The old boys tell some pretty good
ones. Seated comfortably on the Un-
ion porch, the students of the earlier
days spin yarns that put the under-
grad to blush. And that's where J. H.
Flagg, '72, of Chicago, comes in strong.
"Humph," and he chuckles as he
glances over his 1912 model clothes,
"I had five dollars to my name when
I signified my intention of earning a
sheepskin. But I was steward of a
boarding club," and again he chuckled
reminiscently, "and-er my knowledge
of the surrounding orch'ards and tur-
key roosts stood me in good stead. We
didn't have a Joe's to rave abput, in
those days, but it was Hank's place
then. Hank used to run a confection-
ary store, cafe, dance hall and board-
ing house-all in the same building.
That was some place-but, er--where
is that man Joe located?"
John Richards, of Flint, is the oldest
Michigan grad on the ground at pres-
ent. He is from the class of '57, and
no one is prouder to cheer for the uni-
versity than the linguist of 81 years.
He recounts many tales of the early
happenings, all tinged with a remark-
able youthfulness of expression.
"When I was a medical student,"
said Dr. Henry Boss, '87, of Holland,
"we used to hold our class rushes in
the building itself. One time aftel a'
hearty battle had been waged about
the ears of one hotly enraged contest-
ant, we were chagrined to discover
that the bedraggled figure was that of
a Professor Sewell. And our postof-
fice riot rivalled the Star theater inci-
dent of some years ago. Oh we were
wild ones all right."
,52's Pathetic Tale.
Rendered doubly sad in sharp relief
against the gayety of Celebration
class in the university.
All year Judge Alfred Otis, Atchison,
Kan., and Rev. Belville Porter, Nor-
ristown, Pa., had been corresponding,
in eager anticipation of another reun-
ion of the famous class of '52. Plans
were laid, and preparations were un-
der way. Then Porter, alarmed at the
faat that several of his recent letters
to Otis had been unanswered, wrote to
the local alumni association for infor-
mation regarding his old classmate.
The reply came back that Judge Por-
ter had died on May 6.
So a vacant chair in the "Class of '52

wish of Porter's comrade of former
years bade him attend the Anniver-
sary Celebration, the coming -of the
oldest graduate is eagerly awaited.
'it Was the Hottest Rush, Sir."
But they all disagree on one point,'
"I want the alumni to know
that we welcome them back to
their old Alma Mater" said Dr.
Angell, yesterday. We are doing
everything we can," he contin-
ued, "to make them feel at

Even the good Bishop Burch, '75, tells
of the massacre of '74, in which the
contestants fought until aides from
other classes rushed to the affray, to
bring sound clothing for the battlers.
Scenes of rushes have shifted from
the stairways of the buildings and the
classrooms, to medic green, the law
building front, and after the street
rushes, to Ferry field. Nor were the
rushes either confined to any definite!
period, or ruled by limitations and re-
strictions. Everything but sledge ham-
mers or bolo knives were fair. And

FOR OLD GRADS,
To the old grad coming back for the
first time in many years, the campus
presents a far different appearance
with its many decorations than it does
ordinarily. For the past few days
a large force of workmen have been
engaged in transforming it into forty
acres of festive beauty.
A long row' of arches and poles, top-
ped with various colored pennants,
leads up to University hall. Above the
entrance to this building, in the midst
of maize and blue bunting is a blue
electric sign "Salvete"--Welcome-
standing out where all may realize the
spirit of hospitality extended to the
many visitors. The dome is outlined
with hundreds of incandescent lights
which make a fine appearance when
viewed from a distance. The towers
of the library are also wreathed with
Ropes on which are hung many dif-
ferent flags and pennants have been
stretched from the flag pole in front
of the library in different directions
and make this one of the beauty spots
of the campus.
However the work has not been con-
fined to university class circles alone.
Many of the merchants have displayed
the maize and blue colors in honor of
he Celebration, and have enlivened
he appearance of the business section.
