Mining and Metallurgy at this institution and whose likeness occurs opposite this page, has followed a career which, to say the least, has been a highly checkered one. It comes to the lot of few men indeed to lead a life so frought with interest and so replete with passages of big things done. We write only a sketch of the outline of his life's work to date, and leave to you the pleasing task of filling in the intercises and expanding the general topics as btst fitted to yourselves. To make you to understand and fully appreciate the beauty and accomplishment of this long life is a task for which we have neither the space nor the ability and our hope is that you might have the opportunity, as has been given to some of us. of sometime pursuing his courses and obtaining therefrom somewhat of the essence of that life, somewhat of the spirit of things done which it breathes and somewhat of the energy and inspiration which must have been his during those years of labor. His preparation for this active career was obtained at Sheffield College. Yale's scientific school, where he received the degree of Ph. B.. and latter at Dartmouth College from which institution he carried away a degree of A. M. His first actual work in the field was commenced when he entered the New York Medical College as assistant chemist in 1852. From this point his course was an ever rising one and we find him climbing with rapid strides to chemist and mineralogist of the New Jersey Zinc Co., and then to the same position on the staff of the United States Pacific Railroad survey corps, in the year ‘55: author and editor of the reports to the government of that survey: editor of a mining magazine and journal of geology from '58 to '60: mining engineer to the Japanese government where he was head of the mining department in the National College during the the years '62 and '63: professor of geology and mining in the College of California in '66: commissioner from California to the Paris Exposition. '67: editor of reports of U. S. commissioner to Paris 67-'71 ; chief of scientific staff of San Domingo commission '71 : commissioner from Conn, to the International Exposition. Philadelphia, and chairman classification committee at that exposition ‘71-'77: commissioner to Vienna Exposition '73: U. S. commissioner to Paris World's Fair '78 and secretary scientific commission: mining engineer ‘79-‘95 and since that date he has been Territorial geologist and director of School of yjr 1Mines for Arizona. During his life he has contributed largely to the literature of mining, geology and engineering and has come to be recognized as standard authority in this field and to him and his work you will find countless references in the technical literature of the day. Not the least of his work here has been the collection and selection of our museum which is today largely due to his untiring effort and painstaking direction, the finest collection of Arizona and southwestern relics and specimens of natural history which is to be found in the U. S., and invaluable to the University. It is a goodly thing to have labored long and to have labored hard but to have worked through a long life on things which are worth the while is certainly the greatest satisfaction. To look back over a field of operations in which one can see big things growing and existing and to be able to feel that these things are in some respect the product of ones' own handiwork must of necessity be a source of intense satisfaction. of most keen joy. It will be given to perhaps none of us to do so many big. practical things, to have a part in and be parcel of such a large share of the world's real work, howsoever much our hearts may yearn for such and howsoever hard our heads and hands may labor to that end. Yet the association here in our daily walks with those who have known these things is a goodly thing: goodly for mind and heart as well. To be given the privilege of daily intercourse with and daily talks of rich and valuable experience of the past and present is a circumstance of our lives highly to be valued. And these things we have of him of whom we write and it is from this source our gratitude springs. Is it not a goodly record indeed? Small wonder that we hold him in prime reverence and close tucked in the softest corner of our kindest regard.cJitorialsTHE “BURRO” UNIVERSITY . Or' . ARIZONA . ANNUAI.

CL- Y PARKER BUSINESS AGR.EDITORIALS HIS has been an epoch-rraking year in the history of the University, a year of new things attempted and good things accomplished: a year in which another and a tetter spirit has ruled the highway of progress: a year in which we have learned much of grace, much of fellowship. rr.uch of facts and principles of our several courses and much of the genius of that silent master, success. It has been a year, in which the hot blood of contention has oft coursed through our veins and has as often been surmounted by the flush of triumph: in which we have learned many things outside the text-book and within the book of life, namely the modest joy of work well done on the athletic field and in literary work outside the class-room. The monthly has had a happy re- vision and growth, the gridiron has sprung up. been heartily welcomed and has done a splendid work within our midst. The societies have offered not only occasions of exceeding pleasure but means of great benefit to all included in their membership. In a word, this year has disclosed more of talent and more of latent ability lying dormant among us and which we wot not of. than any within our recollection. And so it is without apology that we offer this first of a long line of U. of A. Annuals for your inspection and we hope enjoyment, believing that we are keeping within the spirit of the times. We realize that mistakes are liable to have been made arising from lack of precedent and difference of opinions and tastes or mayhaps inexperience. If of the former we ask of you your forbearance, if from the other sources, let us hope for greater things next time. o THERE are a few points in regard to this publication which we wish to present. It is no more than natural that subsequent issues will be in some degree influenced by precedent and for this reason we have been particular in the draft and form which this book presents. It is first of all understood that the paramount object of such a work is to give■ to the student a compass of all the items, happenings and matters of student interest, in a compact and tasteful form which will preserve to him the record of a years' work here, and so it is essentially a student work for the students. In selecting this cover we ha c. we believe, gotten such a one as will combine the elements of artistic taste and good service and we hope the same will be kept uniform hereafter. We have also adopted the plan of each year giving place in this volume for a short sketch of the life of some person who has been especially prominent in the making of this college and to this end we present in this volume an abstract of the life of Prof. W. P. Blake. It is, we think, a pleasing thing and altogether fitting that we should have such records of these prominent men preserved to us. v THE selection of a name for this publication was a knotty problem for some time. The desire was to obtain a characteristic name, one characteristic of the country and of the people, one original and distinctive. We believe that the result of our study on the subject was a happy one as The "Burro" certainly fills the role in distinctiveness and local sug- gestion, and I am not so sure that some of the characteristics of our little friend will not do well to copy. He’s not much on looks but on work he beats anything of his size. He melts to Christian treatment but kicks, and hard, when you impose on him. His wants are doubtless many but his needs are few and for patience Job was naught. So there you are and there he is and there let him ever stay. WE wish to take this opportunity of publicly expressing our deepest gratitude to those who have helped us in this work. It has been a task we assure you by no means easy, but one nevertheless which has been made far less difficult by the ready assistance we have had in every department and one out of which we have all derived somewhat of pleasure. We congratulate you who have contributed of your services, upon the character of work you have done and wish to thank you for your gracious and willing response to calls for help on our part. We feel more than satisfied in saying that whatever good this work might contain is to be attributed to the student body as it is in its entirity a student work, and we sincerely hope in after issues it will so remain.BR1EP HISTORY UNIVERSITY OP ARIZONA BY ." ARK WALKr.M. tt. S- 9T ris not generally known that the first attempt at founding a University for Arizona was made in 1864. at which time Governor John M. Goodwin, in his message to the first Arizona legislature, recommended that the legislators take steps to enable the Territory to accept the gift of 30.000 acres of public lands which the "Morrell bill." passed by Congress in 1862, made available to each State. However, in the rush of business the members omitted to accept this grant of land, but they did provide for the establishment of a University to be managed by a Board of Regents consisting of the Governor, the three Judges of the Supreme Court and three resident property holders of the Territory, the latter to be appointed by the two Houses of the Assembly in joint session. The Board of Regents were to select a site and locate the University any time after one year and prior to January 1st 1866. The Legislature chose Gilbert W. Hopkins. William Walter and Richard McCormick as the three elective Regents. During 1865, however, Mr. Hopkins was killed by the Apaches and the second Legislature appcinted Daniel H. Stickneyin his place. There is no record of any meeting ever having been held by this board nor any action taken, and for nearly twenty years the matter lay dormant. In 1881 Congress made a grant of 72.000 acres of land to Arizona and the same to other Territories to support a University or institution of learning. In 1882 the SOUTH IIALL AM »MOr KCIUMSM . Superintendent of Public Instruction for Arizona made a selection of these lands and in 1883 we read in the message of Governor Tritle to the twelfth assembly: "The question of the establishment of a Territorial University has been agitated somewhat through the Territory. There being no money in any fund out of which the expen- -------------------------- ses of such an establishment could be paid and properly officered. I would consider any action on the premises as unwise at this time.” Accordingly nothing was done till 1885 when the thirteenth Legislature passed a bill appropriating $25,000 to found a University at or a miKTCM «»r CA»rr , catalix near Tucson. It is an interesting historical fact that the people of Tucson did not set out to get a University. They wanted the capitol located at Tucson and failing in this. Mr. C. C. Stevens, a member of the Council from Pima county, introduced the aforementioned bill. The measure passed the council without trouble but met with violent opposition in the House. Fortunately for Tucson, however. Mr. S. M. Franklin, now one of our most prominent lawyers, and at that time recently graduated from the University of California, appreciated the opportunity, immediately championed the cause and after heroic efforts culminating in a magnificent speech before the crowded House suc--------------------?------------------ceeded in effect- ing the passage of the bill. On March 12. 1885. the Governor sent to the Council for confirmation the names of the first Boardof Regents. Of this number, however. Mr. J. $. Mansfeld of Tucson was the only one who took interest enough in the matter to qualify and it was only through the efforts of Mr. Mansfeld and Chas. M. Strauss that others were appointed who did qualify. On November 27th. 1886. J. S. Mansfeld. M. G. Sam-aniego. J. S. Wood and Chas. M. Strauss met in Tucson. organized as a Board and elected John C.

Six professors and two instructors constituted the faculty. Professor Gulley was in charge of the institution as a whole and the work of instruction was conducted mainly along the lines of an agricultural collego. A one-year preparatory course was instituted with Professor Hall as principal. Aboutthe first of the year the two cottages designed for professors' residences were completed and occupied by Professors Gulley and Colling-wood while other members of the faculty roomed and boarded in University Hall. Later the the mill annex wasRah! rah ! rah!! Zip! boom! bah ! U. A.. U. A.. Rah! rah! rah!! In the second year the enrollment was thirty-eight, of which number five were students from outside towns. . The faculty was increased to eight professors and four instructors. While the work of the University was broadened a little, especially in mining, yet there was an effort to confine the instruction within the limits of an agricultural college. It was, however, found necessary to add a second year to the preparatory course. During this period the cottage for the president was completed. At the beginning of the third year Dr. Comstock was placed in charge of the whole institution; the registration was fifty-seven, out of which number seven were from other places. The faculty was decreased to seven professors and two instructors. The futility of attempting to confine the course of instruction within such narrow limits had now become apparent and much more latitude was given to the students in choosing their work. In the fourth year the registration was forty-seven, of whom eleven came from outside towns. The faculty was increased to nine professors and one instructor. During this year provision was. made for some of the young men to room in University Hall while the young ladies roomed in Cottage No. I. in which the dining hall was situated. At the close of the year three persons received the degree of Bachelor of Science. The Board of Regents at this time designated sage green and silver as the University colors and a college pin in the form of a cactus leaf in green enamel, bearing the letters U. A. in silver. was chosen. During the fifth year the Reverend Howard Bill-man occupied the President’s chair and made vigorous I'd Ml DCXTK ME.Il-KNC efforts to extend the influence of the University with the result that the registration reached one hundred, of which number forty-five were from outside towns. The faculty was enlarged to ten professors and four instructors. During this year the nan o of the literary society was changed to "Philomathian." The erect:on of the stone dormitory being delayed through lack of funds a small wooden building, afterwards called "Liberty Hall" was erected for the accommodation of male students. During this period the system of employing students in various kinds o f work about the grounds and buildings was very much extended. By this time the agricultural course was nearly a dead letter. A general or literary course had been provided ana this with the courses in the School of Mines afforded ample facilities for the needs of the times. The enrollment the sixth year reached 151, with eighty students from outside places. The faculty was made up of nine professors and five instructors, and provision for a three years' preparatory course was made. This year the stone dormitory known as "North Hall" was available for the residence of male students. At the close of the session three persons were graduated and the Alumini Association was organized. During the seventh year the enrollment reached 156. of whom seventy-five were from other towns. The faculty was enlarged to eleven professors and four instructors. President Billman resigned and M. M. Parker succeeded him. Four students were granted the degree of Bachelor of Science at the close of this year. In the eighth year the student body numbered 1 35. of which sixty-six were from outside places. The faculty consisted of ten professors and seven instructors. During this year a secret society called the “Lescha" was organized. One person was graduated at the end of the year. During the ninth year the registration reached 161, of which 76 were non residents of Tucson. The fac- DOWJt TMF DMVr. Tl'CMN I!' TIIK DSkTAXCKulty was increased to twelve professors and ten instructors. " South Hall ” was in process of construction during this session and became available for occupancy by the male students at the middle of this year. The only serious trouble in the history of the institution occurred this year, whereby ‘eighteen students left the college in rebellion against the faculty. which upheld the decision of one of the professors. The action of the rebels, although designed as hurtful, really helped the University rather than injured it. as will be noticed by the increased attendance. Four students were graduated this year. The tenth year saw the enrollment reach225. with 117 from outside taking advantage of the increased dormitory facilities. The requirements for admission to the sub-collegiate course were raised. This year “North Hall" was used for the first time as a ladies' dormitory. The faculty was made up of twelve professors and seven instructors. During this year the Cop- per Queen Mining Company gave $5,000 for the erection of the manual training shops. t The twenty-first Legislature authorized the issue of bonds to the extent of $25,000 to provide a building for the library and museum. Two fraternities, the Delta Phi and the Epsilon Pi Eta. were organized. There were four graduates. At the beginning of the eleventh year President Parker resigned and Professor F. Yale Adams was appointed acting president. The registration was 215. with 113 from other towns. The faculty remained the same in number as in the previous year. During this year a new dining hall was built, and about the close of the session was ready for use. A chapter of Theta Nu Epsilon was organized. A committee consisting of three members of the faculty, three members of the alumni and three members of the student body selected marine blue and silver as the college colors. The degrees of Bachelor of Science and of Philosophy were granted to nine persons. a at ctch or mill okovucw -A • .The twelfth year opened with Professor F. Yale Adams as full president. The registration of students amounts to 220. with 108 from outside towns. The faculty is composed of twelve professors and ten instructors. During this year Prof. James Douglass and his associates of the Copper Queen Mining Company gave $5,000 to provide a building for a gymnasium. The twenty-second Legislature appropriated $2,000 to equip the gymnasium and $5,000 to furnish the library and museum building. Two new literary socie- ties were organized, the "University Club" and the "Chrestomathcan.” the latter confining its membership to the preparatory department. (One sub-collegiate class was dropped this year.) There will be at least six graduates. In concluding this brief history thanks are expressed to President Adams. Professors Hall and Woodward. Messrs. S. M. Franklin and S. P. McCrea for information afforded the author. riWIMOI'll Kf'll'IXCW OX 1MK CAN rACULTY 3. HOWARD JUDSON HALL. A. M. Protestor o! English; Librarian 4.

A. .n. ’03- TN writing fora college annual I believe it is customary for each article to begin by saying that that particular year will go down in the history of the institution as a year of innovations. That it will mark the beginning of a new life, a broader outlook and a larger hope. Taking it for granted that the custom will be followed in this instance, I will say that one of the greatest innovations of the year, and a fitting climax to them all. is the introduction of the "Cap and Gown" the "Society Dress." the “Gala-day" attire of colleges and universities. I believe it will not be out of place to say at this point, also, that the wearing of the cap and gown has long since ceased to be a fad. It is just as much a time-honored custom as commencement, itself, and is just as much the “proper thing" on that occasion—the day of all days in the student's life—as is the "dress suit" or "full dress" at certain other social functions. There are a number of reasons why the friends of the university, and especially those intimately connected with it. should favor the custom of wearing the cap and gown: I. In the first place, besides being very inexpensive. especially since one may hire instead of buy. the graduating costume does away with the difference in dress arising from different tastes, fashions, and de- grees of wealth, and lends picturesqueness and dignity to the scene. We arc invariably moved when we witness soldiers or fraternal orders parading the streets or performing their ceremonies, because uniformity and continuity always strike the mind and awaken enthusiasm. It is hard to imagine anything more impressive than a large body of men. all in regular uniform, performing such evolutions as are required of soldiers and sailors: and it would be equally difficult to imagine anything more ludicrous than the same body of men going through the same evolutions in the various styles of clothing worn as citizens—ranging from overalls and cotton scull cap. to dress suit and high hat and without any attention given to uniformity of arrangement. One can get a fair idea of the contrast by comparing in his mind a regiment of soldiers with "Coxy's Army." If we apply this same principle to our graduating exercises we can readily sec. without a very great stretch of imagination, the value of the cap and gown. 2. In the next place, the cap and gown firmly symbolize an clement in the educational life of today that should be encouraged. Some one has truly remarked that "we are quite given to cutting loose from the past our social, religious and intellectual life." The tendency in every department is to adoptmodern ideas and methods. The word “new.' is continually recurring in connection with organizations, movements and institutions. We have the "new charity." the "new patriotism." the "new theology." the "new learning" and even the "new woman." Everywhere abounds what Dr. Bellows called "the philosophy of newness." We have no complaint to make against this tendancy. however, for it is rapidly changing and improving the conditions of mankind— it is one of the necessary factors of development in all our social, industrial and political institutions: and nowhere has this tendency been more noticed than in our college curricula, and in the character of the subjects treated by. and in the degrees conferred upon, the graduating classes. Instead of finding fault with the tendency, howevef. we are glad to know that our educational institutions are not only keeping up with the progressive movements of the time, but are actually taking the lead, as they should. On the other hand, as some one has remarked, it cannot be denied that the natural effect is to disturb a sense of the continuity and gradual evolution of our knowledge. The learning of mediaeval times is the parent of our modern education. Step by step it has advanced, "here a little and there a little, eliminating crude errors, changing astrology into astronomy, alchemy into chemistry, one theory of air and heat and electricity into another, until the knowledge of material things run to and fro throughout the earth." But our present learning has its roots, nevertheless, in the past. and it seems to the writer that instead of breaking away wholly from the customs and ideas that gave birth to and made possible our present educational life, we should show a sort of "recapitulation." as the biologist would say. by adding and retaining the useful characters which have been developed during our educational history, and which have proved their utility by their persistancy and adaptability. One of our eastern educators has said: "The graduates' costume at commencement seems to join together all the centuries of progress, to associate all scholars the world over, and to give emphasis to the universal fellowship of intellectual development It is suggestive of the source from which the large and varied results of the present have sprung. The cap and gown of the scholar at commencement is a pleasing reminder of the vast brotherhood of intellectual and moral training and the fellowship of colleges for all time." This idea of the cap and gown is found to be in harmony with the law of expression noticed in other organizations and institutions which trace their histories back to a remote past. Such organizations and institutions manifest in signs, symbols and regalia, the principles and processes that have decended from antiquity: and the benefit derived from calling attention to. and placing emphasis upon, their long course of development and successful career, can hardly be over estimated. As the old castle and cathedral awaken our interest in and call our attention to the gradual develop-ment of our political and religious institutions, so the cap ar.d gown, by a like law of association, awakens our interest in and calls our attention to the gradual development of our educational institutions and ideas. They tend to produce what Prof. Giddings calls a “consciousness of kind.' and in doing this they emphasize and strengthen the bond that binds the present to the past, making our educational life of today a part of a grand, developing whole. It is an encouraging fact that “in connection with the prevalent modernism of our bare American life, there is perpetuated a round of formularies and customs that keep us somewhat in sympathy with the mediaevalism out of which we have come." We have little enough reverence at best, so we are glad to note an increasing interest in the life of other days—in the manners and customs, the laws and institutions, the art and literature upon which our modern civilization has been built up. 3. In the third place, the cap and gown appeals to our sentiment and satisfies a demand of our nature. People, today, young and old alike, are impressed by scenic displays—something that appeals to their sentiments and awakens their interest and these things are just as legitimate in the field of education as in politics or fraternal orders, or religious ceremonies. It seems to the writer that “the mind is so constructed by the Creator that the senses, the sciences and the sentiments should cooperate in human advancement." and that we lose much from life unless we develop it as a symmetrical whole. In speaking of the unattractiveness of most of our religious services, and in making a plea for a revival of ceremonials in the services of the church, a well known clergyman says: "It is a question, indeed, whether our administration of religion may not learn something from educational usages, and conceal its barrenness by draperies, processions, music and art. and so express the religious emotions and aesthetic demands which are as much Cod-given qualities as logic or social affection. We are getting behind the creeds of the reformation why not get back of the desolation wrought in worship, architecture and ceremonialism by the puritans and clothe liberal thought and devotion in the variety and richness of expression that belongs to all the powerful emotions of our nature. We find no difficulty in patriotic demonstration. and should be equally at home in the proper embodiment of faith and knowledge." This is a tacit acknowledge that even religion, the most powerful factor in social control, is cold and barren and unattractive when robbed of these external qualities which appeal directly to the sentiments and stir the emotions: and I think we are justified in saying that, no matter what its character may be. only so far as an institution, which depends on the public for supportappeals to popular sentiment and gratifies the demands of human nature, can it expect to succeed: and that the institution that is most willing to recognize and best prepared to m.cct these demands, is the one that will live and prosper and accomplish i»s purpose. It is a clear case of natural selection, a survival of the fittest. Any institution that depends on the public both for its support and its material, would show a lack of wisdom and business ability if it did not make itself as attractive as possible, and do all in its pbwer to win public regard and create in its friends a feeling of pride and devotion. But this can be done only by taking into account the whole of man’s nature and meeting its various demands. That the cap and gown appeal strongly to the aesthetic taste cannot be doubted. The fact that they arc so universally worn, and that the largest, most prosperous and most renowned of our educational institutions are loudest in their praise would seem to be sufficient evidence that they have a practical utility, for it is hard to believe that the foremost men of our time would encourage and perpetuate the custom if it were only a dead and worthless form. 4. Again, the friends of the university should favor the adoption of the cap and gown because the action indicates to the public that the principle educational institution in the territory, the school to which the people of the territory intrust the training of their boys and girls, does not believe in the popular heresy that ‘ anything is good enough for Arizona." It is virtually saying that nothing is good enough for Arizona that is not good enough for any other section of our country: and that as it is it is the duty of each individual to be self-respecting and to honor and be guided by the rules and regulations, the customs and ideas that society has found useful and necessary in its various associations, so it is much more the duty of our educational institutions, since they have intrusted to them the transmission of a large body of our knowledge and social tradition, and the training and guidance of the boys and girls to whom each generation looks for its leaders in every department of life, to comport themselves with proper dignity and not only to place themselves in line with the best institutions in the land, but to respect and be guided by. whatever customs and methods have been found to be educationally and socially useful, and that indicate to the people that they have a proper conception of their importance and are worthy of confidence and respect.BY ORDER or THE REGENTS. fiCOHGIANA COl.TON, 'Co nIGHT was beginning to brood over the University. The rr.ain building looked grave and silent, as though resting from the toils of the day and preparing for success on the morrow. The copper twilight wrapped the cactus garden in gloom, while the flagpole, bare and gaunt, seemed to stand like a sentinel guarding the campus. Now and then a light appeared in South Hall, but most of the rooms seemed lifeless, and probably their occupants were holding kangaroo court in some back room, for occasionally there was a shout and a clash of music, showing that there were boys somewhere around. North Hall stood silent and looked as dignified as it is possible for a dormitory to look, which is'nt but half a dormitory, after all. Inside, things did not seem as calm and peaceful. Down stairs all was silent, save the creak of a rocker in the matron's room; but the upper hall echoed with a confusion of excited voices from the transom over Carrie Westfall's door. It was a girl's mass meeting. Within, the girls weresitting about the room on almost anything that could be used for a chair. Some on chain, some on the bed. while others lounged on the rugs. The chief speaker and chairman sat on the table, and all eyes were fixed on her. "You didn't know it. Amy Brigg? Dreaming your old "Marble Faun." [ suppose—Oh! Down town to dinner with aunt ? Well. I'll tell you. Its all over in University Hall. A notice right up on the bulletin board—a map of the grounds all marked in red ink. where we may go and where we mayn't; everybody can read it. penalties and all; its an insult: an insult to every one of us!" "I think its a shame that we college girls should be treated like kids." said Mary Watts. "Why don't they chaperone us to classes and have us all sit in a row. and then take us across the 'limits.' back to the dormitory after class." exclaimed another. Madge Collins was one of the leaders of this outburst. She was thoroughly disgusted with the University in general. Madge was a general favorite in school; she did not have any more knowledge than the average student, but she was bright and quick, and ever ready for fun. There was one thing that always disturbed Madge's peace, and that was the strict rules. Madge rebelled at these. "Well we will just tell the boys how things are.” she exclaimed, "just how we are shut up like prisoners. and not allowed to walk where we please, for fear we will see a boy. Why don't they build a board fence from the gate to the dining hall: then we wouldn't be tempted to look at South Hall." "Well. Madge if things are this way we shall have to stand them. I shan't rebel.” said Carrie, "while I would gladly change the condition of affairs. I don't think that any hard feelings or outbursts of anger can alter things. And telling the boys won't do any good, we're just in for it and we will have to give in." “I won't." Madge replied doggedly. "The boys can sympathize with us anyway. I don't care what you girls do. I shall tell Will all abcut it. Do as you wish but you know what I'm going to do." Miss Brown, assistant matron at the dormitory, was greatly loved by all.the girls, for she sympathized with them and entered into all their trials and fun. She was not much older than some of the students and her own ways were very girlish. "Let's appoint Carrie. Madge and Amy on a committee to go and see Miss Brown." said Emma Smith. "All right, ask her just what she thinks and tell her what we think." said Madge, rapping on the table with the ink bottle. So the meeting broke up: the girls went to their rooms, and the committee rushed to Miss Brown to get her opinion on this momentus question. "Now what shall we do Miss Brown? We want to show the authorities that we wont submit to anything so foolish, as having our limit marked off. You know just how things stand. Now do give us your opinion." they exclaimed."Why girls. I'm sure that there is nothing for you to do but submit to these rules." said Miss Brown, "besides you know that the places that are marked off on the map are places that you rarely, if ever, care to go. To be sure you cannot go to the main building, only during school hours, but why should you want to go at any other time?" "Its not that Miss Brown." Madge replied, speaking for the committee. "Its the principle of the thing, and just think, you and the matron are the only persons in this big building that can go where you please. We can't even go to the tennis court" The next morning just after drill, the boys stood before the bulletin board, listening eagerly to the boy who was reading the notice that had caused such a tumult in North Hall. As the girls came over from tho dormitory, they were greeted by. "Have you seen this: do you know what this says ?" "Well, I guess we have." "I can sympathize with you but I wouldn't stand for it" "I guess you would: what would you do?" "I'd do something: like to see myself shut up in such a way.” Will Newman was a particular friend of Madge's and it was to him that she went for a kind word when she felt that her rights were intruded upon. “Now Will, you think its awful, don't you?" "Yes. I do. Madge, and I'm sorry for you." "Yes. and we are in college, too. and right here on the campus we can’t go where we please; you wouldn't stand it, would you?" "No." ' Now that's just what I say; we mustn't stand it either; but goodness, some girls are so scarey." But talking did not mend matters, and for awhile excitement prevailed throughout the school. But gradually the subject dropped and at length it was only now and then that the "limits" were spoken of. The campus was quiet: the moon shone brightly. Now and then a breeze waved the long trailing branches of the pepper trees and caused the birds to twitter and shift their perches. At the back of the campus in the shadow of the shop, something was moving. An indistinct form at the window, followed by the sound of someone springing lightly to the ground, the soft shutting of the sash, a suppressed giggle and there hurried into the moonlight a group of girls moving quickly from shadow to shadow till they reached a thick group of trees on the main drive. "Let's rest here: my but I didn't know it was so heavy. Some one get a stick and put it through the handle, and more of us can carry it." "My goodness. I've got some on my skirt: will it wash out? Then I'll have to burn it for they'll search our rooms and if---" "Well, come on: change hands. Let's begin by the President's house: 1 don't believe that they're at home anyway." It was Madge’s determined voice that spoke andupon it and one of the guests, noticing my silence, took occasion to ask of me my feelings regarding the subject under discussion. I told him that as yet I was somewhat skeptical but would like to see and know more about spiritualism before forming an opinion. In saying this it was my intention to bring about a seance and it succeeded for as he heard my remarks the old gentleman asked the mediums for a manifestation of the spirits and powers of the air that would rid me of my unbelief. At first the mediums were very reluctant but after questioning me to considerable extent and thinking, probably, that I would prove to be an easy subject, they assented and said that if all of the party would consent to join the circle they would make an effort to hold a sitting and bring from the spirits some manifestation of their presence. So accordingly we seated ourselves about the table and prepared for what was to come. As usual the room was darkened and all prepared their minds for the experiment The medium informed me that in order to see or hear the disembodied spirits I must first bring myself to believe implicitly that such a thing could be brought about. So the seance went on and one by one those seated about the little round table were put in touch with those of the spirit land and held communion with them. As for myself. I could not hear any spirit voices nor could I feel the touch of spirit hands. But of all the circle I was the only one to whom this was denied for I was an unbeliever and it was to this fact, in all probability, that I owe my disappointment The party broke up at a late hour and we departed to our several homes. I had the good fortune to be accompanied on my way by one of the guests that earlier in the evening, had attracted me a great deal. He was an old man of imposing appearance who had come to the west when a mere boy but his parents and relatives had remained at the old home in Boston. Possessed of a magnificent mind and of an admirable command of the English language he attracted one instinctively. He had been educated for the ministry in some eastern college but the spirit of unrest that boiled in his veins gave him to know that he was not following his calling so he changed all of his plans and. strongly against the wishes of his parents, started westward. This was in the early ’60’s and he had the usual number of skirmishes with the Indians and bushwackers before he reached the Rio Grande. Here the most of his party remained while he left them and pushed on alone into Arizona where he took up the life of a prospector and miner. To give in detail all of his experiences would take much time but as he unfolded to me the history of his youth among Arizona's grand old mountains and canyons he presented an impressive picture. His six feet of strong manhood was crowned by a head of hair almost snowy in whiteness. His eyes sparkled as he told of the life and action of his younger days and dimmed as he recalled those of his comrades who had gone from him. Never before had I listened to such a speaker or to one who had such a master's power ofdescription. He became enthused with his subject and I listened in a spell. I could almost see the busy turmoil of the days when the mines were running in full blast and prosperity and lawfulness strange companions these—reigned. He tojd of the rise and fall ■of his fortunes and of his intended departure for his eastern home. Several times before this he had been on the verge of departure but he had promised his parents that he would never return until he could return with a "stake." I asked him what his prospects were at the present time and he told me that he had a mine in the eastern side of the Harqua Hala range which he was developing. He went on to explain that he had driven a tunnel into the mountain side for nearly four hundred feet and expected soon to strike the ledge which was composed of quartz bearing great gold values. I asked him to relate his story of its discovery and after a short pause he consented. He had first explained to me that the ledge- had no outcrop whatever and when 1 asked him to tell me now he knew of its Ideation he seemed rather reluctant at first but at last went on. It seems that several years ago a spiritualist had visited him at his camp on the river and tried to bring him to the mystic faith. At first he scorned the idea but finally he gave way and consented to be present at a demonstration of spiritual power. "It was." he said "such'a convincing proof" that he became a firm believer in the principles of spiritualism and came, to be so proficient in the science as to be able to hold communication with the spirit world. And so. one night, as he was out under the open sky sleeping soundly something came to him from out of the air and drew him a picture of the country where he might find enormous wealth providing he would prove faithful and wiping. and give with the picture such a vivid description that he could not fail to locate the place. All at once the phantom vanished with these words. "And after cutting through seven ledges which are of porphry and granite in alteration, if you shall still have faith you will find before you the object of your life search." The dream or vision made such an impression upon him that he arose immediately and without waiting for daylight went out and found his burros, filled his canteen with water and started out just as dawn was breaking over the eastern hills. The country into which he was traveling was entirely unknown to him and the road to it ran through mile after mile of white barren desert. But he never faltered and pushed on until ne found the place of his dreams. And there he halted and began work. As long as his provisions lasted all went well but at last they ran short and he was forced to return to the settlements for more. And from that time on he worked, little by little, upon his tunnel until his task was almost completed. Five of the seven ledges were cut through and were behind him. perfectly barren they were but his faith never wavered. He was forced to -work alone for the voice of his vision prohibited a companion. Thiflk ofthe faith that will impel a man to work like that: to travel alone over such a desert: to risk death in a thousand ways for the sake of a vision. Truly it is remarkable. As the old man finished his narrative we had neared home and finally seated ourselves upon the chairs on the piazza. The night was a beautiful one and it was nearing another day as he arose to go. He intended, he said, to start out in a few days for his mine and seemed quite elated to think that his task was almost completed. "When you see me again." he continued. " I will be happy in having finished my work and will be in a position to return home.” At mention of the word home his eyes lighted up with joy at the thought of his loved ones from whom he had been parted for so long and 1 had to close my own to drive away the tears that threatened to fill them. I bade him good night and Godspeed and that was the last time that I ever saw him. Two months later I heard, through some friends, that his body had been found where he had camped on his way to the mine. He was buried there. It was as he had wished I knew for he had often dwelt upon his love for "God's mountains and plains" as he called them, and asked that his grave might be among them. And so it was. It is out on the plains in the midst of God's solicitude and peace that he loved so well. He will rest as he wished to. Overhead the mighty constellations of the heavens circle by in their silvery splendor while o'er the earth below the silence of a desert night reigns in grim majesty with all the power of an undisputed monarch. And over all droops the eternal silence of this land, the silence that is oblivion and that will slowly madden the sullen sheep herder or prospector who lives alone with it too long. Against the bright sky line of the east the giant form of Vulture's pinnacle is thrown out in sharp relief while around her base lie clustered the little group of hills, that as Ki Nuvii's legand tells us. "have fled to her for refuge from the pursuing mountain god. Kleet-ti who would punish them for their disobedience of ages past. In the midst of it all the old man sleeps for the last time among the grand paintings of nature that he loved so well.THE: SACRIFICE: gi:bb ’05 E know Tom Russell's history. How he was an honored college graduate. European traveler, but still the son of a headstrong old eastern squire. Tom from boyhood had loved, wisely, a maid in his native town. The old squire unreasonably objected when Tom. home from his travels, sought the girl's hand. You see a grudge of long standing stood between the squire and the maid's father. What will Tom do? It's up to him and he is penniless. Buck Chowas. foreman for the Graham Bros.' Tonto Basin outfit was apparently puzzled. His eyes wandered from the red face of his right hand man to the walls of the canyon and from them across the mesa to the right where the heat waves made him dizzy. "He's sure 'nough maverick. Hank, 'an he's off his range. But does his work well, rides his own bronc’s and has got the grit. Ask Red Wilson bout that eh. Hank?" and Buck chuckled, "yet he's so gol dam par-ticler 'bout keepin' clean and the eatin'. Kin use the genuine palaver, too. Must be some 'ristocrat sour-balled on the world. No. dammit, he's too friendly for that. I like the lad tip top." "Me. too. Buck." And they rode on. There was an old geezer. An’ he had a wooden leg: But he had no terbaccer. So terbac’ he hadder beg. Another old geezer Was as sly as a fox. An' he alius had terbaccer In his old terbaccer box. So save up yer money. An' save up yer box An' you'll always have terbaccer In your ole ter Hank broke off. “I hope I haven't interrupted?” said the figure which had come into the circle of the light. "Naw. Was just howlin' to keep myself company. Poor company, too; but there's better here now." "Thanks." replied the newcomer. We should not have recognized him in his frontier apparel and with his tanned, bearded face. Tom for the last two years had been through the mill. Arizonians who have mined and cowpunched know what that means. He had struggled hard but his pile of dust was pitifully scant. "Hank. I took a liking to you from the first-" "Ditto." broke in Hank. "You're not like the others, you're younger and have few of their failings." » "Cut 'er out. Tommie." warned the cowboy. Tom drew near to Hank as though he feared to be overheard. "I’ve struck it lad." he whispered. "During that long ride last week—gold by the bushel." His voice shook in his eagerness. "And I want you for for pardner. Hank." "Hooray! l‘m your man. Tommie, and thanks to ycr." He leaped to his feet and grasped Tom's hand. The long weeks of placer mining had drawn the men closer together. Where before there had been mutual liking there was now strong friendship. Hank had learned why the accomplished Easterner had marooned himself in the wilds. More than that, her face had once looked at him from Tom’s watch charm and he now shared in Tom's eagerness for weajth. "The grub's gittin low. pard." Tom knew that meant a long trip to Prescott and consequent delay in mining. He also knew that both should be obliged to go as the Apaches were on the warpath. Next morning the little calvacade started— two pack mules and the two saddle horses. f They had crossed the Verde Mesa, climbed the Black Hills and were going down the southern slope. Only Lonesome Valley and Fort Whipple lay between them and Prescott. They were riding through the last and what is now Mescal Canon when the attack came, they being fired upon from the limestone cliffs on their left. Side by side their horses were carefully picking their way over the rough canon bed. At the first rattle of shots Hank lurched heavily toward the right and would have fallen had not Tom caught him. Frantically and dospite the Indian bullets Tom tore the cowboys' shirt open-poor Hank never knew what had struck him. The halt had given the Apaches a good target and Tom suddenly felt a shaft of fire rip its way from his shoulder down through his right side. With a last, longing look at Hank he threw the rowels into his horse and dashed on. Looking back he saw seven Apaches running down the mountain side. He might have stopped and taken a shot but his right arm hung powerless. On and on he dashed. The first few miles in his excitement he felt no pain. Now he was out in the valley. Back on the level stretch he could see no trace of the Indians, and concluded they had no horses. Hank’s horse having been shot. But now a weakness came over him. the wound was bleeding profusely. He could not staunch the flow. He was reeling in his saddle. The horse was pulled down into a walk. A little farther he was forced to slip from the saddle—the jolting hurt him.The sun had dropped behind the Black "Hills and the evening breeze cooled his heated head. His canteen was tied to the saddle and he raised himself seeking to crawl to the horse but he could not move. He makes no murmur but that look in his eye changes: he is far away. He sees himself hurriedly, expectantly passing through the streets of his home town. Now a vine covered cottage draws near, it shelters that for which he had strived and suffered these years—ages they seem to him. The gates click behind him. he is rushing up the gravelly pathway toward the door which hides from his sight the priceless treasure he calls his own. Ah! the knob turns, it is opening, does open, he sees - — They found him with his watch charm open beside him. THE ALUMNI ci.awa mmiN ’Oi CO Iook back over the happy experiences we have met with, however small they may have been, gives a peculiar, indescribable pleasure. Especially is this true of incidents connected with our college life. It is with the hope of giving this pleasure to some of our friends and classmates that we endeavor to recall a few incidents in the college life of the members of the Alumni and also to tell what they have done since they left their Alma Mater. As yet our membership is small, for in all we are but twenty-eight, still we go on our way rejoicing in the belief, however true or false it may be. that what we lack in quantity we make up for in quality. To Mercedes Anna Shibbell. Mary Flint Walker and Charles Orma Rouse, the class of '95. belongs the honor of being the first graduates of the University of Arizona. From their motto. "In Struggle. Reward." we may judge of their trials: but it is safe to say they maintained their dignity as seniors until the end. and were justly rewarded by receiving the first degree conferred by our University. The year of 1896 passed without any graduates, but in 1897 the names of Clara C. Fish. George Ojeda Hilzinger and Mark Walker. Jr., were added to the list of graduates. Terpichore presided over this class and the genius of its members broke forth in song. The first college song of our University was produced.Sang to the tune of "Ta. Ra. Ra. Boom De Aye." its verses told of the moral, physical and mental attributes of the student body. From the graduation of this class also dates the organization of the Alumni Association. Pride filled the hearts of the class of '98. for were they not the largest class yet graduated from the University? That mighty number 4! Even in their motto "Cravior quo Paratior" they tell us with what confidence they march forth from their Alma Mater. The members of this class are Hattie Ferrin. Minnie Ruth Watts. John D. Young and Malcom Cillett. Robert L. Morton, the class of '99. was well called Robinson Crusoe, a monarch of all he surveyed. “E Pluribus Unum" is his well chosen motto. Thus far the classes had chosen gold as one of their class colors. The class of '95. silver and gold: the class of '97. crimson and gold: the class of '98. purple and gold, so this lone Sun following the seeming precedent and striving to carry out the oneness of his class chose gold. The members of the class of 1900 were Ida C. Flood. Florence R. Welles. Charles P. Richmond and Samuel Wesley McCrea. Mr. McCrea was not a resident student, but having obtained the necessary credits his degree was conferred with the class of 1900. He has since taken a degree at Stanford University and written several valuable papers on the development of education in Arizona. The literary ability of this class was marked. If an address or oration of especial importance was required either Charlie or Ida were called upon. All three took prominent parts in debates and organized the Lescha Literary Society, which lasted uptil they graduated. "Quanti est sapere." was their motto. To the energy and ability of Charles P. Richmond we also owe the beginning of our college paper. He was connected with the paper both as business manager and editor-in-chief. He was military instructor and captain of the cadets and won a gold medal in competitive drill. The class of '01 fondly called themselves “Torch-bearers of the Twentieth Century." but were often recognized as the "Naughty-Ones."’ They began their college career with a class of twelyc. which dwindled away until the great day came but three were left— George M. Parker. 6lara Ferrin and Rudolph Castaneda to prove true their motto "Finis Cornat Opus." Both of the young men were captains of the cadets. George Parker was the avowea leader of athletics. Whether in tenni$. baseball or football he always came off with honors. Wa$ this the reason of his popularity with the girls as well as with the boys? Rudolph had not much time to devote to athletic sports for we are told a more interesting subject occupied his spare moments. By his fellow students he is often fondly remembered as the hero of the pillow fight. The class of 1902 have the distinction of being the largest class yet graduated from our University.It was with a feeling of great joy that the Alumni welcomed to its ranks this class of nine: for their record as students was spotless and their faithfulness to each other and to the Alma Mater a characteristic worthy of note. For their colors they chose corn and violet; their motto is "A minimue ad maxima.” The members of this class are Ruth Brown. Rose Parrot. Bessie Smith. Phillip M. Reilly. Walter J. Wakefield. Bertram Smith. Felix G. Haynes. Moses Blumencranz and Andrew L. Akin. The young ladies after graduating taught in the public schools. Rose Parrot is teaching in the High School at Roseberg. Oregon. Hattie Ferrin after three years in the Tucson schools is now instructor in the Preparatory department of our University. Three of our members, Mary F. Walker (Mrs. P. Adams) Mercedes A. Shibbell (Mrs. Green) and Minnie Ruth Watts (.Mrs. Smith) are married. But one sorrow has come to the Alumni since its organization, the death of John D. Young. "As a student his life was characterized by those qualities that readily endeared him to all. Active in every good work and capable of achievements, he was a leader in those efforts that would tend to elevate our lives and build up our institution.” The young men have also ably filled positions of trust. Mark Walker was assistant chemist and commercial assayer of the University of Arizona and also Superintendent of Exposed Reef Mining Co. Charles Rouse was Clerk of Board of Supervisors of Pima county. Four have taken degrees at other colleges. George Hilzinger at School of Law at Ann Arbor: Samuel P. McCreaat Stanford University and Charles P. Richmond and George M. Parker at the University of California. Since leaving his Alma Mater Malcom Gillett has been draughtman in the Surveyor General's office. David Hull Holmes, who received an honorary degree with the class of 1901 is a professor at our University. Of the class of 1902 most of the young men have obtained positions with prominent mining companies. To the incoming class the Alumni extends a hearty welcome. We feel that with its members added to our number, our strength and power will be greatly increased.sTHETA NU EPSILON ARIZONA CHAPTER POUNDED 1901 Membra in Collegio T. EDWARD STEELE LESLIE A.

Yaeger Carlisle 0. Bird Marian R. Kays Duncan H. Campbell William Reynolds'flic DELTA PI ONE memorable evening in May, nineteen hundred, sixteen students of the University of Arizona found themselves seated atout a banquet table in the Hotel Orndorff. It was not a chance meeting for the gathering had long been planned and awaited. Tnc arrangement had been thoroughly looked after and the speeches responding to the various toasts had been carefully prepared. The long college term was almost over. Promotions to higher classes were a probability for some but only a possibility for others-In a few days the students would depart for their homes, some never to return, but ere this parting day should arrive these sixteen collegians must meet about this festive board. As we see them, in imagination, prepared to feast on the banquet spread before them let us pause and consider the changes time's flight has wrought. Of these sixteen students Whiprle is the only one now attending the University. While some have graduated like Wakefield. Parker and Richmond, others found themselves unable to complete their courses and obtained positions in the Territory and elsewhere and have already shown the results of uni versity training. As we see them we turn and look at the years to come. We see some struggling upon the lime-barred field in glorious endeavor to keep the red and blue unsoiled by defeat. il FRATERNITY. We see others upon the track establishing records that shall stand and perhaps fall but at any rale shall spur others to greater feats. There are still some who not of athletic mould may on the forum uphold the honor of their Alma Mater and prove that the intellect is carefully nurtured and fostered. Again we turn and see the revelers. A cosmopolitan gathering, yet a representative one. and one in which the University n ight well be proud. They met primarily to eat and to rejoice and exult over trie past trials but they also were there as representative men of the student body to discuss phases of college life that should be developed, ways and means whereby the lives of the young men attending the University could be made more pleasant. Among those called upon to voice his opinion was Ross.M-Russell, of‘Phoenix, and in a few well-chosen words he advised the organization of a fraternity. The speakers remarks were attentively followed and his suggestion was cordially received and when the last toast was drunk and the sixteen had arisen from the table in the minds of most if not all of them there lingered the hope that in the following fall an organization such as suggested by Russell would be a reality. So il was in the fall of nineteen hundred a number of the students of the University of Arizona met together and adopted a constitution and by-laws andformed the Delta Phi Fraternity. The men who signed the constitution as charter members were: 0. M. Parker. W. T. Olney. J. N. Robinson. N. J. Roberts. R. M. Russell. C. F. Day. M. Blumenkranz. H. E. Castaneda. E. J. Hollingshead and W. D. Whipple, the latter being elected president. Inexperience in fraternal work and formalities was soon overcome and the fraternity was soon hard at work. The student body soon began to regard a membership in the Delta Phi as one of highest honor and that opinion has never wavered. In this first year of its existence the fraternity initiated as members Bard L. Cosgrove. Kirke T. Moore and Allen C. Bernard. In May the first annual banquet was given and was the scene of much rejoicing over the work accomplished during the past year. All the speeches and remarks showed a united brotherhood and a confidence in the future of the fraternity. When college opened in the fall of 1901 ten members of the Delta Phi Fraternity had returned. Parker had graduated. Robinson had gone to Los Angeles to take a course in a business college, while Olney had such a lucrative position at Solorronville that he did not care to return to college. At the first meeting Kirke Moore was elected president. On the evening of November first the first annual ball was given by the fraternity and was a success in every respect. Shortly before Christmas F. H. Bernard. E. E. Jones and J. W. Gebb were admitted to membership and in March R. Cadwell and M. H. Calderwood were initiated. The evening of May 30th saw the twelve resident members of the fraternity seated at the second annual banquet. A happy, contented band, satisfied with the year's work done by the brotherhood and looking forward to the new year with hopes. Dull care flew to seek another habitation while wit and jollity held sway until time for oratory and council. Three of the brothers in the Delta Phi did not return in the fall of 1902. Blumenkranz had graduated. Allen Bernard had followed in the footsteps of Robinson and had gone to attend a commercial college in Southern California, while Cadwell was in the employ of a Bisbee firm. Bard L. Cosgrove was elected president of the fraternity. In January the following were elected to membership: W. K. Sietz, T. S. Chapin. L. M. Rosenberg. Z. Pearce, C. C Olney. E. S. Stafford and R. W. Moore. On the evening of February 6th the second annual ball was given by the fraternity. The new dining hall was profusely decorated with bunting and the colors and emblems of the brotherhood. The floor was in fine condition. Fiske's orchestra never played more divinely and when the last notes of "Home Sweet Home” had been played a notable success had been scored by the fraternity. At the present time there are seventeen members of the Delta Phi Fraternity in Tucson: Cosgrove. Hollingshead. Day. Whipple. Allen Bernard. Kirke Moore. Ernest Jones. J. W. Gebb. F. H. Bernard. Cal-derwood. Sietz. Slaffprd. Rosenberg. Roy Moore. C. C.Olney. Chaplin and Pearce Of those not in Tucson but whose names are on the membership roll. N. J. Roberts is at Benson employed in the Southern Pacific freight office. H. E. Castaneda is managing a hotel in the same town. J. N. Robinson is at present assistant cashier of the First National Bank of Clifton. W. T. Olney is the book keeper of the company store at Metcalf, near Clifton, and M. Blumenkranz is the as-sayer and surveyor of the Shannon Mining Company at the same place. Russell is the foreman of the van-ner room at the Cananea mines in Mexico. R. Cadwell is foreman of the telephone department of the Douglass Improvement Company at Douglass. Parker is at the University of California and will graduate this year. We leave them a band of young men organized for mutual pleasure and benefit, and bound together by ties of mutual confidence and fraternal regard. Stronger than ever before the Delta Phi Fraternity of the University of Arizona looks back on its past history proudly, yet unassumingly, and awaits the pages that future shall write confidently and serenely. THE SENIORS. E think it altogether fitting that we should say a word in regard to the class which will soon join that busy army of the world's employed : who go from out of our midst perhaps never to feel again the stir and bouyant touch of college life. They will soon become part and parcel of the body of our best and most hearty supporters, the Alumni, and from them we expect and will doubtless receive good things. There is a certain satisfaction in the air of commencement week: a feeling pervades as of a task well done filling both senior and those left behind to fight the uneven contest, with keen delight. Not that so much is accomplished in the simple act of graduation but it simply lends a certain sense of satisfaction: of completion of an aim once set for one in years long gone and now having reached in part its fulfillment. And in that ceremony there is somewhat of sentiment which binds very close together the man and the college of his choice. Other than this there fs an honor not to be gainsaid in receiving a degree. It marks a man as it were, a little above the gradient and justly so for a sheep skin means somewhat more than hide and ink. It means that he who claims it for his own has fought many an uphill battle, with mathametics. chemistry, phyloso-phy and his own emotions: has mayhaps let slip manya flattering offer or passing fair opportunity to get that richer knowledge which is in itself the very flesh and bone of opportunity. He has perservered until the end. discouraged oft. struggling ever, complaining perhaps a little, but holding on like the canine long famed for his tenacity, until the substance upon which he had his hold has parted from the maze of tangled meshwork and has been made his very own to be used as he sees best fit. And so we honor him for his grit, and for his power, and rejoice with him for his wide field of operation and his liberal preparation, and all join in wishing for him success in life, and joy of his success, and Godspeed ever. Miss Georgia Holmesley the only lady member of the class of '05 is a native of Arkansas. Coming to Arizona early in life she entered and graduated from the Normal School at Tempe. from which institution she presented her credentials for entrance to the University. She has been with us for the past three years during which period her residence has been upon the campus at North Hal! and later at one of the professor's residence. The degree which she will obtain is that of Ph. B. Richard L. Drane hails from old Missouri, in which state he received his common school education. When his parents moved and took up their home near Mesa Dick entered the Norma! at Tempe and from that institution transferred his residence and somewhat of his affection to the University. In witness of what he has gotten since his sojourn here we might say that facts speak for themselves and loudly, as he has been a member of a U. S. geological survey party for several summers, draughtsman for the Cananea Copper Company and surveyor on the railroad of the same company during other summers. Among us here he has been chiefly noted for his knack with the pen and compass and his rare good humor. His degree is B; S.. obtained in the Mining Department of the College. T. Edward Steele might be called the pioneer member of the class both in the matter of residence in the Territory and connection with the institution. He entered the prep, department in ’96.going through the same and entering the college proper. In 99-'00 he was a student in Stanford, and the next year acted in the capacity of manager for a large wholesale supply house in Cochise county. He has also been in the employ of the S. P. Co in his home town. Wilcox. The fall of '02 again saw him on his way to the University, and he had come to stay this time and "see her through." His degree will be B. S.. and his work has all been in the College of Mines. He has held the position of secretary-treasurer of the atletic club and has ever been the firmest of true supporter of the college sports; secretary of the University Club and lieutenant of cadets. He is a brother in T. N. E. and in E. P. H. and is undoubtedly the wittiest man in college or the Territory for all we know. E. Horton Jones, the president of the class, came West from Michigan, although Englewood High School. Chicago, gave him the basis of his education.He presented credentials from Harvard and the University of Michigan for entrance credits here and has pursued the mining course while connected with the University. His Harvard residence was due to a scholarship earned at the University of Michigan. Since his life in the west began he has followed the life of a miner, obtaining a full practical experience in that line and much of an insight into the life and works of mines and miners. Among us he has been Editor-in-Chief of the Monthly: Editor of the Gridiron, for which he deserves much credit: member of the football team: member of the University Club and brother in T. N. E. and E. P. H. Of his works here we say naught as enough of evidence is to be found written in our publications and in the memory of us all. Not the least of these is in the capacity of associate editor of this book. John W. Prout. Jr., claims Colorado as his native State, in which he graduated from the Golden high school in '99. After attending the School of Mines of that State a year he took charge of a mine in Cripple Creek, where he remained until the fall of '01. at which time he repaired to California and entered the University at Berkeley. It is from credits of these two institutions that he received entrance here. As would naturally be inferred, having followed the mines, he choose to so continue and his degree will be a B. S. in the college of mines. He is a member of the University Club and knows the meaning of the word work. Leslie A. Cillett came West from the State of Iowa, where he received his grade school work. He entered this institution on credits presented from the Phoenix high school, of which he is a graduate, although he was a book-keeper two years previous to matriculating here. He receives the first degree of B. S. in mining issued from this school of mines. Among the student body he has held several positions of passing moment, being at different times Editor-in-Chief of the Monthly: captain and quarterback of the football team: member of the University Club: brother in T. N. E. and E. P. H. and lastly Editor of this book. Beside the above there are three candidates for degrees this year who are doing P. C. work here. Mr. Evans is a graduate of the law school of Ann Arbor. Michigan. He receives from us the degree of Ph. B. As will be seen elsewhere in this edition he has acted in the past year as an instructor in mathematics and has also held the position of registrar since his entrance in the fall semester. Mr. John W. Gorby is a graduate B. A. of Marietta College. His course here has been in philosophy and education, out of which he will obtain the degree of M. A. His name appears among the list of our instructors, as the one in charge of the classes in oratory. Benj. F. Stacey is a B. A. of Lombard University and has also attended the University of Chicago. His course here has been along the lines of economics and education, in which behalf he shall receive the degree of M. A.EOOTBALL SEASON OE 1902. i'VART H. CAI.DCRV.OOD. HEN the last notes of "Home Sweet Home" shall ring out and the commencement ball is over and the University year of 1902-03 has came to a termination the students of Arizona's highest educational institution may look back on the last nine months complacently, triumphantly. They may review the events and the accomplishments of the year, the one most frought with growth, with achievement both at home and abroad, with the awakening of that spirit of enthusiasm or love for the Alma Mater without which a college can struggle but never surmount. As we look back on the year’s history we see a phalanx of toilers of the University of Arizona marching on to sweep aside the hostof opposers seeking to thwart them from the prize of success. The phalanx of 1902-03 has been more compact than ever before, its spears have glittered with a new fire, the armor has not weighed it down so heavily, and so grand strides have been made toward final achievement. Foremost in that throng the warriors of the gridiron march; the football team which won the Territorial championship. They defeated four different teams, piled up a score of one hundred and thirty-three points while their goal line wasnever crossed nor was a goal kick made against them. It is of these men that I write to recount their deeds, to describe their part in the year's history of the institution whose colors they so gloriously bore and to lay my mite of tribute at their feet. The football season began with the opening of college. The incoming trains were carefully watched so that the returning heroes of last year's gridiron battles would be noted. Each new man was critically examined by the student body and a verdict rendered as to his fitness to uphold the honor of the U. of A. The manager of last year's team, Mr. H. Clay Parker, was re-elected to the responsible position and the names of twenty-five candidates for places on the team were recorded. The first day the men were out the practice consisted of tossing the ball and falling on it. Gradually the work became heavier and a training table established. Gillett. last year's captain, coached the team until Geo. Mullen came and took charge of that department. The men were taught the Yale tackle-back formation which Harvard turned against its inventor so disastrously. Line bucking and close end runs were relied on to make the scores as long end runs and goals from field were regarded as possibilities rather than probabilities. Cosgrove was chosen to captain the team and led it until injured. A game was secured with the team of the Tucson Indian School and was played Nov. 1st. The gamewas replete with poor playing by both sides, though it must be said of the Indians that they were playing against men who were heavier and individually more experienced. The final score was seventeen to nothing in favor of the U. of A. Though the worth of the tackle-back formation had been proven there were still ragged spots that must be mended. The interference was made more compact, the line men trained to hold more firmly and to break through and the ends and tackles to tackle low and hard. On the Saturday following the same teams faced each other but the week's hard practice had accomplished wonders for the ’Varsity and so when the whistle blew and the contest was over the score was forty-two to nothing in favor of the U. of A. Mingled with Arizona's joy was regret, for Captain Cosgrove suffered the fracture of a cheek-bone and was forced to retire. November fifteenth saw the 'Varsity lined up for the struggle against Ft. Grant. Arizona was not confident of victory. The men seemed to lack the fire, the agility and the weight of the soldiers. Encouraged by a mighty cheer from the rooters the 'Varsity prepared for the fray. The ball was kicked off and eight minutes later Ft. Grant's goal-line had been crossed for a touch-down. From this on the game was a procession and at the end of the second half the score stood twenty-eight to nothing in Arizona's favor. Nothing could stop the close end runs of Day and Jacobson. Pickett plunged through the soldiers’ line for yards, while Gillett passed the ball swiftly but surely. Stafford and Suarez went outside Grant's ends easily. Rosenberg at center an Baylcss and Hodnctt by him were like a stone wall, wh e Moore and Mullen yipldcd never an inch. It was at this game that the first public appearance of the Rooters Club was made. Led by Horton Jones, they gave their yells and sang their songs. When each score was made by the 'Varsity the rooters would count the number of points and throughout the season they lent substantial aid. Rivalling the Rooters Club in encouraging the team and spurring on the individual players to greater efforts were the "co-eds." Though they could not cheer so lustily as the men they did nobly with the few opportunities they found. After a long afternoon of toil, perhaps pain, nothing could have been more refreshing than to find the training table decorated with flowers gathered by the lady students of the University. The Saturday following was the day set for the game with the Tcmpc team. The visitors were a husky lot. confident of victory because of past successes. but this did not deter the U. of A.'s grim determination. The field was heavy from recent rains, the crowd small because of Tucson's inappreciation of the college game. One minute and eighteen seconds after the Tempe kicker had sent ihe ball through the air on the kick-off a red and blue sweater flashed over the Tempe goal line and Stafford had scored a touchdown for Arizona. Again in the same half he repeatedthe performance and eacn time Day kicked a goal. For weeks this game had been awaited for we all knew that the Tempe team would be our strongest opponent and by defeating it we would be well on our way to championship honors. The visiting team proved itself an adversary of no mean strength and though disheartened in the first half by Arizona's touchdowns. they rallied in the second half and Arizona was put on the defensive. The next Wednesday morning saw the team and several substitutes start for Naco to play Ft. Huachuca. The trip told on some of the men. but despite this and new surroundings they made the game a repetition of the Ft. Grant contest. Shortly after the kick-off Gillett was injured and taken out of the game and Cosgrove, not yet recovered from his carly-season injury, went in. Through the line and around the ends went Arizona's men whenever they chose and when the final whistle blew Ft. Huachuca saw a score of thirty-four to nothing against it. This game closed the football season of '02 for the University of Arizona. The team had won five games and played against four different teams and made a score of one hundred and thirty-three points, while their opponents had made no points against them. The ’Varsity had trained hard for the contests, was well coached and led and few of the men comprising the team were injured and so were able to go through the season with but little changing of players. From the first practice the student body was be- hind the team aiding, encouraging and assisting as they could. As soon as the faculty realized that the candidates for the team meant business they too were behind the Varsity, lending valuable aid. So praise must be given all. to those who made the team, to those loyal fellows who went out on the field and took the knocks of the first team that its play might be perfected, to faculty and students. The season demonstrated the necessity of a versi-tality of attack of using many players to carry the ball instead of a trio of backs. The Arizona line was strong everywhere and held the opposing line from getting through and breaking up the play before it was started. The takles-back formation would have been an impossibility had Arizona's line been weak in a single position. Tempe had a good line with the exception of a right end and this exception cost the team on which the man played the game and possibly the championship of the Territory. Day did the kicking for Arizona and took good care of this department both in punting and goal kicking. Our back field was versatile, all could handle punts, two were good kickers, all could hammer the line and run the ends. So as able exponents of the American college game, and worthy bearers of the Red and Blue, we present them: Rosenberg, center: Baylcss, right guard; Hodgnett. left guard: Moore right tackle; Mullen and Kelton. left tackle: Stafford, right end; Saurez, left end: Cosgrove.captain:Gillettc. quarter-back; Day, right half: Jacobson, left half, and Pickett, full back. Here’s three times three to these men. the University of Arizona football team, champions of Arizona for ’02.ON COURTS AND TRACK REALIZING that athletics is an important factor in our university life, we have taken an active interest in advancing the several college sports. Our school is yet small and only in its twelfth year, but despite these facts, we have as good material for football. base ball and track athletics as is usually found in a college of twice or three times our size. Each fall is looked forward to. by all the old stud-dents. with eagerness, to see how many of the players of the previous year have returned and how many robust young men have come to join the foot-ball ranks or try to get their names on the list of those holding college records in track athletics. In the past it has been very encouraging to see so many of our old athletes return, together with a large number of likely candidates for a position on the first team. It seems as though after a year of fighting for athletic honors in behalf of our University that the true college spirit becomes so instilled in them that they return to defend the honors won during the previous year, or to regain the laurels lost. All athletics are under the direct supervision of the Athletic Association. All students are eligible to membership and are admitted to the Association upon the payment of an initiation fee of fifty cents. A quarterly assessment of twenty-five cents is collected from each member at the first of every quarter: those failing to pay are dropped from the roll, beside being prohibited the use of any goods or the grounds under the direction of the Association. The members of the faculty are honorary members of the organization. The officers are president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer and executive and auditing committees. The executive committee is composed of the president of the Association and the chairmen of the committees on foot ball, base ball, tennis and field sports. It is their duty to settle all points of question and order the disbursement of the money in the treasury. The auditing committee, composed of two members of the executive committee and a representative from the faculty. audit the books of the treasurer in January and May. Since our attendance is rather small and the regular dues are not sufficient to cover expenses it has been customary to pass a subscription, early in the year, among the students and faculty, and also among the business men of the town. In this regard we have been very successful, our town people contributing liberally. Considering the disadvantages under which our men have worked, we could hardly wish for better results. A gymnasium has been our greatest need, for without one it is very difficult to obtain the necessarytraining and care that is needed in all athletic work, but by next September we will be supplied with this long-felt necessity. We are indebted to the Copper Queen companies’ officials, as they have generously donated the required amount for the erection of the building and through the last legislature two thousand dollars were appropriated to purchase the necessary apparatus with which to furnish it. It has now become the general opinion that in order to develop a successful team it is necessary to have a competent coach. Thus far we have been deficient in this regard, but it is to be hoped that the Board of Regents will soon take the matter in hand and see the necessity of having a thorough athletic instructor as a member of the faculty. We only have to look over the history of other colleges to see the advantages gained by having such a trainer; without him we have no opportunity for the development of our teams except through knowledge imparted by one student to another and by observation. Therefore no new ideas are originated and applied and we are only able to practice formations and methods of training that are ancient history in most all other colleges. Let us then hope that with the coming of the gymnasium we will also get an athletic instructor. Aside from the deficiencies already mentioned there is no doubt one other: this being the lack of competition. At the present time there is only one school within a radius of five hundred miles capable of competing with us and thus far it has only been possi- ble to get a game of football each year, while baseball, track and field sports are not considered by them. This deficiency cannot be remedied except by the growth of the Territcry. so with the other necessities supplied, time will bring the last mentioned. Baseball and tennis have been badly neglected thus far. Aside from what the preparatory students have done no interest has been taken in this game for the past four years. Tennis has made more progress during the present year than ever before. Our team leaves for Phoenix on April 8th to compete against the High School, the Country Club and possibly the Normal at Tempe. Our prospects are very bright and it is to be hoped by all that we will be victorious. Track athletics was started for the first time in our history in 1897. Through the energy of a few energetic athletes in town a team was organized and a challenge sent to the University. It was the first opportunity we had offered us. so we immediately accepted and began training. The day set was the twenty-second of February, and the place Union Park. Entirely hopeless of victory we met the foe and to our great satisfaction carried off the honors in every event except two. From this day on it seemed as if the whole University had undergone a change. Before there was no spirit and life manifested, but since we had gained one victory everyone seemed willing to try for another, so in this way college spirit and a love for our University was introduced here. It has now become the custom to have a field dayon the twenty-second of February of each year and it is considered, with the exception of the football game Thanksgiving. Ihc most important event of the school year. We arc making rapid progress in this work as is se n by the number of records broken each succeeding .yea , and with a few more years of improvement w'p wilj be able to compete with the colleges of California, doing credit to ourselves.

MARSHALL THE CADET BATTALIONDEBATINGUNIVERSITY CLUB. Z. V. BAY1XSS. CHE University Club came upon the University as an innovation and its timely organization has elevated and broadened society work in the school. As time goes on and more is known of its broad liberal work its influence will be more and more felt in the institution. The independence and originality which characterize its every action cannot but have a good effect upon its opponents as well as its members. The cosmopolitan nature of the club tends to lift the societies from the narrow beaten paths that have been followed by all the literary societies for ages, and give them room to broaden with the world, extending their work beyond the narrow confines of a "time-honored“ threadbare routine. The club boasts of no long varied history: its annals are few. Organized October third, nineteen hundred and two. by a number of young men. mostly upper class men: it was from the first and remains a strict student's organization. As the first year of its life draws to an end it has completed an epoch of its history, left its youth behind and taken on strength and proportions of a mature giant. Its strength bespeaks for it a great future. At the first regular meeting Mr. F. C. Kelton was elected temporary chairman, and a committee was appointed to draft a constitution and by-laws. The constitution as drafted by the committee was adopted at a second meeting, and the following officers were elected: F. C. Kelton. president: C. L. Ball, vice president: T. E. Steele, secretary and treasurer. A programme committee of three members were elected. On this committee were Messers Drane. Jones and Johnston. By the constitution all members are required to perform all duties assigned by this committee and failure to perform such duty is punishable in any way which the club may elect. At these first meetings there were twelve members present. The constitution of the club declares all students of the University of Arizona are eligible to membership. and shall be admitted to membership upon a two-third vote of members. It has been the will of the society during the year that only men be admitted to membership. These restrictions have kept up the high standard that would not be possible were everybody and every interest indiscriminately admitted. While the standard of the society has been kept up a healthy growth has not been prevented. In the one year of its life its membership has doubled. The names of the members of this club are as follows:Frank C. Kelton H. C. Parker. C. F. Day R. L. Drane E. H. Jones C. O. Byrd John W. Prout. Jr. J. W. Corby R. E. Johnston T. K. Marshall Will W. Brostrom R. C. Jacobson T. E. Steele C. C. Gallen W. K. Seitz C. L. Ball L. A. Cillett E. C. Pickett R. B. Metcalfe Z. V. Bayless B. L. Cosgrove R. J. Mead Leo M. Rosenberg W. B. Alexander The organization of this club came out of a desire on the part of its promulgators to enable them through practice to express their views and impart their knowledge to the world. In consequence of the dislike of the members of this club for the methods in vogue with other societies that have had their existence at this University in the past the club broke away from all precedent, adopting a simple but broad and liberal policy. While in name the University Club is a literary society it can claim more than this. The nature of a great many articles and discussions have been purely scientific. The scope of the club's researches and discussions covers and goes even beyond the scope covered by our University itself. No branch of interest from athletics to engineering has been ignored. The object as declared by the constitution is to stimulate an interest in literary and scientific subjects by writings and discussions thereon and to attain ease and grace in the expressions of one s thoughts before an audience. A pure literary society has no charms for a man of scientific turn of mind. Among such men as are to be found at this University science is uppermost and this fact has had its effect upon the determining of the policy of the club. The Club has held a regular meeting on each second and fourth Mondays of each month since its organization. At each meeting a regular programme has been carried out and among the articles of interest contributed at these meetings was an address by Mr. Marshall upon the development of Alaska, her customs and prospects. M. Marshal) having spent some time in Alaska, is familiar with the history of the country from its purchase from Russia, the discovery of gold in the Klondike and the conditions and prospects of that great icy twilight country, so that his address was very instructive and interesting. Mr. Ball gave some valuable hints on California's methods of reclaiming her arid lands and her wealth in artesian water supply. Mr. Metcalfe's experience as a stranger in an Arizona mining camp was a rare treat and Mr. Steele's defense of co-education was exceptionally good as he spoke from conviction and showed exceptional qualities as an orator. Mr. Gallon awoke our fancies by referring to the great store of traditions in the sleepy regions to our south, bringing to mind the sturdy adventurers who three centuries ago planted there among the savages the emblem of Christianity, to which they now cling with superstitious zeal. Attimes during the foot-ball season, when our team was playing havoc with previous records, the meetings savored of the gridiron. The Club has been favored time and again during the year by choice music from its mandolin club. At no time has the Club called on anyone outside' its own members to assist in filling out a programme. A feature of every programme has been a number of extemporaneous speeches which have been as a whole good and instructive. There were a number of studied and extemporaneous debates: one of note was upon the question of the abolition of co-education at the University of Arizona, in which Mr. Parker supported the movement for abolition and Mr. Steele ably opposed it. but Mr. Parker's sound logic won for him the decision of the house. During the first semester the Club challenged the Philomathean to a joint debate and choose as the debaters Messrs. Ball and Seitz, while the Philomathean choose Whipple and Hayes. The terms were arranged by a joint committee and the date fixed for January 12th. The question being. " Resolved, that capital punishment shall be maintained:'' the Club took the negative. The debate was held under the auspices of the Oratorical Association, composed of the two literary societies of the University. Both societies were enthusiastic and gave their respective champions deafening cheers. The Philomathean debaters handed their question with credit but it availed them nothing, for in the face of the arguments produced by the Club members their s were of little note. Seitz spoke without notes, with force and clearness. and the decision was two to one in favor of the Club. It was hoped that this should only be the first of a number of debates between the two societies but with this debate interest ceased and nothing more was done toward another contest. It is to be hoped that the importance of this work and the benefit to be derived from such contests will be appreciated at their right value and in the future they will be of more common occurrence. To say that it is not the fault of the Club that such affairs have not beemnumerous is not necessary. for it has declared its willingness at all times to debate under fair conditions with any and all societies at the University. The first challenge issued at the University was issued by the Club and this done, the ice broken, the next move was left to the other side. When the call was made for entries for the Tempe debate the matter was left to the members to decide for themselves whether or not they should participate in the preparations and preliminaries for the debate, the Club not wishing to draw into the affair against their will any members of the organization. The outcome of this action was that only one member volunteered to participate and as this one member is Mr. Seitz it it safe to say that the Club will have nothing to fear from the outcome as everyone looks with good reasons for an excellent address from him. He has a good show to win and will without accident give to the University a second crown at expense of the Normals.THE PIIILO AATHEAN ni s ,ms CHE Philomathean Literary Society is the oldest, as well as the most representative, of the student organizations of the University of Arizona. The exact date of its beginning is not recorded, but there is evidence that it was in existence as early as the year 1895. The first meeting of which we now have a record, however, occurred on January 14. 1898. and. as the minutes show that a constitution was adopted at that meeting, we may infer that the society was reorganized then and became essentially the Philomathean that we now know. At that time it was the only literary society of the University, and was open to all members in good standing. At the beginning of the present year the membership was limited to college students: but this provision was later changed so as to admit fourth preparatory students as well. The Philomathean Society has passed through many changes. There have been times when but few responded to the roll call. But notwithstanding these discouraging periods, the society has known much success. Each time its waning strength has been revived until at the present time there is no doubt that it will live on and fulfill the object for which it was established to increase the proficiency of its members in literary work, and to promote their social welfare. LITERARY SOCIETY uu nrAon. The work of this year has done much to raise the standard of the society. Last year it sank to its lowest ebb. and may be said to have existed only in name. However, the society was not dead, only sleeping, and the spirit that had saved it before saved it again. Soon after the opening of school this year the remaining members of the society had a series of special business meetings and re-established it on a working basis. The former constitution was remodeled to suit the present needs, and a long list of new names was added to the roll, which had been greatly reduced by the year of inactivity. In the work of reorganization the old members had the hearty cooperation of Prof. Corby and other members of the faculty. A new inducement for students to join was offered by Prof. Hall the giving of credit for work done in the society as an equivalent for public rhetorical s. The first regular meeting of the society was held on October 24th with Mr. Hollingshead in the chair as president, and Miss Cung'l as secretary. At this -meeting an interesting literary and musical program was rendered to a large audience of students and townspeople, and throughout the year the meetings have continued with uniform success. The members began with a determined spirit, and the enthusiasmwas quickened by the organization of a rival society, the University Club, as well as by the approaching debate with the Tempe Normal School. The inducements to work for the society's success were: To become proficient in debate, and thus secure a place on the debate with the Normal School: to make credits in the society rather than appear in the assembly: and to secure general literary culture and social enjoyment. Most of the meetings have not been open to the public. but the programs have been as carefully prepared and as conscientiously rendered as if for open meetings. The arrangement of the programs has been in the hands of an able committee, and members were made to understand their duty to serve on the programs by a fine of twenty-five cents in case of failure to do so. This reduced the membership, somewhat, but the reduction merely helped to get rid of the chaff. The success of a society depends not so much upon the number of its members as upon the faithfulness and diligence with which they perform their duty. The programs have consisted of recitations, original essays, speeches, music, addresses by members of the faculty, and both extemporaneous and carefully prepared debates. Prof. Gorby served as critic the first half of the year while Prof. Hall has served as critic during the latter half of the year, and they have not hesitated to improve the society by fully criticising the program and by making good suggestions regarding the manner of conducting its work. The meetings have often been greatly lengthened by the discussion of modes of precedure, points of privilege, or by debate on some amendment to the constitution or by-laws. The members entered into these discussions heartily and in many cases with determined, though good-natured antagonism. The fiery debates over the time of meeting, membership, fines for non-attendance. and other points showed the real progress the society was making. In December the growing rivalry between the University Club and the Philomathean Literary Society was heightened by a challenge from the University Club to a debate, the subject chosen by the joint committee of the societies being: "Resolved. That capital punishment should be maintained." As the time approached the excitement grew, and on the appointed day the Philomatheans raised their flag over the University and appeared in their colors royal purple and white. The flag was protected by Mr. Scow who spent an hour near the top of the flagpole while the members of both societies contended below. At last the President settled the good-natured strife by taking charge of the flag. The debate took place or. January 12th. beginning at 8:30 in the evening. The applause was supplemented by original socieiy songs from both sides. The question was defended by Messrs Hayes and Whipple of the Philomathean and refuted by Messrs Seitz and Ball of the University Club, the Board of Regents acting as judges. The Philomathean Society lost the debate by a vote of one to two: but her courage was undaunted, and her spiritwas shown by a challenge the next week, which, however. was not accepted by the University Club. After this debate the Philomatheans thought that interest would be better kept up by meeting every Saturday night instead of every other Friday as had been their custom previously, and this was accordingly arranged for. The roll of the Philomathean Society for the school year of 1902-03 is as follows: Misses Byrd. Colton. Davis. Feldman. Gung'l. Holmesley. Meade. Moore. Prout, Robinson. Wood: Messrs Calderwood. Crable. Foster. J. Gamble. W. Gamble. J. W. Gebb. W. S. Gebb. Hadsell. Hayes. Hollingshead, Millington. K. Moore. R. Moore. Olney. Pierce. Scow. Stafford. Stanley. Whipple. The officers for the year have been: Presidents. Messrs Hollingshead and Stafford: vice presidents. Mr. Pearce and Miss Wood: secretaries. Miss Gung’l. Messrs Calderwood and Hadsell: treasurer. Mr. Gebb and Miss Colton: critics. Profs. Hall and Gorby: sergeants-at-srms. Messrs. Stafford. Foster and Millington. It is not strange that the names of none of the charter members of the Philomathean Literary Society appear on the present roll: tut it is striking that the names of none of our present members are on the first recorded roll, that of 1897-98. This shows how the work of one set of students has been taken up by the next, keeping the society practically unchanged. I was told by an ex-member that in the early days the society was very interesting and well attended, and I find from the roll of 1897-98 that all the bright lights of the University honored it with their presence. Most of the graduates of the University have been members, among them Miss Clara Fish and Mr. Mark Walker of the class of 1897. the entire classes of 1898. 1899. 1900 and 1901, and Misses Brown and Smith, and Messrs Blumenkranz. Haynes. Rielly and Wakefield of the class of 1902. The minute-book shows that the society was very active in the school year of 1897-98. The meetings were held with open doors and musical and literary programs rendered, and there were active discussions over business matters. It is interesting to note that Mr. Richmon made a motion to challenge the Hesperian Literary Society of the Tempe Normal School to a debate. The motion was carried but since can find no further mention of the matter. I infer that the debate never took place. During that year Miss Flood. Mr. Guild. Mr. Gillett and Mr. Richmond seem to have been the most active members: but the programs show that the others were not lacking in enthusiasm. The work was taken up at the beginning of the school year of 1898-99 where it had been dropped the year before and was carried on along the same lines. The roll shows the enlistment of many new members. A noteworthy event of the year was the buying of the Philomathean bulletin board on March 20th. At that year's commencement exercises the Philomathean gave an evening's entertainment which did the societygreat credit. The programme opened with a very pretty physical culture drill, which was followed by vocal and instrumental music, orations, essays and recitations. The year's work for 1899-1900 was not so prosperous. but at commencement time there was a temporary revival, and a good literary evening was contributed to the commencement program. The next year the society regained some of its former spirit, which was shown by a motion to hold, (every other meeting with closed doors for the better transaction of business, and by a banquet, and by several receptions given by different members to the society. At commencement a play was given under the auspices of the Philomathcan Society. The sum of sixty dollars profit was raised and placed in the Philomathean treasury; but unfortunately in the next year the society declined and at the end of the year a special meeting called for the purpose of disposing of the money rashly put it out of the control of the society, to the present disadvantage of our treasury. The last meeting of the Philomatheans for the present year was held on April 4th, when an adjournment was made till October. 1903. at which time it is expected that th$ meetings will be resumed and a prosperous year entered upon.CHRONICLE OT THE YEAR A REVIEW R. HORTON dONRS. ELL, fellows. 1903 is done: at least so far as actually living over again those college days is concerned. 1 don't know whether all your ardor has been entirely dampened in this last half I surpect not—it wasn't that way during a game of foot-ball. When you come right down to it, we have such an existence as a U. A. man. That was proved up this year. I don’t mean just a registered being in attendance at an institution called, say. the University of Arizona, or U. A., for short. Oh. no: that’s too easy. But a living being, a red-blooded individual, characterized by a sentiment and qualities of character which distinguish him as the U. A. man. The first half of 1903 showed us that we did have the individual and I think the last half has shown us that we still possess him. Now this isn't chronicle—you have had the news several times over this year. This is what the chronicle means. 1 believe. So you employ the facts to illustrate what we have to say here. Of course if there is a U. A. man. this unique circumstance is a bond between such men. a spirit uniting them in one. Did any petty, insignificant feeling or other tie. ever show itself on the gridiron or in the debate or tennis court? No. it was a whole-hearted support among the students. You know that it takes only a word to get support to defend a fellow, to aid a fellow, to wish him God-speed and success when he acts or when you recognize him as the Arizona college man. You are loyal to that self—you unselfishly forget smaller things because of it You can summon instances galore that show this. 1 need not repeat them. Of course there is a U. A. man. And as the first half of the year showed so truly the university spirit the spirit which is the U. A. man’s sentiment, it showed too the characteristics of the active side of this person. The successes accomplished this year were the result of entire student initiative and stick-to-itiveness of student resource, work and talent, of these alone. They weren’t accomplished under a favorable sky either, you know that, save in one exception. We aren’t cheering now. we are reflecting, but if we were, wouldn't there be a round of the three heartiest yells that ever split this Tucson air for that one exception? Well, read over the doings of the first half: do you not find the U. A. man is independent? Am I not right? Don’t they pretty near all propose to do their ownsteering and aren't they capable? You know it. He is initiative, naturally being independent and capable of accomplishment, he has been and still is initiative. He is hospitable and social. You best know this when you drop in here as a stranger at the first of the year. We have the word of gentlemen, that he is a gentleman— read your chronicle and does it not show this in and through all? We have said the second half of the year showed the U. A. man was still here. Now. did you ever see a perfectly frictionless bearing? No? It is the friction which shows up the bearings. So too it is the friction which has shown up our man. It has shown that our U. A. man is still capable of handling himself, he still has a warm heart, is still a gentleman and is loyal through and through to the college tie which binds. Don't forget that tie is a self—the U. A. self. But it shows too that the U. A. man not only is this, but proposes to be this. It shows he recognizes his mission at college, and that in pursuing his purpose he guards zealously his independence and freedom. He is initia- j tive and proposes to meet obstacles which restrict and domaneer. for he comes not here to be lead, to accept opportunities of work which bring a development for his native possibilities. So as you reflect over the chronicle of this year, over its laurels, there were no defeats: over the moments of perfect accord amongst all the factors here and these are few: save only in the student body you will not have cause to regret that you were a true and loyal U. of A. man. Until the time comes when everyone feels those distinctive qualities and sentiments we have mentioned in everyone about him and likewise the privilege of exercising those characteristics which mean not restriction; not obstacles, but opportunities with encouragement, will there be a slumbering coal of discord where it should, not he. Happily, it exists not amongst the students, for which fact will 1905 ever be remembered as the birth year of the U. A. spirit, of the U. A. man. Yes, 1903 is done. No. not done. Three cheers for the U. A.THE YEAR Wednesday. September ] 7.— Registration day. Thursday, September 18. First assembly addressed by ex-Chancellor Herring. Saturday.
