BJ TlTUS. fcb To THE Genial, Witty, Chivalrous Southern Gentleman — the Best Friend, the Kindest Heart, the Gentlest Nature, the most Universally Loved Man in the University — JUDGE JAMES B. CLARK, This Cactus is Affectionately Dedicated. Judge James B. Clark. Rabbi Ben Ezra, who had tested the joys of youth and had grown old, once said: " Come, grow old along with me, The best of life is yet to be, The last of life for which the first was made. " The well-known and much-beloved subject of this sketch, the white-haired, ruddy-faced old gentleman, familiarly known as " Judge, " furnishes a striking exam- ple of the wisdom of the Eastern sage. He has learne d somewhere the secret of perennial youth. Eighteen years of service in a position where his work is largely of exacting detail has not dampened his ardor or dulled a naturally keen and lively mind. He is the youngest old man of his day. No one ever saw him with the blues. His companionship with young men is a source of delight, his gallantry proverbial. Both the young and the old seek his counsel. His friendship is the one connecting link that binds hundreds of students to their college days. They may forgetjall else and yet remember one man whose interest and friendship were disinterested and genuine — the spontaneous expression of a gentle nature that reflects kindness as the flower sheds perfume. Such a life confounds the wisest philosopher. Its power is hidden to the most reflective. Simplicity and genuine- ness deceive by their transparency. Often only death can reveal to us the man in his proper perspective. So, while we know we love the Judge, it is hard to define him. He doesn ' t fit into any of our preconceived pigeon-holes. His personality is bigger than any description. The affectionate regard of many hearts, we alone may presume to translate in one particular: The best of his life is in the present, though he is growing old in years. He is our model old man. We shouldn ' t mind age, if it led into the paths of peace and usefulness in which he daily walks. This Cactus is his, in response to a unanimous demand, and we honor it by printing a brief story of his life. James Benjamin Clark is a North Carolinian by birth, a Mississippian by adop- tion, a son of General William Clark and lyouisa Pearce Lanier. General Clark removed to Mississippi when the subject of this sketch was an infant. General Clark was a planter, owning many negroes, and for a time was Treasurer of the State of Mississippi. Judge Clark ' s mother died when he was five years old. He was next to the youngest of ten children, and his elder sisters were to him in loco matris. At the age of twelve he entered Franklin College near Nashville, Tennessee, from which he graduated after four years. Later he entered Harvard University in the Soph- omore Class, and graduated in 1855, being valedictorian. He studied law, and in i860 went to Europe, expecting to travel for several years before returning to the United States. How rudely these plans were mter- rupted and the dreams of youth dispelled, the history of that time will tell. He returned home, went on to Richmond, and to the front at Manassas He was enrolled in the Eighteenth Mississippi Regiment, Barksdale ' s Brigade; was at 9 Drury ' s Bluff, Winchester, Fredericksburg, Antietam, Malvern Hill, in Maryland, in the invasion of Pennsylvania, in Pickett ' s charge at Gettysburg. After this great battle, he was made prisoner and taken to Johnson ' s Island in Lake Erie, where he spent nineteen months as a prisoner of war. The winter of 1863-64 was one of unusual severity. Lake Erie was frozen so that wagons crossed from the mainland on the ice. The prisoners had one blanket each. Our prisoner and his bunk-mate put their blankets together and interlined them with newspapers to keep out the frost. The tedium of captivity was relieved for a few by the formation of a club for reading, the study of French and German under the tuition of Major Julian Mitch- ell of South Carolina, before the war attach of the United States Legation at St. Petersburg, an accomplished linguist. The women of Kentucky, old and young, were banded in every town and city for prison relief, and it was through the medium of this prison ministry that Captain Clark became acquainted by letter with her, who, after the war, was made his wife. Letters accompanied bales of clothing and boxes of Kentucky justly celebrated " good things, " and the girl who wielded the pen of a ready writer was often called upon to act as scribe. And thereby hangs a tale. An exchange was secured for Captain Clark through the Hon. Garrett Davis, United States senator from Kentucky, and he rejoined his command on the north side of James River, one month before the surrender at Appomatox. He was sur- rendered at Appomatox with Lee ' s brave remnant of a glorious army. On his return to Mississippi, that State in the throes of reconstruction offered no field for a young soldier whose family fortunes had been wrecked. He went to Kentucky, edited a paper called The Kentucky People, at Harrodsburg, and was there married to his present wife, Florence Anderson Clark. Together they edited the paper; together they made the old Kentucky home blossom as a rose; to- gether they sought a new home in fair Texas. For ten years Captain Clark was the partner in practice of law with Colonel James Q. Chenoweth. He was appointed one of the Regents of the University of Texas by Governor Ireland; became interested in the institution, then in its infancy; was made Proctor, Librarian, Registrar, Custodian-General, and removed to Austin in July, 1885. He has seen the University expand from its chrysalis state in the old temporary Capitol to its present dimensions. To it he has given eighteen of the best years of his life; to its students he has given the rare spectacle of a mind and heart unruffled by toil, undisturbed by petty personal ambitions, and unclouded by life ' s vicissitudes — the example of youthful heroism in defense of principles, of life-long devotion to duty, and of utter incorruptibility in the discharge of its obligations. His son, Carroll, is married and holds a position in the Confederate Home ; his daughter, Miss Edith, teaches English literature in the Denton Normal. She holds both the B.Lit. and M.A. degrees from the University. These brief sentences do not touch the hem of his larger life. That is written in the hearts of those whose lives his has touched and awakened. The revolving years alone can measure his influence. Long live this philosopher of cheerfulness, this dispenser of the wine of kindness. May many, many lustrums rest on him lightly. Long live the Judge! So say we all. Long live the Judge ! 10 PAGE FACULTY 17 CLASSES 37 FRATERNITIES loi CLUBS 149 ORGANIZATIONS 163 PUBLICATIONS 178 ATHLETICS i95 LITERATURE 219 ADVERTISEMENTS 329 II M. 12 University of Texas Yells.

WHAT WE OUGHT TO HAVE DONE. ' E HAVE climbed a pinnacle, we have reached a goal— it is not the pinnacle nor the goal ; it is but a landing on the staircase, a recess to give us breath- ing-space to cast one look behind us and use our past experiences to profit us in the future— to give us time to hitch our chariot to the final star. Looking backward, we see in the dim, shadowy distance the brambly patch, through which we labored, bleedmg and foot-sore, and not seeing near by the flowery plain ; we look back upon the stony highway over which we stumbled not heeding the path of turf beside; we see ourselves as then we waded through sloughs of Despond, blind to the ready stepping-stones ; we see all along the sinuous road how we missed the golden opportunities that would have helped ease our labors, lighten our toils, and brighten our companionship. We remember having revelled in frivolities when we should have labored ; we remember having plodded in aching dullness when in the flash of the spirit we might have proceeded in magnificence. We look back on the vale through which we journeyed, in bliss at times, and strengthened through our comradeship and common zeal, and from this our pin- nacle, standing in the hush between two conflicts, in one flash of understanding we see how far we have succeeded and wherein we have failed. We have climbed hither but to look back and judge, to gauge our limitations, to see ourselves as we were and are, and for us — in the the words of The Philistine — " The truths of Nature come into view like the distant stars filling the night of the world with new wonder and new light. Truth bubbles like the gracious fountain which dances in desert and glade, that man, parched by error, may be allured to its joyous streams. Truth springs up like flowers in the fields and hedgerows of life — always modest, always unobtrusive, always gladsome. Give us discernment to see it, give us the sense to welcome it, give us the curiosity to study it, give us the un- derstanding to know its worth, give us the courage to act upon it, give us the generosity to extend it to all who know it not. " We have our glories and our regrets. We glory to have come thus far, to see on the distant horizon the land of our dreams and part of the way thither; we glory in our friends, our multiple interests, our minds stored with ambitions, glowing ideas, latent possibilities. " A boy is a man in the cocoon — you do not know what it is going to become— his life is big with possibilities. He may make or unmake kings, change boundary lines between states, write books that mold characters, or invent machines that will revolutionize the commerce of the world. Be patient with the boys ; you are dealing with soul-stuff. Destiny awaits just around the comer! " Our regrets? That we frittered away the irrevocable hours; that we fiddled and danced when we should have stored away the golden grains; that e passed worth by to smile upon worthlessness ; th at we have crossed the threshold, grown from boys and girls into men and women, without using for the very best and highest the soul-stuff with which we are endowed! And then there is a vague, intangible regret because— Destiny is still waiting around the corner. GrETCHEN Rochs, Historian, Junior Class Officers. FALL TERM. F. D.

Bottle exhumed the fol- lowing manuscript which a careful collation with the literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries proves to have been intended for the Cactus sometime during that period. Thinking it may be of some interest to the present readers of the Cactus, we submit it with a few explanatory notes for the benefit of those whose education is deficient in the science of antiquities. Editor Cactus 2567 A.D.) IN the fall of ' 02 seventy-one 2 Juniors returned to the famous seat of learning, situated on the banks of the smiling Colorado, which for two years past they had been at . During these two years this class had distinguished it- self in their first year they had made the proud body of Junior Laws bite the dust also a swell reception victories athletics proud parents checks while the registrar ' distinguished poet But as Juniors having drunk deep of the cup of glory these things began to pall on them a little. For the glowing dreams of their F hmen » days were gone, so having adopted for their motto Ride si sapis (everything over a D is wasted) 1 1 they resolved to enjoy life a little. What was the use of eternally dig- ging ?i 2 It would be a great deal wiser to have some fun as they went along. In the way of good times at least, much could yet be accomplished in a year ' s time. They would improve each shining hour of those that remained HuUaballoo, Hooray, Hooray " That old rotunda, we ' 11 make it thunder " IScholars differ as to whether this date should be 1902 or 2002, but the chirography and long-tailed commas indicate the earlier date. 2A record recently found of dues paid for Cactus representation by each member of the class, proves conclusively that there were only thirty-one members in the class. Exaggeration doubtless due to the enthusiasm of the historian. 3Evidently a poetical license though this proves conclusively that the large building which has been recently excavated comparatively near the river with a large dome supporting an angel and a star is the origi- nal site of this institution and not, as some aver, a legislative building, which supposition is hardly credible as the politicians of those days would hardly adopt such celestial symbols. ' iAt. This word has caused much diflSculty to the commentators. It is said by Campbell to be undoubtedly from the English hat; Calloway declares it more likely (though apologizing for having an opinion on the mat- ter) that it is derived from the Anglo-Saxon thatan, Gothic datana. Sanskrit dabanana, Indo-Iranian, bababanana, from which also is derived the Italian banana ; Reed derives it from the original grunt of the dust- biting animal referred to below (see note 6); Gray says it is preposterous, inane and altogether Inexplicable to attempt to derive it from anything, while Griffith and Eno agree that the word is utterly inexplicable. Dr. Embry, however settles the matter with his customary precision by calling attention to the fact that it is undoubtedly the first syllable of the word attending, the rest of the word being undecipherable on account of the mutilation of the manuscript. Junior Laws. Purpose of this body not yet fully explained but the theory is advanced that they were descendants from the barbarian hordes kept at the University for laboratory purposes. Though confined in the lowest recesses of the building, they occasionally broke loose and it became the duty of the student body to suppress them. 6Exactly what place the mastication of dust had in the social economy of this race is not known, bat eminent authorities consider dust-biting as an evidence of the herbiverous habits of the animal, while others claim that it has some connection with the ferocious sport, possibly a form of warfare of that time, known as foot-ball, hand-ball or head-ball; authorities differ as to which. 7It is very unfortunate that the manuscript should be mutilated here as it might settle the controversy concerning the exact position of the registrar, which tradition says to have been the most important office in the institution. The reference to " proud parents " is also inexplicable, but it is conjectured that they generally accompanied their sons back to the institution as a reward of excellence. SDonbtless a reference to Sinclair, John I,angland (?) or I ng John (?) a famous poet of that epo ch. Whether the first part of the name was a d,escriptive epithet or a reference to the exceeding length and tire- someness of his work, is not clearly understood. He was the author of " Milton ' s Paradise Lost, " as well as the more mellifluous of " Mother Goose ' s Rhymes. " The latter however probably antedate this document as they show a maturer style. 9Iron-brew was a more popular beverage. However this word may be " gory, " and if so, is probably a reference to the game referred to in a note above. lOProbably the adjective form of the noun, Freshies. Several commentators maintain however that the word here used is intended for foolishmen. lilt is asserted on excellent authority that many of the professors of the institution were so convinced of the expediency of this motto, that they absolutely refused to give auything higher than a D. 12We have for some time past been trying to prove that this is conclusive proof of the dust-biting habits of this race, above mentioned. Should any one desire to do original investigation on the subject for his doc- tor ' s thesis, he will find all the data in Volumes 29, 30, 31 of our Customs and Manners of the Later American Savages. 13The last part of this manuscript is too absolutely unintelligible to attempt to explain. Some light may however be thrown on the words huUaballoo and hooray. HuUaballoo is the original form of our present word hallelujah while hooray was a modified form of halloa at that timet he most elegant form of greeting. 5S Officers. FIRST TERM. D. M.

THE Freshman Class of 1901-2, following the natural course of events, by kind sanction of the Faculty, has expanded into a noble Sophomoric body : representative, honorable, distinguished. We say expanded, spite of the inevitable decrease in numbers as compared with our Freshman roll, be- cause of the truly Republican policy which has characterized the class develop- ment. Not in numbers, but in the nervous tissue which Dr. Ellis depicts so glow- ingly as Mind, have we strenuously followed the path of growth and evolution. When we look upon the Darwinian pets of the first-year class, with their gleeful chatterings about " what we are going to do " we realize upon how superior an intellectual plane we stand. Not for us such sparrow flights of callow aspiration, such cheerful chirpings of conceit ! We contemplate the fledgelings pityingly as they make their little boasts, vowing to do the undoable and think the unthink- able, for by our increased stature we have a vision of the melancholy Raven, that perches above the Registrar ' s door, croaking, " Never, nevermore ! " We know how hard it is to slip betwixt Dr. Callaway ' s Scylla on the one hand and Dr. Benedict ' s petrified polygon of a Charybdis just across the way. Be it our glory that we have made the passage and realize the lurking perils of the course. We have learned the first great lesson of a college career, and substitute for the loud asseveration which smacks so significantly of Freshmanic tyroism the truly noble aspiration. " Our modesty ' s a candle to our merit. " Undignified, indeed, is the intem- perate declaration of doughty deeds to be— mere declamatory outbursts, futile, reckless, unfulfilled. With chastened sphit and ripened wisdom we hold to the safer, saner aspiration, which guides and stimulates, and is warranted never to rebound upon its luckless launcher with the misdirected zeal of a boomerang, leaving him prostrate with his pride. Soberly aware " how hard it is to climb the steep where Fame ' s proud temple shines afar, " we purpose to have no grinning skeleton of bygone boast mocking us just when we would fain forget the things we have left undone. It has been impressed upon us that " Study is a contest with ponderable, percentable masses of knowledge, " and sometimes we feel wodully overmatched in the struggle ; who would be so sanguine as to back our tame ability agamst the combined forces of Homer and Halsted, Beowulf and Bolton. ' ' What we would like to do " : We should like to win such renown as a person- ified Peregrinus might gain, to achieve the glorious immortality of a Dodey, to but we are unable to see the finish of dreams so dazzhng. Tis our philosophy that the wistful heart may come into its own by simple laws of cause and effect, and surely the glow of our enthusiasm, our great expectations, our beautiful confidence will not be without reward. And, even if so— " Glories, Hke glow-worms, afar off shine bnght But look ' d too near have neither heat nor light. Meanwhile, we tread our joyous way, happy in anticipation, high ope resolve, earnest and loyal in our pursuit of the ideal, still led on by the silver finger of a star.

NEVER did Old ' Varsity welcome a more enthusiastic band of workers than those who, for the first time, graced her halls in the autumn of 1902. Here two hundred gallant youths and charming maidens had gathered to do themselves and their country honor. With a vigor that only the exuberance of youth can possess, they have attacked the obstacles which hindered their progress and handed down to future Freshmen an unattainable stand- ard of scholarly achievements. Upon the gridiron and in the class-room they have shown their right for recognition and their just claims for excellence. Their intellectual accomplishments remain unsurpassed, their physical feats unrivaled by any of youthful years. Champions of football in their own department, they only yielded the palm to the burly Junior Laws, and this defeat is not disheartening. What mortal pha- lanx could hope to withstand the onslaughts of these untamed ruffians, who never felt the gentle touch of civilization tmtil the generous Freshmen extended it to them? These Vandals have been rescued from barbarism and blessed with the natiu-e and endowments of a cultured people. Into their dusky hearts a new light has crept, and the gloom that formerly clouded their minds has vanished. And this is the result of Freshman endeavor. Such is the spirit that controls Freshman action. To free the world from ignorance and savagery, — this is their mission. How nobly they have begun ! If, in the opening of their college careers, they can instill a gentleness into the nature of their fellow-man, surely they will bless humanity when they have been strength- ened and broadened by college training. If the achievements of the past may justify a prophecy, we expect the Class of ' 06 to win the honors of the future. A manhood so vigorous and a womanhood so refined must show their true worth in after years. The individuals who flatmted on the December breeze the tattered shreds of the " Perigrinus " will wave their ban- ners of triumph in the contests that are to come. Already has their quality been determined and their ability tested. It was their support that made ' Varsity ' s football team so formidable and enabled them to almost secure the Southern championship. From among their number came the star full-back of the South. The peerless Jackson and the invincible Parrish are always mentioned where football is the topic. And not alone in athletics do they excel. Literature claims from them a fol- lowing and oratory boasts of some worthy exponents. These are the stars that will shine with amazing brilhance in the intellectual firmament of posterity. Among the gayeties of Freshman girlhood there is a deeper and nobler element. Within their souls the literary talent is budding, and it must finally blossom forth in all its excellence. These and many more are the marvelous endowments of this year ' s Freshmen. Oh, wonderful perfection of the human race ! What must the future hold for them? Such power of intellect and nobleness of character cannot long be hidden from the world. From among their number a youthful Demosthenes will arise, and the thrones of oppression will tremble at his words. The Herculean Parrish will hurl the weights of injustice beyond the borders of the land and close the mouth of Anarchy with the grip of his iron sinews. And then a new Madame De Stael will enlighten the people with a literature that shows the true tinge of genius, and breathes the soul-felt raptures of her Freshman days. What joy we shall then feel to remember that we sipped at the same fountain and strolled together in the shades of pe ice and love! p M.

WE are not merely Freshmen, but we are Freshman Engineers. Heretofore the Freshman Engineering classes have had no permanent organization of their own, but instead they have gone to strengthen the numbers of the Freshman Academs. This year, however, the Acadenis were disappointed in their efforts to swallow the Engineers. Our membership was large enough to effect an organiza- tion that can stand alone to fight its own battles without alliance. Of course time alone will prove this assertion, but at present we may well assume its truth, for the individual members of the class are men of action, are men with a purpose, are men with an ambition to do something really helpful to the world in its progress. Their ambition is not to cram the mind with a petty knowledge of Latin and Greek, but to get a sufficient knowledge of Mathematics and Engineering to enable them to do something progressive, to do something that is truly American. Again, be ye reminded that we are Engineers. Perhaps the main reason that our class is a marked one is that it did not charge up the hill in full armor on a fiery white steed to hammer down with a battle- axe the entrance to the Temple of Learning. An Engineer may not be romantic, but he is practical. He walked up the hill. Another reason that our class stands above all others is that it has many A-students who are not pale-faced. It is true that Engineers are pale-faced from the standpoint of the American Indian, but it is not true that we are pale-faced because of confinement and inactivity. While we have been at work in the field, the rays of the sun have brought to the cheeks of every man of us either a heroic tan or a mass of brown freckles. The greatest honor that has fallen to the lot of our class is the election of a Freshman to the presidency of the Engineering Department. We have begun well, and we hope to end well. The Engineering Class of 1906 is something of a curiosity in the University, because it has not, like all others have, followed in the deep-worn ruts of its pred- ecessors. Its members did not even attend the Hamburg Show, but they did much better, for on the very first day was installed a show of their own. It is a big zoo. A white polar Baer was caught somewhere near San Antonio, and a big gray Fox was captured in the mountains near Austin. At present the animals are caged in the drawing-room, but when the Engineering Building is begun and completed, a room will be set aside for them. Then, as the Roman emperors fed the Christians to the lions in the arena, the Engineers will feed the Academs and Laws to the animals in the Zoo.

L T THE University this morning, in the Engineering Building, was held the t® first decennial reunion of the Civil Engineers of 1903, all the mem- - bers of the class being present. Prof. Taylor presided, sitting behind a drawing-desk on a stool tilted at an angle to the horizontal and having a max. shear of in the middle panel, the moment of the web being dis- regarded. The program was opened by a paper by Mr. Albert Adiel Cother, M.A.S.C.E. (Member American Society of Church Erection), the subject being " How and Why Engineers Should Cultivate the Growth of the Beard. " Although Mr. Cother ha[s for some years been employed as chief draughtsman for Waddell Hedrick, he has given this subject much attention, and in this paper arrives at a practical applica- tion of the three-moment formula by intricate mathematical processes. The effi- ciency of this formula can be well re(a)d on Mr. Cother ' s own face. After this paper, the class adopted resolutions congratulating Mr. Nathaniel Townsend Blackburn on his recent appointment as Professor of Civil Engineering in the Texas Presbyterian University. We understand that Mr. Blackburn first applied for this position during his Senior year at the University. After his grad- uation, Mr. Blackburn was employed by the City of Austin for several years as dam engineer, but recently he has filled the position of chief stone-breaker on the city streets. He has written several articles for the leading technical journals, the most prominent being " Derivation of Formulae for Ascertaining What Hours Your Girl Spends in the Library. " At this point the visitors became boisterous, and Mr. Bantel stopped pounding the typewriter, stepped to the office door, and shouted : ' ' Boys, you ' 11 have to cut out this horse-play — the President might come in! " Whereupon the Sopho- mores went away and the Juniors resumed their sleep. Mr. Richard Bliss Gillette presented a paper on " How to Irrigate the Glacier- Worn Bad Lands of Southern Missotui. " Under the direction of the Marionville Collegiate Institute, he has been conducting a series of experiments extending over a period of several years, during which time he has not attended more than thirty- eight shows in one season and has not won a single high jump. Since his marriage in 1904 with Mrs , he has entered society and probed the depths of its mysterious workings. His recent article in the Engineering News on " A New Method for Computing the Dead Plug Load for Extra Heavy Piper Heidsieg, Class A, as Used by the Author, " is producing wide-spread remark in engineering circles. Here Prof. Taylor woke up, and, with his usual alacrity and Stentorian voice, shouted: " This law is absolutely imiversal — imderscore ' absolutely ' ! " Duren thereupon nominated " The Old Man " for sergeant-at-arms, but he was imanimously defeated by the ever- willing Prof. T. J. Mr. Charles Edward Leonard now presented a petition he had just circulated, asking to be excused from the proceedings, as he had some " minor " business in court that needed immediate attention. As usual. Prof. Taylor refused Mr. Leon- ard ' s petition, but said he admired his pluck in taking out a Freshman squad two terms. Mr. Leonard is employed in the office of the City Engineer of Austin, although it is stated that just before his appointment the Mayor was seen with a pocketful of directly imported Manila cigars. He claims that his present indulg- ence never exceeds six bottles a day " from and at " Jacoby ' s. Mr. Marvin Ciutis Welbom made an address on " The Geological Structure and Climatic Conditions that Prevail in Arkansas. " His fitness to speak on this 78 subject is shown by the fact that he is chief engineer of an Arkansas trunk line 18,500 mi. (millimeters) long. This road he operates by the formula P = .89 R, where P is the chief engineer ' s salary and R is the net earnings of the road for the same time. He has just become famous through the production of a new com- pound for the removal of freckles. Sample bottle sent free upon request. Prof. Taylor is here called to the ' phone, and pandemonium reigns during his absence. He soon returns, having gained the information of the location of a chum operated by water-power three miles south 90 west of Texarkana. This information makes him feel quite foxy, and he rules with an iron hand. The next paper presented was by Mr. George Alexander {alias Mickey) Dm-en, on " How to Obtam a CE. Degree without Studying. " Mr. Duren ' s four years spent at the University afford him excellent groimds for this discourse. He de- duces the formula H = .00001 T| -|- .965 Tj, where H = total number of hours of study, Tj = total number of hoiu in the last three days before exams., and Tj = total number of hours in the rest of the term. He has recently contributed an article on sleep to the Good Health magazine, the subject being " How to Cram till 4 A. M. for an Exam, and Then Not Wake Up in Time to Take It. " Mr. Thomas Jefferson Palm now showed to the class a new device he has just invented for the simplification of all arithmetical operations. Mr. Palm keenly felt the need of this instrument during his university career, for although he is a hardy son of the soil, he dislikes all ideas of arduous toil. Owing to his handsome- ness, he is a noted heart-breaker, and he gained quite a reputation as a grasping capitalist while he was the moving spirit of the " exchange. " He has just issued a pamphlet on " How to Become the Professor ' s Pet. " For sale at all news stands. After this paper, Mr. Clement John Howard rendered a comet solo, accom- panied by the " old man ' s " whistle, the combination producing a wind stress of R -h I in the upper laterals. Mr. Howard has been employed m his native country, Cauda, for some time on the C. P. lines west of Vancouver. He is making quite a reputation, and still likes to " be out in the dark. " Mr. Bmno Moltke Haberer, with a sofa-pillow on the table before him, his hands in his pockets and his body balanced, read a paper on " How to Get Wealthy Quick ; or, The Advantages of Marrying Rich. " He attained his success m this line in Mexico, and he now smokes two-bit cigars once a day. On accoimt of his lack of length and excess of breadth, he has to stand on a box to reach a drawing-desk. His eagerness to work is exceeded only by his ability to eat chili at Weirbacher ' s, where he now proposed to take the class to try their old sttmt. Adjoumment was immediate and without further proceedings.— Reprint from Engineering News, ttn«ii, 1913. C. J. H.

Since its organization in the fall of 1900 it has grown steadily, until now its membership numbers fifty-two, and includes members from all the classes, besides several of our illustrious " alumniouses. " The Club was formed to promote original research among the members of the Department, to give them practice in preparing papers on engineering subjects, the writing of reports and expert opinions, and to give them general information on many subjects not touched upon in the class-room. In short, to " improve their minds. " Meetings are held fairly regularly, but could be held much more so. We have to plead as excuse that " The Old Man " keeps us pretty busy. We held our first meeting this session about a month after the opening of the University, and immediately elected for President our instructor in Engineering, Mr. Bantel, a man, " prudent, wise, sagacious, and learned in all the sciences. " Not satisfied with being merely the President, he wanted to be the " Hull Cheese, " so he gave us two papers during the fall term, the subject of the first being ' ' Elec- tricity, " and its object the enlightenment of our recently acquired brothers, the " E. E ' s. " The second lecture was on " Iron Smelting, " and was the first of a series of two lectures on steel production. The lecture was illustrated by stereop- ticon views, showing the whole process of iron smelting as carried on at the Cambria Steel Works in Pennsylvania. For the second term we elected " Junior " Martin to " the highest office in the gift of us peoples, " and during his reign Mr. Bantel finished his lecture on the pro- duction of steel, giving us an illustrated talk on the manufacture of structural steel, the illustrations being " stereopticonated " (see Leonard Duren ' s Unabridged Dictonary) . These two lectures were among the best that we have ever had, and were very much enjoyed by us ( " us " including several co-eds). As President for the third term we will have Senior Welborn, otherwise known as Texas Jack, the Master Car -builder. Your humble servant ' s foresight not being as good as his backsights, he is unable at the present writing to give a list of the many subjects that will be discussed by the Club. We are promised a series of illustrated lectures on block-signaling and interlocking, bv Mr. R. A. Thompson, and an illustrated lecture on rice irrigation by Prof. Taylor. The gallant Seniors will also perpetrate some of their theses upon us. Last year we discussed the Austin dam, deciding that it should not be rebuilt, and deciding, incidentally, that it was a " dam " failure. We expect to decide a few other mooted questions for the public before we stop. In closing this history, the writer will admit that there are several improve- ments that could be made in the Club. First, we ought to have more members— we have only about half of the Engineers in the Club ; second, we ought to have more regular meetings; and third, every member should attend every meeting. We leave our blessing with thee, illustrious Club! seeing thee in the dim future ever growing and expanding into greater and greater usefulness, a source of pleasure and profit to all the disciples of the worthy " T.

WHEN, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to write a class history, it well becomes the one upon whom the duty devolves to look for precedents in the records of former classes. The appalling discovery made in examining the histories of our predecessors induces the same feehngs that brought tears to the world-famed Alexander— nothing left in the realm of bragdom. Wherefore, premises considered, the Class of ' 03 is going to be handed down to history as the only original class that didn ' t do it all, didn ' t carry off all the honors, didn ' t win all the victories, didn ' t have all the good men. It is the only class that ever entered the University of Texas that didn ' t sweep every- thing before it. To begin with, the Class of Law ' 03 may be called the modest class— both in numbers and in achievements. Coming between the two largest Law classes in the history of our University, ' 02 and ' 04, it cannot boast of numbers. Engaged in little besides the study of Law, it cannot boast of victories. Hence, it cares not to boast at all. At the first meeting of the class in October last, Klapner covered himself with glory and turned the class-room into a howling pandemonium by his eloquent speech: " Gentlemen of the Senior Law Class, I salute you. " Kapner is right there yet. Elkins, Hughes, and Bishop afflicted the class as Presidents; Wise and Gog- gans wrote down J minutes that were never read; Stansell took our money; Gay managed the football team; Henne was captain; Borden, coach; Lytle was cap- tain and Charlie Witt manager of the baseball aggregation. True was politician. Flowers tortured Grubbs with his [vile cheroots. Leavell was the parliament- ary thorn of the class until Hughes squelched him. Winn debated, but won not. Lendiwig wore flowers on his necktie. Judge Simkins called us a " cheer " -ful et. Judge Townes didn ' t say it, but he looked it, that we were a " sleepy " crowd. Judge Lewis " suggested " our whistling qualities. Judge Gomd reserved his opinion on accoimt of the great number of Junior Laws who " butted in. " Judge Clark ordered us to go back into our " dens. " Our cry of ' ' Speech, Judge ! " changed his intentions We have been a patient class. We asked for law, and Judge Simkins gave us " Equity. " We ent to Judge Townes ' " Pleadmg, " and he gave us " Practice. We asked Judge Gould for a " Partnership, " and he gave us " Bills and Notes. " We wanted to make a " Real Estate " deal with Judge I wis, and he gave us a deal of " Constitutional Law. " As said before, Law ' 03 is a modest class. True, some men did so far forget themselves as] to accept a few honors graciously tendered and freely bestowed. Flowers consented to be President of the Athletic Association and of Brackenridge HaU. Bartholomew modestly acted as President of the Students ' Council through- out the year. " Gus " Barton avoided as much as possible the honor of the presi- dency of the Final Reception, but it was literaUy thrust upon him. Dibrell and 91 Moore again represented Texas in the Intercollegiate Debates. The Senior Law Class will doubtless furnish the Texas representative for the Southern Oratorical Contest. Russell served the Rusk, and Hutchins the Athenaeum as President. Dabney and Walthall served as Law Librarians — the first time two Senior Law stu- dents have held the positions. Lytle and Walthall won the tennis championship of the University in doubles. We found the " Peregrinus " here; we let him get " sorter " bruised up; but he is still here. We played but one game of football. Then we were able to hold down the " mighty Jimior Laws " to a score of 5 to o. Examine the score they made against the Freshmen, the Academ. champions. On the day of the cham- pionship game we carried oid " Perry " down on the field to cheer on our brothers of the Law Department. Such was the inspiration of the historic emblem of twenty centuries of Equity that the Junior LaAvs played all over and round and through and under the Freshmen. After the game— but that ' s for the Juniors to tell. " They done it. " The Class of Law ' 03 has been a modest class, a patient class, a working class. It has very little past to speak of ; its present is a trembling expectancy as it is pushed forth into the deep waters of life; its future is bound to be one of success. In my mind ' s eye I see Beckham as governor and Holland as justice of the peace ; Harrison as county judge and True as district attorney; Niday as Mayor and Grubbs as district judge ; Dibrell as a Congressman and Sewall as a divorce lawyer ; Dalton the chief adviser of a trust and Hardy taking chickens and butter for fees ; Cole as a demagogue and Winn as Sunday-school superintendent; Merrill and Samuels with nice clean cases, but not many of them ; Henne will quit his foolish- ness ; Kapner will talk business ; Prather will marry a little country girl and live happy; Witt and Haven will be hot-headed even unto " contempt of court " ; Long Davis will advance by strides; Powell will play politics; Barton will stop danc- ing; Shell won ' t look so sleepy, nor Sayle so lazy; Basham and Stephenson will hunt partnerships; Ellis and Gk)ggans will marry young; Christian will be a judge — of pretty women ; Rhome and Carter will hold State offices ; Perkins and Roos will look pretty; " Little " Dabney will be a senator; Deane will be called sharp, Ratliff shrewd, and Wiley smooth; Kellis will run a ranch; Whatley will run a political machine; Gay will gull the Indians; Parker will quit the Capitol; Clark will be popular with the coimtry people; Dreesen will buy a newspaper, later he will try to give it away; Giles will imitate Jerry Randolph; Lawrence will marry rich and forget his troubles ; the two Bakers will have quite different careers ; Campbell will try to grow whiskers; Morris will make a fortune, Cavett a living, and " Short " Davis a reputation; Horton will create a sensation; Edgar Witt will be an alderman. The rest of the class will be lawyers. Tempora mutantur, et in tilts tnutamur! As the page upon which this is re- corded grows yellow and dim with age we of the Class of Law ' 03 must change. May the change be ever for the better. To him of all the class who in the future rises to highest pinnacles of fame: " We sat with you and studied with you. You are one of our class. " To him who fails : ' ' Here ' s a hand with a hearty grasp. You, too, recited with us ; you, too, are one of our class. " Verily, tempora mutabuntur. D. A. F., Historian. 92 93 a: g 3 if) Lxi O r?

IT SEEMS to be the purpose of a class history to serve as an opportunity for expressing class pride and patriotism, and all such histories have an inevitable conclusion — namely, that the particular class concerned is the greatest in the history of the institution. The elements on which this superlative greatness is based are many. They vary, from the assertion that the class is the greatest be- cause there are valid claims for its surpassing greatness, to the assertion that it is the greatest because its members would like for it to be the greatest. This article contemplates no direct assertion of such a belief or unbelief, but rests its case on the evidence to be submitted. The Law Class of 1904 is a product of extraordinary conditions. The fact that those entering the Law School next year will have to take a three-years ' course has been an incentive to many to enter this year, and thus avoid spending an additional year on the course. On account of this reason and the constant increase in general attendance at the University, the Junior Class is easily the largest yet enrolled in the Law Department. Its membership includes all shades of verdure and all degrees of previous preparation. Time, the Professors, and the now threatening Green amendment will likely decimate its ranks before Commencement Day of 1904. It may be that some of us will decide that in our attempts to make lawyers of ourselves we are spoiling some good farmers, teachers, and clerks, as no doubt many of our friends and acquaintances have already decided, and under this impulse retire from the further study of the course. Of the one hundred and twenty members of the class, an extraordinary large number have had previous collegiate training, thirty-five of them being graduates or having been students in the Academic Department here, and a number of others having had similar training in other universities. It is probable that no previous class has had as much general academic training. It has been an independent, working, thinking aggregation, from the start, as the exemptions and final grades in each subject show. And yet the atmosphere has been made uncomfortable for the grinder. Of the eleven classes in the University, it has contributed an abnor- mally large number of leaders and workers in every organization and activity. There has never been a disposition on the part of the other classes to set up them- selves for a contest and for comparison with it since the memorable day of the championship football game and " rush, " when the verdant Freshman was terror- ized by the early appearance of the following announcement of the day ' s exercises : " FRESHMEN, HEARKEN ! " We, the mighty Junior Laws, realizing that the male contingent of the Fresh- man Class is an abomination to the State and a pest to the University, do propose to WIPE UP THE EARTH with the individuals of the above-mentioned aggregation possessing sufficient indis cretion to remain on the Athletic Field after the football game to-day. " All those desirous ot seeing this performance are requested to remain. " We are the noble Junior Laws, We feed on Freshmen squeals ; At the very sight of us The Freshman ' s blood congeals. " Oh, we ' re the lusty Junior Laws ! Come, Freshies, if ye dare ; By the gods, we ' 11 eat you, Flesh and bone and hair ! " JUNIOR LAWS. S7 In the literary societies, it has furnished thirty of the one hundred and twenty members who take part in their exercises. In the recent preHminaries for the selection of debating teams to be sent against Colorado and Tulane, three of the six are Junior L,aws. In the contest for the Gregory Batts fifty-dollar debating prize, a proud Junior Law had the pleasure and honor of depositing the check to his credit. In the contest for the Du Bois prize in oratory, three of the leading contestants already entered are out of this class, and gossip says one of them is to be the winner of this coveted prize and honor. A Junior Law was selected by the Students ' Council to represent the student body by delivering an address on Independence Day. Many of the contestants for the literary society prizes are Junior Laws, The class contains two members who hold fellowships in schools of the Academic Department. The four private secretaries and stenographers holding positions in the University are Junior Laws. In the executive positions open to students, it boasts of having the business managers of The Cactus, The Texan, The University Magazine, the Glee Club, and of next year ' s football team. In the musical organizations it is easily the dominant factor and the leader. In the Glee Club, out of the thirty-one members almost a half — fourteen members — are Junior Laws. The business manager and the student members of the Execu- tive Committee are Junior Laws. Of the Quartette, which will be featured on the club ' s programmes this year, three belong to this class. lu the ' Varsity Band, it has six of the sixteen student members, and, with one exception, the first part in each section of the instrumentation is executed by these six members. In the Mandolin Club, it has the director and six of the twelve members, and, as with the band, the leading parts are entrusted to the execution of these members. Of the seven members of The Texan staff, it claims three. Thirty-five of its members have been chosen to make the one hundred and sixty fraternity men in school. In athletics, it has so far been all one way and in this class ' s favor. It went forth under the guidance and inspiration of the far-famed " Peregrinus " banner, and won the class championship in football. Of the twenty-two men composing ' Varsity ' s football team, ten are proud of their designation as Laws ' 04. In track and gymnasium contests held so far, most of the victories are credited to Junior Laws. The " fans " are conceding an easy victory of the class championship in baseball to the Junior Laws, and a large representation on the ' Varsity team. Which of the other ten classes in school can furnish such an array of facts and show so potent an influence on university life and progress? Which of the classes that have made the glorious past can show so large a share in all that goes to make college life? 98 JUNIOR LAW FOOT-BALL TEAM. CLASS CHAMPIONS. Junior Law Foot-Ball Team.

The Ancient and Honorable Order of Gooroos, said to have flourished in the Universities at Alexandria and later at Constantinople, and therefore the oldest of college secret societies, has been established in the University of Texas. It tran- scends without coming into conflict with college fraternities. It is not a com- petitor nor even a coadjutor of them, for a title to its membership may be had by any man without regard to his former affiliation or non-affiliation with other societies. The circle, as its appropriate emblem, indicates its scope and purpose. The bonds of friendship, which compose the circle, are not stronger nor weaker than the worth of each individual member. Held together by similar ideals, con- geniality of temperament and a common purpose, its membership propose to become a positive force in whatever makes for the upbuilding and conservation of the higher life in the University of Texas. 15 GOOROOS. 159 FINAL BALL.

ATE in the Spring of 1900, the need of a second literary society having ® been long felt, eight young ladies met in one of the recitation rooms of L the University and decided that the new literary society should become. a reality. Hardly more than this was done at the time, but during the summer these students corresponded with one another, gathered suggestions and information from various sources, and did all in their power to be in readiness to meet at the beginning of the new session and organize as soon as possible. In the Autumn, with the opening of the University, the society was named and the constitution drafted ; a subject for study — the life and works of Sidney Lanier — was selected, and the new society began its work with a small but enthusiastic membership. It has been the practice of the Sidney Lanier Society, in order to avoid desultory and diffusive study, and to give, on the other hand, significance and interest to the successive programs, to group these about one central point. The second year, a study was made of Southern poetry. It was impossible to cover at all adequately this whole field, but with a carefully planned outline, the poets were studied systematically and a broad view of the subject obtained. Feeling, indeed, that the field is inexhaustible, it was decided not to leave Southern literature, but to study the poets once more, and, in addition, to take up the prose writers. The programs for this third year of the Sidney Lanier ' s work, arranged with this end in view, have been interesting and instructive, and have stimulated all the members to more enthusiastic work. The membership for the present year has increased until there are now twenty-six active members. On the whole, more interest is constantly being taken in the work of the society, the members are more regular in their attendance, and a feeling of fellowship is becoming more and more manifest. The loan fund, which it has ever been the aim of the Sidney Lanier Literary Society to maintain and increase, was used during the summer, and is again in use during the present session. It is the great desire of the members that this fund one day shall reach such proportions that some girl, who would otherwise not be able to attend the University, may be enabled to come here and study for an entire year.

It has sought to give its members the valuable practice and culture found in debating and public speaking; it has endeavored to maintain a kind and helpful spirit among its members, a spirit free from petty wrangling and undignified discord, a spirit of harmony not always foimd in such societies; it has striven, also, to excel its contemporaries in the quality of its orators and in the excellence of its debaters. Its first purpose the Athenaeum has fully carried out. The tradition of the Society is " that an Athenaeum man can speak upon any subject, at any time, and can speak well. " Men, who come to the Society bashful, awkward, illogical, imforceful, develop into graceful, self-possessed, and convincing speakers; men who are green and unpolished in September, are among the Ross-Rotan contest- ants in May. The success of the Athenaeum is chiefly due to the good fellowship and co-operation that prevails. Athenaeum men are always in sympathy with the new men, and encourage them in every way. As a result of congenial attention initi- ates soon feel at ease, and old men have declared that the happiest days of their college life have been spent at the Saturday night meetings of the Society. All this is largely due to the fact that a majority of the Athenaeum ' s members are wholly or partially defraying their own college expenses, are men who are in this University for a serious purpose, are men dead in earnest. As a climax to a year of pleasant experiences comes the annual banquet on the occasion of the Ross- Rotan medal contest. A contest for a $50 prize, open to all Athenaeum members, is held on the second Thursday in May. This prize has been won consecutively by Mr. Edward R. Holmes, Mr. M. S. Cavett and Mr. J. B. Dibrell. Immediately after the contest the assembled audience and contestants adjourn to the banquet table where, after a merry time of feasting, a series of toasts are responded to by the ablest of the Society ' s after-dinner speakers. Equally gratifying to Athenaeum is the part the Society has taken in the pub- lic contests during the last four years, since greater attention has been given to these matters. During the session of 1899- 1900 her men were chosen representatives and alternates in the Southern Inter-Collegiate Contest. Unfortunately, Mr, Creager, our representative, was taken sick before the contest, and Mr. Dibrell, as alternate, took his place. Though under the disadvantage of a comparatively hasty prepa- ration, Mr. Dibrell was awarded second place in the contest, one of the judges vot- ing him the best speaker. The same year the University representative in the Baylor debate, Messrs. Potts and Thomason, were Athenaeum men, and suc- ceeded in winning this debate. 169 In 1 900- 1 90 1, owing to an exodus of graduates the Society shrank in num- bers, but in the debate with Baylor, which was not decided, she had one repre- sentative, Mr. Taylor Moore, Jr., and Mr. Ben H. Powell as alternate; and in the Tulane debate, which was lost, she was represented on the team by the alternate, Mr. W. B. Merrill. In 1 90 1 -1902, in the debate with Tulane both debaters were Athenaeum men, Messrs. Taylor Moore, Jr., and J. B. Dibrell. This debate was won by Texas. In the Colorado debate, which was also won by Texas, the Athenaeum was represent- ed by Mr. W. S. Moore. During the present session Messrs. J. B. Dibrell, Jr., W. S. Moore and W. A. Cocke, all Athenaeum men, have been chosen three of the four University repre- sentatives in the coming Tulane and Colorado debates. In the last two S. I. O. A. preliminaries, the Athenaeum has had second place. For the past two sessions there have been special prizes offered to the best in- dividual debater in the University. The Athenaeum has been successful in land- ing both of these; Mr. Taylor Moore, Jr., being victor in 1902, and Mr. W. A. Cocke in 1903. The Society ' s men have kept up their record after leaving college. On the bench, at the bar, upon the platform, in the legislative halls, they are assum- ing the prominent places and testifying in the most convincing way to the value of the training and experience afforded by the Athenaeum.

THE University Co-Operative Society was organized in June, 1896, for the purpose of supplying the University with books, stationery and athletic goods, at the lowest prices consistent with safe business methods. It is composed of members of the P aculty and students who pay the annual fee of one dollar. The directors consist of the committee of the Faculty on book- store and representatives chosen by the vSociety from the different classes and de- partments. No salaries are paid except to the clerks, three students who are thus assisted in making their way through the University. Sales are made at a uni- form price to all persons connected with the University, but members of the Society receive at the end of the year a rebate in proportion to the total amount of their purchases.

A Y BOY vSani has alhis ben mighty good to stay at home and tend to f yi things around the place, so when he taken his diploma at our high @ school I decided to let him go to the vState University and git ejicated right up to the notch. Well, he has ben doin ' the finest kind sence he has been up there, jist as we all knowed he would — wrote home Christ- mas tellin ' us he had done been conditioned in Math (whatever that is), and I seen in the Texan where he is expectin ' to be a member of the freshman class agin next year, if ever thing turns out right. Not long ago he sent home a poem of his ' n entitled Dolce Far Niente or some- thin ' of that sort — Latin, dago, nigger or some other heathern dialeck. I looked clean through three differnt almanicks in four diflfernt languages without bein ' able to find out what the blame thing meant — Sam was a long ways ahead of the almanick. From what he afterwards told us hissef I gethcred that it meant to set down on the stool of do nothin, ' or words to that effect. I reckin, though, that vSam is about as able a feller along that line as can be found this side of the Rio Grande, but 111 swanny I wisht he woulden ' t fool away so much time writin ' them landans and things. Well, that ain ' t what 1 started in to tell you about ;havin ' a little matter of bizness to tend to in connection with the Legislater I taken a trip up to Austin and arrove all right in the Capital city without gittin ' lost, murdered or robbed, as the poet says. Course I wos afeared the University boys might have their feelin ' s hurt if I dident pay ' em a visit, so I called around and seen the wonders. But I ain ' t got time to tell about any of the sights ex- cept B. Hall, and mighty dog gone little about hit in perportion to what I seen. B. Hall, as ever Texan ot to know, is the great, big sixty- thousand dollar hotel where Sam and niore ' n a hunderd other fellers does their sleepin ' and gits their grub. I ' ll swear, that thing shore is fixed up from who laid the chunk— all I ' m skeered of is that them voung fellers, bein ' brung up in the lap of luxury as they air, when they git out into the world will find theirselves to be pampered hothouse blossoms that cain ' t stand the wear and tear of life as she exists in the wild and wooly west. In the first place the electrickity lights air all over the whole shebang— no mon- keyin ' with coal oil fer the free citizens of B. Hall, thank ye ; in the next place she is heated up from top to bottom by steam incubators, so that them boys don t haft to bring in wood, split kindlin ' nor even make the fires. But the haff ham ' t been told vit ; I had ben in Sam ' s room about a half hour that mornin ' , talkm ' to him and his room mate on the mode of babtizm and the poll tax amendment, when 185 low and behold, in stepped a darkey and lit in to cleanin ' up the room like six-bits. Hit taken him jist about three minits, with his bresh and broom, to git the room straightened up and the bed made up, and from what I could see he done his work well. Ananias was his name, I b ' lieve Sam told me. About a quarter after one the dinner bell rung, and of all the racket a body ever heard, they made it agoin ' down stairs. I don ' t blame ' em a bit, ' cause the pore boys must ' a been powerful hungry by that time. I never was much of a hand to criticise and find fault, but hit does seem like to me hit ' s a leetle highfalutin ' , this here wav of havin ' dinner in the middle of the evenin ' . But, people, the chuck shore was fine, and the very table groaned with the weight thereof, but 1 ain ' t writin ' a bill of fare fer the public. Any body that don ' t believe what I say J can go and see fer himself; I couldent he ' p thinkin ' of the scripture as I set there and what it said about the rich man who was clad in fine raiment and fared sumptuously every day ; and I wondered if any of that goodly company would wind up like Dives of old done owin ' to their magnificent style of livin ' in this world. After dinner I went back to Sam ' s room and met a whole passel of the B. Hall boys — all mighty fine fellers. I cain ' t ricollect very many of their names right now, but I never can fergit Cosine Smith, Huge Borden, A. B. Cox, and a feller named Hackett, who was extry polite and offered to show me around over town. There was a ugly red-headed feller there that I sorter got stuck on ; his name is T. D. Campbell, and the boys call him doctor — one of ' em told me he is a D. D. (doctor of dominoes) and that he is goin ' to be a missionary to the Highway Islands as soon as he graduates and marries. That ' s what I like to see, too. The boys says that A. B. Cox has fell in love, and the simpletons of the disease has developed in their worst form, and he ain ' t long for the earth neither. I couldent find out nothin ' much about Cosine Smith except that he ginerly stays in the telephone room and talks to all the girls that ring up the other fellers at the Hall. Huge Borden is in very delicit health, but seems to be a nice young man, who doubtless has a bril- liant future behind him and will leave footprints on the sands of time. I was shore sorry when the time come for me to say good-bye to B. Hall and her buddin ' geniuses of one kind and a nother, but I had it to do at last. It was recess when I left and folks were out on the play-ground talkin ' , walkin ' around, and battin ' soft little balls over a seine, and enjoyin ' theirselves in diffemt ways. Well, I leave the subjec ' with you, as the feller said when the mule bucked him off. 1 86 i87 1 88 The Retrospective Club. snikmiS neleH nedA ecinuE senwoT ennA lliH ecarO sillE einal ekalv sioL nosirraG ad A enraeH drawoH reneggaW leL eciR ainigriV sirraH tseW ynnaF rehtarP ynnaF wemolohtraB arolF rendraO eoj einnA 189 Grace Hall.

BEFORE the adoption of the Constitution of the Students ' Association of the University of Texas, there had been no organization of the student body whatever, and there could be no concerted action on any question by the students themselves. Anybod - could call a mass-meeting of the students in what ever way he saw fit, and such mass-meeting was conducted according to the ideas of whomever happened to be elected chairman on the occasion, if indeed it was thought necessary to elect a chairman at all. Nothing but confusion and dis- order could result from such haphazard action of the student body. Seeing the great need of organization, a number of students went quietly to work to formulate a scheme that would correct this evil. After many months of hard work, much correspondence with other colleges, and a great deal of discussion in the college weekly, a constitution was drawn up which was adopted May 24, 1902. The result of this action on the part of the students has been highly gratifying. Now there is a recognized head to the student body and any question of interest niay be discussed and determined intelligently. The association will have control of all student publications, and elect all editors and managers of the same. It elects the president of the Final Reception and has charge of all student arrange- ments for the celebration of Universitv Holidays. To put it tersely, it is an organization of the students, by the students, and for the students. 215 students ' association-. 2l6 -INMEMORIAM- I. ' : ' ■■ ' :i ' • IMOHN.

Hipparchia and Thais, fair of face, But neither the fairer where are they ? And Echo, that unbeholden fay. Whose voice answers by marish and mere. Whose beauty was more than man may say ? — But where are the snows that were white last year ?

Queen Blanche, with her face like a lily, white, And her siren voice like music heard ; Beatrix; Bertha, Broadfoot hight; Alys ; and the Lady Ermangarde ; Joan the good, and the evil-starred, At Rouen burned by the English there — Mary Mother, where have they fared ? — But where are the snows that were white last year ?

A primrose path by a quaint old hill Made a lovelit way, Where new-bom shadows quivered still With the dying day. The little winds kissing her dark, dark hair Sang sweet, sang low Through graceful elm trees whispering there In the afterglow. In the forest home, in the dungeon deep Of hope and pain. Two souls got lost in the vast, vast keep Of love ' s domain. aa5 He ' d Rather Like to Know, When a fellow takes a notion he ' s a genius tmdiscerned, He loiters through the corridors and isn ' t much concerned About attending classes. Well, examination ' s come And his idol ' s rudely shattered ; he has found that there were some Few things he was not up on ; he ' s anxious now, and, though He thinks his " rep " has saved him, still he ' d rather like to know. When a fellow runs for office, and has carefully laid plans, Has subsidized the leaders and has satisfied the clans. He gets a little restless, and he can ' t sleep well at night, He ' s afraid his combinations are not holding out just right. For the opposition ' s active, and the hoi pottoi is so Persistently capricious that he ' d rather like to know. When a fellow finds a Co-ed — say for instance, you or I — Who ' s as lovely as a lily, as a violet as shy; Sometimes he falls a-wondering, while the shadows dim As he muses in his grate-fire : " Does she ever think of him ? And will she really, really ? " — But the firelight flickers so That it makes him pretty doubtful — he would rather like to know. Gatbs Thomas, ' oo 226 Letter of Transmissal. BoNHAM, Texas, January u, 1903. Editor of Cactus : — Of the many demeritorious things I have done, of the numerous literary crimes I have committed, the enclosed is the most reprehen- sible. It is, however, a fairly accurate abstract of two-thirds of the modem fiction which at all smacks of the sanguinary. Perhaps my effort will not seem so reprehensible, if I add a few epexegetical remarks. The plot requires three persons— a maid and two men. She marries one, while she soon finds her love is for the other. Of course it is an easy matter to plan an elopement ; a discovery ; self-destruction on the part of the disgraced woman, and a struggle between lover and husband — in which the husband is victorious. How to dispose of the survivor ? There ' s where invention was needed. To have him stab himself would have been trite, and a repetition of the woman ' s mode of death. For the two men each to kill the other would have afforded only one sensation, where there was material for two. Finally, the inspiration came to me — that the victor might die of intense feeling. This I availed myself of. Of the three original characters, all met tragic ends; and a pronounced and distinct type of death was given each. H. P. S.

But sad, soporific discovery ! ! ! Her hero, her hus- band. In him had she been deceived ! Faithless wretch soon was he found to be. CHAPTER IV. Eustace, the rejected, continued constant ; eager to come at beck and call. Why, gentle reader, should we blame her? Her heart yearned for all that was noble, and this was Eustace. CHAPTER V, A black, stormy night ; ideal for the elope- ment of two torrid, tempestuous spirits. The heart within Ossaphyda ' s bosom beats strangely but strongly. A foot-step ! ! ! ! ' Tis Eustace come for his. CHAPTER VI. Alack ! ! ! The prying Pistachio, pusillani- mous and picayunish, knows all ! From a secret crypt, like a tiger, he springs forth!! Ossaphyda, terror-stricken, feels his fetid pres- ence. Smiling bravely, she pierces her left pulmonary with a still stiletto hitherto con- cealed in the folds of her chin. With a wild, manical whisper she yields the spirit, first tottering CHAPTER VII. Pistachio, bafiled, at bay, (for ' twas Ossa- B f ' fr phyda whom he sought to kill), stood snarling.

You come upon me unawares — a star, A soft, white star that whispers peace, And shyly sends its message from afar. I feel your presence, wholly fair; I cease To ponder over all things strange or new : I give off grieving for the world ' s distress, Lost in the wonderment of seeing you Sway as a lily in your loveliness. The graceful form, in quiet, quaint repose, The wistful, nymph-like beauty, lacking art Of self-concealment ; here I see the rose In embryo, the tender, speaking heart. The secrets of the long-lost Sapphic scroll Are only musings of thy maiden soul. 229 " In de Ian ' ob de forgotten; Not a soul along de hill ; Not a voice to wake yo ' gladness ; Everything do ' pear so still; Not an echo to a footstep; Not an ansah to a call, ' Sep ' a mockin ' -bird a-singin ' To de lonesomeness — dat ' s all. " 230 The Psalm of Foot-ball. (what hart op the FOOT-BAIX TEAM SAID TO THE PSAI4 IST.) Tell me not in mournful numbers Foot -ball is so very tame, For the player ' s dead that slumbers — That, you know ' s part of the game. Foot -ball ' s real, foot-ball ' s earnest, And the grandstand ' s not the thing ; Let each fellow play his demdest While trumpets blow and cow-bells ring. On the gridiron ' s broad field playing. When the ball is put in play, Lay about you with much slaying. To be a hero— that ' s the way. Not by slugging, nor by frown Is the way to make a hole. Play low and push, that each down Finds you ten yards nearer goal. Bucks of great players all remind us We can make our play sublime, And departing leave behind us A good wide opening in the line; Trust no lineman, howe ' er smart; Hit him hard and kill him dead, Be off quick, get the start Or he ' s liable to get ahead. An opening, which perhaps another, Following after with the ball, A winded, hot pursued brother. Seeing, shall break through the wall. 8 Let us then be up and doing, Have a slug for every pate ; Still a bag of wind pursuing, Learn to kick the foot -ball straight. 33 The Ball. (FIFTH DANCE.) My dance ! how that old worn out tune They played went through my veins — how soon It ended ! Ah, the afterglow Out blowing smoke-rings at the moon. (TWELFTH DANCE.) Jack ' s dance. I saw you smile, and Jack, The nervy devil, dared smile back — The orchestra got all mixed up And everything was out of whack (finale.) Except the punch — (nay don ' t frown so) The punch-bowl, then the bar below, And jumbled fancies mixed with morning When the dance seemed long ago. To dine, or not to dine : that is the question ; Whether ' tis nobler in the flesh to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous hunger, Or to take arms against a sea of victuals, And by opposing end them ? To dine : to sleep ; No more ; and by a sleep to say we end The stomach-ache and thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to — ' tis a consumation Devoutly to be wished. To dine, to sleep, To sleep : perchance to dream : ay, there ' s the rub ; For in that sleep what fell night-mares may come When wejhave too well stuffed this mortal coil, Must give us pause.

' CO. 232 A Fabian Move. 7T LL summer the Alphas had visions of the University corridors thronged PVn with splendid, straight-built Gibson, Pierce and Gilbert ghls in exquisite @1 Worth costumes. All summer the swish-swish of possible silk-lined skirts - ■ - - filled their ears and before their eyes arose the grades of these prospective paragons who, when making marks, never considered but one letter in the alphabet and that the first one. In their dreams those A ' s grew as large as fists and as plentiful as the leaves on the trees. And all during the summer they had dreams to the effect that the rival sorority. Omega, would bid each of these peer- less and majestic beauties, and that these tailor-made marvels would curl their aristocratic lips and declare that the Alphas were the people, and so, politely, but frigidly and firmly, they would turn the Omegas down. At this juncture each Alpha in her respective bed, somewhere in the State of Texas, would give a gleeful little jump, scarcely realizing what may happen to the best -laid schemes of mice and men. Now for several weeks they had all been gathered back into the classic halls of their Alma Mater. During classes the diflferent Alphas looked and listened; in the afternoon they scattered through the library and the corridors, prospecting, and in high hopes of seeing the originals of their imaginings. Yes, here were girk, girls and girls ! tow-headed, red-headed, curly-headed and towsle-headed, but none with that up-to-the-minit twist of coiffure that alone betokens true inward worth, and none that bore resemblance to the highly-colored portraits of their air-castle queens. There were girls in all color-schemes and in a most lavish variety of misfits — but none that bore Fashion ' s own thumb-mark. It was truly exasperat- ing. Why didn ' t the right sort of girls come to the University — only the kind that had elder sisters teaching school, so that the younger one might have the opportunity of a college education. Just the kind that taught music on the side; just the kind that were so interested in their matriculation cards, so absorbed in their intellectual menu for the coming College feast that they didn ' t have time to inquire and learn that Alpha was founded six weeks before Omega, Finally, the members of Alpha adjusted their deranged imaginations to such an extent that they were able to observe good points in that mass of what had at first seemed " impossibles. " The rushing season was well under way. Some of the new girls could even be counted upon as prospective Alphas, while others were in dread danger of Omeganism. It was Sunday afternoon of the third week when the Alphas met in Mona Gilbert ' s room to discuss prospects. Irving Dodd, the brag Alpha of last year ' s haul, was lounging in the best rocker with an ebbing box of Huyler ' s on the table beside her and was delivering a drawled lament upon the homeliness and cfcfc-lessness of girls in general and this year ' s Freshmen in particular. " The only one, " she concluded, " is that little Amy Wesson from Cameron, but did you ever see anything like that pancake-effect, in white satin and red tur- key feathers that she wears in lieu of a hat? " , ' The Alphas all sighed deeply, that hat had weighed on their mmds for a fortnight. .333 " Ellie Wright wouldn ' t be so bad, if she ' d let me put her stock on for her and fix her belt r nd comb her hair less puritanically — I really think she ' d do, " said the optimistic Clara, who never despaired. " Ellie Wright, " said Irving, " needs a French maid to take care of her — that ' s all. Let ' s take her and Clara ' ll dress her every morning before school. " " O, girls, think of those grand drawing-rooms in tbe Peraberton home. It ' s a shame Mrs. P. ' s granddaughter is such a little insignificant — but we can ' t all be beautiful, " said Lucy of the Madonna-face. " Think of those parties that are pos- sible in that house ! " The house weighed heavily, and it is probably due to it that Sue Pemberton now wears the golden emblem of Alpha. " Girls, " said Winifred from the couch, " did you see that tall Warren girl with that glorious sun-burst at the german the other night? It ' s a dream. She seems to be quite the thing with the boys, too — I heard her casually remark that for the opening ball she had six bids. " " And isn ' t that Elbert boy, the D. K. E., her cousin? " chimed Mona from the window, where she was painting a sofa-cushion. " It ' ll be good to stand in with the D. K. E ' s this year — you know Stanley ' s gone. " (This with a sly wink at lone.) " Miss Warren is such a cad-dess ! " said lone. Please think of our standards — it isn ' t diamond sun-bursts or fall hats that we ' re initiating, but girls — good, whole«!ome, sensible girls ! " " But, " pouted Winifred, " we can ' t let the Omegas have that sun-burst in the frat. " A sofa-cushion, cleverly tossed by Clara on the radiator, had a sufficiently squelching effect on the sordid Winnie. " No, but really that Warren girl isn ' t half bad, " said Irving, stretching, " she comes from Waxahachie, you know, and John told me she lives in a house with cut-glass door-knobs and gold- washed door-hinges. " lone made an impatient gesture. " You ' ve all had a say, and to my thinking you haven ' t mentioned a single girl that we ought really to be proud of — so let me have mine. What do you think of Jean Abbot, that slender, blonde girl ? You know she got special permis- sion from the Faculty to take English 8 in her Freshman year, and — " " Oh, goodness, you don ' t mean the Jean Abbot that boards over at Wil- liams ' ? You can ' t mean her ! Why, I heard Victor Mayo say that she looked like a medium ; another one of the boys said her type was one of bean-stalk intellectu- ality, " said Lucy (the same girl that had gone into greater raptures over the Pem- berton homestead than if it were to have been her own life-long residence). " No, you don ' t mean her, lone ! " " Yes, she ' s the one. Cousin Nell wrote me she was coming and that I must meet her, for she is a very extraordinary girl — she ' s a sculpturess and writes besides. You read that clever little short story of hers in the October Magazine; everybody commented on it. I firmly believe that the Omegas would have been after her long ago, had they not been hoodwinked by her rather strange way of dressing. " " It is rather a strange way, don ' t you think? " said Irving languidly raising her eyes but shooting forth a cynical gleam, perceived by all but lone herself. " ' admit that those painter blouse effects are rather ciuious, but they ' re very striking and becoming, you must admit. If we make her the rage they will be considered a most original way of gowning young females. " Clara threw in that at least she was a silk-lined eirl. and used Roeer Gallet ' s. That raised the atmosphere for a moment, but then.the laziest of Alpha ' s and their beauty, Willie Rogers, who had apparently been asleep, rose up and spake : 34 " We can ' t afford to take in a girl that the boys will not only not take up but even make fun of. You know how it hurt the Omegas to have that funny little freak, Francis— we just can ' t afford to do it, thal ' s all. She may be a fine sculp- tor, but I don ' t seem to care to have Her an Alp6a. " Willie delivered herself of this so earnestly, and as she so seldom interfered they usually gave her her way when she chose to have a hand in affairs. ' lone sighed. " Well, " she finally said, " I hate to throw up to you what I ' ve done for you, but I must claim my reward. I like that girl and I want her. The only objection you seem to have is that she isn ' t popular with the boys; you for- get that that is often the greatest mark of merit. Promise me that if she is taken particular notice of before the first of December you will let me go straight and pledge her If she isn ' t, I ' II give her up. " All heartily assented as they knew Jean would be perfectly unmolested by all masculinity. No man would be willing to risk the evening dresses she might have, to judge by her everyday clothes. The meeting finally broke up after many-sided bewailings of the fact that eligibles were so few and possessed qualities only to such a diluted extent. lone went to her room, took out a sheet of her best Alpha stationery and wrote to Stanley, of the year before, now carrying on a microscopic law practice in Wago. He had been a college hero, a D. K. E. and a staunch admirer of Miss lone. The pen flew — another precious sheet was sacrificed before she signed her name under the assertion that she was " his as ever. " Under that was scrawled hastily, " And you had better write them at once, and perhaps you might send me that other frat. pin in emeralds you asked me to wear for you. " Then, as she con- templatively moistened the lapel of the envelope with the tip of her tongue, she caught her eyes gleaming roguishly over the blue envelope in the glass opposite, and she laughed softly to herself as she pounded the letter with her little fist to make it look " less bulky. " The Greek letter world of the U. of T. was startled within the next week to see upon Miss Abbot ' s blouse a diamond-shaped pin, set in emeralds. The D.K.Es knew it, too, and like the brave men that they were, swallowed the pill. They could best afford it, besides Stanley had written his orders, and Stanley ' s orders were as a law unto the D. K. E ' s. Richard Forney was the first to risk her at an informal Saturday evening hop. He spoke of her aiterwards as one of the all-around finest girls he ' d ever met. Thus emboldened, others followed suit. Before even the stipulated weeks had passed Miss Abbott could choose between a pin set in diamonds and pearls, a sheer pearl one and a regulation. As for Omega— they were wild for her. Alpha tore her hair (collectively speak- ing). What a prize had escaped them ! Jean Abbot was the watch-word of the day! But lone, when she met Jean in the halls, smiled at her with a softening ex- pression of her eyes, and when they studied at the same table in the library, then- hands would meet under it in firm pressure. It was their little joke and they understood each other perfectly. GrETChen Rochs. 235 Sonnets Enupnion. qVALM BOPOB PX8SI -TBBeiL. Dimly and far, as watchers by the sea, On moonht cliffs, behold white wraiths of foam Walking with silver feet o ' er paths of pearl, Watching on cliffs of dreams in far Thule, Beneath the crescent of a moon that clomb Up starry ways, I saw the Dark imfurl Its curtains ; and between them shadowy Sleep, With slow, delicious languor, folded hands, And underneath her breasts broad purple bands Girding superb abundance : glad and deep The slumber of her breath arose and fell.

Lurid air and clarion calls Of trumpets at high parley with the mom ; Insatiate rage of evil ; wrath and scorn Of king-craft, and of priest-craft : sunlight falls On curse-crowned heads like scourges, and the walls Of curse-encumbered palaces are torn To earth like Jerico ' s ; and tyrants mourn And shudder, when amid their festivals. Above their revels, like the hand of Fate, Their doom thy hand is tracing. Children know Thy voice like Springtime ' s, and lovers see Love ' s blithe, bright ways imfolded. All the great Emotions, passions, raptures, through thee flow — This, Swinburne, is the memory made of thee ! 236 Autumn. Today I trod the Auttrnm fields alone; Alone with the dull, ceaseless ache and pain Of parting at my weary heart and brain; And underneath the sodden land was sown With stubble where the mowers late had mown; And overhead the limitless inane; And at my heavy heart the sick refrain. The " Parted. . .parted. . .parted, " like a moan. And there I saw my life in symbol pass ; The mown fields and the sky of bitter brass. Can this dull, hopeless day your birthday be ! Your birthday ! and no hint of Spring to lure My hopeless heart to effort toward your pure High soul that never stooped except to me? O, For Some Sheltered Valley! Utterly weary of the devious ways Found in the chart of my most luckless life, I falter like some seafarer whom the strife Of winds and waters, after many days, Has cowed to desperation : and the haze That lifts looks on a maniac : earth is rife With such wild wage of warfare to the knife ; With such stupendous wrong, and crime, and craze. O, for some sheltered valley where the beat Of time would moan like some mysterious sea ; Where moonlight-colored sunlight lay along The long, glad glades and gardens dumb with heat; And where the drunken, slumber-pollened bee lyabored alone amid his faint-heard song. tBONARD Doughty. 237 To James S.

With heart and brain in union grand, He stands undaunted in the land — I am for Hogg, by gatlins. I am for Hogg, the democrat, Who braved King Eddie and his court ; He made a good aristocrat, Yet would not wear his breeches short; He took their cash and gave them oil, Then quit him of the British soil— I am for Hogg, by gatlins.

THE lawTi of the Alpha Chi Chapter house sloped down at the back and joined that of a residence facing in the opposite direction. Only a hedge did duty for dividing line which fact served well the purpose of one wont to make stolen visits from the dwelling to her friends across the boun- dary. This was rebellious little Kitty Simp- son who, in spite of her twenty-one years, was still compelled to wear her hair in braids and forego all the pleasures and wisdom of the debutante, just because Margaret hadn ' t " caught her fish yet, " as she indignantly explained to her friends at the chapter house. Margaret was Kitty ' s older sister whose sweet blonde tace and halo of pale gold hair would have made her angelic had not a too-decided plumpness chained be- holders to the earth. Kitty, on the other hand, was of a brunette petiteness that lent itself readily to her enforced role of ingenue. Margaret was twenty-six and unattached while Kitty — well there were other reasons than loneliness which led her to brook parental discovery and wrath by her secret neighboring with the Alpha Chi ' s ; though she assured that august body that she loved each and every one of them just the same — they were all so good to her. Without the February afternoon was bleak and raw. Within the back parlor of the Alpha Chi ' s home a bright wood fire was burning. On a taboret at Kitty ' s elbow a tiny brass kettle sang over a flame of alcohol ; a great athletic-looking Alpha Chi lounged luxuriously in the Morris chair, and everything was cozy. The hall door opened and closed with a bang, and a youth in huge overcoat appeared in the parlor door-way. " Hello, Beautiful! " he said in surprise on seeing Kitty. " Throw me a cup of that, please. " And he took off the overcoat. " How did you ever make it across in the sunshine? " " The sun isn ' t shining, " she retort- ed, petulantly; then more seriously, " I just had to risk it. Harrison, please take my part ; I ' m so unhappy ! We saw in The Gossiper about your going to have the anniversary banquet and I ran right in to talk it over and get asked. And now Frank says he thinks I ' d better not come and perhaps I ' d better not even come over any more at all! The idea ! " she ended, tearful, breathless, indignant. Harrison glanced quickly at his friend with furtive surprise and intelligence. His friend wriggled uneasily, while Kitty, encouraged by their silence, entered on a new burst of eloquence in defense of her cause. But Frank, like Pharaoh, harden- ed his heart and Harrison who suddenly felt that the affair was none of his, looked 239 out on the falling mist and sipped his bouillon and broke his wafer in silent won- der. vStill, when the distant tinkle of the Simpson dinner-bell warned Kitty to draw her visit to a close, it was but a poor concession she had got to comfort her. For she had promised Frank, on condition she might come to the banquet, that she ' d never enter the chapter house again — before that occasion or afterwards. As he opened the outer door for her she made one last little plea for mercy. " Is that the very best you can do? " she asked, looking up into his eyes with a bright sad- ness. " The very best, " he answered firmly, though, she thought, with a voice of unwonted huskiness. " Good-night; remember it ' s Friday night of next week. " " Yes, Friday night of next week; good-night. " And she was gone. The banquet, a burst of light, color, soul-satisfying, self- glorifying oratory, was almost over. The one thing necessary to the Alpha Chi ' s happiness was to have Kitty make a speech herself. And for this boon they still clamored, perhaps a little more noisily than at first, especially as Kitty began to show signs of yield- ing. And suddenly sh e did. Giving her hand to her tete-k-tete, she stepped light- ly into her chair and looked about upon the company with an expression of happy amusement good to see. There was instant silence. " Now, boys, " she began, ' T don ' t think you ought to insist on ray making a speech in the face of all the rhetoric that ' s gone before. You know I ' m bound to suffer by the comparison. But for fear you ' 11 think me ungrateful, I just must tell you all what a perfectly beautiful time I ' ve had to-night. Do you realize that this is the very first party gown I ' ve ever had on? And it ' s only an old one of sister ' s that I took up. Oh, and you have no idea how much I took it up ! I thought again and again I ' d have to come in a shirt-waist. But I ' d do it all over again a dozen times for such a lovely time as I ' ve had — and I ' m not much to sew, either. And then almost at the last moment I had an awful fright. I thought I could get away all right, be- cause Mamma and Margaret went to the play with the Masons. But just as I was doing up my hair — the very first time and doesn ' t it look nice? — Papa came in and asked me if my flue was drawing all right and explained what made the one in the dining-room smoke. And I declare, he described every kind of flue and chimney that mankind ever has invented. But he kissed me good-night finally and said he was afraid I often got lonely, but my time would come by-and-by. Oh ! I felt mean. But I ' ve had a lovely time anyhow. And just to think I ' m never coming over any more ! I must tell you all good-bye to-night, forever I suppose, because I don ' t know when you ever can come to see me. But I mustn ' t make you sad. I was only going to say that because I am going awav forever and because you ' ve made me have such a lovely, lovely time to-night, I ' m going to kiss every one of you good-bye ! And it ' s getting dreadfully late, so I ' 11 begin right this minute- alphabetically. Bird Atchison ! — " A chair " fell over with a crash and Frank, pale and trembling, had caught her roughly by the wrist. " Kitty, you are mad ! " he said. " You surely didn ' t in- tend to do this thing ! " " Why, Frank! Do you pike? " she cried scornfully. " Yes, I pike, " he answered. " Come, get on your things. I ' m going to take you home. " " But, Frank, " she remonstrated feebly, looking about upon the others in a dazed sort of way, " you wouldn ' t dare, you know ! " " But I would, you know, " he answered, holding up her rain-coat with uncom- promising significance. She slipped her arms in silently, nor found words while he quickly buttoned it, threw a bit of lace over her head and led her out of the house, down the steps and through the gate. " But we ' 11 have to ring the bell! " cried Kitty. " And what if we do? " asked Frank. " But— Papa ! " cried Kitty, alarmed, " What shall I say to him? " " Let me speak to your father, Kitty, " said Frank, " and — and Kitty, I ' m not really a piker, vou know! " J. M. C. 240 To the Senior Law Class ' 03. I.

Once there was a Young American who thought he was different from other boys, which in itself is disastroifs. But this peculiar, Eccentric Personage unhappily conceived an affection for a Young Lady who preferred Huyler ' s and Beautiful Blossoms to Idiosyncrasies of Genius every Time. You betcher life that Female was dead swell. She was a fair debutante. Among her suitors there was another Young American who the Girls declared was SO cute and witty. He could tell MORE killing Jokes. Once when this Paragon passed by a butcher-shop, he said, " Here ' s where we meat. " After this the Peculiar One was distanced and barely escaped being shut out entirely. But he had Spuds and Scads. That is, he possessed Money. This gave a relish to his trite conversation about the weather, and wasn ' t Society Vulgah Now-a-days. He Quoted Blazing Poetry with an " O, for a Free Lunch " glare in his eyes turned Moon-ward. He just revelled in Swinburne and was a Fiend about Creative Art. But the Fair One tired of Quaker Meetings and Versified Lush Monologues, tho ' they took place in a Rubber-Tired Oil-Gig. This the Mystic One soon realized. His Witty Rival, who could say with Such a Cute air, " Good-Morning — Glory " and " Good- Bye — Cycle, " was leader of the Anvil Chorus. Something had to happen. Now, Somebody told the Eccentricity to be wicked ; to stop talking of honesty being the best ' policy or of how corrupt the Youth of To-day was. " Speak familiarly of jack-pots, smoke Turk cigarettes from a fawncy box, talk of the Turf, trot ' out the Family jCoat-of- Arms, Dote on Dancing, do some Deep Thinking, memorize the pedigrees of the famous actresses and have nick-names for the most infamous of them. " Thus Spake the Twentieth Century Socrates. Now the Genius ' gray matter wasn ' t off on a Vacation, so he tumbled to. With his improved tactics, he easily convinced the Beautiful Creature that his rival ' s puns were Punk, and that he wrote his letters after a model in that de- servedly popular book, " How to Win the Affections of the Opposite Sex. " (Send ten cents to Adam Swindle Publishing Company.) So when the Rival said that the best way to Make Money was to get a job in the Mint, the Quondam Genius asked if he Mint it, and the Debutante was his, until Algernon Dalrymple came into Her Life. But that ' s another Story. Harry Peyton Steger. 242 T raumerei. M orning.

The Fable of the Bright One Who Went to the University and Did Not Shine. (TRANSLATED FRoM THE GUM ARABIC MS.) ONCE there was a sallow Youth who was wielded by the handle of Per- cival. Percival was a Long Distance Racer, when it came to Night- Runs with the Musty Tomes. Early in life his shoulders attained the Student ' s Stoop, and it is probable that his Lungs looked like the Door- mat of a college boarding-house. At Loblolly Academy he distanced all compet- itors, and could hold the Head of the Spelling Class with his thumbs tied together behind him and one eye tightly closed. He could assort the Alphabet with one hand, and Sling off Gestures for " Horatius at the Bridge " with the other. At a moment ' s notice he could tell you How and When Columbus found us out, and he always kept the twelve Caesars on tap. The postmaster-constable-justice- merchant at Loblolly would Spit at the Cat and remark to the Barrel-Roost that " Percival Buncom was shore to niek his mark. " Percival Yearned to attend the University, the encyclopaedic Announcement of which he had Pored over in the Home Paper. So, borrowing some Scads and a Webster ' s Unabridged, he hied him Thither. On his arrival, he was received cooly, even coldly for one of his Brain. " But then They hadn ' t hearn tell o ' Him. Just wait until that History Class. Then he ' d shed large gobs of seasoned Learning down both aisles, " said P. to himself. Alas, the Finish of Poor I ercival Buncom was waiting to receive him with open arms. He knew what a Complex Sentence was, and that there were Eight Parts of Speech ; but he had never put his Joyful Dexter Paw on Literary Crit- icism, and " Art for Art ' s ake " gave him Mental Indigestion. His bundle of facts about the Civil W ar was well selected, but on the all-important matter of the Primaevity of Agglutinative Tongues he was strangely Silent. He had right in his clutches ' all those Problems about A and B and C doing a certain Piece of work in a certain time, " How long would it take A to do the Work? " but the leaf about the Quadrations of Curves was torn out of his book. He knew that Nero fiddled " Hot Time " while the Decima Via Fire Company worked Nobly to Save Rome, but he nourished a hollow ' oid where his Interp retative Discrimination ought to have been. He knew Right from Wrong, but was ignorant of Moral Philosophy. Moral: Prodigious Prophets had best remain in tlicir own Country, for Abroad they Meet with Others. Harry Peyton StegEr.

The Fable of the Model Young Man. OT ] NOT BY GEORGE ADE. 3 ERE was once a Model Young Man, who spent four Years of his Father ' s Money at the University, having (as he, himself, would have said) a High Old Time and playing the Devil generally, to say nothing of Poker and many other little Games on the Side. At Home his Auntie had called him her Pet, and knew that her darling Lennie would never take up with the wild Ways of the Sporty Set. The Evening before he pulled out she had a long Talk with him about his Career, telling him he must never play Cards, nor smoke Cigars, nor get boozy. She reminded him of Thomas Filton, who had gone through College intact without playing Football or becoming brutalized by any other pernicious Influence. Thomas had made a grand Success of Life and was now a Missionary to the Hottentots in the jungles of the dusky Continent. She did not add that though the Sunday School Teacher called Thomas a noble Youth, the Girls called him a stick. Now Lennie was not one of the Sticky Kind. He had not been inside the classic Walls very long before he found his Level, and settled down to enjoy Life and take Things easy. His Reputation soon spread over the whole University and the Boys all agreed that he was about the most promising Specimen they had struck up with in many a long old Day. He busted on five Courses the First Rattle out of the Box and touched the Old Man for Eight Hundred, which Pater Coughed up with as good Grace as he could, mixed with a few gentle Reminders to his Progeny to be a little more economical and do better next Year, under Penalty of the C otton Patch. Lennie did not forget. The next September our youthful Hero entered the Lists for all that was com- ing to him. Remembering his Maiden Auntie ' s advice not to be worldly-minded, the first Month after his Arrival in Austin he united with a German Club, which was going to begin Operations before a great While ; and that the Religious side of his Make-up might have still more time to blossom he registered for only three Courses, which let him take in two Theatres a Week more than he had counted on. The Spirit of Investigation and Frumentum had called Lennie to go on the Road and Lennie was there with the Goods. He worked inductively, investigating Every Thing personally from Anheuser-Busch to Zig-Zag. Many of his Discoveries were striking in the Extreme. Fame seemed waiting to Crown her Son, as was remark- ed on a previous Occasion of La Salle or Somebody else who figured in the History of our State. But Lennie came near losing out for good, as Lord Bacon and the Elder Pliny had done before him for nosing around in Matters which did not con- cern them. His innate Love of Knowledge for Knowledge ' s sake, with the En- treaties of some scholarly Friends, was responsible for getting him into a " lyate Unpleasantness " in which the Blues finally won out. He did not, like old Man Pliny, go to fooling with a Volcano, nor yet, like Lord Bacon, stoop so low as to pocket a Boodle ; but what he did do was to become a Party to the heinous Crime of forming a Beer Syndicate. In Texas there are Prejudices against such Things, and he soon found himself up against it. He was invited to retire from the public service and become once again a himible Private Citizen. That got him. The next night was (till two o ' clock) spent in Repentance, Tears, and a Beer Hall ; these were his weakest Moments, and in his FraLHy he almost wished he hadn ' t done it. His Dreams were haimted by Visions of that Merry old Soul, King Cotton, whose Subject he felt that he — a free-bom American — could never be, and ever look like any Thing again. When he awoke, however, he took Cour- age to press on, realizing that the old Gov. was dead easy, if he could only work him right. He Chopped no Cotton that Spring. How or where he spent the Weeks and Months of his Reprobation is no Business of ours, gentle Reader. The third Year was like unto the First. The foiu-th Year was like unto the Third. In those Days the Land was in hard Lines : Trusts, Combines, Syndicates, Corporations, Mergers, and all the Phantasmagoric Incubi (or Incubuses, the Dictionary says, of the Populists ' Nightmare struck the Country like a thousand of Brick. From Arkansaw round about unto Van Zandt and from the Rivers to the Ends of the Earth the oppressed People were putting up their Spiel to a Re- publican Administration that would not see it as the Sovereign People said see it. It was plain that Something was going to bust somehow, somewhere, and the Side that could buy the most Brains and Wire-pulling would take the Drinks. The Sovereign People demanded to cuss the Republicans out and swear Something else in, in its stead. The Sovereign Trusts tacitly vociferated their Right to exist and rob the People, in Accordance with the Laws of the Survival of the Fittest and the Republican Party. They were having it Nip and Tuck, the Score being about Three to Three in Favor of the People, when the President of the Billion Dollar Cravat Trust dis- covered an un-degreed College Genius in the Person of Lennie. But Lennie had the Knowledge, and consequently looked Good to the Trust Gang; they decided to offer him two Cool Millions to get them out of their Scrape. Being in Need of Pin Money to buy Booze with, he accepted the job; in less than Five Weeks the People were paying eighty-three Cents for Neckties and for other Things in Pro- portion, while the Great Octopus had its feelers safely tangled around the Nation- al Capitol.

O laurel tree so slender, emerald -crowned, Fierce tempests ' round thee rage ; thy strength is real. On high in youthful strength thy branches tower, Crowned with their foliage fresh, a living bower ; Above thy head high heaven ' s blue vault extends ' Below thee sighs a fragile passion flower. Intrepid one, ne ' er let thy brave soul cower, With head uplift, fear not the storm-cloud ' s lower Of fierce adversity ; but dauntless stand, Strong like the tree, and tender as the flower. No golden guerdon of a king I crave, Nor jewels brought from earth ' s remotest cave ; Nor as a holy saint to be revered. Beneath the dark cathedral ' s hallowed nave. If care not for dominion nor for power ; My soul longs for no other earthly dower, Save, on my lowly tomb to lay entwined, wreath of laurel and a passion flower. Lii LiAN L. Greer. To My Alma Mater.

It is almost earthly ! At its best but half divine ; Potent love, ah ! love supernal Wafted from the God eternal, Worlds have worshiped at thy shrine. Far beyond some roving planet, Wand ' ring in the realms of night. In the realms of unkenned myst ' ry Unseen and undreamed of hist ' ry The altar-fires of love bum bright. Evening glories fall around thee ; Piu-ple clover at thy feet Sends its perfume up before thee, Wanton breezes waft it o ' er thee, ' Tis an incense rare and sweet. So my love biu-ns on its altar Perfumed incense, faint and sweet, That ascends before thee lightly, As the altar-fires bum brightly — Lo! my heart is at thy feet. 248 Lillian L. Grebr. N A-BTiTus ' 249 Chronicle and Comment. The Cactus 1903 The Athletic Association. From the day we first entered these classic corridors, a Freshman — young, tender, trustful — and surrendered our library deposit upon promise of free use of the elevator and tennis courts, the debts and demands of the Athletic Association have hovered over us like the wing of a great, black bird. We have had the relish knocked from our humble dish of chile and the flavor expelled from our stein by the insinu- ating and ever present thought that what we thus spent might go to alleviate the Association ' s chronic complaint — lack of funds. A cast-iron conscience, indeed, is the one not softened in this atmosphere of self-immolation. Tempered and tough- ened, in sooth, must be the individual who pays $20.00 for board when he could chew at B. Hall and donate the difference to the divine cause of athletics. We recall with shame those drives with our Dulcinea and those tickets to King Dodo, while even at that time the Association was crying for coin. We will never be short again. We will cough up till we have a hemor- rhage in order that this organization may go blithely on its way absorbing cash and sympathy and engendering deficits and enthusiasm. The Cactus does not begrudge the cash it has emptied in the Association ' s coffers. It is true the money might have been used to beautif v and adorn its own pages and make it more pre- sentable, but the Cactus has long since learned that the essence of college spirit and patriotism is sacrifice in be- half of athletics. This y ear the Cac- tus parts company with the Associa- tion more in sorrow than in anger, knowing full well that it is more bless- ed to give than to receiv ' e. A Special Course for Women, The education of women in a uni- versity is fraught with danger to the race. This danger is the more im- minent in that people generally are not aware of it. Under the old regime women were taught accomplishments such as dancing, music, painting, cook- ing and other things tending to make them attractive to men, and to instill into their minds the love of home and children. In universities women are turned loose in libraries which are chuck-full of dangerous theories, and are encouraged to study bugs, worms, political science, the classics and many other things having no bearing what- ever upon domestic felicity. These things absorbing her interest what place can home and husband hope to gain in her affections ? In this, as in other crises, Drs. Fay and Battle come forward to contribute what they can to the solution of this threatening problem — the former an- nouncing a course of lectures on " Why People Should Pair " and " Love— the 25D Hope of the Race " ; the latter declares himself willing to give practical demonstrations in the Ancient Art of Cooking if a sufficient number of young ladies register for the course. Dr. Harper kindly offers the use of the Chemical Laboratory for this purpose. Drs. Penick, Bray and Benedict modestly offer their services in giving sidelights on the " Care of Babies, " and volunteer much inside information on the " Ways and Doings of Children. " This is a move in the right direction. It cannot fail to meet with the appro- bation and hearty co-operation of every thoughtful student in the uni- versity. Bonner ' s Beautiful Verse. We have received a beautiful pink volume of gilt-edge round delays and invoice, and unhesitatingly pronounce them for we both speak and read English, even the chiastic variety. We were especially smitten with those beautiful allusions to classic creatures of mythology, with whom the poet appears to be so intimate. The stanza particularly soul-melting is: " O, can a Muse amuse a Muse Or grace a graceful Grace? O, can a fuse refuse a fuse, A face deface a face? These are questions which we all look to the author and his confrere, G. C. E., to answer. His gas-metre is simply asphyxiating in its ecstacy. His accents and incense blend to form perfect nonsense. The illiteration is nonpareil. ' Pear ' s Soap, ' ' Quaker Oats ' and ' Force ' are actually paying money for verse very little superior. Heard in the G rridors. If the editor of the Texan hears in the corridors all he says he does, his ears are considerably longer than our own. We have listened with a forty-five in our trousers and a still stiletto up our sleeve for some brute to bawl out one of those jokes, but in vain. We have come to believe that these get-offs ferment in and are dis- charged from the disordered brain of some member of the Texan staff. We are aware that this accusation may call for " shot-guns at ten paces " or " pis- tols at five, " yet in the words of the valiant Horatius, " How could a man die better? " We realize this " Heard in the Corridors " is the very devil of a thing to accuse a fellow-student of, yet we leave it to the arbitrament of the fair-minded if it is not better for the disease to be localized, than for the outside world to think the student body afflicted with a constitutional malady. After emerging from this weekly cataclysm of prep-school inanities we can ' t tell a blue-bonnet from a sunflower nor distinguish between the gladsome song of the mocking- bird and Grueber filing a saw down in the Physics department; " love ' s young dream " becomes a gruesome nightmare, everything looks sallow, and life gives out a jangled strain. If the individual who writes these things really hears them, let ' s rope him and plug up his ears ; if he " does ' em " out of his own head, for heaven ' s sake let ' s confine him during these virulent attacks of merrymania The Kurious Katsumana Klub. Little known, silent and secrete as the woodland rivulet, the Katsumana, has been running along for some time. Know, ye pessimists, that there is a garden blooming in our literary waste ; know, ye moles, that there is a literary constellation twinkling right here among us. A leaf from the minute- book of this organization was found blowing about the corridors— " Lo, laughing, she says, into the world I blow, " from which fact we deduce that the minute-book is defectively bound, and that the Klub has a care- less secretary. Further than this, like the recalcitrant witness, we know nothing. What goes before this page, what comes after, we can only sur- mise. Here it is : 251 sion then followed participated in by Kats Embry and Bearon Shonner, and Misses Cupboard and Fetchin Frocks. Kat E. stoutly defended his poem, claim- ing Poe as his warrant for the use of cer- tain expressions which, it was charged, conveyed no meaning whatever. He warmly intimated that there were certain people who could not understand Poe, and whose intellectual calibre was far better suited to a contemplation of the deep wisdom contained in the melodious rhymes of Mother Goose than to a criti- cism of Poe and his peers. Kat Shonner supported the poet, and declared himself perfectly charmed with the production just read. He wished, he said, particularly to commend a number of the poet ' s apt phrases. " Hot Heat " he asserted, was peculiarly felicitous. It wasn ' t this old common heat which we feel from the fire in the winter, nor that which old Sol treats us to on the 20th of August, but hot heat. " Notice the allitera- tion of the phrase " continued Shonner warmly, " a more forceful, a more ex- pressive, a more euphonious combination is seldom found even on the pages of our most distinguished literary artists. ' ' Our worthy critic, Fetchin Frocks, ris- ing, demurred decidedly to the foregoing opinion. She couldn ' t see for the life of her, she said, how any heat could help being hot, and pronounced " The Life- Day of the Epicure " a dismal attempt atbe-dog-if-she-knew-what. " ' AndClumps of cloying rhyme, ' " she continued, " for goodness sake what does it mean? As well say Jumps of joying jime — there is your meter, there is your alliteration, there is your rhyme, and as for the mean- ing — it means as much. No wonder he died " said she, growing a trifle sarcastic — " I came very near it. " Lifting her finger in the poet ' s direction she exclaim- ed, " O, there is a poet in embry, O, " and resumed her seat. Five minutes later, it having been whispered around that there was a pun in the last remark, the club in unison chuckled three chucks . Scenting dissension and unseemly mer- riment among the members. Father Grey cast oil on the troubled waters by reading a dramatic production of his own which So ends this interesting page from the minutes of the Kurious Katsumana Klub. The laity are, of course, fired with curiosity, and will inquire, but in vain ; the envious will make sarcas- tic remarks, but they will pass unheed- ed ; the Katsumana has great work to do and it will do it. Even this passing glimpse into the minutes of the Klub has doubtless clarified certain expres- sions of our own Embry hitherto Chinese to the uninitiate.

" I fear some will think that young Neddy was rash. And assert the young squirt should be thrashed with a lash ; But, as young Neddy thought, A bad cold papa caught. And he sneezed and he wheezed till he coughed up the cash. According to the ancient chronicle, the Deluge occurred some 5,000 years ago.

Yes, E., always wear your flat hat and dress your hair low in the neck, so that you will seem less tall when in the company of X, L. L. G. — Your interesting problem may well perplex you. Yes, a poet has finer susceptibilities than an ord - inary man and his eccentricities should therefore be pardoned. A. G. — You ask how ma} ' a girl seem aristocratic ? You suggest cutting your acquaintances and walking with head thrown back. This is a good be- ginning — but you should make it a point never to be seen speaking with or greeting any one who does not pos- sess a pin. Miss C. — He may be an excellent young man, even if what you allege is true. His position in the University ought to make you proud of his prefer- ence, and besides, remember the honor he can confer on the tenth of June. A. J. — No, I see no harm in your meeting D. in the library occasionally. But wouldn ' t it be well to advise him to wear a sweater not so nearly the color of his hair, and more becoming to his complexion. H. P. — Your mother objects to your receiving company before your eighteenth year, but there can surely be no objection to your entertaining in the library, nor should I consider it wrong to accept kodak view-books and little favors of that sort. L. C. — No, there is no need of taking a chaperone to the polit. class with you, provided you maintain your usual dignified bearing. M - - y, your case is a puzzling one. If you cannot decide between the two, it is probable that you are not in love with either one. Do not let the black eyes of the one blind you to the solid qualities of the other. M. R. — It is unfortunate that the young man you mention has not been elected Final Ball President. But since he has an important chairman- ship, it might be well to continue to exert your charms in that direction.

This action is brought in this court by the Fairies of the Eastern Hills, charging that one Clyde F. Winn did maliciously and with premeditated intent disturb the quiet and peace of the sylvan solitudes by loud and vociferous noises unpleasant to hear ; that such loud and vociferous noises, as of one trying to speak, were often repeated, so that peace and rest could not be had. The plaintiffs beg that the said Clyde F. Winn be restrained in the future. No brief for the defendant is submitted. The case is continued imtil next term. All the Judges present and concur- ring. No. 2, The STATe op Texas versus Bush Wofford. This is a criminal action brought by the State of Texas against one B. Wof- ford, a little boy who, about January i, 1903, ran away from his mamma. The facts clearly show that the defendant should be under maternal care. No reward has been offered for his return. x Should any one seeking the culprit come upon him in hiding behind a chair or in the grass he will know him by his loud laugh. No. 3. The State op Texas versus Jack Hubbard, alias " Grace Hali. " Jack, alias " Belmont " Jack. The facts in this case are peculiar and interesting. The charge against the noted desperado is, as usual, for heartbreaking. The facts show, so far as the case has been examined, that the terrible Jack, with twenty-one of his daredevil confederates, on the evening of November 15, 1902, swooped down upon a party of young ladies at Belmont College, capturing each a heart. But httle of the booty has been recovered. The case is now before the jury. The eyes of Texas are upon the handsome young man who has gained such fame in the piracy of hearts. No. 4. The Austin Light and Power Company versus Rembert Gary Wat- son. The action is brought by the Light and Power Company of Austin against R. G. Watson for damages sustained in violation of their charter, which guaran- tees to them the sole and exclusive right to light the City of Austin. The plam- 257 tiffs pray that if the luminous gentleman can not be restrained, that he keep his head covered when on the street as he sorely interferes with their custom. This case was dismissed, as it is a tendency against public policy tending to foster monopolies and to suppress lawful competition. No. 5. Hall Committee et al. versus Lewis Johnson, alias Hot Air Johnson Gas Works. The suit is brought by the plaintiffs against the Hot Air Johnson Gas Com- pany enjoining the said Hot Air Johnson to repair said gas works and prevent the escape of said gas. The facts show that in the vicinity of the gas works it is impossible to enjoy peace and life because of the constantly escaping volumes of gas ; that the said Johnson Gas Works has become a nuisance to the community. The court finds for the plaintiffs and process will be issued for the abatement of the nuisance. No. 6. The State of Texas versus Ivanhoe Martin. The defendant in this case is charged with an aggravated assault with intent to commit incendiarism, the specific offense being an attempt to set society afire. There is shown a peculiar persistence on the part of the defendant to carry out his plans. It developed on trial that the defendant had never tried to keep his crime secret, but had regularly spoken of it at least a dozen times a day. The offense has been often committed and the culprit, when apprehended, was vainly endeavoring to create a flame in the society world. The final consummation of the offense was prevented by the failure of the defendant, in view of the peculiar structure of society, to obtain combustible material. No. 7. All-With-Whom-He-Comes-in-Contact versus Forrest Lumpkin. Sleepy Robertson and J. P. Starnes for the defendant. The suit is brought by the plaintiffs in this court asking that Forrest Lump- kin, a young biped of the genus Homo, be abated as a general and continued nuisance. The plaintiffs are very positive in their charges and ardent in their pleas. The defendant is charged with disturbing, with malice aforethought, everybody ' s ancient air with loud, long, and oft-repeated noises, sounds, and aerial disturbances exceedingly unpleasant and exasperating. There is a preponderance of evidence showing that the said Forrest Lumpkin, having lost intelligent control of his mouth and members, has become permeated with a spirit of over-officious- ness, and his presence, by reason of its noise and ubiquity, has become obnoxious to all. The witnesses strongly corroborated each other and the testimony makes in all a very strong case against the defendant. Addendum: Upon motion, the attorneys for the defendant are seeking to establish partial insanity. Upon this issue rests the outcome of the case. 258 The Docket for Next Week. Monday a. m. The State of Texas ver tw Clifford Huggins. Murder. The defendant is indicted for murder in the first degree for wantonly and brutally killing, slaying, and depriving of life venerable Father Time, with malice afore- thought, openly expressed.

Those Questionnaires, LIKE many other fools we asked entirely too many questions. While inter- esting statistics were obtained from ' some of the questions, there were others upon which evidently very few students held opinions which they cared to express. Logical writers agree that statistics amount to noth- ing if a sufficient number of instances are not taken into consid eration Therefore we omit any reference to questions not answered bv a consid- erable number of students. FACULTY AND THINGS IN GENERAL. As to the elevator, one ingenious person suggested the Eck Easterwood be put under the thing and compelled to raise her up and let her down ; but many thought it a pleasant place to pass away time. The changes suggested are decidedly too numerous to mention. No two peo- ple want the same thing. Questionnaires answered in bold, bad handwriting, invariably said Judge Townes was the most influential. Occasionally we find written opposite this guess " Dr. Battle, " in small, delicate, chirography; but the majority is divided be- tween Drs. Mezes and Benedict. It is strange that few answered No. 5, showing that there is no department considered indispensable ; while no one fails to tell which he thinks the most dis- pensable. " Oratory " receives a preponderance of the votes, bilt there are several other departments which run it a close race. Judge Simpkins beats Dr. Fay three votes for handsomest professor. Which Bachelor professor is most popular with the co-eds ? Says one in rhyme : " The girls all say It ' s young Mr. Gray. " But rhymsters are not always reasoners. A careful count shows that even Eno leads Gray by ten votes, while both these candidates for feminine favor are distanced by the reticent, if somewhat sprucy, young French teacher. Which will marry first? Our rhymster is also a punster. Says he: " How do w-Eno? and actual count reveals Eno in the lead. The co-ed ' s " dorm " strikes some as being like a wholesale grocery store; while others trace a fanciful resemblance between it and an overgrown ice-box. We trust that the lovers of the future will not find it so. HABITS, TASTES AND SENTIMENTS. Some 76% of our students were honest and admitted that they drank; while 12% own up in the matter of the " cubes. " Most of the fellows are here for a good time, while several co-eds in a disguised hand, confess that they are here to marry. Budley Fisher states positively that he is good-looking, but the majority are uncertain ; the co-eds as a rule refuse to commit themselves. " The Good Old Summer Time " is ' Varsity ' s favorite tune; ' Varsity ' s oaths are decidedly Anglo-saxon and unprintable. 261 Certain co-eds declare the sororities strike them with " knocks " ; while some uncouth junior law defines them as a ' Varsity ailment, confined, thank God, to the Academic Department. FELLOW-STUDENTS. B,eck is universally conceded to be the most self-important character about the University. Conner and Ham tie up on the dress proposition. Booth Merrill is the next high man. Congratulate Joe Hatchitt on being the most representative student; and con- sole Horace Trippett on being voted ugliest. Horace must have suspected it, for his picture is unobtainable. Bartholomew catches the popular fancy as a wire-puller ; True is considered the most bilious pessimist; Britt Porter and Duncan divide the vote on " the handsomest foot-ball hero. " Every one has an opinion as to the prettiest girl, and strange to say, the vote was badly split. We devote a couple of pages in another part of the Cactus to the pictures of the nine girls receiving the most votes. One gentleman avers that he counted nine fraternity pins under the lapel of a certain fay ' s jacket, and that one was in sight: total, ten. We are inclined to consider this an exaggeration. This same young lady, however, is considered by 70% of those answering this question, to be the most extensive dealer in fraternity jewelry in school. Booth Merrill is considered the most successful flirt in school, and, by the co-eds, the most " torrid proposition " extant. The wise will deduce a valuable hint from these two facts taken in conjunction " The most pronounced lobster? " — Lewis Johnson won in a walk. The best answered questionnaires were written in bad pencil, all around and across so as to make a facsimile reproduction of any of them impracticable.

Another mile-stone passed that brings us JZ nearer the journey ' s end. Another round has been climbed up the lacf J der that leads to our coveted goal, the cap and gown. The neighboring Commencement is twofold: it means a looking backward, a vision of the year just passed; and a looking forward, a vision of the future. A vision of the passing year ! ' Tis crowded, we trust, with pleasant|memories of days well spent. None of us will challenge the statement that this college life of ours is busy. Every hour brings its duty, either of lecture or laboratory or study; and, in accordance with the inexorable law of the survival of the fittest, the idlers and drones are left behind in this swift series of tasks. Pardon our conceit, but we believe our good friend and contemporary, Teddy Roosevelt, must have been studying medicine when he first used that expression about the " strenuous life. " He is surely speaking from experience. But what has this new year brought us? First, it brought the old students back to in dulge in sweet recollections of last year ' s work, and to enjoy those love- feasts of the soul that are possible only to us who have dipped our fingers together in the " dead man ' s grease " ; who in imison have juggled the dry and rattling bones, and, in the chemical laboratory, have breathed sulphurous acid fumes that must surely resemble his satanic majesty ' s native air. Secondly, it has brought us — the Freshmen. Perhaps I ought to have men- tioned them first. Like the " banks and braes of bonnyjjDoon, " they are quite " fresh and fair. " At least they are fresh. Well, so were we all once as these are now. In fact, some of us liked it so well that we spent two years in the Freshman class. That shows how much in love with oiu- work we were. The present Fresh- man class is an earnest set of men, and we shall expect great things of them. What next? The new year has made us take up the " White Man ' s Burden, " which is caring for the black man. We have opened the new negro hospital, where the learned Seniors may successfully treat those ills that negro flesh is heir to, and where all the suffering " sons of Ham " may come to seek the " Balm of Gilead. " What next? Many, many things pass before my eyes. Memories of Buffalo Bill; of the dog and pony show (only Freshmen went to the latter) ; of the visit of the great iron-clads, those fierce sea-dogs whose low growl may well fill the nations with due respect for " Uncle Sam " ; memories of dreaded floods, of sea-walls slowly rising; of tropic storms with lightning flashes; and so the long train of memories slowly passes by. I could not name them all. We pause a moment. Let each one dwell on the things that please him most, and carry them with him to cheer him on the way next year. Next year? The vision of the future! It is not our purpose to indulge m 271 vague prophecies of the years to come. We are all builders of air-castles to a cer- tain extent, and dream of things that never come. Yet " dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams? " Our college will surely have an increased attendance. Texas men will cease to go to other States to study medicine, and those States will send students to us. Not only will we increase in numbers, but our facilities, already good, will be even greater than at present. Each of the laboratories needs a separate building. The chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories especially should be moved from their present cramped positions to more commodious quarters. The pathological museum is well worthy of a special hall. Our library should occupy at least half of the first floor, for new books are increasing, and we will soon need more space. Under its present management, the library is becoming popular with the students, who value it not only for its access to the necessary reference books, but also as a place for quiet study. To improve our facilities, we need a more generous support. There are many doors that open but to golden keys, and if the gold be not lacking, the doors will soon be standing ajar ; and fair Science, that modest maid, shall smile upon us, and shall lead us on with unfaltering footsteps along secret paths undreamed of, and knowledge shall truly grow from more to more. This we hold to be no idle fancy, no dream of the distant future, but facts to be realized in the next few years of our progress. The past; the future. A word of the present. Commencement! There ' s magic in the sound. At that word the Seniors stand erect. We all hope to be Seniors " some day, " so we will look at the present class. There is a larger number of graduates this session than for several years past, both in medicine and pharmacy — about double the nmnber of last year. This is evidence of the appreciation the students have for a degree from this college. These men have worked hard ; they have bravely fought many battles, and the prize is now in sight. As they near the goal we lift our hats and stand aside. Past; present; future. Thus ends my dream. Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior, — we will all join hands and sing, and as the tide slowly crosses the harbor bar the soft Gulf breeze shall waft our melody across the channel and up the mainland, and the burden of our song shall be: " Vive la, vive la, vive la more, Vive la ' Varsity!

" A little learning scattered o ' er A frolic of four years or more ; Then — presto, change! — and you create The sober college graduate. " THE class of ' 03 began its humble existence with a membership 01 ninety-three, the largest Freshman Class in Medicine since that of 1896. We were indeed typical Freshmen. The jibes of the upper classmen humiliated us, the strange and ghastly scenes in the dissecting-hall appall- ed us, and from the various lecture chairs alarming words were hurled at us in end- less confusion. Yet we plodded on — a new life had opened up before us, and out of the chaos the evolution of the prospective Doctor of Medicine went on apace. Difficulties were encountered and overcome; sacrifices were made, and little by little up the hillside of medical knowledge we ascended. After the first year ' s work many became disheartened with the result of their labors and decided to go elsewhere to school, or give up the study of medicine; some few decided they knew enough already to practice; and others were fright- ened away by the effects of the storm of September, 1900 ; so that in our Sophomore year there were only about forty members to matriculate. Since the Sophomore year the class has held its own in numbers remarkably well, as there are now in the class thirty-five battle-scarred warriors who will don the cap and gown in May. We have practically assumed that professional air that is expected of us by the laity, and the title, " Doctor " is received with more dignity and poise than when we were Jimiors. The members of the class have stood shoulder to shoulder since its organization, and we have just right to be proud of our record for the past three years, and shall endeavor to hold up this record throughout our last year. While we know there are many misspent hours and wasted opportunities behind us, yet we feel we have worked faithfully and well during the past four years, and have been well grounded in knowledge and truth, which has fitted us to face life as competent Doctors of Medicine. For our Faculty, who have labored so untiringly for our welfare, we have the highest admiration and respect, and shall try to carry out in our lives the high principles they have endeavored to impress upon us. As classmates, we are soon to leave behind us close ties of friendship and cher- ished college associations; but though time and distance may separate us, we will still be drawn together in spirit, and in memory we will often live over again our happy days at college.

THE earnest hand of knowledge, guided by vig ilant care, has placed Class ' 05 one step farther into the realm of learning ' s majestic influence. With a body of seventy-five members struggling against the infectious microbes, " Follies of Time, " we tasted the bitters and sweets of our Freshman year, and with only thirty-eight veterans remaining, we have emerged from the mist of our former selves to plunge into the second year of our thosen profession with stronger determinations and fitter ambitions, to see with clearer eyes and a more apprecia- tive mind the enemies of our law-abiding and peace-loving corpuscles. Chemistry, with its novelties, as well as disagreeable features, has been reviewed from its simple elements through its sorely vexing organic and inorganic com- pounds, which, bringing us to the exploring stage, we are content as physicians to leave in the hands of the chemist. The blastoderm, in all its simplicity, has been watched day by day as its tiny, seemingly conscious, constituents massed themselves into layers and cords; and further, we have followed with half-toned belief these simple structures as they glided into intricate tissues — specialized organs — all living and working under the same influence that divided the first cell. Frogs, devoid of their sensitiveness, have under electric dischajges of varying intensity, given us an appreciable idea of the fathomless depth of that phenomenon — Life — and created within us a longing for a better understanding of the physio- logical functions of the various parts of our being. As Anatomists, we hav e dwelt in the halls of the lateral ventricles, roamed in the forests of the cerebellum, and, with knives keen to the very point, have searched in almost overwhelming despair for Vicq d ' Azyr. Into the wilderness of muscle, nerve, artery, and gland, our eyes have peered and forceps passed, and with one voice we have exclaimed, " Sublime! " In Pathology, through high-magnifying powers, the minute cells of many shapes and kinds, guards and workers, we have observed in their delicate, yet persistent efi " orts to replace what antagonistic factors have destroyed, and by degrees — tire- lessly — to restore our system to its normal condition. Again, the results of unknown causes have, through the medium of light, fallen upon our sensitive retinae and been reflected to our cogitative areas in hope of explanation, but nay — the results are all we know. And, too, under an eye that is as sharp as his knowledge is deep, we are mysti- fied by the revelation of marvelous actions of authentically recognized drugs, the helpers of Nature. Half through, we are indulging in reminiscences of the past, enjoying the pleas- ures afltorded by class union at present, and looking with earnest wishes straight- way into the future. Mentally, we are learning to study, to reason, to act ; morally, we are endeav- oring to ameliorate our condition by eliminating those untrustworthy motives so deleterious to our most worthv calling — to make fairest things not those which seem, but are.

One balmv September day, when the sun was shining as only the sun in Gal- lyeston can shine, thirty timid, frightened-looking students filed in to the " Upper JEast " to the accompaniment of derisive yells of " Fresh! " " I want my mamma! " iand " Mills! " and blood-curdling catcalls. But this was the Junior Pharmacy Glass, destined, we are positive, to shed a luster on the art of Pharmacy in the ages to come How this devoted band regained their respective strongholds is not known. No one remembers. Monday we again emerged and received our first •lesson in the technicalities of our profession. We were taught the uses of our eyes, ears, nose, and hands. We heard for the first time that sentence which seems to be the foundation-stone of Pharmacy : " Keep your preparations in square, amber- colored bottles, rubber-stoppered, and in the dark. " Some note-books revealed the fact that the injunction was to keep them in rubber bottles with square amber ; corks. But Pharmacy was just one of the things we were destined to master. Next • came Materia Medica, an awful, forbidding subject; but ere long we had so far pro- ' gressed as to able to administer anesthetic gases by means of a teaspoon. With ; Physics, it was just a repetition of conquests. Not content with the strides of mod- iem inventors, one of the galaxy of stars devised for examination purposes an hydraulic ram. It is claimed by the inventor that this is a superior instrument for ;drawing water off the lungs, heart, and liver. In Chemistry, too, we excelled. The Fresh. Meds., in sheer envy, actually turned a shade greener at the success of our explosions and the heroic manner in which we escaped. Botany came last, but not least, it is safe to predict that while the world stands we will never forget the answers to the almost historic questions: " What is a wood bundle, a bast fiber, a sieve cell? " We have been cartooned ; we have been ridiculed; we have furnished material for rushes ; we have been berated, when in festive mood we cast aside the dull cares of student life and in a body attended the " Wild West vShow " ; reviled by the all- wise Senior Pharms. ; envied by our verdant cousins, the Freshman Meds. ; termed " Fresh " by the choleric Sophs. ; pitied by the Juniors ; and scorned by that stately, dignified set, the Seniors; we have lived through it all; aye, we have even thrived upon their spleen and discomfiture. Such is our greatness, congeniality, progressiveness, and general wisdom that the present Junior Pharmacy Class will be held up to the future generations of pharmacists as one of the best the University of Texas has ever produced. 298 ALWAYS READY. 299 The John Sealy Hospital.

It is strictly of the students, for the students, and by the students. With- in certain prescribed and proper limits, we are allowed to govern our- selves. It is owing to this body that the maintenance of high standards and principles is possible, for in it the general opinion of the students may be express- ed, and conduct unworthy of members of this institution may be promptly con- demned and the offender punished by student vote. It is in the Council that the students may assemble to discuss those matters that . ' pertain to our interests and to plan enterprises for our mutual good, and the welfare of the school, as far as it is in our power to do so. And if we sometimes make mistakes, it is merely because it is human to err, and not that our purpose is lacking to make our college as fine as any — yes, even more, the best — in our land. The Council publishes a monthly magazine, called the University Medical, which we endeavor to make a worthy representative of our school, and to which both thejprofessors and the students make contributions. With the sympathy and aid of the Faculty, with efficient officers, and with a strong student sentiment behind it, we should preserve in this organization the force in student affairs that it was intended to be, and so establish and maintain the high ideals, not only of college life, but those that shall better fit us to do our part of the work that lies before us.

" In 1897, by the munificence of Mr. G. W. Brackenridge, of this State, there was presented to the Medical Department of the University of Texas a handsome and commodious building, known as University Hall. Two purposes were sought to be fulfilled by the gift. First, that the comforts of a home should be provided such women students of this department as might desire to take advantage of it at a minimum cost; second, it was desired to provide room for a general restaurant for the entire student body, to be conducted upon the most economical plan con- sistent with reasonable comfort. " The University Hall is a beautiful three-story brick building, situated near the Medical College and the Hospital. The second and third stories are occupied by lady students, while the first floor is used as a dining-hall. On this floor is sit- uated, also, the University Book Store. The management of the Hall is in the hands of the students themselves, who annually elect the officers and committees, whose duty it shall be to attend to the affairs of the different departments of the Club. Students are appointed to act as waiters, thus earning their board at the hall. The Book Store is also a student enterprise, and books and stationery are furnished at reduced prices. By the wise management of the officers and the hearty cooperation of the mem- bers, the Hall Club has enjoyed a season of unprecedented prosperity this session. We have had good board at low rates, and yet we now have on hand a handsome surplus set aside as a sinking fund. 3»i Young Men ' s Christian Association. Medical Department, U. of T.

Hatchitt writes: Having suffered from a compound conglomeration of various and sundry ob- noxious student ills ever since I entered the University, I have taken at different times great quantities of Cactine in its different forms. I have often despaired but my friends have faith in the remedy, and continue to dose it out to me hoping that the next dose will have the desired effect. What am I to do ? FROM SAN ANTONIO. Cactine Remedy Co. : Gentlemen : Some three years ago our daughter was very peculiarly affected. She grew very mannish in her ways and was so rude as to say at one time, " Oh, pshaw! " and at another time, " By George! " We were advised by our friends to put her in the University under your famous Cactine Treatment. Three years have done their work and 1 cannot speak in terms that will express my gratitude. Now Lilly Willy is as lady-like as you please. Indeed she is the life of the sewing circles and the moving spirit of the new Crochet Club just organized. Much honor to your remedy. Mrs. Weaker. ANOTHER ORDER FROM B. HALL. Cactine Remedy Co. Gentlemen : I have been a long sufferer from that malignant cranial disease, lamit. Lately I have had a severe attack of that smart feeling which has been often repeated of late. On the advice of friends, who desire that I be Able to Run Things next year, I send to you for four boxes of Cactine Pleasant Pellets for Phoolish People ; also please send me ten pounds of your famous Cactine Meal Poultice for my head. I realize that these are extra large individual orders, but remember, dear Doctor, that my case is an extra bad one and demands immediate attention, and, I hope, relief. Most respectfully, Adrian Pool. 330 PRICKLY PEAR PLEASANT PURGATIVE PELLETS FOR INTERNAL FRATERNAL TROUBLES. If any Fraternity during the excitement of the rushing season last fall inad- vertently swallowed material that it cannot digest, we strongly advise a course of our Pleasant Pellets. Testimonials as to the efficiency of this cure are naturally of a confidential nature, but the generally recognized virtue of all the Cactine Remedies should warrant any Fraternity so afflicted in giving us a trial. EASY STREET THROUGH THE UNIVERSITY! fA ' S WITHOUT STUDY. TOBOGGAN SLIDE TO GRADUATION. TRY OUR PATENT CACTINE CACHINNATION COMPOUND. Male students, especially, realize the difficulty of giggling appropriately at certain sickly and decrepit jokes perpetrated in the class-room by various profes- sors. One dose of our Wonderful Cactine Cachinnaiion Compound taken just before a recitation period is guaranteed to enable any student to smil e lovingly upon the instructor, to giggle explosively at his punkest pims, and to go into convulsions over the veriest chestnut which His Wouldbewittyship may choose to drag forth from the forgotten limbo of things damned and done with. Prize box of this compound given to any student answering correctly the rid- dle in verse, page — . TESTIMONIALS FROM THE FACULTY. EXPLAINS GRAY ' S HILARITY. VILLAVASO CACKLES. The following endorsement from the garrulous and gabby retailer in ancient chestnuts and warmed-over snake stories, David H. Gray, speaks volumes as to the efficacy of our wonderful discovery. " Cactine Remedy Co. " Gentlemen : Having tried one box of your famous Cachinnation Compound, I hesitate not to aver my inability to do without it. Under its mfluence I can laugh appreciatively at my own jokes, thus enabling me to erally convidse my audience, be it an individual or class, for laughin ' , you know, is cftchm indeea, my success is so marvelous I sometimes suspect thatcertam members l y are under the spell of this most potent compound. I recommend your ag ion unreservedly. Yours truly, 331 SUPERB GEM. Cactine Remedy Co. Gentlemen : For years I have been troubled with the Graveyard Grins and acute Stiffneckedness. Five minutes after taking my first dose of your Cachinna- tion Compotmd I felt myself wriggle and a funny feeling run up one side and down the other. After waiting ten minutes with no further results, I took the limit, and lo ! I laughed outright. My neck became limber as a society hand-shake. I secretly retired to my apartments, locked myself in with this new found joy and laughed myself to sleep. Instead of my Graveyard Grins, I can now produce a bright happy smile most any time. I consider your mirth-producer invaluable and cor- dially recommend it. Sincerely, E. J. V. WHITEWASH!! WHITEWASH!!! WHITEWASH!!!!
