You'd like Poddy, Bess. He lets me sit on the back seat in l'oly Con. Some of the faculty prefer to have me sit on the front seat. I suppose they want me for an example. Poddy plays baseball just fine, in fact, he is the star player on the faculty team. Professor Powers is fine, too. He is o11r Junior professor. I always think of him as I first saw him-a toad in one hand, a sala- mander in the other, a rhetoric book under his arm, and Mrs. Bohne makes me feel so much at home, she comes and knocks "good-nightv at my door every night, and keeps my clock just on time. She gives us the most instructive lectures, all about matches and such interest- ing subjects. Sometimes she calls to see if my room- mate has been sticking pins in the wall. That room- mate of mine is so careless. Oh, 1ny! I hear her coming, Bess. Good-bye. BELLE. a snake peeping from either pocket. - COLLEGE CAMPUS.

My Dear Chum: Why are you so afraid of folks, Bessie? Every day I think what good times we might be having together at Doane if you could only forget your fear and 001119. You are always speaking of 11ow terrible it must be to meet the faculty, and how insig- nidcant I must feel in their presence. Yes, indeed, the faculty of Doane College has impressed me very much. As a Freshman I was fllled with a wholesome awe, but as a Junior I am daily coming to a clearer realization of the kindness of their hearts. Miss T. has been espe- cially considerate of my feelings, emptying her pocket- book buying red ink with which to artistically decorate llly Hamlet and Browning papers, and, realizing my lone- some tendencies, has summoned me again and again to 'fwalk the green carpet" before her gentle presence. You would hardly recognize me, Bessie, for through associa- tion I am gaining such an appreciation for the beautiful, in fact, I can already greatly admire Thompsonian days- less poetically speaking, grey days-and I'rexy's fiery steed, Gibralter. Prexy teaches history and pedagogy, and he makes us study, but you would not be afraid of him. Two of his great psychological teachings have sunk deep into my brain--that too much study is not good for the health, and plenty of out-door exercise is absolutely necessary, especially in the springs. Speaking of spring makes me think of Professor Gillespie. To gain my good will he ranks me as a Sophomore, according to his new- fangled, eastern scheme. If I only knew as much Greek and Latin as he does I would be happy, but I suppose we are all blessed in different ways, and I can get to my eight o'clock Latin class o11 time. He is very fond of golf, and so is Professor Jillsong but Professor Jillson's specialty is peanuts and talking. I acquired so much general information when I took French and German, besides finishing up several bits of fancy work. lVe don't have any time for such thi11gs in Professor Bennett's classes. He teaches mathematics and Bible. If we study hard in trig. and analytics, he gives us a stick and chain in the spring and tells us to survey. He is so thoughtful of our pleasure, and I like to survey-in the spring. Professor Hosford is kind, too. He allowed us to study the heavens every clear evening last spring, and told us to observe the moon whenever it was possible. I tried to follow out his injunction, but Critch had the im- pudence to object. Poor Critch! Some one has run off with his dark lantern, which he never used, except on his bicycle. I have only one'thing now to be afraid of, and that is Professor Reynolds. He has been abroad, studied in Paris, you know, wears his hair a la Francaise, and looks so much as I imagine the great masters do, that I keep my distance and hold him in awe, but the music students say that he is not very dangerous. I am a little afraid of Principal Brown, too, for it is said that he can read any student's thoughts and intentions in twenty lninutes. Oh, I don't mean that my intentions are not perfect, but I don't want him to go to the trouble. you see.

THE PAST SEVEN YEARS AT DOANE. EN years ago Doane College celebrated 57' 'I its quarter centennial anniversary. At that time it fell to the lot of the writer to prepare a leaflet, entitled "Historical li 3 i I l-. il . . . . L M Si t.'hmpses', in which he Jotted down ' r some of the more important eve11ts that had vividly impressed his mind in con- nection with efforts to establish an infant college in a new state. While a quarter of a century in the life of an institution of learning is a brief period, yet the twenty-iive-year-old college seemed to the writer to have attained to some degree of maturity. There have been no startling developments since the quarter centennial anniversary, but a good, healthy growth, accompanied by such minor changes as the alert educational mind would naturally make. Courses of study have been enlarged to take in some new depart- ment, or put emphasis upon some branch not formerly taught, or taught to a less extent. College classes are somewhat larger. The corps of instructors has had a slight increase. The military department has given place to more varied athletics. The music department has undergone some transformations. Affiliated schools and denominational colleges in the state have drawn nearer together. There has been a general advance along educational lines, and Doane College has had its share in this advance. For a single eve11t, paramount interest, no doubt. attiaelies to the death of Mr. Thomas Doane, after whom the college was named. He had just attended the quar- ter centennial anniversary, and had taken part in the ex- ercises. Those who heard him will not soon forget his modest words relative to his own distinguished career: "Fifty-tive yea1's ago I began both the study and practice of my profession at the same time. " ' " In the prosecution of my profession I have often felt the want of further training, and this, perhaps, has led me to desire for all others a better chance than I have had. " " ' There has often come to me the unhappy feeling that I might have accomplished more in my profession, or for the general good, had I insisted for myself upon a better trainiugft His love for the college finds beautiful expression: "The college has been the object of my warmest af- fection, and such time and thought and money as I have been able to devote to it have been freely and lovingly given. " " "' And let me add that whatever of time or thought or money or love I have invested in this col- lege it has paid me better dividends than any other of
