The hawkeye Volume VII published by the Class of ' 97 State university of Iowa To Isaac Althaus Loos whose genial no less than his able secures him admiration of students this is gratefully and Introducition THIS is our HAWKEYE. In it we have tried not only to fulfill duty which custom has assigned our Class, but we have to make a book that may be the Annual of each Class, the Annual of every alumnus and friend of the Institution as well as a Junior Annual Poorly as we may have succeeded, we may yet say that it at least represents the honest efforts of its editors to present a true picture of our University with its work and play, its literature, its jokes and daily life. Take it then. Treat gently its defects, linger long when it pleases you, pass quickly when it vexes you, and if in future years it may chance to bring to your heart the warmth of pleasant remembrance of old S. U. I. and the many associations which must cluster around those well loved letters, then will the mission for which its editors sent it forth have been fulfilled. The ' 97 hawkeye Board. The state university of Iowa THE University as the head of the school system of the State was provided for by a statute enacted by the First General Assembly in February, As at present organized the University includes the following departments: I.The Collegiate Department The curriculum embraces four general courses of study. The two Philosophical, the General Scientific; and two technical courses, the course in Civil Engineering and the course in Electrical Engineering. II. The Law Department The course in this department extends over two years of nine months each, and on its completion the degree LL.B. is conferred. III. The Medical Department The course in this department requires four sessions of six months each, and on its completion the graduates receive the degree M.D. IV. The homeopathic M edical Department Four sessions of six months each are required for graduation, when the degree M.D. is conferred. V. The Dental Department The full course requires attendance during three sessions of six months each. On completion of the course the degree D.D.S. is conferred. VI. The Pharmacy Department The course in this department comprises two sessions of six On its completion the degree Ph.G. is conferred upon all candidates who have had three years or more experience in a drug store where are compounded. The year ' s Progrees SINCE the chroniclers of last year ' s events closed of THE HAWKEYE the progress therein noted has been steadily continued. Marks of that progress may be recognized on every hand, and it is not to egotism alone that we owe the hope that some slight indication of it may be found in this volume. It is not our purpose to give here an extended of the year, since the whole book may be looked upon as such a record. But it is fitting that there should be a summary of progress made, and so important has been that feature of the existence within the last twelve months, that it should here appear: Continuing the record of last year, closed in February, the buildings then in process of construction, or nearing completion, have been finished and equipped thus adding greatly, not only to the efficiency of the departments directly concerned, but to the dignity and usefulness of the University. Attracted by the superior equipments offered, new students have entered to fill the extra space provided. Other departments have been favored with an increased attendance as well, until the one thing which confronts the Regents and Faculty most seriously is how to find room. These facts speak in no uncertain tone of the prosperity of the University. Its advance through the past has been uniform and now it accumulates strength each year for a longer stride the next. The Medical Department has, through the efforts of its Faculty, marked progress, and with the aid which is in prospect will constitute even greater and more important part of the University in the future than The Law Department has not been behind in the matter of progress is evidenced by the acquisition of the splendid library now added to the old Members of the Collegiate Department have reason to be proud of year ' s work there. Several men have been added to the corps of instructors thus allowing a more complete carrying out of the plans constructed by those educators at the head of each division of learning. New men have been added who have proved themselves in every respect capable and worthy to succeed the able and popular teachers who were their predecessors. The Library has been improved and strengthened by the addition of five thousand volumes. The Literary Societies whose champions have represented the University in contests with other institutions, have succeeded in raising our standard to an eminence of which the University may be proud. Another society has been formed from the number of those ambitious to do literary work and who found other societies full. In Athletics our champions have proved even more successful in some respects than we dared hope a year ago. The result of the Mott Haven Meet is a conspicuous example of what we can do, and though men who won us glory last year in the field are now building us a reputation elsewhere, we have those now with us who will ere long be their able successors. The instances of improvement herein cited are some of the more perhaps, but not all. The chief end which such a record can serve is to set forth the tendency rather than to detail an account. It is not our function, much less our inclination to boast over what has been accomplished in the past. Yet the facts as here presented certainly justify a measure of pride which it would be dishonest to deny and hopless to conceal. The Board of Regents His Excellency, FRANCIS M. Governor of the State.

Collegiate Department ALTHOUGH the University was established by act of the First General Assembly, approved February 25, 1847, no actual work of instruction was begun until March, 1855, when the institution was first opened. And even then for several years very little of the true work of the University was done, the Preparatory and Normal Departments almost the entire attention of the instructors. In 1860 the University was reorganized, and besides the foregoing there were established six others, namely: 1. Normal and Intellectual Philosophy and Belles Lettres. 2. History and Political Economy. 3. Ancient and Modern Languages. 4. Mathematics and Astronomy. 5. Chemistry and Natural Philosophy. 6. Natural History. Each of these was put in charge of a single professor and students were allowed to elect such studies as they chose, while at the same time courses were provided for the usual four classes. Students completing a three years ' Scientific Course were to receive the degree B.S., while four years were required for the degree A.B. In 1866 the so-called six departments were abolished, and all Collegiate students classified in one or another of the four classes; all of the work being done by six professors. At that time the requirements for admission were considerably below the present standard. The courses comprised the usual Classical or studies of the day, the only opportunity for election being in the Course, where students had the option of taking either French or German. Since then the department has grown in all directions. Then, two . men did all the work of instruction in Natural History, Chemistry and Natural Philosophy. Now there are fourteen engaged in the same work. Instead of the six professors, we now have forty professors, instructors and assistants. This increase in the working force has rendered possible the introduction of a large number of new subjects into the and an amount of specialization which has kept the department well up with the demands of the times. During the year 1860-1 when the Collegiate Department was first established, the attendance was: Preparatory Students, . . . . 31 Normal . . . . 120 Collegiate . . . 22 Total, 173 The following table of attendance shows the years in which the first and each succeeding 100 students were attained: YEAR.

SENIOR CLASS Class of ' 96 Officers PRESIDENT, C. G. BURLING VICE PRESIDENT, - HATTIE HOLT SECRETARY, C. H. STEMPEL TREASURER, MARY COLLSON HISTORIAN, MARION DAVIES SERGEANTS-AT-ARMS, - W. T . EVANS J. N. McCOY Class yell Hi! Hi! Hi! S. U. I. Raw, Raw, Rix! ' 96! Class of ' 96 COME hear the tale of the Class ' 96, Which in bright HAWKEYE ' S pages, forever we fix; From the first fiery meeting we had in Close Hall. To the time when to him us the Prexy will call To present our diplomas, tell each to " be true And honor Alma Mater as she thus honors you. " We began with a scrap ' twixt the barbs and the frats. But we settled that question ' thout any mishaps, And proceeded to choose a committee of six A banquet to manage, and date for to fix. On the morning before it, in chapel, the Prexy Requested the Sophomores to please not get foxy. And the Sophomores took warning and stayed in their holes As harmless as Medics, and quiet as moles. That remarkable banquet, how well we remember! It was held the eighteenth of the month of November. The next thing which happened, to tell it I blush Was that relic of barbarism, the bloody cane rush; Grab, scratch, pull, push, tear, strain, jostle, twist, tumble, And Freshie and Sophomore emerge from the jumble, While Freshie stares round to the cheering beholders, Not certain at all he ' s his head on his shoulders. By the way there ' s some matters, I omitted to mention Which are every way worthy your deepest attention. We ' ve a motto, to heed it I warmly commend you, It is deep and in Latin— " Spectemur agendo. " We ' ve a Class flower, the Daisy, a fact you ' ve forgot, Come be candid, own up, ' t is the truth, is it not? For colors as Freshmen we chose purple and gold Although they are changed now to blue, black, and old gold; Also there was organized, on that first fall, A team of our Freshmen to play at foot ball. We not only organized, what ' s better, we won! And made the wild Sophomores regret what they ' d done. In the winter, however, our warfare decreased When the Sophomores were kind ' hough to give us a feast. Henceforth in our Hist ' ry ' til we saw them depart, Love for Class ' 95 was engraved on our heart. Now, when we returned in the fall ' 93, We were hostile and rampant as Sophomores should be. We tried to revenge on the Freshmen all scores, Which, the preceding fall, we ' d endured from Sophomores. Though whether we perpetrated deeds very fell, I leave it to Class ' 97 to tell. At least, up to date, we have been the last men To observe the old custom; and banquet the Freshmen. On March fifth, our Annual Board was elected, And thus deathless fame to our Class was effected; For all will admit, the short way to be took When you want immortality ' s to publish a book. That our Annual, all Annuals before did surpass, Is a fact undisputed,—why, just ask the Class! The year we were Juniors, the social event Was a party where dignity and pleasure were blent, More ' specially the former, for ' t is granted, the charm Of a Junior is grandeur, and big books under arm. And now we are Seniors, our course is most run, Our work, and our victories, our worries and fun. Four years! We are startled, so quickly it passes, And we ' ve added a link to the chain of ex-classes. But before we write finis, on the very last page, Let ' s look at the actors who ' ve played on our stage. The name of our Presidents first we ' ll set whirling, Omen Bishop, F. Beckman, S. Whiting, and Burling. Of Secretar ies too, I will give you a sample, They are Evans, Maud Butler, M. Davies and Stempel. The charge of our finances, an affair of much weight, Has been conferred on our ladies, by some turn of fate, M isses Fitch, Jones and Butler, and lastly Miss Collson, Have managed our complex but wholesome. Our constitution provides for Vice President, Historian, And two Sergeants-at-Arms (I believe there ' s no more of ' em). But their names it is hard to recall with celerity, And otherwise, they must go down to posterity. We had some bright stars on our Annual Board, Which had I but time, I would fain to record; I simply can mention that trio of jewels, The executive board, Clark, Beckman and Dewell. For further informance enquire within The leaves of that book which their names are writ in. We must not forget in our effort to tell Our deeds, those who in athletics excel. We ' ve a list of them, runners and jumpers and riders, Who ' ve distinguished our Class ' mongst our friends and outsiders. There are Clark, Emery, Evans, Graves, Seaman, McCarren, While football, Smith, Stempel, Van Law have their share in. But in mentioning athletics ' twould be surely absurd To omit such an athlete as H. F. Kallenberg. As Seniors this year, we ' ve a great team for foot ball, Were distinguished on Field Day, and by no means is that all; We had a great banquet on the night Hallowe ' en, Such a crowd as attended it, never was seen. We ' ve a social committee, who are on for the year, And no doubt many banquets will later appear. The efforts of Burling, the chairman, unite in Misses Barrett, Holt, Davies, and McCarren and Whiting. What else we shall do e ' er our time shall close, We leave it to fate and th ' exam ' s to disclose. Our course is most run, and our tale is most ended, That we ' ve run it so well, we should sure be commended, We soon close our fair pages, for history to fix In the future, the names of the Class ' 96, Hawkeye 97 HORACK JUNIOR Class of ' 97 Officers PRESIDENT, J. DON. KISER VICE PRESI DENT, MARGARET VAN METRE SECRETARY, ELENA MACFARLAND TREASURER, CHARLES BLOOM HISTORIAN, HARRY W. HANSON Vell Hear our cry, Rule or die, Ninety-Seven, S. U. I. Prelude LET Another man praise Thee and not thine own mouth, " Thus spoke the wise man long years ago. The Class of agrees with him. We cannot recite even the bare facts in our history without seeming to boast, hence we have secured the service of a professional historian whose record and estimate of ' 97 is to be found below. history It is with mingled feelings of pleasure and fear that I write of ' 97. Pleasure at having to chronicle such worthy facts; fear that I may be sadly inadequate to the dignity of the task. For ' 97, as we all know, whether we be citizens, students, professors or alumni, is a remarkable Class. On every hand its efforts have won recognition. No avenue of student activity has been closed to its members, and they have penetrated everywhere. Ninety-seven ' s victor ies began with her entrance into the University. They were social, athletic, literary and forensic. But it is unnecessary to repeat these things. The success of her Freshman Banquet, the defeat of the Sophs in the Spring Field Meet, and the recognition of her debaters and orators, these are all well known. Passing to her Sophomore year, we find ' 97 taking the lead in earnest. In athletics she plays a leading part. The Foot Ball, Base Ball and Track Athletic Teams draw heavily from her material. She carries off the honors of the year with her Foot Ball Team. Socially she makes her influence felt everywhere. In the Literary Contests of the year she stands without a rival or peer. In the Inter-Society Debate it is Moon, of ' 97, who in the markings of every Judge, carries off the honors of the evening. And it is he, when our debating team is chosen to meet Minnesota ' s picked sons, who is one of the three chosen to represent Iowa. But we were not only successful in debate, we won the Oratorical That night ' s victory was bright for ' 97. In that contest Hanson, of met and defeated the haughty sons of ' 95 and ' 96. And then in the Northern League Contest, pitted against the five greatest Universities of the West, in a contest where we had never won aught, but inglorious defeat, his eloquence raised Iowa to a position of honor and set a standard for her future attainment. So much for ' 97 as Sophomore. Now they are Juniors and their hands are seen everywhere. In track athletics who stands higher than Sayers or Bloom. Imagine, if you can, what the Foot Ball Team would be without Iverson and Hobbs. In explanation of ' 97 ' s showing in the Inter-Class Foot Ball Contests it is only necessary to notice that the number of men which she furnished to the First Eleven is just double that of any other Collegiate Class, and as these men were barred from the Inter-Class games, her position is thereby accounted for. Socially ' 97 is " in the swims. " If you wish proof of this go to the Frats or Social Clubs. There you will find her always present. Her literary and forensic triumphs, however, demand no less Who edits the Vidette? A Junior. Who is on the Business of the A Junior. Who are two out of three of the of Iowa in the Joint Debate with Chicago University? Juniors. And so it goes. In whatever avenue of College life you turn you will find Juniors in the lead. " Rule or Die " has been their shibboleth, and they have their right to it with a vengeance. But it is unnecessary to carry on this chronicle of victories. Enough has been said to convince any observer, though he be as lethargic as ' 96, as boastful as ' 98, or as conceited as ' 99, that ' 97 is of right, by virtue of her own superiority without a peer in the Collegiate Department. No doubt ' 96, and will deny this, but what if they do? Can facts be controverted by a mere wordy denial? In closing this history I will not attempt to peer into the future to see what lies ahead of ' 97. Resolute in purpose, her ranks unbroken let her press on. Much has she done, more will she do. Time alone sets the limit of her achievement. If her future be as grand as her past she will have a record— " sans peur et sans reproche.

The Sophomores Win ' Twas a chilly day for the heretofore Freshmen, when they lined their team up against the Sophomores last afternoon. The Freshmen went into the game with the intention of making this game the crowning triumph of the season, but they made a mistake in the value of X, the Sophomores, and instead of being a minus quantity, X proved to be more than plus, to the great sorrow of the Freshmen. This game, which takes the place of the former annual " scrap " between the two classes, was much enjoyed by the three hundred spectators present. The Freshmen were clearly out-classed by the of the Sophs and their fine individual work. Score, 14 to 6. —Vidette, November 26, 1895. The Sophomores thought that oyster stews wouldn ' t hurt the team even if it was in training. Oh, those Freshman canes—that were to be. — Vidette, November 26, 1895. Ninety-Eight is Champion Last Thursday the Sophomores defeated the Juniors 6 to 0 in the last game of the Inter-Class League. Thus the pennant falls to the grasp of the Sophomore Class.

At first, as was to be expected, there were signs of greenness about us, but in an incredibly short time this wore off, so that only in unguarded moments was it visible to the naked eye, and it became apparent that the genius and talent and beauty of the country had been gathered together to compose the Class of ' 99. We proceeded without delay to organize and after we had had a fierce contest and the young gentleman who did not want the Presidency had vehemently given us to understand that he did not want it, we elected a noble youth who seemed fitted to preside over so talented a body. The Class Yell, after much debating and considering, was duly chosen, and then the of the Freshman Banquet confronted us, and as one of our number naively remarked it was a question of pressing importance. It was finally settled to our satisfaction, and the all-wise Sophomores, our arch-enemies, kindly distributed hand-bills announcing it and afterwards were sorry that they spoke. Meanwhile, we had been gaining fame and popularity abroad, and were much sought after by the upper classes. [Some of our members, more popular than others and anxious to please, cheerfully joined everything that came their way in a manner that fairly dazed the other students.] In athletics we covered ourselves with glory; on Field Day bore off the Class Cup, and at different times distinguished ourselves in Foot Ball. Thus far, our history, though brief, has been one of which we may well be proud; and although we can as yet say with Caesar only, " Veni, Vidi, " we hope from present indications, that in time we may add the " Vici, " and when we leave S. U. I. may it be said that never was a class superior to ours. (Added notes in a strange hand found upon the above manuscript.) And so may it be dear ' 99 for truly it does me good to see your pristine vigor and sprightliness. I am an old fossil hereabouts, they tell me, and yet never have I seen your equal. Never have I seen the University so shaken by the advent of a new Freshman Class as it was this year. ' T is usual for a class to behave with with some little decorum when first they enter S. U. I. in order that their greenness may be in some manner veiled. But you shunned disguises of that kind and stood forth in your true color and we cannot help knowing what it is. And yet perchance ' t was ever thus. Mayhap they all have had this swollen sense of self importance, but verily I think it cannot have been so. Was I so? Oh! no, it cannot be. I was a Freshman once, but not as these. It brings a shudder o ' er my spine when I think on it. But Freshmen do try and check the abnormal rate of expansion of your craniums or there will go down unto future generations a tradition of how there was one class in the University of which the individuals had the general form of a huge globe with appurtenances thereto attached, which strangely did resemble rudimentary bodies, legs and arms, Law Department the regular session of the Board of Regents held June, 1868, the Law Department was established, and the following fall it was placed in successful operation. The course of study as proposed by the Regents covered a period of two years, but at the time there was a law school in Des Moines, established there in 1865, which provided for a one year ' s course of study, and for the purpose of removing a rival school, and deeming it inexpedient to require a two years ' course for graduation when another school located within the State required but one year, and also because the State required, by act of the Legislature, but one year ' s office study for adm ission to the bar, the Regents the two years ' requirement and succeeded in merging the school at Des Moines nto the Law Department of the State University, securing at the same time the services of the professors connected with that school. The terms of the compact between the University authorities and the Iowa Law School were, inter alia, that the graduates of the latter should be adopted as graduates of the Law Department, and thus the founding of the Department was and made to include the graduates of the classes of 1866-8. The school has always sought to adopt the best systems of teaching and we find the recitation method, the case system, the lecture system, and the use of text books, as the basis or method employed by the professors and lecturers in their courses of instruction. The Legislature enacted in 1884 a law requiring a two years ' course of instruction or office study as future requirement as to time for admission to the bar, and the Law Department raised its course to comply with that requirement, and at present two years ' study for graduation is required. The Department has been successful from its establishment, and has gained a place second to none among the law schools of the country. The enrollment for 1892-3 passed the two hundred mark for the first time in the history of the Department, and has remained at or above that figure ever since. Its alumni number about sixteen hundred, and are found throughout the Northwest holding places of high influence on the bench, also as representatives in both houses of congress, in state legislatures, and at the bar. We add here a brief summary of those graduates who have been or are filling places of high trust. One United States Senator, ten Congressman, one United States Minister, three United States District Attorneys, among state officials, one Governor, five State Supreme Court Judges, two Attorney Generals two Secretaries of State, one Reporter Supreme Court, thirty-three District Judges, and many State Senators and Representatives.

THE Laws of ' 96 glide into their place in this year ' s HAWKEYE ANNUAL with a grace that is peculiarly characteristic of and the grace that is somewhat intensified, perhaps, by a long and vigorous experience in dodging a dire ct and personal declaration upon the effect of an executory devise after a use when preceded by a contingent remainder with a double aspect, depending upon a conditional limitation in tail male after the possibility of issue extinct, but a grace, nevertheless, which has become a unique and feature, notwithstanding its rather Hayesy origin. But having successfully sailed over the turbulent ocean of Real with its innumerable shallows and rapids and whirlpools of technical niceties, which the reckless abandon and eccentric hilarity of Merry Old Bill of Normandy caused to be engrafted upon the Common Law of Real we found it but a summer day ' s picnic to Rohbach over the placid waters of Criminal Procedure and Corporation Law with a well founded ' ' Intent " to feast upon the succulent Seeds of Chattel Mortgages, which the Board of Regents transplanted from the Garden of the Gods in New Mexico. even Equity lost its terrors and Constitutional Law its malice prepense, while our respected Chancellor no longer found it necessary to read the Regents ' Riot Act in the lecture room in order to prevent our robust and able bodied howls from violating the law of Territorial Jurisdiction, especially upon those festive occasions when we formed ourselves into a deliberative body for class legislation under the popular and well known Marquis of Gooseberry Rules of Order. But the Board of Editors has asked that this article be a history of the Class of ' 96. Impossible! The history of the Class of ' 96 is just about to begin, and the writer has several well developed conscientious scruples and a various array of miscellaneous misgivings relative to the effect of an ante-mortem history of this Class, and the scruples, misgivings, etc., aforesaid, caution him to beware an act so rash and fool-hardy. Besides, every individual member of this class has made a special study of the law of Libel, and, in deference to the express and duly executed wishes of his bondsmen, he has, on the discretion-the-better-part-of-valor theory, as Coke upon Littleton, would not to monkey with the history business in advance of the class obituary. This is given in confidence, not necessarily for publication, but as a guaranty of good faith and a legal foundation upon which to construct an alibi to be laid up for possible rainy day exigencies, as the Scriptures advise us, and as the thoughtful lawyer should always counsel his client upon the payment of the regulation retainer. But the history of the Class of ' 96 may be safely left to the future. Upon the brightest pages of our nation ' s annals it will be read by posterity, including the ladies. And I wot not that, ere Fame shall have withdrawn her affidavit smiles that now play havoc with the imaginations of the Class of ' 96, the classic features of many who now adorn and give lustre to the Class as a body, will even grace the newspaper advertisements of Puffendorf ' s Purgetive Pellets, so that they may go down the tesselated boulevards of history side by side with Lydia Pinkham and other world wide celebrities of this glorious old world of ours.

Rah! history THE Junior Law Class, otherwise known as Laws records here the history of its short existence. Its after history will be that of its members, scattered far and wide as thistle-down blown by the winds. With pride we can hardly conceal we write Juniors for next year, it is whispered there will be no Juniors to fill this important in history. Therefore we would carve the name deep that it be not forgotten, and that before the coming of another Junior Law Class, the name be not launched on the perilous sea of oblivion. So it is with extra efforts that we must bridge the chasm between Juniors " ' 96 " and Juniors And yet it grieves us, that there may be no Juniors over whom we can contemptuously glance with that infinite nerve that ever possesses the redoubtable Senior, that there may be none on whom our mantle can fall. The Junior Class represents the coming power in Iowa. From all over its broad prairies and fertile fields, the members come with their present wealth in a grip, and their future an estate in expectancy. To describe the individuals is impossible would space permit. To give our estimation of would require a vocabulary that would strain even Webster ' s Expletives are too limited and profanity too nearly a lost art, therefore I refrain. No doubt this feeling of our greatness (unhappily misunderstood by others) is in a great measure due to the awe the Junior feels on his first visit to that venerable pile whence the hardy pioneers directed the course of the newly born State to the prominent place it has attained. The steps are worn by the tramp of the multitudes that have sought this as the Mecca toward which their every thought and ambition had been turned. Other marks of time are there to raise the self esteem of every Junior who feels he is on sacred ground. I cannot refrain from mentioning a few of the rising authors of the Class. Hammill ' s Code is pronounced the best of its kind, while Walling on Beard on Conspiracy, Brady and Brown on Jurors, and Pendleton on Cross Examination are fast becoming authorities and will rapidly replace other books on those subjects at present in use. With this array of legal talent thus early displayed, no one can doubt that a brilliant and successful future lies before the Class. Our difficulties with Bishop as expounded by Judge Seeds (who said we were bright), and with cases as stated by Chancellor McClain (who thought us remarkably dull), were only equalled by our struggles with boarding house beef-steak. Thanks to the strong constitution of the Class severally and jointly, we have survived and have no fear of the future. But murder will out and so will history. While we were yet sojourners in a strange land and knew not the of assailor and assailee; while we looked in vain for the talismanic of Junior, or Senior, we bethought ourselves of the necessity for union. Whether the sundering of the home ties, or the kind efforts of astute disciples of Ananias among the Seniors, to find by divers the biography and destination (in) after life of each Junior, and the desire of each malevolent Senior to make the Junior ' s path replete thorns, or our failure to quote all the law from that elementary work we just before we started, caused the movement I know not, but passed the word. We knew the wily, jaundiced jealousy of the Senior, his scrapping proclivities and fortified ourselves accordingly. But he came A chance to develop his lungs, and to air those burning, thoughts that should astound the world, and that are as matches in a gale of Wilson. Walling. Lovrien. Griggs. Palmeter. Colburn.

We met one evening, and with us were many evilly, tortuously inclined Seniors. Their newly acquired title of Senior made them overly exuberant (even as a man who has rushed the can too often), and they gave vent to their feelings by shouting. An injunction was issued and then disbarment proceedings were begun. Before their voluntary exit they took a poll of the Juniors, graciously promising to come again. But we still wait in vain. Although the Dents thought themselves champions in base ball, our nine brought together, as it were, at a moment ' s notice easily defeated them. We are waiting until spring for more worlds to conquer. But two short months has our star been rising. Already its refulgent rays cast a splendor o ' er the pages of history. Already floods of eloquence and legal learning pour over S. U. I. and grand old Iowa. When it shall reach its zenith, when far and wide it shall blaze in splendor—my prophetic eye can even now catch glimpses of its glory—another ' s must be the task and another ' s the fame of giving to the world its history. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT PATHOLOGICAL LABORATORY Medical Department THE University, as the head of the educational system of Iowa, dates back to 1856, while the Medical Department, an part of the University, was organized fourteen years later. It was in 1870, or possibly late in ' 69, that a number of physicians met to formulate a plan for the organization and maintenance of a Medical School. These gentlemen saw the needs of their profession, and realized the requirements of the young men taking up the practice of medicine. It was a wish to advance the profession, and not personal interests, that led them to found the school. So successful were they that their plan was approved by the Trustees of the University; and in the fall of 1870, the first course of Medical lectures was begun. MEDICAL STUDENTS AT THEIR WORK. The Faculty consisted of eight members, headed by the distinguished Dr. Peck, as Dean and Professor of Surgery, with the following chairs: Dr. W. S. Robertson. Professor of Practice; Gustavus Hinrichs, Professor of Chemistry; John Dillon, LL.D., Professor of Medical Jurisprudence; Dr. J. H. Boucher, Professor of Anatomy, Dr. J. C. Shrader, Professor of who still retains the chair; Dr. J. F. Kennedy, Professor of Obstetrics; Dr. W. D. Middleton, Professor of Physiology, now Professor of Surgery. Dr. Kennedy, while being one of the organizers of the school, tendered his resignation before the work in the department had begun. All these gentlemen enjoyed wide reputations, not alone for their skill, but as educators. This fact has always been a source of pride to the entire University. The brilliant career of the late Dr. W. F. Peck made a lasting upon the Department. Not in the University alone, but throughout many States his name is honored and and no life and thought more worthy of emulation. The Department was in one of the College buildings until 1882 when a commodious four story was erected for its use. The entire history of the Department is one of growth and progress. Beginning with a class of thirty-three, and a course of study through but two years of five months each, the attendance is now over two hundred,while the course of study extends through four years of six months each. Instruction is now give n by twenty - one professors and assistants. Clinics are in session four afternoons of each week. These clinics are conducted before the students and cover the many branches of Surgery and Medicine. Another prominent feature of the Department is the Laboratory courses. The following are well equipped: Chemistry, Physiological Chemistry, Histology and Embryology, Pathology and Bacteriology. The constant aim of the Department is to keep abreast of the times, and to give the student the latest and best thought, and in so doing make good students, which means good practitioners.

IN this great drama of life we one and all must take a part; whether the part we play shall be such as will call us forward as leaders or leave us with the crowds in the rear, depends upon ourselves, our ambitions, and our ability to attain them. It lies largely in the power of each one to reach more or less perfectly the heights at which we may have aimed. Choose them where we will, we find a constant struggle, a continued strife, to act a part and act it well. Therefore it is necessary for us to consider our taste, and our ability before we make a choice of a life ' s work. This we have done and the result is that a large number of us have come to devote our life to the most honorable profession known to mankind—that of the healing art. We are a band of conscientious students, who have gathered from the ways of the wind for the purpose of preparing ourselves for our future work. Early in the term there appeared on the faithful old blackboard, " Junior Class meeting at 3 P. M. " Every Junior felt his loyal blood bound through his veins with a sudden start of true pride at the reading of those words. Accordingly at the appointed time we in No. 3 assembled. No interference was offered. Our most worthy Freshman President took the chair and after some time order was obtained, and peace and qui et reigned supreme. After a long siege of balloting our present officers were declared elected and soon were duly inaugurated. The extreme pleasure of having nearly all our former class-mates with us was ours, having survived the storms that beset the Freshman. To our new members the hand of fellowship was extended. We had entered upon the next higher plane in life, known as Junior life. This marks a new epoch in our lives and here our history must begin. For every one has a history: whether it be known or not, good or bad it must exist. We are earnestly struggling with the many arduous tasks daily set before us, working early and late, fully appreciating the importance of thorough training, and are earnestly looking forward with expectant eves and eager hearts to that somewhat distant day when we, having won by our incessant toil that much coveted degree, will be granted the right and privilege to go forth from here as the cheering rays of sunlight emanate from the great light and life of the world, to suffering humanity, administering to and alleviating their many aches mid pains, bringing to them peace, and God ' s greatest blessing, health. We have been a model Class in spite of our large numbers, we have made our Faculty as little trouble as possible. However, we most earnestly desire to bring forward all that has been handed down to us, and shall pass it on to our successors. But we find that changes are sometimes necessary in any organization, in order to keep abreast the steady advance of progress we have discountenanced some of those traits that so- distinctly characterized our most worthy predecessors. This change has been both voluntary and involuntary on our part. The red cards tacked out of reach remain as witnesses to the fact. Among other things we aim to " keep off the grass. " Some do not, and in consequence a glaring red notice is placed at our front door. We see this, we regret it is thus, but we are not the aggressors. We never " scrap " for that is a " barbarious " trait. The word itself sounds as if it was of origin. We sing, we dance, in short we have passed through the regular routine of the traditional Medic. We have been tossed about by the upper classmen, we have been struck with rubbers, snow-balls, remains of some ill-fated chair, wads of papers, chalk, erasers, etc. We have taken this all calmly as " Freshies " do. We have been seated on the upper row with pale faces, coats and hats in hand, ready to run at any signal from the writhing mass below. Our hearts have almost stood still at some of the appalling sights in the renowned old pit. We have wondered how we would behave when we were placed in the much coveted lower row; we occupy it now and enjoy all that the name and place can afford. We sit and watch the humble Freshman as he meekly seats himself above; we feel for them, for we have seen what they see, we have heard what they hear, and we fully sympathize with them, we respect them as only Juniors can.

" We have taught them to dance for us, we now only have to speak the word, they all dance except one, two, who because of their morbid imagination see all the horrors of the lower regions vividly pictured to them in this simple act. They are sorry for us and would work a great reformation among us had they the power. Now we are thinking with no little fear of the spring-time when we appear before the dreaded " Examining Board, " to spend a short season, never to be forgotten. Here we will display ourselves, we will appear " wise or other wise, " and cautiously relate the many facts we may have had instilled into us, or that we may have gleaned for ourselves on the way. We will tell them about the " Proximate Principles, " we can name a few, we can tell them about the " Amoeba. " We are well versed in its history, we have never seen one but we know it just the same—we could recognize it in the dark, surely. We will tell about the " Petrous Portion, " and describe minutely the " Antrum in the Mastoid Portion. " We will trace the " Omnipresent Vidian. " In short we will undoubtedly display our originality and relate, with utmost confidence, facts entirely new to the profession, surprising all. It is our custom to march in single file from one room to the other, so as to allow all to pass and thus relieve the otherwise congested condition of the halls, and to show all due respect and love for our persistent " visitors. " Strange as it may seem we have " visitors " forced upon us. They are reasonably peaceful and assume a martyr-like attitude when in our midst. Their modesty is really surprising. They are easily shocked, so we have to be very careful lest something is said that might shock their hyper-sensitive feelings--these Hahnemannae. We are very thankful that the Faculty give us time to go to meals. We do not have time to digest, only to eat. When first carelessly glancing over the program, we thought we noticed a lecture from 12 to 1 m., but found it a mistake much to our satisfaction. Study? well we study when we can do nothing else. We, at different times, may have one hour for study, but this not often. We read Gray and are turning grey learning this one little book. Thus we plod along the well trodden path of the Medic, cheerful, light-hearted and hopeful, ever beckoned forward by the desire to be useful to our fellow-beings, lending an ever-ready helping hand to those who may have fallen victims of their own error or indiscretion. Fame and wealth are in themselves commendable and are to be sought for; they should come to those, who by their noble works truly merit them. Those who strive for them with no other motive deserve an ignominious Among the latter we hope none of our class-mates are to be classed. But may they strive always to deserve success which will surely be theirs. One year from next March we graduate, the largest and best Class that ever will have left the worn threshold of the Medical Building. We extend a most cordial invitation to all to be present. Class of ' 99 Yell S. U. I.! Superfine! Medics, Medics! Ninety-Nine! Officers F. B. WILLSEY, PRESIDENT F. E. LAMBERT, VICE PRESIDENT F. H. ALLEN, - SECRETARY AND TREASURER W. H. BRIGGS, ORATOR M. H. THIELEN, HISTORIAN history We, the Medical Class of ' 99, take great pride in adding our brief, but eventful history to the pages of the HAWKEYE. At the inauguration of the four years ' coarse in Medicine, it was the opinion of the entire Faculty that it would diminish, by half, the attendance the first year. But was such the case? No! Seventy-three men, all imbued with determination, to meet, consider, and conquer every question of presented to them by the different members of the Faculty, entered the Class of ' 99. A professional man should be measured by his ability and not by his degree, and the adoption of the four years ' course was a step in that direction. We are a Class desirous to know the principles of medicine, and a understanding of their application in relieving the sufferings of mankind. The Class has a high educational standing. Of our total number less then were required to pass an entrance examination. What does this signify? It signifies that the Medical Class of ' 99 is composed of students prepared to grapple with the intricate problems of medicine. Some are graduates of the best Colleges of the State, and others have received degrees from schools of no small importance, while those who were compelled to take the examinations are men who are fully capable to compete with the more fortunate ones. In this we pride ourselves. We know that a Class composed of such men will be an honor to S. U. I and a credit to the Department. Our brief existence here has not been one of continual labor, we have found some time which we have utilized, by indulging in a few of the of college life. The Pit has again and again reechoed the melodious sounds of our voices, in approval and disapproval, of the acts done therein. The Medical Faculty have unanimously expressed their belief that we are the strongest Class vocally, that has ever entered the Department. Our tests in physical strength need no introduction. We have quelled the DENTS, passed out of our consideration, the and have too much regard and admiration (?) for our JUNIORS and SENIORS to mention what we have done to them. With these numerous good qualities who can predict our future? is inevitable. Our feelings of timidity will vanish like mists before a noonday sun, when we take on our SOPHOMORE attire. With the additional advantages given us by the four years ' course such as more lectures, more laboratory practice, more clinics, more time for everything, and also the bright prospects of a new Medical Hospital, we are stimulated to harder work and deeper thought. Surely the Medical Class of ' 99 is The Medical Diagnosis THE large, light hall was crowded full of students, young and old, And " Profs. " there were, and lecturers, too many to be told; Of demonstrators, too, there was a dozen, more or less, Whose lofty study here below was man ' s distress. The rector, from the teacher ' s chair, said, as he gravely rose, " To-day, for practice, we shall have a case to diagnose; But as I do not know the turn, the roll not being here, Would some one of the more advanced be kind and volunteer? " He thereupon, in language choice, as he was wont to do, Presented to the audience a face which no one knew; The stranger was a lady, whom with steady, careful hand, And delicate directions, he escorted to the stand. And then a Senior—who should else?—proceeded up the aisle To find the ill, and state the cure, in scientific style; Then through that learned atmosphere there stole a sense of fun, For it was known the task was one quite variously done. One whispered: " Bet he ' ll make a break, " another: ' ' See him blush! " A third: " Sit down! " —each, Medic-like, his courage sought to crush; Still on our man undaunted went, resolved to do his best, And to his patient dignified stepped up to make the test. He quizzed on this, he quizzed on that: her name, her age, her sex, Her shape, her size, her appetite--avoiding things that vex; Her pulse he felt, her tongue he saw, and what he did n ' t do Would scarcely fill the tail-end crease of a Waterbury screw. Success was his, and ailments ten discovered were ere long (Which proved to him that none of his deductions could be wrong): Neuralgia, felon, symphysis, with celluloid catarrh, The plain results, without a doubt, of falling from a car. Moreover vocal fever, shown by Glauber ' s psychic glands, And obtestinal instruction, due to henbane of the hands, Then peristaltic goitre at the fundus of the heart, Besides the strange condition that the ribs were grown apart. And lastly, floating atavism, in the ninth degree, From which a course of castor oil most certainly would free, And sarcolemma adjuvans, inherited to stay, Unless, like its concomitants, in time ' t would pass away. The students roared, a flood of mirth went crashing high and dry, It burst out of the windows, and expanded to the sky, The building fairly trembled from the clamor and huzza, The Freshmen shouting, " Bully ! " and the Juniors yelling, " M-a-a-w ! " Not only were his comrades pleased; the Faculty as well Were gratified, indeed beyond what pla udits then could tell, And so, to show their feelings, in the spring they called encore, When the doctor, so the story in another score! In speaking, later, of the trial, he declared he could n ' t see The cause of all the merriment, nor why he missed M.D.; The explanation since was learned: ' t was his failure to disclose The woman ' s greatest ill, to-wit—a wart upon her nose! PAUL O. ESBJORN. HOMEOPATHIC DEPARTMENT Homeopathic Medical Department THIS Department was organized in 1877, the first term opening on the 24th of October, and closing on the 6th of March, 1878. The first Class numbered sixteen, with one graduate. The present session opened on September 14th, and closes on March 10th, 1896, with a class of seventy-six, twenty being candidates for the degree of Doctor of Medicine. The first session opened with a Faculty of two; the present one with a teaching force of nine: It is a matter of pride with us, that all advances, such as lengthening the term of study, improvement in the and elevation of the standard for admission have been recommended to the Board of Regents by this Faculty in advance of any formal action by the University; and also that no objection has ever been made by us to any action of the Board that had for its object improvement in methods of or raising the standard for admission and graduation. The first year was spent in a rented room, over a store; the next year we moved into CORRIDOR. LECTURE ROOM. a little building erected for our use, but for many years, until 1891, only a small portion of which was used for college purposes. In 1895 the building we now occupy was handed over to us, and for the first time in the history of the enterprise, we were adequately housed, and provided with suitable equipment. The illustrations accompanying this sketch will serve to show that our facilities are now nearly perfect, and compare very favorably with other and older colleges, indeed are equal to any. The growth of the Department has been steady and healthful; there has been no attempt made to " boom " as it is called, consequently there have been no disasters. All changes in method and administration have come in response to natural demand, our history being developmental, not revolutionary. Among many evidences of successful work, the fact that five of our alumni are teachers in Medical Schools, in different parts of the country, is not the least in importance. Another is the demand for our undergraduates as demonstrators in the various laboratories of other colleges. There has not been a session for some years, that several of our Junior Class are not given such positions in large schools, in Chicago and elsewhere, a fact that certainly is not uncomplimentary to our work. The reputation of the Department is exceedingly good, ranking second to none. The earlier HOSPITAL WARD. history was not without many vicissitudes; sometimes its best friends almost despaired of keeping it alive. The facilities for instruction were so the building so unsuitable, the absence of means for clinical so conspicuous, that it often seemed hoping against hope. There was always one feature, however, that put the Department in a better position than almost any other Medical School of ,our therapeutic faith; the magnificent laboratories furnished by the University, with an equipment that no private school could possibly possess. This, together with the advantages growing out of an organic connection with a great University, the faithful and labor of the Faculty, and the good-will and active support of the profession of the State, combined to carry us safely over the formative period, and give us a vitality that has finally made our position secure. We have now little to ask for, and with ample assurance that that little will be given, demonstrating that the proper way to secure anything worth the having, is to first show a necessity for it, and then demonstrate one ' s ability to use it.

HUNTOON WE think it not profanity to say, that so long as a man is human, the story of the past will never cease to fascinate. And especially is this true when the object of history is such as the Class of ' 96. The history of the Class might easily fill many volumes, but a word to the wise is sufficient. We have members from far and near who shall go forth and cause the world to realize that Homeopathy is no mere hypothesis but is calculated for all, regardless of age, race, color, or previous condition of servitude (to " Compound Cathartics " ). In looking over our Class the first man of importance is our friend, Borts, who comes to us from that " Downey " suburb town. His in investigation will doubtless lead him to explode such hazy as that of ovulation, which now so much harasses the mind of the student. A. T. Cochran, better known as " Bay Whiskers, " has always been the pet of the Class. He is a Hawkeye from the Southwest, and was no doubt started this way by one of those " hot winds " from that quarter. " It ' s an ill wind that blows nobody good. " Our man, H. C. Ebersole, is a man of large resources, having spent his early days at Anamosa in and around the " Pen, " and having taken as his motto, " No steps backward, " we expect nothing short of a national for him. The life of W. U. Carton, of Des Moines, is also freighted with many crowning events, and we should not be surprised, knowing his as we do, if we heard of him as a surgeon sacrificing his life to the of a foot ball team. Then there is Mrs. Cray whose early life was spent as a teacher, and whose whole career we are sure will be an example to those who associate with he r. We remember when she entered how she captured the ere we learned that Richard was her other half. Of late we are to think she is more than half. The early life of O. A. Hansen, our beloved " Parson, " is rather hazy. He came from the fertile fields of the Northwest, and is supposed at one time to have been a " Medicine Man " among the Sioux. It is said a sign was once seen bearing the following. A. Hansen, M.D., funeral sermons preached at cost price for my patients. We do not believe this lasted long, however, for to-day, A. is a " crack shot " prescriber. A. S. Hayden is one of our adopted brothers. We are all proud of him. He spent last year in practice, and has caused many to say, through the efficacy of of the well selected remedy: " Oh Death, where is thy sting? Oh Grave, where is thy victory? " S. B. Hoskins, of Sioux City, a graduate of the University of South Dakota, is a man of more than ordinary ability. He was our Class last year, and through his gentle influence and tact with the boys secured the position this year also. Sam is a hot boy, and his cheek is sure to carry him through. A. W. Howe, that " green eyed monster " from New York, was born on a farm where he spent his early days. Here he acquired a taste for horticulture which he still holds in high esteem. Howe is a man full of electricity and his capabilities must be measured accordingly. From the beautiful town of Osage comes to us our friend, W. F. Hunt. He is is our smooth man—never had a razor on his face. He is no woman, however, even though he did steer towards the woman ' s ward. Hunt ' s heavy practice during last summer has sapped some of his vital energy, but he is one of those irrepressible fellows who are sure to come out on top. G. A. Huntoon, one of our heavy weights comes to us from the State metropolis. He is one of those silent forces which nature has favored us with and adds dignity, power and loyalty to our profession. The early life of G. F. McBurney, who is a native of Iowa, was spent in feeding his father ' s flocks. He then took some pride in fat stock, but since entering our Class has lost all taste for anything fat. R. L. Newbold is another one of our adopted brothers. He was reared in Linn county, where he developed his biceps extracting stumps from his father ' s potato patch. Later in life he became distinguished as a Pharmacist, by which knowledge he has not only gained honor himself, but has added glory to the Department. N. D. Oyler who has made himself famous for being conspicuous by his absence is another of our rural products. He is like the a vast amount of latent energy. G. Seeley, of Sutherland, Iowa, was born of white parents in the year You will see he is a little premature, but being made of the right material all of his efforts are crow ned with success. W. E. Shaffer is from Dysart, Iowa. Up to the time of entering our Class he was employed in the trade of the Good Man. Mrs. A. E. Thomas, of Des Moines, is the last member to enter our Class, but is by no means the least. In her former work as a teacher she won for herself distinction, and with us she is doing the same trick. She is a doubt a specialist. Her particular line being that of an —? Two members of our Class come from Traer, Iowa. Mrs. Belle Thompson and G. F. Wentch. Mrs. Thompson is the flower of the Class. Her early life was also spent as a teacher, and her winning ways secured for her a host of friends. Her life reminds us of where he says: " What a piece of work is man; in form and moving, how express and admirable, in action, how like an angel. " Wentch is one of those Abraham Lincoln sort of fellows, who started life in a rail pile; but being possessed of an unusual amount of tact and makes every step count toward the desired end of relieving suffering humanity of the pains which grim nature has conferred upon it. Miss Ella Woolverton, a resident of this city, is one of the few who always look upon the bright side of life. She is a graduate of the nurses ' course, and believing that a knowledge of medicine would aid her labors entered our Class to complete her course. Those who are acquainted with her know that while she has a cheerful nature, yet she never smiles.

TAYLOR IT came to pass in the year one thousand eight hundred and ninety and four that certain laws were made and promulgated by men of exceedingly great learning. And the laws proclaimed, thus saith the wise men: " Beginning with the year, one thousand eight hundred five and ninety, in the ninth month thereof (which is September), all students who desire to learn how to juggle with divers diseases (and the truth), shall take a five years ' course in Physics, and the first year shall it not be spent with a local healer? Four years shall ye wrestle with Anatomy and (and the Professors), then shall ye be given a parchment, whereon it saith: To whom it may come, greeting—behold, the possessor of this even William Hawley Smith, hath finished certain prescribed lectures on divers diseases, and is competent to name troubles and fees. Him shall ye call in times of great pain, to tell you where it is located, and how to heal it. " Now these laws were very vexing to certain students, whose time was limited, and who had not so much money of the realm, as the rich man ' s son, and with one voice and one accord they said: we will arise and go to the State University, and save a year ' s time and much money. For we have heard of the fame of the Department called Homeopathic, whose professors are filled with knowledge and much zeal, and who scruple not to make the student to feel that he hath plenty to think about. So in the ninth month of that year, on the eighteenth day thereof, six women and twenty men presented evidences of much learning (?) and five dollars of the Republic called America, to him who sat at the gate, which interpreted means the Registrar, whose surname is Gilchrist. Now these are the genealogies of them that registered that day: James, whose surname is Battin, of the tribe Yankee. (The same [tribe] tradeth much and maketh fine bargains); and, Albert, whose father and mother dwell in the city Sheldon, and whose surname is Bishop. Behold he cometh of the tribe beyond the seas called English; and, William, whose surname is Bywater, and who hath large knowledge of other tribes, gathered in the city called Iowa City. Edgar, called Dun Van, who seemeth to be of the tribe called Dutch, and who haileth from the province called New York. He aspireth to Chemistry. Myrtle, of the tribe Ebersole, fair and comely to look upon. Verily she is a " hustler " for she carrieth much extra work. Arminda, whose surname is Fry, and who haileth of the nation Scotch. (The same [Fry] doeth valiant battle for her rights). Jorgen, surnamed Hansen, a devout man of the tribe Norsky, who determineth in his heart to slay disease. The same poundeth hard. Clara, surnamed Hazard, who hath vowed to help her husband heal diseases. Edwin, whose surname is Hazlett, who is possessed of pleasant manners and a lofty beard. The same spareth not time to make life pleasant. Irwin, surnamed Howard, who taketh time and many other things by the forelock, and enjoyeth college life with an exceeding great enjoyment. Frank, also called " Fake, " who beareth with much dignity the name Kauffman. The same laboreth early and late, and hath much concern for Materia Medica. Bertha, whose surname is Lilly, which speaketh for itself, and needeth not to be explained. Millie, who beareth the name Martin, .and who fractureth the tender hearts of the men, so that the injunction " Let not your hearts be troubled, " availeth them the same as the quiz doth her, Henry, surnamed Marvin, of the tribe Irish, who is large of stature, and generous of intellect and disposition. The same feareth not to sleep late. Raymond, whose surname is Peck, cometh from afar off. He belongeth to the tribe called Mugwump, and talketh much in whispers during the lecture. Gailliard, surnamed Seemes, like unto his father, a man who feeleth to make merry with his feet. William, whose surname is Semones (the same accenteth the o), and who faileth not to talk when called upon. Lo, he cometh of the tribe called French, that live on the border of the sea called Atlantic. Everett, whose surname is Speaker, a publican of the tribe, Young America, who spareth not time nor energy to acquaint himself with the griefs of mankind. Grace, who beareth with much meekness the name, Stauffer. Behold she is of the tribe, Penn. Dutch, and haileth from Pennsylvania. Linton, whose surname is Struble, behold is he not also of the tribe called Dutch? (albeit he simulateth the tribe called Eskimo.) Like he is small of stature, but he getteth there in medicine much the same as his brethren of larger stature. Morris, who beareth the surname Taylor, of the tribe Russian. The same hath an unreasonable favor for his beard. Hearken not to his voice for he joketh much with his mouth. Joe, whose surname is Westenberger, and who hath an unseemly for labor. These are the genealogies of them that sticketh to the grand old S. U. I. Behold, are not their deeds written in the chronicles, and on the records, and desk tops? But what further shall we say of them? Wot ye not out of such material is made the great force of medical practitioners? Yea, verily, for there is laid up a diploma for him who persisteth even unto the end. And the triumph and the reward shall be his. " And the night shall be filled with music, And the cares that infest the day Shall fold their tents like the Arabs, And as silently steal away.

KAUFFMAN history HISTORY teaches that the significance of a country in the story of man is not measured by its territorial extent. In the fall of 1895, the Medical course, being extended from three to four years, gave rise to a deficiency in the Sophomore Class, which indeed was an appalling danger to the Class of ' 97. Soon it was announced that there was to be a Class of ' 98, consisting of the Freshman Class, who had taken a Collegiate course. The Class was started with seven, who passed the necessary examinations translating the fearful voyage of Virgil and the heroic deeds of Caesar. At first the trials of the Sophs were many. There were numerous conflictions and more numerous afflictions. But these were all finally remedied, and " soft winged peace " reigned over all, letting fall from her gentle pinions the protecting shadows of prosperity and hope. As time passed by, three new men were added to our Class making a grand total of ten. It would be no more than fitting this the first Sophomore Class to give an individual history of its members, but space forbids an elaborate biography, so only a brief sketch will be given of these eminent and highly honored people. The first on our roll of honor is Mrs. Ida Bailey, the only lady in the Class. Mrs. Bailey comes to us from that Biggest show on earth, " " Barnum Bailey, " in which she owns a half interest. She has done much in bringing the show to its present condition. On a return from one of her numerous visits to the Fiji Islands, where she had been collecting material for her enterprise, she brought to the shores of America the illustrious member of our Class, Mr. Burtchby, who already is acknowledged to be the " Star " of the Class. Lambert has been teaching Theology in the Keely Cure institute at Keokuk, Iowa. Mr. Lambert is also used as our encyclopedia. Miller and Todd held two very important offices in Coxey ' s Army, and on their march to Washington were left behind while feasting on a couple of hams which they had appropriated to ameliorate peculiar symptoms located in the epigastric region. Skinner comes to us as a man of much experience, having been connected with the well known Palmer House of Chicago: once having been there over night, he formed hotel proclivities which are hard to overcome, for with his Medical course he is running one of the leading hotels of the city, also a bicycle. Woods and Sarchett have been running an apiary in Southern Florida. They are here studying " hives. " Merschon hails from Northern Wisconsin, where he was engaged in the lumber business. He is making a specialty of " shingles. " Kauffman was for a long time conductor on a mud train in Canada, he does not like it here, the people get up entirely too early. With such pleasing prospects and possibilities, the Class of ' 98 has a future full of honor and success. Diseased Cells IOWA CITY R.I.

Those letters do not stand for His Majesty ' s Doctors, though we Freshies hope for the time when we can hitch them onto our names. You know we are the Class of ' 99, and I suppose they waited for our Class to take the four years ' course to round out the century in splendid style. I don ' t blame them for we have a bona fide Class Sounds like lonely Fido, does n ' t it? You see we have just been studying the bones on the living subject, while Fido is kind of a scarce article here, due partly to protection (of what ' s left), and the lack of importation of new material and we just now finished the canine teeth which Prof. says my great-great ancestors left for me in your care. Is that so? We have twenty in our Class, all fine men with the exception of two who are women, two little girls in blue, you know. Blue, I tell you, we were just after a Royal good time in Materia Medica too. Yet those delightful Seniors tell us we know more now than when we get way up where they are. Queer is n ' t it? All the Classes are kind to us and seem to pity us, and even the Professors handle us gingerly, as if the flask would break and the gas escape, as Prof. Rockwood says. He is a wise man and must be right. You know pa told me I must n ' t ride " ponies, " but over in the they had what looked like a goat to ride, and thought they could make us become jockeys. but the fun of it was, we soon had them riding the beast themselves. We sit there between the acts, as the old Romans ,used to do, only we are way up in " nigger heaven " and when a poor man has danced long enough, we hold up our thumbs and he lives. Sometimes we sing " Rocking in the Old Oaken Cradle, " or " Mary and that Poor Pestered Lamb of Hers, " which is sung to the tune of " Rally Round the Flag. " I tell you one thing, when we get through vv ith our clinics this year we shall at least know what our Seniors wear on their backs and how their back hair is done up, we see little else. By vote of the Class we decided that if was not all wool, he is at least a yard wide. Yet we are a peaceful and patient lot and never kick unless we have a dead sure thing. Well, ma, I have told you of this Class of and if I presume to the glorious future and success of these, my friends, may my buccal cavity be closed by spasmodic action of my obicular and elevators while my organ of speech be inseparably connected with the superior aspect of the fauces and my crico-arytenoideus latualisosa, arytenoepiglottideus superior and my constrictors shut off the rest of my wind. Good-bye. Your anxious son, TRINNITUS. Cell Wall Cell Contents nucleus A CELL Dental Department Dental Department THE Dental Department of this institution was authorized and at the same time organized by the board of Regents, June 18th, 1882. The first session of ' 82– ' 83, there were fourteen students in attendance. This, the thirteenth session has enrolled two hundred and eight students, omitting the enrollment that will take place for the Spring and Practitioner ' s courses; which open March 18th, 1896, and continue until June 5th. The first session, the curriculum called for two years of five months each, with this provision: that five years of practice gave credit for one scholastic year. The Association of Dental Faculties, consisting of representatives of all the reputable Dental Colleges in the United States, organized the following year, and rescinded the five year practice clause. Since then at their annual meetings, they have found it necessary from time to time, for the best interests of the profession, to advance the standard both of admittance and time of graduation. At this date the time requirements for graduation are three years of six months each. The ultimate point, however, looked for in a Dental Course by this Association of Dental Faculties is a curriculum of three years of nine months each, to be realized in the year 1900. This Department instead of waiting until the year has decided to make that advance the coming session. Thus making the required course for graduation three years of nine months each, commencing with the session of ' 96– ' 97. The last Legislature recognizing the needs of the Department $25,000 for a new building, which was with great care and foresight erected and furnished with some new equipments. The enrollment of students this session has, however, overtaxed its capacity, and the needed equipments we trust will be forth coming. During the past year this Department was called upon to mourn the loss of two of its ablest teachers, Prof. W. O. Kulp and Prof. John J. R. Patrick. Both were men through whose influence the profession has enabled to rise from chaos to be now a link in the chain of sciences. Prof. Kulp as one of the first teachers of this Department, has through his efforts helped it to reach its present standing. The policy of the Department has always been to secure of marked ability on special subjects. In pursuance of this policy, the services of W. Harlan, of Chicago, have been secured during this session, his and experiments in special Materia Medica as applied to Dentistry having received wide attention. In conclusion we may say that the prospects were never more flattering. The reports from three hundred and forty-one graduates all bear the insignia of success. The fact that other Dental Colleges engage our graduates as teachers speaks for itself. At the present time fourteen of our graduates are so employed.

LAB The College of Pharmacy THE Pharmaceutical College of the State University of Iowa is a patent illustration of the law of supply and demand. In days gone by our would-be-pharmacists simply did not feel the need of the education which a Pharmaceutical might afford. In 1885 statute proved a school-master to tell such candidates their duty, by excluding them from the practice of pharmacy unless they came up either with a diploma or some similar certificate showing definite attainments. It should be said, however, that prior to the passage of the law in question the present indefatigable Dean of the University school had for some years conducted classes in the city of Des Moines in practical Pharmacy, so that at length, when the demand for more formal instruction came, by unanimous recommendation of the State Society, Prof. Boerner was called to the head of a new Department of the State This was in 1885. The number of students in the first Pharmacy Class connected with the State University was fourteen, and of these two were graduated March, 1887. The present writer well remembers the excited in the University circles by the few gas-furnished tables in the cellar of the Medical College, and the simple bits of apparatus which in that day made up the equipment of the Pharmaceutical Laboratory. The were simple, but a wonder none the less. There were big glass flasks with long sharp nozzles turned scornfully downward; there were smaller glass flasks with rubber corks carrying one glass tube after another, and yards of rubber tubing that seemed to hitch in some mysterious way almost the whole laboratory together; there were big vessels of queer cylindric shape, suspended, here and there, each containing some different, dark, ingredients; and when somewhere in the circuit a burning gas-jet set the whole scheme in action, liquids boiled, the steam distilled, the tankards dripped, and everybody knew that if anywhere a transmutation of the baser elements into gold took place, such transformation had beginning here. If Materia Medica had ever any " principles " they must surely in such a cavern stand revealed! From small beginnings the progress of the Department has been The number of students in attendance has increased at the rate of twenty per cent. per year. Every year sees courses of instruction better organized, laboratories better equipped for practical work, opportunities more and more enlarged. When the day comes that the State of Iowa first in all other noble things, shall be also first in the support of her University, the College of Pharmacy will be found ready in plan and spirit for largest second to no other institution of the kind whether in the old world or in the new.

LEE HISTORIAN, - - - - - - - W. B. FRASER Yell Ho! Ho! Ho! Hi! Hi! Hi! Pharmacy ' 97, S. U. I. WE, the Class of ' 97, assembled in the large lecture hall of the Chemical Building, Friday, September 20th, 1895, to listen to the address of welcome by Prof. Boerner, Dean of the Faculty. Only those who have had a similar experience can comprehend the dread which we Juniors felt on entering the amphitheatre for the first time, and the lofty air of importance we felt on entering such a large and elegantly furnished Chemical Building. The Seniors, gazing upon our number and upon the material displayed, made—fortunately for them—no uncivil remarks. That day will long be remembered, especially by the Faculty, as it marked the opening of a new term of school, with the largest Class ever enrolled in the history of the Department. After listening to a few fitly spoken words by the Dean, we were ready to plunge into the study of Pharmacy with even more earnestness and zeal than before. What ambitions there sprang forth, and found expression for the first time! We are sixty in number, the descendants of many different nations, gentlemen and five of the fairer sex, of whom the Class may be justly proud, and we doubt if any Department of the University has a brighter set of girls. We do not mention their ages—but we will say—do not guess over eighteen. As a whole, we are a Class of conscientious, and hard working students, who are endeavoring with all our mental capacity to conquer that which lies before us. Our term being only six months in length, bars the members of our Class from the University band, and also from the base ball team; consequently not allowing some of the very best material in the University to manifest itself. Instead of having to fill the most difficult prescriptions, and prepare elixirs, pills, etc., at first, as we had hoped, we began laying a firm by performing a few simple reactions in our commodious Chemical Laboratory. We have trod the same path as many Classes before us, and many to follow; we have tried to make our record one of progress. As we pass along the street, as we enter our building, some one yells, " Freshies, " or " Greenies, " but when Prof. Macbride tells us " to be green is to be growing, " we let it pass by--forget past injuries, and labor on with renewed energy. Our future recollections will bear us back to days that are gone, and to happy hours spent over that great book--Remington ' s Practice of Pharmacy. We now offer our Professors and the Seniors any advice free. We gaze with awe at the Faculty, to whose tender mercies we are subject for a short time; and look forward with dread to March, the time when we must face them in our final examinations. At that time, when so many of us are weighed in the Dean ' s balance if we are found wanting--will Pharmacy not be a lost science? ORGANIZATIONS Holt. Crone. Ensign. Veblen. Burge. Hewitt.

The hammond Law Senate AS its name indicates, the Hammond Law Senate is exclusively a Law Society, and was organized for the purpose of a long-felt need in the Law Department—the existence of a permanent literary organization wherein Law students might find that practice in oratorical and general literary work which is so essential to their success. On Saturday, April 20, 1895, fifteen members of the Class of ' 96 assembled in the Political Economy room of the Central Building, the result of their labors being the appointment of a committee, consisting of J. D. J. O ' Connell and A. E. Walsh, to draft constitution and by-laws, together with a name for the new society, and to report the result at the next meeting, on April 27th. The report of this Committee outlining and naming the society as it now exists, was adopted with great enthusiasm, and the following officers were elected: President, L. C. Rinard; Vice President, M. C. Gilmore; Recording Secretary, P. W. Tourtellot; Corresponding Secretary, G. C. Lawrence; Treasurer, W. L. Ryan; Sergeant-at-Arms, J. W. Hayes; Executive D. J. O ' Connell, A. E. Walsh and G. W. Lawrence. All members of the Law Department are eligible to membership in the Hammond Law Senate, and all active members, upon completing the Law course, and graduating therefrom, are entitled to an honorary life membership. The following is a complete list of the membership of the Senate: Charter Members L. C. Rinard, Gordon Hayes, W. L. Ryan, M. E. Geiser, D. J. O ' Connell, J. M. Wilson, H. J. Shutts, P. W.

BURGESS Society was organized in the fall term of 1894, for the purpose of granting to the Law students of ' 96 of the State University of Iowa, an opportunity for improvement in literary With this purpose constantly in view this Society has steadily progressed, and the ability of its members has never been questioned. In a debate and literary contest with the Senior Law Society of ' 95, the Law Literary Society of ' 96 was declared the victor. There have been times in the history of the Society when its internal condition was seriously deranged; when utter dissolution seemed imminent; when there was wanting in some of its members that patriotic devotion so essential to the success of any organization. But the Society lived on to perform the mission for which it was instituted. Roll of Members Arp, H. A. Halpenny, W. H. O ' Brien, F. Burgess, A. W. Hughes, Wm. H. Orton, E. C. Busby, H. E.

The Ivy Ivy sprang up midst the mouldering rooms Of a mansion once stately and fair, Weaving a mantle of beauty and bloom O ' er the ruins, old and bare. Twining its green leaves over each tomb, Robbing the grave of its horror and gloom. The rose of that mansion of prosperous time Hath perished for want of man ' s care; But the Ivy hath lived on, contented to climb, And its verdure hath never grown sere. Creeping away o ' er the ruins so drear With no eye to see it from year unto year. The lily, so pure, hath herself drawn away From the bare wall and rottening sill; But the Ivy disdains neither dearth nor decay But closer clingeth still. Creeping, clambering, running at play O ' er the places of death, so lonely and gray. The storm sweepeth down on the old walls at last, That man hath but reared to forget; Rending in vain the old Ivy plant, That clingeth to their ruins yet. Only the Ivy is left at the last, Twining, clinging, defying the blast, Baconian Club THIS Society organized in the fall of 1885 as a scientific club, with Professor Leonard as President and Professor L. W. Andrews, Secretary. The charter members were S. Calvin, J. G. Gilchrist, L. W. Andrews, A. A. Veblen. The object of the Club is the mutual interchange of thought by those actively engaged in scientific research. The associate membership is quite large and almost wholly composed of students of the scientific courses. Officers PRESIDENT, - - - - - - - - A. L. ARNER SECRETARY AND TREASURER, - - - ARTHUR G.

Work IN 1886 a number of students and professors, who felt that there ought to be an organized effort on the part of the christians of the University met and organized a Young Men ' s Christian Association. This Association grew in numbers and influence until the need of a home for it and the means of extending its work was keenly felt. The result was the erection of Close Hall, which has become a center of student activity.

DURING the month of October, 1868, appeared the first issue of the University Reporter, and one year later during the same month appeared the Vidette, published in the interests of the Hesperian and Zetagathian Literary Societies. The two papers continued to be published independently of each other until 1881, when successful efforts at consolidation were made, and September 17, 1881, what has since been known as the Vidette–Reporter was first ushered into existence. Since that time the Vidette–Reporter has continued to survive, announcing from time to time the numerous items of interest concerning the University and its many friends, until it is now perhaps one of the best available records of the Institution.

This promise has more than been fulfilled, and to-day the State of Iowa can boast of one of the strongest college journals of the west. It is, and ever has been, the object of those in charge to present in a true light the various phases of University life. The editors endeavor, through the aid of the professors and the student body, to bring before its readers not only the local news, but also some of the best literary productions of the Institution which they represent. Much of the success of the paper is due to the hearty cooperation which the Faculties of the various Departments have given it. That the paper will continue to exist and grow stronger and stronger as the years come and go no one can doubt. All that is necessary, is the continued support which it has received in the past. The board for the year wishes to thank its supporters for the interest they have shown, and wishes them one and all, success in life—and to each and all of the readers of the S. U. I. Quill, the board sends greeting. Rigg Keehl. Burtt. Smith. Shorett. Bywater. Hobby. Hamman. Holt. Kelly. Hornibrook. MacFarland. Clark. Keefe. Ro well. Hanson. Kiser. Price.

Beta Theta Beta Theta Pi Fraternity was founded at Miami Ohio, July 1839, by John Riley Knox, Samuel Taylor Marshall, David Linton, James George Smith, Henry Hardin (afterwards Governor of Missouri), John Holt Duncan, Michael Charles Ryan, and Thomas Boston Gordon. Within the first half dozen years after its the fraternity had established twelve chapters, reaching from Michigan in the west to Harvard in the east. Conservatism in the true sense of the word has marked its course, but not that conservatism so-called which is retrogression. The Beta Theta Pi was the pioneer in many of the colleges of the Middle and Western States, as it was also the pioneer organization of its kind west of the Allegheny Mountains. It has extended its chapter list until at present it includes with few exceptions, the best colleges in the country, the number of chapters being sixty-two. Many of these chapters were formed from strong and influential local societies and twice during recent years, namely in and 1889, a union was effected with another chaptered fraternity, by which not only were the chapters brought into the fraternity, but their alumni as well. A magazine, the Beta Theta Ph, is published at regular intervals, and is now in its twenty-third volume. The fraternity has published four general catalogues and has the fifth edition in press, and it has issued seven editions of its Song Book. Its conventions are held annually, and the delegates ' expenses are paid by the general fraternity. The fraternity is one of the oldest, and its membership, both alumni and active, one of the largest. The entire membership being above ten thousand, of which about twelve hundred are students in college, and the annual increase by initiation averages between three hundred and fifty and four hundred members. The State University of Iowa Chapter, the Alpha Beta of Beta Theta Pi, was organized in 1866, and was the first fraternity to be established at the State University. Its total membership being now one hundred and fifty. Beta Theta Pi Founded at Miami University, 1839 Alpha Beta Chapter Established 1866 FRATRES IN URBE Hon.

P. T. Moore and William H. Letterman at Jefferson College, Pennsylvania. Ever since its formation it has enjoyed a steady growth, and now a Chapter is found in the principal colleges of the following States: Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, West Vi rginia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, Kansas, Minnesota, California, and Nebraska. An evidence of its prosperity is the membership which has now reached eight thousand. Iowa Alpha was established in 1867 by C. P. Rogers, was discontinued from 1876 to 1884, when it was reestablished by Ed. E. Dorr, Lovell Swisher, A. E. Swisher, H. H. Monlus, S. N. Fellows, C. L. Joy, R. F. Skiff, and Clarkson. Built on a firm foundation, with a gradual and healthy progress, and a present membership of seventeen, its future is an encouraging one.

After struggling through the years of the Civil War there began a gradual but steady growth that ended in the establishment first in the South, then in the West, then in North and finally in the East, of the Grand Divisions of the Fraternity. At present Delta Tau Delta has thirty-eight active and eleven Alumni Chapters, with a total number of initiates numbering over four thousand. The Fraternity publishes, in addition to secret matter, a quarterly known as the Rainbow, , a semi-literary magazine devoted to the public interests of the Fraternity, while the internal affairs are managed at a general Karnea held in odd numbered years. Chapter Omicron of the State University of Iowa, had its charter granted in the Fall of 1880, and since that date has maintained an active existence, initiating a total of 112 members.

Phi Delta Theta THE Phi Delta Theta Fraternity was founded at Miami University on December the twenty-sixth, eighteen hundred forty eight In its earliest conception there was the idea of making it a national organization, and before its first anniversary it had established itself at Indiana University, and before the second year had expired, at Centre College. Its growth, which had been rapid, was checked by the Civil War. At the close of the war only four Chapters remained active, but many more were soon revived when the excitement of the war had passed. During the period closely following the Civil War, the growth of Phi Delta Theta was most rapid especially eastwards. In eighteen hundred seventy-one, the Fraternity entered Georgia, and from that point began its growth among the southern States. Its first important step eastwards was to enter the University of Vermont in eighteen hundred seventy-nine, and from thence it spread among the surrounding States. In eighteen hundred eighty-three, there were forty-four active with a membership of three thousand three hundred and sixty-seven. In eighteen hundred ninety-five the Fraternity has sixty-nine active College Chapters with a membership of over nine thousand, and twenty-seven active Alumni Chapters. The Fraternity at present is divided into six provinces, each having its president, secretary, treasurer, and historian, and holding conventions, alternating with the national conventions. In eighteen hundred eighty one, the Fraternity was incorporated under the State laws of Ohio. It has issued six catalogues, and several song books. The official publication of the Fraternity is the Scroll, and is issued five times during the college year. The Iowa Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta was chartered on March the twenty-seventh, eightee n hundred eighty-two. The charter members were H. A. Cole, C. H. Dayton, J. B. French, J. L. Kennedy, W. S. P. L. Sever, W. George, C. L. Gillis, and W. L. Park. The Iowa Beta Chapter has initiated one hundred and ten members, and is at present enjoying a steady growth with an active membership of fifteen.

It was not formerly confined to collegiate institutions, but to-day Chapters are located only in colleges of the highest standard and none but college students are eligible to membership. Supreme power is vested in biennial conventions and during the interim the affairs of the Fraternity are controlled by a Grand Council consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Grand Guide and Censor. The periodical journal is the Arrow, and a song book and hand book are also published. The badge is a dainty arrow bearing the letters Pi Beta Phi transversely across the feather. There is a membership of fifteen hundred divided among the chapters. " Zeta " Chapter was organized in February, 1882. Since its founding some of its members have had the honor of filling at different times all the offices in the Grand Council. The biennial convention met in Iowa City in and Mrs. Nell Custer Swisher was chosen as Grand President for ' 84- ' 85, and to the initiative steps in reorganization and policy taken by Mrs. Swisher and Miss Mira Trotl , editor-in-chief of Arrow from ' 85- ' 91, are due to a great extent the strength and in fluence of Pi Beta Phi to-day. During the years that have passed since Iowa Zeta came into existence, many active members have been added who maintained not only a high of scholarship during their connection with the University but are and honored members in their various vocations. Twelve active members now ably represent Pi Beta Phi in the various departments of college activity, including music and literary work. By the establishment of a Chapter House Fund Zeta Chapter hopes at no distant day to occupy her own home.

Kappa Gamma KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA was founded at Monmouth College, October 13, 1870, with five charter members. A to establish there a chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, which had been founded a few months before at DePauw, led to the founding of this, the second woman ' s Greek Letter Fraternity. The constitution was framed with a view to such extension as would be consistent with a high standard. K K Γ has thus a long roll of twenty-six active Chapters. Within late years the position of the Fraternity in regard to enlargement of its roll has become very conservative. The executive power of the Fraternity was at first lodged in the parent Chapter, but this form of government h aving become inadequate, the present system was organized after the death of the parent Chapter at Monmouth College, whose faculty passed anti-fraternity laws in 1878. The executive power is now vested in a Grand Council of five members elected by the which meets every two years. Each of the four provinces is on the Grand Council, the offices being held in rotation. The fifth member, the editor-in-chief of the Key, is elected from the Chapter editing that magazine. The Council holds a session on the years alternating with the and conducts the affairs of the Fraternity. In 1881 the journal of the Fraternity first appeared under the title of the Golden Key. It was the first magazine to be published by a woman ' s and was largely an experiment. It was very successfully managed for five years by Miss Winetta Taylor, of Iota Chapter, DePauw University. In Phi Chapter of Boston University was given charge of the publication of the Key and enlarged and improved it in many ways. The convention of 1894 gave the management of the Key to Pi Chapter of Cornell University. At first the Key contained articles of general interest, but for many years it has been devoted exclusively to the interests of Kappa Kappa Gamma. The nine charter members of Beta Zeta Chapter received their charter May 23,1882. Beta Zeta has always had a prosperous existence and has varied little in character from year to year owing to its conservative policy. From 1882 to this Chapter was represented upon the Council by Flora Clapp, Grand Marshal, At the last convention Beta Zeta was honored by the election of Annabel Collins, ' 94, as Grand Treasurer, and the appointment of Helen Currier, ' 96, as her deputy.

SIGMA NU SIGMA Nu was was first organized in January, 1869, at Military Institute, Lexington, Virginia. Comparatively little progress was made during the first decade of its existence, chiefly owing to the action of hostile faculties in colleges and universities, where the Fraternity had planted Chapters. Many of the early Chapters, Alpha, the first organized, were thus banished by the enforcement of laws. Virginia Military Institute has been quite a prominent fraternity center, Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Sigma Kappa, and Sigma Nu dating their origin from this institution. In addition to these Beta Theta Pi, Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi, and Phi Delta Theta, have maintained Chapters there. All were forced to disband in 1885 when the Board of Visitors prohibited all organizations among the cadets, excepting the two cadet Literary Societies. Alpha Chapter of Sigma Nu had an awakening in 1876-77, and imparted some of her zeal to other Chapters then existing, but the permanent organization of Sigma Nu as known in the history of American College Fraternities dates from the autumn of 1882, when a vigorous Chapter was established and mantained at and Lee University, and later that at the University of Virginia was reorganized. It was during this time that the official journal was first published and named the Delta in commemoration of the three Chapters who founded it. From then until the present time the Fraternity has had a most vigorous and progressive growth, considering the fact that it is the youngest of College fraternities.

THE Phi Delta Phi (Law) Fraternity was founded by John M. James E. Howell, A. E. Hawes, W. S. Beebe, A.. M. Monteith, John B. Cleland and J. D. Ronan, at the Law Department of the University of Michigan, December 13, 1869. The purpose was from the very organization, to extend the society, by granting chapters to law schools of recognized standing, and thereby to add to its influence and bring into closer relation the students in these several schools. In this respect the society was modeled after the existing Greek letter college fraternities, but it has differed from these societies, in the plan of its elections to membership. Membership in any of the college fraternities is no bar to membership in Phi Delta Phi, and it is the settled policy of the fraternity not to antagonize the existing social or literary institutions in the schools into which it enters, and it never attempts to rival any existing law clubs or societies, but draws its in many instances from them all. The fraternity, although having a Greek name, does not assume the same air of secrecy as that assumed by the college fraternities. Its motto, grip and pass words are not communicated to outsiders, but no special secrecy attaches to its constitution, policy or tendencies, and it takes upon itself rather the plan of a law literary society than that of a social organization. The names of the local chapters are chosen from those members of the legal profession, who are prominent either as jurists, text writers or teachers. The McClain Chapter was organized December 16, George A. Katzenberger, of the Kent Chapter, General Secretary of the fraternity being present and conducting the installation ceremonies.

Phi Beta Kappa Founded at College of William and Mary, December 5, 1776 Alpha of Iowa Established September 11, 1895 Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded at the College of and Mary, Virginia, December 5, 1776, as a Senior Society. Many names illustrious in the history of the early days of the nation are among its earliest promoters, and although the society was the pioneer of the College Greek Letter Societies, it has always had a character entirely distinct from them. It has none of the characteristics of a secret, social, fraternal organization, the elements which specially distinguish the college fraternities, except that it has assumed a Greek name. It is preeminently a literary society, only those members of the class who have attained a high standard in scholarship are offered Literature and the Classics were given from the very first a place in the courses leading to eligibility to the society and this policy has been adhered to ever since. Its badge, a key, is highly esteemed because it distinguishes the wearer as having been on the honor list of his class. The control of the local Chapters is largely in the hands of those of the society, who are members of the faculty, and its elections are given, not as a matter of social preference, but because of high scholarship. The charter of the Alpha Chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa in the State of Iowa was granted to the State University, September 11, 1895, by the National Council of the United Chapters of the Society in Convention at Saratoga, New York. The charter members being President Charles A. Schaeffer, Dean Amos N. Currier, Professors Charles Bundy Wilson, James A. Rohbach, Elbert W. Rockwood and William C. Wilcox.

The owner, who was sitting in the parlor to the farmer ' s daughter, was a young man fully aware of Mr. Warren ' s inclinations towards him but, since a temporary cessation of hostilities had been arranged, he was not at all disturbed when he heard the sound of wagon wheels at the gate, and kept right on with the which was truly interesting. Lovers ' talks usually are interesting - to themselves at any rate -and if they are content what business is it of ours whether the topics are very weighty or not? But truly, Miles Graham was on far better footing with Helen Warren than he was with Mr. Warren, her father. That his daughter should prefer the company of a poor, struggling town lawyer, who rode out on a bicycle to see her, and was without the prospect of a cent beyond what he might gain by his own efforts, to that of any of a dozen neighbor boys each with spick-span box-buggyy and high stepping horse and a prospect of soon possessing the seemed to Mr. Warren bad enough. But that she should fall in love with him and have the face to say that she wanted to marry him, why that was simply preposterous. To make the whole affair more ridiculous and yet at the same time more serious, the mother sided with her daughter. Now no reasonable man in a position like Farmer Warren ' s could hold out long against an only daughter ' s pleadings and a wife ' s plainly and firmly expressed opinions, so a compromise had been arranged which the diplomatic father trusted would settle the matter. Taking advantage of the girl ' s in her lover, he had been able to delude her (as thought) into an agreement which would, through no fault of her ' s, rob her of him. It is common in many counties of our Western States for the office of County Attorney to fall to young lawyers. While the salary is quite good, the work involved, the riding about a sparsely settled country searching taking depositions, and the like is distasteful to older men, and unless their practice is poor, they do not present themselves for the position. Miles Graham had accordingly obtained his party ' s nomination for the place without much trouble; all the more readily perhaps since his party had not elected a man in that particular county in years. Mr. Warren, too, had considered this last fact when he planned his feat of diplomacy. He had reasoned to himself in this wise, for as he expressed it, he " was a pretty good hand to look at all sides of a question before he made up his mind. " " Helen wants to marry that young Graham. Her mother is willing. I don ' t see why. Helen could have her pick of a dozen fellows around here each with his farm and able to keep her, and here she takes this young sprig of a lawyer that has the hardest kind of a time to keep body and soul together. I can ' t understand it, but there ' ll be a row certain if I say right short off that I won ' t have it, and that he ' s got to stop coming around here. Helen ' s too spirited to stand it. But if she ' ll just consider the money side of it a little I ' ll be all right, she has enough of her father in her for that. " Graham, he expects to get a start from his office, if he ' s elected, that will put him into a paying practice. Well he will, if he ' s elected, for he ' s smart, they say. But he has n ' t the ghost of a show of being elected, his party has n ' t had an office here for years. I won ' t tell Helen so though. I ' ll talk to her like this: You are going to marry young Graham, are you? What are you going to live on? He can ' t keep you, I won ' t keep you both and I ' m not going to let my daughter starve. ' Oh! ' she ' ll say, we ' ll manage some way. If Miles gets elected— ' If he does, that ' s different, ' I ' ll say, maybe I ' ll hear to it then. ' " Such was the planned conversation. The real one was more decided, more earnest than this coldly mapped out dialogue, and it ended with a promise on both sides—Helen saying that Miles should be sacrificed if he was not elected; the father promising to give full consent to the wedding if he And from the date of that momentous agreement, there was a new opponent to Graham ' s apparently hopeless campaign. You would have thought, almost, that Farmer Warren was running for an office himself. He attended the political meetings throughout the county with a fidelity entirely against his former custom. He was scrupulously friendly to all his old acquaintances. He nodded and spoke pleasantly to every one he met on the roads, and was ready to start a conversation upon the " crops " and kindred subjects. He grew confidential upon short notice, and on these occasions his remarks were interesting. " Now Jones (or Smith or whoever it might be), between you and me, I don ' t think it makes much difference who we elect this fall, one man is about as good as another. " Mr. Jones assents, inwardly wondering what this can mean coming as it does from a man who last year distinguished himself by calling those who differed with his political belief " traitors to law " and " enemies of our public institutions. " " Yes " Warren showing more and more a wish to do the square thing and not to let his party spirit run away with his better judgment, " on the whole, the two tickets are just about alike, but even you ' ll have to admit that your candidate for County Attorney has n ' t had the experience that our man, Hadley, has had. Jones admits with perhaps a tinge of sarcasm that if he " means by experience stitting around an office twenty years waiting for clients " why, their man is deficient. " Well now, neighbor, I don ' t want you to get warmed up about it, but you just think over what I ' ve said. " Jones closes his side with a last thrust, " I should n ' t think you ' d be out working against your son-in-law that-is-to-be, so the women folks say. " " Son-in-law, or no son-in-law, I want the county provided for before my own private interests, " nobly answers Warren, and the talk is at an end. Jones, who knows the whole secret from those same " women folks, " is not much touched by his parting sentiment however. " Warren thinks he ' s pretty smooth, " he says to himself, " but that young Graham is going to run pretty hard. He ' s young and active and full of snap but you ' d have to sight along a line of fence to see old Hadley move. " And he was right about the contest, but even he, did not appreciate how close the result would really be. Various local causes had well nigh old party lines in the county that fall. The hot fight for the State ticket had placed money and speakers in the hands of the previously despised and poor minority. The leaders of the majority, confident from the of easy victories of former years, had been resting calmly, the surprise in store for them. Luckily for themselves, they awoke a few days before election and began to put some life into their campaign. The minority, encouraged by a hope of success, the first in years, were working as they never had before. The majority, terrified at the thought of losing their places, used every art known to them. The county was more thoroughly excited than it had been in years. All this, Warren, on the day we first met him, had learned from his central committeeman. We will give some other news he heard. " That would-be-son-in-law of yours is the most popular man on their ticket. The people have got hold of some yarn about his having a bride dependent on his winning and there ' ll be a whole lot of them romantic enough to throw away their votes to help him out. He ' ll get most of the young element sure and some of the old fools, too. If we had a good man up against him I would n ' t feel so shaky, but Hadley ' s about as much good as an old stump when it comes to making a lively canvass. " I told him yesterday he ' d have look out or he ' d get beat, but he only grinned and said, he guessed he ' d pull through if the rest of the ticket did. ' It ' s no use trying to scare him, he ' s too lazy to care. " After such information, no wonder that Warren felt like throwing that innocent bicycle out into .the road. Inwardly he could not help admiring Graham ' s popularity and grit. He had really had no definite objections to him before, but he had been unwilling to part with his daughter yet for some time, and so had taken the first means at hand to put her off, he assured Financial scruples were fast disappearing, but it piqued his pride to be beaten in a bargain of his own making. The idea of having set such a nice little trap for himself was maddening. When he had put up the team, and gone in to eat the late supper saved for him his wife noticed that something was out of sorts with him. She was a large, good natured woman who believed in taking things much as they came and was seldom disturbed at anything her family did, going upon the theory, that one of her children could not commit any very great error in judgment. After watching him silently for a while, at length she broke out, " Well, for the land ' s sake, Jabez Warren, what ' s happened to you in town, to-day? You look as if you had n ' t a friend on earth! " Jabez did not see fit to reply, so his wife made up her mind that he was in one of his " spells " and did not disturb him farther. When, perhaps an hour later, Miles had ridden silently away, Helen entered the room. As she came in she caught a warning glance from her mother that told her the father was in no mood to be trifled with. It, had no effect on her high spirits and she broke into the old gentleman ' s reverie in a truly modern style: " Dad, I ' ll bet you two to one that Miles is elected! " She got no reply except a contemptuous sort of growl, " Hm. " " Well, just wait and see. You know it yourself, and that ' s why you won ' t say anything, " and out she went into the kitchen whence might soon be heard snatches of the " latest popular songs. " Diplomatic relations were surely on a slightly strained footing in the family. Happily this state of affairs had not long to endure, for the next Tuesday was election day. Farmer Warren and John, his hired man, went to the polls early. As this was the first time the Australian system had been used in the county, Warren thought a little advice might not come amiss to the hired man, and so he ventured: " This new ballot ' s got a whole lot of red tape about it, and we don ' t want to make any mistakes in the way we vote. There ' s a whole lot of directions tacked up there, but they don ' t amount to much. We want to vote a straight ticket, and all we ' ve got to do is scratch out the other one that we don ' t want. " He was as good as his word, and John followed his example. It was yet early in the day when they left the polling booths with a proud that having done their own duty they were ready to help their fellow citizens in the performance of theirs. Perhaps the brightness of the day before them would have been dimmed, had they known that they had deposited two perfectly illegal and useless ballots. As it was, they spent a very pleasant day, for if there is anything the average American enjoys, it is the atmosphere of political excitement the polls during a close election. It has an effect upon him like that of ozone upon his lungs. He grows nervous, is ready to get into violent discussions with his neighbors, to run up and down at the call of some petty leader, to do anything, in fact, that he thinks will benefit his side. If he is asked to do nothing he will hang around all day, if he has no pressing business, in the hope that he may be. Some men are not so affected, yet there is much to interest them in what they see. The carriages driving up in haste and dropping their loads of voters who otherwise would not have been able to attend the election, the little groups, here and there, each surrounding two men engaged in heated argument--the bigger groups which form with speed at intervals about two partisans engaging in yet more heated arguments in which fists rather than facts are potent weapons; all these things add a charm peculiar to such occasions. T he day passed quickly enough then to those in town, but it seemed to the girl in the country as if night would never come, and when at last the dusk mellowed the strong brilliancy of the autumn landscape she found it just as hard to endure the few hours that still remained until she should know the news, and find out whether she had a lover received by her family with favor, or one whom she must coldly turn away in payment of an absurd bet. Until that time she had had not the least uncertainty about Miles ' but when now it was all decided and she waited but the news, her courage failed her. She knew she could not keep her agreement if she lost. She felt she could not pay her " debts of honor " as sporting gentlemen would say, but still she meant to collect them to the last penny. When at length she went to bed she could not sleep until late in the night she heard the sound of wagon wheels in the yard, then she recognized her father ' s voice upon the still night air, saying in a resigned tone, " Well, John, we did our best anyway. " That was all, but somehow she knew it meant that Miles had won and her troubled thoughts took flight in slumber. And Miles had won, but not until the last vote had been counted had his election been certain, The returns had arrived slowly, it was noticed that everywhere Graham was ahead of his ticket, but with every township but one heard from he had a bare tie with his opponent. The township yet out was Richland, the home of the Warrens, and in former years a giver of large majorities for his enemies. As his friends expressed it, his affairs " looked sick. " Mr. Warren congratulated himself. It was near one o ' clock in the morning before the last vote was counted. The unusual amount of scratching done made the work of the officers difficult. A peculiar thing was, that there were but two illegal ballots out of all the large vote cast. There were but few watchers left to hear the result. The clerk read the returns until he came to— " For County Attorney,—Graham, 159; Hadley, 158. " Two men went quietly out at the door, they were Mr. Warren and the hired man. Silently they hitched up the sleepy horses and started for home. It was a quiet journey. Just all that was offered for mutual consolation will never be known. Their last remark Helen had heard. Early the next morning, in fact before the farmer ' s very early breakfast, Miles arrived. He found the whole family ready to meet him, and had to run a gauntlet of congratulations. Helen had less to say than any of them. Lovers do not need to say much to make each other understand. They never can express all they feel, for when they can they are no longer lovers. Of course, Miles had to stay to breakfast, the old farmer himself giving the invitation, he having resolved to carry out his side of the bargain In the course of the meal while they were discussing " got beat " and " how big a majority So and So had, " Miles said: " The best thing about my little majority of one was that it was given me by two fellows who tried to vote against me. " " Why, how ' s that? " " Well, one of the judges told me—perhaps he did n ' t have any right the only two illegal ballots in Richland township were against me apparently, my whole ticket was scratched off. If they had been legal Hadley would have had the one in place of me. " Warren and the hired man never said a word but looked volumes at each other. What they said when they reached the barn is shrouded in mystery and blue smoke. THE TABARD. A Turkish Quandary THE Turkey sat with his tail adroop, ' T was the week ' fore Thanksgiving Day. A rumor was floating about the coop, That the mischief would be to pay. He had gobbled a gob, he had strutted a strut, He had waxed full sleek and fat, That was long, long ago; ' t was all right then, but He now said— " Where am I at! " A SUMMER NIGHT THE sun, within a cloud of red, Has sunk to rest, The sky is scattered o ' er with stars, The world by Heaven is blest, And countless blossoms scent the air, With perfumes rare and sweet, A thousand murmurings greet the ear The sounds we fain would keep, When the dew is falling. A Winter Night THe snow comes flying through the air, On silent wing, No little birds come from their nests, Their evening songs to sing. The moon behind its cloudy bars, Sheds forth its light serene, The earth is covered o ' er with white, The hills with diamonds gleam, When the snow is falling. IVY LANE. Thor and the Giant Translated from theYounger Edda by Albert E . Egge. THAT is the beginning of this tale that Oku-Thor (Thor the Driver) was journeying with his goats and chariot, and with him the Ans (god) who is called Loki. They come in the evening to a bonder, and there get lodgings for the night. But in the evening Thor took his goats and killed them both ; after that they were flayed and put into the kettle, and when the flesh was boiled, Thor and his companion sat down to their evening meal. Thor invited the bonder and his wife and their children to eat with him; the son of the bonder hight Thjalfi, and the daughter Roskva. Then Thor laid the out from the fire, and said the bonder and his household should throw the bones on the goat-skins. Thjalfi, the son of the bonder, held a thigh-bone of the goat, struck at it with his knife, and broke it to the marrow. Thor tarried there over night. But in the early morning before dawn he rose and dressed, took his hammer Mjolnir, swung it aloft, and hallowed the then the goats got up, and one was la me of the hind leg. That Thor saw, and said that the bonder or his household could not have dealt carefully with the bones of the goat; he felt that the thigh-bone was broken. It needs not to make a long story of it; all may know how frightened the bonder must be when he saw that Thor let the eyebrows sink down over his eyes; but at what he saw of the eyes he thought he must fall down at the mere sight; he hardened his hands about the hammer-shaft so that the knuckles whitened. But the bonder did as was to be expected, and all his household; they called loudly, begged for peace, and offered that all they had should be given as a compensation. But when he saw their fear, his anger left him, and he was pacified; and for a pledge he took from them their children, Thjalfi and Roskva; and they were then made Thor ' s bound servants, and they follow him ever after. He then left his goats behind, and began his journey east into Jotunheim, and all the way to the ocean. And then he went out over the deep sea; and when he came to land, he went up, and with him Loki and Thjalfi and Roskva. 1 Yeoman, freeholder. When they had then walked a little while, they came to a great wood; they walked all that day until dark. Thjalfi was of all men the fleetest of foot; he carried Thor ' s bag, but provisions were not easy to get. When it had become dark, they looked for night-quarters, and they found before them a hall of great size; there was a door in the end, and as wide as the hall. There they looked for a place to sleep. But at midnight there was a great earthquake, the ground under them shook, and the house trembled. Then Thor arose and called to his companions; and they felt their way and found a side room to the right in the middle of the hall, and went thither. Thor seated himself in the door; but the others were within, and they were afraid; but Thor held his hammer-shaft and was minded to defend himself. Then they heard a great noise and din. But when dawn came. Thor went out and saw where a man lay a short distance from him in the wood, and he was not small; he slept, and snored loudly. Then Thor thought he understood what kind of noises there had been during the night; he buckled his girdle of strength about him, and his divine strength grew; and then the man awoke and quickly got up. But then it is said that Thor for once was afraid to strike him with the hammer. He asked his name, and he said it was Skrymir; " but I need not, " said he, " ask thy name: I know thou art Asa-Thor (divine Thor) ; but hast thou dragged away my glove? " Then Skrymir stretched out his hand and took up his glove. Thor then saw that that was what he had had for a hall during the night; but the side-room was the thumb of the glove. Skrymir asked if Thor would have his company, and Thor consented. Then Skrymir took his bag and opened it, and made ready to eat breakfast; and Thor and his companions in another place. Skrymir then proposed that they should make their provisions into a common store, and Thor consented. Then Skrymir tied all their provisions into one bag, and laid it on his back. He walked ahead during the day, and took rather long strides; and later, in the evening, Skrymir found night-quarters for them under a great oak. Then Skrymir said to Thor that he would lie down to sleep; " but do ye take the and prepare your supper. " Thereupon Skrymir fell asleep, and snored loudly; and Thor took the provision-bag, and was about to open it. But thus is the account, which may seem incredible, that he was not able to untie a knot or move a thong-end, so that they became looser than before. And when he saw that this job would not succeed, he became wroth, grasped his hammer Mjolnir in both his hands, and with one foot stepped up to where Skrymir lay, and struck him in the head; but Skrymir awoke, and asked if a leaf had fallen on his head, and whether they had then eaten and were ready to sleep. Thor said they would then go to sleep. They then went under another oak. To tell the truth, it was not then safe to sleep. But at midnight Thor hears that Skrymir snores, and is fast asleep, so that the wood resounds. Then he rises and goes to him, swings his hammer quickly and violently, and strikes him in the middle of the crown; he feels that the thin end of the sinks down deep into the head. Then Skrymir awoke and said, " What is the matter now? Did an acorn fall on my head? Or what is the matter with thee, Thor? " Thor quickly went back, and answered that he had just awaked; he said it was then midnight, and there was still time to sleep. Then Thor thought that if he got a chance to strike him a third blow, should never see him again. He now lies and watches for Skrymir to fall fast asleep, and a little before dawn he hears that Skrymir must have gone to sleep. Then he rises and runs up to him, swings his hammer with all his might, and strikes the temple that turned up; the hammer sinks in to the shaft. But Skrymir sat up and stroked his temple and said, " Are birds sitting in the tree above me? Methought when I awoke that rubbish fell from the branches on my head; art thou awake, Thor? It must be time to get up and dress, and ye have not now a long way to go to the castle which is called Utgard. I have heard that ye have whispered amongst you that I am not a small man of growth; but ye shall see larger men when ye come to Utgard. Now I will give you a good advice: do not act bigly; the courtiers of Utgarda-Loki may not put up with boasting from such little fellows as you; but another choice is to turn back, and this I deem it better for you to take. But if ye wish to proceed, then take your course to the east, but my way lies northward to those mountains which ye may now see. " Skrymir took the provision-bag, threw it over his shoulder, and turned quickly away from them into the wood; and it is not told that the Anses then wished they might meet him again in health. Green Satin Gown GREEN satin gown, to me you seem, As though I saw you in a dream, Of some now half forgot romance, Wherein your lady ' s gracious glance Deep in my heart wrote down a theme That seemed must make my life supreme. Ah well! your lustrous folds, I deem, Did much, her beauty to enhance, Green satin gown. For fancy floats on memory ' s stream, And weaves a spell of your bright gleam By which I see the elves of chance Adorn your mistress for life ' s And blend you with her sweet eye ' s beam Green satin gown, THE TABARD. A Revery I AM sitting by the fire as it flickers, rises, falls, Throwing frantic shadows on the dim and gloomy walls. Sitting idly dreaming, Phantom thoughts are teeming Through my mind, and seeming Useless as they gather at the sound of memory ' s call. I am sitting deeply thinking, and the time almost before I am conscious that it ' s here, has vanished like forgotten lore, Sitting sadly thinking, And my heart is sinking As my memory ' s linking, Failure with the moments that are gone forever more. Weary, as I live them, are the decades that are done. Dreary, as I see them are the years, perchance, to come. How the wind is roaring! How the rain is pouring! As the night is low ' ring O ' er my life, despairing, friendless, passing to its home. Help me,O thou great Creator, when my life goes out at last; Guide me, O thou great Redeemer, for alone my lot is cast; Keep me by thy power, Cheer my lonely hour As with dread I cower, ' Fore a future that reechoes only failures of the past. THE TABARD. June Roses ONE June afternoon, not many Junes ago, Marjory Gleeson, a sweet slender girl of twenty-two or thereabouts, stood with scissors in hand and contemplated the roses climbing over the picturesque piazza of her little home. It was not an unusual sight for the neighbors to see Marjory contemplate the rose bushes, or to see her snip off the most blossoms and carefully trim the thorns. But even an unobserving might have wondered why Marjory always smiled so thoughtfully, when she sorted her roses, and why it was that when caught in her pretty a dainty blush spread over her face, so that she looked much like a June rose herself. In fact, these same neighbors had never remembered Marjory in June, without her roses. They and she, too, would have felt that there was something lacking in her toilet, if as long as the roses continued to bloom, there was not one twisted in her brown hair, or a hunch of them at her waist. When Marjory had made her choice on this afternoon, she turned slowly back into the house, admiring them as she went. Her mother stood at the door watching her, and although Marjory seemed to be wrapped up in her own thoughts, she ventured to say, " I don ' t believe the roses have ever been more beautiful than they are this year. Does n ' t it seem so to you? " The dainty flush overspread Marjory ' s cheeks, as she looked up at her mother. Mrs. Gleeson alone understood it, and with motherly af fection gathered her daughter into her arms. After a minute she said: " I ' m afraid Scott will not see my girl in June roses, this year, if what I hear is true. " Marjory looked up at her quickly and reproachfully. What had her mother heard about Scott Slater, which she had not told to her immediately. Why, if he was coming home soon, would he not see her in June roses? A thousand thoughts chased themselves through the mind of the simple, modest girl, while she waited for her mother to say, that she had just seen an announcement in the paper that Scott Slater, who had now finished his course in law, taking off the highest honors of his class, had accepted a position with a prominent lawyer in the east and would not be home for several months. " You will probably hear this afternoon at Slater ' s, from Alice, if this is true, " said her mother, following Marjory ' s glance to the pink roses. Marjory was not a girl of many words, when she felt deeply over anything, so she turned upstairs and thoughtfully made ready to go to spend the afternoon together with several other girls at the home of Alice Slater, Scott ' s sister. She twisted her brown curls into an easy roll and put on the simple white dress, which lay ready for her fresh from the laundry. As she picked up the roses, a tear drop fell upon one. which she hastily shook off. Marjory was a girl of thorough good sense, if she was sentimental about her own and Scott Slater ' s fondness for June roses. " Don ' t be a baby! " she said to herself in the glass in a very practical way, and then she looked at Scott ' s picture, not far away and said saucily, " Well, it ' s a good thing you have something better to fill your mind this summer than Marjory and pink roses. " As she fastened the flowers in her dress, two fell upon the bureau in front of her, and she laughingly picked up the bud and put it at the foot of Scott ' s picture. Then as an idea struck her, the smile died away, and she picked up the full-blown rose instead and placed it at his feet as it were, and fastened the bud in her hair. Then she went to the lawn party, resolved to be her own light-hearted, merry self, and that no one should know that she had actually shed a tear, because Scott would not come home before the June roses faded. As she walked slowly along, she saw, through the tall picket fence, which surrounded the Slater place, Alice moving about between the trees and rose bushes, as she merrily kept up the conversation between the girls. At the gate, Marj ory met Sarah Dynnes, at the sight of whom, she always quaked. For Sarah Dynnes was so tall and dark and haughty and rich, and besides she was quite too fond of Scott Slater to find favor in Marjory ' s eyes. " Good afternoon, Miss Gleeson ! " said Sarah Dynnes, in such a friendly manner that Marjory immediately became suspicious. As they walked up the gravel path together, Marjory ' s eyes followed Miss Dynnes ' to the stable in the distance, where a tall, dark figure standing beside a horse, could be through the trees. Marjory stopped quite still, while her heart sank and all the rosy color left her cheeks. Had Scott come home and she not known it? She recollected herself, soon, when Sarah Dynnes said gaily, " I don ' t suppose you know that Scott came home early this morning, on a flying visit. He goes back to-morrow to accept an elegant position! can ' t imagine how handsome he has grown, and he has a moustache that is divine! " Marjory was silent. She dared not look again at the figure behind the trees, for fear Sarah Dynnes would see her and openly make some cutting remark, but she knew that Scott had mounted the horse, had paused for a moment for a word with the hired man, and was coming down the gravel drive at a moderate pace. At the spot where the drive crossed the walk, something dropped and a minute later, Scott ' s horse had trampled on and crushed—Marjory ' s roses! Marjory looked up in time to receive a polite tip from the rider, and the overwhelming feeling of surprise and pain was soon swallowed up by one of as Sarah Dynnes gaily called out— " Oh Scott; wait a minute, I want to speak to you! " ii As Marjory came up to Alice and the others gathered around the porch she heard behind her the voices of the two talking in a strangely familiar tone. " Why, Marjory Gleeson! " said Alice, " where are your June roses? you don ' t look a bit natural without them, my dear! I never would have believed you would forget them. " The afternoon was a long drawn out one for Marjory. It was with a great effort that she joined in the conversation, and her thoughts were continually upon Scott. She could have forgiven him for not writing her when he was coming, but she had never expected that he would greet her with merely a cool nod. It was too much. For the first time, Marjory realized how full of love her heart was. It pained her to hear Alice tell of his glowing success at the late commencement, and once when the others had all gone off to the garden to see a wonderful bed of pansies, Marjory lingered in front, longing to be alone for a moment, and wishing that the day were over. As she sat with her head resting on the settee, there was a step on the gravel path, behind her, and in a moment more Scott Slater stood beside her, a bunch of fresh pink roses in his hand. Marjory knew they were from her own vine at home and knew too that they were a peace-offering, as he said, with his eyes intent upon her face, " Marjory, I could n ' t bear to see you without your June roses and your mother helped me pick these for you. It was cruel of me to trample upon the others. Let me pin these here. " Marjory made no objections. She opened her lips to speak to him, but he said quickly, " Not now, Marjory. They are coming back ! me. Will you go boat-riding with me after tea? I ' ll explain to Alice. Will you go as soon as it is over? " " Yes, but there was no time for more. Scott had taken one leap over the piazza railing and had disappeared through a long window in the parlor, just as Alice, Sarah Dynnes, and the others turned the corner. Marjory was quite taken aback, but was no longer unhappy. It did not seem long before she was walking down the gravel path, by the side of Scott, and she knew that Sarah Dynnes ' jealous, curious eyes were following them. Some way Marjory understood how it all was before they had gone a block. She forgave Scott and sympathized deeply with him, at the same time at the funny way in which he told how Sarah Dynnes " dogged his " Having changed her white lawn for a blue outing-suit, Marjory soon found herself seated in a small boat, with Scott before her plying the oars. She was her own merry, girlish self again and refused to believe Scott, when he said that he was going back early in the morning. They chattered about their childish days, the past good times, his bright plans for the future, and meanwhile the sun sank in the west in a glorious bed of crimson and purple, reflecting itself in the water, which smooth as glass, scarcely showed the ripple of the oars as they were lightly dipped. A tinkling bell announced the coming of a herd of cows, and soon they appeared meandering towards the river for their evening drink. In single file, they walked to the end of the peak of land which extended into the river, and wading in up to their knees, each buried her nose in the water. Marjory was silent as she took in the scene of the departing day and dawning night. The pale moon rose and there were no sounds save those of the drowsy, good-night twitters of the birds which filled the woods on either si de. Scott was watching her peaceful face, when suddenly she said in her bright, childish way and looking right past him, as if she had gone crazy, " Star light, star bright, First star I ' ve seen to-night. Give me three wishes And I ' ll give you three kisses. " " Now I ' m going to wish three wishes " she said gaily, " and when I am through, you must ask me a question, which can be answered by ' yes, ' and then my wishes will come true! I can ' t talk until I say ' yes. ' Don ' t you remember; we used to do that sometimes, when we were children? You can try it, too, when I am through. " Her eyes were fixed on Venus, the evening star. Scott dipped his oars and watched her count off her wishes. Something made Marjory look grave as she touched the first finger on her left hand, as having completed her first wish. Scott wondered what Marjory might be longing for. As the second finger was drawn down, a perplexed expression passed over her face, one which made Scott think she must have been making a mathematical which did n ' t prove, but as the third finger drooped, he wondered at the playful smile, which lurked about the corners of her mouth and at the faint blush which covered her countenance and always made Marjory look so much like her favorite June rose. The third wish was made and Marjory sat at him, with expectant eyes and her lips firmly closed, until she could say the magic " yes. " Scott drew in his oars and let the boat float as it would. He cast a lordly look, as if master of the situation, over the surrounding scene and then began. In a quiet, manly way he told her of all the love for her in his heart, which had been there so long, that it had grown part of him, soul and body, that he could no longer keep it secret, but that she must have it. She had heard him tell his plans, but she had not heard half of them. Life could have no brilliant successes for him, unless she was to share them with him. Scott Slater poured out his eloquent story into Marjory ' s ears, while she sat silent and looked at Venus again. Her right hand still clutched the third finger of her left, and she was thinking of her third wish. Scott took that finger in his own hand, and this was what Marjory must answer " yes " to, if her three wishes were to come true. " Marjory, will you let me put this ring of mine on this finger? Marjory, will you be my wife? " One, two, three. Marjory was rehearsing her wishes to herself. First: that mother might be able to raise the mortgage off their little home before the summer was over. Second That mother might take the restful little summer trip, she had planned for her. Third: Ah, that was what made Marjory look like a June rose, that that Scott really loved her. Should she say " yes " and charm these wishes to come true? Oh, Marjory! You well know that it was superstition least of all, which made you whisper " yes " into Scott ' s willing ears. " And Marjory, " said Scott that night, when he said good-bye, " we will be married next year, when the June roses are blooming and my Marjory will be the most perfect rose in the lot! " Scott had forgotten to make his three wishes on Venus, but what more could that fair goddess of love and beauty have given him? IVY LANE. Song T0-DAY is more than future years, And action brings the sweetest rest; Who lingers gives a sword to fears, And fear makes cowards of the best. Doing is victory, dreams defeat- The victor rushes to the fray And out the battle ' s sweat and heat Bears forth his coronal of bay. Let poets sing the golden age- They are but empty dreamers still. Each earnest work er is the sage Who brings the golden age at will. So cast the lotus fruit aside, And thrust the sickle to the grain; The harvest fields are rich and wide, And toiling will not be in vain. WM. R. PERKINS.1 Late Professor of History, State University of Iowa. 1 Died January 27, 1895. Five Words LIKE points of glittering frost the stars are strewn, The rosy fire of sunset fades away, And in the west white clouds with shadows gray Float in the icy pallor of the moon. For me five words are carolling a tune More sweet than other words can say, Five simple words, on many lips each day, Yet magical, for " I shall see her soon! " Without the world is hard and hoar with snow, The world within is rosier than wine; Young April ' s heart is less suffused than mine With glad forebodings of a lovelier glow; Forever in the darkness as I go, Those five sweet words sing me their song divine. THE TABARD. Dying Leaves WITHIN a withered wood a maple tree Still clasps the golden leaves that autumn gave; Dark, graceful branches wave amid the gold, Whose yellow wealth white winter soon shall steal. Ah! ' t is not lifeless gold adorns those boughs! The idle fancy cheats me of the truth; The leaves have life, although unlike mine own, And life is fading from them for all time. I would, fair leaves whose fading is so fair, That you could know your beauty gives me joy; For I would know my own death beautiful To some eternal Watcher of the world. THE TABARD. The Wandering Jew By Harry W. Hanson This Oration was awarded fi rst place in the home Oratorical Contest in 1895, and third in the Annual Contest of the nothern Oratorical held at Iowa May 3rd 1895 MYTHOLOGY is the poetic side of human history. In ballad and in legend it commemorates the good and evil deeds of men, giving to them according as they deserve, a lighter or darker hue. Thus there exists great interdependence between mythology and history, and fully to appreciate any great event requires that the two be studied with a view to mutual explanation. In seeking to employ this principle of historic interpretation, nowhere, perhaps will it be found more forcible of application than in the tragic legend of the Wandering Jew. In the whole realm of fancy, where could be found a superstition more strange, more unique, than that of a man who cannot die, but must live on, and on, throughout the countless centuries of time doomed to a life of wandering. The common explanation of this strange myth is, that a certain Jew once having insulted the Savior, received as punishment. to a life of endless exile. " Tarry until I return, " said Christ, and the catching. the mournful strain, has transcribed it into immortal verse. " From sea to sea, from shore to shore, Outcast from hearth and home, Go, wander on forevermore, Until the Master come. " He resteth not by sea or shore, He knows nor hearth, nor home; Forevermore, forevermore, Until the Master come. " Again and again, men have professed to have seen this strange being in the marts of trade, in the depths of forests, or upon the bare and lofty peak of some high mountain, seeking again the places already a thousand times sought. Sometime, the legend runs, he will be released from this thraldom. When Christ shall come again, the eternal malediction will be removed. Such is the legend of the Wandering Jew. Of itself alone, it is fascinating and pathetic; but in a deeper meaning it illustrates a part of history in which the most tremendous spiritual and moral forces have been brought into play, and in which human passion has been stirred to its lowest depths. Rightly understood and correctly interpreted, it must be regarded as typifying the Hebrew race. Summon the history of this peculiar people, and the analogy will become evident. From the dawn of a national existence to the present, the people of Israel have been familiar with exile. They have wandered everywhere, enduring obloquy, spoliation, outrage, and the most awful sufferings the ingenuity of man could devise. Evidences of this fact are to be found in all lands, and in all ages. Upon the gloomy columns of Ancient Egypt, or the massive obelisks of Assyria, what face among the captives stands out most conspicuously and often? That of the Jew. Under the task-master ' s lash he toiled in the of the Pharaohs and his captive service enriched the beauties of Nineveh, and the Wonders of Babylon. At times, it is true, the grip of the conqueror relaxed, and his strong national sentiment drew back the Jew to his native land. But such respites were brief. Master succeeded master. After Persia came Greece, after Greece Rome, each in turn exacting much from the Jew, until Imperial Rome, intolerant of disobedience, at last annihilated the Holy City and drove Israel forth from its ruined walls forever. That was a dark hour for the Jew. And yet, though he had pictured the future black as Erebus, could he have conceived it dark enough? Could he have realized then that that persecution which had already seared his soul would, in succeeding centuries become an all devouring flame? Could he possibly have known that in future ages, religious precepts springing from his own people would be so employed as to threaten his very annihilation? The noble principles of Judaism and the nobler tenets of Christianity, these are the factors which precipitated the struggle between Jew and Gentile in the Middle Ages. But as time passed on, and this struggle increased in it grew to be more than a conflict of faiths. It became a clash of races and of civilizations, in which the Jew, firm, unyielding, and in the minority, was the greater sufferer. For analogous causes the Jew had suffered in the Pagan world. There he would not become Grecianized, he would not become Romanized; and after Greece and Rome were dead, he was still a Jew. This stubborn spirit of nationality he bore with him into the Middle Ages, but there he met with opposition more fierce and more determined than ever yet he had known. Influenced by the greed of gain and impelled by the jealousies of religion, strong nations narrowed the pale of his freedom, depriving him of his rights until there remained the mean and despised avocation of the money lender alone. Gradually this spirit of intolerance intensified and, during the rose to its highest pitch. Then France and England, Germany and Portugal, without mercy crushed the Jew to the earth; while in Spain the noble race which had added lustre to Europe ' s earliest civilization, was fairly hounded to destruction. Save in the mercantile cities of Italy, and among the followers of Mahomet, the Jew knew no security, and had no rights. To him law was only a hollow mockery and justice was unknown. A type of this period is Shylock. In his life is written the story of his nation for a thousand years. Goaded to madness he enters the Court of Venice to demand reparation for incalculable wrongs. Solitary and alone he stands before the tribunal of justice, brooding but one cruel purpose in his pitiless And what motive could he have for not so doing? Around him, throughout all Europe, rolls and surges the great storm of persecution. The clanking chains of the Inquisition, and the shrieks and cries of his own bleeding, people pierce his very soul. Before him stand the men who have cursed him, scorned his sacred nation, robbed him of his child and wrecked his home. Who can wonder at the suit he follows? Would it have been human nature for him to have done otherwise? But how he is mocked by that law which for years has stood silently by, watched every sentiment of manhood crushed out of his life and not once raised an interposing hand! After the right of his claim is conceded, after the bond is allowed, then by pure chicanery—by the merest verbal intent and purpose of the law is thwarted, confiscation seizes upon the wealth of the defenseless Jew and his soul is outraged with a forced apostasy. When Shylock totters out of the court it is with the embittered consciousness that he is only a Jew, a Jew of the Middle Ages— " that Pariah of Society " who cried for law and begged in vain for justice. Almost up to the beginning of the present century it was thus. Not until those social and political revolutions which introduced the world ' s republics had been inaugurated did the Jew enjoy either respite or relief. To-day indeed, he stands before the world partly emancipated, and but only in part. For Germany still holds him under the ban of narrow and harrowing political restrictions. In Russia mobs of ignorant peasants loot and pillage his thrift; while the government that should protect him luxuriates in the spoils of the plunder and drives him forth a penniless exile. In France, in England, and even in America, he is everywhere subjected to that most of all conditions—social ostracism. These are the darker phases of Jewish history. Observed by the light of the present, their gloomy outlines stand fully revealed. Who can survey them and not feel oppressed by the sense of deep tragedy which they impart. Who can think of this people, passing through the Captivities, the Dispersion, and the persecutions of the Centuries without there rising before his mind the broken and despised form of the Wandering Jew? Had mythology ever such a basis in history ? Had history ever such a prototype in mythology? The analogy thus far is evident; but what of the future? " Until the Master come, " says the poet in legend. As applied to Israel what is the meaning of this language? Is the future to be as the past, a record of grief and wrong? Are the evils of the present—German persecution, Russian the refined and delicate insult of polished society—are these to be the Jew ' s portion in the future? Every sentiment of true humanity revolts at the thought. Surely the race that has given to civilization many of its in literature and art, many of its noblest ideas in science and philosophy and has inspired its best religion, surely this race is entitled to every right and privilege which free and civilized men enjoy. Indeed if genius be made the measure of man ' s right to freedom, no people need look to the future with greater assurance than Israe l. Mark the noblest scions of the race—Heine, Spinoza, Mendelssohn, and high above them all, faultless in ideal, divine in attribute, Him upon whom the world-embracing church of Christianity was founded as upon a rock. Would any people think to compare with this galaxy of genius? Can the world to-day behold it and still deny to Israel immunity from all persecution and universal equality before the law? To deny these rights is to charge it upon the Jew that he is the chief cause of those evils which have been heaped upon him. Those who maintain such a charge not only exculpate the Gentile world from irreparable crimes and wrongs but indict the whole Hebrew race. That indictment is false. Upon the Gentile no less than upon the Jew rests the responsibility. The causes of all those injustices which have been endured are to be traced primarily and at last to fierce spirits of race prejudice aroused whenever Jew and Gentile have met. Whether the Gentile be Pagan or Christian, whether the Jew be or Talmudic, it matters not. For wherever persecution has been resorted to, there down beneath all extraneous and outward appearances is to be seen the death-grapple of two distinct races. Thus far these two antagonistic elements have firmly refused to unite. Proud and imperious they remain apart, their repulsion neither abated by nor lessened by disaster. Undoubtedly, in some far distant age, they will amalgamate and all distinctions and differences will disappear. But to living men the hope of the future hangs not upon such contingency. Neither does it rest upon the bare chance that either of these opposing forces of humanity will ultimately crush the other. That hope, if it is to be realized, must look to a future such as the auspicious present proclaims—to an age of conciliation and of compromise. Toward such an era the world is slowly advancing. Nothing can stop it, neither blinded prejudice, smothered passion, nor concealed hate. Mark the evidences of this progress: The overthrow of Monarchy, the establishment of Democracy, the repudiation of the supremacy of Society. and the recognition of the Divine Rights of the individual. In such an era, the Jew will be, must be, thoroughly emancipated. For we know ...through the ages, One increasing purpose runs, And the thoughts of men are widened With the process of the suns. Sometime when the Jew shall forget his exclusiveness, and the Gentile his narrowness, then all differences will be reconciled in a union upon principles, no less broad, no less embracing, no less immutable, than the " Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man. " Then the everlasting Jew will cease from his wanderings, for his Master will have come. OF seasons, hurrying onward ne ' er the A golden link is autumn in the chain.

Alberta, this request I hope you ' ll grant; And soon an answer to my note I crave. Believe me, most sincerely, WILLIE CANT. October 1st, 1895. Willie Cant! October 1st! A poet! " When fortunately your consent I won, the pleasure of your company to have on that most happy Well, this is pretty early, but then " ' t is the early bird that catches the worm. " I don ' t believe there ' s another girl in the Freshman class invited yet, but— (thoughtfully) Willie Cant— Willie Ca nt—I actually believe I don ' t know who he is. I remember his name, but—Oh! yes! I met him at that Close Hall reception, but I ' m sure I don ' t know whether it ' s that boy who wears his hair parted not quite in the middle, or the one whom everyone is saying will make a fine foot ball player—it ' s one of those two anyway. I ' ll ask the girls to point him out at Chapel to-morrow. Scene II (Freshman girls grouped about ALBERTA in the waiting room, South Building.) 1ST GIRL. Say, girls, who of you went to the Freshman meeting last night? I could not go. When is it to be? ALL. Sh! Sh! 2ND GIRL. Oh, we are all right, none but Freshmen here. They had to postpone it again. Is n ' t it horrid? 1ST GIRL. Like enough it will be as it was last year and we won ' t have any. ALBER TA. Oh, yes we shall, for I ' ve received several invitations. ALL (in surprise). You have! From whom? Please tell? ALBERTA. Oh! You can ' t imagine how funny my first one was. From Willie Cant. You know he belongs to that versification class, so of course he had to show his knowledge of poetry 1ST GIRL. Alberta! It was n ' t in poetry! I know that boy and it would be just like him. How perfectly killing it must have been! ALBERTA (blushing). Well, it was poetry and really, girls, it was not very bad. 2ND GIRL. Well, I never! Catch me going with him. ALBERTA. Sour grapes. For all I know I may not go with him, -because—now, girls, if you ever tell this, I ' ll never forgive you, GIRLS. Tell what? ALBERTA. I ' ll tell you something if you will promise on your word of honor not to tell. Promise? ALL. Upon our word of honor! ALBERTA. Well, you know about my first invitation from Willie Cant, I got two or three weeks ago, the first of the term? Well, you know that the—Oh! I am afraid you will tell. ALL. No, really, we won ' t, do hurry! ALBERTA. Well, they told me how the " Sophs " always carry the Freshman boys off and do such dreadful things at the banquet time, and Willie Cant rooms with a " Soph, " and I just know he ' ll be carried off, so accepted three other boys, because—girls, stop laughing—I want to go and I want to make sure of getting there. Was that very bad? The other boys were--no, I wont tell. ALL. Please, Alberta, you might as well. ALBERTA. Well! Carl Huber was one, and Oliver Jones, and Young. 1st GIRL (giggling).

I know she must think very well of me, Because I am the only ladies ' man In this year ' s Freshman what ' s the time? (looks at his watch.) Ten minutes after eight. Can it be true That just ten minutes have elapsed Since I began to wait and watch for you? By George! I wish I could have got a cab! I do not see why papa did not send A larger check. He surely got my note. In which I asked for him to send at least Five dollars more. But then he did n ' t; so that, Alberta, we shall have to walk, I guess, But then, " What can ' t be helped must be endured. " It surely now is time (looks at his watch). It ' s half past eight. At last the time has come for us to go (passes quickly up the steps and knocks). (ALBERTA opens the door.) ALBERTA. Oh, Mr. Cant, how prompt you are. WILLIE C. Yes, Miss Day, I pride myself on my promptness. It is one of my best characteristics of which I have ALBERTA. Pardon me. But did you see any " Sophs " on the way, Mr. Cant? Do you know, Lillie May just ran in a few minutes ago and said they were after us, and that she was just sure that one had been walking up and down our walk for the last half hour. Oh, Mr. Cant, really did you see any? WILLIE C. No, that is, Miss Day-er-er-I don ' t believe she saw er-er-him, at all. But, Alberta, do not fear the " Sophs. " Trust me to you. I assure you (draws himself up to his full height of five feet) that I will stick with you, Alberta, come what may. ALBERTA. That is so good of you. Excuse me, and I will get ready. [Retires.] WILLIE C. So those beastly " Sophs " are after me. I wonder what they will do. Oh my, if they catch me they will spoil my new clothes and probably do something terrible. But you bet I ' ll run (re-enter Miss DAY, attired for walking). Ah? Ready so soon! I was thinking how I should fight if any of those fellows try to get me (rises and opens the door, both pass out and spring the night lock). I tell you, Miss Day, that when such a case occurs, it brings out all the manhood of a man.

From Our Alumni The University the War Ellen M .Rich CONCERNING things love for one ' s Alma Mater should be second only to love of home and country. conduces more to the growth and permanency of our institutions than the loyalty of our people. Simple and crude as the history of the University ' s childhood may appear, the fact that the Juniors deem it worthy of record attests their fealty to their college and their gratitude to those pioneers whose self-sacrificing devotion maintained the nucleus of a University while their greater energies were bestowed upon the preservation of the national Union. The rapid progress of human events since the Civil War diminishes the relative value of former attainments, and almost induces a want of respect and veneration for immediate ancestral belongings. Those who are inclined to think that during the war the University was only an inferior high school will perhaps, without reflection, refute the idea that the of a third of a century ago was a greater factor in the State of Iowa, as Iowa then existed, than is the University of to-day in the Iowa of to-day. This condition is not dependent upon the managers of the Institution, who have ever been faithful and true men, but it arises from the fact that the State has not devoted to its chief educational center the care and the means necessary for it to keep pace with the material progress all about it. Let one illustration suffice. The present library building was erected in 1865, as a chapel, and was then the finest audience room west of the Mississippi river. Those were hard times. Nearly all of Iowa ' s able bodied men enlisted for the war. Those remaining after the carnage were poor and maimed, all the resources of the State were needed to defray war expenses, yet, with women laboring in the fields, with girls doing the work of boys upon the farm, with less than half of our broad prairies under cultivation, or in any way peopled by settlers, with half the dwellings of the State cheap, unpainted shanties, with all this evidence of hard times, Iowa erected for the University what was then a beautiful audience hall. The present University buildings do not so compare with the present edifices of Iowa. The magnificent Capitol, the excellent high school buildings, the churches and court houses witness the neglect which characterizes our cherished abode. In 1865, the University was as great as it could well it is not as great as it might be. When the war closed the State made provision whereby all widows, wives, or orphans, were granted free tuition in the University. In the winter of 1865-6, the writer hereof numbered in her classes in seven one-armed men. In the spring of 1864, the University contributed a company of infantry for the hundred-days service. One of the instructors, Prof. Borland, was captain of the company, and the girls presented him with a beautiful silk flag—the remnants of which are in the library to-day. The sword presented to him by the Faculty is now in the historical rooms. Sad and dreary as were those days of warfare, there remained many sources of pleasure not so fondly cherished at present. There was the early moonlight stroll in order to reach chapel, attendance upon the exercises being obligatory. At fifteen minutes before eight in the morning, the janitor locked the outer door, and late corners as well as absentees must render a written excuse for non-attendance. The chapel seats were arranged in sections and all numbered upon the back. Each student had a seat assigned him for the term. At a given signal the monitors of the sections arose and made a record of such numbers as were uncovered. It resulted that a student must not only be in his place, but must assume the proper position in order to cover the number. To shield absent members there was an student capable of covering two numbers. So great was our glee over this early rising, and so evident the pleasure of the business men when the students broke the paths through the snow for them, that the Faculty are loth even yet to dispense with the eight o ' clock recitations . There is no spot in the University about which the memory of the older students so fondly lingers as about the old chapel, now the law lecture room. The beautiful devotional exercises were the comfort and the inspiration of the day. missed them felt that he had missed a blessing. Here assembled daily all the professors and students. Here were read all the announcements for the day, bulletin boards being thought unnecessary. Here came all men and women of distinction who were temporarily sojourning in our midst. Every morning for an entire week, the kind faces of Louis Agassiz and his wife looked down upon us. Each afternoon of that week we listened to Agassiz ' s lectures on " The Coral Reefs of Iowa. " From among the many distinguished visitors of those days, memory brings back the names and faces of Henry Vincent, the historian, Dr. Eddy, Henry Ward Beecher, Bayard Taylor, Horace Greely, Frederick Douglass, John B. Gough, Anna Dickinson and Mrs. Livermore. The manifest interest of these people in the progress of the young was a valuable aid and encouragement. Having no Fraternities, we held monthly social gatherings in the chapel from seven to ten o ' clock in the evening, except in November, when we had a Thanksgiving supper there. It was what the Juniors would probably call a grand spread. The affair was managed by committees and so charmingly managed that every student no matter how poor, felt cordially invited. In those days, when throughout the entire Northwest there was no market for live stock, when a dollar per hundred for dressed pork was the highest price paid, when there were required five dozen eggs in exchange for one spool of cotton thread, there were few students who ventured to spend money upon a trip home, and the supper was the great feast of the year. Again, means of transportation were quite at variance with those at present. There was no B., C. R. and The Rock Island Railroad extended west only so far as Newton, while the terminus of the Northwestern was east of Marshalltown. Iowa City ' s nearest telegraph office was at Muscatine. When the rumor of the of Abraham Lincoln came to Iowa City, two couriers were sent to Muscatine to ascertain the truth of the report. They returned just in time to have the sad announcement made from the church pulpits before the As each student was required to attend church at least once every this was the manner in which they learned of our greatest national bereavement. Every eye swam in tears on that sad morning and we lived our history of the Civil war, needing neither text-book nor examination. Although most departments in the University have always been accessible to women as well as men, there is one exception. The girls in chemistry were not allowed to do laboratory work. Appeal to the faculty, then to the Board of Regents proving futile, the girls made a unanimous plea to the and won, of course, but greatly to the sorrow of those first girls who entered the laboratory. Many amusing incidents might be related were they not so personal. There are seldom any specific pleasures derived from the faculty. It is now that those pioneer girls reap the benefits of their courage when they see the beautiful and minute results of the laboratory work of this generation. The homes of the literary societies have undergone many desirable transformations. The ladies ' societies formerly met on Friday afternoons, for no evening gathering of young ladies was considered either safe or proper, and there were few young men in the University to escort them. The army absorbed all the masculine valor the State possessed. During the spring term of 1864, there were less than a dozen young men left in the University; these were physically disqualified for military service or for farm work. During the war, the library occupied the west half of the space now by the law library. It was open to students for two hours each week, from two to four o ' clock Friday afternoon. One of the professors would wait upon us, recording the books taken. There were no periodicals for our inspection, and if one will consider the cost of clothing and books in those days together with the scarcity of money, he can appreciate the students ' eagerness for news when he learns that some of the girls, out of their meagre allowance, managed all through the war to subscribe for a Chicago daily paper, for which we never paid less than five cents per copy. One copy, however, would often do most valiant duty. When the war closed it was indeed glorious to welcome the soldier boys to the class-rooms and so high ran the sentiment of loyalty that even their old, blue, soldier-clothes seemed closely allied to the raiment of the gods. These soldier boys when they graduated, left as a memento, the boulder on the south of the main walk, engraved, " Class 1870. " It was a merry party which placed it there and around it were held the first Class Day Exercises of the State University. The first Catalogue IN connection with Mrs. Rich ' s entertaining account of the University during the War, it may not be amiss to take a step further back in University history to the first catalogue ever issued by the It was for the year 1856-57, and appeared in 1857. Upon the following page is a reprint of one of its pages in fac simile. The modest equipment then possessed, and some of the student regulations then in force may not be without interest to those of us who are only familiar with the University as we see it to-day. STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. 45 LIBRARY AND APPARATUS. The agggregate value of the books and apparatus at present is about $2,600. The number of volumes is about 500, so carefully and judiciously selected as to be equivalent to 1,500 or  1,800 selected as books usually are. It is the settled policy of the Board to make liberal appropriations annually for the increase of the Library. The Departments of Natural Philosophy and Mathematics have already received each a liberal supply of first-class instruments, to which additions from time to time will be made as occasion may demand. The Preparatory and Normal Departments also have been efficiently supplied. An appropriation of several dollars will be applied during the ensuing year for putting the Chemical Department in working order. RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. The business of each day during term is opened with chapel exercises, which consist simply in reading the Holy Scriptures and prayer. These exercises are attended by all the students. On the Sabbath they are expected to attend public worship at some convenient place designated by their parents or guardians. Great care is taken to shield them from the inroads of temptation and vice, add to train them in the principles and habits of virtue and morality. LOCATION. The University is located at Iowa City, which now numbers some ten thousand inhabitants. It is beautifully situated on the Iowa river; readily accessible by railroad from the East; by forests and rolling prairies; possessing at all times a fine bracing, atmosphere, and a climate which has ever proved mild and healthy. CALENDAR. The University year is divided into two terms. The first on the THIRD WEDNESDAY OF SEPTEMBER, and for twenty weeks, closing on Friday of the twentieth week. Then occurs a vac ation of one week. On the WEDNESDAY OF THE WEEK FOLLOWING commences the second term, which, for twenty weeks, will close the University year. The annual examination will begin on the Tuesday next preceding the close of the University year, and continue one week. The Exercises will be held on Wednesday following the close of the year.

As an Alumnus Responds (Extract from an answer to a Request for Reminiscences) YOU need not look for those reminiscences as I have n ' t any. I live in the future; I am a star gazer not a burrower in the musty past, amidst the dry bones of sepulchres, and the weepings of the ages. No, get some antique maid, who lives in the tombs, who joys in dead, who yells in delight at the thought of the time when men parted their hair on the side, studied in earnest, did n ' t have any college yells, Greek Letter Fraternities, or that barbarism of the ball. Poem of class ' 95 Delivered class-Day,June 9, 1895 A TRAVELLER wending his way through the lane in the springtime, Halts when he reaches the turn that leads to the great, dusty highway; Gazes in retrospect brief o ' er the path resting calm in the Then turns his scrutiny keen on the unknown vista before him; So do we, class-mates, look back as we pause ' twixt the lane and the highway, Viewing the pleasure-strewn path we ' ve trod with hurrying foot steps, Noting the points here and there, each fondly remembered old landmark, E ' er we bend on the new thoroughfare our gaze, half reluctant, half eager. When the sunlight falls through the trees and the wind softly rustles the branches, The shadows dance o ' er the green-sward in fairy-like interlaced net-work. So does this path, as we look, seem like one broad shaft of sunlight O ' er which our shadowy griefs dance lightly and temper its brilliance. First in the distance we see, looking back to the point whence we started, A concourse of maidens and youth, disporting themselves on the campus, Thronging the steps and the halls, and beaming with innocence verdant, While ever attentive and near the upper classmen surround them; Guarding their victims with care, for this is the great rushing season. We next catch a brief, fleeting glimpse of Close Hall, brilliantly lighted, Crammed full of sociable folk, each one adorned with a label, Rapturous greetings take place and divers addresses of welcome. A banquet hall now comes to view where Freshmen are gaily assembled, Feasting with much jollity and telling their wondrous adventures. A scene in Society halls now claims our attention a moment; For Freshman and Sophomore have met and sent ancient feuds up in Anon comes a similar view when ' Ninety-five poses as Sophomore; Plays the hospitable and wishes " Good-luck " to the Freshman. We see, somewhat nearer at hand, a conclave bent strictly on business, In manifold meetings is wrought the plan of ' Ninety-five ' s HAWKEYE. The part that lies nearest comes last, and we see as in light of the noonday, Senior meetings full many and oft, festive times that fail of description. Between these we catch many a glimpse, brilliant-tinted, each other succeeding : The ball park, with great surging crowds, cheering in frenzied excitement The touch-down just made by our boys while old gold rampant is flying; The Armory, glowing with light and fragrant with perfume of roses, Joyous with flutter of fans, and radiant with flashing of slippers and music keep time in throbbing, pulsating movement; The Library hushed into quiet, save when the sharp rap of the pencil Awes into silence some joke betrayed by an ill-suppressed giggle, The tables and book-lined aisles where roams the ubiquitous Senior Searching for facts by the score, absorbing knowledge by volumes; The river with beautiful sheen breaking in long sweeps of ripples, Following the wake of the oars and hiding deep under the willows. Oh Memory! Gift straight from Heaven, these treasures we give to thy keeping. In thy halls and corridors wide, receive and preserve them forever, So that in long y ears to come, we may visit thy spacious apartments, Feast on their beauties our eyes as we wander from one to another, Till thy dreamy splendors enchant and banish the pain of the present. When to the future we turn, and draw aside the thin curtain Which hangs ' tween Memory ' s realms, and her neighbor, Imagination, We enter a shadowy scene, wid ' ning out into vista on vista, Where outlines are wavering, dim, and the features and forms are uncertain, We find, as we enter this hall, a collection of many hued glasses, Some with a roseate glow, some dark as a cloud charged with lightnings, And on the selection of these lies the color we view in our future. There is no place in the world where contact brings such quick friendship, Where new ties so swiftly are formed, as the halls of one ' s dear Alma Mater. Yet e ' en here, how light after all, do human lives touch one another? How rarely does feeling probe deep, how constant the play on the surface! Because we pass hurriedly on, but a moment is given to linger, And what might have been friendship true lies dormant, force strong but potential, And by truth was the poet inspired when he viewed human life in this aspect: " Ships that pass in the night and speak each other in passing, Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness, So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.

I. is by no means one of unalloyed success. But defeat is an excellent tonic—when taken in doses—and nothing is better for general athletics, in any college, than occasional defeat: hence their robust condition at S. U. I. However our triumphs and reverses have been admirably divided; and, though victory has now and again refused to perch above our banner, in spite of earnest she has generally had ample reason for going over to the opposing side. It is not the purpose of the present article to give a comprehensive of athletics at our University, but simply to call attention to certain facts connected with their later history. In base ball we head the list as having won the championship of Iowa the greatest number of times. It is a fact that in the early ' 90 ' s we seemed to lose our hold upon base ball honors, but the season of ' 95 brought back to its Proper abode the " Silver Bat " of the Iowa Inter-Collegiate Base Ball Additional credit is due our team of ' 95, when we recall the peculiar disadvantages under which they were forced to labor. Never in the history of S. U. I. has so gloomy a prospect ripened into more brilliant success! The team of the preceding season had come to a woeful end, and all things seemed joined in conspiracy against the welfare of our base ball team. The of April 13th says: " The base ball team has had many troubles this season. Mr. Larrabee resigned the captaincy in February and Mr. Brownlie of I. A. C. fame was elected captain. Mr. Brownlie, finding it necessary to be out of school during the spring term, resigned and Mr. F. was elected captain. The new captain needs no introduction to I. students. He was one of the best players on last year ' s team and will play as brilliantly this year as he did last. " From the day of his election, Hopkins worked faithfully and energetically to bring out a winning team. Of his success it is sufficient to say that we won every game of the State League and our eastern trip was not without its honors. Our most crushing defeats were received at the hands of Chicago, Michigan and Illinois Universities. After electing Arey captain for ' 96, the team disbanded, feeling that the shades of former base ball heroes had at last been propitiated and that the future, bright with hope, beckoned their successors on to new victories and glory. The history of foot ball at S. U. I. during the past season has been in many respects unfortunate, but there is much of which we may be proud. Great encouragement is to be found in the work of the team of ' 95 when we recall certain facts closely connected with its history. In the first place the players were nearly all new men and their improvement was very rapid as is shown by their work in the later games of the season. Again it was not decided to place a team in the field until the second week of school, and then they were handicapped by the lack of coach, trainer, funds and manager. But no difficulties are great enough to dampen the ardor of thoroughly aroused I. students. The debt of about three hundred dollars was soon paid by liberal subscription on the part of students and business men. Mr. G. was elected manager, the services of Mr. Cavanaugh as trainer were secured and active practice began at once. Captain Leighton labored and impartially with old and new men alike and proved himself to be one of the most energetic and persevering workers recorded in the athletic history of our University. The old men in school, who were in position to play upon the team, were: Kepler, Leighton and Iverson. The new men worked hard and developed rapidly. Some of them had played foot ball in other schools, but many were inexperienced and so were forced to begin " at the bottom and work up. " Improvement was not so marked, however, in team play as in individual work, and in this respect was the great weakness of our team. Larrabee ably filled the position of coach, for the " Varsity, " while " braced " the " scrubs " in fine style. In fact the reserve team were very fortunate in their season ' s work, winning two games from Wilton College, tying the first and winning the second game, by a wide margin, from Lenox College. In the responsible, and at this time especially trying position, of manager, Mr. Lawrence has conducted himself from first to last in a most satisfactory and praiseworthy manner. Accepting the position when fully aware of its disadvantages and difficulties, he has shown himself deserving of the earnest thanks of Faculty and students. At the close of the season, Iverson was elected captain for ' 96 and our team disbanded; somewhat sore for their defeats, it is true, but feeling that an ocean of comfort was to be found in the remarkable development of the new men, in the hearty financial support of students and business men and above all in the new-born vigorous interest in foot ball manifested in the University at large. The present augurs well for the future. Already an Inter-Class League, which bids fair to remain a permanent feature in our athletic work, has been organized by the classes of the Collegiate Department and a full series Barth. Turner. Frailey. Smith. Mullein. Hamann. Gray. Calley Moore. Taylor. Ende Saylor. Howell. ' 98 track team of games played, the Sophomores winning the championship. The Medical and Pharmaceutical Departments also put teams in the field. So standing just beyond the portals of ' 95, we look forward anxiously and eagerly to the season of when we hope that Fortune may smile upon us her blessing and the defeats of the past be hidden by the victories of the present. We have spoken at some length concerning the two departments of which are most often brought to public notice. There remains, one branch of athletics which is certainly second to none in importance and is, in many respects, a better standard by which to judge the athletic life of a college; we refer to Track Athletics. Their importance, in a great measure, lies in the opportunity which they afford for individual development and excellence. Certainly no more and probably not nearly so much and pleasure is to be found in the training of the track team as in the preliminary practice of the foot ball and base ball teams. But the freedom and independence granted the individual athlete make Track Athletics very mporta nt. In this line, also, it has been that our University has taken highest rank. Since the formation of the Iowa Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association we have three times won the championship cup and three times lost it. At present it graces the archives of our sister institution, Iowa College. S. U. I. claims the proud distinction of having produced the greatest athlete of the west, John However others may regard his successes, to us they signify the merited reward of long, earnest, patient training. But of this we shall speak later. The history of the Track Team of ' 95 is, perhaps, unfortunate, but we would remind you, gentle reader, of the sentiment expressed at the beginning of this article. " there is nothing better for athletics in any college, than defeat. " Our defeats we make no attempt to excuse. The Dual League contest with Iowa College was fairly lost and fairly won. Crum ' s absence in the east made the victory of Iowa College at the State Meet more decided. There is no trial, but has its solace! By the splendid victories of Crum in the 100 and 220 yard dashes at Berkley Oval and later in Chicago, the remembrance of defeat was banished. Our hopes rise! We realize that improvements must be made. Something must be done to get men to train earlier in their college course! We must have suitable training grounds; for the long walk to the fair grounds was enough to dampen the ardor of any ordinary athlete. Above all we ascertain our weak points with a clearness, that is, to say the least, painful. The Fall of ' 95 brings us our largest Freshman Class on record; and a class well-filled with promising material. The realization of our weak points and their necessary remedies brought about the construction of a one-third mile track in our athletic park. This is the sign of our greatest advancement and by it we are immediately strengthened. Although the cinders have not yet been put upon the track they will doubtless be placed there in the early spring. The track was still soft when Fall Field Day was held but the various classes and departments were well represented and a very successful meet was held. For the first time since our " venerable " Seniors were Freshmen, the class won the championship cup. The total number of points won by each class is as follows: Freshmen 52, Sophomores 29, Juniors 9, Seniors 12, Senior Law 14, Junior Medical 8, Junior Dental 3; total 127. It is difficult to attempt to predict the future, but the prospects are not gloomy; we miss many of our old champions, but earnest hard work will do much toward filling the gap left by them, T hat our new classes good material has been demonstrated and persevering effort is all that is lacking to bring out a winning team in ' 96. Not a year passes but some new and important feature is introduced into our general athletics. During the present year we have organized an Foot Ball League and played a full series of games, the Sophomores winning the championship. Last spring a similar Class Base Ball League was organized, and the championship of this League also was won by the class of ' 98. In 1894 Mr. W. T. Chantland, one of our former athletes, offered a beautiful medal to be contested for in a series of cross-country runs. Owing to bad weather the series was never completed; this season, however, will see the presentation of the medal for the series has already been begun and will doubtless be completed. Many thanks are due Mr. Chantland for the interest which he still shows in our athletics. In the fall of 1893 the then Sophomore Class, the class of ' 96, challenged the class of ' 97 to meet them in an athletic contest composed of such events as the committees from the two classes should agree upon. This challenge was accepted and the Sophomore–Freshman Field Day was inaugurated April 28, 1894. It had originally been intended to hold the Field Day during the fall term, but for various reasons it was postponed until spring. The program consisted of the fifteen events then enumerated in the Iowa Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association program, with the exception that a one-half mile was for the two mile bicycle race and a twelve pound hammer was for the sixteen pound hammer in the hammer throw. No limit was placed upon the number of entries to be made by each class and the result was a very large number of entries and but few contestants. The final score of points was a surprise even to many loyal members of ' 97. The class of ' 96 won fifty-eight points and the class of ' 97 won sixty-two! For the ' t was a day of bliss unalloyed! April 20, occurred the second Annual Sophomore–Freshman Field Day. This time the regular seventeen events of the State Field Day were carried out. Three entries in each event were allowed the respective classes. The contest between ' 96 and ' 97 had been very close, and additional interest now centered upon the struggle between ' 97 and ' 98. The narrow Barth. Cartwright. Hollingsworth. Taylor. Carter. Ende . Howell F. Capell. Eby. Wessels. Prall. C. Capell. Saylor. Weed. ' 98 foot Ball Team, margin of the previous year was destined to be cut in twain. Ninety-seven winning 67 points, while ' 98 captured 69 points and the Field Day. A second time Freshman rapture knew no bound! This event is becoming one of the most interesting and profitable features of our home athletic contests. Next spring will see a fiercely contested meet as a very strong Freshman Class will mee t a very strong Sophomore Class. We are unable to predict the outcome, but all things indicate a very close contest. It is in these new features that we see signs of promise for the future of our athletics. May our prophecy not prove false and may we move steadily forward to better and greater ends than we have as yet dared to hope. john Crum ' s EVENT. Yard Dash.

Crum N the fall of 1890, there appeared in the ranks of the man Class a modest, unassuming youth who was destined, ere his college days were ended, to make such a stir in letic circles as had not been known before. To use the language of an upper-classman of that time, " when Crum was a Freshman no one ever thought he could run. " This reputation for modesty and reticence was maintained throughout his college course and all his subsequent fame never in the least disturbed the serenity of his ' ' cranium. " John V. Crum ran his first race at S. U. I. in when he took part in a class relay race, and—was beaten! In 1892 he won his first race, a 220 yard dash, as McCluskey, our champion at that time, was sick. The Fall Field Day of 1893, witnessed the first real victories of our future champion. Upon that memorable October day, 1893, began a series of thirty-seven victories in the and 220 yard dashes, which was not broken until his defeat by Wefers, September, 1895. Some of the races in this series were: the Western Inter-Collegiate Meet at Chicago for and also 1895, American Inter-Collegiate Meet in 1895, Chicago Athletic Association Games, 1895, Labor Day Games, New York, 1895, and various others. In the Labor Day Games Crum defeated the champion, B. J. Wefers, and sprained his leg so that he was forced to stop training and go to bed. The week before the National Championship races Crum could not stand on his leg because of the intense pain! Crippled, out of form and discouraged the wonder is, not that he was beaten, but that he could run at all! But run he did and was defeated only by Wefers. B. J. Wefers and John V. Crum were the representatives of the New York Athletic Club in the contest with the London Club. This contest is famous for the remarkable records made, and for the exclusion of the English- men from every first place on the program. Wefers won first in the loo yard dash and Crum third; in the 220 yard dash Wefers won first and Crum second. These races took place within two or three weeks from the time of Crum ' s injury, and while he was still suffering from it. Proud as we are of the victories which our champion has won upon the different athletic clubs to which he belonged, the most interesting part of his career, to college students, is not to be found in such victories, but rather in those which he won as a college athlete. Our first realization of Crum ' s ability came in the spring of 1894, when, under the careful hands of Ed. W. Moulton, he easily won the dashes at the State Meet and later won both the too and 220 yard races in Chicago. In the spring of 1895 we sent Crum and his careful guardian, Ed. W. Moulton, to the Mott Haven Games in the East. With what eagerness we did read the first telegram telling of victory in the preliminary races! But the next day when the telegram told a story that turned the town topsy turvy—a story of victory in both the finals! the mayor of Iowa City kindly placed the town at the disposal of the students, and how we did celebrate! Front Harper ' s Weekly, Copyright, 1008, oy Harper e. Fro.. Harper ' s Weekly. Copyright, 1895, by Harper es Brothers. This, gentle reader, this was the moment when the career of John V. Crum, possessed the greatest interest for college students. Greater victories and glory he has since won, greater to the world at large, but never greater to us! Yale ' s trainer protested Crum on the ground of professionalism, and also alleged that his name was not Crum. The protest, however, came to nothing. In closing it is but fitting to notice some of Crum ' s remarkable In the spring of 1895, he ran twenty-one races in nineteen days, in New York, Chicago and Iowa, and won them all. Labor Day, September 2, 1895, he defeated B. J. Wefers, C. W. Stage, the World ' s Fair Champion; Sanford, of Yale; Bloss, of Harvard; Brokaw, of Princeton; Lee, the 1894 Champion; and Goodwin, of Kentucky. During his college course, besides completing six years curriculum work in five years, he found time and tunity to win thirty-five medals; all are for first places except five, four of these are for second place, and one for third place. Twenty-five have been won in college athletics and ten in athletic clubs. With the New York Games the career of John V. Crum closed. The last race which he ran was a 120 yard dash in New York. In this event he beat all the fast sprinters, except Wefers, who staid out, in 12 seconds. He now returned to Iowa, visiting his Alma Mater and scores of student friends on the way to his home in Bedford where he immediately began the ' practice of law. The character and ,personal career of John V. Crum are too fresh in the minds of S. U. I. students to need extended comment here. While in school he was known as a student, a gentleman and an athlete, irreproachable socially and morally, modest and unassuming. He was ever prone to credit his trainer, Ed. W. Moulton, more with his success than himself. Though crowned with honors, he never changed in personal bearing one iota. His thorough good sense and modesty have won for him a place in the hearts and affections of his student fellows which neither honor nor money could have purchased, and which time will not efface It is with profound regret that we miss him from our midst, not only as an athlete, but as a student and ciate as well. And from the student body of the State University of Iowa there goes out the wish of success, prosperity, and welfare to John V. Crum. With us his will live on throughout the years to come. S is generally known, the new building about to be occupied by the department of Political and Historical Sciences, was erected with a part of the large appropriation made by the Twenty-sixth General Assembly of Iowa. Upon the completion of the building, the Faculty, together with a number of the representative dents met on the first floor to celebrate the event by a grand soiree including a banquet, followed by toasts and later in the evening by a truly artistic entertainment. The banquet proper was one which, for variety and richness, was never surpassed in the annals of the University. Lack of space prevents us from publishing an account of the menu which was served by caterers from as we wish to confine ourselves to an epitome of the toasts and the pro- gram of the entertainment. After all the mind is greater than the body, and mental food is more lasting than fruit, crackers and cider. After every one had satisfied their gormandizing powers, President Schaeffer, as Toast-master of the evening, arose and said : " Ladies and : In my capacity as Toast-master, I suppose I am called upon to make a speech [long pause. But to be candid, I failed to commit to memory piece and therefore I must be excused. [Great applause. Prqf. Wilcox from the corner, " Brevity is the soul of wit. " I We will now hear from Dean Currier, upon the subject, The Twenty-sixth General Assembly ' " The Dean responded in the following words : " Just be seated, Mr. ladies and gentlemen, and I will talk to you in just a minute. Now, what was it you wanted? You see we are very busy at this time of the year. Yes, the President, after a quarter-century of lobbying has at last been noticed and we have an appropriation. It is a modern case of the unjust judge and the poor widow. But excuse me, I am very busy just now working out a list of the Seniors who are likely to graduate, and it is a very delicate question. See! If you will call at the office I will excuse your I mean I will explain further. Well, well, we are very busy now. Call again. " The Toast-master, after a few appropriate remarks, called upon Prof. Calvin to tell something of S. U. I ' s. possible future. Prof. Calvin reviewed at some length the history of the University, how greatly we are indebted to the three great ice-sheets that once Iowa. The glaciers deposited the clay from which the brick were made for so many of our buildings while, it seems, the central building itself was brought down as englacial drift from a region in the north where at one time dwelt a people whose ideas of architecture were very unique indeed. The effect of weathering shows that the date of erection must have been about the year 6700 B. C. He finished his remarks with the words: predict a great future for the University ; a time when all the buildings will be comfortably heated: when the cellar of the Central Building shall be cleaned out and when Van Law shall be the President of the University. I propose this toast, then, to our future greatness. " After the tinkling of glasses had ceased, the Toast-master called on Prof. Loos for a few remarks. He said: " Vell, den, laydes and shendlemans, I vil spheak aboud von eembordandt subjecd fich I vill gall teorie off walue ' dat I tink I vill firsht konseeder from von subshectif standpoindt already yet. Yahich been sera much est in dot subschectd " —but the reporter could unde rstand no more. The remarks lasted two hours and he was loudly applauded by Profs. Wilson, Sturm and others. Mr. Wm. Larrabee next favored the company with a few remarks upon the benefits of college athletics. He was a little unsteady from the effect of so many toasts, but rising and holding on to a chair he said: " Ladies and I have only one thing to say. I always illustrate my talks with examples and here I stand a perfect example of college athletics. I have been told by those who know, that mine is the most perfect form the world has ever seen, though my face is n ' t much for beauty. I pause for a reply. " [One of the girls from the Soth. end of the hall, " Oh ! your face is pretty too. " 1 After a well-satisfied glance about the room he sat down amid tremendous applause and the room filled with waving handkerchiefs. After the applauding ceased, the Toast-master called on Prof. Macbride to respond to the toast, " The Hidden Cycad. " " Well! well! well! Mr. Toast-master, ladies and gentlemen. I did n ' t suppose you knew anything about that cycad, as I am sure no one saw me hide it except Prof. Calvin and he said he would keep still if I would give him half. But you can ' t scare me. I ' ve got a monopoly on cycads; I own all the cycads in the world excepting that one and if you want to find that you just go out to the Black Hills and right side of that big white oak tree you will see a ditch, filled with leaves and sticks. That ' s the place. For further particulars, read Notes by the Way. ' " Mr. Sturm next responded to the toast, " The Ladies. " He discussed the subject at some length in English and in German. Finally he became quite excited and said, " Well, I can ' t stop any longer now, I must go over to the library. " The Toast-master now called on Mr. Nutting for a few remarks about the " Bahama Expedition. " . • He gave a glowing account of the floating laboratory and its voyage across the gulf-stream. The story was made extremely interesting by a of thrilling fish stories, too numerous to mention. One story was interesting from the ethical point of view as it showed how the human mind can become so depraved as to try to make fellow beings believe a story which on its very face was false. Conscientious scruples prevent us from it. Still the company took it good-naturedly, showing at the same time that they were not deceived. After the excitement was over, the Toast-master asked if anyone would volunteer to tell a bigger story than Nutting. All was silent, finally, in the extreme northeast corner Lieut. Vogdes was seen beating the air with his fist. Ile said: " Toast-master-general, I won ' t attempt to outdo Nutting, but I just want to tell you about some of the strange things I have seen in my life. I was out on the frontier, leading a charge against too,000 Oklahoma I had fifty men. I threw them into a line of skirmishers and advanced. But my men seeing the great number of Oklahoma warriors were scared and fled. I continued to advance wi th sword in hand, and strange as it may seem, I killed everyone of them. " At this point the speaker was interrupted by flying tables, chairs, etc., and was compelled to end his story. Tired of this talk and mutiny, the Toast-master now called upon Regent Swaim to respond to the toast who are they? " Swaim arose, laid down his battle axe and said: " I am an American and I ' m proud of it. I ' m proud of every hair in my head, and I am prouder still to say that I am the only real American here. I started in life as most Indians do without moccasins or war paint. But whoop! Ya! how things have changed. I now own the State University of Iowa, half of Oskaloosa, and I know everything. " With these words he gave another war whoop and sat down. The Toast-master now called upon Prof. Wilcox for a few witty remarks. He thought a moment; then a smile overspread his face and he said: " Ladies and gentlemen: I am going to give you a correct account of an old and a pawn-broker, who created his old young great grandfather of a hundred and ten years of age before he was born of a large roil of snuff of two ounces weight. He never gave good weight in his life to rich or poor. He got his youngest daughter married to his second hand sweep chimney, who came in the appearance of an estated gentleman, but afterwards proved a butter-milk dandy. This dandy was born the year of ninety-ten, and was bred fast asleep in a place called Fiddler ' s Garden where chinch bugs carried mill stones in their breeches pockets and turkeys chew tobacco. This had been his daughter ' s wedding night when he only eat ten quarts of the spirits of Dublin and drunk seven more of sweet sour butter- milk, and eat twelve quarts of bread in the county Amthreme in North America. After this noble feast he took his leave of the company at the hour thirty-three o ' clock when he was fast asleep with his eyes open. lie had only been two minutes asleep when a dreadful ghost made its appearance with the horrible shape of a pig ' s head, having twelve rows of double teeth that were well cemented together with a pair of doeskin breeches a long wig and a pair of three decker brigands. " President Schaeffer now rapped the professor down, and he closed with great bursts of enthusiasm. After this attempt on the part of Prof. Wilcox, the company, tired of the toasts, adjourned to the auditorium on the second floor where the awaited them. As they reached the first landing of the stairs they were greeted by a bedlam of voices " Minor Tactics, only St.00, " " Cigars and Tobacco, " " Sales, S8.00, Carriers, S8.00, " " Lemo, Lemo, " " Annotated Code, $11.50, cheap at half the price. " " Come up! come up, " " Popcorn and Cigarettes, " el cetera ad liginitum. The commotion was explained when they reached the second floor. At the head of the stairs, Chancellor McClain was running a stand, where with a number of Senior Laws (Hull, Halpenny and others), were law books and supplies. Opposite him, Judge Hayes had on sale cigars, chewing tobacco and button-hole bouquets. Lieut. Vogdes, with the help of Sears and Denny was disposing of hundreds of his " Minor Tactics. " All through the hall the stands were scattered so thickly as to make passage well nigh impossible. Mr. Walker had charge of the lemonade made of tartaric acid and water in the right proportion. Mr. Noos was popping corn with a written guarantee that no old maids were to be found in it. The English Department were selling cigarettes, and Prof. McConnell was making large profits with his " Iowa Teacher " and the " Y. M. C. A. But at last the company made their escape into the auditorium and took their seats. Following is the program. SELECTION, BINGO ON TILE RIIINE MESSRS. BIERRING, MCCLAIN, HOUSER AND PETERSBERGER. This was the first appearance of the " Champion Quartet. " They were encored again and again. VIOLIN SOLO AND CLOG DANCE, MESSRS.

DECKER, the Cuban Slugger. This was to settle a life long grudge which has existed between the two. It was a most exciting contest from the beginning. In the fifteenth round Littig landed heavily on Decker ' s jaw, driving him to the ropes. He was unable to rise when time was called. JUGGLING, PROFESSORS ARNER AND SIMS TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND MILE WALK (AROUND THE EARTH) I PROF. SHIMEK. While he is gone the program continues. BALLOON ASCENSION. - The transom was now open, and Prof. Weld started in his aerial riage for a four months journey in the Nebulus. BALLET AND SERPENTINE DANCES. FENCING, PROFESSORS ANDREWS AND SMITH. This was a continuation of the unsatisfactory duel in Hamlet last year. Smith fell in the fourth bout. SELECTION, MOTHER HUBBARD MISS ELENA MACFARLAND. This was a very happy affair. Probably it was the hit of the evening. ELECTROCUTION. Hetzel was placed in the chair by the Juniors. Prof. Veblen showed the audience how it could be done successfully. Hetzel was killed at the first shock. (Great applause.) At this point a telegraphic dispatch is brought in. It read: " In Shanghai Shimek. " TUMBLING, . PICKED SQUAD FROM SENIOR LAW CLASS ARP, C. D.

SEPTEMBER School has opened, big attendance, Students now on every hand, New apartments, new professors, Stacks of Freshies in the land. All are here, e ' en Dents and Medics Homeops and Pharm ' ceuts, too, Right and left to new apartments, Each can find just lots to do. Irving Hall has had new trimming s Also Prexie ' s gloomy room; Everything has had a Looks as if ' t had seen a broom. Now the Freshies come to schedule, Poor, dear things are scared to death Don ' t they see those wise professors- Freshie ' s ' fraid to draw his breath. Eddie ' s chair is filled by Wauchope, Egge ' s place is still the same, Cook, ' 92, has come to aid them that was of base ball fame; Patrick has a new Gilbert is the man he needs; Potter comes to impart Latin; Laws just now have need of Seeds; Sims is here instead of Engineering ' s just the same; Bauer is here in place of Doolittle, Still we ' ll say what ' s in a name? If you ' d know of last year ' s classes You must look through this week ' s Their addresses it will give you And the duties they fulfill. Freshies all are off to chapel, Sophies never reach that door, Junior girls are often seen there, Seniors—never—nevermore! We have all decided, truly, That we must good foot ball play, So, with all our captains chosen, We stand forth in bloody fray. Work in " Gym " has also started, Girls all miss good Kally ' s face, But they ' re just as nice to Ruggles, Who has come to fill his place. On the twenty-fourth of September, Be sure to note the date, The very first Freshman meeting Was held till very late. Tabard holds its yearly ' lection, Zets gain members by the score, All societies in " working " order, Striving hard for more and more. The Frat girls are strangely quiet, Have you heard the reason why? They have signed a binding compact They must all in ambush lie; They have said they ' d do no Not for thirty trying days They could give no teas or parties, But " were nice in other ways. OCTOBER It happened early in the month that Freshies came in view, By making them a President and constitution, too. This month, in truth, belongs to Frat, besides society, For there are few not taken in, with due propriety: For Irvings, Erodelphians, Zets, and Heps, with members proud, Are working hard for victims more, among the motley crowd. The Polygon gains members three, and Ivy Lane wins five; The Tabard finds its usual six, and leaves them all alive; The Betas take in Bloom and Maine, Jeff. Patton, Stover, too, And Carr, at last, though pledged to all, is to the Betas true: Roy Collins joins the Sigma Nus, the Delts rush five or six; The Phi Psis capture several, Phi Delts spike Hobbs and Hicks. The girls ' allotted time is rushing now begins, They all arrange to have a " day " —but Delta Gamma wins And has her party first of all, tho ' other Frats were fixed. Then Bertha Blum, at chapel time, gets Rita and Hattie mixed. The Kappa Gams and Pi Phis, too, have their receptions soon, The new girls have a lovely time, and think they ' ll wait till June To join, in order to be " worked " ; but soon they tire of that, And Bertha thinks she likes them all too well to join one Frat. Ruth Hobby chose the Delta Gams, they also pledge sweet " Dade " ; Miss Mac, of course, joins Kappa Gam— she is a Winnie(ng) maid, And with her they are glad to spike Miss Myers and Julia P. And Mabel Foster joins Pi Phi and so does Emma E. Vidette and Quill are fighting, Hand-Book out, and Fall Meet, In which the Freshies, bold and brave, give all the rest defeat. The Sophies ' social ' s giv ' n, the Seniors have a spread, And foot ball now is all the rage, but better nothing said. The Gordon lecture comes this month, monotony to break, And as October closes, all can feel the earthquake shake. NOVEMBER ' T was just this time, November, The first thing that we notice (Perhaps you ' ll say ' t was late,) Is Irving—Zet Debate We planned to have a calendar Th e latter comes off victor So please don ' t search each date. ' T is just the Hand of Fate. ' T is much we ' ve heard of football, A game most every day, Some team has been defeated, Or some has won, we ' ll say. But on the day of reck ' ning, The wily Soph ' s ahead, But Freshie comes in close behind And said! The Faculty are entertained, At Schaeffer ' s, I believe, The Pi Phis have a candy pull; And Kappa Gams receive; The Guild then give a party: A few " Frat hops " ensue; The Henery feeds the Bee Hive With sugar candy stew. While our first ' leven ' s fighting The brave Nebraska team, Reserves beat Wilton A pity— it doth seem! The girls in " gym " play basket ball (The Sophomore—Junior game) The last is beaten badly It ' s always just the same. This Redpath concert, It was a gorgeous treat, A new society is started, Which makes the list complete. The Junior boys are sporting canes; The boys, in Armory drill. And football being ended The Cross Runs fill the bill. Again we play Nebraska, Upon Thanksgiving Day, Nebraska wins the game at last, But both played well they say. Now comes two days of The Turkey act takes place Plum puddin, ' turkey, cranberry sauce Now greet us face to face. DECEMBER The Freshies now have called a ' s it all about? They ' ll have their banquet on the how did it get out? Committee on refreshments make out their bill of fare, But getting " stuck, " they call upon a Senior who is there— ' T was Helen know her helped them out that day But whether she helped them later on I ' m not prepared to say. Of course the Freshies had a time in reaching the hotel, But Sophs were foiled on every they knew it well. Four Maud and Ruth, and Milfred Myers, too, Were tired that night, and " flunked " next day in classes not a few. The next " At Home " of Kappa Gam was at Prof. Wilson ' s home; Then Whiteside at the Opera House, we ' re glad that he could come. Old Mother Goose receives her friends one night at Armory, This month we all for pictures sit, class, frat, society. A number of our students now are learning how to dance, But two young men could not get in, two Delts they were, by chance. The Phi Delt Phi all celebrate their date of founding here, The local ' Lumni banquet next; we wish them much good cheer. Then William Carleton lectures here, the Delts all go, in truth, For this great man, a Delt was he, in school days of his youth. A Phi Beta Kappa charter here is granted to a few. The Zets have oyster is paid by officers just new. The schedules for " exams " are out; O dear! O dear!! O dear!!! But glad are we when Christmas comes; Vacation now is here! Thismonth ' s the last of all the year--our calendar ' s complete. Now ev ' ry week the HAWKEYE BOARD with anxious faces meet, At last deciding, sure as fate, at close We ' d work real hard, with might and main, of HAWKEYES to dispose; So be at hand, O Homeops, ye Dents and Medics all, The book ' s for you, as well as us, so come and on us call. O come ye Laws and " Pharmeshutes, " ye Profs. and students, too, This HAWKEYE ' S just the book you need—see what a ' ll do. With just this little hint we ' ll close,-O please don ' t think it queer, In closing now—we wish you all A Happy, Bright New Year Collegiate ' 95 ALTHOUGH subject to stronger opposition from than any succeeding class has known, the one hundred and fifteen Freshmen entering the Collegiate Department in the fall of were able to complete their organization as the Class of ' 95. Side by side these classmates toiled, their triumphs and their defeats; each one trying to gather in as many honors as possible for their Class and for their Alma Mater. They worked so faithfully and so well during their four years stay with us, that we can say that in June, we graduated one of our classes. Commencement week was ushered in by a class breakfast at the at 9 o ' clock, Monday morning. Continuing the exercises of their Class Day, they filed up the old central walk, in the afternoon, and on nature ' s own carpet beneath a canopy formed by the boughs of gnarled oaks, and pliant hard maples carried out this program: CLASS POEM, THERESA PEET CLASS HISTORY, . G. W. LAWRENCE KIRKWOOD ORATION, . JOE ALLEN CLASS SONG, " S. U. I. " COMPOSED BY ZULEMA KOSTOMLATSKY. ADVICE, TO OUR LEGISLATURE, . HARRY KEEFE FAREWELL ADDRESS, . FRANCES DAVIS At the completion of this program, the Class repaired to the library where they had placed against the wall a large and beautiful clock, which Jesse Kinmonth, in behalf of the Class, presented to the University. Schaeffer responded in a very neat little speech. Returning to the campus, with Carl Weidner as Chaplain, the last sad rites were performed, and the exercises were closed by giving the Class Yell. In the evening the Class assembled at the opera house where Decker, Davis, Anderson, and Mason, supported by Misses Kostomlatsky, Gilchrist, Alford, and Robinson displayed their dramatic ability, The program con- Werts IS THE MAN WHO MAKES Groups THAT ARE JUST AS GOOD AT THE EXTREME EDGE AS AT THE CENTER.

J. COLLINS - PERMANENT CLASS SECRETARY, - - - JOHN V. CRUM Law Class of 1895 was one of the most popular ever graduated from that Department of our University. It was one of the few classes of our professional Departments that grasped the importance and true meaning of a genuine University spirit. No University enterprise but that at their hands hearty and substantial encouragement. They were extremely loyal to our University athletics, and furnished us such men as Allen, Bremner, Converse, Herrig, Collins, Garrison, Crum, Robinson, and others. This Class had the honor of holding the Inter-Class cup during their entire stay at the University; they also furnished men for the Oratorical and had the debating forum been open to them they would have entered there. In the bronze bust of the late Ex-Chancellor Hammond, they left a splendid and fitting memorial with their Alma Mater. Law Commencement of 1895 The last appearance of Law ' 95 occurred Wednesday morning, June 12th, The Opera House was packed with friends and admirers of the Class from all over the State. Invocation was pronounced by the Rev. of the Congregational Church. The address to the graduating Class was delivered by the Hon. Chas. B. Elliot, of Minneapolis, Minn., L., S. U. I. ' 81. His subject was " Pessimism in Politics. " He said that no young desirous of doing the most good to himself and his community, could be The Growth of The University Is Most Gratifying to all its friends The growth of our business the past few years is remarkable, and can be attributed to these reasons: Complete Assortment.

He insisted that supercilious criticism of modern social and political conditions was a manifestation of the spirit of the times. The past has endured and the future will endure the same evils of which we now complain. Each generation must solve them for themselves. It shows an ignorance of the past to boast it over the present. Those enamored of the past should read the old newspapers. The times of Jefferson and were rife with political calumny, trickery, and fraud. The men who formed our government were our equals in the art of political spoils. They inherited it from England, and England might in turn look back to the Romans. Human nature has remained unchanged through unchanging political conditions. To-day we are told that our statesmen are politicians, our politicians are demagogues, and party has usurped the place of country. But the evils which infest the state are not without precedent, and they will be met and conquered. We will not eliminate partizanship from politics for that is inseparable from republican government. It is in the abuse of politics alone that we discover the only evils. To the eradication of these evils the young lawyer should bend his every effort. This is his function and his duty. After the address the degrees were conferred by President Schaeffer. The oath was administered to the graduates by Judge Robinson for the State, and by Secretary Haddock for the United States Courts. The winners of prizes were first, C. W. Jones; second, F. C. Malloy; third, E. E. Wilson; fourth, S. W. Fallon; and fifth, A. G. Bush. On behalf of the alumni, Judge H. E. Deemer presented the Law Department with a bronze bust of the late Ex-Chancellor Hammond. In a feeling response Chancellor McClain, on behalf of the University, accepted the memorial.

Although this Class did not furnish much material for our athletics, and had no representative in the Contest; yet it did reach the highest point of in the class rooms, and left S. U. I. better equipped for duty than any other Medical Class that we have graduated. The Opera House was crowded with friends of ' 95 when the exercises began. The feature of the evening was the address by Hon. James H. Trewin, of Lansing, Iowa. on " Some of the Legal Relations and Obligations of Physicians. " He said that the legal qualifications of a Doctor of Medicine are only the outward badge of capability; that the physician hibernates unless he reads the medical journals and the works of the leaders in his profession, and loves and studies the profession that he has chosen to follow. Medicine is a noble science; and has accomplished much against great opposition; yet its greatest triumphs are to follow in the prevention rather than cure of Just as the law has helped him, in requiring that all physicians come up to a legal standard, so the law can help him in the development of science. At the close of the address, President Schaeffer conferred the degrees upon the following persons, whose location and present occupation are given so far as they could be determined: " Washburn " guitars, Mandolins Zithers are endorsed by all professionals as are endorsed by all professionals as The Best Their strong points are Purity and Volume of Tone—Durability—Workmanship.

Dental Class of ' 95 In the fall of ' 92 about sixty-five youn g men and women entered as Freshmen in the Dental Department cf the The year was spent in laying a solid foundation on which to build the superstructure in the succeeding years. A little excitement was caused during the first few months by the suspension of some of the members for running a private barber shop, in which one, Johnson, lost a valuable moustache. But no results followed this action; else thirty-nine would not have returned for the Junior year. The new building afforded room for all to do clinic work, and the practical part of the science was especially looked after in ' 93 and In the Senior year, twenty-six of the that entered with the class received the finishing touches on their education, and graduated with honor to themselves and to the University Monday, evening, March, 11th, 1895, at the Opera House was held the Thirteenth Annual Commencement of the Dental Department. The annual address was given by Prof. C. S. Chase, A.M., M.D., of Waterloo, Iowa; subject, " Good Citizenship. " The subject was developed in a masterly way, and those who were fortunate enough to hear it, will never forget the points brought forward by the speaker. After the exercises at the Opera House, the graduates tendered a reception to their friends, in the City Armory. A banquet and dancing the reception and thus Commencement Day was ended.

Homeopathic Class of ' 95 This Class, which entered the University, in with members, finished its course, and was graduated evening, March 12th, 1895, at the Opera House. Eighteen received degrees at that time. The exercises were opened by music by the S. U. I. Band. After the offering of the invocation by Rev. Dr. Bullock, the address was given by Rev. Dr. S. N. Watson on the subject, " The Ethics of the Profession. " He said there are no special ethics for any more than for any other class of men. The only ethics governing them are those included in the esteem which they have for others, and to treat all men as men. The old code of medical ethics has almost passed out of existence, and a new code has taken its place, based upon principles of honesty and integrity. The physician fills one of the most important in human life; and to fill this successfully and reliably he must learn the lesson of self-control. He should never neglect to inform himself of think as well as perceive. The study of medicine should teach a man the greatest of caution—the greatest reverence. A physician must have not only education but character.

Internationalism This Oration won first place in the A.O.L.. Contest held at Iowa City, May 3rd, 1895 Author, Jas.H. Mays THE nation is composed of individuals, as the mass is composed of atoms. In the beautiful discovery of Newton, we learn that the same law which governs the smallest atom, governs also the largest mass, even to the universe of planets and suns . Individuals, bound in fellowship by one great rule of right, consent to have the fierceness of their nature restrained for the common welfare. They are constrained to live with common purposes, strive for common advancement, rejoice in common blessings, suffer common disasters; in common they glory in mutual happiness, and in the victories of peace, " no less renowned than war. " So nations, after squandering their resources upon the art of destruction, after ages of dreadful warfare, are likewise coming to realize the awful folly of continual discord. They, too, are beginning to appreciate the significance of moral laws; to beware lest they disregard the divine command, " Love thy neighbor as thyself; " to observe the same great rule of right that binds in fellowship. This growing spirit of mutual helpfulness we call Internationalism. What is the origin, the development, the mission of this bond of fellowship among the nations? I. With our savage forefathers, the family was the nation. Apart from actual kinship, there was no brotherhood. Every man outside this petty circle was an enemy to be slain as the wild beast of the jungles. Beginning to realize the strength of united action, families formed into tribes under chiefs to wage more relentless warfare upon all other tribes. As the rays of civilization penetrated deeper into the gloom, these tribes, stirred by the same restless energy, united into larger communities and settled upon fixed habitations.

IOWA CITY, IOWA. occupied by petty lordships and communities, separate and distinct. At first they professed no common interest, cultivated no friendly relations, recognized no rights claimed by members of other communities, and treated all men the narrow limits of their province as enemies. Each held it to be the great aim of life to carry on successful warfare, and zealously maintained, as do nations now, the right to make war on every other community. Their association was for mutual destruction. Every principality was intolerant, bigoted, selfish. Within their own border lines, the people were enjoined to recognize the brotherhood of man; outside these limits, they were licensed and encouraged to pilfer and murder without restraint. Within their borders, they lived in harmony; outside, they roamed the ' seas as pirates, ravaged the land as bandits, annihilated villages, gave no quarter, sparing not even women or children. It was one continuous story of dreadful warfare from the time When man walked with beast, Joint tenant of the shade. " Gradually it dawned upon the minds of men that there was nothing in political lines to make them foes; they began to realize that they were men, who ha d much in common. They said one to another, we will further unite for common defense and mutual advancement. " Just as the smaller bodies by degrees had been drawn into fellowship, these larger bodies were fused into nations. Primitive Rome was formed by the union of small The countless principalities of Great Britain were gradually merged into seven kingdoms, and then united into one great kingdom under Egbert, the Saxon. In France we see Roman, Iberian, Teuton, and Celt, once stirred by angry passions, now blended into a powerful republic. Spain, a composite of numerous races of different religion and government, became a nation in the fifteenth century by the union of Castile and Aragon. once consisting of more than three hundred distinct principalities, each in bloody strife with the others, now presents a mighty empire, united at home and respected abroad. And on this side the sea, many great states, inclined at first to be indifferent to the common weal, disposed to be sovereignties, united their interests, and to-day present a typical example of what brotherly spirit may do for the nations of the world. Thus, with the gradual association of tribes and communities, great nations were formed, each invoking the blessings of united, friendly action upon the principalities. The torch of the incendiary was extinguished, the license of the robber revoked, the red hand of the assassin arrested, the mad fury of the mob restrained, and the once hostile factions were welded into great nations. II. Such was the result of fellowship of communities. Consider the development of this spirit among nations. Internally, each rejoiced in the mutual friendship of its numerous provinces; but, strange to say, toward its neighbors, assumed a hostile front. This attitude of the nations caused Burke HAWKEYE HAWKEYE HAWKEYE STEAM LAUNDRY. All Work First Class. Telephone 85. Goods Called for and Delivered in any Part of the City. RABENAU CHATHAM, PROPS. 213 S. CLINTON ST. to declare that friendly international relations would afford a pleasing theme for the historian, but " alas! such history would not fill ten pages. " These cordial relations between states of the modern world had their beginning in the Peace of Westphalia, which was confirmed by the principal nations of Europe. Permanent legations were then first securely established. Since then, says Emerson, " all history is the decline of war. " Since then, says Sir Henry Maine, " a moral brotherhood in the whole human race has been steadily gaining ground. " Twenty years ago, Gladstone declared that there had been reserved for England a great and honorable destiny in promoting internationalism. Since these words were spoken, thirty-eight powerful nations have united their moral forces, by the treaty of Geneva, as a against the excesses, miseries, and ferocities of war. They have bound themselves to use every means to relieve the suffering of sick and wounded soldiers; to discourage war, as the best means of attaining that end; to encourage international good will; to mitigate international calamities in time of peace; and place international concord on a more enduring basis. This spirit of mutual fellowship is fast pervading all human society. From the family circle to the tribal community, from the village clan to the broader province, from jealous statehood to national commonwealth, the great rule of right is becoming broad enough and strong enough to embrace all mankind in the general harmony. In recognition of this unity of interest the Pan-American congress assembled at Washington with the highest motives that ever actuated international movements. Representatives of half the civilized world met, not to arouse bitter prejudices, but for better mutual understanding; not to obtain unfair advantages, but to promote the general welfare; not to cultivate the art and terrible amusement of war, but to form closer commercial relations; not to witness the parade of military forces, but to obviate all necessity for the maintenance of navies and great standing armies, such as are now crushing out the life of Europe. Let those who would sneer at the growing spirit of internationalism, remember that never before did there convene a congress of nations with the common purpose of agreeing, not upon military plans, not to incite their people to tumult and carnage, not to foster cruelty and superstition, not to do homage to the God of Battles, but to adopt the motto of peace and fellowship, and thus secure enduring prosperity in the western world. III. Brief as has been the history of these great movements, certain principles and methods have been clearly defined. What then is the mission of internationalism? Though slow in development, its spirit has long been appealing to the better nature of the individual man, and is now beginning to pervade the councils of nations. What is there in boundary lines to c onvert a brother-man into a deadly foe? Ought the conduct of nation toward nation to be less humane than that of man toward man? Shall nations still retain barbarous methods of determining justice, while judicial tribunals by exercise of reason adjudicate the rights of individuals? Shall we execute a man for OUR NEW METHOD DRYER. The Old Reliable.The Old Reliable. KENYON HAM, Props. C.O.D Steam Laundry Strictly First Class Work.

By what reasoning can the crime of the individual become the glory of the nation? Must man put forth every energy against pestilence and famine, while nations upon the slightest pretext " let slip the dogs of war " ? Must he revere and cherish his religion, and yet allow the state to profane it? Must he continue to extol virtue to the skies, and yet permit nations to dethrone it? Must he strive for knowledge, while nations misapply and pervert it? Oh, why must man to toil, and permit the product of his hand and brain to be squandered upon the means of destruction? If it has proved well for individuals, families, tribes, communities, and provinces to strive peaceably together, should not the larger masses of men profit by such example? It is the mission of to answer these questions, and to say to governments, into whose hands the welfare of mankind is placed,— " Therefore take heed How you awake the sleeping sword of w ar: In the name of God, take heed. " Man may yet be blinded by prejudice, nations may yet be lacerated by war, but of this we may be assured; that in the distresses which mankind must suffer, ignorance will never again be so potent a factor, for men are now heirs to the wisdom of the ages; difference in religion will never again so arouse the spirit of intolerance, for man must be left unfettered to obey the dictates of his conscience; difference in race and language will never again be so strong a barrier to friendly intercourse, for all nations are coming to recognize the brotherhood of man; distance will never again render interests so vague and remote, for the messengers of intelligence and of commerce, like shuttles, are rushing to and fro over the earth, " weaving the nations into one. " Stupendous political movements, which in times past, would have brought havoc and carnage, must in future be conducted through quiet deliberations. Questions, which a few years ago would have been sure heralds of war, must be determined before a supreme court of the nations. Already it is the law of nations to do in time of peace the most good and in time of war the least evil. Arbitration is the rule; and when war does occur, it is divested of its most atrocious cruelties. Nations begin to realize that disaster needs no aid or encouragement from the government; that humanity will suffer enough at best; that governments are the servants of men, and not their masters; that they are institutions for man ' s benefit, and not for his torture; that they are builders and not that they are means to an end, and that end the advancement of civilization.
