Wqvi' UR reception at West Point was not exactly what we had expected. but we didn't make a
ev word of protest. It was a predestined conclusion, incontrovertibly foregone, to our minds
l 1 . 1 ' , that we were to make the Class of IQII the greatest in the history of the Academy, and that
lf fi- 'X 'I her members should almost without exception have names that should rank in coming
' time beside those of Lee and Grant. Accordingly we saved our remonstrances in order to

'We were well aware of the fact that our Beasts' Barracks was the worst that had been
served in many years, but it wasthe making of us. CSome have gone so far as to state that
it was also the makings of Skag and Seary.l Those first few weeks served to weed out from among us those
who were unable or unwilling to face the music, and to make us appreciate each other the more in mutual
admiration of the pluck displayed in remaining until the shout. Truly we were all embryonic generals!
It is useless to dwell on those days, which now through the kaleidoscopic lenses of retrospection appear
merely as a horrible nightmare of unending duration. None of us can forget how we were lined up in squads
of ten to be received by two immaculate cadets who dashed down upon us like the rains that descended on the
house of the foolish man, nor how we fell and how great was the fall thereof. Still vivid in our minds is that
first visit to the cadet store, and how we doubletimed to our rooms with mattresses, chairs, buckets, brooms and
clothes-bags filled with everything from bay rum to white shirts.
Who cannot recall the innumerable formations, not the least of which
were the daily baths and the awkward squad? In the immortal
words of the poet, " Nobody." We lived through it all, however, and
by the time we were marched to camp we were well willing to cast off
the appellation of "beast " and writhe under the title of "plebe."
Our Plebe Camp was dee-lightfull Vie were never troubled with
idle moments, but enjoyed ourselves always in cleaning equipments,
attending formations, and assuming military positions. Plebe Camp
knitted us together more firmly, and when we went into barracks we
were beginning to assume the general outline of a class.
VVC sustained more loss through resignations than any other
class in many years, but, as a rule, we were none the worse off for
these losses. NVO suffered greatly, however, when at the end of the
Christmas exams eleven of our most worthy goats fell under the mer-
ciless hand of the Departments of Math and B. S., with the grave
accent on the B. S.. Nevertheless, we Jlodded wearil on soundinff

leisurely approaching March. lt was then that we were rec-
ognized on account of the incoming of a new class, and it
was then that we began to feel that warm and unending
current of comradeship that runs through every heart and
so closely links together in the greatest and most wholesome
of fraternal ties every wearer of the gray. In truth we
were now real cadets, and the man of to-day was no more
like the plebe of yesterday than peroxide of hydrogen is like
a conventional sign. From that time we became a class--
so recognized, and so in activity. Realizing that we were
no longer under the molding' lingers of the other classes,
ue saw and understood that we should hereafter be held
mercilessly responsible For our own actions. How well we
Our Yearling Camp was a pretty dream of one
whole week's duration. lVe showed to the proud
satisfaction of all concerned that our First Class
Camp would be above the average, and how much
above is only a matter for time to prove.
There never has been a better Practice March
than that of last summer. Despite the fact that
it rained nearly all the tiine, everyone was filled
with the best spirits. We were all participants in
the demolition of Cedar Cliff Inn and the stampede
of Hill Crest Hall. Not one of us but enjoyed that
week more than we had ever expected, but there
was not one of us who was not glad to yell, at its
close, "Never again with a 1nusket!"
School started once more and we became the
official " Furlough Class." Although we had piped
shall fulfill the trust imposed upon us history shall uncom-
promisingly relate. Merrily we marched along till the joyful
days of june, fearing always lest we exhibit unusual B. jfity
for Fourth Classnien, but happy in the assurance that
nothing is too B. bl. for a yearling.
When we gathered round for the final celebration of our
first year's exit, Pechols was in good trim, and we rose from
the table to find six of our men lying prostrate beneath the
festive Academic Board.
ln camp our reputation was made. ln all the brew and
boodle, hops and spooning, golf and tennis, boating and so
forth Cinostly the lastl we were prominent. Never before
has there been so much of all these, and never before have
the yearlings displayed so much initiative. A cloud of
gloom enveloped us during july because of the loss of
seven of our best men. They were sent home for hazing the
wooden plebes, but we soon rejoiced with them xi hen
their punishment was made only one year's turn-baclc,
with a year's suspension.
it since Beasts' Barracks, it now became the all-important theme of thought. We waded into Math and French
"as a giant rejoicing to run his course" until the Christmas writs, when we presented an appearance similar to the
penitent prodigal. There seven men fell under the tenth-destroying rapid-fire guns of the Math Department,
which was securely entrenched behind a breastworks of Descript and Calcule.
In January we lost two men in a long but quiet battle with the Dis. detachment of the enemy, and in Febru-
ary the Integral battery disintegrated us to the extent of two more.
On the third of March we betook ourselves to the great city of Washington to insure the proper inaugu-
ration of Mr. Taft. It was only another soiree, but as our lives are a continual stream of soirees, one so unusual
was welcomed as a change.
And now, with the approach of june, we go to the battery to sing our Furlough songs. On these balmy
spring evenings as we mingle our voices in sweet songs of our furlough girl and furlough moon and all the happi-
ness so soon to come, we can peer into that far-off blackness ahead of us and almost distinguish, in that land
where dreams come true, the golden sheath-gown of that beautiful goddess we have worshipped so long-Fur-
lough herself! We feel our hearts quicken with happiness as we watch the rapid approach of that day when we
can reach forward with eager hands and part the curtains which have separated us so long from those thou-
sands of joys that lie beyond. Furlough and Freedom, Summer and Sunshine, are standing there waiting to
escort us to the four corners of this country and to remain with us while we realize the sweetest of our dreams,
the fondest of our hopes.

, THLETICS at the Military Academy has long occupied an important place. The one thought
PN N which is born into a man when he enters here, which he carries with him throughout his
6 fi Asx , life, and which he teaches his children to say as soon as they can talk, is "Lick the Navy in
7- ' Athletics." For this reason we write this article, that we may heap crowns of praise upon
those of our heroes who have thus far added honor and distinction to our class as well as
.iff to the Corps.
In football we have given the team some of their best men-'not many, but each one
counts for a few in himself. Wier, Surles, and Kern wear the football "A," and a dozen others wear the football
scars which they have received in that thankless and unappreciated capacity as scrubs. These men have helped
make our team what it is, and to them belongs much credit and praise.
In basketball Conard, Surles, and Hardy are our star players, and few there be who can toss the spheroidal
pigskin so' accurately as they. Grey, R. L., McKinney and a half-dozen others are on the squad. and we are sure
they will be among' the best players next year. 1
In baseball we have not been very famously represented. Many of our men turned out, but they didn't
make good. Gonser made his "A," and was an excellent all-round player, but he was turned back in " Dis."
While Fate frowned upon us in this, Fortune turned to smile on us soon after, for McNiel--now the best pitcher
on the staff-came down from the Second Class. '
Nance, Hoisington, Simpson, B. W., and Dargue are on the fencing squad, and one of them will fence against
the Navy next year. .
We are sorry that the Marathon squad of Beast Barracks cannot be classed here as athletics, for we broke
several records at that. Foster, S. H., might be mentioned as the hero in that line.
In the Indoor Meet we came out "goot," and we have no apologies to make. We have turned out in every-
thing and have done our best, but we haven't had the proper kind of athletics in the right proportion by
weight and volume. I

OFF 'ro CAMP
UQ""' - HY hello, old man! I'm awfully glad to see you. You are on leave, I suppose. What! not
v in the Army? Why, man, I thought you would make the Engineers! Yes, I've been back
E X to the old place once. It's a long story, but if you really wish to hear it I'll try to tell you.
As you may remember, it was at my Plebe Christmas that I was found in Math and
given my discharge from the Academy. I had come to hate the place, and had made a reso-
6, lution never to return, but time mellows memories, and in May, 1911, I found myself once
more at the Point, with the object of looking up my former classmates.
Accordingly I went to the guard-house to call out some of the fellows, and upon entering the O. Dfs
oftice I was greeted by that official himself in the form of Private Heidt-weariing caplaiws chevrmzs.
He remembered me and directed me to Phil Fleming's room, where I expected to find some of my old
friends. I knew West Point well enough to know better than knock, so I opened the door and walked in.
What do you suppose I saw? Well, I'll tell you. Seated around a table in the center of the room were Phil
Fleming, Paul Reinecke, Bennie Lockwood, Hoisington, Bowley, and Porty Nance--playing poker! I was dum-
founded, and after shaking hands with them I proceeded to say so.
"Oh, this is nothing!" said Paul, "only a little Gfty-cent limit game. VVe were getting tired any way
and were going to stop when you came in. Thirsty?"
I admitted that I'd like a drink of cool water. U
"Water nothing! Bennie, get out the booze---that full quart. You see we have to keep it pretty well
hidden to-day, for Heidt is O. D., and he's such a quill he wouldn't hesitate to skin us. I-Ie is too efficient to
" Well, fellows, what's the news?" I asked, as soon as we had gotten settled and had our drinks. "Tell me
aboutthings. You know I haven't been here in three years. Who are the makes and honor men?"
"Well," said Bennie, "you shouldn't expect much news about makes from a crowd of bucks like us, but
I'1l tell you all I can. Snake Evans is, of course, adjutantg he has all the requisites, including form and a liking
for the skin bookg then, too, he is one in dis. Private Heidt is first captain, and a fairly good one, but a quill.
The other captains are O'Neill, Blunt, McCleary, Burlingame and March. I was second ranking first Sergeant
last year, but His Majesty the Com. got sore because I wou1dn't use the quill. Somehow it's not in me to
skin a fellow, so my ehevrons fell. Rowley wouldn't bone bootlick either, with the same result. As- for me, l'd
rather be a good old buck anyway. l.et's have another one. Pass the bottle, Phil."
The bottle was passed, then passed again, and the crowd soon became more talkative. Porty Nance
finally succeeded in getting the floor.
"Tell you what, fellows, things are goin' to hell around here now. The instructors we have are all lemons.
without an exception. Being a member of Phil Fleming's goats, I suppose I ought not to expect. much more
than lemons, but Heffernan says it's the same way in the first section. Who'll come out one? VVhy Heff, I
supposeg but Cowles and Kern will run him a close second. Oh, hush, fellows! You make too much noise! Shut
up, Paul! shut up!"
But Paul wouldn't shut up. Liquor had loosened his tongue, and after a few introductory oaths he began:
" 'M goin' t' Y. M. C. A. t'nightg jus t'tell President Frank Clay whosser matter 'ith him. He's too sant'fied
t' suit me. Got insulted 'cause I said 'damn' 'fore him, and wanted t' whip me when I ast 'im t' dhrink. Lesh
'ave 'nother dhrink-ffnish big dhrink--'nd goter bed. I'm sleepy. 'Night, I'm sleep! 'Night, fellows! 'Niglitl---ff"
I looked around me. All had fallen asleep during Paul's talk, and now his eyes were closed too. Silently
I made my way out of the room and towards the station---wondering. You've been there, old maui could you

Once around and back again.
See them drill!

Heat that fairly makes you reel.
It's always drill!
And it's drill, drill, drillg Yes, it's drill, drill, drill, So itis drill, drill, drill,

When from my bed at reveille
My weary bones I slowly drag,
The only cheerful thing I see--
'l'he makings of my morning skagl
At breakfast, as I wade through slum,
My thoughts receive a pleasant pull
Then as I slowly homeward come,
My thoughts are on my skag of Bull.

My thinking stream begins to lag,
'Tis then I need the joyful smile
And fragrant' breath of a bully skag.
And coming home from dry old Math,
I hear the tlenthoids gladly brag
Of maxesg then I hide my wrath
In the consolation of a skag.
When French is over, back I come
And dragging out pomade and rag.
A sailor might forget his rum,
But never I my little skag.
And when for dinner lirst call goes,
I've got to have a final dragg
And while I dress, the perfume Hows
So freely from my dear olcl skag.
Then as I inastieate the food
Until my place for slum is lull,
Although it may be pretty good,
My aftermath's a skag of Bull.
And now as this draws to an end--
For you can well supply the rest-

Qvf pf K ' my!-and they really give you a good speaking knowledge of them?"
"Oh, yes! You see an Army officer serves in the Islands and must have Spanish at his
I tongue's end, and then an emergency may arise any day for a knowledge of French."
" Well, I do think it's wonderful. And it has already helped out in your case. Think
what a help you were in court, when they had that Spanish prisoner. Oh, you never spoke of it, but we saw
it in the paper just the same. I'd be bursting with pride if I were such a linguist."
jimmy Langdon looked at his fair cousin with a vague distrust. Was she making fun of him? She was
quite capable of it. He realized with a pang that he had talked loudlyand too long of his accomplishments,
and was secretly glad to know that no one who knew Spanish had heard his feeble attempt in court as an
erstwhile interpreter. If Anne Radnor had any intention of chafling, it was well hidden, and Jimmy was
forced to let the case rest without knowing. Fond relatives, pretty girls, and admiring younger cousins had so
turned jimmy's head during the first few days of Furlough that he had loosed his tongue, and, after the manner of a
young man who suddenly feels himself the centre of attraction, had allowed himself 'to enlarge upon his prowess to
such an extent that he blushed to think of the consequences should any of his classmates hear of the tales.
The day after this conversation jimmy received a dainty blue note addressed in an ultra-fashionable hand
to "Mr. james Langdon, U. S. C. C.," which caused his already soaring quotation on himself to rise several more
points. Within, jimmy read the following:
Mother is giving a dance at the Country Club, on Tuesday of next week, to my friends. Of course it
could not he a success without your uniformed presence. Dorothy Tysedale, one of my old friends, has just
returned from abroad and will be there. General Tysedale has been in the consular service somewhere in Spain,
and Dorothy has been with him there for the last two years. She comes back to us very foreign in her manner,
and speaks Spanish like a native. Knowing that you speak Spanish so well, and feeling that the language will
give you two a topic of conversation, so to speak, I have taken it upon myself to ask her to go to the dance
with you. Now, jimmy, you have been so very nice that you musn't refuse this. Besides, I am most anxious
to show off my bell-buttoned and martial relative. Your admiring cousin, ANNE G. RADNOR'
jimmy had smoked six cigarettes, one after the other, without stirring from his seat after reading his cousin's
note, then he retired to his room to further ponder over this terrible turn in affairs. An immortal in French,
he had remained a goat in Spanishg and the thought of his struggles through habla, lzablas, habla made the perspi-
ration stand out on his brow. Langdon-linguist! Alliteration-fabrication!
The tender inquiries of his mother at luncheon served only to increase his sudden subdued state, and when
he set out with the intention of taking a walk, with the thermometer at nearly loo degrees, the worthy parent
became quite anxious for her son's condition. She wondered if it could be the beginning of mental unbalance
resulting from a too diligent application to languages during the past year and a half.
jimmy walked aimlessly but rapidly for an hour, his mind a chaos. If he might only be back in a section
room now with the Theorem of Mean Value covering his board-what torture his Furlough had suddenly become!
He discussed ways and means feverishly. Could he be taken ill, or could the girl be bribed? Couldn't he be
called out of town, or fall over a precipice somewhere before Tuesday? Try as he would to sidestep the issue,
there appeared no solution to the problem. He would have to go, and he shuddered and glanced sheepishly at
a passerby as he thought of the consequences. When he suddenly remembered that he had been walking aim-
lessly about, he looked up to orient himself. Across the street stood the library, and conceiving an idea, he rushed
into the building and began a search through the card catalogue. He remembered dimly that "all card catalogues
are made up on the same general plan," but this one was quite unlike any he had ever seen. Finally he found
Foreign Languages, and Spanish. He thumbed through a list of texts that he had never before heard of, then
suddenly the name of one of them pierced the fog of his brain. There it stared him in the face: "El Castellano
Actual, Roman y Sala-mera." Ye gods! and this was the Furlough of his dreams! He made out a card and
thrust it through at the young woman at the window, fearful lest she should read his true predicament on the
simple card. It seemed an age until the attendant found the bookg no doubt none had ever called for it before.
.At last it came, and Langdon saw again the hateful blue binding.
He carried it to the most secluded spot that he could Find and began to look it over. He turned to the
back to "Asuntos para conversarf' Here and there he recognized a word, but even in the scant month he had
forgotten nearlygall that he had ever known. It was useless, and he snapped the book shut viciously. With
wrinkled brow he spent half an hour trying to surmise what kind of conversation his partner-to-be might make,
and then to carry it on in Spanish. But the more he struggled the less he succeeded. With all his exercise in
conversation in the section room, he could not put together a decent sentence. Finally he resolvedthat it was
impossible to attempt to talk to the girl, yet that would bring the everlasting ridicule of all the rest of his
numerous relatives who had heard his tales, beating about his ears. There remained only one way, and that
was to bluff it through. jimmy felt himself more of a master at this, for had he not become proficient in the
gentle art during two years of the struggle to keep his instructors from finding out how little he knew of his enun-
ciations? Nevertheless, he still held strong misgivings on the approaching ordeal, and grew more morose as the
few remaining days passed.
'At last Tuesday evening came around, and eight o'c1ock found jimmy, in dress-coat and neatly broken
trousers, waiting at the Radnor's until Anne and Miss Tysedale should come down. All day he had been nervous
and had smoked innumerable cigarettes, but now he was singularly composed, and seemed possessed of that quiet
that precedes a decisive action. It was too late now for anything to be done, so he set his jaw more firmly and
waited for what the evening might bring. He had many times experienced the same feeling of throwing himself
madly into some subject that he was utterly ignorant of, striving to make what he couldg but never before had
the setting been the same-it always had been his bluff against the instructor's ability to draw him out into
definite statements. He felt that this was a thousand times worse than the other, and that he wouldn't make " pro."
"Muy bien, 1.5!" he sighed. .
There came a swishing on the stairs, and jimmy gave one last tug on his coat and turned to face the music.
Hjimmyl You look like you'd stepped out of a bandbox! Such immaculateness I never dreamed of!
I'm learning more every day of the benefits of a West Point training! Dorothy, this is my cousin, Mr. Langdon.
Jimmy, Miss Tysedale. Dorothy, all the girls will be jealous of you to-night---I am myself. And I suppose you
two will carry on a glib conversation in an utterly unknown tongue all the time you are with me I"
A Jimmy looked anything but glib just at the moment, but summoned the courage to look at Miss Tysedale.
"Well, plain United States sounds the best to me of anything I've heard," she said, quicklyg "I shall be
perfectly content to speak something that everyone can understand, Mr. Langdon."
Jimmy's spirits immediately began to climb out of the depths of despair. The girl didn't seem over-anxious
to make the first speech in Spanish, and if he could only keep from having to do so himself, he might come
out with flying colors. i
He got through the ride to the Country Club successfully, although his cousin made several attempts to.
start the Spanish. For some strange reason, Miss Tyscdale didn't seem at all eager over the prospect. Indeed
after the third time his cousin had broached the subject, jimmy thought he could detect a slight uneasiness in
his partner's manner. His spirits rose steadily, and when he had finished the first dance he was quite jubilant.
Miss Tysedale was possessed of wonderful brown hair, dark eyes whose flash seemed to carry with it a strain
from Carmen, and a daintily molded chin which, he was sure, was the most attractive he had ever seen. In fact,
he was quite ready to fall in love with her, had there not always remained the one obstacle. But she hadn't
mentioned the subject at all, and he felt quite hopeful when he left her.
He had the fifth dance on her card, and memories of that chin made him hasten to claim it, overriding the
fear that she might at any moment discover how limited was his knowledge of Spanish. After the dance was
over, they found a cool place on the broad, lantern-hung porch, and jimmy settled down to watch the chin. Still
she hacln't even mentioned Spain, and he began to feel that she might be avoiding the subject. He had come to
feel so sure of himself that when there came a pause he said-seemingly carelessly, yet watching her closely:
" You haven't told me a thing about Spain. Did you like it? Does the country prove so-eh-romantic
on close acquaintance as its language seems?"
.The girl started perceptibly, and then quickly caught herself.
"Oh, yes! Spain is really most romantic. But, Mr. Langdon, I made a sudden resolution this afternoon to
say just as little about it as possible in the future. I-I--fear that-that I have been too persistent on the
subject, especially with Anne. Constantly hearing about something so uninteresting must prove palling on my
listeners," and then, without pausing for him to say the polite thing, she hastened on: "I want to hear about
West Point. Tell me about what they do there-do you play football?"
jimmy gave an inward sigh of relief--he was certain now that she also was trying to avoid the Spanish. If
he could only steer clear of Anne Radnor's persistence for the rest of the evening, he was safe. Furthermore-
well, that chin looked better to him than every so he leaned nearer and began to tell her all about "the mountains
by old Hudson's shore," the time, the place, and the girl suddenly unfolding to him glory and romance which
he had never before thought existed there. He didn't talk of studies-he was careful not to-but dwelt at length
on Yearling Camp, and hops and football, and the prospects fora good First Class Camp. The girl listened atten-
tively, and jimmy feasted on her attractiveness to his heart's content. Once their eyes metg hers were quickly
lowered, and the red slowly mounted in her face. Then Jimmy felt that he had won, and his voice grew in earn-
estness. They quite forgot the next dance, and finally were discovered, after two dances, by a man who was
looking for his dance with Miss Tysedale. V
jimmy didn't sec her again until supper, and then he led the way to a corner where he thought they would
be safe from his cousin. But they had hardly gotten seated when Miss Radnor found them, and had her partner
bring up two more chairs. V
"Mercy, people! you'vc certainly got the disappearing habit. I've been looking all over creation for you.
But still, that's all to be expected when you started with so much in common." She turned to her partner.
"Mr, -Iefferys, you know Dorothy has spent two years in Spain, and jimmy is on Furlough from West Point,
where he has just learned Spanish." '
"Well, that is a coincidence," said Mr. Jefferys. "But can you speak it fluently? I supposed that West
Point was about like the colleges. You might learn to read a language with the help of a dictionary, but I didn't
suppose you could really carry on a conversation." I
" Do you know Spanish?" asked Langdon, slowly.
"Not a bit," said Mr. Jefferys.
" Well, we have a very thorough course at the Military Academy, with native instructors, and special atten-
tion is paid to conversation." By which it will be seen that Jimmy's spirits were more nearly normal than they
had been in some time. His listeners seemed impressed, and he resolved suddenly to play his one trump card.
"We begin very early to speak Spanish in the section room. The second week we have to take a pointer
when we are ready to recite, face the instructor, and say, "Senor, se me exige escribir el tema siguiientef' He had
turned 'to Miss Tysedale and was watching her closely. She gripped an arm of her chair nervously, then laughed
"Why-wh-wh--why, I think that's wonderful! I couldn't do that well' even." She arose suddenly.
"Mr. Langdon, you spoke of showing me how to find the North by Cassiope's Chair. I have been dying to Hnd
how to do it. Pl-please take me to see it at once!" She smiled and bowed to the other two and led the way.
jimmy followed hastily.
Miss Tysedale walked hurriedly down the path, and jimmy had to hasten to overtake her.
"Where are we going?" he asked.
" Anywhere-to get away from Anne Radnor!" said the girl.
jimmy suddenly caught her arm and, turning her about, looked into her eyes.
"Tell me, honestly and truly, do you know what it was I said in there?"
"I haven't the faintest idea! Can't you see that it has been a big case of pretending with me right along?
I don't know enough Spanish to' go shopping by myself."
Her hand lay in his and she made no effort to free it. So he put his class ring on her finger and kissed
" Now I know why I got a garnet-it goes so well with brown eyes."
Then his face broadened into the first satisfied smile since Friday.
"You know I am awfully glad, for if you had answered me just once it would have called my bluff.
That's all the Spanish I know, and I only know that because I specked it from saying it so often."
Ujimmyl You are horrid!" she smiled in spite of herself.
"Not a bit. It was just a case of who had the bigger blufT, and mine won-simply because I've had
morefexperience in the art."

When this weary old grind will be through. This boning, and drilling, and guardg
Very soon I will go off on my Furlough, And the first thing I'1l do,
And then I'l1 see my Furlough Sue. g I'1l go straight back to you,
When I go off on my Furlough.
To the land of "pipe"
We're going to hike, S
Boys, very soon, CHORU
Where our Furlough girl In the skies of june, is coming soon, our Furlough moon
Sets hearts awhirl Then you'll hear us serenade
Beneath the moon. Our pretty Furlough maid.
Come, light your skags, fill up your cups, No more P. M. E.-no chemistry-no reveille!
And as our hearts fill too, Come, boys, sing, and let your voices ring out cheers
We'll sing " Our Class of 191 1, here's a health to you." For our Furlough.
It won't be long before we're gone--
Join in and swell this song.
Come, fill your glasses, fellows, and stand up in a row,
To singing sentimentally we're going for to go:
In the Army there's sobriety, promotions very slow,
So we'll sing our reminiscences of Benny Havens, oh! l
Oh! Benny Havens, oh! Oh! Benny Havens, oh!
We'1l sing' our reminiscences of Benny Havens, oh!
To our kind old Alma Mater, our rockbound highland home,
We'1l cast back many a fond regret as o'er life's sea we roam,
Until on our last battlefield the lights of Heaven shall glow,
We'l1 never fail to.drink to her and Benny Havens, oh !---CHO.
May the Army be augmented, may promotion be less slow,
May our country in the hour of need be ready for the foe!
May we find a soldier's resting place beneath a soldier's blow,
With room enough beside our graves for Benny Havens, oh!-CHO.

Come, fill your cups up, fellows, and stand in a row,
Our Furlough time is drawing near, but once, before we go,
Let us toast our good old highland home and Benny Havens, oh!
Then with heart so light and prospects bright we'll go on our Furlough!
To 1911's Furlough, oh, let your glasses How!
Fill to the top, drain every drop--a health to our Furlough!
Let's toast the moon-V-our Furlough moon-oh, may her soft white beams
Shine brightly on the pictures we have seen in our pipe dreams!
May each man find his Furlough time a cloudless sky of blue,
And may all care and trouble go OH on a Furlough, too !--CHO.

With my little Furlough maiden,

With now and then a show.

When we're on Furlough.
