7[)e Prize Gompapy During the first part of the fall term, 1889, the plan of forming a company to drill against Company K was advocated; soon 20 men were chosen and Company K challeng- ed for a prize drill, to take place Dec. loth, the prize to be a stand of colors. On the 18th of November, most of the company went to Springfield to see " The Peabody Guards " drill. After this the company drilled daily from one to two hours, also two evenings in College Hall, in preparation for the contest with Company K. On the night of the trial, Dec. loth, the company left the college about 630 o ' clock, marching down town, preceded by the drum corps, which proved later in the evening to be a valu- able addition to the drill. The judges of the contest were Col. Clark, Lieut. Cornish and Rev. J. B. Dr ennan. Company A formed and reported to the judges at about 8.30 o ' clock. The drilling of the company was very good. Of course some mistakes were made, it being the first public drill of the company. The loading and firing were especially fine. After a selection from the drum corps, Company K took the floor and performed the movements upon the schedule. Then followed a selection from the orchestra, after which the judges rendered their decision, which was unanimous in favor of Company A, and the flag was presented to Capt. Barry amid the applause of the audience and three cheers from Company K. After the companies were dismissed, preparations were made for the dance, which was very enjoyable. During the winter term, several companies were challenged but all declined except The Father Mathew Cadets of Pittsfield. Arrangements for a drill were nearly complet- ed, when about two weeks before it was to take place, they withdrew, much to the disgust of our company. Company A appeared at two other times in College Hall during the winter, once on Feb. 17th and again Feb. 21st. On the latter date, the company gave an exhibition and sabre drill, and also a prize drill in the manual, for the benefit of the Base Ball Associa- tion. The gold medal offered for the manual drilling was won by R. P. Lyman of the class of ' 92. Although this was the last exhibition drill that was given, yet Company A continu- ed intact until commencement. All who were members of the company look back on their experiences without regret for the extra time they gave to it, as well as with kind regard for Capt. Barry, who so faithfully trained them. 81

eiiASS 8©jM(s. As we gather round the drill hall, To sing our parting song, Happy memories rush upon us, one by one. ' Tis from here we took the cannon And with them fed the sheep. While we all laughed at poor old Ninety-one. Chorus. Hurrah for Ninety! our class so dear! How " Ching, Chang, Chong, " our hearts will cheer. We will sing our parting song, As we gather in a throng, And we ' ll bid farewell to all our college days. Now to our chapel fine, let us sing a little line. How we took our freshman picture on the steps. How upon the black clock face. We saw ' Ninety ' s shining face. When we went to chapel one fine Sunday morn. — Chorus. From South College we must part. But it nearly breaks our heart. For ' tis here we find the fire marshal brave. In the tower tall and square, Joe and Castro live up there. And they manufacture weather at the top. - — Chorus. At North College ' s ancient shrine, We will sing our classic rhyme. As we bid farewell to Journald, Puck and Judge; For no longer Taft and Stone Up the iron stairs will go. Nor will Captain Dave his tactics study more. — Chorals. Now Old Chapel say good-bye, We must leave you with a sigh For the many happy times we crossed your door. We have parted from the lab. And Infinity and Tab, And John Sherman rings the brazen bell no more. — Chorus. 80

Ne Version oP an Bid Song. ( To be sung to the tune of The Mocking Bird.) I ' m thinking now of Tabby, of Tabby, of Tabby, I ' m thinking now of Tabby, For the thought of him is charming to me still. Many bolted recitations from the " labby, " the " labby, " the " labby, Many bolted recitations from the " labby, " While Tabby ' s rocking cradle with a will. Chorus. Listen to the lul-la-by, Listen to the lul-la-by, The lul-la-by he ' s singing to his heir. Listen to the lul-la-by, Listen to the lul-la-by, As the soothing notes are floated on the air. My thoughts are now of the " Lieut., " the " Lieut., " the " Lieut., " My thoughts are now of Lieutenant, And the bad old cigarettes he likes to smoke. His office is covered with soot, with soot, with soot, His office is covered with soot, And the smoke there is so thick ' twill make you choke. Chorus. Come and take a smoke with me. Come and take a smoke with me, From strongest cigarettes there ' ere was made. Come and take a smoke with me, Come and take a smoke with me. For you know I ' m well acquainted with the trade, ' Tis of Fernald now I ' m writing, I ' m writing, I ' m writing, ' Tis of Fernald now I ' m writing. And those queer old chestnut jokes he loves to make. He will make them while we ' re reciting, reciting, reciting. He will make them while we ' re reciting. As ihfiugh we needed them to keep awake. Chorus. Listen to the jokes he cracks, Listen to the jokes he cracks, He ' s reading them from olT his note books. Listen to the jokes he cracks. Listen to the jokes he. cracks. Making them without a changing of his looks. 82
