those furious youths paraded that is all
which was surprisingly and obstreperously
original enough to bo remombered.
And the moral of this is Charter Day
for the next five years is going to bo a slow
affair. Wo used up all bur traditions then,
a college tradition must bo at least ten
years old, we honored all our great men,
wo nearly bankrupted the world's stock of
scarlet and cream, wo vented so much col
lege spirit that wo had to begin fighting
again to raise some more, we grew just con
siderably tired of ourselves. So we must
recuperate, and ao The Hesperian makes
its excuse for not getting out a special issue
this Charter Day. To the student who has
never seen our fifty-page issue of last year,
we say, get a copy from an old student and
read all the old traditions of your Alma
Mater. Only, remember we are long past
the age when we can alarm the natives by
huge Bigns of "Cash for Stiffs," or scatter
the Physics prof by any sort of dynamite.
THE CHARTER DAY ORATOR.
Andrew V. V. Raymond, D. D., L. L. D.,
was called to the presidency of Union Col
lege a year ago. He is less than forty years
of ago, and graduated from Union College
in 1875. His career as a student was marked
by the wide range of his interests. He did
excellent work in the class-room; performed
marvelous feats on the baseball field; was a
graceful writer; a popular orator; a favorite
in social circles. In 1878 he graduated
from tho Now Brunswick Theological Semi
nary, and has ever since been engaged in
the University. In tho pulpit he is an ad
vanced thinker, a luminous teachor, and a
forceful orator. The degree of D. D. was
bestowed upon him only eleven years after
-graduation. His personality is magnetic,
and his energy inexhaustible. Dr. Ray
mond has tho power of bringing all latent
enthusiasm to tho surface. Tho University
is to bo heartily congratulated upon having
so eminent and well known a man for its
Charter Day orator. We expect a great
treat, and are certain of only pleasant dis
appointments in listening to his address.

THE COMING LEGISLATION.
Oh, fame's the thing
Of which we sing,
With all our vocal natures;
For that alone
Cracks hearts of stone,
In 'braska legislatures.
For when they see
How famous we
Are growing in the nation,
They'll get a move,
With our "approve,"
On golden legislation.
Oh, let us work,
No lessons shirk,
Obey all our dictators;
Then if in time
We forswear rhyme,
We may be legislators.
Then, we will Ngive,
That we may Hvej
In Memory's bright May,
Or a billi n,
On every Charter Day.
