PREFACE T h e t i me h a arri ved w h e n stude n t a n d alu m n i of Colby are looking forward to t h e publi cation of t he college a n nual.

It i s wit h m i n gled feeli n g of hope and

fear that this number i s pre ented to the pub l i c.

\\

e tarted out w i t h

ome excel­

lent idea a to w h a t we would l i ke to m ake out of this year's book, but we can only say t ha t we h a e fal le n far hor t of t h ose idea i n many re pect . There are e\·eral rea on

for t h i .

F i rst, we h a ' e endeavored to keep down ex pen es in t h e hope of

clearing up the old deb t and placing t he O racle As ociation upon a firm ba i , financial l y.

Thi

ha

kept u

from i n corporating many t hing wh i c h go so far

t o wa rd making a bo k, such as t h e 0RACI:.E aim

to be, attracti e.

gai n , t h e

cour e h a e been s t i ffened u p t h i year and t here i no di p o i t ion o n t h e part of t he facu l ty to m a ke any allowance for t he board of edi tor . o and u n t i l a change i s m ade it i s next to u ele book.

T h i s hould not be

to attempt to get out a fir t-clas

nother rea on, and per h a p t h e one of mo t weight, is t o be found i n the

m a n ner of electing the board of editor .

\Ye would trongly ad ocate a cha nge i n

t h i r e pect, so t h e editor will g e t t h e i r posi tion by compet i t i o n and not by e lec­ tion.

Th i , we feel sure, would eli m i nate m any unplea a ntne e and in. ure far

better resul t .

H owever, we do not ' i h to excu e our elve

in t he lea t, a nd,

feeling t ha t we ha ye earned a l l we hall probably get, we offer no apologie . have i n troduced \\ e

ome new feature

and m ade some ch ange

\'

e

i n arrange ment.

h a e a t a l l t i mes endeavored to 'in u l t not m i sery, neither deride i n firmit) , nor

ridicule deformi ty, " and i f t h e re a re some t h i ng w h i ch m a y eem to hit h a rd­ ' ell, dodge if you can ; if

ou can't do not feel too badly o er the m-they may do

you ome good and at wor t t hey are \\

oon forgotten by others.

e turn t h i book over to you, knowi ng t hat i t w i l l not p lea e all in a l l respects,

b u t content if i t m a y eem to please a few, and h oping t hat you ' i l l be charitable in your judgments and i n cere in your cri t i ci w h o are to fol l o w in our footsteps.

In o doi n g you will aid t hose

Senior History MEN

Between t houghts of regret and of hopeful anticipation, we pause once more to look back over t h is, our last year in College. T h e tales of t h e Freshmen and Sop h o more years have been tol d aga i n a n d aga i n and need no repeti tion. The a n n a l s of the e n io r, t hough of a d i fferent nature, are no ne t he less i n teresti ng. Our football games t hi s year were not all v ictories, but the team w hi c h L ibby managed , and herbu rne captai ned, sho wed t h a t t hey could play football w he n t hey d.efeated Bates and pla ed Bowdo i n, w i t h the ball the greater part of the t i me i nside of Bowdoi n 's twe n t y-five yard l in e. F i ve of our members played on t he teamherburne, Dwyer o tton, Lyons, and Keyes. The basketball team, capt a i ned by Tribou, proved to be a strong and w i n n ing team. T h e baseball team, man aged by Condon, an d captained b y Dwyer has a n u nusuall y good schedule. W i t h f a i r pro pects for a good team, t h e co ming seaso n pro mises t o b e a successful one. Having h a d our turn as leaders i n a l l the ariou department of college l ife, we are about to tep out and hand our trust over to t hose w ho are to take our places. Pleasan t and profitable as may have been our duties in col l ege t hey are only a means to \ ard a n end. U nless t hey h a ve fit ted us for t he larger duties of l ife we can only con clude t h at t h ey h ave been failures after all. , s our col lege days draw toward their close, t hose of us w ho have gotten beyo nd t he age of boy hood dreams and fancies, look fo'rward i n to l ife w i t h anxiou hearts wondering w h a t the future may have in store, but i t is not for t he h istorian to conjecture. \ hen we bid farewell to t he college and all its associations, there w i l l, of cou rse, be many a t hough t of regret, but judging fro m t he h i story of the cla s, t hey w i l l be more t ha n balanced by t h e hopes of greater co n quest to co me, and we w i l l leave the dear old cam pus w i t h t he ful l con fidence of youth, that t here are greater heights to which we can attain. M ay the class of 1 908 leave beh i nd i t some memorie w hi c h s h a l l b e as dear t o t h e college as is the welfare of o l by to t he hearts of a l l i t s members . .

History of 1 9 0 8 WOMEN The en ior h i story,- is it po sible t h at the fou r ) ears are over, and we stand so near t h e compl e t i o n of our college course ? There were forty-n i ne of us when, in t h e fal l of 1 904, w e came to Water i lle, t he mo t of us to meet each other for the first t ime. Our F resh m a n year was pen t as most such are,-i n obey i n g t h e Sopho­ m ores in so far as wa absolutely neces ary, and in studyi n g w h e n t h a t, too, eemed a necessi ty. The ope n i ng of our Sophomore year marked t h e begi n n i ng of a new era in t h e w o me n ' d i v ision o f olby, for we h ad voted t h at a l l h a z i n g w a s to b e abol ished and " e e n forced our new regulation . In t he place of the customary H al lowe'en party ( ? ) we i ns t i tuted t h e i dea of a d i t i nctive college day, a n d the Facu l t y gran ted us October T h i rtieth f r t h at purpo e. On t h at afternoon t he e n iors and J u niors presented " M id u m mer r i g h t s D rea m , " w h ile t h e ophomore b ad charge of t h e eve n i n g program w h i c h i n cluded d ri l l s a n d H al lowe'en festivitie , toge t her w i t h t h e crow n i ng o f t h e F resh m a n pre i dent. \ \ e feel con fident, t hat i n years to c o m e a n i nvitation t o uch a college day celebration w i l l arou e i n us a sensation of pecu l i a r l o y a l t y a n d p r i d e a we re me mber t h a t we belonged to t h e cl ass w h i ch w a s t h e first t o depart from one of the long-sta n d i n g and t i m e-honored custom ," and t o cause a day to be set a part w h e n 'ol by women h ou l d return to do honor to t he i r I m a M ater. \\' here, we a k, wa our J u n ior ease ? Fate had decided upon us as the fir t class to e nj oy the privil eges of five courses in t h e J u n ior year. The experiment proved successfu l , no doubt but the cla of 1 908 coul d not a t first look at it from t ha t poi n t of v i e w , for we were n o t t h e excep t i o n provi ng t he rule t h a t, "No class o f people w a n t t o get s o l i ttle for its m o n e y a college stude n ts. ' N o w we are t h i n ki n g of ou r o w n com mence m e n t a n d ' i t h t hat t houg h t a ques­ t i o n comes to our m i nds. vYh a t have we done in t h ese four year t h a t is worthy of re membrance ? To be ure, each year ha broug;ht i t s pleasures a n d its frie n dsh i ps, but w h a t of good are we leaving for our col lege ? \\ e know t h a t we are better equi pped for our l ife's career now t h a n we cou l d ot herw ise h a e been, and we rea l i ze t ha t much of t h i s i due to t h e i n te re t a n d co-operation bet ween studen t s a n d Facul t y.

Thi year is m ade famous by the memorable battle of orth ollege, t he fierce t battle known in our h i tory. In t h e begi n n i ng of thi year a \ arm of mi creant kno� n a t h e gree n horn of 1 9 1 0 i n vaded the peace and quietne of tbi happy land. f uch in olence were t hey t h at their conduct w a ab olutely unbearable. o to a e the cou n t ry from ruin the cla of 1 909 took upon it elf t he ta k of reducing the e u n prom i i ng peci­ men to order.

them their brave captain, sorely wounded. But the rebels m ade over-confident by t h e i r temporary success, dispersed. The Sophomores m ade a swift, sudden attack and the v i ctory was complete, and a complete retribution was made. Certain of the leading spirits of the i nsurrection were set up as examples to the rest, and the rebellion was entirely crushed. In the seventh year of P rexy the W hite t h is band took unto itself the name of J u niors. T h is year was spent in peace and quietness w i t h no wars or rumors of wars. Two years of strife had won well-deserved rest. T h i s year, h owever, was a year of progress and achievement in the realm s of learning. There yet remains for t h i s noble band one year of sojourn i n the pleasant land ruled by P rexy the Wh ite. M a y the brilliancy of former ach ievements point to greater ones to come.

The Colby Oracl e

Sophomore History WOMEN ow it happened in the fall of the year of n ineteen h u ndred and six there came to the college that i s called Colby a band of maidens called Fresh men. nd t h e D e a n and Prex and t e Faculty and the Upperclassmen saw t h a t they were a goodly number. I ow the m aidens were plea ed w i t h t he college called Colby a n d d i d a t once take u p their abode w i t h i n the sacred portal of F a s H a l l . And u n­ daunted by any of the terrors of the ophomores w h o did compass them about, did they remain. And t hey did pas t h rough unscathed t h a t t i m e of horror, - " Bloody 1onday ight", and they did h ave their Freshman Reception. Undaunted also, did t hey brave the cla s-room, the German, the Fresh m a n Reading, yea, even the Algebra w h i c h i s t h e w orst of t hese. And time did go o n and on even to t h a t time of rej oicing w h ic h i known as the Fresh m an Exit. nd w i t h great j oy t hey d i d celebrate the occa ion at C hina Pond, and then departed each h e r o w n way f o r t h e u m mer. nd i t came to pass t h at the next fall they did return to the college as Sopho­ mores, weakened i n nu mbers only, � n d they did strike terror and awe into the h earts of the Fresh men. And they did sho' the e si m ple c h i ldren the way they m u t go and the t h i ngs t h at the must do, and the Fresh men h earkened, yea, hearkened unto them. n d t hese Sophomores did wax stronger and w iser con­ ti nually and did win the grati tude of the upperclassmen by i n spiring submis iveness in the fresh Fresh men. n d all the college did see that they ' ere good and did say, "Let us give t h a n ks for thi band of maiden , yea, for t h i s class of 1 9 1 0. "

Freshman H istory MEN D E R M R. D I TOR : - I am so glad t hat you gave me the chance of writing the Fre h m an h i tory, i n tead of giving i t to one of tho e horrid awful ophomore men, t h at I want t o thank you. . 1 1 the boy liked the idea, and the girls say it is per­ fectly lovely, for now we will have a real, true F re. h m an hi tory. Let me ee ; where hall I begin ? I wan ted to tell you ome t h i ng about l a t year, t h a t i , how much we were t houg h t of, but when I a ked one of the J un iors about it, he aid, " Mebbe the other upper cla men ' ould not appreciate it, at least not in it t rue wort h," and o I h ave decided to begin with l a t eptember. Vi hen I arrived at olb in the m iddle of eptemb r I wa anxiou to see my classmate . When I aw t hem I wa a plea ed a could be, a I noticed at once t h at my class was by far the be t i n college. I fel t t h a t we would have every t h i ng our own way. s I became acquainted w i t h t he boy I told them t he re ult of my ob ervation . They were all greatly plea ed. Then I ' a rned t hem t hat it would n't do for us to tart rig h t i n w i n n ing every t h ing, a i t would only make t h e upper cla men jealou . W hen we played ba eball w i t h the ophomore the boy followed out my idea perfectly, ( except that I though t t hey might h ave made a few runs and still let the ophomore have the game ) and no envy or pite was aroused. The ophomores may ay that Good' pitching and their upport won t he game, but we know dif­ ferent and everybody el e will when t h i h i tory is pri n ted, because t h is is a real, t rue hi tory. The next event i n t h i s narrative will be an expl anation of our conduct on "Bloody Monday ight. " \Ve met and talked the matter over. �ome of the boys wanted to meet the ophomores and how t hem just w h a t we t h ought of t hem. I objected to t h i s move and explained as well a I could bow it appeared to me. When I had told t hem t h a t the col lege needed the clas of 1 9 1 0 too much for us to forever put i t out of existence, and that i i we left t hem alone t h is year we would h ave t hem to play w i t h as long as t hey stayed in college, they agreed w i t h me. That's w h y we didn't do as the girls hoped we would, but it was easy to see t h a t t h e Sophomores were afraid of u . T hey scarcely touched us at all. I admit t hey made me feel nervous, t hey were so rough, but I was all right aga i n when I got back to b -I mean when I re-retired. Posters were put up that same night with a

rule about wearing green caps. We d id n ' t want to get the caps, but the girls saw them a n d t h ought t hey were just the cutest, so each fellow bought one and wore i t. One night the Sophomores i n vited us to the gymnasium to see w h i c h class was most c lever i n tumbling, and on the bars, etc. We did not l i ke to show off, and for t h a t reason came off second best. The girls all said t h � t i t was just because we were bashful. Vi e expected to win in basketball as the F reshmen did l ast year, but were not quite able. We t houg h t to have a n ice straw ride with the girls and D r. L awton, a n d to fool the Sopho mores. We h ad to sneak out and get on the sleigh on a back street, but someh o w the ophomores met and stopped us.-We didn 't know until afterwards, they were so few i n number, they looked so big. T he Sopho­ m ores said t h at we could go on if we w a n ted to take our medicine afterwards. We didn't want to take it, but we could n?t back down before t he girls, and so we de­ cided to go on. Thi was the bra vest t h i ng we did i n all our F res hman year. Signed PROUD FRE H l\IA

Freshman History WOMEN SCRAPS FROM A F RES H MAN ' S DIARY

ept. 1 9, \ ed. I got here t h i s afternoon. A lot of girls met me a t t he train and escorted me down t o Fo s H all. M y ! W h a t a big bui l d ing ; l i ttle rooms on each side a long h a l l just l i ke a jail. Two of t h e m took me i n one of t h e rooms and helped me un­ pack. I wonder i f t hey were Sopha.mores ? I kept o n m y guard so t hey d i d n ' t h a ve a c hance to h aze me. Pretty soon I heard an awful n oise, -sounded l i ke a fi re alarm. I bega n to scream Fire ! Fire ! but t hey said i t was only t h e d i n ner bell. I was rather glad. But m y ! W h e n I saw t h a t big room and so many eyes o n me, I just could n 't swallow a t h i ng. I t h i n k Waterville is a h orrid place. How I w i s h I were h o me ! ept. 20, Thur . Rather h ated to get up t h i s morni ng. D i d n 't know j ust w h at m i g h t h appen to . me. girl came to take me up on t he campus to ch apel. I was afrai d it was a Sophomore and she was going to h aze me, so I refused ; but she said I must go, so 6 nally I conse n ted. Glad I went. The P residen t said lots of. n ice t h i ngs to t he F resh men. Those boys were awfull y rude t h ough to stamp and m ake so m uc h n o i e . After ch apel w a s over I b a d t o v.rri te down w hat I w a n ted t o study a n d get t he Professors to make queer m arks after them . I don't know w h a t the marks stood for. ept. 2 2 , Sat. H ave been awfully busy for t he l ast two days. Yesterday t he Sophomo res called a F res h m a n class meeti ng and all t he Sophs were t here. They told us j us t w ha t we coul d do and just w ha t we could n ' t d o . M y , but we've got t o t o e t h e mark some ! Sept . 2 4, Mon. T h i s i s bloody M o n day night. We h a d our peanut drunk today. The Juniors are awfully n ice g irls. They made all our plans, d i d t he work, a n d all we b ad to do was eat t h e peanuts. Of course we were too young and didn't know enough to do it a lone.

the many indications of thi spirit is the recent fitting over of the men's dormito­ ries into most attractive fraternity houses. H i service, important as it has been here ha , however, not been l i m ited to the college. The Baptist Church of which he has been a member ha felt the influence of hi Christian character .. his zeal for all forms of progre ive effort i n the city o r in foreign lands and h i \ i e council in financial que t ion . h ite to the collerre and conmrnnity ha been greatly The ervice of President enhanced by the hearty co-operation of 1\ l r . h ite, who has been equally earne t and cordial in furthering the intere ts of the college and of it students. The family has brought to Colby and to aterville a standard of Christian l iving w h ich \ e can ill afford to lose. Early in his career at Col by, he bowed hi intere t in the educational intere ts of the entire state i n a paper pre ented at a meeting of the Maine ociat ion of allege and Preparat ry chools. The paper involved the sugge tion that a law be advocated wh ich should provide for the better education of the youth of the tate. This was brought to the attention of the Legi lature and re ulted i n our law which require that when a town doe not provide a free h igh chool it must pay the tuition of its students who attend some other h igh school or academy. It is hard to find any pha e of educat ional or religious work i n the tate ' hich ha not been touched by the efforts of olby' Pre ident, and we t ru t that in the field to \¡ h ich he goe , his untiring efforts may continue to produce definite re ults. I n a recent addre s i n Worce ter I a achu ett , the peaker had occa ion to re fer to the Bapti t Home Ii ion work and its leader , of whom President \/ 'b ite is one, and said ' ' I challenge the entire country to produce another trio of men a To the pro pect of \ ell fitted and adapted to the work to w hich they are called. ' such efficient labor, Pre ident White carrie the best w i shes of the college to which he has given some of the best years of h is life.

He prepared f o r college at Coburn Cla ical Institute, Waterv ille. He entered Colby in the fall of 1 896 and grad­ uated with the degree of Bachelor of rts in 1 900. In 1 90 1 he took up the work of Gymnasium I nstru ctor at Hebron . cademy and earned an enviable reputation there i n that department. In 1 907 he received a call to Colby, and he Ji. as given most excellent satisfaction a an i n tructor, and has brought the course of Physi­ cal Training to a h igh grade of excellence.

He told us w ith little pride and great j oy of how the college w a on it feet again, of the coming improvement in the gym and of tho e al ready made i n the fraternity houses.

A Comparison of the Style of Keats' Hyp erion and Endymion * After having carefully read a portion of these h\ o poem compared them word for word, line for l ine, sentence for entence, and page for page, I still find mysel f unfitted to give any comparison of their style. I earched in all the reference book I could mu ter, then racked and trained my mental organs until my cere­ bral hemi pheres came near dislodging them eh es from my cranial appendage, but all to no avail. I uppose I could put on a bold front and say that Hyperion i characterized by it sustained grandeur and quiet po\Yer ; but I fail to see why it ' ould not apply to Endymion j u t as well. Thomas Arnold a s that Endymion i an expansion while Hyperion i an interpretation of portions of the mythology of Greece, and i t may be the t ruth for all I know. They say Hyperion i a fragment ; o I suppose it must be a p iece that ha been broken off from some other poem. In it they say the ' ubl in<ity of the colas al shapes of the Titans contrasted ' ith the glorious beauty of the younger gods, bespeaks an imagination worthy of Dante ;'-an d I don't think there is any harm i n saying i t either. There are tyles that I could write about-and perhaps compare,-but poetic style doe not seem to be at all i n my l ine.

How I Applied 11 Penseroso Rob read endle s eulo ie on melancholy the day ' e had 1 1 Pen ero o and when he got warm d up to hi ubj ct, I began to hare his heat. I would be melan­ choly ! For twenty-four hour I would be melancholy and taste all this storied weetne . There had been nothing pecial for breakfa t that morning, no, not even nough p on to er e th cer al , and I felt ju t in the mood for the experi­ ment. I would not v n wait till n ight, which �I ilton con idered the proper time to have a fi t o f the blue . I drew down the c rner f my mouth firmly and felt rewarded when Rob gave out a p rf ct t rr r f a le n . Then I head d for the economic cla -and met th victim of p ilon Beta.

' T h e corner o f m y mouth would have needed something a s heavy a Prexy' j oke t o keep them down. However, a I didn't know a living word o f my economic le on, I had hope of feeling melancholy inside the next hour. u re enou<Yh J . Bill began the class by calling on l\ I i Campbell , ho sat in my row. You know ]. v illy' habit of mowing down a whole row ' ith one fell troke. la , for my fond expectation, he promptly requested her to peak louder becau e I r. haw "·a making o much noi e. boiled lobster i n t a circum tance to haw' face. nd then ]. \1 ill referred to that inde crib­ able article o f Ir. haw· attire which drove the Doctor out of the plaid tie busi­ nes and haw became a rival of a tin god painted red. Then, to cap the climax, the Doctor forgot all about hi grudge and ho' ed off the darling o f his heart by having haw di cou r e out o f h i '<Yeneral knowledge. I call a class l ike that an av. ful trial for anybody w ho i trying her level be t to be melancholy. Why, I was de perate. I " ent out of that room vow ing a tremendous vow that I would discover a heart-rending grief w ithin hal f an hour. Fate w a on my track. \i\ e had doughnut for lunch. ow, why in time when a phenomenon like that wouldn t happen in Foss Hall once in a twelve­ month need doughnut have elected that particular day to astonish the natives ? I t made me believe in the i rony of fate, I can tell you , but I meekly ate my dough­ nut and was thankfu l in spite of my blasted hopes.

That wasn't a d iscu ion calculated to foster melancholy. Howe er the fun n ie t part came "·hen it leaked out before long what had hap­ pened about doughnuts previou ly. One of the girls substituted for her room­ mate that day at working in the kitchen and he ate her doughnut out there. B utty made a da h for the dining- room to tell the waitresses to remove a doughnut from aid girl' table lest an extra one houl d fall a prey to ome tarving soul. And, horror of horror the waitre ses had eaten the extra doughnut ! v e get pretty hard up at Fos Hall sometime and nobody would blame the waitresses, but ho\ could the poor thing produce the doughnut which the avenging fury required at their hand ? It i better to teal than tarve a you'd real ize if you l i ved i n Foss Hall but ometimes accident happen. It wa about th is time that ' Frank ran over poor Butty feet, too. There never wa such a day a that melancholy Friday. However, there wa a geology quiz ahead and imp is a very sobering influ­ ence. I felt my hopes revive but r ll be ble ed i f imp didn't go back on me and o-ive uch an outlandi h mes of que t ion that \Ye all at there and giggled l ike so many fool at the mere thought of anybodY:s expecting us to answer !

The Football Season of 1 9 0 7 Some of us may recollect a session we had i n Memorial Hall the night before the Bowdoin game. Can an) recollect a more enthusiastic gathering, '' ere peeche ever more full of confidence ? Certainly Colby landed in third place this year not because of any lack of support on the part of the student body. There were tv. elve pre ent at the Bate game at Lewiston yet the cheering of that hand足 ful was mentioned as the best exhibit ion of the kind given for year . l o the student body backed the team this year for all they were worth. More men were out for the quad than for everal years previous. \i herein then, lay the difficulty ? Our coaching was gilt-edged ; " e may count our elves fortunate that we are to have Coach Bankhart back with u next year. Our l ine wa impreg足 nable. Few gains were made through it except by l\Iaine's heavy team. In the Bowdoin game time and again it broke through for long gain . The backs were trong,-Good i s undoubtedly the be t man on his side i n the state,-they worked well together. The difficulty was not there. The fact is our defeat resulted from the lack of an all-round team. "1\f e were good at the old play,-l ine bucking ma play were our specialtie . But the newer forward pa and onside kick we vvere unable to perfect. For one thing we had no good punter. All 1aine could do was to get " ithin striking distance of our goal and u e her star drop-kicker to gain the points. Had we had anything of the ort, Bmvdoin nor Maine nor Bates coul d have done anything w ith u . O ur fi r t game \YaS w ith Kent's Hill . Though our goal was never in danger ' e were unable to force the ball acros the preparatory school s line and the only core was from a goal kicked by Hammond. The next game with New Hamp hire tate was one of the cleanest and prettiest played. The teams were evenl) matched. New Hampshi re had had more prac足 tice than "' e, and the ball see-sa\ ed back and forth, neith e r side scoring. The Fort l\1cKinley game was sort of a farce. We tried out mo t of our men practically putting in the second team towards the end. For ome reason or other ou-r trick plays worked l ike a charm that day. Long end runs ,., ere made time and again and when the score wa given out-44-0--the other Maine colleges began to it up and take notice. Especially was this so after we had gone down to Bate and by constant line足 bucking and a succe sful forward pass beaten her 5 -0.

The Baseball Season of 1 9 0 7 Colby opened the baseball season o f 1 907 with a n exhibition game w ith Univer­ sity of Maine. The Colby team sho" ed up well both in the field and at the bat. Although there were only four men in college who played on the team last ear the game showed that the material for a creditable team was not lacking. Three pitchers w ere tried out and each proved him elf to be of 'varsity timber Maine making only three safe hit in all and the core stood 6-o in favor of Colby when the dust finally cleared a" ay. On the 26th of April the team started on the ::. I as achusett trip, defeating Tufts in a brilliantly played contest at 11edford . Good, Thomp on, and Carey were Colby' battery and j udging from the re ults did a very creditable job. The next o-arne of the trip was played again t the trong Dartmouth team. Shaw and Dwyer were on the firing line for Colby and although Dartmouth made only five hits a against Colby's six, she won rather ea ily. From H anover the team went to Burlington, ermont, where two games were played against niversity of ermont. !though un ucces ful in the line of ba eball the team enj oyed the stay at B ur­ lington very much. They were well received and hospitably treated. On Friday morning the team arrived at v aterville and, though in the particu­ lar of games won and lost the team had hardly maintained the standard set in former year , the trip was i n no way as un ucces fol as might appear. Coach Ra\ son was showing them new baseball, finding out the weak points and other­ wise getting them in line for the champion hip race in which Colby has figured so prom inently in years past. On May 8 Colby met Bowdoin in the fir t champion hip game of the ea on on lumni Field. It proved to be one of the mo t intere ting and exciting games seen here for years, lasting for ten innings and resulting in a victory for Bovv­ doin, 3-4. The game was lost by Shaw wildness at critical times. The game was a decided disappointment to Colby " ho held the lead up to the seventh inning. Saturday, May l l , Colby cro ed bats v ith \i\ aterville League team \! inning in a walk 1 8-2. Colby won the econd game from University of 1Iaine easily by a score of 6-4. She again won from Maine on May 25 at Orono, 1aine, by this time, having a grip on last place that nothing could loose. •

But over all and through all departments of the college there is an energy, an indu try, an up-to-date grasp of the general college affairs that is much more marked than has ever been the case before. At the end of the second term we were told that hardly a man from the Freshman Class had been obliged to g:ve up hi course ; a truly remarkable athletic record all along the line,-football, bas­ ketball, baseball, and track have exhibited all the year a wonderful energy and enthusiasm. There is a new strength in the rel igious atmosphere of the college ; and t he general intellectual status, it is said, has an upward trend. It has truly been a year of " renaissance"-an energetic a wakening to independence, authority, power, and ambition, that promises great things for the future.

Answers to Correspondents 1 ) No v,¡e don't con ider that particular hair-cut to be becoming to yo u r style of beaut) . \i\ e \\ ould advise that the G i l patrick, Keyes next time you need trimming up ( wh ich w il l not be for some time we suspect that you go to a j ourneyman barber and not to a j unk- tore.

Fogwell

( 1 ) Of course there i a chance for argumen t on this question. At fir t thought it seemed to u that so prominent a young man Young a your elf might find ome other occupation for your summer vacation. You know there i bound to be a certain cla of people w ho w ill look at distributing ample of pearhead chewing tobacco as a rather mean vocation e pe­ cially for a Y. I . C. A . leader and the fact that Y O U deigned to elevate it will not c hange their m inds either. There's the rub. ( 2 ) o, thi part of your inquiry i easier to ans\ er. vVe do not con ider that you did the right thing by bringi ng back o many* of the company' sample and giving them to your friends . Of cou r e it i nice to be a good generou fellow but i n 't it much better to be honest ? Mu nroe E lias

ell , now, Joe ! \\ e did gi e you credit for being posses ed w ith more sense than to a k uch a que tion. Of course, it was j u t the proper caper for you to inquire around and find out who got Ii s Thomas' tie and then trade ) our off for it if you could or, failing to do that b uy it from the other fellow even i f you did have to give all of ten cents for it. We do believe that i f we had been in your place, we would have done the ame thing regardless of expense or how the girl m ight look a t it. ( 2 ) Yes ' e certainly think that she didn 't act as tho' s h e appreciated your spending so much money all fo r h e r salu, to o . ( 3 ) Perhaps it was Condon's fault that you didn't enjoy your elf any better at that social,-we didn't think of that. J . Chandler

( I ) Yes, it is a fact that you do eem to be something of a lad killer if we are to j udge from the 11 1 1 m ber of damsels who regularly receive you. Remember that it is not ah\ ays 11 1an bers that count. ( 2 ) We weren't going to mention thi but since you have asked our opinion w e w ill say that you certainly did act l ike a goat ' in regard to t hose basG. N. Dean

No 1\Iac, we don't believe a moustache vvould coincide ' ith the rest of your phy iograph:c features. Ask imp. lf you reall) are desirous of a change, you m ight try one of Gilpat­ rick "s haircut . For heaven·s sake, don"t get but one, thou gh for more m ight make you look like him. M r . McLellan

( r :\ o . John, we don 't believe ou ought to take so many chances-e pecially in your enior year. You see if you should get caught and fined, it would be rather hard. If you ' ere a Freshman it wouldn't matter o much, but you are a Senior and President of your class, too, and o you wou1d have all the farther to fall. You got third honorary J unior part. too, o you don't have to do it to get through-if you did we couldn't blame you quite o much.

Ye . doctor, that was a cheap way to get an ORACLE to look at last summer.

Dr. B lack

Yes, I ke, it i hard to tell what Prexy could have meant w hen he asked you i f you knew to " horn you were talking. Perhaps you said something which wa rather pointed or per onal . Such things must be avoided when talking ' ith the "powers that be. " You might have told him that you were not plea ed with the wa) in which the faculty ( himsel f included ) had acted toward the dramatic club ' ithout provoking uch a question . \\ e hope you got atisfaction enough to counterbalance the sting of the rebuke. McCombe

( r ) Your communication amused u very much. Don't know . but that you are right-you do make a fine appearance on the stage ( coach . However we con ider that if you didn't think so much about it you d take better w ith the maj ority of people. ( 2 ) Ye your head is a ripper for size in more ways than one. If it swells much more you 'll have to get a garden rake or some other long-handled tool to scratch it w ith. ( 3 ) You certainly have a nice young lady friend, but we don't believe everybody is as interested in her as you are, o you should not talk o f her to the exclu ion o f everything else-it m ight tire others even if it doesn 't yourself.
