totally different one. In the rope-pull we were also beaten; but in this, as in the foot- ball game, we had experience against us, and this always renders those possessing it much stronger. Oftentimes defeat is worth more than victory, as it brings out the weak and also the strong points, teaching us to remedy the things in which we are deficient, as well as to strengthen those in which we excel. The defeats which we have suffered show us that we must keep constantly at work, throw our whole soul into the matter at hand,, and, above all, never to give up, but with buoyant hearts to push on to victory ; and we believe that, if in the future the class of ' 96 does this, they will be sure of success in all their undertakings. Wherever vacancies have existed in the various college organizations, ' 96 has shown that her men were capable of filling them ; and already they may be seen in the o-lee club, orchestra, and band. The college foot-ball team has drawn from our ranks,, and we believe that, with the material which we have, ' 96 will be seen on the diamond in the games of the college team in the spring. In the various other associations our men are showing up well. In closing, let it be said that we aspire to continue through our college course,, ever increasing the bonds of friendship and of fraternal love, bearing in mind the fact that influence and true greatness come only to the one who works earnestly and. diligently for them.

SO be successful in any undertaking, it is necessary to obtain a good start, and thus far the class of ' 96 has been exerting itself to get this fundamental requisite of all success, in order that, with the foundation well laid, we may make the whole structure firm and substantial. Let us see what history has chronicled concerning us, that we may be able to see wherein we have excelled, and in what we are deficient. There were forty-four strong, brave hearts who enlisted under our banner, and set out to meet whatever was in store for them. Only two have fallen out, but already these vacancies have been filled, and we hope that we can now push on with full ranks, and go through to the end without wavering or losing a single one. The rush with ' 95 on one of the first days of the term may have been due to an innocent mistake made by the faculty. Be this as it may, the two classes collided on the stairs of the Old Chapel building. The Sophomores wished to bring on the rush in the entry of North College ; but our captain, with wise forethought, arranged his men in solid ranks on the stairs, and when the momentous moment came, and the two contending forces clashed against each other, we were enabled to clear the way, and thus to win the day. In the great Freshman-Sophomore foot-ball game we suffered defeat; but this is nothing more than is usual with Freshmen, and we have reason to congratulate ourselves that we held the score down as well as we did. It was a hard-fought game from beginning to end, our team not giving up until time was called; and could we have had the experience which our opponents possessed, the score would have been a
