While in many respects it is not so preten- tious a book as those which are produced by the larger Eastern universities, we feel that no apology is necessary. It represents the work of Nevada college students, was written and pub- lished and will be sold in our State. The mission of the annual is to in some de- gree describe and illustrate the various phases of student life as they exist in the University of Nevada. Inasmuch as we succeed in this our object is accomplished. pmrrnnffiTs ■ m % Alfred Meebitt Smith, E(litc r-i!i-Chief George Thair Saxton, Asscoiate Lester R. Merrill, Illustrator W. F.

His early education was received at the Ashland High School, where he graduated m 1868. From here he entered the classical course of the Ohio Wesleyan Duiversity 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 the duty. Throughout his college course he was noted or his close application and marked ability Recogtjizing his ability the faculty of the O. W. U elected him tutor of 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 elected president of Baldwin University at Bera, Ohio. During the eight years of his administration the affairs of the Univer- sity were in a vei y 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 the Library, were also built and remain as marks of Dr Stubbs ' untiring efiort and pei ' severance. 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 philnsophy and literature m the University of Berlin. After his return to Ohio he was elected president ' of the College Association of Ohio In 1895 he accepted the presidency of the University of Nevada. Dr Stubbs brought with him to this position a wide experience in educational w irk During his six 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 institutions 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 recognized 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 ashington November, ' 95, he discussed " Admission Requirements " and the " Correlation of Subjects in the Carrioala of Colleges of Agriculture and Mechanic .Irts. " In 1898 he was elected First Vice President of the same association, and in November. 1898, addressed the College Section on " Some Recent Changes in the Theory of Higher Education " In January, 1900, he attended several important conventions in the East, delivering some eloquent addresses before those conventions. Dr. Stubbs has always devoted himself to the higher interests of the institu- tion over which he presides, developing it from a mere rudimentary beginning to a college of which Nevadans may well be proud. He has shown tact, energy, enthusiasm and sound business judgment, and his potent infll ence, always for good, has been felt both by the students and by the community at large. 9 Beard of Regents HON.

I I 19 Bistory of tbe University of Revada BY ROBERT LEWERS I J-5N 1810, amidst the green mountains of Vermont, a man was .• ' .•t born whose destiny it was to make possible the founding X ' 3 of the universities of agriculture and mechanic arts now ■ ■■ I ' I " 3 scattered far and wide throughout our great country, and ' I ' 3 his name — Justin Smith Morrill — will be long revered bv those who know him and his work. Senator Morrill was the author of the Act of Congress of Jvily 2, 1862, which provided for the donation to each State of thirty thousand acres of land for each representative in the national body of lawmakers. By virtue of this Nevada received ninety thousand acres of land, and the money arising from the sale of this land is placed in an irreducible fund known as the " University Fund — Ninety Thousand Acre Grant, " which now amounts to about $93,000. The principal is invested in United States and Nevada State bonds, and the interest derived from this investment is to be used for the support of the University and is available for instruction only. By the Act of July 4, 1866, Nevada was granted a tract of land equal to seventy-two entire sections for the establishment and main- tenance of a university. The money arising from the sale of these lands is placed in an irreducible fund known as the " State Univer- sity Fund, " and amounts at present to about $36,000, invested principally in Nevada State 4 per cent bonds. The income arising from both of the investments amounts to $6,500 yearly, the exce. ' s above the 4 per cent being derived from interest on deferred land payments. Probably 80 per cent of all the land has been .sold. As a further evidence of the great value of Senator Morrill ' s services to the universities we have but to chronicle the fact that he was the author of the Act of Congress of August 30, 1890, appro- priating the sum of $15,000 for the year ending July, 1890, for the more complete endowment of each agricultural and mechanical college, said sum to be increased at the rate of $1,000 a year until it reached the maximum of $25,000 per year. The income from this source is limited solely to purposes of instruction. In the Constitutional Convention of 1864 a very considerable portion of the time was de-,, voted to the discussion of educational matters, and especial interest was taken in the establishment of a School of Mines and Mechanical 20 MORRILL HALL l)i$tory of the University of nevada- continued Arts. The constitutional lawmakers laid a solid foundation for a complete public school system. Nevada, by Act of March 19, 1865, created a Board of Regents consisting of Governor H. G. Blasdel, Secretary of State C. N. Noteware and State Superintendent A. F. White, and the first meeting of the Board was held on November 16, 1865. The Act pro- vided for the location of the University in Washoe county, but did not appro- priate anything for the erection of buildings or the puchaae of a site. None of the income arising from the ninety thousand acre grant was available for these purposes, and the Board therefore called upon the citizens of the western counties to donate enough money for this work. It is recorded that the com- mittee on donations held a meeting in Washoe City late that year, but in the end nothing was done However, if the writer mistakes not, Hon. Theodore Winters at that time offered to donate a liberal amount of land for a University site. Cbc University at eiko In 1874, the Legislature having made provision therefor, a Board of Regents consisting of Hon. P. H. Clayton, Hon. Jerry Schooling and Hon. S. H. Day had the honor of making the fir -t real start toward founding the school intended by the fundamental act by opening a preparatory school at Elko and employing Hon. David R. Sessions, a graduate of Princeton and a very worthy gentleman, as principal of the school. It is a matter of record that the Board authorized the preparation of a course of study for this school, but the register is mi,ssing and we are in the dark as to what it was. It 1875, under the Regency of the HonorableS C. C. Stevenson, W. C. Dovey and Alfred Helm the University was still further improved by the addition of a dormitory building. In 1879 the names of Hon. T. N. Stone, Hon. J. S. Mayhugh and Hon. W. W. Bishop appear as members of the 21 ■ !- -- ' -. »!Mfe-v. ■i-l. If: t : .am STEWART HALL LINCOLN HALL l l$tcrv of tbe University of nevada— contmud Board iiiid Professor W. C. Dovey, a veteran teacher of Nevada, wa.s principal of the school. The course of study to be pursued was de- fined as " such as would enable the student to get a first grade teacher ' s certificate, together with Ixjok- keeping, Latin and music. " In Decem- ber of the same year it was ordered that mineralogjs assaying and vSpanish be taught, although it does not appear that these subjects were actually taught until ( )ctober, 1SS2, when Hon. Jules E. (jignoux, a mining engineer and a graduate of Freiburg Universitj ' , was elected to take charge of the Depart- ment of Mining Engineering. At this time Hon. T. N. Stone was Principal, and in 1883 we find Hon. E. W Farrington acting as Principal. The attendance at Elko appears from the best obtainable records to have been as follows: 1874, 12 students; 1875,16; 1876,27; 1877, 30; 1878, 35; 1879, 24; 1880, 25; 1881, 29; 1882, 31; 1883, 30; 1884, 34. The Department of Mining Engineering showed an attendance of nine students in 1882 and ten the next year. On account of the difficulty of securing students at Elko, principally b} ' rea.son of the great distances to be travelled, the work was somewhat slow and discouraging alike to Regents and instructors. But, considering everything, we believe that they are to be congratulated for their persistence in keeping the school open all these years and thus blazing the way for the more successful school of the future, which the Elkoites are still loyally upholding. tbe University at Reno The Legislature having paved the way for the removal of the Universitj ' to a more thickly populated region of the State, and the people of Washoe having expressed a willingness to give a large bonus, it was decided to locate it in Reno. Washoe agreed to pay Elko $20,000 and to donate $5,000 toward the erection of build- ings. In June, 1885, Regents J. H. Rand, L. W. Getchell and H. G. ' 22 THE COTTAGE MECHANICAL BLILDUN ' G Ristory of the ilniversity of newaa— continued % Shaw purchashed from J. N. Evans ten acres of land for $1,250, and obtained on option for ten additional acres. Bids for the erection of the Main Building, now called Morrill Hall in honor of Senator Morrill, were called for and the contract awarded to Burke Bros, of Reno for $12,700. The corner stone of the build- ing was laid by the Grand Lodge of Masons on September 12, 1885, and the building completed February 15, 1886. Hon. Frank E. Fielding of Virginia City was elected Professor of Assaying and Metallurgy, and Professor A. H. Willis of the Virginia High School was placed in charge of the Mining Department, while Professor J. W. McCammon of Palisade was elected Principal. The school was opened 9n March 31st with an attendance of thirty students and continued under the charge of these instructors until March, 1887, when the new Board closed the school to complete the building. In June, 1887, Leroy D. Brown, School Commissioner of Ohio, was elected President of the Nevada State University. A course of study providing for schools of Liberal Arts, Agriculture and Mines was formulated, and Professor Walter M. Miller of the University of Ohio placed in the chair of Natural Sciences. Miss H. K. Clapp of Carson City was placed in charge of the Preparatory Department. In December the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station was installed on the University grounds, with President Brown as Director and Professor Miller as Botanist and Chemist. The attend- ance this year increased to seventy-five, twenty-eight being in the University proper. In August, 1888, Professor R. D. Jackson of the University of Califor- nia was chosen to the chair of Natural Sciences and Mining, Miss Kate N. T. Tupper of Portland, Or egon, was placed in charge of the Normal School, and in March, 1889, the Military Department was installed with First Lieutenant A. C. Ducat, U. S. A., as Commandant. During 23 THE GYM HA rCH STATION l i$torv of tbe Uiilv:r$itv of nevada- continued this year Professor J. W. Phillips of Princeton College, Professor W. S. Devol and Professor Fred H. Hillnian were added to the Experi- ment Station staff. The attendance in 1888-89 was 143, forty being in the University courses. In November, 1889, President Brown resigned and in January, 1890, Dr. Stephen A. Jones of Dartmouth College was elected Presi- dent. The attendance in 1889-go was: Univer- sity, 37; Normal, 36; Preparatory, 64; total, 137. Miss Tupper having resigned, Mrs. Mary W. Emery of Peoria, Illinois, was elected Principal of the Normal School, and First Lieutenant John M. Neall, Fourth United States Cavalr} was detailed by the War Department to succeed Lieutenant Ducat. In August, 1890, Robert Lewers of Dayton, Nevada, was placed in charge of the Commercial School and chosen Registrar. In September, 1891, Professor Thomas W. CowgiU was placed in charge of the Department of English Language, and Mr. Richard Brown elected Instructor in Mechanical Arts. October 5th of the s me year Professor H.Thurtell of the Michigan Agricultural College was appointed Professor of Mathematics. In the Military Depart- ment Lieutenant Neall was succeeded by First Lieutenant William R. Hamilton, Fifth Artillery, U. vS. A., who upon the expiration of his detail was followed by First Lieutenant Elmer W. Hubbard, Seventh United States Artillery, who at the breaking out of the Spanish-American war was called to the scene of action, leaving the University for a time without a West Point military instructor. Mr. A. W. Cahlan, ' 96, was then placed in charge for a time. On the re- turn of the First Nevada Volunteers from the Philippines Captain F. M. Linscott was chosen Commandant. . In 1891 Professor N. E. Wilson was elected Chemist of the Ex- periment Station, and Professor R. H. McDowell succeeded Professor Devol in the Department of Agriculture. In June, 1894, President S. A. Jones resigned and Dr. Joseph E. Stubbs of Berea, Ohio, was elected as his successor. Without being specific as to dates the changes in and additions to the Faculty from that time have been as follows: Professor James E. Church of the Michigan University placed in charge of the chair of Latin; Professor Laura DeLaguna of the University of California cnosen to the chair 24 l)i$tory of the University of nevada- continued of Modern Languages; Professor Charles P. Brown of the University of Nevada placed in the Department of Mathematics, and upon Pro- fessor R. D. Jackson ' s resignation in January, igoo, given charge of the chair of Mining and Metallurgy; Professor Anna H. Martin of the University of Nevada and also of Leland Stanford Jr. University, elected Professor of History; Rev. Samuel Unsworth placed in charge of the chair of Greek; Miss Maud Wheeler of the Universit} of Ne- vada and of the University of California placed in charge of the De- partment of Mathematics; Professor George Blessing chosen to take charge of the Department of Mechanical Engineering; Professor George Louderback placed in charge of the chair of Physics and Chemistry, vice Dr. J. W. Phillips, resigned; Miss Stella Uinscott, temporarily in charge of work in Latin during Professor Church ' s absence; Professor E. B. Kennedy of Cornell in charge of Botan} and Horticulture; Professor P. P. Frandsen of the LTniversity of Nevada and of Harvard, in charge of work in Zoology and Bacteri- ology; Mr. J. M. Wilson, late State Engineer of Nebraska and Assist- ant in Agrostology in the United States Department of Agriculture, placed at the University or rather at the Experiment Station for the purpose of preliminary work in irrigation in Nevada. This is the usual favor conferred bj the Department at Washington on the Station, and Mr. Wilson ' s long experience in engineering work in Nebraska gives promise of a bright future for irregation in Nevada. While Mr. Wilson is attached to the Station, he is a Government officer and his salary is paid by the general Government. The plant of the University has increased in fourteen years from one building to eight substantial brick buildings, and its site from ten acres to thirty-seven. The attendance on the University since 1890 has teen as follows: 1890-91, 163; 1891-92, 154; 1892-93, 184; 1893-94, 189; 1894-95, 265; 1895-96, 335; 1896-97, 347; 1897-98, 335; 1898-99, 333; 1899-00, 316. The registration in the University courses leading to degrees for the years above listed has been as follows: 48, 45, 60, 84, 135, 172, 178, 179 and 176. 25 School of Dberal JTrts and Science BY MISS STELLA M. LINSOTT HIS conrs3 leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The stiidies include 1 in the couri e tonn the best Ijasis for a liberal edncatiou. It is extensive and complete ami by means of its elective system offers students a con- siderable range in choice of study. The student is allowed to select any subject for his major and to elect others accordingly. The most of the work for the Freshman year is prescribed, including Latin, English, College Algebra, Solid Geometry, General Chemistry and European History, but as tlie stu leit advances lie is permitted to elect many of tliem. In the two years of Latin required in the course aie included selections from Grid, Horace, Vetgil, Cicero, Sallust Catullus and Tihullus, or fiom other authors substituted for these, Rnman Literature, Mythology and Latin Composition. Latin may be elected in the Junior and Senior years when the more difficult authors are read. English is required throughout the course. English authors of all periods, beginning with the Old English and extending down to the writers of the nine- teenth century, are critically read, particularly the masterpieces of the literature. The writing of essays and forensics and the study of the literature receive especial attention. The literary societies are of valuable assistance to this department, affording the students opportunity for practice in speaking and debating. The other subjects required in the first year may be dropped at the end of the year or may be made members of a group, when they are more thoroughly and extensively studied. In the Sophomore year in addition to Latin and English, Philosophy, Politcal Science and Botfjny are required. In the Junior year, besides English. Physics is required, and in the Senior year Logic, Inductive and Deductive, and Political Economy. Of the elective studies Greek, French and German may be taken throughout the course. In the Greek course Homer, Lycias, Plato, Eschylus, Euripides, Sophocles and selections from the (jreek Testament are studied together with .Greek Grammar, Prose Composition and the History of Greece. In the German and French courses the representative authors of the different periods of their literature are carefully lead. If Latin and Greek are chosen as a group, the course becomes almost as extensive and complete as the classical course in the best colleges The ancient oi modern languages or English, as their study may be extended throughout tin course, are most suitable as major subjects ot groups, while the extensive field oi electives in the Junior and Senior years offeis a variety of subjects for minor mem- bers of groups. This list includes History, Science and Art of Teaching, Ethios, Physchology, Qualitative Analysis, Quantitative Cliemistry, Practical Meclianics, Analytical and Descriptive Geometry, Integral and Differential Calculu . Gei.erai Geology, Anatomy and Physiology, Bot;,ny and liacienology. The Science and Art of Teaching affords an opporlunity to study tl e history of education and of educational systems and doctrines. Il elected in the Junior and Senior years the student is granted an unlimited State certificate of High School grade. Such a course makes the University graehiates e.speciaiiy tilted for the higher positions in the public school service 26 Independent JI$$ociation |ARLY in September, 1893, when the University was young and only a two or t hree buildings graced the campus, a number of Seniors I rooming in the third story of the Mining Building conceived the I idea of editing a college paper. I At that time the third floor of the Mining Building was the hlUlililliUlUlillid boys ' dormitory. It would be difficult for any students now living in spacious, well lighted and splendidly equipped Lincoln Hall rooms to conceive the advance our University has made in the matter of student boarding facilities. The old Mining Building dormitory, once seen, was something to be long remem- bered. Some beds were on the floor; clothes, books, razor strops and broken chairs were always scattered about in happy confusion. The boys often slept four in a bed, and sometimes they did not sleep at all. The latter condition prevailed when some practical joker would introduce such trifles as ice water, watermelon rinds aad cockle burrs between the sheets, or make the night hideous with bum cornet solos and rag time songs — but I forget, that was before the curse of coon ditties infested the land. Amid such surroundings the Independent Association was born. The Seniors who wanted to dabble in college journalism went to see the Board of University Regents and told them of the plan, hoping to receive encouragement. The Regents said little or nothing at first, but later on forbade the aspiring young journalists to waste any time and ink in getting out a college paper. This squelched the subject for a time, but an ambition to equal other colleges in this respect caused them to formulate a scheme for evading the edict of the Regents. The subject was discussed at a meeting of the Adelphi, which was at that time the leading literary society of the school— because it was the only one and all the students were members — and it was decided to publish a paper in no way connected with the University, but nevertheless bearing mainly on student life at the University of Nevada. Twenty students met in the basement of the Congregational Church that night and formed the Independent Association. They christened the paper The Student Recced. Charles Magill, ' 94, was elected president of the association, and Mri F. C Frey was the first business manager. A contract to print the paper was awarded to the Nevada State Journal, one of the chief clauses of the contract con- taining the word " secrecy, " and the first number made its appearance on October 19, 1893. The editors since that time are here givea in regular order: F. H. Saxton, ' 95; O. T. Williams, ' 96; J. M. L. Henry, ' 96; George R. Bliss, ' 97; J. J. Sulhvan, ' 98; H. H. Dexter, ' 99; A. M. Smith, ' 00. Last year the Independent association established the custom of publishing a college annual.

" 36 i Ristory of tbe Senior Class THE history of the Class of igoo, though it may be a recital of those trials, tribulations, victories and defeats which mark the career of an ordinary college class, contains a strain of original- ity. However much it may be open to criticism, we shall cherish it as one of our most sacred memories. The Class of 1900 was organized in the early part of September, 1896. On that da} upward of fifty Freshmen assembled and elected officers. C. R. Ford was elected president. The introduction of the Class of. ' 00 to the Class of ' 99 occurred on the campus early one morning. Several of the Soph boys had donated portions of their best " Sunday " clothes with which was fashioned an effigy of a Freshman. When this dummy was dis- covered hanging to an electric light wire, a lively struggle ensued, but the Freshmen finally succeeded in tearing the thing to atoms. In the cane rush, which took place a short time later, the Fresh- men scored their first defeat. But this can hardly be considered a defeat, since they were outnumbered at least two to one. The next event of interest was the class football game played on on December 12th. Here the Freshmen demonstrated their superior- ity when contesting with an equal number. It has often been said that the Freshman class of that year produced the best class football team that ever plaj ed on the campus. Although the inter-class game was played in a drenching rain storm the Freshmen succeeded in making a score of twenty, against four for the Sophomores. Class officers were elected shortly after this, W. A. Keddie suc- ceeding C. R. Ford as president. The baseball game played on May 7, 1897, again demonstrated the ability of ' 00 athletes. It was left, however, for the class field day with the Sophs to fully show the ability of ' 00 athletes. On this day, in the face of almost insurmountable difficulties, they succeeded in making a score of 51 points to 47 for the almost mortified Sophs. vSpring examinations in the latter part of May began to decide who were to be the members during the Sophomore year. As one " ex " after another came and passed its members steadily decreased until only a small part of the original class remained. Thus reduced in numbers they entered upon their career as Sophomores. As the members began to return after the holidays many exclamations of joy were heard at the renewal of old ties and friendships. " Holme b7 Ristory of tbe Senior glass— continwcd again, " said one member, while another hummed a few strains of " Nearer My Lord to Thee. " The responsibility of taking charge of class affairs during the Sophomore year fell to President Brule. Although many classmates were missing, the returned wanderers did not suffer materially by the loss. Those who remained determined to apply themselves diligently and thus accomplish by persistent effort what would be beyond the power of numbers. The scholarship records for ' oo that year contain some of the best standings made in the school. On account of inferiority in numbers they took part in few athletic contests. At the close of the Sophomore year they indulged in that never-to-be-forgotten event, the ' oo class picnic. Early one summer morning the drowsy people of Reno were surprised to see a gaily decorated six-in-hand, with coachman in livery, pass through the quiet streets and proceed westward along the l)anks of the Truckee, but this would be a small measure of their surprise could they have seen and tasted the excellent luncheon prepared by the fair co-eds of the class. After a day of feasting and pleasure they returned in good time for Leavitt to escort his lady to the vSenior reception. The " Junior Prom " on the evening of December 21st was voted the social event of the season. The spacious gymnasium glittered with a myriad of vari-colored electric lights and yards and yards of college and class bunting. Words would utterly fail to describe the splendor of it all. In the class baseball tournament the Juniors crossed bats with the vSeniors, but were defeated by a small margin. At the close of the Junior year one of the members. Miss Lucy Grimes, achieved distinction, glory and honor for herself and class by carrying off the scholarship open to third year Normals, Sophomores and Juniors. The class presidency for the first term of the Senior year fell to W. F. Norris. This semester passed off very quietly and uneventfully. After three years of active college life they looked forward with anticipation to a period of peace and quiet undisturbed b} ' pett} ' troubles and anxieties. A close application to work, coupled with the enjoyment of social privileges, was the order of the year. It was during this term 38 ■ BIstory of tbe Senior Class— continued that George Saxton severed his connection with the " Bachelor ' s Club. " In the second term of the Senior year Mr. John Chism was elected president. As this term is but beginning, Mr. Chism has yet before him the responsibility of leading through the formality of graduation the Class of 1900. The graduating class is, in itself, a remarkable example of the " survival of the fittest. " Many there are who enter the University as verdant Freshmen; fewer they who depart bearing with them the reward of four years diligent work. Many scenes and recollections may become dim in memor3% but the harsh contact with a hardened world will not erase from their minds the recollections of four years at the old University of Nevada. gT»Tmmin»m»s ErnmrniTi frrnmrnmrnmE SiiitiutiiitiuiiiiiitiiiUiiiuiiaiiiiiii plliglllpi utiuAuuuiu iiiatiitiuiuiuiiiiiifa 39 normal oo Class Ristory TTmrmmrmn ' s 3 [fate, who might our life ' s design reveal, Lend m} ' slow pen the power of prophecy.

In the fall of 1897 the Class of ' 01 entered the Universit} Steps were taken at once toward the formation of a class organization. The following officers were selected to serve for the first semester: Presi- dent, Paul S. Moorman; Vice-President, Carl Stoddard; Secretary, Miss Maud Nash; Treasurer, Miss Vera Davis. The class selected cerise and apple green as their colors and adopted the above yell. The first year passed off uneventfully. The officers chosen to serve for the second semester were: Presi- dent, Carl Stoddard; Vice-President, Miss Kate Bender; Secretary . Miss Vera Davis; Treasurer, Alfred R. Sadler. During this semester class rivalry was at a standstill. There were no class contests what- ever between the Sophomores and Freshmen during the academic year. On account of the lack of members, the Sophomores were unable to organize any athletic teams. This made it necessary for the Freshmen to wait another year before bringing off its athletic contests. The class of ' 01, however, did not lose the hope of event- ually winning laurels in the athletic field. The following officers were selected to serve for the first semester of the year 1898-99: President, Charles G. Mayer; Vice-President, Miss Maud Nash; Secretary, Miss Kate Bender; Treasurer, Roy Richard. This year was an eventful one for the Class of ' 01. On September 7th a noticfe appeared on the bulletin board in Morrill Hall informing the Freshmen that the Sophomores would a few days later carry a cane across the football field. After receiving some fatherly advice from the members of the Junior Class the Freshmen concluded that they already had the Sophomores at their mercy. In tlie " wee sma ' hours " of the morning of September loth small groups of Freshmen were seen wending their way toward Lincoln Hall. They had intended waylaying the Sophs the evening before the rush, but no sooner did the Freshies make their appearance on the stairway of Lincoln Hall than the .sturdy Sophs, by means of some rope, bound them hand and foot, and it was not until within a few hours before 43 Ristorv of the €la$$ of oi— continued % the time set for the rush that they were given their liberty. A wiser and better lot of Freshmen could not have been found. The rush was easily won by the Sophs. This victory gave the Class of ' oi the right to carry canes and wear white vests. The Sophomore reception took place in the Gymnasium on October 14th. The members of the class proved themselves to be royal entertainers. Later the Freshmen gave a return " Glee, " thus showing that the best of feeling existed between the Sophomores and Freshmen. The class football game, played on December 7, 1898, resulted in an easy victory for the Sophomores. The score stood 52 to o. At no stage of the game were the Freshies able to stand against the superior force of the Sophs. The officers chosen to serve for the second semester were: Presi- dent, W. Arthur Keddie; Vice-President, Miss Vera Davis; Secretary Fenton A. Bonham; Treasurer, Halbert H. Howe. In a " dummy rush, " which took place on January 27th between the Freshmen and Sophomores, both classes claimed the victory. It would, indeed, be a very hard matter to decide which side should claim the victory, owing to the fact that certain outsiders interfered. The Class of ' 01 further distinguished itself by winning the inter- class baseball tournament, defeating the Freshmen and Senior nines. As a result of its good work, the class was presented with a handsome pennant. In the inter-class field day victory was again with the Sopho- mores. A score of 72 points was piled up by the Sophs, while the Juniors were second with a score of 23. For this good work the class was presented with a second pennant. The following officers were selected to serve for the first semester of the present scliool year: President, Miss Kate Bender; Vice- President, David W. Ward; Secretary, Miss Ethel Sparks; Treasurer, W. Leslie Taylor. The members of the Class of ' 01 now assumed the responsibility of upper classmen. The care of the Class of ' 03 rested on their shoulders. The " Junior Prom " came oft " in the Gymnasium on December 20th, and it was voted by all present to be one of the most successful social events of the season. The officers for the present semester are: President, Wm. J. Moran; Vice-President, Leroy L. Richard; Secretary, Miss filthel vSparks; Treasurer, W. Lesie Taylor. 44 fiisiory of fbe €la$$ of 02 Boom — a — lacka ! Boom — a — lacka ! Boom — a — lacka — loo ! Hip Skiddy — i — ki, Noughty — two ! In September, i8g8, the Class of ' 02 entered the University. A few weeks later they organized and elected the following officers: President, Eugene Stanton; Vice-President, Miss B.Webster; Secre- tary, F. Julien; Treasurer, Miss B. Evans. They chose burnt orange and turquoise blue as their colors. At that meeting a motto and yell were also adopted. The present officers are: President, C. Lead- better; Vice-President, S. Case; Secretary, P. Quinn; Treasurer, MissB. McCormick. The first athletic event of their career was a cane rush with the Class of ' 01. They lost to the Sophomores, giving the latter the right to carry canes. Later in the year they were defeated by the Sophomores in a game of football. In the spring the same classes measured their strength in a dummy rush. The Class of ' 02 claimed to be, and probably was, the victor in this contest. In the fall of ' 99 they figured in a cane rush with the Class of ' 03. After one of the most spirited and closely contested events ever seen on the athletic field, they were again defeated. The class has given two social events, both of which have been decidedly successful. The scholarship of this class, as a whole, has been highly com- mendable. 45 l)t$tory of tbe f resbttian €ia$$ Shortly after entering the University in September, 1899, the Class of ' 03 composed a yell and selected class colors. The new mem- bers were assisted at their first meeting by the Juniors, who brought order out of chaos, making a compact organization out of their vacillat- ing proteges. They are a merry, happy-go-lucky lot, and have contrived to get a get a great deal of fun out of their first year. I shall not endeavor to narrate their many pranks, preferring to leave the .songs unsung until some future date, when these same E Veshmen, who will then be proud Seniors, shall be editing the " Artemisia. " At present forty-four students are enrolled, twenty-fiv ' e boys and nineteen girls. The present class officers are as follows: President, E. Lyman; Vice-President, J. G. McVMcar; Secretary, Goodwin Doten; Treasurer, Miss Mabel Richardson; Sergeant-at-Arms, B. F. G ' Hara. 46 n Brief Ristory of Clterary Societies in tbe Univ)er$ity of nevada ' HE earliest attempt at literary work in the University whs somewhat ci ' ude. The year the University opened at Eeno, all the students then attending were enrolled m a sort of literary society under the direction of Professors McCammou and Willis. In 1887, however, when the University reopened under President Leroy D. Brown, a regular literary society, known as the Philo- mathean, was organized. The Philomathean, in its weekly meetings, did much to foster a true literary spirit; the programs that have been preserved show literary merit of a high order. Of the members of this first society some have since attained more or less prominence in real life, among them being F. H. Norcross, C. A. Norcross, H. C Cutting, Louis P. Boardman, Madeline Bouton, F. X. Murphy and Stella Webster. The organization, later, of a debating club drew off some of the prominent members. This, together with dissensions in the society, finally caused it to disband. For the next few years, since there was no literary society representation of jhe whole college, each class endeavored, in its own way, to conserve the literary ability of its members. The next attempt at literary organization was the Dormitory Literary Society, made up of students living at the University. This, in turn gave way to, and was absorbed by, the Adelphi. The Adelphi, organized in 1892, was by far the most popular and best con- ducted literary society that liad yet been organized. A prominent feature of the first year ' s work vi ere mock courts and congresses. The trial of a member for in- flicting injuries on a cat will long be remembered by those who witnessed it. Among the leaders of the Adelphi were C. R. Lewers, ' 93; E. E. Caine, ' 93; H. E. Stewart, ' 94; F. H. Saxton, ' 95; J. Darkee, ' 95, aud F. E. Walts, ' 9o. The society met weekly in the old Assembly Hall, now the Museum The fourth meeting of the month was devoted to dancing, a popular feature of the society. Its last days, however, were full of trouble, for, after having aided for over four years in pro- moting the literary and social life of the University, the Adelphi, like its prede- cessors, became involved in internal dissensions that caused its ruin. Meanwhile, several classes had been doing good literary work each within its own membership. The Normal Classes of ' 9i aud ' 95, composing the Normal Literary Society, under the direction of Mrs. Emery, made good progress in literary studies. One of these, the Class of ' 94, presented as part of its graduation exercises that year the question: " Do Circumstances Make the Man, or Man the Circum- stances? " The Normal Class of ' 97 conducted a Review Club for the study of classic literture. The Class of ' 98 resolved itself into a Friday Morning Club and spent an hour a week in the discussion of current events and current literature. 48 l)l$tory of CHcrary Societies— continued The University Class of ' 95, under the leadership of Professor Cowgill, held weekly meetings for the discussion of literary matters. The male members of the Class of ' 96 met weekly as a debating club in their Senior year. Following the Adelphi came the organization, in the Classes of ' 97, ' 98 and ' 99, of a society, restricted to young men, known as the Debating Union — " Websterian, " some of the more ambitious orators wished to christen it. The earlier meetings were characterized by brilliant and eloquent debates on the burning questions of the day; the later meetings were marked by the spirit of discord. Finally, this society, too, growing weary of the struggle, gave up its existence. In the spring of 1898, when matters literary and social were almost in a state of stagnation, the Philomathean was organized. The new society grew rapidly. The Philomathean has continued to grow in college power and to be the representative literary society of the University. The Crescent Club was the next to make its appearance. This organization, composed of members of the Preparatory and Commercial Schools, has a strong and intelligent membership. The programs of the club are uniformly bright and interesting. Two debating societies were organized in February, 1900. The Union Club, composed of men of the upper classes, is organized for mental and social culture and for improvement in oratory and parUamentary practice. The Cartesian, com- posed of under classmen, is formed for like serious purposes. There are certain rumors that a new secret society with literary ambitions has recently come into being. In these several societies, each with its own place and purpose to fill, every student of the University who wishes to make the most of his college opportunties may find that literary and social culture which will be a determining factor in his future life 49 Pbilomatbean Roll President George T.

E. Criitcher, Normal ' 97, was the first President. Although at first it grew slowly, with the advent of the Class t of ' 01, in September, 1897, the organization made a decided advance, and for the past two years has held a recognized place among the college societies. Every college and university of any note in the country has its College Young Men ' s Christian Association. Its purpose is to advance the social, moral and spiritual welfare of the students. The Association aims to supply that religious training which the University does not furnish and to develop the side of the student ' s nature which is not touched by science and mathematics. In carrying out this purpose, tlie Association provides religious and social meetings and classes for the study of the bible. Religious meetings are held every Sunday afternoon at which some topic of interest to young men is presented either by a student or friend of the University. An effective class in the study of the life of Christ has been maintained for two years. Union meetings with the Young Women ' s Association are held at intervals. Pleasant social evenings are held in connection with the Y. W. C. A. At the beginning of the college year the two Associations held a reception in honor of the new students. This affair was largely attended and was a gratifying social success. In November, 1898, the Association secured the room in Stewart Hall, which is now used for the various meetings of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. The officers for the present year are: President, G. E. Andekson, ' 02 Recording Secretary, J. O. McElkoy, ' 03 Vice-President, J. W. Hall, ' 01 Corresponding Secretary, F. A. Bonham, ' 01 52 Cbe Voung (Uomen ' s €bn$tian J1$$cciation ' HE YoLiug Women ' s Christiau Association of the University of Nevada was organized on the ' 25th of M;irch, 1898, with nineteen charter members. The first year, under the able leadership of Miss Sybil Howe, the Associa- ciation grew steadily in numbers and in strength. The Constitution of the International Committee of the V. W. C. A. was adopted with some unimportant changes. The work, embracing religious and social meetings, missions, bible study, press and correspondence, membership and inter-collegiate relations, was organized under the direction of a system of committees. At the end of the second semester, 1899, the Association sent four delegates to the summer school for the Y. W. C. A. ' s of the Pacific Coast colleges held at Inverness, California. This summer school, held each year the last week in May, brings us into close relation with the Y. W. C. A. movement in the other colleges and universities of Pacific Coast, and is of inestimable value. The year of 1900 opened with an unusually bright outlook, and by earnest effort among ourselves and cordial co-operation with the Associations of our sister colleges. We hope to materially broaden and strengthen our work before another year begins 5.S V. m. €. n. membersbip ' % % Miss Stella Linsoott Miss Pella Fuller Miss Elizabeth Spubbs Miss Lillian Esdbn Miss Jennie E.

" EVER since the foundation of the University matters pertaining to the drama had been sadly neglected. Societies and clubs sprang into existence and flourished, while aspiring Booths and Bernhardts seemed doomed, like the desert rose, to blush unseen. True, plays had been given, at distant intervals, by different classes and societies, but no club had ever been formed with the definite aim of fostering dramatic art. When the Minstrels scored such a brilliant success in ' 98, the advisability of establishing a permanent dramatic club was discussed. The leading spirits in the movement, however, graduated in the same year, and no substantial results were apparent. Even though the school progressed rapidly in other directions this particular field was left open. No one cared, apparently, to take the responsibility of organization. Finally on January 22, 1900, a meeting was held and the University Dramatic Club was organized with J. Birch Jones as President. It was soon demonstrated that there was plenty of talent which only waited the opportunity to manifest itself. The success of the club was assured, and under the able management of the President and Executive Committee has developed into one of the important factors in the social life of the University. One way of cultivating a taste for the " fine " in literature is to listen to the rendition of the plays that have made our language immortal. To this end it is the aim of the club to present, at intervals of about three weeks, tragedies, farces, etc., by well-known authors, endeavoring in this way to stimulate interest iu literary work among the students. The maiden effort of the club was the presentation of that delightful farce, " Mr. Bob. " (i-t r " ' ' " " ¥i University of nevada Jllumni Jlssociation ' %% ' President Anna Martin, B. A.

Notwithstanding the comparative youth of the University and consequent small enrollment of graduates, the organization has already accomplished much. With passing years the membership will increase and the Alumni Association will become one of the most powerful factors in developing the resources of Nevada, besides wielding a broadly moral and elevating influence in politics and education. mm m The spffiw-cappgd j;iiam ' ts rwni @ r silkj Nire To Ibloo™ 1 plintket!! em |airiEileinis ffi anna si em a Im [byliijie ays wHieinslfeartlii $€(Eiime(al faar Ai0rair®iii|!!i ' oi£ dreams that 1 anlan|l8d om Slides (BBdWiillii her Isswotcliiiml Wistjnimsiiini, The rdcse of L ' pi rfsl-wcvi ' in m Iitr Hnanir .

" " For in companions That do converse and waste time together, Whose souls do bear an equal yoke of love, There must needs be a like proportion Of lineaments, of manners and of spirit. " HE T. H. P. O. originated far back in the misty past. In fact the early history of the T. H. P. O. runs parallel with the early history of the Uni- versity. It is a local fraternity designed to embrace within its jurisdiction men who, recognizing the need of a closer companionship than the recitation room and dormitory afford, band together for purposes of mutual friendship and aid. Association is a powerful influence for good or evil, as the case may be. Un- fortunate, indeed, is he who cannot derive some lasting benefit from companion- ship with kindred souls. The T. H. P. O. aims high. Of course, it does not realize all its ideals. Who does ? And yet there never was a man or group of men who possessed a high ideal and did not feel the stronger for it whether or not he worked it out. Better it is, indeed, to accomplish the end in view if possible, btit an honest attempt is half a .victory. But enough of moralizing. Members of the T. H. P. O. are scattered everywhere. In British Columbia it has able representatives. In South Africa ' s sunny clime, the land of the Boer, Saxton, Henry, Hanson and others are patiently awaiting the ciihninaiion of hostilities to resume their positions, while from numerous localities throughout the United States come encouraging reports of the welfare of other brothers. The annual T. H. P. O. reception on the evening of Washington ' s Birthday is the swell event in University society circles. The youth and beauty of the ' Varsity as well as its staid and older members meet on that occasion to " chase the glowing hours with flying feet, " and woe to him who leaves the gaily decorated Gymnasium bearing appearances of not having had a good time. He is forever after ai outcast. Yes, the followers of ' " Cacein C icem " are a merry l.)t, an 1 yet under their gaiety lies a vein of — but stay. I would praise my brothers all. but I fear that in my enthusiasm I shall pass the bounds of seemliuess SutKce it to say that a more true and noble band were never joined together for pleasure and mutual benefit. 70 Sigma Jllpbd fraternity HIS society is the only Greek letter fraternity for men in the N. S. U. In the spring of ' 93 Sigma Alpha sprang into existence. For three - years the fraternity progressed along channels devoted to the strengthen- ing of the bands of good fellowship In the early part of ' 99 the Sigmas deemed it advisable to secure rooms, and were soon domiciled in cozy quarters at the new Investment Building. The accumulation of sofa cushions bespoke well for the popularity of the fratres with the co-eds, and so enhanced the comforts of the rooms that the members fain would leave them. Memorable to Frazer, Stoddard and Kichard Jr. are certain dark corners of the " roof garden " Under the sur- veillance of " Wally Pug " the frat rooms often took on a hazy aspect, and blithely flew the merry hours, " Sprock " at the chafing dish, with " Antidote Jagory " hovering near. Four months were spent in the Investment club rooms, but more commodious quarters were needed in which to receive the many friends of the fraternity. A large house situated on North Virginia street proved suitable. Within these walls the Sigmas officiated as hosts at numerous house parties and impromptu " spreads; " upholding an unblemished reputation as entertainers— so vouched the entertained. The realization of life ' s sterner duties was brought home to the Sigma Alpha when M. E Pratt departed for the frozen Klondike. This event proved only a forecast of the leave-takings occuiTing directly after Commencement, and now members of the Sigma Alpha may be found in British Columbia, where Boyle and Longley hold responsible positions as surveyors; m sunny Arizona Frazer and Ferguson flourish midst the busy mining camps; Ray Richard is assayer at the Carson Mint; Luke, " De Blue Jay. " superintends the Eagle Salt Works in Eastern Nevada; at Placerville, California, Emory brings into practical use his five years ' accumulation of theoretical knowledge; Gregory pursues the intricate methods of single and double entry bookkeeping in a San Francisco commission firm; Hamlin is climbing slowly up the literary ladder; Stoddard ' s professional card as assayer fills prominent space in the Journal s columns; O ' Sullivan, the only charter member now at the University, and Roy Richard delve among books galore in search of elusive knowledge. Throughout the Sigma ' s early career Professor Jackson ' s thoughtful sugges- tions and valuable gifts enabled the members to become adepts with a billiard cue as well as proficient in duplicate whist. In September, ' 99, the few remaining members of tlie Sigma Alpha reorganized the fraternity, selecting njoms in the Sunderland building on Virginia street. The reputation of the fraternity is ably sustained by the present active members. A good iiifluence is exerted upon all the members by the unselfish ambitions whicli are eiicouiaged and by the eiin(il)liiig friendships formed therein. 71 Sigma Jllpba jmm In Universitate Seniors John Chism Juniors Cakli Stoddaed Leroy L.

When iirst organized it consisted of eleven young ladies, but two others were afterward initiated into the order, thus bringing the membership up to the mystic number, thirteen. The Delta Eho enjoys the distinction of being the first fraternity of young ladies established in the Nevada State University, and promises to be come one of the best institutions of the college. As yet its members have scarcely had time to illus- trate the good influences and results of such an organization, but they hope to make their order a permanent institution, and may, in time, endeavor to obtain a charter. In the meantime they will do their utmost toward the elevation of the minds, manners, morals and merriment of all who come within the circles of their influence. ■EU fe mj 76 Richard C.

" The leading musical event of the academic year was the production of a standard comic opera, " Olivette, " by th e University Opera Com- pany. This was staged at the Reno Opera House on the 11th of May. The enterprise was origiuated and con- ducted by Lester R. Merrill, the foremost musician of the student body. The title role was interpreted by Miss Rowena Langan in a manner that won her recognition as the leading amateur actress of Nevada. Without her the " Musical Mystery " — your pardon, Merrill, — would have had difficulty in pro- ducing the opera. Mr. Richard Tobin took the tenor roll of " Valentine, " the ardent lover of " Olivette. " Mr. Tobin is developing a remarkably good tenor voice. Mr. O ' Sullivan, as " Duke Des Ifs, " sustained the part well, strongly remind- ing one of his brother, Dennis J O ' Sullivan, a " comic opera singer famed on two continents. Miss Cecil Linn posed as the dignified " Coun tess of Rousillion. " Her acting indicated close study and much ability. " Captain Merimac, " the character represented by Mr. Lester R. Merrill, was well rendered. Mr. Merrill has been too long before critical audiences in the Grand Opera House, San Francisco, to find anything very difficult in the roll of " Captain Merrimac. " Mr. James Giles played straight comedy in his usual happy way, delighting all his auditors. splendid. 82 -. 04 ueiic University Opera Company- continued Youthful Ralph Stubbs, disguised as Olivette ' s aged father, acted the part with realism and force. Misses Myrtle Montrose and Laura Shier were well selected, and evidently enjoyed filling their places in the cast. An opera without a good orchestra is like bread without salt, but " Olivette " lacked nothing in this respect. Notice- able were the talented Misses Anna and Kate Sunderland and Miss Florence Kent as first violin, piano aud second violin respectively. Let it be understood that many diffi- culties were encountered in staging this opera by a cast of students. Too much cannot be said of the untiring zeal and energy of Messrs. Merrill and O ' Sullivan in bringing the clever entertainment to perfection. Mr. Merrill has clearly demonstrated that he is rapidly becoming a competent musical director, and Mr. O ' Sullivan is a stage manager par excellence. Miss Langan has a brilliant future before her as an opera singer (T s should she feel inclined to take up this profession, and several other members of the cast woiild have no difficulty Uj winning a livelihood on the stage.

Smith, Special 99 football PERHAPS more interest is taken in football at the University than in any other branch of athletics. The Athletic Association during the past few years has spared no pains nor expense to secure the best training and coaching facilities obtainable. The result of this is that the University of Nevada, though small in numbers, has for the last two years turned out teams skilleil, sturdy and reliable. During the season of ' 99 A. King Dickson of the University of Penns Ivania was employed as coach, and King Ryan of San Francisco as trainer. W H. Brnl was captain of the team and G. T. Saxton manager. The following series of games were played during the season of ' 99: October 14th, Nevada ' s Campus; University of Nevada 63; University of Pacific 5. October 28th, Nevada ' s Campus; University of Nevada 11, Santa Clara College 6. November 11th, Stanford ' s Campus; University of Nevada 5, Stanford 17.

It is a ■ well-known fact that after tlie football debts of the year were paid little or no money was left to meet the expenses of the other sports. But notwithstanding this diflBculty the candidates for track team honors cheerfully took up the work of training early in the spring under the direction of their able captain, J. M. Gregory . Very soon each member realized how necessary systematic training was to success, and exercised lautiring energy in this respect. Through the kindness of the Honorable Board of Commissioners, T. K. Hymers, G. Alt and Wm. Noyes, the use of the fair grounds was given to the students in which to train and bring oif their field days . The first try-out of the season of ' 99 was an inter-collegiate field day held on April 15th. Each class showed considerable spirit in the contest. The Class of 1901 was the victor, scoring 47 points, and was presented with a handsome banner, designed and painted by one of our own co-eds. Miss Dicea Jameson. The Junior Class was second in the contest, scoring 26 points. Efficient men were then chosen and the U. of N. track team for ' 99 was organ- ized and work was begun in good earnest. Never had the boys responded better nor worked harder. A game was arranged by Manager Jameson with the Berkeley Freshman team, which, by the way, contained many of the strongest athletes of that University This field day took place on May 12th. The lively and increas- ing interest evinced in field sports was shown by the number of tickets sold on this occasion and the enthusiasm displayed by the crowd of spectators, who came from neighboring towns as well as our own to witness tlie sports. The teams were eveidy matched, the result being a tie, 48 to 48. Moorman, who that day distinguished himself as one of the most able athletes on the coast, took first place in every race that he entered. He broke the 440 yard record, running it in 53 seconds flat. Brule smashed the running broad jum p record, clearing 20 feet 9}{ inches. Many of the standing records were also tied- Some important meets have already been arranged for the season of ' 00, and we trust that under the present able management of D. W. Gault the eff ' orts of the team will be crowned with success. 92 Basket-Ball BASKET-BALL was introduced into the University of Nevada in 1896 and during the latter part of that year two teams were formed, one in the Class of ' 99 and one at the Girl ' s Oottase. A match game took place between them and the ' 93 team was victorious, the score being 2 to 1. At that time the contest seemed a strong one, but in comparison with the game to-day it would hardly be recognized as basketball. The bloomer girl had not yet come upon the field and rules were almost entirely disregarded, making the game one grand scramble from beginning to end. Having no one to coach, practice soon became tiresome and for a time basket-ball was given up entirely. During 1897 no special interest was taken, but iu the spring of ' 98 it suddenly revived. The basket-ball garb as we at present know it very wisely took the place of frills and petticoats, and dae attention was given to the rules. A desperate struggle for existence ensued and finally a match game was secured to be played in San Francisco with the University of California. But few girls cared to practice; the team was chosen a day or two before its departure from Reno, consequently there was little hope of success. The game finished, the score stood 14 to 1 in U. C. ' s favor. However, work of the U. N. was very satisfactory, especially as Cali- fornia had defeated several other teams than our own by larger scores. This fact seemed encouragmg, as after the team returned home Miss Edith Brownsill of the University of California was hired to coach for the remainder of the season, and a lively interest was manifested in the sport. In the following spring practice was resumed and games were arranged with Berkeley and Stanford. For about amon.h Aiis j Ada Edwards of Stanfoid coached the team and a strong nine was formed. The first game ended in a U. C. victory, but the score — 7 to 3— was a great improvement on that of the year before. Both teams did their best work; the contest was almost even during the first half and it was in the last part of the game that California made most of her points. Two days later, on April 11th, Nevada won her first victory by defeating Stanford at Palo Alto. and the score of 3 to 2 showed clearly that two evenly matched teams contested. At different times during the ' 99 season games were played between picked teams from our own college, but as they were not considered match contests no account of them has been kept. The second year of basket-ball was partially successful. Great improvement was made upon the first. At present the third season is opening, and although there is no hope of securing games with the two leading colleges of California, several will be arranged with other teams of that State. Miss Edwards is again coaching and the outlook is a pleasant as well as a successful one. Here the writer might pre- dict the results of the season of 19j0, but as that record belongs rather to the future it will be well to leave it for another to write. 93 m ' 99 Bd$ket»Ball Ceam Riflbt forward Winnie Strosnider manager Elizabeth S tubes Goal Stella Linsoott eenter Frances Kerbt Riflbt eenur Myrtle Montrose Ccft Torward Bebnice Worland Ccft eenter Ida Holmes €enter Guard Ethel Sparks Kigbt Guard Ethel Peckham Ccft Guard Louise Ward, Captain Dora Hill Substitutes Lillian Marrett Cornelia Parish 94 ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■■ I ' liiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiipiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitia Jitbletic J1$$octation Officers G.

Springmeyek D. B. Acree military Department HE Military Department of the University of Nevada was instituted in 1889. Captain Ducat, who gained fame in the Spanish- American war was the first commandant. He was followed by Lieutenant J. M. Neall, one of the most efficient officers in the United States army at that time. During Lieuten- ant Neall ' s administration the military departmeot attained a high degree of ex- cellence, and the work in this line earned very flattering reports from the Govern- ment inspectors who annually visit the institution. Lieutenant Neall was succeeded by Lieutenant W. R. Hamilton, who in turn was followed by Lieuten- ant E. W. Hubbard. At the outbreak of the Spanish-American war Lieutenant Hubbard was called to the front, and thus, for the first time in its history, the military department was left without a comuaadant. During a great part of the present school year the work was under the supervision of Captain F. M. Linscott a graduate of the University and an officer of the United States Volunteers. He, however, left to engage in other pursuits. Since that time Cadet Major D. W. Hayes aud his staff of otiicers have managed the department. The habitual formation is that of a battalion of infantry, cousistiag of two companies and a signal corps. The deparfcmeat also boasts of a brass baud of twelve pieces. Theoretical instruction is given in infautry tactics by means of lectures by the commandant and recitation under the supervision of squad in- structors. The practical instruction consists of drills four times a week in squad, company and battalion formation, target practice, guard duty, etc 100 €ott«)iction BrougM by Dream HE mind is master of the man in sleep, When we ' re awake conditions are reversed. Things thought seem grim realities, vast, deep. When they are loathsome, then sleep is accurst. I dreamed last night the maid I love was dead. Snatched from me by a swift and dread disease; Into her still, white presence was I led. Sorrow enthralled me; blood, pulse, seemed to freeze. Half crazed with grief and all bereft, I woke. Oh, rapture ! Joy to know ' twas just a dream; Dread misery gone, destroyed at one fell stroke. Which tore me from the realms of things that seem. A virtue was there in that dream so drear, ' Twas sent by Him who rules the Heaven and earth To show my doubting heart I need not fear To trust the love which calls her to my hearth. 102 A view of some of the Seniors as they will appear thirty-five years from to-day. 104 W .t6 tUe »« tUjU S L ncoU MvUL k MsstiLl lt . 105 Olben l)eck Ula$ a Pup ®H, for one hour of the good old days of yore, " sighed Saxton, as he shifted his precious bhie T.

J., " he continued dreamily, as Tobin leasurely arose to lock the door and close the transome preparatory to burning a little Yale Mixture in a disreputable brown meerchaum pipe. " That ' s a joke, isn ' t it ? " inquired the musical Dick, addressing his remark to Hayes, who, with Norris and Jones and several others, was helplessly tangled up in a heap on another bed. " V ' es, " continued 8axton, not in answer to the irrevelant remark, btit in con- tiTiuation of his reverie, " tbe good old days gone by. when we indulged in all those various pranks and escapades which nr)w form part of history, when we roamed and prowled and raised merry imf)S with everything; when we defied rules, regu- lations and advice; did what we pleased and eluded the faculty. " " Ah, there you go again, " yelled Giles, jerking out his words without pausing a minute in a perusal of " RicK Phantom, or the Fisher Boy Detective. " This abrupt interruption disturbed Saxtou ' s usually placid nature Seizing a sofa pillow- not the blue one -he hurled it at the offender with unerring accuracy. The result was confusion and tumult. A bottle of liquid glue, a set of $25 draughting instruments, several unclaswitied minerals, Bowser ' s Analytical Me- chanics and a Seth Thomas clock were swept from the table as the i)illow spun toward the offender, hi. ting him squarely in the face and piling him up amid the general wreckage on the floor. " Child of a degenerate race ! " yelled the assaulted student, hastily extracting himself from the debris. " ' What evil spirit induced you to smite one so im measurably above you as I ? " " What the hotel. Bill ! " came a gruff growl from the region of the second bed. " Can ' t you fools let a man slumber a Itttle ? " Then came three loud raps on the locked door. These knocks had a marvelous effect on the festive congregation. Some of the fellovvs who had been laying on the bed in that drowsy state which precedes a midday nap now displayed signs of remarkable activity. In a manner that would shame professional acrobats three dived through the half open window out onto the tin roof and immediately dis- appeared. Another dodged into a closet and drew the curtain, while the bolder spirits sat bolt upright on the beds and endeavored to look as innocent as they were. Saxton arose slowly and unlocked tlie door. In stepped, ruffled and angry, the keeper of the Hall, Richard Brown. 1 will not attempt to give the conversa- tion, which took place, beause the publisher might have to send for several extra fonts of exclamation points. The result of it was that several dejected students were soon afterward seen filing through a door on which was posted the notice: " President ' s Office. Hours, to . " One of Them.

Now, this dog -was not an ordinary yellow cur, but a valuable, thoroughbred setter, such as one seldom finds among the numberless canines which roam at will through most Nevada towns. Of course, Frank thought a great deal of his dog, and well he might, for in his nomadic wanderings about the country this valuable animal had been his con- stant friend and companion, sharing his master ' s travels by day and guarding his slumbers by night. On one of these many aimless excursions Frank happened to meet an old friend who was at the time attending our State University. Nothing would do but that Frank must cease his wanderings for a time and enjoy his friend ' s hos- pitality. Thus it was that Frank and his dog found themselves comfortably settled in Lincoln Hall, and surrounded by all the pleasures and comforts of a home. For some time Frank was content with the peace and quiet of his surroundings and the companionship of his new made friends. At last, however, his roving dis- position asserting itself, he decided to bid farewell to his jolly companions and continue his wanderings. He was surprised, however, to find that his dog showed no inclination to move, but lay curled up in a corner, occasionally whining and showing signs of pain. Thinking that the dog would soon be well again, Frank waited a few days. He found, however, that the dog showed no signs of improvement, but day by day took less notice of his master ' s familiar voice, moving restlessly about the room whining piteously and evincing intense suffering. On the third day after the first signs of sickness the dog died in most terrible agony. Frank took immediate steps to discover the cause of his companions death and vowed eternal vengeance on the party or parties whose base deed had caused the death of so valuable an animal. Having exhausted all other means of discovering the identity of the criminal Frank decided to resorted to a chemical analysis as the only means of discovering the cause of the dog ' s untimely death. Accordingly the case was placed in the hands of three of the most competent State chemists, and Frank awaited their report. He was confident that the animals death was caused by potassium cyanide or some other deadly poison. At last the report came. In the somach of the dog the chemists had found " A U. of N. dining hall porterhouse steak. " 109 r O . BASKET-BALL. ' Woman ' s place in this creation, ' kSiiid the speaker with elation.
