Representing, as it does, the work of the none too frequent hours of relaxation from the steady grind ol the classroom, and standing without a precedent in the institution, we claim for it the indulgence of the reader. Like the sturdy plant whose name it bears, the Artemisia has found it necessary to draw its substance from the sterile soil of unfavorable conditions, and like the Alma Mater, whose spirit and progress it is sup- nosed to represent, sprang from the seed sown in the desert, blossoms and thrives in the soil of poor promise. But if It reflects in any measure the worth and char- acter of the U. of N. its mission is accomplished.

His early education was received at the Ashland high school, where he graduated iu 1868. From here he entered the classical course of the Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware, Ohio, in 1869, a mem- ber of the Freshman Class. The following year he was elected principal of the Delaware high school for the spring term, and ably discharged this duty. Throughout his college course he was noted for his close application and marked ability. Recognizing his ability the faculty of the O. W. U. elected him tutor of the Latin and Greek in the College Department, and for three years he filled this position very successfully He received his degree from the university in 1873. From 1880 to 1886 he was City Superintendent of Schools in Ashland, Ohio, and at the expiration of this office was offered the presidency of Baldwin Univer- sity at Bera, Ohio. Du ring the eight years of his administration the affairs of the University were in a very prosperous condition. The enrollment of students was increased, the campus was enlarged, and the endowment fund was increased from $13,000 to $180,000. Two beautiful buildings, the Recitation Hall and Library, were also built, and remain as marks of Dr. Stubbs ' untiring effort and persever- ance. In 1890 the faculty of the Baldwin University granted him a leave of absence for two years. He spent this in travel and in pursuing the studies of German, philosophy and literature in the University of Berlin. After his return to the University he was elected president of the College Association of Ohio. In 1894 he accepted the presidency of the University of Nevada. Dr. Stubbs brought with him to this position a wide experience in educational work. During his five years ' administration the development of the institution has been remark- able. The course of study has been raised until it compares favorably with that of other instittitions of its class. The enrollment of students has increased from 189 to over 300, four splendid buildings have been placed upon the campus, and the campus itself has been enlarged. Through his efforts in organizing University Extension Classes the University influence has been felt in many places through- out the state. The present prosperous condition of our University is very largely due to Dr. Stubbs ' personal efforts. Through him our college has been recog- nized by other colleges. In 1895 he was elected Fourth Vice-President of the American Association of Colleges of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts and Chairman of the college section. In his report as Chairman of the College Section, read at the meeting held in Washington November, ' 95, he discussed the " Admission Requirements " and the " Correlation of Subjects in the Curricula of Colleges of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. " In 1898 he was elected first vice-president of the same associ- ation, and at the meeting of the association held November, 189S, he addressed the College Section on " Some Recent Changes in the Theory of Higher Education. " Dr. Stubbs has always devoted himself to the higher interests of the institu- tion over which he presides. He has shown tact, energy, enthusiasm and sound business judgment. His influence for good has been felt by both students and the community at large. Board of Regents JOHN NEWTON EVANS— Was born in Defiance, Ohio, May 13, 1835.

University of nepada •I J RE AT oaks from little acorns grow, " aptly illus- trates the growth and ' progress of our State University. Not many years past it was a dis- trict school in the eastern part of the State, but has gradually advanced until, at the present time, it is one of the most prominent institu- tions of learning on the coast. Thirty-three years ago the preliminary plans for a University were made and in November, 1865, the first Board of Regents met. This board consisted of Hon. H. G. Blasdell, then governor of Nevada, C. N. Noteware, and Rev. A. F. White. They appointed a commit- tee to select a location for the University, but this committee evidently did not meet, for no record of the proceedings has been found. Nothing more was done until I874, when the Board of Regents, consisting of P. H. Clayton, J. Schoolnig and S. H. Day, met at Wal- ley ' s Springs, and transferred twenty-one acres of land near Elko, from the Central Pacific Railroad Company to the State of Nevada. On this land a building for university purposes was provided, and in July, D. R. Sessions was elected Principal. In 1875, a dormitory was built and the tract of land fenced. In 1879, W. C. Dovey was elected Principal of the Preparatory De- partment, and in 1882 T. N. Stone was made j President, and J. E. Gignoux was placed at the 1 head of the Mining Department. While the University was situated at Elko, it ranked as a district school and was of no benefit to the | State. When the question of removal was dis- cussed, Reno put in the largest bid and agreed j to pay Elko $20,000 and to furnish $5,000 with which to erect buildings. The proposition first university building at ei,ko was accepted and the present site was purchased from J. N. Evans. Early in 1886, the main building was erected and G. H. Willis, of Virginia, and J. W. McCammon were placed in charge of the University. 19 ilnii)er$ity of nevada— continued In 1887, under the new Board of Regents, I e Roy Brown was elected President at a salary of $3,500. Miss H. K. Clapp was placed in charge of the business depart- ment, and W. M. McN. Miller taught the natural sciences. In December of this year, the Government established an experimental station in con- nection with the University. W. B. Daugherty was made Master of Bookkeeping in 1888, and R. D. Jackson was placed in charge of the Mining Department. At this time, Mrs. Galpin assumed charge of the Normal Department and Lieutenant Ducat was placed at the head of the MiHtary Department. In June, the dormitory, afterward known as Stewart Hall, was built. In 1894 President Jones resigned and Dr. J. E. Stubbs, of Ohio, was elected to fill his place. Since that time the University has rapidly advanced along all lines. f ii?0 ' ' P(| {[;;:;;;i;»Wij;c.;;jf!i; ' ' i?!. ' i; :«fip,|Sk. ' i|i l| University Buildings The University is situated on a hill overlooking the town of Reno and the Truckee River. It has a campus of large extent, on which are located the University Buildings, all built of brick. The oldest of these is Morrill Hall, so-called in honor of Senator Morrill. This is situated in the middle of the campus. In it are the Presi- dent ' s office, the faculty room, registrar ' s ofiice and the physics and chemistry recitation room on the first floor. On the second floor are the Latin and Greek recitation rooms. The third floor contains the draughting room and the recitation rooms used by Professors Lewers and Brown. In the basement is the library. Northeast of Morrill Hall is the University of nevada— eontmuea Experiment Station. In the basement are Dr. Miller ' s recita- tion room and laboratory. On the first floor are Professor Wilson ' s recitation room and also Professor McDowell ' s. On the third floor is the botany recitation room and laboratory. To the west of Morrill Hall are the Mining Building and Stewart Hall. In the first-mentioned, on the first floor is Pro- fessor Jackson ' s room and laboratory, also the assay office. On the second floor are recitation rooms, and on the third floor is the chemical laboratory. In Stewart Hall, so-called in honor of Senator William M. Stewart, of Nevada, are the normal recitation rooms and the training school, also Miss De lyaguna ' s recitation room. On the second floor are the English history and mathematics reci- tation rooms The Y. M. C. A. rooms are also on this floor. On the third floor is the University Museum. Back of the Station is the shop where all the mechanical work is done. It was built but a short time ago, and is well furnished. Downstairs is the electrical department and upstairs the mechanical. The Gymnasium is a large building, and is well fitted for the purpose for which it was built. At the beginning of the fall term of ' 98, Mr. Frank Ellis, of Berkeley, was engaged as gymnasium instructor. Lincoln Hall is a commodious structure, situated at the northern extremity of the campus. It is the hall for boys, and is well furnished and made as pleasant as possible for the young men who live there. Mr. Richard Brown and family live in Lincoln Hall, and Dr. Stiibbs and family reside in the " Cottage. " The " Cottage " is the hall for young women. It is smaller than Lincoln Hall and not quite completed, yet it is pleasanter and better furnished than most halls o its kind. „ Course of Study. There are six courses 0 study in the University, viz.: The School of Liber a Arts, the School of Mines, the School of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, The School of Civil Engineering, The School of Electrical Engineering and the School of Industrial Arts. Beside these are The Normal Department, The Commercial School, The Preparatory School, The Training School, and the Military Department . In the School of Liberal Arts is given the Degree of Bachelor of Arts. This course is taken by students wishing a general education or profession. The studie included are English, the modern Languages, Latin, Greek, History, Mathematics, Botany, Geology, Chemistry, and Physics. In the Freshman year, most of the studies are required, but as the student advances he is permitted to elect many of them. The School of Mines indicates by its name the course of study. Students wishing to become mining experts, assayers, etc., follow this line of work. Metallurgy, Chemistry and Physics, Mineralogy, and Mathematics are the chief studies. As Nevada is a mining country, the advantages offered in this school are most excellent, for the student is able to do the practical as well as the theoretical work. The students have built a small mill, in connection with which are concentrators, amalgamating plates and a leaching plant. In the School of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, a modem language is 23 Uniuersity of ncwda— eontiuuca required; also niechamc ' s chemistry, botany, biology, zoology, mathematics, English and history.

Perhaps the most permanent and beneficial of these organizations was the Independent Association. In September, 1893, the upper classmen, most of whom were accustomed to congregate in this popular dormitory, feeling the need of a college publication, began to discuss the matter. Soon afterwards the Adelphi, at that time the literary society of the University, took the matter up and appointed a commit- tee of three of its members to interview the University Regents and if possible to obtain their co-operation and support. At first the Regents acquiesced, but in the afternoon of the same day on which the commit- tee interviewed them, they reconsidered their action and forbade the issuing of a college paper. It was then that the Independent Association came to life. Had the Regents given their consent, there would never have been such an organization. The committee reported back to the Adelphi. The Adelphi promptly severed its connection with the undertaking and adjourned, some of the members to the Mining Building, where they agreed among themselves to publish a paper in spite of the Regents. Accordingly a body of twenty students, consisting of the male members of the Senior, Junior and Sopho- more classes, met in the basement of the Congregational Church and formed the Independent Association. The object of the Association was to publish a paper in- terested mostly in University matters and to be called The Student Record. After organizing, no time was lost. Mr. Charles Magill, ' 94, was elected President of the Association and soon afterwards was made Dx-ofiicio Editor in Chief. Mr. F. C. Frey was elected Business Manager. The Nevada State Journal was sworn into secrecy and awarded the contract to print the paper. The first number of The Student Record was dated October 19, 1893. It was made up of eight pages, six inches wide by nine in length. In the first two issues the names of the editors were with- held. On November 19, 1893, the Record appeared about twice its 25 ormer size and bore the names of the members of the editorial staff. The Record prospered very well the first year. A special twenty- page issue, describing the equipment and work of the University, with illustrations, appeared on March 15th, 1894. At the reopening of the University in September, 1894, after the summer vacation, the form of the Record was changed to virtually what it is now. Since that very few changes have taken place, except in editorial staff from year to year. Mr. Magill was succeeded by F. H. Saxton, ' 95, a man who, perhaps, has done more to create an nterest in literature in the ' Varsity than any other one man. The next year there were two editors-in-chief, O- T. Williams, ' 96, for the first Semester and J. M. L. Henry, ' 96, the second. In Mr. Williams ' term the Association had thriven so well as to donate two hundred dol- lars to the Gymnasium Fund. Mr. Henry was succeeded by George R. Bliss, ' 97, who in turn was followed by J. J. Sullivan, ' 98. H. H. Dexter, ' 99, is the present editor-in-chief. This year the Association has broadened its functions. In addi- tion to issuing The Student Record, it has undertaken the publica- tion of our first college annual, The Artemisia. By accomplishing this two fold task, it has become more than ever a benefit to the University. Representing as it does our best literary interests, it bids fair to reflect credit on the student body and our alma mater. K. 26 II ARTEMISIA STAFF. Jtrtetnisia HOU art not fragrant Artemisia, Nor hast thou a beauteous flower, Brilliant leaves thou canst not flutter, Nature quite forgot thy dower. Artists seek not thee for color; Poets sing not of thy shades; But to me, O, Artemisia, Sacred are thy sunny glades. Few can know, O, Artemisia, All the beauties that ye hide. Dainty nest of flute-voiced thrasher, And shy sage fowl there abide ; Soft-eyed rabbits love thy thickets. Tender mosses ease their feet, Where, perchance, some purple blossoms Fragrant make their cool retreat. Oh, how rarely Nature made thee, For the creatures that ye love ! Frightened, though, each one will seek thee, F ' en the shyest mourning dove. Throbbing hearts thy shadows quiet; Quivering creatures nestle down. Knowing well the place of refuge ' Neath the spreading of thy crown. Memories art there, Artemisia, Of long, weary journeys made. Where thy gathered branches, kindled, Mingled with the lights that fade. Fragrant still those memoried campfires Though their embers long are dead ; Thankful were the wearied travelers That by thee the fires were fed. 29 4 -• « Far across the wastes of desert Fell aslant the sinking sun, Making all thy myriad branches Into molten silver run ; Kissing thee, plain Artemisia, ' ' As thou wast a royal one, . , Glorifying all thy raiment As magicians might have done. Thus, thou simple Artemisia, Nature would the slight undo. Creatures love thee not for beauty; Wanderers find a friend most true; And the sun, so proud, so haughty, Traveling far above thy ways. In his glory deigns to kiss thee, Sanctifying all thy days. But to me, O, Artemisia, Bring thou childish moments back. And in this thou art made dearer Than by beauties that thou lack. Mountains clothed in thee forever. Towering up to view the sky. All about my home in childhood. Seemed to meet the blue on high. Thou wast home, O, Artemisia, To the creatures and to me. This of all the things the dearest, To be near thee, strong and free, Up among the gloomy canons, In and out the wild ravines — Only thou, sweet Artemisia, Canst revive those cherished scenes. H. E. CruTCHER. 30 31 Jimbition K saw within the Labyrinth of Life Where somber shadows hung on every hand, A maiden bright of eye and fair of face. " Come hither lovely maiden, lead me on. Direct me to the light within the space. " ■ " I cannot tarry, " spoke the winsome vision, " Nor may I pause to hold converse with you. To lead, not to direct is my strange mission. But you may follow, it is your just due. " With this the dream of lovely womanhood Tripped on into the tangled maze of curves. He gave pursuit; and soon refulgent light Shone down upon him from a source above. Yet from the stern pursuit he never swerves. She led him on. Straightway the shadows fell, Upon a path more rugged than before. But look! a horrid change is now upon the girl, Her step grows slow, uncertain. He draws near. She is a wretched crone, dull eyes and feeble breath. Upon her face he sees the stamp of death. Once more he speaks, this time in hoarse dismay, " What are you, Phantom, why this ghastly change . " I am Ambition , ' ' croaked the specter gray. ■ ' What was the Ught I passed by in my haste? " " The Light of Worldly Fame, " replied the death- like crone.

The excavation was nearly completed when the spade of one of the workmen struck against some object which gave forth a hollow sound. Rap- idly clearing away the soil around it, and giving a few vigor- ous pulls, the man unearthed the obstruction. His shout of surprise brought his companions instantly to see the cause of the outcry. They saw before them a box of modest dimensions whose worm-eaten sides gave testimony that it ;had been buried jfor years. There was a design on the cover which the foreman, digging away the incrusting earth, tried to decipher. The workmen crowded about, and, after a minute ' s careful inspection, decided that magic of some sort iwas connected with the contents. " If thim things on the cover ain ' t schnakes Oi ' m a Dutchman, " said one, and at the command of the foreman he hurried off to summon the President of the University. Within fifteen minutes every Professor and student on the campus was about the mysterious box. The President motioned the crowd to stand back, and, cautiously approaching, easily wrenched off the cover and lifted up a thick sheet of brown paper which protected the contents. The first thing that met his inquiring gaze was a peculiar object, shaped some- what like a serpent. It was wrapped in silk, the color of which was almost indis- tinguishable. At a nod from the President, the Professor of Mineralogy ap- proached and cautiously removed the covering with his knife. A bright metal was disclosed, which the Professor pronounced to be tin. " Queer! " he muttered, " I cannot remember any age when the inhabitants of our country regarded this metal as precious; this discovery, however, shows that great care was taken even of small portions of it. " The object was placed on the ground so that all could see it. A second " serpent, " the exact counterpart of thefirst, was placed beside it. ♦ . . Diet) ... GENUNG=BROOKS.

A burst of laughter came from the crowd. " Oh, how hideous ! Did people ever really ivear such things as those? " cried a feminine voice; and a wave of pity for their benighted ancestors surged ||r||,| through the assembled company. Two more hats followed — one, a dingy gray, crownless, the brim partly gone, and a skull and cross- _ bones plainly visible on its battered side; the other, a seedy, black - ly affair, which the Professor of History pronounced to be the remains of a hat known in the nineteenth century as a " plug " or a " stove- ■t . ' pipe. " A green-covered notebook, tightly held together with cotton cord, came next. And lastly, the President removed a manu- script, yellowed with age. " This writing will, I think, solve the mystery, " he remarked. Then, with a wave of his hand toward a building, whose glittering dome rose high above the trees at the north of the campus, he said: " Students and pro- fissors will congregate immediately in Assembly Hall, where the English professor will read this manuscript to us. " As soon as everyone was inside the hall, the Professor of English (whose skill in deciphering nineteenth century chirography at a glance was remarkable), advanced to the platform, and without a word of introduction began to read: :M) sl-y- € - M l)i$torv of the €ia$$ of i$ 9 of the University of Dcvada The history of the Class of ' 99, U- of N registered their names in the books of the University until the day when such of those names as had survived the tribulations of four years of college life were transferred to the list of gradu- ates — is an inteiesting and highly in- structive one. In view of this fact we have decided to record said his- tory in hopes that by our example future generations of students in our beloved college may be beneiited. Ha, ha, ha ! , Zip, zee, zah ! ' 99. ' 99. ' Rah, rah, rah ! from the time that its members first b RIstory of the Senior Class— continued Our first class meeting, held in the fall of ' 95, was an imposing one, attended by at least seventy members. Our officers were elected in the usual way, even so original a class as our own being obliged to follow parliamentry rules and regula- tions. On the twenty-sixth day of the following month we held our first class contest. The Sophomore-Freshman field day was an exciting event, and every student was present. The Senior and Junior classes went to the athletic field in hacks, the Sopho- more class in coaches; the Freshman class went in any old way, some of its members evincing their independence by walking ' cross lots. The result of the field day was seventeen to sixteen in favor of the Sophomores, but we considered that " a bad begin- ning makes a good ending, " and felt encouraged. The same month we were entertained by the Sophomores, and in January we returned the compliment. The next event was a cane-rush, arranged by the considerate Sophs. Three men were chosen from each class, three canes were hotly struggled for, and at the close of the contest one-sixth of those three canes belonged to the Freshmen. We were beaten by the Sophs at baseball a point or so, but a few little errors in our first year made us positive that we would graduate in a blaze of glory, so we were not discouraged. We studied diligently, breaking all scholarship records of previous Freshman classes. At the end of the year we had the satisfaction of laying to rest our beloved Genung — at once the pride and despair of the trembling Freshman. The Sophs, fearing to interrupt the ceremonies, contented themselves with following in the wake of the extensive funeral train; and " with lamentationes, fletus et furorem inutilem Sophomorum, " the coffin was buried. A few un- fortunates, however, had some trouble in ' ' laying the ghost. ' ' In our Sophomore year we instituted that organization so dear to our hearts for a few short months, the Sophomore Literary Society. Every two weeks the diligent members of the class would congregate in Assembly Hall and amuse each other with finished literary productions. All went well until one eventful April evening, when the poet of the society undertook to recite a poem of his own composition. Unfortunately he infringed slightly on the personal affairs of some of the members present. The discord occasioned thereby severed a few friendly relations and practically stopped the career of the society. 45 Ristorv of tbe Senior glass— contiuuea There was fine sleighing in the winter of ' 97, and part of the class took a bob-sled ride on Washington ' s Birthday. One member enjoyed the privilege of having his face washed with fleecy snow five times in three minutes by " the girls who couldn ' t do it. " On April 17 came the cane-rush. This time there was but one cane, and the rush was carried out on strictly business principles. We almost lost one stalwart youth, who was ab- ducted by the Freshmen on the morning of the rush, handcuffed, and tied to a barn some distance from town. By a superhuman effort (and the timely aid of a laborer) he released himself and reached the ' Varsity campus in time to assist in the Sophomores ' victory. Then came the Sophomore-Freshman football game. The weather was a bit damp, and the ground underfoot [slightly adhesive, but by earnest effort our team managed to score a trifling defeat. In ' the even- ing we held a " Rally, " and one or two samples of the confectionery then manufactured are still cherished by members of the class. In May the boys of the class gave a party at the " Seminary, " and no event of our college life was enjoyed more thoroughly by everyone. A fine account of our baseball game with the Freshmen may be read in the Student Record for May, 1897. This game strengthened our hope that our Senior year would be unusually suc- cessful. All things come to the patient, however. The basket ball game between ' 99 and the " Cottage girls " resulted in victory for the Sophs., and proved the ' 99 boys to be accomplished " rooters. " One morning in May the Freshmen discovered a life-like effigy, symbolic of themselves, suspended from the electric-light wire, and gracefully swaying to and fro in the breeze. Horrified, they took immediate measures for its removal but ' 99 came to the rescue, and the mangled remains of the " ' 00 dummy " soon disfigured the level campus. The commencement of ' 97 closed our career as Sophomores, and with it the most eventful year of our college life. We are especially proud of our scholarship record for ' 97. As many as three boys didn ' t have a single condition. In our Junior year we applied ourselves industriously to our work. The geology recitations were espe- cially interesting, although it washard to convince one maiden that a fly, in- serted head first into a specimen of coral, was not a coral insect come to life. The Junior Prom, was a great success, the sandwiches being man- ufactured for the affair with unrivaled celerity and skill. A certain act of one of our members, medically in- 46 [)i$tory of tbe Senior (Klass— continued clined, in the Christmas vacation of this year has been misunderstood by some people. We wish to explain that it was only canned chicken that he purloined from the back doorstep of Stewart Hall. We also wish to state that hunger drove him to it. Our Senior year was a peculiarly pleasant one. Never were " Senior Plugs " worn with more dignity than by the boys of ' 99. Victory perched upon our banner in the Senior-Junior baseball game. There were a few differences of opinion in regard to certain class matters, it is true. The " Senator " objected to wearing at grad - nation anything resembling a toga; and the ideas of the class concerning some other points were not exactly unanimous. But no serious discord marred the har- mony of our last year in college. We mourn the fact that this history must be written before our college career is finished, but fate has so willed it. Profit, oh students, by our example, and may the blessing of the class of 1899 go witb you. The voice of the Professor of English faltered and ceased. The silence of Assembly Hall was broken only by the sound of suppressed weeping. Many a student remembered a venerable grandfather or great-grandfather who had been a member of the class of 1899, and the manuscript called forth tender recollections. Finally the President, his face expressive of inward emotion, arose and addressed the Assembly : " You have listened to the history of the class of 1899. So far as I can judge, it is a truthful record of the college course. But the modesty of the statements in this manuscript is touching. Never in the annals of the University has there been so illustrious a class as this one. All through the buildings of our institution are scattered evidences of the fact. Our laboratory still reveres the name of Emmet Derby Boyle, the greatest expert in quantitative analysis Nevada has ever known. Search the history of the Student Record and you will find that every editor cites Harry Dexter as an authority on col- lege journalism. In the hall of our great Philomathean 47 i H l)i$torv of tftc Senior (glass— continued Society hangs the portrait of Thomas Jefferson Lawrence, its founder. John Milton Gregory ' s textbook on ' The Eradication of the Grip Germ ' is well known to all of you. Young women ath- letes now profit by the impetus which Louise G. Ward gave to basket ball a century ago. Is there a musician among us who does not regard Enid Williams ' treatise on ' Paderewski; or the Necessity of Well-Tuned Pianos, ' as invaluable ? Every student in English now strives to reach the perfection in rhetoric attained by Alfred Longley, the rhetorical wonder of the nine- teenth century. And what Freshman, just starting on his literary career, does not daily refer to his well-thumbed copy of Lamb ' s ' Debates for the Young. ' But I must not enumerate further. Every member of this class became famous, with the exception of two, who fell victims to the experiments of J. M. Gregory. " The relics found in the box will be honored by a permanent place in the University Museum, and this manuscript, carefully bound, will be placed in the Library, so that every one of you may read it, and by the noble example of the class of 1899, be inspired to greater effort.

" Came the summons to a lass ; All she did was scribble, scribble, Then she signed it — Lotta Sybil. 52 Whoopla ! Whoopla ! Whoopla-re ! Ke-ro ! Kiro ! Karo Kee ! 1900! Century! Nearly three years have passed since " 1900 " entered the University, and dur- ing that time the class has figured in many events of college historical interest. Its Freshman year was unmovable, but particularly from an athletic standpoint. In the " dummy rush " which took place early in the year, " ' 00 " failed to obtain possession of their effigy which " ' 99 " had hung back of Morrill Hall, and again succumbed to the greater running strength of the Soph ' s in the cane rush, but these were the only defeats of the year. In the class football game, played on Dec. 12th, ' 96, in a pouring rainstorm, the Freshmen eleven piled up a score of 20 points, against the 4 made by the confi- dent Soph ' s; defeated them again badly in the class baseball game on May 7th, ' 97, and on May 15th of the same year won the crowning victory in the Class Field Day, when " ' 99 " lost again by a score of 51 to 47. The Sophomore year passed off uneventfully. Considerably reduced in num- bers, the class did not undertake any athletic contests, but achievements in the intellectual field made up for this, as a perceptible improvement in scholarship was noticeable during the year. A class picnic was held at the end of the term, which was thoroughly enjoyed. It was discovered here that however successful a certain member of ' 00 might be in shooting Cupid ' s darts at " Marx, " his skill deserted him when it came to a target rifle. The Junior year brought the first taste of the responsibilities of the upper classman, which included the care of the class of " ' 02. " The Junior Prom, came off Dec. 21st and marked the class as entertainers of the highest order. In the class baseball tournament, the Juniors met the Seniors on the diamond on Washington ' s birthday, but were defeated by a score of 18 to 25. " 1900 " will soon appear in the fourth and final scene of the college drama, and when the curtain descends, the institution may well feel that a good class has gone out. 53 Sopbontore €la$$ ' 01 H Rat— ta— tat, ta— tat, ta— tat!

The Class of ' or entered the University in September, 1897, and soon after formed a class organization, electing the following officers for the first semes ter: President, Paul S. Moorman; Vice-President, Carl Stoddard; Secre- tary, Miss Maude Nash; Treasurer, Miss Verra Davis. After considerable discussion the class chose cerise and apple green for their colors and adopted the yell that has become so well known on the campus. During the second semester the officers were; Presi- dent, Carl Stoddard; Vice-President, Miss Kate Bender; Secretary, Miss Verra Davis; Treasurer, Alfred R. Sadler. During the school year of ' gy- ' gS there was but little class rivalry and no class contests between Sophomores and Freshmen. The officers for the first semester of the year ' gS- ' gg were: President, Charles Mayer; Vice-President, Miss Maude Nash; Secretary, Miss Kate Bender; Treasurer, Roy Richard. This term proved an eventful one. The class of ' 01 won the right to carry canes and wear white vests by rushing a cane across the football field against the oposi- tion of the Freshmen. Later the Sophomores defeated the Freshmen at football, 52 to o. But all animosity be- tween the two classes was buried in the Sophomore " Hop " and good feeling further promoted by the return " Glee " of the Freshmen. The officers of the class for the present semester are: President, W. Arthur Keddie; Vice-President, Miss Verra Davis; Secretary, Fenton A. Bonham; Treasurer, Halbert H. Howe. This semester was marked by a lively " rush " over a Freshman " dvimmy " which the Sophs, hung on the front of the campus, the victory of which is claimed by both sides. The class baseball tournament was also won by ' 01, the Sophomore nine defeating the Freshmen and Senior nines, winning the pennant and adding two more victories to the score of the cerise and green. 54 b ' • ?:%.

However, in a dummy-rush, which occurred last January the Freshmen claimed the victory. The point has never been decided to the satisfaction of everybody concerned, and probably never will. The Freshman Glee came off in the Gymnasium on the evening of November 26, and was voted by all present the social event of the season.

Like older societies, it included among its members students from all college courses, as well as from the Normal School. In those days Room 6, Morrill Hall, was the place of meeting, and many are the pleasant recollections of Friday evenings profitably spent within its confines. Although the Adelphi never realized its motto, " Ad Astra per Aspera, " yet to some, the training there received has been of service in other and broader fields. The Adelphi was a means of bringing students into closer relations. Like all literary societies, rightly con- ducted, it was a means of culture, for we can not mingle together without being influenced by such association. And since ambitious, conscientious students give of their best efforts when voluntarily matched against one another in debate it is not an exaggeration to say, that for one who earnestly desires self-improvement in what Emerson calls the " mechanical advantage of detachment " the literary society IS the place in which it is best obtained. Advocates of co-education find in literary societies such as the Adelphi, advantages not possessed by clubs or societies composed of members of one sex only. If we have co-education in the class room, why not also in the literary society ? The Debating Union was organized with the implied motto, " learn to do bv doing. " In order to facilitate this end, the maximum membership was at first placed at twelve. Unlike other literary societies, the Debating Union received no co-eds as members. Meetings were held quietly and y ;-, ..;,,.., without display. The questions selected for debate Biilfe ' ' : ' ' were usually political, and applied to more than our own country. In the Debating Union, certain im- provements over other societies were noticable. Because the subjects chosen were current and of national importance, debaters manifested unusual interest in studying the subjects, and prepared their arguments carefully. The enthusiasm thus elicited made this society very popular. While due regard was paid to rhetorical embellishments, still the most striking characteristic in all these speeches was the zeal with which debaters endeavored to learn the truth ; not the truth as exemplified in the latest newspaper, ' nor in accordance with well-known views of some venerated forefather, but the truth as it has been and is now. Here the speaker might call to his aid histo- rical lessons learned long ago, and, logically applying the same, deduce a result by which he might grace- fully as well as forcibly promulgate a policy of future 61 Ristory of Citerary Societies— continued procedure If, through the Debating Union the members have realized the Cortrce of ' thorough preparation; if they have learned o l-lcl err persona sentiments in abeyance while searching for causes; and, above all not to be satisfied with a mere cursory investigation, then the organization of the Debating ' " On:ofThV;otgest societies is the Philomathean. Its members are from all cSses of the variola courses, with membership nearly equally dw.ded between tie wo sexes. This society having a mixed membership, the hterary programs are singly diversified. Recitations, declamations, essays, orations and debates, ilr pe s I with instrumental and vocal music, usually enliven the evemng. As yet ne ther a Pitt nor a Demosthenes has proclaimed himself, but the members have ample opportunity for improvement and the benefit denved depends rn each %r trr;n74 " ' n position required of all students is thorough and comprehensive, but the literary society influences a student beyond the reach of anTnstructor. for it is a part of his social life. Voluntarv hterary work ha increased greatly through the requirements of the STUDENT Record, but it remains for the ifterary societies to accomplish still more. Support hterary societies and thus get your full share of benefit from the literary department. 62 Officers. President. Hai bert H. Howe ( Chairman Membership and New Student ' Committee ) JOSEPH H.

Fisher, University of California, ' 96, wrote to the University at Reno, making inquiries about the prospects of organizing a College Young Men ' s Christian Association here. This was followed on October 13th by a visit from one of the International ■ ' College Secretaries, Mr. C. C. Michener, who presented the aims and i objects of the College Association before a group of students. Ten men » agreed to form a College Y. M. C. A., and Hugh E. Crutcher, Normal, ' 97, was elected the first president. The first public meeting was held in Assembly Hall, on Sunday, May 7, 1S97, Mr. Crutcher presiding. The meeting was addressed by Mr. C. C. Michener, on " The Meaning and Purpose of the College Young Men ' s Christian Association. " At the close of the address, President Stubbs commended the new organization and oflfered to pay the expenses of a dele- gate to the Y. M. C. A. . j- . training conference at I. - - .1 Pacific Grove, to be held May 21-31. As a result of this offer, Charles G- Steiner and F. A. Bonham were sent as delegates to the conference. Early in the next college year, 1897-8, the Association was called upon to mourn the death of its new presi- dent, C. G. Steiner, Normal, ' q8, which occurred Novem- 66 Voung men ' s mmm Jfssociation— continued 0 ' . ber 4, 1897. Soon after the Association was re-organized and new officers elected from the Class of ' or, which had just entered college, as follows: President, F. A. Bonham; Vice-President, H. H. Howe, Jr. ; Secretary, J. W. Hall ; Treasurer, Robert O ' Neal. During this year the work progressed. This was the first time the Association was repre- sented in the college proper. Last Spring the Association determined to send two men to the Summer Conference, at Pacific Grove, and fifty dollars was raised for this purpose. The wisdom of this outlay has been fully justified in the increased efficiency of the work this year. The membership has increased more than three- fold, over twenty new men having joined since September. Meetings have been held every Sun- day afternoon. The aims of the Association are: — " To make the Association a factor in the moral and religious life of the University. " To promote the highest and most symmetrical development of manhood. " To guard students against temptations and perils which beset college men, both in the realm of the body and of the mind. " 67 V.

N. Y. W. C. A. -n-as organized March 25, 1898, with nineteen charter members. Its aim is best expressed as " young women working for young women. " It has been said that " One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. " Something of this spirit has crystallized into action in the Y. W. C. A., which has endeavored to infuse into the college life of the young women the sym- pathy and sense of comradship so much needed by those away from home. In order to reach personally all female students, notes of welcome have been sent out and from time to time socials and receptions given. The life of the association is, however, centered in the weekly meetings, which are made as in- teresting and helpful as may be, and union meetings with the Y. M. C A. have also been a prominent feature. The association has an efficient corps of committee workers, and a system of committees which embraces religious meetings, membership, social life, bible study, press and correspondence, missions, inter-collegiate relations and linances. The blending of the religious, social and business relations makes the work one of great interest to all members. The association has brought about the formation of many warm personal friendships among its members, who are thus enabled to mutually assist one another, and in this way make up in great part for the home advantages which might be missed otherwise. 71 „@. .a -€-0 •■©•■© •■©•• •© •■©. - •€■ • ©■•©■•©■• •€ • • ' ? • ■• •©■ C R.

Warne Phillips, chairman of the Faculty Committee on Athletics, an Athletic Asso- ciation comprising the entire student body, was organized in the University, and a semi-annual assessment was levied, to be paid at registration. This plan, which insures financial support, also insures the success of future athletics in the institution. Last season ' s foot " ball team made an enviable record for themselves, winning, as they did, four out of five games, and rolling up 121 points to their opponents ' 18. In baseball we have good material, but never having had a coach, we have never been able to develop that perfect team- work which is necessary to success on the diamond, as well as on the gridiron. In 1898 our team met that of Stanford on our own grounds, but the eagle of victory perched on the cardinal banner in the first inning, and remained there throughout the game. This year a schedule of class-games has been arranged, and consequently greater interest has been aroused in the national game. In track and field events we find that our records compare very favorably with those of older and larger institutions. We have labored under many disadvantages, such as lack of training and inability to have, as yet, many meets with outside institutions, yet in spite of these disad- vantages, we have many excellent records. Since the modern col- lege favors co-education, we believe in the development of the physical as well as the mental faculties of the fair sex. In the line of basket ball very little work was accomplished in the University until 1898, when our team played a match game with the young ladies representing the Uni- versity of California. Our girls made an excellent showing, but succumbed to the superior team-work and experience of their opponents. This year games have been arranged with both U. C. and Stanford. Our invigorating climate, and the natural strength and agility of our students are very favorable conditions for the development of athletics in Nevada, and with proper coaching and management we look forward to a high standard of work on the athletic field.

Every student, from major to " high private in the rear rank, " has performed his duties on drill ground or at recitation in tactics zealously; for he has felt a keen interest in the war, the need of a thoroughly equipped citizens ' army, and the debt that he owes the United States Government for the establishment of our military department and annual financial aid given to our University. Rightly does the student feel that he owes his government a debt only to be paid by thorough exercise of military duty. The very foundation of his University is based on an act of Congress— the Land Grant Act of 1862. This act was passed in the interest of higher education and by its means colleges of applied science have been established in nearly every State in the Union. The plan was to set aside State land, the interest from this land to go to the institution accepting the benefit of the Land Grant Act. By this act the Nevada State University receives the interest from ninety acres of land. By another act of Con- gress, the Morrill act of 1890, our University receives twenty- five thousand dollars annually. Among several conditions to be fulfilled by colleges accept- ing the benefits of these two acts, is o ne: " Theoretical and practical military instruction must be a part of the regular work of every male student. " It is in great part from this military instruction, this thor- ough equipment of a citizens ' army, to be called upon in time of need, that the government expects returns for the great sums of money expended on educational institutions. Military instruction, besides being of great public benefit, offers many personal advantages to the student. The regular out-of-door drill constitutes one of the best systems of physical training, while at the same time 105 military Department continued habits of obedience to lawful authority assist materially in the development of good loyal citizens. The recent war opened up remunerative employment to our students and graduates; the plan to increase our standing army offers still more opportunities. Fred M. Linscott, Agriculture, ' 96, Mines, ' 98, received the captaincy of the Nevada First Volun- teer Calvary. Fred E. Gignoux, ex. ' 99, is serving as first lieu- tenant of this same company. Robert M. Brambila, ' 97, was awarded the second lieutenancy in the Twenty-Third United States Infantry, and Chas. Murphy, ex. ' 00, is now serving as second lieutenant in the Twenty-Second United States Infantry. All these former students are with their companies at Manila, serv- ing their cruntry more advantageously because of their thorough acquaintance with military affairs. Many of our undergraduates also enlisted in volunteer companies and received appointments as sergeants and corporals on account of the military training which they had received at the University. The military department was organized into a corps under the name of the " Nevada State University Corps of Cadets. " The habitual formation is that of a battalion of infantry. Formerly a detachment has been drilled in the School of Artillery, but the pieces are so ancient that drill in this department has been sus- pended for this year. iQstruction is both theoretical and practical. The latter consists of squad, company and battalion drill, target practice with small arms, practice marches, guard duty, signaling and other exercises. The theoretical course consists of recitations in the United States Army Regulations in charge of cadet officers, and of lectures by the commandant on subjects relating to modern warfare. 106 © M©M©M©I©M©©PM 1© R.

Nearly ' all of these people are Quakers and the descendents of Quakers, and, strange as it may seem, their manners and cus- toms are very much the same as the manners and customs of their fathers and grandfathers were in the years gone by. An air of dreamy rest and peace pervades the whole vil- lage, and the " pomps and vanities " of the wicked outside world have no place in the hearts of these good people. It is true that everybody has a fairly accurate acquaintance with everybody else ' s affairs, but this serves only to draw them together in a closer union of brotherly love and kindness; and not as a hinge upon which hang doors leading to petty quarrels and disputes, tale-bearing and gossip, as such close association is apt to be. The girls in the old-time village are taught almost from infancy that fine clothes and bright colors are inventions of Satan, to lure the unwary into his power; while to curl their hair, or to spend more time than is absolutely necessary on their toilet, is an almost unpardonable sin. The boys never use profane lan- guage, are dutiful and respectful to their elders, wear somber-hued neckties, do not know what a football is, except by heresay, and would consider an up-to-date " football bang " as an exact imitation of the mode of hair-dressing most favored by his Satanic Majesty. Altogether, a quieter, more peaceful town could not be imagined, and on every side one hears the old time " thee " and " thou " used in conversation, while any- one who does not use this style of speech, is immediately recognized as a stranger. Lois Hillyer was a sweet, modest little maiden, who lived, not many years ago with her aged mother in this quiet village of stern Quakers. Now Lois was very beautiful, or, as they expressed it, was a " comely maiden, " and half the lads in the village were vying with each other to gain favor in her eyes, but she seemed to look upon them all with equal regard. Some of the poor youths were well-nigh driven to despair by the calm way m which she received their numerous attentions, with never so much as a sign of agitation, and some of their mothers, after a serious consultation, decided to remonstrate gently with the fair charmer for so unsettling the hearts and minds of their sons, and to request her to choose one of her admirers and marry him, 126 E Cittle QuaKcr $iniicr-continu«d and so set the minds of the others at rest. So one beautiful morning, three of these good ladies betook themselves to the Hillyer cottage and knocked gently at the door. Lois came and very politely ushered them into the stiff little parlor. After some preliminary conversation one of the ladies said rather constrainedly: " Lois, we have something to say to thee, child, which thee may not like; but really it is not seemly for one maiden to have so many lads about her as thee has, and we have come to advise thee to show more favor to one of them and less to all the rest, and to give them to understand that thee has chosen thy husband. " Lois looked rather astonished, then blushed, then smiled, and looking first at one then at another of the three ladies, said: " But which of them can I choose? Indeed, I care not more for one than for another, and they are all so kind to me that it would seem an ingratitude toward all the rest were I to prefer one above all the others. " Now each of the three ladies had a firm conviction in her heart that her own son would be chosen without hesitation, and each felt slighted that her darling was classed as no better than all the rest, so they very stiffly took their departure, and their report to the other good women of the town was: " It is a forward and headstrong lass and we must do what we may to influence our sons against her, for, verily, she seems to have neither heart nor soul. " Lois pondered much over the words of these good dames, and wicked though she knew it was, could not help smiling whenever she thought of their shocked faces and frigid adieus. She did not tell her mother of their visit, for her mind was rapidly failing and Lois did not care to vex her with her own anxieties. Just at this critical time, a young relative of one of the townsfolk returned from an. absence of several years in a neighboring city, bringing with him many of the airs and fashions of the city. He had dropped the Quaker " thee " and " thou " from his conversation, wore gayly colored neckties and allowed his hair to curl over his head at its own sweet will, parting it with mathematical precision in the center of his forehead, into a genuine " football bang. " The good Quakers frowned upon this young man and called him sacrilegious, and kept their daughters sedulously from his company; but he was in nowise abashed by their evident dis- approval, and soon became one of Lois Hillyer ' s most ardent admirers, while that demure maiden certainly did not dis- courage his attentions. Before long she showed a marked preference for Rodger Webster, for this was the new-comer ' s name, and plunged the other youths of the village into the depths of dark despair, and so, at this juncture, not only the ladies of the village, but also the minister, felt called upon to remonstrate with the refractory damsel. Now the minister was a man about thirty-five years of age, tall, spare and 127 E Cittle QuaRer Sinner-continued sallow, pnd he cherished in his bony bosom the fond hope that Lois might one day become his helpmeet, and he could not bear to think of her as enconraging Satan in the form of this ungc dly young man. Accordingly he set out, accompanied by the same three matrons whom Lois had so scandalized upon a former occasion, to plead with her and show her the error of her ways. Now, as it happened, Roger Weston had only the day before given Lois a large and handsome dog, saying that her home was too secluded and that she needed a protector. She was not as yet aware of the fact that tliis same dog was endowed with a very fierce hatred of strangers, for to her and Rodger he had shown only a most friendly and well- mannered disposition. But when the minister, accompanied by his three faithful parishioners, appeared at the gate, they were greeted by a deep-toned growl which sent the ladies back several yards in great trepidation. But the holy man, knowing that it would not do for him to lower himself in the eyes of his flock by showing any fear, opened the gate and advanced a step within, glaring at the animal meanwhile. The dog looked contemptuously at him for an instant and then started toward him, growling ominously and showing his teeth. The good man immediately decided that " discretion was the better part of valor " and fled precipitately, leaving the large portion .of the skirts of his best black coat in the jaws of the awful dog. Rather perturbed and out of breath he returned to the three ladies, and they held a counsel of war at a safe distance from the domains of the canine monster, but, as they dared not approach the house and had no other means of reaching Lois, they were forced to defer their worthy purpose until a more propitious occasion. On the next Sunday the subject of the thoughts of nearly the whole village came demurely to church in a modest gray gown, but, as she entered the church, many people looked at her, then stared, then rubbed their eyes and looked again. Surely the effrontry of this damsel was unparalleled— she had dared to enter the house of God with a bright pink ribbon about her neck ! She seemed very serene and unconscious, however, and took her accustomed seat in the congregation while minister and people fairly gasped at her audacity. The minister preached loud and long on the wickedness of vanitj-, but his eloquence had no visible effect upon Lois, and he immediately decided that a private appeal to her feelings and self- respect would be the only means of reaching her. But how could he obtain a private interview when she was guarded by a dog, which, to him, seemed more dangerous even than a dragon. He finally decided to make a strenuous effort to catch her after the services and to walk home with her, or, at least, as near to her home as the respect for the dog would permit, and accordingly hurried out of the church and was almost at her side, when Roger Weston stepped briskly up and, bowing very politely to her, walked on at her side, taking her hymn books and 128 E Cittic QuaKcr Sinncr-continuca showing her many little attentions of which the crude youths of the village were totally incapable. All these things the sallow divine noted and treasured up in his heart to chide her with as soon as he could gain an opportunity, and he firmly resolved to make an opportunity at all hazards. That night he dropped a very formal note in the postoffice, informing Miss Htllyerthat he was " very desirous of speaking with her regarding the welfare of her immortal soul, " and also recounting the incident of her dog ' s late ferocious attack upon his person, and ending with the statement that he, in company with some of the good women of the parish, would again seek an interview with her on the following Wednesday, trusting that her very savage dog would be securely tied up or otherwise restrained. Lois, we are grieved to say, burst into a peal of merry laughter when she read his stilted account of hei- dog ' s misbehavior, but sat down and wrote him a very dutiful and contrite note in reply, saying in conclusion: " I will promise thee that neither my dog nor anything else shall trouble thee, if thou comest on Wednesday. ' ' " Well, " thought the minister, " already she showeth some signs of forsaking her unregenerate ways, and, perchance, we may yet be in time to save. " On the appointed day the four good people again set out on their self-appointed missionary work. They reached the Hillyer home, and with faces drawn down into varying degrees of severe sanctimoniousness, walked up the neatly kept path, untroubled by even a suggestion of canine ferocity. In answer to an imperious knock from the heavy knuckles of the minister, a little girl came to the door- They stared at her for a moment in some surprise, and then gravely inquired for Lois. The child seemed rather overawed by the presence of so many austere-look- ing grown folks, but managed to say that Lois wasn ' t there, but had left a note for them. " Not here ! " the four echoed in chorus, but the little one had run to fetch the note. The worthy divine, to whom the letter was addressed, hastily tore it open, and, as he read its contents, his face grew longer and his jaw dropped, and he soon handed the offending paper to the ladies without a word of comment or explana- tion. It read: " Drar Friends: — I have kept my promise that neither my dog nor anything else shoold trouble you if you came on Wednesday. I am at present in the city, leaving Roger ' s little sister to care for my mother during my absence. Thank you for your concern regarding the welfare of my soul; I shall probably return to your loving care by Sunday next and I doubt not that my soul will be ably cared for. Lois Hillyer Weston. " " Lois Hillyer Weston ! " cried one of the good ladies, " then she hath indeed yielded to the tempter! " " And how unseemingly is the wording of her letter, " said another; " she hath already adopted his ungodly style of speech ! " " Such unbecoming levity concerning the dog, too! " chimed the third, and many and various were the expressions of their " holy anger and pious grief. " But the minister said not a word and walked slowly back to his home, where, taking the wreck of his best coat from the peg behind the door, he ruefully sur- veyed its tattered skirts and reflected how he had planned to have the refractory Lois, as his wife, spend a long afterncon restoring the injured beauty, while he 129 H CUtle QuaKer $inner-continu«a discoursed upon moral and religious topics. Then with a deep sigh he took from a shelf a needle and thread, some patches, and a pair of dull scissors, and sat him- self down to repair as best he might the damage wrought by the dog. He told himself that he was very sorrowful because Lois had placed her immortal soul in such danger, and he was fully convinced that there were no sel- fish motives in his anxiety for her. And then he sighed again-poor man-at the thought of his aching heart and his blighted young life. He surely was a sadder man-for the time being, at least-but he was also and for all time an infinitely wiser one. W- M . iEifeiM™-! 130 JI strange Psycbological Episode. Emmet Derby Boyle. HE year 1952 was a memorable one in the University of Nevada for the many progressive strides made by that institution. The beginning of the fall term found the Electrical department in possession of the handsome edifice which it has since occupied ; the lawn in front of Lincoln Hall was at last finished ; a more artistic disposition was made of the clotheslines and woodpiles, which had for so many years made the campus unsightly, and a municipal ordinance had been passed making all live-stock found on University ground liable to confiscation by the dining hall. Everyone remembers the enormous Freshman class that brought with it the promising foot-ball material which made it possible for us to win the United States intercollegiate pennant, and later to send two men to England in the All-American Eleven. And probably no one has forgotten the disastrous defeat of the Sophomores in the cane rush when the victorious Freshmen, not content with the immediate capture of the stick, added the indignity of photographing their vanquished and crestfallen opponents, bound and shoeless. Of the 200 snap shots of this memor- able occurrence which were scattered broadcast throughout the school, one is still in my possession, and it recalls the interesting events which grew out of the rush, and one of which I shall endeavor to chronicle. On September 26, 1952, the date of the opening of this narrative, the word was quietly passed around among the Sophomores that they should meet in the cemetery west of the campus at a specified time on the following night. At the witching hour of i a. m , therefore, 200 manly forms shed their pajamas, arrayed hemselves and quietly stole forth from the silent precincts of Lincoln and Dewey Halls, along the netting of the tennis courts back of the parade ground, to the rendezvous in the graveyard. Bingham, the class president rapped with his pipe on a tombstone to call the shivering assembly to order. " Gentlemen, " he said, " the ignominy of inglorious defeat rankles in my breast as it must in yours. The Fresh- men outnumber us two to one. In strategy lies our only hope, for we can accomplish nothing by force. If any man has a plan to submit for avenging us let him spit it out, only don ' t get 133 B Strange Psycbologlcal episode— continued boisterous about it, for we can ' t afford to be caught here red-handed. " The first speaker had just risen in response to this call when the moon came out from behind the clouds. Now this is no very unusual thing, but, happening when it did, it was instrumental in preventing the graduation of twenty men, m the loss of a valuable scientific discovery to the world, and in the replacing of the unpicturesque old Mining Building by the handsome modern structure, " Jackson Hall, " which now graces the front of the campus. At anv rate the moonlight disclosed the figure of Professor Von Beber— late of Leyden and newly appointed head of the department of physics and chemistry— just between the gate posts and navi- gating towards the meeting. The quaint German figure, with its long cape and high hat, left no doubt in the minds of the assemblage as to the identity of their disturber. " What in Hades is that old goat doing around here, anyhow ! Get down ! Grf down you fellows, and hit him low when he gets in reach, " growled Bingham, as he flattened out behind a tombstone, and the unsuspecting pedagog was a moment later tacked neatly, thrown down, and sat upon. His efforts to remonstrate were promptly checked with a handkerchief gag, and he was unceremoniously dragged into a receiving vault, where they left him. " Well, here ' s a ' nice muddle, " said Bingham, when their visitor had been disposed of. " We ' ve got this blessed Dutch Elephant on our hands, and if we let him loose its all off with us because he knows just who we are, and he isn ' t apt to overlook the firm but kind treatment he just received at our hands. Confound a night hawk, anyhow ! What do you suppose he was doing? " No one knew, and no one cared much, so long as they had the problem of his disposal to work out, and it was finally de- cided that Bingham should attempt to terrorize him . So put- ting on a bold exterior, the president stalked into the vault, untied the captive ' s gag, and in stentorian, though slightly tremulous tones, began: " Van Beber, it becomes my duty as the presiding officer of the assemblage into which you have just projected your undesiraljle presence, and which in session recognizes no rank save that bestowed by itself, to inform you, sir, that on one condition only will we refrain from visiting on you the punishment which your offense so richly deserves. Further, to assure you that non-acquies- cence to our demands will entail dire consequences, whose seriousness is not to be underestimated. Do you understand ? The professor was not awed by this grandiloquent outburst, but on the contrary, greeted it with a storm of righteous indignation, and Bingham weakened. " Oh, hang it, professor ! 134 H Strange Psycbological episode— continued What I just said is rot, of course, we ' re all " 55 " and we ' re out here trjdng to devise ways and means for getting back at the Freshies. If we ' d stopped to think, we ' d have let j ' ou pass unmolested, but we acted too deucedly soon, and now that we have you we can ' t let you go, because you ' ll squeal on us. Oh, I say ! Why can ' t you help ns along yourself — you were a fellow, yourself, once ; come, now, just forget that we sat on your neck and join us — you can add tone to this affair, if you will. In vain the professor declared that further parley was but adding insult to injury and that Bingham and his friends should smart for the indignities that they offered him. But Bingham stood firm, and the prisoner at last succumbed to his earnest entreaties, and was led forth much bedraggled, but pacified and sworn to stand by the grimly, expectant gathering which emerged from behind the tombstones like dark shad- ows to hear his word of greeting. " Gentlemen, " he said, " my forcible introduction to you just now was quite an unexpected pleasure. It was not my intention to become in any manner mixed up in your aiTairs, but your cause appeals to me, and I shall consent to lend you aid of a scientific nature. Appoint twenty of your number to meet me in my laboratory to-morrow, and I shall submit a proposition to them. " With this the meeting adjourned. II. The committee was duly appointed and met the professor in his laboratory at dusk on the following day. After exacting from each of them a solemn oath, never to reveal, until they had his permission, a word of what they heard or saw, he began : " Gentlemen: No doubt the idea must have presented itself to you— some of you at least — that a definite relationship exists between the phenomena of actual magnetism and the so-called personal magnetism, known as mesmerism . ' ' " Try and follow me for a few moments and I will prove to you that it is left for me to revolutionize the modern theories of the relatives between mind and matter. I tell you that thought is a purely mechan- ical operation, the direct mechanical outcome of material influences ; that mesmerism is the real overcoming of a real material force by a stranger real material force. But how is this thought, this actual force to be transmitted from brain to brain ? Ah, true, you cannot conceive of such a thing effected by mechanical means, but I will surprise you by showing you not only how it is done, but how you can with my assistance do it yourself. You will grant that thought is transmissible, presumably through 135 J strange Psycbological episode— continu«a the nerves to the muscles— thought is even transmissible through the air if the thinker surrounds himself with the proper ethereal conditions. This is mesmer- ism, and I can supplj ' the proper conditions for the transmission of thought " " But how? Why thought is a form of motion which is transmissible by either waves or by a condition of either stress just as the energies of light and electricity are conveyed through their conductors to produce their effect when they are converted into some form of sensible energy at the end. " The professor was talking rapidly and impressively — " What we want is a conductor of thought and, gentlemen, I have it ! " " It is an ethereal condition which can be produced by electrical means— not a common electrical current, you under- stand, but by a modified form of current, which is obtained by passing the current from an ordinary dynamo through a secret solution that absorbs certain objectionable waves just as certain media absorb certain light waves, leaving the waves I desire free to act. " " A condition of stress corresponding exactly to the field of force about a magnet can be set up about any one upon whom this current is allowed to act precisely as the ordina ry current is apphed in the charging of a magnet, and this is my media for the transmission of thought vibrations. " I should make of each of you a temporary mesmerist by charging you with my modified current, to hold the power until the ethereal equilibrium about you is restored, which will come about slowly, requiring several hours. You are to obtain your effect by concentrating your mind on the thought with which you wish to imbue your victim. If his will is stronger than yours you will be overcome while you are both in the field of force, but you will have the advantages of premeditated con- centration of the thought and will probably have no difficulty in instilling it into the befuddled brain of a man laboring under the excitement of the rush. " " Is the application of my principle to your friends, the enemy, obvious? " The committee looked at one another in speechless amazement. So they were to mesmerize the Freshmen ! But was what the professor claimed true? It was uncanny enough anyhow, and they all felt a strange aversion to submit- ting to the experiment. The professor ringing up the mechanical building on the telephone aroused them and he ordered the dynamo started. It was now quite dark, and the incandescent lights about the room brightened up, but the professor turned them out and switched the current through a long closed box which lay against the wall. A peculiar odor was noticable which he declared was due to the decomposing fluids in the tank which bubbled merrily. He lit a match and held it over the box ; there was a slight explosion which 136 E Strange Psychological episode— continued made the committee jump, but they were assured that it was nothing but the gases from the solution and of no importance ; he then stepped into a large spiral into which the wires were wound as they came from the box. Remaining there for a few moments he stepped out, turned off the current and, walking up to Bingham, grasped him by the arms. Bingham gasped and sank lifeless into a chair. The professor was as good as his word. " Brace up, old man, " he said to his victim, " you ' re all right. What do you think ? ' ' " I don ' t think at all, " said Bingham. " At least I didn ' t when you had me, and I sincerely hope that you ' ll just keep your hooks off of me in the future. Ye gods, what a case of funk. " " Right you are, " said Von Beyer. " And when you meet the Freshmen you must think for them. Verstehen sie ? " " When you need me, gentlemen, I am here. " The committee walked home together in silence. - -A- -X- Four days later the early morning breezes gently swayed the pendant eiSgy of the class of " ' 56 " from the top of Morrill Hall, and the first period bell failed to ring, because when eight o ' clock came, five hundred struggling under-classmen absorbed the attention of the entire school. At first the Sophomores were scattered like chaff before the wind, by the furi- ous onslaughts of the Freshmen, but they never for a moment relinquished their hold on the dummy, which fifty of their number had fallen on as it reached the ground. But every moment some Freshman would waver under an uncontrollable weakness, and submit to being bound with hardly a struggle. In vain did the howling mob of white-hatted Juniors urge their weakening proteges to pull themselves together. In vain the Freshmen coeds cut the bonds which held them; they lay about the lawns, tied hand and foot, inert and spirit- less, until a few light-footed Sophs tore the dummy from the Freshies clinging to it, and hurried it away to the place of security it occupied until the class day of " ' 55 ' when it appeared and precipitated a rush in the gym, the like of which had not been seen for nearly sixty years. The Freshmen were then piled up artistically on the grass and photographed but the plate was shattered in the terrific explosion which a moment later wrecked the mining building, killed Professor Von Blantaube, and destroyed the beautiul bronze statue of ex-President Stubbs in front of Morrill Hall. Twenty men went the next day to the president ' s office and admitted that they knew that Professor Von Blantaube had an explosive gas in the laboratory, but, refusing to tell further of what they knew of the mystery, were suspended from school for one year. No doubt ever existed in the minds of the committee as to the cause of poor Professor Von Beber ' s death. The small explosion which took place on the day when he addressed them was the forerunner of the greater eruption which destroyed the Mining Building and killed the most profound thinker of the age. Up to this day the mystery had not got beyond them. I ' 7 I40 Cbe editors ' £«mr Box. Editor Artemisia.

Glancing at the pitiable object she went into the liquor shop, brought the barkeeper out, and, pointing to the unconscious gentle- man on the sidewalk, said: " Here, your sign has fallen down; pick it up and take it inside.

Her merest look made his nerves dance with joy, and as he stood before her his palpitating heart sent the blood pulsing through his brain in a torrent which made the formation of the consecutive thoughts which his trembling lips would utter almost impossible. " Ambolena, " he said, sinking gracefully on one knee, " I love you, madly, passionately ! You are my star of hope that I see before me always. In the morning I think of naught else but you; at noon your image is before me; all day, all night I think of you, dream of you— of you alone. Dearest, will you be my wife?

Now I, for one, move that each and every one of us make it a point to revolutionize affairs; that we accept no invitation from the boys — but be independent, and go to the socials and other functions in a body — thus demon- strating that we are no longer in need of a male escort. Nor that we will longer be so foolish as to sit idly by, patiently waiting for some mean fellow to take his time in asking us to go with him. I, for one, refuse to put up with this old-fashioned custom. " " O, Enid ! How perfectly right you are; and did that horrid wretch really say ' all-fired stiff ' and ' prosy ' too ?
