" If I lose a scruple of this sport,
Let me be boiled to death with melancholy."
66 RIENDS, Romans and countrymen," and ye 151' malloc in
general, lend us your ears, eyes and attention I The
Prestidigitateur stands before you, and, while he yet
speaks, he suddenly withdraws the cloth that screens
the hidden mystery upon his table, and lo ! he reveals to your as-
tonished gaze-the model class I Whose deeds and misdeeds are
herein duly set forth and chronicled for the benefit of posterity.
Yes, We hear your applause, and in the name of the class, THE REC-
ORD Committee bows its acknowledgment thereof g yet, at the same
time, it-that is, We-that is, the Committee-desires to offer a few
Words by Way of a " starter "--as a sort of " sherry and bitters "-in
order that our appearances and intentions may not be misconstrued.
fmpvimis, THE RECORD Committee takes this opportunity of thrust-
ing upon its readers the -th consecutive product of the budding
literary genius of a Senior Class. This same genius, as we have inti-
mated, buds annually with greater or less success g but the present
RECORD Committee of the Class of Ninety calls the meeting to order
with a modest sense of its entire ability to carry its vast project
through to success, and so makes no apology for living. Do not,
indulgent reader, blame this self-satisfied air with which you will
observe We are impregnated. It is not our fault-Neilson is a
member of the Committee.
As to THE RECORD itself, the statement may not be out of place
that it is the iirst, last and only literary production of the class, for
which fact some-perchance all-of our readers may be thankful
on arriving at our eastern terminus. The Committee appreciates
the fact that it runs a fearful risk in calling its production Zz'z'e1'a1jf,
when judged by the standard of the work-pm' excellence-of the
19th century-" The Structure of English Prose 3 " but then it
is bold, you know, and presumes on the dictum, " A cat may look
at a king." THE RECORD, as a iirst production, doubtless has
many blemishesg but as a latest production -the Committee hopes
that the indulgent reader Qplease pardon the triteness of this expres-
sionj will see in its pages much that is worthy of Commendation, as
well as of honest mirth. To all those who fail to derive amusement
from them we would suggest a visit to an M.D. for treatment ofthe
liver. Nothing else will suiiice. -
But further comment on THE RECORD would be out of place.
We have made our entrance, our bow, and we have struck the key-
note. If THE RECORD has any trumpet to blow, it will crack its
own cheeks in the attempt to catch the pitch given by the Com-
mittee. It only remains for us to tender our most heartfelt thanks
to the Faculty in general, and to Little Lord McElroy in particular,
all of whom, by the considerate offer of their persons to be trans-
Hxecl, like modern St. Sebastians, with the arrows of trenchant wit,
have materially helped us in making THE RECORD what it is. For
what it is not, or for what it mzlghz' be, the Committee declines to
hold itself responsible.
, " Lay on, Mac Duff!
And damned be he that first cries, 'I-Iold, enough !"'

JAMES HARTLEH' MERRICK.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: A
BOUT this time four years ago the Class of '90 made its iirst
appearance on the stage of Old Penn. Since that time we
have developed many original characteristics, but our start
Was made in a thoroughly orthodox manner, and Without
any of the thrilling incidents that sometimes attend the
dibuz' of a Freshman Class. As the humble historian of the Class
of 790, I cannot lay claim to more than the average number of
names, nor can I promise you an exhaustive history of the YVharton
School and its members from the time of its glorious inception to
the present day, as has been the custom of late years 3 nevertheless,
in the face of these disadvantages, I shall presume to hope that
when my duty is done all those who are interested will have some
knowledge of the honorable career of the Class of '9o.
When we arrived on the scene of action, numbering somewhere
in the neighborhood of seventy-ive, we were accorded the usual
pleasant reception that is tendered- annually, to Freshmen by the
genial Secretary of the Faculty. This reception is held not so much
for the purposes of examination as to enable the Secretary to
determine the names and ancestral records of his victims, and to
iind out just how many come from jersey.
A bright-looking youth, with glasses, who was then among our
number, somewhat inadvertently remarked to his companion, "Oh!
say! who the deuce is that old cuss over there with the gray beard ?"
It is said that jackson overheard the remark, and that explains
why john Barker is not with us to-day. Perhaps if john had done
nothing more, matters might have been smoothed overg but his
luck was proportionate to his size, and was always against him.
About the middle of our college course the Executive Committee
held one of its periodical sessions, and Barker was among the in-
vited guests. john had been slightly irregular in his attendance,
and jackson, who felt a kindly interest in John after his remark
about him, had sought to discover from John's paterfamilias the
reasons for his non-attendance. But john had arranged matters
with the postman, as the " If not delivered in five days, return to
F. A. I., University of Pennsylvaniaf, clearly indicated the source
of the letters. After considerable questioning John finally ad-
mitted that aletter had come to the house that morning bearing
the mystic signs. "What did you do with it, Mr. Barker,"
said jackson, in his softly-modulated accent. "Why," replied
john, "father was away, and I threw it in the waste-basket. I
thought it was an advertisement P' The occurrence widened the
breach between them, and john left us rather than make things
disagreeable for Jackson by remaining.
But this digression is somewhat premature, and I shall return to
the opening of college in September of 1886. It may not be out of
place just here to state the fact that the Faculty, with an eye to
the eternal fitness of things, proposes hereafter to open college on
October the ISt, instead of the 2ISt of September. The reason for
this becomes at once apparent to those of us who have taken Dr.
Kendall's course in Astronomy, inasmuch as the Zodiacal Sign for
the month of October is Capricornus, or the Goat, and all those
who are born into the University under this sign will of course re-
ceive J'ackson's special supervision and attention.
There were five classes at the University when loo materialized:
the Senior Class, the Junior Class, the Sophomore Class, the
Freshman Class, and the Frazier Ashhurst Class. The latter was
by far the most numerous, and held all the important college
oiiices 5 but circumstances over which it had no control Qzle., the
Facultyj compelled it to disband, and in consequence We were forced
to stand its early loss. A
Of course the first thing, or one ofthe first things, a Freshman
Class does is to forin a Class organization, and 'go immediately held
a meeting for that purpose. We Were all of us youngand inex-
perienced, and were anxious to elect a President who would be an
ornament to the Class. The meeting was becoming disorderly,
when somebody in the room spied a large red mustache. That Was
enough. A rising vote was taken, and the red mustache was
elected President with acclamation. It turned out, upon inquiry,
that the red mustache belonged to Billy Hart, and it is enough to
say that Billy was not only an ornament to '90, but that he would
have been an ornament to any Class.
Billy was one of those men who became sated with the gayeties
of life at an early age, and even the Wild, tumultuous excitement of
an hour with Schelling palled on his jaded taste. He had a bad
habit of interrupting Schelling, during recitation, with questions
that did not always bear on English literature, such as, "Professor
Schelling, what do you consider fast time for a horse to trot a mile
in? " or, U Professor, do you prefer champagne-cocktails to mint
juleps ? " and the like. I am afraid Schelling did not always take
these questions in the spirit in which they were asked, as he seemed
to feel bound to consult With Little Lord McElroy with regard to
Hart's purpose, and the subsequent threats of " Faculty case,
gentlemen," etc., that came from the little back room were not reas-
suring. Billy did not stay long with us, as his emzuz' became too
powerful for him, and he is at present occupied in seeing how many
different horses he can ride out Walntit Street in one afternoon.
Most of our time during Freshman year was occupied in cane-
iights, bag-fights and rushes with that incomplete collection of
back numbers that left college last year, and which masqueraded
under the soubriquet of " '89.', And those were veiy lively times,
too. I regret to state that the feelings which governed these con-
tests were sometimes uncliaritable, and led to angry altercations.
The only trouble about them was their onesidedness, as, with the
brotherly aid- of '88, we invariably came out on top.
Whether it was that '89 recognized our prowess as iighters, or
whether the Y. M. C. A. had gained an influence over their leaders,
" deponent sayeth not." At all events, the mid-year examination
came and went without a bowl-fight, and ,QO was forced to stand by
and witness the wanton overthrow of a good old custom.
Eighty-nine did many other curious things, but '90 is indebted
to her for two valuable gifts, Coulston and Newlin. These two
men worried along with '89 as long as they could, and it was not
long before they reached the limit of human endurance -and threw
in their lot with ,9O. Neither of them, I may say, has regretted it.
The change enabled Newlin to work in a year more with Schel-
ling, who has stood by De Lancey through thick and thin-some
times a good deal too close for De Lancey's comfort and peace of
mind. The climax was reached not long since by Schelling refer-
ring rather rudely to " Del " as the " Devil's Advocate," a remark
which "Del" resented by rising in his seat, taking off his coat,
and offering to " do " Schelling on the spot. If Newlin remained
for another year, I fear that his recitations would have to be made
to Schelling with iron bars between them to avoid riot and blood-
Warrie Coulston early discovered that his forfe was business-
managing. Indeed, it is said that one of his reasons for leaving
'89 was on account of the failure of his attempts to business-manage
C. P. B. jefferys, Ir. QI have not time to give you his whole namej.
Since then he has been business-manager of the Glee Club, of THE
RECORD, of the Red and Blue, and at last accounts he was nego-
tiating for the business-managership of the Trustees 5 but since his
connection with the Rad ami Blue he has lost much of that sang
1701227 Qfdngliff, an incalculable sum of moneyj that characterized
his former methods.
Our Freshman year saw the laying of the foundation of that
,glittering array of athletic victories for which 'go justly feels proud.
It all began with the baseball nine, under the direction of Charlie
Boyer. The newspaper accounts the next day were disagreeable
-enough to report the game as "Freshmen on a Leather Hunt, 'y
and, so far as that goes, the same might be said of our team as it
stands now, for never since then has the nine struck the winning
combination, or the ball. It was through no fault of ours, however,
as f' Buck " Trotter has played on the nine right straight through,
and anyone who has ever seen " Buck" playing baseball knows
that his errors are few QPQ, and that his efforts as a fielder are untiring.
lfVe had no crew in Freshman year, owing to lack of suitable
material, but we did as well as Freshmen usually do in tennis,
-cricket and football. Our sports, looked at from a numerical stand-
point, were a great success. Howard Sypher would, in all likeli-
hood, disagree with this statement, as he entered every event and
carried off-but no ! that was just the trouble 5 there was nothing
for him to carry off, as the committee had neglected to provide
prizes. Ever since then, at stated periods, motions have been made
.at the meetings to present Sypher with the fourteen medals he won,
but, as regularly, defeat has overtaken the motion, and Sypher is
.still the Class' creditor. '
Before going on to the events of Sophomore year, I cannot
refrain from recording Ben Allen's attempt to establish a Freshman
Dance. Ben had been taking dancing lessons for about three
months before he came out to college, and his little feet were aching
'to move to the seductive strains of Waldteufel. He gathered to-
gether a chosen few, and made his startling proposition. Steps
were about to be taken to put his plans into operation, when it was
discovered that only two other men in the Class knew how to
dance. Of course, this put a stop to everything, and Ben's disap-
pointment was keen, as it was afterward learned that he had already
invited six girls to be present.
Sophomore year arrived. Some few members of the Class did
not. "Somnus" Haines had fallen asleep in june previous, and
had not been able to arouse himself in time to 'connect with the
opening of college. Haines was never by any possible chance
awake, except when a corner-ight was going on, even then the
only way he could keep himself from going to sleep was by swear-
ing at George Henderson and '89. Herbert Charles Brown, Esq.,
grew tired of the Class because there were no representatives of
the families of jones, Smith or Robinson to keep him company,
and the loneliness became oppressive' to him. There were a few
other desertions from the ranks, but the majority stood fmn.
There is something in the atmosphere of Sophomore year
which produces a strong disinclination for work, together with
the opposite inclination, quite as strongly developed, for play.
Tommy Royal, Atherton Harlan and Cherub Stevens formed them-
selves into a Society for the Promotion of Disorder in Seidensticker's
Room, which held daily meetings, with more or less unique results.
The toy-stores in the neighborhood were drained of their torpedo
supply, and " Seidy" was kept in "a constant state of expectancy
bordering on insanity. For some reason or other, the air in
'fSeidy's " room was never free from one or more toy-balloons,
which gave " Pomp" considerable annoyance, as it always fell to
his lot to ish them down between hours.
Of course, it was necessary that some recreation be provided
for those of us who were unfortunate enough not to take Gennan.
VVe found it in Dr. Muhlenberg's room. The Faculty made a few
changes in the. roster at the beginning of the term, and placed our
hour in Greek prose just before recess. This enabled Dallas, Neil-
son and Trotter to extend their recess from half an hour to an hour
and a half, as the Doctor always excused them after roll-call. The
Doctor understood us, as a rule, pretty well, but one day he lost
his bearings. The room had been unusually quiet, and nothing
had occurred since the beginning of the hour, when john Brinton
came into the room with a train of tin-cars tied to his coat-tail.
After the cars had been confiscated by the Doctor, and put into his'
bottom drawer, the recitation proceeded. Suddenly, a large croquet-
ball rolled along the upper row of seats and fell down in front of
the old gent1eman's feet. A death-like stillness followed, and
Coulston looked unconscious. The Doctor adjusted his spectacles,
hesitated a moment, and then said, " Mr. Trotter, did you do that,
sir?" H No, sir."-" Mr. Dallas, did you do that, sir?" 'tNo,
sir."--"Mn Brinton, did you do that, sir ? " " No, sir."-K' Very
well, then, Mr. Neilson, you may withdraw, sir! " and Warrie
smiled sadly as he thought how cruelly the old gentleman had been
For some reason of his own, the Doctor could never quite get
used to the students wearing caps and gowns-a movement that
was set on foot soon after the beginning of the term, and which
lasted for some time-and from the very iirst he regarded them with
suspicion, as concealing some device for creating disorder. One
day, we entered his room, in single iile, with our gowns tied round
the waists with cord. Fred Neilson was the last man in ile, and
by the time he reached the door the,Doctor was in a towering
passion. He strode over to the door, and, catching sight of Fred's
nose, he cried, f' Mr. Neilson, you may retire, sir. 'We do not Wish
to see your face again! " We did all we could to get him to change
his mind, but he was relentless, and Fred stayed away for some
time. The Doctor did not appreciate all we did for him, or how
we tried to beguile his hours with psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs. He was even callous to Dallas' celebrated imitation of the
Hute, accompanied by a full orchestra, and the many little amuse-
ments we got up for his benefit fell quite flat.
Among the other things that occurred during the nrst term of
Sophomore year the football eleven won a game. We came very
near not putting a team in the iield, as we had received numerous
petitions from the other classes begging to be given a chance 5 but
our usual magnanimity and courtesy prevailed, and we decided it
would not be fair to the others to withdraw. We presented a game
to '88 and '89 apiece out of respect to their age, but ,QI we turned
upon and trounced to the tune of 6-o. The game was doubtful till
near the end, when a beautiful run by Hermann Fleck and a goal
by Neilson gave us the victory.
just as the teams were leaving the field, YVhite, of the Fresh-
man Class, so far forgot himself as to wave a small flag aloft, with
,QI on it. Feeling was running pretty high at the time, and lVhite
was hustled from the grounds. Outside, the ight grew to enormous
proportions, and four " cops H from the Twenty-first District Station
fput there so as to be near the Universityj swooped down and made
several arrests, which included our own Stevens and Burger.
"Cherub,', as usual, was smoking a cigarette, and attracted the
" cops' H attention first, Burger came next, and he was run in
because he remarked to his captor -" that he was impervious to
arrest." Both were bailed out by 'A Otto " later on, and great re-
The Fall Spoits Qand the Spring Sports as wellj in Sophomore
year added fresh laurels to '9o's already lengthy list of victories.
Ashton Little temporarily turned his attention from the fair sex
and devoted himself assiduously to jumping and hurdle-racing.
He was successful at the start, but he has since been barred out of
all such contests, as the referees claim that he has patent telescopic
legs. joe Mitcheson, when his time was not occupied in listening
to the dulcet strains of his own mouth up in " Scientifj' or in talk-
ing about Frank Dole, gave himself up to Walking. By dint of
hard work joe has secured several " firsts," and has reflected great
honor upon the Class at different periods. He has also secured
several appropriations from the Class, ostensibly to pay Dole. The
last time he did this he was caught using it as an entrance-fee for
a six days' " go-as-you-pleasej' and no more appropriations were
made. In addition to a few other trifling peculiarities, Mitcheson
is never without a question in his mouth, and the odds are large
'that when Doomsday arrives Joe will ply the Archangel with multi-
tudinous questions, as he is being carried off to T wherever it is
he is going.
Examinations came down on us like "the wolf on the fold."
Billy Harland found himself unable to resist the attractions of the
dissecting-room, and went over to the Medical Department. Joe
Patterson had a position offered to him as president of a bank,
which he promptly accepted, with the condition that he would not
have to be on hand before I2 noon. Trivy Dallas was unable to
stand the strain imposed upon him by the roster, and retired for a
yea1"s rest. VVhen next seen, he bobbed up serenely in 791, where
he had friends. jay Gates and Bennie Allen both found college
irksorne, and fled into business, leaving breaks in the ranks which
have not since been Hlled,
After exams. came the bowl-ight. There was no particular
reason why we should have had one, and we mzlghi have followed in
the illustrious footsteps of our weak-kneed predecessors. But '90
has never been weak-kneed, whatever else she may have been, and
a careful retrospection will disclose the fact that the number of
microbes on '9o's bowl-iight is exceedingly small. The Faculty
wanted to stop itg '89 wanted to stop itg and these two reasons were
alone sufficient for having it: so have it we did, and although we
were unable to form a compromise between Starr, the bowl-man,
and the bowl, the bowl remained intact. In the hour of victory it
was stolen from us by the " Meds," but it was soon after returned,
and to-day remains as a souvenir of one of the hardest-fought bowl-
fights the 'Varsity has ever seen.
The opening of the second term brought with it the introduc-
tion to the Class of two celebrated freaks-"Artie" Goodspeed,
A.B. QI-Iarvardj, and Dr. A. H. P. Leuf. Our time with " Artie'
was chiehy spent in giving him a good deal of inside information
about mechanics, more or less of which was new to him. His
opinion of the Class was high from the very start, but when one
day lfVarrie Coulston told him, in answer to a question, that a
pound was delined as the Zezzgvffz of a standard bar kept at Paris, his
admiration knew no bounds, indeed, so trustful did he become,
that at the end of the term he passed the whole Class on an aver-
age of " inferior," and " no questions asked."
To Dr. Leuf, better known as the Mis-Director of Physical
Neglect, we are indebted for a very interesting series of two lectures
on Hygiene, in the course of which the "genial doctor" success-
fully illustrated the fact that arm-chairs may be thrown at a pro-
fessor, while lecturing, without danger of personal injury. It was
a lucky thing for the Trustees that Leuf stopped lecturing when he
did 3 otherwise they would have been compelled to rebuild Sadtler's
room, instead of merely having to refurnish it.
Speaking of Sadtler, I may say that it was just about this
time that "Jake " left us for parts unknown, and a new 'fjakeu
came to take his place. No one knows just why "jake I" left,
but it is rumored that the fearful strain incident to his running
continually after tapers for Sadtler broke down his health. Sadtler
never by any chance had a light at hand, and when Hjakie H would
bring him the regulation wax-taper he invariably prefaced his ex-
periments Qwhich just as invariably failedj by the startling
announcement, "I have here a lighted taper, " and this, in turn,
was usually followed by the no less startling piece of information,
" This was known a'ready to the alchemists "-remarks which were
always received with applause. It would not be right to pass over
this year Without referring to those memorable hours with young
Kendall in calculus. Only two men in the Class owned books,
and the rest of us didntt know what calculus meant. The hours
were passed, as a rule, by Kendall leaving us to our own sweet
will after roll-call, and while he and cousin Sam Wylie went across
the street, the rest of us played 'F-poker " and drew funny pictures
on the board.
And here it becomes my duty to record the saddest event in
the whole of '9o's history-the death of William lfVilson Barr, Jr,
our Sophomore President. YfVhen death removed Barr from our
midst, it removed a man whose every characteristic stamped him
as belonging to that class of human beings who are men in every
sense of the word. Upright in his mode of life, honest in every
word and action, and devoted to his class, his untimely death came
as a great shock to his classmates. We had known him only for
two years, but in that short time he had endeared himself to every-
one, and when he was called away from us he left a vacancy which
no one but himself could ill. Barr died on the 22d of May, and
when the time came for our cremation, none of us had the heart
to carry out the programme with the sad circumstances of his
death still uppermost in our minds, and out of respect to his mem-
ory the Class of '90 held no cremation ceremonies.
There is one member of the Class who has perpetrated a deed
almost too fearful to be mentioned. Harlan had concealed himself
one day in a doorway in the lower hall to avoid detection by the
Silver Fox in some vast misdemeanor. He avoided Scylla, but in
so doing he ran headlong into Charybdis. jackson was passing at
the time, but " Ath " thought it was Tommy Royal Qwho was always
on hand to help " Ath" out of his scrapesj, and EMBRACED him !
Ninety claims that this is the first time on record that anyone has
ever embraced jackson.
The last scrape Harlan got into produced unexpected results.
It was almost the end of the term. The attendance on Dr. Muhlen-
berg's hours was very slim, as several men had been permanently
excused. One day Harlan told us he had a good scheme on hand,
and the next day every man in the Arts was in his place in " Muh-
ley's" room, waiting for Harlan's scheme. The recitation was half
over, when proceedings were interrupted by a shower of old boots,
shoes and bits of cast-off clothing, which fell all over the room.
The scheme was eminently successful from a disorderly standpointg
but poor Harlan again put himself on record, and plunged squarely
into Easton while making his . escape down the stairs. Oddly
enough, Easton reported the occurrence to the Faculty, and that
distinguished body, after due consultation, came to the conclusion
that aman of Harlan's ingenuity should be given more room in
which to expand 'his talent. The shock was too much for poor old
" Muhley," and he handed in his resignation, which was accepted.
With Muhlenberg's departure Sophomore year came to a close. In
one way, Doctor Muhlenberg's withdrawal from the chair of Greek
was a great gain. It gave the College Faculty time to turn their
august attention to something else besides " Faculty cases," which
had become so common that even Little Lord McElroy ceased to
use them as terrifying threats for Freshmen. On the other hand,
we lost in the person of Doctor Muhlenberg one who was always
ready to be our friend, and I doubt whether there was one of us
who was not sorry when the old gentleman left.
In due course, the fall of 1888 arrived, and with it the Class of
'90 as juniors. Alas! our ranks had been depleted. It was not
" the Class, the Whole Class, and nothing but the Class " that as-
sembled at the opening of college. Many men were conspicuous
by their absence. Tommy Royal, Ath Harlan, Ben Griffith and
Samuel had all dispersed, and Seidensticlcer, in consequence, took a
new lease of life. Samuel had cast in his lot with the army of
Benedicks, and found that family duties and college could not con-
nect. Gridith found himself unable to stand the Worries of college
life, and Went off to take charge of the Philadelphia agency of
"Recamier Balm," with himself as a living advertisement of its
wonderful effects. " Nanki Pooh " Stubblebine came to grief While
attempting to cross the Tropic of Capricorn fusj, which he found
adverse to him, and so he left to become aSenior at Ursinus College.
But our desertions were more than made up by the advent of a
large and healthy body of High School graduates, Who descended
gracefully upon the Class like White-winged doves, and imparted
a fresh vigor to it that before was lacking. Some of them have
achieved distinction in the Class. Frederick Shaw Nelson, who
took the architectural course, became a Hrm friend of Prof. Rich-
ards, and so far worked upon his feelings that he obtained permis-
sion to smoke cigarettes in the " Drawing-room," and since then
he has done nothing else. Walters and Osbourn have demonstrated
that Work is a large factor in a scientific courseg in fact, Walters
worked so hard toward the end of the year that his health gave
way, and he had great difficulty in persuading the Faculty of his
ability to complete his course. Walters has never " cut " an hour
since he entered college, and-but enough said. This is a his-
tory, and not a fairy tale. '
Another notable man is Chester Farr. Chester Farr has two
missions in life: one of these is never to brush his hairy and the
other, always to wear a pleasant smile. He is fond of women's
society, and this in some measure accounts for the fact that his
Class has given him the Uspoonf' As Class Prophet, this fact
will also be noticed as contradicting the prevalent opinion that a
prophet is not without honor save in his own country.
junior year is the period in college life when everybody settles
down to work. The elective system also begins at this time.
There is a subtle connection between these two apparently discon-
nected statements which Warrie Coulston, Del Newlin or John
Brinton will point out to you. Fuller information may be obtained
by buying their book Qa joint workj, entitled " How to Elect aSnap
Course H fpublished by H. A. Rennert, Esq., Bostonj.
A large number ofthe Class went into the Civil and Mining
Engineering Departments, in order to have more time with Barker.
than 'is provided in the regular roster. Howard Sypher was
anxious to go with the crowd: 'but Barker was impolite to him, and
Jackson wanted him to take another year in Latin, and between
the two he became so distracted that at the end of the year he en-
tered the Law Department, in order that he might be able to argue
his own case against these two worthies in the courts, and save the
expenses of a master.
The real objectlofjunior year, however, is to permit students
to enter the YVharton School. It would be presumption on my
part to tell you that the Wharton School is the embodiment of
modern culture and enlightenment, or that it was for this reason
that Trotter, Audenried and Stoyle Qnot to mention little " Kushie Nj
saw iit to enter it. After some months of training, " Buck " Trot-
ter was able to run downstairs from McMaster's room to the As-
sembly Room, and back, in the short space of an hour. One day
James--asked him what the powers of the President of the United
States were. " Buck " thought for a moment, and then replied:
" The President shall have power to fill his vacancy during the
distress of the Senate, who shall expire at the end of their next
sessionf' This is suiiicient to illustrate the thorough course of
training aiforded by the Wharton School to all those of its students
who, like " Buck " and Lew Audenried, are really in earnest about
Ourusual ill-luck attended us this year in our eiforts to put a
crew on the water. Up to within a week of the races our prospects
for carrying off the Powel cup were ofthe brightest description, and
the eight men in the boat had been brought up to a state as near
perfection as well could be, through the untiring efforts of Howard
Sypher and Q'Colonel" Diggles. But good fortune declined to
smile on us. Toni -Whitney was obliged to give up his place,
owing to an injury to his handg and Strader, who happened at the
time to be in ,QO Che has been in every other class and department
in college at different periodsj "went lame U two days before the
race. But the " six " stuck to their boat, and, by as plucky an ex-
hibition of rowing as anyone could wish to see, managed to keep
out of last place. Since that stroke of misfortune, '90 has entered
no crew in the races.
The sports this year brought ,QO a few scattered but well-
earned laurels. Ashton Little won the "'hurclle" C120 yardsj,
and at the same time broke the College recordg while joe Mitcheson
gathered in the mile-walk. We bore our blushing honors with be-
coming modestyg in fact, we always haveg and such exhibitions
as these go to prove the assertion that ,QO .cfm come to the front when
luck is not against her.
At the beginning of the term the Class made three new
acquaintances among the professors-Barker, Fullerton and Lam-
berton-a rose between two thorns, as it were. I mention Profes-
sor Barker tirst, because it is only natural for us to wish to get
through as soon as possible with whatever is unpleasant. Our
Class had the usual falling-out with his Royal job-lots, the usual
committee was appointed to interview him, and it all resulted in
the usual abject apology, in fact, history simply repeats itself.
Our hours with Barker became so monotonous that the Little
Artie Goodspeed Divertissement Club was formed for the sole pur-
pose of casting gibes at little " Me Too I " while Barker was strug-
gling with some refractory " trick." The club also aided Good-
speed in his attempt to catch the volatile sunbeam, and was even
heard to laugh loudly one day when Barker made a break and
asked Goodspeed "to turn on the sun." Barker never liked ,9O,
and in this respect alone he resembles '89 and Schelling. 'QI apolo-
gize for mentioning them in the same breath.j The Class also begs
to be excused from being fond of Barker.
Professor Fullerton spent the whole of this year in plonghing
up the weeds of realism, which clogged the brains of the Class,
with such telling effect that now a powerful microscope would be
needed to reveal the slightest traces of anything that is not in strict
accordance with Berkeley. In fact, the Class of 'go is now QI say
it all with modestyj an " ideal " class, and in Professor Fullerton
it most assuredly had an " ideal " professor.
Professor Lamberton was elected by the Trustees to fill the
vacancy in the chair of Greek, caused by Doctor Muhlenberg's res-
ignation. As a man of learning, Lamberton commands the greatest
respectg as a professor in relation to his pupils, " Colonel " Dig-
gles would describe him, in the words of Punch, as " one of those
things one would rather have left unsaidf' ,
There are several occurrences connected with the University
which took place in our junior year. " Otto " Reuning, who for
several collegiate generations back had cheered and comforted
thirsty students, and who has sheltered countless "bowl-men,"
had a collision with the High License Law, and came out second
best. The Faculty were not unmindful of all that 'f Otto " had done
in time past for the students, and to make matters sure they made
him Clerk of the Faculty, at a salary of 38 cents a week, and so
have kept him out of harm's way.
The corner-stone of the Library Building was laid on October
15th, 1888, and the structure is now practically hnished. It serves
the double purpose of giving "Tommy " Richards something to
swear at whenever conversation lags, and it also gives little Gregory
B. Keen something with which to occupy his time when not other-
wise employed in ejecting, with the assistance of Miss T imley, the
disorderly element of the Class from the present library. If Little
Gregory goes to an untimely grave his dissolution will be charge-
able entirely to " Colonel " Diggles and Gamon, together with joe
Penniman, all of whom have conspired to make him lead a very
Ourjunior year also saw the institution of Dr. Boardman's series
of Sunday Afternoon Lectures, at which " Cherub " Stevens, Frank
Ford and lVarren. Hale were regular attendants. It likewise saw
the beginning Qin its present formj of the Lecture Association,
which has done so much to spread abroad the name of Old Penn,
but, above all in importance to us, it saw the resignation of Dr.
Kendall from the position of Dean, which he had held so long and
so honorably. Dr. Horace Jayne was elected to succeed him, and
I think I am reasonably safe in saying that there are few men in
the University to-day more respected or more popular than Doctor
The Junior Supper came off soon after the examinations. As
everybody had gotten through, there was much rejoicing and a
very full attendance. Neilson, as usual, held the position of toast-
master, upon which he has a permanent mortgage. " Cherubl'
Stevens' reply to the " Committee " consisted of four Words, which
were full of 'fpathos and sweet regretg " While as for Coulston's
reply to the "Ladies," volumes might be Written without justice
being done to it.i Close upon the heels of the supper came the
Junior Ballg and when all other things are forgotten, '9o's Junior
Ball will ever be remembered asia shining event in a long line of
brilliant social successes at the University. In one respect, our
Junior Ball was not quite as exciting as the one previous, as there
was enough for everyone to eat, and the "scrap" feature was
therefore wanting. V
It was about at this time that John Brinton Qto-day our honored
Presidentj began to distinguish himself. John makes a speciality
of four things-viz., playing baseball, shooting, putting beakers on
red-hot stoves and presiding at Class meetings. I should, perhaps,
have included a fifth-speech-making-but after the "few well-
chosen remarks " QI quote from the rninutesj which you have just
heard him deliver, it is unnecessary to further point him out to you
as the Chauncey M. Depevv of the Class. I-Ie is absolutely without
a rival as a baseball player, and as an experienced chemist he
stands without a peer. John's method in Class meetings has been
short but effective in its results, and his cheerful disregard of par-
liamentary procedure has caused Charlie Boyer no end of torture. '
Our Junior year came to an end with the first production of the
" Mask and Wig," in which '90 took a large and honorable part.
"Lurline 'I was presented before the largest and one of the most
fashionable audiences that ever witnessed an amateur performance
in this city, and its success was unqualified. It is a great pleasure
to be able to record in the history of the Class the birth and growth
of an organization at the University which bids fair to bring so
much fame and renown to the achievements of Old Penn. Doubt-
less, one reason for its success lay in the fact that it was not de-
pendent on the support of the students.
When we returned to college in September our brows wore that
unmistakable trace of deep learning which betokens age and long
experience. VVe were Seniors. Even " Kitten-face " Patterson
was a Senior. " Pat " left us for a time in Junior year to gather in
the broken threads of a misspent Sophomore year, but he came
back in due time, bringing with him his sheaves and his attendant
retinue of nicknames. " Pat " got a new name every term, and
to-day he is known not merely as 'f Pat," or even " Kitten-face: "
his full name is Grandma Kitten-face Knock-kneed Stub-toed
Heavy-eyebrowed Loquax Fabius Maximus Patterson! And yet
the Faculty has given him his degree!
Senior year saw the fall of Warren Hale's Poker Social. It
was organized as a religious organization at first, and always met
on Sunday evenings. For a long time matters prospered, and Hale
grew wealthy on the proceeds of the " kitty," but in an evil day
its members took to outside betting. Calves and Hale laid enor-
mous odds that "Lady Agnes " Gummey's beard would outstrip
" Stiffendus H Truitt's before the first of the year. Nelson Mayer,
Ford and the " Cherub " pooled their issues on ".Stiffy." Gummey,
who was in ignorance of this price set upon his head for rather his
chinj, appeared one morning-clean-shaved. The crash that fol-
lowed was so fearful in its effects that notices of a sherifrls sale
were posted, and the .Poker Social ceased to exist.
Lots of funny things happened in our first term. For instance,
Fred Neilson happened to play football. Now this was no trifling
thing. With Fred as full-back, and two other men as half-backs,
and several other men without any backs at all, we Won a game
from the Freshmen!-a fitting end to ,9O'S achievements on the
football field. But we are modest, and do not boast over it. You
notice, Neilson was full-back: he never does things by halves.
Fred was filled with an intense zeal, after this splendid victory, and
felt himself called upon to captain-yes, to captain-the Reserve
Team of the University of Pennsylvania-THE RESERVE FOOT-
BALL TEAM! The team played most of its games on the Athletic
Grounds, and gave much learned instruction to the regular eleven.
One bright day, THE RESERVES defeated the regular team. On
the next day, a still brighter one, " Otto " and "Pomp" were
seen repairing the eastern door, and when " Ott " was asked why
it had been taken off its hinges, he replied, "Neilson couldn't get
Neilson's habits in the Class were peculiar. He was not
always present. He even stayed away from Little Lord lVIcElroy's
elective hours in General Conversation. The Dean grew uneasy
about Fred's irregularity, and to help him out he instituted a
system of " excuse blanksj' and had several thousand printed.
This saved Fred a good deal of paper, and as all his spare time was
taken up in filling out the blanks and returning them, a " corner "
in " excuse blanks " was created, and the rest of the students had
to use ordinary note-paper.
The Fall Sports were' held to enable " Mitchie " to walk. Pat-
terson Qhe of the nicknamesj walked with him to " set the pace."
Naturally, the pace was a rapid one, but " Mitchie H was equal to
the occasion, and broke the tape first in great style. There was
only one other event Qexcepting Ashton Little's annual exhibition
of getting over hurdlesj, and that was the mile-walk, which was
won by Mitcheson.
In order that the impression may not be left that the Class has
been victorious 07261 in athletics, I wish to say a word about our
mental abilities. Take, for instance, Joe Penniman and the two
Burkies-Burke 2nd and our valiant little jersey man, Burk Ist.
This trio is known as the Band of Massives. The only purpose for
which they came to college was to cast cruel " snags " in the paths
of Lamberton and Fullerton, and whenever their hours became dull
Qwhich never happened with Lambertonj the rest would politely
but hrmly request the " Massives U to " sic them." To such good
purpose did they comply, that the hours would wind up in a mass
of entanglement, from which the " Massives " would usually
In " Philo " the Class has been ably represented by Penniman,
Burk, Kushida, Farr, Ogden and a host of others, all of whom
have freely contributed the products of their brains to bring
" Philo " up to a very high standard.
In "Scientif', the Class has been also well represented by
Mitcheson, Souder and Bullock, although during the meetings
" Mitchie " usually talked most of the time himself. Dick Hum-
phrey, who is very fond of " Mitchiej' say that joe joined " Scien-
tifl' with that end in view, but that is only idle slander. Bullock
never goes to the meetings because-well, because he's the Dean's
nephew, and it would be too undignified for him to go.
Some of you are, perhaps, wondering why 'go has had such an
eventful and successful. career, Know, then, that the Class con-
tains Heniy Leopold jefferys-and set all doubts at rest. He is a
brother of T T 1 i - jefferys, junior, of '89, but,
thank heaven, he has only three names, and he can be forgiven
everything else. It has become fashionable of late years for every
Class to have a jefferys, but future Classes Qwith the exception of
'ggj will " not be in it," as there is only one left to go round.
In Senior year, the proposition to establish co-education at the
'Varsity was exhumed by the Faculty from a very comfortable
grave and galvanized into a temporary existence. 'go took a hand
in the game at this point, and presented a petition against it to the
Trustees. The petition was signed by such men of infiuence as
" Lulu H Ogden, who lives at Ogontz, and who has had ample op-
portunity to study the peculiarities of the fair sex, and also by
"Jersey " Burk, who thinks he knows " a thing or two about girlsf,
as well. The result of all this was that they decided to establish
an annex for women, and thus put a quietus on co-education for
all time. All things being considered, it was ungallant in the
Class to protest against co-education, for have we not among our
members the Misses Field, Nicholson, Miller, Newlin, Ogden and
Gurnmey? In fact, the philosophical section is entirely composed
of the fair sex, in the persons of Fannie Nicholson and Maud
Miller, and to have protested against ilzem was anything but polite.
Under '9o's management Qand Freddie Neilson'sj the Glee Club
was reorganized in the fallgeand a very healthy specimen it was,
too. Several concerts were given, mostly in the suburbs and Dan-
ahville, and the club netted several millions. lfVith this surplus
Neilson subsidized the Red and Blue, which comes out at irregular
intervals, whenever its editors have something new to say about
the Mask and Wig as a dramatic organization 3 and as everyone
reads the Red and Blue, the advertising Fred got proved of great
"Fatty" Miller became President of the Orchestra in Senior
Year. 1' Fatty " was also a member of the Glee Club, and he tried
to arrange a " combine" between the two, but it wouldn't work.
To appease him, Fred said he would let him sing solos instead, on
the condition that he would leave the Orchestra at home. U Fat "
declined to agree to this, and war was imminent, until McMichael
C915 offered to sing duets with him. This straightened matters
out, and since then these duets have been a feature of every concert.
The Class meetings of Senior year are worthy of being men-
tioned. For three years Lew Audenried kept himself under con-
trol, but when he became a delegate to the I. C. A. A. he thought
he was pretty big. Lew would demand the floor at the beginning
of the meeting, and as he was a bigger man than the president he
would keep it till adjournment. He represented the Great YVharton
School. He would make a motion, Kushida would second it,
Frank Lee would report it for the Penmgflwzniazz, and then the rest
of the Class would vote it down. This process would go on indeli-
nitely, until Lew would get angry and leave the room. The idea
of having the Class merged into the Wharton School was a good
one, but not feasible.
In the Wharton School two prizes are offered: one for the head
place in the Class and one for the tail place. Audenried and Trot-
ter always go togetherg and as Rowe has a permanent hold on the
iirst prize, Lew and Buck have fought nobly for the consolation
prize. Buck begged Lew, with tears in his eyes. to take it, if only
for his sake, but Lew said he hated to deprive Buck of what he
was so anxious for. Neither could get the other to give in 5 so they
compromised and shared it with each other, and all is now at peace
Within the Wliartoii School. -
' I think I have mentioned the fact that Schelling is not very
fond of the Class. One day this year the Class had assembled in
his rooni before he arrived. The Professor came in a triide late, and
closed the door behind him. As a rule, this incident does not cause
comment, and, as a rule, there is nothing behind the door. On this
particular morning, however, a large sign was disclosed, bearing
upon it in gigantic letters the legend, " Wash your baby with Ivory
-Soap." Schelling requested " Colonel " Diggles to remove the
sign, and concluded his lecture in a tone in which a certain amount
of coolness mzlgkz' have been detected. He refused the subsequent
invitation of the Class to be present at its supper.
Thompson's lectures are always a feature of Senior year. Cer-
tain prominent clothing stores give away an encyclopaedia with
every purchase, but Thompson Qor, as he is more popularly known,
"Flannel Mouth Nj has improved on this plan, and gives one away
with every course of lectures. Unless a man carries away with
him, as a result of these lectures, a smattering of railroads, inter-
state lavvs, boards of charities, sewing machines, international
law, housekeeping, and a general knowledge of civil and religious
history from the time of the creation, his time has been utterly
Wasted. All this, too, is in addition to instruction in the art of cul-
tivating chin-beards and the richest Irish brogue, which is likewise
H given away with every purchase," and no one has ever com-
plained ongthis score. ,
To speak of the course in astronomy in Senior year is merely
to record two hours a week of the most intense pleasure. Students
are allowed to handle all the apparatus of the University's splendid
equipment in this branch, free of charge. The celestial globe is a
little worn from constant use, but the sextant is in very good con-
dition, and ought to last for another year. Vlfarrie Coulston paid
an enormous sum for the use of the corner-seat in Kendall's roomy
aslhe said : U It came high, but I had to have it.'f On the strength
of owning this seat and its attendant security, he seldom prepared
the recitation. One day Kendall "spotted H him, and called him
up. After that day, for various reasons, Coulston was always
There are one or two men in the Class who, I am sorry to say,
are on the downward path. Penniman and Gamon have developed
a tendency to frequent Gloucester. It is hard to say what the
attraction there is, but I am afraid that it will result in their start-
ing an "original package" store somewhere nearer within reach.
" Biela " Loyd is the Class Poet. I need say nothing more, except
that his is a sad case, as he is both young and full of promise.
Frank Lee is also a poet, he is likewise a native of Trenton. H13
case is absolutely hopeless. I
The Class Supper was held in February, and like all our for-
mer suppers it was an immense success-only more so. Stevens
and Lee both made good speeches. Lee had his speech printed
afterward in the form of Sunday-school leaiiets, and it is now being
used all over the country.
The two crowning events of our Senior year have been the Ivy
Ball and the second performance of the Mask and VVig in " Ben
Franklin, Jr." The Ivy Ball was, for the irst time, given in St.
George's Hall, and the brilliant success it achieved showed that 790
could play the host with satisfaction to all concerned.
And now, my friends, the curtain is about to fall upon the last
act in the four years' drama that ,QO has almost completed. It has
been the prerogative of every Class historian to claim that his
Class is then greatest of all, and I shall not depart from custom. The
Class of 'go has played her part well and faithfully. It is true that
'go has not attained a high place in athletics, but athletics form
a small part of the whole amount of work that a Class accomplishes
for " Alma Mater." There is no Class that has ever graduated from
the University whose career has been more honorable than that
of the Class that now stands awaiting its nnal dismissal from the
sheltering walls of Old Penn. In the Glee Club, the Mask and
Wig, in the College papers, the football teams and crews, as well
as in the class-room, the members of ,QO have taken places of
which they may well feel proud. Since 'go has been in college
the whole atmosphere of things has changed, and with this new
decade a new order of things has come about. The Class of 'go
is the last one of the "old" Classes to leave the University,
and, as such, she forms the connecting link between the past and
the present. The associations that we have formed as individ-
uals are among our most pleasant recollectionsp and in years to
come, though to-morrow the Class of 'go will sever its formal con-
nection With Good Old Penn, when the members of the Class are
scattered, the memories of our college course will serve as a com-
mon basis upon which all may meet again.

,H ,f been wont to draw largely upon the imaginations
"' of their readers. They generally transport you to
A I some distant part of the universe, give you a pano-
rama, a kaleidoscope, a spider-game-anything to
occupy your time-and then proceed to unfold to
you, descriptively, all that you ought to see in the

The second will, I fear, tax your imagination to the utmost.
Suppose me in Paradise. I sincerely apologize for giving you this
diiiiculty at the outset, but it will not occur again.
It may lighten the effort somewhat if I hasten to state that the
Paradise I refer to is the old mythological Paradise of the Greeks
We are all so familiar with through Anthon and Lempriere, and not
the one we all hope to become familiar with.
I was somewhat surprised to iind myself up there, I confess 5
but the signs were too obvious for me to mistake the place. It was
Mount Olympus to a certainty. There were jupiter and Mars, and
Juno and Venus Qwhose photographs, by the way, flatter her very
muchg she is not half so pretty as several of the young ladies of
my acquaintanceg but, then, she is probably getting oldj.
Apollo and Mercury were in close conversation when I en-
tered, and it may be of some interest to tell you that wide panta-
loons are by no means the style on Mount Olympus.
Immediately to the right of jupiter I perceived the Three Fates,
spinning busily. Now, if any classical dictionaries that you may
have read placed the Fates anywhere else but on jupiter's right,
you can be quite certain the dictionaries were wrong.
But there they were, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, all weav-

By the most extraordinary good fortune they were just weaving
the lives of the members of the Class of ,9O. They said they gen-
erally did these college classes in a lump, so as to get them off their
hands. So all I did was simply to sit down near Clotho-she was
the prettiest and youngest, only about 6ooo years or thereabouts-
and from her side I watched the whole proceeding. I took more
copious notes on this subject than I ever did, even in Schelling'S
lectures on Saintsburyg and an epitome of these notes I here pre-
sent to you.

Diggles will soon abandon the ministry and take to prize-iight
ing. In this his football experience will stand him in good stead.
The transition from hitting a man, when the umpire isn't looking,
to hitting him when the umpire is, is very slight. Stuiiing a man's
mouth with mud and sitting on his head are pleasing innovations
which Diggles will transplant from the football field to the prize-
Feustmann will travel on his shape. He will start out as an
artist's model, his chief poses being for the celebrated paintings of
" Easton at the Bathj' " McElroy sitting in silence " and " Mer-
rick repairing umbrellas. t'
These three gems of art will be the work of Charles Shimer
Boyer, who will soon grow tired of entering protests against Dr.
Leuf, and give up the idea of succeeding that gentleman as
Director of Physical Education, in hopes of having lots of time to
play ball ou the campus. Boyer will turn his chemical knowledge
to account in mixing colors, as the aforementioned pictures will show.
Some of his paintings will be used as scarecrows, others to repre-

line. About ten years hence the scientific world will be startled by

Hill Brinton, A.B., B.S., P.C. This will contain valuable statistics
as to how long a man can cut laboratory work and leave glass
beakers on stoves without injuring them. The article will be
favorably noticed in 7'LZgg6Z7'f,S Times and the Red ami Blzzeg and
Brinton, encouraged thereby, will start out to be a thorough

to tell the difference between arsenic and tin without being under

Borie, Develin ,and Kushida will obtain from Trotter positions
on the police force, and Lathbury and Latta will support him
among the "sporting fraternity." With all this backing Trotter
will become boss of the Fourth Ward and enter Councils.
Bob Bradbury is not at present doing himself justice socially.
He will shortly undergo a marvellous change g will enter society,
become a leader among Philadelphia's Four Hundred and be univer-
sally sought after. Notices like these will appear in the papers :
" At Mrs. Rittenhouse Squeer's ball last night Mr. Bradbury led the
german in a masterly manner." Marrying a prominent society
belle, Bradbury and his wife will devote themselves to entertaining,
giving Red and Blue teas and dramatic soirees.
At these latter, recitations will be given by Mr. Frederick
Brooke Neilson, the celebrated elocutionist and reader, ex-captain
of the University Reserves, ex-leader of the University Glee Club,
ex-comedian of the Mask and Wig, ex-toast-master at all Class
suppers, ex-Class presenter and ext ex-everything. You will
observe that all these X's are unknown quantities, and this is the
only instance in which the prophet has been unable to unravel
Freddy Neilson being so celebrated, I have obtained the most
minute particulars concerning him. He will write for the stage.
His iirst burlesque, entitled " George David Rose7zg'a1fz'm, fn," will
fail in that form and be remodelled and succeed as a tragedy. It
will be performed in 1897 at this theatre with tremendous success.
In 189 5 Freddy will marry a very attractive young lady-I extend
to her my profound sympathy. If she is reading the prophecy
she will get the "sympathy " directly, if not, her brother will
doubtless convey it to her.
I regret to say that a very respected member of the Class will
enter a career of crime. jim Irwin is to be a professional pick-
pocket. This may surprise many who know what an exceptionally
good fellow jim has been while in collegeg but his downward course
will commence from this moment. I advise the reader to be par-
ticularly cautious about keeping his hands on his pocket-book and
gold watch when he meets Jim at any future time. jim's best haul
will be Dr. Pepper, when the latter is returning home with the
fund for the Dormitory Building in his pocket. This will happen
twenty years from now. During many of the best years of his
life Iim's existence will be a rather coniining one. His liberty will
be seriously interfered with, and his daring and original methods of
escape from Twenty-first and Fairmount Avenue will reflect great
credit on the civil engineering course at the University.
Irwin's biography will be written by the celebrated biographer
and historian, George Rosengarten. George had a fine boom for
Class Historian, with the support of the entire chemical section and
a " co-ed." But he didn't get it. QI mean the historianship, not
the " co-ed."j His ability has been shown, however, in the pages
of that charming sheet, the Red and Blue, which, most unfortu-
nately, "has come to stay," so its editors tell usg and which, no
doubt, the reader has seen in waste-paper baskets, or ash-barrels,
or lining trunks. With all this experience, George will in future
devote himself exclusively to writing histories and biographies.
Speaking of historians naturally reminds me of the thread of
Hartley Merrick's life-not that he is going to be another his-
torian. Oh! nog he is destined for an architect. When last I
saw him in this capacity he was trying to draw a model of the foot
of the Medici Venus. He completed the sketch, I believe, after six
months of patient toil. QFoot was so big, you know, it took him a
long time to do it.j But this is nothing to what he will do. Pal-
aces, churches, cathedrals, pagodas, barns, beer-saloons, boat-
houses, dormitory buildings, alumni halls and schools for hy-
giene, all will spring from his fertile brain. Hartley's most
celebrated work will be an ornamental window for the Bijou
Theatre, showing a shattered umbrella in the centre, flanked by
two of Schermerhorn's designs for THE RECORD cover, together with
the seal of the family, a corncob pipe rampant on an azure field.
I must not forget to add that he will act as a trustee for the College
in coming years, and speedily be made chairman of all committees.
Meetings of these will be called at rare intervals, Hartley always
opening these meetings with the customary formula : " I have
called this meeting to tell the committee that I have decided to do
so and so q I have ordered this and that to be done, and I thought
perhaps you'd like to know it," etc., etc.
The iron business is quite poor at present. It will continue so
for some time-at least so one of the Fates told me. You will
observe that I have scattered gmfis through this prophecy a great
deal of valuable literary and commercial information, which I hope
you will make good use of. '
In view of the low state of iron, however, Warreii Hale will
shortly give up mechanical engineering and go into stock-broking.
He will be chiefly celebrated, though, by his reputation as an after-
dinner speaker. VVitty post-prandial remarks will fall from his
lips like sugar-plums from a cornucopia. But what is the use of
speaking of these, as his exquisitely humorous speeches at Class
suppers are remembered by everybody, except Hartley Merrick and
De Lancey Newlin P
Nelson Mayerwvill be picked up by a traveling show, Billy
Miller's Gwn and Only, combined with the University Orchestra of
Chemists and Freshmen and Freddy Neilson's aggregation of
nightingales. Mayer will perform as clown, and crack jokes with
Lady Agnes Gummey, the distinguished bareback equestrienne.
The deadly feud between Newlin and Professor Schelling has
not yet assumed the tremendous proportions which it will shortly
reach, In about a year's time the families of Newlin and the Pro-
fessor will find it necessary to hire small arsenals and move to
Pike County, Kentucky, which is the only place where little differ-
ences of this kind can be satisfactorily arbitrated. The Hatfield-
McCoy affair will be nothing to this one, which will exterminate
both families, even to sixth cousins. If the reader is a distant
relative of either Newlin or Schelling, I can assure him that he will
not live at most more than five years longer. Three Deputy
Sheriiics, Ed. Field, Hermann Fleck and Dick Stoyle, will be killed
in endeavoring to suppress these disorders.
But these are very melancholy things to contemplate 5 suppose
we turn to something brighter. You have probably observed that
a humorist who obtains celebrity never fails to turn lecturer. The
Class of ,QO will produce two of these. Walton and Ramsey are
not, it is true, distinguished for their wit just at present, but then
they have not seen '9I's mock programme. The observation and
study of this exquisite production will show them, by a simple proc-
ess of opposition and contradistinction, what true humor consists
in. By a thorough investigation of the depths of dulness they
will become able to 'see and appreciate the heights of true bril-
liancy, and the result will be quite striking. They will start as
end men in a minstrel troupe, following this up by writing funny
articles for the Sunday papers and dialect tales for the CE7Zl'ZL7j!
Jlfagzzzzbze, neither of Which anybody reads, beyond the title and
name ofthe author. But it will bring them great notoriety, and
the lecture field will be opened to them. Walton will furnish hu-
morous character sketches of recitations in Iackson's room, taken
from personalexperience, and Ramsey will contribute a few orig-
inal poems, Vers de Socifff and the like. Their works will be
collected in one volume, and Josiah H. Penniman, ex-editor-in-
chief of the Pevzngflwanian, will start out to canvass for it. Penni-
man's career as a book agent will be singularly successful. He
has that peculiar air about him that impresses one immediately

a fellow who is always in a rush, and always has his hands full of

will die of brain fever in middle life. Closely connected with Wal-

Do not suppose that in this progressive age, when Stanley
turns up or Emin Bey is lost about once every month, that the
Class of 'go will be without its explorers. Billy Griiiith, I have
learned, will, in 1910, fit out an expedition for the wilds of Africa,
in order to End out if some creek with an unpronouncable name
rises in a lake or a pond, or a spring, or ifit rises at all. In order to
obtain this valuable information, the expenses will be defrayed by
contributions from such wealthy and liberal men as Frank Ford, the
spice importer, john Rowland, the manufacturer of Rowland's
chewing tobaccog and Billy Goodwin, the gentleman of elegant
The following corps of assistants and attaches will accompany
the expedition: Fritz Hetzel and Harry Osbourn as engineers,
the Rev. Frank Stevens and Benjamin Walters, LL.D., as mission-
aries to convert the savages, Burk first and Stoddart as bait for
the cannibals in case they become too obstreperousg and Tom
Whitney and Lew Audenried as galley-slaves to row the expedi-
tion over to Africa.
Great success will attend this exploration. Beads will be
exchanged with the natives, and shots fired over their heads, as is
customary in all great expeditions of this class. Burk and Stod-
dart will be devoured by the inhabitants, while Osbourn and Wal-
ters will take unto themselves wives of the Hottentot denomination.
And here I must mention the melancholy accident that will happen
to the Rev. Mr. Stevens, who, while trying to see whether palm oil
tastes like ish-house punch, will fall from the tree and break his
The style of poetry that Billy Loyd has just given you a
sample of is good in its way, but nothing new. He will shortly
far excel it, and invent an entirely original plan of writing. In
1898 a volume of his will appear, entitled " Songs without Words."
The nrst stanza of the iirst poem will run as follows :
QYou will perceive it is written in blank verse.j
This blank-blanked style has, it is true, been popular since the
fall of Adam, but then it has never been known under the name of
poetry before, and the innovation will bring Loyd fame and fortune.
It resembles the style of James Whitcomb Riley in the fact
that one can read it without thinking of anything at all, and it has
the additional advantage of giving commentators lots of room to
dispute about the precise meanings of the language used. Billy
will die universally respected, at a very green old age.
Bert Gamon is to be an auctioneerg Mitcheson and Patterson
will become six-days'-go-as-you-please pedestrians g Nicholson will
start a college for granting bogus medical diplomas, after the man-
ner of Dr. Buchanan g Ogden and Rowe will be employed to write
theses by Colchester and Roberts g Schermerhorn and Peocock will
take to the barg while Little and Burke second will become re-
spected saloon-keepers in one of the up-town wards.
Gist and Babcock will die youngg Lorimer, Cressman, Capp
and the two Cullens will lead humble but righteous lives.
Three members of the Class will shine in a public sphere-
C. W. Miller, F. S. Nelson and Schramm.
Three will marry young, and so be dead to the world and its
hopes-Souder, McCauley and Morton Stevens. Two will marry
twice, and become " poor but honest" parents-Burger and jef-
ferys. One will become President of the United States. You will
iind his name a few pages in advance in small caps.
When I had taken all these notes, which you have just read,
I had finished my work. I embraced Clotho, took off my hat to
Lachesis and Atropos, and said U farewell " to the deities of
Olympus, as I now say " farewell H to you.

READ BY FRANCIS BAZLEY LEE,
Ivy Day, june 3d, 1890.
EARLESS the runner, sturdy, strong of limb,
Bending like cedar, 'fore the surging blast-
For on his lot the fateful die is cast.
Sweeps round the course. Pray ye, fair nymphs, for him :
And thou, oh Zeus! in Agora dim
With all the Gods, in glory nter surpassed,
Listen to our prayer. Mighty thy power and vast,
To fill our cup of j oy to teeming brim.
In Hellas there are those who dare compete
At this Olympic with Ionia's son,
Ye Gods !-oh runner, swifter speed thy way,
The Eleans are waiting in their robes of gray
To give the honor for thy conquering feet-
Crown thee with ivy, for thy race is won I
Long thro' the night the poet sings,
'Mid flowing Wine and perfumed Howers,
The yellow light harmonious swings,
For at this time a Caesar brings
His chariot, drawn by captive kings,
All Rome 's astir in length'ning hours. -
Now in the pageant some would gain
A coveted, tho' simple, prize:
The artist paints the golden grain,
The sculptor carves the massive faneg
The poet sings his sweet refrain,
'With a strange longing in his eyes,
Triumphant Caesar smiles with joy,
And views each task with critic's mind:
4' Art," thus he speaks, " is but a toy,
And sculpture is artts base alloy.
Not Death can Poetry's soul destroy,
Yon poet's brow with ivy bind ! "
'When Provence meads are sweet and green,
And Provence skies are soft and blue,
Goes Troubadour, with downcast niien,
His charming maid to Win and woo.
A falser man the world ne'er knew-
Men say so-they always tell
All that they know quite through and through
If 'tis the truth they're doing well I
The public conscience oft is lean-
Ah ! Troubadour, I know youlre true:
Such men as you, forsooth, I've seen-
You're honest from your cap to shoe.
But sometimes youare a bit askewg
For inch you take the frequent ell,
And pass such action in review,
Thinking exactness is a " sell."
Now, when you can each love sigh glean,
And once more worship, bill and coo,
Bending anew before thy queen,
Telling a story ever 11evv,
Vlear ivy on thy heart-not yew-
And praise her with a face serene,
Ah I ivy, wet with sparkling dew I
May spirits to thy peace commune !
Ivy is forever new,
Ivy is life, with death between,
Ivy brings naught butjoy to you,
Ivy is invisible, yet seen.
Out on the night, the Yule-tide bells are ringing,
Their brazen tongues are telling,
Their iron throats are swelling,
W'ith their noisy Christmas follies and their singing.
Sweet the music, falling, falling,
Soft the echoes, calling, calling.
There in the church the lights are brightly shining,
And the red-berried holly A
Drives all melancholy,
And the ivy on the tall towers is a-pining,
But each green leaf she lightly raises,
Singing the old-time Christmas praises.
Now swinging on the roof of wayside inn,
VVhere jolly Bacchus held his vinous court,
'Twas there onels life was lasting noise and din,
YVith gay companions of the careless sort-
There was the ivy bush. Men came to quaff
The landlord's best, with many a joke and laugh,
NVith rolling song and capons when they dine,
Floating about in monastery wine,
Aloft, the ivy. Soon they tore it down.
Suffice," said they. " This place is known in town,
For he who comes- here, does so on a push.
Down, ivy branch, 'good wine needs no bush! "
There by the lowly wall, where no one goes,
Mouldy as a grave-'tis grown with danksoine moss-
Violets bloom when the suns kiss the snows,
And smile at skies when the green branches toss-
Some one lies buried, but the passing years
Have 'prisoned memories, his hopes and love,
Stolen his anguish, all his pai-ns and fears,
Giving them to angels far above.
,Tis here an ivy grows. It teaches yet
XVhen man neglects, our God does not forget.
To-day, O Ivy, when thy trailing form,
Fastens to friendly wall of noble stone,
W'hat can we learn from thee and thee alone?
Here thy strong roots will pierce the fruitful glebe,
Drawing thy substance from the welcome sod,
So trustful must we be, like thee, in God.
Thy living branches reaching toward the skies,
They have a burden all too hard to bear,
So must we now sustain each load, each care.
Thy triune leaf has yet a meaning, too,
Entire : 'tis friendship, wondrous word, whose power
NVill lighten every dark, nnhappy hour.
Each thus implies a portion of the whole-
One, love for Him who doeth all things good,
A second for earth's mighty brotherhood.
And as for us, may we not have the rest?
One part for '90 may there ever be,
Broad at the base, the point, eternity!
May thus our ivy grow, forever more
To " Pennsylvania's H pride, the honor of each son,
May '90 wax in wisdom and in lore, .
Until her earthy race is past and won.
Then may ivy on her shining brow
Be symbol of her life commencing now.

O the Class of '90 belongs the honor of rescuing from oblivion
this ancient and time-honored custom of the University,
which came so near dying an ignoble death at the hands of
'89. VVhy '89 should have presumed to take upon herself
the authority to discontinue the Bowl-iight, no one knows, save,
perchance, that little band of chicken-hearted men that dictated this
misconceived policy to the Class. At all events our Freshman year
came and went without a Bowl-ight, and our lowest third-honor
man experienced the unusual sensation of hearing his name read
out in chapel to a disinterested set of Sophomores, while his own
heart was minus those nervous Hutterings that always accompany
this distinction. By the time our Sophomore year came, however,
all this was changed. The Sophomoric atmosphere had been purged
of '89, and 390 had the say. A Class meeting was held fone of the
largest, by the way, that has ever assembledj, the decision of the
lower court was reversed unanimously, and ,QD made up her mind
that what had been good enough for all her worthy predecessors was
good enough for herg and so the Bowl-ight lived and breathed once
more. Of course all this had to be kept sub rosa, as the Faculty Cbless
their hearts !j had been pleased with '89's action, and were, no doubt,
congratulating themselves that " that disgraceful annual riot " Qsicj
had been done away with forever. YVith this pleasing fallacy up-
permost in their respective noddles, the Faculty assembled-like
wise the students-on the morning of the 31st of January, 1888, to
watch the effect of the announcements made by the silver-tongued
Aristides upon the expectant multitude. The little ones on the
back seats knew that there was going to be a Bowl-hght, although
the Faculty did not, and there was much nervous hdgeting on those
same seats as the great orator of the Faculty neared the Fresh-
man list. He got there at last, and after he had finished speaking
it was discovered that little Master Tracy had also 'L gotten there "
with both feet, but little Master Tracy had exhibited a considerable
amount of discretion by staying away, and so the mantle of Tracy
fell upon Master Starr, who was pointed out to us as " that handsome
boy with the black hair." With a few remarks by the Sacred Fox
appropriate to the season Qand which occupied the better part of an
hour in deliveringj, chapel was dismissed, and Starr was hustled
downstairs with commendable promptitude. A little time was oc-
cupied in dressing for, more properly speaking, zmdressingj, and
then the ight began. It was to be a ight without limits, without a
referee, without interference of any sort fat least so we thoughtj
-a plain fight to the hnish. A group of 'go men, reinforced by
several Seniors, stood ready at the eastern door, with the Bowl in
their midst. A momentary suspense, and then the Freshmen, who
had been advancing, with the handsome Starr as a focus, started
the attack. The Bowl was gradually forced outside, and soon the
cool seductive slush Qwithout which no Bowl-ight would be com-
pletej began to flow in streams. By a flank movement the Fresh-
men succeeded in conveying their dirt-and-slush-bespattered Starr
to a place of comparative safety, and thus put an end to all at-
tempts to form that most difficult of connections-the H Bowl-
man " with the Bowl. There was then nothing to do but to watch
the Bowl, and prevent, its untimely dissipation by overzealous
Freshmen, and so that's what we all did. The fight worked its
way down, little by little, over the campus, through the lower gate,
and out into Thirty-fourth street, where the same ire-plug that has
so often played its part in Bowl-nghts still reared its inviting head,
and seemed to say, "Please smash me I" Here matters were en-
livened by a fusilade of snow-balls from a large contingent of the
West Philadelphia breed of "1uucker," which always turns out in
full force on such occasions and enjoys itself unstintedlyf Several
of McBridels "favorites " were on hand to see fair play, but none
interfered, and the sport went on without interruption. The Fresh-
men had now secured a supply of their second wind, and with the
assistance of a few Post-Seniors and some shame-faced " Eighty-
niners," who looked out of place, they got the Bowl on top of the
tire-plug, and commenced to do violence to the hard-hearted creature.
But Director Wagner's coat of arms was not smashing at that par-
ticular timeg and, as the Bowl was as sound as a rock, we sat down
and indulged in reiiections on the susceptibility of mankind, and
jeered the gentle Freshmen. Here the fight raged until Duncan
Spaeth, of '88,turned the iire-plug on full, and deluged the crowd with
an icy douche, which had the effect of cooling '91's ardor, and of
causing more than one Post-Senior to indulge freely in profanity.
By this time the crowd had swelled to huge proportions by the advent
of the "Meds H and "Dents,,' en massf, to the number of two or
three hundred, all of whom seemed to take an active interest in the
fight, regardless of the great destruction incident to "plug" hats
and " store " clothes. Nobody knows what started them 5 but some
one shouted, f' Let's rush the Bowl to Medical Hall ! " and this was
no sooner said than done. The Bowl at the time was guarded
closely by a struggling detachment of our men, but after our three
hours' tussle we were no match for the "Meds," For the time
being our "sectional jealousiesu were forgotten, and side by side
with the Freshmen we tried to prevent this gigantic theft of
" college" property, but it was of no use, and after an ineffectual
"scrap H on the steps leading to Medical Hall, during which we
had the satisfaction of smashing a score or more of stiff hats, the
" Meds " ran the Bowl by inain force through the " stiff-room " into
the building, and there was nothing for us to do but to withdraw.
The pill was a bitterone to swallow, but we had to do it 3 and con-
sidering it was administered by the " Meds," lim! was only natural.
However, after keeping the Bowl for some weeks, and indulging in
all sorts of terrifying threats as to its destruction and annihilation,
the "Meds " finally decided to return it intact. This was a very
sensible thing to do, as there is no knowing what might have hap-
pened at the Medical Cominencenient if it had not been returned,
etc., etc. At all events, the light was a good one, even if its conclu-
sion was a surprise, and not the least part of the sport was the
fact that the Faculty had been duped in their efforts to interfere
with an old custom. .
N. B.-No one was arrested or killed, and there were no bad eggs
thrown, or pistols fired, and the "Bowl-man" did not take refuge in

Our first supper Was held at Finelli's, and so far as Freshmen can
we enjoyed ourselves Qor thought we didj hugely. The speeches
were about on the average, With the single exception of that to the
" Faculty," Which, as delivered by Warrie Coulston, was a marvel
of literary GD excellence.
By the time Sophomore year had rolled around, Hartley Merrick
discovered that life Was not such a 716131 slovv thing after all, and
under his leadership our supper, held at the Colonnade, was a great
success. Hartley was ably seconded in his efforts to make things
lively by De Lancey Newlin, a present from '89, which we thor-
oughly appreciated. Aside from the " divertissements " offered by
" Del H and Hartley, the feature of the evening was joe Patterson's
burst of eloquence when called to respond to " Quondam Members."
joe was at his best that nightg and though his remarks were rudely
interrupted by his rapid descent beneath the festive board, his speech
will long be remembered for its wit, originality and brevity.
Our Junior Supper was also held at the Colonnade, and as U Del "
and Hartley had secured some recruits, success with a big S was
the order of the evening. The Faculty were out in full force, being
represented by Dean Jayne and ProfessorsALamberton, Smith and
All of our assemblages, however, pale into insigniicance when
compared with the Senior Supper, which was held at the Bullitt
Building on Thursday, February I3th. The Class turned out in
full flj forceg and of the Professors, McElroy, Koenig and Spangler
Every man felt that it was his duty to make our last Under-
graduate Supper a success. Hartley, as usual, outstripped all com-
petitors. He was the life of the assemblage. His mirth became
infectious, and even Minnie Stoddard so far forgot herself as to
smoke two cigarettes.
Ben Allen and Jay Gates represented the Quondams. We all
knew that Ben had a fine voice, but we never appreciated its power
until he gave us " Annie Laurie." This beautiful Scotch melody as
rendered by Ben is a thing to be imitated but never attained. The
toasts were unusually good, the one to " The Ladies," responded to
by Frank Lee, being particularly -.
All things must come to an end, however, and, after allowing
Hartley to sing "Annie Laurie" for the 416th time, we left the
classic halls of the Bullitt Building, much to the regret of everyone,
and of those in particular who had been enjoying quiet naps in the

and unbiased spectator it was probably the
A return was made to the older and simpler fonns of Cremation-a
return most agreeable and refreshing after the 'Spanish Inquisi-
tions,' etc., of previous years. The programme, too, deserves
special notice, the frontispiece being a particularly effective de-
sign, and redecting great credit upo11 the artistic taste and ability
of the Class. The head and tail-pieces, too, which adorned the in-
side pages were scarcely less effective, being, however, more of the
nature of sketches than the frontispiece.
"The Latin language was employed throughout the entire pro-
gramme in agreement with ancient usage at College Cremations. The
only exceptions to the use of Latin were the two ' Hymns ' on the
back page, a couple of excellent specimens of English and German
verse respectively. Promptly at the hour appointed, the solemn pro-
cession started from the basement of College Hall, an excellent band
leading the procession and playing the 'Dead March in Saulf
Immediately after the band camerthe Chief Devil, attired in a most
realistic red suit, and bearing aloft the significant pitchfork, closely
followed by eight tall, lithe devils bearing a black coffin on a bier,
containing the two books to be burnt, 'Lodge's Mechanics' and
'Cohn's Bacterienf Then followed the Leader of the Chorus, fol-
lowed by the Chorus itself, a small but well-chosen selection of
good voices, who sang most acceptably throughout the programme.
Then followed the remainder of the Class, marching four abreast in
solemn array, and carrying aloft torches, which cast a weird, un-
earthly light over the scene. A few childish Freshmen endeavored
to interfere with the progress of the procession, but were so sum-
marily dealt with by the rear guard that they immediately desisted
and gave no further trouble.
"The programme was most effectively carried through, and
nothing occurred to mar the success of the occasion. A few
drunken medicals tried to throw some rotten eggs at the Chief Devil,
but happily missed him, and were soon hustled off the grounds by
the stalwart blue-bottles, and given time to reflect in the neighbor-
ing police station. After the Hames from the pyre had spent them-
selves, and the last dying embers had expired, the Class re-formed
and marched back to the' College Hall, where it dismissed. The
grand stand was packed with the fair friends of more than one
Sophomore who participated 5 and although some of them shrieked
a little bit, and pretended to be shocked at the ghostly procession as
it wound its way up the long track, yet the only exclamations
heard as the crowd dispersed were 'Perfectly lovelyf 'Wasn't it
just fine? and the likef'

THE JUNIOR BALL.
' 2545 HE night of the first of February, 1889,
X ' will descend to posterity as the date
I ,hh ' of a famous event in the social annals
of Old Penn 5 for on that memor-
able night the Class of ,go played the
host for the first time, and gave, what time
Y Z has proved to have been, a model junior
Ball. And what a unique thing is a junior
Ball ! It is then that the 611156 junior dons
l"V his dress suit with the greatest care and wears
his most attractive air. How his bosom
swells with conscious pride as he treads the
unoffending " crash " beneath his feet, and
T H I promenades up and down the gayly decorated
,,+. --- chapel with his best girl on his arm I He
even feels a kind condescension toward the cynical Senior, who
views him with languid eye, and protests that he has come " merely
to pass away an evening." Then, too, there is the Sophomore who
is just beginning " to feel his oats," and who may be heard recount-
ing his deeds of athletic prowess to an admiring circle of females,
or boasting of the number of glasses of "real champagnen that
he has tossed oif at his Class Supper I And last, but by no means
least Qoh ! noi, there is the small but self-assertive Freshman,
who treads on his partner's toes or upsets a glass of punch over her
ball dress, through his uncontrollable nervousness, and beneath
whose dress suit Csent home fresh from the tailor's that same dayj
there maybe seen, peeping out at wrists and ankles, the unmistak-
able garb of the nursery. -V But this is more or less of a digression.
Everything seemed to conspire together on that particular night to
make the ball a success. The weather outdid itself, and from a cold
and frosty sky the moon and stars shone benignly down upon the
scene of the festivities. The committee, likewise, had conspired
together for some weeks previous, and late in the afternoon of the
day of the ball the majority of them perspired Qand very freely,
tooj in their endeavors to get a four-oared shell, which they had
carried all! the way over from the boat-house into the chapel, for the
purpose of decoration. Their efforts, unfortunately, fell through,
and the shell came very near following suit as it swung in mid-air
between the Hrst and second floors. Despite this single drawback,
the committee succeeded in transfonning the chapel and staircases
into a mass of flowers and decoration, and the faces of the stern
portraits relaxed as they gazed out on the scene before them. The
music, under Herzberg's skilled baton, was all that could have been
desired, and the supper, which was served on the third iioor, was
amply sufficient to supply all the demands that were made upon it.
This last feature was all the more noticeable, as it had become
customary with previous Classes to provide two hundred and fifty
suppers for three hundred guests, a proceeding that caused more
-or less discomfort and irritability, to say nothing of the wear and
tear on the china. At ,QOYS "Junior U the breakage of china was
very slight, but the zifbris of wrecked hearts was something fearful
in its irnmensityg and we know of more than one case Qno names
shall be mentionedj in which the damage was irreparable. Every
Class claims that its junior Ball was a success, and 'go is no
exception to the rule, though at the same time the feeling steals
over us that in no case has that claim been made with greater justi-
fication. Long may its memory wave I

THE "MASK AND WIGY'
ET the shrill clarions sound! Let
the trumpets blast forth their notes
A of triumph, and let all.th1ngs do
-' obeisance to the great king of Col-
':"' lege Dramatic Organizations-' ' The Mask
I Q4-qty. ,W and Wig!" The four years that have passed
y. Q 7 over the walls of Old Penn
have seen more than one re-
' vival within those hallowed
,El precincts. They have seen
12'-life if.- 4'-'Z- Q ' ' 11 Deans conle and go, they have
seen Glee Clubs fall 'and rise, they have seen Charles Peter Big
Chump Jefferys inatriculate and graduate, they have seen the Red
fm1iB!zze take its origin amid dEb1'z'5, and its consequent mad literary
career, they have even seen " Pomp " buy a new hat, but above all
these things, they have seen "The Mask and Wig" spring, Minerva-
like, from the fertile brains' of two sons of Old Penn, and carve for
itself a lasting fame. Ninety is proud of The Mask and Wig, and
she is proud of the share she has taken in making The Mask and
VVig what it is.
But how did it all come about? 'Whence came this sturdy his-
trionic exotic? -
Well, we'll have to go back a little--not very far, for this healthy
specimen is only two years old-so as to trace its birth. In the
fall of '88 Qnot the Class, but the yearj, a little cloud appeared on
the dramatic horizon, " no bigger than a man's hand." This little
cloud had " Mask and Wig " written on it in large letters, and
seemed to have a large assortment of silver lining. 4 At first it was
received with some suspicion. Those who had been familiar with
the ' Frazier-Ashhurst Dramatic Organization and Amram'-s
" Yorick " Club of former years could scarcely feel any other sen-
sation than that of suspicion at this new phenomenon. Field-
glasses were brought into requisition, and soon behind the little
cloud the iiowing mustache and spectacles of " Clayton Fotterall L.
McMichael," of '91, were detected, along with the blonde wig and
short legs of our own Freddie Neilson, and then the whole thing
came out, and the proposition was made to found a dramatic organi-
zation, under the title of "The Mask and Wig," to be conducted
entirely by the students of the University. A meeting was held,
articles of incorporation were drawn up, ofiicers were elected, and
The Mask and Wig stood ready for its work, The first thing to be
done, of course, was to map out a line of action, and it was decided
to make burlesque the field of work, as the most likely to be suc-
cessful. There were the usual obstacles to be overcome, the in-
variable opposition that is made at the " Uny " to anything that is
new, the signal failures that had attended all previous efforts Qwith
one exceptionj of a similar character, and, finally, the diiiiculties of
organization. But "The Mask and NVig" was not stopping for triflesg
it had been started with an object in view, and, without turning to
the left or the right, it went on until it culminated in its initial
production of "Lm'Zz'1ze."
The rehearsals for "L2L7'!Z'7ZE " began some time in December, 1888,
and were held regularly at the house of McMichael, 'QI, and at the
Penn Club, which had kindly volunteered the use of its rooms for
the purpose. This arrangement was kept up until a week before
the performance, when the rehearsals were held on the Chestnut
Street Opera House stage. Finally, on the night of the 4th of
June, 1389, " The Mask and W'i g " produced its first burlesque, and it
is safe to say that the success which attended "Lm'Zz'1ze" that
night was as complete as it was unexpected. The house was a
brilliant one, and the performance went off without a hitch of any
sort, and the show was all the mere creditable to " The Mask and
'Wig," inasmuch as, with the exception of the stage-manager and
the orchestra, the affair was managed wholly by the students them-
selves. Each class furnished its quota of men for the cast, and 'go
was ably represented among the rest. Freddie Neilson, gf course,
represented himself. We dontt know why it was that Fred didn't
take the leading role in "LzWlz'ne.', It must have -been that
" modesty forbade " him 5 although they do my that when one of
the newspaper accounts reported him as having " assumed one of
the minor roles with credit" Qwhen he really shared honors with
McMichaelj, Fred was very angry, and gave vent to expressions
that could not be taught to a Sunday-school class without moral
danger. Then there was Warrie Coulston, who couldn't advertise
himself suiiiciently as business-manager of the University, and so
he overcame his bashful nature, and strove after histrionic honors.
Vt7arrie had quite a handsome costume in "Lzz1f!z'ne," which he
thought was becoming to him, and he forthwith had several photos
taken of f'The Herald," in full costume, for distribution andthe
trade. Underneath each one he had printed neatly his famous line
-'fLadies! Ladies! Don't the Herald tease! " These met with a
ready sale, and Warrie was happy. " Buck " Trotter and Hartley
Merrick " illed minor roles admirably." They both took the parts
of " Slobs-in-Ordinary to Sir Rupert." and thought it would make
things realistic to drink a bottle of beer apiece during the opening
chorus, "Further On!" as Dr. Easton would say, they danced
"Razzle-Dazzle" with such keen appreciation and naturalness
that one fair damsel in the house, Who had observed the consump-
tion of the beer, was overheard to remark in an alarmed tone to
her chzzperofze, " Oh! are they really and truly intoxicated ?" As
for f'Buck," it Was all We could do to persuade him to allow
Anthony Boch to remove his mustache, so deeply enamored of it
had he becomeg it was only by holding out to him the alluring
prospect of having another one just like it in the next performance
that We could induce him to part With it.
THE RECORD predicts for " The Mask and Wig a brilliant future "
-a future full of honor to itself and of fame to Good Old Penn.
Even during the short period of its existence The Mask and Wig
has been the means orlbringing honor to the name of the Uni-
versityg and if every succeeding production of the Club achieves
as great a success as did its first, last and only production so far,
the limits of its renown will be unbounded. ' May its shadow con-
tinually grow greater, and never less!

X Q13 wonder then that 'go should have
given two such balls as her junior
and Ivy. Ninety wished the girls to enjoy themselves at least
once during each of the two years just passedg and the fair ones,
true to their sublime nature, refused to disappoint '9o, and did
enjoy themselves to a degree that struck joy to the cardiac cord of
That the Ivy Ball was a social and terpsichorean success is
undeniableg but it must be confessed that the committee felt-and
with great justice-unusual pride in the ball on the ground that,
although a subscription ball, it savored of the invitation in the out-
come to the committee to the sum and substance of 5-5 but what
man of the committee regrets it? Did we not know that we would run
behind, and instead of cutting down expenses we made a neat little
pile of valuables on the door of the Hall, and with appropriate ser-
vices dedicated them to your enjoyment, faire ladyes ? But we did not
have to call on the pile. The deliberations ofthe Ivy Ball Commit-
tee were never as thorough as the deliberations that characterized
the meetings ofthe other committees. We were supposed to meet
at 5 on Fridays at john Brinton's g john was the only man ever
there at 5. Our chairman is in love, and used to be half an hour
late every Friday-We could only guess why-and he invariably
adjourned the meeting at 6 because .he took his weekly bath before
dinner on Fridays. ' '
But those short meetings were long enough to allow arrange-
ments to be made for the best ball ever given by a college classy
the supper Cto begin with the distinctly mundanej was wfealbf excel-
lent, Well served, no crowding at the table and altogether thoroughly
well managed, the decorations were the best an Ivy ever saw, which
was due in some measure to the greater convenience of St. George's
Hall over the Leagueg the music was Qvve quotej "simply dreamy, "
the men handsome and gallant, the-far be it from me to attempt to
say just what were those delicate little butterflies that flitted hither
and thither through the halls, easily and gracefully gliding around
the dancin g-floor. Floor, did We say?-they did not need a iioorg their
feet never touched it 3 they just sort of sailed around as if they were
dancing on a creamy Way. Ah, those touching scenelets on the
stairvvays-touching was an apt word-ah! But far be it from us,
etc. We will quote from our fellows: A

smoothness of this affair can be compared with perfection to the
same quality in an egg-Hipf,
Audenried Qathletej.-" Any man who says that he has seen more
pretty girls in one place on any occasion will meet me at 2.30 on
" The girls are fine, as fine as silk,
So also the free lunch,
The dancing-floor is smooth as milkg
And, mamma! taste that punch! "

crowd without any other musical organization? The mere an-
nouncement that the Provost was to be seen-actually seen-within
the University's walls, created a premature panic, which was only
quelled by the counter-announcement that jackson would also be
present to deliver an address on the 4' Marking System." Lured on
by these gilded prospects, large crowds of people assembled in the
chapel to hear Cas per lZOZ'ZJ67'LiJ the Glee Club sing, the Orchestra and
Banjo Clubs play, Duane render a few GJ of the most stirring pas-
sages of W'ashington's " Farewell Address," and last, and chiefest of
all, to hear the annual free dispensation of taffy by Pepper.
This is what they all assembled to hear, but they didn't hear it.
The instant the orchestra struck up " God save the Queen," the
ubiquitous Penniman entered the door and swept maj estically across
the chapel in front of the stage, creating a cold draught through
the place, and making about as much noise as a ton of coal deposit-
ing itself in a cellar. Without noticing the Trustees, he proceeded
to dispose chairs in graceful and artistic positions on the right of
the audience with an air Qnot the same one as the Orchestra was
struggling with eitherj of great impressiveness. Everybody
thought this was part of the ceremony and burst into prolonged
plaudits, which drowned out the Orchestra just as it was finishing.
" Fat " Miller swore a fearful oath, but it was of no use, and only
served to increase joe's complacency with himself and things in
general. Then the Glee Club stepped forth and arranged itself
with a decided eye to affect, as Freddie Neilson 'waved his baton
and assumed that Well-known " the Glee Club desivnoi' H expression.
Again the audience Qon its partj assumed a hush of expectancy, as
Miller and 'f Clayt " McMichael began their " duo"-'K Friendship."
It was rudely interrupted, however, by a commotion at the door,
which was occasioned by Warren Hale, Frank Ford, and the
" Cherub" arriving late, each followed by a fair damsel. Before
they had quieted down, the Glee Club had finished " making night
hideous" with its weird noises, and the Banjo Club had begun.
The " twangers " met with slightly better success, although accom-
panied by continuous yells from a party of "Meds" on the rear
benches, and frequent salvos of " XVho was Georg-ie XVash-ing-ton,"
etcetera, from some overexuberant Freshmen. Theh came the
Provost's address, that splendid animal effort, which proved to be
the pine de 7'fSZ1S'fd7ZL'E of a truly Epicurean feast. How We all craned
our ears Qdo not stop to ind fault with our mixed metaphors, kind
reader, but let it passj to catch his candied words! Verily, the
chapel Was, for the nonce, turned into a miniature "Huylerls."
Taffy flowed in viscous streams. The Trustees bathed in it. The
Faculty Hlled themselves with it up to their very nozzles. The
students revelled in it, and even after all this " Pomp " and U Otto "
came in for their share. The Great-Kaiser's words were " sweeter
than honey in the honey-comb," and filled us all with joy at the
thought of the greatness of Pepper University falias University of
Pennsylvaniaj. The eventful celebration Wound up with the
" Farewell Address " Qour apologies are offered to " Fat U Miller and
the Orchestraj, and the crowd filed out, pondering as to which was
the greater man, Washiiigton or Pepper, and filled with sad reflec-
tions on the deceptions of advertising.

ROM the speeches of the old Philo-
matheans at the Seventy-Fifth An-
niversary one might naturally sup-
pose that the only students in the
University who had the slightest
chance of becoming famous were those
who had been moderators of Philo. Al-
though Ogden, Burk and Penniman have
as yet shown no abnormal development,
we think it necessary that they should be
clearly pointed out, in order that an inter-
ested public may watch the growth of
pure genius. Oggie was the first moder-
ator from 'go-Oggie famous for his
mighty preludes, suave apologies and pro-
found obeisances. Oggie has a. happy
faculty of winding himself around the heart-strings of judges 3 he
has one gesture with his right hand that is always, at crises of
perorations, producing magical results.. Oggie spent the greater
part of his term of office electioneering for Burk, and then did his
best to make the Hall a scene of anarchy. Burk, however, found
a way to stop the disorder. The little jerseyman, who can say less
in more words than any living creature, would step to the rostrum,
whereupon the worst members would fly to to the libraiy and the
rest promptly go to sleep, Penniman restored the reign of lawg
he was chosen solely for the purpose of sitting upon Dickson, which
he did with commendable promptness and ability. Otherwise he
was not very useful. He would come dashing up from the editorial
sanctum having forgotten all about Philo, hustle through the pro-
ceedings, choke off long-winded orators, adjourn the meeting, and
then hurry downstairs to spend the night in pumping state secrets
out of Plank. As the other 'go men have honestly paid their dues,
it is only fair to make mention of them as well, though we will not
include the two girls, Fannie Nicholson, who skipped when she
was declared insolvent, and Minnie Stoddard, who grew too fat to
climb the stairs. Kushida and Schermerhorn look after the lVhar-
ton School interests and see that all proposals from Farr and Lloyd
are promptly voted down, these supposed worshippers of pure style
they regard with a suspicion that neither Farr's perennial and
seductive smile nor Loyd's excessive willingness to perform can
allay. Two more must be mentioned, Philo's song birds, Gamon
and Truitt. The Freshmen treat Stiffendus with respect as the
author Qin einbryoj of an edition of Horace, they gather, too, about
Gamon's knees, listen to his tales of fraud and impeachment with
childish wonder, and promise to be good boys and not to juggle
with the ballot-balls. How the society without the vocal assistance
of the last-named members will ever be able to raise ai tune is a
problem yet to be solved. Perhaps Knowles is the coming night-

OME of us were talking over
matters the other day, and,
wondering why it was that
Q0 was so slimly represented
in our Society. Some one suggested
that, inasmuch as go devoted so
much attention to athletics, it could
among other things,
THE SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY.

hardly be expected that she should
show an equal amount of interest in science and literature. But
this isn't so, for it is unnatural to suppose that the Scientific So-
ciety should be overlooked by a Class which could furnish Philo
with such men as josh Penniman, the well-known journalist and
editor, and Lulu Ogden, the author of the popular series of chil-
dren's books in easy words of one syllableg not to mention Lloyd,
the poet, and Mr. Burk, the novelist, author of " A Young Lady of
Clarksborof' No, those who know the true inwardness of the
affair know that the biggest mistake the Scientiic Society ever
made was when it elected joe Mitcheson to membership.
Mitchie is a nice enough fellow in his way, but he likes to talk
too much. The trouble was that he Was almost the first '90 man
elected, and after that we couldnit get any more of them up, for
they all knew well enough what they would have to stand if he
was there. In fact, he hadn't been in the Society very long before
they altered the constitution fto make him eligiblej, and then
elected him President, to see if that wouldn't shut him up and make
him give some one else a chance.
But since '90 has had charge of the Scientific Society, even
though that control has been vested in Mitchie's form, the Society
has had three well-defined objects. The first object fas has prob-
ably been guessed alreadyj is to give Joe some place where he can
talk to his heart's content. The second object is to provide some
place within the college walls where scientifically-inclined men
may peruse "Scientif's" library, which consists of a few back
numbers of Puck, fudge and LW, together with the iirst volume of
fesieff Quncutj. The third and last object ofthe Sc., S. Qwe say Sr. S.
instead of S. S. for fear the latter might be mistaken for Sunday
Schoolj is to give Mitchie and Dick Humphrey a chance to be
together as much as possible. These are all worthy objects, and
they have brought a goodly dower of success upon the Society,

T has been stated more than once Within these pages that the
record of the Class in outdoor sports has been neither large
nor varied. No so, however, with indoor sports. lfVe defy
' any preceding Class to show a better assortment than it has
been our privilege to offer to all those whose duties, as Professors,
have called them into connection, active or otherwise, with the
Class. If there are any who care to dispute the point, we refer
them to our spirited, energetic and progressive Director of Physical
Neglect, Dr. A. H. P. Leuf. If his rneniory is as long as his legs, he
will recollect, without doubt, a certain morning in Sophomore year
when it was his pleasant task to deliver GQ his iirst lecture at the
University before the Class of '9o. The lecture was the first of a
course on "Hygiene" It is imperative upon us to chronicle this
fact, as the Do,ctor's course was attacked that same day with the pe-
culiar malady that befell " Grandfather's Clock," and had it not been
for the retentive minds of the Class this splendid beginning of
what would have been C judging from the first lecturej a brilliant
course would have sunk into oblivion.
Sadtler had just finished lecturing the hour before to the
juniors, and the room had been plunged into 'darkness to permit
the use of the stereopticon. Carelessly enough, the shades were
still tightly drawn when the Class entered, and as the "genial
doctor" had not made his appearance, the men proceeded to con-
duct themselves, as every well-regulated student always does when
he finds himself alone in a darkened room, with the Professor
absent. A violent scrap ensued for the possession of the back row
of seats. john Barker, joe Patterson, john Brinton, Trivy Dallas,
Frank Stevens, Hartley Merrick-in fact, all the best-behaved men
in the Class QN. B.-These men have since sadly fallen from grace,
and some few altogether out of the Classj-had secured seats on tl1e
coveted row, and after each had lighted a cigarette, and turned on
all the gas-burners within reach, organized themselves into a Glee
Club Cnot Freddie Neilson's later productj and a String Quartette,
which regaled the Class with selections from the best light opera
and the most profane College songs. They soon tired of this, how-
ever, and, amid shrieks and howls of wild enthusiasm, hurled
several of those lumbersome articles, called by courtesy " arm-
chairsf' into the middle of the room, and upset two rows of
benches, along with their occupants, headlong into the rlebffis. The
rest of the Class, far from being idle, amused themselves in giving
the Class and College yells with variations, a proceeding which
greatly enhanced the general tendency to disorder. While the
Olympic games were at their height, Leuf arrived at the door some-
what out of breath, and considerably "queered" by the scene
within. He was promptly greeted by a volley of chairs, aimed at
him with considerable skill by the welllbehaved men on the back
row. This unexpected greeting, together with loud cries of W' Go
to Z," "Put him out," "Rats I" acted as a stimulant on the
Doctor, and he rushed to the window and released the shade, nar-
rowly escaping a section of a bench which crashed into a glass-case
just back of his head. The flood of light disclosed to the Doctor's
eyes a mass of ruins in front of the lecture table, and a row of
well-behaved looking men in the back part of the room in an atti-
tude of prayer. This roused his suspicion Qwhich wouldn't have
been roused had he known the men personallyj, butlhe said nothing,
and proceeded to call the roll. The Doctor's exertions in this line
were earnest and well meant, but 1net with only partial success, as
several voices would answer to each name. This caused quite a
delay, as the Doctor found considerable difficulty in fitting the men
to the names he called, and particularly as his voice was incapable
of overcoming the ceaseless noise from the well-behaved men on
the back row. After tripping up on several names, and after suc-
cessfully weathering the storm of jeers which fell upon his head,
when he failed signally to pronounce Kushida's name, he reached
the " C's " in the Science. Calves is the hrst there, and Calves is
proud of his name, but when the Doctor pronounced it as one does
the plural of the humble offspring of the cow, at mighty shout of
laughter arose, and two more chairs found their way into small
pieces at Leuf's feet. This was too much for him, and taking his
hat and coat he left the room, after informing the Class that he
f'didn't like their behavior, and wouldn't lecture to them any
more." He kept his word, and '90 was deprived most unjustly of a
very entertaining and instructive course of lectures.

INETY makes no proud boasts of her prowess in baseball or
football, or even in rowing, but if there is one subject upon
which a '90 man feels perfectly satisiied and complacent, it
is the recollection ofthe days when we were callow Fresh-
men, and only less callow Sophomores. Those were good old
times when '89 used to regularly assemble at recess to have a severe
dose of corner lighting administered by ,QO. We always had a
happy faculty of either staying in the corner when we were there,
or of getting there when we had not been there. N0 matter who
had the corner iirst, '90 always had it last.
One day our friends the enemy, '89, thought they had at last
won a fight, and were correspondingly elated. It was not until the
debifis of human beings had been cleared away that, snugly and
cosily seated in the corner, our little "Deutscher " Schramrn was
seen. " Schrammie H had been there all the while without being
noticed. Great were the deeds of prowess of those days. john
Barker and joe Patterson and other quondam members were most
conspicuous in the fight, and Barker's skin-tight tlannel hghting-
trousers were the cause of much trepidation and apprehension on
the part of his friends. Even such staid and dignined creatures as
Hartley Merrick and Warrie Coulston used to so far forget their
dignity as to indulge in hand-to-hand iights at the recess time. It
is even supposed that occasionally 1'Napra" Walton was seen
tsripped to the Waist, battling bravely for '90 and the corner. We
cannot verify this rumor, and so give it for what it is worth.
Like most Freshman Classes, We vverersomevvhat careless about
keeping the law laid down by the Sophomores that " no Freshman
shall carry a cloth bag." Of course We carried them, and, of
course, there were several little unpleasantnesses as the result.
Rudy Klauder, formerly of '89, insistedon Wearing pieces of col-
ored flannel in his buttonhole. We insisted that he should not, the
result being that one morning, at the close of chapel exercises, the
aforesaid Rudy Klauder, formerly of '89, was surprised to find his
coat tails seized by two infuriated '90 men, Who immediately
started down the hall in opposite directions. I
We must not forget to mention the gallant conduct of Dewey,
'88, He was always in the thickest of the iight, bravely battling
for '9o. One particularly hotly contested bag-fight will remain
memorable to all who had the pleasure of seeing Dewey emerge
sums hat, sans coat, sans shirt, sans etc.g he came Wearing nothing but
a pleased expression and a pair of shoes. The days of our class-
fights are over, but the memory of them still lingers.

HE all-absorbing topic among ,QO H1611 during the fall of '86
was-football. There is nothing peculiar about this, as it
is a disease that attacks about every Freshman Class while
the great and glorious future lies before itg and, while it
fejoices in its callow wisdom, 'go followed this rule scrupu-
lously, and believed nrmly that its Class team was destined to
carry all before it, and to win the laurels of championship. It cer-
tainly was apparent that great talent existed in the Class, but just
how to bring it out was the question. Every method in vogue at
the time was employed with the greatest diligence, but F. CB. Neil-
son, Esq., had not yet published his book on the " Development of
Reserve Teams," and, as a result, our Freshmen team fell to the
ground with the dull, sickening thud so peculiar to the blasted
hopes of Freshmen. The work of our " end rushers," however-
Lady Agnes Gummey and Tommy Royal-created wild enthusiasm
among the fair sex. Tommy actually declares that his subsequent
success with his " transactions in hearts " has been due to the im-
pression he made as "end-rush " on the Freshman team. As for
Lady Agnes, the season proved too exciting, and she returned at
its close to the seclusion of Germantown, nor has she since played
on the team. In Sophomore year the team created an immense sen-
sation by defeating ,9I, in the closest and most exciting contest that
has been played on the University grounds, by the score of 6-o. We
don't care to make too much of this, as it merely serves to show that
the team was entirely capable of winning when it felt the inspira-
tion, besides, the fact that we never have made very much out of
any kind of victories over '91, it is not worth while. This triumph,
however, so paralyzed the men that it was considered useless to take
the championship, and so we allowed our other games to be dis-
tributed equally to the other Classes, one apiece all round.
Our next yearts team contained the names of Neilson, Auden-
ried and the " Colonel " Diggles, and seemed to have such good
prospects of carrying off the championship that " Cherub " Stevens
and Frank Ford got up a special pool, with money borrowed from
the members of the "Poker Social," to back the team's ventures.
As luck would have it, " fell disease " oveitook Captain Fred, and
laid him up in the middle ofthe Class games. This unlocked-for
event spoiled the plot, the team collapsed, and the Poker Social
became hopelessly involved in financial difficulties, which have
only lately been straightened out. The team distinguished itself
on the home-stretch by Winning two games--one from the Law
School, by defaultg the other from '93, owing to " Colonel" Dig-
gles, herculean efforts in stuffing mud in young Spaeth's mouth.
It is said that Spaeth did not appreciate the " Colonel's " effortsg
lout this report should be taken cum gvfmzo 521123-We might ,almost
say, czmz grano soli. ,
Let no one suppose that the game of football as played by the
Class has been unproductive of beneficial results. Fred Neilson
saw his opportunity, and by judicious manipulation of the ofhcial
Wires was elected Captain of the University Reserve team, a posi-
tion which he filled to everyone's satisfaction, and especially to his
own. Did not We all feel proud if, perchance, in answer to our
humble queries, THE CAPTAIN OF THE RESERVES deigned to pre-
dict what the score would be in the next championship game?
Yes, indeedg and, although Fred was not always right, he was
always willing to explain 20191 he was or was not right, after the
game had been played. After all, ,QO'S record on the football field
is an honorable one, although perhaps a trifle unfortunateg and the
fact that We did not win "early and often " may be attributed not
so much to our fault as to our misfortune. It was not for any lack

GLEE CLUB OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA.-Season 1889-1890
'89-'90 IN THE GLEE CLUB.
- HE year '89-'go will be a memorable one in the history of Uni-
versity musical organizations, as it was then that '90 became
the controlling element in the Glee Club.
Not until our Senior year did we let the world at large
know that we could sing, and never until then did we have any
representatives on the Glee Club Qalthough it is stated, as a
rumor, that Stiffy Truitt made at least four desperate attempts to
secure a position on the aforementioned clubj. This year, how-
ever, saw asad lack of something in the Glee Club, and '90 man-
fully stepped in, released all who were under contract to the old
club, and with an entirely new and choice selection of voices she
began to show the 'Varsity, as well as the world, what a Glee Club
" Fradah Nalla U Qthe same one who captained the RESERVESQ
made his debut as chorus leader, and under his skilful management
and training the new club, with a new ffeperfozwifrom which all songs
having a flavor of antiquity were rigorously excluded, entered
upon its career. Of course, the concerts given were tremendous
successes, financially as well as musically, an interesting circum-
stance to Warrie Coulston, who held the purse-strings of the club,
and to whom we refer all who wish to discover the best way to
make concerts pay. Ninety takes a special pride in famous tenor
Miller, surnamed the Rosycheeked, and renowned second bass Pen-
Strange to say, neither of these fine voices was ever heard in
solos, and for good and suilicient reasons. "Penny,' positively
declined to sing alone 5 and as for Miller, well-the club positively
declined to let him. Ninety has successfully demonstrated the fact
that, whatever else she cavziz' do, she can run a good Glee Club.

the team was not a good oneg not at

trifle over nine feet high, he Hlled the physical
' f requirements of his position finely. You couldn't
throw out of his reach Qwhich was fortunate

4 4 for third-baseman Fleckj, and no ground-hit ever
ff- got by himg but-and this is the point to notice
WvN1lN,x21?? -fy -he never stopped the grounders with his hands
or even his legs, as other good iniielders do, but invariably with his
head. Considering his Vast height and the diminutive size of his
head this was no ordinary feat. Mic put a man out once. His
hands were no particular use to him anyway, he didntt even use
them in batting. He would pose the bat somehow on his shoulder,
the pitcher would chuck the little sphere to him, and forthwith the
interested spectator would see Mids bat proceeding out to centre
held in great haste, mowing down pitcher and short-stop en mule.
' As it was with Mic, so it was with the other players: each was
unique. Pitcher Willianis had the exact twist of the lower limbs,
the proper curve of the upper lip and plenty of " devil " in his ex-
pression , but neither twist, curve nor devil ever left him to associate
with the ball. Maybe old Colonel Diggles could catch! Well, he
just could. He had, -however, the same dimculty in the use of his
hands that Mic had, but his ribs mzzld noi be broken. The Colonel
never had a passed ball except when the ball came too low for his
ribs 5 his legs are thin.
Trotter played short-stop one game, but after that he was re-
moved to the outfield, and wisely, for in that game he clearly
showed his predilection for the " jungle." Eight hits came Buck's
way, seven of these he magnanimously allowed to pass on their
journey unmolested, and as left-fielder Allen went out walking
with a girl after the first half of the second innings, Buck had to go
and give chase to the aforesaid hits himself. It got uoised abroad
that he let them go by him, as short-stop, so that he might show
his powers as outfielder, so Buck was told to stay out there. Cap-
tain Boyer never made a hit, but he always got to first base-having
been hit by a pitched ball. The opposing pitchers all complained
that they could not pitch a ball anywhere near the plate without
hitting Charlie's head. It swelled to huge proportions during a
game-and never shrank again. But Brinton-centre-fielder Brin-
ton! To watch john play baseball was a matter of education. A
long fly is hit, Brinton rushes toward second base as one with
intent to kill, lo, he stops ! he pauses! he gazes at the soaring
sphere. Right-Helder Trotter and left-fielder Penniinan rush to his
aid. Brinton now runs from second base as one who has thought
better of his bloody intentions, he turns, he runs backward! forward,
sideways, crooked, straight, slides, turns somersaults, and he, T rotQ
ter and Penniman all arrive at the end of the ball's journey, very
forcibly and at the same instant, first taking care, however, to
allow the ball free passage to the ground. The three outfielders
seat themselves demurely on the ground, while the rest of the team
go into a committee of the whole to find the ball. The latter when
found is handed to Captain Boyer, who makes a beautiful throw to
the home plate, and would undoubtedly nip the hitter of the fly
ere he completes his run but for two reasons: faj the absence of
catcher Diggles, who is in the outfield aiding and abetting the
hunt, and Qbj the absence of the aforesaid hitter of the fly Who,
having run around the bases two or three times, has dressed him-
self and gone home. The scorers now leave, having material
enough for several games, and Brinton's play is ended. Do not
surmise, ye fair ones who con these pages, that '9o's baseball
team was not a success. It Was. Why, some member of that team
once made a complete circuit of the bases Qon a base on balls and
three Wild pitchesj, but unfortunately, in the excitement consequent
to that event, it was forgotten to make note of who that hero Was,
so it is impossible to immortalize him here.

ON THE CREASE.
INETY'S attempts at " willow-wielding 'l and " sphere-trund-
ling" have been thoroughly in keeping with all her other
athletic achievements, both on land and water. The cricket
eleven has always disdained to subject itself to disagreeable
, criticism by winning matches or otherwise disturbing the
peace of the Class 3 and so after three ineffectual trials the eleven
disbanded, but not before it had decided to adopt the motto which
has always been a favorite one with the Class teams Qthe shooting
team alone exceptedj, wfzi, wkii, ZIZICHLS. When we were collecting
material for our Freshmen eleven the skies smiled pleasantly upon
us, and seemed to presage victory. But the skies didn't know us
then as they do now, or they never would have deceived themselves
in prophesying anything in the victory line. However, we were
sanguine QFreshmen always are, you knowj, and hoped to achieve
wonders with joe Patterson as our reliable captain. Besides Joe,
we rejoiced in the possession likewise of Goodwin, the turtle boy,
whose skill with the leather was far-famedq and also of Little
Willie Trotter Qwhose fame came to him afterwardj. One fine
autumn day Qwe always played our games in the fallj our eleven
sallied forth to cross bats with '88. The story is a very short one,
gentle reader, but full' of pathos and sweet regret. The team re-
turned home that same day, wagging their bats behind them, and
wearing a sadder but wiser mien. The band had finished that
difficult fugue movement in " Annie Laurie" that we all know so
well, while at the same time the score stood 129 to 5 5 ! And Little
Willie had been the team's " rnascottef' for did not the ubiquitous
newspaper reporter state the next day that " after Patterson was
retired the rest of the team quickly followed, with the exception of
Trotter, who put I3 together in good style ?,' And so it went on,
from Freshman to Sophomore year, and from Sophomore to junior,
with always the same result. But were the eleven discouraged?
Why, no-not a bit. They always looked forward to a possible
victory before every match, and when the match was overthey
always had the satisfaction of looking backward QN. B.-This is
not an advertisementj upon certain defeatg and then would come
the usual recriminations and explanations. Bennie Allen would
always complain that there were not enough girls present to admire
his shapely form, Charlie Boyer never couldunderstand why it
was that the first ball that was bowled to him always knocked out
his stumps, and the way Charlie kicked was something marvellous
to hearg and Freddie Neilson invariably got angry because his legs
were so short he coulcln't run fast, and of course the captain swore
at ,him when he failed to connect with the ball and had to chase it.
The rest of the team all had their individual grievances, but Joe
would 'always calm them by saying, " Fellows, we played in pretty
hard luck to-day. We'll get along better next time? That " next
time" of joe's, however, kept getting further and further off and
when we consigned our stumps and bats to a peaceful repose at the
end of Junior year j'oe's predictions still remained unfulfilled.

ez y sparkling than before our entrance into the courts

, District Police Station Cherub Stevens and

9 0 have been so? Well, simply because our teams
have always been so handsome, What Class
can show such a collection of broken hearts among the fair sex
as a result of their games? It was most certainly Worth the
price of admission to our Freshmen tournament to see some
sweet-faced damsel follow with sparkling 'eyes one of joe Patter-
son's wicked "twists," or to hear her declare that Ben Allen's
poses "were just too fascinating for anything." And then, too,
in Sophomore year, the story was the same. It was a notice-
able fact that Bennie Allen and Hartley Merrick wore looks
of satisfaction the morning after the tournament that seemed to
indicate to the observant eye that, although they had suffered un-
deserved defeat at '89's hands, the score of the evening must have
been a "love-set." Seriously speaking, however, it was only by
the very hardest kind of playing that '89 won the Cup from us that
year. Our pair worked like Trojans to get it, and if work alone
had counted for anything the Cup would have been '9o's. In
junior year Trotter and Merrick championed the cause of the Class,
but " Buck " had just gone into the Wharton School, and was too
busy working to get down to the tail of the Class to pay any atten-
tion to his tennis practice, while Hartley's head was occupied with
plans for capturing the chairmanship of all Class committees for
the rest of college. The consequence was that 'go again " knuckled
under," and came away from the iight with racquets badly
smashed. As the interclass tournaments have always been played
about a year ahead of time ffor some occult reasonj, our contest for
Senior year came off in the spring of '89. Merrick's tennis star
had disappeared below the horizon, but " Buck " Trotter's was still
shining-alone. We had almost given up the hope of being able
to send out our fourth team to be defeated, when Jeffereys fit is
really spelled Hjeiferys " without the middle " e," but he likes to
have it misspelledj came to the fore, and consented to allow himself
to play with Trotter. A large crowd of us went to see "Iaffra"
play, and loud and long were the cheers that rent the air as his
sylph-like form fit is a good deal like C. P. B. I'sj disported itself
upon the turf. The tournament turned out in the regulation way
Qfor 'gojg and, after it was all over, "Ja1Tra" was heard to assure
"Buck', that if he had been allowed to play single-handed he
thought the Cup might have been won for ,QO. As we are writing
this, it is still undecided whether ,QO will enter a pair in the spring
tournament or notg if she does, then "-Iaffran will have to coax
" Napra " VValton to play with him. In such an event we hazard
the prediction that they will Win, hands down, as Walton has
acquired great dexterity with the racquet as a result of his frequent
practice with young Mrs. Walton Qnee C. N. B. Carnac, '92j. So,
after all, the Cup may still be ours-that is, provided Walton does
not refuse to play. It is quite ceitain that "IaH'ra " will play if he
gets the chance.

ON THE VVATER,
6 6 T is expected that the Class of '90 will have an unusually
good crew. Every man in the Class has a line shape and
the making of a Hercules if he will only do his duty and
' train." By such blandishments and caj oleries the sporting
editors succeeded in coaxing a patriotic band, under the leadership
of Syph and Colonel Diggles, to try the machines, and all through
the winter they slid monotonously forward and backward, gazing
anxiously, and soon after proudly, upon their swelling muscles,
amusing themselves from time to time by electing a new captain.
Our Freshman crew did not enter the Class races, but with a judi-
cious sprinkling of Erst year 'A Meds " raced the Freshman crew of
Yale, and was beaten after a very plucky struggle. In Sophomore
year we hoped for a better record, and in the early spring the patriots
could be seen on the river, through the blinding snow-storms,
breaking their way through the ice. As the race day approached
we could claim for our men that even if they were not the strongest,
they presented a better appearance and rowed a cleaner stroke than
any other crew.
We refer to '88's RECORD for a true account of this travesty of a
race. When '89 had received her customary start, ouri crew rowed
down with the others, and took a very good place at the finish.
All, however, will acknowledge that the most conspicuous 'object
upon the river that afternoon was 'gots tug, and, excepting the mem-
bers of that Class only, the most interesting and picturesque igure
upon the deck of that gallant craft was the capacious keg of Lager.
W'e tarried so long at the wharf before starting that the spectators
in the pavilion supposed. we were waiting for one of our dear in-
structors. Their doubts were soon set at rest by the appearance of
a huge wheelbarrow, propelled by a small Irishman, red-faced and
panting, and solemnly escorted by Hartley Merrick, " Cherub "
Stevens, " Kitten " Patterson, and others who begged to have their
names suppressed. Although defeated, the Class had a most happy
afternoon, yelled itself hoarse on the river, and on shore joined
cheerfully in the pandemonium at the boat-house, with loudly ex-
pressed sympathy for '88 and the other handicapped crews.
In Junior year we were very hopeful. Whitney had been dis-
covered, and we had inherited Straderg but once more four hopes
were dashed to the ground. just before the races these two were
injured, and as their places could not both be hlled Qwe had only
one curly giant in reserve, McGeorgej our crew rowed with but six in
the boat. Our sextette of heroes was determined not to be last, and
the contest to avoid this place was extremely interesting. To show
that there was no ill-feeling, a Freshman dived overboard, and this,
together with a few fouls, brought us out-not last.
The Class, as usual, viewed their watery tragedy from the upper
deck of a tug. The Committee has never told us how it obtained
the venerable ark, whose appearance upon the blue waters was the
signal for a storm of merry jibes and sly insinuations. Contrary
to the expectation of the public, the ancient tub held together, al-
though it developed a curious disposition to iioat sideways, and to
bury its prow in the cool mud. Few of us will forget that exciting
afternoon. The Committee QB-rinton and Coulstonj had put all
their money on 790, and were determined to run down the other
crews, but their deadly purpose was frustrated by the mutiny of the
horror-stricken captain, and the positive refusal of the ark to obey
its helm. After rolling and drifting about for some time, we iinally
reached shore, and while the men were absent temporarily Qhaving
hurried to the boat-house to support the creW's protestj, one Hen-
derson, of the Class of '89, took the opportunity to steal the Class
Ensign, which was waving proudly from the mast-head of the afore-
mentioned ark, and brought upon himself a visit from a delegation
of our ighting men, who quickly made him disgorge. Henderson
did not appropriate the Hag more than once.
In Senior year we did not enter a crew. Sypher had left us,
and all " Fanny's " time was needed for slicing cats, while Gamon
and the Colonel were busily employed in laying siege to Lamberton's
heart. Our marine drama ended, therefore, with the third act, our
Class believing that Water was not its element, or, if used, then
only when boiling and mixed with a " dhrop of the craythurn in
fmzk form. Ramsey alone is excepted, as he still persists in his

INETY always Was and always will be a unique Class.
Everything that she has done bears the stamp of originality,
and she distinctly deserves to have her various achievements
copyrighted, not that anyone else could copy them, but
merely to deter people from attempting the impossible.
We had reached junior year, and from the first day of the first

one unforeseen circumstance. This was the fact that he was not
alone in his aspirations for glory. Had he not such puny opponents
as Schermerhorn, the prize poser and eyebrow manifmulator of the
Wharton School, and Ogden, whom we regard as almost on the verge
of destruction owing to his well-known but saddening love of the
seductive P-I-E? These two individuals were not all, however,
who were burning with an irrepressible desire to achieve greatness
in the field of oratory. Farr and Little Kushie and also Rowe, who
in general oiiiciates as " the Wharton School," had also entered the
list. The battle was terriic. Ogden's oily tongue worked as if
it were on hinges, and the way in which he served up "john

ance orators. QHughie, by the way, comes from Mainej Schermie

THE EDITOR OVERXVHELBIED BY SUBSCRIPTIONS
THE "RED AND BLUE."
O '89 in- general, and to George Henderson in particular, We
are indebted for the Red and Blue. George had long been
impressed with the idea that the University needed a literary
paper. After making a few choice selections from his own
class, Henderson turned his attention to '9o. He Hrst approached
U N apra" Walton, Who, after. due consultation iwith Carnac, inally
consented to become an editor, with the distinct understanding, how-
ever, that he should be allowed to write something for each issue.
George Rosengarten, Whose literary ability is well known, was the
next, and last, but not least, was Warrie Coulston Qthe brightest
man in the Artsj, who, after repeatedly refusing a place on the
editorial staff of the Penngflwzniaft, decided to take a position on
the Red and Blue in order to give the paper the proper degree of
style. Warrie was elected business-manager at once, and from all
accounts he managed the funds Qwhen there were anyj with rare
skill. " Nappa's " desire to write something for every number was
gratified by placing the "wrappers " in his charge, and We feel
justined in saying that never before in the history of college
journalism have such wonderful results been accomplished. Now
and then George Rosengarten would make an appeal to be allowed
to Write the " exchange H wrappers, but " Nappa " guarded all with
jealous care. Although George deserves some praise for his work
in " dunning " men for subscriptions, and Warrie for his manage-
ment ofthe cash, the great success of the paper has been due to the
splendid work of Walton. It is with great regret that we announce
that there are only a few of them left.
Toward the first of last March it was noticed that Warrie had
a sad, sad look on his usually beaming countenance.
A rumor soon began to spread to the effect that the Red
and Blue was in financial difficulties. Many a one wandering near
the sanctum about this time might have heard strange mutterings,
and now and then such exclamations as " I don't care if the paper
does go up," and " Well, this is the last 55 I am going to put in the
thing." We understand, however, that the embarrassment was
only of a temporary nature and that the paper is now on the high
road to success.
Warrie, although no longer one of the editors, still wears that
same Weary look when anyone speaks of the Red and Blue, and by
Way of explanation of this look rumor hath it that Warrie paid dearly
for his experience. Ninety feels proud of her share in bringing the
Red and Blue into the front rank among college papers, not so
much because it has brought her favorite son, " Nappa" Walton,
into public view, but because she has helped to add to the fair fame
of her "Alma Mater."

6 6 ERDITION catch my soul," observed Josiah H. Penni-
man, Editor-in-chief of The Pc'?7Z7Z.SjlZ'.7!LZ7ZZ'lZ7Z, While seated
in the sanctum. The causes for this exclamation were
obvious. ' It was Wednesday, March Izth, 1890. The
Pefzngflvafziafzj was due' that day, but unfortunately lacked seven
pages of matter forla full issue. 'JV e deem it necessary to state that
The Pe7m.91!zhz1zz'mz appears on the Wednesday of each Week, be-

misunderstanding on this point among the subscribers.
just at the moment when I. H. P. was trying to furrow his
brow with care, a terrihc cyclone blew the door open and the edi-
torial on "Smoking in the College Building" off the table, and
Lee, with his storm-coat flying, swept in. He was closely followed
by Hartley Merrick, "of Manayunk, Class '3o," smoking a corn-
cob pipe, turned upside down. The Chief smiled hopefully as he
looked upon these two sons of the quill.
" What have you got for me ? " he asked, confidently.
" Nothing," replied Lee.
f' A lecture that was given two weeks ago," said Merrick.
H Two weeks ago ! " cried the Chief, in a transport of delight,
" how magnificent! Now, indeed, the 'P67Z7Z.Sjl, is keeping pace
with the journalism of the age," and he waved the inkstand around
his head, throwing its contents over the expressive countenance of
Ogden, the business-manager, who came in at that moment.
"Hughie," cried Josiah, casting his arms around the B. M.'s
neck, and kissing the ink stains from his face, " where is that
review of Fullerton's latest work, Ag1z0sz'z'cz'sm ws. mf7Z0fZ'S77Z, that
I told you to write ? " A ,
" Alas ! " returned Oggie, " I forgot it,"
At this statement the Chief 's face turned as white as Easton's
cuffs, and, before it could assume the customary green tinge of
despair, Billy Lloyd stood shyly before him.
'f And you," cried Josiah-" what have you ?l' ,
" The calendarft replied Billy.
The Chief exclaimed, " E! lu Z-?1'u!.f:," and fell writhing on the
" To think of it," he moaned, " after publishing all your poems
in the paper, and rejecting all others except Schelling's I-this is
the return you make I Oh ! why did Iii' ,
He got no further, for a loud flourish of trumpets was heard
outside, and C. N. Farr, Ir., entered. Surprise and amazement were
seen on all sides, for Chester had not been inside the sanctum,
except to steal paper, for the last four months. The surprise turned
into helpless and petrined astonishment when he drew from his
pocket a sheet of manuscript.
"Have I got 'em again?" exclaimed Hartley, dropping his
pipe involuntarily on the iioor.
" YVhat is it ? " inquired Josiah, clutching at the paper.
H A college notef' said Farr, and he read it out : " 'The board-
walk opposite the Library Building is badly in need of repairs! "
The Chief started to utter a malediction, but stopped as Frank
Lee, after rummaging in his pockets, stepped forward and handed
him a contribution which an outsider had sent in. Josiah read itg
his face became like that of a corpseg his limbs relaxed.
" Fellows," he stammered feebly, " it's a joke ! "
At this horrible announcement consternation was depicted on
every countenance. Never since '90 had had the paper had an
original joke appeared in its columns. The P67Z7Z.SVZ2'JLZ7ZZ.lZ7Z had
never stooped so low. It had, it is true, yielding to the perverted
taste of Merrick, siolen jokes from other papers, but publish one of
its own-bah! never! I The jest was burnt to ashes, cast to the
winds, the room was fumigated to remove the obnoxious vapors,
the editors resumed their tranquillity, and Penniman and Lee sat
down and wrote seven pages in seven minutes, and hlled the issue
with news, none of which was less than two or more than four
weeks old. C
It might be inferred from this account that TlzeAPemz.g1Z1Jzz1zz'a7z
Board of 'go did no work. This, however, would be a gross error.
Frank Lee generally wrote half a dozen " topics " and a stray poem
or twog Hartley Merrick always contributed two weekly editorials,
giving the Faculty pointers on how to run the College. He like-
wise compiled the " Pennsyve Clippingsj: containing jokes appre-
ciated by the select few. Hughie Ogden constantly produced
reviews of books, of which he read the title page, and then averaged
the rest, Billy Lloyd invariably furnished the calendar, which con-
sisted ofthe same things each week, with the dates slightly chan gedg
while Chester Farr as invariably furnished nothing at all. Every-
thing in the paper not included in the above list Joe Penniman
usually handed in. We must not forget to mention among slight
incidentals such things as the poems of Billy Lloyd, or the college
notes Ccommonly evolved from his inner consciousnessj of Hartley
The aforenlentioned equable division of labor continued in force
until the close of '9o's control, and for examples of the excellent
results attained under it we refer the reader to the issues of The
Pe7zn.91ZzJmzz'czn from April, 1889, to April, 1890, complete sets of

THE CAMERA CLUB.
HEN George Rosengarten heard that he had been elected
President of the Camera Club he fainted in the arms of
Mitchie, who had broken the news to him. YVhile recov-
ering, he was heard to ask feebly, 'L EVhat will I do with
it? " " Never mind, George," said Mitchie, 'L We'll HX fha! all
right. You can quietly stay President, and I'll run the Clubfl and
Mitchie hasfkept his Word. The Camera Club is an institution that
was willed to us by '89. Several members of that curious Class,
fearing that their names in THE RECORD would not be adorned by a
sufficient number of titles, organized the Club, elected themselves
officers, and then proceeded to run in all the Faculty as honorary,
and some of the students as insignificant, members. Some of the
men, however, were really in earnest, and were determined that it
should not degenerate into a " fake, " and every other Week they
listened to papers, or compared negatives in the Scientific Societyls
Museum. In the spring the elections were held. " Rosie" was
elected President in order to compel him to attend the meetingsg
Phil Howard, lst Vice-President, for nearly the same reason, and
Lloyd, 2d Vice-President, because he thought he knew a dry-plate
from a window-pane. Delaplaine was made Secretary because
Mitchie loved him., and when nominations for Treasurer were in
order, Mitchie said in his settling way, " I'll take that." This year
we have not done as much as we should have done, as it was utterly
impossible to fix an hour for meeting that suited any two men.
Through H Charlie " Haupt's kindness we were allowed to use his
dark-room, which gave us an opportunity to spend part of our sur-
plus cash on chemicals. We were always planning expeditions
into the wilderness, but Jimmy Irwin insisted on going to Camden,
at which the others kicked. Our artistic triumphs were many, but
none equalled Mitchie's daring feat of photographing Capricornus
in his stable. It is believed that after the repose of this year the
club will wake into a more exciting existence, " develop, tone, fix "
Philadelphia village, and get into the newspapers. '

answer, " 'Cause," which has had the invari-
able effect of clinching the argument and of preventing further
conversation on the subject. Still, although " '9o',s Racketw has
never had a material existence, it has at least lived an uproariously
healthy life-on paper. About the beginning of Sophomore year
De Lancey Newlin and Hartley Merrick Were frequently seen with
their heads together in earnest conversation anent a mysterious
something. Many shook their heads at this portentous sign, and
exclaimed, "There is something Wicked brewing! " but it finally
leaked out that it Was nothing more or less than a project to start a
Racket Club. Others were taken into their confidence, and soon a
document was drawn up containing the names of iifteen of the
fastest men in the Class, including Gummey Qvvho at the time was
a slave to viceg since then., We rejoice to say, he has reformedj. Of
course, the effect of Gummey's name among the list of members
proved a stumbling-block to some of the men with quieter tastes,
who were in ignorance of " Gum's 'l membership till they saw his
name on the listg and so, one by one, they began to back out.
WVarrie Coulston said his house wasn't big enough to entertain the
Club when his turn came, and so he thought he'd better resign.
Lew Audenried excused himself on the ground that his brothers
didn't like to have liquor in the house, and he didn't know Whether
he'd better j oin, because he knew that most of the men drank lem-
onade a good deal, and he thought they might expect it when they
came to his "Racket.,' "Buck" Trotter said he never played
cards himself, and that the family wouldn't care to have cards
played in the house anyhow, so that settled him. In this way,
like the animals and birds in " Alice in Wo11derland," when men-
tion is made of the cat, they all moved off, under one pretext or
another, and De Lancey and Hartley were left alone in their glory,
with nothing but a list of names. U Del," however, was still hope-
ful, and every now and then he would say, "I say, fellows, I
think it's a shame we can't have a racket! " to which a chorus of
enthusiasts would reply, " So do I," and then another futile eifort
would be made to make the club something more than a vain
mockery. The club would noi "racket," however, and so we
chronicle its peculiar existence here simply on the Zzmzs zz 7Z07Z
Do not, gentle reader, judge rashly from what we have said
that the spark of conviviality has been lacking in our breasts. On
the contrary, despite the fact that the Racket Club's existence has
been conined to " substratum " Cfor the dennition of which expres-
sion consult Ogden's "Elements of Substratic Philosophy," pp.
2361-4j, the tutelary deities of f'Brinton's Dive" have smiled
more than once upon the gay and gleesome countenances of '9o's
roisterers. Within that hallowed Qlj precinct Audenried, Trotter
and Newlin have learned how to square the " circle H-a most pront-
able employment for all those who are anxious to square themselves
-while others of us have learned how to smoke and-you ihougkt
we were going to say dljink, didn't you?-have a good time generally.
Perhaps, after all, it is just as well we did no! have regularly
organized " Rackets " Csour grapes ?-well, possiblyj, as they might
have detracted from the enjoyability of our suppers, and have been
the means of leading " Cherub H Stevens and De Lancey Newlin
away from the virtuous promptings of their respective consciences
into the gloomy paths of vice. Such, fortunately, has not been the
case, and they are still uncorrupted. Kind reader, if in the dim
future you hear a gentle voice whispering in your ear the sad
refrain, "I say, fellows, I -think it's a shame We can't get up a
Racket Club!" be not alarmed, but recognize in it the eternal
lament of De Lancey over the fallen fortunes of '9o's might-have
beenscelebrated Racket Club.-Requzksrat in pace.

A HOUGH the majority of the members of the Class of '90, it
must be confessed, turn rather to the sensuous than to the
intellectual side of music, and though Merrick, our great
authority on such matters, declares that he would rather
hear the band play "Annie Laurie " than listen to a sym-
phony in Z flat, We have not failed to appreciate, and even at times
Cwhen safe from an encorej to applaud the triumphs of our Univer-
sitygmusicians over harmony and melody. As Miller is preparing
a monograph for the University Press upon the evolution of the
trombone, the same to include a history of the Orchestra concerts
and the subsequent pawning of the instruments, it is not necessary
for us to dwell at length on these crises in College history. From
the back benches of the chapel, as Freshmen, we welcomed the
Orchestra on the threshold of its brilliant career, proud to recognize
among the torturers of catut our classmate, Howard Sypher.
But this was in the day of beginnings of little things, this was
before Charles Peter Big-Chump had perpetrated his "Cap and
Gown Waltzes," and, abetted by his satellites, had performed them
undinchingly at Commencement in the face of a long-suffering
Faculty and Board of Trustees. This was before their wily Treasurer
succeeded in entrapping a host of innocent Freshmen into buying
engraved invitations to a concert, by holding out as bait the allur-
ing prospect of seeing their names in print in '89's RECORD--a de-
ception worthy of the nimble bunco steerer. In fact, this was
before ,QO assumed control, before that bright luminary, Miller,
ascended above the horizon of obscurity and beamed upon an en-
raptured world. " Music hath charms," but none that can compete
with those of the President of the Orchestra. In times past C. P.
B. jfs patriarchal appearance and luxuriant chin beard may have
been a good drawing card, but never such as has been found in the
imposing presence, in the voluptuous form, in the radiant visage
of our one and only Miller. Ninety does not devote to music a
paltry aggregate of insignificant units, her delegate rises superior
both in quality and quantity C330 lbs.j, and in z'z'mb7fe. With the
aid of justin Sypher, the infant prodigy from '93, who has played
in the Orchestra ever since he wore long clothes, our representative
has successfully completed his year of pre-eminence, and whenever
there has been an entertainment given, or a scheme projected at
the University whose promoters were too poor to apply to the
"Germania," the Orchestra has been patriotically requested to
enliven the proceedings. On Washington's Birthday it appeared,
grimly determined to drown the Glee Club. The fun began at the
word " go." In vain the Glee Club, with open mouths and bulging
eyes, endeavored to make themselves heard, but the men who blew
and sawed kept the lead until the applause proclaimed them the
victors. The Glee Club then held a special meeting, went down to
South street, and bought up a dozen second-hand dress suits and
paper ties, and smiled when they thought how small the musicians
would feel. But once more the Orchestra displayed its sagacity.
Sending emissaries among the students, it collected a number of
college gowns and started in as the champions of that becoming
garment. Since then the Glee Club has been vowing Vengeance,
and, it is thought, will grease the riddle strings and nll thejwind
instruments With peas on Commencement Day.

+2 NINETY IN THE
T, GUN CLUB.
, 5, l
H, UN CLUB of the University
A of Pennsylvania is the title
' I .l Q of what was, until this year,
tg E Y. a most facetious organiza-
i ' , :a w if ..--ri' tion. It had a membership
of twenty, which twenty paid every year dues of two dollars per
capita. This entitled them to all the privileges and immunities of
the club, which said privileges and immunities were in number
Privilege and immunity No. 1: To think Yale Dolan a fine
Shotg and '
Privilege and immunity No. 2: To pursue the even tenor of
one's way until the dues were payable again.
The club was well Qnumerically speakingj oflicered. It had a
president, eight vice-presidents, a receiving, a keeping and a dis-
bursing treasurerg a recording, a corresponding and an inefficient
secretary QTrotterjg a maid of all work, a keeper of the seal, a
lord high cleaner of the plate, a prime minister, and two hundred
and thirty-seven standing Cwhen in a it condition they stoodj
But despite defects in organization the Gun Club possessed a
team, of which Brinton and Dolan were members, which wiped up
everything for several years. Whatever 'go was in other branches of
sport, she was large, ripe and juicy with the shooting-iron-only
once did her team fail to win the championship. And that was in
june, 18883 the match was shot oil' at " Lamb Tavern,', the license
had just been refused, and they had nothing but soft drinks.
This alfected john Brinton and George Rosengarten Qhim of the
profane nicknamej to such a degree that their shooting was poor 5
it affected Freddie Neilson to a less degree, and Yale Dolan to a de-
gree still less. But they lost to '89,
Until junior year the practice grounds were selected with re-
gard to surroundings, z'.e,, good drinking-water in the vicinity.
But in junior year, after the expenditure of much labor and expense,
John Brinton procured grounds on the outskirts of Altoona. john
said there was no use of expecting fellows to come out to practice
unless the grounds were handy.
It would be a serious error to close this account without re-
counting the wonderful shooting match that took place between
dear little Buck Trotter and Kitten-face Patterson in junior year.
The match was held on February 26th, 1889, and is still being
Trot shot at a lark just as the trap was sprung, and thus hap-
pened to break a " pigeon." Pat's gun went off before he was
ready, and a piece of felt out of Trot's hat Qthrough which the load
passedj struck the pigeon and broke it. After that, report after re-
port rang out, but the score remained 1-1. John Brinton had made
a rule that each inan just pay two cents for every bird he shot at,
whether he broke it or notg so the club encouraged this matchg
for it fairly coined money. NVhen the match was over for each day,
at trifling expense-say a cigarette-some youth would gather up
the birds, and put them away for the next match. Thus the same
box of birds Trot and Pat paid for twenty times. As we go to press,
june Ist, 1890, the match is still in progress-score: Trotter 1,

THE CHAPEL CHOIR.
INETY, containing a great many aspirants who failed to get
on the College Glee, has been largely represented in the
famous Chapel Choir.
About Junior year, owing to a pernicious note in The
.P67Z?Z.SjllUlZ7ZZ.LZ7Z recommending all those having good, strong voices
to sit near the organ, it became the fashion for the sky-larks and
nightingales of the Class to sing in the Choir. '
The Word " strong " caught Gamon's eyeg and to the secret joy
of Freddie Neilson and others, Whose taste in music is notoriously
bad, Garnon went to sit near the organ. The first Verse of every
hymn thereafter was merely a solo by Gamon. He became fagged
out on the second, hoyvever, and the rest of the Choir and the organ
could be faintly heard. The third and fourth verses were about
equally balanced. But these magnificent voices seldom last long,
and Gan1on's career was necessarily short.
On Friday, March 15th, 1889, the Voices of Truitt and Scher-
merhorn, having been rejected for the fourth consecutive time by
the College Clee, were heard in the Chapel Choir. Six Freshmen
on the extreme bench in the southeast corner of the chapel and two
Seniors in the corresponding southwest bench were much pleased
with the graceful carriage of these gentlemen, and regretted their
inability to hear their voices. The Class of 'go regretted its inability
to admire their graceful carriage.
On November 25th, 1889, Neilson and Pennirnan, desiring to
advertise the Glee Club, entered the Choir. Shortly after this
Dennison began to play ancient and obsolete hymn-tunes, such as
were sung in the Ark and the Garden of Eden, and such, conse-
quently, as only Penniman and Neilson, with their profound
Scriptural knowledge, could now sing. The suspicious connection
between these two facts we merely note, leaving the reader to draw
his own conclusions. The Glee Club, however, was sufficiently
advertised, and Neilson and Penniman were forced to wander
through college for a week, disguised as Whaiton School students,
until the enthusiasm created by the advertisement had subsided.

Next to Truitt in personal success were
Howard Sypher and Freddie Neilson, both members of 'go and of
the Chorus. Freddie said that, when the Chorus threw off their
"sheets," and walked down to the footlights in all the glory of
bare legs, he saw every girl in the house level her glass on his
legs. But this statement must be taken with a grain of salt,
inasmuch as Freddie has always appeared to us to be unnecessarily
proud of his legs. His opinion on theatrical matters, nevertheless,
is equalled in value only by his opinion on musical and footballical
matters, and he gave it as his criticism of the Acharnians that
" Pepper should have introduced more local gags, that he fNeil-
sonj should have been asked to sing a comic song, and that the
audience would have liked the 'show' better if they had been
able to ind out what it was all about."

THE SPAGHETTI CLUB.
T was the last recitation in Latin for Sophomore year. The
Professor had brought out a roll of paper, and to the great
relief of the men present had entered into a lengthy explanation
of how necessary it was to choose O116,S electives to suit the
roster. In order that the mild eloquence should not cease, a few
men paid strict attentiong the rest sat and brooded. Among the
latter were four whose hearts ached with that burning pain which
attends a sense of slighted genius. They had not neglected their
lessong on the contrary, they had compared the text most carefully
with the authorized English version, and had paid -the closest
attention to Burke, second, when he read aloud before the hour.
Yet they had been maltreated-cruelly "bucked." Brinton had
scored zero, while Coulston, Newlin and Zimmerman had fallen to
thiity below. As the Professor was 'preparing to write down the
electives they debated in mind, " Shall we make a scene? Shall
we pull his beard and curse? W'ill we stay in college if we do?
Better it were to part from him in sorrow than in wrathg more
Christianlike and less annihilatingf' NVhen their names were
called, 1'Zim " said he thought of taking prussic acid, but would
compromise on Italian , Brinton answered " Modern Latin," Newlin,
"Dagog" and Coulston, 'K Spaghetti." The club was thus organ-
ized, although "Zim" soon withdrew. Rennert was delegated to
represent the Faculty, and out of respect for that body was made
chairman. Tender associations already clustered about the name
of Rennert. Heit was who had conducted the ideal German courseg
he it was who had excused from examination nine-tenths of the
Class, and had treated the other tenth with princely generosity.
The 'fSpaghetti" began with high hopes, which experience has
not proved false. There were .no dehnite hours fixed for the meet-
ings, nor was there a regular club room. At any hour of the day,
when lack of other engagements enabled him to get a quorum,
Rennert would meet his disciples in some quiet nook, or on a steam
radiator in the hallway, and then, having quieted Delangois with
a few hot " peanuttij' he would take John on one knee, 'Warrie on
the other, and whisper the soft and musical words of balmy Italy.
These meetings, held at intervals of a few weeks, were most enjoy-
able, especially one held at Brinton's invitation, where " birra "
was imbibed through the native maccaroni tubes. Has the club
learned to speak Dago? Well, you should just see Warrie convers-
ing with a certain dark-eyed entrancing maiden who runs a
particular fruit-stand, or Brinton and Newlin whirling in dreamy
waltzes, each with a lovely Countess, at the Organ Ball, and you
will 'be convinced that the Spaghetti Club has not been without its
purpose in the grand scheme of the Universe.

THE REVEREND FULLERTON TIYPNOTIZES THE REVEREND DU HAINIEL.
THE PHILOSOPI-IIC SEMINAR.
U ALK in, Mr. Peocock! Very glad to see you, Mr.
Stevens ! H says the genial Professor, welcoming the
. latecomers to his cozy den. - " I hope you all smoke ? "
he adds dubiously, with a stern glance at two or three
embryo parsons, who edge away from the poisonous yet insidious
weeds offered by their friends, a few, dreading conditions, begin
forlornly with ghastly presentiments of the consequences. While
the Professor is improvising an ash-receiver from a blank roll, the
members take their places. jefferys and Nappy huddle into the
farthest corner 5 the Arts and Science men humbly range themselves
about the foot of the table, and the Wharton School men, with the
cheerful self-confidence of their department, gather closely about
the Professor, and share his book. " Will you begin, Mr. Rowe ? "
and, clearing his throat impressively, Rowe reads a lengthy para-
graph in Descartes' " Method," ending with the Words: " I supposed
that all the objects that had ever entered into my mind when awake
had in them no more truth than the illusions of my dreams,"
" Ah," says the Professor, smacking his lips, while his face lights
up with a smile of satisfaction, " does that seem good, Mr. Calves F "
"No, sir," replies Calves, tremblingly, While Ford and the other
Science men squirm on their chairs, growing uneasy at the thought of
being drawn on to perjure themselves by a series of compulsory ad-
missions. The Arts men, who go through the mill three times a
week, smile to see their friends prepare to suffer. We will not reveal
the process by which our instructor reduces the student's mind to
pulp. It is called the Socratic Method, and makes one have a fellow-
feeling toward the victims of the Greek sage. It is suflicient to say
that by the time the Professor has let his cigar go out for the thirtieth
time, and has borrowed all Mitcheson's matches, Calves is ready to
admit: " First, that I may wake up at any moment and ind that
I am all a mistake, second, that, from the state of my feelings,
I am either intoxicated or insane, or both, and third, whatever
is, isn't g that there are seven hundred and ninety-six uses of
the Word ' same,' and no substratum, even in a kitty or a Widow."
The Seminar now returns to Descartes. Willie Burk reads, opening
the book with a slap, and unconsciously chanting, " Here beginneth
the First Lesson." Ogden listens with that supercilious air of pat-
ronage that shows itself in the countenances of those who consider
the earth theirs, and the fulness thereof, the two " Bielas " encour-
age Burke, second, not to give up the ff real post," while from behind
" Lady Agnes " Gummey makes desperate efforts to interpose ob-
jections. Others are not so busy. Farr runs his tapering fingers
through his luxuriant curls, and dreams of the fair maid of Fressing-
lield, while NVarrie Coulston endeavors, politely but irmly, to de-
cline the Pittsburgh "stogie" that I-Iartley Merrick insists upon
thrusting into his hands. All this time Brinton has been thinking
hard the will do it sometimesj, and during a pause he breaks in
with-"Professor-er-can't we have some tricks?" Wild con-
fusion follows, in the midst of which one can hear Brinton muttering
that he didn't come to have doubts cast on the reality of hisdearest,
and that he wanted to see Warrie Coulston hypnotized and played
with. When order is restored the Professor obligingly complies.
As the state is a familiar one to the Upper Class men, and as it is
bad policy to gratify the curiosity of the children, we will only hint
broadly that our subject was in great form, tied himself in a bow-
knot to a chair rung, passed through key holes with ease, sang " I
want to be angel " fa brazen falsehoodj, and performed still more
wonderful feats that may not be mentioned outside the jealously
guarded doors of the Seminar room, or the hallowed precincts of the

6 6 OR the last time to-night, gentlemen," observed Felix,
uncoiling his legs, " you must allow me to ventilate one
of my heresies to you." This was the tenth heresy of
I the evening. "Mitchie's" sensitive mouth fell, Ogden
shut his teeth with a snap that bit in two the flowery metaphor
that was just dropping from his lips, while Burke, second, took a
terrific pull at his cheroot, and endeavored to feign an air of easy
unconsciousness, as if he had been used to smoking all his life,
instead of having begun last week. The rest of the Seminar
inclined their ear-iiaps at the most convenient angle for catching
the sound, and listened attentively.
"Gentlemen," said Felix, proceeding with the ventilation,
"the heresy is this: I don't believe that George Gascoigne was
born in 1535. Cfremendous sensation. Cries of "Oh! myf'
"How shockingf, etc., etc.j Don't be surprised, gentlemen, and
remember that this is merely my opinion. Of course you are
welcome to your own, I wouldn't presume to -1" etc., etc.
"But," said Lloyd, "Mister-Professor Schelling, that can-
not possibly be." QI-Iere Biela entered into a profound statistical
discussion which we cannot publishj
"Excuse me, Mr. Lloyd," replied Mister-Professor Schell-
ing, "but you must place yourself in the position of a man in
the sixteenth century. Then you cannot fail to perceive that
George Gascoigne was not born in 1 5 3 5. Your opinion, Mr. Lloyd,
I cannot agree with, indeed I think it unfounded, if you'll pardon
my plain speaking." QSmiling sweetly at Lloyd.j
f' Oh, certainly," said Lloyd, boiling over with rage.
"Really, Mr. Lloyd," said Felix, trying to look as if he
had not made a break, " I hope I haven't offended you. You see,
gentlemen lf' QThe remaining sixteen manuscript pages of
this speech of apology we have unfortunately 1ost.j
And now Burke, second, having taken another pull at his
cheroot, which nearly knocked him down, said: " Professor, what
would you define a poem as?" This was a most unhappy move.
The rest of the Seminar looked daggers at the unfortunate Burkie,
and then resigned themselves to the situation. '
FeliX's eye brightened, and, twisting his legs into the shape
of caduceus, he started out: " Gentlemen, understand nie, this is
my own opinion, and -J' QBut here again, owing to the careless-
ness of a servant girl, who upset a lamp on our notes, we are
obliged to retrench, and give but a small fragment of FeliX's
remarksj " . . . subjectivity . . . highest type of
poetry . . . true poem . . . quite right . . . I hope
you'll pardon me, gentlemen, for inflicting my own views on you
at such length."
" Only too happy," said Hartley Merrick, from the back of the
room, and the Seminar closed.

ENIOR year has come and gone. For three long years every
student looks forward to Senior year with nervous impatience,
and wwhen that Senior year comes, how time flies-more
particularly in the second term, when the Professors begin to
ask 'the students, " When does the term end ?" " When do your ex-
aminations begin ? " Suddenly the announcement is made in chapel
that the "examinations begin on Monday. 'J Then the hurry-scurryg
everyone anxious-the honor men to pass with distinction, the
others simply to get through. How far off that strife seemed when
We returned to college last fall-so far, indeed, that we took things
very coolly. We noticed that the genial, manly Prof. O. H. Kendall
had gone, his place had been filled by Professor Fisher. He hardly
had a chance to show his Worth before he collided with a train, with-
out injury to the said train. Of course football held our attention
for some time, the University team giving us cause to alternately
shout and groan, and our Class team-What an unlucky team it
was. We played 793 first, and while they failed to score, Brinton
and Boyer each made atouch-down, and Freddie Neilson made three,
kicking two goals from them made our score 24, but the "Captain H
had his knee painfully injured, which virtually incapacitated him.
Diggles, who played superbly against ,Q2, sprained his ankle, and
with him and Neilson hobbling painfully, the team lost heart, and
thus the game.
joe Penniinan thought he could sing second bass, so he and
Rosengaiten, of YQZ, agitated the formation of a Glee Club that
would be good enough for Joe to sing in. After much persuasion
they succeeded in procuring Captain Neilson as leader, and carried
their scheme to a successful issue.
"Time galloped withal," and we had arrived at the bowl-
iight, and a pretty tame one it was. Ninety-two won it, but john
Brinton did yeoman service in the nick of time. Lew Audenried,
Freddie Neilson, Joe Mitcheson and Buck Trotter each also destroyed
a suit of clothes apiece in the interest of ,92.
The junior Ball was the next event of interest. It was very
successful, except with regard to supper. The Committee had
evidently under-calculated the appetites of their guests.
What a rollicking time we had in the southwest corner-room
in the 265th floor of the Bullitt Building on the evening of February
13th! "Del" Newlin, joe Patterson and Billy Trotter were all sick
and unable to be there, nothing else, however, marred our enjoy-
ment. President Brinton was compelled to be absent, and Warrie
Hale took his place.
Two nights later the new Glee Club showed a large audience
at Association Hall that the University had at last found men
whose energy and conscientiousness in attending rehearsals enabled
them to easily equal the clubs of other colleges. The Banjo Club
played finely that night. Both clubs, with the Orchestra, had
great success at the Washington's Birthday celebration, and' at
In the spring the University of Pennsylvania lost to Swarth-
more on the track. But to make up for it the baseball team licked
everything that came its way-Princeton coming its way among the
others. The students, however, gave the team wretched support,
and it ran, heavily in debt, and had it not been for the great liber-
ality of The Mask and Wig, the team would have gone under.
That same Mask and Wig-how proud the University should
be of it! On Friday and Saturday, the 9th and roth of May, that
organization gave the public a second chance to see what a really
excellent performance college men, and more especially University
men, can give. No professional show could have run with more
smoothness, the chorus of sixty were faultless in drill and move-
ments, and the principals simply covered themselves and their
college with glory. We need not enter into details of the perform-
ance of " Ben Franklin," it is so fresh in the memories of allg we
need only say that the club heartily deserved the continuous
applause and cheers that rang out in the beautiful Broad Street
Theatre, and again in the Opera House on the gd of june.
The success of our Ivy Ball has been sufficiently dwelt upon
elsewhere, but We must. say here that it is our Erm opinion that it
was the best college ball ever given.
It is with pleasure that We note the interest taken by the
Faculty in the college organizations. The baseball management
gave them passes to all games, and at one game as many as three
Instructors were present. Professor McElroy attended the G-lee
Club concert and the performance of " Ben Franklin." It was under-
stood that he was a committee appointed by the Faculty to show
their keen interest in all their students undertake. The sooner the
Faculty appreciates the value to the University of her under-
graduate organizations the better it Will be all around. Then those
Who have labored hard and Well for their Alma Mater will be treated
with more courtesy and consideration than they now receive.
And now, when Ivy day and Class day have passed, when the
symposium and its effects have passed, nothing remains of college
life to '90 save Commencement. Then we are launched forth on the
Worldg but when our backs are turned on our Alma Mater, let us not
forget to cast loving glances back at her and wish and do her Well,
and let our Alma Mater not forget what We have done for her.

come here for the purpose of voting on the co-educational' question.
I am opposed to it, and 1,111 going to vote " no."

you mind asking Alfred to close that door ? T here's a most damn-
able draught blowing on my back. Well, as I was about to say-
and, for that matter, I suppose I might just as well say it now as
any other time, although I can't say that Iive ever seen it stated
that Way-as I was about to say, gentlemen, I think it would be--
yes, most undoubtedly-a very great advantage to-oh! pshavv.
Well, I always had a very poor memory for dates. My father's
mother used to say . . . Well, I declare I cannot recall it-oh,
well-I-never mind, it'll come back to me in a moment.

also dot I don't care.
PROP. BARKER: S'very curious thing th't no one's said 'n'thing

PROF. JACKSON! Young gentlemen,-the question of intro-
ducing co-education 7I'Z61'BZjl is-to 1191 mind-efztzkfegf uncalled for.
Personally, I am ilzorauglzbf opposed to it-in every way.-- I
fail to see how we can make the two things compatible-without
running the greaiest-risks.
PROF. SADTLER: I believe in letting the women come in.
This practice was known a'ready to the ancients, and inet with
good results. But I'll have to ask you to excuse me, as I have a
lecture next hour with the Sophomores, and I've run out of tapers.
PROF. EASTQN: I agrhree in great part with Profethor Sadtler,
who theemth to be tho converthant with the thubject. I would
like to thay, however, that the Chaldeeth and Hindooth plathed
women on a much lower bathith than the ancient Partheeth.
PROF. KCENIG: Vy, of course dnot. Also, dot I tink dis is
tamn rotg I haf a goot notion to dclear out a little bit, but intent
PROF. GOODSPEED: Well, I donlt see why they shouldn't
come here. They ought to be allowed to take the course in Mechan-
ics here, at least, because it's far and away the best in the country.
At any rate, I'm from Harvard, and I think I'm pretty smart for
my age and size. That's MW opinion!

track, you're confounding the two senses of the word. Anybody
can argue that way. Stick to your point. We can't talk about the
Irish question and co-education at the same time. It reminds me
of the story of one of the old philosophers-Epictetus, I think it
was-who was a slave. His master began to beat him and twist
his leg to make him do something he Wanted him to. Epictetus
said, " If you do that you'll break my leg, and then I won't be of
any use to you." He didn't stop, and finally the philosophers leg
snapped, whereupon he remarked, " There, I told you it would l"

MY DEAR JAYNE:
- We must do something to boom the Univer-
sity, and to keep it in the newspapers. As I have not been inter-
viewed by a reporter for at least an hour and a half, I would
suggest that you direct the Faculty to vote in favor of co-education
at your meeting to-day, by a large majority, say I9 to 2, or some-
thing of the sort, so as to create a sensation. Then have the news
sent direct to the Associated Press. I have everything arranged
after that. Giye my orders to the Faculty without comment.
Yours in haste, '
I WILLIAM, Impemtor eff Rex.
A reverent hush falls upon the meeting while the ballot is
taken, which results in a verdict according to the charge, the Goat
and the Silver Fox tiling a minority report out of twenty-one votes
cast. The Irish Champion voted six times-once for co-education
and five times for Protection and Home Rule. Barker voted for
himself and S' William,-while Schelling's vote is scattered between
"my friend Gosse " and Saintsbury.
Shortly after this the ancient and honorable Board of Trustees
assembles, and proceeds to sit quietly, but firmly, on the proposi-
tion to establish a system of co-education. At this juncture the
great Kaiser produces his little Deus ex machina, in the shape of 'a
woman's annex, which is followed by prolonged rejoicings on the
part of the students, and a two weeks' spree on the part of " Pomp "
and " Otto H-and the University is-SAVED I
SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS .
THE BRUTES, THE DOCTOR AND THE
9 WAS many, many months ago,
And in Novemberee,
When Dr. Leuf reported us
Unto the Facultee.
Said Leuf unto the Facultee:
I saw but yesterday
The 'brutes ' a-playing '93
In a disgraceful way,
For Brinton did up Fisher,
And hit him in the eye,
And Strader knocked down Patterson,
And Diggles made Spaeth cryg
And Crawford had to leave, because
His toe was trod upon,
And Willson got quite indisposed,
For rude boys threw him down.
The only man," continued Leuf,
" Of all the men who are
On '9o's team, who played a de-
Cent, polished game was Farr.
For Neilson really kicked the ball
So viciously, they say,
It hit some Freshmen on the head,
'Ere they could get away.
It was a most repulsive sight,
But I disgusted am,
Because I lost a quarter bright,
Which I had bet with Sam."
The Facultee are rather pleased.
This slugging work soon takes
A hold on Thornpson's Celtic blood,
He thinks of Irish Hwakesf'
And Koenig thinks of German duels,
The Dean of carving cats,
And McElroy of hacking words,
Some few ofhaving U ratsgl'
But Easton thinks of all the dirt
And mud the players get,
And jackson thinks of butting heads
Whene'er the charges niet,
And Barker thinks of work and force,
And how the sirens buzz,
While Artie Goodspeed thinks, of course
The sarne way Barker does.
So all looked fiercely round at Leuf,
And said, " Young man, bewareg
You'll get yourself in trouble if
You don't take extra care."
Then Leuf implored the Facultee:
Don't censure me at all,
I've Worked so hard for you upon
The campus playing ball,
And strove to keep for many years
A closed Gymnasium,
So none the apparatus could
Destroyg but has it come
To this ? U He sank into a chair,
The Facultee grew still,
Then cried at once, " Dear Dr. Leui
Stay with us all, until
The wished millennium comes along,
And then perhaps We may
Procure some one who will do more
Than draw his weekly pay."
'Twas many, many years ago,
And in Novemberee,
When all that's just been told occurred
Within the Facultee.
Give thanks from morn till dark,
And then till dark gets darker,
Go raise the Hag and ring the bells,
For now vve're through with Barker.
Since we have all pulled through,
And Work with him is done,
Let's all kneel down With grateful heart,
And pray for Ninety-one.
There was a young fellow called Jayne,
Who ten years ago used to raise Cain,
But now that he's Dean
He is no longer green,
Which some of us know to our pain.
A spindle-shanked fellow named " Felix,
Used to coil his legs into a helix,
By a piece of hard luck
I One day he got stuck,
And was never more heard of, this Felix.
There was an old codger named Patten,
VVhO111 the Wharton School men tried to Hatteng
But Patten was old,
And the Weather was cold,
And they failed to convince Mr. Patten.
' Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
I am clothed in a habit of black 5
My memory's short,
But talking's my forte-
Have you guessed my name yet ?-It is MAC!"

JOHNNY JONES AND Hrs SISTER SUE.
A TALE OF WOE.
A curious Freak in a Physic's room grew-
Listen to my tale of woe-
A curious Freak of dough-colored hue,
Whose hair was tawny, and his whiskers, too.
Listen to my tale'of woe.
One clay some trouble began to brewi-
Listen to my tale of woe-
And the curious Freak got into a stew,
Since Sypher the thoughtj behaved too I' new."
Listen to my tale of woe.
Hard trials for these two- I
G. F. B. and "Artie," too- '
And old "Sypl1," who was too new.
Phooh I Phooh I I Phooh I I I Phooh I I I I
Listen to my tale of woe.
This little affair raised a hullabaloo-
Listen to my tale of woe-
And the men were mad, you can bet your shoe
Since it as an insult, they did construe
When the curious Freak gave " Syph " the "
Listen to my tale of woe.
Breakers ahead I For them, too I
G. F. B. and "Artie," too,
Because the class, with gloomy hue,
Threatened G. F. B. to Udo."
Listen to my tale of woe.
An enraged committee to the Physic's room fi
Listen to my tale of woe-
Deterrnined the Freak to interview,
And make him swallow his spleen with rue-
Ful face, -ful face.
Listen to my tale of WQC.
Hard trials for these two !
G. F. B. and "Artie," too."
For -the class of sinister hue
Scored a Victori-o-re !
Listen to my tale of woe.
But what of the Freak of dough
Listen to my tale of woe-
Whose hair was tavvny and his whiske
And his assistant, "Artie" Goo-
dspeed, Goo-ldspeed, Goo-
dspeed. Listen to my tale of woe.
Then souls to Beelzebub shortly flew,
And there in torments hot did stew,
Until for mercy they did sue.
Alas I Too true ! l
G. F. B. and "Artie"
Reflect upon my tale of woe.

THE BIG FOUR 5
THE WHARTON 'SCHOOL IWUTUAL ADNIIRATION SOCIETY.
THE WI-IART-ON SCHOOL PRIMER.
H, what is this nice big room with the thick red door and the
dus-ty old books ?
This, little boys and girls, is the place which the Col-lege
Fac-ul-ty' call the Whart-on School !
Why do they call it that?
Because they think that it is a Whart-on the Col-lege De-pa1t-
Do they let peo-ple go in-to the room?
Oh, yes, but some of them do not come out a-gain.
When you go in what do you see?
The real-ly smart part of the Class of '90, although it is quite a
mis-cel-lan-eous ass-ort-ment. There is Wil-lie Trot-ter, who can
trot down to the Ass-em-bly Room and back a-gain dur-ing one of
Mads hours, and Dick-y Stoyle, who fsjtoyles not, nigh-ther does he
spin, not to men-tion Lew-y Au-ten-to-Read, the blonde ath-lete and
he-ro of ma-ny a " scrap " for Penn's hon-or, There is little Man-
zy Kush-ida from Ire-land, the Jap-an-ese wrest-lerg and Charley
Peo-cock, the an-om-aly, be-ing a good boy from the naughty town
of Read-ing. Ber-tie Stod-dart, who will soon wear a pair of nice
new Wings as a can-di-date for the Eth-ical Cul-ture So-cietyg
Frankie Lee, who writes bad po-ems, and who thinks pret-ty girls
and din-ners are cor-rect, and Hol-dy Scherrn-mer-horn, art-ist and
com-po-ser of the tear-pro-Vok-ing song, " Unc-le's Brown New Eng-
land Pants," are all there-some-times. Then there is the quon-dam
mem-ber, Le-o Rowe, who now stud-ies Dutch in Par-is. Quon-darn,
chil-dren, means "since-ly," and is not the same word that pa-pa
says when he shuts a win-dow on his ting-er. Yes, it sounds much
like it, though.
But what do all of these dear lit-tle boys do? A
They sit still and think they are think-ing while -wait-ing for
the Fac-ul-ty. Like Cal-phur-nia, the Fac-ul-ty is be-yond sus-
There go the Whart-on School boys to a lec-ture! See their
bright fac-es, which are quite mis-lead-ing. There is Pro-fes-sor
Pat-ten. He and the boys are go-ing to have a qui-et lit-tle Mill
with the Po-lit-i-cal E-con-omy. These are Greek words, childreng
do not monkey with them. D
Then they go to Doc-tor Falk-ner, who tells them pleas-ant-ly
that since they all are here he will op-en with a full houseg
where-up-on Man-zy asks if jack Pott is tak-ing a spec-ial course..
Oh, un-quest-ion-ab-ly !
QMy, what a long word D
Ah I There is Pro-fes-sor James. He wears a bright smile,
and seems to an-tic-i-pate some-thing. The Class al-so an-tic-ifpate
some-thing, but with-out the smile. Wil-lie re-cites the Con-sti-tu-
tion of the Na-tion, Ar-ti-cle I, Sec-tion 2, Par-a-graph 3, word-ing it
as rfol-lows: H The Pres-i-dent shall have power to iill his va-can-cy,
dur-ing the dis-tress of the Sen-ate, who shall ex-pire at the end of
their next ses-sion." Then Wil-lie waits, and the Pro-fes-sor says,
"Any-thing else?" Such a meth-od as this is ex-haust-ive, and
the Class thinks so, too. When he is through, you could not ex-tract
an-y more in-for-ma-tion, ev-en if you us-ed a suction pump.
Pro-fes-sor Thomp-son loves his lit-tle boys, and likes to lis-ten to
their in-no-cent prat-tle and those bright and or-ig-inal es-says out
of the En-cy-clo-paedia. He is right on to them, as naught-y men
say, and to see him sit on a Whart-on stu-dent is a sight un-e-
qualled in Penn-Syl-van-ia.
Now they troop to their les-son in His-tory.
When they see the ex-am-ina-tion that Pro-fes-sor McMas-ter
has pre-pa-red for them, they will wish they had troop-ed the oth-er
way. The Pro-fes-sor says : " Gen-tle-men, you will please make
a map of the Un-i-verse and a syn-op-sis of the Sol-ar System, ad-
ding in-ci-dent-al-ly a sketch on Con-sti-tu-tion-al De-vel-op-ment,
with for-ty pag-es of the Tar-iff laws. Get this up in good shape
and hand it in by twen-ty min-utes."
One of the lit-tle boys says a bad word, which makes the place
smell like HZS. Then the Class, like the Do-do, be-come ex-find.
A CLASS MEETING.
CENE: Chemical lecture room. Brinton and Kushida behind
the counter, "Del" Newlin on it, and the rest in front.
Select catches are sung by the Glee Club members, While
the others writhe under the torture.
BRINTON: " Gentlemen, come to order! Walters, take off your
hat! Get down off that counter, Del, or I'll fire you! Warrie, can't
you stop monkeying for five minutes and listen? "
KUSHIDA: " Therets no quorum! "-Qwith a gleeful smiley.
BRINTON: " Then I appoint Boyer and myself to rake the
building and get one."'
A The committee retireg Kitten Patterson steals chalk and turns
ou the exhausts. Farr playfully slings the back of a chair at
Coulston, which misses hin1 and crashes into the Window of Spang-
ler's study. The men peep through and see " Lunkhead " Peterson
on his knees, giving thanks for his deliverance from deadly peril.
Brinton and Boyer return, dragging in Miller, who is counted as
three, and the meeting proceeds.
BRINTON: " The first thing in order is the reading of the
minutes." Loud yells from all parts of the room, " I move We dis-
pense with the minutes. Zingl Zing!! Zingararall! Z-z-zing!"
BRINTON: " Fellows, Wonlt you be quiet? The next thing is
the question of holding a symposium. Now, I'm opposed to any
such tea-and-toast-good-boyand-his-teacher arrangement as '89
held last year. I think --H ,
NEILSON Qsarcasticallyj: "Is there ai motion before the meet-
ing ? "
BRINTON Qcrushedj: " 'Will some one make amotion ? "
MERRICK: 4' As oiiicial motion-maker, I move we hold a sym-
posium, and that the menu consist of pretzels, beer and cut plug
fcheersj. I don't Want to discuss the question Qloud cheersj.
I think before We part we all Want to have one more grand-er-
one of those good, quiet evenings?
STEVENS fpensivelyj: " A nice, good, quiet evening."
MERRICK: "The fellows can bring their pipes, and some of
them can sing." C' Annie Laurie " is mentioned, and Hartley sits
down hastilyj -
BURK: "Dearly beloved-I mean Mr. President, this is dis-
graceful! The very idea! .S67ZZ'07'S, have you no regard for your
dignity fgroansj. I see ten prospective fathers of the church
sitting with those who will vote for this symposium Qcheersj. I
Wish I had an hour to talk with you. I would give you a history
of thet University since I7 58 Cgroans and cries of " Put him out nj.
BRINTON: f' Mr. Burk, cut it short." '
GAMON: "Mr, President, I move to strike out the Word beer
and substitute ice-Water. "
. FEUSTMANN: " Mr. President, I move to strike out the word
ice-Water and substitute circus lemonadefl
STEVENS: " Mr. President, I move to substitute cigarettes fox
OGDEN: "Mr, President, I move to strike out pretzels and
insert the Word pie." -
BRINTON: " Gentlemen, I rule you all out of order" fgeneral
BURK: " Mr. President, you're out of order" Qshoutingj.
BRINTON: "Mr. Burk, I am no! out of order. -Will you sit
down, or shall I put you down ? "
BURK: " I rise to a point of order--I appeal-I-" E
BRINTON fobduratej: " I'll lump the amendments and put the
question." QWild confusion, during which Brinton endeavors to
discover how he has violated parliamentary law. The amenders
Wrangle with each other, and act as animated targets for volleys
BRINTON : " All in favor of beer, please rise I H Qforty get up,
" Del " Newlin standing on a chairj. " All opposed " feight risej.
'tThe amendments are lost. Has anyone got anything more to
BOYER: " Yes, Mr. President, I have a great deal to say. I
consider it my duty to kick. I always have kicked, and I always
will kick. I move that the question be laid on the table, and that
the sum of ten dollars be appropriated to pay the baseball nine's
doctor's bill? I
MITCHESON: "I wan't to say a word about track athletics.
The Class owes Frank Dole fifty dollars. I move -." QLoud
shouts of "-1-Dole! We never saw Dole do anything!
Pay him yourself ! nj
BRINTON Qreiiectivelyj: " Gentlemen, this seems to me to be
out of order. The question is -"
LEE: "Never mind the question, Mr. President. What we
want to know is, whether we are going to invite the whole
College. I dontt want to make an exhibition of myself before the
children. I confess my weakness Qchorus, "We all know it"j.
'fThe very thought staggers me" Qshouts of " You've been down
the street I" U Take another with me, old chap !" etc., etc.j.
LEE Qscornfullyj: "Will the gentleman who made that state-
ment step into the hall? I will take great pleasure in dancing the
Wharton School Clog on his shirt front. QNO one steps out.j
TRUITT : " If Mr. Lee is through, I would like to express my
horror at the idea of perverting the youth of this institutiong as
Horace says - I'
NEWLIN : " Yes, yes. There wouldn't be nearly enough stuff
to go around."
COULSTON : " Why not have each man bring a lady friend F"
QLoud cheers from the back benches, and hisses from the front.
jeers, taunts and shrieks of " Chippy hunter! " "jay bird!" etc.j
AUDENRIED: " Gentlemen, I have a proposition to make that I
hope will meet with universal favor, as it is the intention of the
Wharton School to carry it through. There is a Professor here,
a native of Erin, whose presence would adorn the festivities. I
move that Prof. Thompson be invited to give the blessingfl
QHoWls, groans, cheers, hisses, chalk slinging and general disorder.
Merrick swears, and Mitchie objects. Gummey and Calves are seen
GUMMEY: " Mr. President, as a member of the Church Club, I
CALVES: " Mr. President, as a member of Hale's Poker
Social, I protest."
MERRICK: "I Hatly refuse to accept that amendment, Mr.
President. I Hing defiance in Mr. Audenried's face, Mr. President."
BRINTON: " All in favor of the amendment rise." QThe
Whaiton School rises in a body.j "All opposed." fThe rest of
the Class rises.j " The motion is lost."
AUDENRIED: " Then, Mr. President, I will have nothing to do
with your symposium. I consider the action of the Class con-
temptible. It is mean and disgraceful. 'Buck,' I scorn you, I
spurn you from me." fTrotter begins to weep, and Stoyle leads
Audenried aside and endeavors to soothe him. Several men leave
ROSENGARTEN: "Let's do as Hartley tells us. I always do."
BRINTON: " All in favor rise. Those opposed. The motion is
carried." QDeafening applausej
BURK: " There is no quorum present, Mr. President." QNo'one
listens to him. There is a stampede for the door, men vaulting
over the counter and knocking down chairs.j
BRINTON: "Hold on there! Stop ! We're not through yet,
come back I "
KUSHIDA : " I guess we'll have to adjourn."
BRINTON: " A motion to adjourn is in orderf'
KUSHIDA: "I move We adjourn! " QTo Frank Leej-" Second
my motion." Lee, who has been copying out three reports of
the meeting, one for the Penn.gflvam'an, one for the T1'e7zz'01z Wag'-
back, and one for the Camden Daily Hayseed, seconds the motion,
and the three march out, leaving Brinton alone and stuttering
with rage. A

EXTRACT FRGM THE PIOUS PRIG.
THE OFFICIAL JOURNAL on '89.
6 E are inexpressibly shocked and grieved to hear that
a number of vicious '90 men Qin the Science sections,
we believej have been heard to use unhallowed lan-
guage in speaking of their kind instructors. We
weep to think that the peaceful rooms, which for the past year
have re-echoed only to our hymns and spiritual devotions, should
be dehled by the profane wickedness of malicious fault-finders.
They have actually murmured against Mr. Kidwell, who is as
-considerate as he is sweet-tempered. Why do they dislike long
lessons when they are given for their own good? If one goes
insane, will he not be lodged at the State's expense? How wrong
it is to carp at Mr. Keller's strong language. We have heard
perfectly innocent parrots use the same. words. His chemical
performances, though uninteresting, are at least harmless, while
there is always a chance of his drinking some acid. F
" Our blood boils when we think of the slights put upon dear
Mr. Peterson because he prepared for his present position by per-
forming the humble duties of a district messenger boy. It is but
natural for him to spurn the odious name 'Lunkheadf Charity
bids us overlook his defectsg and if he is slow, remember it is due
to his previous employment. But the most unjust complaints are
those against Mr. Spangler, who, having served for years as stew-
ard on a coasting schooner, has a complete and practical knowl-
edge of stoves, spigots, grid-irons, and all cooking utensils.
These grumblers who object to being conditioned, kicked up
defective iiues, or Hung into the coal-box, should make allow-
ance for the pleasantries of a bluff sailor. If the degraded sinners
in 'go wish to escape eternal combustion let them follow our
saintly example. When an instructor patronizes and overworks
you, meekly subrnitg if you know of an old custom, avoid the
unholy thing as the temptation of Satan, if a professor's shoes
are dusty, polish them with your tongue, and you will be like us."

Prof. E. 151. Horsford.
This preparation is a brain food. It increases the capacity for mental
labor, and acts as a general tonic and vitalizer. It rests
the tired brain and imparts thereto new
life and energy.
DR. D. P. CDGCLIURE, Rantoul, II1., says:
" Very beneficial to strengthen the intellect."
DR. O. C. STOUT, Syracuse, FLY., says: . , '
"I gave it to one patient who was unable to transact the most ordi-
nary business, because his brain was ' tiredland confused' upon the least
mental exertion. Immediate beneiit and ultimate recovery followed."
DR. GI-IHS. T. CDITCHEDLI, Ganandaigua, Fl. Y., says:
" I recommend it as a restorative in all cases where the nervous sys-
tern has been reduced below the normal standard by overwork, as found in
brain workers, professional men, teachers, students, etc."
DR. F. I-U. LYTLAE, Lxebanon, Ill., says:
" I have personally used it with marked advantage when overworked
and the nervous system much depressed."
DR. E, Cd. ROBERTSON, Cleveland, O., says:
" Can cordially recommend it as a brain and nerve tonic."
