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.

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.

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.)
