Compelled to perform in five months what previous boards have been given nearly a year to accomplish, we trust that our many errors will be looked upon with charity—none are so conscious of them as are we. In preparing this book it has been our constant aim to produce a volume which would be at once a work of present interest to S. U. I. students, a handbook of the University, and a permanent souvenir of the student ' s college life. If we have accomplished any of these purposes our labors have not been in vain, and we only ask that the book be received as embodying the best efforts of THE EDITORS.

It was a year of steady progress, standing the fact that it witnessed the most serious disaster that ever befell a western university. The incidents which have contributed to make the year ant have not been such as to give rise to a newspaper notoriety, but ours has been a peaceful progress toward a higher standard, a greater influence, and a larger usefulness. The destruction of our general library by fire in the month of June was looked upon by many as a sure check upon our growth; but the event has proved, that not only is there no decrease in the attendance at the University as a whole, but that the Collegiate Department, which, it was supposed, would be most seriously affected, increased in numbers in about the usual ratio. A large proportion of those who have entered this year have come from other colleges. A most significant feature of our growth has been the increase. in the number of graduate students—graduates both of our own University and of other institutions. The large number seeking graduate work here has compelled the faculty to prepare tional courses for advanced degrees, including that of Doctor of Philosophy. Two new chairs have been created in the Collegiate Faculty—that of Government and Administration and that of Morphology. In the coming March the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery will be conferred for the last time upon students taking a course of three six-month years, the course having been lengthened to three nine-month years. Similarly the present Senior class in Medicine is the last of the three-year classes, the course now requiring four years ' work. These requirements materially raise the standard of the University in these two departments. In athletics the year was just fairly successful, but in debate we administered a severe defeat to both our adversaries—the versity of Chicago and the University of Minnesota. 17 University Ube 13ttnitng of the librarp Etten In. no It was four o ' clock, June 19, 1897. For three clays the heat been excessive. An oppressive atmosphere pervaded Toward ing it began rain and good of Iowa from sheer haustion, asleep. A faint glimmer of the coming was in the sky and the night shadows were receding when many were rudely awakened by a vivid flash of lightning anci a terrific crash of thunder. A few minutes later the odor of hot but less pine drifted over the northeastern portion of the city, giving due notice that the lightning had somewhere done its deadly work. Anxious householders searched their premises for traces of fire, the odor of pine still increasing. At last, when several minutes had elapsed, there rang out the alarm of fire. Following this came the dreadful announcement, " The library is on fire. " Hundreds of people rushed to the rescue, but there was no rescue. The lightning had struck the southwest corner of the building and in an incredibly short time the fire had spread under the whole roof. The building being large and tall, with low attic and self-supporting roof, the fire was difficult to reach. The pres. sure at the hydrants was low and the fire companies were weary with 18 a four clays ' tournament, which closed late the night before. Alto- gether it was a combination of unfavorable circumstances, and the flames met little resistance. When entrance was gained to the building, the attic was a seething furnace, to which the only access was through a small seethi man-hole in the ceiling. It became at once apparent that the brary was doomed, and effort was made to save something before the roof came down. By the th ' o tghtfulness and courage of Miss Mary E. Barrett, the reference rian, who was among the first to enter the building, the accession ters were saved from the rian ' s Mr. L. M. of the firemen, while making a heroic effort to save a tion of the card catalogue, located near the center of the building, was caught by falling timbers and perished in the flames.The men were compellel to run for their lives, for at one crash the whole roof gave way, and slate, timbers and plaster all came down into the library. Book cases, with their precious freight, were precipitated to the floor and ignited. It was a wild scene of the fiery elements never to be forgotten. The water supply was insufficient and the marl elements did their worst. Thousands of precious volumes, valuable beyond comparison, became thousands of burning fagots. Useful, every-day working books, such as dictionaries and encyclopedias, Leek, one 19 became of the same caste as the rare old books which had retired from active duty and for many years had reposed in serene majesty upon their lofty shelves. The rare copy of St. bound in pig-skin, was fallen to the level of Webster, and Allibone and Appleton. A hundred choice bibles, printed in Hebrew, in Sanskirt, in Hindoo, and sian, lay prostrate beside bound copies of Harper ' s, Scribner ' s, and the Forum. The cinders of Thomas Hope ' s beautiful tions of The Ancient Costume were mingled with those of Puck and Die Fliegende Blatter. The stately volumes of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton, participated in the same mad carnival with Mark Twain and Ignatius Donnelly. Ruskin was hurled down, enveloped in the same flame which consumed the Critic and the Dial. Thirty rare, beautiful volumes from the British Plaeontological Society, compiled for this library by Mr. Rich, were made one with the embers of Gray ' s nies and Steele ' s common school series. bon ' s birds, the elephantine ume of Victoria Regia, the derful Me- designs of the Pyramids consumed by the same flame which devoured Government meats. All which money and genius could collect on Archaeology lay smoldering in a common heap with modern history and literature. The autographs of many distinguished scholars and heroes were 20 the charts of the U. S. Coast Survey and the tin iversitr common dust beside the daily registers and account books. Bound copies of the theses of many alumni relinguished their ity to an all-consuming flame. And, Oh! the pity of it all, that the labor, the time, the anxiety, the solicitude, the self-sacrifice, which have gone to make up a great library—a library which should not only be the pride of the state but which should be the meat and drink, the stimulus and inspiration of thousands and thousands of students—that all should become cinders and charred remnants to be shoveled into carts and dumped by the wayside. Those who for nearly forty years have witnessed the library grow from a few hundred volumes to a collection, rare and useful; who have seen this set of books, then another, then another added; have watched the leaves of many a volume grow thin, and times ragged with excessive use; have seen the eves of students kindle with a new light and an awakening sense of the value of so many useful books; have seen students reluctant to leave the room when the clay was clone, and awaiting the opening of the doors in the morning; to such the calamity of fire is simply appaling. The loss to the library was, in round numbers, sand bound volumes and nearly fifteen thousand pamphlets. The only portion saved, of all which was in the building, was from the D. H. Talbot collection, which numbered four thousand two dred and eighty volumes. Of this perhaps two thousand five dred volumes will be saved. They await the skill of the binder. Among the the losses were many gifts to the library; the Talbot lection, just mentioned, was the gift of D. H. Talbot of Sioux City, Iowa; the Walter Tallant memorial library of two hundred umes, consisted of choice books upon Art and Architecture; the German library of four hundred beautiful books, which Prof. Wilson had industriously collected; the Alumni Americana lection of about seventy-five exceedingly rare volumes; some of the latter being in the librarian ' s office were saturated yid] water, but not burned, and were subsequently dried in a certain kitchen in the north part of town. There were also in the room some class memorials. The flames paid no respect to the large Visitor ' s 21 ister and its artistic stand, which were presented by the class of 1893. In the same ruthless manner it destroyed the elegant hogany clock presented by the class of 1894. On the walls were the portraits of all of the presidents of the University except Dr. Dean and Dr. Schaeffer; also a fine photograph of Samuel J. Kirkwood, and large photographs of several of the early ors of the Institution. There were plaster busts of Homer, Shakespeare, Scott, Goethe, and Franklin; there was the silk flag given. by the girls of the Uni- versity to the boys who went out as hundred-clay men during the war; the plaster cast of the Rosetta Stone; the inter-class cup; the individual donations of books amounting to several hundred umes. Perhaps no library in the west had a finer collection of tions of Goethe and works in early English than this, but they were all burned and there was left only a pile of roofless rubbish ing in pity to an open yet pitiless sky. Before the burning ceased, the librarian and a few firemen, at their peril, entered the building, the firemen to remove the body of their dead comrade, and the librarian to begin the rescue of such books as might remain. Many willing workers proffered ance. Baskets and shovels were secured, the smoldering piles searched for unconsumed treasures, and whatever was worth ing at all was carried to the Central Building to be dried, and, if possible, saved. The hall, the President ' s office, the rooms of Profesors Currier, Wilson and Loos were invaded by wet and charred books. On chairs, tables, window-sills, and floors were piled the sorry remnants. Under suitable direction, over thirty willing workers, ladies and gentlemen, began the task of drying books. The June phere, instead of lending aid, grew more- and more humid, so that the last resort was to put on heat. This materially hastened the process of drying, although much to the discomfiture of those working, as well as to the annoyance of the Chancellor in his rooms above stairs. The law lecture room and the law library were utilized and possible was done to save what money may never 11 ' University! again replace. The Chancellor sought a cool retreat in the science building, Prof. Veblen and his assistants worked steadily away in the Latin quarter, drying and polishing the wet and injured ments from the physical laboratory, while the Librarian opened an office in Prof. Wilson ' s room. The beginning of a new library, with everything on consumed and the shelf-list and card catalogue gone, was no easy task. The professors, whose departments suffered most from the fire. rendered valuable aid in making out lists of books for their departments. Later, the Librarian ' s office was moved to the dental building. When the term opened another move was made to the basement of the Unitarian Church. As soon as the old library building was repaired, the office and the new books made another trip across the campus. In the mean time two rooms in the basement of the Central Building had been fitted up to hold the blackened remnants of the Talbot library. Purchases and donations of new books have amounted to over five thousand volumes. These have been catalogued and placed upon the shelves. Available funds are nearly exhausted and all look hopefully to the coming legislature for much needed priations. 23 JOHN VANFLEET CRUM 24 3obn Vanflect Crum " The glory of young men is their strength. " HE strength of young men is not alone that which well developed muscle contributes. A body erect, well poised, pulsating with vigor, alert in every movement, attracts attention and Wig 4. 4 4 wins merited praise. el But these conditions are attainable only when the physical powers are under the trol of a strong will—itself subject to a wart moral purpose. The true athlete must interweave moral and muscular fibre. His manhood becomes glorious when he seeks a place worthy his highest possibilities. Physical strength awakens wonder; intellectual strength excites admiration; stalwart character needs no word of praise, for it wins its way into all hearts. Worthy aspirants take such a character as their model. Such a model was JOHN VANFLEET CRUM. Manliness, esty, honor and conscientiousness were his inspiration in all that he undertook. His training for athletic contests was not, as is too often the case, severe for a time and followed by a period of self-indulgence. His strength was not built up for an occasion, but was the result of constant self-control, energized by self-respect. Self-mastery brought him success. He loved to win in contests, as who does not? To win honestly was his pride; the sharper the contest, the greater his satisfaction. After his most brilliant triumphs he turned to his studies with modesty not one whit abated. The praise bestowed upon him brought no elation of spirit that could be observed by his fellows. He believed in doing his best at all 2,5 times, and claimed no merit for meeting- the expectation of his friends. What was their due was his pleasure. In nothing was his manliness more conspicuous than in his. bearing under the charge of professionalism preferred by his feated antagonists. Conscious of his integrity he patiently awaited his sure acquittal. He entered the field of amateur athletics under the conviction that success would follow virtuous living. His motto was an. adage of the Apostle Paul, " Every one that striveth for the mastery must be temperate in all things. " To this he added, " And at all times. " In a conversation with him soon after his only defeat, he revealed his nobility of character, as well as his adherence to his motto, when he said: " I do not regret my defeat so much for itself, which I feel was clue to a condition of body induced by excessive demands. made upon me in unnecessary preliminary contests, as for the fear. that some may think that I carried my convictions regarding sonal habits to an extreme. My opponent did use stimulants. But my faith is still unshaken. " The effect of John V. Crum ' s example has been salutary and will be lasting. May his mantle continue, as it has thus far done, to. fall upon worthy shoulders. Amateur athletics in the University will be pure so long as the. memory of their noble exponent endures.

He was in the noblest sense of that old word, a gentleman. While a boy he determined to devote himself to the manufacture of iron and steel. Never swerving from this purpose, lie yet devoted many years of his youth to the pursuit of distinctly liberal culture. He became a leader in the graceful, bracing life of Harvard versity. Several of his short stories appeared during 1891-1893 in the " Harvard Advocate, " of which magazine he became an editor. This exercise of his distinct gift helped to develop a wonderful charm and his character, of which the basis was manful strength. After being graduated in 1893, Robert ' s life was that of a work- ing man in the Eagle Manufacturing Works of Davenport, in the Sylvan Steel Company ' s plant at Moline, and in the Carnegie mills at Homestead, Pennsylvania. In the midst of toil that would have exhausted most men he found time for study; and being elected Captain of Company B of the Iowa National Guard, he succeeded in clearing off in a few weeks the company ' s debt of many thousand dollars. His great energy, however, was thrown mostly into his work, and at the time of his fatal sickness he was reaching masterly skill and knowledge. Few men have been loved so widely and so well. At college, in the National Guard, in the steel mills, everywhere. he made men quickly and forever his friends. Hundreds of working men looked to him not only as their future employer, but as a leader born to help them to brighter and better life. Many a vexing economic problem would have been solved by the strength and love and dom of this nobly practical man. His city, Davenport, loved him, knowing his achievement and his wealth of promise. Iowa, his state, should know them too, and in her University, whose highest 39 Vtniversit purpose is to train men of his type, knowledge and memory of Robert French should be held precious.. A memorial gold medal, to be called The Robert Tillinghast French medal, is therefore offered this year for the best graduate short story—a kind of work in which while at college he excelled. The competitors must be undergraduates of the State versity of Iowa, who have never received an academic degree. There must be at least ten competitors, and there must he a story of real merit. If these conditions are not fulfilled during the school year 1897-1898, the award of the medal is to be withheld until a year when the conditions are met. The story is to be from three to six thousand words in length, and is to be in the hands of the judges before May Toth. 1898. The names of the judges will be announced in the college papers. In memory of the man who, of all the men I have known, had in him the largest, tenderest humanity and the most loving fulness, in memory of our friendship, sacred in death, the Robert Tillinghast French Medal is offered by his friend, A Graduate of Iowa University. 40 41 ' Universitv Organi3ations Voting ilDen ' s Christian Elssociation Officers J.

At present debating- has become as important a feature of University activity as is foot-ball or any other interest outside of class-room work. The development of debating at Iowa University has been a sistent and healthful evolution. Ever since the founding of our erary societies—away back in the early sixties—debate has been the absorbing and characteristic vent to student enthusiasm and ambition. With the development of the University, this typical product of its activity grew apace. Originating- in the Collegiate Department, debating societies and clubs for its culture and encouragement were soon organized in the other schools of the University. The present inter-society contests were the natural and logical sequence, and following these, in 1893 our first collegiate contest occurred. During these years of forensic strife and conflict, Iowa has built up a system of debate peculiarly and characteristically her own. Beginning with the novice and ending with our inter-collegiate representatives, it is one complete process of elimination, invariably insuring " the survival of the fittest. " Whether this system has been a failure or a success, the follow- ing eloquent facts sufficiently reveal. We have participated in six inter-collegiate debates, the records of which are here appended: 51 laniversit Organi3ations 1111ith the `University of BIStnnesota, Map 25, 1893, at Minneapolis QUESTION: Resolved, that the United States Government should own and operate the telegraph system.

Between the years 1858 and 1898 S. U. I. sent forth 4,752 graduates. Of these very many have attained distinction in the various walks of life—so many that were the Hawkeye to sketch the life of each, its pages would be occupied for many years to come. We do, however, offer here a handful of our fruits--we do not say they are our choicest—that it may be known that the children of the University do not fail to carry out the wishes expressed by Prexy when he gives them their diplomas and his blessing and says: " May your course through life be true; May you honor your Alma Mater As she thus honors you.

On the paternal side they came England in the early colonial days, and purchased from William Penn, and afterwards joined i n the war of the lution and of 1812. Mr. Craven is now President of the Mon- tana Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. His was a Baptist minister, a graduate fro m Miami University of In his early youth his parents moved to Minnesota, and there during the trying experiences of the famous uprising of the hostile Sioux, and afterwards moved to Iowa, where he inured to the labor of the farm, attended the country schools, and the Academy at Irking in Benton County; teaching- at the age of sixteen years, and taught five terms of school before reaching the State University, at the age of entering the University in the Spring Term of the first or sub-Freshman year. With the exception of about $250.00 nished him from home, he secured for himself the means for college course, and graduated from the Classical Course with class of 1882. During the Senior year he was Business Manager Vidette Reporter. He took an active interest in the work of his. literary society, secured first place in his class in the Junior cal contest, and the following year took first rank in the state test, in which there were twelve contestants, and represented at the inter-state contest held at Indianapolis in May, 1882, ing second prize. The year following graduation he had charge the public schools at West Branch, Iowa, and then engaged in reading of law at Newton, where he was admitted to the bar 1884. In the following summer he was happily married 79 ittuntni to Emily Kerr, the sister of his former college chum, James A. Kerr, of the class of 1881, and removed to Helena, Montana, his present residence. He is known as a successful lawyer, was a member of the Constitutional Convention which formulated the Constitution of his State, and was a prominent member of the Fourth tive Assembly, being Chairman of the Judiciary Committee in the House. He served one term as municipal attorney and for three years was a member of the Board of Education. His home, below the brow of Mt. Helena, commands a view of the great Continental Divide, twelve miles to the West. Both in his law practice and before a general audience he is distinguished by that earnest, ful character of address which made him prominent in his earlier years at the University. 3ames Oust ISerrpbill GUEST BERRYHILL was born in Iowa City, Iowa, November 5, 182, where his early childhood was spent. At eight years of age he went to Louisa County, and during the exciting events of the civil war was living quietly in the country hunting and fishing, becoming acquainted with birds and trees and their habits, and learning to shoot squirrels and ducks with a gun of revolutionary fame, though somewhat deficient in practical usefulness, having a crooked barrel and requiring nice adjustments to meet the conditions of accuracy. He entered the State University of Iowa in January, 1867. There was then a paratory Department of two years. He graduated from the legiate Department in 1873 and from the Law in 1876, after which he removed to Des Moines, Iowa, where he determined to locate to practice law, in partnership with his student friend. George F. Henry, of Davenport, Iowa, which firm is still in existence. He 80 married, in 1881, Virginia J. Slagle, of Fairfield, Iowa, also a uate of the State ' University, where the acquaintance which ended in marriage was begun. Reared and educated within the confines of Iowa, Mr. has always been deeply interested in the conditions and ment of his native state. With a wide knowledge of public affairs and deep convictions of the duty of citizenship, he has considered it an honorable duty to be identified with movements tending- toward the public welfare. He served the State in two sessions of the Gen- eral Assembly of 1886 and 1888, interesting, himself in railway leg-- islation ; the location of the Supreme Court at the Capitol; the needs of the various institutions, and as Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations an influence which cleared the State of indebtedness. He bore the brunt of a battle which was beginning in the Republican party against the prohibition wing, and carried Polk County against open and concealed opposition within the ranks. As a business man he has taken a part in the steady and healthful commercial development of the State, and has had pride in showing what the soil of Iowa can do in producing- a good quality and variety of fruit, in which effort his characteristics of perseverance and determination have had abundant opportunity to lie displayed upon a fruit farm a few miles from Des Moines, where lie still resides. fOro. Virginia 3. Verrvbilt who were students at the State University of Iowa in the seventies remember as a general favorite a clever young girl from Fairfield. She was looked upon as, in some ure, a daughter of the University. Her father, Judge Christian W. Slagle. had for years been an honored regent of the institution. He had done yeoman service in laying foundations, broad and deep, 81 Elm nt for a great western school. The University was dear to his heart, and, in time, the man who evinced such devotion to a public was esteemed beyond words. It was in January, 1873, that Virginia J. Slagle, now Mrs. James G. Berrvhill, of Des Moines, entered the State as a student. She was but fifteen years of age, a girl of winsome grace and manner, as well of rare loveliness of acter. Fair and flowerlike in appearance though she was, it soon became apparent that she was to rank with the first wherever arly attainments, mental vigor, and power of application were to he measured. In those days the literary societies were much more -of a feature of school life than they are today. Miss Slagle became a member of the Erodelphian Society, and before long a recognized leader in its literary work. An easy and graceful writer, she was also a pleasing and eloquent speaker, and when a particularly cult place was to be filled, the selection in that society was quite sure to include Miss Slagle. The class of ' 77, State University of Iowa, a remarkably fine one in point of ability, had no more gifted member than Miss Slagle, nor was there another upon whom the affection of the class was so generally centered. After graduation came the goal of every young girl ' s ambition—a trip abroad. There was extensive travel through the countries of Europe and thing like a year ' s study in France and Germany. Upon her return to this country Miss Slagle accepted a position as teacher in the Pennsylvania Female College, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, which she filled for one year with signal success. Following close upon her year ' s work as a teacher came her marriage to James G. Berryhill, a brilliant young lawyer of the Capital City of Iowa. As Mrs. Berry- hill, charming and gracious, refined and cultured, the mistress of one of the happiest and most artistic homes in Des Moines, it is not strange that she is much sought after in social and literary circles. Mrs. Berry:hill is the mother of two lovely children, and it is in the sacred relations of the home that she rises to her full dignity and power. A more devoted home-keeper and mother it would be 82 Ellumni impossible to find, while, together with her husband, she makes her home the center of the social and intellectual life of the place. But Mrs. Berryhill ' s sympathies are too broad and her nature too generous to permit her activities to be limited to her own family. In charitable work she is by no means inactive, though her modesty makes her a close follower of the scriptural injunction not to allow her one hand to know what the other doeth. In this era of literary clubs a woman of Mrs. Berrvhill ' s superior intellectual gifts and social graces could scarcely do otherwise than become a leader among women. It was early in the history of the Des Moines Women ' s Club that she became one of its most valued Avorkers and an efficient member of its Board of Directors. In 1892 Mrs. Berryhill was elected President of the Club, and through her energy and faithfulness the Club reached a degree. of usefulness that it had never hitherto known. It was during Mrs. Berrvhill ' s administration as President, and largely through her influence, that steps were taken for the federation of the clubs of Iowa. Amidst general enthusiasm, Mrs. Berryhill was chosen first dent of the Iowa Federation of Women ' s Clubs. There could not have been a better choice, as was demonstrated by her wise tion of affairs, the fine tact with which she brought discordant ments into harmony, and the ability and absolute fairness with which she filled the chair. Mrs. Berryhill represented the Iowa Federation of Clubs at the Congress of Representative omen at the World ' s Fair, delivering one of the most practical and scholarly addresses of the week. In the spring of 1894, as President of the Iowa Federation of Women ' s Clubs, Mrs. Berryhill went to delphia as a delegate to the Second Biennial convention of the National Federation of Clubs, where she had the honor of ing an address which made a profound impression, so admirable was it in spirit and diction. She gave as the Shibboleth for club Avork the words, " Wisdom and Love, " a motto which has ever 83 alumni since held sway in the national organization. At Philadelphia, Mrs. Berryhi11 was elected a member of the Executive Board of the General Federation, upon which she served for two years with dis- tinguished ability, and with credit to the state which she resented. The State University may well be proud of so gifted a daughter, and the young people of Iowa need not fear to patronize a school which gives a training so liberal and a culture so noble as that pos- sessed by the subject of this sketch.

At the age of three he spent one mer in northern Germany, and three years later returned to Germany, where he began his school life. His father again returning to America Mr. Treimer completed his High. School work at Dixon and then entered a business college at enport. After completing the course there he taught school near home for several years. Dissatisfied with the school he again took up the student ' s task at Cedar Falls, where he finished the four years ' course in 1894. He entered the Iowa State University in the fall of 1894. After one year of study he accepted the position of Instructor in German in the West Des Moines High School. From there he was called to the Instructorship in German in t he. University in the fall of 1896. This position he held until his death, March 2, 1897. As a student Mr. Treimer won the hearts of professors and fellow students by his earnest spirit and genial nature. He was found in many organizations and was always helpful through his ability to organize and to incite enthusiasm in others. As an associate, he was sympathetic and jovial, always seeing the best things for others, although not so apt to do so for himself. His natural shyness rather repelled strangers, though his manly, open countenance and. address always attracted attention and interest. To his friends he was a fine companion, helpful and earnestly devoted to their ests, even before his own. He was a member of the Lutheran church and active in his support of the Pastor. As an instructor Mr. Treimer was successful in the highest sense. He lived among his students; their interests were his, and his own experiences well fitted him to understand and sympathize with the student body. In the death of Mr. Treimer the lost one of her est young minds, one of her most devoted workers and one whose work must have been an honor to her as to himself, and to the family who so deeply mourn a beloved son and brother. 103 Collegiate Cbe ' Sew Collegiate kuilOing At the meeting of the Board of Regents, March 28th, the plan for this structure will be decided upon and an architect selecte d. The building is to be three stories, above an eleven foot basement. and of a style of architecture to harmonize with the Central Building. It will contain accommodations for the chairs of German, French, Latin, Greek, English, Mathematics, Pedagogy, History, ogy, Political Science, and Government and Administration. Besides rooms for lectures and recitations, each chair will have an office and Seminary room, and the chair of will have ample laboratories. T here will be the Dean ' s Office, a large and well appointed Ladies ' Waiting Room, a large General Lecture Room, an Elocution Room, and temporary accommodations for the Library, also closets, toilets, and lavatories, and a Bicycle Room. The floor space on each story will be about 17,00o feet, exclusive of halls and corridors. It is to be fire-proof throughout, and ished with an eye to service, durability and comeliness. The tion will be in the Southeast corner of the Campus. It goes without saying that the work of the chairs provided for will be greatly facilitated by these larger and completer modations and by the grouping of all instructors of each chair in immediate connection with its books of reference and other appliances.

Miles Collins 147 Collegiate Orgaiii3ations Ube IYtrst Volvilon Once in the land of the lotus The land of the Nile, the fair Egypt, There dwelt a rich king and a mighty. The noblest of sovereigns, Aretes. Aretes was judged a wise ruler, Endeav ' ring to better his people And teach them in wisdom and science. And once when he feared that the spirit Of knowledge and research would languish. He heralded this proclamation Abroad through the homes of the people : " Listen, ye prophets and sages, Listen, ye deft-fingered workmen, And heed the command of Aretes : Whoever shall bring to the palace, A result of his toil and designing, The best geometrical figure, Him shall Aretes, the mighty, Reward with that which he most wishes. Hearken ! forget not the promise : Labor and cease not your toiling. " Now there dwelt in the palace A youth, a teller of stories, Zenopha, called sometimes chanter, Because of his beautiful fancies And strange, thrilling stories and fables. Zenopha, too, heard the king ' s promise. His heart beat wildly within him, For he thought, " If I could be ner, I should ask for the love of fair Osis, The hand of the beautiful princess. Aretes then could not refuse me What Osis ere this would have granted But for fear of the wrath of Aretes. " So Zenopha worked on in secret : He labored and ceased not his ing His heart helped his hands and he fashioned Of all designs the most perfect, The figure whose straight sides are many, The Polygon, perfect of figures. And when from the numberless drawings, The labors of sages and wise men, Was chosen the one of most beauty, It was found to belong to Zenopha ; To him was the Polygon bringing Success, the reward of his labor,— To the young man, the teller of stories. 148 Collegiate Organi3ations IDOIVC4011 Colors Old Gold and Brown FRANCIS CHURCH MAE MONTGOMERY ED.

Townsend, the Department of Military Science and Tactics was established at the University of Iowa. WAR DEPARTMENT, ADJUTANT GENERAL ' S OFFICE, WASHINGTON, August 26, 1874. Special Orders, No. 167 : 1. By direction of the President, and in accordance with Section 26 of the Act of July 28, 1866, 1st Lieutenant Alexander D. Schenck, 2d Artillery, is detailed as Professor of Military Science and Tactics at Iowa State Univer- sity, Iowa City, Iowa, and will report for duty accordingly. By order of the Secretary of War : E. D. Adjutant General. In accordance with this order 1st Lieutenant A. D. Schenck arrived in Iowa City and went on duty September 12, 1874. On October 13, he organized the S. U. I. Battalion under the name of " MilitaryBattalion of Iowa State University. " On October 14, he received from the Rock Island Arsenal 138 field B. L. Rifle-Muskets, Cadet Model ' 69, and all the necessary munitions of war for the equipment of 138 men. His first order specified very minutely the kind of uniform to be worn. The coat was to be a double-breasted frock, with a standing collar, and to be made of cadet gray material; the trousers were cadet gray with black stripes one inch wide down the outer seam; the cap was of chasseur pattern, with an S. U. I. badge in front. In addition to these there was to be a gray Kersey coat. This uniform was not, however, generally adopted, as at this time the wearing of a uniform was not compulsory. Drills were held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons during the Fall and Spring Term s. During the Winter Term 157 Military the Seniors had theoretical work once a week in Field tions and Out-post Duties. The Juniors had recitations twice a week in Infantry and Tactics. On March 11, 1875 a set of band instruments were received which consisted of two fifes, one bass drum and six snare drums. By acts of Congress July 28, 1866, and May 4, 187o, the Depart- ment was able on May 4. 1875, to procure two cannons and lish the Battery. Rea. Startstnan. Ely. Neal. Taylor. James H. Chester 1st. Lieutenant 3rd. Artillery U. S. A. arrived and took command of the Battalion January I, 1877. During the following spring he issued orders changing the uniforms to a straw hat, with a black ribbon; a jacket with a Navy collar and I. S. U. on the breast, and the insignia of rank on the collar. In his orders in the following fall, Sept. 15, 1877, the Battalion appeared as five companies of Infantry, one of them known as " The Rifles " , a bat- tery, and the music corps. 158 con col: Military George A. Thurston 1st Lieutenant, 3rd. Artillery being detailed to this post assumed his duties as commander in January, 1880. During his second year the S. U. I. Cornet Band was organized. It has continued to grow until the present time and is now the finest college band in the west. The colors were displayed from the dome of the Central ing during drill hour. On June 23, 188o, the Board of Regents passed the following resolution, which made it necessary for all members to procure uniforms: " Re solved, that, in the opinion of this Board, it would add to the efficiency of the military drill and education of the bers of the military companies of the University, for the members thereof to be dressed in uniform and would not, to any able extent, add to the expense of the dress of the students; and we recommend to the Faculty to urge this upon the students and to the members of the Battalion, as far as possible, to provide themselves with uniforms. " On September 12, 1883, Edward C. Knower, 1st. Lieutenant 3rd. Artillery, became the commander. He was the first to take charge of the post after the three year term was introduced, dating from September 12. In his monthly Government report of December 19, 1883, the membership of the Battalion is shown to be 152. Joseph Calif, 1st. Lieutenant 3rd. Artillery, took charge of the Department in September, 1886. G. W. Read, 1st. Lieutenant 5th. Cavalry, was the next mander, going on duty September 12, 1889. He was the first officer outside of the Artillery Department of army to be detailed here. Under his excellent management the Battalion received a new growth and became much more proficient in the art of war. On account of meritorious service he was retained four years. C. B. Voclges, 1st Lieutenant 1st Infantry U. S. A., took up the duties of Professor of Military Science and Tactics in June, 159 S fibititaQ 1893. He was the first Infantry officer to be detailed for this place. Through his faithfulness to duty, he won the merit of remaining four years. Through his excellent management and constancy of purpose, the Battalion won foremost place among the military schools of the west, as was shown by the words of praise in the inspecting officer ' s report of 1897. During his last year, he laid out a rifle range and organized a rifle team, which won third place in a contest with nine other mili- tary schools. Mr. Vogdes gave special attention to the theoretical instruction in this department. He published ' a book, " Notes on Minor Tac- tics " , which was designed especially for use in this University. In 1894 the regulation Infantry uniform of the U. S. A., with the addition of sergeants ' stripes to all of the trousers, was adopted. The present commander and Major, H. E. Ely, 2nd. Lieutenant 22nd U. S. Infantry, entered upon the duties of his office June 1st, 1897. Under his care the Battalion has increased from 233 last year to 246 at the present time, there being 17 commissioned officers and 218 enlisted men. Mr. Ely is a graduate of the Iowa City High School. Iowa City has been his home since 1882. Before entering the Military Academy he was a member of Co. I, 3rd. Regiment I. N. G. (old organization, at Iowa City). In March, 1886, Mr. Ely took the examination at Cedar ids with twenty-six competitors and obtained an appointment to West Point Military Academy. He entered the Academy June 14, 1887, and graduated June 12, 1891. He was then assigned to the 22nd Infantry, and joined his regiment at Fort Keogh, Mont., October 3o, 1891. In July, 1892, he was sent with the 14th., 4th., and loth. Regiments. Infantry, to quell labor riots in the pan handle of Idaho. During these disturbances, Shoshone county was kept under Martial Law and Mr. Ely took part in some quite active service. Later on he did some Indian fighting keeping the Northern Cheyenne Indians on their reservation. About this time he was charged with conducting recruits to Forts Keogh and Assiniboine from Columbus, Ohio. In June and July he was on duty at the Worlds ' Fair, in Chicago, as over guard in the Art Building. In August, 1893, he was ordered to Fort Pembnia, North Dakota. This is the coldest military post in the United States. He. remained here for nearly two years, with the exception of a short time spent at Fort Snelling, Minn., on court martial duty, at Department rifle competition at Fort Keogh, Montana, and Army rifle competition at Fort Sheridan, Ill., in 1894. The Post of Pembnia was partially destroyed by incendiary fire May, 1893, and it was then abandoned by the War Department. Mr. Ely was left in command of a detachment at the Post for some time to ship and sell the remaining Government property. After an extended mapping and hunting trip in the almost unknown upper Roseau river region, he joined his company at Fort Harrison, Montana, and acted as Post Adjutant and Quarter- master. After camping for some time with the 6th Cavalry in stone Park, Mr. Ely was ordered to Fort Cook, Omaha, Nebraska, August, 1896. From there he went on duty as Regimental Range Officer in camp on Winnebago Indian Agency, Nebraska, and served in this capacity for six weeks. From here he went into camp with the Nebraska National Guards at Lincoln, Nebraska, at their annual encampment. Mr. Ely ' s next order to leave his company was to report at Iowa City, Iowa, for college duty in the Iowa State University, June 1st, 1897. He arrived here during the spring of 1897, and during the summer acted as Adjutant of the Centennial Guard, at the Exposition in Nashville, Tenn. At the present time there are nine of our Faculty and Corps of Instructors who have held commissions in the Battalion. There 163 SIbititar 2 are sixteen, in all, who have taken the military work. One of them, Mr. Merritt, worked up to the rank of Major in the I. N. G. During its twenty-three years of existence the S. U. I. Battalion has given to the State Militia and other military organizations many strong men. At the present time there are fifteen missioned officers in the Iowa National Guard who received their military education here. They are, Lieutenant-Colonel W. rabee. Jr., on Governor ' s staff; R. P. Howell, Judge Advocate 2nd. Regiment; Major C. M. Robertson, Regiment Surgeon 2nd. ment; Captain J. W. Harriman( Assistant Surgeon), 2nd. ment; Captain Rev. F. E. Brush, Chaplain 2nd. Regiment; tains J. A. Hull, Company A, 3rd. Regiment; D. A. Emery, termaster 1st. Brigade; L. J. Rowell, Company F, 2nd, Regiment; E. C. Johnson, Company M, 2nd. Regiment; Chantland, Company G, 4th Regiment; C. S. Aldrich, Company H, 2nd. Regiment. First Lieutenants C. Sweinheart (Engineer), 2nd. Regiment; Gunsolus, Company F, 2nd Regiment; G. M. Johnson, Company M, 2nd. Regiment; W. P. Hyatt (Battalion Adjutant) 4th. Regiment. In addition to these, there are thirty-four ex and present bers of the Battalion who are serving in the ranks of the Iowa National Guards. Included in these are ex-Captain W. H. Clark, Sergeant Company C, 4th. Regiment; Captain J. R. Frailey, geant Company F, 2nd. Regiment; 2nd. Lieutenant L. J. Flynn, Sergeant Company A, 1st. Regiment; 2nd. Lieutenant E. E. Hobby, Corporal Company I, 2nd. Regiment, 1st. Lieutenant M. Johnson, Private Co. I, 2nd. Regiment; Sergeant Major C. W. Startsman, Private Co. I, 2nd. Regiment; 1st. Sergeant E. H. Yule, Private Company F, 2nd. Regiment; 1st. Sergeant A. J. Burt, Private Company K, 4th. Regiment.

MARGIE GILCHRIST ' S DREAM OF THE FRESHMAN BANOUET. 169 SCENE I.-TIME: Evening.—PLACE: S. Johnson Street. He was a Freshman, verdant, She was a Junior, fair; Her parents were absent, had left her In charge of a room-mate ' s care. Two friends were making a call that eve, And jolly the time went by, When all of a sudden the door-bell rang, And a Freshman entered, shy. The Junior received him with a smile, " Guter Abend, mein Herr " , said she. Her room-mate and friends a retreat had made, The dining-room held the three. SCENE II.—Dining Room. Between their laughter the three girls sat, Pondering o ' er and o ' er, As time went by and the parlor chat Grew interesting-, more and more. Laughter and whispers, nods and smiles, The plot was formed at last; A box of matches, the kitchen clock, For time was flying fast. Silently out the two girls sped, The third in the room must stay, Must keep up the laughter and the chat While the others were Silently back the two girls came, Bearing the clock along; The hands were pointed at nearly " twelve " , 170 The Freshman had stayed too long. Opening the door, they placed the Near by, while they stood around, Choking with laughter, yet silent, too, Awaiting the awful sound. One—two—three—the strokes began, Each one prolonged grew; The chat in the parlor lessened some, The meaning we all knew. Lo! when the twelfth had died away Another clock began; The Freshman stared, the Freshman glared, The Junior ' s smile was wan. The Freshman rose, the Junior rose, They rose as they were one; The Junior vowed amid her tears That mischief had been clone. " Good-night " , the verdant Freshman said, " Good-night, " the Junior fair; The door was closed upon his smile, She wore a vacant stare. " He ' s gone! He ' s gone! " the Junior " My room-mate Oh! Oh! Oh! The clock— ' Twas not so late as Those girls! What shall I do? " And weeping then, she laid her down In darkness all apart; For Freshman R- the Junior 0 Was breaking her small heart. The friends withdrew in calm content, Their mission was quite done; The room-mate rearranged the chairs, The clock ticked slowly on. 171 SIDE-WALKS 11 ITH BOYS. By Muth. Hash rove. V — Law.

The age to marry and to start out in life varies according to conditions. A young man should certainly not think of such a thing before the age of twenty-five, and not even then unless he feels that he can support a wife in com- fort. Before getting married a man should insure his life or make some provision by which his wife will not be left penniless should he die suddenly. Kingland.

Saved from terrible injuries, if not from death itself, a debt of gratitude that through life must remain cancelled is owed to Hal Reynolds, of Des Moines, by five young ladies of the university. Into the very faces, beneath the iron hoofs of the maddened steeds, as they dashed wildly up Dubuque street, Hal Reynolds hurled himself, and, grasping the terrified animals by the bridles, he clung to their heads until, weary and exhausted with the strain and labor, they stopped in their tracks. Mr. Reynolds is by no means a Hercules, but, athletic, young, strong, lithe and vigorous, he leaped out into the street and effected the above scribed rescue with a fearlessness that merits a muse ' s tributes, rather that the mere chronicling within the reportorial province. Duty, chivalry, courage spoke in clarion tones to the young man. A braver deed has never been formed in Iowa City, and the Athens of Iowa, long famous for its learning and letters, may henceforth bear, through this heroic act, the title of Iowa ' s Sparta, for the ancient soldier heroes, defying pitiless privation and peril, never more fearlessly launched themselves into the very face of Death.—Iowa City Republican.

Mrs. Rockwood, Judge. Ruth Paxson, Prosecuting Attorney. Beulah MacFarland, Attorney for Defendant. The defendant was charged with divulging- the secrets of the Frat, and with being seen on the street with George Hilsinger. Helen Carder, one of the chief witnesses, testified that although the defendant was supposedly of good character, she had theless been seen on the street with Hilsinger. When cross-exam- ined, this witness claimed that the reason she knew it was the defendant, was because defendant always wore white stockings. The attorney for the defendant moved to have this stricken out, for it was claimed that Miss Macomber did not wear white stock-. ings, but only had a hole in the heel of her stocking. Motion was also made that the court investigate to find out the truth of the last charge. Motion overruled. At this point there was general confusion, but finally order was restored, and the other witnesses examined. The testimony of Minnie Farrington gave great trouble, since this witness was dumb and required an interpreter. After all the testimony was in, very eloquent pleas were made by the attorneys. The defense showed very clearly that the defendant was of good character, but it could not he denied that she was acquainted with Mr. Hilsinger and wore white stockings. The jury, after being duly instructed, retired and returned in a short time. and amid profound silence rendered the decision: " We find the prisoner not guilty, but she wears white stockings. " The judge then sentenced the prisoner to pay the costs of the prosecution and join the Kappa Kappa Gamma for life. MARY LYTLE, Court Reporter. 176 IN MAYOR STEBBIN ' S COURT, M. L.

The history of a class, like the history of a country, is the narrative of the acts of the individual. The collegiate class starts with persons whose early training and primary education are about equal. Their acts as a class are marked by harmonious and united action. On the other hand the professional class, composed of individuals from vocations in life as different and as many as the number composing the class, with training gleaned from brushing against the business world, come together for the purpose of organization and unity of action. The majority of such a class have decided views and their schemes are definite and well formed. The successful law student, above all others, is a wire puller. He works with secrecy and his trail is hard to follow. Thus did every member of the Class of nine, meeting for the first time on the fifteenth day of September, eighteen hundred and ninety-seven, look about and size up his co- workers. Class organization was soon the theme of conversation and there was noticed a rallying about the leaders whose aspirations were for the office highest in the gift of the class. After several cessful attempts at organization, in which the only unity of action seemed to be, " Put the Seniors out, " we met at Close Hall, October twenty-ninth, and effected an organization. At this time the Seniors good naturedly came over to help us. It was noticed they had their fighting clothes on. They departed very unwillingly, sadder but wi ser men. The next it was observed the Seniors came out in new suits, and not a few had a limp in their walk, and a twinge of pain would cross their classic features when it was necessary to bend the hack, arm, or move the head. 191 Kennedy.

Leading the classes preceding in number, beauty and grace, we may say from observation that one at least is the leader of man o r men: for, standing at the head of the stairs, with a mien not unlike Joan of Arc of bygone days, this lady Junior gave orders to her followers—first to this one and then to that—to leap to the ing below and attack the Seniors from the rear. We may safely say, it was their presence and her majestic commands that won the day. Judge Ney, before leaving us to the tender mercies of Hayes, gave us an encomium that threw all thoughts of suicide from our minds. Contracts under his guidance was no easy matter. He usually put his hypothetical cases so tersely and near the dividing line that in despair we ‘.Yondered if the exceptions to the rules of contract were not greater in number than those under the general rules. But lo! on the most important branch of the law the Judge ' s words of encouragement were as follows: " I never had a class that has mastered so ell the elementary principles of contracts as the present one. " Our number is not as great as some classes in the past, but what we lack in numbers we make up in quality and enthusiasm. Nothing funny goes by default in our daily lectures. Several times in Prof. Hayes lectures on Code Pleading it could be noticed, as a wave of merriment passed over the class, a few of genus Senior would waken from their task of writing notes to indulge in a smile of bygone pleasure. Though we cannot look with prophetic eye into the future, yet glancing over the faces of the members of the Law Class of nine, we feel confident among our numbers will be found the judge, the jurist, the lawyer and counselor of the years to come. 13 193 Munger.

LT. I. is so fast coming to a close. Three years ago we entered the Freshman class with vivid nations and noble ambitions: in experiences we have surpassed the former, in our accomplishments we hope we are attaining the latter. Our time has not been without its special features of ment. We have witnessed the extinction of the " class scrap " ; we have noted the general improvement in students ' decorum; we have reached the period when it gives us pleasure to be introduced as a Medic; we have watched to completion the finest, most modern and best equipped hospital of the West; we have noted wonderful improvement in our laboratory facilities, indeed, improvements have been along every line, and well may the under-classmen be thankful that they have appeared on the scene at so opportune a time. As Seniors, we think we have a model class, physically, mentally, morally, and (with apologies to the psychologists) we will say musically strong. Our representatives, especially Captain Walker, have demonstrated our physical strength on the gridiron; our accomplishments in the class room have shown our mentality; our three ministers have heralded our morals; our double quartette and our two German singers have magnificently succeeded in their musical efforts. " And now ' tis known we have studied physic, through which secret art, we have made familiar to us, and to our aid, the blest infusions that dwell in vegetives, in metals, in stones; and can speak of the disturbances that nature works, and of her cures, which gives us more content in course of true delight than to be thirsty after tottering honor, or tie our treasure up in silken bags. to please the fool and death.

This year the same power called us Juniors. So far one hundred and twenty-nine attempts have been made to effect an organization, but every ballot results in a tie.

MEDICAL BUILDING. 214 Mebicat Class of 1900 O understand the history of a class, as of a nation, one must understand the individuals which go to make it up. This year we will try to depict each of our sixty-two worthy members, so that next year you may be able to appreciate the achievements of this class, so uniquely and fittingly called upon to usher this department into the beginning of a new century. Adams, the first on the roll, is likewise the first to attract atten- tion, as he pours forth melody from that mammoth buccal cavity_ especially when accompanied by Dido or Ickes, our ' ' beardless youth " , or Bowes, our long and limber man, who sings in such high notes, recites in lower ones, and will promptly entertain with still another kind. But Bachman, our fat man, and Anderson, our Bill Nye, are more conservative—so conservative that they have deprived their scalps of nourishment to feed their hair. Alford, however, is a man of business. He is not like Barker, mamma ' s bonny, blue-eyed boy, or Binford, who " just heard a good story, fellows " , nor Bright with his wondrous beard, but like Clark, bold, brave and ageous, quickly detects the presence of a professor, and acts accordingly. Brown, the student of ' ' the leaves of nature, " and Creel, whose " example before the class " is questioned since we honored him as president, only wish they could be like George, so sweet in course. . While DeetT is always glad to hear from paw " and know " that taters turn out good " , he never, as does Freeman, opens six tines a day that square envelope addressed by " Mary ' ' , nor puts his letters in the fire alarm box. Greenlee may talk with volubility, but it takes Gray to smooth his hair, don a high collar, and get " a pull. " Henderson, the ing Senior, like York and Hildreth, has ties that bind and answers to the call, " Papa " . 215 I tibebicat Cook, Cope-land, Corsant, Meis, suggestive names, like Payne, we " can conceive such a thing. " Lamerton, our worthy representative on the gridiron, can make a " bird " of a play, and so far has had no trouble in convincing the umpire it was a " foul. " Luehrsmann, more properly called " Lures-woman " , is a sharp contrast to Lenz, whose tongue travels so much faster than his. ideas, but above all be not dece ived by Morris, the debater, because the dimensions he gives, according to his own testimony, are not accurate. Neither should too much confidence be placed in one Tilden, known as hyperemia, hypertrophy, or S. S. Superintend. ent, who " missed the prosectorship by one little flunk " . Martin, Reiter, Rice; we ne ' er expect to see their like again. Roberts, the " two-step fiend and singer of feline sweetness, " like Torney, is not married but making good headway, and has a bright future before him. Stuart may demonstrate chemical action by hair balls, son may kick for aye, Weir " have reasons of his own " , but Van Gordon will continue to be authority on all things. Wagner is happy that he is apt in prescription writing; Williams rejoices that " beauty and brains go not together " ; Horsethief Smith that there is naught in a name; Wells that in littleness there is mightiness, while Hollenbeck takes ease of conscience in the thought, " I ' m not half as tough as I look. " Mrs. Neff may declare Patterson the prettiest boy in the class, and Newell assert, " You dum know it " , while Osborn yells, " He ' s married " , but Ostrom and his band play on. Of the many good qualities of Johnson, Augustine, Cooper and Sloan we cannot speak, but let us assure you unless Mevhaus ' s cold gets chronic the class of 1900 have all the essentials which indeed make history, and will take their place at the head of the Twentieth Century physicians, who curant Cito, tuto, et jucunde. 216 fibebicat Class of 1901 Vett Hi !

DR,GOTHERIEt ROMANCE OF THE WHITE CORPU5GLE5. 219 THE NEW UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, flibebicat Ebe flew lbospital splendid structure, mentioned in the ' 98 Hawkeye, is now being enjoyed by faculty, students, and patients. Though not entirely finished, at the opening of the Winter session, Miss Cottle, the Superintendent, and her five ant nurses moved in and informally opened one of the most ising hospitals west of Chicago. Our clinics have rapidly increased in size and improved in acter, and are beyond comparison with those held in the past. The hospital makes it possible for the Medical Department to offer a practical and thorough course in nursing. It will be the policy of those in charge to extend this work as fast as possible, and make Iowa City a center from which the physicians out the state may, at any time, secure the services of a competent and reliable trained nurse. We give below a short sketch of the Superintendent, who early demonstrated that the Board made no mistake in choosing her for the responsible position. 3 ennte 5. Cottle Miss Jennie S. Cottle was born at Mt. Vernon, Me., in 1863. She is of old Puritan stock, educated in her home schools and those of Augusta, Maine. Her career as a nurse began when she went to the Farrand Training School for Nurses, at Harper Hospital, Detroit, Mich. This was in 1886. She took the two years ' course there, graduating and soon after went to Boston, where she did private work. Miss Cottle has had a wide experience in her work, and besides has visited nearly all the large eastern hospitals, and some in Europe, as she has spent four months in Germany. 221 flbebicat Co lbw weetbeart t HE warmth of my devotion Can never measured be By clinical thermometer; Nor can the strong emotion I feel alone for thee.

Unto all the inhabitants of the earth who have been sick, who are sick. who will be sick; GREETING: Be it known unto thee this clay, that at the end of the third month, which is March, in the year Anno Domini one thousand eight hundred and nintv-nine, and of the doctrine of Homoeopathy the one hundred ninth, there will be graduated from the University of the State of Iowa, from the Homoeopathic Medical Department thereof, a company of physicians whose like has never before been known since the world began. And they shall have power over all manner of diseases to heal them, and to restore health to the invalid, and sight to the blind. The lame also shall they cause to walk without crutches, and the maimed will they render unconscious of their scars. - Now, whereas, in times past all medical men of S. U. I. have graduated after the short space of three years, and could not, fore, by any human or supernatural means, learn all pertaining to their art, THESE men will have delved, day and night, for four loin, weary years in the lore of those wise in the art of healing. which is recorded in myriad ponderous tomes devoted to medical advancement. Therefore will they be wise above all their fellows, and will be able to tell the causation of diseases and the different tions thereof, and they shall annihilate the same by the practical application of their law, Similia. Now that thou mavest know these men, and whom to call in thine extremity, I will here inscribe their names and some personal Their portraits also wilt thou see at the beginning of this Proclamation. 235 z 0 ra E1 0 • ibomoeopatbic And these men will have peculiar knowledge of the habitations, and of the domestic and social relations of the Bacillus, and of the Microbes and of the Bacteria, and will administer drugs which shall cause them to die, and their carcasses shall be ensepulchered by the phagocyte.

EDWARD C. ABBOTT.—Tall and slim, and smooth and well groomed. He hath great regard for the nurses, and his manner toward them is extremely gentle, so that they regard him with much favor. BIGELOW% PUTNAM BLACKSTONE.—Who weareth a broad grin and a number nine shoe and feareth not to tread upon the toes of men smaller than himself. His knowledge is not greater than that of other men, but his cepholic extremity is exceedingly hypertrophied. FRED E. CALKINS.—Also called Alkali Ike, for he haileth from the barren region of a desert called Nebraska. He raiseth the whiskers for the class, for he bath more cheek than all of them. 237 lbomoeopathic HARRY E. CARVER.—An agile athlete, who esteemeth physical activity above mental repose.

And her reward shall he great for she bath labored well. PEARL L. MARBLE.—Otherwise known as Calcaria Carl). He superintendeth the operative procedures at the hospital, and cheereth up the patients while their wounds are healing. Verily, he shall be victorious when he cometh to the field of Waterloo. FORDYCE H. McCABE. A man skilled in the art of pleasing conversation, so that even the Allopathic physicians seek his aid in surgical practice. He giveth cheerfully to all who ask. JOHN J.

Verily when the weight of his learning- is made manifest, the whole building; trembleth. CHARLES RUDDY UNKRICH. presideth with dignity over the class meetings when questions of grave financial import demand consideration. How-be-it there he some ers who say he hath an unseemly fondness for the game called whist. GLYNDON A. YOUNG.—Whose beaming countenance and cheerful voice will more refresh the sick than draughts of boneset tea. He applieth roller bandages without plait or wrinkle and useth the scalpel with amazing dexterity. These are the favored ones, to whom shall be given the respect and affection of all who know them.

FAWKES President FAY MCCLELLAND - - - Vice-President Miss IDA WEYMOUTH - Secretary and Treasurer CLINTON L. HAYES - - Historian N writing- the class history we recollect performing a ilar duty for last year ' s Hawkeye. We then, Junior like, had a good deal to say, but as considerable of it was not published we will take ing in this sketch and be brief. Again, we feel that last year we chronicled all the important events which took place during our Freshman and Junior years. In the Senior year nothing of special interest seems to take place, except at the close of the year. Again, the novelty which makes the life of a Junior or Freshman read like a romance has worn off and everything assumes a stern reality. The Freshman longs for the day when he will be counted among the Juniors. Likewise, the Junior looks forward to the time when his name will be on the Senior roll, while the Senior gazes out on the cold unfeeling world and goes out to battle with life ' s problems. The class of ' 98 enjoys the distinction of being the largest in the history of the department. If it is not the best, it is our fault. We surely have advantages that former classes knew not of. We are the first class to complete the entire course in the new building. Since our Freshman year important changes have been made in the 244 IDental faculty, and new chairs of instruction have been added to the course. We have had the privilege of listening to lectures on ous scientific subjects by men prominent in their line of work. In return for these advantages we have a zeal and ambition to give the public the best service that our knowle dge and skill enables us to give. We believe the sentiment of the class is voiced when we say that as a class we hope to occupy a position above the mediocre in the dental profession. There is ample room for advancement, and we propose to assist rather than retard that advancement. The standard of a profession is raised or lowered by its members. May each member of the class of ' 98 uphold the standard, and remember that the dentist who continues his study and research after his school clays is the one who becomes an honor to the profession and a benefactor of humanity. 245 McGarvey.

PERFECT history of the world would be a history of each individual that ever lived. A perfect class history would be a of each individ- ual member. The former would be an utter impossibility, and while the latter might be within accomplishment, it would hardly be desirable. The personal history of each of the members of the Junior Dental class is, no doubt, a good one. One thing they all have in common. Like the Indians, we know not whence they came, whE1e a few of those who were here as Freshmen, are like some of the historic tribes: it is not known whence they have gone. The analogy may be more real than it seems. When a stranger desires to visit, it is plainly evident that he is at a loss to know whether he is in 248 the IDean ' s if NAME. WHERE BORN. AGE.

The origin, of course, is in common with that of the rest of the human race. This origin, though, is a thing that has caused many a wise head to become weary. According to our professor in Physiology the human race resembles very much a hairy species of animal that spends most of its time in the tree-tops in tropical climates. The junior Dents are no exception to the race in eral, so the similarity is as well marked here as anywhere. One very essential feature is lacking, a fifth hand, or caudal appendage. Let origin and individual history be what it may, the history as a class began about the middle of September, A. D. 1896. lating and registering was an easy task, if one possessed the requi- site papers and sufficient coin. This accomplished an opening ture was next in order. Here it was that the fun began. Fun? Yes, it seemed to he (not for us. but for the other fellow). That other low was in the amphitheater, where he must have been at least a Ivliole hour before time. This.trouble he Ilad exercised, all for our special benefit. He wanted to be there to receive the Freshman as it behooves an upper classman. Our friends who had been here before us had not been lacking information concerning these warm-hearted receptions. They had told us how they had fairly danced with joy to find so much friendly feeling exhibited. On entering the Dental Building on that memorable afternoon, a most joyful sound greeted us from above. It was the result of the happy meeting of the Freshies with their elder brothers. With faint heart and tottering limbs we mustered enough courage to mount the two flights of stairs that led to the scene of merriment. Then, like a drowning man gasping for breath, we ventured to look in. Like a flash of lightning a hundred or more voices greeted -us with the name we bore all near— " Freshie " . A sight to behold! imagine, if von can, a hundred or more great big, grown up, jumping-jacks, seated on the lower rows of seats in a large amphitheater, and worked to their utmost capacity 249 S. U. I. DF1 ' ,NTAI, BITILDINQ. Eentat by some unseen mechanism. Then you have a true picture of what we saw when we first met the dignified(?) Juniors and Seniors. We received a storming invitation to " come in " . When fairly in our first inclination was to take a back seat. Those people,. how- ever. seemed not only to be possessed of great muscular activity and a voluminous voice, but also to occupy a great deal of space. The aisles were completely blockaded. While thus at a loss, not ing which way to turn, a gentle whisper seemed to go through the air, as do the gentle breezes on a stormy winter night. It was the earnest pleading, " Just shake your feet a little; just shake your feet. " Not seeing anything- else to do just then, we did that, and as if by magic the way was clear even to the topmost row of seats. grasped the opportunity none too soon. The way clos ed behind us, as did the Red Sea of old. On that back seat, each and every one of us, no doubt, made the solemn resolution to " get even " in some way; if not with the howling humanity in front of us, then to revenge ourselves on the next Freshman class. We were now initiated to the drudgeries as well as pleasures of a student ' s life. Not many clays passed ere we discovered that " the book of books " , as far as our medical career was concerned, was one with the rather majestic dimensions of about twelve hun- dred pages. On the title page was the name of an eminent lish anatomist. Even to this day, if one is in any way to judge by the time we associated with that book, it has been our most mate friend. Our first day in the Prosthetic Laboratory was a complete prise. We had entered the Dental profession with the idea that it had reached a stage of advancement far beyond anything fore attained. That afternoon we became rather inclined to think that a backward step had been taken, even far beyond the time when elephant ' s tusks were carved to serve the needs of man. Our conclusion was that the future masticatory apparatus would be carved from old hickory. We were afterwards told that the idea was to begin at the tom and work up. It no doubt was a good one, but we found it •, 251 I 1 Dental rather tough. Had we entered a wood carving establishment? On. and on we toiled, day- by day, till our labors were finally crowned with success—though a little a triumph in our eyes. Crowned heads are as subject to pitfalls as any one. Many weary hours are spent to avoid them. The golden rule is: " A tight fit and an even flow, You will always find to be a go. " Other attainments were equally well mastered, such as making, for instance. Yet those first plates were perfect horrors. They resembled more the mudpies of our boyhood than anything ever intended to enter the buccal cavity of a human being. Patient filing, cutting, scraping, rubbing, and polishing, produced from this unsightly compound mixture of plaster, rubber and teeth, a_ very fair specimen of dental architecture. Soon came the event of our introduction to the " Microscopic Man " : not that the man was microscopic, but he dealt with things. that oftentimes seemed extremely so. He set us to peeking through some black tubes with glasses in. them that made a of onion we were given to look at disclose to the eve all the ghost- ilness that an onion, when taken internally, sometimes exhibits to• the sense of smell. To look at onions seemed a queer beginning, yet when those tubes were applied to differentiate between cardiac muscle and non-striated muscle they proved to be very useful things after all. Our " Man of Functions " always had such wonderful stories to tell us. These stories were of such interesting nature that when called upon to repeat them we did so, even in the minutest detail. Sometimes little mistakes were made, such as giving 52.000 vulae to the square inch. However, such mistakes. were rather more slips of the tongue than of the mind. Then there was the " Man of Structure " . He was our special friend. This, no doubt, came from the fact that he had gone intimate partnership with out clear friend, the Englishman. These two together could—too often, to our bitter sorrow—find more bumps on a human crania than all phrenologists put together. 253 North Clinic Room:— IDe11taI In many ways—as such men always are—the " Medicine Man " was our favorite. At his summons to a special council, the braves, with wild and ringing warwhoops, would begin to gather about the council fire. The more aristocratic of the braves remained seated on their broncos, while the less fortunate squatted on the more humble places provided for them. When the mental strain would prove too great for some of the braves, and they seemed almost on the border of another land, a deep, refreshing draught from an Old Oaken Bucket which our great councilor possessed, seemed to give new life to them. After a quaff or two from its cious contents they looked as if they had just awakened from a happy dream. Many other-great and noble characters were met on our way, but here, as only too often, history perhaps omits the most deserving. We had hardly become familiar with the host of " ologies " that a Dental Course seems to have in superabundance, when the grand and noble science of " dogology " appeared upon the scene. Times in 1896 had the reputation of being hard and everything was said to be low in price. It may be that we are poor judges in such ters, but to us it did not seem to be true as regards the price of dead dogs. Political Economy teaches that price is governed by the law of supply and demand. In accordance with this the Medics must have very nearly exhausted the supply, as the price had just doubled when we began to buy. Should " dogology " he put upon the tariff schedule, it undoubtedly would be classed among the uries. As to the value of the science to the dentist, investigating minds may readily ascertain by questioning any member of the class. The novelty of the surroundings soon passed away and each one beg-an to apply himself to the more serious task that was before him. What task? Those quizzes, the delight of every student. Have you ever had a quiz master, like an expert lawyer, examine you on the Glands of Brunner, and then give you the fatherly reproof, that if you did not do better in the future it would 255 Eouth Clinic :Dental bring you sorrow in March? If not, try it once, and you will not ask such a question again. Thus time passed on, with its ups and clowns. The downs, only too often, were most easily numbered. Christmas, with its joys for old and young, came and went only too soon. Old Winter, in all his majesty, made but a very short visit. No wonder, when the fruits of a half year ' s labor were to be tested in one short month. that March seemed much longer than usual. Examinations did not mar the pleasures of our short spring vacation. Our sorrow was to find when we returned that most of our elder brothers had departed, and that it fell to us to open up the way for future dental classes, that we, as well as they, might receive a more liberal and extended course of instruction. One of the very first clays after our return, a robin perched in one of the old elm trees outside the Dental Building. A thrill of joy ran through us, for now we knew that Spring had come. As he sat there he began singing one of those old love songs that only a robin knows how to sing. As he sang he winked slyly towards a tennis court across the street. Why he winked or what he was singing only those know who know why a robin winks and are able to understand his songs. Had the Fall and Winter been a time of labor, Spring, as it should be, was, for us, a time of pleasure. We had just enough work to enjoy it and not enough to make it burdensome. istry. clinic, and laboratory tells the whole story. We finished Materia Mediu " , but that came in more as a side issue. In Chemistry there were some experts. Out of a solution sisting of NaC1+H20+ a coloring matter, they were able to extract half a dozen or more unknown elements, and not find one of the original. This was done all without the aid of the bottle ing the " excess " which was employed by some former dental class. In clinic there was not much chance to become noted. Too much time was spent—as perhaps there will be in our future office—on expected patients. 17 257 TDental Ten weeks soon passed, and with joyful hearts we left Iowa City. We had reason to rejoice, having completed the longest course of lectures of any dental class in this institution. The scorching rays of a mid-July sun may have been cooled somewhat by the word conditioned, but nevertheless, when school again opened, thirty-six of the old members were back. These, with four that had been out of school one year, one who had been out of school several years, and with one rescued from the realms of Homoeopathy constitute the present Junior class. Of the her that are not with us one has taken unto himself a wife and gone to a warmer clime, one is at St. Louis, one at Philadelphia, three at Chicago, and two at Keokuk. The whereabouts of the other members is not known. We have barely been launched as Juniors, so our experiences as such are limited. There is, of course, the dignified look, the wise answers in quiz, and learned discourses upon trivial subjects, by which you at once can tell all Juniors. Being older, we naturally put on a wise and thoughtful demeanor when in presence of the Freshman. We still meet our good friends, the Doctors, but look forward to the happy parting we hope to have with at least some of them when March ' s breezes begin to blow. As a class we mark the beginning of a new era in the Dental profession. We are one of the first classes in this country and the first in this institution to enter upon a nine months ' course of lectures. In the ' 98 Hawkeye, the Seniors boast that did the same thing in six months. They may hope to possess a similar " sheepskin " to the one we in time expect to get, but if that is all they have " they shall be weighed and found wanting. " The present age demands a man of deeds, not one of words. Do more, say less, applies as well to the dentist as to any one. The Junior Dental Class of ' 99, then, goes on record as marking the beginning of a new epoch in the history of dentistry in the State University of Iowa. 258 roentat Vcroonal (Mention MRS.

Wit,I., Historian HE Freshman class which came in in September, 1897, was the smallest class in point of III hers to matriculate in the Dental Department for a number of years. I, 7 4 7 On the opening clay, September fifteenth, there were but seventeen members enrolled, and the outlook for a large class was certainly rather unfavorable, but during the following ten days that number was swelled to its present dimensions—thirty-eight. Our class is the smallest, as we have said, but we hope b y honest and thorough work to prove it not the most insignificant. Of course, we were all " Freshmen " , and had to submit, as gracefully as possible, to the hooting of that sedate and seasoned body, the Juniors. And we, like other Freshmen, had to " dance " in the pit, to the delight and amusement of that self same body, the Juniors, and to our own unspeakable disgust, before we were allowed to take our seats. The opening clay over with, however, we found after a time that the juniors and Seniors really were fine fellows, our first impression to the contrary notwithstanding; and we have since found some of 260 1Dentat our best friends in the upper classes. But a man in the University finds himself surrounded by so many men of all professions, that he becomes really acquainted with very few outside his own class. Though our class is small, we have the largest per cent of ladies of any class in the professional departments of the University, there being five; and more earnest and refined young women it would be impossible to find in the whole University. -After becoming somewhat acquainted with each other, and finding out " where we were at " , the advisability of forming an organization of ourselves became apparent. Accordingly word was passed around one morning that a class meeting was to be held in Room 17, Dental Building-. Without knowing exactly what we were going- to do after we got there, we went, and one of the men took the stand as temporary chairman. Then followed the election of officers, and subsequently the adoption of a constitution and a yell. Our members all have more or less of love of society in their " make-up " , and with a desire to gratify, in a measure, that love of society, and gain at the same time more practical benefit, Mr. Eller and Mr. Gibford organized, or planned to organize, a very select little company, to be known as " Eller ' s Quiz Club " . But " the best laid schemes o ' mice and men gang aft a-gley " , and so it was with these two gentlemen. However, after being soinewhat remodeled by the ladies of the class, their plans finally ized, and now there flourishes a very pleasant and profi table " Quiz Club " . The Freshmen also possess quite an abundance of musical ity, having comparatively the strongest representation on the Glee and Mandolin Clubs of any class in the University, five of our ber being among the chosen few. We have not yet applied our talents toward athletics, but expect to show some of the erstwhile champions a " merry time " in the spring. 261 Willson. Read. McClelland, Bradley. Webb. Wells. James.

They realized that a successful professional man is not, in this age, merely the one who has taken his course and had his degree conferred on him, but the man who is educated in lines other than his profession. The one who is best qualified is the one who is conversant with the most subjects. Accordingly a meeting of the Senior and Junior classes was called, an organization effected, and the following officers elected: President—J. K. Rice. Vice President—J. J. Booth. Secretary and Treasurer—R. W. Hall. Program Committee—H. D. Keeler, J. H. Patton, L. B. Gray :and R. E. Morriss. In the choice of a name and motto the framers of the tion presented the name " Hosford Dental Society " . It was mously adopted, and the society was so called in honor of our worthy Dean, Wm. S. Hosford. The motto, " The best is none too good " , was accepted and the society was started forth. Good papers, debates and discussions have been presented every two weeks, and a profitable winter has been spent by both classes. 264 Ct 265 1 Ifacuttp CHARLES A. ScHAEEEER, A. M., PH. D., LI,.

The first meeting of the class is well remembered by all. It was with solemn step and squeaky shoes the Dean entered the lecture room on that eventful day, and raising- on high a Remington, informed us that " Upon this rock thou shalt build thy corner drug store " . Days and weeks rolled around; our verdancy vanished with that of the autumn leaves. At the first class election Carney, a prohibitionist from Port Wine, was elected President by a majority of one vote over a populist gentleman from Weedland. As a class we never " rushed " in the halls, scrapped or engaged in any unnecessary " boistrosities " . These things were said to be productive of tions not scheduled in the catalogue, and we would be wise or otherwise. " Peace. " Behold herein the essence of our religion. We would live in peace with all men, but woe betide the class that does not honor this truce. ' Twere better it had answered the summons of the old gentleman with the hour glass and long whiskers in its infancy. Thus has our history begun. Tell us, 0, Muse, where shall it end? As, we are told, life ' s evening will take its character from the clay which has preceded it, and education, in the more extensive sense of the word, comprehends every preparation made in our college days for the sequel of our lives, we truly thank the S. U. I. for the many advantages she has held and still holds out for us. 271 AA ICC CREAM SOW CHEKRT onosemq ROOT MER 0■71211 117,11%.1•31111111111• 1 ........... .111111.101 VIIMINIINI177.7.14•0.710.• 272 18- 273 1 Athletics Eltbletic ' Union Officers J.

Z. kWev has appeared on its horizon, is without doubt far superior in organization and in the number of members to the old Association. It may be true, as is claimed, that the rules have been to a slight extent unheeded. But nevertheless the Athletic Union is a recognized organization, while the old Athletic Association was a mere form. Our foot ball team during last fall was given good support, an,d, as a result the team comes out at the end of a season with $25 more than it started, and with every debt paid. That is a thing to be proud of. To pay a coach and all the necessary expenses from S. U. I. crowds is a hard task to perform and Mr. Sheuerman, the manager, should be heartily congratulated and thanked for his untiring energy. Now, as spring approaches, our base ball team and our track team should begin to think of taking a little preliminary training. They should be indulging in some such exercise as a short run of a mile or mile and a half. They should begin to take especial care of themselves. Our prospects for a good ball team are not as good as they were last year, perhaps. We have lost Maytum, Thomas, Brown and a few other hard hitters of last year. But there is good material in school, some new and some old, and there is certainly no reason why a winning team should not represent old S. U. I. on the mond next spring. On the track and field we should have a team unequaled as a whole team in the history of our school. We have sprinters in abundance, we have weight men and high jumpers; last, and best of all, we have long distance runners. Never have we had such men as Barber, Mantz and Brown in the school. For years, in fact, 273 Chase. Louis. Rose, Mgr. Blackmore. Iverson Yule. Holbrook. Hobbs, Capt. Barth. Barber. Sayres. Mortland, Etbleticz ever since we have competed in field clay games, Grinnell has won the long distance runs, the 440, 88o and mile. Now is our chance. Now we have the best long distance men we have ever had. " Nate " Barber is of known quality, and we all know we can depend on him to run to his limit. Brown has many times covered the mile in less than five minutes. This is a performance as a High School athlete. What may we expect of him when properly and carefully trained? Mantz proved his nerve and speed by defeating both Barber and Brown. Mantz is a good man to train and there is little doubt but he will make a good showing in the meets. In the hurdles we are weak and unless Sam Hobbs is here in the spring we must develop some entirely new men. But what must be done can he done. Every man who is a good runner should come clown in the spring and place himself in the hands of the trainer. This is the year to win the cup, and every student should help to the best of his ability. FOOT BALL. This is without a doubt the most popular branch of our sports. Everyone likes a foot ball game. The faculty go to show their patriotism; the students find an extra fifty cents in some corner of their pocket and every one attends the game. Next year we will have nearly all of our old men back. All but Myers and " Dad " Walker. These men will be greatly missed, for they have played a hard, conscientious game ever since they entered school. Both " Dad " and Myers are very popular, mainly because of their brilliant work. But new men are to be fott,nd. The men this year were nearly all " green " , as we say, and all had to start at the beginning and work up. When the team starts next year it will consist of men of experience; they will know the tricks of the trade, and thus a month and half of training will be saved. Next year we will defeat the neighboring schools as we did a year ago, and once more old gold will wave in triumph over Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. 277 athletics iRecorbs at %tate fielb Meet 19es Moines, Iowa, Map 2S, 1897 EVENT WINNER ScHooL RECORD 50 Yard Dash J.

Our players have secured a reputation as honest, conscientious men wherever they have appeared. They were gentlemen, every one of them, and they played the hardest kind of foot ball upon every occasion. What more can be asked of any team? Coach Wagenhurst came here shortly after school opened in September, and found awaiting him a team green in every principle of the game. But three men of the old team remained. The rest, although naturally good men, had to be taught the game as played according to Pennsylvania system. Wagenhurst began his work, and a mighty task it was. With an example such as the team under Bull had set his work was even harder. Everyone compared the work of the team of ' 97 with that of ' 96, and expected as much of the former in September as of the latter in November. This was certainly unjust. The men Bull took in charge had played together the year before, while Wagenhurst ' s men had never seen each other until last fall. But all that is past, and now we have only to look at our record as it appears. The only crushing defeat we sustained was that ministered to us by Kansas, and it is needless to say that able hard luck fell to our share in that game. At the end of the season at Nebraska we had a team which caused the jaws of the Nebraskans to drop. Never (lid a more surprised, chagrined crowd of players and rooters stand about a foot ball field than those men from Lincoln on last Thanksgiving clay. We were defeated: yes, 6-o. A nice score for the conquerors of Kansas to run up, when Kansas had defeated us 58-o. But it was not the retrogression of the Nebraska team that caused this difference. 284 Litbietice Nebraska could not believe it was the same team which played against Kansas. Captain Shadd said: " Iowa played a faster, harder game against us than did Kansas. " These words tell the tale. Iowa did not play her game at Kansas. It may seem to be giving one branch of athletics an advantage or a higher position than another to give personal mention of the participants, but it seems to us that the men who stood the falls and bruises which our foot ball players received cannot be praised too highly. And this, perhaps more than any other branch of athletics, spreads the fame of S. U. I. Therefore we give a short personal mention of the regular players: M. L. Eby, C., ' 99, did his first foot ball playing on the class team. He entered with the class of ' 98 and played a good game at guard during the falls of ' 94 and ' 95. Last year he was not in school. but this year he again appeared in the foot ball suit. It was not until near the middle of the term that he came out: first at end on the " Scrubs " and then in the same position on the first team. He played a hard, clean game, and at Council Bluffs cially distinguished himself, no gain of any consequence being made around his end. Geo. W. Egan, C.. ' oo, began to play foot ball at center on the " Scrub " in the fall of ' 96. This year he was tried at many positions on both " Scrubs " and Varsity, and was finally located at right tackle. He is a husky fellow and holds his place in good shape. One of his greatest points is his manner of encouraging his fellow players. His cries of encouragement can easily be heard in nois. He will be a good man for next year ' s team. R. D. Blackmore, M., ' cot, is without a doubt one of the best guards S. U. I. ever had. He played right guard last year and held the same place this year. His line bucks are next to ible, and when he is given the ball a gain is assured. We all know " Shed " , as he is commonly called by the other members of the team, and his good qualities are too well known to need comment. 285 RALPH DAVIS BLACKMOIE. JAMES WALKI;K Athletics H. Wright, M., ' OT, " the little center " , ' entered S. U. I. this fall and immediately stepped into his place at Center. He has been a brick wall to all center smashes this season, and next year the opposing- teams will have the pleasure of once more trying his mettle. He has played on the Ames team, Sioux City Athletic Association team, and Denver Athletic Association team during previous years, but now Ile is with us for three more years, and we all hope he will stay until he has finished his course. " Dad " Walker, M., ' 98, with this year finishes a course in icine and a two-year ' s course in foot ball. He was Captain of this year ' s team and gave great satisfaction in this capacity. His ing at guard was superb and we only hope that the man who takes his place may be as good a guard and as perfect a gentleman as Captain Walker. He was a favorite with the team and with his fellow students, and we are all sorry he is going to leave us. A. H. Blackmore, C., ' oo, is a man who, although he never played foot ball until this fall, developed into one of the strongest men on our team. He is as quick as a cat and always has his eve on the ball. He will be back next year and will try for his old place. It is not impossible he may improve his game still more, in which case there is little doubt he will be one of the best tackles in the west. W. E. Lamerton, M., ' oo, played his first year of foot ball this fall. He began at the first of the but decided that he could not spare the time from his studies, and (lid not play for some time afterwards. Then when it was found necessary to find an end he was induced to once more resume his position at end, where he finished the year and played a very good game. J. S. Griffith, C., ' oi, better known as " Red " , is one of the nerviest players S. U. I. ever saw. This is his first year in the Uni- versity, but he has had considerable experience in foot I all tactics while with the Iowa City High School team. He is a sure tackler and a speedy runner. He is always ready to leave his feet for one 287 SAM WARREN HOBBS. JOSEPH HENRY MEYERS. Etbletics of those long diving tackles which so please the spectators and it is seldom he makes the dive in vain. J. H. Myers, L., ' 98, is in all probability the most experienced member of the team. He has played foot ball for several years past and there are but few tricks Joe does not know. He is undoubtedly the best man in the interference we have seen for many years, and when he is given the ball it takes at least eleven men to down him. We are in hard luck that the law course is not three years or haps four, in order that we might be able to keep Myers on our team. 0. M. Deems, C., ' oo, is not really a green man at the game. He was captain of the Ottumwa High School team for three years and played several times on the " Scrubs " during the fall of ' 96. He is quick and speedy and is a hard man to down. He is a sure ground gainer whenever given the ball and half a chance. Deems runs low and is constantly on the watch for a hole in the line, but until a good chance appears he closely follows his interference. He makes up in headwork what he lacks in weight. . Sam V. Hobbs, M., ' 01, began his foot ball playing the first year he entered school. He has played on the ' Varsity team for four years, two years as half back and two years as full back. Hobbs is a cool, steady player, and always ready to take advantage of the least opportunity. He makes an ideal field captain. He has been elected captain for next year and there is little doubt he will make a good captain and will play his usual game. Together with Myers played a beautiful game in forming interference, and his line bucking is of a high order. We hope to see the name of S. W. Hobbs in our line up for three years more at least. 19 289 Athletics Che ' 994900 Cane 11Zusb N MAY 4, as one of the events of the Freshman-Sophomore field meet, eight stalwart men from each class lined up on either side of a stout hickory club, or " cane " , held by the two captains, and about ten feet from it, for a cane rush. At a signal from the referee, both sides rushed for the cane, and a mighty struggle ensued. At the end of five minutes time was called for the first half. Each class had eight hands on the cane. After an interval of about ten minutes, the second half. which lasted only three minutes, began. The rush was made as before, and the struggle waxed fiercer as the seconds passed. Some of the participants were presented to the spectators in amusing attitudes. But finally the whistle blew again, and when the referee announced that the Freshmen had seven and the Sophomores eight hands on the cane, the air resounded with cheers for ' 99. Some clays later the elated ' Sophs " appeared with handsome new canes, and woe to the Freshman who dared molest them or their well earned ornaments. 290 1)111=C:40.0.8.‘s literary The long summer vacation was fast approaching. They had spent many a pleasant afternoon together upon the flashing waters of the University river, and many an evening had they strolled homeward together thro ' the gathering twilight. For the last time they were nearing the old boat house, and for the last time they shot out from the bank and thro ' the deeper water into the old pathway. The eastern sky was darkening. But what mattered that? Had not this clay long been planned for, and were they not this day to thread the mazes of a narrow stream which flowed into the river several miles above? They passed idly over the well-known waters, now pausing a moment by an overhanging bank while she laughingly pulled a daisy from its long, nodding stem, now exchanging gay greetings with other boaters But at last they were away from the old haunts and out into the clear waters beyond the roaring clam. The sky was darker now, and, in the distance, there was a sound of rolling thunder. As they passed close to the bank a cat bird went scuttling thro ' the bushes. They were silent now, and the canoe was moving swiftly on. Soon the first heavy drops splashed into the water and, with a look of despair, he drew the paddle in. A ripple of merry laughter was his answer, as she pointed to a bridge a little distance on and said, " It ' s under there—and there ' s no one near to laugh at us; so what ' s the difference? " 292 literary " All right, " said he, as the boat shot on again. " And then we can take a look at those German lyrics of yours. " Out in a May shower, beneath a country bridge—and German lyrics! What more ideal situation could two romantic students desire? What wonder that her color came in soft waves? What wonder that his voice took on an unwonted tenderness as the tiful German words fell with the rain drops? All too soon the lesson was ended, all too soon the shower was over, and all too soon they were gliding homewards. As he left her at the gate she said, " And the day the rain spoiled our trip was the prettiest day of all. " Alas for fleeting dreams! Alas for faint-hearted youths! Next year she went up the river again. But with another man. in the Zpring In the spring the gentle flowers Coax the leaves and pretty flowers; And they kiss And caress Lovingly.

POLYGON. 0 0 0 0 0 0 O 293 literary Et tubp in CIO (13o10 great detective, Sherlo Combs, was alone in his private office. His appearance was that of a who is raised to the highest pitch of excitement by some tremendous care or anxiety. He paced restlessly back and forth, from time to time darting his keen gray eyes about the apartment. A bundle of papers, ing- to be subjected to a glance from those eyes, began to smoke as though the rays of the stm had been focused upon it. Sherlo Combs hastily averted his eyes in order to avoid a conflagration and continued striding nervously across the room. Little wonder that these symptoms of nervousness should be apparent! The great reputation of the champion manipulator of the deductive system of reasoning was at stake! That very ing he had announced through the metropolitan papers that he would forfeit one thousand dollars to the S. U. I. Athletic Associa- tion in case he should be unable to deduce the resident city and occupation of any one who should call at his office during the clay. It was now three o ' clock in the afternoon, and as vet no one had appeared to whom he might prove that he had not overestimated his ability. Suddenly the door of the apartment was opened, and in stepped one of the most beautiful young ladies that the great detective had ever seen. Tall and of graceful mien, with well nigh matchless charms of figure and of face, she presented to the eyes of the great detective a most exquisite type of feminine beauty. Hastily recovering himself from the astonishment that the sight of so much loveliness had produced, Sherlo Combs bowed low and inquired his visitor ' s pleasure. The young lady hesitated for a moment and a charming blush overspread her face. To the keen eyes of the detective she peared to think that her visit was a daring one, indeed. Finally she smiled sweetly and spoke, her voice quivering with a frightened and half-defiant ring: " I read your announcement in the paper this morning, Mr. Combs, and have come that I may be satisfied as to the great ability which you have claimed to possess. What can you tell me, now, about myself? " The fair speaker stood quite at ease, now, before the great tive: she was smiling, confident that in her he would find a problem hard to solve. She had read of the marvelous way in which Combs was able to deduce facts concerning an individual from his or her clothing, and she had taken great care, in consequence, that her 294 I Literary costume should furnish not the least data that might serve as a basis for deduction. The detective seemed to realize all that was passing in the mind of his visitor. He eyed her sharply. Then a broad smile came over his face. " Really, " he said, " this is too easy! Anyone could tell that you are a native of Iowa. They don ' t grow girls as beautiful as you are, in any other state! " The young lady blushed. Combs saw that he was right in his statement and chuckled to himself. " As to your resident city, " he continued. " It is easy to deduce from your labored and difficult breathing that you are accustomed therefore, that Iowa City numbered you among her to the purest of air, far different from that of this city. I should say, that you dwell in the ratified intellectual atmosphere of the sity town! " The young lady gave a violent start of astonishment as this bold assertion was made by the detective. " Wonderful! " she exclaimed. " And now but one thing remains to prove your supremacy in duction. What is my occupation? I shall expect you to be most specific in your answer. " The detective smiled. " I will attempt to comply with your desires, " he said. " But first I must have a specimen of your literary. style. You will excuse me for making- this request, " he added ogetically; " this is one of my chief helps in this kind of deduction. " The lovely visitor smiled consent and seated herself at the desk. For some time she sat motionless, lost in thought: then suddenly, as though seized with happy inspiration, she began to push the pencil rapidly across the paper. At last she finished her writing and handed it to the detective. Hurriedly he scanned the lines. Again he smiled. " Evidently a story about a picnic, " he muttered to himself. " just as I expected. The gladsome band of pleasure seekers their wav to the lovely picnic glade that nestles among the hills. They see the great red sun cast a last fond look over the dewy, delicious world, and sink to rest beyond the edge of the horizon. All vow that they have had a very pleasant time, and turn homeward with many expressions of regret, agreeing to return in the near future. " The detective paused and stood gazing at his visitor, his eyes gleaming with the light of triumph. " Without doubt. " he said, abruptly, " von are a member of the Freshman English class in the State University of Iowa, " In a moment the girl had fled. —Ivy LANE. 295 Literary There is tumult in the city in the bright September days, When the college doors are opened for the year; When the students are returning, For their college duties yearning And the Freshman enters first in awe and fear. Ah the Freshman! Verdant Freshman! In the warm September clays, Like a Spartan does he suffer and endure; How he bears the cuffs and raps Gotten in those a wful scraps, Where a " Soph " has made his eyesight quite obscure. And the Sophomores, what of them? In the second college year You have heard their failing named in Shakespeare ' s play; For in making " much ado About nothing " the year through, They remain as nothing till commencement clay. But when Juniors rise to view In the days of early fall, Then the class of fame and " Hawkeve " takes its place. ' Tis admitted through the school That, as a general rule The Juniors constitute all college grace: And the class of ' 99, Since they entered long ago, Have been blessed with fame and wisdom from the start. In athletics they surpass Every single other class, And in scholarship and morals stand apart. Seniors, grave and reverened Seniors, In the spring-time of the year In scholastic caps and gowns are seen; Dignified beyond degree, They approach life ' s restless sea, And they wear with all a sober, quiet mien. 296 Literary There are seasons in the year When the foot-ball rage is on, That professors frown and point across the way. may have an invitation To commit a recitation For the Dean—when he shall call you up some day. There is quiet in the city When the foot-ball team has gone Gone with prayers of hope and faith by loyal friends. There are tears and lamentations, Frowns and varied exclamations, When with the word " defeat " the message ends. There are games and there are games And when a team plays fair, As Northwestern or Grinnell, why you all know That S. U. I. must win, And the town at night is hot As that place in old theology below. There is pleasure in this life. There is work and there is strife, And the Freshman has the benefit of all; For they " rush " him and they " work " him, And before he knows his mind He ' s a " Frat " boy and belongs to Irving Hall. Loyalty must needs be part Of every life and every heart, Must have a sacred place, for bye and bye When the college days are past (And they do not always last), There will still be loving thoughts of S. U. I. As the leaves have faded, died. Fallen, drifted far and wide, So all our hopes may vanish quite away; But with faith in truth and right, Looking toward that higher light, We may still feel sure that we shall win the day. — " ERoDELPHIAN. " 297 literary CHARACTERS John Manley and Bob Jarvis, Roomates. Albert Bradway, " Al " ; J. Mclnery, " Mac " ; Billy Smith, " Mumps " , Friends of Bob and John. PLACE: Room at College of Bob and John. Bob, Al and Mac, in various negligee costumes, lounging about, smoking. AL.—Bob, how do you ever manage to concentrate your mind on the philosophy of Aristotle with that beautiful piece of ity smiling in front of you? MAC (going to table and taking a large photograph from it).—With that picture of John ' s girl before him, I ' ll wager he concentrates h is mind on the philosophy of the beautiful. Eh, Bob? BoB.—Philosophy of " Mumps " , you would better say. MAC.— " Mumps! " I should say. It ' s criminal to call a pretty girl like her, " Mumps! " Haven ' t you ever found out what her civilized name is, Bob? Bow—hope. John never calls her anything- else. He showed me some of her letters; dandy ones they were, too, and she always signs that name, " Mumps. " He has lots of books that she has given him, and on the fiy-leaf it ' s always " John, from Mumps. " They think an awful lot of each other. I guess. I ' ve never asked John what her other name is, and he never has volunteered any information on the subject. MAC (turning over picture and reading).— " Your own Mumps. " Well, I guess he ' s got ' em sure. But here, take it away from me; I ' m afraid I ' ll catch ' em, too. AL.—No danger of that, old fellow. If that is what makes John so wary of other girls I guess that you will never get ' em from him. Why, he won ' t look at a girl. When my sister was down at Christ- mas and I wanted him to take her to the " hop " , after I had honored the fellow by asking him to take her, what do you suppose that he said? (Mimicing.) " I don ' t feel that I could, old man; really, I must refuse; I ' m afraid I ' m not very fond of such things; I can ' t do it, you know. " Humph. I was pretty hot. I did ' nt think then of there being a girl in his case. Might have known, though, when a fellow won ' t jump at the chance of getting a pretty girl for the Junior prom there is something pretty serious the matter. That so, Bob? (slyly winking at Mac.) BoB (innocenth ).—Who? Me? I guess not. Parties and girls and such things aren ' t much of a " go " with me. I let ' em alone, 298 iI Isiterari2 and all I ask is that they favor me in the same way. The only time I lose my self-possession is when there is a self-possessed young lady around trying to make me " feel at ease. " MAC (who has been lost in thought, interrupting).—Lookee here, fellows! I ' ll bet a farm it aint his girl at all. I ' ve been thinking about it, and I believe she ' s his sister. BoB.—Ho! Ho! Sister? John ' s sister as pretty as that? Write ten pages to his sister every Sunday night? And get big, fat letters from her every Tuesday? Well, maybe so, but I doubt it. MAc.—That ' s so. But it stands to reason that it aint his sweet- heart, for lie wouldn ' t keep her picture right out here on the table where everybody can see it and talk about it and handle it. Espe- cially John, who is so confoundedly shy about members of the other sex. I tell you there aint many fellows that would have a picture like that in such a public place, with words like that on the back. BoB.—True enough. I doubt if there is another fellow where who could produce a picture of a girl with words like that on the back. I must confess, though, that it doesn ' t seem like John to have a girl. I never would take him for that kind. AL (sarcastically).—Maybe she ' s his great-aunt. She looks as if she might be twenty-five, and John ' s quite young, you know. MAC don ' t know, she might be AL.—Half-sister; you ' ve hit it; not quite a sister, but nearer than a sweetheart! MAC (still thoughtf ully).—No, I hardly think BoB.—She might be his cousin. AL. Or—favorite brother ' s wife. MAC (suddenly).—I have it! (lowering his voice). Look here, fellows, maybe she ' s his WIFE. AL (with a loud laugh).—J. McInerv, are you John ley married? Ho ho! Married to Mumps? That is tragic! MAc.—But hold on. There ' s reason in it. That would explain the letters and his steadiness, and that about your sister, Al, too. And then his mysterious runs out of town—and the writing on the picture BoB.--0, nonsense! But I say, if John has deceived me in that style he can pack up and go. AL.—I don ' t know but it does seem sort of reasonable, after all. John always was awfully silent about his personal affairs. Nobody knows anything about him, but I always laid that to his modest 299 literary nature. No wonder he never told her name— " Mumps Manley " ! (Enter Billy Smith.) BILLY.—Hello, here! Say, who ' s the girl with Jack Manley? Pretty early for commencement guests, I should think. MAC.—Is she here? BILLY.—Who? MAC, BOB and AL.—Mumps. BILLY.—What ' s got you all? I say jack Manley has a girl here. He ' s takin ' her around now. I tell you she ' s a beaut and no take. (Going to window.) There they are now. (Boys rush to window.) Aint she a cracker-jack, though? AL.—Whew! You bet! Her dress is, anyway. If she ' d turn around we could see her better. There! Sure enough, that ' s Mumps. BOB and Mac.—That ' s what it is! BILLY.—What ' s that you say? She ' s got no more mumps than you have. AL.—No; John ' s the one that has ' em. Look here, Billy (shows him the picture) ; now do you catch? BILLY.—O, I fall! Well, who is she? His girl or his sister? AL.—We haven ' t quite decided yet whether she is his girl, or his sister, or his great-aunt, or his sister-in-law, or his wife. BILLY.—Wife! Wouldn ' t that freeze you? Let ' s see (looks out of window). They ' re gone now (whirling about). You don ' t mean to say that Jack Manley is such a fool as that? By Jove! BoB.—Shut up, fellows; I hear John in the hall. Gosh! they ' re coming in! Let ' s get away. It would never do for them to find us here in our shirt-sleeves. Mac.—Don ' t go out, thy ' ll be sure to see us. We ' ve got to vanish in here; put us away, Bob, quick! BoB.—Well, Al, get into the closet and take these pants with you; Mac, get under the bed (kicking the cuspidor after him) ; Billy, behind this screen. Caesar! Where ' ll I go? (Enter John and Mumps.) often imagined how your room looked, John; you have told me so much about it. I a picture of it in my mind. What lots of photographs you have! Let me see if there are any girls among them. joHN.—No, Mumps, yours is the only girl ' s picture I have. MumPs.—Well, I was preparing to get very jealous. BOB (under his breath).—Sweetheart. 300 literaq (John and Mumps turn quickly about and discover Bob at the table in the corner earnestly studying.) Joux.—Well, if there isn ' t Bob! Did you speak to me, old man? B o B.—Yes—that i s—n 0—I MUMPS (sweetly).—Aren ' t you going to introduce me to your friend, John? BOB (aside).—Now for a revelation! JoHN.—Certainly; pardon me! This is Mr. Jarvis, Mumps, best fellow in the world. BOB (aside).—He ' ll not throw me off like that. (Aloud.) The name, please? Don ' t you know who I am? BoB.—Yes, 0 yes! I knew it all the time; but I—ah—I hope you ' ll excuse my appearance, Mrs. Manley. MUMPS. Certainly. I suppose you college men are all very busy just now. How beautiful your campus is (wandering about the room). What is this Why, it ' s a pipe! You don ' t smoke the horrid thing, do you? MAc (under bed).—Sister! JouN.—What did you say, Bob? BOB (very much confused, going toward them).—Perhaps I could assist her. MUMPS.—O, no! Thank you, I don ' t care to touch it. (Bob, returning to his seat at the table, gives a kick under the bed.) there ' s my picture on the floor, John. Is that all you care for me? Joni;.—Pshaw! How did that get there? I always keep it on the table in the corner. BOB (his head over book).—The wind blew it off a while ago. all right, Mr. Jarvis. I was only joking. I don ' t care, you know. BILLY (from screen).—Cousin! (Mumps and John turn toward screen.) rather uncanny in here John. I feel as if there is a sort of moving all about us. You don ' t have ghosts here, do you? This is the screen I gave you. A pretty thing, isn ' t it? (Going toward it.) BOB (quickly).—John, you ' d better not let your—let her see behind that screen. It wouldn ' t be best, you know. MUMP S (laughing).—Ha! ha! I wasn ' t going to look, Mr. Jarvis. I believe I know what kind of housekeepers men are. They always tuck everything unsightly under beds, behind screens and 301 literary places like that. Shall we go now, John? Its rather close in here. • (They move toward the door and when their backs are turned heads appear from bed, closet and screen.) JoHN-.—You are going to let me take you to the hop tonight, aren ' t you, Mumpsy clear? MUMPS.—O, yes, I guess so. Though I haven ' t danced since—let me see—not since I married (heads farther protruded, in breathless expectancy) your father. DISGUSTED CHoRus.—Step-mother. 3act 113nrton ' Ei Jack Burton was twenty-two, good looking, and had money. One spring he entered S. U. I. He had just left West Point because he as too fond of his own way. He found no amusement worth while at Iowa City, and so he had about concluded to be a " grind " , and see if hard study really was, as grinds believed, ant. But the T. N. E. ' s, who were not grinds, asked him to join them, and since they said their initiation took " nerve " , he sented. To be sure, the initiation after West Point hazing, might be dull, but it would at least break the monotony. Ethel Day was twenty and a Senior. She was a grind, a chested girl, whose dresses were as appalling as her knowledge. At least they had been appalling- until the summer before her Senior year, when Jack ' s mother had visited her village. Mrs. Burton was brilliant socially as well as intellectually, and when Ethel Day met her, Ethel Day formed a new conception of what a woman should be. A woman should have charm, and through it power. Health and good looks were essential, and so Ethel Day beg-an to ride horseback and use curling irons. Her brown hair was used to lying tight and straight on her head, and now its " wanton wreath- ings intricate " looked queer above the rather severe lines of her chin and mouth. But her eyes were warm. One day Burton saw her on horseback. Her elbows stuck out, her habit wrinkled, the bre eze had played havoc with her priate hair. Burton stared, and then to Cameron, a T. N. E., he said, indeli- cately, " She ' s a corker " . And Cameron told him her name. 302 Literary Ethel was no fool. She interpreted correctly his mentary look, and her rather sallow cheeks flushed uncomfortably. She had heard of " that swell Mr. Burton " , the ideal Mrs. Burton ' s son. She recognized him, and felt at the first glance that he knew what a woman should be. She no longer rode where he could see her. She subscribed for Life, studied Drock ' s epigrams, noted the dress and manners of the Gibson girl. She worked at thenics in the " gym " . Her dressmaker found her standard as to clothes improving and did better work for her. She had disliked dancing, dancing school, and the few parties of her life, but she remembered that Mrs. Burton made waltzing one of the exquisite details in the fine art of social intercourse, and now Ethel practiced before her mirror. The mental eagerness which had made her a subtle student of books now made her a student of attractiveness. So far, however, she knew her efforts were unsuccessful. Clearly, if Jack wanted to know books and Ethel wanted to know life, they could help each other. But somehow did not meet very soon. The T.. N. E. initiation began. The candidates were wearing white " stove-pipe " hats, dusting the " campus " trees with feather 303 Ziterary dusters, carrying advertisements, and generally making fools of themselves. Most of them were unmercifully " guyed " , but ton ' s quick wit gave his persecutors the worst of it, and they finally let him alone. So when he led up Clinton street a donkey labelled " Jack the 2nd " , the two of them wearing- three pairs of jack ' s white cluck trousers, no one cared orally to elaborate the point of the joke. But he saw Ethel Day smile at him, and Mr. John Burton was piqued. He could smile at the smiles of anyone whom he had not himself smiled at. The wild-haired, sharp-elbowed girl looked itively well today. " She has deuced intelligent, pretty eyes, " he thought. And then he lost his head and found nothing to say to a small boy who brayed at him, and wriggled his small hands in imitation of long ears. Cameron, the T. N. E. to whom Jack had made his remark about Miss Day, offered to bet Jack that he wouldn ' t get through the last thing in the initiation. Jack laughed and said he guessed he could stand it if the others could. " Each one does something different. " explained Cameron. " Has the thing I ' m to do been done? " asked Jack. " You ' re the first to try it on. I invented it myself. " " I don ' t see the justice of sticking me harder than Blud and Clark and Stanton. " " You ' ve more nerve. " " I ' ve more repugnance to playing the fool. Your initiations don ' t take nerve. " Cameron smiled with wicked amusement. " I ' ll bet you five you don ' t do the last act. " Jack ' s eyes snapped, and he said quietly, " I take the bet. " And Cameron, noting the snap of the eve, reflected to himself: " His dander ' s up and he ' ll do it. " Saturday evening was to close the initiation. Jack was instructed to obey Cameron ' s orders to the letter. Cameron ordered him to wait in his room till seven. At seven Cameron knocked. He was dressed as usual, sat down and rolled a cigarette. " Put on your dude clothes, " he said. Jack thought a bit while getting out his evening clothes, and then he remarked: " This is old, you know; it w as done at Harvard. " Cameron was somewhat taken back, and chose to preserve a 304 Literary dignified silence, in which he wondered whether Jack was ing " , or really guessed his plan. Jack finished dressing, put on his opera cloak and high hat, and said cheerfully " all ready " . The) walked to the gate of a new frame house, where Cameron took out. a card and gave it to Jack. On it was engraved—Mr. John Burton. " Where did you get my card? " said Jack. " No matter. Ring the bell, deliver the card, and say you must see Miss Ethel Day privately on a matter of extreme importance. When alone with her, kneel clown and say, ' Ethel, forgive me my iniquity. and be my wife. ' Say nothing but that until she consents or refuses. " Cameron turned to go. " I say, " said Jack, " did you have trouble getting her to do this? " " Nothing has been said to her. " " Do you realize, then, that it ' s rougher on her than me? " " You said she was a corker. " " What if I did? That ' s no reason for putting her in a position like this. ' ' " You ' ve received instructions. " " The way to do this thing is to warn the girl, ' ' said Jack emphatically. Cameron marched away. ' ' Well, ' ' thought Jack, " I can stand it if she can. And if she suffers that ' s Cameron ' s fault, not mine. And by Jove, it will be amusing to watch the effect on her. " So he rang the bell, delivered the card and message to the lady, and was ushered into a parlor. The woman went up stairs, returned saying Miss Day would be clown right away, and closed the folding doors of the neat, cheap room. Jack waited ten minutes, which seemed sixty. The more he pictured himself on his knees making- a bitter fool of himself, and the more he thought of the effect on her, the more he waxed wroth with Cameron. He grew more nervous each minute. If he could only be through it, apologize, and get out. At last her step on the stairs, the rustle of her dress, and she appeared. better looking than ever. Jack jumped up and stood facing her look of inquiry. For three horrible seconds there was silence. Jack was trying to kneel and couldn ' t. " I ' ll have to help him out. ' ' she thought, and began: " Mr. Burton. I believe? " No answer. " I met your mother last summer. Is it something about her— you wish to see me about? " 20 305 Literary Poor Jack looked ineffably silly and shook his head. " Why, what is it? Has anything- happened. I don ' t stand. " Naturally she began to get angry. Why didn ' t the man apologize for being there? Why didn ' t he explain? Was she dreaming? Jack ' s face was like a red and white intermittent con lig-ht. If only her name wasn ' t the first of that preposterous string of words! How could he say Ethel? " Well, Mr. Burton? " she said icily. Another wave of fierce crimson on Jack ' s face. " Perhaps I ' m not the Miss Day you wished to see? " A happy thought struck him. " Ethel? " he squeaked. " Yes, Ethel Day. Do you wish to see me? " Silence again. " Really, Mr. Burton, don ' t you think you ' d better explain? " " Forgive me, " gasped Jack, with all the sincerity that was in him. His facial expression suddenly appealed to her sense of humor, but before she could laugh a wave of real indignation swept over her. " I simply cannot find words to express what I think of this. " " My iniquity, " put in Jack. " I ' m glad you realize it, " she said, a little mollified; " but— " Again she gave him a chance to speak. No result. Then she made up her mind, and said: " Since there seems to be some mistake which you are unwilling to explain, I must bid you good evening, " and she turned towards the door. He shut his teeth and eyes and collapsed upon his knees. With grim determination he began: " And be my— " The fatal word stuck. He gave a gulp, his eves popped open, and he looked up at her as though he had a fish bone in his throat. " Is he sick? " she thought, " Is he crazy? " Then he grew angry at his lack of " nerve. " " Wife! " he shouted. The isolated word conveyed no meaning to her. He sprang up triumphantly and began: " Your— Great Scott! She must answer that infernal remark! " " What remark? " she asked dazedly. He simply wilted. Answer he must have, and he could say only one thing. With the indifference of despair and the calm of the 306 literary condemned, he said, " Ethel, forgive me my iniquity, and he my wife. " She looked like a wax figure. Human nature could endure no more, and Jack broke out " Confound the T. N. E. ' s! " He realized that he had failed to obey instructions. His bet was lost, but that was now a trifle. In another second intelligence and anger at once lit up her face, and she gathered herself to speak. He was ashamed to address her directly and said loudly, as to himself. " If she ' d only say, ' I will not, ' I could beg a thousand pardons and relieve her of my odious society. " " Mr. Burton, " she said, with a dignity that made her beautiful, - " I now understand that you came here deliberately to treat me with brutal disrepect. I shall not answer you simply because I do not wish to hear your explanations—they are insufficient. " Miss Ethel Da swept from that room like an angy goddess. But when the door of her own room closed behind her she threw herself down and wept bitter tears. She had been dreaming of that handsome fellow, the son of ideal woman; the man " who knew what a woman should be. " " The brute! " And he, his face hot with shame, put on his cloak and hat and left that house damning Rob Cameron and muttering, " She is superb. " Sunday morning Cameron had in his pocket five dollars and on his face a black eve. These he had received from Burton, who never became a T. N. E. Cameron now believes that on the whole it is better in this form of initiation " to warn the girl " . Che Vattle of ffresbp-Zo pb Of the many battles which have in the different ages seemingly ' changed the course of human events, one of the most important - and fiercely contested has not as vet secured a place in history. This great battle was fought in that period of discordant sounds known as the " age of the calamity howler " , or the " gold bugology triumphant " , which was at its greatest height of magnificent noise in the year of the Hegira, 1274. For years a feud of deadly malice had been growing between two parties of the brilliant scholars of our enlightened land. One •of the parties was known as the " Verdants " , the other as the 307 literary " Retroverts " . The first were conspicuous for what they did not know, the others for what they thought they knew. Of course, it is readily seen that between two so wide ly differing factions, ultimate strife would be inevitable, and so it proved with the " Verdants " and " Retroverts " . The immediate cause of the breaking out of the war was the attempt by the " Retroverts " to hang the image worshiped by the idolatrous " Verdants " . The decisive battle of the war was fought on the field of sity Campus, in a green glade, in the midst of grounds surrounding the temples of learning, a city known at that day at the " Athens of Iowa " . The approach of the " Retroverts " army was heralded by the most blood-curdling war whoops, which were immediately answered by the vengeful squeals of the enraged " Verdants " . The battle was joined. Soon the earth was drinking the briny tears of the wounded, while the air was filled with flying rags, buttons, hair, and various chemical combinations of words tending to give the atmosphere a blue tinge. All that could be seen of the combatants was a tossing sea of legs and arms, with an occasional glimpse of a head of foot-ball hair such as would have made an African chief die of envy. The king of the " Retroverts " occupied an impregnable hold, from which he directed the movements of his army. His po- sition was again and again stormed by the " Verdants " , who were each time driven off with great loss of cuticle and temper, until at last they brought the heavy artillery to bear on his works, and after a fey..- well directed charges of old egg-shot the position was carried. and, struck by a score of the bursting shells, King Knowetall, with a dull thud met the rising earth. With the fall of their king the " Retroverts " lost courage and fled from the rag-strewn field, leaving the " Verdants " puted victors of the battle of Freshy-Soph. OLD GOLD. 308 literary ' Linen Zoctors IDteagree It was eleven o ' clock on a cold, dark February night, and the college grounds were deserted, except by Jimmie, the old night watchman, who was slowly hobbling back to his little den to reward himself with a pipe and a nap for having taken so much unnecessary trouble. For he had mistaken some dark shadows around the ner of the Medical Building- for some of " thim pesky byes, " and had started in hot pursuit, shouting, " I know vez! I know vez! I know of vez, anyhow, an ' I ' ll till the Prisidint on vez! " only to find that he had been chasing a shadow. He was not likely to appear again for quite a while after such unwonted exertion, and the many shadows around the old buildings had it all to selves for some time. At last a boy appeared from the deep shadow in the corner of the fence and gave a low whistle. It was answered from the other side of the fence, and, in another minute, a head popped up. " How is it, Harry? ' it inquired. " All right, Cholly, " said the first in a whisper. " I fooled old Jimmie elegantly, and then hopped in at that window so he didn ' t see me, and my, but he was mad when he didn ' t find thing. He thinks it was just a shadow, and he ' s so mad that he won ' t pay attention to any more of them for a while, I ' ll bet :‘Toti. " " Can you get him over? " he added. " Why, I guess so: but I think I ' d better put him on a board to make him stiffen up a bit, I ' m so afraid he ' ll break- and you ' ll have to wait a minute till I get one. " With this Charlie disappeared again behind the fence, and Harry King- retired to his dark corner. But there was no danger of discovery, for Jimmie was nodding peacefully in his chair after he had berated himself soundly for being such an old woman as to take every noise and shadow for a midnight prowler and had resolved that he wouldn ' t go out again " fur nuthin ' " . A low call came from the other side of the fence, and King crept out of his concealment. " Is it all right? " said Charlie ' s muffled :voice. " Yes, " replied King: " ' hist ' her over. " A hoard appeared above the fence, and this was shoved over 309 literary the top for about two feet of its length, and then the end was ered so that King could reach it and haul it the rest of the way. Strapped to the board was the figure of a man dressed in the striped military trousers of Hampden College and a dark sweater and wearing on his head a soft felt hat, pulled ,down so far that, in the dim light, the face appeared only as a light streak. The boys handled their burden carefully, but not as if it were very heavy. When this was safely over, Charlie Campbell followed, vaulting over the high fence. Both boys stooped and began ening- the figure from the board. Suddenly King stood up. " I say, old fellow, we ' d better leave him on this stretcher,. I ' m thinkin ' . It ' ll be easier carrying him up those long stairs, to have him good and stiff. " Charlie stopped fastening the last strap, and considered. " Yes, " he said, slowly, " after we get him in the building once, but it ' ll be fully hard getting that big board in at that little window, but, then, anything is better than to break him " —and he began fastening- the straps again. Then they carried the board and its burden to one of the small basement windows of the main building-, and a skillful use tm• and o- of his knife, forced it open and climbed in. He turned to pull the board in after him. It was a pretty close fit, but, by dint of some twisting and scraping, it was worked through the narrow window, and Charlie crawled in after it. After this it was all plain sailing. Jimmie was far away, and the boys were alone in the great, dark building. They carried their load up three flights of stairs, then up a narrow staircase leading to the attic. They knew the way so well that they needed no light, and were afraid to use the little dark lantern they had brought with them until they got to the attic: then, with its aid, they found the narrow, winding that led to a trap-door in the roof. 310 titetary " NOW, I tell you, King, we can ' t get any board up that, and we ' ll save time by not trying. You go ahead and open the door, and I ' ll bring our friend. " Campbell unstrapped the figure and grasped it in his arms as one would carry a child. He stumbled up the stairway and squeezed through the little door which King held open, breathing a sigh of relief as lie set down his load upon the roof of the four-story ing, beside the low tower. It was called the tower, but the name was given it more from courtesy than desert, for it was large around and rather low, with two rows of windows, the first row of pretty good size and the second much smaller. The tower grew less in diameter, so it left a. wide ledge above each row of windows. The boys carried the figure up to the first ledge, and, opening one of the windows in the second row, put it in, leaving the dows open. This was on the side of the tower toward the back of the building, and there was no danger that anyone would see the window, for there was a thick grove behind the building, so that a person was either too near if Ile stood on this side the fence, or too far away if he went beyond the grove, to see the back of the tower distinctly. Their companion being disposed of, the two boys got down to the roof again and sat on the sides of the trap door, resting for a few minutes. " By Jove! It ' s uncanny! " exclaimed Harry. " I feel like a o-rave-robber. " " Well, " said Charlie, with a chuckle, " we did a good job at the old fellow, anyway. I tell you, when I was carrying him up the stairs just then, he felt uncomfortably life-like. I ' m afraid I ' ll feel like a murderer. Anyhow, if we ' ve so nearly fooled ourselves, I guess nobody ' ll suspect tomorrow. " " Now, see here, King, " he added, " let ' s see if we know just what we ' re going to do. We ' ve got to have it go off smooth, for if there ' s any hitch in the proceedings it ' ll likely spoil the whole thing—and, after we ' ve gone to all this bother, I want to do it up brown. " The boys sat talking in a low tone for some minutes. " Won ' t there be a jolly excitement? " said King-, bursting into a subdued " ha-ha " , and giving his companion a resounding thump on the shoulder as they rose to go. " It ' ll be awfully funny, and I ' d 311 literary better get my laughing done tonight, so I can keep a straight face then. " The boys went laughing down the stairs, and out of the building. They jumped easily over the fence and disappeared among the trees beyond, leaving the campus dark and deserted as before. The next day was Washington ' s Birthday, and Founder ' s Dav as well, and, according to a time-honored custom, the double versary was celebrated by an appropriate program on the campus, and then the flag was raised over the Central Building. It was a big, silk flag, pierced with many bullet holes, and was one of the treasured relics of the College, for under it the company of teers from Hampden had marched to the war. Many had fallen under it, but a few remained to bring it back victorious. It was never raised, as were other flags, by a rope, but some athletic young fellow was chosen to climb the tower on top of the high Central Building, and place the flag-staff there. Harry King was to form the ceremony this year. The morning was clear, but there was a sharp wind blowing, and much concern was expressed for the young man who was to climb the tower. There was really very little danger, for a steady-headed fellow: for the ledges were wide, and in the short distance above them to the round, flat top, there were little steps and projections, to which the climber could easily cling. The exercises of the day were just over, and King, who had stood holding the flag, went toward the Central Building and disappeared within the great door. The crowd turned their attention to the base of the tower, where he would come out through the little door. In a few minutes the top of the flag appeared, and then the boy stepped out upon the roof. He went around to the front of the tower, saluted the crowd below, then turned and stepped from ledge to ledge up to the round, flat top of the tower, and there placed the flag. It waved gloriously in the wind, and some one shouted: " Three cheers for the old may she wave! " and they were given vigorously, and repeated, and then they cheered the young fellow who had placed it there. He did look gallant and brave up so far above their heads, and the girls grew quite dizzy with a sympathetic thrill of fear at the distance below him. 312 literary He came down on the ba ckward side of the tower, and the people could not see him for a few seconds, but they watched breathlessly. Then the figure in the dark red sweater appeared on the second ledge, standing for a minute with arms hanging- at his side. and some one shouted a cheer again. But horrors! the form sways suddenly, and then falls backward, striking the roof below and bouncing off down back of the The crowd stood dazed for an instant; then an awful cry arose, and with one impulse the people i cashed around the building to where the boy must have fallen. There lay King, white and perfectly still. The President and some of the Professors made the crowd stand back and, carefully lifting the boy, they carried him to the nearest recitation room. Professor Norton put his hand to the boy ' s chest. " Well, his heart is still beating—though I don ' t see how it can be after such a fall—and there may be hope. Somebody must go for the Doctor, quick. Here, Will, you run; get the first one you come to. " Will Norton started at full speed, but some one had gone before him, and he met Dr. Lacey just com ing out of his office. The Doctor was a little, nervous man, with an immense opinion of the importance of his profession to mankind and a still greater opinion of his own importance to the profession. He had only one rival in ale little college town, and he was flattered, beyond measure, that he had been sent for instead of Dr. Hubbard. " Here, you carry this stethescope. We ' ll probably need it. Poor boy, an awful fall, but I expect we ' ll bring- him ' round all right. flighty little the Profession can ' t do in these days—and don ' t you drop it. We ' ll probably need it and here, you boy, bring along this case, will you? " And the pompous little man made his appearance at the college, breathless, with a regiment following him, bringing his instruments, only to find his rival already on the scene calmly examining the patient. There was nothing to be done but accept the situation as fully as possible, and the two worked in silence, feeling King ' s pulse, and listening to his heart, tapping him on the chest and examining- all his bones. 313 Literary At last, after much disagreement, they came to the conclusion that there must be some terrible internal injury and were ing the best course of action. Suddenly there was a shout from those standing outside, and in came a crowd of ragged youngsters, headed by Jimmie, who dragged by one leg a pair of trousers and a sweater attached to them. Behind him, a trail was marked by the straw, which was rapidly spilling out of the other leg of the trousers. The sweater still kept a resemblance to human form, but the head was gone. A grin overspread the old watchman ' s face as he presented this scarecrow figure to the ished company. " It ' s thim byes, ver honor. They ' re allus up to their thricks. But I know thim—I know wan, of thin. on yw ay. " Et Parting Through all the we ' ve been together, Dear one, from whom Fate bids me part.
