TAe wanderer over rural Berkshire sees, from afar, the figure of a gigantic horse, roughly carved from the turf of a hill-slope, and gleaming white with the whiteness of the exposed rock, and stops to muse over this lasting battle trophy of a well fought day. It is the White Horse King Arthur ' s royal emblem the device wrought upon his standard and blazoned on his shield, what time, upon that field of Ashdown, he first gave check to the conquering Dane; is the hill up which the young king cast a troubled eye over the far outnumbering Danish army, ere with purpose taken he said aloud to his questioning lords, " Dare I go up at them ? In God ' s name and St. Cuthberfs, yes ! " Since then the simple country folk have ever made an annual pil thither, to preserve from encroachment or obliteration, this record of their ancestors, that coming generations might remember and ponder over deeds worthy of emulation. Such is the ancient custom of " Scouring the White Horse. " Kind reader for you are kind to read we of this book have fought no battle, won no victory, reared no trophy. We are the simple country folk, whose turn it is to scour our White Horse; to keep fresh in the minds of our successors the memory of deeds done upon our college Ashdown, of fights fought long ago. And to the discharge of this, a time-honored duty, we go indifferent alike to applause for success, or to sneer sat a probable failure, but claiming, as is due, respect for the spirit which prompts us. Salve ! THE BLUE AND GOLD. THE EDITOR ' S FORETHOUGHT, ONDERFUL were the sights upon which the " ever wise " Ulysses gazed during his visit to the infernal regions, and many were the lessons he drew from these subterranean marvels. The punish- ments which the gods inflicted upon their enemies were disclosed to him, and he beheld the wretched victims racked by unceasing torments. But our hero did not view these wonders in simple curiosity; nor did he draw merely this conclusion from what he saw, that men should avoid offending the deities lest they be punished after death. That was a super- ficial deduction, and Ulysses looked far beyond it. He understood that the beings around him were acting as they had always acted, and that the punishment which they were undergoing was but an exaggerated or dis- torted likeness of each one ' s earthly pursuit. A prominent character in the place was the ghost of Sisyphus, the Over Wise, which " With many a weary step and many a groan " was employed in heaving a huge round stone up a high hill, a never- ending, still-beginning task, for the stone each time- turned before reaching the summit and fe ll back to the ground. Although Ulysses was prepared for punishments adapted to the characteristics of the individuals, yet he was startled at the peculiar fitness of this one, for Sisyphus had obtained his name from the habit, in his lifetime, of overdoing whatever he attempted to perform. Whatever he undertook was commenced with violence, and continued without intermission or recreation until exhaustion overcame him. With him there was no gradual development of a project ; he threw his whole strength into the first effort, and allowed himself no opportunity to be refreshed until worn out by his exertions he was obliged to abandon his half-finished work. And thus there were no successes in his life ; nothing was completed, because every thing was persistently overdone, and when at last the Over Wise reached the Stygian bounds he was by (he gods compelled to spend his time in casting a huge stone up a hill a cruel travesty of the victim ' s past performances, for the task was necessarily begun with the most violent exertions and was so managed as to be endless. As Ulysses turned away from the groaning shade he un- doubtedly commented on the similarity between the Sisyphian labor and the manner in which a number of his worthy toiling neighbors in Ithaca conducted their affairs, and must have come to the conclusion that there were still living many of the race of Sisyphus, to whom all their ancestors ' peculiarities had been transmitted. d UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. Nor is the race yet extinct. Indeed in this country it has flourished beyond reason, and now counts among its members representatives o( all classes and all occupations. It includes the business man who toils early and late until his constitution is gone and his body is a wreck ; it includes the broker who drives himself into a frenzy on the floor of the stock ex- change, and the merchant who goes mad over his counting-room desk. Sisyphus fills our legislative halls with oratorical flights and our statute books with bosh. As a judge he overrules all his predecessors and swells the reports with his verbose opinions. He is everywhere, and everywhere he is the same. Even at Berkeley we find him, and here he is the osten- tatious student, the dig, the man who, whatever his momentary employ- ment may be, at all times hugs under his arm some precious volume ; he who writes wordy articles, with high-sounding titles, for the Berkeleyan, in which he condemns the frivolity and levity of those around him. Their recreations are vanities to him ; their follies crimes. It was Sisyphus who penned, several years ago, a protest against the observance of traditional college customs, whose only reason for being, accordiug to him, is their antiquity. We are exhorted to rise to a higher plane of thought pre- sumably the one on which Sisyphus has taken his stand ; we are urged to abandon collegiate follies and, among other happy results, it will follow that " THE BLUE AND GOLD, unable to survive on the spare diet of stale jokes and selections from the Register, would be presently gathered to its fathers. " With even more harshness are some other cherished insti- tutions treated ; in fact whatever destroys the monotony of study is decried by this would-be reformer as unworthy the attention of rational beings. But we spurn his doctrines and denounce him as a false utilitarian. In spite of him we will continue as before to give up a portion of our time to our follies. He may be as virtuous as he pleases ; but for us, we will still eat our cakes, and drink our ale ; hot ginger shall still burn our mouths, and THE BLUE AND GOLD shall ever find in us a hearty patron. And we have authority for our conduct. The great men of all times have had their hours of relaxation, and have spent them not at sober tea- drinkings, nor yet in sedate conversation ; not they, but in noisy laughter and sportiveness. That our good faith in making this statement may be unquestioned, let facts be submitted to a candid world. No man of his time was more famous for his intellectual acquirements than Scott ; but neither was there any one jollier or more bent upon en- joying life. Many were the drinking bouts participated in by Scott, Clerk, and Erskine the three inseparables and frequent were the pranks they played upon friends and neighbors. Those were the days of giants; but no dwarf could be more frisky upon occasion than these gents, nor could a clown be merrier. Witness the great Jeffrey, who wrote articles for the Edinburgh Review which might compare favorably with the contributions of Sisyphus to the Berkeleyan, found in his garden playing leap-frog with two friends. And a man cannot vault over 1 _ THE BLUE AND GOLD. , xh another ' s back with a book under his arm crede m experto. Still another jolly trio was that comprised of Tom Taylor, Tom Hughes, and Canon Kingsley, who have reminded us, in one of their effusions, that they " Once a year like school boys Robin Hooding go, Leaving fops and fogies A thousand feet below. " A large group was that which gathered around the table at Ambrose ' s fifty years ago, and sent in regular accounts of its nightly proceedings to Blackwood ' s in the form of the immortal " Nodes Ambrosianae, " with many of whose pages any article in THE BLUE AND GOLD would com- pare favorably. The authors are described as meeting in a tap-room, eating and drinking an enormous quantity, conversing a little on current topics, drinking again in fact drinking all the time and finally reeling away home. And these men, not on account of these scenes at Ambrose ' s, nor yet in spite of them, were regarded as leading spirits in a great party half a century ago. If farther illustrations of our proposition are required, any biography will furnish them. Lives of great men all remind us that they enjoyed the follies of youth as much as any of us. For our individual encourage- ment it needs nothing more than the rollicking lines of Dr. Holmes ; their strong ring brings home to us in a free sense the joyousness of being one of " the boys, " and we unite one voice with his in singing " Then here ' s to our boyhood, its gold and its gray, The stars of its Winter, the dews of its May ! " We turn from the long faces of the Berkeleyan contributors to the jolly countenances of these mighty men, who have retained their fun-loving dispositions notwithstanding their gray hairs, and our mind is determined ; with the latter shall our lot be cast. But perhaps in these radical times the order of things has been reversed ; perhaps it is right that sages and philosophers should defy old age and be jolly good fellows, and that young men should assume the sedate deportment of Sisyphus. Is it the case elsewhere than in Berkeley ? If so, we will retract our resolution and defer fun and nonsense to our grand climacteric. We turn to the Eastern colleges and beg to be enlightened. It is no tale of quiet, hardworking students that the Cambridge or New Haven tradesman, searching for his missing sign, pours into our ears. We turn to Princeton and are in- formed that the Divinity students can and do whip all the rest of the college in a free fight. Dartmouth sends us, with its greetings, a full account of the last hazing scrape, which is only exceeded in brutality by the annual " nigger " affair at West Point. We are convinced that there is still life in the Eastern Universities, and cross the Atlantic to ascertain whether they have degenerated in the Old World institutions of learning. We fall in with Seward of Christ Church, and Buller of Brazennose x UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. honor men, both of them, and Buller sure to be a double first. We hear nothing from them of cruel hazing scrapes, but we are entertained with descriptions of cock-fights, town and gown rows, boating and wine parties, ad nauseam. In Spain we meet a number of itinerant collegians, with spoons in their hat-bands, enioying vacation in " their own peculiar way, " and in Russia have the pleasure of seeing a bust given by the students in the Winter Palace. Ah! what merry dogs are the Russian students ! An absurd spectacle is that which we are invited to witness in Heidelberg, the reception accorded to Freshmen, or, Nasty Foxes, as they are called. The ceremonies are ridiculous, burnt cork and beer play- ing a prominent part in them ; and are none the less laughable on account of the greeting song, some stanzas of which have reached thi s country. " And smokes the fox tobacco? And smokes the fox tobacco? And smokes the leathery fox tobacco ! Sa! Sa! Fox tobacco? And smokes the fox tobacco? " Then let him fill a pipe ! Then let him fill a pipe ! Then let him fill a leathery pipe ! Sa ! Sa ! Leathery pipe ! Then let him fill a pipe ! " And now we return from our flying trip, convinced that human nature is the same the world over. Inspired by this novel and sage conclusion, we snap our fingers in the face of our glum looking monitor ; we take pleasure in throwing off restraint at times and performing deeds that will live in the pages of this book. And from this book itself we derive grati- fication, for it is a history of four years of our life of the life of every student. The Freshman is pictured as he draws toward the end of a well- spent year a year of good resolutions and low marks. The vacation passes quickly spent at home in the bosom of his family and he returns to find himself a student-at-large. However, explanations are soon in- vented and given, and, if the fellow is clever, four or five conditions are easily disposed of, and the whilom Freshman becomes a Sophomore. Over this period of his life we must draw a veil, and remove it only when he blazes forth into a Junior, full of conquests and conceit. What verses pass between young jackanapes and a lady who describes herself as " A creature fair With shadowy hair, And a nymph with languid eyes. " But these trifles are forgotten when a silk hat presses the Senior ' s brows, and his money has been forwarded to the Thesis Agency in Chicago. Everything is forgotten then but the glory of being. To this period have we come, and here let us rest, content to trust the future to itself. ? 1 1 THE BLUE AND GOLD. A One word may be necessary as to the changed auspices under which this publication appears. Recent events have so disturbed University affairs as to render it impossible for the Class of ' 81 to follow the example of former Junior classes in publishing THE BLUE AND GOLD, and under these circumstances the Iota Chapter of the Zeta Psi Fraternity has assumed the task. There is, of course, some uncertainty among the lota ' s members as to the reception with which their performance will meet ; but they are animated by the best intentions towards all members and all de- partments of the University, and beg at least a recognition of this good feeling. But however uncertain they may have been in regard to the re- ception awaiting their work, there has been no faltering in its prosecution, but steadily pressing on towards its completion, they have ever borne in mind that " He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That puts it not unto the touch, To win or lose it all.

[Shakespeare, adapted. ] 20 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. VERY fourth year the people of our country eagerly await the decision of a gieat political contest, the Presidential election. While widespread attention was directed to this important strug- gle, the members of a new class quietly flocked to Berkeley. For four years ' 80 has enjoyed the efficient instruction afforded by our Uni- versity, and now we will soon depart, each upon his separate path, as citizens, ready, let us trust, to repay to our State the debt we owe her. But let us abandon, for the present, all thoughts of the serious future, and linger, for a few sweet moments, over the records of the past. We all can vividly recall our first impression of Berkeley, of her College Halls standing like twin citadels as strongholds of learning. How easily called to mind are the terrors of matriculation, and how, after running the gauntlet of examinations, we attempted to count noses. But alas, being innocent of further evil, we unwittingly counted in a number of jolly Sophomores, who kindly insisted upon organizing our union for us " just for the fun of the thing. " . From that date the war began. In the first place to our dismay ' 79 greatly outnumbered us ; and though it was no honor to prevail by mere force of numbers, ' 79 did attempt to lord it over THE BLUE AND GOLD. us with a high hand. The effect of this, however, was rather to our advantage, for, while it imbued us with a spirit of honor and loyalty to our class, it inculcated within us a proper appreciation of our station. Among the fair-minded members of ' 79 we early found friends; and the courage and force displayed by ' 80 at the Berkeley farm-house rush in- spired the evil-minded of ' 79 with a proper regard for the rights of Fresh- men. Stimulated by the victorious result of this rush, we entered with hope and courage into the field of athletic sports. The first test of skill and agility between ' 79 and ' 80, was afforded by the one great football match of the season. This game conclusively proved the superior advantage of systematic management, as, by maintaining a thorough control over the team, our captain outwitted the brute force of ' 79. Then the schoolboys of Oak- land and San Francisco were easily vanquished in a single game, leaving ' 80 with no one to " kick against " in the immediate vicinity of Berkeley. Base-ball, indeed, was not so happily tossed. The first game with ' 79 re- sulted in a tie; but alas, in the second trial ' 80 scored a defeat. But despite all the discouragements heaped upon us, we earned the champion- ship in our Junior year. In fact in that year, although as Sophomores ' 80 was denied a representation in the University nine, the merits of her players secuied to her the control of that nine greatly to the disgust of tht Seniors. Never since that time has ' 80 met with a defeat in the diamond field. To pass by the exploits of our Sophomore year would be the height of impropriety. With what tender solicitude did we strive to assist, and only when the helping hand of authority waived us back did we permit the Freshies to form their class union. The establishment of the famous Epsilon Gamma Sigma was the out- come of one of the most famous, original and side-splitting practical jokes ever conceived. The magic sign, so successfully practiced by the one great proselyte of that society from ' 81, has rendered him famous in all quarters of the globe. In fact he has departed to other lands to spread the great cause; and let us hope with the aid of this wonderful spell that he will engrave " new marks " upon the well-worn features of the Old World. The indolence of Junior ease at last lay hold of ' 80 with all its charms and dreams. The utility of propping up the flagging energies of lazy Juniors was early anticipated, and therefore we revived the old custom of carrying class canes. These beautiful ornaments, of polished iron woods, are looked upon as too rare and costly for vulgar everyday display, so they are universally consigned to the darkness of the closet. Our tasteful base- ball suits are another proof of our enterprise and p0)gress. The zeal and taste displayed in the management of our Junior Ex. merits special applause ; and the floral display, thanks to the young ladies, was 22 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA " N especially admired. But a cloud cast a gloom over the scene which we fain would forget. And now let us not pause at Senior dignity, but let us bear the burden thrust upon us with becoming ease. Indeed, from the lack of college spirit, we have borne a double duty. The gymnasium, the Debating Societies, in fact all laudable institutions intrusted to our protection, have suffered from the social indifference that has seized upon the students. We can, however, look back with pleasure upon one feature of our Senior year our Glee Club meetings. Although they have demonstrated conclusively that ' 80 is not a class of vocal prodigies, they have impressed upon all candid members that the young ladies of ' 80, by their thought- fulness and hospitality, have proved their steadfast devotion to the class. And now, as we are soon to equip for the sober tasks of maturer man- hood, for which Berkeley has prepared us, let us then, in the future as in the past, in all the trials that press upon us, live up to our motto, and ever be " willing and able.

It has witnessed, in Russia, the sudden and dangerous growth of Nihilistic principles ; in Germany the no less menacing outcrop of Socialism, and in our own neighborhood the lapid development of blatant Kearnyism. It has seen the murder of Prince Napoleon, the attempted assassination of the Czar of Russia, and the almost utter annihilation of the Class of ' 81. With the less important of these events we are not here concerned; our wish is only to briefly chron- icle the career of the Class of ' 81. Three years ago the Class of ' 81 entered the University, one less than a hundred Freshmen strong. All were well prepared for student life, and some were prepared for student life. We were greeted with indifference by ' 78, heartily welcomed by ' 79, and regarded by ' 80 with a certain mix- ture of fear, envy and fiendish delight. As Freshmen our behavior was good, except when an occasional cane, or rudimentary mustache, attracted the obnoxious attentions of the Sophomores. Like other Freshmen, we THE BLUE AND GOLD. 27 were compelled to buckle down to hard work ; but in spite of our most persistent efforts many of our brightest glims were doused by the cruel English examinations, and many more were put out by Bourdon. We buried Bourdon, and with it the life of the University. Since that time our college customs have been almost totally neglected. Where now are assemblies, our parties, our base-ball nines, our busts, and other college institutions involving the general interest of the University? They are either things of the past or are of so little importance that we might well do away with them. We buried Bourdon, acquitted ourselves creditably, and now only regret that our class should have been the last to show becoming respect to the worthy dead. Scarcely had we disposed of Bourdon, when we were subjected to another refining process by the Faculty, after which fifty-four of us found ourselves Sophomores. In this capacity we got on bravely, till the shoot- ing of one of our members by a crazy Dwight Way Bushwhacker, caused such a scandal through the papers that we thought it better to reserve all our energies for ' 8o ' s Junior Ex. Here we more than kept up our reputa- tion. Knowing ' 8o ' s inability to entertain an audience, we determined to assist in relieving the monotony of the occasion. This we did by the pub- lication of the Stinger, in which paper, after the manner of our modern journals, appeared the speeches which were to be delivered on that day carefully revised and corrected. Our bogus was so prominent a feature of the day that it invoked the wrath of the Faculty upon our devoted heads. Expulsion for some was imminent. We bound ourselves together deter- mined to suffer as a class all tha consequences of our unappreciated efforts. A few days of horrible suspense followed. Class unions were frequent, forebodings rife, and Juniors were hourly summoned from the examination table to the Faculty inquisition by the all-powerful fore-finger of our worthy Recorder. Finally, as the authors of the Stinger could not be dis- covered, and as we had evinced a desire to be treated in all respects as a Class, the Faculty determined to subject us to indefinite suspension. So ended our Sophomore year. Not yet Juniors, and no longer Sopho- mores, we spent in vain the first part of the succeeding term in trying to convince the Faculty of their mistake, but even Scotch eloquence failed to achieve anything for us. When many of us had come to the conclusion that our college days were at an end, the conditions for our re-entering the University were so modified that we could subscribe to them with a good conscience. Sou e had so wedded themselves to business during our vacation, that they could not leave it for their Alma Mater, but twenty of us returned and once more enjoyed full college privileges From our first organization we have been a union in the strictest sense. Factions never existed, and our class politics have been of the simplest nature, our officers having been almost always elected by acclamation. And now, although we no longer have any class organization in name, we are united by a still stronger bond that of sympathy. A Junior base- -JL-4 || 28 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. A IPs ball nine does not exist, but if a University nine were chosen, ' 81 would send its share of representatives. A Junior glee club does not exist, but still we have voices and use them. In atheletic sports, ' 81 has carried off more than its share of honors. On last field day, of the fifteen contests, members ot our class took part in thirteen and were victorious in eight of them, making the best records. The hurdle race and running high jump are particularly noticeable for being the best records of the State. The one hundred yard dash was at that time the fastest amateur time in the State, and was made in a tie heat by two members of our class. The spirit of ' 81 is still with us. It is with the absent ones, and when time shall separate us there shall still exist that same fellow feeling as strong as when there was " One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.

THE BLUE AND GOLD. 31 ALF of our college course is already a thing of the past, and for the second time ' 82 is called upon to submit its history to the world. The question which must now be answered is : What has been achieved in these two years, and what are the probable effects of these achievements on the future ? To this, as class historian, I shall attempt to give a faithful answer. The fruits of our labor in the class-room are, of course, yet among the visions of the " sweet by and by; " but with the fruits of our political work we have already been blessed. The greatest achievements of ' 82 are the reforms which she rought in Berkeley college life. Before we came to Berkeley ' s Halls, Bacchanalian festivities were in full blast, and hazing was considered innocent sport. But under the benign influence of ' 82, " busts " have become a tradition, and hazing scrapes a mere name. Still more, however, has our indefatigable spirit of reform shown itself in another garb. Contrary to the customs of all previous Sophomore classes, we have treated the Freshies with almost angelic tenderness. In fact, such has been our desire for their welfare that we have caused them to be pledged never to indulge in hazing while connected with the University. This will be highly instrumental in keeping them out of mischief- Glory in the athletic arena ' 82 has come to regard as an unworthy of contention. Whenever the athletic committee calls us into the field 32 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. A go, not to win glory, but because we never shirk duty. This indifference, however, is clearly not owing to a lack of ability. Whenever we thought the occasion worthy of our best efforts, we came out victorious. As Freshmen, we defeated ' 8 1 in the time-honored rush ; and also, to lift us from the dust, in a series of base-ball and foot-ball games. When we assumed the dignity of a Sophomore, we answered to the call of duty and gave the verdant Freshies a rush long to be remembered. Thus ' 82 places among her archives the records of two victorious rushes. Our great spirit of reform prompted us also to refrain from burying Bourdon, as this occasion would undoubtedly raise Bacchus to the throne. But, nevertheless, ' 8350 completely vanquished Bourdon in the class-room, that for sepulture nothing seemed remaining. In military, ' 82 has always made its mark. We have just passed our examination in tactics, and every one hopes to be a captain at least a corpoial. ' 82 is alive to its interests. In the class-room it has no equal ; and in the literary societies of the University it takes an active part. The scientific section of our class is an excellent one, and in the College of Letters there are a number of brilliant lights. The class also maintains a German-speaking club the only one at the University. Through various reverses our line has been thinned from loi to 45, yet valiantly we stand, proud of the past, and looking with hopeful expecta- tion to the future. REINHARDT T.

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. sHILE hand in hand we ambitiously ascend the 1 steep incline of intellectual progress, we, of the Class of ' 83, look back upon the day when we entered this higher field of intellectual culture. We needed advice from no one. With self-confidence we bravely fought the necessary Freshman battles. We were participants in the grandest rush that ever graced our campus. A few days afterwards, remembering our physical ability, the Sophomores allowed their own foot-ball to be carried off by one of our small members. We openly gave notice of our first Class Union. But we met shortly before the specified time, thus frustrating the Sophomorical plan of disturbing the meeting. And while we were pleased that success met us so often in outside affairs, still with greater pleasure we endeavoured to succeed in the brain work placed before us. Part of the Class of ' 83 was called upon to pass a more rigid examination for entrance than was required of any preceding class. And the members on whom the demand was made profited by the required knowledge, and are now about to put aside a book which taxed the attention of pre- decessors only in the Sophomore year. And since we are now experienced in this our field of labor, with our ability and earnest motives, we shall more rapidly advance to a higher standard of intellectual attainment. In social affairs we have made many changes, and shall neglect that well known celebration in which the cup is used so freely. We were the first to break asunder the iron fetters which heretofore X THE BLUE AND GOLD. 37 bound the classes in ill-feeling. When some over-daring Sophomores were suspended for hazing Freshmen, we willingly signed a petition to have these, our former enemies, reinstated. And then we agreed that the barbarous custom of hazing had been, at this time, laid in its last resting place, and that it should never be unshrouded by the Class of ' 83. From this time forth the admiration and respect of the other classes towards us were increased. Knowing that our duty in upholding the true student ' s life is necessarily small, we hope it has been- accomplished. And as we take the reins of power of- the other classes, we shall endeavor to banish the complaint that college affairs are dull. While reflecting upon the annals of athletic sports, we are reminded of our easily won victory over the Sophomores in the game of base-ball. We were then called upon to contest for the championship with the Seniors. But, while in the most exciting part of this match, much to the sorrow of ' 83, the catchers of the nines received injuries that made the game result in a draw. Among the ten whose good shots at the last target practice enabled them to form the rifle team, five of ' 83 are enlisted, and four of these hold the highest scores. ' 83 has drawn aside the dark curtain which has long hidden the true sociability of fellow class-mates. At the regular fortnightly meetings of the Glee Club, the young ladies aid with sweet harmony in singing the old college songs. Then, when the midnight light has giown dim, wearied by the joyful dance and merry- making, still with light hearts, we part, forgetting the troubles and trials of the preceding weeks. At these gatherings can undoubtedly be found better talent at instrumental music than has been possessed by any other class. Slill we are pleased that the time is so near when we must bid farewell to Freshman days. And, benefited by past experience, we are prepared to meet the duties before us.

ANNALS OF THE IOTA CHAPTER. 187O-SO. history of the Zeta Psi fraternity in general has been so ably and fully related elsewhere, that but a brief reference to it is needed in this connection. The parent chapter, the Phi of the University of New York, was established in 1847, and it is largely due to the high character and active nature of the founders that the fraternity extended so rapidly to other institutions of learning up to the period of the civil war. Since this date new chapters have been permitted to be formed only in colleges where they could maintain themselves in a flourishing condition, for it is wisely judged that the objects of the order can be successfully attained rather by the select and vigorous few than by the mediocre and feeble many. Although during the history of the fraternity several chapters have been discontinued, its vitality is perspicuously seen at Princeton, where an unceasing battle has been waged for twenty-three years against the Omicron, whose mortuary hymn is not yet penned. The members of the order now number fully three thousand. Metro- politan chapters exist in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Chicago, Troy, and Cincinnati. We do not propose to discuss the rights of secret societies to exist in American colleges. We grant willingly that if an association of students, open or secret, seriously interferes with the administration and progressive policy of a college, and hinder its advancement, the society forfeits its rights ; it should die the death. Late one Sunday night during the summer of 1870, in a room of New- land ' s Hotel, Oakland, there was ushered into existence the first college secret society of this coast. On this portentous occasion, Brother Arthur B. Waring, of the parent Phi chapter, ably represented the skillful accoucheur, while Brothers C. Brown, of Beloit College, and Everett B. Pomroy, of the University of California, stood in parental relations to the precocious bantling, with the brothers Whitworth as efficient coadjutors. The College had just been merged into the University, and hardly one of the traditions and customs of Eastern institutions (except beer drinking) THE BLUE AND GOLD. sT had gained a foot-hold in Oakland. There occurred but few opportunities in which the social instincts of the college men could find means of drawing them into closer bonds of friendship, while with increasing numbers of students the formation of little coteries was already begun. It was the aim, therefore, of the new association to gather a company of manly, sym- pathetic students, whose union would tend directly to the promotion of zeal in study, the formation of warm and lifelong friendships, and whose combined influence should be exerted in the College ever in the direction of progress. Accordingly, at the close of the first decade of the lota ' s history, with pleasure we observe that the chapter has ever been pre- eminent in all the social, gentlemanly virtues, and has ever insisted on scholastic ability as one of the criteria of successful membership. For some months after organization little progress was made. But though members were added slowly, they were of the right quality, and at length their quickening power was felt. The Zetes rallied under the roof of -the Durant Rhetorical Society, which sprang into new life, and its vigorous career during the next three years was due to their hearty support. They originated the " University Echo, " whoe dulcet tones set the key for successive organs. They organized the University Dramatic Society, which appeared in public several times with eclat. The sturdy bone and muscle of Lynch, Perkins, Parker, et al, materialized that myth of the present the University Boat Club. In the summer vacation of 1871, Brother Carlton, one of the choice spirits and noble hearts of the Phi, visited the Iota, like to an evangel, bringing with him an atmosphere of quiet enthusiasm and brotherly love. The real start, however, was hardly made until 1872, when the active men of ' 73, ' 74 and ' 75 were added. In the spring of 1873 was held the second annual banquet, at which the greatest enthusiasm prevailed, and it seemed that the brothers enjoyed the first opportunity to perceive the beneficent possibilities of association. The occasion called forth real fraternal affection, to be only strengthened by the arts of opposition of the near future. The first Grand Annual was held ir. July, 1873, and consisted of public exercises in Brayton Hall, attended by a large assembly, who with applause testified their appreciation of the poem by E. B. Pomroy, and the address on self-culture by the Rev. Dr. W. A. Scott. At the close of these exercises, the members of the chapter, with their lady friends, held a select ball. Envious spirits had whispered that the Zetes " ran " the Durants, and at the fall election in 1873 was developed a well-laid plot to destroy their power a power founded on excellence of character and talent, rather than the arts ol chicanery now used by their opponents. The exceedingly bitter attacks were repelled ; they united the brothers into a firmer union. This il 4_ _. 50 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. A was the first time that the chapter, as a society, engaged in college politics, compelled to it by the spiteful opposition of a combination of men on which was based the second secret society of the University. The presence and antagonism of this new society (it hardly could be called a rival, and it maintained a lingering existence for only a few years) stimulated the Iota to preserve the lead in all college affairs, until in 1875 the Zetes determined to enter no more as a society upon the arena of college politics. They were led to this decision, however, not by any ill- success attending former efforts in this direction, but by a desire to dis- courage the dissensions of students and to foster a more unanimous University spirit among them. 1873 In the fall of 1873 the University removed, and as the club- house system came into vogue, the Chapter resolved to secure a hall and a home for its members. The " Berkeley Farm House " was engaged and occupied for several months. Here for the first time Ihe brothers were happily domesticated under one roof, and so conducive to every interest of the society the system ' proved, that it has been maintained successfully ever since. How many enjoyable events took place there ! Prominent among them was the dinner given to Brother Ainsworth for so ably representing us in the Grand Chapter of 1873, and the reception tendered to Prince Heromich Shugheo, of the Phi, on his return to Japan. Even the daily meals were symposia of wit and pleasantry. The musical proclivities of the Zetes were fostered according to their merit, and, indeed, the musical ability of one brother was so marked as to secure him the distinguished position of leader to the University Horn Brigade, whose melodious strains resounded even under the ivy-mantled walls of Mills ' Seminary. 1874. In January the Chapter procured the commodious Humboldt Hotel, at Temescal, with its adjoining beautiful grounds, and for six months was domiciled there. From this time the literary mission of the society was more carefully attended to. Previously, the brothers had zealously supported the Durant Rhetorical Society, which was nuw on the decline, owing to the scattered situation of students, and the difficulty of getting a suitable room for its sessions. The new location of the Chapter in a large degree prevented the attendance of its members at Berkeley meetings, and consequently its own literary exercises became very interesting, and the benefits derived were illustrated by the success of such as participated in the college prize debates and oratqrical contests of 1874 and 1875. In the intervals of steady application, many delightful social events took place, and the various expeditions, yacht rides, and the receptions to Brothers Lawtonand Walbridge, will be long and pleasantly remembered The complete success of .the Grand Annual of 1873 led to the holding of _ _ ; = THE BLUE AND GOLD. another this year, also. Professor Joseph LeConte kindly favored a large audience with an oration on the relations of the University to education on the Pacific coast, while the Hon. Charles A. Sumner read a poem. The customary hop took place in Library Hall. After the summer vacation, negotiations for the purchase of Humboldt Hotel having failed, the Chapter migrated to Berkeley again, occupying the large cottage on Dwight Way, which was furnished very elegantly. During our eighteen months ' residence here many felicitous, sociables were held, which the fair elite of Berkeley and Oakland honored with their presence. Brothers Perkins and Carneal were our representatives at the Grand Chapter this year. 1875. The annual banquet in February was the first important event of the year, and on this festive occasion the brothers of other chapters resident on the coast for the first time were brought together in any number. Reunions have been held regularly ever since 1872 ; they have uniformly been successful in the highest degree, nor can we remember any offence given the principles of a manly self-respect or infringements on the laws of morality. The inevitable effect has been to brighten dim recollections of college days, to revive the slumbering enthusiasm of alumni in society and in alma mater, while the active members are aroused to emulate and excel the past. About this time students renewed their activity in athletic sports, and the national game was assiduously practised. The Zeta Psis formed a nine, which, for lack of challenges, never essayed its skill, except in 1877, when it was victorious. From the ancient days of the " Wide- Awakes, " down to the present, the members of the Iota have been prominent in athletics, and even in these times of degeneracy, when college spirit is at a low ebb and the campus well-nigh deserted, the Zetes captured seven out of fifteen prizes at the Field Day of 1879. Besides the customary party in May, pleasant incidents were the visit to the City of Peking, by invitation of Brother John King Hall, and the presentation of a handsome piece of plate to Brother Ainsworth, recently married, as a slight token of our appreiation of his varied services to the Chapter. Brothers John M. Whitworth, Carneal and Perkins were delegates to the Grand Chapter. 1876. In this year occurred the first case of discipline. The Chapter always has exercised a supervision over its members, and friendly criti- cism from a brother, or the warning voice of the superior officer has more than once recalled a wanderer from his error, and stimulated contented sloth to fresh diligence in study. From the time the Chapter entered on its club system, attention had been drawn to the advantages to arise from the society ' s building and 52 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. A lU owning its own residence. The hope of ' 74 and the effort of ' 75 were now to be realized, for " the hour and the man " were at hand. During the summer vacation the present commodious and elegant hall was erected, and with impressive ceremonies was dedicated in September to the use of Zeta Psi. Upon this joyful occasion a very large number of elders was present, and the house warming was noted a complete success. In this matter the Chapter lies under heavy obligations to Brothers Hinton, Dargie and Var Dyke. 1877. The third Grand Annual was held in May, before a large and appreciative audience. The public exercises consisted of a spirited poem by Daniel O ' Connell, entitled " General Pope at Lost Mountain, " follow- ed by a masterly address by William C. Bartlett, on the " Hour and its Opportunities. " This year the Chapter was called to mourn the death of one of its most promising members, Brother Herman Dwinelle, whose generous sympa- thies and noble qualities of heart endeared him to the memories of all his associates. A careful examination of the minutes of the Chapter, shows that the literary work, never lacking in interest and mental profit, onward from this period was conducted with singular partiality and regularity. The regulation of internal affairs and ceremonials became perfected. generous spirit always characteristic of the Iota, led the members to keep open house on Junior, Class and Commencement days of the year, and though the custom has drawn somewhat heavily on the purse, it has been continued ever since. On such occasions Berkeley is full of friends of the University, and although the authorities provide for their intellectual entertainment, yet other not less important hospitalities are neglected, and the efforts made by private individuals and societies to meet this want can- not be too highly commended. 1878. This year is memorable in the annals of the secret societes at Berkeley, on account of the beginning of a regularly organized opposition, which partly arose from the " sore-headedness " of certain individuals, who had been refused admittance to the societies, and in part was based on the conscientious opinion of others that such societies are an evil. This an- tagonism culminated in the establishment of a college paper the " CEstrus, " the organ of this class of students, and the attempted forma- tion of a secret anti-secret society ! The class dissensions and personal animosities that now disturbed the social equilibrium of the student body, especially notorious in the class of ' 79, were directly caused by the operations of the anti-society men. Bit- ter slanders, possibly true as regards some one set of fraternity men, were applied to others. An incredibly vulgar production the third edition of the " Scylla, " appeared, and its authorship was attributed to the societies. THE BLUE AND GOLD. 53%s The fact that the members of the Iota Chapter engaged a detective to ferret out the authors, conclusively proves that the accusation could not have touched them. It is quite refreshing to remark that throughout these troublesome times until the crisis came in 1879, the Zetes not once condescended to reply in print to the attacks of their adversaries. In 1878 was begun the formation of a library at the Hall, which now numbers three hundred volumes. 1879. The Chapter pursued the even tenor of its way until June, 1879, when on the day before Commencement, the brothers were astonished by an unofficial communication from the President of the University, to the effect that during the ensuing vacation plans probably would be entered upon by the Regents, for the abolition of secret societies at Berkeley. Measures were at once taken to investigate the subject, and endeavor to prevent such action lo no purpose, for on August 7th, the Regents pass- ed a resolution authorizing the Faculty to take such steps to the proposed end as they thought proper. This resolution was passed without debate just at the close, (after the. adjournment, some say) of the meeting. Immediately upon the opening of the term, the Faculty, after having through a special committee considered the subject, without much delay passed a decree to pledge all entering freshmen not to join any college secret society during their connection with the University. ' Thus by cut- ing off the supply of new members, they designed to suppress the so- cieties quietly and gradually. It is well to note in this connection that individual members of the Fac- ulty, openly testified that no charges were preferred against the Zeta Psi fraternity, but that the Faculty ' s action was made mandatory by the Regents. Shortly after a general council of all the Zeta Psis on the coast was held at San Francisco, at which it was resolved to contest the action of the authorities in every honorable way. Previously it hadbeen agreed, however, that as the Chapter had always pursued an honorable, upright line of con- duct, it would be our magnanimous duty to terminate the career of the society, (should the decision of the Regents and Faculty be legal and irre- vocable.) Subsequently the University Alumni Association met in Oakland, and condemned the action of the authorities as being inimical to the best interests of the University. Several leading newspapers of the State took a simi- lar view of the case. A petition requesting the Regents to reconsider their decision was signed by many prominent citizens. Finally the matter was brought before the Board on February lo, 1880, when they rescinded their resolution of August, 1879, only two members voting the contrary. The Faculty likewise abrogated their decree. The " CEstrus " stopped publication. 54 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. Such is the merest outline of events occurring between June, 1879, and February, 1880. As this narrative is but a prosaic history, and not a defense, of the Zeta Psis, we deem it proper not to offer any criticism on the action of the authorities or the motives leading thereto. The fraternity lies under obligations to Brothers Rodgers, Carneal, Dargie, Sumner, Whitworth, Hinton, Van Dyke and others, for their earnest efforts in its behalf during this period of anxiety and suspense. If there be any manliness in the other secret societies at Berkeley, on their part some feelings of gratitude are due the Iota Chapter for having, almost unaided, fought their fight and pulled them out of the mire ; and it is hoped that in the future only a generous rivalry will animate them in their dealings with our fraternity. The Chapter has had a vigorous existence. Its ranks have been full ; its morale high. Unanimity has characterized its proceedings. Firm bonds of friendship and brotherly love have united its members. It has never interfered with the administration of the University ; its whole in- fluence has been wielded for the advancement of the institution. With few exceptions, that but prove the rule, it has pursued a laissezfaire policy in college politics. Nor are all its virtues negative. Such being her traditions, let the Iota cling to them. Let wisdom counsel, prudence direct, courage execute : then shall eminent success be excellently gained. THE BLUE AND GOLD. 55 ROLL OF CHAPTERS. PHI University of the City of New York.

THE BLUE AND GOLD. 67 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. THE BLUE AND GOLD. ' UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA ;HE Neolaean Literary Society commenced life with eight charter members in the year 1871. Since then its life has been marked by those cycles of alternate activity and depression which make up the existence of far more pretentious human institutions. It has clung to existence so tenaciously that now it seems to be rooted in the traditions of the University, and can claim a past that is beginning to be surrounded by some unfamiliarity and mystery. Its musty records have yet to be searched for reminiscences of some of its earliest sons, at length illustrious from achievements in science or statesmanship ; but now and then rumours reach it that the training in its halls is beginning: to tell. In the beginning of the present college year, that stagnation which seemed to settle upon student life appeared to have affected the society ; but it wisely effected a coalition with its associate, the DURANTS, and since the two have worked in perfect harmony, and have developed an activity and interest strangely contrasting with the languishing state of the college periodicals and other student institutions. It may be said with truth that in the -attendance and in the excellence of the exercises, no period in the history of the societies surpasses the present. Prior to the present term, the two societies have held each term an inter-s ciety debate. This last term, however, they have improved upon the former custom. They believe that one secret of the lack of student life and enthusiasm is the cessation of those assembly lectures, which seemed to bring in weekly from the world impulses of activity, glimpses of promi- nent men, and struggling social opinions, serving as a stimulus to students as yet only preparing for action. Therefore have they attempted THE BLUE AND GOLD. 7l to supply the want in part, by means of public debates, held monthly in the assembly hall. The undertaking is still new, and surrounded with difficulties that time only can wear away. Among tho questions already disposed of has been that of the third term controversy and adversely to the aspiring ex-president. One other step in the direction of advance has been successfully taken during the yeai% and by a silent process a new principle has been introduced into the unwritten constitution of the society. Young ladies have been admitted to membership, and have proven a source of strength instead, as heretofore apprehended, of weak- ness. They have in general withheld from the uncongenial field of rough, argumentative contention, and found in the society papers a sphere where a subtler influence could be exerted and a more delicate wit and more refined thought could find play. The experience of the society is a fore- shadowing o that great question of suffrage of to-day, pointing out by analogy the position in politics woman will occupy. The Durants have lately followed the example of the Neolseans in this respect, and her sister society hopes none may ever say it will have contributed to a future disso- lution and reconstruction, as some have asserted it did in the past. The Neolaean Literary Society feels that it has done its work well, and has earned a place in the University and a hold upon the affections and respect of students and alumni. It looks forward to a time in the future when it will be venerable with age and usefulness, hoping to have given the turn to many characters and silently started the impulses that will have generated many social and political revolutions. 72 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA.

Xx 01 -P HE Literary Societies in the educational life of the University, are factors which should be more and more recognized as the years go on. In the absence of a regular Chair of Elocution and Ora- tory, they are the sole practical supplements of the Department of English. That many, recognizing this fact, have become members of these organiza- tions is matter for congratulation ; ihat more have not done so is cause for regret. During the present year we have labored under many disadvan- tages, owing partly to the fact of a diminution in the number of students, and hence a proportional decrease in the membership of the Societies, and partly to the lack of facilities in the matter of obtaining suitable rooms in which to hold separate sittings, the Neolasans and Durants have deemed it advisable to hold joint meetings. These have been successful to a remark- able degree, yet it is to be hoped that by next year at least, better facilities and an increased membership will justify separate sessions. Under present circumstances no fault is to be found with the present system of holding exercises in common, but as in a work of this kind it is necessary to broad- en the field of action as much as possible, and as with this end in view two opportunies of taking part in the programme of exercises are better than one, it is earnestly to be hoped that both Faculty and Students will labor yg ' y 74 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. to bring about this result. The former can be of assistance in clearing away all obstacles to the development of the Societies, by helping to se- cure more suitable halls, and by encouraging students to see the advantages offered them ; they can also aid by occasionally appearing at the meetings and offering words of advice and encouragement. The latter by a zealous membership can be of untold benefit both to themselves and to the organ- izations. Notwithstanding the difficulties which are present, there is much reason to hope for the future. The present members are active and sincere, and the addition of the names of the young ladies to the list is valuable in many ways. It is hoped that the example thus set will be followed by many more of this desirable element. It is needless to give a separate history of the Durants. The society, founded in 1861, is the oldest in the University. It went through many vicissitudes, till last year it was determined to reorganize it. Accordingly the old Durant Society was dissolved, and the new one, with a remodeled constitution, and with only the active workers of the old one, began its existence. Since then it has been pre-eminently successful, and to make it all that is desirable requires only an additional membership as earnest as the present one. Therefore, if each student, whether lady or gentleman, will enter its ranks, he will, while aiding himself, thereby be pushing onward the chariot of education. THE BLUE AND GOLD. FFICKMS, S. A.

It originated in the desire of uniting into a society all those who were interested in the progress of Christianity. Its objects, as set forth in the Consti- tution, are : I. The promotion of religion and morality among the students. 2. The consideration of religion in its connection with historj, philosophy and science. Meetings are regularly held on Wednesday afternoons, one meeting out of three being devoted to a lecture by some man of ability, when such can be secured. The other meetings are occupied in studying together the International Series of Sunday School lessons. The society is not only open to all, but all who are interested in the past, present and future of Christ ' s kingdom in this earth are urged to join. " And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst, Come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. " (Rev. xxii, 17.)

This consisted of literary exercises, in which as many as three or four members of the class appeared. The relation which the present Junior Class bears to the Faculty and to the University is, however, an anomalous one. They are few in number, and, though recognized by the Faculty as a class, persist in regarding themselves as individuals only. Thus it is that they have no class organization ; thus it is, also, that they have tacitly agreed to hold no Junior Exhibition. Tt is unfortunate for the University and its friends that any Junior Exhibition should be omitted, more especially that of a class whose high scholarship would have made much of the literary part of the exercises, and whose energy would have rendered the dancing in the afternoon one of the long remembered times. The University has few enough such days of enjoyment and relaxation as it is, and any tendency toward their diminution should be strenuously resisted. y _ THE BLUE AND GOLD. rf " TABLE TALK. SHEP.

This is a new feature in University affairs. A year ago there existed class rifle teams, which did some practice, but they were not placed upon a firm enough basis to ever accomplish much good. The present rifle team is selected from the best shots in the University, and is under the supervision of Col. Edwards. Great care was taken to choose the best marksmen, and it is hoped that at an early day they may win a victory over some of the leading teams of the State. The names below were chosen in this manner : After each student had made one score, the third with highest scores again shot. From those who made the highest scores this time, ten were chosen to constitute the team, and a few others for substitutes. COL. GEO. C. EDWARDS, H. C. PERRY, R. A. BERRY, H. M. EDMONDS, R. M.

Once a man wrote a dialogue on literature as an exact science, which was conducted by a philos pher and a fool. PHILOSOPHER. Interesting as a statement of facts, but what then? FOOL. Then he published it. But those youthful hours, in which the allurements of the spelling book had yielded to the more subtle charms of tit-tat-toe rose up against him, and he spelled philosopher -i-, and fool p-h-o-o-L PHIL. I see your moral wasted opportunities and the ridicule of critics. FOOL. You anticipate, in consequence of his wasted opportunities, all the fool ' s folly was prefaced by p-h, and all the philosopher ' s by . PHIL. Exactly. And everybody who saw the dialogue laughed. FOOL. Not exactly. Nobody who saw the dialogue knew the difference. PHIL. You cause me to think. FOOL. Impossible THE FOOL AND THE COMMANDANT. COMMANDANT (reading). " Excuse of private A. Fool.

The science of making money out of government contracts. THE BLUE AND GOLD. 101 COM. Do you wish we had a war? FOOL. No. I wish I had a contract. COM. What is a siege? FOOL. A contest to determine which of two armies can do the least for the longest time. COM. How are the besiegers occupied ? FOOL. In playing " seven-up. " COM. How are the besieged occupied? FOOL. In playing Old Sledge. " COM. Which side wins? FOOL. The one whose cards wear out last. COM. What is a sortie ? FOOL. An attempt on the part of the besieged to get more cards. THE FOOL AND THE PROFESSOR. PROFESSOR. Did you ever study Greek ? FOOL. No. I learned conditional sentences till I could tell one with my left hand tied behind me ; but I never got to Greek. An angel came to me and told me my labors were in vain. PROF. Ah ! Then you are wont to receive celestial callers. How do you determine whether or not your visitor be an angel ? FOOL. I talk to him of an with the optative. If he don ' t knock me down, I ' ve got an angel. PROF. You are a fool. FOOL. You ' re not an angel. THE FOOL AND THE GARDENER. FOOL. I am come for botanical information. What is that ? GARDENER. That ' s a tree. FOOL. Truly said ; but of what kind ? GARD. Kind of tall and straight, with green leaves. FOOL. Ah ! thanks. Then the leaves are green. I feared an optical delusion. Yet, what is that ? GARD. A flower. FOOL. And the next ! GARD. A weed. FOOL. -All-discriminating intellect of Jove ! How do you distinguish the two ! GARD. I don ' t distinguish the two, FOOL. What then ? GARD. I distinguish one and extinguish the other. 102 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. FOOL. Can you build roads?

You should have died, had you said gardener. THE FOOL AND THE TUTOR. FOOL. What is necessary to a proper study of the German language? TUTOR. Will you give me your attention for a moment? If the study of German is worth pursuing at all, and it seems to be the general opinion that is so, or if it is not the general opinion that it is so, or even if it really is not so, as it probably is, we may conclude that, whether it is so or whether it is not so, the only way to properly study the German language is and always has been, or if it hasn ' t always been, or if it has it ought to have been, and, besides, I think it has been anyway, although since all men are liable to error, I may be mistaken in my judgment. But if I am not, or if I am, FOOL. Yes, yes ; I know. But how would you go to work to TUTOR. I will come to that ; don ' t let us lose any time. I was saying when you interrupted me that the study of the German language was such and in saying this I am simply echoing the opinion of men much more skilled than myself that the study of German is such that unless a man, as he very seldom is, is able to apply himself that is, unless he is imbued with the spirit of the true philosophy, or unless he assume the appearance of being so imbued, so that the entire result, whatever it may be and probably is, will be the same as if he were, so that he reads con- stantly outside reading and reviews, or if, which is more FOOL. Oh, heavens ! I shall miss my train. Good day, sir ! THE FOOL AND THE CO-ED. Co-ED. Ruskin says FOOL. Pardon me. One moment. The arrogance of conceit prompts your quotation. You either think you know more than the rest of us, or better than the rest of us. In the one case, Co-ED. Nothing of the kind. I merely wish (o enlighten the pro- fessor and show the section the advantages of a wide range of reading. For, as Spencer says, FOOL. It ' s my turn now. In the one case, you have chosen the grace- 4 less task of a self-imposed teacher. In the other, K A V ! THE BLUE AND GOLD. 103 Co-ED. You are always interrupting me, and now you have driven out of my mind almost all that I had to say, and made it useless for me to continue. Because, as Jacinto says I quote from memory " It is pretty impossible to accord to another those things whereof we are not ourselves possessed of. Because by so doing " - FOOL. Oh ! Toss it a biscuit. THE FOOL AND THE CHEMIST. FOOL. I found lead in my solution. CHEMIST. You have made some mistake ; there is no lead in it. FOOL. I ' m almost certain I found lead in it. CH. No. sir; you are mistaken. There was no lead in it. FOOL. That ' s very strange. I was sure there was lead in it. CH. No, sir. There was antimony, bismuth and tin in it, but no lead. FOOL (smiling triumphantly). Oh, yes ! I found all those others. Give me another solution. THE CO-ED. AND THE CO-ED, IST Co. ED. Sar ey ! 2ND Co-ED. What - ey ? 1ST Co-ED. Did you know that some one had put my overshoes in the coal scuttle ? 2ND Co-ED. Impossible.

PROFESSOR. Veil, to-day ve begin on a new subject. If you hef you ' notes, you hef all. (Cleans the board.) Mr. Storey, did you solve the prwoblem ? STORAY. Which of them ? PROFESSOR. Any of them. STORAY. No, sir. PRO ' F. Mr. Gill, do you understand the prwoblems ? GILL. Yes, sir. PROF. No you don ' t. GILL. Well, not very clearly. PROF. How many degrwees of clearness there exist, Mr. Gill ! Mr. Coon, did you see everything I went over the last time ? COON (with manly resolution). No, sir ; I didn ' t see anything at all. PROF. Veil, Mr. Coon, I am sorry for you. You do not hef the right way to study. I tell you what you do. You re-rwead you ' notes ; then you come in my little room I hef a little black-board and ve talk it about. Now I gif you a prwoblem, and you vill all see instantly how to construct the curve of motion. " Suppose a rwabbit you know a rwabbit rwuns along a fence, and a dog trwies to catch him, how long vill he do it? catch him, I mean. " Mr. Laidle, ven vill the rwabbit be caught ? LAIDLE. Well I should think the dog would stop after a while. Does he keep on running ? PROF. Oh, of course. GILL. Does the rabbit keep on running? (Turns around in his seat, gives one of his grins, sticks Havens with a pin, and looks around at the class very well satisfied.) PROF. Mr. Gill, you hef been sick. I see you hef not entirely re- covered, I vill see you prwivately. Go on, Mr. Laidle. LAIDLE. Well, I should think - PROF. Vait von moment. Mr. Pearson, what vould be the curve descrwihed by the dog ? PEARSONS. Well, ha! hem! ah! well I should think oh -h-h ! what ' s the question, Professor ? _ N THE BLUE AND GOLD. Ill PROF. Can you descrwibe the curve made by the hund? PEARSONS. By the paragram of motion, the ah-h-ah dg would reproach the hare, and ha-h well, give the whole system a relevatio n in a contrasted direction. Why, ah ! why, it would prescribe a bent line PROF. Mr. Pearsons, you got mixed a little up. You think on the subject for next time, ve hef a way to do that. [Wipes chalk from sleeve, lays down eraser. Havens grabs his hat, bends towards the door as if to start ; but when Professor takes a fresh piece of chalk and starts a fresh subject, Havens sinks into his former state of repose, with no other remark than ' ' Shaw !

Mr. Gill, I Mr. Laidle, don ' t sleep I see you are imprwoving. CLARK. I thought ' twas a cannon ball ; you said cannon ball the last time. PROF. My grwacious ! Mr. Clark, you take the board ; I listen. Grwavity takes only place down, and I could use a cannon ball if I vant, but I vont. MOORE. Go over that again, professor ? PROF. Moore Mr. Moore I lead you a little on. If I gif you time and ' space, can you find velocity. MOORE. No, sir. PROF. Thank you, Mr. Moore ; that is the best answer I hef heard to-day. You know what you are talking about. [Bell rings, all smile, say " Ah ! " and leave the room, the professor still talking.] T.A.OTIOS, Roll is called by Captain France, and all found present or accounted for, especially accounted for, Mann, McGillivray and Mastick are sent to the board, and in the meantime other members endeavor to secure posilions with open books behind the broad-shouldered men of the section. Partsch is called to the floor. PETE (sotto voce). Come, Pat, let ' s let tit-tat-toe go for a while. We have a circus on hand now. FRANCE. Mr. Partsch, how is " fours right " executed? PARTSCH. " Fours right? " The men turn right round. I knew I wouldn ' t forget that ! FRANCE. Mr. Partsch, this is no trifling matter. Don ' t joke with me. [Partsch looks confused, but awaits the next onset in silence.] FRANCE. Mr. Partsch, now can you tell me where the band goes in a battalion ? MOORE (prompting). To Bachman ' s. t V 112 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. PARTSCH. Yes, sir ; it goes No, it follows around. [To Moore : " That aint in the book, is it?] FRANCE. Mr. Partsch, this nonsense must be stopped. I ' ll give you one more chance. When guide is changed, how do file-closers get through the ranks ? PARTSCH. (in desperation) They stand still and take a running jump. FRANCE (lowering). That will do, Mr. Partsch. [Partsch sits down with disappointed air, and nurses his metal cap. Pete and Pat resume tit-tat-toe.] Next called on is Mr. Mann, at the board, who has been drawing pictures and rubbing them out, waiting for an inspiration. FRANCE. Mr. Mann, explain " camping? " MANN. There ' s a little picture in the book that will illustrate what I have to say very nicely, Captain. I ' ll get it. FRANCE. Never mind the book. Mann looks at France, then the section, puts a handkerchief to his nose, and glides through the door, murmuring " nose-bleed. " McGillivray leaves the board and seats himself behind one of the " broad-shoulders, " but under strict watch by France. JIM. Pat, how do you form a battalion ! PAT. Why don ' t you look in the book ? JIM. I can ' t find the place. Pat finds place for him, and gives him the book. JIM. I don ' t know what it means. You read it for me. Here the conversation is interrupted by Jim being called upon. JIM. For heaven ' s sake, Pat, help me out ? FRANCE. Mr. McGillivray, who forms the battalion? PAT (sotto). Sergeant-major and adjutant. " JIM. Surgeon-master and assistant. This remark is followed by laughter from the section, and Jim, thinking he has been roped in, corrects by saying, " No, no ; of course not it ' s the superintendent. He calls the roll. " France has no remark to make on this last answer, but asks, " When the battalion marches in line, where is the guide ? " Jim, promptly, " Right. " Then after studying France ' s countenance, says " Left ; " and an expression of satisfaction steals over Jim ' s face for having correctly answered one question out of the many. FRANCE. That will do, Mr. McGillivray ' ; the guide is centre. FRANCE. Mr. Mastick, are you ready to recite ? MASTICK (turning hurriedly the leaves of his Upton). Yes, sir; I ' ll be ready in just a minute. FRANCE. How do the men keep step when the battalion is marching in column ? MASTICK. They all take step from the man who says something like " Hay foot, straw foot. " V A T THE BLUE AND GOLD. 113 STOREY. Captain, is that in to-day ' s lesson? MASTICK (who now sees his way clearly, interrupts) No, sir, I re- member ; that is not in to-day ' s lesson. Suter, at the board, looks at his watch, and finding the time only half gone, insists that Mastick ' s exaction is in the lesson j but Captain decides that " Hay foot, straw foot, " cannot be found in school of battalion, and dismisses the section, saying it will be more profitable to all parties to watch the target shooting than to make such recitations. I NST. Gentlemen : To-day we take up the subject I started on at the last lecture. Co-ED. (sotto voce) I don ' t care ; he might say " Ladies, " too. INST. I speak of the new and local minerals which have lately been found about Berkeley, We will take up the minerals in the order of their characteristic hardness. The hardest character yet found is Hecktite. It ' s chemical composition is one part Bor(e)on and the rest gas. Its streak is brassy yellow about drill hour. Its color is changeable. Ordinarily it is pinkish, but immediately turns crimson on approach of seminaries. The hardness of Calculus has always been considered highest, but by careful and repeated experiment, this new mineral, Hecktite, has re- cently been made to scratch through calculus, and now heads the list with a hardness of 10. It occurs as a pseudomorph after Budweiser, in the German province of Bachmany. It can also be found at vacation time around hotels in mining towns, but never underground. Its uses are many. It is sometimes placed at the end of a sword for ballast, and has been used well to weigh down military chargers. It is the most important thing in Sacramento. The next mineral u e come to is the most curious and interesting one known in mineralogy. The mineralogist is filled with consternation on beholding it, and with awe upon studying it. I refer to the mineral which is found in every mineralogist ' s drawer Partschite. Its composition 1 is a mixture of Aluminum, Sulphur, Hydrogen, Iodine and Tellurium ; but as we find it in the laboratory, small quantities of acid are secreted about it. Owing to its peculiarities, its exact composition is hard to ascertain. One on first seeing it will always exclaim, " What is it? " Its color is an unchangeable agricultural brown, but rendered somewhat lighter by an application of stearate of potash. Its hardness has not yet been determined. Professor Colby, while carelessly experimenting with a knife to determine its hardness, met with an accident which nearly cost the professor his life. The mineral effervesced, boiled over, and finally II X; 114 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. f exploded, throwing the professor nearly half way across the laboratory. The professor, however, is not discouraged, as he says this mineral is much easier to handle than Howellite was. It crystallizes very irregularly. The specimen here is a monoclinic pyramid, the top of which has traces of a very fine hirsute growth. So rare and delicate is this growth that, in order to preserve it, the top is kept covered with a metallic cap. It is found in parched rural districts. It has been tried for military purposes, but with no success. A musket placed against it immediately assumes an awkward position. Next in order comes Conradite. This mineral is pretty soft, is found deposited near shallow Pooles, and is of a brick-red color. It is found aLong with Christytite. Last comes Weberbite, softest of all. It is found in all kinds of dirt, and is used as a gem, on account of its extreme beauty. Instructor retires, bowing ; the class follows. THE BLUE AND GOLD. Name James K. P. Fairboy, Jr. ; complexion milky ; beard none ; profession freshman ; previous record smart boy of village and store- house for biblical learning ; practical experience aspirations indefinite. This is a partial description of a thing which found its way to Berkeley, in September, 187 ; and strangely enough, the hopes of an admiring circle of friends and relations were centered in the package. Let us call it James for short, and see what became of the hopes. After securing a room and paying for the same without hesitation, the pictures of the Fairboy family are hung about the walls, and the centre table is well covered by the family bible, now on iis first visit from home. McGuffey ' s Fifth Reader, Quackenbos ' Philosophy, Robinson ' s Algebra, Greenleafs Arith- metic and Cornell ' s Physical Geography are also conspicuously displayed, and various samples of needle work done in worsted by female members of the Fairboy family are hung about on convenient pegs, and James surveys with mucli satisfaction the worsted scarf and mittens which were provided by " ma, " in anticipation of a possible cold wave passing over the seat o f learning. All this happened some years ago, and the writer, happening to be a friend of the Fairboys, particularly Miss Amelia F., was permitted to enjoy the correspondence which ensued. Samples of that correspondence are herewith reproduced. J. K. P. Fairboy, Jr. to Mrs. Mary Fairboy. MY DEAR MOTHER : I have now been here three months and have learned a great deal. I had to buy all new books ' cause the faculty wants every body to have the same ones, and the old ones I had were very different from the ones they use here and I had to get new ones like the rest of the fellows. I have been very fortunate I think in gitting a room in the house where I am for there is a young man a sophomore, that ' s ahea d of me, who is very kind and says if I will only follow his advice, he will make me head of my class. He took me out rowing lately and I paid for the boat and our lunch, although he did not like me to at all. I have not any spending money left, and I want to take Brooks to the matinee Saturday, so please A UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. send me $2.00, being good to me of course I must retaliate and he says I shant be hazed as long as I amhis friend. I dont get along very well in mathematics as Professor Welcker has a different way from what I used to recite in, but Brooks says it will be all right when examination comes. This is a very long letter so no more at present. From Your Affectionate Son, JAMES. P. S. Love to Father and Sister. J. . K. P. Fairboy, Jr. to Miss Amelia Fairboy. MY DEAR SISTER : I write you because I want to get you to help me to do something in figuring I have a friend here named Brooks and he has given me this problem to work out and I can ' t do it : " Suppose a bumble bee roll an ounce ball up an angle of forty-five degrees, how much will he shoulder on a dead level ? " I have worked nights on this for three weeks and Brooks says I must be a fearful " muff " if I can ' t do it. Now help me out Amelia because you always was clever in rithmetic. Brooks says it is always customary for " freshies " to give the " sophs " a blowout on Christ- mas or before, so please send me a nice Christmas basket when you can. Write soon, and no more at present, Your Loving Brother, JAMES. P. S. I have made Brooks a present of my breastpin which you gave me. I knew you wouldn ' t care. J. Fairboy, Sr. to Fairboy, Jr. MY DEAR SON : Enclosed you will find $20, which acknowledge by return. Attend to your duties strictly. Let your friend Brooks alone and depend on yourself. Practice penmanship and learn to express your ideas briefly. Your mother sends her love. Your loving father, J. K. FAIRBOY. Fairboy, Jr. to Mrs. Mary Fairboy. MY DEAR MOTHER : I am feeling very miserable. Three nights ago a crowd of fellows came to my room with handkerchiefs on their faces and two of them came up to me and said I must go with them. Just as they were leading me away up comes my friend Brooks and demanded what was the matter. A short consultation was held and Brooks took me one side and said they were going to haze me. The only way to stop them was to set up treats for the crowd. This I did and it cost me $5. But this is not the worst, on THE BLUE AND GOLD the next night they came and took me out and cut my hair off short and blacked my face. I thought I heard Brooks ' s voice in the crowd, but he says I am wrong and that if I will keep still he will bring the matter before the faculty. Don ' t say anything about it therefore and I will tell you when the case is settled, Don ' t be anxious about me I am not hurt much, but was very badly frightened by the masks and things. I had better have some more money as Brooks tells me that is the only way to protect myself against so many ruffians. Your Affectionate Son, JAMES. After one year and a half the Fairboy correspondence had taken on a different tone so far as James was concerned, and this writer having become estranged from Miss Amelia, is unable to give more than a sample of its style. James Jr. to Mrs. Mary Fairboy. MY DEAR MOTHER : I am making rapid strides up the hill of knowledge, and expect one day to make my mark in accordance with all your hopes. I think my tastes are decidedly liteiary, and I believe I will follow that line. I send you enclosed my essays on " Happiness, " and " The Solar System. " I got ninety per cent, from Pioda in French last term, and eighty-five in militar, science, which I consider a fair record. You remember my friend Brooks who came home with me in vacation well, I don ' t think so much of him now, I have another friend, Hawkins, a Junior, he writes very nice poetry and thinks a great deal of my taste. He frequently comes to my room when I have a spread. He tells me that I should " aim at the highest, " and I know that one day he will be a very great man. I am taking a great interest in athletic sports. I don ' t see why father wants to scold a fellow for every trifle, I am not a little boy, and I am no worse than any body else at my age. Please get Pa to send me some spend- ing money lor the short vacation. No more at present. Your Loving Son, JAMES. Fairboy. Jr. to Miss Amelia. MY DEAR SISTER : I have only time to write you a few words, owing to the pressure of my duties at the U. I very much need an overcoat and can get one for $15 plenty good enough. I did not like to ask mother for it, for fear she would ask father. Now don ' t you send me any of your spending money, I don ' t want to deprive you, although I might pay you back. I have begun to smoke a little, believing that it will do me no harm. Ask mother what she thinks about it. Write soon, and believe me to be your loving brother. JAMES. 118 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA.

After the lapse of one year more the following letter was written. James, Jr. to James, Sr. MY DEAR FATHER : I have to acknowledge that during the past year I have not done what I ought to have done. I have been extravagant and a little dissipated, but I have sounded the depths of this sort of thing, and it no longer possesses attractions. I can only explain my actions upon the theory of youth, inexperience and unfortunate associations. If you can forget what has already transpired, I can engage to meet your wishes in the future more satisfactorily. As I have said, with the large experience which I have had in the world ' s ways, I shall scarcely be tempted to stray again. I have recently formed the acquaintance of several agreeable ladies, and I have come to the belief that there is much virtue for a young man in female society. I need some clothes in order to appear properly in the society of these ladies, and I hope you will kindly forget what has gone before, and encourage me in the new direction. I have written to mother, and sign myself with much respect, Your loving Son, JAMES. Mrs. Mary Fairboy to James. Jr. MY DEAR SON : Your noble letter to your father was read to me, and it made me very proud of you. There was no need to write me to intercede for you, because your father was very much pleased with your genuine repentance. He has directed me to send you $50, and I add $25 more for myself. The society of good women, my son, will be of great benefit to you, and it is my wish that you may always remember never to be guilty of a word or deed which would not be properly done or snoken in your own home. Write me often, and keep me informed of your new associations. I am always anxious to hear of anything which effects your wellfare. I think your 1 z_ X THE BLUE AND GOLD. 119 father had written to learn how you were getting on, and I was therefore more glad when you made your noble confession. Amelia will be married soon, and you will then be the only one left to me. May you try to be a comfort to us all, and everything shall be forgotten, Your Loving Mother, M. FAIRBOY. The last of the correspondence ran in this wise : James, Jr., to, Sr. MY DEAR FATHER : As you know, I am soon to graduate from the University, and college days will then be over for me. I do not doubt that I shall make my way without difficulty, for during the past year I have come to a realization of the duties which are soon to devolve upon me in my hand-to- hand struggle with the world. Although my record has not been high in the University, I feel that my experience has been invaluable ; and were it not for regret at severing the pleasant associations of years, I should be ready and anxious to step forth into the battle of life. There is another matter, however, which is very near my heart, and of which I desire to speak. As you know, I have been in society for over one year past, and I believe that I have found my affinity. At least, I have met and learned to love a young lady, without whom I can never be happy. Although I have no profession or weal th, I know that all these things will be made easy by our mutual devotion and determination to win the prizes of life. I shall, of course, need your assistance for a time, and hence I write to ask your consent to my marriage with Miss Elizabeth Pinckney, of San Pablo. If your consent be withheld, you will merely drive me to desperate measures, as I feel and know that, without my love, life would be but a burden too heavy to be borne. With much respect, dear Father, and awaiting with impatience your affirmative answer, I am, Your Loving Son, JAMES K. FAIRBOY, JR. Same date. MY DEAR MOTHER : I have written Father to-day. He will communicate with you. As you love me, intercede for me. My hopes of life and happiness now rest with you. Your Loving Son, JAMES. v A 120 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. James, Sr., to James, Jr. MY DEAR SON : The pressure of examinations has evidently turned your head. There will be plenty ol time ten years from now for you to think of matrimony and " desperate measures. " All young things have the measles, and you are having your turn. You may be excused for committing suicide, but not for starving somebody ' s daughter. Come home and go to work. We can talk this matter over then ; at present, no more about it. Your Affectionate Father, JAMES K. FAIRBOY, SR. Post Graduate Letter. (THOMAS HAWKINS TO JOHN SPARKS). DEAR SPARKY : Speaking of college days, do you remember young Fairboy that entered in 187 ? I think he was the biggest noodle of us all You will recall how Jeff Brooks worked him for six long months, using his spending money, making him guess on impos- sible problems all night and run his errands during the day. I made quite a respectable " fag " out of him later myself. Used to quote Byron and Milton as original with myself, and then warn him not to read those authors, for fear of spoiling his style. You know, too, how he took to society during his senior year, and how it wound up in his thinking Lizzie Pinckney wanted to marry him. He used to think that of all the girls, for that matter. Well, where do you think he is now ? In the United States Senate? No; he is teaching the village school in Milpitas, and when I last saw him said that he had just begun to learn what an ignoramus he had been. You and I have not had a similar experience, have we ? How- ever, that is personal. Come and see me when you can. Bring Mrs. S. and the babies along ; we shall be delighted to see you. Your old Friend, HAWKINS. THE BLUE AND GOLD. THE EDITOR ' S AFTERTHOUGHT. IT IS IDO3STE, : Our task is performed, and the result in the form of this modest volume is presented to our fellow students, by them to be examined and judged. We have labored hard to render these pages acceptable to all ; we have entered into our work with heart and soul, and now we welcome with these closing lines the restful quiet that will follow the fret and worry over mislaid manuscript, and the vexation of spirit caused by vile proof. But the feeling with which we approach the end is not altogether one of pleasure, for in spite of temporary annoyances we have enjoyed the preparation of this volume. It has unfolded to us a new world entirely distinct from that around us, one which has imposed upon us no studies except agreeable ones concerning the introduction of jokes, and the arrangement of ' cuts. ' Nor have we been harassed, as elsewhere, by professors and tutors, for in these pages they have laid aside their grandeur of mien, and condescended to amuse instead of instruct us. We have heaped indignities upon them or their images, thus retaliating upon our former tormentors for all the miseries we have endured in our many interviews with them. Ah ! these past few weeks have indeed been weeks of serene enjoyment, and when we reflect on the genuine pleasure which we have derived from the work we are now completing, the " restful quiet " welcomed by us just now, becomes the uninterrupted drudgery of college tasks. But in spite of regrets we must throw down our pen, and bid farewell to the editorial chair. We cannot, however, part with this number of the Blue and Gold without expressing a wish that it may be accepted as but a link in a long chain of University Annuals ; that, as each year rolls around, a similar volume will regularly appear laden with its treasures of collegiate history, and fancy and fiction. And it is our hope that the custom of issuing the Blue and Gold will be observed so faithfully, that when on some occasion far in the future the students shall seek its origin, they will be compelled to relinquish the search, and acknowledge that it has come down to them " from a time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary.
