Scientific couisc for the classical. As punishment they had
to graduate with '91 Instead ol '90, the class ol their choice.
Their acquaintances know the Misses Rogers as two indus
trious, pleasant, and sociable young ladics,who will do much
to make the class of '91 far-famed.
William Jamas Taylor, or "Billy" Taylor as he is affec
tionately called, during his college days, has been fond of
addressing classic epistles to 4My dearest Stella." His
affection for cirls is excelled only by his loVe for whiskers.
When the barber mistaking for a weeks growth of wool his
side burns specially grown for graduating day, moved off the
tawny decoration just In front of the cars, Mr. Taylor waxed
wroth to an unusual degree. Unless "My dearest Stella"
consents to caie (01 him, he will probably put in his time
educating the Ameiican youth.
Miss Edith Mineiva Brace is one of the scientific girls, college
and like all the '91 girls, is very nice. The boys are sure of
it, and the girls do not deny it. What Miss Brace expects
to do is noi known to The Hesperian, but unless we are
mistaken, no man, however long his whiskers, will ever
persuade her to stay at home and wash dishes.
Charles Buckingham Gregory. Charlie is a descendant
of Gregory XIII, and now holds in his possession the oiig
Inal calciulai as patented by that illustrious ancestor, li's
fair countenance always canies a broad smile. He is ol
medium height, and if reduced to fighting weight, would
piobably enter the ting as a lightweight.
Walking Telescope Blown is one of the more 01 less dig
nified members of the class. At times Will is as solemn as
the hired mouineis at a funeral, but when lie is out at camp
and at some othei times he is one of the bojs. He is gifted
in talking to the joung ladies and has spent a considerable
part of his spaie time in that way. He has been a hard-
woiking student and has stood well in his classes. He is
above the medium height, someu hat stooped and not much
of an athlete. He will cany ofi as the result of his labois
the degree of B. A., a commission as first lieutenant and the
best wishes of his fellow students, lie is a graduate from
the classical couisc, has a solid giil, will probably become a
preacher, marry a few couples just for practice, and then get
married himself, lie is not spoken foi, as far as the editor
knows, and would make a gook prize for a oung lady who
its a gocd cook.
David Aveiy Ilaggaul is the nimiod of the class. Quite
frequently he may be seen in his bird-hunting costuni sf-our-'
ing'the country in seaich of game. He is rather short, tree
from whiskeis, quite good looking, is inclined to lie a little
bow-legged and as a result "is quite successfr' i curve
-pitcher, although he very seldom plays in a 1 ue of ball.
Tie is a graduate of the scientific course, and captain of Co.
C of the univeisity cadets.
Per Axel Rydberg is a native of Sweden and a graduate
of one of the Swedish univeisities, which with the necessary
work in English entitled him to the degiee of B. Sc. from
the U. of N. Mr. Rydberg has beenwith us but one yeai,
but he has made many friends. He is a very close student
and conscientious worker. In appearance he is rather slim,
light complected, wears, perhaps the prize moustache ol the
claSs. Although giving most of his time to hard work, he
' can take a few moments rest occasionally and allow his mind
1o play with lighter work. As a humorist he leads the class.
"Just why Mr. Rydberg is a single man may be hard toguess,
lor he is old enough to get married, and certainly knows
' enough; perhaps "he knows too much to get married.
'"' John B: "Fogarty is one of the best known members of the
class. He has had considerable distinction in the "oratorical
line and is a good writer and was the big man on Til". Hus
rERUN for r j car-.' Mr. Fogarty has taken considerable
interest in college politics, which, w ith law m prospect, indi
cate that congress will yet provide a camp chair for John,
lie has also some inclination toward the matrimonial line and
may be one of a pair before many "months. John has made
a good record in his studies and will Take a diploma from the
classical department, but no military honois.
Sarah Schwab is one of the jolly, good-humored, happy
girls of the class. She has black hair, black eyes that can
pierce through a stone wall, and a heavy masculine voice
that would win an oratorical contest of itself. Miss Schwab
is prominent in social circles. She has been on the fair road
to marriage but is still with us.
Albeit Alfred Faurot is a lieutenant in the battallion, is a
graduate of the literary course, and has taken full work in
politics. He usually wears a sort of tioubled look
on his dark face. Some think that he met a disappointment
in a love affair when he was young. Be that as it may how
ever, when he gets to talking he is usually one of the jollicst
boys in school. Mr. Kaurot is a little below the average
height, is a middle weight, and dark complected; he has a
senior mustache about the size and color of the head of a
mourning pin; he has acquired no solid giil while in school,
and is still unspoken for,
Bert Wheeler is a pleasant gentleman to meet, and always
seems to be in a happy mood, inclined to be moie quiet than
loquacious. He is about medium height, very fair featuied,
and a fit subject foi the smiles of the fair ones. He grad
uates from the literary department with a good record behind
Guy P. Thuiber is one of the odd geniuses of the class.
He walks and cairies his head in such a manner that he
might appear to a stranger as a haughty capitalist, but such
is not the case. Mr. Thurber is a modest, humble, indus
trious person, and one of the best dulled men in the military
Mr. J. W. McCrosky is one of the few seniors for whom
we dare predict a brilliant future. This is an age of special
ists. "Jim" is one of these. Electrical engineering is one
of his specialties. There is anothci. "Witness his method
of scratching the Palladian slate for commencement week.
At present he is -"gaged in a bicycle race with Clrrk of '9S.
He applies electiical phraseolog) to everything. He "volts"
into the saddle and at piesent is seven laps ahead of Clark;
just the number of enteitaiumcnts given dining commence
ment week. "Mac" will spend the greater pait of the sum
mer at the Beatrice chalnuqua.
It is with a mingling of hesitation and regret that we
nppioach the name of C. C. Fletcher.. We had had hopes
for the boy. lie was so quiet, so modest, so unassuming
that we had hoped he would go through school without
trying to laisc that seemingly necessary insignia of senior
dignity a moustache. But It came at last. Weak, and
straggling at first, by proper care and attention, it soon
acquired the necessary droop, and on the whole gives promise
of becoming a fairly good w ind break. Any one who thinks,
that "Flctch" ib confining his attentions too strictly to one
girl his sister, would do well to happen along near the high
school grounds, any bright afternoon, about 4 o'clock. He
will Find ""r letch" there, and not alone.
In the university competitive drill Sergeant Barkley -wasf
awarded the first prize in the individual infantry drill; ICor
poral Richmand took the second. The prizes in the individ
ual artillery drill were awaredd to Corporals Tcdlesak and
. The inspector-gerieral'said that the cadets of the U. of N.
1 Ipassed as favorable"an inspection as any univei shy "battalion
he had visited.
