Hi-story oj" ’97
ASABIANCA perished at thirteen” and 97 has achieved a success in her I. college career of which she is justly proud. To resume the history from where “ Captain Kidd ” makes his finis, or rather to recapitulate,—when in 1893 on the twenty-seventh day of September, ’97s first presented themselves upon the scenes of this institution, they were not of a class,—yes, a class of “ Huns,” of true barbarian stock ; not those, however, that rode upon stout little ponies, that had little points for eyes, with long scars down their cheeks for beauty spots, but those of a visage sun-brown in hue, and of a blush not altogether artificial, indeed, contented to ride upon so docile an animal as a jack.
What we did and how in many ways we benefited suffering humanity in our Freshman year has been admirably stated in another connection. It now falls to the lot of the Historian to recount the deeds done of a year that advances us another quarter toward the end of our race, and to voice the sentiments of a class fanciful in its nature, individual in its thoughts, and generous in its “misgivings.” Passing rapidly from a stage mythical into that of one civilized and cultured, through the metamorphosis of a final examination, ’97s were pronounced “self-sufficient Sophomores,” and upon their return donned the dignity of their station.
Hut upon their return what was their sorrow to find that barely half of former days had returned to their first love, but these were brave hearts and strong fellows, determined to bear their banner, the white and the green, to heights yet unattempted. As was common in days of yore, so, soon after our return we resolved that we have a reception, and now we never meet except to move the same thing, a feature characteristic of ’97 that tends to bind more hearts together than does distress or the destruction of bloody war.
Our sophomoric existence has been disturbed not by cane rushes, not by plug-hat contentions, nor even by a struggle with the Freshmen, but by the unceasing monotony of the classroom. However, it is the consensus of ’97s that the Millennium is in a sense realized, indeed, “ the restoration of Israel is at hand, for the wolf (Soph. Englishmen) lies down with the lamb and the leopard with the kid,” etc. In a word, the hearts of the lovers of literature have been completely won.
