port. A corporal's guard in attend-

Reminiscences of an Alumnus.
In responding to his toast at the re-
cent Detroit banquet the Hon. William
F. Quinby, '58, recently minister of the
United States at the court of the Neth-
erlands and president-elect of the De-
troit association, gave the following
"Recognizng the fact that at my
time of life one has little to loo for-
c ard to, your worthy president has
asked me to 'look backward' and say
a word on the University of forty years
ago. The class of 1858 entered with s
eighty-three, a number equalling the
three upper classes combined. What-
ever may be said of the class, it has
at least this to recommend it, its loy-
alty to the University. It has most
faithfully kept, all these years, the class
"One never forgets the impression
made by the first sight of his Amsta
Mater. On the Campus were six build-
ings, the old North and South halls,
now united by University Hall, the
medical building, since enlarged, and
four professors' houses, respectively or-
c'pied by the president, Prof. O. E.
Haven, Prof. Williams and Prof. Boise.
There were in the literary department
twoecourses, the classical and scientific
the latter recently established, the, first
class of two, the Harter brothers, grad-
uating in 1855. The combined curricu-
lum hardly equalled that of the ordin-
ary village academy. The dormitory
system had not been wholly eliminated,
but speedily gave way to the needs of
class rooms. Everything was of the
most primitive character. Stodern im-
provements had not yet made their ap-
"At morning chapel all the students
were assembled in one recitation room.
Attendance was compulsory. The hour
vas 8 a. m. Quite early enough on a
cold winter's morning for those who
lived far from the University."-Alum-
The U. of M. medical faculty an-
nounces that diplomas will be granted
tw good students in the senior class
if they wish to enlist for the proposed
war with Spain. Many members of
fraternities are boiling over at President
McKinley's delay, while the professors
are jubilant. Prof. Worcester, wno ad-
vocates war, is being liberally joshed
by the rest of the faculty members.
Ann AeberArgus: Miss Elsa Von
Grace, teacher of pians) playing at the
School of Music, has been engaged at
soloist of the Boston Festival orchestra.
She will appear with that organization
in concerts at Madison, Wis., Mil-
waukee, Wis., Saginaw, Mich., Ogdens-
burg, N. V., Pittsburg, Pa., and other
large cities. Ann Arbor's reputation
as a musical center is greatly enhanced
by having in her school of music such
superb artists as Prof. Alberto Jonas
and Miss von Grave have shown them-
seves to be.
President Harrison, of the U. of M.
Anti-Saloon league, addressed a league
rally at the Albion college chapel last
night. The 200 students present voted
unanimously to organize a league il the
Mr. W. H. Wilcox has just returned
from his home where he was called by
the death of his mother.
