Professor Kofke is our scientific man par excellence. He know3 more ani teaches less chemistry, physics, mechanics, and electricity, experimental r .nd otherwise, — mostly otherwise — than any other professor in college. W.ien he is not busy manufacturing unheard of chemical compounds with outrageous stenchos, or explaining why the compound was not formed when by all the rules of the chemical game it should have been, he spends his spare time stowing away valuable (?) instruments, fitting rusty keys into ruBtier locks, and preventing the unsophisticated •first-year students , who are •just trying things" from blowing themselves, the institution, and divers sedate Seniors to kingdom come. We congratulate Professor Kofke on getting rid of us, but our heartiest congratulations we reserve for ourselves when we think that we will hear no n»re,—"Evaporate to dryness, dissolve in HOI, neutralize with KOH, diluteCLASS ROLL .

But with tho others oho probably hit noaror tho truth for no one also disolosod tho soarot. If anyone hero would like to popp into his future. Just ask Thornton Emroy or Thomas Groetsingor for tho young lady 8 address, for they accompanied hor hone. Tino dragged on slowly through tho winter nonths until after the mid-year examinations, many or the noribarw of tho class taking thoir full allowanoo of outs. Early in February the class hold its second mooting and proceeded to oloot Spoakors for class banruot and to appoint oomlttoes to look after tho neoosscry details for graduation. Harry Hertin rejoiced in his selection ns chclmnt of tho Crnaittee on Gifts because he saw a ohanoo to graft. 3ut tho other nonbors of tho class watched him so closely that he didn’t oven graft tho prioo of n good cigar.

Boob wore sloe bleak suit, just beouase wlfie prefers hip in blaok. Hast be fine to have to dress to suit tout wife. Even dignified Henry Bind wore a beautiful pair of lsoe soon in the hope of securing a frmt sect. But, alas, Henry was relegated to the book row in order to fom a suitable beokrxound for the class officers and historian. A few ef the smaller members like Thornton Bmrey. Earkowlts, Honor, and Thflmas Kart In were given seat a on the floor. Just ask them hew it reels to look pleasant and at the sane tine be conscious of extreme discomfort. Hone of the member were given the toys which every photographer keeps to q iet ehildren. The of foot wun marvelous; they became as quiet as nice, and almost cried when they were forced tc give up their toys. Having reviewed the doings of the class as a unit, it nay bo profitable and enjoyable to hold up the individual members of the class to the limelight of publioity. and allvjw you to see then aa we have seen them during the college terms. First, our president, Thomas Sroetsinger, who is almost entirely responsible for the doings of the olass. X promised to let him do%ra eaay, so will simply quote the words of the poet: Hone know him but to love him; lone named him but to praise. Then Henry Roberts, professional entertainer, who pads such a hit as faldre in "L ’Avooet Patella", end as Herr Seeberg in "fersalsen" „ Surely Henry missed his calling and the stage a dramatic star of the ninth magnitude when Henry chose to teach the young Ideas how to shoot orapa. During the year Henry developed a great liking for Belle Henrietta cigars end grape juice. Mention either and see how he responds. The elass also expects great things from our two athletes, Simpson end Hosenberger, who are rapidly entering the heavy weight class, and may some day uphold the honor of the white race. Ar.d then there are the two Moreys, who developed the art of cutting. In laot in some classes if ene cone the other stayed away, and by no iking this scheme thoy assured all the notes tfith only one-half the wort, ni yet They both re-eoivod degrees. Or our friend SteJler, who de erveo more than passing noti3e. In foot, he was the bravest man in The class, for did'he not take unto himself a wife during the collogo Term? Dr. Wallace, not knowing the cause of his absence when this event happened, announced te the class that Ur. Stetlor was sick and that he neped he would soon recover. The class wishes Mr. 8tetlor a long and happy married life, end that all hia troubles will be little ones. Tc vary the monotony let us look at the girls in the eloew. The college grind. Miss Poardsloe, won a scholarship in History. Ho wonder, for If evrr anyone worked hard. Miss Boardsleo did. Actually She redd every word of every ? inn of every book ever assigned, while the rest e£ the class were developing the art of reading five or six books in S rainy afternoon. Miss d Ford also won a scholarship In HbgLlsh toe bed It wasn't Latin, for she simply cate Latin, for postins. Miss do Ford reads French and taken port in French plays. Be all remember her very creditable porJvayr.i cf the part of "Colette to "L'Avooat Fate-lin,f, Tho class prodioto a bright future, and if she continues her socialistic teaching, we may hoar of Miriam A. as a member sf OoifUSI elected by the Socialists and Suffrage Poetry was troll represented in the olaeo.

Why I amv aona xonorie of the close who ffould travel further to get out of Lenvech.Our trorsurer, Hiss Coverdalo, was tlie no3t popular girl at Temple during hor Junior yoar, and would no doubt have soourod the- ecm honor this yoc.r had there been a sinilar contest. TC© developed suoh a liking for the "Owl” during that oontost that wo bought then three for twenty-five just to Give our classmate the coupons. Of the other nonbers of the class, little can be setid that would cause a laugh or oven a soil©. They were hard working, industrious students, tone of then looking forward to the ministry as their profession life. Thomas G»eetsinger Martin and Markowitz r.ro looking forward to the time when they will earn a living as Rov. Thomas Martin, D, D, and Rabbi Markowitz rospeotively. Or Winder, who is very fond of Latin and Greek and expects to keep tho wolf from the door by teaching theso subjects. And last but by no moans least Miss Ha-rlow, Miss Decknan, and Miss Finley. The first expeats to be a secretary to somebody sometime, and all her training has been along those linos. Miss Deokmnn is a public sohool teacher who has taken a college oourse. If the women of Philadelphia develop the some orazo for credits that has seizod tho men, Tenplo University will require an additional structure that would roach to Montgomery Avenue. For the ladies' sake we hope not; for Templet sake wo sincerely hope that her work nay spread over many squares of Philadelphia. The last has not only successfully passed a course in Liberal Arts apd Sciences, but has also been doing graduate work in Domestic Arts and Sciences. Ours has been a great class. We believe it and we hope that you agree with us after listening to all these facts and fancies. Dr. McKinley himself admitted that we possessed more quantity than any other class evfer graduated. Modesty along prevented him from adding the word quality. T7e add it, and desire to go out into tho world as tho greatest class in the history of Tomple, cherishing in our hearts a very doep love for our Alma Mater and for tho men who have made such a deep and lasting impress upon the Class of 1911. Thomas J. Dobbins. PROFESSOR AUDERS. Herr Profossor—Bitto leson Sio, Herr Dobbins. Horr Dobbins— ---------------------------- Herr Professor—In what mode is the verb'-----? Then tho agony is on. Herr Dobbins, Who has boon laboriously digging Cut the sentenoo, just one in advance, hurriedly returns to the trail, barks, but tho forest through which he is traveling is of the nature of an Amazon tanglo; an axe is nooessary in order to get through it. The countenance of the Herr Professor is a study: Firstly,—It expresses the whole category of the "Optative Subjunctive";—a wish. Present—(0) for What is possible and is expected to happen: Preterit©— (0) that what is so wore not so: Pluperfoot—(0) that what was not so had been so. Secondly,—Visage changes in an instant to the concessive subjunctive (conceding a proposition to get a basis for some further statement---from Herr Dobbins). An inspiration floats into the rear of the room like a lino from a folk song. Wenn ich ein VBglein hfttt1, fldg ich zu dir. (If I were a little bird and had two little wings, I would fly to thee). It flies without wings—a stage whisper---"Diplomatic Subjunctive". The bell rings—the suspense is over.CLASS PORK. They say that In the ages past (Which same are old and hoary) The Templars in full many a bout Received both fame and glory:— But those of whom I tell you now Are quite another story. These are the knights in white and red The heroes of a battle Where books have been the conquered foes, Which caused their brains to rattle:— And yet those books now all lie low. As 'ne th a charge of cattle. (That simile was bad, I know. And Jret I had to rhg ne it); Well, to resume: the faculty Will tell you what a crime it Was to oxeroome those murdered books— A fight with none to time it I Ask Dr. Vlachos—an A. B. Depends, you know, on Latin: — He‘11 tell how hard we made for him The classic chair he sat in:— Our presence was the atmosphere Professor Lee grew fat in . We re mathematically inclined— Just go ask Dr. Heller; And if there s aught that he won't say That's kind—Sauzd will tell heri (The while we modestly retire To some convenient cellar.) Anders, Coulomb, 5 retz, Wallace, Holm, Will kindly add their version; And then our much-be loved Doan Will cause a slight diversion By telling how we can flunk out, Or some such base aspersion Well, well, the faculty is not Tonight of much esteem here: The SENIORS claim your reverence— (These mighty beings, who beam here A trifle more august and proud Than e en Alumni seem here.)-2- There's Groetzinger—you see him there? The one v ho's been presiding: YouTd know' he was our president Without his least confiding,— Hie air of austere dignity So firm is, and abiding. Wait 1 Place aux dames a minute here— A rule1" 1 donvt',,Mbelieve in; A relic of the bad old times When Vj3 did naught but weavin': Yet Fh.it more stately maid of old (Though looks are oft deceivin'). Than she who holds our money-bags, Miss Coverdale, our treasure? (I should say "treasurer", of course 1) And next it is my pleasure To bring our secretary forth— Miss Harlow. Who can measure The length of all the shorthand notes She's taken? She is able To do her work at any time:— Why, look I in all this Babel, I do believe she's writing notes Upon the banquet table . Ho, Mr. Simpson, I have not Forgotten to include you: I saw you looking nervous, but I would not be so rude to The father of the finest babes A parent ever cooed to I We have so many benedicts I It really is alarming L (I wonder why the married men Must always be so charming? Why, I've known girls liked married life More, even, than school-managing!) A blushing bridegroom we have here— He's not in the class photo: He must have feared the maidens bowers That photograph would go to. (It's Mr. Stetlor, by the way.) And we should like to know, too.Just why Hr. Hilcs Emory Preferred to go a-fishing To having his class picture "took", Our host-laid plans thus dishing. —Eis brother tried to look like two, But hulk won11 grow with wishing! A fev; more men I think you'd like To have me roast, before I Retire, mid the relief of all:— So from my bounteous 3toro I Bring forth our grave historian, Whom once behind a door I Watched play a frivolous French part: From his stem look, at prosent, Would you suppose it possible He was a gay young peasant, With sky-blue tie and yellow sash? — He rivalled Rostand1a pheasant I I can't name Hr. Bobbins, though, And not name Roberts also: If one be soon, the other one Is always within call; so Lot me remark, our tall young friend It was who roused the hall so By playing Valdro {the lover's part, Of oourse; in our French drama: {I don't know what will rhyme with this Except tho letter Gammat) And in the German p}.ay—but noi I'll keep my little hammer To knock the tender-hearted Busch;— A fortune-tollor sees he Will have three vrLves. "At once?" says Busch His manner calm and breezy, "Well, I'm in love with five girls now, So three should be quite easy!" Too bad Hiss Beckman wasn't there! 3he always has quite ready A mocking speech whose very wit Makes wild-eyed talkers steady: And yet she's lost hor heart to—French: (She's blushing there already!)And two of us are faculty! I hardly need to nemo then: They look as if thoir double crowns Enomously became thorn. But he's fron Yale, and she1 a to go To Ponn, so who can hlano thorn? A minister is "in our midst": You111 tell him by his glasses. His propor collar, and his air Of wisdom in his classes, TThere psych, and sociology Ho swallows down in masses. Two engineers—-they re modest men; In fact, wo seldom see them, They work so hard. (I'm mighty glad That I don't havo to bo them! You 11 pardon EnglishHFreaks, I'm sure The rhyme requirements free thorn.) Oh! did you hear a gentle sound? That must have been Miss Finley! (The richness of hor mental charms Her voice does clothe so thinly!) And yet they say she's scrapped with Dean Carnoll and Dean ilcEinley! ITow Mr. Hosonberger---- Good gracious! Hr. Grootzinger Is looking at mo madly! Ho X11 put the lights out if I don't Stop this at once: so sadly I leave the rest of you in peace: It really irks mo badly. But yet I'm sure you're all too kind To my poor muse to bind her To Babb-lo on in longer wise: And so I think I'll Winder Up yet again for one more spurt, Ere Homer path wijl find her. And you whose names will not make puns, Will pardon me, I'm certain, If I includo you all within One cheer for----- 1911. (For onco I've no Byronic rhyme!) And so--ring down the curtain! Miriam Allen de Ford.HffiSEOTATIOH OF CLASS GIFT. As we are about leaving tho University upon the completion of our courses, it is quite in keeping that we should seek to give some evidence of tho regard wo hold for tho institution, as well as the appreciation of sorvices rendered to us while connected with it in tho capacity of student. !7e take this opportunity of presenting to Temple a gift that, whild it may not represent very much in money value, is, v;c feel, in what it represents in its truo intrinsic value, most fitting. Ue have been, during these years of study at the University, drinking at the fountain of wi dom. T7o trust that what lira. Jones 7 rote in closing to Mr. Jones, when he was away from hone, may in a sense apply to us—the members of the graduating class of 1911. Hor words in closing ran, "Ue are well at home. Baby has been growing brighter tho lr.st few weeks. Hoping you are the sane, I cm, your loving wife". In our work hero, nert to the services of the devoted instructors, books have played the most important part. In the continuation of our study, books will continuo to be very important factors. To those who take courses of study, following us here, books added to tho collection in the possession of the Universitjr, nay be a great aid in pursliinfe their assigned tasks. The thought has come to me that books typify a number of things for which a University, end in particular this one, stands. Books have always rocommonded themsolvos to mankind as faithful and loyal friends. Thoy stand ready to give to us what adds to our enjoyment as well as to out usefulness. They make no distinction among those whose desire it is to cultivate their friendship. They serve us well in whatever circumstances our let may be cast. So with this University. It is indeed a loyal and true friend to those 7ho cultivate acquaintanceship v ith it, and who desire the benefits it confers. It offers its services to all, without regard to rank or previous conditions in life. "Ich dien," I serve, the true mark of a friend, might well be its motto. A book stands for the enlargement of one's horizon. The achievement of the world of thought and action aro gathered into its pages, and he who is willing to pay the price in time and effort may have the range of his wisdom extended. This University, as well as other similar institutions, stands for this broadening of the mental horizon. From a piano of comparative narrow vision, a person may be lifted to a high plane of mental outlook and cultural acquisitions. The University places the work of instruction and training into the hands of competent instructors. Under the guidance of these instructors, students aro led from one plane- of achievement to another and have the scope of their outlook upon life broadened until they stand upon tho platform of the liberally educated and cultured man.Books collectively are a storehouse of human knowledge. They arc not, however, moroly storehouses of knowlodgo; they bosom® diesaminators of knowledge and oulturo as troll. Soneono has said, "She true university of those days‘is a oollootion tff hooks". A University, and ospoolf-lly Tenplo, stands for the vldost posslblo dieseninr.tlon of looming, its mission is particularly to those who night otherwise ho doprivod of the hone-fits of a liberal education; honoo its nnbltion "to work in haroony with all other educational institutions to oako Philt-delphio the best ednoatod oity in America." V» oan assuro you that prosonting those books gives pleasure to every neobor of the grr.dur.ting class. Uhilo we nay not holieve thoroughly that the true university is a oollootion of hooks, re do holiove thoroughly that a oollootion of hooks is a true part of a unlvorsity, end vxo oro happy in hoing chloto add to the eolloctldn of Staple those hooks secured by a oon-nittee of the olass, upon roaonaondr.tlon of the lnstruotors, Shore is no difference of opinion hero.

It all happened in the Temple library, whero the rules say that talking is strictly forbidden. Of course, seniors have privileges This nay account for the fact that Miss Harlow, without any hesitation, exclaimed, as sh6 came into tho room, "I havo finished my papor for Dr. Frotz, and it is just sixty typewritten pages.” This started the bell rolling, for immediately Miss Mary Finley inquirod, "Who is this Dr. Frotz, of whom I hoar so muoh?" "Oh," said Hiss Coverdrlo, "taTis an ex-farmer, a preacher, and a toaoher of ooononics, ethics, and statistics. Ho is tho cutest toaohor in tho collogo, especially -when ho curls up in that arm chair in Dr. McKinley s room. I do like to hear him talk about his brothor.1 "Yos," romarkod Mr. Babb, "that brother enmo in handy to illustrate the fact that money to be useful must havo roal value and also to prove tho theory that financiers are born, not made." "How is that?" asked Miss Finley. "Why," answorod Hr. Babb, "when tho Doctor and his brother v ore boys on tho farm at Doylcstown, they used sticks for horses. The brothor had a lot of crooked sticks for horses and leaves for money; whilo tho Doctor had straight sticks but no money. So ho exchanged his straight stioks for the crooked sticks and loaves which his brothor had. Lator ho found that tho loaves wero of no use, so he tried to buy back his straight stioks, but his brothor was too much of a financier." At this point Mr. Babb was intorruptod by Mr. Thornton Emory s remarking that Dr. Fretz's illustrations sometimes hit hard. "Did you notioo," he continued, "tho other night, just after I had been contending for government ownership, that the Dootor told us that a socialist had said that ho was employed by the government and if hi6 department wore run by an individual his wages would be c.bout one-third what thoy wore at prosont? The Doctor s answer to the socialist was what I objeoted to, for ho told tho man that individuals paid mon what thoy woro worth. I wonder what I would bo getting if the schools were run by an individual?" Now was Mr. Miles Emory's chance to let is know ho was present. He did so by remarking that Dr. Fretz knew a groat doal about tho subject of capitalization; "How is that?" asked a couple of Juniors. "Why," responded Mr. Emery, "he can toll how almost evory corporation in tho country was capitalized. lo likes best to tell how tho trolley lino from Doylostown to Quakertown v as built and capitalized. I shall not attompt to givo tho details, for thoy ohemge every time they aro told." For Some time Hi . Busch had boon moving uneasily upon his chair, as if he had something to say. Now was his chance; so he availed himsolf of the opportunity. ;,I think," said ho.Dr. Frotz asks some very hard questions in Gthics. One night ho asked mo if it were right for a student who had engaged a room from a widow for the school year, and who later could do better olsov horo, to leave the widow, since sho could not get anyone 0I30 to take the room." Ho continued, "I tried every way to make an answer, but the Doctor cornored me every time. It mattered very little to mo." Mr. Rosenberger then added his comment by declaring that Dr. Fretz always hits the point in the losson, and at the sane time, by his little anecdotes, makes the subjects interesting. While Hr. Rosenberger was thus talking, Dr, McKinley appeared in the library,—which was a signal for the discontinuance of the discussion of Dr. Fretz I DR. MCKINLEY. (Historical Methodology.) The class had mot the table round; Papers wore road and not a sound Came from our classmates sitting still, The weary grind came from the mill. The toachor sleepily looked about: Oh, cut it out; oh, cut it out To the Mercantile Library We went one rainy Saturday; And stood around tho dusty shelf, The librarian telling himself The only way to take books out; Oh, cut it out; oh, cut it out. IJext we visrted a fireproof placo, Where books so raro piled up a pace Stood in glass cages locked with care; We, grouped about, had scarce a share Of the looks allowed, ero turned about; Oh, cut it out; oh, cut it out. But the worst is yet to be told. Each of us held a topic bold. In musty books of agos gone Wo peer and poke with many a groan, For an hour!s paper wo must shout; Oh, cut it out; oh, cut—Ft out.DR. HELLER. (Ilathematics ad Infinitum.) Years and years ago a slender young man graduated from college. As he stepped from the platform, after reading a wildly applauded thesis on "The Square Root of the Solar System”, a professor rushed up and shook him vigorously “by the hand. "Remember, N. 3., you 11 mako a mathematical genius some day.” The thin young man blushed. Then he trotted off to Reading, whore by a wondrous demonstration of the oase with which a right angle may be divided into three and a third equal parts he took the school board by storm, and was elected head of high school mathematics. His fame spread abroad until it reached Texas. Stopping only long enough to take a Ph. D. at Colorado, the young fonius hied him to the Lono Star State. A growing University n Philadelphia heard of this gentleman, and sent for him to take chargo of its College, Engineering, and Preparatory departments. Temple University was the fortunate institution. Doctor Hapoleon Bonaparto was tho wonderful mathematical genius who by froquont rappings on his doslc and gentle cries of "People, people" loads tho oolloge engineering students through the intricacies of calculus, and tho Bachelors of Art through tho mazes of trigonometry.

Who can so deftly turn a psyoh. Ico-turo into an after-dinner spoooh? Who is so woll-oquippcd with those two prime sources of psychological research, "my school” and "my boy”? And, failing those, there is always some charming man who has had his head blown open with dyncmito, or his Broca’s aroa destroyed by a perfectly good crow-bar. Bewt of all, there is tho dear littlo frog. Well do we know the dear littlo frog. Ho has no head, but v hon you put acid on his back on tho right sido, ho scratches it with his right leg; and if you hold his right log he uses his loft Swoot creature I familiar indeed art thou to us—wo 11 might v;e call thoo by thy first batrachian namo I As a last rosort, ono can always discuss tho immortality of the soul, or genius and insanity, or tho cultural epoch theory, or some other bit of frivolous conversation.

"How sad he looks I" whispered a non-Tcmple-ite to me, as she watched the thin face and the melancholy Van Dyke heard. "Nay, nay i" I whispered hack, "yon should see him conduct a Paul Jones, or tell jokes at the Corclo Franpais, Evor a professor of psychology has his moments of relaxation 4r DR. HOLM. "Good evening, brothers 1" The brothers respond, smilingly. Tho sisters "lay low and say nothing". "As I was coming down in the car this evening, X remembered that I had forgotten" (Aha I a joke , wo laugh) "1 remembered that I had forgotten all your registration numbers. Just give them tp me again, won't you?" The work proceeds, frith Joy we v atch tho shortening of the hour, the while our handsome professor discourses on England, "my little girl", and Gladstone—"tho great man whose name I boar".

Not so I For yet another half hour we xgBrk and guess: until at last wo are permitted to bring forth "Mr. Wright", provooator of discussions. "Now what do you think of this point, brothers?" queries the genial Dr, Holm. Mr. Busch hazards an opinion, "Absolutely notHere air© tho time statistics f." and the board is rapidly covered with writing quite easy to read—on tho front row. In the course of the writing, tho 9:10 bell rings. "What an interesting discussion we have had'." smiles Dr. Holm. "Now study your lesson, gentlemen1" i3 the parting injunction. The girls hold their breath in delirious hope. "And the ladies too, of course 1" comes finally in a kindly and patronizing tone. Tho girls breathe once more. Enter Dr. Fretz: Dr. Holm shakes hands, proffers a choer-ful greeting, and departs. Sociology is over for another week.PROFESSOR LEE. Muse of dead.

VLACHOS Then in answer addressed tire student the swift-thounited Dr. Vlachos. "Little, foolish one, do you know of the Greek I have given you to prepare; For redently the blue-eyed Pallas Athene stood behind me and warned me that she saw you at the theatre: And yesterday also you cut my class;'but I think this will not be pleasing to me, Since surely you will have to take your examination, and I shall have to miss my train to give it to you." Then addressed him the godlike student, speaking winged words: "How truly you do not mind missing your train on Wednesday and Sunday nights: But for me, who am a mortal born and not one of the immortals, Jfou do mind missing your train: Therefore my heart meditates in my breast, resolving one of two courses: Whether neglecting my Latin I shall do my Greek, or whether neglecting my Greek I shall do my Latin." Then answered him the godlike, Zeus -nourished Dr. STLachos: "Heither of these things Shalt thou do, 0 student like unto the gods. But doing both thy Greek and thy Latin thou shalt neglect thy French and thy mathematics: For Americano learn too many things and not enough of anything, which is Greek and Latin." He spoke: but the student remained quiet, and for a long time was held in silence.DR. WALLACE. "When I was a student at the University—" Ah, that most delightful of phrases’. Always it meant release from Heraclitus or Thomas Aquinas or Kant, according to the time of year, while the class listened joyously to some anecdote of the dreadful days when Dr. Wallace's philosophy professor told him he was a heretic. Who would think it now, of our ge-ntle, hurried sago, who suggests nothing so much as an excellent blend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and the White Rabbit in "Alice in Wonderland"? It is well of course, to know Dr. Wallace’s foibles-- to quote Greek liberally in examinations, and to refer, whether the course be in philosophy or in English, always to his and never to one’s own favorite authors. But our professor is beautifully and unexpectedly tolerant—I know myself that he has boon kindness itself to an unfortunate and misguided wretch v ho dares to believe in what Zr. Wallace calls "that exploded theory, evolution". All honor to Dr. Wallace-A he is bigger than his prejudices.

At 2.05 each day Professor Fineman passes through the library followed by some one who does not pass through immediately, but stands and chats a moment or fools with her glove a few seconds and then says, "I must be going too". The great question is — "Where do they meet?" It is still unsolved. But as to where they are going, we can guess. Have you hoard of the urden that Professor Fineman has been making this spring at Cliftun Height ? In surprise you ask why he, the dreamer, should be interested in making a garden? Tee, why? But if you knew the charming young lady (mentioned above), who ie intensely interested in gardening, and especially gardening in Hew Jersey, you would know why. The jyirden is probably finished by this time, for rumor says that he will need it in June. All seniors who know Professor Fineman hope that the garden will be a success and that the flowers planted therein this- spring will bloom and flourish forever, for It was a lover and his lass With a hey and a ho, and a hey-nomino That thro1 the old library did pass.
