Pudicam, Qui primus virtutis honos, servavit ab omni non solum facto verum, opprobrioquoque turpi.” I aw ' — Horace, 6th Satire Lib. I. DATES AND PLACES IMPORTANT, The University of Ur Kansas YOU Come up from the south over the ’Frisco and are whirled along among the Ozarks instead of the fertile cottonfields of the Arkansas valley, you come at last to a region prettier than you had thought our State could boast. The flying train gives vou but short glimses of green clad hills and winding Valleys ; of streams flow¬ ing like liquid crystal along their rambling beds, and rocky cliffs whose gray moss proclaims the ages they have stood. Suddenly the train turns out of a narrow valley and instead of mountains vou see a broad plain where all is life, and far off in the distance, set like a crown upon a rounded hilltop, the University of Arkansas. Placed as it is in the very center of the finest fruit country in the world, surrounded by the pure air and cooling breeze of the Ozarks. the University enjoys a salubrity of climate that is rarely to be met with. The health of the students is excellent, and every precaution is taken to guard against disease. The University was founded in 1S71, under the provisions of the United States government appropriating land for that purpose. Its first class was graduated in 1S75, and eight of its members are now living. Since its foundation its growth has been something remarkable. Accord¬ ing to the catalogue for 1S96T97 it boasts an enrollment of S50, thus placing it among the largest in the country. This year it is expected that the total enrollment will be something over 900. As regards equipment, though the legislature has not been so liberal as it might be, still we are very well off. The Law and Medical depart¬ ments are at Little Rock, the Branch normal at Pine Bluff, and the others at Fayetteville. The University graduates students prepared for practical work in scientific agriculture, in engineering (electrical, civil and mechanical,) or makes them practical chemists, geologists, botanists or entomologist. The laboratories are thoroughly equipped with modern apparatus for work in seven different sciences, and are among the best in the South. The engineering laboratories are also well equipped, besides the ‘‘shops,” as they are called, for instruction in wood working and forging There are full courses of instruction in seven different languages, besides English and Anglo-Saxon, in mathematics, logic and astronomy, in the various natural and mental sciences, in history, in pedagogics, economics and sociology, in music, and in art. Worthy of notice are the mus¬ eums, both the industrial and natural history. The latter contains about 10,000 specimens. The University li¬ brary contains only about 8,000 vol¬ umes. A liberal appropription would do some good here. TIIE MILITARY DEPARTMENT In accordance with the provisions of the act under which it was founded, a U. S. army officer is detailed at the University as commandant and pro¬ fessor of military science and tactics. All of us take a great interest in drill, —sometimes, we’ll admit, not a very pleasant duty. The corps of cadets comprises two battalions of three companies each, to say nothing of the staff. There is also a cadet band, reputed to be the best in the State, and a bugle corps. According to the last annual report of the Secretary of War, the University received a higher rating than any other insti¬ tution in the United States. Do you blame us for being proud of our military department? CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS In this respect we are not behind. The literary societies are doing excellent work. The halls on the fourth floor of University Hall are well furnished and well kept. Each has its own library and piano, and many are the high old times up there on dark nights. The average expenses of a student are not more than $250, with board at Buchanan Hall, or $300 in town. And at this figure a student can live well. The students publish two periodicals, The Ozark , a monthly magazine, and The Cardinal. We are not very conceited about it, but we do think they represent us pretty well, don’t you ? The various fraternities and sororities are flourishing. And, by the way, we have heard that one fraternity refused to enter the University " ‘because it was too small.” Well, such ignorance is pitable. Too bad, indeed. We’re sorry, really. Among other organizations is the Science Club, which holds meetings every two weeks. The Sociology Club is also in a splendid condition, and its roll is steadily growing. The University Oratorical Association holds annual contests, and meets at spasmodic intervals for the purpose of electing officers i vi i Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi Vi V or transacting business. It sends each year a representative to the intercollegiate oratorical contest at Little Rock, along with a special train and a mile or so of cardinal bunting and a band. Just at present the Glee Club is making things howl, and inci¬ dentally doing a little howling sua parte. It is about thirty-five strong, and contemplates a tour of the State at some future time— possibly after the next presidential election. Athletic interests are looking up. The University Athletic Association consists of the football team, baseball team, tennis club and the athletic club. It is in this department that we have been behind. If the legislature would but make some appropriation for athletics it wouldn’t take us long to develop some remarkable prowess ! As it is we have a record to be proud of. Our eleven could only arrange for three games last season, but we lost none of them, and made a total score of 42, against our opponent’s o; and this was done by men who did all their school work, drilled three times a week, and virtually trained themselves. That speaks pretty well, doesn’t it ? And we are all right in the other athletic sports. A track team was organized in March, and has done splendid work. The gym¬ nasium is supported entirely by the students; never a cent has the legislature furnished for it. The tennis club is growing, and more and more interest is being taken in athletics as a whole. Give us an appropriation, O ye men who do such things! Let us have a physical di¬ rector, a gymnasium and an athletic field, and then, me- hcrcule , we’ll show you a thing or two. social life The social influences that are brought to bear on the University students is the best that could be desired. The town is strictly prohibi¬ tion, so no danger can come from that source. The fac¬ ulty does not object to a student’s having all the fun he wants,provided he gets his lessons and acts a gentlemen. Indeed, some of the faculty, if you’ll excuse our speaking of it, seem to enjoy a good time themselves once in a while. Well, we can’t blame them. If they want to fall in love with each other, it’s alright with us. A student need not fear a dull time. He’ll find plenty of places to go if he wants to go, and if he doesn’t want to go nobody objects. We are not snobbish. We may be a little slow about asking a man to join our “ frats,” once in a while, but that depends altogether on the man. Some of us dance; some of us do not. Some of us studv a good deal; some, by the way. do not show the effects of overwork. There are no dudes!!—the last one left school a year and a half ago. The people of Fayetteville have as a general thing been more than cordial in welcoming the students. Of course, one or two mentally dilapidated individuals have objected to our giving the college yell when we feel sort o’ hilarious, but their objections were speedily withdrawn tor cause. For what cause? Because a United State?- Army officer of 225 pounds is a rather dangerous looking member when his ire is up. Comprtnez-vous f At Commencement Fayetteville is especiallv gav. Evervbodv goes to everything they can go to, from the Competitive Drill to the Commencement Exercises—except chapel. We don’t appreciate chapel much-unless the appreciation is insisted on. Some of the profs don’t appreciate it either. Strange, isn’t it ? THE STUDENTS ’s d ■ But, after all, it takes something more than a faculty and a few lecture rooms to make a university. The other requisite is a student body, and we have it. All sorts and conditions of men are to be found around our walls, to say nothing of women of all ages and degrees of beauty, from the wrinkled grad whose years are beyond compare to the dainty little subfresh of fourteen. The phases of student life are nothing out of the common run. We are all here and we do just what we please, with the exception of going to chapel and drill. Some of us fall in love, and none of us are above a little flirtation once in a while, even Price and Ross don’t object to it. When first he comes to Fayetteville, the mind of the freshman is in a topsy-turvy state. If he has any friends they very probably meet him at the station. If not, he is met there just the same by a howling mob of hoarse col¬ legians, all glad to see him and know him. and. perchance, to have a little fun at his expense. He is shown the way to his boarding house, perhaps the dorm., and his troubles have begun. But before a week has passed he is heartily in love with alma mater , and he wears the Cardinal and veils u Bom-a-lacka ” whenever he gets a chance. Perhaps, if he is rather unsophisticated, he is called upon a few nights after his arrival by a few students in uniform, who gravelv inform him that as his name begins Tb 9 life with W or R or X or whatever the case may be, it is his turn to go on guard at the University, and many tales are poured into his ears of “Rig Dick’s” strictness and the necessity of close vigilance, until with faint heart but with great delight at the confidence displayed in him, he marches up to the ’Varsity, looking ghastly white and phantomlike in the moonlight, and faithfully guards the same until drowsy sleep o’ertakes him and he is at last awakened by a few belated revelers just from a dance or frat. meeting, and they give the thing away. As a general thing he gets home about 2:30, though one student got back at 12:45. Soon drill begins, and he endures the torments of the awkward squad for about three weeks and then his uniform comes, and he probably wears it wherever he goes for a month, and after that he hates it. Maybe he is asked to join a fraternity, and, as is the case with some, maybe he is not. If lie joins, alright; if not, he is still a ’Varsity student, and he has as many friends as he deserves. And right here it is to be observed that at the University of Arkansas a man is what he makes himself. If he dresses and acts as a gentle¬ man, he can move with the best; if not, he has few with whom he may associate. Wealth mnv count for a time, but its pre-eminence does not last long, and true worth is the great criterion. And so the student’s life goes on. He is taken to call on some of the girls; works math; learns to cut chapel; examinations come, and for a week he is worked to death, but at the end his freshman year is finished and he feels wise. But his glories really come when he enters sophomore. Then it is he joins with impressive dignity in a freshman reception and thinks how ' much he has learned in a year. lie is appointed ser¬ geant, joins the Glee club, and can get inside the ropes at the foot ball games. Perhaps he is given a place on The Ozark or Cardinal staff; if so, he develops a surprising talent in the literary line. He wonders that it has lain dormant so long. Soon June comes again and then he is a junior. Now is the time he falls in love, and as he writes verses to the fortunate one in his own inimitable style he smiles at the recollection of his former love affairs. They seem so silly, now’ that he is a junior, and she-well, she is a freshman, but that doesn’t make any difference, because girls are not expected to have much sense anyhow. He goes with her everywhere, does her lab for her if he can, ex¬ plains to her the foot ball games. He goes out with the crowd on Hallowe’en, and with a jolly set he parades the streets with tin horns and canes seeking fun and a good time generally. They congregate around the Square, yell themselves hoarse, go down the street to Lorwein’s and take-ves, lemonade. At last senior comes with its privileges and glories. For nine short months he feels that the earth is scarcely large enough for him. With straight shoulders and quick steps he marches his company ’round on dress parade and casts furtive glances from the corner of his eye to see if she is looking. Intermediates pass and he longs for June. Just one more event and it comes. This is the State Oratorical Contest in April. Each year the students go to Little Rock on their special, with the engine and cars covered with cardinal bunting. They run the whole distance almost without a stop, flying through the little towns on the road in a fashion calculated to strike terror into the hearts of the inhabitants, and when Little Rock is reached the girls get in carriages and the boys form column of fours in the street with the cadet band at their head, and up the hill they march, and on up Markham to the Rich¬ elieu, and Little Rock knows they are there. And after the contest, be it won or lost, they gather ’round a banquet board at the Capital or the Richelieu, or some other place, and drow n their sorrows with toasts that are not dry and speeches that eloquently bespeak a full heart. But June comes at last, and for another week hi gives himself over to fun. 1 le gets his diploma and possibly makes a speech that is not so brilliant as it is long, and on his last night, when the frat. gives its final banquet, he delivers his toast with tears in his eyes and dances with her for six short hours, and-he is an alumnus of “ the dearest old place on the face of the globe.” 10 !.)

These hopeful in¬ nocent . all too ignorant and careless of the tortures prepared for them in the Hall of Inquisition (Examination Hall is an official euphemism for the same place), soon, as was inevitable, made the ac¬ quaintance of the Chief Inquisitors and of alma mater; equally inevit¬ ably. of course, these youths and maidens met each other and-?- but eel a njfit ! Those that survived the Inquisition were duly initiated in the (for ome perennial) Order of the Freshmen, and, sacrificing per¬ sonal pride to tradition and precedent, put on appropriate giddiness and greenness. Apropos at this point in the chronicle, it becomes our painful duty to tearfully record that this assumed demeanor was so well put on and became so confirmed a habit with some of the order that to this day they have never been able to throw it off. Vidi The gay and giddy young things have, by ’95, • become wiser, much wiser, in one respect at least. Aided by the gentle admonition and persistent prodding of professors, and the mo re effective loving rebukes of the Confessors (the Discipline Committee), they have learned to know that universities are not merely charitably organized retreats where the festive youth may abide in jov and cheerfully telegraph home: “Send money to buy chevrons—been appointed section-marcher.” Some of them wear a weary and haunted look. Banquo’s ghost masquerades before them most effectively in the guise of unpassed fresh exams. (It was in this year ’95 that the session was changed, and in the consequent mix-up, the class remained in undisturbed possession of the soph claims until June, ’96.) ft or hi (Tfie Profs) And now, in the three short months to September, ’96, behold, what a transforma¬ tion! The lordly junior, admitted into the sanctum sanctorum of the Li¬ brary, stakes out for himself a cosy corner, props his feet independently upon a table, and spends his vacant hours devouring magazines, “cuss¬ ing” his pet professor, or practicing a blase expression- Vici Time has posted in his scrap-book another leaf — another year’s checkered history — tear-stained and blotted in some places, with many attempted erasures and sub¬ stitutions, but, withal, a pleasant diary, — and the senior is before you. His traditional seemly gravity and learned look is more than half concealed under a happy smile, and his stately, solemn tread is heard only in imagination. His step, instead, is light and joyous; and why not? The fourth mile-post is in sight, the race has been almost run and the prize is ready for the victor. We begin to know now why the end of school is called commence¬ ment, but we are not afraid of what the future holds—we are eager to try it. The Class of Ninety-eight kicks up its heels, drinks a toast to itself and clasps hands around in a vow to strive to gain with its world class¬ mates a worthy record and an endur¬ ing name.

During its thirty years of life, it has spread all over the Union. It has chapters in all the colleges and universities of the South, and is rap¬ idly extending into the other portions of the country. It has always held a prominent place in the Greek World, among its distinguished members being Jeff Davis. The chapter of K - at the University of Arkansas is no ex¬ ception to the rule. Founded in 1890, its growth has been steady, and now, at the end of its eighth year of existence, it reckons among its alumni many of the most promising young men of Arkansas. The pioneer of fraternities in Arkansas, it stands high among its fellow-Greeks. and though it has received a large share of college honors, it prides itself more on the brotherly feeling exhibited and maintained between its members.

Lexington, Ya., in December. 1S65, soon after General Lee became President of the Institution. There is a persistent, but perhaps, unverifiable tradition in the fraternity, that General Lee took a special interest in the young organization, and influenced the formation of its character, but be this as it may, it is certain that the Order has always pursued a self-reliant, conservative and patriotic course. The ideas and aims of the founders were inspired largely by the circumstances of the time and place; and it was their happy fortune to take as the foundation of their structure principles which must ever command the support of all honest hearts. The badge adopted from the beginning was the shield, the same in form, proportions and lettering that it is to-day. The code of laws, though brief and incomplete in that early day, are now ample and providing for every contingency. Time and experience have added needed provisions, and little by little, the Order has evolved its present elaborate and most efficient system. The organization at present includes 41 Chapters, 39 of which are active, and in the year 96 and ’97, had a total membership of 3,666.

The motives which prompted these young women to form themselves into a society of Greeks were of the highest and it has always been their best effort to live up to them. With the assistance of Mr. Richardson, who is connected with various lodges and is a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity, a constitution and ritual were drawn up. The charter members of this Greek-letter society were Misses Holcomb, ’98, Boles, ’98, Simonds, ’96, Vincenheller. After the constitution and ritual were perfected, the first initiation took place: those initiated were Misses Allen, Beattie. Davis. Remy and Ward. Let it not be thought that these pioneers in the society world of Arkansas found their path all roses; such, we assure you, was not the case. Many a sneer directed at • those fraternity girls ” had to be overlooked. Words of praise seemed to come, but seldom, and only the consciousness of their own unselfish aims and purposes buoyed them on. The badge of the society is a prettily fashioned monogram of the Greek letters X and i2. Through the efforts of Chi Omega, an appropriation was secured from the legislature for the Art department. Now the attractions of the University for Arkansas’ fairer sex have been increased, and there is a flourishing Art class. At the head or this department is Mrs. Rice, who has pursued her studies in art. for the greater part of her life, in Europe. _ At present, there are fifteen undergraduate Chi Omegas in college, all of whom are earnest, sincere, unselfish girls, interested in the welfare of their alma mater and in their fraternity. Besides these, there are two graduate students and Miss Pace, a member of the faculty, and Miss Earle, instructor in English. Last year the Hellenic world gladly received into its midst Delta Phi. a new society. Chi Omega gladly extends the hand ot fellowship to such a worthy society of Greeks. May all the blessings of the gods rest upon their heads. Chi Omega feels that she owes much ot her success to the interest and kindly feeling which that august bodv, the faculty, has ever shown her. Also she has always been treated with the highest respect and consideration by each and every-fraternity in the b niversity of Arkansas. She has endeavored to profit by the mistakes made in the past and earnestly hopes that thev may be few and far between in the future. 81 COLORS—Cardinal and Straw YELL—Iliro, Hiro, rah. rah, rah!

I HE 19th of March, 1897, marked the advent of the youngest fraternity in the University of Arkansas—the formal debut of Delta Phi. The day was one of the loveliest, prophetic of the sweetness and happiness to come. The cloudless sky unfurled from zenith to horrison, the true, pure, heavenly blue—the chosen color of the new Sorority. What a happy omen! and Greeks believe in omens, you know. That evening the girl of Delta Phi gave a most brilliant reception, entertain¬ ing the Faculty and all the Greek world of the University. Each guest went awav wearing a red, red rose, and a little knot of blue. The session of ’97-’9S opened most favorably for Delta Phi, though many of her girls were far away. Our graduate ot ’97 fortunately, we have with us, and the record she ha already made for herself in the busy world, is a matter of pride to us. We hear frequently from our loyal and loving absent ones, who are winning praise for themselves and for us, in their chosen work. And so may our bond of union prove perenial. A goodly number of new names and bright faces we have welcomed into Delta Phi—picked tudents. chosen because they are lovable, bright and honorable. But our Sorority is decidedly conservative, and our standard of selection so high that we have hastened slowly in extension. The social life of the Sorority is one of unalloyed pleasure. Initiations, spreads, and other necessary incidentals are carried out with joyous enthusiasm. One of the most charming social functions of the year was a reception tendered the Delta Phis and some of their friends, by Misses Cravens and Davis, on All-Hallow e’en. Whenever we meet together there is plenty of merriment, plenty of jest , plenty or laughter and good spirits. Brief though our existence has beeen, it has proved singularly happy. At the time of this writing we have not celebrated our first anniversary, but are looking forward in joyous anticipation to a Greek Symposium, now in preparation for our approaching birthday. While we realize that social relations not only give grace and charm of manner, but form and cement lasting friendships, vet we hold that there is another and higher purpose to be striven for. The true fraternity idea—the paramount object—is to develop and enrich the whole nature. In this direction we have reason to justify self-congratulation. Our government is comprehensive: our homogeneity marked; and our meetings are conducted with a degree of dignity and decorum surprising in a girPs fraternity. Though no systematic effort has been made in our meetings toward literary work, the reading of Sophocles’ Antigone proved so enjoyable that we were tempted to delve further, though somewhat at random, into the fascinating realm of Hellenic mythical lore. This work has been not only recreative, but instructively interesting as well: so much so, indeed, that we have planned for next session a definite course in Greek Literature and Art. 85 “ Thus far our fortune keeps an onward course, And we are graced with wings of victory.” a local onoiuni YELL — Ta ra loo, Ta ra lool Hi hippi hi 1 True ' blue, sky blue.

The Shakespeare Club is composed of students from the advanced classes in Elocution, and is ably directed by Miss Jessie Lee Cravens, instructor in that department. A number of plays, including The Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, King John, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, and Julius Caesar, have been studied; and from many of these, scenes and character studies have at different times been given with marked success. In June, 1897, an adaptation from The Taming of the Shrew, embodying the thread from that sparkling comedy, was successfully presented, with Miss Katherine Barry as the star. This was her first appearance in a Shakespearean role, and her friends were delighted and astonished at her histrionic ability. Mr. Wesley Parker, of Mot Springs, sustained the character of Petruchio with a fine dash and vigor not often exhibited by an amateur. Mr. James Mitchell, of Little Rock, as Baptista, acquitted himself with dignity and grace in the difficult part of father to the wayward Kate. The entire production was pronounced a success and richly deserved the praise it called forth. Last year marked a decided advance in the work of the class in dramatics. The ideal play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was presented entire, with simple but most artistic stage setting. The cast was as follows, and truly it was a play well fitted: Theseus, Duke of Athens. Mr. Wm. H. Rattenbury Egeus, Father to Hermia. Mr. Hugh Patterson Lysander. . Mr. Lee Derrick Demetrius. Mr. Fred Vining Philostrate, Master of Revels . Mr. Vol Boatright Quince, a Carpenter . Mr. L. A. Fitzpatrick Snug, a Joiner. Mr. F. A. Tolle Flute, a Bellows Mender . Mr. W. L. Goodwin Bottom, a Weaver. Mr. D. W. Taylor Snout, a Tinker . Mr. G. C. Abernathy Starveling, a Tailor. Mr. E. Howell Hippolyta. Queen of the Amazons. Miss Irene Burgess Hermia. in Love with Lysander. Miss Kate Patterson Helena, in Love with Demetrius . Miss Katherine Barry Oberon. King of the Fairies. Mr. Frank Johnston Puck, or Robin Goodfellow. Miss Charlie Gallaway Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth, and Other Fairies, and Attendants Mr. Dan Taylor distinguished himself as Nick Bottom. His scenes with the crew of rude mechanicals provoked a world of mirth, and his encounter with the fairy band elicited round after round of applause. The mischief-making Puck was never more daintily portrayed than by Miss Charlie Gallaway. Her clear and beautiful voice, her vivid expression and petite grace were well suited to a captivating impersonation of that merry wanderer of the night. Miss Virginia Isbell was radiantly lovely as Titania, while Mr. Frank Johnston graced the kingly part of Oberon as if to the fairy manner born. They led a frolic band of those . . . u Fairies that do run By the triple Hecate’s team From the presence of the sun. Following darkness like a dream,” flower crowned and clad in woodland green. Titania’s bower, leaf- carpeted and quite over-canopied with tangled vines and starry blooms, was a fairy dream made visible for one brief night to wondering mortals. The lovers, innocent of fairy interfer¬ ence in their fate, bore out their parts with charming naturalness. The entire presen¬ tation was arranged and carried out in a most artistic manner, and the audience manifested their appreciation and delight by rapt attention and frequent outbursts of applause . The lines were delivered with such clearness and melody, the acting was so spirited, the Shake¬ spearean costumes sat so gracefully upon the youthful figures, that it was hard to realize these were but amateurs. The classes have in preparation for this year the merry comedv of Twelfth Night. If we may judge by the past—and what criterion so safe—June, ’9S, has another treat in store, “ And may we all be there to nee. " The balws pearea 11....

He was a new cadet—verv new. The rev- eranjce with which he looked at the officers who passed him indicated that. Pres¬ ently a dapper youth, with bright new corporal chevrons adorning his coat, approach¬ ed him. He recognized the man for whom he was wait¬ ing—the master of his awk¬ ward squad: He accosted him respectfully: “Sav, I want you to tell me if you have charge of us fellows all the year.” ••No,” replied the recent corporal, with a condescend¬ ing smile. “Why ?” 4 ‘Well.” said the cadet, apparently much relieved, “I thought that if you were I ought to be on my good be¬ havior while you were around if I ever expected to get promoted. You see you passed me on the street the other day when I was smoking a cigarette, and I thought perhaps I had given you a bad impression.” Mr. HriE (during a war discussion)—Well, who has the best navy in the United States, anyhow ? Miss Pace —Mr. Horner, where does this quotation occur ? Horner —It is found in a letter written bv Thucydides to Pope. That the frequent meta¬ phors that appear in our language are capable of var¬ ious and sundry interpreta¬ tions was demonstrated one day in the Soph. English. A member of this class had read in his literature that ‘‘Lowell gave his own por¬ trait” in his “TabTe for Critics.” On being asked if Lowell published his name with this work, he replied: “No, but he had them put in a photograph of himself. Mitchell (in economics) —Now, a legislator would do so and so. Jeffers (knowingly)—No he wouldn’t, professor, Mr. Mitchell is wrong. Mitch—I beg the gentle¬ man’s pardon. I was think¬ ing of an honest legislator. A promising Sophomore was heard to say recently, “I ell you what, I think Rud- yard Kippling is going to be the genius of this century; he thinks exactly as I do.” Miss Pace —Who was the founder of the stoics? Mitch—K eno, ma ' am. In English History Why was Henry VIII. called “Blue Beard,” and why was he o popular with the ladies ? Student —Well. I can’t tell you. professor, unless it was because he was “red headed.” ' I n In Constitutional History Prof. —Mr. Pittman, what is your given name? P.—Pittman. Prof.— Well, what is ‘‘Charlie?” P.—That is my maiden name. In Ethics The class was discussing pleasures and pains. Dr. B asks Mitchell if he ever found any¬ thing in toothache except pain. Mitchell remarks that he never had tooth¬ ache in his life. Dr. B.—“O! fortunate Adolescens!” wn In Creels Prof.— Mr. Hawthorne, what does Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta mean? Hawthorne— Maid of Athens, ere we part. Miss Pace —Mr. Horner, what is the force of “only” in this sentence: “They were the only ones who stopped at the summit of the hill .” Horner—I guess it means that the others went up higher. Mr. NichOLLS (translating in German) — The harper then executed a piece of music. Dr. Mexke —Mr. Richardson, how do you obtain the specific heat of iron ? Richardson —Well, you take the temper¬ ature of the room and put it in hot water. Miss Pace —Mr. Ross, who was Ceres? Ross—I’m not right sure, but I believe she was the goddess of corn fields. 128 Not an Unexpected Result The class in English 0 was discussing the various changes that English words had un¬ dergone since the time of Chaucer. Prof. Willis —“What did vertu be¬ come ?” Bright Student— “Virtue sir.” Prof. Willis —“Well, and what did the maim and liqueur become”? Bright Student (quickly) — “Drunk!!” A Difficult Question The class in economics had drifted around to the discussion of the expediency and justice involved in the much mooted question as to whether saloons should be licensed in Fayette¬ ville or the drug stores be allowed to hold on to their handsome monopoly. The professor startled H—, who had evi¬ dently been “out with the boys” the night be¬ fore and was peace fully nodding, bv the ques¬ tion, “Did you get the point, Mr. II— ?” II—straightened up and replied: “O, yes; ves, sir.” The Perennial Joker—“Did 1 understand Mr. II— to sav he got the ‘point’ or the ‘pint,’ professor? The class was discussing a man who, dur¬ ing his official residence at a place, was assas¬ sinated. Prof. Willis —Miss Holcomb, what hap¬ pened to him while he was in this place? Miss Holcomb (absently) — He resigned his position. Prof.- is noted for his free transla¬ tions, but this leads them all: Catullus, 51, 9.—“The flame of love trickles down through all my joints.” The rl Department According to a bill passed by the legislature in the session of ' 97, the Art Department was added to the University. Mrs. Jennie Delonev-Rice is at the head of this department. She is a native of Arkansas, and after having studied in the principal art schools in America, she spent two years abroad, attending the Beaux Arts, Delacleuse and Julien Ateliers Art Schools in Paris, France. She has won her distinction as an artist throughout the United States and Europe; was exhibitor at the Atlanta Exposition, at New Orleans and Chicago. Her paintings can be found in many of the leading cities of the United States. The following branches are taught in this department: Oil Painting, Water Colors, Tapestry, Pastel, China Painting, Crayon, Charcoal, Pencil, Pen and Ink Drawing, Cast, Still-Life, and Life Models. Special attention is given to industrial arts and designing. 129 Primer Hi Wessons Lesson I. C-O, CO: E-D. ED CO-ED O, see the Co-ed. Is she not fair? No; she is not—decidedly not.

U., and no more than a hun- ' A P f f dred years ago, there lived, existed— I Ll vl no, fourished, that is the word—a professor. This professor was re- O ' y A Lr nowned both for his sound sense and U.±J.Aj for his unbounded enthusiasm for certain lines of work. He was very enthusiastic, and was proud of being so: in fact, he was one of those rare characters who glory in being called cranks. A favorite maxim of this professor ran thus: “No revolution was ever accomplished, no reform ever achieved, no great invention ever made, without a crank.” It has become popular, in this age of cynicism and worldli¬ mindedness, to laugh at the crank. It has become fashionable to affect to despise any whol e-hearted zeal for a cause, meritorious or otherwise. The man who, setting his face toward some predeter¬ mined object, works toward that object through the discouragement of failure, is designated as a crank, which has come to be a word of reproach on the lips of the unthinking. True it is that there are some types of the genus crank whose peculiarities have developed in such directions and to such an ex¬ tent as to render them extremely obnoxious. But these form rather the exception which proves the rule than the rule itself. We may consider all cranks as belonging to one of two classes, which we may designate, though the choice of names is not very happy, as offensive and philanthropic cranks. To the class of offen¬ sive cranks belong anarchist leaders, conspirators against the public peace, and so on. To the philanthropic class belong such as have directed their enthusiasm into more useful paths, such as great in¬ ventors, promoters of fresh air funds, etc. We may also look upon all cranks as having one of two origins. A crank is either formed so by nature, or by external influences and surroundings. Generally both of these causes have something to do with it. The external influences in a majority of cases are those re¬ sulting from a corrupt state of society or politics, personal misfor¬ tunes, or those of friends, and continual meditation thereon. Vet, mark this fact, the crank is looked upon with disapproval only so long as he is unsuccessful. A man may be as much of a fanatic as he pleases, all he needs is success, and he becomes a hero. A great deal also depends upon the cause championed, and the place occupied by it in the public mind. If it be a popular cause, i the crank who supports it becomes a genius; if unpopular, or on the losing side, he is sure to be covered with opprobrium. The crank who killed Morat is a saint to-day: the crank who killed Lincoln is a traitor. Perhaps it would be well to cast a reflective eye over the small portion of man’s history with which we are familiar, and endeavor to trace the lineage of the crank as we know him to-day. And. truly, his ancestry is a long and noteworthy one. diversified, as every family tree is, in the manner of men it has produced, and the ex¬ tent of their successes or failures. The line extends farther and farther back, like a thread of scarlet, through authentic history, and wherever it crops out some event of note is sure to crop out along with it. Farther and farther back it goes, and even in the gloom of antiquity, amid the shades of tradition, we catch its gleam. About the first crank we have any record of was Cain, the father of murderers. I do not conceive that Cain was a crank by nature. But constant brooding over his fancied wrongs absorbed all lesser thoughts, and made him one indeed and in truth. Here is the ori¬ ginal out-cropping of the crank, and here. too. is the first great crime. The inference is plain. Coming on down the stream of ages, we find another promi¬ nent example in the patriarch, Noah. Noah had a firm conviction that humanity would be destroyed bv flood, and with the true in¬ stinct of the crank stuck to his belief through the fiercest of criti¬ cism and the most galling of ridicule. Here appears another great event. Humanity might all have been drowned without the aid of a crank, but the all-important eight could not well have been saved without one. Demosthenes was a crank. He was born with the disadvantages of wealth and position, but with the determination and bull-dog tenacity of the true crank. He had multiplied difficulties to over¬ come—no one is ever a successful crank without them. The tale of his grotesque attempts and failures, of his repeated attempts, of his Herculean efforts, and of his final successes, is but the history of a typical crank. And as a result, we have the wonderful orations, which to this day breathe afresh the fire and zeal of a life lived over two thousand years ago. Alexander was a crank on the subject of conquering the world. Julius C:esar was a crank on army discipline. Columbus was a crank about the northwest passage. Diogenes was a crank, and Socrates, though of a different stripe, was no less truly one. Each of these names heads a page in the history of the world. Passing on to history of a later day, another example meets our eye. Martin Luther, the author of the colossal movement of the Protestant reformation, was one of the crankiest cranks, if we may be allowed the expression, that the world has ever seen. Naturally of an inquiring and meditative disposition, he was thus prepared for the developments of the essential traits of the crank. He was placed in an atmosphere of superstition and curruption in high places. The Christian religion had degenerated into a mere species of idolatry. In an honest and thinking mind these conditions of necessity produced a revolution of feeling, from which, as from a fostering soil, sprang the new idea and a zeal for the newly discovered principles. In examining the popular demonstrations which occurred in England so many times before the crown was brought to its present level, we find that with almost no exception each was headed by a crank. A great many of these movements failed, or were nipped in the bud, but still the general trend of all was to the same end, the enlightenment of man and the establishment of humane principles of government. The only difference was in the degree of success attained bv each. Those that succeeded were eulogized as reforms, while those that failed were stigmatized as rebellions. In our own day, in our own age of realism, the influence of the philanthropic crank, though more quietly, not heralding itself by steel and powder smoke, is none the less irresistibly making itself felt. What is our wizard of electricity, our Thomas Edison, but a crank ? What are all our inventers, philanthropists, etc., but cranks of the very best brand ? Who but cranks are evangelizing the world, for who else have the tenacity and singleness of purpose necessary in missionary work ? Then, honor to the noble brotherhood of cranks! We see them pass in procession, some branded with the mark of Cain, some crowned with wreaths of laurel, some dragging heavily by in chains, some borne aloft by the adoring crowd. Yet a word: not every failure is a failure in reality. Through repeated failure success may at last be obtained. Perhaps some of these, whose names are sunk in infamy, have only been building a ladder upon which others may rise to receive the crown. The world of to-day is only too indifferent, too lacking in red-blooded zeal, too prone to let progress standstill, while each digs away in his own individual niche,. Let us not, then, discourage the crank, that much needed member of society, but rather strive to turn his crankiness into channels of use and beauty, instead of leaving it go into forbidden places, gathering of filth and sediment, until it becomes a yellow torrent which leaves desolation in its trail. O, that all men might be led to see the beauty of God’s gospel of peace. Then each individual would be an enthusiast but an enthusiast for all things true and good and beautiful. Wars would cease, strife be stilled, and the millenium transform this crime-cursed earth into a paradise of cranks. I ' S A Ballad of the Bell I. She wa a maid with hair of gold And eyes so deep and grey; He a cadet, both young and bold— The officer of the dav. II. A dainty ’kerchief, trimmed with lace, Came floating down the stair; He picked it up and left his place To find its owner fair. III. H e gave it to her as she passed.

Across the soul of the cadet A wave of horror swept; lie teared the period was gone— Had parsed him while he slept. VII. He cleared a leap of half a block And seized upon the string. And pausing not to heed the clock. He gave the bell a ring. VIII. And then confusion dire and deep Came tumbling round his head. And while he stood as one asleep. The lieut. came up and said: “I fear your names my list must swell To old reg. fifty’s tune: 1 . But worse than that, you’ve rung the bell Just half an hour too soon.” (3 Recollection How dear to my heart are the scenes of the drill ground When notes from the bugles recall them to view. The long marching column that went like a mill round r) And all the rough spots where we puffed and we blew: The grounds of assembly, the armory near them. Where we bound on our fetters and made them to shine. The roasts of the captain (we learned not to fear them And even the blunders we made in the line. P aeh Numbers I T was a Saturday afternoon in September. I sat alone in mv g room, busily engaged in straightening up some accounts, while the gentle rain was refreshing the parched earth and the autumn winds murmured in the tall trees whose foliage was now tinted with variegated hues of yellow and red. As I sat working away, my mind began to wander back to my childhood and I laid aside my papers. In my abstraction, I walked dreamily about the room, giving each article a slight touch, but at length I found myself ascending the stairs to the old attic where many happy days of my childhood had been whiled away. The room was lighted by small, low windows, and to-day, as the sky was curtained by dense, gray clouds, it was unusually dim. In one corner of the room stood an old chest covered with dust. With curiosity I raised the lid and the rusty hinges creaked so loud that I was almost startled. My eves instantly fell upon a mass of books and papers, together with some other things that had been laid away as mementoes. Of these the most conspicuous was a Bible, torn and faded, which was once the comfort of my grand¬ father. The next thing that attracted my attention was a volume of Bunyan’s u Pilgrim’s Progress.” As 1 lifted one article after another out of the chest, each one brought with it a little story from the past. Finally I came to a bundle that had been carefully tied with a red ribbon. With tender hand I loosened the knot and found that they were university magazines upon whose covers the word " Ozark " gleamed in bright red letters. The feelings that came over my soul I cannot express! Sweet memories of my college life were awak¬ ened which time and the busy world had almost erased from my mind. But now, as I sat with the precious bundle in my lap, I was free to reflect, in the silence of the old attic, upon whatever these back numbers might suggest. First of all a magnificent brick building, situated on an elevated green campus, with tall forest trees in its rear, arose and shone in the morning sunlight. From the roof two towers reached upward into the clear blue skv as if aspiring after higher and more noble thoughts than earth affords. I fancied I could see the students trudgingup the long stone walk, ascending the steps and disappearing within the sacred walls of the old University. Some of the familiar faces wore a mischievous smile, characterizing their readiness to “ cut lab.” and violate regulation fifty whenever there was an oppor¬ tunity; while others had the expression of stoic philosophers—they never took time to rest th eir weary brain bv indulging in frivolities. My mind then turned to the most pleasant room in the building, the spacious library, with its countless volumes unfolding the ideas and achievements of all ages. Here we used to assemble to study and read, but frequently we spent our time in conversing with some charming associate. Near the center of the room stood the refer¬ ence desk with the dictionaries and encyclopedias—a post office in disguise for the boys and girls. The class rooms, suggestive of many struggles in the various branches, brought a long train of reflections. The voices of my teachers, who were ever ready to help and encourage me, came to me in reminiscent echoes. Yet among these pleasant memories I thought of hours of agony I had experienced, due to half-learned lessons which resulted from a lecture on the preceding night; how sometimes fortune smiled upon me in that the gong would sound and save me from a terrible blunder caused by guessing. As I turned the mnemonic pages and glanced at the headings, my eves caught sight of u Fraternity Notes” in large type. What a queer sensation seized my heart! The proceedings of these organizations leave a lasting impression upon the barbarian to whom the Greek mysteries are about to be revealed. I fancied I could see the goat upon which many a poor barbarian had ridden at extra- ordinarv speed, caused the stimulant C. S. I thought of many terrible things accompanying the initiation; of victims fainting, branded foreheads, sprained ankles, shaved heads, etc. My reflections were interrupted by the darkness that was begin¬ ning to enshroud the earth. A second later, the striking of the old clock reminded me that I was not a student but that I had launched my ship and was sailing upon broad waters and that I must contend with the mighty storms by myself, for there is no kind teacher to pilot me through the difficulties that now arise. Experience must be my teacher. Never had messages been sweeter than those the old magazines brought from the past. They had transferred me, for a short time, to youth, the spring time of life, when flowers and sunshine make the heart happy. With a feeling of mingled pleasure and pain, I tied up the bundle and laid it away in the old chest. The reflections in which I was wrapped had permitted my soul to leave a world of toil and trouble and to experience a life that knew no care. I now realized that the life of the active world was far different from what I had imagined in my youth, and a tear stole down my cheek as I left the old attic and went down to my room to finish reckoning my accou nts. Thank God that our land is dotted with so many institutions of learning and that we have the opportunity of fitting ourselves.for greater usefulness amid surroundings that furnish such pleasant reflections.
