Q meeting of the newly elected class representatives within
All the week of their election, at which time they shall decide
upon the Editor-in-Chief, President and Business Manager of their board. This gives
the men in whom is vested the bulk of the responsibility, and on whom depends
largely the success ofthe volume, an opportunity of compiling material and outlin-
ing the work during the summer vacation while the mind is comparatively free from
studies. Steps were also taken to establish an "Iris Library," to which shall be added each
year two copies of the Iris and as many annuals of sister colleges as the condition of the
Treasury permits. This library to be at the disposal ofthe student body.
After some considerable deliberation it was decided to crown our efforts by having the
board incorporated. The representatives of the Law Department drew up the necessary
articles, and attended to the various business connected with such a step. Not only do the
articles govern the publishing of this book, but also provide for the publication ofa university
periodical, which, it is the ardent hope of the present board will soon be a pleasing reality,
and thus stimulate university spirit, boom athletics and knit still more closely inter-depart-
ment feeling. The Board trusts that the change in the arrangement of several departments of
this volume will meet with the hearty approval of its readers.

History of the Class of Iooo
" T VVAS on the 25th of September, eighteen hundred and ninety-
six, that the history of the class of 1900 began. At eight
o'clock P. M., the opening lecture was given. All that day the
, , corridor of the university was more or less crowded with
"freshmen," who, realizing that an initiation was inevitable
sooner or later, and knowing that delay would be dangerous, organized at
an early hour. The following day we took our " Milk," as is the custom
with all freshman classes.
It took us but a few days to realize that we had " Three Fifteen-Year "
men among us, otherwise known as the class of '99. They were taking a
three-year course, while we were compelled by the State law to remain four
years at the trying ordeal. They had matriculated one year sooner, when
the State law said " Only three years for you, boys, that is, if you are for-
tunate." Vfith the aid of these individuals you may imagine that we felt
a little more muscular, and after a few rushes and tugs ofwar, the juniors
could no longer be considered the champion class in that particular line.
During the remainder of our Freshman year, we slowly but steadily suc-
ceeded in climbing the "Hills " of various sizes and varieties, this task being
comparatively easy to some, to others-well, time will tell.
As Sophomores we had little to say. However, being the first Sopho-
more class ofthe University of Buffalo, and also being pioneers in the study
of Bacteriology, we though! we were quite the fad. In fact we saw " Bugs"
devouring everything in the category, even to the extensive growths of
locks on some of our classmates heads.
Vifhenever representation of our class was needed, we were always at
our post, ready to participate in Athletics, Glee Clubs, etc. As students we
did our duty in every Professors estimation.
In our Junior year we began to realize the meaning' of the words " Col-
lege Spiritf' and thus became a little more interested in class politics. Elec-
tion occupied a little more time than in previous years, but after a struggle
we succeeded in electing oiiicers. During the year we met many new faces'
these having been transferred to us when Uld Niagara laid down her arms.
I Our schedule seemed rather small, and many remarked "1 am not get-
ting rny money's worth." YVhen we were writing on some of the Exams,
all of us seemed to be getting all that belonged to us.
Ifast fall we again assembled in Alumni Hall, for, we hoped, our last
opening lecture as students. lNe were now to enter upon the dignified
Senior course, to come into closer contact with the Faculty, and to look at
Medicine in a more practical way.
As in all previous years, there were rushes and so forth, but being se-
niors, we were supposed not to participate, however, in one event, it was
impossible for us to be merely spectators. The fight continued for several
hours, the " medics " having more points to their credit when the struggle
was stopped, by It'lli0'Hli, we all know. 1
Class election was held this year with more enthusiasm than in our
Junior year. As in all elections, there were two sides to the question, but
vw' finally succeeded in electing a capable set of officers.
During each year we have lost one or more men from our class, who
deemed it proper to leave us, but this year, we parted in a sadder way,
with one ofthe most popular men, not only of his class, but of the entire
University, YVILLIAM O. NIILLER. He was our first Class President, a most
excellent student, and bade fair to be an honor man.
Now and then we hear "just a word" from the Athletic Department,
and I am proud to say that the captain of U. B. Football team of'99, is a
prominent member of our class.
W'e are now beginning to speculate upon what the future may have in
store for us. Rte have the honor and advantage of being the first class
graduated from our College which has had four years of carefully planned
instruction. Having representatives of various Counties in the States, and
of various States in the Union, let each and every one of us, wherever we
may be cast, strive to maintain the dignity due us as professional men,
and also endeavor to reflect credit and honor upon those men, who have so
faithfully labored striving to prepare us for the smooth and also the rough
path which all will have to travel in the vague future.
N THE final year of our college course, when constant endeavor and fond hopes are
about to be crowned with success, when thoughts of a future, with paths as fair
and smooth as any might wish, intrude themselves into the prosaic life of the stu-
dent, then the class of nineteen hundred is forced to say farewell to one of its mem-
bers-the one who could least be spared, whose future seemed brightest, the universal
Ulilliam O. Miller.
A deep gloom not to be dispellecl was cast over every one in the University of Buffalo at
the word that " Bill Miller " was seriously ill. But it seemed impossible that he could be taken
from us. Loving friends and classmates kept faithful, tireless vigil through the days and
nights of suffering, yet even May had little thought that the Angel of Death was among them.
Then, like a thunderbolt. came the announcement that he was dead. Patient, thoughtful, self-
sacrificing throughout the short period of his illness, our friend exemplified the highest virtues
that give nobility to the human character.
In college, as in other walks oflife " we have two classes of men"-says Matthew Arnold.
" On the one hand, there is the average man, who eddies about, eats, drinks, loves and hates,
then dies, having striven blindly, but achieved nothing. On the other hand, there is the strong
soul, tempered with fire, not like the men of the crowd but fervent, heroic and good-the helper
and friend ofmankindf' He whose memory we mourn to-day, while his life here was too
short to prove himselfa second Thomas Arnold, belonged to that group of strong souls who
are destined to become leaders among men.
WILLIAM OSBORNE MILLER was born in Rochester, New York, October 3Oth,1875. He
received his common school and academic education in his native city. In September, 1896,
he began the study of medicine at the University of Buffalo. Early in his college life we recog-
nized his ability, choosing in him our first class President, for the session of 1896-'97. From
his Freshman year he was a member of S2 T lb Fraternity, and the Judges, showing himself at
every step a true fraternity man. I
Among all the earnest workers on life's rugged pathway, there is none who accomplishes
more for the betterment and advancement of mankind than he, who, by his cheerful and kind
nature is able to banish gloom and sorrow. Such was our friend. His bright and happy na-
ture was one that dispelled sorrow and sadness. On meeting him, the dark side of life was
forgotten and for the moment one lived only in the sunshine of his pleasing nature.
We deeply mourn the loss of one whom all had learned to love and honor, yet we must
bow our heads in humble submission to One of whom it is said:-
. " He nothing does nor suffers to be done
But what we would ourselves
Could we but see through the events of things
As well as He."
The True Ph sician
E STANDS the type of man whom men admire
The true physician-Whose daily acts inspire
The human heart with gratitude and love.
No sordid calling his, it stands above
The avaricious strife of busy niarts.
His truest pay is-found in grateful hearts:
He brings the tender babe into the lightg
The path offeeble age he renders bright.
The parents' anxious hearts with joy beat wild
As Death's reluctant hand gives up their child 1
The millionaire he oft restores to health-
More precious far than all his hoarded wealth.
The workman who, from toil has failed at length
With skillful treatment he recalls to strength.
All classes and all castcs he treats the same,
The very poor and those of greatest fame.
From life's beginning to its very end
To all mankind he is their truest friend.
His sleep is broken, his recreation small,
At any time he answers duty's call.
The winter's cold, the surnn1er's torrid heat,
Nor rain, nor snow, nor storm, nor sleet
Deter him from the dying sick one's bed,
Whence most, perchance, in deathly fear have fled
Contagion's awful atmosphere and touch,
Nor hesitates to do and dare so much.
Oh, fellow students of this senior year,
About to enter a so high career,
May high ideal always iill our mind-
Our solemn duties to all mankind.

5 HY-yes-Grab.-go ahead and get elected. I'll help you with
'JL your prophecy "-said Thomas. " Mee-too I " chirped I-Ieim.
"XVell-you can depend upon me, as sure as my name is Iutzi.
I'll do all I can for you, and besides-I can swing the whole
Lockport delegation into line." So with these assurances, I
boldly entered the field and after weeks of severe campaigning, succeeded in
I-Iow I swelled up with pride!
I was up bright and early next morning. I hurriedly glanced over the
E.lfjJ'I'0.9.Y, then the C0zu'z'nr-latit neither had my picture. How strange!
Ilfhat a chance they lost! But I didn't mind. I knew everybody else would
All went well until I was informed by the editor that my prophecy
must be in by a certain time. Then I set about to Corral my alleged friends.
S0 one bright evening I invited lVIessrs. Thomas, Iutzi, Heim and Mc-
Guire to my rooms-thinking I had the literary cream of the Class-and
after carefully locking the door and barring the windows, I told them that
this was the evening when I was going to begin my prophecy. Everybody
seemed happy and everything cheerful until I announced the object of my
invitations, but now it seemed as if the whole room became dark and cold
and an almost deathlike silence reigned. But Thomas, always equal to the
emergency, seemed to master the situation. Stepping up to me and placing
his hands on my shoulders in a fatherly way, he said!-"You must let us
start this for you, Grab, you see, you're not much of a literary genius."
So I sat down, greatly fatigued from my effort to look intelligent.
Thomas stood up, and in a solemn voice said- -" How will it do to be-
gin this way? Sh-shlEverybody! One cold winter evening as I was sit-
ting before the open grate and the wind was howling through the trees-'
Iutzi's teeth chattered, I-Ieim wrapped his coat around the stove, lVIac
roared, and I went out after a bucket of coal. Leon, classical Leon, poeti-
cal Leon, came to the rescueg he could tell us what to say. VVith a graceful
stride he made his way to the center of the room, where, with hand uplifted
and thoughtful face upturned to the heavens for inspiration, he began-U It
was a calm summer's day in june, the heavens were as blue as 'Beauty's'
eyes, the soft balmy breezes wafted scents of clover from the distant fields,
and all was fair as--." Poor fellow, he's dead now-he lost his life for
the sad attempt. Alas! It was the will of the crowd. I couldn't stop their
murderous onslaught. . .
Then I managed to say a word and-they listened. Prophets always
dream, and then wake up and remember it all, and I wanted to have a
dream. But my voice was drowned. This time it was McGuire-UGO on
down to old Niagara, perhaps the ghosts of past glories "-" Oh-go-on
Grab, give us your idea. Don't let 'em drown you "-from Heim. So I
meekly got up and explained-"You see, boys, I've been reading up and
prophets always dream, and ifI can't dream, I won't be prophet! "
Well, my " signal-service literary set A' became disgusted and left, and I
heard Thomas say to Heim after I had closed the door-" Huh, I'm sorry I
couldnlt give him a chin blow so he could have his dream I If he'd only
kept quiet with his old dream, we could have finished it easy."
No w-here I am alone, thoroughly disgusted with myself and prophesy-
ing. IfI only had the 65 cents back I spent at jaeger's dairy the day I was
elected, they could keep their old office.
But they were gone, and I could do as I pleased-so I DREAMED.
'Twas the morning after commencement. I awoke late in the day from
a pleasant dream, perhaps induced by the champagne CPD of the Alumni
Banquet. As I raised my weary head, my dream came back to me, and
suddenly inspired with energy, I rose and jotted it down hastily for your
benefit, my friends.

eyed brunette whom he captured from all the rest of us.
Dr.Jones, disgusted with medicine, obtained an appointment as boss
of the scoopers at the docks, which implies good patronage to his Raines
Law Hotel. Schooners, 3c.!

Office and Main St. Poor Boy! Dr. Crego and the State are caring for
Frank Ransom, M. D., through a political pull has acquired the govern-
ment position of inspector at the stock yards for Lumpy jaw.

Cabin, and is booked far ahead for engagements at Akron, Lonelyville, Lip-

maliciously used the skin ofa man's face, and as a result the lady grew a
Dr. Hibbard became an eminent surgeon, Cas we all expected from his
prolonged researches in the mysterious realms of the top floorl but his eyes
failed. Recently he has been elected president of a young ladies' seminary
in Havana, Cuba, and as he Hnds it necessary to speak the Spanish lan-
guage, the pupils are teaching it to him by the conversational method. He
blesses the day those eyes gave out!
It was with a sad heart that we bade farewell to Dr. H. Ralph VVillse as
he was embarking to Honolulu the morning after he received his diploma.
I can see those cannibals making bouillon of Ralph.
Bill Armstrong, M. D., has attained the honor of the Presidency of the
Hawthorne Athletic Club, and has a number of bouts scheduled for the
coming month. He is delighted that he has succeeded in bringing together
Kid Swift, the Penitentiary Cyclone, and Babe Pitkin, the Hill Gang Terror,
for a ten-round go, with four-pound gloves. He hopes this will prove a
rare treat to his patrons.
Cholly Crance, who, during his last year at college was the obstetrician

Dr. Eli Shriver has taken advantage of the lectures given on intussus-
ception. By means of a suction pump, he intussuscepts the intestines up
into the mouth, and when the appendix comes into view, he snips it off and
then has the patient swallow the intestinal canal. You see, it is very sim-
ple, only three steps in the operation-lst., Unswallowg 2d., Snippingg 3d.,
Reswallow. Another triumph for the American Surgeon.
H. R. Brownlee, M. D., has become famous as a surgeon. He considers

Hello, ur abies
Tune-Hello, Aly Baby
There is a man called Stockton, and heltalks on lung,
With emphysema we have all been blest,
Our ears to this have listened till they all have rung,
We want to cry to him, " Give us a rest."
Every single Wednesday does our "long" jones quiz,
And on Friday, too, at five, we get in line,
To listen to his Lyon roar and hear him Hzz.
For that's just what he's doing all the time.
Hurrah for U. B., three cheers for U. B.,
U. B., forever more.
Fill all our hearts' desire.
Send us a " Sheep " by Wire.
If Mann should pluck us this thought has struck us,
That we'll be left alone, for our sins we'll atone
No Diploma we'll own.
Our Park, he holds a clinic that we all go to,
He cuts and carves without a bit of waste:
When bugs don't act to suit hin1 he knows what to do,
Hejust slaps on a lot ofbrewer's yeast.
Doc Smith, he is a gentleman, we all like him,
And Parmenter, he shows us what to do,
On Mondays when We get a chance to amputate a limb,
He stands by us until he sees us through.
Hello! Van Peymal, Hurrah! Van Peymal
Hello! our bald-head man.
Lord help us on exam.,
For you disagree with Mann.
Crockett we love you- we've passed above you,
Though you are not alone, she still is with you,
And sticks by you evermore.
Have you heard of Doctor Wende and his foghorn voice?
He'll take you for a little Sunday trip,
He will show you scabs and lesions till you rejoice,
But for Anglo-Saxon he don't give a flip.
Oh, Doctor, Doctor Eli, you make us tired,
With digitalis and your Schott bath rhyme.
We know that you can't4 help it, you surely are inspired,
But we regret that you steal away our time.
M ann is a daisy--he makes us crazy,
Talking forever inore.
His clinics are a farce,
Patients seem to be scarce.
King is a beauty--he does his duty,
Getting those Babies through: so Babies hail him,
He is a friend to you.
There's one who talks onbabies and what makes them grow,
And if they cry gives orangejuice to drink,
His l'l2L11'lC is Pinkie Snow. and his hair resembles tow,
And he parts it in the middle, " I don't think."
Now, Putnam is a nervous man, who talks on nerves,
Le Breton follows him with stately tread,
He rushes in his patients, and everyone observes
That this helps much to swell his little head.
Billy our baby-Billy our pipe rnan,
Billy our red-hot boyg
You say that we'll soon know '
The symptoms which you show. K,
If we forget it, well welll regret it, X'
Then we will call on you, Oh! Billy-telephone-
And tell us what we'll do.
There's the smiling Doctor Cary, a thoroughbred is he,
On diagnosis he cannot be beat 1
Hels sure to be the winner when doctors disagree,
And always picks the horse that gets the heat.
Doctor Crego, can you tell us whatls on our inind ? .
By what delusions have we been misled?
Don't say that it's paresis or mania you find,
But only lack of ballast in the head.
Hello! you Doctors. Hello! you pill-men.
Hello! you faculty.
We sadly say good-bye,
On this you niay rely.
That we will miss you, and will not curse you,
When we bid you adieu.
So Doctors write us, and say we're one ofyou.

Devoted to factions, alas, alas!
We've fought each other for oflice and place
And felt very sore when we lost in the race.
We're never contented with what we have got
And never have known what we wanted, I wot.
YVe,ve sent in petitions with might and with main
To the wildest of thoughts we've given full rein.
The Faculty's heart we have tried to touch
But it doesn't think that we're such a much.
But we will soon be through the mill
When we have shown we fill the hillg
We'l1 soon be scattered far and wide
No longer by each others side 5
Then let's determine to call it off
Let's no more at each other scoffg
Let's extend the Faculty our multiple hand
As a smiling and deferential band
VVith mutual good will and harmonious cheer
Let's close the book of the Senior Year.

History of the Class of IQOI
"" QQQIIIQQQQ """ Qffilggfl "" l HE historian is again called upon to record the deeds of that
most illustrious class-the class of 1901.
i Its ability for hard work, general athletics, rushes, reci-
l tations, etc., has often been demonstrated.
...... Its valor is conceded by all.
Its discretion as "the better part of valorw is also vvell
developed as Hall and Hooper can testify.
"Our Chauncey" endeared himself to us at the time when we demon-
strated our "discretion" by standing by the above-mentioned boys and
rescuing them from " durance vile."
He would do it again too, if necessary, " un-else " l'm mighty mistaken.
Our professors have often remarked that We are the first class of the
century in deed as well as in fact.
Our "unity and unanimity H are undoubtedly great factors in the pro-
duction of this LZ6S'fCZG7'f!fZL77Z and if maintained will place us high in the ranks
of the vvorldls great physicians. But We must not allow our successful past
and brilliant future to make us in the slightest degree conceited. In the
first place, because such a course would not be consistent with true great-
ness, and secondly, because to produce a class which would close the work
of one century with honor, and begin the next auspiciously, required men of
Rather let us consider ourselves the fortunate instruments of Fate and
In reviewing the past our embryonic college days come most prominent-
ly before meg especially the time when with a bone in one hand, and an
anatomy in the other, we strenuously endeavored to unravel the mysteries
of our physical make-up. Therefore, we cfm and do extend our sympathy to
those who are now passing through this ordeal of fire and water, and trust
that they will emulate our fortitude which wif not genius is the best pos-
sible substitute for it."
The records of the University for the year just passed will show that we
tried more examinations than any other two classes put together, a record
unapproached by any previous class. Isn't that conclusive proof of our
ability to do hard Work? I take pleasure in adding that the results were
of a particularly gratifying nature.
But the subject which filled us with the most concern proved to be a
bogie man. Or, perhaps it was because the professor with the " risus sar-
donicus " was good to us. He certainly was good to us, and we earnestly
hope that his recent affliction will be as good to him.
Our professors require a large corps of assistants to enable them to
satisfy our ambition to gain wisdom. Occasionally we make use of live
pathological specimens, but usually before the professor, whom we highly
respect, arrives. Our appreciation for him can best be illustrated by the
fact that when an assistant attempts to hold a quiz, the class is " conspic-
uous by its absence."
Our bi-weekly pilgrimages to the E. C. H. are made with great eclat.
'We go there to answer " present" to the roll call, and hear Dr. Rochester
bufzzj--well upon conditions likened unto the wind soughing through a
grove on a dark nightg or, musical sounds heard best on inspiration just
below the line of the lungs-posteriorly.
YVe are marked on a scale of ten in Therapeutics. Some "wise guy"
made the unkind remark that they stood for the best nap and snore in one
hour. Be that as it may there is a glorious aggregation of "9'sl' and
l should be pleased to record many incidents of interest to the various
professors, but space forbids. I will say, however, that we will stand by
them to the finish, and hope to be worthy of their efforts.
During the early part of the year many orators presented their views in
regard to the beginning of the new century. Many conversions to the faith
that the new does not begin until the old has quite ended, have resulted.
Strange, isn't it? What an effect oratory will have on the human mind!
The campaign before class election waxed furious this year. Many
charges, counter-charges, Hank movements, etc., were made showing clear-
ly to the casual observer that here is material for great executive places if
A certain member of our class desirous of emulating the example of our
professor of physiology, dared to defy the law for homeless dogs, and pro-
ceeded to demonstrate the wonders of their anatomy to younger genera-
tions, ante morzfem, but the law is a ruthless monster and nipped his aspira-
tions in the bud.
Our Baltimore representative occasionally attracts attention by testing
the professors' ability and present' ig the ideas of other schools. But
happily such scenes serve only to in 'ease our respect for the professor.
One day last Fall, a verdant Fr shman crept into one of our lectures.
We didn't mind that, in fact, we ar pleased to have under classmen in at-
tendance at our lectures, but thi personification of immaturity listened
just long enough for his hair to displace his cap and then disappeared as if
followed by some avenging spirit. Such actions are disturbing to say the
And now just one word about the Seniors. I would that I might laud
them to the skies, but, alas, their years of experience have availed them
little. Instead of being congenial they are groutchy, and their generosity
has entirely atrophied, so that when some zealous Junior desirous of seeing
and 'ZUZlZ8l'Sffl7HZIilZg, crowds them a little in the clinic, they write a note to the
instructor complaining bitterly. Worthy Seniors, indeed!
' The Ladies! God bless them! Last, but not least, no indeed, not least.
They are the main stay of our aggregation. Three of a kind that will beat
any two pairs that I know of!
Much more might be written of this body of men, of their manifold
abilities in various branches, and of many tales not connected with the col-
lege, but the reader needs no further proof of our power. So without en-
deavoring to lengthen the sketch, I would like to end with the wish that
the future may be as brilliant and successful as the past.

Y E Vx In consideration of the weary and wasted
-jf Juniors, the curtains were drawn and the lights
-w Wi put out. In the darkness sparks of fire could
I. ' occasionally be seen emanating from a remote
7 f corner of the room, caused by the click of the busy wheels in
jf' T , ' Schaefer's Belfry. No sounds disturbed the quiet slumber of
l the juniors save the vociferous " Take that out" of Dr.
Bartow, as "Hard of Hearing Staples " tried vainly to get
a focus on the Artist's Model who was doing a skoliosis
on the canvas for the benefit of the sleepers.
Even Tillman was quiescent. Tucked warmly in his see-more coat
he slumbered peacefully by the side of the fair Mrs. T. His wonderful
whiskers rivaled those of the Great " Oom Paul " and were seconded only
by those of the " Ten-Cent Doctor." "Fair Helen of Troy " on the top row
dreamed sweet dreams of rippling " Brooks 'l and the " Three Ages of
Man." CBy Meyerj
" Stilletto 'l Wixson, in an almost complete coma, wallowed contentedly
in blood up to his neck, while his better half Brady, wrapped in swadling
clothes, was cooing softly to himself " The Sparrow's Lamentf' Cheerful
Getty was putting Trick to sleep with the story of the "Two Chimney
Sweepsf' and Wright and Hall snickered joyously over the stories of " 288 "
and " The Three Eggsf'
Suddenly a reaction took place. The before mentioned "Hard of
Hearing Staples " flashed the calcium light all over himself with the greatest
of agony, dropped a box of slides on the floor, and grunted most beautifully
in an heroic effort to pick them up. Feet were shuffled and kicked all over
the roomy noses were turned toward the skies, and great cries for help
penetrated the darkness of the room, for the only Pohlman had caused the
trouble by removing his shoes.
Peace and quiet soon prevailed again, disturbed only by the gentle
friction rub snore of Harris, also on the top row, "Shamrock" Graney
cheered lustily in his sleep for his favorite yacht, and Eli, in a dreadful
nightmare was serving six months in a pie factory with a muzzle on.
Fiioni the balcony above Phonograph Riley frequently broke loose from the
Land of Nod and gave vent to a long drawn Buzz--, which, according
to his story, is a typical imitation of a canal boat digging its way through
the Rocky Mountains.
Again the silence which had now grown as deep as one of Paterson's
questions, was brokeng ugly sounds fell upon the few listening ears. Blue
colors flashed and sulfurous fumes were smelledg Gols and Darns were
hurled about in a most reckless manner, but the excitement soon quieted
down, for it was only a little scrap between Trick's shirt and Leonard's
Weidmann occupied a front seat where he could ask questions of Bartow
without waking himself. " Oom Paul " with his head hid in a Plaster of
Paris jacket, donated by one of the deans, was trying to reason out why
Kane got fat in some places and not in others. " Speak Fast " Burritt was
trying to raise his record as a conversationalist by saying the alphabet
backwardg while "African Stanley' consoled himself with the knowledge
that there were others who knew nothing of obstetrics. " Never Too Late"
Donovan, as usual, joined the sleepers three minutes before the bell rang,
and took his seat beside " Professional 'l Hooper, who, looking as fierce as
a rabbit in a lettuce patch, was trying to dodge the reflection from Fris-
With the ring' of the bell at 3 P. M., all rise solemnly from their seats,
yawn, stretch, applaud a little and then drag themselves forcibly to the
floor above. Z.

History of the Class of Iooz
8 " HE transformation of a Freshman Medic to a ,Sophomore is
very nearly analogous to the process by which a sculptor
chisels from the rough marble a statue of exquisite beauty.
And, as the quality of the material with which the sculptor
has to work mars or enhances the beauty of the product,
so the quality ofthe Sophomore class depends on its Fresh-
It was early recognized by those capable to judge that this
class had the sterling qualities necessary to success. How well we have
succeeded is sufficient proof to justify their most sanguine expectations.
The lessons of Freshman life we have learned, and as Sophomores it
early became our duty to instill into the minds of the "verdant and unsophis-
ticated Freshmen H certain principles which it was deemed proper to heed
and remember. From their youthful appearance, we inferred that they
were still in an embryonic state, and, as we had no difficulty in inducing
them to imbibe the tluid with which we thought them to be most familiar,
our inference was undoubtedly correct. We regret to say that we found
them to be utterly devoid of good judgment, for they contemplated to
" rush" the Sophs. This attempt we promptly quelled, not deeming it well
for those so young to engage in such violent exercise. VVe wish to compli-
ment them for the thoroughness with which they have retained our early
teachings, for they have been most exemplary since then and have taken
our advice as becomes a Freshman class.
It is a self evident fact that this class is the most progressive in the
history of the University of Buffalo.
Our inimitable Chauncey on all occasions tenders us the most flattering
remarks. Indeed, that we are not conceited is only due to excessive mod-
esty. Our genial Doctor in Practice always desires to have a wide awake
class, and it is seldom necessary for him to enjoin us to " kindly wake that
boy up." '
We furnish our material for surgery clinics, a new regime instituted by
the present Sophomore class for the first time in the history of the Univer-
sity of Buffalo. That one man is the subject in the clinics goes to show
what self-sacrihcing students may do to promote the science of medicine.
We contribute our full share to the success of the Football team, hav-
ing its popular manager a member of the class, and two men on the team.
The class is also well represented at the games.
As is the case with all classes we have not the full number, as class-
mates who matriculated with us at the beginning of the course, some are
at other colleges, others thought a different field more congenial than med-
icine, still others were so infatuated with the pleasures of Freshman life
that they decided to review their iirst year's work. We note that one has
originated the startling theory, new to physiology, that the covering of
fat globules during digestion in the stomach is broken up by sunshine.
But we miss our old classmates, and wish them all the success we hope for
Were we at the theatre party? Yes, and the people knew it. They also
knew that one of our classmates held aloof from us thinking to see the
play from abox. CWhy he wanted to see the play from a box was evi-
dent.j We do not blame him, but we thought it better for the class to be
together. After many invitations and entreaties he joined us, having no
reason to doubt that "the class of 1902 is valiant, brave and strong."
Our renowned president is a most worthy representative of whom the
class is duly proud, and around whom the class machinery revolves in an
uninterrupted chain, devoid of strife and construction.
Class elections are always quiet and as yet have brought to light no
The class history necessarily closes in january, for the IRIS goes to
press. We are in the midst of mid-term examinations, and trust that the
results will compare favorably with those of former classes.
The historian hopes that the readers of this history will be lenient in
their criticisms and will excuse his short comings.

Bring to mind the things forgotten,
That we knew, but now have lied,
Mem'ry enters without warning,
Followed by a motly throng,
Clad in garments gay and doleful,
Chanting dirges and sweet song.
'Mid the throng of fleeting pictures,
Scenes of Freshman days are rife,
NVhen we entered, fearing, trembling,
That first phase of college life.
Swiftly moves the panorama,
Swiftly Fancy shifts the slides,
'Till imagination softly
Into "Sophomorism " glides.
Then the pictures pass more slowly,
For we've reached the middle land,
In our voyage towards that future
Where our work must fall or stand.
Where man's efforts must be ever
Towards the farthest. topmost goal,
Where man's work is all examined
And we all meet "soul to soul."
Now the views have crossed the curtain
Softly burns the lantern's light,
From the distance comes a picture,
But it fades from out my sight. V

Which I dimly, faintly see,
Painted by imagination

I URING the morning hours of Monday,
September 25th, 1899, the dust be-
grimed and travel stained visages of
that small, but valiant band which has
S , 'i X, since so gracefully bedecked these halls,
,,XIX ',f"li, ff began to straggle in with an unsophisticated look,

JI ,fix i mutterings of the many mdignities to be
kj 1 , heaped upon them, it is but little wonder that
' E. those doughty warriors returned to their
X ,Xi 1,1 homes with much magnified fears of what the
, , flljjdu if morrow might bring.
The following morning dawned bright and
J ,pl M clear, and as punctual as the aborigines of old
each manly face appeared in "Lecture Hall"
to receive their initial instruction in the mys-
teries of medicine. The lecture hour passed all too quickly. and being firm
believers of the old adage, "in union there is strength," those dauntless
few gathered beneath the standard of '03, and went forth to "beard the
Douglass in his hall." Down the winding stairs they went with flashing
eyes and warlike mien to meet that surging sea of determined faces. No
time was left for further meditation, for soon that surging mass was upon
them. YVith soph's to right of them, soph's to left of them, that much
dreaded post in front of them, and nothing but ignominious retreat behind
them, it is no wonder they were fired to deeds of valor. Soon that hall was
a mass of struggling humanity, while loud above the din of battle, arose
the sonorous tones of ,OS cheering each other on to victory, and right nobly
did they respond to that call until the plumes of those haughty soph's lay
trampled under foot. Exasperated by the remarkable achievements of
these raw recruits, the upper classmen came to the assistance of their much
bedraggled compatriots. After strenuous efforts on the part of the united
forces the battle scarred, but resolute few were slowly forced to mount that
initial rostrumto which every freshman must pay his just tribute. Then,
like belted knights of old, each one submitted to glorious defeat and pro-
ceeded to entertain the gaping crowd below. How well we performed this
mission, has since been made manifest by the absence of further molestation,
and although there have been many opportunities afforded to the once
haughty, but fallen soph's, to regain the wrested palm, we have yet to hear
of any such intent on their part.
Hardly had these battle clouds wafted away when we were once more
called upon to take up the shield of Mars. This time the luckless victims
were the unshorn Pharmics, and never did sheep walk more meekly to the
slaughter than did those same concoctors of summer-weather beverages.
How well they partook of the fatted calf so thoughtfully prepared for them
by adept and experienced hands, can best be appreciated by those who
have partaken of the same repast. This large, but easily conquered host
having recovered from the deliterious effects of " Grandpa's Wonder Soap,"
deliciously fermented milk and sundry other delecacies of the season, and
perhaps becoming confident in their vastly superior numbers have since
made a futile attempt to remove the blot from their escutcheon which as
might be expected, resulted in their being placed on a lower level than even
our former adversaries.
While deeply engrossed in this rather pleasant task of making the
Pharmics feel the importance of the life they were about to enter, our atten-
tion was called to another and more important consideration. Several of
our "Masonic" friends from the dental parlors beyond the campus filled
with curiosity to see how this well known band of husky youths were ac-
customed to treat their menials, decided to come over and view the
performance. Inadvertently some mischievous loving Juniors, who per-
haps suffered some grievance from the affectionate way in which we had
handled them on a prior occasion, passed a few Dents up to be initiated,
informing us with their accustomed suavity that they were Pharmics.
Relying upon the truth of this statement we at once proceeded to initiate
them in accordance with the traditional customs of our Alma Mater.
Highly incensed at the mode of procedure, and smarting from the
wounds indicted on their dignity, this demoralized band made their earliest
escape and returned at once to their den, where their plaintive story found
ready and sympathetic audiences. This humiliation to members of their
trade demanded instant retribution, and forthwith those plaster of paris
fiends came howling across the campus determined to wreak vengeance
upon those brazen Medics.
How well that band of 200 porcelain doctors Qprospectivej accom-
plished their purpose may best be illustrated by the strikingly similar oc-
currence at Thermopole, where the handful of patriots held off the vast
hordes of invaders. Sufiice it to say that although that overwhelming
mass succeeded in gaining entrance, remarkable to rclate,they immediately
made their egress, owing perhaps a part of the celerity of their exit to the
kind assistance of the Freshmen Medics. This seemingly inhospitable act
on the part of the Freshmen did not dampen their ardor, and soon they
came back "en masse," and forced an entrance where they again engaged
our attention. The result is a matter of College history and the heroic
stand of the Freshman Medics against the entire Dental College, however
the local papers may have contorted the account, remains a tradition
among our colleagues.
I What achievements we have won since that day have been in keeping
with the reputation we so early acquired, and a close survey of our con-
tingent would show that neither the latent ability nor possibility is want-
ing, and although as yet none of our names are inscribed upon the college
walls, still several traces of our efforts are distinctly visible throughout
the building. ,

We are the boys,-the red-hot boys,
The boys of "naughty-three."
The only boys who can cut stiffs
Up at the varsity.
We don't plug teeth or chew the lavv-
Soda water we do not sell,
But we treat our cases with Arsenic
To make them all feel well.
YVe love our teachers, every one,
We love them very wellj
XVe only wish that some fine day
They would take the cars to UL."
We have the only red-hot class,
The class you'l1 always see
Ahead of Seniors, juniors, Soplfs,
The class of "naughty three."
Freshmen prof's of U. B. Medics-
YVisdom filled and up to date-
Try to make the students hustle
Early rise and study late.
Dr. Hendee, he's a dandy,
Soaks us with a written quiz.
He will make a hot physician
When he get's whiskers on his phiz
Dr. Burnham, he's just lovely,
Viscera he's got down pat.
When he starts to asking questions
NVe all wonder "where we're at.',
Dr. Matzinger aids digestion
Principles all proximate.
But chief of all is Dr. Gibson,
Who for quizzes makes us wait.
We're medics you see,
The class ofnaughty three:
All bent on becoming physicians.
We're all of one mind,
To honing inclined.
And get expert at Writing prescriptions.
The class ofnaughty three
Forever shall be,
Distinguished and studious and eleverg
And wherever we go
Our colors we'll show,
And sing the praise of U. B. forever.
We're the people we are,
Way up above par.
To work we all have no objections,
But there is one kind
Where we'd fain draw the line,
And that is the job of dissection.
We're hot stuffyou know,
We'll prove that it's so 3
To do this shall be our endeavor,
Then here's to the health,
The honor and wealth
Of '03 forever and ever.

F THE college up on High street,
Where 'mid scenes of blood and carnage
Youthful youths and beauteous maiden
Zealous strive to get a sheepskin,
Which will open wide the portals,
Of the world in which they enter,
All prepared to wage the battle
Fiercely with the grim destroyer,
Sing I now trochaic accents.
Many are there in these regions
Who, 'twould seem, are far from perfect,
Yet who intheir inner conscience,
Deem themselves of mortals wisest.
One there is among the Doctors,
Who receives a welcome eager
Ever when he meetshis classes,
Need I place his name on record F
Here, I fear, 'twould be unseemly,
Yet if any mortal-curious,
Fain would ascertain his title,
Let him ask a freshman verdant,
Who it was in days not recent,
With a written quiz did soak him.
Many are the new diseases,
Which we learn as on we travel.
One there is but recent noted,
Sometimes called "Disease of Hendee,"
Called thus from a noted subject,
Who from it did suffer grievous.
Vain you search the dictionary
For a schedule of the symptoms,
But for fear you e'er will meet it,
Ignorant of signs and symptoms,
Here we'll set another title
Which will serve to make it easy,-
Caput magnum. Think it over.

On a bookshelf in the center,
Where the anxious gaze of mortal,
Has a chance to comprehend it,
Stand three volumes, thick and heavy,

All the rest are prehistoric

Merely as a decoration.

Here to make a diagnosis,
Trying hard to feel the pulse beat,
Noting carefully the color,
Placing all these things on record,
For the benefit of science,
When the marks of cuppin g glasses
Red and yellow show before us,
Try we then to draw conclusions
As to how they came to be there.
Some say stethoscope impressions,
Others marks of careless handling,
But the one who hits it nearest,
Modest makes the pat 'suggestion
"She's been lying on the money!"
But a record of uniqueness
Would be lacking in completeness
Should I not herein make mention
Ofthe "BIG FIVE" of the Freshmen,
Curley, Cupid, Duodenum, i
Roos' tie, and last but not least,
One whose fame has gone before him,
As the only true oiiicial
Commentator of the classes.
Such my song, poor, bent and feeble,
But at least, 'tis not malicious,
So if here you take exception
To a noting ofyour weakness,
Try not fierce to slay the writer,
Who in peace has dwelt among you,
But perhaps in days to come yet,
You may feel a deep gratefulness
Forlthis small reminding of them.

History of the Class of Iooo
N OCTOBER ofthe year eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, the
Junior class of Pharmacy made its debut in the history of the
University of Buffalo. To this class the goal for which they
were struggling CPZIV. appeared to be far distant in the
future. When one is busily occupied with the studies of college
life, the flight of time is very rapid. The above statement has
undoubtedly been realized by nearly all the readers of the Iris.
In view of this fact the historian takes upon himselfthe respon-
sibility of recalling to memory some incidents which took place
W T iv T during ourjunior year.
in V up lf in Upon the evening of Gctober fourth, eighteen hundred and
U il? U in . . 4 .
w w ninety-eight, the junior class of Pharmacy were to meet and
receive their preparatory lecture. Had they known that the
lecture was not all that they were to receive that evening, we
venture to predict, that there would have been more vacant
seats in alumni hall than were visible on the evening in ques-
tion. The death-like stillness which prevailed at the time of the lecture was
broken only by the voice of our instructors as they imparted to us many
useful hints concerning our work. There was one hint in particular for
which we would have been very grateful, " namely," the initiation to which
we were to be subjected that evening at the hands of the Senior Pharmics
and the Medics, assisted no doubt by the Dents.
The juniors, knowing it would be useless to struggle against superior
numbers, resigned themselves to their fate, which was none other than to
be introduced into the society CFD of the city. The next day "work" was
the watch-word, and for about two weeks our peace and quiet was undis-
At this time, one day while listening to the musical voice of Dr. Greg-
ory, vvho was explaining the unknown portion of Pharmacy, we were
treated to a shower of beans. We immediately realized that our bodily
welfare was in danger, and at the close of the lecture the majority of the
class passed up-stairs to the Pharmacal Laboratory, but one of our number
passed through the lower hall. The young rnan in question was at once
attacked by one of the Medics, who had been selected, on account of his
physical ability, to force the unsuspecting junior upon his back. This was
a larnentable mistake on the part of the Medics, for as soon as their young
giant and the junior niet, the poor Medic was gazing at the ceiling of the
main hall, much to his disgust, as well as to that of his class-mates. The
second man quickly stepped out to do his class honor, but our noble Spauld-
ing hlled his prescription as quickly and accurately as any Medic could wish
to be waited upon.
The next incident of importance was the Theatre party of eighteen hun-
dred and ninety-eight. The junior class was very well represented, nearly
all being present. The Dents and some of the Medics have carried the idea
that the Pharmics were a dead lot of fellows, but such is not the case, there
being a few who are quite lively.
It was demonstrated at the theatre party that the Pharmics are much
bolder than the Dents, even if they were compelled to keep in the shadows
made by the Medics.
Soon after the theatre party came the mid-winter examinations, which,
of course, were thoroughly enjoyed by the class. The examinations were
satisfactorily passed by the majority of the class. Christmas vacation
came, and all looked forward to a long and pleasant vacation. The mo-
notony of the remainder of the year, until the final examination, was broken
now and then by the contests of the Pharmacy Bowling Club, which we
are proud to state won great honors.
The final examinations are now at hand, and all are busily engaged
preparing for this the last struggle of our junior year. It is with great sat-
isfaction that we are able to welcome nearly all of the class as Seniors this
year, and we very much regret that there were any so unfortunate as to
fail. We have all enjoyed a long vacation and are once more ready to pur-
sue our studies. VVe do not' approach the College building with such fear
and trembling this year as we did last October. YVe, as Seniors, are fully
prepared to ha.ve sweet revenge for the treatment dealt to us last year.
It is the evening of October tenth, eighteen hundred ninety-nine, and the
freshman Pharmics are listening to their preparatory lecture. Dr. Kiepe,
knowing what was next on the program of the evening, kindly addressed
the freshmen in a few well chosen words and then left them to their fate.
As the freshmen came out we, assisted by the Medics, gave them a most
It can be truthfully said that the freshmen realized how pleased we
were to see them. Some no doubt had this fact demonstrated to them more
clearly than others. There is one thing for which the freshmen may well be
proud, " namely," the goodly number of their class who excel in song and
dance. Had time not been so limited, it is not improbable that some fine
orators would have been developed, and some of their numbers exhibited
wonderful talent for sprinting and their names should be recommended to
the manager of the track team.
The second day following the initiation of the freshmen, the peace and
quiet of our building was much disturbed by the Dents who proceeded to
clear our hall of a few Medics and Pharmics. '
The following day it was agreed that the Medics and Pharmics should
return the compliment, so at about three o'clock alarge body of students
proceeded to attack the Dents. It was found that the Dents had barricaded
the doors and windows, this however was only a temporary hinderance.
Ladders were soon procured and the Dents were attacked at the windows on
the second floor. At this place the Medics and Pharmics were treated to a
shower of plaster of paris, which was followed by a goodly supply of
water. The fellows were determined to gain an entrance in some way, so
a large plank was brought into use as a battering ram. With this the
lower windows were forced. A rush followed and six or eight freshmen
Dents, who were in their laboratory, were captured. All the captives were
taken to the roof of our building, which was used as a prison. The battle
continued until nearly six o'clock. During the progress of the fight, several
coppers made their appearance. Their number being insufiicient to produce
order among the students, they were reinforced by a greater number of
comrades. As the boys had had a suiiicient amount of physical exercise,
the services of these bluecoats were not required.
The annual night-shirt parade was the next incident which claimed the
attention of the students of the university. This event took place on the
evening of November thirtieth, eighteen hundred ninety-nine. At seven
o'clock there assembled at the college about three hundred students, each
being robed in a night-shirt. Here they formed into line and proceeded
down Main street, to the time of the popular two-steps and marches which
were rendered by a band secured for the occasion. After executing some
fine movements, the procession retired to a theatre and there as a body
enjoyed one of the most popular QU plays of the season.
The mid-winter examinations commenced December eighth and were
completed December thirteenth. The following evening being the theatre
party, a portion of the class remained to enjoy the entertainment.
After a three weeks of vacation the class reassembled to resume work.
As the IRIS goes into the hands ofthe publishers at this time it will of course
be impossible to give the remainder of the class history.
The class as a whole is doing satisfactory work, and if each member so
continues until the close of the year, there is no doubt but that each one
will be rewarded by a certificate of graduation.
Before we close this, the record of our class, we wish to express our
gratitude to the instructors for the interest they have manifested in the
class, and should any of our number fail to successfully pass the final exam-
inations, it cannot be said that the instructors were at fault, but that it
would indicate a lack of diligence on the part of the student.
It is with the memory of many agreeable acquaintances formed while
here at the U. of B. that we write, the close of the class history of 1900.
J '- im
HERE is a book on memory's shelf
Inscribed in well-worn letters Q
To College Days, and not for pelf
Would I displace it for its betters.
My history for two short years
In it I see and readg
Though it brings back my joys and tears,
Of my youthful thoughts and deeds.
Some sheets are scattered, some are torn,
Sometimes I miss a page:
But all are soiled with use, and worn,
And all are gray with age.
Sometimes I find a page that's clear
Where the dim ink has fadedg
And wonder if 'twas best that here
My life should go unshaded.
But there are others, thuinbed with use,
Whose letters stand out brighter,
And meeds of reward do not refuse
To the careless youthful writer.
O, now my hair is thin and gray,
My course oflite is run,
But with delight I trace my way
Through college work and fun.
Right lovingly I turn the leaves
Ofthe book of my College Days,
And royally my fancy weaves
An apology for the plays.
There are scenes which make this old cheek blush
And my hand trembles even nowg
But I turn the sheet with a patient hush
And my head with reverence bow.
How kind, how great, how good He must be,
Who could take my hand and lead
Through sin, and evil, and mischief, me,
Till I came to tell him my need!
But my eyes grow dim and my voice is hushed
And gone are my worldly cares, '
When I read ofthe times when we have rushed
In the corridor and on the stairs.
The brown, stone walls before me rise,
I tread the ill-kept grassy
I clasp men's hands, now old and wise,
Who shouted for my class.
Hush! faint and far away I hear,-
The boys are standing there,
And now they sing and now they cheer
In the corridor and on the stair.
Like the clinging perfume of a faded flower,
One strain from those old lays,
Brings back to my mind the happy hours
When we sang in my College Days.
But the flower is dainty, and fresh and bright,
And the perfume is faint and sweet,
As I dream ofthe old, old times tonight,
Now rounded and complete.
That misty veil is removed from view
That hid Futurityg
And I'm thinking now ofthe chosen few
From my class in Pharmacy.
And this is my farewell message to all
Of those in the class I know,
Who sang and cheered in the college hall
In that time so long ago.

-'J . S a last resource, I took up my pipe, lay back in my chair with my feet
A. on the mantle, and through the clouds of smoke, assisted by a some-
. what highly colored imagination, l seemed to see my comrades of the
, 1 U. of B. Class of Pharmacy 1900, as they travel the path of life in the
Q ' " I future. They have met with almost unsurmountable difficulties, but
H7 Q with the indomitable will that marked their studies, will at last reach
N amerited success. Through the hazy atmosphere I see the familiar
-J form of big "Abe" McLauth who, as Chief of the Dispensing Dept. of Roose-
velt Hospital, N. Y. is as genial as ofyore, and as willing to give any of the
boys a lift, if they happen to be down in their luck, notwithstanding the cares of a family of
17healthy, motherless children. Again, as the scene shifts, my gaze turns to a hustling
village in the Black Hills of S. Dakota. A fat, curly headed druggist stands in his door, and
by the cordiality of the grip on my hand, I know it is'the same old Spaulding. "jim" has
indeed prospered, as is evidenced by the corpulence of his figure, which also shows that his
Chemistry researches have not proved fatal. I was then transported to the shores of Niagara
at the Falls. Through the mist I could see a handsome granite structure, the sign of which
told the weary traveler, in letters of gold, that this was "The International Drug Co. Very
Limited. fCapital S6,000,000D " Of an inquisitive mind, I entered, and was greeted by
"Laurie" Young, Sec'y. 81: Treas. who soon called to my attention the Pres. Allen Day and
jasper Kobler, Vice-Pres. I was shown through the vast Works, and just as I was leaving I
spied Lew Bradley, iiH165fZE7', and Gen. Manager of branch oHices. You fellows all know
what a hustler he is. We, ofcourse, must talk of old times, but the thought comes to me that
this is really " four ofa kind," and hard to beat. In the course of our conversation, I learn of
many of the boys and how they are coming on. Of E. L. Fish, and the large and prosperous
business he is managing in Brazil, of the firm of Keenan 8: Cumming's of Akron, N. Y.
Wholesale Druggists, who also carry Cumming's Cement, on the side. Of Albright, married
and happy, as Dispensing Chemist in a new Accident Hospital at Ponce, Puerto Rico, also
of McAdam conducting a general store at a small cross-roads town in one ofthe southern tier
counties, mixing H2 SO4, and Clothes-pins with a recklessness that shows the contempt which
familiarity breeds. Our friend Waterman, I see leading the peaceful life of a country practi-
tioner in a small village not a hundred miles away, where his Pharmaceutical education
enables him 'Lo successfully meet the many occasions for oflice dispensing, that falls to the lot of
a physician in the rural districts. I reload my pipe, which has gone out, and again become
surrounded by a blue cloud, which seems to have a subtle effect on " the Muse " who is playing
such havoc with my mind. My thoughts take shape! I behold a sight that causes me to to
rub my eyes to be sure that I am awake. I am not mistaken. I could recognize that hat in
China, none like it has been seen since 1882, and none but Charlie Dean would wear it. His
smiling face cannot be hidden even though the hat comes over his ears. He together with
Harley Dowman and Paul Wheaton, have been touring in Cuba, ostensibly resting, but
incidentally breaking a few of the lovely dark-eyed Senorita's hearts for variety. This is only
preliminary to a Post Graduate course in Chemistry in Berlin, that they contemplate. There
are three others of the old Class who by their strict attention to business are rapidly making
a name for themselves. I refer to Ballagh, Sortore and Feries. john is now a rising M. D.
and is chief ofstaffin one of the largest Hospitals in the United States. George grew tired
ofthe mortar and pestle, and went back to his former occupation as Stenographer for the
Appellate Division of the Supreme Court at Albany, where he earns C?l a salary of 350,000 QU
per. He, however, expects to again join the Knights of the Skull and Crossbones, as he
believes there is more money in drugs. Poor deluded mortal! While Arthur, the Silent is
proprietor of the leading Pharmacy in Buffalo, with fair prospects of becoming Dean of the
College. Parker, one day while springing one ofhis vilest puns was suddenly landed on the
sidewalk by his employer, but like " the worm, " jesse "turned " and smote "the boss " and is
now running the place himself in a certain suburban section of this city. Chandler is a gentle-
man ofleisure settled in Buffalo in answer to the oft repeated question: " Pop, when are you
coming up to stay ?" I
Wetmore and Gale are catering to the fastidious tastes of the Cornell students at Ithaca,
the diminutive villages of Butterfly and Trumansburg being much too small for a satisfactory
performance of their unlimited abilities. I understand too, that Willie had a much more
powerful attraction in the person of a - but I won't give away any secrets, while jesse still
remains single. For the lady member of our class I see a very brilliant future, for after leav-
ing Buffalo she returned to Wolcott and eventually assumed proprietorship. She is now,
without exception the most successful Lady Pharmacist it New York State. I
Then, there is the enterprising staff ofthe IRIS, from this department. Messrs. Fitch and
Lane who, being thoroughly enthused with the spirit, and very much infatuated by the
possibilities ofa life of letters, iorsook the learning accumulated by two years hard work and
entered the field ofjournalism where Mr. Fitch is Editor-in-Chief ofthe Automobile department
of the New York " Whirled," while Mr. Lane's experiences as schoolmaster make him
especially fitted to accept a similar position in the Lost Children oiiice of the New York
" Kernalf' Cotton, our mighty footballist, took a course in Medicine that he might stay on
the team and it was a good move, for he now holds the double-jointed position of Coach and
Surgeon of the celebrated lady players from Philadelphia. Another of the bunch has
deserted from the ranks, and now Roscoe is acting as Musical Director and Scene-Shifter with
jonesky's Aggregated Congress of Barn-stormers, and after a careful inspection of all the
railroad ties between Buffalo and Denver, Col. will cheerfully testify that those of "the
Wabash far away," are the softest and easiest on the feet. Austin, our Marble-heart, was
not proof against the arrows of cupid, but was captured by a buxum country lassie and is now
operating a thriving dairy farm, in the vicinity of Euclid, N. Y., where he is always ready
to dispense a glass of n1ilk,'or water, or possibly something else, that might arouse memories of
the " Great Northernf, or of " Tivoli." Merkley ascended so rapidly, that I lost sight of him
but he was at last located on the summit of Pikes Peak, alternately occupied in stargazing and
conducting chemistry Quizzes with an imaginary Parker, just to pass the time, while waiting
the outcome ofa test in his Laboratory. As often happens, two directly opposite tempera-
ments are attracted to each other. So it was in the case of Strong and Brzezicki, where
Frankts natural good humor apparently neutralized Walter's assumed gruifness, and they are
now engaged in dealing out Spt. of Nitre, Paregoric, etc., in our important territory of
Luzon, P. I.
There is another, whose career I have followed in my dreams with interest, and it is a
pleasure to see Reese in the role of a missionary on the east coast of Africa, where he has op-
portunities galore to become acclimated and absolutely impervious to the pleasant C?j odors
of ripening dates and dusky natives Ccoonsj sweltering in the sun.
Lee Miller, as everyone can see, is destined to become President of the Black Rock Busi-
ness Men's Association and Chief Pinsticker of the Aluminum Bowling Club, probably con-
cluding that it would be tempting Providence too much to return to Elmira, as Brockway
might recognize him.
Wells Walrath and "Max" Brimmer, the inseparables, I see back in the wilds of the
Adirondacks, relieving suffering humanity by establishing a Tuberculosis Sanitarium. To say
that it is a successful plan is but to state what has several times been proven. My thoughts
were next borne by the clouds of smoke over hill and dale, until, reaching a small city in Cen-
tral New York they were carried through thick, ivy-hung stone walls to a large building, or
series of buildings, surmounted by "Copper john," where, to my surprise, I found Geo. B.
jenkens handing out dope to a long line of men in zebra-like stripes. On reflection I thought
that Jenks had at last "struck his gait," for his soft voice, and gentle, almost womanly ways,
make him in every way fitted for the mission ot administering to the wants of depraved men.
Gene Sunderline, jolly, care-free Gene is fast cornin-I to the f
A font as a writer of historical
sketches for several leading magazines, having rightly concluded that there was a brighter
I, . . . A l
uture before him in a liter ary field than on the overeiowded paths of pharmacy.
And here I must draw the curtain, clean out my pipe, and brush away these illusions. If
there be any who say that these are but the weary wanderings of a disordered brain, let them
just remember that this "greatness was thrust upon me" and there was no escape, for no one
else would do it. '
My pipe is out,
My dreams are o'er,
I hope the boys
Will keep near shore,
And not swim out too far. CHAS

History ofthe Class of IQOI
.aa s M s, an
6' . LADY entered a prominent Pharmacy of the city and
3 asked a clerk how to start a siphon running. The clerk,
' who was not experienced, turned around and picked up
'gl I -" a bottle of siphon soda, and placing it on the counter
"f f said, in his serious way, " all you have to do is to press
' K 4 this handle." i '
,fi f ' It may seem an easy task to the inexperienced stu-
E dent to write a class history, but when it is undertaken we
A find it rather difficult. The arrival of our class in the city about
rm the tenth of October, eighteen hundred and ninety-nine, was passed
gms' among the Medios and our Senior brethern, and they turned out
in large numbers to get a look at the farmers, and be able to give
a good reception. After listening to a few pleasant remarks by members
of our faculty in the evening, we followed the Seniors to the court of the
building where they united with the Medics in giving us an excellent recep-
tion, followed by a pleasant QU entertainment, consisting of songs and
speeches Qby usj. They also kindly instructed us in the use of salt water
baths and a new way of using soap, and then proceeded to show us the
City, Qat our expensej which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
A great deal of credit is due M1'. Cohen for his successful efforts in an
early class organization. The choice of class President was somewhat
divided. Messrs..Cohen, Barker and Gayer being the favored ones, and a
close election was anticipated. The election was decided on second ballot
in favor of Mr. Gayer.
Mr. Gayer has proved to be the right man in the right place, and by
his genial manner, has become very popular. Our class has been well repre-
sented at several gatheringsg at the Athletic Field on Thanksgiving, at
the white robed parade and at the annual Theatre Partyg our class being
the only class represented at the latter from the department of Pharmacy.
It was here that one' of the older members of the class remembered the
promise to his wife "never touch ia bottle to my lips againf' so he poured
it through a funnel and Dr. Wende-well-forget it.
The Theatre committee, Messrs. Cohen and Root did excellent work
and are to be congratulated. The banner which they had prepared was
the prettiest one ever seen at the annual party. The class song is still being
rehearsed for next year, by which time we expect to be able to present it.
After the clearing away of the debris of the annual rush, a few junior
Pharmics were carted off the field. The rush will be remembered by the
participants for some time.
A rush, a scramble,
A tackle, a fall,
Sixty wounded, five senseless,
Shoulders broken, that's all.
Later in the Fall we met the Fresh Medios in a friendly way, and gent-
ly ousted them from Lecture Hall.
Our class has been found full of vim and always ready for a friendly
scuffle, "exam " or " quiz." The Junior Pharmacy class is sure to dis-
tinguish itself in the final Examinations.
If I were only talking instead of writing, Mrs. Lock would have the last
word to say-and she may yet.
We are indebted to a few members of the class for helps and sugges-
tions, and wish to thank them for their kind assistance.

Prophecy, Class of Iooo
KBuj?1Ia Law Schoolj
' HE Prophet of the class of 1900 on counting the members
IV' found that if he foretold the future of each member individ-
.vf X QQ ually he would not have fates enough to go around so to
, K avoid any show of partiality he has decided to take the
K, ills-5 x class as a whole and look into the future and see what is
'LS' I 14. . in store for it.
I am not the son of a prophet, but it does not take a
professional prophet wi th a lot of tea grounds to see that the future holds
much for the members of the class of 1900. The class has a reputation to
sustain, a reputation for holding more class meetings and being in trouble
oftener than any class which has preceded it, and in the future the members
will retain all the aggressive, scrappy spirit which made the class famous in
1899 and 1900, and woe be to the man on the other side.
In the words of the old song, "What shall the harvest be?,' Well, as I
am the only prophet in the class, I'll tell you. This class will start out into
the world to build up a reputation, all determined to show the people that
a lawyer can be honest. Perhaps some may succeed in doing that, but on
this particular point the forecast is not clear.
A few members of this class will eventually be members of the Faculty
and will forget all their troubles of 1899 and 1900, and rigidly enforce the
rules they then fought against and make their classes toe the mark.
Many members of this class will enter the political field, and, profiting
by their experience gained in the class meetings, their voices will be heard
in the legislative halls at Albany, Washington, Ebenezer and the First
Ward. Of course they will go into the political Held only from curiosity,
just to see what there is in it.
Some of our number will occupy high places in the community, even
work in 12th floor offices. Others not so fortunate will have to be con-
tented to be in on the ground floor. Some will be connected with our
safest and strongest institutions, the jail and the insane asylum. Some
will be on the bench, pegging away making shoes, while others following
out the inclinations shown in 1900 will spend most of their time practicing
in front of the bar.
One or two of the class who have been given beautiful voices and rare
musical ability, demonstrated while practicing class songs, will go on the
stage and, in a few years, the annual theater party will be to see a former
member of the Law School as the leading tenor in some famous comic
opera. Two or three others who have good voices but of different quality,
as shown in answering roll calls, will, I can see, forsake the law and take
out licenses as auctioneers.
Some of us will be old bachelors and stick to business and embrace all
opportunities while others who have domestic tastes will settle down and
embrace wives. The bachelors will follow the example set for them and
live at the clubs, while the others-well, they will thank their lucky stars
that they are able to live at all. It will be no uncommon sight in the
future to see, on pleasant Sunday afternoons, some of our leading members
with their wives and children automobiling out Delaware Avenue, and
around the Park and living easy generally. They will have large ofhces,
numerous clerks and rich clients. Not all of us will be so fortunate, but you
may rest assured that when you average up the class you will find that we
can give a few points away and still win out.
This class will have much to do in the future with the making of laws
for New York State and will enact many laws, each one constitutional,
very beneficial to the whole state and incidentally to themselves. We will
see the Raines Law repealed, promiscuous prize fighting allowed and base
ball played only on Sunday. All these things will be accomplished by the
class of 1900, and, as we move onward to "crimson glory and undying
fame, we feel that the Faculty will proudly hold this class up before the
classes which shall follow us, as an example to show to them what won-
ders may be accomplished by hard work and much burning of midnight oil.

-C. K. DeGr0at.
f "AAA"A' "s":' """"' OST law class historians start off by breaking the news to
the astonished laity that their class is just about the most
surprising bunch of phenomena that ever threatened to
topple old Mansfield and Marshall and Story from their
huuvp perches in the art-gallery of fame.
Such is not the class of 1900, but as David Harum
Bullock once remarked to a constituent of Cherry Creek, "The legal depart-
ment ofthe University of Buffalo has got some mighty good heads in it,
but foraloud and vociferous feet there is no place like it except a mewl
We early manifested our independence chiefly by refusing to pay our
term bills, and it is on record that on December lst, 1898, the no-to-bac,
Minister of Finances, had to start ten supplementary proceedings, and have
Warner adjudged an involuntary bankrupt, to get enough coin to blow in
on Christmas presents.
At about the same time the ten-second rule agitation began to manifest
itself and very few of the class escaped being on committees sent to petition
Parliament for a redress of our grievences, but King Charles was unyield-
ing, and for nearly two years took all the wind out of our Sayles, leaving
him hardly enough for that pathetic little Hheahf' a tiny protest against
that mighty iniquity, to stifle which it required the spirit of the martyred
Cohen, like John Brown's body, as our standard to lead us on to victory.
Ah, happy days ofthe youth of our class. Vfhy can not the sober his-
torian touch the poet's lyre-mighty arm of Hector Rice, Leahy of the
blond mane and the eloquent pen, long-haired Arden, the sweet singer of
Silvery Cherry Creek-gone are ye all and left us a stern and grim-visaged
generation to shield our class in its feeble old age.
Where is happy Lamson, the pride of sunny Geneseo, he of the sweet
smile and the auburn locks? A sober, steady, ordinary managing clerk of
commerce, a stringent ofiicial who has reduced his ofiice force fone callow
office-boyj to a state of miserable sub-servience dreamt of nowhere, save in
the class of 1901.
In our senior year Alderman Potter led the chosen people back from the
first to the sixth row, and Matthews supplemented Gowans as the cyclone
shield. Likewise it was discovered that one of our Portia's had left and
the other has cut so much that the place is an Eveless Eden and the elevator
boys have all turned sulky. Even Benton is serious now and no longer is
heard to hum in accents mild, "l'd Leave My Happy Home," etc. The
riotous "left" now is as silent as a Mothers' Convention.
Yes, we are all different now. We go to calendar calls, talk loud in
Municipal Court, call awful judges "Dennie," "Old Black," "Kids," etc.-
how changed from the old days when we used to sneak into Part One and
say "Thank you" to the tough-looking deputies who opened the doors for
us and make miserable bluffs at being deeply interested in imaginary cases,
exhibited on the beautiful pink and blue day calendars which curly-headed
Billy Bryan daily presents to the over-burdened tax payer of Erie County.
Blase! I should say we are. Why I even saw Sayles sneaking into
George Garner's the other day. He said he was going for "lunch," Sayles,
how can you say Richelieu like "In my surplice I shall make marriages,
in my gown shall I break them." "Law and theology-'tis the devil and

FRANK C. ALDERMAN
is a living proof ofthe fact that there is one redeeming feature about Batavia. He was born
there in 1879, and whatever may have happened to the town since, we will not forget that
once she was highly honored.
His parents early decided that Frank should be a minister, and to that end sent him to
sunday-school. As soon, however, as Frank came to years of discretion, he decided that the
Buffalo Law School was more his size, and by great industry and perseverance he has suc-
ceeded in overcoming enough of the baleful inlluence of his early years to bid fair of his making
a successful lawyer. Mr. A is the first man in his class-on the roll, and it is worth going
miles to hear hini, as rising to his full height C6 ft. 25 he makes a bold bluff at answering a
question, which neither he nor anyone else can understand.
Frank is very ambitious. He has decided that he wants to be a justice of the Peace, and
liveuin some quiet country town where the people will call him "Square" It is probable that
his dream will never be realized, as most young women now-a-days prefer the city. CAnd
Smith swears that he knows it to be a fact that " someone's " preferences render it very doubt-
ful that Frank will ever get to the country and be called " Square."j
HERMAN JEROME ARNSON
was born September 28, 1878, in Buffalo, N. Y. He attended the city schools and was grad-
uated from the Buffalo High School. V Being infected with legal microbes he immediately began
mousing among the tomea of legal lore in Attorney General Tabor's odice, and to get a better
training he matriculated in the Buffalo Law School. He is a man of exemplary habits, quiet
and unassuming, but nevertheless possessing the requisites of success which are industry and
tenacity of purpose.
GEORGE B. BARRELL,
No, no, not barrel-Barrell, rel as in ex rel. Thank you. George honored Albion by allowing
it to be his birth-place some twenty-three years ago. Yes, October 3d, 1876, he hrst saw the
light, and it so impressed him that it became a component part of his nature. He has been
light hearted ever since. During his early years he wandered amid the green fields of Orleans
County bare-footed and bare-headed, without a care. He soon .outgrew his surroundings
however, and hied himself to Williams College and inscribed his name high upon his class rolls.
fThere were no A's in the class.j Leaving there in ninety-eight an A. B., and still a thirst for
knowledge, he entered the class of nineteen hundred, Buffalo Law School. Here his cheery
ways and silver tongue have made him many friends and some OJ enemies. By them he has
been called a disturber, a Htribune of the people." His favorite day of the year is St. Valen-
tines day, but he is a good fellow. May his shadow never grow less.
josEPH W. BORK, JR. '
first obtained a right and title to a tenancy-in-common with the rest of the world's inhabi-
tants, on the 10th day of March, 1877-he has since ceased to be a "howling" success his
intimates declare. He used up, in all, about nine years of his twenty-three in going to three
different schools. When about fourteen years of age, he seemed to feel entitled to a
rest, and went to work at the printing business-where he found lots of spaces to work in. A
few years ago, he felt the need of another change, and he started to acquire an interest in law,
at which he has been unusually L' study " ever since. All his hopes for peaceful enjoyment seem
to rest on what may happen on the 10th of May, "1900."

was born in Buffalo, N. Y., and is a descendant ofthe illustrious bard of the same name. He
attended Public School No. 10, and after graduating from there entered the Buffalo High
School. During his career he played half-back on the football team in the season of'94 and
'95, He was also conspicuous on the track team in the hundred and two-twenty yard dash,
and furthermore, was one ofthe participants in the annual contest for the Interscholastic Cup
offered by Cornell University.
In 1898 he graduated, being treasurer ofthe class. The same fall he entered the Law De-
partment ofthe University of Buffalo, where he has become a member of the Glee Club and
Track Team, and is the recognized baritone voice of the class.
JOHN GOODING CARPENTER, .K
whose blue eyes in babyhood first caught sight of things terrestrial on the shores of Lake
Champlain, is known only as "Carp," partly for short, partly because john Gooding, for
whom he was named, is a Methodist diyine, still living, somewhat sensitive, and objects to
inconsistencies. " Carp " flourished for a time among the scrub pines of the Adirondacks, but
his youthful mind at last grew tired of contemplating only the dancing beams of sunshine on
the waters ofthe lake, and he accepted an offer to be educated, from the Trustees of Colgate
University, and it was there that the latent germs of oratorical genius were discovered, and
the embryonic Choate developed. Tradition says that when " Carp" left Colgate there was
weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of college widows' teeth. Yea, 'tis even said, that while
the body ofjohn G. Carpenter is now in Butfalo, his thoughts are always far away, and that
the lyddite shells of Cupid's arsenal are so fast pattering on the iron-clad heart that before the
leaves of autumn fall there will be an unconditional surrender to the forces of the Benedicts.
ERNEST W. CHANDLER
claims Buffalo as his native home. After graduating from Public School No. 31 with first
honors, he entered the Buffalo High School.
V In 1896 he completed his course in that institution, being valedictorian of his class and
winning the jesse Ketchum gold medal. '
After elerking for two years he entered the Law Department of the University of Buffalo,
and for two years has been teaching evenings in the Buffalo Public Schools.
RUSSELL B. CLARK,
the subject ofthis sketch, was born at Elma, Erie Co., N. Y., july 12, 1877. In 1898 he was
graduated from the Buffalo Central High School. Unobtrusive and good mannered " Clarky,"
as his classmates affectionately call him, is an ornament to the Law School. Of a diligent
-mind and open heart he is foreordained and predestined to be a success in his chosen profession.
nrst served a notice of appearance upon this world on the 22nd of july, 1878, in the city of
Elmira, but at an early date Q1882j removed to this city. In 1892 Ike, not having arrived at
the age of discretion, thought that Erie, Pa., offered greater inducements to him than this city,
and therefore moved to that place. He graduated from the Erie High School in 1897.
In 1897 Ike, having secured greater wisdom and understanding, saw his mistake of 1892
and returned unto this city, where he at once began the study of law, entering the University
During the season of 1897 Ike made a splendid record on the foot-ball team.
In a little one-act farce, presented recently by Ike's class and the faculty, he played the
part of the martyr-and played it well. Mr. Cohen's clear mind and pleasant disposition are
certain to give him a creditable rank in the class honor roll ofthe future.
CLINTON KNOWLTON DEGROAT.
The natural instincts ofDeGroat-the man of mystery-so he says. would have led him to
"teach the young idea how to shoot." His ancestors for centuries have been professors and
school-ma'ams: but Clinton, failing to find in the annals of great men a single instance where
a school-teacher had gained the everlasting applause of his countrymen, closed his ears to the
whisperings ofinstinct and decided that the legal arena should be the battle-ground for his
talents. As the great event of " Deac's H life, there are whisperings of an occasion, not so long
ago, when, after a class banquet, at the hour of2 A. M., " Deac," with several of the other fel-
lows, started out to paint-but never mind, 'twere better left unsaid.
THEODORE M. GOWANS,
a product of Buffalo, born july 19th, 1874-, he has lived here ever since, except a few years
which he spent at Yale, learning how to smoke a pipe and answer "here " to rollcall. To hear
" Tede " answer "here " is an education in itself. He conveys so much by it. As expressed by
him it means, yes I'm present but it's an awful bore to be here, I had a deal rather be talking
to some of the girls I know or sleeping. "Tede" graduated from Yale in '96, an A. B., and
spent the intervening time between that and September, '98, in the study of " Soap and it's
application." He entered the Law School with the celebrated class of 1900 and went in for
athletics. He don't look it, does he? It's so, however. He is one of our greatest wrestlers.
He has wrestled successfully with all the problems of law that have dared enter the lists with
him, and overturned them all with his clear, cold analytical reasoning. This tendency has
gained him some prominence, second in the class last year.
But above all, ifyou want to know the sentiment of the boys about "Tede," ask them.
They will alljoin in singing, " For he's ajolly good fellow."
FLOYD G. GREENE
bawled his first Democratic war-whoop on a quiet Sabbath morning in the seventies. He begs
to inform the public that he began life as an i1y'anZ in the quaint old Quaker town of South
Dansville fit is not on the mapj. He was from the start a central figure among the rustics,
who gathered at the country grocery to discuss the destiny of nations along with bucolic
science. I-Ie soon became known as the " whittling sage," but a great name failed to quiet his
restless mind. He was reluctant to waste his wisdom upon the desert corn Held. Church
adiliation sundered the ties that bound him to the common herd and he longed to become a
perspiring pulpeteer. But wiser heads interceded and he turned to that haven of rest-the
legal profession. It is with tearful regret that we mention his weakness for the fair sex. We
need only say that his eye never flashes brighter, his pose never becomes more majestic than
when he basks in the sunny smiles of some buxom daughter of Erin. Here we leave him in the
sunlight of paradise.
HERBERT L. HART
first began to beat his way in life so long ago that he ean't remember the time when he
wasn't alive and kicking: he swears he was in Rhode Island at the time, but Adamsville has
never dared to name itself on the map since Hart disease struck it. " Bret" thrashed around
a bit and was thrashed a bit more at the little red school-house. Little Rhody lost heart when
he spurned her further advances and went out to see the 'world. Purely by accident the
brakeman overheard one of his jokes and "Bred" him off at Buffalo. This happened in
1889 and Bret proceeded at once to coal up. The coal business is black and smutty: R. I. is
noted for the lobsters she sends out: we would not be misunderstood-our smiling brother is
white and clean and resembles the lobster only because of the Erin grip which he has on the
good will and affection of his friends and mates. Unlike the lobster, he never squeals when
things get too hot for him.
CHARLES W. JOHNSON,
first saw the light of day in the year 1876, near the village of Dalton, Livingston County,
N. Y. He spent his early life working on his fatl'1er's farm. During his stay in the city of
Buffalo, he very aptly held the position of private clerk to the Secretary of the Law School.
From all reports he intends to soon take a special course in Domestic relations, and engage in
the general practice of the profession, paying much attention to the jurisdiction of the United
States Courts. He has a great longing for the West, andiwe expect to soon hear of his
following his chosen profession on the Pacific Coast. If he should go West, success would be
his sure attainment, on account of his friendly nature, true character, and especially his love
for the " White Metal." In the last school year he held the office ofa member ofthe Executive
is commonly known as the "deacon's masterpiece." The illogical name that will grace the
gilded shingle over his office door, was not inherited. He has a past, that has long been the
envy of many a burly cow-puncher. Rough life upon his mule ranch in Oklahoma has
endowed him with this appellation as a mark of esteem. When the fame of Buffalo, as a Mecca
of legal learning, swept across the plains, the wild and woolly West offered up its cherished
son, and his bronco tamers-not to mention Martin Clark-vow he will one day shine as a
star ofthe first magnitude in the legal firmanent. Pioneer life has made him as stern as a
paragon of piety-some call it legal dignity.
claims to have originated from Pittsburgh, Pa., but if truth was known this is his second time
on earth, during his former personage, he is said to have been a chief of a tribe on the Fiji
Islands and to have lived to a ripe old age. He has always taken a great interest in politics,
being a "Dyed in the Wool Republican U and always upholding that stereotyped phase "I am
a Republican." His political qualities were shown in the way he swung his nomination for
toastmaster of the Senior Class and was elected by a unanimous vote. His main ambition
now is to pass the Bar and get into the swim with the politicians.
GORDON FRANKLIN MATTHEWS,
was born in Welland, Province of Ontario, A. D., 1878. After some few years of rural life
spent in that Province he, with his parents removed to the United States where he subsequently
renounced his allegiance to the enemy of the Boers and became a citizen of the United States.
His school life was spent in the public and High Schools of this city, where he intends to
pursue the practice oflaw after graduation and admission to the Bar.
ADRIAN SMITH MALSAN
says he hails from Utica, N. Y., a town of considerable size and importance, but in reality the
domicile of this promising young man is Whitesboro, a settlement on the western frontier of
Utica, where the town cow wanders on the village common and the mail comes in by stage
twice a week. In his confidential moments Adrian has remarked that it was his college life at
Columbia and University of Buffalo that brushed from him the pioneer newness incident to
Whitesboro residence, and transformed him into the embryonic Beau Brummel of to-day.
Adrian's specialty is criminal law and it is said that in his practice before the tribunals of the
Justices of the Peace of Whitesboro, he has successfully defended some of the most noted
chicken thieves of Oneida county, the mecca of chicken thieves, which, if it be true, augurs
mightily for his future greatness.
was born near East Randolph. N. Y., sometime in the seventies. He received his High School
education at an academy called Chamberlain Institute, graduating from that institution with
second honors, and was also orator of his class. Afterwards he taught school and laterserved
an apprenticeship in a country store fAbraham Lincoln did alSOl. Later he aftelidfd Ol'liO
Wesleyan University for nearly three years, being obliged to leave during his junior year on
account of sickness. In spite of his fi-owns and savage expressions he is a congenial and good-
the hypothetical genius of modern antiquity-is a unique character combining the dash of a
Decatur and the sagacity ofa Platt with the wiles ofthe devil. Born into the political turbu-
lence of 1876, he quickly imbibed the spirit of a Kentucky politician and proclaimed himself a
man of destiny. For valient service in the political arena, he was exalted to the lucrative
position of water carrier for a corps of government surveyors in the North Woods, a position
which he Hlled with honor for several weeks. But tinding his position daily becoming more
responsible and envolved, he decided that further mental equipment was imperative, so he de-
cided to take up legal studies and ineidently become the Mark Hanna of Budalo politics-the
chief advisor of Boss Hazel.
PETER FREDERICK PIPER.
Pete Piper,-the name has a familiar ring, and the reader may fancy he knew him in
younger days, but there are others and Peter Frederick is one of them, not that his type is
common, on the contrary, this Peter is Dara zwis.
August 6th, 1864-, he Hrst saw the light of day in Herkimer, N. Y., a town famous for its
Statesmen and jurists. judging from his career to date, he promises to maintain the reputa-
tion of his birthplace.
I-Ie is no novice in the walks oflearning, having held honorable positions both as student
and teacher. W as educated in Herkimer Academy. Fairfield Seminary and graduate from
Syracuse University in the class of '89 with the degree of B. S. He has taught in public
schools, was assistant instructor in Physics at Syracuse University, and at present, in addition
to his law studies, is Instructor in Geology and Mathematics at the Central High School,
Buffalo. It will be remembered that last Fall, for several days, Mr. Piper wore a very worn
expression in class, and on more than one occasion was seen to nod. It is said that this was
due to his keeping a vigilant watch for meteors that he did not see. Unlike most of his class-
mates Mr. Piper can boast ofa charming wife and daughter, whom he says make lighter the
burdens of his studies and school work.
M. POTTER, .
born in Buffalo, N. Y., june 30th, 1877. No, he is not French. One might think so from that
M standing there so aggressively. But that simply stands for Meredith, called "Reed" for
short. The boys named him "Merrie," because he is so grave. Look at his impassive counte-
nance and hear his dignified, sonorous utterances and you can almost see the robes of an
Appellate Court judge clothing his spare Hgure. "Merrie" began the study of law when but
four years, old. He was playing in his father's office, and found a Summons and Complaint
lying around loose. He ate the complaint and almost immediately made one himself. This
probably accounts for his present skill in drawing paper, although he has learned how to
digest them better. In consequence of this early taste ofthe law he has developed a mind of
great legal acumen, which simply goes to show that some things go to make bone and others
brain. For the past few years "Merrie" has been running the firm of Potter and Wright. It
would perhaps have been better if I had said "runningf01f," but no matter, it's only a slip o'
the pen. "Merriel' is a member ofthe class of 1900. May he live long and prosper.
YVILLIAM EWART ROBERTSON
first saw the light of day at midnight in 1874. His baby baritone woke the slumbering
echoes of his chosen birthplace at Bluffton, S. C., where chocolate-lined natives swarm, but in
spite of ' which fact, he was born white and has remained so ever since, this being one of his
Early in life he was removed from his place of birth to a second berth in thewilds oflthaca,
and later entered Cornell. Here he acquired a vast fund of knowledge pertaining to the fnner
points ofshooting, fishing, football, baseball and cock fighting, on which broad foundation
he broke into Buffalo real estate, and mindful of his nativity, has bluffed his way into the Law
School and the presidency of his class. Parson Sayles, being painfully impressed, has dubbed
him a "gentleman," a distinction due perhaps to his intermingled Scotch and French Hugenot
blood, his sunny Southern temperament and Northing training.
JOSEPH Rosen, JR.,
was born sometime in the year 1879. at Wurtsboro, Sullivan County, N. Y. He spent his
boyhood days pumping wind in the forge at his father's blacksmith shop. Being of a roam-
ing disposition and inquisitive turn of mind, he decided that the Buffalo Law School offered
about all the inducements he required, so he entered the class of 1900.
When first seen here he was reading boarding house signs. His innocent face would lead
one to believe he had made a mistake in the choice of a profession, but a short acquaintance
with joe will drive that thought far from your mind. It's hard to tell what branch of law he
will follow, but judging from the way he takes notes he intends to make a specialty of all.
Not being wholly satisfied with the way justice is dealt out in our courts, he makes frequent
trips in Canada Hto Court," and the indications are that he will be very successful there.
JULIAN COLLINS RYER,
born in the city of Chicago, Ill., in the year 1880. He received his early education in the
public schools of that city, and where he had completed the grammar school work, came east
to Buffalo. when he, after completing a High School course of study, entered the famous
Buffalo Law School in 1898 with the class of f'1900."
FRANK JENNINGS SAXTON
was given to the public on or about the sixth day ofjanuary, 1870. Forseeing the public
nature of that event, the fates decreed that it should take place in a city of no less national
importance than Washington, D. C., and as we should expect, we find Mr. Saxton's early life
spent in gathering inspiration for his subsequent career, from the very heart of the nation.
For nearly two decades he gave his best-in fact his only-years to studying public men and
affairs, all of which has proved invaluable experience to him in the recent anti-Norton
outbreaks. Following Mr. Platt's example, Mr. Saxton then embarked in the express busi-
ness in Corning, N. Y., later giving his attention to his railroad interests in the same city.
The year 1898 marks a crisis both in the life of Mr. Saxton and in the history of the Bar,
for it was then that he decided to leave Corning and his business, to enter the legal profession
in this city. His career in the Law School is too well known to need comment. He had
profited by the years spent in political and business circles and he brought that training and
experience to bear on the legal propositions here presented to him, with good results. When
delegated to be the representative ofthe class in the struggle for liberty, he proved himself a
modern Moses and led his followers out of the land of bondage with skill and discretion.
REV. JOHN A. SAYLES
traces his ancestry to the heroic stock of Roger William. He was born sometime during the
reconstruction period in Southeastern New England, close to the famous Northn1en's Rock, at
Dighton, Mass., and the old stone mill at Newport, and King Philip's chair at Mt. Hope,
Educated at Tufts College, Mass., and ordained to the Christian ministry in 1892, he im-
mediately became pastor ofthe First Universalist Church, at East Aurora, N. Y.,betterknown
as Philistia. He is an earnest advocate ofthe Prohibition party, having been nominated to
divers public offices as Senator, Congressman and Lieutenant-Governor.
Being ofa versatile mind and desiring a better equipment for his life work, he is supple-
menting his theological education by a course in legal training.
VVhile maintaining his dignity as a clergyman he has always made himself"one of the
boysfjovial, good-natured, ever receiving the jokes of his classmates, but always tossing
back his characteristic wit in such a manner as to be a warning to would-bejolliers.
With the Bible in one hand and Blackstone in the other, he can administer justice with
mercy, and as a successor of Lord Nottingham become a second father of equity.
Y WILLIAM FOWLER SMITH
first gazed upon life's eastern hillside in this city on the 19th day of December, 1871, and be-
hold, there at a point half way between him and the summit he beheld the Buffalo Law School-
And thereupon Willum spake unto those around him saying, " Give unto me one certified
check for iifty dollars, a certificate as to my good reputation, one cake of barley bread, and a
bottle ofciystal water, and I will hie me hence to yonder institution, in order that I may
acquire instruction of wisdornuiustice,judgment and equity." And all these things to him
were given. And thereupon Willum set out, keeping his eyes straight before him, pondering
the path ofhis feet, and having his ways established. And lo! upon the 25th day of Septem-
ber, 1898, he found hirnselfin the presence of E. Corning Townsend, and sighing a sigh of
relief, Willum laid before the secretary all that remained-his certified check and amdavit of
reputation. And the secretary looking upon the honest countenance of the weary traveler
said Cafter he had securely covered the cheeky, " You are welcome."
Willum soon adapted himself to the situation, and at the end of the first year stood high
upon the roll of honor.
There have been Solons, Alexandreas, -Iustinians and Napoleons, and those who have been
justly called Fathers of their Country and benefactors of their race, but Willum Smith, you
descendect of the illustrious and heart-captivating john of Pocahontas fame, you have an
opportunity to place yourself far above those on the honor roll of the nation.
HARRY A. TALBOT
made the awful discovery that he had been born in Canda, on january 18th, 1874, near the
Royal City of Guelph' His clenched fists and determined look indicated a strong purpose in
life even at that early stage of his career. His early education was received in the country
schools in the-land of "Our Lady of the Snowsf' Later he graduated from the Guelph
Collegiate Institute where he developed a taste for the classics and the higher mathematics.
Leaving the farm he turned his face toward the Yankee City of Toronto where he became
a reporter on the "Mail and -Empire." Success followed him and chancing one day to see a
mutilated copy of 'A Norton on Bills and Notes " he met his fate. America welcomed him and
the Buffalo Law School received him gladly. His favorite subjects are "contracts" and
He holds the responsible and lucrative position of " Claims Adjuster" for the Maryland
Casualty County, a place where tact and business ability are essentil and judging from the
regard his superiors have for him, his future asan insurance lawyer is very bright. He is a
fine fellow and commands the respect of every man in his class.
" the Napoleon of Society," is said to have more female scalps dangling at his belt than even
the notorious Geronima ever boasted of Countless torn and bleeding hearts bear witness to
his deadly campaigns. But it could not always be thus. At last, fate wove him into the web
of destiny, and cupid sent forth his conqueror. The fair hands of a sprightly brunette
moulded the Mr. Hyde into a Dr. jelcyl. Never was victory more complete, and now, so
frequent are his pious pilgrimages to Randolpn Center, that he is aimost a stranger to the
class room. But, with this vast store of experience, he cannot fail to win fame as a specialist
in domestic litigations.
ARTHUR XV. THOMAS
born as a Christmas present to his parents at Albion, New York, 1875.
Clean as a hound's tooth in character. Free from affectation and vanity. Industrious,
though not brilliant. Cherishing aspirations for the best in the legal profession. judged in
the light of the backward and the forward look his life is both fulfillment and prophecy.
WILLIAM H. WALKER, JR.
It was a red letter day on january 13, '77, when Will or " Weary" as he has been called
by his intimates was ushered into this mundane sphere. During his "Knicker" days Will
played around Buffalo and helped the real estate boom by moving part of it from one place to
When he attained years of discretion, he went to Geneva not Switzerland, hut N. Y.,
entered Hobart college and and coped successfully with all the courses in the curriculum even
"Dan Deegan's"-graduated from there in '98 a B. L. he turned his attention to law as a
pastime. The work given to the class of 1900 could not keep him from being an easy mark,
so he was assigned the task of Editing the work ofthe Law Department on the Iris Board.
The able way in which this duty was fulfilled perhaps accounts for his disappearance
when the Iris came out.
LUCY THAYER XVARING
was born in California but at an early age removed to Troy, N. Y., to attend the Emma
After completing her elementary education she directed her efforts to acquiring an
education in art. In this vocation she demonstrated creditable talent.
Subsequently she married Mr. Waring, and is now a resident of Franklinville, Cattar-
For the past two years she has practiced the gospel of the "strenuous life." Riding a
hundred miles on the train, six days in the week through rain and snow, tempest and blizzard,
Mrs. Waring has made a record in her educational campaign that would do credit to a boy-
orator candidate, or a circuit-rider preacher.
Asking no special favors on the ground of her sex, she has modestly pursued her studies
winning the respect and good will of her classmates, and a high rank on the class roll.
Mrs. Waring immortalized the class of 1900 by being the first woman attorney -to appear
in the Buffalo Courts.
Thr same class immortalized her by electing her to the oHice of Class Secretary of the
brighest body of students ever matriculated at the Buffalo Law Schoal.
HARRY SEYMOUR WASSON
was born sometime after the war of 1812 at Olean, New York, atown situated in the southern
part ofthe State. His parents recognizing the advantages of the Buffalo Law School and
other benefits offered to one in a city, soon moved to Buffalo and became residents thereof
Mr. Wasson claims to be connected in some way with Ex-Governor Horatio Seymour and
several other distinguished men, but as the time for going to press is at hand it is hard to
verify this statement. He has the ambition of a Caesar, but his main ambition is to go
through the Buffalo Law School, pass the State Bar Examinations and then he will be pre-
pared for whatever comes.
PERRY E. VVURST.
Now in congruous 'Perry must have been behind the door when the names were passed around
The "namer" looked for him a long time with the intention of labelling him " Best," but
Perry failed to appear.
So when he did he was dubbed Wurst, so that his good qualities might show by contrast.
He is Cattaraugus County brand, born in Machias, N. Y., on the 7th of january, 1878. It
was a warm day. Perry says so, Says he didn't have any clothes on.
' "Barefoot boy with face oftani' he early learned how to distinguish between hay and
grass, became interested in the subject and went to Cornell to study scientifically the art of
" making hay While the sun shines."
He graduated from there in '99 a B. L., and once cast his lot with 1900 Buffalo Law.
XVe welcomed him heartily. He is another disturber, so-called, but we are sure of one
thing, he will never be worse than his name.
Advice to the Juniors
HOULD you take out life or accident policy before leaving home, better have inserted
the cyclone clause, as you will find cyclones are of daily occurrence here. Without
such clause your life plans may be disarranged in your first encounter with the ten-
second statute oflimitations.
It is highly advisable for you to do a little light reading in legal literature during
your summer vacation at Saratoga or the seashore. For this, it is suggested, you memorize
'Z!E7'blZfi7lZ, Kent, Blackstone, Parsons on Contracts, Story's Equity jurisprudence, Cooley's
Constitutional Law, the Domestic Relation Law, Real Property Law and the Code of Civil
Procedure. The last named periodical, with its limp morocco binding will prove especially
entrancingg and during your two years stay here, you may possibly hear it referred to,
The members of the graduating class " 'O0," collectively and individually advise every
junior to secure a clerkship in some law olhce in the city. You neednot shrinkfroni thisbecause
your previous experience as a trial lawyer is limited 5 for, except in the larger othces, you will
not be compelled to conduct trials in the Supreme Court for the first two or three weeks. In
this way you have remarkable advantages for becoming acquainted with the offices of the
County Clerk and Surrogate. You also gain valuable experience in being allowed to watch the
telephone and guarding the door to the inner sanctum. Incidentally you use ofiice stationery
in all your letters home which will impress them with your importance in the legal world.
While it is admitted that hitherto it has not been a general custom with the men here, you
are advised to put up at the Iroquois. In that way you will sooner get acquainted with
different members of the bench and also must meet the governor and other distinguished
visitors of the city. Many a distinguished guest has expressed his disappointment at having
to leave the city without making the acquaintance of a single student ofthe Law School.
Should you wish to know what is meant by "legal Hction" and not have access to a law
dictionary to help you out, for one of the best examples or exemplifications of that term, look
over the annual catalogue ofthe Buffalo Law School. Z. FIZZLE.

O THE Class of 1901 Justly belongs the credit and distinc-
tion of being the first of the numerous classes that com-
pose this University of Universities to adopt the Honor
System. i . I
This system which prevails in most all of the large
Colleges throughout the World is based upon the indi-
vidual honesty and integrity of the student. It embodies that degree of
morale and self respect found only vvithin the bosom of the student whose
desire it is to obtain honor and laurels on his own individual merit. In
this system the students have absolute control of the examinations, there
being no members of the faculty in the room where the examination takes
It may be maintained by members of other classes that this system has
heretofore been adopted by them, but, conceding this to be the fact, it is
nevertheless true that such systems of honor as were adopted by them
were not in conformity with those desired by the faculty. For this reason
I justly contend that the junior class was the irst to settle upon a system
of conduct acceptable to both the members ofthe faculty and the class alila e.
The members of the class oflO1 are to be congratulated for the enlight-
ened manner in which they grasped and adopted ithis system, and it is
hoped that it will meet with the success that its originator and members
of the faculty anticipated, and be adopted by all future classes of this

History ofthe Class of IQOI
i x as
BOUT sunrise, September 25th, 1899, the Secretary of the
Buffalo Law School suddenly remembered that he would
soon be out of a job iflie did not procure more raw material
for his "Pettifogger Factoryfl jumping desperately from
bed, night cap in hand and robed principally in an ill-fitting
frenzy, he drummed on the stove pipe at the same time shout-
ingin a loud mustard-plaster-like voice, " Let there be Law Students," and
at exactly 9 A. M. jeronius Voluminous Maloney arrived f. o. b. CFreight to
Buffaloj prepaid. The others came shortly after billed C. O. D.-Cash or
A few of the men thus drafted into the Law School were covered with
the mossy hieroglyphics of East Aurora, Belfast, Orchard Park and other
verdant pastures g some showed the effeminating and demoralizing influence
of college life, a small number were bald and scabby Qon the outside of
their headsl and paradoxical as it may seem the latter class are most stren-
uous in maintaining that the common law disability ofthe husband to take
action against his wife for tort has not been abrogated by the Domestic
Relation Law of 1886, but they find comfort in the statement that the
meek are blessed and are to inherit the earth. Relying upon that proposi-
tion, those same men are trying to negotiate loans on their real estate
interests to pay board bills. Roll call revealed one real live New England
bean eater. This is probably the greatest curiosity of all, but the Fenian
Brigade is the white elephant which worries the Faculty most.
From their external appearances, actions and questioning attitudes, a
few 'fglittering generalities " have been deduced. It is just to remark that
the class formation is not a violation of the second commandment.
When our class turned themselves loose upon the good people of Buffalo,
the believers in the evolutionary theory of the survival of the iittest ex-
pressed grave fears that in the attempt to adapt themselves to their new
and seductive environment the mortality would be great. It is a deserved
compliment to the class and a financial satisfaction to the treasurer to
know that their fears were groundless. One member of the class voiced our
unanimous sentiment when he said that it was a joy to be in Buffalo and
mingle with its inhabitants, but he regrets that the pleasure is all ours.
The Faculty, however, showed some appreciation of the courtesy extended
to Mr. Townsend by each member.
Following registration, each man set out on a hunt for a Hash Hole
that would give Iroquois fare at lunch counter prices, but no official " joint "
has been selected as yet.
It would have been more amusing had it been less sorrowful to watch
the effect produced by the various instructor's tactics. De Lano was para-
lyzed by the prospect of Domestic Relations, Aquinaldo has manifested no
interest up to date except in Criminal Law, while nearly all were troubled
with recurrent insomnia during the study of cases.
At the first class meeting, after a long and bitter campaign replete with
the machinations of rival candidates, it was declared to be the unanimous
and only opinion of the class that Mr. Cushman was the whole thing. A
complete list of the self sacrificing members of the class follows with their
respective positions of duty :
NAME. Posiriox. ELECTION EXPENSES.
Cushman, President, One afternoon's sleep.
Zink, Vice-President, 10 boxes of cigarettes.
Gorman, Secretary, Talk and tears. i
Rohr, Treasurer, Only a song.
Livermore, Orator, 23 tickets to Court St.
Killian, Historian, His veracity.
Stedler, Poet, One idea.
Mills, Toastmaster, 9 packages of gum.
Conboy, Prophet, 18 schupers.
Another class meeting was called subsequent to the completion of the
introductory chapters of Elementary Law, for the purpose of mutual con-
dolance and the ad option of a class motto, several of which were proposed,
but two only received serious consideration, viz.:
" God pity Law Students " and
" Of all sad words of tongue or pen
The saddest are these, I've Hunked again."
The former was objected to upon the ground that we were not deserv-
ing, and after a heated discussion an amendment was offered, substituting
a dash for the word "pity," but the amended form was not voted upon.
The second was finally adopted as expressing the daily sentiments ofa large
majority who meant well but were unfortunate.
Mr. Abram Isaacs was employed by the class to translate the motto
into Hebrew, but owing to his lack of metrical and musical ability no sat-
isfactory translation has been made. This is a great hardship to the class
as ,we consider that we have been thwarted in our endeavor to appear
learned. No other act in University life is so essential to present and future
success as to have some " quot " little expression written in a foreign
tongue with which no one is familiar, to inspire and point us heavenward.
Another mistake that has been made by the junior class is its back-
wardness in ripping up furniture and making busy neighbors miserable-
By a little more diligence in this respect, probably we could have done sev.
eral hundred dollars worth ofdamage to college property, which has only
one excuse for its existence-to be torn to pieces. We might have unj ointed
a few legs and jaw bones belonging to the seniors, and incidentally given
the tailors employment, and have had the Ellicott Square bedecked in a
gorgeous crimson. It is an open question whether the Faculty will feel
justified in awarding our degrees unless we can show that we have partici-
pated in one or more " mix ups," but we are the originators and first users
ofthe famous "automatic form of honorary self-government," and so are
precluded from resorting to any commonplace chicanery.
Besides all the above qualifications, we are, each and all, blooming
specialists in our respective lines as is clearly demonstrated by the follow-
ing individual sketches :

ADVANCE GUARD REDlVIOND'S FENIAN BRIGADE.
At the beginning ofthe year, WILLIAM DEUTERONOMY CUSHMAN tendered his ser-
vices to the class as Chief Executive, and has since conscientiously presided at its assemblages
without pride of place or hope of compensation.
In personal appearance, Mr. Cushman is noted for symmetry and intelligence of features
and his every aspect is such as to inspire confidence and admiration. It is this appearance
somewhat enhanced by the sweet slunibers ofthe lecture hour that suggested the sobriequet

WALTER N. ZINK began to indict his presence upon the people of Buffalo twenty-three
years ago, and has since been busily engaged in mental and physical development. Mr. Zink
is a Huent extemporaneous speaker and one ofthe few of the class of 1901 who love the excite-
ment of pursuing the intellectual spoor of an idea and chasing it up a tree. It is freely pre-
dicted that he will ultimately fill the Presidential chair.
T. J. MARTIN is a thorough sport and keeps in close 'fproximityu to all things connected
therewith. The "Bull headed judge" says of him:
" Great head-great bluff.
Studies some-not enough."
G. L. HAGER, the Shakesperian impersonator, after passing through all the varied experi-
ences incident to the life of an actor, entered the Law School. Theatre goers pronounce this
his most praiseworthy performance.
Grand Island has produced one grand man-W. H. CONBOY, Supervisor and Prophet of
his class, etc., etc., etc.,-etc, He believes in the purity of politics and beer, and that lunches
and the coinage of silver should be free. He is best known as an euphonious and effervescent
political stump speaker. It was the intention of the compilers of this book to print a few
yards of some of his best literary efforts, but the publishers informed us that an extra high
pressure test paper would be necessary to stand the strain, and even then there would be
more or less danger to press, employees and readers. This is the only objection to the Super-
visor's productions in times of peace.
H. E. ROURKE is the intellectual peer of any Fenian who ever swung a policemau's
shillaly or cursed England to the music of a pick. Probably Mr. Rourke is the most popular
Junior Law Student, yet any remark concerning his nationality ruildes his composure. One
day he overheard a classmate remark, "Isn't Rourke an odd character?" His suspicious ears
metamorphosed this into, "Isn't Rourke a hod carrier?" and before explanations could be
made the air was full ofchallenges. If this sensitiveness is overcome, legal honors are his just
desert. Mr. Rourke is something of an author, his best known publication being, H7000
Protane Expletivesg or, How One Cuss Word Provokes Anotherf' dedicated to
'L Toughest things I ever saw
Cyclone Charley's Rules of Law."
NEHEMIAH LEMUEL FRENCH QCapt. Dreyfusj often threatened suicide by jumping off
the earth at a remote sub-station known on the time tables as Colden, but has revised his
notions. One of the Assistant District Attorneys is a clerk in Mr.,French's office.
EZEKIEL GRAM is the originator ofthe metric system of weights and measures. The
unit of weight in this system was named after Mr. Gram and is defined as being equivalent to
the weight often of Ezekiel's plump little ideas. With one of the senior students Mr. Gram is
engaged as cliaperon at No. 37 White Building.
W. 1. CURTIN, who is one of the few benedicts of the class of 1901, is noted for his ability
to articulate words, his inability to smile, and his inclination to baldness. It is said that he
would rather be President than right.
TOBIAS BEETHOVEN GRIFFITH is famed in the Law School for a large crop of beautiful
bushy hair underscored by an impervious layer of bony material which serves to protect his
grey matter from any hair oil or ideas that might otherwise occasionally soak through. T.
B. wears a double-breasted shirt waist during warm weather and has the down town swagger
Ofa Chicago sausage maker. He means well, however.
MOSES M. LUDLOW, JR., has dieted several years on obesity tablets and pancakes, hav-
ing reduced his weight to 265 pounds on january 1, 1900. He says his life is one continual
round of sunshine and soda-water, and that the white dove of peace hovers daily about his
pathway 'and perches nightly upon his bed-post. He is never known to lose his temper except
when the elevator boy calls out, " Hurry up, Blondy, my fat friend, if you want to ride."
W. M. VAN KEUREN is conceded to be the most variously accomplished member of the
class. He is not only a candidate for the Degrees M. D. and LL. D., but is a musical and
poetical genius also. He is similar to Oliver VVendell Holmes in the respect that he does all
things equally well.
H. O. LANZA traces his lineage to sunny Italy, and thence through a long line of illustri-
ous ancestors. Mr. Lanza concedes that he is the orator ofthe class, and that his moustache
is the pride ofthe entire Law School.
Our history would be sorely incomplete if we omitted to men-
tion Philip Reilly DeMarse, managing clerk and private secretary
in the office of Mr. Leroy Parker. In politics Mr. DeMarse is a
firm anti-expansionist and his sympathy for the Filipino cause
is very marked. This is said to be due to the workings of an en-
larged conscience, but this theory is seriously questioned.
D. L. SPRING first disclosed his pleasant countenance in the
his early education at that place and later graduated from
William's College. In September he entered the Buffalo Law
School, where his studious habits at once won the celibate heart
of the Instructor in Contracts. Mr. Spring is noted for his ability
to "lecture" and "expound," and also for being the son of his
I ffl A
. Z ' -,I
flux' .I metropolis ofFrankl1nv1lle about twenty years ago. He acquired
'LAGUINALDO " DEMARSE.
WILLIAM S. ROOT.
The man who has taken the IRIS in charge
Is a fellow named Root, whose feet are quite largeg
His stomach is gaunt-his brain is real small,
But for little slyjobs he beats Hazel and all.
He got a class picture that made the saints weep
And worked us on rafries and soaked us for keep.
This motto we hear each session resound,
" lf you ain't got no money you needn't come 'roundf'
ALFRED W. VARIAN is a Pennsylvania Dutchman by profession. Besides this, he is
studious, pious and sober. These qualities were thrust upon Mr. Varian under protest.
J. V. MALONEY made his debut in this city twenty-three years ago. His ability has
already been recognized, as he holds the responsible position of secretary of the Society of
Fenians of Buffalo and is familiar with all the dark and double-dyed mysteries of that order.
Personally, he is noted for rapid-fire articulation and extraordinary lung capacity.
GEORGE DEWEY SEARS is a chubby Buffalonian who is devouring Kent with a rapac-
ity unequalled in the history of that delectable dish. In his face is pictured all the solemnity
of an undertaker which brings to the class visions of the "Beautiful Shore " and the " Rest
beyond the grave."
R. H. TEMPLETON sports the most classic, sphinx-like face of any man in his class. The
V sombre dignity ofhis personality interferes with his digestion and hap-
, ' piness at times, but he is beloved by all who " didn't have time to read
ii' . the cases" and wish pointers.
Ji ' I " As I understand it,l' O. B. lXIcNamara began an existence about
If ' forty-eight years ago, for which no valid excuse has ever been given.
I IVIISS ALICE H. DAY, " The Pride of the Law School," recently
if joined our ranks but has already shown her ability to successfully argue
Q, knotty legal propositions. She is a resident of Batavia, N. Y., and has
L i earned the Degree A. B. from Smith College. Witli the exception of
WV " Laury Etta " Stedler, Miss Day is the only lady in the Junior Class.
.- ELI NONIMPUDENT OAKES is a dreamer from the banks of the
ffl muddy Canaseraga. He took up the study of law with an air of sub-
, ii lime resignation. In his dreams he often wanders to the scenes of his
-' boyhood in his native Dansville. Its glories loom up vividly in his legal
MACK' brain and he plays again at the base of its famous monument upon
which is inscribed the imperishable words, U Railroad Crossing, Look Out for the Cars."
Our labors are ended. 'We lay down the pen,
But trust a successor may wield it again.
We tried to slight none on the IRIS, brief page
So bridle your feelings and stiiie your rage.
VVe sought to remember the quibbling of Mills,
The bluffing of Gorman and Cook's little chills.
Thejourneys of "Lincoln" and the sauce of our Oakes,
And the fairy tales hlartin sent home to his folks.
The slumbers of Cushman, the gapping of Boise,
The shell games of Root, and Moynihan's noise.
The accent of Stoddard, his weals and his woes,
And his late Harvard process Of pressing out clothes.
The blondness of Ludlow and the mashes he's made,
The injunctions of Redmond, and his Fenian Brigade.
The ravings of Maloney and IXIurphy's dude swing,
The singing of Rohr and,the genius of Spring.
The ambitions of Curtin and thejolly of Stone
The acting of Hager and Delano's death groan.
The smiles of our Stedler with his feminine airs
And Woodbury's trials on the boarding house stairs.
The soarings of Lanza in that parlor tableau,
The gaiters of Hirschmiller and his "gait" which is slow.
The logic of Zink which his neighbors doth lack,
The shyness of Fell, and the whiskers of "Mac,,'
The frown on DeMarse like a cloud on the sky,
The stature of Baker and the lecture of Sly.

But sorrow sad my heart now rends.
'Tis true the boys were square to me
And soon my virtues good did see
The speaker of the class far-famed
Abe Livermore they wisely named.
Not always, sure fthough men may say
It never sees its own bright dayj
Is genius lost, for strange indeed
They made me quick their Thomas Reed.
But sorrow, nor of mortal life!
The pains and cares of human strife
Must be the lot of all great men
That live alone to die-and then
Their heirs do tell how great were we
How noble, grand Meir pedigree.
'Tis sad my parents were not swell
Or rich, for 1'd not have to tell
This tale of woe, and feel as though
The world for me were made of dough
That breaks when'er you put your thumb
Upon its surface round and plumb.
For never yet in Lincoln's life
Did he incur such dreadful strife
As tussling with a morning quizz
As Norton gives to us-gee whiz I-
He had no Norton in his time
Or sure indeed he ne'er could climb
So high the ladder ofgreat fame,
For surels he did, he'd hear his name.
And Norton's voice would freeze his heart
And that " Expound Sir" make him start
And fall clean off and gasp for breath
And sigh for sweet relief or death.
Boo-hooh, Boo-hooh! '
I'se want-a-go back to my woodlands,
The scented, drowsy woodlands,
VVhere the bees are a humming
And I can go bumming
Like the coon and the hare
And never care,
And never despair,
For Charley, sure, will never be theref'
The youth still blubbered his weep
Upon that bank so high and deep,
When came 21 sheep, a big black sheep,
And bumped dear "Abe" into the deep-
Which, pray the Lord, him safe may keep.

From the wilds of East Aurora
Comes the Law School's tallest man.
There is a report, he is quite a " sport"
And for short we call him "Van."
The cold and snow of country roads
Have spoiled poor " Van's " old game.
He cannot ride his wheel no more,
But he gets there just the same.
With muffled ears and overcoat
He climbs old Hamburg's hill.
When the clock strikes nine he is right in line
To swallow N07f07ZyS Pills. '

History of the Class Of,IQOO
C.Dr"f?ll7'l77l67lf of De1zl1b'!1j'.D
gf ISTORY, treating of truth and facts makes the following more or
less diliicult of execution. The telling of a story, the singing of
.,m,a,,,,,,-,Q a song is more to my taste than telling the truth, but as I am
limited to the relation of a series of events taking place
during the greater part of three years, spent with others in the U. of B.
studying the art of Dentistry, I shall have to walk the narrow path. The
recollection of the first class meeting is vague and indistinct, but the faint
impression I still retain, is that of a funny looking collection of different
styles of wearing apparel, collars, stand ups, lay downs, turn overs, open
fronts and German-Americans, vests of all patterns and discriptionsg
coquettish pants imploring the various pairs of shoes to come up and be
sociable with at least the extremity of the legs.
This collection was finally called to order and a president elected, and
the various offices nlled to the satisfaction of the majority. Meanwhile
we were becoming better acquainted and those who had never been in
college before, were told by a certain " sly few," who knew a thing or two,
that it was the habit of the juniors when they returned, to take some of
the impressions remaining, from our careful and affectionate guidance at
home, out ofus. It was late in the fall and pretty cold, we were about
to have Snow. We had just sung a song and given our class yell Qof which
we are still proudj There were thirty-seven good pair of lungs back of
that yell, and it proved too much of a tantalization for the juniors to
resist. One very indiscrete young junior with bald spot on his head, about
as large as a dollar and a half, and the odor of "squirrel whisky" about
his person said " Out with the Freshiesf' There was trouble right there.
We held out to the best of our numbers and retired in good lighting order
for the most part, but the exit of some of the class was a little more hasty
and undignified than usual.
One afternoon, soon after this there was an unmistakable restlessness
about members of the class. Mysterious and knowing looks passed
between members. Whispei'ecl conferences were frequent. Upon making
inquiries, I learned that something most exciting had taken place. Martin,
Ccommonly known as Ruskj the man who plays the heavy part, had lost
his Hask. It wasn't known at tha.t time that he carried one, or that he
cared for the sparkle of the wine in the glass that K' Biteth like a serpent
and stingeth like an adder." But I have since learned that he has to take
eye openers because he once nearly lost an eye and has since lost his
reputation as a scrapper, but has gained distinction as being something of a
politician. Several members purchased new locks following this scandal,
and jones realized that it is "high time" and began to collect his
laboratory apparatus. He hasn't tired of this pleasing pastime yet.
in Events follow closely, and the mid-term eXam's are at hand. This
causes some excitement, but we escape from the sharp stick of the Faculty
with a few scratches, and are getting down to the work of the second half
again, when the serene quiet is broken by. an altercation with the Medics.
They insisted upon projecting pieces of coal coated with snow at some of
our members. YVe stopped work for awhile to give the matter closer at-
tention, and went outside to settle. Our argument was so strong, that at
the end of fifteen minutes, there wasn't a " Saw Bovzesn in sight. A few un-
fortunates carried discolored optics for a few days, but this was forgotten
in the satisfaction of complete victory. After this, peace and quiet reigned
supreme, and except for the excitement furnished by various German bands,
hand organs and dog fights in the back yard, existence would have been
monotonous. YVhen the end of the year came we were not sorry to get
The following year " Apple John l' is as much in evidence as ever. Nick
Powers makes up his mind to carve more teeth than any other man in the
class, and with the able assistance of Dr. Whitcomb has a record breaking
score. Tlzompson, Sherwood and Kampe resolve to make all the instruments
needed for their senior year. Smfitiz cultivates his voice as a rag time artist.
Moms smokes stogies and spends his spare time walking on Delaware ave-
nue. The rest of the bunch stab plaster 'till the close of the year.
The beginning ofour last or Senior year is the most interesting. The
scene of action is practically within a space enclosed by many walls, and
known as the infirmary. The atmosphere of this place seems to have a
specific effect upon some, upon others it seems to bring out those qualities
inherited from old father Adam, and causes not a little jealousy. Under
able instruction, we are shown the vital principle which form the corner
stone of our profession. We learn many new and interesting things : How
to please the ladies, and cultivate a delicate touch. We learn to know a
putrescent pulp as soon as we open the root canal and have solved the pro-
blem of filling root canals in third molars. -Many know the minute differ-
ence existing between soft and cohesive gold, " Daddy" Newton has
become an authority on Watts' and De Treys' gold and uses hand pressure
altogether. Many are experts on knocking out pulps, they knock out
everything that comes their way. There is a new organization formed this
year known as the H Waldo Club." Many are taking advantage of the un-
usual opportunities offered, I understand the object is personal improve-
ment. I n spite ofthe much talked of dignity of the Senior class, we were
forced to take part in an exciting "scrap" this year. But had not the
honor and good reputation of our institution been at stake, this would not
have occured. However, as the Dental College won the battle, and it is
unbeconiing for victors to talk too much, the least said about the matter
the better. And now the year is drawing to a close, and the juniors are
beginning to take the place of the present Seniors in the iniirmary. To tell
how many chairs have tipped over or nioustaches become tangled in the
hand piece of the engine would take endless space.
In the beginning of our college life our visions were dimmed and handi-
capped by ignorance and boyish enthusiasm. But gradually this envelop-
ing mist has been dispelled and followed by the light of understanding and
perception. To those who have striven to grasp the principle of the life
work they have chosen, has come the peace and quiet of a self-sacrificing
existence, devoted to the unseliish deliverance of suffering mankind. Each
obstacle, seemingly unsurmountable, has with perseverance and patience
been overcome and stored away in the archives of our memory, ever to be a
mile stone passed and left far behind in the track of our intellectual advance-
ment. Some perhaps have fallen by the wayside. Let us not scoff, but do
homage to their memory-for it is nobler to have tried and failed than
never to have tried at all. And as we leave the institution and friends,
whose every thought and labor have been solely for our benct, let us give
them a hearty vote of thanks for their devoted patience.
We cannot all stand upon the topmost round of the ladder of our
profession, or become the shining star of the horizon of fame. Yet honor
and respect is due to those, who do and continue to do, the best they can.
Exam's over, and at the close we shake hands some of us, as a iinal
parting, never to meet again. Then the realization of our loneliness is
forced upon us. VVe say " Good bye I" Each to follow a differently directed
path. Some meetingg and then the happiness of meeting old friends. And
in the end when the mortal tire burns out and wejourney to that 1' Bourne
from whence no traveler returns." Let us hope that each one will have
lived a useful life, striving to attain a noble object.
Yours painlessly, C. L. CLARK.

"W lass Poem
F YOU'RE waking, call me early comrades dear
For I would see the sun rise, once more this college year,
It is the last of college days that we shall ever see,
Then we hang our pictures on the wall, and leave dear old U. B.
To-night I saw the sun set, he set and left behind,
Our college days, the good old times will often come to mind,
And our life worlds opening up,iboys, and soon we each shall be, .
Upon the troubled waters, oflife's stormy sea.
Three years ago as Freshmen we came from far and near,
And many hearts were filled with hope, that left no room for fear,
But from the ladder's lowest step, we've upward climed our way,
Until the letters D. D. S., adorn each name today.
Be sure we've had our failures, and pleasure mixed with pain:
Perhaps did we repeat it, we would not do the same,
But most valued are the lessons that by experience wrought,
And oft the greatest errors, only serve to quicken thought,
So in life's battle, our triumphs must be won,
By being trampled under foot, only to rise again,
And with redoubled effort, put the shoulder to the wheel,
Until the yielding iron, becomes the tempered steel.
When Autumn comes again comrades, and vacation days are done
Another lot of freshmen, will enter one by one,
When from their noisy habitude ourjuniors will descend,
And the old familiar chairs will be filled from end to end.
But the class of nineteen hundred shall have left those college halls
Where once their fame resounded and re-echoed to their callg
While on memory's page is printed, in characters ofgold,
Their record neler forgotten, and worthy to be told.
Good-bye our alma mater, good-bye, professors all,
When we come back to town again we'll not forget to call,
Good-bye at the odice grating, ye fairest ones good-bye,
May you have life's richest blessings, and a home beyond the sky.
Now comrades, call me early, at the breaking ofthe day,
Our day of Graduation, the balmy first of May,
'Tis the dawning ofa new life, the end of which shall be,
The entrance to a brighter one, in eternity. J, A.

of Nature, favored of Fate and by Dame Fortune, who, like a mother loving
best her latest born, shalt cling to this last class of the century, bestowing
upon each of them her benign influence and guidance, until the fame of the
class shalt spread unto the end ofthe heavens. And there shalt arrive from
their midst many mighty men and learned, to occupy with grace and honor
the elevated and prominent positions prepared for them.
The man of form rotund, the non-confZz.ect01', because of his rotundity,
and that alone, shalt be selected as Dean of the College of Extraction for
Deans, and be appointed thereunto by himself.
The little raven haired, black-eyed cherub, with the red cheeks, shalt
not for long offer resistance to the persuasiveness of his natural bent, but
wilt turn unto the avocation vvherefor he hath shovvn such remarkable and
unmistakable aptitude in operating upon that " thing of beauty." His suc-
cess at golden locks shalt be as marvelous as it has been at golden synthesis
of tooth contour. Under his professional care Waldo may perchance even a
full beard grow, which to make no exception wilt most certainly harmo-
nize by marked contrast with both hair and 'tache.
There awaiteth the advent of her prince a fair young heiress. He com-
eth from thy class and seeketh beauty and fortune. The latter alone were
acceptable, tho' 'tis not true of the former in the matter of a spouse. Nor
doth he drink, for forsooth "he poureth it down." Teddie's "excellent
disposition" shalt win her heart and purse. Again " music hath charms,"
etc., but beware, Oh, heiress ! Voice and disposition are not all of man.
The youth of Feline Phenol Fame wilt verily render staunch support
to the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and in later years wilt
become an ardent advocate of the Conservation of Feline teeth, an Za
Barrett. Poor Pussy! Even so, shalt thou not become extinct.
As the brothers step from the institutional portals, success wilt take
them by the hand, and here at the head of Niagara's Flood they shalt find
fame and fortune as copartners g the elder conserving teeth by all means in
his power for the younger to tug at and replace later, each receiving just
recompense and reward for his respective pains.
" Two men "L and "the kid! " They go hand in hand. Tho' the
latter's chief delight shalt be to lance with an X incision, the gums where
izqfkmfzfle prenzolcww persist in noneruption. Oh I. L. M. YV. X. Y. Z.! Take
advice from the learned and wise spirit and -
When fortune hath smiled upon thee,
Thou wise and eager youth
And a baby sits upon each knee,
Expect no bicuspid tooth,
For surely none will grow or be
'Neath gums in infant mouth 5
And, thy happy home we'll happier see
If thou seekest none, in truth.
By one - Dr. B- -ct hath it been said, " The people of that name, I
noticed, improve in looks as the classes succeed one anotherf' If 'twere
not so, all pity to the fair junior. But in seriousness, Hal shalt return
whence he came, and in the metropolis eke out a livelihood by the inser-
tion of new dentures in combs, rakes, sprockets, etc. Thy plan Hal, must
be to collect cash from rakesg otherwise thou'lt bankrupt be.
Ah but thy friend of confederate fame! Thou'lt hail to the chief, who
in 'hosecart' advancethf'
In the teeth of great gales,
He shall iight down the flame,
And tell the grand tales
To the young of his name.
Yea verily, another man. Dr. Daddy shalt he be called from this time
forth even forever more, despite the effort now being put forth to change
his name to Dr. Harum, in honor of his friend David, whom he hath been
said to favor. He shalt continue to pursue the studies only begun in his
college course, and peruse Physiology from an Avzatovmjcal standpoint,
Anatomy from a Q'ZliZZ'l:6L'lZ view, and Therapeutics from a cizemzfcal aspect.
The chief aim of his life will be to use Solila with anatomical precision.
For Dick, thy pen may predict a lieutenancy in the Queen's Guard.
The commission, much to his delight wilt arrive just at the close of the pres-
ent Boer-British war. Nor wilt he ever fight more valiantly on enemy's
soil than hath he upon neutral's. The Slim Jim however choosing peace-
able labor, will gather unto himself a large and comfortable income by
filling Dentes Sapientes with Aurens material-a difficult and dangerous
operation withal. '
YVrite also saying, now in the year nineteen one, during the Exposition
by this generation termed Pan-American, there Shalt roam upon the
grounds thereofa dentist, with the beard of a goat, and his name shalt be
called George. And painlessly shalt he render teeth cadaverous by his new
process of Analgesia, charge being made only for the 'ice used. Or, if chloro.
fbrmmn be employed, the widow wilt be guaranteed her departed husband's
Then inscribe thus the future ofthe man of Reformation fame. Tho! he
may be ever thin, he shalt never be reduced to a H Diet of Worms " by any
manner of means, being neither fish noi'fuzlZ. Nay, Nay! I tell thee Daffy's
Private Asylum for the treatment of insaniated conditions of the dental
apparatus shalt ever be prosperous and well-filled withal.
Oh that voice! How it thrills one I And the recent ambition to work!
How it stills one! But "never mind,'l etc., for be it known unto all ye
mortals that ,tis understood in the Realm of Spirits that one man's future
depends upon his voice. Yet verily, it must be a Methodist voice, and is
Geofs voice a Methodist voice ?-? ? P
f'The Heinen Qbei der Irisher Mick gecalltj is very soon to return to
Deutschland, but the fair shores of America shalt more of him see anon
fmore than they shalt wish vielleidzlj, aber, Harvard's odds in intercollegi-
ate meets wilt jump surprisingly when they hear of his arrival in that
vicinity. lt is probable that his desire for athletic honors, wilt be satiated
in his jumping --- bites. The Irish Mick QNXCL'-nanied by d' Heinej
shalt neler behold the Emerald Isle, but powerful of frame, intellect and
influence, he may become the honored Pwsidemf of the International Dental
Commune, ifhe hath pull enough. Howsomever, it hath not been deter-
mined, but that he shalt shortly be 'LEaZiz'zf0v'6 de Si61'mt0g6 Enyzress-zT0n.6."
Editorials ever from a dental standpoint might instructive to the laity
prove, but nevertheless become painful as a steady diet.
The class containeth others- also in whom lie dormant the qualities
whereupon great futures are to be builded. The manufacturer of sterling
reputation, the eminent specialist, the investigator, discoverer, and
instructor are all represented thereing and nations shalt rise up and call
thy class, the grand old class of Nineteen Hundred, blessed, and the
symbol thereof, as in the early days of College life, shalt be emblazoned
high upon the skylight of Fame.
And the spirit of the class turned upon me her eyes as diamonds shining
and her face, as a flame, and in tone majestic said-"The Words of thy
Prophecy are ended." And I looked and beheld, and saw her no more.

A Tale of a iTaehe
"A Kiltie beam' on zz young 11zfmg1'ew.
Listen io his Zale of woe."
N early Gctober of '99
There came to the College a youth with the rind
And the nerve of one who would be so rash
As to start from the first to raise a moustache.
He was a relic of that famous class '99,
But hadn't the push to keep in the lineg
So he came in one morning and humbly sought
To join that most honorable class of '0O.
Not knowing his niettle we did not say nay,
But could readily see he had never made hayg
And never once thought that he had the brass
As to attempt at the College to raise a moustache
But that moustache grew as some kinds will,
And gathered strength each day until
At last, in spite of all could be said,
That moustache was surely going to be red.
Now a red moustache as is also red hair
Is a thing ofbeauty, rich and rare,
And to have that kid outdo the whole class
Made the boys all down on that red moustache.
He fonclled and curled it and proud ofit grew,
And made a few wish they could grow one too 5
But those who could not-I do not know why-
Grew green with envy and were oft heard to sigh.
Base envy and jealousy they nurtured with care,
And often cried out, "red 'tache and brown hair."
'Till at last it became as a thorn in their side
And ifsomething wasn't done Clark would surely have died
They secretly plotted and planned a disgrace,
For that handsome moustache and a more handsome face
And in Line's laboratory, when labors were o'er,
They jumped him and soon had him down on the iloor
Then Clark pressing forward with scissors in hand,
With the fiendish delight ofloosed spirits long damned,
Went at that line moustache nor stopped he until
His envious spirit had at last had its Hll.
The moustache was ruined, the face must be shorn,
And Waldo now wishes he never was borng
For what will he do when his fingers go there,
Where once proudly iiourished a bunch of red hair.
But lo I what is this that we see two weeks later,
As he enters the halls ofhis proud Alma hlaterg
An embryo shade ofits lost predecessor
And oh, how it cheers its most humble possessor.
And now how he laughs as their eyes oft flash fire,
And how he enjoys their ill-concealed ireg
For again he has something which he may caress,
Another red moustache, no more and no less.
And he says at the finish if all who are there
Will kindly look out for a bunch of red hair,
They'1l find a moustache that has grown such a pace,
That 'tis once more the pride of that handsome young face.

VValdorf had evidently forgotten his whereabouts when one morning recently, in answer
to a quiz, he responded with the usual matrimonial reply, " I will." Heundoubtedlyimagined
himself answering that long wished-for question which requires that answer.
You have all heard the familiar ballad of "Pull for the Shore." But when it comes to
pulling teeth ask Harry Waldorf, for it is said that he pulled for twenty minutes on one tooth
and then had to get two men to help him. " My country but that tooth came hard."
You get no official war news unless you see it in the Toronto Globe. If you don't believe
it ask " Dick" Thompson.

Charlie? Letfer Home
DEAR PA :-
I have got some good news to tell you, so I thought I would write at once. I was elected
to an important oHice in one of the big societies up here. I tell you I am getting to be apopu-
lar fellow. What's the news down home ? I see in the paper that the stage coach is going to
be painted next summer, bright green, with orange trimmings and red running gear. Is there
anything in the report that the painter got an idea of the colors from those socks I wore last
summer? By the way, pa, have you caught any more rats? The boys could hardly believe
that story about the big catch last winter. Let me know how the hunting is. When I go
home I'rn going to shoot all the rabbits there are in Wayne County. Pa, donlt forget about
the rats. Your loving son, CHARLIE.
THE following stanzas were found under Mark Leonard's locker in the senior laboratory
a short time ago. They were inseirbed on highly perfumed paper, and, judgingfrom the strain
in which the author writes, she was evidently very earnest in her pleadings. The simple and
unassuming signature " Trixy " was affixed thereto. Who can the author be?
Darling, dearest, fondly ever
Do my thoughts with thee abide:
Say you love me, now, and never
Let a doubting heart betide.
Only say that you'll be to me
All we used to vow of yore 3
And in life our troubles will be
Little ones and nothing more.

Was He F1'ightenedP Oh, No!
Chased by two coppers, at night they say,
Is an unusual occurrance to come our way.
But a man in our class in his junior year,
Was chased by two coppers, and talk about fear,
Why his face was as white as the sheet on his bed,
And when we got to him we thought he was dead.
But how we lit into those coppers so bold,
Has never been said, but now will be told.
One said, show your badge, so we may be sure,
That you are a copper simple and pure.
One said, what right have you thus to hang on
To a man who has never done any harm.
So at last they saw they were on the wrong street,
And commenced henceforth to beat a retreat.
And Prest he was glad, for by the look in his eye,
You could see that he wasjust ready to cry.
And now, when out he goes for a lark,
He always gets back before it is dark.
And you may be sure tl1e eoppers all show
The respect due to Frank and his friends also.

Powers taking an Elmwood Avenue car during
his Senior year.
1 ' f Aww.
I Ni N
E was a Saratoga lad,
In forethought he is quick,
A 'fPrinter's Devil" once was he
And still goes by the name of "Nick,"
But thinking seriously one fine day,
4 He entered upon this decree,
There was not "mon" enough for two,
So he resolved to follow Dentistry.
Coming to college a little late
He mused of what he would exterpate,
He had good sense and solid reason
And thought not of the act of treason.
When the time came to make his plates,
And deeming they were in grand good shape
He was told to make them o'er and o'er
Until he reckoned he had made four score.
As moments flitted and time did pass
Nick one eve met a fair bright lass,
Some words were spoken, and she did gurgle,
While he was tracing no magic circle.
Time kept passing-a new order of things,
The college-bell for juniors rings,
And Nicholas Powers was there in the race
I mean down "there" at his boarding place.
Now Powers, ajunior bright was he
And thought not of-but what he was free,
But when he had carved one thousand teeth,
He concluded he'd struck the rock of grief.
A Senior now of course is he
And often thinks of his old decree,
He is class president for this year,
And the boys all speak of Nicholas dear.
So he makes a speech before the class-
As a spokes-man too, he all does passg
But his class-mates forgot of his selfreliance,
When he coughed forth his regulating appliance.
Now, he is all that's in his name,
And has certainly vanquished all that cameg
As an operator, too, he is counted a star,
And his fame as a dentist is not afar.
He right does think it not wise to roam,
For he thinks of making Buffalo his future horneg
But who could censure him, now, boys, could you?
When a lady he's found so good and true.
Oh, Nicholas Dear! I hope you'll excuse
Any misrepresented phrase if you chance to peruse,
For at any time, sure, I will gladly unfurl,

Lines on the Rush
N the afternoon of October twelve,
While the Dents in their plaster did dabble and delve,
The Medics and Pharmics determined a raid,
And this is the kind ofa game they played.
They stormed the Lab. ofthe Freshman class,
The Freshmen met them a solid massg
Then Seniors and juniors left work begun,
To help the Medios enjoy their fun,
While plaster rained from a cloudless height,
Till Medics and Pharmics were wigged out white,
The A' dental engines 'I were brought into play,
Skulls, crossbones and forceps were used in the fray.
The Dents drove back the opposing force,
The infirmary patients cheered themselves hoarse,
The raiders abandoned their " Spying Kop,"
Their nervy rush was brought to a stop.
Then back to their quarters the Medics fly,
The Dents right after with whoop and cry,
The medical citadel opens its arm
To save its valiant youngsters from harm.
The Dcnts dash by the frowning door
And boldly mount to the topmost floor,
And capture the room where the " stiffs " are laid,
The room where the surgeons learn their trade.
And one, whose feelings on death were dull,
Seized from the table hapless skull,
Which he horridly hurled at the fighting mass,
As Samson hurled the maxilla of an ass.
Another scaled to a dizzy height,
And captured the pennant of " Blue and Whitey "
And cheers went up from the crowd in the court
When they saw that the Dents had captured the fort
To show their utter contempt of fear,
Two Dents at the third story window appear
And bravely descend, without slip or fall,
The stern outside of the perilous wall.
The Medios and Pharmics, then won over quite
Determined to give them the victor's right,
And borrowed wagons not to them lent
To honor the might ofthe valiant Dent.
And up and down the streets ofthe town
They hauled the Dents with their victor's crown,
And made a terrible hulla-ba-loo,
Till the chariot was stopped by coppcrs blue.
Then hack to the college at haltlpast Hve,
They go, like bees swarming home to their hive.
Those conquering heroes long we'll praise
In tales and stories in future days.
So this is the tale of that fateful day,
That fearful, frightful and frantic fray,
The way that the Medics and Pharrnics tight
Their game that the Dents celebrated that night.
The Dentals routed them tooth and nail.
Next morning the Medics most shamefaced and pale
As gifts to clissectors consigned themselves then,
Cadavers and corpses and remnants ofmen.
QWhile these lines are not, Friend Waugh, the best,
N. B., I did them at your 'requestg
So should stern critics lack in mercy,
Implore their clemency.

1906. James Hicks has settled in practice and met
with a "howling" success.
Under the Cover Glass
NE night on returning from church C?j where I went
For an evening's devotion Catirne quite well spent,j
I fell on my bed and then dreaming I thought
I was dissecting by piecemeal that class of 'O0.
I had selected that smallest of three dental classes,
Had ground it, polished it and mounted on glasses,
Then hied me away with a "thermometer" in hand
To see what was in this diminutive band.
But lo, when I looked I could see nothing there
But what I first thought to be Bodecker's hair,
Then on better adjustments I found out the rip
It was Charlie's small mustache upon a hair lip.
No! No! thought I it is surely not that
And then I soon saw it was only Guy's cat.
I pushed the slide forward and there came into view
The little Hicks brothers of which there were two.
Then came the Thompsons one Dick and A. L.
Dick got hilarious and asked " what 'tell "
Sherwood came next tall, dignified, grand
Helping Willis Holbrook along by the hand.
Sweet dimpled Clarkey then came into view
IV ith Martin behind him in search of a chew.
Then grave "Daddy" Newton so young yet so old
And Griswold our Cuban warrier bold.
Then Hodson came next selling plasters and pills
And jones with a laugh that would give one the chills.
Then Davis I studied whose glasses he broke
While fooling with others while Wettlaufer spoke.
When Luther came under I then had to laugh
To see how his antics appeared through the glass.
Then Ryan came forward with forceps in hand
And Prest with a smile characteristically bland.
Then Morgan came next with goatee of gold
And Bennett sedate and most deucedly cold.
Then Pliney whose theatre song' was a peach
And Kempe who once had a surplus of cheek.
Then Morse whom the boys oft sucessfully guyed
. And Waldorf with his 20th century glide.
Then Gordon and with him a massive foot ball
And Leonard our artist who is not so small.
Then Waldo who sickened us all with his hymns
And Vogel and Smith our medical twins.
Then there at the end yet not quite the last
I saw in Nick Powers the head of the class.
Then last but not least, the smallest yet greatest
Little Waugh with his motto of " Semper Paratusf'
Thus saw I that class as never before
And as to the church, I go there no more.

TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, April, '99.
DEAR DR. BELCHER: A
I have been practicing here since I graduated from the U. of B. one year ago. Then I
expected to revolutionize dentistry, but I have since changed my mind, and I am now after
alittle advice. I am stuck-but my gold wont Mick, even after using varnish. A fellow
across the street recommended me to use sticky fly paper. I-Ie says he has used it for 30 years
and it always sticks, besides keeping the dentine away from the gold. The other day I
extracted an eye tooth for a young woman of middle age,for iniiammation of the Schneiderian
membrane. She says she has always taken Lithia water while talking and a hot foot bath
before retiring. Which do you think the cause of the trouble. I got a nice letter from our
lecturer on operative dentistry recently. He recommends me to use Lithia water. Says it
will be sure to make an operator of me some day. IzVould you extract a second bicuspid
tooth for pus on the brain or comb the hair backward. The president of the fire department
called a month ago. I vulcanized a gold filling into an incisor tooth. I thought it was a
great operation. He had a large funeral. My receipts for the last quarter were 32 bushels of
cross-eyed potatoes, 4 doz. brown leghorn eggs, 4 tons of clover hay, 3 hives of spanish bees
with 4 queens, a pillow case full of apples and a tub of oleo resin butter. I am beginning to
think that two can live as cheaply as one. So don't be surprised to receive "at home" cards.
You may think the style currency here is queer, but I have to take it or get left. Would you
advise me to hang on or accept a position as demonstrator at the U. of B.
Yours in need of advice,
YOUNG WEs'rERNER, D. D. S.
nslaved to Science
HE theory supported by the world's most eminent dental embryologists as to the
etiology of hair-lip has been blasted by the careful and untiring examination of the
large number of cases presenting at our college infirmary.
It has been universally taught that hair-lip occurs as a result of cleft palate, this
being produced by the non-union of the inter and true maxillary bones before the
forty-second to forty-fifth day of embryonic life. That this theory is wrong has been conclu-
The microscopic observations of such men as Kerrick, Luther, Pliny Smith, Davis, Kempe,
Waldorf and a host of others, demonstrate that it may be induced as late as the twentieth to
the twenty-fourth year of adult life.
There seems to be a lack of unity of opinion as to the cause of single and double hair-lip.
Kempe's and Kerriclds investigations lead them to believe that in case of double it is not so
marked on either side, while Smith and Luther observe but little difference in degree between
the double and single.
The first indications also seem as yet to be unsettled. Waldorf claims that the first sur-
face indication is that ofa number of minute red dots, which after some weeks form a some-
what indistinct single row on one side, the other side appearing in precisely the same way,
but not until some months later. Davis has clearly demonstrated that the first distinguish-
ing signs do not appear earlier than fifty to sixty days, and are decidedly dark in color, ap-
pearing on both sides at the same time, and forming two somewhat broken rows.
The hindrance to speech is also commented on, all agreeing that it causes slower enunci-
ation and a puffed-up inflection. This, however, is attributed to cleft brain, and again serves
to disprove the cleft palate theory.
One, james R. Hicks, claims to have discovered distinct rows of a reddish green growth
on the lower as well as the upper lip g but this is altogether unsubstantiated by the previously
quoted exponents. D
While it would be infringing on the province of the surgeon to treat in detail of the opera-
tion, I trust I may be pardoned for adding that the methods have been revolutionized, it being
possible to effect a cure almost painlessly without the use of an anesthetic either general or
A dentist to work on the jaws of death.
A pair of suspenders for the breeches of promise.
A few-seeds from the flowers of speech.
A pair of corsets for the waste of time.
A couple of sea horses to drink out ofthe trough of the sea.

History ofthe Class of IQOI
arrived at the Dental Department by the rear door
They vi ere few in numbers but made their presence felt
V the Hrst day of their arrival, 'lhe first acquaintance
. the Freshmen had with the juniors was when the few,
about twelve in number, began the initiation of some
forty f'Freshies." Coralling them in the Lecture Hall
in the basement, the juniors put them through. This process consisted
principally of making the Freshmen remove sundry parts of their wearing
apparel, eat soap, drink salted milk, chew tobacco, and lastly, the slapper-
etus was applied in the rear. During this initiation, two of the Freshman
class posed for the benefit of the juniors. Behold them as they are! When
too late the Freshmen awoke to find that their humiliation was great, and
that a daring few had 'made sport of the many. To even matters, they at-
tempted to Rush the juniors. They met their waterloo by being cast into
the pit, but took some satisfaction in the fact as one Freshman said-" We
were all in the pit, and that is where we wanted to bef'
After much horse play and Hrough house" the class has finally settled
down to work. To be sure the old spirit of recklessness which has always
distinguished the class of 1901, crops out at certain periods. But when
all is said and done, as one of the instructor's has aptly said: They are the
hardest workers in college and possessed of the most deviltry, foremost
in all amusements and events such as football, track events, hockey, Glee
Club, and in fact having men fit for any and everything. May they push
onward toward graduation, and finally, when the time comes to leave col-
lege, may they leave behind not only the reputation of being the best all-
around class-but also of being the best and most successful in their chosen

H! ONE fine clay early last fall,
When the college had opened to nearly all,
The Medics a " rush" prepared to make:
A terrible thing, 'twas their mistake.
The Dents who had heard ofthe brewing storm
Spoke cheerfully ofthe matter and were not forlorn,
They waited a time when who should appear
But a body of Medics out in the rear.
Down from the laboratory the Dents did come
To rush those Medics, Oh! so burn!
The Freshmen Dents were also there,
The Medics coats and shirts to tear.
The Medics, with hearts so full offears,
Shut their eyes and stopped their ears,
For the noise ofthe Dentals at their door
Was enough for the Medios-they wanted no more.
But, mustering up courage for just one stand,
They made a rush and on the ground did landg
Handled by the Dents, Oh! very easily
For the Medics efforts were truly measly,
They scrapped and tugged as if very strong,
VVhile the Dentals tumbled them down headlong.
They were thrown on the steps, they tumbled and rolled
And stopped outdoors on the pavement cold.
Now, Medics ,dear, a lesson take,
And when a rush you wish to make,
Don't reckon your strength by your big fat men,
For if you do you'll get left again.
But just remember while here you stay,
And save you a great deal of trouble it may-
That the Dental students you cannot bluff,
And the junior Dents are "the only stuff."
G. E. J.
The Wadsworth Five
QHE future is our only thought,
I At U. of B., some training sought,
There many friends by us were made,
As in our "Mothers" halls we strayed,
Friends that for life shall always be,
Whatever is our lot to see.
To know the faces of all we'll strive,
But never forget the "Wadsworth Five."
Two years together we have dined, There always is a time for work,
For better companions never find : To have success we must not sliirk.
Scraps were many and fiercely fought, Our Junior year found time to play,
When some suggested some new thought. But Seniors work through all the day,
Wednesday seemed the favored day, 4 The midnight oil was often burned,
After Rudolph had told his way, As nerves, arteries and veins were learned
Still 'twas not decided quite With our anatoniies often sleep,
Whose opinion was just right. While vigil for the subject keep.
For manyjolly times welve had,
At breaking chairs we're not so bad 3
What mat tered if the spreads were new,
Willis and Frank had them, torn too.
And when some oft used books were thrown,
With falling chimneys came a groan,
We must forego the coming show,
As checks from home were very slow.
When for a song we should make bold,
Not thus, to howl but sing were told 3
But music rare so few digest,
An audience would not invest.
"Rough House" brings memories to mind,
Of acts by chums supremely kind,
Waylays in halls by hands unseen,
And Hying pillows for a screen.
ITH careworn face, and sad eyes blue,
In fi second-Hat room, shut out from view,
Away from the world and its pleasures and joys,
A lialistarved Dental Student his time employs.
To see him sit there would melt, I am sure,
The petrified heart ofa Turk or a Moor,
As he ponders and pores over deep books oflore,
Awhile trying to add to his Physiology store.
The half-heated room is encircled with hooks,
For his wearing apparel, and shelves for his books,
And trunks and valises, and paper in reams,
And a fair smiling photo which before his eye glearns.
Long, Long, through the night and the hours and the chimes
He looks at the picture and thinks of " old times,"
As he sits with a book lying there on his knee
And dreams ofthe pleasure that once used to be.
For of all the keepsakes that garnish his nest,
This one is the dearest, the one he likes best,
And he sits there and learns, though he's but half awake,
And determined the medal to win for her sake.
So from midnight till midnight he's there at his desk
Nor stops till all others have long gone to rest,
Reading notes and dry books in a logical way,
As fondly he sighs for the great closing day.

Notwithstanding the fact that Hotis has a fair one on the east side he still continues his
tri-weekly trips to the west side. By all appearances it is becoming serious for very often in
moments of deep reflection in the laboratory he is heard humming the following:
Colne to my arms fair bundle of charms,
And nestle your head on my breast.
Come whisper me sweetly, you'll do it discreetly.
You love me, you love me the best.
Dr. Snyder.-Mr. Richards will you kindly give the medicinal antidote for poisoning by

Say Boys, take notice to jones hair! It has improved wonderfullyg but that embryo mous-
tache of his has developed as to be worthy of notice. His girl says, " what tickles me is john's
moustache." We have reason to believe that she would give a reward for its removal.
It has become quite a fad with the boys to enjoy a quiet sleep during some of the lectures.
It is hard to say who was the last to succumb to that tired feeling, however, whenlecture was
over, some one overheard the following:
lzVhen will the sleeping beauty wake ?
Oh, let it be soon! Oh, let it be soon!
For Berrick says he takes the cake,
Oh, let be soon! Oh, let it be soon!
When will those orbs now closed in sleep
Unlock their lids and take a peep
At friends who weary vigils keep?
Oh, let it be soon!

History of the Class of IQ02,
I T DIFFERENT times and on many occasions men have gathered
M together with butone purpose and object in view, and it would
be difficult to conceive of a more knowledge-thirsty group of
men than the Freshman class, which assembled in the halls of the
Dental department of the University of Buffalo, September 25th, 1899.
They were mostly strangers to one another, but as geniality is always
associated with the really intelligent, formality was quickly set aside and
they were soon bound in that mutual brotherhood which exists between
individuals who are all striving to attain the same great end.
One of the first acts of the class was its selection of president and other
officers, and it must be said they did themselves credit and selected the
right men for the right places. Though lovers of peace, they were ready to
defend their honor against all corners, and upon receiving a few sarcastic
hints from their Junior friends' which rather reflected upon their strength,
they soon demonstrated the amount of striped muscle the class really pos-
sessed, and to such good purpose as to receive a request to call " it off." It
was through the cool generalship of these young men that an otherwise
successful attack from the medical students was warded off, and their day
turned into night by being driven steadily backward besmeared with plas-
ter and begrimed with dirt into their own buildingg their Hag taken and
itls graceful silken folds unfurled to the gentle breezes which sweep over our
As capable students this class has not only held its own, but in ma.ny
instances, as in acids, bases and salts has broken all records and bids fair
to be a glittering star whose brilliancy many a class must strive hard to
attain. Scarcely an incident happened that disturbed the smooth even
tenor of the class till after the holidays, when to the sorrow and regret of
all, it was announced that the lectures the class were receiving from Dr.
Fred. J. Gieser were to cease, and that their professor, who twice a week
had met the boys with a pleasant smile, and whose voice had so often filled
the auditorium, was from thenceforth to remain silent. Standing by his
post to the last, this man for years had successfully instructed many classes
in the science of chemistry, and had used every effort in his power to make
his department stand first in the college. Finding the strain too great
upon his health he was obliged to resign, and in doing so there is extended
to him, from every student, a sincere hope of a speedy recovery. Words
cannot express our sympathyg he was, he is our friend.
The pleasant and friendly relationship which exists between professor
and student is very marked, and in such cases more rapid progress is al-
ways made. In the laboratory, the class under the guidence of Dr Geo. B
Snow, has showed remarkable mechanical skill andgtheir work is. quickly
and well done.
Class Songs, Iooz
UST hold your peace a moment and we'll tell a tale to you
About a class ofjolly dents billed tor 1902,
N. O! the Seniors call us fresh and the juniors say we're tame,
But they find when ere we have a rush, we get there just the same
Hurrah for the 'Varsity, Hurrah for Buffalo,
Hurrah for U. of B., U. B. tra la la. la,
And we hope for its existence, we'll magnify its fame,
Do all within our power to perpetuate its name.
We're taught by Drs. Snider, Madden, Geiser and Snow,
Also Drs. Himmelsbach, and Haller you all know
They're a bustling lot of fellows and try to rnalie us git,
But compared to Dr. Barrett, they are nit, nit, nit.
Hello ye Medics, Hello ye Pharmics. Hello ye legal lights,
Golly but you are frights, why don't you stay in nights,
If you don't cram, you'll miss your exam,
Then you'll be left alone, for your Marr1ma's wont take you back home.
From his perch of dusty books on high
From the solemn owl there comes this cry,
Men who begin life's work as ye men do
Will be graduated as dentists' in 1902.

The Freshmen Dents
We are Dents ofthe U. B. college
We came here to gain some knowledge,
The best instruction they are giving
To teach us how to make a living.
You may think us gay for freshmen
We'll sober down by the end of the session,
Then you'll see we are no blui'
But the freshman class is red hot stufi
We are working night and day
To learn to use the impression tray,
XVe will soon our business know
For we're instructed by Dr. Snow.
VVe all have hopes in 1902
With the U. B. college to be through
And so in Buffalo rests our fate
For its the onh college in the state.
The clank of bones we often hear
And We hail them with a hearty cheer,
Ofcourse you see we know our biz.
For we often listen to a Hiffzvzzelsbach quiz.
Small jokes and lectures ofgreat length
That " the use of an organ determines its
Is pounded in us until we pallor
By a Well-known teacher Dr. Haller.
If you mention CZ7li1IlllZ,5 teeth we sadden
For we get this lecture from Dr. Madden,
Of the annelids sharks and snakes we learn
Old mallusks bats and e-chin-o-derns.
But there's 0116 more g'7'6lZf, and large and tall
And he acts as the father of one and all,
To him We go with our wrongs and joys
For Dr. Barrett's a friend ofthe boys.
I must not longer your attention keep
Behold for once a gigantic feat
That of thrashing the Medics too
Was the act of the class of 1902.

Class of joz.
N the fall of the year of ninety-nine
gy We left our happy homes,
The L. B. winding stairs to climb,
To listen to old drones.
LG Eg T
We met thejolly good old Dean,
Who shook us by the hand,
And when the college we had seen,
Thought we had struck rich land.
He directs us to a boarding houseg
Fine lady,-place quite niceg
Two weeks gone by, she'd skin a mouseg
We'd rather be on ice.
We turn from boarding house to class,
Very proudly we march ing
Here we are handed a H babies glass "
And told to pitch right in,
The juniors think thisjolly sporty
They stand us on our ear.
We fear our life on earth is shortg
To heaven we draw near.
Very soon we learn a trick or twog
Our strength is great as theirs
So our sturdy class, of Nineteen-Two,
Rushes them all down stairs.
The medics, rnen ofgreat renown,
Next appear upon the scene:
So we help, our father "Dents," to crown
Our college with laurels green.
But, as the term is flying by,
To lectures we must gog
And spend an hour of kiln dried dry,
Administered by Dr. Snow.
But often times he mixes itg
The wind begins to blow,
And the good old Dr. takes a pit,
Of Snowing Snowls own Snow.
Then We get H2 SO4 g
Hay foot, straw foot, tramp some more
Gieser's grudge upon the floor,
To "Chicago Man," would be labor.
Himmelsback tells of Recticus Anticus,
Posticus Pollicus Lateralicusg
Hear our Maxillaries cuss at all ofthisg
How we wish it was in Had
Forget this! but remember you heard,
" How the horse can drink up hill,
How the row
with Haller occuredg
Fishermen kept it still.
What the use of an organ determines,
What an artist our Dr. H isg
And how to pronounce the Word " stomick
Snider soakes us once a week,
But, he does it so very nice,
You cannot hear a single squeak
When you answer in Haller's quiz."
For we keep as quiet as mice.
He tells us, when our stomachs ache,
'vVe've been out
the night before,
And if we should some arsenic take,
Toward heaven we would soar,
The dentition of monkeys and tadpoles,
The dentition of Amoeba's neat,
Are the things, which madden Carrolls,
Our little friend in chemistry,
When he meets us once a week.
Though late upon the scene,
Has shown 4' the boys of Dentistry,"
He's not so very green,
But, if you want to see some fun,
You'll find the boys keep H very mum QQ ,
If someone hits you
Come with us to our lab.g
As at their work they dab.
with a cast,
Or if it's only bricks,
just close your eyes as they Hy past,
They're only Freshman tricks.
You see that crowd, at the farthest end,
Very busy they seem to beg
That's Sadie Shake, and her gallant men
Who are bossed by Mclntee,
Friends! To Dr. Isham next,
Your attention we would call.-
Though by the freshmen, often vexed,
He's a good friend of us all.
He's ably backed by "Jake,', forsooth
His movement plainly shows,
That he can handle any tooth,
That ever grew under a nose.
Together, this amiable tandem,
Wile the hours away,
Teaching us how to handle
The compound, wax and tray.
CLabratory Golden Rule.j
Plaster casts and rubber,
Gumteeth, shellac and sand
Borrowed from each other,
Returned to another man,
Now, our exams are drawing nigh,
We introduce a word, that's new,
Its " plug "5 Oh! hear the freshmen sigh,
They fear, in spring, they'll not get through.
But the Dr. loves his sons,
And the boys love Barrett toog
So just watch the Dean's loved ones,
He's sure to shove us through.
Now every puppy has his day
Every Prof. has his day too
And boys it sure to come our way
In the year of Nineteen-Two.

Called Dents, Dents,
Anxious to make for themselves a name

And with them mopped up the Courtyard and lane.
Then rushed them through their College again
Did the Dents, Dents, Dents."
'I From the Medical College they took the Hag
They did, they did
From their windows they Hoated that beloved rag
They did, they did.
The Medies soon passed the word around
And every Pharrnic was quickly found X
Together they swore they'd pull the shack down,
Of the Dents, Dents, Dentsf'

And bricks-and sticks,
They broke for a freshman his collar bone
But as before, the Dents of fighting fame
Again with them mopped up the Courtyard and lane
Then rushed them through their College again

fx! TUDENT bodies have always shown a tendency to form
themselves into clubs or societies for various purposes,
7 , whether social, political or literary. -In the United
' ' States-and this is particularly an American institution
2, 5 I although it resembles the German Corps in spirit-a
V class of societies has arisen which are commonly known
"CA ' as "Secret" or "Greek Letter" societies, but whose
"Q,-14 A members designate them as " Fraternities." The establish-
ment ofthe system probably began with collegiate educa-
tion, but the first American Greek letter society was the Phi Beta Kappa
qw 1? KJ founded at William and Nfary College in 1776. It soon enlarged
with branches or "chapters " as they are called, at Yale and Harvard, but
in 1780 the Revolutionary Vlfar compelled the parent branch to cease its
existence on account of the military maneuvers about Williamsburg.
Since 1776, the number of fraternities formed has been legion, the great-
est activity bein gin the -.LOls and 5O's. The great center for their development
was naturally in the East, while the South furnished a fruitful ground for
chapters. The majority of the latter were wiped out during the Rebellion,
when collegiate life came to a standstill as every male able to bear arms
was at the front. After the war many of the chapters were reorganized
and resumed relations with the Northern Fraternities, some were made
into new organizations, while others ceased to exist.
Prior to the Rebellion, each chapter ruled itself with but small heed to
the parent stem, but in the latter part of the sixties the need for closer or-
ganization was felt, which resulted in the development of a head or " Grand
Chapterw-usually the first, which had executive and legislative powers, and
secondary chapters which were ruled by the Grand Chapter. By this
arrangement the whole fraternity was brought into closer contact, since
furthered by annual re- unions, dinners and meetings. At these times dele-
gates are sent from the various chapters who discuss and assist in the wel-
fare of the society.
The present tendency for the great fraternities is to concentrate their
influence and power by abolishing the outlying chapters or those from
which no benefit is received. New chapters are only formed. after consider-
able thought, and it has been said that the establishment of a chapter of a
powerful fraternity at certain colleges means more to that institution than
money bequests or legislative grants of land. This may be thought to be
too exaggerated a statement, but if one remembers that the qualifications
necessary for entrance to any fraternity are based on that which is best in
every man, associated often with position and money, one can readily see
that the fraternity men as a class represent the best and most powerful in-
fluence that the college can put forth. It has been said that there are
140,000 fraternity men in the United States with 1,150 chapters represent-
ing many hundreds ofthousands of dollars, so one can see the force of the
As in colleges, so in fraternities, the alumni must be held for its success
and advancement. Many of the societies have recognized this by forming
clubs in the larger cities, the qualification for membership being either a
diploma or graduation of the member's class. Their purpose is to keep
alive fraternity spirit and interest which in turn benefits both the society
and the college which they represent.
The characteristically narrow minded position which Princeton took
long ago in abolishing the fraternities has done more to deprive her of stu-
dents than anything else which she has done. The establishment of a
fourth body-that is, one distinct from the faculty, the trustees and the
student body as a whole-has been most bitterly resented and opposed by
the faculty, who did not wish anything to be organized which they could
not control. The trustees in many institutions Qto quote from a reprint
from the " Beta Theta Pi "J are composed of an inordinate number ofclergy-
men, inexperienced in business or professional ways, who know nothing of
fraternity work or spirit. Notwithstanding this opposition, fraternities
have flourished and finally-because of their members wielding so much
influence-have by a united effort in many instances forced the institutions
to recognize their rights and have 'often dictated the policy of the college.
This has been done through the alumni, who of all men should have a voice
in the general management of the institution. To-day the strongest uni-
versity is the one which has the largest number of chapters of the great
fraternities, and each year the faculties of the various colleges, instead of
opposing, are courting the establishment of chapters. President Schurman
of Cornell, and Harper of Chicago, seek Greek Letter Societies, grant land
for chapter houses on college property, and do all in their power in foster-
ing them towards success. i
If I were asked " Should a man join a fraternity P " I should answer " By
all means if he can get in." For if a student could understand the pleasures
and fraternal spirit of the years when he is in college, the bonds which one
cannot define, yet exist after graduation, he would be most anxious to be
a member of a society. Even tho' a man belongs to a different society, yet
he is a fraternity man, and as such receives more consideration than one
who is not. If they knew of the various vicissitudes through which the
early societies passed during the Revolutionary War, of sectional feeling
brought on during the Civil War, of financial difficulties-even bankruptcy,
which have been safely weathered by some of the now most powerful fra-
ternities, those who belong to one which may be struggling for existence
would not be discouraged. Many of the greatest organizations to-day
have started in the most humble manner. The writer knows of one whose
first meetings were held in an attic over one of the buildings in Princeton,
of another which prides itself on the social position of its members whose
"chapter house " was an old canal boat in New Jersey.
A In regard to the local fraternities at the University of Buffalo, the out-
look should be bright. Each has its quarters and an active undergraduate
membership. What to the writer's mind is the most important work ahead
for strength is first to attract and hold the alumni by meetings and re-
unions Next the establishment of chapters in good professional schools
not too far from Buffalo, for instance Syracuse and Albany. When these
are well organized branch out farther as, for example, Cleveland, New York
and Boston. In other words establish chapters among which communica-
tion is easy and frequent, and soon a body of men, well trained and influen-
tial, will be formed, who-clinging together-will be of mutual aid,
assistance, and powerful for their common ends and professional practice.

I. C. I. History, 'oo
S THE last College year of the Nineteenth Century is drawing to its
by close, it finds I. C. I. looking proudly forward to a bright and
promising future. A glance at the past record of the society,
reveals a list of achievements, covering a period of over forty years,
the attainment of which has been characterized by its unsurpassed scholar-
ship, and jealous maintainance of professional honor, due to its limited,
and exclusive membership.
Our Annual Banquet, the last notable
advice of many of our alumni, celebrated
what has been the custom.
The present college year finds us with
History, a fact due chiefly to the advent
now on the roll, Hfty-two active members,
event of the year, was, on the
on lines entirely different from
the largest membership iniour
of the fourth class. There are
every man of whom is imbued
with the I. C. I. spirit, and who will do all in his power to reach the goal
set by the founders of the society.
One of our pet schemes which will mature this year, is our HI. C. I.
Annual," a publication which will be of interest to every I. C. I. man,
Alumnus or undergraduate. It will be a veritable I. C. I. encyclopedia,
embracing all the notable events in the history of the Society, and contain-
ing the Autobiographies of all its Alumni.
Another scheme was inaugurated with our last class, that of an I. C. I.
Diploma, a piece of "Sheep" which will serve oft to remind him of the
happy and profitable hours spent in I. C. I.
The social event of this year has been the annual "Smoker," which was
given at the beginning of the year. 'Work has continued since that time,
interrupted only by that best of all vacations,-Christmas, with its gas-
tronomic feats, and all the other good times it brings. Examinations only
will show how successful this work has been: but if attention and zeal
count for anything, our prospects indeed are bright.
One of the fondest hopes of our founders is soon to be realized, as this is,
we are assured, to be the last year spent in rooms not our own. When the
next college year rolls around, thanks to the generosity of our Alumni,
and the efforts of our active members, I. C. I. will be established in a home
of her own. That this assurance may become a certainty, and that I. C. I.
may make a rapid progress toward the Goal of complete success, is the wish
of the HISTORIAN.

HE .4 S2 J fraternity is happy to say that this, the 21st year of its
existence is one of unusual prosperity.
Our state charter, granted in 1893, gives us recognition under
her laws and serves to make more permanent if possible the liberal
yet ample constitution and by-laws under which we exist. An honorable
graduation from U. Fm. and proper standing in membership entitles to
honorary degree from the Fraternity, with a certificate of the same.
The Social side of our fraternal life is becoming more of a feature than
in the past, and we now aim to have a smoker during the early part of the
year, where the members and their friends meet after vacation, renew old
friendships and form new ones. This feature has been much enjoyed during
preceding years, and we trust that it will bejoyously looked forward to in
years to come. The banquets at the latter end of each year only need
mention here, as all the boys appreciate the good times they afford us.
The fundamental objects of this Fraternity are never forgotten, in fact,
some feel that hard work is too strongly insisted upon. A systematic
course of quizzing is laid out for each class, and the various subjects
taught at college are thoroughly reviewed and studied in this course.
The class members are encouraged to do work in quizzing their fellows, and
Professors of various departments show a personal interest by frequently
coming in to give free instruction. '
Members ofthe Faculty show regard for our efforts by giving interesting
talks, and by their presence at socials during the year, which is very pleasant
and reassuring for both the officers and the members of the order.
A S2 A has become so large and important that it seriously feels the
need of a permanent home of its own. Consequently there has been pro-
jected a scheme to secure one, which so far has been very satisfactory, and
promises before many years to provide a good commodious building,
designed especially for its needs.
With kindest regards to the many members of the Faculty, and to the
Professors, who have so greatly helped and encouraged us in our workg
and also with liberal and friendly feelings toward our sister societies and
all of our fellow students in Medicine, and to the students of the various
departments of the University, we will close our narrative for the season
Liberality and kind usage

S. E. V.
HE Woman's Medical Club of the University of Buffalo, made its
advent in the career of club life, October sixth, eighteen hundred
eighty-eight, when a few women held an impromptu meeting, in
the old College building, on the corner of Main and Virginia Streets,
for the purpose of acting upon the question of the organization of a society,
whose aim was to be mutual assistance.
The first regular meeting was held at the Woman's Union, Niagara
Square and the society was christened the S. E. V.
The honor of the first presidency was conferred upon Dr. Colegrove, who
proved herself more than worthy, by the zeal and enthusiasm with which
she labored, in her efforts to make the society a working one. That her
efforts were crowned with success is evidenced by the work done by herself
and the subsequent presidents. Last year was especially fruitful, the result
of the president, Dr. jenning's earnest and faithful labors. This year's
president, Miss Anna Warnecke, is also most faithful in her efforts to keep
the Club in active work.
That the organization has accomplished its object of mutual assistance
is proven beyond a doubt. Saturday evening usually finds the women
students of the University quizzing each other, or being quizzed by some
kind hearted medical woman, or man, and each member, at the close of the
quiz, offers up a silent 'tthank you " to the organizers of the S. E. V.
Each member takes an active part, in this way an individual interest is
felt, and at the close of its twelfth birthday S. E. V. can boast of an equality
to the other societies of the University of Buffalo.
At the close of each -year the club has "gathered round the festive
board" in honor of the senior students, when a joyous reunion of its old
members is enjoyed by each and all.
Last year the society adopted an ensignia of which it is quite boastful,
being " The Crescent and the Star." HISTORIAN.

Omega Upsilon Phi
0 N NOVEMBER of 1894-, at the University of Buffalo, a party of medical
7 students organized what was designed to be a quiz club. Numerous
meetings were held at the rooms of various members, and finally other
students were invited to join. In this manner the club progressed,
A confining its membership to the class of '97. until later in February,
1896, when the organization became one of the recognized societies of the
department. It rented a house on upper 'Washington street and there held
its first initiation.
In April of the same year, a spirit of unrest began to pervade the ranks
of the youthful aspirants for college honors. It was suggested that the
name O. C. P. was not appropriate, and that the narrow confines of one
school were far too small for the full exercise of the ambition of its mem-
bers. Accordingly it was decided that O. C. P. should undergo reorganiza-
tion, and that her future should lie in the path of a Greek letterifraternity,
confined to medical students.
The following September a flat on Main street, near the college, was
rented and furnished, and here began the history of Omega Upsilon Phi, for
such was the name selected for the new organization. O. C. P. was trans-
formed into Alpha Chapter, and the members initiated, the work progress-
ing under a new constitution and ritual.
The college year of '98-399 brought many changes. With the consolida-
tion of Niagara with University of Buffalo, Beta Chapter of the University
of Niagara surrendered its charter, and its members were transferred to
The growth ofthe fraternity has not been accomplished without diffi-
culties. Set-backs have pointed out faults and shown the way to better
things. They have served but to cement its members more firmly together,
until now they stand 250 strong, scattered over 25 States and six foreign
countries, a bond of union and brotherhood existing between them all.
Of the future, Omega Upsilon Phi has much to expect. Extension is
being pushed in the best colleges in the land, and before another year rolls
around Omega Upsilon Phi will undoubtedly be the largest, as well as the
best organization of its class.

A most important step was taken last year, 1899-being the tenth
anniversary-by the inauguration of the Beta Chapter at Pittsburgh, in the
Pittsburgh College of Pharmacy.
A committee with Wm. H. Wood, N. S.-at the head, duly commissioned
to install the new officers,-assisted by H. M. Gates, H. H. Coulson, B. R.

Financially the Alpha Chapter is in excellent condition.
Provision is made for present needs for extension of the Fraternity, and
for a permanent fund.
The Library and other equipment for enhancing the Educational Factor

Phi Delta Phi
HE national fraternity of Phi Delta Phi was founded at the Law
School of the University of Michigan in 1869. Membership in the
.fraternity was then, as it is now, limited to the legal profession.
The particular purpose of the organization as stated in the pre-
amble to its constitution was "To promote a higher standard of
ethics and culture, in this and other law schools, and in the profession at
The peculiar merit claimed by this organization is, that in addition to
to the good fellowship and social advantages gained by its members, it
aims to supplement in every manner possible the actual work of the Law
School. In one college it may be by holding quizzes, in another by working
on practice, and in others, as our own, by combining with these a moot
court. The advantages of such work as this can be appreciated only by
those who have enjoyed membership in such an organization, the aim of
which has been not only pleasure but also a little work now and then.
In the early history of the fraternity the parent chapter controlled the
'Ufrat " policy, and she continued to do so until the first National Conven-
tion of the organization which was held in 1882 at Ann Arbor, Michigan.
iSince that time the organization has been governed by an executive council
elected by the active chapters. The second convention was held in 1899 at
New York city, and the third in 1893 at Chicago. Since that time these
conventions have been held every second year at some large city, the last
being held at Ann Arbor, last fall.
So far as the local chapter is concerned it has always tried to maintain
the high standard which the National Fraternity has set. The Daniel's
Chapter was founded in 1891, being the first society of its kind at the Law
School. Its graduates have been some of the most honored of the school,
and many of them are now holding enviable positions as members of the
bar of this and other cities. One characteristic which distinguished the
local chapter probably more than any other, is that it has been composed
for the most part of men who are graduates of literary colleges.
With such a history Phi Delta Phi will take a place second to none in
the advancement of the Law School and of the University.

Lawson Tait, F. R. C. S.
Edin. and Eng., LL.D., M.D., tH0n0ri.v Cammy.
' "Q O THE young man or woman about to begin his or her career as
ay' a practitioner of medicine, the perusal of Lawson Taitls life
,y K f-Q cannot fail to be of interest and profit. It is the story of a man
I K who began life as a poor boy, and ere he ended it, had planted
K, NL.,-B s his feet firmly upon the topmost round of that ladder of fame and
K, ,Q , . .J success which we all aspire to clnnb. But even for him the
ascent into those higher altitudes was by no means easy. Though
endowed with a superior mind, tireless energy and vaulting ambition he encountered
diiiiculties which would have appalled a lesser man. Opposition, however, was to
him a stimulant rather than a depressant. His opinions were not hastily formed,
but were rather the logical outcome of persistent study, intelligent observation and
large experience. Once convinced of a proposition's truth he dinned it into the ears
of his professional brethren till persistent reiteration overcame prejudice, disarmed
opposition and secured its acceptance.
But was his career an ideally successful one? That he vastly bettered the con-
dition of his fellowman is not to be gainsaid: yet, alas! the price paid was pitifully
great. Fifty-four was the tale of his years, and another quarter-century of life was
only a reasonable expectancy: but all these days of ripeness were sacrificed upon
the altar of labor unremitting, relentless. Had he but tempered his work more with
play, had he accorded to his body but a tithe of the exercise which he forced upon
his willing brain, preserving thereby a normal equilibrium, both he and the world
would have profited much.
Born in Edinburgh on the first of May, 1845, he entered Heriot's Hospital, an
institution founded by George Heriot for the maintenance and education of fatherless
boys, at the early age of seven: and eight years later began his medical studies in
his native city. From 1860 to 1866 he pursued his professional training in intimate
association, as pupil and assistant, with Sir James Simpson, ranking as a brilliant
student and a frequent contributor to papers and journals. In 1866, after qualify-
ing as licentiate in medicine and surgery, he left Edinburgh and visited the medical
schools of Dublin and elsewhere till, in 1867, he succeeded Dr. Milner Fothergill as
House Surgeon to Wakefield Hospital, his first ovariotomy was performed,
.Iuly 29th, 1868, when he was 23 years of age. In 1870 after receiving his Edin-
burgh fellowship, he removed to Birmingham, the scene of his subsequent life-work,
the theatre which, beheld the brilliant rise, the glorious culmination and tragical
warning of his surgical career. Though located at irst in a suburb, the restless
energy of Mr. Tait kept him constantly in evidence. He furnished many leading
articles for the "Morning News," whose editor was a strong personal friend, wrote
on medical topics for journals, was prominently interested in the various medical
societies, promulgated his views fearlessly and was ever ready to fight for his
opinions. Later he established himself in a more central location as a consulting
surgeon, giving lectures on Physiology to the ladies' class at the Midland Institute
as a diversion. The alarming mortality then prevailing among women and the very
inadequate provision made in the general hospitals for their proper treatment soon led
to the establishment of a womanis hospital, the surgency of which was given to Mr.
Tait. A preliminary requirement was the F. R. C. S. Eng. degree, and the energy
and success displayed in its attainment convinced his professional brethren of his
superior ability. Now began the golden period of Mr. Tait's career, his surgical
work and writings bringing him fame throughout the civilized world.
In 1890 Mr. Tait probably reached the zenith of his career. At that time he
was Bailiff of Mason College and Professor of Gynecology at Queen's College, and to
him was intrusted the address on surgery before the British Medical Association
which met in Birmingham. In 1892 he finally succeeded in his efforts to transfer
the medical school of Queen's College to Mason College, and thus smoothed the way
to the future University of Birmingham. It was during this year, 1892, that I was
associated with Mr. Tait, and even during my stay, rumors of impending misfortune
to the master were afloat. The press joined in spreading disquieting reports. It
was said- that Mr. Tait was about to leave Birmingham and locate in London or
In 1893 symptoms of renal trouble supervened, to which he was doubtless pre-
disposed by reason of his sedentary habits and accumulating worries. I-Ie wrote me
that he had just recovered from an attack of renal colic and that it was his intention,
in the event of another, to abandon active work. In 1893 he resigned his college
duties and gave up his surgical work in the Hospital for VVomen. His professional
activity and wonted interest in public affairs waned and he led a life of se1ni-retire-
ment in his country residence, eight miles from Birmingham.
Pathetic in its rapidity was Mr. Tait's downfall from the surgical eminence to
which his supreme ability and dauntless courage had carried him. The patients
who in other days had flocked to his doors still came, but in diminishing numbers.
Still, he worked on by sheer force of will, and in 18941 his "General Summary of
Conclusions from 4,000 Consecutive Cases of Abdominal Sectioni' appeared in print.
In 1898 he took up his residence in Llandudno, XVales, visiting his rooms in New-
hall St., Birmingham, weekly to see patients and perform operations till the end
came. His last piece of surgery, a perineorrhaphy, was done in Birmingham on
the 25th of May, 1899.

Psalm of College Life
ELL me not, oh sporty fellow,
College life's an empty dream!
For the student's lost, that tritles:
Sees things only as they seem.
A quiz is real I-I'm in earnest-
Five should never be the goal,
Days of care and nights of pleasure
Never tempt the student's soul.
Not enjoyment, but employment
Is our destined end or wayg
We must study, that to-morrow
Find us wiser than to-day.
The term is short and time is fleeting,
And our hearts, both stout and brave
Never still their hurried beating
As we ever onward slave.
In the long, hard round of duties,
'Mid the stream of college life,
Be not like a stupid blockhead.
Come with "Honors" from the strife.
Trust not Fortune-fickle maiden-
You will from the right be led,
Work, work, in the busy present,
Conscious of reward ahead.
Day by day, we are reminded
Not to trifle with our time,
And at closing, leave behind us
Records that will be sublime.
Records that the next year's students,
Toiling on with might and main,
Homesick, saddened and discouraged,
Seeing, may take heart again.
Let us then continue plugging,
Uncornplaining meet our fate 5
A Always onward , persevering-
Learn to labor and to wait.

Strange Visitors or the Foolish Tale
of a Foolish ad
5'""''IIIZIJLE'""'QiZ11'Qjj ""' HIS was the night before Charleyls exam. You know what that was.
IVell, the night was almost as bad and stormy-and that is put-
' .5 E-.A:1.j':, E . . ' . . . . '
Qijf f ting a little too much high-light on the picture. I had been work-
ing pretty diligently at my Lawson and Hopkins and had quite
forgotten about the hour. My head was getting to be rather
drowsy and propositions didn't want to unravel themselves as
agreeably as usual. So I took a good long stretch and wide and
generous yawn, blinked once or twice, and linally settled back to try once more.
But it seemed as though the light of my soul had burned almost as low as my
lamp. Outside the wind was having a jolly timeg now it seemed to bring weird
and grewsome groans as from a graveyard, now to shriek and yell as though some
foul deed were crying for light and justice, then again to laugh and bang up against
my window as though making sport at my fears. And through the lulls and
intervals came the scratch, scratch, of some weazen-faced mouse trying to satisfy its
appetite on my wood-work.
I wasn't paying attention to anything in particular, when of a sudden things
began to move on my book-shelf, where I kept my old school books. A dim,
shadowy figure, dressed in an ancient costume, began to develop shape and slowly
stepped down to the floor. It had on a toga. At least I think that's what it was.
It reminded me exactly of the pictures in my history of Rome. His face was
shaven and full with strongly set jaws. I-Ie was bald excepting where the hair
dropped out like a wreath about the head. Under his arm he carried a large roll of
parchment upon which were characters quite unknown to me. The while I intently
followed up all his movements, he did not discover my presence. Just then another
figure came through the wall. I do not know how he did it: but so he came. This
one, who was also dressed in an ancient manner, was bearded, and very majestic in
stature. "I-Iello! Cicero,f7 he said. 'Wlfhyl how do you do? Demosthene," said
the other but without looking up from the parchment spread out before him. "It' s
a bad night, isn't it? I have these resolutions drawn up as you see. I think they' ll
just suit the occasion? ' "IV ell, I hope they will. Its about time we put a check
on that fellow's importunings and exactionsf'
I was just getting interested when another gentleman appeared. I-Iis dress was
entirely diiferent from that of the others. He had wooden shoes on, brown knee-
breeches with big bows at the knee, heavily knitted red stockings, and a short blue
coat. His hair falling over the ears, and the back of the head was cropped otf just
above the collar-to all appearances a Dutchman. HIV hy! thereis Bynkershoeckj'
exclaimed Cicero. HSure enoughf' replied Demosthenes. "Hello, you Dutchman:
and what do you think of the Boers now, eh?l' But the one addressed only smiled
grimly and disdained to answer. HThey7re a foolish lot, anyhow,' ' said Cicero with
a wink to his companion. But Bynkey saw him and grew irate. "You two bloom-
ing idiots had better talk about justice and the sacred rights of freedeom. You
make ine speeches and write lengthy treatises on the laws of nations in which you
defend the cause of weak and liberty-seeking communities and now you come and
take the part of that monster of iniquity, the English Government. 7'
"lVhat,s that?'7 came in an angry tone from behind me. I' involuntarily
started and saw a queer looking igure in a white wig and a long black robe trimmed
with ermine. A pair of heavy-gold spectacles rode the nose and over them two
piercing eyes glared at the Dutchman. 'iWhat's that you say?" he said once more
in a voice that was visibly agitated. But Bynkershoeck looked quite innocent and
calm. " You crazy Dutchmen are always causing trouble aren't you? You big
block-headsf' continued the one offended. "Yes, and you seem to be getting the
most of it, too,, 3 was the Dutchman's reply. f'Ha! I guess he's right. Lord
Coke. I guess he' s right," said Cicero, whereat the face -under the wig grew very
red. t'But I guess we had better drop the subjectf' said the voice of one who
evidently had just arrived and overheard some of the talk. HIV hy! How do you
do, Mr. Kent?,',' came in a chorus from those present. They seemed to regard the
new-comer with much aifection and attention. I guess they must have had good
cause for it. Indeed in the course of affairs, I saw Coke whisper into Kent' s ear
and heard him say UI can never forget how kindly you treated me in your Com-
mentaries. You dear Mr. Kent." Immediately after these eifusive greetings
another stranger came in. His dress was of the sixteenth century style-high-
heeled boots with fancy bows thereon, tight-fitting thigh breeches, a gayly decorated
sword at the side, a greyLhat with a large rim and a feather waving thereon. They
addressed him as Grotius. He also was very deferential to Mr. Kent and shook his
hand long and warmly. His welcome was scarcely over when a bright costumed
and perfumed gentleman, decorated with crosses and medals and a gold handled
sword came in. His step and appearance were those of a courtier. "Ah, Lord
Bacon, and how do you do?" said this one, then that. t'Pleasa.nt evening," mum-
bled Cicero absent-mindedly. 'tYes, very,'7 answered the Lord with a sneer as he
shook the rain from his hat.
'tNow Chitty's the only one missing isn't he?" queried Demosthenes. "IV ell,
I guess not," answered a new and shrill voice, and in stumbled a hungry-looking
individual with bright eyes and an eziceedingly shrewd and thoughtful brow.
During all this I was quite unobserved and isolated. Cicero was iidgeting with
his parchment and hemming and hawing as though preparing for an oration. In
fact all the members of the assembly had found a resting place here and there and
prepared themselves to listen, when those sharp, bright, eyes of Chitty discovered
me. I didn't know what to do at iirstg but only returned the stare. But his gaze
was too much for me. I began to grow nervous and twisted about a little in my
chair. And this attracted the attention of all. "IVell, I declare,'7 came in a
chorus. f'Sayl what are you doing here?" asked Cicero, who evidently was their
spokesman. My voice seemed rather tied down, but I finally forced enough of it to
tell them that I was studying for a contract examination. ffHum, that's something
new to me,'l muttered Cicero. UMe, too,ll said several others. But Chitty only
glared first at me and then the book. Queries and anwers became frequent until I
had told them all about it. Then there was a silence, an ominous silence. Chitty
moved over to where I was. I would have gotten out of his way, but something
held me down. He picked up the bool: before me, scrutinized the printing on the
title page, and with an awful scowl and sneer muttered through clenched teeth.
ULawson? IV hy don't you use mine?" Then he put the book back again. IVhew!
this was growing oppressive. My heart was knocking pretty hard and I didn't
know what else might come. But summoning all the courage still left in me I
answered: 'fIVhy! Charley makes us use thatfl 'fCharley'? Xlfhose Charley'?'7 was
the cry. 'tCharley Norton, professor at the Buialo Law Schoolf' ftOh, yes, I've
heard of l1l111,, 7 said Kent. All the others listened. "Yes, some young fellow that
came into this world short time ago told 1ne of Charley. He tells me Charley's
very strict and causes alot of trouble. He's almost as bad as Satanf' HIs that
so?'l said I, in surprise. The comparison was quite new to me, though very
interesting. f'Yes, you see fthis is Ciceroj 5 ,we have formed a debating club of our
own to discuss questions of law, Satan was elected president and chairman ex-
officio. IV e had to do it for political reasons. But he made it too warm for us.
He knows so much about evading the law that the law itself is as an open book to
him. He becomes our teacher and started to give exams. IVe just had one. It
was something terrible-terrible. In fact that is the reason why we are assembled
here and I there he drew himself up at full lengthj have composed these resolutions
to protest against his unusual and exorbitant deniandsf'
I was just going to give a good hearty laugh, for I found a strange similarity
in this to something in my own life, when I met Chitty' s gaze. It was extremely
pitiful and deeply replete with scorn. I shivered and quivered under the glare of
those eyes, when suddnely there was a crash. I started up. The lamp was almost
out and shedding light only in fitfull starts. I rubbed my eyes again and again 5
but all those strange figures had gone. Everything else was the same as before save
my Hopkins, which had fallen from my hands to the floor, and the wind was still
howling and groaning, and the mouse was still scratching and scratching. The
fingers on the clock were pointing to twelve.

G' E' J' HEARTS BE-I'IEAYY.y'
The Theatre Party of'99
From Aunt Jane's Standpoint.
' s OU see I've got a sister, my oldest sister, Mary, who lives in
' Buffalo. She's a widow with one son, and if that boy
wanted the moon she'd climb a step-ladder and try to get it
f SN , .- for him. NVell, he took up the idea of studying medicine,
ff and study medicine he would and did. Between you and
me, that seems to be about all he can do, for I donit much
believe he will ever get beyond the studying point.
When fall comes it gets pretty lonesome upon the farm, ' specially this year since
Brother Josiah took it into his head to go and get married. So Mary wanted com-
pany, that boy of hers studying all day, you know, and I decided to go to Buffalo
and spend the winter with her. Gracious, if I'd known the amount of Christian
grace I'd need to run me through the winter, I would have stayed at home on the
farm and kept out of the way.
Mary was terribly interested in everything Jack said about college, and she told
me she was trying hard, to keep him interested in his work. I thought she was.
One day Jack came home and said the theatre party was coming off next week,
and we must go. Then he told about the great march down Main Street with a
brass band ahead and the boys all hollering and what a good time they had. And
said I, 'tDonlt they a.ll have awful eolds exposing themselves se?" "Now, Aunt
-I ane, those guys aroused to it," said Jack. UAnd does the college pay for it all?
How nice of them to give you such a good time!" Jack didn't answer me. He
looked kind of funny, but I thought maybe he was only a little more absent-minded
The next Sabbath when I got home from church, I found .I ack in the parlor at
the piano, with the room half full of young men-ttguys," .Iaek calls them, but
why I don't know, and just as I opened the door they were shouting out something
that sounded like our old dog when he was being whipped for robbing henls nests.
There was something like Ki-yi-Ki-yi-kin-and then you be forevermore, but what
you were to be wasnlt put in. Everyone of those boys had a thick woolen shirt on
with a collar up to his ears, and a big letter B on the front. I thought they weren't
setting a very good precept to other boys of their age, sitting around in their under
shirts-smoking great black pipes Cnet good healthy corncobs such as most people
usej and making sueh a fearful noise on a Sabbath morning. I remarked as much
to J ack next day, and he said, "IV hy, Aunt Jane, those shirts are sweaters and all
the fellows wear themf' I thought they must be good things for that purpose, but
they really should be ealled 'tPerspirators'7 it would sound so much better. VV ell,
they kept up that racket till after two o'clock, when one of them said he guessed
het d have to feed his face pretty soon, and they went home. I wondered what
that boy could mean, but I've learned not to ask Jack very many things
IVhen Jack came home Wednesday for dinner, he brought two tickets with him
-said they were for his mother and me., 'fMe!,' said I, "why I never was in a
play house in my life, its wicked! IV hat would happen to me if I were to start
such worldliness at my age! No. I cantt gof' But finally their talking and my
own curiosity got the better of my judgment and I said I'd go.
1 We ate dinner in a hurry Thursday night and dressed up in our best clothes,
because .I ack said he had got box seats. CI thought I hadn't better ask any more
questions, so I waited till I got there to find out what a Zwrv .seat wasj
The street car we were on passed a whole procession of boys, marching with
snow half way to their knees. There was a brass band ahead of them and they
were each trying to down the other, the brass band and the boys. They were
hollering t'Boom" and "Rah-rah-raht' and a lot of other things, but we passed
them so quickly that I couldnft understand very much. Most every fellow had a
cane, and a Hag and one of these big ragged looking posies they make so much fuss
When we got there, the Gpera House was most empty, except a few men with
long white shirt bosoms, and coats that hadntt any skirts except at the back, and
these only about two inches wide. One of these fellows took us around corners and
up and down stairs and left us in a little cubby-hole that Mary said was a box and
you had to pay extra to sit in them. People began to come in pretty soon, espec-
ially in the boxes, and I noticed two young men and two girls in the one just
opposite us. They seemed to know everybody and kept bowing first here and
there, and I wondered who they were.
Then the boys came in, one top of another, for all the world like bees when
they swarm. The fellows in the narrow tailed coats had an awful time keeping
them straight, but they finally got them settled. Just then a big tall fellow in the
front row saw the people in the box opposite, and began to yell, and all the fellows
around him hollered as if something awful had happened. They hadn't any more
than got through when another lot saw them, and they hollered more than the first
ones did, and then all of them stood up and hollered. Mary said they were asking
what was the matter with him-and saying he was "all right." Said I, "well,
what is the matter with him?' ' Mary didn't answer.
The Opera House was crammed full, and Mary explained that these were
"Medics,,' and those HLaws," and some more were "Pharmics'9 and the rest
"Dents.' 7 IVell, the ones she called t'Dents" were the noisiest and took up more
room than any of the others. They were right under us and I couldn't help watch-
ing them. IVhen the play began, they all quieted down and I was surprised to
see them behave so well. I couldn't understand much of the play, because I had
forgotten my specs and I couldn't read the fine print on the program. The play
did have an awful sounding name, though, "The Liars."
As soon as the curtain was down the band began to play, and the boys on the
right, that Mary said was the Law Department, jumped up and began to holler
and sing. Mary said they were singing their class song. Anyway, they needed a
good tuning fork to set them on the same key, and I know our choir leader down
home would have made them pronounce their words plainer. And I never knew
before that a man had to go to college to be a lawyer either., Before they were
through the men next to them were on their feet, hollering, but all I could under-
stand was 1900 Medico out of it all. Then they began to sing and they made worse
work of it than the others had till they got to the second verse, and then it began to
sound pretty good. When they got through they hollered some more and then
everybody got up and hollered. When the band began to play again, there was the
funniest little nigger boy got up on the stage and did some funny antics, till the
boys most went crazy. Mary said the Dents had the boy trained and he did that
every year. Anyway, he was the best part of the show to me.
All the big boxes downstairs were filled with men, oldish men most of them,
in long shirt bosoms and long tailed coats. While the boys were singing, every
once in awhile, one of them would laugh and blush C some of 7em blushed clear to
the back of their neeksj and clap like everything. Mary said the boys were roast-
ing them, that those were Prof's. "XVhy," said I, ffwhat are they roasting them
with? They wouldn't do such a thing!" Mary only laughed.
Well, the actors played another act that was just as mixed up as the first and
when the curtain went down the boys clapped and stamped and hollered till one of
the actors came out and I thought ffNow they'll catch it. Like not he's going
to have them arrested for making so much noise." But he didn, t, he talked awful
nice to them, and made believe they couldn't make too much noise to suit him.
Then another lot of boys, the Pharmies, got up and sang, pretty well, too, and oh,
how they did holler. I havenlt found out yet what a "Pharmic" is, but I suppose
I will. Soon as they were through the Dents sang, and they did sing, too. I
understood most all they said, they were right under us, you know, and when they
were through those in the back part of the room began to sing. Once there were
three squads up at the same time each trying to sing louder than the others. All of
a sudden I noticed how funny the people opposite us were acting. One of the fel-
lows got red, and jumped up and hollered same as the fellows downstairs. The fel-
lows sang something out loud and sharp and then ran out as fast as they could go.
Next I saw of them they were in that box, trying to pull the smaller fellow out with
them, and the other man in the box hanging onto his legs, till I thought sure they'd
tear his clothes off him or kill him. Oh, I was awful scared. By and by, he either
had to be pulled in two or go, and he went. They carried him dowstairs and made
him yell with them, and then he went back to the box. Gracious, he looked like
an escaped lunatic, his hair all at sixes and sevens, and his clothes half off. I was
awful sorry for him and the girl, too, for she seemed so shamed. I heard next day
that she was a medical student herself, so of course I wasted my sympathy. She
couldn't have any feelings or she wouldn't be a doctor.
After the next act, they yelled and yelled till I should think their lungs would
have burst. Some boys Mary said was Freshman Dents got up and sang, but it
was mostly hollering. The Pharmios were the noisiest, for they were on their feet
all the time, never a m.inute's rest. J ack says they' re got good lung power, because
they haven't anything to do all the year but exercise their lungs. They'd all holler
different things and then all holler the same thing, and I wondered if Beclllain could
have been much worse. I most tainted when the curtain went up and the noise
stopped all of a sudden.
' All this time I eouldn't find our Jack, though I looked all over. Next day
he said he was with his class Way back in the center, and wondered I didnlt hear
him holler. XV ell, then I asked why he didn? t come home with us, and he said
held been to the burying ground, resurreeting. Gracious why don't they leave that
IVe went home pretty quick after that, but the last thing We heard when we got
on a street car was-B-u-f-f-a-l-o. Wlhoop-la! IVhoop-la! Buffalo!! I don't
want to go to another theatre party-no-never!

OUR OTHER THEATRE PARTY.
A Bacteriological ragedy
GAY Bacillus, to gain him glory,
Once gave a ball in the laboratoryg
The fete took place on a cover glass,
Where vulgar germs could not harass.
None but the cultured were invited
CFor microbe cliques are well uuitedj,
And tightly closed the ballroom doors
To all the germs containing spores.
The Staphylocoeci first arrivedg
To stand in groups they all contrived.
The Streptococci tool: great pains
To seat themselves in graceful chains,
While somewhat late, and two by two,
The Diplococci came in view.
The Macrococci, stern and haughty,
Declared the Micrococci naughty,
And would not care to stay at all
If they were present at the ball.
The dance began, the mirth ran high,
With not one thought of danger nigh
Each germ enjoyed himself that night,

War-Club, to be fitted by a thong to a handle. Q Same looality.j At the bottom is
a skinning stone from Buffalo. The second object from the right in the top row,
is a stone gouge from Grand Island. The next is a pipe-bowl from Ft. Erie. It
is of sandstone and is intended to be used with a reed stem. At the left is a spear-
head from Lancaster. The middle obj ect at the left, is a beautifully carved panther-
pipe of impure gypsum. At the left and at the bottom, is a large, polished stone

Histor of The Athletic Association
H We, the students ofthe University of Buffalo, for the maintenance and advance-
ment of athletics in our Alma Mater do establish this Constitution."
F, Q. I HE above words tell completely and concisely the result of the well
directed efforts of a few of the more interested members of the
9 , .4 student body of the University of Buffalo.
Committees from each of the departments were invited to join
" J T together in one supreme eiort to form a permanent organization
which should hereafter govern the training of the college in all
branches of athletics. This was at the crisis of our existence in these branches.
The enthusiastic students met in joint session, and discussed the subject from
all points. The outlook was discouraging, for out of more than 7,00 students less
than twenty were present at any of the meetings, and no encouragement was forth
coming from any of the absent ones, but the untiring efforts of the commiwttees were
finally successful and a constitution was drawn up forming the present Athletic
This occurred in the spring of 1899 so that now in this issue of the TRIS we can
see the record of a very successful year under this new regime. Until the present
time the only athletics of any account in the University has been football, and for
the past four years we have met some of the best College and Athletic teams, and
to our credit, be it said, that in these four years we have lost just four games, one
game each year.
This Association at present consists of three departments of athletics: 1, Foot-
ballg 2, Hockey, 3, Track. Each of these departments being governed by a com-
mittee made up of a representative from each College Department, and a business
manager elected from this committee. An Advisory Committee, consisting of a
member of each faculty whose duty is to confer with the rest of the committees, is
also elected at the annual meeting. These committees together with the captains
of the teams form the Executive Committee of the Association.
The constitution provides that by the payment of one dollar a membership ticket
shall be issued, and this enables the holder to participate in all the business, and
renders the same eligible for election to any office of said Association.
How successful. Has been the outcome of this effort of the students canb e told
in a few words. The officers went to work at the football schedule and although it
was late to make arrangements with some of the most desirable teams yet one was
filled with some irst-class teams,
The management was fearful that the student body would not come to the
rescue, and ont his account many of the best games were not secured, but the
students when appealed to concerning the stringent needs of the team came to the
front and guaranteed to keep the team during the year.
After the first game, although not an entire failure, enough influence was
brought to bear to asure the hiring a coach, and from that time the team gradually
rounded into form until Thanksgiving day, when they were one of the best squads
on the gridiron and without an exception the best playing one ever seen on a grid-
iron in Buffalo.
Game after game was played and contrary to all prophecies, victory perched
upon our banner. Once only, during the season was it trampled in the dust and
then not without our scoring upon one of the best teams that ever chased a pigskin.
May this University continue to be represented by teams equally as good.
Football is not our only accomplishment, however, for we are represented by a
hockey tea.1n which has no superiors and few equals: They having carried off the
City Championship in this, the first year of their existence, besides which they have
beaten Cornell. -
Our track team, though still in the embryonic stage rapidly coming to the
front and in the meets during this winter they have proved themselves no mean
foes, and are making themselves apparent in the contents of the City Associations.
They have participated in two meets, and besides the single men winning points,
the relay team has been pitted against some of the best runners in the city. In the
first relay they finished just behind the first man, and in the last one, so far ahead
of the pursuing man that they could not have been reached by telephone. IV hat
is now needed is the unanimous support of the student body and the faculty to
make this Institution capable of competing with any university or college in the
country in any line of athletics.
In closing it will not be out of place to tell how the football team has found
support for the past two years, and place the praise and appreciation of our past
success upon its rightful owner. Dr. E. J. Myer, a.n alumnus with a true love for
his alma mater came into the field when our team was in its infancy, and
by encouragement, personally and financially made football here what it is today.
In acknowledgement of his assistance and efforts he has twice been elected honorary
president of this Association, which he so long endeavored to have the students
That this much needed reform has been a success no one can deny. It remains
now with the student body to see that there is no retrogression but a steady and
rapid progression. To accomplish this it will require the active co-operation of
every man in the University, not only in the contribution of money, but by the
evidence of unstinted enthusiasm. Then and not until then will the Athletic Associ-
ation of the University of Buffalo be, what it ought to be, a permallent and power-
