Miss Edna D. Bullock, the only lady on the class, now
came forward in an easy, pleasing manner. In her oration,
"New Italy and Cavour," she did not depreciate the value
to Italy of Victor Imtnanuel making Rome the capital of his
kingdom, but it was Cavour who united and saved Italy;
who was Italy's constitutionalist and diplomatist, and gave

audience throughout. His gestures, though not finished,

Edwin Farmer, the last of the class, had taken for his
subject "The Carthaginian Lion." He described Hannibal
as having but a single object in life, and therefore made a
success of that. He eulogized his fitness for his undertaking;
his power over men and his military genius. He traced
Hannibal's career through Italy, his wonderful success, and
placced the final failure to enter Rome, due to Carthage
rather than to Hannibal. The secret of his success was that
he labored for his fellow men rather than for heroic honors
