THE ANVIL CHQRUS
,LI-IE BLUE AND GOLD, desiring to settle once and for all those questions which
have been disturbing the minds of thoughtful cadets for some years, has resolved
on the following expedient, which to the unthinlcing may seem dogmatic, but
which in its own estimation is byfar the best way to settle such momentous prob-
lems. TI-IE BLUE AND GOLD has ever been of the opinion that the human race
has been far more benehtted by an incomplete oracular demonstration, but with
an unswerving loyalty to the truth, than by the most complete and interesting
document upon a,more minute inspection, but of questionable authenticity. Hence
it has spared no ,pains in collecting the true answers to the following queries:
