The 1 908 Blue and Gold Copyrighted 1907 by Maurice Edward Harrison and Joel Harry Jenkins. GQL The 1908 Blue and Gold of the University of California THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA ANNUAL PUBLISHED BY THE JUNIOR CLASS IN THE YEAR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SEVEN THE 1908 BLUE AND GOLD is dedicated to PROFESSOR MARTIN CHARLES FLAHERTY ' 96 HERE is a record of the past college year of its hardships and its ill-luck, of its compen- sating joys. The activities which we outline here meant more to us than merely a few games, for they have taught us all a lesson of comradeship and devotion to our Alma Mater. If these pages help us in any degree not to forget this lesson, they have ac- complished their purpose.

By VICTOR HENDERSON. TO raise and establish standards of conduct and of judgment, to create taste, to rouse right ambitions and to equip the mind with true measures of happiness and of success these are chief functions of a university, and its growth must be measured by increase in these powers. The student body grows more and more a responsible community, with standards of action and public consciousness of its own. The mass meetings for popular discussion, the uses of Senior Hall, the University Meetings, the launching by the students themselves of an endeavor to provide dormitories all these are aspects of genuine progress. To provide standards of taste in literature has long been a function of the University, and now it has begun to set before the community standards of taste in architecture and in music. The establishment of a department of architecture, with a six-year course, as compared with a four-year course in architecture at Columbia, Pennsylvania, Cornell, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other leading architectural schools of America, means the training of architects of high standards, of men fitted to adorn the cities of the West with buildings worthy of the future. No such buildings, whether in constructive merit, in permanence, or in artistic worth, have before been built in California as the Hearst Mining Building and California Hall. Students who spend four years in such an architectural atmosphere as is being created on this campus will go forth into the world with standards established as to what good building means, with appreciation of simplicity and pro- portion and dignity, of the expression in matter of thought that is thought through, of artistic intention and consummation as contrasted with haphazard carelessness, indiffer- ence, and sham. In music and the drama, too, does the University now set standards before its students and the community. Only in Berkeley and in Los Angeles of all the Pacific Coast can music be heard regularly in its highest expression the great orchestral forms. With the establishment of the University Orchestra and the University Chorus, the students through the four formative years of their college life have the opportum ' ty of intimate acquaintance with the master-works, fitly rendered in the noble surroundings of the Greek Theater. Their lives are enriched thereby with abiding memories, with new powers of appreciation and of enlightened happiness. For the body as for the spirit the care of the University is increasing. The new baths and dressing-rooms are a revelation to those who remember the old training-quarters and gymnasium baths. The establishment of the infirmary and the daily consultation hours of the department of hygiene mean the most complete and timely care for every student in case of illness, while the instruction for every student in public as well as personal hygiene will fill the State with missionaries for dean cities and pure water, for pure foods and proper public regulation of matters affecting the general health. For the things of the mind that the University should expend $150,000 to equip the department of history with adequate printed and manuscript material for research iri the history of Western America is surely significant of progress. The Bancroft Library is an incomparable treasure-house of primary historical matenal, and its purchase is an emphasis upon that prime function of a university the advance- ment of knowledge. The establishment of San Diego Marine Biological Laboratory in permanent quarters, through the generosity of Miss EJlen B. Scripps, and the gift to the University, by the Pacific Improvement Company, of lands at Chinatown Point on Monterey Bay, as a site for Professor Loeb ' s seaside laboratory of experi- mental physiology, are new developments of the University ' s equipment for research. The purchase of a University Farm of eight hundred acres, near Davisville, represents an interesting development of the University ' s equipment for agricultural instruction, while the bequest to the University by Mr. M. Theo. Kearney of fifty- four hundred acres of land near Fresno will provide an endowment of over a million dollars for agricultural experimentation and instruction. The Kearney endowment and the gift by Mrs. Marie Louise Mackay and Mr. Clarence Hungerford Mackay of $100,000 to endow the John W. Mackay, Jr. Professorship of Electrical Engineering increase the University endowment to a total of four and three-quarters millions, of this endowment 57.2 per cent, was created by private generosity, 17.38 per cent, came from the state, and 16.88 per cent, from the United States. Private gifts to the University have exceeded nine millions; that is, they have been nearly tenfold what any other American state university has received. The University can now count on an annual income of about eight hundred thousand dollars, of which about six hundred and thirty thousand dollars is available for the current educational and administrative expenses. Of the receipts for 1 905-06, 26.7 per cent, came as gifts from private individuals, 1 7.7 per cent, from income on endowment, 3.7 per cent, from the United States, 43.4 per cent, from the state, 5.2 per cent, from the students, and 3.3 per cent, from all other sources. The vote of the Legislature to remove the capital from Sacramento to Berkeley was one of the important events of the University year. Such a removal would make available for the needs of the University the splendid, rapidly-growing, and well-supported State Library, and give to the students increased opportunity to know how California is governed and administered. California. By A. E. ANDERSON , ' 08. QUEEN of the oaks and the poppies. Queen of the strong and the fair, Here, on the breast of the hill-side. Rear we thy flag of the bear. Out of the strong cometh sweetness. Forth from the hills dawneth day, Fair thou shalt lift us and guide us, Strong thou art ' stablished for aye! Hail from our hearts, California, Far through thine oaks let it ring! Wreathing thy brows with the poppies, Thee do we honor and sing. Thine be an image of beauty Shrined in our hearts for a light, Strength of thy strength be within us Strength for the true and the right! 1HE F By PROFESSOR HENRY MORSE STEPHENS. THIS is not intended to be a record of what happened in Berkeley or in the University during the " Great Days " of April, 1 906, the days of the fire in San Francisco, which followed upon the earthquake of April 1 8 ; nor is it intended to be an account of personal impressions, since the writer remained at Berkeley throughout the period ; least of all is it intended to be a full and complete account of the various activities into which the University, as well as the citizens of Berkeley, were suddenly plunged in their desire to do what lay in them to alleviate the distress produced by the very suddeness of the calamity in the city of San Francisco. The compilation of a record of what happened has been the chief business of the present writer, as a member of the History Committee appointed by the Committee of Fifty, for many months past, and he does not think that the editor of the " Blue and Gold " would thank him for a mere extract from the forthcoming history ; the personal impressions of a " stay-at-home, " whose anxieties were con- centrated from the first moment upon the safety of the Bancroft Library in San Francisco, and upon the collection of materials for the history which he contemplated from the very first, are of no especial value ; and the statistics of the relief work accomplished belong to another place. This article therefore will only touch lightly upon certain general aspects of the effect of the " Great Days " upon the University community. The first impression made upon the minds of those members of the University who reside in Berkeley was that of the shghtness of the damage done by the earth- quake to the buildings of the University upon the morning of April 1 8. In the stillness of the morning hours, produced by the cessation of all traffic, it could be seen that, while chimneys of Berkeley had suffered and particularly that the High School had been badly rent, the buildings of the University stood intact, except for the overthrowing of one or two chimney pots. So sound did the University itself appear that attempts were made to hold classes during the eight o ' clock period and it was not until later in the morning that the seriousness of the situation in San Francisco began to be appreciated. Then and not till then did the members of the University realize how splendidly their buildings had stood the shock, and in the days that followed when the extent of the wreck of the buildings at Stanford began to be realized, the splendid work of the builders of both the old and new buildings of the University of California became a subject of pride and thankfulness to all who had ever been connected with the State University. But while we may echo a year afterwards our gratitude to architects and builders, old and new, for the way in which they placed our foundations upon the rock, yet we should remember that a University is more than its buildings and bear in mind that the income of the University has been seriously affected by the events of last April. The details of the loss the University suffered through the fire in San Francisco can be seen in the last report of the Secretary of the University. The details can be read there, and it is enough to say here that in addition to the loss of the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art and to other direct losses amounting to nearly $36,000.00, the income of the University has been reduced by nearly $ 1 00,000.00 a year through the burning of income-producing buildings in the city of San Francisco. The State -met this loss of the University for the remaining months of 1 906 by a special grant made by the emergency Legislature of $83,800.00, which enabled the University to continue its work without impairment of its efficency to the end of the year. " A University is more than its buildings, " yes, and a University lives by more than its money income ; the real effect of " the great days " of April has been upon the souls of those who dwelt in Berkeley last April. It has been said with justice that the disasters of last Apnl are more mem- orable for the spirit of gay courage and of " earthquake love, " which manifested itself in all classes in San Francisco, than for the material damage done by earthquake and by fire. It is good for every man and woman and for every community to pass at times through periods of strain and stress in order to try their nerve and to see that what is best and most courageous in them shall have opportunity to express itself. As the years roll by the memory of the " great days " of April will stand out as giving proof of California courage and California gayety of heart ; plenty of legends will arise and imagination will probably place haloes upon wrong heads and bring into light the wrong heroes, but for all that there will remain the ineffaceable memory of having passed through a great crisis. It will be no small thing in the future that can shake the courage and the belief in the sympathy of man for man in the hearts of those who lived through the " great days " of last April. Two things stand out in the experiences of the members of the University who dwelt in Berkeley, first, the dispatch of the University cadets to aid in maintaining order in San Francisco and second, the swift organization of relief for refugees upon the campus of the University. Early on the 1 8th of April the rumor flew about that martial law had been established in San Francisco and later came a rumor that the University cadets were to be given the opportunity to show whether their military training made them of the slightest use to the community at large. There exists some haziness as to the precise circumstances that led to the dispatch of the cadets to the city. But it is quite certain that at an early hour upon the 1 8th of April the idea of being of use occured to the fertile mind of Colonel Force and that a request for the military services of the cadets was brought to Berkeley and received by Captain Nance, who decided to act, upon the direct authorization of Prof. Stringham, acting as president of the University in the absence of President Wheeler, who was at that time on his way to Texas to deliver an address at the inauguration of the new president of the University of Texas. It had been inspection day for the cadets and the men were almost expecting a summons. The summons came in the course of the afternoon ; the cadets reached San Francisco after dark in the evening ; they were allotted to a particular section of the city between the areas assigned to the regular soldiers and the California National Guard. In the city they remained for two nights and two days doing regular guard duty and reassuring the citizens by their presence. This is not the place to go into details of the military experiences of the University cadets. It is enough to say that unjust rumors were spread about the state as to their conduct, rumors which can be authoritatively denied. Not only is there in existence a testimonial signed by many hundreds of citizens of the guarded district, testifying to the good behaviour of the University soldiers, but out of the thousands of accounts of experiences collected by the History Committee of the Committee of Fifty, not more than one or two speak slightingly of the University cadets, while many hundreds of them speak in the highest praise of the gentlemanly and kindly conduct of the University boys. After long and harassing guard duty the cadets returned wearied and tired out, but conscious of having passed through an experience such as has never before been afforded to any battalion of cadets in any State University in America. Nor was their service without its casualties. Private Aten of the class of 1 908 was severely wounded in the course of duty, though it is satisfactory to be able to report that he has since recovered. If the men students of the University had their opportunity in helping to guard the city, the women students expressed their energies in the help that they gave to the refugees. Perhaps a defense of coeducation may be found here. Most certainly a community of men students could not have washed the clothes of the refugees, and even the refugees themselves, could not have cooked for them, and could not have taken care of the babies, in the way that the women students did. Hearst Hall was turned into a lying-in hospital, and the kindly administration of the women students of the University of California will long be gratefully remembered by the refugees from San Francisco who made their way to Berkeley. It was no slight work to provide for those thousands of scared beings, and though the citizens of Berkeley did nobly in throwing open their houses and providing food and clothing for the thousands of refugees, it was the women students of the University of California who took upon themselves the kindly care of the refugees in the relief camps. Never will the aspect of the University campus in April, 1906, be forgotten. If the members of the Legislature of the State of California had visited Berkeley during the last days of April, 1 906, they would have been proud of the institution that the State of California maintains and would have realized that the sons and daughters of the State who get their education here learn more than Latin and Greek, than physics and mathematics, that they learn how swiftly to organize, when a crisis in human affairs calls, to afford protection, aid, and sympathy in time of need. The Passing of Naught Seven. By_ WITHIN a few short weeks the class of 1907 will have left the university and be a thing of the past as far as campus activities are concerned. Some of its members have become prominent in college, others have rather grown notorious. HDW long will they be remembered, even by the members of the present freshman class? When 1907 were freshmen there were two brothers in college. One Ligda was a track man, the other was simply a Russian. At one of our first field days, Victor Ligda was a close second near the finish of a race. Brother Paul jumped up on the bleachers and called : " Run, Victor, run. Maybe he vill fall down and denn you vill beat him ! " From that day on Ligda was as well known about North Hall as Abadie ' 04, or any of the other men who really made records. We Seniors can look back and clearly see in memory the men who loomed largest in college affairs or whose names were most often on the college tongue when we came to college. Some have quite dropped from sight, others are more or less prominent in various occupations. Every class has men who, at the time of their work, it seems would last forever in California traditions. When we came to Berkeley we looked upon " Dick " O ' Connor ' 04 as a deity whose heights we could never hope to attain. How often do you hear his name mentioned to-day ? He hung around, smoked a pipe and didn ' t know if he ever would graduate, just like Al Fletcher ' 07. He is over in San Francisco now. Not many know it, for he is doing hard work on the big dailies. J. G. White ' 05 and L. D. Bohnett ' 06, former Californian editors who raised a little stir in their time are remembered by but few. William L. Finley " 03 was an astute politician as well as editor of the Calif ornian in his senior year. He has attained fame as an ornithologist since, and his articles on bird-life, illustrated by rare photos of birds on the wing, are prominent in many eastern magazines. California probably never had an athletic idol so worshiped as was " Ovie " Overall, ex ' 04. His salary as a professional baseball pitcher in the big Eastern league has just been raised $500 per year. Arthur L. Price ' 04, who edited the Blue and Gold for his class after Wyllis Peck left college to go to China, has made good as a newspaper man in the Scripps- McRae Newspaper League. He attained special eminence at the time of the San Francisco earthquake. Bruce Wright ' 03, once president of the A. S. U. C., is now principal of a grammar school in Alameda. George Mansfield ' 03, another editor of the Cali- fornian, is in charge of a daily in Oroville. Sam Stow 04 was a hero in college and has proved his mettle since. He recently received a Car- negie medal for rescuing a man from drowning in a lake near the paper mill where Stow is employed in Ore- gon. When we were fresh- men Max Thelen was head of the student body. A debater, a student leader and class medalist his record in college was a long one. He went to Harvard after graduating and having com- pleted his law work there, is now practicing in San Fran- cisco. " Happy " Dehm ' 05 of whom more anon, succeeded him as president and then came Prent Gray ' 06. Ralph Merritt, the present incumbent, is one of the few men who start out as a leader and remain in front throughout their four years ' course. His remarks at a recent University meeting concerning the death of a graduate, Reno Hutchinson ' 00, were made with a simple sincerity which showed him at his best. The men who were at the front in the class of 1 906 are of course known to all of the present generation except the freshmen. Jackson Gregory, who edited the Blue and Gold for that class is now teaching at lone. William Cooper, their senior president is now with the Southern Pacific Company in San Francisco. " 5am " Hellman the famous yellow journalist of 1906 is wandering the world around, still in quest of journalistic " dope. " Rumor has it that he is to meet Edwin Loeb ex- ' 08 in London. Farnham Griffiths, one of the Phi Beta Kappa men of 1 906 is to leave in October for Oxford where he will study for two years as Rhodes scholar from California. Among all the recent classes, elections brought forth men who will be remem- bered for a long time. " Billy " Cnttenden ' 05 has gone to Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. Al Coogan ' 06, Junior president was as prominent a politician as he was an athlete. As yell leader Phil Carey ' 04 be- came so well known that he is still prominent on the campus. Ed Roadhouse ' 04 was his assistant and usually led the singing at university meetings during his senior year. " Buck " ' 05 held the yelling arena during the next year, and was followed by the " Gold Dust Twins, " Walter de Leon ' 06 and Ted Rust ' 06. These two yelled, sang or played clown with equal ease and were always popular. But to return to 1907. It is peculiar in many ways. It always could have done without " Pelly. " If we wanted to laugh, for a long time we surely had plenty to laugh at. There was that " Ophelia " Clark who rewrote Shakespeare and turned our Filipino into a Chinaman (of which he was very proud), made a skeleton out of " Jim " Rhea, and forced the whole audience to laugh at himself, not to mention many others. Of the men who started with 1907 a number who gave promise of doing well left altogether too soon. Claud Kern in football and track, Harry Lane in journalism and tennis and Kenneth Hamilton in baseball, filled gaps which have never since been filled. To be sure there is Bert Campbell, of several classes ago, who couldn ' t resist waiting for ' 07 to graduate, but one good man for many is hardly a fair exchange. Out of the many who still remain with the class there are some real wonders. For example there is Julius Klein. " A beardless youth of nineteen summers " (to quote the San Francisco Bulletin, I he wrote that wonderful essay about the treaty which dosed the Mexican war. He protests strongly about the " beardless " pro- position, but on what grounds his friends can never see. R. R. Rankin has done a few stunts of his own, " Bill " Davis can still play the violin, S. Y. L. M., etc., Jee handles the Oriental vote to perfection and in journalism has taken the place once held by Jiro Harada ' 05. " Shorty " Sherman is over six feet tall and made Phi Beta Kappa, Maynard McFie helped kill the Psi U bear, " Jack " Fletcher works for Henry Morse and can always afford cigars, and Ejle Daveler bloomed out wonderfully at the opening of Senior Hall. In military 1907 saw many changes. It saw the passing of Colonel Waite and the revolution which attended the crowning of " rex Nance. " Shortly after that revolution " Bill " Hale ' 05 took a run down to the ranch at San Diego, and Robert Hays Van Sant, Jr., decided that another year of military training might be beneficial and ensure his graduation. W. B. Weston has made his shoulder straps, King Sweesy is still the star of the band which S. Frederick Long ' 07 improved so much. That last name reminds me of a funny little story. About the time the 1907 Blue and Gold went to press, S. Frederick rushed into the San Francisco office one day. " Where is Gabbert ? " demanded the bandmaster. The editor promptly appeared. " Gabbert, I don ' t think you are treating me right. I hear you haven ' t much money to spend and won ' t run my picture with the band story in the B G. Now. if money is all the difficulty; I ' ll pay for my own cut. " The bargain was made, and a few days afterwards the cut came around. It was a whole page affair. Of course there was no room for it, and Long soon found it out. He went to the press room foreman, explained that he had been given an unfair deal, paid a little money, bought candy for the proof readers, and had an extra page inserted, as he thought, without the knowledge of the editors. If the book had ever appeared wouldn ' t Long have been pleased to find that picture in the josh department with a little wnte up of how it all happened ? Our class had the unenviable privilege of seeing the big stir on the campus, caused by the appearance thereon of three Blue and Golds, but not of its own. " Gene " Hallett ' 05 got out the biggest book ever, after which he didn ' t want to beat " Heiny " Heitmuller for class prex, but just took the job anyhow. As secretary to the President he has since been succeeded by F. P. Griffiths ' 06, who now in turn is to be followed by Ralph Merritt ' 07. " Happy " Dehm ' 05, who helped Hallett get out the monster book, became A. S. U. C. president and then a lawyer. M. J. Samuels ' 05, who managed the finances, is also a lawyer. As far as 1907 is concerned, we hope our book would not have been used to start fires had it ever been published, for the general opinion is that it was worthy of a better end. Librarian Rowell is making a good custodian of the remains, while the first Senior Record has in a way compensated for the loss. So we have come to an end. On the checker board of college life various figures who allied themselves with 1907 have moved hither and thither, played their little parts, and now, with the many who have gone before, are about to pass into the great outside world, to be merely passing memories in this little world which knew them for four short years. CULTURL COLLEGE OF LETTERS ALTHOTGH its enrollment is comparatively small, the College of Letters is the oldest of all the colleges of the University. It was originally based on the old idea of affording an all-around general education. Although in a modified form, it still aims at a liberal education based on literary and classical work, and is the only college which insists on the entrance requirement of Latin and Greek. Its first two years of prescribed work in general culture courses are the tasis for the junior and senior work, which is along some line selected by the individual student. COLLEGE OF SOCIAL SCIENCES FROM ITS foundation, the College of Social Sciences has boasted of the largest enrollment of students, increasing from 2 1 students in 1 882 to a total of 1056 in 1905. It embodies the more recent theories of university edu- cation. Although a college of general culture, it omits Greek and no longer insists on Latin. Providing as it does a wide choice of humanistic studies, its work ex- tends ever the great field of literary, linguistic, historical and economic subjects. COLLEGE OF COMMERCE THE WORLD of commerce and finance looks with greater and greater confidence towards the graduates of our universities, and they in turn have begun to shape their work to suit this demand. In recognizing the need for trained men, the University of California has been foremost, and in 1 898 the College of Commerce was founded. Since that time its growth has been steady. Its course enables the student to become acquainted with such subjects as trans- portation, banking, insurance and the civil, consular and diplomatic service. ;Seieptific Qollege s COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES THE MOST popular of the scientific colleges is the College of Natural Sciences. Its scope covers the broad field of general science, viewed, how- ever, from the standpoint of general culture rather than that of close techni- cal study. It combines with its scientific work a study of the arts and languages necessary for intelligent scientific research. The pre-medical course is a part of this college, and is only one instance of its many-sided work. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE THE ROUGH, unlettered tiller of the soil is rapidly becoming a figure of the past. The world of agriculture now demands a man who can put farming on a scientific basis, who can replenish a famished soil, and who can change a desert from barrenness into productivity. This is the aim of the College of Agriculture. Its course is designed for students wishing either a general culture course, with the principal work m agriculture, or for those wishing a course more restricted to technical agriculture and natural sciences. The new University Farm makes it possible for practical farming to go hand in hand with the theoretical. COLLEGE OF CHEMISTRY THE College of Chemistry was formerly a college wherein one registered to get a general scientific course. However, the constantly increasing demand for professional chemists, for men who have made a specialty of chemistry in its various branches, has brought about the necessity of having a college devoted entirely to technical chemistry, and to those subjects which have a bearing on it. COLLEGE OF MINING. WITH the completion of the Hearst Mining building, California boasts of the best equipped College of Mining in the world. When the opportunities offered for practical work in the great mines of California are considered along with the splendid laboratories of this new building, it will be seen that here as nowhere else are facilities for the student of mining engineering to master thoroughly his professson. The degree of B. S. is granted after four years of work in the college combined with a summer spent in practical work in the mines and the writing of a thesis. COLLEGE OF CIVIL ENGINEERING. IN 1872, Frank Soule was appointed Professor of Civil Engineering, and from that year dates the existence of the College of that name. Professor Soule has remained continuously at the head of the college and under his guidance it has obtained facilities and equipment of the highest order. Four years ' work in the course which is largely prescribed and covers thoroughly the field of Civil Engineering leads to the degree of B. S. COLLEGE OF MECHANICS. THIS YEAR has been marked by the greatest single event in the progress of the College of Mechanics since its organization in 1 875. This event was the endowment of college with a fund of $ 1 00,000 to be devoted chiefly to the investigation of electrical problems. The donor of the gift is Clarence W. Mackay. This gift added to the present equipment of the college ensures to those who receive the degree of B. S. after four years work in the college, that they have received the very best possible training for their life work. ftailiat HASTINGS COLLEGE OF THE LAW. HASTINGS College of the Law was founded in 1878 by Judge S. C. Hastings, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of California. The three year ' s course is made up of formal lectures on the general principles of jurisprudence as well as its special divisions, and a satisfactory completion of the course entitles the student to practice in any court in the State without further examination. No small feature of the work of the College is to train the students in the most practical manner for the management of cases in court In compliance with the terms of the bequest for its founding the College is maintained in San Francisco. COLLEGE OF MEDICINE. BEGINNING with August 1 906 a most important change was made in the course of study of this College. Instruction in the first two years work is now given entirely in Berkeley instead of in San Francisco as heretofore. A part of the building formerly occupied by the College of Mining is now devoted to the laboratories and lecture rooms of the College of Medicine. The last two years instruction is given in San Francisco where access to the City and County hospital affords the students most valuable clinical practice. A three years pre-medical course in the College of Natural Sciences is now required for admission into the College. COLLEGE OF DENTISTRY. THE success achieved in that profession by the alumni of the College of Dentistry is the best indication of the thorough training which its modem equipment and capable staff of instructors affords. A high standard of excellence has been set and consistently maintained by the faculty during the 27 years of the college ' s existance. Entrance requirements the same as those for entrance into the Academic Colleges at Berkeley are demanded for admission and the curriculum covers thoroughly all departments of knowledge requisite for the practice of dentistry. COLLEGE OF PHARMACY. WHILE the College of Pharmacy has practically managed its own affairs and has received but little financial aid from the University since its affiliation nearly forty years ago, it has nevertheless advanced steadily. It is located in one of the Affiliated Colleges buildings near Golden Gate park, San Francisco, and has there admirable facilities for teaching the general principles of chemistry as well as the special features of the science relating to the elements used in medicine, domestic life and some of the arts. In recent years the study of organic chemistry which now plays such an important part in pharmacy has been a notable part of the curriculum. MARK HOPKINS INSTITUTE OF ART. AMONG the almost irreparable losses caused to the University and the State by the great fire of April 1 8, 1 906, was the total destruction of the building occupied by the Mark Hopkins Institute of Art together with most of its contents. There seems no immediate prospects that it will be possible to rebuild the structure and so the Institute remains closed. No hope is dearer to the art loving public than that the Institute, once th e center and fountain head of the best California afforded in art may somehow be restored and reopened. LICK OBSERVATORY. IN the year 1875 James Lick of San Francisco endowed the University with $700,000 for the purpose of founding an astronomical observatory. This splendid sum together with grants of land made by Congress was sufficient to purchase 2600 acres of land on Mount Hamilton in Santa Clara County and to build thereon an observatory in which is housed one of the largest telescopes in the world. The observers stationed there have with the aid of this instrument made some of the most notable recent discoveries in astronomy. In addition to the graduate instruction in astronomy offered to advanced students at the Mount Hamilton Observatory there is a course of undergraduate instruction in the subject carried on in Berkeley. THE WORK being done along the lines of University Extension in the Uni- versity of California is of a magnitude and importance hardly appreciated by the students. In fact many of them have no idea what University Extension means, while the ideas of others are at least very vague. Since its formation in the summer of 1 902 the department, under the direc- tion of Professor Henry Morse Stephens, has had a healthy and consistent devel- opment. From possessing one lecturer on its staff and including in its scope only five centers in ihe year 1902-1903, it now numbers, in 1907, six lecturers and a librarian and conducts lecture courses in twenty-one centers. It is because these centers consist of cities of various sizes situated in practically every part of California that the value of the department is so great. Thus the educational and intellectual atmosphere and influence of the University is not limited to one certain locality, but is carried by this means to the scattered homes of the citizens of the State. Those who pay taxes to support the University are brought into closer touch with i t and are given a share in its educational beneSts. The department goes about its work in the following way: Courses of lec- tures, with classes for study, are given wherever University Extension centers may be organized, and the control and selection of these courses is left entirely to the committees of the various local centers. Each course consists of twelve lectures on days and in places chosen by the local committee, and University credit after regu lar examinations is given for work done in the University Extension classes. The department is entirely self-supporting, the moderate fees charged for lecture courses paying not only the salaries of lecturers, but also traveling expenses, and the printing of syllabuses and other literature. The same fund has provided the department with i valuable library of several hundred volumes. University Extension centers are a part of the University organization, and those in charge are considered officers of the University. UNIVERSITY FARM THE California legislature of 1905 made an appropriation of $150,000 for the purchase and equipment of a University farm and to provide instruction in agriculture in connection therewith. The selection and purchase of the farm was made by a commission: George C. Pardee, Benjamin Ide Wheeler, Alden Anderson, B. F. Rush and Ellwood Cooper. Upwards of seventy sites were carefully examined and reported upon by an expert appointed by the com- mission, and the commission visited in a body a considerable number of them. A tract of about 780 acres of first-class valley land contiguous to the town of Davis- ville io Yolo county was finally selected by unanimous vote of the commission and purchased for $103,290. The land is upon the established irrigation system of the Yolo Consolidated Water Company, and water rights covering the whole acreage were purchased by the citizens of Davisville for $3,895.53 and donated to the University. Thus was secured a splendid plant both for demonstrative and experimen tal agriculture. It is the most important single contribution which the State has ever made to the development of agricultural education. It will supplement all that has been accomplished on the scientific side by furnishing ample opportunity for instruc- tion in farm policy and practice which have not been adequately provided for hitherto. In the future the University students in the agricultural course will be brought face to face with the practical problems of production, and instruction therein will be given concreteness and directness. There will be also the fullest attention paid to the short courses in the various branches of farming which will enable both old and young to devote themselves for a few weeks or months to studies of the best and most profitable ways to handle plants and animals and to satisfy themselves that these advanced ways are best, because they embody the latest science involved in each operation and because the quality and market value of the product demonstrate its economic superiority. The instruction on the farm will neither duplicate the courses nor the equipment at Berkeley. At Berkeley the work will be chiefly analytical the taking of things to pieces to learn the character and relations of the parts. At the farm the work will be, in a sense, chiefly syn- thetical the connection of the parts, the building up of the highest orders of finished products. In this way the University farm will serve all classes of students, both young and old, and will afford each, according to his needs, instruction which no other State institution provides. It will not duplicate, nor be a substitute for, high school or college, but will be supplementary to all institutions which undertake to associate agriculture in any form with other educational subjects. This rich inheritance which comes to the College of Agriculture of the University of California must be taken as evidence of full recognition and appreciation of two things. First, the research work and the popular presentation of its results, by Professor Hilgard and his staff during the last third of a century has convinced the people of California that the fullest knowledge of California conditions of climate, soils and cultures must be had for intelligent and profitable pursuit of the industries which are based upon them. Second, that the equipment and facilities of the College of Agriculture for teaching the practical arts in accordance with the scientific demonstration of local conditions were pitiably meager and inadequate. Hence arose the popular demand that the College should undertake instruction in California farm practice on much broader lines and that it should do this under actual farming conditions on an easily accessible and widely representative farm and should adapt such instruction to the needs and requirements both of those already enlisted in agriculture and of those who intend to secure livelihood directly from the soil. The Regents of the University have proceeded energetically with the equipment of the University Farm as an instructional adjunct of the College of Agriculture. The balance of the original appropriation is being used for the construction of a fully equipped commercial creamery, a large live stock pavilion which will also serve as a general auditorium, two cottages for residence of instructors and foremen, and the purchase of live stock. The legislature of 1907 appropriated $132,000 for additional buildings which will include a grand farm house for dormitory purposes and special structures for horticulture and viticulture, as well as barns, sheds and shops. It will also provide for large and varied plantings of trees and vines, for a system of irrigation to carry water to all parts of the farm, for the compensation of instructors and for general maintenance. Courses of instruction are now being prepared and instructional outfits being provided for them. As soon as possible a full descriptive announcement of instruction will be published and it is anticipated that the Uni- versity Farm will be opened for students during the coming autumn.

THE Alumni Association of the University of California is the oldest of the graduate organizations. The membership of the Association consists of all those who have taken a full four-years ' course and have graduated from one of the academic colleges at Berkeley. The aim of this association is to advance the interests of the University and promote a feeling of good-fellowship among its graduates. OFFICERS. President George R.

THE Associated Graduate Students was organized in 1895, and during the last eleven years has included many names more or less known throughout the university circles of the United States. The graduate students come in many cases from other universities, and have very little in common with each other. It is the object of this Association to counter- act this, and it does it by informal meetings held during the college year. These meetings take the form of social affairs, with occasional lectures. This Association is governed by a President and an Executive Committee. The officers for this year are as follows : President J. W. Morrin, ' 05 Vice-President - W. S. Andrews, ' 06 Secretary Miss Margaret E. Moore, ' 04 Treasurer R. O. Reiner, ' 04 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The officers and the following : Professor Alexis F. Lange Faculty Representative Francis E. Kellog Oberlin, 04 Miss Mildred Hudson - Pomona, ' 06 Oliver Youngs ' 04 THE Associated Students is the central organization of the whole University, having ultimate control over every student activity. It is composed of those students, rren and women, who pay the fee of one dollar per year. The Association has complete charge of all athletic contests and the gr ound on which they take place. The President is also chairman of the Undergraduate Students ' Affairs Committee, and as such is the representative of the students in all their relations to the faculty. The Executive Committee of the Associated Students must sanction every students ' function before it can take place ; it makes all agreements with Stanford and other Universities concerning athletics, and in fact every student activity ; and it has charge of other student activities such as music, chess and debating. The position of graduate manager is the only one to which there is a salary at- tached. The manager acts as treasurer of the association as well as negatiator in all affairs between the students and the public at large. He contracts all debts for the association and furnishes the necessary supplies to carry on its affairs. The most im- portant work done this year by the graduate manager was the enlarging of California Field to accommodate the new Rugby game. This gives us not only the best foot- ball f.eld on the Coast, but also the best baseball diamond. The work will cost about $7,500, which added to the present debt of $9,000, brings the total indebt- edness up to about $16,500. It is estimated that this will be paid off in about two years. It is also planned to add new bleachers at the northern end of the field, but this will not be done immediately, as it is not desired to add to the debt already on hand. The Mandolin Club has been entirely reorganized and put on a sound business basis under the management of the Association. Among other affairs the rallies have been successfully carried out by the committees to which they have been entrusted. Here, as in all college affairs, the President acts through committees appointed by him, and much of the success of the administration rests on their selection. The fol- lowing committees have successfully carried on the work for the present year : Intercollegiate Agreement Committee: R. H. Van Sant, Jr., ' 07, chairman; E. J. Brown, ' 98, O. F. Snedigar, ' 06. Debating Committee: J. F. Pullen, ' 07, chairman; R. M. Searles, ' 07, M. E. Harrison, ' 08. Chess Committee: C. J. Gibbs, ' 07, chairman; R. L. Egenhoff, ' 08, C. E.

F. Snedigar, ' 06 VERY definite and important place in the University has been given the As- sociated Women Students by the policy it has pursued in this, the twelfth year of its existence. The organization now exercises supervision over all the activities which are en- tered into by women exclusively. To secure the active interest of every woman in the University in at least one of these activities has been the end sought for by the administration the past year, and gratifying success has resulted. The year began with a mass meeting of the women on the basket ball court. Eight hundred attended. From that time interest never lagged. In athletics a well contested tennis tournament, a hard fought inter-class basket ball series for a cup and many boat races brought out more participants than ever before. The organiza- tion of " The Players " with 150 members was the notable event in dramatics. At each of the four meetings of the Associated Women Students during the year a play was given by this organization. Music for these plays was furnished by the Women ' s Guitar and Mandolin Club which was reorganized and strenghtened by the addition of violins, and by the Treble Clef now also conducted under the auspices of the Associated Women Students. As organized at present the membership of the Associated Women Students includes all the women students in the University, but active membership is restricted to those who pay the annual dues of one dollar to the Associated Students. Seventy- five cents of each dollar so paid is allowed to the women to help support their par- ticular activities. The affairs of the organization are managed by an executive com- mittee composed of its regularly elected officers and the presidents of the various subordinate women ' s organizations. The committee is composed as follows : President First Vice- President Second Vice- President Treasurer Secretary President of Prytaneans Mask and Dagger Guitar and Mandolin Club Treble Clef Cornelia Stratton, ' 07 Edith Rickley, ' 07 Lily Wright, ' 07 Grace Thomas, ' 08 Margaret Summers, ' 09 - Ruth Salinger, ' 07 Louise Menefee, ' 07 Anna Barney, ' 07 Alice Weymouth, ' 07 Class Presidents.

WHEN the class of 1907 made its debut upon the California campus, it contained in embryonic form many men who have made their mark in the annals of college history. Though many of our most noted athletes and erstwhile presidents have gone the way of Claude Kern and Frank Caminetti, we still have with us a number of notables who have helped to make our class a famous one. Where is the class that can boast of a more eloquent orator than Norman Eisner, a more astute politician than Ralph Merritt, a man of more Herculean pro- portions than Calvin Haffey ? Despite the ravages of Jimmy Sutton and the Student Affairs committee, we still have such noted journalists as Al Fletcher, Gurden Edwards, and Ray Gabbert.

Here ' s to the junior red. fit-re ' s to our junior jollity. THE year was 1948, the place Alumni Hall. The surviving members of the class of 1908 were drowsing over the remnants of their fortieth annual banquet. As they sipped their wine they grew reminiscent of old California day, and they listened with attentive pleasure to the elderly gentleman at one end of the hall who was addressing them : " Don ' t you know, fellows, I sometimes think that our freshman year was about as pleasant 35 any of the four. Think of the rough-houses. Why, bless you, naught-eight never did go down in defeat, and we had the last genuine fight to hold our class election, too. You fellows all remember sturdy Oscar Kittenbach, our sergeant- at- arms and a tower of strength in every rough-house that happened. " " And Twitchell, " interrupted someone at the speaker ' s right. " Yes, and Tuller, too. Of course our freshie football game was a disap- pointment then, for we only won by an accident, but now we forget our disappoint- ment as we remember what those same fellows did later for their University. Stow, Twitchell, Kerr why, that team was better than a dozen winning ones. " And then in our second term we built the Big C. Of course the sophs helped us, but we did most of the work. It rained all morning, but we forgot all about that, when we arrived at Hearst Hall and found the lunch that was ready for us we forgot all our troubles. Jim Burke was class prex then, looking almost as venerable and dignified as he does today. " Our sophomore year was surely a success, when George Bamett and Bill Duggin piloted us a little further on the road to graduation. We had a most remarkable burlesque, where we learned that all ' s well that ends in well, even the burlesque didn ' t come up to the Hop. The Hop had all other Hops, previous or following, backed off the map of the University grounds. You see this is explained by the fact that Paul Yost was running the affair, and Paul alway s has been a wonder in every way. " Here the speaker was interrupted by cheers for the queener of the class.) " Our Sophomore smoker was as lively as could be expected, and we still can recall a little advice of Prof. Setchell ' s on that occassion. And then there was the Blue and Gold election. Here as everywhere else 1 908 carried off the palm of superiority, and we held the most exciting and the closest class election ever seen on the campus. " But I suppose that those early years were only a preparation for the Junior year, when we blossomed forth in all our glory. It was natural that we should choose to lead us the handsome P. K., who had done so much for our Hop. You all know how our Junior Day eclipsed any that the university remembered and it ' s an old story how the audience listened eagerly from the opening of P. K. ' s speech till the -closing lines of that wonderful farce. And then the Prom in the evening the production of little Gus Meckfessel and the crowning glory of the whole day. Surely our Junior Day was up to the naught-eight standard. " The second term of that year it was up to us to choose a lady as president and we easily reached the choice of Miss Marguerite Daniels. An informal dance of this term is one of my most enjoyable memories of the class. The smoker a little later was all that could be desired, and then the Junior banquet it was our first banquet and was most auspicious. And somewhere about that time (the exact date is rather hazy) the Blue and Gold came out. " Meanwhile our men were winning glory for their Alma Mater on the grid- iron, the track and the diamond. On the first Rugby football team we had more representatives than any other class in college. Tuller, Stow, Budleman, Butler, Twitchell surely these were worthy champions ! On the track we had fighting for us such men as Yost, de Mamiel, Balzari and Ostrander, while the interclass baseball championship easily fell to the men of 1908. " In dramatics we were hard to equal for what other class can boast of such records as those of Sam Hume, Dave Levy and Carl Whitmore ? In journalism we made a name for ourselves for originality and enterprise for do we not number among us Tarn McArthur and Eddie Loeb ? Our debaters held up the honor of the class loyally, and by the end of our junior year four 1908 men had made intercollegiate debating teams a record unequalled by any other class. " Of our senior year I need not speak for it was the best and most easily remembered. But I have said enough to show beyond question that of all classes that ever came to California, 1 908 was one of the wisest, the strongest and the best. " A Toast. READ AT JUNIOR BANQUET MARCH 8, 1907 BY SHELDON CHENEY ' 08. Here ' s to the naught-eight fellow Whose heart speaks warm through his words ; To the miner, the cow college farmer, To the man who loves flowers and birds, To the dig who studies till midnight, To the " queener " who never will pass, For they all have a place at our banquet, In a toast to the naught-eight class. And here ' s to the naught-eight co-eds, Our prettiest, sweetest and best, Whose eyes laugh back with our laughter, Whose hearts glow warm with our zest. To the girls who were women at entrance, But who will be girls till they die A toast! for we know they are loyal, A toast ! with our glasses held high. When our lives are lived to the waning, And we ' re ready for judgment above, Could we gather for one last banquet, And a toast to what most we love, Do you think we would lack for a moment A theme th at would bring us up, And stir in our souls an uplift Like the bead in the brimming cup? From the fellow who ' d been jabbing niggers Way out in the Philippines, To the man who stayed in Berkeley, A-teaching the kids in their teens, From the girl who had raised ten children To the primmest old maid in the mass, They would rise at that last great banquet For a final toast to " the Class. " For a final deep pledge to our class, boys O a fig would we care for fate ! In the same old way we would drink to our class, In a toast to old naught-eight. Class Officers.

OUR class has already made a record for itself in many ways. Our freshman football game and track meet were surely more than successful and during this our sophomore year we have furnished the university such athletes as Stanton, Cerf, Crossneld and Cowles. We are known far and wide as the noisiest class in college, for when Stanton and Cerf are near, how could quiet reign ? Our crop of politicians is especially promising, and we have found that it is a cold day when such wily ones as Fred Shingle and Bill Hayes are found napping. Altogether we are convinced with the usual sophomoric assurance that our class is about the only one in college.

By FARNHAM P. GRIFFITHS, C6. THE academic year 1905-1906 was in many respects eventful for the University of California. It marked the acquisition of the Bancroft Library, that great storehouse of historical material invaluable to the student of Pacific Coast history ; it witnessed an increased efficiency in the administrative work of the university and in the instructional opportunites in history, political science, and economics, made possible by the completion and occupation of California Hall ; it made provision for a healthier and in every way more wholesome type of college sport in the abolition of intercollegiate and the adoption of rugby football. In all these varied ways and in many others the university was steadily forging ahead. But just a few weeks before commencement, and without warning of any kind, there came a sudden and wholly unforseen setback. The university, despite a more or less general feeling to ths contrary, was sadly handicapped in its onward march by the earthquake and fire of April 1 8 and the succeeding days. The group of campus halls and buildingj it is true passed through the ordeal almost unscathed : California Hall stood as immDveable as ever, and according to the night watchman, acknowledged the visitation of an earthquake only by allowing one of its windows to open out on the hinges ; the other buildings too stood the strain surpassingly well ; in the library the books toppled from their shelves and in the chemistry building there was breakage of apparatus ; but if this were the complete inventory of our losses we might consider ourselves fortunate indeed. However it is not the pur- pose of this sketch to enter upon a discussion of this aspect of the great calamity ; these matters have been accorded ample treatment in the reports of the the President and Secretary of the Regents. The aim is to touch here rather upon another side of the story ; the side which is concerned with the way in which the faculty and the students and friends of the university met the situation and responded to the unexpected call upon their time and service. In some ways, this is the most interesting phase of the situation. The events of thai April and May while they brought us great distress in the loss of things material, somehow rendered us compensating joy in the splendid exhibition which they called forth of achievement in things of the spirit. Men and women were anxious, yes yearning, to play an active part in the great work that was laid upon the community. They took hold with a will. They joyfully sacrificed all else that they might share in the work of relief. It became, in a very real sense, the m st popular and absorbing college activity. It overshadowed everything else. Athletes and debaters and journalists all gave up their several tasks that they might have a part in the new activity. The cadets took the field for active service even those who had long been mustered out of the corps donned the long-discarded uni- forms, sought rifles and applied for admission to the ranks. In San Francisco first and afterward in Berkeley they responded gladly to the call for their assistance. Stiles Hall was made headquarters for college relief workers and there instructors and students entered upon a systematic plan for the reception and the relief of the San Francisco refugees as they arrived in Berkeley. There was no lack of the college spirit that is always in evidence in the closing days of the year; it simply found expression in new activities it flowed in channels hitherto unknown ; and I venture to say it flowed more abundantly and more enthusiastically than ever before. The students in their zeal to be of service sacri- ficed many things dear to the heart of every college man and women in some cases th? sacrifice was of necessity, in others voluntary, but it was always cheerful. The juniors were compelled to give up their Blue and Gold, completely edited and practically through the press -a work representing the best efforts of their third college year, and containing untold treasures in its record of their college life. Upon the Seniors however was visited the heavest affliction in the breaking up of that whole season of joy and gladness represented by commencement week. The closing period of that senior year, was changed from days of mirth and rejoicing to days of hard work. The men ' s banquet and the girls ' jinks were promptly given up. A modest senior assembly took the place of the senior ball. Even the extravaganza, carefully written, and with the parts so thoroughly rehearsed that it was practically ready for pr esentation on the stage of the Greek Theater was by vote of the class cheerfully " called off. " The few events remaining of senior week were carried through on a modest scale. The baccalaureate exercises were con- ducted entirely in keeping with the times. The class day pilgrimage though shorn of its gayer features carried with it a new dignity and really meant more to the class of 1906 than to any of its predecessors. The last university meeting, the meeting that is annually assigned to the seniors as peculiarly their own, was con- ducted in the Greek Theater ; and there the men and women, representative of the class spoke each as he was moved, and they were moved as never before. Finally there came commencement and the Seniors passed out of the university without having passed final examinations, it is true, but tried by a sterner test than that which is submitted in the class room the test of the sudden call to service. And after all the events of those days, both the things done and the things wisely left undone, represent nothing more nor less than the achievements of college spirit of the truer sort. College spirit in these days and at California con- sist not wholly in the outward things ; the college yell and the college song are but the outward expression of what is deeper and more real the spirit of unselfish service, of whole-hearted devotion to the university and whole-souled interest in her welfare. And so in the midst of our depression over the material losses of California in the April disaster, we find comfort in the noble expression of her higher life to which those days gave birth. Cadets in Active Service. By SAYRE MACNE1L, ' 08 OR thirty-three years the best attended course in the University curriculum has I " " more than quenched the undergraduate yearnings for military glory. Through various changes of tactics, uniforms and weapons the " assembly " has sounded regularly over the campus and only the longed-for rain has broken the monotony of successive drill days. For a full generation there has followed in sure succession a weary round of company drill, battalion review, regimental review, inspections, escorts and guard mount, ith no more exciting interruption than the annual Gov- ernment Inspection. It was small wonder that the practice of " knocking the military " grew popular, and even upper classmen who did voluntary service as officers hardly dared say a good word in its favor. After all it took the biggest earthquake and fire on record to literally shake the military department into the prominence it has deserved, and to prove that the money annually expended by the national government on its maintenance has been by no means wasted. By a strange coincidence the earthquake occurred on the morning of the Annual Inspection. Until noon the maneuvers continued under the shadows of the great smoke-clouds which were were constantly growing in the west ; while the roar of dynamite, added to the glare and smoke, made fitting background for the scene. As the cadets gathered around the armory after the noon hour a rumor spread that there would be an opportunity for volunteers to do service in the city. Even before this was confirmed there was an appreciable increase in the attendance of the companies, and upper classmen whose stripes were of an antiquated shade began to appear casually in the vicinity of the bleachers. The competitive drill was cut short and a large crowd waited at the station to watch the departure of the inspecting officers and of a number of the staff of the cadets who went to proffer the service of the cadet battalion to the San Francisco authorities. Transportation to and from San Francisco was slow and laborious, but the crowd in uniform did not dwindle; and when the glad news came that the cadets were to be taken to San Francisco, it soon spread in every direction. A general scurry soon made away with every canteen and flask in Berkeley and all the grocery stores did a rushing business in cheese, crackers and canned meats. Blankets of all colors and descriptions were also in evidence, for the commandant announced that the men would depend entirely upon themselves in every respect for maintenance in the burning city. Accompanying this announcement by Captain Nance was a grim reminder that service, not sight-seeing was the program and all bent on mere curiosity might better remain at home. When roll call came shortly after 8 o ' clock it was startling to note the increased attendance over that of regular drill days. Not one company in the regiment lacked its full quota and several of them had enlarged considerably. Close examination of the feature of many a private in the rear rank might have revealed an astonishing re- semblance to some senior or junior who had capered for joy at the completion of his " military " a few months before. But there was neither time nor inclination for that. Serious work was at hand. For the first time in the recollection of any undergrad- uate the black cartridge boxes wers supplied with ammunition and the long line of squads made its way to the Key Route station. That the commandant ' s stern words " You are no more students but soldiers " had been taken well to heart was impressively shown by the trip across the bay. A martial spirit and a grave earnestness in striking com- parison with what would have been were the oc- casion one of the ordi- nary student excursions, was everywhere in evi- dence. Among all the awful spectacles the men who filled the cadet ranks that night may ever witness, that which lay before them as they left the Ferry Building will live longest in their memories. The familiar blocks with narrow streets cutting them in every direction, the clang and rattle of street cars, the hurry of traffic had been displaced by a scene of confusion and desolation unequalled in history. Awe stricken silence pervaded the ranks on the roundabout march along the water front and over the hills from which successive views of the terrible conflagration were obtained. The three battalions were stationed along Devisadero street. As yet this district seemed to be in no danger from fire, but the general confusion due to the fleeing refugees and the number of homes which lay absolutely unprotected furnished plenty of work from the start. Midnight had passed when the first battalion reached its post on Golden Gate avenue. A guard was posted at once and a patrol sent out. The remaining mem- bers of the battalion spread their blankets on a vacant lot and such as could turn their attention from the mass of flame and smoke below them, and who were not annoyed by the clouds of falling soot and ashes managed to gam a few hours sleep. But four hours " on " and four hours " off " does not leave much time for gazing even at the most remarkable of sights ; and before their eyes seemed fairly closed they were out again on duty. The rapidity with which the commanding officers completed the details of organization was little short of amazing. Six hundred men in dress uniforms, with no tents, few blankets, and great scarcity of food and water were not very promising material with which to work. In face of these obstacles the officers set to work and inside of a few hours the battalion headquarters were in full running order, the com- missary was turning out a steady stream of " grub " while the different companies had been assigned to their duties with a minimum of friction and disorder. To regulate the reckless and panicky lines of traffic alcng the main streets, to put out the fires in the shattered chimneys which numbers of excited families persisted in lighting, and to prevent the sale of liquors, were duties to keep the cadets busy during the day. The matter of controlling saloons afforded special difficulty. Num- berless small groceries had bars in the rear which carried on trade on the quiet, and made considerable trouble when they were broken up. It was in closing one of these that the Cadet Corps suffered its only casualty. While Corporal I. P. Aten, ' 08, of the 1 st Battalion was off duty he walked down toward the fire line. A riot arose in a saloon and he entered it just as a volley was fired into the crowd from another direction. He was struck by a bullet in the hip and only recovered after a long and painful siege at the Presidio Hospital. While the first day-light patrols were still on duty the commissary department had begun its equally important work. Automobiles and wagons were impressed into service. Requisitions were made on all the neighboring groceries. By noon creditable, though somewhat dry rations, were served up in military caps in lieu of any better plates. By evening the kitchen in the headquarters and the brick ovens in the street were running at full blast; and with the aid of a tin cup and plate per man the dinner was more than satisfactory. Indeed it is probable that the various house- managers in Berkeley this year were chosen on account of their prowess in the com- missary. The companies fell in without arms, shouldered plates and presented cups at the seething cauldron of broth. Then the line passed the first kitchen window where a generous supply of beans and sandwiches was dropped on each plate. As these were consumed, successive windows refilled them with stew and canned fruit, while the procession wound up at the coffee pot where the cups did veteran service for the third time and the sugar barrel and canned " cow " paid the last honors. In the afternoon a fresh detachment from Berkeley brought news of the events there and somewhat dubious tales of the " flood of criminal refugees " , " riotous China- men " and other evil doers which it was feared would force the cadets home again. Duty on the second night was even more difficult, for the orders were absolute that no lights whatever should be lit and numberless attempts were made to evade the rule. The guards accordingly spent most of their time on duty in beating at doors, climbing stairs and ordering out lights in spite of the long winded protests, ex- cuses and expostulations which greeted them everywhere. Throughout, the cadets enforced their orders thoroughly, but with a degree of consideration for the inhabit- ants which won their support and hearty cooperation. The people did all in their power to assist the cadets in enforcing the regulations, and many a welcome " bit and sup " was gratefully received from their brick ovens and none too well filled larders. The only particular event of the second night fit to mention was the valorous exploit of Co. A, which led by its gallant lieutenant captured, tried, condemned and on the first volley executed a ferocious young poodle accused of breaking the peace. Friday, the third day of disaster, was a bad day for everybody. Shoes had become worn and uncomfortable, soot had made uniforms a fitting shade for the chimney-sweep brigade and water in sufficient quantity to wash one ' s hands was a luxury. The fire had reached a critical point and the crowds of flying refugees grew thicker. As all horses and automobiles had been confiscated their ingenuity was taxed to the utmost for baggage conveyances. Arm chairs piled high with clothing and bric-a-brac made excellent carry-alls, while roller skates attached to the bottom of trunks were a grand success as amateur drays. By this time the inhabitants had built brick ovens in the streets and the culinary affairs promised to proceed much as usual. In the afternocn, however, a heavy gale arose and the danger from flying sparks was too great to be risked. All the fires were hastily extinguished and most of the families were supperless for the evening. The cutting wind made the vacant lot a rather chilly camping place for the cadets, but the neighbors generously opened their cellars and the men off duty, by arranging themselves in sardine order, managed to keep warm. Such crowded quar- ters furnished -an invaluable opportunity for the chronic jokesters ' sore feet, giddiness from lack of sleep and famine had failed to quell them. It was impossible for their audience to escape, and their volleys of wit were tossed back and forth amid roars of applause from the wakeful and torrents of abuse for the drowsy. For even in such strenuous surroundings there was plenty of targets for the wit. The quality of the gift cigars showered upon them by admiring grocers, (cigars which one gladly traded by the handful for one turn at the Durham sack), the tooth-brushes which when not in use waved gaily as plumes in the caps of certain aristocratic privates, the escapades of the prisoners obliged to chop wood all these served as a whetstone for the humorously inclined. By sunrise on Saturday the fire was under control and the encampment was beginning to feel well pleased with itself and with the rest of the world. Some enterprising soul discovered a dry- goods store in the neighborhood and the luxury of a change of clothing was ex- perienced. Note-paper and pen- cils were busy in all corners and they all made themselves at home, expecting a week more of service. A call for volunteers to return for duty at Berkeley met with chilly response. The cadets were quite satisfied to remain where they were. Shortly after noon, however, the orders to break up camp showed only too truly that the work in the city was over. The long line of companies wound down Golden Gate Avenue to Market Street and before evening the cadets were once more at home. The service in Berkeley until final dismissal needs hardly a word. Guarding the sanitary camps was a necessary but uneventful duty, and aside from the length of the hours differed little from the usual guard mount at the armory. The residents of the San Francisco district in which the cadets had been sta- tioned showed their appreciation by petitioning for their return. The military author- ities expressed full satisfaction at their conduct. Coming from the State University it was well that they were among the very first to bring aid in the disaster, and as a military training department maintained by the government that they could prove that their instruction had not been thrown away. It is generally conceded that the former friction between the student body and military department has been left with the other ashes in San Francisco. Seniors and freshmen alike obeyed implicitly the orders of the officers, while the able man- agement of affairs by the Commandant and his staff could not fail to win respect and admiration. As for the advancement of good feeling, an esprit de corps among the whole student body, the results have been incalculable. As long as there is a lack of dor- mitories it will take such events as a fire in the hills, a summer school camp, or ser- vice in the field to really draw the students together. Eating from the same plate, rolling up in the same blanket, patrol at some lonely or dangerous post, have drawn the students together in a way unknown before. The university, both directly and indirectly, has suffered much in the great dis- aster ; but on the other hand such experience is not to be measured by financial standards. The students went through a crisis which marks the boundary of two epochs " Before and After the Earthquake. " Since it had to come there is not a man in the university but who, looking back at those days of real service, says : " I am glad I was there ! " San Francisco, May 4, 1906. To BENJAMIN IDE WHEELER, President of the University of California. Dear Sir : We, the undersigned, residents of that section of San Francisco controlled by the University of California cadets, desire, through you, to thank the students who gave their valuable services for the protection of San Francisco. They were ever ready to help the needy, and we positively feel that by their innumerable acts of kindness and never failing courage the loss of life was greatly lessened. SIGNED BY 200 CITIZENS OF SAN FRANCISCO. THE AMERICAN NATIONAL RED CROSS WASHINGTON. D. C. Room 341, War Department President, Hon. WILLIAM. H. TAFT. Secretary, CHARLES L. MAGEE. Chairman Central Committee, Brigadier-General ROBT. M. O ' REILLY. Surgeon-General, U. S. Army. October 25. 1906. To the Faculty, University of California, Berkeley, California. Gentlemen : At a recent meeting of the Executive Committee of the American National Red Cross a resolu- tion was passed directing the Secretary to express to the University of California the deep appreciation and sincere thanks of the Committee for the valuable aid rendered by the faculty and students of the University in the relief work at San Francisco and vicinity. Respectfully, CHARLES L. MAGEE, Secretary. Commencement Week. IN place of the usual festive and formal close of the college year, the class of 1 906 ended its undergraduate career at a period of the greatest confusion. All the accustomed ceremonies were gone through, but the shadow of the San Fran- cisco disaster had not yet lifted ; and the class of 1 906 will go down in college annals as " the class that was shaken out of college. " Most of the three lower classes and many of the seniors themselves had already left the vicinity. The bright- ness of the Class Day receptions in Club House or Fraternity was lacking. Men whose minds had for four years been anticipating this particular date found new thoughts and experiences engrossing them. As Bishop Nichols expressed it in his Baccalaureate Sermon on May 1 3: " I think it may truly be said that we are all of us here as members of the Class of 1906, inasmuch as this year will ever be mem- orable because of the disaster that has come to San Francisco and the baptism of fire we have all endured. " The Baccalaureate Sermon was held in the Greek Theater on Sunday after- noon. The senior class attended in a body and the rest cf the seating-space was well filled by visitors. Bishop Nichols ' sermon emphasized the opportunity for men of character and worth to stamp their influence upon the work of reconstruction in the state. Class Day on the following day kept up all the traditions of former pilgrimages and in the quality of the speeches and in true college loyalty was the equal of any of its predecessors. On Tuesday Harmon Gymnasium was filled for the last time by a University Meeting which included the Class of 1 906. Such Seniors as P. N. Gray, R. H. Elliott, L. D. Bohnett, W. R. DeLeon, H. L. Stoddard, B. S. Norton, A. J. Coogan, 1. D. Wheeler, H. W. Beecher, F. P. Griffiths, and W. J. Cooper, all prominent in at least one activity, discussed particular phases of class or university life. In the afternoon came the final Symphony Concert of the series ; and in the evening Harmon Gymnasium was once more opened for the Senior Assembly. Commencement Day on Wednesday numbered 1906 among the University Alumni. On the following afternoon Madame Bemhardt ' s presentation of " Phedre " in the Greek Theater ended Commencement Week. Class Day. CLASS Day without an Extravaganza can still be a memorable occasion as was amply proven by the Class of 1 906. The gayer features of the day were for the most part wanting; but this only seemed to draw the class nearer together and the pilgrimage of farewell on Monday, May 1 4, will not be forgotten by any who attended it. At the Senior Oak, the gathering place, Class President W. J. Cooper made the opening address. Thence the long array of plugs and parasols wound through the campus and was addressed at the successive halting places by fellow classmen who had been asked to speak upon the subjects in which they had been most interested. The halting places and the respective speakers were: California Hall, P. N. Gray; Mechanics Building, H. V. S. Hubbard; Mining and Civil Engineering Building, W. W. Gilmore; Chemistry Building, W. A. Schmidt; Hearst Hall, Miss Lilian Williams; Agricultural Hall, R. M. Filcher; South Hall, Prof. H. M. Stephens; Library, Miss Phoebe Binney and North Hall, B. S. Norton. Commencement Day. THE culmination of Commencement Week came on Wednesday. The pro- cession of Regents, Faculty, Alumni and those who were to receive degrees filed from North Hall and the Library to the Greek Theater. After the Invocation the various colleges were represented by student speakers. P. N. Gray spoke for the College of Commerce on " Secondary Influences of College Life. " Alexander Adler, ' 02, B.S., College of Medicine, discussed " Some Aspects of a Physician ' s Training. " " Charity " was chosen by W. J. Cooper of the College of Letters. After him J. W. Scott for the Hastings College of the Law chose the theme " The Law School ' s Service to the Bar. " R. L. McWilliams, ' 04, B. L. for the College of Social Sciences, spoke on " The Reign of Law. " Governor Pardee then delivered the military commissions to the officers of the University Cadets. The University Medal was awarded to S. C. Browne of the College of Mining. President Wheeler then presented the diplomas to the graduating class. In the evening the new graduates were received by President and Mrs. Wheeler. The Summer Session By E. A. BRECKENFELD, ' 09. MENTION of the University ' s Summer Session is a new feature of the Blue and Gold, and yet it well deserves recognition. The Summer Session has been a feature of the university for six years and it has forced its way from a position of insignificance into line with the leading summer sessions in American universities. Summer instruction was first given in 1 89 1 ; and in the early years was linked very closely with the departments of physics and chemistry. High school instructors found these early sessions of great benefit to them in keeping pace with the develop- ment of the sciences. Also deficient undergraduate students saw an opportunity to complete insufficient work. As the years progressed, the sessions steadily became more popular. They shook off their spasmodic character and rooted themselves in the regular routine of the college year. In 1 899, the year in which President Wheeler arrived at the University, the summer session branched out. It added pedagogy, history and mathematics to its curriculum. One hundred and sixty-one students under five instructors were enrolled. In 1 900 President Wheeler conceived an entirely new idea that of inviting professors and savants from other institutions of learning to offer courses in the summer session. Five such men attended in 1 900. Their work was a marked success. The scheme was at once fixed, and so ever since 1900 the summer faculty has in- cluded from six to twenty men from other colleges. Under these new impulses the summer session bounded vigorously forward. In 1900 we find four hundred and thirty-three students, twenty-four instructors and courses in eleven different departments; by 1904, nine hundred and thirteen students, seventy-one instructors and twenty-five departments represented, while in last year ' s session are recorded over one thousand students, seventy-eight instructors and thirty- two departments. At the same time these sessions have been improving in quality. In the early nineties, they were merely a sanitarium for deficient undergraduates; later in the nineties the arrival of high school instructors raised the standard of the student body. Then, in 1 900, classical subjects were introduced into the curriculum and at the same time the practice of having visiting talent in the faculty was inaugurated. These two developed and expanded together. Courses began to be offered for university graduates and research work was begun. New ideas, facts never before revealed by the learned world, began to be set forth. In short, the summer session be- came a center of learning for the Pacific Coast. Albert Augustus Stanley, Professor of Music in the University of Michigan, himself a member of the summer faculty in 1 904, writes in the same year concerning the summer session : " May I venture a prophecy ? The University of California will be the center of all forms of culture at no distant time. The whole atmosphere is full of inspiration to do, and ultimately the circle of the arts and sciences will not lack even the smallest segment. " As we have already seen, the 1906 session had the largest enrollment of both students and faculty in the history or the summer sessions. The student body was composed of a heterogeneous mass of teachers, doctors, lawyers, college folk, business men, trades people, matrons and housewives, and, in fact, representatives of nearly every calling in life. The distinctive tone of the body was a high seriousness and a spirit of work. Their work was not unmingled with recreation. Every week one could see Professor Magee at the head of a big pilgrimage to the Big C or else leading the more ambitious trampers up the dizzy path to Grizzly. Trips to Tamalpais and ex- cursions to other resorts about the bay were not uncommon. Every Thursday after- noon the Symphony Orchestra or the Minetti Quartet gave a concert in the Greek theater, and on these occasions the theater was crowded. The visiting faculty were more particularly entertained. The greater part of them stayed at the Faculty club, where some very stirring discussions were held, and some very warm friendships with our California men made. The people of both Berkeley and San Francisco also treated them most hospitably. Since 1 902 the University club has held an annual dinner in their honor, and since 1 904 the Uni- tarian club has given them a like annual dinner. These are only two of the many dinners and parties by which both clubs and individuals entertained the visiting faculty. Week end jaunts and excursions round the state gave the visitors a fair look at Cali- fornia. There were sixty-one California men in last summer ' s faculty. With their work and ability we are all familiar, but the seventeen visiting members are strange to us, and so it may be well to look at them for a moment. Professor Earnest Carroll Moore was Dean of the session. He is not yet an entire stranger, as it was only recently that he was called away from the Department cf Education here to take the position of Superintendent of Schools in Los Angeles. His work in the Department of Education acquainted him with the teachers through- out the state and with the faculty of the university. And this, together with his knowledge of educational methods, made Professor Moore admirably suited for the position of Dean. Professor George Burton Adams of Yale, was here, perhaps the greatest living authority on mediaeval history, and with him were Professor Raymond Dodge of Wesleyan University, in the Department of Psychology, and Professor Alcee For- tier from Tulane University, in the Department of Romance Languages. Professor Hugo De Vries from the University of Amsterdam, who has for sev- eral years attended the summer sessions, was here again, developing new ideas in the science of botany. Professor J. Fred Turner of the University of Wisconsin, the foremost authority on American history in the world, gave some very interesting courses in United States history. He was greatly enthused over the Bancroft Library. He passed through it diligently throughout the six weeks of the session, and then, as he closed the last book, he exclaimed : " Well, I ' ll have to come back here and write you a brand new book on just what I ' ve learned this summer. " Professor Earnest Rutherford of McGill University, was another of the world- famous men who was here last summer. Thus we see what a distinguished and scholarly collection of men composed the faculty of last summer. Is it any wonder, then, that a high seriousness should have pervaded the student body ? That the summer sessions are a great thing for the university is confirmed by all who write on the subject. In the first place they establish better relations with other institutions of learning. California is so peculiarly situated that it has little opportu- nity for personal intercourse with fellow-workers in other institutions. Hence there is great danger that both faculty and students be isolated to their intellectual detri- ment. Obviously, then, the calling of fellow-workers from afar to a summer faculty is beneficial. Scholars mingle with California professors in their own home, they see the university through friendships with her own men, and the University is thus drawn closer to other institutions. The Summer Session, moreover, stimulates an interchange of men among the various universities. It enables our university with better insight to call men to our faculty, and on the other hand enables scholars from other universities to mark the California men of highest worth. Results of this knowledge on both sides have already been signally realized. Witness Professor Gilman and Professor Stratton, for- merly of California, called to Johns Hopkins University; and see Professor Henry Morse Stephens, first here in the 1 902 Summer Session, and then immediately made a fixture. Again, the Summer Session is a good substitute on American soil for " student migra- tion " so common in European universities. This going about of under-graduates from university to university is rather discountenanced here in America despite the fact that it is in many ways a good policy. The Summer Session, however, accom- plishes practically the same end. The session, further, stimulates the introduction of new subjects and phases of subjects into the curriculum. Experiments are made during the summer, and when they prove successful, are made a part of the regular course. Thus, three years ago, under Professor Stanley, courses in music were attempted. Today we have Dr. Wolle and the Symphony Orchestra. Professor De Vnes introduced a new side of botany in his lectures this new side is now in the botany curriculum. Again, the Summer Session gives stimulus to high schools, and, in fact, to the whole range of educational institutions in the state. More and more it is becoming the place of the University to be at the head of education in the state. It must direct, guide and spur on the state ' s teachers. Experience has shown that the best and surest way to accomplish these ends is through personal contact with the teachers. As the summer is the only time to get these teachers at their leisure, the summer session is admirably suited in every way for the purpose. Courses are offered " pri- marily for teachers, " the cleverest educational men are brought in contact with them, and, in fact, everything possible is done to make the session profitable for teachers. Finally, the summer session is self-supporting. Of all the university ' s sessions, this one alone is no drain on the university ' s wealth. Sometimes it even goes further, and is a source of wealth for the University purse. This is the Summer Session. Surely it merits our attention and the passing word of recognition given here. Dedication of Senior Hall. ANEW and distinctive feature was added to undergraduate life in the Univer- sity on the evening of September 1 8, 1 906, when Senior Hall, the quaint clubhouse of the Golden Bear Society, built for the sole use of the senior class, was dedicated. The " little log house on Strawberry Creek " was filled to overflowing with the men of 1907 on that evening, while goodf ellowship and col- lege spirit reigned supreme. The formal opening of the Hall was very simple. President Wheeler spoke the significant words which gave to the present senior class the custody of the building for one year. In opening the dedicatory exercises he made a short address on the essentials of senior control, the subject which was then so vital a one to the University. He counseled the seniors to be loyal to themselves and to the entire college. President E. V. Daveler of the senior class spoke briefly in reply, giving a short history of the building of the Hall and of its purposes. Senior Hall is the result of the need which has been felt for many years and which has constantly grown in intensity, for a center for undergraduate life in the University. Since it was found impossible to provide a general clubhouse for all the men in college, this project of a hall for the senior class became the most logical one. The idea first found expression at a banquet of the Golden Bear Society in San Francisco, three years ago. Professor Charles Mills Gayley is given the credit for the original suggestion, while Professor Henry Morse Stephens has aided the project in many ways. Committees were appointed by the society and the work of obtain- ing funds for the building was immediately begun. Students, alumni and faculty men rallied to the aid of the project and it was but a short time until Senior Hall be- came a reality and a far-reaching step had been taken in the direction of bringing together the interests of the students. When the class of 1907 became the custodians of the new hall, they immedi- ately began the preparation of a series of by-laws and house rules for its government, thus wisely forestalling the possibility of an abuse of its privileges. The building has been supplied with rustic furniture in harmony with the materials of the hall itself. Each year the senior class as it graduates will leave a window of stained glass bear- ing the numerals of its year, a beautiful and lasting memento of its brief but pleasant stay within the sacred precincts of Senior Hall. DURING five years the football rallies had evolved from informal gatherings expressive of student enthusiasm to highly complex and artificial spectacles for the benefit of visitors from San Francisco and Oakland. As spectacles, they were most successful, thousands of spectators filling all the seats above the diazoma until the circle of rooters around the fire dwindled in comparison. The temptation foY speakers to address the larger section of the audiences, coupled with the idea that the students constituted part of a show of some sort, did much to mis- direct the true aim of the gatherings. Then the senior class of 1 906 undertook to set an example to the University of what a real rally should be, and the gigantic pile of wood on the old football field and the college spirit that was displayed at this rally attested that the departure from the Greek Theater vaudeville shows would be popular. The present Rally Committee wisely determined to follow the new spirit that had c risen, and to confine rallies to their proper sphere, that of arousing and strengthening enthusiasm among the supporters of the University teams. Few in number, but mighty in spirit were the rallies of the football season of 1 906. The opening Bon Fire Rally was held on the evening of August 24, and on this occasion the entering freshman class was welcomed to the University. Colonel Edwards, Coach Taylor, Walter Christie, Bert Campbell and Phil Carey told the men of 1910 what part they were expected to play in University life. Once again, on October 2, the freshmen were the recipients of much whole- some advice at the big Freshman Rally, held in Harmon Gym. Coach Taylor, Dr. Adler, ' 02, and Walter Christie evolved the wonted enthusiasm, and the next day thv California rooters outnumbered and outyelled Stanford on her own field. The Axe Rally was held on the old football field on October 29. Walter de Leon, ' 06, spoke briefly on the value of yelling, and led a few just to show that he was still in practice. Prof. Henry Morse Stephens traced the historical side of Rugby, and laid down the broad principle that we were large enough and inde- pendent enough to take and develop a game of our own, suited to our own par- ticular needs. Everett J. Brown, ' 00, told of the securing of the axe, and at the close of the speeches King Sweesy, ' 07, outgoing custodian, appointed R. V. Jordan, ' 08, to act during the following year. Bad weather robbed the Pajamarino Rally of most of its color and excite- ment, but at the Smoker Rally, on November 8, the men of the University had an opportunity of producing the greatest outburst of enthusiasm ever witnessed by undergraduates. Men who had worked night and day on California Field came to Harmon Gym to cheer for the men who were to represent the Blue and Gold in the rapidly approaching contest. There was no trace of anxiety or listlessness ; nobody had to be worked up to the proper degree of enthusiasm; they were there already. When the team entered and when they went out, when the yell leaders led the applause and when they tried to stop it, the spirit was equally intense. When John R. Glascock, ' 65, without whose presence no smoker could be a complete success said that he felt there was no longer any need for him to preach college spirit, every man who heard him felt that it was true and that the enthusiasm there aroused should not be allowed to grow less. President Wheeler, Coach Taylor, Waller Christie, Captain Haffey, P. M. Carey, ' 04, Judge Waste, ' 91, P. N. Gray, ' 06 and R. P. Merritt, ' 07, voiced sentiments that all felt that with this year, with a new game before us, we had developed a spirit which, win or lose now, would some day carry all before it. After the speeches the crowd poured THE AXE RALLY. out upon the old football field. The big C on Charter Hill shone out from the darkness, illumined by hundreds of incandescent lights. Around the bonfire, from which rose sky-rockets and Roman candles, the lines of the serpentine wound to and fro until even the strongest gasped for breath. Let the smoker of 1906 serve cs a model " nor seek further, for better can ' t be found. " When the defeated California team left the field on November 10, left it with an ovation such as is seldom accorded the victor and the rooters assembled at the base of the flagstaff. With uncovered heads they lowered the University Ban- ner and escorted it to the Armory. The President of the Associated Students spoke briefly. He voiced the sentiment of all that our efforts had not been in vain, that in later times the day would not be bitter to look back upon. One thousand voices united in singing the " Golden Bear, " and the Rallies of 1 906 were ended. SKULL " KEYS RUNNING DRESS-SUIT coats and long red stockings, policemen, zebras, Indians and clowns; in such disguises various figures well known on the campus disported themselves in the Sixteenth Annual Running of the Skull and Keys society. On the morning of Friday, October 26, all co-eds entering the campus from Center street were surprised by escorts m dress-suits, duck trousers and variegated stockings who carried their books, dusted their shoes and accompanied them up the path. Later under the guidance of the active members the Neophytes entertained a large crowd on the bleachers with a varied assortment of limericks and other mirthful verse. Noon scattered them about the different sorority houses where they served as waiters with what success the outside world can only guess. In the afternoon every seat on the bleachers was taken and the crowd surged out along the old foot-ball field. The old chorus of " Who ! Who ! Who are we ! Loyal Skull and Key ! " was heard in the distance and was followed by the entrance of a coach filled with a motley-colored crew which could rival any circus bill. For an hour the crowd was enlivened with songs, pcetry or personal joshes. German Butter-Balls, Uncle Hiram in Breezes from the Farm, Battle Axe - Carrie, Bill the Dog-Man, Echoes from the Nursery, are picked at random from the pro- gram. Then the red- draped coach was again boarded and the public part of the initiation ended. The only other public appearance of the society occurs in the spring term when a play is produced by it, generally at one of the Oakland theaters. The cast of the play is taken entirely from the membership of the society, and some very remarkable female impersonations result. No play was given in the spring of 1906, this being one of the many results of the earthquake. This year " The Man from Mexico " was produced on the evening of March 27, and proved highly amusing to the audience of the society ' s friends invited for the occasion. The neophytes of this year were : C. V. Craig, J. D. Fletcher, R. N. Foster, J. R. Gabbert, S. L. Hamm, A. K. P. Harmon, Jr., R. V. Jordan, J. P. Langhorne, Jr., Gus Meckfessel, R. P. Merrirt, J. E. Ostrander, W. B. Pendleton, W. J. Rad- ford, E. K. Rogers, Alfred Salisbury, J. W. Spieker, P. W. Stafford, E. W. Stow, R. G. Walker, P. K. Yost. Work on California Field. THE bleacher rally on the Monday before the big game took place on a field closely bordering upon chaos. The widening of the field necessitated by the change of game meant regrading and the moving of the entire eastern bleachers. Labor troubles and bad weather had thrown the contractor ' s plans into hopeless confusion and even a casual observer might see that at the present rate the field could never be completed on time. President Merritt outlined the situation to the rooters. Stanford would have the game on the day appointed or not at all " even if Grizzly Peak stood in the middle of California Field " as Coach Lanagan put it. The contractors unassisted could not possibly do the work. It was up to the student body to put it through. To some who believe that the big intercollegiate games are only mild forms of hysterics on the part of the students, the answer to the call for workers would have come as somewhat of a shock. Promptly at seven-thirty on Tuesday some two- hundred figures in corduroys and overalls seized shovels and picks and began at the grading. Sly grins and winks passed among the regular working gang and bets were freely offered that the students would tire of real work before the day was out. Noon time, however, proved that the line of teamsters and scrapers would have small time to loaf if they were to keep even with the line of student picks and shovellers. Senior engineers superintended the various groups, and in spite of blisters on some hands unused to the strenuous life, the mounds and heaps began to approach the level. From noon of the first day the numbers grew steadily. From two hundred on Tuesday, it reached a full thousand by Friday. The Faculty met this outburst of college spirit with a corresponding treat- ment. From snap courses in Cow or Oriental down even to Military, all men students were excused. A visitor in any of the classes would have judged that he was visiting a female seminary. The ever present pessimist shook his head and swore such energy could not last. A hard day ' s work for men unused to it means stiff joints and sore hands the next day. Indeed there were a few groans at the beginning of work each day but not a man fell away from the work before him. It seemed as though every student felt the responsibility of the Big Game upon his shoulders. Only the team could get out upon the field on Saturday and do their best for their University, but to give them a field upon which to play, to turn the pre- dicted " I told you so ! " of Stanford, into a gasp of surprise, this was a duty that he could help to perform. A union delegate would have puzzled long as to the regulations concerning hours. The College of Electrical Engineering put theory into practice with marked success by lighting the field for night work. Time was growing short and the sun would insist upon going down some time before his rays could be spared. It was the unanimous opinion, however, that such lack of spirit upon his part could not be allowed to interfere. The night shift if we can call it a shift when many of the day ' s workers appeared again stifled their yawns, and only worked harder than ever to keep awake and counteract the cold and wind. Talk of late hours and midnight oil ! With the Big C illuminated and showing out from the blackness for miles, with the calls of the Sophomore sentries guarding it, with a glare of arc lights on California Field, mingled with clatter of picks and shovels one might well ask " Do these students ever rest ? " Certainly they did not rest until their work was done. All Saturday morning unlil within an hour of the time when the umpire ' s whistle blew, the silent crowd was putting the final touches on the field. When the last of the bleachers was set in place, the last clod broken, the last level reached, amid the admiring congratulations of the contractors and the workmen, there went up an " Oski " such as California Field will seldom hear again. California students had seen an almost hopeless task before them but not a man had hesitated to grapple with it. California Spirit the spirit of the whole University to overcome any obstacle before it -had achieved another triumph. MASS MEETINGS ANEW California tradition was inaugurated on September 27, 1906, when the first men ' s mass meeting was held in Harmon gymnasium, for the purpose of discussing with absolute frankness and sincerity the problems which confront the students of the University. President Merritt called upon " everyone who had something to say, to get up and say it, " and the fellows surely responded well to the call. General freedom of speech prevailed, such as has never before marked any of the big rallies, for the doors were shut to all except University men. Topics for discussion were opened by Harry Jenkins, ' 08, Erie Daveler, ' 07. Bob Vanel. ' 07. and Walter Christie, and a general discussion followed. Hal Bingham introduced his new song, which took at the start, and Sam Hume gave the fellows a new yell which is surely des- tined to become popular. At the close of the discussion President Wheeler appeared and expressed his approval of mass meetings and their purpose. With a mighty Oski which threat- ened lo burst old Harmon, the first men ' s mass meeting broke up. With the success of the first mass meeting in mind, President Merritt called another for February 14, 1907. Once again Harmon gymnasium was filled with men students. The topics for discussion were the honor system, the attitude of the daily newspapers of San Francisco and Oakland toward the University, dormitories, and the track situation. When Merritt called on the men to contribute to a fund for repairing the track, he met a substantial response. Almost the entire amount needed was obtained in five minutes. Altogether the second men ' s mass meeting was a worthy successor of the first and served to strengthen the appreciation of the new plan cf securing the genuine student opinion. The Push-Bail Contest. GOOD, even sport, enough variety to keep the bleachers awake, enough of the man-to-man pushing and scuffling to satisfy the rough-house element, com- bined with immunity from the exaggerations of yellow journalism in these you find the raison d ' etre of the Push-Ball Contest. The natural clash between freshman and sophomore must find some vent. Charter hill rushes, ballot-box raids, class meetings broken up, all testify to this innate desire for a test of personal strength. Several substitutes have been tried with varying degrees of success or failure. One trial is not enough to be decisive, but no one will deny that Walter Christie ' s push- ball scheme is the best tried so far. Three hundred men garbed in every form of indestructible raiment, half with arm bands of sophomore green, half with freshman red, tugged and shoved on California field through two twenty-minute halves. The huge leather ball six feet in diameter seemed to treat the whole performance with an air of bored indifference. The men tore, and groaned, and gasped with their exertions but the push ball moved only slightly into the territory of one class or the other, now resting upon the ground, now rising like a balloon above the heads of the contestants. Clever use of reserves who would throw in their combined weight and speed at critical points would give one side or the other a slight advantage. Now and then the ball would manage to roll out of the melee and there would follow a wild rush with plenty of exciting rolls and tumbles. Neither side, how- ever, made very dangerous inroads into its opponent ' s territory. A large part of the first half was played upon sophomore ground but in the second half they evened matters up. At the end of the forty minutes of play two teams of ten each continued the struggle. Captains F. Q. Stanton ' 09 and J. R. Fairbanks ' 1 had evidently made the best possible selections, for while the diminished numbers increased the speed of the play, neither side was able to score. Though the sides were throughout too evenly matched to arouse great interest among the spectators, still the novelty of the sport maintained a fair amount of interest and certainly afforded a legitimate vent for underclass rivalry. Charter Day. MARCH 23, the anniversary of the grant of the University charter, has always been our distinctive holiday, but the Charter Day of the present is different in many ways from that of the past. To an old grad Charter Day brings back recollections of a hard-fought battle between freshman and sophomore. For many a year it was the ambition of the freshmen to place their class numerals on Charter hill on the evening of March 22, to be disclosed on the morning of Charter Day to the admiring gaze of the University visitors. The sophomores tried to prevent this and a bitterly contested rush was usually the result, victory sometimes falling to one faction and sometimes to another. The rush between the two lower classes thus came to be a regular and duly expected part of Charter Day. But as time went on and California assumed more and more the proportions of a University, it began to be felt that the interclass rush did not accord with our more mature growth in other directions. However harmless these meetings might be, the University found focused on itself the attention of the whole state and gradually came to the conclusion that it was its duty to do nothing which might put it in a false light because of careless or hastily written press accounts. So from 1 900 to 1 905 we see the gradual decline of the Charter Day rush. But while the rush was still enumerated among the University traditions, and until it was officially discountenanced by the classes themselves, there would always be scattered attempts to revive the old custom. It remained for some two classes to set their faces resolutely against any form of the Charter Hill rush. This was finally done by the classes of 1907 and 1908, in their BURIED CHARTER DAY 1905 BY, THE CLASSES OF 1S 073cl OS, REQUIESCAT )N PACE sophomore and freshman years respectively. On March 23, 1905 they built by their united efforts the big cement C on Charter Hill, as a lasting memorial that they had done away with interdass rivalry for the greater good of their Alma Mater. On it was placed a brass tablet, bearing the inscription: " In memory of the Rush, buried Charter Day 1 905 by the classes of 1907 and 1908. Requiescat in pace. " Charter Day is now the occasion for the sophomores to entrust to the freshmen the care of the Big C for the following year. The occasion is an informal one, and is followed by a good-natured jolly-up of the two classes. On Charter Day 1907, the class of 1 909 through its President, A. R. Kilgore, transmitted to the class of 1910 its custody of the C. The sophomores had done their work well and had signalized their term of guardianship by the electrical illumination of the C before the Big game. To the class of 1 908 Charter Day will always be associated with this tradition of the big C, for it was that class that had the greatest share in expressing the sober and serious change of attitude in the student body with regard to interclass rushes. But there is another feature of Charter Day which is not to be overlooked and that is the address given annually on that occasion by some prominent educator. The speaker for 1907 was President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia University and his address was both scholarly and interesting. President Wheeler also gave a brief review of the financial condition of the University since the calamity of April 18, 1906. LONG before the students began to pay the regulation fee in support of the Infirmary, the Prytanean Society was making contributions to a fund for the establishing of such an institution. This contribution was obtained chiefly from the proceeds of the annual dramatic production given by the society. Among the most notable of these productions was the comic opera, " The Mikado, " and the comedy, " The Maneuvers of Jane. " With the establishment of the Infirmary this year the Prytaneans embarked upon an even more ambitious plan to increase their fund. This was the holding of a garden fete. The success of the fete held at Idora Park on Saturday, Novem- ber 3, made the Society ' s last contribution to the hospital fund the largest it had yet given. Despite the strenuous efforts of the weather to keep the pleasure-seekers away, the great pleasure grounds were filled with a merry throng all day. They " came with smiles, were served with smiles and went with smiles. " The booths, in charge of the members of the Society, represented various col- leges, and universities, and were accordingly decked out in their colors. The women students who assisted wore caps and gowns and the colors of the booth to which they belonged. The stock-in-trade was varied from home-made candy at the Vassar booth to football trophies at Stanford and California. In the afternoon there was a burlesque track-meet, which included many amusing stunts. In the evening there was dancing in the pavilion, where the music was furnished by the University Band. SUCCESS has again attended the annual celebration of Woman ' s Day and February 22, 1907, will go down as a red letter day to many an under- graduate. The various women ' s activities athletic, literary and dramatic, all clasped hands in harmony to typify the college girl. The morning was occupied with various athletic sports. A sharply con- tested tennis tournament, an exciting basketball game and a race between the interc!ass crews formed among the women students all served to show that man is fast losing his much-vaunted superiority over the weaker sex, even in college athletics. For the evening, " Ye Olden Tymes " held sway in Hearst hall, and colonial gown:, and powdered wigs, black patches and buckled shoe, swung the busy college world back into the charm and fascination of old. The colonial ball for 1907 was managed unusually well and no one was heard to complain because of the absence of the rather artificial and tiresome minuet of former years. Downstairs, as usual, the booths were the main features. Here the men students found their ready cash gradually ebbing away by some mysterious attrac- tion, and gained their only comfort in the fact that others had been " held up " just as unmercifully in the same place on February 22 of years gone by. Woman ' s day was also signalized by a women ' s edition of the Pelican, which was fully up to the standard set in former years. The following staff was in charge: Editor-in-chief, Rose Hizar, ' 07. Associates, Irma Weill, ' 07, Bess Markle, ' 07, Zoe Riley, ' 07, Jessie Bowers, ' 07, Hazel Lyons, ' 07, Ruby Manasse, ' 07, Marian Craig, ' 07, Ruth Salinger, ' 07, Edith Ostrander, ' 08, Lillian Morris, ' 08, Dorothy Doyle, ' 08, Maude Cleveland, ' 09, Rose Schmidt, ' 09, Rebecca Porter, ' 09, and Irma Bromley, ' 09. THE tradition of a junior smoker was ably maintained by the class of 1 908, when on the evening of February 1 5 the junior men, two hundred strong, gathered at Lorin Hall for their annual jollification meeting. Within the building all was good-fellowship and good cheer, while without there resounded the songs and yells of California, awakening the echoes of sleepy old South Berke- ley. It might also be not unworthy of mention that good spirits were an essential feature of the occasion. The stunts, as is usual for such affairs, were of an entirely informal nature. Several of the best known college men and faculty members addressed the assem- bled throng, while some of the most skilled vaudeville entertainers among the under- graduates helped to make the evening a lively one. Boxing and other strenuous exercises were not lacking from the list of events which had been prepared to keep things moving. Among those who took part were but these are not mentioned here, for friends and parents may scan these pages with interest, and it would not be well to make personal mention on so delicate a subject. All through the evening there was a spirit of friendliness, of close relation, of unified allegiance which is to be found at none other of the University gatherings. Faculty and students, mingling in jovial good-fellowship, all the customary restraint lost for the time being, it was hail fellow well met, when 1 908 gathered for its junior smoker. The committee in charge was: J. E. Ostrander, chairman; R. A. Balzari, E. F. Smith, F. A. White, B. R. Bates, J. G. Newman, E. J. Best, H. H. Brown, H. W. Felton, P. M. Herriott, R. V. Jordan, W. K. Tuller, R. E. Sudden. dinixitrstto C MEN ' S mass meetings for the men, women ' s mass meetings for the women, the Academic Council for the Faculty, all these provide opportunities for each of the three great branches of the University to gather and discuss their peculiar problems. But to see the University as a whole, from faculty to freshmen one must take the hour from eleven to twelve every alternate Friday. All classes are suspended at this hour. The University pennant flies from the flagstaff and the President ' s announcement posted about the campus names the speakers of the day. Harmon Gymnasium is usually well filled. The President and the speakers upon the platform with the row of faculty members behind them, the floor-space filled with the compact masses of rooters and the senior women in cap and gown, with a liberal sprinkling of visitors running up to the galleries, all present a picture of the University to be found upon no other occasion. Since President Wheeler instituted the meetings it is safe to say that almost every citizen of note who has been in the neighborhood at the time has been invited to attend. All who can possibly do so accept, and probably no other building upon the coast has had such a large number of speakers of worth and weight as old Harmon Gymnasium. Professors, authors, clergymen, judges, scientists, lawyers, financiers, government officials of all branches have been well represented. Each speaks upon a topic of his own selection and the breadth and variety of the addresses needs no comment. Such names as Redding, Garfield, London, Moulton, Hodges Phelan and Steffens, names taken at random from the long list, recall University meetings of special interest and importance. Nor are the alumni of California by any means neglected. Reminiscences of the University from the class of ' 65 to the present descriptions of the notable work of various graduates, and discussions of present day problems are of vital importance to every student or graduate. Aside from the speeches, the rooters are given a chance to practice, the band fills up the intervals, and on former occasions the old Glee Club was always greeted with enthusiasm. The meetings are always elastic enough to meet the particular phase of University activity then current. The meeting before a big game or a field-meet involuntarily becomes somewhat of a rally. At the dedication of California Hall the presence of the Chinese Imperial Commission added much to the occasion and suggested alike the growth of the Greater University, and its vital connections with the great Oriental problems with which every coast bordering on the Pacific will some day have to deal. On Washington ' s Birthday the place of meeting is transferred to the Greek Theater. At the recommendation of the Mohonk Confer- ence the universities of the country discuss on this occasion the growth of Inter- national arbitration and this theme is always chosen for the University Meeting of that date. Just before the senior examinations, a meeting is devoted to student speakers. A number of seniors each actively connected with some important phase of undergraduate life, discuss their favorite activities, and point out the path to future progress in them. Eleven student speakers last year, including the outgoing President of the Associated Students, and his successor, the senior class president and repre- sentatives of journalism, athletics and debating, successfully summarize the progress of the year in their respective branches. Standing as they do in a place by themselves, and filling a need which no other institution seems able to touch, the University meetings have long since ceased to be an experiment, and play a role in student and faculty life and relations which is con- stantly growing in importance. The University has the opportunity to see and hear the views of authorities from many different places and on a great variety of subjects. They in turn are enabled to see. the whole University, as it were, at home ; to mark our attitude toward current affairs and our discussions of our own problems. Students from different colleges who meet outside only too infrequently are brought close together for an hour at least and are reminded of and impressed with the ever-growing sentiment of University unity. The Department of Music. By PROFESSOR J. F. WOLLE. THE DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC of the University of California has been in operation for nearly one year and a half, embracing in its activities the symphony orchestra, the student chorus and classes in harmony and counterpoint. The Blue and Gold asks my opinion of the influence on the public of this newly established chair, which in the organization of a symphony orchestra is unique in the annals of State institutions in this country. Concerning the effect of the or- chestra on the public, I have no opinion to express, for it will have been observed that the conductor invariably stands with his back to the audience. Owing to this fact, also, I have never seen the ten thousand auditors in the Greek Theater on concert days, alleged to have been there by over-enthusiastic music lovers, individ- uals otherwise sane. Engrossed for the time being with the immediate duties of giving the cue to the effeminate flute and the virile drum, I see nothing but a wildly gesticulating baton, invisible to the naked eye. But with all these limitations, a beginning has been made. The chorus was at last given the opportunity of celebrating the earthquake postponed, as it were, second coming of the " Messiah. " But splendid though it sounded, the results thus far achieved will pale into insignificance before the greater triumphs which lie before. There is much excellent vocal material in the University not yet identified with the University Chorus, which would well warrant the doubling of the mem- bership. The present members deserve high praise for their unflagging interest, regular attendance and efficient work. WHEN the University Orchestra was organized nearly two years ago and rendered the first series of symphony concerts in the Greek Theater it met a success beyond the fondest hopes of its promoters. A crowd such as had never gathered for a musical performance filled the theater at every concert. From the first the standard of music chosen was high but it was consistently maintained.. The people of the state as well as the student body showed instant and hearty appreciation of the music of the masters as it was performed by the orcheMia under the leadership of Professor J. F. Wolle. The musical season of the academic year 1906-7 has been one of unusual prominence. During the summer session of 1 906 the University gave three sym- phony concerts in the Greek Theater, one of the chief objects of which was to hold the University Orchestra together. Many of the players of last year had departed to distant places after the San Francisco calamity, but enough remained to form a large nucleus around which Professor Wolle soon gathered some fifty players. The three concerts given during the summer session enjoyed a noteworthy success. Three recitals of chamber music by the Minetti Quartette were also given in the Greek Theater. When the regular semester opened the University Orchestra was enlarged to 68 pieces, and six concerts were given during October, November and December. These concerts, while successful beyond anything ever given in the line of public symphony concerts in San Francisco during recent years, were not so great a finan- cial success as were the concerts of the previous year. Nor could this have been expected. Owing to the most unusual conditions in San Francisco these concerts have had to depend for their extra-University attendance solely upon the population of Oakland and Berkeley. Nevertheless the audience has never fallen below 2000, in itself and intrinsically a splendid attendance. A most promising feature of this attendance was the large number of season tickets sold to students of the University, over 800. This figure indicates in the most positive manner that the concerts are accomplishing their greatest purpose they are reaching the student body, the men and women in the making, whose musical standards of a life-time are being cultivated and fixed. The programs were all of high grade, illus- trating the various phases of classical and romantic composition. The orchestra displayed continual and most gratifying improvement, the natural musical capaci- ties of the various players having been noticeably improved in their ensemble as the result of regular and frequent rehearsals. Three recitals of chamber music by the Minetti Quartette were given during October, November and December. These were well attended, and were highly appreciated as a means of cultivation of the highest musical standards. The last of these concerts was given in Hearst Hall. FROM a Sunday afternoon incident to a University function of wide prominence and weekly anticipation within the college year; such has been the progress of the " Half Hour of Music. " Three years ago President Wheeler noticed that he never went to the Greek Theater on a pleasant Sunday afternoon without finding many people there enjoying its beauty and the charm of the surrounding woods and hills. Thinking that it would interest them greatly to learn its acoustic perfection he suggested that the Glee Club should be asked to come and sing a song or two some Sunday afternoon. From this beginning has grown the institution of the Half Hour of music which now brings from one to five thousand people to the Greek Theater every Sunday afternoon while the University is in session. For the first year the Music was given only by University musical organizations or individual students or alumni. One Sunday by request the program was compossed of numbers by John Carrington, the splendid baritone, Hother Wismer, the violinist, and Wallace Sabin, the organist and composer. So delightful was that occasion that outsiders have continued to be invited until the music is now primarily by professional musicians. Each of the University musical organizations however contribute the program for one or two of the Sundays during the year. All of the professional musicians give their services without remuneration, purely because they delight in that wonderful audience and wonderful auditorium. The list and description of the varieties of concerts rendered is too long to be given here. Suffice it to say that practically every kind of music is represented as a glance at President Wheeler ' s report shows. To the Half Hours all the world has been made welcome and it has responded heartily to the invitation. The University Chorus. IN MANY respects the most notable musical function of the year was the presen- tation of the Messiah given by the Student Chorus and the University Orches- tra. This oratorio had been practiced and rehearsed for presentation in April of last year. When the University opened in August, the rehearsals were resumed, and three months later the undertaking was brought to a successful public conclu- sion. This performance convinced all of three things: that a University chorus is capable of undertaking work of this high grade with every assurance of a successful outcome; that in Professor V olle the University possesses a man singularly adapted to the training and direction of a large chorus; and that a massive choral production brings out the highest qualities of the Greek Theater to a greater degree even than does the symphony concert or the dramatic production. The students who sang in ihe chcius deserve the greatest credit for their splendid work. Though they have contributed to a most successful University performance, and for this alone deserve the regard of their fellow students, they have done more because they have initiated what is to become a permanent function and tradition of great value to the student body and to our University life. At the same time the students in the chorus have themselves profited greatly, since through their participation in this work they have entered into music in the most direct sense, and have gained a personal apprecia- tion of a great art that they will carry with them throughout life. It is safe to say that after the marked success of the first University Chorus production, student in- terest in this organization will be greatly stimulated, and that we may in the future count also upon a large public interest in these performances.

R. Morse, ' 96 !5M$A-ref rfe The University Cadet Band. THE UNIVERSITY BAND is primarily a military organization, being pro- vided for and maintained solely by the Military Department of the Univer- sity. In the early days of the department the band fulfilled its requirements on the parade ground and participated in the various intercollegiate contests, as well as playing at the rallies held before such contests. As now-a-days, it invanably led the " serpentines " after all victorious meets, and added generally to the spirit of such occasions. The music was essentially martial in character and the drill periods were spent in mastering the marches and quicksteps to be used later, i he principal aims of the band were entirely at the leader ' s discretion, and no great amount of interest was taken in it by either the individual members or the student body. There was a formal tryout for admission, but owing to the scarcity of material few appli- cants were ever rejected, and it is regrettable that many an applicant considered the pleasure of being exempt from " carrying a gun " and the free admission to the games as the main inducement to membership. With the advent of the Greek Theater and the Sunday half-hour of music, however, there came a new opportunity for the band. The theater is an ideal bandstand, and requests from the Music and Dramatic Committee that the band participate in the programs furnished an inspiration for a new class of music ; a class more interesting individually than had been the music of the past. About this time, too, several proficient musicians were enrolled among its members, and competition for the solo positions became keen. To the League of the Cross Band of San Francisco much was due at this time, as the leading players of the University Band were prominent in that excellent organization, and were deriving much musical experience and ability of execution. The music handled by them included the standard operas and overtures, many of them very difficult. Among these more experienced men was S. F. Long, Jr., ' 07, who was promoted to the leadership of the band in 1905. With plenty of animation and a quite extensive experience Long soon aroused an interest among the college folk, which at once marked him as a leader and an enthusiast. The use of the extensive library of the League of the Cross Band was obtained and there was soon plenty of material for the per- formers on even the most unimportant instruments to become interested. In view of all this musical efficiency, one must not be led to think that the band was not fulfilling its duties to the Military Department. Every one knows the history of Captain Nance ' s coming ; how the standard has changed, and the dis- cipline improved. The band was not asleep to these improvements, but was soon drilling with a snap and vim that seemed to put life into the very freshmen. Such was the efficiency of the organization in all respects that President Wheeler pronounced it the finest cadet band in the United States. At the opening of the present year prospects were very poor, as only about half of the former membership returned. However, an influx of as many promising freshmen soon gave evidence of a more hopeful future. Indeed, the class of 1910 has furnished more good musicians than any since 1907. With the success of the previous year yet fresh in their memories, the old men were soon hard at work and the new were not long in getting the spirit. With the fall term was also instituted the plan of having the services of a professional coach, and after much effort and negotiation, Mr. Steindorff of the Tivoli Opera House Orchestra and Golden Gate Park Band was engaged. Coupled with a genial personality, Mr. Steindorff has an excellent power of command over his men, and enthuses an interest among them which is productive of the highest results. Regarding the future, the prospects for the band are very bright. This year has witnessed the foundation of a permanent library, and a large addition of standard music is planned for the present term. Regular evening rehearsals have been instituted, for which negotiations are now under way to gra nt the musicians university credit, such as is given the University Chorus. Another year will piobably record the inauguration of a new course in music or military science, as a result of the interest manifested by the band boys in this matter. At present the band is seriously hampered by the lack of a suitable room for meeting, and herein lies a duty for the leaders of the future. The standing of the organization is now such that all efforts toward the erection of a permanent structure for its use will be encouraged. MILITARY Offi icers. JOHN TORRENCE NANCE. Captain, U. S. A.

FROM the pamphlet of less than fifty pages of reading matter published by the class of 1875, the Blue and Gold by gradual improvement in the hands of the succeeding editors, has grown to a volume of nearly six hundred pages. At first the Blue and Gold was a mere chronicle of the events of the year and a register of the students and faculty, but the josh department soon became one of the leading features of the book. An examination of the early annuals yields an interesting contrast between the college life of to-day and that in the seventies. On opening the annuals of the seventies or eighties, one ' s eye is soon caught by the many cartoons of the college men of that day, in their high silk hats and tight uncreased trousers. In those days the University meetings were never disturbed by Varsity Glee clubs. In their place there were class glee clubs. Among the other musical organizations men- tioned are the Chi Phi double quartette and the Zeta Psi orchestra. To one interested in the evolution of class pictures and Junior plugs, the 1 889 Blue and Gold affords an entertaining field for research. Here will be found a photograph of the whole class taken under the oaks. The co-eds are there, and out of deference to them, the men have removed their head-gear and piled the plugs on the sides. Their plugs were not of the variegated kind seen on the campus to-day, but were merely decorated in front with their class numerals. They were also left high and show no signs of having been through a plug-kicking contest. Since the publication began there has been but one break, the exception occur- ring in the case of the 1907 book. All work had been completed on this annual and the college public was eagerly awaiting its arrival, when the earthquake of April I 8 upset all expectations. Not a single complete copy survived the fire, though many of the press proof sheets were saved by J. R. Gabbert, ' 07, the editor. These were bound together and given into the custody of Librarian Rowell, who guards the 1 907 Blue and Gold with assiduous care. By the San Francisco fire the work of getting out the present Blue and Gold was extremely handicapped. All the big presses were destroyed, the advertising was greatly decreased and the Mark Hopkins ' Institute of Art, upon which former editors relied for the art work, was burned to the ground and has not as yet re- opened. Besides these troubles, the Pelican has encroached upon the field covered by the Josh department by publishing personal joshes. In spite of these difficulties, the 1 908 Blue and Gold is nearly as large as its predecessors. As to quality, that most eager dissector, the College Public, must be the judge. DESPITE the fact that the great disaster of April, 1906, deprived them of their Blue and Gold, the members of the class of 1907 determined that they would have the pleasure of publishing a history of the class and what it has done in the University, and at the same time establish a new tradition, that of issuing a Senior Record. Accordingly the honor of editing the first volume of the Record was given to that member of the class who had seen his year ' s work go up in smoke in the San Francisco fire. J. R. Gabbert, editor of the 1907 Blue and Gold, was the man selected to get out the new publication, and R. E. Warner was made manager. A. C. Hastings, manager of 1907 Blue and Gold, turned over about $500, which had been saved from his ofhce, and after diligent efforts on the part of the staff, the new book was launched on its career. That the idea of a Senior Record is popular appears to be evident, and in all probability future classes will keep up the tradition.

From a weekly it has been changed to a monthly of much greater size and instead of a subscription list in the thirties it is now extremely well patronized for a college literary publication. By the amalga- mation of the Occident Publishing Company, the Dramatic Association and the old English Club into the greater English Club, the control of the Occident passed to a committee appointed by the president of this new organization. This increased interest shown by the college public is due to the innovations of the editors. Departments representing the various activities and edited by men prominent in each have been introduced, and photographs of well-known college men and of the new buildings on the campus have appeared as frontispieces.

The proximity to the wonderful work going on across the Bay has furnished the Journal with much first-hand information on structural engineering, and the editors, taking advantage of this, have increased the value of the technical descriptions with accurate halftone illustrations.

Jenkins, ' 08 INTERCOLLEGIATE I DEBATE L_ AMONG the many evil consequences of the earthquake and fire, not the least in importance was the loss of the opportunity to administer a defeat to Stanford in the annual intercollegiate debate, which was to have taken place April 21. The question, " Resolved, That the American game of football has done more harm than good to the ideal for which a university should stand, " was one of exceptional local interest, and promised to call forth an unusual amount of spirit and enthusiasm. The teams were composed of experts in the forensic art and the college public expected to be treated to an extraordinary display of orator- ical fireworks. Stanford had the affirmative of the question and was to be represented by D. D. Sales, a veteran of two Carnot teams and one intercollegiate ; W. F. Herron. an oratorical star and a future Carnot medalist, and W. L. Blair, an experienced debaler and convincing speaker. California entrusted her honor and reputation to Prentiss N. Gray ' 06, who though new at debating had shown himself a convinc- ing and powerful speaker; Maurice E. Harrison ' 08, an experienced debater and a member of the 1905 Carnot team, and Norman A. Eisner ' 07, the hero of last year ' s Carnot. Although the issue was never fought out, California retains the confidence that she had in her representatives. CAR NOT DEBATE THE CARNOT for 1907 was the snappiest and most closely contested one held for many a year. It resulted in a defeat for California, but a defeat of which we have no cause to feel ashamed. Although the medal was awarded to Herron of Stanford, our men clearly ranked as a team above their opponents. The debate was held February 1 , 1 907, in the Stanford Assembly Hall, and the question discussed was one of the most vital importance, whether the success of French socialism would make for or against international peace. This question was announced to the debaters two hours before the contest and they chose their sides individually, Peixotto and Harrison of California and Shelton and McColloch of Stanford taking the affirmative, and Macneil of California and Herron of Stanford the negative. Our three men were all juniors, yet they had all three made a record in university debating. Macneil was the winner of the last Bonnheim contest and had shown on that occasion a remarkable ease of delivery and considerable rhe- torical skill. He was also a member of his sophomore class team. Peixotto had also participated in the interclass debate, and moreover had displayed a remark- able familiarity with the general question for this year ' s Carnot. Harrison had already represented us in the Carnot of 1 905 and was a member of last year ' s intercollegiate team. With these records behind our contestants, we hoped to carry cff the medal as easily as we had done in years gone by. Herron had been s poken of before the debate as Stanford ' s most likely man, and in fact the debate soon developed into a contest between him on one side and the California speakers on the other. The debate was opened for the affirm- ative by Harrison. He showed, from the nature of socialism and its actual political programs, that its success would make for international peace, especially as it is a most determined foe to French militarism, in itself a constant menace to nternational peace. Shelton of Stanford followed with a smooth and pleasing argument for the same side. Macneil opened for the negative. He argued that there are " three great and or:ly " means of preserving international peace, namely; a large standing army, diplomacy and international economic relations. As socialism is opposed to all three, its success cannot make for peace. Macneil made the most of his pleasing style and graceful delivery. McColloch replied to Macneil ' s speech, but gave little positive argument. Peixotto followed with a careful and logically constructed economic argument showing that the destruction of competition would undoubtedly make for inter- national peace. So far California had everything her own way. But a single speaker remained who was to upset all our calculations. Herron ' s argument was a masterpiece. He had made marked progress since last year ' s Carnot, and was in fine trim. In a clear and forcible speech he outlined his argument to the effect that the introduction of socialism in France under the management of extremist leaders would inevitably bring about civil discord and foreign war. The rebuttal speeches which succeeded each other rapidly, were unusually lively and interesting. Macneil ' s ironical apology for considering facts and not fine-spun theories, Peixotto ' s unanswered challenge to the negative, the sharp clash between Herron and Harrison on questions of fact all these served to hold the attention of the audience to an unusual degree. It was undoubtedly the best Carnot heard during recent years. When the speaking was over the result was clear and we were ready to agree with the judges that the medal had been won by William Fraser Herron of Stanford University. But we did not come away without recalling that there are other Carnots to come and that they perhaps may tell a different tale. The question was: " Resolved, That the success of French Socialism (as defined in recent party programs) would make for international peace. " Affirmative: Maurice E. Harrison, ' 08 (California), William S. Shelton, ' 08 (Stanford), Claude C. McColloch, ' 08 (Stanford), Eustace M. Peixotto, ' 08 (California). Negative: Sayre Macneil, ' 08 (California), William F. Herron, ' 08 (Stanford). Committee of the Faculty: Professors Duniway and Alden of Stanford; Professors Gayley and Bacon of California. Presiding Officer: President David Starr Jordan of Stanford University. THE SENATE AFTER a spirited contest the permanent possession of the Keller cup was decided November 7, 1 906, in favor of the Students ' Cong ress. Accord- ing to the wishes of the donor this cup was to go to the society first winning three victories. The debate this year was the fourth of the series, and was bril- liantly successful, both as regards the standard of excellence of the speeches and the interest taken by the student body. The question though not of great local interest, was entered into with spirit by the speakers on both sides, and called forth an oratorical display unusual in these contests. The large and enthusiastic body of suppor ers and friends of the contesting societies, by their encouragement and ap- plause, brought out the best of which the speakers were capable and helped to make the debate a success. All present agreed that it was the best debate of its kind ever held, and its success has done much to establish the worth of these contests in the minds of the students. The affirmative of the question, " Resolved, That the centralized form of the French government is inimical to the stability of the republic, " was supported by F. A. White, ' 08, H. D. Hoover, ' 09, and J. Robinson, ' 08, representing the Senate. They argued that centralization in any government is incompatible with republican institutions, that the present government of France is especially so, and that it has proved itself unstable in practice. The negative was upheld by the Congress, with J. M. Burke, ' 08, C. H. Cunningham, ' 09, and N. A. Eisner, ' 07, as the team. They argued that centrali- zation secures unity of policy and that the history and character of the French people rendered it necessary to stable government in that country. The judges, Professors Price and Rieber and Mr. von Neumayer, after a pro- tracted deliberation, decided by a two to one vote that the victory belonged to the Congress debaters. The Congress had already won two out of the three preceding debates, and by this victory gained the Keller trophy as a permanent possession. THE ANNUAL Bonnheim contest was concluded on the evening of January 19 in Hearst Hall. According to the new rules a prize of $150 is given to the contestant writing the best thesis upon a question of an ethical nature, while the five most worthy essayists are allowed to compete for the discussion prize of $ 1 00 awarded to the one who gives the best oral discussion of some question taken from his own essay. The winner of the dissertation prize of $150 is not announced until after the discussion. The general subject this year was, " The Moral Limitations of International Arbitration, " and the five best essays were written by Julius Klein ' 07, C. J. Booth ' 08, S. E. Danforth ' 07, H. A. Stout ' 05, and Sayre Macneil ' 08. The particular thesis which each of these men was required to defend in the oral dis- cussion was as follows : Klein " The purely moral nature of the sanction of arbitration is not a fatal objection to the system. " Booth " On the frontiers of civilization there can be no arbitration. " Danforth " Arbitration is inadequate to the gravest international issues. " Stout " The state is merely a means to the ends of its citizens. " Macneil " The state is not an end in itself nor a means merely, but the state ahd its citizens are reciprocally ends and means. " Each speaker was allowed ten minutes to speak, and the contest was judged on general ability. After some deliberation the judges announced that the best discussion was given by Sayre Macneil and awarded him the prize of $ 1 00. It was then announced that the committee on dissertations had decided to divide the prize of $1 50 for the best written essay equally between Macneil and Stout. The judges were Professors Jones, Stephens, Slate and Mofnt and Messrs. Holman, Olney and Weinstock. President Wheeler was chairman of the evening. FRESHMAN SOPHOMORE DEBATE THE Freshman-Sophomore debate which was held in Hearst Hall on the evening of November 25, resulted in another victory for the Freshmen. This is the fifth consecutive victory which the first-year men have been able to wrest from the Sophomores, the class of 1 904 being the last to win an interclass debate in their second year. It begins to seem as if the Freshmen will succeed in establishing A precedent, impossible to break unless the Sophs get busy. If the best interests of debating are to be served this tradition must be broken. It is to be hoped that the class of 1910 will take this to heart and exert themselves to give the embryo tradition its death blow. The question was, " Resolved, That Cuba should be annexed to the United States. " The sophomores upheld the affirmative and their speakers, W. H. Pills- bury, A. R. Kilgore and H. D. Hoover, maintained that the moral and economic welfare of both Cuba and the United States would be best served by annexation. The freshmen were represented by H. A. Savage, Stuart O ' Melveny and H. R. Beigh, who stoutly asserted that both Cuba and the United States could get along better alone and that we are under moral obligation not to annex the island. The freshmen having established the better case, the judges, Professors Wells and Roberts and L. E. Martin, ' 02, decided to give the island republic another chance. But in the meantime Uncle Sam holds the island. California Stanford Debates.

This would be their real entrance into that long list of social events which relieve the busy minds of university students from the strain of study. For many years it has been President and Mrs. Wheeler ' s hospitable custom to welcome their new charges by entertaining them at Hearst Hall. This reception takes place during the third or fourth week in the first term of the college year. The reception to the class of 1910 proved, like all of which had preceded it, most delightful. Miss Cornelia Stratton, ' 07, R. P. Merritt, ' 07, J. R. Gabbert, ' 07, together with several other prominent seniors, assisted the President in receiving the baby class The Colonial Ball. AMID gayly decorated booths, quaint maids with powdered hair and dainty flowered bodices or perhaps great-grandmother ' s gowns, if one is so lucky as to possess such a treasures welcomed their guests with all the cordial hospitality of ye olden times. Yearly large crowds have come to seek a night ' s diversion, after the more strenuous sports of the day, and surely find it within the open doors of Hearst Hall. Upstairs youths and maidens forget the world in the whirling waltz, while downstairs the heart of man is gladdened with a cup of good cheer. Nothing could be more picturesque; nothing could be more successful; nor could there be more happy hearts than those who wearly trugded homeward in the w ee, small hours, after a truly happy evening.

It is doubtful whether, since the days of Hotel de Bourgogne, Racine ' s version of the Greek story of the passionate, curse- stricken queen ever received a more unique and notable presentation. Owing to the length of the play, and the limitation of time at her disposal, Mme. Bernhardt had decided to omit the fourth act of the piece, but once before the five thousand spectators who thronged the tiers of seats, and upon the classic stage, so eminently fitted to the play, this actress, to whom the world grants first place in the realm of tragic impersonation, was so carried away by the exceptional opportunities of the situation that she refused to omit one of Racine ' s splendid lines. The tragedy was given in toto, and Mme. Bernhardt fairly outdid herself in her consum- mate interpretation of the love, jealousy and hatred of the Queen of Athens. A conflict between the human individual in guilt and passion on the one hand, and immutable will and destiny on the other underlies the play, which Sarah Bernhardt brought before the aud- ience in all its mighty power. So perfect was her interpretation, so eloq- uent her action, that for many a complete under- standing of the language did not seem necessary to the immediate appreciation of its merits. Every phase of the love, jealousy and awful atonement was told in gestures, glance and inflection that enthralled like a spell. To those who understood French the classic lines rang beautifully clear, their stately swing enhancing the noble thoughts that they contain. The support was exceedingly good, especially M. de Max, who took the role of Hippolyte. He fitted well the character of the wild, untamed, yet chivalrous youth, and threw much dramatic vigor into the rendition of his lines. The merits of the cast, however, were entirely overshadowed by the preeminence of Mme. Bemhardt. Every gesture that she made, every line that she spoke, was marked by the utmost grace and fluency. At no time did she allow the rhymes of the couplets in which the play is written to become obtrusive. Her voice, save in moments of extreme passion, remained clear, distinct and telling. But the audience was most deeply impressed by the force of her personality that seemed to vivify every utter- ance and movement. Especially was this noticable in the scene where Phedre con- fesses her love for Hippolyte, and in those where remorse has overtaken her. At the close of the performance the audience summoned Mme. Bernhardt again and again before the curtain. Many showed their appreciation by escorting her carnage to Berkeley station for a final send-off. In speaking of the play Mme. Bemhardt said that she considered it by far the most interesting feature of her American tour. Not only the University, but also the public at large owe much to Professor W. D. Armes and the rest of the Musical and Dramatic committee of the University, who obtained in Phedre one of the most impressive and memorable spectacles yet presented in the Greek Theater. The Merry Wives of Windsor. THE success of " The Merry Wives of Windsor " has a deeper significance than appears on the surface. It marks a new era in college dramatics, a movement toward the establishment of an ideal, and the probable decline of some of the silly little comedies heretofore presented. This movement is headed by Professor Gayley, and it was at his suggestion that this play was given under the auspices of the Dramatic Association. Without Sam Hume to play Falstaff the selection of " The Merry Wives of Windsor " might not have been so fortunate. The role of Falstaff is a difficult one, but Hume reveled in it. His work was professional. Carl Whitmore, as Ford, convinced the audience that his was real jealousy and not the ravings of John McCullough, fresh from the Boat Club Show. Whitmore ' s professional experience betrays itself in his natural ease and self possession on the stage. Those who knew him expected a great deal from him and they were not disappointed. Dave Levy forgot his own personality and, as Slender played low comedy that was truly funny. Levy protrayed stupidity, sheepishness and awkwarkness so well that he kept his audience in continuous laughter. The spontaneity of their fun made the merriness of Mrs. Page and Mrs. Ford, played by Bess Markle and Rose Schmidt, one of the fondest remembrances of the play, and it is to be wondered at that Fal- staffs duplicity toward them was not turned into reality by their attractive manner in the various scenes with him. The fairy dance was a most effective final to the play. The spectators experienced its charm and went away feeling that their center of interest had been left behind. UNDER the open sky, amid sweet strains of Mendelssohn ' s soul-touching music, wafted through the soft air of a California midsummer ' s night, more than eight thousand fascinated auditors, massed in the spacious Greek Theater, on Saturday evening, September 1 , followed Constance Crawley and her troupe in their presentation of Shakespeare ' s quaint and charming comedy, " A Midsummer Nig ht ' s Dream. " It was the opening of the year ' s dramatic season at the University, and the tremendous success of the production was exceedingly encouraging to those who love histrionic art. The play was presented on the evening of September 1 , as the calendar had predicted a full moon for that date, and the management had counted upon the pale moonlight to add a charm to the stage setting. But the moon was exceedingly modest that evening, refusing to expose its pallid countenance, and the moonlight was lacking until Starveling, the Athenian tailor, stepped upon the stage and pro- claimed himself that important adjunct to the success of the production. The absence of moonlight, however, made but little difference to the success of the per- formance, the dull gray light rather augmenting the weirdness and charm of the quaint setting. Not since the days of Ben Greet had such a presentation of Shakespearean drama been given at the University. With its delicate action and subtle humor the pl ay is well adapted to an audience drawn from a college community. To the minds of those who attended the performance will always come back the dance of the fairies, clothed in the garments of a gossamer realm, and mischievous little Puck prancing about the forest, intermixing dainty love affairs with cruel witchery. Quince, with his troupe of Athenian laymen, and Oberon, the king of Fairyland. The beautiful lines and vague witchery of the play found most happy expression and the characters excellent interpretation at the hands of Constance Crawley and her company. JVNIOR DAT THE climax of University dramatics, at least for the junior class, is reached in the Junior Curtain Raiser and Farce. Nor is the interest confined solely to the third year students, but rather permeates the whole University. The dramatic freshman looks on and listens, realizing that he must be one of the stars in the Junior Farce of his class, or never reach the zenith of his happiness. The embryo star of the sophomore class intently watches with critical eye for suggestions and bits of stage business that he can utilize to advantage when he appears in the tide role of the farce next year, in which he will unfold to the college community, and maybe to the world, for who knows what is bound up in some of these learned sophomores ? the subtle humor which has long been held in check deep down in his soul. The proud and joyful junior waits anxiously for the raising of the curtain, hoping that the performance which his class is about to present will make all previous similar efforts sink far back into the deepest oblivion, and that it will set such a lofty standard that no junior farce for many years to come will attain its level. The retired light of the senior class eagerly compares the play with last year ' s farce and savagely pounces upon the weaker places to show the inferiority of the performance to the one of the previous year. It was with no small amount of antici- pation that the audience gathered at Ye Liberty Theater on November 30, to see the Curtain Raiser and Farce of the Class of 1908. The tides, " A Pelican ' s Daughter " and " The Emeryville Ringer, " indicated that those who like to laugh and what college man or college woman does not enjoy a good joke ?- would find sufficient provocation to release their pent-up mirth. And laugh they did, for it was a really funny play. The Curtain Raiser. The Curtain Raiser, written by Julia Evans, was well adapted to its purpose and succeeded admirably in getting the audience in the right mood to enjoy a good comedy. Ida Cowley ' s Mrs. Dobbins, the University pelican, was without a flaw, Her matronly concern about Jack Knox and his health and her extreme generosity with her cough-drops were very funny. She was a true pelican, this Mrs. Dobbins, a University " girl " with particular emphasis on the quotation marks of uncertain years. Soon Daphne waft- ed in upon the scene a sweet, visionary creature in holiday dress. Who could blame Jack Knox for losing his equilibrium ? Here the pelican showed her good sense in leaving them to themselves. When a pair of amorous youngsters become so wrapt up in each other that they are entirely oblivi- ous to all that transpires about them, and visions of eternal joy and sunshine stretch out before their eyes, it is time for the chaperone, or anyone else, to vanish. Not so considerate were Tom Brown, the freshman, played by Phil Stafford, and Bob White, the easy-going junior, played by Adolph Levy, whose mischievous comments were most annoying to Jack and most amusing to the audience. Phil Stafford ' s memorable " mush " struck the right spot at the right psychological moment, and brought a roar of laughter from the house. Dave Levy, in the role of Jack Knox, carried his part creditably and gave the audience some clever acting. Edith Ostrander was a good Daphne. The soronty girls added much to the success of the performance, and the manner in which they hurled their numerous invitations at Daphne was as funny to the auditors as it was bewildering to Daphne. Miss Evans showed considerable talent as an amateur playwright in her splendid curtain raiser, " The Pelican ' s Daughter. " THE CAST.

Louetta Weir Grace Derby Helen Eschenberg Nora Evans . he Farce. Everybody laughed heartily at the Farce. The merriment was spontaneous and irrepressible. It was contagious. The blase leader of the orchestra caught it and passed it on to his fellow musicians. The joy of the auditors boomeranged back to the players themselves and their fun became irresistable. They felt the response of their audience and lived their parts. It was clever acting of clever lines and in clever situations that sustained the interest every second the curtain was up. But the audience forgot it was play acting by some talented juniors, and from the first became interested in the plot and the skillful complications of incidents which it unfolded. They failed, so to speak, to look behind the scenes. This is a very good criterion by which to judge the success and worth of a junior farce, and it includes in addition to good lines and good acting a more or less logical plot with plenty of action and a smoothness in the finished production. In these phases the pervading influence is the coach. The introduction of the stage business, as it is called, to smooth over a strained situation and add action when lines lag is an important matter which requires the long experience of a competent stage director. Hence the necessity of a coach with the experience and the ability of Garnet Holme. Had he been here before, sophomore burlesques would not have been in popular disfavor and junior farces regarded with a tinge of disrespect. It is to be hoped that he will remain here permanently. Naughty-eight has a coterie of actors of whose talent she can justly be proud. They yielded well to Holme ' s moulding, and fitted like gloves the characters of Dave Levy ' s lively farce. The story of " The Emeryville Ringer " runs briefly as follows : Willie Towtem, a racetrack tout and cheap sport of Emeryville, California, having committed a criminal offense by entering a horse in a race under an as- sumed name, is suspected but escapes arrest by fleeing the country. Somehow or other he lands at the Lakeview Hotel, a country summer resort, and here poses as Willie, the reformed. The honest and simple-hearted landlord, Jon- athan Sedgwick, a retired deacon, takes a liking to Willie and offers him the position of assistant manager of the hotel. Willie accepts and Jonathan is called away to the city, leaving Willie in charge. Here is a comical situation ; a race-track follower in charge of a temperance hotel. The situation is made the most of by the author. Willie surprises and amuses the guests by his race-track dialect. Count Caliastro and Clementina Podge, two boarders, add color and fun to the scene. A side plot worked out in detail enters now. The characters have the same idea as a motive for their actions; that summer flirtations are proper enough when not carried too far. Frank Alderson is engaged but his fiancee is miles away, as he thinks, and he decides to have a little fun. Mrs. William F. Smith, under the assumed name of Miss Smith, lends herself readily to his fun, but the arrival of Evelyn Randolph, Frank ' s fiancee, inopportunely interrupts proceedings, and Frank now is ob- liged to explain to Evelyn why he looked so lovingly into Miss Smith ' s eyes. He pictures Miss Smith as his cousin from Cambridge and alleges that she is afflicted with " Amorania, " and imagines that he is in love with her. Later Mrs. Smith sees Frank embracing his fiancee very endearingly. Although Willie Towtem " puts her wise " to Frank ' s identity, she determines to tantalize him, and so accuses him of unfaithfulness, whereupon he repeats the story he had already told Evelyn under a similar accusation. Clementina Podge, looking for some one or something to love, finally settles on Willie Towtem the whole weight of her impulsive affection, and when the detective comes sherlocking around after the Emeryville ringer, she puts him off the track of Towtem and on the track of Alderson. Frank is seized and denounced on all sides, even by his chum, Robert Collier, whom he had " cut out " in his flirtation with Mrs. Smith. At this point Mr. Smith, of the plains, arrives and flourishingly demands satisfaction from Alderson for trifling with his wife ' s affections. The disturbance is at its highest pitch when the hotel keeper rushes back from the city with knowledge that his Willie Elijah Dowie Towtem is a race-track tout. But peace soon reigns, for he identifies Frank Alderson. Willie Towtem receives news that he made a mistake and went into the wrong stall, thus he cannot be incrim- inated. His own horse had won " swiss cheese galloping, " and his fortune was made. Clementina gets the " double cinch " on Willie as her fu- ture intended ; Frank discovers in Mr. Smith an uncle, and is recon- ciled to his fiancee. Thus, as usual, every- thing ends happily. But a word two about the actors themselves. Sorne splendid work was done in the farce by the girls. Elma Ed- wards had a wonderful grasp on the part of Mrs. Smith, it life. Marguerite Daniels was a pretty and vivacious fiancee and her charming smile captured the hearts of the audience immediately. The Clementina Podge of Julia Evans was an inspiration. Her fine sense of humor gave the want-to-be-loved Clementina that trusting sincerity and naturalness which made her deliciously funny. She threw her whole personality into it and gave We are told that the stage f hands doubled up in joyous hilarity at Sam Hume ' s realistic portrayal V % of a race-track tout. The part fitted him as well as if it had been writ- ten for him. His acting was char- acterized by ease and a thorough grasp of the comic possibilities of the part. Carl Whitmore played Frank Alderson with the requisite amount of spirit and his usual intelligent interpretation. Tom Thomson did some clever work in his portrayal of the old man, Jonathan Sedgwick, the hotel keeper. George Nickel played the good-looking, independent college chap with a naturalness and freedom of style that was gratifying, especially from a heretofore unknown quantity. Van Phinney, as Count Caliastro, and Harold Baxter, as the race-track in- spector, won much praise for their characterizations of difficult parts. The rest of the cast, though in minor parts, did extremely well, and the Junior Farce of 1908 will be remembered as one of the best ever given in the University. THE CAST.

A PLAY successfully given under severe difficulties, might be said to sum up the annual performance of the Mask and Dagger Society, and it must be said that the improvements in Hearst Hall, a new curtain and a raised stage, due to the efforts of the Mask and Dagger, added materially to the enjoy- ment of the audience. It was an affair planned and carried out entirely by women, members of the Mask and Dagger, and to them the credit is due. A capable orchestra of young ladies led by Miss Julia Evans rendered several enjoyable selections. Of the play itself a few words will suffice. Under the capable coaching of Mr. Holme " The Weaker Sex " rounded rapidly into shape. The play, itself a society comedy and a difficult one, ranged from the pathetic to the ludicrous. Scenes of intense feeling were rapidly followed by amusing and laughable situations, tending to relieve the strain and to keep up the interest. Miss Ida Cowley, as Lady Vivash, an emotional character, portrayed a most difficult part m truly admirable style, showing a thorough grasp of the situation. Ethel Meredith as Mrs. Boyle-Chewton, an advocate of women ' s rights, was amusing and clever. Silvia and Rhoda, the duet daughters, rendered by Miss Reby Bartley and Miss Elma Edwards made a good contrast, and their work was well done. Melrowe Martin as Ira Lee was in a difficult role. As a whole his work was good. Carl Whitmore, as Mr. Barges, a member of Parliament, carried off the comic role of the play with his usual success and skill. Dudley Silchester, a cynical man of the world, was taken by David Levy. Levy shows the effect of much coaching and is very much at home on the stage. The remaining parts, although not of great length, had the effect of lightening the play and introduced good comedy. After all it was a difficult play in a difficult place, and the fact that it was a success indicates that each one in the cast did creditable work.

F By DR. OSCAR N. TAYLOR. ' OOTBALL prospects were dull, very dull, at the opening of the fall term. The situation stood thus: all the football men had left college, we had an unpopular game, no captain and mostly raw material to work on. But there was one thing left in college, sufficient in itself to insure success, and that was the real California spirit. A large squad of one hundred and fifty turned out to fight for their college. Cal Haffey was elected captain and everyone stood loyally behind him. Things went forward slowly but surely. We had to feel our way in organizing the team, because the game was new and many of the men had never played football of any kind before, but were showing good football form. The climax, toward which each man had been faithfully working, came in the big game on November 1 0, when the California team of raw material held down a team of veterans, and not only scored a try, but prevented their opponents, who had an especially strong scoring team, from crossing their goal line. All honor to Captain Haffey and his loyal squad. Captain Tuller will start next season with excellent prospects. He will have a lot of good material, not only from this year ' s Varsity, but also from the splendid set of men in the second fifteen. Furthermore, Rugby will not be so much on trial, for it has proved itself worthy of the best football spirit and material in any college. It has steadily won popular favor, and more especially the favor of the players who of course know the game best. Next year will see the good points of Rugby much better developed on the Coast, which will add greatly to the interest of both players and spectators. Football Season 1 906. Interclass Series. SINCE we were pioneers in introducing Rugby football on the Coast, it looked at the beginning of the season as though no practice games for the Varsity could be arranged. A senes of mterclass contests was therefore scheduled to give the men in the squad a chance to learn the game. The seven games played also gave the bleacherites an insight into Rugby. The result of the series was the victory of the senior team. This won for them the Wolf Rugby Challenge Cup. A later game between the juniors and sopho- mores gave the 1 908 " fifteen " the second place in the series. October 17, Varsity vs All Stars, 8-5. It was expected that a number of stars could be found who would give the Varsity its first serious practice game. As a matter of fact only two outside " stars " materialized, so so the game was practically a match between two teams picked from the squad. The play was very ragged, the best feature of the game being the spectacular work of Assistant Coach Elliot, who captained the All Stars. October 20, Varsity vs Pomona, 6-0. The first game of Rugby in Southern California was played with the Pomona fifteen at Los Angeles. Although our own goal was never in danger we could only score six points, the tries being made by Stanton and Whitman, who both made spectacular runs. Tuller, as wing forward also played a star game. October 24, Varsity vs Vancouver, 5-0. The first international game of Rugby was the most exciting of all the practice games. The fifteen from Van- couver were a picked and trained team, most of whom had played the game for years. Despite the fact that our style of play was inferior to that of the visitors, we were able to score a try after a spectacular 35 yard run by Whitman. Our own goal was often in danger but our success in defending it against such opponents gave good promise of what our team would do after more practice. October 27, Varsity vs Vancouver, 0-3. Our second game with the Canadians was -not so successful for us. The play was in our territory both halves, in fact the visitors were within striking distance of our goal during almost the whole game. Although outclassed, especially in passing and punting, the hard fight our boys put up kept the score down to to 3. November 3, Varsity vs Nevada, 0-3. A muddy field and a sort of slump in the team must account for the ease with which the Sagebrushers beat us. They even excelled us in the scrum, on which we had come to pride ourselves after the Vancouver games. Twice we were within striking distance of their goal but failed to cross it. This last practice game left us by no means over-confident, but with a strong faith in our team. Punting Contest. One delay after another made it necessary to postpone the contest for the Roos Punting Cup, but it was finally held on December 1 5 on the old Football Field. The ownership of the cup for this year passed to Forrest Stanton ' 09 who STAXTOX made the best averages in distance, height, and quickness in getting the punts away. Freshman Intercollegiate Game. WE had heard " Never beaten on our Home Grounds ! " until we were heartily tired of it. It had often been our intention to teach Stanford a new slogan, but it took the " babies " of 1 9 1 to convince them that the phrase was worn out. And the " babies ' " argument was good it was unanswerable. Our freshmen not only won the game they showed a marked superiority over their opponents. And that they did not win the game by a penalty kick has given no little satisfaction to the backers of the Blue and Gold. The rooters tram took many loyal Californians down to Palo Alto, and when the Stanford bleachers had filled up, it was evident that our baby fifteen would not be lacking in support. Bingham and Hume kept the rooters in action, while the Band under De Remer filled in the pauses in a manner that made the Cardinal music-makers take second place. Stanford was first on the field but was soon followed by the blue-sweatered men. Each team went through a few preliminary unlimbering stunts and then gathered in the center of the field for the toss up. Stanford won and chose the north goal to defend. Captain Bumham kicked off for California, but an offside play put the ball in scrum at the center. The play opened up at once. Stanford got the ball out of scrum and kicked to the 30 yard line in touch. California started the ball back i in ii towards center. As a penalty a free kick was awarded the Blue and Gold, but an offside play lost them the advantage. Clever passing by Stanford carried the pigskin toward our own goal, but a free penalty kick sent the ball in touch at center. For the rest of the half the ball moved from one end of the field to the other, Stanford playing somewhat better in the back field, while California excelled in the scrum. Frequent penalties, which changed the situation of the whole game in a moment, gave an exciting uncertainty as to the outcome. In the second half of the game there was less uncertainty. The California fifteen seemed stronger and fresher than before, while Stanford seemed correspond- ingly weaker. During the entire half our men threatened the Cardinal goal. Twice the Blue and Gold scrum rushed the ball across the line, but neither attempt resulted in a score. The first was not allowed and the second time a Stanford man fell on the ball, making a touchdown. Three times during the half, California kicked the ball between the opponent ' s goal posts. The second was a drop and resulted in a touchdown, but the third gave us the three points which won the game for us. The winning kick was made by Johns from the ten yard line, after a fair catch of a punt. Thus was Stanford beaten on her own field and thus also was she treated to the sight of a real serpentine on that same field. It was a good game, a good victory, and ended in a good serpentine. It was, in fact, " happiness enow.

California Field was to be the scene of the Big Game scheduled for Saturday, November 12. Friday, townspeople and students gazed at the fenceless, half- graded field and shook their heads with grave doubts. Oakland, Berkeley, Palo Alto, San Francisco all had bought tickets to the new game Rugby football and the field was far from ready. But the rooters never doubted. Under Ralph Merritt ' s leadership, they got in and worked, some of them all night, and Saturday ' s sun smiled down on the bleachers facing each other in two straight lines. The California men occupied the east bleachers, and no intercollegiate game on this coast has ever seen a larger or more enthusiastic band of rooters. The new blue rooters ' hats, white shirts, and blue and gold megaphones made a harmonious and striking display. Again we out- yelled and outsang Stanford, and our band outplayed theirs to the joy of every Calif ornian ' s heart. The Japanese day fireworks were a novel surprise to all. Never did a Berkeley pennant have a more beautiful background than those which rose from the mouth of the cannon, floated proudly over the thousands of worshippers below, and then sailed out to meet the blue sky and the Golden Gate. The Stanford team was first on the field. Shortly after- wards a greater cheering told of the entrance of the Blue and Gold. A little practice by both teams a few final words of advice and warning and the game was on ! California won the toss and chose the north goal. Whitman kicked off to Fenton of Stanford and there began at once the fast and furious play that characterized the whole I.I III I MAN game. At the outset the superiority of our scrum was very evident. Within a few minutes the Cardinal was on the defensive at its three yard line. California shoved the ball over Stanford ' s goal, but a Stanford man fell on it and so no score was made. The ball was kept in Stanford territory and twice penalties gave us an opportunity to score. But both were in unfavorable positions; the first kick went wide of the mark and the second was blocked. Then came the great moment of the day for us. From the center of the field Whitman kicked to Cheda of Stanford, who fumbled. Captain Haffey was down the field and caught the ball to carry it to Stanford ' s ten yard line. Instantly the scrum was formed and on the next play the coveted goal was crossed, Stanton making the try on a pass from Whitman. The bleachers went wild, that is the east bleachers did. Whitman failed to kick the goal, making the score 3-0. A little later, on a free penalty kick, Fenton of Stanford tied the score, and the half ended 3 to 3. The second half was marked by spectacular passing and long runs, which were much in contrast to the bucking formations of the old game. The ball went up and down the field. Both goals were frequently threatened. On another penalty, Fenton kicked the second goal for Stanford and made the final score, 6-3. No man in the team or on the bleachers begrudged Stanford her victory. Throughout the game every Cardinal player showed a true spirit of sportsmanship. California put up a good, clean and square game. There were many penalty kicks, and two such kicks won the day for Stanford. We crossed Stanford ' s goal line in the first half Stanford could not cross ours. Stanford was pen- alized about as frequently as California, but the god of luck rode on the ball for them and each time guided it into a position before the goal posts, where it could hardly fail to pass through. Our kicks on penalties were very nearly impossible; each time the ball fell very unfavorably for a goal kick. " To the victors belong the Field. " Stanford took possession and serpentined around with exulting hearts. And California held the bleachers, regretful but neither silent nor ashamed. When the Stanford legs had spent their enthusiasm, the Berkeley men showed their indomitable spirit. With one accord they crossed to the campus and rallied around the flag pole. There was another serpentine, a dance of Blue and Gold. The California emblem was lowered from where it floated on high and soberly escorted to its place in the old Armory.

T ' HE spring track season of 1 906 began enthusiastically with a stirring meeting at which one hundred and eighty men signed up for the year ' s work. Training began at once and the men worked determinedly in spite of rain and bad track. On February 22 a cross-country run took place in Golden Gate Park and California entered two strong teams of six men each. The race was run over two miles of wet roadway and proved a grueling contest. Every man on each of California ' s teams fought hard, and by consistent work the runners of the first team proved themselves better than any of the other six teams entered. They scored 66 points and won the event. The winning team consisted of Captain Wheeler ' 06, Lundy ' 06, Rhodes ' 06, Williams ' 06 and Craig ' 07. The first regular field day, the freshman-sophomore meet, occurred two weeks after this and was the first opportunity for the " babies " to show their mettle, which they did by making 73 points to the sopho- mores ' 44 points. The work of Hall, Stanton, Cowles and Dozier for the freshmen and of De Mamiel, Ostrander, Bray, Tuller and Balzari for the sophomores was particularly good. The championship inter-class meet took place on March 1 6 and the older men among whom were found most of the big C veterans were given their first try-out of the season. As W b usual, the track was muddy and as a result, the teams were a bit slow, but the races were generally hard-fought and aroused enthusiasm. When the final score was made up after the M_ hammer throw, which took place two days after the other events, P the seniors stood highest with 46 points, the hard-fighting freshmen second with 38, the somewhat crippled sophomores third with 23, and the juniors last wtth 1 5 points. The Freshman Intercollegiate Meet. DURING the early months of the track season the freshmen showed to good advantage in tryouts and meets. Through the month of March Trainer Christie devoted particular attention to them, and by the morning of the meet with Stanford they were in excellent condition. It was with a feeling of proud security that the California rooters trooped down to the oval on the afternoon of March 3 1 . Long before the start of the first race the bleachers were filled and the California rooters and the California band were holding the preliminary trials with the Stanford enthusiasts. The first race, the mile run, although a surprise in one way, was most satisfactory to Californians. Erskine, a dark horse, won the event handily, and the second man, too, wore a blue jersey. In the 1 00-yard dash and in most of the other races for that matter Cali- fornia took first and second place. This was true in the 1 20-yard hurdle, the half- mile, the high jump and the pole vault. Even the third place came to us in this last event, and in the high jump we took 8 1 j of the 9 points. In both the high and low hurdles Cowles came up to the highest expectations by winning with a sure margin. Stanford ' s hopes rose for a brief moment when Rawles won the 440-yard dash and word was brought in that the wearer of cardinal had captured the hammer-throw. Success in the shot-put shortly after made the red men even happier. After winning the high jump at 5 feet 8 inches and seeing his team-mates take 3 1 _ of the other four points in the event, Captain Channing Hall went over the bar at 6 feet 2 inches and set a new college record that will long be remembered. The two-mile run was a gamely-fought race for every one of the eleven hard laps. Lang and Gaines led most of the way but were close pressed by Morrell of Stanford. On the last lap Lang broke away with a great spnnt but was unable to hold the lead from the game Stanford youngster who beat him at the tape. The hundred was another surprise for it was thought that the Stanford captain would make a hard fight for first. And so he did but was beaten out by Stanton and Crossfield. Stanton ' s work in the 220-yard dash and the relay was also par- ticularly good. Stanford won the relay, the last event of the day, but California already had all the best of the score, making a total of 73 l 2 points against Stanford ' s 48 ' 7 points. The first freshman inter-collegiate track meet has gone into history a veritable blue and gold day. The California freshmen, backed up by the California rooters, won by a wide margin on the beautiful California oval. What more could be desired ? The Southern California All-Star Meet. THE most important track meet in which the varsity track team competed in the spring of 1 906 was the one with an All-Star team from Southern California. The field day was held on the California cinder-path, April 3, and was won by California by a score of 75 to 50. The visiting team comprised the best men to be found in the colleges of the south Pomona, Occidental and the University of Southern California being represented. The All-Stars began well by winning the mile, the first event, but California captured a close second. The hopes of the Southerners were somewhat shaken, however, by the next event, the 1 00-yard dash, for California effected a complete shut-out, the nine points being taken by Captain Snedigar, Stanton and Crossfield. The visitors had everything their own way in the quarter, taking both first and second easily. The two-twenty dash was a pretty race and was won by Stanton, with Bird of Pomona second and Snedigar, who had been working hard at the broad-jump, third. Chapin, a former Princeton athlete running for the L Diversity of Southern California, entered the mile as a sort of exhibition, it being understood that his points should not count. He ran a great race in remarkably fast time. The 880-yard run was won by Browne of Pomona, but Wroth of California showed himself to be a strong man in this event by taking a close second. Dicken- son of California, who came in third was, like Chapin, ineligible and the extra place was given to Yost. The hammer-throw was the only other event won by the All-Stars. Norman from Pomona captured first place but Elliott and Balzari of California took the other four points. The most noteworthy performance of the day was the work of the freshman, Hall. By consistent work he took the bar higher until he had outdone any jump ever made on the coast and finally cleared the bar at 6 foot 2 7 s inches, establishing a new record. The Southerners won the good will and respect of their opponents and of the spectators by their gameness and sportsmanlike conduct. Here ' s to them ! L IKE the other spring contests with Stanford victory in the baseball series of 1906 was never decided. Unlike the others, howev- er, part of the series was played. Stanford won one, California the other of the two contests and the third and deciding game would have been played on Saturday, April 2 1 , had not the events of the 1 8th put a sudden end to all college activity for the year. The baseball season was opened early in January by a little rally held by the baseball men in the training quarters. Good advice from Trainer Walter Christie and spirited talks from several of the old players put every one into a fine fettle and the opening practices were full of snap and ginger. A Aeries of games between teams representing the various Colleges of the University helped to create interest among the student body as well as to bring the more promising players into better shape so everything was in good working order when Coach McCarthy began the real season ' s training about February 1 . He found promising prospects for a victorious team. Eight of the men who had wrested victory from Stanford under most discouraging circumstances in the last game of the series the year preceeding were on the diamond once more. There were many promising aspirants for positions also, especially among the freshmen. They had an uphill fight for their C ' s before them though against the infield veterans, Schaeffer behind the bat, Newman in the box, Graham at first, Gillis at second, Gunn at third and Causley at short; and the outfielders Jordan in the left garden and Sweesy at center. Coach McCarthy lost no time in arranging a series of practice games with various high school and other teams about the bay. In one of these there came a bit of bad luck, the serious injury to Newman ' s pitching arm which practically put him out of the game for the rest of the sea- son. The struggle for varsity pitcher then was between West of the College of Medicine and Reinhard, a freshman. Both showed up well in the practice games. The student body showed its usual lack of interest in the latter by a very slim attendance. Despite this failure of support the team played on resolutely S VI I -, although the showing it made in some of these preliminary games was not encourag- ing. Thei r steady hard work began to tell at last. Two victories over Santa Clara College, two over Alameda High and two over Lick High with a couple more over the Pensacola team gave reasonable ground for confidence in the final outcome in spite of early defeats at the hands of St. Mary ' s College of Oakland and the Gantner-Matterns of San Francisco. A small bunch of rooters accompanied the team to Palo Alto on April 7 for the opening game which was played on the Stanford campus. The Cardinal won an errorless contest, by the score of one ID nothing. Every inch of the ground was fought hard by the Blue and Gold men, their only weakness being at the bat. West was in the pitcher ' s box for California and he played a heady and consistent game throughout. Two freshmen, Miller and Hiester, won their C ' s in the outfield. It required just such an occurrence as this defeat to put California thoroughly on her mettle. Every one realized that the old story of the varsity winning the first two games of the series and thus dispensing with the rubber was not to be told this year. The effect of awakened spirit was seen at the second game. Never did a more enthusiastic crowd assemble to cheer a California team to victory than the one which over- flowed the bleachers of the old football field April 1 4. The first three innings were disastrous [for California. West was hit hard and often and with the score three to one in favor of Stanford the prospects for a Cardinal victory in a base- ball series seemed very bright at the end of the third inning. But California had one more card to play. That was her new pitcher. Freshman Reinhard. He relieved West in the fourth and from that to the end of the ninth Stanford stock steadily RK in declined while California ' s rose. The Cardinal batters scored only one hit off Reinhard ' s delivery and made not another run. The freshman fielded his position as well as pitched in f aultless style. Good batting and all-round team work by California brought the score to 4 to 3 in favor of the Blue and Gold by the end of the sixth inning. There it remained until the end. It was a great demonstration of how California spirit can change defeat into victory. When the next Saturday came, the time set for the crucial game, California ' s men were doing guard duty on the streets of San Francisco; Stanford ' s were scattering to their homes saddened by the ruin which had befallen their University. So the fifteenth baseball series must remain that most unsatisfactory of things in athletics, a tie. What the result of the third game would have been no one can tell. But if victory had not come to California it would not have been the fault of either her players or her rooters.

DURING the fall of 1906 the Interfraternity Baseball League was organized with C. J. Tripp, ' 07, president and John Tyssowski, ' 08, secretary. A schedule was arranged providing for 20 games between nines representing the various fraternities at the University. Some of the matches were especially dose and interest never flagged. The final game was delayed until after the Christmas holidays, when the Phi Sigma Delta team won the cup by defeating the Kappa Alpha nine by the score of 8 to 2. DESPITE the up-hill conditions encountered, rowing is becoming prominent by such leaps and bounds that it bids fair soon to occupy a position second to no other college sport. This is evident when we review the history of row- ing at the University. Previous to 1 904 the only rowing meets in which our crews had entered were with northern universities. In 1903, the Varsity crew went north and made a creditable showing, although it was defeated by the University of Wash- ington and the Portland Rowing Club. The first intercollegiate regatta in which California and Stanford competed was held in the spring of 1904. A crew from the University of Washington also en- tered, and this three-cornered event marked the establishment of rowing as an im- portant intercollegiate sport. Our decisive victory in this event gave a great impetus to the interest in rowing. The three-cornered regatta in 1905 was equally successful for us, and brought into our permanent possession the Lippy boating trophy, which we had first won from Washington in 1 904. The only rowing event of last year was the interclass regatta. The performance of the crews in this meet gave great promise for what we would do in the tri- angular intercollegiate event which was sched- uled for April 28, 1906. Stanford also boasted a crack crew, and a very exciting contest was expected. Elaborate plans were made for observation trains on the shore, and a bevy of yachts and boats were to be present. It is to be greatly regretted that this event was made impossible by the catastrophe of April 1 8. Boating Association. To write the record of rowing for the past year we must write the record of the Boating .Association, because all the energies and funds of this organization have been devoted to the furtherance of intercollegiate rowing. The first big stride was the purchase of the ferryboat " Amador " from the Southern Pacific Company. In 1 895 the commodious clubhouse at Sessions Basin was burned down, and ever since then there has been crying need for adequate quarters. The officers of the Boating Association obtained an option on the boat for $1,000, and this large amount was raised principally through subscriptions from the alumni. Great credit is due to the men of the association who carried this through. The " Amador " was first located at the outlet of Lake Merritt, but was later towed to a permanent location on Sessions Basin. The floating clubhouse is moored to the dock of the Magnesite Brick Co. The location has proven very convenient. The channel nearby has been extensively dredged and affords an excellent practice course. Considerable work was necessary to transform the old ferryboat into a club- house. The engines had been removed by the Southern Pacific Company. An apron has been built and a float anchored at the end of it. The upper deck is to be used as the clubhouse, and the staterooms are to be used as dressing rooms. The equipment is being constantly added to and will soon be complete. The purchase of the " Amador " was celebrated by a Boat Club Opening, held on the evening of March 7, 1 906. A big crowd attended and enjoyed the jolli- fication. The most striking feature of the evening was the exhibition given by the Varsity crew. It was a clear, moonlight night, and the five white-clad figures skim- ming over the water made a beautiful sight. On the evening of September 25, 1906, the Association gave a " Boat Club Show. " An excellent program was given which brought much applause from the crowd which attended. The proceeds were speedily used in paying off the debt which still remained from the purchase of the four-oared shells from Cornell. At present the energies of the Association are directed toward raising funds for the purchase of eight-oared shells. In 1904 the races were rowed in heavy barges; in 1905 and 1906 four-oared shells were used; and now for 1907 it is assured that Stanford, Washington and California will each have eight-oared shells. This has been made possible for California by the generous contributions from alumni and students. A letter from President Wheeler, and also one from John Tyssowski, president of the Association, was addressed to all the alumni, asking for contributions toward the " eights. " The speedy and generous response was very gratifying. Nor were the students outdone by the alumni. The class of 1 908 created a good precedent by voting $75 to the fund, and the freshmen followed suit with $100. An excellent innovation introduced this year was fall training. Even during football season there were forty freshmen out for rowing. Fall training for the Var- sity started after the football season. A big and promising squad turned out which promised a crack crew for the " eights. " VARSITY CREW FOR 1906. No. 1 , McFarland. No. 2, Tuller. No. 3, Jones (Captain) No. 4, Schmidt. Coxwain, Loeb. Interclass Regatta. MARCH 26, 1906. A mild but persistent rain kept a good many people away from the regatta, but did not otherwise mar what was probably the most hotly contested interclass meet ever held. Despite the weather the winning senior team covered the course in 5:43, which is fast time for the heavy barge they rowed in. In the preliminaries the freshmen showed their mettle by beating the sophomores, who were acknowledged the huskiest crew in the meet. The seniors beat the juniors, and this left the freshmen and seniors to contest for final honors. Both teams made a favorable start, and settled down at once to the long, hard pull. A fast pace was set from the first. The two boats were soon abreast and rowed side by side, neither crew seeming to be able to take the lead. On they came, as though impelled by a single motive power, and it was not until almost the finish that the seniors made a desperate effort and pulled ahead, winning the race by a bare yard. The excellent form displayed by both crews in this trying race was a striking evidence of the efficient training which the men received from E. M. Gamett, the enthusiastic and hard-working coach. The University hopes to keep him to help build up this sport, in the development of which he has already played a most im- portant part. CALIFORNIA ' S chance of continuing her long series of tennis victories over Stanford were more than usually good at the opening of the season of 1 906. The veterans of the previous season, Neil Baker ' 06 in the singles, and Claude Wayne ' 07 and Bob Variel ' 06 in the doubles, were still with us, while competing with them for places on the team were several of the most promising men yet seen on the University courts. There was however a serious drawback. Only one court was available for practice games and tryouts. Even that one was in an unsatisfactory condition. Most of the men put in more time sitting on the side lines waiting for a turn at the court than in actual practice, yet over thirty signed up for the first tournament and the games proceeded with increasing interest. As the tournament narrowed to a close it could be seen that Baker had to reckon with Herbert Long ' 09 for the honor of singles champion of the University. The finals between these two was as close and exciting a match as had been seen on the University courts for many a year. Long won, 6-3, 6-1. The winner had brought with him to the University considerable fame as a wielder of the racket, but he had need to exert every bit of his skill before he wrested the singles championship from the man who had held it through the two preceding hard fought seasons. Progress was slow in the doubles events and the great disaster put an end to the series while two matches remained yet to be played. Long ' 09 and Baker ' 06 were pitted against Lowell ' 07 and Francis ' 07; the winners of this match were to play the finals with Variel ' 06 and Wayne ' 07, the champions of the preceding year. Whichever team had won out in this series would have been worthy representatives of the University in the annual contests with Stanford. Mill . California-Stanford Athletic Contests.

W. S. Under this head the women ' s Basket-ball, Tennis and Boating clubs were united for the purpose of furthering the athletic spirit among the women of the University. The wisdom of such a step has been shown by the rapid growth since that date of the clubs repre- sented. In the six years since 1 90 1 the Basket-ball and Tennis dubs have doubled, the Boating club trebled their members. A Fencing club was added in December 1 906, with an initial membership of thirty. The last has been a red letter year, both in increase in membership and i n class of work done in the different sports. Almost every name on the long membership list today stands for an active, working member. The year ' s success is largely due to the energy of Miss Cornelia Stratton, president of the A. W. S., and Miss Lily Wright, president of the Sports and Pastimes, in organizing the girls into working shape at the very opening of the fall term. Hearst Hall is becoming a recognized meeting place for the women students, and, for the first time, they as a whole are making use of the advantages there offered them. Within is one of the finest equipped gymnasiums in the United States, and, just under its eaves, the splendid tan-bark basket-ball court and asphaltum tennis court all the generous gifts of Mrs. Hearst. Hearst Hall is also the scene of luncheons given to visiting teams, and the jolly " jinks. " Here is held the Masque- rade, the merriest event of all, given annually by " Sports and Pastimes " to defray the expenses of the athletic year. On the whole Hearst Hall and the Sports and Pastimes offer a splendid opportunity to the women of the University to indulge in that form of college activity which is so essential to the proper participation and enjoyment in work of a more serious nature. Basket-Bali. BASKET-BALL is the oldest of athletic organizations in the Sports and Pastimes. But every year new features are added that increase its popularity. This year the game held a new interest for all players ; for there were thirty- six positions opened to them. Each class had to get a team into playing-trim for the inter-class championship. It was a hard-fought contest, won at last on a percentage basis by the seniors. They were the first ones to have the record of their victory engraved on the championship cup, which was bought this year out of the basket-ball treasury. When the inter-class contest was over the girls worked hard to earn places on the first team to play against Stanford. Professor Magee came out twice a week to coach them. The team that was chosen was as follows : Fowards : Right : Cornelia Stratton Left : Lilian Wright Center : Bertha Leader Centers : Right: Helen Eschenburg Left : Alice Joy Center : Martha Leader Captain : Lilian Wright Guards : Right: Clarice Davis Left: Marion Craig Center: Helen Pinkham Substitutes : Forward : Christine Krysto Center : Alice Jones Guard : Edith Harriman Manager: Marion Craig The score was 1 7 to 1 in favor of California. Tennis. THE tennis club has also become more thoroughly organized and unified under the managership of Miss Miriam Edwards. The interclass contests have given the girls practice for their individual playing and trained them for tournament work. A great many girls signed up for the tryouts, and after a long series of games the final winners of the different classes were : Freshman : Louise Taney Sophomore : Ara Brown Junior : Marion Tavemer Senior : Marion Craig The club has a new silver cup this year, on which is to be engraved the names of those two players who are to represent California against Stanford. In the majority of years California has been the victor and there is every indication that 1907 will bring another success. Boating. THE women turned out in large numbers this year, and each day saw many on Lake Merritt perfecting themselves in handling the oar under the skillful instruction of Mr. Fatjo. The conclusion of the year ' s work came on Woman ' s Day, February 22, when, under doudy skies, the crews met on the lake to test their relative skill. The shore was crowded with spectators whose eager interest was not the least dampened by the weather. It was the largest and most enthusiastic crowd that has ever assembled to watch a woman ' s boating event, and they were rewarded by an exciting race. The graduate crew covered the half-mile course first, the junior crew not a half boat ' s length behind ; then followed the freshman, senior and sophomore boats in order named. Special mention should be made of the good form shown by the freshmen. The winning crew : Coxswain : Clara Cullen, ' 06 Stroke : Mabel Reid, ' 06 Bow: Katherine Douglass, ' 06 Fencing. THE Fencing club was admitted to Sports and Pastimes in December, 1906, and membership is now open to all women students in the University. It has a membership of about thirty, which is divided into three sections which meet twice a week under the instruction of Professor Magee. The weapons are provided by the club and rented to the members at a nominal sum. So few women are practiced in the use of the foils that no fencing contests are to be held this term. At the opening of the fall term a series of interclass bouts is planned, and it is hoped to hold a meet with Stanford before the end of the year, as the girls there are desirous of forming a club if an instructor can be secured. The founders of Fencing club were as follows : Cecil Harrold, ' 07 Marian Craig, ' 06 Lulu Hall, ' 07 Jessie Bowers, ' 07 Reba R. Galvin, ' 08 Maude Cleveland, ' 09 Lillie Jonasen, ' 09 THE YOUNG MEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION was organized in 1 884, with a charter ' membership of eight men. For a number of years the organization had but few members and confined its activity to a sinrie weekly meeting, but with the advent of Stiles Hall in 1 893, the facilities for association work were greatly augmented and the organization was placed on a more substantial basis. From that time to the present its growth has been steady and it is now a well recognized factor in the life of the University. The preseiA membership of the association is 350 men. This membership is limited to male students and members of the faculty of the University. Active member- ship is confined to those who are members of evangelical churches, but associate membtrship is not restricted to those of any particular creed. The purpose of the association finds its expression through its various lines of activity, as through Bible study, religious meetings, mission study, social work, work for new students, employment bureau, information bureau, boarding-house directory and Stiles Hall Tavern. It is the policy of the organization to make the building and its privileges as valuable as possible to all student bodies. While the primary object of the hall is religious and philanthropic, the association endeavors to make it as largely useful socially as possible. The hall is an invaluable adjunct to the association in its endeavor to give every man in the University the opportunity of meeting his fellow students outside the classroom.

Socially, it brings the women students together as does no other University organization. Its reception to the freshmen early in the fall term, together with its informal receptions throughout the year, are of the greatest importance in the social life of the University. But aside from its social activity, its spiritual work is invaluable. Devotional meetings and Bible study classes are gradually making the Association recognized as one of the strongest factors for nght in the University. OFFICERS.

THE PRESERVATION of some kind of unity among the Catholic stu- dents at the University has been the purpose of the Newman Club since its organization. This purpose was carried out by means of meetings, lectures by various distinguished clergymen and laymen of the Catholic faith, and by social gatherings. Several handicaps restricted the work of the club, among the greatest of these being the lack of some one who could devote all of his time to the interests of the organization. This difficulty has been remedied by the appointment of Rev. Dr. Thomas V. Moore to be chaplain of the Catholic students of the Uni- versity. Dr. Moore is a recent arrival from New York. He is a member of the Paulist community, and was appointed to the position by the Archbishop of the diocese, because of his peculiar fitness for its requirements. Under his guidance the Newman Club bids fair to enter on a period of greater activity and prosperity than ever before. Some very ambitious plans have already been formed and when these are carried out the Newman Club will assume a very prominent position among college organizations.

Hayes, ' 09 THC FACOCTV CLUB EARLY IN 1 902 plans were drawn up for a $2000 Faculty Clubhouse, to be erected on a site along Strawberry creek, and to be given by the Univer- sity. The building, which was completed within the year, was the out- growth of the long felt need for some common ground upon which the members of our rapidly increasing faculty could meet for their mutual benefit. Since 1 902 several improvements and additions have been made to the orig- inal building for the purpose of allowing some few of the members who so desired to live at the clu b. It is at present the home of six members. The general club rooms are equipped with billiard, card and pool tables, one or two of the smaller rooms being used for committee meetings. The Faculty Club is a corporation in which any officer of administration or instruction in the University is eligible to membership. The active membership is about 1 75. The present clubhouse, including its adjoining tennis court, represents an investment of about $12,000 the cost of which has been met by an issue of bonds. A small initiation fee and annual dues suffice to meet the running expenses of the club. The officers of the club are a president and a secretary, who is also treasurer. These two are also members of the board of seven directors, elected annually. The directors are: Prof. Irving Stringham, president; Prof. M. N. Haskell, secretaty and treasurer; Prof. C. S. Cory, Prof. G. C. Noble, Prof. E. O ' Neill, Prof. M. E. Jaffa, Assistant Prof. L. Hutchinson. THERE have always been in years past clubs and societies covering the various fields of artistic activity in the University, and the English Club, the first established of these, in the main devoted itself to the fostering of literary interest among the undergraduates. The Occident Company brought forth the results of this influence, as well as the efforts of neophytes. Those literarily inclined long flourished under the encouragement of these institutions. But for those other artists, the actors, little has been done in the way of organ- ized support. There have been plays and players, and shall be. Unhappy attempts towards dramatic clubs mark the years since before the time of Schwartz and Fully; but not until our own times has such a thing as a dramatic association of the University become an established fact. This society gave its first play last semester. This semester it joins itself to the English Club, and to the Occident Company, and becomes a part of the organization, to be known as the English Club, which undertakes the publication of the Occident Magazine and the presen- tation of plays in the Greek Theater. Incidentally there will continue the encour- agement of incipient genius, whether of literary or histrionic expression. As to the success of the new venture, one is not at all doubtful. Certainly a community of interests is a good thing; and a consorting of the poet and the actor should be to the advantage of both. The officers are: President J. R. Gabbert, ' 07 Vice- President Ethel Meredith, ' 07 Secretary - Irma Weill, ' 07 Treasurer R. L. Mikel, ' 09 The various departments of the new club are in the hands of managing com- mittees. THE College of Commerce Club was first organized for the purpose of familiarizing its members with modern industnal and economic affairs by regular discussions of topics of current interest and by occasional addresses given by prominent business men and other well known men of affairs. But as these addresses now form a required course in the College of Commerce and are arranged for by the faculty, the club has adopted the policy of visiting in a body, about once a month, some of the various manufacturing and industnal concerns about the bay. On these trips the members of the club are always received by the manage- ment whh the greatest courtesy and are able to learn many technical facts about the working of these industrial enterprises, which are not apparent to the ordinary visitor. Besides these trips, in which the members of the club, including the faculty of the College of Commerce, are thrown together in an informal way, a banquet is held once a year to further promote the good fellowship and acquaintance of the members. The banquet held last year on the Saturday night preceding April 1 8, in the Califorria Hotel in San Francisco, was probably the last banquet ever held in that place. The membership, which was originally composed of students registered in the College of Commerce, has been extended to admit students from the other colleges who are interested in industrial and commercial affairs.

At present they are endeav- oring to raise enough money to buy or build a house in Berkeley to use as a meeting place of the German students. For this reason the " Pension Scholler " was given at the Macdonough Theater under the auspices of the Deutscher Verein. This play was successful in all ways and brought a considerable sum to the fund. The Deutscher Verein is the most important of these clubs. It is in the nature of an honor society and under the control of the German Department. President - Mr. L. J. Demeter Vice President - - Miss A. M.

It also gave " Zarequete, " the first play ever given in a foreign tongue in the University. At present the club is in a state of reorganization, as it was dis- continued last term. The object of the club is to advance conversation in the Spanish language, and to promote interest in its literature. The meetings are held every other Wednesday at the homes of the members, where the conversation is entirely in Spanish, Spanish papers are read and Spanish recitations given. At these meetings each member is required to do something. The membership is not limited to University students alone, but any one who is interested in Spanish life and letters may become a member.

" 07 ONE of the largest of the language organizaticns is the Club, having a membership of over one hundred. It is composed of students who are interested in the French language, and have had at least six months work in it. Members of the faculty are also eligible. Like most of the language clubs, its object is to promote conversation and to cultivate a taste for French liter- ature. Meetings are held every two weeks at the homes of the members. The club is governed by its officers and two committees, the Program Committee and the Executive Committee. The former committee arranges the program at the meetings, while the latter committee passes on membership and like business. Re- cently the club gave a veiy successful play.

The purpose of this organization is to create a spirit of good-fellowship among its members and to increase their practical knowledge of mining by attendance on addresses delivered by professors and men of practical experience from outside the college world. Once each term a banquet is held at which the members have a chance to meet successful mining men and their college instructors in a social way. During the summer vacation many of the members of the association find employment in the mines throughough California and Nevada. The experience gained by them is given to the association when they return for the regular college work. This has proved a most valuable feature.

It also endeavors to further a general interest in engineering and to advance the knowledge of its members along scientific lines. 7 his is accomplished by trips to engineering works within reach of Berkeley and by lectures by prominent engineers. On the trips the members are often the guests of the engineer in charge, who is cartful to offer them every possible opportunity to study the work under his direction. Not infrequently professional engineers are good enough to entertain ihe visiting members of the association socially, and at other times an attempt is made to have the trips partake of the nature of picnics. The object of the lectures is to allow the members opportunity of listening to the advice of the men who have actually done what each student hopes some day to accomplish. Members are brought into a more personal acquaintance with practical men. The spirit shown by the latter has always been excellent. Many busy men have left their work to address the society. 7 he association maintains a library, continually increasing through purchases and gifts of its friends. With the removal of the College of Mining from the Civil Engineering building the association will receive a room to be used as a library, reading and study room by the members.

The members have presented the claims of the college to the State legislature with the result that several large appropriations have been made, and it is expected that in the near future a new building will be provided. The members of the club hold a banquet each year, and meetings are frequently addressed by experts in some agricultural practice. Trips are taken to nearby farms and stock ranches. In December, 1 906, the members edited and published a pamphlet setting forth the needs of the college, and these pamphlets were sent all over the state, thus creating a strong sentiment in favor of the college.

The dub is purely social in its nature, aiming to promote good will and fellowship among the students themselves and between the students and the faculty. Twice a year the grave and dignified old chemistry corridors become mysterious and uncanny with witches and jack-o-lanterns, on which occasions certain freshmen are introduced into wonders and arts of chemistry which they had never dreamed of before. On other occasions acid bottles and apparatus are hidden by banks of gerar.iums and foliage, and the old corridors become once more the scene of a merry time. OFFICERS.

THE Associated Electrical and Mechanical Engineers was organized in February, 1902, by a few upper-class men in the College of Mechanics. It was the first permanent organization of its kind to be established, but its benefits were so immediately recognized that similar organizations sprang up shortly afterwards in the other colleges of applied science. The purposes of the association are to bring the members into closer touch with each other and the faculty and to supplement the theoretical instruction of the class- room with practical talks or lectures from leading engineers on the coast and with trips to power plants and points of interest about the bay. In addition to the social features of the meetings a banquet is held each term. This banquet is attended by the faculty and all the members of the association, and is always looked forward to as one of the most pleasant features of the term. The membership consists of the upper classmen in the College of Mechanics and honorary members elected from the faculty. President Vice-president Recording secretary Fall Term H. M. Hall, ' 07 W. B.

At the beginning of the present year the club was completely reorganized, and a systematic course of discussion was taken up at special meetings held every two weeks at the homes of the members. DeVnes mutation theory was selected as a basis for study. At each meeting a prepared subject is discussed by some memlxi, and latei the discussion is thrown open to all members of the club. These meetings have proved very successful, the attendance being good and the interest keen. With the exception of a reception given each year, the work of the club is stnctly along lines of scientific interest. At the regular monthly meetings some member of the faculty or of the Medical Department delivers a lecture under the auspices of the club. These lecture generally attract considerable attention among students and professors in other branches of science. The membership is open to any student interested in biological work. At present there are 40 undergraduate members, four graduate, and seven faculty members. President C. E. Wells. ' 08 Vice-President - - Miss Gertrude E. Neely, ' 07 Secretary - Miss Elsie M. Cole, ' 08 Treasurer - C. L. Hoag, ' 09 ONE OF the most important organizations in the University and ohe of the least known is the John Marshall Law Club. It is under the special protection of ' the faculty of the Law Department, and is composed of the law students in the University. The object of the club is to furnish the law students with an opportunity of learning the mechanism and practice of American law courts. It does this by holding a regularly appointed court, where mock trials take place and decisions are rendered. For this reason it is generally known as the Moot Court. Meetings are held every two weeks at the home of some one of the members, or member of the faculty. To these meetings members of the profession are invited, as well as members of the faculty. These men listen to the trials and debates and afterward criticize and suggest improvements. In this way the law students get the greatest benefit from the club. All law stu- dents in the University are eligible for membership. No dues are charged, except that at each meeting a small assessment is collected to cover the cost of refreshments. One of the most serious drawbacks to the club is the lack of a large number of law students in the University. But otherwise the club is in a highly flourishing condition. There are only two officers, the chancellor, elected by the graduate students, and the clerk, elected by the undergraduates. The officers hold office for a year. Chancellor Clerk E. D. White, ' 05 H. E. Leach, ' 07 MINNEH CLUB THE MINNEHAHA Club is the joint organization of the Prohibition Club and the Somerset branch of the Young Women ' s Christian Temperance Union. The Prohibition Club and the Young Women ' s Christian Tem- perence Union are connected with the national prohibition movement, while the Minrehaha Club is organized to carry on the purely local work. The Minne- haha Club is therefore a strictly local organization and is only connected indirectly with the national movement, through the other two organizations. The aim of the Minnehaha Club is purely educational. It endeavors to arouse interest in the prohibition movement by educating the public as to the dangers of the liquor traffic. Each year a course of study is taken up bearing on the liquor question. This question is taken up and discussed thoroughly at the meetings, which are held every two weeks. The question for this year is: " The Relation of the Liquor Traffic to the Government. " Occasionally prominent speakers of the prohibition movement address the meetings. The membership of the club is between 1 5 and 20. The officers are chosen from the officers of the Prohibition Club and the Young Women ' s Chris- tian Temperance Union. The President and Secretary of the Minnehaha Club are the President and Secretary of the Prohibition Club, while the Vice-President and Treasurer hold like offices in the Young Women ' s Christian Temperance Union. President E. L. Lord, " 07 Vice-President - Miss K. O. Banb, ' 06 Secretary L. H. Day, ' 09 Treasurer ------ Miss E. V. Neible, ' 07 ABOUT 1 904, after a breaking up of the former Press Club on account of lack of harmony among the members, the University of California Press Club, as it exists to-day, was established. Its objects were to secure a better understanding and feeling between the various college publications and to promote unity of effort among the editorial and business staffs of the papers. The charter members were the editors and managers of the regular college papers. In 1905 H. L.

The -membership at present is about 20. President J. R. Gabbert, ' 07 Secretary - R. E.- Warner, ' 07 XHEr THE STUDENTS ' Co-operative Society, with its store popularly known as " the Co-op, " is one of the important factors of college life. The society is purely democratic in its organization. It has no shares of stock. Any person connected with the University may become a member of the society upon the payment of one dollar. Each member, on making a purchase amounting to more than twenty-five certs, gives to the clerk the number of his membership ticket, a record is made of his number and the amount of his purchase. At the end of the year the surplus earnings of the society, after providing for proper reserve funds, are returned to the members, in rebates in proportion to the amount of the registered purchases. The past three years this rebate has been 8 per cent of the purchases. The purpose of the society is to furnish the members of the University with text-books, note-books, stationery, drawing instruments and other college supplies at reduced rates. At present the society is endeavoring to create a building fund for a new and larger store, which its increased business demands. The sales for the college years of 1904-1905 were $54,000; for the years 1905-1906, $59,000, and for the years 1906-1907, $65,000. The society is governed by a board of directors elected by the members, and its business is conducted by a manager appointed by the board. Secretary and Manager James R.

Waite, who was then commandant of the University cadets. The object of this organization is to encourage markmanship by competitive shoots, held at regular intervals. These shoots will be held with other universities and pistol clubs. Two medals will be awarded at the end of each year in accordance with the rules of the organization. Any member of the faculty or any student in the University is eligible to membership. Although of recent organization, much interest has already been evinced and a weekly practice and a large number of members has been enrolled. THE RIFLE CLUB is composed of all those who have made the Rifle Team of the University. This rifle team is under the general supervision of the military department and under the special direction of Captain J. T. Nance. The team is chosen after a long series of competitive shoots. During the past year much interest has been taken and the number of contestants has been unusually large. The team ranks with the best collegiate marksmen in the country, and it is hoped that intercollegiate matches will be arranged in the near future. Matches have been held between our rifle team and one picked from the National Guard of California, in which our men were victorious, thus showing the high standard of marksmanship which they have maintained. The interest thus far awakened point? to a most suscessful future for the Rifle Club. THE CHESS CLUB was formed to meet the demands of the chess players. They realized that no real perfection or recognition of the game could be gained without co-operation. The result of this organi- zation was eminently satisfying. Since the formation of the crub there has been constant improvement and the game has been recognized as an intercollegiate activity. ' The club is composed of students in the University who play the game of chess. No special skill is required for membership; that is supposed to be gained later by practice. One of the objects of the club is to provide for the annual tournament with Stanford. The club has no regular time of meeting, but the members generally meet every Saturday evening in Stiles Hall. Tournaments are held within the club and with outside clubs, and there is an annual tournament with Stanford. Recently the club defeated the Alameda County Chess Club. Interest is kept up by competition for the Shreve cup. This is a large silver cup donated by Shreve, to be played for each year. It is in the nature of a perpetual challenge trophy, the winning man holding it for one year only, when it must be played for again. The winning man has his name engraved on it. The cup was donated last year and won for the first time by R. L. Egenhoff, ' 08. The present holder is C. J. Gibbs, ' 07. The club has no officers, but is managed by the chess committee, appointed by the president of the Associated Students. C. J. Gibbs, ' 07 COMMITTEE C. E. Keyes, ' 07 R. L. Egenhoff, ' 08 A COMBINATION of two literary organizations, the Durant Club and Neolean Society, resulted in the formation of the Students ' Congress nearly 1 5 years ago. Thus the Congress is the oldest debating society in the University. Unlike its rival, the Senate, membership in the Congress is not limited. The executive committee, to which applications for membership are referred, exercises its discretion to keep the number of members within limits which enable each member to have the largest amount of practice in debating that can be afforded. Two circumstances have greatly stimulated interest in the work of the Con- gress this year. The first of these was the final debate for the possession of the Keller Cup, held with the Senate. In this the Congress was victorious. The other circumstance was the division of the Congress into two sections at the beginning of the year. These sections debate against each other at each meeting, and at the end of each term the section which has lost the largest number of debates banquets the victorious section. This plan has proved a great success. OFFICERS. First Term N. A. Eisner, ' 07 M. A. Dernham, ' 07 J. M. Burke, ' 08 Speaker Speaker Pro Tem Clerk Treasurer Second Term M. A. Derham, ' 07 J. M.

In order that each might obtain frequent prance in debating, the membership was limited to thirty. Bi-weekly meetings were held and by a steady, gradual growth the society has taken its place as one of the permanent student organizations. Debates, followed by discussion from the floor, are held on live questions of the day, varying in scope from college to national, and as a rule are characterized by seriousness and con- scientious preparation. That the practice in debate is valuable to the University is shown by the number of senators who have held important student positions and more directly by the number of men which the Senate has contributed to the various interclass and intercollegiate debating teams. Annual debates are held with the Students ' Congress, and each year the two societies unite in a banquet in honor of the Camot team. During the past year the Senate has paid particular attention to questions of col- legiate interest. The Honor System, the retention of Rugby football and the partici- pation of freshmen in intercollegiate contests have all furnished material for lively and interesting discussions. Although the preparation of such debates is not as laborious, nor the preliminary reading as exhaustive as on some other questions, this fact is com- pensated by the added interest taken by the debaters. At the same time the great national issues have not been neglected in the discussions of the Senate. President - Vice- President Secretary - - Treasurer - OFFICERS. First Term H. H. Kelley, ' 07 M.

This year ' s society has been fortunate in all its contests with the sophomores. When the sophomores tried to break up the first meeting they were routed, and in the annual interclass debate the sophomores again lost. The object of this organization is to advance the science and art of debating. It does this by debates within itself and by an annual debate with the Sophomore Debating Society. Meetings are held every other Wednesday in Stiles Hall, where many lively discussions are heard. The society is managed by an executive council composed of the officers and one elected member.

Wight THE Boating Association or " Boat Club, " as it is better known, is composed of men of the various classes of the University, together with alumni and several prominent men who, although not college men, are interes ted in boating. Since its organization in I 893 the association has offered an opportunity for those interested to participate in aquatic sports, and has besides, since 1 903, car- ried on with slight aid from the Associated Students the intercollegiate rowing contests. One of the most unique and satisfactory club-houses in the country is owned by the Association. It is the old Southern Pacific ferry steamer Amador, now moored on the Sessions Basin at the foot of Fifth avenue. East Oakland. There are kept the club ' s pleasure boats and racing craft, and there also the members meet for the social affairs and jolly-ups which are regularly held. The most notable recent activity of the Association is its success in raising a fund to purchase eight-oared shells, so that hereafter we may have " eights " in the Varsity regattas. OFFICERS.

Rogers and at this meeting the Economics Club was established for the purpose of investigating and discussing economic, political and social problems. A constitution was adopted which provides for the usual officers, exec- utive and membership committees, limits the undergraduate membership to fifteen, and calls for regular monthly meetings. Thus far, however, the interest in the club has been so great that no two meetings have been as far apart as provided in the organic law. At each meeting a paper on a given topic is read, after which an informal discussion takes place. Thus far the following papers have formed bases for the meetings: " The Foreign Trade of Central America, " by Klein; " The Eco- nomic Geography of Georgia, " by Akerman; " Hemp in the Philippines, " by Rankin, and " Socialism and Anarchism, a Comparison, " by Rogers. Besides these, six members of the club have been doing some original work looking into the causes of the rice in prices and of other conditions in San Francisco, and the result of these investigations will be heard in the near future. A paper on the socialist theory of increasing misery, by Beach, and one on the legal aspects of the Japanese question by Morin, are also in preparation. President Julius Klein, ' 07 Vice-President S. H. Beach, ' 06 Secretary-Treasurer - E. M. Peixotto, ' 08 THE PURPOSE of the Philosophical Union is the presentation and discus- sion of philosophical questions. Meetings for this purpose are held once a month. A paper is presented at each meeting and the discussion, opened by an appointed leader, is followed immediately. Readers of papers are limited to thirty minutes and leaders of discussion to ten minutes. Members are invited to take an active part in each discussion. A great deal of interest has been awakened in the union during the past year. The basis of discussion has been a volume entitled, " Some Dogmas of Religion, " by Dr. J. E. McTaggart of the University of Cambridge. This book pre- sents in a lucid manner a present-day philosophical approach to certain of the fun- damental problems of religion. The programme for the study of religious problems based upon this book of Dr. McTaggart ' s was as follows: November 23, 1906 " The Necessity and Ground of Dogma, " Professor C. H. Rieber. December 1 4, 1 906 " Free Will, " Rev. R. P. Shepherd. January 27, 1907 " Human Immortality, " Dr. F. R. Wrinch. February 15, 1907 " Human Pre-Existence, " Professor G. H. Howison. March 29, 1907 " God as Omnipotent, " Dr. M. E. Blanchard. April 26, 1907 " God as Non-Omnipotent, " Professor John W. Buckham, of the Pacific Theological Seminary. May 10, 1907 " Theism and Happiness, " Dr. W. E. Hocking. August 23, 1907 Annual Public Address, John Ellis McTaggart, Doctor in Letters, Fellow and Lecturer of Trinity College, in Cambridge. OFFICERS. President Professor C. H. Rieber Secretary - - Professor H. A. Overstreet IN November, 1905, the Southern Club of the University of California was or- ganized under the leadership of T. F. Carter, ' 07, Miss Mary Le Conte, ' 06, and others. As in other universities its aim is purely social. The idea is not to preserve a feeling of loyalty to the Confederacy and animosity to the Union, but merely to effect a more intimate social intercourse among college people from the provincial South. Meetings are held occasionally at the houses of members, and two dances are given each term. During the past term, the club met at the homes of Misses Neely, Lawton and Biddle. On February 26 the club entertained about thirty invited guests at a dance in Wilkins Hall. Any one connected with the University who is himself a Southern or whose descent is Southern is eligible to membership ; faculty and graduates to honorary membership, undergraduates to active.

The purpose of the Association is to bring the students of architecture together for their social and intellectual welfare. The first efforts of the Association were directed toward obtaining instruction in water color, pen and ink, and modeling, and courses in these subjects were added to the Department of Architecture at the beginning of 1906. The first annual exhibition of the work of the department was held by the Association in the Architectural building from December 1 3 to 1 7, 1 906. About one hundred and thirty plates were hung, covering work in architectural design, water color sketching, pen and ink sketching, original drawings from the Phoebe A. Hearst architectural competition for the Greater University, and a number of loaned etchings of architectural subjects. The present membership includes all persons engaged in atelier courses in architecture. Honorary members are: Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst, Prof. John Galen Howard, Mr. Wm. C. Hays, and Mr. Arthur Brown.

Falch, ,08 THE PLAYERS CLUB of the University of California, as it exists to-day, was organized in the fall term of 1 906. This organization is auxiliary to the Mask and Dagger, and is composed of about 1 50 women students. Its object is to give those students who are interested in dramatics an opportunity to display their talent, it being impossible for every student to have some part in the large college plays. The President of the Mask and Dagger, Miss Bess Markle, ' 07, is ex-officio manager of the Players. She appoints all the committees for the selection of the plays, costumes, staging, properties, cast and music. These com- mittees consist of members of the Players Club and the Mask and Dagger. In addition to this, the members of the Mask and Dagger coach the Players. Last term " As You Like It " was very successfully presented, the cast con- sisting of about 25. This term " The Chaperon " is to be presented. The Players is composed of women students and is expressly for the enter- tainment of the women students. THE THOUGHTFUL student of present conditions finds that the problem presented by the socialistic propaganda confronts him on every side. Com- ments on the situation in Russia, discussions of the recent election in Ger- many, tales and denunciations by the young socialistic enthusiasts of our own country keep the problem continually before us. It therefore naturally becomes the desire of the university students of to-day to find out for themselves the meaning of present economic conditions. For this purpose to study the problem and discuss the remedy the Social Progress Club was organized. Originating in campus conversations and idle- morrent chats, it was formally established in 1 904. Since then it has gradually but steadily grown. As a club it is neither socialistic nor opposed to socialism. Its purpose is simply and exclusively to study the problem. At its meetings papers are read by members, followed by general informal discussions. Occasionally public addresses by well-known students of the subject are provided by the club. To these the public is invited. It may be observed in conclusion that the club has achieved a great success. President - M. B. Mitzman, ' 07 Secretary-Treasurer - Alice Joy, ' 07 Executive Committee Peter Graff J. E. Rogers, ' 07 F. A. White, ' 08 ALTHOUGH the Art History Circle has been in existence but little over one year, it has met with great success, and its members are all enthusiastic in its praises. The Circle was organized by a number of the women students for the purpose of making a study of the work of the great artists of the world, especially the old masters. The study of various great paintings from the critical standpoint of art as well as their history and their influence on the world is the subject of discussion at the meetings. These are held at the homes of the different members fortnightly. After the reading of the formal paper concerning the work being studied, there is a general discussion concerning it. At the conclusion of the serious business of the evening a social gathering is held. Thus the members gain not only a better knowl- edge of the great artists, but a more intimate acquaintance with each other. Since the beginning of the organization Mrs. R. C. Holway has been its patroness and a moving spirit in promoting its purposes. Her interest has proved a great factor in its success. OFFICERS.

The freshman was rather hard up for a topic of conversation, but finally he made the following attempt to open one: V. F. " I believe Berkeley is a dry town, isn ' t it ? " Miss B. " Oh, I don ' t know. It rains now and then in the winter. " (V. F. faints) What Next, Jenks? The other afternoon when Jenkins returned after a busy day at the photographer ' s, he proceeded to ring up Miss Biddle with his usual I m-so-damn- busy-please-let-me-alone-air. After obtaining the number, he announced in a business-like way: " We want to be sure to get those class pictures right. Please see to it that the junior girls all wear plain waists. I would greatly prefer it if they would discard peek-a-boos for the present. " Since then Jenks has been universally recognized as the ultimate judge in all matters of social etiquette by the junior class. Oxfordoman Curses.

XXIII BERKELEY, CAL., APRIL 1, 1907. GREAT EXCITEMENT AT THE UNIVERSITY. STUDENTS RIOT ON THE CAMPUS CO-OH. V A. M. Great excitement pre- vails on the campus this morning. Just before recitations began today, V. M. Hollister, a prominent member of the Chi Phi Fraternity, was observed crossing the campus in company with a co-ed. There was considerable doubt expressed as to the sanity of the college man. but when he was seen to be wearing a shirt and white collar, all doubt as to his mental condition vanished. Large crowds of students gathered and discussion was rife as to what had best be done for the welfare of the college. The Chemistry Pond, the coal bins in the Mechanics TUn ffTK-AM buildings and various other cures were suggested. At this point one of the students recognized a heretofore un- known bystander as Gurden Edwards, family editor of the Oxydunt. It seems Edwards was also in disguise, attired as he was in collars and cuffs. At the sight, undergraduates lost control of themselves. Hoarse shoutings filled the air, clods were thrown, Hollister and Edwards, followed by crowds of backers and sur- rounded by yells of " down with the ' 07 dandy, Hooray for Bill, " rushed at each other, attempting to destroy all marks of the laundried handiwork. Students neg- lected their classrooms, professors and (Continued on Page 4.) THE BERKELEY BUMMER Hummer MONDAY, APRIL 1, 1907 WM., also RANDOLPH HURTS, Editor J. D. VAN BECKER, Ass ' t Editor EDITORIAL A PRAISEWORTHY FORESIGHT After the riot at the University this morning the ground about North Hall was coverd with de- bris. An inventory taken by Boomer reporters showed large quantities of corduroy, hair, shirts, buttons and sections of sweater vests, the Psi Upsilon brothers having lost five red ones them- selves. In fact a little of every- thing was found save text books or note books. It is this saving characteristic that the Boomer wishes to commend. The stud- ents show a remarkable foresight at all times in leaving at home or on the shelves in the Co-op, books which might be destroyed. Let the good work go on. Mr. Learnitall, the Boomer detective, has been investigating the cause of this morning ' s outbreak at the University. After a long interview with Dr. Rhein- hardt a solution was reached. It is the belief of the experts that an epidemic of " bugs politicus " has arrived. It will be remembered that Hollister was recently elected to an office in the junior class while Edwards was running for president of the senior class. It is rumored that Jimmie Langhornehas become infected and promises reform should he be offered the position of Class Chaplain or Goat. This peculiar germ or insect causes most wonderful results. The victim becomes addicted to gaudy neckties, big cigars, the glad hand and white collars. Those suffering from this maladay are on view daily in front of the Co-op or at the Blue and Gold office.

From all indications the political siua- tion this year will be a lively one. The Co-op reports that the sale of flicks is enormous and we know that this is the best political indicator. Tarn McArthur says that it is to his greatest sorrow that St. Patricks Day- came on Sunday tin ' s year. But for this fact Tarn says he would have shamed a peacock. Knowing Tarn ' s tastes we are inclined to believe him. A large audience attended regimental parade yesterday. It is whispered about that this sudden popularity is due in a large degree to the deft wielder of the baton, Louis Ghirardelli ' 09. Straighten up " Louie " they ' re all watching you. The campus has been very quiet of late and the cause has been brought to light by the untiring efforts of a Boomer reporter. It was discovered that F. Q.

Ralph Merritt, President of the Asso- ciated Students of the L ' niversity of Cali- fornia was seen about the campus today.

THE BERKELEY BLUSTER GREAT EXCITEMENT AT THE UNIVERSITY (Continued from Pajjc 1.) co-eds remained seated on the window sills or crowded on the roof at North Hall to observe the riots bolow. The University Police were powerless to cope with the emergency and a still alarm was rung in on the University Fire Depart- ment. Unfortunately the hose had been mislaid and the department was unable to respond. As a last resort Captain Nance was appealed to and Company E was ordered to fire a volley at the offenders. Owing to the age of the cart- ridges only one exploded, entering the face of the clock on the Library, a good showing when the greenness of the troops is taken into account. After this out- burst, the students drew apart carrying the wounded to places of safety. Cas- ualties among the undergraduates will be large owing to the firceness of the combat.

And lo it came to pass that in a certain Province of Dramaticus there dwelt a scurvy horde of fawning skunks of the great unwashed tribe of ophomores, who were wont to parade forth under the hirsute leadership of one Benjamin, of the tribe of Moses. 2. And it came to pass that in the seventh month of the first year of the reign of Potentate Merritt that the prophets of the sopohmores spake to their people, saying: Behold, let us array ourselves in outlandship raiment, and crack pre- historic jokes, and edify the public with a burlesque. 3. And lo, the sophomores thought exceed- ing well of the plans of the prophets, and donned their green ephods and purple breeches, and journeyed unto the temple and kow-towed even ; unto Potentate Merritt. 4. And Potentate Merritt spake unto them, scying: Co thou and burn in sense upon the altar of the great king, Benj Ide, of the tribe of Politicus. Such a proposition will I not touch, even with a ten-foot antiseptic, sterilized clothes pole. 5. And the sophomores went even unto California Synagogue and offered sacrifice unto the great king Benj Ide, and to his high priest. Victorious of the tribe of Henderson. And the great king spake through his oracle, Famham, lord high wielder of the stylus, saying: 6. Venly was the last burlesque the rotten- est 1 have ever beheld, and saving only ye follow my precepts and commandment; shall ye your- selves have a chance to scandalize the com- munity. 7. Now harken unto my voice: If there be one among you who hath an undue super - bundance of calorified circumambient exhilerating atmosphere about his person, let him lay his precipitated humor at the feet of a committee which I shall appoint, and the constituancy of the same shall be mostly Samuel, of the tribe of Hume. 8. And upon the sayso of this most humorous board depends whether or no ye shall have your burlesque. 9. And the envoys fell flat and ripped their purple breeches, and tore their hair and murmured: Thy words shall be law. 10. And the scribes among the sophomore class began to toil and sweat. Many scrolls of papyrus did they defile with many pots of ink, and greatly did they seek after the ancient stone joke-tablets of their forefathers. 1 1 . And lo, when the rime came for the judgement of the wise men to be passed, the class had hatched out three oratorios. 12. And two of them were addled and savored strongly of HjS. 13. But the third was sprightly and witty, and lo the title was, The Scandalous Adventures of Ham Sume. 14. Anon there was a great noise and he of the tribe of Hume waxed exceeding wroth, and rose up on his dignity, and cast the envoys from the rear door of the syangogue, crying: 15. What, is the common horde to make a jest of me, the University pride? Are my goings out and comings in to be held up to the college public for ridicule? Truly the University would be afflicted with great sickness should it study my life too deeply. Sit upon it! 16. And the envoys sat upon it. 17. And he of the tribe of Hume arose and made song unto Israel, spying: Ha! Ha! Verily I have squelched the budding humorist. 18. Ho! Ho! The sophic burlesque have I consigned to eternal fire. 19. And then there was peace in the Pro- vince of Dramaticus. Senior Control, THE freshmen held a meeting so ' s to organize their class ; The sophomores could not permit a chance like this to pass, And in a yelling unit they descended on the gym. They raised a mighty rough-house, but they couldn ' t get within. ' Twas then that one might see control of various kinds, For certain seniors thought that talk would calm excited minds. So Prexy Merritt ' gan to speak, but some one grabbed his knee, And knocked him backwards down the steps (in number 23). Another thought that he would swiftly bring the crowd to calm, By biting large and juicy chunks from a sophomore ' s right arm ; Another thought that water ' d cool, judiciously applied, But after several buckets-full, he found his views belied. In time both classes weary grew, since neither side could win, ' Till only a couple of dozen men were left around the gym; Then the seniors rose in their majesty and descended on these few, And ended thus the rough-house, as good seniors ought to do. MORAL. This year we watched with wonder this upper class control, And we know that it is worthless unless you ' re in it heart and soul. So all go in together, this hot air is hardly new, And use concerted action, or the joke ' 11 be on you. The Fall of Many a College Man. College Mother Goose For Good Little Boys and Co-eds.

He paid me an awful nice compliment. He said, " Say it ' s a shame the music stopped so soon, you know I ' ve enjoyed this dance more than anything this evening. " I remember his exact words. The other boys were awfully nice too, Jim Burke was just too sweet. Of course I ' ve heard he is going to run for A. S. U. C. Prex but I ' m sure that has nothing to do with it. He was so sincere.
