For these Juniors dwelt in a temple of learning, where there were many things worthy to be recorded, verily they dwelt in the temple which in the Badger tongue is called U. W. Now this book was to be for the afflicting of the nations, yea for afflicting them with divers and great plagues: plagues of puns, and plagues of cuts, and plagues of verse, and whatsoever plague pla£ueth the brain of man, with these were the nations to be plagued. And in those days, there ruled in this temple of learning certain mighty men, and the mighty men sware unto the Juniors saying: “By the great horned spoons, ye shall do that which it hath seemed good in your heart to do; for the mighty men are with you, even to Elisha the Badgerite of the tribe of Keysan.” But behold as the cold and dismal days drew on an evil spirit came into the temple which did stir up dissension between the mighty men and them which were called Juniors and the conflict waxed hot. So all the days of the book were five and seventy days, and it died. . And behold in the six and eightieth year there arose yet other Juniors, and they filled the temple, yea sometimes overflowing into the fields about the temple and the very orchards thereof, and they displaced the Juniors that went before them. Now when the spirit of wisdom had come upon them like the wandering bean from the bean-shooter, they said in their hearts: “ Let us not do like unto the Juniors of ’86 and ’87—for 1112 TttE TR0OH0S. thus were the classes before them called—let us not be fearful in heart, let us put forth a book like unto the first, whose reading was for the troubling of the nations. And the mighty men saw the work of the Juniors of ’88 that it was good. And the mighty men did prosper them exceedingly in their work even unto Elisha the Badgerite of the tribe of Keysan. Now the time draweth near for the appearing of the book and great is the rejoicing in the temple. The Senior neglect-eth his ethics for the book, the Sophomore putteth away his tar and club and the little Freshman within the gates bloweth his little conch with joy. Now these are the names of the men of cunning who did aid in making the book, besides the men of the Juniors whose names are written in the book: There was a Gentile whose surname was Towne, and he was crafty in the law; and Eckel, who was likewise called Philip and Ryder and Park and Bryant of the tribe of Jesse. These have all wrought well for the adornment of the book. Now in the temple of learning were certain tribes of men, who possessed mighty secrets. And some of these men did withdraw their support from the book. Yea with their heels they did kick. They would have no annual from the great temple of learning because they would not that the name of another tribe should appear first in the book. And the names of these tribes were in the Grecian tongue; BETA THETA PI, PHI KAPPA PSI, CHI PSI, and SIGMA CHI. Therefore the names of the men of these tribes are blotted out from the book which the Juniors did write for the afflicting of the nations. Now this is the beginning of the book. In it the Juniors of ’88, greet the other temples in the country where the bird of freedom floppeth and screecheth in his might. Yea to all peoples, whoso readeth the book, may there come peace after affliction and laughter after tears. Let the trumpet blow. Selah. B©AR© ©F REGENTS.

The very wise and liberal effort of the United States government to promote by land grants higher education in the states did not at lirst meet with the success that might justly have been expected from it. The people were accustomed to rely on private and religious effort for this class of instruction, and they responded but slowly to the new method and the new incentives. The motley population of the northwestern states, and the very rapid growth of these states, have made this public aid exceedingly necessary, Without it, higher education would have been very partial and limited. The last twenty years have very much altered the popular appreciation of state universities. These institutions have come forward rapidly in this period, and are now entering vigorously on a very important work. In no portion of the country is this assertion more true than in the northwestern states. Among these universities that of Wisconsin stands foremost. The University of Michigan, won the lead by the early adoption of the state, by large professional schools, and by securing the patronage from abroad that naturally falls to the university that first achieves marked excellence. Conceding these advantages to the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin is not inferior to it or to any of the universities of the (2)18 THE TROCHOS. west in the character of its work, or in its command of the educational interests of the state to which it belongs. The University of Wisconsin has had two very distinct periods in its history; one of adversity and one of prosperity. The first period extends from its organization in 1849, to reor" ganization in 1866; the second extends from 1866 to the present time. The first portion of its history was one of many embarrassments and of feeble attainments. It had graduated in its college course in—'66 but fifty-eight students, not so many as now compose a single class. Though its numbers at times were very considerable, the collegiate work was overwhelmed by preparatory work,' normal work, and various forms of subsidiary instruction. It can hardly be said that in this period a university life had emerged in distinct and visible form. The corps of instructors was weak in numbers, burdened with work, and exposed to arbitrary changes. The lands and finances of the institution were badly managed, and but little over half a million was secured from resources that should have yielded several millions. Much hostility was manifested toward the university by various educational interests in the state, and rival institutions at one time came quite near capturing the university and dividing its spoils among themselves. The largest class in this period of its history was that of —'6i, made up at graduation of nine members. Even the small number of collegiate students previously secured was much reduced during the war, and not till—"68, did so many as nine again appear on commencement day. The university was reorganized in —'66, and in —'67, placed under the direction of Dr. Chadbourne. From thatJL J- HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY. 19 time to the present, it has steadily gained ground. The distrust and criticism to which it had been exposed have almost wholly disappeared. Most of the citizens of the state are justly proud of it, and all accept it as a settled fact. The state has adopted it as its own, and has met its growing wants with great liberality. In this particular I think the State of Wisconsin has surpassed every other state in the Northwest, and has become to these states a deserved object of emulation. There are some features of the university, now so firmly established, that deserve specific notice. In the natural beauty of its grounds, and the desirableness of its location on Lake Mendota, it stands almost unrivaled among the colleges and universities of the United States. When this beauty shall be fully developed, it will be a constant source of inspiration, and an ever renewed invitation to the student to a thorough delight in the natural world. Adding itself to the enthusiasm of youth and the enthusiasm of inquiry it makes the morning hours of knowledge bright in reality and glorious in memory. The university, when the buildings now in process of erection shall be completed, and the appliances they call for fully provided, will be one of the very best equipped institutions in the entire country for an extended pursuit of the natural sciences. Though considerable work remains to be done in the provision of apparatus, cabinets and books, the goal seems within easy reach, and when reached, it will be one in which a great state may justly take pride both on the basis of absolute and relative excellence. The University of Wisconsin has given full and free extension to co-education, and is distinguished above other similaf r20 THE TROCHOS. institutions in the number of young women whom it graduates. This portion of its history has been very successful. This fact, in years to come, will be recognized as chief among its claims to be a great social power. The students of the university—though we would speak modestly on this point when comparing ourselves with the institutions just about us—are a remarkable body of young women and young men in their devotion to their work, in the good order they maintain, and in the economy which prevails among them. They have abundantly justified the liberty that has been granted them and the confidence that has been reposed in them by their instructors. Rarely has a more kindly, more just, or more wise temper in the relation of students to each other, to the faculty and to their pursuits, prevailed in any educational institution than that found in the University of Wisconsin. A single other point is of great interest, the relation of the university to the general education of the state. Few institutions have as many collegiate students from the states to which they belong as has this university. By means of a large accredited list, it stands in close connection with the high schools of the state, stimulating them to improved work, aiding them in their own field and also enlarging upward that field. It sends out a large number of its own students to take part in the instruction of the state. It helps to give a united and commanding force to the educational interests of the entire state. The colleges disconnected from the system of public instruction are quickened to generous rivalry by the university, and are, in turn, fitted to bring to it needed criticism. We believe the strength of educational work in the state, in all depart-.HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY. 21 merits and directions, is many times greater than it would be without its noble university. The students of the university, its alumni and, above all, the entire people, stand pledged to this highest expression of the principle of universal education. The chancellors of the university, in the earlier period of trial, were John H. Lathrop and Henry Barnard; the presidents, in the period of growth, have been Paul A. Chad-bourne, John W. Twombley and John Bascom. Prof. John W. Sterling has been associated with the institution from its origin almost to the present time. His character, long services and constant devotion to the university greatly endeared him to the alumni. His is the first historic name in its annals. mm7. 33 34 55 36 57 35 50 GO 61 61 63 64 65 66 67 68 69I24 THE TROCHOS. BI©@RAPMIES Of Members of the Faculty Who Have Corrie to the University since the Publication of the Last Annual. T. C. CHAMBERLAIN, A. M., Ph. D., was born in Shel-byville, Illinois, 1843. When he was three years old, his family removed to Wisconsin, and his residence has ever since been in this state. He spent several years on a farm. He early determined to obtain a liberal education and graduated at Beloit in 1866. He was for the next two years, principal of the High School at Delavan. He then took a special course of one year in Michigan University, at Ann Arbor. During the next four years he was Professor of Natural Sciences at the Whitewater Normal School. He was then elected Professor of Geology in Beloit College. In 1876, he was appointed by Gov. Ludington, as Chief State Geologist and his services in this capacity were performed with distinguished ability, resulting in the publication of four large volumes, completed in 1883, which rank among the first publications of the kind in the country. For several years past he has been connected with the U. S. Geological Survey, which position he still holds. He was elected to the position of President of the University of Wisconsin in June 1886, and will assume the duties of the position in June 1887. He is a strong man, intellectually and physically, and has had a large experience in educational work for a man of his age. JOHN WILLIAM STEARNS, A. M., LL. D., was born in Sturbridge, Mass., August 10, 1839. Graduated at Harvard, in i860. For nearly a year after leaving College taught in the State Normal School, at Winona, Minn. In 1865 wentBIOGRAPHICAL 25 to the University of Chicago, as Tutor in Latin, and was appointed Professor two years later. Resigned June 30, 1874 to accept the position of Director of the National Normal School, to be founded in Tucuman in the Argentine Republic. Before going to South America, however, he made a short visit to Scotland and England, from here sailed directly for South America. Reached Buenos Ayres, Oct. 8, 1874. From here he was sent to Parana, where a Normal School was already established, in order to learn the language, and five months later was put temporarily in charge of that School. In July 1875, reached Tucuman, and immediately began work. The school grew to be very large and successful, but in February 1878, he was obliged to resign on account of the malaria, which rendered him unfit for work. Immediately after his resignation he made a voyage to Europe, visiting France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and England. Returned to America, in July of the same year, and accepted the position of President of the State Normal School, at Whitewater, Wis., which position he held until 1884, when he resigned to accept the Professorhip of Science and Art of Teaching in the Uni-versity of Wisconsin. He is also Editor of the Wisconsin Journal of Education, and besides his regular work from time to time conducts Teacher’s Institutes in different parts of the state. Is A. M., of Harvard 1866, and LL. D., of the University of Chicago, 1877. Published “Homer and his Heroines,” in the North American Review, in i860; “The Miltonic Deity,” in the Christian Review in 1864; “The Emperor, Marcus Aurelius,” in the Baptist Quarterly, in 1873, etc. LUIGI LOMIA, was born in the Island of Sicily, Sept. 16, 1843. Came to this country in 1857. After attending the New York City Ward Schools for one year, he had acquired the English language sufficiently to pass an examination and be admitted to the Free Academy, now known as the College of the City of New York, from which he was graduated after a five26 THE TROCHOS, year course as Bachelor of Science (1863), receiving the degree of Master of Science three years later. A medal for highest proficiency in his class in the Spanish Language and Literature, and also the first dissertation for Oratorical merit at the graduating exercises in 1863, were some of his successes. In 1863, he was appointed by President Lincoln, as a cadet in the U. S. Military Academy, from which he graduated in June, 1867, being assigned to the Fifth Regiment of Artillery, as Second Lieutenant. In 1869, he was promoted to a First Lieutenancy in the U. S. Service and this rank he still holds. From 1868 to 1870, Professor Lomia was on duty at the U. S. Military Academy of West Point, as Assistant Professor of the French and Spanish languages. From 1876 to 1881, he was detailed as Professor of Military Science and Tactics, at the Ohio State University, Columbus, O., where he was also given charge of the higher mathematics as Adjct. Professor of this department and taught Trigonometry, Analytical Geometry and Differential and Integral Calculus. lie has been twice to Europe, since he entered the army, the last time from 1881 to 1882, receiving one year’s leave of absence from the government, he visited the home of his birth and most profitably spent the year otherwise traveling through England, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Malta, and Tunis. In 1885, he was elected Professor of Military Science and Tactics in the University of Wisconsin. Hon. JOHN B. CASSODAY, was born July 7, 1830, in Herkimer County, N. Y. After the death of his father in 1833, his mother moved to Tioga County, Penn. Previous to the age of 17, besides attending the district schools he spent one term at the village school at Tioga, and another term at the Wellsboro Academy. During the next four years he supported himself by teaching in the winter and bv being employed in various kinds of manual labor in summer. Afterwards he spent two terms at the Knoxville Academy, Penn.; two years at the Alfred Academy, N. Y.ione year at J JBIOGRAPHICAL. 27 a Michigan University; and a short time at the Albany Law school. In 1857, he settled in Janesville, Wis., Here he pursued his legal studies in the office of Judge H. S. Conger, until Nov. 1858, when he entered upon the practice of the law, and with slight interruptions he has continued in the active practice of his profession, until his election to the supreme bench in 1880. Judge Cassoday has been a Republican ever since the party was organized. In 1864, he vvas a delegate to the Baltimore Convention and was placed on what was that year the most important committee, that of Credentials. In 1864 he was elected to the Assembly and again in 1876 and was then chosen speaker of that body, serving with distinguished ability. In 1880 he was a delegate at large to the National Republican Convention at Chicago, and was chairman of the Wisconsin delegation. He was the one who announced the vote of the Wisconsin delegation for Jas. A. Garfield, which broke the deadlock and resulted in the nomination of that gentlemen. He has taken active part in almost every presidential election ever since the organization of the Republican party. In 1885, Judge Cassoday was elected Professor of Wills and Constitutional Law, in the Law Department of the University of Wisconsin. BURR W. JONES, was born at Evansville, Wis., March 9, 1846. He lived on a farm, attended the district schools and the Evansville Seminary. He afterward taught school several terms and entered the Universitvof Wisconsin in 1866. He graduated in 1870 in the classical course. He then graduated in the law department in 1871 and was the one chosen to represent his class on commencement day. He continued the study of the law in the office of Col. William F. Vilas and in the spring of 1872 commenced the practice of his profession at Portage City, but only remained there a few months when he returned to Madison and has since practiced law in thatTHE TROCHOS. 28 city. In the autumn of 1872 he was elected District Attorney of Dane County, and in 1874 was reelected to that office. lie has devoted himself to his profession without interruption except that in 1882 he was elected as the Democratic representative in Congress for the third district. While in Congress he was a member of the Committee on War claims and the committee on improvement of the Mississippi River. The greater part of one session during the illness of Judge Geddes he was the acting chairman of the committee on War claims. Since his return from Congress, Mr. Jones has been elected Professor of Evidence and Domestic Relations in the Law Department ot the University of Wisconsin. ARTHUR L. SANBORN, LL. 13., was born at Brasher Falls, St. Lawrence Co., N. Y., November 17, 1850.

In 1874 read law with Hon. Robert Harkness, judge of the Hrst judicial circuit of Wisconsin, and the same year was elected register of deeds for Walworth county which office he held until 1879, when he removed to Madison and soon after entered upon the practice of law.

In the fall of 1874 he accepted the posi-BIOGRAPHICAL. 29 tion of Instructor in Rhetoric and Oratory at the University of Wisconsin, and continued in charge of this department for four years. He then left the University in June 1878, and entered upon the study of the law, thus gratifying a long cherished desire. Finishing the two years course in one, he graduated from the Law College of the University with the class of 1879. In September of the same year he began the practice of law at Madison, and has been highly successful. In the fall of 1882, Mr. Olin was candidate for Member of Assembly from the city of Madison, on the prohibition ticket; in the fall of 1884 he was the prohibition candidate for Congress from the third congressional district, and in the fall of 1886 he somewhat reluctantly became the candidate of the prohibition party for governor of the state.

In June 1885 she was appointed instructor in French in the University of Wisconsin, and during the succeeding year, besides acting in the capacity of instructor, took a post-graduate course in history. In addition to her regular class work, she is this year doing post-graduate work in Greek. JULIUS E. OLSON, B. L., was born in Cambridge, Wis., Nov. 9, 1858, of Norwegian parents.

S. was received from his Alma Mater in 1885. The year following his graduation he taught at Fountain City, Wis. In 1884-5 he held a Morgan Fellowship at Harvard, where he studied Pure and Applied Mathematics. In 1885 he was elected Instructor in Civil Engineering in the University of Wisconsin. FREl) J. TURNER, A. B., was born Nov. 14, 1861, in Portage, Wisconsin. After having completed a course in the Portage High School, he entered the second year of the preparatory course in the University of Wisconsin in the fall of 1878. On account of illness he was absent from the University one year, returning in 1881. In 1884 he graduated with honors in the ancient classical course, taking the Lewis prize at commencement. In June 1884 he declined the instructor-ship in Rhetoric and Oratory at the University to engage in32 THE TROCHOS. journalism. In the spring term of the succeeding year, he conducted Professor Allen’s classes in history during the latter’s absence in Europe. lujune 1885 he was reappointed instructor in Rhetoric and Oratory, which position he now holds, besides being instructor in American History. FREDERICK LrROY SARGENT, was born December 25, 1863, in Boston, Mass. His early education was obtained chiefly in the New York public schools, from which he entered the College of the City of New York. Sickness prevented him from completing his course at this institution but subsequently he studied three years at Harvard University. For two years he gave courses of Botanical lectures in Boston. In 1886 he taught in the Summer Course in Botany at Harvard University. He has written a hand-book entitled “A Guide to the Recognition of the Principal Orders of Cryptogams and the Commoner and more Easily Distinguished New England Genera, Cambridge, 1886,’ and several magazine articles some of which have appeared in a book, under the title of “Through a Microscope,” Chicago, 1886. EDWARD KREMERS, Ph, G., was born February 22, 1865, in Milwaukee, Wis. His early education was received in his native place and at the Mission House College, near Sheboygan, which he attended for three years. At the age of seventeen he entered as apprentice the Pharmaceutical Establishment of L. Lotz in Milwaukee, where he remained for two years. He then entered the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, where he finished the studies of the junior year. The next year he entered the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin and graduated with the class—'86. In the fall of 1886 he was appointed assistant in Pharmacy at the same institution. CHARLES S. SLICHTER, B. S., was born in St. Paul, Minn., April 16, 1864. Lived in Chicago since 1869.

After graduating he spent one year as instructor in Mathematics in Chicago Aethenaeum. In 1886 he was called to the University of Wisconsin as instructor in Mathematics. WILBUR S. TUP PER, A. B., B. L., was born at Union, Rock Co., Wis., April 11, 1864. He received his early education at his home, and was prepared for college at the Evansville High School. He entered the University of Wisconsin in 1882, and graduated in 1886, in both the ancient and modern classical courses. In the fall of—'86 he entered the University to take a post graduate course in Latin and Greek, and was shortly after elected instructor in Rhetoric. As the portrait of PATRICK WELSH, janitor of the main building of the University of Wisconsin, appears in this year’s annual it is but appropriate that a short sketch of his life should accompany it. For so many years connected with the University, he has a large circle of acquaintences among those who were at one time students of this institution, most of whom no doubt cherish a fond remembrance for him on account of his pleasant wit, and hearty friendship. He is a native of Ireland, and, as nearly as we are able to determine, was born at sometime during the year 1835, at Portumna, in the County of Galway. Came to this country in 1854, landed at New York, from there he went to N. J. later to Penn., and in 1857 came to Madison, Wis., where for four years he followed his trade of making slate roofs, which he had learned in Ireland. He helped to lay the roof on the main building of the University, the Episcopal church, and various other buildings in the city and elsewhere. He was made janitor in 1861, which position he has held ever since and has performed most promptly and faithfully the duties of his responsible office, . (») i THE TROCHOS. __ 34 THE LIBRARIES.

The library is open d lily, except Sundays, from 9 A. M. lo 5:30 P.M. The astronomical library at the Washburn Observatory is a valuable collection of astronomical works. Here are found the Nautical Almanacs of the English, French, German and American nations, in which is recorded the situation of the sun, moon and stars at all times of the year; the publications of Harvard Observatory, of the Naval Observatory at Washington, and of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, besides also reports from Pulcova, Russia, also the Astronom-ische Nachrichten, bound volumes of astronomical newspapers in various languages, a large number of star catalogues, volumes on the survey of India, signal service reports and a considerable collection of scientific and miscellaneous works. It is a tolerably complete astronomical library containing all the exchange astronomical magazines and current astronomical works. The records of the observatory are reduced and published. . The library contains about fifteen hundred volumes and two thousand pamphlets. Of these nearly two-thirds treat of astronomical subjects This library is supported by a fund given by Cyrus Woodman, at one time a law-partner of the late Gov. Washburn. This fund amounts to $5 °°0 the interest of which supports the library.______________________________________________________ THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 37 THE ALUMNI ASS©(Si TI©N. The Alumni Association of the University of Wisconsin was formed through the efforts of Professor Sterling, by the resident graduates June 26, 1861. It was formed for the purpose of promoting friendly feeling among its members, and of retaining their interest in their alma mater. The first officers were: C. T. Wakeley, President; J. T. Smith, Vice-President; J. M. Flower, Cor., Secretary; W. F. Vilas, Rec., Secretary; J. D. Coryell, Treasurer. There is at present a growing feeling among the alumni that the Association should be represented on the Board of Regents, as they are best qualified to determine its needs. The annual meeting of the association is held at commencement time. The literary exercises, consisting of an oration and a poem or essay are held on the eve before commencement. The regular business meeting takes place immediately after the graduating exercises, and a reception and banquet is given later. With only a short intermission during war time, these meetings have been kept up since June 24, 1862, when the first entertainment was held in the City Hall, at which C. T. Wakelev delivered the address, and R. W. Hubbell read the poem. The officers for 1886-7 are: C. S. Montgomery, of Omaha, Neb., President; Miss Alice J. Sanborn of Freeport, 111., Vice-President; Dr. Jno. M. Dodson, of Madison, Wis., Secretary; Miss Lucy M. Gay, of Madison, Wis., Treasurer.3d THE TROCHOd. P®ST ©R ©UATES. FLORENCE BASCOM, A. B., B.

RISTORY OP ’S’?. 41 MIST0RY ©F ’87 It was over three years ago that sixty-five young and innocent specimens of humanity, gathered from all parts of the great Badger State, clustered for the first time about the bulletin board in University Hall. A new class was entering upon its career, and in these bewildered, unsophisticated Freshmen, striving so desperately to penetrate the mysteries of the time-table, meekly submitting to the curious scrutiny of higher-classmen and the impositions of professors, we may recognize by close inspection and a vigorous act of memory—ourselves;—the class of ’87. For—for the encouragement of future Freshmen be it said— we had doubtless many of the characteristics of the Freshmen of every age and clime. We were, during the first weeks of our course meek, unsophisticated and submissive. We regarded Sophomores with an “a priori ' sense of suspicion, which experience soon amply justified. We looked upon Seniors with wonder and admiration; not unmixed with pity for their grave responsibilities, so fittingly symbolized by the imposing plug. We objected strongly to the epithet ot “little Freshy ’ which, however, we soon learned to consider a mere “drop in the bucket” of our sufferings. But we proceeded as rapidly as possible to overcome these weaknesses, and we came forth from our first class meeting with feelings of dignity which we had never experienced before, and may never experience again. We felt equal to any emergency, whether of red pepper, mucilage or H2 S. We bore with stoic fortitude all that Sophomoric wit was able to devise for our discomfiture, and before the end of the year, showed a spirit of forgiveness rarely exhibited in Freshmen. It was not so much the deed as - 42 THE THOCHOS. the manner of doing that brought wonder to the minds of all. For often before had two classes showed the delights of a party, one taking the music and the waxed floor, the other the cake and ice cream. On this memorable occasion however, ’87 and '86 joined hands in the dance, and partook of refreshments together in a brightly lighted hall. Surely it was as if the lion and lamb should lie down together. This spirit of peace we took with us to our Sophomore year, when we showed wonderful lenity to the Freshmen. Not that we thought them especially worthy of such favor; but, having heaped coals of fire on the heads of last year’s Sophs, we felt that it was unnecessary to avenge our wrongs according to custom, upon the innocent Freshmen. We then stood ready at the beginning of our junior year with unimpaired energy to dive into the depth of Physics, and soar to sublime heighths of oratory. So arduous and unremitting were our labors in the former department, that we accomplished—it is to be supposed—in seven weeks what other classes had labored over no more successfullv for fifteen. This year too some of us studied American History, and, fired by the independent spirit of our forefathers, we to in solemn conclave assembled swore to “ hang together ” to the bitter end. But, an “ unforeseen contingency ” having arisen, our zeal to join the ranks of the martyrs somewhat abated, and we betook ourselves once more to the occupation of ordinary mortals. Nor have we since been heard “proclaiming liberty throughout the land,” though should the opportunity arise, we should no doubt be found ready to embrace it. Now at length, having ushered out ’86 in a most gallant manner, we stand on the highest plane of college life. We are Seniors, full fledged, and if we lack any of ordinary grave-and-reverendness of that class, let it be taken to show how lightly the burdens and cares of high position rest on those well fitted to sustain them. Such an interpretation of our behavior was perhaps neces- —r HISTORY OF 87. 43 sary on that night of last October when, assembled in the spacious barn of the University farm we donated fully twenty-five cents worth of manual labor to the department of agriculture, with what effect in other departments has not been ascertained. Since that festive occasion however, '87 has shunned all gaity, and, as may be judged from an occasional remark let fall, we have devoted ourselves with marvelous zeal, to 44 adversity’s sweet milk—Philosophy ' Now is a season of comparitive quiet, which however must inevitably be followed by that period of busy class meetings where Seniors are wont to reenact the scenes of their Fresh-manhood. Then will come the final act, when Library Hall shall for the last time resound with our eloquence, and we shall enter the honorable ranks of the Alumni. What then shall be the fate of ’87, no longer one but many, who shall say ? The book of fate is sealed. Hut who can doubt that one day, when names now on the roll of '87 shall shine conspicuous in the annals of the nation, our Alma Mater and our successors under her fostering care, shall think of us, the class of ’87 with pride. “Then shall our names, Familiar in their mouths as household words. Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.”44 THE TROCHOS. SEN l©R @L SS. ANCIENT CLASSICAL COURSE. Ralph Earl Blount, Byron III. Oscar Hallam, Madison. Andrew James Hogan, Wonewoc.

JUNIOR CLASS. 47 MiST©r Y, In coming years, when it shall be written of some great statesman, poet, or warrior that he belonged to the class of ’88, U. W. shall the world forever turn longing glances over the pages of history for some record of that class? Nay, not so. Greece had her Grote; Rome, her Gibbon; and this class more important than these nations, because alive and giving promise of things to be, must not lack a place on Clio's scroll. Let the bending of the twig foreshadow the inclination of the tree. The class, as a class, was first forced into the world's notice by the preposterous picture that graced the 63d page of the first Trochos. With becoming modesty that engraving portrayed the tad-pole state of '88, that class whose existence is now of such importance to the University. On the third of September, 1884, this tad-pole found itself so metamorphosed by its newly developed limbs that its old body was entirely lost sight of. It was now a part of the great college system. Like all young things it was ungainly and awkward in its new condition, but it was protected from the keen thrusts of the world by an impenetrable mantle of the color characteristic of the amphibia to whose rudimentary stage we likened it. How many things its individual members discovered in those first few days after their new-opened eyes became used to the glare of the intellectual light surrounding them! Pat was soon recognized as the severe disciplinarian, whose stern glances were to be a substitute for father’s rod in this home of learning: Ilogbin was found to be a kindly foster mother, to look after rips and tears and to return prodigal buttons to48 THE TROCHOS. f their field of usefulness; the bulletin board was a new found table of stone; and soon the difference became apparent between the President’s lectures and class-meetings, particularly in regard to the likelihood that H2 S.+O. P. IT. would be generated. But these memories, though pleasant, must not be dwelt upon: for other deeds more active and noble are to be recorded. The first martial episode was the siege of Troy. It was conducted against the class in, class meeting assembled, by means of the chemical afore-mentioned. After a brave resistance of fifteen minutes, the insurgents were repelled by the power of their own weapons, which they had ingloriously abandoned. Succeeding this, as one of its results, was the battle of Murphy skro, which took place one Friday night early in the term. In this, one of the heroic defenders of the siege of Troy was treacherously waylaid near the site of South Dormitory. Here the gentle Fresh bore off the palm leaving full many a Soph, in chagrin, dangling his bonnet and plume. Then was the hatchet buried by Fresh and Soph; they formed an alliance and during a joint jubilee over the peace, they suffered a joint loss. One of their strong points— in fact their main forte, the cream—was captured by vandal clans of Juniors and Seniors. For this, retaliation was sought in the battle of White (com)Plains. This (s)tarry night did not pass before quite an impression had been made on the noses and foreheads of the upper classmen. Thus, in the fierce broil of battle and the more peaceful pursuit of knowledge, ‘88 passed its time until the year rolled round and found its nose disjointed by the advent of a little (?) stranger. What child is not disgusted when it finds the attention of the whole family given to a new, younger, and—to him —less beautiful member. So when little brother ’89 appeared ‘88, now Soph, grew restive and tried to annoy its •There in Home dispute among different authorities, as to whether the trophy here mentioned was n palm or a hickory club.JUNIOR CLASS. 49 new found relative by sly pinches administered while the parental faculty’s back was turned. But the baby was a second infant Hercules, which, instead of squalling and growing red, in the face turned fiercely on the offender. Then the faculty interfered, and calling together its four children, delivered them a lecture on family relations. After that, the Soph, learned to regard his brother with patronizing good nature and to calmly pursue the even tenor of his way. “ Happy,” says Carlyle, “ are the people whose annals are vacant.” Happy then must be the class of ’88 as Juniors ; for with the exception of the assumption of a new title and a plug hat, there have been to them few events worthy the chronicling. But “ the oak grows silently in the forest a thousand years,” and silence in this case is no sign that the class does not grow; it is rather a sign of uninterrupted growth. Such has been in part the history of a class not indeed perfect, nor by any means totally depraved, but showing such vigorous, progressive mental growth as to warrant confident expectations of its playing a leading role, on the amateur stage of the university and afterward on the larger stage of the world. It has not yet trodden the beaten path of college life to the end, and who can predict its future except by probabilities? But we have trustworthy grounds for hope. C. w50 THE TR0CH0S. JUNI0R ®Lf SS.

In examining the history of the Sophomore Class, we have found a copy of a toast recently delivered by one of our members. It seems to meet fully the requirements of a class history and we therefore respectfully submit it for your consideration. “It is with pleasure that we rise to respond on behalf of the Sophomores. The encomiums pronounced on the other classes would leave little to be said in praise of the Sophomores were we disposed to indulge in self-laudation. While we shall not dwell on the deeds of valor that have thus far marked our course, we can not, however, pass over the fact that we excel all previous classes in intellectual force, moral courage, brilliancy of wit, preponderance of numbers, and stand, par ex-cellencc, the class of the University. Our first remarkable achievement was the feat of dancing successfully a waltz to the measures of a grand march, and by this act alone we won the highest regard of the upper-class-men. Besides our representatives have won distinguished honors in the musical, the declamatory and the base-ball course. In place of the poetical motto of our Freshman year, we have recently adopted the more fitting and independent one of “Paddle your own canoe,” as our future guide. Also we have guyed the class of ’90 with perseverance and success. The graduation of our class will mark the centennial of the inauguration of the first President of the republic. On this coincidence we lay especial stress, by it we have been impelled EEZ9 ■t jamSOPHOMORE CLASS. 55 to greater exertions and to higher aims. George Washington, our noblest patriot, have we sought to emulate in all our deeds. We have striven to do this, both by being truthful and loyal and by attaining distinction in Military Tactics.

If the structure was a little infirm on account of the nail being upside down, the failing may be readily excused as the result of a directed effort.

He who chronicles events while occurring is naturally under great disadvantages as compared with him who writes a history in after ages. Were it our task to compose a history of the Freshman year of the Senior Class, we might delve deep into antiquity and obtain a measureless mass of material. Were we to write a history of 89’s Freshman year—but why speak of absurdities? The stirring events of our Freshman year are so recent, have so disturbed the equilibrium of the Senior plug and aroused angry passions in Sophomoric breasts, that a cool philosophical history seems almost an impossibility. But we will calm our ardent spirits and commence. On the eighth of September, 1886, we entered—in this respect we resembled very much every class that has preceded us. For the first time we boldly marched up the campus, 154 strong, and entered for the four years’ race. During the hazy September days, our energies were taxed witli the double duty of teaching the festive Soph., while living out his motto, to let other canoes alone, and of showing our mental superiority in all directions. If any unduly curious reader wish to know with what studies we busy ourselves in our Freshman year, we respectfully refer him to the catalogue. He will find that we set out at the very beginning of our course to exemplify our motto, Uavra Ku ficrat YUt ov During our first term, we had the customary number of class-meetings. (To our credit and their health, be it said, that no uninvited guests ever presented themselves.) During the second term (up to date), we have had but one meeting. P. S.—Meetings held at the Gym. on account of the limited capacity of South Chapel.■nW—Hl Ml M IIMHIIl FRESHMAN CLASS. 61 In the balmy autumn days, the noble youth of our class were initiated into the mysteries of military science, attempting in vain to obey the commands of Sophomore drill sergeants to “Steer to the larboard,” etc. Were not every event necessary to a complete history, we-would gladly refrain from all mention of the word fence. From a desire, both to show a magnanimity, worthy of victors to defeated ‘89, and never to be guilty of inflicting a— on an innocent and unsuspecting public, we will only add a list of “ past remembrances. ” Baa-baa. Bow-wow. Green paint. White paint. Red paint. Cabbage head. Eighty-nine. Shingle. Soph, boy—Pitcher of water. Red cambric. Blue cambric. No cambric. Fire escapes. Broken thumb. High fence. Low fence. Broken-hearted rooster. Tar, sack cloth and ashes. The poet has it: “The fence no more on the campus etauds The rallying place of warlike bands.” We come now to the main part of the theme—our co-eds. But we are incapable (being Freshmen) to handle such a subject properly. On this inexhaustible subject, we will be silent except to give you reliable references. Concerning our co-eds’ beauty and attractiveness, consult the gentlemen of the Senior Class. The boys of the Junior Class will tell you about their ability. If you are curious in regard to the martial prowess of the Freshmen ladies, go to kids of ’89. With this inspiring subject, we close. We might tack on a pretty conclusion of infinite length, but we dare not, fearing lest we should so efface the impression which the preceding paragraph must have made. “Adieu, adieu, kind friend , Adieu. We dare no longer stay with you, We’ll hang our pen on a weeping-willow tree And may the world go well with thee”f •Header, pleaee supply the latest. IThiH i» not a chestnut.62 THE TROCHOS.

The Literary Societies Athena, Hesperia, Castalia, Laurea, and Adelphia, have for many years held an annual oratorical contest. The partakers in this contest are chosen from the Junior Class, each of the Societies being entitled to one representative. In 1882, Senator G. W. Burrows, of Madison, offered, as a prize, a costly steel engraving, to be given to the society whose representative shall have won it twice. In 1882, and 1883, Hesperia did not compete. The awards, have been as follows: In 1882, Emma J. Sarles, Castalia; in 1883, Fred J. Turner, Adelpha; in 1884, H. C. Ilullinger, Hesperia; in 1885, Florence T. Griswold, Laurea; in 1886, Flora L. Lawson, Castalia. Thus Castalia received the Burrow’s prize, being the society whose representative had first won it twice. For this year the orators are: F. E. Doty, Athena; A. H. Reid, Hesperia; Fannie P. Farnsworth, Castalia; Louise M. McMynn, Laurea; Nat Robinson, Adelphia.a r: a. a- ATHENA. 83 ATHENE 1850. OFFICERS.

HISTORY. Early in the history of the University of Wisconsin, vthe need became urgent of a broader and more practical training than was afforded by the college curriculum. Practice in composition, elocution, disputation and extempore speaking was recognized as the necessary complement of the college course. With a view to secure this, largely through the devoted efforts of the late Vice President J. W. Sterling, in 1850, the Athenaean Society was organized, and in 1852, incorporated, with C. T. Wakely, Levi Booth, G. W. Stoner, D. K. Tenney, F. A. Ogden and Geo. Woodward, Jr., as charter members. For three years Athena supplied the literary need of the whole University, but soon the dissent,84 THE THOCHOS. which unfortunately arose, led to the establishment of a worthy rival, the Hesperian Society. But the University had become large enough to support two literary societies and instead of Athena’s progress being checked by this exodus a new impetus was given to her work. For ten years old North Hall reechoed Athenaean eloquence. In those exciting times, questions over which nations held their breath were discussed and decided by Athenaean debaters in a few hours. In i860, through the kindness of the regents, Athena took possession of her present rooms in University Hall. Not then as commodious as now, they yet served the society a training school for her orators and debaters, destined to win honor for themselves and their society in widely varied fields of usefulness. In 1882, on the remodelling of University Hall, Athena’s rooms were enlarged and refitted; so that now, for convenience, utility and general appearance our hall is all that couid be desired. For thirty-seven years Athena has pursued her career of usefulness, responding to a want not less imperative, and rendering a service not less efficient than many a professional chair. Calm in defeat, sober in victory, her members have aspired to that wisdom exemplified in their patron goddess. Meetings have been held regularly every week, half the society performing duty at each meeting. The exercises at present include debates, oration, papers, discussions and contemporary review. The society has usually given a semipublic and participated in an anniversary besides entering the joint debates and junior exhibition. Though Athena has had her periods of depression, spirit and energy have usually characterized both her weekly meetings and public exhibitions. 1 ler claims for the first place among the literary societies of the University are well supported by her record. In the fourteen joint debates in which she has taken part. Athena has won nine victories and sustained four defeats, one contest ATHENA. 85 i being undecided. She now holds the championship, having for three successive years defeated her most formidable rival, Hesperia. While the University remained in the oratorical association, Athena won all the home, two state, and one interstate contest, and twice has the Lewis Prize been taken at commencement by a member of Athena. Athena's votaries are found in varied occupations and do honor to all professions. Of our present faculty, Profs., Conover and Van-Hise, and Instructors, Hoskins, Olson and Updegraff were Athenaeans, and also Regent A. C. Parkinson, Congressman La Follette and scores of others in important stations of life. Never were Athena’s prospects of future usefulness more promising than at present. With a vigorous membership of sixty-five, she has been obliged, for the time, to close her • doors to all further applicants. May her future be as bright as the present presages. warn86 THE TROCHOS.

It was fortunate, indeed, that the organization of our literary societies followed sp quickly the organization of the University itself. In the years immediately preceding the Civil War, the members of Hesperia found, in the discussion of the great questions that were then agitating the nation, a rare training in argument and oratory.88 THE TROCHOS. In the discussion of America's destiny a patriotism was awakened in every Hesperian that will endure forever, a patriotism that led many to the battle field, and still inspires them to duty in positions of high honor and trust. Hesperia was organized in 1853 and the following persons were charter members: S. W. Botkin, Wm. F. Vilas, R. W. Hubbell, T. D. Coryell, Randall W. Hanson, Alfred W. Lathrop, and Geo. W. Perry. S. W. Botkin graduated in ’57, served his country in the war as 1st, Lieut, Co A., 23rd Reg. After the war he practiced law in Madison till 1881, when he removed to Minneapolis, where he is now located. Post-Master-General Vilas graduated in ’58. served in the war as colonel, returned and pursued the study of law, was for several years professor of law in the faculty of his alma mater, and at the same time was one of her regents; in 1884. he was elected to the assembly, and in the following March took his place as post master general in President Clevelands’ cabinet. In society, Col. Vilas was always recognized as a strong worker and a promising orator. R. W. Hubbell graduated in ’58, studied law, was Co. judge of Oconto County three terms, district attorney two terms, and member of the legislature two terms, and is now located at Hickory, Oconto, Co. T. D. Coryell graduated ’57, and five years later he was drowned. The whereabouts of the other charter members are unknown to us. By the close of the college year 1855, the membership of the society was thirty-three. From the first year of her history, till the close of the war, Hesperia enjoyed a strong, enthusiastic membership. Many of those thirty-three are as well known to the world as they are to Hesperians. George W. Bird joined the society iu ’56 and graduated in ’60. Yet for fully two years afterward he would often return to the old hall to participate in her debates. He, too, entered his country’s service as second lieutenant of Co. D. 40th, Reg’t. After the war he studied law, practised at Jefferson, was a candidate for attorney gen- _______________________________ HESPERIA. 89 eral of Wisconsin on the Democratic ticket in 1886, now a member of Gregory, Bird Gregory of Madison. Contemporary with Mr. Bird was Prof. Parkinson, who is now vice-presideut of the University and Professor of Civil Polity and Political Economy. Another one of the prominent debater of those days was W. E. Spencer, who for sixteen years has been a clerk in the U. S. Senate and is now minute and journal clerk of that body. The degree of L. L. B. was conferred upon him by Columbian college, Washington, D. C. in June 1867. Parian J. Ball was captain Co., G. 31st Reg’t Wis. infantry, studied law, was district attorney of Dane Co., two terms. He then moved to Chicago, where he has since been practising. E. O. Hand is a prominent lawyer of the state, and has been County Judge of Racine, Co., thirteen years. P. J. Clawson was 1st Lieut., Wis., infantry. He is a lawyer at Monroe, Wis., and has been clerk of the court and district attorney of Green Co. James M. Bull who graduated from the law class in 1869, was initiated into the society the same year, went to the war and served as Lieut. Colonel of the 5th Reg’t. Afterwards he went west and is now a clergyman at Minneapolis. He revisited the old hall last year and related to the modern Hesperians many an interesting incident of twenty-five years ago. In i860 four names now well known to the people of Wisconsin were added to the society’s roll: J. L. High, J. C. Spooner, W. 1. Wallace, and E. D. Coe. J. L. High's law publications occupy a place among the works of the foremost law-writers. John C. Spooner whose society work gave promise of his later success, left the University in 1864, in time to take part in the last struggle of the war. He marched forth as captain of Co., A, of the 50th Reg’t. After the war he pursued the study of law, and after fifteen years of active practice, he was chosen in January 1885, to the U. S. senate of which body he is now the youngest member. During the days when Mr. Spooner was in society, the political agitation was as lively among the boys as among the soldiers at Camp Randall.90 THE TR0CH0S. What inspirations for the young orators and debaters as from the society hall, they looked over the tented field of Camp Randall. Away went the regiments and many a student was in them, leaving behind his ambitious classmates to fight out with logic and with eloquence, the battles for which they had enlisted with the sword. “In the presidential canvass, a large majority supported the Lincoln and Hamlin ticket,” writes Mr. Coe, “a few were for Douglas, two or three for Breckenridge, and one supporter of the Bill Everet ticket. On the ninth of September, i860, was held the wildest political meeting that Madison ever saw, and the University boys turned out and were wild with enthusiasm.” Ilenrv Vilas and Levi Vilas were both dangerous antagonists in debate on account of their clear logical arguments. I. N. Stewart and G. W. Allen were also effective debaters, the latter being a most fiery speaker. These gentlemen generally defended the Democratic party, while the Republicans found champions in F. L. Ball, P. J. Clawson, W. E. Spencer and John C. Spooner. “Ball was genteel, affable, and somewhat reserved,” says Mr. Coe, “he was liked very much and had good claims to the oratorical championship of the society. Yet in my heart, I believe, as most of the boys did, that the little pale faced thin-bodied John Spooner, was the best debater in the society. He would stand facing and watching the jury, using only one gesture, that of bringing the open right hand down in an emphatic rythmical way upon the palm of his left. Edwin Marsh, sustained the Hesperian reputation for loyalty as 1st Lieut., Co., K, 29th Reg't. S. S. Rock wood aided the cause as 2nd Lieut., Co., E., 13th Reg’t. Frederick Scheiber, an active Hesperian in those days, was sent to the legislature from Milwaukee, in 1883, Mr. Coe, in 1878-79, and was chosen chief clerk of the assembly in 1882, 1885, and 1887, and has been president of the Wisconsin Press Association. W. I. Wallace is a circuit judge in Missouri. After the war lively times were seen in the society. TheHESPERIA. 91 active members of those times were: Frank E. Parkinson, who was the parliamentarian of his day; H. W. Chynoweth, assistant attorney general of Wisconsin for four years; L. J. Rusk, now at Chippewa Falls and a member of the State Board of law examiners; B. W. Jones, Prosessor of law in the university, and member of congress in 1883-85; George W. Raymer, regent of the university and editor of the Madison Democrat, D. B. Frankenburger, Professor of Rhetoric and Oratory in the university; L. W. Colby, who is Col., 1 st Reg’t., Neb., N. G., and has been State Senator two terms and is now practising law at Beatrice, Neb.; II. S. Bassett, now a County Judge in Minnesota; Clark A. Smith, a District Judge in Kansas; L. B. Sale, who has been a University regent and is now practicing law with Chas. E. Vrooman, also a Hesperian, at Green Bay; Vrooman, has been district attorney of Brown Co., for several terms, and R. C. Orr, who for six years was district attorney of Grant Co. The first joint debate between Hesperia and Athena took place in 1867. Five out of the six champions were ministers and the sixth was Hon. B. W. Jones. Hesperia’s team was I. S. Leavitt, F. S. Stein and B. W. Jones. Athena sent Wm. Damon, James Turner and Wm. Huntington. It resulted in a victory for Hesperia. It was held in the old chapel, but afterwards many of the entertainments were held down town in the city Hall or at the Congregational church. The junior exhibitions of those times consisted of three twenty minute orations from three Ilesperians and three from Atheneans, an essay or poem, and a toast. Professor Frankenburger read the first poem.. The work on joint debates was not committed but delivered extemporaneously. Public interest has always run high at joint debates. An active rivalry has existed between Hesperia and Athena from their earliest history. In conclusion; it may seem that we have given the history of men, but Hesperia’s motto is suggestive of men. The want of space has compelled us to leave unmentioned many92 THE TROCHOS. worthy names and deeds. Seven hundred and eighty persons have shared her benefits. The debate of 1884, was perhaps the most hotly contested one in the entire list of the society. She has a fine list of alumni, but many of her more recent names are on the road to fame.HESPERIA. 93 members, W. 8. Buckley. O. H. Ecke. L. W. Jacobs. E. Keller. J. E. McConnell W. E. Black. Geo.

Every alternate Friday evening the meetings are held in the chapel at Ladies’ Hall. The regular programme consists of music, oration, declamation, debate and essays. Every member has ample opportunity for excellent drill in these various exercises. In the winter term the society holds its open session. This serves as an intellectual stimulus and furnishes a fair criterion of the work of the society. In the latter part of the winter term the society banquet promotes sociability among its members.

Its birthplace has not been claimed by seven cities and we hope that it will be a long time before its bones (jaw-bones) lie in a like number of resting-places. The Historians agree that the Adelphian Society was formed by a coalition of the members of the Linonian and Calliopean societies in the South Chapel, April 29th, 1881. A room was at once secured in the Capitol and here for two years the society held its weekly meetings. The attractions and distractions of the city, however, proved detrimental to efficient literary work, and in the spring of 1883, the society was removed to its present quarters in University Hall. Here it came into active competition with the other societies, and although they were so much older, richer and larger, yet Adelphia has become their acknowledged peer. Its membership has always been small, both from lack of room and from its belief that best results are obtained by a small but select membership. It has no difficulty in keeping up its high literary standard, but does have difficulty in keeping its portable property from its rapacious neighbors. Adelphia does not point to a long list of glorious deeds. Dating only from ’81, its members have not had time to get into Congress yet, in fact, the members of Adelphia have always had good reputations. Unlike Athena and Hesperia none of its members were engaged in building up the world, but have taken an active part in demolishing the fence which those societies have been building around it. Owing to its smallness it has made no show in public exercises. For the same reason it has appointed no joint debaters “ to ward off the attacks of the debaters of— ”, but the treasurer has purchased a shot gun for the censor and if any dead brick-a-brac hunters, who have been carrying off its antique furniture are found, the coroner will know the cause of decease and need not disfigure the corpse by sitting on it. —HHHHflHHI ■MMHH waamm 102 m THE TR0CH0S.

It must be apparent to every one who intends to enter a professional or a business life, in our growing west, that their success will in a large measure depend upon their ability to communicate readily with all the elements of our population. To a few Enterprising spirits, seeing clearly the great influence exerted by the German language in the life of our commonwealth and the consequent advantage of a mastery of so important an element, are we indebted for the organization of the Bildungs Verein, which was perfected November 8th, 1881. Its life in the university has been a quiet one, and its success is attested only by its present flourishing condition and the numerous expressions of gratitude received from alumni for its beneficial influence upon them in days past. By means of essays, declamations, debates etc., we hope to obtain a familiarity with the German language which will enable us to make it of practical use later in life. Besides, however, securing thus all the advantages of a debating society, skill in argumentation and parliamentary practice, we have here opened to us all the rich stores of German literature. We here begin to feel more deeply the influence of Schiller, Goethe, Uhland, whose acquaintance we made in the classroom. In this respect we are especially indebted to Prof. Rosenstergel, who very frequently delivers lectures before the society upon current topics in German literature. The society has also during the past two years held frequent public sessions at which essays and declamations upon the life and works of a particular author were presented. Our strength has never consisted in numbers but in the active spirit of our members bent upon the execution of a useful purpose. Seeing before us no cause, therefore, for the diminution of our labors, and hoping that our prosperity in the future may in every way equal that of the past, we extend a greeting to all the friends of our society.104 THE TROCHOS.

Nora Samlag, the Scandinavian Literary Society of the University was organized in October, 1883, and with the exception of a very short time, it has ever since maintained a prosperous activity. The chief object in establishing the society was to supplement the work of the Scandinavian department of the University by affording its members an opportunity to acquire a more practical knowledge of the Scandinavian languages than can be obtained ordinarily in the class-room. The society meets every alternate Saturday afternoon. The exercises consist of discussions, orations, essays and readings. During the present year the principal work of the society has been a study of the lives and works of the more prominent Scandinavian authors. The lively interest manifested in the work of the society is proof of the growing popularity of these Northern languages at the University. Nor is it surprising that this should be so. The practical value of a knowledge of these languages is at once apparent; yet we believe that the rich field of history and literature to which such a knowledge opens the way is more important, and should alone commend their study to a large number of American students. Scandinavia, although limited in natural advantages, nevertheless possesses a literature scarcely inferior to that of more favored nations. Says William Archer in the September No., of the Fortnightly Review, for 1885: “Those who take the trouble to acquire a knowledge of the Norse language will find it the key to a very interesting social life and a literature of quite extraordinary vigor, charm and open-eyed modernness.” The society is greatly indebted to Mr. Olson for his able and efficient work in his department upon which the success of the society largely depends, and for the interest and active part he has taken in the work of the society.

The ninth of September in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and eighty six, found some two score of new students in and about the corridors of the capitol, anxously looking for the law school room. Finally some one struck the scent and we all followed it up a dark pair of stairs into what is described in the catalogue as “ an elegant and commodious apartment set apart in the capitol for the use of the law school.” Here the Dean of the law faculty was waiting to greet the new students and speed them on their course with some timely words of advice and encouragement. After he had talked fifteen minutes, Biltcliffe opened a window. At the expiration of a half an hour when each new member was beginning to regard his fellow with suspicion Biltcliffe opened another window, and a senior who had dropped in softly murmured, “You may break, you may shatter the vase if you will. But the scent of the roses will cling to it still." In the course of his remarks the Dean said that a good law student should study half the day and talk the rest of the day. The latter part of this injunction some of the students have since obeyed with remarkable and painful assiduity. The personell of the law school comprised two doctors, a minister and two ladies “mater pulchra jilia pule trior.” The latter addition to the class set many of its members hard at work on the subject of attachments while others like the famous Mr. Guppy, were soon ready to file a declaration. The school soon settled down to work. Wednesday the fifteenth of September was a day of fate long remembered by the seniors. They had met for Federal Proceedings when “Spartacus, rising in the midst of that grim assemblage, thus addressed them: Ye call me chief. You will study the United States Constitution and all the constitutions of the several states. Read carefully Bump, Curtiss and Desty. Look over r116 THE TROCHOS all the decisions that ever have been made on this subject. Consult the German, French and English authorities and in your leisure you will find some interesting and well-preserved cases in China.5’ After Biltcliffe had opened the window and picked up those who had swooned, one student faintly gasped, “Is that this terms work?” “ Oh no,” said his Highness blandly smiling, “that is for next week, by that time I will have more leisure and can outline your work.” As the class sadly and solemnly blew out, one member was heard to say, “ this may make votes in the law class but it will not make students.” Occasionally the routine work was relieved by a flash as when the gentlemen in the front seat gravely asked the Professor in Real Property “if a tenantcy for life would hold over?” The history of the year is incomplete without some reference to the examination in common law pleading. The Junior Class having followed those mythical persons, John Doe and Richard Roe in their mad career through the several courts was finally ready for examination; some of the members were a little doubtful about their ability to pass, therefore they determined to secure the paper beforehand; accordingly they invoked the assistance of a tobacconist, one Damm, a name which the aforesaid students probably forcibly mentioned many times during the subsequent examinations. John secured a set of questions the nature of which can be inferred from the following: “ What is the rule of pleading in regard to the geo- graphical divisions of the world?” As to the result of the examinations history is silent. With the close of the fall term the class passed through the mysteries of uses and remainders and out from the shadows of Federal Proceedings. Here the Trochos will leave them wishing them bon voyage—a sunny office and a line of clients as long as those in a barbar shop on a Sunday. May they give dignity to the ermine, eloquence to the foruum, honesty and integrity to every sphere of life.DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 117 DEPARTMENT OF LAW. SENIOR CLASS. Clarence D. Allen, Madison. John P.

RYAN SOCIETY. 119 HISTORY, On the evening of Oct. 16th, 1883, a special meeting of the law class, called for the purpose of adopting a Constitution and By-Laws, the Edward G. Ryan Society was first organized. It was thus named in honor of the late Chief Justice of Wisconsin, Edward G. Ryan. The objects of the society may be gathered from the preamble of its constitution which is in the following terms: “We the undersigned, appreciating the advantages to be derived from exercise in debate and parliamentary practice, do hereby organize ourselves into an association for such purposes.” Although, in accordance with this preamble, the debate is made the leading feature of each programme, under the order of “special exercises,” essays, orations, impromptu speeches, and music, are added with evident advantage. All the literary exercises are subjected to the criticism of a member, previously appointed by the president. The officers of the Society are a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Sergeant-at-arms. Upon entering office they are required to take an oath for the faithful performance of their respective duties. On the 15th of May, 1886, the Society was incorporated (without capital stock) under Chap. 86 of the Rev. Statutes of Wisconsin, admitting to membership all students of the College of Law. The Ryan meets regularly every Friday evening in the lecture room in the Capitol. Its meetings thus far have been well attended, and have shown great interest and faithful work. Owing to the large increase in the membership of the Law School, the Society has grown proportionately and now numbers over sixty active members.  ■phi mm FOUNDED 1848.124 THE TROCHOS.

While the fury of war devastates two countries, subtle forces are at work changing the opinions of the hostile nations and soon the olive tree overshadows the ruins of destroyed cities. While the cyclone with irresistible force sweeps over the country, simultaneous agents in air and earth are reestablishing the equilibrium of the different regions. The battle is still raging between the spiritualists and those who assert their senses to be the only avenues of knowledge and yet will not trust even their testimony if it controverts preconceived doctrine. Yet although the masses are still surging to and fro in the vicissitudes of this battle, there are few souls gifted with higher sensibilities that respond readily to messages that lie outside the range of phenomenality. Silently thus, the occult forces demonstrate their existence and thus decide the battle. In the silence of night some of these chosen few sat in abstract contemplation of the social order existing in the Pleiads, measuring the flitting moments by the meteor trains which, passing their range of vision, would brighten momentarily the rosy illuminations of the Aurora. Suddenly they felt as if surrounded by unseen presences and to their minds came the revelation of a state of existence different from our ordinary one, and of beings living in spheres beyond in such state of existence under the direct guidance of the hidden noumena of the universe, moving there in rythm with the music of the spheres, which instead of being a philosophical phantasm, is there the first immediate effect of noumenal causes in the physical world. The Pleiadeans recognizing the exaltation of their condition have associated for the universal extension of their mysterious power, and the universal establishment of their own condition ■ITHE TROCHOS 148 of highest spirituality, transmitting it from soul to soul, from planet to planet, from sphere to sphere by means of the telepathic conductivity of the fourth dimension of space. Thus only those beings who previously already have attained to some measure of higher life, and have penetrated by their sensibilities into the fourth dimension will be reached by the messages and the divulging of their wisdom and power to minds unredeemed from debasing physicality is thus absolutely prevented and the truths of the higher life imbuing the K. Y. and cultivated by them are received thus only by those prepared for their reception. In accordance with revelations transmitted and received as above some chosen spirits became on our planet lirst elevated to the highest spirituality. Finding soon other souls of high pervasiveness they organized the first terrestrial representative of the institution for the culture of the highest truths ever accessible to human insight, establishing the Alpha Omega chapter of the K. Y. Whatever be the objection to secret organizations, it will be inapplicable to this, as the very object of the order restricts insight into its aims to those who have unconsciously embraced its principles. Publicity of its purposes would avail to others no more than light to blind. Therefore, we say to those yet roaming in the gloom of materiality: See the light and it will warm thee, Feel its rays and we’ll be with thee.KAPPA UPSILON. 149 MEMBERS. J. A. Buckley. J. O.

The Natural History Club of the University was founded in 1882 for the purpose of giving to the students of the University an opportunity for extended original and special research in the various departments of the natural sciences. Its meetings are held once in two weeks. The regular programme consists in the reading of papers on Botany, Zoology, Histology, Anatomy and Geology followed by discussions. During the Fall and Spring terms excursions are frequently made for the purpose of securing specimens. Besides the work done by the students the club frequently has lectures by the instructors and professors in the scientific departments. The club keeps the Journal of the Royal Society of Microscopy on file in the periodical alcove in the college library.I A Am .tmr ♦4 THE U. W. ASSOCIATION OF ENGINEERS. 153 THE U, W.

HISTORY. Through the efforts of the class of ’85, a society was formed, known as the Association of Engineers of ’85.” The object of the association was to supplement the work of the class room and create a deeper interest in engineering subjects. It was highly successful as far as the class of ’85 was concerned, but not meeting the demands of the entire engineering department, a new association was formed in 1886, open to all engineering students, which association is now an essential feature of the department. Monthly meetings are held, at which a regular programme, consisting of papers and discussions on engineering and mathematical subjects, is presented. The facilities for this original work are now excellent; the numerous engineering pamphlets, journals, and periodicals in the engineers reading room, furnishing the best and most recent data concerning plans, designs, and details of construction and operation of all the most important engineering works, structures, and machinery.THE CHEMICAL CLUB.

The Chemical Club was organized by the adoption of its constitution Oct. 7, 1886. The object of the club as stated in its constitution is: To broaden the knowledge of its mem- bers in chemistry and to increase their interest in that science, by reports on current chemistry pure and applied, as found in the various journals; by reports on scientific work done by its members, and by occasional lectures or essays on chemical subjects. The club will collect as opportunity arises materials for a chemical cabinet. The meetings of the club, which take place the first and third Thursdays of each month, have been very interesting well attended by the members. The sessions have been devoted for the most part to reports on subjects of general interest as taken from the current chemical journals. As general chemistry, organic and inorganic, agricultural, technical, metallurgical and mineral, medical and pharmaceutical chemistry are represented by different members who make them specialties, the variety of topics is considerable. The club is making a card catalogue of the principal articles in the lead-ing journals of the vatious branches of chemistry, which it is hoped will be valuable in time as a means of ready reference.MADISON CONTEMPORARY CLUB. 157 M ©I3©N @©NTEMP©RARY ©LUB. The club is formed to meet the wants of the young people of the city and students of the University. It is not organized for systematic study but for informal discussion and conversation upon contemporary and practical questions. All persons, both old and young are cordially invited to attend its meetings and any person may become a member on application. The club is divided into five sections as follows: Contem- pory History, Current Literature, Social Science, Modern Art, and Recent Discoveries. A leader is appointed for each section who has charge of the work in that department. At each meeting it is purposed to have reports by paper or otherwise upon two or more topics, to be followed by informal discussion. The club holds regular meetings in the parlor of the Unitarian church on alternate Wednesday evenings. The officers and leaders of sections are as follows: OFFICERS E. W. HELMS. - F. J. TURNER.

The aim of this association is to develope Christianity among the students of the University. To this end our test of membership is Christian character; we dictate to no one a definition of Christianity. Church membership is not required; experience has shown that membership in the association leads to church membership. It is co-educational; we believe that in religion, as in education, the two sexes should stand upon the same basis. The association has always been non-sectarian in its creed and practice. Our aim is Christian living, not theology; hence we welcome all Christian students without regard to church affiliations or theological beliefs. In addition to the regular work of the association, lectures for religious instruction are provided. There are frequent sociables during the year. Last year the association established a Sunday School in East Madison, a district remote from the city churches. This is supported wholly by the students, and has a regular attendance of over fifty. We believe that this effort to extend the Kingdom of Christ is productive of great good to both scholars and teachers.Y. M. C. AND Y. W. C.

In common with all other V. M. C. A. organizations it is founded upon a strictly evangelical basis, being in active connection with both the State and the National Y. M. C. A. Its purpose is “to promote growth in grace and Christian fellowship among its members, and aggressive Christian work, especially by and for students.” Any gentleman student who is a member in good standing of any evangelical church can, on reading and subscribing to the constitution, become an active member of the association. Any gentleman student of good moral character is eligible to associate membership. In the Spring of 1884 the association united with the University Christian Association’on an evangelical basis. In less than a year, however, in the interest of Christian Truth as understood by evangelical churches, the present Y. M. C. A. was reorganized, Jan. 15, 1885. Since then the association has steadily increased in power and usefulness, its success thus being demonstrated. Y. W. C, f . ! — The purpose of this association is the same as that of the Young Men’s Christian Association. It was organized in the Fall of 1884 with a charter membership of six and is in harmony with both the State and the National Y. W. C. A. Its success has been equalled only by that of the Y. M. C. A.

The University Channing Club was organized in the Fall of 1885, for the purpose of satisfying the religious wants of those students who felt the need of some organization where they could meet and discuss religious questions from a liberal standpoint, and thus afford to one another mutual religious helpfulness. The Club also forms a center for the cultivation of the social nature of its members, and for the distribution of religious literature among the students and alumni of the University. The meetings of the Club are held fortnightly in the parlor of the Unitarian church. Students of the University and members of the faculty are always welcome. During the current year the chief work of the Club consists in a study of New England religious life with special reference to the development of the present Unitarian faith. This work is supplemented by sociables and Sunday evening lectures Although the life of the Club has been short, its work has been productive of highly beneficial results. This is proved by its steady growth and by the deep interest manifested in its meetings. (n)162 THE TROCHOS. THE E@IS.

In the Spring of 1886 a number of students conceived the idea of forming a Boat Club Association. The scheme soon took a tangible form;—a grant of land for a building site on the lake shore of Lake Mendota opposite the lower campus was obtained from the Regents of the University; a stock company was incorporated and plans for a building adopted. UNIVERSITY BOAT CLUB. 179 The house was to have been put up last fall, but the Board of Directors did not possess sufficient means to erect a suitable building, so the matter was deferred until the Spring of 1887 in the hope that in the meantime financial aid might be obtained from the Regents and from private subscriptions. The plans adopted by the Directors for the Club’s house call for about $800. The building will consist of an upright fifty-eight feet long and twenty-eight feet deep, and two wings each sixteen feet long and twenty feet deep. The main part has two stories, the upper one of which will be used for carpenter and paint shops, and dressing rooms. The building will accommodate sixty-two boats and eight shells. The price of shares has been placed at ten dollars, each share entitling the holder to a place for a boat. An annual rental of three dollars for members of the faculty, and two dollars for students, will be charged to defray current expenses. The government of the association will consist of a board of live directors elected annually on the ninth Saturday of each spring term. The natural opportunities for boating at the University are unrivalled by those of any other college in the country; and it is to be hoped that this effort to secure permanent facilities for this healthful and enjoyable sport will meet with a hearty support. 180 THE TR0CH0S.

MILITARY Bf lLL. | A .1 unior, Hitting on tho stops of tlie Gymnasiam, soliloquizes. ] Here I’m Hitting sad and lonely, where of old the bugle’s blow Used to make us weary Sophomores, run and stand in double row; Now the memories crowd upon me of the days which then we know. Of our toilsome daily drilling, of inspection, of review. Here of old our marching columns, with a firm and steady tread, Slowly paced through this same doorway, with the Commandant ahead. In the fall and spring, tho campus was our daily drilling ground. And the lordly upper classmen used to laugh and stand around; But when chilling blasts of Boreas whistled through the naked trees, Here within this cold gymnasium, we were asked to drill and freeze. One cold evening twenty cadets, fearing frost bites and disease, Thinking all their action harmless, staid at home and took their ease; Then the commandant grown angry, hearing that a plot was formed, Made the other cadets tremble as around the “Gym,” he stormed. On the next day twenty students were suspended from the school For their mutinous intentions, and their disregard for rule; But the Commandant grew lenient when he found they meant no wrong. They returned but with a warning that they will remember long. Then again, I well remember how we came one winter’s night. When the sky above was cloudless and the stars were shining bright, Through that window there we entered, and we burst the armory door, Took the bands from off the rifles, threw the ramrods on the floor; Then we stealthily retreated with the bands all in a bag, Hid them near to Lake Mendota underneath a jutting crag. Vain the midnight expedition! Vain the taking of the bands! For we next had heavy muskets, fitted for Cyclopean handH. To the Adjutant, a package was delivered by express. That this package held the gun bands, was the universal guess; Now the Adjutant, delighted, tore the heavy box-lid loose, Then turned pale with consternation at the skeleton of a goose; Bold again, picks up the goose bones, thrusts them quickly in tho fire While the Commandant stands by him, and can scarce repress his ire. Ah to, I well remember how. another wintry night To the Commandant’s headquarters, we repaired without a light. From its haunts, his blue apparel through the pitchy darkness boro ■MILITARY DRILL. 191 To a place I dare not inentiou, where we left it on the door. Other memories crowd upon me, other scenes again I see. How they quickly flit before me! but while I ponder moments flee; They must vanish for the present; time and place do not inhere For such sordid recollections of the past eventful year. To the Gym. last night I wandered, and the Fresh, and Sophomore There were handling the same rifles, that we did a year before. Again the bugle sounded loudly, to the ranks the cadets rushed. Every sergeant shouting fiercely, till the noisy throng was hushed. Next, the roll call was in order, “Here” the answer one by one, From a “carry” to an “order” dropped successively each gun. 'Twas the Friday for inspection, and each officer with sword And with Lomiandrine helmets looked like some great ancient lord: Then there enters through the doorway, something wonderful to see. Smith, the Adjutant is coming, wrapped in all his dignity. Now he stops and calls “Attention,” cadets come to “order arms,” And he roads the orders gruffly, as one used to war’s alarms. How my pulses coursed and fluttered, as I stood thereon the floor Listening to the solfsamo chestnuts that T heard a year before. Now he read out the delinquents and offenses for the week, And among the various others was this pet ingenious freak; On the second of October, absent Donahoe from drill, Dirty shoes October second, and his gun not cleaned with skill. Andrew Alexander Bruce, dirty socks October third, Absent on the following day private West and private Bird. On the third Lieutenant Tibbits, had his board not neatly trimmed, And the lustre of Pier’s buckle was a trifle too much dimmed. And so the list continued, till at last there was an end. Then the adjutant oxhorted them their erring ways to mend. Next I heard him read the orders; “General orders No. f ” “All cadets in the Battalion who for offices would Rtrive” “Will be present on next Monday to receive a special drill,” “And three sergeants will bo taken from those having greatest skill.” “Recitation in the Tactics once a week at half-past four,” “The class in French will meet me daily, Room 1 », on the third floor.” “The next lesson will be pages twenty-two to forty-six,” “And the officers are cautioned, they must study their tactic .” “All cadets in the Battalion must have suits of navy blue.” “Each sleeve of blouse should have three buttons; let no cadet, have but two.” “On front of blouse five buttons not all gathered at the throat,” “Each three inches from another; do not have them more remote.” So the ordors wore continued, I am sure thoro wore a score. They reminded me of others I had heard a year before. Then I waudered on around them, taking in the whole affair And 1 found the old Battalion, had within it G(urious) Ware. There was sad degeneration, for one lordly officer,192 THE TROCHOS. E’on with shoulder straps and trappings, was none other than a Kerr; And I wondered if the Colonel was not merely bent on fun, When ho picked out for n captain that audacious baker’s Bunn. Again I thought the Colonel had become a husbandman; For I noticed on one corner a little bleating Lamb, And a Ramsay too I found there, as you would expect to hear But I couldn’t find exactly when they would be fit to Shear. When I’d gone a little farther, lo a uoisy Drake I found, And a full grown Hart stood quivering, as if ready for a bound. Then a long legged Bird I noticed and when I had reached the band Strange to say there stood a Dunke with an instrument in hand; But when I had wandered farther, terror did ray heart strings nibble. For a hideous form before me, was none other than the Dibble. Here the Junior from his musing was awakened by the fright, And the shadows gathering round him warned him of approaching night. Then his watch he quick consulted, found two fleeting hours had sped While he, sitting there and musing, had to all the world been dead. Homeward then his way he wended, vanishing into the night, And his weird untimely musing, faded with the fading light.CO £ h- CO f— CO (V' Z D • V1| 4..XKI • t r 333S 3.»2SS3S:533 nfl s JV , 23s aftv»«=i3 S3si5saasAs ;Ss55-4=5JUNIOR STATISTICS.

Had not. my heart Been in my mouth, tranced from pulsation It had sure beat quicker as I heard thy tread. But. as Prof. Williams says “I was not present.” But mark me; hast set a guard Within the Janus portals of the Gym? Friday. The watch is set with perfect care; Not Updograff himself had done it better. Patricius. He’d rather watch a sheep-fold then the Gym. But how about Lomia? Is his helmet safe? Friday. Aye, safer than a green condition card From theft, at any students vandal hand; Shrimski and Tibbitts pace about its walls Like inastifTs round St. Peter’s dome. Patricius. ’Tis well; the helmet’s safe enough Should not the siren tones of catgut Trance the warders from their duty. And Main Building? Will aught of hay Be strown upon its floors?200 THE TR0CH0S.

I appreciate the circumstances; I’ve often had enlargement of the heart Towards these same girls. And many times and oft They’ve nearly been my death— So much larger have they made my heart Than I myself did stretch it. Alas, poor Patrick! Prof. Kerr. Alas, poor Patrick; I knew him, Lucius, A fellow of infinite jest Of most excellent fancy; And doth he lie so low! Prof. Heritage, Requiescat in pace. Prof. Bull. 0, Good my Lord, no Latin.

His was a life of sorrow, tempered with a sunny wit; But when he spoko his orders E’en the Freshmen quaked, fixed in his shoes, He guarded well the dormitory boys And—to my knowledge—ne’er a plenum was. His spectacles did ever frankly gaze in face of friend or foe. Alas! that such a life should thus Be blighted in its bloom. He died —As he most wished—in action. And now at peace with all the world he sleeps. So let him rest. And some kind providence Send us class spirit with the least o’ fence.

It was with the greatest reluctance that the author yielded to the stern literary necessity of killing off Patricias; but he saw that either the play or Patricius must die. The murderer, therefore, plead guilty; but claims indulgence, since, like Bottom, when he roars beneath the lion’s skin, he roars as gently as is consistent with the nature of tragedy.202 THE TR0CH0S.

All members were present save Mr. Cowdery and Miss Farnsworth. The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and approved. Chairman Reid.—“ The principal business of this afternoon's meeting is to decide upon a funny cut to represent the Junior Class in the Trochos. I hope the Board will be as expeditious as possible, as I have an appointment for debate with Prof. Williams, on the subject of fore-ordination and freewill, and I want to get over it as soon as possible.” Mr. ’Johnson.—(As effluviously previous as usual.) “ Mis- tah Chahman, my idea of an adequate representation of the Junior Class is a delineation of a very wise young man, a bright and shining light, with a plug hat and prince Albert coat. In fact, let him be a model man in every respect, if possible, a member of the V. M. C. A.” Mr. Roeseler.—(Member of the U. C. A.) “ Dat vood pe von funny cut. I don’d dinks I can make von cut als vie dat, vonce alreddy again.” Mr. Cutler.—( With a great amount of retiring chin and wind-mill gestures.) “I think Mr. Johnson's idea absurd for two reasons, first, if it were none other than absurd, it would certainly be absurd, and second, if it is absurd, it is nothing other than absurd, and therefore, according to the doctrine of Metempsychosis, it is absurd. Furthermore, Mr. Johnson, you216 THE TROCHOS. don’t resemble that description nearly as accurately as you think you do.” This was received with great laughter on the part of Mr. Cutler, during which Mr. Johnson falls into a state of incipient latescence and irrecoverable latency. Mr. Cowdcry.—{Entering hastily, Miss Farnsworth following breathlessly,') “I—I, excuse my tardiness, I have been attending on my Sheboygan County claim.” Mr, Winegar,—(Starting up hurriedly,) “What’s the matter with it ? 1 have one adjoining yours.” Mr. Beglinger.—( Whispering to Miss Robin son.) “Does he refer to a tree claim.” Miss Robinson.—“No, a she claim.

Mr. Johnson.—{Sidling over toward the “ co-eds T) “Don’t you think the light is better here, Miss Robinson.” Miss Robinson.—{Glancing at his cerebral integument.) “ Yes, I think it is.” Mr. Cutler.—“ It seems to me, Mr. Chairman, that we have gotten a little off the track, I move you that we switch on again.” Miss Farnsworth.—{nervously.) “I second the motion.” The Chairman.—“You have heard the motion, all favoring it, say ‘Aye,’ opposed, ‘no.’” All.—“Aye.”TROCHOS BOARD MEETING. 2l7 The Chairman,—“The “Ayes” have it and we are switched.” Mr, Cowdery.—“I’ll be switched if I don't want to go home.” By general consent this was allowed to go on the minutes as Mr. Cowdery’s standard weakly pun. The chair, noticing the general restlessness of the members, said that a motion to adjourn would be in order. Mr, Van Orntim,—“ I move that this matter of a cut be referred to a committee of four members of the faculty and one student in the agricultural department.” The motion was seconded and carried.
