Of the men in mercantile and professional life owe some-
thing of their success to personal appearance. The leisure

is largely a matter of dress, and dress consists largely in the

Organization and Government
The University of Nebraska is a part of the public school system of the state, em-
bracing all the grades of the school system above the twelfth. The University crowns
the work begun in the lower and continued in the high school grades, adding larger
and richer opportunities for mental culture. lt opens its doors to all the sons and daugh-
ters of the state who are prepared to profit by the instruction it gives. The University
has no preparatory department. lft maintains, however, secondary schools in agricul-
ture, mechanic arts, and domestic science, wherein students cherishing these specialtiesor
not prepared for longer courses of study find opportunities for valuable practical train-
Pupils entering the University subject to conditions often, in preparing to pass
oi their conditions, attend classes in the Lincoln Academy for in the Lincoln High School.
The University of Nebraska was founded by an act of the Nebraska legislature
entitled "An act to establish the University of Nebraska," which took effect February
Upon the adoption of the new constitution in 1875, which recognized the Univer-
sity as already having corporate existence, some important changes were introduced.
Sec. IO of art. 8, entitled "Education," constitution of 1875, provides as follows:
S12cT1oN 10.-The general government of the University of Nebraska shall, under
direction of the legislature, be vested in a board of six regents, to be styled the Board
of Regents of the University of Nebraska, who shall be elected by the electors of the
state at large, and their terms of office, except those chosen at the nrst election as here-
inafter provided, shall be six years. Their duties and powers shall be prescribed by law,
and they shall receive no compensation, but may be reimbursed their actual expenses
incurred in the discharge of their duties.
In 1877, the first legislature convening after the adoption of the constitution of
1875 remodeled the act of 1869, making amendments to several sections thereof, con-
forming it to the new constitution and consolidating in one act the amendments made
to the law from 1867 to 1877. This amended and consolidated statute is the one giving
the-present organization to the University. lt forms chap. 87, compiled statutes of
' ii? il?
By an amendment passed in 1899 of the original act of 1869 a tax of one mill
per dollar upon the grand assessment roll of the state is now provided for the support
of the University. To be added to this are income from land leases and sales under
the land grant act of Congress of 1862, for the benent of the Industrial College, and
under the enabling act, reserving seventy-two sections of land for the State Universityg
interest on permanent fund investments, the money grant by the act of Congress, August,
1890, commonly known as the "Morrill Fund" act, and by the .-Xgricultural Experiment
Station act of 1887. The total annual aggregate of revenue from these several sources,
and including fees, is, for the biennium ending March 31, 1903, 3307500
By the act of Congress of july 2, 1862, the Industrial College of the University
became possessed of 90,000 acres of land, by the enabling act, admitting the state into
the Union, seventy-two sections of land were reserved for the endowment of the Univer-
sity, making a total of 136,080 acres of endowment lands. These lands were located
by a special commissioner and confirmed to the state. Provision is made by law for the
leasing of the lands, along with con1m0n school lands, by the state board of public lands
and buildings. The interest arising from leases and upon sale contracts is paid into the
temporary university fund of the state, with taxes and other moneys intended for cur-
rent use. The principal accruing from former sales is paid into the permanent endow-
ment fund, to be invested in securities, only the interest of which can be used. Under
an act of the legislature of 1897, no further sales of these lands can be made, but the
lands may be leased as before. Between 15,000 and 20,000 acres remain unsold.

ments in the Library hall. The State Museum, well stocked and growing, is drawn
upon by all departments for illustrative and instructional material. Important additions,
both by purchase and by donation, are made annually.
The geological collections consist chiefly of well systematized sets of minerals,
crystals, rocks, rock sections, ores, and fossils for class use. Some of these, which are
large and very complete, represent foreign as well as American material. Conspicuous
among the geological collections are the donations of Hon. Charles H. Morrill, of Lin-
coln, for many years a Regent of the University. This one collection, chiefly paleon-
tological, occupies most of the space on the main floor of the Museum. Many miscel-
laneous sets are collected and donated by citizens of the state.
Fresh water, marine, and land forms in general, with special collections of in-
sects, birds, reptiles, fishes, and certain mammals from the state and elsewhere, together
with numerous osteological and anatomical preparations for class use and for the in-
struction of the public, comprise the Zoological collection.
The Agricultural Museum is an important feature of the State' Museum. It now
comprises the forestry of the state as represented by timbers, shrubs, vines, and fores-
try photographs, the insects injurious and those beneficial to vegetation, the woods,
grains, grasses, and fruits of the state, and a complete soil collection with analyses of

tions. During the past biennium some 25,000 specimens have been added. The build-
ing stones, clays, bricks, and other samples representing the economic resources of the
state are exhibited in cases in the gallery of the state museum. The fossils are found
in the west half of the main geological laboratory.

ELLEN SMITH was born in Ashtabula county, Ohio, about
sixty-ive years ago. She graduated from Hillsdale College,
Michigan, in the classical course, and in 1877 was enrolled on the
faculty of the University of Nebraska as language instructor.
Later she was made principal of the preparatory school, Which
position she held until 1884, when she was appointed assistant
instructor in Latin. In 1885 she was made librarian and registrar.
In 1890 the regents relieved her of her library work, and she kept
the position of registrar until the close of last year, when she
resigned on account of failing health.
Beneath a stern exterior Miss Smith had a good heart hidden,
and her sympathetic kindness has endeared her to the hearts of
many students, especially young women. She leaves a host of
friends who mourn her loss. '
The Graduate School
Graduate work at the University of Nebraska was organized under the admin-
istration of Chancellor Manatt, in the years 1884-86. In the calendar for the first of
these, graduate instruction in certain departments was outlined and offered. In the cal-
endar for 1886, the conditions and requirements for the degree of master of arts,
mainly the same as those now in force, appear for the first time. This part of the
calendar was compiled from the report of a committee on graduate study, which was
appointed in 1885 and finished its sittings in the spring of 1886. Dr. Edgren was chair-
man of this committee, andicertain features of the report, particularly the per cent deh-
nitions of majors and minors, were contributions of his, and have been continued in
all revisions of the rules down to the present time.
The demand for graduate subjects was, for half a dozen years, but small and
confined to few departments. Students from the undergraduate colleges who needed fur-
ther work went generally elsewhere. There was little attention paid, except by the teach-
ers or departments concerned, to intending or inquiring candidates, and there was lit-
tle supervision of their work. Un the withdrawal of Dr. Edgren in 1891 to the new
University of Gothenburg, there was a palpable weakening of interest in the advanced
work of the University. Wfhen he returned, two years later, from the headship of an
institution devoted to graduate instruction, a more complete organization of our own
graduate work was looked for. This came in 1895, when the Graduate School was or-
ganized, and Dr. Edgren was placed over it as its Dean. The number of graduate
courses was greatly enlarged, and the enrolment rose to nearly a hundred and fifty
The opening of the Graduate School has been of inestimable benefit to Nebraska.
Many hundred students have been enabled to receive expert and specialistic training,
at small cost, who could not have borne the expense of study at Harvard, johns Hop-
kins, or Cornell. The sums required for tuition alone, at many of the eastern institu-
tions, quite suffice for the major cost of residence here. Une of the fruits of advanced
instruction at the University has been to put teachers holding second degrees into the
principal high schools of the state. It has not been possible to set up departments for
graduate instruction exclusively, and much of the work given, on the part of a some-
what overworked faculty, has been a labor of love. But the school is growing in favor,
both in Nebraska and outside, and, to judge from the inquiries of recent and intending
graduates, a large proportion of our students, look forward to the addition of at least a
year of finishing work. In the event of reducing the period of undergraduate study
from four years to three, as academic development in this country seems to require, the
usefulness of the Graduate School must be greatly enhanced.

Roy Allan McNoWn, A Y
Mac was born at Sutton some twenty-four years ago and received his high school
education at W'ymore. His home is now at Granite, Idaho. He was class presi-
dent in the first semester of his Sophomore year, is editor-in-chief of the SOM-
JJRERO and a member of the English Club. No one has ever heard of his win-
ning any military honors.
Julia Gregg Constancer
Vilas formerly a resident of Indiana, but came to Nebraska in ,QS and graduated
from the Lincoln High School with the class of '99. After a year's vacation, she
entered the University and began to make a name for herself as a student. Be-
cause of her recognized literary ability, President Davis appointed her associate
editor of the SOMBRERO. She does not speak of her future.
Ernest Howard Allen, fl? K '15 Viking
This youth was born at York, graduated at York, and lives at York. He was
president of our class in the first semester of our Freshman year, manager of the
junior football team, and business manager of the SOMBRERO. He has turned
his attention to the law, and now when he is not busy grafting, he spends his
spare time in working up cases.
S. Anclreson, fl? A 9
Paul is an importation from the wilderness about De Witt. His ambition in life
is to look like his big brother and some day to be as good at running and heart-
smashing as he is. He gave us the hunch that he never moved around in society
much in De Witt and that he now lives in Lincoln. Devotes his time to dissecting
cats with a view to becoming a dentist.
Beatrice Asenath Walling
ln very early infancy she showed her love of music by playing Yankee Doodle
on her high chair with a spoon. Since then she has done, nothing of note except
cut her teeth on a rubber doll and join the class of 1904. She did not want to
have her picture taken for the SOMDRERO, but finally concluded to do so that
she might avoid being roasted.
Coats, 2 X
He was born in the year 1875 at Grand Rapids, Michigan. F rom there he went
to the Chicago Y. M. C. A. Training School, where he graduated. He was
physical director for two years at Monmouth College. He held the same posi-
tion later in Honolulu. just now he is running the "Gym" side of the Lincoln
Y. M. C. A. Lake Geneva favored him with the pentathlon medal. His aim
is to be a missionary where every prospect pleases and only man is vile.

Malrnda Henrietta Leist
She was formerly a prominent citizen of Kansas City, but changed her habitation
in time to add one to the class of 799 of the Lincoln High School. She is study-
ing modern languages in hope that some one will take her on a trip to Europe.
If she can not make use of her knowledge in that manner, she may teach in the
public schools of the state.
Emma Shinbur, Pallaclian
Has always followed the example of the Father of His Country-she never told
a lie. That is the reason why she never jokes about anything. She is vice-
president of the Falladians, a member of the Y. XV. C. A., plays basketball on
the second team and on the junior team, and studies sometimes on the side.
She is from the high school at Gakland, Nebraska.
Ralph I. Mansfield, A GJ X
The above-named gentleman was placed on the list of consumers December 7,
1879. His home is at Wfisner, Nebraska, where he graduated from the high
school in 1898. Ralph is 2d Lieut., Co. B, and sings second tenor in the glee
club. VVhen interrogated as to his future occupation, he said he didn't know,
which probably means he will go back to the ranch.
This tall dark maid of twenty-one is a native of Greeley county, Nebraska, and
a graduate of the Omaha High School. Her aptitude for the exact sciences was
shown at the age of four, when she counted to twenty without making a mis-
take. She has been specializing in physics and mathematics, which subjects she
intends to teach when she graduates.
Was born at Red Cloud, Nebraska, .Ianuary 14, 1878, and graduated from the
high school there. His home is now in Qmaha. He has distinguished himself
in the English department of the University by writing short stories of great ex-
cellence, and was recently elected to membership in the English Club. His de-
sire is to become a famous American author.
Charles H. Bryan, K E
Was born in Fillmore, Pottawattamie county, Missouri, February 2, 1882.
VVhile still a young man he was seized with the idea that he had a calling and
immediately registered at the Missouri VVesleyan College. The attractions of Ne-
braska soon drew him away from an untimely fate, and now he is plugging away
at the science of mining engineering.
The adorable Dora joy says she is going to be a schoolmarm unless something
happens to turn her from her course. She is very fond of lawyers, particularly
those of Irish extraction, and we see no reason why she should enter the school-
room. She despises show, and time and time again has refused all honors that
professors and admiring classmates have attempted to thrust upon her.
Charles Wesley Melick, Union
He was born in the suburbs of Waverly, Nebraska, in '87 and graduated from
the B. 81 M. train department in '99. He now spanks butter at the state farm.
The scrubs claimed him in 'o3. Wliile a member of this organization he made a
touchdown on the 'Varsity and was taken along to Minnesota. From this he was
promoted to the Iunior football and baseball teams.
Rose Wirth, Delian
Miss Xfvlffll was made somewhat after the pattern of Dr. Ross, you can see her
coming some distance away. Sad to say, we haven't any interesting data regard-
ing this young woman's birth, but we will leave all this to the ingenious readers.
She spends most of her time in the history seminar room, presumably studying
history. Never having been within its sacred portals, we depend upon hearsay.
Mabelle Alice Roper
Likes all the boys she knows, but especially the pretty ones with curly brown
hair. She came from Parker QS. Dj High School to Lincoln to specialize in
history. It would tire the hand of her biographer to write all the good things
that might be said concerning her future, but she persists in being mournful and
says the world is gloomy.
Leonard A. Flansburg, A 0 X
His fond parents intended to bring him up on Mellin's Food, but they made a
mistake and fed him poultry powder instead, so that he has grown up lank and
lean and would not make a good advertisement for Mellin's Food. Mr. Flans-
burg was born at Alma in 1882, but his home is now in Lincoln, where he grad-
uated in IQOO.
Agnes Ronyon Herbert, Union
Born in 1881, somewhere. She graduated from the Omaha High School in the
class of IQOO and came to the University to join the Union Literary Society
and puzzle her teachers with strange questions and stranger answers. She is a
general scientific student. She says "her future intentions are undecided."
Wfonder who will decide them?
William F. I'Iol.mar1, 0? I' A
I was born March 6, 1883, on a blustery day, "by Grabs." I favored the Tobias
I-Iigh School with my presence for four years, "by Grabs." In the early days
of my University career I joined Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and have been a
bright and shining light in the same ever since, too, "by Grabs." VVhen you
can't find me anywhere else, I am generally reposing myself in the Y. M. C. A.
rooms, "by Grabs."

John Anton Kees, E X
Mr. Kees is a cornhusker born and bred. I-Ie comes from Beatrice and has never
been outside Nebraska. Two great events, worthy of remembrance in the pages
of history, have happened to him. The irst took place when he was a junior in
high school and took part in the interscholastic debate of the high schools of Ne-
braska. The second memorable event was his initiation into Sigma Chi.
This gentle maid will not disclose the date of her birth, but modestly confesses
that it is in the eighties. An Iowan by birth, she came to Nebraska and gradu-
ated from the Ewing I-Iigh School, and is now making U. of N. her alma mater.
I-Ier chief ambition is to get a Phi Beta Kappa, and her future life will be spent
in teaching the young idea how to shoot.

This little maid is of a mathematical turn of mind, having taken, whenap-
proached by our reporter, no more than five minutes to compute the date of her
birth, which she said was in '81, Lincoln has been her home for the past sixteen
years, but so far the fates have not disclosed to her what she is going to do in

Pawnee City has sent a mnnber of good students to the University, but none
who do her more credit than Bertha Kern. Miss Kern is strictly in her element
when she can be getting up something, the results of her labors varying from a
charivari on a newly married classmate to excursions to the penitentiary. She
is a member of the Y. XV. C. A.
ohn M. Paul
Notice the majestic swing of his figure as he walks across the campus. He is
noted especially as a windjammer, being a member of the celebrated Union Boys'
Debating Club and a student in the debating course under Professor Miller M.
Fogg. He is specializing in economics and will take his degree next year, unless
he gets married, in which case he must go to work. s
Katharine Grace Sterling
Katie does not look it, but she was born in 1881, December IS. South Dakota
is honored with her birth and high school education. Her modest and retiring
disposition prevents her from claiming any class honors besides membership on
the junior Prom. Committee. Some people think she is a flirt, but this is a sad
mistake, she has promised to be a sister to him because her heart is elsewhere.
La Duskie Salter
La Duskie first saw la duskie light of day in Harlan, Iowa, August 6, 1882. NVhen
she entered the University of Nebraska, on account of her tender years she did
not come under the notice ofthe public to any alarming extent until the first
semester of her junior year, when she was elected secretary of 'o4. She says she
is going to teach, but her friends know of a young Iowan who is waiting.
Louise Murray Palmer
Vlfhen and where this Junior was born nobody knows, and she thinks the S011-
BRERO Board has no right to ask her. The vigor with which she declines to an-
swer our questions leads us to believe that she is old enough to take care of her-
self. She modestly divulges the fact that she now resides in Red Oak, Iowa,
but even this is not for the public. So don't tell,
Grace Alice Evans
Grace began to chatter and coo twenty-two years ago and has kept it up ever
since. Her preliminary education was obtained in the high schools of Kenesaw,
Nebraska, and Vlfashington, D. C. She is found at all the university hops, and
her grace in dancing makes her a great favorite with the boys. Her friends
have no doubt as to her future occupation.
E. Leroy Thomas
E. Leroy was born at Oakland rnany years ago and took his preliminary educa-
tion at Bellevue College. His ho-me is now at Lyons. He is applying himself
strenuously in the engineering department and hopes some day to be able to do
things. VV e would -advise Mr. Thomas to come more regularly to class meeting
that he may get on to the way things are done in the world.
Margaret A. 1VIcEachron, Palladian
lfVas born in October, 1882, in Iowa. She graduated from the Omaha High
School in IQOO. In the University she is an active member of the Y. W. C. A. and
is known for her sweet disposition and sunny smile. She spends most of her
time studying Greek and Latin and expects to instruct the rising generation in
these languages--unless something happens to prevent.
Clark E. Bell, B 09 TI
This sweet-toned, clear-pitched Bell is the odspring of Liberty Bell and "An
Original Belle," both celebrated makers of history. He is a direct descendant of
the Bells of Cologne, a family famous in the archives' of German history. Witli
such illustrious ancestry, it is not surprising that our classmate is the pride of the
Betas and manager of the Varsity baseball team for IQO3. By self-confession,
his profession is writing life insurance.
Ida E. Schaefer
Had she been a boy, she might have gained military honors galore, as she hails
from a town called West Point, but, being a girl, she did not enter the military
department when she came here in '98 She is not widely known in the Uni-
, versity, but in her small circle of friends she is very popular. She is specializ-
ing in German.
Edith Craig, X Q
During her early years Miss Craig lived at Craig, Nebraska. The town soon
became too small to hold her, so she came to Lincoln and graduated from the
Lincoln High School in IQOO. The greatest event of her life took place when
she was a Senior in high school and won the D. A. R. medal by writing a his-
torical essay. She expects to astonish the world some day, but hasn't decided
just when or how.
Elizabeth Jeter, K A C9
"Sweets to the sweet." It is said that the chief reason that the science depart-
ment is able to totter along is because Miss Jeter favors it with the light of her
countenance about sixteen hours per week. But zoology isn't the only thing that
comes in for a share, there are others. For the cold, impartial facts of the case
we state with pride that she was born in Orleans, Indiana, j'uly,16, 1878.
Hazel Harriett Hartsough
Graduated from the Minden High School and appeared at the University just
in time to become affiliated with the Eleventh Hour Club. She is the one whom
the boys always describe as the "girl with the twinkling brown eyes." She left
us at the close of the first semester because she is going to marry a Minden
young man next june and can no longer fix her mind on her studies.
William Dwight Pierce
lfVilliam is making the name of Qmaha High School famous, for, since entering
the University, he has become laboratory instructor in bugology, has been a can-
didate for class president, and has had the doctor's degree conferred upon him
by the Daily Nebraskafz. He is a member of the SOMBRERO Board, of the Ne-
braska Academy of Sciences, and of the Nebraska Qrnithological Union. He
has made no entangling alliances, but has hopes. i
Orietta Zinser, Pallaclian
Orietta, the dark-eyed, came to us from the far East-from El Paso, Illinois.
Her coming was on the installment plan, or perhaps on a stop-off ticket. Any-
way, we find her attending the high school of Red Oak, Iowa, and coming on to
Lincoln only when it is time for her university course. She is now a pillar of
the Palladian Society and an "honorable mention" in the domestic science de-

he reentered the University and will now stay until he graduates.
Katherine Hurley, Union
Born in Indiana a long time ago. Like all progressive people, she came west,
and idled away her school days in Grand Island. She came to the University be-
cause she never thought of doing anything else. Miss Hurley is a quiet, indus-
trious inhabitant of the seminar room. Socially, she shines as a member of the
Union Literary Society. She is going to teach school.
Edward Price Tyner
A jayhawker by birth and a cornhusker by adoption. He came to celebrate Me-
morial Day and to decorate the world on May 30, 1882. He graduated from
the high school at Concordia, Kansas, in 1899, then changed hiscourse for the
better and came to Nebraska University. He has no plans for the future, except
to get a P. K. and to dodge flunks.
Miss Schwertley began her education at Missouri Valley, Iowa. She came to the
University with a plentiful store of knowledge acquired at the 'Woodbine Nor-
mal School in Iowa, and at the Iowa State Normal. ,Her main purpose in life,
to the accomplishment of which she devotes every effort, is to get an education.
Wfhen this is finished to her satisfaction, she expects to teach.
We do not know whether this is the Margery Dawe of ballad fame or not, but
anyway she is the Margery Dawe who graduated at Omaha in 1900. She is an
advanced Latin student and has spent much time and labor in the study of the
deliberative subjunctive, declaring that she feels perfectly at home with the sub-
ject and intends to continue it.
A stalwart son of the Vikings, born at Klippan, Sweden, in the spring of 1880.
He came from Emerson, Nebraska, and strolled into the campus in the fall of
1900, became a member of the Pershing Rifles, and made good grades in the En-
glish department. Mr. Peterson is a man of powerful build and keen intellect,
but he is still young and has not discovered his powers.
Van Zandt I '
Her parents brought her to Nebraska from Copperhill, New Jersey, because her
life was in danger from the mosquitoes. Miss Van Zandt's university career has
been one of unparalleled success, she has risen to the dizzy heights of fame as
president of the Y. VV. C. A. and president of the Iunior class. She claims to be
specializing in Latin, but evades inquiries as to her future. She takes music at
John Westover, K E
A man who makes girls timid by the flashes of his eye. He is a hero of the pig-
skin, a man terrib-le to behold in battle, and so powerful that the ranks of the
enemy give way like reeds before his I'-ICFCC onslaughts. The athletic board
claimed the honor of his name in 1900 and the cornhuskers called him their cap-
tain in 1902.
Cora M. Walker
From her ovvn statement, was born some time in the seventies in Plattsmouth,
Nebraska. She graduated from the high school of that city in 18.96 and since
1900 has been distinguishing herself in the University, especially in sciences.
She claims no honors, class, military, athletic, or otherwise. She hopes to find
some high school children on whom she can inflict her vast extent of knowledge.
Iohn Frederick Tobin, Palladian
VVas born in january, 1880, at Macomb, Illinois. After graduating from the Lin-
coln High School in IQOO, he entered the University, where he began to take a
prominent part in class affairs and athletics. Mr. Tobin is a member of the
and captain of the track team. I-Ie will study law.

Emma. G. Hurley, Union
This pride of her papais household was born in Indiana a long time ago-she
can't remember when-and now resides in Grand Island, Nebraska. I-Ier literary
land social ambitions find a good vent in the Union Literary Society, of which she
is a member. Like the majority of the brightest feminine products of the Uni-
versity, she expects to teach unless something else prevents.
E. Shorey I
'Was born April 21, 1882, in Seward, Nebraska. I-Ie honored his home town by
graduating from the high school there in 1900. At present he tills with credit
the high position of third sergeant in one of the companies. He expects to study
law some time in the future if he can avoid Hunks and reach the law school.
Rua Lee Sheppard
She modestly states the date of her birth as july 8, 1882, and the place Jackson-
ville, Illinois. She graduated from the high school at' St. Joseph, Missouri, and
has attended the University of Nebraska for the past four years. As to her
future occupation, she can not quite make up her mind. She is wild to wear a
diamond, but-"she doesn't know exactly what to doff
Herrick, B. R.
He gives january 13, 1871, as the date of his birth. IVho should know better
than he does? Far be it from us to doubt his honesty. Kearney High School
refers to him with pride, so he says. He aims to be a fancy farmer, that is, a
scientific agriculturist. You won't see Herrick planting his potatoes by the light
of the new moon.
Though she is mighty small, yet she is visible to the naked eye, more than one
person will confirm this statement. She was born in Illinois in 1880. The rest
of her life she spent in the Lincoln High School having a. general good time.
In the University she has been specializing in nothing and linds it very hard.
You might think she has an easy time, but she is on the SOMBRERO Board.
Winnie Bortis, Union
Appeared before the scenes April 2, 1882, at Glenville, Nebraska. She showed
her wisdom by leaving Peru Normal, after a year's work there, and entering the
University with the renowned class of 1904. IX-Iiss Bortis is quiet, a good student,
and has won many friends. As to her future, she has not looked farther ahead
than her graduation with the present Junior class.
Newell Elliott, Palladian
This brilliant boy was born August 27, 1882, and has been astonishing his fellow
mortals ever since. Beatrice High School is his alma mater, and proud it is of
the fact. His University honors are divided equally between the Palladian So-
ciety and the basket ball team. IV e are not prepared to say in which branch he
excels the most. Chief characteristic-''Great love he bore for all the Fair."
Like the classic goddess of old, I arose on the crest of the billows March 8, 1882,
beaming upon a world I was born to adorn. From the Lincoln High School I
proceeded to the University to distinguish myself. My moral nature was devel-
oped when I became a member ofthe Y. WV. C. A. My chief university honor
was the winning of the broad smile in the girls' athletic meet.

liancy to the University. He is very fond of girls, but one little brown-eyed
maid now has him taken. He does not know what his future occupation will

Florence Donelson, Union
Obtained her preliminary education at the Stromsburg High School and the State
Normal at Peru. She has taught school several years and once was a candidate
for the ofnce of county superintendent of Holt county, although she missed the
position by a small minority., The date of her birth she can not remember, as
she was .so young at the time that she neglected to put it in her note book.
Carlton Chapin Wilburn, A 9 X
This beautiful youth is the shining star of the Golden Age of Ashland. He
anticipates trouble entirely too much, since for the past six years he has been tak-
ing anti-fat as a prevention for obesity. He is a member of the SOMBRERO Board
and asked the special privilege of interviewing old maids, that he might make a
scientific study of their facial expression when he asked their age.
Mabel H. Stephen, K K T, Q 'I'
This jolly cherub opened her eyes on the world at Newark, Illinois, in 1881,
After graduating from the Omaha High School and taking a year at Vassar, she
decided to finish her education at a western university of acknowledged prestige,
so came to Lincoln. She swears that she was never canned from the library more
than once in a single month, and never for more than a month at a time.
Samuel Rees, fb A 413
Made his debut at Omaha some twenty years since. He graduated from the
Omaha High School in 1900. He has dedicated himself to the Y. M. C. A., is
a member of the ANNUAL board, and has the distinction of being the brightest
student of the junior law class. He had whooping cough at nine, measles at
thirteen, and intends completing his course with the mumps.
Eric O. Siecke, 2 A E
The golden rule of this youth is "anything to get out of drill." The faculty of
the Vlfisner High School testify to his ability to get out of work. Ever since
August 28, 1882, he has been intent on doing no-thing. He has, however, many
good points, he is an elegant dancer, has good taste in girls, and knows a good
brand of tobacco. A

Henrietta M. Rees
La Henriette is an Omaha girl of twenty-two, and graduated at Omaha with the
class of IQOO. She claims that she was nearer the head than the foot of her
class, but has never offered to prove it. Her brother Sam gave the SOMBRERO
man these pointers, but he was afraid to tell all he knew, because he said the fair
angel would pull his hair. Her future is doubtful.
Norton Ware, E A E '
Hails from the "Old Town on the River" where he was born in 1880, just two
days after All Fools' day-a very close margin. In his youth he showed a great
aptitude for engineering feats and often built railroads in the pea-patch while his
sister made mud pies for dinner. He is one of the men whom Hodgman never
rattled in Freshman mathematics.
Roy Bickford, Delian
Bick would have made a good man for president, but the girls would not vote for
him because they were afraid he might prove to be a boodler. Although com-
ing from the little town of Wellfleet, Bick is a cosmopolitan, and is as much at
home in the great city of Lincoln as he would be in his native hamlet. He is
vice-president of the Y. M. C. A.
Elizabeth Heacock, H B CIP
Began to grow at Falls City, Nebraska,'and never stopped until she came to Lin-
coln to attend the University. Since she has been here, her work has been so

growth. She poses as a society belle and expects some day to marry a duke or

Belongs to the Pershing Rifles, Medical Society, and Red Onion Club. He ar-

Harry N. Higgins
Reached the mature age of twenty years on the seventeenth of last March, and
is especially vain because he is one of the youngest members of the class. He
graduated from the Omaha High School in 1900 and came to the University
resolved to become a military man. That this ambition will probably be realized
is evident from the fact that he is already first lieutenant of Co. D.
Alex graduated from the Missouri Valley High School in IQOO, spent two years
at Grinnell, then decided to come to Nebraska to play end on the Junior football

He is of a very quiet, retiring disposition and it is very difficult for a girl to
engage him in conversation. Concerning' his future, he declines to say anything.
She was born at London, Nebraska, but we could not ascertain the date. Before
coming here she attended the State Normal School at Peru, which is her pres-
ent home. She is of such a quiet and reticent disposition that it is hard to find
out the facts concerning her, but we take it that she intends to teach school after

Was born in Wa1'1'e11, Illinois, November 7, 1882. He attended the Lincoln High
School for two years, but had to leave in order to cure the disease known as love,
contracted by gazing too much at a pair of hazel eyes. He now lives in Nor-
folk, where he graduated from the high school. He is taking the elective course
and never picks out any snaps.
Sprang into being at Cedar Rapids, from whence he drifted to the University,
where he has won honor for himself and his class in the interclass debates of
1902-3. It might also be mentioned that because of his great forensic ability,
Mr. Fogg has selected him as one of the men who will defend Nebraska in de-
bate against Colorado and Missouri. His future is a sealed book.
Mabel E. West
She did not graduate from any high school, but has been in the University long
enough to be a Junior now. She says the only distinction she has ever attained
is that she never attended a class meeting-which, as honors go, is questionable.
She will not tell her future occupation, but we think the diamond ring on the
third finger of her left hand can probably account for it.

manager, and literatus, was born in Pottawattamie county, Iowa, August 7, 1877.
He graduated at Hebron, Nebraska, with the class of '94, spent six years at court
reporting in Oklahoma, and entered the University in the fall of Igoo, Mr. Buck-
ner is one of the few married men of the University. He loves his wife next to
Began her career August 21, 1882, at Nebraska City, where in due time she
graduated from the high school and started to the University. She is too in-
dustrious to give any of her time to society or be a member of any organization.
She studies the ancient languages, and we take her word for it that she is going
to teach them in coming years.
Burdette Gibson Lewis, if K 'lf
Born at Jamestown, Pennsylvania, January 1, 1882, and came west in 1897. Be-
ing named after such illustrious men as Bob Burdette, Charles Dana Gibson, and
Lew Wlallace, it is no wonder that Burdette graduated from Qmaha High
School in three years and a half, and will graduate from the University in three
years. He is taking an elective course and expects to enter the law. Debating is
his strong suit.
This raven-haired lad comes from North Platte, where he spent a few of his youth-
ful years in teaching school. 'His proximity to Buifalo Bill has made him rather
wild and woolly, but he is rapidly becoming a peaceful American citizen. He was
ruthlessly torn from us by the force of circumstances at the beginning of the
second semester, but may be back next year.
Russell A. Moore, Palladian
Russell Moore rustled into the University in 1900, has been rustling for three
years, and expects to rustle more. His greatest pride is in the fact that he is a
Palladian, and he has a supreme contempt for any man who, would join a fra-
ternity. He is secretary of the Y. M. C. .-X. and will some time go to China to
shine in society there as a missionary.
Came to adorn this mundane sphere on july 1, 1883, in Fillmore county, Ne-
braska. ln 1899 she graduated from the high school at Geneva, where she now
lives. She is a member of the Palladian Literary Society and is taking the general
scientilic course. She insists that her plans for the future are for herself to know
and for the curious editors of the SOMBRERO to find out-later.
John W. Roberts, A 9 X
This quiet specimen of the genus homo was ushered into existence at Alma, Ne-
braska, july 4, 1884. His friends say he thought for several years that the cele-
bration which occurred on that day was in honor of his advent. He is a gradu-
ate of the Alma High School, having entered the University in the fall of JQQ.

is specializing in Latin and Greek and expects to teach these branches until called
to New York.
Charles N. Walton
Mr. Vlfalton is a football man of note, having played on the junior team and on
the scrub team. lfVherever any athletic event is taking place he is to be found.
He is very popular among the boys and good looking enough to be a favorite
with the girls. lVe do not know his plans for the future, but we wish him
N. A. Kemmish, Delian
Nate graduated from the Wfoodbine, lovva, Normal School, and after teaching
a year entered the University and enrolled himself with the illustrious 'class of
1904. Mr. Kemmish is a member of the Engineering Society and belongs to the
Delian Literary Society, but since he has been devoting himself exclusively to one
girl, hardly ever gets a Friday night off to attend society.
Eleanor Moliere Johnson
Miss johnson was turned loose from Lincoln High School three years ago and
since then has been making things jolly for her friends in the library. Since she
lives not in the past, and trusts not the future, she is radically averse to answer-
ing questions, and so we know little about her. lf you want to please her, ask
her to smile.
Raman Albert Miller
Escaped from the Ashland High School and the arms of his mother in 1900, and
began to grace the campus with his presence. Raman is the least bit modest and
refuses to dilate on his good qualities, or to enumerate the honors that he has re-
ceived in the University. I almost forgot to say that he was born at Ashland,
October 29, 1883.
Nell Athen i'
Nell is a native of lndiana, but at an early age moved to Hooper, Nebraska, for
her health, and remained there until she came to the University in 1900. The
brightness of her smile lights up the southeast corner of the library from early
morn till dewy eve. She is specializing in domestic science and is now engaged
in learning how to make pickles.
B. Nleelcer, X Q
Born at Pawnee in 1881, and graduated from the Pawnee High School. Miss
Meeker is specializing in physical education and has charge of that department
at Wfesleyan University. She dotes on picnics at Lincoln Park, where, if possi-
ble, she will eat all the strawberries that were intended for a party of ten. Her
future is carefully planned, but she declines to make any definite statements.
Kanzler, A Y
Jake is a lovely boy, but you wouldn't realize it from his picture. He was born
at Cornell, Nebraska, but moved to Kearney, where he learned the art of hoe-
ing turnips and digging potatoes. He is brimful of sparkling Dutch humor and
belongs to the Dutch company. He always preferred Force to Malta Vita as a
breakfast food. He wears a gold medal for individual drill.
Margaret Martin ,
She lives at Bancroft, Nebraska, and graduated from the high school there three
years ago, when quite young. Domestic science and chemistry are her hobbies,
and in the chem. lab. you can always see her surrounded by boys who are watch-
ing her experiment. She did not return at the beginning of the second semester,
and we miss the sunshine of her presence.
Was born at Qswego, Illinois, February 14, 1875. He has lived in Hastings,
this state, for a number of years and graduated from the high school of that city
in ISQ4. He is an active member of the Union Society and the Y. M. C. A. Mr.
Shumway served a year and a half with the Pirst Nebraska in the Philippines
and was wounded in the battle of Milo.
Mae Edholm, Delian
Blessed by nature with a sweet temperament and a charming countenance, she
wins hearts wherever she goes. She can make fudge, bake pies, and dances like
a fairy. In addition to her other accomplishments, she is one of Miss Barr's
inost promising assistants in "gym," although she wishes it plainly stated that
K'gym" is not her sole aim in life. Omaha is her home. -
Philip Harrison, A Y
Born August 8, 1880, at Nebraska City, and now resides at XVecping XVater.
He spent two years at Tabor College, Iowa, and entered the University last Sep-
tember as a junior. His accomplishments are many: he is a first-class artist, a
short distance runner, and one of the best bowlers in the Inter-Fraternity League.
Concerning his future he is reticent.
A little girl who came from Union, Nebraska, to Lincoln to see the wide, wide
world and listen to the wise words of the professors. All Mary's fellow students
have a great respect for her, they say she seems so far above them. I-Ier face al-
ways wears a sober, thoughtful expression, which is perhaps explained by the
fact that she is working for the teachers' certificate.
Elsie Piper s
Elsie Ford Piper spent her early youth among the willow sprouts of the Repub-
lican valley, but came to Lincoln later on and graduated with the class of 1900.
She tells her friends that she expects to get married. 'fliut mamma," she adds,
'tis afraid that I will never get a man, as I am so quiet. It is very hard for me
to talk to a young man." I
Edwin F. Myers
Came to Georgetown, Nebraska, in 1879, just in time to eat turkey at Thanks-
giving. I-Ie astonished his family by graduating from the high school in Broken
Bow with the class of 1900. In his University career he has distinguished him-
self in football by holding down the important position of left half both on the
scrub team and the class team.
This auburn-haired sprite took up the burden of life at Ashland, September 7,
1883. She was a member of the class of 1900 of the Ashland I-Iigh School.
Miss McCutchen is of a studious temperament and on days when there are no
basket ball games to be played can be found busily applying herself in the library.
She is a member of the Junior girls! and second University basket ball teams.
C. A. is a product of Nebraska soil and received a Nebraska education at the
Lincoln Academy. I-Ie cut off his mustache last fall, and to see him now one
would not understand why the girls admire him so much. He is too skinny for
the missionary business, and so he is going to be just a 'plain preacher. The
So111zR12Ro wishes him success.
Thomas Goodrich h
VV e don't want to make any startling statement, but this young man was born
October 9, 1878, at Table Rock, Nebraska, which was so named in the latter
part of the nineteenth century. It took him until 1896 to graduate from the high
school of the aforementioned locality. In the University he has been specializing
in paper routes. Two aims in life are his, to get married and to farm for a

Born at Scribner in 1879, and graduated from the high school there in '98, He
taught school a year and then came to the University to seek further knowledge.
He has never been honored except in the military department, where he had the
special privilege of appearing before the Commandant several times. He writes

Streeter, X 52
Miss Streeter began to spin poetry back in Pennsylvania some years ago. Wliile
she was still very young, her parents recognized her genius and brought her
west, where her great talent might have an opportunity to Hourish. Since she
has been in the University her path has been strewn with sunshine, roses, and
rhymes, but, in her own opinion, a nice, tall young man is better than them all.
Linn Murdoch Huntington, A T 9
Is at present busy on the sixty-seventh chapter of his famous book, "Breaks I
Made in College." VVhen he came here from the Grand Island High School,
the Alpha Taus saw that he was a boy who needed protection, and so they took
him in. He is secretary of the Pershing Rifles, a member of the Engineering So-
lciety, color sergeant of the battalion, and a member of the Y. M. C. A.

there would probably be daggers drawn on both sides.
Miss Dayton began to smile upon the world at Limerick, Illinois, and has contin-
ued to smile ever since. She graduated from the high school at Harlan, Ne-

she spends a part of her time drilling this knowledge into the heads of the youth-
ful inhabitants of Lincoln, and after next year will pass it all in the same way.
Charles A. Mohrman
He gives the date of his birth as February 8, 1882. Syracuse, Nebraska, a spark-
ling metropolis of the Middle West, boasts the memory of his early days. He
departed this town for the more intellectual center of Geneva, where he distin-
guished himself by his scintillating witticisms. Since coming to the University
he has haunted the armory. He is a member of the Pershing Rities and first
sergeant of Co. B.
Guy P. Greenwald, 5 A E
This guy first began making trouble at Salem, Nebraska, three days after the
glorious Fourth of 1882. Wfhen he was three years old his papa decided to take
him to Falls City, whence he emerged in naughty naught. He showed his keen-
ness by choosing the elective course in which he prospers. He obtained from
john Lawrence Gerig a reluctant consent for a passing mark in French.
William R. Bowes
Matriculated for a short course in this life on November 2, H1882 Since then
he has graduated from the Tekamah High School and reached the close of his
junior year in the University with the sole honor of chief bugler in the bat-
talion. lf he lives long enough he will be a lawyer, and he expects great honor
in that profession.

Ge neva Bullock, Pallaclian
To Lincoln she came May 31, 1881, for the sole purpose of devoting a life of
untiring energy and devotion to the cause of humanity and the Palladian Liter-
ary Society. "For the latter cause she has been educated at home, in the Lincoln
High School, and in the University. She holds that the best thing that can be
said about her is that she 'is a Palladian first, last, and all the time.
E. Whaley, Palladian
After graduating from the Csceola High School, she taught for several terms
and then came to the University, because, she avers, she wanted to. That the
assertion is true is proved by her faithful work as a student and by her loyalty
to her class. She played on the class basket ball team and now claims that her
highest ambition is to become librarian in U. of N.
Norris A. Haze, A T A
Born at Ponca, Nebraska, date unknown, and now lives at Norfolk. He was

his ankle, won three dollars' worth of soda water for taking fourth prize in tennis,
and is a member of the English Club.
Bernard Newton, Pallaclian
Bernard is one of our athletic men. He played on the junior football and basket
ball teams and was captain of the scrubs for the season of 1902. Qhio is his na-
tive land, but he now lives at Beaver City, Nebraska. Mr. Newton is silent when
asked about his military and class honors and declares that he wouldn't have a

of that subject. A

ls a product of Nebraska soil. He was born at Pierce twenty-three years ago
and is a graduate of the Pierce High School. To his credit it may be said that
he is so modest that he has never dabbled in class politics. He says Sadie is the
prettiest name he knows, and his friends do not wonder that he thinks so.
Helen Dora Reclington
Came to dispel Chicago gloom in February, 1882. She graduated from the Omaha
High School with the illustrious class of 1900. She is a member of the Y. W1 C.
A. and has distinguished herself in the University by her thorough work and
careful avoidance of snaps. Mathematics and English Literature are her pet sub-
jects and she expects to teach.
W Q Mouck
Mr. Mouck may know what he is specializing in, but we don't, which is more to
the point. He was born December 13, 1879, somewhere in the broad land of
America. Creston, Iowa, claims the honor of his high school career. The Y.
M. C. A. occasionally sees his smiling countenance, enough to be reminded of the
fact that he is a member. He has the very laudable intention of becoming famous
immediately after graduation.
First opened her eyes upon the responsibilities of life at Toledo, Ohio, in 1883.
Omaha High School sent her to the University that her life might be an example
to the young women of the state. She is modest and retiring and is a great
favorite with the girls. Her ambition is to lead some of the Nebraska youth
along the flowery paths of knowledge.
Charles T.ABorg, Palladian
Born near Peoria, Illinois, May 2, 1878. He graduated from the Omaha High
School, but his home is at Looking Glass, Nebraska. He was a member of Co.
G, Third Nebraska Volunteers, in the late War with Spain. Mr. Borg is a mem-
ber of the Falladian Literary Society, a Y. M. C. A. man, and class treasurer, as
well as star center of the victorious Varsity football team of 1902.
This fair damsel does not remember dates, but can not recall the Civil war. Like

Alfred S. Redfern
Is a graduate of the State Normal School and entered the University as a Jun-
ior. He is so quiet that he scarcely answers when spoken to. He has winning
black eyes and once had a mustache, but shaved it off soon after his arrival here
because he didn't want the girls to think he looked old. Mr. Redfern intends
to be a pedagogue.
Alice Unthank 1 G
This young' lady began to adorn the earth with her beauty and wisdom at Econ-
omy, Indiana, and graduated from a high school in the same state. Miss Un-
thank is a type of the tall stately maiden who carries herself with an air of dig-
nity which plainly says, "Touch me, if you dare." Her friends know, however,
that it is only assumed.
Parker, 'P I' A
He was once the pride of Wfilsonville High School. In hushed silence they still
speak of him. September 22, 1883, was rendered famous by his birth. He has
reached the lofty pinnacle which a junior holds, by the aid of the motto, "If
you must work, work everybody." Diligently and persistently has he followed
this course of action.
Margaret Edna Spears
This sprightly little lady was born at Morrison, Illinois, not so many years ago-
,twenty-two, to be definite. She is probably bad medicine, as we can get no one
to take the responsibility of writing up her history. Nothing is known of her
future. As the Chinese say in well-wishing, "May her shadow never grow less."

Harriet blew up from Bleeding Kansas several years ago and lit at Qmaha,

he appears soon she will take to school teaching and give up hope.
Harriett Louise Braylon
Began her aggressive career in Iowa in 1883, just missing April I by one day.
VVhile in the University she has had the honor of being the protector of 'o4's
finances for one semester, and has been a faithful and indefatigable worker on
the SOMBRERO Board. She does not belong to anything or anybody. She is by
nature a ruler of kings. But, after all, she is only going to teach kindergarten.

so it came about that she became a star in the basket b-all world. She is also
athletic in various other ways, being the only one who could tie the agile Miss
Bryan on the running high jump.

ning a ranch next summer and would like an amiable housekeeper. He registers
with the civil engineers, but it is hard 'to tell what he will be.
Minnie Myrtel Clements V P I L
Miss Clements has always lived in Lincoln. She went to the Lincoln High
School, but stopped when she grew tired of it. Then, when she got tired of
resting, she came to the University. llfe are told that she was disappointed in
a love affair at the tender age of sixteen, but that she has recovered is evident
from the ruby she wears. It is on her middle finger, because the Cincinnati
man wasn't sure about the size.
Arleigh Green, A Y
Is the pride of the community of Benedict. He came to the University from the
Fremont 'Normal School and is now assistant in the engineering department and
a member of the Engineering Society. The Chancellor didnit want jim to
drill this year, but after a great deal of persuasion on the part of jim, the Chan-
cellor yielded and jim shouldered a gun.
I. C. Baldwin, Union
Smiled at the snowflakes in january of '83 in Clay county, Kansas, and lived
amid the tall grass of that state until his father took him to the wilds of sunny
Georgia. Falls City had the honor of graduating him. He has always been a
prominent factor in class politics and was elected vice-president of the class in
his Sophomore year.
R. E. Noyes, Union g
Says he came to the University principally to learn how to keep the school chil-
dren from getting the best of him. As a military man, he has gained the rank
of lieutenant, and in athletics he has made himself famous as a member of the
junior basket ball team. Mr. Noyes came from Fremont High School to the
University in ,98.
George F. Brown
George is a sprightly boy of twenty-three who graduated three years ago at Ge-
neva. He has such a large figure and such a magnificent military bearing that
he has got to be first sergeant of Co. C. Mr. Brown is a distant relative of old
john Brown, though he is not at all stuck up because of the relationship. His
future is hard to predict, as he maypossibly get married.
Robert A. Harrison
NV e thought he was a Freshman, but through someb'ody's awkwardness his pic-
ture appears with the juniors, so we shall have to write his history. There is
not much to write, except that he was born in Adair county, Iowa, graduated
from the Wfoodbine Normal School, and intends to be a preacher. He expects
to be a poet on the side, though he doesn't want it mentioned.
George Elmer Farnsworth, Delian ,

he was not responsible. As soon as he was able to travel, he went to Nebraska,
locating at Liberty, where he has since resided. He is a hard worker and re-
garded as one of the strongest students in the University. Mr. Vasey expects
to follow teaching as a life vocation.
Edward M. Briggs, Palladian
One of nature's own noblemen, from the physical standpoint, at least. He was
born at New Windsor, Illinois, and graduated from the Red Oak, Iowa, High
School. Ed played substitute on the first team last season. VVhen he went to
Minnesota, his wife said to him, "Ed, if you dare to come home killed, I'l1
never let you go again." I

His home -at present is in Norfolk, Nebraska, where he graduated from the
high school. He belongs to neither fraternity, literary society, or debating club,
but is applying himself exclusively to the study of engineering, in which he
expects to become famous.
Kenneth P. MacDonald
The canny Scot floated into this gloomy world November 16, 1881, for the pur-
pose of decreasing its many burdens. His success is assured, for he has been a
shining light ever since. He started in Carleton, Thayer county, Nebraska, but
finally landed in Lincoln, where he graduated from the high school in 1899 and
then entered the University. His chief beauties are his hair and his name.
Thomas E. lohnson
Thomas E. Johnson, a true son of the bold Norsemen, first lit up the earth
with the radiance of his smile May 2, 1876, at Hoffland, among the fiords of
Norway. At an early age he migrated to the "land of the free and the home
of the bravei' and in due time graduated from the normal school at Woodbine,
Iowa. He has won honor in the University as a member of the junior debating

The Triumphs of 1904
In the fall of 1900, the class of 1904 came upon the campus, as green a lot, I
suppose, as any class that ever entered the University. However, it is no disgrace to
be green when one is young, it is only a disgrace to stay green. W' e have shown our
superiority over the other classes by our great development morally, physically, and so-
cially. The other classes which have come within our notice have never got away from
the verdancy of their Freshman year, while we-we have become cosmopolitan.
In our Freshman year, we were very modest, as became Freshmen. The Sopho-
mores, although they had not the least bit .of spirit in themselves, were constantly
pushed on by the upper classmen, so that they occasionally sailed into us and afforded
us a little amusement. They did not meddle with us at our Freshman hop, because
the -Iuniors did not yet have them sufficiently excited, but one morning in the spring-
time they caught I-Iuntington, our mascot, and tied him to a tree. Now, of course,
that was a good joke on Huntington, and we knew it, but it hurt the dignity of our
class, and so we collected our little band of warriors, and things were doing. In about
ten minutes our mascot was free, and dead and dying Sophs were piled in heaps upon
the campus. -
Vlfhen we became Sophoniores, we were alive to every situation and kept the jun-
iors and Freshmen in hot water during the wh-ole year. IN e started the ball rolling in
the fall with a hop managed by Huse and Wfilson. The Juniors and Freshmen could
not find a captain to lead them against us, so? -they let us strictly alone. Then the
Freshmen had a hop, and we caught their man Lefever and took him to the Delta Tau
house and made him think of all the bid deeds he had ever done. I-Iis girl sat wait-
ing in her bower in the deep silence of midnight, l
In the spring, the juniors had a party and we swiped their ice-cream. Then a little
later, when we had a party in the armory, the juniors persuaded the Freshmen to try to
worry us. Under the leadership of the atteniiated Captain Forsyth, they caught Davis,
our president, and kept him in 'durance vile all the afternoon and until eleven o'clock
at night. Kanzler, the chairman of the hop, by means of a bodyguard composed of Borg,
Tobin, and other football giants, kept out of their way 'and brought his lady in safety to
the armory. They 'stormed the armory doors and threw chemicals in at the windows,
but we took three of them captive and the

and women who will be famous in all vocations.
But what are all these things compared with past glory? W'e sigh for the days
that are no more. Like Alexander, we weep.

densburg, New York. S. H. is a promising young man and proves it by having
discovered alone a new method of 'Hsaturating the membrana tyrnpanif' We
do not know of his having secured any military, athletic, or class honors.
I Arch Edwards, GD P E, E N
He isn't as young as he looks and can be very sedate and sober when he wants
to impress you. Some people whisper that he is inclined to be a dandy, but
neither repeat it nor believe it. His home is at Glenwood, Iowa, where he is
boys' supervisor at the Feeble Minded Institute. I. Arch is a Phi Rho Sigma
and a Sigma Nu.
Thomas E. Sample

Receiving his literary training in the Omaha High School, Archibald emerged
from that institute with strong brain power, ready expression, and ease in ap-
proaching a certain young school teacher, with whom he seems quite well lac-
quainted. He is small in stature, which is not, however, a criterion of his bril-
liancy. Mr. Knode was one of the assistant demonstrators of anatomy 1902-03.
Neal David Nelson

ready of players.
Joseph A, Kohout
He attained his literary knowledge in the Wilber High School and Fremont Nor-
mal. His loving nature and ever radiant countenance have invited the arrows of
Cupid, until at last heart tonics and stimulants no longer avail, and matrimony
is the inevitable. He is one of the pigskin fellows, an athletic enthusiast, and
a noted obstetrician. Tr. of Camphor is his favorite remedy. i
Iohn F. Bening: '
Benign Fritz, of Sutton, Nebraska, is a native-born American of the city of New

Deliberation sits, and class cares are his right."
Warren Lee Hummer
This vigorous young horseshoer was born at Panora, Iowa, where he now lives.
He graduated from the Guthrie County High School, and then took up horse-
shoeing and the raising of blooded horses, for which he yet has a great longing.
He has always been a good student, does not lean to football, but is always one
of the mainstays of our baseball team.
Little Dick, the Scrapper, is a very belligerent member of ,O4. His impulsive

by holding a place as student assistant in chemg lab. for three years.
Albert B. Stewart, fb P E
He is a pigskin athlete from the west Des Moines High School. The only way
we account for the color of his hair is that it rusted immediately upon his
emerging from a stolen swim. This misfortune may have led him to the study
of medicine. At any rate, he is one of the boys and a good fellow generally.
Roscoe C. Campbell -
"Flip" was born longenough ago not to wish himself a Norwegian, so he
claims Iowa as his birthplace. His high school education was attained in Mt.
Arryat High School, class of 1900. From here he entered Rush Medical Col-
lege, but the fame of our school captured him. He is famous for his motor
reflex action during trying quizzes, especially those of forearm and wrist.

school quite young, and graduated from some western Nebraska high school.
He is noted for his attainment of lofty moral, mental, and physical heights. He
was secretary of the Freshman class and a member of the Chess Club. His
portrait does not appear, as he has no time to distribute them to all the friends
they would make.

'fYes," said the younger of the two men who sat before the fire, 'II suppose
every man has his youthful ambitions. I remember when I was a youngster at the
Uni. I had a burning desire to be class historian."
"VV'as it ever realized?" inquired his companion with some amusement.
"No," admitted the young man regretfully. "I had to leave school at the end
of my second year, and I never had a chance to shine. I believe I could have done
it, though. The other day I found in an old desk the notebook where I used to keep
a record of class events."
Witli a rather shame-faced laugh, he drew from his pocket a small, brown
memorandum book and began fingering the leaves.
"IVhat was your class ?,' asked the elder man.
'fNineteen-fivef' replied the would-be historian. 'fYou know I came four or five
years after you. It was a great class, too," he went on, with sudden animation.
,HI-Iere's the record of our first meeting, October 6, IQOI, in the old chapel. I was so
,green then that I spelled it 'chaplef Wliat a mixed, scared-looking crowd we were!
Nobody knew anyone else, except some of the Lincoln and Omaha people, and we
just guessed at the election of officers."
'2Lewis was your nrst president, wasn't he? I knew him slightly?
"Yes, Burdette Lewis, of Omaha. All kinds of a rustler, debater, and all that.
He wasn't elected that first meeting, though. 'VV e elected Milliken temporary chair-
man and he appointed Lewis temporary secretary. After that all we did was to ap-
point a constitution committee and adjourn. Dowling, I-Iunter, and Lewis were that
"Seems to me Lewis was rather in it.
"Yes, he was better known than most, and he had the Omaha crowd back of
him. He and Ed I-Iagensick were nominated for president at the next meeting, Octo-
"I-Iagensick? I've heard of him."
"Yes, he was our star basket ball player. I-Ie dropped out after his first year.
Well, we adopted our constitution and adjourned till October 28. Then Lewis was
elected, and we adjourned again. Of course we only had the half-hour of chapel time
for our meetings, and often the proceedings were cut short by the bell.
"At the next meeting, November I2, we really got down to work and elected
the other officers-Lefler, vice-president, secretary, Ruth Bryan, treasurer, Frank
Beers, sergeant-at-arms, Turner.
"It was in some of the meetings along there that we started preparations for
a Freshman hop. I've got the committees written down somewhere. Oh, yes-recep-
tion committee, Blanche Meeker, Ed I-Iagensick, and Alice Towneg I-Iop committee,
Lefever, Dumont, Edith Shedd, Ruth Bryan, jaynes, Haven, Sawyer. We had a jolly
time at that hop, too, even if the Sophs did kidnap our master of ceremonies. They
carried him off and dressed him up in an awful rig, but they let him come back late
in the evening. That was November 22, at l1Valsh hall.

'f0f course we had the usual difficulties concerning class yell and colors. Fin-
ally we chose green and white as our colors, because they had been those of the Lin-
coln and Gmaha High School seniors the year before, and they wanted to continue
under the same colors in their University organization. VVe got out some pretty
crescent pins in the two colors, and many of the class wore those.
"I don't remember that anything else happened that year, except our basket
ball game with the Sophs, the latter part of February. The game was a hard one,
but we defeated them 24 to 19. The men on the team were Lehmer, McDonald, Han-
kins, Hughes, and Beers. In the baseball season, which came a little later, We won
the class championship, so you see we did pretty well in athletics, for Freshiesf'
"What about girls' basket ball F"
'fSure! I had almost forgotten. The girls had a dandy team that year. Alice
Towne was captain, you remember her, donlt you? The others were-let me seef
Lorraine Comstock, Edna King, Pearl Archibald, Minnie Jansa, and Ruth Bryan. They
won the class pennant that year. Most of the girls had had good practice in their
high schools. Miss Towne and Miss Comstock came from Omaha, Miss King and
Miss Archibald from Lincoln, Miss Iansa from VVahoo, and Miss Bryan from some
eastern school where she had played quite a little."
"How on earth can you remember all that?,'
f'Oh, I've got most of it written down here. I was a regular fiend for data.
I used to haunt class meetings and pore over the Nebraslemzs, and I fancy I have
pretty complete records."
"Well, that finished your Freshman year, didn't it?"
"Yes, next year we were full-Hedged Sophomores and celebrated our majority
by a class election in October. That was rather exciting, too, for there was quite a
contest for president. Sweeley, Beers, McVVhinney, and Mather were put up at first.
Then McVVhinney withdrew in favor of Sweeley and Mather in favor of Beers. Swee-
ley was finally elected, and the other officers were, vice-president, Bruce, secretary,
Miss Colwell, treasurer, Armour, sergeant-at-arms, Sawyer.
"The nrst social event of the season, if you could call it such, was an informal
reception which the Sophomores held in the Y. M. C. A. parlors about the middle of
November. About twenty of us got together and had a jolly time, playing ping-
pong mostly. Meier was the champion. That seemed to break the ice and get us

"The girls weren't idle by any means, either, all this time. That was the sec-
ond year that the classes had contested for the championship pennant, and in the tour-
nament early in December the girls of IQO5 won again. Pearl Archibald was captain
that year and did some fine work in the tournament. The rest of the team was the
same, except that Miss Comstock's place was taken by Adele Koch, a girl from VV est
"Didn't you have any class scraps that year?"
"None to speak of. We boys blossomed out in green and white caps during
the winter, and rather expected trouble with the juniors, but nothing happened.
"Not long afterward we had our, second semester elections. I wasn't there, but
I got' the list of officers afterward. Here it is: president, Frank Beers, vice-presi-
dent, M. J. Brown, secretary, Lorraine Comstock, treasurer, Buell Chessington, ser-
geant-at-arms, Fred Sweeley, historian, Dorothy Green."
"So your youthful ambition was nipped in the bud?"
'fYes, wasn't it sad? Really, I did feel sorry about it, especially as I left
school that spring, and heard very little more about the class."

The fall of IQC52 is memorable as the date on which the class of 1906 entered

The Freshman girls had a very creditable basket ball team. It played a fast,
snappy game, and in the contests yielded to none but the girls of 'o5.
Shortly after the beginning of the second semester, the boys of the class or-
ganized a basket ball team which plays a good game. It has administered a crush-
ing defeat to the Seniors and defeated the Juniors by a good margin, so that it is now
the champion class team. It has won no greater glory, however, than our baseball
team will in all probability win,
Not only in athletics, but in intellectual things as well, the class is asserting itself.

Walter C. Booth
Coach lfValter Cowles Booth came to the University in the fall of 1900, having
graduated from Princeton in the spring of the same year. He brought with him a
reputation for great deeds upon the gridiron, having played center on the Princeton
team for three years, '97, '98, and ,QQ, taking part in almost every game during that
time. Nebraska had had unusually hard luck in '99, and consequently the prospect
was not a particularly bright one for Booth, but he started in with might and main, de-
termined to make a winning team out of the team of 1900. The Scarlet and Cream of
September 28, 1900, said of him: "Three years on Princeton as center, one year as
tackle and guard, and two years on the Andover Academy eleven give VV. C. Booth,
Princeton, '00, the experience and knowledge so necessary for a football coach, Add
to these qualifications unsual physical ability and mental capacity, and one may read-
ily understand why the students have faith in the coach and eleven this year." And a
winning team he made of it, for no team crossed our goal line that year but Minne-
sota. Tt was a year worthy of remembrance. In IQOI-O2,'BOOtl1 was kept here the
whole year as physical director, and studied law in the University. Last fall he was
with the team through all its triumphs, but left soon after the close of the season, to
return again when vvork begins next fall.
Mr. Booth is a man of prepossessing appearance. His frank, open face makes
one feel at home with him at once, and his magnificent physique inspires everyone to
athletics. He is a happy combination of the athlete, scholar, and perfect gentleman.
Lew R. Palmer
Our assistant coach for 1902 is an old classmate of Booth, and played with
him on the Princeton team in '98 and '99, His position was left end, and he is known
as one of the best ends in the history of Princeton University. In '98 he made end
on the all-American team. He was a member of the Princeton track team for the
years '97, '98, and '99, and, although he never broke any records, he won many events
for his alma mater. He was especially strong on the half-mile, mile, and two-mile
Mr. Palmer has spent just one season coaching at Nebraska, but his good
work has had telling effect upon the team. The very commendable work done by our
ends and backs, both on the Varsity and the second team, certainly indicates something
of the training they have had. a
Unlike Coach Booth, Mr. Palmer is of small stature, but his remarkable agility
more than makes up for his lack of weight. Like Booth, he is ai perfect gentleman,
and every one acknowledges him a pleasant and entertaining companion.

Charles W. Engel
Charles W. Engel was born at Hopkins, Missouri, May 25, 1879, whence at the
age of two years, he moved with his parents to Omaha. Here he has resided ever since.
He passed through the grades of the Qmaha schools and graduated from the classical
course in the high school in the year 1897. Before entering the University, he posted
one year in the high school to prepare himself for civil engineering. This 'course he
has pursued through the universitylife and will graduate in june with the degree of
bachelor of science in civil engineering. -
In the life of both high school and university Charles Engel has been a leader.
In the high school he was treasurer of the senior class and secretary and treasurer of
the athletic society, as well as taking a prominent part in social affairs. Upon entering
the University, he was rushed by several fraternities, but became a member of Phi
Kappa Psi, in which organization he has been an activex leader, holding many respon-
sible positions. During all of the past four years he has been a prominent figure in
university affairs. His most signal achievement, aside from hisspholarship, has been
the successful management the past season of the football team. "I-i-ilthisi management
he showed careful attention to detail and solid business ability. It was rowing largely
to his guidance in things financial that the season was closed with many improvements
upon the athletic field, including a fine, large grandstand, and with a large surplus in
the treasury. During the summer vacations Mr. Engel has been in the employ of vari-
ous railways in the civil engineering department, and, upon graduation, plans to enter
the same field of work.
CHARLES XV. ENGEL

captain during ,OI and 102, and he is the only man who has ever been captain for two
years at U. of N. His great work as captain of the two best teams that Nebraska
has produced and his ability as a player are Well known, not only in this, but in other
states, and our success on the gridiron in recent years has, in a large measure, been
due to the efforts of ex-Captain Westover. Mr. Westover was elected a student mem-
ber of the Athletic Board for 'oo-'01, He is a member of the junior class, having
graduated from the L. H. SQ with the class of 1900, by receiving credit for some of
his college Work. i '

engaged in Y. M. C. A. work at the city Y. M. C. A. Mr. Hunter is a first-year
man, and never had any football experience before being taken in hand by Coach Booth,
but he developed very rapidly and played a good game. He is heavy and very strong,
as well as active. He is a member of the class of ,05.
James H. Bell
james H. Bell, half back, was born September 5, 1879. Before entering the
University, he played two years on the Hastings College football team, two years on
the baseball team, and was a member of the track team one year. Since coming to the

back, but at times he has played at "full" - Mr. Bell is now taking work in the law
school and will be on the diamond again this year. He graduated with the class of
J. D. Ringer
John Dean Ringer, left guard, another four-year man, had considerable expe-
rience in athletics at the L. H. S., from which he graduated in the spring of 1899.
He played football two years, baseball two years, and was manager of the baseball
team one year. He made the Varsity during his Freshman year and played four

standing this, he played through the Minnesota. game. His ability as a player and
his work for the best interests of the team arenwell known. Mr. Ringer played on the
baseball team one year. He is now serving his' second term as a member of the Ath-
letic Board, and is vice-president of that body. He received the highest vote when

Charles E. Cotton
Charles Edgar Cotton, guard, was born june 1, 1884. 'He graduated from the
Syracuse High School with the class of 'oI. Wfhile in the high school he played two
years at full back. After graduation, he spent one year in the mountains, surveying
and getting in football trim. He played in the Minnesota and Missouri games, and
during part of the Grinnell game. Mr. Cotton is 6 feet 2M inches in height and
weighs about two hundred pounds. He did not play during the latter part of last
season, but expects to get out next season.
Orley B. Thorpe
Orley B. Thorpe, left end, was born in lllinois. Mr. Thorpe is one of the old-
timers in the football line, having played on a University team as early as 1894. He
played during the seasons of '94, ,Q5, '96, and '02, and was captain of the '96 eleven.
During his career he has played with such famous heroes as Yont, Vkfilson, Flippin,
"Bud" Jones, Wiggiiis, Hayward, and many others. He has had the rare privilege of
playing on two championship teams, the team of '94 being a winning aggregation. Mr.
Thorpe was a member of the ,Q4 baseball team, but the gridiron had more charms for
him than the diamond. Notwithstanding the fact that Qrley had been out of school
a number of years and was not in the best of condition during the past season, he
did very creditable work and his playing was a great help to the team.
Charles Frederick Shedd
Charles Frederick Shedd, left end, was born june 18, 1882, at Fairneld, Clay
county, Nebraska. He entered the Lincoln High School during the winter of 1897,
and played right end on the football team three years C98, '99, and 'ooj, being one
of the strongest players that has represented that school. In addition to his work on
the gridiron, Mr. Shedd was for two years a member of the strong L. H. S. track
team, his great strength making him a hard man to beat in the shot put. "Chic"
entered the University in the fall of IQOI, and won an enviable reputation at left end
on the strong team of that season, taking part in every game. During the season of
1902 he played his position' until injuries' forced him out of the game, after the con-
test with the Haskell Indians. The loss of this popular player was, as is well known,
a great loss to the team, but it is gratifying to know that he was permitted to take part
in the majority of the hard games of the season, including the Minnesota game: Mr.
Shedd is slowly recovering, and his many friends are anxious to see himtout again.

other students. He has always been a friend to students and they all have a good
word for him. Mr. Best has an eighty-acre farm near Denton. He is the father of
eleven children, all of whom are doing well. VV e all hope that Jack may be permitted
to train many more teams.

versity, he has played on the football teams
track teams of IQOI and IQO2. He is now
member of the Athletic Board. Last year
john R. Bender, half back, was born
graduated from the Sutton High School in
Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas. In the Uni-
of 19o1 and 1902, and held a place on the
captain of the track team of 1903, and a
he held a place in the interstate debates.
at Sutton, Nebraska, May 14, 1882, and
1960. He was captain of the baseball team,
and was also captain of the football team during the year that he played. He made
the Varsity his first year as one of the alternates for half back, and also made the
baseball team. He made the football team of ,OI as a regular player, and again caught
for the baseball team. ln the spring of ,O2 Mr. Bender was elected a student member
of the Athletic Board. His work as half back during the last season is still fresh in
the memory of all students and football enthusiasts. He 'was one of the swiftest men
on the team, as was demonstrated during the season of JOI, when he made that famous
run in the last half of the Haskell game. At the close of last season, Mr. Bender was
elected captain for IQO3. He is one of the swiftest college catchers in the VVest, and
will undoubtedly catch during' the coming season.

Eugene Follmer A
Eugene A. Follmer, left end, was born at Nelson, Nebraska, August, 1881. He
is another L. H. S. boy, having played on the high school football team three years, '99,
'00, 'o1. He was captain of the '01 team. Mr. Follmer was a member of the track
team three years, '99, 'oo, and '01, being captain in the latter year. His chief events
were the 220 and 440 yard runs. At St. joseph in 1900 he made the Zi mile run in SI
seconds. He has vvon several medals in track athletics. He and Mr. Thorpe played
left end after "Chic" Shedd was compelled to quit. His experience and great speed
were of good service to him in that position.
Harry Scott Wilson
Harry Scott Wilso11, left tackle, was born in Rock Island county, Illinois, Au-
gust 17, 1878. He attended the state normal at Normal, Illinois, '95 and '96, and Was
initiated into the mysteries of football in the latter year. Returning home from the
normal, football was forgotten until the opportunity came in 1902 to be a cornhusker.
As a first year man Mr. Wfilson did very good work. He is strong and heavy and
very active for a man of his Weight. He learns the many difficult points of the great
college game with rapidity, and endeavors to do what is asked of him. Unless some
unforeseen accident happens, Mr. VVilson will be found in the line-up next season, doing
his best to uphold the enviable reputation that Nebraska has gained in football. Mr.
W'ilson's home is in Lincoln.

Basket Ball 1901-1902
The basket ball team of IQO2, although it lost half the games it played, did re-
markably well when one considers how strong a schedule it had, consisting as it did of
such teams as Minnesota, Sioux City Y. M. C. A., and the Haskell Indians. Cortelyou
and Koehler were back and in the game. Pillsbury, who was with the team of 1901
only two games at the beginning of the season, was back and played center. Hagen-
sick, from the Lincoln High School, lent a great deal of strength to the team.

The team of IQOS composed, with one exception, of new men has made a very
good showing. Hewitt, who was a substitute on last year's team, is the only old man
back. The team has had a better schedule, probably, than any previous university
team, and yet it has lost but five games out of twelve. The team has taken two trips,
a northern and a western trip. At Minnesota the boys lost the game because they were
not accustomed to the Ioo-foot floor.

During the past two years the tennis club has been exceptionally prosperous.
The membership has grown rapidly, and the courts have been enlarged and improved.
In its intercollegiate matches the club has been almost uniformly successful. It has
been victorious over Kansas in three out of four matches in both singles and doubles,
and at Lawrence last fall defeated both Kansas and Missouri in singles. As a result
of this victory the club holds the collegiate championship in singles of the three states,
Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.
The men who have won a nrst place in an intercollegiate match during the last
two years are as follows:

Girls' Basket Ball
Basket ball for girls is becoming more and more a feature of Nebraska athletics.
Since the game was hrst started here several years ago the University girls have won
all match games played with outside teams. They have had some close contests, espe-
cially with Omaha High School and Qmaha Y. VV. C. A., but so far have managed to
come off victorious. They have played Kansas and Missouri and the Haskell Indians,
and it is to be hoped that next year games can be scheduled with other universities.
The invincible team of IQO5, consisting of Misses Archibald, Iansa, Bryan, Comstock,
King, Towne, Bell, and Koch, have held the interclass pennant since they have been
in the University.

' From the Women's Gymnasium
In an inland university like Nebraska, athletics among women must of neces-
sity be circumscribed in character. VVe have no Paradise Pond to make skating the
fashion, no river for boating, and walking clubs do not flourish-it may be for lack
of definite objective points in the stretches of our prairies. There exists, nevertheless,
in Nebraska the true spirit of enthusiasm over athletics-perhaps the restrictions serve
to deepen itghfor it would be difficult to find a college where the girls who do Ngo in"
for such things do it with keener interest. i
Although the 0"mnasium training is essentially the foundation for all that is
done by Nebraska women in this direction, the regular two years' course is, technically
speaking, not to be included under the head of athletics. But the third year work is
practically a yearis course in indoor track athletics. The director has systematically
concentrated the strength of her department upon the required courses, where general
development, rather than specialization, is the aim. Notwithstanding this, the records
made by the advanced classes in running and in high and broad jumping bear com-
parison with those of other women's gymnasiums in colleges and universities, and, if
a girl shows promise in the elementary fencing exercises, she is given every chance to
perfect her skill with the foils. Although not many girls have the quickness of eye
and the resourcefulness that must characterize a good fencer, yet the annual gymnasium
exhibitions have given evidence of considerable achievement in this fascinating exer-
There is little provision made by the University for out-door life among the
women. The tennis courts laid out each spring have their devotees. But there is no
chance for golf, nor for the field hockey that is making a stir just now among girls
whose colleges are fortunate enough to have room for a iield. So the impulse towards
athletic activity 'fstrikes in," and, as a consequence, basket ball fiourishes mightily,
Perhaps that last statement needs modification. Anyone who has once succumbed to
the fascinations of basket ball is convinced that it is through no accident of environ-
ment that the game has come to predominate and typify girls' athletics in Nebraska.
lt is the game it is-that is all.
'Whichever side of the argument one takes, the fact remains that there is a strong
and constantly growing interest in basket ball here in the University. And from the
University, it is spreading 'rapidly among the state high schools. Every year brings up
a greater amount of promising material ready to be worked into class teams at once.
'and put in training for possible promotion to the first team. when graduation or death
fthe only sufficient causesj makes a vacancy. l have it upon good authority that a
basket ball player is born, not made. But there must be something in development, if
one may judge from the brilliant players who have been evolved from apparent me-
diocrity during their four years' playing here.
The two years since the publication of the last Sovismiko have been significant
ones in the history of basket ball in the University. ln the season of Iooo-or was in-
augurated a state tournament, which brought teams from the Lincoln and Gmaha
High Schools, and the Omaha Y. XV. C. A. gymnasium. A second and equally suc-
cessful tournament was held in IQOI-O2. But the first event of the year, in point of
importance, was the interstate game in November. Here, when Missouri and Ne-
braska played against each other, was established in the Mid-VV est the precedent for in-
tercollegiate games between women's teams which it is hoped marks the beginning of
a new period in basket ball history. The second of this series of intercollegiate con-
tests occurred in the present season, when the one University team met the Haskell
Indian girls' team, and another team played Baker University.
Perhaps it is not modest, but it may be pardonable vanity which leads one in
concluding this summary of basket ball history in Nebraska, to speak of the team's
record since its organization in 1896-a record unbroken by a single defeat. This would
not be so just a cause for pride if it meant victory and nothing more, but the Winning
of a game implies training of body and mind, and self-control, and capacity for self-
sacrificeg so it is not so small a thing to win, after all.

The history of the Cadet Battalion of the last two years, of which this is a short
sketch, has been a series of interesting events. It has been commanded by three com-
mandants, viz., Lieutenant-Colonel, F. D. Eager, First Nebraska Volunteer Infantry,
Captain Samuel A. Smoke, United States Army, retired, and Captain Wfilson Chase,
Twenty-first Infantry, United States Army.
The past two years of the Battalion's history have seen fluctuations in cadet at-
tendance. In 1901, there were two hundred and sixty-seven men, in 1902, two hun-
dred and thirty-eight men, and this year an increase to four hundred and six men. The
extraordinary increase this year is due, to a certain extent, to the growth and prosper-
ity of the University, and the more strict compliance with the regulations governing
Turning now to reminiscences of two years ago, we recall to mind the competi-
tive drill when Company A, under Captain Tukey, won first place. The day will long
be remembered as the windiest and most disagreeable in the spring of 1901. The
cadets also recall to mind the memorable camp held at Fremontg the hot days, the
cold nights, and, moreover, the dust and crowds. Such events as the "swiping" of the
bass drum sticks and the cymbals before dress parade, the 'disappearance of the bell
for which the Battalion had to pay, the Htakingu 'of the battalion flag, the descent upon
the "soft drink" tent, the storming of the camp with pop-bottles, and, finally, the heroic
deeds of the cadets at the fire down town on the morning ol departure.
The next year was filled with events of importance from the date of the battal-
ion appointments and consequent resignation of a large number of officers. The ad-
vent of a new commandant in the person of Captain Smoke, of the regular army, and
the iirst for a long time, began to quicken life in the Battalion.
Recalling events of this year, we remember the excellent showing made by the
Battalion at governmental inspection, the competitive drill, and the carrying off of the
cup by Company D, under Captain Barnes. It was one of those ideal spring days, and
the largest crowd ever in attendance at competitive drill witnessed the efforts of the
companies. E -
The cadet camp held at Seward in the spring of 1902 is marked as one of the
best in the Battalion's history. Itis especially remembered by reason of its strict reg-
ulations, military discipline, pleasant location, good administration, and success in
V The fall of the same year opened up with Cadet Major Hall in temporary com-
mand until the arrival of Captain Chase. The Battalion has experienced growth in
numbers and in efhciency. The companies are enlarged and activity is felt through-
out the department. According to the rules adopted by the Board of Regents, drill is
now held four times a week. In addition, one hour is given to theoretical military in-
struction. Credit is given for all military work. A new company, B, is now formed
in which the newer and poorer men are placed until they show SUH'-1Cl61llI proficiency to
allow of their being transferred to one of the companies of the Battalion proper. This is
of the ,nature of a recruit company. The Battalion is now in the best condition of its

Agriculture in the University of Nebraska
The era of agricultural education in America dates from the year 1862, when
Congress passed what is known as the Morrill law, donating public lands to each of
those states and territories which would provide an institution offering instruction in
agriculture and the mechanic arts. By the provisions of this act, each state and terri-
tory received an acreage of land in proportion to its representation in Congress, 30,-
000 acres being appropriated for each senator and representative. This was the orig-
inal endowment. , I
In the year 1890 Congress passed another act for the further endowrnent of
these institutions. The sum designated was 315,000 the first year and an increase ot
31,000 each year until the appropriation should amount to 325,000 annually.
There are now sixty-one institutions in the United States maintaining agricul-
tural courses and receiving the funds. provided by these two acts of Congress. Of
these institutions fifteen are state universities and the remainder separate agricultural
' The University of Nebraska has provided instruction in agriculture since the
' year 1869. New courses have been
V N p added from time to time, several hav-
A riii' 'p,p .-,V W g n u g...,Lg.1b -P gpnl A ing been added during the Present
- ' rf it school year. These courses in the
.,"y ,p University are primarily for those
Students who expect to teach' agri-
culture or engage in station work,
, either state or governmental. The
i present demand for well-trained men
in the science of agriculture justifies
tt,3 ttil - 5 our University in offering liberal
f courses in the study of soils, crop
i culture, horticulture, animal nutri-
tion, breeds of live stock, principles
JUDGING AHORSE of breeding, judging animals, veteri-
nary science, dairying, and agricultural chemistry.
'With the establishment of county 'agricultural schools and the introduction of
agricultural courses in village and city high schools, a movement now under way in
many localities, the importance of agricultural study in the University is further em-
phasized. High school science teachers who are also qualified to give instruction in
agriculture will constantly be in greater demand, as the people in rural communities
recognize the importance of such training for their children. The University of Ne-
braska, situated as it is in a purely agricultural state, has a mission in this direction.
Many graduates who have elected the agricultural work in the University have
gone back to engage in the practice of farming. No business or profession responds

more quickly to the application of skill and training in fundamental principles than
does farming, and nowhere is there greater need of broad scholarship for the perform-
ance of social obligations than in rural communities.
School of Agriculture
The establishment of the School of Agriculture in 1895 was the outcome of a
popular sentiment favoring a school where boys from the farm could pursue agri-
cultural studies without the prerequisite of a high school education. A high school
training, followed by a three- or four-years agricultural course in a higher institu-
tion, is none too much schooling for the successful farmer of to-day, but the time and
expense incurred in such a training puts it beyond the reach of the majority of farm-
ers' sons. To accommodate those who are thus limited is the purpose of the Ne-
braska School of Agriculture.
This school admits students direct from the eighth grade, and is in session from
November to April. During these months work on the farm is less pressing and boys
can leave home without serious inconvenience. The regular course occupies three
years of six months each. This course combines the practical with the scientific. The
work is arranged so as to give students what information is most needed to help them
to carry on successfully the management of farms.
The Agricultural Experiment Station
The Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska was organized in accordance
with the provisions of the Hatch law, passed by Congress in 1887. The governing
board of the station is the Board of Regents of the University, and the working staff
is made up largely of the members of the agricultural faculty of the University.
The several departments of the station correspond to the departments of in-
struction in the University and School of Agriculture, namely, agriculture, animal hus-
bandry, dairy husbandry, animal pathology, horticulture, botany, agricultural chemis-
try, and entomology.
Investigations along these lines are being carried on at all times throughout the
year and the results published in bulletin form for general distribution throughout the
Any resident of Nebraska may receive any bulletin free of charge on application
to the director of the station. All bulletins are regularly sent to those whose names are
registered in the mailing list of the experiment station.
The University farm, upon which the experiment station and School of Agri-
culture are located, consists of 320 acres of land, all under cultivation save a forest
tract of several acres.
The Experiment Station of Nebraska has already saved to the state many times
its original cost and maintenance.

An Historical Sketch
BY PROF. CHARLES S. LOBINGIER
Genesis of the Idea
For the beginnings of the College of Law we must go back to the original Uni-
versity charter of 1869. That instrument not only provided for such a college among
the six which were to compose the complete University, but it also provided the chairs
THIRD-T11 the College of Law:
a. A chair of international law.
. A ch-air of common law and equity.
c. A chair of constitutional and statute law.
"d, A chair of commercial and maritime law.
0. A chair of jurisprudence." QLaws 1869, p. 174, sec. 8.1
It was not, of course, to be expected that this plan would be carried out im-
mediately or soon. The demand for law schools in that day was limited. Preparation
for the bar by ofhce study was the ruleg attendance at law schools the exception. In-
deed, when the University 'was chartered there was no law school in existence west
ofthe Missouri river. There was but one west of the Mississippi, and that one, at
Iowa City, had been opened only the year before. Moreover, the University was
not yet ready for professional schools. Its work for the First few years was largely
of a preparatory kind, such as would now be done in high schools and academies.
Nevertheless, it speaks well for the wisdom and foresight of the University's founders
that they made provision so early for a college of law. It fixed a goal for their suc-
cessors and placed an ideal before the guardians of the University's interests which
made the ultimate. accomplishment much easier.
But while the credit for the plan belongs to the founders, it is not too much to
The Movement for Realization
Wfas inaugurated by students of the University. As the years went by and the Uni-
versity began to send out its graduates, more of them entered the law' than any one
profession except, possibly, teaching. These came to appreciate the need of a law
school at home, especially as that method of preparation for the bar became more com-
mon. The classes of the later '8o's contained rather an unusual proportion of young
men intending to enter the legal profession, and it became a subject of frequent discus-
sion among the students that the time had come for opening the College of Law. In
those days the students had an active part in the Charter Day exercises. At the cele-
bration of our eighteenth anniversary, on February 15, 1887, one of the speakers in be-
half of the student body was Mr. E. C. W'iggenhorn, a Senior of that year but now,
and for nearly fifteen years, an attache of the Pension Department at WVashington.
Mr. VViggenhorn took for his theme the need of a law department in the University,
and his address was published in full in the .fv'.fCSf7C'l'ZiCl7Z, which was then the only Uni-
versity paper. After showing that the territory around us was practically unoccupied
by law schools, Mr. Vifiggenhorn urged the following, among other reasons, for his
"The preeminent fitness of Lincoln for the location of such a college would soon
become recognized. The best libraries of the Xdfest, notably the state library, would
be easily accessible. The large number of students who are always studying in this city
would be eager to avail themselves of the opportunities offered, and an attendance of two
hundred embryo jurists would be a matter of a very short time .... j The bar of
the state, that large and influential body, comprising a great portion of the most enlight-
ened and valuable citizens of the state, would be drawn into closer relation to the Uni-
versity .... Certainly no better and more necessary foundation for the study of
law could be had than is furnished by our present historical department .... May
the time be not unnecessarily prolonged during which Nebraska compels her citizens
to wander beyond the confines of her domain to seek in other states that which she
herself should furnish tlieni.'l-Hcsjvemizz, vol. 15, pp. 5, 6, March 1, 1887.
This will indicate the feeling which prevailed among the students of the Uni-
versity sixteen years ago and the efforts they were making to carry out the plan of its
Qne of the important results of this movement was the establishment of clubs
and classes among those who were pursuing ofhce study in the city of Lincoln, includ-
ing University graduates. In the winter of 1887-88 an organization was formed for
the purpose of meeting regularly and discussing and conferring about the subject of
their study. A moot court was also maintained. The organization included H. F.
Rose, now one of the foremost of the younger members of the bar of Lancaster county 5
Paul F. Clark, ex-speaker of the house of representatives, Henry VV. Pennock, now a
rising member of the Omaha bar, E. C. Wiggeiiliorii, and many others.
In the winter of 1888-89 a new organization was formed, including several mem-
bers of the University class of 1888. The moot court was continued and a regular
class maintained, with Mr. C. A. Robbins, now of the law faculty, as instructor.
This class pursued a systematic course in Pilackstone's Commentaries, Cooley on Torts,
and other works. There was a feeling among its members that it ought to become
the nucleus of a law school. W7 ith this in view, the writer was appointed a commit-
tee to interview the Board of Regents for the purpose of obtaining quarters in some
University building. The Regents, however, did not encourage the plan. One of them
said, "Our experience with the medical school Qwhich had been closed the previous
yearj has taught us to beware of any more 'experiments' " These student efforts to
carry out the plan of the founders were thus temporarily checked, but they were not
lost or wasted.
The Central Law School
In 1889 there came to Lincoln from Philadelphia Mr. WY Henry Smith, who
for a time occupied quite a prominent place in the public eye. Mr. Smith did not
claim to be a law school or even a college graduate. But he had resided atlthe seat
of the University of Pennsylvania, which included among its departments a flourishing
and progressive law school, and with its faculty, especially Professor Bispham, he
claimed a close acquaintance. Mr. Smith was enterprising, and he apparently soon C011-
ceived the idea of duplicating these conditions in Lincoln. He had some private stu-
dents and classes in law during the summer of 1889, and in the fall he made public his
plan. The State foimzal, of September 15, 1889, contained an article, evidently in-
spired, from which the following is taken:
"The establishment of a first-class law school in the city of Lincoln is now an
established fact. The new institution will open its doors November 5. The school will
be a national institution and will be known as the Central Law School. The first term
will begin November 5 and end june 7 .... Mr. XV. Henry Smith, of this city,
a well known and able attorney, will act as dean of the new institution. Mr. Smith
has had many years' practice before the Philadelphia bar and is admirably ntted to be-
come the head of a successful law school."
The remainder of the article is taken up with the proposed course and meth-
ods of study. Mr. Smith succeeded in calling to his aid a large number of the promi-
nent lawyers of the state who lent their names to his enterprise and consented to act
gratuitously as members of his teaching staff. The recitation rooms were located in
the Burr block. A secretary was employed, and Mr. Smith also for a time published
a legal magazine entitled the Ncbraslea Law Iozzrvzal. At best, however, the Central
Law School was a crude affair. The classes met at night, the facilities were poor,
and the methods unsystematic. Still it was much better than no school at all, and it
deserves notice in any sketch, however brief, of the history of the College of Law.
The former constituted, indeed, a preliminary and transitional stage in the evolution
of the latter. 'Without the Central Law School the College of Law would not have
been organized-at least not when it was.
The College of Law Established
The Central Law School was opened with the avowed purpose of ultimate
absorption by the University. The movement first inaugurated among University stu-
dents and facilitated by Mr. Smith was at length taken up by a considerable element of
the bar. By the spring of 1891 it bore fruit in the form of a recommendation on the
part of the University faculty in favor of the opening of a law department. At the
ensuing june session of the Board of Regents this recommendation was formally
adopted, and the Central Law School became the College of Law. Mr. Smith was
elected dean and a large portion of his teaching force was taken over. In 1893 Mr.
Smith was succeeded in the deanship by ex-Chief justice M. B. Reese, who will next
june complete a decade of faithful service in that position. The following table will illus-
trate the growth in attendance:
1894 61 1
1895 Q34-6 graduate sn1dents
The increase in numbers, however, gratifying as it is, falls far short of showing
the real advance of the institution. The fn-st students who were enrolled were often
illy prepared for legal study. Many of them came from the district schools, and the
holder of a college degree among them was rare. Even the graduates of our own
academic department who had decided upon entrance to the bar disdained to enter
our own law school and went to eastern institutions. Wfith the expansion of the school
there has come an improvement in its personnel, stricter requirements of admission
are now imposed and each new class includes a larger number of college graduates.
Faculty and Courses
The original teaching staff of the College of Law included a number of eminent
but busy lawyers whose connection with the institution could not, in the nature of things,
be much more than nominal. Their names were doubtless desired for the prestige they
would give, and during its formative stage this was perhaps desirable as a 1neans of
bringing the institution before the public. Gthers were employed to give a brief course
of lectures on particular subjects with which they might happen to be familiar, but
this resulted in dividing the curriculum up into heterogeneous groups of small topics
requiring the consideration of the law in piecemeal and preventing that systematic and
orderly presentation of subjects which is so essential to progress in legal study. VVith
the advance of the school these features were changed. The lecturers were gradually
dropped from the force, not by reason of objections to the individuals, but because the
system was not found to be advantageous. The work of instruction was at length con-
fined to a' regular faculty. The smaller subjects were consolidated into large groups,
and each member of the faculty was given charge of certain allied subjects, constitut-
ing the natural and logical divisions of the entire field of law. The methods of in-
struction have also greatly changed. The lecture system, which was almost universal at
the beginning, has now -practically disappeared. The class work now is on the basis
of text-book and cases, with an increasing use of the latter. Of the present faculty,
two-Dean Reese and Professor Wilsoii-have been members frompthe foundation of
the Law College, having been carried forward from the original teaching force of the
Central Law School. Professor Rob-bins was elected to the faculty in 1893, the writer
in 1900, and Assistant Professor Cook in 19o2.

Dean of the Law School
Work of the College, Past and Future
The Law School has already done something towards raising the standard of
legal education in this state outside of its own walls. It was largely instrumental in
securing the passage of the act of 1895, providing for a uniform bar examination before
the supreme court. The bill which has just been signed by the governor, lengthening
the period of preparatory legal study to three years and raising the requirements in
the way of education, was drawn by members of the faculty and introduced by a
graduate of the College. This is not only a distinct advance for the bar of the state,
but it should react favorably and soon upon the Law School. It should now be pos-
sible to make the long-contemplated and much-needed extension of our own course to
three years, thus placing us in line with the other progressive law schools of the coun-
try. Another much-recognized need is the raising of the requirements for admission to
the College. It is beginning to be seen that preparation for legal study is even more
essential than for ordinary college work-that if students must be prepared in order
to study the languages, mathematics, and history, they can not advantageously, with-
out similar training, grasp the difficult, detailed, and inexact science of the law.
The University as a whole has contributed not a little to the roll of the state's
public servants. It has already furnished two congressmen, two speakers of the state
house of representatives, district judges, and other judicial officers, and a large num-
ber of legislators. In a somewhat more restricted field the Law School should find
great opportunities for service. The state now requires ninety county judges, ninety
county attorneys, twenty-eight district judges, besides members of its highest court and
its legislators. In the larger cities police judges and justices of the peace should be offi-
cials trained in the law, and the College should be the training school for the state's
judicial and legal servants. As the volume of a state's jurisprudence expands, the ten-
dency is for the state's Law School to make a specialty of the law of its own jurisdic-
tion and to devote less attention to the jurisprudence of outside communities. This
stage will doubtless be reached in Nebraska when our sixty-two volumes of law re-
ports shall have increased to twice that number.
The College ought also to be a source of inspiration fort the improvement and
reform of the laws of our state, In a recently published bulletin of the University of
Missouri appears the following:
"0ur department of law should make its contribution to the jurisprudence of
Missouri, not only through training men, but also through wise publications. Ts the
jurisprudence of Missouri so developed that learned skill can not improve it? To
point out its deficiencies would be good work. David Dudley Field alone did much in
this respect for New Yorkf'
Quite- as much may be said of our College. lt should be the center of the best
iniiuences for all that pertains to the many-sided profession of the law. An educated
and progressive bar is a valuable institution in any community. From the College of
Law of the University of Nebraska should come in the future, not only the bulk of the
practicing lawyers of the state, but also its judges and jurists, its commentators and
law writers, its codihers and law reformers. The possibilities of such an institution in
the way of richrand noble service to the state can hardly be overestimated.
University Medical School
In May, 1902, by action of the Board of Regents, the Omaha Medical College
became the College of Medicine of the University of Nebraska. The institution thus
incorporated into the University was founded in 1880 and had experienced a steady
growth along all lines since that time. By the affiliation it now becomes an integral
part of a great institution. The work of the first and second years will ultimately be
given only in Lincoln, although for a brief transition period it may be taken either in
Lincoln or Omaha.
By the union of the two institutions opportunities are offered for medical work
which are surpassed in but few schools of the country. The various scientific labora-
tories of the University, in which the preliminary training of the medical students along
general and theoretical lines is attained, are well equipped and manned by men of broad
reputation. The atmosphere of a great University is favorable for the development of
breadth of mind and intellectual grasp, and the spirit of investigation which pervades
the student body is the best possible environment for the embryo "medicf'
On the other hand, the city of Omaha, with its numerous hospitals and exten-
sive connections with the outside world, affords unusual clinical facilities. The clini-
cal faculty enjoys a national, and in some instances even an international reputation,
and by the change is enabled to bend all its energies to the development of the clinical
work. It has many ties which bind it to the University, not the least of which is the
presence of a number of graduates and even of one former Regent of this University
on its faculty.
The college building in Omaha, which was constructed in 1899, is a large brick
and stone structure, of four stories and basement, planned to embrace the best features
of modern medical schools. It includes the usual amphitheaters for clinical lectures,
well-lighted laboratories for microscopical work, together with dissecting rooms, a dis-
pensary, and smaller rooms for clinical examinations and private investigation. There
is also a good medical library of about one thousand volumes, especially planned to
furnish means of reference on current medical topics, and this includes a good series of
current medical periodicals, besides being thoroughly indexed. The library at Lincoln
has already set aside a room as a medical seminar, and has supplied a series of works
on the phases of the work which are taken up by students on the University campus.
In addition to this, the general library of the University, that of the State Historical
Society, of the city, and at the state capitol, containing altogether I20,000 volumes, are
easily accessible, and all contain works of general and special importance to the medi-
The faculty of the College of Medicine is well represented on the staffs of the
Douglas County Hospital, the Bishop Clarkson Memorial Hospital, the Immanuel Hos-
pital, the Omaha Methodist Hospital, and the Presbyterian Hospital, so that in propor-
tion to the number of students no institution can furnish a richer and more varied
amount of clinical material.

The Domestic Science department is now in its fifth year. Beginning in a small
room on the first floor of Mechanic Arts hall, with most meager equipment and lim-
ited supplies, it has, against many odds, grown steadily, year by year, until to-day its
popularity seems assured. Slowly the University body and the public are coming to
realize that domestic science me-ans far more than a mere cooking-school for the delec-
tation of the faddistg that it is, in truth, a science focussing the theories and principles
of other sciences in the home, and so meeting a need, deep and enduring.
The two laboratory kitchens are supplied with sinks, cupboards, tables, gas stoves,
portable ovens, and a refrigerator. Each kitchen provides table room for sixteen girls,
each girl having her own culinary apparatus and a small tripod and gas burner for
individual work. Here in these kitchens, six hours weekly, the girls apply and test
for themselves, through experiments and recipes, the theory gained in lectures and read-
ings. ln all work neatness, system, and economy are emphasized, thoughtencouraged,
and accurate and complete records of all work demanded. The aim throughout is edu-
cational as well as technical. The mere mastery of recipes or attainment of manipula-
tive skill is quite subordinated to the greater need-the development of character, of
right habits of thought and action regarding the home, and of capacity to apply in-.
telligently the fundamental principles and processes of science to the conditions and ex-
igencies of home life. The relative nutritive and economic values of various foods are
discussed, foods classified according to these values, and the methods best adapted to
secure the maximum of palatability, digestibility, and nutrition from each food are given
and thoroughly tested. The fundamental principles of cooking Cand therefore of its un-
derlying sciences, physiology, hygiene, chemistry, physics, and biologyj are here devel-
oped and applied, first in the preparation of individual dishes and later in the prepara-
tion of meals. An interesting course is also given in house-planning, furnishing, and
care. The rational division and expenditure of income and the problem of domestic ser-
vice receiving consideration.
The work is designed to create a genuine and intelligent interest in the home and
its management, a desire and a capacity for better living. It must needs foster -a truer
understanding of the oneness of society in its fundamental needs, a sense of mutual re-
sponsibility for wise economy and healthful living, and a right appreciation of and re-
spect for all useful labor.

Geo. F. Miles Makes Important
Horticultural Discovery. --
A discovery that may mean much
to fruit growers of the state was made
recently in the department of botany.
VVhi'e engaged in inspecting orchards
for diseases common to the apple tree,
Geo. F Miles, who ls specializing along
the line of pathology, found what is
probably the cause oi mudh of the so-
called crown gall reported from the
nurseries of Nebraska. So badly af-
fected has nursery stock of Nebraska
become that some of the eastern states
have refused to receive 'grafts from
this state without their drst being care-
fully inspected. The disease has been
called crown gall, but Mr. "Miles finds
that it is not gallproper, but a. knoti
caused hy.a poor graft. By cutting a
longitudinal section of the knot the uu-
decayerl strings used ln tying the graft
'can be readily detected. A similar knot
may be produced on any tree by wrap-
ping a wire about one"oE the twigs or
about a. root. The root or twig, being
unable to stretch the wire, grows about
it, forming an Irregular bunch which
strongly resembles the crown gall
found on the apple tree. The string
used in Lying the grafts on apple trees
is always well waxed. The wax, if put
on in suflicient quantities, preserves
the string which nets in every way like
a wire. If less wax were made use of,
the string would finally defray and the
growth of the shoot would not be in-
1 The discovery is a lucky one and if
further investigation substantiates the
theory that the knot is really formed
by the graft, it will relieve nrcharclists
of muulruueasiness, for 1 better graft
eaix probably be made.
A report of the discovery and inves-
tiganicns carried on by Mr. hliles will
soon appear in the Nebraska Farmer
and other agricultural papers of the
Seniors Make Progress. N
The senior class met yesterday' and
tonsiclered further the matter relating
to programs. For several meetings
this question has been up for discus-
sion, but no conclusion could hr- ar-
rived at. Yesterday the whole matter
was put into the hands of the program
committee and they will use their own
judgment in selecting designs. The
Committee was increased in number
so as to better represent the class. This
move does not cut out suggestions
that any member of the class has to
olfer. Any design that may be pre-
sented to the committee will be care-
fully considered, the members of the
committee acting as a board uf judges,
merely. whose duty shall be to make
'he Enal selection.

such at spirit is not found here and

When asked as to whether the Uni-
versity really lacked college spirit or
not one of the professors said: "Well.
it cannot be said that such B spirit
is lacking, but the students are very
busy and give all the support to col-
lege affairs that their time will permit.

On the whole, the average student who
comes here with a, serious purpose
gives all the time to thc University
- that he can spare outside of his course
One of the students thought that
"college spirit ls decidedly lacking, in
fact none exists worth 'fneutionii-lg.
Track men are frequently hindered
rather than encouraged, So it is with
basket-ball practice. The student body
doesn'f get out and become familiar
with the players and at the games
only a. few appear and these because
they have tickets forced upon them.
Istthat college spirit? The Thanksgiv-
ing football games are fairly well at-
tended, but mostly by city and out-of-
town people. Debates are not attended
even wherd. if. is a matter of time
rather thunhprice. Class spirit is lack-
ing and class meetings as well as class
functions are not well attended."
Alprofessor, when interviewed, said:
"There ishnot a lark of college spirit,
but simply a lack of unified expression,
The average student is too individualis-
tic, whichtqis-probably due to general
conditions :at tlic,.y-'L-st, Out here the

responded a student to the query. "He

Nebraska Debating and Its Victories
'tThese victories are not victories for Nebraska only. They
will mark a new era in the intellectual life of Colorado, Kansas
and Missouri, which have this year learned from Nebraska what
debate really is. S0 this celebration is glorious not only for us
but for the whole Middle VVest. For this reason especially it
is that the University of Nebraska is profoundly grateful."
From Nebraska debating the last zephyr of "wind" has vanished. 'fOratory"
has unconditionally surrendered to hard, clean thinking. Sustained work, founded on
the rigorous class room training of the "Nebraska System," won, by unanimous deci-
sions, the three interstate 'debate victories in 1902, which gave Nebraska, for the first
time in her history, the championship of the Middle VV est, the significance of which vic-
tory was interpreted in the above words at the memorable celebration of May IO by
Chancellor Andrews. '
Membership on a Nebraska interstate debate team now, in every case, means
brains. Phi Beta' Kappa men seek appointment for the sake of 'the training and the
honor-two of them are on the squad this year. It has come about that at the Uni-
versity of Nebraska there is no more highly prized academic distinction than appoint-
ment as the representative of Alma Mater in these contests of scholarship and mind, to
win which in 1902 meant, not as formerly to return home unnoticed and unhonored, ig-
nored by teachers and mates, but to be met at the station by the faculty and the stu-
dents, for whom they had fought, led by 'fBennie,i' the biggest boy in all the pack, and
to be pulled to the University in triumph. "Get a rope-and if necessary go to Omaha
for it-and pull those men to the University !" was the Chancellor's ringing command
that morning at convocation when he announced the third victory. Eor college spirit
at Nebraska that was a great day. No returning Nebraska debating team had ever
before been met by anybody g no winning Nebraska athletic 'team had ever received such
an ovation as did the three victorious debating teams of IQO3 on the arrival of the vic-
tors over Missouri, carrying their "banner with the strange device"-the banner em-
blazoned with the Missouri mule.
The past year and a half has seen indifference toward debating change to inter-
est and interest to enthusiasm. This change began with the arrival of Professor Pogg,
and has been almost wholly due to the high order of ability and tireless energy which he
brought to the work. Professor Eogg came to us from Harvard on the recommen-
dation of Chancellor Andrews, who had known him at Brown as student, teacher, and
friend. His thorough specialization in English ,and English literature at Harvard,
along with his actual experience in intercollegiate debates while an undergraduate stu-
dent at Brown, had peculiarly fitted him for his work here. Things needed a shaking-
up and they got it. "Earnest work" became the watchword of the departmentg ear-
nest students rapidly enrolled under this standard. At the present time there is no more
loyal body of students, or more faithful workers than the advanced classes of Professor
VV ith the change came innovations in two directions. In the class room came
new methods, hard work, and high standards, and in the debating association came a
reorganization, at the instance of members of the association, whereby a debating board
was established. This board has immediate charge of appointing teams and of ar-

ranging for the interstate debates. Composed of members of the association and also
of members of the faculty, its legislation is the result of combined undergraduate and
professional thought. The members of the board are: President, Neil M. Cronin, presi-
dent of the association, vice-president, Frederick M. Hunter, vice-president of the as-
sociation, secretary, I. M. Paul, secretary of 'the association, successor of Walter F.
Meier, who resigned in December 3 George A. Lee, the association's delegate to the uni-
versity senate, the head of the department of American history and jurisprudence, Prof.
H. W1 Caldwellg the head of the department of European history, Prof. Fred Morrow
Fling, the head of the department of political economy, Prof. VV. G. L. Taylor, the
head of the department of philosophy, Prof. A. Ross Hillg the professor of sociology,
Prof. F.. A. Ross, and the professor of English in charge of the instruction in argu-
mentation and debate, Prof. M. M. Fogg.
Harmony prevails in the association as a result of the reorganization. In the
teams, likewise, harmony reigns. Formerly each member worked for himself, conceal
ing his points from his colleagues. Now every man'unselfishly works for the team.
The reorganization of the teaching and the business methods has effected results to-
ward which loyal sons of Old Uni strove hard and long, but without systematic direc-
tion, before IQOI-O2. Here must be mentioned also the able and devoted services of
the president and secretary of the association and the Debating Board last year-W'il-
liam Morrow and O. G. Horne.
Tnterclass debates, established this year for the championship of the University,
promise large things for debate at Nebraska. For apermanent trophy, to be held from
year to year by the winning class, the Debating Board has arranged if the debates are
sufticiently supported financially this year.
Nebraska's rank in the world of intercollegiate debate has already been raised
by her championship record. Her fame is spreading. This year challenges have come
from the North and the far F.ast. Two institutions that are not state universities have
sought alliances with Nebraska. Georgetown University, which defeated Wisconsiii
two years ago, offered to send a team from Wasliiiigton at its own expenses if Ne-
braska would accept her overtures. Wlien Nebraska had to decline, Georgetown took
up VVisconsin again. Minnesota's other engagements alone kept her from meeting Ne-
braska this year. It is altogether probable that there will be a Minnesota-Nebraska
deb-ate next year. News has come that Minnesota will ask

The society of the Sigma Xi was established at Cornell University in 1886, its
organization being due to, and designed for, workers in the engineering sciences. 4
Although, as stated, in its inception the society was a product of the needs of
those engaged in the practical applications of science for their own encouragement, this
aim was soon felt to be too narrow, and in a few years the scope of the society was broad-
ened, and its aims extended to include the encouragement of those general ideals of the
highest scholarship amongst students and Workers in all branches of science 5 ideals which
are best promulgated through the medium of original research.
At the present time, therefore, the society, through the encouragement of re-
search, endeavors to maintain the claims of science to a rightful place in higher edu-
cation, based upon its general educational value, rather than upon the fact that it affords
a direct means of attaining success in practical ways, in other words, to put science
upon an equality with literature as an element in the highest, liberal education.
To the end that these ideals should be best carried out, the society has adopted an
extremely conservative attitude, both in the granting of charters for new chapters and
in the methods of election to membership. The growth in chapters and in members has
consequently been slow. There are at present chapters at the following institutions:
Cornell University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Union College, University of Kan-
sas, Yale University, University of Minnesota, University of Nebraska, University of
Ohio, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, University of Iowa, Leland Stan-
ford University, California University, Columbia University, and Chicago University,
with a total membership of about I,2oo.
Election to membership is based, not so much upon past scholarship as upon evi-
dences of the candidatets ability to grasp the meaning of a scientific problem, and, if
need be, follow it to its logical conclusion. To this end, the selection of members is
based primarily upon some evidence of original investigation accomplished, as well as
upon future promise of attainment in that direction.
The University of Nebraska chapter, established in 1897, has enjoyed a period of
remarkable activity and growth since its founding. The present membership numbers
one hundred and two, of whom thirty-nine are now in the University and active. Meet-
ings numbering four or more yearly have been held, at which papers upon general and
technical science have been presented. A number of public lectures of more general in-
terest have also been given under the auspices of the chapter at stated intervals.

The University Union is one of the nxtures of the University. Founded during
the boom period of the state, it boomed and continues to boom. Its aim is to offer the
student an opportunity to master himself, become accomplished, and fit himself to be a
real factor in society. Broadly speaking, it stands for the cultivation of the best of
everything,-a clean, social, democratic spirit,-the very basis of our government. The
University Union is essentially democratic. It holds that the spirit which tends to set
up aristocratic classes among students is not for the best interest of the student body,
nor remotely, the state. The strife between the Hbarbsl' and the Hfratsl' is not a demo-
cratic spirit. lt is senseless, historic though it be. The University Union, with a mind
to eliminate this strife, struck from its constitution that clause which forbids its mem-
bers joining a secret college organization. It is hoped that this will help knit the old
line of division in class functions in the University and help place each on his own mer-
its, in the race for class honors.
Old Union has borne her head aloft in university life for many years, and justly
points with pride to many noted men and women in high places in the making of whom
she had an honored share. On the bench, at the bar, in the pulpit, in halls of learning,
at the editor's table, in fact in all 'walks of life involving high degree of responsibility are
found those whose voices once rang in Union hall. Almy, Avery, Pound, Kuhlmann,
Wfilson, Abbot, Meier, Maguire, Hawxby, Heitzman, Searson, Rhodes, Evans, Hat-
field, Thomas, Hawthorne, Platt, Hager, Boostrom, Fee, the Misses Melick, Shively,
McCune, Van Camp, Chappel, Masters, Nielson, Mickey, ad iminitum., Wfe are proud
of them. The state glories in the work they are doing. ff
Glory did not pass from us with these men and women. lLast year three of our
neighboring states were struck by the lightning of thought, and in each instance one of
the bolts flew from Union hall. Maxwell laid Colorado's intellectual giant to rest, Kan-
sas knelt at Hawthorne's feet, while Meier journeyed southward and returned with the
tawny Tiger's coat, adding another crown of olives to the Union shrine. This yearj
Meier will hurl the pebble at the forehead of the western Goliath, james will make ii,
Kansas "bite the dust," and McReynolds will help "show Missouri." lj
Gur future is assured as our past is secure. Other fields will be conquered.,j
Severin will rival Nast. Miss Foxwell glorifies Old Union in other lines of art.
Wle take pride in the impersonating and elocutionary ability of Mr. Baldwin
fShylockj, Misses Denny and Herbert. Misses Shotwell, Finlay, and Hanna delve in
domestic science, while among our royal entertainers are the Misses Meier and Maugh-
lin. Space forbids .giving the many qualities of the Union girls that go to make a per-
fect society. They all are true, noble, virtuous. Nor can we dwell on the excellent
characteristics of Brown, Porell, Witte, Hanlin, Daughters, et al. Brown, Noyes, Fer-
guson, Melick, and Spafford compose our basket ball team-another source of Union
glory. Amspoker, Meier, and Morrow, who leave us this year, will guide the public
safely through the rapids of legal strife, while Cowen, james, Milek, Pfeiffer, Sar-
gent, Sward, and Waltmaii, who go next year, are worthy followers in that noble pro-
Old Union's doors stand ajar. We bid you all a hearty welcome.

A -Pilgrimage into the World
The sun was setting in a cloudless sky. Not a breath of wind rustled the dry
palm thatching of the roof or stirred Rusa's loosened hair. lVith wide dark eyes she
saw the sunset and the stretch of Mexican landscape before her. Rusa was a descend-
ant of true Aztec stock, and the pride and sensitive nature which had been dormant in
her immediate ancestors were strong within her. Her ready mind had taken advan-
tage of the few chances to learn that fate had unkindly put in her way. It had been
just enough to make her ambitious and set a quick imagination enlarging on the few
facts gleaned from books. I
At the door of her father's hut she sat, her dark face resting on her hands. It
was all still here on the side of the mountain. Her mother, tired with the day's work,
was already asleep on the floor within. The father, still in the village, was riotously
enjoying, at a native "cantina," the proceeds of a few days' industry. Rusa alone seemed
living on the whole mountain-side. Down on the winding trail before her, bordered
at each side by tall century-plants, she caught sight of two donkeys, noiselessly plod-
ding, laden with heavy bales of straw. Behind them the driver in crimson blanket lent
a slowly moving bit of color. Below in the valley the little village of Acatlan lay still
and adobe-gray. The tall spires of the chapel alone held a last shining ray of the sun.
At variance with the serenity of the scene before her, Rusa's heart was a turmoil
of discontent. Her glance followed the plodding donkeys as she broke out, half to
herself, in native Spanish: HThat is just the way we must go, like the stupid little
beasts loaded with straw. Our heads down in the dust, plodding, plodding, plodding.
Wfhy did the father ever allow me to go to the ranchls school orrread the books if it
was only to be a taste and then stopped? Wfhy did they let me know that there is a
bigger world than Acatlan and the ran ch and valley, and then say that I must stay here
and bake tortillas and never know or understand anything more? I am grown now,
the mother says, for I am seventeen, and I should be a woman now and put away such
childish things as books and school and marry someone. I, who have just found out
how much there really is to see,-I, marry someone! And Enrique can't understand
why I say 'no' so persistently. I-Ie has been kind. He is the hnest fellow in Acatlan,
with a cottage, a goat-herd, and an orange grove, too. I used to think there could be
nothing finer. But the books,-they have shown me how small it is. I should have
a greater place in the world. I will, and I can,-" she stopped suddenly and then de-
cided: 'fIrIosea and his wife go to-morrow to the city of Guadalupe to sell their goats,
-they would take me. I can make a pilgrimage to the church of the virgin there. She
will help me, and I will find my place in the great outside worldf'
Rusa rose and stepped to the spring rising near the house, in a round, smooth
pool. Above it banana trees bent great green leaves. Rusa leaned over the pool and
studied, in the twilight, the reflection within.
"I am rather beautifulf' she mused, Hmy face is oval and my brows straight
and black. I ought to have a bigger place in the world than this, and I will find it." A
heavy braid dropped from her shoulder and touched the water. Rusa started from her
She turned again at the door of the hut. It was dark now, and a light spark-
led bright from somewhere in the village. Rusa's hand clinched quickly and she
smiled. To-morrow she would begin her pilgrimage. She would walk weary miles
across the mountains with Hosea and the goat-herd. She would go where people
really lived and accomplished the things she had read of in books,-to the outside
The first day of the pilgrimage was over. Since early morning Rusa had walked
with Hosea and his wife behind the goat-herd, over the rough mountain road. All
day the little animals had pattered before them through the dust and nibbled grass at
the roadsides. It had been a long, steady journey. At sundown they had stopped,
and, making a covering of a blanket stretched over the tops of four posts, their camp
was arranged for the night. Hosea and his wife were asleep there now. Rusa stood
alone looking into the night. Her home was far behind her and she was out on a
broad plain. The goats lay sleeping restlessly around. Now and then a bell tinkled
at a leader's neck and white noses were raised inquiringly.
The spirit of unrest was gone now. A benediction of peace and hope had taken
its place in Rusa's heart. A soft night wind stirred, warm and odorous from some
blossoming orchard. Rusa looked at the stars above her which seemed very near and
white. There was a sense of security there on the open plain among the herd. Rusa's
head was raised proudly. "I am starting my pilgrimage," she thought, Hin a few days
more I will enter the great city and leave all that is small and quiet behind rnef,
For ia long time she stood in the night wind, still dreaming out the descriptions
in her books. But among the other scenes a face sometimes rose in her mindg and
sparkling black eyes looked rather reproachfully at her from the shade of a wide som-
brero. "Maybe I should have told Enrique good-bye," she had to admit to herself.
Then, wrapping her gray blanket around her, she took her place beside the sefiora and
Guadalupe fair opens early of a Friday morning. Long rows of booths facing
the great cathedral were open, and heaps of fruit and collections of vari-colored pottery
were already arranged for sale.
Children in rags took their places at the church door to beg alms of the passers-
by. A couple of Americans were oiling and trying a merry-go-round, which appeared
distinctly out of touch with the primitive fair. At another stand two natives were
placing out their roulette wheel which even now had gathered a little knot of ready
Many pilgrims were entering the city and coming to the fair from outlying dis-
tricts. On the road which leads from the mountains rose the dust of a moving goat-
herd. It slowly drew near and turned down the street past the cathedral. Behind
the herd walked an elderly man and his wife. The womanls black dress was dusty and
her sandals were worn with days of travel. By her side walked a girl, tall and strong
Her eyes sparkled with excitement, and shone with eager expectation. As they drew
near, the girl spoke to her companion: "Do we go to the cathedral now ?', "No, Rusa,
first we must go to the city and sell the goats. Are you tired, child P" "Only a little,
seiora, and my feet are bruised by the stones, but the city will all be so new to me and
The older woman smiled.
They now entered the city and took a street along which a busy crowd hurried.
Rusa's lips parted with surprise. "Do they always hurry in a city ?'l she asked.
"They always hurry here and move in a crowd." And Rusa's eyes opened
wider as they went on. Few, passing, noticed the Hock of goats or those who drove
it, but the girl's attention was strained to all about her.
Hosea now guided the goats between two buildings into a cobble-paved court.
There were all kinds of livestock crowded there, and an unpleasant odor pervaded every-
thing. Hosea was soon joined by two other men, while the women leaned against the
wall in the shade and waited. Hosea spoke with one of the men, a swarthy, low-browed
Spaniard. Behind them stood the other, a paler man, an American, presumably, who
seemed advising them. Rusa saw his eyes narrow as he spoke low, and Hosea turned
quickly and said, 'IT can not take that. It is not enoughf' The Spaniard smiled. "XWe
are the only market for goats. You will not take it now ?" Hosea hesitated, then gave
Rusa's eyes blazed. "That was not fair or honorable," she cried. The older
woman shrugged her shoulders. "That is business in the city, you will learn to un-
derstand it." Hosea came back to them with a jingling purse, and the goats were be-
ing driven out at the rear gate. .
The three then turned to the fair. In all the new scenes here Rusa's mind was
turned from indignation to wonder. They walked along the line of boothsg people
jostled and pushed them. There were so many people buying and selling, buying and
selling. A hurdy-gurdy jingled noisily. They passed the roulette wheel. The men
standing around it looked at Rusa and nudged one another. Her color rose and she
raised her head proudly, hurt by the insolent stare. Some of the coarser fellows
laughed as they turned again to their gambling. Harsh sounds of quarreling issued
from the open door of a Hcantina " near. A hatless peon staggered by, leering fool-
ishly, and exhaling a sickening odor of pulque. Two women before a pottery stand
haggled shrilly over the price of an article. A gypsy woman, with crafty face, pulled
at Rusa's sleeve and asked to be allowed to tell her fortune. Rusa turned away, be-
wildered. Among this motley, bartering throng she saw now, for the first time, the
mercenary and sordid element in man. Her head thrummed with the din and hum
around her. Her heart was nlled with a dull sense of disappointment. She quickly
choked down the lunch of tortillas and fruit which her companions gave her. She
could not look at the hurrying bargaining crowd. Her eyes felt hot, and a heavy lump
had arisen in her throat. .She felt so alone here, so small and tired and useless, and
with all- her heart longed for the peaceful echo of the chapel's evening bell that sounded
up the mountain side from Acatlan. If only some familiar face, some well-known fig-
ure would pass,-but they did not. Only the continual noisy crowd. She followed her
companions listlessly. i
'fXN7e will go to the cathedral now, child," the shepherd said, and to his wife in
an undertone, 'fshe is homesick."
They reached the cathedral door, pressed through the crowd of beggars who
stretched out appealing hands, and, buying there their long candles and lighting them,
Before them opened a vast, dim place, lighted only by the hundreds of candles
in the hands of pilgrims. Low thrilling notesalof a great organ echoed and reechoed
through the arched roof, and the low inuriiiur of prayer rose from a throng kneeling
on the b-are stone floor. Rusa saw, over the heads of the worshipping crowd, the mas-
sive gold altar before which scarlet robed priests knelt and altar boys swung golden
censers. Pungent clouds of incense floated up into the dim recesses. Rusa's hand, hold-
ing the candle, trembled as she sank to her knees, and the light Hickered unsteadily.
Growing oblivious to her surroundings, the girl's whole heart became wrapped
in the superstitious devoutness of her 1'elig,ion. The music ceased, and all was still
save for the murmuring of prayers about lieii. In the vast dimness, the candles seemed
to gleam with lurid brilliancy before each worshipper's face. I-Ier prayers were not
for a greater station in the world but the cry of a lonely heart. HI-Ioly Mother," she
murmured, 'AI can not say my Ave Maria. I am not worthy of thy shrine. I seek no
place in the world now. I am lonely. Forgive my discontent, and bless me," and cross-
ing herself, her prayer was ended.
"I will make my confession now," she whispered to her companion, and ap-
proached a confession box at the side of the cathedral. The elderly priest who sat
within leaned his head to the little window to receive her confession. Hot tears gath-
ered in her eyes. 'fFather," she began, "I have made my pilgrimage from the village
of Acatlan, but I am not happy. I am not a part of all this crowd, and I could die of
loneliness. May I be forgiven Pl' 1, - but her voice broke quickly into a tremu-
lously glad cry. Beside her stood a tall form and familiar dark eyes niet hers.
"Enrique," she sob-bed, and the candle dropped and flickered out on the stone

The Nebraska Girl
Of all the maidens east or west,
N ebraska's girl we love the best.
Her heart is of the truest blue,
To her is praise, is homage due,
She's noble, brave, and strong and true-
The maiden from the 'West
Like breezes strong that sweep the plain,
She's free from all that's small or vain.
Her voice the song of birds suggests,
That carol as they build their nestsg
And in her touch rare comfort rests-
The maiden of the Plain
So let us Wide the Hag unfurl,
Salute her, fair Nebraska girl.
Among the girls of other lands
Nebraska's daughter highest stands
And praise of all, and love, commands-
Our fair Nebraska girl
Ye Fable of ye Sad Doinges whyche Happened
whenne Another Youthe Butted In
Once on a Tyme it so bifel a Youthe whose wont it was to pore much over
Bookes did fall deepe into Love. A blithesome Damosel- itte was who modestly pur-
sued, so wel as was her Might, ye Pathes of Learnynge in ye self-same Schoole.
In Tymes of Sprynge these two did wander forthe on Pleasaunt Strolles. On
Sabbath Evenynges went they to the Churche. Thence went they Home, and long
they ofttymes sat together in ye Ladye's Parlour with ye Lightes turned low. She sang
him low, sweet Songs, and thrummed soft Music on her sweet Guitar. They talked
of many thynges, of Arte, and Mynd, and Soule, ye Consolationes of Philosophie, ye
Ioyes of Scholarshipe, of gyfted ones in Tymes agone who through their VX7orkes gave
sweet Expression to their Inner Soules. Even until ye Cocke did crow at Mydnighte's
hour they held discourse. Sometymes he held yette more, he held her Hande.
All of whyche thynges, ye Pleasaunt Strolles whenne Evenynges Shade came
on, ye solemn Service at ye Holy Churche, ye blisful Doinges at ye Ladye's Home,
gave to them bothe muche Ioye and Peace and Ioyfulle Happynesse. Even for thys
alone they lived and strove, and other Thynges they did only that ye Houres aparte
might make for them what Tyme they spent together more blisful and more sweet. And
all thys Life, wherein they so muche joyed, came very cheap. Por alle these joyous
Thynges thys studious Ladde, however muche they practysed them, spent not a Penny.
As Tyme passed on, a second youthe, caught, soothe to say, by ye modest Beauty
and ye simple Taste of ye Damsel faire, cast Meanynge Glances on her whenne she
passed by. Her quiet Beauty caught his practiced Eye. She hadde sweet Graces, win-
some pretty Wayes, to whyche was joined withal completest Innocence of any Power
whyche she might have to move Men's Heartes to her. Unto thys youthe all thys
seemed New and Strange. He straightway Butted in.
Thys seconde Youthe was, truth to tell, a little shy on VVitte and lackynge Sense,
and as to Bookes whereon ye Damosel moste ardently did dote, he knew no more
thereof than did a Henne.
But he was Ryche. He wore glad, giddy Clothes. He hadde a Diamond Pinne.
His Shoes were of bright varnished Calfe with wyde, thick, yellow Soles. He blew
hys Plunks even as ye rampant Pumpkin Vine doth put forthe Blossoms, while in thys
regarde, ye Former Youthe was as ye thorny Cactus Plante whyche bloometh only once
in all an Hundred Yeares. So swift soone was hys Pace that ye other Game was
Blocked. No more that Well-Pleased Paire fared forthe of Evenynges on their Usual
Strolles, nor went they to ye Churche, nor in ye Ladye's Parlour held they late Dis-
course. No more he held her Hande.
Thys humble Youthe thereatte was Grieved fulle Sore. He flunked eache Day
in Classe. Hys Mynde forsooke hys Bookes. He could not eat. Hys Pace grewe Pale
and Thynne. He muttered strange Wilde Thynges in hys Sleepe. He helde his Pil-
low clasped uppe tight in hys Armes. He barkecl hys Room-Mate's Shynnes, and tied
Hard Knottes in the Sheetes and ye Counter-pane. Alwayes and Ever thenne he went
about muche Alone.
Albeit ye Maiden Faire nioste surely marked hys Saddened Face and eke hys
Gusty Sighes, she heeded them not one Wfhitte. She laughed and Hung Glad Iestes.
She thought less on her Bookes. Long atte a Tyme she stoode before her Mirror
Fixinge Uppe her Haire. She waited upon ye Gray Stone Steppes ye Coininge of ye
Giddy Youthe who wore line Clothes and made so free with alle hys Fatheris Glad
Sarnoleons. Ye Paire went through ye Towne. He gotte her choice rare Flowers at
ye Florist's Shoppe, and atte ye bye-way Corner of ye Streete there went they inne and
Dranke red Liquor through a Straw. i
Ye Danisel sent a Message to her Home bearinge ye Tydynges thatte Thynges
were doinge Now. Anon she TN rote Againe. And yette againe, for her Hearte was
Gladde and she was faine to Spread ye Tydynges round. Her Parentes whenne they
read Ioyed niuche thereatte, for Village Chances for yeiW'ell-Mateynge of Maidens'
Faire ever gives scante Contente to Parentes livinge there.
Her Father sold atte once six fine black Shoates, and forthwith he thenne sent
on ye Price advising her to buy more Clothes.
Thys she Straightway did.
'With great Ioye she noticed thenne how inuche itte helped.
Alonge with ye Giddy Y outhe she rode out nights to Dances in a Hacque.
Ye quiet Youthe of Former Dayes gotte Busy now. He gotte him Fine new
Clothes. He, too, wore Varnished Shoes, a Red Neck-Tye, a Derby Hatte, and car-
ried alwayes a new Paire of fine Kydde Gloves neatly folded in hys Left Hande. O,
nightes he hadde a white Veste and a long Blacke Coate with a Spiked Tayle. He
wrote to ye Olde Manne thatte ye Legislature did not appropriate. He inust put Uppe
niuche Coine for Depossite in ye Labbe. Ye Bookes whyche he must buy were very
Large and much Lucre must be Spente therefore. Ye Pryce of Boarde, too, so he
saide, hadde much Advanced.
Thys Youthe now too hadde Clothes, and he hadde NVitte into ye Bargaine.
He putte ye Gladde Younge Manne soon out of Busynesse. Soone he hadde him
Faded oute to a thinne gray Streake. He looked a Handsome Parte and in ye Crowde
he coulde hande Softe jolly arounde. Ye Dainsel Faire was very Gladde, for she
hadde long tynie since growne W'eary of ye Thynges ye Gilded Youthe did not and
could not say.
But ye Gladde Younge Manne did not Grieve for very long. He hadde growne'
weary, too. Besydes whyche, he hadde just thenne found another Girl.
So now ye Studious Youthe and ye Maiden Faire were atte it once againe. But
itte was not quite ye sanie olde Game. Ye Youthe was not so Studious, nor was ye
Maiden so Simple and so Soulful as she was in ye Dayes gone by.
No more they tooke long Pleasaunt Strolles, nor went they to ye Churche. They
spoke no niore of Arte, and Mynde, and Soul, of Musique, and ye Consolationes of
Philosophie. They Gossyped about ye next Dance and wondered if Clyde Perkins
would have Nell VVinters there. They prophesied eache to ye other on how Large
would be ye Croppe next June.
They read Softe Sonnets from a Booke bounde in Pale Blue, whereinne, be-
tween Sonnets, they kept ye Place with a Dainty Stringe. They read ye Soulful Love-
Tayles in ye Magazines. He sente her Flowers from ye Florist's Stalle, they rode in
Hacques to Dances or to ye Playe, after whyche they drove rounde to ye Grille and
Dined. For whyche Thynges to eate ye Younge Manne hadde to digge uppe 33.50 per.
Ye Tyme passed on.
Wfhenne they were wed, he Stoode eight hundred Bucks behind ye Game. ,
He gotte hymselfe a Iobbe atte ye Grocery Store. He countes ye Egges and tyes
uppe Prunes and Beanes. They pay him Fifteen a Vlfeeke.
No more they ryde out to Dances in a Hacque.
Nor do they Dine at ye Grille.
I muse and dream, aye, idle if you will,
W'hile fancy lifts my thought to higher realms.
The shadows sink beneath, and oler my senses steals
A rest, a peace that glides into my inmost soul.
VVhat matter though my day be filled with care-
IfVith petty strife for gain and useless pelf?
Ah! most ,delicious rest and balm for Weariness,
To set my spirit free and roam in fields untrod.
VVhat sights I see! what glories bind me thrall!
'What visions wrapt in fancy lead me on!
My care-free spirit upward soars to its own height,
And seeks communion with the spirit of All-truth.
Ah! envy me, ye men of petty facts,
Ye walkers in the va1ley's depths and shades!
My dream is more to me than boasted pomp and power,
For I am with my soul, and free to roam with Self.
ORION AI.BERT MATHER.
All's Fair in Love
Spring had garbed the earth in shimmering satins and filmy laces. It had put'
a song in the throat of the robin and a caress in the southern breeze, but Waldo Emer-
son Houston, better known to the boys of Easton as "Spiderlegs,,' did not mark it.
I The world was a chaos for Waldo Emerson. Life was a sea-deep abyss into
which his young spirit had been ruthlessly flung, there to beat out a dreary existence.
Man was a monster, and wo-man,-ah Woman-heartless, faithless woman-for what pur-
pose had she been created other than to goad men to despair and then to laugh cruelly
and loud, nay, boisterously, at his heartache? Ah, the treachery, the duplicity contained
in one small gingham frock with a Haunting sash of blue! H
Waldo Emerson had loved, nay, he still loved,
with an unquenchable passion that ran the whole
gamut of love's degrees. His queen knew it. I-Ie,
Weak-willed slave of his heart, had let her knowg
more, he had not cared if the Whole world saw
him as a lover, but that was in the happy long ago
when she had reciprocated. '
Could it be but a bare forty-eight hours since he
had sat beside her in school singing with a light
heart and love in his soul, advising all to "scatter
seeds of kindness ?" Wfhat mattered it if some of
the bigger boys had sniggered when he took his
seat by her side? VVhat did it signify that his un-
melodious shouting, inspired by love, had called
forth a harsh reprimand from the rasped nerves of
his teacher? She had smiled at him and had vied
with him in admonishing all to "scatter sunshine."
But all that was past now. The present was black,
the future ominous, and Love was no longer king.
It has all come about as though through the
machinations of an unkind god. VValdo Emerson's
mind had grappled with the problem in all its in-
tricacies, but the closest analysis had failed to un-
ravel the tangled skein that Fate had knotted.
It had begun at school the previous Thursday-
that fatal day of summer-like sun and azure sky.
Wfhen recess time had come there had been the
usual stampede for the water pail. "Spiderlegs," the
king among his kind, had grasped the dipper first and drunk his fill. Then came the
momentous question to whom to give the clamored-for prize. Of course he had in-
tended to give it to his I-Teart's Queen. From his superior position on the window
ledge he had looked around for her.
Could he believe his eyes when he saw her talking, smiling, to that insufferable
jenkins boy-the degenerate who always wore a necktie and never took off his shoes
before the first of june? Did not his Queen know that he disapproved of said jenkins,
and yet he saw her with his own eyes smiling into that smirking, buttermilk face?
The sight had angered him, and when she came forward to receive the tribute
of his loving heart, his displeasure had blazed into sudden fury, and he had bestowed
upon a yellow-haired yoeman girl the favor of a slight sprinkling from the drained
drinking-cupg then, with a cold, disdainful glance at his Queen, he had placed the dip-
per in the hand of the flaxen-haired damsel. Then, looking over the squirming, shout-
ing mass, he had rushed out to the play-ground for a game of crack-the-whip.
There is no need to describe how twinges of remorse cramped his heart and
loaned him unusual strength.
All that need be told is that in the subsequent game, when he was at the head
of the line, there had been an unparalleled piling-up of the second room pupils who
had been induced to attach themselves to the end. From this heap of wriggling, squirm-
ing humanity there had issued unmistakable sounds of wailing, and soon a small boy,
with a bleeding nose, had separated himself from the pack and wended his lugubrious
way toward the school house, crying lustily. Wfaldo Emerson, with dire misgivings,
had followed him, assuring him with great positiveness that he wasn't hurt, but this
the injured young gentleman refused to accredit, and he had disappeared within the
protecting portals of the school house with undiminished weeping. .
Events had followed with lightning-like rapidity. VValdo Emerson had no
sooner taken his seat at the ringing of the recess bell than the professor had entered
with evident hostile intent. He -had walked sternly down the aisle to the desk behind
which Vifaldo Emerson was already industriously poring over his third reader. He
had wasted no words in idle parley. VVith one horny hand he had grasped the ill-
fated "Spiderlegs" by the coat collar and marched him out thus ignominiously before the
whole school. There he had seated himself on a chair which cruel Fate had set op-
portunely by, and laying the unfortunate Houston over his knees, stomach downward,
he had showered cruel blows upon his victims prostrate form. Stinging, burning
blows they were, too, that had caused a sensation akin to that which the martyrs of old
suffered when burned at the stake. But it was not this barbarous torture which had
brought the tears to the eyes of Wfaldo Emerson. It was the disgrace of it-there be-
fore the whole schoolg with the teacher looking on and with her l-his Queen,-it was
that which had unlocked his lachrymal Hood gates and deluged his eyes with tears until
rivers of salt tears flowed down his either cheek. It was the shame of it that had
made him hope for instant death. And then Wfaldo Emerson"s ears grew red at the
remembrance-he turned hot and cold alternately-he had a strange and frightful sink-
ing at the pit of the stomach-he had seen her laughing, giggling delightedly. That
was too much. His ardent love almost turned to hate. She, cruel one, perhaps she
had never been chastised thus. Perhaps she considered it some new delightful game
at which iW'aldo Emerson was permitted to play with the professor.
Be that as it may, the afternoon was a cruelly long one. Walclo Emerson longed
for four olclock, longed for the moment when, just off the school grounds, some dar-
ing youth should allude to the incident.
School was dismissed at last, and lNaldo Emerson and his compeers were out in
the open world. VVal'do Emerson had stalked along in majestic silence. The rest of
the running, bobbing crowd laughed and Squealed delightedly and with joy in their
hearts, but their happiness struck no responsive chord in the breast of Waldo Emer-
son. The only solace that his heart craved was denied him. He found no opportu-
nity to soundly drub a single fellow being. Not a boy even hinted at his degradation in
He had not stopped for the usual game of catch along the road that night, nor
had he loitered for a' friendly and noisy game of leap-frog. Instead, he had silently
pursued his homeward way by the nearest route, down through Dolan's lane, then
down the tree-lined drive that ran past her house. And now it had been that Eate
had cast its cruelest shaft and the already indigo day had turned to pitchy darkness.
For there, before her house, he saw her talking to the despised jenkins.
If Wfaldo Emerson could have escaped without being seen, he would have done
so, but it was too late. They saw him and Pride bade him go onward. He had striven
hard to put the old time strut in his gait. He had shied a stone at a passing cat with
a vain assumption of his former spirit, but it was all a hollow pretense. He knew
they were grinning, grinning hatefully. He knew of what they whispered, and the
rancor grew in his heart. And then, just as he passed them with unseeing eyes, he
had heard her say-she whom he had worshiped with such knightly devotion-she
his Heart's Queen-he had heard her say, "My, didn't his legs kick around funny?"
And then she had laughed-laughed with unmistakable delight-laughed loudly and
shrilly. Then it was that he had sunk to the lowest depths. Then the Slough of
Despond had engulfed him and the world was a purgatory.
Rash thoughts of turning upon them-and of administering a savage beating
to jenkins rushed through his mind. An almost irresistible impulse to gather clods
and bombard the twain assailed him, but he had put all such thoughts by and had con-
tinued his homeward progress with step no whit abated nor increased with all the out-
ward semblance of perfect self-possession and esteem.
If his ears were on ire, it was entirely due to the exertion of the frequent
"hop, skip, and jumpf' at which exercise he was proficient before all the boys of
Easton. Thus he continued, critically measuring the ground covered in his endeavors,
and all unconscious, apparently, of the presence of his faithless one.
There is no need of following with b-rutal inquisitiveness the dreary pathway
of 'Wfaldo Emerson in the dark hours that had followed. VVe need not penetrate
into the well of his sorrow there to view with ghoulish interest the dead image of his
Wfaldo Emerson merely existed during those days. He ate as much as for-
merly, he grumbled no less than before, he took no more kindly to the enforced toilet
which a heartless mother demanded each morning, he played as noisily and boisterously
as before, but all this outward appearance of well-being was but a mask to hide a sev-
ered and bleeding heart. For in his ears there repeated itself over and again a laugh,
a blithe, happy laugh-the laugh of a faithless woman.
So, on this spring day, slowly making his way out toward Johnston's pasture
where a savage band of Mohawks awaited the coming of their chief, '4Spiderlegs," let
his mind drift back over this dreary past. And the heart-crushing irony of it all had
robbed the sun of its splendor and taken from the robin its tuneful note. Even the
sheepsorrel which "Spiderlegsl' listlessly gathered and ate had a twinge of bitterness, and
the Indian tobacco had not its sweet flavor of former times. Ah, what a power for
good or evil is love!
As VValdo Emerson surmounted the crest of the hill he beheld a scene that
should have stirred the blood of any noble red man who ever executed the war dance
in Iohnston's pasture. The settlers had closed in upon the Mohawks' lair and were
holding them besieged. As often as any brave stuck his swarthy face out of the cave,
buffalo-peas rained thick and fast upon his luckless head. HSpiderlegs" saw the daring
"Squattin' Barf' his trusty subchief, make a bold attempt to escape from this durance
vile, but the great Daniel with his cohorts had peppered him with grape and canister
till he had beat a hasty and disorderly retreat. For a moment the spirit of combat
flushed the cheeks of great chief "Legs of the Spider", his nostrils distended like a war
steed scenting battle, his eyes shone fire, and his whole figure swelled with martial
valor as he prepared to descend upon the unsuspecting Daniel and his followers, to emit
some blood-curdling war whoopg to brandish his blood-stained tomahawk and then,
laying about him single-handed, to make every hated paleface bite the dust.
Formerly he would have awaited no second thought, but now a woman's giggle
had made him a craven. He ducked down behind the brow of the hill 5 he ran, stoop-
ing, down the little draw, till he came to Davis creek. Coursing slowly along the bank
until he reached a shaded grass-plat, he sat clown and gave himself up to his reveries.
Ear off to his left he heard faint echoes of the conflict-the long-drawn triumph-
ant shout of Daniel Boone, the defiant "Ki-Ki" of "Squattin' Bar" and his tribesmen
reached his ears, but he gave them little attention. His thoughts were far aield.
The evening sun was waning ere "Spiderlegs," in response to his stomach's de-
mand for sustenance, retraced his steps toward home. The afternoon's meditation had
brought no alleviating balm for his depressed spirits. His walk was that of a man
bowed under a burden of sorrow.
Waldo Emerson had never heard of the force of magnetism or of polar attrac-
tion, else he might have been able to explain to himself something of the strange power
that drew him a block out of his way and through a devious alley to the rear of the
house of his goddess. Suffice it to say that while ambling along in that enchanted
neighborhood he heard that which caused him to stop suddenly, then apply his eye sur-
reptitiously to a convenient knot-hole in the fence that bounded the sacred precincts of
Eor full two minutes he stood thus, an interested spectator of all that was pass-
ing within the yard. Then when the cause of his curiosity had evidently been removed,
he proceeded on his way with a jauntier step and a less gloomy Visage.
The intervening days until Monday passed with their usual burden cf sorrow
and gladness, but for VValdo Emerson they were incomparably brighter than had been
On Monday the earth again breathed of good cheer, and Waldo Emerson saw
it and was appreciative, and when singing time came he again sat beside his Heartls
Queen and sang out of a full heart, for in the little pocket of his Queen's small white
apron there reposed a note which read:
"I seen you get a spankin' Saturday eve. Iwont blow. Ime sory I dident give
you the diper. No mor this time.
XV.-XLDO EMERsoN HOUSTON.iJ
And in his own trousers' ocket in close contact with a rized to , tive valued "Clas-
sies," and a fishing line, there was another billet which had made him transcendently
happy. It was as follows:
"line sory i taked too him and lated at the spankin. I dident no how it hurt.
I dont lik him anyway.

And at the bottom of this communication there were several small crosses which to the
initiated signify that all is distinctly well.

VVhom the gods love die young g
For them they load with golden talents till their souls
Grow faint beneath the burden, 'neath the task
Cf bearing each gift bravely, so that men
May say, "The gods have surely chosen well."
The day has been so still
And dull and sober, Quaker-gray,-
And now, as evening gathers in,
A few faint gusts of northeast windy
And with them hurrying Hakes of snow.
It rattles through the branches bare.
It brushes on the pane, and with
The splendid, glowing, beating crimson
Cf the sunset west, it mingles,-
Ermine for a Cardinal.
The red fades out, goes down,
And ever quicker, heavier
Falls the snow. The earth is gray.
The swaying branches moan and swing,
And toss their rattling arms.
Night closes. lfVhite the earth at last.
The mighty monster of the snow
Has claimed his prey, and in
His velvet, icy grasp the earth
Must sleep till spring.

g The Jun-i-or
This is the Jun-i-or, children. Look at him care-ful-ly, for he is very Nice. Do
you not wish you were a jun-i-or? You must all try to be like the jun-i-or, for then you
will get two pieces of pie at Dinner.
The Bugle Song
QVV ith apologies to Tennyson Q
The bugle's note from brazen throat
Peals forth each eve its baneful warning,
The students rush and in a crush
They pile into the Arm'ry, swarming.
Blow, bugle, blow, set the hurried students stumbling,
Answer, students, answer, grumbling, grumbling, grumbling!
Oh mercy, spare! how loud they swear,
And deeper, darker oaths they mutter,
While round the place with care-lined face
The Commandant doth strut and stutter.
Blow, bugle, blow, may you set the old walls tumbling!
Answer, students, answer, grumbling, grumbling, grumbling.
O Lord, this drill, a bitter pill,
That one must swallow though he strangle!
Oh curse the fates and empty pates
That ever caused so fierce a jangle!
Blow, bugle, blow, set their foolish wits to crumb-ling!
And answer, students, answer, grumbling, grumbling, grumbling.

The Fresh -man
This is the Fresh-man. Handle him gently, children, for he is very soft, and
you may sqush him. He will be old-er, some day, though he does not look it, and then
the Green will not rub off like it does now. See it on your hand!
The Song of the Freshman
Oh! We came here in the autumn
Of nineteen hundred two 5
We lounged around the campus
Witli not a thing to do.
Wfe were green to Uni customs,
No doubt we acted rash.
lfVe bought the loudest clothes in town
And blew in father's cash.
'We wrote tearful words to mother,
All about our toil and strifeg'
How everybody hated us,
And Sophomores sought our life.
of the Green.
We were afraid to cut a class,
A notice made us quake.
Our hash house didn't give us pie,
Like mother used to make.
But now were full-fledged college
Wle sport cigars and canesg
VV e think if we stay long enough
XVe'll really have some brains.
Right now we're busy studying
From books of wisdomls loreg
In the hope that when next year rolls
XVe'll be Freshies-joy! no more.

This Shining Mark, my dear children, is a Prof. He is very, very Wfise. He

Carleton Wfilburn is on the SOMBRERO Board. Heaven help him! Day after
day he wrote up junior biographies and thought out jokes until his brain was in a con-
dition sadly chaotic. He became absent-minded and often carried his hat in his hand
while walking between buildings. He went to sleep in the hallway of the Alpha Theta
Chi house, thinking he was at home on his own little couch. He even ate onions at
dinner. His heart and soul were with the SOMBRERO.
But, alas, one day the editor-in-chief approached him with a tale of woe and said
that not enough verses were forthcomingg he must court the muse a while. Then
IVilburn's heart sank and his soul rebelled. , .
'Twas bad enough to write prose. But he was brave. W'ith bitterness in his
heart and a quill in his hand he went at it. Por hours he wrestled with the festive
muse, and just as the sun was disappearing behind the rooftops he was seized with
the divine atflatus. In a few minutes the following immortal verse stood forth clear
written on the fair white page:
If all the sketches I have written But all the gold that I have gitten
Wfere piled together in a pile For these sketches I have wrote,
And with a candle they were litten, XVould not hurt the feeblest kitten
You could see the blaze a mile. If poured moulten down its throat.

fSpecial interview with the janitor of the library clock, a venerable and gray-
"Yes, the library clock has stopped running, but one poor mouse can't do every-
thing. Here I'm the father of a family and every blamed kid down with the measles.
"My wife's carrying eighteen hours in the University and she can't be expected
to lose her night's sleep, not with a European history note book due every week. Her
classes are mostly in the old building, probably you've seen her. She's a fine mouse
if I do say who shouldn't. If it vveren't for her higher education she couldn't be beat.
"But my life ain't so monotonous as you'd think, not by a good deal. I haven't
been in this library twenty years for nothing. I could give the Chancellor pointers.
"Now, you girls, just take the advice of an old mouse. You don't want to pin
your faith on those fellows that stalk out of the library and let the door swing back in
your face-they'd expect you to make the fire and black their boots. It's straight
goods I'm a giving you.
f'Of course it's dead easy to sit back in a cushioned chair and say how things
were done when you were young, but in my day every feller tipped his hat when a
lady spoke to him. Times do change, though.
"Mercy sakes! How I've been running on! You kind of acquire the habit of
talking, staying in the library so constant.
!'But, say, you tell those frat people not to come down the middle aisle like a
forty horse-power. My old bones are used to the jar, but the baby ain't."

Story of the Sorority of P. B. K.

something from Browning.
"WVoe is mef' moaned the Man, "yet have I done thy bidding. Here are ten bar-

no vice. I belong to the Y. M. C. A. Ninety-eight is my lowest mark. Ihave been

very popular professors. They have all
asked to be roasted, but their request
came too late to have our artist cartoon

likenesses, hoping that they will cause
no one bad dreams. Professor Fossler

hence his sour look. Professor Bessey

I don 't know many girls, you see,

But when they didn 't study hard
XVe saw it wouldn 't do.
XVe couldx1't have them waste their time
And to their fathers lieg
That 's not the way we manage things

'KW'hat is Shakespeare ?" is his cry,
YN hy did Shakie have to die?
He's dug .and delved in Shakespeare's tomes, '
Great Willie's spirit haunts his bones. -f
He's got a knife like Macbeth used,
He thinks that Hamlet was abused,
"To sleep, perchance to dream,', he sighs,
f'To sleep," the drowsy class replies.
He knows why Shakespeare wrote it so,
For he was Willie's twin, you know,
He's steeped and soaked in Scottish lore,
But that's what makes him such a-professor.

Professor Starr-Wfe are obliged to refuse your liberal offer for the publica-
tion of your photo. Our advertising space is limited.
T. H. Elson-lVe can not Jrescribe for your case. It seems ho Jeless.
l , l
Charles Lussier-An introduction would not be necessary before rescuing a
lim Farney-I do not think you need be afraid. Everything indicates that she
would say yes.
Bess Heacock and Carrie Slocum-lllhen you buy shoes at a bargain sale and
they aretoo small for you, it is not proper to sell them to your frat sisters.
Yale Huffman-No, it is not proper to ask the same girleto go more than five
places in two weeks.
. Eddie Davis-Bologna sausage is not considered a very healthful diet.
Tom Hewitt-From what you say, l think you talk too much in Pal business

never to have loved at all.
Katharin Sterling-lf he annoys you with his attentions, can him. It is the
only thing to do. V A

THE SOMBRERO HALL OF FAME
The D. G. Calf Christening
Une afternoon early in April the members of the Delta Gamma sorority held
a calf christening at the state farm under the auspices of the department of dairy and
animal husbandry. An earnest farm girl and a city lady of 'Welsh descent were ap-
pointed a committee on ceremony.
All the god-mothers assembled in the large stock judging room and witnessed
the administration of the holy oils to the innocent little calves. HI baptize thee, little
calf1e, in the name of Old Heck, the state farm of Nebraska, and of good mother cow
Speck." Such was the solemn sentence pronounced by the mistress of ceremonies over
the heads of sixteen little calves as they were enticed one at a time into the sanctum
bovum to the discordant strains of music furnished by Bos Galloway and Father Durham.
Wfith fitting appropriateness the first little fellow, plump and beefy, hoofed his
way to the baptismal font, received his sprinkling, and roamed away with the appel-
lation f'Love." Oh what fun! shouted the witnesses in chorus as the black and white
calf jumped across the stile. He was therefore called "Joy," for its life was destined
Then a beautiful red calf with angelic face was dipped in beef tea and chris-
tened Renie H.
The next, a pedigreed animal, one not of common stock, was named "Babe"
because it bawled so. The calf with bunting proclivities, one of the cutest on the
farm, was given the name of jane. A Winsome calf of pleasing manner and playful
disposition was labeled "XNinnie." And similar euphonious names were provided for
all the other calves as they were inveigled into the sanctuary in the presence of this
charming concourse of co-eds.

Her home is the water,
Nor fearful is she
Of the dash and the crash
Of the boisterous sea.
She scorns petty sports,
For her joy is the oarg
And the feel of the keel
As it leaps from the shore.
She's the bravest and best,
Most courageous and sweet,
This pearl of a girl

Three Theta Freshmen Green and young,
One day appeared their friends among,
In Senior caps.
Oh, what a time those Freshies had
To steal the caps! VV hat scrambles mad!
VVhat signal raps !
Quite a commotion they caused, too,
Quite more than Freshmen usually do,
VVhen on a spree.
After a stroll they reached the gym,
And then indeed did the fun begin
For this fair three.
For the Soph'mores espoused the Seniors' cause
'Mid the screams of victims and yells of applause
Two caps they won.
And the Freshmen pale, disheveled, weak,
Set off for home all still and meek
Consoled with one.

Comrades, leave us here a little, while as yet 'tis dewy eve,
Wlhen you Want us, do not call us, when We're ready We will leave.
W'inter's long, and icy pavements kept us under VVyer's eye,
And we studied while he watched us, with sweet dreams of by
and by. .
'Tis the spring,-another shirtwaist celebrates the maiden's art,
'Tis the spring, and youthful glances find their way like Cupid's
Leave us here and if they want us, if they call our lessons punk,
Tell them we are here, and bench-work We will carry if we flunk.
0 maiden with the slanting eyes,
In whose depths my trouble lies
Tcl renounce you, were Irwise.
My purse strings can not withstand
One touch of your magic Wand.
My father says it beats the band
How much money he has sent
Since with you my steps have bent.
He can not see how it's been spent.

Hard Hay Brealefast Food Co.:
DEAR Snzs-Before using your far-famed Breakfast Food I had trouble about
losing my hair. I am inclined to be absent-minded, anyway, and when I began to lose
my hair I realized that my condition was really serious. A kind friend suggested that
I try Hard Hay Breakfast Food and I did. The result was astonishing. I am over-
joyed to send you my photo for publication. Not only is my personal appearance
greatly improved, but I have obtained a position in the Lincoln Upholstering Company
and furnish them, at good rates, the hair, surplus. I can not thank you enough.

DEAR SIRS-I'IC3.I'l11g' of Mr. Hewittls success with your hair restorative, Hard

green with jealousy, for he only had twenty wives, and they hanging by their hair in
the wardrobe, while look at the feminine hearts I have shattered since beautined by
your "VVhiskerine Breakfast Food!" I shall recommend it to my brothers in fb XII,
CID A db, KE and all the other fraternal orders of which I am a member.
Hard Hay Co.:
DEAR SIRS-YOL11' Breakfast Food has been of inestimable value to me. The
beautiful gro-wth of whiskers it has produced is the jealousy of my many friends. I
fmd it comparatively easy now to gain admission anywhere on my face. My appear-
ance is so aristocratic that I have no difficulty whatever in passing wooden money on
people or passing myself as a "Count,', where formerly I was regarded as a "No-ac-
countf' All this I owe to Hard I-Iay.

A Ranch Girl's First Experience
I used to imagine the fust time I got
A beau I'd be skeered half to deathg
Qne minute feel chilly, another feel hot,
An' set there an' ketch my breath:
An' thought that the feller that sparked me 'df be
Plum full o' nice sugary words,
An' fire his sweet extract O' honey at me
As soft as the singin' oi birds,
As soft as the singin' o' birds.
Ild read it in stories how feller's 'd do
Wfhen bunched with their ladies so fair,
The kisses they'd allus be snatchin' from you,
Their fingers a combin' yer hair.
An' I was plum certain and sure when it come
My turn to be treated that way,
I'd set there embarrassed an' skeery an' dumb
As if I was made outen clay,
As if I was made outen clay.
'Well, when jack came around with a notion to court,
He wasn't as bold as I'd fearedg
He didn't cut loose like the stories report,
'An' I wasn't rattled nor skeered.
VVe sot for a while with our faces as red
As if they'd been parb'iled or skinnedg
just sot there as silent as if we was dead,
An' looked at each other and grinned,
jest looked at each other and grinned.

A maid there is who wears the key,
She is the soul of jollity
And well beloved by great and small,
By students and professors all.
The library once she left awhile,
YN e pined away without her smile.
Did you ever see a Quaker
Wlho would scorn to cast a glance
Upon a "him"?
Thatls the way this picture seenzs,
But too many happy dreams
Have been builded on this sidewise glance.
She has talents-has this lady fair,
And her friends are those on whom she
Deigns to smile.
But look out! She's hckle quite 3
He's out of mind Who's out of sight,
So do not trust too much that sidewise glance.

But they go on forever.

The Sombrero Bored
He came upon the junior board,
His pockets stuffed with motley hoard
Of jests and jokes that were old and gray 1
And covered with moss in Noahis day.
Poor, tired Senior Class-book man,
Around the campus and halls he ran 5
None but the junior board forebore
To hear what he read from his ancient store.
. The seance was more than man could endure,
So all but one stole to a spot secureg
Alas! they say that he even snored-
Can any one blame the junior bored?

Now, one more word in closing. VV e wish to take this opportunity to thank the
many friends who have so kindly assisted in the production of this volume. There
has been nothing to complain of in the way of literary support either on the part of
the board or of the class. Wfe are very grateful to those outside the board who have
helped us: Ruth Bryan, C. M. Barr, Schuyler Miller, Linn Huntington, Helen Streeter,
Arthur Wfelch, C. R. Sargent, P. H. Thomson, E. F. Piper, Helen Field, Ira Kellogg,
Lula King, Martha Cline, C. O. Stewart, Margaret Haughawaut, Dorothy Green, and
many others. C. M. Barr and Linn Huntington won the prizes offered by the Sorr-
BRERO for literary work, although, on account of lack of space, we were not able to
print Mr. Barr's story. Herbert johnson won the art prize. For the beauty of the
bool: in its artistic aspect we owe much to Doane Powell, A. A. Severin, De VVitt Han-
sen, Bernice Branson, Hazel Murray, and Philip Harrison.
'Tis sad to part when friends are dear and yet there must always be a parting.
In years to come, in a few years at most, we shall all be far away from our Alma
Mater and will often strive to recall the pleasant incidents and happy faces of bygone
days. Then may this book be a comfort to all, and may each page turned call up fa-
miliar scenes and faces and renew in our hearts the happiness of our college days.
