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.)

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.

-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.
