T is with a feeling of great pleasure tl1at we dedicate this little volume
to our friend and faculty class officer. Dr. Hodgen. The idea of a
book by the students and for the students has been our aim, and
it is the unanimous wish of the junior Class that this slight token
of our regard be extended to him. A brief sketch of his life is here
