THE PRISM UNIVERSITY OF MAINE CLASS OF 1908 . p: •- i [ LU. 3. CLU MHUt - . ;. -- g Greeting OR the Junior Class of the University of Maine, its Board of Editors presents this, the 1908 Prism, to the univer- sity, hoping that while its all too apparent and numer- ous flaws may be overlooked, it may succeed in casting on the screen of its pages some suggestion of the variegated spectrum of college life during the past year at Maine. If in the portrayal of this spectrum some of the colors seem harsh and glaring to a few, we ask them to take it all in good part, remembering that in most cases the unharmonious ra} s are more evanescent than the humorous truths which they present for your amusement. Sincere thanks are extended to every person who has in any way whatsoever aided in the compilation of this volume. Finally, if through this Prism any of that charm and glamour which really surrounds student life at Maine has been pictured, then be it ever so poor, the book does not exist in vain. ®n Sr. (Srnriir iEmnnj iFrllouiB mini, against yrrat nliatarlra. bu ahrrr fnrrr nf rharartrr aun rnnarirntnuta runrauur fur tljr lirttrrmrut nf mir Alma iflatrr. has uunt Ij ta roan Into thr hrarta nf thr atunrnt hnntj ann has nlarrn tljr llniurrsitH, nf iWatnr upon a rnllrytatr atanniitn, far hnihrr than it haa rnrr brfnrr nrruniri). this boob ia gratefully fcrniratrii. DR. GEORGE EMORY FELLOWS EORGE EMORY FELLOWS, President of the University of Maine, was born at Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, June 9, 1858. He attended for a time the Academy of Northwestern University ; graduated later at Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin, in 1879 ; studied at the University of Munich, 1888-89, and at the University of Berne, I 890, where he took the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. He was granted the honorary degree of LL.D. by Bowdoin Col- lege, 1902, and that of L.H.D. by Lawrence University in the same year. He married in 1 88 1 , Lucia Russell, of Fond-du-Lac, Wisconsin. He taught for ten years in various high schools, among others at Appleton, Wisconsin, New Orleans, Louisiana and Aurora, Illinois. He was Professor of European History at Indiana University from 1891 to 1895 ; Assistant Professor of History in the University of Chicago, 1895-1902; President of the University of Maine since 1 902 ; member of the American Historical Association of the New Orleans Academy of Science and various educational societies ; has been secretary and treasurer of the National Association of State Universities for some years. Aside from many articles in various magazines, he is the author of Outlines of the Sixteenth Century, published in 1895, and of Recent European History, published in 1902. Such is the brief memorandum of the important academic events in the life of President Fellows. Such a sketch, of course, gives no indication of the character of the man, or of the qualities which have made him a successful leader in his day and generation. I have had the pleasure of knowing President Fellows for more than fifteen years, and have watched his work with increasing admiration, and I may add, pride. I was associated with him for a time at the University of Chicago, and had an opportunity to see the manifestation of the qualities which have placed him in his present high position. But after all a man ' s real character is deter- mined before he is thirty years of age, about which time I made his acquaintance, and the testimony of other people who knew him as a boy and young man is even more significant than anything which I might say. He was only twenty-one, according to the account which one of his early friends gives me, when he graduated at Lawrence University. A man sitting in the audience on the com- mencement occasion, who was agent and trustee, urged him to become principal of Eau Claire 10 THE PRISM 1908 Seminary, Wisconsin, which position he held for one year. In this position he showed the qualities which have ripened with the years and which explain his success. Dr. O. A. Chap- pell of F.lgin, Illinois, in a most interesting letter to me says that " the position was one of unusual difficulty, but Dr. Fellows was master of it from the beginning. His enthusiasm was boundless and he imparted it to us all in play and work alike. The influence of such a per- sonality is beyond compare. I consider myself very fortunate to have been one of his pupils. " Another of his former pupils at Eau Claire, now Assistant General Superintendent of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway Company, says that " his pupils in the Eau Claire Semi- nary were over-grown Wisconsin forest products which we sometimes called Indians, and if he had gone at us wrong we would have put him out of business in the twinkling of an eye, but he came at us right, and such hold did he get on the hearts of the fellows that unconsciously there was drilled into our retentive and rebellious minds knowledge which helped us in our future life and principles for manhood which have stood by us ever since. President Fellows is one of the strong nails which hold the universe together and make for this country better citizens than any other nation of the globe possesses. " A year ' s work in the active pastorate in small Wisconsin towns gave him a touch with certain very important aspects of life, and an experience which has proved of great value to him. Two years he spent as Vice Principal of the Ryan High School in Appleton, Wiscon- sin, and one of his old pupils. Dr. Sanborn, writes me his recollection of President Fellows as " a man of very high ideals, and much concerned about the mental and moral welfare of his students. His departure from the school was felt as a personal loss, and all of us have watched his climb to eminence in the educational world with great satisfaction. " The next three years he spent as instructor in the Central High School of New Orleans, Louisiana. One of his friends during that period touches upon a very important quality which explains much of President Fellows ' after success. He writes, " One of President Fellows ' characteristics which endears him to his friends, as you know, is his generous appreciation of the work of others. This quality was manifest from the first. He was a tried optimist and helpful friend, and whoever portrays his character must dwell with appreciation on his unfail- ing energy, his courageous optimism, and his militant wrath at the shadow or substance of injustice. " President Fellows left New Orleans High School in 1 888 to take up his studies in Europe. When he returned, after a brief period in the high school at Aurora, Illinois, he was called to Indiana University. From this time his career is a matter of history, known to everyone. The space assigned for this brief biographical notice is perhaps already overrun, and I can only add one word to the effect that President Fellows has been one of the strongest influences for good in the National Association of State University Presidents. In fact the 1908 THE PRISM 11 association was on the verge of expiring when he became secretary, and he instilled into it new life. The people of Maine, the Faculties of the University of Maine, and the students of the institution present and prospective, are to be congratulated that the trustees of the university were wise enough to call to its head a man with such broad training and outlook, and the alumni of the university and the citizens of the state can do no wiser thing than uphold his hands and follow his advice as he unfolds and develops his statesman-like projects.

SENIOR HISTORY HE history of the Seniors is best and briefest told by relating in a straightforward manner, the great and glorious deeds of the class of 1907, a class which has many a time " wept because there were no more worlds to conquer. " Our entrance into this institution was humble. We thought it best to begin that way, and we were forcibly aided in this thought by a crowd of uncivilized savages, whom we recognized with difficulty as Sopho- mores. We received the usual course of instruction at their hands, and that first year we kept them pretty fairly busy keeping us in the straight and narrow path. We did not let them have things all their own way, and the scrap that followed our victory over them in basketball, when we advertised the score in chapel, will go down to posterity as one of the fiercest battles the University of Maine has ever seen. As Sophomores, we took the reins into our own hands and pointed out a rigorous course for the Freshmen to follow. And they followed it. By the fre- quent application of the bed slat and tin- water cure, we were enabled to keep them under our protecting wing, so that no unnecessar} harm came to the child- ren. We had by this time developed athletes among our number, whose exploits were a credit to themselves and to their Alma Mater. l ' onto Wymaii had already broken the college record in the quarter mile. Spider St. Onge had shown himself to be a capable athlete. Ray Quint had entered the ranks of 44 THEPRISM 1908 football and baseball, while such nun as Dick Matheas, Bill Stone, Dick Talbot, Porter Swift and others were earning names for themselves on the gridiron. We also showed up the usual number of curiosities. General Hooper got into the habit of thundering down the Campus with his military footfall, awaken- ing the virgin echoes of the forest, taking charge of the college work (in his mind) with all the coolness of a natural leader. Pomp Merrill was beginning to be a conspicuous figure about the Campus, and Frank Alton really enjoyed a smoke now and then. So we ended our Sophomore year profitably, and started upon our Junior year. We went about our work now with the air of persons long accustomed to it, and thought it was an insult if the faculty called us up to give us a warning about our work. It was in this year that we inaugurated the nominating com- mittee, — an idea that was successfully carried out — and is now being followed with good results by other classes. It was during this year, too, that we got our Prism out on time, for the first time, we think, in the history of the institu- tion. Near the end of our Junior year, some of our men aided materially in the winning of the Maine Intercollegiate Athletic Association Meet at Lewiston. Wyman, St. Onge, Clayton and others did themselves proud that day, and brought glory to their college in a substantial way. Now we are Seniors, looking gravely on at the pranks of the younger undergraduates, and wondering what will happen to us when we get out into the cold world. Already we have added another achievement to our list in the form of a Senior Honorary Society which some of our members organized, com- posed of the eleven best men in the Senior class. Did we blow up " 64? " We don ' t dare to say. Arad Barrows can " sing a little tenor, also a little baritone, also a little bass. " Squab Martin talks as much as ever. Tom Mallov has reformed and even attends chapel now and then. As for the rest, wherever we go, and what- ever this world has to offer, we shall always do our best to further the interests of our Alma Mater. SENIOR COLLEGE HONORS.

JUNIOR HISTORY HE room is dimly lighted by a student lamp, whose green shade illumines the old familiar surroundings with a ghoulish gloom and throws uncanny shadows on the walls. Over the bright circle of light bends a student, as " Over his pen the musing calculist. Beginning doubtfully and far away, First lets his ideas wander where they list And draws a curve from dreamland for his play. " Hush! He is mumbling to himself: ■ «d ' y_ .It cw (smwt - :%) -cos«wt) § " Yes, Scissors says that is ' foohl seemplah and moah kommpackt ' than any acceleration we have had since our Freshman year — our Freshman year — what acceleration did we have in our Freshman year — O, Stub Wildes and his wild and wooly gang furnished most of it then. What was the magnitude of the force of Fat Lanpher in the night-shirt parade ; F= ma, mass times acceler- ation, and they both approach infinity. He must have had considerable force that night. That was the first time the fiendish yell of the razoo reached our ears. How many times it echoed through the chilly night before the year was gone. Then there was the flag scrap for which we fought in vain ; the base- ball games all won by ' oS ; the peanut scrap at which ' 07 bought the peanuts 60 THEPRISM 1908 for us ; the impromptu chapel rush at which we tried our best to stave up the chapel so that we could be excused from the arduous duty of attending ; the splendours of our Freshman function, the Military Ball ; the indoor Meet at which ' 08 gained second place ; and the Sophomore Hop at which we furnished a short period of darkness to give variety to the festivities of the frivoling Soph- omores. Then there was the Freshman Banquet, when Dan Chase and the ban- quet committee showed that they knew the train schedules to Ellsworth better than they did their trig final next day. After the Easter recess came what Paddy Huddilstone called the " fastest day " he ever lived, when everyone attended chapel in the square in Orono and a run on the ticket office of the Ban- gor Theatre followed in the afternoon. Then with the last scrap in the historic Frog Pond, ' 07 and ' 08 buried the paddle. " But it was quickly dug up again under the leadership of " Pa " Hanscom, and then it was we who sent the Freshmen down the yelling line in the old, familiar way, but we laid it on harder when they tried to give us raw peanuts. Freshman trick ! There was that hundred to one shot on ' 09, the Sophomore — Freshman football game. But such is the uncertainty of life. There was the great game of the " beef trust " on Whittier Field with a touchdown in the first five minutes, and th e championship. There was Henry Miner, Big Smith, Claude Meserve and Ikey Mitchell with the laurels of football, track and tennis hanging over their heads ; and our " Hop, " with its elaborate electrical display; and our spring razoo which turned into a rush with twice as many Freshmen as Sophomores ; and the endless round of plugging, loafing, smoking and " chewing the rag " which brought ' 08 around to her Junior year; and there was Porter Swift ' s impassioned plea for the Y. M. C. A. and — Wow! Out of the pages of the book leaps a full grown sine curve, seizes the man by his flow- ing beard and leads him rapidly back — back — back — to Bal — no — to earth and a realization of the fact that he has been going through the motions of plugging for an hour without knowing- it. JUNIOR HONORS Bean, Anna Coffin, A 2, Haverhill, Mass. Haverhill High School. Scientiiic Entered Junior Year from Simmons College. This Co-ed ' s fondest ambition is to become a member of the Massa- chusetts Club. At present, however, she is obliged to be content with serving as one of the two active members of the " Woman ' s Auxiliary. " Bethel Civil Engineering Bean, Chester Howe, I H K, Gould ' s Academy. ' Varsity Track (2). Chester is somewhat of a plugger. They even say at the Hall that he lets plugging interfere with his regular college course. Neverthe- less, he is well liked l v those who know him best. 62 THE PRISM 1908 Beedle, Arthur Lawrence, " Bug, " South Gardiner Gardiner High School. Electrical Engineering Bug started in with ' 07, but, with the phenomenal sagacity often displayed by those taking the " man ' s course, " he dropped back a class and added to the ranks of ' oS. As the electrician his most arduous duty this year has been in reading the meter at the coop ; this, being a very delicate instrument, required constant care and attention and seemed to give Bug a great deal of trouble. Blair, Arthur Adolphus, B. D., Oldtown Entered Sophomore Year from Tufts Theological School. Classical Chaplain, Ivy Day (3). ( mt of respect for members of the cloth we can ' t roast him, although there is a big temptation t get back on him for that long sermon which he preached Sunday morning.

Chemical Manager Class Basketball (1) ; Class Football (2) ; Glee Club (1), - . 3); Leader Glee Club (3); Assistant Leader Glee Club i 2 ; College Choir (2), (3); Class Vice President - ■ Buster would like tn have you know that there is no place on earth like Ii-o-v-e-r. Maine. Even though he has, since tntering college, bi ' it as far away from hi beloved village as Boston he has not changed his ideas in the least, lie has a must marked tendency to fall in love with every pretty face be meets, since his Freshman cut him out on the " only girl 1 ' , C. Boyle (no middle initial we would have you understand) has i apidlj gone to the bad. 1908 THE PRISM 63 Oldtown Classical Committee ( ' : I ; Junior Brown, Sarah Ellen, A 2, Oldtown High School. Prism (3); Class Nominating Promenade Committee (3). Sarah really doesn ' t want to say it, but she thinks Professor Lentz is a tease and too inquisitive for anything. Now will you be good. Professor ? Brownell, Chester Arthur, " Ole Bull, " © E, Newport, R. I. Rogers High School. Civil Engineering Sophomore Prize Declamations ; Aid Junior Promenade. About once in so often Ole has one of his " spells, " when in a wild flight of imagination he believes he is the reincarnation of his famous namesake. At these times his old fiddle will shriek and moan for hours at a time ; and when it is all over Ole is a nervous and physical wreck. Between times Ole studies industriously, and recuperates on a corn-cob that has broken all existing strength records. Chase, Daniel, " Dan, " 2 A E, Baring Hebron Academy. Classical Class Basketball (1), (2); Class Football (2); Class Base- ball (1), (2); ' Varsity Football (2); ' Varsity Baseball (1), (2); Class President (1); Vice President Y. M. C. A.

After Dan ' s visits to Hebron he can be seen going around the campus with a far-away look on his face while he constantly hums to himself the tune " Alice, where art thou. " This may account for his inability to rise early enough to don a collar and necktie before presenting himself to Scissors iu the morning, 64 THE PRISM 1908 Cobb, William Alfred. " Bill, ' " K 2, Auburn Edward Little High School. Civil Engineering Class Vice President (1) ; Secretary- Treasurer Twin City Club (2); Class Track Team (1), (2); ' Varsity Track Team (2). Bill votes the Republican ticket, though he is no relation to the Governor. He is rather a quiet chap, in fact a little too glum at limes for companion ' s sake. We don ' t know hether this is due to Hill ' s brooding over the large number of ties between the campus and Old Town, or to other causes. Coleman, Rverett Clinton, " Coley, " fi A Y, Roxbury, Mass. Roxbury High School. Chemical Mandolin Club (2); Class Nominating Committee (2); Sergeant (2) ; First Lieutenant (3). Coley is a fellow who knows slightly more than appearances would seem to indicate. He is noted for the number and variety of his pipes which are always on exhibition for the benefit of admiring fresh- men. Collins, Bernard Ira, " Pat, " Haverhill, Mass. Haverhill High School. Civil Engineering Sergeant Major (2) ; First Lieutenant and Adjutant (3); Secretary and Treasurer Massachusetts Club (3) ; Aid Junior Promenade. A semi-sagacious look and a ready assurance have won for this man an exaggerated reputation. As a freshman he was the Grand Exalted Rague Choor of the W. C. T. t " . Ruff Haus Gangue which died a sad and untimely death after three weeks of " strenuosity. " 1908 THE PRISM 65 Cram, Edward Winslow, " Gus, " K 2, Portland Portland High School. Civics Manager Class Track Team (1); Campus Board (1), (2) ; Executive Committee Athletic Association (3). Nobody knows what Gussie intends to be. We all know that he isn ' t studying for anything ' . But whether he goes into farming:, or engi- neering, or the ministry, one thing is pretty certain — he will " get there. ' ' Crowell, Philip Holmes, l ' P. H., Orono Hi h School. A T O, Bangor Civil Engineering The trip Phil took into the Canadian wilds last summer has fur- nished a naturally inventive mind with material for some of the most fluent prevarications ever released into the atmosphere of our rigid climate. If we believed one-half he says we should live in an altogether different world. As some one has said, " P. H. " is true to his name for he certainly can Crow well. Cummings, Robert Lincoln, ( Munchie, 1 ' $TA, Gorham Gorham High School. Electrical Engineering Class Football (2). Munchie is such a nice boy we hate to say anything against him. He isn ' t much for good looks hut to hear him talk yon would think he had broken all the hearts in Gorham. 66 THE PRISM 1908 Dixon, Leon Snell, " Dick, " 2 X, Orono Orono High School. Civil Engineering CI.. .- Baseball l ' . Three years of university life have given Dick a running start on the downward road to ruin. He now sometimes lets as many as two nights a week go without plugging and has become so depraved that on rare occasions he will sit up as late as ten o ' clock at night eating peanuts. It is a question whether he will weather this fast life long enough to get his B. S. Dow, Owen Oscar, " Hiram, " t T A, Hiram Fryebun; Academy. Scientific Class Baseball (1), (2); ' Varsity Baseball (2). Hiram is so broken tip over the fact that hi; guardian. Mr. Rogers, is no longer his instructor, that we hesitate to inflict any further punishment. We will say that he carries the same old foolish grin to hide his sorrow. Draper, Clifford Lester, ® E, Stoneliam, Mass. Stoneham High School. Electrical Engineering Aid Sophomore Hop ; Class Relay Team (1), (2) ; Junior Week Committee (3). As we sit and watch Drape taking chapel attendance each morning we often wonder what is going on behind that inscrutable face. Drape intends to be a " fizzissist " and is taking several very strenuous courses to that end under Billie Ham. 1908 THE PRISM 67 Drew, Pierce Allen, B ® II, Orono Oakland High School, Oakland, Cal. Hiology Class Calendar Committee I 2). Pierce cuts class meetings as Professor Segall cuts chapel services, by the wholesale. He is a past master in the art of picking out the graft courses in the institution, which are called in the curriculum cultural subjects. Durgin, Albert Guy, 2 X, Orono Orono High School. Chemistry Sergeant (2); Vice President Chemical Society (3); Chairman Executive Committee Chemical Society (3). As will doubtless be remembered. Guy ' s picture in conjunction with that of a certain notorious fusser. appeared in last year ' s Prism. Guy, himself, thinks it was a misprint and begs to present the accom- panying proof-read edition. Ellis, Harold Mutton, H K, Hingham, Mass. Hingham High School.

Freddie ' s voice has brought many good things to him. among them the opportunity to hold forth of a Sunday from the choir of one of Hangor ' s leading churches.

" By his discourse he should eat nothing but liay. " Fisher ' s mild contemplation of an ' 08 class scrap was once rudely interrupted by a ducking in a cess-pool, contemplation and all.

Ben ' s troubles began en his very first day in Orono, when on stepping from the train he was asked if he were the President of the Uni- versity. He thinks a walk down Pennsylvania Avenue much more interesting than counting ties on College Street, and the change from the elite of Washington ' s " Four Hundred ' ' to the society of " Tough Knd " was a hard blow. However, the wilds of Maine are working wonders and they may make a man of him yet. French, Cecil Sumner, " Frenchy, " K 2, Kingfield Deering High School.

Dick is a " hale fellow well met " and he is a tough customer in a scrap, as many of us can testify who ran up against him when he was a sophomore in ' 07.

Skim is interested in everything and in seme cases the interest assumes abnormal proportions. Still, he ' s a worker and he ' s no shirk, and we venture the prediction that when he takes three or fonr reefs in his hat baud and gets his hair cut he will m ake his mark, and it won ' t be an easy mark.

Henry came down from the little Socialist burg known as Haver- hill, possessed with the idea that he could run things. I.ike every dog he had his day. His upward march to success was suddenly halted one night, when he attempted to remove an amorous Freshman f r m his lady love.

Ikey is a " lung ' ' tennis player. He talks, hears thinks, sees, smells, feels and tastes love games. He keeps all his belongings, except lii bed, on the court. Ikey was a hero in the " 1-lag Scrap " and wanted to know if that was a class honor.

Besides that, he ' s taking the man ' s course, and he picked out the right class after a try or two, so he doesn ' t deserve to be roasted.

Electrical Engineering Class Football (2); Class Basketball (2); Class Treas- urer (3) ; Class Nominating Committee (3) ; Junior Prome- nade Committee (3); Class Executive Committee (3). Levi is a shy, unobtrusive little boy. His apprenticeship in Sampson Bros. ' emporium has given him a good working knowledge of how to handle the " almighty dollar. ' and this In- has put to good use in engineering the class so far through a hard Junior year. 1908 THE PRISM 81 Perkins, Howard Lewis, " Piggy, " Augusta Cony High School.

Piggy is known as the man with the " co-ed " voice ; his voice is seldom heard except in the class-room, where it goes forth with a clear ring of hard plugging, carrying with it conviction and ninety per cent. Potter, Robert Eaton, " Bob, " 2 X, Bath Bath High School. Civil Engineering Class Track Team (1), (2); ' Varsity Track Team (2). Why is Boh like a kerosene lamp? ' Because he occasionally smokes, he is not especially bright, he is often turned down and he fre- quently goes out at night.

Electrical Engineering Chairman Class Executive Committee (1); Corporal (1); First Sergeant (2) ; Sophomore Hop Committee ; Captain (3); Aid Junior Promenade. The only thing that kept Harry from being arrested in connection with the " 64 " scrape was that look oi sublime innocence with which nature endowed him. Bridge is his favorite game; he has no favorite drink ; and his only occupation is sleeping. 82 THE PRISM 908 Richardson, Roy Henry, " Richie, ' A Z, Nowell, Mass. Agriculture Nowell High School. Richie thought it would be shocking if he were a conductor more than three years at a time, so he came back to finish up that course in agriculture with 08.

Among the memories of our Sophomore class meetings which will remain after all else is forgotten, are the pathetic appeals which Flopper used to make regularly for collateral with which to run the department of finance. However, as he resisted the temptation for a whole year to clear out with the class bank book and settle down to private life in the wilds of Brewer, we will forbear to roast him further. 1908 THE PRISM 83 Sawyer, William Robert, " Bill, " K 2, Milbridge Hebron Academy.

Asa conjurer and slight-of-hand artist he has no equal in the country; his favorite occupation is collecting double fares from the passengers on the electrics, and then ringing in about one out of every four.

Vssembly; Law School Baseball (1) ; Law School Basket- ball (1), (2). Dave is our nice little Y. M. C. A. Sunday School boy. We con- fidently expect that in a few short years we shall find him expounding the Gospel to the gaping crowds of Hodgdon street and Pickering Square; even now certain names and expressions from the Hol Writ are the constant words of his mouth. He even takes his arguments from the ISible in his discussion of the different propositions of law ; (this once lead the Dean to remind him that he was not in a Sunday School class.) He has a very poetic teperament as is shown by his great love for -Nature, especially for Babbling Brooks. Driscoll, George Alexander, " Connie, " Lex Club, Springfield, Mass. Springfield High School; Villa Nova College. Assembly ; Class President (1). Connie is of an extremely retiring disposition; in fact his most notable characteristic is his extreme modesty. It is with a kindly paternal spirit that the PRISM advises him to cultivate more self-esteem, and to be a bit more forward in asserting himself and his ideas. Mod- esty is a great virtue, but there is such a thing as being too virtuous for this world. Now speak right up. Connie, when the Profs make state- in. ills which you know are not so; for of course it must be admitted by all that you know far more law than they ever dreamed of.

Apparently he is the most innocent, unsophisticated mortal upon this green earth, but don ' t be deceived ; for while he is apparently swallowing all your big yarns as gospel truth, he is thinking what a cussed liar you are. and yet ting ready to mimic you and make all manner of sport of you when he gets with his cronies. lie, himself, happens to he a most accomplished disciple of Ananias, the lawyers ' patron saint. Leary, Thomas Edward, " Tom, " B. S., 2 X, 2 B n, T ' .ast Hampden Hampden Academy; University of Maine. B. S., Maine, 1905; Class Treasurer (1); Class Secre- tary and Treasurer | 2 ). In Tom we behold the typical would-be politician. I- ' or three suc- cessive terms he has held the office of Hog-reeve of the town of Hamp- den. At the caucus last summer Tom received one vote for nomination to the State legislature; Query: — Who cast it? Ask Tom. for only he and the Almighty know, and they will never tell. The old Pine Tree State is to be congratulated on its narrow escape ; for had Tom been sent to Augusta, he would never have rested until he had set up an absolute monarchy with himself at the head, and Mr. II. Brooks, Esq., as his prime minister. Maxwell, James Davidson, " Jamie, " Z ,A E P, Bangor Bangor High School; Tufts College. Tufts 1905. Assembly; ' Varsity Orchestra (1). Common Law Pleading does not seem to agree with Jamie; for directly after the exam. last spring, he announced his determination to practice in New York, where in place of complex common law practice, they use a simplified code with 97,482 sections ; we are inclined to agree with him that it would be fareasier to learn by heart all these sections of the New York code, than to learn anything about Pleading from the course that was served up to our class 1908 THE PRISM 93 Nolan, Harry McDonald, " Clip, " Lex Club, Haverhill. Mass. Haverhill High School. Wt bad a corking good grind on Clip ; hut he has used the Prism so mighty white, that we have concluded it would be a breach of friendship to give him away, especially since he has promised to set up the treat if we would keep it out of print. Clip believes in the Intensive rather than in the Extensive method of study; and so, for about a week before exams, you can find no one who does more cramming than he ; and we will add that he invariably comes out with flying colors. It is a great mystery how he was able to squeeze through Pleading by cramming two days, when the great majority of us went down in an inglorious flunk after a hard term ' s work. Rideout, Morton Howard, u Mort., M 5 B IT, Bangor Bangor High School. Class Executive Committee (1) ; Class President (2). In this tall, lean, lank individual, we have a type of the hustling young American. By profession, Mort is a contractor and builder and electrical engineer; his purpose in studying law was a mystery, but we will tell you the secret ; Mort does not intend to! His intention is to find out how far he can go in making bunco contracts and still keep out of the clutches of the law. Skillin, Carroll Brown, " Prof., " A E P, North Yarmouth Yarmouth Academy.

Boston English High School; Boston University. Assembly Executive Committee i 2 i, " Boston " has come to the wise conclusion that MAINE beats them all when it is a question of preparation for the legal profession. He tried a year at Boston Law School but found that it was far from satis- factory. We might have told him so before he went there, had he but asked our advice upon the matter. We greatly fear that he is not long for this world, he is such a delicate, frail, little fellow ; but perhaps with gentle care and tender treatment we may be able to keep him with us until we graduate from this school.

Appearances are deceitful , but nevermore so than in the case of Judge; he is not a minister though sometimes taken for one. He is now candidate for the defunct Sturgis commission, as he certainly believes in putting down all kinds of intoxicants that he can get hold of. He says the reason he did not stay at Indiana was because the climate did not agree with him, — as a matter of fact we know that it did get rather hot for him, so het. in truth, that he had to skiddoo on something less than 24 hours 1 notice from the faculty.

Xo, indeed, he is not strong e-nough for such stren-u-ous sport ; he likes to play pitch-ing cop-pers with his li-a-bil-i-ty lim-i-ted to two cents : but his fa-vo-rite past-time is prat-tling a-bout his corp-o-ration in Lou-i-si-a-na, and wor-ship-ing Ted-dy Roosevelt. 1908 THEPRISM 95 Greeley, Harry Burton, " Greet, ' Hampden Hampden Academy. Class Executive Committee l Greel is famous principally for his strenuous administration as president of the MA INK lodge of the International Anti-cigarette League ; he works on the principal " If I smoke ' em. there will be so many less for some one else to smoke : " this has caused some few people to put him down as a cigarette fiend, but he is not ; he is simply eager to sacrifice himself to the noble cause to which he has devoted himself. Hamilton, William Parker, " Ham, 1 ' B. A., Caribou Caribou High School; Bates College; Michigan Law School. B. A., Bates, 1895; Assembly. Ham is a man of very fine judgment, as is shown by the fact that after many and varied experiences as a pedagogue, and as a student in some of the Western law schools, he concluded that after all, there was no place quite like old MAINE, so we are fortunate in having him with us, and being able to sit at his feet and learn the ways of wisdom. Ridlon, Horace Denver, li Hod, " A E P, Stetson Stetson Academy. Assembly Treasurer (1), (2). This man is not a cruel ogre who eats people alive ; he is really tender-hearted and kind ; his habitual expression is but the result of many years ' experience as a teacher and superintendent of schools. We do not wonder that children hold him in the greatest awe. for even Simp in his wildest ravings never dared call down Hod, as he has called down about every one else in the class.

Mainefellow Twenty moons ago there gathered In the valley of Orono On the banks of the Stillwater, A noble tribe, known then as Freshmen Aughty-Nine in council meetings. Mighty were they in their own minds, Brave and terrible in battle. Then it was they chose their war-chief, Higgins, greatest of the warriors, Brave was he and full of courage, Far ahead of all the tribes-men In the ways and means of warfare ' Gainst the brave and mighty Soph ' mores. Thus it is that I shall tell you How this tribe came to the council Met defeat — and sometimes triumphed O ' er their brave and strong opponents. From the north and east they gathered, From the south and from the westward, Came this mighty band of warriors 100 THE PRISM 1908 Decked out brightly in green war-paint. At their coming to the council Peace was ended on the Campus And there ' rose the awful Death-Song And the tumult grew discordant. Then the Sophomores ducked and washed them For their greeny, grassy freshness. Stronger then rose up their spirit Toward their elders and their betters And their wrath was hot within them Hot to fight and gain a vict ' ry. Thus they grew in strength and wisdom Gained in confidence and cunning ' Til at last the time was Hearing For a mighty stroke of valour. Springtime came upon the valley And the tribe grew very restless Anxious for some great excitement Wishing for a mighty Smoke-Talk Safe from every interference Free from all pursuit and danger. Long and secret was their planning And when everything was ready There was held a mighty Smoke-Talk In the most approved method. In a place free from all dangers, Safe from all their wily foemen. Many warriors were assembled , — some were absent, — lost, — detained, But they had achieved a triumph Greater than the tribes before them One that stood out clear in history Like a land-mark in the desert. Summer spreads o ' er all the valley And the time is fast approaching When the warriors meet together For the last and final conflict. Long and loud the war-cries sounded 1908 THE PRISM 101 And the foes, into the river Hand in hand, together entered Where they struggled without ceasing Now above, now ' neath the water Dark and dirty in the struggle. Then they rose from out the water Smoked the pipe of peace together Buried deep the massive paddle Put aside their hate, — forever. Thrice the moon rose o ' er the valley Ere again the tribe assembled For a purpose far more pressing Than they heretofore had met with. For a new tribe took the Campus From the bold and wily Aught-Nine. Quickly then they chose a war-chief Chose a man of valour, Jo-sef, And he called the tribe together Told them of the raids and freshness Of these arrogant usurpers. Many were their fights together Great and mighty were the vict ' ries And their foes were swept before them By the broad and springy paddle, Ush-Wush, famed as pain-producing. Well have they performed their duties As the bold and mighty Soph ' mores Done it well beyond undoing Worked with care and greatest patience And the valley lies in quiet Free from all discordant noises While the terror of the Freshmen Nag-Gan-Nosh, the greatest river, Mighty current, great Stillwater, Sparkles ever in the sunlight As it flows on toward the ocean.

The Governor came to the train with me, gave me a pile of money and said, " Now, son, you ' ve got a chance to show what you ' re made of, " and then he piked off. Gee! I guess I ' m in for a good time now, all right. Sept. 20, Thur. I went up on the campus today. I had to register and put down everything I wanted to study and all the teachers I was to have and where I boarded and what church I belonged to and — I wonder if they skipped anything. Seems as if they ' re pretty inquisitive. Besides that I had to shell out about half the cash Dad gave me. Guess I can ' t blow much if it ' s going at that rate. There was an awful gang of fellows there and they looked about like a cross between a cowboy and a dude. Some of them wore big corduroy pants and high boots and flannel shirts and slouch hats turned up in front, desperado style, and they only needed a six-shooter to complete the outfit. Sept. 24, Mon. Gosh, but I was mad today ! A fellow came up to me, and I hadn ' t done anything to him, either, and he knocked my new derby off and stepped on it. I would have sailed into him but he had a big crowd of fellows with him. I don ' t like these fellows who are always going around with a chip on their shoulder anyway. Sept. 25, Tues. In chapel this morning the red-headed man on the- platform said that all the Freshmen were to have a meeting at one o ' clock, so as soon as we could eat our grub we all went up. We elected a fellow named Chase, pres- 108 THE PRISM 1908 ident, and then we planned how we weren ' t going to do any night-shirt parad- ing for the Sophs, (those are the fresh guys up here who think they own the whole place.) Tonight we had an awful scrap in the middle of the road and I had more fun than a little bit helping put a Soph under the hose spout of a house, but I got wet all right. We scrapped for a long time and then somebody hollered something about " d d Juniors " and we stopped. Oct. 9, Tues. The funniest thing happened today ! The big fellow who knocked my dip off came up to me and asked if I couldn ' t come over to dinner with him, and he took me over to one of those big frat houses. There was a crowd of fellows in there all cracking jokes and smoking and singing funny songs and some that weren ' t funny. They were nice as pie to me. A fellow down in Bangor told me those societies up there at Orono were just like anarch- ists, and they drew lots and the fellow who drew the right number had to go out and kill somebody or blow up something, whether they wanted to or not. But I don ' t believe a word of it. Anyway they gave me a " bid. " They ' re a pretty slick crowd, but I guess I ' ll wait and see what ' s what. Oct. 15, Sat. Fast night I was asleep when somebody grabbed my arm and hollered, " Turn out, Freshmen! " By jingoes, I was some scared. Right there was one of those pesky Sophs and he made me put on some old clothes and go down stairs with him. Then I had to run through a long line of them all armed with clubs and paddles. Gosh ! Every step I took I got a peach of a crack on my rear deck. When I reached the end of the line somebody yelled, " This is a co-ed chaser, " and I told him he was a liar. Then I had to run all the way back again. Holy smoke ! It seemed as if my pants were on fire they felt so terribly hot. That ' s what the fellows call a razoo. Nov. 2, Fri. Went down to Bangor last night to see a show 7 called " Dare Devil Dorothy. " It cost me forty cents altogether. I ' ll have tocharge that up to " Miscellaneous. " " Miscellaneous " covers a multitude of sins on my bank acct. Jan. 16, Wed. Went to a dance the other night after a basketball game and met a lot of nice girls from Veazie and Old-Town, two cities near here. This writing a diary is too much work. I ' m going to cut it out. There isn ' t much doing now anyway. May 17, Friday. Well, here it is ' most the middle of May. Maine is certainly a great place. I hope the Governor will hitch me here for good next year. Next thing ' s the " frog-pond scrap. " MEMBERS OF 1910 L f.roy WinField Ames Bangor. Wales Henry Andrews, H e ii Middleboro, Mass. Frances Elizabeth Stanislaus Arnold Orono.

As soon as possible after this, the trustees arranged for competitive plans to be submitted by archi- tects, and each competitor was provided with a list of items that the librarian of the university regarded as desirable to have provided in the building. Eleven sets of plans were submitted to the committee appointed by the trustees, President Fellows, and Messrs. Henry Lord, E. B. Winslow and E. J. Haskell of the board, and for a report to Professor F. W. Chandler, Professor of Architecture in the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- ogy, who had been engaged as an expert adviser. The plans recommended by Professor Chandler were those prepared by Brainerd Leeds of Boston, and as they were those which were the first choice of the committee, they were immediately adopted. Bids were advertised for and the contract for erection awarded to the Horace Purington Company of Waterville. The foundation was put in during the fall of 1 905 and work on the superstructure begun in the spring of 1 906, as soon as the frost was out of the ground. Corner stone exercises were held in June, 1906, and the dedicatory exercises on Nov. 2, 1906. The books were moved from the old quarters in Coburn Hall during the Thanksgiving recess. The library is a dignified and attractive building, of a modified Greek type, with Doric columns in front, su mounted by a dome. The breadth is one hundred and six feet, and the extreme depth one hundred and ten feet. The exterior is of Hallowell granite. 286 THE PRISM 1908 The main entrance is through a vestibule into a deliv- ery hall, at the rear of which is the delivery desk and the en- trance to the stacks. On the right is the reference room, and on the left the periodical room, each of which is provided with reading tables and chairs; to- gether they accommodate nine- ty-six readers. To the rear of the periodical room is a room for reserved books, the entrance to which is control ' ed by the delivery desk, and in this are placed all books which are not freely accessible. Opening from the delivery hall and the reference room are the librarian ' s offices. The catalog stands in the delivery hall, near the entrance to the stacks. On the second floor is an opening in the center twenty-four feet square, surrounded by a gallery, lighted from the dome overhead. On this floor is a lecture hall which has seating accommodations for one hundred and fifty. There are five seminar rooms, each of which is provided with plenty of shelf room, lockers for students, tables and chairs. On the walls of the gallery and the lecture room are hung the greater part of the interesting collection of the University Guild. The stacks are fire proof, built of steel, with glass floors, with the walls lined with hollow tile. There are three floors above the basement, and there is shelf capacity for 75,000 volumes. There is ample room for extension to the rear when necessary. The cataloger ' s room is partitioned off from one corner of the first floor, and has a door opening into the librarian ' s offices in the main building. The lighting is thoroughly satisfactory. A local telephone system connects each floor of the stacks and the seminar 1908 THE PRISM 287 rooms with the librarian ' s office, the delivery desk, and the janitor ' s room. There is a tele- phone connecting the librarian ' s office with the university branch exchange. The building is heated by steam, the ventilation is good, and the lighting ample and artistic. There are shaded electric reading lamps on the tables, with additional overhead lights where necessary. The basement is practically above the ground level. It contains a newspaper room, sup- plied with reading stands, racks, tables and chairs, a club room in which meetings of various student organizations are held and where the monthly receptions of the Round Table to stu- dents and faculty take place, store room, boiler room, and so forth. An additional gift of $5,000 was made by Mr. Carnegie for furnishings, and this amount was sufficient to provide all that was required. The furniture is of Flemish oak, substantial and appropriate. The interior wood work is finished to correspond. The walls of the read- ing rooms are a light ivory so that with the large windows which they have, they are light and cheerful. The walls of the delivery hall and the gallery are a Venetian pink, and those of the lecture hall a light green, making an effective background for the art collection. The plans of the architects provided for economical construction, avoiding the unneces- sary extravagances which usually result in costs running above estimates. The granite was supplied by the Hallo well Granite Works at a price far below the market rate, and conces- sions of various kinds were granted by others, so that the building was erected and furnished for the amount of Mr. Carnegie ' s gifts, the cost being about twenty cents a cubic foot, a sum far less than that for which such a building could ordinarily be erected. Although Mr. Carnegie has made many gifts, it is doubtful if among them all, is one where the result is so satisfactory for the sum given, or where it will be of greater benefit to those it is designed to serve. jkJU ,11. j n yi «k-- vj i Milt ; : y •. ■ Wv.

It was Easter Sunday, and the charitably inclined were depositing a thank offering with the priest at the door.

That such is the case is evident, however, from the following letter which was inadvertently left where thieving hands could thieve. Beechmont, Mass., Oct. 20, 1906. R. C. Heath. My Dear Ralph : I am writing to ask permission to publish some of your letters to my daughter Erne in the " Revere Journal.

FIGHTING THE BATTLE Eli Lambe was loafing as usual down in the corner room when the Reverend LaMarche entered on a visit to Strawberry Holbrook, who is one of his most devoted parishioners. In a minute he spied Eli, who was a member of a former flock down in Calais. With a smile of recognition he laid his hand on the studious lad ' s brow and solicitously inquired : " Well, Emerson, my boy, how goes the battle ? " " SAD " DROWNING ACCIDENT It may not be out of place in these columns to mention the fact that our talented and enterprising young electrician, Hinky Dee, alias A. E. Tremaine, met with a mishap a short time ago. As we all know, George Henry the Second is a true sport, and he determined to be in the swim, as it were, and take his young lady out canceing. So Tremaine applied himself with redoubled energy to Janie Hart ' s practical astronomy so that he would know enough 291 about navigation to paddle his own canoe at the time appointed. Unfortunately, Janie didn ' t take up canoe navigation. The time comes round, and Tremaine helps his lady love into the frail birchen craft first, and then boldly but gracefully steps in and pushes off himself. The canoe immediately turns turtle and the girl receives one of the duckings of her life. Hinky Dee anxiously inquires whether she has friends in Old Town who may render assistance, and she saucily replies that she hasn ' t, and she wouldn ' t go to them in that condition if she had. Now is the time when Tremaine, instead of sitting down like the sluggard and repining on his sad fate, shows himself to be a man of initiative and resources, equal to the exigencies of the hour. He escorts the moist maiden far into the solitude of the sylvan forest and there kindles a great bonfire. There they sit in bliss and blister until they are completely dried out and ready for the next blunder into which Tremaine ' s initiative and resources may seduce him. 4 The Junior members of the Student Council recently protested against the singing of the college " hymn " by the students. We commend their enterprise but doubt their success in introducing such a radical reform at short notice. 292 j Charles A. G. Blossom, All Round College Athlete, j Of all the young men from New Bedford who ire enrolled in var ious colleges in New England but few have ilntnnriiiHlit ' J lln-mm-lves m any field of athletics while at school Whether this is due to indifference towards college sports or to in ability to cope, with the legion of Freshmen who come from preparatory schools and have bad spe- cial training, it is bard to say. A number of local boys have taken enough interest in various branches of sport to go out with the squads at the beginning of the training season and some have succeeded in landing positions on clasa teams But this is an entirely different matter from be- ing so proficient in one of the major branches of sport aa to win a place on a varsity organization and eventually achieve the distinction of wearing the college letter — the ambition of nearly every man who enters college and becomes actively in- terested in foot ball, base ball or track. To win let- ters in both foot ball and base ball is n distinction even among college athletes themselves, but surh has been the good fortune of Charles A. 0. Blos- som of this city, who is a student in the University of Maine. Before entering college he had gained an enviable reputation as an all around athlete in the High school, serving as captain of both fool ball and baseball team9 during bis senior year. and meeting with marked success in leading these sports. After leaving High school, he continued to play base ball, holding down a position bebic 1 the bat with numerous amateur teams in this vicinity. This experience fitted him for his athletic caret i in college, although he found keener competition and better men to meet in this field than in his contests around this city. Going to college without any previous record end succeeding in winning a letter in base ball ami a varsity position in football is a record of which any young man might well be prcud and it is iu teresting to note his progress from the time he ar- rived at college with aspirations for athletic dis tinction until he finally secured recognition amonp the athletes of the school. Mr. Blossom entered the University of Maine in the fall of 1005. being enrolled in the law school We went there with the idea of playing football and as soon as the call for candidates came, Blos- som trotted out to the field and reported to the coach, asking for a uniform and telling of his in- tention to play. " What have you ever done in footballl " was asked. " Used to play on the High school team at Mew Bedford, " he replied. " Never heard of it. " answered the coach, but Blossom was 6ent down to get bis togs, together with 30 or 40 other men, and came out on the grid- iron to have his first experience in college football. Falling on the ball and learning signals was all that ho had an opportunity to do for the first few dayt but eventually when it was seen that he did have vmc idea of the game he was put In at left I ' Af on the scrub team to buck up against Hie var- ty. in order to give the real players prac- tice. Tnis scrimmage work is the hardest kind of training for the second, or " scrub " eleven, aa it is called, for it is against them that all the now piays evch ' jd by the eoaebes are directed. The scrub lines up lime alter time and goes through the gruelling work of stopping the plunges of the opposing players. Do this for an hour or two at a stretch without an opportunity to take the of- fensive at nil and the " glorious sport " becomes a meaningless term to the young player who has bean pushiil nad kicked around the field with apparently no chance to show what he can do. Of BOnrsa Blossom went through this prelimin- ary work together with tbo rest of the recruits, but his skill on the defensive soon attracted at- tention and he was placed behind the varsity men to follow the plays and learn the signals. This accomplished, bo was given a chance in practice to get in with them and curry the ball in scrim- mages. He showed up to good advantage in this work and when the squad was put on the train- ing table, be was assigned a position with the rwt of the regular players. From this on Blossom appeared in the Hae-np of the team and when the season stalled he was one of the halfbacks, a substitute oue might say, although during the first part of the schedule he had a chance at some time or other during the games to play. His first real game was against Brown, played at Providence in October. Maine did not show the form that was expected of the team and along in the first part of the second half when Brown seemed to be able to penetrate the opposing line aim rut at will, Blossom was put in to try and stem the tide One man of course could not do all of it but ho played a good defensive game and when Maine finally took the ball on downs. Blossom was sent against the line with it. To his credit it ought to be said that in the short time ho was in the game, he succeeded in carrying tfic ball a greater distance tnan did any of the other backs on bis team. In addition to the Brown game, he played in the Vermont and the Colby games, wrenching his knee in the latter contest so badly, however, that he was unable to play during the rest of the season and bad to leave the eleven. When spring came aroand and talk of base ball interested the whole college community, Blossom got out bia big catcher ' s mit, sauntered forth to the base ball cape and reported to the coach He was given a place with the squad and took part in the preliminary batting practice. He went jp against the ball in a manner that revealed pre- vious experience, and win n fie wos placed be- hind the bat and given an opportunity to throw to bases it was quickly proved thut he I ' new some- thing about tho game although ho hadn ' t come from some " prep " school with a long record lacked after his name. When the squad was taken out of doors for work on the diamond, Blossom went with it and frum then until tho end of the school term, he was on tlio regular list. Tlw schedule called far 17 games end of these Blosson caught 14 full games and ployed right field dm ing another one. But five stolon bases were or itcd against him during the season, while at I i bat be bit for .295, a remarkably good record fuc his first year on the team when it is taken Into consideration that Maine went up against the best pitchers in the college world last spring. With base ball and foot ball to tako his time, Blossom did not go out for track work, but be intends to start wim the squad at college iu this branch of uthletics, his particular depart meat being in the weights. With no coaching whatever, he has thrown the hammer ovor 90 feet aud put the shot nearly 35. Last fall Blossom started well in the foot ball seasoD, but b e was put out of the game early by in- juries. He is now looking forward to tho spring ' s base bull, and it is expected that he will catch -very game played by his college this year. BAFFLES ' " LITTLE STUNT AT NEWSPAPER REPORTING Clipping (rom the Evening Standard, New Bedford, Mass., January 27, 1907 293 THE BOOK OF THE ELEVENTH PLAGUE Now it came to pass that on the fourth day of the ninth month in the year 1905, there appeared on the campus a strange heathen who journeyed from a far country, even Dallas, Texas, where the men weareth whiskers on their pants and six-shooters in their boots, and tanglefoot floweth like milk and honey. And the manner of speech of the man was strange, so that only those of the tribe called " sharks " could understand him. And in his mouth he bore a strange and won- drous object. And behold, as the heathen walked forth upon the campus his going forth was heralded by much smoke which enveloped him as in a cloud. And as the cloud settled over the people many were afflicted as with a sore plague, and the distress thereof was great, so that terror and chaos folio ' ed in his wake as destruction followeth in the path of the storm. And the young men of the land gathered themselves together and took counsel among themselves, saying, " What manner of vegetable is this which the heathen sports, and which spreadeth a pestilence abroad in the land, causing sore distress among the people, even among the co-eds ? And some said, " It is a miniature fertilizer factory ; " others said, " Nay it is yonder pulp mill; " but still others said, " It is naught but the leaves of the skunk cabbage which flourisheth like a green bay tree among the swamps of the Stillwasser. " But the heathen spake nothing but, " Zo ! Zo! dot iss great, " and went his way, spreading the plague as a pestilence stalketh abroad at noonday. And the young men spake among themselves, saying, " How can we rid the land of this distress? " And behold two exceeding wise young men, Schmudt and Schmidt by name, who could smoke anything from a coffin tack to a ham, spake saying, " Behold we will put the heathen to the woods, even at the cost of getting stuck in Gm 3a. " And they went out and chartered the University of Maine Band, and stationed it under his window, and bade it strike up " Stabat Mater. " And even as the sound of the trumpets reached his ears the heathen fled, leaving behind his cattle, and his horses, and his fiddle, and his pussy-cat, and all his worldly goods, for his 294 love for good music was even greater than his frenzy for cheap cigars, and he realized that murder was being committed under his very ears. But even to this day the shade of the pesti-lentz stalketh abroad on the campus at reg- ular intervals, carrying consternation enough to break up a faculty meeting. THE PSYCHOLOGICAL MOMENT Dr. Fernald — (lecturing on the association of ideas) : " Now Miss Aiken, what thought occurs to your mind immediately upon the mention of the word " date . ' ?

AS THE PRESS SEES IT 300 AN ENGLISH " JOKE " (This is a sample of some of the table-talk sent in to the PRISM under the categorical cognomen of " Joke. " ) The Timid Freshman Mary, (who thinks the Freshmen have left the room) — " Had we better put Louise in the bath tub, or wait until the river thaws ? " Louise, (behind her) — " O, don ' t wait on my account. There ' s no time like the pres- ent. " To persons whose sense of humor is deficient this may need some explanation, which is given herewith. The point of the joke lies in the fact that Mary, a Sophomore, took any thought of the presence or absence of freshmen when she wanted to remark upon them. Other subordinate points which add to the humor of the situation are the unparalleled temerity of Louise in remaining behind, and her uncompromising audacity in presuming to dictate the time of her approaching ablutions to the belligerent Sophomores. From careful inspection and study this appears to be the correct analysis of the joke, but if any one, after looking into the matter exhaustively, sees another explanation, or finds other subtle and delicate humor in it, their views of the matter will be gratefully received at the office of the Lampooner. After the last football game last fall, H. B.

" Bill didn ' t have a chance to repeat the operation, as it took him until warm weather to make up the work lost. 309 " ACH!

When the musical clubs were in Millin- ocket, fire broke out in the house where several of the men put up for the night, ' among them Mr. A. E. Tremaine. At the first alarm the fren- zied Tremaine leaped out of bed- grabbed his precious mandolin, entirely forgetting his clothes, and put for the back stairs, clad only in his pajamas and his native mod- esty, which for Tremaine is a rather etherial and filmy garment for winter wear. About half way down he tripped and rolled ma- jestically to the bottom, the man- dolin merrily chasing him behind like a giant bed-bug. This well-nigh fatal accident impaired Tremaine ' s nerve for several days, but he has gotten it all back again by this time.

The night is dark and the trolley car carries them past their destination. They both dash for the platform and gaze into outer darkness as the car speeds on. " Jump, " says Fritzie, and Professor Jacob leaps into the dark jaws of the night. A moment later Fritzie walks back from where the car has dropped him to find the Professor floundering on hands and knees in a small pond of water which sets back into the road, while the blue atmosphere is rent with expletives in French, Spanish, Italian, and plain English. " Jake " doesn ' t wait to take the train back home, but walks.

BANGOR 1908 PRISM ADVERTISER vii Hart, Schaffner flarx CLOTHING Success in any business comes from knowing what people want ; and in providing it for them. That ' s the way we have built up this clothing business. We know that every man wants good clothes ; every man thinks the clothes he buys are as good as he can get for the money, or he wouldn ' t buy them. There ' s a variety of opinion as to what good clothes are ; and as to what you have to pay for them ; but clothes-goodness is a matter of fact, not of opinion, and the price is based on the facts, not on what you think about them. We know that all men consider all-wool as best in clothing ; and want it in the clothes they buy. We know that about ninety per cent of the clothing now being sold and worn is not all-wool, but is part cotton ; in some cases seventy-five per cent cotton. Think of it? Nine-tenths of the men buying inferior clothes ; goods adulterated and cheapened with cotton. In other words, we hold that the highest standard of quality is not too high for the clothing business. Cotton masquerading as wool is a fraud, and we believe that fraud in clothes is just as bad as fraud in anything else. The maker of clothes has as great a moral obligation to the public to supply honest quality, as the producer of food. We think the wearer of clothes has some responsibility in the matter, too. We want you to know the facts. If you have no trustworthy assurance that your clothes are all wool, they ' re probably part cotton. If you want cotton mixed clothes, all right- if you don ' t, you needn ' t have them. Our label means all-wool ; you can have it if you choose. It ' s a small thing to look for, a big thing to find Miller Webster Clothing Co., BANGOR, MAINE. Vlll PRISM ADVERTISER 1908 Conundr ! onunarum !
