" As soon Seek roses in December — ice in June, Hope constancy in wind, or corn in chafif; Believe a woman or an epitaph, Or anything else that ' s false, before You trust in critics. " Byron, HE Class of ' 91, in presenting its alma mater with the sixth volume of The Halcyon, has no intention of apologizing for any mistaken policy in the trust which it, in turn, has come to perform, nor does the staff, itself responsible to the class and the college, ask any indulgence for the errors which naturally abound in this, as in every under- taking of that imperfect creation — man. Our book is full of imperfections — errors of both mind and hand — we know this and you, readers, will doubtless soon find it out. As for criticism, we care not — we have done our best and are willing, aye, anxious, to meet the cold glance of review — our faults, pointed out, will be dangers from which our successors must keep clear, and what little work we have done we are gladly willing to sacrifice to the good of our college. That is what we have worked for. We believe wAxh Lord Beaconsfield, that " it is much easier to be critical than correct, " and with this assurance, we bid our readers to view us with a critic ' s eye and to express their approval or disappointment with a critic ' s tongue — we are willing to stand or fall with our work. The past year has been one of changes in the college, and, following the general spirit of progress, we have endeavored to make certain improvements in the Annual which will keep it, we 16 trust, well abreast of the times. The form of the book has been chang ' ed for reasons which will appear to those familiar with the generally crowded pages and narrow margins of some of our pre- decessors. The increased number of the college organizations, together with certain other features which ha e before been unattempted in Swarthmore annuals, has necessitated a contraction of the " literar} ' " department, a fact which, we believe, will be of no detriment to the book. In general, an effort has been made to make The Halcyon an organ of the college as a whole, by giving every department of the organization and e -ery phase of the student life its share of attention in one way or another. So much for appearances, now for true inwardness — of sentiment and purpose, both. In our criticisms and our attempts at fun, we have made an effort to show no partialit} ' or to be governed in any way by the traditional fear or favor. What seems ridiculous is well intended, and all who have reason to feel the touch of the shafts of sarcasm will take them as they are meant — for improve- ment ' s sake. And now in conclusion, as we lay down the cares of this work, we wish to urge its continuation as an institution of the college. You, ' 92, must see to it that the College Annual does not suffer at your hands, and in finishing your work do not fail to impress upon )-our successors the importance of the responsibility that is incum- bent upon them. Man} ' of the troubles through which we have been obliged to fight our way will be in ) ' our path, but many more ha ' e been cleared away for you by those who have gone, before. Keep your courage and do } ' our best. The Halcyox must survive, and, while we assure you that ) ' ou will find }-our work pleasant, we warn you to be provident in your preparations for it. Take the trust, ' 92, and honor it. 17 ah tt i? mosle -t l oo eonhaio lotepgjtiK ho 011 p miDsl — f v ih, af2d fpo e, an ffi mln Vclo , llDel illLi hPs hior2 , you v ill Find I? you glance ht e c pa e hf Fou l] ; Pop eVepyh ' r io ih elf explain c i Je lier- ' e open ho oup Vicv . WARTHMORE l OL-L-EGE History, Offidefg, Stodeftts. N the stormy years of public peril Avhen the great Civil War was at its height and educational movements throughout the country were involved in the general uncertainty of the times, the Friends, with their char- acteristic love for the better pursuits of life, made their greatest step in the direction of advanced learning, and Swarthmore College, strange to say, dates its inception to the days of the Rebellion. The movement to establish a college, ' although such a thing had been more or less agitated since the time of the " separation, " pre- vious to 1830, first made itself felt in the several Yearly Meetings about 1 86 1, but it was not until two years later that it took any well- defined shape. Meanwhile a number of prominent persons identified themselves with the project, foremost among them being Edward Parrish, who, by means of public speeches, correspondence and the publication of a book, " Education in the Society of Friends, " did perhaps, more in the way of effort than any one other person to awaken interest in the matter. In 1863 a stock company w as formed and shares were taken in large and small blocks by hundreds of Friends. In 1864 a charter was granted the corporation, and this may be taken as the legal date of the founding of the college. The work of collecting money and making preparations for the erection of the buildings, like other great undertakings, moved slowly, and it was not until May 10, 1866, that the corner-stone of the main hall was laid. This was a great occa- sion and a large number of interested persons were present. Samuel Willets, of New York, who afterwards became the college ' s greatest benefactor, was chosen to preside, and Edward Parrish, who had already been elected President of the college, led the cere- monies. From the speeches on this occasion a firm belief in the feasibility of the then almost untried experiment of co-education is easily recognized, as is also a firm determination to make the new institution a college of high standing and not a mere school, as was first suggested. The work on the necessary buildings was so far completed that the college was opened for students on November 8, 1869, with a registry of twenty students in the Freshman class and 1 50 in the Preparatory School. Two days later the formal opening took place. The growth of the institution from this time forward, with the various " details of its history, would make an interesting volume, and can be but briefly touched upon here. The growth of the student sentiment with the founding of the literary societies, ath- letic organizations and fraternities is spoken of elsewhere, and the interesting tales of the old days and times " before the fire " are best enjoyed when dropped from the store of recollection of those who were with the college during the formative stage of its exist- ence. The addition, one by one, of the several departments and the gradual broadening of the scope of the institution can only be treated as fully as they deserve when the long-promised history of the college appears. In 1 87 1 President Parrish resigned after two years service at the head of the faculty, and in the same year Edward H. Magill, A. M., who had previously borne the title of Principal, was elected and m- augurated with appropriate ceremonies. The year 1 872 was marked by the death of p:x-President Parrish, the founding of two of the literary societies and the erection of a gymnasium. The Alumni held their first re-union in 1876 and organized some time later. The first regular athletic sports were held on a cinder-road near the college on May 11, 1878, and although the records made and the appliances used would be amusing to the Swarthmore athlete of 1890, the latter may thank the energetic men of the early days for much that is now enjoyed in the way of athletic privileges. In 1879 the Meeting House was built through the generosity of a friend of the college, and Science Hall was well under way in 1 88 1, when the advances of the last few prosperous years were given a great set-back by the total destruction of the main building, which was burned September 25, 1881, with its valuable library, museum and collections of teaching appliances. This calamity, discouraging as it was, seemed to inspire new interest in Swarth- more, and in a day or two the liberal managers and patriotic alumni and alumnae had recovered from the shock and were already devising ways and means to restore the great loss. So successful were their efforts that work was begun on a new and improved building within a short time and over a quarter of a mil- lion dollars Avere raised for its needs. During the construction of the new building the classes were held in the Chestnut Grove and Gayley Houses, at Media, and many and varied are the stories told by those w ho went through that memorable session. The restored college building, with the new scientific building, was ready for occupancy in the Fall of 1882, and the opening took place on the anniversary of the fire. Although the number of students in the college was temporarily reduced by the general discouragement following this great reverse, the progress since that time has been very rapid and all effects of the misfortune have long since ceased to be felt. The last few years have been prosperous in a measure beyond the anticipation of the founders of the college, and the great additions to the endowment, the building and equip- ment of the observatory, and other substantial acquisitions which have come within the recollection of those now in college, are encouraging to the utmost. The past year, which has been signalized by the resignation of Dr. Magill, who had guided the affairs of the college through two decades of its successful career, the election of our popular Pro- fessor Appleton to the vacant presidency, and his subsequent de- cision to decline the honor, has been a most eventful one, and with the great step made in the abolition of the Preparatory School, will form a convenient starting place for the historians of future years.

' ' INCE you have been within these college walls, ' 90, everyone has noticed the different tone that pervades the institution. The very atmosphere seems dense with the echoes of that vast lore wh ich, at times, escapes from your learned lips. We all recognize the fact that as a class, you are capable of great mental application and are naturally of an intellectual turn of mind ; yet, with all this marvelous amount of knowledge, you are very unassum- ing. There is nothing monotonous about you. You can boast of having a great variety of elements, yet you all blend beautifully to form one harmonious whole. Physically as well as mentally, do the extremes meet in this truly most remarkable class. There are maidens stately in stature and maidens diminutive ; lassies fair and dark, corpulent and lean, robust and fairy- like, beautiful and otherwise. Some of your youths, too, are tall, and some are less lengthy, some are manly while others are decidedly youth- ful. You have among your number poets, artists, athletes and orators. Some have remarkable pedal extremities, and some, being of such a mathematical nature, are afflicted with undue enlargement of their crania. So much for your mental and physical characteristics. As regards your moral qualities, one need be within the same walls with you only a year to discover from observation alone that you are a most morally religious class as a whole. No one would ever think of accusing a ' 90 of using a pony or indulging in seemingly harmless bits of gossip, which neverthe- less, ruin the reputation of a rival, much less would any one think of ' 90 as indulging in any illegitimate electioneering, oh, no ! You are a thoroughly conscientious and upright class. To gaze upon you, ' 90, no one would suppose that you are such an extraordinary creation, and that you surpass the records of all your prede- cessors in intellectual attainments. It is, we fear, a lamentable fact, that, after ' 90 leaves her Abna Mater, the intellectual standard of the college will be obliged to flop, and this bark of co-education to haul in its sails, and we sincerely regret the time when Swarthmore will have no ' 90 at the helm to guide the " ship of learning " aright.

Resolutions expressing sincere sorrow were adopted by the Class of ' 90, the Delphic Literary Society, the Scientific Society and the Botany Club, and the follow- ing sentiment was passed by the staff of the " SWARTHMORE Phcenix " : Whereas, An all-wise Providence has seen fit to remove from our number our chief and co-worker, Edgar Allen Brown, therefore be it Resolved, That we, the Board of Editors of the Swarthmore Phcenix, recognize the loss of an efficient executive officer as well as a valued friend and college-mate, who, by his talents and genuine worth, had won the esteem not only of ourselves but of all associated with him, and further be it Resohied, That although we desire to express in our small way our share of the common sorrow, we rejoice in a belief, substantiated by our knowledge of his true character, that our late leader has entered a new career, in which, unhampered by any physical conditions, he now enjoys the blessings vouch- safed to all who live as he did— a thorough Christian life ; and that, although e find it hard to reconcile ourselves to our loss, we bow to the will of Him who doeth all things well.

" LTHOUGH the histories of Junior Classes in their own annuals are generally mere lists of virtues and victories, we wish to depart from the usual custom and tell that part of our history which preceding Juniors have not cared to publish of them- selves. We do not mean that we could not praise ourselves as much as other classes have done, but it is our wish to present our class in the truest light. Since ours was the largest class ever to enter Swarthmore, it is only natural that we should have among us some talented members. Conse- quently we have those who excel in athletics, oratory, music, poetry, cane- rushing, tub-racing, and a few who excel in mathematics. It would be impossible to enumerate here the many times that ' 91 has been gratified at the evidence of this talent, so let it suffice us to mention a very few in- stances. Our athletes have always been prominent, — first among their achievements was the establishment of the custom of holding Freshman Class Sports, and they next distinguished their class by becoming the possessors of the Phoenix Cup in their Sophomore year. But athletics in ' 91 have not been confined to the boys, for is it not one of our girls who holds the high jumping record among the gentler sex ? Our orators, too, as ' 92 well knows, can win three of five prizes in an inter-class contest. Our path has not, however, been all roses. Once we attempted to do a kindness, but, alas, we were doomed to disappointment. A custom then existing was known to be displeasing to the Faculty, and ever ready to lend a helping hand, we raised the " Pride of the Campus " from " this common clod to a higher air and a purer view. " The top of a pine proved too high for ' 90 ' s beloved tree and it was soon brought back to terra firma. Fully expecting to receive the highest praise from the Fac- ulty for our action, it can be imagined how much we were surprised and grieved to find, instead of thanks, that our action was not appreciated, and that thenceforth all of our petitions have been kindly but firmly refused. As is the fate of all notable bodies, we have been made the subject of much criticism, but perhaps of all the remarks none has proved more unfortunate than that made by ' 90 in their Halcyon. In their ignorance of the future they said of us, " All things that are Made for general uses are at war — Even we among ourselves. " If this ever was true it is not now. The tables have turned and the re- mark is now applicable to ' 90 themselves, while as everyone confesses we are most congenial, some even vi Veneris vincti. 34 Tfi c Tai ior lass.

TN view of the fact that The Halc on is the publication of the T Junior Class, it might have been expected that comment would be made in its pages upon the recent action of the Senior Class, with the circumstances of which the college is already familiar. The Class of ' 91, however, in pursuance of its general policy, has no desire to make itself a party in upper-class quarrels, and The Halcyon will make no effort to keep alive the feeling of petty hostility, which, if allowed to exist at all, should be confined to Sophomores and Freshmen. 6 ' 92 Officers of tl c £lass.

In the first place, your motto is inappropriate ; it would suit ' 90 much better than it does you, but since the mistake has been made the next step is to rectify it. We advise you to choose a motto that Avill not cast any reflections upon your appetites, as your present one seems to have done by a mistaken translation. We suggest the following : " Why, then, the world ' s mine oyster, which I with sword will open. " The next flaw is in your organ of vision ; there is a " bug on your eyelash " which causes all your deeds to assume undue proportions — to yourselves; ' 91 has 37 long striven to remove this bug, and after a fruitless effort she has sub- sided and smiles sweetly when she thinks of next year. Your worst fault, however, is your fondness for hatching schemes ; but, fortunately for the college, your schemes generally fall through during the process of incu- bation. One of your marvelous plans was to help ' 91 dispose of some surplus ice-cream at the Junior-Freshman reception. We will be charita- ble and make no further mention of this unfortunate occasion. We don ' t like to hurt your feelings, ' 92, and it is, as everyone knows, against our principles to knock a man when he is down — mainly because w e generally give him the blow that sends him down — but do you remem- ber having sent communications to the college classes with reference to a certain petition? We won ' t refer to the replies you received, as they were but a poor return for your kind forethought. We have but one more suggestion to make — if the college fails to recognize your superiority over the other classes, don t blow your own horn, but let ' 90 do it for you, for she would, undoubtedly, be glad to point out your virtues, if she could find them, and it would look more modest in you. We hope to see you next year, ' 92, but, " Whom the gods love die early, " and we fear you are too perfect to live long. If our fears for you are realized and you die with the Preps, we can only sing with Arthur Sullivan, " Long life to you till then. " TMc 3opl|on orc lass. M. ELLEN ATKINSON, Irregular, BENJAMIN F.

RESHMEN, you are very young and inexperienced, we know, so in a degree we excuse your many faults and blunders and hope that by following carefully our advice you may improve somewhat. As your name indicates, you are fresh ! Yes, woefully so, and you must remember that as you know so little of the great mysteries of col- lege life, thrusting yourselves upon older classmen and such behavior is decidedly unbecoming in you. Being your allies, we are willing to share the burden of moulding your young lives in such a way, that in time you may really become an honor 41 rmn( to your college home and a credit to your preceptors, however distant that day may seem. Therefore, we would call your attention to a few points : endeavor to overcome that greenness, which Freshmen invariably have, as soon as possible ; when you go out for your daily v alk leave your toys and nursery manners behind, and strive to command that dignity you see in those about you ; always re- spectfully remove your hat as you pass an upper classman, excepting a Sopho- more, of course ; be careful, how- ever, in doing this, you don ' t take cold and get the croup. Your class motto is in Greek, we see, but we are sorry to find many of you can neither pronounce n i) r translate it. But then you are so young ! Though you have never given proof of your greatness, we hope that it may yet show itself, a n d that you will make your- selves capa- ble of re- ceiving that dignity, power and influence which ' 91 now holds, but which she will hand to you when she leaves the college. Knowing that you will be thankful for and appreciate the interest we take in you, and feeling sure that we will soon see you putting our advice into prac- tice, we await hopefully the result of our la- bor. 42 MARTHA C.

I The Treasurer, J 46 TQie on crVille jQterary ocicty NCE upon a time, away back in the early years of the college, some Swarthmore girls, winging their thoughts into the future, decided that a literary society was a matter of neces- sity, in order that they and their successors might the better appreciate the college course, prepare themselves for the more difficult duties of life, and form a union which should bind them firmly together, both at college and in after-life. Under these circumstances the Somer- ville Literary Society was organized in 1871, and was named for one whom all may be proud to honor as the greatest woman in the scientific world. Mary Somerville may be honored, not only for this, but as a noble, true- hearted woman. Could a society thus organized, and thus dedicated, have chosen for its color one more expressive of its aim than white, the emblem of purity, or a better motto than " Simvitcr in Modo, Foi-titei ' in Re? ' ' During that time which may be called the past of the society, there are three events of particular interest. The first was the establishment of a library, which is now a valuable possession of the society, and furnishes a means of pleasure and instruction to its members and others. This survived the flames of 1881, and found shelter in Media until the new buildings were again ready to receive their studious occupants. The second event, which is one of the landmarks in Somerville history, and typifies its progress, was the division of the society into two chapters, and the necessary revision of the constitution. The third was the Greek play, " The Antigone, " the first presentation of the kind by college women in this country, given by members of the Somerville, at the anniversary in March, 1889. Little may be said concerning the present of the society, since that speaks for itself; and as for the future, may it improve the record of the past, may it be marked by the progress which attends its college home, and may the fourth great event in its history be the opening of Somer- ville Hall. 49 OFFICERS. .

At this time, however, many stu- dents were beginning to feel the need of some organization whereby they might improve themselves in public speaking and debate. Such a feeling would naturally grow where an institution was endeavoring to raise the standard of its courses and was gradually perfecting itself as a college. On the seventh of February, 1871, a meeting was held by a number of students, and measures immediately taken toward the founding of a liter- ary society, which should be accessible to men of the college classes. " Erodelphian " was chosen as the name of the society, and for several years that title was retained. Later, however, it was changed to Euno- mian, which name signifies " under good laws. " In the motto of the society, " [ m ' fas, Profectus, Fcrpeiuitas, " are contained the three words which have ever been the guiding stars of the society ' s success. Fellowship and good feeling have always characterized the work of the organization, factions or disturbing elements of what- ever sort, having been successfully discouraged. The present bright outlook of the society can justly be attributed to that care. In 1874, a library was founded by the society, and has since that time steadily increased in the number of its volumes. It now contains about one thousand books, embracing a diversity of subjects. The founding of a reading-room was accomplished in 1887. It was started and established on a firm basis through the exertions of the society ' s ex-members, who were present at the annual reunion. The library and reading-room have been prominent features of the organization since their adoption. From the spirit which has hitherto been manifest, there is all justification in believing that the Eunomian will ever fulfil the wishes of its founders, and remain, as long as Swarthmore College shall exist, a prominent feature of the institution. 55 OFFICERS.

HIS, the youngest of our literary societies, was founded in 1S73, and now holds a position midway, in regard to numbers, among the societies at Swarthmore. For several weeks of its early career the Delphic had to content itself with secret meetings, as the Faculty refused, at first, to recognize it, until they became convinced that there was a determined spirit that could not be quenched, and then, the much sought-for desire fulfilled, the Delphic Literary Society started forth officially on its mission of preparing for future contest the debater, with his far-seeing and clinching arguments ; the orator, who should sway vast multitudes by his rhetorical and elo- cutionary skill, and to add by its work many shining lights to the galaxy of literary stars of our country. This, then, is the mission of the Delphic, and, in the furtherance of this, many means have been used, a few of which we shall mention. One of the most important, excluding the regular literary work of the society, is the reading-room, with its library of over a thousand volumes. In this the members congregate at all times of the day, and while the rules of silence are not enforced as in most libraries, due respect is shown those that avail themselves of the opportunity to glance over the files of the current newspapers or magazines with which the room is supplied. The literary exercises of the Delphic consist of much the same work as her sister societies : debates, interspersed with reviews of authors, and readings from their works, are the principal features, while now and then the members leave their dignity behind them, and Seniors and Freshmen alike participate in and enjoy a spelling bee or a mock-trial. 61 OFFICERS.

RATERNITY life at Swarthmore is, as yet, in its infancy, although fraternity influence and spirit is already felt in the College. There are at present but two chapters represented, although rumors of a new fraternity are occasionally heard. Kappa Beta Sigma, a Senior secret society, which was in existence last year, is no longer represented. Pennsylvania Kappa Chapter of the Phi Kaj pa Psi Fraternity was founded January 26, 1889, with Alexander G. Cummins, Jr., Ellis M. Harvey and Frederic B. Pyle, ' 89; Morris L. Clothier, ' 90; Grant Dibert, A. Mitchell Palmer and William C. Sproul, ' 91 ; Charles B. Ketcham and Ralph Lewis, ' 92, as charter members. Eleven men have since been initiated, increasing the active and alumni membership to twenty. The chapter meets in rooms in Media. The Pi Chapter of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity was founded October 19, 1888, with Harry L. Boggs, ' 91, and John A. Thayer, ' 93, as charter members. It has since grown, and at present has eight active members, with desirable chapter rooms at Media. A,E.CHASMARSCO.MY PENNSYLVANIA KAPPA CHAPTER Jpl i J Tappa ]psi Itraterpity MDCCCXC.

In no other way can our position in the athletic world be accounted for except by the fact that it is af Swarthmore that our athletes are developed and not at a number of preparatory schools, as is the case with too many, institutions that have a high reputation in the athletic field. Situated as we are, there are peculiar advantages which have not been neglected to further the advancement of our standing and it is this, as well as the feeling of college loyalty that exists at Swarthmore, that brings out and develops anything and everything that there is in a man for the benefit of himself and his alma mater. The one great disadvantage we labor under is lack of numbers and this becomes most serious when different branches of athletics are undertaken. When a man works for his college on the track he should not be expected to do anything at foot-ball or base-ball ; yet at Swarthmore we find that the men won ' t go around. Some men that must compete on the track have to play foot-ball and the man that is training for the bicycle has to stop and practice base-ball. Nevertheless Swarthmore has managed to do fairly in all and when she devotes herself with especial zeal to any one branch her standing in that has immediately risen. At present there seems to be a brighter future for Swarthmore in Track Athletics and she is responding nobly to the call. Never before in the history of the college has there seemed to be such an opportunity and our men are eager to grasp it. Our chances for the Inter-Collegiate Cup are better than ever before. Twice we have been a close second in this con- test and our men are being watched by the larger colleges in the fear that we shall bear off some inter-colleg ate honors— as we certainly should. 91 But one of the great causes for this glory is now in great need of atten- tion. — Our track which in previous years has been our pride, sadly needs repairs ; but repairs cost money and here is where our friends and the alumni can help us. Just at present in order to make the most of the opportunities that there are around us, we need the track in good con- dition. The men are doing their part for the college ' s athletic reputation ; let every one else do theirs. ssociatioi . OFFICERS. President : WALTER ROBERTS, 90. Vice- Presidetit : RICHARD C.

The preps have gone, that pert young band, We ne ' er shall see them more : They used to be at every turn And at each class-room door. Their tongues were alvi ays on the go At morning, noon and night ; Their voices were always loudly heard. And often did they fight. The girls, a giddy set were they, And silly as could be ; " Crude sisters " they were called by some. To this we all agree. The boys, a bold and fearless tribe. Were on disorder bent. Unless a Prof, was after them, They never were content. Co-education was their aim. The parlors their delight, And, two by two, in this resort. We saw them every night. Next year we ' ll see another race, As " subs " will they be known; We trust that they will profit By the seeds which we have sown. 1 08 j ecer t artl ii ore Ji Ver tior s. Man Trap. — The prize of loo offered to Swarthmore students for the best invention in the form of a man trap has been awarded to Burdaniels, ' 91. Cross-Cut Saw. — It is the intention of the inventor that combined with the work there shall be a musical tone, but those who have talent in that direction have as yet failed to detect it. There are two samples always in working order, and generally work- ing in room No. 39, West Chester P. M-rt-nd-1- and E. P. Pass-em-over, Dis- trict Agents. Improved Door Latch. — Professor proof: Can be operated with slight exertion, and is very useful when quiet, undisturbed sleep is desired. There is a connection between the latch and water supply attached to the transom, which is calculated to dampen the advanced ideas of the disturbing element. The patentee desires that his name be. withheld from the public press. Hitching Post. — Careful investigation has proved that this will hold the most refrac- tory ponies. Every Swarthmore equestrian should make use of this ingenious inven- tion. E. B-byl-n R-dg-w-y, District Agent. Walking Dictionaiy. — Hutchinson ' s unabridged phonographic dictionary. This is a very useful machine to have about you, and, being small, there is no inconvenience in transportation. It is authority on all difficult points, will speak without urging, and well define words of ten syllables. Patented October 26th, 1870. All rights re- served. An Indicator. — An improvement on Edison ' s phonograph. The new machine tells all it knows in a very few minutes, and has an advantage over Edison ' s patent in that the working parts go on a system of perpetual motion. There are only two sam- ples, one of which will be placed on sale. Adding Machine. — Recently brought forward by a senior of Swarthmore College. It does away entirely with the commonly adopted method of adding on the fingers. Ed ' ard Darlington, Patentee. 109 Y ex ior offec. What is all this hurly burly, Going out of supper early By this bright and smiling maiden ? She with coffee pot is laden ; Down the hallway now she hurries, Excited she and full of flurries. Now into a door she ' s turning, Casts her eyes about discerning Many cups upon a table. Paste-board box with cracker label ; There she stands for some one waiting, In her mind the whole debating. And the people, how they gather ! She receives them — they do rather, For a youth by her is standing. Soon some little cups they ' re handing. What indeed can be the meaning ? Youth and maid at mantel leaning, Others still in corners talking ; Some, in fact, the hall are walking. ' What doth this mean ? " again I query But of my questions they are weary ; Some one shortly answers me, ' Senior coffee ! Don ' t you see ? " Was it all for social pleasure That the seniors took this measure ? Was there not a deeper reason ? Was there not some inward treason That called this crafty class together, In the eves of wintry weather ? This was prior to class election, Is there then no slight connection, In pulling wires and coffee drinking ? A sort of dim, confused linking ; You ' ve at last my thought discerned, Coffee into wire they turned. VEP,r (College ( t aracteristics. Geo. H. Battram : Professor of (j.

SAMMULIi SMITH GUYER, BACHELOR OF JANITRY, NIGHT-PRESIDENT OF THE SCHOOL OF CHEMISTRY. Dr. Guyer authorizes the ]uiblication of the following advice, as a result of his long ex- perience in the inside theory of chemistry : To Dr. Williams, Vice-President :— It is very dangerous for innocent young pro- essors to venture into the city too frequently. There are cases on record where youthful instructors have been arrested as runav ' ay husbands, and seriously embarrassed thereby. Ich -d ' ill nach Swarthmorc gehcn, wenn die Obrigkeit nichls dagrgen hat. Do not experiment with dangerous reagents in the way of explosive gases with which you are not familiar. A valuable gasometer was once destroyed in this way, and a class of preps were frightened out of a year ' s education. Do not show favoritism in your attention to the students. The young men feel i;rieved when you devote all your time to the young ladies. Do not show disrespect to the Night-President. He feels the importance of his position, and does not relish bombastic orders from subordinates. To THE Students : — Follow my example, and keep out of the Day-light. Do not ask the Professor the atomic composition of ortho-nitro-phenyl-propionic acid or similar reagents when he is busy. ' • We professors " will consider a breaking of this rule to be a sufficient cause for conditioning the perpetraior. 115 Always laugh when the Doc. tells you that you have used enough of a reagent to sup- ply the laboratory for ten years. He likes appreciation and remembers it. Never question the Night-President when he presents your breakage bill of $4.35 for the total destruction of a test-tube and a piece of wire gauze. Remember that distille j H2O and C. P. H2S0 cost money, and the services of Dr. Guyer himself are valuable. " Them students must realize that ' we ' can ' t run this department for nothin ' .

Tookir o lfor Vard. Oh ! ye mighty, mighty oak-trees, Which upon the campus stand. On each side the broad asphaltum, You at once the eye command. As I wander down beneath you. Sheltered from the rays of sun, I think of many wondrous stories, Grandpa told of ninety-one. Though the years have been so many, Since he to this college came — He and all his classmates buried — Still will always live their fame. How in many ways they prospered ; In athletics did excel, And in oratorio contest — All these things he used to tell. Many noble men and women, From this class did graduate, Some were orators and lawyers, Others still in Congress sate. Some of them did edit papers, And in literature took part ; Others too, excelled as chemists, And most were struck by Cupid ' s dart. Thus I wander down beneath you. Thinking of these many things ; When suddenly I am awakened. For music on the air now rings. This reminds me that a lesson In my music I must take, So I turn me back to college, And the shade of oaks forsake. 124 Soon my music lesson over, Now I turn to Somerville, To our hall so large and handsome, Where it stands, just down the hill. Oh, there are many more improvements. Such as the Engineering Hall, Eunomian, here, and Delphic stand, With classic ivy on the wall. titit A covered way to Science Hall, Is also a new whim ; And near the former ' s ancient site The Library stands, and " Gym. " This last imposing structure, is For use of girls alone ; It has apartments very fine, And floor inlaid with polished stone. 125 But now the bells do loudly ring, Into the supper hall I go — Dainty china, shining silver, Are upon the cloth of snow. Ice cold milk, all sweet and creamy In my glass the servant pours ; Flaky rolls and sweetest honey. All these things that one adores. When the supper is completed, In the parlor then we go. With song and dance and laughing glee, For you must know we dance, I trow. But now again the bells do ring, They do still to lessons call ; Here, at least, there are no changes, Still we seek the study hall. 126 MENU. SOUPS : Brine. Catsup. Shadow. FISH : Soles. Craws.
