I HE BLUE AND GOLD of the Century Class has had one ideal: to stand as a souvenir of the year just gone, this year, so remarkable in many memorable events. And it is with pride that we can record, in this twelve-month, the patriotism of four score of our brother College-men, that we can point to the most decisive victories ever won by our athletic teams, that we can note the sure, strong uniting of College interests and College men, and, that we can announce the first successful steps taken in the great architectural plan for our New University. If we have dwelt long on these marked features of the past year, it is because their prominence demands, or should demand, such notice. With these topics to emphasize and the whole, varied field of our College life to represent, we have tried faithfully to chronicle University of California under- graduate life. And our first aim has been to throw over it all a strong local color, to make the volume depict our own College and our own times. The Art Work, while not reaching the mark we had hoped for, is, we believe, a long stride in the right direction. We have clung tenaciously to home talent- Our illustrations have been carefully designed by Berkeley artists, and we have avoided professional work, except in one or two isolated cases, where innovations in color work have necessitated such departure. Besides these, we have secured complimentary drawings from many other sources, friends and alumni, who have gladly assisted us in adding beauty, as well as strength and variety, to these pages. Our statistics have been a peculiar source of worry to us. And it may be best not to commit ourselves by stating our standards, for none realize more keenly than we how far short we have fallen from our original purpose. But, for the guidance of those who may criticise our spirit of innovation, we shall briefly outline our ideals. The BLUE AND GOLD should chronicle the life of the College, the work of the organizations and societies for the past year. And the history should be interesting and entertaining, and should be comprehensive and complete. Too often the statis- tics are merely dry lists of names, valueless, save for casual reference. We have broken violently away from this traditional mode of treatment and perhaps have flown to the other extreme. The long lists of names, that cumbered the book in the past, have been omitted and the space occupied by reading matter that can find no place in the College Register. We have striven to infuse into the statistics a life and originality that will make them readable. We have tried to represent all the phases of life in this great University of ours, and to hand to the college world a book that represents us thoroughly. You are to decide whether we have succeeded. poness monument,! f- oce Salient Points in Retrospect. tOM the first year of our statehood the word University was familiar to many Californians. The Constitutional Convention of 1849 charged the Legislature to care for a permanent fund for the support of a University. Such a fund was soon to be in hand, as in 1853 Con- gress granted the State certain sections of land for that purpose. In 1862 came the much greater Federal offer of the Morrill Act. This Congres- sional donation was formally accepted by the State in 1864. In 1866 an Act was passed " to establish an Agricultural, Mining and Mechanical Arts College. " The Directors named located it in Alameda County, in 1867. In that year this plan was modified by the action of the College of California, an institution chartered in 1855 and opened in 1860. This College had buildings and grounds in Oakland, but had already acquired an ideal site at Berkeley. The Trustees now proposed to disincorporate and to turn over the property and good will of the College to a broader University. They stipulated only that " a College of Mines, a College of Civil Engineering, a College of Mechanics, a College of Agriculture and an Academical College, " all of the same grade as corresponding eastern colleges, should be included in the new University. The site thus trans- ferred is the University site now so highly prized. In procuring the union of these various interests, Governor Low was active in cooperating with the College Trustees. The " Act to create and organize the University of California " was introduced by Hon. John W. Dwinelle. It was approved March 23, 1868, by Governor Henry H. Haight. Instruction in the University began on the old College premises at Oakland, in the autumn of 1869. In 1873 the classes were transferred to Berkeley, where two buildings (South and North Halls) had been erected by a State appro- priation. For this appropriation the University was largely indebted to Hon. Edward Tompkins, a Regent, who was a member of the State Senate. Before his untimely death, he gave a foundation for the Agassiz Chair of Oriental Languages and Literatures. This was an example too seldom followed. The D. 0. Mills Professor- ship of Philosophy stands alone as an additional full endowment for instruction. The lamented Harold Whiting left to the University $20,000 for the promotion of his favorite studies. Dr. Henry Durant was our first President, the man who laid the foundations for the older College of California. President D. C. Oilman ' s incumbency was all too brief, as he was lured away in 1875, to begin his unique service at Baltimore in shaping the Johns Hopkins University. Dr. John LeConte came next, who as the first appointed Professor had been called to direct the first year ' s work of the University. The earliest donations for buildings came from Henry D. Bacon and A. K. P. Harmon. The first, conditioned on a State appropriation, secured the present Library building ; the second, the indispensable Gymnasium. The valuable Pioche collection was early given to the Library, and Michael Reese gave our single but very substantial endowment for the purchase of books. Many donors have since appeared on our Library list, of whom we mention Mrs. Sarah P. Walsworth, Mrs. Mary A. Avery, J. K. Moffitt, C. P. Huntington, Louis Sloss, and by bequest Professor Geo. M. Richardson. Mrs. Emilia F. Ashburner gave in 1889 a $1500 tower clock for the Library building. It is to be noted that co-education was introduced into the University as early as the autumn of 1870, without opposition, by a very conservative Board of Regents. It seemed the only sensible course to take, in a state so far removed from eastern institutions established for young women. The next Constitutional Convention took care to make this privilege secure to the daughters of the State. In speaking of the University, we mean more than the central Academic Colleges at Berkeley. One integral department is at Mt. Hamilton, two in San Francisco. In that City are also four affiliated departments, each with its own board of direction. In 1873, the Toland Medical College, established in San Francisco by Dr. H. H. Toland, became the Medical Department of the University. In 1881 the Regents organized the College of Dentistry. Another integral department of the University is carried on at the Lick Observatory, created by the bequest of James Lick in 1875. The Observatory, with a small staff of astronomers, has done much brilliant work, and stands among the foremost in reputation. The fine reflecting telescope, given in 1895 by Edward Crossley of Halifax, England, is proving a very valuable addition to the working power of the Observatory. It was a notable expression of the international comity of scientific men. Of the less closely connected departments of the University, the College of Pharmacy was affiliated in 1873. The Law Department was founded by Judge S. C. Hastings in 1878. In 1892 the San Francisco Polyclinic became the Post-Graduate Medical Department. The California Veterinary College was incorporated and affiliated in 1894. The Mark Hopkins Institute of Art grew out of the San Francisco Art Asso- ciation, organized in 1871, and the California School of Design, founded December 29, 1872. In 1893 Edward F. Searles, of Methuen, Mass., deeded to the Regents the fine Hopkins home on California street " for the exclusive uses and purposes of instruction in and illustration of the Fine Arts, Music, and Literature. " The property was to be forever known as the " Mark Hopkins Institute of Art. " In 1879 the University bore a successful test of the loyalty of the people to their highest educational institution. A Constitutional Convention had been called, whose composition reached down to the heart of the community ; and by its action the University was more securely intrenched than ever before. Article IX, Section 9, of the new Constitution declared the University " a public trust, " whose organi- zation and government were to be " perpetually continued in their existing form. " Regents Winans, Martin and Hager were members of the Convention. Our single alumnus, J. Richard Freud, did yeoman ' s service for his alma mater. In 1887 the Legislature passed the Vrooman Act, granting the University a continuing tax of one cent on every hundred dollars of the Assessors ' lists. The students at Berkeley then numbered about 300. This action was in line with that of certain other states, and was of supreme importance. It enabled the University to provide for its most pressing wants without depending on the fortunes of a biennial appeal. It was also a precedent for the Act of 1897, by which another cent was unanimously granted, after the student body at Berkeley had grown to 1500. These two subsidies have made possible a steady and healthful growth, but have not enabled us to keep pace with the actual increase in numbers and the calls for new lines of expansion. The State has been a good mother to its University. Yet for the ten years ending July 1, 1898, the foster mother, the United States, furnished 46 per cent, of the University ' s income, the State 44 per cent. Private benefactions furnished 8.6 per cent., incidentals the remaining 1.4. In 1895 the State appropriated $250,000 for the erection of new buildings in San Francisco, for the group of professional colleges. There was no provision for a site, but this need was generously met by a donation from Hon. Adolph Sutro. The buildings have been completed, and the two largest are already occupied. Of the more quiet forces contributing to the University ' s growth, we may put in the foreground the system of accrediting the high schools. It began in 1884, with a little nucleus of the nearest schools, and slowly extended to the farthest towns in the State. Over a hundred schools are now applying for this recognition, and the relation has been helpful alike to the high schools and to the University. The last few years have brought a fresh and powerful impulse from feminine hands. Mrs. Phebe A. Hearst had established in 1891 eight three-hundred-dollar scholarships for young women. Earlier still she had made valuable gifts to the Lick Observatory. In 1896 she became responsible for the expense of a new architectural plan, to be open to competitors in various countries, for the permanent deve lopment of the University site. The project was received with much interest, and more than one hundred entries were made last autumn, at Antwerp. The international jury selected eleven of these to form the basis of a second compe- tition. The architects represented in these plans were all to visit Berkeley, at Mrs. Hearst ' s expense ; and we have seen them already traversing every rod of the University grounds. This historical sketch properly includes a promise from the same gracious lady, to begin the series of new buildings provided for in the large architectural plan. Such a purpose antedated the offer of the plan and seemed to make it necessary. Our architecture thus far had been hap-hazard and highly unsatisfactory. Another generous benefactress appeared in 1898, in connection with the new College of Commerce, just established by the Regents. Miss Cora Jane Flood has given for its benefit the fine property at Menlo Park, which was owned by her father. Its value to the University will be enhanced in future years. The State scholarships established by the Regents twenty-eight in number, each of the value of $125 have been matched by the generosity of Levi Strauss, who duplicated the amount. One benefaction well deserves mention, of a building outside the University lines. Stiles ' Hall, erected by Mrs. A. J. Stiles, in memory of her husband, is under the care of the University Y. M. C. A., and is not owned by the University ; but it has served many important uses of the students, to whom it has been freely thrown open. On non-collegiate lines we must not omit the bequest of J. Clute Wilmerding for an Industrial School. The bequest became available in 1896, and a site for the school was secured in San Francisco in 1898. Director Everett Schwartz is now on the ground, and the school is to open next autumn. Many minor gifts have all along been received from donors whose names are crowded out of this bird ' s-eye view. The University is strong in its multitude of appreciative friends, chief among whom are the lengthening lines of those who have received instruction in its halls. MAKTIN KELLOGG. H. H.

BACON PROFESSOR JOSEPH LE CONTE The University in the World of Scholarship. is difficult for one who is himself a member of a university to estimate correctly its relation to the outside world of letters and scholarship. Familiarity sometimes breeds a lack of appreciation of the valuable work of an associate which is, perhaps, known and esteemed a thousand miles away. And, on the other hand, there is danger of the opposite error of overestimating the worth of men and things with which we are intimately acquainted. Moreover, our own University now includes so many departments that it is almost impossible for one man to be familiar with them all. I must, therefore, begin by asking indulgence for all oversight and omissions. I can only touch upon a few aspects of the subject, and speak of the facts with which I happen to be acquainted, leaving it to others, who have wider information, to fill up the inevitable gaps. The scholarly standing of a university to-day depends largely upon the repu- tation of its professors (often based upon their published writings), the scope and thoroughness of its graduate instruction, and the number of its graduates who win recognition as scholars or writers. I shall endeavor to glance at the position of our University in each of these directions, trying to preserve a standpoint as purely objective as possible. I shall say but little, however, of the first topic named. The scholarly repu- tation of our faculty is too vital a question, and one upon which it is too difficult to judge at short range, for me to handle with propriety. But we know that we have at least a few names upon our roll which are familiar to the whole world of scholars, and which the country at large, as well as our own community, delights to honor. Some of the best-known men upon the list have so far published but little, and yet, as my eye passes down the line, I am reminded that we are not deficient even in mere book-making. My own knowledge is here undoubtedly incom- plete, but I am myself acquainted with standard text-books, or other works of solid value, which bear upon their title-pages the names of President Kellogg, Professors Le Conte, Hilgard, Moses, Stringham, Putzker, Howison, Gayley, Bradley, Setchell, Edwards, Flagg, Campbell, Plehn, Margolis and Syle. And if we should consider not merely books, but pamphlets, monographs, review-articles and contributions, to the transactions of learned societies, which may often mean quite as much as books for the building up of scholarly reputation, the list would become a very long one, as may be seen by consulting the bibliographical notes in the President ' s biennial reports. I think we may safely affirm that our University ranks among the first eight or ten in the United States, when judged upon the basis of its tangible contributions to the thought and scholarship of the world. As regards the scope and thoroughness of graduate instruction, our situation is not unsatisfactory. In number of graduate students we rank perhaps seventh or eighth among the universities, and the growth has been very rapid during the past four years. Our graduate work is generously recognized at the best uni- versities in the East, and students who go from us to those institutions are given full credit for the work done here. But this is the bright side, and there is still much room for improvement. Our graduate work is much hampered by the fact that very many of our best students are obliged to carry on their studies while engaged in teach- ing, or in some other occupation for self-support. This outside work consumes their energies and prevents that complete absorbtion in study which is so essential to the highest success. Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, and Chicago are all well provided with graduate fellowships, which are given to ambitious students purely on the ground of scholarly promise, and these are a means of attracting to those institutions the ablest and most energetic students. Until the University of California is similarly endowed, we cannot hope to compete on equal terms with our eastern rivals. A gift of two hundred thousand dollars for the establishment of twenty fellowships would do more to build up the graduate , work, and so the scholarly reputation, of our University than any other use to which a similar amount of money could be put. Along with our lack of fellowships must be mentioned the inadequacy of our library. Seventy-five thousand volumes, well-chosen though they are, seem insig- nificant in comparison with the hundreds of thousands in the libraries of Harvard, Yale, and Chicago. Harvard expends at least twenty thousand dollars annually for books. We have barely three thousand. The library is the heart of the University, and here, too, the slender funds which our Regents have at their disposal must be eked out by private gifts. The limits of my space will allow me to touch but very briefly upon the interesting topic which remains. It must suffice to say that the number of our graduates who enter upon careers of scholarship is constantly growing, and the recognition which many of them have obtained is more than we could expect, when we remember that the oldest of our alumni have hardly yet reached their full maturity. In the single department of Philosophy, for example, Professor Royce of Harvard, Professor Mezes of Texas, Professor Bakewell of Bryn Mawr, Professor McGilvary (soon to be) of Cornell, all hold degrees from this University, and all, except Professor Royce, received most of their philosophical training here. Nor is it our philosophers alone who have received recognition abroad, as the names of Stanford ' s chemist, Professor Stillman (of our class of ' 74), Professor Adolph C. Miller ( ' 87), of the University of Chicago, and many others, will testify. Meantime much of the best scholarly ability of our graduates has been employed at home, almost forty of the professors and instructors at Berkeley being them- selves alumni. To conclude this very inadequate sketch, I will express what I believe is the feeling of every loyal member of the University. While we are not ashamed of the position which our University has already attained, and while we believe that no other American university, save Johns Hopkins and Cornell, can show a record for its first thirty years which approaches ours in brilliancy, still we are far from satisfied. But we hope that at least solid foundations have been laid, and that in the era of expansion which seems to lie before us, the scholarly reputation of the University may keep pace with its fame for beauty of situation and splendor of architecture. EDWARD BULL CLAPP. Chicago and Stanford, fortunately for this statement, are not yet thirty years old. 10 University Spirit. University is not merely a group of buildings, present or to come, on a certain beautiful spot opposite the Golden Gate. Nor is it wholly a mechanism made up of offices, statutes, curricula, class combinations and other forms for work and play and suffering. We i do not get beyond an outside view even by thinking of it as an aggre- gate of men and women, or as the sum-total of their activities. In order to know what the University of California really is, we need to regard it as a system of ideas that we university people are thi nking more or less clearly, coherently and unanimously, which we are converting, each in his own way, into motives, ideals, and aspirations, and which we are daily embodying with varying degrees of success in our conduct, and in the products of our brains and hands. In a very real sense then the University has existence here and now only in and through the common or social thinking, feeling, willing, that result from the action and reaction of mind upon mind within our own particular university community. Without at least one student and one professor the University would cease to exist. It is, accordingly, not simply a figure of speech when we ascribe personality to the University and speak of a university spirit. Obviously, too, as long as this university spirit is true to itself it is always at one with the high interests to which it owes its existence. Puerilities are not one of its manifestations ; though ever youthful, it is a grown-up spirit. It is not a spirit of license ; the University points to self-control as the corner-stone of liberty. It is not snobbish ; the University makes fine manhood and womanhood the sole criterion of worth. It excludes study for revenue only, because such study is antagonistic to the search after truth and the up-building of character. That the wretch who spreads lies or unverified rumor as university news has no share in this spirit is patent without argument, howl he ever so loudly at a foot-ball game. It is a corporate spirit involving loyalty, service, self-sacrifice, and reaching outward far beyond the pale of the University. It is as wide as humanity, for, as a university, we know nothing of political divisions, or of race, or station, or sex. The truest patriotism enters into it, for as an American university our country ' s welfare is our own. The feeling of oneness with our whole State is inseparable from it, for, as the University of Cali- fornia, our loftiest ambition can only be to incarnate the higher life of the State in our teaching, our study, and our actions, and to minister to that life so uplift- ingly and so abundantly as to make our land of sunshine a province of the kingdom of reason and righteousness. But, as already intimated, the ethical ideals of the University are rational and the in-dwelling university spirit is a rational spirit. Unless a rooter ' s mouth-piece is connected somewhere and somehow with a thinking head-piece there is nothing to prevent his exhibiting equal enthusiasm in defacing or destroying State property. Divorced from a sense of discrimination, the university spirit turns into a blind demon of mischief, as in the case of the university man, who, with the most loyal 11 intentions, is always trying to boom his university without knowing what he is booming, what he ought to boom, to what end he is booming, and who feels very sad perhaps because his university pours out showers of blessing without stage thunder and lightning for the gallery gods of the world. Rational and discriminating, the university spirit is guided by the historic sense which no genuine university student is without. As university men and women we are aware of the past in the present; we are conscious, dimly though it be, of walking in the ways of predecessors. From the acts of the Regents to the first uncertain steps of a freshman, from the ceremonies of matriculation to the sym- bolic rites of Class Day, nowhere does tradition entirely release its hold ; nowhere is there a safe path to the new except through the old. Until a certain well- known structure shall possess the inherited emotional value a Yale man associates with his fence, we shall always in the depths of our hearts prefer to sit on some- thing else. We realize, too, that this continuity of life is our very own. The University of California is not Harvard, nor Yale, nor Michigan. Neither is it an applied definition. It came into existence with an individuality of its own, acquired a strength of its own, and slowly matured a character of its own, and all this in and through a vital union with a commonwealth of its own, a union so vital that without it neither University nor State can attain to full stature. Our past, our present, our future, all are indissolubly connected with what our State is, has been, and will be. It is from this point of view we need to catch a glimpse of ourselves if our university spirit is to have any meaning and purposeful direction. And a professor from elsewhere must do more than catch a glimpse. As long as he thinks, and feels, and talks, and acts like an alien his usefulness is sadly impaired, no matter how yellow his jacket or how gorgeous his feathers. We cannot, however, know ourselves as a collective personality with a soul of our own, without realizing that our faces are set toward a goal common to other universities, although the paths leading thither differ and will differ as long as men and communities are not alike. One university may lay special stress on training " those that are born men to that which is human " ; another may make the distribution of the inherited treasures of knowledge its chief function; a third may aim chiefly at teaching how to get at the truth and how to add to it, still, according to the best that has been thought and said concerning universities, each is only emphasizing one aspect of the same organized university idea, and perhaps must do so if it is to be true to its day and generation. To be instructed by that idea is therefore as essential to the university spirit as knowledge of what citizenship means is to the civic spirit. The very name that we bear should always make it impossible for us to follow every new tin horn that toots among us or to go through the motions of university men and women in stupid, provincial self-satisfaction. To strive for clear and coherent university ideas is one of the duties we owe to ourselves as individuals and as citizens of our University, of our country, and of the world. For this end the California Union was founded. As was recently suggested, something similar to the Oxford Union wtiuld doubtless advance us in the same direction if wisely adapted to our conditions. The good services rendered by our university papers and maga- 12 zines might be augmented by courses of lectures on the rise and progress of universities, and especially on the history of our own University and State. More- over, is it merely a fond dream that the day will come when there will be not only fraternity conventions and meetings of university presidents, but also con- gresses of students and faculties combined into one grand whole of co-workers in the same noble cause ? Winning our way steadily upward toward the highlands of personal and social ethics, discerning with ever increasing clearness of vision what we have been, are, and ought to be as the University of California, we shall gradually give to our university spirit something of the purposeful self-activity, creative self-determina- tion, and calm self-mastery, that are the marks of a mature, unified, forceful personality. That every member of our university community should ever reach this stage of social self-consciousness is of course not to be expected. Freshmen and Sophomores are doing well if they " sit up and take notice " of the atmosphere they breathe. Not every one can be a university expert; and the qualities for leadership in thought or action the gods have seen fit to reserve for a few. But there is a vast difference between a university despotism and a republic of university minds. Only the latter conception is worthy of university men and women. This alone is in keeping with the larger civic life of which we are a part. This alone will fit graduates of state universities for the leadership which the passing of the political hegemony from the East to the West will inevitably thrust upon them. This alone can help us to realize that greater university we are hoping and striving for, a university so great as to make even the architectural glory that is to be ours an inadequate symbol of our university spirit. ALEXIS F. LAXGE. -. The University as a Part of the Public School System. jpHERE is nothing which more sharply distinguishes American educational Q) systems from those of Europe than the close connection which is here maintained between the Universities and the " people ' s schools, " or schools of elementary grade. In fact, many of our universities are " people ' s schools " in the best sense of the term. And there is, I think, no part of our land where the several grades of schools are more closely in touch one with another, from the lowest to the highest, than in this State of California. This community of educational interests manifests itself in some curious ways. We find children in the grammar grades who have figured out the class in which they may hope to graduate from the University, and who add accordingly, it may be, " ' 08 " to their names. We hear the senior year in college spoken of as the sixteenth grade of the public school course. High school pupils not infre- quently develop into strong partisans of this or that university, and may be seen on the day of the annual foot-ball game wearing blue-and-gold or cardinal with all the loyalty of a full-fledged collegian. The accrediting system, which began in a voluntary relation between the University and the high schools, has extended itself in several directions. In some counties, pupils who have completed the course of certain " accredited " grammar schools are admitted to the high schools without examination. A county high school is found to occupy a position, with reference to the grammar schools, somewhat analogous to that in which the University stands with reference to the high schools. I do not think it will be possible in the future to write any adequate history of civilization in California without taking some account of this intimate connection which has grown up between the several parts of our system of public instruc- tion. Professor George H. Cliif, the historian of the Central High School of Phila- delphia, has said of that school that one of the most important results of its establishment was the influence which it exerted upon the other schools of the city. It led to the general elevation of the standard of instruction in the grammar schools. It stimulated the pupils in those schools. " Prior to the establishment of the High School, " he says, " the other schools of the city often suffered from lack of pupils ; and up to 1837, the year in which the High School was founded, the largest number of pupils in the public schools was about 7,000. By the end of 1843, however, not only were all the schools filled, but there were many candi- dates awaiting admission, while the number in attendance had risen to nearly 35,000. " Other writers have noticed similar advantages arising from a close connection between the lower schools and higher institutions established as a part of the same system. It has an invigorating effect upon all the lower grades of instruction to have the system of which they form a part lead up to the higher learning, with no absolute limit to progress at any point. In fact, the elementary schools do not fully come into their own until in some way or other a clear path is opened up from them into the boundless fields of human culture and learning. It 14 r is by becoming in some sense participants in the academic freedom of the universities that the lower schools may hope to offer real education to the children of the people. So I think it is not too much to say that the advantage which the lower schools derive from the University is of itself sufficient warrant for every cent of expenditure which the State of California has devoted to the support of its University, even if no other return had been realized. It is a significant fact that the University and the high schools of the State have inter-acted in a very marked degree during recent years. The very rapid increase in attendance at the University during these years has been noted many times. Parallel with that growth there has appeared a great increase in the high school attendance of this State. It is reasonably certain that neither one of these changes has been simply the cause nor simply the effect of the other, but each has been in a measure both cause and effect. In 1890 there were but twenty-four high schools in the State. The next year a strong high school measure was passed by the State Legislature, and the number of high schools promptly rose to thirty- seven, with an attendance of 6,345 pupils. By 1896 there were ninety-eight high schools, with an attendance of 10,362 pupils. The number of high schools is now about one hundred twenty, and the attendance will probably aggregate over 12,000. In 1891, 2.76 per cent, of the school enrollment of the State was in the high schools ; five years later the percentage had risen to 3.99. It appears, then, that while the attendance in the University has been rapidly expanding, the attendance at the high schools has not only shown a great absolute increase, but its ratio to the enrollment in the elementary schools has bounded upward, increasing nearly one-half in the short space of five years. This ratio in the schools of Wisconsin for the year 18% was 3.35 ; in New Jersey, a little over 4.00 ; in Massachusetts, 7.90. The standard of instruction in our high schools has been advancing. Large numbers of teachers are going out from this University to engage in high school instruction, and others of the best institutions of higher education in the land are largely represented in the teaching force of those schools. It is said to be difficult now for a teacher who has not had a college training to secure a high school position in this State. Our University recommended over one hundred of its graduates for the high school teacher ' s certificate last year. More and more of these from year to year are engaging in instruction in the elementary schools ; while those who are preparing to teach in high schools are in numerous instances rounding out their preparation by taking a course of graduate study leading to the master ' s degree. These are some of the ways in which our University is joining with the schools in the effort to make this Golden State as rich in spiritual goods as in material things a real home-land of all that is good and true and beautiful. ELMER E. BKOWX. The Professional Colleges. ) N 1873, the Trustees of Toland Medical College petitioned the Board of Regents to make the College a department of the University. The founder of the College, the late Dr. H. H. Toland, recognizing that the State is vitally interested in medical instruction, transferred to the University the college property and apparatus as an unconditioned gift. By resolution of the Board of Regents the College became an integral part of the University under the name of the Medical Department. The College of Dentistry and the Postgraduate Medical Department were estab- lished later by the Board of Regents upon the recommendation of the Medical Department. The Hopkins Institute of Art, the Colleges of Law, of Pharmacy, and of Veterinary Science are but loosely attached to the University, their management being entirely in the hands of separate Boards of Trustees. The maintenance of the Hastings College of the Law was made possible by the late Judge S. C. Hastings, who gave the State 100,000 dollars upon which the State pays an annual interest of seven per cent. In 1895, the professional departments entered upon a new era. An act of the State Legislature, appropriating 250,000 dollars for a group of buildings for the pro- fessional departments, was endorsed by his Excellency, James H. Budd, an alumnus of the University, then Governor of the State. As a site for these buildings, the late Adolph Sutro gave the Board of Regents thirteen acres south of the east end of Golden Gate Park. The Medical Department moved to its new quarters in November of last year, the College of Pharmacy a little later. It is expected that the Colleges of Law and of Dentistry will begin their next sessions in the new buildings. The Medical Department has the central building of the group, the College of Law being on the west, the Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy sharing the building on the east. In the rear is a building devoted to the Veterinary College. Connected with the central building is an auditorium with a seating capacity of 1200. In the Hastings College of the Law instruction is free. The maintenance of the other departments depends entirely upon fees paid by the students. The Board of Regents has never as yet devoted any part of the University ' s resources to the pro- fessional colleges. In the latter part of 1898, the Board of Regents granted the request of the Faculty of the Medical Department, that the status of the department be so changed that it should bear the same relation to the University as do the colleges at Berkeley. It is to be hoped that this action inaugurates a policy of recognizing all the pro- fessional colleges as cherished children of the University. Perhaps the Colleges of Medicine and of Law, instead of being viewed as things apart from the University, may become its crowning glories. A. A. D ' ANCONA. 16 The Planning of a University. HE rapid growth of the West and the spreading belief in higher edu- cation make it evident that in the near future large additions to the University of California will be necessary. Some three years ago the question arose as to the desirability of erecting such new buildings as the future should demand according to a general plan. Inquiry among representatives of older universities made it evident that the procuring of a general plan now would save trouble later. Mrs. Phebe A. Hearst, convinced of the wisdom of this course, offered to procure for the University a general plan which should serve as a guide for the future. To this end she established an international competition, assisted in the practical work by Messrs. Reinstein, Jones and Budd, acting as trustees. The program was arranged by Professor Guadet, aided by suggestions from many men, and the jury was chosen by an informal vote of the architects most esteemed by their colleagues. The judges represent as nearly as possible the various schools of architecture : Herr Dr. Paul Wallot, Monsieur J. L. Pascal, Mr. R. Norman Shaw, Mr. Walter Cook, and Regent Reinstein. At a meeting in Antwerp, last September, the jury unanimously approved eleven of the designs presented. The authors of the eleven designs were as follows: Messrs. Barbaud Bauhain, Mr. E. Benard, Prof. F. Bluntschli, Messrs. D. Despradelles Stephen Codman, Mr. Rudolph Dick, Mr. J. H. Freedlander, Messrs. G. Heraud W. C. Eickmuller, Messrs. Howard Cauldwell, Messrs. Howells, Stokes Hornbostel, Messrs. Lord, Hewlett Hull, and Mr. WTiitney Warren. The authors of the schemes were invited to visit the site of the University and to agree upon a final program among themselves. The jury will be able to choose a plan which is appropriate to the grounds, for the meeting for the final decision will be held at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art in San Francisco. The idea of a general plan for the arrange- W ment of grounds and buildings is not new. The palaces of sovereigns were usually built after a prearranged plan, which provided for the accommodation of a great number of people, and for temples, gardens, great baths, statuary, etc. Almost any book on the history ' of architecture will give illustrations of such plans, as, for example: the plateau of Pergamus, the palaces, the baths and the forums of Rome and Pompeii. These compositions and surroundings were not necessarily built at one time, but the schemes of Vitruvius show that the architects at the time of the Romans were great planners and that the general scheme, although existing in part or by mrrnrTTT tr l.i.js " - .v 17 tradition, was put into order at some time. A much later composition is the dagger-shaped plan of St. Peter ' s, with the approaches and surroundings. If you examine the map of Rome in any guide-book, you will notice the point of the dagger at the castle of St. Angelo, the blade broadening to the guard formed by the two semi-circular colonnades flanking the entrance to the cathedral ; the church itself forms the hilt. The blade is, and always was, filled in with houses. The Borgo Nuovo shows very clearly the intention of the architect, but, for some reason, probably pecuniary, the work remained unfinished. This scheme, including the Vatican, was the most complete that was carried out after the end of the great constructing era of the Eastern Empire. Versailles and parts of Blois and Fontaine- bleau show the revival of the " great plan- ning, " as it was called. Louis XIV. and his architect, Mansard (nephew of the inventor of the mansard roof), evolved other schemes, some. of which are published. Fortunately for the archaeologist, they were unable to remodel as extensively as they desired. At present the French are scheming general plans on a larger scale than heretofore attempted. The PERGAMUS. MONS PALA1INUS. city of Paris itself is continually destroying old quarters and cutting new boulevards in accordance with a prearranged plan. It is to be understood that, in this article, " plan " means a design of a horizontal sec- tion through a building or buildings, show- ing the arrangement of all that is put upon the grounds, and " planning " is the art of making a plan. Owing to the complexity of modern demands, the plan has grown to be the all-absorbing study in architecture ; the elevation, once so important, has become an archaeological detail. The plans for the Paris Exposition in 1900 give an idea of the sort of problem the architect of to-day is called upon to solve. ST. PETER ' S. 18 Throughout the history of architecture, the plan has been growing more and more difficult, new problems presenting themselves, old ones becoming more complicated. Temples became cathedrals, coliseums theatres and forums office buildings, and, instead of a group of folding stools in the shade of the temple or the corner of the market place, is now the university with accommodations for thousands of students. The university is one of the most difficult and fascinating problems the modern architect has to solve, fascinating because of the great possibilities, difficult because it has not yet been satisfactorily solved and the architect has no historic precedent to give a clue to the solution. No one can come away from Oxford without feeling that he has been in the ideal place for study. The har- monious forms and quiet coloring, the absolute stillness and the atmosphere charged with historical associations what more could a student want? and yet one has only to imagine two thousand " fellows " scurrying for a train through the labyrinth of low passages and blind courts to realize that Oxford is a connecting link between the cell of the mediaeval monk student and the modern university. On the other hand, the new Sorbonne of Paris, though the courts are paved with the roofs of lecture rooms, is a model of convenience and clear circulation. One single arch of the large hall would encircle the university in Paris in which Petrarch and his colleagues slept obliged by the law to furnish their own straw! If the Sorbonne had not adopted the mediaeval 20xl35-foot-lot-inside-the-walls- tenement system of several stories, it would probably stand, or rather serve as a remodelable mass, as long as there is a university to use it. As it is, the enormous edifice is already too small. Being built in three stories, no department can be modified without detriment to those below or above, even if there were room to spread laterally, which there is not. The Sorbonne was begun twenty years ago, and in that time the requirements changed so entirely that the original program had become a fictitious thing before the building was completed. In building a new university, it is certain that some of the faults of older institutions will be avoided if thought be given to the general arrangement of the plan. In a general plan for a university, the objects to work towards are, first, an arrangement which shall be convenient and suitable to the greatest number of students, and, second, one which will permit of growth. First. If the architect is unhampered he naturally takes care of the public, for some reason or other the architectural line goes that way; the more he is influenced by individuals the more likely he is to lose himself in details, which should come later, and the less likely his composition is to be broad. For this reason the university should be planned by some one outside of the institution, and as far as possible a disinterested party. Second. To make a plan which shall answer now and at the same time pro- vide for future growth in any or every direction, is the di fficulty of the university problem. The conditions of an architectural composition are called the program. As it is impossible to foretell what the next generation of students may need, the program for the composition of an immense growing university can only suggest, not dictate. As the work can not be executed at one time, the program can give only the most general conditions, enough to indicate the approximate dimensions and general form. If the program can be but vague and without detail, the general plan, as a result, will give nothing more than the location of the various masses. When planning a dwelling, the architect is given an idea of the use of each room in a general way. With these rooms as units he makes a composition. In planning for a university of many departments the units are the departments ; the interior arrangements of the departments are considered later. From the general plan, therefore, no building can be made without another special design for that par- ticular building. The general plan will place the buildings and arrange the com- munications ; its aim is to simplify and not to embellish (it is in itself the em- bellishment in the same sense that a . tree is an embellishment). It gives the most practical way of solving the question of accommodating all of the many needs of the university in an economical way and has nothing to do with elevations or architectural styles. The few statues and fountains that are put into the plan do not affect the composition ; it will be beautiful without them if the problem is well solved, provided there is nothing wrong with the program. It is probable that the plan the jury gives us next September will be the beginning of something very beautiful. Any modification we may suggest the architect has probably tried and discarded as he wandered with his pencil among his lines and points ; time is the best critic. Nenot, architect of the Sorbonne, feels in regard to it that the original design was academic and cold, but it was modified in the building as he was forced to make art subservient to utility, until now he sees in his completed work a living thing rather than a tomb-like monument. Fifty years from now the plan of the University will have become modified and softened ; it will be transformed many times, because so easily done. The buildings will have undergone changes, so planned from the beginning that they could grow. This patchwork gives the same feeling to the whole composition as the new stones in an old cathedral, the newness becomes tarnished, the mo- notony of exactness relieved. By that time the gardens will be older, and in places a vine may soften the harshness of perfection. Even should we err toward the brilliant, which is not probable, time will give to the whole that earnestness and seriousness that will awaken love in the hearts of the men that behold it, and it will be an incarnation of that which prompted Mrs. Hearst to do as she has done. B. R. MAYBECK. t 20 The New City of Learning. CITY of Learning, a Home of the Intellectual Life, that is what is contemplated in the rapidly maturing architectural plan. Three things conjoin and are held in mind in the development and execution of this purpose: the site and natural environment, with which my readers are familiar; the true expression of archi- tecture, which is treated of in another essay; and the intellectual life of California. Now, we have the natural environment set here by the eternal forces to last with the life of the globe ; and we have eleven sets of architects, comprising at least nineteen individuals, all inspired with the feeling that there is before them an ideal of unique beauty and splendor, and gu ided by a jury that includes four of the great architectural master minds of the age. Nature has done her part ; art is engaged in achieving the results set for her. There is right here, in the conception, rendering, and permanent manifesta- tion of this idea, a powerful element in the intellectual life. But of that we shall not speak. We look at the intellectual life from other aspects. We want this intellectual life to be no less sincere and no less splendid than are the displays of nature and the fabrications of art. We want to build upon the traditions and ideals and actual foundations of the intellectual life for which the University of California has already stood. We want to further the purposes of the past, and to seize upon those of the future. We want to cherish philosophy, letters and science. We want to study nature and man. We want to educate youth, and to advance knowledge. We want, through the instrumentalities of the University, to learn how to raise the standard of intelli- gence, and then to raise it. We want to produce and train the leaders of thought and action. We want to educate the men and women, who, when they go hence, will find their right vocation, whether conspicuous or humble. We want to make them contented in their lines of work, but ever restless to go ahead along those lines. We want to be in advance of public opinion, but not too far in advance. We don ' t want to be dead-weights on society, but rather its uplifters. We want to discard the inutilities of medievalism, and all vain and false superstitions. We want to guard the beneficent heritage of the ages, but to rid ourselves of their cumbering impediments. The old renaissance broke the fetters of the dark centuries with such instruments as it had. The new renaissance has other instruments and other purposes. The old university was the outgrowth of the old renaissance. The new uni- versity must res pond to the demands of the new renaissance, social and intellectual. The University of California was a response to the intellectual demand of the community. It has not failed to give a good account of itself. But the demands are now greater than it is answering. Maybe the University is not very con- scious of its shortcomings, and maybe the community is hardly more so. The University of California is not peculiar in this : it pertains in varying degree to at least all American universities. Hence I am not prone to the idea of copying and 21 conforming. No university sets me a sufficient standard. These shortcomings may be alleged as fault of the university, or as fault of the community. But the university especially the State University is set up to show the way. It should year by year, or decade by decade, gain for itself the means of minister- ing to the community in ampler measure. Growth should be in the line of constant reform and readaptation. In the larger consideration of the meaning of the university, I have, naught to do with the contest between research and instruction, between graduate and undergraduate, between college and university (American), or gymnasium and university (German). These are matters of scope and equilibrium. What I am concerned with is the problem of an adequate University of California. What is to be an adequate University of California is just the problem in- volved in what we may call the intellectual content of the architectural plan. How more fully is the University to meet the intellectual demands of California to-morrow and in the progressing decades of the twentieth century ? That surely is the problem behind the artistic creation. This problem does not carry with it any questions as between the humanities and science, between classical and modern languages, between pure and applied science, between liberal and technical education. It is a problem how to provide that all the activities of the University shall contribute to the betterment of man and of society. Not one interest of the State-life but concerns the University. The task that should ever be before the University is how to forestall the emergencies and how to cure the ills of the individual and of the commonwealth. Concretely, how may a drouth be averted or its calamities prevented ? How may the phyloxera be exterminated ? How may taxation be rationally and equi- tably regulated ? How may class antagonisms be allayed ? How may poverty be diminished, and prosperity and comfort promoted ? How may moral delinquencies be checked ? And so on through the whole range of things that affect our well- being, so that society shall become sound, intelligent and moral. Well, this is to be a City of Learning. It is to have its public quarters, auditoriums, theatres, museums, athletic and military fields, ample, splendid, noble. It is to have its residential quarters, simple, chaste, graceful. It is to have its educational departments, refined, scholarly, elevating. It is to have its command- ing avenues and quiet paths. It is to have its groves and lawns, its beautified brooks, its magnificent panorama of mountains, and its ever inspiring outlook. This City is to be populated with youth, manhood, and old age : the new seeker after knowledge, the learned and sincere professor, and the venerable figure that bids us all to lead the noble life. There shall be the scholar and recluse, the teacher, the learner, the investigator and promoter of science, the engineer, the farmer, artisan and laborer. They shall be busy at their several vocations in divisions or as individuals. Quiet pursuits, meditation or reflection shall not be disturbed by dissonant noises. Mountain peaks, or remote, sheltered nooks will guard them. But there shall be a large community life. There shall be the forum of common discussion. There shall be the energetic life on the athletic field. There shall be the gatherings in the public lecture-hall, to hear the renowned scholar. There shall be the theatrical performances, or concert, or opera. There shall be refined social intercourse and pleasure, improving morals, mind and manners. There shall be the great university spirit, which will not be puffed up with vain-glory, but will make of the Alma Mater a tremendous and righteous power for the augmentation of California ' s prosperity. WILLIAM CAREY JONES. 22 The University and the Orient its relation to certain problems to be solved by this nation, the University of California holds a noteworthy position. It stands near the limit of the continent, where the westward migration of our race receives an important check. Earlier, the eastern shore of the Atlantic presented an obstacle similar to that encountered here. As the exit from Europe towards the west was temporarily barred, the restless nations of the north overran the less virile nations of the south. Although the westward move- ment encounters a new hindrance on the shore of the Pacific, there is no evidence of a decline in the force that has made the line of westward progress coincide with the line of migration. The expansive power that has carried our race over the Atlantic and made it fill a new continent is as great to-day as at any period in history, and it is not to be supposed that popular declamation or a resolution of Congress can transform an aggressive people, or cause it suddenly to lay aside its most characteristic quality. The pressure outward, tending to enlarge the area of its dominion, will continue till the race becomes less prolific, less self-reliant, and less enterprising; or, in a word, as long as it remains undegenerate. And if the inhabitants of the United States continue to increase during the next hundred years as rapidly as they have increased during the last hundred years, this country will have at the end of the next century a population of more than six hundred millions. The stream of migration, which has finally reached the western coast of America, must, therefore, be deflected either towards the north or the south, or pass to the lands beyond the Pacific. It may not be expected to find an outlet towards the north, on account of unfavorable geographical and climatic con- ditions, and because the northern side of the Anglo-Saxon stream of migra- tion reaches to the limit of the habitable lands in this direction. On the south, however, the high lands of Mexico offer especially favorable climatic condi- tions, and, moreover, the relatively slow increase of the Mexican people is likely to offer only an ineffective resistance in this direction. Beyond the Pacific, on the other hand, the density of the population sets a barrier to the western movement of the rank and file of our race. During the advance hitherto, all classes have moved together. But here, on the western edge of the continent, the common laborers of our race are destined to halt. The rough work of the oriental regions is amply provided for by the industrious swarms of Orientals. If our race moves forward upon these regions, it will not be the race as a whole, but the race represented by its organizing and dominating classes. The common laborers of the Anglo-Saxon nations have little or nothing to give them success in rivalry with the ordinary laborers of the East But those who organize and control the economic life of the West have few effective rivals in the nations beyond the Pacific. Members of this class, carrying with them their mechanical skill and the power of industrial organization and domination, may move upon the Orient and transform its industrial activity as they have transformed the industrial activity of the Western nations. The migrations beyond this shore will, therefore, be the movement of a class and not the movement of a society embracing all ranks and occupations. In this we have before us a new form of experience, which rests on the fact that control of the mechanical appliances and the labor-saving and capital- saving devices of our industrial system will insure industrial and commercial domina- tion over the non-mechanical races. Machinery and industrial corporations are the instruments which will confirm this domination, even where, it is affirmed, the English stock cannot breed and mature. Under the individual order, the individual proprietor was obliged to spend his life at the place of his undertaking; but under the present order, the individual enjoys a larger freedom. The modern corporation is like the modern machine, whose parts can be readily replaced. The men involved in the corporation who constitute these parts may come and go, but the corpora- tion, with undiminished efficiency in the performance of its appointed task, goes on forever. In this prospect, the University of California has a somewhat peculiar mission. It holds such a geographical position in the world that it may reasonably be expected to have an outlook towards the Orient. It must mediate between the East and the West. It must aim not only to lead young men to understand and appreciate the thought and the moral life of our race as revealed in the growth of Western civilization, but also to open the way to a knowledge of the Oriental point of view and the traditions of Asiatic life. If men of our race are to dominate the commerce of the Orient, they must know not only the principles and methods of commercial life as developed in Europe and America, but also the conditions to which they must adapt themselves in the trade beyond the Pacific. With respect to this need, the University will be in a position to render an important service. Through its researches in the field of industry and commerce, knowledge of the economic conditions of the Oriental nations may be made to supplant baseless traditions and uninstructed prejudices ; and, in the light of this knowledge, the Orient and the Occident may be drawn nearer to one another on a higher plane of rational commercial intercourse. Moreover, those who migrate to the lands across the Pacific may be trained at the University for domination in economic affairs ; they may be merchants to introduce the methods of corporate business, or engineers to be the missionaries of a mechanical regeneration. Whatever the field of their proposed efforts in the East, they will need some form of intellectual training that will enable them to keep above the rank of the common laborer, and it will be the business of the University to furnish this training, however widely in so doing it may depart from the educational ideals of the past. BERNARD MOSES. 24 The Demands of the Orient. LlCHER than her mines of golden ore, or her harvests of golden grain ' and fruits, are the advantages which the " Golden State, " through her unique position with respect to the Orient, is destined to reap. The lines of intercourse uniting the East to the West, the Old World to the New, converge towards California, so that a great highway of commerce must pass through her " Golden Gate. " For her no toilsome Argonautic expedition in search of a " Golden Fleece " is necessary. She has simply to avail herself of all the benefits that come to her and belong to her by right of location. Not for a moment should it be supposed that the value of such advantages is to be measured merely by the material wealth to be realized. " It is more blessed to give than to receive. " While California, on the one hand, is extending her commercial relations with the East, she may, on the other, enjoy the greater blessings that will attend her promotion of the intellectual and moral development of China and Japan. It was with a fine prophetic instinct that Mr. Edward Thompkins, more than a quarter of a century ago, addressed the Regents of the University on this subject. Among other things he told them that " the child is now born that will see the com- merce of the Pacific greater than that of the Atlantic, " and that " it is therefore of the utmost consequence for California that the means shall be provided to instruct our young men, preparing for lives of business activity, in the languages and literature of Eastern Asia. It is the duty of the University to supply this want. " He had at the same time noticed the increasing number of young men from China and Japan that had come to America to seek for a higher education, and therefore said, " I feel deeply the humiliation of seeing them pass by us in almost daily procession to the other side of the continent in search of that intellectual hospitality that we are not yet enlightened enough to extend to them. " From these quotations, it will be seen that the philanthropic founder of the Chair of Oriental Languages and Literature had in view two kinds of people to be benefited, the citizens of the United States and the natives of Oriental countries. The four principal classes of Americans to whom the University of California now offers educational facilities in connection with intercourse with the Orient are the diplomatist, the merchant, the practical scientist, and the missionary. Besides these. there are students of various departments of science, art and literature whose scholar- ship cannot be completely rounded out without something more than a cursory glance at Oriental affairs. The minister or consul, who goes to Eastern lands to represent the United States, is obviously at a disadvantage unless he takes with him an insight into such subjects as the history, laws, government, religions, manners and customs, language and litera- ture of the people among whom he is to live. Should the exigencies of the American form of government render such a preparation impracticable for the time being, the next best arrangement would be for the Federal government to provide a thoroughly organized corps of permanent secretaries and interpreters, who should qualify in a full Oriental course, as well as in all necessary legal and other knowledge, before receiving their official appointments. Great Britain and other European nations long ago saw this necessity and are liberally providing for it. For want of such men, serious embar- rassments will arise as our intercourse expands. They cannot be made in a day, but are the result of years of careful preparation. The merchant, in the near future, will be brought into closer contact with his Oriental customers than ever before. He will not stay at home and wait for business to fall into his hands, but will have to cross the ocean and secure it in the face of inter- national competition. The number of American capitalists and manufacturers who are going to the East and finding business opportunities is augmenting. Without a knowl- edge of Oriental affairs and languages, however, such undertakings will fail to obtain the highest possible results. This University, with its Commercial college and Oriental department, ought to send out increasing numbers of young men, fully equipped, to be the future heads of large and successful mercantile firms. In opening up the comparatively unknown regions of the East, the value and im- portance of practical science is already becoming apparent, and especially so in China where enormous natural resources are merely waiting to be called into life and energy. Already American experts are scattered over the country, prospecting for minerals, superintending mines, establishing factories, engaging in various branches of engineer- ing, teaching schools of technology, or of other subjects. In their few intervals of leisure they make random attempts to pick up here and there a Chinese word or phrase, so as to do without an interpreter. In all important technical matters they find the best interpreters fail through ignorance of scientific terminology. Eventually there will be a survival of the fittest, of those who possess a thorough knowledge of Oriental languages and affairs in addition to skill in practical science. Lastly, there is the missionary; usually a young man or woman, fresh from college, with narrow views and little experience in the world. It stands to reason that if students contemplating missionary labors were required to take a thorough Oriental course beforehand, they would demonstrate the extent of their linguistic talents and be ready to commence permanent and successful work on arriving at their destination. Each department of Oriental missionary work could find its other special needs supplied in this University ; the educator his pedagogy ; the medical missionary his medical training, and the preacher, having previously completed his theological studies, all else he might require. Next, as regards the Orientals themselves. We see China and Japan rapidly coming into closer touch with the great nations of the world. China is trying to stave off their inroads and hold her own territory. She has already been made to feel that Western education is the groundwork for her future development. She is making frantic efforts to establish schools, colleges and universities on Western systems. Both Chinese and Japanese students, who have learned all they can in their own countries and want to take higher studies abroad, require special facilities. The University that provides these most liberally will become the favorite. Shall the University of Cali- fornia for want of elasticity, or through a too strict and mistaken economy, fail to attract, but allow them to continue travelling eastward or going to Europe for what they need? But this University has a further duty in making special provision for the thousands of Chinese and Japanese who are already residents of the State. A special system of education has long been called for, by which those who are native sons, having the right to vote, as well as those who have been born on the other side of the Pacific, can have a graduated course of preparatory instruction which shall culminate in the University of California. Such instruction should include not only a good knowledge of the English language and literature, but also of their own ; which latter should give them the same credits as are allowed for other foreign languages and literature. Under a graded system of this kind, difficulties, like those attending the municipal rule over the Chinese in San Francisco, would undoubtedly diminish. The founder of the Agassiz professorship clearly foresaw all these needs and wisely decided that his funds could not be appropriated to a nobler and better use. Hitherto but few young Americans have gone forth from this University to the Orient and but few Orientals have graduated from its colleges. With increased facilities, the number should augment every year, till the University of California becomes as well known on the other side of the Pacific as it is on this. JOHN FRYER. 26 The Regents. ONE of the most notable events of the year an event under the supervision of the Regents is the world competition of architects in accordance with the Phebe Hearst Architectural Plan. The gift of another generous woman, Cora Jane Flood, has made the year 1898 memorable. The net income from the property presented by her to the University is to be used for the support of some line of study in the new College of Commerce. The Regents have petitioned the present legislature for an appropriation of $88,500. The whole amount may not be secured ; but the $12,000 used to replace the burned College of Agriculture will be refunded, and enough money is hoped for to pro- vide a temporary auditorium. The Regents have continually deplored the overcrowded buildings of the Berkeley Colleges. There is the constantly recurring question of higher courses before the body. They realize the strength of the University will eventually lie in its original work, but, at the present development, believe it better to exert their means in spreading intelli- gence throughout the State by bringing as many as possible in contact with the best the University affords. Many undergraduate courses have thus been perfected. The Board feels that the University, primarily a State institution, should keep in close touch with the needs of the people. It has continued to make appropriations for the visiting of secondary schools, at the sacrifice of money and instruction. It would be possible to obtain nearly as large a number of students by the requirement of matriculation examinations from all, at Berkeley, but the loss of an intimate contact with the University would be detrimental to the secondary institutions. The policy with reference to State interests is shown this year in the establishing of a Dairying Department of the College of Agriculture, and in the acceptance of the Wilmerding Trust. The Academic Senate, to whom the Regents have deferred in the matter of the University curriculum, and which they fortunately agree, has raised the matriculation standard so that at present it is not in favor of taxing the preparatory schools with any more of the secondary work of the Freshman and Sophomore years. In establishing the College of Commer ce, the Regents conceived Commerce not as a trade, but as a profession. They have placed it alongside of and given it equal rank with the other three colleges of general culture. In selecting a new President, they want to get the best material in the world. While they feel that men on the ground would be acceptable, they will thoroughly canvass the East. Their policy is not to be in a hurry, for they feel the University is getting along well. President Kellogg will continue to the end of this year and pos- sibly longer. Board of Regents. EX-OFFICIO REGENTS. HIS EXCELLENCY HENRY T.

Our Faculty and the Outside World. L I NIVERSITY EXTENSION is a broad term. It may be used to cover all points at which the University touches the outside world. It is true the term originated in England, about twenty-five years ago, where it was used to describe a movement undertaken by Cambridge University. The movement aimed to extend to the many, University teaching, so long the privilege of the few. The different forms of Uni- versity Extension which have grown up in California may all be traced to the same aim. One of the earliest forms of University Extension in California was a series of bulletin-lectures, issued by the College of Agriculture. Professor E. W. Hilgard, having in mind the duty of a State University to find means of spreading and practi- cally applying the scientific knowledge it has in keeping, used this method of reaching the people of the State. Within the last few years, the work has been supplemented by the holding of Farmers ' Institutes in different parts of the State. Over a hundred such meetings have been held during the present year. Another early form of University Extension was the creation of a bond between the University and the High Schools of the State ; in other words, the establishing of the accrediting system. The privilege of entering graduates at the University wit h- out the formality of an examination is one of the minor gains the High Schools owe to this arrangement. The presence among them of members of the University Faculty, the opportunity which the country High School shares with the largest city school, of receiving advice and help from men of large opportunities, is much more to be prized. As an index of the appreciation of this privilege, it might be mentioned that one hundred and ten preparatory schools in the State applied this year for accrediting. Of these, ninety-six were public High Schools. This form of University Extension gave rise to another, the participation of members of the Faculty in the deliberations of Teachers ' Institutes and Associations. The acquaintance formed in the schoolroom, and the informal talks to the pupils of the High School, frequently lead to a request for a more thorough discussion of topics of common interest. A hundred or more talks to teachers, or lectures to larger audiences have been given by members of the Faculty this year. The University ' s summer school is another form of University Extension. It opens the University laboratories and library to the teachers of the State. The courses given have thus far been scientific ; but the Regents intend to offer a wider range of work this year. Members of the University Faculty frequently take part in the work of vacation schools, which are not conducted by the University. Three men were on the faculty of the summer school at Pacific Grove last summer, and as many will be at work there this year. Professor Syle gave two courses of lectures at the Chatauqua, N. Y., summer session of 1898. 32 University Extension lectures, on the Cambridge plan, were begun in 1891. They were at first confined to courses in San Francisco and Oakland. But later, courses were given in San Jose, Sacramento, Stockton, Fresno, and even Los Angeles and Ventura. Repeated requests from towns throughout the State prove that the people are alive to the advantages University Extension has to offer. Unfortunately, as the demand grows, the University ' s means of satisfying it declines. In the past ten years the number of students at Berkeley has increased five-fold. During the same time, the teaching staff has been increased only three-fold. It is not to be wondered at, under these circumstances, that volunteers for additional courses outside the Uni- versity should not be plentiful. A course originally embraced sixteen sessions, and these were often two hours in length. For the reason mentioned above, the tendency has been to give briefer and briefer courses. The attendance is always good, and it has increased during the past year. Professor Fryer ' s second series on China attracted so large an audience, that the lecture room in the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art had to be abandoned for the more roomy auditorium of the Academy of Sciences. During the first half of the year 1898-99, the following courses were given : In San Francisco, at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art : CHINA. Six lectures by Professor John Fryer. MATHEMATICS. Six lectures by Associate Professor Haskell. Subject, The Theory of Equations, based on the Theory of Substitutions. GREEK. Six readings, with translation and comment, from the first half of the Odyssey of Homer, by Associate Professor Flagg. INTERNATIONAL LAW. Four lectures by Assistant Professor Hengstler. AMERICAN HISTORY. Three lectures by Dr. K. C. Babcock. In San Jose : SPAIN AND HER COLONIES. Six lectures by Professor Bernard Moses. During the second half of the year 1898-99, the following courses were given : In San Francisco, at the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art : PHYSIOGRAPHY. Six lectures by Dr. H. W. Fairbanks. PSYCHOLOGY. Four lectures by Assistant Professor Stratton. POLITICAL ECONOMY. Our Finances in the Spanish War. Two lectures by Associ- ate Professor Plehn. THE PHYSIOLOGY OF VISION. Six lectures by Dr. A. A. D ' Ancona. CHINESE. Throughout the year 1898-99, Dr. John E. Gardner, of the department of Oriental Languages and Literature, conducted a class in the Cantonese dialect. In San Francisco, at the Academy of Sciences building : BOTANY. Six lectures by Dr. Willis L. Jepson. Regular attendants upon Extension courses, who pass a satisfactory examina- tion at the end of any course, are entitled to receive from the University Certifi- cates of Record of the work done. Regular University credit will be given on these certificates when the holders become registered students of the University. Correspondence regarding Extension courses should be addressed to Mrs. May L. Cheney, Secretary for University Extension, University of California, Berkeley. I ICE) THE Associated Students, the ultimate authority on all questions of purely student activities, is com- posed of all the undergraduate students enrolled in the Colleges at Berkeley. It was organized in 1887 to " take effective action upon all matters relating to the general welfare of the Student Body and of the University. " In 1897 the Athletic Association was organized as a separate body, and the control of athletics taken from the Associated Students as such. Yet the Association still exercises an all important influence in this realm and furnishes the effective support which makes victory possible for our teams. In other respects the Association has remained the same as when first organized. Among the important problems which have pre- sented themselves for consideration has been the sup- pression of class rushes, which was resolved upon last year. The most important work undertaken this year was the arousing of an enthusiastic College Spirit. This was accomplished largely through the instrumentality of rallies organized by the Association and supported by its funds. Several were held at night and several during football practice, and they were addressed by prominent members of the Student Body and of the Alumni. The result of this work may be partially summed up by the figures 22 to 0, but the end is not yet. v-c-s-c 34 The Association has also greatly strengthened Debating, this year and in the past. Last year saw the establishment of a committee of three, appointed by the president, which has full control of all debating interests, and the plan has proved a marked success. This year a new departure has been made in presenting to members of the Debating teams an official emblem, as an acknowledgment of their services to the University. A similar action has been taken with regard to members of the Intercollegiate Chess Team. Many important committees have been appointed by the president during the past year. One of these has as its duty the revision of the constitution, which is in an unsatisfactory condition, due in part to the neglect of past officers and in part to new needs which have arisen. The most pressing of these needs is for a stable system of finances, in place of the lax system of collecting assessments which has been in vogue since the organization of the Association. Such a system the Association has been making efforts to establish. An exceedingly valuable feature of the Association has been the opportunity it offers members of the Faculty and Alumni, and friends of the University to address the Student Body under circumstances conducive to closer sympathy and better apprecia- tion. Many such addresses have been delivered ; notably, during the past year, those of Hon. Wm. R. Davis on behalf of the Alumni, and President Harper, of the University of Chicago. With the prestige of the precious results already obtained, and the promise of closer union with the Alumni and more consistent support from our own members, the future promises much to the Associated Students. The officers for the present year are : CHAS. E. THOMAS, " 99, President. KNIGHT DCNLAP, " 99, Secretary. ROBERT H. COLLINS, XX), Vice-President. RALPH C. DANIELS, " 99, Treasurer. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer ex officio. RALPH T. FISHER, of the Sophomore Glass. JOHN A. MAGEE. of the Senior Glass. ARCHIE J. CLOUD, of the Junior Class. EDWIN H. ANDREWS, of the Freshman Glass. 35 The Associated Women Students. Ti HE name of the organization speaks for itself. The women of the University have organized to promote closer intercourse, in a purely college way, between all regularly enrolled women students ; to discuss such questions as pertain strictly to the women and to look after their comfort by proper supervision of the ladies ' rooms, both of East and North Hall. The Association was organized during the Christmas term of 1897, with Miss Marion Whipple as President. Before this it had been a loosely connected society, meeting to elect officers and whenever the Associated Student Body thought fit to put a question before it. At the first meeting in October of ' 97 a constitution was adopted, and under this the Association has been prospering and doing good work, though rather slowly. It has taken an active interest in women ' s athletics, and through its efforts a Tennis and a Cross County Club have been formed. Its latest work, and one which should in time mean much to the University, is the formation of an Art Association for the promotion of the aesthetic side of higher education by the study of master-pieces in Music, Art and Literature. Active membership is confined to the women students of the University, but the associate members may be any thoroughly interested in the work, whether mem- bers of the University or not, and of these associate members, the Advisory Board will be made up. The officers of the A. W. S. are drawn from the upper classes ; president and vice-presidents from the Seniors ; treasurer from the Juniors, and secretary from either Juniors or Sophomores. They are elected just before the May vacation, to serve for one year following. OFFICERS : President, Miss CLOTILDE GRHNSKY, ' 99. Second Vice-President, Miss FLORENCE EWING, ' 99.

T( OWARD the close of the academic year 1897-98 the alumni bodies of the various Colleges were united by the forma- tion of the " Associated Alumni of the University of California. " This organization is intended, in the words of its constitution, to " promote acquaintance and goodfellowship among the graduates, " " foster culture and professional training in California, ' ' and " promote the welfare of the University. " Control is vested in a representative " Council of the Associated Alumni, " the members of which are elected by the departmental alumni associations at the same time and in the same manner as their other officers, and serve for three years. The number of representatives is limited to twenty-one, and they are to be appor- tioned among the various departmental alumni organizations every five years, as nearly as possible in proportion to the number of living graduates, each department being entitled to at least one. There are but twenty members of the Council at present, however, no representative having been sent as yet by the Veterinary department. The officers of the Council are elected at an annual meeting. By this organization a real, genuine, universal alumni rally is made possible. Accordingly, a General Alumni Lunch, to be held annually on the afternoon of Commencement Day, has been arranged for.

The most noticeable feature of the year in the work of this body of Berkeley Graduates, outside of the adjusting of functions between itself and the newer and wider organization of the graduates of all the colleges comprising the University, was the appointment of an Alumni committee to co-operate with the undergraduates in matters in which the latter are interested. By means of this committee, of which Warren Gregory, ' 87, Francis Dunn, ' 85, H. B. Torry, ' 95, Wm. Denman, ' 95, and M. C. Flaherty, ' 96, are members, there is hope of coming into closer relations with the undergraduate students. During the year the Association has been enabled, by the satisfactory state of its finances, to guarantee the payment of the full amount of the Le Conte Fellowship, $500, in future years. By the appointment of Hon. Geo. C. Pardee, of Oakland, another enthusiastic member of the Alumni Association has been added to the Board of Regents. Officers 1898-99. President Dr. A. A.

This organization of Alumni and Graduate Students was established in August, 1897, for the purpose of arousing interest in the welfare and advancement of the Uni- versity, by the discussion of its problems and the methods employed by other universities in solving similar ones, and by co-operation with the various other organizations inter- ested in the progress of the University. About once a month public meetings are held, at which subjects of general University interest are discussed by speakers specially qualified or experienced. Nearly all of the papers read have been published in the University Magazine or University Chronicle. Officers 1898 - 99. President GEO. D. LOUDERBACK. Secretary and Treasurer ARTHUR W. GRAY.

I HE afternoon exercises were in the nature of a Chinese birthday festival, given by the Emperor and Court in honor of the " four-year-old Prince, Ki Yippi Ki Yi. " The class, in strictly Mongolian garb, formed in procession at East Hall and, traveling down to the lower campus, took their position on a platform in the big tent. Here, in gorgeous state, amid the pungent fumes of incense sticks and the deafening clash of a real Chinese band, the celebration took its course. The Emperor (Joe Leggett) and the Empress (Miss Marion Whipple) listened to the reports of the Prime Minister (Bert Allen) and the Astrologer (Leon Roos). They watched the antics of the court clowns ( " Biddy " Hoag, Jimmie Hopper, " Ewie " Brown, Johnnie McYey, Al. Lean and others). They acknowledged the repeated obeisances of the multi-colored court and listened to the congratulations of the ambassadors from far and near. (The phonographic messages from the German, Jurisprudence and Physics departments were undoubtedly the hits of the day.) The festivities closed with the report of the Lord High Executioner, who dispensed woe to certain luckless members of the class. The exercises broke up with the assemblage chanting the hymn : Wash-a-mala you? Wash-a-mala me? Wash-a-mala ninety-eight? Wash-a-mala we? 41 Twenty-ninth Commencement of University of California.

After a fervid history as Juniors, there comes a reaction a period of torpor and inactivity little short of dotage. The Class of 99 has just been enjoying this period. When they heard, amid great surprise, that Manager Franklin reported $150 in the treasury, a spirit of innocent contentment gently wafted them to sleep. The baseball tournament was the last sign of activity displayed, but in this the old athletic spirit, that seems to exist in some twenty men in that class more than in any equal number of men in college, carried the championship for 99. As an effort in somnambulism, the Senior Reception of November 2nd was a great success. The ice-cream was enjoyed very much by those who partook. (The Bay View and IAK frats suggest that hereafter it would be more convenient if ice- cream for all such affairs were put up in brick form rather than in five-gallon freezers, which are difficult to transport and hard to conceal.) Another social held in the second term of ' 99 ' s Seniorship proved the ability of that fortunate class to extract pleasure from its own society, and of some unprincipled outsiders to extract lemonade for home consumption. The ice-cream was left out of Christian pity for McPherson, Conn and Ede. who would have been prostrated by such a loss. In the gentle art of politics, the Class of 99 has several confirmed disciples of whom she may well be proud. If more attention were paid to the small, inconsequen- tial problems that arise, perhaps this deserving class might all succeed. It is bad for any institution to fall into a trance condition for an indefinite period of time, bad on the body as an organization, and injurious to its individual as well as constituent elements. It is not good policy to base class excellence on conquests and glories of the recent past, especially where there have been none. The Class of ' 99 is dying an unnatural death. Let us hope it will prepare for itself suitable funeral rites and exercises. A decent burial is always pleasing. Officers. FIRST TERM. Miss CORXEUA McKi.vKE, - President.

Vates Fred Gothe Jacobs IN the third year of their reign, the Class of 1900 settled down to the serious, mature business of rearing its youthful protege and in quietly attending to its traditional Junior undertakings. Two years of licensed and unlicensed vigor have given an experience that is based on class suc- . and a judgment in action that most becomes the prime of development. Besides, what need is there now for the sharp reproof and sad chastisement of other days ' ? 99 has waded the swamps of humiliation and has " promised to go softly the rest of her days. " while the Freshmen have not spared the chastening rod on ' 01, who exist only that they may fill a gap in the calendar. Gravity, calm, unruffled reason, and mature deliberation are the elements of success that have attended ' 00 in all her great undertakings this year. In the first place, every form of excitement has been avoided, as well as every unnecessary and vain-glorious demonstration. The BLUE AND GOLD was the center of an interesting and interested group of misguided aspirants for a short period, but even that gentle diversion soon sank, with some of its principal characters, into " innocuous desuetude. " The Junior Farce and Prom, were the successes of the term. Although some hearts yearned for the fragrant Gym., with its glassy floor and elegant reception rooms, it is safe to say that it was conducted with sanity under a waterproof roof and an unpatehed floor. The social given by the class in the second half-year was most satisfactory in ry respect, especially to those fortunate ones, who heard about it in time to attend. Hall, the home of College revelry, was the scene of this festivity. The undignified quarrel among the members of the last Junior Class, over liquor ads., was ingeniously avoided by the Lange lecture, given for financial ends under ' 00 auspices. It was this example, strengthened by its success, that has introduced a new custom into class activities, a custom which already is on the high-road toward dis- honorable mention with church fairs, fire sales, and other similar perpetrations. The Class of 1900 is not living on the glory of a vain retrospection, nor yet is she beating to a frenzy the atmosphere of college life in the attempt to prove her excellence. The authority gained in the past gives respect to the quiet wisdom of the present, and a prophecy of dignity and power for the future. It is the class of loyalty to University tradition, of independence and firmness of conviction, of rational, healthy and vigorous institutional development. Officers. FIRST TERM. EZRA W.

Junior Day. |T lacked but fifteen minutes before the time to open the doors. The crowd was increasing at an appalling rate. A big, round-faced man at the top of the stairs was calmly surveying the crowd below him. Somebody in the crowd stepped on another somebody ' s toes. " Will you kindly move on, sir? " said the victim. " With pleasure, whenever the doors open. " Finally something gave way, and we entered ; but how? With a rush that is unequalled in the history of the U. C. Onward ! upward ! downward! Some to the balcony, some to the dress circle, some to the boxes. Others to the balcony, and still others well, above the balcony. The program opened with a curtain raiser by Miss Minnie R. Wilson. The cast of characters was as follows: Harry Dayton, a Pi Phi MARK WHITE William Anderbury Courtlander, an initiate of the Amy Dayton, his sister Miss GERTRUDE JEWETT Pi Phi fraternity CARL PARKER Edgar Falklander, Amy ' s lover.. ..JOHN D. HOFFMAN EdithHollister,theinterestedfriend..MissFLORAWiLSON The scene was the Dayton garden, in Berkeley ' s classic shades, by moonlight. It was a comedy of errors. The frightened initiate, robed in white, was mistaken by Amy ' s ardent lover for Amy herself. Yes, love is blind. Amy was initiated into the Pi Phi ' s, and William Anderbury was proposed to, and neither knew just what was happening. The denouement was cleverly reached and very laughable. It well deserved the applause which resounded and rang long after the amateurs had left the stage. Then the worthy and honored prex of 1900, Ezra Decoto, delivered the Junior Day Address. He recounted the past victories won by 1900, pointed out those yet in store, and assured his assembled classmates of success in every undertaking. 48 The Junior Farce concluded the program. " His Wife ' s Will " was the title, and it was written by Miss Alice Duffy. It was cast as follows : Judge Tilden, in love with Jordannah Starr, PAUL SELBY Jerome Howard, a Berkeley student CARL PARKER Lieut. Clarton, U. S. V ERNEST OLIVER Mr. John Howard J. V. DE LAVEAGA Tacitus Converse, Professor at V. C W. W. MEK Rev. Luther Semmons HAROLD BRADLEY Harry, Jerome Howard ' s valet MARK WHITE Constance Tilden, devoted to the stage, Miss FLORA WILSON Elizabeth Tilden, devoted to Red Cross, Miss MATILDA RICHARDS Miss Margaret Tilden, sister to Judge Tilden, Miss GERTRUDE HAMPTON Jordannah Starr, Stanford co-ed., Miss GERTRUDE JEWETT Bessie, a maid, Miss LILLIAN NATHAN The scene is again laid in Berkeley, in the present time. " His Wife ' s Will " binds Judge Tilden not to marry again without the consent of his daughters, as long as they remain unmarried. The daughters, too, must obtain their fathers consent for a like action. Besides being interested in the love affairs of these three, Bessie, the maid, and Harry, the valet, have been weaving a little romance, and so matters become com- plicated. But the tangle is straightened and the Rev. Luther Semmons enjoys a huge fee from a quadruple wedding. The striking incidents and situations of the play, and the clever interpretation of the various characters were thoroughly appreciated by the audience. Committee of Arrangements. FRED. DORETY.

Ha-Ha! ttEY were a ghastly crew. HEN asked about the recent progress of his class, Mr. Sylvanus Cobb remarked hopefully, that it was " doing as well as ever, thank you. " It is probable that youthful modesty influenced the above guarded remark, but at all events, we must coincide that ' 01 shows decided signs of vitality. This new peculiarity is delightfully refreshing to those who have sadly watched over the lifeless class-body during the first year of its history. There is nothing fragrant nor edifying in that year of gloom and funeral incantations, and we will turn from it, as we shun all embalmed beef; but now there is a change. It is even rumored that at present, when a class meeting is called, some other purpose is in view than the outpouring of individual eloquence and hours of grandiloquence from some of its favorite sons. Although this statement is somewhat too much for human credulity, yet the fact remains that on several auspicious occasions, when Hecht, Cobb, Myers, Mulgrew and others were sick, some real class business was transacted. The first term of this year was spent by the class of ' 01 in discussing the sad plight of its exchequer. A social was given on October 15, and the usual Sophomore Hop occurred one week later. The Bourdon debt, added to the Social debt and the Hop debt, cast a dismal shade on these first two successful attempts of the re-vivified class. Deliverance did not come until finances had fallen into the last stages of paresis. A minstrel show was finally decided on, in some strange moment of temporary sanity, and Tully and " Swats " made it a success. Both of these prominent public-spirited men have since received flattering offers from the " Olympia. " The Sophomore class can be proud of the fact that it is still recognized as an identity. One year ago this was an impossibility. In the great universal battle of existence, it has learned, by the forceful logic of hard knocks, a few precepts from the bitter lesson of the survival of the fittest. With the aid of faculty favor, in the absence of the perverting, pernicious influences emanating from the present Senior class, when its own individual members have each attained one more year of progress toward maturity, then the Class of ' 01 may gain at last a dizzy pinnacle of eminence, may be, in fact, the third best class in the University.

C JR Freshmen have made history fully as rapidly as is consistent with Freshman subordination. They have a life and vigor and spontaneity in their action, a loyalty to due collectors and class assessments in their hearts, that puzzle the mind of the average Sophomore. Yet before ' 02 had been with us a fortnight, the class of ' 01 was re-taught the great lesson of love and respect. The first class meeting took place in Stiles Hall. Its principal features were the enthusiasm displayed and the attention given the pacifying remarks of Junior advisers, who, in their peaceful way, taught the value and sanctity of faculty rules against rushing. A practical demonstration of the sanity of such rules was forthwith given on the campus, in which ' 02 kindly assisted. The Y. M. C. A. extended the glad right hand in their usual Freshman Reception, and thus instituted a long list of class festivities. Several innocent class revels followed, the first of which was conducted by the ladies of ' 00. Its success was so great that two weeks later the class held a social on its own authority. This event reflected great and lasting credit on the account books, as well as on the social instincts of ' 02. The Freshie Glee was held beneath the crystal lights and stained glass windows of our dear old Gym. on the night of October 24. With characteristic boldness, and contrary to all known precedent, many of the Freshmen attended. The crowing glory of our Freshman achievements this year was the football victory over our contemporaries at Palo Alto. It is to be regretted that the stirring words of our virtuous Colonel, counseling moderation and cold water, were not heard before this little score of 21 to 0. Thus far the second term of ' O2 ' s existence has been a series of committee appoint- ments, discussions and class meetings, concerning what remains of our Bourdon burial. The first term ' s existence of the class of ' 02 was marked by greater public life, more open resistance to oppression, whether from the faculty, or foreign football material, and by a livelier, brighter social career than usually falls to the lot of only freshmen. Success and confidence has already given a dignity and bearing and a self- contentment that is nobly illustrated by THIS term ' s absolute inactivity. First Term Officers. RUSSELL S.

I HE University of California is becoming imbued with the idea that careful, thorough, and systematic organization of her athletic teams will lead to an un- broken list of victories. Triumphs on the collegiate gridiron, cinderpath and diamond are no longer won by the meteoric ability of an athletic genius, who in times past has individually performed the work of an entire team and brought victory where defeat seemed inevitable. For years California ' s athletic career consisted in the development of a star a Ransome or a Hall and not in the training of an entire team banded together with a unity of purpose. Last Thanksgiving, when Captain Hall led his men on the field, he was the same brilliant player upon whom California had showered all her praises ; but instead of having to perform the work of eleven men, Captain Hall was one of eleven stars, each capable of doing his share toward the desired goal. Our Track Team was a conspicuous example of what a thoroughly organized team can do administering to Stanford one of the worst defeats she has ever known. Our baseball nine showed more team work, and resembled a real baseball team more than any that ever represented the Blue and Gold. The scores of the last series well show that even after the games were over it would be very difficult for an unbiased person to pick the better team. During the last three years the result of the intercollegiate tennis games has never been in doubt, for Stanford has not been in the same class with California in this sport. It is to be hoped that, since our rival has some good material in this branch now, the annual tennis match will be more closely contested. Of the four athletic contests of the year, California won three by such scores that even the most ardent Stanford enthusiast must hang his head in silence at the mention of tennis, track and football. In regard to baseball well they won. We have always fared well in the spring contests, but a victory in the ball, in what Stanford has always chosen to remind us was the recognized college sport of America, has been the goal of California ' s athletic ambition. Our hopes were realized on Thanksgiving day, 1898, far beyond our expectations. With Percy Hall on the field and Garrett Cochran on the side lines, California ' s goal was never in danger. Let every loyal student, that ever came to Berkeley, always hold dear the name of Garrett Cochran, the coach, and Percy Hall, the captain of California ' s first victorious team. On Christmas day, our team, without any practice since Thanksgiving, demon- strated by the score of 27 to to the people of the Northwest that California pos- sesses the best football team ever produced on the coast. The last season was an important one to Berkeley, but the coming season will be of far more importance. We have shown that it is possible for California to win, but we have a more arduous task before us this year. A defeat in 1899 would show that last year ' s victory was due to the laws of chance at last California ' s turn. A victory will show that, though California sustained defeat after defeat she worked with in- domitable courage, and that the game last year, instead of being California ' s turn to win, was California ' s right to win by her own efforts. Having tasted the glories of victory, and knowing the causes that lead thereto, California should leave nothing to her rival save the memories of victories long gone by. EVERETT J. BROWN. 82 Athletic Association of the University of California. L URING the year athletics at the University have been placed on a firmer basis and their management made more business-like by the reorganization of the A. A. U. C. By the new constitution, any of the graduates, undergraduates, or faculty may become members of the Association by paying the current dues. A paid and bonded treasurer is given the custody of the moneys of the Association, and required to publish approxi- mate reports monthly, and to make complete reports to the Executive Committee in February and September. The various branches of athletic activity are brought into harmony by the centralization of control in the Executive Committee, to whom all managers are responsible. This committee is composed of the president, secretary, treasurer and various managers, all elected by the Association ; the captains, elected by the teams; a representative from the Boat Club, and the Director of Physical Culture. During the year the Association h as had Mr. Garrett Cochran and Mr. Joe Corbett as coaches for the football and baseball teams respectively, and Mr. Al. Lean as trainer. Officers of the Association: President, R. H. HUTCHINSON, ' 99. Secretary, DUNCAN McDcFFiE, " 99. Treasurer, IRVING C. ALLEN, ' 99. Faculty Representative, GEO. C. EDWARDS, " 73. Football Manager, I.

THE sun setting in the west ; the vague melancholy of dusk creeping over the campus. From the field the rush and precipitated tramp of feet ; the dull thud of body against body ; smothered exclamations and, rising at times, a shrill cry : " Harder ! Harder! " The men are tired; the practice has been long and hard. But they know they are nearing the end and are playing now with the vision of the grateful drip of the showers on their burning, pounded bodies. Harder ! Harder ! Spurred on by this cry, which seems to have singular effect on them, the Varsity tears and bounds through the second eleven and over the line. From the bleachers, slightly drawling with the melancholy of the dying day, male voices rise softly : Here ' s to you, Garry Cochran, here ' s to you, my jovial friend ! A brilliantly lighted hall, festooned in blue and gold. A glittering table strewn with golden-hued chrysanthemums. Around the table thirty stalwart men, aglow with some nameless joy, terrible in its intensity; good, strong, square faces, ornamented here and there by a black eye or a skinned nose. The skinned noses glow with joy, and even the black eyes are resplendent. One feels a suppressed ebullition of boundless enthusiasm and joy and exultation. At the head of the table an empty chair, the center of expectant attention. The glasses are full of liquid gold, untouched as yet. A cry from the door : " There he comes ! " He enters. Thirty men jump to their feet, the glasses rise in a tinkle and, deep, rumbling with suppressed emotion, out of tune but terribly in earnest, a roar rises : Here ' s to you, Garry Cochran, here ' s to you, my jovial friend ! This is the secret of his success : He united all, faculty and student-body ; man and woman; prof., student, co-ed, dig, bum, janitor, police all in one cry: " Here ' s to you, Garry Cochran ! " And to you, Garry Cochran, the football men gave all their strength and ardor and self-sacrifice to be welded by you into a force irresistible. And to you, Garry Cochran, the college gave enthusiasm and faith unbounded. But how did he determine such a movement ? Well, first, for the football men I will answer : H e k n e w we had unbounded faith in his ability to lead us to victory. Garry was not a vulgar, physical athlete. He had raised the game to a science. The style of play, the formations, the slightest action of each man were based on scientific principles. He was a rare combination of thought and action. Living during the French Revolution, he would have become a Ney or a Murat. He knew and hence we had faith. He was our Napoleon. Secondly, I will answer for both the football men and the college at large : He was one of us. His ardent love for old Princeton, the spirit which had led him to play in the Yale game with a broken shoulder, was too vast to confine itself to mere pensive memories. It needed to vent itself in action. No longer able to love Princeton actively, he transferred part of this unbounded love to California, where this spirit could act. As he said himself, " A man has only one Alma Mater. Mine is Princeton, but she has a sister and that is California. " He had more college spirit for California than any of us. He did not flash past us with a sneer of contempt and a crack of the whip and off again without leaving a trace of his passage. He sympathized with our disappoint- ments, our past disasters and our hopes. He did not think it ridiculous to have been unsuccessful. He felt our past defeats as keenly as any of us and put the whole of his indomitable energy to the task of retrieving the name of California. Add to this more personal qualities which made him the idol of the football men inflexible justice; the kindness and patience of the true gentleman; a father-like solicitude to our needs, and perhaps you will know Garry Cochran. I doubt it: JAMES HOPPER. c " ' I i T o 1 If wtr- s 5 O j u 2 .2 !f bt s 3 = . OR the first time in its history the BLUE AND GOLD can, in summing up the football season, credit California with the larger end of the score in both Varsity and Freshman games. This year has shown us the inestimable value of team work on the part of both football men and students at large. Without detracting in the least from the honor due our victorious team, it is safe to say that, without the support given by the student body, the score would have been less one-sided. Throughout the entire season, there has been that harmony between captain, managers, coaches and players which has been such a lamentable minus quantity in our previous football history. The causes of the successful season lie, to a great extent, in the conscientious work of Captain Hall, and in the efficient coaching of Garrett Cochran, neither of whom have spared themselves in the least in making the football season of ' 98 what it was, a success.

The eleven which would play in the great Thanksgiving game had been chosen. The boys had all trained hard and faithfully, and up to this evening, the evening before the game, we had, as we were told, with an unequaled coach and captain, made ' an unparalleled record. We had not been scored against during the season. But it was this very fact that made us rather doubtful of the next day ' s issue. We had started in with too good luck. Despite our twen- tieth century ideas, we could not drive the thought from us that, perhaps, at best, this good luck had been but a ruse of Providence whereby we might be the more severely defeated on the morrow. I remember very well the fate of one un- fortunate member of the training quarters, who inadvertently chanced to make a remark intimating our probable to- morrow ' s defeat. He had no more than spoken the words when a dozen or more frowning faces were turned toward him, which indicated more plainly than words that his silence was preferable to the jingle of his empty cranium. The night was spent at the training quarters. We were to retire at 8:30. As we parted to go to bed, every fellow made it a point to aver that he was not nervous in the least, but it was clearly evident, by his reversed attitude, as it were, toward things in general, that his mind was not alto- gether at rest. You can imagine how we rested. Those of us that were not making touch-downs were kicking goals, tackling Murphy or some other unhappy member of that " Quad-nurt- ured " team. As for myself, I am quite sure that I never broke through PR1NGI.K AND WHll ' PLE. 90 so many lines, or blocked so many kicks, in one night before ; far more than I ever did while I trod on terra firma, instead of airy nothingness. The next morning the boys were all down to breakfast bright and early some of them at four, but they were not in the least nervous. After breakfast we went for a walk. Now, perhaps, some of my readers will smile at the idea of any one, in our day, becoming superstitious. But superstition is as much a part of a man ' s make-up as any other feeling. Do what you will to suppress it, it will " out. " The first person we met, as we went out that morning, was a " coon. " No sooner had the darky come into sight, than our captain and two others, with all the gravity of monks, immediately removed their caps and proceeded to spit in them three times; meanwhile the ' coon ' went merrily on his way, little conscious of the consternation he had caused. Just what this expectora- tive process signified has always remained a mystery to me ; but, at the time, I had no difficulty in admit- ting to myself that was the proper thing to do, on such an oc- casion, especially since the captain did it. After the walk we were told that the coach would like to see each one of us privately. In we filed, one by one, for our tete-a-tete with every man, as he came out, had a much graver air than when he went in. My turn came at last. Just what the coach said in detail I can not remember, but at any rate, the impor- tance of my position was thoroughly im- pressed upon me, and I was made to understand that the success or failure of to-day ' s game de- pended entirely on me. With this con- viction I left the coach. I was sur- prised to find after- wards that it was with a similar con- viction that every other member of the team left him. Garry. I noticed that Not long after this interview we took the electric cars for Oakland and boarded the little steam launch Reliance, which had been hired that we might avoid the general crowd. There was a heavy sea on that day, and, of course, for one of our number to get seasick, just before the game, was a rather serious matter. None of us were particularly afraid of this except our right end. He was sure he would be sick. Poor fellow ! He got across alright, but between his imagination and the actual rolling of the vessel the peristaltic movements were not easily kept in control. After a quarter of an hour ' s hard jolting through the streets of San Francisco, we were safely landed in the dressing rooms of Recreation Park. A large crowd had 91 already collected on the bleachers, as the game had been called for 2 p. M., and it was now past one. But there was still something for us, before we should make our appearance on the gridiron. The coach took a position in the middle of the room and started to speak to us. This speech no, not speech, appeal may seem cold, even laughable to you now, but if you had heard it as it came from a man whose lips trembled, whose eyes were dimmed with emotion and earnestness, perhaps your opinion would be different. Here is the appeal, as best I can reproduce it : " Boys, this is the opportunity of your lives. A grander opportunity to immortalize your names, to stamp them indelibly upon the pages of the history of your University, has never been given you. For eight long years have those lobster-backs made you bite the dust. It is your turn now. Make them bite, and bite hard. Play, every one of you, until you drop in your tracks ; and when you can ' t play any longer, we ' ll put another man in your place. If you are repulsed once, come at them again, harder. Just think what it means ! Here are twenty thousand people to watch you ! Your whole college is here, and they expect you to win. " (Here his voice commenced to grow husky.) " Some of you have mothers and fathers and sisters here to-day. Yes, boys, some of you have sweethearts here, who are wishing and praying that you may win. Play, fellows, play for their sakes. Let your motto be, ' Hit ' em again, harder, harder ! ' " To say that this talk had moved us would be to put it too mildly. Every fellow in that Eleven, as he got up to go on to the gridiron, did so with a firm determi- nation, deep down in his heart, to win that game or die. And who would not have died for his University that day? But all this valor and loyalty was soon to be severely shaken. As we went out to line up on the gridiron, for signal practice, before the game, we could see our opponents at the other end of the field. My ! how big they looked ! How quickly they went through their signals ! How Murphy could kick that ball ! They had won for eight years ; what was going to stop them now ? Let me assure you that I, for one, almost wished that I were home, and that such a game as football had never been invented. By some inexplicable way, when first we lined up, the right guard was playing left and the left right. It was some time before we realized what was wrong, and with considerable chagrin proceeded to straighten ourselves out. I also noted that, when the game was called, my knees suddenly commenced to play tag ; indeed, they played so hard, I found it difficult to walk steadily. Whether I was the only one affected in this way, I know not, but at all events quite a number ex- pressed themselves as having been unable to hold on to the ball, and such things as that. But three or four downs sufficed to knock all this unsteadiness out of us. The game was called ; things were progressing nicely. We had worked the pig-skin down to Stanford ' s two-yard line. It surely looked as if we were about to demonstrate to our opponents that eight years of defeat had not made nine- pins of us after all. But just here, and in less time than it takes me to write it, we lost the ball. Murphy, Stanford ' s famous quarterback, had gotten the ball on a fumble and was going toward our goal with the speed of a hare, with Hall and Smith close behind him. Our hearts turned sick ! Despair was pictured in our faces ! Were all our efforts to be in vain ? Would Hall overtake him ? Such 92 were the thoughts which crowded themselves upon us in quick succession, as we stood there bewilderedly gazing on a race, to us, as it were, between life and death. The wild cheers from the rooters, which always greet the football player ' s ear more sweetly than the music of the spheres, were the answer to our questions. After a run of eighty yards, Hall had downed the Stanford hero. With renewed vigor we took up the work again. Our opponents made a noble struggle to advance the ball, but were compelled to yield. Slowly, but irresistibly, we carried the ball toward the red-shirts ' goal, ending the first half with a score, in our favor, of 6 to 0. The interim between the halves was spent in repairs and congratulations. Our coach Cochran tried to frown and say, " Harder, boys, ATHKARN, CORNISH AND C,K KISIJKKG. harder! " Even Professor Magee felt that he must relieve himself. He politely begged our pardon (which we granted) for using forcible language in commenting on the half, then proceeded to avail himself of his opportunity. I can no better describe the sensation produced by the smiling face of Cadwalader than to say that it burst forth on us with the pleasing effect of a water-melon, with a slice taken out of it ; while his affectionate love-pats fairly made you gasp for breath. The second half was much to our opponents ' discredit. California had grown confident at Stanford ' s expense. Three or four of Stanford ' s best men had been forced to retire, for reasons, perhaps, more potent than they dared to admit. All this tended to encourage our boys. Aside from Al. Lean ' s threat to thrash the umpire, the half was hardly exciting. When the official dared to interfere with 94 our spunky, little trainer in the proper performance of his duties, he was promptly answered something like this : " You go to ! I ' ll wrap Percy Hall ' s ankle whether you like it or not. See? " It is needless to add that Al. wrapped the ankle. Outside of this little episode, the half was but a successi on of touch- downs. The wild yelling, mingled with weeping and wailing, together with the figures on the pected, but score board, 22 we might as formance would honor of this vic- seem quite natu- KAARSBBRO AND THANE. tor y with the ral, even ex- silent and un- pretentious worker, who never lost hope in the team, as a whole, and took every opportunity to cheer us on to better work.

I I ORE attention has been given to the cultivation of team work than ever before, and a glance at the victories secured by the Freshman team will show that the extra effort was not lost. The game put up by the Freshmen often approached Varsity form, and, in the contest with the Stanford Freshmen, they set a mark, above which the Varsity team did well to go. Although much praise is to be bestowed on Cochran for their successes, too much cannot be said in commendation of the work of Captain Smith, who gave the team much of his own fearless and dashing style of play.

Stanford was outclassed, her team making their distance but once. 97 I HE season of 1898 was certainly a most successful one for the Track Team. Replete throughout with splendid per- formances, it found a fitting close in the memorable 88 to 38 victory over Stanford, and in the winning on April 30 of the championship of the Pacific Coast. The University Field-day of April 2 will long be remembered for the high standard of its performances. On this occasion Hoffman replaced Dole ' s coast record by vault- ing eleven feet ; Walsh made a University record of 7 minutes 24 seconds in the walk, and Brought on one of 22 feet 9 inches in the broad jump. In the Intercollegiate Field-day he added half an inch to this, and in the Championship Field-day set a new coast record of 23 feet 4 inches. Another notable performance of the year was Drum ' s great record of 342 5 seconds for the 314|-yard circuit of the track. No student at California is likely ever to forget the Intercollegiate Field-day of ' 98 : Drum ' s easy victories and the final burying of Brunton ; Carroll ' s gritty game-leg running ; Westerfeld ' s graceful sharing of honors with his sick team-mate, Walsh ; the total eclipse of Stanford ' s heavy men, and 88 to 38; these, surely, are for college immortality. The team trained regularly during the autumn of ' 98, a few informal try-outs concluding the work. Track Team of 1899- J. D. HOFFMAN, P. J. FRANKLIN, Captain. Manager.

' REVIOUS numbers of the BLUE AND GOLD have been unanimously quiet upon this subject, and indeed the sport itself is not .very prominent among College interests. The basket ball players make little noise in College between games and the manage- ment has not made very vigorous endeavors to bring the game to the notice of the College as a whole. We think the apathy of the men students in regard to the game has been overestimated, and that, if a determined effort were made, a number of them would be found to have sufficient College spirit to purchase tickets and attend the games. Although the indoor pig-skin chasers do not strive for the glaring publicity which so delights their brethren of the football field, the University of California team occupies a proud position in basket ball circles an eminence so lofty that they can uniformly dictate the conditions on which others may contest with them, and just as uniformly emerge victorious from the struggles in which they engage. While we regret that intercollegiate contests seem impossible, unless Stanford will recede from her unreasonable position and consent to our conditions, we all feel that it is real mean of her to so persistently put forward the claim that it is now our turn to concede something a claim so clearly advantageous to herself.

Otherwise considered, we have reason to remember it, for then, first, Cochran ' s own enthusiasm seemed to be getting a firm hold in the spirit of every college man. In the deciding game, when we were beaten 6 to 5, no one can say that lack of rooting lost the game. The only trouble was, it came too late in the season. With the experience gained from recent football events, we are forewarned, and it will never be said again that college-spirit is a meaningless term in California baseball. Team of 1898.

The formation and success of a tennis club among the young ladies of the College is a pleasing evidence both of the interest taken in tennis at California and of the interest of the young ladies in athletics. The courts of the. club Were opened some weeks ago, and the club is now in a flourishing condition. The officers are: President ------ Miss MINNIE WILSON, ' 00. Secretary Miss ETHEL WAGNER, ' 00.

It was started primarily for the purpose of racing Stanford. Stanford then gave assurance that she would race us, but has since declined all offers, and we have been forced to content our- selves with interclass regattas, interclass swimming races, and a few races with outside clubs. The club possesses pleasure boats as well as racing boats. It owns its own house on Sessions Basin, from which a better course is had for rowing than from any other club house around the bay. Besides offering an opportunity for boating, the water is excellent for swimming.

Wi ITH five hundred and seventy-three cadets, the University of California stands next to the national academies at West Point and Annapolis, as the largest military college in the United States. Nor does it excel in numbers alone. The annual inspec- tion held last May found us ranking among the best, and the inspecting officer, Major Field, was unstinted in his praise of the drill, discipline and general appearance of our corps. Of the sixty colleges in the United States which include military drill in their curriculum, forty-two are recipients of generous endowments from the national government. California receives an annual income of about $43,000 from this source. This encouragement is given in order that, without having a large standing army, our country may at all times be prepared for war. California nobly returned the generosity of the government by sending to the late war with Spain seventy- seven officers and enlisted men. At the annual inspection held in May, an exhibition and competitive drill was given, in which the honors were carried off by Company G, commanded by Captain Volney Craig. At the competitive drill held at the end of the last semester, Company B, commanded by Captain Wm. H. Houston, was the successful contestant for the honors. The war deprived us of our former commandant, First Lieutenant Sydney A. Cloman, who was made the head of the com- missary department at Manila. Professor Frank Soule, a graduate of West Point and the head of the department of Civil Engineering, has taken his place, until a regular army officer can be appointed. BICYCLE CORPS. 116 Officers.

At the first call for volunteers, all outward circumstances seemed against an active participation in the war by a large number of men from this University. But California men were not to be daunted by hostile conditions, and, before fight- ing began in earnest, four-score students and alumni of California were bearing arms on land or sea. Wherever America ' s forces have gathered in hostile array in this year of conflict, whether in the Philippines, in Hawaii, in the garrisons of our western coast, in the camps of the East, in the West India squadron, or on the battle-fields of Cuba, in every place a son of our Alma Mater has stood among them. The gallant conduct of the many students now fighting in the Philippines makes it impossible to hope to give a complete account of the honors and promotions of our University men. There are already, however, a goodly number to record. E. A. Selfridge, Jr., was promoted from lieutenant to captain for his gallant conduct in rallying the men of the 71st New York Volunteers before the heights of San Juan. Lieutenant Robert McCleave, of the Regulars, was commended for distinguished gallantry in the attack on San Juan. Lieutenant W r right was for a time acting captain in the Regulars, and T. C. Rethers, in the same branch of the service, has added a bar to his second lieutenant ' s straps. Earnest Dozier was promoted by General Merritt from corporal to first sergeant for his bravery during the attack on Manila. Henry Mathewson and I. C. Boss have been made sergeants. E. G. McCleave, E. T. Smith, and M. H. Miller have won corporal ' s chevrons. Before the first expedition sailed to Manila, our Commandant, Lieutenant Cloman, had become Major of Volunteers. The Class of 1900 sent twenty-three men to the war, nearly three times as many as any of its rivals. Of the representatives of the College, thirty-eight per cent, were commissioned officers, twenty-two per cent, non-commissioned officers, and forty per cent, privates. Out of the blare of trumpets and the cheers of victory, comes a sad note of mourning. On board the transport Scandia, on his way to Manila, Fred G. Jacobs, of the Class of 1900, was taken fatally ill with typhoid fever, a result of the duties as nurse which he had performed on shore. He is the only one of our University boys the price of whose loyalty has been death. 123 The Roll of Honor. NAME. CLASS. RANK. ORGANIZATION. REG. OR VOL.

" Since 1895 no university in the country of such rank as that of California has had our successes. This can not be attributed to the inferiority of opposing contestants, but to the traditional debating superiority of our University. With success, has come an increase in the interest in debating and an elevation of its standard. The University has now before it Professor Gayley ' s plan of establishing an institution similar to the Oxford Union. The subject is receiving wide attention; correspondents to the different University journals are unanimous in the desire to see a similar organization, but differ as to the details suitable to American universities. Student Congress. During the year, no more enthusiasm has been shown than by the Student Congress. There has been an increase in attendance and also in debating criterions. Several years ago, brilliant oratorical displays were seen, while now both argument and rhetoric are combined. If anything is distinctive of the Congress, it is its argumentative skill. Two of the three men of this year ' s Carnot Team were members of the body. A system of term debates with the Hastings Debating Society has been established. The system has assumed considerable importance, having given a stimulus to the debaters of the Law College to enter the preliminaries of the intercollegiate contests. As the Congress is the consolidation of all the old debating societies of the University, it has taken up the absorbing question of the Oxford Union. It is in favor of the scheme and has appointed a committee to carry it into effect. In response to the favorable acceptance of the plan, the Academic Council has taken semi-official action in appointing a committee, consisting of Professors Gayley, Slate, Jones and Ritter, to act with the alumni and undergraduates. The alumni have appointed their Council as their representatives. The Annual Banquet took place at the California Hotel, San Francisco, December 9, 1898. Officers for Second Half of 1898.

The need for such an organization had long been felt, and the women students, anxious to remedy their lack of training in forensics, supported the movement. A committee immediately drew up a constitution which was adopted at the next meeting. It provided for a council, modelled upon the plan of the House of Representatives. Two functionaries were placed at the head a president and a secretary. In order to give wide experience in argumentation, the bi-monthly meetings of the society alternate with open and set debates. In the open debate?, the two leaders appointed by the chair choose ten assistants each, while the set ones are carried on in the customary manner with three speakers on a side. The discussions are never allowed to exceed forty minutes. All topics for the council are chosen by a standing committee of three. Officers. President, Miss AGNES FRISICS, tl.

T HE Freshman Debating Society, following the Freshman societies of the Eastern Universities, was organized in September, 1898. for the development of Freshman de- bating material. It meets at Stiles Hall, and its membership, at present, numbers forty. At every meeting a debate is held, papers are read, and extemporaneous addresses made. As a result of the society ' s activity, Freshman debating has been considerably raised, an excellent augury for future University debating. Officers. MONROE E. DECTSCH, President i J. M.

Freshman-Sophomore Debate. WHEN the annual Freshman-Sophomore Debate was inaugurated last year, it was feared that the institution would not be a success. The excellent work in this year ' s contest, and interest exhibited, proved the fears were groundless. The institution was a good one and will be continued. The details of the debate are : Question Resolved, that the Initiative and Refer- endum should be adopted in California in State Legislation. Affirmative: Freshmen Monroe E. Deutsch, Jewett J. Earle, Alexander Adler. Negative: Sophomores Ralph T. Fisher, Archibald B. Rhuart, J. W. S. Butler. Decision was given in favor of the negative. At Stiles Hall, December 2, 1898. CARL M. WARNKR. Intercollegiate Debating. THE student supervision of debating has been lodged this year in the hands of the California University Debating Committee. Under the resolutions of the Associated Students last year, they were given nearly unlimited power to act. Their policy, for the most part, has been to maintain our old traditional debating lines. California University Debating Committee. WILLIAM T. MOONEY, Chairman. JOSEPH O ' CONNOR. W. BOUTWELL DUNLAP. Intercollegiate Debate of 1898. IN the Intercollegiate Debate of ' 98, never was such enthusi- asm displayed by the general public the overcrowded Metro- politan Temple in contrast to the earlier years, when only the debaters and friends of the debaters appeared to witness forensic contests. Never in the history of debating has there been such a complete and overwhelming victory both in argument and delivery. The victory was decisive, because the debate was on a subject chosen by Stanford, and one on which the California speakers were entirely non-informed when it came. All the debaters were well known in intercollegiate contests. Overstreet had been the winner of the Carnot in ' 97. Both Dannenbaum and Clark had been members of the Carnot Team of ' 97. The details of the debate are: Question Resolved, that the system of unrestricted production of prison-made goods, for sale in the open market on the public account, is preferable as a system of prison management, to that which is in operation in the State of New York. Affirmative: HARRY A. OVERSTREET, ARTHUR J. DANNENBAUM, GEORGE CLARK, of California. Negative: A. B. MORGAN, G. G. BAILIE, JAMES FERGUSON, of Stanford. Presiding Officer: DAVID STARR JORDAN. Committee of Award: HON. C. H. GARROUTTO, GEN. N. P. CHIPMAN, W. M. PIERSON, ESQ. Decision was given in favor of the affirmative. At Metropolitan Temple, San Francisco, April 23, 1898. Carnot Debate of 1899- THE California Carnot debaters were this year supported greater than ever before by our University a special train having been run to Stanford, carrying our contingent. The debate itself was won entirely upon the superior argument of California ' s representative. Warner, the winner, had not debated in any of the inter-society or intercollegiate Preliminaries. His only experience was as a member for one term of the Forensic Class. Martin had been a member of his Sophomore team in the 1900- 1901 Debate, and had made his way to the Finals in the ' 98 Inter- collegiate Preliminaries. He is a member of the Student Congress. Cloud had been a member of the Student Congress and the Forensic Class. The details of the debate are : Question Resolved, that it is for the best interests of France to form a close alliance with Italy. Affirmative: JOHN E. SPRINGER, W. M. MARTIN, ANTHONY H. SUZZALLO. Negative: A. J. CLOUD, CARL T. HAYDEN, CARL M. WARNER. Chairman: PROFESSOR BRANNER, of Stanford University. Committee of Award: THE REV. J. K. MCLEAN, E. J. McCuTCHEN, ESQ., VANDERLYN SNOW, ESQ. Medal was awarded to Carl M. Warner, of the University of California.

Unsupported that is the great negative attribute of our College papers at present. Unsupported by those who do not read them ; often by those who do. Unsupported by any considerable body of student writers: for many students do not realize that their first literary efforts are not apt to take the world by storm; while an equal number, whose English is sometimes impossible and whose knowledge of the technicalities of the work is nil, scorn to serve an apprenticeship in newspaperdom. Unsupported by the faculty, who, ever ready to crush an offending editor in his success, almost never trouble themselves to aid an unoffending one in his extremities. But not all the picture is darkened by forbidding clouds. All through the past there has been brightness: and now, even in the blackest of them, new rifts appear, letting in a light of encouragement and " hope. More students are trying to write ; they are trying more frequently ; and consequently more are succeeding. There is now a tendency, in stories, sketches and poems, to take simple subjects and treat them thoroughly, rather than to attempt Shakespearean subjects and fail to treat them at all. The faculty and alumni have come quite close together in the MAGAZINE. When its editor grasps each of them firmly and takes a long stride towards the students, there will be cause for rejoicing. During the present term every one of the University publications has improved decidedly. And, best of all, there exists a very strong determination never to stop while possibility of advancement remains. 131 The University of California Magazine. I HE University of California MAGAZINE was established in March, 1895, as a monthly University publication. It aims to serve as an exponent of under- graduate thought, as well as a medium between alumni, student and instructing bodies. It is the official organ of the Alumni Association and the Council of the Associated Alumni, and at present fulfills most of the functions of an alumni magazine. THE MAGAZINE, during the last year, has been marked by the greater promi- nence given to alumni matters, and the introduction of regular illustrations. A few of the prominent features, besides the special Benefactors ' Number, issued on Charter Day, 1899, have been articles by Thomas R. Bacon on " Imperial Responsi- bilities; " " A Suggestion from Oxford to California, " by Charles Mills Gayley ; " The Presidential Question, " by Leon M. Solomons, ' 93; " College Settlements, " by Dr. E. C. Moore; " The Drama on Modern England, " by L. Dupont Syle, and " German Universi- ties, " by Mellen W. Haskell. Monthly during the College year.

The chief function of the OCCIDENT is the free and unqualified expression of student opinion upon all student affairs. Through the successful maintenance of this function, it has won an unique place among the college papers of the country, as well as among the students of our own University. Such being its function, the OCCIDENT is independent of all affiliations, societies or sects. The guiding policy of its Editorial department is alert interest to whatever concerns the welfare of the University and the Student Body. In its Literary department, it gives the opportunities for publica- tion to the students inclined towards literature, and has maintained a high standard of excellence, numbering among its contributors the most gifted graduate and u nder- graduate writers of the University. During the Spring term a " Prize-story Contest " was held which proved so eminently successful that, beginning with the college year 1899-1900, the OCCIDENT will, with the sanction of the Associated Students, guarantee at least fifty dollars in prizes, each year, for the " University of California Prize Literary (stories, poems and vignettes) Contest. " In the Fall term, a " Prize Yell Contest, " " Yell Supplements " and special foot-ball editions, illustrated by half-tones, greatly enhanced the value and interest of the paper. Departmental stories and sketches with college application, such as " Side Talks with Freshmen, " " The Skull Philosopher. " and " Fables for Freshmen, " etc., etc., give the paper a tone that is essentially collegiate. The News department is a carefully condensed review of the week ' s happenings in and about college. The Athletic department attempts to give a critical estimate and comment upon the various athletic interests of the University. In the College World, or Exchange department, are discussed problems of general college interest and application. Opportunities for art work, in story illustration, have also been offered with successful results. Editors (First Term). STUART G. MASTERS. TO, Editor-in-Chief.

It is essentially a newspaper, aiming to keep its readers informed of all that takes place in the colleges at Berkeley and to give in addition an account of the more important happenings in other universities, East and West. During the present term, full accounts of the doings of the Regents have been added to its usual news reports. The illustrated special editions of the CALIFORNIAN have become a feature of our college journalism. They are issued just before each of the leading athletic contests with Stanford and are profusely illustrated with half-tones. While the editors endeavor to let no happening of general interest to the students or Faculty go unnoticed, they keep the welfare of the University constantly in view. This results in giving a somewhat conservative tone to both news and editorial depart- ments. The dominating characteristic of the former is an energetic pursuit of news; of the latter, a calm consideration of the happenings of the day. Officers of the Californian Publishing Company.

University Chronicle. N IDEST in scope and foremost in general interest among the publications of the faculty is the University Chronicle. It was established in February, 1898, and has been issued six times a year. The contents of each number are ordinarily drawn from the events of the two months preceding the date of publication. Reports of addresses delivered by members of the faculty, or by distinguished visitors to the University, constitute the bulk of the reading matter. Prominent among those that have appeared are the following Professor James ' address at Commencement, May, 1898, " The Function of the Modern University and its Relation to Modern Life; " Professor Joseph Le Conte ' s paper on " The Origin of Transvere Mountain-valleys and Some Glacial Phenomena in Those of the Sierra Nevada, " read in 1898 before the Science Association of the University and the Academy of Sciences; lectures on historical and economic subjects by Professors Moses, Bacon and Plehn, and on " The English Essay " by Professor Bradley. Each increase in University equipment is noted in detail. Every number of the Chronicle contains an excellent summary of current happenings. Professor Moses is chairman of the Editorial Committee. Erythea. Erythea, edited by Willis Linn Jepson, Instructor in Botany, and now in its seventh volume, is the only botanical journal in Western America and one of four such in the New World. It is devoted to every department of botanical investiga- tion and criticism. Its articles are in all cases original and for the most part represent results of investigations upon Pacific Coast plants, though reviews of literature relating to Western America botany also appear. It serves to interest local workers in botanical progress and to form a record of botanical activity. Weekly Bulletin. An exceedingly useful sheet is the W T eekly Bulletin, which had its beginning in the present year. It is issued each Monday under the direction of Professor Stringham, and contains a list of the special events which are planned to take place in the University during the week, with the place, day and hour of each. Here may be found notices of all Faculty and Regents meetings and of public lectures under University auspices. is. I HE University of California Musical Asso- ciation was organized a year ago in March, 1898. It absorbed in its general organization the Uni- versity of California Glee Club, an organization of eight years ' standing, the Banjo Club, and the Mandolin Club, each of which had been formed and directed by Mr. C. R. Morse, 96, and were about a year old at that time. It was recognized as a University organization by the Associated Students and granted the use of the University name. At the beginning of the second semester, the organization was much crippled by graduations and absences, but by the persistent efforts of the remaining mem- bers its roll was gradually recuperated and the regular practice begun. Directors were engaged : Mr. W. W. Davis for the Glee Club, and Mr. A. W. Black for the Mandolin and Banjo Clubs, and work for the term planned. The organization received the management of the Thanksgiving Show, and presented in Odd Fellows ' Hall, in San Francisco, a varied musical and specialty program after the Thanks- giving Football game. The next concert was given in Oakland, at Reed Hall, on December 22, 1898. This was followed by a program in Alameda, on the 23rd. The Southern tour by the combined clubs took place during the Christmas vacation. The trip was the longest ever taken by the organization, and occupied the entire three weeks, a concert being given . every evening. As planned, the clubs started from San Francisco on the 26th, and their route covered most of the principal towns along the coast, then took in those of the kite-shaped track and brought the musicians home by way of the San Joaquin Valley. The places at which concerts were given were : San Jose, Santa Cruz, Salinas, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Santa Ana, Pomona, Riverside, San Bernar- dino, Redlands, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Visalia, Fresno, Sacramento and Stockton. The clubs were well received and won favorable news- paper mention wherever they went. They were entertained at almost every stopping place by friends of the University, and dances, receptions, teas, dinners and tally-ho rides occupied the time not spent in traveling. No concerts have as yet been given this term. 136 Musical Association Of the Uni versity of California. , FIBST TERM. HAROLD S. SYMMES, - BlRNEY HOGAN DONNELL, F. HAROLD FREMAN, - FRANK C. PACHE, ...

The Women Students ' Glee Club was organized in September, 1898, for the purpose of stimulating musical interest among the students of the University, and of furnishing a source of culture and pleasure to its members. The club purposes to give occasional concerts under the patronage of the ladies of the faculty. Dr. Ssnger, who originally suggested the idea of a chorus among the women students, has consented to become the advisor of the organization. Officers. FIRST TERM. Miss F.

It has a membership of two hundred and forty men, among whom are included students occupying positions of prominence in all branches of College activity. The rapid growth of the Association is a sufficient proof that it is a valuable agency of usefulness in the University ' s life. The Association endeavors to make its influence felt among the students in many ways both religiously and socially. It aims to stimulate and deepen the spiritual life of the students. Weekly meet- ings are held on Wednesday at 4 p. M. Either a student or a prominent outside speaker acts as leader. Again, over fifty students are enrolled in systematic study of the Scriptures under the supervision of the Bible Study department. The Missionary Committee keep the members interested in the Christian activity in various parts of the world. Another vigorous religious influence is the Y. M. C. A. Summer School, held in Pacific Grove for ten days during May. College men from all institutions of the coast attend. (Last spring, twenty-six University of California men represented the Association.) There the men learn practical methods of Y. M. C. A. work, which are put into operation when they return to College in the fall. Again, the Association is of great service to the student body in a social way. During the college year three large receptions are given to the classes. New students are given a welcome and members of all classes have an opportunity of getting acquainted. During the last year, in co-operation with the Young Women ' s Christian Association, about twelve thousand students were entertained. Twice a year, an informal dinner is given to the members at Stiles Hall. At the spread this spring one hundred and seventy College men were seated at the tables to enjoy the good fellowship, which only a gathering of College men can furnish. As a result of these gatherings, ardent College spirit is fostered and the bonds of good will and warm friendships are strengthened. Many students are assisted in a practical way by the Association. In August, new students are helped by Y. M. C. A. Committee men in registration and matriculation, in finding boarding places, and many other things so new to the average Freshman. In addition to this, a permanent agency of helpfulness exists in the Employment Bureau, conducted by the Association under the supervision of the General Secretary. Through 140 its efforts, many students have found employment, who otherwise would be unable to go on with their course. From May 20 to December 31, 1898, as a result of the Employment Bureau ' s assistance, forty-six students found temporary or permanent employment. In a business way alone, the Association does what no other student organization in College can do. Officers. J. LORENZO KENNEDY, ' 00, President. WARREN M. DAVIS, ' 00, Vice-President. CLINTON E.

More interest has been shown in it by the other students, and the membership has increased to about two hundred, rather a large fraction of the college women. Prayer meetings are held every Tuesday afternoon at four o ' clock. Usually the meeting is led by a member, but often an address is given by one of the Pro- fessors on some especially interesting topic. The meetings are spiritual and enthu- siastic, and every one is helped by them. There are four classes for Bible study, led by Prof. Bailey, Misses Ensign, Ross and Brookman. The membership is good, and the earnest study necessary has been found a great aid to the students, not only in the Bible classes, but also in other ways. Besides these four classes, there is one for the student volunteers, a preparation for the great work farther ahead. As to the Summer Conference, this aims to prepare the girls for the work of the whole year, and for the immediate fall campaign work. Last summer, just before the opening of college, the Association here joined with other College Y. W. C. A. ' s in a summer conference which continued five days and was held in Berkeley. The days were occupied in Bible study, privately and in classes, meetings, addresses, and recreation. The girls gained encouragement and inspiration, new ideas, and were much better fitted to take up again the year ' s Y. W. C. A. work. It has been planned to hold another conference, this summer, similar to that of last year. Perhaps the most expanded department is the College Settlement in West Berkeley. The work lies among the boys and girls whose lives have been made incomplete by poverty and ignorance. They are formed into clubs, self governing as far as possible, grouped according to age ; and these clubs meet weekly for recreation and instruction. The workers try to reach them through music, pictures, literature, but most effectu- ally through personal acquaintance with them and their homes. They are trying to give their better inclinations a chance to develop. The results are excellent, although slow. Joint receptions are given with the Y. M. C. A., at the beginning of each term, in the fall to the Freshmen, in the spring to the upper classmen. " At Homes " are held several times during the year, thus promoting good fellowship among the members. To conclude the Y. W. C. A. is an organization of Christian workers and their friends, formed especially to promote Christianity among the College girls, and to offer assistance and fellowship to women students, from the day of their entrance all through their University life.

JNE of the most notable events during the past year, in the Philosophical Union, has been the visit by Professor William James, of Harvard University, who delivered an address open both to the public and to the philosophers. The papers read at the monthly meetings during the year have dealt with subjects suggested by the writings of Professor Dewey, of the University of Chicago. The Union is now looking forward to a visit from Professor Dewey. He will be in Berkeley during Commencement week, and will deliver the annual address, Monday, May 15. The subject has not yet been announced. The meetings of the year have had an average attendance of about sixty. The membership of the Union has been only slightly reduced by the recent change in the amount of the annual fee. Next year Professor Howison, who has been President ex-offitio, as the Mills Professor, will be absent on leave, and the constitution will probably be changed, at his suggestion, so as to make the Presidency an elective office. Professor Howison will thus, for a year at least, give up the office he has filled with such distinguished ability and success from its very founding. Another result of his temporary absence will probably be that next year no philosopher from the East will be brought to Berkeley. The changes, no doubt, will not cause the Union to lose the leadership it has maintained among organizations of its kind in American universities. Officers. Professor G. H.

HE German Club differs from all the previous general University associations that have been formed for the study of German, and other modern foreign languages offered by the University. It has for its basis not merely the practice of the tongue, but the idea of a German life, with an attempt to vitalize an interest in the language by everyday use, and to obtain an appreciation of all the literature of the language. With these ends in view, the plan of the Association consists in bringing together into a club, students of German, so that their class-room work may be easily broadened. Joined with the Association ' s primary idea is that of a club life and good fellowship in the University home of the Association, where students and instructors may live together. The credit for the plan and its successful execution is due to F. L. Wharf, who has for several years been working for the promotion of a feeling for the live element of German. In pursuance of his desire for a genuine German club, he organized, at the close of the last University year, the present society. Throughout its first year, the Club has endeavored to realize its first aim of keeping the German idea uppermost. The difficulties have been great the primary knowledge of German of its members ranging from that of the native German to the infinitesimal amount possessed by the Freshman. However, in numbers and in results, the Club has been more successful than its friends anticipated. Since its organization, the Club has further aimed to promote the practice of German among the students of the department at large, to become a center of German interests, and to create higher appreciation more generally of the Germanic literature. Longfellow Memorial Association. I HE Association was organized, in 1883, by Prof. Albert S. Cook and some of the students in his higher classes for the purpose of fostering social relations between the collegians and the people of Berkeley. At that time it was an almost exclusively student organization ; it has drifted gradually away from among student activities, however, and at present almost all the members are townspeople. On this account, important changes in the nature of the society are now being discussed. Each month, meetings are held in the parlor of some member, at which an address and a musical program are presented. During the past year the following addresses were delivered : Prof. W. A. MERRILL Literary Clubs in Ancient Rome. Prof. ALBIX PTTZKER Delights of Linguistic Studies. Mrs. Nioo BECK-METER Ibsen and Bjornsen. Prof. E. H. SEARS Othello. Dr. K. C. BABOOCK Twice Across Norway. Officers 1898-99- Prof. L. J. RICHARDSON, President. W. E. COLBY, Vice-President. C. L. BIEDEXBACH, Secretary-Treasurer. 145 T. Phi Beta Kappa. HE first chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa in California was instituted at the University last autumn. The object of the society, which has about fifty chapters, is the promotion of scholarship and fellowship among students and graduates of American colleges. Members are elected from the best scholars of the graduating classes, from graduates of the College whose post-graduate work entitles them to such honor, and from persons distinguished in letters, science, or education. Good moral character, as well as scholarship, is required for membership. The chapter at California elects its student members primarily from among the candidates for the B. A. and B. L. degrees, though candidates for the B. S. degree are not ineligible. The candidates for these degrees who show evidence of broad, general culture, and who are included in the one- seventh of the Senior class standing highest in scholarship, are eligible for membership. Members are elected in September and in April, and must not exceed in number one- tenth of the candidates for the B. A. or B. L. degrees. Charter Members. MARTIN KELLOGG (Yale, ' 50). MELLEN W.

Ti HE essential features of the famous New York Greek Club have been trans- ferred to California in the shape of the California Greek Club. The basis of the work of the Club is translation and free criticism. The method of work consists of the reading by a member of the Club, every Satur- day night, of a carefully prepared translation of some selected passage of the author which is being studied. The remaining members then criticise and take part in a general discussion of what the leader of the evening has presented. The Club is exclusive and is limited to a small number. There are now five members from the Academic Senate, a high school instructor and three graduate students. This year the study of the Club has been the reading and discussion of Plutarch ' s Lives. Executive Committee: Dr. H. C. NUTTING, Dr. J. T. ALLEN, R. W. HUSBAND. The Homer Club. I HE Homer Club is a new organization of the increasing number of undergraduate Greek enthusiasts. It was formed this year under the leadership of Dr. James T. Allen. The membership is limited to ten, of whom five are women and five men. The members are drawn from the finest Greek scholars of the Freshman classes. Part of an evening is spent each week, appreciating the beauties of Homer. Members make no preparation beforehand, translation being extemporaneous. Some eight books of the Odyssey have been read during the year. 146 I HE Science Association was organized in the University for the double purpose of uniting all actively interested in science, and of promoting, so far as pos- sible, original investigation in all scientific fields. In order to give greater scope to the study of specialized science, the Association has been divided into sections, each of which is controlled by its own set of officers. By a recent enactment, membership has been opened to Juniors and Seniors, so that at present the faculty, graduates, graduate students and upper classmen may participate in all meetings. In the college year, eight meetings are held by the Association, and the time is devoted to such discussion as the president may designate. Throughout the years of its existence, this matter of executive preference, manifested by each new president, has been a block in the way of progress, and much discord has resulted. The sections, however, have developed upon the lines of a well defined policy, laid out to cover years of investigation, and thus far, individual choice has failed to upset the schedule. The section devoted to Zoology has been both prolific and original in its work. In the past year, Dr. Ritter, Dr. Johnson, Mr. Miller and Miss Robertson have each presented the results of their study upon uninvestigated forms, peculiar to the Pacific Coast. An equal amount of activity has been manifested by the Geology and Mineralogy section. The best work done has been in the field of Geology, where Prof. LeConte, Prof. Hilgard, Dr. Fairbanks and Dr. Smith have been energetic workers. The work of the Botany section has suffered in the shade of that vigorous growth, the Botanical Seminary. The Botany department has been remarkably productive, but the results of its labors have been given over to the Seminary entirely. The Physics department has shown a more healthy interest in the Association ' s work, some few very important papers having been presented within the year. The Chemistry and Economic Science sections have lapsed entirely. It should be a matter of much regret to the University to realize that the fine Chemistry building, with its laboratories brought out of Europe, as it were, has not furnished the inspira- tion for work of sufficient value to justify at least one meeting of the section in the college year. The Economic Science section, with economic instincts, serves up the result of its cogitations, fresh from the publisher ' s hands, at so much per volume. Officers 1898-99- Prof. M. W.

K CALIFORNIA ART -CLUB HE California Art Association was organized in January, 1896. Its object has been, and is, the study of art. For this purpose, papers are read at the regular monthly meetings upon subjects chosen from a great variety of artistic fields: drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, etc. These papers are fully illustrated, either by practical applications before the Club, when possible, or by photographs, sketches, or models, when not. During the past year the Club has grown rapidly, and a good conception of its work may be found in the following subjects of papers read : Greek and Roman Art ; Artistic Photography ; Nature of Art ; Modern French Artists ; Work of Michael Angelo ; Modern Sculpture ; Art and Religion ; English Art and Artists ; Wood Engraving ; Sloyd in Manual Training ; Portraiture ; Pompeiian Art ; Old English and Colonial Wares ; Illustrating ; Miniature Painting ; Water Color Painting ; Rococo in Decoration ; Early Dutch Masters ; Opaque Water Colors ; The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood ; Evolution in Art ; The Art of Wood Carving ; The Anato- my of Expression ; Egyptian Art ; Classic Art ; Mediaeval Art ; The History of Orna- ment ; Interior Decorations ; Ornamental Design. The membership of the Club has increased to about one hundred and fifty in all. Officers for 1898-1899. Prof. HENRY T. ARDLEY, President. W. E. EVANS, First Vice-President. Mrs. GEO. E.

Sketch Club was organized in August, 1898, with a charter mem- bership of five : Symmes, W ; Masters, ' 00 ; Bradley, ' 00 ; Tolman, ' 01, and Carter, ' 02. A barn on College avenue was fitted up as a studio and used during the fall term of 1898.. By the close of the term, the accommodations were found to be too cramped and the old studio was given up. In January, 1899, a studio on Dana street was procured suitable to the needs of the Club, and here meetings have been held twice a week, regularly, during the past term. Officers and Members.

THE idea of the Art Association originated at an informal reception given by Miss Bell, where Mr. Charles Keeler read his poem : " The Promise of the Ages. " Later, at a meeting of the Associated Women Students, where Dr. Senger, Professor Brown and Mr. Keeler spoke on the necessity of a higher culture and the develop- ment of {esthetic ideals in the University, a motion was made to form an Associ- ation to encourage the study of the arts. It was seconded and carried. A com- mittee was appointed to draw up a constitution, and on February 24, 1899, at a meeting called for that purpose, the constitution was read and adopted, with seventy- five charter members. Mrs. Shafter-Howard, at this meeting, gave an interesting talk. On Friday, March 10, Mrs. Clinton Day entertained the Art Association. Plans for exhibitions of fine photographs and paintings to be made in Stiles Hall ; of concerts to be given by professional singers, and interpretations of classical poets and authors by well-known readers, have been made. These meetings will be open to all students of the University. The associate membership is composed of members of the faculty and all others interested in the advancement of the knowledge and appreciation of painting, sculpture, music and literature. Officers.

Now, the standard of skill is more uniform ; and that standard is a high one for a university. Of the three matches played within the last year, two were easy victories for the U. C. men the matches with Stanford and a clerical organization. The third was with a picked San Francisco team, and, although it resulted in a victory for the city folk, the showing of our men was extremely creditable. We lose very few of our players by graduation, this May, and the prospects of the Club are bright. N. K. BAUGH, SAUL EPSTEIN, Officers for the Past Year. President. K. DAKIN, I Vice-President. D. A.

I HE Sophomore class was big and bold, And in the art of rushing old, So, freely were the results foretold That the Freshies would in the dirt be rolled, And tied, and left to stay in the cold; But somehow the prophecy wasn ' t fulfilled, For it didn ' t turn out as the Sophomores willed. Down at the station called Dwight Way, ( )n the eve of that momentous day, Were marshalled the Freshmen, in battle array. Nearly two hundred were there, they say, Drawn up by Juniors of Naughty-naught, Who had for the Sophs eternal hate. And when the appointed hour came round, They formed in line on the Varsity ground, Waiting, in darkness, still and profound, To hear the Sophomore yell resound. Up behind big old North Hall, were the Sophomores, nearly all. Seniors, too, were represented, and in the Sophomores plans assented ; Seniors, reverend and wise, came to counsel and advise, (Or, perchance, to criticise the Sophomores ' daring enterprise ;) Means of winning to devise and the victory signalize ; Hut, alas, when the rush was o ' er, they could do nothing but deplore The defeat of the wily Sophomore. Over one hundred and eighty strong, Ninety-nine ' s men marched along ; Shouting went they to the attack, And the Freshies sent their defiance bark ; A great, broad smile each Sophie wore ; But soon that smile was seen no more ! With a dash and a smash, and a terrible crash, Toward them sprang the Freshman gang ; There was shouting and crushing, and yelling and rushing, There was struggling and fighting, slugging and smiting, Wrestling and scrapping, and tying and strapping Till at last all was past. The Sophs, all bound, lay on the ground, While round about, with many a shout, The Freshie band danced hand in hand. 154 153 EPITAPHS. Czar.

Crusonis are best known in Berkeley. The plumage of the fowl is usually of a dingy color with occasional garish markings; grayish, hair-like feathers about the head; eyes round and glassy. But the most characteristic is its enormous bill and its use of it, called, technically, " sticking in its bill. " It frequents the shallows of the bays called English and Pedagogy, in season and out of season. There it finds its prey. Gentle reader, come with me to this drowsy cove called Old English. See, the cove is quiet now, and there, seemingly asleep, is that fine Pelecanus Lawheadius. You hear a sudden croaking, the Pelican shakes its head with a bridling, coquet- tish movement, and swoops upon its prey. With great flapping and raucous shrieking, the fowl roils the waters until man can see naught in them nor above them. Nor is the Pelican better satisfied, but, suddenly, in a rage, snaps up that delicate morsel, Prof. Lange, in the midst of his discourse. Thereupon the poor fishermen on the shore raised a tumult and, somewhat abashed, Pelecanus allowed its victim to go on his way. Plainly there is no evolution of the Pelican, and the individuals now existing are paleozoic. Nevertheless, there is no game law in Berkeley for the Pelican, and a stuffed specimen is of much greater value to the museum than one in a live state. Rime of ye Ancient Co-cd.

After the first rush of blood to the head, Charlie Seyler and a few other thoughtful students went in a body to the head of the German department with the following interesting plea : " Professor Putzker, is it true that you will be away in Europe all next year ? We heard so this morning and came right up to see you about it. We don ' t think it was fair a bit to give us such short notice. Here, we ' ve all been counting on taking that course in Lessing with you next year, and now you are going away, and we will graduate before you return, and then we may never have the oppor- tunity again of getting such instruction ; for you must know, Professor Putzker, that no one can give that course as well as you. Now, we came to ask you if we could enter your class even if it is late in the spring term. We must get what little is left to us, and we don ' t believe you will refuse this last to us, will you ? " It is needless to give the details of the unconditional surrender. Suffice it to say that, in March, Professor Putzker ' s class in Lessing was decidedly enlarged, and that about two dozen people will pull the whole six hours when the Recorder ' s Day of Reckoning comes ' round. Jake Mery went another time to the Lieut to get out of a military ex. After ten minutes had been spent in heart-rending eloquence, the dignitary turned to him and said, dryly: " Ahem, Mr. Mery, I have a wooden leg.

IN the great land towards the setting sun dwelt divers men of great learning, who taught the youth of that country. Knowledge there was held in great repute, but gold more so. It came to pass, in a certain year, that the assembly of the people granted great sums for the future instruction for seekers after knowledge; whereat there was much ado, which of the wise men should reap the greatest harvest. And certain of the divers teachers appeared before the council of the governors, saying, " Lo, we are of great wisdom and worth; yet for our labors receive we but three thousand and five hundred talents yearly. " " But, " answered the council, " " behold ye the young men who follow in your footsteps they who set up your apparatus and mark your papers and give instruction unto beginners. Early do they toil and late, but small is their recompense. Let us now more justly reward them, that they may sometimes buy meat. " Great then was the wrath of the wise men, and they answered, saying, " Hath it not been written, ' Whosoever hath, to him shall be given : but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath ' ? " Whereupon did the council confess their fault, and, humbling themselves, yielded up to the head teachers the yearly increase, that they might take in more boarders and buy more cows. In the same year a war came over the land, and many were those who did quit their callings and gird themselves with spear and shield. Now, it happened that at that time there was among the instructors of the youth a young man, who aspired to be called wise, yet many were the doubts thereof; yet, verily, he was much skilled in the culture of the vine and olive. Little did he know of the marshalling of hosts and the exercise of arms, and his instincts were not warlike. But the chief governor of the province had for him a great affection, and, seeing him privately, said, " I will make thee a captain of the host, and pay thee, not only for thy knowledge of oil and wine, but for teaching my soldiers that which is unknown to thee. " Thereupon the young man rejoiced exceedingly and betook himself to the camp by the side of the waters, where he remained in quiet until peace returned to the land. And behold, it came to pass, in the course of time, that they made search for a new master for the school. And some, forsooth, were consumed with a desire for the place and honor. And two, especially, did yearn for the precious prize, even more so than did their friends. Yea, and one of the two did put forth his hand confidently and with a stout heart ; for did he not number among his chosen friends the Rhine-stone and the Budd and the Hearst? But, in an evil hour, the enemy sowed tares in the hearts of the Regents, so that they arose and said: " We will have one, young and skittish, to rule over the school, one whose heart is like unto that of the Palo Alto Starr.

" Poor deluded devils; no lab.; no summer school; themes, cuts huh, rats! Ringy? " [Wise, looking up from copying one of Billy Hilton ' s plates, stared thoughtfully.] Percy jammed his feet up on a desk in the Grapho-room. " It was the night I had been kicked off the baseball team, and we loafed around the mess tent, listening to Baird enlighten Rawlings ' charming ignorance of some reputed actor ' s use of ' igle ee. ' After a while Stew comes up and winks: says he feels pretty mean, and fetches a lick at me. The crowd holds us off, and we jaw. Rawlings tells Mr. Hunt to lie down and Baird looks aghast. During this time, the crowd has been giving Baird the idea that on his broad, young shoulders rested the honor and good name of the College; that he was the chief reacher-out with the olive branch, and so the Commissary comes up and paws around about the disgraceful scene, and we keep on jawin ' . I hear a wild howl and look around, and here comes Harry Cornish, plowing through the crowd for Baird. He says, ' Do I care who Baird is? No! you bet I don ' t ! ' and he up and goes for Baird. A lot lay on him and the rest corral the Commissary, who lights out for the creek bank. Harry rips around. ' Can a man hit him? Xo, you bet! ' We get Baird up and he says that he knows he did not touch Mr. Cornish; he must be mistaken. ' No, you bet! ' says Harry, and reaches for him, and the Commissary does the creek bank. Any way, after a while they get Baird to admit that he hit Cornish, and he apologizes, but Cornish stays ugly. [Professor Kower puts his head in the doorway; sees Hall; goes out, mildly astonished.] " He wanders off to his tent, and the 167 crowd wait around and say how savage he is, and about his Spanish blood and a huslied- up past, till Baird is keyed up properly. In a minute we hear sound of high words and Fred Morris comes out of the tent, followed by Harry, both talking excitedly. We hang around and listen, and things look pretty lively, till they go muttering off in the dusk. " It was nearly dark by that time. This was all new to us, and so it was by inspiration that we worked some more on Cornish ' s Spanish blood, and when one of his tent-mates appeared and said his pistol was missing, Baird nearly got hysterics. He thought there ought to be interference. I kind of expected something, and pretty soon it came. We saw a flash through the trees down the creek, and bang! bang! more flashes and a savage yell ! I was on the edge of the crowd and I lit out, but nobody touched Baird. Prom twenty yards in the rear I saw him stop so short, his feet dug great holes. Cornish, smoking pistol in hand, was loping around a motionless, prostrate body and emitting frenzied yells. You bet, it was a striking scene ! A lot got hold of Baird, rushed on the murderer and then, drawing back, watched with awe the Commis- sary hold the frenzied center rush. The rest got Morris into a tent and inked in a peachy wound, and after arranging the body, dragged Baird in. ' Good God! ' The Commissary caught sight of that wound in the candle light and his face was yellow. Right there it looked as if we had laid on a little too much, so we rushed him out to hold the criminal, who at once put up a vicious fight. We shoved Baird under Cornish and six fellows piled on. Baird spread. Just then some boy hollared that the murderer was getting his knife out, and Baird simply rose up through that mass, as if through a pile of straw. At this juncture, McNab and some more scared-looking fellows got Baird aside. ' You ' re the fastest runner; Morris has to have a doctor, so you better light out for Hood ' s. ' When we heard his trot die away, we all lay down and rested, while the corpse took a drink. The nervous condition of the camp was frightful, and in every dark corner lay a bunch of fellows, too weak to do anything but gurgle. " Baird got back from Hood ' s very soon, though it was down two miles towards Calistoga, and found the corpse unconscious and the supply of brandy in camp com- pletely exhausted. " In the morning, Cornish ate his breakfast alone and moodily, at one end of the bench. Morris appeared with a ball of cotton pasted over his left temple. " Glance 168 shot, " we told the Commissary and gave him the tip not to say anything, as Cornish and Fred had shaken hands and Harry felt pretty bad. Baird absorbed. " Percy slowly pulls down his feet. " It was the darndest thing. " The mechanic, who might have gone, but didn ' t, gazes out of the window absently. Why the People call him Bunny. It gets too dark to play ball, so game is called off. Boys collect coats. PALMER: " The first fellas that get sacks, hold ' em! " [Starts on run for camp. Baird piles down hill ; falls through brush into creek ; crawls out and, getting into camp first, gets flour sack. Swells around. Berky emerges from cook ' s tent leav- ing trail of potatoes.] COOK: " Ze sack! Dom! " [string of French invectives.] Mr. HUNT: " Only four fellows can hold sacks. Too many got sacks. Baird, are you dead sure you are onto the job? " [Baird has held sacks for rabbits for years. Tells Hunt and so gets doubtful permission. Hunt finds that Baird has a flour sack ; decides that it closes him out of sack holders. Baird remonstrates, then swipes Beetle Goodale ' s sack which is carelessly left on ground. Refuses to give it up. Party starts up canyon, joined by Mr. Hood of winery.] BAIRD [casually]: " Say, fellows, what do you do if two of ' em jump for your sack at once ? " PALMER: " Jes " I expected. I thought you had been hunting rabbits before. " [Reaches fruitlessly for Baird ' s sack.] " Say, who ' s boss of this hunt? " [No reply. Party climbs past point E in silence. Lights of camp faintly seen a mile below.] HASELTIXE [as Baird whispers for instructions] : " Gimme the sack! Gimme it! I see you ' re green. Gimme the candles!

Hood and Hunt consult in whispers. : Wind moans down canyon. Loud and indignant bellow from across creek. Crowd perceptibly moved.] HOOD: " I guess this ' ll be the best place. [Jerks picket off fence. Carefully examines ground.] " Well, who ' s going to hold here ? " [No response]. BAIRD [moving up] : " I guess I might as well. Shall 1? " HOOD: " How about this, Hunt? Do you think this fellow can take care of this place? " HUNT: " Well, well, 1 don ' t know. What do you think, Baird? " BAIRD: " Why yes, of course I can! " HOOD: " Well, come here! Now. when you hear ' em comin ' , keep your head and grab so " [explains the fine points in the art]. BAIRD [mildly]: " How many miles do you suppose we are from camp? " HOOD: " Dunno ' see that hole? Put your candle between the pickets. Keep outside the vineyard ! Hold the sack between your knees. Kneel ! you stiff- kneed ! kneel ! [To expectant crowd] Three o ' you drivers go out ! [Waves hand to vineyard ; three fellows flit oif into darkness.] How many candles you got ? " BAIRD: " Three! " [Distant howls from vineyard. Baird trembles perceptibly.] HUNT and Hood: " Sneak out of the candle light, you fellows! Lay low, Baird! " [all exit]. [Long quiet. Distant voice up canyon : " Lay low, Baird! " More quiet. Faint howl from vineyard. Protracted silence.] interval of Seven Hours. [4:30 A. M. Three Dew-drop Inners have just wallowed through brush, and, after having cut main tent rope of camp Dewey, light out. On turning tent corner run into Baird, sack in hand, looking, in the gray morning light, rather feverish.] BAIRD [voice in which disappointment and suspicion are mingled]: " Jus ' got back? eh! Say, did you get any rabbits? " R. OLIVER [recovering with rapidity]: Rabbits? " Ye we nope! Not a darned one! " [Baird groans and flits off through brush. Three from Dew Drop look at each other for a minute askance, then disappear in tent.] To the late owl nothing disturbed the death-like stillness of the sleeping camp. 170 Table Talk.

At the finish, some one gets the remnants of the pan from the other table and offers it to Milli. Brown adds milk, while meal continues in heavy silence.] " Say, Baird, who ' s boss in your party?

Wise still being there.] 171 The Great Baird Comet. We all knew that Bunny had been predestined to be famous, and the more we came to know him, the more remarkable it seemed that he had not already flared out from amongst the human firmament like Baldy Reid ' s cranium on a cold night. But one day it seemed as if the time had really come and Bunny was to be enrolled amongst the immortals. Now you must know that The Boss was interested in astronomy. Night after night he would steal away from the fickle checkerboard, to focus a transit upon infinity, and there, alone with Nature, he would softly quote II Penseroso and various mathematical formulas. On this particular day he came down to the break- fast table with a face wreathed in smiles, but withal a very mysterious air. It was not long before we knew that he had made a wonderful discovery, and by noon the whole thing was out. Bunny had discovered a gigantic comet. To say we were surprised is drawing it mild. We just looked at each other and shook our heads. Truly, it was wonderful indeed. And Bunny well, he just walked around and gravely shook hands with us and solemnly assured us that, though his fame should oscillate from one end of the world to the other, and though millions should kneel down to pay homage to his genius, never, no, never would he forget those who were there to congratulate him in the hour of his triumph. And we congratulated him. When darkness fell upon the earth, poor Bunny was swimming in a delirium of his own pleasant thoughts. At last the great moment dawned. We were all present, except Mr. Hunt and Mr. I ' routy, who had been engaged for the past few nights in taking observations on Polaris, and had gone up to-night to finish their work. In silence we stood grouped about the telescope, awaiting the supreme moment when the great Baird comet (for so he had named it) was to appear. Suddenly a great hush fell upon us. Bunny, with one arm extended dramatically, was pointing to the celestial wanderer. The great Baird comet was before us in all its heavenly grandeur. It was truly a magnifi- cent sight. Just where the top of the ridge and the sky met, it flared out from the dark back ground. With hushed voices and abated breath we stood. Bunny, almost hysterical from his over-wrought feelings, stood leaning up against McNab for support. Suddenly the comet moved. It was a peculiar kind of movement. It seemed like a sine curve that had lost its constant and was coming down to 172 camp to look for it. Nearer and nearer it came. Bunny, now entirely recovered from his weak spell, stood gazing wild-eyed at his fast approaching comet. Nearer and still nearer that erratic comet drew, and finally having clambered down the hill-side, " walked over to where we stood. Bunny, when he saw it, just gave one shriek and fell over in a faint. The next morning Hunt posted up the result of his observations on Polaris, but that hasn ' t anything to do with this story. This has been Carefully Suppressed. " This is about the warmest thing. " Large drops rolled down Mark ' s face and splashed on the rocks by the road-side. Spencer heaved a sigh, glanced at the simmering landscape and slowly up the long ascent to point " F " . " Hood ' s a pretty darn white fellow. " To Spence, the big winery operated by the last-named gentleman was dark, cool, not too far away, and, in sadness, tradi- tionally attractive. For a moment or two in each breast there raged a conflict. Simultaneously, after a brave resistance, both youths fell. Spence stuck his pins under the fence ; White glanced up the slope for the approaching Prouty. Nothing diluted that simmering landscape. With a sigh of relief the boys left the dusty road and entered the dark, dim depths, peopled with casks, tanks, and an odor, which only a Napa winery of some years and abilities can afford. Being entirely innocent and undetermined in the visit, both boys, Spencer on the floor and White on an " empty, " stretched out comfortably. The humming of fermenting wine in the dark recess was a tonic to slumber, and a long quiet ensued. Mark had an explanation ready for Hood, bridged over with his smile, and, confident of its effect in the past, he felt no worry. Rest was near, and comfort, and also that sympathizing indicating odor. By accident both jboys arose at the same time and eyed one of the distant sizzling barrels. " That ' s too new. " " Yes, " answered Spence. A pause followed. The boys strolled down by the rows of little and big casks, small tanks and tanks 173 like small barns. In front of one of these latter the boys paused. " 10,000 gallons, " (pause) " 9,999 gallons. " Mind you, not the veriest thought of violence to the contents of that tank entered either mind. " I notice " " And I, too, " said Spence. " That that plug, " continued Mark, " is loose, " remarked Spence. " It is too bad that carelessness, " resumed White, " should endanger that vintage, " suggested Spencer. " A good blow will secure it more firmly. " Spence watched in interest. Bang! biff! " Holy smoke! " A jet of red wine drowned the words. As thick as a tumbler, and with a rush of a ten-foot head, the contents of that tank dashed in a ruby cataract against its neighbor. The boys went down on their knees, inserted their fists, were sprayed a lovely red, leaned against the hole and hunted for the bung with their feet. A half a bung floated merrily by in a stream of Mr. Hood ' s best. Mark gasped. Spence blew the claret out of his eyes and leaned with stubborn courage. Mark stepped on some- thing, slipped and disappeared in the flood. Like the returning dove, the lost bung bobbed up blithely from under his feet. With a piece of pipe they alternately belabored that bung, and dripped. The diminished stream was mopped with sacks, layed with dust, and the sacks secreted. With varying emotions the unfortunate and innocent boys lay in the brush till dark. Their soaked and discolored clothing was tied down in the deepest pool below camp and a change skillfully procured. To this day, the only suspicion of the happening was caused by the remark- able eifect of the creek water on John McNab, when he happened to quench his thirst the day after, below the mentioned pool.

Pa does; Pa graduated in 76. They joshed me bald- headed the other night and Pa wouldn ' t put me on, for Pa graduated in 76. They introduced Mr. McDuffie as a Freshie and I felt so sorry for him a great, big fellow like that, a Freshman ; and, you know, he doesn ' t look very bright anyway, so I tried to be real kind to him, and Pa never told me till I got home.

Heart to Heart Talks with Lovers. LETTERS TO MINERVA. Lovers Estranged. " U the World Loves a Lover. " Dear Minerva : During my Freshman year I met a young D. U., who made himself very agreeable ; so I asked him to call when I became a Gamma Phi Beta. We went to the Freshman Glee, Sophomore Hop, Junior Farce and other little affairs together, but we have become estranged lately. He said that some of the KAT ' s were just too lovely, and I retorted that some of the Figi ' s were too cute for anything. He hasn ' t called for a long time now, and I am very sorry that I spoke so sharply. And then he plays the ' cello so superbly! He has such beautiful golden hair ! The other night I passed by the D. U. house, and I heard the sad strains of " Love ' s Golden Dream is Passed, " and it didn ' t sound nearly so pretty as when he used to play, " There ' s just One Girl " for me. BROKEN HART. (Don ' t brood over it. Try still another D. U. and remember that there are " as good fish in sea as have ever been caught. " ) Troubles of a Ward Politician. Dear Minerva : They call me " Czar " at college; although I run nearly everything there, I have much trouble outside. To get to the point, I am much in love with a little black-eyed girl, but I find that she is much harder to manage even than was that Grim fight for Recorder. She has so many wiles and cute ways of hold- ing me off that I am in despair at times. Long have I waited for some augury from her lips as to my future welfare. The " idle wind always seems to blow the leaves of prophecy away from me. " Sometimes I catch small fragments ; they are always deluding. C. E. T - - M - s. (Time alone can show you, but we hope that she will encourage you. It might be well to remember the words of her namesake, and we hope they will be an inspiration to you. " Tu ne cede mails, sed contra audentior Ho. " ) 1900 Again. Dear Minerva : There is a Santa Cruz boy, a member of my class. Although he goes with those rough mining fellows, he is just as sweet as he can be, and he has the loveliest auburn hair that I have ever seen. He comes to see me every Friday night, and generally he escorts me to Christian Endeavor. What I want to ask you is : Do you think it proper for Juniors in college to be engaged ? He is a young man of exemplary habits and I know he loves me. Please consider well and advise. A-N-S S- -DM-N. (The life of a mining engineer is a hard one, but " love will find a way, " we hope. It is proper for you to become engaged, but you had better defer marriage until at least a couple years after graduation. Besides, your ideas may change in that time, but you know that a fellow is convenient to have, anyway.) 177 THE CALIFORNIA CO-ED. Loves Many Young Ladies. Dear Minerva: I am a Senior of twenty-one, and I am considered to be a most excellent conversationalist. I can talk on any thing at any time or place, to any person whomsoever. Just at present, I am much worried about my future and I write to you for advice. There are so many lovely girls at college that I simply cannot choose between them; first I think one is just perfect, but when I meet the others I forget entirely about that one and am completely wrapped up in the present company. Of course, you see what a predicament this places me in, as all these girls seem to love me very much. Now, please answer soon, as I am in much trouble to know what to do. F. J. A-M-T-XG. (A boy of your age should not be thinking of marriage, but should be full of his studies and future life-work. You are probably mistaken about these young ladies loving you. They only think that you are amusing and quite cute. Re- member that you should first get a nest for your bird, and then there will be plenty of time to get the bird. However, it will do no harm if you can get ac- quainted with some nice little high-school girls of seventeen, as they will be ready when you are.) Reconsider, Young Man. Dear Minerva: I am a Chemistry student, and a very promising young man. In my Sophomore year, I met a very charming young lady. It was a case of love at the first sight for both of us. I will graduate next year and I write to ask you whether I had better marry immediately after Commencement, or wait a month. J. C. C-R-S--X--X. (A youth of such evidently tender years should think twice before he takes the final step.) Incomprehensible. Dear Minerva: I am a prominent member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. I am also quite prominent in society. I am very handsome, so I have been told. I come from a splendid family. My father runs Santa Cruz, when I am not at home. I am a superb dancer, charming singer, remarkable conversationalist, and an all-round good thing. I cannot see why the ladies do not flock at my feet. H. A. L-NS--TT. (Damfino.) Slow, but Steady. Dear Minerva: Have noticed your kindness in answering the many enquiries for advice. I write to you, seeking for suggestions. I am in the College of Mining, but I do not associate with those rowdy mining boys. I have been keeping com- pany with the sweetest, brightest girl in my class. But you see I am boarding at her home, and her brother knows me most too well. Do you think that occu- pying the parlor for over six hours a day is too much? We always walk to 179 " school " together and often take longer walks. I am thinking of proposing, for she is so lovely that I fear that some one else will get her first if I don ' t hurry up. G. R. L-HM-N. (You should not be in such a hurry; besides you don ' t know whether she reciprocates your love.) Irresistible. Dear Minerva : I have been told that 1 am without doubt the sweetest, prettiest and most charming co-ed on the campus. Although only a Junior, I practically run the Glee Club and Football team, that is the Sigma Nu and Chi Phi parts, which are, after all, the only parts worth mentioning. I wish to know if it is " the thing " to have over two fellows a term. You see I don ' t want to do anything that will attract attention or cause comment ; and yet I can ' t help realizing that I must be quite a belle. Some things must be obvious to the College. A--CE R--N-Y. (If what you say about your attractions is true, one can hardly see how you can help but have less than a dozen or two on a string for a term. If they bother you too much, stick them on fly-paper.) Wasted Affections. Dear Minerva : I am a young girl about seventeen years old, and am so beautiful that my College friends call me the " Fair Elsie. " Now, I am very much in love with the President of the Junior Class, who is also very handsome. He is tall and rather stout, and has a pensive look in his violet eyes. But in spite of every- thing, my love is not returned. I come into the Library and sit near him at the reading tables, and write notes to him, but all in vain. He always goes to sit by M-t-lda R-ch-rds. This is my first love experience, and I have it bad. Dear Minerva, tell me what to do to win his affections. FAIR ELSIE. (Your complaint is a common one. Young girls are inclined to worship some noted person. Give him up, and don ' t let your aspirations soar so high. It is three to one against you any way. Don ' t think too much over the pensive look. He m ay have dyspepsia or weak eyes.) But next time this letter appeared : Dear Minerva : I was interested in a letter in the last issue signed by Fair Elsie, because I think I may be her hero. I am the Junior Class president, but as to being handsome or having violet eyes, I don ' t know. But I am tall and stout, and have a pensive look, although not troubled with dyspepsia or weak eyes, as you suggest. At any rate, it appears that I am the adored one, and I want to find out just who " Fair Elsie " is. It is certainly interesting to feel that some one loves me. CL- -N-E BUSHEL. (As " Fair Elsie " is known to me only by this appellation, I cannot direct you to her. Surely, a little observation of pretty girls, who sit near you in the Library, will discover her.) 180 How He Does It Sonberful of Sdjiller. 3 neoar fd)peaf of mniclf. (Jiuc Unifegung.

Mighty funny things they learn up there. From high eddication excuse me, Never seen such doin ' s any where.

We foun ' the fellers dressed in old white pants, With ball coats on ' n plugs all battered in, Whistlin ' ' t every gal they got a chance. Some were little tops a-tryin ' ter spin, ' N pullin ' little keers ' n shoutin ' loud, ' N playin ' sojer, jus ' like little chaps, ' N ever ' one aroun ' ' em in the crowd All laughed ' en cheered ' n give ' em ' plaudin ' claps. Then me ' n Sally watched ' em play feet ball; When one man fell, the rest all sat on top The way them fellers tear ' n roll ' n mall ' N swappin ' kicks ! The ball was clean forgot.

LVERY one knows the Peralta Rig. It is one of the institutions of College, like the Drill, or Jimmy Potatoes, or the mounted superintendent of the grounds. It is a sort of University Kindergarten patrol, bringing its children to College in the morning and gathering them up during the day to take home. When one does not see the rig standing in front of North Hall, acting as a place of reception for Alice and her friends, one need only to go down to Mason ' s and there he will be sure to find it. The ordinary duties of this vehicle are to start from Berkeley, in time for an eight-thirty, wind its way, heavily laden, first to the (lym., where a boy is dropped ; then to South Hall, where Tillie and Therlo are deposited, and then on to North Hall, where Alice and the remainder of the boys belong. The " man, ' ' with lightened heart and rig, goes home to rest till later in the day, when the same program must be gone through in inverted order. But these are only the ordinary every day uses of this wonderful rig. It rightfully belongs to a boys ' prep, school, but, strange to say, many College men go to that same school to call in the evening. If you do not believe me, ask Pete or Smith, or even Ewy Brown (by the way, he will probably know more about it now). Well, sometimes these young men stay so late (the boys are so agreeable) that they miss the last horse car. Then it is that the rig comes in. The " man, " patient and long enduring, must take the poor deluded youths to their respective homes. Many and varied are the other uses to which the rig is put, acting as a hid- ing place for tick-tack parties, absconding football men from rallies, etc., etc., but time and limited space prevent me from going into detail.

(And Yet we go about unarmed.) 190 French I3c. I HE roll is called, but no one thinks of answering. Even if he did feel inclined to forego his interesting conversation with his neighbor to listen for his name, it would be of no use, for he wouldn ' t be able to recognize it from the others. And so, after Mr. Faucheux has consulted with his little red book and surveyed the class individually, the recitation goes on, something after this fashion: Mr. F.: " Now. Meester Maggie, where do we begin to-day? " [Mr. Magee indicates a certain page and line.] Mr. F.: " No, I tink dat is not de place. We ought to begin at page number u-an hundred and twenty-low. Is dat not so? " [No dissenting voice.] [Mr. F. reads five or six lines in a touching manner, putting all necessary expres- sion and intonations into the poetry.] " Now, Meester -l arLaren. what do you tink of dat line? " Mr. MAC.LAREX: " Why er I haven ' t read the poem, Mr. Faucheux. " Mr. F. : " Well den, Mees-er Mees-er Meester Hoofman, what do you tink of dat line? " Mr. HUFFMAN: " Why, I think it ' s all right. " Mr. F.: " No, I do not agree with you. It is not a good line. " Mr. HUFFMAN: " Well, that ' s what I meant to say. I didn ' t like it, but I didn ' t see anything the matter with it. " [Mr. F. continues reading: " Et puis il revenait avec le grand armee, Encombrant de butin sa France bien aimee Sou Louvre de granit " etc.] " Now. Mees Richards, what means dat line? " Miss RICHARDS [from the corner]: " I didn ' t hear what you said. " Mr. F. : " Well, den you ought not to sit so far away. You sit dere to talk to Mees Webb, when you ought to be paying attention. " Miss RICHARDS: " Oh, no, I don ' t! Really, I don ' t! " Mr. F. : " Well den, Mees Rwooney, what means dat line? " Miss ROOXEY: " Which one, Mr. Faucheux? " [Miss Eppinger tells her she con- sults the margin of her book.] " Oh, yes ; that refers to the Louvre of Paris, doesn ' t it? " Mr. F. : " Yes, dat is right. Now Meester Maggie, where is dat Louvre? " [Mr. Magee for once is nonplussed, but Mr. Huffman volunteers the information that it is in San Francisco now ; he has been there many times. About this time Miss Rooney and Miss Eppinger reach an amusing stage in their conversation. Mr. F. gets as nearly out of patience as he can]: " Now, Mees Eppinger, you talk too much; will you kindly be good? And you, Meester Newman, you ought to be on the outside of dat door but never mind, let us rcwtinue. " [Reads a few more lines.] " Now, Meester 191 Hoofman, do you like dat line? " [Mr. Huffman thinks he ' ll take the other view this time and says]: " Yes, I really like that line very much; it ' s real poetry. " Mr. F.: " Well, den you do not know what good poetry is; it is not a good line. " [Freddy is silent and swears inwardly that one never knows how to take that man.] Mr. F.: " But dis reminds to me er dat remembers me er well, never mind. What you tink hof dis line Meester Mac Laren? " Mr. MCLAREN [asidej: " Where ' s the place? " [Aloud.] " Oh, its very fine, very picturesque. " Mr. F.: " Yes? What do you tink, Meester Hoofman ? " Mr. HUFFMAN: " I can ' t find the place. " Mr. F.: " Hi didn ' t suppose you could, Meester Hoofman. " [Proceeds with reading.] " Dis line remembers me of someting dat happened a long time hago. You are all too young, but, Mees Gonning, you remember hit. Will some one please tell me what time is hit? [Miss Rooney takes out her watch.] No, not you, Miss Rwooney; Hi will trust Mees Newman more. [Bell rings.] For nex ' time take de nex ' ten pages. [Miss Eppinger grunts.] You want more, Mees Heppinger? You can ' ave hall you want. " The Editor. (With slight apologies to one R. Kipling.) A man there was and he ran a sheet, (That is, so people thought). He fought his wind-mills with generous heat, For stiff independence he couldn ' t be beat, (That is, so people thought.) The sheet was supposed to give the news (Which wasn ' t what he planned), For he used it largely to air his views, He jumped a petition with spikes in his shoes, But then, he never collected the dues And did not understand. And it isn ' t the harm of his false alarm That gives me a horrible pain, But he issued an extra where nothing was proved, By which nothing could possibly ever be proved, Except his illogical brain. 192 Shocks. Cordial. " I hope you ' ll be able to come again, soon, " said the hostess, as Skaife was leaving. " I hope so, too, " he gallantly replied. " I hope I ' ll be able to entertain you better then, " she continued politely. A " I hope so too, " he began. N Cinch? " Why, I was sure I had seen you around college, last year, " said a certain Junior to a co-ed who had just told him that she was J_) only a Freshman. Suddenly it dawned upon him that perhaps he had. Too Familiar with her Cheek. Rockhold, ' 00, was in Chemistry lab, one afternoon, working up an experiment, when he discovered that one 1 of his instruments had turned up lost. An anxious search among his neighbors failed to produce the article, and our hero (!) was just begin- ning to lose faith in mankind, when Miss Scott, ' 01, appeared serenely with the missing tool, saying: " I should think you ' d got used to my cheek by this time!!! " H In the Rushing Season. Ted. Clark, ' 99, Beta (mistaking Earl Garrison, 99, for an " eligible " Freshman) : " How are things coming, old man? Can ' t I help you out with your course ? You know we old timers are on to T-J all the ropes. By-the-way, can ' t you come up to the ' house ' for lunch to-day and meet some of the boys ? " Garrison: " Thanks, awfully, but - er er - you know I ' m a Phi Diddle. " Tot Pearce in Trouble. Prof. Pearce, the pride of the Rifle Team, sauntered down the Chemistry building corridors and, stopping at the office of Gillman, howled, " Hello, old woman ! how ' s tricks ? Want some test tubes ' . ' " Miss Scott transfixed the astonished Pearce with a glassy smile and resumed her work on Freshman accounts. Sentimental. It was at the football reception. Miss M., ' 02, was sitting in the balcony looking at the dancing, when a young man ap- proached her. " Good evening, " said the young man pleasantly. " Good evening, " returned Miss M., trying not to look surprised. Silence followed ; then Miss M. began again : " The decorations are very pretty, don ' t you 1 think so? " " Yes, " said the young man, " but I don ' t believe you remem- ber me. " " Oh, yes, I do, " Miss M. hastened to explain; " I remember your face perfectly, but I don ' t recall your name. " " Don ' t you remember? " said the young man; " don ' t you remember. Love. " And people around giggled, and Mr. Love wondered what the joke was for about ten minutes. 198 O Pom - tiddy - om - pom - pay ! ! ! Stanford guys came up to-day Pom-tiddy-om-pom ! Pom-tiddy-om-pom !

HEXRY T. ARDLEY. CAPTAIN KELLNER. AND WM. CAREY JOKES ALSO RAX. The Berkeley Boomer. VOL. 1. East Berkeley, April 15, 1899. No. 1. A Picnic at Shell Mound. One of the pleasantest affairs of the past month was the picnic given at Shell Mound by Prof. Moses, complimentary to the retiring president. Most of the faculty and a few of the students were present. The feature of the day was luncheon at which an elaborate menu of three courses was served. The health of the guest of honor was drunk in raspberry wine and a delightful hour was passed in speech making. Prof. Moses spoke feelingly of the warm friendship that had always existed between Pres. Kellogg and himself, and Pres. Kellogg responded in a glowing tribute to Prof. Moses. Wm. C. Jones, in a talk on the " Greater University, " said that he hoped that the regents would show good sense in the selection of a new president, and not be bothering to get a good looking man for the place. Mr. L. J. Richardson told of the superiority of German Univer- sities, where he studied, over the American, and Prof. Setchell, in the course of a few remarks, mentioned that he was a member of the Pacific Union and University Clubs. Prof. L. D. Syle, when called on, spoke in his usual animated style and said in part that " this just about knocked the wind out of him and he was ready to bet his bottom dollar that it was a put-up job; besides he hadn ' t prepared an extemporaneous speech like those other fellows. " After luncheon a short program was presented in the pavilion. Prof. Faucheux and Miss Bonte were enthusiastically re- ceived in a cake walk, as was Dr. Dresslar in an exquisite rendition of Mrs. Heman ' s poem, ' ' He never Smiled Again. " Messrs. Sanford and Annes played a harmonica duet, " Where All is Love, " and Prof. Bacon gave with good effect an old " Drink- ing Song. " A cotillion, led by Mr. Jas. Tate, ably assisted by Wm. D. Armes, followed. Socrates Howison provided piano music for several figures, and at 5 o ' clock the picnic broke up. Mr. Symmes and others pronounced it a great success. Kappa Alpha Theta Auxiliary. The Young Gentlemen ' s Auxiliary of Kappa Alpha Theta has just been organ- ized with six charter members. The ob- ject of this organization is to be of use to the young ladies of the KAO sorority; to help them when they are moving ; to guard their ice cream when they have parties ; to do repairing on the chapter house ; to escort them to college affairs, and to per- form various other little services. The present members are : Mr. Moulthrop, ' 00, President ; Mr. Price, Vice-president, and Messrs. Moran, Goodenow ' 01, Tasheira ' 00, and Henderson ' 00. A limited number of young men may be initiated into the soci- ety if, in addition to other qualifications, they have the written approval of the president of KAO. Members of the Delta Upsilon and Phi Delta Theta fraternities are especially eligible. THERE was a rumor about yesterday to the effect that someone had gotten a book at the Co-op. 5 cents cheaper than it could be gotten anywhere else. The " Boomer " intends to investigate the matter. 197 THE BERKELEY BOOMER. The Berkeley Boomer. Published once in a life time at the Sign of the Golden Bear. WILLIAM HEARST, Editor and Proprietor.

Owing to the impetus given to military affairs by the late war, a hospital corps has been established in connection with the University battalion, and a division hospital fitted up in Cow College, with Drs. O ' Brien and Rooney in charge. Many patients have already been successfully I treated, but a large number have also been pronounced incurable. Among the latter are Prof. Geo. C. Edwards, who has long been suffering as the result of an early inoculation with the microbe " iocus. " All possible care was given him, but no relief afforded. W. N. Hohfeld ' 01 suf- fered the same fate. His malady was pro- nounced a serious mental disorder, and he was recommended to Dr. Stratton as a valuable subject for experimentation. Rev. Owen Hotle had his tongue cut the other day and can now say a few words, but it is not thought that he will ever be able to talk very much. Some of the cases are interesting from a scientific point of view. Shakspear Symmes was treated for a fractured skull. It seems his head was swelling so rapidly that the skull cracked in several places. It is not supposed that his recovery is permanent. Everett Brown has been in the hospital re- cently, where the doctors have been trying to reduce his abnormal cheek development. Among the most interesting patients at present undergoing treatment are Prof. Soule, who is run down from overwork, and W. A. S. Foster, who is suffering as the result of a great many cuts. The hos- pital authorities say that the crisis will not occur before the latter part of May, but they are encouraged by Mr. Foster ' s former recoveries from the same trouble to hope for the best. Current Gossip. MK. C. E. Thomas ' 99 was around college yesterday (according to one of our con- temporaries). THE " Boomer " has it direct from one of the Regents, that the name of Mr. H. S. Symmes has not so far been considered in the election of the University president. THE Student -Faculty Debating Society will meet to-morrow night. The subject for debate is : " Resolved, that Co-educa- tion is a Blessing. " Affirmative speakers: Mr. Sanford, Mr. Franklin ' 99 and Mr. Hopper ' 98. Negative speakers: Mr. Price, Mr. C. K. Jones and Mr. Tasheira ' 00. SOMEBODY has been unwisely scaring the pupils down at Dr. Jordan ' s. The two or three hundred of Dr. Voorsanger ' s Hebrew students are greatly disturbed, because they have been told that out of a class of fifty at the University of Cali- fornia, the Doctor cinched all but eight. l ' J8 Basket-fid Ballad. TROM Siskiyou to Santa Fe goes Berkeley maidens ' fame, So from out the Stockton tales an eager challenge came, And they signed a league and covenant to keep the men away. And we took the Mary Garret and we sought the manless fray. For a man, a man, a horrid forward man With his silly neck a rubbering like a basket full of snakes, He is really quite impossible, a creature ' neath the ban. For our ' breviated raiment all his foolish fancy takes. But he crumpled up our covenant ; he shinnied up the wall. He riddled every window pane and in the floor holes all You could see his head a bobbing, see him cower like a rat, When Miss Linscott strode above him and hissed an awful " scatT 0, the man ! 0, the man ! the sneakin ' , peekin ' man.

He was Skull and Keys and horribles and scarecrow rolled in one. And when the victory was ours, we sought our river-swan; The San Joaquin about us lapped a word and we were gone. There came a bleating noise across, from the river bank afar: " The Berkeley co-eds are surely out ! Who left the gate ajar? " the man, the man. the sassy, brassy man ! We told you so, you are, you know, a monster of the pit. Perhaps we ' ll let you see us when your skull we may trepan, But meanwhile, Nature ' s ' prentice work, you ' re a bloomin ' big misfit. Pedagogical Leg-Pulls. A Freshman, a Professor, and Some Questions. E had come up from a small college, and she wanted advanced standing. She undoubtedly was clever, and her general reading had been rather wider than usual, but between the register and the heads of departments the strength of her mind had gone from her. She was interviewing Professor Bradley. " Now, to get an idea of the scope of your work what masterpieces of English literature have you read ? " Applicant, whose train of association ran Masterpiece Shakespeare - Hamlet : " I ' ve read Hamlet. " Professor, trying a new tack: " What poets of the nineteenth century have you studied in particular ? " Applicant, faithless to the Browning on her wall, the head of Byron on her desk, and the select company on her book-shelves : " Well er Andrew Lang and, oh, Austin Dobson. " Professor, with rare self-control, changing the subject : " Now, as to prose, essays, orations what have you done in that line? " Applicant, utterly lost: " I ' ve read all of Cicero ' s. " Professor, whose instinct of self-preservation is now in the ascendant, but always polite : " Your wide range of reading has doubtless added to your general culture, but I can scarcely see my way clear to giving you credit for Freshman English on the strength of it. " And, after reflection, the applicant hardly saw how he could. It was the same undaunted young woman, with the hope that springs eternal, who tried to wring credits from Professor Ritter. He also asked for an outline of her work. This was too general a question, and she remained speechless. He repeated it, and she stammered out: " Why er germs and ah things ! " The interview here ended, and she is at present pursuing the five years ' course. And Now He Walks with a Limp. 5. was a special student in English, and very anxious to take Prof. Lange ' s course in - . " It is impossible, " said the Professor, when she inquired; " I can only allow Juniors in the course. " " Oh, I do so want to take it; I simply must take the course, Professor ! " But all her begging and pleading, even the gentle persuasion of tears, could not win over the hard-hearted Lange from his firm stand; so at length she withdrew, tearfully, sorrowfully, angrily. But the next day she re-appeared with a new method of attack: " There ' s no use talking, Professor Lange, I must take that course. " " I repeat that I can admit no one below Junior standing. You cannot take the course. " " Now, Professor, didn ' t I take a Junior course with you last year? " " Yes. " For so it was. " Didn ' t I do well in it? " " Yes, " said Lange. " Well, now, can ' t I take this course, " she demanded, forcibly. ing the hopelessness of struggling against such determined opposition, Iinge meekly replied: " Yes, you may take it. " " Well, I don ' t want to! " and, as Lange recovered, he received a parting shot from the vanishing co-ed: " I just wanted to see if I could. " Through a Veil of Tears. Prof. Gayley was out examining Preps, Gayley the great and the wise. And Prof. Gayley had come to a little school, where one of his pet pupils now wielded the sceptre and forced down small throats the wonders of his Classic Myths. Prof. Gayley, the noble and high-minded, strode into the room, and the small chil- dren trembled. For , was not this the man himself? Then came the ordeal. One by one, as the questions flew from the lips of the august Professor, the quaking scholars opened their mouths, only to fail dismally, only to seal the doom of their fond teacher, only to fill the heart of the stern Gayley with great anger and much righteous indignation. With the black cloud of Gayley ' s wrath and impending judgment hanging over them, the class was dismissed in disgrace. Gayley, with a calm, firm, just heart, went to make his report to the Principal. But, hark ! A sound as of a woman weeping ! Loud lamentation and great sorrow ! He listened. Still the wails went upward and still he listened. Suddenly he crossed the hall-way, in two great, grief -shaken strides. He knocked on the door with a tender, sympathetic knock. No answer save the bitter sobs of the heart-broken. He shook the door with a tempest of strange emotions sweeping through his ever-noble soul. Still the mournful sound of many dropping tears. Then the adamant melted in his breast of justice, and well um the young lady ah the school, yes, the school (and two others) were the only ones accredited that vear. 303 Diagnoses. CHI PHI [name unknown] : The patient is suffering from a severe and long-standing attack of aridity of the potational region, commonly called the unquenchable thirst. The characteristic symptoms, Weariness of the cornea, rosiness of the nasal appendage, and tendency to instability of equilibrium during acute attacks, are very noticeable. This is, indeed, a sad case, and needs harsh treatment ; a strict course of mile-limit is recommended. BEN REED : A serious case of megacephosity, or enlargement of the cranium. The patient labors under the hallucination that he is the chief object of interest of his fellow-men, a common form of monomania in these cases. This malady is extremely difficult to treat; it is thought, however, that a candidacy for a college office may effect a cure. DICK TULLY: The patient exhibits a strange aversion to publicity, and makes strenuous efforts to keep in retirement; the case is evidently one of micro-auto vitality. Frequently the symptoms are similar to those of persons who have been defeated for office. This is a form of melancholia requiring tender treatment. A steady diet of minstrel shows, with a tonic of yell-leading and class-meeting speeches, is suggested. RALPH MYERS : This is a chronic case of hyperactivity of the vocal organs, popularly known as over-developed loquacity. The patient is unable to keep his mouth closed for more than a minute at a time. Too frequently it drifts, as in the present case, into a monomania, the patient excitedly describing the necessity of subscribing for the Calif or nian. This does not preclude other conversational possibilities. Shirley Walker. When people look at you, Shirley, What do you think they say ? Do they say, " How strikingly handsome, " - " How enchanting is his way? " Oh, no! When they look at you, Shirley, Something like this they say: " Well, who in the name of conscience Is that awful, conceited jay! " OL ' R TIN SOLIHKK. Ralph Daniels. He is a good and brainy little boy, And in self-contemplation finds exceeding joy; He loves to talk for all the world to hear, But the world does not appreciate the boy, I fear. 204 A Co-ed Canyon Episode. Editor BLUE AND GOLD: Let me describe to your readers the latest outrage. I was just taking a little afternoon walk up Strawberry, and accidentally happened to meet Miss - on the same errand, so we decided to join our forces and go together. It was a glorious afternoon, and we sat in a sequestered nook, watching the sun set. All at once I heard a report, and the " ping " of a rifle bullet past my ear caused me to start swiftly to my feet; in another moment the brush parted, and who should appear but - , who pre- tended to be somewhat abashed when he saw us. I walked up to him and told him just exactly what I thought of him for shooting at me. He tried to pass it off with a laugh, saying, he had shot a rare bird and that the bullet must have passed near me afterward. Since he insisted, we went back to where he thought the bird was, near Miss - . What was my indignation to find that he had shot a glorious, stuffed parrot on her hat ! He pretended to be very sorry and surprised, but it took me an hour to comfort that poor girl for the loss of the bird. I think there should be some law, preventing such hair-brained fools from shooting in Strawberry Canyon; it was built for another purpose, and the lives and feelings of peaceful students should be preserved. [It has since come about, probably through the efforts of the author, that signs, prohibiting shooting in the canyon, have been put up; and one is no longer compelled to take one ' s life in one ' s hand when one goes to see the sun set. ED.] Merely an Ode. A well-poised head, 1 a charming face,- a crown of bronze-gold tresses ; ' A pair of wondrous clear-blue eyes, 4 whose power each heart confesses, Whose long, dark lashes softly sweep a cheek ' for sculptor Attic ; A nose 6 with saucy upward tilt, a chin 7 aristo- cratic ; A coloring whose perfect hues no art could ever render; A merry, half-coquettish air, at once demure and tender; White hands s whose shapely slenderness was given by kiss of fairies ; A form whose grace was surely caught from grain on wind-blown prairies ; A rosebud set with willful thorns to guard from envious malice, A matchless queen of girlhood fair, art thou, oh beauteous Alice. The Bugle Corps. Upon the fence sat the bold Bugleers, And bugled and bugled again, While the pup sat below and wriggled his ears, And howled in mournfullest strain. 206 Distinguished People.

DEKE GOAT: " They ' re about played out. Poor Sigma Chi looks like a resur- rected skeleton. " BETA GOAT: " And that tottering old Zete over there is nothing but skin and bones. " FIJI GOAT [to himself]: " If they die, wonder if I ' ll get a chance to feed, grass is mighty scarce. " DELTA. U. GOAT [affectionately to Deke goat] : " We ' re all right. Our frats have more fellows than any others round here. We ' re the rising fraternities, old fellow. " [Deke goat shudders and retires to the farthest corner of the field.] BETA GOAT [laughs]: " Ha! Ha! He! He! " FIJI GOAT [anxious to change the subject]: " Here comes Chi Phi. " [A blear-eyed old goat, with his forelock rakishly pulled over one eye, half swaggers, half totters across the field, followed by the Deke goat.] PHI DIDDLE GOAT: " Brethren, behold in Chi Phi the results of youthful wild- ness. Thus does " the course of sin run its way. How much better to let virtue ' s light shine clear and-- S. A. E. GOAT: " You make me tired; you ' re too good. " BETA GOAT [absent mindedly]: " Do you like chickens? " [The S. A. E. goat, with sudden alarm in his eyes, subsides into silence.] FIJI GOAT [not wishing to commit himself]: " Chi Phi is getting on in years. " CHI PHI GOAT: " What ' s that? Old age? Well, maybe; but I ' ve had a jolly good time getting there, and this fellow here [affectionately nudging the Deke goat] is going to take my place and show you what a society frat ' s like. " DEKE GOAT: " Yes; most of our fellows are in the Blue Book, and hundreds of dollars in checks are robbed from our house every other month. " [A crisis, is averted by the entrance into the field of a dainty little white kid, with a white ribbon tied round its neck, bearing the letters W. C. T. U. It slowly ambles across to the group, humming a Sunday-school hymn.] CHORUS OF GOATS: " Hello, Delta Tau, where are you going? " DELTA TAU GOAT: " I ' m on my way to Stiles Hall. The Y. W. C. A. have a meeting at four o ' clock. " DEKE GOAT: " It must be time for Miss Head ' s to let out. Come on, Chi Phi, we ' ll watch the girls, and you can give me a few pointers on how to be swell and sporty. " FIJI GOAT: " Not much fun talking here, anyway. I ' m going home. " BETA GOAT [with a long-drawn sigh]: " So am I. " [And he reluctantly wends his weary way across the campus, sending up a prayer that the University will want certain pieces of property when the new buildings are put up.] 208 Hajj Notes. I X the month Zal Hajja of the year 1278 after the Hegira and the twentieth day, twenty-six of the Faithful from the University of California accomplish their pilgrimage to Pacific Grove, the Mecca of the Pacific Coast students. At the Fourth and Townsend depot Iman Ar Hutchinson has a short conversation with the station agent. IMAN AR RENO (just to pass time] : " Ifs three fifteen to Pacific Grove, isn ' t it? " STATION AGENT: " Xo, two forty-five. " Iman rapidly calculates. " 26 X $.70 the delegation will save about $18.00 from the Southern Pacific at this rate. " Then, just to make certain: " Did I under- stand you to say the fare to Pacific Grove is two dollars and forty-five cents? " AGENT: " Xo. The fare is three dollars and fifteen cents; the train leaves at two forty-five P. M. " IMAN RENO: " Oh! " On the way to Mecca the Howling Dervishes startle the natives. The Hajis are received at Mecca with many salaam s. They have rock cod for dinner. ZAL HAJJA 21 Tabib Erl Swan and eight of his men play baseball with a team gathered from the Xorth and from the South and from Palo Alto. They knock the sandals off them in the game. ZAL HAJJA 22 The Hajis observe the day of rest. It is discovered that Aben Abdu Gear eats candles. ZAL HAJJA 23 Mnstapha Dozier leads the army of the Faithful into the region of Del Monte. The beautiful striped robe of Iman Ar Reno causes all chronometers to stop and all people to gaze in rapture. In Monterey a horse dares to look upon the sacred garment and straightway falls to earth. Abdu Ef Mumma. Hakim Babcock, Mufti Miller and Ahmed Herb Masters fulfill a vow and dip four times in the waters of the bay. Being pious and devout men, in order to escape the attentions of the mermaids and because nothing else is to be procured, they array themselves in the bathing garments of women. Then, verily, " the sea hath its pearls. " The Faithful have rock cod for dinner. ZAL HAJJA 24 Mufti Miller plays tennis, but the distracting smiles and glances of some gazelle-eyed houris cause him to lose the game. Shekh Peck and Abdu Ef Mumma both remove their turbans at the baseball game. It takes half an hour to decide which man is Mumma. Haji Herriott Zahad, while wrapped in devotions, is overtaken by a wave and gets some salt water in his sandals. ZAL HAJJA 25 The Hajis take the seventeen-mile journey and view the land. They have rock cod for dinner. Mustapha Dozier, Haji Belcher and other Zahads attend a feast in the evening. Lest these should become forgetful of all else but the bright glances of the dark-eyed houris, a great many more of the Faithful come also, but remain in the outer darkness. They accomplish their mission by means of a bunch of horse-hair and some rosin. The Howling Dervishes assist. ZAL HAJJA 26 Rock cod for breakfast. The California team again plays baseball with the tribe wearing the red robes and wipes the sand of the desert with them. Haji Herriott Zahad takes a bath. The water is about fourteen degrees below zero, and Herriott appears at dinner very " Blue in the gills, the gills. " Mustapha Dozier takes a walk to the lighthouse with his charmer and comes in late. He receives enough fish, however. ZAL HAJJA 27 The Faithful engage in field sports. Al Cid Elston distin- guishes himself in the sack race. Shekh Peck comes near winning immortal fame by his remarkable spurt in the obstacle race, but fails at the finish on account of a dry soda cracker. Later, he and Abdu Ef Mumma become so mixed in the elephant race that they cannot be sorted, and a piaster is tossed up to see which to call Shekh Peck. Mustapha Dozier, while enjoying the calm moonlight, a deep veranda and a charming companion, is brought back to earth by a sound as of many tin cans smote upon by clubs. ZAL HAJJA 28 The Faithful dip in the sacred water of the Del Monte swimming baths. While returning, Mustapha is mistaken for a family man by the street-car conductor. Rock cod is served for dinner. At 11:30 P. M. Iman Ar Reno and Mulla El Spaulding ascend to the attic, attired simply in their night robes, to superinduce an earthquake. They break several sections of the penal code of Mecca by descending via the veranda post while thus airily clad, the other passage having been barred by a locked door. ZAL HAJJA 29 The Hajis observe the day of rest. Mustapha says his last adieu. Likewise the rock cod. ZAL HAJJA 30 All things having been accomplished, the Hajis return to their homes. Aben Abdu Gear is flattered because the young lady station agent describes him on his ticket as slim. Mustapha ' s baggage wears signs of mourning. At San Jose, the Hajis surround the devotee from the Normal School and are raised to the seventh heaven of happiness at the ravishing notes of his farewell yell. The Band. With a crash and a bang, with a shriek and a blare, Our Band came down by the old North Hall, And never a man but could feel his hair In his cap, stand on end and begin to crawl ! 210 GIVE ' EM THE AXE, THE AXE, THE AXE. More Verdure. - FRESHIE, desirous of procuring Carlyle ' s Essay on Burns at second-hand, had asked several Sophomores in vain for their books at reduced rates. Greatly disappointed, she walks into the Co-op, where the book may be secured for ten cents. This is about as serious a mistake as the Freshman made, who decided to put a large yellow C on his sweater, to let people know he belonged to the University. But it is excusable alongside of the Freshman ' s blunder, who. wishing to join the Co-op, applied to Spiro Sargentich, and the latter, with true, native wit, made him swear with right hand uplifted, to love, honor and cherish that one book-store, to buy all his supplies there, for better or worse, till death, etc. Two Freshmen on the train. " See those two girls over there? Pretty, aren ' t they io to College " No: Miss Head ' s. " " What ' s that? Prep.? " " X " . some sort of finishing school. " " But one ' s studying Solid geometry. " " That ' s what they do. Solid geometry, basket ball, teas and dances. " LADY [visiting grounds]: " Is that one of those terrible rushes going on up there ? " STUDENT: " Oh, no! That ' s only the Junior mining push amusing itself. " In Freshman Algebra, a girl in the back row in a loud voice is heard to say: " Dr. Dickson, there is some folks by the name of Dickson in Iowa, where I come from. " Boutie Buncoed. " Say, Bout, " said Leete in a confidential manner to Dunlap one day last August, " can you let me have six bits? " Now, as we all know, Bout has a very obliging disposition, and is always ready to put himself out to help a friend. " Why, yes, old man, " he replied, " I don ' t happen to have it with me, but Til get it for you. " So he hunted around until he found his friend Reith. " Lend me seventy-five cents, will you, old man, " he said. " A friend of mine wants to borrow it, and I haven ' t a cent with me. " The cash obtained, he returned to Leete. " All right, Dunlap. " said the latter, " I haven ' t my book with me just now. but I ' ll give you the receipt when I see you again. " And since then Bout has been a subscriber to the magazine. ' .Ml Co-education, Sh akespeare and " Puppy Love. " IT happened one sunny afternoon in Prof. Gayley ' s Shakespeare Seminary. We that is the class were discussing " Romeo and Juliet, " and as the various virtues and defects of the characters were exploited, the arguments grew heated, the mem- bers of the class espousing partisanship with this or that view of Romeo or Juliet. Finally, after prolonged criticism of Romeo ' s qualifications as a lover, the dis- cussion came to an end with the following remarkable dialogue : Mr. ROY NYE: " No, I can hardly agree with the critics and the matinee girls, that Romeo was a good lover. He could not have been sane. Surely, no man endowed with even a fair intellectual balance could have gone to the great lengths which he attained, utterly disregarding in his mad infatuation all principles of rational activity. " Miss EDITH BONNELL: " I don ' t think Mr. Nye is right in what he says about Romeo at all. I think Romeo was a very good lover. All men make love just the way Romeo did. I never knew a real nice man who didn ' t act just as madly and just as incoherently as Romeo did when he was taken that way. " Miss FLORENCE EWING: " It seems to me that both Mr. Nye and Miss Bonnell are wrong. Romeo was all right, only both he and JulieJ were little babies. They did not know what was the matter with them. There is a time when we all felt like that. You know, it ' s what they call " puppy love; " perhaps Mr. Nye never had it, but it ' s just as much a disease as the measles, and one ' s conduct is no more responsible than with the measles. That was what was the matter with Romeo. If he had lived he would have outgrown it, like all the rest of us. " Prof. GAYLEY: " Well, ladies, have it your own way. I ' ll not venture to disagree. " 1 HOW ' D YOU LIKE TO BE THE ICE-MAN ? " 212 Escapade s. Earthquakes. IT was about the third night after the big earthquake, while Carl Parker and Eddie Kuster were sleeping the sleep of the just (?), when several conspirators were to be seen silently gliding into their room, and arranging themselves, as silently, about it. One man crawled under each bed, two were placed at the ends, while others took up their positions near doors or windows. For a time all was still, except for the all pervading snores that rose and fell. Suddenly a low whistle was heard ; the men under the beds moved themselves, and great upheavals ensued; the men at the ends gave the proper rotary motion to the shock, while the others produced the requisite rumblings, crashing and clatter. As the earthquake grew in strength, Carl awoke and, realizing that the house was caving in about his ears, gave one terrific bound, and with a yell struck the floor many yards away; at the same time, Edward, taking in the situation at a glance, sat up in bed yelling " Fire! " and tumbled out, hopelessly entangled in his blankets. Next morning the earthquake was the talk of the house, and especially of Carl and Eddie; nor was it discovered till the following day that it was a purely local vibration. 213 The Fall of Kline. The Bike Corps went whirring down the long-deserted avenue like a streak of chainless, high-gear lightning, until the order of " Twos about! Harch!! " brought the company round short, only to start up the hill at an equally sultry pace. Joe, the Captain, was a little slow in getting around, and the corps was well strung out, lying low on its handle bars and digging hard. With a mighty effort, the Captain caught and passed the first few rear men and raced on in a vain attempt to reach the flying guide, Don Spencer, whose rear view could barely be made out in a cloud of dust far ahead. Suddenly, there was a swish and a dusty thud and Joe was seen to slide gracefully along the road, like some well trained baseball player on his way to 2nd. At the same time, his wheel, after standing on its head and tail in rapid succession, quieted and lay down gently on its prostrate master. When Gear finally brought the scattered forces to a halt, some blocks beyond, a pale but grimy figure was seen to rise slowly from the heap of dust, try its arms and legs carefully, feel its ribs, and finding none broken and few cracked, pick up its injured steed and march painfully forward, removing portions of the roadbed from its uniform as it walked. It was Joe, unhurt, save in feelings; unruffled, save in appearance; and the Bike Corps wept for Jo(y) to find itself still an unbroken company. In the Wilds. Prof. McGilvary ascended " Grizzly " with a party to see the sun rise. When near the top, snarls and growls were heard, apparently produced by a wildcat. Me. and some of his party at once gave chase and attempted to capture the would- be cat, but in vain. A day later, Oliver Pratt, one of the party, again ascended the peak, armed to the teeth, but again there was a hitch this time it was a failure on the part of the cat to make its appearance ; and Pratt, after a long and exciting stalk through the brush, turned his golf stockings homeward. It leakeH out later that the growls and snarls were produced by young Meyer, one of the party. Prof. Bradley and the Bees. Prof. Bradley discovered that the bees in a hive of his son ' s were rather lively one warm, summer day, and, concluding that a swarm was imminent, arrayed him- self in garments which not even Solomon could match, and sallied forth to capture the restless insects. The bees also sallied forth, and thinking him some new and glorious flower, lit upon him and probed each nook and cranny of his clothes, with distinct success. The Prof, is said to have quoted Shakespeare copiously, and finding the day still warmer in the proximity of the hive, retired gracefully, yet swiftly, from the scene. 214 Plehn Bumped. Prof. Plehn was out wheeling one day, and, while exploring a new hill road, descended an eight-foot precipice. Spiritual aid was at once sought and applied by his companion, Dr. McGilvary, with the result that the Prof, recovered in time. Not so the fence, for which the Prof, is still paying on the installment plan. The fragments of the wheel were collected, melted down, and run into a new mold. First-Class Auburnites. Uunlap was just about to start for Auburn, to spend the holidays with his folks. " I want to get into this second-class smoker, " he said; " 1 think some of my Sacramento friends will be there. You know nobody travels first class to Auburn ; all the really first-class people that go to Auburn travel second class. " With that he entered the car. Seven (7) passengers were there already; six (6) were Chinamen, and one (1) was a negro. Celestial. Will Greeley of Stanford was sleeping peacefully, when the big earthquake came and scattered a few books from the shelves upon his head. When some one came in to see how he had enjoyed the shake, he murmured: " Where ' s God? " He thought he had passed in his checks and was in heaven. Jerry Muma, of the College of Dentistry, in the act of filling his first cavity. L ' 15 Stealings from Rudyard. Song of the Thirsty Faculty Bikers. By the old Hoffburger brew ' ry, looking westward toward the sea, There ' s a pretty bar-maid sittin ' an ' I know she thinks of me, For the wind is in the gum trees, and the horse-car bells they say: " Come you down, you thirsty rider, come you down to West Berkeley. Come you down to West Berkeley, Where the old, square court-house be! Can ' t you hear their pedals pumpin ' from the Grounds to West Berkeley?

The Regents have a monkey Upon a painted stick, Whenever they do will it so They make him do a trick. They jerk him up an ' yank him down, They claw an ' pull him all aroun ' ; You bet he gets most awful sick Of clinging to the stick. 217 The Thorny Path of Learning. Stimulating the Clam. JNE afternoon last term, several unfortunates, including Chas. Seyler, were at work in the Zoo Lab. 1 B. The genial Charles was engaged in dissecting a clam, and, as well as one might judge, was trying to poke out the contents of the shell with an ugly-looking dirk, that was large enough to serve General Laveaga for a sabre. After several vicious, though unsuccessful, lunges through the body of the animal, any one of which would have settled a baby elephant, Charles desisted in disgust. Just then Mr. Torrey appeared on the scene, armed with a large bottle of quieting mixture, and anxious to allay the sufferings of any specimen that was so unfortunate as still to be alive. Observing the disgusted look of Seyler, Mr. Torrey at once concluded that Charles ' evident dismay arose from some humane motive of sympathy, and lost no time in approaching him and inquiring if his animal was dead. Seyler grasped the clam firmly between his knees, got a good tight grip on his dirk, and, setting his teeth, dealt the unfortunate bivalve a blow that sent pieces of his clam anatomy flying around the laboratory; then, observing his work thoughtfully for a moment, he replied, with a satisfied air: " I don ' t know whether the specimen is dead or not, but he don ' t seem to respond to stimulus. " Carey Cared For. They could all see that Carey had a joke up his sleeve, and were awaiting it in quiet resignation, wondering which of them he would select for the torture. For Carey does not tell a joke as a civilized being should ; he loves nothing so much as to badger and torment some victim, and make him out a fool, because of his inability to answer fool questions. The conclusion had been reached, that an aerolite, falling on a man ' s land, became his property. " Now, suppose, " began Carey, in his provoking way, " er-r, suppose that some one er-r should be walking in the field as it fell, and er-r should see it, and er-r suppose he should well er-r put out his hands er-r and should er-r calch it; whose would it be then, Mr. Zeile? " Zeile had the sympathy of the class as he arose to answer. He seemed some- how not to appreciate the situation, but to be in dead earnest. " The theory, " he began, slowly and thoughtfully, " has been suggested " really, he was as aggravatingly slow as Carey himself; could it be he was joshing the Prof.? " The theory has been suggested, " he repeated carefully, " that it would belong to his heirs. " At last Carey was hoist by his own petard. The remains are still on exhibition in the Jurisprudence courses. 218 What Were They Thinking About?

H. : " Oh, but you should hear my sermons. " L speaking of the modern belief that the heart is the seat of the tenderer emo- tions, Mr. Sanford disagrees emphatically with this idea, and states that he agrees with the ancients in believing that the stomach is the seat of the tenderer emotions. FIRST CO-ED : " I think that Mr. McDuffie has an awfully nice face when you get up to it. " SECOND CO-ED: " Did you ever get up to it? " PROF.

The North Hall steps are crowded tight ; The " mob " is always there. Adown the path the co-eds flock : And the " mob " is alwavs there. The North Hall stairs are full of boys ; The " mob " is always there. And North Hall boys are full of stares, that " mob, " it ' s always there. No Profs attempt to mount these steps. Whene ' er the " mob " is there, For stern tobacco fumes forbid, Whene ' er the " mob " is there. Some girls think it ' s just too sweet. Because the " mob " is there. But others think its awful mean. Because the " mob " is there. But would our College be complete, If the " mob " were never there? Nay! In future years our hearts will turn To this " mob " that hangs out there. Awkward. Hart-Breaking. During the last Christmas vacation, a young professor and his bride were staying at a hotel in Southern California. So was the Glee Club. The Glee Club was very attentive to the young couple and sang songs to them, but the young couple didn ' t seem to appreciate the attentions. However, the Glee Club didn ' t mind. One day they were sitting in the dining room, at lunch time. As usual it was a babel of voices ; then came one of those sudden and unexpected silences, and out of it rose the bride ' s voice, clear and distinct: " I ' m so happy, Walter dear, aren ' t you ? " And then everybody kindly made a lot of noise. " Knock, and it Shall be Opened. " On the afternoon when President Harper of Chicago University was to address the students, Hutchinson was congratulating himself that he had gotten safely within the Gym., for it was raining furiously. So when a gentle knock was heard at the side door, which was locked, he was just in the mood to josh the less fortunate ones outside. " Oh, go round to the other door, " he began, " you can ' t get in here. " The knock was repeated. " I tell you you can ' t get in this way, the door ' s locked, " continued Reno. Again the knocking was heard. " Say, I hope you fellows are enjoying yourselves out there, " he exclaimed, mockingly; " why don ' t you get Slow to let you in out of the wet? " The knocking now became more violent. " Why don ' t you get an ax if you want to break the door down? " asked Hutchinson, with delicate humor. Just then Slow appeared and opened the door. As he did so, President Kellogg walked quietly in, followed by President Harper. Reno will know better next time. Two ' s Company. Down at the house where Edna Davis boards, all the young ladies are very popular; so in the evening, there being only one parlor, it is a race between them to see who shall entertain her friends in a dignified manner in the parlor, who take a walk, and who sit on the steps. One evening Miss Clara Stark was successful, and so when Edna ' s friend, whom we will call No7 1, called, she spoke of the beauty of the evening, the romantic grounds, etc. So they started out. When the corner was reached, Edna, thinking she needed her jacket, went back to get it, leaving the youth waiting on the corner. At the house No. 2 appeared. The youth on the corner waited. Edna and No. 2 sat on the steps. The forgotten youth on the corner waited, getting more and more angry, until, finally, a great lump rose in his throat, and two great tears rolled down his cheeks. He went back to the house, and there imagine, dear reader, if you can, the result. Think of the compliments exchanged and the opinions of each other respec- tively, or both together, expressed. A farewell quickly spoken, tears that were yet undried, and one is left where three once were. But along comes No. 3, and this time Edna is careful to take her cloak with her when they start. 222 Jilted. Hugh Hersman, P.

" Annual Announcement of the Fraternities of the University of California. AT the earnest request of the various fraternal bodies, the BLUE AND GOLD issues, for the benefit of coming Freshmen and of the few remaining eligibles in upper classes, an announcement for each fraternity. A careful scrutiny of these will reveal to the uninitiated the leading features of each society, and will, undoubtedly, aid the ubiquitous individual " who has been asked by nearly every frat in College " to learn more about that coterie who invited him to lunch the second day after registration, but afterwards forgot his name. Zeta Psi. Governor Budd belongs to our frat. So does Harry Budd, who was his uncle ' s nephew. Our house is proud, though unpainted, and so large in comparison with our membership, that Freshmen can have separate rooms. Don ' t join any of the " cheap sport " frats, but come to us. Chi Phi. Two McNutts, Freddie Knight and Earnie Birdsall are on our chapter roll, but, unless you know who they were, we are sure you will be glad to join us. Delta Kappa Epsilon. We are undoubtedly the people. We have a fine new house better than the Betas. It is three stories high, and is going to have a lawn in front of it. We are very proud of it. We have placed a picture of it in the Library. We have journalists, play-writers, athletes and managers in our frat. We endeavor to be as prominent as possible. (We have been robbed more than any other frat. That was because we are obliged to leave the door open nights, so that the boys can get in.) We believe in heredity. We are indifferent as to whether you join us or not. Beta Theta Pi. We were established by Billy Armes, who belongs to the Bohemian Club. It is not true that the mortgage on our house will be foreclosed. Billy Mein works in the Co-op, and he will help us out. We believe in the holy state of matrimony, and invite all students who are engaged to come to lunch with us. They will meet fellow spirits. We still have hopes for the future. Phi Delta Theta. We have some energetic rushers, who meet all incoming Freshmen at the train. All inducements will be presented through them. Upper classmen gladly received. Sigma Chi. A complication of conditions has so severely depleted our membership, that, although it is against our former policy of exclusiveness, we feel obliged to issue a call for volunteers. No maximum limit will be placed on the number. A second call will be issued after Christmas. 224 Phi Gamma Delta. We announce ten vacancies to be filled when Billy Ede graduates ; house-men preferred. All Freshmen with military ambitions should apply here before going elsewhere. Sigma Nu. We desire to obtain a strong footing in the Musical Association, and offer frat pins gratis to the first five Glee Club men who will join us. Any students getting athletic records, or college offices, are welcome at our house. Nationality or good connections no object. Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Freshmen wishing to perfect themselves in the art of eaves-dropping should apply to us without delay. Students should recognize that S A E carries with it a peculiar significance, such as no other fraternity name conveys. Chi Psi. [Characteristics unknown.] Kappa Alpha. We are especially desirous of obtaining some handsome, aristocratic initiates, to raise the tone of our fraternity, and to raise us in the favor of the ladies. We are very thankful to receive invitations from the sororities, and hope they will be more liberal in this respect in the future than in the past. Delta Upsilon. " Quantity, not quality, " is our motto. We possess a great variety of members, and endeavor to keep in touch with all branches of college life ; so every one should feel that there is a chance for him to join us. Our only regret is that we have not a sorority attached to our organization. As announced in the last BLUE AND GOLD, we once entertained the Longfellow Memorial Association in our parlors. Since then our social standing has been unquestioned. Delta Tau Delta. We are new, but very ambitious. Till this term we have had a class-president in our frat ever since we organized but Earle Swan broke our record. Dr. Babcock, who has charge of Phi Beta Kappa, is a faculty member of Delta Tau. The Delta U ' s are inclined to pattern after us. Theta Delta Chi. We are desirous of obtaining several copies of a standard text book on Rushing Tactics. At present we are too scared to talk. We know now how a chicken feels when it first comes out of the shell. [Students desiring further information than is here given may address their inquiries to the Kappa Kappa Gamma, the Gamma Phi Beta, or the Kappa Alpha Theta houses. ED.] 225 They Knew Not What They Said. PROF. SYLE (in Eng. 19B) : " Mr. Hill, you can easily remember when Dryden died. It was just three hundred years after Chaucer died. Now, what is your date ? ' MR. HILL, ' 00 : " I don ' t know, Prof. Syle. I remember Dryden ' s death by means of a personal date. " Miss BLANK, Freshman, to her artistic friend: " Oh there ' s such a splendid picture of the Winged Victory up in Professor Clapp ' s room ! Just the head, you know " And when the Doctor came, she had no idea what had caused that fit. DR. DRESSLAR : " Always give children practical problems; for example : If a man thirty years old has a son sixteen years old, how long ago was it that the son was nine times as old as the father? " ONCE Jake Mery went to " see " Cory about a certain cinch. Jake was somewhat worked up. In describing the faculty, he used a few unprintable terms and Cory began fidgeting. Finally he interrupted the excited young man : " Mr. Mery, I don ' t think it ' s just right for you to be swearing in my office. " " Well, " replied the human hot-box, " it gets me so blank blank blank mad ; I ' m blanked if I can help it. I ' m blanked sorry, Mr. Cory but that blanked, blank, blanked of a blank, etc. " And Jake is still repeating the course. IN LOGIC (Formal), Dr. McGilvary (calling the roll) : " Mr. Sinsheimer " - present. " Mrs. Sinsheimer " an awkward pause.

There ' s a young student named Colin, Who ' s inclined to be bashful we ohn ; But in expounding the law, Oh, my! What a " jaw! " Tis something indeed to bemohn. Innocence. Professor Putzker could not see the point. With Profs, on all sides of him explain- ing, repeating and laughing, he could not see any joke in Prof. Armes ' remark (taken from a recent humorous publication), that " the shrill north wind swept past the naked trees with their stripped limbs, while the corn stood horribly shocked. " Finally, Putzker was besought to think it over in his leisure hours, and the matter was forgotten. Some days later, Herr Putzker, in answer to an inquiry about his search for the lost point, replied, in the midst of hushed and expectant silence. " Ye.-;. I did found it, but I vill not tell it, for it ish ' schmutty. ' " How in his own brain our worthy Professor had evolved a " schmutty " point, is beyond speculation. Overheard in North Hall.

Mr. Leach tacks to his door his class engagement card, bearing in large script the solemn signature : " Clarence Wood bury Leach. " This short and tasty postscript is soon added: " Go ahead, Clarence, old boy; you have the true college spirit, and the push is with you. Don ' t be discouraged just because his personality is unpleasant, but be sure and dig a deep grave. " In Agriculture 4- Prof. Wickson (in reply to a query) : " Yes, the climate of Berkeley is admirably suited to poultry raising.

Athearn, ' 00, the football hero, was observed wearing his arm in a sling, about the beginning of the term. This occasioned some anxiety, but on inquiry it was learned that the big guard had been calling on Miss Bottomes, also ' 00, several evenings shortly before, and was not able to straighten his arm for about a week. Further inquiry was deemed unnecessary. Notable. Billy Armes and DuPont Syle were on their way to the City, and, to pass away the time, we ' re comparing notes in regard to the celebrities they had been mistaken for. The discussion grew more animated, as it was apparent that each had been taken for almost all the crowned heads in history, from King Arthur down to Queen Victoria. Finally, Billy ended the matter by saying: " Three weeks ago I was coming down Channing Way, when I met an old friend I knew in the East. The moment he saw me he exclaimed: " Holy Moses, is that you! " Where were the Wheels? Wharff is a great biker. He fairly eats, sleeps and studies aboard his wheel. One day, for some reason, he was walking home from college with his arms full of books, and his thoughts skimming on wheels, as usual. As he started to cross the road in front of Stiles Hall, he was confronted by a watering cart. Thinking he was on his wheel, he began to trot along beside the cart with the intention of passing it. For about two blocks the cart and the Prof, were neck and neck and neither could pass the other, scorch as he would. Finally the books began to tell on the Prof, and he realized his mistake, so he continued his homeward journey on foot. 229 FCOXOMY. He Was No Trilby. Newman once went to a show where a mesmerist did an act. At the call for subjects to operate upon, he charged up on the platform and took his seat under the magnetic gaze of the would-be Svengali. The lecturer announced that he could deprive him of eye-sight and then began his incantations, with Newman a very interested observer. When he stopped his monkey-shines, the mesmerist addressed him, with a confidence visible even to the man on the back row; " Can you see now? " Strange to say, Newman could ; so the operation was renewed and the question again asked, with a similar response from Newman. This tired the lecturer perceptibly. " Well, you can ' t, " he said, excitedly. " Oh yes, I can, " came back the calm, clear answer. " Well, what do you see? " said the lecturer, clinching his point. " I see a damned fool. " And Newman got his money at the door. Echoes from Shell Mound. Bob Moulthrop was one day in the train going to San Francisco, and happened to be sitting alone in a double seat. A loudly dressed young woman entered the car at Shell Mound and sat down in the seat facing Bob. Now Bob, in his sleepy, innocent way was gazing nonchalantly into space, so that his line of vision passed through the junction of his companion ' s neck and shoulder. Of course the Shell Mounder thought Bob was gazing into her ensnaring face at- tempting to make a killing. She stood it as long as she coul d, but at last the camel ' s back broke, and just as the B Street crowd was entering the car, she stood up and plunked Bob a corker in the face, with the gentle reminder that " she ' d learn him manners if he didn ' t learn none at home. " Jimmie Hopper had been down to the rifle range at Shell Mound and was standing at the Station waiting for the train, when who should spy him but a big, fat, juicy German woman, a little the worse for wear. At the sight of the little tow-head her heart melted, and, losing all self- control, she rushed up to Jimmie and, embracing him, fondly kissed him several times. Jimmie, not appreciating her admiring demonstrations, drew away in evident alarm and extracted himself from her arms, screaming excitedly: " Go away, you nasty thing, go away ! " D U I U. A certain young man called, not long ago, at the Delta Upsilon house and gave the brethren the glad hand and a statement of his fraternal stand- ing in the East. He was a D. U. As time went on, he proved to be a very companionable fellow and soon became greatly popular. He was a D. U. One day he happened to be out of cash and wrote out a check for himself on an Oakland bank. He was a D. U. But, needing to be identified, he asked if some of the brethren would not go down with him. He was a D. U. The lot fell on Charlie Fryer, who, with a light heart, performed the deed. He was a D. U. There is a short, eloquent little sequel to this tale. When the stranger ' s presence had been removed three weeks, there came to the D. U. mansion a missive from the bank requesting a settlement of sixty dollars. And one and all responded with a painful dive into their jeans. He was a Do You. 230 THK I1KLTA TAU BANTAM. A Faculty Farce. SCENE : Cloud ' s Rest. TIME : Just before a thunderstorm. PKOF.

Too Sporty by Half. _JLIVER DIBBLE, the popular young lion of the Fijis (also sometimes called the Ring-Tailed Snorter), one evening had the pleasure of the company of a young lady, who proved to be as wise as he. Wishing to cut a wide swath in the ranks, Oliver carelessly stepped up to a cigar stand and bought a fifteen-cent pack of cigarettes. Opening the box, he extracted a section, lit it, and, with an air of usuality, threw the other nine away. This unwonted extravagance floored the lady, and upon asking him the cause of his insane actions, Oliver replied, " 0, that ' s a way we sports at Berkeley have of doing. " The young lady, believing Dibble to be game, straightway began to lay some wily scheme whereby to separate the knight from his money. Many off-hand remarks did she throw out about her insatiable love for ice cream, which were promptly met by Oliver ' s declaration of his hate therefor, and protestations of the danger from poison by eating the modern drug. However, the young lady insisted, tenderly, but firmly, declaring her willingness to have the two die together. Well to make a long story short, Oliver was obliged to show down. He only had fifteen cents when he started out. Blew Himself. W. B. R. D.: " Yes, I ' m getting to be too swift and sporty, I fear.

N( jOBODY ever rents his house a second time for training quarters. What is left of the place is generally patched up and used as a warehouse or a stable. This is brought about from the fact that three hours of football practice do not tire out the squad ; and superfluous energy is disposed of in startling ways. Last football season was by no means an exception. When the boys were not making Chapel street howl, they were out stirring up the rest of Berkeley. You see there was no partiality. Co-eds, professors, Stiles Hall, chicken- coops, all classes were noticed. The receptions in Stiles Hall were a source of great amusement to the training-table " push. " Freshie Womble could account for a sponge-cake and a banana cake and a freezer full of ice-cream, which were conveniently placed near an unlocked window. Love ' s fond dream was rudely shocked one night. Pete had crept up to a certain Dana street house with a tick-tack ready to set up. The window and blind were down, save for a tiny crack. Through this, Pete, with more than vulgar curiosity, gazed. What was his glee, to see a young college couple fondly embracing each other! Such a thing was well worth sharing with " the gang. " So all came on the lawn, and soon a row of heads lined the crevice, entirely absorbed in enjoying the spectacle. Again the evil one entered into Peter, and he deftly pulled the curtain, which responded and went up with a roar. Record does not say which party got onto itself the quickest. The worst thing they did (next to Lol Pringle killing a chicken with his sling-shot in the very face of the owner) was to disturb the innocent, quiet study of young lady friends. A certain Sopho- more co-ed was carelessly sitting by an open window, reading. The " gang, " seeing the opportunity pre- sented by a hose lying on the lawn, propped it into position, took careful aim, and turned the water on. On another occasion, a few chosen spirits went 1 t NSHf. 1 up to a door, rang the bell, and dodged away. The rsju ' . W girl who came to the door saw nobody, but, suspect- f-m X ' Ss. ing a friend ' s work, called the others " for a search in j3 k eJ - t ie g ar den. As one tip-toed to look over the fence, K. JMKXi KsK the ring-leader rose up and gave one of justly cele- brated Piute yells. A panic seized the search party, and a simultaneous rush was made for the door, with the result that they all reached it at the same time. Thus the mischief-makers were treated to the undig- nified sight of six co-eds jammed in the threshold, fighting wildly to extricate themselves and fiee from the pestilence that walked in darkness, A Hko VN STflJy. 23T, History of Pete. Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime. Peter Kaarsberg, the interesting young football-player, that was confined in the training-house, last fall, has had a really extraordinary history. He was born in the wilds of Fresno County, in 1880. Every morning, for years, it was his wont to roam over the Sierra Nevada Mountains, leaping from peak to peak, playfully uprooting telegraph poles and carelessly entering chicken- coops when the owner was near. However, happily, his life was spared, until, one day, a peddler came through the country and, being struck by his intelligence and activity, bought him for a nominal sum and took him to civilization. Here, by degrees, he was tamed and became so docile that he would drink out of a pitcher and play one old cat when in very good humor. Having learned so much in so short a time, it was deemed best to send him to Berkeley, then a struggling institution without a purpose or football reputation. Here he first saw calmly and clearly the value of co-education. This induced him to enter the Class of ' 99. Since then, time not spent in wearing a striped sweater has been passed in pro- pelling base-balls and foot-balls through space. Once, so the story runs, he was induced by misguided boys to try a glass of ginger ale. But that was long in the past, and the blot in his career has almost disappeared. I ' MOTO BY KOI, AND I..

" - THE MESSENGER OF EVIL. The Lucky Hand. M- |Y son, you are about to enter College. With my parting blessing, I bestow upon you this little deck of magic cards, which the God of Wealth and Position gave me as a reward for my years of toil. Heed carefully my directions for the use of the mystic talisman and your every ambition in College may be realized. As a Freshman, you will, no doubt, desire to make some Frat. Play this Ace of Trumps, and learn how your fellow man loves you. The honors of Forensics, with its medals galore, may be yours, if you but lead this debonair King of Broken Hearts. Should your ability lead you to aspire to athletic success, then here ' s the card. The king is high in this suite. Would you be a Colonel ? Finesse with the jack ; it will not fail to take the trick. And so I might run through the deck. A little bluff with another J, and behold ! a Hearst Scholarship. But, my son, beware ! Danger and failure lie in the same deck. If you would be violently cinched back to the paternal bosom, just play the deuce. Thus, you see the whole realm of collegiate activity spreading out at your feet, and the whole thing due to this magic little hand. It has been tried in the past and not found wanting. There is no combination known that can beat it. Remember the great cardinal principles of the game: Bluff all the time. Have your nerve with you, and be always confident, for success will come in the end. One final word in closing : I re- ceived these cards on my own merit, but it is not necessary for you to have the same qualifications. The fact that you are your father ' s son will give the cards a lasting value. 2 240 Kant. Prof. Howison calls him his " amiable janitor, " but, to the rest of us he is, as Prof. James calls his famous namesake, " a rare curio. " Like this namesake and other philosophers, our Kant is noted chiefly for his ability to talk. It is as a raconteur especially that he shines. " I never let a man outblow me, " he says, " if he ' ll tell his story first, I ' ll beat it. " Even the great McGilvary, Assistant Professor of Sophistic and the Theory of Blowlarge, has had to acknowledge this. During the March rains the two were discussing storms. McGilvary maintained that a storm-center, far from being a stormy center, was a region of calm; that a storm was constructed on the same principle as a doughnut nothing in the center, but trouble all around. Kant, however, trying as became the older philosopher, to evade this by telling a bigger one, related his experience with a storm with which he had traveled once, " for ten miles, the front of the engine was in the sunshine and it was raining in the tender. " Upon which McGilvary suddenly remembered that his lunch was waiting, and left. Prof. Howison, too, recognizes the prowess of the mighty Kant. Coming up to the Philosophy building one day, he found three youths on the porch talking earnestly, but in vain, against Kant. " Think of the audacity of it, Professor, " said the latter, " they ' re trying to ontblow ne. " Howison made but one remark. " Trying to outblou- you. ' " he exclaimed, and forthwith entered the building he understood the rest. Once in his life, however, Kant was undoubtedly outblown when the inter- collegiate debate preliminaries were held in the Philosophy building. Standing in the hall, in which the din of oratory from three rooms combined in one grand confusion, Kant, lamenting that he had no meters to measure such gas, listened in awe-struck reverence, speaking only to ask " if the big words, too, got out through the transomes? " With big words and big word philosophies, in fact, Kant has no sympathy; if other philosophers could blow in small words, it would be all right. But as it is " why, " he -. " Howison talks for an hour trying to explain that picture to people, and they don ' t know any more about it then than before ; why, I can tell them all about it. and have them laughing as hard as they know how, inside of five minutes. What good does it all do, anyway this philosophy? Now there ' s Abe Lincoln, he never studied philosphy, and he was the greatest American that ever lived. Don ' t you know, that fellow Charley Buford reminds me of Abe Lincoln; he ' s ali right, Buford is sharp as tacks ; and he makes me think of Lincoln. " Kant has a great admiration for LincolD, having been a volunteer in the Civil War. A Suitable Gear in Wheels. A cherub to spark her Has Adel Parker. Love ' s course no hitch reveals.

The last " copy " has been devoured by the insatiable type-setters. The final " cut " has been hurried up from the engravers. The " proofs " fill the waste basket, and the editorial pen loiters wearily. Yet, ' ere the book is complete, there is one duty to perform. There falls on us the pleasant task of recording our many obligations, of thanking the friends that have helped to make the 1900 BLUE AND GOLD what it is. Nowhere are we so deeply indebted as among the artists. To Mr. Raymond Garter, ' 02, and Mr. Donald McKee of the Berkeley High School, we owe the greatest thanks. But for their steady, faithful and willing labor, we could not have produced the set of distinctly local drawings and caricatures herewith presented. Besides the work of these two, we are grateful to the following Gollege talent for many excellent drawings : Mr. Harold Symmes, ' 99, Mr. Harold Bradley, ' 00, Mr. Carl Parker, ' 00, Mr. R. P. Tolman, ' 01, Miss Grace Moakley, ex- ' Ol, Mr. L. A. Womble, ' 02, and Miss M. H. Wellman, Mr. B. R. Maybeck, Mr. L. N. Scammon and Mr. G. T. Winterburn, of the Art Department. And we are doubly appreciative of the valuable contributions of Mr. William Keith, Mrs. C. A. Keller and Miss M. L. Brehm, of Berkeley. To Mr. Sidney Armer, Mr. R. I. Aitken and Mr. W. S. Wright, of Hopkins Art School, Mr. E. L. G. Steele, ex- ' 97, of Oakland, Mr. Robert Edgren, ex- ' 97, of the Examiner, Mr. Harry B. Quinan, ex- ' 97, and Mr. H. T. Miller, ex- ' 97, we owe many thanks for the willing and prompt response to our requests. In regard to photographs, were we to mention one name of the many that have assisted us, it would be that of Mr. Roland L. Oliver, ' 00, who has spared neither time, pains nor expense to aid us. With what little professional aid we received we are highly pleased, and gladly recommend the artists to others for courteous treatment and successful work. Mr. W. H. Bull painted the poster page, Mr. Richard Stockman designed the title page, and Mr. Gordon Ross the editor ' s page. Miss Mary L. Bisbee, of Berkeley, photographed the Class, the football men and the Junior Farce. Nothing has she left undone to make success. To her, and to Mr. 0. V. Lange, we extend our hearty thanks for many favors and for conscientious work. As in the past, the Louis Roesch Co. has printed the book. We thank them heartily for earnest, intelligent, pains-taking work in getting out the largest book in their experience. The Union Photo-Engraving Co. have handled our work entirely this year. Work- ing under many difficulties, they have, nevertheless, turned out all our work in their usual creditable manner. The Hicks-Judd Co. have bound our book with the same success that characterizes all their work. To the many advertisers, who have made the financial footing of this book sure, we are grateful, and bespeak for them the patronage of the Student Body and their friends. We would like to acknowledge a certain debt to the Cartoon Bill and the Signature Law for sundry free advertising, but our space is filled, our time is up, and the book-binder is telephoning madly. 252 KM INLAND INSURANCE APRIL 3 Dr. Dickson takes a young lady (name unfortunately unknown) down a slide on a boy ' s coaster.

During the term all the branches of medicine and surgery are taught, didactically and clinically. Regular clinics are held three days in the week at the City and County Hospital. Potrero Avenue (450 beds), where the Professors of the practical chairs have charge of wards, and possesses every advantage for the instruction of students. There is also an active clinic conducted three times a week at the College Dispensary, where a large number of patients are examined and treated before the classes. Didactic lectures are given daily bv the Professors, and evening recitations are held several times a week. " The dissecting room is open throughout the entire year. Material is abundant and costs but little It will thus be seen that the course of instruction, which extends through eight months of the year, aims at the development of practical phvsicians and surgeons. The great advantages possessed by the Medical Department of the State University enable the Regents and Faculty to commend it in an especial manner to those seeking a complete and systematic knowledge of the medi ' cal profession. The facilities for bed-side study have been largely increased of late, and the student will find opportunities at his command which, for comprehensiveness, are nowhere surpassed. FOUR YEARS ' COURSE. In response to the general demand, both in and out of the profession, for a higher degree of proficiency in medical education, the Medical Department of the State University was one of the first in the United States to adopt the four years ' term of study. No student can present himself for final examination until he has attended faithfullv four annual courses of medical lectures and clinics. Graduates of accredited literary and scientific colleges are admitted to the second course without examination. FEES.

XLVIH LOUIS ROESC P N -co " This is the House that Roesch built ' AND I.IKK " JACK ' S " FA.MOFS HOl ' SK OF THE GOOD OJ.D XCRSKRY TALK, IT HAS ITS HISTORY. START WITH, we weren ' t always full-grown. For that matter, we don ' t consider ourselves full-grown even now. We expect to grow bigger what suc- cessful business establishment does not ? But we were little once, awfully little just " so high! " That was back in the early days of San Francisco, when we were very infantile in- deed hardly out of " short dresses. " We were just a little printing shop then, an adjunct to the CALIFORNIA DEMOCRAT at first, and afterwards under the sole guardianship of Ludwig Rosenthal until 1880, when Louis Roesch became interested in helping us grow. Like the turnip in Longfellow ' s first poem, we grew too big for our original home, and moved into more spacious quarters at 419 Sacramento street, corner Sansome. We became specialists, the one all-important thing being the satisfying of our customers. That was, and 415 BUSH STREET 419 SACRAMENTO STREET is, our specialty. Good work aiways pleases. We did good work. We were not infallible, of course, and so we made mistakes sometimes. But we profited by those mistakes and never made them a second time. It ' s a bad thing to make a mistake. But it ' s a great deal worse if, having once made a mistake, you refuse to imbibe the lesson it teaches. We weren ' t too old to learn. And so we learned. Good comes from mistakes in that way. We grew, of course like every healthy infant with good, sound little legs to stand on. Our legs or rather, our foundations, to be more literal were, from the first, made up of the best type, the most substantial ink, the most careful, con- scientious workmanship. That forms a trinity of essentials in first-class printing. And that ' s why we grew. Twelve years in those dingy, old quarters on Sacramento street ! That was a long time to stay there we realize that fact now. But, in spite of the lack of sunshine, our growth wasn ' t dwarfed. On the contrary, we grew in all directions. We purchased an entire new outfit of presses in 1896, and a vast quantity of type and materials. The work we were continually turning out attracted attention. It ' s unfailing merit displayed a determination to achieve the very best results. We were growing in experience, in abili- ty, in skill, in workmanship in reputation. The growing pains set in and we had to move again in the spring of 1897. Not very far just across the street on the west side ; but what a change ! We occupy the entire upper floor and attic of the handsome, new building, erected on the site of the old American Exchange Hotel. Our new home was built and arranged in accordance with our ideas plenty of room and light. I. ..

We employ only the most competent pressmen, proof-readers, compositors and artists; we use only the finest types and the most brilliant and harmonious inks; we do no work that isn ' t high-class. And our prices are no higher than if you were having INFERIOR printing done. A thoroughly modern printing shop may be an object of some interest to you, even if you have no printing done. You are invited to come and see us. Yours very truly, Louis ROESCH COMPANY. San Francisco, 1899.
