Hi-stor} oj ’95.
THE thought so often brought before us by our Professor of History,—that history is not so much a record of events as a story of development and progress— comes to my mind as I begin the history of the Class of ’95. It is not necessary, then, for me to indulge in panegyrics upon the generally recognized superiority of this class, or recount in high-flown words the deeds of its members. Moreover, I promise not to allude to them as wonderful beings “ whose classic brows beam with radiant knowledge, whose eyes sparkle with mysterious intellectuality ” as class historians often are tempted to do. Mv only purpose is impartially to note their progress.
Happily, this speaks for itself. The four years spent within the walls of our University have plainly not been in vain. Under its uplifting influence, we have developed from a crude crowd into a bright band, in which, no doubt, may be found many future statesmen, orators, musicians, teachers, house-keepers, and—as for poets —well,—“There is something of poetry born in us each, (though in many, perhaps, it is born without speech.)”
From Freshmen, in the fullest sense of the word, we have developed into intelligent, thoughtful, yet humble-minded Seniors, conscious that,—
“ In us there dwells No greatness, save it be some far off touch Of greatness to know well we arc not great.”
With the genius of hard work, generous views, and high ideals we have faithfully toiled along the way to glory,—the straight paths of learning. That we have some-times wandered away, now to pick a few berries by the roadside, and again in the fields in full chase of some bright butterfly, has served only to make the journey more pleasant. So pleasant, in fact, it has been, that it makes us sad to think that the little paths, grown so dear to us. will soon verge into the wider highways of life. One thought comforts us. We can leave with the assurance of many deep lessons learned, many treasures of wisdom garnered. In no spirit of boasting we can sav and feel that our knowledge of life has been deepened and made truer, and our spirits brought more in touch with the harmony of the universe.
I can wish nothing better for the Class of ’95 than that, long years hence, when college pranks and revelries are but pleasant memories, the genial flame of love and sympathy kindled here in their hearts will still be burning, and that each member who may go forth to take his place in the world may win distinction and so add honor to the institution we love so well—the Texas University.
