A. E. Anderson, '88, paid a visit to
old alumni at the University last Tues
day, .no is at present engaged In
ranching with headquarters at Geneva,
Nebraska. Mr. Anderson la a brother-in-law
of Ida Robblns, and also of C.
B. Robulns, '98. Tho appearance of Mr.
Anderson was sufficient to recall to his
old University friends an incident of
his senior year in which he took an
active part, not through his own In
It was In December 1887. Although
early In the school year, tho strife be
tween tho two upper classes had al
ready shown itself. Tho seniors had
planned a meeting of a social character
out on South Seventeenth street. Far
enough away to Insure peaco they
thought. But long beforo the mem
bors had assembled, tho place of meet
ing was surrounded by tho enemy.
Every bush, fence, and out houso In
tho vicinity sheltered one or more
juniors ever on tho alert.
At the appointed timo a concentrat
ed attack was inailo on tho unsuspect
ing seniors. Ah a result (Jvo of the
latter woro bound and carried away
desplto their struggles. Tho captive!
woro carried a half mile away to the
old baso ball park which was at Nine
teenth and R streets. Here, ono of
tho prisoners, J. A. Barrett, after tug
ging at his bonds succeeded in loos
ing them, and slipped away In the
darkness. By following a circuitous
path, across tho fields of stubble, up
alleys, and through back yards, ho
succeeded in again Joining his assoc
iates Tho four remaining A. E. Anderson,
O. B. Polk, J. R. Scofleld, and C.'S.
LobJngor, woro more securely bound,
then 'loaded Into a wagon and taken
Into Iho country. After a drlvo of
about an hour tho human freight was
deposited In a barren widely separa......
.rom any habitation.
By assisting each other tho four
deserted ones were soon freed. Af
ter stretching their stiffened limbs
they started on tho weary six mile
tramp back to civilization.
Each one sought tho seclusion of his
own homo except Anderson. His in
jured spirit longed for revenge and ho
nurrled toward tho police station. Ac
companied by a "Cop" he started to
tho scene of the capture. Prior to
this tho seniors, by a sortie from the
house, had succeeded in capturing two
juniors who portrayed tho wen known
features of Logan Stevens and D. D.
Forysythe. They fed these gener
ously on vinegar, bread, and im.k and
like delicacies, and then freed them.
They had just adjourned and were
leaving for home, when Anderson ap
peared. Although tho janitors were
still In the vicinity, none of them
were kind enough to deliver them
selves. So the man with tho brass
coat and blue buttons was compelled
iO r turn empty-handed and Mr. An
derson went to his room to attempt
to drown his sorrow In soothing
