THE t HESPERIAN The reminiscences of University life iu the late 70's by Miss Ellen Smith, given before the Old Settlers Association, were decidty in teresting. Miss Smith has been here guard ing credits, frowning on 'fresh' upstarts and coaching faculty-members for full twenty years. Chancellors and Acting-Chancellors have come and gone; faculties have formed and vanished; classes have entered, and wrangled and been graduated; buildings have been erected; trees have grown green and old; a hedge fence has given place to one of iron; departments have been added; numbers have increased from 132 to near 2,000 and Miss Ellen Smith is still with us The one fixture of the University structure, the one permanent abiding member ol the student organism. Her place is one of high honor in all ways. All hail to the Registrar!. May she stay another twenty! Colloff oi'Ltnv .NoM;. 11. B. Daly '98 has re-entered the college.

Now and then some new-very new-young chap rounds his lips and sends it forth to chafe ones ears, but the species is nearly extinct. He must be very verdant or else exceeding young. But what a lot of company the daring jingle has. Away back there we hear the notes of 'Comrades,' then the strains of 'Annie Booney,' later we consigned to everlasting oblivion such tender gems as 'After the Ball' and 'Two Little Girls in Blue. And now 'A Hot Time' is vanishing. What a lot of icon oclastic beings we are! We love a thing just for 'a day' without the 'forever' and then the rag heap, the scrap bag. or the measureless region of 'forgets' becomes its place of doom. Some jaunty jingle, easily learned and as easily forgotten, suits the ear and then the foolish maiden and the foppish boy, the an cient matron and the angelic furnace-tender all catch up the strain and the air vibrates with the notes. But the 'Hot Time' is hardly warm any more; it is getting cold, almost icy. It is frigid and soon we shall add to the pleasant 'going' the happy 'gone. ' A-miou;? i lie G reels w.
