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.

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!

Ur. Sohsts did not often oome in contact with the students in the gymnasium, as he spent most of his time with the Hormalr and Also in hunting for the hooks required in his history classes.

During the early port of tho year he only showed himself occasionally, as does a streak of lightning on a clear summer evening.
