Hence this short account of its christening. When the plan for publishing an annual was complete and put into execution, the editors began casting about for a suitable name — one that would carry with it associated significance and thereby express in a degree the full intent and purpose of the proposed volume. After considerable research and cogitation Savitar was selected because we liked the size and sound of the v ' ord, and because its associations bore with them, as we thought, appropriately suggestive meanings. Savitar is the sun god of the Rig- Veda. The word contains the root jz , meaning to drive or stinuilate. Savitar, and its alternate in mythology, s rya, denote the splendor of the luminary and its irresisti- ble energy. Savitar is the god who sees all things and notes all tlie good and evil deeds of men. His power is irresistible. Age can not touch him, and nothing can withstand his will. To him are addressed the verses, " Holiest of All the eda: " " JlTay tl)c g,ol6cn=ciicb Saritar conic l)itl)cr, Sl iiiinij fortlj tjc rises from tl]c lap of tl)c aimi, . s ■is.

' - • p HE college annual, according to (I j the views of the present editors, should contain a picture of col- lege life. It should be the repository of accounts of interesting events, serious or otherwise. It is a means by which traditions and customs can be preserved, and should be one of the greatest factors in creating a full appreciation of our alma mater, and consequently a love for her. It should be a book which the senior may take away with him to recall in after years the memories of ' 96 and ' 97; a book that the freshman can read and learn of all the phases of college life. We do not pretend to have attained to this ideal. The growth and development of the annual in any school is gradual. We trust that this volume marks one step in advance in the evolution of the Savitar. We have tried to have all departments, clubs, and organizations represented, and in this we have succeeded fairly well. Even now, when the first page goes to press, we see where we might have done better, where wc have made mistakes which it is too late to correct ; but we submit this to the student corps feeling that their judgment will be fair and lenient, and that, if we have not been successful, they will at least appreciate what we have tried to do.

Academy as instructor. k w w ESSE, RICHARD HENRY, seventh president of the University of the State of Missouri, was horn in Lancaster county. ir- ginia, March i, 1S53. He was the youngest of six chihhcn, all of whom are now (1S96) living. His hirthplace was the old Ball farm, the birthplace and early home of Mary Ball, VVashmgton ' s mother. This place is still owned liy President Jesse and two members of his family. He was prepared for college at Hanover Academy. . " r -: -. Thence he went to the Univer- sity of Virginia, graduating with distinction in 1S75. The next year he returned to Hanover chicHy in French and mathematics. For the next two years he was principal of an endowed high school in Princess Anne, Maryland. This position he resigned, to the regret of everybody, intending to return to the University of ' irginia and fit himself for the bar. But in the summer of 1S7S the trustees of the University of Louisiana wrote to the University of Virginia asking that a dean be recommended for the academic department. The pro- fessors in the University of Virginia, to whom was addressed the request for a dean, united in recommending Mr. Jesse, without his knowledge or consent. Unanimously elected, he gave up with some reluctance the idea of practicing law, and determined to gi e his entire time and energy to the upbuilding of his department in the University of Louisiana. He achieved great success in building up the academic department, which finally absorbed all the resources of the institution. After the consol- idation of Tulane University and the University of Louisiana Mr. Jesse was offered the choice between the chairs of Latin and Greek. He chose that of Latin, and was made senior professor thereof in the fall of 1884. He was thoroughly tired of administrative work, and determined thenceforth to devote his life entirely to teaching and to scholarly research. This design he pursued for seven years. Without his knowledge or consent, a distinguished profes- sor at the University of Virginia recommended him as president of the University of Missouri. Many friends joined in urgmg his name, and on December 19, 1S90, he was offered the position by the unanimous vote of the trustees. On January 19, 1S91 , he finally accepted the position. In the following June he was duly inaugurated. On July i he took his seat as president. IIis success in his new position is known to all. w fix fl JllC.tUS OF AVAVEIUIC DEPARTJUKyTS. s ■ C ' (0 u ill -:s Academic ' ' ' iTi i: ; ' - iir Vv Acaaemic l)ead$ or Departments, ¥¥¥¥¥ (0 JOHN CARLETON JONES, A.

Since the invention of his vocation 11 hy our friend Homer, no age has been complete without an ■11 historian. There is an innate curiosit)- in man ' s composition by which each individual is constantly trying to unearth facts of moment in his neighbor ' s existence. And, as for himself — what is it that impels the proud emperor to leave a peaceful realm and glut his ferocity by the overthrow of an adjoining kingdom. ' ' Why is it that men so often spurn the smiles of beauty, forsake the haunts of fortune and glory in the clash of steel and the thunder of artillery. ' ' Why is it? Thirst for fame — immortal fame: and fame, diagnosed, consists in having your name scrawled upon vile paper by viler ink by some vain-glorious biped termed historian. However, this boon obtained, and l)oth powerful potentate and humble mechanic will die happy, and in post-mortem realms will smile with ecstatic joy to think that their name or their deeds will be flaunted in the face of posterity with pride or adoration. Under such circumstances the historian becomes an important factor among his fellows. And I, in attempting to assume that role, recognize the immensity of my responsibility, and with trembling timidity under- take to chronicle the valiant deeds of the men and women of M. S. U. ' 98. I am convinced that the fame eternal or direst oblivion to some fifty stalwart sons of toil hangs pendant upon the fickle impulse that drives my pen across this sheet. Within the ink drops glistening from my quill is concealed a mighty power, and it makes me sad to think that upon the ultimatum here e.xpressed rests the weal or woe, the future glory or disgrace, of mv honorable contemporaries. Juniority is per se a guaranty of rare merit. As a matter of course, every man and maid deserves to have his name here enscrolled in huge hieroglyphics. Where, then, to draw the line, is a problem of momentous anxiety to the writer, to say nothing of the luckless fellows whose good report lays in the balance. Filing into recruiting quarters at an early date we were duly and impressively sworn in for another year ' s hard campaigning, and right well have we bent to the task. Knowing our pre-eminence in learned lore, we have lost no opportunity of im- pressing upon the bright lights at whose feet we sit for instruction, the immensity of our intellects. Hellenic deciphering has been like chaff in a whirlwind before our mighty onslaught. Roman linguistics, with all its logic, has been mere child ' s play. Psychology. ' We have propounded philosophy, terse, turbid, and of such transcendental nov- elty that the scientific world stands aghast. Education. ' The happy youth who, in the future, finds himself pleading the approval of our pedagogical smile must tread untried paths. In fact, we have found no ologies and isms of sufficient weight to forestall the exuberance of our effervescent craniums. In the forensic arena we shine like dia- monds of the first water. On the athletic field our iron muscles baffle all aspirants. In the army we sit enthroned, while the rank and file would be practically nil without us. The journalistic muse finds a safe retreat within our fold, while in society our blooming countenances find a welcome at every portal. Our agriculturists have no field mice in their pockets. Our engineers already propose ideal ships en route to the moon, and bridges that will span infinity. Our ladies ! Ah, those damsels. Where the thoughtbound hall that would exclude them. ' Where the royal banquet they would not grace. ' Our members hail from the four corners of this great commonwealth, while one finds bivouac on the prairies of the Lone Star state, one in far off Arizona, and one in that land " where rolls the mighty Oregon. " Our private conclaves have been rare, but rich. Ponderous questions have there been decided, and huge bits of eloquence have there been noncha- lantly cast to the winds. Do not think, dear reader, that all this is mere articulate wind. I doubt if Sallust, Livy, Polybius, or Don Quixote himself ever had more stalwart heroes to extol than I. Ours is not a genius that by some hyperbolical outburst of enthusiasm has snatched immortality from some accidental catastrophe. No, ' tis a steady flame. " O wad some pow ' r the giftie gie us To see oursers as others see us?

Far from it. We have received our full quota of Hunks. We have been entirely susceptible to the sirens of flattery and the furies of ambition that assail every participant in the maelstrom of University life. Some of us are yet meekly dissecting that inevitable crawfish and ruminating upon the sad irony of drowsy days in freshman existence. Others are sti cudgeling their brains to extract the enviable ' -seventN ' " from the maze of trigonometrical functions. But say the worst of us you can. What is history, anyway, but a grand libel upon humanity. The more villianous we become the more fit for historical manuscripts we are. Among the pernicious vocations adopted by these Juniors my only trouble is to determine the most adept in his calling. Dewey is evidently the most man of all. C. M. Jackson is our scientist, than whom the University can pro- duce no greater. Smith is our poet. Erato must have brewed an enormously vile concoction for him. Barnes is our oracle of war. Majors, coxetous as usual, holds lock and key guarding the portals to our maiden ' s affections. And Sam Banks! " IIow he thrusts his fists his head above, and still insists he ' s not in love. " Sally Jones defies comment. Zollic Gray, — may Gabriel forget to wind his bugle if we forget our Zollie. But enough. " What is histor) ' , " said Napoleon, ' ' but fables agreed upon. " Fables and falsehoods .occupy nearly the same ground. St. Peter rec- ognizes no prevaricator. If, then, liy rare good fortune your humble historian has not already been consigned eternally to the realms of per- dition, he will cease to tempt further the mercies of divine proxidence.

BEASLEY - _ - Serojeant-at-Arms Sketcl) of Class of DinctpDine II, YES, I suppose it is our duty to contrilnite the history of the great and mighty Sophomore class to the pages of the Sa ' i- TAK. We like to see college enterprise flourish, and we do not wish to disappoint the expectations of the anxious public. And besides, if we all keep our health, we shall produce another history far more fitting to adorn the pages of the Savitai! of ' 9S than the few lines which we now generously donate to our amiable friends, the juniors. Perhaps it is not well known that our class is organized, but it is. We thought of becoming incorporated, but the attorney failed to report. Once or twice, or maybe thrice, we have convened in mass meeting for the avowed pur- pose of transacting the business left over from the previous meeting. And should you consult the records of the class you would find first among these items of business the adoption of our class color — scarlet. Some people, by gross perversion of the truth, would spread broadcast the opinion that we wear plebeian red. The chief of the physics de- 24 partment, unfeeling scientist, once made use of our ribbon and jiersonal appearance to illustrate his remarks upon the contrast of colors. We also adopted a class cap, not in imitation of the junior lawyers who tried to identify themselves with the leage of American wheelmen, but to distinguish ourselves from the learned seniors. We succeeded toler- ably well. The taking of our class picture was the most important consideration of the year. After many discussions and grave delibera- tions, c concluded to ask a photographer to let us pose for him. And although the juniors persuaded the Weather Bureau to annoy us shamc- fulh ' , our committee finally circumvented the allied fdices and obtained the loan of a clear day and the front steps of Academic tiall for the purpose in hand. And so we posed. Perhaps it would also be well to state that some of our members made a desperate but ineffectual attempt to induce the class to give a reception. They had unlimited enthusiasm, and the list of proposed guests ranged from the faculty to the college girls, thence to the seniors and short-course agriculturists, and finally to the discipline committee; but all to no purpose; we -were not in a festive mood, and the class of ' 99 forever lost a brilliant oppor- tunity to establish a reputation for hospitality. Although we are from time to time involved in such trivial dis- putes, " domestic spats " as it were, we are now fighting a far more important battle. Some of us, though sorely wounded, are bravelj ' struggling on. It is for those who are reported " lost " that we mourn. So great is our sorrow and so sincere our sympathv that we appointed a committee on resolution which duly and according to law presented the following report: " In consideration of the fact that some of our brethren have been found wanting in the tests of sophomore ingenuity imposed by our respected tutors; and conscious of the fact that there is, after all, room for doubt whether or not their lot is not a better one ; be it therefore " AV-so zri , That it is the sense of the class of ' 99 to offer felicita- tions to our departed brethren, because of the hardships they have escape d ; and, at the same time, to extend words of condolence in that they can not join us in the few pleasures that obtain.

A good " settin " ' for a hen of ordinary size is seventeen ' ' eggs. The number is enshrouded in mystery — seventeen. It was known to the ancients as that number which augured most good to the craft that was manned by so many sailors. The seventeenth son was always looked upon by the father as one surely destined for fame. And so, since our story is one of seventeen Quacks (?) in embryo, let it be known at once that fate has decreed for them a won- drous, glorious destiny, a bright prospective life, and an easy and unbroken sleep when each one ' s fitful race is run. Behold them now in severalty when well nigh two vears have been spent in long and faithful " settin ' . " In the middle of the nest may be seen a strong and lusty German egg. Blocked round about he is by half a dozen other eggs of varying size and shape. To examine him with the unaided eye we see a round, short, thick shelled shiny thing; to look at him subjected to that awful aid to scrutiny, X-Ray, we see a sturdy black young chick, strong of will, slow of thought, and stub- born in his disposition. If he chirps it is to say such as, " ' ell, bro. vessor. I vas not rede dis lessons already yet dis morning no how. " He will, we predict, some day be a bold and dauntless bird of prey. Next we see a long and thin-shelled egg inside of which there is a chick that looks as doomed to hatch too young. His sight and smell are keen ; for numbers he seems to have you quite a taste, and so is surely learned in all the roots and yerbs, — how much of them will cure, how much won ' t kill, et cetera. Now opozyte we see a small young English bantam egg. This egg is of a pinkish hue. Therein is found a bristling, brave-voiced birdling. He noises quite some little, and when he does he makes a noise; he will say: " Well, sir, starch is albiiiiiLMi : let ' s ' ave a class meetin ' ; or I " c ' rd a tale like that m ' self, " and many more such stronsi; and boisterous rackets will he raise. Sitting on the outer side of this spacious nest — this nest most liber- ally endowed by broad and generous minded statesmen — is a big, rough, shaggy, colored egg, inside of which a kind of woodcock fowl doth sit. For ever and anon as other birds do speak he moves his pon- derous cranium to and fro as though he pecked at some dead peach tree limb. This (f)owl will some day be in many weighty consultations and well we know that he will surely look right wise. Another egg there is that seems to stand reared back upon its end — an egg that one would like to take and shake close to his ear. We view it with the powerful Ray. A tiny ducklet is encased — a ducklet, for he doth quack of men of high and low estate, and of a pony lost once in the wilds and which ' tis said he did not one time ride. And so this noble brood, of which the seventeenth is not less to be admired than the first, we know will pass their hatching time full strong and full of wind; that they will all be full-fledged quacks. And when thev each spread wings and sail out from the mater alma, we pray that they may sail o ' er all life ' s stony points and light but on the soft and downy ones — and requiescatyin pace. R. B.

Had 37 Pistoria l»caicorum ilnni exeuntis ¥ N a soft, sunny morning in tlie genial montli of September, witli eyes cast np unto the build- ings, and with easy sighs such as men do chaw in love, came the j ' outh and maiden. On this mornmg the weather was of that voluptuous autumnal kind which calls forth all the latent romance of a man ' s tempera- ment, filling his mind with music and dis- posing him to quote poetry while he gets out his class card. From the very external aspect of some of those who were wandering through the corridors of the University one would guess at once that they were bent on studying medicine. We shall begin the historv of this amiable but unfortunate class which was sent home at the tender age of one year with a combination of manly and delicate accomplish- ments. During the year we were fitted to shine in active life and to be a source of pride to the folks at home. Some members returned home earlier than was expected at the outset. Still they did it in good faith, and this was all that was required. This bit of experience was the pri))ia luce to some of the members, while to others it came somewhat later in the day. Having by this time gotten ourselves signed for work, the next thing in order was to find those to whom we were expected to recite. The first Solon to corral us was the Professor of Anatomy. From this time on we looked upon our career as hopeless. Our Professor of Anatomy, a great and good man, opened his lecture with a can opener, and brought forth a well-preserved skeleton upon which he at once began to expatiate. lie explained the word anatomy as meaning to " cut up through, ' ' and gave this as his reason why medical students ' •cut up " all through the entire course. He said we should get the Si best results from cutting up an organism, and for this purpose he recommended that we secure some good second-hand organisms. We found this to be a very difficult task and soon abandoned the search. In studying the anatomy of some organisms you will find it best done from the outside, as the griz .ly bear and the bull dog. lie explained how anatomists divide their subjects as well as their science into frag- ments, and admonished us to use every means possible to advance the cause of the science. So far as the indi itlual members are concerned I believe some will do so, but as for myself I should be very much displeased if I should form the habit of dissecting people, lest some day I might be called upon to dissect a friend for whom I had had in time past a very great attachment, or some creditor who at that time had an attachment for me. His rebus factis, we were expected to meet another one of our professors as soon as we could Hnd him. When we found him he informed us that he taught Physics, and immediately opened his lecture on the inclined plane near the top, and endeavored to explain its effects. In our coin-se we more than once bewailed the peculiar hardness of our fate. In the Biological department we were presented with a microscope. After five months of diligent research and study some members of the class had become so well acciuainted with the micro- scope and its attachments as to enable them to see their grades. Others did not progress so rapidly. This department was opened on the European plan, and charges made accordingly. The last department to enter, in order that we might be able to say we had made the rounds, was that of Chemistry. Our preceptor opened with a few hard-boiled facts, which he had lately brought from England concealed in a shawl strap. By being economical with them he had enough to last all year and to spare, as was demonstrated at the last examination. The crust having been broken in all departments, and also on some of the members, the next thing in order was work. This was gone at in a reluctant manner, but kept up with vehemence to the bitter end. Occasionally there was found, on the sidewalks and pavements, which led around buildings, small pieces of dissatisfaction, and imme- diately a class meeting would be called for the purpose of drafting resolutions and resolving, in a general way, that the medical fraternity ought to have (a) redress, as the suit it had brought with it had seen better days. On occasions of this kind one could hear noisy eloquence. Time went on as it usually does, and every member of the class felt that things were coming his way if he happened to be in the right place. It might as well be said here, and, by so doing, it will save someone else the trouble of saying it elsewhere, that the llrst year medics were a lot of bright boys, and I bope that at some future time the public may have the pleasure of reading an extract from the pen of some of them on the subject of " Deceased Fanna and Extinct Jokes, " showing how and when these early forms of bacteria lived. In making our choice of specialties, let us ever remember that eternal rest is a good one, and one in which a second treatment by us will hardly be necessary. There are a great many theories in medicine. One of the great drawbacks to the practice of medicine is that there is too great a margin between services rendered and money collected. The thrilling experience which accompanies the former will in a measure compensate for the latter. Let us as physicians bear in mind that wherever we happen to be we should always be on the point of going somewhere else. By so doing we will keep down any anger that might arise and also keep down our patients. These are the chief objects of every physician, and the " ' 99 " medics fully appreciate their importance.

The law student knows nothing at all in regard to the work accomplished by the medic, and even the academic students who are not candidates for the life certificate are wholly ignorant of the advantages and worth of the normal depart- ment. Students are often too exclusive in the selection of their studies; they specialize before generalizing, and are most sure to fail to appreciate the value of other work than what they are taking. The character and worth of the work in the normal depart- ment is not misunderstood by those taking it. That the normal work here should be better than the work of the other normal schools of the state is but natural when you realize that the whole Uni ersity serves as a preparatory school for the normal. And such it should be to insure the liest results of the normal graduates, for the theory of teaching must rest on psychology and be in harmony with the natural sciences. For the teacher to be successful, he must not only know how to teach, but he must first of all know something to teach. This is in accord with the views of the dean. Prof. J. P. Blanton. He is anxious to make the normal work wholly postgraduate. Let the student finish one of the academic coiuses and then take one year in practical teaching before he is granted the life certificate and then he will be more suc- cessful in the field of actual teaching. Indeed, this plan was tried this year. Classes were brought over from the public school and the mem- bers of the senior pedagogy took turn about in conductmg these classes. It is true the work was cut short on account of the difficulty in securing the children. The idea, however, is here and will be realized in the near future. There will be ten graduates this year, or one third the number of academic graduates. This shows the popularity of the department. All of the work done this year has had in ' iew practical as well as theoretical pedaejosry. A number of educational theories have been considered and the freest discussion on the part of the class has alwaj ' s been encouraged by the instructor. The Herbartian system of psy- cology is taken as the basis of the work and the theory of concentration of studies and relati e value of subjects taught arc considered as expounded by Rein, McMurry, and Rosencrantz. The field of inves- tigation and speculation is only limited by the desire and imagination of the student. This does away with all restraint and the perfect freedom guaranteed is one of the most pleasing features of the system of instruction. No student who expects to teach should miss this normal training. It will round up and polish off one ' s education, and then it brings one in touch with both nature and man. There is no other feature of the University that can be enjoyed at so small a sacrifice. To be a suc- cessful teacher you must first learn something of human nature antl sympathize with it. And to know something of teaching will aid you in becoming a real student. No one will ever have cause to regret the time spent in tliis department. The work is of no less value to tlie student who expects to follow certain ones of the other professions than the one who is preparing himself for a teacher. The department is gradually growing and within the next few years it will be the only normal school supported bv the state. l) fe l ct ° °6 ' ( " ' ' " ' 4 clKl) l cl) ' i Department « ' floriculture f fs 2tg ana mecDanic Arts » " i» ' i»; ' v »«tv l«». l1 3 ' |.ICCil.l 5;l ' •€)«® " 0 " ® " »® ' 0 " 0»0 " 0 " ®«0 " 0»0»(i)- ' ' •iS flSricultural Facultp ¥¥¥¥ (0 HENRY JACKSON WATERS, B.

E. course, and one each in the E. E. and M. E. courses. A high standard for entrance is required by the engi- neering department in mathematics and English. The candidate for entrance must also have two years of German or French. There is perhaps more work required in the four years ' course in engineering than in any other of the University ' . At the same time there is less divergence from the regular course of study — less opportunity for electives. The class of ' 97 has labored along steadily and earnestly through it all. The work at the carpenter ' s bench, in the machine s ' nop, and at the forge has been wrought with pleasure and profit. In the draught- ing room much skill has been displayed in drawing, shading, tinting, and designing. We have enjoyed the work that " trains the mind to the hand, and the hand to the mind, " where neither hand nor brain has been tasked to painful exertions. But in some of our other work there has not been that adjustment into steady and stable equilibrium of the forces arrayed against us. The old rock of jSIechanics has lifted its rough and rugged edges above the waves on which we have tossed for many days and nights, and it has required the utmost tact and ingenu- ity, the most efficient working and distribution of energy and power to escape a watery grave in hydrodynamics. At times we have experienced a considerable " loss of head, " due to the laws deduced in " Bernoulli ' s Theorem; " sometimes the " metaccntre " of our little boat has fallen below the center of gravity, producing an " upsetting couple. " Often have we labored far into the night; but by the light of the stars, whose infinite distances we have exhausted all combinations of numbers to express, we have sighted shore at last. It may be of interest to note very briefly the history of the mem- bers of the class of ' 97. The average age is twenty-four. Louis Hiawatha Burkhart, born in Jefferson county, Kentucky. Entered the University of Missouri, ' 87 ; graduated with the degree of Pe. B. in ' S9. Took up the course of mechanical engineering, ' 95. Before the close of school he was employed by a manufacturing com- pany at Warren, Pennsylvania, as draughtsman and designer. E. I. Rogers, born at St. Joe, Missouri ; graduated from the Cam- eron high school, and entered the C. E. course at the University, ' 93. He has the honor of being the youngest member of the class. William G. McMeekin, C. E., Higginsville, Missouri. Attend- ed school at William Jewell College, whence he came to the University in ' 93. Arthur Dunlap, C. E., hails from the " Gourd, " Miami, Mis- souri. A graduate from the high school, he entered the University in ' 93. Henrv H. Lotter, C. E., Moberly, Missouri. Entered the University in ' 92. He has gained considerable distinction as a first class student, and has attained a high rank in the military department. William Alvan Miller, Columbia, Missouri. A Boone county boy. Most of bis education has been obtained at the University. He belongs to the C. E. class. George Staikoff. Born in Merichleri, Bulgaria. Came to America in ' 91. Was assistant commissioner for Bulgaria at the World ' s Fair, ' 93. He is the only graduate in electrical engineering. T. J. RoDHOUSE, C. E. Graduated from the Mexico high school and entered the University in ' 93. He was awarded the honor of the Rollins scholarship in his junior year. Si( ' ifc C: S; C: t: i; i; S; fc fc C; ' Junior engineers. ¥ T the close of the session of ' 96-7, the engineering class of ' 9S bids farewell to their alma mater to spend their last vaca- tion — the shortest of all. The school of life keeps six days in a week and old Professor Experience knows no holidays — no vacations. Long and difficult has been the course that leads to the coveted " sheepskin, " but our tender shepherd obtains an abundant supply from the members of our flock that fall by the way- side. Mathematics, mechanics, and the deficiency committee have reduced our numbers until only ten are here to answer to the roll call of ' 97. K. H. Hansen is a native of Clay county, Missouri. He received his early training in the public schools of the county. Graduated from the Educational Institute at Kansas City in the spring of ' 93, and entered the sub-freshman class in electrical engineering at the Uni er- sity in September of the same year. Mr. Hansen graduated in Military Science and Tactics, June, ' 96, and is at present a second lieutenant in the battalion of cadets. Quiet and unassuming, he is known as the bachelor of the class. Carl Maughmeh, of the C. E. course, is another Clay county boy. He graduated at the Kearney high school in 1S90, after which he spent two years at William Jewell College, and entered the freshman class at the University in January, ' 95. Mr. Maughmer received his certificate in surveying June, ' 96. His favorite studies are mechanics and bridges. His peculiar maneuvers in the mechanics class have given him the name of the " Parrot. " E. H.Jones (better known as " Sallie " ) is from Nodaway county, Missouri. He received his early education in the public schools of Parnell, Missouri, and entered the sub-freshman class in the C. E. course at the University in September, ' 93. Played left half-back on the football team in ' 96. Graduated with distinction in Military Sci- ence and Tactics, June, ' 95. " Sallie " is the " magnet " of the physics class, an avowed advocate of " free silver, " and a walking directory for Columbia boarding houses. His partner and roommate is C. W. s-e 5 Hogan, Jr., of St. Louis, Missouri. Mr. Hogan is reported to have been found wandering in the streets of St. Louis about the year 1S74. He graduated from Christian Brothers College in ' 91, and for the next five years he " did " others for a living. Being persuaded to emigrate to Columbia in the fall of ' 95, he entered the E. E. course at the Uni- versity as a sophomore. Having signed a certificate of good behavior in March, ' 96, his consequent record is almost faultless. T. B. Maubut, C. E. ' 98, is from Barry county, Missouri. He was educated in the public schools of Cassville, Missouri, and entered the University as a sub-freshman in September, ' 93. He was a mem- ber of the Missouri Geological .Survey from 1S90 to 1S93, and was an assistant in mapping the survey during the summer of ' 96. Mr. Marbut is at present the Busi ness Manager of the ' 9S ,Sa ' itar. E. a. Cox hails from Scotland county, Missouri. He is a gradu- ate of Gorin College, and was for two years a teacher in the public schools of the county. He became a member of the freshman class in civil engineering at the University in September, 1S94. Mr. Cox was deputy county surveyor of Scotland county during the summer of " 93, and was assistant engineer in the sidewalk removal in February, ' 96. He is a charter member of the M. S. U. Debating Club. Present occupation — hunting for a girl. Chief amusement — running the calcu- lating machine. Frank L. Moore was born in Jasper county, Missouri, on Easter Sunday, 1S74. ( " Bad egg. " ) He graduated from the Carthage high school in the " Columliian Class ' ' of ' 93, and entered the Uni- versity as a C. E. freshman in the same year. Mr. Moore played left tackle on the second eleven of the M. S. U. " Tigers " during the season of ' 96, and is now a member of the board of directors of the Athletic Association. Lloyd Lewis, of Holt county, Missouri, is a junior electrical engi- neer. He graduated from the Oregon high school with honors in ' 93, and entered the freshman class at the University in the fall of ' 94. He was, for four years, deputy recorder of Holt county. Mr. Lewis is a graduate of the Missouri State Military School, and is now vice-presi- dent of the junior academic and engineering class. W. H. Turner is a Boone county boy and a graduate of the Cen- tralia public school. He came to the University in ' 93 and was enrolled as a sub-freshman in civil engineering. He was engineering editor on the Aj-gns staff in ' 95. Henry is a cum laude graduate in military and surveying and is the senior second lieutenant in the cadet corps. Photographer and wheelman. The writer of this sketch calls Boone county his home. Entered sub-freshman class of E. E. course in ' 91, taught in tlie pulilic schools for two years, returning to the University in ' 94. Received a certificate in the shorter E. E. course, and one in military, June, ' 96, and is a second lieutenant in the military department. Was vice-president of the sophomore class in ' 95-6. The lack of space forbids the enumeration of all the events of the class. The first year saw the completion of the Main Building, which was something of an engineering nature. A year later saw the greater portion of the soil on the campus moved and removed — also the side- walks. Grass and turnips grew promiscuously on this much-cultivated spot. Our close application to our studies, however, prevented any- thing more than a passing notice of such things. Our short narrative would be incomplete without recording the sad event of our history. During the vacation of ' 96, death called one of our favorite teachers. Kind, considerate and patient with his students, none knew him but to admire him. His keen interest in his chosen subject led him to overtax his already weak constitution, causing death by nervous prostration. The name of Dr. Wm.

Such men as Mairs and Conover were the pioneer patriots who moulded its early policies and estbalished the foundation on which it still stands. Turning from the dim past, we draw the curtain on the interval, and pause to consider its condition at the present. If I were asked to give reasons for its existence, I should repeat those given by societies of a similar nature — the advantages arising from debate and its attendant researches; the broadening of the mind by an interchange of thought on the many issues arising; and the gain of valuable experience in parliamentary practice. The year just closing has been a successful one. A membership of thirty permitted a distribution of duties to such an extent that no one was overburdened with work. In this way a record has been established in the amount and quality of work done. Almost every meeting has been characterized by some brilliant exhi- bition of wit, or oratory. In fact, the latter abounded at all times and in such profusion that at length it became a problem what to do with the surplus; in short, so serious an aspect did the question assume, it was finally suggested that we donate a few bales of it to the law depart- ment, but through a lack of patriotism the matter was allowed to drop. By so doing we probably lost an excellent opportunity for bequeathing to an endless posterity the honor of an act of matchless generosity. That the gift would have been appreciated is evidenced by the fact tliat visiting " mules " often tried to orate to us, and by those efforts wasted enough wind to have made a good sized Kansas cyclone. It must not be inferred from the above that we do not want visitors, for they are always welcome. We never fail to give them an oppor- tunity to talk. Even though they arrive just at the time of adjournment, we have invariably made it a point to return to the proper head of busi- ness and give them a ch.ince. From them we have learned much, the most important being that they love us and take a brotherly (or sisterly) interest in us, and that we have a good society. On certain occasions we were placed under obligations to parties for pointing out to us where we were " at. " One friend who had visited us often, startled us by stating that we sometimes showed enough " scrap " to make .statesmen. W. L.

Played exhibition games with University of Texas at following cities: One game at Monterey, Mexico, two games at City of Mexico, and one game at Laredo, Texas. 76 ft n w 3 ?;; 3-W wH Cl)c Cisers in a Foreign Cana IT NINE o ' clock, on the evening of De- _ cember lo, 1S96, the M. S. U foot- ball team started on the longest and most interesting trip ever taken by an Ameri- can college football team. Little idea did they have as they volleyed forth their farewell, Tiger, Tiger, M. S. U., of the great deeds tliey were destined to ac- complish or the awful con- sequences that were to fol- low their acts of youthful indiscretion. They left in those crowded wagons with their hearts pure from any malicious intent to overrun the law, and in the inno- cence of their souls sang sweet songs and stole Joe Hill ' s lunch to while away the tedious hours. The arrival at Rocheport was made at about 12 o ' clock. The great city was wrapt in sleep, and the only sound to be heard was the small voice of a violin urging the colored elite on to the dance, and as this was the only place offering shelter from the cold the attempt to enter was made. Alas, the shivering brutes had no invita- tion, and they were cruelly turned away. Even " Bain, " with his sore eye and headache and game leg, was thrown out bodily. In despair the Tigers sat down on the station platform trying to keep warm, but the ever ready ' ' Pheneas " White swiped four chicken coops from the express company and kindled a fire. Some of the others, who were sufficiently alive, made foraging expeditions, and thus kept everybody warm until the " Katy flyer " came and took them aboard. The next day was spent in various ways. Reading and discussing X e Dallas News ' opinion of their team and ours, but " Sallie ' s " time was occupied in losing his heart. He lost it to a little N. T. F. C. girl. Presideiu Athletic Association, ' 97-S. and he still cherishes a college uniform bntton and ribbon given him on that occasion. The first stop in Texas was made at Dallas. The team arrived there on the eleventh about 9 o ' clock p. m., and was met by Ben Thompson and a policeman. The boys were overjoyed at seeing the old veteran, and proceeded to worry the policeman for telling theni that they were not in the country. They were too tired for much running around, and soon got into their little beds. In the morning they saw something of the city, and in the afternoon played the Dallas game. The Tigers were victorious by 2S — o. It was a clean, fair game, and the Dallas team proved themselves thorough gentlemen. After the game the consultation about the Mexico trip was begun. Mr. Geo. A. Hill, of Austin, was the founder of the scheme, and he, with Mr. Harry O. Robinson, coach of the Texas University team, exposed the plan to the delighted Tigers. The team immediately and unanimously decided to go. Saturday evening the Tigers went to the show and next morning, Sunday, left for Austin. All went peacefully except Hal Conley and Ad Hill, who refused to go without Mr. Howard. They were finally induced to leave him, however, on promise that they should soon see him again. On the way to Austin " Phineas " and Ben Thompson had a good time throwing rocks from the car platform, and all tried the Mexican dulces and their other dainties. Some of the voliani beasts were uncom- fortably surprised to see a man who had been shot through the jaw, and Tucker stayed under a seat until he knew he was safe in Austin. Sunday afternoon and evening were spent ia lounging about the hotel and meeting the Texas team and making other acquaintances. On Monday the game between U. T. and M. S. U. was played and resulted in a victory for M. S. U. by a score of 10 — o. The game was slow and uninteresting, in spite of the fact that it was a battle for supremacy by the best football talent of two great states. On the evening following the game the University German Club entertained the strangers with a most delightful dance. The entertain- ing powers of the voung men, together with the exceptional charms of the young ladies, made it one of the most pleasant affairs of the kind it has ever been the good fortune of the scribe to attend. Sallie, as usual, was the big dog of the occasion. On Tuesday, the fifteenth, the team moved from the Driskill Hotel to the Avenue Hotel, and went under the management of Mr. Hill. The change of headquarters was accomplished in the morning and in the afternoon the city was captured in earnest. The boys, in small 7S groups, isitcd, at least once, the Capitol luiikliriLj, the University, the Insane and the Deaf and Dumb Asylums. The young ladies were not left out and they were the chief attraction during the stay in Austin. llall, however, neglected them. There was much wailing and despair among the tender maidens, but after Hall had once been kissed by the beautiful old lunatic at the asylum he couldn ' t slay away from them. Sally sang to them, though, and that appeased them. On Wednesday, the fifteenth, two memorable events took place. The Tigers had their pictures taken and played the Deaf and Dumb Asylum team. The score was for the Tigers by 39 — o, but the game was much more interesting than that would in- dicate. The dummies played well, but they were too small and did not know enough about football. The following day the team con- tinued its victorious march by moving to San Antonio. The Tigers showed their tender-heartedness by paying the way of a boy whom they attempted to smuggle through by putting a sweater on him. The attempt came near succeeding, but the conductor was too careful and the bum had to get off or get some one to pay his way. San Antonio and the ever-to-be-remembered Hotel de Beefsteak received the travelers at 8 p. m. and shortly after this the gladiators started out to see the city by night. People made so many remarks about different members that they went back to the hotel, and long after all had gone to bed Tucker staid up consulting the looking-glass as to whether he did look like a freak or not. Next morning all saw the sights but Patterson. He seemed to be satisfied to stay at a Mexican and Indian curiosity store. Some of the team wondered whether the attraction was the curiosities or the pretty keeper of the store. The other members of the team, however, were much more active and they became so interested in exploring this wonderful old city that J- JtAiVK M. I ' ATTKUaOS. Coach ' C)6. 79 they hardly took time for the game in the afternoon, in which they defeated the San Antonio team by a score of 29 — o. With a sigh of regret San Antonio was left on the same evening and the team once more went to Austin, but in the time remaining before the start to Mexico was made affairs passed so pleasantly that this sorrow was forgotten. Each member of the team attempted something big. Bill Hill beat a fellow out of his girl. She couldn ' t resist Bill ' s bald head. English and Thompson disappeared and came up again two days later, saying that they had been down the Colorado one hundred and eighty miles and had walked back. Of course everybody believed them. ]5uck Blanton fell in love with a tall blonde, and he seems to be still under her spell. The Austin Y. M. C. A., seeing some of the wild notions of the Missourians, conceived the idea that their team might defeat the Tigers, and got beaten about 3i — o for their pains. Many other things these frolicsome beasts did, but in charity to the reader a veil will be placed over them and we will pass on. On Tuesday final preparations for leaving were made, and early Wednesday morning the thirty trained athletes from Texas and Mis- souri turned toward Mexico. The trip was made on an excursion train, and there were about a hundred sightseers besides the football teams. The crowd was soon acquainted all around, and when they arrived at Laredo everything was settled down. Here the money in the crowd was changed and soon afterward most of the excursionists felt for the first time the peculiar thrill that is present when one passes out of the direct protection of the glorious stars and stripes. As the train passed slowly over the Rio Grande the party with uncovered heads bade good-by to our beloved standard, waving majestically from the custom house. These patriotic feelings were soon broken into by the order to open baggage for the custom officers, and as soon as this formality was over the start into this wonderful old country was made. The party was now traveling on the Mexican National, a narrow gauge, that is one of the two great roads to Mexico City. The train consisted of five Pullmans, two dining cars, a mail car, and an obser- vation car at the rear. Two Pullmans were assigned to the football teams, though they were supposed to use only the lower berths. There was some scheming as to how two could get into these little berths two feet wide, and how Ad. Hill and Conley slept in one is an acrobatic feat known only to themselves. These little troubles did not seem to bother anybody much, and as soon as it was known that they were at Monterey some of the more active members of the party went to hear the Christmas eve services at the cathe- (li;il. Most of the p;iitv, liowevcf, rcmiiined in the sleeper for the night, ;in(l saw this real old Mexican town next clay. All rose early next morning and in trying to see everything many amusing mistakes were made. • ' Phineas " looked at the .Saddle mountain and started to go to it. He came back two hours later saying that the mountain could outrun him because the farther he walked the farther away it was. .Scandalous l cn came near having a fight for looking at a man. In tr3ing to be polite he said " Good Cod " insteatl of " Good Day, " the expressions being something alike in .Spanish. Brandon wondered why thev didn ' t put Gen. Taylor ' s immense old cannons somewhere for fear people would steal them. .Several of the boys were only restrained from taking oranges from the trees in the plaza by a wholesome dread of the Mexican prisons. The many long tramps of the morning made the players all so tired that the game in the afternoon was not very spirited. The Mexi- cans did not know that it was not a good game, however, and they seemed to enjoy it very much. After the game the two teams came near being arrested at the bail house because the keeper did not understand his own language. Sin- nett talked with him awhile and taught him some .Spanish and then the trouble was over. This was Christmas night and the whole party was quiet and thoughtful. The young ladies and some of the young men gave a con- cert. The latest songs were not on the programme but thev sang the old songs of childhood. These songs took all back to their homes in spirit and removed some of the regret of spending this holy dav so far avvav from home. TOM .SUA ir .i.v. Captain ' q6. Two days after this, on the twenty- seventh, the party had arrived at the end of its journey, Mexico City. The stay here was from Sunday until Thursday and very little of this time was wasted. Besides the time taken for the two games, which were merely exhibition games played by mixed teams, the teams were always on the go. The experi- ences of this short time will never be forgotten. Some of the places and the time spent there are very clearly remembered. Among these are the Hotel Humbolt, the waiters and meals, how to find the way to the hotel after midnight, the Mexi- can beggars, how Phineas and the little Mexican had their pictures taken, what Tom Shawhan felt when he saw bathers in the open air pools in the city with no protec- tion but the blue sky and the repub- lic of Mexico, how English and Scandalous Ben had a Mexican swindler arrested, how Brandon wondered why he could not call on the Mexican young ladies, how all the American ladies in the place came to the train to tell Joe Hill good-by, how Patterson got a fifty cent opal for a dime. These and many other incidents filled those pleasant days and it was not until some time after the train was on its way back that the realization of the greatness of the trip came. Even then the pleasure of the excursion was not all over. On New Year ' s eve the party saw the old year out with a dance in the dining car and after that, until far into the morning, the jolly crowd sang songs and made speeches for their own delectation. liesides this the beautiful scenery and trading with the Mexicans were just as interesting as they had been on the way down, and these together with everything that could be devised on board the train helped to pass away the time until Laredo was reached again. AD.IM HILL. Ciipt. j7 Team. Here it was necessary to wait nearly twenty-four hours for a train and in tlie meantime a football game was played and one evening was spent at the Laredo Club, where the Missouri bowling team defeated the Texas bowling team, both being organized on the spot. Next day the Missouri team started home and arrived in Columbia at four o ' clock on Monday, January 4, 1S97. In the twenty-five days they were absent they trav- eled nearly six thousand miles and met with nothing but success in all their undertakings. Wliile their conduct was not at all times strictly decorous, they were always gentlemen and were ever mindful of the duty they owed to the school and their state. S,!

Ji. yHATEVER we may think concerning the theory of evolution we will all concur in the opinion that it is a very fascinating theory, and one very convenient for dealing with spiritual as well as with physical organizations. Regarding our own University Y. M. C. A. in this light, we may look upon its protozoan period as being in the days when the Rev. LL. D. ' s of the state appeared before the board of curators at the occurrence of every vacancy in the faculty in order to claim the right of their respective sects to fill the chair. It isn ' t strange that Missouri ' s sons coming from homes dominated by the influence of men who valued denominational lines more than talent, should be slow to exalt Christ above man-made creeds, and to unite together against sin ; nor is it to be wondered at that many had a disrespect for religion and were always disposed to make it known. Christianity was very unpopular. Hazing was the order of the day and newcomers often fared badly. In one instance an unsuspecting farm boy from Kansas fell in with a band of students, among whom were a couple of military officers who posed as professors, gave him a physical examination and had him study the catalogue for a week, after which he barely passed. This over, and he being a poor boy, they gave him a letter which he was to carry to Mr. Oppenheimer who would (as they thought) assist him from the Oppenheimer Aid Fund. When the letter was opened, it read as follows: " Mr. Oppenheimer: Take this fool, kill him, and get him out of the way. " The above young man when once in school was among the best in his class. This is but one instance out of many which might be mentioned, and some even worse concerning Missour i boys, but a fellow-feeling forbids our speaking here. In keeping with such conduct was the habit so prevalent in those days among the students of rising up and taking holidays whenever they saw fit to do so. On such occasions, headed by the band they would march through town yelling and blowing tin horns ; would visit the female colleges, make speeches, and finally return to the campus where the) ' used their endeavors to keep what few students were so disposed from attending classes. It is needless to urge after all this that those were not altogether without ground who regarded the Univer- sity as a " nest of infidelity, " and a fit place for the wrecking of young lives. Yet the day came for the beginning of better things. Education enlarged the mind and heart. Sin forced the suggestion that " Gideon ' s Band " be marshaled for battle; and in the spring of 1S90, by the aid of the state committee an organization was effected with Harry Chapman as president. The next year witnessed the attempt at a number of reforms which met with considerable opposition, especially the effort made to check a widespread tendency toward drunkenness which occurred in the military encampment of that year. Near the close of this year the first step was taken toward securing a home for this vigor- ous child of light. The third year was marked by a number of conversions and prac- tically the final battles were fought against hazing and contempt of University authority in taking holidays. During the fourth year a piece of property was bargained for and a " lecture course " established. Bible study also made some progress. The fifth year excelled all others in the number of conversions. Bible study was brought to the front and a missionary library was pro- vided at an expense of fif ty dollars. Noteworthy in the next year is the marked decrease in indebted- ness on the property formerly purchased. Other lines showed a healthy gi ' owth. Following this came a year which closed with much planning for the next. And now we are about to close the eighth cycle of our existence. Perhaps no year has opened with a gloomier outlook and has closed with a brighter prospect than this one. For the first time has the association employed a general secretary. More money has gone through its hands and greater improvements have been made than ever before. Everything points upward. Growth has been steady and vigorous, and there is much to encour- age one as he contemplates this rapid evolution. However, perfection is not yet attained. Other reforms are needed, and spiritual upbuilding must go on until every phase of college life is sanctified and hallowed by Christian influence. Cribbing in classrooms and in examinations is a curse which needs to receive a black eye, and it is to be hoped that Mr. Cheat will ere long be compelled to harness his asses and drive out of town. Simul- taneous with this will come a nobler, truer, Christlier manhood, a more exalted citizenship, and a freer country. G. D. E. •03 y. ui. c. fl. Officers 1896 97 MYRTLE KNEPPER - - . .

HE work of the Young Women ' s Christian Association for the iii(Sf, . year now closing has been in many respects very satisfactory. To the faithfulness of the devotional committee has been due, in large measure, the success of the weekly bible meetings which have been devoted to the systematic study of the Gospel of St. Luke. Joint missionary meetings have been held monthly with the Y. M. C. A. Dr. Wharton of Baltimore, Dr. Moore of the Bible College, Rev. Winders and President Jesse have at different times during the year addressed the association. Miss Emma Burgess, state secretary of Y. W. C. A. work has been with us twice during the year. Her visits are always helpful and are appreciated by the association. The joint receptions of the Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. are among the enjoyable social functions in University circles. At a meeting held for that purpose May S, the following officers were chosen for the coming school year. MARIE WOLZ ....

Debating Club was not founded in the good old days before the war, nor does its fame rest upon the glorious deeds of departed heroes. Its origin is of recent date, and its success is due to the hard work of students now living. The Debating Club was organized September 28, 1S95. The purpose of the Club as expressed in the preamble, is: — " To encourage compo- sition, to acquire facility in debate, to encourage research into questions of the day, and to promote freedom of thought. " During its short history the Club has performed its work with a zeal and enthusiasm that has won for itself the respect of the other societies, the admiration of the student corps, and the good will of the faculty. It has the honor of participating in the first interstate debate in the history of our University. A year ago the Club met the Univer- sity of Arkansas in a debate at Fayelteville, Arkansas, and bore away a handsome banner with the two Universities engraved upon it, as a trophy of its victory. Arrangements are about completed for a second debate with the same University. The question for debate is — " Resolved that the railroads of the United States should be owned and operated by the Central Government. " Missouri defends the negative side. The following speakers have been selected: ist speaker, J. F. Conran, 2d speaker, J. S. Mclntyre, 3d speaker, J. P. Winters. The well-known ability of the speakers makes another victory for Missouri almost certain. The Club has before it a bright future. It has passed the critical period of its existence and has dispelled all doubts of its stability and success. The debating spirit in the University is growing strpnger, and we herald the day when intersociety debates will take the place of the out-of-date declamatory contests. In this movement the M. S. U. Debating Club is the pioneer. VV. C. II. . . 109 t l)eu) era Debatins Club members A. J. WILLIAMS, President. C. O. JENKINS, Vice-President. C. E. HOCKADAY, Secretary. A. J. WILLIAMS, Treasurer. M.

One school year has been the length of its exist- ence, but if we mistake not, its future is assured. The raisoii d ' etre was the neglect by the literary societies of long standing in the Univer- sity, of the most important part of literary work — the debate. After running the gauntlet of the committee on students ' organi- zations and going through several red tape performances, a room was secured, Horace emploj ' ed, and the New Era organized. The number of members was limited to eighteen, six of whom were to speak each night on regular debate, and all not on the regular debate must speak in the general discussion. The New Era ' s members have been limited to no class or depart- ment, but those were chosen who it was thought would take interest in discussing the questions of the day and who weie men of good standing in University requirements. Sophomores, seniors, and lawyers compose the make-up, some of whom, we venture to predict, will be heard of in the future as leaders in public life. Enthusiasm and energy have characterized the exercises, and the speeches of the disputants have uniformly evinced originality and research. In order to give vim and spirit to literary activity in the University, the New Era decided to inaugurate a series of joint debates with the other societies, which gives great promise of both pleasure and profit. t l»artin Club Court Officers OLIVER W.

Killam; minutes of previous l meeting read and approved. Passed to head of miscellaneous J? lis business. Mr. Member rises and ' II pays a tribute to the record of the court in the following words: " Mr. Chairman — The law class of ' 98 has many reasons to be proud, and not least of these is the organization, from members of that august body, a moot court which proudly terms itself ' The Martin Court of the University of the State of Missouri. ' This court, as regards its functions, is fashioned after the club courts of Harvard and t of Columbia College. It is the first organization of the kind in this university and a review of its history will not be uninteresting. " As you doubtless remember, the evening of the 35th of January, 1S96, was very cold, and the wind uttered fearful hov ' lings as it sped its wild way along almost deserted streets. But despite the weather, twelve juniors assembled in Killam ' s room. Their purpose was to agree upon some plan whereby their daily increasing knowledge of the law could be applied in a manner pleasing and profitable to themselves and not offensive to the public. It was unanimously considered best to organize a court. Accordingly articles were at once drawn up and adopted, and for our officers we chose as president, Guy A. Thompson, as secretary, Eugene P. Gum, as treasurer, E. L. Shepherd, and as an executive committee, Halstead, Lyons, and Shepherd. Mr. Chair- man, it is a fact evident to all that not every enterprise proves a success, but thus far ours has been. The court has convened bi-monthly and at every term cases have been tried of such import and moment as to solicit from the attorneys such powerful and persuasive eloquence as would arrest in silent, admiring wonder, the passing shades of Demos- thenes, or Cicero, or Chatham, or our own Webster. Nor has our ad- vancement been confined to oratory, for we have learned many lessons of value in the waging of our amicable wars. We have learned that adversity, though like a toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in its head ; that we find in proportion as we seek, and that the seeking sometimes takes us over stony roads ; that the prize, though with difficulty reached, is all the greater for the labor it has cost. I say that these and many other lessons whose principles are as eternal, have been brought home to us in our court, and that they have been and will continue to be a source of profit to us in many ways. Then, Mr. Chairman, to-night before we quit this hall, for the last time as junior lawyers, we should recall how deeply indebted we are to those who have worked so diligently and patiently with us during the past year. We well know how pleasant and profitable has been our association with them and how fondly we will ever hold their memories. I ask that each member of this court be furnished with a cup. [The cup-bearer performs his duty]. I now propose three toasts: the first to him whose name our banner bears, our honorable dean, Alexander Martin, may his days yet be many and every day a happy one. [Toast is drunk and three cheers are given]. The second to Judge Lawson, may his days yet be many and every day a happy one. [Toast is drunk and three cheers are given.] The third to Judge Yantis, may his days yet be many and every day a happy one. " The toast is drunk, cheers are given and after individual pledges of good fellowship the court adjourns to convene September 30, 1S97. .i X vis • Union Citerarp Socktp roHiidetl J itne 11, 1S43.

MISS WATSON and MISS DIX, Critics. HE Union Literary Society this year has passed into a second childhood. Not the second childhood of senile weakness, Init a fresh, lusty infancy giving promise of vigorous maturity in a feu ' years. It is useless to deny that literary society work has decayed of late. Alumni, revisiting the assembly which bears the name of that band whose badge they were once so proud to wear, and seek- ing the hall where first their voices were heard in declamation or debate, find but a little number collected in a small, bare room, in which the only relic of happier days is the tattered old banner with its hope-giving motto. They grieve and wonder at the change, and yet they often fail to see elements of strength hidden in this seeming weakness. It is by comparison with our competitors and our contemporaries that our rela- tive strength or weakness can be determined. When other societies have been compelled to adjourn because of " no quorum, ' ' visitors coming to the U. L. hall have found a full attendance and an interesting program. " 3 When strangers have inquired where were to be found good debates and interesting spealcers, outsiders have directed them here. We have much to be proud of in our contest records. We have taken honors wherever we contested. In the preliminary intercollegiate oratorical contest we received both prizes, Mr. Guy Thompson taking first place, and Mr. C. L. Price, second. In the Shakespearean we received an honor and a half, Mr. Reverdy Gordon having been awarded first place and Mr. Geo. English having tied for third. At the present writing the intersociety contest has not yet been held, but we have great hopes for success, our representatives having been selected after a closely fough t preliminary contest in the society. Much greater interest has been added to the program by the practice of inviting men prominent in the University or the town to give short talks on live topics every Saturday night. Among the most interesting talks were those given liy Professors Pickard, Loeb, and Blanton, and Mr. Walter Williams of the Columbia Herald . We have held a dignified and worthy place among the organizations of the University. We were challenged to debate by the New Era Debating Club. We accepted the challenge and selected contestants, but the New Ere contestants, after some delay, withdrew under the plea of lack of time. The presidents for this year have been Messrs. C. L. Price, G. H. English, and G. Huggins. Mr. Huggins was unanimously elected to serve a second term, and under his able administration the society has made great progress. It is useless here to review the past. All men know what she has been. But looking to the future we hope and predict for our society a prosperity, not only beyond that of her contemporaries, for she has that now, but one beyond her own past prosperity, and that will be great indeed. 1 flthenaean_£ ociet! ;s Foiliiilril 1.S47.

Gray was appointed delegate to attend the annual meeting of the Federation of Graduate Clubs, at Johns-Hopkins, Decem- ber 29 and 30. The Graduate Club of the University of Missouri was elected to membership in the Federation. The purpose of the Club is to promote graduate study at the University and to bring graduate students into closer relationship to one another. Monthly meetings are held, at which members of the faculty read papers. Prof. Raymond Weeks gave an interesting and instruc- tive talk on Experimental Phonetics, and Prof. J. C. Jones gave a most entertaining account of Student Life at a German University. Students who are doing actual graduate work, are eligible to full membership, and all graduate students, resident here, may become associate members. Such a club can not but promote graduate work at the University, and in time its strength will measure the interest in higher study at the University. l»enibcrs Mary J. Barnett II. Harris G. H.

The object of the society is to promote the study of philosophy at the University, and to foster the philosophical culture of the students, especially of those who are members of the society. Weekly meetings are held, at which some member reads a carefully prepared paper, which is afterwards freely discussed by those present. The papers during April were, " The Object as Mediator, " by Francis P. Daniels, " The Metaphysical Element in Modern Psychology, " by Miss Lalla Rookh Rogers, and " Locke ' s Theory of Knowledge, " by H. A. Smith. The meetings have proved of much profit to the members, and the society is one which the university needs and should foster. Prof. Frank Thillj ' is an honorary member bj ' the constitution of the society. The membershijj is restricted to students who are doing, or who have done, advanced work in philosophy. % i) ' (i)-i) ' (i) ' i) ' (t) ' (fe( m ' ' ' (B ' W ' j " j ' y3J " y j ' j ' j ' ' Siiom •cs;« cixlKixM)- fl Sorts Seine £ate jldaitions to Cjterature Was I Pushed, or Did I Fall ?

Nestled by ferns and o ' ermantled by lilies and violets mingled, Lies in the peaceful shade of an oak tree, the grave of a maiden. Singing adown the valley, a carelessly caroling brooklet Gurgles over its roots and babbles over the pebbles ; But in the shade below in the holy hush of its shadows, Sleeps the slumberous wave, and the weary waters are silent. Hearken now as the oak tree, in vibrant, hoarse lamentation, Tells its sorrowful tale of woe, while evermore with it Chimes and solemnly mingles the mournful murmur of waters. Hearken now to the tale, thus told, of Almeda Iddesleigh. H. " Peeping through mouldering leaves, the spoils of myriad autumns, ' Mid unrolling fern-balls and frail anemones, blossoms In the quiet shade of my sheltering branches a lily. From it merrily murmurs the tawny bee, honey-laden ; Rests in its snowj- chalice a pearly tear of the morn-dew. But ere time had tinted and tinged its snowy white mantle, Wandering by the meandering stream, a maiden came straying. Pleased I pleasantly murmured, but soon a sobbing and sighing Rose from my moaning boughs, as she plucked the lily I cherished. From ray shaggy bark she tore the mosses and lichens. Made her a sylvan couch beside the low-tinkling brooklet, Gathered for her pillow the downy catkins of osiers. Softly sleeps the maiden and in her hand is the lily. in. " Singing the rivulet creeps through minty cresses, and mshes Gurgling over my roots to the pool below in the shadows. Over its mirror serene the film- winged dragonfly darteth; In it inverted appear the majestioal trees of the forest. Quiver my happy leaves in tremulous eestaey thrilling; Stir my sombre branches, swinging in mazes of music, — Deep symphonious strains, the aery anthems of forests: Louder the melody surges in mighty, hoarse undulations. — Lo, a sudden crash! From yonder age- weakened maple, Headlong, downward, a limb falls athwart the breast of the maiden. Mournfully moans the brook, and the echo dies in the distance. IV. " As, when the sun in summer is setting beueath the horizon. Turning to roseate hues the blue of the airy abysses, Crimsoning all the clouds that dreamilj ' float in the ether, — Slowly the splendor palls, and the silvery glow of the moonlight Floods the earth with mellower sheen ; the stars of the heaven Glimmer like golden bees from the thymy meads of Hymettus, Clustering innumerous ' round tlieir hives with honey anointed: Even so slowly and silently over the face of the maiden Steals a holier pallor, revealing the soul in its pureness. V. " Why, O feather- ferns, did the cold earth take to her bosom Both of my flowers, my beautiful flowers, the lily and maiden? Why are the woodland gi ' asses and lilies, with violets mingled. Growing and blooming above them, while tenderly over their gravestone Twines the winding woodbine with tendrils that toss in the bi-eezes? Other lilies as fair are blooming over their earth-mound! Other maidens as fair have, weeping, knelt ' moug the fern-fronds! But the flowers that I loved are lying lowly and lonely ! Sleep, O maiden, sleep in the halcyon hush of the shadows, Sleep till sounds the trump of the heralding angel, proclaiming, ' Time shall be no more and begun are the aeons eternal; ' Then, not in beauty ephemeral, but as the angels, Clad in the robe of the lily, th ' angelie mantle of heaven.

I Pulls out a huge spring.] Meseemeth that I itch from head to foot, I smell the pungent odor of red pepper. [ lie sneezes.] This is no woman ' s work, it is the Prophet, Who thus hath broke my rest, and seven-fold 129 Shall be my vengeance ! Let me rise and dress And 1 shall climb the stairway to his den, And I shall drag him thence, even in the darkness, No eye shall see to pity or to spare. [His door is suddenly opened, the two women appear, ligiit in liund, and an uproar begins tliat lasts for half an hour. At last the women retire.] SCENE 5. Sammy. — [Waking up.] — I hear the Cohort ' s deep and stealthy tread; He cuts the rope in twain, yet leaves me fast. And now I hear him tugging at their doors. [All is silent.] ACT 11. SCENE I. [Mrs. Cannnnball standing before a door in the rear of Lund House. The day is breaking.] Mrs. Can)io)iball . — ' Tis dawn and Lund House yard is beautiful. The sombre firs are darkly green and rise With drooping boughs to catch the morning ' s gleam. And southward spire on spire doth lift its cross Out of the dun, pale mist that shrouds the river. And winds, a grayish crescent, round the h.lls. The door doth open hard. Heavens! a clang Smites my astounded ear, my mistress ' silver Is scattered on the floor and all her tin. I Hears the Cohort chuckle in the opposite room.] ' Tis but another of the Cohort ' s wild And senseless acts, — a pity truly ' tis That such a youth should be, so young, a fool. SCENE 2. [Cohort arising from the slumber of the just and lazily dressing, his sides convulsed with irrepressible laughter.] Cohort. — Master am 1 of all that is within. The Prophet, sadder than he e ' er hath been Till now, with fear to tremble doth beg in, Glory evermore, hallelujah! And Rufie Mine, who in her chamber fast Doth dream of triumph, shall awake at last To fintl her hopes all blighted by the blast, Glory evermore, hallelujah ! ' 30 And Mamma aiul her babe shall plead in vain And weep deliverance in their hour of pain, Their loss of breakfast is my glorious gain, Glory evermore, hallelujah ! And Sammy Danoes in his prison cell In lowliness and meekness there shall dwell, Until his breast with longings sad doth swell. Glory evermore, hallelujah! SCENE 3. [Uufie Mine in her chamber, arranging her toilet.] Riijic Mine. — Softly the morning is breaking Tremblingly over the lea. Softly the light is awaking The world to its labor and glee. And with the advent of morning, The joy of my own heart awakes, Triumphing over the scorning The Cohort in arrogance makes. Oft shall my memory wander In joy to this morning, and thrill With exultings impassioned and fonder Than other glad moments instill. [Slie attempts to open the door, it refuses to yieid.) The Cohort then hath triumphed! Can it be? Alas! the woes of women have no end. Their joy is turned to mourning in a night, And when the day awaketh, is no moie. [she is overcome with grief.] SCENE 4. [The Prophet, having arisen and fonnd himself shut in, prepares for the worst. He dons his spect.i- cles, buttons his coat up close, looks at Huius (as if for the last time) asleep in the cradle, and opens the window,] Profhct. — Sweet wife, weep not so many scalding tears. Unto the valiant life and death are one ; Honor and victory are all in all. Maiiiiiia. — Dear husband, risk thou not the dread ascent. What if thy foot should slip and thou shouldst fall. Mangled and lifeless, on the turf below. ' Think of the grief and hardship that would light On us, thy wife and child. Desist I pray. ■3 " Prophet. — And let the Cohdit glory in my shame? Better to risk my all than thus to bow- In mean, obsequious yielding to his will. Maniina. — Farewell, dear husband, may ' st thou prosper well! Profhct. — Farewell, my wife, thy wish doth strengthen me. [He chunbers out of the window, scrambles itp the shinier, plants his feet on its top and with hands clutching the shingles of the roof, thus makes apostrophe to the morning sun.] O thou ethereal Light, in heaven born, Whose golden glory bathes the world in beauty, And crowneth hill and woodland, spire and roof, With aureoles of splendor, warm, serene; Come thou and fill me with thy buoyant power. As now in fear I make this dread ascent. I He closes his eyes, makes a supreme effort, and draws himself upon the roof. Ascends it on his hands and knees, opens a window in the tower, pulls himself through and jumps to the Hoor.] Here let me pause a moment to take breath And still the quaking in my fear-struck knees, — To think such weakness sits in such a soul ! [lie tries in vain to open the door.] Aha ! the Cohort ' s work, ' tis good and strong, And plentiful ; it meets me everywhere. " Thou arrant knave, aroint thee, " I shall cry. The terror-stricken Cohort I shall seize And roll him in profusion on the sod. [Struggles to open the door.] SCENE 5. [Mamma trying her best to lull Iluius.] [Boo-hoo-hoo-0-boo-hoo-hoo. HuiKs. — Take Hooie down stairs, mamma, Hooic hungry. Maiiinia — Be still, my darling, I shall sing to thee. " The old fox went out one moonshiny night, When the wind lay low and the snow lay light. ' Oh! ' said the fox, ' may I go aright Until I get out of the town-o, town-o. Until I get out of the town-o! ' " Hiiius. — Hooie hungry. Mamma, Boo-hoo-hoo-o-boo-hoo-hoo. Mamma. — Wait but a minute, darling, while I sing. " The old fo. v he entered the farmer ' s yard; ' O goosies, sweet goosies, don ' t be afeard ; The fattest of you must grease my beard Before I get out of the town-o, tow n-o, Before I get out of the town-o.

" The old woman she up and out of her bed, And out of the window she poked her long head, ' Husband, dear husband, the great goose is dead, And the fox is gone out of the town-o, town-o, And the fox is gone out of the town-o. " Huius. — Boo-hoo-hoo-o-boo-lioo-hoo. Mamma — Come, darling, let me rock thee on my knee. " The old man he up and out on the hill And blew his horn both loud and shrill. ' Oh I ' said the fox. ' we ' ll have music still, Until we get out of the town-o, town-o, Until we get out of the tovvn-o. ' " Fluius. — Where papa, mamma? Take Hooie to papa, mamma. Please. Mamiua. — " The old fox he went to his own wise den. Where he had children, both nine and ten. ' Daddie, dear daddie, go back again, Go back once more to the town-o, town-o. Go back once more to the town-o. ' fluius. — Hooie want a tlwink. Go down stair get Hooie dwink, mamma. JMamma. — Hush, darling, while I lull thee with my song. " The old fox and his wife are very wise, They never eat mustard in all their whole lives, They eat without forks and thev never have knives, But they lo -e to be picking the bones-o, bones-o, But they love to be picking the bones-o. " Huius. — Boo-hoo-hoo-o-boo-hoo-hoo. Hooie want to go down stair see .Sammv, mamma. Boo-hoo-hoo-o-lioo-hoo-hoo. M aiuma. — Hush, or th ' mamma will be torced to spank thee. SCENE 6. [Sammy Danoes in his room, bohning the Anti jone of Sophocles. Translates, looking out of the win- dow, as follows : Creou : Let it come ! let it come ! Let that best fate most happily appear, That brings to me the final clay of life. Let it come! let it come! That never I to-morrow may heboid ! Chorus: This i.s to come, the present is thy care. Care for the future rests where it should rest. Creon: Well, all I ask was summed up in that prayer. Chorus: Pray thou for nothing more, since no escape From destined doom to mortals hath been given.] Satijmy Daiwcs. — Alas, how vsell hath Creon voiced my sorrow. What greater woe is there than loss of freedom ? ' Tis nearly eight o ' clock, no breakfast yet; ' Tis time that I were on the way to German. Saxo is barking loudly to be loosed, And Dick, the Prophet ' s charger, stamps the floor Impatient for his hay and quart of oats. Who Cometh now. ' The tower door swings open, I hear the Prophet ' s soft and creeping gait. And peradventure he hath left untied My door, but no, ' tis fast. Oh, joy! it yields. [Pushes the door open just a little and succeeds in untying therope. He leaves the room and finds the Cohort at the head of the stairs, the doors of the women still tied together, the mummy dangling from the clothes line. Mrs. Cannonball is brooinsticking the Cohort, Untie Mine is pleading in one room, " Please let me out, " and lluiiis in the other is crying lustily. The Pro]ihet has just gone down for a hasty dish of mush and .Sammy Danoes follows. The curtain falls.] Francis Potter Daniels. ■34 Q " OTrtCrtAL Forbiadeti (From the notebook of an American tourist in Germany.) ' £.« is siri-f gs i ' s itiiti-rsagi.

Said the Yankee, " Why? " " You cannot go cycling; instead, It is strengthily undersaid. You must first be measured, and weighed, and then Tell where you would wheel, and why, and when.

(After Byron— a lung ways.) 136 Cfte mule on Dress Parade ¥ " Agaladayl white ti-ousors! dress parallel ' ' The commandant liad this announcement made ; And all the soldiers, dressed in spotless white, Came out to do their best. Oh, ' twas a sight! The belles that grace the University, And Colleges, of course, were there to see. Each warrior, as he strode across the field, Felt very confident that he would yield To nothing less than glances of soft eyes — Those deadly darts in such complete disguise. " The observed of all observers " true were they, Without a doubt the heroes of the day. But ah! — alas for mortal vanity! — Their sweet illusions all were soon to be Dispelled by one of doubtful birth and fame. By one not even honored with a name, A lowly mule, — not one who studies law, But verj ' like the one whose humble jaw Afforded Samson that most deadly bone With which he slew a thousand men alone. He marched upon the field (this mule I mean) Attired in uniform all neat and clean. The whiteness of his trousers every whit Made up for what they s.adly lacked in fit. His forward limbs wore corporal stripes. His head Was decked in colors, blue and white and red. Then rose a mighty cheering from the crowd. The soldiers then indeed felt very proud. But, lo! at the command, " Fours right about. " They saw at once the rea.son for the shout. The ass, indeed, was master of the day; The eyes of all the fair were turned his way. In truth, it seemed that Puck had made good use Of his enchanted, love-begetting juice; And these Titanias, it may be said, Were all enamoured of an ass ' s head. He marched and countermarched, passed in review. He faced about — in sooth I think he knew The book of tactics thoroughly by heart, He executed nearly every part; But what of the cadets? Where were they then ' ? Ah, woe the day! Those poor, dejected men Were trying very bravely to regain The favor they had lost — but all in vain! And when they saw that they must needs give way. They left the field; and one was heard to say, " Why send that mule to-day, thou_wicked Chance. When we came out to show our new white pants? " G. A. S. ■37 3S Up Co Date. A iTiuiilen ship ' , Of scarce nineteen. With rapturous eye And smile serene, One autunin day Was heard to say, " I mean qniie soon To graduate — maybe in June. " Now this maiden shy Of scarce nineteen. With azure eve And charming- mien, But one sliort year, I knew, Had heen at the U. I said, " Indeed, that ' s very soon. How can you graduate in June?
