Preface vpn mv E, the women of the class of l9l0, offer this First issue of THE CROCEUS to the public hoping that they will be tol- erant of its many defects and shortcomings. It has been L7 gs! P our hope and aim to make our book as truly representative, and of as high an order, as any annual issued by a sep- arate women's college. The difficulty of the undertaking can easily be seen by a comparison of the number of women at this university with those in the various women's colleges. Gur small numbers, together with the absence of any dormitory life, have presented almost insurmountable obstacles to the realization of our ideal. TO THE MEMORY OF SUSAN B. ANTHONY AS A TOKEN OF THE LOVE, APPRECIATION AND ORATITUDE OF THE WOMEN OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER THIS BOOK IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED W ' L? , f 555555 Miss Susan B. Anthony's Work in Behalf of Coeducation I Z' . OR fifty years the University of Rochester had been an insti- tution whose sole aim was the education of men. But during that half century a strong sentiment in favor of the higher education of women had been spreading through- out the land. ln the west great state universities were growing up which were planned on a coeducational basisg while in the east the older and more conservative colleges, one after another, were reluctantly opening their doors to women. It was in the early nineties that the question of coeducation first began to be agitated in Rochester. For years, Susan B. Anthony had desired that young women should be allowed an equal share in the educational advantages afforded by this university. And furthermore, as college education for girls became more popular, a feeling grew up among the citizens of Rochester that, with a well-equipped college in their city, they should be able to educate their daughters as well as their sons at home. ln l89l the first conference with regard to the matter was held. The Trustees of the University decided, however, that the scheme was quite impracticable on account of the lack of funds to meet the increased expense which the admission of women would entail. But the matter continued to be agitated, and in l898, the Trustees of the University agreed to make the institution coeducational, provided the women of Rochester would raise flil 00,000 to be added to the endowment of the university, within a year. At the yearis end the stupendous task was far from being accomplished, though considerable progress had been made. Yielding to the pressure of public opinion, the Trustees extended the time for another year, and reduced the sum demanded to 350,000 Miss Anthony, fully occupied with the strenuous duties of her calling, left the actual collection of the funds to others, and was quite appalled to hear, on Friday, September 7, 1900, from the secretary of the fund committee, that there was still lacking 358,000 to complete the required IO CROCEUS amount, and that the time limit expired the next day. The burden of the enterprise which she had inaugurated was to fall upon her shoulders after all. Yet she was equal to the emergency. She spent a sleepless night, but by mid-afternoon of the next day she had succeeded in secur- ing additional pledges for 56,000 The day was waning, however, the Board was in session and was liable to adjourn at any timeg and the cause would be lost. Finally, at the crucial moment, her indomitable perseverance conquered. The last 352,000 was pledged by an aged and wealthy citizen of Rochester, and Miss Anthony proceeded in triumph to the place where the Trustees were in session. But her triumph was short-lived. The pledges were duly examined and approved, with the exception of that for the last 332000, which was declared invalid owing to the age and precarious health of the donor. Miss Anthony was stunned. Should the battle be lost, and on a technicality? Never! She had not wished the cause of coeducation to suffer from any connec- tion with her name, she told the august gentlemen, and then added hrmly: U I now pledge my life insurance for the S2,000.,' The deed was done - the task accomplished - and in the language of the press, " the doors of the University of Rochester were opened to women." That they had been opened by the women, for the women, might with equal propriety have been added. There is one grave fact regarding this enterprise that the public per- haps did not grasp. When the credit for the success of the coeduca- tional movement is attributed to Miss Anthony, few but those who knew her best are able adequately to count the cost. The strain had been stupendous upon a woman of her years: and it resulted in a stroke of apoplexy, slight and apparently not serious, but marking the begin- ning of the final collapse. l-ler physical vigor was never regained in all its fullness, and her buoyant spirit sank under a depression that she was never able fully to shake oft. And what would it have meant if Miss Anthony had not been moved to complete the work that she had begun and to fling herself into the breach at the critical moment? Simply this - that the consummation of the cause of coeducation would have been indefinitely postponed, and the girls of Rochester, for the future, at the price perhaps of much expense and sacrifice, would have had to seek their college training elsewhere, or never have been able, many of them, to attain it at all. The Trustees, owing to the apathy of the wealthy citizens of Rochester, and the growing hostility of the alumni, were by no means ready to CROCEUS II make any further concessions to the women of the city - their petitioners - and it is highly probable that, if the funds had not been forthcoming, on that September afternoon, the doors of the University of Rochester would have remained permanently closed to women. Whatever, then, may be our convictions concerning the cause to which Miss Anthony devoted her life, to her memory we must pay ungrudgingly the full tribute of respect and honor. As a result of her self-sacrificing struggle we, the women of the Twentieth Century, are enjoying the heritage of higher education which was denied those of her own generation. .....-swim aft '-- - I .if .

LAMSON CROCEUS 29 Retirement of Professor Lattimore and Professor Gilmore At the close of the last college year, in June, l908, Professor Sam- uel A. Lattimore and Professor Joseph I-I. Gilmore retired from active work on the university faculty. Both professors had been instructors at the University of Rochester for the past forty-one years. On Friday May 29, at the last chapel service before senior week, Professor Lattimore and Professor Gilmore gave their farewell addresses to the students. A bouquet of forty-one roses was presented to each of them in memory of their forty-one years of distinguished service to the university. It is a matter of satisfaction to all the students that neither professor has quite severed his connections with the college on his retirement, and that they have continued their interest and sympathy in all college enter- prises. . N CROCEU5 3l Professor Mixer As I Knew Him-H. R. C. 1905 It is to be regretted that you girls of 1910 have not the privilege of knowing Professor lVlixer. He was a man whom you could not know without loving, a truly gentle man, and more. I-lis scholarship and char- acter were the product of years of effort and discipline, his manner the expression of an uncommonly sweet nature. If you had been in his classes, you would probably have been impressed, as we were, with the breadth of his knowledge and the fine- ness of his taste. But l venture to say that you would have carried away a far stronger impression of the conscientious thoroughness and kind help- fulness of the teacher. I remember he once told a class that was strug- gling with beginning French, that they H would surely find it better after they got the ice broken, and were successfully in," - a metaphor which is not a fair sample of his discourses, for he seldom missed the point of difhculty. Qccasionally he would set aside lessons and give one of his ' talksf which were full of things that no young person could think out for himself, and which were unconsciously stored away by many students, to be brought out years after, at times of decision or of testing. I have heard many a man of classes graduated fifteen to thirty years ago, quote Dr. Mixer on important questions. And no less did he remember his students, for he could recall nearly every one who had passed through his classes during his long service. and in the cases of many, not only recall, but tell with interest and pride, their history after leaving college. It would delight the heart of many middle aged and old men, to hear themselves spoken of as H the boys," in the tone of part ownership and entire love, which I have often heard. It would scarcely have seemed strange if a conservative elderly man, as he was when women were admitted to our college, attached as he was to the institution and all connected with it, had regarded the new class of students as intruders. Far from that, he welcomed our coming, as repre- senting to this community a great step forward in principles of education. With delightful frankness, he once told me, at a reception given by the women students, that nothing gave him more happiness than to see the girls receiving mental and social training, for, he said, there could be no great progress from one generation to the next, until the potential mothers, as well as fathers, were liberally educated. To express his interest in our presence in the college, as well as to give us inspiration to earnest work, Dr. Mixer gave to us the portrait of Nlary Lyon, which hangs in our rooms. Even after his resignation from active service, Dr. Mixer was often seen taking a walk around the campus block, which, I believe, had been his daily constitutional for years. Nothing is more expressive of his love for U. of R. His thoughts and affections encircled it and dwelt in it. So strong was his desire to die within reach of the university, that, after 32 CROCEUS the death of his daughter and consequent breaking up of his home, rather than leave Rochester to live with his remaining daughter, he remained here, practically alone. Speaking of his home, I wonder whether I can give you any idea of the atmosphere of it. It was there that one found, even more than in the classroom, evidence of the breadth of his culture and experience, for there were the pictures, letters, and other mementos of his travels, study, 'acquaintances and friendships. There also it was impossible not to see the great love of the good man for everything good. If only you could meet him, what a happy impression you would have! l-le would extend his hand to you, with slow spoken, kindly words of courtesy, which would make you feel as though you were talking for the first time with a life-longefriend of your father, whose great desire was to make you also his friend, and to render you some service. I believe that this appreciative friendship of his students was even more necessary to him than to us, for while we came and went, each with our own aim, his sole purpose was to minister to all mankind through us, and therefore we constituted his field of influence, his great life work. So every word that came to us from him, came with a sincerity and force which made us love the man, then and always. CROCEUS 33 Letter From President Rhees To the Editors of the Croceus - It gives me very great pleasure to offer my congratulations to the women students of the University of Rochester on the appearance of the initial number of their Annual. Your decision to issue such a book is, in my judgment, both wise and opportune, and I believe that it will con- tribute much to the best interests of our women students, and thus to the interest of the college as a whole. During the first years after the admission of women as students, they were too few in number, and their own life as a body of students was too little developed, to justify the venture on which you have auspiciously embarked. But I have felt for a year or two that the step you have taken would be a wise one as soon as the women themselves were ready to take it. For the publication of a book so peculiarly representative of student interests must manifestly be undertaken on the students, own initiative. Now that you are ready to take that initiative, I welcome your publica- tion with the utmost corcliality. Like the women's class day, inaugurated so worthily last year, and the women's musical, dramatic and athletic organizations which have enjoyed a longer, though no more promising life, this new undertaking marks the gradual, and therefore stable and normal, development of independent student consciousness. This from the beginning it has been our desire to foster. In no way can the equality and naturalness of the status of the women in the college be more healthfully demonstrated and cultivated than by such developments in the expression of their college life by our women students. I wish your new venture the largest success in every way, for you are marking a path in which succeeding classes will Walk, and I look forward to reading the book with great interest. With great satisfaction in everything that makes for the growing rich- ness and significance of the college life of the women in Rochester, I am Your very sincere friend, RUsH R1-mes. CROCEUS 35 The Alumnae Association of the University of Rochester A . .. F l ,T . , V W . .lr E251 , V, .,, f , ,l asm., , J In the late summer of 1905 some of the alumnae of the university thought their number sufficient to warrant the formation of a permanent organization H to promote the interests of the University of Rochester, and to maintain a spirit of fellowship among its alumnaef' ln the autumn of the same year the organization was perfected with Miss Evelyn 0'Connor as president. As is customary in such organizations, membership consists of active members, those who have taken a First or second degree: and of associate members, those who have completed at least one year of college work. The association has met twice each year: once during an afternoon or evening of the Christmas recess, and once for supper during commence- ment week. At the June meeting the women of the graduating class are the guests of honor. These reunions are characterized by a spirit of friendliness, informality, and good cheer, which serves, as nothing else can, to bring to the members a realization of the sense of union which is binding them more closely than ever before to each other and to the institution of which they form an integral part. D Ever since the death of Miss Anthony, the moving spirit of coeducation at Rochester, the alumnae have wished to do all in their power to aid- toward the erection of a memorial building in her honor.

SENIOR HISTORY To forestall any possible prospective misapprehension as to our iden- tity, permit me to announce at the very outset that we are THE. SENIORS. Of course we have always been TI-IE classg but it has taken us three glorious years to acquire the senior part. Now we stand at the top, the cynosure of undergrad eyes, the example of wisdom and all that may be added unto it. Qur history may be summed up in three chapters, headed respectively by the three words of Caesar's famous telegram. To give a detailed account of why we came, what we saw, and how we conquered, would necessitate the publication of a second volume of the Croceus. Suffice it then to give a few hints to the uninformed. . In the first place, about the middle of the year l905 we began to realize that Rochester needed US, just US, and so we cheerfully gave up Wellesley and Vassar and Smith and came, twenty-five strong, to CROCEU5 49 --4-:inn share the results of Miss Anthony's work. It must be admitted that the Hrst day was at least strangeg but we were not long in adapting ourselves to our environment. From the very beginning our ability and unusual brightness were recognized by the upper class womeng and the sophomores wore long faces and held many meetings. And we? We also had meetingsg but our faces were far from long for we had met Sheddy. Besides we had ideas of our own. And when we put some of these ideas into effect on l-lallowe'en, the surprise of the sophs, only equalled by their dismay, showed us more plainly than words that we were masters of the situation. That was our first regular systematized effort and it established our fameg after that we never hesitated. Two other events especially mark our freshman year. One of these was the spread on freshman-sophomore day when the wily sophs possessed themselves of our pennants. With rare forethought, we of '09 became self-imposed and undesired guardians of the wraps of our foes, while we 'quickly manufactured extemporaneous pennants from calico. The other event mentioned was the banquet to which we forcibly invited a member of noughty-eight. Our sophomore year we continued as we had begun, laying our plans with originality, and executing them with ability. One proof of this was the way in which we, diminished to twenty-one, managed forty- eight freshmen. The consternation to them and amusement to us caused 50 CROCEUS A by the advance newspaper account of their banquet for the following afternoon, can only be appreciated by those who know. ln our junior year came the great question of publishing a year-book. The struggle was long and strenuous and was finally lost. Our num- bers had by this time shrunk to fifteen and it seemed unwise for so few to undertake such a responsibility. Our Aprilfool's party was only one of the many good times of the year that did not leave us time to be proverbially lovesick. And now we are on the last stretch. Looking back over it all, it does not seem long since we began, four years ago. For the most part we have been peaceful and most friendly. Our small number, becoming smaller every year, has drawn us very closely together. Most of us have worked hard to make our class the U bestf' We have always been the athletic classy and are active in dramatics and the glee club. It is also worthy of comment that.all but four of us are active members of the Y. W. C. A. ln short our activities extend in all directions. Cn the whole, our history is one of happiness and what seems to us to be glory. But one event has happened to cause us sadness - the loss of our dear sister just before her junior year. In such a case words are inadequate even if possible. ' At the close of our history it seems appropriate to express a feeling to which every girl in the class can say - as did the boy in the story - H Them is my sentimentsf' Our class is ours what e'er she be, The best of best to us is she. And praise of thee all tongues shall line, Thou dear old class of nineteen nine. CROCEUS SI Seniors l-lILDA FARRAR . . I0 Beckley St., Rochester, N. Y. Classical. Prepared at East High School.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY A' Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."- Twelflh Night. Greatness seems to have been the predominant characteristic of the class of l9l0 ever since its first day at the University of Rochester. Almost immediately upon our arrival at Anderson Hall on that first well remembered morning we were greeted with the exclamation, " Why ! what a large class you are I H This was quite unexpected and made us feel a little self-conscious like Alice in Wonderland about whom we had studied in high school. The magnitude of our class made itself more forcibly felt when we assembled in class rooms. There our greatness caused us to be numbered and filed while professors searched everywhere for more benches. Two days later we were calmly informed by the powers that be that we could clean the girls' rooms during the longest term of the year because 62 CROCEUS our class was so large. This characteristic was not proving to be an unalloyed joy. Qur greatness, however, did not prevent the other classes from enter- taining us lavishly and we were feted and feasted until we took it as a matter of course. One of the most memorable and enjoyable events of our freshman year was the l-lallowe'en party given in our honor by the class of l909. We had such a good time that we decided to follow the example set by our elders, so, as the one thing most suited to our years we gave a baby party to our sophomore sisters. Our next achievement was our freshman banquet. We made secret and mysterious plans but somehow the sophomores suspected and put a large placard in the parlor, announcing the supposed place and date. They likewise gave each of us a pasteboard world, symbolic of the importance and size of our class. Their placard informed us that we were going to have the banquet at the Samovar. This was news to us, so a number of us went to the Samovar that afternoon and inquired but received very unsatisfactory answers. Behold, the papers the next morning, to the great surprise of the sophomores, announced in large headlines, H Bunches of Sophomores Patrol Samovar ! Ask Questions in Vain of Wary lVlatron.H Thus we guilelessly turned the tables on them. A short turn in the cycle of time and we found ourselves sophomores. It gives one a strange, uncanny feeling to be a sophomore. Every time a person mentioned the word U freshmanf' we started guiltily. Gradu- ally, however, we realized that the incoming class had usurped our place although they could not begin to fill it because they were not so large a class as we had been. They planned to have a spread one day and left their fat, tempting parcels in their lockers. We, contrary to our custom, happened to be hungry and appropriated the aforesaid parcels. Their sandwiches and cake were very good and we commended among ourselves the care and time they had evidently spent on them. To our surprise the freshmen objected loudly to our taking their provisions and declared emphatically that they would never do anything like that when they became sophomores. Ye freshmen of l9l2, take notice and recall how well they carried out this vow. During our second year our class continued to bear the brunt of college duties, as we had done throughout our freshman year. Our size had not diminished. We had a sophomore banquet because it was the proper thing to do, not because we needed anything extra to eat, for did'nt we CROCEUS 63 have Y. W. C. A. lunches every noon? The banquet passed off quietly and peacefully while the freshmen were in bed. Of course the freshmen had to follow our illustrious example and they, too, had a banquet. We knew all about the date and details but we didn,t annoy them for fear they would become discouraged. l-lowever it is not a wise thing to allow young people too much liberty. Elated at their success, the freshmen looked about for more worlds to conquer. The result of their planning was a challenge to us, the sopho- mores, to a debate. Really now this was going too far. We didn't care much for debating ourselves, its too much work, but we accepted, wonder- ing why the freshmen wished to put themselves to so much trouble. Thereupon we proceeded to forget all about the matter till one day when all the classes were present at a party. Une of the freshmen arose, told about the coming debate remarking that the freshmen U boldly H challenged and the sophomores H rashly " accepted and urged all to attend. This was the last straw. For the good of the college we would have to teach those freshmen their place. On a boiling hot day in June we beat them to such a degree that they haven't mentioned debating since.' Let this be a lesson to all future freshmen. When you have an attack of extreme self-importance, don't try to take it out on the sopho- mores. At the beginning of our third year we found that many of our members had dropped out or gone to other colleges. Only exceptional people can bear the mingled responsibility and honor of being in such an illustrious class for two years and not require a rest or change to another college. We, who remained, hoped that no unexpected duty would fall on our devoted shoulders and that for one year we might have a rest. Qur dream Was rudely shattered. We were informed that the needs of the college required us to start a girls' book because we were so - here we shuddered - large, that we could well undertake the task. Did anyone ever know us to shirk our duty ? We responded, without hesitation in spite of the labor involved and THE CROCEUS, the result of our latest efforts, witnesses the close of our Junior year.

CROCEUS 77 FAKE BANQUET roouin son-is 1-...........,-..... Freshman Girls of University Outwitted Tormentors. PLOTTINGS' FELL THROUGH P-ostponement of Banquet Rendered Gifts and "Stunts" of Sophomore Class Untlmely. .111-...-...l- A deep sleep fell upon the girls of the sophomore, class of the University of Rochester- Wednesday, and it was not until 9 ofcloek last night that 'the soporiiic Wore off and they awoke to Gnd that the banquet of' the freshmen class had not been held, and that all the amusement they had promised them- selves hadrvanished as a dream In the "cold gray dawn of the morning after." The freshmen had postponed their ban- quot. It had originally been planned to hold the annual event late yesterday after- noon, but, suspedting' that the "sophs" had learned 'of their plans, it was de- cided Monday to postpone lt. The sophomores energetic and Worldwise with' their two years of experience, sixty planned several coupe upon their fresh- men associates. All yesterday afternoon groups of three or four sophomore girls could have been seen slowly promenadingi up and down the .park in front of the Samovar in Clinton Avenue South, where the ban- quet was supposed to have been held. As they grew tired. they sat on the steps of the Lincoln Monument, or were re- lieved by another relay. The shades .in the club house had been closely drawn since morning, and as night drew on the whole placed was transformed into ablaze of light, but with all this ostensible display, no one had been seen to en-ter or 'leave the house except certain inquiring sophomores' who tried to gain knowledge by inquiries. The silence of absence reigned, against the curtains no flitting shadows were seen, and about 9 o'clook someone, some- where, somehow, "tumbled," or rather it was so slow that it might more prop- erly be termed a filtering processg a messenger hurried breathlessly up to the watchers, whispered the alarming intelli- gence, and then all slipped quietly away. Planned Funny "Stunts." Wlieii the sophomores had first learned Of the supposed date andeplace they got their heads together, wrote a report of the banquet and gave it to the news- papers to be published a day ahead' of time. Noi' was this. the only Way in which the clever lurninosity of the sophomore girls or-:pressed itself. At the latest class meeting., pennies had been collected, and a committee appointed to invest it wisely in some mementos for the "frosh." This they did, and late yesterday after- noon, when the banquet was thought to be at its height, a dray drove pre- tentiously up to the Samovar, and two men laboriously carried in a large- Omer cial looking drygoods- box marked for ,the president of the class. Wlieii opened last night it was found to contain ,large hollow balls which had ax-ubberstrirlg for bounding attached. Maps of the world 'decorated 'these balls, and 'it 'is doubtless that the freshmen girls will .feel highly pleased when chairman of the arrange- ment committee, ,Miss Margaret H. Le Sour, distributes these individual tokens ln collegeihis morning. 78 CROCEU5 Freshmen Banquet of the Class of 1910 At the Samovar, April Twenty-Third, Nineteen l-lundred Seven Toastmistress .............

Each shaking frosh was blind- folded, and then pushed stumbling up the steps by ghostly hands none too gentle. This was only the beginning of their troubles. They were led from the house to the barn through a drizzle that thoroughly dampened their spirits, and sent horrible chills over them, as the ghost piloted them around mudpuddles. Into a hallway, and up a steep ladder, poke by poke, till they tumbled on the floor of the Hall of Justice! Accusations that would daze a hardened criminal were hurled at the unsophisticated freshmen by black- robed judges, and penalties were inflicted that would cause Sing Singis star boarder to tremble. Then there was a scare! The ghost fortune teller upset her alcohol stove, and a confiagration threatened, until the tub, into which the victims bobbed for apples, was brought to the rescue. The blaze gave a last spiteful hiss and went out, and the real live Teddy Bear danced happily in the light of the Jack-o-lantern's smile. There were three fortune tellers, and no two told the same things, but what of it, after the freshman had kissed the Blarney Stone, been chased around by a fiery red devil with a pitchfork, and eaten H worms H ? And then for the last scene that H ends this strange eventful historyf, In a still cold room, dimly lighted by some unearthly light falcohol and salt, 1 suspectj they beheld a form lying white and still in death. If only the corpse could have kept her face straight! The call to the M eats H put an end to the horrors, and the freshmen settled down joyfully over the inviting yellow lunch baskets. 80 CROCEUS The Six O'Clock Breakfast What meant it that throughout the city of Rochester, in the cold gray dawn of the morning, sixty-three alarm clocks were ringing, and sixty-three girls were groaning to think that it was up to them to get up? The class of l9l0, then sophomores, wanted to entertain the seniors. Yes, really wanted to, although it was also customary to do so, for this was the class which, only the year before, had helped them through their period of freshmanic doubt and distress. Plan after plan was discussed and rejected, until Ruth Gilmore proposed the Hstuntyn idea of giving the seniors a six-of-clock breakfast. After the idea had been sufficiently ridiculed by the humorists of the class, it was adopted, and Highland Park was chosen as the site of the banquet- as the season was H in wunderschonem Monat lVlai.H I am afraid that in the few dismal moments when 'we were summon- ing all our energies to the task of getting up, a six-ol-clock breakfast seemed to have lost its attractiveness. And the seniors groaned, and wished that the sophs hadn't tried to be quite so original. But, with grim determination, they one and all stole out of their houses and forth upon the deserted streets. Of course we had to wait H perfect ages H for a car, and stand on the corner mourning over the extra half hour that might have been spent in bed. When one frnally appeared, the conductor and the few passengers stared, as if we were walking in our sleep. When at length we arrived at l-lighland Park we found the tables spread with a most tempting array - the work of the faithful committee, who rose at three oiclock. A sleepy looking boy brought the coffee in a double boiler- the double arrangement seemed necessary, for indi- cations were that the coffee would have to wait a while. Gradually sleepy, tired-looking individuals began to arrive. And, behold! Marion Taylor for once was on time. We were half through breakfast when we heard a shout, and up rushed Margaret Le Seur. The sun came up, the faint breeze stirred the trees, and brought us the delicate fragance of lilacs. The sparkling dew-drops and the blend- ing shades of the flowers drove away all lamentations over lost sleep, and all anxiety over eight-flfteens. But the best of times must end, and with a last lingering look we resigned ourselves to the cruel fate which decreed that we must spend all the glorious spring days within the confines of the university.

Ye Chronicle of Ye Sophomores Ye class of nineteen hundred eleven did take up its abode in ye University of Rochester on ye seventeenth day of September in ye year of our Lord nineteen hundred seven. From far and near ye studious and aspiring maidens did assemble, from Charlotte, from Brighton, from Henrietta, from ye Flower City and from ye distant stations on ye Rochester and Eastern line. Ye members of ye class did meet in council and by consent of all did agree that in ye year nineteen hundred eleven their minds would contain all ye lore obtainable in ye university, and did fix upon that year as ye year of their graduation. Therefore will ye year nineteen hundred eleven be writ large in ye annals of history. At lirst ye name "freshman H was applied to ye class. This ye maidens did consider unfit and ridiculous, but, in a spirit of peace did sub- mit thereto. Ye class did hold various U spreads U whereat ye maidens did relax from labor and partake of food other than intellectual. On CROCEUS 85 ye occasion of ye first U spread U ye bitter enemies of ye class, namely ye class of nineteen hundred ten, in envy did try to deprive ye maidens of their feast. But ye right did win and ye oppressed did conquer ye oppressors. Ye class did also hold a banquet. Ye rivals did again seek to molest themg but ye class did teach them a lesson and did let them know naught of ye banquet until ye feast was over. Then when ye class of nineteen hundred ten did have a banquet ye Righteous Class did heap ye coals of hre on ye rivals' heads and did let them feast in peace. ln ye month of June ye class did ente1'tain all ye other maidens of ye college at ye home of ye Warrants in ye busy town of Brighton. Ye tale of this event is given elsewhere in this book. Ye first womenis debating society of ye university was organized by ye class of nineteen hundred eleven and ye class did challenge ye rivals to debate. Since ye class did challenge it seemed good that they should in courtesy give ye victory to ye rivals. At length ye college did realize ye absurdity of calling ye class H freshman H and did designate it as ye sophomore class. Now ye Righteous Class hath forgiven all ye slights and annoyances of ye class of nineteen hundred ten and doth center its attention on ye present fresh- man class. At ye solemn festival held in ye town of Pittsford on ye night of I-lalloweien ye class did teach ye young freshmen ye respect due to ye sophomores and ye dignity of ye class of ninteen hundred eleven. x CROCEUS 87 The Sophomore Class MARGARET FITCH BARSS, Cl., 70 Meigs St., Rochester.

Come May 2311, come at three olcloclc sharp, ln the great town of Brighton you'll all have a lark. If it shines it won't hurt you, if it rains it won't wet you. Come, sport until seven, if your mammas will let you. Such were the naive missives which the class of l9ll distributed among the girls one morning last May, causing curiosity and pleasurable anticipation. CROCEU5 89 The freshmen promised a lark and they kept their promise. At three oiclock the I9I l girls in white dresses with bright green shoulder bands and crepe paper mortar-boards adorned with green tassels greeted the first arrivals at the Warrant home. Each guest on arriving was adorned with a college cap, with tassel and shoulder band, red, purple, or black according to her class. Festivities began with a May-pole dance on the lawn. A number of l9I I girls participated, weaving in and out the yellow and black streamers, in time to music. The entertainment which was planned took the form of an interclass meet, and the next hour was taken up with races and contests. Nearly all the prizes passed to the freshmen. The standing broad grin prize hovered impartially between a senior and a freshman, until the latter fwe will spare her namely by a mighty effort succeeded in extending her beaming smile still further. The next prize - for the most graceful walker- passed over to the sophomores, when Frances Angevine out- stepped all rivals - to the tune of the wedding march! An elaborate supper was served on the lawn. Our one regret was that it was so abundant that the next day pedestrians on the Brighton road were regaled by what we were forced to leave behind. When the company broke up at dusk, a vote of thanks was awarded to the freshmen for giving all the girls such an enjoyable time, and estab- lishing so commendable a precedent. CROCEUS I , Ti' 'J ng.

I9 I 2 CLASS HISTORY From the first day that the girls of 1912 entered upon college life, they were heartily approved of. It was impossible that things should have been otherwise, for were we not the most promising freshman class that Rochester University had ever received into her embrace? And has she been disappointed since that day? No. That we were wholly acceptable to the girls of the other classes, was clearly shown by our reception. They deemed us worthy to be instructed in the things which they considered essential to success in life. And so on the first Saturday after we had become college students we were given a lesson in geography, beginning in our own Empire State. With such swiftness did we learn, that but one lesson was necessary in this subject. Then began our business education. The Y. W. C A. girls kindly undertook to show us how to conduct that most important CROCEU5 93 mode of carrying on sales - the auction. The junior girls came next in offering their assistance. Wishing to test our mental capacity, they gave us nuts to crack. Thus discovering that we were deserving of their aid, our sister class gave us a lesson in the art of poetry writing, thereby bringing to light our Shaksperean and Tennysonian powers. The jeal- ous sophomores, wishing to undo all the good work which had been done for us, led us on l-lallowe'en into the land of ghosts and spirits, but fortunately no harm came to us. We have not been here long enough to have had many social affairs of our own, but we have indulged in a- spread. Dr. l-lavens generously granted us the use of his office as a banquet hall, and there, laying aside all formality, we spent a most delightful hour. Among the members of our class are students interested in athletics and those fond of dramatic work. We have a good representation on the roll of the Y. W. A. But we have also that which is necessary for every successful class, a desire for education, and an interest in the work of the class room. Modesty will not permit us to say more, but if you ask some one who knows what the girls of 1912 stand for, you will undoubtedly receive an answer which will reflect upon us more glory than we dare give ourselves, lest we appear conceited. But in later years when the members of our freshman class shall have lost their irresistible giggles, when care and sorrow shall have placed their mark upon the brows of some of us, we shall still look back with joy and pride upon our first year in Rochester college. w I K i CROCEUS 95 The Freshman Class MARGARET WINIFRED ALLAN, Ph., 33 Rosedale St., Rochester.

This year the Athletic and Students' Associations were united as the two seemed inclissolubly connected. The Association is the cogent force which at the same time manifests and controls all the activities of the women in the University.

E2 5 Silver Bay is very clear to the university girls of Rochester and well it may be for to her we owe the very existence of our college branch of the great American Y. W. C. A. In the summer of i904 Jane Crowe, '05 visited Silver Bay with a delegation of Mt. Holyoke girls and while there became convinced that Rochester ought to have her share in the work. l-ler enthusiasm spread to the girls and accordingly during the next fall term preparations were made for forming a Young Women's Christian Association. On Janu- ary ZO, l905, the constitution was adopted by the eighteen charter members and Helen Thomas was elected president. From this beginning the society has gradually grown in membership each year until now seventy-five of the one hundred and twenty-one girls in college have identihed themselves with it. The object of the Y. W. C. A. is the development of Christian character among its members and the prosecution of active Christian work particularly among the young women of the college. Devotional meetings are held each Tuesday at l :l5 in the girls' parlor. In connec- tion with the regular work of the association and under the direction of its committees mission study classes are carried on which do much to broaden the Christian outlook of the girls. Some of these classes are led by students of the Theological Seminaryg one class which has proved very delightful meets once a week at the home of Mrs. Caroline Atwater Mason to study "Missions in the Far East." Bible classes also form a vital part of the Y. W. C. A. work. Two or three classes are conducted throughout the year, generally under the direction of student or alumnae leaders. Miss Drake of the city Y. W. C. A. gave an interesting study in the Gospel of John. Recently a new department has been added - that of city missions. In undertaking this work it is our purpose to exercise the true missionary spirit in the city which is temporarily our home, seeking out those who I ri ll-4 CROCEUS are needy and helping in whatever way we can. At Thanksgiving and Christmas time we provided dinners for a few families, thus trying to give them a little of the season's good cheer. We have been fortunate this year in having Miss Helen Green, state student secretary, with us on several occasions. She has been an inspira- tion to us, giving us new ideas for work and showing us the example of a beautiful Christian character. Very interesting and helpful in our Y. W. C. A. work is the student conference which is held each June at Silver Bay, Lake George. Located in one of the most beautiful spots in New York State it is an ideal place for a conference of Christian students. During the three summers that we have been organized twenty-five of our girls have been to Silver Bay and present prospects point toward a large delegation this year. Any article on Rochester Y. W. C. A.: work would be incomplete without mention of the dainty lunches served each noon by Miss Hoyt of Mechanics Institute. The Y. W. C. A. also has its social side. It gives a reception to the freshmen during the first week of the college year and soon after this comes the Silver Bay spread with its many H goodies " and glowing accounts of the summer conference. Last spring we held a county fair which was so original and so successful that it was repeated at the city branch of the Y. W. C. A. The week beginning January I6, l909, was known in college circles as H Y. W. C. A. weekf, It opened with a reception given on Satur- day in honor of Miss Green. The devotional service, Tuesday, which was led by the student secretary was largely attended. Cn Wednesday, January 20, the association celebrated its fourth birthday with proper festivities. Thursday the cabinet held its regular meeting and the following day occurred the annual business meetingifor the election of officers for the coming year. As we enter upon the fifth year of our life let us make it 'the richest one of all, ever keeping before us the perfect example of Christ our Lord and teacher.

At present we have the tennis court, and the Y. W. C. A. gymnasium is at our disposal, but as the use of them is entirely optional, their devotees are few. The Y. W. C. A. instructors accord us the kindest treatment, but only a very small proportion of the college girls are gym girls. Under such conditions a basket ball team has been maintained for the last six years. Its present organization is - Laura Lawless, forward. Marion Meulendyke, captain. Esther Nairn, center. Helen Raynsford, center. Edna Parker, guard. Blanche Corcoran, guard. Margaret l..eSeur, manager. Assistant Managers, Hazel Chapman, Annie Fowler.

So most of us attach ourselves to the particular branches of work or play that interest us most. In fact most of us are hobbyists. Those who have the athletic hobby are generous enough to share it with everyone else. So it was that in i904 the members of the athletic association devised a plan for inducing more girls to join the gym class. Each gym girl invited some other college girl to go down to the U Y H for a good time. l-land in hand, they all recited in chorus - "Backward, turn backward, oh, time, in thy flight! Make me a child again just for tonight." And immediately they were transformed into children, and spent the rest of the evening indulging in pastimes H suitable to their age." This frolic was christened H the gym stuntf' and was voted so successful that it was repeated in the spring of the next year. But this time the children were a little older, and they decided that they would like to dance. Since that time the gym stunt has been considered one of the events of the year. Many and varied are the costumes worn at the stunts - from Buster Brown and his sister to Spanish cavaliers, and stately dames and gentlemen of the olden time. During the evening a grand promenade is held, and the judges award prizes to the handsomest and the funniest couples. The corners of the gym are usually occupied by booths deco- rated with the different class colors, and the room assumes a very festive air. l-leretofore the stunt has been in charge of the vice president of the athletic association, but since the athletic work is now under the auspices of the students' association, the affair will probably be in the future in the hands of the gymnasium class. ,Xjna gay ff 3 ,fs az Q X 650 119 49 xl! .Q ULMWFQTH EED I ' X 17 0 J' A N iguj f iv H Q47 X N Ln 3 5 fx 1 .

Secretary, Helen Raynsford. Treasurer, Gertrude Sheehan. It was the interest of some of the girls in college in the equal suffrage movement and the fact that it had been the ideal and life-work of Miss Anthony that led to the formation of a College Equal Suffrage Club. Through the kindness of Mrs. William C. Gannett, Miss Caroline Lexow, herself a graduate of Barnard, president of the New York State College Equal Suffrage League, was invited to speak to the girls of the university. Miss Lexow stopped on her way to the national suffrage convention and gave' a talk in the girls' rooms, October l2, 1908, on H The Practical Reasons for Equal Suffragef' Her enthusiasm and personality influenced many of the anti-suffragists to a toleration, at least, of the subject. Cn October 23, after the national convention at Buffalo, N. Y., Misses Rendell and Costello, graduates of Newham College, Cambridge, England, spoke briefly and interestingly to the girls in the chapel, on the suffragette movement in their country. Their naive descriptions and humor were highly appreciated. Though the number of girls interested was small, a club was organized and officially allied with the New York State College Equal Suffrage League upon the adoption of a constitution in a meeting held January I4, l909. The club is composed of active and associate members, the signed adherents of the movement, and the girls who are interested in learning its principles. The plan of work proposed is first, a study of the practical aims of the equal suffrage, and second, a study of the position of woman in former times and its effect upon the present situation.

Qua, MEMBERS CROCEU5 IZ9 Friday Sings In the spring of 1900 in Professor Shedd's class-room, directly follow- ing an eleven-thirty class, was held the original Friday sing. It lasted only fifteen minutes because there were only four songs to sing, and each of those was sung twice. For a year these sings were held in a class- room and then some one suggested that the chapel would be a suitable place for the singing of college songs. Thither went the faithful songsters and not content with merely singing songs, they set about to write them, with the result that in l906 there was issued a little yellow book contain- ing H Some Songs We Sing at Rochester." There were three revisions of this book of songs, all however, with words only. It remained for the class of l908 as the final note of four years of harmony to publish the words and music of forty-five Rochester songsq These books were sold at a very moderate price and besides that, U l908 H furnished copies for use at the Friday sings. Thus it comes about that in the present day when, on Friday at l2:30, we want to sing college songs we have merely to go up to chapel or out by the Anderson statue in the l30 CROCEUS summer months. There we have an orchestra to accompany us, a student leader to encourage, and a kind friend to offer a book with the words and music. Professor Shedd, who led the singing for six years, has written many popular college songs to familiar tunes. Dr. Slater, also, has given very generously of his musical ability and has composed the music and written the words to four splendid Rochester songs. President Rhees believes that college songs are the best evidence of college spirit. If this seems so to us, let us help to make the Friday sings worth while. If we cannot write a song, and many of us could write a good one, let us at least try to sing them. Many a long day after we have forgotten why two sides of a triangle are greater than the third, or of just what elements the feudal system was composed, the words of an old U. of R. song will recur to us, and We shall remember where we sang it. Anyway, let's all stand up and sing U The Geneseef, CROCEUS 131 The Bean Fest For a time the frugal co-ed brought with her, every morning, a package containing sustenance for the day. But not being affiliated with l-luck. Finn, the mingling of Havors soon rendered this system obnoxious. Then for a season she sought the festive bean and discreet bisque in the purlieus of East High. This satisfied her longings until a certain sameness began to pall and she loathed hash and macaroni and cocoa and entertained deep suspicion as to the ingredients of her diet. What might not lie concealed beneath the opaqueness of the cocoa? Who knew why hash was served on Friday? What became of the doughnuts not sold? Of the milk H from tuberculin-tested cows N ? And so on, ad infinitum. She grew morbid - and thus arose the Bean Fest. The Bean Fest is a lunch club at which endless variety of menu and deep Congeniality prevail. Its system is simple- one member plans a menu and each of the six members brings one item from home and thus dinner is served. This sounds commonplace, but it has its elements of humor. Fancy carrying a hot apple-pie in a crowded street car and trying to look unconscious while every soul on board' sniffs inquiringly and eyes your package suspiciously, for Edison himself couldn't make a hot pie look like a box of Whittle,s. Then there are other things to contend with. To leave butter in a coat pocket and hang the coat on the radiator is unwise. To tie a globular package with anything but a rubber band demands the craft of Ulysses - for the string will come off, and there is your contribution, a can of soup, say, exposed to the public view. The doom which descends, upon any member who neglects her sacred duty is so terrible that a B. F. was once moved to look pale and leave Prof. M - 's class that she might put the potatoes on to boil. When once the jovial Bean Festers are gathered together and the process of' getting luncheon is under way, the ceremony is a very effective course in domestic science-for what one doesn't know is forcibly impressed on her by her confreres. ln its palmy days, the Bean Fest had six members and two boarders and table talk ranged over the universe with a little intensive work on this particular section of the cosmos. That was the place to discuss current topics. There we refreshed body and soul with goodies and gossip. In those days we entertained with all hospitality, and now that better provision for the co-eds, luncheon has been made, the Bean Fest will live only as one of our most pleasant memories. Class Day - 1 908 The girls' first Class Day ! The senior girls of l908 felt the honor of Dr. Rhees' suggestion, and tried to carry out his plan with appropriate dignity and beauty. When the day dawned, gray and cold and rainy, the class realized that the elaboratevpreparations for exercises on the campus must be cancelled, and the scene of action transferred to the college chapel, which, in an incredibly short time, was beautifully decorated with flags and huge pots of daisies. By half past ten, when the numerous friends and relatives were assembled, no one could have guessed how impromptu the setting was. To the strains of the commencement hymn - H O Mater Academ- ica " - sixteen sophomores in white marched down the side aisles carrying arches of myrtle and daisies. Then, halting, they allowed the seniors, in cap and gown, to pass beneath the arches and seat themselves on the platform. The order of exercises was simple and impressiveg the class statistics laid bare many unique and interesting facts, and if the burning of the class history, after it was heard, over a ewer of coals, was somewhat saddening, the prophecy quite altered that mood, and the magnanimous class will capped the climax with its generosity ! After the stately and measured class poem, the seniors and arch-bearers preceded the audience to a spot on the campus near the Eastman Laboratory, where ivy was planted, and the ivy oration delivered. The senior song, dedicated to the class of l908 by Dr. Slater, was then sung by the class, and the exercises were ended by the singing of the alma mater, in which all joined. If it was not as romantically scenic as the class had felt that campus surroundings and a glorious June day would make it, all agreed that it CROCEUS 133 was a remarkably simple and attractive event, - never to be forgotten by the college, for it was the first of its kinclg never to be forgotten by the class, for it was their thought macle actual and beautiful.

On the last day of the term the class went to lronclequoit, and selected a place where a beautiful grove furnished a suitable setting. The spectators were seated on a gently sloping hill, at the foot of which a level stretch of green served as a stage. The only character portrayed on this occasion was lphigenia, the Greek maiden. The part was taken by Ethel Pickard in the first scene, Elizabeth Foulds in the second, and Ruth Gilmore in the third, all of whom wore ancient Greek costumes. The lines were given in the original Greek, and throughout an attempt was made to preserve the atmosphere of the Greek drama. " Comus " For a few weeks before December 9, H Comus H was a nightmare to some, at least, of those responsible for its success. Now it has become a midwinter nightis dream of beauty, fading away into dim and delightful illusion. People differ in their power to forget the drudgery and the blunders of such an undertaking, and to transfigure its moments of enchantment. Of course our "Comus H might be written up as a commonplace incident of the college year, rehearsed in alternate weariness and wild mirth, performed in anxious trepidation, praised in the morning and forgotten at night. It was something more than that to those who found themselves mastered by the sheer magic of lVlilton's verse and the haunting quaint music of " Sweet Echo H and Sabrinais song. We laughed at ourselves and at everybody else when the rehearsals bridged the gap between the sublime and the ridiculous. Some were moved to mild imprecations when the H magic spell H powder failed to ignite in Boss's carefully prepared electric spark. The lion that insisted on wearing his face crooked, though he made the unskilful laugh, could not but make the judicious grieve. And yet that which might easily have 138 CROCEUS become a farce was held, when the hour came, up to the high level of all sincere and humble endeavor in art. This was brought about chiefly by the untiring efforts of Professor Frazier and the hard work of the principal members of the cast. It was The Lady who made H Comus " possible. Her unfailing good nature, her sympathetic rendering of the lines, her singing of old Henry Lawes's song, inspired all others to do their best. She and the Attendant Spirit may be said to have had the most difficult parts and to have filled them most adequately, and in each case at the cost of much labor known to few. One may say so much as this in simple. justice to the two who had between them more than half the lines of the mask. Commenda- tion must also be given to Comus himself for a very realistic rendering of the part of the enchanter, to the brothers, the nymphs, and all others who made up the twenty-one members of the cast. This student performance organized by the English department was presented as an enlarged and improved example of the work done in the English class-rooms for years in the interpretative reading of English dramas. That it was given on a stage and with the addition of costume and scenery was due to the unique anniversary occasion and to the desire of the public to see the mask. While it is not likely that such co-operation of the men and women in dramatics will be soon again attempted, because the occasion is not likely to arise, it has become evident that the dramatic ability among the college women should find increased expression. The alumnae performance of H Loveis l..abor's Lost H last June and the women's work in H Comus H show that something more should be attempted than the informal farces hitherto presented. No reason is evident why the women might not occasionally, before a select audience, give "A Midsummer Night's Dream " or a Yeats or Maeterlinck poetic drama. The labor involved in preparation, while it does not directly count on oneis college record, is really more profoundly cultural, more truly worth while, than many kinds of classroom discipline.

A faint blue mist Rose from the Genesee, and draped its banks In dreamy haze. Swiftly the twilight came, Then dim white starlight of the moonless night. Before me, as I wandered listlessly, The white trail glimmered, winding midst the trees, The drooping willows in the mystic light Gleamecl weird and ghostly, in fantastic shapes, And beckoned, swaying in the frtful breeze. And lo, strange figures slipped from out the mist, Ghosts of the past, long dead, and down the trail They stole with noiseless moccasins, and passed In strangepprocession. Awed I gazed, wide-eyed And watched them vanish in the thickening gloom. Out of the depths of ages past they came, These painted warriors with feathered crests, And glistening tomahawks. From far away The falls' low murmur Hoated to my ears, And clown the dim trail passed the silent file. The whispering poplar branches breathed farewell And all the forest thrilled with vague regret.

Excitement, anticipation-what it was he did not know. It was foolish, he knew, to let himself go this way - to let this strange hallucination get such a grip on him. Merton, to whom he had confided it-a little of it-had advised him to see Peterson, the famous nerve specialist. But he had laughed at the suggestion. Cranshaw, with his powerful vigorous figure, certainly did not look much like a sufferer from nerves-or any other disorder. Besides, he was not entirely sure that he really cared to be cured. It was, at least, a divine delusion! I-le lay perfectly still. The room was- in total darkness, save where a solitary shaft of pale moonlight, falling on some object on the dresser, made a faint sparkle. Cranshaw fixed his eyes steadily on the tiny point of light, and waited. Breathless and motionless he watched it. But for a minute nothing happened. l-lis very impatience, his palpitating eagerness seemed to prevent the coming of the miracle for which he waited. A sickening feeling of disappointment came over him. Oh! At last! The familiar feeling of space suddenly opening around him, of cool rushing darkness, of whirling dizziness! Then a faint dull shock, and a second's space before he could quite collect his scattered senses. He was there! The long dim avenue stretched far before him--a narrow path bordered by gigantic poplars. They loomed in slender symmetry far overhead toward the dark night sky. The trees were so close together that they seemed to form two long walls hedging in an enclosure of green gloom. There was moonlight outside the avenue. It gleamed like silver on the glossy, rustling poplar leaves, and he could almost imagine their branches covered with tiny white blossoms. It sifted between the quivering leaves, and fell in restless patches and spatters of brightness on the smooth walk. But he could see no one the whole length of the long dim road. A numbing fear seized him, and he hastened breathlessly along. Last 146 CROCEUS night he had met her at the very beginning of the avenue. Sometimes he had found her halfway down. The air was cool with a certain sting in it. It fanned his feverish cheeks as he hurried along. The road seemed interminable. Finally he reached the curiously carved stone bench with dragons creeping up the sides, where they had sat the night before. In the scores of times he had been here he had never passed beyond this point. But still she did not come! l-le strained his eyes to catch the first glimpse of her appearing in the distance- her tall figure, with her wonderful slender grace so accentuated by her clinging trailing black garments. He half expected every shadow to take her form and advance to meet him. l-le had come to the end of the avenue. It opened on a great garden-court-a garden such as he had never seen before. Just before him a great fountain shimmered in the moonlight. The veil of sparkling water dropped musically on to the stones below. In the background rose terrace on terrace, smooth lawns and banks of Howering shrubbery, with long flights of marble steps gleaming dimly in the distance. The air was full of some peculiar spicy fragance. The strange beauty dazzled him - but all wonder and delight were choked with fear. What if she had not come - his Lady of the Poplars? Then suddenly he saw her. She was leaning against a quaint old Sundial, her gaze fixed on the shimmering water of the fountain. But she scarcely seemed herself - she who had always been a creature of shadowy darkness. Tonight she was all in whiteg as glistening as the poplar leaves in the moonlight. Over her cloudy black hair was a little scarf of filmy lace. l-ler beauty seemed the very essence of midnight and moonlight - of all things mysterious and intangible. With a little low mumur of joy he sprang towards her. But she held him off-her deep eyes full of nameless sorrow. They were strange eyes, that could be in turn cold steely gray, like the sea lashed by a storm, or softest pansy blue, or full of bewildering fire. But now they were dark with pain. The Dream Lady smiled a slow sad smile at the eager boyish joy in his face. Then with a quick impulsive gesture she threw off her gloom like a dark mantle. She let him draw her into his arms. H Comef, she whispered, H We will not spoil our last perfect hour with any unhappiness. It is the last time - forever, forever- unless perhaps in some other life we may find each other again. I could hardly come at all tonight, and I know it is the last timef' CROCEUS 147 lmperiously she checked the storm of inquiry and protest on his lips, slipped her hand in his, and led him over to the strangely carved seat by the sundial. They sat there in silence. The Dream Lady put her white arms around his neck and looked steadily into his eyes. And suddenly there came over him the knowledge, certain though unexplainable, that it was the last time. And he could only sit there dumbly. The low music of the fountain, the silver sheen of the moonlight, the spicy perfume wafted across the dim gardens-the breath of hundreds of unseen flowers, the white shimmer of her gown, the blue darkness of her eyes, the sweet sense of her nearness, all mingled in a dazing blur of impres- sions. Time passed unheeded. And then a noise broke in on them - a far-off sound of voices, of footsteps, of indolent silvery laughter. The Lady of the Poplars sprang up and slipped from his restraining arms. One second she stood with her eyes fixed on the long flights of gleaming marble steps. She seemed listening intently. Then she turned back, her face suddenly white and drawn. H Dearest," she breathed, H I must go - this very second! Good- bye - Ah! - H l-ler voice broke. She swayed a little. Cranshaw sprang towards her with a heart full of rebellion and determination. But she slipped away from him, eluded him. l-le saw her gleaming white dress flash among the shrubbery. The voices and footsteps were coming very near. l-le rushed blindly after her, nearly overtook her. She had darted down the avenue of poplars. He clutched desperately at the flying whiteness of her dress - but his hands closed over the cold, glossy poplar leaves. She was gone! The moonlight suddenly went out. In his ears was the thunder of rushing water. l-lis heart was beating wildly, tumultuously. Then all grew quiet. I-le found himself lying on the bed in his room. 'Everything was unchanged, except that the solitary bar of moonlight had moved across the dresser and fallen on the Hoor. Some- how Cranshaw seemed so utterly exhausted that he sank immediately into a dreamless sleep. In the dull chilling dawn he awoke, with a vague sense of misery and loneliness. For a second he groped blindly about in his mind for the cause of his wretcheclness. Then everything came back to him. He sat up, throwing back his broad shoulders, as if by the movement to free himself from this strange spiritual burden. Why should he I48 CROCEU5 let some mere dream, some waking vision get such a hold on him? l-lere he was, making himself profoundly miserable only because - suddenly he started violently. For all at once he realized that his clenched hands were full of crumpled poplar leaves! as as as af- as as as A Merton often worried that winter at the change that had come over Cranshaw. l-le was gloomy, taciturn, preoccupied - and he had nat- urally the frankest and cheeriest of dispositions. What was even more surprising, he seemed to have lost interest in his work. Merton and Cranshaw had gone together through college and technical school. At Princeton Cranshaw had been enthusiastically devoted to athletics. l-le had been noted for having the clearest common sense and one of the sanest, best balanced minds in his class. l-le had devoted himself since to his profession with his characteristic enthusiasm, and already was one of the most prominent of its younger members. l"le must have overworked, Merton decided. That was the only way to account for his falling a prey to such a strange obsession. For with perception, rather rare for him, Merton had concluded that the change in Cranshaw was somehow vaguely connected with his dreams. Perhaps he would have put it that the change and the dreams were attributable to the same source. If something wasn't done soon he would have a nervous breakdown. Once Merton had committed the blunder of asking him how the Poplar Lady was getting along. Cranshaw had been sitting at his desk staring gloomily at a pile of papers in front of him. A few sprays of poplar leaves in a slender vase on top of the desk had caught Merton's eye, and occasioned his careless inquiry. At the question Cranshaw sprang up impetuously and strode over to the window, standing there a few moments in silence. It dawned on Merton that the confidence imparted to him on a momentary impulse had not justilied him in what had evidently struck Cranshaw as a prying impertinence. l-le mumbled an apology. But perhaps he might be pardoned for feeling a sort of pity half mingled with contempt for his friend's strange state of mind. But this softened into anxiety as the winter went on, and Cranshaw's gloomy listlessness became habitual. ln January came a chance he had looked for. It was a flushed and excited Merton that bobbed into Cranshaw's office, fairly glowing with enthusiasm. l-le sank into the chair which Cranshaw proffered, and beamed at him. But he did not relieve himself of his weighty secret CROCEUS I49 immediately, for he was considering various modes of breaking it to Cranshaw so as to make a favorable impression. But it was so obvious that he had a secret to tell, and was fairly brimming over with it, that his chum grinned at him and advised him to come out with it. 'L Well, what do you say to a trip to Europe? H he blurted out excitedly. U l-luh? " inquired Cranshaw, intelligently. H Well, the firm thinks if we want to bid for the work on those German bridges somebody ought to be on the spot. The specifications are in Berlin. If we want to try for the job somebody has got to go. Well, l'm going, and someone else ought to go with me - ' consulting expert,' you see. Now this is the beauty of it-if we two went, and sailed in the spring, the deal could be out of the way in a few weeks, and once there we could take a vacation, and bang around Europe for a while. What do you think? " he asked anxiously. Somewhat to his surprise, Cranshaw fell into the plan immediately. He was really glad of the prospect of a complete change and a chance to arouse himself from his unhealthy ,mental condition. As Merton went on, expounding and elaborating his idea, punctuating his remarks by punching holes in Cranshaw's blotter with his pencil, he kindled with like enthusiasm. For the next few weeks they lived in a muddle of plans, specifications, and guide-books. It was in April that they sailed. as as as as as as as On a balmy June day the Wanderers found themselves in the capital of one of the minor German kingdoms. The city was in festival array. By night every part of the town glittered with lights and echoed with music and was thronged with crowds in gala attire. The Crown Prince had brought his bride home today. And the event was the occasion of a general festival. Good natured throngs jostled each other on the brilliantly lighted streets. The two Americans swung up the long avenue leading toward the palace, intensely enjoying the excitement. Cranshaw's vacation had done him a world of good. He was quite his own light-hearted careless self again. They had wandered around Germany for several weeks with a delightfully irresponsible feeling. Tonight they had started out to take in all that was going on - chiefly crowds and illuminations, and bands in the squares. Merton kept up a running fire of easy chatter as they walked aimlessly I5O CROCEUS along. Soon they found themselves caught in a tide of people sweeping up the slow incline to the great square in front of the royal palace. The great rambling old building sparkled with myriad lights. The crowd surged through the stately park in front of it. Merton made mischievous comments on everything and everybody. l-lis companion was enjoying the fun quite as keenly, though in a quieter way. Suddenly Cranshaw stopped, a peculiar expression on his face. A faint breeze, sweeping across the park from the royal gardens, had carried with it a strange spicy fragance. What was it? It troubled him strangely, stirring some forgotten pain. With a little start he realized. Everything came back to him suddenly - everything he had nearly succeeded in forgetting of late, since he had worn himself out trying to solve the mystery. Then there really was a Hower with such a perfume! But why should there not be? l-le slipped his hand inside his coat and felt under his fingers the crisp crumpling of dried poplar leaves. Merton had not noticed Cranshaw's silence. l-le caught his arm suddenly, and pointed toward the east end of the palace. H Look, Cran.! " he exclaimed, H the crowd is making for that east balcony!'s see what's doingf, Cranshaw let his excited friend pilot him through the throng. Crown princes' marriages and all that pertained thereto had lost all interest for him. To his intensely American ideas the fuss had seemed rather amusing before, but now it was merely an intolerable bore. l-le passively let himself go where Merton guided. l-lis thoughts were back in his Garden of Dreams, at the end of the Poplar Road-in the Garden that had breathed the same fragance suddenly wafted to him - here in this noisy crowded reality. l-le was looking into the deep eyes of the Lady of Dreams. 'L Wait 'til I ask this Dutchman what's going on," Merton shouted in his ear. l-le nabbed the man next to him in the the crowd, and began pouring out a volley of glib German. The big H Dutchman " informed him, none too graciously, that the Prince and Princess were to come out on the balcony, off the state ballroom. Merton suddenly made a dive. The crowd gave way a little, and he slowly wriggled through toward the front, Cranshaw following, more from fear of losing him in the crowd than from like curiosity. For a few minutes they were crushed in the thickest of the crowd. A few CROCEUS ISI breathless moments, and they had gained a clear space in front, just below the balcony. Merton was Hushed with his exertions, but beamed with delight. A wild cheer went up from the throng as two figures separated themselves from the brilliant company inside the great, wide-open doors. The fair-haired young prince, leading his bride by the hand, stepped out on the balcony, and bowed to his future subjects. The new princess inclined her head graciously. U She's a peach! " Merton remarked, emphatically. Cranshaw looked up. He felt his heart leap violently. One sec- ond's bewildering, torturing uncertainty, and then he was sure. It was she - his Lady of the Poplars. Almost at the same instant the Princess looked down directly at him where he stood just beneath her, the brilliant light falling full on his white tense face. For a second they looked straight into each otherls eyes. In that second the throng around him vanished utterly. For as he gazed into the darkness of her strange eyes he knew that she too - had dreamed. Horace: Odes I-Xl Seek not, O maiden, to know what fate the gods of Olympus Destine for me and thee, nor heed Babylonian juggling. Better it is by far to take thy lot as it cometh, Whether love hath decreed that thou shalt have many more winters, Or whether this is thy last, that now on Tyrrhenian seacoasts Breaks the force of the sea on the rocks that sternly oppose it. Do thou be wise, quaff the wine, and from too short an existence Cut off far-reaching hopes. Efen while we linger thus talking Envious time will have Hed.

CROCEU5 IS3 Brief ls it nearer to East High School from Anderson l-lall by University Ave. than it is by Main St? A INTRODUCTION I. - History of the Question. l. Since it is necessary for students of the University to journey to East High School for nutritive sustenance each day at noon, and since it is known that walking increases the apetite, for reasons of economy it is desirable to know exactly which of the two routes commonly traversed is shorter. 2. Since our hunger and thirst for knowledge is replaced at 12:30 by hunger for the Hbaleful bisque" and thirst for "milk from tuberculin tested cows," and we yearn to satisfy this physical craving with all ex- pedition, considerable discussion has arisen at the campus gate among parties of prospective feasters as to the relative pedometric distances of the two routes in question. II. - Mailer Waived. We can limit our argument somewhat by excluding all discussion as to 1 l. The size of the shoe or of the step of the pedestrian. 2. The length of time which has elapsed since her last meal. a. It is axiomatic that 8:l5's imply no breakfast, ancl consequently famine. IH. - Admissions of Both Sides Both affirmative and negative will agree that l . What you get is not worth the exertion, whichever way you go. 2. The existence of the two avenues of approach is an invention of the Evil One, since it excites discussion and bitterness of feeling. 3. That the distance from Anderson l-lall to the gate is constant, whichever course you pursue thereafter. IV. - Issues. l. Is it farther from the gate to University Ave. than it is to Main SL? 154 CROCEUS 2. Is it farther from Prince to Alexander on University than on Main? 3. ls it farther to the lunch room on Alexander from University than it is from Main? B BRIEF FOR THE AFFIRMATIVE I. - The theory that the University route is the shorter is sound. l. It can be proved shorter by Geometry. For Prince St. from the Campus gate to Main is a curved line, and from the gate to University is a straight line, and a straight line is shorter than a curved line of equal length. fEuclid, Prop. I., 2. The Girl's Entrance at E. l-l. S. is nearer to University Ave. than to Main St. fSee Architect's diagramsj. II. - In practice, it proves shorter. l. There are points of interest en route which make the journey less laborious. a. The President's I-louse is on the corner of University Ave. fSee'Rochester City Directory, see College Cataloguej b. The hot waffle wagon usually takes its stand nearer to University on Alexander, as does the peanut cart. c. While both routes present the temptation to cut and go home, there are fewer cars on the University than on the Main St. line. HI. - The results of taking the University Ave. route are beneficial. l. The sight of the site of our future dormitory inspires us to contrib- ute to the Dormitory Fund. 2. Shoe-leather is saved. 3. Walking on H University M Ave. promotes college spirit.

As he watched her leaning out of the second window of the rooming establish- ment next door, he thought he had never seen so lovely a face in all his twenty-three years. Despite the pile of books awaiting him, despite invitations of a most urgent nature to larks with H the fellows," in the face of all the attractions college could offer him, he spent every possible moment in writing sonnets on her separate features, lyrics on her hair, and he was plunging enthusiastically into an epic on her modest, yet withal aristocratic demeanor. But the ignorance of her name was a serious handicap. It was a source of no slight anxiety to Jack, and often after he had watched the second window for hours, a book on his knee that met with sad neglect, he would ruminate on her name. U It canst be Beatrice, shels too fair, too spirituelle for lsabel. Too intellectual for Edna, Pearl, or Ethel. She is pure enough for Ruth, but that's too simple for such a magnificent little woman. Now l have it! l read a story in Century once about a man who traced his love over all the world by means of a little melody. Music would be the ideal approach. All the pretty names have songs written about them, and when I pour out my soul in the rights one, there canlt but be a response. l-ler beautiful face says that she is highly sensitive to all forces. It simply must succeedf' The beginning was not particularly auspicious. Jack sang H Awake My Own Sweet Rose H in his best style, U mezzo forte, con expres- sione,H but not even the curtain of number two moved, let alone the longed-for face. At the end of the second verse of H Bonnie Sweet Bessie, the Maid of Dundeef' a red face surmounted by black whiskers emerged from window number live and unceremoniously bade Jack S' cut it outf' Disheartened, Trafton sighed and retired. The next evening Jack could have sworn that she was looking out of her window as he came into his room after dinner. But she shut the window so quickly that he could not be sure even of the arrangement of her hair that had been H warmly golden," H sweetly russet," and H sun- light loving H all in a week. Inspired, he threw up his own window and proceeded to business. l-le had once heard of H Irish blue eyes,', and thought best to try the Irish musical appeal first. At the first verse of H Eileen Aroon " the back window opened, and Bridget McCarty, kitchen mechanic, stuck out her smiling face to investigate the source, and when the chorus drew to a close with CROCEU5 173 "All the world wide With thee at my side Forever more, Eileen Amon." she enthusiastically clapped her hands. Trafton winced and dropped it. " I know my lady has very elevated musical taste," Trafton mused, U but lim sure she would pardon a lifth rate song if only it contained her name." So he apologetically started up H Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie." In the midst of the chorus a black pompadour poked from the fourth window, smiled pensively, that is, the fragments below the pompadour smiled, but somehow to Jack the pompadour was the whole face and figure. But meeting no responsive smile, it withdrew. After a few bars of "Dorothea" he desisted. H Dainty Dorothea with the Sparkling Eyes " did not seem to be a call, so Jack lit the gas, directed a discontented gaze over his pennant-covered walls and book-laden table, and sighing deeply, plunged into H Roman Law." The second evening after that, Jack dropped into the little rocker at the open window with a happy smile. He was particularly keen about it, after missing an evening which he 'counted as lost, though spent in calling on some popular H town girls " with a Greek letter brother. In comparison with his discovery the girls had seemed silly, giggling, and quite inane. But the chief incentive to that satisfied little smile was the confidence that he had solved it. The name had floated to him as in a dream. H Jean," H Jean," it sang itself into his consciousness. And he remembered. Eleanor, H the first onef' had sung it to him Sunday afternoons. Her window was open. She must hear and know. His mellow tenor voice, vibrating with tenderness, flowed forth - "-Iean, my Jean, with the eyes of light And the beautiful dark brown hair, I would to God you were here to-night, Combing your beautiful tresses of light." The melody so soft, so persuasive, said H Jean ', to him where the words did not. I-le finished, and looked over. No sign at number two. At number three an old lady with coarse, red face was rocking with eyes shut. In a moment she stood up, and reaching her hand far out of the window, pounded on her shutter. H I-ler " figure came to number two. I74 CROCEUS H Stell! H H Stell! H cried the old lady in a rasping voice. The beautiful head came out of the window. Trafton drew back to loolc on unobserved. H Hello, Mrs. James, how are you? H The voice was disappointing. H But perhaps she has a coldf, Jack thought, finding it necessary to apologise even to himself. H Fine and dandy. Did you have a good time last night? H U Scrumptious! Met the swellest fellow! l-le's going to take me to the show next week. And he has the dandiest voice! You just oughta hear him sing H Be My Little Clinging Vine! H And when he sang H Dig My Grave beneath the Dear Old l-lollyhoclcsf' I had to cry to bust! It was so sad." " Ain't that dandy! Awful warm, ain,t it? N H Yep. I'1l know how to hint for some ' suds i when my 6 steady i gets here. Vifell, so long! Come in some timef' Jack groaned. If he had had a little more of the feminine in him, he would have wept. The beautiful dream of fourteen whole days! But being essentially masculine, he put on his hat, left the house, and walked down toward the city. A. M. C. ELIZABETH FARBER. - Every lesson must be learned Lest l Hunk next morn.

The good a study gives lives after it, The knowledge is interred with its books. So is it eier with Math. The sophomores Have told you that Math is useless. lf it were so, it were a grievous fault To teach it then to freshmen. And grievously should teachers answer for it. But with the kind consent of sophomores l now will speak to you in its defense. With Shakespere's forgiveness assumed, I come down to the measures of ordinary speech. E The study of math can be defended no matter what line of life you adopt. For the girl who believes that H Home is Womanls Sphere N - and that sphere has the kitchen as its center - There is the advantage of knowing the proportion of salt to soup, the trigonometric ratio between a pound of sugar and a pudding, or the length of time it will take to heat a spherical can of beans, radius two inches, on a gas range four feet high. After a course in math she can deftly describe a circle on a salmon can, with the opener as compass. She can easily pass the rolling pin over a curved plane of dough. No woman with a knowledge of pure quadratics would stoop to any but pure foodg no woman could be tricked into buy- ing radian polish when she knows the value of a ractian. I-ler cooking will be varied. She can easily compute the number of permutations of potatoes - they need not be always creamed or in salad. She is familiar with II in all its forms. She knows that the pantry is the loci of points for all supplies. She can easily -on the back of the eook-book- hgure up the real number of plates necessary for a given number of peo- ple. ln short, every dilemma of the kitchen approaches zero before the product of the math-room. To her the difficulties of housekeeping are imaginary quantities. If, on the other hand, a girl believes in the equality and independence of woman, if she is accordingly preparing for some life-work -if she 188 CROCEUS aspires to be a Newark police woman or a Paris H cabby 7' - does she not need training in math to enable her to add her tips, to square and cube the number of her customers, or to keep the unruly in the straight and narrow way? If she chooses some other profession, must she not be able to compute the time of sunrise in order to be prompt, and so be successful in her business? In the case of a lawyer, what more efficient than a course in graphs to prepare her for grafts? Math will teach her to extract the root of all evil - money. If she contemplates a life of travel - what is more urgent than familiarity with the marinerls compass? What more desirable than an idea of the hearing of one's ship from the Man in the Moon? If she is inclined at a large angle to settlement or missionary work, it is to math she must look. There is something in math that is beyond us - it is intangible, not an earthly science, but it deals with celestial hodiesg the very creation of its formulas is miraculous. If a woman believes in political equality how can she vote without a knowledge of the geometric turns of the machine? l-low can she be a factor in the life of the world without a knowledge of factoring? We have an hypothesis that no one should be more liberal, more broad-minded than a college woman. She should realize that she is not infallibleg she should not inclose her views in a parallelipipecl, and label them as unchangeable, even by Hornefs method. I-lere again, we de- pend upon math. By an application of the lan: of tangents, all subjects are within her reach. l-low can she be other than broad-minded, once her mind has been stretched by the comprehension of a polyhedral angle, or by a practical problem in Trig. 9 l-low can she be other than tolerant, once her math professor has substituted his unreasonable proofs for her lucid ones? Who will not be inventive after three terms, ex- perience with excuses for non-preparation in math? In my freshman year when I came across Emerson's saying - H All that is, is goodf, I thought he could never have had math and written that line. But I have since been converted to a toleration of the subject, at least, when there is no sine of a math book around. The formula for such an attitude is this. Recall how deftly Dr. Gale turns the polyhedral angle inside out, and apply the principle in these lines. A M The inner side of every cloud ls bright and shining I therefore turn mine inside out To show the lining." CROCEU5 The Bells I. l-lear that clanging, banging bell, - l-lorricl bell!

MARTHA KINGSTON. CROCEUS 195 The Chameleon A maiden bold in a dashing way Came to the college to make a stay. She was natty and spiffy and her frocks she would lend To clothe any girl who might be her friend. First, it was Flo-Flo with Haxen hair And for days that maid was her special care. Then it was Clo-Clo of the brunette style - Faith! To please that girl she would walk a mile. With the Haxen haired beauty she'd drive every week: No money at all would her siken purse keep, While night after night with Clo-Clo she'd dine And thence to the H Songbirds " of Osc' Hammerstein. But hark! Now Priscilla has taken her eye And no more to plays. does she hurriedly fly, For Priscilla to Y. W. C. A. is inclined So there our fair heroine now will we find. But it did not take long for this star to wane And another arose whose name was Jane. Jane loved lbsen, Maeterlinck, Shaw, So forever together these two we saw. They discussed Nazimova in U The l-louse of a Doll H And the Roman Empire - its rise and its fall. Shelley and Keats the girl now adored And even by Browning was not a bit Hoored. But this pace was killing, and she now blase, Became suddenly smitten with Mabel McKay, Who in a gay whirl went to dances and teas, So on to fair Mabel she did hurriedly seize. As with Clo-Clo and Flo-Flo, Mabel and Jane, The others that follow, in a way much the same, Shall, for a time, her completely enslave Then over a new chum she wildly will rave. I96 C R O C E U 5 Vive L.'Americaine! A man is not too old at forty- or even fifty, to come nearer the truth - to take pleasure in the sight of a charming face: in proof of which statement I offer you the fact that since the first time I saw Mad- emoiselle in La Salle Petite, I took pains to reach this most com- mendable restaurant early enough each noon to take the table nearest hers. For the first time in weeks, to-day, I was late - only by a few min- utes, but my usual place at her right had already been usurped and the other tables near hers were also filled. I was not minded, however, to give up my point of vantage and I appealed to Colette as I hung my hat on the rack which held that of Mademoiselle. H Ah! Colette," I said carelessly, H a chair here, at my table, pleasef' In that pretty blonde head of hers Colette carried a clever little mind and a shrewd acquaintance with some phases of human nature- and tho' I've no doubt she had long ago recognized in me a musty bachelor and noticed that my hair daily grew thinner, I am convinced that she understood the purpose of my manoeuvre and did not scoff. She arranged my plate and silver deftly and was ready for my order before I had had even a moment to glance about me. I looked first at l..'Americaine - for she was American, unmistak- ably, straight and well-formed, carrying her head a bit proudly. I was watching her as she daintily buttered a roll, mentally apostrophizing the charm of our women, when I was attracted by an exclamation from one of the interlopers at my shrine. H love, Brooks - stunning girl over there. Yes, to your leftf' I had barely glanced at the men before, but now I looked at them closely. It is strange how after a few months in a cosmopolitan city like Paris, where one might expect transformation through blending with various nationalities, the characteristics of each become more marked and easily recognizable, than when considered in the home country. These two men before me were to a certainty English, from their manner both of con- duct and of speech. They Were students at the Academy, I gathered from their mention of Bernan,s lecture, young men, the one addressed as U Brooks H evidently a few years the other's junior. H American, I should sayf, remarked Brooks, H decidedly jolly- looking fwhich she most decidedly was not, I thoughtj. A good sub- CROCEUS 197 ject for French conversation, especially as she understands la langue Anglaisef' He followed his own suggestion, volunteering in abominally pro- nounced French, and none too softly, a series of comments. I had often noticed that Mademoiselle chatted with Colette in French, and had the impulse to stop Mr. Brooks, but restrained it, from a desire to see the result of his eagerness to practise his French. "An adorable nose, ripping hair the Frenchified the adjectivej and most thoughtful eyes - and a most kissable - H H Messieurs,', I broke in, then stopped. H The salt, if you please," I linished lamely and salted an olive hastily. Mademoiselle l.fAmericaine had given no sign that she heard save a quick flush, but now she turned to Colette and said clearly, in smooth French, U Collette, voulez-vous m'apporter des petits-pains? 'I Mr. Brooks was abashed, but not for long. These innocents abroad must exchange their appreciative and critical judgments, and they con- tinued, not a whit more softly, in German. L' I-ler chin is a trille weak, thof- nur ein bischen " - Cwhich it most certainly was not, - and so on while Mademoiselle calmly and indifferently ate her glace. But soon the inner man in Brooks made himself heard - U Das Madchen hat uns gar kein Brot gegeben H - he said crossly. H Colette! H But before she could come, Mademoiselle rose, pinned on her hat quickly, and lifting the plate of rolls from her table, carried it to ours and set it before them. H Meine I-lerren, erlauben Sie," she said, and turned away. Mr. Brooks was the first to regain breath - H Well, I'll be blowedf' he said slowly. I picked up my hat. H I hope you will, sir,H said I, and followed Mlle. L'Americaine to the door. M. F. I-I. G. H.

The blossoms, massed in large umbels, are semi-double, of medium size. The Color on first unfolding, is either reddish pink or purplish pink, then turns to amethyst, and finally steel blue as the flower fades. The general color impression is that of the Nlarch violet. The yellow stamens appear in sharp contrast to the blue petals. The plant is vigorous in growth, with shining green foliage and few but sharp thorns. So far it has not suffered from mildew, and is considered one ofthe most hardy ramblers. 33.00. The Everblooming Crimson Rambler , f F ' 75 For many years it-has been the aim. or every Owe? 0 an e Rose grower to raise a Rambler which would be everblooming, and now we are able to offer such a rose. This new variety is a sprout from the famous and beautiful Crimson Rambler, similar in color but more brilliant and lasting than the old favorite. It possesses a further advantage over any other rambler in the fact that it flowers profusely on the young wood in its first year. The new " Flower of Fairfield H is of vigorous growth, and when in bloom supersedes anything else by the wonderful display of its brilliant crimson clusters of blossoms. It starts blooming in the early spring, and continues to flower till late in autumn, thus it is rightlytermed N Perpetual Blooming." This new climber is not only most effective for covering wdls or trellises, arches, etc., but most attractive for table decorations and other cut purposes. 52.00. The M 012' Complex?

M01'C than fifty of these young women, by reason of previous education and training, were eligible for special preparation for commercial teachingg also for the work of the correspondent and private secretary. Over thirty of them actually made preparation for commercial teaching and are now pleasantly situated in high school commercial departments or in private commercial schools as teachers of the commercial subjects. The environment is congenial and the salaries are very attractive.

CROCEU5 AT THE END OF THE SPRING TERM My mind is on tennis, my mind is not here, My mind is on boating, this time of the year, On pleasures and picnics, my mind's not on this My mind's not in class, Prof. - wherever it is! Sound were my sleep, and blithe my morn, If 8: l5's were not. But now of rest my life is shorn And lnreakfastless my lot. l-list! what is that direful squeak Borne forth upon the air To maclden with its ceaseless crealc? Why, that's Prof. Moreyis chair!

O come with me to a sand dune, Let,s board the Fairport car, O come to Lake Iroquois erst while beach Whe1'e the Ridge road stretches afar. Time was when the glacier covered This verdant and vernal vale, Where now the sand pit lies outspread With layers of slate and shale. O come and look at the talus And bring your notebook alongg O bring your map of the district And join the geology throng. CROCEU5 'l"HE Index Abstract Guarantee Co. . American Fruit Product Co.
