Meaningless these Pots of gold? =S v iv QI pxas THIS is no strippling, sirs, no yoi el youth, This bronze-limbed Hercules of giant girth ; This is the stoutest-thewed, the staunchest-souled In all the brawny brotherhood of States! TIME was, perchance, when, indolent, outstretched, Sprawled like a lazy urchin at his ease. He dozed and dreamed the drowsy hours away Beside the shallows of some singing stream. Or else, upblinking at a Southern sun. Watched while a snowy squadrony of cloud Waged mimic Trafalgars on skyey seas. His was the fragrance of the fallow field, The burst of bird-song and the ample air, Purple expanses of primeval pine. And undulant wide reaches of the plain. But, with the lapse of adolescent years, Through his slow pulses swept a sudden thrill, The quick, keen impulse of an ichor new That .-stirred his slumbrous soul to stinging life; And swift off-flinging from his lithesome limbs Inaction ' s shackles and the gyves of ease, Up to the stalwart stature of a man Leaped he, erect, and Godlike in his mien. And looking worldward with a questing eye Saw where his kindred commonwealths had swept Far past him on the stretching slopes until Dim showed their outlines on the upper steeps! THRILLED by the thunders of their Titan tread, Stung with a sense of sluggish slothfulness, Waked to the wanton wastefulness of years, He turned his back to ease and dull content And, upward faring, set his steadfast step Il v g straight toward the peaks of high emprise, nor b reathed A half-regret for deedless days forsworn ; Nor paused he in his pilgrimage until, High on a proud plateau of aims fulfilled. For a brief breathing-space he stood and swept World-ways with gaze far-reaching in its scope; Saw the dusk pine lands, that were wont to lie Flecked with the saffron sheen of summer suns And flinging lures of balsam to the breeze. Freighting the creaking cars and groaning ships With the upyielding of an eon ' s growth ; Looked on the prairies, girt with golden sheaves. Where full-flanked cattle stalked in sleek content; Saw the old haunts, which erst were overgrown With brier and bramble, and where roamed at will All countless crawling creatures of the wild. Ribboned with streets of stretching steel that led To city steeples signalling the skies; Heard the low croon of commerce and the hum Of whirring engines and the lisp of looms. Panting of pistons and the strenuous stir Of keels, outveering from the harborsides ! «Ka kLJ (§ ttiaxB at tl| Hi Amos Peters, President. Louise Johnson, Vice-President.

He would have said the same in 1908 of five victories and four defeats. The figures seem almost identical, but, if any student of Texas should be asked, he would declare the 190 8 eleven a failure — the 1909 team a success. Wherein lies the difference? The 1908 team lost the cham- pionship of the Southwest but won that of the State. This year ' s eleven lost both. Evi- dently the facts lie below the surface. The team that beat Southwestern 10-0 displayed much of the old lethargic spirit of the preceding year; the team that met defeat before A. M. at Thanksgiving went down, fighting every inch of the way, and coming out at the end — worn, exhausted, but stubborn still — defeated, but not conquer- ed, with the hero ' s meed of praise — they did all and more that men could do. It was in the spirit that the men of 1909 showed their superiority — that indefinable something that grips the half-back as he plunges through a reeling line or almost stifles the guard as he wins through a crushing mass of legs and arms to break the enemy ' s line. The change from the old to the new was apparent from the very first. Southwestern was beaten, but the victory left lit- tle confidence in the team. A week later, at Dallas, practically the same team was outlucked by the A yyu ' - ' rl THE ( ± A - s- jf ITS A WAY MRK, HAS if ' vaiSfeii Sc ' ' ■ " 1 Si???

" — the team, accomimnieU by the student body under the chaperonage of Dean Battle, arrived in Houston. In the morning, the entire rooting squad vied with the A. M. cadets in a monster parade. Take-offs on the farmer boys were everywhere in evidence. Then, with the evening ' s game, the crash cam -lt rained The rains descended and the floods caine and the Longhorns. never mud-cats. floundered helplesslv in the slush. Balenti ' s onside kicks and the returns of Kelly and 15-Trtft0t»« r- ' St.. f -., Hamilton partook of the night- marish. The rooters lost their morale and the band sat ab- solutely silent in the down- pour, while, from across the field, came the triumphant blare of the A. M. music- ians. Gloom descended like night upon the earth and the Ides of Xovember passed into history. That was Houston. Like a ray of light in the darkness, came the rally be- fore the Oklahoma game. Col- lege spirit, not dead but sleeping lo! these many months, sprang at a bound ' U 79 m t i IN ' - Y 1 into re-existence. The alumni felt it — the whole school felt it — spreading like wild- fire through the hearts of all. A. M. had beaten the Sooners 15-5 — she had punished Texas 23-0. What would happen when the Orange and Oklahoma clashed? Then came the answer. The team fought like heroes. Kirkpatrick, Stieler, Moore, and Massingill — the whole team — covered themselves with glory. Nothing could stop them. Darkness closed the scene of carnage with another 30-0 score. Although the season ended in defeat, it was a loss covered by a blaze of glory. ♦- In the best game ever played on Clarke field. A. M. for the third time in history downed Texas. It was a bat- tle such as the gods love. Seven thousand enthusiasts crowded grandstand and bleachers and overflowed the standing room between the railings. The transparencies back of the Texas bleachers bore such legends as: " A. M.— 23; Texas— 0. Once in seven years. " " Texas vs. Carlyle, Dickinson, Sewanee, Georgia Tech., L. S. U., and A. M.

Wi th no rooting squad to cheer, in the face of a very riot of A. M. enthusiasm. Captain Ayres ' men won a hard- fouplii victory. The weight and distance men largely carried the day for Texas, though tlie short-dash events lirouglit a wealth of second and third places. Southwestern, on . pril I ' inh. avenged their defeat of the year before by winning from Texas 7. ' i to 47. Here the fatal weakness in the dashes lost the meet. Henry of S. V.

Ayres. and the season ' s find. — Smith. — captured the mile and the half, and Brownlee — the high-jump. Bailey took place in all three weight events. This closed the track season as far as Var- sity was concerned, but no record of 1909 track would be complet e without a mention of the interscholastic held under the auspices of the Athletic Association in April. The lead- ing prep schools of the State were entered in the meet. Belton High School won the Scholastic Championship, and Allen Academy, by defeating them, the State honors. The individual work during the season brought out many new men. CuUen Bailey, the most effective weight man. led the team in points. Captain Ayres, and Smith, whose de- velopment is no small credit to Coach Howser tied for second honors. thk i-A.- t iiri;i)LE M 1510 M Thomas, Estill, and Brownlee were awarded " T ' s " for making ten points or more in the meets. Of the other team men, Hoover. Pol- lard, Melasky, and Cartwright did excellent work. Track in the Fall of 1909 Under the new coaching system of 1909, track has taken a fresh impetus. Coach Snyder arranged a fall meet in Houston between Texas. Tulane, and A. M. As Captain Bailey was on the football squad, Callan temporarily took his place. The momentous contest occurred on the day following the football team ' s de- cisive defeat at the hands of the Farmers. As Captain Ayres puts it, " Our team had been called upon to avenge baseball ' s shame in April. Now we went in to wipe out the disgrace of that 23 to score, and we did it. " From the first, there was no doubt of the results. Texas 4 i ♦Swv ' i Saiiii ' - K ' LJ 1 OVER won seven out of thirteen first places. Callan and Hoover took the dashes, Cheatham and Smith the long dis- tances. Thomas was in fine form on the hurdles, and Moore took first place in the hammer-throw, while the relay team came in ahead in beautiful style. The cups won in this meet form the nucleus of the Texas Trophy Room. 1510 v l c ? m! (Fitr (UlaM S rark iHrrtnf 13Ug Captain Managtr J. H. Brownlee B. H.

' •Vv ntnifi in igU3 V T lENNIS at Texas in 1909 had one of its most prosperous years. The earlier progressive tournament in the fall had a large entry list and was hotly contested. In the spring tournament for the college championship, although one or two players led from the very first, intense interest was maintained. The finals in doubles were won by Baker and Eyres from Bryan and Wright. In the singles, Baker defeat- ed Brj ' an, ex-doubles-champion in 1905 and 1906. Baker was then beaten by Hulen Robertson, the 1908 singles winner. At the State Tournament held in Waco, Texas won both events, Baker and Eyres taking the doubles, and Robertson the singles. THE .fl 5 WHERE THE F.ACn.TY WORK 103 askftball THE revival of basketball at Texas is due almost entirely to the efforts of one man — Morgan Vining. It was through his constant applica- tion that student interest was aroused, and a squad brought out to practice under Mr. Metzenthin. It is true that the season was by no means a success, but Captain Vining ' s work kept the game alive and gave it a grip, which from its present progress in 1910, promises to be long-enduring. The basketball team had an effective pair of forwards in Hardie and Vining, and six guards from whom to choose. Estill played the whole year at center. Vining was easily the star of the year. Texas won from Baylor and a few minor schools, but went down ingloriously before Allen Academy. Such is a brief record of the season ; but we must look beyond this seeming failure and give due credit to Captain Vining and his men for preserving a game that will mean much to Texas athletics in the future. » 1 w demv. VI. T H O U G H the Gym Team maintained the regular organization in 1909. the annual exhibition was not held, and no trip was taken. Several of the old stars were back, and all did excellent work. Bailey. Charlton, and Crawford had won " T ' s " in gym work, and there was a wealth of new material. Like the other teams, however, gym was handicapped financially. The elimination of the " T. " and the failure to take a trip, caused a great decline of in- terest; hence practically nothing was done. The 1910 Gym Team is coached by Dr. Lane. Mer- lin C. Crawford, who won his " T " in the 1908 contest, is manager, and Bev. Dudley is captain. THE .fl 5 " • " Nt ssg A € 1510 v £ r Unman Attjlrttr Asanriatinn Grace Long President AiLEEN Blacker . .

In addition to the regular farm work, the Reubs have given much time to a scientific study of many important questions pertaining to farm life. Each hand has been required by the Landlord to devote a portion of each day to a study of the Almanac, or to a perusal of the latest agricultural reports. Practical demonstrations of the best method of " curing fresh meat " has been given before the assembled barnyard. Extensive experiments have been made in the subjects of dairy farming, dry-farming, deforming and reforming, with some attention to performing by the new cusses. The most valuable investigations made by the barnyard, however, have been those leading to the discovery of a means of exterminating Johnson grass, boil weevils, hook-worms and trusts. The new hands are a husky bunch, and have done good work, despite the fact that they have labored under some difficulties as the following letter from one of them will show: " deer Bill sence i come to Tlie university I aint had time to do much ritin. i found a lot uv Rubes hear when I come, nearly all of em livin in Beehall which is a big bordin House so i Joined the barnyard, wliith was organ eyseed a 102 year a go, so one of the fellers told me the nite 1 joined.

Its purpose is, through self-government, to foster and maintain the highest standards and ideals of conduct and scholarship ; to promote better acquaintance among its members ; to bring about a greater unity and a closer fellowship among the women of the University ; and to organize the upperclasswomen in such a way that systematic work may be done each year in aiding the women of the incoming class. All women registered as students in the University are active members of the Association. Marguerite Calfee Winifred Bosche Mamie Searcy Georgia Maverick Georgia 0.

The University Legislature is modeled after the State ' s legislative boilj-. The Senate Is composed of one member from each senatorial district, and tlie House is composed of fifty-six members, each representing a representative district. Tlie chief executive is the Governor, chosen at a joint meeting of the Legislature. The highest officer of tlie Senate is the Lieutenant- Governor, and that of the House is the Siieaker. The work of drawing up the constitution and by-laws was largely the work of O. K. Brame. This constitution sets forth the following as the chief objects of the Legislature: Efficiency in the application of parliamentary rides. Development of public speaking and .debate. Acquaintance with public questions. The sessions this year have, as a rule, been well attended. Many lively and interesting parliamentary clashes have taken place on the floors of the House, and, as a result of tliis earnestness on the part of its members, the Legislature has come to be recognized as one of the leading literarj ' societies in the l ' ni ' ersit ' . The University Legislature, then, in keeping with the ideals which inspired its organiza- tion, has a great mission to perform in the training tif young nn ' n for one of the noblest fields of human endeavor — that of statesmanship. 204 4 % rL Germania Literary Society OFFICERS FIRST TERM.

' W. when the things you got in the Knowledge Factory are forgotten — the great white glare, the noise, the horns, the red lemonade, the peanut stand, the saw dust and the side show. Who would trade an hour in Rather ' s Monolith- ic Mastodonic Three Ring Circus for a seance with Pete Barnum ' s ghost? One big sell from start to finish — you knew it when you went in and you never expected to see that wad again. Well, why should you? The track and the diamond needed patching in the frayed spots and, if the Regents wouldn ' t pay for it, we would! So let the world slide. It was the old cry again — the eternal yowl that has been raised ever since Benny cut his milk-teeth — coin for athletics — loosen up! Maurice Wolff — the never-to-be-forgotten author of the Megasphone Speech — originated the Varsity Circus back in the prehistoric aeons of 1906 in a laudable and successful effort to save himself.

Ben Milam. and other deceived and betrayed backers of the bankrupt Athletic Association, the sad necessity of separating ten cold bucks from empty pockets — a miracle, but one Benny has often accomplished. Years passed and once again the decrepit old lady. Athletic Finances, was taken down with rheumatism of the credit, and called in a consultation of doctors. Then it was that our old friend. Mr. Roy Rather, stepped in, and. having expend- ' 1 ' ed on a European trip, the pro- ceeds of his nefarious foot- ' ball management, felt his Iff conscience prick him and of- j j i fered to try Wolff ' s old rem- -i " " edy again and get out a Var- sity Circus.

The Circus was a decided success — over a thousand dollars being paid to the Athletic Association. (X. B.— Benny went on a trip last summer.) The students were broke for a month after the performance and Jake ' s receipts fell off thirty per cent, causing a change of management in that sanctum. The Second Varsity Circus fully vindicated itself and everyone concerned. As to the per- formance itself, here are a few spasms thrown by our reporter on the spot. , The Queen ' s election was the most exciting thing on the program. Roy, an old queener of the first water, had long realized that the way to a woman ' s heart lies through the emptying pocketbook. Wherefore, he originated a neat idea in the way of paying one large, fat copper per vote. The ballot box was stationed at the i1? yA-. Co-Op which caused divers rumors that Roy and Bob Richey stood in together with the intent to defraud and elect Tom Williams. Many a desperate lover sneaked up to the box and wasted his last dime on ten votes for the Fair One. The race was hotly contested to the l ' yt lagj moment with even money on the field. At the last moment, Miss N ' ita Hill triumphantly swept the polls and was declared Queen of CHIEF PEESE Varsity ' s Fair. At the last report, the man- 243 ' -M- e, ' ' ffjmm y A the ' ' 1510 1 agers declined to have the Queen ' s Contest Account aud- ited. May 17th was the day fix- ed for the great event. At an early hour, the crowds lined the thoroughfares, (This Is the usual form for circus write-ups.) The parade, of course, was late — no prece- dents violated here. But when it came, it was a dinger. The magnificent cortege was pre- ceded by Manager Rather and Boothe in an unaccus- tomed seat in a road-wagon. Roy looked like Diamond Dick Morgefeller, the circus; prince. Was he there? Rath- er! The other able assist- ants, wearing smiles of per- spiration, followed in an auto. These were the near- sports. Thereafter came the Real-Sports, whose chief claim to existence was that they owned an auto and white duck clothes. Colonel Beulah Davis, the hero of San Juan, led his band of THE LAUNDRY .S]-|-| ' .

Borne high aloft in her chariot of state, the Queen followed, surrounded by her Maids-of-Honor — M i s s e a Shelmire, Burleson. Tompkins, Schlemmer, and Wells — fit com- panions for the Regnant Queen of Beauty. As outriders, certain of the callow variety rode In haughty pride by the flower- strewn throne.

And last, even as of old. we followed the shrieking calliope, the small boys hung upon the entrancing strains that Musician Darter drew in sweet cadence from cumbrous pipes. Ladies and gentlemen, the show is now open! Pay your money and step this way! Don ' t fall to see the fat lady and the Cardiff Giant! This, my friends, is the justly renewed Rusticuss side-show!

I tlton SoHB (Bvttr WKI ' I ' IOK OF TIM ' I ' : I,YI!IC.S THIS is an unpretentious appreciation of the verse of Hilton Ross (Ireer, sometime a student in the University of Texas. The word appreciation is used in preference to criticism, not be- cause etymologically there is an essential difference, but because for most minds the latter word implies the picking of flaws. If there be defects, let another point them out. Genuinely modest as he is, the subject of this sketch would be the first to disclaim perfection. When we write of poets, we are wont to air our pedantic little theories of verse in general, and to foist upon our readers learning we regard profound. We vaunt our scholarship ofttimes in assiduously hunting errors. Shakespeare has had perhaps few critics harsher than those teachers whose English is not always impeccable. Some discerning soul has remarked that nothing is faultless that is human. Greer is human. Assuming, therefore, that he is possessed of our common frailties, this little sketch is but to tell why the writer likes the verse of this genial-souled singer, whom he is glad to regard as his friend. Greer writes genuine lyrics. Making no attempt at profundity of matter or manner, he sings spontaneously in verse devoid of any striving after effect. To others he leaves the treatment of epic themes ; for him the gnomic and studiedly obscure have no charm. He em- ploys diction that all may understand in telling of joys and sorrows, hopes and fears, that all have felt and known. He holds that in this workaday world there is need for even " the sparrow ' s chirp in bosk and brake. " His verses are made of heart-stuff, an attribute not al- ways found in the laurel-crowned, and one that covers a multitude of possible sins. It may be charged that Greer is lacking in restraint. Indeed, he sings naturally, with no thought of effect, accepting the prompt- ings of his heart rather than of any literary dogma. If lack of repres- sion be his, he errs in common with the full-throated nighting ale. If it be charged that his writing is too colorful, it needs to be borne in mind that the blue canopy and multicolored woodlands of the South have always imparted fervor to our orators and authors, not the least 249 1510 ' ' ' -f ■- 1 j • ' ' t i : V, » " ' ' W THE I , , A of earth. And, Southern in birth and rearing, it is natural that Greer should be so in temperament and style. It is not farfetched to say that his aversion for the enigmatic and cabalistic reminds one of Burns. He seems to fancy that the really great things of life, those in whose presence we stand with head un- covered and quickened pulse, are not complex, and that he has his place who sings simply of them. Because of his clearness, howeve r, the depth of his thought may sometimes go unnoticed. The mountain tarn is deeper than it seems. He lacks neither in comprehensive- ness nor perspective. Greer ' s verse is eminently musical. It sings itself. He has no need to measure off by rule the verse he writes. He would detect a superfluous foot or a misplaced stress as readily as the skilled musi- cian catches a discord. He knows the value of onomatopoeia, allitera- tion, and euphony. Not sacrificing form for substance, out of con- sonant and vowel sounds he fashions symphonies. One is not sur- prised to learn that Lanier, the flute-playing poet and exponent of the analogy of music and verse, is taken as his preceptor and friend. With their sonorous open-vowel sounds and rhythmic cadences, many of his most characteristic verses are essentially songs. Indeed, some of his dainty, graceful lyrics have been successfully set to music. Greer knows the technique of versification. Skilled in the vari- ous stanzaic forms, he excels in sonnet, rondeau, rondel, villanelle, and quartrain. Moreover, he is exceedingly clever in devising new metrical effects, his medium being ever germane to the thought. What- ever the chosen form, his verses all have a lilt and a swing that charm. Like a goodly number of his fellow-singers of the South, Greer loves to find a theme in the merry madness of the mockingbird. For him, as for the unhappy Hayne, the aspects of the pines have abiding fascination. He writes of roses and magnolias, of nodding goldenrod and twining vines. He loves best of all the months, April, the season of Nature ' s birth, and October, the time of glorious death, of these writing in terms of Southern meadows and woodlands. Nor is he less fortunate in depicting the distinctively Southwestern. We catch the note of the cowboy ' s artless song, we feel the thrill of a dashing ride over the rolling prairie, and we know the spirit of religious meditation which the plains inspire. In verse of more than ordinary charm we learn of the ardent loves of dark-eyed senoritas beyond the border. 250 i A ; yU U ' J c - i f- %tL It has been said of Shelley that had he possessed a sense of hu- mor his name might have taken rank as the third greatest of English poets. If Greer shall fail of a complete fulfillment of his present promise, it will not be for a lack of the saving gi-ace. His written drolleries are no less clever than the ready wit, devoid of sting, that makes his companionship a constant delight. He is exceedingly fond of Tom Hood ' s inimitable persiflage. Should he choose to adopt exclu- sively the humorous point of view, he could, in all probability, achieve success among those who with the slight blade of laughter have fought valiantly against sham, snobbery, and fraud. In any event, his keen sense of humor will keep him sane in a sphere not unacquainted with moonmadness. Greer ' s published works, in volume form and in numerous period- icals and newspapers, give evidence not only of initial ability, but also of constant growth. Contending against depre.ssing physical dis- abilities, and burdened with the routine of newspaper and business office, he has yet found time and strength to produce a large number of poems whose excellence the better class of magazines have not fail- ed to recognize, and whose messages of sweetness and light have brought cordial responses from appreciative readers throughout the country. At home either in the editorial sanctum or in the realm of the short story writer, in any sphere other than poetry he seems to be a thoroughbred racer harnessed to a plow. So, here ' s to you, Greer, acknowledging an indebtedness for in- spiration and good cheer, and wishing you that high achievement in helpful poesy for which you so earnestly long, and of which your for- mer attainments are admirable earnest ! The world needs your hope- ful song. There are not enough of those who have the gift to send us about the work of a humdrum existence with a smile upon our lips and a prayer within our hearts. And he who so labors is not the least of the servants of men. It would be a graceful act for the University of Texas to note the songs of those who have studied within its walls. When it does, among those who with their lilting lays have lightened our burdens, your name shall take high place. J. E. R.

" Bob- by Crewe had named it during the first waltz when he caught sight of its leafy recesses, of the faint green lights hidden in the ferns, and of the ruby punch bowl that was sunk deep in the mossy rocks, aglow and spark- ling with the lights imbedded below. They stopped again at the punch bowl and admired its ruby brilliancy. His face showed quiet and serious in the strange crimson light, and she had assumed the look, for she wished to please him. They were hardly seated, but he turned to her earnestly. " I want to know what has happened in the club. Marguerite — about Annie. " His boyish face was flushed, his deep eyes watched hers intently. She fidget- ed and looked displeased, " 1 know something is wrong. Marguerite. Annie would never have resigned for nothing. She won ' t say a word, and she ' s all broken up. She was awfully quiet coming tonight. She acts cold and hurt and distrustful — as if there was something desperate. One would think that she had resigned from all the clubs in the Varsity.

" " Listen, .lohn, " she leaned closer, " when we took Annie in at the first of the year none of us knew her. She was pretty, popular, and had loads of clothes, so we snapped her up on appearances. She lived at Dalton — had just moved there. No one knew her but Bobby Crewe and 1 guess he didn ' t know much. No one suspected anything till during the holidays.

She was brazen, John — " There was a startled movement behind the shrubbery. Marguerite drew back. The leaves were thrust aside. The other girl stood flushed and crimson before them. Her eyes were burning. The boy held out his hand. " Annie. " " I was sitting there. 1 am sorry. " She was palo and on the verge of sob- bing. " I — I overheard you. " " That is evident.

She could see Stella half way down the aisle of the Pullman — the center of a group of girls and boys, for Stella was very popular. So the girl tiptoed and tried as frantically as was in keeping with a nonchalant, dis- interested air to catch her eye. This was a place to make their ac- quaintance count. She thought it was rude of Stella to have left her, and she lamented now that she had been so cautious about securing the seat nearest the window. The crowd was thinning; a big fellow was making way for two girls, so she followed. Then Stella saw her; she reached over the crowd, caught her hand, and continued the intro- duction of a tall, blackeyed fellow. " And, Tom, I want you to meet Lillian — Miss Robberts. And you too, Will. Lillian, Mr. Wright. She was my protege for the trip. " The girl was composed now. She met the rest of the group, made a remark that was innocently cute, and evinced a pseudo freshman interest and ignorance to make Stella say, " Oh, Freshman, Fresh- man ! " Then she would laugh with pretty confusion that lasted a moment too long. They were getting off the Pullman now, and the young fellow who had been first inti ' oduced asked to take her suitcase. He had been watching her with an amused twinkle in his eye. She thanked him bewitchingly, for she had noticed his intimacy with the girls that were Stella ' s friends. They met some other boys on the platform. The giii was cute. Her clothes were perfect, and the fellows gathered around her eagerly, improving their acquaintance. With the attention, she felt a bit independent now. assuming an inoffensive air of slight disdain to show them all that she was accustomed to just that sort of thing. Lillian had time to take her bearings as they were waiting for the car. Several of the girls wore pins like Stella ' s, and when she met those girls ' eyes she smiled — and they smiled. The young man at her side had been talking to Stella, but now he turned to her jestingly. " There ' s much better car service at your home, of course, Miss Robberts. " She took him seriously. " Oh, I hardlv know. Fve a nice electric and I seldom ride on a car. " " You ' re fortunate. " and he helped several girls aboard, manouver- ing she noted complacently that he might sit next to her. They chatted commonplaces for a while then he asked, " Didn ' t Stella say your name was Lillian Robberts? " she quizzed, ted covering a .smile and then suddenlv: A 1510 L 1510 ' sr ' " I wanted to ask you to go to the play tonight and I thought I ought to know your name. " He saw her hesitate. " Oh, it ' s all right; you can ' t have known every one a life time down here. " " It wasn ' t that. I was supposed to have an engagement. " " What, so early. " " But it doesn ' t matter. I ' d rather go with you. " He looked dubious. " Oh, it ' s just a friend of mothers; it doesn ' t really matter. Why, I do not even know him. Mamma met him last summer a waiter in one of the hotels at which she was stopping. She thought he was so nice and gentlemanly and had such high principles and so forth — mother is foolishly old-fashioned sometimes. He goes to the Univer- sity and she asked him to call on me tonight. Naturally he did not object — and so here I am. And you ' ll relieve me from the unknown. " " Whew ! I did not know that I was intruding on such a romance. Do you know the fellow ' s name? " " It ' s Mr. Barnet. Now after all I ' ve said, don ' t you go and tell me that he ' s a dear friend of yours. " " No, but I do know him. Your friend is old Tom Baimet, I guess. " He seemed to enjoy it immensely. She misunderstood and his laugh nettled her. " Oh, he ' s not my friend, " she said disdainfully. " I ' m more par- ticular about my acquaintances. " Stella had signalled him to ring the bell. The girl looked with interest towards the university. It was evening and a few couples were strolling on the walks. Her heart beat a little faster, stirred by visions of her success and popularity and — He was offering to take her home. Stella said good-bye and promised to see her at the play. As they approached the house which he had pointed out, he asked : " What ' ll we do about Barnett tonight? " " Don ' t bother about him. I don ' t care to encourage waiters any- way. You come very early and we ' ll leave him to hold the sack. " And she laughed at the aptness of her expression. Lillian was waiting in her room the next morning for Stella, who was going to take her to meet her sorority sisters. She felt a little tired, for the play had been late, and a bit worried, for the evening had not been altogether satisfactory. Stella ' s friend had harped dis- agreeably on the fellow whom they had left. She could not under- stand why he should care ; she had not learned to be squeamish about other persons ' feelings. She lolled on the couch dallying with a magazine and frowning. There was absolutely nothing to do. It might look over anxious and spoil it all if she were dressed and waiting when Stella came — and she wished an excuse to be seen in the Japanese dressing robe which was really worth exhibiting. Stella finally came. She noticed the 2fiG TH] robe in due course which was after Lillian ' s enthusiastic kiss. Then Lillian was so sorry to have kept her waiting, and in haste she care- lessly snatched the first dress that came to hand from precisely where it was in readiness — And it is pleasant to note that Stella thought it a beautiful one. They met another of the girls who wore that pin on the porch and the three walked on together. " Are you going to the German tonight? " the other girl asked in making conversation. " I don ' t know, " she said deliciously unconcerned, " I suppose I ought to rest. " " No rest yet, " Stella laughed, " I promised your mother that you should see it all. Why you ' ll meet all the university people there. I must make you a date. I ' d lend you Tom again, but he has insisted on taking me. " " And who is Tom? — Was that his name? " " Why everyone knows who Stella means when she says Tom, " the other girl piped in. Stella was blushing now. " But, Jenny, he deserted me for Lillian last night. " " Tom, who? " asked Lillian, " I never did know his name. " Jenny broke in chaffinsrly. " Who? Who? Why Tom Barnet— There ' s no other Tom in the world. " Stella ' s cheeks were rosy but she turned in surprise to Lil- lian. " Why — Why what ' s the matter? Didn ' t you like him. " " You ' d better say yes, " Admonished Jenny. " Of course I did. He was just grand. " And they .stopped to meet a crowd of the sorority girls on the porch. Lillian forgot her confusion — they wore those pins. At the German that night Tom and Stella whirled by the girl radiantly adorned in red. " Is she pledged yet? " he asked. " Yes, but not to us. " Some of the girls thought she was too aristocratic and too fond of showing it. But Tom what on earth did you do to her at the play last night. Jenny mentioned your name this morning and she turned a thousand colors. " " Not a thing — I ' ll tell you sometime. " They were waiting for the encore, and the girl in red tripped up to Stella. She saw Tom ; she stopped and smiled blankly. " What is the matter with you two? " asked Stella, and then sud denly, " You — You knew each other before. " " The girl hesitated. " Not exactly, " Tom broke in, " but I ' m a friend of your mother ' s — am I not, Miss Roberts? " And the girl grew red and laughed — but the laugh was strained.

The college stein that you used to drink To the Past, the Present, To-morrow ' s dawn, That you banged on the table nor stopped to think — The stein and the table both are gone. The lager never foams as white, the beer is always bad. And the taste is not what it used to be, when you were an undergrad. The little briar you used to sm oke. When the haze-wreaths rose to the darkened wall, The meerschaum pipe and the clay you broke — Gone are the meerschaum, briar, and all. The tobacco is not the same old brand, and smoking makes you sad — Since the pipe is not the same old pipe that you had as an undergrad. Gone are the stein, meerschaum, and briar That lit old days with their mystic fire. The flame that burned in the meerschaum bowl. And the merry devil who grinned his soul From its amber mouth and carven side. And the ugly briar with its mouth-piece wide. And the gurgling stein — as Time speeds fast, He has melded them all in a dream of the Past. But still there are times when the years of yore Call forth their own from Memory ' s store. And through the clatter and noise of Time, You hear the clash of the rollicking stein; And the fragrant smoke and the ring-wreathed haze And old thoughts, merry, mad. Bring back in pipe and stein the days When you were an undergrad. — William B. Rugflles. 2fi8 1- ' - " ' -JH J.V .JIg Pfl iP THE 1510 en L jiLh . CANTO I. The Challenge c-3 O, many years had rolled away, If Gone were the heroes of the play— J|_n The scenery shitted— supers gone — Of all that knew, remained not one An aged minstrel, last of all. Who sang of feudal field and hall, Had chanced to stray one winter night Where pleasures soft and faces bright Sought in tale and storied play To wliile the stupid hour away. " Ah. minstrel, sing a martial song! " The old man smiled, his harp unstrung — " And hast thou heard of t ' liarmion — How Jlurray fame and glory won? " " Nav. gleeman. nay! " their laughter rang. And " loud the Texas minstrel sang. Fair shone the sun on castle wall Old Kappa Sigma ' s blazoned hall. There glanced the light from helm and spear And o ' er the waters Hung its cheer. Bright was the scene, and all seemed gay, — The sportive jest, (he merry play. But brighter still the scene became When the master o ' er the drawbridge came A fierv barb Lord Murray rode. And well " B. Hall " bore up Its load. A sturdy warrior seemed the Lord. Who well could wield the axe and sword. A prince of Kapp.i Sigma he. An Arrowliiiul. unci T. N. E.

And loudly called on Murray ' s name. Lord Murray turned, his hand on .«wora. • ' Sijeak, courier, speak; we wait thy word! III. " From Tichahod I come; " he cried. " The .iudse wlio rules the borderside. Uchelli ' on lifts its liUmdy hand And spreads thro igh all the border land. Charmion and his Alpha Talis Ride from the distant foreign wars: Throughout the country, strife they spread- Already discontent is lired. p ' rom court and castle, stubborn foe Has rallied to the A.

The Warlock of the Beta clan Has cast liis fortunes with their band; And Kappa ' s fair, silk banners sew To cheer the progress of the foe. Our men give way. our fortunes fall; Lord Murray, on thy aid we call! " Oh. dark the frown Lord Murray wore, And black his scowl as Pluto ' s shore; Grimly he swore with furious look. And liis clenched fist in air he shook. " And has it come to this. " he cried, " That armed foes my border ride. That upstart Charmion may dare To loose his laand in open war? Too soon he ' ll learn his grave mistake, When Murray s friends to Ijattle wake. Come. Kappa Sig. my forces call. And gather to the battle call! Rise. Delta Sig and old Phi Psi; Come. Delta Tau. K.

Who fought with tongue, and not with sword His silver voice had oft saved war. And him the men called the Senator. " No, Murray, no! " he cpiickly said. " In sudden war ' s our ruin made. Diplomacy may win the day; And send these brawling foes away. " " And are we cowards ' .

" To Tichabod my greetings give: ' i ' eli him that Murray ' s soul still lives; Hid him haste, and gather there The legions of the Engineer; Send round the fiery cross once niore, And rouse the battle call of yore ; Hid Pi Phi pray for victory. And rouse the Zeta nunnery: I„et Theta ' s maids our warriors cheer. Gol tell him Murray will be there! " vir. ITe ceased. — To horse the courier sprung, And o ' er the drawbridge dashed along. Rehind him In the castle yard The Murray ' s henchmen, warders, guard, With one glad shout had spread afar: " The good Lord Murray rides to war! " The minstrel ceased, his harp laid by; T ' nbid. a tear welled from his eye. " Ahl ladies fair, mine eyes are dim, Rty limbs are old. my locks are thin; Yet still my nostrils breathe the air Of martial glory. " Sighed the fair. And bade the harper tell them more Of Murray ' s fortune at the war. CANTO M. The Prophecy. Again the minstrel sang the tale. How Murray rode in fiery mail. " But. first, fair la dips, T must tell How Cliarmion saw the wizard ' s spell; How in the deep and m stic book The Heta Warlock took a look. " Shifts now the play to other scenes. Where trumpets sound and armor gleams— To where the dying sunset ' s glow Illumes the hold of A. T. O. High in the banquet chamber there The sound of revelry we hear. Where Charmion and his vassals bold In the great hall high wassail hold. M. At the table-head Prince Charmion stood. Of regal bearing, iiroud of mood. He, too. knew bonds of T. N. E., But Rattler owned his fealty. Around the festive board there ranged Knight and squire whose faith, estranged From Murray ' s side, rebellion won. And bound them fast to Charmion. There Scapegoat stood, of Phi Gam ' s host, Their only hope and dearest boasi. There sat the lord of Sigma Clii, The lawyer keen of Delta Chi. Such hosts were they as Monmouth led. When Sedgemoor formed his gory bed. The rough-neck Law of Delta Chi. The polished social butterfly. The pride of Rattier flaunted there, Tbo Academ and Engineer. III. So. wine and walnut sped along Till midnight heard the giddy song. 1 hen Charmion rose, and bowed his head. " I thank you. one and all, " he said; " But little trust T put in might — A lad.v ' s prayers win Charmion ' s fight. And what care I for force or skill " ? Peg-top and pump are with me still. " " m ,(( - I THI THE € 1510 I i f: IV. Now sounilpd loud the midnight bell. And Charniion sought the wizard ' s spell. Where the Heta Warlock ' s mystic sway Kelgned free until the hreak of day. At midniglit. Charmion left his halls; Kre dawn lie saw ajirain the walls, rroudly strode the leader forth. I ' roud was his consciousness of worth. With shoulders bowed, as if In shame. A sadder man he backward came. And naught of wizard ' s portent lokl That he had learned from Warlock old — Save but to one; ami then with chill He shook as if in mortal ill. " The moon behind a cloud had fled, As onward to the cave I sped. The night wind Ijlew along the way. And forms, ne ' er made of mortal clay. Were Itorne upon the whistling wind. And ghostly shapes trailed fast behind. Methought I heard the Banshee ' s cry — Na ' . thrice I heard her wailing hj-. I shook with fear; cold as of the grave I sought the entrance of the cave. A surly greeting the Warlock gave. In welcome to his mystic cave. " Few were his words; a potion long I drank, and knew my courage strong. And then before my wondering eyes He bade the visioned Future rise. And as he vanished into air Methought I heard him cry, " Beware THE ' € 1510 i g Black as the shi-oud of dead man ' s pall, 1 watched the tapestry rise and fall. His pot the while the Warlock stirred, And greeted it with magic word; And from the kettle ' s brazen bowl The smothering fumes of incense rolled. Peaces of those long dead and gone Looked from the mists that round were drawn. Three shades I saw whose faces white Showed friends of old upon my sight — Tliere Rather ' s ghost swept wailing past, And Ballard Coldwell fled in haste. And last came one known best of old. Comrade in arms, the Goodman bold; And as he vanished into air. Met bought 1 heard him cry, ' Beware! ' VIT. " Scarce had I time to quake in fear When, from below, a voice cried ' Here! ' And from the bowels of the earth A form of horrid size had birth. The blood had left my paling check. When cried the voice, ' Now, mortal, speak I ' Then stood I to the awful task. And trembling lips my question asked. The mists began to disappear, And sounds of battle smote my ear. I saw stretched wide a bloody plain. The waning hosts, the mangled slain: And yet. so mixed the struggling hosts, I knew not who had won or lost. It faded. A voice spoke in my ear; ' When lost your shield, your end is near.

Of Delta Slg ' s embattled hosts. ■VVho swore by vanished rhllpot ' s ghost. There Feiiille ranged his Delta Taus, And Thhabod. the man of laws. His roughmoss-troopers of the Hall, Gathered in arms at Jfurray ' s oall. There Chi I ' hi ' s pennon owned his sway. And the ranks of rid Delt and K. A. Their lances flashing in the sun. Far stretched the hosts of Charmion. Tn armor clad, half god. half man, Charmion himself hore un the van: And on his shield that all might see. Shimmered and shone the golden key. What need to tell what captains came To fight for Charmion ' s name and fame? There Towne the grim strode sternly by. And the wily fox of Delta Chi— Wrathful, who led his warrior host To back a cause already lost. Sir Goat his Phi Gam ' s brought to view. [jord Henry swayed the Sigma Nu; And there, stretched wide as eye could see The stubborn ranks of .S. A. E. ; Bv Willis led. whose wily hand Had marred the fortunes of his band; Sold them to gratify his pride. And left them betrayed by either side. Tliere. proudly spurred in front of all. Don Buddy Quixote of B. Hall. All politicians scorned he still. And couched his .spear against the mill. Behind. Tom Sancho Panza strode, And in place of ass the Coyote rode; His war-cry smote the listening ear, " I naught but bill-collectors fear! " Upon a hill that crowned the fray. A sombre kniglit viewed each array: No place he sought in either line — Men called him knight of Holv Shrine. Allegiance owed he to Phi Gam. But now lie grimly saw his clan March to their place in Charmion ' s host. Nor sought to take with them his post. In black he stood from head to heel. Nor wore on either arm a shield. Men say he sternly eyed the host. Wherever a gleaming sunbeam tossed From Charmion ' s shield, where he could see The glittering outlines of the kej To envy seemed his heart to yield. As if he fain would own the shield. And now the brightly glowing day Herald ' s the opening of the fray. His trusty steel Lord Murray takes, His clarion voice the echoes wakes. " Hoi minstrels, sound my battle-cry ig? z ' t " Murray and victory— live or die! " His host an answering roar gives out. And " Murray! Murray! " is the shout. Yet scarce is heard the echoed cry When " Charmion! " the foes reply. Then dashed the foremost on the foe, And down the horse and rider go. Steel rings on steel, and pennons fly, Mars frolics in the carnage high. On Wrathful ' s lifetime sets the sun; Here Feuille dies on Goat ' s bum pun. Carnage and ruin hold the field, And neither side begins to yield. Pricking across the fiery plain, Lord Murray heads for Charmion ' s band; His eye is fixed on the golden key, Since Charmion he there can see. " Now guard my shield! " Prince Charmion cries, Couching his spear against surprise. Thunders Lord Murray ' s charger fleet, In furious shock the rivals meet. Splinters the spear on Charmion ' s shield. And Murray has not won the field; Its Impetus his horse bears on. Ere he can return to Charmion. His rival smiles, but in his ear A whisper comes: " The end Is near. All is not o ' er, guard well thy shield, Or conquered and slain you leave the field. " Meanwhile, upon the warning right, Well Tichabod bears up the fight; His preeslne fono makos Willis yield, Whose regimonts iidw lly tlif tleld. Sir Goat upon the othir wins To bettor i:iuse Ills It-cliins bilnRS. So, back ami fortli tlif armies reel, Nor either side ean win the field. Now Murray seems to ride the fray. Now Charmlon must win the day. And still the tides vt battle roll Round mangled form and parting soul. Charging full tilt on Charmlon " s line. Came now the Knight of Holy Shrine. Long In silence he had viewed The shifting tides of battle ' s flood. Long he watched with covetous eye The shield that Charmlon bore on high. At length his feelings could no more Restrain themselves; In battle ' s roar He sought to win the wizard ' s shield. And headlong dashed upon the field. Nor pau.sed the sable Knight his pace — Short time Prince Charmlon had to brace Himself to meet the coming shock, Ere the two steeds together struck. Upon the shield the level lance Of Holy Shrine but seemed to glance. And. splintering on the charger ' s gear. Broke clean in two his rival ' s spear. Their lances shattered, each his blade Seiaed, and at the other made. Furious and fast the sword-strokes fell. But the Warlock ' s shield served Charmlon well; And but the Black Knight ' s guard was good. Himself had met a death of blood. On corslet and helm the fierce blows rained. And streaming gore each hauberk stained. At length, by pain and fury tossed. The Knight of the Shrine his glave unloosed. And with bare hand ' gainst Charmion ' s steel. From the Prince ' s arm he tore the shield; In his charger ' s flank he dug his spur. And dashed into the ranks of war; But, passing, he dealt a backward blow. And Charmlon bent to the saddle-bow. No praver to his ashen lips there came: Men say he called on the Warlock ' s name. He only heard a mocking laugh. And knew the end was near at last. Meanwhile, the charmed shield safely ta ' en. The Knight of the Shrine to the right wing came. The charm he held so all might see The glittering outline of the key. Madly he galloped through the fray. And all Prince Charmion ' s array His conquest saw him wield; A mightv roar rose from the host: " Prince Charmion ' s magic charm is lost— The Shrine has ta ' en the shield! " XI. Judge Tlchabod upon the left Found Willis ' men of strength bereft. The bravest flung themselves in vain On hostile sword and spear were slain. And Fortune upon the distant right With fickle smile cheered Murray ' s fight. Yet still the conflict fiercer grew Where hostile pennons proudly fiew And rival heroes fell. — " Goat and Quixote! " was the cry. And " Sancho Panza! " smote the sky, — For Charmlon still they yelled. 277 I ■ " J l " !- ' IWJP ftf " M M i XII. But while the maddened conflict raged. And Murray still his battle waged, A wounded knight was borne From the hot breath of fiery fray. Where the last beams of dying day Might view his mangled form. His hands still grasp his shivered lance. His eyeballs still in fury glance. Though dragged from ' neath the horses ' feet. Though his armor ' s torn, his helmet beat, He still would raise his fainting hand To cheer the fortunes of his band. His baldric ' s rent, his plumes are torn — Can this be haughty Charmion? XII. Far from the stubborn battle tide. His fainting form they laid beside A drinking-fountain near: " DRINK, MAN AND BEAST; AND. GENTLE HEART, PRAY FOR THE SOUL OF IGLEHART, WHO RAISED THIS FOUNTAIN HERE. " xin. His helm unlaced, Prince Charmion knew Refreshing winds around him blew. Half dazed, he wildly stared around. And looked o ' er the fateful battle giound. Where in the fading evening ' s light He sees his host prepared for flight. " Where ' s Phi Gam ' s Goaf. ' and Wrathful, where? Is none, then. left my soul to cheer? Redeem my fortunes, charge again. Cry ' Charmion and victory! ' — vain! Last of my blood on battle plain. My war-cry ne ' er shall sound again. Yet my last thought is with my cause- To Sir Goat bear my signet ring. Bid him fresh reserves to bring; Bid Willis never pause. Quixote ' s dead upon the field — Reft is the Warlock ' s sacred shield — Ogden is down — my life is done — On Goat our hopes must rest alone! Let Phi Gam charge again, again. Bid Groesbeck smite the foe again Full upon Murray ' s central host— Or victory and all is lost! " Prince Charmion ' s cause was lost. The war that for a space did fall Now trebly swelled upon the gale And " Murray! " was the cry. A light on Charmion ' s visage spread. His form in fury tosst: With sliaking hand above his head He shook tlie fragment of his blade, " No. all is not yet lost! Charge. Phi Gam! charge! on. Beta Were the last words of Charmion. The old man ceased. His idle arm Fell limply at his side. " Such is my tale of Charmion, Of glorious deed, and victory won — Of battle ' s shifting tide. " The minstrel then his harp unstrung. No more that night old tales he sung: Nor urged the fair to tell them more: He only heard their measured snore. — W. The Professorial Creed ¥]ll-:il!

The poet has made oath that on similar occa- sions, when accompanying a lady chosen iry others, he has experienced pecuHar and con- flicting emotions, but that never did he have the honor to accompany one whose antiquity filled him with such reverence as on this occasion. He has vainly struggled to express his admiration.) I. invokes O mine Egyptian Star! O thou whose eyes divine The poet scoffs at young maids who live a hundredyears or so. He praises longevity. Physical blemishes, sayeth the poet, are of slight account ; beauty and youth are vain; only age is to be adored. The poet o ff e r s proof that his love is the oldest living human. First blessed the world when Cheops yet was young, On me but let thy starlight of the ancients shine To inspire my soul with burning rhapsodies of song! O lend me now thy wealth of garnered thought. Thy treasured store of antique knowledge sage, Begun ere Ptolemy his kingdom wrought. Or nations felt the power of Caesar ' s rage. That I may seek whatever poets wrote. Or idle dreamer in his dreaming viewed. Or tuneful minstrel set to swelling note. Or visions in tlie minds of lovers brewed: That I may gather all that men have spake. Or writ, or dreamed, or sung, of boundless love. And in my song to Thee all echoes wake Of sweetest cadences of earth and heaven above. Away! ye dancing butterflies, ye giddy things, Who in the evening of the transient day Around this candle. Youth, in whirling rings Flitter in senseless mirth your hours awayl Short are your triumphs, and your honors brief; Within the trifling span of fourscore years Your laughter turns to cackled cries of gi ' ief Your ruddy cheeks are withered with your tears. I sing to one wiiom Time hath not yet claimed, — The sole survivor of the soundless past. The single relic of an age scarce named. Unshaken by the centuries in their haste. I sing to no ephemeral flowers that blow Their fragi-ant petals in the spring, and fade; A hundred generations of the hoary pines will know My love to gambol in their sylvan shade. To Thee, fair damsel, let my verses rise Like warbled matins of the lark at morn. And let the splendor of thy sunny eyes Dispel my dismal cares and thoughts forlorn. What though, sweet one. in Alexander ' s day Your last remaining tooth by chance was lost? What though your hair had long since passed away ' Ere Caesar yet the Rubicon had crossed? Wliat though your voice is harsh and cracked and shrill? What though your fiice would sleeping children friglit? Can I describe the strange, upsurging thrill, I felt when first I saw you in the light? Yours a nobler heritage than gaudy show. Than fleeting beauty yours a grander fate; And Vanity, inflamed by youth, can never know The honored path that leads to your estate. For you it was who saw, on glistering sands Where Nilus spreads his stream of amber hue The pyramids, slow built by countless hands, In toiling ascent labor toward the blue; And you it was who on the Canaan hills Tended the fleecy flocks with Abraham. Conversed with Isaac, wept at Jacob ' s ills. Saw Aaron slay the sacrificial lamb. Yi)u knew the cause of Babylon ' s decav. f la ' TH the: The poet scratches around for a com- parison. He chooses a hill, as being the most permanent thing he can think of. Saw (Jroorp wtth splcndtd Kcnitis Ilglil the world. Saw Homo extend her military sway. And saw her fmni her throne hy snvage hurled. Your memory oiitstretfhes history ' s span: Yoir o seen siiceesshe empires rise and fall.

Ah, no! Perhaps in ages far remote The river may in other channels run.

Before whose rugged face, in solemn file And noiseless pageantry the centuries sweep. The poet strenuously insists tliat he prefers to worship from afar. and. lest his true sentiments should 1)0 dis- covered, he refuses tlie imblication of liis name. — KDITUll.

It was a noble house, built upon magnificent plans, and inhabited by the scions of many illustrious families. But that ' s straying from our bailiwick. Suffice to say that the news of this great loss to the Frat came to the knowledge of " Goat " Pleasants, philanthropist, and there- at deep throbs of pity welled up in his bony bosom, and he became swayed by those inner springs of action which move us when we know not (neither did " Goat. " ) So he telegraphed " sympathy, and AID if needed. " Then he laid his good ear close to Mother Earth to detect the first tremors of a call for aid from his fratres. But, sad to relate, he fell asleep on the job, and was rudely awakened by an A. D. T. boy with a message from Bloomington asking for $200.00 assist- ance from the Austin chapter. Staves of Diogenes ' washtub! Think of it: two hundred iron d ollars! More money than all the frat men in town have had since Bill Morrow quit endorsing checks. But " Goat " was not lacking in resourcefulness; he trailed down town and drew all of the Chapter money out of bank and prepared a mes- sage to his fratres as follows : " Phi Gam House, Bloomington, Ind. Will do all possible to help you, but this chapter hasn ' t a cent in bank at present. Aaron W. Pleasants. " Notice that Aaro)i, girls. That means, in Sanskrit, a " go-gitter. " When " Goat " reached the telegraph office to send this wire, he found that the original message asking aid was a frame-up, concocted in the lugubrious mind of Big John, his frat brother, who did it with his little thatchit. __ _ Mor a fnaA jAtr¥Mtf A j w»i» trfii Mr rx sc c 289 € 1510 iU ) !

THE earnestness of the young man ' s appeal was without avail. The girl laughed and said that she had only played and he knew naught of girls and did not know she loved him. He could not think or see; all the world was blank and his a hideous, drear existence. He staggered to his feet; his face paled ; he looked again towards the girl and thrust a pistol to his head. The girl gasped and tried to cry out but the time for her to speak had passed. His finger pressed and tightened on the trigger; she hid her head sick with fear. A hideous cry broke from him and she turned to see the blood streaming down his neck. She was strangely cool now. " Percival, " she said, " You are saved. The hammer got caught in your ear.

It seems he was College year. 1909-10. A Texan, a Native, a Braggart — but then He left us his notes, which, a la Wallace Irwin, We put underneath. Advance, reader, and stir in. First Dam ' came in the world _,, . On top of a whirl Inmg Of political thunder and smoke; They were making connections With spring-time elections. And candidates daily went broke. The air reeled with: " Liarl Muckraker! and Thief! Partisan backing! Frat-sucker! " — in brief, The collegiate world was in such a turmoil That candidates ' reps were cooked to a parboil; ' Twas " Don ' t vote for Tic Seay! and Rap on Towne Young I If either ' s elected, the studes are sure stungi Tick ' s mixed with the ladies And is catching blue Hades, Feuille is bribing the suffragette vote; For The Texan, Mark Hannah Is all the banana — • The females are cooking poor Jeff Stinson ' s goat. Gene Harris will win, since he ' s no opposition. But we won ' t bet a cent on Boyles ' getting position. " The race was red hot, full of ginger and fire. With Dinny for referee and Tick Seay for umpire. Who. in spite of the place, lost his race with precision, Though Mark McGee won on the judge ' s decision; Then some votes that were missing Kicked up such a hissing. Truth couldn ' t be heard at all for the clatter; But Tick all the while THE € iga Just smole a sweet smile And handed The Texan to Mark on a platter. Then peace came at last, but the sun of the morrow Smiled down on a field of candidates ' sorrow: With Towne perched aloft — Tick completely snowed under Bob Holliday yelling " Ouch! " " Murder! " and " Thunder! " And Boyles, the ill-fated, Was completely prostrated. All others put up a stiff groan; All the candidates beaten Who had gotten the mitten Sorrowfully chanted this moan: " O student votes that got our goats. Why did you serve us so; We expected opposition slaps. But not a party blow. And when you checked the ballots up And finished up the search. Why did you blast our humble hopes And leave us in the lurch? " School opened again in the month of September, With Graft at the reins, and Turmoil a member; And, in place of Old Johnson, a new guy named Webster Who played hob with Polit and behaved like a lobster, Till the whole thing amounted to a fifteen-round bout ' Twixt Hackett and Webster, and the latter went out. The thing caused a flutter, A faculty mutter. Though the affair blew over quite soon. But you can ' t blame the Doc For flying his block. When Charles wrote him up in the Austin Tribune. Then the medical fee Put the studes on a spree, But what was a fellow to do? It naturally follows They got his three dollars In spite of his wrath, rage, and stew. Then Young and the Council took a try in the matter, And attempted to raise up a faculty spatter; But Prex only smiled when the grave Council Spoke Copped onto the coin, and laughed at his joke. Then the average stude got grumpy and sallow. Till he found that Doc Gilbert was a jolly good fellow — Much nicer to talk to than William the Dean, Right there with the " glad hand, " right there on the scene; Who made sickness fly like rats before weasels. Gave us all leaves of absence, and cured up the measles; And he sent us to Seton without drain on our purses. Where the poor, stricken studes could flirt with the nurses; In fact, ' twas so pleasant, studes forgot their dyspepsia, And handed the Doc quite a peach of a rep — sure! Then, before the exams, the school was all in good humor. And the whole body politic showed not a tumor. O Sidney B., O Sidney E., And likewise Faculty. We have to take you as you are. Though oft we disagree. At times we have a spat or two, We think that you ' re too slow, But the world still keeps on turning, and You ' re not half bad, you know. 296 1510 m »3mi. % But before the term quit with the Ides of December, Some one kicked up a row in the month of November; Football was the reason — we had a good team, too, But as to its winning, it just couldn ' t seem to. Sending North for a coach, we acquired Doctor Draper, Whose thoughts on the game were not drawn from vapor. Then the whole school began to talk gridiron at once, . nd the Phi Beta Kappa soon looked like a dunce. The hash-houses all talked of Draper ' s pen-tactics. How badly we ' d wallop the Cadets with our black tricks. But the College Cadets Were not finished yet, As they silently grinned, and sneaked on the scene; Our coach was a getter, But they ' d gone us one better. And, in place of a coach, had hired them a team. For Mr. Moran, their coach, had hied to the North, And from Harvard and Yale had hustled them forth; And the Indian from Carlyle Had put on his war-smile And tackled the study of raising the onion; While Smith, Brown, and Shippe Struck the true farmer ' s clip. Or the art of pill-rolling as taught by one Munyon. Things drifted along for a short week or two. And the Longhorns scarce realized what was to do; And while we were whipping poor S. W. U., Whose boys knew Football less than does a sailor — The Farmers were shaping an excellent crew. Who artfully won by a small score from Baylor. Then, Gee! What a spree! Ouch! where were we? We all went to Houston — Got soaked in the rain. And the money we had We lost on the game; For Balenti and Kelly, They mashed us to jelly — The whole team played much as if they ' d a jag on; They were scraped in the mud. They were covered with blood. And looked like a souse who ' d dropped off the wagon. And disgusted alumni Who had lost all their money By carelessly dropping it all on the massacre. Said harsh things and rude To the average stude. And called the affair less game than fiasco. " Aha! " said the victors, Agriculture will win — ' Twas the brain and the brawn That brought the coin in. " And then as an encore, and with no misgiving. Lord help us! they licked us again at Thanksgiving! Oh, A. M., Oh, A. M., ' Tis true our efforts fail ; We used to beat the Farmer lads. But can ' t lick Penn. or Yale; And though you trounced us roundly. One thought our sadness cheers — An honest team of real cadets Won once in seven years! JV Fourth Dam Thing Fifth Dam Thing Now we ' ll back to elections boiling anew, With a whole tribe of politics (damnable crew!) Messing about — ' twas the first of the year, And for absent flunked friends we were shedding a tear; When a racket arose That beggars description. Which, as every one knows. Was another election. Then, My! To the sky Rose insult, invective, and fierce exclamation, In which the big bosses all tried explanation Of the It and the I— Of the Who And the Why— Of the great and glorious Final Ball! What a fall! Sims and Jones, Jones and Sims, When you ' re in politics, trouble begins. Then B. Hall campaigners all began hustling. Making a terrible fuss and a clatter. Till even the English profs halted their bust (l)ling Long enough to inquire what the deuce was the matter. Then the great day arrived, ' twas the morn of election. When the timid co-ed, blushing, made her selection; And seventy votes won the fight for Mutts Jones, Whom worry had worn to a mere bag of bones — While Billy ' s supporters, who had been healthy scrappers. With smelling salts rushed to the aid of the Kappas. This thing made quite a fuss, Some cuss and discuss. But the average stude saw nothing at all In the whole affair. But a waste of hot air. And that was a glorious Final Bawl. Oh. Murray Jones, Oh. Murray Jones, Why was it that you won? And William Sims, Oh, William Sims, What put you on the bum? Perhaps you know the reason — You ' re much like other men — We do not know, we do not care. But please don ' t run again. Next winter arrived with a stray dash of spring, And various things occurred in the term — Such as Texan editions whose memories bring An idea of what turned even the worm. Next the Drama and Learning presented a threnody- The Band gave a concert, and Ashbel a comedy; While the Curtain Club With a rub-a-dub-dub Presented Stark Young and his estimable company; Whe n English the Red And Bob ' s blondined head Gave an excellent chance for the knockers to thump any. And the grief of the populace had hardly subsided, And the average stude to smile had decided, When The Texan announced that plays caused such a ' pother. The Lanier would give one, and Rex Shaw ' d give another. Meanwhile The Coyote bloomed out over night. With a sort of half-baked dramatic edition, A month late, ' tis true, and ' twas not over-bright. But at least it stirred up some little sedition. Then the Second of March caused quite a discussion. And the Laws and C. E ' s. came near having a ruction. For a rumor spread That Claire was dead That the .Junior class, as a nefarious whole, In a spirit of sport Had committed a tort And parted poor Frederick ' s corpse from his soul. But it all came to nothing — it seems that the Ilickeys, An ancient quartet long thought to be buried, To stir up the strife had got drunk on gin-rickies And the great Alec ' s spirit to secrecy hurried. My hat! Near a spat Occurred on the campus when Alec was gone; But some reprobate Hickey Confessed to the trick he And his other associates put on the town. Where, O where is Alec Claire, And where is Perry, too? The Engineer is sad and glum. The Law is looking blue. Then where has dear Old Perry gone. And where is Alec Claire? O where, O where may they be found? — And echo answers, " Where? " Then spring With a ring Made its opening bow — And the rest of the year That was finished by now Respectfully bowed To the listening crowd And sedately walked off quite calmly, which then Was the end of College Year, 1909- ' 10. —William B.
