The lives of the Greeks and Romans inspired the works of Plutarch; it took a Gibbon to portray the "Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire;" but it would take a Plutarch, Gibbon and others to properly describe the history of the class of 1908. We entered C. C. I. awkward and innocent, with a lot to learn of the ways of life. Each one
An infant crying for the light, And with no language but a cry." At first we humbly remained with the crowd that curiously and nervously waiting to find out what was to become of us all. After we had been registered and assigned to our rooms in the dormitories we soon became used to the atmosphere of C. C. I. life, and rapidly responded to the call of school duty. We soon learned that the event of the week was the Friday evening social. Acquaintances sprung up, which added to our pleasure and enjoyment. By the end of the Spring term we were fully initiated, and left school delighted with the prospect of becoming upper classmen. On our returning after the summer vacation we entered a new unmolested life. We had outgrown our period of infancy, and a s young hopefuls always do, doubtless showed by our important air the opinion we held in regards to our elevated position in C. C. I. life. It was noticed that our love for C. C. I, had increased. There was a closer bond of school spirit between us, arid a more active participation was taken in school affairs. This year we experienced no trouble in "making breakfast" after the 7:15 bell had rung. W e really became quite skilled in the art. When we were novices a t this accomplishment, there were always vain scramblings about the room, a few impatient quotations in blank verse about a n unruly collar button and then a rush for the dining room, only to Rnd the door fast closed, while the merry voices of those more fortunate and the savory smell of breakfast greeted us through the key hole. By our Junior year we were fairly well developed. This year was a hard 2 one a s far a s studies went, but we successfully passed our examinations. Our

men showed up to great advantage in all lines of athletics. After a little practice a team was organized that defeated the Seniors in base-ball. The girls of the class helped out by moral support, and also by their singing. Our victory gave us the much coveted privilege of putting our numerals on the back-stop. Following this there came the spread which we gave the Seniors to bid them farewell and future happiness. To indicate their ability to strut and crow, on Class Day we presented the Senior class with a large white rooster. Their class colors were blue and white, so by means of blue dye we changed the original white feathers of the rooster's tail to a brilliant blue. We received in return another rooster with a beautiful bow of gold and white ribbon adorning his proud neck. Our last year having begun we set hard to work. We struggled on, completing the last lap of our course, which ended in joy in the form of the much coveted Senior privileges. The Senior girls won the championship in the girls inter-class basketball contests. We have made friendships which we hope may never cease. We have had the victories and defeats, that happen in all lives. Spiritually we have helped the school, humble though we may have been. We have had representatives in all branches of athletics, including the captains of both the football and track teams. Our members have appeared on both editorial boards, and also on the platform. Our achievements in scholarship and music have been of the best. The thing we now hope and will strive for, is that our path in the future may be trodden bravely and with confidence. And now the Senior class says farewell to her beloved C. C. I., whose standard she has ever striven to hold aloft.

ROBABLY the most revered, of the ancient mystical forms of worship, and the one whose secrets have been most carefully guarded are the Eleusinian Mysteries, certain sacred rites connected with the Greek religion, celebrated late in September and early in October in the ancient town of Eleusis in Attica. So far as can be ascertained the candidate who was considered worthy of admission, was escorted through a series of dark and confused passages, beset by terrifying sights and sounds but was led at last into the light. Then, by a most solemn oath they promised not to divulge what they had seen or heard. After this they enjoyed the knowledge of "those who know and see." Our four Societies are in striking contrast with these Mysteries. Our initiatory services also occur early in October and, while not in exact conformity with these ancient rites, nevertheless, it is understood that the candidate passes through the most mysterious ceremonies, consisting of spectacular symbols and solemn rites, designed to impress the trembling victim with the tortuous path of life, with its many perils, trials and disturbing elements through which one may go and come out safely into the light and joy of a happy fellowship of dear companions, who will assist in striving after the high ideal and true standard of a successful life. We too are bound by most stringent oaths to maintain in absolute secrecy all that may transpire in our initation work and meetings. Of the four present Literary Societies, two were founded shortly after the opening of the school in 1874. These were the Dioksophian, an organization for the young ladies, and Whitney Lyceum, formed by the young men. 'Six years after, on account of the increased number of students in the school, and in order to secure better results, it was considered advisable to form two more societies to correspond to the two already existing. Therefore, in 1880, the Peithosophian Society, among the young ladies, and the Philomathean Fraternity, among the young men, were established. The Philomathean, however, later became the Zeta Chapter of the Alpha Phi Fraternity. These organizations stand strongly for the highest and noblest sentiments, for the development of executive ability, for the advantages of public speaking and literary pursuits, and weld their members in an indissoluble bond of love and fellowship. They are now in a prosperous condition. All have delightful and well equipped halls in which to hold their meetings. The fondest recollections of students leaving the school are these assemblies, where so many happy and profitable hours are spent.

Let Blair Hall's royal Blu- and White Be ever fair to see, And may we cheer our rivals bold With songs so glad and free. Our hearts are with the Blue and Black, And may we never sever The tie that binds our hearts to thee, Dear C. C. I. forever.
Oh may the boys of other schools Throw out a mighty cheer, But song and yell that rise from us Must ever be more clear, Our hearts are with the Blue and Black, And may our great endeavor Raise high the glorious Blue and Black And C. C. I. forever.

LTHOUGH it hasn't the greatest number of victories to its credit, Captain Fuller's 1907 team was sthe best football representation that C. C. I. has had since the fire in 1899. The team started out with rather poor prospects. Because of the non-appearance of Capt. Urner it was necessary to choose another to fill the vacancy. Fuller, right tackle of the '06 team, was selected for the position and men were soon forthcoming from the scrubs and new men to fill the ranks, that were thinned by the graduation of some of our best players and the inability to return on the part of others upon whom we had counted greatly. The team started in with a defeat at the hands of the Lafayette Sophomores but retrieved this by an easy victory over the Lafayette Freshmen. Two defeats were administered by Erasmus Hall and Princeton Prep. respectively. Following this our eleven greatly improved in form CAPT. FULLER. and speed; several valuable men, who had been out of the game on account of injuries rejoined the team and victory again fell to cur lot. The High School of Commerce succumbed to defeat; Bethlehem Prep., although outplayed in every stage of the game tied us. Peddie Institute wadtthe next victim to fall before our victorious eleven. The final game of the season was with our friendly rivals, Blair Hall. Our team went to Blairstown, played them to a standstill, upset their cal-
culations of an easy victory, and for the first time since '99 prevented them from scoring against us. In consideration of the fact that Blair Hall since that time had always triumphed over us by a large margin we can justly say, that the 1907 eleven was superior to all of its predecessors. The outiook for the 1908 team under the captaincy of A. R. Crane seems to be very bright, as few positions are vacated by graduation. The '07 team extends its best wishes to the '08 aggregation, realizing that under the matchless leadership and instruction of our esteemed coach, Professor Denman, it cannot fail to hold aloft the banners of the Blue and Black.

H E baseball team of 1907 undoubtedly would have made just as good a showing as its predecessor, had it not happened that two of the regular players were forced to leave the team before the season was completed. However the work done by the substitutes was satisfactory to our coach, who by his untiring and valuable instruction made possible, even under these difficulties, such a good showing. The loss of Valden and W. De Mott is most keenly felt at C. C. I for these two men were easily the life of the team. Valden as a catcher is widely known. His batting was always of the highest order, and a man who can fill his position as well will be hard to find. De Mott had the highest batting average of the year, and, the number of stolen bases to his credit more than double those of his nearest competitor. He made a most creditable showing at first base, although 1907 was his first year at that position. Such valuable men as Goodell, Osborn, Simmons, Urner, Skllenwerf and Coddington are greatly missed and surely desewe very honorable mention. The men who returned to us of' the 1907 team were Irving, Brewster and H. De Mott. All have had considerCAPT. DEMOTT. able experience and all are pitchers of no mean ability. Irving and Brewster are also good in-fielders, fast base-runners and average batters. H. De Mott has been on the team four years and is without a peer among preparatory school pitchers. His pitching always recelhes wide attention and most favorable newspaper comment. He is furthermore a good batter and out-fielder.

READY TO LINE IT OUT. A T A CRITICAL TIME. THE GRANDSTAND. " N O W FOR A PRETTY ONE, 'HISSEN.' "
CAPT. DEMOTT '08.
RACK athletics since its first introduction into C. C . I. in 1904, has had a remarkable career. Great credit is due to the members of the 1906-07 team for maintaining so well such a proud record. The relay team on January 25, 1907, easily secured first place in the Preparatory School Relay Race a t the Columbia University Indoor Games. Again in April it ran in the National Relay Championships for Preparatory Schools a t Philadelphia, winning second place to Hill School, in almost a dead heat. The track team which consisted in nearly every case of about six men, including the members of the relay team, made its first appearance a t the Poly Prep. Games in Brooklyn, N. Y. First place was denied to us, however on account of a n accident to Captain Faraday's foot. In the New York University games o u r loss was practically caused by the unfortunate arrangement of events in which our men were entered. Coming a s they did, the events did not permit our representatives to do justice to themselves. At the Columbia Games w e were decisively beaten by Newark Academy. At the Pingry meet we again secured a =APT. FARADAY. second place. The last meet of the season, and the one on which o u r efforts were focused, we won. This was the Wesleyan meet. Two new Interscholastic Records were made in this meet, a s well a s two new school records, which were made by Faraday and Camp, the former covering the 440 yds run in 51 seconds and the latter accomplishing the half mile in 4 min. 4 4-5 sec. An additional school record was made in the 220 yard hurdles by Kilpatrick, time 27 4-5 sec. If we s t o to ~ consider the large number of entries which other schools made in the' meets in comparison with the few who represented the Blue and the Black, the greatest credit i s due to o u r men for winning the laurels that they did; and thereby giving C. C. I. a high ranking in Track Athletics.

MONG the numerous sports at C. C. I. that it has been the habit to grow enthusiastic over, tennis was practically omitted prior to the year 1905. In the spring of that year a tournament was held, resulting in Harold Sloan securing the first medal with Finlay and Benjamin following close behind. In the spring of 1906 the game was indulged in to a certain extent, but no regular tournaments were arranged. The next year Professor Tressler, a graduate of Syracuse University and R member of her tennis team, volunteered to coach our fellows, and to pick the four best men to play against Blair Hall. The team consisting of Hughes, Cutler, Hildreth and Flower met the Blairstown representatives on the 27th of April on our home courts. The Academy team proved the stronger, securing all three singles and the two doubles. On the first of June our team, changed by the withdrawal of Hughes and the substitution of Ferry, played a return tournament at Blairstown, and although we did not win, we made a much better showing and probably would have changed the tide of battle if our best man, Frank Hughes, had not been ill and unable to play. In the beginning of the year 1908 two more tournaments were arranged with Blair Hall, but owing to the fact that the "Hack" went to press before the teams met one another we are unable to record the result. Our courts are made of sand, are carefully graded, and as a result are very fast. We think that C. C. I. has cause to feel elated since tennis has assumed a place in the list of her athletic activities. 2

N the 31st day of May, 1907, the Senior Class introduced a new idea in our school, in the form of the May Day Exercises. The affair was a most pronounced success, and afforded great pleasure to both those who participated and to those who were fortunate enough to be spectators. Early in the morning a pole had been placed on the girls' campus in front of the school. From it were suspended various colored ribbons, the Blue and White of the Senior Class being most prominent. All of the student body had been invited to attend the ceremonies. The day was particularly adapted to such an affair. The air was calm and quiet; not a branch swayed nor a leaf stirred. Old Buck Hill reared its lazy head in the sunshine; the white clouds hovered caressingly over Schooley's Mountains; the birds sung and twittered in the trees; and gayety and happiness reigned supreme. At a given signal the Seniors began their stately procession which was headed by the Queen, Miss Beryl Norton, beautifully attired in a white gown; and Mr. Robert Ferry as King. Upon the completion of the march different booths were opened where candies and other refreshments were placed on sale. Potato, sack, foot and relay races added much to rhe interest and pleasure of the day. Another interesting part of the program was the very pleasing address made by Professor Denman, in which he told of the origin of May Day and described the ceremonies of its observance. After the program was ended the students retired to the dormitories everybody enthusiastic in the opinion that they had had a most enjoyable time.

Monday Evening, J u n e 10, 1907. O n e of the most pleasant features of o u r school year was the Junior Spread which was held on Monday evening, J u n e 10th.

I. buildings, eight years ago, was held. The boys' "gym" was very appropriately decorated with cornstalks, autumn leaves, and pumpkins. The masquers arranged themselves in pairs and marched around until the judges had made their decisions. A vocal solo by Miss Lila Ward accompanied by Mr. Roy Brewster was very well rendered. Following this was a very inspiring address by Rev. Mr. Mooney of the class of '85. The indoor program was terminated by the school chorus singing "My old Kentucky Home." The students then adjourned to the back campus for the Salamander Celebration. The Seniors headed the procession, followed by the Juniors and Underclassmen. Then came the Vestal Virgin, Miss Efie C. Lawrence, and the Fire Orator, Mr. Hubert D. Jones. Dr. Noble, Rev. Mr. Mooney and the members of the faculty brought up the rear. The Fire Orator gave an interesting talk on the old and new C. C. I. The Vestal Virgin gave a pleasing address after which she applied the torch to the model of the old C. C. I. While the fire was burning, the students sang songs and gave the good old school yells after which they retired to the dormitory greatly impressed by the "All Hallowe'en and Salamander Celebration."

The results of the fray a r e a grateful old man. a number of broken heads, and the rescuer somewhat of a hero. The facts a r e these: Hearing cries for help and the scurrying of feet, our brawny, long-limbed and generaly modest citizen, rushed to the scene of action, and plunged into the fight. Grasping the nearest of these robbers by the neck he threw h ~ m heavily to the paveAent ; a second was tr pped up and sent sprawling into the gutter, from whence he failed to arise having cracked his head on th$ sharp curb ; and the others fearing to encounter a similar fate, took to their heels. Meantime the hero of the hour escorted the old gentleman home. I t has been ascertained in a quiet manner (probably through our honored citizen's wife) that the old man was beholden for his rescue to A.

THE GAB AND GOSSIP. METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART.
Accepts Famous Artist's Work. New York City, June 2, 1908.The Metropolitan Museum of Art are charging special rates on Tuesday and Thursday of each week, on which days they have on exhibition some rare drawings of Mr. Harold Fellows, which have attracted the attention of masters and a r t students of this and foreign countries, which ensure their author a prominent place among modern artists.
The drawings in question are those which Mr. Fellows made for "Tho 1908 Hack," published by the students of Centenary Collegiate Institute and i t has been only after mucli expense and negotiation that the Museum secured thesu remarkable productions. Mr. Fellows is extremely jealous of his works, and objects to having them copied or even photographed, and we, therefore conslder ourselves very fortunLte in that we are able to show to our readers minute and exact reproductions of Mr. Fellows' drawings a s they were printed in the "Hack." being photographs of the originals themselves.
GREAT LITERARY CRITIC'S ADVICE TO YOUNG AUTHORS.
Princeton, N. J., May 30 1908 -The "Great Cham" of ~ n ~ l i Literature Professor Joseph Cooke lpitts, recently published a n a r ticle in one of -the monthly reviews giving special instructions to adventurers in the fleld of literature. We here give a s much of this article as we think can be assimilated a t one reading. Among other things Professor J . C. Fitts' hints: "Momentary reflections upon any of the ancient writers a r e permissible ; a!ter prefixing such preambles as, conformins to the idionlatic hieroglyphics of the Hebrews ;' or as , the qlassical Greek would say : or quotin! from that fanlous Roman o r a t o r ; or 'that maqterfu! German scholar well states. or the coufteous Frenchman ' woul? put it ; and even reference might be made, to English literature beginning, ex-
pressed in the profane language of the hnglish speaking race; then, quote afler each, the apt ~llustration in its original char-
actera." - --- --
Prof. Fitts further s a y s : "In promulgating esoteric cogitations, do n o t allow your cere5rum ta interchange reminiscences with the cerebellum, whereby the superflcial sentimeutalities would bewilder the mental capacity 01 the peruser of such a conglomeration of grayish matter. "Beware of insipidities ; 01 circuitous expatiatlonn upon t r u t h ; of occult and insidioux castigations of explanatory r a m ifications on the nart of contemporaneons authors. "Finally, let your statements possess coalesant consistency, concentrated cogency, illuminating simplicity, and well-rounded conclusiveness."
SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Plays to
Boston, Mass., June 2, 1908.The musical concert given last evening in the auditorium has been pronounced by the critics to have been the loudest ever heard in Boston. The seating capacity and also the standing room of the spacious building were taxed to the utmost, and most of the seats were occupied long before the Axed time for commencement. The reputation which John V. Jacobson's Symphony Orchestra has gained in Baltimore. Philadelphia New York and lately in ~ h l c a g d , has been tremendously augmented by his last performance in this city.

This measure is being bitterly opposed by a number of Assemblymen under the leadership of T. Cook as it provides for a mode of pbnishment which is entirely new namely that one convicted unde: the ne; law will be compelled to write fllty-thousand numbers (60,000 NUMBhRS) every day of imprisonment. They say that Mr. Stiehler's own experience with the manner of punlshment under consideration renders his arguments cloubly eRective.
