TnB Seniors decided, at their last meet

commencement week. We hope the class
of '94: will render themselves famous by

political science, literature, history and art,

the wildest even thinking Finch deserved
first place. Wesleyan it seems, placed
infinite confidence on Shank, which con

by Shank himself. The orations of Finch
and Shank shou'.d go down to posterity as
monuments of what orations should not be.
They touched every great man and every
great deed in history, and then, apparently
