T high noon, june 12th, 1896, we sailed through the golden gate which had been our goal for three long, wearisome years, and found ourselves on the pacitic sea of First-classdoni. How wonderful it seemed! Our -feelings were similar to those of the all-confident Plebe Qbefore he has entered the west sally-port? and we had that large, elevating sensation of conscious greatness and 81 hat which a newly-fledged corporal ex- periences when he sprouts hisuglittering pin feathers. The hampering barracks could not. long contain us, and, after due delibera- tion, it was decided by the authorities to take us into Camp Hooker, where we might have all out doors to move about in. - 1 But how soon do our fondest anticipations come to naught! We all too quickly found that there was more pain than pleasure in the dazzling charm, and, like moths with singed wings, we settled down to the commonplace. Although we rode in the Hrst-class carriage, we found that its wheels turned in the same old rut. Q Of course camp had its diversions, but all through the game, where we pre- ferred hearts, we found our hands full of spades, and enough holes were dug in Fort C1int:on,'fi11ed up, and redug, to make, if continuous,.a short cut to the Antipodes, and always there was the pontoon bridge-of sighs. ' Our morning rides and their attendant elocutionary treats were the inspira- tion which threw us headlong into the capture of Cro' Nest and Long Pond, and far into the night the nioping owl and cooingidove might have been heard T4 complaining of the unwarranted intrusion into the tangled and sacred depths of their pipe-line home. Grim malaria besieged the line of the Hudson, and this being its strongest point, was longest invested, strong men were laid low and forced to spend whole weeks in the Hotel Dieu, and enough quinine was absorbed to make the welkin ring. The camp was like all first-class camps-foggy reveilles, boiling and baking drills Qthe cooking schoolj, concerts, hops, spoons, and astronomy I In all probably more was lost than gained, for sad havoc was played with hearts, Xmas leaves, class rings, and ff previous engagements." ' September Ist was looked for longingly, for we knew it would be " the beginning of the end," and finally after long, wasting days, packed full of drills and imprecations Qfor storm clouds never lowered even on the artificial horizonj, the color line drew on apace Qa slow, short pacej, and with it we welcomed back the prodigal sons of '98. Then came H those gray old walls " again, the short, but, oh I so pleasant evenings among the oracles of the Dialectic, our chiefipastime foot-ball, and our greatest bug-bear engineering and its drawing. The course from September to january was one awful strain, much stress being brought to bear upon us, especially bythe Ordnance and Engineering departments, but although the usual number of fatalists took Time by the fore-, lock and packed their telescope boxes and shawl straps, their work had to be undone. We are still intact, although the Duke's marital relations are sadly strained. 1 Old '97 was ushered in with fitting ceremonies, and in its first few months we learned to fight great paper battles, successful alike for offense or defense, and every man can now write afive-thousand-word lecture in two hours and a half without suffering from writer's cramp. Unfortunately our Bible presentation came upon 797 days until June, and we were unable to carry out to anywhere near its entirety a programme which in dramatic, operatic, forensic, and terpsichorean effects would have surpassed any- thing yet attempted-by us. As it was, the corps was gorged on peanuts and toothpicks. On April 27th, the birthdayiof our national hero, occurred the great Grant Day parade in New York.

I i I i l P l From our present standpoint we look forward-not over months, but over days, days which seem to drag. But everything has an end. And so fwe judge entirely by the fact that others have graduatedj will this course, a course looked forward to with glorious antici- pations by the embryo cadet, despised and wearisome to the realizer, but always reniernbered with just pride and deep feeling by its graduates for its bitter-sweet and very severity. And what a staff 'twill be on which to leanr in after yearsg the lower quarter emblemizing the miseries of the fourth-class year-crushed into the ground, bearing not only its proportional strain, but also the weight of superincumbent years, the third, second, and most of the first-class years with pressure, slightly lessening on the way up, and finally the whole topped off with the golden head- the climax, capped for us on that day which will be the happiest of our exist- ence-Iune I 1th, 189 7.

If, then, after having passed through this year of vast accumulations of knowledge, some of us discover that we do not know all things, we at least have the rather empty but pleasant satisfaction of having forgotten more than most men ever learn. The time of furlough might be regarded as belonging to the period of which we write. Strictly speaking, however, its history is one of individuals rather than that of a class, it was a period of unconformity and of ununiformity, and of which each man has his own little story-not to tell. The joy with which a second-classman takes up his light burdens in Sep- tember could scarcely be detected by the most .delicate indicator of that blithe- some feeling, nor can he make himself seem happy even by the most powerful means of self-induction. Her letter, at that season, may come by every mail, but at best there is a long time between the mails. So the interim is full of misery for him who erstwhile was a furloughman. But if he be so fortunate as to get those dainty missives two 'and three at a time, he may be as happy and smile as unceasingly as does our own fragile Mclilouskey. The time of great transition, from furloughmen to normal second-classmen--the most sober of all the sober-passed painfully away, and carried with it two good members from the already much thinned ranks of '98. We number in the fifties now, only half of the numerous but humble band that did the country such good service in the days of Camp Cullum. 30 Equation " E " soon came round to us in all the sublimity with which it has met and conquered so many ffgoats " in days gone by. After some few weak attempts at doubting, and a consequent heav loss in t th b y en s, every ody began to express on all occasions the most implicit faith and belief in that old formula. All of us procured a ff physical image " and fell down and worshiped it. How- ever, it was given us to understand that we were at liberty to doubt, if we so desired, that no inquisition would be practiced. Of course, it is not necessary to state that we found 't ' ' ' 1 to be a very wise plan to believe. Our course in s not much perturbed by such demoralizing occurrences as lectures ' officers of the Mechanics wa J day did not have to strain their melodious voices by turning out the second class. Ah! Winkleman, Winkleman, you were often looked for in vain, and when you did come, it was to wind up the guard-house clock. Yet all your faults and neglect must be overlooked, because you are surely one of those men so kind and just that 'twould be impossible for you to give us more than we deserve, or-as much. ' Everybody knows about the " red bound book." Should there be any one ignorant of our career in 'f Wave Motion," let him seek out little Davie Stone, and hear the latest and most impartial version of our trials and shipwreck among the breakers of that turbulent f d k sounds. B. Enochs coul sea o ar ness, misunderstanding, and hideous d also tell a graphic and realistic story, but although B. is the soul of honor, he is excitable on this one subject and might not be as cool as Stone. Phil, we are about to bid you farewell, a long farewell. We hope with all the malice of our natures that you will be the same to all succeeding second classes, and that you will find them to your liking. Nevertheless, in saying good-bye to this dread old enemy, we must not overlook the good he has done us. If it had not been for Phil, would Jimmie Jordan ever have changed his role of a " gold-brick sharp " and "green-goods man" into that of a 'fhop fiend " pure and simple? If it had not been for Phil, would Baby Meade have ever Hspooned " from the cemetery gate to the south guard house, as he now bi-weekly does? 'Hammond and Snickle-Fritz same?

On making our debut in Chemistry, we were informed that on account of various and sundry hidden traits of our character, not known to ourselves, and, of course, to no one else, we were destined not to furnish any very celebrated exponents of the black art from amongst our number. This we might have assumed 'f a priori " without any risk of disappointment, if Bradford had not been with us. During the course his questions in the Black Art lecture-room have shown him to be as deeply versed in the lore of this uncanny subject as those of johnson, J. C., have proved him to be in that of ff Wave Motion." All praise is due to these profound thinkers and sage questioners. The former has by mental analysis and comparison dis- covered an animal which can walk, run, swim, and Hy all at the same time, the latter has shown that Fresnel was all wrong, and has by his questions so often delayed the game that the sweet notes of the bugle became of more frequency in that section than did the recitations. Since we have turned our attention to geology, mineralogy, electricity, magnetism, common rocks, practical electricity, et cetera, the study of chemistry proper has been discontinued by all but one. He pursues the subject through the mere love which he has cultivated for it, and probably cannot be induced to abandon the pursuit until june comes with relief. jerry, he from windy and far-off Kansas, clings to Bloxam, heat, and the essen- tial principles with overweening fondness. In writing of the prominent 'figures in the domain of chemistry, great injustice would be done if T. Merrill's achievements were not mentioned. In Physiology and Hygiene Tommy loomed up as a potent factor, head and shoulders above all other aspirants. It was after Physiology had been forgotten, though, that T. gained most notoriety. At eleven o'clock he used to march and then countermarch half his section, also at twelve he would do likewise with the other half. After a while the section became so proficient that he did not deem his presence necessary to their rnanoeuvres, so he remained at home until sent for. When we look back upon the journey through the chemical department, we cannot help but remark that it was over a rocky road, especially the last half, yet it was through a new and not uninteresting country, peopled by strange mammals and rare birds, and abounding in rich minerals and precious stones. This year's experience in the Drawing Academy gave our artists an oppor- Unitl' t0 mike 21 display of talent which may stand unsurpassed forever. "Ike 32 Walton's Man " will always be remembered as something sufficiently unsym- metrical to do honor to a dime museum, " D. Berry's Goat " was SO true to his master that the critics saw and made a note of the resemblance, and Ceed A, Read constructed in perspective a pile of blocks in which he made use of some of the most unique, " mCaSley," 4' worm-eaten," 'fwobbly " lines that ever graced a sheet of Whatman's. He " took it away." All these beautiful pictures, together with many others of equal celebrity, and by masters equally famous, will be unveiled for public inspection some time in june, before the twelfth of the month, so there is no need of further comment on them. In leaving the Draw- ing Academy we can say in all truth and earnestness that no second class ever did or ever will pass through it more smoothly and with less of the unpleasant than have we, but in saying this, we attribute only a small part of the credit to ourselves, for most of it belongs elsewhere. We have written our history as one of Academic duty, because our ti1ne was spent in the performance of such duty. The idle moments were fewer and farther between than the name second class "snap " seems to warrant, besides, what occurred at those times was mostly private experieiice. The doings of the class in foot-ball and other matters of general interest are recorded elsewhere in THE HOWITZER. Our second year's riding has been full of interest to us for more than one reason. We gloried in the possession of our own special horses. Nearly every one seemed to cultivate a love for his horse solely from a feeling of proprietor- ship. ff Mary " Ridenour dearly loved old Braddock, he would smile, oh! so fondly, as he sat in the tan bark and watched Braddock's heels fly past on each side of his head. On the plain Hammond would try to induce Keyes to leave the herd in order that they might enjoy each other's companionship alone. Read seemed to think that it would be a very nice thing if he could take old Wheeler down to see the neat little village of Highland Falls. Mifty Martin was the only one who proved false to his charge. He deserted Sykes on the ground that the latter insisted on riding 4' English," something that Mifty could not tolerate from any horse. One marked change in the riding of this year from that of last was that Pete Boggs did not deem it obligatory nor very graceful to dismount, bald spot inverted, every time he turned a corner in the hall. As for charming the gallery, nobody could hope to compete with William Nye Butner. Bill and his horse Conily were both of such impetuous natures that they had to be sepa- 33 .

Immedi- ately upon this separa 10 t' n interest began to lag, and a falling off in the gallery attendance wasnoticed. Maybe a second-classman has less to look forward to in the immediate future than Qther members of the corps. june brings us no furlough this time, nor are uve going to graduate, nor is it so gleeful a transition from second to first-class 'O man 35 ir is from "p1ebe', to "yearling." Yet how many of us will be in danger of being H found " when we become first-classmen ? Will we not ff feel Safer than we ever felt before H? Whose June will the days soon be reckoned to? Indeed, if our joy this June is not the wild, exuberant feeling of a furloughman, it is far deeper, and its calmness makes us feel so sure that it is genuine and will last and grow in strength as time wears on. With this little bit of self-comfort- ing, we are ready to say good-bye to our second-class days and all that pertains to them. It is a glad good-bye. Not because the course has been unpleasant, for this year has been the best of the three, but because we expect the next year to be yet better, and because we know the year after will be so very much the best. V Whatever may be our sorrows and whatever may be our joys, we are ready now and always to sing, as we used to do when thinking of home and furlough, To the Corps that knows no equal, To the famous Black and Gray, To the Army and the Stars and Stripes We'll e'er allegiance pay. But our first love shall be always, In our hearts the deepest seat, For the crimson band of union In the class of ninety-eight. -'Ill - . , -f XX . V 'ui , . View X F a elif te if 34 CONRAD S.

""' 'EAVY is the responsibility that rests upon the shoulders of him whose duty it is to record the deeds of great men. Truly the histo- rian feels the weight of that responsibility as he takes his pen in hand to write of the doings of ,99, and of the fortunes and misfortunes which have befallen the class since last the tale was told. The seasons have rolled around but once since the sons of ,QQ were plebes, but the experiences of that one short year have been many and various-boys we were then, men we are now-plebeans then, yearlings now. The days of the first year of West Point life-days which, it seemed then, would never reach an end,- now hold but a small place in the memories of most of us. The interest in the present, the anticipation of the future have all but obliterated the bitterness. of those weeks of trial and tribulation. Plebe camp is to our minds now nothing more than a hazy nightmare of years ago 3 plebe January is remembered scarcely more distinctly, and the whole year fades into a very dim background when we think of the pleasures that have been ours since the moment we broke ranks after seeing '96 graduated. ' r The graduation week of I896 was a happy one for us plebes. But one oral examination fell to our lot, so we had occasion to appear before the frowning Academic Board in our new dress coats and our year-old brace but a short 1no- ment, in which we gave the visitors examples of "French as she is spoken fat West Pointjfl The examinations over, we set out to enjoy the week of festivities HS best fl P16136 Can, and we succeeded well. We began Uspooning " at once. " Bobby " Howze mistook a lot of plebes for first-classmen the afternoon of the sea- coast battery drill, and introduced the whole crowd to the Board of Visitors. The 40 plebes didn't mind it a bit, and H Bobby " never knew that we were just 4' coming out." The night of june 1 1th found us in the hop-room e1z11zcz.vse,- we always did like '96, so we consented to dance at their last cadet function. We all filled our cards with the names of femmes we never had heard of before, and some of the men felt afterward as though they might have gotten along about as well if they never had met those fair ones. But we had a good time that night. Who but the new-born yearling can know of the exultation a fellow feels when the upper classman, whom he has admired and dreaded for a whole year, comes up, taps him familiarly on the shoulder, calls him by name, leaving off the hated " Mr." and tells him that his U next partner is just over in the corner, come along and meet her." Who but the plebe, coming out of a year's seclusion from society life, can know the full joy of whirling through thescrowd of dancers with his arm encircling a dainty feminine waist the night of Graduation Hop? Life, which for 'us had been so long painted in very heavy washes of 9' Payne's Gray," began to take on more roseate hues, we debutants decided that existence at West Point might not be so bad after all, and when the orderly sounded the recall at 1 A. M., june 12th, every '99er escorted his lady home, feeling that his first taste of the brightness of cadet life had been very sweet indeed. Next day we began to live in true yearling style. Deep as was our admira- tion for '96, not one of us experienced a single regret when we saw Bob Powers receive his sheepskin from the hand of General Miles, for with the graduation of the last man came our transition from plebeans to yearlings. The march back from the exercises that closed the career of the Class of '96 seemed all too long, for every man was eager to hear the U makes" read out, and many were dreaming already of the gold lace corporal chevrons. -But, alas! the hopes of more than half the class were dashed to earth. First came the list of captains, then lieuten- ants, then the sergeants, but there the orders ended. We broke ranks, and ,QQ had nobody to put into the tank. However, that disappointment did not cast a shadow on the happiness of the day. W'e gave our class yell with so much life that we all lost our voices at once 5 we shook hands with all those '98 men against whom we'd nursed so many grievances, we called each upper classman "old boy," and tried to appear to the crowds that thronged the area as if we had just become first-classrnen instead of only yearlings, in fact, we simply reaeleri in the new atmosphere, and each assured the other that if only the "corps" had been made he would be supremely-happy. 41 argngi Salas: f-sas-sings,.Q-fag:-.ffr s:-.','. 'H ' A ' W V ' -:eel-:-i ii 'Y'-' Then came camp, and a right jolly camp it was, too, not one of the boister- ous riotoug Camps that we read about, but a peaceful, easy-going, pleasurable sort of Camp 5 no Wild excitement, but just enough spice to keep everybody Qegpeciauv the Htacsub wondering what was to happen next. Reveille on the Fourth of Tulv found that old blunderbuss across No. 2 spiked with a rat-tail file, and to make assurance doubly sure the bore was plugged with turf, and other such ammu- nitign, so we were obliged to content ourselves with being awakened bythe band, with no cannon accompaniment. The plebes went on guard for the first time that day, and many were the ghosts and spirits that hovered about them during their midnight tour. And so things went. Dicky chased Ray J. B. down " B " Com. pany street one night, but failed to catch him. The Farmer had better luck on another occasion when he tackled Sep Whittaker hard and held him fast till the corporal of the guard came to put " Sep " in arrest. At exactly half-past ten one fair evening every water-pail in camp took to itself wings, flew a few feet in the air, and then fell in the company street with a loud bang. Of course nobody was responsible for such a manifestly supernatural occurrence, but the ofncer in charge ordered twelve yearlings to be put on guard to walk post in the company streets to " keep the peace." And in spite of all these little functions that were going on all the time, twenty men bloomed out with corporal chevrons about August ist, the first f' makes " of '99. Camp Hooker sped by all too quickly, there were the charming P. M. E. drills, the tennis tournament, in which H Vif" Brown won 4' single " honors for '99, the hops and concerts where the spoonoids held forth, and many other occupations that made the time pass as if on wings, so that the ' Color Line" was upon us before we were ready for it. The entertainment proved a grand success, and then but one more day of yearling camp was left for us. On that day the furloughmen returned, so that on Saturday, the 29th, the entire battalion marched to barracks, and Camp Hooker was but a happy memory in the minds of the yearlings. The class mourns the loss of many men since the academic year begun. Four men succumbed to the terrors of the examination in Analytics last November, Seven more Save UP after January, while three were turned back for a year. IH other respects fortune has smiled upon us. We developed some astonishing horsemanship in the short time that we went to the riding hall, notwithstanding the fact that Cf1PtalU Jim informed each platoon every day that it had the 42 " poorest lot of riders in the class." The record of the in-door gymnasium meet in March shows a goodly number of first and second prizes to '99's credit, and taking the whole year into consideration, 1896-97 has been successful for us. But our good time is yet to come. A few short weeks and we shall be leaving on furlough-that three months of enchantment to which every plebe and yearling looks forward with the most eager anticipations, and upon which every second- classman looks back with the happiest memories. So, with a clean record behind us and with high ambitions for the remainder of our career in the Academy, we look forward to our short vacation with light hearts and close our history as we do our ff battery meetings," with the lines, .

L ARLY one june morning-early for H Cits " -a little party of pros- lg pective 4' new cadets " were discussing whether it would be the " Century Class," " Tenty-ten," or H Naughty naught," and as a l -0 C subject of minor importance some few here and there were making plans as to how they were going to run this institutiong one little runt asking if little men were ever made first captains. We received our uniforms at the Cadet Store, and were " dragged H over to the Tenth Division and taken in tow by four Cadet Sergeants and a Cadet Lieutenant. After a very pleasant introduction in the H office," we decided to wait awhile before we would control the destinies of the corps, and by supper we were firmly convinced that competent hands were already at the helm.

With what expectancy we awaited the " sole " stirring yell f'New Cadets turn out promptly l" How swiftly passed those little hours in which we held coni- munion with Nature in one of her various forms, under the gentle leadership of those yearling drillmasters.

We were rather surprised with our reception. We imme- diately installed ourselves as housekeepers for the battalion, with now and then a little interference from the " tacs."

And it was indeed a hard one to answer. ' The team that had won such a reputation in its games with Harvard, Yale, and Brown had practically disappeared, and of the old familiar faces there appeared but' three: Connor, Savage, and Romeyn 5 so that the statement that our team was entirely new is not far out of the way. However, it is not the custom at West Point to allow difficulties to daunt us, and the fact so many places remained to be filled seemed only to increase the interest felt by both the candidates for the team and the corps in general. That the interest in foot-ball has greatly increased in the past two years is evidenced by the crowds of men who watched even the preliminary practice and runs, and as time went on many of the H rooters " exhibited a profoulld knowledge of the game. V Practice was formally opened this year on August 31st, when Lieutenant King was with us for a few days, it was then remarked that we were particularly fortunate both as regards quantity and quality of men to choose from. Of old favorites and stand-bys, the faces of MQCO1-nack and Foy were missed, and it was conceded that a great effort would have to be made in order to ill their PlaCCS acceptably. Practice went vigorously on during September, directed by Graves, King, Lott, and Nolan, ably seconded by Connor, and the men began to separate into groups according to their relative superiority. 60 Our first game was played on October 3d with Tufts College resulting in 3 score of 27--O in favor of West Point. U On October Ist the A. O. A. A. succeeded in securing Geo. P. Dyer as Coach for the remainder of the season, as it was found that Graves could not be secured. This game seemed to indicate that our team would be at least as strong as that of '95. On October roth we were to have played Trinity College, but October 8th word was received that they would be unable to play on account of injuries to players received during a game with Harvard, October 7th. No efforts were spared to obtain another team, but they proved unavailing, and thus the schedule was one- game short. On October' 17th we met Princeton and were beaten by Ir-o 5 this game was a disappointment to many, as it was defensive throughout, but it proved a very instructive one. October 24th we met Union, and in a very weak game on their part, defeated them, 44-o. There were no special points of interest in this game ex- cept that Gilmore was tried at tackle for the first time, and gave promise of becoming a worthy successor of Foy. Abernethy also gave us a little exhibition showing how a guard should run with the ball after catching a kick-off. On October 3ISt we met Yale and were defeated 16-2 in a hard fought game. In this game West Point proved herself as strong as Yale in all respects except in blocking kicks-every gain of,any consequence made by Yale being made on blocked kicks. just why this was will never be fully agreed upon, for during the remainder of the season our line showed up as strong as that of any team that came here. We had the misfortune to lose Humphrey in this game, and also for the rest of the season on account of the injury then received, and his loss was severely felt, though after changing Williams back to guard, with Scott at the other, our centre proved, as in former times, practically im- pregnable. Of the Wesleyan game much need not be said-simply that the result was a tie, 12-12-and that it taught us the lesson that it is not possible to play good fO0t-ball with a disunited team. As one of the officers very truly rellraflied, that Was the only game played here for a long time that was a reproach to us, - - - -' t fall and while we may have our own opinions as to the primary CQUSC, let U5 HO to profit by the experience, and let us avoid a repetition of such an affair. 61 Pagging over the game of the scrubs for the moment only, we come to the Cr-Oxvning glory of the season-the defeat we gave Brown. It was under- stood fully by both teams that fully aware that the result of this game would practically fix our position for the year NO effort Wag spared to get the team in proper condition, and in this con- nection it may be stated that as long as the memory of the game lives at West Point so long will the corps say their splendid work for the glory of the corpsf' Those two men, ably assisted by Mr. Dyer, practically made a new team out of our men in five days, filling them with hope and infusing their own energy and life throughout not only the this was to be a battle royal, and every man was 'fall honor and credit to Lott and Stout for team but the whole corps. Who could watch the practice and hear Stout's voice above all other sounds as he hauled every man over the coals who was not in- stantly and constantly on the jump? 'Who could hear him and not feel a thrill pass through him, and whether he be player or rooter, oflicer or cadet, not feel a wild desire to get into the game and eat somebody up ? We will not attempt to describe the game, but will content ourselves by saying that we won by a score of 8-6, and that there was not a sane man in the corps for at least an hour after the last whistle sounded. And now we will make a few comments on some of the players, and give a prophecy or two about the future of the team. . First we will take up Connor's case. Who ever thinks of Katy Connor now without feeling a desire to pound him on the back and otherwise bruise him up, to show him how much we think of him? From the beginning of the Tufts game to the end of the Brown his record is one of brilliant playing. On the offense, his end-running has not been equalled by any back seen here since Thorne played 3 and as to defense, it has been the universal opinion of judges of foot-ball that he stands head and shoulders above any player seen at West Point this year. His work as a captain speaks for itself, for the men were a unit in declaring their confidence in his judgment, and one and all gave him their hearty support. Hurrah for Connor, boys, and see to it that you support Nesbitt 85 loyally next year as Connor was supported this. Pop Savage fulfilled our expectations as an end, and, in conjunction with Scales, made the right end of our line a veritable stone wall-and so Yale found it, and after a few yards had been lost in fruitless efforts to penetrate it they gave it up as a bad job and turned their attention elsewhere. 62 ana yea plai Poii wou year ning life c them out a devel thatc ! Acade equal such tc takesf not iir and pl this yeg to 2 gl Smithei men to all of tl Scales and Nesbitt are two men who proved towers of strength on both Offense and defense. As line-buckers we will not admit any one that played here this year as their superiors. Church has probably not to this day succeeded in ex- plaining how it was that he didn't play horse with that much talked-of West Point tackle. Any of zu could explain if we were only asked, and our reply would be that he had met his match in everything but experience, and that next year the two men would in all probability have their positions reversed. In run- ning with the ball these two men show an absolute disregard for the safety of life or limb of the men seeking to tackle them, and I have yet to see either of them downed without a gain. No account of the team, however brief and limited, would be complete with- out a tribute to the great work done by Hall. For an absolutely new man his development has been wonderful. His play in the last game was far superior to that of his opponent, and not even McCormack got into more plays. A few words must be added about the scrubs, the hardest worked men in the Academy, and the men who apparently get the least credit. To them is due an equal share with the first team of the glory of the season, for-without them no such team could have been developed. The amount of spirit and sand that it takes for men to get out on the plain day after day and be pounded around, is not imagined by any man who has not been there, but yet our men came out and played with more spirit at the end of the season, when all hope of making this year's team was gone, than they did at the start, when all things were possible to a good man. Their organization was splendid, and much credit is due to Smither for his good work in perfecting it. There will bean abundance of good men to choose from next year, and there will be the advantage of having nearly all of them men of experience. 63 Z, EAM.

G. S. N. Y., on Decoration Day brought to a close a very interesting base-ball season. Although the team did not taste of the sweets of victory as often as the most ardent supporters might have wished, yet the games were always ex- citing, and seldom was victory assured to the winning team until the last man was out in the last inning. In spite of the fact that the '96 base-ball team played a somewhat losing game, it was certainly the equal of any of its predecessors, and A. G. Lott, '96, for the second season captain of the team, deserves great credit for its develop- ment. Owing to the lack of time for practice, the team not having time for even a single practice game during the week, we have no base-ball coach, and the entire work of training and systematizing the play falls upon the captain's shoulders. But Lott was just the man for the place and succeeded in turning out a strong team. About thirty candidates started training, including six members of the pre- vious year's team, and from these the players were selected. Finding no pitcher who could exactly fill the bill, Lott himself went from behind the bat into the box, and certainly acquitted himself very creditably. His control, which was almost perfect, aided by good curves and .excellent judgment, made him a very effective pitcher. His former position behind the bat was exceptionally well filled by L. Brown, jr., '99, whose throwing to bases was always a feature of the b h graduation of Stout '9', was success- game. Second base, made vacant y t e D , J fully held down by Cowan, '99, while Kromer, '99, and Goodale, '96, divided the time at third. These men, with the " veterans," completed the team. 55 The season was opened on April 18th by a very close and exciting game with Lafayette. Each side had scored but one run up to the ninth inning when a mis- understanding of the g let the visitors score the winning run. This was a fine showing for the opening game of the season as Lafayette proved themselves no easy meat for some of the round rules with respect to a ball thrown into the crowd Strongest college teams in the country. The following Saturday we defeated Rutgers in a well-played game by a score of I3-4. May 2d saw a very exciting game with the University of Vermont. This was probably the most brilliant game of the season, "grand stand" stops and plays following each other in rapid succession. Both teams alternated in the lead, but Vermont finally landed the game with a score of 9-8. Two weeks later Trinity defeated us by a score of Io-6, and Lehigh did likewise on May 23d, by a score of 7-I. Our game with the Seventh Regiment was a very fair one. The day, Deco- ration Day, was made the occasion of a large excursion of Seventh Regiment people, and thousands of spectators cheered the many brilliant plays of the game. Both pitchers were very effective and the teams played almost perfectly, each nine making but two errors, one of which on each side was excusable. The visitors finally won the game, 4-1, but not 'without a gallant struggle on the part of the -cadets. Hobart was billed for May zd, but they canceled the date, and the. game with Vermont was secured instead. The management is to be congratulated on getting so good a team on such short notice. Union abandoned athletics for the season and so canceled her game for May 9th, which 'date themanagement was unable to fill, so only six games were played. In conclusion, it may be worthy of notice that our bat-ting and fielding aver- ages were .253 and .872 respectively, while those of the visiting teams were .250 and .8So. This partially justifies us in the belief that the team was out of luck. Below is appended a table of the season's games: April 18th, West Point, I. Lafayette, 2. April 25th, West Point, 13.

' the changes since Uwe were cadets." Athletics have made no enemies. We never hear an objection based on "I never heard of it before." The most recent introduction is polo, and it has not come to die. Once in a game, once having played, another disciple is added, and the game is more firmly established as not only one of the not too many modes of recreation of the corps, but as a mode of instruction. The credit of introducing and establishing the game is due almost entirely to the efforts and encouragement of First Lieutenant Robert L. I-Iowze, Sixth Cavalry, who not only furnished the materials-mallets, balls, copies of rules, etc.-but by his mediation obtained the horses, and was always ready and willing to lend his presence and instruction to the games. In this he was ably seconded by Lieutenants Cassatt and Smedburg, of the Fourth Cavalry, and to these two ofncers is due the entire credit for the continuance of the game after the departure of Lieutenant I-Iowze. The game is now but two years old, the Class of '96 being the first to play it. Probably three-fourths of them enjoyed its advantages, and have taken with them to their several posts a knowledge and love for it which cannot but hasten the general introduction of this most excellent sport throughout the army. And, indeed, this is the ultimate object of polo as taught and played here. "In the army thefC'S sobriety," but- there should also be something else. Polo is pecu- liarly adapted and fascinating to the military man. To the most excellent exercise 68 l I it adds an absorbing interest, and cultivates a seat and horsemanship hardly attain- able in any other manner. The Class of '97 have been even more favorably and largely attracted to the game, hardly a man who has not played, and certainly no player has failed to become its advocate. Many have become quite expert-all have a proficiency which would pull them through a West Point examination. The greatest dis- advantage of polo as played here is the lack of suitable horses and the consequent restrictions upon the gait. This has, however, been partially neutralized by the readiness and willingness with which the best horses for the purpose have been placed at the disposal of the cadets by Captain Parker. And the fact that the horses are always saddled and ready on the field is a great convenience to the players, whose time is only too limited. Nearly every officer on the post has, in a measure, contributed to the success of this new athletic venture, and the game is destined to endure. Each class will become more and more interested, and in time, to play polo will not be the least first-class joy to which the aspiring second-classman will look forward. And it might not be too much to hope that a few years will see regular polo ponies provided at the Academy, with all the necessary arrangements to sup- port a regular team. Polo may yet rank with the base-ball and foot-ball of the Academy of which every graduate, old or young, is now so proud. 6 69 W I - Q I L I ' 1 5 F I ,ff..,,'-fn. I J..

In the running broad jump Cheney, '97, who had done excellent work in practice, sprained his ankle at the take-off on his first trial which threw him out of both this event and the 120-yard hurdle, in 'which he had also shown excellent form. The event was won by Dallam, '96, with 19 feet II inches. This, too, in a steady downpour of rain. The running high jump was won by Abbot, ,97. Neither he nor Murphy, '97, were out at 5 feet 42 inches, but as it gave the class 1st and 2d it was thought best to stop and the remainder of the games were postponed till the fol- lowing day. The Ilth was bright and cloudless, though a trifle cool for best performance. The 220-yard dash was one of the most hotly-contested races ever run at West Point, and Shelton, '96, was declared winner by the judges, Connor, '97, second. Time, 23 2-5 seconds. In no event was more improvement shown over last year than in throwing the hammer. Berry, A. P. '96, beat his previous record by I5 feet, winning with 93 feet. The others were not far behind, and we expect to see a record of at least roo feet established in the near future. This event is one that scarcely any one has tried before coming here. The pole vault was won by Oakes, '97, with 9 feet 6 inches to his credit. He took Cheney's place in the 120-yard hurdle race. The standing broad jump was won by Abbot, ,Q7, with 9 feet IIM inches, breaking his previous record of 9 feet row inches. While this is not generally included in the list of out-door events in inter-collegiate games, we are forced to have it here since, owing to a lack of time for training, we cannot have 880-yard and mile runs. Dallam, '96, as always, while here, won the shot-put with 39 feet. The 440-yard run, closing the meet, our longest and most trying race, was won by McCormack, 797. It was a race from the word go, and they all came into the homestretch in a bunch, but McCornack gamely forged to the front and won the day for ,97, 72 y flnfboor Elthletics. O the casual newspaper reader, it may seem that our athletic successes are limited almost entirely to those of the out-door variety. He reads in the fall of our foot-ball games, and again in the spring of our base-ball games, and of our track and field sports. But little does he know of the inside workings of this institution with respect to physical development, of the hours spent in work and exercise In fact, on almost any winter afternoon our complete and finely equipped gymnasium presents a very lively appearance Cadets from ey ery class may be found there exercising and practicing on all the machines, and often acquiring a very high degree of piofi ctency in gymnastic work The results of this work and perseverance on the part of the cadets appear each year at the " Annual In door Meet, held gener ally, about the middle of March in the gy mnasium Here it is that the improye ment which has been worked for manifests itself, and ey en the most inexperienced spectator cannot fail to notice it Athletic records always suffer, while each year gymnastic feats of greater difficulty are performed with a greater degree of perfection This year, the In door Meet, the third of the series, occurred on the ey enmg of Saturday, March I3tl'l As heretofore, it w as under the auspices of the Army Officers Athletic Association w 1th a cadet committee ln charge of the meeting The athletic ey ents w ere governed by the rules common to such contests, while for the machine events special rules were adopted To assist the Judges, two exercises, which each contestant was required to perform were selected by the committee, assisted by Mr koehler After this, the contestant could perform W' . .

In this way a fair comparison could be made between the different contestants. Probably the most noteworthy performance of the evening was the standing high jump of Abbot, '97, who established a new record for this event of 4 feet IIZ inches. This record falls but a few inches short of the World's record for the event, and in all probability it will be some time before it is broken here. Barlow, '97, equaled the record of 2 2-5 seconds for the 2o-yard dash, while Heintzelman, '99, duplicated his last year's performance of clearing 6 feet 8 inches in the fence vault. New records were also established for the pole climb- ing and rope climbing contests and for the potato race, Glade, 1900, setting the figures in the two first-named events at 6 seconds and 9 seconds respectively, and Heintzelman, '99, those for the last named at 34 4-5 seconds. Not less successful were the gymnastic events. - Never before was such all- around form displayed, and never before were the decisions of the judges so hard to make. I-n nearly every case the prescribed exercises were faultlesslyiexecuted, while the " voluntaries " were creditable in the extreme both in selection and in execution. The all-around work of Perkins, IQOO, and of Foster, '99, deserves special. mention as being strictly first-class. . l - The exhibitions, though lacking the added interest due to close competition, were among the best executed and best received events of the evening. Maginnis and E. H. Martin, '98, engaged in an exceedingly clever boxing. bout, which was highly appreciated by the spectators. W. E. Gillmore, IQOO, gave a remark- able exhibition of strength, lifting full-grown men as if they were infants. But the most popular exhibition of the evening was the tumbling of Abbot and Workizer, '97, and E. H. Humphrey, 799. In these men the U. S. M. A. can boast of as fine a trio of tumblers as are ordinarily to be found among pro- fessionals. Their exhibition displayed remarkable suppleness and agility, the result of the hardest practice. . , The only class event of the evening was the tug-of-war, and the greatest interest had been taken in preparation by the teams of the different classes. The teams of '98 and '97 won the preliminary heats from '99 and r9oo respectively, leaving them to face each other in the final struggle. Amidst the most intense excitement, the '97 team pulled the '98 team over the line, the time taken, 1.24, being the longest since these meets wereinaugurated, just before the final heat of the tug-of-war, Captain Gordon, in behalf of 74 ,,..4:u1gp,, - , i r K 3 i 5 x I 5 i s i 1 1 9 Q r f v I i 2 F I i 1 I 4 f Q I 1 a I i H 1 s I T v 1 5 ,A 3 l 4 ,gl -' gaeuio2K"f , 1551 -FFF? , ff-rj Y 5 "'9' ,.

Great Fletcher never treads in buskins here, But greater " Buck 'l Johnston doth here in socks appear. seems strange to be looking back over the history of so famous an institution as the United States Military Academy and to observe the great changes that Time, Science, and Culture can produce. Between the years 1880 and rgoo, cadets at the Academy knew little more than the length of their own noses. The subtle and untrained powers of electricity were to them but objects of awe and wonder. Their institution was based on a system of mathematics and memory. They studied equations until it seemed that they proved they had proved nothing. In the early dawn of the age fy' exparzbzzefzf, the age of pnzrfire-tlie first half of the twentieth century, when such men as Edison, Tesla, Roentgen, and others, had opened the gates of knowledge to the whole world-the United States Military Academy seemed to awake like Rip Yan Winkle, as it were, from a lethargic stupor. It was one of those balmy September afternoons, the leaves of the trees made old " Cro' Nest " look like a huge Oriental rug in the light of the sinking sun 3 all the air a solemn stillness held, like the calm that precedes the tempest. In one of the historic rooms of the old cadet barracks, where more than one great man has planted the seeds of his career, are three cadets. One is slouching on the bed smoking a huge pipe, another, with his feet cocked on the radiator, cap Clown over his eyes, is whistling a popular air, while the third is reading some old volumes of Bill Nye, having the laugh all to himself. The first is a distant rela- 88 tion of the great Tesla, who lived some time in the nineteenth second is a great grandson of the famous Roentgen, who lived about the same time. The third is a direct descendant of a deceased officer century. The i of the United States army. His name IS Johnston. His great-grandfather was renowned for the in- vention of an instrument known as the Buckometer. He was also famous for his system of revolving wheels, which is said to be very complicated and intricate. "I S355 Buck," began Tesla, blOWiDg a large ring of smoke to the ceiling and rising from his couch, "what's this joke the cadets used to have on your great-grandfather about a Buckometer P" Buck smiled one of his sickly smiles and remained silent. ff Let Buck alone, Tesla, he's thinking," said Roetgen. " Oh, saw off, idiot! I'm going to jolly Buck if I want to." " Now, men, I want you to be serious with me for a moment," began Buck, in a far-away manner. " I have a new scheme for collecting sound and-7" "I'll be fudged if I ever thought you were such a crank, Buck," said Roentgen, who had heard of Buckls schemes before. " Crank! I-Ie's no crank, for the simple reason that you can't turn him," laughed Tesla. ff Then he's a rusty crank." "I surely won't be turned from my purpose, whether I'm rusty or not," said Buck with decision. f' I'1l ask you again will you listen to my scheme P" Tesla and Roentgen bowed resignedly, each braced himself in his chair, gave vent to a deep groan and said, " Go on." "Well, fellows, I have an apparatus-not a Buckometer," said Buck, with a tremor, f' which consists of certain electrical arrangements which I have stored up my chimney, and the secret of their construction remains with me. To cut the story short, I claim to be able to collect the sound waves of the past, so that what was uttered centuries ago can be heard to-day." " Pretty good, old man !-but I can't see the policeman until-" "I don't give a ' billy-be-whooped ' whether you laugh or not," said the indefatigable and irrepressible Buck. Tesla gave a sickly smile. Buck continued: "I'll set the apparatus working to-morrow, and you can judge for your- if We beg leave. to call the readerls attention to the fact that this is an expurgated edition.-Eff. 89 selves. My basis of operation rests on the fact that sound travels in waves, and so long as there is a medium in which it can travel the waves continue." ff How about your resistance?" asked Tesla, who had recently been reading Michie on the origin of light and sound. H Well, I asrzzzzze that there is no resistance in space, and that the medium is of such a character as r1'11rp5f to transfer energy without absorbing any. Remem- ber, I assznzze this. I may fail in my experiment, you know." " Are you any relation to Fresnel?" asked Roentgen. ff We'll work it to-morrow night, meanwhile, let us smoke and B. S. over it," said Buck, not noticing Roentgen's remark. The morrow came. Buck, Tesla, and Roentgen all prepared to test the latest feat of electrical science. The vast resources of the chimney produced wires, batteries, motors, phonographs, and all manner and form of electrical apparatus. "Now, fellows," began the abstruse Buck, "I'll tell you my plans. I'1n going to attach to the huge dynamo at Niagara Falls a cable which is connected to a piece of best soft iron reaching far into the bowels of the earth. I will by this means, and in a manner which I will explain later, create a peculiar, inde- Enable status of electrical equilibrium on the exterior and interior of the earth whereby sound-waves will be concentrated and focused at the funnel of a pow- erful phonograph which I will carry up in my flying-machine to a height of three or four miles. You two men go over and get your machines, fly over to my room at eleven o'clock, and we will be away before midnight. Be careful that the lac doesn't hive you, for if he does our goose is cooked." There was a regulation in the black book, as a modification of the old para- graph of the nineteenth century, that " no cadet shall keep a dog, cat, flying- machine, wife, or other animal in his room on penalty of expulsion." Soon the trio was prepared, though they set out with many vague suspicions. But the old instinct born in the blood of their ancestors that fmfhizzg is z'u1pos.vz'6lc seemed to guide them onward. Presently a light flutter and a voice was heard outside the window. 't All right," and they were off like three huge birds in the still of the night. Newburg was passed-fields, meadows, towns, and cities flitted by in the distance like passing phantoms. Buffalo was reached, hnally Niagara. Then all necessary connections were hurriedly made, the phonograph attached go to lh' react icillll Koen IZYS abou Mari thry that . i voicw time Say, ing Dic Dia HCC Blli H10 to the huge dynamo, and upward they circled until a lieiu-ht of four miles was D reached. A ringing noise is heard in the phonographh ffjust as I calculated from my assumptions. I worked this out mathemat- ically, mind you. This I call wonderful," ejaculated Buck' if what time is it, Roentgen ?" I xr - . . "just 1.30 P. M., replied Roentgen, using one of his great-grandIather's rays to see the sun through the earth in order to make an observation, ff Listen ! By johnny cakes !

So did our common ancestors Hrst err. All due to weak woman disbelieving that potatoes grew on trees.

It sounds like the singing we get in the Dialectic," ejaculated Roentgen. " Fools l That's Nero singing while Rome burns. Now you've busted con- nection and will have to drop it and go to modern times," retorted the Numidian Buck. But the meddling Roentgen happened to touch a wrong button, and then the most horrible, agonizing din and ,discord that human voice is capable of creating QI burst in on their ears. With a shriek of agony Tesla dropped his tube and broke a piece of his wing.

" Wife, it is not meet that I should tarry here smoking and drinking with you, but I will gird up my loins and hie me to the hop-room, and there engage in social pleasures, dancing and making merry with the ladies. 3. " For is it not written that thou shalt beard the lioness in her den P" 4. And ff Nick" wept and spake as follows, for " Nickw dearly loved his wife, 5. ULO, Seaborn, though the ' Com.' loveth a ' spoonoid,' yet think thou not that he shall make you a captain of his guard because thou hiest thyself to the hop-room. 6. " The ' Com.' knoweth a freak when he seeth one." 7. And Seaborn waxed exceeding wroth at his wife and seized four shoes and threw them one after another at ff Nick," and wounded him so that he lay as one dead. 8. And behold, after Seaborn had done this he arrayed himself in all manner of line linen, 9. And anointed his head with oil and bay rum and unctuous substances coagulated, ' io. And placed upon his person incense and perfume. II. And, having done this, he passed out of his home and WCM forth to the l1Op-room. 97 1 2. And lo. when he came into the court of the great " Com." he gazed up at the stars and the full moon, and the wheels in his head buzzed much. 15 -Xnd he leaped and disported himself in the air like a young goat, and Q. . remarked, saying unto himself, 14. H Lo. am I not a fine man? Behold, I will enter the hop-room and I will dance and make merry. 15. ff And the -ftflllllltil' will be sore amazed and ask what manner of man is this that dances so divinely and looketh so like a god ?,' 16. And Seaborn's wave-surface vibrated so intensely and expanded so greatly that 17. Lo, his cap was lifted clean up. 18. And when Seaborn had come unto the hop-room he put on a sweetsmile and entered. 19. And when he had entered he found there many strange people dancing and disporting themselves to the music of the tabor and the harp. 20. And Seaborn looked about, and beholding a small boy whom he knew, the son of a doctor, said, 21. " Son, what dance might this be P" 22. And the small boy answered him lightly, saying, " Behold, it might be the 99th, but it 'ain't.' " 23. And Seaborn grew exceeding wroth and said, 24. ff Frank, mockest thou my white hairs? Behold, the bears will come out of the wood and devour thee." 25. But the small boy laughed him to scorn, and ran into the dressing-room to write upon the blackboard. 26. And behold, for a long season did Seaborn tarry in the halls, looking upon the goodly women. 27. And about the eleventh hour he saith to himself, 28. " Lo, I am not enjoying myself hugely." 29. Now it came to pass that there was among the multitude one " Boom," he of the " greaser " family, a low-down cuss. 30. And " Boom," beholding Seaborn standing at the door, saith to himself, 31- " LO, I will work a ' grind' upon this man and make sport of him for myself and my fellows." 98 32. And having called his fellows about him he showeth them ajQw1:11g S-tt. 1 in in the corner, and the femme was not goodly to look upon, 8 33- And H Boom H spake unto his audience Saying, " Behold it is not meet u 1 7 that this ancient virgin should not dance and make merry. 34. " Lo, I will go unto Seaborn and say unto him, ' Brother, wantest thou to dance? Behold, I will take thee to a beautiful woman, who is a most excellent dancer.' " 35. And his fellow-men laughed aloud and said, " Lo, it is a good ' grind 3' thou art worthy to be in the hrst section." 36. And when "Boom" had said this he straightway sought out Seaborn, and told him of this beautifulfemme. ' 37. And Seaborn said, ff Brother, verily thou art a true friend of mine. Lo I should like much to meet her and to dance with her." i 38. And f' Boom " led Seaborn unto the femme. 39. But when Seaborn saw her his heart smote against his ribs, and he would fain have run, but he durst not. 4o. And " Boom " left.him with her. 41. And when " Sebe " saw they were alone he said unto the femme, " Dost thou dance P" 42. And thefemme smiled so much that, behold ! the enamel on her cheeks cracked, and she replied, "Yes, I fain would dance, how sweet of you." 43. And when she had arisen Seaborn lay hold of her, and they commenced. 44. And forthwith thefemme leaped into the air about four cubits. 45. Then did Seaborn take a new hold, and this time he held her down, and forthwith they set out down the hall. 46. And thefezfzzzze leaped and kicked and struggled like a young heifer, and the multitude fled from before them. 47. And when they had gone around twice, Seaborn, being well nigh ex- hausted, saith unto her, 'f Let us walk out this dance," and unto himself, " Lord, how my leg hath been pulled." 48. And when the music had ceased he led her to her seat in the corner, and said, " Lo, I go to seek thee a new partner. Behold, I shall soon return." 49. But he forthwith got him his cap and fled from the hop-room, saying, 'fVengeance is mine! Lo, I will beat that 'greaser' Willlill HU inch of his life." 99 5o. And when he had come to the sally-port he stood in the dark with a brick in each hand. 51. And in about an hour the 4' greaser " appeared, returning from the hop. 52. And when he had come opposite Seaborn, Seaborn let drive a brick, but the ff greaser " was a nimble brute and dodged, and the brick did him no harm, and being fleet of foot, he easily escaped. 53. And when Seaborn found he could not catch the 'fgreaser" he saith unto himself, " Lo, I will return to my house and tell my troubles to my wife." 54. And when he had reached the inside of his house, behold, his wife had recovered from her swoon, and putting on a sweater had gone forth, Seaborn knew not where, with a strange man, one Pearce, F. A. 55. And Seaborn's heart was sore within him, and he lay upon his bed gnashing his teeth both in rage and sorrow. 56. And on the morrow Seaborn was sore in every joint from his labors the night before, and he had a grievous pain in his head. 57. Then said he unto himself, 4' Lo, I will enter the hospital this day, and forget my troubles eating and drinking with my fellow-men." 58. But when he came into the hospital, behold, the doctor, knowing him of old, saith unto him, f' Thou dead beat! get thee hence. Thinkest thou that thou canst pull my leg P" 59. And Seaborn was sore amazed and grieved much. 6o. But, lo I in the meantime the 4' Com.," having heard how he laid for the ff greaser " in the dark night, calleth him before him and cusseth him out, and causeth him to put on his armor and walk in the court. or. And Seaborn was awarded many tours for these things which he had done, insomuch that, even to this day, he walketh the immense court of the Great " Com." on each and every Saturday. l IOO' 'Ciba Eompon. fDompon IS a Spanish word meaning to no! "boot-Zz'ck." The poem was suggested by the peculiar practice Whlch cadets have of rolling their own cigarettes out of Lone jack tobacco I. Roll, roll, 1151 scag, fo!! vfozmd and rozmd, Mihoaf a pause, wifhozgf a sozmd, S0 rolls away WW kara'-eafffzea' cash. T his good "Lone fadef' besz' in fha land, Follows iize motion of WW hand, u For some masifollow and same commafzd, Tlzoagiz all ffefafffz Z0 ash. Thus sang the " greaser " at his work O'er his open tobacco box, While o'er his features spread a smirk As rapidly the scag he made, And soon between his lips it laid. With motions quick the box he locks, And hid beneath a pile of socksg I stood and watched in deepest awe This task so magical to me, A man so deft I never saw, His like I never hope to seeg IOI Amid his smoke in the mellow light Unconsciously my soul took fright And soared aloft from body free. 2 Rafi, roll, 7151 sczzg, mad sfiek ZWOZL ffzsf, WMU' now is jirsf will soon be Zrzsf, What' now is high will soon be low Yhe plebe beeomes Me fivfsz' clfzssmmz, Yhe gem! be specs cmd high dofh sfczvzd, Le! him me glofjf keep who amz, ,Tis ever Mus :md so. Thus rang this ditty in my ear As on and onward without fear My soul pursued its lonely flight Into the dark and rainy night, And entered into the hospital door That 4' Rock of Ages " of the corps. What form is this that lies like dead, This man with shaven bullet-head, This freak who on his back doth lay And idles away each livelong day? 'Tis Gilbert, as I should have known By his Carmikellian groan. And near him lies his wife, " old Sleuth The blankets hide his slouch uncouth. Whose cot is this that lies so bare? Where is the man this couch should shale P Alas ! alack, life's not all smiles, To duty gone hath Seaborn Chiles. But haste away, I must be gone, That silvery light portends the dawn. IO2 Roll, roll, 1191 seag, ro!! round and fax, 7 he hilfefz soon will he a eaf. The ea! decline and pass away And hash we'!Z have fhaz' vefjf day, Thasyozzfh speeds on fo old age gray, And Zfe is blended wifh deeay As all Veizafu fo clay. Again I'm speeding through the night, With quick'ning breath and footstep light What form is this that rises high And seems to pierce the very sky? This shapeless mass of rock and stone That stands, unguarded and alone. Pelasgian masonry, rude, ungraced, No architect its plan e'er traced. 'Tis the Academic, quick let me haste, Too oft within have I been encased. But e'en as past its Walls I flew, I heard an echo I so Well knew- Yes, Mr. Brady, that Will do." And now old Barracks looms upi near, I entered quick its halls so dear. The first div. abode of Pearce, P. 3 A dashing cavalier is he- A freak who'd better dash out his brain, No one would lose, but all would gain 3 And Miller, C., his freakish wife With quarrels oft their house is rife. There's Smither, too, that lordly man, Who apeth so Napoleon 3 And Mandie Fasset, sweet pretty maid, Is a fat old hussy-a lazy jade. Pat Murphy-he, the Fenian bold, Who lives with Morgan, stern and cold. IO3 And Dickybird of singing fame, With parrot phiz and sense the same. Hoss Conklin, he the rabid freak, Methinks his head hath sprung a leak. Katie Connor, that foot-ball ram, Whom all do call the " Great I Am." And now to the top I quickly Hee To take a squint at johnson, B. Ah, Buck ! within thy breast Burns the hot fever of unrest. Thine to do and thine to make, Do give us a rest for heaven's sake. Poet, warrior, inventor great, Barber, blacksmith, all first-rate 5 Tailor, lawyer, runs a three-ball shop, Is cotillon leader at 'every hop. There's Carmichael, known to all the nation As deeply skilled in disputation, Who can prove a horse no quadruped, And that a man walks on his head. And, last of all, there's Abernethy, Who thinks he's most infernally mathy. -And now I've seen them every one, So quickly from the div. I run. Roll, roll, Wg! seag, and QZLZ'L'kZj!, foo. 70112-eafs yew! and hz'!z'e1zs mew Ihzrieff Spzwges' bzlg hash k7ZZ7-E. S0 do we seffeeeh and cries Ze! auf, When lie becomes ez baffle ffozef, For all wus! perish wifhozel doubf, hz fhe mighzjf hash of Zyfe. And now l'm in the second div. Where Roberts and McCormack live. IO4 oid Bobby with his round haid head, ' Filled with stuff as dense as lead. McCornack, he a lazy goat, Cranium so light 'twould almost float. Fergy and Apple live here, too, And help to swell the freakish crew. Of Gilbert and Sleuth I won't say more, For heaven knows they're a deuced bore. But ah 1 here's Collins, with voice so loud 'Tis always heard above the crowd 5 Talking much, but little saying, I-Ie keepeth up his infernal braying. Harold Cloke with his monkey chatter, ff Mark him, Steward, for lost gray-matter. Ah, noble Loco ! blest of heaven, Thou art our only 'fszbczjf-sezfezzf' Quick let me from this gang vamoose Lest " Windy " Collins should break loose The third div. opens on my sight, I mount the stair with footstep light. ff By johnny-cake I" what's this I see? Rufus Longan, oh, dear me ! Now cackle N Rufe " just like a hen, And when you're through, why do it again Sethy Millikin, that childish kid, Whose mouth flaps like a locker-lid. Popie, his lazy, corpulent wife, Who eats and sleeps away his life. B. I. Arnold, with hawk-like beak, Thou art another ill-favored freak. . Ah, yes, within this old third div. The author he himself doth live. And now again my flight 1'11 take Before the fourth div. freaks are awake. Little Chick, the crazy loon, 105 Who specs and counts the days till june, And with him lies old Pearce, F. A., Who much upon his bed doth lay And knoweth little what to say Upon examination day. Cheney and Dorey, dear pretty girls, With baby cheeks and home-made curls, Rehearsing in sleep what to say When they go forth on Saturday. Old jo Hannah, with freakish mien, You can thank your stars if ne'er you've Rickety Barlow-well, perhaps it's best For imagination to supply the rest. Andy Moses and Roberts, C. D., Two infant kids so small and wee. And now, with fleeting footstep light, Unto the fifth div. I take my flight, 'But e'en as through the night I go, I can hear the " greaser " soft and low. Rolf, 1'o!!, 1191 scrzgg S0072 2.71 1151 face 7Wo11 7IIZlSL' fake My fidiffl-7ZC'd place, E 'e11 as Ike 11igh!-shz'1f1' has 1'fs book A7Zli with Me oloihes-bag 175 1'e!czz'z'o11, So 6716731 1111111 has his Sf6?llZ'07Z, Hz's 020111 p1z1'!z'c11!c11' ll'ZJOC!?fZ.07Z, As 1ies1'1'11onf 111 !Qfe's book. And now, within the fifth div. walls I glide along its silent halls. Here Harper lives, the chief of freaks, A youthful kid with beardless cheeks, His voice is tuned to higher C, And soundeth like a calliopeg And Hall, C. G., that boning cuss IO6 SCCII Who o'er a tenth makes such a fuss, And Mitchell,.he who never speaks, Is another of these 5th div, freaks. But Lawrence Miller completes the list, A little runt whom I nearly missed, The sixth div.-ah ! whom see I there? Shunk Brady-well, I must declare. Hoot awa' Brute and snore away, W I cannot longer with you stay, Old Duke Bridges, whose plastic mind Always is a day behind, Valentine, who has much to say, But little meaning doth convey, Frank McCoy, the ladies' pet, Whose face hath taken a permanent set Of dignity and studied ease, And gives its smiles as though to please. Enough of this, so let me hence, On the seventh div. I now commence. There's Tiger Roach, whose speckled mug Is colored rich as Turkish rug, Who bones and specs the live-long day That he may earn his monthly pay 5 And little doth he have to say Save in a meek and backward way. Ah ! Buckey's up and running a light On engineering to get insight. Old 4' Pop " Savage, whose laziness Oft doth rake him in a fuss. Coyote Wolf, who does his best To get ahead of all the rest, And Jonathan Oakes, I hate to say, Was hurt as usual yesterday. Virginia Helms, with voice so shrill, The very thought gives one a chill. 1o7 lf 1 , , A ., I 1 1 J 1 l Il 2 Q, Q 1 1 l, if il Y I 1 I l il It .5 -I R l I 1 it ,I l b 1 I !

There's Freddy Altstaetter with guileless smile, A little of which lasts a long while, And Benny Koehler, sad, pensive nun, VVho on the sly is a sofz Wfcz gun. jimmy Munro, with his big hard head, And jakey Moore, who's almost dead, And last of all there's Welch, you know, Who in all he does is very slow. The eighth div. freaks are yet asleep, So at them now I'll take a peep. There's Raymond, Bots, and Hoggarty Day, And of them all I could lots say, But time demands I haste away And leave them on their backs to lay. Poor freaks, with nary a grain of wit, And understanding-not a bit. And now, like an eagle in the sky, Past sally-port I swiftly fly, But above the patter ofthe rain There comes the " greaser's " sad refrain- Roll, roll, ny! soag, ihe iime jies ovz, Epouleftes we soon will don And kemffs will ZUZDZIZQI oozmd. The min if comes, Me Vain if goes, The Hizcison Yozfkwoffd oczlmbf flows, And we will 6241! Ziozefefzavzzps oloihes Ami send fha oi!! azfozmd. The ninth div. now reveals the sight Of Albert Bowley in his might. A loud-mouthed youth done up so Brown By little maid in distant town. IO8 There's Silly'Asburn, who smiles so much Methinks his face would need a crutch, Sirmeyer, that alliaceous man From the wilds of Michigan. This crew of three 'tis hard to beat, But now the tenth div. gang I'll meet, The tenth div., home of the Szzryz'!es, Owns goat Frissell, who has his flights And doth make hideous all the nights As he performs his various rites. And then there's Fiske, of freaks the Prince, Who oft the div. paints various tints3 Methinks 'twere well if he'd try a bit To obtain a little wit. There's Henry Abbot from Hillsdale, Whose proper place is a county jail. In Seaborn Chiles 'tis hard to End More feebleness in one man's mind. There's Worky, who fore'er will lug An empty head and Teutonic mug. There's Daddy Sarratt from Gafney town, Destined for a circus clowng "And though I grant he hath much wit, He's very shy in using it." And Conley who, to hear him brawl, One would think he knew it all, A truthful man would never deign To say he e'er appeared half sane. But with the " greaser," whose uncouth song Hath led me through this freakish throng, A man who can more lies invent, As though his stock would ne'er be spent. Unwillingly I'll leave the crew And sadly bid you my adieu- Sadly! ah, yes, but emi with gleeg ' 109 Too long have I had youfreaks to see, Too long have I had to endure the bore- Happy am I 'tis almost o'er. Too long the idiosyncrasies of Fate Have made this eagle with swallows mate A man like I with freaks like you. Thank goodness-for here's my last adieu. , v, v uf 4 X fr And now, dear class, from this nonsense I hope no one will take offense. You know the spirit-'tis all in fun 3 XVe love you, each and every one, Freaks though you are, yet freaks make th Her axis crank by freaks is twirled. X e world, For four long years we've marched abreast, Side by side we've maxed and fessedg Our loyal hearts have stood the test, And now we gladly claim our rest. A few short days and we part forever, The ties that bind us then must sever 5 Friends will part with stifled tears, Friends we'll never see for years. Perhaps among our goodly throng Some one suffers a supposed wrong, Hearts are bitter and feelings rasp, Hands are parted that well might clasp- Don't hesitate to cast pride away, Every hand must meet on our parting day. And now, dear class, with tearful eyes We bid you our loving last good-byes 3 Upon thee, dearest ff Ninety-seven," May the richest blessings fall from heaven.
