Junior Class Colors — Peacock Blue and Cream. Class Yell — Rah-Rex-Rah ! Zip-Boom-Bah ' 94 ! ' 94 ! Rah-Rah-Rah HISTORY. f LMA MATER : — Fleeting time has again honored us with the pleasure of presenting } to your reputed annual the accustomed communication, our first as upper class ▼ men. Incredible it seems, that the first half of our course is completed, and that we are gradually nearing the goal of our ambition. The achievements and mishaps of our class during our course as underclassmen have often before been related, sometimes with dismay, but more often with pride and delight. They need no repetition upon these pages, our memory having fully recorded them, never to be forgotten, as happy events, standing as mementoes of the history of our beloved class. We need not relate our numerous earlier athletic victories, nor picture the scenes of our few accompanying defeats. We need not enlighten you as to our educational and social abilities, for our position in these matters is already established and recognized. As before said, we need not again display records of our phenomenal progress earlier in our course, as it is alreadv impressed upon you too strongly to ever be questioned. Our history of the past few months alone is necessary to be penned. We were indeed disappointed at the result of the last Freshman night ; we had thought that the magnitude and success of the event in the previous year would lead our successors to follow our bright example, and make it the gala event of their college course. Our Junior year opened under the brightest of circumstances ; our numbers had greatly decreased during our Sophomore year, but the remainder returned as Juniors, and the words of one of our worthy professors are well quoted : " The advancement from the Sophomore to the Junior year is, indeed, a critical period, and the class of ninety-fou7 ' is to be heartily congratulated upon losing so few members. " 33

Hardly were we settled for the year ' s work when our Junior trip took place, an event which will ever remain fresh upon our minds as one of our happiest times together. How we gloriously marched upon the charms of Wellesley and its college ; carried Boston and its sights by storm; marched victoriously upon Arlington; and finally advanced upon historic Concord, gathered its infatuations, and returned again to our college home ! Enrolled as upper classmen, we ceased to cherish our ambition in class athletics, satisfied with our early supremacy in this line and with furnishing so high a grade of material to the various college teams. Now that we have reached the turning point in our college life, satisfied with this, dissatisfied with that, having braved the turmoil of the sportive half of our under- graduate life, let us turn a leaf, and commence our preparation for our future life, cor- recting our past faults and mistakes, and thus raising our present educational standing to a grade which will fittingly compare with that of our earlier athletics.
