5 enier. Class Colors — Magenta and Old Gold. Class Yell — Rah-Rah-Rah ; Oo-Ah-Oo; Oo-Ah-Oo; ' 92. f S the " wheels of time " move slowly on, and the pages of history are unfolded, let Y us question for a little the historian. As his eye wanders over the world, he sees f a succession of mountains and valleys, alternating one after the other, gradually broadening until they seem disseminated over the surface of the whole world. Immediately before him is a valley of unusual breadth and luxuriance of vegetation, its fertile fields traversed with many streams of broad and deep waters. At the farther side of this valley rises a rugged mountain range, with glittering rocks cropping the surface here and there. A company of men are eagerly pressing on up its sides, but as the historian ' s gazehngers, he sees them turn sadly away, for they have learned the truth of the old adage that " all is not gold that glitters. " On the other side the valley is another mountain, equal in grandeur and ruggedness to the first, and the keen eye of the historian perceives that within these walls of earth are hidden vast stores of those metals which delight the eye of a manufacturer. Down its sides run shallow tumultuous streams, and upon its summit sits an evil genius. Such is the tale of the historian. What is this broad and fertile valley, and what are those mountains, its neighbors ? Over the broad expanse of the former seems to be written the legend of ' 92. Those broad and deep waters are streams of progress, flow- ing out to the wide world beyond. The farther mountain with its glitter of delusive dust has inscribed upon its summit the name of ' 91, while the other shows the bold face of ' 93. Such are the relations that the historian ascribes to ' 92, and such, fellow classmates, we are to consider our position. Our guiding genius may sometimes have been sportive, and slightly fractious, but she has led us faithfully to the position we now hold. We have reached these heights of seniority untrammeled by under-class conditions. We .have passed from Freshman oblivion and Sophomoric turmoil, and have escaped the matrimonial " Slough of Despond, " into which so many Juniors are wont to fall. 30
But the lot of a Senior is by no means an easy one, for not only has he his regular college duties to perform, but he is expected to maintain an air of serious intellectuality, and his face must shine with the reflection of all those higher psychical states with which he has become so familiar, while beneath his sportive tile must repose a brain unrivaled in originality and utterly devoid of self-interest. If we fail in one or all of these qualifications, or if vv(W)eeds have sometimes been found among our f(F)ields, we ask your indulgence, for even Seniors are but mortal. Trusting your magnanimity for this, we bid you farewell. T. Does My Halo Fit. ' 31
