preshiman Nigi b. It is customary for the Freshmen to celebrate the last Friday night of every college 3 ' ear with a class supper and other jollifications; so it was with ' 93, when Freshmen, but everything seemed to work against them. Lieut, and Prex. considered them rather a reck- less class and refused them the use of the $20,000 cannon. To overcome this discourage- ment, they set to work loading shells for the rifles, and as things seemed to run very smoothly, they at last became a little reckless, and one day those horrid Sophomores stole all their cartridges; then, deeming them too little experienced in the use of fire-arms, they took nearly all their guns, leaving about a dozen in the hands of the steadiest men. At last the bell rang, announcing that all examinations were over, and a few Sopho- mores hastened to guard the bell, getting ahead of the Freshmen and fastening the door behind them. Now the Freshmen, finding that they were beaten, spiked the door, but this inconvenienced no one, for pretty soon a Soph, wishing to come down, was let down on the bell rope. The Freshmen, seeing this, got hold of the rope, pulled it down pnd cut it into pieces; but you may now see all these pieces adorning ' 92 ' s rooms. About 9 o ' clock, the Freshmen repaired to the Amherst House to a supper, but as they had no printed menu (on account of expense), we cannot say what they had, except the ice- cream, which they brought up to the Juniors. After the Juniors ' supper, the bonfire was next on the programme, and we can say it was a good one, as the farm furnished the material and teams to draw it with, free. About 2 o ' clock, A. M., some Freshmen of ' 91 tried to reach the bell, but after a desper- ate effort, they succeeded in getting themselves caught in the P. S. K. ' s g3 ' m. Thus ended Freshman Night, and we agree with what Prof. Maynard said to a Junior, next mr)rning: " You had a very quiet night, last night, not disturbing me once. " 112
