Of all the brilliant statesmen that have served Louisiana in the Senate of the United States, the one whose work will probably have the most lasting effect upon the welfare of his constituents was he to whom this volume is dedicated. Tobias Gibson, father of Randall Gibson, was the owner of a large Louisiana estate, and among his other possessions was numbered a delightful summer home near Lexington, Kj ' . It was in this latter community, the home of Henry Clay, that his distinguished son was born and reared. Randall Gibson graduated from Yale in ' 53 and was valedictorian of that class. There is an incident of his career there which may Ije of no small interest to college men, and which may also serve as an illustration of his youthful temperament. It is related by one of his cla.ss-mates that while delivering the oration which was part of the Class Da} ' programme, although enjoying the closest attention of his audience, Gib.son was so overcome by the idea that his performance of the part was not equal to the occasion that he stopped short in the midst of his speech, bowed to his audience and class-mates, and descended from the platform. It is added by the same authority that to him alone, of all those present, had the semblance of such a thought occurred. After graduation he travelled in Europe, and upon his return studied law and received his diploma from the Law Department of the University of Lou- isiana. He served throughout the civil war in the army of the Confederate States, and in the official reports of his superior officers he is frequently men- tioned as having displayed exceptional bravery and judgment. In the United States Senate, after the war, he rendered valuable services to Louisiana both by his powerful defense of her rights and through his influence with the heads of the general government. He was the pioneer advocate of the Government ' s improvement of the Mississippi River and of the construction of the Eads jetties, foreseeing clearly the national advantage to be deri -ed from the former, as well as the engineering merits of the latter. These improvements, together with Tulane University, both of which are in a large measure the products of his labor, will forever remain monuments to his memory. As long as the river flows, as long as education remains the torch of the world, so long will his far-sightedness shine and his name be revered by generation after generation. When Paul Tulane, then a resident of New Jersey, conceived the idea of endowing an institution of learning in the State wherein he had laid the founda- tion of his fortune, his eye fell upon Gibson as a man not only prominent in public affairs, but as one so deeplj ' interested in the welfare of that State as to be eminently fitted for the trust which he had to bestow. To Gibson, then, although up to that time personalh- unknown to him, Tulane disclosed his project and entrusted the upbuilding of the University whose benign influence and deserved fame are even now spreading throughout the country. During the remainder of his life, to promote the prosperity of that institution was his con- stant aim ; its advancement and development into a true and perfect University which would cast the characters of its scholars in the loftiest moulds of man- hood, was the subject of his incessant solicitude. He was trusted by his State for his purity of motive, endeared to the South by his service in her army, honored by the Nation for his service in its Senate, respected by humanity for his work for education ; his life will forever remain a young man ' s example and incentive to become that of which this country is so much in need, a true American statesman. The coddled infant, which, with fear and trembling, the board of editors of la.st year sent out as the first Tulane Jambalaya, has, with the nourish- ment afforded by our great Universit} ' , grown into the lusty, self-reliant young hopeful which we this da}- unloose from our apron-strings. As the child ' s god-parents, to whose tender care both its mental and moral training have been entrusted, we do feel some pride, and we hope justifiable pride, in the result of our conscientious efforts in its behalf. But it were both unfair and ungrateful, should we fail to acknowledge how uauch our labors have been lightened and how much our difficulties have been smoothed by the ones to whom it owes the breath of life, and from whom it inherited not only its jovial and kindl)- disposition, but whatever it may possess of talent and of parts.

" We think, therefore we are; and being, we must make ourselves felt in this institution called Tulane. " Thus this Class of ' 97 deeply soliloquized after it had been assembled in the halls of the college four years ago. And then, having thought, it proceeded to act, and acted in such a manner, that within a few weeks, it had the Juniors bluffed, the Seniors scared, and theFaculty on a string. Everywhere was its power acknowledged, except among the Sopho- mores, a queer set that had a reputation of studying nothing else but Osteology, in which they were considered very learned, and were said to have discovered some important principles in its application to human needs. These fellows took it into their heads that the}- were the rightful rulers, and, one evening, removed bjr force a chrysanthemum from the lapel of one of our members, and posted a notice requesting the Class of ' 97 to discontinue the use of such ornaments at once. This was an excellent opportunity, and could not be missed ; so we deter- mined to show these scientists that the Class of ' 97 could not be insulted with impunity. In fine we determined to thrash them, and for that purpose took up positions in the hall, next morning. A crowd of Juniors and Seniors gathered to .see the fight, but before it began, they withdrew to safet) ' — some upon the stairs, and others into the library, where they placed themselves under the care of Miss Bell. It was a stubbornly fought battle, but we held our own. Seven times did they charge again.st our lines, and eleven times we drove them back, and finally they fled. Once more our right to rule was established, and .soon we grew friendly with our whilom enemy, and they invited us into their laboratory in the deserted medical building, where thej ' had initiated a few Juniors aiid Seniors into their mysteries. Some of us went with them, but one elderly Freshman, whom some of us call Papa, and others, Ike, gravely shook his head, saying, " I fear their craftv looks. " And those of us who went learned the wisdom of his words. We want it understood tliat ' 97 is not proud, and does not believe in blowing its own horn. But it maybe well to mention that news of this " Battle of Chrysan- themums " spread beyond the college walls, and with it the reputation of the class. Nay, it reached the capital of the United States, and created such an impression that President Cleveland appointed our leader to West Point in order that his talents might be put to the best use — in serving his country. During our Freshman year the class was represented in all movements of the college. One of our number captured the Declamation Medal, and one of this glorious class was elected Captain of the Football Team. These two examples show the " all aroundness " of the Ninety-.sevens. With this reputation behind us we moved into the new quarters of Tulane. And because we remained quiet for a while, it was thought that the old spirit of the class was dead. Now it happened that, about the middle of the term, some certain persons adopted our class colors. And whereas it was said that some other certain fellows went to that place and removed our colors by changing them to a more suitable hue ; and, whereas the Faculty decided to give some certain ones of us a holiday in consequence, a great fear came over the rest of the college that, in their absence, things would go to rack and ruin ; and a mass-meeting was held, and the Faculty was asked not to give these men a holiday. And this, after some preliminaries, they did, to the great satisfaction of all concerned. With such a reputation the class might well have rested on its laurels during its Junior and Senior years. But it did not. For in every walk of college life its members forged ahead, bringing honor to the light and dark blue. They held their rightful positions as leaders in the literary societies, in college jour- nalism, in college organizations, in societ} ' , in athletics, and in everything that pertained to the advancement of Tulane. Then, too, the class was varied and had many wonderful beings in it, from the " antiques, " who, as rumor said, are married, down to the ' ' kids, " who would not forget that they had left the nursery ; from the man who could remember the thirteenth, or an} ' other, word from the last in any recitation of the day, to the fellow who always said, " Have j ' ou studied your lesson? I have n ' t looked at mine. " Some classes, upon leaving college, plant a tree on the campus that they may be remembered; but ' 97 has left in Tulane monuments more lasting than wood. Among them maj-be mentioned, the jCa Zy College Spirit, the first college daily published in the South, and the Gulf States Inter-collegiate Oratorical Association. And not only did ' 97 organize the Association, but a ' 97 man came off victorious in its first contest, defeating crack orators from other colleges, winning honor for Tulane, renown for himself, and glor} ' for his class. Well may we sa} ' , as ever) ' class that graduates says : " Tulane has lost her finest class, what will the poor college do without us?

History Class of 1898 In ancient biblical times all great events had some prophet to announce their advent; but we modern mortals have no indication beforehand to point to the happenings of fate. Had such been so, our rivals for fame — namely, the other college classes — may have been better prepared to resist but never to overcome the incoming rush of the stalwart sons of ' 98. And why should this class be so heralded? Find its record in college annals, in the clubs and the organizations ; find its record in the victories won ; find its record in anj ' thing that goes to make a paragon of a class, and then all is explained. Poetry clothes subjects in expressive language, appealing to the inward sen- sibilities of man, and more nearly conveys the feelings of one to another. The writer is not of Homeric intellect, nor has he Milton ' s elegance; his feelings for the class which he calls his are not expressible bj ' him, yet 3 ' ou all know what the} ' are like ; .so pardon a novice in trj ' ing to lay before you the deeds of valor which have made the history of ' 98. Of its members, one, all of them, come within the plane of emulation, and their class spirit could not be better. Well do we remember the halcyon Freshman days, our victorious Sopho- more contests, and our Junior record. Our Freshman j ' ear was replete with activity. The two football games plaj ' ed on the .same day proved our courage, and if we must acknowledge defeat by ' 97 in the second -game, the glory was ours. That, however, is ancient history, and later events have completely settled the question of supremacy. When Sophomores, champions on the diamond was the reward of ' 98. Also, when earnestly we did try to arrange a series of games on the glorious gridiron, no other class in college felt dispo.sed to meet annihilation, and we were champions by default. Four of our men succeeded in playing with the " ' Varsity " eleven. But it remains for ' 98, in her Junior year, to carry off the palm and wear the laurel ; the class which with consummate ability so easily defeated ' 99 at football by the remarkable score of 71-0; the class which gave six men to the ' " Varsity " football team; the same class which won the interclass baseball championship without a defeat to mar its unprecedented record ; and the class which furnished five men to " ' Varsity " baseball nine. The reader may think that the writer is too eulogistic in his praises for his own class; but in the words of last year ' s historian, I say to him, " It is well ' 98 is not now in its Senior year, as its deeds — literary, athletic, and otherwise — would fill the present Jambalaya. " The President of the T. A. A. is a ' 98 man, and one of the best athletes in College; our track team has a goodly portion of ' 98 men; and in all the branches of athletics there is not wanting a representative of ' 98. Though foremost in the domain of physical strength, this does not militate against the high intellectual standing which ' 98 has attained for herself. In college publications, the life of that unity of the classes which looks to the advancement of the students ' interests, the Class of ' 98 has its full round measure of representation. In all college organizations, the ' 98 men have stamped an indelible imprint which points to advancement and perfection. The history of each man which follows is the history of ' 98. In there witness the confirmation of the facts which I have given. There will you see the strength and predominance of ' 98 in all college organizations. And now, as the time rapidly sweeps by, let the ether classes profit by our example and follow it when it leads forward. There is no secret to our great success ; laj aside petty jealousies for common interest, as we have done ; exer- cise a more fraternal spirit, then unity is engendered, and success will follow Class of 1898 College of Arts and Sciences Allison, Andrew.

When we were yet obUged to find our class-rooms by the aid of the direc- tory, the Sophomores, having taken spirits regularly in order to screw up their courage, hastened their doom by issuing a decree, written on water, which pro- hibited the carrying of canes by Freshmen. In attempting to carry out this order, the whole class assailed one lone Freshman, who let them have his cane with so great a goodwill that precipitate retreat was necessary, discretion in this case being the better part of valor. The class was standing in the hall. The " Sophs " appeared in battle array. Mars came around the corner in full pan- oply, including two six-shooters and a sword-cane. Valkyries, shrieks, books, moans and chalk filled the air. The gong .sounded ; the battlefield was exam- ined, and not a Soph was to be found of all that goodl} company. In football, as in all other things, we took a prominent part ; and, though unfortunate circumstances saved the " Sophs ' " bacon by making it impossible to play the annual game, we showed our mettle by furnishing to the " ' Varsitj " Foote and Rubira, men whom she could ill have spared. The football season over, those balmy days began — those glorious, ever-to-be-remembered days — when the Faculty Schercked us, and we, after defeating the " Commodore, ' ' shirked the Binomial Theorem, when we held, so easily, the pony race records, and were considered the most systematic riders of the time. I know not what other classes have to boast, but I do know that to Ninety- nine was left the glory of having a menagerie, consisting of seventeen rare wild animals, to sa)- nothing of the dog show, the Chinese viceroy, who ]ierforms on the slack wire, the freak who has bones of steel, and Afric ' s two sable sons, who attend to the beasts. ' Tis said that the management is about to conclude an agreement with Ninety-eight for the only living skeleton. This has been denied, however. The Freshmen, this year, were sweet little fellows, and obedienth ' adopted our suggestion that they make their class color green. This color, which was extremely appropriate, was retained until that momentous December day when thej met their fate at our hands, to the tune of fourteen-two, with variations from " Onward, Christian Soldiers " and " The Old Cat Died. " Their colors are now ivory, black and Prussian blue. This was the only match game that our football team played during this 5 ' ear, though there were some few practice games. It suffices, however, to say that from this team were chosen six of those heroes who so recently carried the ' ' Olive and Blue ' ' victorious through many a blood} ' field, and covered themselves with glorj ' and with mud. Of baseball I say nothing, feeling sure that the histor} ' of our feats upon the diamond, like our Foote upon the gridiron, will go down to posterit} ' with Sara- toga and the cherr) ' tree. In conclusion, let me state that I boast not in saying that not until the entrance of Ninety-nine was the " Interclass Baseball League " reorganized; then onl}- did the " Arbor Society " come into existence; the tennis clubs, the energetic College Spirit (our present great daily) and Jambalaya her immortal self became realities when, and only when, " Ninety-nine " ceased to be a longed- for future possibility, and took the leadership of the powers that be. From these cold, unvarnished facts any one whose mind is unbiased may see the beneficent influence that this class exerts and the vigor that it is imparting to the whole University. Amen.

History, Class of 1900 " IT IS WITH WORDS AS WITH SUNBEAMS; THE MORE THEY ARE CONDENSED THE HOTTER THEY BURN. " We possess many sunbeams, each sending effectivelj forth rays that consti- tute that immensely luminous body, the Class of Nineteen Hundred. Were it demanded of the historian to give even a fragmentary review of each member of the Freshman Class, that poor historian would shudder at so laborious an undertaking ; for he would be compelled, in his desire to perform his duty justly, to occupy unlimited space — each sunbeam casting a radiance of its own. When the early days of October found forty-one aspirants to the honors of Tulane crowded within the assembly hall, surely evidence of Bacon ' s truthful words, " Many would come to wisdom if they did not think themselves already there, " must have been detected upon some of our countenances. However, we were soon removed from that " tinseled throne of self-complacency, " and not many days had passed when we were awakened to the fact that wisdom had yet to be attained. Shortly after the opening of college an exciting and important step was taken, the election of class officers. Each party enthusiastically upheld its nom- inee, proclaiming with reverberative eloquence the qualifications of each. And with what results? Upon the manly shoulders of Mr. Edgar Woods fell the mantle of Presidency ; that of Vice Presidency upon Mr. Chas. Matthews, and 42 that of Secretary upon Mr. Paul Jahncke. Also, at this time football received its share of attention, and for officers it gained Mr. S. Russ as Captain and Mr. N. Harris as Manager. But the team was doomed to a temporary loss, that of its worthy Captain, who, on one of his first advents upon the field of battle, was deprived of the use of a limb, due to a dislocated joint. And the team wept ! No more did it hear his commanding and encouraging voice ; no more was it inflamed with the desire to conquer or to die ; for who was there to spur it on to victory with proclamations as thrilling, as burning as his ? Its distress, however, was soon alleviated. Captain Russ, having regained the u.se of his limb, returned to his post of duty amid bravoes of satisfaction. Baseball, for a long time supplanted by football, came into prominence, and with Mr. Trosclairas Captain, the team distinguished itself on several occasions. Cardinal Wolsey tells us : " Fling away ambition ; by that sin fell the angels. " And yet Mr. Harris was ambitious, but, not being an angel, he did not fall, for his friends, realizing his exceptional capabilities, lifted him roughly from the managership of a football team and landed him gently on the presidential chair. Mr. Harris ' ' ' uplifting ' ' marked the second election of class officers, when the Vice Presidency was bestowed upon Mr. Geo. Westfeldt, Mr. Paul Jahncke receiving the well-merited distinction of retaining his office as Secretary. Under the excellent guidance of these gentlemen the continued success of the class is already assured. It was during this administration that the class colors (red and black) and the class pin were decided upon. The pin is of a diamond shape, of chaste design, with " 1900 " boldl) ' stamped upon it. Ambitious and studious, and realizing the importance of higher education and the advantages offered us by our excellent instructors, there is no doubt but that in the Freshman year there has been laid the foundation of a class which will do credit to itself and honor to its Alma Mater. Howe ' er resplendent be this world of ours. With grand achievements of the living great, There still remains for him of lofty powers A place to rise above his mundane state. So rally. Freshmen, hasten the transition From what ye are and what ye hope to be ; Yea, speed it with the swift wings of Ambition, And gain the palm of your ideality. All your successes cast a bold reflection. Not only on you who the goal attain. But also, from your firm and close connection. Upon the hi.story of the Great Tulane.

' ' irwa r r. w». c L rrCL fa " ' " r-agy i iiilililWlli 97 , il A 6 H J- ) 98 History Class of 1897 Newcomb Collegfe " Backward, turn backward, O Time in Ihy flight, Make me a Freshman again just for tonight " — sighs some sentimental Senior. But I have not a doubt that the " tonight " in question is a Friday night. Yes, it may seem sad, but it is nevertheless true, that not one of the class of ' 97, if she had the power, would bring back those Freshman days. " My salad days, when I was green in judgment, " quotes some Shakespearian student. That first year was, so to speak, the iron age of our college career — an age when rules, lessons, teachers and, in fact, everj ' thing seemed hard, except the poor little Freshmen — they were very .soft indeed. Now, advanced in years, we think of those Freshman days as the babyhood days of our college life — days when we still kept our academic rattles, when the tears were quick to flow, and when our favorite pastime was kicking (oh !). Fortunatelj ' , however, we grew, and by the time our Sophomore year rolled around we had ac- quired all the bumptiousne.ss of the irrepressible small girl. The happy state of Freshman softness had not lasted; they, too, had become hardened, and as Sophomores they entered upon the brazen era of their college course. The age of brass — somehow the words are peculiarly descriptive of the Sophomore year of the class of ' 97. You remember how they astonished the world of mathematics by a remarkable trigonometric dis-solution. " Goody Trig. " " Requiescat in pace. " Yes, we confess it, we did have brass, but it was burnished brass and we shone. This year passed, we were Juniors, and had reached our silver age. " Speech is silver, " says the old maxim. This expresses our class tendencies exactly. The Junior year was the age of speech ; in other words, we did a great deal of talking. But the class was as good as its word every time. When it told the incoming Freshmen that it would be a sister to them, it showed that it meant what it said bj ' giving them a rsi-c ass spread. Again, when ' 97 found it necessary to tell the public that it was a remarkable class, it straightwaj ' proved it by the giving of a " Junior Jumble. " We had now passed our little girl stage, so to speak, and were beginning to put on airs. We increased our importance, a metaphorical lengthening of our dresses ; we did bright things, and then looked for some one to admire us. But this stage of development is also gone, and ' 97 has entered upon the full-fledged young ladyhood of the Senior year. The weight of college years is upon us. Dignified, staid, we look back with pride upon our past history from the limits of this golden age we are now enjoying. " Silence is golden, " and the loquacious Junior has been transformed, b} ' the touch of some wonderful Midas, into the dignified Senior, who discreetly holds her peace, and it is a pretty big piece at that. Yes, this is our age of gold. Our hours, our moments, have become golden, likewise our opportunities, and already the class is the possessor of one plain gold ring. The length of the college life is three whole years and one, but if by reason of it be five long years, yet are there tasks, " quizzes " and sorrow; they are soon all passed, and we graduate — One for the money. Two for the show, Three to get ready. Four for the go. Class of 1897 Newcomb College Fowler, Etiiki. Poi ' ic. Classical Course.

History, Class of J 898 ¥¥ T was during the last part of June, in the year 1894, that the Class of ' 98 left the Academ} the " cradle of classes, " and set out in a body to follow the various courses in Newcomb, which lead to distinction b}- degrees. Of the many classes which had pre- ceded this illustrious band, none ever had so bright an outlook. Indeed, the Ninety-eighters were the first who carried with them, J as trophies of past conquest, certificates given them by the academic chiefs when the class set out on its march to college. Three months later, on the first of October, it appeared at Newcomb, entered the Assembly Hall in a body, and there received the title of Freshmen. As soon as the company, now somewhat enlarged by the entrance of recruits, was reorganized under its new name, the members chose from among themselves Elise Cockerham as their chieftain. The learned owl they wore upon their breasts, and green and gold floated from their banner. The green emblematic of their freshness and youth, the gold of their high standard of value. It would be hopeless to endeavor to enumerate all the exploits of so great a class. We shall pass hastily over many invasions into Libraria, which drove the com- mander (of silence) to the depths of despair. The splendid records made in Gymnasia, and many minor achievements, to the great triumph of Class Night. On that evening, as everyone knows, was enacted on the stage of Gymnasia. " The Freshman ' s Dream. " Through this great act the Class of ' 98 won honor and fame at the very beginning of its career. So ended the first year ' s cam- paign, and the company went into .summer quarters. In the fall, as Sophs they renewed their activits-. ])ail ' thc-y coiiquerfd new foes and made new friends. Among the former, Trig O ' Nomitry, proved the most formidal)Ie, while of the latter, Shakespeare became the most valned. Perhaps the greatest triumph ot the Ninety-eighters was when, on their second class night, they united their best friend, Shakespeare, with their oldest, Mother Goose, to create a most novel per- 6 t t£o4jij formance. It is useless to go into detail, OO-t iA ' viAtVc for everyone has heard of the night when , --tttt ' 98 thus made " ends " meet. yUhiyX-aJy Jirr On the first of October, 1896, the ' -J ruyooa y Jvdu band, now under the leadership of Lillian WH T T ypy 5 2) .y LAAjlJiJ-. %. -TH E C AV . M,orJ. % Tu S. JJlTH Espy, stood on the border of Junior year, which is conceded by all to present the greatest obstacles to advancement in col- lege. With never-failing energy ' , however, this troop entered it and continued its victorious march, meeting with resistance in onl} ' one direction ; this was in Gym- nasia, where ' 97 claimed supremacy. The two clas,ses, on meeting, immediately joined in terrible combat, a strife which will go down to posterity as the " War of New- comb. " For some time the struggle went against the Ninety-eighters, their opponents being more practiced in the art, but soon the courage and strength of ' 98 began to bear fruit, and the enemy was driven back. The day of the final battle has not yet come, but ' 98 looks forward to the contest with confidence. The Junior year is not yet passed, but still the band moves onward, alwa5 ' s bright, alwa ' s merry, for just beyond they see the Senior plain, across which the wa} is not so rough and offers fewer obstacles. Of the future of the Class of ' 98, great things are prophesied, for where knowledge and strength go hand in hand, nothing is impossible. But, in the record of facts, the future can have no place, and with the present, this bit of classic histor} ' must end. Class of J 898 Newcomb Collegfe J Banister, Leah E. Modern Language Course.

UV. : ' History, Class of 1899 Newcomb College .Sjy.-:- XE short year ago we entered college eighteen strong. Since then we have increased in numbers and brilliancy, and have " grown in favor with gods (?) and inen ' - that is to say, Pro- fessors ( ). Of those who entered the field with us and did not remain to share the brunt of the Sophomore year, some have retired to peace and quiet, to recover from serious wounds received in the fray. Others, unwearied and unharmed b} ' their mighty exer- tions, flit merrily past us to enjo}- the sweets of other pleasures than those of ploughing through Livy, of unraveling the mazes of Trigonometry, and of solving the mysteries of Chemistry. We included within our number a Boutcher and a Baker, but unfortunately no candlestick maker. Unless, indeed, that term might be applied to the whole class, for do we not furnish shining lights to our Alma Mater? x nd j ' et some seem to think that our motto is, " Don ' t Kerr. " I am sure, however, that this is not so, for one of us at least. Because in our very rare (?) disputes, she is not at all indifferent, but adds a soothing benediction, which acts like oil on troubled waters. We never shirk our duties, and altogether, we are as steady as a strong, firm Post. All our college asks is Moore of such as we have proved to be. We have made a Good-showing in these past years, and intend to make a still better one in those to come, so that when we stand to bid our last farewell to the scenes which have witnes.sed our triumphs, we may Reed the record of the most glorious class that has ever graced fair Newcomb ' s ranks. Let us turn now to some of the deeds that have made ' 99 famous. First of all there was our Freshman Class night. It was entitled, " Echoes of the Season, " and was our first attempt at that kind of entertainment. It was an undoubted success, and the only complaint from the audience was, that the play was so good they would have liked more of it. It had been decided, however, to have this, our first effort, " short, but sweet, " and to wait until our Sophomore year to show more clearly and emphatically what the class can do in this direction. There are other wa -s, also, b - which we have distinguished ourselves, and among the foremost of these stands our faculty for getting into " scrapes. " But is it not natural to make mistakes? And is it not true that very often evil is the result of good and innocent intentions? This was the exact case not long ago in one of the book-rooms. It may have been too great enthusiasm over some stud}- (?) on the part of a fair student ! Perhaps it was merely a desire for a slight " rise " in the world! Mayhaps it was simply a lack of chairs! Whatever the cause may have been, a sad (?) accident happened, and she was blamed ! Well, " evils will right themselves, " and some day she with her fellow classmates will be looked upon as they deserve. For the present, however, we only wish long life to Newcomb and a prosperous career to Ninety-nine ! 106 Class of J 899 J- Newcomb Colkgfe. Denis, Willie. Modern Language Course. GODCHAUX, IvicoNiE.

History, Class of 1900 J- Newcomb CoIIegfe J- And it came to pass that, in the j ' ear of our Lord 1896, a tribe of the noble Shebites, wandering from the narrow passes of Mount Academus, arrived and pitched their tents in the wide and fertile plains of the valley- which is called Newcomb. And the high priest which ruled over that region sent messengers unto them, saying, " Welcome, O noble kinsmen ! Hnter ye into the land of our forefathers in peace or in war? " And the chief of the Shebites lifted up her voice and spake, saying, " Long live the high priest and the elders of Newcomb, and renowned be their name among all nations ! " It was a true report which we heard in our own land of their acts and of their wisdom ; for now our own eyes do see, and l)ehold ! one-half of their great- ness and uf their wisilom has not lieeii told. They exceed the fame which we heard. Therefore we have come tip that we may learn from the words of their mouths and increase our understanding. Then the high priest answered and said unto them, Ye shall be called no more vShebites but Freshmen ; and the name of your tribe shall be called 1900. And he appointed them a habitation and a dwelling. Howbeit, the Freshmen dwelt in the land of the Sophomores. Rut the Freshmen had no dealings with the Sophomores. And there arose a strife between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. And the sound of the contest was loud in the land. And the battle waxed strong, and they fought until evening. And the sound of wailing and gnashing of teeth was heard in the camp. And the wise men and elders of the tribes consulted together, saying, Who are these Newcombers who have trespassed and laid waste our lands? And the high priest answered and said, Lo ! I have seen a vision , and behold ! 1 900 seated on a throne among the clouds. And all the tribes of Newcomb shall bow down before them and do them homage, and they shall be exalted and honored. For I saj ' unto you that there is more hope and promise in them than in any which hath preceded them. And they departed, each to his own tent. And they grew and increased in wisdom and knowledge and waxed great. And they gained for themselves a name which is a name among the tribes of which to be proud. And much more shall be .heard of them hereafter. ' " " ' ( - " = ' Fi fi w ' ' M. .- ' ■ " i ' u.ii.J k " —m I -J ' ' j j EKy Class of 1900 Newcomb College Class Colors — Crimson and Blue.

The Glendy Burke: An Historical Sketch. jlEVERAL years before Paul Tulane founded the University that bears his name, the Glendy Burke Literar3 ' Society was organized by exactly thirteen students of the old University of Louisiana. These thirteen students constituted the charter members of the Society. They met Januar3 ' 21, 1880, and organized a society, as appears in the minutes of one of the first meetings, for the " advancement of the science of elocution. " From the very beginning these hard} pioneers labored energeticalh- for the welfare of the new organization. They met Saturdays from three to five o ' clock p. M., during the first year, after which the hour of meeting was changed to seven o ' clock p. m. Even in the earliest days of the Society, heated disputes were frequent among the members, and the3 sometimes assumed so personal a character that " goodfellowship failed to be restored even after adjournment. " It was of those times that one of their poets sung: " Ye long to know, I wot, how in those times Our Warriors battled — Hsten to my rhymes ! Never have stouter heroes come together, All game cocks — all, with nota sole white feather; They ' d fight unto the death, and even then Would sometimes wriggle up and fight again. " The weekly exercises during the first year consisted of onlj- one declamation and a debate. Orations were introduced during the second year, but they were voluntary and formed part of the programme onlj ' monthly. It was not until some years later that orations were assigned as a duty to certain members each week. It sometimes happened even in those early times the debate had to be dispensed with, owing to the absence of the appointees — an exigency ' not unheard of among generations of Glendj ' Burkians within our own memories. The law of heredity .seems not to have been utterly transgressed in that par- ticular respect, although this perverse trait has come down to us not without some of the better characteristics of our ancestral Glendj ' Burkians. Time was when meetings were held only every second week, and it was not ' until the Society had reached its fourth year that it celebrated its anniversary with appropriate exercises. It was on January 8, 1884, that these exercises were first held, the programme consisting of an oration by the President, a declamation, a reading, and a debate. Such was the beginning, briefly sketched, of the organization whose progress has extended with that of the University. Its rise and subsequent advancement are facts forming part of our College history. Such facts can not but come to us with more than ordinary meaning; for have we not, also, had a hand in the making of that history ? Not many anniversaries had been celebrated before invitations to the.se annual functions, for such they had come to be, were eagerly- sought for by 116 students and friends of the University. And so experienced had the Society become in givinj these contests that, to judge from its audiences, it cared not for rival attractions; not even for such as the French opera could afford to risk on the 8th of January. But there were hardships in tho.se earlj ' daj ' s no less than now, and former generations of Glendy Burkians encountered them with brave hearts. The result of their labors has stood well the test of time. They labored not in vain, for " Had they not lived, where had that good ship been. That ye, O bright-e_ved boys, art sailing in? " It was in the fall of i8g6 that the spirit of change came over the Society. The College had alread} ' passed a year in its beautiful, new domicile, and oppor- tunities of greater promise presented themselves in every department of our college life. Athletics sprang into a position of greater prominence than ever before; glee clubs were ushered into existence upon the wings of this new progress ; and new clubs and organizations of various kinds were constantly on the horizon. The change proved an epoch in our Universitj ' Calendar. Tulane had become a great University . And what was to be done but to adjust our- selves to these changed conditions? The idea of a " Congress " was suggested, and within a few months the plan was tried, and finallj ' adopted. The first year under the new plan has been successful. The literary activity of the students has been greatly promoted, and much of this activity ' has centered about the Glendy Burke. The histor} ' of the last two j ' ears can not but add to the lustre of the Societv ' s annals. L. ii .;i OBLEeHTE 119 Jambalaya Annual R. S. ViCKERS, Editor-in-Chief. F. C.

Journalism at Tulane T can truthfulh ' be said that journalism at Tulane has been of gradual growth. From a modest and unassuming bulletin, started some six years ago, Tulane has moved forward, step by step, until today she can boast of having the first daily college paper in the South. The early history of this important factor in the University ' s life is shrouded in mysterj and is contradictor} in nature. The historians of this period disagree on many important points, and all efforts to settle definiteljr some vital questions have proved futile. Records have been investigated and authorities consulted, but still the vexed question as to who was the pioneer in this broad field has not been decided. To the honor of starting journalism at Tulane there are two claimants, namely, T ie Gazette and The Tulane Rat. The Tulane Rat gives as the date of its birth the fourteenth day of November, 1890. The birth certificate of The Gazette has been lost and the exact date of its first appearance is unknown. Some claim that The Gazette appeared before The Tulane Rat, while others, with equal earnestness, claim priority for The Tulane Rat. So convincing are the arguments brought forth b} ' the adherents of the respective papers, at least convincing to those who advance them, that this question will have to go down in history as unsettled. It was in the early part of November, 1890, that there appeared one day on the bulletin board in the rotunda of the old University building a sheet entitled The Gazette. It was anonymous, and was written on a leaf torn from an old exercise book. It was filled with wholesome advice to the frisky Freshmen. Genius will out, and it was not long before the authorship of this sheet was fixed by Perkins, ' 93, and Vincent, ' 93, upon Blakemore, also of the Class of ' 93. These, together with the late Carson Dixon, thought that this modest venture could be made a power in the University, and decided to keep the thing going, and on its next issue, the following Monday, The Gazette appeared under the title, Tulane Topics, a neatly type-written bulletin, with the above named students as editors. Simultaneous with this, or previous — authorities differ — The Tulane Rat made its initial bow to the student-body. It resembled greatly the Topics, and, like its contemporarj ' , wa s also anonymous. Soon these journalistic fiends were found out. Edward Dinkelspiel, ' 91, was editor-in-chief, and was ably assisted by his associates, Messrs. Backus, Goldberg, and Tebault. Shortly afterwards the board was increased by the addition of Messrs. Newman, Forsyth, and P. A. Thibaut. In ' 91 H. W. Newman became editor-in-chief, vice Mr. Dinkelspiel, resigned, and Mr. Vergez joined the board. The two papers, tacked every week on the bulletin board, exercised about the same influence. Each edition was eagerly looked forward to by the students, and at times the fiercest sort of rivalry existed between the two. Their main object they avowed to be " the fostering of esprit die corps ' ' to wake the fellows up, and create a lively interest in athletics. Gradually The Rat began to expand, and from a one-sheet poster grew into a bulletin of from five to six pages, artistically illustrated. At this juncture the Topics, after an existence of from two to three months, for reasons unknown, gave up the fight, and The Rat reigned .supreme. From that time on The Rat wielded a great influence over Tulane affairs. To the enterprise of its editors, the students were thankful for many an unexpected holiday, and to it also is due the permanency of the Tulane Athletic As.sociation. It was alwaj ' s ready to promote everything and anything for the good of Tulane, and, all in all, its influence was a beneficial one. In December, 1891, The Titlajie Collegian, a bi-monthly magazine, appeared, with Charles Rosen as editor-in-chief, and H. W. Newman as business manager. From the foundation laid by its predecessors, The Rat and the Topics, The Col- legian may be said to have derived its existence. For a short while after the appearance of The Collegian, The Rat continued, but the boards of the two papers soon merged into one, and the lively Rat was forgotten. The Collegia?t for three long years served as a literar} ' magazine and news gatherer of the University. The former mission it performed admirabl}-, but for the latter it was wholly incompetent. The students wanted more news, and wanted it oftener. So, then, it was with sincere .delight that the students greeted, on the i6th of November, 1894, ' ■ College Spirit, a four-page weekly. In the session 1895-96 steps were taken to publish an annual, and in June, 1896, the first Jambalaya was hesitatingly presented to the public. At the beginning of the present year, The Collegian, through the energies of its Senior editors, was changed from a bi-monthly to a monthly magazine, and is now better able to represent Tulane ' s literary talent. For two years The College Spirit appeared regularly everj ' week, having fear of neither foe nor rival. On the 3d of November, 1896, the editors of this paper, made proud by their past success, were suddenly aroused from their bed of ease by the ushering in of a rival in the field, bearing as its emblem the University colors, Olive and Blue. Then began the struggle for supremac} ' , and a ro3 ' al and friendly battle it was. One week it was The Spirit that had made the scoop, the next the Olive and Bine had gone its rival one better. And so the contest waxed on, until, in Januar} 1897, it dawned upon the editors of the two papers that the force spent in trying to outdo each other could be put to better service. The two papers combined, and, as a result, Tulane has a daih- paper, The Daily Col- lege Spirit Tulane Topics ¥¥ Yjr is well to pause occasionally and look back through the dim vista of years at those humble pioneers to whose necessarily crude under- takings we owe the perfected monuments of modern achievement. Stand with me under the oak and recall the acorn. Lift your e ' es from the elaborately illustrated pages of the Jambalaya ' ' A and see that fluttering sheet, scarcelj ' held on the bulletin- j . board of old Tulane bj ' a single tack ; it bears the head- lp§:. ing, Tulane Topics, and below, in bold handwriting, is a ' ' ' ' ' sketch} ' , humorous narrative, with Tulane heroes. Behold the germ of Tulane journalism. The idea of a weekly type-written journal, to be displaj ' ed upon the bulletin-board, as a means of inculcating in the Tulane mind the necessitj of some vent for budding genius and a chronicle of current histor} ' , took firm hold of the minds of Dixon, Vincent, Blakemore and Perkins, of the Class of ' 93. Two typewriters were secured, and the seed put forth its first tender shoots. Letter by letter, with unpracticed but patriotic finger, the weeklj editions were prepared. Each Monday there gathered around the vivacious leaves noisy Freshman and grave Sophomore, energetic Junior and languid Senior, and even, occasionally, a stray Professor. A pleasing variety of mental diet was offered, from spicy answers to correspondents to insipid rhj ' me, though the general tone of the paper was vigorous, wide-awake and gaj ' . See them now, as each weekly battalion, obedient to memory ' s orders, passes again before our admiring eyes ! Merry jest and pardonable pun jostle gaily with athletic notices and literary criticism, and warnings to " the obstrep- erous, elbowed by bits of sage advice, almost stumble over faint-voiced but determined pleadings for " more college spirit. " What a queer little army the} ' make; their bodies dwarfed and feeble, evidently underfed, but their faces lit up with undj ' ing hope and indomitable determination. See them as the}- pass Tulane, pointing with parental pride to those organizations which now delight and educate the students. There goes a call for a glee club, armin-arm with a rumor that there is to be a college song. Here comes a gentle criticism on the last literary exercises, endeavoring to calm an excited call for a college band, while just behind them an encouraging notice about the lately-organized Tulane wheelmen beams graciously on a list of prizes for the coming road race. A banner bearing the inscription, " Baseball, " is held proudly aloft by a list of the players in last Saturday ' s game, and is staunchly guarded by a host of little notices, exhorta- tions, predictions, and bits of sundry information. Yonder goes, solitary, despairing, a howl for a college campus, followed at some distance by a .spirited little appeal for general enthusiasm. Here is a sturdy announcement that " Tulane needs a journal, " and bj its side glides a flattering statement about the amount of wasted genius. Here is a noisy crowd, wildly running about, hindering and helping each other alternately, and evidently not quite decided as to what is the best line of march. This stirring editorial, as he stri -es in resound- ing tones to get men on the football field, almost annihilates that insignificant little notice about the park ' s costing fifteen cents per player. An announcement that two former Tulane students, lately returned from Northern colleges, will teach our boys something about this new game, is earnestly conferring with a sanguine prophecy of future -ictories, and a cutting sarcasm waves triumphantly at them the scalps of several pessimists. On they go, with fluttering banners adorned with original sketches, keeping step to the inspiring mu.sic of earlj- Tulane poetry. The last, a grave editorial, carries aloft a skilfulh- drawn mid-winter scene, and waves a dignified farewell as he passes from our sight. Such were the feeble forerunners of Tulane literature. Stimulated by their example, other journalistic enterprises sprang into existence. One of the editorial staff turned his attention to the organization of the Tulane Collegian, and, as the approaching mid-year examination palsied the hand of another, the Tiilanc Topics, having carried out its avowed purpose of exciting interest in journalism, retired from active life. When the Topics stopped, the Collegian started. Since the only Topics editor who continued as a journalist was the prime mover in the organization of the Collegian, the little weekly maj ' be justly considered the forerunner of the latter-day journalism. The acorn has become the oak, and, as we recline beneath the broad-spreading branches, we fall into a gentle reverie and wonder at the mysterious evolution which makes to-day a part of to-morrow. m , i lllrtlU ' tClilll ' iliiUI ,-- The Tulane Collegian J- Board of Editors J- William Henry Hayward, ' 97, .

UBAhA A: Dear Sir — I have received your request, that as one of the first editors of T n- Spirit, I forward for your next issue a brief chronicle of the earl} ' days of that interesting journalistic infant. You thanked me in advance for the favor, and I beg to acknowledge the advantage. Though I appreciate the honor, for the sake of your subscribers I must decline the request ; for were I to write a true history of The Spit-it, in telling of its early days, I would relate the usual course of childish ailments — literary measles, financial colic, tj pographical chicken pox and editorial whooping cough. Tender-hearted Newcomb maidens might delight in the narrative of how the bright little Spirit, in the presence of its fond parents, Jennie and Ike, first opened its beautiful ' ' Olive and Bhce " e3 ' es on the stone steps of Gibson Hall ; but I fear that Senior and Junior would turn a listless ear from the simple tale. My dear sir, I have never in all my life read the biography of any great person- age, from General Grant to Buffalo Bill, that began with full details of earliest days, unless it be that of the young lady who lived a long life of unalloyed bliss by constantly taking Castoria. You are too exacting, Mr. Editor; j ' ou close with the contradictory requests that I make said chronicle brief and forward immediately — no stamps enclosed. Need I remind j ' ou, sir, of the gentleman who concluded his epistle thiis : " Excuse me, m} ' friend, for writing so much, but I have not the time to make this letter .shorter. ' ' Yet I do recall one interesting incident of its earliest da5 ' s, when it still boasted of being a closed corporation, which illustrates the Mark Hanna-like methods of its first stockholders, and justifies the legal maxim that corporations have no souls. Five weeks after The Spirit came into existence, and about the time when precedent justified writing on the title page, " delivered at more homes than any other paper in the South, " we found that our exhaustless treas- ure of fortj ' -five dollars was exhausted, and the jealous eyes oi ' The World. ' " and, we suspected, ' " The Sun, " were upon us. The danger was great, but our financier rose to the exigency of the hour. " What! " he cried, with patent medicine-like elocjuence ; " were we not created for the public good? Expand the stock — I disdain to water it — but expand it, and let others enjoj the blessings of editorship at twentj dollars a head. " So another name was placed on the left-hand corner of the second page, and with the aid of the gods and the help of the twenty dollars, The Spirit resumed her place among the mighty organs of the nation. And when her day of affluence came again, the financier contracted the stock, returned the twenty dollars to its owner and the owner to the multitude. If I may remark it, The Spirit not only informed its readers of the brief ephemera of the fleeting present, but showed in its columns the result of great historical research and travels into distant parts. I have been turning over its first nirmbers, and find there reported thirteen times the interesting and valuable information that " Daniel Webster edited the first college paper in America, " and that " houses in Sweden have red roofs. " I know not, Mr. Editor, whether in the future these dusty files will be food for thought or goats, but I am sure that even if one of us were to become editor-in-chief of the L,ondon Times, he would not consider the honor as great as when he issued those misspelt columns to the avid gaze of a vast horde of seventy-five readers, and combined harmoni- ously within himself all the journalistic characters from editor to proof-reader. There is a fable in newspaperdom that the souls of dead reporters are spe- cially a.ssigned in the next world, as it is useless to detail them either to heaven or hell, for there is nothing which they have not suffered and nothing which they would enjoy. They are therefore hurled into a vast emptiness, cut off from tele- graphs and bulletin boards. There is one virtue which will save college editors from this journalistic hell, and that is " a respectful but firm attitude towards the faculty. " Mr. Editor, the former editors of The Spirit will escape this fate, and sin- cerely hope to meet you. The Jamb.a.laya and Spirit staff in heaven. Respectfully, " The Spirit.

In its salutatory editorial it made clear the reasons for its existence, which, it said, were " to get out a paper which would reallj ' be a university paper, embracing all of its various departments, and being of equal interest to the Academic, Law, Medical, or Newcomb students. " For all this the small consideration of fifty cents only was asked for a year ' s subscription. The founders of the paper were Ernest L. Jahncke and Harry F. Thomson. The editorial staff was composed as follows : Harry F. Thomson, editor-in-chief; Sidney Lewis, literary editor; G. C. H. Kernion, general editor for the Law and Medical departments, and Ernest L. Jahncke, bu.siness manager. The older weekly. College Spirit, which had been pursuing the even tenor of its way for two years undisturbed by thoughts of competition, was rudely aroused from its dreams of security by this advent of a young and ambitious rival. It immediately realized the danger, and its next issue sounded the alarm by declaring that in all institutions where rival weeklies had existed, the result had invariably been the failure of the one or the other ; but as for itself, it felt perfectly secure of its own future. But Olive and Blue did not so regard matters, and in the following issue it laid down plainly the position which it intended to take. " We do not see why we both can not li -e and thrive, " it said. " The university is growing larger j ear by year, its influence and its work arc being extended, and a growing college spirit is drawing the various departments more closely together. It is certainly not our hope or expectation to rise upon the ruins of the Spin ' !, and we simply ask that that measure of support be accorded us that our merit justh- deserves. " Olive and Blue proved to be right. Both papers did live and thrive, and not only that, the more or less open rivalry existing resulted in immediate and unceasing improvement in both sheets. After its first issue the Olive and Blue board was increased bj- the election of two representatives from Newcomb, viz.: Miss Estelle John ( ' 97) and Miss Rosalie Nixon Cgg). After its second issue the board was still further enlarged by the addition of Robert S. Vickers ( ' 97), who was made editor-in-chief, and John W. McGehee, for the Medical Depart- ment. At the same time the size of the paper was increased from four to eight pages. After its next issue the vSenior Class was given another representative on the board, in the person of Hewitt L. Ballowe. After the fifth number Louis S. Goldstein (1900) was elected to the board as assistant business manager. At this time two more editors were added to the staff, namely; James B. Murphy ( ' 97) and J. S. Boatner ( ' 99). The following issue was the celebrated Christmas number, which all, students and faculty alike, admit to have been a credit to the University-. Olive and Bhie was now at the zenith of its success. Secure of its position, with a brief but brilliant past behind, and a promising future ahead, it could afibrd to make advances to the older paper. So, in its second issue after the Christmas number, it boldlj- asserted that it believed " the time had come to join forces, and to give Tulane University what it needed and should have, a daily neic ' spaper. ' ' This suggestion fell like a thunderclap on the serene air of Tulane. It had never been thought of before, and seemed more preposterous the more it was considered. In truth, it appeared so absurd to the University in general that the matter was not even discussed seriousl} ' . But there were men on College Spirit, as well as on Olive and Blue, who understood the conditions at Tulane, and who also knew their own ability. College Spirit received the suggestion with favor, and as the result of an agree- ment, a conference between the two papers, at which the founders of the Spirit also were present, was held on Sunday, Januar3 ' 17th, for the purpose of arrang- ing the details of the consolidation. It was agreed that the two papers should consolidate as a daily, and that whichever of the two names should be favored by a committee selected from the faculty, should be retained as the name of the new daily. This committee, which was composed of Professors Sharp, Woodward, and Monroe, decided in favor of the College Spi?-it. So on the 21st daj- of Januar}-, 1897, Olive and Blue made its last appear- ance, " bidding farewell to the friends who had supported it so faithfuUj- during its brief and prosperous career. " The name endeared to our hearts, " it said in its valedictory edi- torial, " by all the strong ties of affection, loving labor and success, we do with deepest sorrow regret to lose. We feel for the moment in lowering our gallant colors, as if all were lost ; but such is not the case. We lose our name, but not our honor or our identity. We have been united to the older paper and take its name. Henceforward, the two papers are one, and they will labor as one to pro- mote the interests and extend the reputation of Tulane Universit) ' . " Daily College Spirit Board of Editors R. S.

HEN the Southern Interstate Oratorical Association was formed, about six years ago, under the leadership of Sewanee, Vanderbilt and the University of Virginia, Tulane was asked to become a member of this Association, which was intended to embrace the principal colleges in the South. At that time, however, we did not feel in a position to avail our- selves of this opportunity and so reluctantly declined the invitation. But with the growth of our Universit} in solidarit_v and the progres.sive spirit of the literary societies, we felt at the beginning of this session sufficiently strong to measure our oratorical strength with an} ' in the land. Accordingly an application, signed by the respective presidents of the Glendy Burke Literary- Society and the New Literary Society, asking that Tulane be admitted to the Southern Intei ' state Oratorical Association, was forwarded to the President of that Association in October. Notwithstanding the efforts of that officer to get the different colleges to act on Tulane ' s application, the matter is still pending. However, of the few colleges which did consider the question, it was learned that some voted negatively, on the ground that the Association was already so large that the contests had become tediously long. Tulane, therefore, concluded that after all it would probably be more desirable to assume the leadership in organizing another Southern Association, for which it deemed there was ample room, since such leading universities as those of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina, where oratory was held in high esteem, were not in the old Association, nor, in fact, in any. Accordingly, invitations were sent, to the above-named institutions, asking each to send a representative to New Orleans to compete in oratory on March 4th, after which the formation of a permanent as.sociation would be considered by the as,sembled delegates. Favorable replies were received from all except the LTniversity of North Carolina. The Alabama and Mississippi representatives reached New Orleans in time to enjoy, as Tulane ' s guests, the carnival festivities on the ist and 2d. Georgia ' s representative was expected up to the last day, and it was only when a letter was received announcing that, because of some disagreement or misunderstand- ing among them, a representative would not be sent, that we knew that Georgia would not be in the contest. The contest on March 4th, therefore, narrowed down to the three States of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana; Louisiana, of course, being represented bj- Tulane. The judges had been selected b_v the visiting delegates, and were as follows : Professor Folwell, of the University of Minnesota, Bishop Davis Sessums and Judge Wirt Howe. President Wm. Preston Johnston, of Tulane, whose earl} and constant interest in the movement which we had inaugurated had alone made its success possible, presided as master of cere- monies. The result of this first contest is .still too fresh in our minds to go into details here. Tulane won, and for the first time m her history she celebrated a victory other than athletic. Of more significance still, her entliusiasm was little less thin that which follows a football triumph. On the following day the colleges represented, through their delegates, met and organized the Gulf States Itercollegiate Oratorical Associa- tion, of which Mr. Maurice G. Fulton, of Mississippi, was elected President, and John D. Miller, of Tulane, Secretary. It was decided, among other things, that Texas, North Carolina and Florida be invited to enter the Association, and that no State should be represented by more than one college. Georgia was, of course, held to be already in the Association. The names of the delegates who drew up this provisional constitution were ; Maurice G. Fulton, of Mississippi; Richard Holmes Powell, of Alabama, and Robert S. Vickers, of Tulane. After each one had pledged the hearty support of his respective college, the meeting adjourned, and the new oratorical associa- tion was born. t V? 5 Gulf States Intercollegfiate Oratorical Association First conte.st held at Tulane, March 4, 1S97.

' -IJ) 1 JAJOR PIERPONT RALSTON was a man who had lived through the greater part of three score and ten 3 ' ears. He liked societj ' , especially that of 3-ounger men, who in turn were fond of him; they liked to hear him talk, and his influence with them was strong and good, elevating them above the sordid things of everyday. As one young man expressed it after a lengthy conversation with him: " The Major makes a fellow feel that his object in life is to love humanity in general, his country, his honor, and his sweetheart in particular. " Besides this he was the best of company, and it was a recognized fact that no man at the club could tell a better story than he. Well might the paper kings and queens and the ivor} ' castles and knights tremble for their approaching downfall when he drew up his chair before the fire, for it was no uncommon thing, under such circumstances, to see the men leave their cards and chess to group themselves about the Major. With several of his stories I came to be familiar, but there were others which, told upon occasions to which thej were peculiarlj- appropriate, he would never afterwards repeat. " Bob, " he said one evening, " cheer up, my son; don ' t be so downcast. If you would follow my advice, go offer your apologies and make a complete explanation. There is nothing like a humble apology in case of any misunder- standing; it will never fail to make a thorough reconciliation. " " I don ' t owe any one an apology, " said Bob, brief!} ' . " Who told you that I had had an ' misunderstanding? " " Well, " replied the Major, " it did not require a great amount of observation to notice that you have been somewhat melancholy of late, and that you have been trying for the last few evenings to occupy yourself at home instead of paying your usual evening visit, and on that account I thought perhaps you had had a quarrel with your hostess. " To this the one addressed made no reply. Bob was my particular chum and the only child of the Major, who was naturally as much interested in his son ' s affairs as if they had been his own. We three — the Major, Bob and I — were whiling away a summer evening at the Major ' s residence. Bob was some- what downcast on account, as I well knew, of some disagreement with a young lady to whom he had been very attentive. 163 After a long silence the Major began : " Bo3-s, " said he, " let me tell j ' ou a story that, in a wa3 is something of a lesson to any one whose false pride rebels against an explanation. When I was about your age, a cousin of mine and I were just as you two boj-s are, inseparable. He was a splendid fellow, power- ful, both mentally and phj sically, but as gentle as a woman, and handsome — he had the finest mouth and merriest eyes you ever saw. Well, he was like Bob, he fell in love. His fiance was simply a treasure, and each was perfectly enrapt- ured with the other. I had almost forgotten to tell 3 ' ou that she was a particu- lar friend and protege of his aunt, Mrs. Carter, a charming old lad}% a Huguenot by descent, and something of an artist. In addition to this his aunt was fairly wealthy, and, being particularlj- fond of both John and Bess, not a great while after their engagement she invited them and a large number of their friends to her country home for a house party. That was a jolly crowd. I remember it well; your mother was there, Bob. To all appearances the partj was a magnifi- cent success, and for John and me, although at one time it looked extremely gloomy, in the end it turned out not unfortunately. One daj- we were sitting together under the large trees in front of the house when he, with a lover ' s watchfulness, saw Bess emerge from a patch of woods which lay at the foot of the hill to the left of the house. " ' Come on ' Pont, ' said he, ' let ' s go help Bess bring home those flowers, she seems to have more than she can conveniently carr ' . ' " I willingly assented, and we started down the hill. " ' What do you think of that? ' he said, handing me his watch, the back of which he had opened, disclosing a picture on the inside of the case. " ' Very pretty, ' I said ; ' looks as if a friend of ours had posed for it. ' " ' No, ' replied John, ' Aunt Louise tried to paint a miniature of Bess with- out her knowing it, but she could not get the expression about the eyes, and so she painted that mask, as you see, over the upper part of the face. ' " ' It is a great pity that she did not suc- ceed better, ' I remarked, ' becau,se, while this is a very prettj ' little picture, it has no value for its likeness and very little for its beauty compared to what it would have had without the mask. ' ' ' ' You should have waited to tell Bess all that, ' replied John, laughing, as he re- placed the watch in his pocket. A little farther down the hill, beyond the high mass of Cherokee bushes which grew beside the fence along the road, we came upon Bess, perched upon the top rail, with her arms full of golden rod. 164 " ' Well, well, ' laughed John, ' how did -ou ever get up there with all those flowers ? ' ' I hadn ' t much trouble getting up, ' she replied, smiling, ' but I ' m afraid I can ' t get down without spilling them all. ' I volunteered to take charge of the golden rod, and she handed it to me. ' ' But, Bess, you look tired, ' continued John. ' Well, I was, ' she answered, blushing, ' until you came, but I ' m all right now. I have something for you, ' she exclaimed, as she jumped to the ground; ' guess what it is, ' she then demanded, holding both hands behind her. " ' I give it up, ' said John, a trifle perplexed. " ' If you ' ll not guess, ' she replied, ' I suppose I shall have to give it to j-ou anyhow. Lend me your watch. ' " John did so hesitatingl} ' . " ' Put it in the front, ' said he, seeing that she was making an effort to open the back. " ' No, ' she replied, ' the first time 3 ' ou open the watch it will fall out, ' and Avith that she wrenched the watch so that the back of the case opened, and she was confronted with the picture in mask. Bess turned crim,son. John laughed heartily. But she was in no laughing humor. I never saw one ' s manner so completely changed. She summoned all her dignity and clenched her little hand so hard that the four-leafed clover was crushed between her fingers. " ' I should think you would have ceased to care for girls ' pictures. Why does she wear a mask? ' she said, then turned and walked awa}-. John was quickly serious, not because he had done anything wrong, but because it was so evident that she thought he had. He looked up the hill, and I thought he was on the point of going after her to explain, then he tnrned to me; the idea of explaining had evidentlj- occurred to him, but after a moment ' s hesitation he said firmly : ' No, Pierpont, I will make no explanation. She had no right to mistrust me. " " ' It is very strange, ' I answered, ' that she did not recognize the picture. ' " ' It is peculiar, ' said he, gazing at the watch which she had handed to me, ' but no matter. She may find out about it. but never from me — nor from j ' ou, Pierpont, ' he continued, gripping my shoulder with his powerful hand, ' remember, you are not to mention it. ' " ' But, John, ' I protested, ' unless there is an explanation from some source — ' " ' I owe her no explanation whatever, ' he interrupted, ' unless she asks for it. She has suspected me without a reason and censured me without a hearing. In other words, she has been too hasty in both proceedings, and until she broaches the subject she shall never hear a word from me, and I want you to promise to say nothing to her about it. ' " ' Very well, ' I answered. " ' Boys, ' interpolated the Major, ' that is one of the things which I have never ceased to regret. ' " ' I would like to have been on hand at the final reconciliation after that little episode, ' remarked Bob. " ' Ah, my son, ' answered the Major, ' I, too, would like to have seen that. ' ' ' ' Which do you think was in the wrong ? ' inquired Bob. " ' The girl, ' replied his father, ' and for a long time I almost hated her for her injustice. That evening, ' he continued, ' John waited anxiously for tea time, expecting that he must certainly see her, and that she could scarcely fail to ask some question which would lead up to the subject of the picture. But he was disappointed. When all the company were assembled Bess ' s place was vacant. When he missed her from the table he set his heart upon the following day as the t ime when they must inevitably meet. But at breakfast, although they sat together, she did not show by word or sign any relaxation from her austerity of the day before. My seat at the table was opposite to theirs, and from that posi- tion I could watch them closely. While there was not in the conduct of either the slightest trace of awkwardness, yet I could plainly see the strenous effort that each must make to restrain their own emotions and to retain complete control of their different faculties. As, later in the day, I sat quiet and thoughtful on the wide, shady porch, I sincerely wished that something might be done toward reconciling those two lovers, for their human natures could not long withstand the strain of such effort towards restraint as that which I had witnessed. I thought of several plans, but they all involved the cooperation of some one el.se, and I knew not where to turn for a.ssistance. While I sat pondering over some course that I could pursue alone, our hostess, Mrs. Carter, came and sat beside me before I knew of her presence. " ' Pierpont, ' said she, ' I want to take you into my confidence. I am very much annoyed about something, although I don ' t know whether there is any cause lor il or not. Did ()u notice anything peculiar about the conduct of your vis-a-vis at table this morning? ' " ' It was a trifle unusual, ' I replied, ' but I did not see anything to attract attention. ' " In fact, up to that time I had thought that no one else had observed John or Bess, but it was now evident that their estrangement had not failed to attract the watchful eye of our hostess. Her question was such a surprise to me that I was not prepared to answer it. It seemed that fortune had sent me an ally, and yet I was uncertain whether or not to accept her a.ssistance. " ' Well, ' she continued, ' from the way they acted, and on account of several other little things that I have noticed elsewhere, it seemed to me that they are not in perfect harmon) ' with one another. That was what worried me, and I thought you might be able to account for it. ' " ' Well, Mrs. Carter, ' I replied, ' since you have guessed the truth, there can be no objection to my telling all that I know about the matter, and, in fact, all that there is to be known. ' . " I then told her the whole .storj ' as I had seen it enacted. It amused her considerably, because it was she who had painted the picture. " ' Well, there is a very simple remedy for all that, ' she said, ' I will simply tell Bess that she has been mistaken. ' " ' No, ' I replied, ' I don ' t think that that is altogether a good idea, because it is always a difficult matter for a girl to make an apology, and, besides, John would certainly think that I had had something to do with it. I think it would be better, if possible, to arrange so that the whole affair would straighten itself without the apparent interference of anj ' one. ' " ' Perhaps that would be the best plan, ' said Mrs. Carter. We then began a length} ' discussion as to the best means of accomplishing it. Finally we decided upon a plan that seemed to promise success, and at the same time was not lacking in ingenuitJ " We had all been talking for some time of having a masqued dance some evening before the party broke up. Mrs. Carter and I determined to bring it off the next evening, and to use it as a means to accomplish our end. We would send John to the city to obtain the necessary paraphernalia, and thus dispose of liim for the present, meanwhile everyone else would be occupied in making the other necessary arrangements. " Mrs. Carter managed the whole matter very cleverly ; she induced Bess and a Miss Hierton, who were very much alike in appearance, to wear costumes that were identical in every detail, each with a small, black mask, similar to the one she had painted in the miniature. She also contrived, by what means I don ' t know, to make Bess a little later than the rest in appearing in the parlor; and when Bess did appear I noticed, as Mrs. Carter pointed her out to me, that there was somewhat more. excitement in her manner than could justly be attrib- uted to the dance. ' ' She had been in the room only a .short while when I saw John ask her for 167 a dance. She hesitated for a moment, then consented, and off they went, three times around the room, then walked out on the porch and down to the remotest corner. Long afterwards, toward the end of the evening, I went on the porch ; they were in the self-same place, and had been there all the while. When they did eventually come in, John was dangling the little black mask in his fingers. " Our plan had succeeded admirabl}-. After all, it was verj- simple. When Be.ss, in preparing for the masqiierade, saw herself in mask, she was at once struck b}- the similaritj ' of her own appearance to that of the miniature, and it then dawned upon her that the picture in John ' s watch was perhaps her own portrait. She then began to doubt the justice of her own course in the matter. It was this doubt that caused her agitation when she entered the parlor, and it was on this account that she granted John ' s request for a dance, which she would otherwise have considered the grossest impertinence. John, on the other hand, having already danced with Miss Hierton and found her out before Bess appeared, when he spoke to the latter was mistaking her for the former ; but during the dance, finding that he had fallen into the same error with regard to Bess herself that she had made with regard to her picture, he was inclined to judge less harshl - of her conduct on the da} ' before, and thus were they recon- ciled. " I Never Can Forget You I ' d rather see a thought of mine Reflected in a face, Than have it for all time to shine In some immortal place ; I ' d rather write in smiles my name Upon one human heart, Than on the lasting scroll of Fame, Where feeling bears no part. In future years, if you shovild turn From present joys away. To muse o ' er friendships that have blessed Some distant yesterday. And in that hour, one word of mine Finds echo in your soul. Life ' s noblest purpose is attained — I seek no higher goal. In that .sweet hour, " when sad thoughts Bring pleasant thoughts to mind, " When memories come thronging From days of " Auld Lang Syne " ; When my heart singles out in dreams The dearest friends I knew. Then will I wander back again, And spend an hour with you. I never can forget you. Whatever years may bring To me of joy or sorrow. On Time ' s remorseless wing. Oblivion dare not touch your name. By memory sanctified — I never can forget you. Whatever may betide.

That rang with the sound of the warfare, now still in the silence of slumber. Departed from thence are the warriors who, fought on the field of the Romans, And at rest are the small Roman horses who, basely deserting their owners, Turned tail in the midst of the conllict, and fled from the sound of the trumpet. ' - Gone is the clash and the din, but still on the field of the struggle Linger the scattered remains of the gallant host who at morning Went galloping forth on their ponies, so bravel) ' , to meet and to conquer. Strewn o ' er the ground are the lances, their points all blunted and broken, And the corpses of war-steeds ignoble, who fell while abandoning duty. Lie rigid and still on the " campus, " like " wretched and unburied Romans In the lost and buried Republic, " as Cicero touchingly tells us. Take heart, O all ye brave warriors, though crushed aud o ' erwhelmed and discouraged ; Arouse your strength, advance, aiid trust to yourselves, not to ponies. After numberless failures, as the old poet sings, comes the vict ' ry, Press forward, O comrades and friends, and, Salve ! to each new encounter. The steutoriau voice of the preceptress. Postprandial " Speaking of fads, " said Jepson, as he leaned against the ma ntel over the fireplace and held his hands behind him, partly to warm them and partly, perhaps, to keep from scorching his coat-tails, " I think this mania for wearing buttons is the most absurd, idiotic thing I ever saw. Why every man, woman and child you meet should make themselves a walking advertisement for some brand of bicycle, chewing gum or tobacco, is something that I can ' t understand. Either it is a survival of the savage propensity for personal adornment, or else it is an eifect of the great American idea and desire — to get something for nothing. The average American is so well pleased and flattered at receiving something, however valueless, for which he gives nothing in return, that he makes a fool of himself trying to utilize it. " You may not believe it, " continued the speaker, seeing that his listeners seemed to be interested in what he was saying, ' ' but the other day on my way home I saw such a number of buttons — one had on it, ' Don ' t Kick, ' another, ' I ' m Something of a Liar Myself; There are Others, ' and another, ' Ride the Somefake Wheel ' — that it set me thinking what could be the motive of people who wore them. I couldn ' t then, and don ' t now, see any reason for the fad, but the more I puzzled over it the more fascinating the question became, until finally I couldn ' t think of anything else. My memory persisted in recalling such expressions as ' Ah, There! Kiss Me Quick, ' and similar foolishness; and so it was during the whole evening. The result was that I dreamed about buttons. " " What did you dream ? " a.sked one of the group. " Well, to begin with, " replied Jep.son, " I dreamed I was dead, or at least I was in the place of departed spirits. " " It must have been a frightful nightmare, " interrupted another bystander. " It was, indeed, " .said Jep.son. " The fir.st thing I saw was Cerberus, and on his middle neck he wore a collar button labeled, ' Three of a Kind. ' The next distinguished thing I came across was the shade of Dickens, on whose lapel there was a button bearing a little brown jug and the title, ' Our Mutual Friend. ' I think I should have died a second lime if I hadn ' t had the small consolation that these iuscriptions were, at least, different from any I had seen before. Imac ine my utter desperation and despair, ' ' here Jepson ' s manner became very earnest, " when there appeared to my bewildered eyes the ghost of Balaam I — " " I5alaam ! " exclaimed some one. " Yes, " replied Jepson. " I don ' t pretend to know what business brought him there, but on his vestment was a button with the words, ' Don ' t Kick. ' I suppose the admonition was intended for his stubborn donkey, but it made me feel like kicking him across the Styx. I was thoroughly disgusted : the buttons of the Eternal World hadn ' t even the redeeming feature of novelt}-. This I realized more forcibly when I saw the shade of the great Munchausen, who.se button bore the same old chestnut, ' I ' m vSomething of a Liar Myself; There are Others. ' " ' Where are the rest — the other liars? ' I made bold to a.sk. " ' I have but few rivals, ' replied he ; ' the Cuban war correspondents, but they are not here 3et. ' " The answer was .satisfactory, and I passed on to the throne of Pluto. There sat the monarch of the lower regions ; he, too, wore buttons ; on his right, one reading, ' Ride the Ixion Wheel, ' on his left, one reading, ' Tantalian ; Best of Mineral Waters. ' I began to think m)- punishment in Hades was to be haunted by buttons. But I had no time to theorize ; I felt my limbs grow hard and cold as I saw the shade of Medusa come rushing toward me with outstretched arms, and alas ! as her bright breastplate came before my eyes, I saw therein reflected my own coat, whereon was a button inscribed, ' Kiss Me Quick ' — but I woke up. " " I think Munchausen is no longer prince of liars, " said some one, when Jepson had ceased to speak. — Tulane Collegiaii. " p Is seen, The shepherd ' s lamb at dawn.

That make our life complete. Light your pipe and listen, Fill up your glass to brim ; See the red wine glisten. Hear our Bacchanalian hymn. Some to great Apollo bow. And praise him god of light ; A few to Mars as chief allow Main prowess, glory, might. Others look to Jove on high — Chief ' mong gods and men ; But we to Bacchus all draw nigh On bended knee, I ken. We crown his brow with iv)-. With purple grape entwine The god ' s own thyrsus heavy. Symbolic of fine wiue. Hear the cymbal clashing, The cry of wild delight; See the glasses flashing This wild commencement night. Come, let ' s all be jolly ; Play, drink — tomorrow die ; We ' 11 quaff to Mistress Folly And give stern life the lie. Gather ' roimd the table ; Throw the rattling dice ; Put up whoe ' er is able, To wine it adds a spice. Some love the lovely lady And pledge her for tonight ; Say lips we woo are " shady, " Not .so, " They ' re out of sight! No rose is auy redder, — Toss a glass off here — We each bow down before her, A siren does she lure. Her moods they ever vary, A charm that ' s all her own, From dark to light — a fairy, Her slaves we are foresworn. See it glance and sparkle, The warm blood through her vein ; The starry colors dartle. Oh ! She is never tame. The god of wine he gave us This goddess wondrous fair; All praise be ours to Bacchus, With mortals did he share. Sound the trumpet gaily, Olympus hears the ring — Her voice, too, rises daily In loud acclaim for him. -L. F. 176 " H5bpsR _. -- 5 i» n aj-is jair sft f Sk ii l W ' ' i ' 2 M.
