As at the close of day,
Seeking their horneward way,
Feel that they leave behind
Part of the strength and mind
They were exerting.
So as we send to roam,
Far from its prairie home-
This, our endeavor-
Feeling we send away
Part of ourselves to-day,
Pray as a favor
That you receive it kindg
Be to its faults as blind
As were its rnakersg
Read it with gentle care,
Be of our humble fare

Progress of the University During the
Past Two Years
'iw X D y HE growth of the University since the appearance of the last
N Dacotah has been intensive rather than extensive. The several
xv departments of the institution which were then established have
been strengthened by the acquisition of more ample appliances
W for the doing of their work and the insistence upon the main-
tenance of a high standard of requirements for admission and
graduation. The library, laboratories, museum and teaching
staff have all received important accessions. The number of volumes in the library,
for instance, has increased during the past two years from less than 9,000 bound
volumes to more than I8,000. This increase is the result partly of the purchase
of new books, partly of the important gifts by Mrs. Cochrane of nearly 2,000
volumes and of about 500 volumes by Hon. M. N. Johnson, but largely of the
recent purchase, with money appropriated by the state. of the splendid law library
of the late Hon. John M. Cochrane, a member of the Supreme Court of the state.
This library numbers some 5,000 volumes Zllltl was for many years reputedly one
of the best private law libraries to be found in the West. The accessions to the
laboratories and museum have been too numerous to mention in detail. Perhaps
the most notable acquisition during this time has been the bones of a mastodon,
which we1'e presented by Dr. Grassick of lluxton. This mastodon is supposed to
be the largest ever discovered on the American continent and is a possession which
any one of our great universities might justly envy. lt is to be regretted that the
University has at present no suitable .room in which the mastodon can be mounted
and permanently placed.
The last two years have seen a notable increase in the teaching staff of the
University, the academic faculty having increased in that time from twenty-five
to thirty-two members and the faculty in all departments from thirty-four to forty-
The past two years have seen the erection of no new buildings, although the
Presidentis House has been completed and occupied since the issue of the last
Perhaps the most notable gain to the University in any material way during
the two years past has been the construction of the new street car line, thus bringing
the University, for the First time in its history, within easy access to the city. The
new car line, next to the passage of the mill tax for the support of the University,
is likely to contribute to the upbuilding of the institution more than any other single
event in its history. 11
VIEVVS OF THE PRESlDENT'S RESIDENCE
NVith the beginning of the next school year there will be opened a College of
Medicine with a course of study extending over two years. For the present and
for some years to come, the University cannot hope to be able to maintain more
than the first two years of a good medical course. Much work already done in
our departments of biology and chemistry will be incorporated into the curriculum
of the College of Medicine so that the creation of the new college will not add
greatly to the cost of maintaining the institution nor make a large demand upon
our teaching force. The work in anatomy and physiology in the medical school
will be under the charge of Dr. Archie l.. McDonald, a graduate of the College of
Liberal Arts in the class of I9oI and a graduate of the johns Hopkins Medical
School in the class of 1905. lt is expected that the new school will be able to com-
mand the services as lecturers of a number of the practicing physicians of Grand
VVith the organization of the College of Medicine the outlines of the University
will be practically completed. Its work henceforth will be to erect a substantial
superstructure upon the foundations now for the first time completed. The recent
legislature has dealt with the University in a fairly generous way. The bills
appropriating 368,000 for the payment of our debts and 310,000 for the purchase
of the Cochrane library have been signed by the Governor and are now laws. It
was hoped that the Governor would see his way clear to sign the bill appropriating
35,000 annually for the maintenance of a bacteriological laboratory in connection
with the new school of medicine and the bill appropriating 330,000 for an admin-
istration building and gymnasium. We shall now have to wait two years for the
new laboratory and the new gymnasium, but the fact that both bills passed both
houses and would doubtless have been signed by the Governor but for the great
excess of appropriations over the estimated income of the state for the next two
years, indicates a spirit of willingness on the part of the state to make generous
provision for the needs of the University. The University is yearly growing in
popular favor with the general diffusion of its graduates and former students
throughout the state and it is going to be henceforth an easier matter to secure
needed legislation in behalf of the University than it has been heretofore. It is
said that there were more University graduates at Bismarck this winter in various
official positions than there were of the graduates of all the other state institutions
combined. This fact alone is most reassuring to those who have fought the battles
of the University during the last twenty years, oftentimes under circumstances of
the greatest discouragement.
This ar-ticle would not be complete without a brief mention in closing of the
victories of the University in the forum and on the gridiron. The University was
successful in its debating contest with the University of South Dakota at Vermillion
in 1903 and again in its contest with the University of Manitoba in IQO4. Debate
was never more flourishing at the University than at the present time and it is
difficult to say whether debate or football commands the more undivided and
enthusiastic support of the student body. 'ln the year IQO3 football relations
between the Agricultural College and the University were suspended owing to
conditions for which doubtless neither side was wholly to blame and neither wholly
blameless. These relations were happily renewed in 1904 and in the two games
played between the Agricultural College and the University, o11e at Fargo and the
other at Grand lforks, the University was in both instances victorious. llasketball
has been well supported at the Linivcrsity. During each of the two yea.rs past our
girls' team has won the championship of the state. The men's basketball team was
organized at the beginning of the present school year and has been but twice
defeated, both times by the team representing the Agricultural College.
The glee and mandolin clubs have been well supported during the past two
years and have each year made a successful concert trip during the Easter vaca-
tion. During the present school year the Trustees voted S3500 toward the equipment
of a University band with the result that a band has been started here and is now
in a flourishing condition.
At the close of the last school year the conduct of the Student magazine was
entrusted to the senior class and during the present year the STUDENT has
appeared as a weekly instead of a monthly publication.
W'hile there has not been a marked increase in the enrollment as a whole, there
has been a notable increase in the membership of all the upper classes, particularly
in the college department. The last graduating class numbered fifty-two members
as against thirty-three for the year before. The present graduating class will
number nearly or quite sixty members.
This brief summary of the happenings of the last two years, while it has no
great events to relate, indicates a condition of sustained and healthy growth in all
departments of the institution.

HORACE B. WOODWORTH
Horace B. Woodworth, B. A.
PROFESSOR EMERITUS OF HISTORY
T the close of the last school year Professor Horace B. VVoodworth, who had
been a member of the University Faculty since 1885, relinquished his
active work in the institution and became Professor Emeritus of History.
Prof. VVoodworth is a V ermonter by birth. He graduated at Dartmouth College
in the class of 1854 and for some years following was a teacher in various New
England academies. He graduated from Hartford tConn.j Theological Seminary
in 1861 and for more than twenty years served as a pastor of various Congrega-
tional churches in Connecticut and Iowa. In the early eighties his health became
impaired through long service in the pulpit and he removed to South Dakota and
l lt of his farm life in
engaged in farming. His health greatly improved as tie resu
South Dakota. ln 1885 he became a member of the faculty of the recently
organized State University of North Dakota and from that time to this he has been
a familiar Hgure about our buildings and grounds and his name has become a house-
hold word with the thousands of students who have attended the University during
' ' l.'l
the last twenty years. Professor VVoodworth is a typical Yankee. ice most
Yankees of the best type lie is notable for his common sense, his ready and keen
wit, his philosophical temper, his readv adaptabllity, and his willingness at all
times to do the thing which duty demands and to throw himself into it with all his
powers. To hundreds of the older students and graduates of the University Pro-
fessor Wooclwortli's personality has been such an inspiration as is rarely found
within colle - e walls. His great versatility is evidenced by the fact that at various
. Q s
tunes during his connection with the University he taught Mathematics, Physics,
Pedagogy, Ethics, Philosophy and History. He would be the last to claim for
. P" I
himself great scholarship in all or any of these subjects. but he taught them all
with such careful preparation, with such fidelity and with such devotion, not to
say consecration that his pupils doubtless received far more of benefit from lns
. . 1. F
instruction than they might have received from the most scholarly specm ists. or
several vears prior to his retirement Professor Wooclxvortli s work was confined
. ,, . .
to the department of Historv. He is the author of a widely used Civil Govern-
ment of North Dakota." During the nineteen years that he was connected with
the University he prepared and read many papers on educational topics before our
. . . I I
county and state educational associations and was a frequent and most acceptaa e
speaker at hi h school commencements and various reli ions and social atherin s.
g , , 2
After an unusually busy life unselfishly devoted to the nnprovement of his fellows
in the broad fields of education and religion, Professor Woodworth is enjoying a
well earned rest at the home of his,daughter. Mrs. Gordon, in Minneapolis. He
carries with him into his retirement the respect, the love and the best wishes of the
thou .n ls of University students who, directly or indirectly, came under his
influence at the University of North Dakota, as well as of those who served with
him at various times as co-workers on the University Faculty.

JOHN M. COCHRANE
Judge john M. Cochrane
UDGTC JOHN M. COCHRANE at the time of his death, July 20th, 1904, although
comparatively a young man, was the most commanding figure in the state.
He was born in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, in 1849, and was the son of James
and Caroline McDowell Cochrane. His mother was a native of Pennsylvania, and his father
was born in ireland. llc was educated in the public schools of Minneapolis and the University
of Minnesota, and graduated from the law school of the University of Michigan in 1881.
The same year he was admitted to the bar and commenced the practice of law at Le Sueur,
Minnesota. In 1883 he came to Grand Forks, where he continuously resided until the day of his
death. I-'le was elected county judge of Grand Forks County in 1884, and after serving three
years he resigned and accepted an appointment as state's attorney to fill a vacancy. He
was elected to succeed himself and at the end of the second term retired from offtce to
devote his entire attention to the practice of his profession. He was for a time one of the
trustees of the State University and also acted as trustee of the State Normal School. In
1893 he was appointed Supreme Court Reporter and Filled this office continuously until his
election to the supreme bench in IQO2.
fli ' 1 d lar e ecuniary sacrifice but the popular
His acceptance of the judicial o ce mvo ve a . g p . .. ,
demand tl1at he accept the office was so strong and so universal that he consented to become
a candidate and was nominated 'by both parties without opposition and was elected at the
general election in November, 1902, without a single dissenting vote.
Earlv in his career at the bar he became a conspicuous figure, and for a number of years
before his accepting a seat on the supreme bench he was generally conceded to stand at the
l z l f tl 1 :t.tf bar. He was a man of great eloquence and as an advocate had no equal
ieir o ic s '1 c
within the state. At the same time he was recognized as a man of great strength in
legal skill and knowledge, and he constantly supplemented the gifts of nature by assiduous
study investigation and toil. His presence was magnetic. This was owing to the exceptional
warmth and generosity of his heart and the breadth of his human sympathies.
The University owes him a deep debt of gratitude for many services rendered by him in
L S l l
its behalf and especially for the great, interest he took in the North Dakota aw cioo,
and the highly valuable work he did for it in many directions. lhe state has recently
recognized what it owes him in this respect by purchasing from his widow his magnificent
law library of several thousand volumes.
He was not generous merely as other men are generous, he was lavish in his generosity.
His nature was, indeed, so rich in great and high qualities that he was the most universally
beloved man in the state at the time he was so suddenly called away. Although he had
rs on the bench at the time of his death, he had already shown
that he could unite in himself those two dissimilar elements of strength-power and eloquence
served less than two yea
as an advocate, and also learning and legal discrimination as a judge.

Senior Class History
HE present senior class had its beginning early in the history of the institu-
tion. lt began, upwards of a decade ago, with thc appearance of two
ungainly, raw-boned Irish country lads. One of these came from the
North and confided that his name was llillg the other came from the South. Both
were backward and ill at ease, and longed again for the simple life on the old farm-
stead. One of the two has not yet gotten over this feeling, but the other, as
his angles lost themselves in his maturing manhood and ripening experience,
developed a bearing of confidence and came to be known among the fairer sex as
"Innis.H The next year these two were joined by a little French hopeful in knee
breeehes, 'who has since developed a taste for medicine and Spanish idyls.
Then, as the years passed by, some were added and -some were taken away.
Early in its history a Dutchman joined the ranks, but he has never been entirely
our own. Orthodox in his belief, that old Bible injunction that a man who has
taken unto himself a wife should forsake his father and mother and remain with
her, has so inspired him with a desire to do likewise that only by persistent efforts
have we been able to keep him in the fold. A little later a Norwegian was added.
Be it said to his credit that all through these years he has weathered the wiles of
woman and at the present writing still remains intact. Then from New York
State came l.ee-Scotch in his ancestry and, like liurns, a lover of the modest
"Violet.', Far-off Ontario next made a contribution of one who has ever remained
faithful to his class. His specialty! is biology, and deep in the meditation of his
science, even in the fray of a junior sleigh ride he conceived a new classification
l ' l 'te About this time too, Herb-our
of the genus homo. His favorite co or is w ll . . , . ,
sole North Dakota product-joined the class. Then it was that we began to be a
factor in the social life at the "U," and that the maidens leaped at our bidding and
wept over our inattcntion.
As the years rolled on, our only girl joined us. She has been faithful to our
cause as our better half, and has nobly shared good and evil with us. To our class
she has brought many honors and to herself the highest credit. lt is Grafton that
has had this honor-the honor of contributing our only girl. lt, too, had the
humble privilege of producing the historian who should till time immemorial per-
petuate the noble deeds of his class. But it was destined to even greater things,
for it was from Grafton that the immortal King Dodo came. It is he whose good
intention is to join, by ties of church and state, our Alma Mater to her sister institu-
tion in the valley city.
Thus the class prospered and grew till the year nineteen hundred three. In
that year the Valley City Normal found it worthy of its ehoicest sons. Of these,
four have remained faithful to our standards. There is Ernest, earnest and faithful
in every undertaking--except in loveg there is his room-mate, whom fate has
dubbed Jesse, and in whose bosom this self-same cruel fate has inspired a hatred of
womankind and then, to mock his misery, doomed him to sit for three months at a
table with thirteen tow-headed maidens and no masculine friend to help him bear
the torture. Then there is he, whom they call for short, VVill. His manly presence
brought another charmer to our midst, though he knows it not and they fthe
maidensj suffer in silence. To complete our history, is our married man, whose
happy state is our promised land, the Canaan of our dreams and idle fancies.
Another there was, Henry by name, who is ours no more. Yet we remember him
with fondness for he was the link that bound us to the alumni with ties of sweet
affection. He is now our representative at Oxford, the first Rhodes scholar from
So long as has been its history, arduous would be the task of recounting the
deeds of the 'o5's since their beginning. Yet three things should be here recorded
so that those who are to follow them may profit thereby. It was they who under-
took the first -lunior sleigh ride party and, in defiance of all other classes. suc-
cessfully accomplished their ride. lt was they who inaugurated the annual ball of
the juniors in a style worthy of the class. And it was they who, when the powers
that were and are, asked them to edit the college paper, made it truly a college
paper and raised on the grave of the old dead-and-buried monthly "The VVeekly

NCFI upon a time when the Senior Normals were assembled, discussing their future
prospects, there appeared upon the scene a beautiful ethereal goddess, surrounded
by a halo of light of unsurpassed magnificence. She drew aside the hazy curtains
which concealed the future from their view. They were struck with amazement and awe at
the sight before them. Then spoke the goddess thus in clear, clarion tones:
"Be not afraid. I come here to bring you words of good cheer, tidings of great joy.
Behold the promising future which lies before you! Behold the great rewards which you
will reap! Faithfully and well have you toiled through these long and oftentimes trying
years. High were your ideals when you came here but umneasurably higher are they now.
Deep have you delved into the mysteries of the universe and many and great are the
individual, the general, and the universal laws you have discovered. Skillful have you
been in planning courses, curricula, and time-tables, but still more skillful will you be in
your applications. Great has been your insight into the subtle workings of the human mind,
and wonderful has been your success in dichotomizing the Cosmos.
"And now behold the future! Of trials and tribulations you will have your share and a
strenuous life you will have to lead. But the trials and tribulations will make your successes
more pleasant, your achievements more valued, and your will more resolute, ready, and firm.
You will encounter difficulties, displcasures, and disfavors. But the difficulties will develop
your mettle, the displeasures will increase your independence, and the disfavors will strengthen
"And now behold your accomplishments! See how the dismal, dreary, dilapidated
structure by the roadside gives way to the snug, cozy, home-like schoolhouse. See how the
children change under your noble, inspiring influence. See how their tired feelings give way
to attention, their mischief to earnestness, their carelessness to alertness, and their sing-song
tones to strains of harmony as you lead them up the rugged heights of knowledge through
the study of types to a contemplation of the unity of the universe, and awaken in them the
ioy of achievement. See how the ff 'K 'W'
Much more would the goddess have said, but just then those awful bells sent their shrill,
harsh, discordant tones through the halls and the Senior Normals, ever mindful of their
duty, said the goddess goodby and departed for their work.

The Law Class of 1905
HE learned barristers of this memorable class hail from an area bounded on the east
by Cape Cod, on the west by the sun-kissed Pacific and on the south by the Mason-
Dixon line, imparting to that class such varied degrees of education, thought and
impulse as can be found within those lines.
In this happy combination of wisdom seekers, some of whose appetites had been tempered
by a taste of Blackstone, or civil government, this intellectual entity found its being in the
autumn of IQO3.
Lodgment in fruitful soil has crowned the judgment and wisdom of this soulless entity
with laurels, even though that wisdom may have been only a circumstance.
Though perhaps handicapped during the first few weeks of existence by trivial
inconsistencies in the workings of some of the component organs, such as aversions of
pastoral and Greek minds to the inherent diiiicultics of the new work, a brief space of time
found Harvard men and bronco-busters delving together, in perfect harmony, into the
intricate mazes of contracts and agency. I
Farmers, merchants, clerks, agents, collectors, teachers, photographers, journalists and
cow men, together with one congenial fragment of femininity, have contributed most
generously to posterity's heritage from the class of '05,
The class was reinforced by a sturdy contingent from the University of Minnesota
in the fall of '04, also by a couple of corn-fed philosophers from "Ioway." Some of its
members have taken a prominent part in oratorical and debating contests, others in public
discussions of political and economic questions, and many bear modestly the laurels and
scars of gridiron fame. The social harmony of the class of '05 will, we hope, furnish an
excellent precedent for future classes as well as a screen to class discord in some of the

ACTS OF THE JUNIORITES.
I. Now, it came to pass in the course of
human events, that the great and mighty
tribe of the Juniorites made their way
through the tall and uncut timber of many
lands unto the gates of the 'Varsity in the
land of the Dacotahs.
2. Now when the king of the 'Varsity
perceived the strong, mighty men and the
tall, fair maidens oftthis tribe, he was
exceedingly glad, and straightway sent
forth his servant to open unto them the
gates and bid them come in.
3. And they passed into the land and
dwelt there and early shewed that they
possessed an exceeding store of gray
matter, and now there are none in the
'Varsity that can stand before them.
4. Now, ere they had dwelt long at the
'Varsity, it came to pass that they
assembled together for to choose from their
numbers a ruler.
5. Now when certain other tribes heart-l
of this thing, they said to one another:
Let us squelch this new tribe.
6. And they gathered together much
people and marched against the tribe.
7. Now when the tribe of the Juniorites
saw all these tribes coming they were
wroth, and they set themselves in array
against them and fought against them.
8. Now, when these tribes perceived .the
host of Juniorites and their fierceness in
battle, they became sore afraid and every
man of them rled, save one.
9. Now he who did not llee is com-
monly known as the philosopher.
IO. And this philosopher began straight-
way to preach doctrines contrary to the
belief of the tribe of the Juniorites, and
their wrath was kindled and they stretched
him until he was exceedingly sore.
tl. Now vvheu the people of the
'Varsity beard of these things, they said:
"Verily, the men of this new tribe are
men of valour," and nought was done to
vex them during thc remainder of the first
year of their sojourn at the 'Varsity, and
the tribe waxed and grew great.
CHAl"l'ER X Ll X.
I. Now it came to pass in the second
year of their sojourn that the king of the
'Varsity perceived that the young men
were mighty in word and deed.
2. And he spake unto the 1'uler of the
tribe saying: "l pray thee let me have two
of thy young men that l may send them to
debate with the men of the north country."
3. And the ruler straightway sent forth
two of his young men, and it came to pass
that the men of the north bowed their
heads in defeat before them.
ACTS OF THE JUNIORITES--CONTINUED
4. Now the fame of this tr-ibe became
great and was spread far and wide.
5. Yea, even in the land. of. the
Minnesotas did people hear of their mighty
men, and they did hear, likewise, of their
maidens, tall and fair.
6. And it came 'to pass that James J.
Hill of that land did send unto this tribe
for a maiden, 'tall and fair, to christen his
great steamship, The Dakota.
7. And from that time unto this day,
the youthland maidens of this
been continually sought after,
has been the demand for them.

of the Sophomore Hop?
II. And were they not the first people
at 'Varsity that ever raised a banner on
12. And even though their first banner
was rent and torn into pieces by those who

The Freshman Class
LTHOUGH the organization of the Freshman Class was late this year, it was entirely
successful being the first time in recent years that a Freshman Class has been able
to hold its organizing meeting without interruption. The Sophomores, whose duty
it was to break up the meeting, were very much depressed. Goaded on by the Jeers and
l. l f tl 1 er classmen they woke up, held a meeting and decided that the Freshmen
augiter o me 1 pp ,
should be punished for getting ahead of them. While they were laying their plans, a
handful of brave spirits from the Freshmen Class broke in upon them and caused a hurried
adjournment. ' -
Tl S l mores desperate now, determined to make it hot for the Freshmen at their

meeting, slated for the next noon. In order to make sure of success they enlisted all the available

teams. But above all they are scholars, as their records show. They have a prospect of a
future full of value both to themselves and their Alma Mater.

roUNDED JANUARY, iss,
HAT a part has Adelphi played in University history! What a part has it
played in the evolution of its members! For twenty years has it stood
firm while other societies have arisen and fallen. For twenty years it has
ever been identified with progress and ever working for the best interests of our
Alma Mater. For twenty years its members have taken a leading part in all stu-
dent activities. Adelphi was the originator of the open meetings of the societies,
which for a long time were the chief social functions of the year. It maintained
the first reading room and published the first newspaper at the University. It
contributed financially to the first U. N. D. band. Its members carried out the
first intercollegiate debate-that with South Dakota in ISQ4, and established the
first oratorical contest.
But not only has Adelphi been with the first in launching new enterprises. It
has loyally supported old ones as well. It has furnished more intercollegiate ora-
tors and debaters than any other society. It has ever been well represented on the
Student Board, on Athletic Boards of Control, in class officers, and in all student
activities. It has taken part in fourteen intersociety debates. During the last two
years it has furnished four out of nine intercollegiate debaters and two out of four
intercollegiate orators. Thus it has shown itself fully able to hold its own against
the competition of four other excellent societies.
But these are only the outward indications of a healthy society. The real
work and the real enjoyment cannot be expressed in words. The training, how-
ever, will eventually tell. NVe point with pride to the record of all Adelphi
alumni. It remained for a young Adelphian alumnus to move to tears the immense
audience at the recent Cochrane memorial session of our legislature, after old and
experienced orators had failed. The training afforded in the friendly combat of
the Adelphi forum is already beginning to count in good services for our state.
The present members aim to keep up the standard. Thus the highest mission of
a society is fulfilled.
But intellectual training is not the only object of Adelphi. By its associations,
by its banquets, by its sleigh rides and picnics, it prepares its members for a cred-
itable appearance in social as well as in public life.
In its picture is expressed better than words can tell the sum-total of Adelphi's
present characteristics and activities. Each member contributes his strongest
characteristics and mental faculty to the whole. By that whole Adelphi wishes to
be judged. Out of its meetings, whether stormy or harmonious, its members
emerge ever benefited and inspired to better deeds for our society, our Alma Mater,
and our state.

D. T. SOCIETY
HIQIN histories are written, it is oftimes the historian's delight to delve in
the musty records of the past and trace through the tangled web of myth
and legend the slender thread that connects his subject to the beginning of
all things. Not so with the historian of A. D. T. This subject necessitates no
delineation of the forces that conspired in its creationg for its own exlstence is its
excuse for being. Nor does it admit of a description of a legendary period, for,
like Minerva springing from the head of jupiter full armed and mature in every
power, the A. D. T. sprang into exfstence full grown.
WVhen the time was ripe for the organization of a new literary society, a band
of young people, the best literary talent among those who did not already belong
to a similar organization, met together and the A. D. T. was a reality. This was
in the fall of 1899. Since then. it has been foremost in every literary activity.
Prior to its organization, debating was at a low ebb at the University. Lack of
competition and healthful rivalry had permitted all interest to lag. The appear-
ance of a new rival on the field brought it new life. Keenly contested intersociety
debates were instituted to test the relative merits of the different societies and
intercollegiate debates were arranged. Ever since the A. D. T. was organized,
and since then we have seen the birth of two new societies, the Forum and Ad
Altoria, debating has been an important educational factor at the University.
In debating, the A. D. T. has been pre-eminently successful. Out of twelve
intersociety debates, in which she has met, each, in turn, of her sister societies,
the A. D. T. has to her credit nine victories. For the past three years, her colors
have triumphed in every contest. Her young men have ever been prominent and
successful on the teams representing the University in contest with other institu-
tions: and her young ladies have held the Gansl medal for debate four years out
of the five it has been offered.
llut the A. D. T. has not only been successful as a debating society. Her
members have ever won recognition in oratory and in literary achievements, and
have always been successful contestants for the honors offered in these subtle
arts. The organization of A. D. T. is co-operative and fraternal in its nature.
Every member aims to help the rest and a spirit of close fellowship pervades every
activity of the society. "Once a member, always a member," is the motto of its
enthusiastic alumni who take the keenest interest in those who constitute the active
membership. This has been the secret of the success of the society.
ln 1903 the first number of "Ye Little Booke" appeared. This little volume
contains choice literary productions by the members and alumni of the A. D. T., as
well as items of general interest connected with the society and the University at
large. As it is published from time to time it reflects what the society is doing,
and serves to keep the members, many of whom are now scattered over the state,
in closer touch with each other and those doing active work in the society at the

A new constitution was drawn and adopted because of the fact that the old one was
lost or spirited away during the vacation of IQO4.
The ofiices of the society under the new constitution are filled for short periods of one
mouth, each member getting a chance for the offices. This year, H. J. Devauey, John
Coulter and john XfVilliains represented the Society in debate with the Per Gradus Society and
were victorious. Throughout its whole career the Forum has been a source of much
pleasure and opportunity for parliamentary drill and quasi-public effort for its members.
HE need of another literary society had been felt for a long time. Several
had talked of organizing one, but nothing was done until the winter term
in 1904. A constitution with by-laws was then framed and the draft was
read at .1 meeting of Per Gradus on March 21, 1904. Seven members and ex-
members of Per Gradus signed the draft and petitioned the faculty for permission
to organize a new literary society, a permission that was readily granted. But
the society was as vet, nameless. Dr. Thomas being called upon to propose a
On june I4 the original signers who were present held a meeting and elected
temporary officers who had charge until the permanent organization was effected
last fall. The first regular officers were: President, J. F. T. O,Connorg Vice
President, Jay Blissg Secretary, I. D. VVoodsg Treasurer, V. J. Melstedg Sergeant-
at-Arms, W. C. Husband, and, Advisor, Dr. Thomas.
At the regular meeting on October 18, the society received an offer from Mr.
A. E. Palmer of Grand Forks, to give the society annually a medal, said medal to
be known as the "Palmer Medal," and to be awarded by a vote of the society for
good, honest work in the society. The offer was more than gladly accepted and
the secretary was instructed to give Mr. Palmer Ad Altiora's hearty thanks.
There was now one thing lacking, an intersociety debate. This it was rather
difficult to get, because one of the other societies would in such a case have to get
up two teams. The Adelphi finally consented to do so. Ad Altiora proposed the
question: Resolved, That the government should own and control the railroads in
the United States. The Adelphi chose the negative. Both sides worked strenu-
ously but, somehow or other, the Adelphi won. It was felt by some on both sides
that "there are times that try men's souls."
The constitution originally provided for the admission of girls as well as boys.
Either the girls feared the strenuousness of pioneer life in Ad Altiora or else the
boys did not take pains enough to gather them in, for no girls joined. Besides
this, several members of the faculty were highly in favor of an all-male society.
The constitution was, therefore, changed so as to exclude girls from membership.
The Advisor, Dr. Thomas, had meanwhile suggested that the example of
Romulus and his band be followed. Praiseworthy as this plan seemed, it was
impossible for the society as a whole to follow it out because no agreement could
be reached as to which camp to attack, but several members have since made suc-
cessful raids singly and continually harassed the enemy.
Such is the brief history of Ad Altfora. Although more might have been
accomplished, still a good beginning had been made. In the years to come, Ad
Altiora will, no doubt, do its part in the accomplishment of the purpose of our
In closing, special mention must be made of J. F. T. O'Connor, VV. C. Hus-
band, and Otto Strom. These gentlemen deserve more than ordinary credit for
what they have done in organizing Ad Altiora and working for it.
"To greater heights, To greater heights, Ad Altiora always fights."
Ad Altiora. This was adopted and Ad Altiora was now born and

HR Per Gradus ranks second in age among the societies at the University.
It was organized in the winter of 1887, by a few ambitious young men who
felt the need of another society.
During the eighteen years of its existence, it has never ceased to grow. At
first only men from the college and preparatory departments were members, but
in 1893, Per Gradus was organized and made a preparatory society. Since then
it has drawn its members from the preparatory department alone.
Up to this time there had been a yearning in the hearts of the noble- minded
and progressive Per Gradians for the elevating influence wrought by woman, and
not begrudging their sisters the opportunity of training in the line of debate and
public speaking, the preparatory girls were at this time admitted to participate
in the benefits of Per Gradus.
During the twelve years following its reorganization, Per Gradus has partici-
pated in a number of debates with other societies. Notwithstanding that their
adversaries in debate have been men of college rank, they have sometimes been
victorious. Of all those chosen to represent the University in interstate debates,
Per Gradus has contributed several men. More than half of the interstate debaters
have been at some time members of Per Gradus. But the aim of this society has
not been to gain honors or place itself above the other societies, for she has no rival,
being the only preparatory society in the University. Its primary purpose is to
give training to its members in debate, public speaking, and parliamentary prac-
tice, which will prepare them for work in the college societies.. That its work
has been effective, is seen by the record of post-Per Gradians. Per Gradus sows
the seedg the other societies reap the fruit.
At present there are Fifty members in the society. The regular meetings are
held once every week in Chapel Hall. The colors of the society are silver and old
rose, and on important occasions, a beautiful banner bearing the inscr.ption, "Per
Gradusf' is displayed.
In 1901, a society pin was adopted, which is now worn by every member as
an emblem of its purpose, which is not merely to see an opponent bow in defeat,
but as the name implies, to step forward in intellect as in years.
None but a Per Gradian can know how important a part of student life is
Per Gradus. Results, far more lasting than producing debaters or orators, are
found in the hearty spirit of co-operation and fellowship which unites the members
and encourages them to strive more earnestly to attain the greatest and noblest

O u r Intercollegiate Debates
I-Ili interest in debate at the University is keen, and the Intercollegiate de-
bates never lose their attraction for the student body. The representatives
of the University in these debates are chosen by a committee of the faculty,
from the participants in the various Intersociety debates. All five llterary societies
put their strongest men in the field. and the preliminary contests have ever kept
up a very high standard of debating.
This year the University has taken part in two Intercollegiate debates: One
with the Cniversity of Manitoba, the other with Carleton College. The debate with
Manitoba University was held March lo, 1905, at the Baptist Church. The question
debated was: "Resolved: That free trade is more advantageous to a country than
protection." North Dakota argued for free trade while Manitoba upheld protec-
tion. The representatives of the University of North Dakota were: Fred IZ. Mc-
Curdy, Henry Devaney and John A. johnson. A decision was rendered in favor
of the Manitoba team. Last year the debate was held at Manitoba University, on
the 18th of March. In this debate the decision was rendered in favor of North
Dakota. The representatives winning this debate were: Harold VV. Iiraatelien,
John M. Anderson and Olger B. Burtness. The question discussed read: "Re-
solved: That the adjudication of disputes between employers and employees should
be made a part of the administration of justicef,
The debate with Carleton was held April 28, 1905, at Grand Forks. The ques-
tion was: 'fRcsolved: That a system of bank notes, based upon the general assets
of the bank, is preferable to a system based upon government bondsfl Olger B.
Burtness, Ernest C. I-Iilborn and Martin B. Ruud represented the University in
this debate. This was the first debate which North Dakota has had with Carleton
College. The decision was rendered two to one in favor of Carleton.

The Gansl Debate
HE Gansl debate was accompanied this year by the usual interest which it
arouses. The question debated was: "Resolved: That no person who can-
not read and write intelligently in some language should be allowed to vote
in the United Statesf' The debate was held at the Baptist church in Grand Forks,
the evening of February 2oth. Adelphi was represented by Bertha Newlander,
Frances Sanderson and Nona Lyons. The representatives of A. D. T. were:
n and Cecil Ward. The Gansl medal was left in
Maud l1Vardrope, Helen Sulliva
the hands of A. D. T., which society has won it for three consecutive years.
The question debated last year was: "Resolved: That the present immigra-
tion law, so amended as to exclude from admission to the United States any male
alien over fifteen years of age who cannot read and write intelligently in his own
or any other language, would be preferable to the present law." The debate was
held February 26, IQO4, in the Chapel. It was a part of Founders' Day exercises,
and the Chapel was crowded, although the night was stormy.
The medal, which the winning society holds the year following each debate,
was presented by Mr. Gansl, formerly of Grand Forks. It is of gold, set with dia-
monds-a very beautiful trophy for the fortunate winners.
The standard of debate in this, the chief girls' contest, has ever been very high.
The arguments are carefully prepared, no small attention is given to delivery and
their literary merit is always of the highest order.

The North Dakota Intercollegiate Oratorical
MEETING was called, in February, 1896, to discuss the merits of forming
an intercollegiate oratorical league. The meeting was held in the parlors
of the Hotel VVebster, Fargo, N. D. Two delegates were present at that
meeting. Mr. W. A-. Pringle represented the Red River Valley University, and
Mr. C. M. Hall represented the North Dakota Agricultural College. This com-
mittee reported favorably to the institutions interested, and ata meeting, May 16th,
1896, the constitution was adopted, and the Intercollegiate Oratorical League of
North Dakota came into existence. Since that time, however, the name of the
league has been changed to the North Dakota Intercollegiate Oratorical League.
The first president of the league was J. I. Asher, of the Red River Valley
South Dakota had learned of the movement in North Dakota to establish a
league of oratory, and she at once set about to establish a lrVestern League of
Oratory. Although the North Dakota league was still in the embryo, a committee
meeting was called May 4th, 1896, and a resolution was forwarded to Lewis
Odlund at Vermillion, South Dakota. The South Dakota institution at once
expressed a deep interest in the movement, and stated that it was the desire of the
several institutions in that state to form such a league as soon as the North Dakota
state league had been formed. North Dakota has been a member of the Western
League of Oratory since its formation.
The first annual state oratorical contest was held at Grand Forks, N. D., Feb-
ruary 24th, 1897. The state orators winning first places from that time have been :

HE Oratorical Association of the University of North Dakota was organ-
ized june 13, 1896. The committee on the constitution consisted of Wni.
V. O'Connor, Knute Arnegaard and Neva Bostwick. The report of this
committee was read and accepted on the above date, and oiiicers were elected.
This association is a member of the state organization and contests are held
annually to choose two orators to represent the University in the state contest.
The winners in the year 1904 were E. P. Totten and R. Percy Abbey. Mr. Totten
won second place in the state contest and thus represented the state in the interstate
contest. The winners for 1905 were Samuel Moseby and john M. Anderson. On
account of Mr. Moseby's disbarment the representatives of the University for 1905
are John M. Anderson and Vida M. Turner.
To stimulate interest in oratory President Merrifield offers a prize of thirty
dollars to the contestant winning first place in the local contest, and twenty dollars
to the contestant winning second place.
Since 1897, when the first contest was held under its auspices, the Oratorical
Association has prospered. The contests are held annually between the first and
fifteenth of February and are open to any undergraduate of the University.

YOUNG WOMENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION was organized at
the University in 1892, with Mrs. E. J. Babcock as its first president. The
organization has grown year by year and has been a helpful factor in fos-
terin the spiritual side of University life among the girls. In 1901 Misses Kilclahl
and Robinson were sent as the first representatives to the College Conference at
Geneva. Since then the following delegates have been sent: Miss Lund, in IQ02,
Misses Jackson and Sanford, in 1903: Misses Newlander, Kirk, XVard and
McLean, in 1904. The last years have been marked by a decided growth in the
strength of the association, whfch ,is attributed to the increased delegations to the
. . V M.
College Conference, and to the untirmg efforts of our first state secretary, iss
Gold Corwin, who began her work among us in 1903. During the last two years
the association has also been visited by Miss Ruth Paxson and Miss Kyle, national

The Y. M. C. A.
EW organizations have met with such wonderful progress in these first few
years of the 20th Century as has the Young Men s Christian Association.
After the fall of Port Arthur the first boat to that port carried two sec-
retaries, who were soon followed by a complete outfit of supplies for carrying on
the work. Camp life is being relieved of many of its vices, and in his leisure mo-
ments the soldier can forget his hard, rough life amid the softer mfluences of the
Association rooms. The soldier who formerly spent his evenings in carousing
now goes to the Association, where by the aid of bath, library, and religious ser-
vice, he puriiies body, mind and spirit.
The Y. M. C. A. is pushing its work into every department of life, and is
meeting with a royal welcome wherever it goes. All over the land are springing up
large buildings, splendidly equipped with parlors, reading rooms, gymnasiums, in
fact, everything that appeals to the tastes of a young man. These are drawing
our young men away from the poolroom and the saloon, and surrounding them
with the best influences of culture and refinement.
ssociation has been exceptionally gratifying among
But the success of the A
the universities and colleges. The largest universities have buildings given up en-
tirely to Association work. The work is winning the college man to a Christian
life, and the men are responding. The Associations are filling up with the best
and strongest students. The leaders in athletics, in the classroom, and in debate,
are leading the work of the Association.
The waves of this revival have spread and set our own University life in mo-
tion. With the help of such men as W. M. Parsons, Charles D. Hurrey and M. T.
Kennedy, our Association has aroused itself to action and it is reaching out and
drawing into its ranks nearly all the men of the University.
This year the local organization sent fourteen delegates to the State Conven-
tion and is planning to send three to the Geneva Conference. At present there
are over seventy men engaged in systematic Bible study. The Association at-
tempts to extend its work into every phase of student life, and is helping many a
young man to a life of greater usefulness and of more complete manhood.

In the fall of 1903 the "Milner" Society was organized at the University of North
Dakota. Its purpose was to study the magnificent literature that has been produced in the

from time to time, have been given at the regular meetings have served to bring the members
into closer touch with the literary men of the Fatherland, their spirit and their work. The

The Celtic-American Society
WO years ago a meeting of all the Celts at the University was called to discuss
the advisability of a Celtic Society. A committee was appointed to draw up a
constitution, and soon after this the Society was duly organized. It numbers, in its
membership, nearly all the Celts of the University. Any person having, at least, a
grandparent of Scotch, Irish or Welsh blood is eligible to membership.
The Society aims to keep alive and nurture a feeling of kinship and mutual helpfulness
among the descendants of the old Celtic tribes. It does not aim to establish partisan feeling
or clannishness. It would not renew the old tribal exclusiveness of centuries ago. But it
would keep alive a feeling of fellowship among those whose ancestors struggled together
against their common enemies, and who have ever spoken various dialects of the same
The Society holds animal banquets, which are greatly enjoyed both by members and by
guests. These banquets for the past two years have celebrated St. Patrick's Day. Fitting
programs have been prepared relating to the great men and events of the various countries,
the homes of the Celts. Recently a library has been started. This is to contain books
upon subjects pertaining to Irish, Scotch and Welsh history and literature. It is hoped
that such a library will aid the Celts in realizing how strong is their common tie, and in
acquamting them with the history and progress of the Celts as a people.

VARSITY BACHELOR CLUB
Varsity Bachelor Club
FTIIR all, "What's in a name?'l What matters it whether our emblem be the
"skull and cross-bones," or the modest "pierced heart?" While the former may
indicate a grim determination to "do or die" in great achievements, and a bond of
friendship that can be broken but by death, the latter signifies-and we hope the lives of the
members will exemplify--hearts run through and through, tested, weighed in the balance,
and found "not" wanting, and true not only to each other, "until death do us part," but
bound more devotedly still to our Alma Mater.
The world, its institutions, and its social organizations, are continually changing. What
was jest yesterday is earnestness today, what was adversity in the setting of the sun, looms
brightly into affluence and prosperity as '4Old Sol" pushes his beaming countenance over
the brin1 of Mother Earth at break of day. So it has come to pass that the Varsity
Bachelor Club conceived half in jest, half in earnest, and born into adversity, the victim of
misunderstanding, beset by "Anti-Bachelors" and others of their "ilk," and pounced upon
by birds of prey under the leadership of "The American Eagle," has in its three short years
of life-1902 to 1905-established itself as one of the strongest student factors likely to
predominate in future years in the upbuilding of the good old "U," a factor that will always
be found working for the advancement, improvement and elevation of our schools, a factor
that hopes by enlisting in its ranks some of North Dakota's best brawn and brain, to lend a
hand in placing the University in that place of prominence in the State and in the great
West which all her sons and daughters feel she ought to occupy.
Two requirements are absolutely necessary to be maintained in V. B. C.-good fellowship
for each other and good fellowship for the "U." l-Ience to become a member of the Club,
the person must be a student of the University, of Sophomore rank or higher, have been in
attendance at the University at least one year, and have declared it his bona fide intention
to take his degree in some one of its departments, and must receive the unanimous vote
of the members of the Club. It is the endeavor of the Society to elect its members from the
most prominent and most promising men in the student bodyg men who have proved
themselves heart and soul attached to the University and her interestsg men who will
always be found striving for the honor of their Alma Materg men who will in years to come
fight her battles in our legislative hallsg men who are likely to be prominent in the public
affairs, not only of our state but of the nation as well: men whose honesty and integrity are
True, there are many such men among our students who are not V. B. C members, but
all cannot be of the elect, for the number of our first degree members Qundergraduatesj
is limited to ten. Every member must be acceptable to every other member, not only to every
tirst degree member, but also to every member of higher degree fthe alumni membcrsj.
llence, though eight vacancies were to be filled this year, only four members were unanimously
agreed upon and these four were, on Washingtonls Birthday, the birthday as well of V. B. C.,
duly installed. '
For the year 1904-'05 the Bachelor Scholarship, in the smn of thirty dollars, is offered
by the Club, open for competition to all male students of the University not members of the
V. B. C. It is expected that the amount of this scholarship will be increased from year to
year and be made permanent. This small beginning is but a forerunner of greater things
the organization hopes to be able to accomplish for the aggrandizement of the University
in future years. Harvard calls her organization the Skull and Cross-Bones Society, North
Dakota calls hers Varsity Bachelor Club-"What's in a name ?"

HIS fraternity of young men, while firmly believing that learning in itself was gt
prime requisite for an education, nevertheless felt that there was a something-else
needed for a fully developed, well balanced man. Accordingly, on Oct. 30th, ,O4,
about two hours after Old Sol had pulled his benign countenance beneath the western
horizon. ten worthy sons of the good old "U" met and organized what they hoped would
be instrumental in supplying that something-else which they felt was lacking in their
courses of study. This was the beginning of the HP. T. K."
Not conceived, half in earnest and half in jest, but conceived with a sublime purpose,
it at once made itself prominent in University politics. It was deemed wise to keep tl1e

as a dispenser of the "long green

To become a member of the "P, T, K." the young man must be a University student

The Biological Club
HE Biological Club, which meets every two weeks, has for its members students
in the Biological Department, and their friends. The subject matter of the programs
consists of reviews of current biological literature and discussions of botanical
and biological problems. Also suggested applications of the laboratory work to the
interpretation of the current problems in biology are brought forward. Its aim is to
serve as a seminar, offering opportunity for larger discussions of life theories, and serving
as a creator of a deeper and keener interest in this department. '
Mining Engineering Club
YEAR ago Prof. Babcock, the dean of the College of Mining Engineering, realizing
d could be obtained from frequent meetings of the boys in his
department, called a meeting to discuss the advisability and benefits of a club.
As a result a committee was appointed to draft a constitution. The club was then duly
organized and holds its meetings monthly. At these meetings original papers on mining
subjects are presented and magazine articles read on mining and mining processes.
Prof. Babcock kindly offered the use of his parlor in which to hold the meetings. When
that much goo
an especially interesting program is prepared the boys invite young ladies. After the papers
have been presented, a general discussion follows, during which Mrs. Babcock serves
refreshments. The club is in a flourishing condition.
The Engineering Seminary
LL civil and mechanical engineers are eligible to membership in this Seminary. Its
ionth, in the Mechanics Arts building. Their object
is to keep the students posted on the engineering subjects under general discussion
in the periodicals. Articles are read from the various engineering journals, and a discussion
ensues. Original papers are prepared, by engineers from outside, by professors, and by
students. The meetings have brought about much profitable thinking and discussion on
"u -to-date" engineering subjects, and have added no little interest to the re ular work
of the course.

Clippings from a Naughty SiX's Diary
Nov. 30.1 We organized the Freshies today. They were easily fooled. The fight was
exciting, and the furniture in Prof. Perrott's rooin-alas! is no more. '! "
Jan. 15. A Leap Yeai' dance! Surely the boys don't get so excited over ordinary
dances. I wonder if all the girls traded slips. We put the eligibles in a hat, shook them
up, drew, and oh! the combinations. 1 think most everybody traded! Well, anyway, you can't
help having preferences. "' 'K 'l'
Jan. 23. 7:00 p. m. Tonight's the night. The Armory looks like a dihferent place
with such a profusion of pennants and college colors. Hope Mr. likes the flowers.
Home-made pussy willows ought to be appreciated. 'l' "' "'
II 230 p. m. Tired, tired. Honest Injun, l'm glad that I'm not a boy, and yet it was fun.
It didn't embarrass me one bit to march up to a boy with my card full, ask him for a dance
and then sweetly tell him that I couldn't make our cards match. The boys with their shawls
and fans were quite dainty and I don't doubt that the girls looked decidedly manly finding
their partners chairs, etc. 'F 'l' "
Ian. 26. The Juniors are to have a sleigh ride. I'm living in hopes that I'll get an invite.
Maybe " 't "'
Jan. 30. 7:00 p. m. It's pretty cold, but we're prepared for the worst, robed in all the
garments that could be begged, borrowed or stolen. I feel ready for something out of
12:00 p. m. Decidedly out of the ordinary: wasn't it simply glorious! It was a regular
stage coach hold-up. Oh! I wish that I could have been one of those boys and taken part
in the general mix-up and dodged bullets like Andy did. I must admit that I was quite
frightened at first, but now, when I think of Craig demanding whether the hold-ups were
gentlemen or students of the University, I wonder how I could have been so foolish. Some
of the girls think that the boys will be kept under arrest, but surely the authorities will
know a joke and appreciate it. " 'F 'l'
Feb. 1. We had a class meeting today and decided to do something to let people know
that the Sophomores exist-the something is to be a hop. Each girl is to invite a boy and
each boy a girl outside of the class.
Feb. 6. I don't know who to ask to the Soph. hop. I believe all the nice boys in
this institution are Sophomores-but-I have it! I'm going over to the library, turn
around three times with my eyes shut, and then make a wild rush for the first boy I see
when I open them.
Feb. 12. 7:30 p. m. Lykken!!! I could scalp him without a quiver. Any boy who
would put such a dope on the fioor, and then be caught in the act of sprinkling red pepper
on top of it, really ought to be ostraciszed.
12:00 p. m. Naughty Six has now proved its ability to hop as well as do other things.
Even the fumigator didn't stop our fun, and we'll admit that it was a bright idea to attach
it to the keyhole after locking us in-only they should have remembered the windows. I
dou't think that Lykkenls dope hurt the floor very much, after allg so we'll forgive the
small boy for having a little fun.
March 14. O'Connor's hall, the event of the season. is a thing of the past. Not being
one of "our crowd," I wasn't there, but I have the facts as sobbed out by one of mv more
fortunate CPD friends. Few words tell the story-the heartless janitor forcibly ejected the
merry dancers while yet the sun was still high. It seems that even "our crowdi' can't run
the Irish-American club rooms.
April 29. Tonight we banqueted the Freshies. The little folks seemed to have as
good a time as children usually do when called upon to attend such functions. I noticed
that they enjoyed the "eating"-the ice cream seemed to please them especially. I-Ielen's
wit and Martinls philosophy were quite surprising. They will probably amount to
something some day, if they follow our excellent example, of course.
june 14. Class Day. Today we stood alone against the whole institution. The 'o5's
did take down our first fiag that we spent half the night putting up, but Prexy, Doe and Pete
out of pure sympathy for them, had to take down our second one. We are no longer:
Sophs, and with '06 floating aloft without a rival, we have entered into the kingdom of the

ON. WILLIAM BUDGE, life member of our Board of Trustees, was born at St,
Margaret's Hope, South Ronaldshay, one of the Orkney Islands, October 11th,
1852. His parents were John and Jean CBudge.D Budge, his father being a farmer.
William attended the local parish school till he was I3 years of age, walking the four
1niles each way daily between the school house and his home. His own account of his
school education is that it consisted of at least one whipping a day till he was 13. The
whipping must have been administered with characteristic Scotch thoroughness, for the
subject of our sketch, as all wl1o know him will agree, was whipped to most excellent
purpose as tested by the results. Between his Ifjlll and I6tll years young Budge, while
nominally residing at home, spent most of his time coasting along the shores of the
Orkney Islands, in tl1e employ of local fishing smacks. At 16, young William shipped with
the Hudson Bay Company for the Northwest Territory, reaching that region by way of
Hudson Bay. After a year spent in the Northwest Territory in the employ of the Hudson
Bay Company, he came to Pembina, North Dakota, in 1870, and was employed by W. C,
Nash, now of East Grand Forks, in his brickyard. The story runs that "Billy,l' as he
was then and is still universally known and called, knocked one day in the early spring at
Mr. Nash's oliice door and asked for work. Mr. Nash had at that time a large number of
half breeds at work for him, and as Billy had been walking for several days over the
prairie, facing the raw spring winds, he was naturally pretty well tan11ed and was, in the
casual glance which Mr. Nash gave to him, not unnaturally mistaken for a "breed" Mr.
Nash was busy but, needing additional help to carry bricks from one part of the yard to
another, he hurriedly wrote the following note to his foreman: "Browley, set this breed to
work." "Billy" glanced at the note as he left the office and smiled, but said nothing. A
few hours later Browley entered the office and said to Mr. Nash, "Mr. Nash, that is a pretty
good breed that you sent -me." Mr. Budge enjoyed the incident as much as any one, and
to this day rarely meets Mr. Nash without making a laughing reference to it. After the
season closed at the brick yard "Billy" moved on to what was then known as Turtle River,
now Manvel, in this county, and joined with George B. VVinship, proprietor of the Grand
Forks Herald, and jacob Eshelman, for many years Mr. Budge's partner in business in
Grand Forks, in building and conducting a station for the stage line which operated between
St. Paul and Winnipeg. After three years spent at Turtle River in this employment, young
Budge, in IS74, came to Grand Forks, where he has since made his home. Between 1876
and 1378 he engaged in freighting between Bismarck and the Black Hills, after which for a
brief time he conducted a general store at Kelly's Point Know Actonj. Since I880 he has
been engaged in business in some capacity in Grand Forks. He has served at various times
as chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, sheriff, bank director and president,
postmaster and University trustee. It is in the latter capacity that he is best known to
the students and faculty of the University, and probably to the State at large. For many
years Mr. Budge has been actively interested in state as well as local politics, and was for
some years chairman of the Republican State Committee. His great influence in politics
is due largely to his faculty for conciliating opposing or hostile factions, and to his genuine
unselfishness and his tactful subordination of himself and his interests to what he believes
to be the larger interests of the party which he'represents. His tactfulness and diplomacy,
combined with his absolute unselfishness, have given him great infiuence with the men who
largely shape legislation and administration in North Dakota. All the influence thus acquired
Mr. Budge has used with a remarkable disinterestedness and singleness of purpose in the
upbuilding of the University. While most actively engaged in politics himself, he has at
all times insisted that the University should be kept absolutely free from political
entanglements. In this way he has been to the University a tower of strength, rendering
it a service which no other man in the State could have rendered. Mr. Budge was first
appointed to the Board of Trustees in March, 1891. Even before that time he had manifested
an unusual interest in the University. Since his appointment as a trustee he has watched
over its interests with a devotion rarely exampled in the history of the administration of
any public trust and unexampled, it is believed, in the history of the administration of any
state institution of learning. The only possible parallel is the devotion which the late
John S. Pillsbury displayed in his long connection, as trustee, with the University of
Minnesota. When the University appropriation was vetoed by Governor Allen in 1895, Mr.
Budge at once set to work to raise by public contributions the fund requisite for the
maintenance of the University till the meeting of another legislative session: and it was
mainly due to his efforts that the University was safely tided over the biennial period from
1895 to 1897. Four years later, and again six years later, when the growth of the University
rendered imperative the erection of new buildings, which the legislature did not see its way clear
to provide for by direct legislative appropriation or otherwise, Mr. Budge fathered and carried
through the proposition to borrow the needed money by means of floating warrants issued
by the Board of Trustees, trusting to the succeeding legislatures to legalize the action of
the Board of Trustees by the authorization of funding bonds pledging the anticipated
income from the sale and rental of the University lands as a guaranty for the eventual
payment of the debt. This action of the Board of Trustees was undoubtedly ultra vires,
but Mr. Budge and the Trustees felt that the University's need was critical, and they felt
justified in taking the somewhat unusual and perhaps-we will not say illegal but-extra legal
means resorted to. To the courage and foresight displayed by the Board of Trustees, under
Mr. Budge's leadership, at this juncture we are indebted for Budge Hall, the Power House,
Science I-lall, Mechanic Arts, and the Presidents House. Several of the other state
educational institutions which were in similar dire need, taking their cue from the action
of our Board, issued warrants and with the proceeds erected imperatively needed buildings.
The succeeding legislatures, while ostensibly deprecating the extra legal action taken by our
Board in the way of emergency financiering, condoned the irregularity and authorized in
both instances the issue of bonds with which to fund the fioating warrants. Smaller men
than Mr. Budge and his fellow members on the Board would have taken counsel of their
fears rather than of the institution's extremities, with the result that the University, together
with several of the other state educational institutions, would have been disastrously
handicapped and the splendid development of the last five or six years would have been
unrealized. Apropos of Mr. Budge's courageous action, it is reported that ex-Governor White,
then and still a warm friend and great admirer of Mr. Budge, said to a gentleman from
Grand Forks: "I don't know what to do with Billy Budge. He rides rough-shod over
the laws and even over the constitution. He has done things as Trustee which would
logically land him in the penitentiaryg but what can I do? He comes down here with
the opening of each legislature, tells the legislators what he wants, puts his arms around
them in his great-hearted, good-natured way, and gives them all a hug, whereupon the
legislators turn to each other and say, 'Oh, well, Billy is a good fellow, let's give him what
A 164 '
he wants,' and forthwith all his official irregularities are wiped out by an act of legalization
or condonation of his acts." What University in the land would not think itself lucky in
having a Billy Budge upon its Board of Trustees? It is difficult for those who know Mr.
Budge intimately to say which of his many high qualities they admire the most-his sterling
common senseg his unquestioned integrity, his absolute unselfishnessg his unswerving loyalty
to any cause which he once espousesg his big-heartedness and tender sympathy with all forms
of distress, his modesty, which amounts almost to a fault and always prompts him to prefer
others to himself, his absolute freedom from all vindictiveness, showing itself in his unfailing
readiness to help a political opponent Cthose are the only kind "Billy" hasj once he is down,
his-but why prolong the list? All the high qualities which go to make one of "Nature's
noblemenf' as one of Mr. Budge's earliest and staunchest friends has recently described
him to the writer, belong pre-eminently to William Budge. An eminent judge in this State
once told the writer of his first meeting with Mr. Budge. lt was on a railroad train
somewhere in Minnesota. There had been a washout and the passengers had to transfer
around a deep ravine. Everybody seized his grip and started for the other side of the
ravine-everybody, that is, but a poor woman, meanly clad, with two small children, one
a dirty, fretful baby in arms-and a big, burly, broad-shouldered man with a very ruddy
face. The judge looked back when he had gotten nearly over and saw the big fellow carrying
the two babies, while the delicate-looking woman picked her way along as best she could,
with a big package in her arms. When all had gotten seated in the other train the judge
turned to the big fellow with the ruddy face and said, "I've seen you somewhere before. Where
do you live ?" The big fellow answered, "At Grand Forks," whereupon the judge said, "Why,
that is Billy Budge's town." Now the judge had heard of Billy Budge as one of those
unscrupulous politicians with whom really respectable people could hardly be expected to
associate, don't you know. Imagine, therefore, the judge's surprise when the big fellow
replied, "Well, some people call mc Billy Budge."
Of all men who have been.known to the writer, the one who most resembles Billy Budge
is Hon. William H. Taft, our Secretary of War-or plain "Bill" Taft, as he used to be
affectionately dubbed by his college mates in his undergraduate days at Yale. Both men
are built on the same large plan. Had "Bill" Taft been born on a bleak island in the North
Sea and left to shift for himself at the tender age of 13. he might to-day be known as I-lon.
William H. Taft, life member of the Board of Trustees of the University of North Dakota.
On the other hand, had "Billy" Budge been cradled as "Bill" Taft was, in the lap of
comparative luxury, and given "Bill" Taft's chances, he might to-day be our honorable and
honored Secretary of War, prospective Chief justice or Chief Magistrate of a great nation.
Two years ago, at the opening of the legislative session, after having, in the language
of Governor White, "ridden rough shod over the laws and even the constitution of his state."
Billy Budge went down to Bismarck to face the music. Justice is not often as swift or as
unerring as it was in his case. In the very first days of the session he was tried, convicted
and sentenced for life-not, however, as Governor White said he logically should have been,
to the penitentiary, but to the Board of Trustees of the State University. I-le enjoys to-day
the distinction which belongs to no other living American, of being a life member by
legislative appointment of the Board of Trustees of the university of a great commonwealth.
This unique distinction has been conferred upon only one other man in all American
history-the late John S. Pillsbury of Minnesota, whose name stands highest on the roll
of honor of our great sister commonwealth. In electing him to this high position the
legislature of North Dakota signally honored itself. It elected him to a far more honorable
position than that of United States Senator or any other within the gift of the people of
this commonwealth. We believe that Mr. Budge himself feels this to be so.
In his Founders' Day address, on the occasion of the celebration of the twenty-first
anniversary of the founding of the University, President Merrifield alluded to Mr. Budge
in the following words, which shall conclude this sketch of the University's life member:
"Delightful and gracious as it would be to call the roster of these loyal eo-toilers of an
earlier day, their modesty would demur, I am sureg and it would not be easy to determine
just what names should be included where almost all, the later as well as the earlier
workers in the vineyard, have been so loyal and self-sacrificing. One name there is that,
like Abou Ben Adhenfs, leads all the rest. VVhoever else may have faltered and grown
discouraged, his zeal has known no abatement, and his loyalty and enthusiasm have been
dauntless and unquenchable. Many a blow aimed at the University has been intercepted by
his broad shoulders, and many a foe of the University has been turned to staunchest friend
out of sheer admiration of this man's unswerving loyalty to the institution through good
and through evil report. lf you ask me what has inspired this loyalty, this personal sacrifice
of time and money, this almost pathetic devotion to an institution whose activities are so
foreign to the whole experience and life of this man, l can only answer-if it be an answer-
that it is the product, in part at least, of that reverence for learning which is found in
almost every home in Scotland, from the stately mansions in the VVest Side district in
l'Cdinburgh to the humblest lisherman's hut on the storm-swept islands off the bleak north
coast. Nameless he shall be here-nor is there need to name him before this audience:
for so long as loyalty and nnseltishness are honored among men, his name will be cherished
in the hearts of North llakotans, and particularly in the hearts of all grateful sons and
daughters of the University, with a love and reverence, as compared with which for
preeiousness, the most brilliant scholastic attainments fade into insigniticancef'
A ROOM IN BUDGE HALL
Mid the rumble and shock of shunting trains
And the clang of the warning bell,
O'er the cindery path I pick my way,
Where darker the shadows fell.
As I pause to shun where the storm has left
A puddle shallow and foul,
A rift in the clouds let fall a ray
That transfigured the noisome pool.
There mirrored was seen the unfathomed blue,
NVhere, attendant stars among,
The crescent moon serenely moved,
A queen mid her courtier throng.
Even as I gaze, the vision fair
Has vanished without a trace,
The gloom returns and the night-wind stirs
The shallow's darkling face.
Comforted I pass on my lonely way,
As the thought my heart possessed:
In its lowest estate a soul may have
Some vision of the highest and best.
In foul degradation it still may have,
Midst the mire of its deepest fall,
Such glimpse of the glory and light on high
As the purest soul of all.
As that water foul, sun-drawn, shall rise
In the evening cloud to glow,
To mingle with the mist of the mountain brook
Or to crown proud peaks with snow,
Even thus may the sin-stained soul not rise.
Released from the mire of earth,
liver upward to strive, with the purest and best.
Toward the source that gave them birth?
The frailty we see, but not the excuse.
Chance, training. or inborn thrallp
lint trust we may in the justice and Love
That sees and measures all 1
Minutes for a Special Meeting of the Sophomores
EETING called to order by the president, Miss Sullivan. Miss Sullivan: "This
meeting has been called to discuss the cap question. You all know our caps have
been stolen. Now, what are we to do? Of course, we never expected to keep
them, but we thought that we'd have a tight over them anyway. Of course everybody
knows the Juniors would have taken them away from us and it isnt losing the caps that we
care' about, but it was such a dirty, sneaking, underhand trick! VVhat is your pleasure
in tie matter.
Moved by M1'. Mcllraith that the Juniors stole the caps: seconded by Miss XVard.
Discussion. Miss Ward: "1 saw two Junior girls in the telephone booth last night. They
telephoned to the Junior boys and told them to steal the caps. I didn't hear what they
said, but goodness gracious sakes alive! what else could they have been talking about?"
Mr. Mellraith, Mr. MeGauvran and Mr. Grandy: "Our trunks were locked, too!" Miss
Kirkf "Those capi cost 32.15 apiece, too, so of course the Juniors stole them." Motion
unanimous y carrier.
Moved by Mr. Brannon to cut out the Junior Ball. Seconded by Mr. S. Johnson.
Discussion. Mr. Davis: "VVe11, maybe we ought to do that, but it would be pretty hard
on some of us who have already made our arrangements." Mr. Brannon: "That would
be the best way to get even-ive, can keep it quiet and if they go on and have it without
us theyll come out in the ho e.
Miss VVard and Mr. McGauvran: "Oh, no! we don't want to cut out the Junior Ball."
Moved by Mr. Mahon to tell Prexy. Seconded by Mr. Mellraith. Motion carried.
Moved, seconded and carried that the president appoint such committees as she see tit
to take the matter in charge. Miss Kirk and Miss NVard were appointed to search the
Junior girls' rooms: Mr. Hoskins and Mr. Mcllraith were appointed to search the rooms
in Budge: Miss Truax and Mr. Ruud were appointed to confide in Prexyg and Mr. Mahon
was appointed as a committee of one to bluii the Junior girls into telling what happened
to those caps.
THE NAUGHTY SEVEN P F F
A Commercialistic Cupid
qrnzsr PRIZE POEMQ
xfVl'lCll Queen Aphrodite, sweet goddess of love,
First sent forth young Eros his 'weapons' to proveg
That never a maid he might fail to entice,
She gave her young god-sou some wholesome advice.
"The world is a planet rolled round through the sk
The people don't know it-they will by and by,
And, as it rolls on through its orbital range,
The people upon it are certain to change.
You therefore must learn in all nations and climes,
To join the procession and study the times.
Keep up with the fashions, whatever may come,
And do as the Romans whenever in Rome.
"Just now your white wings may be proper and nice,
But in ages to come they will hardly sufficeg
So be ready to don, when the wing market slumps,
A top hat and broadcloth, and neat patent 'pumps'
Your arrows so bright you must some day eradicate,
As they for your uses will cease to be adequate.
Now keep up the name of the family tradeg
Remember how all of your fortune was madeg
Be diligent, honest if possibleg but,
VVhatever you do, never get in a rut."
When the goddess had given this worthy advice,
She expanded her wings and was off in a triceg
When last the young Eros his gaze turned on high,
She was climbing a rainbow far up in the sky.
The golden age gone, with it romance and mystery,
No Homer is left to write Eros's history,
But surely some worthy biographer ought to
Transcribc his adventures in twelve volumes, quarto.
l only can hint his arrows were done
With exclusive achievements about the year one,
When a short sword, the shorter the better, made change,
For the Romans made love and war both at short ra
An ax for the Gothic invasion was needed,
And a lance in old England and France soon succeeded
VVhile wings were omitted for hauberk and casque,
And Eros in tourney and joust found his task.
Omittiug the time of the powdered peruke,
When the god tried to see just how old he could look,
When the swain far away from his love must be foun
For the maidens each needed an acre of ground,
Let us visit the modern apartment of Eros,
To see his business in these days will cheer us.
"Yes, this is his headquarters. Please to step in, sirg
Perhaps you will think that we make quite a din, sir
But husiness is booming and comes from such a distance
That we need quite an army of skillful assistants.
Now here is a telegram: I
'Miz Dan Cupid:
'The man you commend is so silly and stupid,
'l cannot accept 'till
I learn what you rate him,
'M rs. A. l.ovinggold.'
l have read it over verbatim."
"Of course you will offer another P" "Oh! no, sirg
This notion of love without wealth doesn't go. sir:
The man has a fortune in lirie preferred:
Shc'll accept when l answer, with never a word."

A Fall Term AH'air
The day is calm and bright and fair,
As Innis slowly parts his hair.
Thinks he, "I met her but on yester-eve,
And now the God of Love cloth weave
His tiny' tenclrils round my heart."
CWith thought and care his hair doth partj.
And soberly doth he debate,
Right careful doth he cogitate,
The question, shall he shave or not.
For on this ne'er forgotten day,
The game of love will lnnis play,
The stake, a maiden's heart.
., To-day the realms of "Fairyland"
Do boast a maiden, fair and grand,
Who pensive waits on Cottage steps.
X A maiden bright and fair to see,
N Blue-eyed and sunny-haired is she,
And Cupid strings his bow.
Then Innis strolls along the walk.
'fa X H brin s his smile and itt talk
e g w y
And arm in arm past Prexy's home
In perfect happiness they roam,
While Cupid smiles with joy.
But hark! Whose thundering footsteps break
Upon the ear? "Now this would make
An angel swear," says Innis boldg
For lo! 'Tis Pal, with anger black
His visage clouding o'er. Alack!
For Cupid's wily schemes.
With wrath is Innis thrust aside.
That he no more shall there abide
Is intimated on the side.
Crcstfallen, Innis slinks away,
While "Pal" strolls on so blithe and gay-
And happy Cupid smiles again. ,
The Great Game
Q QFIRST PRIZE STORYQ
LL was astir on Mt. Olympus. Even Jupiter was excited, and Mercury was well nigh
worked to death running errands for the celestials. Minerva must have a banner for
her staff, and Mars at the last moment sent in to Vulcan a rush order for a bunch
of colors and a megaphone. The pleasures of Elysian fields and the labors of Tartarus
were by decree of Iove suspended, the occasion being a football game to be fought out by
Earth's departed shades for the delectation of the Olympic celebrities. For months Pluto had
b d' t' the reparations of a gridiron in a bend of the River Styx. The field was a
een irec mg p E
replica of the plain of Marathon, Miltiades, as well as football authorities like Loomis and
Sweetland, were consulted that all might be exactly right.
When the time was at hand to call the game, the bleachers presented a scene such as
was never given to mortals to gaze upon. The section reserved for the gods and
goddesses was a sight that would have thrilled the heart of Homer. .In fact, it did, for
Homer was there, on the other side of the field. Here was Jupiter, jolly as a schoolboy,

Maria." Minerva, always in search of
wisdom, had equipped herself with a kodak.
Ceres was treating her friends to the
inexhaustible fruits of her cornucopia, and
Venus was casting sheep's eyes at Hercules,
whose consuming interest in athletics caused
him quite to forget the importunings of Cupid.
Vulcan, grimy from the smoke of his forge,
limped about renewing acquaintance witl1 his
fellow deities. Mercury made mischief while
the party waited.
The bleachers on the opposite side were literal-
ly occupied by "all sorts and conditions of men"

Socrates, her meek and gentle "partner." Diogenes had heard that Alexander was in the

But why all this excitement? Why a football game in such a place-of all places? It
all came about somewhat after this fashion: Many of the football shades had been causing
serious annoyance to old Cerberus, that
"Three-headed dog, as cruel as fate,
NVho guarded the entrance early and late,"
by avoiding him at the gate and slipping in and out almost at their pleasure. The authorities
differed as to what should be done. Said some, "Elysium's scarcely good enough for such
as they." "1 have a place in Tartarus reserved just for shades of their stripe," growled
Pluto, savagely. In fact, Pluto

sport. Never have shades enjoyed such

who viewed the game with consuming
interest. Mars, especially, had his

A great scene followed. Pluto personally congratulated the players and said that he
was really de-lighted with the result, as he had been much perplexed lately to find a suitable
place for them. "I feel much better," he said, "now that I have you off my hands." The
contestants were showered with congratulations and bouquets by the late spectators. Some
weptg others-well-knew not what to do! 'Twas a sight indeed to behold Cleopatra weep
tears of joy on Ward's shoulder, to witness "Brudder Bill' trying to escape the charms of
Carrie Nation, and to see Elizabeth playfully kiss Victor's blushing cheek.
The thundering applause that followed the close of the game left no doubt as to the
decree of the gods. A brief celestial council decided not to discriminate against football
shades, but to have at least twofootball games an aeon until the crack of doom!

With the many things forgotten that I should have held in store.
While I lay in this confusion, suddenly in bold protrusion,
Rose a weird, and strange delusion, calling plainly "English Four."

"Laus, Laus Deo evermore.'
Oh! what joy those sounds came bringing, I could scarcely keep from singing,
As I wildly seized my pencil to pile up the verse galore,
How m being filled with gladness, drove away all signs of sadness,
Brought my joy to verge of madness, how I laughed at English Four.
At the proud and haughty members of the class of English Four,
Famous poets evermore.

But I couldn't find a couplet out of all my lettered lore.

And I knew the Muse was singing as he did in days of yore.

Then I stood translixed in wonder, for in tones of pcaling thunder,
Rending all the air asunder, I could hear my roommate snore,

Snoring plainly. "English Four."

T was twilight on the prairie,
And the sun's descending rays
Lit up with sunset glory
All the mellow western haze.
I strolled awhile in silence
By the side of her I loved,
By whom my boyish fancy
Had so wondrously been moved.
And I tried to find a phrasing
That should tell the old, old tale,
Expressing my soul's great longing,
And the hope that I should not fail.
Then I asked her if she loved me,
And she paused a little while,
With her glorious eyes upon me
She replied, "Well, I should smile!"

Oxford as It Is Not
This very difficult to form a really correct opinion of Oxford after spending but one term
in its academic atmosphere. A First term is always unique in any college, and opinions
formed by the green "fresher" are almost invariably changed after more mature
experience. How, then, can an American "fresher" at Oxford presume to state anything
about that most English of all English schools? However, the crime will now be committed.
The architecture of Oxford reiiects the quiet beauty so characteristic of English land-
scapes. A subdued Gothic is the prevailing type, and well it behts the medieval character
of everything connected with this grand old institution of learning. The quaintness of
the town and its colleges is indeed a revelation to one coming from the rawanewness of
the Western states. As a matter of fact, none of the buildings are very old when compared
with many comparatively modern looking structures on the continent, yet everything seems
to bespeak ages long since past. There is none of the musty, motheaten appearance of the
old Harvard dormitories, but the giant elms, the shady walks, and the ivy-covered stones
suggest a venerable and beautiful old age. The new buildings, of which there are not a few,
are planned in harmony with the old lines of architecture and are built of a soft, gray
clolomitic limestone, which presents an aged appearance from the very first. The addition
of green English ivy completes the picture. The cjty authorities co-operate with the colleges
in perpetuating the medieval characteristicsg no railroads are permitted to enter the city
limitsg no electric cars are allowed on the city streets, and even the city cab horses must be
over twenty years of age.
The colleges are almost always built in the form of hollow squares, with adjoining
gardens, which are surrounded by high stone walls, on the tops of which are fixed iron
spikes and broken glass to keep in the wicked student. Anyone 'that is out after nine in
the evening is fined, while to be out after midnight is an unpardonable offense. ln addition
to these troubles, the unfortunate night prowler must wear his cap and gown, or run the
risk of being "progged" and fined again. In the morning the undergraduate must rise at
a very early hour to attend either roll-call or chapel at eight. For every infraction of this
rule, he is "gated," or locked in college after nine in the evening. These regulations, and
others which might be mentioned, seem very foolish to an American, and they certainly
do not tend to develop self-reliance. Breakfast and lunch are eaten alone in one's rooms,
being brought in by one's servant, the scout, but all the students and Dons eat dinner together
in Hall. This custom is a very pleasant feature of college life. Each table has a "head,"
whose duty it is to punish all infractions of the rules of etiquette by "sconcing" the
offender. A quart of beer is brought to the sconced and hc must either kiss the cup and
pass it around the table or drink its contents down without removing it from his lips. If
he succeeds in performing the latter feat, the others at the table are sconced a pint each.
There are many other quaint old customs too numerous to mention.
The treatment a freshman receives at Oxford is the exact opposite of that with which
he is favored in America. The English freshman is lord of all he surveys. The Dons
worry about his health, the third-year men are turned out of their rooms to make a place for
him, and the second-year men dine and wine him continually. His faithful servant, the
scout. is always at hand to give him information and to provide for his comfort, and his
tutor is always glad to talk to him as a father would. As soon as he is comfortably settled
in his rooms, which consist of a "sitter" and a "bedder," the upper-class men begin to call
upon him. During the hrst two weeks he can be sure of having from five to ten men in
his rooms every evening from eight until one ,or two in the morning. The Americans were
particularly favored in this respect, since everyone was anxious to see the wild Western
animals, and it had been reported that we were not dangerous, as our firearms had been
taken from us. After the fresher has met most of his elders in this manner, the second-year
men and the Dons begin to send him invitations to breakfast. The "breaker" is a very
heavy meal and quite informal, affording a most effectual method of forming acquaintances.
After breakfast, cigarettes and conversation are indulged in for an hour or more, the last
being most gracious and cordial, although next day he may "cut" his former guests
unmercifully on the High. This system of calls and breakers, aided by many five o'elock teas,
soon makes a pew man acquainted with his fellows and at home in his college.
Every true Oxonian devotes his afternoons to his physical development. Not a Don,
an undergraduate or a servant, can be found in college between the hours of two and fiveg
f 1 l o en air. Rowing is of course, the chief sport. Every

one watches the 'Varsity eight pass by, rowing seems quite simple enoughg but things are

F l . T raid men then fill up the vacant places in' the summer eights. Rowing has
reached ,such perfection in England because of the lnnghsh character. It does not require
much dash, but it does require a good constitution, excellent mind, a fair amount of beef
and muscle, and a very large share of quiet, bull-dog determination. The Americans do
not seem to be lacking in these qualities, as many of them are rowing in their college
toggers and some will doubtless appear in the summer eights. In the 'Varsity freshman
field sports last fall, American Rhodes scholars walked away with eight out. of ten events,
so that the Oxonians grew very fond of us at once. There are many other popular sports
which might be mentioned, but one that has been a "slave at the oar" every afternoon cannot
hope to describe rugger, soccer, hocky, or la crosse.
Turning rather abruptly from physical to mental training, we find that the English
system of education is so entirely different to that prevailing in the States that no comparison
can well be made. The university year consists of three terms of eight weeks each, thus

on their vaca 101 ' ,
to be utilized for the development of the social side of man's nature. The colleges are little
more than expensive and uncomfortable hotels. The student attends a few lectures, sees
his tutor now and then-a beastly bore-and develops his social nature by sitting for hours
gazing thoughtfully into the fireplaces of his friends. Yet, it must be acknowledged that
many men do study hard and that all attend strictly to business just before the few
examinations upon which so much depends. The examinations are not easy, but the passing
grade is only hfty per cent, so that it is not ditiicult to squeeze through them. lt is quite
a different thing to obtain a first or a second class.
Oxford does not offer the ambitious student much scope for his energies except along
l th of the classics, nor does she develop the self-reliance and systematic methods

of work which should fit him for his after life. Still, it cannot be denied that she has sent
forth the men who have governed and are governing England. She develops generous,
gentlemanly men. One never hears an Oxonian use profanity, or tell stories of doubtful
decency, or complain about the boarding department. I-le takes a deep interest in his

of the Wrathy Sophomore
T is a wrathy Sophomore, .
And he stoppeth one of three:
"By thy quivering lip and watery eye,
Now, wherefore stopp'st thou me?"
"The Junior Ball committee waits,
And I am on the list
The guests to hid, the hall to hire,
Begone!" clinched he his list.
He holds him with his shaking hand,
"There were some caps," quoth hey
"Clear out! Unhand me, poor young Soph,"
The Iunior's hand dropped he.
He holds him with his wat'ry eye,
The Junior man stands still,
And listens as a martyr would:
The Sophomore hath his will.
The Junior then leaned on the wall,
Who cannot choose hut hearg
And thus spake on that wrathy one,
The blear-eyed Sophomore:
"The door was barred, the trunk was locked,
Merrily did we swear
That on the morrow, first of all
We'd be, class caps to wear.
"Bnt,when the trunk we opened wide,
Of all those caps not one-
And still the door, the trunk, was shut-
How could the thing be done?"
The Junior gave a pitying look,
"You're off the track," he said,
"Or, maybe they were magic capsg
Or else you've lost your head."
And then the Sophomore did rant,
These threatening words spake he:
"Unless you give us hack our caps,
We will tell Prexy, sec?"
The Junior man he laughed with scorn,
And turned and trod away,
VVho hath to deal with hooks and balls
Can't talk of caps all day.
His Way and Hers
NCIE there was a jolly eo-ed,
And they called her fairy
just heeause she had a way
So very light and airy.

And they called him fool,

The Plain Girl vs. The Pretty One
T was a week before the football reception at the Presidents Several of the girls were
tall'in together when someone mentioned this fact. Then began an excited chorus
x g ,
of "Who's on the team? Who's on the team?i' There were two girls who said to
tl 1 isel es: "I-le will ask me if he doesn't ask her." Now one of these girls was petite
and dainty and brown-eyedg the other one was decidedly plain. It happened that the
football player in question liked both of these girls, but in entirely different ways. Miss
Brown-eyes was full of fun and the best of company. Her winsomeness had not been wasted,
l b the number of times he had already been her cavalier. And he liked her
as was prove: y --
wav of orderinff him about--mere slip of a thing that she was-and he did her bidding just
as faithfully and as quickly as he obeyed the signals on the gridiron. lhe other girl never
ve orders She was too independent to be waited upon-and too plain. But the boy
admired her very much. He came to her when he wanted to talk sense, or when piqued by
the teasing ways of the pretty girl. He worked debate with this girl and took her to church
and to lectures. They had some jolly times together. yet he sometimes caught himself
derin vth she didn't comb her hair as the other girl did.
won g f y .
To all appearances these girls had never felt the rivalry that existed between them.
At all events, as their eyes met now they understood, and each knew that the other knew.
But they smiled serenely at each other, for such is the way of girls. One thought: "l'm
pretty, but you are so clever !" And the other said to herself: "You don't know very much,
but, oh! your eyes and your cheeks!" So it was Beauty against Brains.
As the study-bell rang the girl with a brother on the team said, laughingly, "Oh, well,
' ls lo 1't mind if you miss this, for the leap-year dance is coming in a couple of weeks."

And thereupon the girls separated, the plain girl with a sudden, mighty resolve in her
The next morning she was waiting at the library door when the janitor came to unlock
it. She sat down at a table near the door. Soon her patience was rewarded, and the
football player appeared. He sat down beside her and they began to talk of various things.
Suddenly the girl, quite unconcernedly, asked him if he wouldn't go to the leap year dance
with her. This being answered in the afiirmative, they talked on till, at length, when the
librarian arrived, the girl rose to go. The boy followed her out into the hall. "Say," he
said, "wouldn't you like to go to the reception at Prexy's?". The girl hugged herself
mentally, but hesitated. "Well, I can't say just now," she answered, "but I'll tell you this
Later, when the plain girl brushed her hair for dinner, the face that smiled back at
her from the mirror somehow did not seem so plain as it had the night before. And the
' ' l l es and their owner thought bitterly,
m ht of the reception there were tears in tie Jrown ey
"l'd just as soon have eyes of no particular color if I only had a little bit of brains to go
with them." But even then she didn't understand the full value of brains.
VVONDER, oh, I wonder,
As I sit here lost in thought,
If "Old Pal" will go on crihbing,
Or if some clay hc'Il he caught.
If, while he is here on earth,
Young Ruud will cease to grind,
If Marsh will ever like the girls,
If Kim will change his mind.
If Williams still will wear a smile,
And Coulter pun away,
And Fred be just as giddy
As he always is today.
If J. F. T. will wiser be,
And Shadow stoutcr grow,
And lnnis always tease and joke,
And Burtness still he slow.
I wonderg oh, I wonder
If all these will be the same
In ten or twenty years from now
Each at the self-same game?

EING utterly worn out in mind and body, I fell asleep over a poem for English IV.
And as I slept I dreamed and lo! I stood before the gate of heaven, and they would
not let me enter. "What are my sins? l prithee tell me !" I cried to Peter. He looked on
me amazed. "Knowest thou not?" he said. "Then will I tell thee." And in a low and
awful tone did he repeat to me these words: "Thou hast swiped two bowls of sugar from
table eleven at the commonsg thou hast escorted an innocent young thing to the theater
'th t first aining permission from the Preceptressg thou hast complained of the fare,
whereof thougshouldst have partaken in silenceg thou hast hidden behind a chair at the
girls' weekly house-meeting and listened to what was never intended for ears of mang thou
hast walked the track when thou shouldst have been rehearsing thine orationg thou hast
stolen a ride on the street carg thou hast"-but I heard no more. "Oh, tell me," I cried,
in great fear and trembling, "what is to be my punishment?" Peter looked at me long,
d tl 1 said' "Purgatory was not meant for such as thou. Long hast thou taken thy
an len ie . . -
meals at the commons-any punishment we could inflict would be too tame for thee. But
't' Tl shalt in sooth be punished none the less. Go back to the commons and end
wal . ion , ,
y0ur days there!" The awful sentence ended, cold sweat broke out over me and I awoke.

O remember, though to regret,
Is better far than to forget,"
So you, oh "U" girl, hoard each day
Nothings gathered along the way:
Nose-guards and helmets of bloody hue,
Battered armor that has all passed through
The wild, rough rush and gallant play,
And fierce, mad strife of a football day!
The shoulder-straps from a coat of blue
CUnder it beat a heart ne'er truelg
Mere shreds of banners, soiled and gory,
All there is left to tell the story
Of some historic class-day fight,
That lasted from dawn till late at night.
Pressed flowers from days in early spring
That serve somehow to gently bring
Those long, long walks down "lovers' lane"
Back, fresh and sweet, to mind againi
The medals won at some track meet,
Given by heroes, strong and fieetg
Old dance programs by the score
That tell of mirth, and ioys of yoreg
Filched spoons that serve in various ways
To call up feasts of other days,
Opera stubs, poor tokens they,
Of happy hours now past awayg
Bits of ribbon of every shade
That inventive youth has ever made
Into colors, for school or class or team-
Oh, they conjure up dream on dream
Of popularity, power and fame
That cast their glamor o'er many a name,
And caps Chow sad but, oh, how true!
These caps through which they talked to youj
Now worn upon your dainty head,
But call up "hankerations" dead.
Oh, "U" girl, whom we strive to please,
We know why you are hoarding these.
