accompany the Prince on his journey, if he wished. The young Prince accepted gladly, as his shield Perseverance had been dented in his encounter with the bird Latin and he heard the monster Work roaring once more. They went on together until they came to a river. The old man said they would have to swim as there was no bridge and that the name of the river was the Sophomore Party. They started across but the farther they went the swifter and colder grew the water, and when they finally reached the other side the Prince was nearly exhausted and had to be pulled out by Wisdom. But the land of the Jun- iors was close at hand and they stumbled on. As they ap- proached, the sun was lost in a dark cloud and thunder was heard in the distance. Just as they were entering the country
