PATHETIC ODE TO THE FRESHMAN CLASS
On Friday night, March; 20,
the Sophs enjoyed a feast ofrare
sWeetmeats and still rarer good
times. The-whole class was in
a good humor, and speechesi that
were made in English that would
have shown up very poorly J in a
grammar school sounded ofl the
ears like the voices of Lincoln or
Webster. Some even say that
they enjoyed Mac Louis' (joke
about the Freshmen. The menu
of this occasion happened not to
be the smallest' part of ' the! pro
gram, and course after course of
tempting delights' was brojught
in on ebony waiters, the class
showing a decided preference for
ebony over the ivory , waiters in
vogue at most banquets of equal
tone. The. appetite . for ; each
course was whetted and coaxed
by a choice speech either by some
member of the faculty or by some
member of 1.91 f, truly an alto
gether unnecessary thing as far
as appetites were concerned, The
president of the class and toast
master of the occasion -Tom
Linn, introduced first Mr j Gra
ham. Mr. Graham spoke in his
straight, directly-applied fashion
on the subject of loyalty to the
University, and in his open,
friendly tone showed theideal
relation between students and
faculty. In the midst of his
speech members of the Freshman
class disclosed their true colors
and ideas of a University by
giving noble yells for 1917j and
rolling stones on the porch. In
response to Mr. Graham, Bill
Umstead spoke about debating.
The next speaker was Pr. Horace
Williams, who like Mr. Hester,
was at that time attending his
first Sophomore banquet. Pr
Williams put three types of men
up and compared them, showing
the greatest type for imitation.
On account of the disablement of
Meb Long, Bob House spoke in
his place, and made a very inter
esting talk about University tra
ditions, and the proper attitude
to be assumed toward them. Pr.
Booker was the next speaker, and
his talk concerned the choice of
life work for a boy. He describ
ed the custom the Germans have
had in applying thier urchins to
work along definite lines early in
there boyhood, bringing out both
the advantages and disadvan
tages of such a system. Mabel's
Champion appeared next, and in
highly indignant phrases con
demned the conduct at the Pick
wick. Everybody enjoyed Hers
chel's speech, and made it known -by
the outward sign of enjoyment
His speech was so forceful that
the class took a move to join the
Juniors in an effort to make our
Pickwick an affair of formality.
After this the whole class spoke,
not all at once but singly; at any
rate the whole class was called
MR. ALFRED rNOYES
Reads Own' Poetry1 With iFew Comments. Charges Armor
Trusts" With War1 Sentiment.
HIS PERSONAL QUALITIES AND MANNER w. WERE VERY PLEASING TO ; AUDIENCE.
! The members of the University
community 1 who : heard Alfred
Noyes' Wednesday night inGer
rard Hall came away .with the
knowledge .that they had had a
treat. To most of those present
the poet was a surprise and some
what bf-a revelation." " Thel man
himself, youthful, - did not fit in
with the popular : concept of a
great poet; whatever that concept
is. His appearance was more' that
of an athlete than of a litferateure.
His manner was straight forward,
at times almost aggressive. ! His
voice would not be called musical,
deep and rugged rather. ! The
sum total was an impressiveness
that seized and held his 'audience
from the moment he rose at Pr.
Henderson's graceful introduction
until he closed li is book, too soon
for every one present. .
Instead of a lecture on poetry,
Mr. Noyes read or rather talked a
few of his. best known and most
popular "poems. The nine that
he chose' were almost so many
different- types, yet' about and in
them ajl was something that
bound them together and distin
guished them as kin. It is hard
to improve on Pr, Henderson's
characterization of him as a new
poet with a new poetry. From
the light to the serious, from folk
lore to philosophy, in gladness
and in, pathos he seemed equally
at home with hissubject. Further,
that his knowledge of English
life was personal, intimate,? and
varied was apparent in the pic
teresque old Pevonshire seaman

Then came the revenge. The
law forbids hazing; therefore the
Freshmen are as big as anything
on the campus, '' and a big crowd
of them bigger than anything.
The bloody things were named;
that is those that could be named
were named, and some had to be
left out for lack of imagination
on ttie part ot the committee.
The list follows. This finished
up all indoor business.
Yells on the campus followed,
and a big bonfire at the ; "well.
The noise continued until 3:30,
Town was visited and stripped
of its signs; a wagon was left
intact in the Alumni building;
1917, a full-dressed dummy, was
strung up on the big oak near
Everything was happy,
Everything was gay,

Who Did Not and Could Not
Know", the "unpractical poet's"
reply to the scientific skepticism
upon the origin of the world was
fine. ''Electric Tram" with its
common and sordid little touches
incident' to the life of a London
street. But it was in his last two
selections, probably, that Mr.
Noyes showed himself best. The
first, "The Makers of War",
written as a prologue to a longer
poem on the Balkan war, is a
vivid arraignment , of the arma
ment interests of Europe, who
he charges were a large factor in
causing the' Balkan - war, that
they may sell their wares. Eng
land is indifferent to this war
because - they do not have any
adequate idea of the horrors and
suffering in its train, it is kept
from her, she "does not see the
blood". The last poem, on the
same subject, was written in an
swer to the charge that peace
with its luxury is the corrupter
of nations. He wrote intensely,
to the contrary, to the effect that
war with its cruelty is the brut
alizer of man. If you ' knew
nothing else about the poet,
from these last two ; poems you
would feel that the subject of
world peace 'was more than all
others in reality his theme. In
hearing him, the earnestness of
the man gripped you. He was
living what he read.
