The Coyote springs forth with a dash from his lair,
His piercing orbs flash and his pearly teeth gleam,
The bright beaming light from his mantle of hair
Ts like that of snow in its silvery sheen.
With the howl of the night-wind he leaps on his prey,
And bounds like a tiger in the midst of his foes,
A victor he stands mid the wreck and the fray,
As his victims he scatters while spurning their blows
The wildest and fiercest that ever has cast
His fortunes with Seniors or Sophies or Preps,
Undaunted and free as the hurricane's blast,
He's "rounded" them all like a herd on the steppes.
And if by mistake he's plunged foul of his goal,
Has failed in his triumph to leap to the height,
That shall make him immortal, a conquering soul,
Let time be the judge in his passage and flight.

Our Alma Mater
Hail to the U. that in triumph advances,
All hail to our Alma Mater:
Bless the red banner that fluttering dances,
And cheer for our Alma Mater.
Swift as the eagles that soar o'er the mountains,
Yes, fleeter, by far, are her athletes:
Lovely as roses that bloom by the fountains,
More charming, indeed, are her maidens.
Keen is the logic that shows forth her powers,
And bright are the wits of her rostrumg
Sweet is the music that floats from her bowers
As Thoth e'er produced on his lyre.
Hail then the U. that in triumph advances,
All hail to our Alma Mater,
Bless the red banner that fluttering dances,
And cheer for our Alma Mater.

This was pre-eininently 2111 " era of good feeling." The unity of the student body found ex-
pression i11 the orgfmizaltioii of the Student Association and p11hli1-11t.ion of 21 College Journal.
The I. C. O. A. for the proniotion of public- speaking was forinecl. Athletic sports 11e1'elope11
apace. Concerts were held. In short, the school entered upon 11 full college career, with all its
The increase of students C88-'89j was such that it was found diHiicult to provide for them.
Two new Professors were added to the faculty, yet it became necessary to employ student tutors.
The important feature of this year was the graduation of the first college class.
The school year of '89-'90 opened with all the prospects of success, but dark clouds lay hidden
beneath the horizon. Failure of crops, but above all, the sudden death of President Olson spread
gloom and disaster over the University. During his short stay he had not only won the love of
the students, but the esteem of the faculty and citizens of the city and state.
After a month of deliberation the intimate friend of the late President, Dr. Grose, was elected
to fill the vacancy. Much was expected from him but he soon alienated both members of the
faculty and students. These unpleasant relations reacted with deadly effect upon the school,
resulting in the resignation of the President, the suspension of a number of students and the clos-
ing of school before the end of the year.
On the opening of the next school year, a new faculty was placed in charge of the work. J. WV-
Mauck was elected President and together with his co-workers soon placed the institution on a
firm basis. Funds were lacking, yet all departments were heroically kept up. But just as the
tide seemed turning and conditions began to wear a brighter aspect another calamity was in
store, this time the destruction of the University building by fire. Even the stoutest heart, for
the moment, turned away in despair. All seemed lost, but not all, for the University yet remained.
The plucky President reorganized the classes and went to work the next day. Dormitories
were pressed into service as class rooms and apparatus were secured from other colleges until new
ones could be purchased. VVise management on the part of President Maucl-2 and the co-
operation of the citizens of Vermillion and county soon bore their fruit in a new building and
After the resignation of J. VV. Mauck, '97, J. E. Todd served as Acting President until the
election of the present incumbent, Garrett Droppers. This brief period was marked by a steady
growth in the attendance.
The present administration is too familiar to most of the COYOTE readers to need extended
mention. The term has given place to the semester andasix-day system has been adopted. A
closer co-operation has been established between the high schools and college department. A
law school has also been established. CSee page GOD.
The rapid increase in students has made the old quarter extremely crowded and uncomfort-
able but the speedy completion of the new Science Hall will relieve the congestion for a time at
least. If the present is an indication of the future the University bids fair to enter upon anew
era of unparalleled prosperity.

gan, class of '75,-and was afterwards invited to take a place as instructor. The next year he was
promoted to full professorship. In 1879 he resigned and took a post-graduate course in Johns
Hopkins University. In 1881 he was recalled to Hillsdale as Professor of Latin, but owing to ill-
health he was compelled to relinquish the position at the end of two years. For the next six
years he was engaged in business, holding the position of secretary and treasurer of a large in-
surance and trust company in Minneapolis. Chosen President of the University he assumed the
duties of that position in October 1891. For six years he labored faithfully and assiduously to
advance the interests of the University with a large measure of success. Few will ever know the
obstacles encountered and the difficulties overcome. Suffice to say that the University owes
much to his efficient andiearnest endeavors. At the end of six years he decided to return to
business life and loecame director and treasurer of the Milwaukee and Chicago Electric Railroad
Company. His present residence is Highland Park, Ill.

To the Senior Maiden
Sweet maid with hair of flaxen hue,
And eyes that sparkle like the morning dew,
With hands as White as the lilies that blow,
And a neck like the driven snow.
Yours is a fair and classic brow,
Your features clean cut as the gracefulprow
That cleaves the sea through the darkening still
For its haven beneath the hill.
Your form is trim, a quiet calm
Pervades your presence like a fragrant balm
That Iulls to rest with its quieting touch
E'en the hero on his crutch.
Your voice is like the night-in-gale's,
Like the carolings of birds in sunny dales,
As sweet and clear as the song of the brook,
Lightly leaping from nook to nook.
Your charms are like for-get-me-nots,
But fade at last in golden wedded thoughts
That bind secure to your quivering heart,
The foiled victim of Cupid's dart.

"A fair C'fl3f67"t07' is a s'z'Zc'n.t recommendation."
Miss Bell, the President of the Senior class, has made
an enviable record in U. S. D. class rooms. She was
formerly a member of '01, but at the close of her Sopho-
more year she Went to Chicago to spend a year in study-
ing music with Liebling. When she returned to the
University she joined '02 at the beginning of their
Junior year and has since been a leading spirit of the
class. She has made a specialty of English and for the
past two years has served on the Volanfe Staff.

Also one of many and varied accomplishments. He
is a star man in the class room, the society hall and in
athletics. He plays the organ, the cornet and football
-and sings divinely. He hails from Sioux Falls, our
metropolis. During the last four years he has fought
many battles and won many laurels on the gridiron. He
is one of the three men who represented us in this year's
debate with N. D. During his Junior and Senior years
he has in divers manners gained recognition from Prexy.

To Miss Richardson belongs the very rare distinction
of being one of the most peaceable members of the
Senior class. She is very much in demand on class com-
mittees, for it is said that the class so conscientiously
apply their theory of 1' progress by revolution" that
there are but three or four members in the class who can
be trusted to conduct committee work decently and in
order. Preparatory to entering college, Miss Richardson
spent some time in teaching the young idea how to
shoot. While here, she has made a specialty of English.

C. C. Caldwell is an all-around college man. He is
good in the class room, is actively engaged in Y. M. C. A.
work, makes a fair showing on the gridiron and shines
in literary and debating circles. He was one of U. S.
D.'s representatives in the debate with N. D. this year.
C. C. realized in his Freshman days that the all-around
man fusses. This he has always done, electing fussing
in his Junior year and dropping German in his Senior
year that he might take double hours. With his A.B.
this year he also receives a degree in fussing.

notwithstanding their youth, hold their own with the
patriarchs of the class. He delights in helping to create
deadlocks in class meetings. His favorite pastime is
going on a tramp with "Art" either to shoot "game,"
hunt bugs, or fish-f'Art" out of the river.

"And in her tongue is the law of kindness."
Miss Gunderson's dignity is no doubt due to the fact
that she was born and bred in the vicinity of the Uni-
versity. She is one of those gracious Senior girls who
Ell the hearts of Freshmen with awe and admiration.
Before entering college she so well proved her ability as
a teacher that after graduating she expects to continue
that profession for awhile, Throughout her course she
has been one of the most active members of the Y. XV.

The Staff Girls
She is a slender dark-eyed maid,
She loves a mighty Senior,
She is the crank of all the class,
She is its little mistress.
A second maid with light-brown locks,
With greater pranks to mark her,
Reviles with caustic words and darts,
Another giant Senior.
A third with form that's long and lank,
With smiles both bright and sunny,
Redeerns the time and does with ease
What others fail to conquer.
A fourth with gentle looks and words
With mien calm and tender,
Reveals to all the sweets of life
That make it Worth the living.
And if you think with such as these,
No thing can be accomplished,
Just look at this our Annual, friend,
And be convinced, you reader.

GEORGE RIARTIN ABILD, Jasperian.
'A And when CL lacly's 'ln lhe case,
You know all other things give place."
Mr. Abild having severed his connection with the farm
some years ago, came to Vermillion with a view to con-
pleting a course in the University. Having been for
some years in the preparatory department, he joined
the class of '03, At present he is taking a course in
Fussology and so far has had splendid success. What
he intends to do after graduating seems to be aprofound
Secret. Some, however, think they know.
ANDREW L. ANDERSON, Jasperian.
" How I pity boshfnl men."
Mr. Anderson has been taking special work in the
University till this year when he decided that he could
do no better than cast his lot with the class of '03, He
is a very quiet young man. The camera is his friend-
many of the views in the COYOTE were taken by him.
He is also an important member of the University Band.
l NIABEL FLORENCE BURKLAND.
" To be womanly is the greatest charm of woman."
Miss Burkland is one of the best students in the Junior
class. Until she realized the importance of the role of
'03, she begrudged the time spent in class meetings.
But since her "awakening" she has been a faithful
class worker. Her most praiseworthy achievement
along this line being the success with which she ferreted
out from the hidden recesses of professional hearts and
memories the material for some of those painfully ac-
quired faculty biographies.
PERYL HANNAH DONOHO.
HA merry heart vnakezfh Cl cheerful countenance."
Miss Donoho claims old Vermillion as her home. She
is one of those "town', girls who consider a college
course better if taken in small doses, so she'has been
part of the time a special and part of the time regular.
She decided that '03 was the most promising class of
the University, so when we reached the point where she
felt justified in joining us she became a loyal supporter
of the Silver and Blue, and has never had reason to
regret her choice.
l"n.xN1Q Rfxrmoxn ,l3lnW.xnns, Nostorian.
"Nc 'fs fl! qufcl y0'ull1.."
Mr. lCdwarc.ls comcs from Bowdle. Although he is
a good student, it is in athletics where he is most prom-
inent. Because of that fact he has often had the great
athletes ol' Greece and Rome recalled to his mind.
"Carlyle," however, talifs no offense at anything but
continufs his purpose with a determined will to win.
He has the well earned reputation of being one of the
best players on the 'Varsity football team.
" l"0I'l!l07' of sporl llmpn of study." -
Miss Hanson claims the QQ1'21llilCSJE- state in the Union
as her birthplace. Seeing the advantages of graduating
with this class. instead of the Unaughty tWo's,'l she
cousiderately left school for a year until we had caught
up with her in our studies. Her accomplislnnent is
entertaining young men.
Ui..-xl H. Haxsox, Jasperian.
"None bu! ltizrzsclf can be his parallel."
Olai Hanson, the famous pigsliin hugger of lf. S. D.,
is a recent addition to the Junior class. With his usual
foresight he san' that there would never be another class
like that of 1903 and so decided to become a part of it.
On account of his hygienic theories Cor something elsej
he occasionally UD takes country walks.
ENINIA YIAYNIEIS, T.B.D.
" The mildesl manners and Zlze genilcst heart."
Miss Haynes comes from that treeless golden west
where the dazzling sunshine continually bathes the
earth in splendor. But 'why tell that to any who have
caught the radiant light of her smile, for where else
could she get it but from our golden prairie sun? Until
her Sophomore year, Miss Haynes was a member of 'O1.
But a prophetic vision told her that her talents should
be used in upholding the banner of '03. So she left
school to return at the beginning of the present year.
She has been Httingly rewarded by being made a mem-
ber of the first COYOTE Staff.
MARY ISLLINOR LATHROP.
"She scarce can tell if she has loved or not.
She of her heart no register has kept."
Miss Lathrop is a young lady of amiable qualities,
plain in her tastes and of a peaceable disposition. Her
bent of mind is well exhibited in her answers to Dr.
Logan's questions on " Genius and Old Fogyismfl
Though very circumspect, she delights as much as the
next one in moonlight walks in the checkered shadows
of the wayside elms. She enjoys skating also, but sel-
dom ventures on the ice for fear of a fall that might
disorganize the brain processes that make up her knowl-
edge on the above mentioned subject. Her ability as a
letter writer was recognized by the class when it made
her the Alumni editor of the COYOTE.
THEODORE J. llIALhiGREN.
"Of a shrewd and careful vmjndf
Mr. Malmgren joined the '03 class in the Sophomore
year. He is believed by some to be the oldest member
of the class yet his heart is warm and he has plenty of
class spirit. He rooms with a Senior, yet he says that
is no sign that he has any love for that tribe. ' He no
doubt will become a politician and has already been in
the race for the legislature. Malmgren also had the
honor Of being a member of the 'Varsity's first football
team. He is very patriotic to his class and has secured
the comic snapshots for the COYOTE. '
A CLARA B. NIILLER. I
'ZFO1' she was jes' a quiet kind."
If she would do something wicked or foolish or start-
ling her biographer might feel encouraged, but what is
a poor biographer to say about a classmate who always
lives in the prescribed way' and never docs anything she
shouldn't do. Miss Miller belongs to the conservative
element of the class, probably because she has always
lived in the classical University town. She has made
modern languages her specialty and enjoys the distinc-X
tion of having had more French than any other student
of the University.

Gertrude Morris comes from North Dakota to gain the
advantages of the U. S. D. Her preparatory Work was
done in the Baptist College at Sioux Falls. In her
Sophomore year she became President of the class of '03,
and to her untlagging zeal and loyalty is due a great
amount of the exuberance of class spirit which produces
the first University Annual. Miss Morris is a good
student, and thoroughly devoted to the interests of her

"And then it talks, ye gods, how it talks."
If you want to know what the public or at leasta
portion of it think of you, just ask Miss Salmer. Her
caustic remarks about the Seniors exhibit a lofty patri-
otism that would lead one to believe she would graduate
a Junior. Her aversion for Seniors and similar
tribes that infest terra firnia is so great that she abso-
lutely refuses to talk with any one of them for more
than two hours at a time. She is an adept at mimicry
and also has a notable genius for story telling.

"Time is too precious to be wasteclf,
Nels Thompson, the COYOTE '03 artist, is a very in-
dustrious young man. He has been with the Juniors
since their Freshman days and has shared alike their

WILLIAM XVILLIAMSON, J R., Jasperian.
"And still his thoughts ran on."
To justly present the characteristics of such a person
as Mr. Williainson would require a volume. He is a
man of deep thought and profound knowledge. The
first years of his college life were spent in the sole com-
panionship of his books and in the study of philosophical
questions. His chosen profession will no doubt con-
tinue to be that of molding public opinion. He is a
printer by trade and a member of the Volcmte staff
which has well fitted him for the position he now holds
as Editor-in-Chief ofthe COYOTE. He was a delegate to
the International Student Convention, Toronto, and on
his return visited Buffalo in the interest of the Annuali

"I always try to be as funny as I can."
Paul Young, the class baby, began his terrestrial
career some few years ago. His highest ambition was
to become the " cute " boy of U. S. D., and this ambi-
tion has been fully realized. If the present foretells the
future, he will undoubtedly become as ardent a fusser
as the University will care to boast. He is a good stu-
dent, a good athlete and can jump higher than any other
man in the University, also the business manager of the
'L NE day there rapped at Alma Mater's door a wee being who asked admittance
and gave the iianie-1903. Alma Materdesired to number 1903 among her
household, but was the least bit disappointed upon bc-holding him, for she
had expected that he would be larger. But she took him for one of her
own children and trained him well. He was bashlul and modest that first year-his
older brothers and sisters did not notice him much so he lived his life alone and
spent most of his time with his books. Just once did he leave home-upon the
occasion when he journeyed to the town and there for the lirst time shakingly faced
The next year 1903, who was now called Sophomore. made a stir among his brothers
and sisters. He must have spent the vacation in deep thought and planning, for
when he returned to school his friends and enemies scarcely recognized him. To
be sure he was still small, smaller even than when he was a lfreshman, but there was
an unwonted air of dc-termination about him which hinted of things to come. His
size was still the subject of many jokes, but the year had not become very old before
he gave his mates soinething to think about besides his size. He knew that if he
were well and strong it did not matter about his size, so he systematically developed
his faculties, and many and marvelous were the things he accomplished for himself
and for Alma Matter. One of his first acts was to search among all his teachers
and provide for himself from among their number a wise Counsellor. For, unlike his
next elder brother, 1903 wisely discerned the unwisdom of youth and at times desired
the counsel of a more experienced mind.
VVhile a Sophomore, he greatly developed his social nature. lt was known 'among
his mates that once a fortnight he desei ted his study-room and hied himself to cher-
ished haunts unknown to others. It was rumored that on these occasions he was
not always working, for often his merry countenance betrayed the fact that Pleasure
had been his companion. But as to the nature of the business or pleasure of these
occasions, 1903 kept his own counsel. Once only did he divulge his whereabouts-
upon the memorable occasion when the Counsellor gave a sumptous feast in honor
of his Charge. Thus proving to the self-sufficient elder brother that in many and
varied ways may a Counsellor be a blessing. The aim of 1903 's activity was known
only to himself. On but one occasion did he celebrate in common with his mates-
this was the day when, in accordance with the precedent of many of his brothers
and sisters, 1903 presented his offering for the beautifying of Alma Mater 's orchard.
The next year 1903 was called Junior, and now he truly surprised his mother and
the other members of the family. His systematic development had borne fruit and
he was now as large and strong as normal children, and much more active. While
he was still a Sophomore, it occurred to him that his mother 's children, like those of
many of her sisters, should put the chronicles of her life into a permanent form which
her children might forever preserve. 1903 confided his wish to the Counsellor, but
the Counsellor said," I fear you are still too young and weak to undertake such a taskfl
But so persistent was the thought that when he became a Junior, 1903 could not rid
himself of it and the Counsellor seeing that 1903 was restless in the desire to try this
thing, bade him try it if he were able, but warned him that if he accomplished it,
it must be by his own efforts. So 1903 provided himself with an abri of grey and blue
and set to work in earnest. Long and hard he worked at his task. No longer did he
have his fortnightly fctcs, his Whole air betokened a life of serious work. Again he
bore the sneers and jests of his mates. f'Such folly," said they, Uhave not many of
us older ones tried this same thing before and did wc' not fail, so how can you hope
to succeed? " But patiently 1903 pursued his course and lo, before the summer came
again he presented to Alma Mater the successful product of his toil-the first Chron-
icle of her life.

F all the classes that have graced the U., the Freshmen is not only the largest,
but the most diversified in its varied accomplishments and attaimnents.
Wfithin its ranks are found men Whose eloquence would do justice to a Glad-
stone or a VVebster, writers who would hold Johnson at bay and athletes that
would spurn to do homage to the ancient champions of the Grecian arena. Ten fiat
is the record of their sprinter, and their right tackle is second to none on the gridiron.
Of embryo artists, musicians and philosophers they have a score. Even the crank
has found a congenial place in their ranks. Their boys are homely and Wiseg their girls
are pretty, and sweet as deiv-dipped roses kissed by the first rays of the morning sun.
At their first class meeting they chose a president and other paraphrenalia of
office, also elected themselves orphans. At a later meeting class pins were selected.
The pin is a pretty design in the form of a laurel wreath of gold with a purple enamelled
banner on which are inscribed the letters U. S. D. This early adoption of class pins
gives them the distinction of being the first class in the University to secure their
pins in their Freshmen year.
ln these meetings they generated a lot of class spirit and have ever since looked
askance at anything that looks like a Senior or a Sophomore. The Juniors are
their friends, their invincibles-upon whom they look as the embodiment of every-
thing that is Worth While in college life. Nightly their dreams wander to the dim
and distant future when they too shall immortalize themselves by publishing a Junior
The members of the class are not much given to social affairs but have enjoyed
a number of pleasant gatherings among which were the party given in their honor by
the Juniors and the reception tendered by the Seniors to the College classes. CSee

Our Alma Materli
You may tell in rhythmic story of your gables high and hoar,
Of your crumbling Gothic Gables, dark With ivy creeping o'er,
Of your lichen-dappled cornices, of coronals aflame,
With the red dye of the Wall flower-but your glory is your shame.
Read the lesson Nature teaches in your ivy-fretted towers,
In the fanes that she has covered with her mosses and her flowersg
It is this,-in patience listen as she Whispers to you-"I
Ever hide beneath my mantle that which pains the human eye."
Thus I hear it, and I cherish more my Alma Mater here,
Though her altars are but kindled and no priestly throng is nearg
Though the corn fields Wave about her, and her past is but a day-
Better is that day of progress than your decades of decay.
The above poem was written by Frank Mclnetrie, and published in The Cynic, a college
paper that he was publishing in 1889. The poem was published in the issue of September 21,
1899. It was written in reply to a metrical letter from a friend urging Mr. McPetrie to forsake
the rowdy Vtlest and finish his course in an Eastern College.
The history of the life of Frank M. McPeti-ie is familiar to all of the earlier students of the
University of South Dakota, and many of the present-day students have read of his exploits
while a student here, and his career after leaving college and branching out as a newspaper
correspondent. It is the memory of men with an undercurrent of good moral nature that are
dear to those with whom he came in contact while he was 21 student here. He died about three
years ago at his home in Joliet, Illinois.

' N response to the urgent demands for a school of law in the state of South
Dakota, the Legislature at the session held in 1901, authorized the
' establishment of a law department at the K' State Universityf'
- - Accordingly the Board of Regents provided for the purchase of a law
library, provided for suitable rooms, and selected a Dean for the Department. The
first semester opened on the first day of October, 1901,with an enrollment of only four
students, but the number of students has, however, steadily increased.
The profession of law now requires greater preparation and a more thorough course
of study than it formerly did. The affairs of civilized communities are becoming
more complex year by year, and new questions are constantly arising out of changing
conditions and the onward move of the world and of business.
A broader education is demanded to cope successfully with the questions and dif-
ficulties involved in modern progress. To meet these new requirements ample pro-
visions have been made by providing for a three years' course of study, and requiring
of the students seeking admission preliminary education equivalent to a three years?
High School course. ,
If this seems hard, it after all does nothing more than furnish the equipment of
success. No standard that is attainable under ordinary conditions is too high either
with respect to learning or character.
Those who have the qualities to achieve substantial results will reach them, and
those who ask for easy conditions and soft places will, in any event, be disappointed
sooner or later.
The Board of Regents is to be congratulated upon securing the services of the
Hon. Thomas Sterling as Dean of the Law Department. His excellent legal dis-
cipline, and clear, accurate knowledge of legal principles, combined with his patience
and clear judgment win for him the support and confidence of the students, and are
incentives to their best efforts. f
Under the supervision of such a man, the Law Department cannot fail to be an
inportant addition to the already successful and prosperous University of South
Dakota, and all who complete the course under his instructions will go out from this
institution thoroughly equipped for their profession and an honor to their Alma Mater

The College of lWusie
HE students in the College of Music are nearly all of the genus long-haired musi-
cian. This is not so strange as might appear on first thought, for they are
nearly all girls-except the basses and tenors of the Choral Society! It must
be acknowledged, however, that the long hair, or some mysterious accom-
panying quality, exercises the usual fascination in the premises, since wherever
the music students go they are oppressed by throngs of admirers-not to say
adulators. To be sure they are the prettiest girls in the lhiiversity, but that is
only a detail. The deeds of prowess to which they inspire the athletes and mili-
tary men of l'. S. D. are due to more artistic causes, and if perchance some
warrior fails to be made a convert to Wfagner or Brahms by the concert performance
of a fair 'Musicaf she sure to proselyte him by a private argument on the
stairway of the main building, or at the next recital reception.
The most important institution of the University is, of course, the Choral Society,
as it is also the University's society of largest membership. Around it center the
activities of the College of Music, for all of its faculty. and most of the pupils are
members. besides many sincere musical amateurs of the lfniversity and town, by
which tokens it has become a pleasant social center. When the Society gives, as it
has recently, an opera like the Chimes of N ormandy, or a program of more serious
music, the event is a musical one of note, not only for the community, but for the
State. Dr. Logan is the Society's President, Mr. Sloan the Secretary-librarian, Miss
Woods, the Treasurer-no sinecure in this case. The executive committee is Mr.
Payne, Dr. Foster and Mr. Meyers. The post of conductor is filled ex-ofhcio by Mr.
Grabill, Director of the College.
Following the Choral Society in importance are the organizations of the various
musical classes. Of course these are all properly fitted out with officers Ctoo numer-
ous to mentionb, bye-bye laws Crigidly enforcedj and class yells of a very remarkable
species, supposedly melodic, but not yet certainly identified.
As to the faculty, they are all personally popular and have the loyal adherence of
the students in a marked degree. They are pedagogically well equipped, having
derived their technical knowledge from the most celebrated institutions, European
and American. As artists they are sincere and capable. The doctrine about the
College is that a musician should know music first of all, and then be able to express
it on his instrument. So there are harmony classes, ear-training and ensemble
classes form, composition and history classes, through which all pass, on the road to
graduation, And the instrumental instruction Cconsidering the voice, too, as an
instrumentj is both individual and in class, so that the pupils have the advantage of
both the American and European conservatory systems. The effect of all the asso-
ciation, emulation and broad study is admirable. The pupils become not merely
superficial parlor players and singers, but regard their art seriously. They study
it, not as a means of display, but as the art most perfectly manifesting, for the modern
world, the beautiful and the true. 5

N especially signiiieant and satisfactory feature ol' the present year's work
if the interest manifested in Fine Art. Time was and not many years back
when Vermillion liardly knew an easel. This year she has had on exhibition
a fine collection of pictures from the state of New York.
It is also encouraging to find a large, well-lighted studio in our University instead
of the classroom used for that purpose six years ago. Many other iinprovements
have been made. Casts and a large variety of still life studies have been purchased.
A fund for the hiring ol' live models has been provided. In the halls hang photo-
gravures from old masters making an interesting as well instructive study. Good
books and magazines have been added to the Art llepartment in the library.
Too much can scarcely be said in eornpliinent to the instructor in Fine Art. She
labored long and arduously before seeing anything like the desired result from her
Work. Wie prophesy a brighter future.
Let us bear in mind that Fine Art among us is yet in its youth.
In clue time talents now latent will be developed and we may reasonably expect our
Art Institute to rank among the best.

HE origin of the Jasperian Society is wrapped in the mists of obscurity.
Its earliest records lie in some mysterious vault whose location the march
of time has effaced from the memory of man. Tradition relates that the
society was organized in 1882, that it was named "Jasperian" from the
jasper stone of which the bniversity hall is built, that it is the first and only society
that has shared all the varying fortunes of the U. S. D.
The activities of the society havefbeen manifold. Always engaged in general lit-
erary work and timely discussions, it has also been a factor in social affairs of the
University. In early years it conducted a weekly paper, " The Little Spartan,"
which was read at the weekly meetings. This publication ceased with the appear-
ance of the "Volante," but the annual custom of presenting the University library
with a bound volume of the student journal still prevails. Securing commencement
lecturers, conducting inter-society and inter-collegiate debates, discussing society
badges, attempting plays, holding mock trials and senatorial sessions, planting
society trees and celebrating its achievements with glorious banquets-such activities
attest to the versatility of the Jasperians in the past.
Although first in the field, the Japs have by no means lived without rivals. The
Philomatheans and Eucleians were early competitors, but unable to tide over the
crisis of '91, they disbanded and helped to swell the ranks of the Japs. The Olym-
pians led a brief existence. The Minervas-but they never were rivals-the sisterly
Minervas-when they passed to their reward the Japs mourned deep and long. Then
came the colonial period. In 1900 over-population was imminent. Aparty of pil-
grims embarked for strange lands and set up the independent republic of the Trident.
The following year another migration resulted in the Greek colony of Alpha Phi
Alpha. These flourishing nations are now famous for their Jasperian civilization,
almost rivaling the mother country itself.
The map of the AmericanUnion is dotted with J asperians, enthroned on the highest
rung of the ladder of fame. The field of battle has been consecrated with Jasperian
blood. In the arts of peace, in law, medicine and theology, in the teaching pro-
fessions, in the business world and among the literary lights of the nation are a multi-
tude of worshippers still looking to the J asperian shrine as their Mecca.

HE Tridentia Society dates its origin from Nove1nber28, 1800, when it was
organized by eighteen students of the University. Its aim and purpose is the
literary, social and athletic 2LilY2l.l1C'0l11OI1ljf ol those composing its rneniber-
ship. The organization of the society was due to two causes, both of wl1ich
are probably well lil10XVl1 to most ol' those i11to whose hands the Corofrn will find its
way. The firsteause wasa violentdifference of opinion i11 a l'flll'l.7lllCll1f organiza-
tion that at o11e 1111116 comprised the greater portion of the students of the Uni-
versity. Here, l1'l other instances, it was proven that a house divided against
itself cannot standg eighteen members withdrew from the .lasperian Society. The
second cause was a fraternal feeling among those eighteen men and a belief that
their individual and eoinmon interests Cflllltl be furthered by such 2111 organization.
Accordingly the Trident-ia Society was organized with due eereniony and witl1
such a basis that we eonfldeiitly look forward to its future existent witl1 the l'11i-
The life of any literary society common i11 colleges and lll'1lVOI'Sltl0S must of neces-
sity be more or less uneventful, and something of a repetition fro111 week to week.
The Tridentia Society is no exception, yet there are some events which may be
During the remainder of the year of our organization some time was SPC1111 in
perfecting the organization and i11 carrying out its original purposes. December
1-1, 1900, will long be remenibered by the T ridentias and others. This was the date
of our first 3111111211 banquet, and there was war in the atmosphere. It is rumored
that one niember actually saw Mars himself hovering with fiendish glee about the
scene of festivities. The truth of the matter will probably never be known, but the
most acceptable explanation of the phenomenon now advanced is, that the supposed
ghost of Mars was nothing more than a yapory cloud of Chlorine rising from the retort
of the " Chemists," mingled with the bellicose spirits of our one-time brothers. 1
The first annual reunion and second annual banquet took place December 20, 1901.
During the past year while carrying on the usual society work, the Tridentia has
been preparing itself to become a Chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
As to the work accomplished by the society, it is only necessary to know the per-
sonnel of its membership. It contributes its quota of athletes to all athletic teams
representing the University. It is also represented on the regular debating teams of
the Debating League. Weeklyf meetings are held in rooms belonging to the Society,
and closed to all but regular members and niembers of the University faculty. Mem-
bership is limited to male students.

Theta Eta History
HE Theta Eta Literary Society with a membership of about twenty-five
collegiate students is recognized as one of the strongest organizations of the
University of South Dakota. The processes of growth and development of
this society have been evolutionary g while its present prosperous existence
exemplifies the principle of the survival of the fittest.
The societyls history begins properly not with its reorganization in the autumn of
1900 under the name of Theta Eta,but some ten years earlier g for the same thread of
membership has continued from that time until the present. Its first record dates
back to the organization in 1890 of the Philomathean Debating Club which gave place
at the close of its second year to the Clionian Literary Society.
For several years that society's work was carried on very successfully but in an
evil hour its doors were declared open. Of the visitors who came many were admitted
to membership even when their qualifications did not warrant good results. The
society encumbered thus with a burdensome membership struggled on against the
odds until the close of the spring term in 1899. V
On the 19th of September, 1900, however, the Clionian leaders met and reorganized
behind closed doors under the new name of Theta Eta. Since that time great care
has been exercised in the selection of new members, only collegiate students being ad-
mitted and not all of these. For two years the society has met weekly for the devel-
opment of literary appreciation and for practice in debate. And unusual success has
attended its efforts. i
On the 15th of December, 1890, the Theta Etas met with the J asperians and organ-
ized the Debating League which has encouraged the inter-state debates, the results of
which have been a credit to the University.
Besides its help in student enterprises the Theta Eta Society has already sent out
men and women well equipped for active service to the state, and it will prepare yet
many more, for it is in league with every line of literary work that goes to make well
rounded men and women, and a university strong at home and abroad.
During the past ten years there has been no backward trend, and there is now no
element of weakness visible that forecasts defeat in the future. The Theta Eta
Literary Society has developed much but it has not yet attained its zenith of power
and glory. A later time will witness that.

sitions was one from lihner Spensley to wear hloomer overalls to classes. A meet-
ing was called forthe 23dof November. l". XV. Jones presiding. G. R. Douglass
was elected l'resident, pro tem and business was taken up at once. In alater meeting
the 'A Rare l'niversit,y Bruins." was seleeted and the society was the josh of the lfniver-
sity until its present name was adopted, There were twenty eharter members, all good
and lively fellows. VV. J. lfuller was the first President. and Clyde Iiing the first Sec-
retary. lfor the rest, of the year. Rohertts Rules were in eonstant. use. During the
following years, the membership increased eonsiderahly and good work was done.
Une of the institutions of the society is the Nestorian Record in which all the jokes
and happenings are chronic-led. The best. editor that it has ever had was Carl
Crothers, who used to keep ns all laughing at his jokes.
As is true ot' most all societies, some tirouhle must take plaee and ours Caine over
the indiscriminate admittance of members, hut the lesson has heen learned and
everything is progressing nic-ely.
Vile have always taken a prominent part in at.hlet.ies. In 1900 the Tridentias
challenged all the societies to an eight-man relay raee for a mile. The other societies
failed to accept, however. so we challenged them to a mile relay raee with four men,
hut this was not accepted, as they knew we were too fast for them. Among our ath-
letes were Connie Collins, Gerald Douglas, lfrank lidwards and Mark Meyers. Last
year we had several men on the track team and a baseball nine which won several

VVe read, before our eyelids dropt their shade,
'T he Legend of Good WOH1GI1,, long ago
Sung by England's bard of song,
Who made his singing sweet and low.
" How eagerly we sought to strike
Into that wondrous track of dreams again !
But no two dreams are alikef'
And, 'K all words though cull'd with choicest art,
Failing to give the bitter of the sweet,
W ither beneath the palate, and the heart
Faints, faded by its heat." l
7 IS true words fail and wither when we strive to tell the legend of thirteen
'K good maidens who not many years ago, in room eleven of East Hall, linked
their hearts together with the silver cord of friendship and welded the
y chain thus formed into the circle of T.B.D. And ever since, there has
been locked in the treasure-box of the Vniversity of South Dakota the charmed and
mystic circle of thirteen.
But the circle has not remained unchanged. The five years that are gone since its
beginning have taken with them many of the links, for each link is a heart and each
heart means a life of which the world has need and not all their spheres of usefulness
can be always near each other. And the years have added, too, many new links to
the chain, for there must always be thirteen.
How entrance is gained to the circle only those who enter know. Some say its
easier to get out than in, but we say not, for we maintain that once within the circle
no link is ever free from it again. Though it may be separated from the circle the
silver cord still binds it to the other links.
Of the links that have formed the circle, varied are their characters a.nd names
and various their talents. Nine are alumnae of the University of South Dakota. Five
have become the hearts of new homes, many are still the heart and life of the dear old
homes, from which they have come to join the circle and to which they have returned.
Five are endeavoring to fulnll the vows of T.B.D. in other halls of learning. Eight
are training the minds of the young in the state of their Alma Mater. In all there
have been thirty links, Only two of the original ones are now in the circle. Nothing
need be said of the present members of the circleg they need no introduction to the
readers of this book.
And the object? For the entire circle-Fun, and for each link,-
'Cruth-to be and not to seem,
Beauty-in character and life,
Developmentsinto perfect womanhood.

Alpha Phi Alpha History
O Jasper and Nestor were born two sons. The elder was Tridentiag the
younger Alpha Phi Alpha. And when Jasper became old and suspected the
end of life, he desired both his sons to be present. Now the elder hap-
. pened to be at hand-not having yet proceeded into the world-but he
sent for Alpha Phi Alpha, who ruled in another land. Alpha Phi Alpha came,
bringing as a friend Theta Eta, and having twelve stalwart followers of whom Peter
of Canistota was the leader. V
The arrival of Alpha Phi Alpha occasioned some uproar and Theta Eta proved to
be no friend. Soon, however, A. P. A. returned to his 1' satrapy " and began prepara-
tions for his stormy career and gathered about him the choicest forces in the land.
A short time suHiced for organization. Then Alpha began his ascent. Periods of
trial and misfortune followed. Scarcely did the comrades themselves comprehend
the lofty purposes of their leader and little did they know of the success that was to
crown their efforts. Parasang after parasang they plodded on and many were the
difficulties that beset them on the way. The eloquence of the faithful ones no less
than of the leader was time and again necessary in order to rouse the comrades.
At this point it may be added that the above fragment is all that has come down
to us, of the history of A. Phi A. by an ancient historian. What remains is a poor
attempt of a more modern historian, basing his efforts on the results of recent re-
search, to complete the history begun by his illustrious brother.
It has been found that those sturdy comrades held in high esteem their noble
standard of lavender and pink, upon which were written the words, Virtus, Amicitia.,
Veritas. And wherever the fortune of battle led them they stood as one man facing
They were often ridiculed because of the fewness of their numbers, and on one
occasion were denied admittance to 'a Council of the Nations' But far from despair-
ing they journeyed on striving to accomplish by means of a few, what most men fail
in doing with many. And with hopes bright for the future, with assurances of lasting
renown we find the Alpha band today climbing up the toilsome paths of the lofty
mountain, Fame, whose summit they shall adorn.

The Debating League
The immediate cause of the formation of the Debating League was an invitation
from the Philomathian Literary Society of the University of Iowa to meet it in a
joint debate. The matter was taken up by the Student Association, but so little
interest was manifested that it was found necessary to have a more compact organ-
On December 15, 1901, the Jasperian and Theta Eta Societies met in joint session
and adopted aeonstitution which united them in the Debating League of the Univer-
sity of South Dakota. Wfilliam Wfilliamson, J r., was unanimously elected President
and Stella Boot, Secretary. L '
The compact already forwarded by the Philomathian Society was adopted and a
question for disputation selected. J. F. J arson, WV. G. Wacldle, and C. C. Caldwell,
who had already been chosen by the Student Association, were made the represent-
atives of the League. Much interest centered in this debate as it was the first one
of its kind that had occurred for a number of years. l
The evening for the contest CApril 8, 19015 came at last. There was a hush
of suspense among the close friends of the speakers. The feeling seemed to be prev-
alent that they would not rise to the occasion and that Messrs. Buffuin, Albert and
Martin, the Iowa representatives, would simply sweep them off their feet. But. the
ability with which they pressed home their points and inet every onset of their op-
ponents was not only a surprise to the audience but proved thatthe University could
hold its own with much larger institutions. 7
The annual election of May 11, 1901, placed J. F. Larson in the chair as President
and Miss Esther Gunderson as Secretary. Nothing was accomplished during the
spring in securing meets for the next school year. -
As soon as school opened in the fall, the President renewed the correspondence
and secured from the University of North Dakota a proposition for a joint debate.
The matter was taken up by the League and Caldwell, 1Villiamson and Newcomb
were appointed to draw up a compact, which, with a number of modifications, was
accepted by both parties. Brookings had already signified her willingness to engage
the League in a similar contest.
The harmony which had hitherto characterized the League was broken by an
attempt to amend the constitution in such a way as to vest the power of the League
in a Board of Control. After an animated debate the amendment was voted down.
This resulted in the resignation of the President and the subsequent election of Nor-
man Larson to fill the vacancy. The craft seemed again to be sailing on smooth
waters. The League once more got down to business and elected Larson, New-
comb, VVilliamson, Caldwell, VVaddle and N. P. Larson as its representatives for the
On January 21, 1902, the debaters all resigned in order that the new societies which
had been invited to join the League might have an opportunity to be represented on
the teams. No sooner had the Tridentia and Nestorian societies been incorporated
into the League than the old question of a Board of Control bobbed up again, this
time in the form of a resolution. The only objection to the resolution, as now
presented, grew out of the unlimited powers which it gave the Board in the matter
of selecting speakers. It was contended that unless the Board saw fit to hold pre-

liminary debates the League ought to select its own debaters. An amendment to
this effect prevailed. But at a special meeting, lfebruary 1. 1901, the promoters
of the election of speakers by the Board of Control were in the ascenclency and
this amendment was stricken out. By this time it was clear that the interests of de-
bating demanded that a settlement should be reached. The lovers of popu-
lar initiative who believed that they should have a voice in the selection
of their representatives, by a preliminary debate or otherwise, now quietly took a
back seat and the Board of Control proceeded to transact the business of the League.
Caldwell, Newcomb, and Moody were selected for the North Dakota debate and
Waddle, Larson and Jones to meet Brookings. These are all men of ability and
will acquit themselves with credit. The faculty members of this Board are Dr. C. M.
Young and Dean Sterling. Their, good judgment and large acquaintance with de-
bating especially qualify them for this position.

Y. M. C. A. History
HE first meeting of the University Young Men's Christian Association was
A called to order by Williain Blanchard in the west wing of the University
building, October 28, 1887. The organization at this time perfected, elected
l officers as follows: President. C. W. Brinstadg Vice-president, Williain
Blanchardg Corresponding Secretary. T. lff. Goodellg Recording Secretary, A. B.
Maynard. and Treasurer, E. D. Hawkins.
Six of the thirteen charter members had previously been inembers of a flourishing
Association at the University of Chicago. Consequently the organization of the
Christian forces of our institution into a compact body for aggressive work was their
first endeavor. These first years were prosperous ones, and the organization flour-
ished. But it was not until 1803 when delegates were sent to the Lake Geneva Con-
ference that the Association became thoroughly well organized.
Arnold Davis, John Merril, and Louis Valentine were the men sent to this Confer-
ence and it was largely through their efforts that the Association was placed upon its
present substantial basis. Bible and Mission classes were at this time organized and
a lecture course established. The membership was rapidly increased and the Associa-
tion was brought to occupy a more prominent place in the life of the University.
The recent history of the Association is too generally known among the present
students to demand narration in detail. The leaders of '93 and '94 who gave such
a strong impetus to Association work, were succeeded in following years by a younger
class of students. Thus the movement lost some of the ground it had previously
In the summer of '98, C. C. Caldwell was sent as a delegate to the Lake Geneva
Conference. In '99 four men were sentg C. C. Caldwell, R. A. Anderson, J. B.
Shouse and D. H. Boot. The result of the training at Lake Geneva soon became evi-
dent in the work of the Association. The Y. M. C. A. became a broader student-
organization, and the last four years have witnessed its ever increasing influence-
Last year its membership reached eighty-three, the highest in its history.
The Association has always manifested an active interest in the inter-collegiate
work of the State. A. L, Davis, '95, was instrumental in organizing the State Asso-
eiation, and was elected its first president. In 1900 C. C. Caldwell, '02, succeeded E.
T. Colton, now of the International Committee, as State College Secretary, and has
served, as such for the past two years.

These are the minutes of the first meeting of the Young WVomen's Christian Asso-
ciation of the University of South Dakota.
Since its organization, t.he Association has continued a thriving society and is now
in a flourishing condition with a membership of over sixty.
VVithin the last two or three years many of the best and most experienced workers
have finished their courses here and have been called elsewhere. leaving much younger
and inexperienced members to take their places. These girls have nobly taken up
the work and through their efforts the Association is growing in interest and meni-
Our first delegate to the Geneva Conference was Miss Caroline Simpson, '97, who
was sent in '94, Each year since then we have sent delegates to this Conference.
The five who went last year have added much to the present interest and enthusiasm
in the work as have also the twenty-one girls of the Association who were members
of the State Convention held at Yankton this year. VVe were also represented by
one delegate, Miss Esther Gunderson, at the recent InternationalConvention of Stu-
dent Volunteers which was held at Toronto, Canada.
The Y. VV. C. A. library which, though small, is well selected, is a great help to the
Bible and Mission study classes. The Association room has been very prettily fur-
nished by members and friends of the Association and here the week-day Bible and
Mission study classes hold their meetings. The attendance at the Sunday afternoon
.ievotional meetings, which are held in the east parlor of East Hall, has been nearly
twice as large this year as during any previous year.
The Association has become established on a firm basis and is now one of the fac-
tors of the University life. Each year Witnesses its increasing membership and wid-

W4 Little Spnrifrn, published by the .lasperizni Literary Society. This was
an active little sheet but was destined to a transient existence. A more
3 representative organ was needed to keep pace with the progress ol' the
school. The Student Association early took up the matter :md resolved to publish
Ha paper by the students audfor the students." This was the beginning of the
present Volantc. The first issue made its appearance in November. 1887. with H.
S. Houston, '88, at t-he head of the l'Iditorial Board.
lfor a. number of years it was issued once a month. The idea seemed to prevail
that as many as possible should be given an opportunity to sit in its sanetum, for we
find a new Editorial Staff in charge every three months.
In 1891 the cumbersome Board of Managers gave place to a single individual and
the Editor-in-Chief was given a looser reign. This change centralized the manage-
ment and gave greater etliciency. Instead of holding otlice for only three months
they were elected for one year, which was also a decided advantage.
'Under T. Mack Vinson, '95, and A. L. Davis, '95, the Volrmtc blossomed out into a
bi-weekly. The boys had a good appreciation of what should constitute a college
paper and in the course of the year got out an excellent volume. During the next
six years it continued to expand in circulation and popularity.
1900 found J. F. Larson at the editorial helm with B. H. Morrison as Business
Manager. Mr. Larson made a good record for the year and was re-elected in the
spring COD, this time with C. C. Caldwell as Business Manager. The plan of the
paper was now largely changed both as to form and contents. Under the progres-
sive management of these gentlemen it passed from a semi-monthly to a weekly.
The literary department- was discarded and an attempt. made to run it on a purely
newspaper basis, This change while looked upon with some scepticism at first has
proved quite successful.
The Students' Handbook is issued yearly by the Christian Associations for the ben-
etit of new students. The last to make its debut is the Covoric. This is a handsome
volume of 200 pages, edited and published by the Junior class.

the remaining number to be divided among the other four scliools. The following
year the result of the points scored was much the same, but tl1e jealousy had ll1Cl'Q3.SGCl
so 11111011 that the University of South Dakota wisely withdrew fl'O11l the Association.
Since that ti111e we have been having dual 11160118 wit11 other state universities and
colleges in which we have always bee11 victorious. Our records have 159011 excellent.
Last year outside of tl1e " Big Nine " we excelled all other colleges and universities i11
the United States in the quarter-111ile run, the broad and high jumps, tl1e low hurdles,
the pole vault and the hundred yard dash.
Football has also become a leading feature in University of South Dakota athletics.
Our first great success was in the year following the 111emorab1e Mitchell 111eet. In that
year We Won six out of seven games, one of these being the famous Nebraska game.
During tl1e past year we won six out of eight games.
Our baseball tean1 is also worthy of special mention. At the present time there are
more good players contesting for places on the "Varsity team" than we have known for
years. Basket ball is a new feature i11 University of South Dakota athletics. The first
two games were played in the past season. Judging from the amount of training and
the results, one cannot doubt that as far as material is concerned we have a very
good team, and that with a sufficient amount of training we can next season vindicate
the fact that the University of South Dakota has one of the best teams in the West.
The ladies' physical culture classes also have basketball teams that have done
very excellent Work and are deserving of highest praise.
If this necessary part of the University life, viz. athletics, depends largely upon the
loyalty and interest Of the students, We have good reason to believe that in this re-
spect a bright future is before us. .

15. All efforts of the COYOTE to obtain from Mr. C. E. Besancon the facts regarding his
life proved futile. Consequently it devolved upon one who looked upon " Bessie" with a mingled
feeling of admiration and awe, and who was more or less intimately associated with him, to write
his biography. The inability' to reach Mr. Besancon through the mails is undoubtedly due to
the fact that his duties as Boom Editor of the Pierre Free Press, preclude any possibility of ar-
resting, even momentarily, his attention by anything less than a red Hag or a proposal to move
the Capital. ,
VVhen and where Mr. Besancon was born is not known. It is sufficient to say that he is of
French extraction and was born, So far as is known, only three events of importance happened
previous to his entering the University, viz: lst. A visit to the great wheatfields of North
Dakota. 2nd. The following summer he spent near Salem, S. D., studying German by the con-
versation method. 3rd, He learned to "stick" type.
His career in the University was a varied one. He was a chronic fusser, a football player,
an orator, track team manager, was a J asperian and afterward became a charter member of the
Tridentia Society. He usually carried the H makings" and never chewed anything cheaper than
f'Pieper." He had the alloted number of college love affairs.
After obtaining his Ph.B. degree, Mr. Besancon became associated with his father in the pub-
lication of the " Blunt Advocate." Later he became editor of the " Pierre Free Press," which
position he still holds.

Echoes From the Past
ff HOW the Cannon Was Stolen"
CARL GUNDERSON ,90.
T was in November, 1888, at the close of the presidential campaign, in which
W Harrison and Cleveland were opposing candidates. There were ardent republi-
cans in the class of '89. They had not forgotten the defeat of their party in
'84, Whatever' the result of the coming election might be they must be pre-
pared. A council of war was called in the third story of the main building.
Doors were locked, transoms closed. On this occasion even the Senior voices were
so subdued that the K' ears of the walls " failed to hear their plotting. A Junior and
4' Prep " were called in to assist in carrying out the plans. All were agreed that
the victory of either party would be celebrated by firing the old cannon-a relic
of ancient warfare and an object of much contention between Vermillion and ad-
No Fourth of July celebration had ever been considered properly launched until
the old cannon's boom had shaken the town from bluff to river. The decree of
the secret council was that the " curfew must not ring" if Cleveland was elected,
but if Harrison was elected the old cannon must be made to sound its approval in
no uncertain tone.
Every detail of the plot was carefully worked out. The cannon was in the yard
of a citizen. It was secured by means of a heavy chain wound around the carriage
and through the wheels, the ends connected by means of a strong lock. A committee
was sent to a friendly hardware merchant. He simply smiled but asked no questions
when the loan of his entire assortment of keys was requested. And he did likewise
when a file was purchased.
At the appointed time during the night preceding the election day eight students
approached the location of the Vermillion battery. The poodle dog gave the alarm
which was apparently taken up by every cur in town. The citizen stepped out,
saw the moon shining brightly, then he knew the cause ofthe dog concert.
Guards were thrown out in erelw direction. The lock was tried with every key
in the assortinent without auail. The file was brought into action, the sound rnufiied.
WOI'Cl was finally sent out to the guards to " close up." lflight shoulders were put
to the wheels and the old cannon started on one of its periodical trips. The battery
moved quietly out onto Main street, east to University street, then north to the
main building. Up to this point every detail had been carried out, but now the
most diflicult feat of engineering must be done. A vanishing point for a cannon
must be found. The council was again called to order. 'All suggestions were care-
fully considered. The one adopted was that the cannon should be dismounted
and sunk into the bowels of the earth beneath the walk leading from the main
building to East Hallg the carriage was to be taken apart and scattered to the four
winds in the fiower garden to the northwest of the main building.
This plan was carried out in accordance with the decree of the council. At 2 a. rn.
on election day the old cannon was apparently wiped off from the face of the earth.
The next rumor had it that lilk Point people had stolen the cannon during the
night. Eight students smiled and nothing more.
Harrison was elected. During the evening following this announeement, eight
students quietly gathered up the different parts of the cannon, put them
together and prepared for action. Twcnty-one rounds of powder had been secured
and firing began without any one. save the eight students, being aware of there
being a cannon nearer than lilk Point. The first shot came like a thunderbolt from
a clear sky. Boom followed boom in rapid succession until the "boys" from
town, feeling somewhat outdone, decided to recapture the caimon. The demand
from them to the student party to surrender the cannon was unheeded. iVhen
they tried to take it by force, that little hand clung desperately to the cannon. Nor
could it be taken from them until a fifty-foot rope was attached to it thus giving
about fifty men and boys an opportunity to pull the cannon back to its moorings.

Firelight pictures -memories of my college days at the dear old 'Varsity-carry
me back to the day in early September, 1891, whenI came to the little city on the
bluff , a stranger. My mental cinematograph presents a vivid picture of that distress-
ing hill with its slippery, yellow mud and the long Walk with my future room-mate
to West Hall. I can still seem to feel my keen disappointment at its resemblance
to some prison and my appreciation of its then current by-name " soap factory."
That night I first knew the bitterness of a homesick heart.
Such was the first day but each one succeeding presented my surroundings in a
brighter hue until I came to resent ridicule of the old brick dormitory. As a tenant
"THEY HAD PLANNED A PICNIC UP THE RIVER,"
I became imbued with a tenant's fealty and some of the most pleasant recollections
of my college life are centered round its Walls.

HEY come back to me, these old college cronies, and sit by me when I am
alone and speak to me out of the silence of the Past, just as they did when
we were light hearted boys together. Though many years have come and
gone since then, carrying with them many of the joys of younger days, yet
how kindly does Time seem to have dealt with these old friends, for they come
back unburdened by the Years, and wearing their old happy manner and faces.
Some of them come often. One of them comes oftenestg a pale-faced youth,
the nonpareilof manly grace and beauty,-so might Milton and Sidney have been
when they were boys. The gladsome inhuence of his bright presence is over me
still like the breath of violets, and again I vow to make myself worthy of such a
companion. Another whose urbanity and suavity of manner, insheathing an adroit
finesse of compliment, bespoke the budding ambassador, comes in ghostly dignity
and discourses as of old of mighty empires fallen, and of the pomp and splendor of
courts. Another, a kindly, keen-witted Scotch lad, proud of his native Scotia,
comes often. Again I fear the lightning sword-play of his wit, and grow
merry at his sparkling sarcasm. And still another comesg one whose memory is
ineffable. Him the Angel of Death in distant lands overshadowed with its wings.
And yet can I say that he is gone, when he thus comes back to me, and with his
coming, I feel the peace of goodness and truth? And with these comes many another,
the burden of whose words are the pleasant yesterdays that look backward now
with a smile.
And when Fancy thus throws open the mystic portals to Memoryland, I am
again in a world of romance transfigured with the light of youthful visions. For what
fabrics of glory were woven in the loom of our hopes in those bright joy-brimmed
days when a beautiful faith in the Future gilded it with the happy lustre of fancied
triumphs. Then vaulting ambition had whispered that we should one day be
numbered among earth's memorable sons, and be the theme of I-Ionor's tongue,-
alas, how like the fairy gold that turns to dust have been these hopesf And in
what an ideal world did we live, when with thoughts SL'll1i7lllllllllg with the dialnon l-
dust of classic lore, we went bumping our sublime heads against the stars, and
reelied not of the weary world of toil and strife tliut lay beyond the little college-
realni. In that springtiine ol' the heart zunl soul, when we held the tenor of our
way along the cool, sequestered vale ol' college life, there were quiet. gleainsol' hzrppi-
ness Sueh as the glowing heights that we nmy lmve sezrled in lifter years, are not
touched with. For then we were 'A in love with life, l' :ind mptured with the world.
The master-chords of our being were stirred :ls with zi mighty disapuson, whence
deep spiritual echoes flung fan' out into the lfuture, eonie tln'onging bac-k upon our
memories. Those days, rife with so inueh of sunshine, and durkeiied with so little
of shadow, were gala days and luiye left ai sunset splendor of themselves. Yet over
and above the patriinony ol' spiritual XV1LI'lllt-ll und sunshine thus bequeathedg higher
than the gladness and poetry of life then felt: beyond :ind over any other treasure
of recollect-ed happiness, arethe sweet lIl0IllUl'lC'SHl' the old eollege friends who eonme
back from the happy past. 41
So may you ever eoine buck, for with your coming there springs ai l'0ll21lSS2lllCC
of faith and hope, bidding ine pluck new inspiration for the duties that crowd
before me. Colne back, old friends, for with your coming what ar resurrection is
there of the old life so shadowy and pezic-el'ul, yonder in the Past. Colne back,
dear hearts, and abide with nie, for with your presence, there falls upon me the
olden golden glory of the days that are no more.

Bright is the Sophomore, happy and free,
Never a trouble encumbers his brain,
Never a tear on his fair love's cheek,
Nothing but smiles as he presses a kiss,
All is enchantment and heaven-born bliss.
Sweetest to him are the hours of night,
Goblins he fears not, but nymphs he adores,
Off to the dance like a rocket he goes,
Proud as a peacock in feathers galore
As he e'er glides o'er the white powdered floor.
Swelled is his head with all knowledge profound,
Naught in this whole blooming world but he knows
Senior, or Junior, they're not in it now,
More in a minute he knows than they both
Pardon me, sir, but this is on his own oath.
Not to be conquered, he knows no defeat,
Bravest of heroes and stoutest of foes,
Wielder of words of such ponderous length,
Silly they knock you, dumbfounded you land,
Should your audacity Venture a stand.

UNDER GRADUATES OF THE COLLEGE,
he Freshmen Banquet
Of all events that have occurred in college circles this year, the lfrcshmcn banquet- wascer-
tainly the most interesting and has created more college spirit and newspaper talk than any
other fest-ival. Not only did the lf'rcslmieu banquet and entertain the Juniors in a handsome
manner, but they awoke the green-eyed monster in the breasts ol' the Seniors and threw them
into such a rage that they determined to destroy what they could not stow away in their capa-
eious ruminating organs. The famousvtcalves " of last year do not at all compare with these
hungry beasts. For stealth in the execution of clandestine purposes they have few rivals.
While the merry ring of laughter mingled with gentle voices in the dining parlor, a ghost-
like hand stretched forth from a spectral form and seized in its claw-like clutch the glorious symbol
of Freshdom that hung in a beautiful fcstoon across the glittering corridor. Silent as the night-
wiud and ghastly asa rcawakened corpse thc form slipped out from the window as mysteriously
as it had come. One look of horror, a determined expression, followed with a qnicktwinkle of
the eye was the only answer given by the jovial lJtlll4lllf'l'-CYS.
Dinner was finally over and the last lingcrcr at the tables had joined his companions in the
parlors. Speech, speech, Dr. Young, spccch! came from a score of throats. The dignified
Doctor, who is fathering the most democratic class in school, made a happy response. Speech,
speech, Olson, speech! again rang out and thc veteran of a score of fierce contests stepped for-
ward mid the applause of his fellows.
"Come on, boys!" .X dive for the door, a mad scramble outside and a voice in the agony
of desperation-" I, I, re-re-po-por-porter, Yo-vo-la-lame" and behold a kicking, foaming Senior
was being dragged in in triumph. And what a spectacle! Hair standing at right angles., eyes
rolling madly about, chest heaving violently for breath, clothes delapidated and torn and mouth
wide open, trying between gasps to " explain ". The alarm was given and more Seniors appeared
to succor their hapless classmate only to meet with a similar fate.
Morning dawned bright and beautiful. The Regents were in the city and came to chapel,
so did the Seniors, gorgeously bedecked in their stolen booty. The Juniors smiled, the Sopho-
mores andFreshmen were silent, and the law students, who had allied themselves with the " Naugh-
ty Two 's," grinned with an air of great superiority and smacked their lips with evident satisfac-
Chapel exercises passed oft very quietly. The President had spoken with unusual mild-
ness, but a storm was brewing that soon burst with cyclonic fury. The victorious "crowing"
of the Seniors and Laws Soon gave way to mad yells and tcrritlic scrambling. In the confusion
that ensued, pile heaped upon pile. The halls were filled with one huge, heaving mass of strug-
gling students who tugged, pushed and crushed, regardless of faculty or Regents. The gawdy
neckties were strangling the Seniors until their faces grew black, collar buttons flewand collars
and shirt bosoms were unceremoniously torn from the necks of their unhappy possessors. The
ladies crowded 'round and cheered wildly, some of the Profs. stood aghast, others seemed amused.
A moment more and the "rough and tumble" was out upon the open. Madder and still
more mad grew the contest. Every lull was but the signal for a desperate onset. Thus the
battle raged until coats were without seams, trousers without suspenders, and vests without
backs. Sheer exhaustion alone put an end to the struggle. The 'fNaughty Two 's" sauntered
sullenly to their rooms for repairs, the Sophs scattered, the Laws sought a place of hiding and
the Junior-Freshmen forces remained in possession of the Held. Great was the contest and
greater still the calm that followed it. Let the memory of it pass down to the remotest generation
and let posterity sing the praises of its heroes! '
Julie's Aunt Visits the University
Last wek me an Ezry thot we ud go down to the Unvursty and se our nece who wil grajate
frum ther next yer. She 's 21. good studius gurl who desurves the vantiges her foks an us is given
her Qme an Ezry is helpin' putt her thru skul.j So we thot we ud go down ther sence we had
never bin ther yet. Ezry he didn 't want to go, he sed he never had no desir to mingle with them
foks what noed so much bout looks. He didn 't se as ther boks did 'em much good nohow fer
he never seed one o' them prolfesurs yet who cud tel him anything bout runnin a farm. The rel
reson Ezry did not want to go wus becus he allays lels sort o' akard in perlite sesity, an he thot
he 'd meet sum 0' it down ther. But I told him he had no Cal to feel that way bout it fer our
lzmrm is vallied at as much as eny in the conty an we had allaysbenrespeektebulfoks. Mor
respecktebul then sumo' them stujunts judgin frum what Julie tels 0 'sum 0 'them-spesuly the
male ones. Wel, aftur I talked to him bout it fer a wek he finaly sed held go. So the next
mornin we got up at 4- o 'clock a. m. an got the work don brite an early so 't we cud git a good
start. Vile went in the lumber waggin becus Ezry had a pig to take to town. I wor mi blak
alpacky, the one I 've had fer nigh onto 12 yr. I haint hed it on sence I went to An .loneses
funerl, thet wus 2 yr. ago Com next month. I splashed a tear onto it thet last tim I wor
it an it wus sich at ehore to git it out thet I bin fraid to wer it sence. But I thot this wus
a it ocason to wer it fer I wanted thet them colidge foks shud no thet I hed good c-los if I
minded to wer lem. I bot thet dres with mi buter an eg monney so 't I allays hev bin sum-
mat proud of it. I tuk the pack quilt thet An 's sister Marthy giv me fer a Vwedin presnnt
when I wus married an putt it over mi lap fer a lap roab to kep the dust olden midres, blak
allays specs up so.
VVel, we got to the town bout 11 a. m. but I eudn't git Ezry to go up to the unversty
nohow, so I left him to do the tradin' an I went up to visit with rni nece. I went up to the
dormtory what they cal Est Hal, wher she boards at. I rapped severl times but no budy
oppened the dorg I thot they must al be studyin' alful hard not to heer. Prety soon a likely
lokin' gurl com ont. I told her I wanted to se mi neeeg she told me to ring the bel an the maid
wud cal her, I didn 't se no bel but she pushed a litle plug in the dor Casin' an went away say-
in the maid wud com prety soon. After whil the maid com, I didn 't zackly se why they
caled her thet fer she loked jest lik eny other woman ceptin she hed on a white cap an apern
an loked Clener'n most foks does. I told her I wud lik to se mi nece, she tok me down to the
set-in' rom un sed to w:i,l1e l3llCl' til mi new vom. Al'l'e1' whil I heerd Julie eomin ' down the hal,
I noed her walk, I cud tel it eny wher. I wus kindy fearecl wen I wus zz setin' ther alone in thet
big rom thet Julie wud be shamed 0' her ol aint, eorse I noed it wasn 't in Julie 's nzlter to be
thot way hut ther 's no tc-lin Whitt c-hunge 0' envirnment wil do to I'oks, spesuly yong foks.
But Julie didn 't think 0' nothin' but how glad she wus too se me, :-she jest huged nie lik as el'
she hedn 't seed me fer 10 yr., but it hed lain ony bout 3 months. Then we went up to Julie 's
rom an talked til diner tim. The diner bel wus the querest sondin hel I ever lierrrcl. Julie sed
it wus rung bi Leektristy but I didn 't se why I,ec'ktl'isty shud ring il bel so difernt l'1'I,ll1l eny
other nmn. I wnrnlt mueh stuck on the diner we et-law, it wer no I,1etter'n what we hex'
to hum ever day 0' the wek, to say nothin bout the f-okin nl' it. I wus sum disipinted in
it fer I thot mebbe they'd hex' sumthin good thet I cud git the rec-ect to but they didn 't hex'
nothin thet I wanted a rec-ect to. I thot to miself whil I wus 11 eatin it thet Julie hed lerned
sum things to hum thet she 'd never lern to the skul. But then I spose them lerned foks isn 't-
so pertikler bout what goes into ther stlnnicks as what goes into ther heds.
After dinerJulie sed we udgo to se the eznnpus an the hildings. We walked arond in the yard
awhil an loked at the trees an posy beds an sich things. I kep getin, :mkshus to se the campus
hut Julie wus so husy showin me the trees an things thet I ges she fergot bout it-lest wise she
never sed no mor bout it an I didn 'ti lik to remind her ol' it fer I didn 't want to peer lik I hed
never seed sich things 'afore. We visited a good number o' the rooms in them bildings, we saw
a good meny things difernt frum what I ever seed afore. In sum 0' the roms they semed to be
furiners fer they jabered away lik they wus crazy an I eudn 't Inak hed or tale of what they
wus a sayin. I cudn 't jest make out how them skolers in sum 0' them roms lerned
nothin fer they never resited wunst, the techer jest set behind his desk an talked the hul tim
an them skolers rote al the whil he wus at talkin. I shudn't think they'd be so disrepeetful
as to rite al the time the techer's a talkin. VVe went to the muzeem. It is a grate place. I never
seed so meny things together afore in mi lif. Ther wus al kinds o 'ded bests and birds stufed an
it made chils run up mi spine to se them ded bruts a. starin at me with them ther glas ies 0'
thern an ther wus stuns rond in cases bi the ear lod. It beets me what they want to cluter up
ther muzeem with alot of stuns fer. In sum 0 ' them roms we Went into I thot fer awhil thet we wus
in the kichun fer the foks in therul hed on aperns, both the males an females. I thot to myself frum
the smel thet I smeld in ther thet no Wunder they hed sich diners as they hed. But Julie sed they
wusn't kichuns thet they wus labertorys, sum 0' them wus kemstry labertorys an sum
was fisickes an sum wus other kinds, I never noed afore thet the fisiekes we tak wus made in
sich places. I made it at pint not to ask questions thet wud show mi igneronce fer I didn't
want Julie to be ashamed o' me so I jest held mi tong an used mi ies an ers al I cud but ther
wus lots o ' things in them labertorys thet I wud likd to hey noed bout.
When we wus comin out 0 ' one o ' them bildings we met a man what Julie sed wus the pres-
dent of the unvursty but I' didn 't se but' what he loked jest lik a nordnary man, I notised thet
bout al o' them proffesurs thet they loked jest lik eny body else. I thot meby so murfh eddi-

The Senioris Tale
We were Freshmen together, were Lou and I,
Ah well can I now remember,
How we met on the campus, in passing by,
That eve in the warm September.
She was walking alone with her hat in hand
And I came along unattended,
Introduction or none, I had plenty of sand
And bowed as I greetings extended.
Did she blush? I don't know, but the flash of her eye
Was rich with the twinkling of laughterg
She was witty and bold, she was coy yet not shy,
And I was her slave ever after.
We were always together from that time on,
At lectures and social occasions,
And our life was a dream like a midsummer dawn
Untouched by terrestrial relations.
I don't know how she felt when she heard people talk,
We cared not for gossip's opinion:
We discussed all the sages from Plato to Locke
And lived in a classic dominion.
Ah, the pathway of learning is bordered with flowers,
And swift speed the years when in college,
And at once we were Juniors and counted the hours,
That held us from Senior knowledge.
I remember that ever1ing we strolled out alone
To mourn o'er the coming vacation,
And I swore by the moon, for my heart weighed like stone,
That this was our last separation.
And now-pass a light for my pipe has gone out-
I laugh at those old tribulations.
You expect soon to hear of a Wedding, no doubt,-
Nay, save your prepared 'gratulations-
For she married a cattleman out on the range
A month from the eve of our parting.
How her Plato and Homer could live through the change
But let's up, for the ball game is starting.

EAST HAIAL GIRLS
When the Wednesday hours we number,
And the bright lights at the Hall
Wake the memories that slumber
In the breasts of fussers all,
When the evening toilet's finished,
And the Hall girls, old and young,
Listening for the clang of door bell
Which so oft for them is rung,
Then the manly forms of fussers
Enter at the eastern cloorg
The beloved, the true hearted CPD
Come to fuss it out once more.
They, the young and strong, who cherish
Noble longings for a Wife.
They, the gay and flippant also,
Who find in pleasure all of life.
" Noble longings for a wife."
They, the tall ones and the short ones,
Gather here, a joyous throng,
Give the pretty maid their cards,-then
Here she comes, I hear her song.
To each one comes a Being Beauteous,
Who unto her youth has given,
Even now, the right to love her,
In this Hall which seems a heaven.
With a swift and noiseless footstep, '
Comes that little girl, his love,
Takes the vacant seat beside him
And becomes a cooing dove.
" and she sits and gazes at him. "
And she sits and gazes at him
With her deep and tender eyes, it
Like the stars so bright and twinkling,
- Looking downward from the skies.
Uttered not, yet comprehended,
Is the fusser's eager Wish-
Soft rebukes, in yielding's ended,
Breathing from his lips a kiss.
' Oh, though oft depressed and lonely,
All his fears are passed and done,
When he happily remembers
Such as shepare fussed and Won.

An Hour With Prof t'Ding
Behind a spreading newsy sheet,
Was th' Prof. completely hidden,
A class at mischief hard to beat,
Came in 'fore they were hidden,
For being ever late to class
Most sternly 'd been forbidden.
The Prof. he threw das Blatt away,
And looked into their faces.
Straightway a maiden fair,-ah nay,
'Fore him this question places,
"When shall we move to Science Hall
Which now our campus graces?"
The Prof. with mind on duty bent,
At once to tell, commences,
And all his energies he bent,
To bring it to her senses,
How great the need, how thick the throng
Which in our hall condenses.
How dry-goods boxes oft are used
In which to hear the classes
The reading rooms so much abused,
By thoughtless lads and Iasses,
Must emptied be of fussers vile
Who waste the time which passes.
So we will move I think, forsooth,
Now just as soon as may be,
The girl, a searcher after truth,
And Winsome maid as could be
Begged then to know where they should go
To say Zlzcfir -- Aufgabe.

Professor oft his finger shakes."
Professor did then haste to tell
All he had done to fix it,
That they might have a roomy ell,
Let other people mix it,
They'd have a place Where they could breathe
Said he, or something like it.
The maiden cast her sweet eyes down,
So grave and thoughtful was she,
Her brow contracted to a frown,
Showed sore perplexity.
A lad, one wise beyond his years,
Avoids the dire calamity.
That aught of space should intervene
'Twixt question and the answer.
"I.et's see," says he, "to me doth seem,
Or comes to my remem'brance, sir,
That I have heard one hall alone,
Our campus once adorned, sir."
O happy thought of happy youth,
He oped a flowing fountain
And brought a gushing stream in sooth
From Reminiscence's mountain,
As though it had some mystic charm
To wrap a spell about one.
For did the Prof. e'en pause for breath,
Came questions in a shower
And led him on to kill to death
That whole ecstatic hour.
And I've been told, though well you know,
That truth's not yet in flower.
That oft the rogues their watches sought,
But kept them wisely hidden,
Lest by the Prof. they might be caught
And be severely chidden.
For heeding aught from work estranged
In that class was forbidden.
And when they came to recent dates
At last ein wenig' nearer,
Professor oft his finger shakes
To make his meaning clearer.
And while he spoke the hell 'gan ring,
The class 'gan breathing freer.
The Prof. 'gan for his hook to seek,
What else would you expect him,
The naughty classmates sat so meek
You would not e'en suspect 'em.
The Prof. their tasks assigned and urged
That they had better get 'em.

The shades of night were falling fast,
As through Vermillion village passed
A youth who bore 'spite all advice,
A banner with the worn device,
A Fusser I
His brow was glad, his eye beneath,
Flashed like a faulchion from its sheath,
And like a silver clarion rung
The accents of that Well known tongue,
A Fusser I
In a happy home he saw the light
Of household fire gleam warm and bright
Around the fire the family sat
And from his lips-a groan at that
"Try not to pass!" the old man said,
Dark lowered his temper overhead,
The roaring youngsters' eyes oped wide
And low the mother's voice replied,
"A Fusser l"
A Fusser 1
"O stay," the maiden said, "and rest
Thy weary head upon this breast!"
A tear stood in her bright blue eye
But still Pa answered, "Girll oh fiel
A Fusser 1"
"Beware of Prexy's with ring gaze,
Beware the awful coming days
This was the father's last Good night
A voice replied far in the night
At eight o'clock as campusward
The "turned down" youth the snow did ford,
Saw grinning through the oft passed gate
A lad who called to sister Kate,
"A Fusser 1"
A Prof. that morning heard a sound
And on his desk a note he found.
"Pa" in a way which left no doubt
Had wrote quite wrathily about
A Fusser l
And then to Prexy stern and cold,
The poor dear youth-no longer bold
Was ta'en to hear his sentence said
W'hich now and ever cut quite dead

A Bit of "Paternalism,'
Freedom of speech and freedom of the press is realized in no way for college
students as in the modern "Annual" Here, unhindered and unhampered, student
thought and student sentiment find spontaneous expression. Here honorary dis-
tinctions are lost sight of, and all meet on a common level of human interest and
personal worth. "Scholastic dignity " here has no defense against the good-natured
raillery that characterizes this publication. Nothing better illustrates the democ-
racy of our society than the relations that obtain between the student and the
faculty of an American University. The professor, worthy of his position, has the
respect of his students, and the deference due him is given without compulsion.
Outside of the class-room and ofhcial relations, the professor and student naturally
come to a common ground of pleasant and helpful social intercourse. The college
annual is distinctively an American product, and would find tolerance in no other
society. It is at once an expression of the freedom and spontaneity, the serious-
ness- and the humor of the student mind, a humorous memorial of student life and
The myth of a Fountain of Youth has led many besides the Spanish explorers
upon a vain and fruitless search for its fabled waters. Science will probably never
reach the citadel where the secret of life is hidden, but the student, the literary
man, and the teacher long ago discovered the secret of perpetuating the spirit of
youth in the delights and aspirations of their work, in the gracious influences of
their associations. The pursuit of knowledge never ends, and the student with
whitened head pursues with youthful zest the search for truth, always youngin spirit
and fancy. In such is the spirit of Holmes, who at three-score wrote 1- '
4' Has any old fellow got mixed with the boys?
" If there has, take him out without making a noise!
"Hang the Almanac is cheat, and the Catalogue's spite!
'fOld Time is a liar! WG,1'C twenty to-night!"
The relation of Class Father to his student family serves rather to identify
him with the student life again than to emphasize the distinctions between youth
and niaturit-y, st.udc-nt and professor. To enjoy the confidence of young n1e11 and
young women in this forniative period of their lives, is at once a privilege and a
responsibility. Il1tC'llGCi1lliLl eonipanionship becomes rnore real and genuine in this
1lf'lUOSI7l10l'O of personal friendship and social contact. The basis of enduring friend-
ship is intelleetual respect. A friend upon whose armor you cannot now and then
break an iiitelleetual spear, or who will not, with knightly alaerity meet you i11 the
lists for an intelleetual joust, is not the one whose friendship will count, for the most
in life. Student friends. and student assoeiatiolis are, of all others, most helpful.
Culture is 11ot a refineinent ol' knowledge, and is not to he expressed merely in ternis
of sel1olarship. It is rather an iIltCllCf,1i3Ll2'Ll l1lll1lU.l1lSlll, unifying. elevating, spiritu-
alizing, uplifting every phaseof life and t1l10Ll,Q,'l1lT,'-llllli real student, atftiitude of mind.
It- has quite as much to do with personal relations and the quality of intellectual
honesty in our relations to each other and the world of actual life, as with the acqui-
sition of knowledge. The friendship and intellectual sy111pat.l1y of one who first
won iny respect i11 the professor chair has heen most helpful and inspiring in
these later years of independent- work and study. These relations are thus of recip-
rocal adyalitage. and confer mutual benefits.
To "my Juniors," witl1 whom l have had the most, cordial and syrnpatlietie

CLARK M. YOUNG.
The Seniors may sing of their orphan home,
Yes, chant to themselves in glee,
And spurn with a toss of their careless heads
The counsel of men, and flee
To regions of darkness, sequestered and lone,
As sterile and hard as an adamant stone.
But the Juniors prefer in their youthful days
A counsellor true and wise,
A " Father " to share in their days of toil,
Who joys in their steady rise,
A patron of truth and ideals high
That Iifteth their souls to the azure sky.
A man among men is our Doctor Young,
Fit form for a senate's hall
Where eloquence Wins both the laurel wreath
And the palm at the Nation's call,
But better, by far, is the part he plays
In modeling '03's for future days.

The dream that has for some years past haunted each succeeding Junior class of
the University has at last assumed tangible form. To the splendid class spirit
developed by the '03's during their Sophomore year must be attributed much of
the enthusiasm and unanimity of feeling that have resulted in the publication of
During the spring months the annual was the one topic of their discussions.
The more tirnerous trembled lest something rash should be undertaken, the bolder
spirits, to Whom nothing seemed impossible, will probably have an opportunity
to tremble at the outcome. I
The class entered upon the arena of college enterprise in an auspicious moment.
The new Science Hall for which the faculty had so long labored Was now a certainty.
The possibility of a law school was no longer the dream of the visionary. Our
athletics had never been more successful and inter-collegiate debating had gained
a foothold. On every hand the expanding University life was calling for something
heroic, for something that should have more than a fieeting existence. And
what could be more happy than the idea of publishing a Junior annual! No sooner
was the project launched than it became the dominant passion of the class. Some
correspondence was done during the summer and at the opening of school the 'O3's
at once turned their attention to the object of their ambition. The work was
thoroughly systematized and outlined in such a way as to give the greatest efficiency.
Figures giving the cost of engraving and printing were secured, then the faculty
and students were canvassed for subscriptions, and the business men called on for
advertisements. As soon as a sufficient amount of money was guaranteed to make
the issue of such a book seem possible, the editorial board set to work in dead earnest
to prepare the material for its contents.
THE COYOTE is not only the first annual that has been put out in the University
of South Dakota but is the Hrst distinctly class annual that has been published in
the state. One, it is true, much smaller and less elaborate, was printed by our
sister University, at Mitchell, last year, but this was the product of the entire col-
lege clepartnient and not of a single class. To the Juniors, then, of the U. S. D.,
belongs the distinction of having had the harclihooil ancl courage to make the
attempt and the ability and tact to carry it to a successful issue. For being the
first, it is probably the largest annual that has ever been issuerl by a school ol' our
The amount of work which it has cost can only be fully realizerl by those in innue-
filiate charge and the compensation for the pains taken will probably not be a laurel
wreath. Sumlry persons have been hit anil sonic will have their revenge. Yet,
once in a eollegelifetiine, thestuflent may be parclonell for letting people sec them-
selves as others see them and to hear themselves as others hear them. HTo each
one as he cleserveth, ancl to each as he hath neezl, " is possibly not so bail after all,
All work has in it some element ol' 1lisappointnient. The sculptor too often looks
with saclness upon the statue ereateml by his geniusg the painter gazes upon his
work of art, paineil by the inaclequaey ol' this expression ol his soul, andthe
poet scans anew his verses only to linrl them full of error. So with the Corormg
its liclitors do not claim for it the imleal, nor anything approaching the perfect, but
shall leave it to future classes with more ol' talent anml genius to bring to perfection
what they have so rumlely begun.
To all of those who have in any way cmitributell to the suec-ess ol' this volume,
the class wishes to extenml a hearty "Thank you." XYe are inclebterl to Misses
Fern McGinnis annl xlmvy Johnson, ol' the Art Department, for some of the sketches
in the Literary clepartinent anwl especially to llr. C. M. Young, our Class Father,
whose sympathy anfl encouragenient have mlone inuc-h to cheer the class on to a happy
and successful termination of its work. CUl1l'l'llJllllU11S by those who are not
members of the class are mluly 4-reeliteml.

The Fair Vermillion
Oh fair Vermillion, in the month ol' May,
When framed in darkest- green
And kissed by setting sun 's departing ray,
The splendor of thy sheen
Is fitting sight for angels to beholdg
But mortals love thee most
Reflecting twilight's rifts ol' scattered gold,
In darkness hall' enclosed.
Forth steals the moon, on tiptoe still and slow-H
Most rude and most unkind-
Then bursts his roguish face up from below,
As il' surprised to find
In darksome dale such sign ol' radiant gleeg
Bright gleams the dripping oar,
Sweet nightingales their treasured song set free-
,'l'is hle from shore to shore.
lYhen frosty nights thy bosom hath c-ongealed,
Bright gleams the flashing steel
In many curves 'round many at circled field,
And many a rousing peal
Ol' joyful laughter cleaves the evening airg
While gliding far, between
Thy wooded banks, some youthful, loving pair
Enjoy thy Charms unseen.
Fair, gentle stream that dreams thy Course along
Accept a. word ot praise!
Accept at tribute for thy soothing song
Well sung in bygone daysg
Oft, when life 's burdens weigh upon the breast
And cause us to despair,
Thy sleepy current lulls the heart to rest
And robs the soul ol' care,
J. F. I,.

Guaranteed in every way. The best constructed
and most durable family steel range in the world.
This range is nu! made of stove pipe iron but ot
the best cold-rolled steel wrought steel and is
lined with Vt inch asbestos and steel linings,
forminga triple wall. Most cheap steel ranges
are made with asbestos linings in back only.
The oven door is very strong and perfectly
balanced and can be opened or closed with ease,
and does not drop with a slam.
The lirebox has an opening in front for feeding
all kinds offuel which makes it much more con-
venient than one which opens at the end, where
the fuel has to be shoved from one end of Hrebox
to the other.
The Range is made to last a lifetime and, as
shown in this cut, weighs 64-5 pounds.
