Yes, ladies and gentlemen the Great Consolidated Higher Education Puppet Show is again about to exhibit before you. A whole year has gone by since it was last in Berkeley, and a year is a long time; so I doubt not that you are ready for another peep at the pretty little puppets, as they go through their well- practiced antics. You have heard so often from former managers of the puppets and of the nature of the Show, that I need not waste breath in explaining them. But since our last visit to Berkeley on our annual tour, a number of important additions and alterations have been made in the attractions offered. No expense has been spared; for, as you will ob- serve, a number of new figures have been added, and nearly every one in the collection has been fitted out with a new suit of clothes. So let us pause for a moment before the show begins, while I point out to your notice some of the special attractions before you. Many of the figures remain just as you have so often seen them on former tours of the puppets. You will all remember the Prex puppet, the central figure of the stage. It was not a favorite feature when first introduced into the Show. It still occupies, as you see, the most promi- nent position, though it does not play as important a part as some of the lesser figures. And the familiar forms of the two old wise men none of you have forgotten them. In these there has not been one whit of change during the past year not even in their attire. They were always among the most attractive of the puppets, and to remove them from the stage would really be dangerous to the future success of the Show. The Herodotus puppet, you will observe, still occupies its old place. It works in such a peculiar manner that to see it once is to remember it BLUE AND GOLD always. On the ladies ' minds, in particular, the figure seems to make so strong an impression that we doubt whether they ever, under any condi- tions, forget it. The mathematical group, since the main figure has been replaced, has risen in popular favor. Yet I must call your attention to the extraordinary make-up of one of the figures of this group. So Satanic and lifelike is it, that children have had to be taken out, scream- ing with fright at the sight of it. It is popular with the Irishmen, though, and is so firmly fixed that it could not be removed without difficulty. And so in the background will be recognized many other familiar figures, such as the Setting puppet, the venerable puppet that works with cranks and the pretty little Agricultural puppet. But these, as you know, are only retained to fill up and do not appear conspicuously in the Show. Changes will happen in all things, though, as the man said that got away with the best umbrella; and a puppet show is no exception to the rule. For instance, you will all notice a new figure in the place of the Recorder puppet. The old one was among the memorable features oi the entertainment, but had become worn out with service and no longer worked smoothly on the wires. It has been removed to a less conspic- uous position in the History group, where it plays the part of Joan(s) of (the) Arc. Its smile, however, has been preserved and is still one of the great attractions. It is a dapper little puppet that now occupies the place, and you would wonder at its mode of action unless I told you the secret of it. The truth is, it is worked by an invisible wire not in the hands of the general management. This improvement has been made only recently, but has been found to work like a charm. Perhaps, if it continues to act successfully, we shall try the same plan with some of the other figures before the year is over. And here again you will miss a familiar figure from the Greek and Latin group; one that did not appear conspicuously but was still a great favorite. It had always worked so nicely that the management never dreamed of any trouble with it. But one day it was discovered that this puppet and the Greek Autocrat there, which stood side by side, were constantly wearing against each other; and as the Autocrat was of much greater weight, the other piece was so badly damaged that it had to be taken off the stage. The Autocrat puppet was only a little chafed by the accident, and seems to have received no great injury ; but as you can see for yourselves, it is not as firmly fixed on the wires as it was before. Come, come, you children over there in the corner, don ' t get restless. There is only a little more to be said now before the show begins. And here, too, is something especially meant for you. Just look at the Mili- tary group, with the streamers and gold epaulets, the swords, the drums and the trumpets. How is that for display? These puppets have been made one of the main attractions since the last appearance. A new centre-piece has been procured ; more figures have been adorned with BLUE AND GOLD epaulets and swords ; and above all, a chief musician puppet has been introduced, that would be the making of any show. And then see how the Colonel puppet stands out from the rest. Perhaps you have won- dered why it is given so prominent a position, for it is certainly not a handsome piece. But the reason is simple enough : that figure is made of solid brass. It is the only one of the kind among the puppets, and in fact we doubt whether anything similar can be found in any other exhibi- tion now in existence. If we had but a few more like this one, we feel sure that our show would be talked about all over the world. To the English group, also, an addition has been made since the pup- pets last appeared before you. It now comprises His Majesty King Albert, Henry the Prince of Wales and Cornelius the Pedagogue. The Prince puppet has been imported direct from England; and this, of course, accounts for its being a little better than any of the others. The figures of this group, it must be admitted, do not work quite smoothly as yet; and their action has been justly criticised as somewhat cranky. We hope, though, to correct this defect in time. During the entertainment the King puppet will perform the feat of scattering Cookies to the crowd. They are harmless, but we would advise you not to swallow them whole. To make the group even more striking, a subordinate figure has been added as attendant on the King. But this last puppet is, in fact, made only of Putty, and has nothing to do but support the King ' s train. And now just look at this last figure undoubtedly the most amusing feature of the whole exhibition. It represents one of the old Albin fathers. Of course you all remember it, for you have all laughed at it ever since the puppets were first brought to Berkeley. It is the same piece it always was, but a slight change has been made in its mode of action. It now performs its tricks in a Chair. You may not see the reason for this at once, but after you have watched the puppet act in the new position, you will appreciate how much the change has added to the effect. And so some other alterations, more or less important, have oc- curred since the last appearance. But they are slight and I will not try your patience further in sp eaking of them. The management has arranged everything only with the desire to amuse you. If you go away well pleased we shall feel fully repaid for our pains. But now, children, keep your eyes wide open. The curtain is up. An able corps of assis- tants stand behind the scenes with their fingers on the wires. The bell rings and the show begins with a grand Faculty dance. 00ARD OF RGNT3, ' It is difficult to say who do us the most mischief, enemies with the worst intention , or friends with the besc.

" ' - EIGHTY-FOUR, A 1 ND it came to pass that in these days there was great commotion among the Berklites, and throughout the streets of their city there was much running together. And they spoke together, one to the other, saying " Have you seen them? " For among them had come a new race, which was called the Ateforites, and to the number of sixty- two came they. And they were great. Then were the wise men of the city called together and they said, " Lo! have we abided in the country for these many seasons, and we have seen the sons of men come together and depart hence. Behold we have in- creased their conditions and have impressed them with our greatness, BLLE AND GOLD but now we are paralyzed. Rejoice, ye men ofAtefore, for there shall be much mirth, and cooked flesh shall be eaten and strong wine shall flow, and there shall be high times, for we have never seen the likes of you before. " Now in the country of the Berklites was a tribe called Sophomore, and they waxed exceeding wroth, and spoke together, saying ' ' Those fellows are too fresh; " and other slighting remarks put they upon the newcomers. And they said " Behold, we will rush them. " And the Ateforites came together as one man in the field which is called the Campus. And they went towards the Sophomores to war with them but could not prevail against them and they were overthrown. And they rent their garments and called with a loud voice, saying " Let us go to Bach ' s, which is in the street of the Alstones, and we will drown our rage in strong drink, and we will be wise in our time, for in much rushing is there much labor and little pleasure. And even so did they. Now it came to pass when the Ateforites had abided in the city of the Berklites for the space of twelve moons, a new tribe did come who were called Freshmen. And behold they did appear on the plain ot Campus, bearing aloft in scorn the sacred symbol of the Ateforites, even the mortar-board. And they did jeer at the Ateforites and did taunt them, saying " Come and rush us. " And for three hours did they rush and there was much slaughter. Wherefore the Ateforites did exult much, saying " We have met the enemy and we are his ' n. " Now among the Freshmen there were several loud men, and the Ate- forites siezed upon one of them and they did shear the locks from his head till he was bald, aye, even as an egg. And straightway in the morning the chief priest and the elders held a consultation and they rent their clothes and were much disturbed. Then he whom they call Billy the Prex arose and spake: " These fellows must be sat upon, yea, heavily will we sit on them. Ere to-morrow ' s sun sets, Berkeley must no longer know the Ateforites, for these shall be the days of vengeance, that all things which have been decreed shall be fullfilled. And a messenger, even Wm. Carey the scribe of the Faculty, came to the banished ones, and when they heard they packed up their duds and skipped. But when two moons had passed, the wise men relented and the Ateforites were welcomed back to the town of the Berklites. And BLUE AND GOLD the second year of their stay among the Berklites came to an end. When the Ateforites had resided for the space of two and a half years among the Berklites a new wise man did appear and he was called Ponco. And when the Ateforites did bust a flag staff he did speak unto them, saying " Replace that flag-staff or you ' ll be fired. " And he con- sulted with the chief priest and the chief priest said " I do not know but I think you are right. " And the Ateforites delayed replacing the flag-staff and they consulted with the chief priest and he said " do not know, but I will consult the Faculty; " and they were banished for three weeks. And the Ateforites became great men among the Berklites and rulers did rise up from among the Ateforites and their stay among the Berklites was in all four years. And they departed. fin n_ - ' .I HM 0Ms THJ, VORCE OT ' iWK. l - No 8NIOR CUSS, " Most potent, grave and reverend signiors. " Othello OFFICERS, W. A. BEATTY, . . . ......... PRESIDENT.

That she has numerous and signal virtues, no one can deny; that she is not without faults, she herself acknowledges with charac- teristic modesty and the soothing mental reservation, that " a diamond with a flaw is better than a pebble without. " 20 BLUE AND GOLD As a class, Eighty-five has always inclined towards Conservatism; not that she lacks either originality or independence, but that she pos- sesses that admirable quality, so rare in iconoclastic young America, veneration for old and established customs, and a becoming distrust of her ability to improve on them; together with that moderation that chooses a happy medium as the safest principle of action in most emer- gencies. If by chance during her career she has been guilty of folly and undue assurance, let it be remembered that these were but accidental and excusable ebullitions of youthful impetuosity and self-confidence, long since calmed by college influence and discipline. But perhaps Eighty-five ' s most prominent trait is her truly Christian spirit. De- veloped early in her Freshman year, it led her to sacrifice herself a victim to the time-honored custom of hazing; nor did the combined sympathy of press and public, the kindly consideration of the Faculty, or the misfortunes of Eighty-four, awaken in her breast unseemly exultation or vain-glorious pride. And who dare maintain that the charity which she has to all appearances always displayed toward her natural foes, Eighty-six, is the less admirable for being a tenet in the creed of the honorable Faculty, as well as in that of the Church ? As Freshmen, we were enthusiastic but modest, giving vent to our new-born ardor by riotously squandering our sustenance in class hats and pins, and bottling up all superfluous spirits to support us in our affliction at the burial of Conic Sections, an enterprise undertaken with an energy and accomplished with a decorum that alone should surround the name of Eighty-five with a halo not less brilliant but more lasting than the rockets that illumined her fantastic train on that eventful evening. As Sophomores, a sudden and abnormal development of brain gave birth to the " Eighty-five, " a class paper devoted to an impartial survey of current topics, whose brief but illustrious existence furnishes but another proof that " Whom the gods love, die young. " A firm believer in the salutary effects of competition, Eighty-five about the same time offered a stimulus to Eighty-four ' s Junior Day speakers, in the shape of a liter- rary production that no later class has dared to emulate. Encouraged by their success in journalism, the class signified their appreciation of their English instructor, Mr. Royce, then lately left for Harvard, by the presentation of a handsome edition of the dramas of Aeschylus. 28 BLUE AND GOLD As Juniors, Eighty-five has displayed all her former virtues and tal- ents, enhanced by two years of University influence and experience. As in her Freshman and Sophomore years, she has excelled in athletics, winning golden laurels at foot-ball and base-ball and making creditable records on Field Day. Of the University Foot-ball Team she boasts five men, among them " the finest foot-ball player in California. " Hand in hand with athletics comes intellectual culture. The college journals, the literary societies, the Longfellow Association and Political Science Club find many of their most vigorous and talented supporters among the ranks of Eighty five. In matters of public interest she has taken a lead- ing part, lending material as well as moral encouragement to all praise- worthy college enterprises. Her Junior Day, the most memorable event of her career, passed off in spite of ominous skies and unruly Sopho- mores, with a success most gratifying to Eighty-five in particular and all friends of the University in general. Even now, the Junior looking back upon the eve of Junior Day, thinks with a smile of serene satisfaction of Eighty-six ' s futile attempts to shine as midnight marauders, destroying our decorations and carrying off our programs, and ol their subsequent discomfiture; and he imagines that certain bright and shining lights of Eighty-six recall with something other than a smile of satisfaction the sorry figure they cut, the pangs they endured and the canes and mortar- boards that soon after so mysteriously disappeared, leaving not a single survivor to tell the tale. Nor are these all the good deeds of which Eighty-five might boast, were she so inclined; but with innate modesty and prudence, she be- queaths to another tongue than mine the privilege of proclaiming those chivalrous achievements relegated, alas, for the present, to the shades of silence or conjecture. Some day, when her Senior plug is outgrown and the precious " sheepskin " has become a tangible reality within her grasp, may the spell be broken, and bards be found to sing of dan- gers braved in the cause of justice, of tyrants out-witted and oppressors humbled; to tell of youths, whose skill in hurling missiles might put the mighty Apollo to shame, whose speed when pursued outrivals Atalanta of old, whose disguises are diverse as those of fabled Proteus; youths daring in invention, persistent in execution, undismayed in failure, im- placable in vengeance. Verily, then shall the secrets of the prison house be revealed and unsolved mysteries be made manifest. BLUE AND GOLD 2 9 Three years witness many changes in the panorama of college life. Since the advent of Eighty-five, two classes have been graduated and of the hundred that then swelled her ranks, hardly a third remain. While welcoming several new members of the Faculty, we have been forced to bid farewell to others, whose departure we lament as a serious loss to ourselves and the University. But with that self-confidence which, as some famous man maintains, is the basis of all greatness, Eighty-five staunchly stands her ground and intends, with the kind permission of Fates and Faculty, to pursue the even tenor of her way into the longed-for realms of Senior Year. And now, before the curtain falls on the third act of the drama, she drops a pretty courtsey to her audience, and in response to the inevitable Bravo ! that she anticipates, begs leave to offer to her friends as a souvenir of the occasion, the BLUE AND GOLD.

Where no College Residence is given, it is the same as the Home. EIGHTY-SIX, TIME-HONORED custom demands that each class shall annually publish a history of such of its proceedings as may have been deemed worthy of record; and it is in deference to this custom that we now begin our task. As each Class departs but little from the trace of its predeces- sor, the succeeding accounts possess no great historical importance; and aside from the parties interested, there are few who care to peruse them The historian, as a precautionary measure, must deal sparingly with all events that do not reflect honor upon his class; but he should not so far depart from the veracity which his position demands, as to willfully pervert the truth in order to win for his class the credit of unearned deeds. It is with regret we remember that an historian last year thus betrayed the honesty with which Sophomores are supposed to be so largely endowed. s All Sophomores are, as the writer remarks, supposed to be endowed with honesty. It is seldom that they betray this quality, however, even in the Blue and Gold. Our historian does right to call attention to last year ' s exception to the rule, though his remark by itself is not quite clear. 32 BLUE AND GOLD 33 Our Freshman year was spent as Freshman years usually are. Recog- nising that some college customs are best when not perpetuated, we overcame our strong desires to cremate " Conic Sections, " and continued in a course befitting a well-ordered and rational class. Our historian, with a noble desire to do away with the prosaic qualities which usually characterize class histories, clothed his sentences in metric rhyme. But he made a mistake in administering such a large quantity all at one time. A practically inclined editor and a critical class failed to appreciate his effort, and in consequence the present historian is subjected to restric- tions under which one less docile would rebel. During the past year there have been no startling events to record. Monthly essays, occasional glee clubs and semi-annual " rushes " have been the principal diversions enjoyed. The spirit of reform which enters so freely into the actions of Eighty-six, led our class to attempt the sub- stitution of something more consistent with the advanced state of civili- zation, for the scrimmage which annually disgraces the campus. But the smallness of our numbers left it not in our power to dictate, and conse- quently the advent of a much needed reform was postponed. The Sophomores, however, gallantly sustained their reputation in the contest that followed; and though opposed by three times their number, they soon captured the Freshmen ' s battle-flag and victoriously withdrew. With the laudable desire of increasing the interest manifested in base-ball, and adding to the appearance of the players, our nine have provided themselves with neat and serviceable uniforms an example that other classes might well follow; for, though the grotesqueness of the scene might thus be impaired, the beauty of the ordinary undress cos- tume would be much improved. Last Fall, after the term was well under way, the Freshmen did, as Freshmen will persist in doing, bring out a cane for Sophomores to break. It was broken, of course, but not being satisfied they soon after appeared on the campus with a handsome wagon spoke in tow. They gained nothing by it, however, for the skilled Sophomoric eye soon detected that its proportions exceeded the defined limits of a cane, and the Fresh- men were allowed to retain the article. The present Sophomore Class is sufficiently familiar with the appearance of overgrown canes not to have to resort to such expedients as having a broken one photographed. 34 BLUE AND GOLD With one or two exceptions the quiet repose of Berkeley has not suffered disturbance at our hands. It is true that on one occasion we seriously discomposed the wonted equanimity of the worthy official who guards the South Hall steps so assiduously. But we can only hope that he suffered no ill effects from his unusual exertions, and that in the future he will save his breath to cry, " Fire " for something more worthy of the name. Thus far the class has been very successful in sustaining the social relations of its members. The Glee Clubs have promoted a genuine friendship, to which is due the general unanimity which has thus far characterized our actions. Though we are few in numbers, we are strong in our unity; and let us hope that the bonds of class feeling may never be severed by jealous factions or unseemly strife. Let us trust that in the far-oft future, our memories of the past may not be marred by any unpleasant recollections, and that we may always recall with the warm- est affection, the years that were spent in the Class of Eighty-six.

N the 1 5th of August, 1883, before the last rays of the bright sun had ceased to grace the classic hills of Berkeley, and before he sank to rest behind the Golden Gate, a class of seventy-five hr.d advanced boldly into the arena of College life. Trusting in unity and virtue, we came to climb the rugged pathway to knowledge, with the firm resolve to battle manfully for our rights and to yield to no oppression. ' Gosh! 37 3 8 BLUE AND GOLD Much had we heard of the " terrible Sophs, " but little did we fear them, and when we met them lace to face on the Campus, manfully we bore them down. Two successive times charging in solid phalanx, we easily overwhelmed them. After the third rush our opponents hesitated to meet us again, so of our own accord we pushed forward and rushed the mighty Sophomores, " a thing which few Freshmen classes have at- tempted. " At last they deemed it advisable to withdraw their shattered forces and we, forming in triumphal procession, brought terror to their failing hearts by our songs of victory, f Nor when we met the Sophomores again, did we lose the reputation thus gained. Twice in one day did we foil all their efforts to destroy the fragile cane, and at last, bruised and battered, the no longer jolly Soph- omores retired to the friendly shelter of North Hall, fully convinced of the superiority of the only class which has ever successfully faced its op- ponents with nothing but a bamboo twig. The advent of ' 87 may be said to have revived the dying athletic spirit of the College. We have shown unusual interest in gymnastics and the hitherto dormant dumb-bells bear witness to our powers. In the base- ball diamond we have suffered but one defeat, and on Field Day bore off more than our share of medals. Nor in sociability have we been back- ward. Much interest has been shown in our Glee Clubs, where we, our fair co-eds leading us, make the walls resound with the old college airs. While marching up the hill toward knowledge we lost one comrade, who, in his eager desire for the class-cup, was caught in the matrimonial net while Jostlirf with Cupid. Unscathed we passed the dread December exes and the terrible con- dition fiend disturbs the slumbers of but few of us. ' 87 has always acted consistently and we may truly say that while we have ever evinced praiseworthy spirit in whatever we deemed should be upheld, we have never failed to discountenance whatever would reflect to our dishonor. Soon our first year will be ended and we shall don the mortar-board. Proud of the record we have gained in the past, we shall endeavor to maintain it in the future, and as jolly Sophomores shall try to fill the verdant ' 88er with a true sense of our dignities. fBoom-ti-ra-da! BLUE AND GOLD 39 The painful duty alone remains of recording the one severe and bitter pang that we have experienced. Clifford A. Davis, after a brief illness, was taken from the class, the University and his friends, in the begin- ning of his college course and on the threshold of his career in life, by the " Fell Destroyer, whose cold and sapless hand waves o ' er the world and beckons all away. " He was a true gentleman, one who, by his steady and upright course, by his manliness, integrity and geniality won the hearts of all he met; and when we followed him to his last resting-place we ftlt that a void had been made in our midst which would not soon be filled.

As may be seen from the list of mem- bers, we have our usual complement of the flower of the warlike and gentle sexes. Most of them have realized the great necessity, in the absence of a regular chair of elocution and oratory, of participating in our rhetorical exercises ; and, as a qatural result, our meetings have been unusually in- teresting. We have among us nearly all the best musicians of the University, and their artistically executed selections have been most agreeable features of our entertainments. The program, during the year past, has been made upas follows: Music, Oration, Essay, Declamation and Debate, occasionally followed by the singing of college songs and by dancing. It will be seen that our exercises, if kept up enthusiastically, are sources not only of pleasure, but of a certain mental training which cannot be had elsewhere at this University. In order that the objects of the Society may be fully realized, it is to be hoped that our ranks may be kept filled with students, who will make 70 BLUE AND GOLD use of their opportunities who will, with earnestness of spirit, carry on these exercises of self-culture combined as they are with pleasure. Let the upper classmen increase their interest in an undertaking of such benefit, and let newly arrived students make it one of their first cares to take up with a steadfastness of purpose the work of self improvement which for twenty-three years has been carried on within the halls of the Durant Rhetorical Society.

VARIEL, ,LONG with the rest of the College world, the Neolsean Literary Society has had a year of decided advance. The Neolaeans have profited and amused themselves and their audiences in about the same way as during the preceding eleven years. One departure from the old rut, however, deserves recording. During the first term of this year President Reid and several of the Professors lectured before the Society at alternate meetings. Their lectures were thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by as many as the hall could hold. The programs have for twelve years been on one narrow plane. But the Society is now rousing itself to deal actively with the problem, how to introduce variety. The debates ought, without doubt, to live, but the rest of the usual program is skillfully adapted to overcrowd the student already pushed with work of exactly the same character. Perhaps next year we shall be able to record the successful accomplishment of some new plan. 72 BLUE AND GOLD 73 OFFICER3, D. L. LEZINSKY, PRESIDENT. A. G. EELLS, VICE-PRESIDENT. E. W.

S-HUTTH, UNIVR8ITY STUDENTS, This Society was founded March 15, 1878. The objects of the Society are: First The promotion of religion and morality among the students. Second The consideration of religion in connection with history, philosophy and science. Meetings are held on Wednesday afternoons, and are occupied in studying some selected passages of Scripture. Occasionally the Society- has a lecture from some minister or prominent man. The last year has not been as prosperous as the preceding ones, and the meetings have not been held regularly ; but the Society hopes for better times in the future. H. E. MILLER, ' 85, PRESIDENT. W. A. BEATTY, ' 84, SECRETARY. 74 POUTICAU SCINC CUUa iHE routine work of the regular University course is of itself valua- ble, and, indeed, necessary in a college course ; but from its very nature the work in its general effect is narrowing ; consequently, oppor- tunities for original research and for a less restricted field of labor, where inclinations can be followed more or less completely, are valued by every true student, and such, we think, present themselves in this organi- zation. The Society was formed two years ago at the suggestion of Pro- fessor Moses, and to him, too, is due its undoubted success. Meetings are held every two weeks. Those who founded the society desired the chief characteristic of these meetings to be literary and not social ; but the social has been unconsciously for the past year one of the features of the meetings. In both its aspects, the literary and social, the Club is indebted, in no small degree, to Professor and Mrs. Moses, whose kindness has furnished a place for meetings, and whose assist- ance in every way has been invaluable. Owing to the Senior Class being small this year, the privilege of mem- bership has been extended to Juniors. The Club has now a membership of thirty-seven. In the following list of subjects, discussed during the past year, it will be seen that there has been a wider range of discussion than heretofore. First " Federalism in Canada. " Second " Foreign Policy of the United States. " Third " Public Debts. " Fourth " Government of Scandinavia. " Fifth " Comparative Failure in the French Methods of Colonization. " Sixth " The Jesuits in Paraguay. " Seventh " Swiss Confederation. " Eighth " The East India Company. " Ninth " Phases of Local Government. " Tenth " Land Tenure in Great Britain. " 75 UONGFUUOW MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION, iHE desire to provide new and even larger opportunities for the increase of literary culture, and at the same time to aid in the development of social life within the limits of an organization including both University students and towYi residents, has been at least partially realized in the formation of the Longfellow Memorial Association. In April, 1883, a score or more of persons, nearly all of whom were connected with the University, met at the residence of C. T. H. Palmer, and an organization was formed which has since increased its member- ship to ninety, nearly one half of these being citizens of Berkeley. The meetings of this Association are held monthly at the residences of the Berkeley members. The program consists of music, tableaux, poems, and the reading and discussion of a paper. The following topics have been considered : First " Is Longfellow a Cosmopolitan Poet? " Second " Where Longfellow found his Song. " Third " The Masque of Pandora. " Fourth " Tennyson " Address by Dr. C. D. Barrows. Fifth " The Princess. " Notwithstanding the difficulties which have sometimes presented themselves, the society has been fairly successful in realizing its purposes, and may justly presume, for the future, upon an even greater measu re of prosperity than that hitherto attained.

O|T is interesting to trace the character of a bygone race by means of their customs ; and in no way do we gain so true an idea of this char- acter as by observing how their leisure hours were spent. The period concerned in the present article is known as the barbarous or ante-co-ed epoch, and lasted from the founding of the college until about 1889, A. D., when the final co-ed invasion reduced the savage males to subjec- tion. We are fortunate in possessing several bas reliefs of the sports then current, outlines of which are given here. This represents the then famous temple of Bacchus. For a shekel (in the language of the present period " two bits " ) admission could be ob- tained. The combined effect of Old Judge, Fredericksburg, music and 106 BLUE AND GOLD 107 beauty was shown in the undue hilarity and uncouth enthusiasm of this simple-minded race. This hilarity was always succeeded by mental and physical depression, and an abnormal instinct for reform. These were merely temporary, however. Here we have a poker tournament. The figure at the left is suppos- ed to be the gifted P. Riley, and the other two his disciples. He has just dextrously performed the feat of " swiping the pot. " Notice the benig- nant look of triumph on his face and the awed surprise of the other two. The above represents the lawless clan of Sophs kneeling at the sacred shrine and begging for divine aid, although their prayers, as in this case, were often unavailing. io8 BLUE AND GOLD This is an illustration of another custom of this same tribe. Here they are warming a " Fresh. " This was done that he might fully understand the ups and downs of this cruel world and be resigned to them. How interesting to compare these manners of a by-gone period with those of the present. The temple of Bacchus is a myth of the past; the art of Riley is lost to posterity ; the descendants of those warlike Sophs of old have grown mild and peaceful; the sacred shrine before which they so often knelt in earnest supplication, has fallen into disuse and decay; and the Fresh now walks untaught, with no friendly hand to guide him on to wisdom. Yea, verily, the world is not what it was. AN UNTOUP TAU, Not a Prof was seen, not a wandering tute, As the wine from its storeroom we hurried ; Not a watchman approached, with wary foot, The spot whence we prudently scurried. We nipped it darkly, at dead of night, (In the wet clay our heels set their mark,) By the struggling moonbeam ' s misty light, And we thought it a deuce of a lark. No useless sealing wax held the cork, Nor twine or wire was around it ; We whipped out our knives and went to work, And inferior stuff we found it. Yet many and long were the draughts we quaffed, No grewsome care did we borrow ; But we drank our fill, and silently laughed At the Faculty ' s rage on the morrow. How little the Prex in his peaceful bed, Asleep on his righteous pillow, Knew the Faculty ' s wine had gone to our head For we got rather more than mellow. Darkly they ' ll speak of the spirit that ' s gone, And a cast of our footprints they ' ll take ; But little we ' ll reck, for the boots we had on Will be sunk deep in Berryman ' s Lake. By the time that our seventy bottles were drunk, The cocks crew the coming of light, And we caught just a glimpse of the watchman that slunk After poor Charlie Stewart that night. So, slowly and sadly, we got to our feet From the field of our bust, chill and lone ; We left not a trace to reveal our retreat, And the bottles we smashed on a stone. 109 SOME INSPIRATIONS FROM THE GERMAN CLASS-ROOM, [The originals of the two following pictures were drawn by Mr. George Gumming, ' 81, and are the property of Professor Putzker, who has allowed them to be copied for the BLUE AND GOLD. We take this opportunity of thanking the Professor for his kindness in enabling us thus to place them for the students ' enjoyment.] EDS. Lst- ' T ' s Z EVJTHQLD Characteristic Hecitations 112 CHMICAU PHILOSOPHY, PROMPTLY on the ringing of the four o ' clock bell, Miss Shaw and Miss Dibble shuffle into the lecture room, and plump into their seats. A quarter of an hour later Dunn and Braverman appear. Finding the coast clear they step up to the counter and soon become absorbed in matching. The young ladies are immediately interested, and become intensely excited in watching the game. Five minutes later Heller and Badger enter, and finding affairs taking their usual course, join the players. Badger ' Let ' s shake and that ' ll let us all in. Got the dice, Braver- man ? " The dice are produced. Braverman " All up? Here goes. Fives and aces. Ace full, by golly ! Takes the pot, I ' ll bet. " Badger, however, proves winner. They are just about to shake again when Miller enters hurriedly and announces the coming of the Professor. In the general confusion which ensues, Braverman swipes the pot, leav- ing Dunn with his four sixes amazingly in the cold. All scramble into their seats. The Professor enters, with two Brown Leghorn eggs in one hand and a Spangled Hamburg in the other. He places them carefully on the counter before him, apologizes for being late, and accepts the book subserviently proffered by Miller. Professor " What temperature is necessary for hatching? eh, ex- cuse me. I mean, where does the lesson begin to-day. Badger, can you tell us ? " " 3 H4 BLUE AND GOLD Badger (very knowingly) " I think we went through the problems on Stoichiometry last time, and started in on Thermo-Chemistry. I ' m not quite sure. " " Well, let ' s commence with the problems in Thermo-Chemistry. Heller, read the first, if you please. " Heller reads the problem through. On finishing, he looks up and dis- covers the Professor in deep thought. The entrance of Rothganger, at 4:30, interrupts his meditations. " Now the Halstead Incubator no. Well, what ' s the first thing to do? " Heller " Well, I haven ' t worked out the problems for to-day. " Braverman, when questioned, pleads lack of time, and the rest of the class successively give up. " Well, let ' s go back for a moment to elementary Chemistry. Mr. Miller, what is the effect of Soda on Putty? " Miller (promptly) " It makes it soft. " " Right. Well, now, let ' s look at this problem. Let ' s see. First, we multiply 18.67 by 4, don ' t we? " The class maintains a respectful silence, which the Professor inter- prets as consent, and he goes on thoughtfully. " Then we divide by let ' s see. Well, never mind. I ' ll bring that in next time all worked out on a piece of paper. I have a little busi- ness to attend to, so I ' ll excuse the class for to-day. You may take the rest of the problems next time. " He picks up the eggs and makes a bee-line for the incubator. The young ladies wake up the rest of the class, and they all depart. HISTORY, the last tone of the bel1 the door rattles the hopeful ex- pression fades from the faces of the co-eds, and with a look of weariness the Professor enters and throws himself gracefully at the desk. As his name is called, each man stops studying long enough to respond- One Club House co-ed says " coming " for the remaining five, who are out in the hall struggling with their overshoes. The Professor looks up in surprise as Miss Shearer breaks her record ; and is even more aston- ished as Putnam makes his appearance before the roll is finished. As his eye roves over the room singling out the first victim, one by one those in the front row reluctantly close their books. His glance finally settles on Miss Congdon ' s statuesque form. " Miss Congdon, " says the Professor, ' ' what does the text mean when it speaks of the Ecclesiastical Reservation? " " Ith a plaith where they thend the prieth to; thomwhere (hesitatingly) in Germany, I think. " " Is that your idea oHt, Miss McLean? " Miss McLean looks disturbed, but keeps silence and flunks gracefully. The Professor seems discouraged, but takes a fresh start. " Mr. Stone, what was the significance of the Golden Bull? " Stone makes a desperate attempt to grasp the situation. " Well, eh, eh, th-that-a, that was the place where they elected three prelates. There were-a some princes, some princes came in there too. Th-the King of Bohemia, eh " Professor, interrupting: " Well is that quite clear, Miss Campbell? " Miss Campbell, promptly: " I don ' t know. " Stone wipes his brow and resumes his usual intelligent look. " 5 BLUE AND GOLD " What do you think about that, Mr. Wakefield? " " Well, I dont believe I quite grasp your meaning. If I understood the question rightly I was thinking that you would scarcely call it signifi- cance. However, that is merely theoretical on my part. I would not like to be at all positive in the matter. " The Professor awaits the end with resignation, and giving Wakefield up, turns with an expectant look to the intelligent corner of the class. " Mr. Howard, what important territory did France acquire about this time? " Howard, looking around to see that all are duly attentive: " Well, er, Mary, Queen of Scots the Duke of Guise obtained her hand for the Dauphin, and thus France gained great influence. " " But you ' d hardly call her hand a territorial acquistion, would you? " McAllister, sotto voce: " Not unless it was like Rothganger ' s. " Class smiles, and Howard takes advantage of the interval to restore his lower jaw to its natural position. At this juncture Miss Treat strides across the room, opens two win- dows, and after unsuccessfully struggling with the third, glances appeal- ingly at Putnam, who immediately goes to the rescue. The shivering class looks reproaches, but it ' s no use; and Miss Treat assumes that de- fiant expression of hers which forbids all interference. When order is once more restored in the room the Professor tries again. " Miss Anderson, what led to the death of Gustavus Adolphus? " Miss Anderson, in her silvery tones: " Why, he was ki-illed. " " No doubt. But what were the circumstances? " Miss Anderson, with hesitation; " O, I dont think I remember tha-at " Professor: " Ugh! Well how was that, Miss Levy? " Miss Levy draws a lon breath and the class take out their watches. " Well Gustavus, he collected a large army and leaving the government of Sweden in the hands of a Council, sailed over to Germany and marched down to Bohemia, and after meeting with a great many successes, " (gasping) " and having divided his army, then he was attacked near Lutzen by the enemy and there was a great battle, " (another gasp) " and Gustavus encouraged his men by his bravery, but the enemy had the largest forces, and, and, " (gasping) BLUE AND GOLD Here the Professor takes advantage of a momentary pause for breath to remark " Yes, that ' s about it. " Miss Levy takes the hint. Dunn re- places his watch, remarking sotto voce to Feusier : " Only ten minutes ! Gosh ! she didn ' t get far to-day. " The class again breathes freely. " What, Mr. Rothganger, " resumes the Professor, " seems to have been the general tendency in religious matters during the Reformation? " Rothganger ' s classic visage becomes wreathed in smiles as he looks up at the Professor and says: " That ' s all the further I got to-day ' " Well, Mr. McAllister, can you enlighten us on this point? " McAllister, after a moment ' s reflection : " Th-they seem to have had broader views, and, and, " (in an undertone to Hayne, " go on, go on! " ,) after a moment ' s pause ; " O yes, they wanted to kill the Pope and make a Universal Republic. " ( " For Heaven ' s sake, Hayne, speak louder. " ) " Well not exactly that, was it? " McAllister, hastily: " Well no, no, I didn ' t mean just that. I " Here Putnam, who has been drinking in the remarks with all three ears wide open, suddenly discovers that he has an idea formulated and ready for communication to the class. Accordingly he straightens up, takes the string of his glasses from between his teeth, and looks intelli- gent. The class understand the symptoms. McAllister readily resigns his interesting discussion and the Professor nods approval to Putnam. " I would like to go back to that first question about the Ecclesiastical Reservation. It was not a piece of land set aside, at all, was it? " " Well will you explain that to us, Mr. Putnam? " This is Putnam ' s opportunity, and he improves it. A discussion arises between him and the Professor, which grows more and more exciting and is only brought to an end by the bell. " Well, " says the Professor, " that will do. There are some members of the class who need to pay more careful attention to these recitations. The young ladies, in particular, had better square their accounts with the social world. You may read twenty pages more for to-morrow. " The majority of the class depart. Putnam remains to continue the discussion. GERMAN, " C UR lesson to-day begins vere ? O yes, yes ! Now I remember. Miss F,oolton, vill you begin. Read de Cherman. In a loud and distinct voice, blease ? I can not talk much to-day. I haf four straight hours. Four straight hours !

" Miss Fulton reads a little farther. " O, Miss Foolton, Miss Foolton, vy vill you make such mistakes ? Ooee, ooee, mit de elegant bronunciation. Fur! Say it dat vay. " Miss Fulton makes a desperate attempt. " No-o-o, no! Place de lips as I do. You cannot? Veil, veil. If I were a student I vould be so ambitious to learn. You try hard, do you not, Miss Foolton ?

Now you did not know I was not a Cherman, did you ? But I am not, I am a Bohemian. Now, Mr. Varren, vy haf you dat look of surprise? Be intuitive. Be intuitive. Du haf some intelligence aboud you. " The recitation proceeds smoothly for the next few minutes. Suddenly the Professor looks up savagely. " I vish dat all dalking may cease. Dere are two young ladies in dis glass I vill not look at dem whose conversation annoys me creatly. If it is not stopped I shall request that de next time dey gum to dis class dey shust stay avay. It is not right! It is not fair ! But let us go on. Number next, blease read. Miss Gibs. " Miss Gibbons reads. " Dot is berfect. You read much outside Cherman ? Yes, dat is goot. I like dat.

Now Miss Treat, vy haf you dat smile on your face ? I am not shoking. I am not in fun. Be in an attitude of great earnestness, I beg of you. " The Professor reads. " Dere ! Dat is de vay. O, dey make my blood boil. But you, you can not abbreciate dem. You haf not de true poetic spirit. You do not understand it? Yell, veil. Shust let me reason mit you for a mo- ment.

But Goethe wrote mit a lofty ideal in view. Derefore but let us go on. Mr. Tracy, setzen sie fort, blease. " Tracy translates three words, and says he was unable to get the rest. " Dat is a good vay.

A FACUUTY MATING, OJT was a warm, lazy day in Spring, when the Faculty came together, once upon a time, for the transaction of business. It was the season when the student ponders longest before leaving the North Hall steps and his cigarette for the gloomy recitation room; when the sportive Freshman approaches nearest to the limit of his friskiness ; and when mosquitoes, caterpillars and co-eds come out in their fullest conspicuous- ness. In the springtime, even the old horses will kick up their heels like colts ; and though no one would show so little respect for the Faculty as to suggest the resemblance of its venerable members to colts, still they form no exception to the rule. Business was slack. There was only fifteen petitions, ranging from the Freshman who wanted to take four hours " extra lab, ' - ' to the Senior who would like to substitute two hours French for the term in place of three years conditions in Latin, all of which they refused in a bunch. There were seven charges of " high old drunks " which they prudently passed over in deference to the Board of Regents, that learned body being noto- riously touchy on the inalienable rights of man. The Recorder had fallen asleep ; and in the existing state of circumstances there seemed nothing left but to adjourn. 126 BLUE AND GOLD At this point, the Little Joker who is known to be irrepressible when once he gets a good start, took the floor and arranged his collar for a speech. " May it please this honorable body, " he said, " in default of further business, I propose that we investigate the birth ot Bishop Berkeley. His second centennial has just been celebrated, but so long as I have been connected with the educational pursuit of the nation " evident delight here noted on the faces of the English department and the phrase is at once taken down " I never saw one hundred and ninety-nine years make two centuries. " This being a Professorial joke, the courtesy of the Faculty brought forth the customary smile, except from the Prex, who rose to his feet humbly and proceeded to explain. " I ah knew, of course, that ah there might at some time have been eh a dispute as to eh the exact date. But I saw no harm in eh Eighty-four I mean the year, " he added hastily, observing an alarmed look on the faces of the Faculty. " What authority did you have for that date? " inquired the cross-ex- aminer. " I found it in the dictionary, " faltered the Prex. The Faculty roared. " Dictionaries are very much out of date, " exclaimed the cross-ex- aminor when he could catch his breath again. There was a general frown at the pun, and from one or two quarters were heard suggestions to stand the perpetrator on his head. The cross- examiner saved his bacon by promptly begging pardon, and urged the heat of the debate as his excuse. This sudden fall of a prominent member of the opposition, demoralized his side to such an extent that the Prex thought it a most favorable opportunity to settle the Little Joker once for all. " What authority have you, Sir, " he said sternly, " for your statement? ' ' The Little Joker never quailed " I can bring forward a co-ed who was present at the time. " The Prex wilted, and the Eighty-four party seemed crushed. " Bring in your witness, " said the Prex in awe-struck voice. The Judge, in spite of his earnest protests, was sent to find her, and the Faculty took a short recess. The Judge soon returned empty-handed . BLUE AND GOLD 127 She had gone home. At this the Prex recovered his usual equanimity and sardonically asked the Little Joker for his other authorities. For a few minutes the air was thick with an Act of Parlament, the names of dictionaries, encyclopedias and biographies, until the form of the Moderator rose out of the din. " Gentlemen, " he said, when he had obtained a hearing, " in spite of the old proverb, I do not believe we can have too much of a good thing. Hence, if one bi-centenary celebration of the Bishop is good, two cele- brations will be just twice as good. We have already held one for this year. Then let us hold a second one next year, and show all the more that we respect his memory. " As it was close on dinner time, this was thought a most excellent plan for settling the difficulty. And, it being entered on the minutes as the sense of the Faculty, the meeting adjourned. ' ' While I play the good husband at home, Burning of the Shrew. My son spends all at the I niversity.

And then why should they celebrate this day of March, And not that day of August, when I took the chair? O, you better believe, I ' ll take some of the starch From out of these Seniors. O, I ' ll make them care For me, for I ' m President, William Treed, President; And am the ruler of this grand affair. BLUE AND GOLD 131 He gets up and walks excitedly up and down the room several times. A knock at the door interrupts his meditation. HUGGER enters. Hugger Good morning, sir. I came to see What you, as head of the Facultee, Would like to give to help defray The expense of our next Charter Day. The students all have done their part, With open purse and willing heart, To keep up the custom handed down By our predecessors in Berkeley town. As I have been thought the one most fit The Faculty members all to hit For money to help the thing along, (Metaphorically speaking, to " hit them strong, " ) I come to you, sir, first of all, For I know that you will start the ball A-rolling with a handsome sum, As you always do when students come To ask you for subscriptions. Prex Well, well, sir, I am pleased to hear That students feel they have one near In me, the President, whose will Is not to do them harm or ill, Is not to bully like J. C. Larke, But rather, as you yourself remark, To help them along as much as I can As I always have, since I began To rule this institution. But what is this you have to say Ot money you want for Charter Day ? Of course you ' re right to come to me, And tell the students I ' m pleased to see Their respect for generosity. And yet, sir, though I wish them well, Some private reasons still compel 132 BLUE AND GOLD A firm refusal, on my part, By any sum at all to start This ball a-rolling. For I ' m not Inclined to witness such a lot Of public days in Berkeley. He pauses for a moment and then goes on more excitedly. I tried last Autumn to prevent From Eighty-five their Junior Ex. But they didn ' t seem to care a cent For me, their worthy, mighty Prex. But I ' ll get even with them yet; And as for Eighty-four, I don ' t help them out, sir, you bet. Good morning. There ' s the door. Hugger leaves somewhat hurriedly. Prex (in soliloquy}. I don ' t intend a cent to spend In such a worthless cause, To give away my hard-earned pay For keeping college laws. And then again, these Senior men Have always been to me A cause of double care and trouble, A source of enmity. For Charter Day what though it may The college birth-day be ? It but brings back the reign of Jack, And Gilman, Daniel C. I must not let the boys forget The present in the past. For then they praise those former days And sigh they did not last. BLUE AND GOLD 133 But I must keep these reasons deep, Instead invent some more. Must find some other excuse to smother This show by Eighty-four. So first let ' s see I ' ll say that we, (The Faculty meaning thus) Of course are willing to pay our shilling, Fo r money ' s naught to us. But we have thought, as good men ought, How students ' means are frail ; And how immense is the expense Which such displays entail. And then the views of those they choose To speak on public days, Are always trite, and what they write Is hardly worthy praise. The college, too, from what they do, Receives no new renown ; For those that come are merely some That live in Berkeley town. But most of all, none leave the hall When speeches bad are through, For all there stop to see the hop; And others come then, too. These reasons, then, I ' ll give them when They come to ask me why I will not pay towards Charter Day, Nor invitations buy. 34 BLUE AND GOLD And by my show I ' ll let them know Their Day I do not heed ; And spoil their fame as sure as my name Is William Treed. Curtain falls. ACT II. SCENE : President ' s Office. Prex My gracious, what a quantity of business I do have ! If I had known how much there was to do over here when I was offered the position of President, I don ' t believe I would have taken it. And then the boys are so boisterous. They will persist in playing rush and ball right in the yard. As for the girls, it was only the other day that I told a lady I thought I would have the University in a few years so that she could send her daughter here with perfect propriety. But let me see. I must get those rules of conduct ready for publication the very next thing I do. (Some one knocks!) O dear! Who can that be ? Come. Enter George Judge with the mail. George Judge Aha ! Mr. President, good morning. Fine morning sir. Prex Good morning, George. A fine day, no doubt ; but I have no time to enjoy it. George Judge No, no, I suppose not. Well, sir, you see that is one of the difficulties of being a great man. I was a great man myself once, so I know how it is. Yours, sir, is no ordinary mind. You belong to the mental aristocracy. By the way, did you ever read Mill on the Constitutionality of Injustice ? That man has some ideas worth perus- ing. Prex No, I never have. I find very little time to read. O, my graci- ous, what a lot of mail ! I declare, I never shall get through it all. Good morning, George. Exit George Judge. SLUE AND GOLD 135 When the Prex is left to himself he begins to open one letter after another, reading them through and throwing them down with a sigh of weariness. At last his eye lights upon the " Occident. " He takes it up and tears open the wrapper eagerly. Aha ! Here is the Occident. I ' m well aware why it is sent To me, for that big Senior Beat, Who runs the sickly little sheet, Came up the other day to see (As he said) what was wrong with me ; Why I refused a cent to pay To help along their Charter Day ; And what I thought I was about When I fired Charlie Hugger out. O he can bulldoze pretty well, As any Faculty man can tell Who ' s ever had him in his class When on the Ex. he ' s failed to pass. But he don ' t get away with me For who can in this great U. C.? And when I ' d talked a little while In my persuasive, fluent style, Had given him all the reasons straight Just why I did not calculate To see this Senior show take place, He went away with smiling face. And I am positive I quite Convinced the fellow I am right, And that in here he ' ll take my part, And Charter Day disparage. He opens the paper and reads. As he proceeds his face grows pale and his hands twitch nervously. BLUE AND GOLD Why here the rascal ' s dared to take My arguments up one by one ; Discuss them, and remarks to make Against them. O, the son-of-a-gun ! Confound this boy, he ' s like them all. Such impudence I never saw. To think this Beat could have the gall To dare to doubt my word is law. But soft ! I see ' midst the debris Of paper-wraps and envelopes, The Berkeleyan, sent to me For some good reason, too. I ' ve hopes The opportunity it will seize To take my side and say I ' m right. For naught does more these papers please Than with each other to pick a fight. Let ' s see. Here ' s first an essay long; Three pages of good paper spoiled, With matter not to speak too strong Down from encyclopedias boiled. No, I ' m too tired to tackle that, And then, besides, it looks too deep. But here ! though Olla ' s jokes are flat, They will not let me go to sleep. And yet for essay thoughts sublime, Or college jokes, I have no time. I took the paper up to see What the chief-ed has to say of me; I ' ll read his wisdom through. For he ' s another smart young chap, And he does well to fill a gap When editors are few. BLUE AND GOLD 137 He reads for a moment while his hair begins to rise. Suddenly he falls back and the paper drops to the floor. The holy smoke! what shall I do? I wish my college reign were through; For this same paper sits on me, Yea, sitteth everlastingly. I thought it gall for the Occident To publicly declare dissent; But by this I ' m still more surprised, Yea, by it I am paralyzed. He stamps on the floor and calls: Hey, George ! George Judge ! George Judge rushes in. Here, George, quick take this nickel bright, Go tell the Seniors I repent. If that don ' t make the matter right, Tell them I ' ll give another cent. Go tell them I am in the wrong, That after all, I wish to pay This handsome sum to help along The funds for the next Charter Day. Here, take it. O ' tis hard to part With what is bread and life to me Here, George, support me. Ha! my heart! O God St. Ebbins Faculty! He faints in George Judge ' s arms. Faculty members rush in. Tableau. Curtain falls. BLUE AND GOLD ' 38 ACT III. SCENE i: North Hall Steps. ist Student: Gimme a cigarette. Thanks. Go to the show last night? 2nd Student: What! The Prex ' s show? Not much. Think I ' d en- courage him in breaking up Charter Day by my presence there? Not if I know myself. ist Student: Some pretty good speeches. University police out in full force to keep order. But say, did you hear the joke on the Prex? He celebrated the second centennial of Berkeley ' s birthday a year too soon. 2nd Student: Naw! Get out! ist Student: Fact. Guess he thought nobody ' d notice it, and it came in so handy. Just before Charter Day, you know. But " murder will out. " 2d Student: Pretty good joke. Humph! Going to French this morn- ing? ist Student: Dunno. Let ' s toss up for it. Heads we cut, tails we stay away. Is it a go? 2nd Student: Toss her up. ist Student: Well it ' s tails. I never like to go back on the decision of money. Come, let ' s hit Bachman ' s. Exeunt. Scene 2: Presidents office. President and George Judge. Prex : Now tell me quickly all that passed. And il you think you ' ve quelled the fight. Do they know I repent at last, And that I will admit they ' re right? George Judge: Well, Mr. President, you see, They have a great respect for me; There ' s not a student has a grudge Against the man they call " the judge. " And so when I had told the boys How their displeasure much annoys Your Honor, and how you conclude BLUE AND GOLD i 39 To change your hostile attitude To Charter Day, and send by me Five cents, with generosity They not only for their rage repent, But tell me not another cent Is needed to defray the bills, For money all their pocket fills; And that I may at once return The nickel to the Prex. Re hands it to the Prex who takes it eagerly and drops it in his purse. Prex: Now God be praised, I once more feel Its surface round within my purse. What floods of pleasure o ' er me steal When I think matters are no worse. I feared I ne ' er should see it more, My pretty little nickel round. See ! when I drop it to the floor, It makes a pleasant, chinking sound. But go, George, you have played it well. Yes sir, I thank you from my heart. Go now, and to the college bell It ' s merry, joyful tones impart. If you are sure no more they need, They have enough all bills to pay, Go say I hope that they ' ll succeed Financially with Charter Day. And that if they should ever doubt They have enough tor their expense, To call on me, I ' ll help them out, And give them yet my big five cents. 140 BLUE AND GOLD O George, my show last night was grand, The speeches all beyond compare ; And all the great men of the land, St. Ebbins and myself were there. No student crowd can e ' er invent A show that will attract as mine. I ' ve proved to them my good intent And now I ' ll play it with them fine. They are no longer in a rage, I ' ve soothed their ire, I ' ve calmed their wrath And now my feelings to assuage, I ' ll go again on the war-path. But yet this time I ' ll act with care, So that they shall not aught suspect ; And all shall outward seem so fair That nothing ' gainst me shall reflect. I ' ll not go their show to see Or waste my time their trash to hear. But gosh ! one of the Faculty On Charter Day is to appear. 1 can ' t aftord that speech to miss, For with the Prof I ' d favor lose. I ' ll surely have to go to this Whether I do or do not choose. But I won ' t stay when he is through, Nor go until he is to speak. By Jove ! I know just what I ' ll do Nor yet display such mammoth cheek. BLUE AND GOLD 141 I ' ll send my wife to hear it all, And say I did not have the time, That day, to spend within the hall, Although to listen to thoughts sublime. And so I ' ll fix these Seniors yet, And teach them how again they vex Their ruler, for such is, you bet, The man they dare to call " The Prex. " So go then, George, and ring the bell. Make it ring out right heartily. For the time has come when we ' re to tell. Who ' s to be " lord of Barkalee. " Curtain falls. THE SOUTH HALL KINGDOM. CORNELIUS, October ' s days were waning fast, As into Berkeley ' s vale there passed A crank, who bore, in puny fame, The ever-since detested name, Cornelius. His brow was beaming with a grin Exterior fair of what within Proved disappointing, flat and tame. As English Tutor came this same Cornelius. His classes in due time he met ; And hopeful, too, were they as yet Of much substantial gain. Hope vain ! Observe how acted in the main Cornelius. " You cannot pass, " to some he said : " A word misspelled in short has led You into ruin ; such mistake Is grievous, vital, vile. " Thus spake Cornelius. 143 144 BLUE AND GOLD " Here is a theme bound with a string ; The Faculty forbids this thing- Fault is it of such gravity. " So said, with smirking suavity, Cornelius. Continued he, " this comma frail Has not sufficient length of tail ; For this I yet must ' cinch ' one more. " Procedure foolish even for Cornelius. " Above this ' i ' there is no dot; To cross your ' t ' you here forget; Another still must fail, " and smiled, While uttering dictum since reviled, Cornelius. " In themes is careful thought of worth? " A student asked. Reply came forth : " Good thought but little here avails, " If you neglect these small details. " Cornelius!! Two years ' mid such ideas we spend; And then kind Fates slight solace send. With feelings glad and gay we thank The one that frees us from this crank, Cornelius. A NEW METHOD OF EXTERMINATING IRISH DEMOCRATS. ' 45 SEpic poem in iEtoo V-ooks. ' I am the poet that speaketh ; all that I speak have I witnessed ; I can lick the man that says what I speak is a falsehood. " ILIAD, xxv, i. 000K I, Wrath and Revenge declare, O Muse of heroical numbers, Dweller on Grizzly Peak, and twanging the soul-stirring lyre. Black-mantled Night had descended, bringing gloom to the nations, Wrapping a robe of darkness around the temple of Exeus Exeus, king of the mighty gods whom the Juniors worship. Seated within the temple the maidens were busily toiling, Decking with garlands the altar. Soon there arose a commotion As of a hundred horsemen galloping up from a distance, Nearer and nearer approaching till sky and earth are commingled, Filled with the dust that arises and cries that shake the foundations ; So the temple ' s foundations shook with the jar and the outcries. Up from the midst of the crowd of Juniors, Verdants and Maidens Rose the fat form of Alumnus, tossed in dire confusion. Shout upon shout arose in the din as the robe was distended Bearing its heavy burden; then was he freed, but still trembling, Left he the sacred proceedings and cooled himself off in the river. Stepping by chance on a slippery stone he went to the bottom ; Thence he never returned, and his soul departed to Hades. Garlanded now was the altar ; the maidens went out from the temple. Soon arose the voice of the harp, sweet-toned and majestic, Playing Virginia Reel, the divine inspiration of heroes. Then was formed the line of the dance that quickened the heart-beat. Hector arose, the powerful chief of the Junior nation, Then Eneas followed, whose brawny arm, death-dealing, Foremost had been in the strife when Konix the nation invaded, BLUE AND GOLD Filling the land with curses, gloomy and deep as its shadows, Causing dismay and terror to all that saw him advancing, Thoon excepted ; he from the ranks upleaping had captured, Tightly clutching with adamant grasp, the throat of the chieftain, Down to Tartarus hurled him, and saved the nation forever. Ganymede next, beloved of Jove, and Dromeus the giant, Fleeter than any stag or the arrow propelled from the bow-string. Flame-eyed Agrotes followed, the dauntless chief of Miletus. Up from the midst of the crowd of Juniors, Verdants and Maidens Rose the fat form of Alumnus, tossed in dire confusion. Lesser heroes filled up the line and the dance was in motion. Faster the music resounded, and leaping high in the aether, Drunk with joy, Eneas slew for the god three Verdants. Suddenly all was still; the dancers came from their places, Crowded around the altar, and heard that the auspices failed them. Mute they stood, but calm of aspect Hector addressed them : " Heroes of battles, why do ye stand like terrified cattle, Biding the death-stroke ? Know ye not that the arm of your chieftain Wards off danger and holds in subjection the insolent foeman ? None will dare to profane the hallowed temple of Exeus ; Hence to your homes and leave me alone to stay by the altar. " Then rose Dromeus, majestic in form and gloomy in feature, Spurned of woman ; rough of speech, but wise in the council. BLUE AND GOLD " Chief unsurpassed, O Hector, sprung from the race of immortals, Oft have I seen the outcome of fancied security dire. Take my advice and gather around thee the best of thy warriors. " Then bold Hector : " Speak to the earth-born cowards, O Dromeus ; Let them gather for safety and cringe at the foot of their leader. What I have spoken I stand by ; depart ye now to your slumber. " Speechless the heroes departed, and darkness reigned in the temple. Noble Hector, the powerful chief of the Junior nation, Heavy with sleep, lay down, with faithful Ganymede near him. Then was formed the line of the dance that quickened the heart-beat. Long had they slept, but Ganymede started with horror. " Hades, Hector, I have seen a dream, marrow-freezing. P iries swarmed in the temple and hurled to earth the high altar. " Foolish boy, " then Hector, awakened, but heavy with slumber; " Greatly I fear, too much of the festal cake hast thou eaten; Turn again on thy right side and let me slumber in quiet. " Ganymede slept and woke not again till a hideous uproar, Rising afar on the night and striking the star-dimpled heaven, Burst on his ears and shook the mighty temple ' s foundations, BLUE AND GOLD ' 5 Hector sprang to his feet and caught up his ponderous war-club; " Make haste, Ganymede, bar the door with a massive oak-beam; For, before gods and men, I swear to defend the temple, Breaking impious skulls. " Thus spoke the powerful Hector. Ganymede ran and barred the door with a massive oak-beam; Then a yell arose outside and the impious Sophos Broke the windows, crashing them in, and burst into the temple. Hector and Ganymede rushed to meet them, uplifting their war-clubs, Once the enemy reeled, hurled back by the weapon of Hector, Sallying forth again they fought at the altar of Exeus. Suddenly Hector, felled by a cruel blow, dropped senseless. Darkness came over his eyes and the soul went out from the body. He from the ranks upleaping had captured, Tightly clutching with adamant grasp, the throat of the chieftain , Down to Tartarus hurled him. Wildly the heaven-defying exulted and taking the hero Thrice they dragged him around the walls; then stripping the altar, Tore from the wall the banner the maidens had skillfully woven, Toiling with painful zeal; then Thersites, holding the banner, Flat-nosed, bandy-legged, speaking rashly words without meaning, Shouted in foolish derision: " O Ganymede, where is your god now? Vainly will you attempt, we unwilling, your god ' s celebration. " Having spoken such impious words he paused and departed . Darkness reigned in the temple. Prostrate before the altar, ' 52 BLUE AND GOLD Noble Hector, the powerful chief of the Junior nation, Lay majestic in death; and Ganymede kneeling beside him Wept with a breaking heart. " O sprung from the race of immortals, Hector limbed like Hercules, great-souled, lion-visaged, Gone with the earth-born cowards untimely to direful Hades, Ne ' er shall I see thy waving plume in the front of the battle. Ah me! ah me ! Ai ! Ai ! " Loud and long he lamented. BOOK II, Hector ' s soul was roaming, dim and spectral in Hades, Gloomy and wrathful, knowing a cruel wrong. This seeing, Exeus, king of the mighty gods whom the Juniors worship, Clothed it in its mortal clay and Hector opened his eyelids. Long he gazed at faithful Ganymede, loud lamenting, Then he spake, and astonished, Ganymede paused and listened. " What I saw, a shade and roaming in shadowy Hades, If I unfolded now would still thy heart with horror. Wrathful yet is my soul, new-clothed in its mortal vestment. We must punish the impious Sophos ere Dawn advances Streaking with white the East. O Ganymede, hasten, nor pause thou. Call the warriors hither, telling them what has happened. Here will we plan revenge and deeds becoming to heroes. " Ganymede ran and called the Junior warriors together, Waking yEneas first, the tall and graceful in figure, Goddess-born and thoughtful. Then he wakened Agenor, Cheerful and quick to contrive. Then going down to the Alpha, Woke he brave Alcathous who swiftly in winged sandals Followed him back. And Helenus, swift as Mars, and strong-armed Called he, and Asius, brother of Helenus, fierce as a lion. Imbrius lastly, rash of speech but valiant in battle. As, on the rock-bound coast the swelling and limitless billows Beat with deafening roar and wake the resounding echoes, So the warriors surged on, pouring into the temple. Bearing the bloody signs on his face of the terrible conflict, Noble Hector, fierce as a flame, then rose and addressed them: " Friends and heroes of battles, the impious Sophos have entered, BLUE AND GOLD 153 Stripping the altar and bearing off the Junior standard, Arm we now for revenge and plan how the foe may be punished. " Uproar began, all striving to speak, but brave Alcathous, Rose and silenced the clamor: " O sprung from the race of immortals, Hector, who is the impious man that has stolen the standard? " Ganymede spake : " Thersites stole the Junior standard, Tearing it down from the wall and shouting in foolish derision. " Then said brave Alcathous : " Hard to believe is the story ; Dog-faced Thersites speaks wishing only to move men to laughter, Having the heart of a deer. But if this one now has the standard, Then rose Dromeus, majestic in form and gloomy in feature. Let us go at once and punish the impious scoundrel. " Up sprung Asius, livid with hate and righteous anger. " Kill him rather. The scoundrel must die. But death is too easy. O that a hundred torments lay in my palm at this moment Planned for Thersites, knock-kneed, lantern-jawed, spider- legged. Let me get my fingers into his impious eyeballs. " But yEneas and Imbrius, speaking to Asius, calmed him. Then rose Agenor, boiling with wrath : " O brave Alcathous, Lead us on to Thersites ' tent and rescue the standard ; While we are counselling here the night advances and morning Soon will whiten the East. " The warriors eager for action, Caught up their weapons, and brave Alcathous, seizing a war-club, ' 54 BLUE AND GOLD Bade farewell to Hector and led them eagerly onward. Up the bank of the river that flows by the temple of Exeus, Marched the Junior heroes, and silence reigned, for none spoke. Not a sound was heard, save the pebbly tones of the current Rushing down from the hills, and the steady tramp of the heroes. As the full-faced moon moves half-hid under the dark clouds, Nearing the edge of the world and illuming the sky with her brilliance Or as a winter rain-cloud, swollen to bursting with water, Moves majestic and solemn, but swiftly over the heavens, So the warriers marched with gloomy hearts and wrathful, Soon to Thersites ' tent they came, arid silent they broke in. Seizing the coward they bound his hands with a thong behind him; Then they bandaged his eyes and hurled his body headlong. " Ah me! ah me! Ai! Ai! " Loud and long he lamented. Trembling with fear he lay like a worm on the earth extended; Then said Asius: " Rise, thou scoundrel, and put on thy tunic. " . Opened the wretch his mouth and spake in tremulous accents; " Kill me not, ye heroes, but spare my innocent body; Ransom indeed shall ye have, a store of gold and of silver. " Asius interrupted him: " Put on thy tunic, thou coward, Or, by the gods, I ' ll slay thy carcass as food for the buzzards. " Then said Thersites: " Spare me Asius, for I am fast bound; Loosen my bonds and I ' ll promise " Asius, pallid with anger BLUE AND GOLD ' 55 Rushed at him, but vEneas and Imbrius held the hero. Quickly spake brave Alcathoiis, " Talk to me not of ransom, Dog-faced liar and thief but restore the Junior standard; That done, we will consider, whether to spare thy carcass, Or to send thy spiritless soul to shadowy Hades, Leaving thy body, torn by dogs, to rot on the bay-shore, Or to be food for the ravenous buzzards. " Thersites answered, Pouring forth a shower of tears: " O Juniors spare me ! I am not ready to die and dwell in murky Hades, Wandering wretched in gloom; and to lie and rot on the bay-shore, 111 become the soldier, and I would wish it to no one. Take a ramson, ye heroes, or let me die like a hero, Slain on the field of battle, or buried with funeral honors. O ye gods! May I see once more the smoke from the chimneys Rising, of Frisco, my native city, my home, and my parents! " Then said Helenus: " Talk you, coward, of death and of battle? Dare no more to offend my ears with your clamorous whining Lest you die. Come Asius, clothe the knave in his tunic; Cover his head and his shoulders and silence his impudent clamor. " Asius drew the tun ic over Thersites ' shoulders, Stopping his voice, and said: " Now, impudent coward, be quiet. " Thoughtful Eneas spake: " O heroes, accept ye the ransom, Having made him restore the standard; then cause him to kneel down, Slavish, and beg for freedom. Base and vile would the deed be, We being many and armed, to kill him, bound and defenceless. " Brave Alcathoiis answered: " Well hast thou spoken and wisely; Take the ransom, O Juniors, and spare ye his valueless body. " Willing the warriors agreed and Thersites gave them the ransom, Telling them where might be found the standard. Then loosing the bandage, Wet with Thersites ' weeping, winged words vEneas Spake to the coward: " Thersites, look, you slave, and behold now Men, and gaze with your cowardly eyes on heroes of battles, Sight erewhile unseen to you. Down on your knees vile sneak-thief, Beg for freedom of those who stand here, your generous captors. " Quaking, he did as commanded; and Asius, as he departed, SLUE AND GOLD Said to the coward: " If ever again you do as you have done, Tortures exquisite await you. Forget not what I have spoken. " Hearing, his knees knocked under him and his face was distorted, Childish and silly, pallid with fright, and the heroes departed. Once more over the altar new-garlanded hung they the standard. Rosy-fringed Dawn illumed the Eastern heavens, Ushering in the day of the Junior god ' s celebration.

EPILOGUE, E show is over, the curtain is down, the lights are almost out; t,before the audience departs, we throw off the mask and step before them in our true light as editors of the Blue and Gold, to say a few parting words. We wish in particular to thank the Professors of the Faculty for their kindness in aiding us so effectually in making the book a success; for by permitting us to use their photographs as a frontispiece, they have added decidedly to its attractiveness. The idea originated with the editors but was seconded by many of the other students; and we feel sure that those in the University who present copies of the Blue and Gold to their friends outside, can point with pride to the frontispiece and say: These are the Professors of our Faculty. And although several of the Professors may find in the book opportunities for comparison of their photographs with other pictures, we hope no offence will be taken where certainly none has been intended. The frontispiece will be treasured as invaluable long after the other contents of the Blue and Gold have passed from mind and memory. It is with a feeling of the greatest sincerity, therefore, with a feeling of respect and of highest regard that we, in the name not only of the Junior Class, but of the entire body ol students, thank the Professors of the Faculty for allowing their photo- graphs to appear. Eighty-five in presenting another copy of the Blue and Gold to the college world, does so with a complete realization of its shortcomings and its faults. The high standard of excellence set by Eighty-three and Eighty-four, we have endeavored not to fall below. And however it may be received, we put it forth with the satisfaction of having done our best to revive in our University the old spirit of enthusiasm which is so rapid- ly dying out. 172 J73 Students are requested to confine tfjeir patronage to in ana lU CO. 119 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, Invite public attention to the finest and best selected stock of Novelties in Watches, Diamonds, Jeielery, Silver- ware and French Clocks ever Exhibited here.

As each spool number should stand for different yarn number, the series from No. 8 to 200 should represent an accurately graduated scale. Consumers, appreciating the importance of this fact, know that they have in this standard thread the most truthful series of numbers from which to make their own selection of size and strength, without regard to compet- itive numbers. Owners of Sewing Machines have discovered that their OWN GOOD JUDGMENT is the BEST guide to a proper selection of spool cotton. Staple colors, as well as fashionable colors of the most delicate hues, kept constantly in stock, and special shades dyed at short notice. For Sale by all Dealers in Dry Goods. 204. R. ROEMER C.
