Tis a sight well worth more than a glance. The sparkling bay stretches out straight before us, cutting us off from the dimly felt confusion of the hazy city beyond, curving slightly at each side till it meets the curve of the sloping hills, and together they enclose the long, narrow strip of land at our feet. Closer up to the foot of the hills lies the campus of our University, green, shady, tranquil, like some mystical grove of olden times with its sacred temples, now white, now dull red, now grayish green, as the trees about them. Straight below us it lies, so near that we strain our ears unconsciously to catch some sound of life. And soon it floats up to us, the slow, musical strokes of the campus clock, faint, yet distinct and clear. A strangely alluring spot, and almost without thinking we begin to descend the hill along the steep, broken path. At the foot of the slope we stop suddenly. Before us is a thick grove of trees, the rough trunks of the cypress standing next to the smooth-barked eucalyptus, and nothing beyond but trees and again trees, lining the gentle slope. Bewil- dered, we follow the faint path which winds in and out among the trunks. The path breaks off abruptly at the entrance to the Greek Theater, unnoticed, until we are right upon it, so much does it seem a part of the grove itself. From the stage we glance up along its tiers of stone seats which imperceptibly lead the eye higher and higher, up to the very top, 10 and then higher still to the wall of encircling eucalyptus trees, standing motionless, as though they were one with the great silent stone. From here straight, wide paths radiate and lead down the slope. We glance reluctantly back as we go past the Chemistry Building, catch a glimpse of the Mechanics Building to our right and East Hall and the rounded Library straight ahead. Very learned they all look, perfectly proper, and hopelessly conventional. Was it only the entrance then which charmed and mystified? Then we turn to our left. A foaming creek, deep down at the bottom of a sudden slope, half choked with thick, low bushes and long, slender saplings, here and there a twisted, queer-shaped oak drooping far over the wet stones. Now and then a rough-hewn bridge is swung across and at every step we catch a glimpse of Senior Hall, its log walls blending completely with the gray trunks of the surrounding trees, and beyond it rise the walls of the Faculty Club, seeming ever to lie in a cool, green shadow. Dream as we may of the time when the Greater University will be a thing realized and the old buildings a memory of the past, still the eyes of every student from the oldest alumnus to the newest Freshman turn gladly toward old North Hall. Hopelessly battered, faded, tottering, " it is rendered doubly pitiful and doubly dear to us by the sight of the huge foundation of the new Library at its side, already in its very beginnings giv- ing the perfect assurance of the splen- dor of its final form, already by its very proximity menacing the existence of the old veteran. The Old and the New nowhere else does the change confront us with such vividness. u We pass more slowly up the worn steps. Somewhere on the second floor, we pause at one of the narrow windows. For a moment we hold our breath. From no other point do we get such a view of the Mining Building. The slender trees half hide, half reveal the snowy walls, and above them the dull red roof rises clear-cut and firm against the grove beyond a faultless gem in a perfect setting. Down the long, sunny path we go now, past California Hall, solid and massive in its outline, down past the grassy baseball field, across the rushing creek, and then out under the gnarled oaks. Once more cross the creek, and we are at the gate of the western entrance, beyond which stretches the paved street of our city. Here we pause for our last look at the campus. Silent and, calm as when first it greeted us, so now it smiles its sunny farewell. The hills far before us, the noise of the city at our back, and between them our tranquil University, combining the freedom, the freshness, the beauty of those hills with the city ' s untiring energy. Calm and peaceful and seemingly sleeping, yet somehow we feel beneath this tranquility a might which is ever pressing onward and the pulse of a great and an unending life. College Traditions By J. W. Bingaman, ' 04 S CALIFORNIA losing all her traditions or has college spirit taken a turn in another direction toward a real college spirit, instead of class spirit as of old? We daily hear both undergraduates and old alumni saying that life at California is becoming tame, unvaried, and monotonous. Is this charge not uncomfortably near the truth? Undergraduates will now gather around an old alumnus and listen for hours to tales of college life in his day. Will we be able to hold the future genera- tions in that way? If we shall, it seems that it will have to be with much aid from hearsay and imagination. Perhaps it may be that we have grown from a country University to one where learning is the only motive, while tricks and frolicking are left to the high schools, and, like Harvard, are fast reaching a point where we shall have no traditions. It may be that this change is for the general good, yet we still cling with pleasure to thoughts of what we are pleased to call the old days. The graduate of not many years ago can remember when the college year at California was replete with a host of traditions when the Freshman furnished most of the fun, and, call it hazing or what you will, the Fresh- man seemed to come out of it all a better man. Freshmen, then, regis- tered the same day or later than upper class men, so the old students were always on hand to assist in the first steps of Freshie matriculation in college ways. The verdant specimen from the country, armed with loads of advice, and the doubly verdant one from the city, confident of his own ability and cleverness, side by side, marched up and down the campus, for hours at a time, putting their broomstick muskets through such evolutions as the Guard Manual never knew. After this, they would adjourn to the Occident office, to be measured for a uniform and perhaps even vaccinated. Others, equally ambitious, would be trying out for advanced standing in argumentation under the windows of Old North Hall, until their ardor, dampened by water from above, would compel them to adjourn to the flag pole, which had no windows, where, their oration finished, all would be fittingly concluded with final prayer. Still others would be testing their musical qualification for the band, or measur- ing how far their lungs could throw the words " ma, ma. " Maybe some would be taking examinations, while others were busily engaged in hunting up board at some exclusive fraternity house, or better sorority, or perhaps even testing the doubtful validity of free meal tickets on the Dining Association. Then Freshman line-up for the first drill took them one 14 step further in college tradition, and perhaps a month later some favored few would join the Axe Club or XKII. By this time the Freshman had perhaps worn off some of his high school polish, had gotten somewhat wiser, and a little better acquainted, so was ready to take up the inevitable struggle with the Sophomore, who, having been taught his lesson the year before, was more than willing to see that the babies were properly trained. Class spirit was always a continuous feud, ready to break out at every opportunity. The first clash usually came at the Freshman organization meeting and election, where the North Hall and Gym hoses, phosphorus, hydrogen sulphide, and ballot-box stealing were always a part of the programme. Next, the first real battle, the backstop rush, brought the two classes together for a first test of strength. Victory meant prestige to the winner which might last through the year, but victory here too often depended on chance the town crowd gathered to see the fun or the strength of the co-ed knife, which could never be counted upon, but which often turned the tide of battle. But here, for the first time, the Freshman was given a chance to prove his real mettle, where odds were even, instead of tamely submitting to a one-sided ordeal. Whatever might have been the newspaper report of the " riot, " he came out of it with a spirit and determination, perhaps even courage, that he did not possess before, for nothing could have been more nerve-racking than the long wait on the football field, followed at last by the blood-curdling rush of the Sophomores down the hill from North Hall. Next came Charter Hill, March 23. This was a truer test, as the co-ed strength was absent and the Freshmen knew each other much better, so assisted fewer Sophomores to tie up unknown Freshmen. The Juniors drilled and kept up the courage of the Freshies during their long wait on the cold and frosty hill for the Sophs, who, with the Seniors, were perhaps feasting and merry-making at a comfortably arranged smoker in some hall down town. Finally, about 4 or 5 a. m., when the Sophs were satisfied that a good share of their rivals had frozen out or gone home j with heart failure, they would mount the hill for the fiercest and best rush of the year. To the victor belonged the hill, which was attested by his class numbers, laid in paper and lime, which tradition decreed should not be disturbed by the vanquished. The big " C, " emblem of college spirit, now lies a fitting monument on the deathbed of this rush, the generator of fiercest class spirit. The last class rivalry of the year was attested by the Bourdon, in which Bourdon, Freshie Algebra, and Minto, Freshie English, having been successfully digested by the unwilling babies, were consigned to the realms of lost souls. The coffin was the center of the interclass struggle. It was prepared days beforehand and, if not captured in the meantime, was, is on the night selected, escorted by a procession of priests and devils, hauled to the baseball field in an improvised hearse made out of the strongest baggage wagon and armored with barbed wire. The funeral cortege made its way over roads strewn with tacks, through entrances closed with barbed wire over the ranks of resisting Sophomores, and amid showers of eggs, good and bad, saved up for the occasion for weeks beforehand. If it arrived safely, Minto and Bourdon went to their last rest on the funeral pyre amid appropriate ceremonies by the Damnator, while the Laudator sang praises of the Freshmen and the Vituperator heaped obloquy on the Sophs and Faculty. Besides these set clashes, class rivalry was manifested by the inju- dicious use of mice, flour, limburger cheese, and the putting out of lights at the Freshman Glee and Sophomore Hop. The upper classes usually contented themselves with organizing and directing the Freshman- Sophomore rivalry. Most all this class tradition has been superseded by general college customs. We still have our four class dances, but they now differ little except in the personnel of the managing committees. Cjustom has said that only Juniors and Seniors may wear corduroys and that the Freshman must wear a cap and beware of sitting on North Hall steps or suffer the penalty of the Chemistry Pond. The Juniors and Seniors still wear their plugs, but plug kicking and Sophomore hats seem to be fast-fading tradi- tions, while the Soph cane is no more the day has gone when the whole Sophomore class could be raised because a Freshie took a cane and a co-ed to church on Sunday. Senior singing and dear old North Hall steps are still with us, but they, too, are likely to pass. The growth of the University activity at the expense of the class activity is well illustrated by the fact that real spirit is now, save at inter- collegiate contests, almost entirely confined to the rallies, say this year almost to the smoker rally, as the others lean too much to the spectacular and are coming too much to be only amusement for the Berkeley and college public. Labor Day alone, of all manufactured traditions, seems to have become popular. On the 29th of February the whole college turns out to do some appointed work to improve the campus. The co-eds, too, assist by serving a bean banquet at noon on the basketball court. We had almost forgotten, since the backstop rush had died, that the co-eds had any part in college tradition, but it is rumored we can not speak from authority, as negatives were a failure that Hearst Hall is often the scene of Dove Dances and Gym Jinks where California spirit may be seen in strange uniform and antics unhampered by the unhallowed presence of curious man. The Prytanean Fete and Woman ' s Day, February 22, with its quaint Colonial Ball, are not so exclusive. 16 Politics: An Activity By Carl Whitmore, ' 08 OMETIMES people unfamiliar with college life are liable to regard the University as an institution similar in man- agement and discipline to a high school. That the Uni- versity is a small world in itself, full of action, deeds, and possibilities beyond the realm of mere book-learning, is a fact overlooked by many. Actual participation in our current college activities requires much of a student ' s time, the management of such affairs even more. Athletics, student publications, debating societies, class officers, and the control of the student body vie with one another in importance. As a base upon which these various factors rotate we find politics. As long as human nature remains unchanged, so long will politics grow and thrive. Petty jealousies, the desire for power, and an ocasional wish to be of some service to the University mingle in greater or less proportion throughout all of our polit- ical campaigns. North Hall, the battle-scarred veteran of many an election, is the Mecca towards which the budding politicians and office- seekers gravitate. Here the student leaders expound their principles, converse with their cohorts, buttonhole the doubtful voters, and knock the opposition. Upon election day the vicinity of the historic pile seems surcharged with an undercurrent of excitement. From out the Occident or Blue and Gold offices come students in haste with their frequently consulted slips of paper whereon are written many names. Within the offices busy men are arranging the card index, filing away the " sure things, " and making up a list of " reprobates. " Nearly always the candidates themselves may be found in the library. They are easily recognizable by the cordiality of their handshake, the immaculateness of their dress, and an oppressive attempt to appear at ease. The more important elections, such as the president of the Associated Students, Blue and Gold editor, and Senior and Junior class officers, are, of course, productive of the greatest strife and the more intense feeling. Large crowds await the final count, some to join in the happy congratula- tions and the consequent jollification, others to retire to some sequestered nook and there repeat the time-worn phrase, " the best man does not always win. " President Wheeler Eugene R. Hallett, ' 05 HE President of this University is the master builder. He has taken the materials which lay at his hands and has reared a magnificent structure. He has builded the Greater University. The first buildings of the new era are his, for it was the magnetism of his ambition for the University of California which attracted the funds which made the Hearst Mining Building and California Hall possible. The Faculty of the new era is his, for he had the courage to weed out the useless members in order that to the good that were left might come the men of mark and genius who have since enlisted under his banner of service in the University. It has been the personality of President Wheeler more than ' the prestige of the University of California which has brought some of the most beloved of our Faculty men to the University. It has been the personality of President Wheeler which has kept other men of our Faculty here when tempting offers have come from older and better known universities. So the Faculty, too, is his; but the greatest of his achievements has been the winning of the student body. For, indeed, here was a task. A student body of Western men, loyal to the traditions of the past, good or bad, an Alumni hostile to any change, and a State that allows its press to attack its great men simply because they are great enough to attract the confidence and friendship of other great men, presented conditions which would have dismayed a man of less courage, yet today the student body love and revere their President, the Alumni respect him, and the decent newspapers of the State admire and uphold him. The corrupt press of the State hate him, and by the expres- sion of their hate do honor to him. To achieve the great results which he has accomplished took courage, tenacity and perseverance, ambition, loyalty and devotion, genius, righteousness, and Godliness. It has been these traits embodied in one man that has realized the dream of the Greater University of California. Today the student body is the beating, pulsating heart of the whole University, sending the invigorating strength of a unified University spirit wherever the sons and daughters of Cali- fornia go. We respect him for what he has done and we love him for what he is. After courage, I should say his predominant trait is sympathy a President Wheeler sympathy broad enough to take in at one moment the troubles of Jimmy Potatoes and at the next a problem of state submitted to him by the repre- sentative of the Government of one of our Oriental neighbors. Thought- ful, courteous, and kind, he fulfills all that tradition requires of a University President. But, after all, we like him most because he can fight, because he will fight, and because he does fight. He makes just enough mistakes of judgment to make him akin to the rest of us, but his heart is always right. He is today one of the strongest fighting forces in the State. Wherever his aid is enlisted in a cause, whether in municipal, county, State, or national affairs, the people have a champion who is both feared and respected by the corrupt influences, no matter how strongly they may be entrenched. The people also have in him a champion whose influence and whose prestige can bring and will bring more to the State of California of benefit to the people than any public man holding office in California today, for he has the interests of his community, county, State, and country at heart. He has ideas and courage to fight for them. Here ' s strength to his arm, and may God in His wisdom leave him with us until his great work is done. 20 Hearst Gifts A Brief Account of the Hearst Gifts to the University of California By President " Wheeler IRST of the Hearst gifts recorded are the scholarships established in September, 1891, and those of April, 1892. To these eight were added four more in the year 1895. One of Mrs. Hearst ' s greatest gifts to the University, the plans for the Greater University, was offici ally begun in October, 1896, with Mrs. Hearst ' s letter to the Regents. Mrs. Hearst ' s idea may best be seen by a quotation of her own words in this letter: " My son and I have desired to give some suitable memorial which shall testify to Mr. Hearst ' s love for and interest in this State, and, after having carefully considered the matter, we feel that the best memorial would be one which would promote the higher education of its people. And I must confess that the absence of a suitable plan for the University buildings has seemed an obstacle in the way of carrying out some ideas which we have cherished. " The Regents of the University, with grateful appreciation of her kindness and forethought, accepted the generous offer of Mrs. Hearst, and the plan for the world-wide competition of architects was put into execution. The final choice was made in August, 1899, of the Bernard plans, which in their modified form are being worked upon for the Greater University. Into this pr oject of the plans for the Greater University Mrs. Hearst has put a sum of money in excess of $160,000, and the great work is still being carried on. Since 1897 but few depart- ments of the University have not felt Mrs. Hearst ' s help and sympathy. The departments of Histology, Bacteriology, Pathology, Mining, and Anthropology are but a few of those that have received material assistance. Hearst Hall was constructed by Mrs. Hearst for the use of the women students of the University for social purposes and as a gymnasium. The cost of the entire gift was about $50,000. Mrs. Hearst ' s interest in the women of the University has been a most powerful factor for good. Not alone has she equipped clubhouses for the women students and given large sums to the Hearst Domestic Industries, but her generosity has extended to the employment of a special physician for the women of the 21 University and for the investigation of matters concerning the life and work of women students in other universities. Mrs. Hearst ' s interest in the Archaeological Museum and its work has been strong. Large sums have been expended on excavations in Egypt, South America, and Mexico, as well as upon lectures, the equipment of the museum, and the publication of reports. During all this time Mrs. Hearst ' s interest in the scholarships was not lessened, but rather increased. Her interest was not alone in the women of the University, for she has supplied prizes for literary competitions, the stand of colors now used by the University Cadets was a gift from her, and the largest single con- tribution to the building of Senior Hall was from the generosity of Mrs. Hearst. The Hearst Memorial Mining Building has been finished and equipped at a cost of about three-quarters of a million of dollars. It is second to no mining school in this country in beauty and equipment. Mrs. Hearst ' s gifts have not alone been confined to museums and scholar- ships and buildings, but she has constantly worked for the broadening of University life for California. She provided for many lectures and recitals by musicians of note, as well as for the publication of books and the purchase of historical works of art. The Hearst interest in the Lick Observatory has always been keen. From time to time both Mrs. Hearst and her son have given large sums for the development of some particular branch in which they were interested. The departments of Botany and Zoology have not been strangers to her kindness. Mrs. Hearst ' s gifts to the University have been constant and in such countless ways has her sympathy and friendship for the University been shown that a complete account of her assistance and aid is impossible, nor is it possible to figure the benefits which Mrs. Hearst has been to the University in dollars and cents, for, great though they may be, her inspiring friendship and help at all times has been invaluable. William Randolph Hearst has been a party to many of his mother ' s generous gifts, and has also himself established traveling fellowships in geography, given collections of Greek and Egyptian antiquities, and been a benefactor of the Lick Observatory. The best known of Mr. Hearst ' s single gifts is the Greek Theater, which was erected by him at a cost of about $50,000. This theater, the greatest of its kind in the world, and with a seating capacity of over 8000 persons, has long since become the center of the dramatic and musical life about the Bay of San Francisco. The Hearst Memorial Mining Building By Professor S. B. Christy, Dean of the College of Mining S A HOME for its Department of Mining and Metallurgy, the University possesses in the Hearst Memorial Mining Building without doubt the finest structure in the world devoted to this purpose. Since it covers nearly an acre of ground, its four stories, including floors, walls, and light wells, include nearly four acres, although the actual floor span is some- what less. The plan of the building is very nearly that of a hollow square, with a Greek cross in the center, thus leaving four interior courts or light wells. The first floor is a high and well-lighted basement, which is entered by a tunnel from the west, through which a heavy truck may be driven with supplies directly to the storage and supply rooms. The basement contains steam heating and ventilating appliances, and will contain a 15-horse-power electrically driven air compressor and a 100-horse-power compound duplex steam driven air compressor. Both of these machines contain the Cincinnati gear and are the gift of the Laidlaw- Dunn-Gordon Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. From these machines com- pressed air will be delivered to all the working rooms of the building. On this floor also are two large storerooms, one for chemical and assaying supplies and the other for mining machinery. Each of these storerooms is connected with an electric eleva tor by which supplies are distributed to local supply points connected with each laboratory. On this floor also are placed separate suites devoted to lockers, lavatories, and shower baths for Junior and Senior students. There are also dwelling rooms for the janitor and caretaker. In the heart of the building on this floor is the Mining Laboratory proper, which reaches sixty-four feet from the ground floor to the roof of the building, and is nearly fifty feet wide by one hundred and twenty feet long. This room is provided with one large electric elevator, capable of handling five tons, commanding each floor of the building. The Mining Laboratory will be covered for its entire length by a traveling crane, capable of handling a load of five tons. On the right and left of this room are wings, like the arms of a Roman cross. In the wing on the right are the forge rooms for working iron and steel. The left wing is devoted to metal and woodworking shops. All these shops serve not only for the instruction of students, but are also used to do the equipment, repair, and experimental work of the department. n In the Mining Laboratory will be illustrated the methods of rock drilling by single and double hand and by machine drills of every type, together with experimental work in prospecting with diamond and artesian drills, and also some types of hoisting and ventilating machines. The entrance to the second or main floor is in the center of the south facade of the building. It opens into the Memorial Vestibule and Museum of Mining and Metallurgy. This lofty room measures 40x88 feet and rises through three stories over fifty feet. Surrounding it are balconies, at the level of the third and fourth floors. This museum is intended to illustrate all phases of the mining and metallurgic art, and will contain plans and models of mines, mining and metallurgic machinery, and collections illustrating the various stages of metallurgical processes from the raw material to the finished product. From the right and left of the museum open up on the second and third floors three large lecture rooms and a number of offices, studies, and reading rooms. The assaying laboratory opens out from the right of the museum, forming the east wing of the building, and contains six large rooms. In the left or west wing is a similar suite of rooms to ' be devoted to large scale work in chlorination, the amalgamation of silver ores, hypo- sulphite lixiviation, and cyanide work. In the rear of the building are, on the right, joining the assaying laboratory, a large laboratory which will be devoted to roasting and smelt- ing furnaces of different types, and in the center a rectangular tower about fifty feet square, extending up through three stories, which is devoted to dry crushing and sampling machinery. On the left is a large room devoted to the stamp milling of gold and silver ores. On the third floor, besides the offices and lecture rooms already mentioned, there is in the right, or east wing, a suite of rooms devoted to advanced work in metallurgy ; and in the left, or west wing, a similar suite of rooms devoted to research work. The fourth floor will contain a steel stack room for a library of mining and metallurgy, a large reading room in the top gallery of the museum, and two suites of five rooms each, lighted from above, to serve as drafting, photographic, and blue print rooms. The building has already cost over six hundred thousand dollars, and with its present equipment represents an outlay of fully seven hundred thousand dollars. The building will prove a lasting monument not only to Senator Hearst, but to the gentle lady whose mind conceived this noble gift. It is to be sincerely hoped that the new buildings of the Greater University may in future take the permanent rather than the temporary form, and that the enduring usefulness of this generous gift may serve as an example to the many rich men who have made their fortunes in California. 24 Albert Bonnheim LBERT BONNHEIM is known throughout California not more for his success as a merchant than for the great humanitarian work in which he has constantly been engaged since he came to the State in 1876. He has always found time aside from his duties as vice-president of the great retail mercantile firm of Weinstock, Lubin Co. to devote to movements for the betterment of his fellow man. His time, his energy, and his fortune have ever been at the service of the cause of humanity. The promotion of higher education, the cultivation of widely diffused good taste in art and literature, and the uplifting of the fallen and the unfortunate have been Mr. Bonnheim ' s life work as much as attention to his business. Chief among his contributions to the cause of education stands the Joseph Bonnheim Memorial Fund, named in memory of his son. It now supports fifteen students at the University. In addition to this he main- tains scholarships at Stanford and Cornell and a fellowship at Oxford and the University of Paris, respectively. The Bonnheim prize, competed for annually at the University, con- sists of $150 given to that student whose essay on an assigned ethical topic is adjudged most meritorious, and $100 given to the student whose public oral discussion of the same subject is adjudged most merito- rious. To enumerate all of the other humanitarian enterprises and organ- izations with which Mr. Bonnheim is associated is beyond the scope of this article, but among them may be mentioned the American Red Cross Association, of which he is treasurer at Sacramento ; the Amer- ican Free Art League, the National Commission of Industrial Educa- tion, National Society for the Pro- 25 Albert Bonnhei motion of Ethical Culture, and the Sierra Club. Besides these, he is president of the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, adviser to the Juvenile Court at Sacramento, and a member of the boards of directors of many benevolent organizations. For many years Mr. Bonnheim ' s attention has been directed to the appalling poverty, misery, and degradation of the people of the slums in our great cities. Applying practical business principles to the problem of solving the question of relief for the submerged tenth, he has worked out a plan which in its function is to be the culmination of his philanthropic works. The plan is to establish a model colony in California. Ten thou- sand acres of arable land are to be secured and then peopled with inhabitants gathered from the slums of great cities. Ambition to be self- supporting and useful will be fostered in the colonists and every incentive offered them to become owners of homesteads, with an appreciation of the worth of right living and of their duties to themselves and society. Details of the plan have been worked out with infinite care. The difficulties and disasters which have met such efforts in the past have been frankly met and as adequately provided for in a way which clearly shows the secret of Mr. Bonnheim ' s success as a man of business and of large affairs. Wherever submitted, the project has met with well-deserved encouragement and support. With a life-time of work in the interests of his fellow man already accomplished and the prospect of success in years to come in his greatest humanitarian enterprise, Mr. Bonnheim stands a living contradiction to those who claim that success in business must needs make of a man a mere money-making machine. Such lives as his give an example of the true relation of the successful man in business to social duties. For his interest in the University and his steady regard for the welfare of its students Mr. Bonnheim has been made a member of the Order of the Golden Bear. This is but one slight attestation of the general regard in which he is held, not only in university circles, but throughout the State. 26 College gf Social Sciences THE College of Social Sciences has the largest enrollment of any Col- lege in the University, there being a registration of one thousand and thirty-nine, an increase of forty-four over last year. Its curriculum follows the more modern lines of liberal education, including language, literature, history, and political science. It diverges from that of Letters, in that it omits Greek and does not insist upon Latin if a reasonable substitute is furnished. It leads to the degree of Bachelor of Letters. College f Commerce THE College of Commerce, which is the youngest of the academic col- leges at Berkeley, was founded in 1898, and since that time has grown so rapidly that it now has a larger enrollment than several of the much older colleges. The college has its headquarters in California Hall, and in its curriculum offers the student a broad field of investigation in the various branches of economics. The graduates of Commerce receive the degree of B. S. and many of them immediately step into responsible posi- tions in the business world. Enrollment 1907 : Men, 164 ; women, 2. Total, 166. College sf Letters THE College of Letters provides for the so-called classical course of the University and its curriculum is the only one which prescribes a course in Greek and Latin. It is the oldest College in the University and is the nucleus around which all the other Colleges have been built. The attendance in the College of Letters during the past year has been considerably less than previously, due to the increased qualifications demanded for teachers ' certificates among the women and the increased popularity of the Engineering Colleges among the men, the attendance for this year being one hundred and twenty-six, a decrease of twenty-three. T College gf Natural Sciences THE College of Natural Sciences was established in 1892. Its curricu- lum embraces the broad field of general science, together with the languages and arts necessary to the work of the student and investigator. It insures a good general preparation both for those who seek liberal culture and those who wish to enter upon the systematic study of a specialty. The undergraduate work in this college leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 113; women, 91. Total, 204. College gf Chemistry " THE College of Chemistry was organized in 1872, shortly after the establishment of the College of Agriculture and the three engineer- ing colleges. Since the establishment of the College of Natural Sciences the technical aspect of the subject has been rapidly developed in line with the work of the engineering colleges. The object of the department is to graduate students who can attack the problems of chemical technology and successfully solve them. Like the two other scientific colleges, this one also gives the degree of Bachelor of Sciences. Enrollment in 1907: Men, 32; women, 4. Total, 36. College gf Agriculture ONE of the first colleges established was that of Agriculture. It was a department of California College, from which the present Univer- sity sprung. Students in the Agricultural course must spend their first two years laying the foundation in general sciences. They then choose the special work which they wish to follow. There is such a wide range of professional occupations opened up by this course that the demand for men thus trained exceeds the supply. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 114; women, 4. Total, 118. College sf cTVlining THE College of Mining, like that of Mechanics, was organized as a separate college with its own dean in 1893. A new era in the history of this college began with the formal dedication of the Hearst Memo- rial Mining Building on September the twenty-third, 1907, and now the University of California can pride itself upon what is, without question, the best equipped College of Mining in the world. The work of this college is held up to the highest standard of efficiency, and many of the foremost mining engineers of the country are found among its alumni. Enrollment in 1907: Men, 259; women, 0. Total, 259. College f Civil Engineering THE College of Civil Engineering, the third and last of the Engineer- ing Colleges, also dates from the reorganization in 1893. Since the completion of the Hearst Mining Building the old Mining Building has been given over entirely to the work of the Civil Engineering Department, thus supplying a long felt need. This college, which fits the student for either field engineering or civil engineering construction, like the Colleges of Mechanics and Mining, confers the degree of B. S. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 242 ; women, 0. Total, 242. College f cTVlechanics THE College of Mechanics, as a distinct college, dates from the reor- ganization of the Academic Colleges at Berkeley in 1893, and one year later, in 1894, the present Mechanics Building was occupied. Since that time the work in both Electrical and Steam Engineering has been upon a firm basis and the student who has finished the four-year course in this college and received his B. S. is well qualified to enter life ' s competition in his line of work. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 257 ; women, 0. Total, 257. 30 - - ' - = Hastings College gf Law THE Hastings College of Law was established in 1878 by Judge S. C. Hastings. It formerly occupied buildings on the Sutro tract which were destroyed by the earthquake and fire of April 18, 1906, and has since been located at the Cooper Medical College. The aim of the Col- lege is to prepare men for practical legal work in the courts, special training being given in the argument of cases and in the details of defense and offense in forensic conflict. The attendance shows an increase of twenty- five over that of last year. College sf Pharmacy LTHOUGH started in 1872 by a society of pharmacists and drug- gists of the State, the California College of Pharmacy soon became a department of the University. It has practically controlled its own affairs and has had no financial aid from the University except that since the erection of the Affiliated Colleges this department has been located in one of these buildings. The degree of Graduate in Pharmacy is conferred upon those students who complete the course of study satis- factorily, and who have had four years ' experience in a pharmacy where prescriptions are compounded. Enrollment in 1907: Men, 38; women, 3. Total, 41. College f Medicine THE present Medical Department is the result of the affiliation of the Toland Medical College with the University. This was brought about in 1873 when the trustees of the Toland Medical College deeded their property to California. In 1899 the Medical Department moved to the new buildings of the Affiliated Colleges. Two years of the four-year course is now spent at Berkeley. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 30; women, 8. Total, 38. College f Dentistry THE Dental Department of the University of California, organized in 1881, was moved in 1900 to one of the buildings provided by the State for the Professional Colleges located on the heights south of Golden Gate Park. In connection with the College is a clinic where the public are experimented upon free of charge, thus providing practical experience for the student. The course covers a period of three years and leads to the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery. Enrollment in 1907 : Men, 69 ; women, 0. Total, 69. California School f Design THE California School of Design, founded by the San Francisco Art Association in 1874, was affiliated in 1893 with the University of California. The original building, together with a large part of the equip- ment, was destroyed in the great fire of April 18, 1906, and the school was temporarily discontinued. However, during 1907 a new though less pretentious building was erected on the old site on California street, near the Fairmont Hotel, and in August last the school which has meant so much to the lovers of art in the Golden State again opened its doors. Enrollment, 1907: Men, 38; women, 31. Total, 69. Lick Observatory THE Lick Astronomical Department was founded in 1875 through the generosity of James Lick, who gave $700,000 for the purpose of founding an astronomical observatory. Mr. Lick chose Mt. Hamilton as the site and Congress gave the necessary land grants. All undergraduate instruction is carried on in Berkeley, while instruction to graduates, who are fitted to act as assistants, is offered at Mt. Hamilton. As an instance of efficient and progressive work of this department, it is sufficient to say that professors and assistants from the University and astronomers from Lick Observatory sailed November 22, 1907, for the South Seas to observe the total eclipse of the sun which was visible there January 3. This expe- dition was thoroughly successful, and much credit is due them. 32 Regents of the University " Regents Ex-Officio His Excellency James Norris Gillett Sacramento Governor of California His Honor Warren R.

THE University Farm at Davis, Yolo County, was opened to public uses by the holding of a State Farmers ' Institute on October 29 to 31, 1907. The three days ' sessions were attended by nearly five hundred people, coming from widely separated parts of the State and constituting a thoroughly representative body of California agriculturists. The prin- cipal addresses on the part of the University were made by President Wheeler, and there were ten other speakers, representing various phases of the agricultural work of the University. Besides these, sixteen non- University speakers made formal addresses upon important interests of the State educational, agricultural, horticultural, industrial, etc. Owing to conditions unfavorable for building during the summer of 1907, it was not possible to secure the structures needed for beginning agricultural school work, and the courses planned for last autumn were postponed until the present year. Many minor improvements, extension of irrigation system, repairs of old buildings, fences, etc., were, however, secured and profitable crops were grown. At this time the University Farm is a scene of notable constructional activity. Water supply and distribution, sewage disposal, dairy barns, seed houses, mechanical shops, etc., are all going forward at a rapid rate. A commodious dormitory and farm commons are planned for building during the coming summer. Orchard and vineyard planting for instructional purposes has been made. Equipment in live stock, machinery, and apparatus is proceeding, and it is planned to begin regular courses of instruction and short special courses also during the coming autumn. On January 1, 1908, Doctor Leroy Anderson, who retired from University service in 1902 to develop sec- ondary agricultural instruction at the California Polytechnic School at San Luis Obispo, resumed his connection with the University as Professor of Agricultural Practice and Superintendent of University Farm Schools. It will devolve upon Doctor Anderson to plan the work at Davis. 38 The Agricultural Experiment Station ON THE north bank of Strawberry Creek stands a wooden building, which, because of its many windows, presents a very open face to those who pass along the crest of the adjacent terrace. Nearly every one gazes into the depths of the building as he passes along and marks the host of offices and laboratories, in all of which men and women are sitting intent or hurrying about. The sight of it is as attractive as is that of the " observation hive " arranged to show the " busy bee " at the county fair. This building, with its windows and offices and bustle, is a place where things are done for the farmers of California. One who has a fuller knowledge of academic affairs may add : " These things are the chief points of contact between University research and industry; they constitute the greatest forms of applied science and the appreciation of the University ' s achievements; therein lies the foundation of the high esteem and generous support which the people cherish and bestow upon the University of California. " It is fitting that more definite knowledge should prevail. Through its Agricultural Experiment Station, the University of Cali- fornia maintained research in things agricultural for a decade before the United States provided for similar undertakings in all States and Terri- tories, and in fact was the primary factor in laying the foundation on which the admirable federal system was later erected. From its vary beginning the agricultural work of the University has been housed in inferior buildings. At first this was due to lack of appre- ciation, later to excess of it. For just as soon as the farmers of California began to unload their obscure troubles upon the Experiment Station the necessity for better equipment in investigators, apparatus, and stations required so much money that funds for adequate buildings were not avail- 39 able. The result is that the department is greater than the provision for its operation, and further development demands better housing at Berkeley. The busy building at the University is merely the focus of State-wide efforts. The station employs a staff of thirty-seven men and women, uses about one thousand acres of its own land in parcels throughout the State, and is spen ding upwards of $70,000 per year, derived from federal, State, and general University funds, in experiment, research, and publication, apart from the large expenditure for the instructional work of the College of Agriculture. It should be understood that this expenditure is distinctly separate from the instructional work fund of the College, which is otherwise pro- vided even in larger amount and the future greatness ' of which is only beginning to be discerned. It is essential that the people of California should consider the present condition of agriculture in the University and provide for its improvement, as the devotion of those engaged in the service and the opportunity at hand will tend to produce wonderful results. The State has been generous toward the agricultural ' work in the University, but it should not be forgotten that the people of the State are continually laying greater burdens upon the institution. At present the support is glaringly inadequate to these burdens, and it is imperative that the State look more deeply into the present condition of the station and its possibility of achieving the greater agricultural industry of California. 40 University " Extension THE year 1907-08 has been on the whole a successful year for the Department of University Extension, in spite of a considerable reduction in the number of regular centers established. This reduction was due to the fact that Professor H. Morse Stephens, the Director of the Department of University Extension, was forced, on account of stress of work in and about the University, to limit the number of his University Extension lecture courses to three. And as the department possessed only one regular staff lecturer, Mr. Frederick Mortimer Clapp, and one University lecturer, Mr. Don E. Smith, the territory covered was neces- sarily smaller than in previous years. With these facts taken into consid- eration, the total of eleven centers founded is not altogether a discredit- able showing. As in previous years since its foundation in 1902, the department fol- lowed out its established policy of organizing courses of twelve lectures with classes for study in various centers throughout the State, leaving the control and selection of the courses to committees of the local centers. Traveling libraries, printed syllabuses, and other literature needed, and when necessary stereopticon lanterns and slides, were furnished to the centers without additional cost. University credit after regular examina- tion was given for work done in the University Extension classes. Although practically unknown to the majority of the students in the University, the work done by the Department of University Extension is of very considerable importance. The centers formed consist of cities of various sizes situated in practically every part of California, and each year a number of entirely new cities is added to the list. In this way the educational advantages of the University are not limited to one certain locality, but are conveyed, through the agency of this department, to the patrons and friends of the institution throughout the State. The courses given during the year 1907-08 were as follows: One course on " The History of the French Revolution " at San Diego and one course on " The Reign of Queen Elizabeth " at -San Francisco were given by Professor H. Morse Stephens ; one course on " The History of Charity and the Care of the Poor " at San Francisco was given by Professor H. Morse Stephens and Professor Jessica B. Peixotto, this double course being a distinctly new departure; one course on " The Westward Move- ment in American History " at San Luis Obispo and one course on " The Rise and Fall of Spanish Power in Europe and America " at Santa Barbara were given by Mr. Don E. Smith; five courses on " Dramatic Literature in the Times of Elizabeth and James I " at Alameda, Marysville, Red Bluff, Bakersfield, and Sonora, and one course on " Art in Italy " at Stockton were given by Mr. Frederick Mortimer Clapp. Six centers at Napa, Oakland, Tulare, Fresno, Long Beach, and Los Angeles were temporarily suspended. 42 Summer Session LTHOUGH the registration of the summer season of 1907 (522) fell somewhat short of that of the year before, it was considered one of the best of the series of eight vacation schools so far held at California. The instructors who were present were drawn from the fore- most educators of the world. Among the most prominent visiting instructors were Professor John Adams of London University; Ellis McTaggart, Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge College; Professor Simon Newcomb, Astronomer at the United States Naval Observatory, besides a number both from Stanford and from various parts of the United States. In succeeding years, as California summer sessions become more widely known, it is to be expected that the University will be more and more favored with the attendance of great men. Said Professor Adams this summer: " No one ever refuses an invitation to attend summer school at California. The climate is so fine and the people treat one so well that it is worth coming a long way to enjoy. One might decline to go to some places, but California, no. " Besides the regular class work, Professor Rieber, who acted as dean, arranged a number of public evening lectures which were much appre- ciated. Two such lectures by Professor James Hyslop, noted for his researches in psychical phenomena, attracted wide attention. Music and dramatics were also well represented by a series of sym- phony concerts and the appearance of both Nance O ' Neil and Maude Adams in the Greek Theater. 44 Dedication f Hearst Mining Building BEFORE a large gather- ing of undergraduates, members of the Faculty, and numerous outsiders, the Hearst Memorial Mining Building, the latest of the buildings which will form a part of the Greater Univer- sity, was formally dedicated on the morning of August 26, 1907. The day was ideal for open - air exercises and the huge portals of the entrance made a fitting background for the speakers of the occa- sion. The ceremonies were opened by President Wheeler, who in a few words told of the importance of the new structure in the development of the plans for the future University. He was followed by architect John Galen How- ard, who outlined the work of construction. He remarked on the extreme efforts which were made by Professor Christy and himself to make the building a model of architectural beauty as well as service. A com- parison with European buildings used for the same purpose showed the superiority of the California structure over any others previously erected. The next speaker was Professor Samuel Christy, dean of the College of Mining, who endeavored to present to the audience the problem which confronted the designers of the building. He said in part: " The problem was to design a structure which should be a place where the student might acquire and test the power which comes from the mastery of the forces of nature; a place where he might learn to lead rather than follow. How far this effort has been successful will not appear until the equipment of the building, now hardly begun, is entirely com- pleted. However, the plans were so carefully studied that there is not a square foot of space in the entire structure which has not been made to anticipate as near as possible the needs of the department for many years to come. " T. Arthur Rickard, editor of the Mining and Scientific Press, said that he was to speak as a representative of the public. The benefits which would accrue to the public from the graduates of such a well-equipped school of mining could hardly be realized at the present time, he asserted, but in order to obtain the very best results he urged the endowing of chairs to men who occupied the highest station in the scientific world, to insure keeping the College in line with the development in the science. In behalf of his mother, Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, Honorable William Randolph Hearst closed the speech-making. He expressed great pleas- ure in having been an instrument in the development of the University of his native State. He had made a trip from New York for 1 the express purpose of being present on the auspicious occasion and hoped that the building would adequately fill the purpose for which it had been con- structed. He also thanked the various members of the faculty who had devoted their time and services in the interest of the building. 46 QMMFN Commencement Week ON THE evening of Saturday, May 11, the Senior men of the class of 1907 held their banquet in the Idora Park Cafe, Julius Klein, chair- man of the banquet committee, presiding. During the evening toasts were given by President Wheeler, Professors Stephens, Gayley, and Bacon, Honorable Francis J. Heney, Lincoln Steffens, Cal Haffey, Gurden Edwards, Alex Hartley, and Ralph Merritt. This event, together with the Senior Women ' s Jinks held at the same hour in Hearst Hall, marked the beginning of Commencement Week for the class of 1907. The following day, Sunday, the baccalaureate sermon was delivered at 3:30 o ' clock in Hearst Hall by the Reverend Bradford Leavitt. The afternoon of Monday, May 13, was devoted to the Greek games in the Greek Theater, of which Kingsbury E. Parker was director and S. De H. Levy herald. Each of the four classes in college was repre- sented by six men selected by the class president. Every contestant was required to enter all the events, which consisted of the old classic trials at running, jumping, and the weights. The athlete winning the greatest number of points, and thereby the laurel wreath, was George Schultz, ' 07. On the evening of the same day the Senior Ball was successfully held in Hearst Hall. Tuesday morning the class went on its pilgrimage. According to cus- tom the familiar spots on the campus were visited, at each of which speeches were given by prominent members of the class or Faculty. The procession formed at 10 o ' clock under the oaks, where it was addressed 48 by the class president, J. A. Hartley. The other speakers of the occasion were R. H. Van Sant, Jr., at California Hall, R. P. Merritt at the Agricul- tural Building, Miss Cornelia Stratton at the Library, Clyde B. Finger at the Chemistry Building, T. K. Sweesy at the Civil Engineering Building, G. C. Jones at the Mining Building, H. M. Hall at the Mechanics Building, and Professor Stephens at North Hall. At the last named place the pro- cession divided, the women going to Hearst Hall, where they were addressed by Miss Ruth Salinger, and the men to Senior Hall, where Julian C. Whitman spoke. At 8 p. m. the extravaganza, " The Limit, " was staged in the Greek Theater. Garnett Holme was gen- eral, Paul Steindorff musical, and Miss Leta Saunders dancing di- rector, all of whom contributed to the marked success of the production. Commencement Day " Wednesday, May 15, was set aside as Commencement Day. At 12:30 the Alumni Association held its annual meeting in Cali- fornia Hall. At 1 p. m. the Sen- iors, lunched with the alumni under the oaks. The Commence- ment Day exercises were held at 3 p. m. in the Greek Theater. After the invocation, addresses were delivered by Andrew Fran- cis Burke, representing the pro- fessional schools of San Fran- cisco ; Clinton Kelly Judy of the graduate department at Berkeley, and Norman Abraham Eisner for the undergraduate department. After the addresses the military commissions were delivered by Governor Gillett, the University medal was awarded to Norman Abraham Eisner, and the degrees were conferred upon the graduating class by President Wheeler. Music and the benediction then closed the commencement week for the class of 1907. 4;- Formal Opening of the Infirmary PRIL 16, 1907, the members of the Prytanean Society were at home to students from 3 to 5 p. m. The purpose of the reception was to show the guests the newly built hospital, which had already done much good service. Light refreshments were served to all visitors at the nurses ' quarters and everything was done to show the public the new hospital. The build- ing had just been completed and compared favorably with any of its kind. The grounds were being straightened and the place already had a cheerful appearance. The hospital called to mind the long struggle on the part of President Wheeler, Doctor Reinhardt, and others, for the establishment of such an institution. It also called forth much praise for the society of University women which had done so much for the cause. The capacity of the hospital is twenty-five beds, and it has all modern equipments. Since the opening it has had a most remarkable record in the number of cases successfully handled, and in its admirable manage- ment it deserves the highest praise from all. The fact that it accommo- dates so many students without extra fees being necessary is a record which no other like institution at any university in the country can boast. 50 The Tale f Camp California By HARRY HALL, ' 08 S WE look back now on our summer surveying days at Camp California, the disagreeable duties were really the fun and our troubles were all jokes. It was no joke then to have yellow-faced Jim, the cook, beat his dishpan in your ear at 5 a. m., yelling " Get up bleakfast! Get up bleakfast! " These nerve-grating sounds awoke the slumbering in- stincts of ancestral savagery and you could hardly resist throwing your heavy hobnailed boot at his Oriental head. Instead, you prob- ably fired some remark of would-be wit, which fell upon hardened ears, or was lost in the confusion of a hundred and fifty other remarks of a similar nature. In fact, the air became so thick with terms that this cook feared for his safety and the honored position of camp-waker was trans- ferred to Teddy and his bugle. This process was a trifle more musical and much more penetrating, but just as conducive to a cannonade of camp wit. However, Teddy was a husky. He had shot ducks, could wrestle some, wore moccasins, and hence held his own against camp rough-necks. Those moccasins of his created quite a sensation the first time they walked down the camp street. This happened to be one evening after supper. With the " pick-handle " Mr. Frickstad (in charge) had corraled his volatile subjects in the open-air lecture-room preparatory to an analytical discus- sion of either camp etiquette or railroad curves when Teddy ' s moccasins appeared sauntering up the line. " Oof, oof, " went the camp rough-necks. ' Hail, Hiawatha, " cried Cerf. The lecture was adjourned until every one joined in an Indian pow-wow around the fire, much to Teddy ' s disgust. Nevertheless, Teddy didn ' t get mad. That isn ' t in the game. No one ever gets really angry at summer school. TEDDY The night Ivan stained his spotless character will never be forgotten. A little way to the northwest of camp was a some- thing which was not considered very nice by Mr. Frickstad, who warned all the good boys to keep away from it. But on this Satur- day night all the bad boys went, including Ivan, and the bad boys played everything, from the slot machine to the " mischief. It is not known what Ivan was looking for, but he got his and a little bit more. Among these was a dictionary. This dictionary, he philosophified, was the North Pole, and on his way home he stuck close to the Pole. He added, also, to his col- lection a huge bowlder which he inappropriately named the Queen of Siam. Next morning Mr. Frick- stad received a note from some proprietor requesting the return of a looking-glass and a rocking- chair. The dictionary evidently had not been missed. That afternoon when the boys were in the field Mr. Frickstad sherlocked around in the tents and under the cots looking for a missing rocking-chair. Camp etiquette is a strange thing, but it really exists. At the table, for instance or, better, at the long, stained, and greasy board called a table the only pre- requisite of a well-bred gentleman is to scoop up most everything in sight and dump it into one ' s own tin plate, but always leave just a little in the dish for the sake of looks. Now, there was a young man who didn ' t care for looks, and dumped everything into his own plate. For this he suffered a tantalizing pun- ishment. Nothing was ever handed to him except the empty pans, and yet every one seemed so very solicitous of his receiving the best of attention. He would ask for a little meat, please. Why, cer- tainly, but the meat pans never came his way. At other times every unused tin on the table would be piled in front of his place at his plaintive request for a piece of bread. The bread question took some funny turns. Hot biscuits were a luxury and came far oftener the way of the Faculty than that of the " pick- handled " students. One evening the hungry bunch of " pick-handleds " sat on the sloping ground just outside the dining tent, waiting for the clanging of the triangle, when " Rastus " took heaping plates of hot biscuits from the kitchen to the Faculty table in full sight of the bunch. Right then and there a conspiracy brewed. When the triangle did sound that Faculty table was mobbed till it looked like a Christmas tree in July. It was really unfortunate that the Faculty table was situated so near the long tables of the 150 victims of the " pick-handle, " for these could easily see the juicy porterhouse and tenderloin steaks that never passed further than the Faculty table. Thus originated the famous " Faculty steak. " When Rastus brought in the " Faculty steak, " and " Honk-Honk Mitch " didn ' t see it at once, Rastus slipped him the news on the quiet. Whereupon Honk-Honk Mitch asked Gus, at the other end of the table, very loudly, if Gus had had any steak this evening. Gus replied " What?!! " " Steak! Porterhouse steak. Didn ' t you get any of it? " " No! Where ' s the steak? " Then everybody breaks in with " On the Faculty table! " Swimming, or, more precisely, getting one ' s self rolled, pounded, and then strangled in the breakers, has been the strenuous and favorite pastime of all summer camps. The Faculty and Mr. Alvarez always sported bath- ing suits, but some members of the Faculty never aimed to get their suits dampened, while Mr. Alvarez seemed to enjoy having a breaker pick him up and plant him head-first in the sand as well as the next one. A small few very talented students could ride surf boards after the Hawaiian fashion, lying flat on the lower half of a six-foot board with the front end slightly elevated. Mr. Bishop was an instructor who liked the breakers and didn ' t worry much about his bathing suit. One day after his swim he felt a little more frisky than usual probably because Polaris hadn ' t shown up the night before and as the result of an argument with Sooy, who had his clothes on, pulled the latter off the rocks into the water. The Dutch in Sooy AL. MYERS SAYS EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS AT SUMMER CAMP vowed revenge. Bishop went back into the water and Sooy walked into camp carrying an article or two of dress other than his own. Those staying in camp could hear, about a half an hour later, a dull roar. This roar crescendoed nearer. One was immediately reminded of the approach- ing mob as represented on the stage. Every one grabbed his kodak and made for the center of disturbance, which now seemed to be at the bridge. Sure enough, there was the howling mob, and who was in front leading? A Spanish cavalier? No, only Mr. Bishop, in high boots and a broad black hat that ' s all. In this fashion Bishop had walked the quarter of a mile from the beach to the camp between a double line of cameras with a wildly dancing pack of human coyotes at his heels. Towards the end of the first summer session a few convivial spirits 54 planned that a fitting end to their four weeks of surveying would be a bonfire celebration on the beach. It was thought that such a situation demanded, for the sake of consistency and appropriateness, beverages which sparkled under a white foam. There were to be two kinds of these, alike in color and action, but different in taste and reaction. One kind was for the good boys and the other for the bad boys. Arrangements were progressing nicely, when the idea occurred to the good boys that they ought to object. Their objection took the form of a petition to the Faculty. There were twelve names on the petition, and the petitioners were thereafter known as the " dirty dozen. " The Faculty decided that, since the matter had been brought to their attention, they would have to set down a mighty " No! " to any such celebration where the liquid refresh- ments were anything but milk. But the bad boys would not be milksops. They argued and promised. " Butts " poured forth hot oil of sarcasm and wit. Sooy blarneyed McCampbell against a tree. Cerf plowed through Mr. Frickstad ' s center with a preponderance of argument. Teddy wore his moccasins, swore, got mad, threw down his hat, then sat upon the ground but with no avail. The Faculty answered they could fight anything with a pick-handle but booze. The arguments lasted till it was almost time to take the evening shoot at Polaris, with McCampbell still holding the impregnable bulwarks of the Faculty. McCampbell was a good fellow and a good instructor and well liked, but his arguments were so filled with Scotch subtlety that exception was taken to their satirical import. McCampbell to be burned in effigy was the word handed among the bad boys that night. The effigy grew rapidly man-size. Al Seabury con- tributed a brand new khaki coat. Mr. Alvarez lent a shirt. Butts handed over his corduroys without a word and lived in a blanket for a while. Ivan donated his leaking boots. Al Wilder added a suggestion now and then till all was complete and the peacefully resting form was stretched on an empty cot. At a given signal a big row was kicked up in front of the tent, and Freshmen came running from all sides to investigate the trouble. The pallbearers were selected. Teddy was put in front with his bugle, then the corpse and pallbearers, while behind followed the 150 in single file, all hats being crossed to the left breast. Teddy blew a more mournful tune than usual to the chanting of the " McCampbells Are Com- ing " by the 150. The procession wound again and again about the Faculty quarters, where, as luck would have it, the members were preparing the grades for the session ' s work. Arriving at the scaffold, the effigy was strung up and the fire started with appropriate ceremony. But the green grass interior of the figure didn ' t burn well and the bad boys decided that coal oil would assist matters. Large quantities of this they secured from the tents of the good boys who were then viewing the cremation. There were songs and stories and solos by Sing, the cook, till the last glowing ember crumbled into ashes and the fellows drifted back to their respective tents. Later a long line of good boys waited their turn at the commissary department to fill their lamps. A short distance away was the Faculty still busy handing out threes to the bad boys. Thus ended the first session. 56 Pushball Contest ON September 21, 1907, the second annual push ball game between the Freshmen and Sophomores was held, resulting in a score of 7 to in favor of the Sophomores. The game differed somewhat from the one of the previous year inasmuch as the rules were altered so as to make scoring possible, thus adding greatly to the excitement of the game. The players, three hundred in number, came on the field with a rush, and their grotesque clothes added to their fierce appearance. The push ball was placed in the center of the field and at the sound of the whistle both classes began to push. Excitement ran high on the bleachers, for oftentimes the big ball was high above the heads of the contestants, and then it would roll from its lofty height, over the players, and down past the side lines. With individual scrimmages and collective force the Sophs made the first touchdown, it being notable because it was the first touchdown ever made in a push-ball contest on California field. But even after the first points were scored the Sophs had to fight for every thing they made, and after scoring seven points the final whistle was blown, leaving the suprem- acy settled in favor of the older class. The game is very interesting, and not only arouses excitement among the players, but also among the spectators. It is one of the best ways to settle the spirit of rivalry between the two lower classes and also helps to further class spirit. R Football Carnival POSSIBLY nothing during the fall term caused quite so great a stir among the college folk as a whole as did the Football Carnival. For days before the date set for its actual culmination the spirit and throb of it kept palpitating back and forth across the campus. During this time little knots of men were everywhere gathered wrangling mysteriously, doing politics for Carnival Queen. The final result was the election of Queen Tadlock I by a small but satisfactory majority. The first glimpse of what the real magnitude of the affair was to be was afforded by the Carnival rally held in the Greek Theater on the evening of September 27. Here enthusiasm ran high, and the rally will be long remembered as the largest and most fantastic ever held at the University. At 2 o ' clock on the afternoon of Saturday, September 28, the partici- pants in the Carnival, attired in their strange dress, formed iri four divisions in front of the Gym steps. From here they followed their respective banners of pink, green, blue, and yellow down to Shattuck avenue, where a long line of street cars were awaiting them. The procession first went to Seventh street, Oakland. Thence they marched up Broadway to Four- teenth, again boarded awaiting street cars and made for Idora Park to commence the festivities. The procession throughout was under the man- agement of W. S. Wells, ' 09. Very little idea can here be given of what really occurred at Idora Park that afternoon and evening. Everywhere were fantastic garbs; every- where the jam, and laughs, and fun. The spielers announced multitudinous attractions. Two college shows offered continuous performances. In the middle of the Gladway, F. E. Johnson, ' 08, conducted a wheel of fortune, where dimes were lost and boxes of candy won. Vernon Alvord, ' 08, held a raffle for a picture of the football statue. Mikel, ' 09, proclaimed in stentorian tones the merits of certain prize packages ten cents each. H. M. Leggett, ' 09, collected prodigious fines over the bar of the police court. Julia Evans, ' 08, presided over a country fair booth, and Rose Schmidt, ' 09, aided by an able corps of assistants, dispensed good things over the counter of the candy and ice cream pavilion. All these attrac- tions were under the supervision of two committees, of which Dave Levy, ' 08, and Carl Whitmore, ' 08, were chairmen. Sam Hume was the man who conceived the idea of the Carnival, was chairman of it, and proved himself the " man of the hour. " 58 Wheeler Dajr FRIDAY, October 4, was taken by the Faculty and students of the University to express their satisfaction that President Wheeler had decided to remain in California instead of going to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At the regular University meeting Regent John A. Britton and Profes- sors Moses, Hilgard, Bacon, and Stephens spoke. Professor Bacon pre- sented President Wheeler a parchment conferring upon him a high, though unofficial, degree, expressing the gratification and appreciation of the Faculty. President Wheeler spoke briefly and earnestly in reply. At a lunch at the Faculty Club later, Professor Stringham presided and Mr. Charles S. Greene, ' 86, Mr. Guy C. Earl, ' 83, Doctor L. H. Willey, and Professor Stephens spoke, the last presenting the President a loving cup from the Faculty. President Wheeler acknowledged the cup and the motives that prompted it. In the afternoon the students of the University gave a reception in Hearst Hall to President and Mrs. Wheeler. In the evening the Order of the Golden Bear, of which President Wheeler is a member, held a meeting in his honor. Mr. Charles S. Wheeler, ' 84, and Mr. John R. Glascock, ' 65, spoke. As a token of affection, the members of the order then presented to the President a large model in bronze of the Golden Bear pin. 00 Track Rally April 16, 1907 THE spring rally was held in the Greek Theater on the evening of April 16. The seats were well filled, and a big fire and the band made things lively. Colonel Edwards was the first speaker. He praised the good work done at the Freshman meet and exhorted the Freshmen to take good care of the big " C " and the plot of ground where the flagpole stands. " Billy " Powell came next, and compared the old days and the present. Coach Garnett spoke of boating, and Walter Christie briefly of track. Freshman Rally August 30, 1907 The Freshman Rally, held Friday evening, August 30, deserves to live long in history. The infant class kept it warm enough to be comfortable, the theater was full of people, and there was much jollification. These made a good setting. As for the rally itself, " Get into the game " was the very spirit of it. Captain Tuller and " Wreck " Womble represented ath- letics in no half-hearted fashion. The Budweiser Quartet sang several songs that were appreciated, and Professor Roberts, Professor Setchell, and Judge Waste gave rousing talks. But it was Professor Stephens who made the speech of the evening. His definition of college spirit will long live in the memories of all who heard him. Smoker Rail jr November 7, 1907 The Smoker Rally in the Gym on the evening of Thursday, November 7, was tremendously enthusiastic. The new stunts for the game were revealed, and the band, De Koven Club, and Budweiser Quartet furnished music. The rally was addressed by Phil Carey, ' 04, former yell leader; Superior Judge Melvin, ' 89, of Oakland; Milt Schwartz, ' 01, another old yell leader ; Ralph Merritt, ' 04 ; John R. Glascock, ' 65 ; Harry Dehm, ' 05, and Everett J. Brown, ' 98. 61 Pajama Rally " September 27, 1907 The Pajama Rally occurred on September 27. Special pub- lic interest was attracted to it by the fact that rumors of the Car- nival doings were in the air, and the men wore their CarnivaJ costumes. There have been ral- lies where enthusiasm ran higher the enthusiasm of the students had been pretty heav- ily drawn upon for several days but never before has there been so great a crowd at one. The Greek Theater was packed and there were many people outside. It is probable that there were 10,000 persons on the campus. Harry Jenkins was master of ceremonies. The speakers were Doctor Crawford and Doctor Morgan of the Faculty; Hon- orable William R. Davis, who recalled the days when the class of ' 74 graduated its twenty-three members, including the first co-ed, and Mr. Burney Miller, who presented to Sam Hume the yell leader ' s cane which Miller, when he was in college, raised money to buy. Mr. Hume made a modest speech of acceptance. He then, by request, introduced Queen Tadlock. The Budweiser Quartet rendered several numbers and Hal Bingham a solo. The Buzzard Octet then sang the new prize-winning California Hymn, followed by the crowd, after which everybody adjourned to the old football field, where a serpentine was held around the bonfire. c lxe Rally November 1, 1907 At the Axe Rally, the story of the axe and its capture, told by Archie Cloude, ' 00, was the principal feature. Custodian Jordan, ' 08, presented the axe to Schaeffer, ' 09, the new custodian, and the crowd serpentined down to the bank. 62 Running October 25, 1907 WIND, rain, and mud had apparently no effect upon the enthusiastic neophytes of Skull and Key at the annual running on October 25. With their white duck trousers rolled just high enough to give a glimpse at the exquisite color scheme of hose beneath, they made themselves almost useful, as umbrella-bearers to the hurrying co-eds. But if ever dress coats and white ducks looked foolish, it was in the cold downpour of that morning. By 11 o ' clock the white ducks had shrunk to knickerbockers, and thus disguised as a combination of ballet and Highlanders this sturdy band marched with measured solemnity to Harmon gymnasium to the stately chant of " Who, who, who are we, loyal Skull and Key! " There in the roadway the dripping bunch did stunts until noon, to the great joy of the people crowded upon the Gym steps. Varied and marvelous were the performances of the neophytes as they went patiently from one group of spectators to another, singing their plaintive love ditties or thundering forth their speeches with the oratory of a Demosthenes. A large audience had gathered to witness the initiation stunts in spite of the rain, and nearly every onlooker experienced the pleasant sensation of having a little rivulet of rain water from his neighbor ' s umbrella trickling down the back of his neck. In spite of the dampness, however, the crowd stayed with the " show " till the finish, which came with the departure of the motley throng to engage in their strenuous hashing duties. With what success these versatile artists waited upon the luncheon tables of the various sororities that day, the chronicler knows not, neither does he guess. The performance in the afternoon was the real entertainment of the day and its effect was that of a three-ringed circus arrangement, where the spectator ' s attention was being continually attracted from a soul-uplifting 63 discourse going on before him to the discordant notes of a duet being sung at the station on his right, or the mournful chant of another group on his left, while all the time the laughable character make-ups did clownish antics upon the field in front of the grand stand. At 3 o ' clock a plume-decked coach rolled up to California field with as motley an aggregation of conglomerate human atrocities as was ever before gathered together. The field was so muddy that only the Hooli- gans, Chinamen, and Indians dared venture upon it, and the coquettishly dainty feminines, gold-braided counts, and immaculate sailor lads did their little turns in the aisle in front of the bleachers. But the effect was just as thrilling as at any " running " in the past. The annual play was presented in Oakland on March 25. The comedy, " A Stranger in a Strange Land, " was the sort which kept every one laugh- ing from the opening speech of a dainty maiden, with a voice that would have done credit to a mule driver, to the amorous " picture " at the end of the last act. The cast of characters was : Mr. Charles Dudley, Jack ' s uncle on his mother ' s side William Wells Jack Thorndyke, proprietor of a cattle ranch at Buffalo, N. Y. . Geo. L. Bell Doctor John Boiler, promoter of Boiler ' s Indian Bitters and general fakir Sayre Macneil Ta-mo-nee, an American Indian chief Conger Morgan Arthur Lowe, former college chum of Jack ' s Richard Snell Harrington, of Scotland Yard John Tyssowski Watson, Mrs. Holcombe ' s butler Malcomb Campbell Alice Wellington, an American Girl Paul Yost Mrs. Barton Holcombe, Jack ' s aunt on his father ' s side Otis Johnson May Holcombe, her daughter Rudolph Miller Grace Thorndyke, Jack ' s sister Lawrence Earnist 64 Woman ' s Jinks ' HE spring term jinks were begun rather late in the season with a jolly evening which the women of the Sophomore class spent in Hearst Hall, Wednesday, March 28. A comparatively small number of women were present, yet the affair was a complete success. Maude Cleveland, Irma Bromley, and Alice Southworth were in charge of the programme; Edna De Wolf, Maja McCabe, and Laura Thayer in charge of refreshments; Edith Joy, Blanch Bowers, Violet Ottoman, Rena Hunt, and Lucy Phillips had charge of the finance. A week later Hearst Hall was again the scene of merri- ment, when the Freshman girls trooped thither for their good time. It was the first jinks which the entering class planned for themselves, and no pains were spared to make it successful in every detail. The plans were, in general, those of the other affairs of this sort, though the program was an unusually lively one. Owing to the sentiment prevalent among the Junior women that an informal dance would be more enjoyable than the jinks and also demand less preparation, they voted to forego their annual jolly-up. A radical change took place in the plans of the Senior women when a banquet was decided upon to take place of the usual jinks. It was held in Hearst Hall on May 11. Zoe Riley acted as toastmistress, and the following women responded to toasts: Gertrude Neeley, " The Eve of Departure " ; Mabel Edwards, " To the University " ; Ruth Salinger, " The Freshman Year " ; Cornelia Stratton, " The Associated Women Stu- dents " ; Miss Lucy Sprague, " College Women in College " ; Ethel Denny, " College Women in the World " ; Cecil Harrold, " What We May Still Do for the University " ; Alice Berry, " Bright Days After Graduation " ; Bess Markle, " To the Class. " This closed the women ' s special events for the term. Early the following fall, however, the jinks were again recalled by the one given to the entering class by Professor and Mrs. Magee, early in the term, according to their usual custom. The delight of the Freshmen was all the keener, being mixed with a certain degree of wonder at the strangeness of it all. As always, the evening was a pleasant one and every one felt that the Freshmen were properly initiated into the joys of college life. A. W. S. " At Homes " THE annual spring " open house " was held by the Associated Women Students at Hearst Hall on Friday afternoon, April 19, 1907, from 3 to 6. As usual, this was in the nature of a farewell to the departing officers and a welcome to those just entering upon their duties. Those in charge of the affair in general were: Program Irma Bromley, Alice Southworth, Anna Barney, Alice Weymouth, Jane Hawk, Mary Henry; Reception Maude Cleveland, Alice Porterfield, Annie Biddle, Marguerite Daniels, Elsie Cole, Alma Tobin, Ethel Johnson, Stella Harman, Florence Goddard, Edith McGraw, Edith Slack; Refreshments Gladys Armstrong, Esther Phillips, Genevieve Pratt, Hazel Burpee, Vena Tomlin, Margaret Hizar, Gladys Gifford, Irma Phleger, Lucile Daniels; Decorations Florence Jackson, Rose Schmidt, Katherine Van Dervort, Vivian Place, Evelyn Rust, Bessie Wolfe, Ellen Witman, Gladys Moore. This ended the Associated Women ' s activities for the term. The next " open house " was held on the afternoon of September 4, from 3:30 to 6 o ' clock. Those in charge were: Program Elma Edwards, Ida Cowley, Amy Hill, Jessie Bowers, Julia Evans, Lita Lauxen, Irma Bromley, Violet Ottoman; Reception Esto Dunbar, Grace Bardshar, Pearl Chase, Chris- tina Krysto, Ethel Lucy, Bessie Goodwin, Stella Harman, Viola Ahlers, Maude Cleveland, Martha Chickering, Hazel Burpee, Rose Schmidt, Carrie Parsons, Maja McCabe, Helen Pinkham, Cheryl Merril, Loretta Knapp, Carrie Winter, Bessie Worley; Refreshments Louetta Weir, Irma Mamiel, Margaret Menihan, Jean Nichols, Dorothy Doyle, Widde Kendricks, Bess Elliott, Hazel Hotchkiss, Alma Tobin. 66 ON SATURDAY, February 22. under-graduate activities were surren- dered unconditionally to the women students of the University. For one whole day mere man ' s influence in things athletic, dramatic, jour- nalistic, and social was as nothing. The appearance of the Daily Califor- nian under a woman ' s staff was the first visible demonstration of things strange and unusual. Jane Alice Hawk, ' 08, was editor-in-chief; Maude Cleveland, ' 09, managing editor; Jessie Bowers, ' 08, Rebecca Porter, ' 09, and Esther Philli ps, ' 09, news editors. Elizabeth Kedrilovansky, ' 08, Emma Mehlmann, ' 08, Emily Disbrow, ' 09, Margaret Hizar, ' 10, and Christina Krysto, ' 09, acted as associate editors. Almost the entire forenoon was devoted to athletic contests. The boat races at Lake Merritt were started at 9:30 a. m. with five crews, representing the four under classes and the graduates, in competition. The Sophomore aggregation, composed of Louise Taney, stroke; Hazel Meyers, bow, and Mabel Pierpont, coxswain, won a hotly contested race. In the finals of the tennis tournament Ara Brown of the Junior class defeated Marian Taverner, ' 08, for champion honors. The basketball con- test went to the Freshman-Senior team. The score was 8-11. In the afternoon the vaudeville show and women ' s jinks, under the able management of Jessie Bowers, ' 08, met an unprecedented success, if sundry rumors from feminine headquarters are to be at all credited. Not the least of the many attractions was the Pelican booth. The old bird was truly funny, thanks to Elma Edwards and her able staff of assistants. Possibly the most enjoyable event of all, however, was the Colonial Ball, held during the evening. Here the men students were given a wee bit of consideration and the function will go down in history as most successful. University Meetings WHEN President Wheeler came to the University in 1899 he instituted the idea of University meetings as they ' exist today. On alternate Fridays the colors of California float from the University flag-staff, and at 11 o ' clock the entire Faculty and student body assemble for University meetings. The Faculty of twelve colleges and three thousand students meet as a great unit on the common ground of interested and enthusiastic loyalty to California. From the first meeting of the college year, when President Wheeler welcomes the Freshman class to the University, to the last meeting, of which the Seniors have charge, the meetings are not only a close link within the University, but they form an important connection with the outside world. This connection is established by the presence at every meeting of one or more speakers statesmen, scholars, educators, min- isters, business or professional men, and alumni of California. The following speakers have delivered addresses at University meetings during the past year: Francis J. Heney, Henry Weinstock, Professor Bernard Moses, Reverend William Herman Hopkins, Mayor Edward Robeson Taylor, Reverend William F. Anderson, Professor Emeritus E. W. Hilgard, Professor Thomas R. Bacon, Regent J. A. Britton, Doctor Jacob Voorsanger, Reverend Thomas V. Moore, Mr. J. R. Glascock, ' 65, Mr. John Graham Brooks, Professor Andrew C. Lawson, Reverend William M. Martin, ' 00, Ezra Decoto, ' 00, Doctor Taylor, ' 94, Professor Henry Morse Stephens, Professor William Dallam Armes, Reverend Charles R. Brown, Doctor J. D. Long, Doctor W. C. Morgan, Honorable Jenkins Lloyd Jones. 68 cTVIass Meetings THE custom inaugurated in 1906-07 has been continued, and mass meetings have been held when topics of vital interest to the student body have come up. Two such meetings have been called during the college year. The first was called by President J. M. Burke of the Associated Students, on the evening of Thursday, November 21. The chief subject for discussion was the comparative merits of Rugby and American foot- ball under the new rules. M. E. Harrison, ' 08, opened the discussion for the American game. He said that Rugby had not come up to expectations, that the American game permitted of a more systematic campaign, and would no doubt be better supported by both students and public. He was followed by Mr. Cameron, who had played Rugby in England, and who defended the game, stating that it could not be learned in two years, and prophesying that the Pacific Coast might develop a team that could capture the championship of the world. Mr. Reed, ex-head coach for Harvard University, spoke next, setting forth the good points of the old game, the greater opportunity for head work, and the advantages of the new ten-yard rule and the neutral-territory idea. Captain-elect G. V. Bell, ' 09, stated that at the recent football banquet twenty-seven had voted for the American game to three for Rugby. C. S. Cerf summed up the whole matter by saying that Rugby was a better game for pure sport, but the American game was better for a contest. Another subject considered at the meeting was the proposed separa- tion of the A. W. S. from the A. S. U. C. The dormitory committee also submitted a plan for raising money, and ways and means for building a new quarter-mile cinder path were discussed. The second mass meeting was held on Thursday evening, January 30, 1908, to consider ways of restoring the Daily Californian. That it was successful we have proof in the fact that that deservedly celebrated periodical once more appeared in full size, non-panic form soon after the meeting. C9 Prytanean Fete THE Prytaneans have seen the student Infirmary grow from a well- organized plan into a sound institution. The cherished wish of its founders has been realized. And the regulation fee paid by the students has placed the Infirmary on a good running basis. For this reason the Prytaneans felt that they could undertake another cause jointly with the support of the Infirmary. This was the advancement of women ' s dormitories on the University campus. The lack of these has long been felt, but the time has come when the need is immediate. One year ago the society held a fete at Idora Park, during the afternoon and evening of November 3. The largest sum of money was turned into the treasury that had been realized from any previous entertainment. It was then decided to try the same plan again. Early in the year arrangements were made with the Idora Park management, and the fete was held on October 26. Several previous fetes made it necessary to select this late date, and again the Prytaneans bought and sold their wares in the rain. It seemed advisable not to try the plan of the co-operation of the clubs and secondary schools again, and thus the pleasure seekers were confined to college students and University alumni. All afternoon and evening there were hosts of familiar faces crowding the booths. The booths represented different universities, but as each booth chose its own color scheme, each was individual. The California and Stanford booths were aglow with college pennants and the " old horse show " afforded great amusement. The Faculty women presented a new feature in their booth. They served tea and sold original books and pamphlets entitled " Tea Leaves " that proved very clever. 70 TO SMOKE or not to smoke! That was the question which troubled the class of 1909 in its Sophomore year and caused a long and heated controversy between the members. There was a strong party in the class that believed " beer- busts " under the name of smokers were a disgrace to the fair name of the University, and especially when those " smokers " occurred in the Sophomore year, before the student has reached the age of discretion. There was another faction of naughty-niners, who, although they did not particularly favor beer-busts, believed that they served a good purpose in drawing the men of the class together, and any way they would prefer to see a " beer-bust " rather than to see an old college " tradition-bust. " Finally, there were those with the long thirst, who liked beer for beer ' s sake and who hated to miss a good chance. The fight between these factions almost rent the class asunder, but at last a compromise was reached and it was decided to call the event " a smoker for 1909 men, " in place of " the 1909 Sophomore smoker. " With this technical change in the affair it was held as scheduled in Lorin Hall, and those present reported a jolly time without more than the usual amount of rough-house. Practically the same trouble developed in the ranks of the 1910 men this year when they proposed a Sophomore smoker. In fact, the ques- tion was made an issue in the second-term presidency campaign, and the anti-smoker candidate won out. However, at an informal meeting of a number of the 1910 men it was decided to go ahead with the plans for a smoker, and accordingly it was held on February 21 at California Park in West Berkeley, and the usual hilariously good time was enjoyed by those who attended. At the present time little has been said and nothing done about a 1910 Junior smoker, and whether it will be held or something else substituted remains for future decision. Labor Day " ONLY once in four or eight years is it given to the students of the University to don their workaday attire and to go forth to manual labor on the campus for the love of alma mater. Although the official Labor Day occurs only at such long intervals, the students have always stood ready to bend their backs to arduous tasks when the emergency has demanded, as in the case of the work on California Field in 1906, and the sentiment has been generally expressed in favor of having a labor day every year, instead of waiting for leap years. The labor-day custom was established in 1896, when Regent Reinstein put before the students the financial distress of the University and the crying need of improvements on the campus for which there was not money to pay. The result was that the suggested improvements were made by the willing hands of student workers, and a University tradition was started. February 29 was the official day set for Labor Day, and hence the second celebration of the event did not occur till 1904, but when it did come it was even a greater success than the first, and the permanency of the tradition was assured. On account of heavy rain, the celebration this year was postponed from February 29 to March 7. By 8 o ' clock on the morning of the latter day 850 men were on hand to begin work. The various colleges had different meeting places, and each had also a distinctive costume and yell. 72 When all had congregated they marched to California Field, where picks, shovels, and wheelbarrows were distributed. These instruments of toil were generously loaned by business or construction firms of Berkeley or Oakland. After being armed, the various gangs were taken in charge by the " straw bosses, " and according to prearranged schedule were set to work on many parts of the campus. Some worked under the football bleachers, clearing away the dirt from the under-pinnings. Others built a road east of the California Field, the baseball diamond was leveled off, the track was repaired, the bank on the southern boundary of the University grounds was cut down and graded, and many other points on the campus received the attention of the laborers. The serious business of the day continued till one o ' clock, when the general order was given to shoulder arms and to march back to the stacking grounds. After getting rid of their implements of toil, the men formed lock-step up to the basketball court, where the women of the University had been performing their part of the day ' s labor, and it was no small part to feed this ravenous throng of toilers. The commissary department was method- ical and well arranged under the direction of an able committee of forty women, and all had plenty to eat. After the " feed " everybody adjourned to California Feld, where the fake games were held and the bleachers were kept in convulsions of laughter. President Wheeler spoke to the students, thanking them in the name of the University for the work done. Regent Reinstein also made a few remarks, telling of the origin of Labor Day and the value of the custom. The day was brought to a close with the boxing and wrestling exhibition at Harmon Gymnasium, and all concerned proclaimed California ' s third Quadriennial Labor Day a most successful affair. 74 R-DAY THE fortieth anniversary of the founding of the University and the third anniversary of the building of the Big " C " were commemo- rated on Monday, March 23. The former anniversary commemorates the birth of the University, and the latter is in honor of an important step in the development of a truer and higher University spirit, and it is appropriate that they should both fall on the same day. The Charter Day anniversary was celebrated by exercises in- the Greek Theater, at which President Vance of Brown University was the principal speaker of the day. Charter Day is also the occasion of class reunions, and many of the old grads were present to join their former classmates in marching to the theater. The classes at present in college formed between North and South Halls, from whence they took up the line of march with the grads and the Faculty, who were also in the procession. Contrary to the usual condition of the weather at this time of the year, the day was ideal, and the theater was packed with a vast audience, which responded heartily to the stirring address of President Faunce. The invocation and benediction were given by Dr. Willey, one of the founders of the University and at one time its President. Music was furnished by an orchestra and an alumni chorus under the leadership of Professor Magee. In the morning of Charter Day the ceremony of deeding the Big " C " to the Freshman class by the class of 1910 was carried out. The men of the two classes met at Hearst Hall and went from there to Charter Hill, where the deed was formally passed over to President C. A. Kash of the Freshmen by President H. A. Savage of the Sophomores. After the ceremony the men returned to Hearst Hall, where the women of the class had prepared lunch for them. Although there are many who bewail the loss of the old class rush, which livened the Charter Days of old, yet to the disinterested outsider the present method of celebrating the day, by which the two lower classes join hands and signify their intention to uphold the highest interests of the University even at the expense of personal pleasure, is a sign of a nobler spirit and truer loyalty than was evidenced by the old-time battle and rough-house. While the classes of 1907 and 1908 have the honor and glory of inaugurating the Big " C " tradition, it was the good fortune of the class of 1909 to be able to add to its beauty and effectiveness by the instal- lation of the electric lights on the emblem, so that on the eve of moment- ous occasions the golden " C " shines forth above the University an inspiration for love and loyalty in the heart of every true Californian. 76 The College Year 1907-1908 April 2 1909 Blue and Gold staff announced.

Yet the first long, silent year, One after one, our hopes we leave behind Discouraged and unsatisfied. With fear We face our tasks ; and when the year has passed Many there are who softly breathe, " At last! " Half doubting yet half glad do we return, Slowly perceiving that we, too, are part Of a great, glorious whole ; and in his turn Each one of us smiles bravely and takes heart, Trusting through all the troubles which appear In the bright promise of the coming year. Then comes the Junior Year! Ever will live Its memory when it has ceased to be; When hearts untouched by doubt no thought can give To what has passed, nor fathom wonderingly That which is yet to come. The joy to rest Within the golden Now that joy is best. And when this, too, is gone, there ' s but a pause One short, swift year which dreamlike seems to fade ; One backward look, one sigh for that which was . . . Then we go forth, saddened yet unafraid, Bearing through the uncertain years to be The blessing of our University. 82 The Senior Class Carl Whitmore Harry Jenkins THIS class entered the University as the Class of 1908, almost four years ago, and ever since its first registration day it has made its presence felt. Only a few of its wonderful achievements, however, can be mentioned here. In athletics such men as Tuller, Butler, Budelman, de Mamiel, Balzari, and Jordan are an honor to their class. The class has no reason to be ashamed of its debaters, for Say re Macneil, Peixotto, and Harrison are already known as brilliant orators. In journalism it is considered original and promising, but its chief glory lies in dramatics. What class can ever hope to possess such actors as Dave Levy, Carl Whitmore, Van Phinney, and the inimitable Sam Hume? So as the members of the class glance back over their four years, they may well feel satisfied and comfortable in spirit, and altogether glad that they belong to the Class of 1908.

Hume Class Goat Harold Ramsden Class Chaperon Sayre Macneil JVNIOR The Junior Class Six hundred elements of fame From a hundred prep schools emitted, By one force impelled together came And with them a reaction as it befitted A cloud of smoke, a loud report! The old chemist chuckles, " Fine, " For all, from country " guy " to city " sport, " Form one compound nineteen-nine. NOTHING, " said Socrates, " is so verdant as a college Freshman. " But as it is only the green twig that has wrapped up within itself the possibility of growth, nothing warms my heart so much as to stand apart and see a long line of intrants file up to the Recorder ' s window, and to contemplate the stir that they will some day make in the affairs of men. This dictum of Socrates calls to mind the class of nineteen hundred and nine. The verdancy of that class was, perhaps, in the beginning very green. At least the soil in which it was planted was very rich, and its growth and accomplishments have surely been prodigiously famous. At its very birth the class gave evidence of an extraordinary flash of intelligence. Before the first week had closed it was walking by itself, and ere the month had ended it had run away with the Sophomore ballot- box. That same term it demonstrated its prestige in college affairs by winning the Freshman-Sophomore debate and in intercollegiate affairs by taking the Stanford Freshman football eleven into camp. During this half year " Chic " O ' Connor presided over the destiny of the class. The next term the reins of authority were handed over to Cunningham, who guided well. The one great accomplishment was the winning of the first Stanford-California Freshman track meet. Throughout the Sophomore year the class ship sailed along well with first McFarlane and then Kilgore at the wheel. The Sophomore Hop was a great success. The men ' s smoker was good and the Blue and Gold election developed into one of the most hotly contested campaigns ever witnessed on the Campus. During this year all college activities recruited freely from the ranks of nineteen-nine, and especially was this noticeable in all branches of college athletics. 85 At the beginning of its Junior year the class elected Cerf president. It was then that for the first time it really demonstrated how many people of real merit it actually contained. During the early part of the term the members of the class were made better acquainted by an informal dance. The real climax of the term, however, was reached in Junior Day. The festivities of this occasion met with a success unparalleled by anything before attained by other classes. From the curtain-raiser to the last round of the last waltz of the " Prom " the day was one of greatest jollity. Skook Cerf as president, Dave Christen as general chairman, and the two-score actors, authors, and committeemen all won their spurs and a generous applause from an appreciative college public. For the spring term Miss Violet Ottoman has been elected president. As this historical compendium goes to the printer the class is working assiduously upon the " Blue and Gold. " It also holds an informal dance, a men ' s smoker, and a banquet in contemplation, which affairs will bring it up to the dignity of its Senior year. If the future is to be measured according to past accomplishments, this Senior year will be the brightest in the history of the University. As a modest and very inadequate indication of the many laurels won by Naughty-nine, some mention may be made of a few of the many members who have been accorded honors in the different college activities. S6 In football, there are Cerf , Schaeffer, Stanton, Fanner, Glascock, and Cap- tain Bell. Those who have won their C ' s on track are Johns, Cowles, Hall, Paul, Cheney, Dozier, McNamara, Crossfield, Stout, Glazier, and Stanton (captain). In baseball, Myers, Miller, Hiester, and Schaeffer hold forth; in tennis, Powell and Long, while Paul Myers (coxswain) and Dean Witter ( captain ) are the pride of the ' varsity crew. Those who have won acknowledgment in dramatics are many. Among the foremost are Rose Schmidt, Irma Bromley, Maude Cleveland, Bell, Mikel, Stern, and Clark. In things journalistic and literary are Chris- tina Kristo, Hayes, Bell, Goldman, Wells, and Shipway. Debating is well represented by Hoover, Pillsbury, Kilgore, and Borden. Pre-eminent among the " Queeners " are Leggett and McKibben and the " Queens " But, ah ! there are over two hundred of them, and space will not permit. So here ' s to the class Touch glasses all around, Just as sort o ' signifyin ' That as brothers we are bound. But now I ' m gettin ' thirsty An ' the sparkle ' s on the wine, So here ' s three cheers an ' a tiger For good old Naughty-nine. 1909 Class Officers 1905-06 Cedric Cerf Violet Ottoman First Term President C.

MILITARY The University " Military " Band THE University of California is fortunate in having a band under the discipline of the Military Department. This has meant compulsory practice and thereby a consistent development that could hardly be expected from any other method of organization. Through the able directiron of Captain J. T. Nance, together with the efforts of a succession of enthusiastic student leaders, the band has won an important and respected place among the things musical in the University. During the fall term of 1907 the band was led by King Sweezy. It was he who for the first time taught it the valuable art of sight reading. Owing to the fact that King " got his degree " at Christmas, the band once more underwent a change of leadership and is now under the direction of D. R. Crane, ' 09. Chief Musician D. R.

Crossfield, ' 09 120 I Hoover Macneil Harrison FRIDAY evening, February 7, the annual Carnot debate Was held in Harmon Gymnasium before a packed house. California ' s team was one of the best she has put into a debate in years, being composed of veteran speakers Macneil, Harrison, Hoover, and Peixotto and every man acquitted himself with high honor. However, after a half hour of strenuous arguing in the anteroom, the judges awarded the medal to W. Shelton of the Cardinal team. The question was submitted to the two teams at 6 o ' clock in California Hall. Five minutes were allowed in which to choose sides. California ' s team split nicely, Macneil taking the affirmative, while Harrison and Hoover chose negative. Stanford ' s men took the negative and drew lots to put one man on the other side. Then two hours of work feverish, intense, fighting. Professor Thomas R. Bacon, presiding, at 8 o ' clock announced the qu estion before an audience of fifteen hundred people: " Resolved, That France should prepare to resume the policy of Del- casse in regard to Morocco at the expiration of the Algeciras Conventions. " Boyd and Macneil spoke for the affirmative, W. Shelton, Hoover, J. Shelton, and Harrison negative. Boyd of Stanford opened the arguments with an exposition of the Delcasse-France-Morocco situation. He was followed by W. Shelton, the winner of the medal, who argued that the policy was bad because France was socially and economically unfit for Delcasse ' s policy of colonial expansion and the wars that it would lead to. He assumed that if the policy were accepted it would mean a war between France and Germany. 122 He was the only man who was bold enough to disregard so important a phase of the question, but he did and won at it. In his rebuttal he was rhetorically eloquent, but no better in his logic. Hoover, California ' s first speaker, was next. He immediately launched into an argument as to the probability of a Franco-German war if this scheme of things were followed, assuming the social and economic damages that would result. All the speakers except W. Shelton used the same variety of argument either pro or con. Hoover was vehement in both his speeches, but probably lacked in coolness. Then came Sayre Macneil. Macneil faced the situation squarely and argued on the probability of a war, which had been threatened by Germany if Delcasse and his policy were not dismissed. Macneil, with bold, epi- grammatic sentences, characterized Germany ' s attitude as a bluff, and backed it up with sound logic. The audience was his from the start, and the applause which greeted him on arising for his rebuttal was the loudest accorded any one. With still more spirit he refuted the arguments advanced on the other side, and went to his seat with a good chance at the medal. Next was J. Shelton, suave, cool, logical. He spoke well and was also a favorite with the audience. Harrison, last for the evening, made rousing speeches, but his view of the question was slightly warped. He rather attacked Delcasse ' s particular mistakes than any fundamental defect in the general whole. However, he made his points forcibly, with strength of voice, manner, and words. Harrison might be compared favorably with the winner of the medal. California ' s men could be characterized by calling their style vigorous. They got to the point, expressed it in no mincing terms, and used little breath in rhetorical display. Stanford ' s men, the winners, were more polished and evidently pleased the judges better. Carnot Banquet The speakers on the Carnot team, with the alternate, E. M. Peixotto, were tendered a banquet by the Senate and Congress, acting in conjunc- tion. A sumptuous repast was provided, and was spiced by the toasts of various speakers. J. E. Rogers acted as toastmaster. Enthusiastic speeches were made concerning the debate and the debaters by Professor Bacon, Mr. Von Neumeyer, and various undergraduate banqueters. The members of the team also made speeches which looked to the long life of debating. Underbill Macneil Eisner Intercollegiate Debate THE 1907 California debating team won their debate, the first victory in three years. Accompanying victory was the satisfaction that they had won in a contest which was of the highest order. Arguments clashed, nobody dodged the question, none of the men missed opportunity to liven things up a bit by flinging wit, cleverly sarcastic, at their opponents. Most important of all, the evening ' s question was concerned with the administrative policy of President Roosevelt. Sayre Macneil was the first speaker for California. Macneil had debated in last year ' s Carnot and his good work was expected. His analysis was close and clean cut, his rebuttal was spirited. Macneil was preceded by Terrill, who outlined Stanford ' s argument in a speech which was smoother in diction but less logical than that of Macneil. McCulloch for the affirmative followed Macneil. Next came L. K. Underhill. Underhill was a " dark horse. " Debating dopesters had never heard of him in this line before and weren ' t looking for much from him. But he spoke energetically, had better arguments than any one, and his six or eight minutes of rebuttal were full of a wit and convincing power hard to excel. Underhill made good. Next came Herron, ' 07 Carnot medallist, from Stanford, and then Eisner. Eisner, too, has a Carnot medal. His debate proved that he deserved it. His keen reasoning power and natural rhetoric made him a thorough debater. A decision in favor of California was awarded by a unanimous vote from Judges Hall and Cooper of the Appellate Court and Professor McCurda of Stanford University. 124 THE Senate-Congress debate was won by the Congress, this making its fourth consecutive victory in the annual contests. A keen rivalry has existed between these two societies for several years. It was quick- ened considerably four years ago by the offer on the part of an Oakland merchant to give a trophy cup to the society first winning three consecutive intersociety debates. Last year the cup went to the permanent posses- sion of the Congress. The awarding of the cup, however, did in no way dampen enthusiasm among the debaters. When a question relating to the form of municipal government was announced for this year ' s annual match, the men chosen for the two teams fell to their task with a deter- mination to win which was no less marked than when the Keller cup was offered the winners. In many respects the debate was exceedingly interesting. Almost the whole discussion was extemporaneous. The Senate debaters forced the question to a matter of technicality, stoutly arguing for one interpretation of the nature and rapidity of the change in municipal government as described in the question, while the Congressmen found themselves con- strained to uphold a different interpretation or else forfeit their arguments to the other side. The Senate team, consisting of W. H. Pillsbury, A. R. Kilgore, .and H. D. Hoover, maintained that the formation of the commission form of city government was a normal tendency to centralization. The Congress- men, S. O ' Melveny, E. Snell, and J. E. Rogers, denied that this was the normal tendency. The work of the Senate team was sound in delivery, but their argument failed to satisfy the judges. A decision by a vote of two to one was awarded by Judges Professor Wells, Professor Roberts, and Mr. Max Thelen. The question was: " Resolved, That the present tendency towards centralization of municipal governments is to the best interests of the public. " i IT. Freshman-Sophomore Debate THE Freshman-Sophomore debate for this year stands out promi- nently in one particular at least. The Sophomores succeeded in winning a contest which had come to be considered a Freshman affair. This does not prove that the Freshman team was unusually weak. It shows that the Sophomores did better work than they had done pre- viously. The Freshman side of the debate, indeed, was very strong. The two lower classes chose this year to debate about Japanese immi- gration. S. O ' Melveny, H. A. Savage, and D. Lamont represented the Sophomore class, while the Freshman team was composed of G. C. Jensen, C. Gamble, and C. Kasch. All the men did splendid individual work, Savage and Jensen probably being a little superior to the others. Team work and a very slight advantage in material for argument won the debate for the Sophomores. In their opening speech the Freshmen undertook to prove that the Japanese immigrants were a menace to the American public, both morally and politically. This argument they followed closely to the end, attempt- ing to show at the same time that the standard of living among our lab oring classes was lowered by the presence of Oriental labor. The Sophomores answered their arguments with figures on immigra- tion and on the prices of labor that refuted the presumption that the Japanese could be a menace in matters of government. There were not enough of them to count. They then proceeded to argue that the Jap- anese already here were needed. They were doing work which otherwise would not be done. As proof of this fact they cited the conditions prevailing in many sections of the State, especially the fruit-growing districts, where Japanese labor is regarded by the growers and orchard owners as an abso- lute necessity to the proper handling of the crops. It was argued that they did the work which it was impossible to get white men to perform. The 1910 men insisted that not only as day laborers in the orchards and on the section gangs had the little brown man made his presence necessary, but that also as a household servant he has proved an efficient and reliable employe. Perhaps, after all, diplomats may now be able to reach a conclusion on Japanese immigration. 126 THE Senate reports this year as one of the most successful of its exist- ence. Our membership list has been filled by active workers, with many on the waiting list. Our purpose has been to give each member opportunity for profitable exercise in public speaking at every meeting, and its results are well attested by the enthusiasm shown. While our debate with the Congress last term went to the other side of the house, we are not at all discouraged over the showing made by either team of the results of the training afforded by the college debating societies.

Rogers THE history of the Students ' Congress Debating Society runs back over a period of fifteen years to the combination of the Durant Club and the Neolean Society. During this period of existence it has enjoyed continual prosperity. Bi-weekly meetings have been held and by a steady, gradual growth the society has strengthened its position as one of the permanent student organizations. The membership is not limited, the object being to allow room for all men who are anxious to learn how to think and speak in the midst of discussion.

This society holds fortnightly debates, arranges to a large extent for the interclass debate, and furnishes in all ways an unfailing field for lower-class eloquence. There is no society of its kind in college which is supported by a keener interest among the members. The membership is about fifty and the attendance is high. Conscientious work is done on the debates, and although they are not of the highest standard, they offer valuable oppor- tunity for training and practice for events which are of greater importance and which they will be called upon to support namely, the intercollegiate debates. The Freshmen realize the advantages offered them and enter into the work of their society with spirit. Officers First Term Second Term President R. W. Macdonald G. C. Jensen Vice- President C. S. Morbio C. S. Morbio Secretary-Treasurer .... H. H. McLellan I. Caplan Sophomore THE Sophomore Debating Society is this year a continuance of the Freshman society of last year. Its membership is practically the same. Its purposes and methods are practically as they were when it was named differently. The number in the society is slightly smaller than with the Freshmen, due, no doubt, more to losses incurred by recruiters from the Senate and Congress than by an appreciable decrease in interest. The Sophomore class is particularly proud of its achievements this year, having broken a precedent by putting out a team which won the Freshman-Sophomore debate. This victory was due in large measure to the work of the Sophomore Society. The officers elected in August held over for the whole year : President H. A. Savage Vice- President C. W.

Robinson 129 Retrospective WITH a year of debating behind us and with another year soon to begin, we may take our position as one of vantage from which we may review the events that have passed. Those who are most interested in that branch of college activity we call debating can find but little fault, even technical fault; on the other hand, they find much reason for self-congratulation. The personnel of debating was never worthier. Eisner, Macneil, Harrison, Underhill, and Peixotto are among those of stellar capacity. White, Robinson, Rogers, and other men from the classes of 1907 and 1908 have debated in the class debates and in the Senate-Congress tilts in a manner which places them among the quality of intercollegiate debaters. So much for 1907 and 1908. The Junior class presents Pillsbury, Hoover, Kilgore, and Thomp- son, promising that they will uphold rostrum traditions in the next year to come and prove the mettle that they have already shown in society debate and in intercollegiate contests. Sophomores and Freshmen, too, have shown the interest and diligence that they should show. In all, there are a hundred men who, if they have not been members of teams, have at least participated in other ways in helping to make the year a successful one. The year has been one of notable progress and activity among the debating societies in the University. The two Senior societies, the Con- gress and Senate, have been led by men who have instilled life and action into those bodies, and the lower class organizations have also excited more than usual interest. A diversion from the regular ofder of lower class debating as it has occurred for some years past was the winning of the interclass debate by the Sophomore class last fall. Nevertheless, this defeat did not dampen the Freshman ardor of 1911, and they have pushed along energetically in their forensic practice. The Senate and Congress societies have also shown a tendency to work for the highest interest of debating by getting together in joint meeting, at which factional animosities were laid aside for the sake of the whole. Furthermore, the year past was an eventful one in that the intercolle- giate team won the first victory for such a team in a half-dozen contests. It gave us the satisfied feeling, and also was pretty good proof that the winning team was better than its predecessors. Alas ! we lose the Carnot. But that does not prove that we had no individuals as good as those from Stanford. It was mighty close and the Stanford man won the toss. 130 .

Ryder, was a revelation in the line of spectacular performances in the Greek Theater. The novelty and mystery attached to the Orient and the interest connected with " Princess, " the elephant from the Chutes, drew forth an audience that taxed the capacity of the theater to its utmost. The Hindu atmosphere and stage conventions were preserved as far as possible. Their manner of salutation and peculiar custom of speaking to an imaginary person behind the scenes and repeating the supposed answers were retained, while the interior and exterior of a house were ably represented by means of a double stage and two rows of footlights. From the opening benediction to the closing ceremonies at the temple the audience was in a new land, listening to an Indian tale of love and hatred, crime and retribution. Few will forget Miss Isabel McReynolds ' s rendition of Vasantasena, her grace and skill, both in the love scenes with Charudatta and the trying situations with Sansthana, where ordinarily an amateur would be led to rant and rave. Her lines were filled with poetry and beauty and she made the most of them. 142 In the role of Sansthana, Sam Hume displayed his usual ability in completely losing himself in his part. For the evening he was the vil- lainous Indian prince, " brother-in-law to the king, " who stopped at nothing to accomplish his purposes. The most powerful scene of the play was the one in the garden where he finds Vasantasena and strangles her. The vividness of the portrayal held the audience spellbound. The part of the tutor to Sansthana was ably played by Van Phinney, while the acting of George Bell and Jack Britton as the police captains was the comedy note of the evening. With the " Little Clay Cart " was introduced the now popular " mob. " The fifth act opened with a presenta- tion of a religious festival, and the Hindu costumes of the throng passing back and forth, the Indian music with its clashing of cymbals, the flowers and dancing girls, and the conspicuous " Princess, " made the scene one to be remembered by all who witnessed it and hardly to be surpassed for spectacular effect. To Coach Garnet Holme is due a large measure of credit. To stage a production for the first time, and on such a scale, is no small task. From a literary and artistic standpoint, the production of the " Little Clay Cart " scored not an ordinary success in University dramatics. 143 O 1 k F COURSE aU Juniors in all times have thought their Junior Day and their Junior Play the " best ever. " Being Juniors, 1909 people think the same. The brightest spot of Junior Day was the Farce. " A clever play, written by a clever woman and per- formed by a well-balanced cast, " is Samuel J. Hume ' s characterization of the production. The Farce was written by Miss Christina Krysto; the Curtain Raiser by Earle Snell. They were produced at Ye Liberty Playhouse on November 30, 1907. The elite of college filled the theater and the fun-loving college audience thrilled at the well-chosen hits on college life. The play was the thing on that day of days. The plot was of a stock character but was very artistically handled. The action was very rapid, rapid enough to please the most blase collegian. In fact, it was a little too rapid, for the characters flitted in and out on the very heels of one another like ducks in a shooting gallery. The story was of Frank Goodwin, home from U. C. on a vacation; of his love affair with Dorothy Lawrence and of struggles of the pair to get the " old man " pacified to the match so that the necessary " brass " would be forthcoming to launch the marital ship. " Dot " and " Frank " were the lovable, adorable dream people of maiden ' s fancies and we -all loved them. But the plot could not move without others. The most important of these was Aunt Maria, who " has influence with dad " and is " just over twenty-seven. " She uses the influence with " dad, " believing that Frank is to elope with her, but he runs off with Dot in the early morning, leaving Aunt Maria, alias " Cousin Marie, " to be the " lovey-dovey " of Professor Baldwin, the philosophy tutor, who once " cinched " Frank in college and is now rewarded with a " wife " by that " forgiving " ( ?) youth. The secondary plot revolved around Paul Taylor, Frank ' s chum, and Kitty Goodwin, Frank ' s sister. The usual mistaken jealousy occurs, they quarrel over their respective attentions to Blanche Leroux and Dan 145 Christina Krysto Preston, and then " make up " but without the usual stage kiss. Louis Lawrence, a " prep " with a lispth, was the real comic part of the farce. He was always wanting to learn to smoke, to kisth his " affin- ity, " the gardener ' s daughter, and to escape his mother ' s mustard plasters. In the cast Louis was Dick Goldman, or, rather, Dick Goldman was Louis. It would be hard to tell which was Dick and which was Louis, for Louis was just Goldman with a lispth added to his speech. He could not have been chosen for a better part, for his diminutive size and luxurious actions gave a real life picture of a would-be college man. Irma Bromley as Aunt Maria rivaled Goldman for comic honors. She was not Miss Bromley on the stage, but a character which her friends had never seen. There are " pelicans " on the Campus and there have been " pelicans " on the college stage, but none have quite equaled Miss Bromley in her clever character part. Her " tee-hee " laugh and great joy at making an " eternity " will long be remembered by those who saw her play. The man ' s lead of Frank Goodwin was played by George Bell in customary heroic fashion. Bell had not much to do but to look handsome and he did that. If you do not believe it, ask the girls. And if you do not think that Rose Schmidt was also handsome in 146 the woman ' s lead of Dorothy Lawrence, ask the men. Miss Schmidt played in her usual vivacious and fascinating manner, and her every action was greeted with applause. Alice Southworth as the Mrs. Dan Preston, who went to the Ladies ' Home Journal to " find out how to keep a husband ' s love, " did some very high-class acting in portraying wifely woe. The part was small, but was one of the best presented. The remainder of the cast all had virtues, but space forbids the pleasure of telling about them. The cast: Frank Goodwin, U. C. ' 09 George Bell Paul Taylor, his chum Arthur Moulton General Benjamin Goodwin Elmer Breckenf eld Professor Baldwin Karl Vogeler Dan Preston, Frank ' s cousin Rossiter Mikel Louis Lawrence, a " prep " Richard Goldman Herr Friedrich Gummispiel, German tutor. . .Alfred Schultz Pierre Leroux, head gardener Claire Crossfield Drayman Clarence Black Dorothy Lawrence, engaged to Frank Rose Schmidt Kitty Goodwin, Frank ' s sister Frederique Roth Maria Hopen Irma Bromley Mrs. Goodwin Esther Phillips Mrs. Dan Preston Alice Southworth Mrs. Lawrence, Dorothy ' s mother Mary Henry Blanche Leroux Eva Blohm Sally, the maid Florence Jackson 1909 Curtain Raiser BINGO, " the curtain raiser, written by Earle Snell, was the story of an educated burglar, who, while eluding the " valorous " Berkeley police, found his way into an exclusive boarding-house and there posed as- an Irish lord, as a house cleaner, as a football hero in disguise who was hiding from the admiring co-eds, then as a co-ed, and finally as a captain of the Berkeley police. Bingo was a difficult part to portray, as can be judged from the numerous roles he had to fill, but Reed Clarke carried off the role with as much success as the ordinary actor of college life could be expected to attain. Gladys Armstrong as the new boarder, Miss Parker, who was being " rushed " by the Sororities, gave a pleasing interpretation of the socially ambitious Freshman girl. Kathryn Heinz as Isabelle, the servant maid from Ireland, to whom 147 Earle Snell Bingo posed an an Irish lord, gave a polished presentation of a real Irish house girl. Her brogue was perfect. The burlesque of the Berkeley police, which was headed by Clarence Cullimore and participated in by William Wells, Theodore Glazier, Paul Myers, and Malcolm Stone, was very amusing and showed the effects of the coaching of Garnet Holme, who staged the playlet. While the curtain raiser was not as strong in its plot as was the farce, yet it was highly entertaining and very well presented. The cast was : Bingo, an educated burglar Reed Clarke Captain of the Berkeley police Clarence Cullimore Miss Parker, the new boarder . Gladys Armstrong Isabelle, a servant girl Kathryn Heinz Sorority girls Miss Brown Florence Weeks Miss Case Violet Ottoman Miss Home Emily Disbrow Miss Jackson Betty Tracy Policemen Officer O ' Brien Theodore Glazier Officer Mulligan J. Warren McKibben Officer O ' Hooligan Malcolm Stone Officer O ' Mahoney Paul Myers Sergeant William Wells, Jr. 148 Senior Extravaganza ON TUESDAY evening, May 14, 1907, the Senior Class made its fare- well appearance in the footlights ' glare by presenting before an expectant audience a cleverly conceived extravaganza, " The Limit, " writ- ten by Miss Isabel McReynolds, ' 07, and Harold Clark, ' 07. It was dis- tinctly a class production, as those Seniors whose names were not among the cast were certainly a negligible quality. Considering the 1907 extrava- ganza as the work of students, it was a creditable piece and will be remem- bered among things of the same nature because of its very size. We may say it deserved the good-humored crowd that gathered in the classic theater under a high fog to witness the production. From the minute Balboa discovered the Pacific in those five historic steps, we were interested in the fate of the bold explorer and his devoted band. Miss Ethel Meredith, as the hamadryad, was a pleasant reaction from that first disastrous University meeting, and throughout the play was one of the charming features of the evening. Even in Warner ' s dress rehearsal of " The Little Mud Wagon " we found things to please and amuse us, while they recalled something we had seen before. The extravaganza was a fitting climax to 1907 ' s career in dramatics. In this department of University activity the class had not only done much, but had done it well. And it was a pleasant farewell. It left us with kind memories of the class that gave it and set a standard in student dramatics to equal which will require an effort worthy of the classes to come. 149 Garnet Holme English Club Plays WHEN " The Merry Wives of Windsor " was given on the stage of the Greek Theater by the English Club in October, 1906, we recognized for the first time the fitness of that classic setting for the presentation of student dramatics. Since that time the capabilities of the theater have been thoroughly tested. " The Little Clay Cart, " " The Senior Extravaganza, " and a midsummer production of " L ' Aiglon " by Miss Maude Adams each one covering a field all its own proved its adapta- bility to any class of serious dramatics. So last fall the English Club resolved upon an innovation for its third semi-annual play. This was nothing less than the presentation in one evening of three typical Old English plays, ranging in tone from the rol- licking Masque to the sacred Mystery. " Abraham and Isaac " This was the first of the three experiments and was the first produced, on October 5, 1907. The " Mystery " was of the fourteenth century and dealt with Abraham ' s temptation to forsake the Lord when called upon by the Voice to sacrifice his own son Isaac. The title parts were well carried by Sam Hume, ' 08, and Dave Levy, ' 08. Such a play, though well acted, could hardly be expected to take with its audience, which for its part showed small regret when the stage was cleared for the next. " Thersytes " This was in lighter vein and more to our own liking. It was taken from the sixteenth century and was designed to " declare howe that the greatest boesters are not the greatest doers. " Jack Britton, ' 10, made his debut as a college actor in the role of Thersytes a blustering braggart. While his swaggering, though somewhat overdone, was characteristic of the part, yet we could hardly suppress that sigh of relief at seeing the bully put to shame by Miles, an old soldier, whose character was creditably assumed by Van Phinney, ' 08. 150 " The Hue and Cry After Cupid " In the first two plays of the three presented that night we had stepped from the sublime to the ridiculous without disturbing the equilibrium of either. In the last of the three it was happily arranged that we should have a merry, fanciful Masque as a fitting climax to our evening ' s enjoyment. The " Hue and Cry After Cupid " was written by Ben Jonson in 1608 as a spectacle to grace a marriage ceremony. It was a pleasing thing and found merited favor with the crowd. The chorus work of the Treble Clef, together with a solo by Hal. Baxter, ' 08, added more than a little to the attractiveness of the performance. The three short plays justified the determination of the English Club to put University dramatics on their highest plane by encouraging the production of the legitimate. They also proved the possibilities of the drama in the hands of students, and served as another triumph for our wonderful Greek Theater. 151 Trelawney of the Wells TRELAWNEY OF THE WELLS, " which was presented in the Macdonough Theater on the evening of February 26, will probably suffer none by comoarison with any student dramatic production to be given this year. " Trelawney " is one of Pinero ' s happiest comedies, though its peculiar character renders it somewhat difficult of presentation by amateurs. In spite, however, of this drawback, and the fact of a very short time in which to rehearse, the comedy, under the coaching of Garnett Holme, made a very creditable performance. Ethel Meredith, ' 07, had the role of Rose Trelawney, in love with whom was Samuel Hume, ' 08, as Tom Wrench. Not less pleasing, though more successful in his wooing, was Van Phinney, ' 08, as Arthur Gower, Wrench ' s rival for the hand of Rose. The rest of the cast, whose good work aided materially in making the play an artistic success, included Elma Edwards, ' 08, Carl Whitmore, ' 08, Harold Baxter, ' 08, Rose Schmidt. ' 09, and Helen Hill, 10. The play this year was given under the auspices of the Prytanean Society and the proceeds were given to the Women ' s Dormitory Fund. 152 " Samson " SAMSON is judged by many the best production that has been given in the Greek Theater, and by all as one of the finest amateur per- formances they ever witnessed. Besides being a strong play in itself, it was admirably adapted to an open-air performance, and especially to the Greek Theater. It was very well played. Mr. Hotaling as Samson left nothing to be desired. He possesses a wonderful voice, which could be used to advan- tage in portraying the various emotions of the betrayed hero. Madam Greenleaf played the difficult part of Delilah with her customary grace and skill. Her slight accent only added to her charm. Madam Greenleaf also possesses a voice and knows how to use it. Among the Philistines the most prominent and noteworthy was the Prince Lamech, played by George L. Bell, ' 09. He acted well opposite Mr. Hotaling, and more is expected of him in the future in the line of college dramatics. As might be expected from the Biblical story, the play was spectacu- lar throughout and gave opportunities for costuming and effective " mobs. " The " mob " seems to have established itself as a feature of the Greek Theater productions, and in " Samson " came up to its former standard of giving reality and tone to the setting. The tragedy was presented under the management of the California branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni for the benefit of the Freshman Hall fund. The production was successful financially, and sincere thanks and gratitude are extended to the Alumni Association for their interest and unselfish work in behalf of the dormitories by both Faculty and students of the University. 15S The " Eumenides " THE " Eumenides " of Aeschylus, presented in th e Greek Theater by students of the Greek Department, was a production out of the ordinary, both from an educational and artistic standpoint. Although the words were perhaps not intelligible to the entire audience, still the dramatic and spectacular side was strong enough to hold attention through- out the play. The principal feature was the band of avenging furies clad in black, with snakes twining in their hair and about their arms. They are in pur- suit of the unfortunate Orestes in revenge for the murder of his mother, Clytemnestra, in justification of his father. The part of Orestes was a difficult one, ably portrayed by Doctor Allen. In flight from the furies Orestes seeks the protection of Athena and is granted a trial by her. The trial scene was very spectacular, the grey- bearded judges seated on one side with the furies opposing them on the other. Apollo is present to plead the cause of Orestes, while Athena declares that should the vote be a tie she will cast her ballot in favor of his acquittal. The moment of the counting of the votes was one of sus- pense, and the number of black and white balls being equal, Athena casts hers and Orestes is freed. The final scene was very beautiful. The procession of temple attendants enters, half bearing torches and half wreaths and scarlet cloaks which they drape about the furies. These now become kindly goddesses and are given a shrine at Athens. The play ends with the triumphal procession of Athena. 154 THE University Mandolin and Guitar Club, which is organized for the social and musical benefit of its members, spent a very successful season under the leadership of A. W. Black. The list of engagements was unfortunately rather short, being confined to University events, at which several very enjoyable numbers were rendered.

Frederick Wolle to California in 1905, things musical in the University have been imbued with new life and it has been demonstrated that the establishment of the chair of music was a wise measure. One of the enterprises which Professor Wolle originated was the series of symphony concerts in the Greek Theater rendered by an orchestra composed of some three score of the best musicians available in the community. The first season of these concerts was a splendid success financially as well as from the standpoint of high art, and vast throngs came from all the region about the bay to hear the interpretation of the great masterpieces in music. Due largely to the disorganization following the San Francisco dis- aster, 1907 was not as successful a year as the preceding one and the series carried on in the fall of 1907 proved a financial loss. A sponsor could not be found who would guarantee the necessary financial backing for the season of 1908, and hence the music committee of the University had to announce the temporary suspension of the concerts. The project has not, however, been abandoned, and both the committee and Professor Wolle are working hard to re-establish this splendid musical feature of the University with the beginning of next term. The Half Hour of Music ONE of the most widely popular of University functions is the " Half- Hour of Music " held in the Greek Theater every Sunday afternoon of the college year, when not interrupted by inclement weather. On pleasant Sunday afternoons this event attracts large crowds from the bay cities as well as strangers visiting in this region, and gives them a chance to get a pleasant impression not only of the Greek Theater, but also of the campus, the surroundings, and the University buildings, which impressions carried away to all parts of the world help to spread abroad the fame of the University and its wonderful center of musical life the Greek Theater. 158 The Treble Clef President Vice-President Secretary-Treasurer Executive Committee..

Wolle years ago the University orchestra was organized, and the first symphony by the new body of players was given in the Greek Theater on February 15, 1906. The programme of this first series of six concerts contained the first and fifth Beethoven symphonies, Mozart ' s in G minor, Schubert ' s in C, and movements from Haydn ' s Military and Mozart ' s Jupiter and E-flat symphonies. These concerts were well received by the people and much encouragement was received to continue the project. In the meantime the University chorus, organized in September, 1905, had not been idle, for rehearsals were in progress throughout the fall, winter, and spring, in preparation for a performance of Handel ' s " Messiah, " planned for April 26, 1906, as a finale to the first series of concerts. The disaster of April 18 changed many plans. It scattered the members of the chorus so that it was not until November 28, 1906, that the oratorio was sung by the two hundred and twenty-five singers. In the spring of 1907 they sang Rhienberger ' s " Christophorus, " and the last concert of the fall season of 1907 consisted of Liszt ' s Thirteenth Psalm and Strauss ' s " Heldenleben. " Since then the chorus has been studying Beethoven ' s Ninth Symphony. The orchestra has thus far given twenty-nine regular concerts, and has played in the following extra performances : In September, 1906, " The Midsummer Night ' s Dream " ; November, 1906, " The Messiah " ; January, 1907, Schuman-Heink recital; April, 1907, " The Eumenides " ; April, 1907, " Christophorus " ; October, 1907, Gadski recital. t The following soloists took part in the regular concerts: In March, 1907, Rosenthal played Chopin ' s first and Liszt ' s first concertos ; in April, 1907, Alexander and Mrs. Petschnikoff played, and again in July, in two concerts. No concerts have been given this spring. After the labor and expense of establishing this institution, it seems a pity to abandon it, if only for a season. The Greek Theater and the symphony concerts are a power for good. Thousands, I believe, have been uplifted not by the interpreta- tions of the orchestra conductor not by the strains alone of the familiar classics, but by reason of the ideal environment, probably unexcelled by any spot on earth. Here let music sing her sweetest, let art proclaim her noblest until the masses awaken to a full realization of the untold opportunities they possess in this temple in the Berkeley Hills. 162 PUBL CA ' (ONS The Blue and Gold PRE-EMINENT in the ranks of University journalism stands the Blue and Gold, a combination of University year book and Junior- class annual. Inaugurated by the class of 1875, each succeeding Junior class has perpetuated the custom until the book has been raised from a volume about the size of the directory of officers and students to its present dimensions, now ranking with the best college annuals in the land. Two distinct breaks appear in the life line of the Blue and Gold; the first in 1880, when that illustrious class of 1881 was bodily expelled from the University. The Zeta Psi Fraternity published a small volume, however, in place of the Junior class. Again in 1906, the great San Francisco fire found the 1907 Blue and Gold still in the shop and the entire edition was destroyed. A single fragmentary volume was made up, however, from proof sheets gathered by the editor, J. R. Gabbert, and is now carefully hoarded in the University Library. 164 Not only on the 1907 volume did the calamity of 1906 have a direct effect, but also on the books of 1908 and the present publication its aftermath has been seriously felt. How- ever, this volume has endeavored to fulfill its mission to the best of its ability that is, to publish a compre- hensive and interest- ing account of the past college year, and primarily to produce a work worthy of the University which it represents. California School of Design Staff Hader M. Levy Kettlewell Hall J. Nicholson M. Nutting Logan E. Pcnnington Daily Californian PROBABLY no college publication has experienced such varied changes of fortune as the Daily Californian. Only four years ago it was no more than a four-column paper, about on a par with most of the minor universities of the country. Within two years it has increased first to five columns and later to six columns. At that point its progress was arrested and in the fall of 1906 it again resumed its five-column size. Again for a short time in 1907 it defended its title to " the largest college daily in the United States. " Its latest vicissitude is still fresh in the minds of the students of the University. The Panic Edition, which was published for about two weeks, served its purpose by demonstrating to all the inability of the college public to do without the daily paper.

Its articles, many of them the contri- butions of Faculty members, are referred to and quoted by the leading scientific magazines of the East. Besides its high standing, the journal has the distinction of being the only paper of its kind west of the Rocky Mountains. Its pages are well interspersed with cuts, which materially aid in the attractiveness of the editions. First Term Editor Harry M. Hall, ' 08 Managing Editor Roy A. Lind, ' 09 Academic Editor M. C.

It has followed the model of such books as " The Yale Record " and " The Harvard Lampoon. " There have been no misfortunes to mar the smooth- ness of its course during the four years of its existence. Of the five editions now published during the year, one is edited entirely by women students of the University and is sold during the festivities in Hearst Hall on February 22.

Assistant Manager THE destruction of the 1907 Blue and Gold in the San Francisco fire left the class of 1907 without any permanent record of its college career. It was to supply this need that the class voted to publish a small volume devoted entirely to the affairs of the 1907 class, and J. R. Gabbert, the editor of the unfortunate Blue and Gold, was unanimously chosen to edit the Senior Record. Soon afterwards a Record was also published by the 1906 class, reciting the events of its closing days in college, the record of which was to have appeared in the 1907 Blue and Gold. The 1908 class has followed the example of its predecessors in pub- lishing a Senior Record for itself. Editor V. V. Phinney Manager J. P. Shaw Athletics P. K. Yost Debating.

Burke Associated Students IT CAN be truthfully said, and is indeed generally recognized, that very few universities have such a well-framed and useful system of student- body control and government as California. The efforts of the founders of the association were to throw the largest possible measure of responsi- bility on the students. Succeeding years have developed more and more the practice of student self-government and concentrated far greater powers in the central student body. The Associated Students now exercise supreme control in practically every activity which is made an organized effort by any body of the students. Athletics are, of course, the largest sphere of interest, but debating, chess, and student musical organizations are all under their supervision. In addition to these, the Associated Stu- dents, through its undergraduate student affairs committee, regulates questions involving the relations of students with the Faculty. In the conduct of athletics large financial outlays are required, and to handle these a salaried graduate manager is employed. He formerly attended personally to every branch of sport, but an innovation has been made this year whereby an undergraduate assistant manager is appointed to attend to the details of conducting each s port. The weekly reports of these managers are to be bound, and will serve as valuable records in years to come. Every student of the University is eligible to become a member of the Associated Students on payment of the yearly due of one dollar. The undergraduate officers are chosen at an election held in April of each year. The graduate manager is elected for a two-year term. The central governing body of the Associated Students is the executive committee, which is composed of the above mentioned officers, together with an undergraduate athletic representative, a representative of the Faculty and of the Alumni. The athletic representative is chosen semi-annually by the committee, while the Faculty and Alumni representatives are appointed by the President of the University. The membership of the committee for this year has been: 172 President James M. Burke, ' 08 Vice-President F. M. Twitchell, ' 08 Secretary J. W: McKibben, ' 09 Graduate Manager O. F. Snedigar, ' 06 Athletic Representative W. K. Tuller, ' 08 Alumni Representative . . S. M. Irving, 79, Jas. K.

Alvord, ' 08 Football J. E. Allen, ' 08 In addition to these officers, the general work of control and manage- ment falls on seven committees appointed by the president of the Asso- ciated Students. These committees, with their members, are as follows : J. Warren McKibben Intercollegiate Agreement Committee E. W. Stow, ' 08, first term, chairman ; P. K. Yost, ' 08, second term ; E. J.

And the outcome has been progress in every line. The women ' s room in North Hall has been so changed that it really does to a certain extent fulfill its original aim of a place of rest. The note rack, which made it rather the most transient, crowded spot on the campus, has been moved upstairs; new lockers have been installed, the woodwork has all been repainted, and curtains, grass rugs, sofa pillows, and flowers have all found a place, with some one to look after them and keep them in order. The year has also witnessed the affiliation of the Equestrian Club and new supplies in Hearst Hall, as well as many other minor changes. The affairs of the association this year have been managed by the execu- tive committee, composed as follows : President Annie Dale Biddle, ' 08 First Vice-President Jane Alice Hawk, ' 08 Second Vice-President Mattie Zander, ' 08 Treasurer First term Florence Goddard, ' 09 Second term Gladys Armstrong, ' 09 Secretary Lucile Daniels, ' 10 Dean of Women Lucy Sprague President Mask and Dagger Ida Cowley, ' 08 President Mandolin and Guitar Club Sybil Marston, ' 10 President Treble Clef..

The question of moving downtown again is now being agitated, since with the moving of business downtown the advantages of the club are available to fewer and fewer of its members. In its new quarters the club expects to have, with the exception of sleeping apartments, every convenience loung- ing room, reading room, dining room, billiards and pool, card room, maga- zines and newspapers, and in general to make itself a proper gathering place for California people in San Francisco. The club was founded to meet just such a want. At the 1900 banquet the night before the football game in 1902, the need of a California ren- dezvous in San Francisco was discussed. A committee appointed then, acting with a similar committee from the class of ' 97, arranged for a monthly lunch for all California men. The lunches began early in 1903 and continued with increasing size and success until December, 1903, when the present club was formed. The first permanent quarters selected were at Powell and Geary streets and the club was formally opened April 4, 1904. The membership steadily increased, making it necessary to seek more commodious quar- ters, which were taken up in the Dana Building, at Stockton street and Union Square avenue in September, 1905. Here the club continued to prosper until the disaster of 1906 wiped out its entire plant. By June 16 of the same year, however, the present club house was opened. In the third location the club has continued to grow quietly, but steadily, and has developed a healthy club spirit among its members. Officers President Thos. S.

The association is planning the construction of an Alumni Hall on the campus and the funds for such a project are increasing rapidly. The alumni secretary has an office in California Hall, and through this office the association endeavors to keep closely in touch with the graduates of the University. The work of the office during the past year has been in the hands of Gurden Edwards, ' 07, who has labored diligently and efficiently to further the ends of the organization. The following officers and members compose the Alumni Council: President W. B. Cope, ' 83 First Vice- President Leander Van Orden, ' 90 Second Vice-President Mrs. G. B. Childs, ' 85 Treasurer J: K.

This year there are many students from Stanford and the Eastern universities who are members of the Association. A reception was held early in the first semester at the Alpha Omicron Pi House to meet these students from other colleges. The first regular graduate dance was given in November at Hearst Hall.

C. A. A higher purpose and a broader influence has been realized in the effort to make the association a genuine and necessary part of the University ' s activities. During the early part of the fall term Don Magruder of the University of Missouri was the general secretary of the organization. He put the experience of an all-around college man into the office and gave impetus to the new and more liberal spirit that the Y. M. had already begun to show. After his resignation because of ill health the work was carried forward under the able direction of Gordon B. Todd, ' 08. First Term President E. Ord Slater, ' 08 Vice-President E. J.

The work of the association in Berkeley has been broadened during this last year so that it reaches out to bring the women of the University to the highest level of womanhood. It does this through its meetings and through its classes in Bible study and social services. The social-service department is divided into two parts, the educational and the extensions, so that our college women are being brought face to face with the great social needs about them and are gaining experience in practical work while in college.

Burke THE past year has proven a milestone in the progress of the Newman Club of the University, for the dream of the society has been realized in the acquisition of an elegant clubhouse and a resident chaplain, whose sole duty is to look after the welfare of the Catholic students in the University. Organized in 1899, the club had for eight years struggled along in the face of adverse circumstances, without a regular meeting place and without a director who could devote all his time and energy to its interests, until last year, when the acquisition of the spacious clubhouse at 2630 Ridge road put the society firmly on its feet. In its chaplains, Reverend Thomas V. Moore and Reverend Thomas L. O ' Neill, the society has found directors of the highest efficiency and most congenial character. Both are of the Paulist community and recently from New York.

Ground was broken for the clubhouse on the day before Commencement, 1902, and by the first of the following December the building was completed. Since that time several additions have been built, so that at the present time it is a large, well-organized, and well-furnished club, housing a dozen or so mem- bers of the Faculty and furnishing meals to a hundred of them every day. Membership has grown with rapid strides, and includes not only members of the Faculty, but many of the prominent business and professional men of the community. The management is in the hands of a board of seven directors, elected annually. The directors for the ensuing year are: President Professor Irving Stringham Vice-President Professor Lincoln Hutchinson Secretary and Treasurer Professor M. W. Haskell Professor M. E. Jaffa Professor Andrew C. Lawson Professor Alex. Lange 181 R. A. Balzari Big C Society WEDNESDAY evening, February 12, the " Big C " men of the University met at the Sigma Nu House and formally organized the Big C Society, to include as active members all students in the Univer- sity who have obtained the athletic emblem, and such honorary members as may be elected. The purpose of the society is primarily to promote the interests of athletics in the University by unifying and harmonizing the various branches of the activity and also to arrange for the proper reception and entertainment of outside athletes when they are guests of the University. The society has been formally recognized by the executive committee of the Associated Students. The officers elected were: President R. A.

With increasing number of members this aim was enveloped in the larger aim of dramatics, which was meant to include all literary interests. Thus in the fall of the term of 1906 the English Club became the Dramatic Association of the University, embracing all the smaller of such associations. It has become the policy of the Club to produce one play each semester, the play always being a comedy or tragedy that has gained the sanction of classic. The last play was a series, being " The Mask, the Hue and Cry After Cupid. " Interlude: " Phersytes, " and the " Mystery of Abraham and Isaac. " The faculty members of the English Club have been invaluable assistants in aiding the Club to establish its new policy.

The object of the clubs is to teach German conversation and to spread a love for German literature among the students. Meetings are held fort- nightly at the homes of the different members, and the evenings are usually devoted to the singing of German songs, to playing German games, and to lectures by men prominent in circles of German scholarship. The mem- bership of the clubs is very large. This may be regarded as one of the greatest proofs of their success. The largest and most important of the German Clubs is the organiza- tion known as " der Deutsche Verein. " This club is under the direct supervision of the German Department and is in the nature of an honor society, its members being recommended by the Faculty. Deutscher Verein Officers President Mr. L.

It meets twice every month at the homes of its members. It is composed largely of .-students who wish to acquire facility in speaking French. The conversations at these meet- ings are exclusively in French. Games are also carried on in French, in which each member takes a part. Short French plays or selections from Moliere ' s comedies are often given. Every effort possible is made to have each individual gain practice in speaking the language. Short addresses in French are given occasionally by members of the Faculty. They lend interest to the soirees and train the ear to the hearing of pure French. This year the club will give a play at the beginning of the second semester. President H. H. Hart, ' 07 Vice- President H. L. Bruce, ' 08 Secretary-Treasurer Miss A. Myrtle Allen, ' 08 " El Circulo Hispanico " THE Spanish Club, which was reorganized last semester, is now known as " El Circulo Hispanico. " Its object as stated in its constitution is to promote conversation and a taste for Spanish literature. Membership is open to all who speak and are interested in the Spanish language, and is not limited to students of the University alone. President Dr. Carlos Bransby Vice-President W. S. Duggin, ' 09 Secretary-Treasurer Miss Kathryn J. Burns, ' 08 185 E. V. Bray THE list of athletic activities of the University was augmented at the beginning of the present academic year by the inauguration of a new organization of University students, which, with the aid of Professor Magee and some other members of the Faculty, and under the guidance of a com- petent instructor, has developed into a powerful and well-organized club. Its name, the Polydeucean Club of the University of California, owes its origin to Polydeuces, the mythical founder of the science of boxing. The purpose of the club, as its name implies, is to enliven an interest in boxing among the students of the University and to afford an opportunity to those students who are interested in manly defense to obtain competent instruc- tion in this activity and in allied sports. Members of the University primarily, and such other persons as are duly elected, constitute the club ' s membership. Active membership has thus far been limited to the men of the student body. At first the mem- bership was limited to thirty, but the large number of applications made necessary an extension of membership, and the club now has fifty names on its roll. The powers of government of the club are divided into two depart- ments the executive and the disciplinary. The executive power is vested in a president, a vice-president, and a secretary-treasurer. The disciplin- ary department consists of a tribunal of five members, in whom is vested full power of reproval, suspension, and dismissal. Officers President E. V.

Brignole, ' 09 1S6 THE Boating Association of the University, commonly known as the Boat Club, is one of the oldest athletic organizations in the Univer- sity. In the season of 1906 the president of the Boat Club, with the assistance of President Wheeler, the Faculty, the Alumni, and the student body, succeeded in raising enough money to purchase three eight-oared shells from Cornell University. The advent of the " eights " caused such a boom in rowing circles that the B. A. U. C. was no longer able to adequately care for the intercollegiate crew races, and this phase of rowing was taken over by the executive committee of the A. S. U. C. The Boat Club now occupies commodious quarters on the ferryboat Amador, which lies in Sessions Basin on the Oakland Estuary. This ferry- boat has been refitted to suit the needs of rowing men and makes an ideal boathouse. All the racing shells that formerly belonged to the Boat Club have been turned over to the A. S. U. C. for the use of the crews. The Boat Club is now essentially a place where persons fond of aquatic sports can enjoy themselves, whether trying for the crews or not. The Boat Club is making additions to its fleet from month to month, and is now in possession of two single sculls, a canoe, a pair-oar and two four-oared barges.

Bailey FOR students who are interested in biological questions or pursuing pre-medical studies, the Harvey Club offers an opportunity for closer association with fellow students and instructors along lines of common scientific interest. The meetings are held the first and third Thursdays of each month. The second meeting of the month is held at the home of some member and is devoted to the consideration of various biological questions of interest. Papers prepared by members are read and discussed. At the first meeting of the month, usually held in the lecture room of East Hall, some one prominent in scientific or medical circles delivers a lecture to the Club. The lectures are generally well attended and attract considerable attention in other departments. They are open to the public. This year six lectures have been delivered, as follows: 1907. October 9 Professor R. O. Moody. Subject: " The Making of a Physician. " November 7 Dr. A. W. Lee. Subject: " Graphic Art in Science. " December 4 Professor J. Loeb.

Martin, ' 08 188 -SCIENTIFIC; SOWING " IRRIGATION - THE Agricultural Club dates back for its origin to the year of 1902, at which time a group of students in the University of California, who were desirous of instituting an association, or club, for the advance- ment of agricultural interest among the students of the College of Agricult- ure and among all other agriculturists throughout the State of California, met and formed the present society. This club has grown from that time, till now it is one of the most prominent of student organizations. It is important especially as it fur- nishes the means by its organization of showing the State Legislature and citizens just what the Agricultural College work has been in the past, what it is at the present time, and somewhat of what it may be in the future. It is needless to state that the Agricultural College is at the present time of the most importance of all the colleges of the University of Cali- fornia, and to judge from the rapid strides it has made in the past few years, it will continue to occupy its position of prominence. The Agricultural Club (which holds frequent meetings during the college year for discussion) is interested in getting an appropriation of $250,000 from the State Legislature with which to start an Agricultural Building, which at present the college needs above everything else. The club each year holds a banquet, at which the members and Fac- ulty of the college gather to enjoy themselves and to discuss the questions relating to the college. The officers for the past year are as follows : First Term Second Term President Carlo A. Newbery, ' 08 R. D. Stephens, Jr., ' 08 Vi ce-President Austin M. Burton, ' 08 Ernest W. Killian, ' 09 Secretary Malcolm Stone, ' 09 William B. Parker, ' 09 Treasurer M. T. Emmert, Jr., ' 09 David N. Morgan, ' 09 R . D. Stephens, Jr. Sergeant-at-Arms Parker Talbot, ' 09 J. Walter Schmitz, ' 09 189 The Students Co-operative Society THE Students ' Co-operative Society (commonly known as " The Co-op " ) is an organization that has made itself indispensable to college life. Originally conceived with an idea of furnishing students with college text books and supplies on a co-operative basis, the Co-op has become more than a book store and is now the center of activity on the campus. The Co-op, as before stated, has for its prime object the procuring of college text books and supplies in the shortest time possible and at the lowest rates. It was organized for the service of students, but the general public is also welcome to the advantages it affords. The modus operandi of the Co-op follows the most democratic lines possible and yet consistent with good business management. In the past this has amounted to a student and Faculty body of directors and the employment in the Co-op as clerks of a number of deserving students who were working their way through college. Membership in the society is limited to students, who pay a dollar membership fee, which entitles them to rebate privileges on purchases made during the year. The total amount of sales during the year 1906-07 was $65,000, of the year before $58,000, and the receipts this year are running in advance of any year thus far. Secretary and Manager James R.

Car- ner, ' 10. 19 0 IN THE short space of two years there has become established in the University an organization which already gives promise of becoming one of the foremost of the honorary clubs. This is the Economics Club. In the Department of Economics the University is fortunate in having a Faculty of men of exceptional quality. It is not illogical, then, that enough interest should be aroused among the students in economics to give life to a club devoted to the study of economics and the closely allied political questions. The active interest shown in the club during the past year well bears out this conclusion. But a still more convincing and mani fest proof of the club ' s standing is to be realized in the work it has mapped out for the immediate future. It has undertaken to investigate labor con- ditions in California, and toward this end will collect a series of reports made by members of the club on the various aspects of the labor question in different parts of the State. This definite plan of work will be carried out until some degree of completeness is attained by its compilation of reports. It is an undertaking worthy of the club and of the University. During the past year the following subjects have been taken up by the club in the form of reports by the different members : " The City and the Citizen, an Economic Interpretation, " by James E. Rogers; " The Webster-Ashburton Treaty of August 9, 1842, " by Hugh T. Gordon; " Economic Interpretation of Modern Wars, " by Eustace M. Peixotto; " Economic Disasters of British Rule in India, " by G. Mukerji; " The Direct Primary Nominating Systems, " by Professor G. H. Roberts.

The University of California Rifle Team THE University of California Rifle Team is composed of the ten men and the two alternates who have proven themselves to be the best marksmen in the Military Department of the University. The team for 1906 and 1907 was an exceptionally good one, and, although it engaged in competitions against several strong teams, it was everywhere successful. The seven colleges who entered the intercollegiate match shot at their own ranges. The scores were sealed and sent to Judge W. H. Waste, who announced the winner. The California team not only won the match, but its manager, J. M. Montgomery, made 43 out of a possible 50, which was the highest individual score. The teams which entered, together with their scores, are as follows: University of California Score 402 University of Nevada " 392 Utah Agricultural College " 382 State College of Washington " 358 Mississippi Agricultural College " 348 State University of Iowa 341 West Texas Military Academy " 305 The medals for the individual match were awarded as follows: J. M. Montgomery, ' 08, first prize, a gold medal, for the highest aggregate score, making a total of 503 out of a possible 600, or 83.83 per cent. E. S. Brown won the second prize, a silver medal, for the second aggregate score 498 out of a possible 600, or 83 per cent. 192 THE Mining Association of the University of California was organized in February, 1902, by the upper-class men in the College of Mining. The purpose of the organization is to create and foster a spirit of good fellowship among its members and to bring them into .-closer touch with their instructors and with men outside the College world who are engaged in the mining industry. Also opportunity is given for the members to gain a better knowledge of practical matters by attendance at lectures given before the Association by many prominent engineers. The Association maintains a library for the use of its members and has been given a room in the Hearst Memorial Mining Building for use as a library and reading room. First Term President R. W.

Courses in water color sketching, pen and ink sketching, and clay modeling, introduced into the department in 1906 through the efforts of the association, are in a flourishing condition. The association lunches, held at midnight in the Architectural Build- ing, tend to bring the members into more intimate social relations. The second annual exhibition of the work of the department was held by the association in the Architectural Building January 15 to 18, 1908. Over two hundred plates were hung and a number of original European sketches of architectural subjects kindly loaned. Officers President N. W. Shaw, ' 08 Secretary and Treasurer E. H.

THE Ancient and Sacred Order of Chemistry Fiends was established in 1902 by a group of women taking chemistry. At that time these women were in a very small minority and it took considerable courage for them to brave the hordes of men that swarmed the Chemistry Department. Moreover, the Chem ' Building then had but few attractions. Since the founding of the Order, however, matters have changed decidedly for the better. The Fiends have made the Chemistry Building a place beloved by both themselves and their friends. In what other building on the Campus could we have banquets, spreads, candy-pulls, or initiations? Just imagine a candy-pull in East Hall, a banquet in the Agricultural Building, or an initiation in the Botany Building! No, these pastimes lose their enchantments except when connected with the mystic laboratory, sky-parlor, or basement of the Chemistry Building. And then the best part of it all is, the Professors of the Chemistry Department enjoy laying aside their dignity, occasionally, to join us in our frolics and thus become better acquainted with the students under their charge. There are now about thirty women in the Order. The officers are : Mother Fiend ............................ Mrs. E. Booth Arch Fiend .................. Miss Elizabeth Kinnear, ' 08 Scribe ....................... Miss Marjorie Johnson, ' 10 Custodian of the Coffee Pot ....... Miss Ruth Forsyth, ' 09 Elizabeth Kinnear Adolph Teichert Civil Engineering Association THE Civil Engineering Association was organized by the upper class men of the College of Civil Engineering, October, 1902, and it has always enjoyed a high degree of prosperity. The association aims to give its members a knowledge of civil engineering methods and practice by discussions of practical problems, and by having addresses dealing with practical subjects by prominent men of the profession. Knowledge along scientific lines is also furthered by frequent trips to engineering works where actual construction is going on. It is invariably the rule that these trips are pleasant and profitable, the engineer in charge generally directing and explaining the features of the plant, sometimes even entertaining the members of the association socially. The organization also tends to bring into closer harmony the Faculty and alumni of the University, and brings its members into closer social relationship with each other. The association has a technical library and reading room in the Civil Engineering Building, and this year special effort has been made to increase the number of engineering reference works, thereby enhancing the value of the library to the student, Officers First Term Second Term President Harry M.

The present Associated Electrical and Mechanical Engineers is the result of their efforts. Active membership is confined to Seniors and Juniors in the College of Mechanics, there being enrolled at present twenty-nine Seniors and forty-seven Juniors. There are also thirty-two associate members from the Sophomore class. Several lectures by prominent engineers and business men are given each term. One of the most interesting this year was by John A. Britton, general manager of the Pacific Gas and Electric Corporation (also a Regent of the University). He spoke on " Engineering Possibilities in Califor- nia. " Trips to power stations around the bay are always well attended and prove worth while. The companies extend every courtesy to the members of the association ; their engineers are on hand to make necessary explanations; sometimes they even furnish passes for transportation. Once a year the association, with the Faculty and some invited guests, gather around the banquet table. This year ' s banquet was held October 22, 1907, at Idora Park. The sixty who were present agreed that it is hard to beat a banquet for promoting a genuine feeling of fellowship. First Term President H. H. Brown, ' 08 Vice-President J. B.

Besides the regular meetings, an active interest is taken by the members in all exhibitions, both private and public, and in lectures upon subjects of Art. The studios of prominent California painters are visited for the study of their works. This semester the circle is studying the German, Dutch, and Flemish masters of Art, and the study thus far has proven very interesting and valuable. The officers of the organization are as follows : President Florence Morgan, ' 08 Secretary Rose Hizar, ' 08 The Minnehaha Club THE Minnehaha Club is a student organization whose purpose is the impartial study of the liquor problem. The club is allied with the National Intercollegiate Prohibition Association and the Somerset branch of the Young Women ' s Christian Temperance Union. Its object is to pro- mote a wide study of the temperance movement along broad and dispas- sionate lines. This is accomplished by fortnightly meetings for reports and discussions and by a series of oratorical contests with representatives of other colleges. The general subject for this year ' s study has been " Social Welfare and the Liquor Problem. " The society has a growing membership, and this year, for the first time, has had a secretary resident on this Coast. Membership in the organization is open to any one, but students only are allowed to partici- pate in the oratorical contests. President Elsie Shearer, ' 08 Vice-President A. G. Fassett, ' 10 Secretary Ludwig Rehfuess, ' 10 Treasurer Kathrina Banks, ' 06 198 Lk- Uf Ci SINCE its organization in 1901 the John Marshal Law Club has been a source of great benefit to law students. It has maintained a court for the discussion of mooted questions on principles of the common law, constitutional law, and equity. The chief purpose of the club is to keep a lively interest aroused in problems of the law outside of regular class work. Heretofore an effort has been made to have as large a membership as possible, but that idea has changed and it has been seen that in small organizations the benefits derived are greater. In accordance with this change the Sword and Scales, a club of similar character, has been organ- ized, and a reorganization of the John Marshall Club was thus necessitated. Under its new constitution meetings are held fortnightly, as before, while greater care is exercised in presenting arguments before the court. Membership is limited to Senior and graduate students of the University pursuing the professional curriculum in law. Officers Chancellor D. C. Button, ' 06 Clerk I. P. Aten, ' 08- Bailiff.. ..F. A.

After the reading a discussion takes place, in which any active member may take part. The subject for this year is " The Finality of the Christian Religion. " The discussion of the year ' s subject will be based upon the noteworthy book of the same title written by Geo. Burman Foster, Professor of the Philosophy of Religion in the University of Chicago.

Thus far California has not lost a single tournament. Last year the score was 7 l 2 to 2 l 2 , each college being represented by seven men. Only three of last year ' s players are back this year,;but there is much promising material from which to develop a team. Interest in chess is kept up in the fall term by competition for the Shreve Chess Cup, which is at present among the trophies in the University library. Each year the winner of the cup has his name and class engraved upon it. So far it has been won by R. L. Egenhoff in 1905, C. J. Gibbs in 1906, and R. B. Cooke in 1907. The club is managed by a chess committee, which is appointed by the president of the Associated Students, assisted by the chairman of the last year ' s committee. Any student interested in chess is eligible to member- ship, for which a nominal sum is charged for dues. The members meet at Stiles Hall. Besides the tournament with Stanford, it is customary to have tour- naments with members of the Faculty and with chess clubs around the bay. Committee R. L. Egenhoff, ' 08, Chairman R. B. Cooke, ' 09 N. D. Baker, ' 09 201 League of the Republic THE American university has long been a dead center in democracy; the European university has always been the stronghold of liberty. The Russian student today is giving his life for freedom; the American student is asleep and fails to realize his responsibility as an integral part of the government. The League of the Republic contemplates a crusade that shall arouse the American student from his apathy to a realization of his personal interest and responsibility in the great struggle now being waged between the forces of graft and the advocates of political purity and honesty. Its purpose is not academic, but concrete and practical, and it endeavors to bring the student into contact with practical political life, for which pur- pose it utilizes political campaigns, brings men of special experience to speak before its meetings, and presents real, concrete problems and prac- tical work to its members. In short, it makes use of the laboratory method as much as possible. The League was organized in the University of California in April, 1907, and its progress during the first year of its existence has been very encouraging. Its intention is to establish a chapter in every university in the country and to affialite with similar organizations already existing. Officers First Term Second Term President A. H.

Hoover, ' 09 202 FORMERLY the College of Commerce Club was an organization before which business men, authorities in their particular lines, lec- tured, thus giving the members an insight into the practical as well as the theoretical side of business life. Later, however, this first purpose of the Club was taken over by the College of Commerce when it established the course Economics A. Since then the work of the organization has very largely been to provide for occasional trips to the various manufacturing and industrial concerns about the Bay. All members of the Club are allowed to go on these trips and to make a first-hand study of the business methods pursued by the estab- lishments visited. The success of these visits has been very materially aided by the great courtesy always shown by the management of the different concerns. Near the end of each college year the Club holds a banquet at which past achievements and future plans are discussed and general good fellow- ship is promoted. Membership, which formerly included only students in the College of Commerce, has now been opened to all students in any way interested in commercial problems. The officers for the year are: President Lesley Einstein, ' 08 Vice-President Donald English, ' 09 Secretary-Treasurer Herbert Gundelfinger, ' 09 Lesley Einstein THE Social Progress Club was organized in 1904. Its object is the study of economical problems of today, with especial attention to the subject of socialism. Regular meetings are held fortnightly, at which books are read and problems discussed. In addition to this, the club is frequently addressed by prominent lecturers, to which the public is invited. These addresses are followed by an informal discussion, in which visitors are urged to take an active part. Speakers such as Jack London, the Reverend J. Stitt Wilson, and George Stirling, the author of " The Wine of Wizardry, " have served to popularize the club in college circles. President , A. E.

Of late years a Freshman victory has become a habit, for not since the Class of ' 09 was the cause of a victorious serpentine has a Stanford baby crossed the California goal. And now the ' 11 men have done their task, and have done it in such a manner as to start this habit well along the road toward becoming a tradition. The game itself was a whirlwind affair. The California pack was upon the ball at every turn, and, when the oval was once in the hands of the backs, their bewildering passes and speedy dashes utterly wrecked the Stanford defense. So well did the California men play as a team, it would indeed be difficult to point out any particular stellar performers, but among those most conspicuous in the backfield must be mentioned Dwiggins, Solinsky, Jackson, and Captain Hatch. In the pack Jordan used his great weight and strength to tremendous advantage, and in his dash to the goal for California ' s second try proved that he had speed in addition to his other qualities. A word must be said in commendation of the Stanford men, for never 209 did a Cardinal team show a better spirit and play a harder losing game than did the team of 1911. Cline and Fletcher in the backfield were responsible for a large share of Stanford ' s gains, while among the for- wards Dole and Woodville were towers of strength. Six thousand spectators had gathered on the bleachers, and the rooting was at its height when the teams made their appearance. The welcome each received showed that neither would lack moral support in the coming struggle. At 2:30 o ' clock Renouf kicked off for California. Brown returned and the first scrum was formed in California territory. Then began the succession of long runs, lightning passes, and accurate kicks into touch that swept the ball resistlessly down the field. Within ten minutes after the kick-off Swartz had earned the first try of the day. Others followed in quick succession, and when the half time was called the Blue and Gold led by a 16 to score. Three more points were added in the second period, the final score being 19 to a most satisfactory state of affairs. Then followed a serpentine that every Freshman will remember with quickening pulse. In and out across the field the hilarious column of Blue and Gold wove its way, and when part of the elation of victory had found an outlet, the band led the way past the Agricultural Building to the flagpole, where a thousand loyal Californians, with bared heads, sang 210 " Hail, Blue and Gold, " while the great silken " C " was lowered to the ground. Thus ended a satisfactory day.

The score when the timekeeper ' s gun sounded was 21 to 11, but these figures come far from ade- quately showing the merits of the teams. Never did a California team strive with more determination nor fight with better spirit than did Captain Tuller and his men, and not until the last minute of play had expired did the cheer- ing thousands in the stands lose hope of victory. The game was replete with desperate rallies and crises, and the result was in doubt until the very end. The California rooters occu- pied the west bleachers, and act- ually outnumbered the Stanford supporters on their own field. Clad in capes of blue and gold and arranged in alternate rows of color, the California section formed a picture that will not soon be forgotten. Hume, ' 08, assisted by Stout, ' 09, and Stone, ' 09, led the rooters and from the minute the team came on the field until the last happy Stanfordite had left it the whole Stadium was continually shaken by California yells. First Half At 2:15 Butler kicked off for California and the game was on. The opening kick did not go the required distance, and a scrum was formed in the center of the field. After a succession of scrimmages, Holman covered thirty yards before he was stopped by Freeman. Cerf punted to the center of the field to Owen, who was tackled by Dwiggins before he could return. Two successive kicks by Schaeffer took the ball far into Stanford territory, but a kick over the line was touched down by Cad- walader, earning Stanford a drop-out from the twenty-five yard line. 212 Fenton kicked forty yards, and by means of some excellent passing in the Stanford back field the ball rested on California ' s twenty-yard line. Stanford secured from the scrum, and Vandervoort, taking the ball on a long pass, registered the first score of the day. Fenton kicked an easy goal. Score: Stanford, 5; California, 0. The California men came back with renewed determination, and a dribbling rush, in which the whole Blue and Gold pack participated, car- ried the ball to Stanford ' s two-yard line. On the next scrum Captain Tuller crossed the line for our first try. Butler ' s attempt at goal from a difficult angle was a failure. Score: Stanford, 5; California, 3. Within the two minutes following the next kick-off, Johns, after a brilliant run of forty yards, earned our second try. Butler kicked the goal and California led, 8 to 5. Second Half Crawford kicked off, and a scrimmage was formed within California ' s twenty-five yard line. After a second scrum, the Blue and Gold forwards, headed by Bell and Stow, worked the ball to midfield, but Stanford secured from the next scrum and Holman almost succeeded in crossing the line, Butler ' s beautiful tackle saving the score. Dyer replaced Soren- son at the center three-quarter position. At this juncture the tide again changed. Holman intercepted a pass from Schaeffer and covered fifty yards for a try, placing the ball squarely behind the posts. Fenton con- verted the try, placing Stanford again in the lead: Stanford, 10; Cali- fornia, 8. Immediately after the kick-off, the Stanford pack made their only effective dribbling rush of the day, and Fenton was enabled to pick up the ball on California ' s ten-yard line and register another try for the Cardinal. The attempt at goal failed. Score: Stanford, 13; California, 8. Glascock was substituted for Harris in the pack. It was here that the Blue and Gold team showed its real worth. With an almost impossible lead to overcome, and the time nearly gone, they started with a rush that literally swept the Stanford men off their feet, and Johns was sent across the line in the far corner of the field. Renouf , who had distinguished himself by his accurate place kicks in the Fresh- man game, was called from the side lines to essay an almost impossible goal. His effort was good, but went wide of the posts, and Stanford still led by two points. A moment later Renouf had another chance from almost the same position this time on a penalty. This attempt was even better than the first, the ball almost grazing the bar. This ended Califor- nia ' s scoring, but twice in quick succession Stanford succeeded in crossing the goal, bringing their total of points to 21.

Three games were played with the Barbarian fifteen of San Francisco, which was composed of old Rugby players. Besides this, the ' varsity met two teams from without the State, the all-star Vancouver Rugby team and the fifteen from the University of Nevada. In the first game with the Barbarians, on California field, the ' varsity went down to defeat by a score of 6 to 0. The game was spectacular from start to finish and furnished a good exhibition of Rugby. The superior dribbling of the visitors won them a well-earned victory. In the second game with the Barbarians, on Saturday, September 21, the ' varsity showed a great improvement in team work. The long runs by W. R. Johns and Cerf resulted in the first try. In the second half the Blue and Gold a gain crossed the line, making the final score 6 to in favor of the ' varsity. In the next contest with the Barbarians, the ' varsity added another victory to their record by beating the visitors 6 to 0. The ' varsity played the hardest Rugby of the season, but the game was not sensational because of too many scrums and penalty kicks. The first score of the day was 214 Magee Freeman Butler Fairbanks Budelman Johns Dwiggins Barnicott Schaefer Twitchell Taylor fuller Cerf Bell Glascock Sorenson Renouf Harris due to the clever running of Budelman, ' 08, Cerf, ' 09, H. S. Johns, ' 09, and Paul, ' 09. The second score resulted from the long runs by Harris, ' 08, Sorensen, ' 08, and Freeman, ' 10. In the first game with the all-star Vancouver fifteen the Blue and Gold bested the Northerners, in an evenly matched game, by the score of 16 to 12. The play was exciting throughout. The features of the contest were the beautiful kicking of Ralph Butler, ' 08, and the hard and steady playing of Cerf, ' 09. The score was California 3, Vancouver 3, at the end of the first half. The second half kept the rooters on their feet watching the ball go from one goal to the other till the whistle announced another Blue and Gold victory. The second contest with Vancouver was on a muddy field and was very unsatisfactory from a spectator ' s point of view. The game was slow and uninteresting and the score was to at the end of the first half. The superior dribbling of Vancouver won for them the contest in the second half by a score of 3 to 0. In the contest with the University of Nevada the Blue and Gold fifteen walked away with an easy victory, due to superior weight and knowledge of the game. The California backs and scrum showed up in great style and had the Blue and White team on the run from start to finish. The final score was 23 to in California ' s favor.

The day was all that could be desired and the new Stanford track was in ideal condition for fast work. The large crowd that gathered expected an exciting field day with closely contested events, in which they were not disappointed. As a rule the time in the different races was not remarkable, but the equality of the contest- ants provided the great interest. Of the track events a few stand out for the pluck and fighting- spirit shown. The two-mile was possibly the most spectacular, Hobart and Templeton making a wonderful finish for tne last quarter mile, keeping the rival rooting sections in absolute doubt as to the ultimate result, when finally the California man broke the tape. The half was another closely contested race, for though Maundrell was easily the winner, yet the struggle of Denton (U. C.) and McCready (S. ) for second place was an almost exact repetition of the work of Hobart and Templeton in the two-mile. Again in the two-twenty hurdles, after Johns had won the high sticks and the broad jump, it was impossible for the spectators to pick the winner. 219 The judges announced a tie. All the dashes were closely contested, Grundy of California in the two-twenty and Scott of Stanford in the hundred winning by a matter of inches. Only in the field events did we decidedly excel. Thirty-six and one- half of the possible 45 points came our way and aided materially in deter- mining the final score of 67 l 2 to 54 l 2 , with Stanford on small end. Johns fully earned his title of Captain by winning two first places and tying for first in a third, and he may well be proud of the team he led. It was a splendid meet and the Freshmen proved themselves worthy to wear the blue. University of Southern California Meet CALIFORNIA won her first dual track meet with the University of Southern California by the score of 89-33. As the Southerners had met Stanford but a few days before with practically the same team, it gave a good opportunity of comparing our strength with Stanford ' s. The show- ing made in the meet was good and the size of the score raised our hopes for a victory over the Cardinal. Although the Blue and Gold athletes had it their own way from start to finish, taking nine first places to the Southerners ' five, the meet was full of interest, there being several exciting races with close finishes. One of the best races of the day was the mile, when Nordahl and De Mamiel sprinted fifty yards in a close finish, the former winning in the last few yards. De Remer, Stanton, and Dozier all ran good races and were among the best performers of the day. Alongside them was Richardson, of U. S. C., who took two of the five first places made by his team. Johns made a fine showing in the high hurdles, beating both Cowles and Frei in 16 1-5. Had not his Freshman standing debarred him, he would have been a sure point winner in the intercollegiate meet with Stanford. A great drawing card had been the announcement that Parsons, the crack sprinter, was to enter. He had repeatedly run the hundred in 10 flat and in 1905 won this event at the Portland Fair meet in 0:9 4-5, thus winning the title of United States champion for the year. So it was with great disappointment that it was learned that pressure of college work had detained him in Los Angeles. 220 Varsity Meet BEFORE the meet current opinion conceded the majority of points to Stanford. Our faculty had ruled that Freshmen should be debarred from all ' varsity contests, and as Stanford would not adopt the same ruling we were compelled to meet her with but three classes. It was a sore blow, as several of the Freshmen were certain of places. But as the first events were run off and the wearers of the blue captured place after place our hearts rose and the conviction came that three of our classes were the equal of the whole Stanford aggregation. Then as the tide turned and the Cardinal annexed point after point the excitement grew intense. Finally the result rested, as often before, on the relay. If California won she would be victor by two points. But fate was against us and when Captain Wilcox strained a tendon in the last lap and Captain McFarland of Stanford drew away from him we knew that for the third time since 1893 the Cardinal team had won an intercollegiate track and field meet. Without exception it was the most remarkable meet ever held between the two Universities. Not only were records broken, from the two-mile to the pole vault, but almost every event turned a surprise. Places that had been conceded to Stanford were captured by the Blue and Gol d and points that we were sure of went to the Cardinal. 221 Crossfield Paul MacNamara Schultz De Mamiel Zoph Cowles Yost Stout Glazier Dozier Kleeberger W. R.Johns De Remer Wilcox Fish Christie Balzari Stanton Hall Budelman Cheney The mile, being the first event, marked the beginning of the six rec- ords broken. De Mamiel took the lead from the start, and though closely pressed, broke the tape in the record time of 4:33 2-5. In the high hurdles Cowles won both his heat and the finals in 15 4-5 seconds, lowering the time one-fifth of a second. The two-mile was the next event to have a new time set. De Remer, on whom California placed her hopes, led for ten of the eleven laps, but was unable to cope with the wonderful sprint that Nash of Stanford devel- oped, and was beaten out in the fast time of 10:10 3-5. In the high jump, Hall, though troubled with a sprained ankle, cleared the bar at 6 1 4 feet, setting a new mark that will doubtless stand for some time. Zoph and Schultz in the pole vault tied for second at close to twelve feet several inches higher than either had gone before and then saw Lanagan of Stanford set a new mark of 12 feet 4 inches, 3 l 4 inches higher than the old record and within 3 4 of an inch of the world ' s record. Stanford received the credit for the next record and evenly divided the new records between the two universities by winning the relay. Stanton and McNamara in the quarter and Yost and Dozier in the half ran game races and fully earned their right to wear a " C. " In the weights Glazier, Balzari, and Budelman were California ' s main- stays and won points that had been conceded to Stanford before the meet. Kleeberger and Crossfield in the hundred and Johns in the two-twenty ran magnificent races and did more than was expected of them. It is noticeable that California had no stars. Not one of the seventeen men who placed made more than five points and only one man placed in two events. That we won so many points is largely due to the dogged determination of the men, along with the untiring efforts of Trainer Walter Christy. Fall Training THE work during the fall has been chiefly to develop the raw material in the freshman class. The two meets were held during the season for the benefit of the 1911 men. One was with the crack Berkeley High track team and the other with Oakland High School. In both the Freshmen showed up well. On November 2 the P. A. A. handicap field day was held, in which many of the schools and athletic clubs around the bay participated. California won with more than twice as many points as her nearest competitor. A great deal of attention has been paid to the distance men. Here California has been weak and trainer and men have worked hard to remedy the defect. Numerous cross-country runs have been held and work on the track has tended to develop strength and endurance. 224 Varsity ! v t MJ Baseball WHEN the baseball season of 1907 opened, all conditions seemed favorable for another California victory. Seven veterans reported for the first practice, and there appeared to be a wealth of material to fill the two vacancies. Early practice was seriously hampered by the rains, and as a conse- quence the team did not do particularly well in the first games of the schedule. But as the season grew older the work improved, and hopes were high for a favorable outcome of the intercollegiate series. The first Stanford game was to have been played upon the California campus, but rain left the diamond in such condition that, by mutual con- sent, it was postponed. The following Saturday the nines met on the Stanford campus, and after nine innings of great baseball the game resulted in a victory for Stanford by the score of 1 to 0. California was unfortunate in having six men left on bases to one for Stanford. Pitching honors were evenly divided, each pitcher allowing but three hits. Jordan struck out three men, while Thiele, for Stanford, retired five and gave one base. The second game was played on the new diamond on California field before the largest and most enthusiastic crowd of the season. Pitcher Jordan was in rare form, and allowed the Cardinal batsman but one lonely single, while the California men found Thiele for five hits, one being Jimmie Schaeffer ' s home run in the fifth inning. Captain Sweezy in center field, Myers in left, and Hiester at third did some clever work in the field. Not a Stanford man got beyond third base, and the final score was 3 to 0. The third and deciding game was played at Recreation Park, San Francisco, and was by far the most exciting and best played contest of the series. For eight innings the score-board showed a l-to-0 score in California ' s favor, and when the first two Stanford men to face Jordan in the last inning were quickly retired, the crowd began to leave the stands. But that intangible something known as baseball luck had yet to be reckoned with. Sampson singled to center, Stott followed him with 226 Reid Myers Miller Sweezy Jordan Wulzen Schaeffer Causley Heister a safe one to right, and Owen turned Stanford ' s defeat into victory with a drive to deep left, scoring both Sampson and Stott. Last year ' s baseball defeat was the first California has suffered since 1898, and coming as it did, when victory was almost ours, it will surely serve as a motive for revenge to future Blue and Gold teams.

' The Crew and the Varsity Race NO COLLEGE sport has made more rapid ad- vances than that of rowing at California during the past few seasons. In the fall of 1906 the Boat Club raised sufficient funds to purchase three eight-oared shells from Cornell, the Cornell ' varsity shells of 1899, 1904, and 1906. California led the way, and soon Stanford and Washington decided also to purchase " eights " and to en- ter into the first triangular regatta ever held on the Pacific Coast. Though Cali- fornia did not come out vic- torious in the regatta of 1907, the season did much to fur- ther the interest in rowing at this University and to place it on a par with all the other sports. The training in the spring of 1907 was characterized by particularly adverse condi- tions. California had but one ' varsity man, Tuller, as a nucleus for an eight-oared crew. Moreover, the shells did not arrive until two weeks before the date scheduled for the intercollegiate regatta, and the crew went into the contest handicapped by lack of condition. The race was set for Saturday afternoon, April 27, and was to be rowed over a two-and-a-half-mile course at Richardson ' s Bay, off Sausalito. Three crews, representing California, Stanford, and Washington, entered the contest. Through the courtesy of the San Francisco Yacht Club all the crews used the clubhouse for training quarters. The scene at Sausalito was a gay one. Early in the morning people arrived to get good positions to see the race, which was to take place at, 2 p. m. Hundreds thronged the hills. Yachts, steamers, and row-boats 230 Williams fuller Garnctt (Coach) Evans Bal l cruised about near the finish of the race, while an observation train carrying six hundred people followed along the course. At 2 o ' clock the wind was blowing so hard that the course was covered with white caps. California was the last to reach the starting point, being unable to leave the clubhouse until Washington and Stanford had obtained their shells. On the way to the start the crew was swamped by the rough water. The men were forced to remain in the water for almost a half hour, and as a result were in a poor condition to row that day. California led at the start, but before the race was half over all three shells were swamped by the waves the gale had stirred up. When the boats went under Washington was in the lead, Stanford next, and California third. The Washington crew had to leave for Seattle that evening, but California and Stanford agreed to race at 10 o ' clock on the following Monday morning over the same course. Monday morning found the bay as smooth as glass. Both crews paddled leisurely to the start. Stanford 231 Witter McKillican (Capt.) Myers Bush Ashley won the toss and selected the inside course. The tide was coming in at this time, and so the two crews had to pull against it. California obtaining a lead at the start, gained about three-quarters of a length in the first two hundred yards. The Blue and Gold crew rowed well together, with Stan- ford bow and bow for the first mile. Stanford pulled a short, quick single- scull stroke, with more strokes to the minute, while the California men rowed the longer collegiate stroke developed by Coach Garnett. At the end of the mile the superior condition of the Cardinal oarsmen began to tell and they gradually pulled away from the Blue and Gold, until at the one-and-three-quarters-mile point they were leading by over a length. Stanford, with a lead of six lengths, crossed the finish line at 10:48:25, while California finished at 10 :48 :55. The actual time for the two-and-a- half-mile course was 13 minutes and 35 seconds. The superior condition of the Stanford crew is what perhaps helped more than their stroke to bring victory to the Cardinal. The California crew gave all they had, but condition was lacking. Our crew was a heavy one, averaging about one hundred and seventy- two pounds to the man. Tuller, Witter, and McKillican were the only men who had ever rowed before the season of 1907. California sat in the boat as follows : Evans, bow ; Ball, 2 ; Williams, 3; Bush, 4; Ashley, 5; McKillican (captain), 6; Tuller, 7; Witter, stroke ; Myers, coxswain.

The race was scheduled for two miles, but this was probably a dis- tance of three-quarters of a mile, and was not a good test of the respective merits of the two crews. Both fours were about evenly matched in weight and the race proved exciting from start to finish. The crews rowed with- out open water between them the whole length of the course, but Stanford had a slight lead from the start. The JBlue and Gold Freshmen rowed a plucky race and drew up with the Cardinal at the middle of the course. Near the finish Stanford raised her stroke to forty to the minute and drew ahead, winning by two-thirds of a length. The California Freshmen crew was represented by Robertson, 1; Ashley, 2; Schroeder, 3; Sperry (captain), stroke, and Bray, Coxswain. No time was taken for this race. Fall Training NEW indoor rowing tank, which accommodates sixteen men, has been fitted up by Coach Garnett in the reservoir near the agricul- tural barns, and every evening the aspirants for the class crews did light work in the tank. After being on the water but a few times, the green material so quickly caught on that the interclass races were held on the Oakland Estuary the latter part of November with encouraging success. The Sophomores just nosed out the Freshmen in the closest kind of a finish. Both crews exhibited good form considering the short space of time they were on the water. The ' 09 crew captured the second heat from the Seniors by three-quarters of a length. On the final heat the Sopho- more eight, after a hard-fought contest, beat the Juniors by about eight feet, thus earning the title of interclass rowing champions of the University. - Powell Clinch ' Wayne T THE intercollegiate match on April 20, ' 07, Stanford scored her first tennis victory in six years, California having won for the five consecutive years before. Claude Wayne opened the day for California by defeating Gowan, the Stanford champion, in two straight sets, 6 2, 6 0. Wayne played brilliantly, so far outclassing his opponent that the issue was never in doubt after the opening game. In the second match Henry of Stanford won from Dewey Powell of California in two fiercely contested sets. Powell played a strong game, fighting stubbornly for every point, and losing his sets only after a hard, close fight. Score: 9 7, 8 6. In the doubles, the third and deciding match, Henry and De Laney for Stanford won from Wayne and Clinch for California, in three sets, 6 3, 5 7, 6 4. The Blue and Gold team lost the first set, braced up and won the second, but were beaten in the last. This gave the day to the Cardinal, two matches out of three. California Team Singles Wayne Powell Doubles Wayne and Clinch Score Singles Wayne (C.) beat Gowan (S.), 6 2, 6 0. Henry (S.) beat Powell (C.), 97, 86. Doubles Henry and De Laney (S.) beat Wayne and Clinch (C.), 63, 57, 64. Championship Tournament fin the college championship tournament, Claude Wayne won the singles, while Dewey Powell, ' 09, beat out Ray Clinch and Ralph Gorril for second. In the doubles Wayne and Clinch won the finals from Francis and Lowell. 234 Sorenson Schwartz Egenhoff Hook Scott Cortelyou Hart Hirsch Way Varsity-Nevada Basketball Game ON SATURDAY evening, March 7, the ' varsity basketball . team played an intercollegiate match with Nevada at Reno. The ' varsity men outclassed the Nevada players in team work and swift playing, win- ning by a score of 41 to 9. The extremely slippery floor of the gym made it necessary for the men to keep wet towels on the side lines and constantly wet their feet. But it was this very slipperiness that made possible some spectacular plays. In the second half, Schwartz, coming down the court at full speed, took a swift pass from Hart, slid twenty-five feet to the basket, and threw a goal. The visitors were entertained royally by the Nevada men, who proved themselves true sports and game losers. The line-up of the teams was: California Forwards, Cortelyou, Hart; center, Hook; guards, Hirsch, Schwartz, Way. Nevada Forwards, Crane, Fulson, Parker; center, Homer; guards, Miller, Ross, Crane. Summary Field goals : Hart, 9 ; Hook, 4 ; Schwartz, 4 ; Fulson, 1 ; Parker, 2; Homer, 1. Penalty goals: Hart, 7; Parker, 1. Fouls: ' Var- sity, 2; Nevada, 8. Referee, Prouty, California. The Year ' s Basketball BASKET BALL at the University has taken great strides of develop- ment during the past year. Beginning with the organization of the Basket Ball Association, a systematic campaign for the inauguration of basket ball as an intercollegiate sport was started. During the season of 1906-07 the first interclass tournament was held, and the first ' varsity team in four years met another college team on the court. At the close of the interclass series in March, ' 06, the Heeseman trophy was won by the Sophomore five. The 1909 team was composed of Paul Bailey, captain and center; H. P. Cortelyou and R. H. Chapler, forwards; G. Hirsch and C. D. Sweet, guards. The interclass games were finished on March 15 and a challenge was received from Whittier College, the intercollegiate and amateur champions of Southern California. The challenge was accepted, and two games were played in Harmon gymnasium on April 2 and April 5. These resulted in victories for California, by scores of 19 26 and 18 27. The men who won victory for the Blue and Gold were: T. H. Hook, ' 08 (captain), and H. P. Cortelyou, ' 09, forwards; Paul Bailey, ' 09, center; F. Kock, ' 07, R. L. Egenhoff, ' 08, and R. S. Sorenson, ' 08, guards. For the present all efforts are being bent toward arranging a series of games with Stanford. The A. S. U. C. have promised to aid the new sport in every way possible, and will award " Cs " to ' varsity basket-ball men as soon as Stanford will consent to play a series. The outlook for the future is very bright. Nevada, U. S. C., Pomona, and Washington all support teams, and the next two years will probably witness the greatest development of basket ball in the history of the game on the Coast. 236 Varsity Basketball Game THE first of the series of three basketball games between the women of California and Stanford was played on March 7 in the Hearst basketball court. The bleachers were filled with an enthusiastic crowd of college women, who encouraged and cheered on the players by their show of spirit and appreciation of the game. The contest was one-sided. While the Stanford players were exceed- ingly quick and showed excellent training in team work, they were unable to score any field throws. Nearly all passes to their goal line were blocked by the California centers and the few balls which did reach there were immediately returned by the guards. The California women showed good team work and strong, sure, individual play, which won a decided victory for them with a score of 20 3. Following the game the Stanford team was entertained at luncheon in Hearst Hall by the California basketball women. The line-up of the team was : Forwards Right Maybelle Brown, ' 08 Left Widde Kendricks, 11 Center Christian Krysto, ' 09 Guards Right Marie Griffith, ' 08 Left Ara Brown, ' 09 Center Helen Pinkham, ' 09 Centers Right Winifred Hunt, ' 11 Left Alice Jones, ' 09 Center Maude Cleveland, ' 09 Substitutes Forward Annie Jones, ' 09 Guard Ethel Burroughs, ' 11 Center Florence Cassidy, ' 11 Second Game THE second game of the series was played at Stanford on March 14. It was quicker and more interesting than the first game, as it was not so one-sided. Although the playing of the Stanford girls was very strong, the California team won easily with a score of 22 to 11. Inter-Class Games SPIRITED interclass contest kept basketball interests wide awake during the fall semester. In this contest the hardest fought game was the last, that between the Junior and the Senior teams, which gave the victory to the Juniors by the close score of 13 12. By this victory the Junior team gained the cov- eted basketball cup for the year and the glory of having its numerals engraved thereon. Following the custom of the organization, the members of the winning team were entertained at a luncheon at Hearst Hall by the members of the other teams. The Juniors who played were: Forwards Christina Krysto, Annie Jones, Mary McClure. Centers Alice Jones (captain), Maude Cleveland, Helen Whitmore. Guards Alice Bell, Ora Brown, Helen Pinkham. On Woman ' s Day a game was held before a large and enthusiastic audience. The Freshmen and Seniors met the Juniors and Sophomores, and the former were victorious with a score of 10 8. These interclass games, beside furnishing exercise, sport, and class patriotism for the women of the University, also serve as a means of getting a line upon the material for the team that meets Stanford. Last year only two games with Stanford were neces- sary, since California easily won the first two of the series with scores of 17 1 and 11 4. Practice for the basketball team has been held every day from 2 to 4 o ' clock and Saturday mornings, and rivalry for the various positions has been keen. Contrary to usual custom, both captain and manager of the team this year are Juniors, Miss Alice Jones, ' 09, holding the first posi- tion and Miss Christina Krysto holding the second. Boating THE usual interest in boating has been displayed by the women during the past year. Early in the fall a new boat was launched on Lake Merritt and was christened " Kilohana " by the manager, Miss Gladys Hughes, ' 08. 238 Emily Drury Ara Brown Marian Taverner Edith Harriman Tennis Tennis Club has succeeded this year in obtaining what has long been desired, a second tennis court. This court is an oiled one, constructed by A. W. S. and Sports and Pastimes, and adjoins the old asphaltum court. In the interclass tournament the cup was won by Miss Edith Harri- man, ' 10. The other class champions who contested for this trophy were Miss Marian Taverner, ' 08, Miss Ara Brown, ' 09, and Miss Emily Drury, ' 11. On Woman ' s Day a contest was held between Miss Ara Brown and Miss Emily Drury, in which Miss Brown was victor. Swimming STRONG efforts have been made for several months to organize a swimming club, but owing to the difficulty in securing a suitable place for carrying on this activity, the results have not been very encour- aging. The club, with Miss Emma Mehlmann as manager and under the advice of Professor Magee, has decided upon Sutro Baths as the only available place for swimming, notwithstanding its distance from college. Plans are under consideration for starting a swimming-tank fund in the near future, when it is hoped more satis factory results may be obtained. 239 Sports and Pastimes SPORTS AND PASTIMES has been, since its organization in 1901, one of the greatest factors in college life in bringing the women into a closer relationship. Many a friendship which in after-life is highly prized as one of the richest memories of college days has had its beginning in the comradeship of the basket-ball or the tennis court. The organization has been growing constantly in numbers, and there has been added to the original basket ball, tennis, and boating clubs under its supervision a flourishing fencing club. Swimming has also been taken up by the women, and it is hoped that this sport will soon be incorporated under Sports and Pastimes. Each club governs its own finances and has its own manager, who may call upon the treasury of Sports and Pastimes when her club needs its support. This central treasury is supplied by the proceeds of the annual masquerade given in Hearst Hall for the women students. Every opportunity is given to the women for the enjoyment of athletics in some form. This has been brought about largely through the generosity of Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, whose gifts include Hearst Hall, which, furnished under the direction of Professor Magee, is the best equipped gymnasium in the United States; adjoining this the open-air, tanbark basket-ball court; and near by the asphaltum tennis court. A second tennis court is now being constructed at the expense of the A. W. S. and Sports and Pastimes. In basket ball, tennis, and boating interclass contests are held each year, which are of the greatest importance in keeping up the interest of the women. Following these tournaments come the intercollegiate contests with Stanford in basket ball and tennis. The past year has been a prosperous one for the club, with Miss Mattie Zander as president and Miss Christina Krysto as secretary and treasurer. Fencing THE Fencing Club started up again this year with renewed interest under the able instruction of Professor Magee. The organization is a branch of Sports and Pastimes and has about fifteen members, almost all of whom were beginners at the commencement of the year. The addi- tion of a number of new members at Christmas put the work back tempo- rarily, but also allowed the more advanced to display their skill with the foil before the dazzled eyes of the novices. 240 The Faculty John A. Stanton Theodore Wores Robert H. Fletcher M. Earl Cummings C. Chapel Judson Harry M. Alderson Eugene Neuhaus The California School of Design San Francisco Institute of Art THE California School of Design was founded by the San Francisco Art Association, Feb- ruary 9, 1874. Virgil Williams, a well-known art- ist of the last generation, was the first instructor and director of the young academy, and not only established the school on a high plane, but won for himself the respect and affection of all the students. Many of the prominent artists of San Francisco have been at one time or another instructors in the school. From 1872 until 1893 the Art Association occupied rented quarters on Pine street. On March i 4, 1893, the Association became affiliated with the State University and entered into posses- sion of the magnificent property on the corner of California and Mason streets, given by Mr. Edward F. Searles of Methuen, Massachusetts, as a home for " The Mark Hopkins Institute of Art. " The Mark Hopkins Institute was destroyed in the great catastrophe which overwhelmed San Francisco in 1906. But the school was again in active operation in June of the following year. The temporary building was erected on the foundations of the former institute and, being specially designed for the needs of the school, it is in this respect even superior to its former home. As the destruction of the Mark Hopkins Institute removed all vestiges of the resi- dence buildings which gave it its name, it was decided to call the new structure " The San Francisco Institute of A r t. " Meantime the old spirit of the school is more manifest than ever, the attendance is increas- ing, and instructors and students alike are working to add to its already well-established reputation.

When Olive spied poor Vandyke ' s craven hue, She got real mad and then she Madder turned, Whereat her next of kin, old Prussian Blue, Grew Red with rage and for revenge he burned.

Motion seconded and carried. Miss G h said that there would be no diffi- culty in writing it; that when she came up from the ferry that night the school looked splendid setting up on top of the hill with the light show- ing through all the skylights in the darkness, and that it reminded her of a line of poetry: " It shone like a pearl on an Ethiop ' s brow! " Miss G h ' s remarks were received with applause, Jimmie S h whistling through his fingers. Miss G h said that she couldn ' t think of anything else at present except that we had all had a perfectly glorious time. The chairman said that he thought that would come in better at the end. Jimmie S h said that Miss G h ' s description was " like a pro- cession of a brass band followed by a one-horse wagon. " Miss G h said that as Mr. S h was so ready to criticise, no doubt he had some ideas of his own. Mr. S h said: " You can search me! Only, if I was going to write it I wouldn ' t begin with any mushy stuff about a pearl on an Ethiop ' s brow. I ' d start right off like this : Did we have a Christmas Jinks? Well, I guess yes. And it was a corker! " Then Jimmie (Mr. S h) seemed to forget about the literature, and grew enthusi- astic over his recollections and kept right on: " Say, wasn ' t K 1 great when he came into the dance hall dressed as a clown and turning cart- 247 XMAS ill UK CHRISTMAS crx cv?O - O wheels? He ' s on to that stunt all right, all right. " And some one else said: " And the moving pictures! Weren ' t they great? I think that we ought to say some- thing about them. " Then everybody talked at once, and the chairman called the meeting to order. Then Miss T n said: " I move we give a description of all the costumes. " The motion was carried. Miss H s wore a Spanish costume of red silk and black lace. Miss G 1 was a shepherdess. Some one said that she was " Bo-peep, " but it was decided that it was all the same. Miss N r wore the costume of a lady of the fifteenth century. Miss B n wore a very pretty costume, but none of the committee knew what it represented ; it was made of yellow crepe with a bolero and plaited skirt trimmed with silk soutache and puffs of blue silk. Mr. S h wanted to know if the boys weren ' t in on this. The chairman decided that they would come in later. Miss T h wore a rose-colored silk with sleeves and yoke-facing of filet lace of the same color, the skirt being cut round and trimmed with lace ruffles. Mr. Smith said: " Oh, mamma! Put me down for a pink chiffon cut bias with gores in the sleeves and a tuck up the back. Say, let ' s cut it out. This isn ' t a society column. " Then Mr. C d got up (he hadn ' t said anything yet) and said that he thought Mr. S h was right, and why not just say that there were about sixty students present, all in fancy costumes flower girls, knights, gypsies, medieval ladies, follies, clowns, Indians, negroes, and others too numerous to mention; that the costumes were all designed by the students except those that were hired ; that the Antique Room had been cleared of the screens and easels and the walls decorated with posters " 248 " And the floor decorated with wax, " said Mr. S h, " don ' t forget that. That ' s where your little Willie got in his still-life work. " " All right, " said Mr. C d, " and the floor decorated with wax, and it made a splendid ball room. The boys ' life class was used for a supper room ( " banquet hall, " said Miss G h) and was decorated in blue and gold. The grand march began at 8 o ' clock to the music of Dibert ' s Orchestra, and after winding through the rooms, ended in a two-step. " And Miss G h said: " Oh, wasn ' t that two-step perfectly lovely? I wish we could have it all over again. " The chairman called the meeting to order and asked the committee not to interrupt, now that we had got started. Mr. C d said that he was only outlining the affair and that he was glad to have suggestions, and went on: " There was a regular programme of entertainments between the dances; songs and instrumental pieces by the students, moving pictures, a remarkable outburst of melody by the celebrated Paganini Orchestra, and ' a rival contribution of harmony by the famous Spieling Brothers ' Trio. ' Supper was served at 11 o ' clock. " Miss T y wanted to know if we shouldn ' t say something about the speeches that were made at supper. After some discussion it was decided that as we had cut out the descrip- tion of the dresses, we would cut out the speeches. Mr. C d said that he guessed that was about all. Miss L d said: " Unless you want to say that after the musi- cians had gone and the lights were being turned out Mr. K 1 sat down to the piano and played a waltz, and we all had a last, final dance in our hats. " Mr. S h said that he had not danced in his hat, a nd if any of the others had he did not think it ought to go into the minutes. Miss L d said for him not to be silly. Then everybody got to joshing and some one moved we adjourn, and the motion was carried unanimously and we adjourned.

The College Hooligan GARMS got onto an Oakland-bound car and plunked down opposite a woman chuckling a baby under the chin, which lay on the seat between two women. At about Fiftieth street the attentive woman jumped up and hurried off. " Heavens! " thought Garms, " she ' s forgotten the kid. " With a wild swoop he seized it and swung off the car in rapid pursuit. " Help! " rang out a female shriek behind him, " Kidnaper! Murder! " And then it dawned on him. The kid ' s mother was the other woman. The cop was close up, but he was equal to it. Dropping the infant on a pile of gravel, he swung off over the fields for Berkeley, and after four miles of hare and hounds, distanced the law. All Aboard for Jag Town All aboard for Jagtown!

News has just leaked out that when President Benj. I. Wheeler visited the White House on his recent trip East he put on the gloves for a few friendly rounds with President Roosevelt. The information was given out by E. V. Bray, a student at the Uni- versity. Bray is president of the Polydeucean Club, the new stu- dents ' boxing organization. Bray says Wheeler is in favor of the sport and that he boxes with his own son. Said Bray: " We are going to stand for clean sport. We expect to give exhibitions of boxing and wrestling which will be manly and scientific. No betting will be al- lowed. " The club expects to give an ex- hibition in Harmon Gymnasium next Wednesday evening, at which several prominent men, including Packy MacFarland, will participate.

(By the longest clothes-wire in use.) A mysterious stranger was seen lurking in the shadows of the Sultan ' s harem by a body of the Palace Guards. When hailed, he fled, closely pursued by the guard, escaping capture. A large reward has been offered for his capture. Moscow, Russia, July 35. After a long and exciting watch the chief of police observed a suspicious stranger make his escape from the Royal Palace at the corner of Tenthsk avenue and Nicholas street at 12 o ' clock last night. He was closely pursued by the Czar ' s youngest son, but soon outdistanced him, showing marvelous running abilities. On careful search, a 2000-horse- power dynamite bomb was found in the Czar ' s inside vest pocket. The Czarina ' s signet ring and the Czar ' s pink silk pajamas and his bald spot are missing and it is believed they were taken by the miscreant. Fididdle, diddle, diddle, Why bent in the middle?

FRITZ JOHNSON. A Horse on Thacher In the ordinary routine of Phil ' s Faculty position he has small time for recreation. Yet sometimes he breaks over and does it up in style. The other evening he intended spending at one of the college functions. To be real swell, a carriage was in order. Phil took down the receiver of his extension ' phone to call up the livery stable. It happened, too, that Spud Ingle was attempting a number downstairs. " Hallo, " calls Phil, " livery stable? " " Yes, " answers Ingle. " Well, will you kindly send up a carriage to the Phi Delta Theta house on Durant avenue? Thacher ' s the name. Huh? Yes, Thacher. " " All right, will be right up, " says Spud. P hil waited fretted, and finally stormed. Time passed, and finally, because of the lateness he ' phoned the expectant lady that he had broken down from mental strain and gone to bed.

It was an abnormally slow game that was in progress, and Breck ' s head soon began those painful exertions to keep plumb, which always precede sleep, but it got the better of him. No one knows how long he dozed or what he dreamed. Bang ! crashed a player ' s cue upon his head, wholly by mistake. Breck sprang up, threw out his arm and chest, and shouted: " Most fair Pyramus, Peter Quince " The merry ha! ha! that greeted his effort woke him to a full realiza- tion of his senses. He had to peer twice into Blackman ' s face to see if he really were not Peter Quince, so real had the dream been. However, when he saw the laugh was on him he lost no time on the return path.

During his convalescence, he noticed the rapid rushing of men into the Alpha Tau Omega house, across the street, and not knowing better, formed the conclusion that it was a blind pig. The gentleman is wrong, absolutely. The only pig there is Hille- brand, and he is so far from being blind that all attempts to steal his tobacco ended in dismal failures. This was not the Brand of pig the gentleman meant, but he had the Wright idea. Altogether the gentleman was wrong, conclusively wrong. The Budweiser ' s De But After the remarkable success at the Idora Park fest the Budweiser quartet aspired to, and secured, a professional engagement in a cheap Mission vaudeville theater. The night and moment for their appearance arrived and, amid a crash of music, they made their entrance. The ' rah- ' rah hats, C sweaters, and cyclone pants of the quartet took the breath of the audience for a short second, and then pandemonium broke loose. Bingham got an even start, however, and sailed in with the music: " There was a man, as I ' ve heard tell, Who was so fond of liquor, He soaked himself so full of booze He had to soak his ticker. Tra-la-la, tra-la-la " The audience, too, had warmed up and were yelling, " Rotten! " " Give ' em the hook, " " Bow-wow, " etc. Bing started bravely on the second injection, but he had not reck- oned on the manager. Something caught Bob Williams by one leg of his balloon breeches and jerked him off the stage. Bing. followed, and the other two beat it amid the wild applause of the audience. Later they were seen, silent and woe-begone, sadder Budweiser men. money makes the mare go, What makes the horse keep moving?

Tadlock Raises a Thirst and Money Queen Tadlock is there a million on financial finesse. Bonny Bess and Raleigh have to hand it to him when raising money is involved. The Idora Park effort, combined with the queenly robes, diadems, and auburn wig, raised an awful thirst in his august throat. But his pocket- less gown held no cush. Tad ' s credit is no good. However, thirst quickens the wits. Half an hour afterward Tad was seen lined up at the fountain, paying good, honest American money for his fire extinguisher. The foxy boy had swiped a chicken from the back of the Fabiola Hospital raffle booth; had traded this for a duck, and had sold this last for 30 cents to an unsuspecting woman who didn ' t know it was blind. 400 O, Violet!

At the last session Walter Stern insisted on drinking milk. Nothing would do but milk. " Say, " said the waiter, winking at the crowd, after Stern had let out his belt and sighed " enough, " " do you know what you have been drinking? " The question so took him by surprise that all he could do was to ejaculate " No! " " Goat ' s milk, " laughed the waiter. Walt jumped up in a belligerent intoxication, and had not the staff held him, would surely have butted into trouble.

Very sincerely, Ireland for the Irish March 17 dawned bright and fair. Up at the Psi U house O ' Kelley and O ' Melveny felt the spirit of the blessed Saint Patrick make the blood in the royal Irish veins fairly sizzle and snap. Something must be done to celebrate. Between them they raised the price of an emerald banner, complete with the harp and unicorns. All day it floated gracefully at the Psi U masthead. And then rattle, bang, crash! at the front door. Hammond rushed out, to be collared by a uniformed officer of the United States army. " Take it down, sir! Tear it down before I clean you all out. Out- rage, sir, violent outrage! " This impassioned talk stirred O ' Melveny to action, but just as he was about to literally eat the officer he thought of his poor mother at home waiting for him. Leaving Hammond to hold the intruder in check, he quietly lowered the banner, and the officer left in peace. 410 As Our Special Artist Sees the A. W. S.

Bill and Dill both got hungry about the same time one night and made a stalk on the cook tent from opposites. Both slipped under the canvas side and crept forward unerringly to the spot where the pies reste d. They were already anticipating the glorious sensation of pie real pie when bang! Dill bumped his head against Bill ' s and Bill crashed into Dill, both thinking the other to be McCampbell. It took the millionth part of a second for both to beat it through the brush. Neither Bill nor Dill showed up for breakfast next morning. " Awful headache, " reported their proxies, when inquiries were made. 414 Troubles of the Rushing Season The Chink Strikes for Shorter Hours Reward The Cow College Club offers a reward of seventy-five cents for the arrest and conviction of the malicious vandals who painted their black goat white on Labor Day.

One of the chief pleasures has been the finding of the earnest workers in the Junior class, and the true friends of the Blue and Gold and of ourselves. By way of thanks, we wish to express our appreciation of the work of the entire Blue and Gold staff. It is our opinion that no editor has been supported better or more efficiently in the history of the class annual. Especially are we indebted to the managing editors. Mr. William J. Hayes, in his position in charge of copy, proved to be of great assistance. Mr. George L. Bell has had complete charge of all art work, and to him is due the credit for the uniformly high standard of the art in the book. This was an addition to the usual list of managing editors, an innovation which has worked extremely well. Miss Esther B. Phillips has directed the work of securing and arranging the several hundred photographs in a systematic and pleasing manner and without mistake. Mr. Alson R. Kilgore, in his capacity as director of printing, has been of material assist- ance, his genius for tabulation and arrangement greatly expediting the work of the book. To the interest and assistance of the manager, also, we are indebted. We wish to thank the former Blue and Gold editors, M. E. Harrison, ' 08, and E. R. Hallett, ' 05, for valuable suggestions. The book is under obligations to an efficient art staff, especially Mr. E. L. Symmes. Our appreciation is acknowledged also to the California School of Design representatives, who were enthusiastic in their interest in the Blue and Gold. The prize title page was drawn by Miss Essie Pen- nington and the poster design by E. Stanley Hader, both of this institution. We are grateful to the California School of Arts and Crafts for the sorority and fraternity headings. Thanks are acknowledged to our printers, the Louis Roesch Company, who have assisted with valuable suggestions. Among those who assisted the book on the managerial side, we men- tion especially the Commercial Art Company, who handled all the engrav- ing in a first-class manner and with unusual promptness. We also wish to thank in this connection Boye, the official photographer; Hicks-Judd Bookbinding Company, and the Students ' Co-operative Society for cour- tesies cheerfully given. Now, before our opportunity to speak has passed, we bid God speed to the 1910 Blue and Gold, wishing them every success in the task before them. 420 August 30 Y. M. C. A. welcome fest.

GRADUATE Los Angeles, Dec. 30, 1907. " My Dear Smith: " I flatter myself that you and I are well enough acquainted to admit of this unconventional form of salutation, and further to permit of my saying that you are a dandy for not letting us know what you are doing. " Now the first thing I want to do is to congratulate you on your location in such a town. and your opportunity to build up a fine large college there. " I have a warm interest in Berkeley, having spent twenty- one years of my life there in school, in college, and in busi- ness. If I could speak to the people of my home town I would say: " TO PROSPECTIVE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS: Shorthand will save you untold labor in taking lecture notes; and without a working knowledge of business, even the senior is " green. " " ' TO THE PARENT: A nine months ' Commercial Course will give your son or daughter more practical education than two years of ordinary schooling. " ' TO THE BUSINESS MEN: You are striving for better office help; so is the business college; co-operate with it, and your efforts will be paid twofold. ' Sincerely, (Signed) " C. WESTON CLARK, " Secretary and Manager Los Angeles Business College. " BERKELEY BUSINESS COLLEGE 2191 Shattuck Avenue : Z. P. SMITH, Principal and Profrittor Berkeley Business College = Z. P. SMITH, Principal THE SHORTHAND SCHOOL OF CALIFORNIA In addition to giving as THOROUGH a course in Shorthand, Type- writing, English, and Business Letter Writing, as you could POSSIBLY secure at ANY college ANYWHERE, we offer a valuable course in Adver- tising and Salesmanship free, to those taking either the Shorthand or Commercial Course. We have been fortunate in securing Prof. H. S. Tuttle, formerly of the University of the Pacific, to take charge of our bookkeeping classes. One of the many strong and convincing testimonials on file in our office regarding the value of our work: " Dear Professor: San Jose, Cal., November 19, 1907. " Having heard that you expect to open a business college in Berkeley, I write an unsolicited letter as to the benefits derived from your instruction. " After leaving your school about a year and a half ago, I went to work as bookkeeper and stenographer for BLAKE BROS., Electrical and Fixture Company, of this city, and have been advanced very rapidly since, and am now Assistant Manager of the above firm. " I can truly say that while the bookkeeping course did me a great deal of good, the shorthand was more valuable, but the ad writing and salesman- ship even more so. In fact, this latter course combined with your lectures has netted me many times the tuition fee. " I take great pleasure in recommending you as a capable teacher, in these lines. Gratefully yours, (Signed) " S. E. LANNIS, " Assistant Manager. " N. B. If you can ' t attend during the day, arrange to join our NIGHT SCHOOL. February 8 Sophy election.

THE AUTO PIANO JOSEF HOFFMAN SAYS " If all beginners at the piano realized what exasperating, harassing, discouraging, nene-consuming difficulties await them later and beset the path to that mastery which so few achieve, there would be fewer piano stu- :r ' - These words by one of the world ' s great- est pianists simply emphasize the great diffi- cnlrics of hand-mastery of the piano. MME. TETRAZZINI SAYS - aoto piano is a H " t to human- ity. It should be in every home, for it brings with it the culture and refinement which only the composition of great masters afford. I find I can piay the great opens with the same feeling and expression with which I sing them. I love to play it it is wonderful there is no self -playing F iano to equal it. " The Auto Piano is the ideal instrument for the home where all the members do not play for themselves. It can be playe by hand, or by anyone with the aid of music rolls. It brings the music of the greatest composers into the family circle. It renders music with feeling and expression, according to your own interpretation. It will make your home better and happier and more home- like. Your silent piano taken in exchange. Monthly payments if desired.

In bathing suits (de)pleated skirts are already popular. Among land styles the long, slanting symphony dress will be much worn. It is made at an angle of about 45 degrees, of imitation silk with nickel- plaited plaid, trimmed with sonatas and bank notes. It is called " symphony " on account of the noise it produces when worn on the street. It is some- what objectionable, however, on account of its tendency to change color without a moment ' s warning. This causes the wearer considerable embar- rassment. Summer hats this year will be a decided innovation, consisting solely of a stuffed rooster pinned to the hair. A few of the more wealthy will import bald spread-eagles for this purpose, placing field mice or rabbits in their claws to make them feel more at home. Shoes will be worn with deckeled edges and brass heels. Polar bear hide will be much in demand for these and the men of the elite set are planning an expedition to Death Valley for the purpose of obtaining a quan- tity to supply the ladies. The style in glasses will be much the same, as the best lenses are still made of sodium-aluminum-calcium-silicate, the temperature of the reaction being about 2000 degrees.
