The Freshman Banquet Passes off
in a Blaze of Glory. Tne
Sophs weren't in it.
The threatened sophomore inter-
ferance of the annual freshman
banquet, which was held last even-
ing in Granger's hall, did not
materialize, and that event passed
off most enjoyably to all who were
present. The rain evidently kept
upper classmen away to some extent,
and the few burly sophomores who
did come around were huddled to-
gether like a flock of sheep and
looked longingly towards the
the building and respectfully to-
wards the guards who were protect-
ing the main entrance. They pre-
sented a very forlorn appearance
The freshmen began to arrive
about half past eight, and a little
after nine the literary exercises of
the evening began. President
Choate opened up the banquet by
briefly reviewing the history of the
year since the class entered the
University last fall. He then in-
troduced the class historian, Miss
Effie Danforth, who narrated in a
most pleasing style the various
achievements of the class of '96.
Miss Danforth was followed by Mr.
A. H. Tuttle, who proved by his
delivery and wit that the class had
made no mistake in its selection of
orator. The class prophecy was
read by Miss H. E. Dryer, and the
futures she assigned to various
members of the class caused con-
siderable laughter and amusement.
The only one who did not respond
was Miss Collins, who had the class
poem. It was rumored that sie
was spirited away by some soph,-
more girls, but this is not known
for sure.
At the conclusion of the literary
exercises, President Choate handed
the affair over to the toastmaster of
the evening Mr. E. M. Holland,
who without very much cermony
bid the assembled guests to "fall
to.' At the conclusion of the ban-
quet, the following toasts were re-
sponded to:
'Ihe Class-----B-- -- --- ---- H. B. Otis
"Ta Perish Never."
The Girls-- - - - H.S. Goodell
"He who despises woman is a fool."
The Faculty....--...0.. G. F. Greenleaf
"A penny for your thoughts."
The Boys----------------------Miss R. M. Tuttle
"Young fellows will be young fellows."

TieIndependents- ----..--H.0. Hoyt
"Independence now, indindependeice
Thei Fraternities-.-.--....eNormanvflowers
" I could a tale unfold."
Anmi: Navter..----.......w. iW. liKerr
"Dear to-day, but dearer to-morrow. ,
Mr. Holland made an excellent
toast-master, havi ng at his command
a great number of stories and inter-
esting anecdotes.
On the dance program there were
twenty numbers and ten extras.
Honors were paid to Terpsichore
until about fire o'clock this morn-
The chaperones were Mrs. James
It. Angell, Mrs. P. R. de Pont,
Mrs. Morris, and Mrs. Keating.
In Her Majesty's Honor.
The Canadian club met last night
in the law building and after an in-
teresting literary program, decided
to invite three prominent members
of the Dominion parliament to at-
tend the banquet at the Cook House
on the 24th, in honor of the Queen's
A debate was held: "Resolved,
That it would be in the interests of
the Dominion of Canada to sever
her British connection and become
an independent nation.'' This sub-
ject would tend to show that a great
many thinking Canadians favor
national independence instead of
annexation to the United States.
Lecture by Prof. Scott.
Prof. Fred N. Scott will lecture
next Monday before the Inland
League, on "Some Pictures Worth
Seeing at the World's Fair.'' Prof.
Scott will have fifty stereoptican
views and the lecture will be of par-
ticular interest not only to the mem-
bers of his classes, but to everyone.
Literary Societies to Contest.
The Alpha Nu-Adelphi contest,
which was postponed from last Satur-
day, will be held to-morrow evening in
room 24. Prof. McLaughlin will be
the presiding officer, and Miss Volland
will furnish the music. Following is
the program:
Music, Miss Volland; oration, J. B.
Brooks; declamations, F. B. Reynolds
and W. Klingler; society papers, T.
Stern and F. W. Newton; debate, W.
W. Griffin, F. S. Hinkley, J. Dearborn,
S. R. Cook; music, Miss Volland.
